Prospective Students 




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 stu- 
dents (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 in the late 1800's 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), Dr. Edward McDaniel Collins, Jr. (1970-1978), and Dr. 
George Marion Harmon (1978-2000). Dr. Frances Lucas was named president in 2000. 

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 respon- 
sible citizenship and well-balanced lives, Millsaps offers professional and pre-professional train- 
ing coupled with cultural and disciplinary studies. Students are selected on the basis of their abili- 
ty to think, desire to learn, good moral character, and intellectual maturity. The primary consid- 
eration for admission is the ability to complete 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 educa- 
tional and cultural offerings of Mississippi's capital city of Jackson. 

Research facilities available to students include the Mississippi Department of Archives 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, Mississippi Opera Association, and musical, dramatic, 
and sporting events held at the City Auditorium and the Mississippi Coliseum. 

Millsaps is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges 
and Schools to award the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, 
Bachelor of Science, Master of Accountancy, and Master of Business Administration. The 
College is approved by the American Association of University Women and the University 
Senate of the United Methodist Church. The Business programs offered by the Else School of 
Management are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The 
Department of Chemistry is accredited by the American Chemical Society and the Department 

10 



:>i 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 Senior Vice President and 
Dean of the College.

services are also available. The library is a member of the SOLINET/OCLC network, the 
\ssociated Colleges of the South, Central Mississippi Library Council, and other organizations.

arship and whose credentials are postmarked by February 1. Students applying under the Regular

ivailabie basis. If you are applying after this date, please contact the Millsaps Office of

may apply by following the same procedures as outlined for first-time freshman applicants. At

work at a junior college and have it apply toward a degree from Millsaps.

13 



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

5. Grades earned at another institution will ordinarily be recorded as they are on the other insti- 
tution's transcript. Quality points earned at another institution will be recorded based upon the 
grading scale used by the Millsaps catalog. An overall grade point index of 2.0 is required for 
graduation. Transfer students must also have a minimum grade point index of 2.0 on their 
Millsaps work. 

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

i 

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

Nondegree Student Admission 

A nondegree student is one who is taking a course or courses but who is not enrolled in a degree 
program. Applicants should submit the Nondegree Student Application Form along with the 
application fee to the Office of Adult Learning. Transcripts of all academic work attempted must 
be provided to the Office of Adult Learning within two weeks of enrollment. The following

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

International Student Admission 

Millsaps College welcomes students from all over the world and will evaluate applicants based on 
the educational system from which they come. International students should submit their admis- 
sion credentials well in advance of the semester in which they expect to enroll to allow time for 
official documents to be received through international mail systems. Required documents for 
international applicants include the following: 

1. Completed admission forms. 

2. Official or certified true copies of transcripts from each secondary and post-secondary school 
attended. These should include a record of subjects taken and marks earned for each year of 
study. Documents must have the official signature and seal of a school official. A certified English 

14 



;ranslation must accompany all documents not in English. For placement purposes, course 
descriptions may be requested from international transfer students.

3een completed. 

L Two letters of recommendation. 

5. TOEFL results for non-native English speakers. 

5. Statement of Financial Resources. 

7. The application fee. 

International students are not required to submit SAT or ACT test scores. 

Leaves of Absence and Readmission 

Students may petition for a Leave of Absence for a future semester. A Leave of Absence cannot 
be granted in a semester in which any classes have been attended. Before requesting a Leave of 
Absence from the College, students must meet with the Director of Retention and Student 
Success (undergraduate), Dean of Adult Learning (Nondegree), or the Assistant Dean of the Else 
School of Management (M.B.A. or M.Acc.) 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 circum- 
stances a petition may be filed for an extension. 

Students who leave the College for one semester or longer may apply for readmission by com- 
pleting the appropriate application and presenting transcripts for all academic work attempted 
while away from the College. Students on approved leaves of absence are not required to apply 
for readmission. Those who are absent for more than four years may be required to meet gradua- 
tion 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. 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 tests 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 and a score of 5, 6, or 7 on a higher-level 
IB exam is required in order to receive academic credit. For information concerning scores neces- 
sary to attain credit for any AP examination, or for other exams such as IB or CLEP, students 
should consult with the registrar or Senior Vice President and Dean of the College. International 
students should contact the Office of International Initiatives with any questions about their

Additionally, students enrolled in the Gateway Program 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 Gateway students. 

Orientation and Advisement 

Welcome Weekend and the New Student Seminar (Foundations) are Millsaps programs designed 
to ease the transition to college life. Welcome Weekend occurs three days before classes start. It 
begins with Move-In and concludes with class registration. Welcome Weekend is filled with edu- 
cational and social activities that prepare the new Millsaps student for life on campus. 

The New Student Seminar (Foundations) 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, staff, 
and upper-class students, provides the new student a forum for discussion of key issues and concerns. 

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 manage- 
ment, 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 profes- 
sionals or treatment programs off campus will be made when appropriate. 

Career Services 

Career Services offers a wide variety of services and programs for students and alumni in the area 
of academic and career development. These services assist students in achieving their academic 
goals, meeting the expectations set forth by the college, and planning for life after graduation. 
Career services include: 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 Services staff. Other options include a computerized career-planning program for 
individuals seeking a more comprehensive search that matches their interests, talents, and values j 
with potential careers. 

The internship program is an excellent opportunity for students to explore 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. 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 education, the arts, 
government, health care, nonprofit, business, industry, and finance. New internship positions 
may also be developed with the assistance of the Career Services staff. 

Other programs and services that assist students in exploring potential careers include: informa- 
tional interviews, student employment, and community volunteer/service opportunities. 
Workshops and seminars are held throughout the year to help students further explore their 
career options and to prepare for and enter the world of work. 

16 



Graduate and professional school advisement is also available. The Career Resource Library 
offers graduate school guides and references, CD ROM's, 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 Services. 

Seniors and alumni can access full-time positions which are listed in the Career Resource Library. 
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 provides 
valuable information and contacts for those preparing for their job search. 

Resident Living 

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 res- 
idence life program is administered by a team of professionals including the Vice President and 
Dean of Students, Director of Residence Life, Assistant Directors of Residence Life, and 
Resident Assistants. 

Housing assignments for new students are made by the Residence Life professional staff in late 
July. Housing assignments are determined by several factors, including roommate preference and 
the items listed on the housing preference sheet. For the best housing and roommate matching 
possible, it is imperative that the student fill out the housing preference sheet him/herself. 

Millsaps is a residential college based upon the belief that a significant amount of learning and 
growth takes place outside 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 the Jackson vicinity. Freshmen and sophomore students are not 
allowed to live in a fraternity house during the academic year. 

Residence hall rooms are designed to house two students each. Students should send in their 
completed housing forms as early in the admissions process as possible. 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 upper-class students are made in the spring. The process is arranged through 
Residence Life. Students should contact their RA for more information. 

Current students who have become academically ineligible before the beginning of fall semester, 
if readmitted, will be put on a waiting list for room assignments. 

Residence halls will be closed for Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks. Dates and times of 
hall closings and openings are listed on the housing contract. Students may also obtain this 
information by calling Student Affairs at (601) 974-1200. 

Wesson Health Services 

Millsaps College offers a comprehensive health care program for its students. This program is 
administered through the College nurse, who works with the school physicians to provide health 
and emergency care for students. The school physicians hold clinic on campus during the week. 
Students should contact the College nurse (601) 974-1207 for appointments and for more infor- 
mation regarding the various services provided.

Student Records 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 guarantees Millsaps students the right to 
review, inspect, and challenge the accuracy of information kept in a cumulative file by the institu- 
tion. 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 adviser; 

(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, 
email address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in offi- 
cially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, photo- 
graph, 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 and the Office of PubHc Relations in writing prior to the end of the first day of classes; 

(c) violations of drug and alcohol policies may be disclosed to parents of students who are under 
the age of 21; 

(d) disciplinary proceedings of violent crimes or nonforcible sex offenses may be disclosed to the 
victims of the crime regardless of the outcome of the proceedings. They may also be disclosed to 
anyone where the accused was found to have violated the college's rules or policies; 

(e) to a court if a parent or student has initiated legal action against the college or if the college 
has begun a legal action against a parent of a student; 

(f) to the Mississippi Office of Student Financial Aid if a student's legal residence is in the state of 
Mississippi. 

