History of the College
Millsaps College was founded in 1 890 by the Methodist Church as a "Christian college
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
outskirts 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 1 908, began
a tradition of the College's influence outside the state.
By the time of its centennial celebration in 1990, enrollment at Millsaps had more than
doubled with approximately one-half of the students coming from out of state. The
quality of the liberal arts program was nationally recognized with the award of a Phi Beta
Kappa chapter in 1988. A graduate program in business administration, begun in 1979,
received national accreditation along with the undergraduate business program in 1 990.
Millsaps' first president, William Belton Murrah, served until 1910. Other presidents
were David Carlisle Hull ( 1 9 1 0- 1 9 1 2), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins (1912-1 923), Dr.
David Martin Key ( 1 923- 1 938), Dr. Marion Lofton Smith ( 1 938- 1 952), Dr. Homer Ellis
Finger, Jr. (1952-1964), 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.
Students 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
ability to do academic work satisfactory to the College and beneficial to the student.
Millsaps' 1 ,400-member student body represents about 35 states and several foreign
countries. Students come from 25 religious denominations. All are urged to take
advantage of the educational and cultural offerings of Mississippi's capital city of
Research facilities available to students include 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 Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Missis-
sippi, New Stage Theatre, Mississippi Opera Association, and musical, dramatic, and
sporting events held at the City Auditorium and the Mississippi Coliseum.
Millsaps is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools to award the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business
Administration, Bachelor of Liberal Studies, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science,
and Master of Business Administration. The College is approved by the American
Association of University Women and the University Senate of the United Methodist
Church. The Else School of Management is accredited at both the undergraduate and
graduate level by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. The
Department of Chemistry is accredited by the American Chemical Society and the
Department of Education is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of
The Millsaps-Wilson Library
The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 260,000 volumes and 800 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
listening facilities. Special collections include the Lehman Engel Collection of books
and recordings; the Mississippi Methodist Archives; the Kellogg Collection of juvenile
books and curriculum materials; the Paul Ramsey collection in Applied Ethics; the
Eudora Welty collection; U.S. Government Documents; the Millsaps Archives; and a
rare book collection. Online computer searches and CD-ROM indexes are among the
electronic services offered. 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 computing
resources for teaching, learning and research. From eight terminal complexes across the
campus, students have access to the fiber optic based College computer network,
supported by a cluster of Digital Equipment VAX/VMS systems located in the
Academic Complex. In addition, a large personal computer laboratory and terminal
classroom for teaching are located in SuUivan-Harrell Hall. Specialized facilities
include color graphics terminals in Olin Hall, a graphics laboratory with rise architecture
work stations and an imaging laboratory in Sullivan-Harrell Hall, and a personal
computer laboratory for graduate students in Murrah Hall.
Buildings and Grounds
The 1 00-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 Else
School of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Hall, built in 1928 and renovated in 1990,
houses the departments of Computer Studies, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, Educa-
tion, Psychology and Sociology. The Olin Hall of Science, dedicated in 1 988, houses the
departments of Biology and Chemistry.
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 modem theatre stage.
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, Computer
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.
The Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1974, has courts for basketball, tennis,
badminton and volleyball. Weight-training and physical therapy rooms are also in-
cluded in this multi-purpose facility. An outdoor swimming pool is adjacent to this

Advanced Placement and Credit by Examination
Students entering Millsaps College may earn a waiver of certain requirements or college

The Admissions Committee acts on applications for the fall semester on December 1 ,
January 15, March 1 , April 1 and on a weekly basis thereafter pending vacancies in the
class. Applications for the spring term are considered on a weekly basis.

Degree Program. Applicants for the Master of Business Administration degree should
apply directly to the director of the MBA Program.
Orientation and Advisement
Orientation into the college community is essential to a student's college success. The
importance of this process is seen through the College's commitment to the Perspectives
program. Perspectives introduces the incoming student to a variety of issues and
activities. Many are fun, some are challenging, but all are developed to inform the
students about issues they will be facing throughout their college careers and beyond.
Building relationships is an important component of the program. The Perspectives
group is led by a team of faculty and student advisors. The student leaders work with the
group on a weekly basis addressing the various issues. The faculty leader advises the
group through the orientation process but also serves as the initial academic advisor.
This relationship continues until the student selects a major field of study, at which time
a professor in that field becomes the advisor.
Since counseling is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth, a wide array of
counseling services are offered through the Counseling and Career Planning and
Placement Center. The counselor can assist students in improving academic perfor-
mance by helping them improve study skills techniques such as time management, note-
taking, problem-solving, and test-taking. Help is also available for students wishing to
engage in self-exploration and goal-setting; to discuss relationships, stress reduction, or
other personal concerns; and to obtain information on other community resources.
Referrals to professionals or treatment programs off campus will be made when
Career Planning and Placement
Career planning begins in the freshman year with an emphasis on exploring both career
fields and academic majors. Through interest testing, planning and consultation,
students can explore academic disciplines relevant to their interests and, over time,
establish realistic career directions, develop career strategies and set goals.
Frequent contact with the career counselor is encouraged to ensure continued develop-
ment and movement toward a satisfying career choice. Students are invited to utilize
14 Information for Prospective Students
resources in the career library, to participate in off-campus internships and to take
advantage of opportunities for part-time and summer employment as bases of experi-
ence. These resources are available through the Counseling and Career Planning and
Developing skills in resume writing, interviewing and job search strategies are empha-
ses for junior and senior students. Workshops on these topics are presented on a regular
schedule and students are urged to come in for private conferences. Current listings of
employment opportunities are available and on-campus interviews are scheduled with
representatives from graduate and professional schools, businesses, industries and
Student housing is an important service rendered by any college. However, Millsaps
places a great deal of emphasis on the learning process that takes place within the
residence halls. The student housing program is administered by a team of professionals
including the Associate Dean of Students, Housing Coordinator, Program Coordinator,
Resident Directors, and Resident Assistants.
Housing assignments are made by the Housing Coordinator who can be found in the
Office of Student Affairs. This person assists students in determining their living
situations by taking into account building preference, roommate choice, and several
other factors. Questions regarding the assignment process should be forwarded to the
All freshman men and women, unless they are married or live with their immediate
families in Jackson or vicinity, are required to reside on campus in college residence
halls and to dine on campus. Exceptions to this policy are unusual and must be authorized
through the Office of Student Affairs.
Residence hall rooms are designed to house two students each. Students should send the
completed housing forms and housing deposit by the designated date. Assignments are
made in the order of seniority for housing (classification, deposit, etc.). Students wishing
to room together should specify their desire to room together on their housing request.
Room preferences are honored unless the rooms are already taken by students who are
eligible for them. Single rooms are normally not available. Room rent cannot be
refunded after the semester begins.
Assignments are made in the order in which the housing deposit is received by the
Business Office according to the following priorities:
1 . Current residents requesting their same room and rising seniors who are currently
2. Current residents requesting their same residence hall and rising juniors who are
3. Current residents who are not represented in the above categories and rising
sophomores who are currently residents.
4. Current residents and returning non-resident students who make their housing
deposit before May 1 5 will be assigned a housing space in order of receipt number
without priority concerning their classification.
5. Returning students and residents who make a deposit after May 1 5 will be placed
on a waiting list. Room assignments for this category will be made beginning
August 1 after freshman and transfer students have been assigned, in order of
receipt number ot their housing deposit without priority concerning their classitl
cation. To remain in priority status for residence hall assignments, housing deposits
and request cards must be submitted to the Business OtTicc by May 15.
Current students who have become academically ineligible and who have not been
readmitted on petition by June 1 will be refunded the room deposit. These students, if
readmitted at a later date, will need to pay the room deposit and will be put on a waiting
list for room assignments.
A quiet wing option is offered for students who wish to live in an environment where
more intensive study is possible 24 hours a day.
Residence halls open at 9 a.m. on the day preceding each term and close at 1 2 noon 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 scheduled
classes and reopen at 3 p.m. on the day preceding the resumption of classes. Students are
not housed in residence halls during Thanksgiving, Christmas, or spring holidays.
Millsaps College offers a comprehensive health care program for its students. This
program is administered through the College nurse who is certified in college health
care. The nurse works with local physicians to provide health and emergency care for
students. Physicians hold clinic on campus at various times throughout the week.
Students should contact the College nurse for more information regarding the various

