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 intelligent- 
ly 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 con- 
tinuing intellectual awareness, of tolerance, and of unbiased inquiry, without which 
true education cannot exist. It does not seek to indoctrinate, but to inform and in- 
spire. 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, capacities, 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 con- 
ferences 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 
1892. Coeducation began in the seventh session. 

Millsaps' first president, William Belton Murrah, served until 1910. Other presidents 
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 Graves (1964- 
1970). Dr. Edward 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 in- 
tellectual maturity. The primary consideration for admission 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 advan- 
tage 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 Threatre, 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 Education 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 cor- 
respondence relating to the theatre and the arts; the Mississippi Methodist Archives; a rare 
book collection; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and curriculum 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, 
classrooms 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, badminton 
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 

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.

spring semesters. 

A prospective student should apply for admission well in advance of the date on 
which (s)he wishes to enter, particularly if housing accommodations on the campus are

1. Submit a completed Application for Admission Form with the $10 application fee to 
the Director of Admissions. The fee is not refunded to a student whose application is 


Request the high school principal or college registrar to send an official transcript

(b) If the prospective student is enrolled in school at the time (s)he applies for admis- 
sion, (s)he should have a transcript sent showing credits up to that time. A supple- 
mentary transcript will be required after admission. 

Freeman applicants must submit results of either the American College Test (ACT) or 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) . 


Counseling services are designed to help students accomplish maximum success in 
their academic work. Many members of the college community participate in counseling, 
and specialists are used as referral resources when problems require specialized therapy. 
Pre-Registration Counseling: The College provides counseling services to any pro- 
spective student who wants to explore vocational and educational objectives before 
entering classes in the fall. Students who are admitted are urged to take advantage of this 

Orientation: Freshmen and transfer students are expected to be on campus on dates 
specified in the college calendar. Orientation is planned and activated cooperatively by 
students and faculty to help entering students prepare for campus life. 
Faculty Advisers: New students are assigned to faculty members who serve as 
academic program advisers. When a student chooses a major field, the major professor 
becomes the adviser. 

Personal Counseling: The Student Personnel Office counsels students on vocational 
choices, selection of fields of study, study and reading skills, emotional adjustments and 
related matters. 

Testing: Individual testing services are available to help with self-analysis and planning 
in terms of aptitudes, interests and personality. 


The deans of men and women coordinate campus housing in cooperation with 
residence hall hostesses, counselors and assistants. Men who are active members of a 
fraternity may live in its house. 

Out-of-town students must reside in college housing unless they have written permis- 
sion from the Office of Student Affairs to live off-campus. Applications for permission 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 permission from the Office of 
Student Affairs. 

Residence hall rooms are designed to house two students each. Students wishing 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 eariy as possible. Assignments are made 
in the order in which this fee or completed applications are received, whichever 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 begins. 


Residence halls open at 10 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 10 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 addi- 
tional 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 appointments with 
the school physician or any other physician, except in emergencies, will accept financial 
responsibility of the appointment. 


The College has a Placement Office which is designed to serve students and alumni 
who are making career and job decisions. A well established campus recruiting program 
provides opportunities for graduating seniors to interview representatives from many 
organizations which schedule campus recruiting dates from September to April. Employ- 
ment decisions are the student's responsibility, but the Placement Office serves as a sup- 
plement to the student's efforts in identifying and securing the employment opportunity 
best suited to his or her qualifications and career interests. 

The College recognizes that many students wish or need to earn money in part-time 
jobs. The Placement Director assists those persons in obtaining part-time employment off 
campus. It should be noted that many Jackson employers have found Millsaps students to 
be excellent workers and therefore make many opportunities available.

Loan Funds 

The Federally Insured Loan Program. Under this program the student completes a 
federally insured application (OE 1154) and a Financial Aid Form. He sends the FAF 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 student 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 com- 
bined. 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 the first two 
academic years a total sum not to exceed $2500 and during the undergraduate course of 
study a sum not exceeding $5000. Payment of the loan begins nine months after the bor- 
rower has completed or withdrawn from higher education work and will be completed 
within ten years and nine months. The interest rate is 3 percent during repayment. De- 
tailed information concerning this loan and application forms can be secured from the 
director of financial aid at Millsaps.

Additional Financial Aid Operations 

Part-time Employment: Students who want part-time work on campus must apply 
through the Awards Committee. Students seeking employment off campus may contact 
the Office of Student Affairs. 

