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. 

The programs of the College are designed to promote independent and critical thinking; 
individual and collaborative problem solving; creativity, sensitivity, and tolerance; the 
power to inform and challenge others; and an expanded appreciation of humanity and 
the universe. 

Pursuant of this purpose, Millsaps College is committed to the following objectives 
through its academic program, support services, and outreach to the wider community:

backgrounds

thinking

academic progress 
to enable undergraduate students to be successful in graduate and professional degree 

programs 
to prepare graduate students with a general management outlook toward organizations

Information for Prospective Students 



History of the College 

Millsaps College was founded in 1890 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 (1910-1912), Dr. Alexander Farrar Watkins (1912-1923), Dr. 
David Martin Key (1923-1938), Dr. Marion Lofton Smith (1938-1952), Dr. Homer 
Ellis Finger, Jr. (1952-1964), 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 Mississippi Department of Ar- 
chives and History, the State Law Library, the Jackson/Hinds Library System, the 
Rowland Medical Library and a number of other special libraries unique to the capitol 
area. Together, they provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. Cultural 
advantages include the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, New Stage Theatre, Missis- 
sippi 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 Business programs offered by the Else 
School of Management, Millsaps College are accredited 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. Copies of any of these 
documents may be requested by writing the Vice President and Dean of the College. 



The Millsaps-Wilson Library 

The Millsaps-Wilson Library has a print collection of 200,000 volumes, with 650 print 
subscriptions, access to over 1 ,700 electronic subscriptions and full-text titles, and a 
wide variety of electronic services, including both general and scholarly on-line 
databases. It provides seating for 350 in individual study carrels, tables and study 
rooms, as well as browsing and lounge areas. There is a collection of audiovisual 
materials and facilities for their use. Special collections include the Eudora Welty 
Collection, the Lehman Engel Collection, the Archives of the United Methodist Church 
in Mississippi, the Kellogg Collection of children's books, the Paul Ramsey Collection 
in Applied Ethics, the Rare Book Room, and the Millsaps College Archives. There are 
more than 40 computers and terminals for student use of library and campus databases 
and WWW access. The library maintains agreements with other libraries on the local 
and national level for sharing of resources through interlibrary lending. Document 
delivery services from commercial services are also available. The library is a member 
of the SOLINET/OCLC network, the Associated Colleges of the South, Central 
Mississippi Library Council and other organizations. 



Computing Facilities 



Millsaps has developed outstanding computing resources for teaching, learning and 
research. Computing facilities include multiple NT and VMS servers on a campus- 
wide Ethernet network with over 50 networked printers and nearly 500 College-owned 
personal computers. In addition to three special purpose labs, Millsaps provides six 
general access computer laboratories, each equipped with a varying number of 
computers, for the academic computing needs of the general student body. The College 
also offers full network access from all residence halls. Millsaps provides all users 
direct access to the Internet via a high-speed Tl connection, including electronic mail 
and personal web pages. 



Buildings and Grounds 

The college occupies a beautiful 100-acre residential campus in the heart of Jackson, 
Mississippi, the state capital. Chief administrative offices are in the newly renovated 
James Boyd Campbell Administrative Center. Completed in 1994, the Center includes 
Whitworth Hall and Sanders Hall. Murrah Hall, built in 1914, was renovated in 1981 
to house the Else School of Management. Sullivan-Harrell Hall, built in 1928 and 
renovated in 1990, houses the departments of Computer Studies, Geology, Mathemat- 
ics, Physics, Education, Psychology and Sociology. The Olin Hall of Science, dedi- 
cated in 1988, houses the departments of Biology and Chemistry. 



10 Information for Prospective Students 



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

The Gertrude C. Ford 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, Office of Records, and the Office of Adult Learning. It also 
contains sky-lit art studios, a student computer terminal room, a music laboratory and 
classrooms. 

The current Physical Activities Center, dedicated in 1974, has courts for basketball, 
tennis, badminton and volleyball. However, construction of a new fitness center will 
be completed in December 1999. This will provide a new state-of-the-art fitness center 
with a multipurpose court, cardiotheater and aerobics room, a full array of fitness and 
weight training equipment, handball and squash courts, additional locker room, team 
room and rehab facilities for men's and women's athletics, and office space for the 
athletics staff. Other athletic facilities include swimming pool, tennis courts, and fields 
for football, baseball, and soccer. 

Renovation of the Boyd Campbell Student Center will be completed in January of 2000 
and will include an expanded student dining area, special events dining, a coffee house 
with outdoor dining available, an enlarged bookstore, a post office, additional space for 
student organizations, and renovated office space for student affairs personnel. 

A new plaza, linking the Physical Activities Center, the Student Center, and Olin Hall 
will provide an exciting environment to relax, dine, work, socialize and linger. There 
will be permanent seating with network connections to create outdoor dining and study 
areas in the information age. 

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

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

(MBA or MAcc) to determine if a Leave of Absence is appropriate in their situation. 
A Leave of Absence allows students to sit out for a semester. A Leave of Absence 
maintains a student's eligibility to retain academic scholarships; however they must 
reapply for need-based aid. Leaves of Absence are granted for one-semester, although 
in unusual circumstances a petition may be filed for an extension. 

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 



14 Information for Prospective Students 



are not required to apply for readmission. International students must also meet with 
the international student advisor for required signatures. 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, International Baccalaureate 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 seven courses 
overall, with the exception of the Adult Degree Program where the limits are three and 
eight courses respectively. International students may also be eligible for advanced 
placement depending upon the educational system completed (for example: IB, A- 
levels, Abiture, etc.). 

Scores on the appropriate Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate 
examinations, CLEP subject matter examination or CEEB achievement test should be 
sent to the Office of Records for evaluation. If a waiver of requirements 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.) 

