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 aca- 
demic 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 at- 
mosphere where persons of all faiths may study and work together for the de- 
velopment 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 per- 
spective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him to think and act intelligently 
amid the complexities of the modern world. The curriculum is designed to avoid 
premature specialization and to integrate the humanities, the social studies, and 
the natural sciences for their mutual enrichment. 

The college recognizes that training which will enable a person to support 
himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. On the other 
hand, it believes that one of the chief problems of modern society is that in too 
many cases training as expert technicians has not been accompanied by educa- 
tion for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, professional and pre-professional train- 
ing 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 
inspire. It does not shape the student in a common mold of thought and ideas, 
but rather attempts to search out his often deeply hidden aptitudes, capacities, 
and aspirations and to provide opportunities for his maximum potential develop- 
ment. 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 respon- 
sibility to neighbor, state, and church. 

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

Information for Prospective Students 


Millsaps College was founded in 1 890 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 prepara- 
tory school), five instructors, and an endowment of $70,432. Fifty years later, the stu- 
dent 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 (1 91 0-1 91 2), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins (1 91 2-1 923), 
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 profes- 
sional and pre-professional training coupled with cultural and disciplinary studies. Stu- 
dents are selected on the basis of their ability to think, desire to learn, good moral 
character and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration for admission is the abili- 
ty to do college work satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the student. 

Millsaps' 1 ,300-member student body represents about 35 states and several for- 
eign countries. Students come from 25 religious denominations. All are urged to take 
advantage of the educational and cultural offerings of Mississippi's capital city of Jackson. 

Research facilities available are: the State Department of Archives and History, the 
State Library, the library of the State Department of Health, and the Jackson Public 
Library. Together, they provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. Cul- 
tural advantages include: the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Mississippi, 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 Edu- 
cation of the United Methodist Church as one of its strongest institutions. 


The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 200,000 volumes and 700 periodical 
subscriptions. It provides 390 seats in individual study carrels, tables and rooms as well 
as browsing and lounge areas. There is a collection of audio-visual materials and listen- 
ing facilities. Special collections are: the Lehman Engel Collection of books and record- 
ings; the Mississippi Methodist Archives; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and 
curriculum materials; the Eudora Welty collection; U.S. Government Documents; the 
Millsaps Archives; and a rare book collection. Coin-operated word processors are avail- 
able. The library is a member of the Central Mississippi Library Council and the 
Southeastern Library Network. 


In today's increasingly complex and information-driven society, students need to 
understand the role of computing. Millsaps has developed outstanding computer 
resources to meet this need. From several terminal complexes on campus students have 
access to the Digital Equipment RSTS/E and VAX/VMS timesharing systems which are 
located in the Computing Center in the Academic Complex. In addition, a word process- 
ing facility for student use is available in the Library. To meet the growing interest in 
use of personal computers, the College has established three personal computer labora- 
tories: one in the Murrah Hall Annex, one in Murrah Hall, and one in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. 


The 100-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices 
are in Whitworth Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, was renovated in 1981 to house the 
School of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall, built in 1928 and renovated in 
1963, houses the science program. 

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

The James Observatory is an historical landmark located on the northwest corner 
of the campus. 

The Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1 974, has courts for basketball, tennis, 
badminton, and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also included 
in this multi-purpose facility. An outdoor swimming pool is adjacent to this facility. Other 
athletic facilities include tennis courts and fields for football, baseball, soccer, and track. 

The Boyd Campbell Student Center houses the Office of Student Affairs, the book- 
store, post office, student activity quarters and a recreation area. The grill and dining 
hall are located in the student center also. 

There are two residence halls for women and two for men. A new dormitory for 
upperclass men and women opened in the fall of 1985 and another is scheduled for 
occupancy in the fall of 1986. All are air conditioned. 

The Academic Complex, completed in 1971, includes a recital hall in which is lo- 
cated a 41 -rank Mohler organ. The complex houses Music, Art, Political Science, Com- 
puter Services, Business Office, Office of Records, Business Affairs and the Office of 
Adult Learning. It also contains sky-lit art studios, a student computer terminal room, 
a music laboratory and classrooms. 


Millsaps College accepts without regard to race, color, sex, creed, or national ori- 
gin all who are qualified to benefit from its academic program. Applicants must furnish 
evidence of: 

1. Good moral character 

2. Sound physical and mental health

tution of higher learning. A completed application for admission and transcripts show- 
ing all work attempted at other colleges or universities are required. These policies apply 
to the transfer applicant: 

1 . Full credit is normally allowed for work taken at other accredited institutions. Some 
courses which are not regarded as consistent with a liberal arts curriculum may not

take additional work at a junior college and have it apply toward a degree from Mill- 
saps College.

the number of hours of academic credit remaining on graduation requirements after 
transfer credits are entered.

the Office of Records prior to the end of the first month of enrollment. The following

requirements in effect at the time of readmission or do additional work in their major

Advanced Placement and Credit by Examination 

Students entering Millsaps College may earn a waiver of certain requirements or 
college credit as a result of their performance on specific examinations. The amount 
of waiver or credit is limited to eight hours in any discipline and to 18 hours overall, 
with the exception of the Adult Degree Program where the limits are 12 and 30 hours 

Scores on the appropriate C.L.E.P. subject matter examination, Advanced Place- 
ment examination, or C.E.E.B. achievement test should be sent to the Office of Records 
for evaluation. If a waiver of requirements or credit is granted, the score on the exami- 
nation used will be recorded on the student's record in lieu of a letter grade. An ad- 
ministrative fee will be assessed for each course so recorded. (See the section on Special

For information concerning scores necessary to attain course credit for other ex- 
aminations, such as C.L.E.P., interested students should consult with the appropriate 
department chairman or the dean of the college. 