The College Work-Study Program has been established from funds contributed by 
the federal government and the college to provide financial assistance through employ- 

State Student Incentive Grants are provided by Millsaps, the state of Mississippi 
and the federal government. These funds are to help qualified students with substantial 
financial need. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal 
government 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 educa- 
tion 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 $1600 less family contribution (method of 
determining this contribution to be set by the Commissioner of Education) , or half the col- 
lege cost, whichever is less. 



Student life 


The religious life of the College centers around the churches of Jackson and the cam- 
pus religious program. 

Stimulation and coordination of campus religious life are the functions of the Com- 
mittee 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 and 
personal counseling both to individuals and to groups. Both the Religious Activities Com- 
mittee 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 pro- 
grams 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 in- 
volve 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 voca- 
tions, attempts to create programs and field work appropriate to the needs of student 


The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government to spon- 
sor programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major activity is the Fri- 
day 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 perspectives on con- 
troversial subjects. Faculty members, local authorities and national experts are invited to 
present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cultural, scientific, political and historical 

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 par- 
ticipate. 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 



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 

Competitive sports conducted in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship and fair play 
can make a significant contribution to the complete physical, emotional, moral, and men- 
tal development of the well-rounded individual. They are thus an integral part of a pro- 
gram of liberal education. An attempt is made to provide a sports-for-all program and to 
encourage as many students as possible to participate. 


The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, and tennis. Soccer is 
played on a club basis. The women's program includes basketball and tennis. 

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association and the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women of which 
Millsaps College is a member. 

Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to observe and maintain 
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 direc- 
tor 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, badmin- 
ton, 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 pro- 
vide coverage of all Millsaps events, as well as to serve as a forum for discussion and ex- 
ploration of ideas. 

Now in its seventy-second 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 Millsaps Players 

The Millsaps Players present four three-act plays each year. Major productions of re- 
cent years include "The Sea Gull," "The Three-penny Opera," "My Fair Lady," "Julius 
Caesar," "Camelot," "Romeo and Juliet," "Medea," "Becket", "Androcles and the 
Lion," "Camino Real," "Macbeth," "Luther," "The Rivals," "South Pacific," "Crown 
Matrimonial," and "The Day After the Fair." 

Membership in The Players is open to all students, and effective participation in the 
production 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 Stu- 
dent Senate and the Student Judicial Council. The Student Senate is composed of not 
more than 20 voting members elected from the Millsaps Student Association. Represen- 
tatives 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 required) . 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 constituency the length 
of the academic year. 

Officers of the Student Senate are elected at large from the Millsaps Student Associa- 
tion. 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 

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 Senate, 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 collegiate ac- 
tivity that are in most instances the responsibility of students," including 1) the apportion- 
ment 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) for- 
mulating rules of social and dormitory conduct; 4) the conduction of Student Association 
elections; 5) traditional class responsibilities; 6) the intramural program. 

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.

7. English Proficiency Requirement: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree each student is required to demonstrate profi- 
ciency 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 compelling 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 Session. 

All rising juniors, transfer students at the junior and senior levels, and seniors who

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 comprehen- 
sive 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 com- 
posed 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 (s)he 
has credit and in which (s)he is currently enrolled are those which fulfill the requirements 
in the major department, (s)he may take the examination in the spring semester if (s)he 
will be within 18 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 examination 
may have an opportunity to take another examination after the lapse of two months. Ad- 
ditional 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 all 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 attempted; 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 applica- 
tion for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of graduation. This date will ap- 
ply 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 ad- 
ditional 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. 

Chemistsy 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 Commit- 
tee (Berry, Beardsley, Saunders, Venator, McKeown) in designing a program that will fit 
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 interest. This catalog should be con- 
sulted 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 (s)he should obtain maximum preparation. In general, 
the student who is weak in some science, as shown by performance in introductory col- 
lege courses, is urged to take further work in that science to prepare adequately. The stu- 
dent should also utilize limited time in taking courses that will not be available during pro- 
fessional training. The following courses are recommended as electives by many medical 
and dental schools. 

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

Chemistry (251-252, 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, 311, 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 interest and need. 


A Program for students planning for or interested in exploring a form of 
professional Christian ministry 

Millsaps College has enjoyed a tradition of close involvement with students from all 
denominations and faiths— particularly from The United Methodist Church— whose voca- 
tional goal or interest was a form of professional Christian ministry. The Preparation for 
Ministry Program is designed to offer a wide variety of experiences for persons who have 
decided on or would like to explore some form of Christian ministry as a personal voca- 
tion. The specific purposes of the program are as follows: 

a. To encourage personal growth in relation to self and other persons. 

b. To explore meanings and forms of ministry and to encourage openness to the 
many ways that the Christian Gospel speaks to human beings and their worlds. 


c. To keep students closely in touch with the resources and personnel of their 
denomination or faith, and to serve as a liaison with key administrative persons of 
these bodies. 

d. To support students who wish to explore some form of professional ministry as a 
possibility for themselves. 

e. To assist students in developing a vision for their own ministry. 

f. To involve students in various types of competency training relevant to profes- 
sional ministry 

g. To provide a supportive, encouraging community for students planning for or in- 
terested in professional ministry. 