A score of 4 or 5 is ordinarily required on an AP exam in order to receive academic 
credit. For information concerning scores necessary to attain credit for any AP 
examination, or for other exams such as IB or CLEP, students should consult with the 
registrar or Dean of the College. International students should contact the Office of 
International Initiatives with any questions about their advanced placement eligibility. 

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



Orientation and Advisement 

Orientation and Perspectives are Millsaps programs designed to ease the transition to 
college life. Orientation occurs the four days before classes start. These days are filled 
with helpful and fun activities which prepare students for life on campus and introduce 
them to their classmates. Perspectives is a course for new students which explores the 
issues facing college students and the roles that they play on campus. This course, led 
by faculty and upper-class students, gives new students a forum for discussion of key 
issues and concerns. 

The Perspectives faculty member serves as a student's initial advisor. This person 
remains a student's advisor until the time that the student declares a major. Once the 
student selects a major field of study, a faculty advisor in that field is assigned as the 
advisor.

Counseling Services 



Since counseling is a wonderful opportunity for personal growth, a wide array of 
counseling services are offered through Counseling Services. The counselor can assist 
students in improving academic performance 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 

The Career Center offers a variety of services and programs for all students and alumni 
in the area of academic and career development. The primary areas of focus are: career/ 
major exploration, internships, graduate school advisement and preparation, student 
employment, and job placement assistance. 

Students who are undecided regarding their major and/or career can attend the annual 
"Meet Your Major Fair." This event provides new students the opportunity to meet with 
faculty from all the academic departments on campus. Career testing and individual 
appointments are also available with the Career Center staff. Other options include a 
computerized career planning program for individuals seeking a more comprehensive 
search that matches their interests, talents, and values with potential careers. 

The internship program is an excellent opportunity for students to "test out" a field of 
interest while gaining valuable professional experience. Student interns can earn 
academic credit on a credit/no credit basis. Students can participate in an internship as 
early as the second semester of their freshmen year and any subsequent fall, spring or 
summer semesters. It is strongly recommended to plan ahead for an internship by 
visiting the Career Center the semester before you plan to intern. Information sessions 
are held throughout the year to prepare students interested in obtaining an internship. 
A wide variety of internships are offered both locally and nationally in the areas of 
government, health care, non-profit, business, industry, finance, and law. New intern- 
ship positions may also be developed with the assistance of the Career Center staff. 

Other programs and services that assist students in exploring potential careers include: 
CareerView Day (job shadowing), informational interviews, student employment, and 
community volunteer/service opportunities. Workshops and seminars are held through- 
out the year to help students further explore their career options. 

Graduate and professional school advisement is also available. The Career Resource 
Library offers graduate school guides and references, CD Roms, and other electronic 
and printed resources on this topic. Information on GRE, LSAT, MCAT, GMAT and 
other graduate exams and preparation resources are available through the Career 
Center. 

Seniors and alumni can access full-time positions which are listed both in the Career 
Center and on the internet. A resume referral service, on-campus recruiting, job search 
links, alumni network receptions, and mock interviews assist students with their career 
search. In addition, the annual "Job Fair" and the "Senior Institute" provide valuable 
information and contacts for those preparing for their job search. 



16 Information for Prospective Students 



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 profession- 
als including the Dean of Students, Director of Student Housing, Residence Life 
Coordinators, and Resident Assistants. 

Housing assignments for new students are made by the Director of Student Housing 
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, room- 
mate choice, and several other factors. Questions regarding the assignment process 
should be forwarded to the Director of Student Housing. 

Millsaps is a residential college based upon the belief that a significant amount of 
learning and growth takes place outside of the classroom. As such, a residency 
requirement has been established. All students classified by credit units as freshmen or 
sophomores are required to live in college residence halls. Exceptions to this policy 
may be granted if the student is married or lives with his or her immediate family in 
Jackson or vicinity. Freshmen and sophomore students are not allowed to live in the 
fraternity house during the academic year. 

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. Single rooms are normally not available. Room rent cannot be refunded after 
the semester begins. 

Assignments for upperclass students are made in the spring. The process is arranged 
with Student Affairs and the RHA. Students should contact the RA or RHA represen- 
tative for more information. 

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, must pay the room deposit and will be put on a waiting list 
for room assignments. 

A quiet wing option is offered for first year 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. 



17 

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 (974-1207) for appointments and for more informa- 
tion regarding the various services provided. 



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. 
Any such cost of collection must also be paid in full before the transcript is released.

Financial Regulations 



Payments - All charges for a semester are due and payable two weeks prior to the first 
day of classes. A student is registered and eligible to attend classes only after 
payment or other arrangements have been made with the Business Office. 

Any accounts due for any preceding semester must be paid before a student will be 
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. 

Any student account that remains unpaid at the end of the semester and not 
paid within (30) days will be turned over to an outside collection agency for 
assistance in collecting. The student will be responsible for all collection costs 
and/or attorney fees necessary to collect these accounts. 

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 
more information, write to: The Millsaps Plan 

c/o Business Office 

Millsaps College 

Jackson, MS 39210-0001

weeks, 20 percent. If a student remains in college as long as four weeks, no refund

Student Life 




30 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 and the Office of the Chaplain. Churches provide 
communities of faith for students, faculty and staff. The campus ministry program 
attempts to provide experiences 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 social, religious and personal issues; field trips to various 
places, including the New York Seminar; faculty-student-staff programs addressing 
issues on campus and in the larger society; fellowship experiences; Bible studies; 
monitoring programs in neighboring schools; projects in the community working with 
disadvantaged populations; chapel and special services such as All Saints Day, Advent, 
Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday Services; emphases on such issues as AIDS; 
and many others. In addition, the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity is very active 
and the Midtown Project involves a large number of volunteers in a city-wide effort to 
rehabilitate this historic area of the city which has suffered greatly from drugs, violence 
and deteriorating housing. All of these experiences are meant to communicate an active 
understanding of the life of faith as it addresses crucial social needs. The campus 
ministry program at Millsaps has attracted national attention for its variety and 
effectiveness. 