Prospective students should apply for admission well in advance of the date on 
which they wish to enter, particularly if housing accommodations on the campus are 
desired. The Admissions Committee acts on applications for both the spring and fall 
semesters as credentials are completed. 

In applying for admission a prospective student should follow this procedure: 

1. Submit a completed application for admission form with the application fee to the 
director of admissions. The fee is not refunded to a student unless the application 
is not approved. 

2. Request the high school principal or college registrar to send an official transcript 
directly to the director of admissions. 

(a) Transfers must include a transcript from every college or university attended. 

(b) A prospective student enrolled in school at the time of application for admis- 
sion should have a transcript sent showing credits up to that time. A sup- 
plementary transcript will be required after admission. 

3. Freshman applicants must submit results of either the American College Test (A.C.T.) 
or Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.) 

Applicants to the Adult Degree Program should apply directly to the director of 
the Adult Degree Program. Applicants for the Master of Business Administration 
degree should apply directly to the director of the MBA Program. 


Counseling services are designed to help students accomplish maximum success 
in their academic work. Many members of the college community participate in coun- 
seling, and specialists are used as referral resources when problems require special- 
ized therapy. 

Pre-Registration Counseling: The college provides counseling services to any 
prospective 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 service. 

Orientation: Freshmen and transfer students are expected to be on campus on dates 
specified in the college calendar. Orientation is planned and carried out cooperatively 
by students and faculty to help entering students prepare for campus life. 
Faculty Advisors: New students are assigned to faculty members who serve as aca- 
demic advisors. When a student chooses the major field, a professor in that field be- 
comes the advisor. 

Personal Counseling: The Guidance and Career Counseling Center is available to 
students for personal counseling, exploration and evaluation of both academic and career 
goals and placement. 

Testing: An individual testing service is available to help with self-analysis and plan- 
ning in terms of interests. 


The dean and associate dean of student affairs coordinate housing in cooperation 
with residence hall directors and resident assistants. Men who are active members of 
a fraternity may live in its house after their freshman year. 

All freshman men and women, unless they are married or live with members of 
their immediate families in Jackson or vicinity, are required to reside on campus in col- 
lege residence halls and to dine on campus, also. Exceptions to this policy are unusual 
and must be authorized through the Office of the Dean 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 a student desiring 
a single room should pay his room reservation fee as early as possible. Assignments 
are made in the order in which this fee or a completed application is 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. 

The quiet wing option is offered for students who wish to live in an environment 
where study is possible 24 hours a day. 


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. For Thanksgiving 
and spring holidays, the residence halls will close at 3 p.m. on the last day of sched- 
uled classes and reopen at noon on the day preceding the resumption of classes. Stu- 
dents are not housed in the residence halls during Thanksgiving, Christmas, or spring 


Millsaps provides medical services to its students who are suffering from minor 
illnesses. The services are limited to students living in Millsaps residence halls and frater- 
nity houses. Medical services through the college physician are available through the 
nurse on duty or, in her absence, one of the residence hall directors or the Office of 
Student Affairs. 

The college pays for the initial visit to the college physician for each illness. 


Career planning begins with the freshman year and is pursued, via testing, advis- 
ing, counseling, seminars, internships, externships and on-campus interviewing, through 
the senior year. Special workshops are offered throughout the year on resume writing, 
interview preparation, career opportunities, job search techniques and summer employ- 
ment. "SAPS", a career advisory network, pairs Millsaps students with professional alumni 
and gives students a chance to gam firsthand exposure to a variety of professions and 
career options. 

Part-time positions both on and off campus are available through the Career Plan- 
ning and Placement Office. Millsaps College has an excellent reputation with the Jack- 
son business community based on past employment experiences with Millsaps students. 

Placement files, containing credentials, are maintained for interested students and 
alumni at no charge. 


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

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

(b) where the information is classified as "directory information." The following 
categories of information have been designated by Millsaps College as directo- 
ry information: name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major 
field of study, participation in officially recognized activites 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.

Guaranteed Student Loan Program. Under this program the student will com- 
plete the Guaranteed Student Loan Application for the Agency of his or her home state 
and a Financial Aid Form (and the Guaranteed Student Loan Needs Test, if the family 
adjusted gross income is over $30,000.00) He/she sends the Financial Aid Form to the 
College Scholarship Service listing Millsaps as the recipient. The student should send 
the Guaranteed Loan Application to Millsaps so that the college can complete its por- 
tion of this form. Once the student and college officials have completed their portions, 
the student should then take the completed form to a lender (a Credit Union, Bank, 
Savings and Loan, and any other lending institution). If the student can not find a lender, 
he/she should contact the financial aid office at Millsaps. The interest on these loans 
varies between 7, 8 and 9 percent. If the student qualifies the federal government will 
pay the interest while the student is in school. The student may borrow in one academic 
year a sum not to exceed $2500.00 as an undergraduate nor $5,000.00 as a graduate 
student and no more than $12,500.00 maximum for all undergraduate years nor

their educational expenses under this program. Applications for this program may be

14%. At the present time the rate is 12%. For a parent borrower $3000.00 is the maxi- 
mum per academic year for each dependent undergraduate student not to exceed a 
total of $15,000.00. An independent undergraduate student may borrow $2500.00 max- 
imum per academic year with a total of PLUS and GSL not to exceed $1 2,500.00. The

gins the day the loan is disbursed and interest begins to accrue that day. The first pay- 
ment IS due within 60 days of the date the loan is disbursed. The borrower must make

rower is allowed at least 5 years but not more than 10 years to repay the loan.