The Preparation for Ministry Program provides a basic link between the college and 
the conference/diocese/presbytery or other structure to which a student is responsible. In 
the case of United Methodists, the Program is a supplement to the Candidacy Program. 
This Program is also a clearinghouse for student employment in various capacities in con- 
gregations or church agencies. Participation by United Methodist students is obligatory for 
receiving the ministerial grant. 

The following is the format for the program on a four-year basis: 

First Year: Exploration of personal motivations for professional ministry through a 
variety of personal interviews, group sessions and programs; building relationships with 
other participants; exploring meanings and forms of ministry through interviews, pro- 
grams and field trips. 

Second Year: Personal growth experiences through two weekend personal growth 
seminars (one each semester) focused on self-development, assessment of style of work- 
ing with people and interpersonal relations, with continuing emphasis on the develop- 
ment of one's personal vision of ministry, and with optional personal growth experiences 
growing out of these seminars; experiences designed to expose students to working situa- 
tions (church school classes, youth ministry programs, etc.); training in knowledge and 
skills for particular tasks, with options according to previous experiences and interests, in 
areas such as education, music, youth ministry, group dynamics, planning process, and 
other areas to be designated as the need arises. 

Third Year: Internships to be developed in consultation with the student in order to fit 
his or her interest. (Internships will carry academic credit in the Department of Religion 
and will include careful goal-setting, supervision and reflection); consultations as prepara- 
tion for seminary choice and enrollment. 

Fourth Year: Further skill training; seminar based on personal growth, need assess- 
ment and goal setting. 

Special arrangements will be made for persons who transfer in after the first or second 
years of their college work and for persons with special circumstances. 

The coordinator for the Preparation of Ministry Program will be the Chaplain to the 
College, assisted by the Department of Religion and two pre-seminary students. These 
persons will work with an advisory committee which will include the Deans of Students, 
the Academic Dean, the Director of Church Relations, representatives of the Supervising 
Pastors of the two United Methodist conferences in Mississippi, representatives of 
denominations or faiths other than United Methodist, chairpersons of the Boards of Or- 
dained Ministry and other students who are interested in or planning for some form of 
professional Christian ministry. All incoming students who will receive the ministerial grant 
or who would like to explore Christian ministry as a personal vocation may secure a flyer 
and enroll in the Program in the Department of Religion or the Office of the Chaplain. 



No particular major or sequence of courses is necesseiry 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 faculty or major adviser and with the 
pre-law adviser in designing a program of courses that will best fit 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 agen- 
cies. Each student is urged to consult with faculty adviser to plan a schedule. 



A placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the direction of the Department 
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 cer- 
tification is required to major in some department other than Education. For endorsement 
to teach, the student must take certain specified courses in general education, specified 
courses in a 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.

Millsaps College offers a three year program for those who plan to enter schools of 
medical technology. This college work includes not only the necessary science and 
mathematics courses, but also courses in history, fine arts, sociology, composition, 
literature, and other courses which insure a liberal arts experience for premedical 
technology students. 

Millsaps College maintains a formal affiliation with several schools of medical 
technology which are approved by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the 
American Medical Association. This is the only qualifying board recognized by the 
American Medical Association, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, the 
American College of Surgeons, the American Hospital Association and other 
authorizative medical groups. 

The medical technology student is expected to spend the first three years at Millsaps 
College (or transfer here from another recognized college, with at least the third year spent 
in residence here) and the senior year at the approved hospital. The student must com- 
plete the general requirements for the B.S. degree with a major in biology. 


Students enrolled in approved schools of mediccil technology may transfer back the 
'inal 26 hours of work. The courses required for registry are accepted as completing the 
■equirements of 128 semester hours for graduation. The B.S. degree is awarded at the 
'Irst commencement exercise following the completion of the medical technology training. 

Medical technology students who wish to complete four years of college may secure 
:he B.S. or B.A. degree before entering an approved school of medical technology. 


Students may obtain baccalaureate degree training in the Medical Record Librarian 
Program at Millsaps College and at an approved institution. The correlated program of in- 
struction covers each phase of medical record practice. 