In addition to the Campus Ministry Team, other programs operating on campus include 
Catholic Campus Ministry, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Wesley Fellowship, 
Millsaps Christian Fellowship and Habitat for Humanity (the first campus chapter in 
Mississippi). In addition, the Episcopal Eucharist is celebrated each week on campus. 
All campus ministry is strongly ecumenical. Furthermore, in addition to the College 
Chaplain, the College has been fortunate to have additional part-time and full-time 
persons working on campus from time to time through such programs as the United 
Methodist Mission Intern Program and the Catholic VOICE program. We are pleased 
currently 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 perspec- 
tives on controversial subjects. Faculty members, local authorities and national experts 
are invited to present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cultural, scientific, political, 
religious and historical topics. 



31 

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

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

There are 14 varsity sports, seven for men and seven for women. The program for men 
includes football, basketball, baseball, cross country, tennis, golf and soccer. The 
women's program includes basketball, tennis, softball, soccer, cross country, volley- 
ball, and golf. 

The programs are conducted on guidelines established by the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association for Division III 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. 

Campus Recreation 

The largest and most popular aspect of campus recreation at Millsaps is the intramural 
program. Intramural sports have provided competition, exercise and recreation for men 
and women at Millsaps for many years. Activities include volleyball, tennis, soccer, 
basketball, golf, flag football, frisbee golf and softball. 

Sport clubs continue to grow in popularity. These organizations are organized by 
faculty, staff and students with a common interest. Active clubs include cycling, dance, 
water skiing, indoor soccer and karate. 

The popularity of fitness has brought aerobics to campus. A variety of aerobics classes 
are offered in the new fitness building and a weight lifting room is also available for all 
students, faculty and staff. 



32 Student Life 



Publications 



The Purple and White, the official student newspaper of the College, is edited, 
managed, and written by students. The P & W 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. 

Stylus, the student literary magazine, publishes twice a year the best poetry, short 
stories, essays, and art submitted by Millsaps students. 



Music, Theatre, and Dance 

The Department of Performing Arts offers many opportunities for students to study and 
perform dance, music, and theatre. Studio classes in dance and music are open to 
all students in the college for academic credit. The studio dance classes are taught 
through Mississippi Ballet, Mississippi's premiere professional ballet company. 
The studio music classes are private lessons in voice or instruments such as piano, 
organ, guitar, etc. Acting classes can be taken by all students at Millsaps College 
who have a keen interest in dramatic performance 

Participation in productions of The Millsaps Players is offered to all students. Casting 
for all plays is by open audition. The Players typically produce four full-length 
plays each year, and senior theatre majors often direct one-act plays for their senior 
projects. Whether you like acting onstage or working backstage, there are 
wonderful dramatic opportunities with The Millsaps Players. Participation in 
Players productions can earn academic credit and also earns credit toward 
membership in Alpha Psi Omega, the national honorary dramatics fraternity. 

The oldest music performance organization at the college is The Millsaps Singers. 
Membership in The Singers is open to all students by audition. Each year this 70- 
85 voice choir performs a variety of accompanied and a cappella music for the 
college and community, and there is usually at least one performance with a 
professional orchestra. Music for Singers includes a highly diverse repertoire - 
masterworks, international and ethnic works, and recent additions to the choral 
repertory. Academic credit is awarded for participation each semester. 

The Chamber Singers is a relatively recent addition to the performing groups at 
Millsaps College. Membership is selected by audition from the Millsaps Singers. 
Membership in this 16-24 voice choir carries a performance scholarship in 
recognition of the travel and performance responsibilities of the ensemble. Recent 
tours have taken the Chamber Singers to San Antonio, Washington, D.C., 
Chicago, St. Louis, and Orlando. During the summer of 1998 the choir toured 
Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria. Academic credit is awarded follow- 
ing the second semester of participation. 

Membership in The Millsaps Wind Ensemble is open to all students who participated 
in a band in high school. Since the size of the ensemble is smaller than a full band, 
participation provides an intimate setting for practice and performance. Academic 
credit is awarded following the second semester of participation.

Music majors and minors can become eligible for membership in Mu Phi Epsilon, an 
international professional music fraternity. (Professional fraternities are orga-

Multi-Disciplinary Topics Courses Core 2-5 

Multi-disciplinary topics courses (core 2-5) use a thematic rather than survey approach. 
They take their focus 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 theme 
is chosen for each topics course, the themes 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 fresh- 
men as an alternative to the multi-disciplinary topics courses. It fulfills the require- 
ments 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. Courses 
meeting these requirements are designed to foster general abilities such as reasoning, 
quantitative thinking, valuing and decision-making. They also include writing. Labo- 
ratory 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 one of the following courses with a grade of C or higher, 
-IDS topics course with a fine arts focus 

-Art 2500, 25 10, 2520, 2530, 2540, 2550, 2560, 2580, 2590, or any art studio 
course 

-Music 1000, 1010, 1100, 2120 
-Theatre 1000, 1010, or 

3) demonstrating significant experience in creating art objects or demonstrating 
a prescribed level of competence in the performing arts by 
-completing four semesters of private study of voice or an instrument, or 
-completing four semester hours in studio art, or 

-completing four semester hours in Singers or a music ensemble, or 
-completing significant participation in four Players' productions. 

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. Demonstration of writing 
proficiency through this portfolio is a graduation requirement. Students will not be 



44 Curriculum 



eligible to enroll for Core 10 until they have satisfied this requirement. Transfer 
students must 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 to arrange for establishing their portfolio. 

Exemptions for Transfer Students 

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 
represented either by transfer credit or by course work at Millsaps in order to fulfill these 
graduation requirements. There must also be evidence of a significant amount of 
writing. Likewise, a student who completes a course in the natural sciences, mathemat- 
ics, or social and behavioral sciences which presumes the skill and knowledge of a core 
course may be exempt from that particular core requirement. Once a student has 
enrolled at Millsaps, he or she will not ordinarily be permitted to use transfer credits to 
meet core requirements. 

