Millsaps College has as its primary aim the development of men and women 
for responsible leadership and well-rounded lives of useful service to their fellow 
men, their country, and their God. It seeks to function as a community of learners 
where faculty and students together seek the truth that frees the minds of men. 

As an institution of the Methodist Church, Millsaps College is dedicated to 
the idea that religion is a vital part of education; that education is an integral 
part of the Christian religion; and that church-related colleges, providing a sound 
academic program in a Christian environment, afford a kind of discipline and 
influence which no other type of institution can offer. The College provides a 
congenial atmosphere where persons of all faiths may study and work together 
for the development of their physical, intellectual, and spiritual capacities. 

As a liberal arts college, Millsaps seeks to give the student adequate 
breadth and depth of understanding of civilization and culture in order to broaden 
his perspective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him to think and act 
intelligently amid the complexities of the modern world. The curriculum is 
designed to avoid premature specialization and to integrate the humanities, the 
social studies, and the natural sciences for their mutual enrichment. 

The College recognizes that training which will enable a person to support 
himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. On the other 
hand, it believes that one of the chief problems of modern society is that in too 
many cases training as expert technicians has not been accompanied by education 
for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, professional and pre-professional training 
balanced by cultural and humane studies. In an environment that emphasizes 
the cultural and esthetic values to be found in the study of language, literature, 
philosophy, and science, the student at Millsaps can also obtain the necessary 
courses to prepare him for service in such fields as teaching, journalism, social 
work, and business or for professional study in these areas as well as in theology, 
medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, and other fields. 

As an institution of higher learning, Millsaps College fosters an attitude of 
continuing intellectual awareness, of tolerance, and of unbiased inquiry, without 
which true education cannot exist. It does not seek to indoctrinate, but to inform 
and inspire. It does not shape the student in a common mold of thought and 
ideas, but rather attempts to search out his often deeply hidden aptitudes, capa- 
cities, and aspirations and to provide opportunities for his maximum potential 
development. It seeks to broaden his horizons and to lift his eyes and heart 
toward the higher and nobler attributes of life. The desired result is an intelligent, 
voluntary dedication to moral principles and a growing social consciousness that 
will guide him into a rich, well-rounded Christian life, with ready acceptance 
of responsibility to neighbor, state, and church. 

— adopted by the Faculty and Board of 
Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56 


information for 
prospective students 


Millsaps College, founded February 21, 1890, is one of the youngest colleges sup- 
ported by the United Methodist Church. In the late eighties, the Mississippi Methodist 
conferences appointed a joint commission to plan a "college for males under the 
auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South." 

Commission member Major Reuben Webster Millsaps, Jackson businessman and 
banker, offered to give $50,000 to endow the institution if Methodists throughout the 
state matched this amount. Led by Bishop Charles Betts Galloway, Methodists met the 
challenge. The charter was granted February 21, 1890, and Millsaps opened in the fall 
of 1 892. Coeducation began in the seventh session. 

Millsaps' first president, William Belton Murrah, served until 1910. Other pres- 
idents have been: David Carlisle Hull (1910-1912), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins 
(1912-1923), Dr. David Martin Key (1923-1938); Dr. Marion Lofton Smith (1938- 
1952), Dr. Homer Ellis Finger, Jr., (1952-64) and Dr. Benjamin Barnes Craves (1964- 
1970). Dr. E-dward McDaniel Collins, Jr. was named president in the summer of 1970. 


The close personal relationship among students, faculty and the administration 
is one of the most vital parts of the Millsaps experience. A liberal arts college designed 
to train students for responsible citizenship and well-balanced lives, Millsaps offers 
professional and pre-professional training coupled with cultural and disciplinary 
studies. Students are selected on the basis of their ability to think, desire to learn, 
good moral character and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration for ad- 
mission is the ability to do college work satisfactory to the College and beneficial to 
the student. 

Millsaps' 1,000-member student body represents about 30 states and several 
foreign countries. Students come from 25 religious denominations. All are urged to 
take advantage of the educational and cultural offerings of Mississippi's capital city 
of Jackson. 

Research facilities available are: The State Department of Archives and History, 
the State Library, the library of the State Department of Health and the Jackson Public 
Library. Together, they provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. 
Cultural advantages include: The Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Jackson Little Theatre, 
New Stage Theatre, Jackson Opera Guild, Inc., and musical, dramatic and sporting 
events held at the City Auditorium and the Mississippi Coliseum. 

Millsaps is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools 
and approved by the American Association of University Women and the University 
Senate of the United Methodist Church. It is recognized by the General Board of Ed- 
ucation of the United Methodist Church as one of its strongest institutions. 


The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 120,000 volumes and 500 periodical 
subscriptions. It provides individual study carrels and rooms as well as browsing and 
lounge areas. There is a collection of audiovisual materials and listening facilities. 
Special collections are: the Lehman Engel Collection of books, manuscripts, recordings, 
and correspondence relating to the theatre and the arts; the Mississippi Methodist 
Archives; a rare book collection; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and curri- 
culum materials; U. S. government documents; and the Millsaps Archives. 


The 100-acre campus is valued at about $11 million. The administrative offices 
are housed in Murrah Hall, built in 1914. Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall, built in 1928, 
was expanded and modernized in 1963 to create the Millsaps College Science Center. 
Gifts and grants have added completely modern equipment for science laboratories. 

The Christian Center, completed in 1950, was built with gifts from Mississippi 
Methodists, alumni and friends. It has a 1,000-seat auditorium, a small chapel, class- 
rooms and offices. In 1967, the stage was renovated into a modern theatre stage. 

The James Observatory provides excellent facilities for astronomy students and 
is also available to area residents. 