If students would like their parents to have access to their records, they must give written con- 
sent in the appropriate office: for academic records, the Office of Records; for financial records, 
the Business Office; for disciplinary records, the Office of Student Affairs. This consent must be 
renewed at the beginning of each academic year.

Financial Regulations 

Payments - All charges for a semester are due and payable two weeks prior to the first day of

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 

Cashing Personal Checks - Personal checks for a maximum of $100 may be cashed in the

identification card. 

Returned Checks - A charge of $30 will be made for each returned check. 

Refunds - Room rent cannot be refunded after the semester has begun. Unused amounts paid in 
advance for board are refundable. A student who withdraws with good reason from a course 
or courses will have seven days including the date of the first meeting of classes to receive a 
refund of 80 percent of tuition and fees; within two weeks, 60 percent; within three weeks, 
40 percent; and within four weeks, 20 percent. If a student remains in college as long as four 
weeks, no refund will be made except for board. Students receiving federal financial aid will 
be subject to the federal guidelines with respect to withdrawal. Examples of the application 
of the refund policy are available in the Business Office. A student may obtain a refund of 
any overpayment on his or her account by making a request in the Business Office. 

The date of withdrawal from which all claims to reductions and refunds will be referred is 
the date on which the registrar is officially notified by the student of the intention to 
withdraw. (See regulations relative to withdrawals.)

case, the pro rata portion of tuition will be returned. Students withdrawing or removed 
under disciplinary action forfeit the right to a refund.

College meal plan.

interest that accrues while the student is in school. The program is open to students 
who may not qualify fully or partially for the subsidized loan program. The student 
borrower does not have to show financial need for this loan. Independent students may 
have a higher loan limit if they show the eligibility for supplemental loan funds.

tional funds for educational expenses. These loans may be obtained from the Office of

port or residency card, the student may be eligible for both merit-based scholarships and need- 
based financial aid (refer to the previous section). If the student is not an American citizen or

cial aid. Decisions for merit-based scholarship awards are made on the basis of information pre-

Student Life 

Campus Ministry 

Religious life at Millsaps centers around the churches, synagogues, and other faith communities 
of the city of Jackson as well as the campus ministry program coordinated through the Campus 
Ministry Team, the Office of the Chaplain and denominational groups on campus. Churches, 
temples, and mosques 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 including the New York Seminar 
and the Delta immersion experience; faculty-student-staff prograrhs addressing issues on campus 
and in the larger society; fellowship experiences; Bible studies; mentoring programs in neighbor- 
ing schools; projects in the community working with disadvantaged populations; chapel and spe- 
cial 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 
citywide effort to rehabilitate a 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 pro- 
gram 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, Baptist Student 
Union, Millsaps Christian Fellowship, Orthodox 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. In addition to the Chaplain, the college 
is fortunate to have a Catholic Campus Minister who works with students at Millsaps, Belhaven, 
and University Medical Center; persons from local congregations also working with the denomi- 
national groups on campus and staff members from the Athletic Department work with the 
Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

The Office of the Chaplain serves as a liaison with churches, with The Mississippi Conference of 
The United Methodist Church, and with other denominations. Furthermore, a working relation- 
ship 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 continui?ng slate of speakers during the academic year. The objective of 
the series is to provide information and stimulate interest in current issues, to explore historical 
events, and to present differing perspectives on controversial subjects. Faculty members, local 
authorities, and national experts are invited to present their thoughts on a variety of literary, cul- 
tural, scientific, political, religious, and historical topics. 

In addition to the Forum Series, the Public Events Committee sponsors special events through- 
out 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. 

32 



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

Athletics 

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

Competitive sports conducted in an atmosphere of good sportsmanship and fair play can make a 
significant contribution to the complete physical, emotional, moral, and mental development of 
the well-rounded individual. They are thus an integral part of the educational process. Every 
attempt is made to provide a sports -for- all program. 

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, soccer, cross country, volleyball, golf, and Softball. 

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. 
Intramurals 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. Recent 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, fac- 
ulty, and staff. 



Publications 

The Purple & White, the official student newspaper of the College, is edited, managed, and 
written by students. The P6-W provides coverage of Millsaps events as well as serving as a 
campus forum.

campus life. Bobashela is an Indian name for good friend.

College. Membership is selected by audition from the Millsaps Singers. Membership in this

enjoyed a tour throughout Spain and Portugal. Academic credit is awarded following the

international professional music fraternity. (Professional fraternities are organized to

Curriculum 
Requirements for Degrees 

Requirements for All Degrees 

A total of 128 semester hours is required for the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and 
Bachelor of Business Administration degrees. Of this total, at least 120 semester hours must be 
taken for a letter grade. 

Core Requirements for All Degrees 

All Millsaps students must complete ten core courses specifically designed to develop the general 
abilities of a liberally educated person. 

Core 1: Introduction to Liberal Studies 4 sem. hours 

Core 2: Multi-disciphnary Topics in the Ancient World 4 sem. hours 

Core 3: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Pre-modern World 4 sem. hours 

Core 4: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Modern World 4 sem. hours 

Core 5: Multi-disciplinary Topics in the Contemporary World 4 sem. hours 

Core 6: Topics in Social and Behavioral Science 4 sem. hours 

Core 7: Topics in Natural Science with Laboratory 4 sem. hours 

Core 8: Topics in Mathematics 4 sem. hours 

Core 9: Topics in Mathematics, Natural Science, or Computer Science 4 sem. hours 

Core 10: Reflections on Liberal Studies 4 sem. hours 

Courses that satisfy core requirements must be selected from an approved list published each 
semester with the class schedule. 

All incoming students are required to complete Introduction to Liberal Studies in the first year. 
Reflections on Liberal Studies must be completed during the senior year. All other core courses 
should be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Transfer students and adult students who 
cannot meet this schedule should try to complete their core requirements as early in their college 
careers as possible. 

Liberal Arts Abilities 

The Millsaps liberal arts education is intended to help develop these abilities: 

Reasoning - the ability to think logically and reflectively, to analyze critically and constructively 

Communication - the ability to express one's thoughts and feelings coherently and persuasively 
through written and oral communication and to work effectively in collaboration with others 

(Quantitative Thinking - the ability to understand, interpret, and use numerical and scientific data 
and the technology of the modern world 

Historical Consciousness - the ability to understand the achievements, problems, and challenges of 
the present with perspectives gained from a study of the past 

Aesthetic Judgement - the ability to understand and appreciate creative responses to the world 
and to develop one's own modes of creative expression 

Global and Multi-Cultural Awareness - the ability to understand and appreciate a variety of 
social and cultural perspectives 

48 



Valuing and Decision-Making - the ability to understand and appreciate differing moral view- 
points; to make carefully considered, well-reasoned decisions; and to make a mature assessment 
pf one's own abilities, beliefs, and values 

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 dis- 
ciplinary focuses. 

The Heritage Program 

Heritage is a four-course, multi-disciplinary humanities program designed for freshmen as an 
alternative to the multi-disciplinary topics courses. It fulfills the requirements for core 2-5 and 
fine arts. 

Topics Courses Core 6-9 

Topics courses in the social and behavioral sciences, natural sciences, mathematics, and computer 
science (core 6-9) may be multi-disciplinary, but need not be. Courses meeting these require- 
ments are designed to foster general abilities such as reasoning, quantitative thinking, valuing, and 
decision making. They also include writing. Laboratory science courses introduce students to sci- 
entific 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: 

completing the Heritage curriculum, or 

completing one of the following courses: 

-IDS topics course with a fine arts focus 

-Art 2500, 2510, 2520, 2530, 2540, 2550, 2560, 2580, 2590, or any art studio course 

-Music 1000, 1010, 1100, or 2120 

-Theatre 1000, or 1010, or 

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 4 semester hours in studio art, or 

-completing 4 semester hours in Singers or a music ensemble, or 

-completing significant participation in four Players' productions. 