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 situations:
(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 directory
information: Name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field
of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and
height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards
received, the most recent previous educational institution attended by the student,
and information needed for honors and awards. Students who do not wish such
information released without their consent 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, consult
the Office of Records or the Office of Student Affairs.
Millsaps College will not release transcripts of records until all accounts are paid in full.
Should a party otherwise obligated to pay a just debt to the College fail to pay any such
debt or cost to the College, then the debt may be turned over to an agent for collection
and any such cost of collection must also be paid in full before the transcript is released.

28 Student Life
Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches, synagogues and other faith
communities of the city of Jackson and the campus ministry program coordinated
through the Campus Ministry Team. Churches provide communities of faith for
students, faculty and staff. The campus ministry program attempts to provide experi-
ences which explore the meaning of a life of faith for a college community.
To accomplish this, a varied program is offered: sponsorship of special programs on the
Millsaps Forum Series on such issues as the occult, the family, and the Skinhead
phenomenoni» a series that addresses from an intentionally Christian perspective such
issues as abortion, censorship and pornography, homosexuality and war; fellowship
experiences; Bible studies; projects in the community working with disadvantaged
populations; chapel and special services such as Advent and Maundy Thursday
Services; emphases on such issues as AIDS and Adult Children of Alcoholics; and many
others. In addition, the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity is very active and the
new Midtown Project involves hundreds of volunteers in a city wide effort to rehabilitate
this historic area of the city which has suffered greatly from drugs, violence and
deteriorating housing. All of these experiences are meant to communicate an active
understanding of the life of faith as it addresses crucial social needs.
In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsors
a group on campus. All campus ministry is strongly ecumenical. Furthermore, in
addition to the College Chaplain, the College has been fortunate to have additional part-
time and full-time persons working on campus from time to time through such programs
as the United Methodist Mission Intern Program and the Catholic VOICE program.
The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches, with The Mississippi
Conference of the United Methodist Church, and with other denominations. Further-
more, a working relationship has been established with many community projects and
agencies as vehicles for student involvement.
The Public Events Committee receives funds from the student government and the
College to sponsor programs of general interest to the campus and community. Its major
activity is the Millsaps Forum Series - a continuing slate of speakers 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
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 academic
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