The Activities Center, dedicated in 1974, has courts for basketball, tennis, bad- 
minton and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also included 
in this multi-purpose facility. An olympic-sized swimming pool is adjacent to the 
Activities Center. Other athletic facilities include tennis courts and fields for football, 
baseball, soccer and track. 

The Boyd Campbell Student Center houses the offices of the deans of men and 
women, the bookstore, post office, student activity quarters and a recreation area. The 
grill and dining hall are located in the student center. 

There are three residence halls for women and two for men. All are air conditioned. 

The Academic Complex, completed in 1971, includes a small auditorium in which 
is located a 41 -rank Mohler organ. The Complex houses the departments of music, 
business and economics and political science. It also contains skylit art studios, a 
computer room, a listening laboratory, a music laboratory and classrooms. 


Millsaps College accepts without regard to race, color, sex, creed or n;itional origin

evidence of:

permission from the Office of Student Affairs to live off-campus. Applications for per- 
mission to live off-campus are in the Student Affairs Office and must be completed 
and approved prior to any intended move. Out-of-town students below the junior level 
are not permitted to live off-campus except in special cases as defined by the deans 
of men and women. Students who wish to live with relatives must have written per- 
mission from the Office of Student Affairs.

to room together should make every effort to pay room deposits at the same time and 
to specify their desire to room together. Single rooms are limited and those desiring a 
single room should pay their room reservation fees as early as possible. Assignments 
are made in the order in which this fee or completed applications are received, which- 
ever is later. Room preferences are honored unless the rooms are already taken by 
students who are eligible for them. Room rent cannot be refunded after the semester 

Residence halls open at 1 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 1 a.m. 
on the day following the last scheduled examination of each term. During Thanksgiving 
and spring holidays, the residence halls will close at 3 p.m. on the last day of scheduled 
classes and reopen at noon on the day preceding the resumption of classes. Students 
'are not housed in the residence halls during Thanksgiving, Christmas or spring holidays. 


Millsaps provides medical services for minor illnesses to those students living in 
the residence halls and fraternity houses. The services of a physician are available 
through the nurse on duty or one of the residence hostesses. Serious illnesses of those 
requiring long-term care are referred to a local hospital or to home on a private 
patient basis. 

The College will pay for the initial visit to the school physician, however, any 
additional visits to the school physician or any visits to another physician or specialist 
is the financial responsibility of the student. Students who make their own appoint- 
ments with the school physician or any other physician, except in emergencies, will 
accept financial responsibility of the appointment.

academic excellence and financial need. Information may be obtained from the director 
of financial aid. 

In instances of financial need, the amount of aid granted is based on information 
submitted by the College Scholarship Service of the College Entrance Examination Board.

Loan Funds 

The Federally Insured Loan Program. Under this program the student completes 
a federaljy insured application (OE 1154) and a Parents' Confidential Statement. He 
sends the PCS to College Scholarship Service listing Millsaps as the recipient. Then the 
financial officer at Millsaps will determine the student's need and recommend this need 
to the student's lender (a credit union, bank, savings and loan, and any other lending 
institution). If a need is shown, the government will pay the 7 percent while the stu- 
dent is in school; if need is not shown, the student must pay the 7 percent interest. 
It is up to the student to negotiate the loan with the lender of his choice. A student 
may borrow in one academic year a sum not to exceed $2500 and no more than $7500 
maximum for all years combined. Repayment of the loan begins not earlier than nine 
months nor later than one year after the date of graduation or withdrawal from school. 
The National Direct Student Loan Program. A student may borrow in his first 
two academic years a total sum not to exceed $2500 and during his undergraduate 
course of study a sum not exceeding $5000. Payment of the loan begins nine months 
after the borrower has completed or withdrawn from his higher education work and will 
be completed within ten years and nine months. The interest rate is 3 percent during 
repayment. Detailed information concerning this loan and application forms can be 
secured from the director of financial aid at Millsaps.

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal govern- 
ment to provide supplemental grants to other aid to assist in making available the 
benefits of higher education to qualified students of exceptional financial need who, 
for lack of financial means of their own or their families, would be unable to obtain 
an education without such aid. 

Basic Educational Opportunity Grant was established by the Educational Amend- 
ments of 1972 and is funded by the federal government. When fully funded, each 
student is entitled each academic year to a grant of $1400 less family contribution 
(method of determining this contribution to be set by the Commissioner of Education), 
or half the college cost, whichever is less.

6. Residence Requirements: 

One year of residence is required for graduation from Miilsaps, and 30 of the 
last 36 hours of academic work must be done in residence. The two exceptions allowed 
to this rule are: (1) students who have been approved for the prescribed pre-medical 
technologist program may take the last 26 hours at the affiliated institution and (2) 
students leaving to enter graduate or professional school may transfer back the final 
26 hours of work. In this latter case, however, residence will be required at Miilsaps 
for the second semester of the junior year and the first semester of the senior year. 

Three summer sessions will be considered as equivalent to the one year of resi- 
dence required. 

7. English Proficiency Requirement: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree each student is required to demonstrate pro- 
ficiency in English composition and usage by passing an examination given by the English 
Department. It consists of a 500-word essay written extempore within two and one-half 
hours on a subject selected from a list furnished at the examination. 

The examination is given by the English Department at two stated times in the 
academic year. The regular administration is on the second Thursday in November from 
4 to 6:30 p.m. in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. A special administration of the examination 


is given on the second Thursday in March from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in Murrah Hall to 
seniors who hope to graduate but who have not passed the Junior English Proficiency 
Examination. Seniors who fail the special examination and who think they have com- 
pelling cause may petition the Academic Dean for an extraordinary administration of 
the examination in the Summer Session following. If the Dean grants the petition, he 
may also stipulate that the student must audit English 101-102 during the Summer 

All rising juniors, transfer students at the junior and senior levels, and seniors 
who failed the examination in their junior year must be present for the November ad- 
ministration of the proficiency examination. 