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

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 
inancial need. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are provided by the federal 
government to provide supplemental grants to other aid to assist in making available 
:he benefits of higher education to qualified students of exceptional financial need who, 
■or lack of financial means of their own or their families, would be unable to obtain an 
3ducation without such aid. 

The Pell Grant was established by the Educational Amendments of 1972 and is 
■unded by the federal government. When the grant is fully funded, each student is enti- 
:led each academic year to a grant of $2, 1 00 less family contribution (method of deter- 
Tiining this contribution to be set by the U.S. Commissioner of Education), or half the

student Life 


Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches of the city of Jackson and 
the religious life program coordinated through the Campus Ministry Team and other 
organizations on campus. Churches provide communities of faith for students, faculty, 
and staff. The campus religious life program works to enhance the spiritual growth of 
members of the community. The emphasis is on the development of an informed com- 
mitment to a life of faith in the world. 

To meet this goal, the campus ministry program at Millsaps utilizes as fully as pos- 
sible the experiences of students in the classroom and the questions raised about the 
meaning of a life of faith as a point of departure. Programs concerning the relationship 
of faith to issues raised in the classroom, to questions about the focus of one's life and 
to questions about the meaning of being human are a focal point of the campus minis- 
try program of the college. 

Campus ministry at Millsaps is coordinated through the Campus Ministry Team, 
a group of about 35-40 students and staff, with faculty advisor, who plan for the college 
community. The team works through task groups responsible for the various programs 
and projects of the Team: the weekly chapel services, voluntary service opportunities, 
faculty-student forums on various issues, sponsorship of events on the Friday Forum 
Series, devotional booklets written by students, faculty and staff; events in connection 
with the annual Student Symposium and others. 

In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and 
Inter-varsity Christian Fellowship sponsor groups on campus, as does the Catholic Church 
in the form of Catholic Campus Ministries. All campus ministry is strongly ecumenical. 
Furthermore, in addition to the College Chaplain, the college has been fortunate to have 
additional parttime and fulltime persons at various times working on campus through 
the United Methodist Mission Intern Program, the Catholic VOICE program and Inter- 
Varsity Christian Fellowship. 

The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches, the United Methodist 
conferences and other groups and agencies in the city and state, provides resources 
for events on and off campus related to various campus ministry concerns and actively 
participates in the work of the United Methodist conferences to which the college relates. 


The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government to sponsor 
programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major activity is the 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 in- 
terest in current issues, to explore historical events, and to present differing perspec- 
tives on controversial subjects. Faculty members, local authorities and national experts 
are invited to present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cultural, scientific, political, 
religious and historical topics. 

In addition to the Forum Series, the Public Events Committee sponsors special events 
throughout the academic year. It provides funds to student organizations and academ- 
ic departments interested in organizing programs open to the entire campus. These 
include films, guest speakers, and music recitals. 

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


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

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




The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and soccer, 
rhe women's program includes basketball, tennis, soccer and cross country. 

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
\thletic Association, of which Millsaps College is a member. 

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


The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in basket- 
sail, volleyball, softball, tennis, and soccer. The program for women includes touch foot- 
Dall, volleyball, tennis, basketball, softball, and soccer. 


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

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

Through Stylus, the college literary magazine, students interested in creative writ- 
ng are given an opportunity to see their work in print. The publication comes out twice 
3ach year and contains the best poetry, short stories and essays submitted by Millsaps 


rhe Millsaps Singers 

Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps in public perfor- 
nances, campus programs and annual tours throughout the state and other areas of 
he 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 
"las sung with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra three times, the Jackson Symphony 
Tiany times, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra and the New Orleans Philharmonic. Mem- 
Dership earns two semester hours of activity credit for the year's work. 

The 1985-86 concert season included the Millsaps Singers Fiftieth Anniversary Con- 
:ert. A choral work by Samuel Jones, a graduate of the Millsaps music department, 
/vas commissioned and premiered during this concert. 

rhe Troubadours 

Auditions are held each fall for membership in the Troubadours, a show choir of 
16 students selected from the Singers. The Troubadours represent the college at numer- 
ous campus, high school, and cultural functions throughout the region. 

rhe Millsaps Players 

The Millsaps Players, now in their seventh decade, produce four full-length plays 
each year. In addition, they present several one-act plays directed by senior theatre 
Tiajors. Casting for all plays is done by audition, open to all students. Participation in 
Players productions, either onstage or backstage, earns credit toward membership in 
Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatics fraternity. Among the major productions 
staged in recent years are Candida. Damn Yankees, The Merchant of Venice. Nude 
with Violin, The Winslow Boy. Equus. A Midsummer Night's Dream. Camino Real. West 
Side Story, The Lion in Winter. Sweet Bird of Youth. Hedda Gabler. She Stoops to Con- 
quer. Sunday in New York. Conduct Unbecoming and Summer and Smoke.

sociation fees according to college policies; 2) granting or revoking charters to student 
organizations; 3) formulating rules of social and dormitory conduct; 4) supervising stu- 
dent elections; and 5) carrying out traditional class responsibilities.

dent; one administrative staff member appointed by the president; five student mem-

semester of the junior year). 

9. 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 En- 
glish 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 ex- 
empted from this examination. Students may also demonstrate the required proficiency 
in Liberal Studies 100. 

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 
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 
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. 

