Tradition, Purpose 
and Goals 




Tradition, Purpose, and Goals 

Oglethorpe derives its institutional purpose from an awareness and 
appreciation of the University's heritage and from an analysis of the needs 
of contemporary society. The goals of the educational program and of other 
component parts of the University are based on this sense of institutional 
purpose. 

The Oglethorpe Tradition 

Three main ideas or models of what higher education ought to be have 
shaped American colleges and universities. The first is the model of the English 
college, particularly in the form developed at Oxford and Cambridge in the 
18th and 19th centuries. Most of the older institutions in the United States 
were patterned on the English colleges of that period. Many observers have 
concluded that this is the finest type of collegiate education produced by 
Western civilization. 

The second idea is that of the German university, especially of the 19th 
century. This model, which has had enormous influence on American univer- 
sities, stresses professional education (as in medicine and law), graduate study 
leading to the Ph.D. degree, and specialized research. The German university 
idea was imported into the United States by lohns Hopkins and other institu- 
tions in the last century and has left its mark on every college and university 
in this country. 

The third idea or model is that of the land-grant college, a uniquely 
American institution created by the Morrill Act, passed by Congress in 1862. 
This model emphasizes large-scale technical education and service to 
agriculture and industry. It has contributed especially to education in such 
fields as engineering and agriculture and has been the foundation on which 
many of the state universities have been built. 

Oglethorpe University identifies itself with the tradition of the English 
college. Established in 183 5 and named after General lames Edward 
Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, the University was patterned on Corpus 
Christi College, Oxford, General Oglethorpe's alma mater. It would be overstating 
the matter to say that Oglethorpe University has been untouched by the other 
two conceptions of higher education, but it has certainly been shaped prin- 
cipally by the English tradition of collegiate education. 

What are the distinctive features of that tradition? Hundreds of books 
have been written on the subject, perhaps the most influential of which is 
lohn Henry Newman's The Idea of a University, one of the great educational 
classics. Briefly stated, four characteristics have made this kind of college 
widely admired: 

1) Colleges in the English tradition emphasize broad education for 
intelligent leadership. They believe that this is a more useful 
undergraduate education for the able young person than technical 
training for a specific job. 

2) Colleges such as Oglethorpe stress the basic academic com- 
petencies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning — and the 
fundamental fields of knowledge — the arts and sciences. These 
are essential tools of the educated person. 

5 



3) Close relationships between teacher and student are indispensable 
to this type of education. A teacher is much more than a conveyor 
of information — the invention of the printing press made that notion 
of education obsolete. Rather, the most important function of the 
teacher is to stimulate intellectual activity in the student and to 
promote his development as a mature person. Factory-like instruc- 
tion, conducted in huge classes, is the very antithesis of the English 
tradition. 

4) A collegiate education is far more than a collection of academic 
courses. It is a process of development in which campus leader- 
ship opportunities, residential life, athletics, formal and informal 
social functions, aesthetic experiences, and contact with students 
from other cultures, in addition to classroom exercises, all play 
important roles. Versatility and ability to lead are important goals 
of this type of undergraduate education. 

TWO other aspects of Oglethorpe's tradition were contributed by Philip 
Weltner, President of the University from 1944 to 1953. Oglethorpe, he said, 
should be "a small college which is superlatively good." Only at a small col- 
lege with carefully selected students and faculty, he believed, could young 
persons achieve their fullest intellectual development through an intense 
dialogue with extraordinary teachers. Thus, a commitment to limited size and 
superior performance are important elements of the Oglethorpe tradition. 

Purpose: Education for a Changing Society 

while an institution may take pride in a distinguished heritage, it is also 
essential that its educational program prepare young people to function 
effectively in our complex and rapidly changing society. What are the re- 
quirements of an education intended to inform and enrich lives and careers 
that will be conducted in the remainder of this century and beyond? 

Many commentators on contemporary social conditions and future 
trends agree that the rapidly changing society in which we live places a 
premium on adaptability. Persons in positions of leadership must be able to 
function effectively in changing circumstances. Rigid specialization, with its 
training in current practice, ill prepares the graduate for responsibilities in such 
a society. The broadly educated person, schooled in fundamental principles, 
is better equipped to exercise leadership in a world that is being transformed 
by high technology and new information. This point has been made persua- 
sively by lohn Naisbitt in the first chapter of his notable book Megatrends. One 
of the underlying trends he identifies in our society is that "we are moving 
from the specialist who is soon obsolete to the generalist who can adapt." 

Oglethorpe emphasizes the preparation of the humane generalist — the 
kind of leader needed by a complex and changing society Our purpose is 
to produce graduates who are broadly educated in the fundamental fields 
of knowledge and the basic concepts and principles of their disciplines and 
who are prepared to exercise responsible leadership in public and private life. 

The University limits its educational program to the arts and sciences, 
business administration, and teacher education. It defines its primary role as 
the conduct of a program of undergraduate education for men and women 
of above-average ability and traditional college age. In addition, a Master's 
degree in teacher education and programs of continuing education for adults 
are offered as services to the local community

Goals 

Educational programs at Oglethorpe seek to produce graduates who 
display abilities, skills, intellectual attitudes, and sensitivities which are related 
to the University's purpose. The core curriculum of general education, which 
is required in all baccalaureate programs, is designed to develop the following: 

1) The ability to comprehend English prose at an advanced level. 

2) The ability to convey ideas in writing and in speech accurately gram- 
matically, and persuasively 

3) Skill in reasoning logically about important matters. 

4) An understanding of the values and principles that have shaped 
Western civilization and of the methods employed in historical 
inquiry. 

5) A knowledge and appreciation of great literature, especially the 
great literature of the English-speaking world. 

6) An appreciation of one or more of the arts and an understanding 
of artistic excellence. 

7) An acquaintance with the methods of inquiry of mathematics and 
science and with the results of the efforts of scientists to under- 
stand physical and biological phenomena. 

8) An understanding of the most thoughtful reflections on right and 
wrong and an allegiance to principles of right conduct. 

9) A basic understanding of our economic, political, and social systems 
and of the psychological and sociological influences on human 
behavior. 

All undergraduate programs also require the student to develop a deeper 
grasp of one or more fields of knowledge organized coherently as a major. 
The student's major may be pursued in a single field, such as biology, 
economics, or English, or it may cut across two or more traditional fields (as 
an interdisciplinary or individually planned major). 

The curriculum and extra-curricular life are structured to engender in 
students the following: 

1) The willingness and ability to assume the responsibilities of leader- 
ship in public and private life, including skill in organizing the efforts 
of other persons in behalf of worthy causes. 