Residence Requirement 

To qualify for graduation from Millsaps, 32 of the last 40 semester hours of academic 
work must be done in residence as a degree-seeking student. An exception to this rule 
is the pre-engineering dual-degree program in which students may transfer back 32 
semester hours. 

Additional Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts Degree 

Proficiency at the intermediate level of an ancient or modern foreign language as 
demonstrated by satisfactory completion of a 2000 course taken at Millsaps, or the 
equivalent. (The number of hours required to complete this requirement will vary from 
0-12 depending upon language placement.) 

Additional Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree 

Students must complete Analytic Geometry and Calculus I. Students must complete 
16 semester hours in at least three disciplines chosen from the following list. At least 
8 semester hours must be laboratory courses. Students may select four courses from 
group I or three courses from group I and one from group II. 

Group I 

Biology any course that applied to the major 

Chemistry any lab course 

Geology any lab course 

Mathematics Analytic Geometry and Calculus II or higher 

Physics any lab course 

Computer Studies Computer Science I or higher 

Psychology Behavioral Neuroscience 

Group II 

Sociology- Anthropology Methods and Statistics 

Economics Econometrics and Applied Statistics 

Psychology Experimental Psychology II 

Additional Requirements for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies Degree 

Proficiency at the intermediate level of an ancient or modern 

foreign language 0-3 courses or 

Computer languages 3 courses 



45 

Additional Requirements for Bachelor of Business Administration Degree 

Students must complete, have prior credit for, or be exempt from College Algebra and 
Survey of Calculus or higher level mathematics and Computer Survival before taking 
sophomore-level course work in the Else School of Management. 

At the sophomore level, students take: 

Principles of Economics 4 sem. hours 

Principles of Financial Accounting 4 sem. hours 

Principles of Management Accounting 2 sem. hours 

Introduction to Management Information Systems ...2^em. hours 

At the junior level, students take: 

Fundamentals of Marketing 4 sem. hours 

Principles of Corporate Finance 4 sem. hours 

Introduction to Management 4 sem. hours 

Operations Management with Computing 4 sem. hours 

At the senior level, students take: 

The Legal Environment of Business 4 sem. hours 

Students must fulfill the requirements for an Accounting major or a Business 
Administration major. 

Majors: In addition to taking the prescribed work for the degree, a student must major 
in one of the following areas: accounting, art, business administration, biology, 
chemistry, classical studies, computer studies, economics, education, English, Euro- 
pean studies, French, geology, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physics, 
political science, psychology, religious studies, sociology-anthropology, Spanish, or 
theatre. For students pursuing the BLS degree, an interdisciplinary major is also 
possible with the consent of the appropriate departments. 

Majors in accounting and business administration are only available with the BBA 
degree. The European Studies major is only available with the B A or BLS degree. All 
other majors are available with the BA, BS, or BLS degree. 

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 are expected 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. 

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

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

A student must have a minimum of 1 6 semester hours in a department in order to qualify 
for a minor. A minimum of 8 semester hours applied toward the minor must be taken 
at Millsaps. Specific requirements for a particular minor can be found under the 
appropriate department of instruction. 

Areas of Concentration: In addition to the major and minor, a student may have an 
area of concentration within a particular discipline or among several disciplines. Areas 
of concentration within the major are not entered on the student transcript. Interdisci- 
plinary concentrations are treated like a minor and are entered on the transcript. 



46 Curriculum 



Double Counting 

Courses taken to satisfy core requirements may also be used to satisfy either major 
requirements or additional degree requirements, but not both. Departments, however, 
may restrict the number of core courses that will count toward the major. Students 
should check with the chair of each department. 

Comprehensive Examinations 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory comprehen- 
sive examination in the major field of study. This examination is given in the senior year 
and is intended to cover subject matter greater in scope than a single course or series 
of courses. The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to coordinate the class 
work with independent reading and thinking in such a way as to relate the knowledge 
acquired and give the student a general understanding of the field which could not be 
acquired from individual courses. 
The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part written and part 
oral, the division of time between the two to be at the discretion of the members of the 
department concerned. The oral examination will be conducted by a committee 
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 of the College. 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, including 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 minimun 
of 32 semester hours beyond those required for the first degree, and with these 
additional hour credits must also meet all of the requirements for both the second degree 
and the second major. 



47 



Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental 



Students interested in medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, or veteri- 
nary medicine are urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory 
Committee in designing a program that will fit particular needs, background, and 
interest. Members of the committee have a reference listing the requirements and 
admission policies of all American allopathic (M.D.) schools. Information is also 
available for other medical programs, as well as nursing, occupational therapy, 
physical therapy, medical technology, and related fields. 

Early in the fall semester of the senior year, the student should arrange an interview with 
the Pre-medical Advisory Committee, which will evaluate the student's qualifications 
for medical study. This evaluation will be sent to the professional schools in which the 
student is interested. 

It is the responsibility of the pre-medical and pre-dental students to consult the catalogs 
of the schools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirements. However, the 
following courses generally fulfill the entrance requirements of medical, dental, and 
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 



s 



48 Curriculum 



with the chair of the department of Religious Studies 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 prepara- 
tion for such professional education is an undergraduate education with breadth in the 
liberal arts. 



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 in 
designing a program of courses that will best fit particular needs, background, and 
interests. In their junior year, students interested in law school should consult with the 
pre-law adviser regarding the taking of the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and 
the law school application process. 



Pre-Social Work 

Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in social work should plan a 
broad liberal arts program with a major in one of the social sciences, preferably 
sociology-anthropology. Self and Society, Introduction to Anthropology, Comparative 
Family Systems and Social Stratification are essential. Other courses which are 
strongly recommended include Sociology of Human Interacting, Theories of Person- 
ality, 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 Licensure 

The Millsaps Teacher Education Program is accredited by the National Council for the 
Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). A student may pursue any degree 
offered by the College and qualify for teacher licensure provided all College major 
requirements are met and all teacher licensure requirements are met. The Teacher 
Education Programs offer licensure in Elementary Education, Secondary Education, 
and in select areas (K-12). In addition, Millsaps offers Supplemental Licensure in 
Special Education. 

