THE PURPOSE OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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.

Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56
HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
Millsaps College was founded in 1890 by the Methodist Church as a "Christian col-
lege for young men." The philanthropy of Major Reuben Webster Millsaps and other
Methodist leaders in Mississippi enabled the College to open two years later on the out-
skirts of Jackson, the state capital, a town of some 9,000 population. The beginnings were
modest: two buildings, 149 students (two-thirds of whom were enrolled in a preparatory
school), five instructors, and an endowment of $70,432. Fifty years later, the student
body numbered 599 and the faculty had increased to 33. Women were admitted at an
early date and the graduation of Sing Ung Zung of Soochow, China, in 1908, began a
tradition of the College's influence beyond the borders of the state.
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), Dr. Benjamin Barnes Graves (1965-1970), and Dr.
Edward McDaniel Collins, Jr. (1970-1978). Dr. George Marion Harmon was named
president in the fall of 1978.
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, 100-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, The Jackson Ballet Co. ,
New Stage Theatre, Mississippi Opera Association, 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
The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 150,000 volumes and 650 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 library belongs to the Central
Mississippi Library Council and the Southeastern Library Network.
THE COMPUTING CENTER
In today's complex society, students need to be able to understand the role of the
computer. Accordingly, a good college must have a strong computing resource. Millsaps
has one of the finest computing facilities available for easy student access. From several
terminal cluster locations on campus, students and faculty can use the Digital PDP-11
RSTS/E timesharing computer system which is located in the Academic Complex. Addi-
tional resources are the PDP-8/e laboratory and teaching computer and the EAI-TR20
analog computer which are located in Sullivan-Harrell Hall.
BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS
The 100-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices are
in Whitworth Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, is being renovated to house the School of
Management. Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall, built in 1928, was expanded and modern-
ized in 1963 to create the Millsaps College Science Center.
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 is an historical landmark located on the northwest corner of
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 office of student affairs, the
bookstore, post office, student activity quarters and a recreation area. The grill and dining
hall are located in the student center also.
■' There are three residence halls for women and two for men. All are air conditioned.
The Academic Complex, completed in 1971, includes a recital hall in which is
located a 41-rank Mohler organ. The complex houses Music, Art, Political Science, Con-
tinuing Education, Computer Services, Business Office, and the Office of Records. It also
contains skylit art studios, a student computer terminal room, a listening laboratory, a

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 enter-
ing classes in the fall. Students who are admitted are urged to take advantage of this. ser-
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 the major field, a major professor
becomes the adviser.
Personal Counseling: The Office of Student Affairs counsels students on vocational
choices, selection of fields of study, study and reading skills, emotional adjustments and
Testing: An individual testing service is available to help with self-analysis and planning
in terms of interests.
The Dean of Campus Life coordinates campus housing in cooperation with residence
hall directors, counselors and assistants. Men who are active members of a fraternity may
live in its house after the freshman year.
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 may be obtained from this 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 Dean of Campus Life.
Students who wish to live with relatives must have written permission from the Office of
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 early 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
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 hall directors. 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.
CAREER PLANNING AND PLACEMENT SERVICES
The College has a Career Planning and Placement Office which is designed to serve
students and alumni who are making career and job decisions. Career planning begins in
the freshman year and is pursued through the senior year by means of counseling, testing,
seminars and campus visitors. A well-established campus recruiting program provides op-
portunities for graduating seniors to interview representatives from many organizations
which schedule campus recruiting dates from September to April. Employment decisions
are the student's responsibility, but the Placement Office serves as a supplement to the stu-
dent'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.
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
released 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 Office of
Records in writing prior to the end of the first day of classes.
For a full statement of policy concerning the confidentiality of student records, con-
sult the staff of the Office of Records or the Office of Student Affairs.

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal

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 Concerns and the Chaplain, working with various groups such as
Berean Fellowship, the Koinonia Community, the Methodist Student Association and
Newman Club. 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. The Committee on Religious Con-
cerns, consisting of faculty and student members, attempts to determine the religious
needs of the college community and to provide special programs and emphases as re-
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 Preparation for Ministry Program, an organization of persons preparing for pro-
fessional Christian vocations, attempts to create programs and field work appropriate to
the needs of student members.
PUBLIC EVENTS COMMITTEE
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, religious and
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, tennis, and soccer. 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.