Requirements for Degrees
Requirements for All Degrees
A total of 32 courses is required for the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor
of Business Administration, Bachelor of Music, and Bachelor of Liberal Studies
degrees. Of this total, at least 30 courses must be letter-graded academic credit. For
transfer purposes, one course credit is the equivalent of four semester hours credit.
Core Requirements for All Degrees
All Millsaps students must complete ten core courses sp)ecitlcally designed to develop
the general abilities of a liberally educated person.
Core 1: Introduction to Liberal Studies 1 course
Core 2: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Ancient World 1 course
Core 3: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Pre-modem World 1 course
Core 4: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Modem World 1 course
Core 5: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Contemporary World... 1 course
Core 6: Topics in Social and Behavioral Science 1 course
Core 7: Topics in Natural Science with Laboratory 1 course
Core 8: Topics in Mathematics 1 course
Core 9: Topics in Mathematics, Natural Science, or
Computer Science 1 course
Core 10: Reflections on Liberal Studies 1 course
Courses that satisfy core requirements must be selected from an approved list published
each semester with the class schedule.
All incoming students are required to complete Introduction to Liberal Studies in the
first year. Reflections on Liberal Studies must be completed during the senior year. All
other core courses should be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Transfer
students and Adult Degree Program students who cannot meet this schedule will be
helped to complete their core requirements as early in their college careers as possible.
All core courses seek to help students develop the intellectual skills of a liberal arts
education. These skills include:
Reasoning - the ability to think logically and reflectively, to analyze critically and
Communication -the ability to express one's thoughts and feelings coherently and
persuasively through written and oral communication and to work effectively in
collaboration with others.
Quantitative Thinking - the ability to understand, interpret, and use numerical and
scientific data and the technology of the modem world.
Historical Consciousness - the ability to understand the achievements, problems and
challenges of the present with perspectives gained from a study of the past.
Aesthetic Judgement - the ability to understand and appreciate creative responses to the
world, and to develop one's own modes of creative expression.
Global andMulti-Cultural Awareness - the ability to understand and appreciate a variety
of social and cultural perspectives.
Valuing and Decision-Making-the ability to understand and appreciate differing moral
viewpoints: to make carefully considered, well-reasoned decisions; and to make a
mature assessment of one's own abilities, beliefs and values.
Multi-Disciplinary Topics Courses Core 2-5
Multi-disciplinary topics courses (core 2-5) use a selected focus instead of a full survey.
They take their theme from a particular field of knowledge — fme arts, history,
literature, philosophy, or religion — but make explicit connections with other fields of
knowledge. In this way students are encouraged to view human experience as a whole
and to begin the process of making their own connections. Although a particular topic
is chosen for each topics course, the topics are placed in their appropriate historical and
global contexts and presented in such a way as to illustrate the process of historical
change. All multi-disciplinary topics courses include a substantial amount of writing,
with an emphasis on analysis and critical thinking.
Students should choose their topics courses in chronological sequence, beginning with
the ancient world in the fall of their first year and proceeding to the contemporary world
in the spring of their second year. Each topics course has either a primary or double
disciplinary focus. Students must choose courses to meet this requirement which
represent at least three different disciplirmry focuses.
The Heritage Program
Heritage is a four-course, multi-disciplinary humanities program designed for freshmen
as an alternative to the multi-disciplinary topics courses. It fulfills the requirements for
core 2-5 and fine arts.
Topics Courses Core 6-9
Topics courses in the social and behavioral sciences, natural sciences, mathematics and
computer science (core 6-9) may be multi-disciplinary, but need not be. These courses
foster general abilities such as reasoning, quantitative thinking, valuing and decision-
making. Laboratory science courses introduce students to scientific method and to a
representative body of scientific knowledge in a way that promotes an appreciation for
the impact of science upon the contemporary world.
In addition to completing the requisite core courses, students must demonstrate
proficiency in the fine arts in one of the following ways:
1 ) completing the Heritage curriculum, or
2) completing a topics course with a fine arts focus, or
3) demonstrating significant experience in creating art objects or demonstrating
a prescribed level of competence in the performing arts, or
4) compiling a written portfolio verifying significant involvement with art
For further information on options 3 and 4, students should consult with the associate
dean of the division of Arts and Letters.
Writing Assessment Portfolio
A portfolio of writing completed during the first two years will be assessed by the end
of the sophomore year to determine writing proficiency. Students will not be eligible to
enroll in Reflections on Liberal Studies until they have satisfied this requirement.
Transfer students are expected to demonstrate equivalent proficiency to the satisfaction
of the director of the Writing Program. They are advised to consult with the director as
soon after beginning their study at Millsaps as possible in order to arrange for
establishing a proficiency portfolio.
With the approval of the Core Council, transfer students may substitute courses in fine
arts, history, literature, philosophy, or religion to meet one or more of the core 2, 3, 4 or
5 requirements. All four historical periods and at least three disciplines must be
represented either by transfer credit or by course work at Millsaps in order to fulfill these
graduation requirements. There must also be evidence of a significant amount of writing.
With the approval of the Core Council, any student who completes a course in the natural
sciences, mathematics, or social and behavioral sciences which presumes the skill and
knowledge of a core course will be exempt from that particular core requirement.
Additional Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts Degree
Proficiency at the intermediate level of an ancient or modem foreign language
demonstrated by satisfactory completion of a 2000-level course or the equivalent.
Additional Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree
Students must complete Analytic Geometry and Calculus I. In addition to courses taken
to meet the core, students must complete four courses in at least three disciplines chosen
from the following list. At least two must be laboratory courses. Students may select
four courses from group I or three courses from group I and one from group II.
Astronomy any course
Biology any lab course
Chemistry any lab course
Geology any lab course
Mathematics Analytic Geometry and Calculus II or higher
Physics any lab course
Computer Studies Introduction to Computer Science or higher
Psychology Behavioral Neuroscience

Language 2-4 courses
Additional Requirements for Bachelor of Business Administration Degree
Students must complete College Algebra and Survey of Calculus or a higher level
mathematics sequence and Computer Survival before taking sophomore-level course
work in the Else School of Management.
At the sophomore level, students take:
Principles of Economics 1 course