Each student who fails the examination in November is assigned to a member 
of the English Department for remedial instruction. 

8. Extracurricular Credits: 

A maximum of 8 semester hours of extracurricular credits may be included in 
the 128 semester hours required for graduation. Of these, 2 will be required physical 
education credits. 

In addition, extracurricular credits may be earned for the following six categories, 
no more than one credit per semester for any category: 

1 . Physical education elective courses. 

2. College publications: Purple and White, Bobashela, Stylus. 

3. College government: class officers, members of the Student Senate, members 
of the Judicial Council, student members of the College Senate, student mem- 
bers of College Senate committees. 

4. Millsaps Players. 

5. Musical activities: Millsaps Singers, Millsaps Troubadours. 

6. Intercollegiate athletics. 

9. Majors: 

In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, the student must major 
in one of the following areas: Art, Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Accounting, Ad- 
ministration, Education, English, Finance, Geology, German, History, Mathematics, 
Music, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Religion, Romance Languages, 
Theatre, Sociology and Anthropology. 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate depart- 
ment of instruction. 

Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after careful consideration 
and with the consent of the head of the department. 

A major for each student must be approved by one of the department heads not 
later than the beginning of the junior year. Three cards will be signed by the major 
professor to show approval of the choice of a major; and these cards will be kept on 
file, two in the Registrar's Office, and one with the major professor. 

No junior or senior registration will be accepted as complete by the Registrar's 
Office without the signed approval of the major professor. 

10. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory com- 
prehensive examination in his major field of study. This examination is given in the 
senior year and is intended to cover subject matter greater in scope than a single 
course or series of courses. The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to 
coordinate the class work with independent reading and thinking in such a way as to 
relate the knowledge acquired and give the student a general understanding of the 
field which could not be acquired from individual courses. 

The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part written 
and part oral, the division of time between the two to be at the discretion of the 
members of the department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a 


committee composed of members of the department, and, if desired by the department, 
one or more members of the faculty from other departments or other qualified persons. 

A student may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses in which 
he has credit and in which he is currently enrolled are those which fulfill the require- 
ments in the major department. He may take the examination in the spring semester 
if he will be within 1 8 hours of graduation by the end of that semester. The examination 
will be given in December or January for students who meet the other requirements and 
who will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring semester. 

The time of the comprehensive examination given in the spring semester is the 
last week in April of each year. Comprehensive examinations will not be given during 
the summer except by permission of the Dean. Those who fail a comprehensive exami- 
nation may have an opportunity to take another examination after the lapse of two 
months. Additional examinations may be taken at the discretion of the chairman of the 
student's major department with the consent of the Dean of the Faculty. 

11. Quality Index Required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A. and B.S. degrees; 
248 for the B.M. degree. An over-all quality point index of 2.00 is required of ail 
students. Transfer students must have at least a quality point index of 2.00 on their 
Millsaps work. The index is always calculated on total number of academic hours at- 
tempted; however, an exception to the rule of hours attempted is allowed in instances 
where courses are repeated at Millsaps beginning with the second semester of the 
academic year 1972-73 and thereafter for purposes of raising grades. 

12. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written 
application for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of his graduation. This 
date will apply also to students who plan to complete their work in summer school. 
Forms for degree applications are to be secured and filed in the Registrar's Office. 

13. Requirements for Second Degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must have thirty 
additional semester hours of work beyond the 128 semester hours required for the 
first degree and these additional hours must include all of the requirements for both 
the second degree and the second major. 

14. Required Sequence of Courses for All Regular Students: 

Freshmen students shall enroll in the appropriate course in English composition 
(unless exempt by examination) and in at least one other prescribed course as listed 
in the Core Curriculum or The Additional Degree Requirements. 

Sophomore students shall enroll in at least two prescribed courses as listed in 
the Core Curriculum or The Additional Degree Requirements. 

Enrollment in the required language courses will begin not later than the first 
semester of the junior year. It is recommended that language be started in the 
freshman or sophomore year. Those freshmen who, by virtue of previous study, plan 
to satisfy the language requirement taking courses at the intermediate level only, are 
strongly advised to begin such courses in the freshman year while their experience in 
the language chosen is recent. 


It is the responsibility of the pre-medical and pre-dental students to consult the 
catalogs of the schools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirements. 
The following courses are required by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 121-122 8 hrs. Mathematics 115-116 8 hrs. 

Chemistry 121-123, 122-124 . 8 hrs. Physics 131-132 8 hrs. 

Chemistry 231-233, 232-234 .10 hrs. 
English 101-102 6 hrs. 


The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory 

Committee (Berry, Beardsley, Saunders, Venator, McKeown) in designing a program that 
will fit his particular needs, background, and interest. 

Millsaps College and many medical and dental schools strongly recommend that 
the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of his interest. This catalog should 
be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree requirements. Millsaps and 
most medical and dental schools also strongly recommend that the student develop a 
sound background in the humanities and social sciences. 

The student should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or dental 
school catalog are minimal but that he should give himself maximum preparation. 
In general, the student who is weak in some science, as shown by his performance in 
his introductory college courses, is urged to take further work in that science to 
prepare himself adequately. The student should also utilize his limited time in taking 
courses that will not be available during his professional training. The following courses 
are recommended as electives by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology (251-252, 381, 391 or 315) 

Chemistry (251-253, 264-266 or 363-365, 364-366) 

English (201-202) 

Economics and Business Administration 

Foreign Language (reading knowledge) 

History (101-102) 

Mathematics (223-224 or 225-226) 


Physics (301, 306, 31 1, 315, or 316) 



The Heritage Program (see page 21). This program gives the student a more 
flexible schedule and time to take additional courses of his interest and need. 