49 



Writing Proficiency Portfolio 

During their first two years at Millsaps, all students complete a Writing Proficiency Portfolio 
consisting of seven papers. At the end of the second year, portfolios are assessed to determine 
writing proficiency status. Demonstration of writing proficiency through this portfolio is a grad- 
uation requirement. If a student's writing is not found to be proficient, a student may be required 
to turn in an additional paper or revise a paper previously submitted to the portfolio. 
Traditional students who do not complete the Writing Proficiancy Portfolio by their junior year 
will not be permitted to register for classes until the requisite papers have been submitted for 
assessment. Transfer and adult students must also submit seven papers written at Millsaps, 
although the sequence for submission may vary according to the student's schedule of classes. 
All students begin their Writing Proficiency Portfolio in their Introduction to Liberal Studies 
class. A paper will also be submitted to the Portfolio from Core 3 or Heritage classes. Students 
are responsible for the submission of the remaining 2 or 3 papers. 
For more information, consult the Writing Program Web page 
http://www.millsaps.edu/dean/writing or visit the Writing Program Office in John Stone Hall. 

Exemptions for Transfer Students 

With the approval of the Core Council, transfer students may substitute courses in history, litera- 
ture, philosophy, or religion to meet from one to three of the core 2, 3, 4, or 5 requirements. 
Transfer students are required to take at least one core 2-5 course at Millsaps. 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 sci- 
ences, mathematics, 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 require- 
ments. 

64 Hour Policy 

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

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 the equivalent of 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 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 four courses 
(ordinarily 16 semester hours) in at least three disciplines chosen from the following list. At least 
two courses 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 applies to the major

Majors: A major at Millsaps is a specialized course of study required of all students, offering the 
opportunity to focus in depth on a particular discipline. It usually consists of 32 to 48 hours of 
coursework specified by a particular department, in addition to 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 Science, Economics, Education, 
English, European Studies, French, Geology, German, History, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, 
Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology-Anthropology, Spanish, or 
Theatre. 

Majors in Accounting and Business Administration are only available with the B.B.A. degree. 
The European Studies major is only available with the B.A. degree. All other majors are available 
with the B.A. or B.S. degree. 

Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate department of instruc- 
tion. 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. 



51 



A student may have more than one major by completing all of the requirements in the depart- 
ments 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 16 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 con- 
centration within a particular discipline or among several disciplines. Areas of concentration 
within the major are not entered on the student transcript. Interdisciplinary concentrations are 
treated like a minor and are entered on the transcript. 

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 comprehensive examina- 
tion 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 think- 
ing in such a way as to relate the knowledge acquired and give the student a general understand- 
ing 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 con- 
cerned. 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. The oral exam will ordinarily be given before December 
1 in the fall semester and within the time period specified by the college in the spring semester. 
The written portion of the exam usually precedes the oral exam. 

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 semes- 
ter of graduation. The examination may be given in the fall semester for students who meet the 
other requirements and who will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring semester or 
who are pursuing a double major. 

The time of the comprehensive examination in the spring semester is published in the college cal- 
endar. Comprehensive examinations will not be given at any other time except by permission of 
the dean. Those who fail a comprehensive examination may have an opportunity to take another 
examination after the lapse of two months. Additional examinations may be taken at the discre- 
tion of the chairman of the student's major department with the consent of the dean of the college. 



52 



Srade Point Index Required 

i^n overall grade point index of 2.00 is required for graduation. Transfer students must have a 
hinimum grade point index of 2.00 on their Millsaps work. The grade point index is calculated 
n the total number of courses attempted, including courses repeated for a better grade. (See 
action on Grades, Honors, and Class Standing.) 

Application for a Degree 

£ach student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written application for the 
legree by November 1 of the academic year of graduation. This date also applies to students who 
jilan to complete their work in the summer session. Forms for degree applications are available 
rom the Office of Records. 

Requirements for a Second Degree 

n order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College, a student must have a minimum of 32 
emester hours beyond those required for the first degree and must meet all of the requirements 
or both the second degree and the additional major. 

Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental 

tudents interested in medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, or veterinary medi- 
ine are urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory Committee in designing a 
urogram that will fit particular needs, backgrounds, and interests. Members of the committee 
lave references listing the requirements and admission policies of all American allopathic schools 
M.D.) and most related schools. Information is also available for other medical programs, as well 
.s nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, medical technology, and related fields. 

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

t is the responsibility of the pre-medical and pre-dental students to consult the catalogs of the 
chools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirements. However, the following 
;ourses 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. 
Many medically-related programs have more specific requirements. 

Vlillsaps College and the majority of medical and dental schools strongly recommend that the 
itudent obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of interest. It is not required that this degree be 
n a science, and students are encouraged to achieve a broad background in the humanities and 
;ocial 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 
ilso requires writing an essay. 

rhese requirements are further addressed in meetings of pre-med students held each semester, 
rhe pre-medical honorary. Alpha Epsilon Delta, also conducts meetings of interest to students in 
ill health-related curricula. Interested students should avail themselves of these opportunities 
:hroughout their studies. 

53 



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 th 
Church. Undergraduate pre-seminary work at Millsaps should include significant work in the 
study of religion and philosophy and in the social and behavioral sciences. No one major is best 
Students considering a ministerial career should consult with the chair of the department of 
Rehgious 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 preparation for such professional education is an undergraduate education 
with breadth in the liberal arts. Pre-ministerial students may also want to consider the 
Concentration in Christian Education (listed under Interdisciplinary Programs). 

Pre-law 

No particular major or sequence of courses is necessary for students planning to go to law 
school. Indeed, there is no ideal pre-law program applicable to all students. Instead, a student 
planning to attend law school should strive to attain and master the intellectual qualities that 
make one successful in the study of law: (1) the ability to think and analyze critically, and (2) th( 
ability to write well. 

Different students will learn, practice, and hone these qualities in different majors and in differei 
courses across the disciplines here at Millsaps. To build the most appropriate program of study, 
student planning for law school should consult her or his major adviser, faculty that have been 
influential in her or his academic study thus far, the Career Center, and the pre-law adviser. 

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) should be taken in the spring semester of the junior on 
the fall semester of the senior year. During the junior year, the student interested in law school 
should consult with the pre-law adviser to begin preparations for the LSAT and the law school 
admission process. 

Pre-social work 

Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in social work should plan a program 
with a major in one of the social sciences, preferably sociology-anthropology. Introduction to 
Sociology, Introduction to Anthropology, Marriage and Family, and Social Stratification are 
essential. Other courses which are strongly recommended include Sociology of Human 
Interaction, Theories of Personality, and Social Psychology. Internships can provide valuable 
practical experience with community social welfare agencies. Students are urged to consult with 
their faculty advisors to plan a schedule. 

Teacher Licensure 

The Millsaps College Teacher Preparation Program is accredited by the National Council for th< 
Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), accredited and approved by the Mississippi 

54 



*epartment of Education. The program allows undergraduates to explore teaching as a career 
ption within the regular framework of a Millsaps B.A. or B.S. degree, and to become fully pre-

jiay major in Elementary Education and receive licensure at the elementary school level, 
tudents may also minor in Education. Supplemental Licensure is available in Mild/Moderate 
)isability and Gifted. 

he licensure program, which is fully integrated within the liberal arts curriculum of the College, 
streamlined and field-based to maximize student time and potential. Students are encouraged to 
roceed through the licensure process in a sequential manner. Teacher certification can be earned 
ancurrently with any other major during the four year undergraduate experience. For details of 
le licensure program fitting a student's major and program of study, contact the Department of 
ducation. 

Cooperative Programs 

usiness Administration 

lajor Plus Program in Business Administration: The Else School of Management offers a pro- 
ram designed to permit students pursuing degrees other than the B.B.A., particularly those 
working toward the B.A., to complete the M.B.A. with only one additional year of study beyond 
le bachelor's degree program. The following courses, which constitute the foundation courses of 
le M.B.A. program, may be taken as general electives during the student's bachelor's program: 

College Algebra 
Elementary Statistics 
Principles of Economics 
Principles of Corporate Finance 
Survey of Accounting 
Introduction to Management 
Fundamentals of Marketing 
Operations Management 

^ non-B.B.A. student who successfully completes all of the prescribed courses will be in a posi- 
ion to earn the M.B.A. by completing the upper-level courses pertinent to that degree program, 
his can be done in 12-15 months of study at Millsaps College. For details of the Major Plus 
irogram, contact the Director of Graduate Business Admissions. 

i^ngineering and Applied Science 

rhis program at Millsaps offers many opportunities for the student interested in engineering, 
applied science, management, and business administration. With this cooperative program, the 
tudent can combine the advantages of a liberal education at Millsaps with the specialized pro- 
;rams of a major university. The Arthur C. Miller Pre-engineering Scholarship Fund provides a 
cholarship based on financial need and academic progress for a student expressing an interest in 
mgineering.