2) An inclination to continue one's learning after graduation from 
college and skill in the use of books and other intellectual tools 
for that purpose. 

3) A considered commitment to a set of career and life goals. 

4) An awareness of the increasingly international character of contem- 
porary life and skill in interacting with persons of diverse cultural 
backgrounds. 

The graduate program in teacher education seeks to support elemen- 
tary and middle grades education in the University's neighboring community 
by providing members of the teaching profession with the opportunity to 
enhance their knowledge and skills in areas of assessed need. The program 
enables practicing teachers and other students to achieve career advance- 
ment by earning the initial graduate degree in the field of education. Program 
graduates are expected to have developed and demonstrated: 



1) Familiarity with the scholarly literature in their field of study. 

2) Expertise in appropriate research techniques. 

3) The capacity for sustained study and independent thought. 
The continuing education program enables members of the metropolitan 

community to pursue their educational goals in a variety of programs and 
courses. Baccalaureate courses selected for adult learners from, the regular 
undergraduate curriculum are offered in the evening and on weekends. Ma- 
jors and programs of special relevance and interest to those already employed 
are emphasized to enable program graduates to attain advancement in their 
careers. 

Non-credit courses are also offered in the continuing education program 
in order to provide service to as broad a segment of the community as pos- 
sible. Courses focused on the goals of personal enrichment and professional 
development are offered during evening hours. Career advancement goals 
may be pursued in the non-credit curriculum through a certificate program 
in management. 

The success of Oglethorpe alumni in their subsequent education, a wide 
variety of careers, and community life attests to the soundness of this approach 
to education.

History 




History 

Oglethorpe University was chartered in 183 5 and began classes in 1838 
on a campus at Midway near Milledgeville, then Georgia's state capital. The 
new university comnnemorated in its nanne Georgia's founder. General lames 
Edward Oglethorpe, who had established the Colony of Georgia some one 
hundred years earlier in order to defend British North America and provide 
a new field of economic opportunity for the disadvantaged. Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity grew and prospered until 1860, when war caused the suspension of 
instruction. After the war, the institution relocated to Atlanta, the new state 
capital. For several years, classes were held in a large mansion house on the 
present site of the Atlanta City Hall. 

The University's 20th century history began with its re-founding on a 
new suburban campus in 1915 by a group of business and civic leaders led 
by Dr. Thornwell lacobs and supported by Oglethorpe alumni. The recipient 
of a generous grant of land on Peachtree Road north of Atlanta, the new 
Oglethorpe University began classes in September, 1916, as an independent, 
non-denominational institution. A number of new buildings were constructed 
in the 1920's in the collegiate Gothic style of Oxford's Corpus Christi College, 
General Oglethorpe's alma mater. Dr. lacobs guided the development of the 
University as President until his retirement in 1944. 

Under Dr. lacobs' leadership, the University pioneered in several areas, 
including education for gifted students and graduate education courses for 
teachers. Emphasis was placed on intercollegiate athletics, and Oglethorpe 
had notable teams in football and baseball. The University expanded its pro- 
gram rapidly during the 1920's and sponsored the first educational radio 
station. 

Since World War II, and especially during the last decade, Oglethorpe 
has focused its efforts on the development of a rigorous, coherent under- 
graduate curriculum in the arts and sciences, business administration, and 
education that is designed for students of above-average ability and motiva- 
tion. In addition, a graduate program in teacher education and a variety of 
continuing education programs for adults have been offered as part of the 
University's outreach to the community. 

The University now draws its student body of approximately 1 ,000 from 
a wide geographic area. About one half of its students come from Georgia. 
Substantial numbers are attracted from Florida, the Middle Atlantic States, 
and the Middle West. In a given year, the student body also includes persons 
from about twenty-five other countries. Education at Oglethorpe is intended 
to be a cosmopolitan and broadening experience. The University has become 
increasingly selective in admissions, and most of its entering students come 
from the top 10% of high school graduates. 

Special attention has been given to keeping the costs of Oglethorpe's 
educational programs within reason, and the University has received national 
recognition for providing high quality educational opportunities at moderate 
cost. The availability of a variety of financial aid programs also helps to ensure 
that academically able students from varying socio-economic backgrounds 
are able to enroll. 



10 



The University has sought to bring together an outstanding, nationally 
recruited faculty, dedicated to excellence in classroom teaching and committed 
to participation in campus life. The leading graduate schools in the country 
are well represented on the Oglethorpe faculty. The student body is one of 
the ablest in the Southeast. 

Lx)oking toward the future, the University will continue to strive to provide 
an excellent academic program, which prepares men and women to exercise 
leadership in their chosen fields and professions and in community affairs.

Admissions 




Admissions 



The admissions policy of Oglethorpe University is based on an individual 
selection process. Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students 
from all sections of the country, as well as from abroad, as candidates for 
degrees. It is the policy of the Admissions Committee to select for admission 
to the University applicants who present strong evidence of purpose, maturity, 
scholastic ability, and probable success at Oglethorpe. 



Freshman Applicants 



Admission to the undergraduate division of the University may be gained 
by presenting evidence of successful completion of secondary school work 
and by providing the results of the College Entrance Examination Board's 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the results of the American College Testing 
Program Assessment (ACT). 

Arrangements to take the SAT or ACT may be made through a secondary 
school guidance counselor or by writing directly to one of the testing agencies. 
For SAT write to the College Board, Box 592, Princeton, New lersey 08540, 
or Box 1025, Berkeley, California 90701. For ACT write to American College 
Testing Program, P.O. Box 451, Iowa City, Iowa 52240. It is to the applicant's 
advantage to take one of the tests late in the junior year or early in the senior 
year of high school. 

Applicants should normally have or be in the process of completing a 
secondary school program including appropriate courses in English, 
mathematics and/or science, and social studies. While an admissions decision 
may be based on a partial secondary school transcript, a final transcript must 
be sent to the admissions office by the candidate's school, showing evidence 
of academic work completed and official graduation. 

The Oglethorpe application contains a reference form and a list of other 
materials which must be submitted by the applicant. No application will be 
considered and acted upon until the items indicated have been received. 

Applications will be considered as they become reviewable, and the 
applicant will be notified of the decision as soon as action has been taken. 



Transfer Students 



Students who wish to transfer to Oglethorpe from other regionally 
accredited colleges are welcome, provided they are in good standing at the 
last institution attended. They are expected to follow regular admissions 
procedures and will be notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee 
in the regular way. 

The same information is required of the transfer student as for the 
entering freshman, with the following exception: 

High school records, test scores, and reference forms are not required 
of students having more than one full year of transferable credit. 