Students planning professional careers in the church should plan to attain the 
appropriate professional degree from a theological seminary, and should seek a broad 
undergraduate liberal arts basis as preparation for their professional education. Foreign 
language should be chosen as a degree requirement: German^ Greek, or Latin will 
provide the best preparation for seminary education. 

Pre-seminary students should consider majors in religion, ancient languages, 
English, history, philosophy, psychology, or sociology. Whatever major is chosen, such 
students should plan at least eighteen hours of work in religion. 

Students planning to work as directors of Christian education should consider 
the same choice of majors, and should also take a minimum of eighteen hours of work 
in religion, including Religion 252 (The Educational Work of the Church). In addi- 
tion, they should plan considerable work in courses in psychology and education, and 
should consult the adviser to pre-ministerial students for specific suggestions. 

Some students planning work in Christian education may wish to combine their 
undergraduate preparation for theological seminary work with a major in elementary 
education or a program looking toward certification for secondary school teaching. 
If one of these courses is chosen the appropriate adviser in the Department of Education 
should be consulted, as well as the adviser to pre-ministerial students. Requirements 
for teacher certification are quite extensive, and the student must plan a program 
which will cover these requirements while allowing a minimum of twelve hours work 
in religion, including Religion 252. 


All students planning professional careers in the church are urged to consult with 
the adviser to pre-ministerial students in planning a program to fill out the basic 
sequences suggested below, and one which will fit their individual needs and interests 
while preparing them for their professional education in a theological seminary. Pre- 
ministerial students should be in contact with their District Superintendent and 
Conference Board of Ministry, and students planning work in Christian education 
with their Conference Board of Education. Such students who are not Methodist should 
contact the appropriate official or committee of their own denomination. 


No particular major or sequence of courses is necessary for students planning 
to go to law school; there is no ideal pre-law program for all students. To do well 
in the study of law, a student should possess 

(a) ability to communicate effectively and precisely; 

(b) critical understanding of the human institutions with which the law deals; 

(c) creative power in thinking. 

Different students may obtain the desired training in these three areas from different 
courses. Therefore, the student should consult with his faculty or major adviser and 
with the pre-law adviser in designing a program of courses that will best fit his 
particular needs, background, and interests. The student with a pre-law interest should 
consult the pre-law adviser, Mr. Adams, from time to time. 


Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in social work should 
plan a broad liberal arts program with a major in one of the social sciences. Introductory 
courses in Sociology, Psychology and Social Work are essential. Other courses which 
are strongly recommended include Social Problems, Theories of Personality and Social 
Psychology. Internships can provide valuable practical experience with community social 
welfare agencies. Each student is urged to consult with his faculty adviser to plan a 


A placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the direction of the De- 
partment of Education. It seeks to further the interests of teachers educated at Millsaps 
College and to be of service to school officials who wish to secure able teachers. 

Millsaps offers a major in elementary education at two levels: kindergarten through 
the third grade; fourth through the eighth grade. Students may choose to certify in both 

A major in secondary education is not offered; the student desirous of secondary 
certification is required to major in some department other than Education. For endorse- 
ment to teach, the student must take certain specified courses in general education, 
specified courses in his major field, and specified courses in education. 

State requirements for teaching certificates are quite detailed and specific, and 
students must take the exact courses specified. It is the responsibility of the student 
at both the elementary and secondary levels to coordinate courses for certification to 
teach with requirements for graduation from Millsaps. 

At all levels students have an opportunity to do laboratory work in both public 
and private schools. 

The courses listed below are specific courses required to qualify for the Class A 
Elementary Certificate and the Class A Secondary Certificate.

The Honors Program 

The Honors Program provides an opportunity for students of outstanding ability 
to pursue an advanced course of study which would ordinarily not be available. In the 
spring of their junior year honors students participate in an inter-disciplinary colloquium 
which intensively examines a topic of broad interest. In the senior year, students carry 
out a research project on a subject of their choice. This thesis is presented before a 
panel of faculty members at the end of the senior year. Students successfully com- 
pleting all phases of the Honors Program receive the designation "with honors" in their 
major subject at graduation. Students interested in participating in the Honors Program 
should consult with their advisors in the fail of their junior year. 

The Oak Ridge Science Semester 

Under this program, sponsored jointly by the Southern College University Union 
and by the Energy Research and Development Administration, a Millsaps student may 
spend the spring semester of the junior or senior year studying and doing research at 
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. A full semester's academic credit 
is normally earned. The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for 
the purpose of scholarships and loans, which are not affected by participation in the 

The Washington Semester 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American 
University, Washington, D.C., Millsaps College, and other colleges and universities in 
the United States to extend the resources of the national capital to superior students 
in the field of the social sciences. The object is to provide a direct contact with the 
work of governmental departments and other national and international agencies that 
are located in Washington, thus acquainting the students with possible careers in public 
service and imparting a knowledge of government in action. 

Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity from the 
participating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public 


Administration of The American University in Washington. They may earn fifteen 
hours toward graduation in their home colleges. Six hours of credit are earned in a 
Conference Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and government meet 
with students. Three hours of credit are earned in a Research Course which entails the 
writing of a paper by utilizing the resources available only at the nation's capital. The 
remainder of a student's course load constitutes electives which are taken from the 
normal offerings of American University. In Washington the program is coordinated 
by faculty members of The American University. 