Business Statistics and Computing I and II 1 1/2 course
Survey of Accounting 1 course
At the junior level, students take:
Introduction to Management 1 course
Operations Management with Computing 1 course
Fundamentals of Marketing 1 course
Principles of Corporate Finance 1 course
Students must fulfill the requirements for an Accounting major or a Business Admin-
Residence Requirements: To qualify for graduation from Millsaps, 8 of the last 10
course units of academic work must be done in residence as a degree-seeking student.
An exception to this rule is the pre-engineering dual-degree program in which students
may transfer back the equivalent of 8 courses.
Majors: In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, a student must major
in one of the following areas: accounting, art, business administration, biology,
chemistry, classical studies, computer studies, economics, education, English, european
studies, French, geology, 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
Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate department of
instruction. Students may major in a subject only with the consent of the department
chair. They should plan to declare a major no later than the beginning of the junior year.
All work to be applied toward the major must be approved in advance by the department
chair or the student's major professor.
A student may have more than one major by completing all of the requirements in the
While there is no requirement that students complete a minor as part of their degree, they
may elect a minor in those departments which offer one.
Ordinarily a student must have a minimum of four courses in a department beyond what
is used to meet degree requirements in order to qualify for a minor. A minimum of two
courses applied toward the minor must be taken at Millsaps. Specific requirements for
a particular minor can be found under the appropriate department of instruction.
Areas of Concentration: In addition to the major and minor, a student may have an area
of concentration within a particular discipline or among several disciplines.
Comprehensive Examinations: Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must
pass a satisfactory comprehensive examination in the major field of study. This
examinatiort is given in the senior year and is intended to cover subject matter greater
in scope than a single course or series of courses. The purpose of the comprehensive
examination is to coordinate the class work with independent reading and thinking in
such a way as to relate the knowledge acquired and give the student a general
understanding of the field which could not be acquired from individual courses.
The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part written and part
oral, the division of time between the two to be at the discretion of the members of the
department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a committee
composed of members of the department, and, if desired by the department, one or more
members of the faculty from other departments or other qualified persons.
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
requirements in their major department. They may take the examination in the spring
semester if they are within one semester of graduation. 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 published in the college calendar.
Comprehensive 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.
Grade Point Index Required: An overall grade point index of 2.00 is required for
graduation. Transfer students must have a minimum grade point index of 2.00 on their
Millsaps work. The grade point index is calculated on the total number of courses
attempted, with the exception of courses repeated for a better grade. (See Section on
Grades, Honors, Class Standing.)
Application for a Degree: Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to
submit a written application for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of
graduation. This date also applies to students who plan to complete their work in the
summer session. Forms for degree applications are available from the Office of Records.
Requirements for a Second Degree: In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps
College a student must have a minimum of 8 additional course credits beyond those
required for the first degree, and with these additional course credits must meet all of the
requirements for both the second degree and the second major.
Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental
Students interested in medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, or veteri-
nary medicine are urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory
Committee in designing a program that will fit particular needs, background, and
interest. Members of the committee have a reference listing the requirements and
admission policies of all American allopathic (M.D.) schools. Information is also
available for other medical programs, as well as nursing, occupational therapy, physical
therapy, medical technology, and related fields.
Early in the fall semester of the senior year, the student should arrange an interview with
the Pre-medical Advisory Committee, which will evaluate the student's qualifications
for medical study. This evaluation will be sent to the professional schools in which the
student is interested.
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. However, the
following courses generally fulfill the entrance requirements of medical, dental, and
Biology 1 year
General inorganic chemistry 1 year
Organic chemistry 1 year
Physics 1 year
Mathematics 1 year
Additional advanced science is often required.
Millsaps College and the majority of medical and dental schools strongly recommend
that the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of interest. It is not required that
this degree be in a science, and students are encouraged to achieve a broad background
in the humanities and social sciences, although the above listed requirements are
generally immutable. The new Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) emphasizes
the desirability of a broad reading background, and also requires writing an essay.
These requirements are further addressed in meetings of pre-medical students held each
semester. The pre-medical honorary. Alpha Epsilon Delta, also conducts meetings of
interest to students in all health-related curricula.
Admission to medical and dental programs is highly competitive. Success involves:
-grade point average (both total and science/math)
-score on the appropriate professional exam (e.g. MCAT, DAT)
-faculty and pre-med committee recommendations
-outside activities (including both campus and work experience)
-a successful interview with the professional school.
Combined research/professional programs are offered by many of these schools.
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 social and behavioral
sciences. No one major is best. Students considering a ministerial career should consult
with the chair of the department of Religion or the college chaplain as early as possible.
Given the special challenges of the practice of ministry, students should plan to
undertake professional education in a theological seminary. The best preparation for
such professional education is an undergraduate education with breadth in the liberal
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 for 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
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, preferably sociology. Self
and Society, Peoples of the World, Comparative Family Systems and Social Stratifica-
tion are essential. Other courses which are strongly recommended include Social
Problems, Theories of Personality, and Social Psychology. Internships can provide
valuable practical experience with community social welfare agencies. Students are
urged to consult with their faculty advisers to plan a schedule.
Programs for Teacher Certification
A student may prepare for teacher certification at Millsaps College in a variety of ways.
Millsaps offers Teacher Education Programs which lead to certification at the elemen-
tary school level (K-8), the secondary school level (7-12), and in special areas (K-1 2).
A student may pursue any degree offered by the College and qualify for teacher
certification provided all College major requirements are met and all teacher certifica-
tion requirements are met. The Teacher Education Programs offer certification in
Elementary Education (K-8), Secondary Education (7- 1 2) in English, foreign language,
mathematics, science, and social studies, and in the special areas (K-1 2) art, and music
education. A student may also qualify for endorsements in computer education, early
childhood, gifted education, remedial reading or special education. The Teacher
Education Programs qualify the student for provisional teacher certification as required
by the Office of Teacher Certification and the Mississippi State Board of Education.
After completing a certification program at Millsaps, the student will be prepared to pass
the provisional year evaluation and receive the standard Class A certificate.
Prior to being admitted to any Teacher Education Program at Millsaps College, a
student shall have completed the core curriculum, achieved a minimum grade point
average of 2.5, passed the Communication Skills and General Knowledge tests of the
National Teacher Examination, received the written recommendation of two faculty
members outside the Department of Education, and completed all application proce-
dures with the chairof the Department of Education. Teacher education comprehensive
examination requirements include all four components of the National Teacher Exami-
nation. (Students are requested to have copies of their NTE scores sent directly to the
Mississippi State Department of Education.) To receive the College's recommendation
for teacher certification, the student must maintain the 2.5 G.P. A., pass the Professional
Knowledge and Specialty Area tests of the National Teacher Examination no later than
the fall semester of the senior year, and complete the Portfolio for Comprehensive
Examination with the Department of Education as appropriate.
3-2 Master's Program in Business Administration: The Else 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 complete
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 Management
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 master's degree after the fifth year. Twenty-seven hours of graduate work may
be applied toward the undergraduate degree in this program. Details of the program may
be obtained from the Assistant Dean of the Else School of Management.
Engineering and Applied Science
This program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student interested in
engineering, applied science, management and business administration. With this
cooperative 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: Millsaps has agreements with five universities - Auburn, Columbia,
Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Washington universities - by which a student may attend
Millsaps for three years and then continue work at any of the schools listed above. The
student then transfers a maximum of eight course credits back for a bachelor's degree
from Millsaps and at the end of the fifth year receives another bachelor's degree from
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
requirements 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.S7M.S. and B.SVM.B.A. Programs: Washington University also has a com-
bined Degree Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps and 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 Graduate School of Business
A wide variety of programs are offered by the five participating universities, including
financial aid for qualified students. For detailed descriptions of programs and financial
aid, the interested student is urged to consult with the pre-engineering advisor. 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.
For students interested in engineering, the general expectation of the cooperating
engineering scjiools is that most, if not all, of the science, mathematics and humanities
requirements for the engineering degree be taken at Millsaps. Students interested in a
particular program, however, should consult the catalog of the appropriate university
and the Millsaps pre-engineering advisor. Some programs have particular requirements,
such as the Auburn University electrical engineering requirement of an ethics course,
which students might wish to fulfill at Millsaps.
The Dual Degree Program at Auburn University includes bachelor of engineering
degrees in aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, material 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
chemistry 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, textile
chemistry, textiles, health physics, economics, management, management science,
applied biology, applied mathematics, applied physics, applied psychology, chemistry,
information and computer science, and physics.
Vanderbilt University offers bachelor of engineering degrees in chemical, civil,
electrical 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.).
A Military Science program is offered on the campus of Jackson State University under
a cross-enrollment agreement between Millsaps College, Jackson State University, and
the U.S. Army. Students enrolled at Millsaps are eligible to enroll and attend Reserve
Officer Training Corps (ROTC) classes on the campus of Jackson State University.
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 Reserve, 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 Reserve, and Army
National Guard fit into our national defense structure.
(2) To develop the leadership and managerial potential ol" students needed to
facilitate their future performance as officers.
(3) To develop student abilities to think creatively and to speak and to write
(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 in the first two years and
an advanced course of instruction in the final two years. In addition to the course of
instruction, students are required to attend a leadership lab<uatory.
There is no charge for enrolling in the ROTC Program; however, cadets must be
admitted as full-time students before enrollment in ROTC. Books, equipment, and
uniforms are free of charge to the students. Three-year and two-year ROTC scholarships
are available and awarded on a competitive basis.