Transfer students must submit transcripts of all current and previous 
college work. A separate official transcript from each college attended must 
be received before any action will be taken on the application. 

17 



Oglethorpe University will accept as transfer credit courses comparable 
to University courses which are applicable to a degree program offered at 
Oglethorpe. A two-year residence requirement is in effect but may be reduced 
to one year by joint decision of the Dean of the Faculty and the chairman 
of the division in which the student will major. Therefore, two years of transfer 
work is the maximum given without such decision, but up to three years of 
transfer work may be granted with such decision. Acceptable work must be 
shown on an official transcript and must be completed with a grade of "C" 
or better. 

TYansfer students on probation or exclusion from another institution will 
not be accepted, with the following exception: 

Students who have not been enrolled in any institution for five years will be 
considered for admission by the Admissions Committee. 

Transfer students having a GPA of less than 2.3 (on a 4.0 scale) will 
automatically be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. 

Oglethorpe does not accept a "D" grade as transfer credit, unless a 
student has graduated from an accredited junior college, or a "D" grade is 
followed by a "C" grade or better in a normal sequence course (e.g.. General 
Biology I and II). 

Ti'ansfer students who have earned the Associate of Arts degree at a 
regionally accredited junior college will be awarded two years of credit. The 
remaining two years of academic credit will be determined by the Dean of 
the Faculty in consultation with the Registrar, the appropriate division 
chairman, and the student, junior college graduates with strong academic 
records are encouraged to apply for admission. 

All financial aid awards and scholarships are open to transfer students 
as well as freshmen. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as many as 30 hours of United States 
Armed Forces Institute (USAF!) credit. Students with at least six months active 
military experience may be granted three hours credit for that experience. 
Students who serve for two years or more may receive six hours credit. 

International Students 

Admission to Oglethorpe is open to qualified students from ail countries. 
Students who are able to provide evidence of suitable academic background, 
adequate financial resources, and seriousness of purpose are eligible to apply. 

All students from countries where English is not the native language 
must meet one of the following requirements to be considered for admission: 

1. Complete level 109 from an ELS, Inc. language center. 

2. Score a minimum of 500 on the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign 
Language).

hours). Special students must meet the following requirements: 

1. Five years since high school attendance. 

2. High school graduate or successful passage of General Education 
Development test. 

19

desires to continue, he will automatically be required to apply for change of 
status to a degree-seeking student and be subject to the same requirements 
as the degree-seeking student. Exception: 

Students already holding a bachelor's degree from an accredited 
institution will not be required to change to degree-seeking status 
unless they desire to work toward another degree at Oglethorpe. 

Students changing from special to regular status are subject to review 
by the Admissions Committee. 

Transient students may take any course offered by the University, 
provided that they secure permission from their current institution certifying 
that the institution will accept for transfer credit the academic work done by 
the student at Oglethorpe. This permission is the responsibility of the transient 
student. 

A letter of good standing or a current transcript must be sent to the 
admissions office before a transient student can be accepted. 

Non-Traditional Students 

Admission to Oglethorpe is not restricted to recent high school graduates 
and transfer students. The University attempts to fulfill its responsibility to 
the entire community by offering admission to non-traditional students. 
Students with a high school diploma, or its equivalent, who have not been 
enrolled in a college or university during the preceding five years are exempt 
from the regular entrance examination requirements. Persons who have never 
completed their undergraduate degrees and wish to resume their study after 
an extended absence are encouraged to apply. 

Admission is offered in the fall, spring, and summer terms. Interviews 
are required to determine the special needs of these students. 

TWo special programs are offered as needed for adults who desire to 
re-enter the academic environment. One is a study skills workshop which

time management, reading improvement, note-taking, and test-taking. The 
other program is a seminar that covers topics like financial planning, personal 
readjustment, child care, values clarification, goal setting, and personal 
affirmation. 

The University is able to offer admission to non-traditional students by 
recognizing their strengths in enthusiasm, motivation, and maturity.

their scores prior to enrollment for evaluation for college credit. The general 
policy of Oglethorpe toward such scores is the following: Academic credit 
will be given in the appropriate area to students presenting advanced place- 
ment grades of 3, 4, or 5; neither credit nor exemption will be given for a 
grade of 2: maximum credit to be allowed to any student for advanced place- 
ment tests will be 30 semester hours. Specific policies are indicated in the

Financial Assistance 




Programs 

Oglethorpe University offers a variety of strategies and resources to lower 
the cost of an Oglethorpe education. All families are urged to complete a 
Family Financial Statement or Financial Aid Form regardless of their income 
level. Our financial aid professionals will then have the information necessary 
to discuss all options available to parents and students. The Family Financial 
Statement (FFS) is the common form by which students may apply for all 
campus-based programs, (Perkins Loans INDSLl, Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grants, College Work-Study) and at the same time, apply for the 
Pell Grant, the Guaranteed Student Loan as well as the Georgia Incentive 
Scholarship, if a resident of Georgia. After filing the Family Financial Statement, 
the student will receive an acknowledgement from American College Testing 
Service and his Student Aid Report for the Pell Grant Program. When the 
Student Aid Report is received, it should be forwarded to the Director of 
Financial Aid. 

A financial aid package may include assistance from any one or more 
of the following sources: 

James Edward Oglethorpe Scholarships provide tuition, room, and 
board for four years of undergraduate study, if scholarship criteria continue 
to be met. Recipients are selected on the basis of an academic competition 
held on campus in the spring of each year. Students must be nominated by 
their secondary schools, must have a combined SAT score of at least 1200 
(ACT 28), a 3.6 or higher cumulative academic grade point average, and a 
superior record of leadership in extracurricular activities either in school or 
in the community. Applications must be received by mid December. 

Oglethorpe Scholars Awards (OSA) Scholarships based on achievement 
are available to students with superior academic ability and special talents 
in important fields of extracurricular activity. The program will include such 
activities as dramatics, publications, both journalistic and literary; elective 
office, including student government; choral performance, religious service, 
social service, and athletics. A fundamental aim of Oglethorpe University is 
to prepare students for leadership roles in society. One way of promoting this 
purpose is to give special recognition to students who demonstrate leadership 
capabilities as undergraduates. Scholarships range upwards from $500. 
Scholarships in excess of one half of annual tuition require the nomination 
by a member of the Oglethorpe faculty or staff. These nominations for superior 
students with good character and leadership capability must attest to 
significant contributions to one of the fields of extra curricular activity. 