The licensure program is fully integrated within the liberal arts curriculum of the 
College, and professors teach in the liberal arts core curriculum as well. The stream- 
lined and field-based program maximizes student time and potential. Students are 
encouraged to proceed through the licensure process in a sequential manner. Teacher 
licensure can be earned concurrently with any other major during the four year 
undergraduate experience. 



49 

There are certain entrance standards which must be met prior to being fully admitted 
in the Department of Education. Entrance requirements include: completion of the core 
curriculum (1-9), a minimum overall score of 21 on the American College Test (ACT) 
with no subscore lower than 1 8 upon entrance to college OR a minimum score of 860 
on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) upon entrance to college OR appropriate scores 
on the Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers (PRAXIS), and a minimum 
grade point average of 2.5. Students must complete all application procedures with the 
Chair of the Department of Education. To receive the College's recommendation for 
teacher licensure, the student must maintain a 2.5 GPA or above, score at the 
appropriate level on specified PRAXIS tests, and complete the Portfolio for Compre- 
hensive Examination with the Department of Education. 



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 Corpo- 
rate 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 four universities - Auburn, Columbia, 
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 



50 Curriculum 



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. 

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 require- 
ments, 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, metal- 
lurgical and mineral engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineer- 
ing mechanics, applied mathematics (BS only), applied physics, materials science, 
operations research, solid state science (MS only), chemical metallurgy, applied 
chemistry and materials science. 

Vanderbilt University offers bachelor of engineering degrees in chemical, civil, 
electrical and mechanical engineering. 

Washington University offers BS and MS programs in chemical, civil, electrical and 
mechanical engineering. Other programs include computer science, engineering and 
public policy, systems science and engineering, and business administration (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. 

(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. 



57 

(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 scholar- 
ships 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. 

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 



52 Curriculum 



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 honors 
colloquium. 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. 

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 partici- 
pating colleges spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Administra- 
tion of the American University in Washington. They earn 16 semester hours of credit 
toward graduation. Eight semester hours are earned in a Conference Seminar, in which 
high-ranking leaders of politics and government meet with students. Four semester 
hours are earned in a research course, which entails the writing of a paper by utilizing 
the sources available only at the nation's capital. An additional four semester hours are 
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 experi- 
ence 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. 



International Study 



Summer Program in London, Paris, Munich and Prague 

Millsaps College offers a six-week summer European Program based in London, Paris, 
Munich, and Prague with opportunities for other European travel and cultural experi- 
ences built into the program. Students may choose courses offered by the Else School 
of Management or courses offered by the Division of Arts and Letters or the Division 
of Sciences. The program features field trips and guest speakers integrated into the 
courses. Millsaps faculty design and teach the courses and select the experiences in

Summer Program in Costa Rica 

Designed for students interested in Spanish, this program features courses taught by 
Millsaps professors and includes an excellent balance of cultural activities, educational 
tours, and recreational travel. Classes are held at the Central American Institute for 
International Affairs (ICAI), an outstanding private academic institution located in the 
capital of the most stable, progressive country in Latin America. Because participating 
students live with carefully selected middle-class families, they have an exceptional 
opportunity to experience Hispanic culture first-hand as well as learn through on-site 
classes and field trips. The program is open to all students who have had at least a year 
of College Spanish or the equivalent. 

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. 

Millsaps Institute of Central American Studies (MICAS) 

MICAS administers a program of research and educational opportunity in Central 
America specifically focused on the undergraduate research experience. The Center's 
research projects and other educational opportunities are designed to help undergradu- 
ate students experience, through hands-on, research -based inquiry, the anthropology 
and archaeology, culture, environment, geology and marine science of Central America. 
MICAS provides an international opportunity for scholarly and cultural advancement 
to many constituencies including: undergraduate students, academic research groups, 
and the cultures and societies of Central America. Field studies and research in various 
disciplines are supported by the laboratory, analytical and data processing facilities on 
the Millsaps campus. International study and adult enrichment are offered. 

Other International Study 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 archaeo- 
logical 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 international study 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 International Study. 

Financial Aid 

Limited financial assistance is available for special programs, summer course work, 
and international studies. Consortium paperwork from the Financial Aid Office may be 
required.

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, Master of Liberal Studies Program 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 nontraditional 
adult undergraduates who wish to pursue a degree as full-time or part-time students. 
Students admitted to the Adult Degree Program are required to take Liberal Studies 
1010 in order to take advantage of the features of the Adult Degree Program, 
specifically the opportunity for independent directed study and credit for prior learning. 
Adult Degree students who are candidates for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree 
may major in one of the traditional disciplines or they may choose to design an 
interdisciplinary major. Adult Degree Program staff provide individualized academic 
advising and evaluation of previous college work. 

Community Enrichment Series 

Since 1972, Millsaps College has offered to the Greater Jackson community a variety 
of opportunities through the Community Enrichment Series. These are non-credit 
courses which require no prerequisites and no examinations. They cover a variety of 
special interest areas such as "Talking Your Way Through France," "Understanding 
the Stock Market," "Computer Basics," "Assertiveness Training," "Landscape De- 
sign," and "Pottery." Enrichment courses are available in the fall, winter and spring. 

Leadership Seminars in the Humanities 

Established in 1 987 and made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment 
for the Humanities, Leadership Seminars in the Humanities bring together Millsaps 
professors in the humanities with corporate and professional leaders in the community. 
These seminars, which carry graduate credit, offer an opportunity for serious engage- 
ment with intellectual issues affecting society and the individual. 