Ford Fellows Program
The Ford Fellows Program provides an opportunity for upperclass students with an
interest in college teaching to work closely with a faculty member in their area of
academic interest. Primary teaching under faculty supervision is encouraged as well as
research and scholarship. Students must submit an application jointly with the faculty
member with whom they will be working to the program director early in the spring
semester. Approximately twelve students are selected each year for participation in this
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 a professor's direction. The project's final product,
consisting wholly or partially of a written thesis, 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. Students successfully
completing all phases of the Honors Program receive the designation "with honors" in
their field of honors work at graduation. Students interested in participating in the
Honors Program should consult with the program director in the fall of their junior year.
Semester Abroad in Central Europe
Through the auspices of the Associated Colleges of the South, Millsaps administers a
fall semester abroad program in Central Europe. This program is under the direction of
an American professor in residence. The students enroll in four courses on Central
European political, economic, cultural and environmental issues. All courses are taught
in English by professors from the European universities. The entire study group travels
together and studies in major universities in Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
The same four subjects are studied at each university, thereby providing the students
with an excellent comparative understanding of central European affairs. This program
is well suited to the Millsaps European Studies major and minor, but is open to students
from all disciplines.
Summer Program in London and Munich
The Else School of Management offers a six-week summer program in London,
England, and Munich, Germany, which studies the global dimension of the business
world. The program has focused its study on the new Europe in recent years, and a variety
of field trips and guest speakers are integrated into the courses. Students have an
opportunity to learn about German language and business culture in the second half of
British Studies at Oxford
Millsaps College, through membership in the Associated Colleges of the South,
participates in 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.
Other Study Abroad Programs
Millsaps College has cooperative agreements with the Institute of European Studies and
the Institute of East Asian Studies, which maintain programs in seven different
countries. Students with a special interest in classics should consider 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 combined with archaeological
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 archaeology. 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 can receive information concerning these
programs from the chair of the appropriate department or from the Coordinator for Study
The Washington Semester
The Washington Semester is a joint arrangement between The American University.
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 acquaint-
ing 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 participat-
ing colleges spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Administration
of the American University in Washington. They earn four courses of credit toward
graduation. Two course credits are earned in a Conference Seminar, in which high-
ranking leaders of politics and government meet with students. One course credit is
earned in a research course, which entails the writing of a paper by utilizing the sources
available only at the nation's capital. An additional course credit is earned in an
Internship, in which the student is placed in a government or public interest organization
Constitutional Liberties Internship
Students who have completed the two courses in constitutional law work as an aide in
a law firm or government agency focusing on constitutional issues.
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
School of Management Intern Programs
Students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical experience
in management through an established Internship Program. The program involves
prominent regional and national business organizations and agencies of the state
government. The student's training is conducted and supervised by competent manage-
ment personnel according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evaluation of the
student's participation and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate aca-
The Office of Adult Learning
The Office of Adult Learning coordinates and administers programs and services to
adult learners. These include the Adult Degree Program, the Community Enrichment
Series, Leadership Seminars in the Humanities, and Advanced Placement Institutes, as
well as admitting and advising special students.
The Adult Degree Program
The Adult Degree Program was established in 1 982 to meet the needs of adults 24 years
of age and older who wish to pursue a degree as full-time or part-time students.
This program features individualized academic advising, a required seminar, evaluation
of previous college work, credit for prior learning, and the opportunity for independent
directed study. Students in the Adult Degree Program may major in one of the traditional
disciplines or they may choose to design an interdisciplinary major. Students admitted
to the Adult Degree Program are candidates for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies Degree.
In addition to its academic programs, Millsaps provides a variety of special services for
adult students. These include career planning and placement assistance, financial aid,
orientation, newsletters, and the Adult Student Association.
Further information about the Adult Degree Program may be obtained by contacting the
Office of Adult Learning.
Community Enrichment Series
Since 1972, Millsaps College has offered to the Greater Jackson community a variety
of opportunities through the Community Enrichment Series. These are non-credit
courses which require no prerequisites and no examinations. They cover a variety of
special interest areas such as "Talking Your Way Through France," "Understanding the
Stock Market," "Computer Basics," "Assertiveness Training," "Landscape Design,"
and "Pottery." Enrichment courses are available in the fall, winter and spring.
Leadership Seminars in the Humanities
Established in 1 987 and made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment
for the Humanities, Leadership Seminars in the Humanities bring together Millsaps
professors in the humanities with corporate and professional leaders in the community.
These seminars, which carry graduate credit, offer an opportunity for serious engage-
ment with intellectual issues affecting society and the individual.
Advanced Placement Institutes
Designed for teachers who teach Advanced Placement courses to high school students.
Advanced Placement Institutes are offered each summer by instructors recommended
by the College Board. Participants work with these master teachers to plan and prepare
courses that will help students to become well prepared for college courses and to
perform creditably on the Advanced Placement Examinations.
The Graduate Program
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 students
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. For further information about the

