The Millsaps Purpose 



Millsaps College is a community founded on trust in disciplined learning as a key to a 
rewarding life. 

In keeping with its character as a liberal arts college and its historic role in the mission 
of the United Methodist Church, Millsaps seeks to provide a learning environment 
which increases knowledge, deepens understanding of faith, and inspires the develop- 
ment of mature»citizens with the intellectual capacities, ethical principles, and sense of 
responsibility that are needed for leadership in all sectors of society.

individual and collaborative problem solving; creativity, sensitivity, and tolerance; the

Information for Prospective Students 



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 1908, 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 1990. 
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 ( 1 9 1 2- 1 923), Dr. 
David Martin Key ( 1 923- 1 93 8), 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. 



General Information 

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 
Jackson. 

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 Science, Master of Accoun- 
tancy, Master of Business Administration, and Master of Liberal Studies. 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 Teacher Education. 



The Millsaps-Wilson Library 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library has more than 270,000 volumes, 800 periodical subscrip- 
tions and a wide variety of electronic services, including CD-ROM and remote 
databases. 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. An electronic library catalog is available on the College-wide 
network. The library is a member of the Central Mississippi Library Council and the 
Southeastern Library Network. 

Computing Facilities 

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 or from their residence hall room, students have access to the fiber optic-based 
College computer network, supported by a cluster of Digital Equipment VAXA^MS 
systems located in the Academic Complex. All students have computer accounts on the 
network and have access to electronic mail and word processing as well as the worldwide 
Internet network. In addition, two personal computer laboratory and terminal classroom 
for teaching are located in Sullivan-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 100-acre campus is valued at about $30 million. Chief administrative offices are in 
the newly renovated James Boyd Campbell Administrative Center. Completed in 1 993, 
the Center includes Whitworth Hall and Sanders Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, was 
renovated in 198 1 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, Education, Psychology and Sociology. The Olin Hall of Science, 
dedicated in 1988, 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 Millsaps-Wilson Library was built in 1927. 



10 Information for Prospective Students 



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 
facility. Other athletic facilities include tennis courts and fields for football, baseball, 
and soccer. 

The Boyd Campbell Student Center houses the Office of Student Affairs, the bookstore, 
post office, student activity quarters, a recreation area, the grill and dining hall. 

There are two single-sex women, one single-sex men and three coed residence halls. All 
are centrally cooled and heated. 

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

Applying for Admission 

Students applying to Millsaps as freshmen may choose from three decision plans. 
Early Decision Plan 

Students who have decided that Millsaps is clearly their first choice college and are 
certain they will enroll if admitted may apply under the Early Decision Plan. These 
candidates learn of admission and financial aid decisions earlier than all other 
applicants. By applying under the Early Decision Plan, students can complete the 
college selection process early in the senior year. Early Decision candidates are 
encouraged to file all admission credentials at the beginning of the senior year, and 
no later than November 15. Students who are admitted under the Early Decision 
Plan will be notified by December 5, and are expected to submit a nonrefundable 
enrollment and housing deposit of $250 by February 1 . 

Early Action Plan 

Early Action is an option for any student wishing to submit complete admission 
credentials and learn of admission early, without making an immediate commit- 
ment to enroll. The Early Action Plan does not require that Millsaps be a student's 
first choice. The deadline for submitting applications for Early Action is December 
1 , and admissions decisions will be mailed by December 20. 

Regular Decision Plan 

The Regular Decision Plan is when the majority of students applying to Millsaps 
submit their applications. Two rounds of consideration are available for students 
under the Regular Decision Plan. Round one is for applicants who submit complete 
admission credentials postmarked by February 1 . Admissions decisions will be 
mailed by March 1 . Round two is for students whose credentials are postmarked 
by March 1 , with decisions mailed by April 1 . 

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 
admission should submit a final transcript upon completion of the course of 
study. 



77 

3. Freshman and junior college 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. 



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. 



Admission Requirements 

Millsaps College accepts without regard to race, color, sex, creed or national origin all 
who are qualified to benefit from its academic program. 

Freshman Admission 

Application for admission as a full-time student with freshman standing may be made 
by one of the following: 

1 . By high school graduation provided that:

foreign languages. Four units of English should be included. 