Vanderbilt, and Washington universities - by which a student may attend Millsaps for three year j 
and then complete work at any of the schools listed above. The student may transfer a maximum 
of 32 semester hours back to receive a bachelor's degree from Millsaps and at the end of the fifth 
year receives another bachelor's degree from the university. 

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

3-3 B.S./M.S. and B.S./M.B.A. Programs: Washington University also has a combined Degree 
Program wherein the student spends three years at Millsaps and then spends three years at 
Washington University earning both the B.S. and M.S. from the School of Engineering and 
Applied Science or both the B.S. from the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the 
M.B.A. from the Graduate School of Business Administration. 

A wide variety of programs are offered by the four 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 adviser. To be admitted to the programs list 
ed 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 earli- 
est 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 adviser 
Some programs have particular requirements, such as the Auburn University electrical engineer- 
ing requirement of an ethics course, which students might wish to fulfill at Millsaps. 

The Dual Degree Program at Auburn University includes bachelor of engineering degrees in 
aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, material, and mechanical engineering. It is also 

possible to obtain a B.S. in agricultural engineering.

Special Programs 
ird Teaching Fellows Program 

le Ford Teaching Fellows Program provides an opportunity for upper-class students with an 
terest in college teaching to work closely with a faculty member in their area of academic inter- 
t. Primary teaching under faculty supervision is encouraged as well as research and scholarship, 
ich student must submit an application, completed jointly with their proposed faculty mentor, 
the program director early in the spring semester. Approximately twelve students are selected 
ch year for participation in this program. 

le Honors Program 

le Honors Program provides an opportunity for students of outstanding ability to pursue an 
Ivanced course of study which would ordinarily not be available. In the spring of their junior 
*ar and the fall of their senior year, honors students carry out a research project of their choice 
fider a professor's direction. The project's final product, consisting wholly or partially of a writ- 
[n thesis, is presented before a panel of faculty members. In the spring of the senior year, students 
irticipate in an interdisciplinary colloquium which intensively examines a topic of broad interest, 
udents successfully completing all phases of the Honors Program receive the designation "with 
pnors" in their field of honors work at graduation. Students interested in participating in the 
onors Program should consult with the program director in the fall of their junior year. 

he Washington Semester 

he Washington Semester is a joint arrangement between American University, Millsaps College, 
id other colleges and universities in the United States to extend the resources of the national 
ipital to superior students in the field of the social sciences. The object is to provide a direct 
)ntact with the work of governmental departments and other national and international agencies 
lat are located in Washington, thus acquainting the students with possible careers in public serv- 
e and imparting a knowledge of government in action. 

nder this arrangement, qualified students of demonstrated capacity from the participating col- 
ges spend a semester at the School of Government and Public Administration of the American 
University in Washington. They earn sixteen semester hours of credit toward graduation. Eight 
mester hours are earned in a Conference Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and 
overnment meet with students. Four semester hours are earned in a research course, which 
itails the writing of a paper by utilizing the sources available only at the nation's capital. An 
dditional four semester hours are earned in an Internship, in which the student is placed in a 
overnment or public interest organization office. 

chool of Management Intern Programs 

tudents have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical experience in man- 

59 



agement through an estabhshed Internship Program. The program involves prominent regional j 
and national business organizations and agencies of the state government. The student's training I 
is conducted and supervised by competent management personnel according to a predetermined' 
agenda of activities. Evaluation of the student's participation and progress provides the basis for ; 
granting appropriate academic credit. 

International Study ' 

Based on the belief that international experience is vital to successful leadership in all academic 
and professional fields, the Center for International Initiatives (CII) is dedicated to the promo 
tion and development of international co-curricular opportunities for all members of the Millsai 
community. International study typically takes place between the completion of a student's first 
and third year of study at Millsaps College. A student may arrange to study abroad for a semes- 
ter, year, or summer. The timing of study is determined, in part, by a student's academic prograr 
and progress toward completion of their degree requirements. 

Students interested in international study should contact the CII as much as a year in advance o: 
their intended term of departure for assistance in planning and program selection. Programs are 
located in every corner of the world, cover virtually all interest areas, and typically have one or 
more of the following foci: academic, fine arts, service, internship, language, and teaching. The 
Study Abroad office provides information on programs sponsored by Millsaps College in addi 
tion to those sponsored by other organizations. 

Among Millsaps students, the most popular program choices are those designed, directed, and 
taught by Millsaps faculty each summer. Millsaps programs are located in France, Costa Rica, 
Mexico/Yucatan, China, Greece/Italy, and Europe (Business or Liberal Arts). In addition, a win 
ter break course for business students is offered in the Yucatan. Participants receive full academi 
credit for select core and major requirements without having to worry about transfer credit 
issues. In addition, direct exchange options are offered in Japan, Ireland, and Scotland. 

Financial Aid for Study Abroad 

Students who receive or are eligible to receive federal financial aid may apply these funds towan 
the cost of study in an approved program. Unsubsidized federal loans for the purpose of study 
abroad are available for students who do not qualify for need-based aid. The Millsaps Alternati% 
Loan Program enables most students to cover the full cost of any off-campus study program. 
Eligibility for the loan is based on the total cost of off-campus study, less any other financial aid 
received. The student must be credit-worthy or have a credit-worthy co-signer. Interest accrual 
begins immediately. The payback period begins 6 months after graduation with no penalty for 
early payment. 

Millsaps academic scholarships may not be applied toward off-campus study. Students planning 
international study during the fall or spring semester must complete the Application for Office 
Campus Study (see below) in order to maintain eligibility to retain academic scholarships. 
However, it will be necessary to reapply for need-based aid. 

A number of scholarship programs are available to assist students in affording study abroad. 
Several key award programs are listed below. A complete listing can be found on the Millsaps 
web site at http://www.millsaps.edu/stuafr/career/scholarships.shtml. 



The Freeman Awards for Study In Asia offers qualified undergraduate U.S. citizens or permanej 
residents the financial support to travel and learn in countries in East and Southeast Asia for up 
to one academic year. Grants range between $3,000 to $7,000, depending on the length of stay. 
Priority is given to students with no previous experience in Asia.

f up to $5,000 to assist with study abroad related expenses. Applications are only considered 
-cm students who are receiving a Pell grant at the time of application. 

Lotary Scholarships provide funding for up to one academic year of study in another country, 
fhis award is intended to help cover round-trip transportation, tuition, fees, room and board 
xpenses, and some educational supplies. Application must be made through a local Rotary club

plete an Application for Off-Campus Study, which can be found in the Study Abroad Office (3rd 
"loor, Student Center). Program choice and courses for Millsaps credit must be pre-approved, 
tudents seeking such credit should not make a final commitment to a program until such 
ipproval is received.

itional Chinese architecture, arts, and village life, our visits to Suzhou (a world heritage site 
jimous for its private gentry homes with traditional gardens) and Zhou-zhuang (a 900-year old 
■illage in southern China famous for its intellectuals and entrepreneurs during the imperial era), 
{fill help students understand the characteristics of Chinese culture and national character and see 
ow these characteristics have influenced the economic development in China today. 

fhe interaction between cultural tradition and the demands of a modern economy will be further 
Ixamined by our visits to various schools in "Wuhan. These visits, which will include a kinder- 
arten, a foreign language school with grades one to twelve, and two universities, will introduce 
'tudents to China's education system and enable them to observe the impact of government poli- 
jies, particularly the one-child-per-family policy, and the significant role the family plays in chil- 
ren's academic achievement. In Wuhan, we will also meet Millsaps graduates who are teaching 
Inglish at Wuhan Institute of Technology to discuss the issues of higher education in China and 
le experience of working and studying in China after Millsaps. Finally we will explore the issues 
elated to economic reform in China to see its results in improving living standards as well as its 
npact on the environment and its implications for the rest of the world by visiting economic 
(evelopment zones in Wuhan and the Three Gorges, where China is building the world's largest 
iam. The purpose of these visits is for students to see and to think about the complex relation- 
nip between economic development, the material well-being of the people, population size, and 
tie preservation of the environment.