Millsaps will ordinarily send two students in each spring semester. These will 
be either juniors or first semester seniors and will be selected by a faculty committee 
in April of each year. Exceptionally well-qualified sophomores are occasionally accepted. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of his home college for the purpose of 
scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

The Unit-ed Nations Semester 

A cooperative program with Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, enables 
Millsaps political science majors to spend a semester making a first-hand study of 
the work of the United Nations. Participants may earn fifteen hours of credit toward 
graduation. Three hours of credit are earned in a Conference Seminar, which meets 
two days of each week in the United Nations Plaza. Members of the Secretariat, 
delegates, and special agency representatives often lead discussions in a planned 
program of studies. Students also earn three hours of credit by engaging in an indi- 
vidual research project on some phase of the United Nations. The remaining hours of 
credit are electives taken from the regular course offerings of Drew's liberal arts college. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose 
of scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

The London Semester 

Another cooperative program with Drew University gives upperclass political 
science majors the opportunity to study in London, England, for a semester. Fifteen 
hours of credit are earned in the social sciences, with primary emphasis on political 
science. The faculty, including a resident director from Drew, includes members of 
the faculty of the London School of Economics and Political Science, Oxford University, 
Leeds University, and other outstanding schools. Students live in a residential hotel 
in the heart of London. Provision is made for an optional pre-Fall or post-Spring tour 
of the Continent at a modest cost. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose of 
scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

Legislative Intern Program 

When the Mississippi Legislature is in session, selected political science students 
may participate in an internship program which permits them to observe the state 
law-making process. Students serve as aides to legislators and legislative committees, 
performing a variety of tasks such as research, writing, and marking up bills. Students 
also take part in a seminar with other interns to examine the legislative process. See 
Political Science 452. 

Public Administration internship 

With the cooperation of city, state and federal agencies, students who have had 
the introductory public administration course may be placed in middle management 
level positions. 

Study Abroad Programs 

Millsaps College maintains cooperative arrangements with the Junior Year Abroad 
program at the Institute for American Universities at Aix-en-Provence, in France, and 
with the British Studies at Oxford summer study program. Other study abroad programs are 
available in most countries of Western Europe as well as in Latin America. Students inter- 
ested in receiving college credit for such study may receive information concerning these 
programs from the chairman of the appropriate department or from the Academic Dean. 

Cooperative Programs 

With the permission of the Associate Dean and the chairman of the department 
involved, full-time students in Millsaps College may enroll for certain courses at either 
Belhaven College or Tougaloo College without additional fees. Belhaven College is 
located a few blocks east of the Millsaps campus. Tougaloo College is eight miles 
north, at the edge of Jackson. 

These cooperative arrangements afford an opportunity for students to enroll in 
courses either not offered at Millsaps College or not scheduled during the appropriate 
semester or at an acceptable class hour. 

Economics — Accounting — Finance — Administration Intern Programs 

Students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical 
experience through an established Internship Program. The program involves prominent 
regional and national business organizations and an agency of the federal government. 
The student's training is conducted and supervised by competent management personnel 
according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evaluation of the student's participa- 
tion and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate academic credit. See 
offerings 451-452 in the Department of Economics, Accounting and Administration.

Accounting, finance and administration majors must complete additional require- 
ments for bachelor of business administration degree (B.B.A. ). Economics majors must 
complete additional requirements for either a B.S. or B.A. degree. The requirements for 
a major in accounting, in finance or in administration are in addition to courses which 
may be used to satisfy the minimum college requirements for all degrees and cannot 
be used to satisfy both areas. Majors must make a grade of C or better in all courses 
required by the department. 

Requirements for major in Economics: An economics major is required to take 
Accounting 281-282, Mathematics 115-116, Administration 271 or Accounting 272

Sociology is the study of human interaction. Its focus ranges from intimate, face- 
to-face relations to the organization of whole nations. Sociology seeks to understand 
the ways in which people act together and to explain why they do so.

of the curriculum 


The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written 
examination. The examination is approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 
"A" represents superior work. 
"B" represents above the average achievement. 
"C" repflssents an average level of achievement. 
"D" represents a level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work of the class 

below the average in the same relationship as "B" is above the average. 
"E" represents a condition and is changed to a "D" if the grade in the other semester 

of the course is "C" or above, providing that the "E" precedes the higher grade 

on the student's record. 
"F" represents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of the class. All marks of 

"D" and above are passing marks and "F" represents failure. 
"WP" indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course \/hile passing, and 

"WF" means that he has withdrawn while failing. 
"I" indicates that the work is incomplete and is changed to "F" if the work is not 

completed by the end of the following semester. 

Quality Points 

The completion of any academic course with a "D" shall entitle a student to one 
quality point for each semester hour; a grade of "C" for the semester shall entitle a 
student to two quality points for each semester hour; a grade of "B" for the semester 
shall entitle a student to three quality points for each semester hour, and a grade of 
"A" shall entitle a student to four quality points for each semester hour. A quality 
point index is determined by dividing the total number of quality points by the number 
of academic hours taken. The change from a 3.00 to a 4.00 quality point index was 
made in 1 968. 

Class Standing 

The following number of hours and quality points is required: 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 24 quality points 

For junior rating 52 hours; 72 quality points 

For senior rating 90 hours; 144 quality points 

A student's classification for the entire year is his status at the beginning of the 
fall semester. 


Only students taking 12 of more academic hours will be classified as full-time 
students. Students taking less than 12 academic hours may not represent the College 
in extracurricular activities. 

A student who holds a baccalaureate degree and enrolls for additional work is 
classified as a special student. 

Repeat Courses 

If a student repeats a course previously taken at Millsaps College, the highest 
grade earned will be used in computing the quality point average. This regulation 
applies only to those courses taken originally, during, or after second semester 1972-73 
at Millsaps College, and thereafter. 

Graduation With Distinction 

A student whose quality point index is 3.2 for his entire course shall be grad- 
uated Cum Laude; one whose quality point index is 3.6 and who has a rating of 
excellent on the comprehensive examination shall be graduated Magna Cum Laude; 


and one whose quality point index is 3.9 and who has a rating of excellent on the 
comprehensive examination shall be graduated Summa Cum Laude. 