(b) Students must submit the results of test scores of the American College Test 
(A.C.T.) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.), along with a graded writing 
sample, and an official high school transcript. 

2. By Equivalency Certificate 

(a) Students who have not prepared for college may submit results of the General 
Educational Development Tests (G.E.D.) along with a transcript of work 
completed in lieu of requirements set forth in paragraph 1 (a). 

(b) At the discretion of the Admissions Committee, results of the American College 
Test (A.C.T.) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.) may be required. 

3. Early Admission 

(a) Students who are nearing high school graduation but choose to enter college 
before graduation may apply by submitting an official transcript and results of 
the American College Test (A.C.T.) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.). 

(b) At least 12 units in English, mathematics, social studies, natural sciences, or 
foreign languages must be included. Normally, four units of English are

12 Information for Prospective Students 



Transfer Admission 

A transfer student is one entering Millsaps as a full-time student from another institution 
of higher learning. A completed application for admission and an official transcript from 
each college or university in which the applicant has been enrolled is 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 6e credited toward a degree. 

2. After earning 16 course units or 64 semester hours at a junior or senior college, a 
student may not take additional work at a junior college and have it apply toward 
a degree from Millsaps. 

3. A student must complete the work necessary to fulfill requirements for a major at 
Millsaps. 

4. Grades and quality points earned at another institution will be recorded as they are 
on the transcript. The student must earn at Millsaps at least a 2.0 grade point 
average after transfer credits are entered. 

5. In the case of a student transferring to Millsaps with partial fulfillment of a core 
requirement, the registrar in consultation with the appropriate faculty committee 
may approve a course to substitute for the remainder of the requirement. Students 
should consult with the Office of Records for college policy on courses that will 
substitute. 

6. The student is subject to Millsaps regulations on advanced placement and credit 
by examination. 

7. Credit is not given for correspondence courses. 

Part-time Admission 

A part-time student is one enrolled in a degree program but taking fewer than three 
courses. Requirements for admission and policies pertaining to part-time students are 
the same as those for full-time students. 

Adult Degree Program Admission 

Students are admitted to the Adult Degree Program through the Office of Adult 
Learning. They may be part-time students or full-time students, depending upon their 
occupational and family responsibilities. Application forms, as well as information 
about the program, may be obtained from the Office of Adult Learning. Students seeking 
admission to the Adult Degree Program must submit the following: 

1. The completed application form. 

2. A nonrefundable application fee. 

3. Official transcripts of all previous academic work. 

4. Two letters of recommendation. 

5. An essay introducing the applicant to the ADP Advisory Committee and stating 
the applicant's educational goals. 

Students admitted to the Adult Degree Program are degree candidates. 

Special Student Admission 

A special student is one enrolled in a non-degree program. Applicants should submit the 
Special Student Application Form along with the application fee to the Office of Adult 
Learning. Transcripts of all academic work attempted must be provided to the Office of 
Records prior to the end of the first month of enrollment. The following policies apply 
to special students: 



13 

1 Special students are expected to be 2 1 years of age and must present evidence of 
good character and maturity. Age requirements may be waived. 

2. Special students may enroll for any courses without regard to graduation require- 
ments, but must meet prerequisites for courses chosen. 

3. Special students wishing to apply for a degree program must re-apply, provide 
full credentials and meet admission requirements for degree students. 

4. Special students may not participate in extracurricular activities. 

International Student Admission 

Millsaps College welcomes international students. Admission credentials should be 
submitted well in advance of the semester in which one expects to enroll. Admissions 
credentials include the following: 

1 . Completed admission forms. 

2. Official transcript of all work attempted. 

3. Scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language. 

4. Letters of recommendation from two persons. 

5. The application fee. 

6. A statement of resources for financial support while in the U.S. 

Financial assistance is not available to international students, so they must come 
prepared to pay the full cost of attending Millsaps and to support themselves during 
periods when the College is closed. 

Leaves of Absence and Readmission 

Students who leave the College for one semester or longer may apply for readmission 
by completing the appropriate application and presenting transcripts for all academic 
work attempted while away from the College. Students on approved leaves of absence 
are not required to apply for readmission. They must, however, apply to the Office of 
the Dean for permission to take a leave of absence. Those who are absent for more than 
four years may be required to meet graduation requirements in effect at the time of 
readmission or do additional work in their major in order to qualify for a degree. 