Administration of the Curriculum { 

Grades, Honors, and Class Standing ' 

The grade in any class is determined by the combined class standing and a written examination a;' 
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 anc 

above are passing marks, and F represents failure. 
W indicates that a student has withdrawn from a course or has received approval to 

withdraw from the College. 

I indicates that the work is incomplete. If the incomplete is not removed by the end of 
the following semester, the incomplete grade will change to a F. 

IP indicates work in progress during the current semester. 

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 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. 

The deadline for submitting grade changes to the Office of Records will be no later than the date 
that midterm grades are due in the semester following the one that contains the error. The same 
deadline will apply to changes in grades for students who have already graduated. No changes 
will be made in class rankings or graduation rankings based upon grade changes for students that 
have graduated. Any changes in distinction will be posted to the individual's record. If a change 
in distinction occurs, the student must return the original diploma to the Office of Records. 
Once the original diploma is received, another diploma will be ordered with the correct distinc- 
tion on it. 

68 



;t is the student's responsibility to inform the Office of Records of any possible errors and to 
work with the professor(s) involved. 

j This deadline does not apply to the grades of Incomplete or W, which have separate policies. 

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 

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

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 proficiency 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 by the last day to add classes, 
predit/no credit grading requires full participation of the student in all class activities. Credit sig- 
nifies 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. 

Auditing Courses 

Courses may be audited if the instructor of the course gives written approval on the registration 
form. Students must indicate their intention to audit at the time of registration, and once a course 
has been registered for audit, it may not be changed. No credit is earned for courses that are 
audited, and the grade of audit does not affect the GPA. For information about fees associated 
with auditing courses, see the special fees section of the catalog. 

Repeat Courses 

A student may enroll in a course at Millsaps which has previously been taken. A course previous- 
ly taken at Millsaps may also be repeated at another institution with the prior approval of the 
registrar in consultation with the appropriate department chair. Since Millsaps accepts transfer 
work only on a non-graded basis, repeating a course at another institution will not improve a 
student's grade point average at Millsaps. When a course is repeated, no additional course credit 
is earned, but all grades earned at Millsaps 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. 

Certain courses that have different content each semester taught may be repeated for credit. 
Examples of these courses are Special Topics courses. Directed Readings, Independent Studies, 
Research, Internships, a few major courses, and even some IDST courses. Occasionally a student 
may take one of these courses over again with the exact same course content in order to make a 

69 



better grade. If this scenario occurs, it is the responsibiHty of the student and the professor to 
inform the Office of Records. Credit can not be given twice for two courses with the same content. 

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. 

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 fac- 
ulty 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 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. 
A student may voluntarily withdraw candidacy for honors at any time. Regular college regula- 
tions 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: 

L Completion of requirements for a B.A. or B.S. 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; Business and Education courses, as well as studio courses in art, music, and theater 
can not be considered.) 

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

3. One college course in mathematics, calculus or above, and one college course in a foreign 
language at the intermediate level or above. (AP credit will not be counted toward election 
requirements in either category.) 

4. A minimum cumulative 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 gradu- 
ates 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 
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Students are 
elected each spring. To be considered for membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, an undergraduate 
must: 

70 



I. Pursue the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, 

I. Be of high moral character, 

5. Be in the upper seven percent of the junior class or upper ten percent of the senior class, and 

\. Be approved by the nominating committee. 

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

Dean's Scholars 

A.t 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. 
I^'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

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 18 hours of academic work 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 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 with- 
out 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 W. 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. 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 must meet 

71 



with the Director of Retention and Student Success for an exit interview and to obtain a with- 
drawal form. No refund will be considered unless the withdrawal form with appropriate signa- 
tures 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 but before mid-semester will 
have grades recorded as W in each course. A student who withdraws without permission receives 
a grade of F in each course. 

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

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 stu- 
dents 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. 

Medical Withdrawal 

Medical withdrawals are granted to students only in the rare case where their physical, mental, oi 
emotional health prevents them from continuing studies at the college. 

It is the sole responsibility of the student requesting a medical withdrawal during any semester tc 
complete and submit all required paperwork by the last day of classes in that semester as defined 
by the official college calendar. All requests for medical withdrawals must be accompanied by a 
medical professional's recommendation for withdrawal and documentation of illness. Students 
granted a medical withdrawal will receive the grade of W in all attempted classes. Medical with- 
drawals may only be granted for the current semester. Upon return to the college, students must 
present documentation from the medical professional that states the student has been treated by j 
medical professional and in his/her expert opinion the student's condition has improved to the 
point that he/she can handle the demands of college life. 

Academic Probation 

Students who earn a semester grade point average of less than 1.5 in any semester will be placed 
on academic probation. A student will also be placed on academic probation 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 60 semester hours or 
less have been attempted, or 

2.0 cumulative grade point average when greater than 60 semester hours have been attempted. 
71 



\. student may be removed from academic probation by earning a 2.0 grade point average during 
regular semester at Millsaps College provided that the student completes at least 12 semester 
lOurs and has an acceptable cumulative average. 

Academic Suspension 

;\. Student on academic probation for two consecutive semesters is subject to academic suspension. 
I 

itudents who have been suspended may petition the dean of the college in writing for readmis- 
ion. The first suspension will ordinarily be for the duration of one semester, the second suspen- 
sion for a full academic year. Students seeking readmission should apply as soon as possible in 
i)rder to assure sufficient time to fulfill whatever requirements may be necessary for readmission 
|0 be granted. If students take classes at another school while on suspension from Millsaps, those 
purses will not transfer back to Millsaps. 

Jnsatisfactory Academic Progress 

V part-time student who makes a grade point average of less than 1.5 in any semester will be 
lotified that he or she is making unsatisfactory academic progress. To be removed from that clas- 
ification, the student must make a 2.0 grade point average during a regular semester or summer 
ession. 

3lass Attendance 

rregular attendance indicates that the student may be having difficulties adjusting to the course 
)r to college. The primary responsibility for counseling students with respect to their absence 
ests with the faculty member; but, in the following circumstances, the faculty member is expect- 
:d to report in writing the student's unsatisfactory attendance record to the Director of 
Mention. 

^or a freshman - whenever the total absences are equal to twice the number of class meetings per 
veek. 

^or any student - after three successive absences for reasons unknown to the instructor, or when 
n danger of failing the course. 

rhe 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 
:he beginning of the semester. This may extend to dismissal from the course with a grade of F for 
■easons solely of absence. 

\bsences 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 
ibsence provided by a parent, medical doctor, or a member of the faculty or administration may 
DC 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, 
aboratory sessions, and similar scheduled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not 
jxcuse students from attendance on the two days preceding and the two days following vacation 
Deriods without the express permission of the dean. 

Each student is responsible for knowing general attendance policy of the College and the particu- 
lar policies operative in each class. Further details relating to attendance are in the student hand- 
book, Major Facts. 

73 



Examinations I 

Permission to make up an examination or alter the time for an examination may be granted only 
by the instructor of the class for a specific student. If an instructor wishes to change the time of ;' 
final exam for a class, he or she must obtain permission from the Dean of the College. 