To be eligible for graduation Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude, 
a student must have passed at least 60 academic semester hours in Millsaps College. 
Distinction or special distinction may be refused a student who, in the judgment of the 
faculty, has forfeited his right. 

In determining eligibility for distinction or special distinction for students who 
have not done all their college work at Millsaps, the quality points earned on the basis 
of grades made at other institutions will be considered, but the student will be con- 
sidered eligible only if he has the required index both on the work done at Millsaps 
and on his college courses as a whole. 

Graduation With Honors 

A full-time student with junior standing who has an over-all quality point index 
of 3.0 may apply to his department chairman for permission to declare himself a can- 
didate for honors. Admission requires acceptance by the chairman and approval by the 
Honors Council. Entrance into the Honors Program becomes effective in the spring 
semester of the junior year. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program extends over three semesters. A student admitted will in 
the second semester of his junior year enroll with his honors adviser in a directed study 
entitled Honors I (Colloquium). Enrollment in Honors II and Honors III (Research) 
will ordinarily follow in the fall and spring semesters of the senior year. A letter grade 
will be given for each of these courses. The three semesters of honors work are intended 
to culminate in an honors paper presented to the Honors Council and defended before 
an examining board. 

The first semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium de- 
signed to bring together for intellectual exchange all students in the Honors Program. 
The aim of the Honors Colloquium is the total involvement of good minds in the ex- 
change of ideas and values centering around selected themes and areas of investigation 
of mutual interest to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in 
the Honors Program. 

A candidate who completes the honors work satisfactorily, who presents and defends 
the honors paper satisfactorily, who has a 3.0 over-all quality point index, and who has 
a 3.33 index in honors work will be graduated with Honors. A candidate who has a 
3.6 over-all quality point index, who has a 4.0 index in honors work and who has pre- 
sented a superior honors paper will be graduated with High Honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw his candidacy for honors at any time. Students 
enrolled in honors courses are, however, bound by the general college rules for dropping 
a course and for receiving course credit. Candidacy may be involuntarily terminated at 
any time upon the recommendation of the honors adviser and with the approval of 
the Honors Council. 

Dean's List 

Those meeting these requirements are on the Dean's List: 
1. Scholarship: 

(a) The student must carry not less than 12 academic hours during the sem- 
ester on which the scholastic average is based; 

(b) The student must have a quality point average for the preceding semester 
of 3.2; 

(c) The student must have no mark lower than a C for the preceding semester. 


2. Conduct: 

The student must be, in the judgment of the deans, a good citizen of the 
college community. 

Hours Permitted 

Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the normal load per semester. 

No student may take more than 17 semester hours of academic work unless he 
has a qua*lity index of 2.5 on the latest previous college term or semester. No student 
may take more than 19 semester hours unless he has a quality point index of 3.00 
on the latest previous college term or semester and obtains permission from the as- 
sociate dean. No student may receive credit for more than 21 hours in a semester under 
any circumstances. 


Schedule Changes 

A freshman may not enroll for more than eight hours of laboratory science courses 
in any one semester except upon the recommendation of the student's official adviser. 

No student can be registered for courses in another college at the same time he 
is enrolled in Millsaps without the written permission of the associate dean. 

A student cannot change classes or drop classes or take up new classes except by 
the consent of the associate dean, his faculty adviser, and all faculty members con- 
cerned. Courses dropped within the first two weeks of a semester do not appear on 
the student's record. Courses dropped after the first two weeks and before the middle 
of a semester are recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing). 
Courses dropped after the middle of a semester are recorded as failures. If a student 
drops a course without securing the required approvals, he receives an F. 


A student desiring to withdraw within any term must obtain permission from the 
associate dean and file a withdrawal card. No refund will be considered unless this 
written notice is procured and presented to the Business Office. 

Refunds will be made only as outlined under "Financial Regulations." 

A student who withdraws with permission after the first two weeks of a semester 
is recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing) in each course. A 
student who withdraws without permission receives a grade of F in each course. 

Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or any other 
circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for which he should 
have come to college. 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student. In such 
a case, the pro rata portion of tuition will be returned, except that students withdrawing 
under discipline forfeit the right to a refund. 

No student who withdraws is entitled to a report card or to a transcript of credits 
until he has settled his account in the Business Office. 

Automatic Exclusion 

To remain in college a freshman must pass in the first semester six hours of 
academic work. 

After the first half year a student must pass at least nine hours of academic work 
each semester to continue in college. 

Furthermore, the maximum number of semesters a student may be on academic 
probation without automatic exclusion is two. 


Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure may 
petition in writing for readmission, but such petition will not be granted unless convincing 
evidence is presented that the failure was due to unusual causes of a non-recurring 
nature and that the student will maintain a satisfactory record during the subsequent 


Probation is defined as follows: 

Academic Probation — 

Students who pass enough work to remain, but make in any semester a quality 
index of less than 1.5 will be placed on probation. Restricted attendance privileges 
apply for all courses in which such students are enrolled. 

Students may be removed from probation by making a 2.00 quality point index 
during a regular semester or during a summer session at Millsaps College in 
which the student is enrolled for at least twelve hours credit. A student is asked 
not to re-enroll at Millsaps College if he is on academic probation more than two 
semesters during his college program. 

Disciplinary Probation — 

Students guilty of serious infractions of College regulations may be placed on 
disciplinary probation at the discretion of the appropriate dean or faculty com- 
mittee. Restricted attendance privileges may apply for such a student in all courses 
in which he is enrolled. 

Class Attendance 

Irregular attendance indicates that the student may be having difficulties adjusting 
to the course or to college. The primary responsibility for counseling with students with 
respect to their absence rests with the faculty member; but, in the following circum- 
stances, the faculty member is expected to bring the student's unsatisfactory attendance 
record to the attention of the associate dean : 

1. For a freshman — whether his total absences are equal to twice the number 
of class meetings per week. 

2. For any student — 

a. When he has been absent three successive class meetings for reasons un- 
known to the instructor. 

b. Whenever a student's absence record is such that he is in danger of failing 
the course. 