Recipients of funds from this program are expected to maintain specified 
levels of academic achievement and to continue to make siginficant 
contributions to their respective activities. Each award is for one year but can 
be renewed on the basis of an annual evaluation of academic and other 
performance factors by the Director of Financial Aid. 

Oglethorpe on-campus employment will be provided to students who 
demonstrate exceptional work experience and skills. The number of positions 
may vary each year. Students should complete the College Employment 
Application in addition to the FFS/FAF 

College Work-Study Program (CWSP) permits a student to earn part 
of his/her educational expenses. The earnings from this program and other 

25 



financial aid cannot exceed the student's financial need. Students eligible for 
this program work part-time on the Oglethorpe campus. 

Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG) is available for Georgia 
residents who attend full-time and seek their degree at Oglethorpe. The program 
was established by an Act of the 1971 Georgia General Assembly. The Georgia 
Higher Education Assistance Authority defines the program in this way: "The 
purpose of the Act is to provide tuition assistance to Georgia resident students 
who are desirous of pursuing their higher education goals in a private Georgia 
college or university but find the financial cost prohibitive due primarily to high 
tuition of these educational institutions in comparison to public schools which 
are branches of the University System of Georgia." All students must complete 
a yearly application and verify their eligibility for the grant. In the 1987-88 school 
year, this grant was $87 5 per academic year. Financial need is not a factor in 
determining eligibility. A separate application is required. 

Georgia Incentive Scholarship (GIS), as defined by the Georgia Student 
Finance Authority is a "program created by an act of the 1974 Georgia General 
Assembly in order to establish a program of need-based scholarships for 
qualified Georgia residents to enable them to attend eligible post-secondary 
institutions of their choice within the state." The scholarship awards are designed 
to provide only a portion of the students resources in financing the total cost 
of post-secondary education. Application requires the student to complete the 
FFS or FAF and to send the information to Oglethorpe and the Georgia Student 
Finance Authority. 

Pell Grant is a federal aid program intended to be the floor in financial 
assistance. Eligibility is based upon a family's financial resources and a rationing 
formula published by the government. Applications for this program may be 
obtained from the Office of Financial Aid or from a high school guidance office. 
This aid is administered in the form of non-repayable grants. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) do not require 
repayment. The size of the grant depends on the need of the individual recipient. 

Perkins Loans (NDSL), are long-term, low-cost educational loans to 
students who have demonstrated need for such assistance. No interest is 
charged and repayment is deferred while the borrower continues as a half- 
time student. Interest is charged at a five per cent annual rate beginning six 
to nine months after the borrower's education ends. These loans are available 
to students who show a demonstrated financial need by applying with either 
the FFS or FAF Students who elect to serve in the Peace Corps, a volunteer 
under Title 1 - Part A of the Domestic Volunteer Service Act, a full-time volunteer 
in a similar tax-exempt organization or in the Armed Forces of the United States 
may be exempt from interest charges and repayment for three years. Cancella- 
tion benefits may be received by teaching in "low income" areas that are 
designated by the Secretary of Education, for teaching handicapped children, 
and for teaching in Head Start Programs. 

Guaranteed Student Loans (GSL) and Federally Insured Student Loans 
(FISL) are long-term loans available through banks, credit unions, and other 
lending institutions. Students must submit the FFS or FAF as well as a separate 
loan application. 

Parent Loans for Undergraduate/Graduate Students and Supplemental 
Loans for Students are relatively long- term loans available through banks, 
credit unions, and other lending institutions. Parents desiring to seek a loan 

26 



from this program should consult with the Office of Financial Aid for additional 
information. 

Ty Cobb Educational Foundation Scholarship Program. Students who 
are residents of Georgia and who have completed at least one year of "B" 
quality or higher work in an accredited college are eligible to apply for Ty 
Cobb Scholarships. Applications from undergraduate students who are married 
will not be considered. The Faculty Scholarship Committee makes 
recommendations for these scholarships each year. 

Dual-degree students in art and engineering may not use Oglethorpe 
assistance to attend other institutions. 

Additional information may be secured from the Office of Financial Aid. 

Eligibility for Federal Student Aid 

Applicants for a Pell Grant, Perkins LjDan, Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, College Work-Study, Guaranteed Student Loan, Parent 
\joan. or Supplemental Ljoan must meet the following criteria: 

1. Student must be a U.S. citizen, national or permanent resident. 

2. Be enrolled on at least half-time basis (6 hours) in a regular degree 
program. 

3. Student must maintain "satisfactory progress" in the course of study. 
Satisfactory progress means that a student must earn 24 semester hours each 
12 months in order to continue receiving financial aid. Part-time students must 
complete a percentage of 24 hours each year. For example, half-time students 
must complete 12 hours. 

Students who have not made satisfactory progress may re-establish their 
eligibility by earning the required 24 hours and obtaining the cumulative grade- 
point average required. All applicants who re-establish their eligibility must 
have an appointment with the Director of Financial Aid prior to receiving 
financial aid again. 

In addition, students must remain in good standing. The following 
standards are used to determine good standing: 

Number of Hours Completed Grade-Point Average Years to Complete 
0-24 1.50 1 

25-35 1.50 2 

36-48 1.75 2 

49-59 1.75 3 

60-72 2.00 3 

73-96 2.00 4 

97-120 2.00 5 

If, at the end of the spring semester, the Director of Financial Aid 
determines that a student has not met the fore-going standards, the student 
will be required to enroll in summer session courses at Oglethorpe to make 
up any deficiency and maintain eligibility. At the end of the summer session, 
financial assistance will be continued only if the student's cumulative grade- 
point average is in compliance with the relevant standard. The requirement 
to attend the summer session may be waived or financial assistance continued 
in spite of non-compliance with eligibility standards, if a student's appeal to 
the Scholarship Committee is accepted. 

4. Students may not be in default on a student loan or obligated to pay 
a refund on a previous federal program. 

27 



5. Establish financial need by filing a Family Financial Statement or 
Financial Aid Form. 

6. Be an undergraduate student who has not previously received a 
Bachelor's degree. Graduate students may apply for financial aid from the 
Perkins Loan, College Work-Study, or Guaranteed Student Loan Programs. 

7. Applicants may not be a member of a religious community, society, 
or order who by direction of his/her community, society, or order is pursuing 
a course of study at Oglethorpe, and who receives support and maintenance 
from his community, society, or order. 



Payment of Awards 



All awards, except college work-study earnings and Guaranteed Student 
Loans, are disbursed to students by means of a direct credit to their account. 
Each semester transfer is dependent upon final approval of the Director of 
Financial Aid. Each student must acknowledge receipt of the awards prior 
to their being credited to a student's account. Only when a student's file is 
complete can aid be transferred to the account. 