Grades, Honors, Class Standing
The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written
examination as explained in the class syllabus.
A represents superior work.
B represents above the average achievement.
C represents an average level of achievement.
D represents a less than satisfactory level of achievement in the regularly
prescribed work of the class.
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.
WF indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while failing.
I indicates that the work is incomplete and will be counted as a "F" if the
incomplete is not removed by the end of the following semester.
IP indicates work in progress.
CR represents passing work in a non-graded course taken for credit (not computed
NC represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for credit (not computed in
NR indicates no grade reported.
The completion of any academic course shall entitle a student to the following grade
points for a course unit:
A four grade points
B three grade points
C two grade points
D one grade point
Grade points earned in fractional course units are that fraction of those awarded for a
corresponding grade in a course unit. A grade point average is determined by dividing
the total number of grade points by the number of academic courses taken.
The following number of courses is required:
For sophomore rating 7 course units
For junior rating 15 course units
For senior rating 23 course units
A student's classification is determined at the beginning of the fall and spring semester.
Degree-seeking students taking 3 or more course units will be classified as full-time
Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 3 course units will be classified as part-time
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. Special students observe
the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency as regular
Credit/No Credit Grade Option
With the approval of the instructor, some courses may be taken for credit/no credit. 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 participation of the
student in all class activities. Credit signifies work of passing quality or above, though
it carries no grade points. Core courses may not be taken for credit/no credit and courses
required for a student's major ordinarily may not be taken for credit/no credit. No more
than two courses graded credit/no credit may be included in the 32 course units required
A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. No
additional course credit is earned, but the highest grade earned in the course is used in
determining the cumulative grade point average. A course previously taken at Millsaps
may be repeated at another institution with the prior approval of the registrar in
consultation with the appropriate department chair. No additional course credit is
earned, but all grades are calculated into the cumulative grade point average. All grades
reported for the course remain a part of the permanent academic record. Millsaps does
not guarantee the availability of courses for repeat credit.
Graduation With Distinction
A student whose grade point average is 3.2 for the entire course shall be graduated Cum
Laude; one whose grade point average is 3.6 shall be graduated Magna Cum Laude; and
one whose grade point average is 3.9 and who has a rating of excellent on the
comprehensive examination shall be graduated Summa Cum Laude. To be eligible for
graduation Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude, a student must have
passed at least 16 course units in Millsaps College.
In determining eligibility for distinction for students who have not done all their college
work at Millsaps, the grade 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
average both on the work done at Millsaps and on college courses as a whole.
Graduation With Honors
A student who successfully completes the Honors Program in a selected field of study
receives the designation "with honors" in that field at graduation.
A full-time student with junior standing and a 3.0 grade point average may apply to a
faculty member for permission to undertake an honors project. Admission into the
Honors Program is in the spring semester of the junior year upon approval of the director.
At that time the student enrolls in a directed study course. Honors Research L This work
is ordinarily completed in the fall semester of the senior year in the course, Honors
Research U, but the student's project description must be approved by the Honors
Council before proceeding to Honors IL A letter grade is assigned for each of these two
courses. The two semesters of research are to culminate in an honors thesis to be
defended before the Honors Council. In the last semester, the student enrolls in the
Honors Colloquium, designed to bring together all students in the program for intellec-
tual exchange. The honors candidate who successfully presents and defends the thesis,
who completes the colloquium, who has a 3.0 grade average, and who has a 3.33 grade
average in the three honors courses will be graduated with honors.
A student may voluntarily withdraw candidacy for honors at any time. Regular college
regulations apply in the matter of dropping a course and receiving course credit.
54 Administration of the Curriculum
Election to Phi Beta Kappa
The Phi Beta Kappa chapter at Millsaps elects members from the graduating class each
spring. To be considered for election to membership in Phi Beta Kappa, a student must
meet the following criteria:
1 . Completion of requirements for a B.A., B.S. or B.L.S. degree with a
liberal arts or sciences major.
2. A minimum of one-half of the work required for graduation completed at
3. One course unit in mathematics and two course units in a foreign language
(or one course unit at the intermediate level).
4. ♦A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.6 based on seven or
more semesters. (Grades earned in applied or professional work are not
counted in computing GPA for the purpose of election to Phi Beta Kappa.)
Transfer students must meet the required grade point average both on work done at
Millsaps and on their college work as a whole. No more than 10 percent of the liberal
arts and science graduates may be elected to membership from a graduating class.
At the end of the fall and spring semester, the Dean's List is issued and consists of those
students who for that semester:
(a) earned at least 3 course units.
(b) earned a grade point average of at least 3.2 for that semester.
(c) earned grades of C or higher in each course.
(d) met the standard, in the judgment of the dean, of being a good citizen of
the College community.
Four course units per semester is considered the normal load for full-time students.
Students may not take more than 4 1/4 course units of academic work unless they have
a grade point average of 2.5 on the last semester. No student may take more than 4 1/2
course units without a grade point average of 3.00 on the last semester and permission
from the dean. No student may receive credit for more than 5 course units in a semester
under any circumstances. In order to be classified as a full-time student, one must take
no fewer than 3 course units. However, a graduating senior taking all work required to
complete the degree requirements, in their last semester, may be counted as full-time
with fewer than three course units except for financial aid purposes.
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 or the dean. 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 ordinarily recorded as F. Students who drop a course without securing the
required approvals will receive an F.
A student desiring to withdraw from the College within any term must obtain permission
from the dean or associate dean of the college and file a withdrawal form. No refund will
be considered unless this written notice is procured and presented to the Business Office.
Refunds will be made according to the policy outlined under the Financial Regulations
A student who withdraws with permission after the first two weeks of a semester is
recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing) in each course. A
student who withdraws without permission receives a grade of F in each course.
Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or any other
circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose of 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.
For full-time students entering the college as freshmen, it is necessary to pass in the first
semester 1 .5 course units of academic work in order to remain in college. Thereafter a
full-time student must pass 2.25 course units of academic work each semester to be
eligible to continue in college.
Students who have been suspended may petition the dean 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 grade point
average 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 grade point average during
a regular semester or during a summer session at Millsaps College in which the student
is enrolled for at least 3 course unit credits. A student on academic probation for two
semesters is placed on academic suspension.
Unsatisfactory Academic Progress
A part-time student who makes a grade point average of less than 1 .5 in any semester
will be notified that he or she is making unsatisfactory academic progress. To be
removed from that classification the student must make a 2.0 grade point average during
a regular semester or summer session.
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.
56 Administration of the Curriculum
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 instructor, or when in danger of failing the course.
The reporting of absences is for counseling purposes only, and has no effect on the
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. 1
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. Explanation 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
commitments. Faculty members, however, may not excuse students from attendance on
the two days preceding and the two days following vacation periods without the express
permission of the dean.
Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the College and the
particular policies operative in each class. Further details relating to attendance are in
the student handbook. Major Facts.
Permission to make up an examination or alter the time for an examination may be
granted only through the dean of the college. Any special examination, if granted, must
be held no later than the sixth week of the next regular semester.
A student who has been excluded from a course by recommendation of the instructor
may petition the dean of the college within one week for the privilege of a reinstatement
examination. This examination, to be prepared and administered by the instructor, shall
cover the work of the course up to that date. 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 only in the semester in which
they complete their comprehensive examinations, and 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 exempt from
any examination in more than one term or semester.
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 the college.
Honor in an Academic Community
Millsaps College is an academic community where men and women pursue a life of
scholarly inquiry and intellectual growth. The foundation of this community is a spirit
of personal honesty and mutual trust. In order to maintain trust among members of the
College, faculty and students must adhere to these basic ethical principles. Honor within
an academic community is not simply a matter of rules and procedures; it is an
opportunity to put personal responsibility and integrity into action. When students
accept the implicit bond of honor of an academic community, they liberate themselves
to pursue their academic goals in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect.
The College has the responsibility and authority to establish standards for scholarship,
student conduct and campus life. Therefore, it cannot condone violations of local, state
or federal laws or conduct detrimental to students or to the College. Students, as adults,
are presumed to know the law as to illegal conduct prohibited by municipal, state or
federal law and are governed thereby.
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.
Millsaps requires from every student sober, decorous and upright conduct as long as he/
she remains a member of the college community, whether he or she be within its
precincts or not. No individual or group should cause serious discomfort or injury to
others or to the community. This will include such acts as obstruction or disruption of
teaching, research, administration or other collegiate activities and unauthorized entry
to or use of college facilities.
The College expects students to be concerned with the physical and psychological well-
being of others and cannot condone behavior which exploits another individual.
Students and organizations are expected to comply with rules governing the academic,
social, and residential life of the College. They are expected to comply with directions
of college officials. Students are also responsible for the behavior of their guests while
on Millsaps property and/or at Millsaps functions.
The trustees and administration are fully committed to the spirit of the United Methodist
Church and are equally committed to comply with the laws of the state of Mississippi
regarding the consumption of alcoholic beverages, (which shall include, but not be
limited to, light wine and beer) on the Millsaps College campus. It is the position of the
College that the use of alcoholic beverages is not a part of, nor does it contribute to, the
total educational emphasis of Millsaps College and to the full and abundant life that God
wills for each person.
The College expects students to comply with the laws of the State of Mississippi and the
College regulations relating to alcoholic beverages and to accept responsibility for their
behavior as members of the College community. The College does not condone the
illegal possession, use, distribution or sale of alcoholic beverages.
A student may consume alcoholic beverages only within the privacy of his or her room
whether in the residence hall or in the fraternity/sorority facilities and only in accordance
with the state law which prohibits the drinking of alcoholic beverages for those under
21 years of age. Regardless of age and state law requirements, no student is allowed to
consume alcoholic beverages outside the confines of a student's room.
Fraternity and sorority facilities are subject to all applicable state laws and city
ordinances. The display, serving, consumption, or any other use of alcoholic beverages
is prohibited in public areas which include the lounges, porches, yards, grounds and
other external structures of such facilities.
58 Administration of the Curriculum
Consumption of alcoholic beverages for those of age in a student's room in the residence
hall or fraternity/sorority facilities must never result in irresponsible behavior or
contribute to an environment not conducive to the realization of the primary goals and
aims of the College.
The possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages are not permitted in any public
area on the campus. This includes all public areas on the campus. Public areas are defined
as any area outside of the student's private room.
Complete regulations governing the use of alcoholic beverages on campus and at off-
campus functions may be found in the current Major Facts, the student handbook.
The College cannot condone violations of federal, state or local laws regarding any
illegal drugs, narcotics and dangerous substances. The use, possession or distribution of
such substances, except as expressly permitted by law, are not permitted.
Students guilty of serious infractions of College regulations may be subject to disciplin-
ary action including: social probation, disciplinary probation, suspension or expulsion
at the discretion of the Judicial Council, the vice president for enrollment and student
affairs or the president of the College dependent upon the original jurisdiction. Cases
involving a recommendation of suspension or expulsion are automatically appealable
to the president of the College.
Social probation is a warning to a student regarding conduct standards. Its primary
purpose is to serve as a period of time in which a student is asked to prove responsibility
to himself/herself and the College.
When a student is placed on social probation he/she is prohibited from participating in
extracurricular campus activities such a fraternity/sorority social activities, intramural
and varsity sports. In addition a student may hold no office of campus leadership.
When an organization is placed on social probation, the organization may not sponsor
social activities in the name of the organization for the period of the social probation.
Disciplinary probation is the most serious penalty, short of suspension and expulsion,
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.
When a student is placed on disciplinary probation, suspended or exp>elled, parents are
notified and asked to come to the campus for a conference with the President and an
associate dean of students.
A more comprehensive statement of college policy regarding student behavior is
contained in the student handbook. Major Facts. Specific regulations pertaining to
residence halls and other facets of campus life are available through the Office of Student