10. Majors: 

In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, the student must major 
in one of the following areas: accounting, art, business administration, biology, chemis- 
try, church music, classics, computer studies, economics, education, English, French, 
geology, German, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physics, political science, 
psychology, religion, sociology, Spanish, or theatre. For students pursuing the B.L.S. 
degree an interdisciplinary major is also possible with the consent of the appropriate 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate depart- 
ment of instruction. Students may be permitted to major in a subject only after careful 
consideration and with the consent of the chairman of the department. 

A major for each student must be approved no later than the beginning of the junior 
year and the proper forms submitted to the Office of Records. All work to be applied 
toward the major must be approved in advance by the department chairman or the 
student's major professor. 

A student may have more than one major by completing the requirements in the 
departments involved. 


11. Minors: 

While there is no requirement that students complete a minor as a part of their degree, 
they may elect a minor in those departments which offer one. 

Ordinarily a student must have a minimum of 12 hours in a department beyond 
what is used to meet degree requirements in order to qualify for a minor. A minimum 
of eight hours toward the minor must be taken at Millsaps. Specific requirements for 
a particular minor can be found under the appropriate department of instruction. 

12. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory compre- 
hensive 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 mem- 
bers of the department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a com- 
mittee composed of members of the department, and, if desired by the department, 
one or more members of the faculty from other departments or other qualified persons. 

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

The time of the comprehensive examination is given in the College calendar. Com- 
prehensive examinations will not be given at any other time 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. Additional examinations may 
be taken at the discretion of the chairman of the student's major department with the 
consent of the dean of the college. 

13. Quality Index Required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A., B.S., B.B.A., B.L.S., and 
B.S. Ed. degrees; 248 for the B.M. degree. An overall quality point index of 2.00 is re- 
quired 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 the 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. (See Section Grades, Honors, Class 

14. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written appli- 
cation for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of graduation. This date 
will apply 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. 

15. Requirements for a Second Degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must have 30 
additional 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. 

16. 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 sopho- 
more year. Those freshmen who, by virtue of previous study, plan to satisfy the lan- 
guage 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 cata- 
logs of the schools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirements. The fol- 
lowing courses are required by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 131-132 8 hours Mathematics 115-116 8 hours 

Chemistry 121-122, 123-124. 8 hours Physics 111-112 or 131-132 in addition to 
Chemistry 231-232, 233-234.10 hours 151-152 8-10 hours 

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory Com- 
mittee (Al Berry, Robert Kahn, Robert Nevins, Susan Howell, and Edmond Venator) in 
designing a program that will fit particular needs, background and interest. 

Millsaps College and the majority of medical and dental schools strongly recom- 
mend that the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of interest. This cata- 
log should be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree requirements. Millsaps 
and most medical and dental schools also strongly recommend that the student de- 
velop a sound background in the humanities and social sciences. 

Some medical and dental schools will not accept credit in laboratory science courses 
obtained by C.L.E.P. or advanced placement tests. Students planning to obtain such 
credit should first consult the medical or dental schools in which they have an interest 
to be certain that the school will accept such credit. 

Students should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or dental school 
catalog are minimal but that they should obtain maximum preparation. In general, the 
student who is weak in some science, as shown by performance in introductory college 
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 
professional training. The following courses are recommended as electives by many 
medical and dental schools. 

Biology 251, 301, 315, 381, 383, 391 

Chemistry 251-253, 264-266, 363-365, 364-366 


Economics and Business Administration 

Foreign Language (reading knowledge) 


Mathematics 223-224 or 225-226 


Physics 301 , 306, 31 1 -31 2, 31 5, 31 6 

Psychology 303, 307 


The Heritage Program gives the student a more flexible schedule and time to take 
additional courses of interest and need. 


There is no required program of studies for persons planning to enter one of the 
ministries of the Church. Undergraduate pre-seminary work at Millsaps should include 
significant work in the study of religion and philosophy and in the behavioral sciences. 
A major may be chosen from several fields, including literature, philosophy, psycholo- 
gy, religion, and sociology. Pre-ministerial students are urged to consult with the pre- 
ministerial adviser, the chairman of the Department of Religion, early in their freshman 

Given the special challenges of the practice of ministry, students should plan to 
undertake professional education in a theological seminary. The best basis for such 
professional education is an undergraduate education with breadth in liberal arts studies. 



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 advisor, John Quincy 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 So- 
cial Psychology. Internships can provide valuable practical experience with community 
social welfare agencies. Students are urged to consult with their faculty advisers to plan 
a schedule. 


A student may qualify for teacher certification at Millsaps College in a variety of 
ways. Millsaps offers Teacher Education Programs which lead to certification at the 
elementary school level (K-8), the secondary school level (7-12), and in special areas 
(K-12). A student may pursue the Bachelor of Science in Education degree (B.S.Ed.) 
and qualify for teacher certification in Elementary Education, Health and Physical Edu- 
cation, Secondary Education in Science, Math, or Computer Studies, or Gifted Educa- 
tion. A student may pursue any other degree offered by the College and qualify for 
teacher certification for the secondary school level in Bible, English, Foreign Language, 
Math, Psychology, Science, Social Studies, or for the special areas Music or Art. 

The Teacher Education Programs at Millsaps College qualify the student for the 
Class A Elementary Certificate, the Class A Secondary Certificate or the Special Area 
Certificate as required by the Office of Teacher Certification and the Mississippi State 
Board of Education. 

Prior to being admitted to any Teacher Education Program at Millsaps College a 
student shall have completed a minimum of 44 hours of the core curriculum, achieved 
a minimum grade point average of 2.50, taken the entrance competency examination 
administered by the Department of Education, received the written recommendation 
of two faculty members outside the Department of Education, and completed all appli- 
cation procedures with the Chairman of the Department of Education. For specific course 
requirements for each of the Programs for Teacher Certification please contact the Char- 
iman of the Department of Education. 