Application Procedure 



Students applying for the Georgia TUition Equalization Grant submit a 
separate application which may be obtained from a high school counselor 
or the Office of Financial Aid. An application for admissions is also an 
application for the Oglethorpe Scholars Award. The application procedure 
for all other assistance programs may be determined by contacting the Office 
of Financial Aid. 

The application procedure for the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, Perkins Loan, Guaranteed Student Loan, and College Work- 
Study Program is as follows:

4. Upon receipt of an official award letter, students must notify the Office 
of Financial Aid of their plans for enrollment and reserve accommodations 
by submitting their advance deposit. 



Renewal of Awards 



Renewal applications for all programs are available from the Office of 
Financial Aid. Students must meet the eligibility requirements indicated above 
and file the appropriate applications for each program. Deadline for receipt 
of a completed financial aid file is May L Applicants whose files become 
complete after this time will be considered based upon availability of funds.

sophomores, a 2.75 average; and juniors and seniors, a 3.0 average. Freshmen 
must have earned at least 14 hours credit in fall semester; all others, at least 
29 hours for the past two semesters. The application deadline for reneu/al 
of all scholarship programs is February 1. A cumulative average of 3.2 or higher 
is required for renewal of a scholarship which covers tuition, room, and board; 
a 3.0 or higher average is required for the renewal of tuition only scholarships. 
A student who fails to meet the published criteria for reasons beyond 
his control may request special permission, through appeal, to attend summer 
school to meet the specified criteria. Withdrawal to maintain a grade-point 
average is an insufficient reason for appeal.

who demonstrate leadership capabilities as undergraduates. Scholarships in 
amounts up to full tuition and room and board are awarded to superior 
students with good character and leadership capability who can contribute 
significantly to one of the fields of extracurricular activity. The individual 
amounts of these awards vary. It is the intent of this program to provide the

Navy and Marine Corps 
Reserve Officer Training 



The following program is available to Oglethorpe students on the campus 
of the Georgia Institute of Technology. Interested students should contact the 
chairperson of the Department of Naval Science at the Georgia Institute of 
Technology. 

General Information 

The naval officer education program offers students the opportunity to 
qualify for service as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine 
Corps. The program consists of a standardized curriculum designed to 
complement and assist academic pursuits by imparting knowledge of the naval 
environment and fostering an understanding of the role of the Navy and Marine 
Corps in national security. Upon graduation, the student is commissioned and 
ordered to active duty involving flying, nuclear propulsion, surface warfare 
or to a staff specialty. 

Students in the program are enrolled in one of the three categories out- 
lined below. An orientation period for all new NROTC students is conducted 
during registration week prior to the fall quarter. 

Scholarship Students 

Scholarship students are appointed midshipmen, USNR, after nationwide 
competition. They have their tuition, fees and textbooks paid for by the Navy 
for a period not exceeding four years, are uniformed at government expense 
and receive retainer pay at the rate of $100 per month. Students must obligate 
themselves to complete the prescribed naval science curriculum, to make a 
cruise of from six to eight weeks each summer, to accept a commission as 
Ensign, USN, or Second Lieutenant, USMC, upon graduation, and to serve 
on active duty for four years after commissioning unless released earlier by 
the Navy Department. At the end of this period their active duty obligation 
to the Navy or Marine Corps is fulfilled. If they do not desire to remain on 



37 



active duty in the regular Navy or Marine Corps, they are ordered to inactive 
duty in the Navy or Marine Corps Reserve, 

College Program Students 

College program students are enrolled under the provision of Public Law 
88-647, The college program can be entered during the freshman year or, 
upon qualification, prior to April 1 of the sophomore year. Qualified 
sophomores attend eight weeks of active duty schooling during the summer 
before their junior year so they can join their classmates on an equal footing 
in the junior year naval science classes. Prior to starting the junior year, the 
college program student is required to enlist in the U.S. Naval Reserve for 
a period of six years. The student must agree to serve on active duty for not 
less than three years after appointment to commissioned rank in the U.S. Naval 
Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve and to retain that commission until the sixth 
anniversary of receipt of original commission. 

College program students are uniformed at government expense and, 
during their junior and senior years, receive retainer pay of $100 per month. 
They must complete the prescribed naval science curriculum, make a cruise 
of approximately six weeks during the summer after the junior year, and upon 
graduation accept a commission as Ensign, USNR or Second Lieutenant, 
USMCR. If they desire, after receiving their reserve commission college 
program students may apply for a commission in the regular Navy or Marine 
Corps, 

All college program students are under constant consideration for award 
of a scholarship. Sophomore students who attend the eight weeks of schooling 
during the summer before their junior year may be awarded a scholarship 
on the basis of superior performance during schooling. 

Naval Science Students 

Any regularly enrolled undergraduate student may enroll as a naval 
science student. Those enrolled as naval science students take naval science 
courses as electives and have no contract with the Navy. They have no 
assurance of ultimate commissioning nor do they derive any of the financial 
benefits available to scholarship and college program students. 

Selection Procedure 

Scholarship students are selected in nationwide competition based on 
SAT or ACT scores. The NROTC at Georgia Tech has no part in this selection 
although information about the scholarship program is available. 

The professor of naval science may annually nominate several college 
program students to the Chief of Naval Education and Training for a scholar- 
ship. To apply for the college program, a student must be enrolled at Georgia 
Tech or attending an accredited college or university in the near vicinity and 
be at least 17 and not over 21 years of age. Applicants are selected to fill 
the quota based on physical qualifications, interview by naval officers, score 
on SAT and high school record. Applicants for the college program should 
apply at the Naval Armory during the designated days of freshman orientation 
week for the fall quarter.

Finances 




Fees and Costs 



The fees, costs, and dates listed below are for 1988-89. 

The tuition charged by Oglethorpe University represents only 57 per 
cent of the actual expense of educating each student, the balance coming 
from endowment income, gifts, and other sources. Thus, every Oglethorpe 
undergraduate is the beneficiary of a hidden scholarship. At the same time, 
7 5 per cent of the students are awarded additional financial assistance in the 
form of scholarships, grants, and loans from private, governmental, or 
institutional sources. 

The tuition is $3,500 per semester. Room and board is $1,800 per 
semester. Students who desire single rooms are assessed an additional $400 
per semester. 