Millsaps College maintains affiliations with institutions with certificate training in 
■nedical record practice which are approved by the Council on Medical Education and 
hospitals of the American Medical Association and the American Medical Record 
Association . 

The medical record librarian student is expected to spend the first three years at 
Millsaps College (or transfer here from another recognized college, with at least the third 
year spent in residence here) and the senior year at the approved hospital. The student 
must complete the general requirements for the B.S. degree with a major in biology. The 
ourses required for registry are accepted as completing the requirements of 128 semester 
hours for graduation. A satisfactory grade on the examination for registration by the 
American Medical Record Association as a registered medical record librarian (RRL) is ac- 
cepted in lieu of the departmental oral comprehensive examination. The B.S. degree is 
awarded at the first commencement following the completion of the medical record 
librarian training and passing for the registry examination. 

Medical record librarian students who wish to complete four years of college may 
secure the B.S. or B.A. degree before entering an approved school of medical record 


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 completing 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 advisers in the fall 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 nor- 
mally earned. The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the pur- 
pose of scholarships and loans, which are not affected by participation in the program. 


The Washington Semester 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American Univer- 
sity, 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 im- 
parting a knowledge of government in action. 

Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity from the par- 
ticipating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Ad- 
ministration 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 participation in the program. 

The United Nations Semester 

A cooperative progra'm 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 individual 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 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 

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

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 in- 
terested in receiving college credit for such study may receive information concerning 
these programs from the chairman of the appropriate department or from the Academic 

Cooperative Programs 

With the permission of the Associate Dean and the chairman of the department in- 
volved, 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 ex- 
perience 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 participation 
and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate academic credit. See offerings 
451-452 in the Department of Economics, Accounting and Administration. 

Small Business Institute 

Students apply theory to practice by consulting small business management in the 
area. The program is sponsored by the Small Business Administration (SBA), an agency 
of the Federal Government. 



Millsaps-Gulf Coast Research Laboratory Cooperative Program 

Students at Millsaps College, especially those in the natural sciences, are permitted to 
enroll for one or more of the following courses at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory as a 
part of their regular program of studies. The Laboratory is situated near Ocean Springs, 
180 miles south of Jackson. Summer work at the laboratory provides first-hand 
knowledge of both marine and brackish water environments.

of the curriculum 


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

course is "C" or above, providing that the "E" precedes the higher grade on thei 
stu dent'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 while passing, and "WF" 

means withdrawal 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 numer 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 1968. 

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/her status at the beginning of the fall 

Student Status 

Only students taking 12 or 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. However, the original grade 
remains a part of the record. 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 the entire course shall be graduated 
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 exam- 
ination 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 Col- 
lege. Distinction or special distinction may be refused a student who, in the judgment of 
the faculty, has forfeited the 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 considered eligible on- 
ly if (s)he has the required index both on the work done at Millsaps and on 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 the department chairman for permission to declare as a candidate for 
honors. Admission requires acceptance by the chairman and approval by the Honors 
[!^ouncil. Entrance into the Honors Program becomes effective in the spring semester of 
he junior year. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program extends over three semesters. A student admitted will in the 
Second semester of the junior year enroll with the honors adviser in a directed study en- 
itled Honors I (Colloquium). Enrollment in Honors II and III (Research) will ordinarily 
ollow in the fall and spring semesters of the senior year. A letter grade will be given for 
2ach of these courses. The three semesters of honors work are intended to culminate in an 
lonors 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 
Jim of the Honors Colloquium is the total involvement of good minds in the exchange of 
deas and values centering around selected themes and areas of investigation of mutual in- 
erest to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in the Honors 
-'rogram . 

A candidate who completes the honors work satisfactorily, who presents and defends 
he 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 
Dver-all quality point index, who has 4.0 index in honors work and and who has 
Dresented a superior honors paper will be graduated with High Honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw the candidacy for honors at any time. Students 
Enrolled in honors courses are, however, bound by the general college rules for dropping 
i course and for receiving course credit. Candidacy may be involuntarily terminated at 
my 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 semester 
on which the scholastic average is based; 

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

(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 


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 
quality 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 
previcyis college term or semester and obtains permission from the associate dean. No stu- 
dent 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 at 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 concerned. 
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 cir- 
cumstance 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 

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 pro- 
bation 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 semester. 


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 students are enrolled. 

Students may be removed from probation by making a 2.00 quality point index dur- 
ing 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 (s)he is on academic probation more than two semesters during 
a college program. 