Millsaps College also offers a post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program 
for those persons who hold the Bachelor's Degree and seek only teacher certification. 
For further information please contact the Office of Adult Learning or the Department 
of Education. 




3-2 Master's Program in Business Administration: The School of Management 
at Millsaps College offers a program permitting an undergraduate at Millsaps to pursue 
any non-B.B.A. degree concurrent with the M.B.A. degree. The student would com- 
plete substantially all Millsaps core and major requirements in three years and apply 
to the M.B.A. program in the junior year. An acceptable score on the Graduate Manage- 
ment Admission Test is required for admission. The baccalaureate degree would be 
awarded after the degree requirements are satisfied at that level, normally after the fourth 
year, and the masters degree after the fifth year. Twenty-six hours of graduate work 
may be applied towards the undergraduate degree in this program. Details of the pro- 
gram may be obtained from the Assistant Dean of the School of Management. 


This program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student interested in en- 
gineering, applied science, management and business administration. With this cooper- 
ative program the student can combine the advantages of a liberal education at Millsaps 
with the specialized programs of a major university. The Arthur C. Miller Pre-engineering 
Scholarship Fund provides a scholarship based on financial need and academic progress 
for a student expressing an interest in engineering. 

3-2 B.S. Programs: At present we have arrangements with five universities - 
Auburn, Columbia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Washington Universities— by which 
a student may attend Millsaps for three years accumulating a minimum of 93 hours and 
then continue work at any of the schools listed above. The student then transfers a maxi- 
mum of 31 hours back for a bachelor's degree from Millsaps and at the end of the fifth 
year recieves another bachelor's degree from the university. 

4-2 B.S. and M.S. Programs: The Columbia University Combined Plan also has 
4-2 programs in which a student attends Millsaps for four years completing degree re- 
quirements and then spends two more years at Columbia to obtain a B.S. or M.S. degree 
from the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Science. 

3-3 B.S.-M.S. and B.S.-M.B.A. Programs: Washington University also has a Com- 
bined Degree Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps as in the 
3-2 program, but then spends three years at Washington University earning both the 
B.S. and M.S. from the School of Engineering and Applied Science or both the B.S. 
from the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the M.B.A. from the Gradu- 
ate School of Business Administration. 

A wide variety of programs are offered by the five participating universities, includ- 
ing financial aid for qualified students. For detailed descriptions of programs and finan- 
cial aid the interested student is urged to consult with the Pre-engineering Advisor, Robert 
McAdory. To be admitted to the programs listed below the student must fulfill certain 
minimum course requirements at Millsaps. For many programs, particularly those in 
engineering and applied science, the mathematics requirements are strict. To keep the 
3-2 or 4-2 option viable, a student should plan to take calculus at the earliest possible 
time at Millsaps. 

The Dual Degree Program at Auburn University includes bachelor of engineering 
degrees in aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, materials and mechanical 
engineering. It is also possible to obtain a B.S. in agricultural engineering. 

The Combined Plan Program at Columbia University offers B.S. and M.S. degrees 
in civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, mining, nuclear, biological, chemical, metal- 
lurgical and mineral engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineer- 
ing mechanics, applied mathematics (B.S. only), applied physics, materials science, 
operations research, solid state science (M.S. only), chemical metallurgy, applied chemis- 
try and materials science. 

The Dual Degree Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology offers degrees 
in aerospace, ceramic, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, nuclear, and 
textile engineering. Other programs include engineering science and mechanics, tex- 
tile chemistry, textiles, health physics, economics, management, management science, 
applied biology, applied mathematics, applied physics, applied psychology, chemis- 
try, information and computer science, and physics. 


Vanderbilt University offers bachelor of engineering degrees in chemical, civil, elec- 
trical and mechanical engineering. 

Washington University offers B.S. and M.S. programs in chemical, civil, electrical 
and mechanical engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering 
and public policy, systems science and engineering, and business administration (M.B.A.) 


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, liter- 
ature, and other subjects which ensure a liberal arts experience for pre-medical tech- 
nology students. 

Millsaps College maintains a formal affiliation with several schools of medical tech- 
nology 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 Ameri- 
can Medical Association, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, the American 
College of Surgeons, the American Hospital Association, and other authoritative medi- 
cal groups. 

The medical technology student is expected to spend the first three years at Mill- 
saps 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. 

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 

Medical technology students are encouraged to secure the B.S. or B.A. degree 
before entering an approved school of medical technology. 


A Military Science program is offered on the campus of Jackson State University 
under a cross-enrollment agreement between Millsaps College, Jackson State Univer- 
sity, and the U.S. Army. Students enrolled at Millsaps are eligible to enroll and attend 
Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTO) classes on the campus of Jackson State Univer- 
sity. Credits earned in ROTC will be entered onto the student's transcript but will not 
be counted towards Millsaps graduation requirements. 

ROTC provides male and female students an opportunity to earn a commission 
as a Second Lieutenant (2LT) in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Reserves, or the Army 
National Guard, concurrent with the pursuit of an academic degree. The objectives of 
the program are: 

(1) To provide an understanding of how the U.S. Army, U.S. Army Reserves, and Army 
National Guard fit into our national defense structure. 

(2) To develop the leadership and managerial potential of students needed to facilitate 
their future performance as officers. 

(3) To develop student abilities to think creatively and to speak and to write effectively. 

(4) To encourage the development of mental and moral standards that are essential 
to military service. 