The tuition of $3,500 is applicable to all students taking 12-16 semester 
hours. These are classified as full-time students. Students taking less than 12 
hours are referred to the section on Part-Time Fees. Students taking more than 
1 6 hours during a semester are charged $ 1 2 5 for each additional hour. Payment 
of tuition and fees is due two weeks prior to Registration Day each semester. 
Failure to make the necessary payments will result in the cancellation of the 
student's registration. Students receiving financial aid are required to pay the 
difference between the amount of their aid and the amount due by the 
deadline. Students and parents desiring information about various payment 
options should request the pamphlet "Payment Plans." New students who 
require on-campus housing for the fall term are required to submit an advance 
deposit of $200. New commuting students are required to submit an advance 
deposit of $100. Such deposits are not refundable. However, one-half of the 
deposit is credited to the student's account for the fall term. The other half 
is credited to the account for the spring term. 

Upon payment of the room and board fees, each student is covered 
by a basic Health and Accident policy. Coverage begins on the day of 
registration. Full-time students residing off-campus may purchase this insurance 
for $3 5 per year. In addition, any student covered by the basic policy may 
purchase the Major Medical Plan for $50 a year. International students, 
students participating in any intercollegiate sport, and students participating 
in intramural football or basketball are required to have this major medical 
coverage or its equivalent. (Insurance rates are for 1987-88. They will change 
for 1988-89.) 

In addition to tuition and room and board charges, students may be 
required to subscribe to the following: 

1. DAMAGE DEPOSIT A $100 damage deposit is required of all boarding 
students. The damage deposit is refundable at the end of the academic year 
after any charge for damages is deducted. Room keys and other college 
property must be returned and the required checkout procedure completed 
prior to issuance of damage deposit refunds. This deposit is payable at fall 
registration. Students who begin in the spring term must also pay the $100 
damage deposit. 

2. GRADUATING SENIOR: Graduation fee of $60. 

3. LABORATORY FEE: A $3 5 fee is assessed for each laboratory course 
taken.

These schedules do not include the extra cost of single rooms, books 
(approximately $300 per year), or travel and personal expense. All fees are 
subject to change. 

Part-Time Fees 

Students enrolled part-time in day classes during the fall or spring 
semesters will be charged $87 5 per three semester hour course. This rate 
is applicable to those students taking 1 1 semester hours or less. Students taking 
12 to 16 hours are classified full-time. 

Evening and Summer Courses 

Fee schedules for the evening and summer programs are available from 
the Registrar. 



Withdrawal, Drop/Add 



Students who find it necessary to drop courses or add courses must 
secure a drop/add form in the Registrar's Office. The form is the only means 
by which students may change their enrollment. A drop/add form must be 
completed in the Registrar's Office during the drop/add week. After the 
drop/add period, the professor must approve the change in schedule. The 
professor may issue one of the following grades: withdraw passing (W), 
withdraw failing (WF), or may refuse to approve a drop. In order to receive 
a refund, the student must officially drop the class by the end of the twentieth 
class day. 

Students should note that any change of academic schedule must be 
cleared by the Registrar's Office. The date the change is received in the 
Registrar's Office will be the official date for the change. 

If a student misses six consecutive classes in any course, the instructor 
will notify the Registrar's Office and it will be assumed that the student has 
unofficially withdrawn from the course. This does not eliminate the 
responsibility stated above concerning the official withdrawal policy The 
student may receive the grade of withdrawal passing, withdrawal failing, or 
failure due to excessive absences. This policy has direct implications for 
students receiving benefits from the Veterans Administration and other federal 

43 



agencies as these agencies must be notified when a student misses six 
consecutive classes. This will result in an automatic decrease in payments to 
the student. Reinstatement in a course is at the discretion of the instructor. 
If a student must withdraw from the University, an official withdrawal 
form must be obtained from the Registrar. The Dean of the Faculty and the 
Director of Financial Aid must sign the withdrawal form. The date the 
completed withdrawal form is submitted to the Registrar will be the official 
date for withdrawal. 

Refunds 

The establishment of a refund policy is based on the University's 
commitment to a fair and equitable refund of tuition and other charges 
assessed. While the University advances this policy it should not be interpreted 
as a policy of convenience for students to take lightly their responsibility'and 
their commitment to the University The University has demonstrated a 
commitment by admitting and providing the necessary programs for all 
students and expects students to reciprocate that commitment. 

Since the premium for insurance coverage is not retained by the 
University it will not be refunded after registration day Since room and board 
services are consumed on a daily basis, during the period when tuition is 
to be refunded on a 100% basis, the room and board refund will be pro rata 
on a daily basis. After the 100% tuition refund period, room and board refunds 
revert to the same schedule as tuition refunds. All other fees except the 
advanced deposit are subject to the refund schedule. 

The date which will be used for calculation of a refund for withdrawal 
or drop/add will be the date on which the Registrar receives the official form 
signed by all required personnel. All students must follow the procedures for 
withdrawal and drop/add in order to receive a refund. Students are reminded 
that all changes in their academic program must be cleared through the 
Registrar; and arrangement with a professor will not be recognized as an official 
change of schedule. 

All tuition refund requests will be processed at the conclusion of the 
fourth week of classes. Payment will take a minimum of two weeks, but will 
be no longer than 40 days. 

In the following schedules, "class day" means any day during which the 
University conducts classes. 

Refund Schedule 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 7th class day 100% 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 10th class day 75% 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 16th class day 50% 

Changes in schedule by the end of the 20th class day 2 5%

Leadership Development 



Oglethorpe University seeks to prepare its students for roles of leader- 
ship in society. Specific educational experiences are planned to help the 
student acquire the skills of leadership. 

Education for leadership must be based on the essential academic 
competencies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Though widely neg- 
lected today at all levels of education, these are the prerequisites for effec- 
tive leadership. They are the marks of an educated person. Oglethorpe insists 
that its students achieve advanced proficiency in these skills. In addition, stu- 
dents are offered specific preparation in the arts of leadership. Such arts 
include an appreciation of constructive values, the setting of goals, public 
speaking, human relations, and organizational skills. 

This philosophy presents an excellent opportunity for the able young 
person who is striving for a significant life, including leadership in the improve- 
ment of our community and our society. 

Orientation and the Freshman Seminar 

Oglethorpe University wishes to provide each student with the oppor- 
tunity to make a successful adjustment to college life. Because we take pride 
in our tradition of close personal relationships, we have organized an orien- 
tation program to provide these relationships, as well as much needed infor- 
mation about the University. 

The program has been developed to assist students through small group 
experiences. Information is disseminated which acquaints the student with 
the academic program and the extracurricular life of the campus community. 
Thorough understanding of the advising system, the registration process, 
library use, class offerings, and study demands is sought. Alternatives for self 
expression outside the classroom are also presented to the new student. 