Millsaps College, attempting to give a comprehensive view of campus life. "Bobashela" is

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 Millsaps for the se-
cond semester of the junior year and the first semester of the senior year.
8. 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. Students who made
grades of A or B on English 101-102, 103-104, or 105 at Millsaps are exempted from this
The examination is given by the English Department twice in the academic year. The
regular administration is on the second Thursday in November from 4 to 6:30 p.m. A
special administration of the examination is given on the second Thursday in March from
4 to 6:30 p.m. 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 Dean of the College for an extraordinary ad-
ministtation 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
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 administra-
tion of the proficiency examination.
Each student who fails the examination in November is assigned to a member of the
English Department for remedial instruction.
In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, the student must major in
one of the following areas: Accounting, Administration, Art, Biology, Chemistry, Church
Music, Economics, Education, English, French, Geology, German, History,
Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Religion,

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate department
of instruction. Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after careful con-
sideration and with the consent of the chairman of the department.
A major for each student must be approved by one of the department chairmen not
later than the beginning of the junior year. The student must complete the proper forms in
the Office of Records.
No junior or senior registration will be accepted as complete by the Office of Records
without the signed approval of the major professor.
A student may have more than one major by completing the requirements in the
10. Comprehensive Examinations:
Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory comprehen-
sive examination in the 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 exmaination only if the courses in which (s)he
has credit and in which (s)he is currently enrolled are those which fulfil! 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 about
mid-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. Addi-
tional examinations may be taken at the discretion of the chairman of the student's
major department with the consent of the Dean of the College.
11. Quality Index Required:
A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A., B.S., B.B.A., and B.S. Ed
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 attemp-
ted; however, an exception to the rule of hours attempted is allowed in instances where
courses are repeated at Millsaps. (See page 51).
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 app-
ly also to students who plan to complete their work in the summer session. Forms for
degree applications are to be secured and filed in the Office of Records.
13. Requirements for a 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 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
PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL
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 111-112 or 131-132 in addition
Chemistry 231-233, 232-234. . . 10 hrs. to 151-152 8 hrs.
English 101-102 6 hrs.
The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory Commit-
tee (Berry, Beardsley, Nevins, Kahn, Venator) in designing a program that will fit par-
ticular 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.
Some medical and dental schools will not accept credit in laboratory science courses
obtained by CLEP or advanced placement tests. If the student plans to obtain such credit,
he should first consult the medical or dental schools in which he has an interest to be cer-
tain that the school will accept such credit.
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, 301, 381, 383, 391 or 315)
Chemistry (251-253, 264-266 or 363-365, 364-366)
English (201-202 or 203-204)
Economics and Business Administration
Foreign Language (reading knowledge)
Mathematics (223-224 or 225-226)
Physics (301, 306, 311, 315, or 316)
The Heritage Program (see page 35) . This program gives the student a more flexible
schedule and time to take additional courses of interest and need.
PREPARATION FOR MINISTRY
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 witfi 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 wodds.
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
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-
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 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, students should consult with their faculty or major advisers 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. Students are urged to consult with their faculty advisers to plan a schedule.
EDUCATIONAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS
Millsaps offers an elementary education major with certification in kindergarten
through the eighth grade. The student may receive a major in physical education with cer-
tification in kindergarten through the twelfth grade. The student seeking secondary cer-
tification must take specific education courses, courses in the area of expertise and addi-
tional courses in the core requirement.
It is the responsibility of the student at both the elementary and secondary levels to
coordinate courses for certification with requirements for graduation from Millsaps.

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
authoritative 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 affiliated schools of medical technology may transfer back the
final 26 hours of work. The courses required for registry are accepted as completing the
requirements of 124 semester hours for graduation. The B.S. degree is awarded at the
first commencement exercise following the completion of the medical technology training.
Medical technology students are encouraged to secure the B.S. or B.A. degree
before entering an approved school of medical technology.
MEDICAL RECORD LIBRARIAN
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
medical record practice which are approved by the Council on Medical Education and
Hospitals of the American Medical Association and the American Medical Record
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 genera! requirements for the B.S. degree with a major in biology. The
courses required for registry are accepted as completing the requirements of 124 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 Department of Energy, 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 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 earn sixteen hours of credit
toward graduation in their home colleges. Eight hours are earned in a Conference
Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and government meet with students.
Four hours are earned in a Research Course which entails the writing of a paper by utiliz-
ing the sources available only at the nation's capital. And four hours are earned in an In-
ternship, in which the student is placed in a government or public interest organization of-
fice. In Washington the program is coordinated by faculty members of The American
Millsaps has a guaranteed quota of two students for each spring semester, although
students may petition for entry in the fall. Second semester sophomores, juniors, or
seniors are eligible.
The student technically remains an enrollee of Millsaps College for the purpose of
scholarships and loans, which are thus not diminished by participation in the program.
The United 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 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 diminished 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

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
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
Cooperative Programs with Local Colleges
With the permission of the Associate Dean of the College 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.
School Of Management 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 School of Management.
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. Students should register for Administration 490.
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.