The program of instruction includes developing self-discipline, physical stamina and 
other qualities necessary for leadership. 

The ROTC Program is divided into a basic course of instruction (freshman and sopho- 
more classes) and an advanced course of instruction (junior and senior classes). In ad- 
dition to the course of instruction, students are required to attend a leadership laboratory 
in conjunction with all ROTC courses. 

There is no charge for enrolling in the ROTC program; however, cadets must be 
full-time undergraduate students (12 semester hours or more) or full-time graduate stu- 
dents (9 semester hours or more) before enrollment in ROTC. Books, equipment, and 
uniforms are free of charge to the students. Three- and two-year ROTC scholarships 
are also awarded on a competitive basis.

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 and the fall of their senior year, honors students carry out 
a research project of their choice under the direction of a professor from their major 
department. The project culminates in an honors thesis, which is presented before a 
panel of faculty members. In the spring of the senior year, students participate in an 
interdisciplinary colloquium which intensively examines a topic of broad interest. Stu- 
dents successfully completing all phases of the Honors Program receive the designa- 
tion "with honors" in their major subject at graduation. Students interested in participating 
in the Honors Program should consult with the director of the Honors Program 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 Labora- 
tory, Oak Ridge, TN. 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 arrangennent 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 govern- 
mental departments and other national and international agencies that are located in 
Washington, thus acquainting the students with possible careers in public service and 
imparting a knowledge of government in action. 

Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity from the par- 
ticipating colleges will spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Ad- 
ministration of The American University in Washington. They earn 16 hours of credit 
toward graduation in their home colleges. Eight hours are earned in a Conference Semi- 
nar, 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 utilizing 
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 
office. 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, NJ, enables Millsaps po- 
litical science majors to spend a semester making a firsthand study of the work of the 
United Nations. Participants may earn 15 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 regu- 
lar 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 Universi- 
ty, and other outstanding schools. Students live in a residential hotel in the heart of Lon- 
don. Provision is made for an optional pre-fall or post-spring tour of the continent at 
a modest cost. 

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

British Studies at Oxford 

Millsaps College in cooperation with seven other colleges in the Southern College 
and University Union sponsors a six-week intensive summer program at Oxford University 
in England. It enables students to study a particular period of British history in a thoroughly 
integrated way and in a milieu which affords an incomparable opportunity to benefit 
from the experience. Up to six hours of credit may be earned through this program. 
Limited financial aid is available. 

International Studies in London 

A six-week summer program based in London and focusing on challenges of the 
multinational economy was recently instituted under the auspices of the Southern Col- 


lege and University Union. It provides an opportunity to study in an integrated way the 
social, economic, and political facets of contennporary international problems while ob- 
serving firsthand the operations of a major financial center. Up to six hours of credit 
may be earned through this program. Limited financial aid is available. 

Other 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 the 
Institute of European Studies. Students with a special interest in classics should con- 
sider the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome and the College Year in 
Athens Program, both of which offer semester programs in the classical languages com- 
bined with archeological site and museum study during the regular academic year. The 
American Academy in Rome and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens 
offer summer programs in classical art and archeology. Other study abroad programs 
are available in most countries of Western Europe as well as in Latin America. Students 
interested in receiving college credit for such study may receive information concern- 
ing these programs from the chairman of the appropriate department or from the dean 
of the college. 

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, per- 
forming 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. 

Pubiic Administration Internship 

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

Real Estate Institute 

The Real Estate Institute provides credit and non-credit courses to serve the real 
estate industry in the State of Mississippi. This program is administered by the School 
of Management and course offerings are described in that section of the catalog. 

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 per- 
sonnel 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 (S.B.A.), an agency 
of the federal government. 



The Adult Degree Program was established in 1982 to meet the needs of adults 
24 years of age and older who, because of work or family responsibilities, cannot at- 
tend college in the traditional way. Students admitted to the Adult Degree Program are 
candidates for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree. 

This program features individualized academic advising, a required introductory 
seminar for adults returning to college, evaluation of previous college work, credit for 
prior learning, and an opportunity for independent directed study. Students in the Adult 
Degree Program may elect to major in one of the traditional disciplines or they may 
choose to design an interdisciplinary major. 

In addition to its academic programs, Millsaps provides a variety of special serv- 
ices for adult students. These include child care, career planning and placement as- 
sistance, financial aid, information sessions, and newsletters. 

For further information about the Adult Degree Program, see the Guidelines and 
Procedures Handbook. 


The Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program is designed for the student 
who holds the bachelor's degree and seeks only teacher certification. The program fea- 
tures an intensive summer program, evening classes, the opportunity for independent 
directed study, and academic advising regarding the Mississippi State Department of 
Education's "Alternate Route" for Teacher Certification. For further information regard- 
ing the PBTC program please contact the Office of Adult Learning or the Department 
of Education. 


Master of Business Administration 

The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree is offered in both daytime 
and evening classes. The Millsaps M.B.A, program is particularly suited for those stu- 
dents with a liberal arts background. 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 founda- 
tion courses may be taken at the undergraduate level: Accounting 281-282; Business 
Administration 220, 275, 321 , 333, 334, 362; Economics 201 -202; and Computer 1 00. 

For further information about the MBA Program, see the Graduate Catalog. 


Administration of the Curriculum 


The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written 
examination. The examination is approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 
"A" represents superior work. 
"B" represents above the average achievement. 
"C" 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 grade. 
"E" represents a condition and is changed to a "D" if the grade in the other semester 

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

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

above are passing marks and "F" represents failure. 
"WP" indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course 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 G.P.A.). 
"NC" represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for hourly credit (not computed 

in G.P.A.). 