To supplement the student's orientation experience, a Freshman Seminar 
is held during the first semester. Topics discussed during these sessions are 
designed to meet the needs of the entering student and to help the student 
assimilate his college experiences. Freshman students, having completed the 
orientation program and Freshman Seminar, are better prepared to understand 
and appreciate their educational development. 

Student Rights and Responsibilities 

Students of Oglethorpe have specific rights and responsibilities. Among 
the rights are the right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, the 
right to the presumption of innocence and procedural fairness in the 
administration of discipline and the right to access to personal records. 

Oglethorpe University is a community within the wider community. As 
such, students are expected to maintain high standards of conduct. They 
should respect the privacy and feelings of others and the property of both 
students and the University. Students are expected to display behavior which 
is not disruptive of campus life or of the surrounding community. Students 
represent the University on and off campus. Students whose actions show 

46 



that they have not accepted this responsibility wi 
action as set forth in The "O" Book.

The four fraternities are Chi Phi, Delta Sigma Phi, Kappa Alpha, and Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon. The national sororities are Chi Omega and Sigma Sigma Sigma.

social betterment of the individual and develop college into a richer, fuller 
experience. Membership in these organizations is voluntary and subject to 
regulations established by the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council,

Athletic Policy 



At Oglethorpe University the students who participate in intercollegiate 
competition are considered to be students first and athletes second. All 
students engaged in athletics must satisfy the same academic requirements 
as other students. There are no scholarships which are based solely or primarily 
on the athletic ability of the student. However, Oglethorpe provides a program 
of Oglethorpe Scholars Awards which are described in another section of this 
bulletin. Many students who are interested in sports and are superior 
academically can qualify for this form of assistance. 



Athletics 



Oglethorpe University offers intercollegiate competition in basketball, 
cross country soccer, and tennis for men; and in cross country tennis, and 
volleyball for women. 

In addition to the intercollegiate competition, a well-rounded program 
of intramural sports is offered and has strong participation by the student 
body Men and women participate in flag football, tennis, volleyball, basketball, 
and Softball. 

Cultural Opportunities on Campus 

There are numerous cultural oppportunities for students outside the 
classroom. The University Program Committee sponsors concerts, theatrical 
productions, poetry readings, and lectures by visiting scholars. The Oglethorpe 
University Singers perform frequently during the year, including seasonal 
events. They often feature guest artists. The Art Gallery on the third floor of 
Lowry Hall, sponsors exhibitions as well as lectures on associated subjects 

48 



and frequent concerts in the gallery. The Oglethorpe University Players also 
stage several productions each year. TWo annual events, the Oglethorpe Night 
of the Arts and International Night, provide a showcase for campus talent. 
The former presents student literary, musical, and visual arts. The latter features 
international cuisine and entertainment. The Georgia Shakespeare Festival 
which takes place on campus during the summer is also a valuable cultural 
asset to the Oglethorpe community. 

Cooperative Education/Internships 

Experiential off-campus learning is a major component of the 
educational process at Oglethorpe. Beginning in the sophomore year, students 
can opt to further refine their career plans through cooperative education 
and internships. These programs provide practical experience to complement 
the academic program, as well as give students the opportunity to test the 
reality of their career decisions and gain work experience in their major fields 
of interest. 

Cooperative education and internship experiences are available to 
students in all academic programs. Opportunities can be arranged in business, 
government, education, public relations, publishing, social services, and health 
care institutions. 



Counseling 



The counseling services at Oglethorpe provide confidential, professional 
assistance and referrals for students experiencing psychological or social 
problems. Though academic advising is the responsibility of individually 
assigned faculty mentors, students encountering unusual academic difficulties 
may wish to consult a counselor regarding possible contributing factors. 
Assistance in developing effective study skills is also available both in special 
workshops and, if needed, in individual conferences. Psychological tests are 
sometimes utilized in conjunction with the counseling process when 
circumstances indicate that these would be helpful. Referrals to the University 
Chaplain for pastoral counseling are made at the student's request. 

Career Planning and Placement 

The Career Planning and Placement Office offers a four year program 
of career development for students whose goals are an awareness of career 
and lifestyle options, the ability to make informed career decisions, and the 
development of job search strategies. The office helps students attain these 
goals by providing individual counseling, interest inventories, and self- 
assessment aids (including SIGI-PLUS, a computer assisted career guidance 
program), workshops on career fields and decision-making as well as job-search 
workshops on such topics as resume writing and interviewing techniques. 

In addition, a number of prospective employers and graduate schools 

send recruiters to the campus each year for the purpose of conducting on- 

campus interviews. Current information on permanent, summer, and part-time 

job opportunities is made available to students and alumni. A career 

information library containing information on a wide variety of companies 

and career opportunities is also maintained.

Opportunities in Atlanta 



Oglethorpe is located eight miles from downtown Atlanta and just two 
miles from the city's largest shopping center. A nearby rapid transit station 
makes transportation quick and efficient. This proximity to the South's most 
vibrant city offers students a great variety of cultural and entertainment 
opportunities. There are numerous excellent restaurants and clubs in nearby 
Buckhead. Downtown Atlanta offers professional baseball, football and 
basketball to sports fans as well as frequent popular concerts. The Atlanta

Housing and Meals 



The residence halls are available to all full-time day students. There are 
four men's residence halls and three women's halls. Each complex has a 
Resident Director and a staff of student Resident Assistants. 

All students living in the residence halls are required to participate in 
the University meal plan. Meals are served in the Emerson Student Center. 
Nineteen meals are served each week. No breakfast is served on Saturday 
or Sunday, instead a brunch is served from mid-morning until early afternoon.

registration. 



50 



Health Service 



All resident students subscribe to a Basic Student Accident and Sickness 
Insurance Plan provided by the University. Full-time students living off campus 
may purchase this insurance, in addition, any student covered under the basic 
policy may purchase an optional Major Medical Plan for an additional charge. 

The University maintains a small health center staffed by a registered 
nurse. The health center operates on a regular schedule and provides basic 
first aid service and limited medical assistance for students. 

A physician visits the health center twice a week to make general diag- 
nosis and treatment. In the event additional or major medical care is required, 
the student patient will be referred to medical specialists and hospitals in the 
area with which the health service maintains a working relationship. 

When it is determined that a students physical or emotional health is 
detrimental to his academic studies, group-living situation, or other relation- 
ships at the University or in the community, the student will be requested 
to withdraw. Readmission to the University will be contingent upon acceptable 
verification that the student is ready to return. The final decision will rest with 
the University. 