THE GRADUATE PROGRAM
Master of Business Administration
The evening Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has been established
at Millsaps in response to requests from the business and non-profit communities in the
Jackson area. Although designed primarily to meet the needs of part-time students, suffi-
cient coursework is offered every semester to allow full-time graduate students some flex-
ibility in planning a curriculum of study. A typical class includes men and women with a
broad range of ages, and with backgrounds from engineering, the physical and social
sciences, the arts and the humanities as well as from business. The following foundation
courses may be taken at the undergraduate level: Acct. 281-282; Adm., 220, 275, 321,
333, 334, 362; Comp., 110 and Econ. 201-202.
of the curriculum
GRADES, HONORS, CLASS STANDING
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" 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
"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.
"CR" represents passing work in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not com-
puted in GPA) .
"NC" represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not computed
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 1968.
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
Degree-seeking 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.
Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 12 academic hours will be classified as
A special student is a mature person of ability and seriousness of purpose who enrolls
for limited academic work and does not plan to seek a degree. The category of "special
student" is not intended to include recent high school graduates. Special students observe
the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency as regular
Credit/ No Credit Grade Option
Some courses have been approved to be graded either by letter grade or by credit/no
credit grading. The purpose of credit/no credit grading is to encourage students to take
courses in areas they might not otherwise select. Credit/no credit grading requires full par-
ticipation of the student in all class activities. Credit signifies work of passing quality or
above. It will not carry quality points nor be included in the G.P.A. Students are reminded
that (except for certain internship programs) courses graded by the credit/ no credit option
do not count toward fulfilling the 120 (124 for the B. M. degree) letter-graded hours re-
quirement and cannot be used to fulfill core requirements or major requirements.
When grade option is available, it will be incumbent upon the student to make the
choice at the time of registration. Any change in grading option must be made within the
drop-add period. (Exception: Theatre activity may be added later with appropriate ap-
A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. The
highest grade earned in that course will be used in determining the quality point average.
However, all grades reported for the course remain a part of the permanent record. This
policy applies only to courses originally taken at Millsaps during or after spring semester
1973 and to courses originally taken at other institutions during or after fall semester
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
Council. Entrance into the Honors Program becomes effective in the spring semester of
the junior year.
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-
titled Honors I (Colloquium) . Enrollment in Honors II and 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 exchange of
ideas and values centering around selected themes and areas of investigation of mutual in-
terest to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in the Honors
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 presented 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
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
Those meeting these requirements are on the Dean's List:
(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 of 3.2 for that semester.
(c) The student must have no mark lower than a C for that semester.
The student must be, in the judgment of the Dean, a good citizen of the college
Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the normal load per semester.
No student may take more than 17 semester hours of academic work unless s(he) has
a quality index of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 19 semester
hours unless (s)he has a quality point index of 3.00 on the last semester and obtains per-
mission from the Dean. No student may receive credit for more than 21 hours in a
semester under any circumstances. In order to be classified as a full-time student, one
must take no fewer than 12 semester hours.
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 adviser.
No student can be registered for courses in another college while being enrolled at
Millsaps without the written permission of the Dean of the College or the Associate Dean
of the College.
A student cannot change classes, drop classes or take up new classes except by the
consent of the faculty adviser. 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 no
later than one week after the reporting date for mid-semester grades are recorded as WP
(withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing). Courses dropped after this time are
recorded as F. If a student drops a course without securing the required approvals, (s)he
receives an F.
A student desiring to withdraw within any term must obtain permission from the
Dean or Associate Dean of the College and file a withdrawal card. No refund will be con-
sidered 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 (s)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 grade report or to a transcript of credits un-
til (s)he has settled accounts in the Business Office.
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 suspension is two.
Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure may petition
in writing for re-admission, 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.
However, such a student may attend the summer session at Millsaps without a petition.
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 index during
a regular semester or during a summer session at Millsaps College in which the
student is enrolled for at least twelve academic hours credit. A student is asked
not to re-enroll at Millsaps College if (s)he is on academic probation more than
Students guilty of serious infractions of College regulations may be placed on dis-
ciplinary probation at the discretion or the appropriate dean or faculty committee.
Restricted attendance privileges may apply for such a student in all courses in which
(s)he is enrolled.
Irregular attendance indicates that the student may be having difficulties adjusting to the
course or to college. The primary responsibility for counseling students with respect to
their absence rests with the faculty member; but, in the following circumstances, the facul-
ty member is expected to report in writing the student's unsatisfactory attendance record
to the Office of Records.
1. For a Freshman — whenever 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 is for counseling purposes only, and has no effect on the stu-
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 in
writing 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. Explana-
tion 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 particularly 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 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.
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 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 Dean or
Associate Dean of the College.
Students may request exemption from other requirements by petition to the Dean of
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 allowed 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.