No student should be required to take more than two final exams on one day. Students will be I 
expected to take the initiative to resolve any conflicts with the appropriate faculty. If a resolutior' 
is not reached, the student will appeal to the Dean of the College. i 

Senior Exemptions I 

Students may elect to be exempt from final examinations only in the semester in which they com 
plete 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 nc] 
circumstances may a student be exempt from any examination in more than one term or semes- I 
ter. Seniors may be allowed one special examination in any subject taken and failed in the senior I 
year. Permission for such examination must be secured from the dean or associate dean of the 
college. Students may request exemption from other requirements by petition to the Dean of the ' 
College. I 

Honor Code j 

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 affirm their j 
adherence to these basic ethical principles. An Honor Code is not simply a set of rules and pro- i 
cedures 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 them- . 
selves 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 Honoii 
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 

Students at Millsaps, because they are members of an academic community dedicated to the 
achievement of excellence, are expected to meet the highest standards of personal, ethical, and 
moral conduct possible. The commitment of its faculty, staff, and students to these standards 
contributes to the high respect in which the Millsaps degree is held. Students must not destroy 
that respect by failure to meet these standards. 

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. In addition, students failing to follow the direction of a college official, who is acting 
within the scope of their responsibilities, may be subject to disciplinary action. 

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 organiza- 
tions are expected to comply with rules concerning the academic, social, and residential life of the 

74 



College. They are expected to comply with directions of college officials. Students are responsi- 
ble for the behavior of their guests while on Millsaps property and/or at Millsaps functions. 

rhe Millsaps Judicial System has been put in place to ensure the protection and preservation of 
:he academic environment on campus where all students are free to pursue their educational 
^oals. The system is educational in that it encourages students to become better citizens and live 
ip to the higher standard of behavior expected of all Millsaps students. Millsaps students are 
expected to act with honesty and integrity in personal, social, and academic relationships and 
vith consideration and concern for the community, its members, and its property. We emphasize 
education by focusing on growth and development of the individual student, encouraging self- 
liscipline, and fostering a respect for others. 

rhe Millsaps Judicial System is not intended to mirror any court system. The policies and proce- 
iures used are not meant to resemble those in the criminal process. There is a fundamental differ- 
ence in the nature of student discipline and that of criminal law. Student discipline is meant to 
naintain a positive living and learning environment. The process is designed to help students 
nake positive choices for themselves, choosing self-responsibility instead of submitting to peer- 
)ressure, and to challenge them to accept responsibility for any negative choices. 

Ucoholic Beverages 

vlillsaps College is an educational institution dedicated to a strong academic program and to pro- 
dding a caring community. The College strives to help its students become self-directed, respon- 
ible citizens. The College's alcohol policy is intended to assist in the creation of a campus envi- 
onment where students have the opportunity to learn how to deal responsibly, both individually 
nd socially, with alcoholic beverages. 

vlillsaps College does not encourage the consumption of alcoholic beverages. Members and 
;uests of the Millsaps College community who are of legal drinking age (21 years old) and 
:hoose to consume alcoholic beverages are expected to do so responsibly and in consideration of 
ihe consequences to self, others, and the community-at-large. Any consumption of alcohol must 
)e done within the limits of the applicable laws and relevant college policies. 

W\ members of the campus community are expected to recognize the potential for alcohol abuse 
.nd that abuse of alcohol is absolutely at variance with the mission of the College. Persons who 
nfringe upon the rights of others or who conduct themselves in an inappropriate manner which 
s caused by or can be shown to be related to the consumption of alcohol shall be held account- 
.ble for their actions and subject to disciplinary and/or criminal action. 

I ^ . . 

ihe regulations and practices governing the use of alcoholic beverages apply to all members of 
he Millsaps College community. The primary responsibility for knowing and abiding by the 
(revisions of the College's alcoholic beverage policy rests with each individual. 

Uegal Substances 

rhe College cannot condone violations of federal, state, or local laws regarding any illegal drugs, 
iarcotics, and dangerous substances. The use, possession, or distribution of such substances, 
;xcept as expressly permitted by law, is not permitted. 

disciplinary Regulations 

itudents responsible of serious and/or multiple infractions of College regulations may be subject 
o disciplinary action including social probation, disciplinary probation, disciplinary suspension, 
>r disciplinary expulsion. The Judicial Council may enact social probation or disciplinary proba- 

75 



tion and may forward a recommendation for disciplinary suspension or disciplinary expulsion to 
the President. The President and/or the Vice President and Dean of Students may enact any of 

these sanctions when warranted. 

I 

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 am 
the College. The terms of social probation include, but are not limited to prohibiting said studeni 
from participating in extracurricular campus activities such as fraternity/sorority social activities 
as well as intramural and varsity sports. In addition, a student may hold no office of campus 
leadership. When an organization is placed on social probation, the organization may not spon- 
sor social activities in the name of the organization, or in a manner that could reasonably be 
interpreted as sponsorship by the organization, for the period of the social probation. 

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. 

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 expulsion, the stu- 
dent's financial status will be treated as if the student withdrew. (See policy under Financial 
Regulations section.)

Population - as preparation for teaching in independent or private schools or as meeting the 
requirements for a Minor in Education. However, independent school administrators have 
become increasingly interested in teacher candidates who are fully prepared and certified within a 
liberal arts curriculum. 

In accordance with Title II federal regulations, all students seeking licensure must take and pass 
the national exam as required by MDE in their subject areas prior to student teaching. 

Admission to the Program 

Formal application to the program can be made during the freshman, sophomore, or first semes- 
ter of the junior year. Admission is based on academic standing and evidence of interest in teach- 
ing. Applicants must be able to schedule departmental and program requirements with a reason- 
able degree of flexibility. 

Although professors in the Department of Education as well as a student's academic adviser are 
available for consultation and guidance about a particular program of study, it is the student's 
responsibility to make certain that all academic requirements are met for a degree, licensure, and 
graduation. Successful completion of academic requirements depends heavily on student initia- 
tive, strategic planning, and record keeping. Appropriate questions and documentation are essen- 
tial for successful program completion. Permanent records are kept in the Office of Records. 

Teaching Area Requirements 

The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) requires that students preparing to teach at the 
secondary level major in an academic discipline. In addition, students may teach in other areas by 
obtaining "areas of concentration" as well as middle school licensure. With careful course plan- 
ning, it is possible to receive licensure in more than one teaching area. These teaching areas 
require 21 or more credit hours in a particular field of study and/or passage of the Praxis II Area 
Specialty Exam, depending upon one's major. Many Millsaps students fulfill these areas by 
matriculation through the college core curriculum and by meeting requirements for Minors. 
Students may also major in Elementary Education and receive elementary and middle school 
licensure. In accordance with Title II federal regulations, all students seeking licensure must take 
and pass the state exams in their subject areas prior to student teaching. 

Professional Education Requirements 

Program participants must take four behavioral social science courses that have relevance to the 
teaching and learning process. These courses constitute a Minor in Education. A list of addition- 
ally approved courses is available in the Education Office. Traditional teacher licensure requires 
the student teaching semester. This is usually the equivalent of 16 hours, but can be reduced to 12 
hours of credit if a student needs another course to graduate during that semester. The professional 

121 



education sequence includes the following: 

• Human Development, a Cross-Cultural Perspective (IDS 1610) 

• Methods and Management, or embedded in appropriate class in major (EDU 3200) 

• Field Research in Reading (EDU 3850) 

• Education of the Exceptional Population (EDU 3130) 

• Student Teaching semester (EDU 4500) I 
More courses are required for students seeking Elementary Licensure, for this constitutes a Major. 

Preparation for Independent School Teaching 

Students who are not enrolled in the Program for Teacher Preparation may enroll in IDS 1610, i 
EDU 3200, EDU 3850, or EDU 3130 as preparation for teaching in independent schools after I 
graduation. The requirements for these courses are the same for these students as for students in i 
the licensure program. Completion of these four courses meet the requirements for a Minor in 
Education. Students considering this option should meet with a program staff member early in i 
the spring semester of the sophomore or junior year. j 

i 

The Practice Teaching Option 

Program participants who find that they are unable to schedule Student Teaching into a semester 
of their senior year can take this course after graduation. There is a modest tuition charge for the { 
extra semester, and students are responsible for their own room and board. Students considering | 
this option should discuss their plans with a member of the Education Department, since special i 
arrangements are required. 

I 
Student Teaching and Coursework Abroad 

Program participants may elect to teach abroad during their student teaching semester, or take 
other courses towards their majors or areas of concentration abroad. A variety of options are 
available including programs in Germany, Canada, the Yucatan, South America, and other 
Department of Defense schools. If a student is interested in this possibility, the student needs to 
contact the Education Department faculty as early as possible so that arrangements can be made. 