Requirements for Major: Students may complete a major in French or in Spanish with
a minimum of nine courses in the same language. They are, however, encouraged to
take eleven or more. To major in a modem language, students must successfully
complete at least seven courses beyond the basic level. Of the courses for the major,

Requirements for Minor: Students may elect a minor in French, German, or Spanish.
Students are encouraged to take eight courses, but a minimum of six courses in the
same language is required. To minor in a modem language, students must success-
fully complete at least four courses beyond the Basic level. Of the courses for the
minor, at least one must be a literature course. All courses beyond the intermediate
level must be taken at Millsaps.
Placement in Modern Languages: Since proficiency in a language can be both a
culturally beneficial and financially rewarding skill, students are encouraged to take
advantage of the opportunity to leam a language well. To help decide the level at
which students should study a modem language, the department gives a standard
placement test just before the beginning of the fall semester. All entering students
who have previously studied a language and wish to study a modem language at
Millsaps must take this test. Students beginning a new language are not required to
take this placement test.
To satisfy the language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Liberal
Studies degree, students must demonstrate proficiency at the intermediate level (that
is, score high enough on the placement test to show that their proficiency is equal to
that of Millsaps students who have successfully completed the intermediate course)
or present transcripts verifying that they have completed the equivalent of Millsaps'
Basic and Intermediate language courses in a specific language.
By taking this placement test and scoring high enough to demonstrate proficiency
at the intermediate level, students can satisfy the language requirement (that is, they
will not be required to take the Basic and intermediate courses). No academic credit,
however, is awarded via the test. Those demonstrating proficiency at the intermedi-
ate level are encouraged to continue their study of the language by taking advanced
Students whose score places them at the beginning of the intermediate level must
take and successfully complete the Intermediate course. Those whose score places
them below the intermediate level will be required to take the Basic courses and the
Intermediate course in order to satisfy the language requirement.

not be given for the more advanced course for which the prerequisite is listed. The
only exception to taking the prerequisites is placement into courses via the department's
standard placement test.