Quality Points 

The completion of any academic course with a D shall entitle a student to one qual- 
ity 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 deter- 
mined 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. 

Class Standing 

The following number of hours and quality points is required: 

24 quality points 

72 quality points 

144 quality points 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 

For junior rating 52 hours; 

For senior rating 90 hours; 

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

Student Status 

Degree-seeking students taking 12 or more academic hours will be classified as 
full-time students. Students taking fewer 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 part-time students. 

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 stu- 
dents observe the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency 
as regular students. 

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 stu- 
dents to take courses in areas they might not otherwise select. Credit/no credit grading 
requires full participation 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 requirement and cannot be used to fulfill core requirements or major 


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 

Repeat Courses 

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 cumulative quality 
point average. However, all grades reported for the course remain a part of the perma- 
nent record. 

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 comprehen- 
sive examination shall be graduated Summa Cum Laude. 

To be eligible for graduation Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum 
Laude, a student must have passed at least 60 academic semester hours in Millsaps 
College. Distinction or special distinction may be refused a student who, in the judg- 
ment 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 students will be considered eligible 
only if they have 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 overall 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. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program extends over three semesters. A student admitted to the pro- 
gram will in the second semester of the junior year enroll in a directed study entitled 
Honors Research I. Work begun at that time will ordinarily be completed in the fall 
semester of the senior year when the student will be enrolled in Honors Research II. 
A letter grade will be given for each of these courses. The two semesters of research 
are intended to culminate in an honors paper presented to the Honors Council and 
defended before an examining board. 

The last semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors Colloquium designed 
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 mutu- 
al interest to all disciplines. The Honors Colloquium is required of all students in the 
Honors Program. 

A candidate who completes the colloquium satisfactorily, who presents and de- 
fends the honors paper satisfactorily, who has a 3.0 overall 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 overall quality point index, who has a 4.0 index in honors work and who has present- 
ed a superior honors paper will be graduated with High Honors. 

A student may voluntarily withdraw candidacy for honors at any time. Students en- 
rolled 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 
upon the recommendation of the honors advisor and with the approval of the Honors 


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 of 3.2 for that semester. 

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

2. Conduct: 

The student must be, in the judgment of the dean, a good citizen of the college 

Hours Permitted 

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

Students may not take more than 1 7 semester hours of academic work unless they 
have a quality index of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 19 
semester hours without a quality point index of 3.00 on the last semester and permis- 
sion 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, unless a graduating senior. 


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 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 W.P. (withdrawn passing) or W.F. (withdrawn failing). Courses 
dropped after this time are recorded as F. Students who drop a course without securing 
the required approvals will receive 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 W.P. (withdrawn passing) or W.F. (withdrawn failing) in each course. A 
student who withdraws without permission receives a grade of F in each course. 

Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or any other 
circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for which (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 
until all accounts are settled in the Business Office. 

Academic Suspension 

For full-time students entering the college as freshmen, it is necessary to pass in 
the first semester six hours of academic work in order to remain in college. Thereafter 
a full-time student must pass nine hours of academic work to be eligible to continue 
in college. Furthermore, the maximum number of semesters a student may be on aca- 
demic probation without suspension is two. 


Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic failure may peti- 
tion 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. 

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 ap- 
ply 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 12 academic hours credit. A student on academic probation for 
two semesters is asked not to re-enroll at Millsaps College. 

Unsatisfactory Academic Progress 

A part-time student who makes a quality index of less than 1.5 in any semester 
will be notified that he or she is making unsatisfactory academic progress. To be re- 
moved from that classification the student must make a 2.0 quality index during a regu- 
lar semester or summer session. 

Class Attendance 

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 
faculty 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 - after three successive absences for reasons unknown to the in- 
structor, or when in danger of failing the course. 

This reporting of absences 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 in 
writing to each class at the beginning of the semester. This may extend to dismissal 
from the course with a grade of "F" for reasons solely of absence. 

Absences are excusable only by the individual faculty member, but an excused 
absence does not excuse the student from being responsible for the course work. Ex- 
planation 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 explana- 
tions are not in themselves excuses. This is particularly important in the case of absences 
involving missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and similar sched- 
uled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from atten- 
dance on the two days preceding and the two days following vacation periods without 
the express permission 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. 

Permission to make up an examination or alter the time for an examination may 
be granted only through the vice president and dean of the college. Any special exami- 
nation, if granted, must be held no later than the sixth week of the next regular semester. 
A $10 fee will be charged for such an examination, except at the discretion of the vice 
president and dean of the college in cases of serious illness at the time of the examination. 

A student who has been excluded from a course by recommendation of the in- 
structor may petition the vice president and dean of the college within one week for 
the privilege of a reinstatement examination. This examination, to be prepared and ad- 
ministered by the instructor, shall cover the work of the course up to that date. A $10 


fee will be paid to the Business Office for this privilege. Re-entry shall depend upon 
the examination results. If a student does not petition for re-entry, or if the re-entry is 
denied, the grade shall be recorded as F. 


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 ensure 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 ex- 
empt from any examination in more than one term or semester. 

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

Seniors may be allowed one special examination in any subject taken and failed 
in the senior year. Permission for such examination must be secured from the dean 
or associate dean of the college. Students may request exemption from other require- 
ments by petition to the dean of the college. 