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 two courses in any discipline and to five courses overall, with the 
exception of the Adult Degree Program where the limits are three and eight courses 
respectively. 

Scores on the appropriate Advanced Placement examination, C.L.E.P. subject matter 
examination, or C.E.E.B. achievement test should be sent to the Office of Records for 
evaluation. A score of 4 or 5 is ordinarily required on an AP exam in order to receive 
academic credit, although in some departments a score of 3 is accepted if validated by 
subsequent work in the discipline. If a waiver of requirements or credit is granted, the 
score on the examination used will be recorded on the student's record in lieu of a letter 
grade. An administrative fee will be assessed for each course so recorded. (See the 
section on Special Fees.) 

For information concerning scores necessary to attain course credit for Advanced 
Placement or other examinations, such as C.L.E.P., students should consult with the 
registrar or the dean of the college. 



14 Information for Prospective Students 



Additionally, Adult Degree Program students (BLS candidates) may develop and 
submit appropriate portfolios for consideration for non-graded academic credit. De- 
tailed information is available in the Prior Learning Credit Handbook which is 
distributed during orientation to all ADP students. 



Counseling Services 

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 
appropriate. 



The Career Center 

Career planning begins in the first year of college with the exploration of academic 
majors. Through interest testing, planning and consultation with the Career Center staff, 
students can explore academic interests and possible career directions. 

To aid students in developing their interests, the Career Center sponsors the Meet Your 
Major Fair in the fall and spring at which faculty and students of the majors are available 
to talk to first and second year students about majors and goals. In addition, the Career 
Center offers a large number of internship positions throughout the school year which 
may be taken for credit, or no credit beginning in the sophomore year. 

Developing skills in resume writing, interviewing and job search strategies are empha- 
sized for juniors and senior students through workshops as well as through individual 
sessions with the Career Center staff. Current listings of employment opportunities are 
available for both full and part time work. Opportunities to meet with representatives 
from graduate and professional schools, businesses, and government agencies are 
scheduled through on-campus interview schedules and through the Career Fair. 



Student Housing 

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 
Housing Coordinator. 



75 

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 
residents. 

2. Current residents requesting their same residence hall and rising juniors who are 
currently residents. 

3. Current residents who are not represented in the above categories and rising 
sophomores who are currently residents. 

4. Current residents and returning nonresident 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 of their housing deposit without priority concerning their classi- 
fication. To remain in priority status for residence hall assignments, housing 
deposits and request cards must be submitted to the Business Office 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 12 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. 

Wesson Health Services 

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 
nursing. The nurse works with the school physicians to provide health and emergency 
care for students. The school physicians hold clinic on campus twice a week. Students 
should contact the College nurse (974- 1 207) for appointments and for more information 
regarding the various services provided. 



16 



Student Records 



In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Millsaps 
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.

enrolled for the succeeding semester. Students must settle all financial accounts 
due the College before the final examination period begins. The registrar is not 
permitted to transfer credits until all outstanding indebtedness is paid. No student 
will graduate unless all indebtedness, including library fines and graduation fee, has 
been settled. 

The Millsaps Plan is available for parents who prefer a flexible no-cost system for 
paying educational expenses in regularly scheduled payments over a period of 
months, instead of one lump sum payment at the beginning of each semester. For

Stafford Loans or may qualify for only partial subsidized Stafford Loans. The student 
borrower does not have to show financial need for this loan. Independent students may

FPLUS loans provide parents with additional funds for educational expenses. These

Student Life 













28 Student Life 



Campus Ministry 



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 various social, religious and personal issues; field trips; 
faculty-student-staff programs on various issues on campus and in the larger society; 
fellowship experiences; Bible studies; mentoring programs in neighboring schools; 
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 global violence; 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 citywide 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. Overall, the campus ministry program at Millsaps is one of the most 
varied on campus. 

In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, other programs operating on campus include 
Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Catholic Campus Ministry and Primetime (a Christian 
fellowship group). 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. For the 
second year, we have been pleased to have a member of the Order of the Living Word 
working on campus with Catholic students. 

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. 



Public Events 

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

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. 

Athletics 

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

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

Intercollegiate Athletics 

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

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association for Division IE institutions and the Southern Collegiate Athletic 
Conference. 