Disciplinary Probation— 

Students guilty of serious infractions of College regulations may be placed on 
disciplinary probation at the discretion of the appropriation dean or faculty commit- 
tee. Restricted attendance privileges may apply for such a student in all courses in 
which (s)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 circumstances, 
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 the total absences are equal to twice the number of 
class meetings per week. 

2. For any student— 

a. When (s)he has been absent three successive class meetings for reasons 
unknown to the instructor. 

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

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 the policy to each 
dags 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. Explana- 
tions 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 explanations are 
not in themselves excuses. This is peirticularly important in the case of absences involving 
missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar scheduled com- 
mitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from attendance on the 

two days preceding and the two days following vacation periods without the express per- 
mission of the associate dean. 


Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the college and 
the particular policies operative in each class. 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 cpmplete 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 ex- 
amination 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 

Student Behavior 

Millsaps students are expected to act with honesty and integrity in personal, social, 
and academic relationships, and with consideration and concern for the community, 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 dangerous drugs, such as mari- 
juana 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 statemerit 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, Millsaps 
College students have the right to review, inspect, and challenge the accuracy of informa- 
tion kept in a cumulative file by the institution. It also insures that records cannot be re- 
leased without the written consent of the student except in the following situations: 

(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 direc- 
tory 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 attendance, 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 Of- 
fice in writing prior to the end of the first day of classes.

Courses have been set up: 1.) to give students taking their language requirements a 
firm basis in grammar and an introduction to the literature; 2.) to provide a firm founda- 
tion for those students who wish some knowledge of Latin or Greek to help them with 
medical and other scientific terminology, with New Testament studies, and as a 
background for studies in Romance Languages and English; and 3.) to permit students 
without Greek and Latin to make direct contact with the Classical past from which our 
Western Civilization arose. 



The following courses are conducted in English; they are open to all students for elec- 
tive credit regardless of classification. Different courses in this sequence will be offered 
from year to year. 

301. Mythology. A study of the ancient myths of Greece and Rome and their influence 
on later literature; some comparative material may be introduced from Near Eastern, 
Indian, and Norse mythology. Offered Upon Demand. 

312. Greek Tragedy. After a brief introductory study of Greek theater production and 
the social-religious context of Greek tragedy, the class will read the main surviving 
works of the three great tragedians, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, and close 
with the two critical works, Aristotle's Poetics and Aristophanes' comedy about

counting 272, and Economics 201 before the junior year; Accounting 381-382, 391, Ad- 
ministration 275 and 362 during the junior year; Accounting 392, 395, 398, and Ad- 
ministration 221-222 during the senior year. Students may prefer to take 281-282 during 
the freshman year, 381-382 during the sophomore year, 395-391 during the junior year, 
and 392-398 during the senior year. 

Requirements for major in Administration: This program is designed to balance 
course work and practical application. 

An administration major must take Mathematics 103-104, Accounting 281-282, 
Economics 201, and Administration 271 before the junior year; Administration 221, 275, 
351, 352, 362, and Economics 303 during the junior year; Administration 353, 376, and 
Economics 361 during the senior year and one 3-hour elective course offered by the 
department, excluding Economics 202. 

Requirements for major in Finance: This program is designed to concentrate on 
financial analysis for decision-making. 


A finance major must take Mathematics 103-104, Accounting 281-282, Economics

ministration 221, 365, 369 and Economics 361 or 363 during the senior year. 

Program of Study of Public Administration: A program for students interested in 
public or government careers has been arranged in cooperation with the Department of 
Political Science. The student may major in either political science or in administration. If 
the student selects the major in administration, he may substitute certain required courses 
and will be required to substitute some hours of electives. 

Transfer Credit: Transfer students should normally expect to satisfy the statistics re- 
quirement (Administration 275) at Millsaps. The typical first six hours of accounting prin- 
ciples will normally satisfy the department's 281-282 requirement. The typical six hours of 
sophomore economics will normally satisfy the Economics 201 or 202 requirement. 
Transfer students will be required to satisfactorily complete at least 18 hours of courses of- 
fered by the Department to meet the requirement for the BBA degree and the major, 
regardless of the specific requirements satisfied by transfer hours. In some instances this 
may mean repeating certain transferred, upper-division courses. 

Suggestions for non-majors: Economics 201, 202, Accounting 281, 282 and Ad- 
ministration 131, 221, 222 are good entry-level offerings. Accounting XlOl-102 is an 
extra-curricula offering in the Department. Other courses in the Department are ap- 
propriate for electives, especially Economics 361, Accounting 272, 395 and Administra-