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 or her room. The use of intoxicating beverages is not a part of, nor 
does It contribute to, the total educational emphasis of Millsaps College. The Board of 
Trustees does not approve the use of alcoholic beverages on the Millsaps Campus and 
does not permit the use of any alcoholic beverages in any public area on the campus. 
A student may consume alcoholic beverages only within the privacy of his or her room 
and only in accordance with the state law which prohibits the drinking of beer for those 
under 18 years of age and any other alcoholic beverage for those under 21 years of 
age. Regardless of age and state law requirements, no student is allowed to consume 
alcoholic beverages outside of the confines of a student's room. 

Fraternity and sorority facilities are subject to all applicable state laws and city or- 
dinances. Moreover, in the absence of an expressly granted exception, the display, 
serving, consumption, or any other use of alcoholic beverages is prohibited on the 
porches, yards, grounds and other external structures of any such facility. 

The Board of Trustees emphasizes that it does not approve of the use of alcoholic 
beverages on the Millsaps College premises. Consumption of alcoholic beverages in 
fraternity and sorority facilities or in a student's room must never result in irresponsible 
behavior or contribute to an environment not conducive to the realization of the primary 
goals and aims of Millsaps College. 

The use, possession or distribution of narcotics or dangerous drugs such as mariju- 
ana, except as expressly allowed by law, is not permitted. Gambling is not permitted 
on campus. 

Disciplinary Regulations 

Students guilty of serious infractions of college regulations may be placed on so- 
cial probation, disciplinary probation, suspension or expulsion at the discretion of the 
Judicial Council, the dean of student affairs or the president of the college dependent 
upon the original jurisdiction. Cases involving a recommendation of suspension or ex- 
pulsion are automatically appealable to the president of the college. 

Social Probation 

Social probation is a warning to a student or to a campus organization regarding 
acceptable standards of conduct. Its primary purpose is to provide a period of time 
for the student or campus organization to demonstrate responsible conduct by college 

Disciplinary Probation 

Disciplinary probation is the most serious penalty, short of suspension and expul- 
sion, that can be incurred by a student. During a period of disciplinary probation any 
further infraction of college regulations will render the student liable to suspension. 


Disciplinary Suspension and Disciplinary Expulsion 

Suspension is a decision to temporarily separate a student from the college. 
Expulsion is a decision to permanently separate a student from the college. 

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

Requirements for Major: A student may elect a major in classical studies with 
18-24 semester hours in one classical language, 6 semester hours in the other classical 
language, and 12 semester hours in classical civilization courses. The student must earn 
a grade of C or better in all courses counted toward the major. Either Greek or Latin

the following courses may, with the approval of the chairman, substitute for one 3-hour 
course in classical civilization: Philosophy 301 , Art 201 , English 203, Political Science 301 .

must take 18 hours above the 101-102 level for teacher certification. Students who in- 
tend to go to graduate school in classics should take additional language courses in 
both Greek and Latin. Prospective majors should also consider off-campus programs 
in classics. For further information see section Special Programs.

of the fourth century to its struggle against and absorption into the world-empire of

School of Management 

The Chair of Management 

The Dan White Chair of Economics 

Professors: JERRY D. WHITT, Ph.D., Dean 




SUE Y. WHITT, Ph.D., C.P.A. 
Associate Professors: CARL A. BROOKING, Ph.D. 




Assistant Professors: ANDREW J. ECONOMOPOULOS, Ph.D. 




Instructors: DAVID H. CULPEPPER, M.B.A., C.P.A. 



Objective of the School of Management. The objective of the School of Manage- 
ment is to provide managerial and professional leadership to the larger society by educat- 
ing future leaders in business and public administration and in the accounting profession, 
by providing consulting and other services to the community, and by expanding the 
body of knowledge in the field of management. With respect to the educational mis- 
sion, our goals are to develop a general management outlook toward organizations and 
the changing environment they face; to foster the ability to organize information for analy- 
sis as the basis for making decisions; to instill standards of professional behavior which 
are consistent with the legitimate expectations of society; and to provide technical ex- 
pertise required for entry-level positions and leadership attributes necessary to attain 
positions in general management. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). Accounting and business adminis- 
tration majors must complete additional requirements for the Bachelor of Business Ad- 
ministration 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 busi- 
ness administration are in addition to courses which may be used to satisfy the mini- 
mum 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 

At least 54 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 
completed at least 52 semester hours. 

Students pursuing the B.B.A. degree are encouraged to add depth in a non-business 
area that a minor can provide. Minors which would be of particular value to students 
in the School of Management are available in computer studies, modern languages, 
English, chemistry, political science, psychology, and biology. 

Transfer Credit: Transfer students should normally expect to satisfy the statistics 
requirement (Administration 275) at Millsaps. The typical first six hours of accounting 
principles will normally satisfy the department's 281-282 requirement. The typical six 
hours of sophomore economics will normally satisfy the Economics 201-202 require- 
ment. Transfer students will be required to satisfactorily complete at least 18 hours of 
courses offered 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 instances 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. 

Requirements for major in Accounting: The program of study is adequate prepa- 
ration for the C.P.A. and CM. A. examinations. Accounting majors must complete the 
requirements for a B.B.A. degree in addition to requirements for the major. Account- 
ing 281-282 and Economics 201 -202 should not be taken before the sophomore year.

and Business Administration 221-222 and 399 should be taken in the senior year. 

Requirements for major in Business Administration: The requirements for the 
business administration major, in addition to the general requirements for the B.B.A. 
degree, are very flexible and afford students the opportunity to take advanced elec- 
tives which will provide a foundation to enter several professional fields. 

Administration majors should take Accounting 281-282, Economics 201-202, Com- 
puter 100 or equivalent, and Business Administration 220 and 275 before their junior