This reporting of absences to the associate dean is for counseling purposes only, and 
has no effect on the student's grade. 

Individual faculty members decide the manner and extent to which absences 
alone will affect a student's grade. Each faculty member is expected to outline his 
policy to each class at the beginning of each semester. This may extend to dismissal 
from the course with a grade of "F" for reasons solely of absence. 

Absences are excusable only by the individual faculty member, but an excused 
absence does not excuse the student from being responsible for the course work. Ex- 
planations for a student's absence provided by a parent, medical doctor, or a member 
of the faculty or administration may be helpful to the faculty member, but such ex- 
planations are not in themselves excuses. This is particularly important in the case of 
absences involving missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar 
scheduled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from 


attendance on the two days preceding and the two days following vacation periods 
without the express permission of the associate dean. 

Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the college 
and the particular policies operative in his classes. Further details relating to attendance 
are in the student handbook, MAJOR FACTS. 

Senior Exemptions 

Students may elect to be exempt from final examinations in the semester in which 
they complete their comprehensive examinations, but only in those courses in which 
they have a "C" average or better. It shall be understood, however, that this exemption 
does not insure the student a final grade of C, since daily grades during the last two 
weeks shall count in the final average. Under no circumstances may a student be 
exempt from any examination in more than one term or semester. 

Students may be exempt from final examinations only in the semester in which 
they complete their comprehensive, scholastic requirements being met. 

Seniors may be allowed one special examination in any subject taken and failed 
in the senior year. Permission for such examination must be secured from the associate 

Sf-udent Behavior 

Millsaps students are expected to act with honesty and integrity in personal, 
social, and academic relationships, and with consideration and concern for the com- 
munity, its members, and its property. The Board of Trustees and the administration 
affirm the right of the individual to the privacy of his room. The use of intoxicating 
beverages is not a part of, nor does it contribute to, the total educational emphasis of 
Millsaps College. The use, possession, or distribution of intoxicants, narcotics, or dan- 
gerous drugs, such as marijuana and LSD, except as expressly permitted by law, is not 
permitted. The Board of Trustees does not approve of the use of alcoholic beverages 
on the Millsaps campus and does not permit the use of any alcoholic beverages in any 
public area of the campus. For the purpose of the statement, a public place is defined 
as any part of the campus which is not within the confines of the student's room. 
Gambling is not permitted on campus. 

A more comprehensive statement is contained in the student handbook. Specific 
regulations pertaining to academics, residence halls and other facets of campus life 
are available through the Student Affairs Office. 

Confidentiality of Student Records 

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Mill- 
saps College students have the right to review, inspect, and challenge the accuracy 
of information kept in a cumulative file by the institution. It also insures that records 
cannot be released without the written consent of the student except in the following 

(a) to school officials and faculty who have a legitimate educational interest, such 
as a faculty adviser; 

(b) where the information is classified as "directory information." The following 
categories of information have been designated by the Millsaps College as 
directory information: name, address, telephone listing, date and place of 
birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities 
and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of at- 
tendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational 
institution attended by the student, and information needed for honors and 
awards. If you do not wish such information released without your consent 
you should notify the Registrar's Office in writing prior to the end of the 
first day of classes. 



student life 


The religious life of the College centers around the churches of Jackson and the 
campus religious program. 

Stimulation and coordination of campus religious life are the functions of the 
Committee on Religious Activities, the Chaplain, and the Chaplain's Committee of the 
College Senate. The office of the Chaplain attempts to maintain direct contact with 
student religious groups to encourage and support their activities, and to provide 
religious '^nd personal counseling both to individuals and to groups. Both the Religious 
Activities Committee and the Chaplain's Committee, consisting of faculty and student 
members, attempt to determine the religious needs of the college community and to 
provide special programs and emphases as required. 

Student religious groups vary widely and have become less formal. Students desiring 
the more structural type of young adult programs are encouraged to affiliate with 
established activities in local churches of their choice. Some campus groups are organized 
along denominational lines, while others have a more ecumenical orientation and attempt 
to provide discussion, study, activities, and projects which will appeal to all students, 
whether or not they are affiliated with a specific church. 

The office of the chaplain reflects a desire for the religious life on the campus 
to involve an organized concern for the total needs of the Millsaps community. Persons 
and committees related to this office plan for concerns that are narrowly religious in 
nature as well as those that represent efforts to minister to personal needs of individuals. 

The Fellowship, an organization of persons preparing for professional Christian 
vocations, attempts to create programs and field work appropriate to the needs of student 


The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government to 
sponsor programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major activity 
is the Friday Forum Series — a continuing slate of speakers presented each Friday during 
the academic year. The objective of the series is to provide information and stimulate 
interest in current issues, to explore historical events and to present differing per- 
spectives on controversial subjects. Faculty members, local authorities and national 
experts are invited to present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cultural, scientific, 
political and historical topics. 

In addition to the Forum Series, the Public Events Committee sponsors special 
events throughout the academic year. It provides funds to student organizations and 
academic departments interested in organizing programs open to the entire campus. These 
include films, guest speakers and music recitals. At least once a year the committee 
sponsors a week-long symposium on a significant theme and invites nationally known 
figures to participate. During election years, candidates for state and local political 
office are also invited on campus to present their positions. 

All of these activities have to do with the true aim of liberal education: the 
liberation of the mind to grasp the world of nature and of human experience and 
action in all its richness and complexity, and to respond with awareness, sensitivity, 
concern, and mature judgment. 