Advanced Placement Institutes 

Designed for teachers who teach Advanced Placement courses to high school students, 
Advanced Placement Institutes are offered each summer with instructors recom- 
mended by the College Board. Participants work with these master teachers to plan and 
prepare courses that will help students to become well prepared for college courses and 
to perform creditably on the Advanced Placement examinations. 

Principals' Institute 

The Millsaps College Principals' Institute provides personal and professional growth 
opportunities for principals and assistant principals of public, private, and parochial 
schools. The Institute is an effort to form partnerships between Millsaps College and 
the K-12 education community in order to strengthen education in Mississippi. 
Administered by the Millsaps Education Department in collaboration with the Missis- 
sippi Department of Education, the Institute awards professional development credits 
to administrators who participate in its programs.

Graduate Programs 



Master of Accountancy 

The Master of Accountancy degree 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 requirements to sit for the CPA examination 
in states which have adopted the AICPA's 150 credit hour requirement. The program 
involves a fifth year of study beyond the BBA degree. Students who plan to seek the 
MAcc degree should take the basic accounting major. For more details about the MAcc 
program, consult with a member of the accounting faculty or the Graduate Business 
Admissions office. 

Master of Business Administration 

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is offered in both daytime and 
evening classes. The Millsaps MBA program is particularly suited to students with a 
liberal arts background. A typical class includes men and women with a broad range 
of ages, and with backgrounds from engineering, the physical and social sciences, and 
the arts and the humanities, as well as from business. For further information about the 
MBA Program, see the Graduate Catalog or contact the Graduate Business Admissions 
office. 

Master of Liberal Studies 

The Master of Liberal Studies degree is an interdisciplinary academic program 
designed for mature students who are seeking greater understanding of our culture and 
heritage, including the social, scientific and political dimensions of society. This 
program is broad and diverse. The MLS is not a technical or professional degree. 
Graduates of accredited four-year colleges or universities may apply for admission to 
the MLS degree program. For further information, contact the Office of Adult Learning.

58 Administration of the Curriculum 



Grades, Honors, Class Standing 

The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written 
examination as explained in the class syllabus. 
A represents superior work. 
B represents above average achievement. 
C represents a satisfactory 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. 
W indicates a student has received approval to withdraw from the College. 
WP indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while passing. 
WF indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while failing. 
A grade of WF is treated as an F for purposes of computing grade point 
average. 
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. 
NC represents no credit in a non-graded course taken for credit. 
NR indicates no grade reported. 
AU represents audit. 

Grade Points 

Grades earned in any Millsaps course carry the following numerical values. 

A 4 
A- 3.67 
B+ 3.33 
B 3 
B- 2.67 
C+ 2.33 
C 2 
C- 1.67 
D+ 1.33 
D 1 
F 

Grade points earned for a course are determined by multiplying the numerical value of 
the grade by the number of semester hours that the course carries. A grade point average 
is determined by dividing the total number of grade points by the number of semester 
hours taken. 

Class Standing 

The following number of hours is required: 

For sophomore rating 28 semester hours 

For junior rating 60 semester hours 

For senior rating 92 semester hours 

A student's classification is determined at the beginning of the fall and spring semester. 



59 

Student Status 

Degree-seeking students taking 12 or more semester hours will be classified as full- 
time students. 

Degree-seeking students taking fewer than 12 semester hours will be classified as part- 
time students. 

A nondegree 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. Nondegree 
students observe the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and profi- 
ciency as regular students. 

Credit/No Credit Grade Option 

With the approval of the instructor, some courses may be taken for credit/no credit. 
Students must indicate their intention to take a course for credit/no credit at the time of 
registration. 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 and courses taken to meet additional degree requirements 
may not be taken for credit/no credit. Courses required for a student's major ordinarily 
may not be taken for credit/no credit. No more than eight semester hours graded credit/ 
no credit may be included in the 128 semester hours required for graduation. Courses 
taken for credit/no credit will not affect a student's grade point average. 

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. A course 
previously taken at Millsaps may also be repeated at another institution with the prior 
approval of the registrar in consultation with the appropriate department chair. When 
a course is repeated, 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 3.5 for the entire course shall be graduated Cum 
Laude; one whose grade point average is 3.7 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 64 semester hours 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, 
which need not be in the student's major, receives the designation "with honors" in that 
field at graduation. 

A degree-seeking student with junior standing and a 3.3 grade point average may apply 
to a faculty member for permission to undertake an honors project. In the fall semester 
of the junior year, the student submits an honors project agreement to the Honors 



60 Administration of the Curriculum 



Program director. Upon approval of the director, the student enrolls for the spring 
semester in a directed study course, Honors Research I. For the fall semester of the 
senior year, the student enrolls in Honors Research II, but completes the bulk of the 
work before that time in order to be able to defend the thesis to the student's defense 
committee in the fall. A letter grade is assigned for each of these two courses. For the 
spring semester of the senior year, the student enrolls in the Honors Colloquium, 
designed to bring together all students in the program for intellectual exchange. 

The honors candidate who successfully presents and defends the thesis, who completes 
the colloquium, who has an overall 3.3 grade average, and who has a 3.33 grade average 
in the three honors courses will graduate 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. 

Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

The Phi Beta Kappa chapter at Millsaps elects members from the graduating class each 
spring. To be considered for election to membership in Phi Beta Kappa, a student must 
meet the following criteria: 

1 . Completion of requirements for a BA, BS or BLS degree with a liberal arts or 
sciences major. (At least three-fourths of the work required for the degree must 
be in the liberal arts and sciences.) 

2. A minimum of one-half of the work required for graduation completed at 
Millsaps. 

3. One course in mathematics, calculus or above, and one course in a foreign 
language at the intermediate level or above. 

4. A minimum grade point average of 3.7 based on seven or more semesters. 
(Grades earned in applied or professional work are not counted in computing 
GPA for the purpose of election to Phi Beta Kappa.) 