Goals for Music Learning: Musical indep)endence is the basic aim for music learning
at Millsaps College. Music learning goals have been established to guide students
through their study. They must know how to perform music, to listen to music, to
create music, and to analyze music. Students are expected to move beyond the
merely able status in performance toward one that is securely grounded in under-
standing of performance norms, acceptable deviations from norms, and critical
application of performance skills. Listening skills must be nurtured and highly
developed to allow students to recognize, evaluate, and learn from artistic perfor-
mance. Whether students are forming a musical interpretation or composing an
original work, creating is essential to music study and focuses students' personal
involvement with the art. Keen visual and aural perception of the formal dimensions
of music enable students to understand and manage musical thought processes.
Attainment of the above goals should provide a strong intellectual and philosophical
foundation for music study which guides students toward musical independence.
Requirements for Major: Students may complete a major in music with a Bachelor of
Music, Bachelor of Art, or Bachelor of Science degree. All music majors must
complete a basic eleven-course music study that includes three courses and four 1/

The Else School of Management offers undergraduate degree programs which lead to
the BB A degree with majors in accounting or in business administration, and to BA, BS,
or BLS degrees with a major in economics. An MBA degree is offered which can be
completed in one year for students who have completed the BBA program at Millsaps.
The Else School of Management has been awarded national professional accreditation
by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business.
Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
Educational Goals: The curriculum of the Bachelors of Business Administration
degree (BBA) is designed to provide an educational base for a lifetime of learning
to enable each student to realize his or her potential. To accomplish this mission,
educational goals have been identified to develop in each student: 1 ) a management
outlook toward organizations and the ability to work with others to accomplish
common goals; 2) the ability to organize information for analysis and decision
making; 3) an understanding of the standards of professional behavior which are
consistent with ethical precepts; 4) an awareness of the attributes necessary to attain
positions of leadership; 5) an understanding of innovation and the importance of
agents of change in society; 6) a global perspective; and 7) an understanding of the
changing societal, political, and cultural environments that organizations face.
Degree Requirements: Students must major in either accounting or business adminis-
tration to earn a BBA degree. The BBA academic program is a three-year, integrated
body of study designed to enable students to enter a profession or pursue advanced
108 Departments of Instruction
study. Since the program is integrated, the courses are sequenced so that each course
is taught with the assumption that the students in the class have a common academic
background. Students must be formally admitted to the Else School before they may
take junior-level course work. At least sixteen of the thirty-two courses necessary to
graduate from Millsaps must be selected from courses offered by academic divisions
other than the Else School.
Admission: Students must formally apply for admission to the Else School in order to
take junior-level courses. The principal factor the Else School admissions committee
will consider as an admissions criterion is the prior academic work of the applicant.
Students must have completed College Algebra, Survey of Calculus, and Computer
Survival, or equivalent course work, before commencing course work in the Else
School. Students should normally apply for admission no later than January of the
spring term of the sophomore year. In general, all sophomore-level BBA core
courses must be completed before commencing junior-level courses (see one
exception to this rule under Minor Requirements).
Curriculum: Nine core courses, two of which are one-half semester courses, are
required of all BBA students in addition to the courses required for the major. The
courses must be taken in the sequence prescribed.
Fall Term: Principles of Economics (1 course)
Introduction to the Legal Environment of Business (1/2 course)
Business Statistics and Computing 1(1/2 course)
Spring Term: Business Statistics and Computing II (1 course)
Survey of Accounting (1 course)
Fall Term: Introduction to Management ( 1 course)
Operations Management with Computing (1 course)
Spring Term: Fundamentals of Marketing ( 1 course)
Principles of Corporate Finance (1 course)
In the above sequence, students must have passed all required courses in one year
before proceeding to the courses in the next year.
Major Requirements: A minimum of twelve courses are required to earn a BBA degree
in business administration and a minimum of fourteen courses for a BBA degree in
accounting. To graduate, the student must achieve a minimum 2.0 grade point
average on courses used to meet this requirement. In addition to the BBA core,
students pursuing a major in Business Administration must complete Business
Strategy and three Else School elective courses. Students pursuing a major in
Accounting must complete the BBA core. Intermediate Accounting I and II,
Managerial Accounting I, Federal Taxation of Income, Advanced Financial Ac-
counting, and Auditing I.
Minor Requirements: A student may elect a minor in business administration by
completing Principles of Economics, Survey of Accounting, Introduction to the
Legal Environment of Business, Business Statistics with Computing I, and Introduc-
tion to Management with a grade point average of 2.0 or higher in these courses.
Students pursuing a minor in business administration may take Introduction to
Management without previously completing Business Statistics with Computing II.
Transfer Credit: Students may transfer from other schools and gain admission into the
Else School, but at least fifty percent of the BBA course work must be taken at
Millsaps. Transfer students from two-year colleges will receive credit for Survey of
Accounting if they have passed six hours of Accounting Principles, credit for
Principles of Economics if they have passed six hours of Economic Principles, credit
for Introduction to the Legal Environment of Business if they have had Business
Law, and credit for Business Statistics and Computing I if they have had the first
course in Business Statistics.
Credit for junior and senior-level courses taken at other four year colleges will be
evaluated on an individual basis by the appropriate Else School committee; credit for
such courses will not be given if taken at a two-year college. The four junior core
courses must be taken at Millsaps. For business administration majors. Business
Strategy must be taken at Millsaps and for accounting majors at least three of the
accounting courses required in the major must be taken at Millsaps.
Ordinarily, course work taken more than five years prior to admission or re-
admission to the Else School and academic work in which the student receives a
grade below "C" should be repeated or otherwise validated. The Academic Affairs
Committee of the Else School will evaluate extenuating circumstances for excep-
tions to these standards.
Requirements for B.A., B.S., or B.L.S. degree with major in Economics: In addition
to other stated degree requirements for the B.A., B.S., or B.L.S. degrees, the student
majoring in economics is required to take College Algebra and Survey of Calculus,
as a minimum level of mathematical competence, and Computer Survival. Ten
additional courses are required for the economics major, including Introduction to
the Legal Environment of Business, Business Statistics with Computing I, Business
Statistics with Computing II, Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomic
Theory, Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory, Money and Financial Systems,
Econometrics and Applied Statistics, International Economics, and Senior Seminar.
No additional economics courses are required of economics majors but students may
elect to pursue deeper study in the field by taking Public Finance and/or History of
Economic Thought. Survey of Accounting is also recommended for students
pursuing the economics major. It is highly recommended that students planning
graduate study in economics take at least Precalculus (or College Algebra and
College Trigonometry) and Analytic Geometry and Calculus I and II.