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

Intramural Athletics 

The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in basketball, 
volleyball, softball, team handball, flag football, indoor soccer and outdoor soccer. The 
program for women includes volleyball, basketball, softball and flag football. 



Publications 

The Purple and White, the official student newspaper of the College, is edited, 
managed, and written by students. The P & ^provides coverage of Millsaps events, 
as well as serving as a campus forum. 

The Bobashela, the student yearbook of Millsaps College, gives an annual comprehen- 
sive view of campus life. Bobashela is an Indian name for good friend.

essays, and art submitted by Millsaps students.

Millsaps in public performances, campus programs and annual tours throughout 
the state and other areas of the United States. In recent years the choir has traveled 
to Colorado; to Washington, D.C.; to Atlanta to record for the National Protestant

38 Curriculum 



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, and Bachelor of Liberal Studies degrees. Of this total, at 
least 30 courses must be letter- graded academic credit. For transfer purposes, one course 
unit is the equivalent of four semester hours credit. 



Core Requirements for All Degrees 

All Millsaps students must complete ten core courses specifically 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. 

Core Abilities 

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 
constructively. 

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 modern 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. 



39 

Global and Multi-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 — fine 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 disciplinary 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. 

Fine Arts 

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 
events. 

For further information on options 3 and 4, students should consult with the associate 
dean of the division of Arts and Letters. 



40 Curriculum 



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. 



Exemptions 

With the approval of the Core Council, transfer students may substitute courses in 
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 repre- 
sented 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.

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 by the end of the sophomore year. All work 
to be applied toward the major must be approved in advance by the department chair or 
the student's major professor.

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 eight additional course units 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. 



43 

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 
related schools: 

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. 



Pre-Ministerial 



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 
arts. 



44 Curriculum 



Pre-Law 

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) understanding of the institutions with which the law deals, 

(c) ability to think and analyze critically. 

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 
adviser. 



Pre-Social Work 

Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in social work should plan abroad 
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-12). 
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 Educadon (7- 1 2) in English, foreign language, 
mathematics, science, and social studies, and in the special areas (K-12) 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 Teaclier 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 chair of 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 



45 

Mississippi State Department of Education.) To receive the College's recommendation 
for teacher certification, the student must maintain the 2.5 GPA, 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. 

Cooperative Programs 

Business Administration 

Major Plus Program in Business Administration: The Else School of Management 
offers a program designed to permit students pursuing degrees other than the BBA, 
particularly those working toward the BA, to complete the MBA at Millsaps with only 
one additional year of study beyond the bachelors degree program. The Major Plus 
program specifies certain courses from Else School offerings which students take as 
general electives during their bachelors program. These courses are: Principles of 
Economics, Introduction to the Legal Environment of Business, Business Statistics and 
Computing I and II, Survey of Accounting, Introduction to Management, Operations 
Management with Computing, Fundamentals of Marketing, and Principles of Corporate 
Finance. A non BBA student who successfully completes all of the prescribed courses 
will be in a position to earn the MBA by completing only the upper-level courses 
pertinent to that degree program. This can normally be done in one additional year of 
study at Millsaps. For details of the Major Plus program, contact the Director of 
Graduate Business Admissions in 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 BS 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 
the university. 

4-2 BS and MS 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 BS or MS degree 
from the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Science. 

3-3 BS/MS and BS/MBA Programs: Washington University also has a combined 
Degree Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps and then spends 
three years at Washington University earning both the BS and MS from the School of 
Engineering and applied Science or both the BS from the School of Engineering and 
applied Science and the MBA from the Graduate School of Business Administration. 



46 Curriculum 



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 schools 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 BS in agricultural engineering. 

The Combined Plan Program at Columbia University offers BS and MS degrees in 
civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, mining, nuclear, biological, chemical, metallur- 
gical and mineral engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering 
mechanics, applied mathematics (BS only), applied physics, materials science, opera- 
tions research, solid state science (MS 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.

mechanical engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering and 
public policy, systems science and engineering, and business administradon (MBA). 

Military Science 

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. 



47 

(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 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 laboratory. 

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.

Special Programs 



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. Each student must submit an application, completed jointly 
with their proposed faculty mentor, to the program director early in the spring semester. 
Approximately twelve students are selected each year for participation in this program. 