Placement 

The Teacher Preparation program provides placement services to Millsaps students and alumni 
seeking teaching positions in elementary and secondary schools, both public and private. 

Lilly Service Intern and Lilly Fellow Programs 

Students may opt to become Lilly Service Interns or Lilly Fellows. Both options are designed to 
encourage exploration into the relationship between work, meaning, and service to others. Both 
Interns and Fellows must take the course The Meaning of Work, cross-listed in Religion and 
Philosophy. Lilly Service Interns also take one service-learning course — Field Research in 
Reading, Methods and Management, or Performance Assessment, Literacy, or Reading — or 
complete one Lilly Internship. The Student Teaching semester can meet this requirement. Lilly 
Fellows complete The Meaning of Work, an Applied Ethics course, and two semesters of Lilly 
Internship. Fellows receive $1000.00 stipend for their Internship work. Both the Service Interns 
and the Fellows programs, when successfully completed, appear on students' permanent tran- 
script. For more information, visit www.millsaps.edu/faithwrk/ or email faithwork@millsaps.edu.

Interdisciplinary Programs 
American Studies 

American Studies is an interdisciplinary program focused upon the multi-faceted culture and ci 
ilization of the United States. The program integrates the study of fields such as history, litera- 
ture, politics, art, philosophy, and religion in an effort to create a better understanding of the 
nation we call united. 

The concentration in American Studies is like a minor; however, unlike a minor that is containe 
in one specific discipline, the American Studies concentration is interdisciplinary. If you complt 
a concentration in American Studies, your transcript will reflect this upon graduation. 

Requirements for Area of Concentration: A student may elect an area of concentration in 
American Studies (along with his or her major) by completing the following requirements with 
minimum grade of C: ] 

American Studies 2000: Introduction to American Studies (4 sem. hours). This course is an 
interdisciplinary introduction to the field of American Studies. In it, we explore several things: 
the questions raised by critical study of American experiences; the intellectual debates surround 
ing interpretations of American literature, arts, religions, philosophies, cultures, and history; anc 
especially the paradoxes inherent to American identity, whether we are defining "the" Americar 
individual or the nation as a whole. 

Electives: (16 sem. hours). In addition to the Introduction to American Studies, students must } 
take the equivalent of four courses of approved American Studies classes with multidisciplinary 
breadth. (This means that at least one of these four electives must come from a different academ 
department than the others. All four courses cannot come from the same department.) 

Questions about American Studies? If you have any questions about the American Studies coi 
centration, please contact Dr. Anne MacMaster in the English department or Dr. Robert 
McElvaine in the History department.

European Studies 

The program in European Studies is designed for those students who are keenly interested in 
European affairs. The major or minor in European Studies cuts across traditional departmental 
and divisional boundaries and allows the student to work with faculty to design a program of 
study which integrates those aspects of European affairs which best meet the student's interests. 
European art, business, history, languages, literatures, music, philosophy, and poHtical science ari 
among the areas of study available to students in European Studies. 

Requirements for Major: Students complete a major in European Studies with a total of 40 
semester hours, including the following four components; ' 

1. The Introductory Course (4 sem. hours). History 2210: European Civilization Since 1789. 

2. The Language Component. Students are required to study one European language. In addi- 
tion to satisfying the B.A. requirement in that language, the ES major must complete at least K; 
semester hours beyond the B.A. requirement in that language. 1 

3. The Multidisciplinary Component (20 sem. hours). Students will take 20 semester hours, I 
beyond those described above, from a list of elective courses provided by the director of the i 
European Studies Program. No more than 12 semester hours may be in the same department. ; 
No more than four semester hours may be from the core. No more than eight semester hours i 
of language courses, beyond those that are required for the European Studies major, may be I 
counted as elective courses toward the major. ; 

4. The Colloquium and Comprehensive Exams (4 sem. hours). Students will take written and j 
oral examinations administered by the European Studies Committee. i 

Requirements for Minor: Students may complete a minor in European Studies with a total of 20 1 
semester hours, including the following three components. First, students are required to study I 
one European language. In addition to satisfying the B.A. requirement in that language, the ES 
minor must complete at least eight semester hours beyond the B.A. requirement in that language.! 
Second, minors must complete the introductory course for European Studies (History 2210; 4 
sem. hours). Third, minors must take eight semester hours, beyond those described above, from ai 
list of elective courses provided by the director of the European Studies Program. Those two 
elective courses may not be in the same department, and none of them may be from the core. 

4000 European Studies Colloquium (4 sem. hours). An interdisciplinary research forum in 
which students pursue an individual, directed reading and writing project within their areas of 
concentration. This project will lead to the completion, during the spring semester of the stu- 
dent's senior year, of an interdisciplinary senior thesis. 

Some form of financial aid may be available for certain European Studies programs. Students 
interested in financial aid for any of these programs should contact the Student Aid Financial 
Planning staff for more information. 

Human Services 

Human Services is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide students with academic 
experiences relevant to a number of postgraduate employment and graduate study opportunities 
such as social work, clinical and counseling psychology, family therapy, child protective services, 
guidance and school counseling, and community activism. Students planning a career in human 
and helping services will find the concentration invaluable. 

Requirements for Area of Concentration: 

The interdisciplinary Human Services Concentration consists of six courses. All students are 

146 



required to complete HMSV-1600: Introduction to Human Services. The Introduction to Human 
Services course provides an integrated interdisciplinary structure for connecting the various

International Studies 

The Concentration in International Studies is designed to reward students who want to learn 
about contemporary global affairs in an interdisciplinary fashion. 

The Concentration in International Studies will require the following courses: 



147 



Required Introductory Course (Choose one four-hour course.) 

• IDS 2500 (Core 5): Globalization and Technology (Storey) 

• POL SCI 2400: International Relations (Omo-Bare) 

Required Study Abroad: Students must participate in one study abroad program that is 
approved by the college. In consultation with faculty advisers, students may choose a program i 
that takes place during a summer, a semester, or a year. I 

The program must provide at least four hours of approved credit. Those credits may be used 
to fulfill the distribution requirements for the concentration. In case of programs that are inter- 
disciplinary in nature, the Director of International Studies will determine, in consultation with 
the student, which distribution requirements are fulfilled by that program. 

Programs are available in almost every country and discipline. The Millsaps Study Abroad 
Office will assist students in identifying and selecting programs. Some of the best options are 
listed below, under distribution requirements. 

Financial aid is now available for study abroad. Students may apply for loans to support study' 
abroad. The Study Abroad Office will work with students who are interested in applying for ■ 
loans. Outside scholarships may also be available to students. i 

I 
Distribution Requirements: Students must choose courses worth 24 hours, in at least three i 
departments, in at least two divisions. 

'■ 

Courses are to be approved by the Director of International Studies in consultation with the 
members of the faculty who are offering the courses in question. 

Approved courses will focus substantially on foreign, international, or cross-cultural issues that 
have developed since the beginning of the twentieth century. By "substantial" focus on this time 
period, we mean that at least half of the course will address the period since 1900. For example, 
the survey of modern European history begins in 1789, but typically students in the course spend 
half of their time studying the history since 1900. That course, and others like it, will count 
toward the concentration, in addition to courses that focus exclusively on the twentieth century. 

Eight hours of credit may be double-counted from the student's major department, provided that 
the courses being double-counted have a substantial focus on contemporary and international 
issues. 

"Special topics" courses not listed in the catalog may also be counted, provided that they also 
have a substantial focus on contemporary and international issues.

Self-Designed Majors 

The Self-Designed Major (SDM) is a customized major designed by a student working closely 
with appropriate faculty. The curricular, instructional, and administrative framework for the 
pursuit of a SDM is not, by contrast with that of standard majors, already in place. It must be 
constructed by a special effort. Although members of the faculty and administration of the 
College stand ready to help the student at many points along the way, the initiative for this 
special effort lies with the student. Consequently, a higher degree of self-motivation may be 
demanded of a person desiring a SDM than those traveling the more established routes to graduatioi 

The following requirements apply to all SDMs: 

1. To qualify for consideration, the student must have at least a 3.0 GPA and must file a SDM 
petition and application in the Spring semester of the sophomore year. 