Transfer students must meet the required grade point average both on work done at 
Millsaps and on their college work as a whole. No more than 10 percent of the liberal 
arts and science graduates may be elected to membership from a graduating class. 

Election to Beta Gamma Sigma 

Beta Gamma Sigma is the national honor society for business programs accredited by 
the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business-The International Associa- 
tion for Management Education. Students are elected each spring. To be considered 
for membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, an undergraduate must: 

1 . pursue the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, 

2. be of high moral character, 

3. be in the upper seven percent of the junior class or upper ten percent 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 
percent of the BBA graduates may be elected to membership from a graduating class. 

Dean's Scholars 

At the end of the fall and spring semester, the Dean' s Scholars List is issued and consists 
of those students who for that semester: 

(a) earned at least 12 semester hours. 

(b) earned a grade point average of at least 3.5 for that semester. 



67 

(c) earned grades of C or higher in each course. 

(d) met the standard, in the judgment of the Dean of the College, of being a good 
citizen of the College community. 

President's Scholars 

At the end of the fall and spring semester, the President's Scholars List is issued and 
consists of those students who for that semester: 

(a) earned at least 12 semester hours. 

(b) earned a grade point average of 3.85 for that semester. 

(c) earned grades of C or higher in each course. 

(d) met the standard, in the judgment of the Dean of the College, of being a good 
citizen of the College community. 

Course Load 

Sixteen semester hours per semester is considered the normal load for full-time 
students. In order to be classified as a full-time student, one must take no fewer than 12 
semester hours. 

Students are not encouraged to register for more than 1 8 hours in a semester unless they 
have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0. No student may register for more than 
20 hours in a semester without a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 and the 
permission of the Dean of the College. A student will ordinarily not be permitted to 
register for more than 22 hours in a semester. 

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. 

A student cannot change classes, drop classes or take up new classes except by the 
consent of the faculty adviser or the Dean. If courses are dropped prior to the last day 
to drop courses without penalty, then the dropped courses will not appear on the 
student's record. Courses dropped after this date are recorded as WP (withdrawn 
passing) or WF (withdrawn failing). There is a published date, following mid-term 
grades, after which it is no longer possible to drop a course without the approval of the 
Dean of the College. Students who drop a course without securing the required 
approvals will receive an F. 

Withdrawal 

In order to withdraw from the College within any term, an undergraduate student 
(except for ADP and Nondegree) must meet with the Director of Retention and Student 
Success for an exit interview and to obtain a withdrawal form. ADP, Nondegree, and 
MLS students must meet with the Dean of Adult Learning. MBA and MAcc students 
must meet with the Assistant Dean of the Else School of Management. No refund will 
be considered unless the withdrawal form with appropriate signatures is completed 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 seven days of the semester will 
receive all W grades. Individual course drops that adjust a student's schedule are purged 
from the student's schedule and are not recorded on the academic record. 



62 Administration of the Curriculum 



A student who withdraws with permission after the first seven days, but before mid- 
semester will have grades 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. Students who withdraw for medical reasons may petition for W 
grades in all courses by submitting appropriate medical documentation with the 
withdrawal form. 

Students should complete all course withdrawals by mid-semester. The mid-semester 
deadline for completing course withdrawals is published in the college catalog. 

Students who wish to withdraw from one or more courses after the mid-semester 
deadline must file a written petition with the Dean of the College. Petitions will not be 
approved unless students can show evidence that they are in extraordinary situations 
which warrant exceptions to the general policy of the College. 

Enforced withdrawal may result from habitual delinquency in class, or any other 
circumstance which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose of the class. 

The College reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student. In such a case, 
the pro rata portion of tuition will be returned, except that students withdrawing under 
discipline forfeit the right to a refund. 

No student who withdraws is entitled to a grade report or to a transcript of credits until 
all accounts are settled in the Business Office. 

Academic 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 12 semester hours and has 
an acceptable cumulative average. 

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 28 semester hours have been attempted, or 

1.8 cumulative grade point average when more than 28 semester hours and less than 60 
semester hours have been attempted, or 

2.0 cumulative grade point average when greater than 60 semester hours 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 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. 



63 

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 of the College. 

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 reinstate- 
ment 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. 

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 require- 
ments by petition to the Dean. 



64 Administration of the Curriculum 



Honor Code 

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. Through their Honor Code, members of the 
Millsaps community, faculty and students, affirm their adherence to these basic ethical 
principles. 

An Honor Code is not simply a set of rules and procedures governing students' 
academic conduct. It is an opportunity to put personal responsibility and integrity into 
action. When students agree to abide by the Honor Code, they liberate themselves to 
pursue their academic goals in an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect. 

The success of the code depends upon the support of each member of the community. 
Students and faculty alike commit themselves in their work to the principles of 
academic honesty. When they become aware of infractions, both students and faculty 
are obligated to report them to the Honor Council which is responsible for enforcement. 

The Millsaps Honor Code was adopted by the student body and approved by the faculty 
and Board of Trustees in 1994. 

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 
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. 



65 

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 and/or multiple infractions of College regulations may be 
subject to disciplinary action including: social probation, disciplinary probation, 
disciplinary suspension or disciplinary expulsion. The Judicial Council may enact 
social probation or disciplinary probation and may forward a recommendation for 
disciplinary suspension or disciplinary expulsion to the President. The President, Vice 
President for Enrollment and Student Affairs or the Dean of Students may enact any of 
these sanctions when warranted. 

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 organizxxxation 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. 



66 Administration of the Curriculum 



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 or 
expulsion. When a student is placed on disciplinary probation, the student and his/her 
parents are asked to have a conference with the Vice President for Enrollment and 
Student Affairs and/or the Dean of Students. 

Disciplinary Suspension and Disciplinary Expulsion 

Unfortunately there are times when a student's conduct is deemed to require the most 
serious penalty to be exacted by officials of the College. This action may result from 
a series of less severe actions or from a particularly egregious behavior as determined 
by the College officials. 