48 Curriculum 



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 study group is based in 
Budapest, Hungary, with excursions to Krakow, Prague, and Vienna. These excursions 
are related to courses, 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, Munich and Prague 

Millsaps offers a six-week summer program in London, England; Munich, Germany; 
and Prague, Czech Republic, which studies the global dimension of the business world 
while introducing students to European culture. 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 in business have an opportunity to visit a variety of 
European businesses and organizations. Liberal arts courses are offered for students not 
majoring in business. 

British Studies at Oxford 

Through membership in the Associated Colleges of the South, Millsaps 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 
Abroad.

The Washington Semester 

The Washington Semester is a joint arrangement between 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 
office. 

Public Administration Internship 

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

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- 
demic credit. 

Adult Learning 

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 non-degree seeking students. 

The Adult Degree Program 

The Adult Degree Program was established in 1982 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 ordinarily candidates for the Bachelor of Liberal 
Studies degree though they may pursue other degrees without some of the special 
features of the BLS.

Grades, Honors, Class Standing 

The grade in any class is determined by tlie 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 

in GPA). 
NC represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for credit (not computed in 

GPA). 
NR indicates no grade reported. 

Grade Points 

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. 

Class Standing 

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. 

Student Status 

Degree-seeking students taking 3 or more course units will be classified as full-time 
students. 

Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 3 course units 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. Special students observe 
the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency as regular 
students. 



55 

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 
for graduation. 

Repeat Courses 

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 II, but the student's project description must be approved by the Honors 
Council before proceeding to Honors II. 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.

3. be in the upper 7% of the junior class or upper 10% of the senior class, and 

4. be approved by the Nominating committee. 

The cumulative grade point average is used to determine class rank. No more than 10% 
of the BBA graduates may be elected to membership from a graduating class. 

Dean's List 

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. 

Course Load 

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 3.0 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.

Administrative Regulations 

Schedule Changes 

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. 

Withdrawal 

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 
section. 

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 smdent who withdraws is entitled to a grade report or to a transcript of credits until 
all accounts are settled in the Business Office. 

Academic Probation 

Students who earn in any semester a grade point average of less than 1 .5 will be placed 
on academic probation. A student may be removed from academic probation by earning 
a 2.0 grade point average during a regular semester or a summer session at Millsaps 
College provided that the student completes at least three course units. 

Academic Suspension 

A student on academic probation for two consecutive semesters will be placed on 
academic suspension. A student may also be placed on academic suspension if 
satisfactory progress has not been made toward a degree. Satisfactory progress is 
defined as maintaining: 

1 .5 cumulative grade point average when seven courses have been attempted, or 

1 .8 cumulative grade point average when more than seven courses and less than 1 5 
courses have been attempted, or 

2.0 cumulative grade point average when greater than 15 courses have been 
attempted, or 

2.0 cumulative grade point average after senior status has been obtained. 

Students who have been suspended may petition the dean of the college in writing for 
readmission. The first suspension will ordinarily be for the duration of one semester, the 



58 Administration of the Curriculum 



second suspension for a full academic year. Students seeking readmission should apply 
as soon as possible in order to assure sufficient time to fulfill whatever requirements may 
be necessary for readmission to be granted. 

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. 

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 
instructor, or when in danger of failing the course. 

The 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. 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. 



59 

Senior Exemptions 

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. 

Student Behavior 

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. 

Alcoholic Beverages 

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 



60 Administration of the Curriculum 



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. 

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. 

Illegal Substances 

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. 

Disciplinary Regulations 

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 

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. 



67 

Disciplinary 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 expelled, 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 
Affairs.

Modern Languages 



Associate Professors: Robert A. Quinn, Ph.D., Chair 

Priscilla Fermon, Ph.D. 

Robert Joel Kahn, Ph.D. 
Assistant Professors: Claudine Chadeyras, Ph.D. 

Karl Markgraf, Ph.D. 

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 modern language, students must successfully 
complete at least seven courses beyond the basic level. Of the courses for the major, 
at least two must be literature courses - preferably the two survey courses - taken at 
Millsaps. 

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 learn 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. 



r 



75^ 

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 our 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 
courses. 

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. 

Students must take the prerequisites for each modern language course, or credit will 
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. 

Study Abroad: Before taking language courses abroad, students are encouraged to 
consult with the department chair. For further information about study abroad 
opportunities, see section on Special Programs.