Assistant Professor: CATHERINE RUGGIERO FREIS, M.A,
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
elective credit regardless of classification. Different courses in this sequence will be offered
from year to year.
301. Myth and Man (3). A study of the ancient myths of Greece and Rome and their
influence on later literature with comparative material introduced from Near Eastern,
American Indian, and Norse mythology. Offered Fall, 1982.
302. Greek Tragedy (3). After a brief introductory study of Greek theater produc-
tion and the social-religious context of Greek tragedy, the class will read the main sur-
viving works of the three great tragedians, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, and
close with two critical works, Aristotle's Poetics and Aristophanes' comedy about
tragedy, The Frogs. Offered Spring, 1982.
303. The Classical Epic (4). At the head of Western literature and thought stand the
two Homeric poems, the Iliad and the Odyssey. The class will begin by studying the
Homeric poems in themselves and as shaping factors in Western civilization. Then, after
a brief study of the later Greek works, Hesiod's Works and Days and Descent of the
Gods and Appollonius' Voyage of the Argo, it will turn to Vergil's Aeneid, in which the
Homeric poems are transformed in the service of a quite different but no less important
vision of man.
304. Classical Art and Archaeology (3). This course will focus on the changing vi-
sion of the world and human experience in ancient art and the forms and techniques
which artists evolved to represent that vision. The class will also examine the tech-
niques and the efforts of archaeologists to bring the lost works of ancient civilization to
light. There will be field trips to the Museum of Classical Archaeology at the University
of Mississippi and to active archaeological sites in Mississippi. Offered Fall, 1981.
305. The Classical Historians (3). A reading of major portions of the first great
historians of the West, Herodotus, Thucydides, Polybius and Tacitus; the class will
focus especially on the conceptions of the world, man, and the proper aims and
methods of history which underlie and shape each writer's works. Offered Spring,
306. Athens: The Life of a Greek City-State (3). This course will explore the pattern
of life in the Greek city-state Athens in all its many dimensions from the Age of the
Tyrants through the Golden Age of Pericles and the political struggles and cultural
flowering of the fourth century to its struggle against and absorption into the world-
empire of Alexander the Great. The course will make substantial use of writings by
Greek authors and some use of audio-visual illustrations so that as much as possible the
Greek experience will speak for itself.

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Accounting and administration ma-
jors must complete additional requirements for the 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 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 School of Management.
At least 51 hours must be earned in courses offered by the School of Management
and at least 51 hours must be earned outside the School of Management.
Coursework at the 300-level or above may be taken only by students who have com-
pleted at least 60 semester hours.
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 201-202 requirement.
Transfer students will be required to satisfactorily complete at least 18 hours of courses of-
fered by the School of Management to meet the requirement for the BBA degree and the
major, regardless of the specific requirements satisfied by transfer hours. In some in-
stances this may mean repeating certain transferred, upper-division courses. Students
should not expect to transfer credit in courses numbered at the 300-level or above from a
community college to Millsaps.

tion for the CPA examination. Accounting majors must complete the requirements for a

tion major are very flexible and, in addition to the general requirements for the degree, af-
ford students the opportunity to take advanced electives which will provide a foundation
to enter several professional fields. At the present time, a student may concentrate his or
her electives in Computer Studies, Finance, International Studies, Marketing, Personnel
Administration, and Public Administration. Academic advisors can design a curriculum
which will meet the individual needs of the student and provide concentrations in these
areas or, alternately, a student may pursue a broad approach without any specific area
concentration. Although the concentrations are interdisciplinary and may require courses
outside the School of Management, at least 51 hours must be taken in the School of
Administration majors should take Accounting 281-282, Economics 201-202, Com-
puter 100, and Administration 220 and 275 before their junior year. Administration 321,