Disciplinary suspension is a decision to temporarily discharge a student. The student 
will receive grades of W for the semester and official notation will be made on the 
transcript. 

Disciplinary expulsion is a decision to permanently discharge a student. The student 
will receive failing grades for the semester and official notation will be made on the 
transcript. 

When student behavior warrants either disciplinary suspension or disciplinary expul- 
sion, the student's financial status will be treated as if the student withdrew (see policy 
under Financial Regulations section).

become more deliberate in their thinking about the profession of teaching and the 
variety of opportunities the profession offers for challenge and service. The faculty 
in the Department of Education pay particular attention to the developmental needs 
of prospective teachers as they matriculate through the licensure program. Care- 
fully crafted and well supervised field experiences and internships are distinctive 
features of Millsaps College teacher education. The importance of the liberal arts 
in education, the need for reflection on teaching and professional practice, and the 
belief that the competent teacher education graduate is one who can think, act, and 
especially teach in a morally responsible manner are integrated throughout the 
Millsaps College Teacher Education Program. Teacher licensure can be earned 
concurrently with any other major or degree during the four year undergraduate 
experience. For a specific course of study leading to teacher licensure at the 
elementary or secondary level, please contact the Department of Education. 

There are certain entrance standards which must be met prior to achieving full

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 64 
semester hours must be nonbusiness courses. Up to 9 semester hours of economics 
courses may be considered as nonbusiness courses. 

Foundation Prerequisites: Students pursuing the BBA should complete College 
Algebra, Survey of Calculus (or Precalculus followed by Analytical Geometry and 
Calculus I) during their freshman year. College Algebra and Survey of Calculus 
(or higher level mathematics) and sophomore-level BBA core courses will be 
completed before commencing junior-level courses. Elementary Statistics should be 
completed prior to the fall semester of the junior year. College Algebra and Survey 
of Calculus (Precalculus, Analytical Geometry and Calculus I) satisfy the Core 8 and 
9 requirements respectively. Sophomore-level BBA core courses will be completed 
before commencing junior-level BBA courses. 

Curriculum: Nine core courses, two of which are one half semester courses, for a total 
of 32 semester hours, 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 12 semester hours (typically three courses) of Else School electives which totals 
48 semester hours. Students planning to complete degree requirements and leave the 
College at the end of a fall semester must take Management 4000, Business Strategy, 
in the spring of the preceding academic year. The accounting major includes the 
BBA core courses and 32 additional semester hours (8 courses) for a total of 64 
semester hours. Courses should be taken in the sequence prescribed. The BBA core 
courses are: 

Sophomore Year 

Fall Term: Principles of Economics (4 sem. hours)

Spring Term: Principles of Managerial Accounting (2 sem. hours) 

Introduction to Management Information Systems (2 sem. hours)

Principles of Corporate Finance (4 sem. hours) 

Spring Term: Operations Management with Computing (4 sem. hours)

Senior Year 

Fall Term: Legal Environment of Business (4 sem. hours) 

Requirements for the Business Administration Major: A minimum of 48 semester 
hours are required to earn the BBA degree in business administration. In addition to 
the BBA core, students pursuing a major in business administration must complete 



128 Departments of Instruction 



Business Strategy, to be taken in the senior year, and three Else School elective 
courses. 

Requirements for the Accounting Major: Students pursuing the BBA with a major 
in accounting must complete a minimum of 64 semester hours, including the BBA 
core, Intermediate Accounting I and II, Cost Accounting, Federal Taxation of 
Income, Advanced Financial Accounting, Auditing, Business Law, and Senior 
Seminar in Accounting. 

Requirements for the Minor in Business Administration: A student may elect a 
minor in business administration by completing Principles of Economics, Principles 
of Financial Accounting, Principles of Management Accounting, Introduction to 
Management, and any other one of the following Else School courses: Principles of 
Corporate Finance, Fundamentals of Marketing, or Operations Management with 
Computing. This is a total of 18 semester hours for the minor in business 
administration. Minors in accounting are not offered. 

Transfer Credit: Students may transfer from other schools and pursue the BBA at the 
Else School, but at least fifty percent of the BBA course work must be taken at 
Millsaps. For the administration major, this means at least 24 semester hours of 
BBA course work must be completed at Millsaps. For the accounting major, it means 
32 semester hours of BBA course work must be completed at Millsaps. Transfer 
students may receive credit for Principles of Accounting and Principles of Economics 
if they passed with a grade of "C" or better at their previous institution six hours of 
Principles of Accounting and Principles of Economics. 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 (Mgmt 4000) must be taken at 
Millsaps; and for accounting majors, at least 12 semester hours in accounting (3 
courses) required in the major and must be taken at Millsaps. Ordinarily, course 
work taken more than six years prior to admission or readmission to the Else School 
and academic work in which the student received a grade below "C" must be 
repeated. The Academic Affairs Committee of the Else School will evaluate 
extenuating circumstances for exceptions to these standards. 

Millsaps students who wish to take BBA courses at the 3000 level or above at an 
institution other than Millsaps must do so at an AACSB accredited institution and 
have approval from the Dean of the Else School of Management. All students are 
required to complete at least fifty percent of their BBA course work at Millsaps. 

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/nonprofit sector. The MAcc fulfills the educational requirements to 
sit for the C.P.A. examination in states which have adopted the AICPA's 150 credit 
hour requirement. In general, the MAcc program involves a fifth year of study beyond 
the accounting major. Students who plan to seek the MAcc degree should pursue 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. Though this is representative of a BBA student's four-year 
course of study, there are opportunities for individual variations including second 
majors and minors depending upon the student's particular interests. By the end of 
their sophomore year, BBA students will complete Core 1 through 9 as well as the 
math and computer courses which are the foundations of the BBA curriculum. It 
should be noted that a BBA student may choose to take more than the minimum of 48 
semester hours of Else School courses but at least 64 semester hours must be 
nonbusiness courses