The athletic policy of Millsaps College is based on the premise that athletics exist 
for the benefit of the students and not primarily to enhance the prestige and publicity 
of the college. 

Competitive sports conducted in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship and fair 
play can make a significant contribution to the complete physical, emotional, moral, 


and mental development of the well-rounded individual. They are thus an integral part 
of a program of liberal education. An attempt is made to provide a sports-for-all pro- 
gram and to encourage as many students as possible to participate. 


The program for men includes football, soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis and 
golf. There is no separate intercollegiate program for women. 

The program is conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association of which Millsaps College is a member. 

Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to observe and main- 
tain the same academic standards as other students. 


The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in basket- 
ball, volleyball, softball, tennis, track, soccer, and golf. Rules are made and administered 
by the Intramural Council, composed of student representatives with the intramural 
director as an ex-officio member. 

The program for women is administered by The Women's Intramural Council, 
whose student members head the teams that compete in such sports as touch football, 
badminton, volleyball, tennis, basketball, and softball. Election to the Majorette Club 
provides recognition for athletic participation. 


The Purple and White is the official student newspaper of the College, and its 
staff is composed of individuals interested in campus journalism. The P&W endeavors 
to provide coverage of all Millsaps events, as well as to serve as a forum for discussion 
and exploration of ideas. 

Now in its seventy-first year, the Bobashela is the annual student publication of 
Millsaps College, attempting to give a comprehensive view of campus life. "Bobashela" 
is an Indian name for good friend. 

Through Stylus, the College literary magazine, students interested in creative 
writing are given an opportunity to see their work in print. The publication comes out 
twice each year and contains the best poetry, short stories, and essays submitted by 
Millsaps students. 

The Millsaps Singers 

Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps in public perform- 
ances, campus programs, annual tours throughout the state, and to other areas of our 
United States. In recent years the choir has traveled to Colorado; to Washington, D.C.; 
to Atlanta, to record for the National Protestant Hour; and to Mexico. The choir has 
sung with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra three times, the Jackson Symphony, the 
Chicago Chamber Orchestra, and the New Orleans Philharmonic. Membership earns two 
semester hours of extracurricular credit for the year's work. 


The Troubadours represent Millsaps College locally, throughout Mississippi, the 
South, and frequently abroad. In 1964 they toured military installations in Germany 
and France for eight weeks. In 1967 they were featured in a concert with the Memphis 
Symphony Orchestra. During that summer they went to the Caribbean Command, per- 
forming for the Armed Forces under the auspices of the USO. In 1969, they returned to 
Europe for eight weeks, with programs scheduled in Germany, Holland, and Belgium. 
In 1 970, they performed at U. S. bases in Greenland, Labrador, and Newfoundland. In 


the summer of 1971 they toured Germany, Italy, Holland, and Belgium for eight 
weeks on their third USO tour to Europe. During the summer of 1974 they spent three 
weeks in Romania under the sponsorship of the Ambassadors for Friendship. 

Twelve students comprise the singing group and present a varied program of 
popular, folk, and semi-classical music in a fast-moving show that uses choreography 
and is accompanied by piano, percussion, and bass. 

The Millsaps Players 

The Millsaps Players present four three-act plays each year. Major productions of 
recent years include "The American Dream," "The Sea Gull," "The Three-penny Opera," 
"My Fair Lady," "Julius Caesar," "Camelot," "Romeo and Juliet," "Medea," "Becket," 
"Androcles and the Lion," "The Zoo Story," "Camino Real," "Macbeth," "Luther," 
"Oliver!" "Antigone," and "The Lion in Winter." 

Membership in The Players is open to all students, and effective participation in 
the productions earns one extracurricular credit each semester. 

Student Association 

All regularly enrolled students of Millsaps are members of the Student Association 
and have full power of voting. The Millsaps Student Association is governed by the 
Student Senate and the Student Judicial Council. The Student Senate is composed of 
not more than 20 voting members elected from the Millsaps Student Association. Rep- 
resentatives are chosen by petition, with no more than 40 signatures required for any 
petition (the Election Committee decides each year how many signatures will be re- 
quired). Only full-time students are allowed to participate in the election. Members of 
the Student Senate are chosen by the first Tuesday in October and serve their con- 
stituency the length of the academic year. 

Officers of the Student Senate are elected at large from the Millsaps Student 

Association. The officers are President, First Vice-President, Second Vice-President, 

Secretary, and Treasurer. The officers serve a term beginning and ending on the first 
day of February. 

Student Senate meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, with 
special meetings called by the Secretary at the request of 1 ) the President of the Sen- 
ate, 2) the Senate, 3) seven members of the Senate, 4) the President of the College. 

The duties and functions of the Student Senate according to the Constitution are 
"to exercise legislative and executive power over those non-academic areas of col- 
legiate activity that are in most instances the responsibility of students", including 
1 ) the apportionment of funds collected by the College as Student Association fees; 
2) the granting or revoking of charters to use campus facilities and funds by student 
organizations; 3) formulating rules of social and dormitory conduct; 4) the conduction 
of Student Association elections; 5) traditional class responsibilities; 5) the intramural 

The Judicial Council is composed of three ex-officio advisors and seven appointed 
members. The Dean of Men, the Dean of Women, and the Dean of the Faculty act in 
a non-voting advisory function. Seven voting student members in addition to three 
alternate members are nominated by a special committee of the Student Senate and 
are confirmed by the Student Senate, with a view to appropriate balance in regard to 
race, sex, and place of residence. 

No member of the Student Senate or the College Senate may be a voting member 
of the Judicial Council. Council members serve a term of one year. They are appointed 


before September 15. The Millsaps Judicial Council has jurisdiction over all student 
disciplinary cases except when an individual's eligibility to continue as a student is 
put into question because of academic or medical difficulties, its decisions shall be 
appealable to the President of the College.