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. The Else School also offers two graduate 
degrees: Master of Business Administration and Master of Accountancy (MAcc). The 
MBA degree can be completed in one year beyond the bachelors degree for students who 
have completed the BB A program at Millsaps and non-business students, typically those 
pursuing the BA, who complete the Major Plus program. The Master of Accountancy 
generally requires one additional year of study beyond the BB A for students who have 
majored in accounting and wish to complete the educational requirements to take the 
CPA examination. For details of the MBA, Major Plus, and MAcc, see other sections 
of this catalog and other college publications. The Else School of Management has been 
accorded national professional accreditation by the American Assembly of Collegiate 
Schools of Business. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (BB A) 
Educational Goals: The curriculum of the Bachelors of Business Administration 
degree (BB A) 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. 



777 

Degree Requirements: Students major in either accounting or business administration 
to earn a BB A degree. The BB A academic program is a three-year, integrated body 
of 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. To insure educational diversity, at least 16 courses must be 
non-business courses. Up to 2.25 economics courses and 1 .5 statistics/quantitative 
methods courses may be considered as non business courses. 

Freshman Prerequisites: Students pursuing the BBA should complete College 
Algebra, Survey of Calculus (or Precalculus followed by Analytical Geometry and 
Calculus I), and Computer Survival (or a higher level computer curse) during their 
freshman year. College Algebra and Survey of Calculus (Precalculus, Analytical 
Geometry and Calculus I) satisfy the Core 8 and 9 requirements respectively. In 
general, all sophomore-level BBA core courses should be completed before com- 
mencing junior-level courses (see one exception to this rule for business minors 
noted under Minor Requirements). 

Curriculum: Nine core courses, two of which are one-half semester courses for a total 
of eight semester course credits, are required of all BBA students in addition to the 
courses required for the particular major, business administration or accounting. 
The business administration major includes the BBA core courses plus Business 
Strategy and three Else School elective courses for a total of 1 2 semester course 
credits. The accounting major includes the BBA core courses and seven additional 
courses for a total of fifteen semester course credits. Courses should be taken in the 
sequence prescribed. The BBA core courses are: 

Sophomore Year 

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)

Junior Year 

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) 

Major Requirements: A minimum of 12 semester course credits are required to earn 
a BBA degree in business administration. In addition to the BBA core, students 
pursuing a major in business administration must complete Business Strategy, to be 
taken in the senior year, and three Else School elective courses. 

Students pursuing the BBA with a major in accounting must complete a minimum 
of 15 semester courses including the BBA core, Intermediate Accounting I and II, 
Managerial Accounting, Federal Taxation of Income, Advanced Financial Account- 
ing, Auditing and Senior Seminar in Accounting. 

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. 
Minors in accounting are not offered. 



112 Departments of Instruction 



Transfer Credit: Students may transfer from other schools and pursue the BB A at the 
Else School, but at least fifty percent of the BBA course work must be taken at 
Millsaps. Transfer students from two-year colleges can 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. They must, however, take the four junior-level BBA 
core courses at Millsaps. 

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. 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. 

Master of Accountancy Program (MAcc) 

The Else School offers the Master of Accountancy degree which is designed for 
students who intend to pursue professional careers in public accounting, business, 
and the government/non-profit sector. The MAcc fulfills the educational require- 
ments to sit for the CPA examination in states which have adopted the AICPA's 1 50 
credit hour requirement. In general, the MAcc program involves a fifth year of study 
beyond the accounting major BBA degree. Students who plan to seek the MAcc 
degree should take the basic accounting major as outlined above. For more details 
about the MAcc program, see any member of the accounting faculty and other 
college publications. 

Student's Guide to Earning a BBA 

The following is a four-year curriculum typical of Millsaps students majoring in 
business administration in the BBA program. Though this is representative of a 
B.B.A. student's four-year course of study, there are opportunities for individual 
variation, double majoring, and minoring depending upon the student's particular 
interests. By the end oftheir sophomore year, BBA students are generally expected 
to have completed Core 1 through 9 as well as the math and computer courses which 
are the foundations for the BBA curriculum. It should be noted that a BBA student 
may choose to take more than the minimum of 12 Else School courses but at least 
16 courses must be non business courses.