2. The proposed SDM will normally include at least 12 courses from two or three departments. ' 
To insure analytical rigor and depth in the SDM, the student must complete the courses equiva- 
lent to a minor and one additional upper-division course (3000 or higher) within at least one of 
the core disciplines. No credit will be awarded toward a minor in a discipline included as part ol 
a SDM. One appropriate IDS core course may count toward the major. 

3. The proposed SDM must focus on a coherent theme or issue and demonstrate an integration c 
the contributing disciplines. 

4. Every student declaring a SDM must also meet all Core and Degree requirements of the 
College in order to graduate, including the Core 10 requirement. Students will normally satisfy 
the Core 10 requirement by successfully completing the senior seminar in one of the disciplines. 
In the exceptional cases where the faculty committee and the student agree that the academic 
goals of the SDM are not met by a senior seminar, an upper-division seminar designated by the 
Committee or a senior thesis with an appropriate Core 10 component may satisfy the Core 10 
requirement. 

The following procedures must be followed for all SDM applications: 

1. The student is responsible for investigating the feasibility of the proposed SDM with appropri- 
ate faculty and consulting with the Coordinator of SDMs about requirements and procedures. 

2. The student must ask one faculty member from each participating department to support the 
SDM application. These members will form an advisery committee that serves as the "depart- 
ment" for that particular SDM until all the requirements are completed. One member of the 
committee will serve as the adviser of record and the Coordinator of SDMs will serve as Chair 
for all SDMs. 

3. The student will develop a petition, supported by the members of the advisery committee, 
explaining the rationale for this SDM; why the academic goals could not be met by existing 
majors or concentrations; and how this SDM advances particular career goals. 

4. This petition will be part of the formal application which should include the names of the fac- 
ulty committee; a list and schedule of proposed courses, field research, directed studies, and 
internships; and a plan for meeting the Senior Comprehensive examination requirements. Under 
normal circumstances, the faculty committee will develop and administer these exams. Finally, 
the applicant should also indicate how the Core 10 requirement will be met. Normally, this 

150 



would be satisfied by completing the senior seminar in one of the disciplines. If a senior thesis or 
designated upper-division seminar will be used to meet the Core 10 requirement, the applicant 
must demonstrate in the application why this option best serves the academic goals of the SDM. 

5. The petition and completed application, approved and endorsed by the faculty committee 
members and the Coordinator of SDMs, will be submitted to the College Curriculum 
Committee for final review and approval. In order for the SDM to be officially approved, it must 
have the signature of each faculty committee member, the Coordinator of SDMs, the Chair of the 
Curriculum Committee, and the Dean of the College. 

6. The Coordinator of SDMs will track the progress of each major and work with the Registrar 
of the College to certify the completion of each SDM.

The Else School of Management offers undergraduate degree programs which lead to the B.B.A. 
degree with majors in accounting or in business administration and a program which leads to 
B.A. or B.S. degrees with a major in economics. The Else School also offers two graduate 
degrees: Renaissance Master of Business Administration (R.M.B.A.) and Master of Accountancy 
(M.Acc). The R.M.B.A. degree may be completed in one year beyond the bachelor's degree for 
students who have completed the B.B.A. program at Millsaps or at any other AACSB 
International accredited institution, as well as for non-business students who complete the Major 
Plus program. The Master of Accountancy degree generally requires one additional year of study 
beyond the B.B.A. for students who have majored in accounting and wish to complete the educa- 
tional requirements to take the C.PA. examination. For details of the R.M.B.A., Major Plus, and 
M.Acc, see other sections of this catalog and other college pubUcations. The business programs 
offered by the Else School of Management at Millsaps College are accredited by the AACSB 
International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. 

Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) 

Educational Goals: The curriculum of the Bachelor of Business Administration degree (B.B.A.) is 

154 



lesigned to provide an educational base for a lifetime of learning to enable each student to realize 
lis or her potential. To accomplish this mission, educational goals have been identified to develop 
n each student: 1) a management outlook toward organizations and the ability to work with oth- 
:rs to accomplish common goals; 2) the ability to organize information for analysis and decision 
naking; 3) an understanding of the standards of professional behavior which are consistent with 
ithical precepts; 4) an awareness of the attributes necessary to attain positions of leadership; 5) an 
inderstanding of innovation and the importance of agents of change in society; 6) a global per- 
pective; and 7) an understanding of the changing societal, political, legal, and cultural environ- 
nents that organizations face. 

Degree Requirements: To earn the B.B.A. degree, students major in either accounting or busi- 
less administration. The B.B.A. academic program is a three-year, integrated body of study ordi- 
larily beginning in the fall of the sophomore year. Courses are sequenced so that each course is 
aught with the assumption that students in a class have a common academic background. To 
nsure educational diversity, at least fifty percent of courses (usually 64 or more semester hours) 
nust be non-business courses. Up to nine semester hours of economics courses may be consid- 
jred as nonbusiness courses. 

foundation Prerequisites: Students pursuing the B.B.A. degree must complete Survey of 
Calculus (Math 1210) or Analytical Geometry and Calculus I (Math 1220), or higher level mathe- 
jnatics, preferably during their freshman year. The mathematics requirement must be satisfied 
i)efore commencing junior-level courses. Elementary Statistics (Math 1150) should be completed 
)rior to the fall semester of the junior year. Sophomore-level B.B.A. core courses will be com- 
)leted before commencing junior-level B.B.A. courses. 

Curriculum: Eight core courses totaling 32 semester hours are required of all B.B.A. students in 
iddition to the courses required for the particular major (business administration or accounting). 
The business administration major includes the B.B.A. core courses plus Business Strategy and 12 
lemester hours (typically three courses) of Else School electives totaling 48 semester hours. 
Students planning to complete degree requirements and leave the College at the end of a fall 
pemester must take Management 4000: Business Strategy in the spring of the preceding academic 
year. The accounting major includes the B.B.A. core courses and 32 additional semester hours

offered. 

Transfer Credit: Students may transfer from other schools and pursue the B.B.A. at the Else 
School, but at least fifty percent of the B.B.A. course work must be taken at Millsaps. For the 

business administration major, this means at least 24 semester hours of B.B.A. coursework must 
be completed at Millsaps. For the accounting major, 32 semester hours of B.B.A. course work 
must be completed at Millsaps. Transfer students may receive credit for Principles of Accounting 
and Principles of Economics if they passed six semester hours of Principles of Accounting and 
six semester hours in Principles of Economics with a grade of C or better at their previous insti- 
tution. They must, however, take the four junior-level B.B.A. 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 Else School. For business administration majors. Business Strategy 
(Mgmt 4000) must be taken at Millsaps; for accounting majors, at least 12 semester hours in 
accounting (three courses) required in the major must be taken at Millsaps. Ordinarily, course 
work taken more than six years prior to admission or readmission to the Else School and aca- 
demic work in which the student receives 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 B.B.A. courses at the 3000 level or above at an institution 
other than Millsaps must do so at an AACSB International accredited institution and have prior 
approval from the Dean of the Else School of Management. All students are required to complete 
at least fifty percent of their B.B.A. courses at Millsaps. 

Master of Accountancy Program (M.Acc.)

intend to pursue professional careers in public accounting, business, and the government/non- 
profit sector. The M.Acc. degree fulfills the educational requirements to sit for the CPA examina- 
tion in states which have adopted the AICPA's 150 credit hour requirement. In general, the 
M.Acc. program involves a fifth year of study beyond the accounting major. Students who plan 
to seek the M.Acc. degree should pursue the basic accounting major as outlined above. For more 

156 



details about the M.Acc. program, see any member of the accounting faculty and other college 
publications. 

Student's Guide to Earning a B.B.A. 

The following is a four-year curriculum typical of Millsaps students majoring in business admin- 
istration. Though this is representative of a B.B.A. 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, B.B.A. students will complete 
Core 1 through 9 as well as the mathematics courses, which are the foundations for the B.B.A. 
curriculum. It should be noted that a B.B.A. student may choose to take more than the minimum 
of 48 semester hours of Else School courses but at least fifty percent of total semester hours 
credit must be non-business courses.