International Student Services 

The Foreign Student Office, which is located in the Emerson Student 
Center, exists to meet the needs of international students. Through a specially 
designed orientation program and on-going contacts, the new foreign student 
is assisted in the process of adjustment to life at an American college. Special 
tours, host family programs, and social occasions are available to ensure that 
students can benefit fully from cross cultural experiences. The Foreign Student 
Advisor helps students with questions related to their immigration status.

Academic Regulations 
and Policies 




Registration 



New students select courses in consultation with faculty advisers to 
whom they are assigned on their initial registration day. Schedule planning 
and course selection for following semesters are accomplished during pre- 
registration week. Students should make appointments to consult with their 
academic advisers during preregistration. Summer schedules are planned 
during preregistration week in the spring semester. 

The official registration period precedes the first day of classes. Every 
student must complete the various steps of the registration process during 
this period. Those who have preregistered are able to pick up a copy of their 
course schedule at the first station of registration and thereby bypass the 
station at which proposed course schedules are computer processed by 
Registrar's Office personnel. All other stations must be completed by pre- 
registered students. 



Academic Advising 



Each student consults with a member of the faculty in preparing course 
schedules, discussing post-graduation plans, and inquiring about any other 
academic matter. A student's adviser or "mentor" is assigned at the time of 
the student's initial enrollment. The faculty adviser is each student's primary 
point of contact with the University 

To change advisers a student must complete the following procedural 
steps: 

1) Ask the proposed "new " faculty adviser for permission to be added 
to the faculty member's advisee list. 

2) Ask the current adviser to send his or her student file to the faculty 
member who has agreed to be the student's new adviser. 

3) Ascertain that the new adviser has received the file and has sent an 
Adviser Change notice to the Registrar's Office. 

This is the only method for changing academic advisers. 

When the student decides on a major field, he or she should change 
advisers, if necessary, to a faculty member who has teaching responsibilities 
in the student's major field. 



Attendance 



Regular attendance at class sessions, laboratories, examinations, and 
official University convocations is an obligation which all students are expected 
to fulfill. 

Faculty members set specific attendance policies in their course syllabi. 



Grading 



Faculty members report letter grades for students at the end of each 
semester. These grades become part of the student's official record. Once 
entered, a grade may not be changed except by means of an officially executed 
Change of Grade form. 

55 



A student's cumulative grade-point average (GPA) is calculated by di- 
viding the number of semester hours of work the student has attempted into 
the total number of quality points earned. 

The letter grades used at Oglethorpe are defined as follows:

to the Registrar's Office) or withdrawal from the University. 

In the case of an emergency departure from the campus as a result of 
which withdrawal forms have not been executed, the Registrar's Office verifies

source of such work. One has the responsibility of avoiding plagiarism by 
taking adequate notes on reference materials used in the preparation of 
reports, papers, and other coursework. The instructor decides if there is 
substantial and convincing evidence that an incident of willful and flagrant 
plagiarism has occurred. 

II. Penalties for Academic Fraud 

If the instructor believes that there is substantial and convincing evidence 
that an incident of academic fraud has occurred, the student is assigned 
an 'F " in the relevant course and the instructor delivers written notification 
to the Dean of the Faculty of such action. The Dean of the Faculty informs 
the student by letter that the student is suspended from the University for 
the next full semester. Students may not register for summer session courses 
at Oglethorpe while suspended. Coursework taken at another college during 
the period of suspension is not acceptable as transfer credit at Oglethorpe. 
A student suspended for academic fraud may not take part in any University 
activities nor frequent the campus. 

Upon notification of suspension the student may request a review of the 
evidence of academic fraud by an ad hoc Evidence Review Committee 
composed of: 

1) Dean of the Faculty. 

2) The student's academic adviser. 

3) T^o faculty members appointed by the Dean of the Faculty. 

4) Three students selected by the president of the Olgethorpe Student 
Association. (In the absence of the president, the vice-president shall 
select the students.) 

The Evidence Review Committee's task is to decide whether the evidence 
of academic fraud is convincing enough to constitute proof beyond a 
reasonable doubt of a violation. 

The second academic fraud offense will result in the student's expulsion. 
Again, the student may ask an ad hoc Evidence Review Committee to decide 
whether the evidence presented constitutes proof beyond a reasonable 
doubt of a violation. 

Access to Students Records 

To comply with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974, com- 
monly called the Buckley Amendment, Oglethorpe University informs students 
of their rights under this act in the student handbook, The "O" Qook. Three 
basic rights are covered by this act: (I) The student's right to have access to 
personal records, (2) the right of a hearing to challenge the content of a record, 
and (3) the right to withhold or give consent for the release of identifying data. 
60 



Additional information may be obtained from The "O" Qook and from the 
Registrar. 



Semester System 



T\vo semesters constitute the regular academic year. Several day and 
evening sessions are offered in the summer. 

Division of Continuing Education 

The University's Division of Continuing Education offers a variety of edu- 
cational opportunities to adults in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Included 
are credit courses in the liberal arts and business, non-credit courses, and 
educational experiences designed to meet the specific needs of employers, 
of organizations, and members of vocational groups. 

Continuing Education Degree Program 

An evening-weekend credit program serves two groups: those who wish 
to take a limited number of courses for special purposes and those who desire 
to earn baccalaureate degrees. Degree programs are offered in Accounting, 
Business Administration, Business Administration and Computer Science, 
Business Administration and Behavioral Science, Economics, and the 
Individually Planned Major. Classes meet two nights a week (Monday and 
Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday) and on Saturday mornings. The 
academic year is divided into three full terms — fall, spring and summer — 
and an abbreviated term in May. To qualify for the special tuition rates offered 
continuing education students, a student must take all courses in the evening 
or on Saturdays. 

Non-Credit Course Program 

The Division of Continuing Education serves as the University's 
community service arm, providing non-credit courses for adults. The two non- 
credit programs are the Learn and Live courses for personal enrichment, and 
the Certificate in Management Development program offered in cooperation 
with the American Management Association Extension Institution. Classes 
meet on weekday evenings and Saturdays in fall, winter, spring, and 
summer terms. 

Human Resource Development 

Training needs of business, industry, government, and vocational groups 
in the north Atlanta area are met through individually designed seminars, 
workshops, and conferences. Emphasis is placed on training for managers, 
with a Certificate in Management awarded to individuals who complete the 
prescribed course of study. 

Additional information is available from Dean of Continuing Education 
at (404) 233-6662.

Courses of Study 

In the following section courses are listed numerically by discipline within 
their respective divisions. Most courses are designated by a four-digit number. 
The first digit indicates the level of the course. I = freshman level, 2 = 
sophomore level, 3 = junior level, 4 = senior level, and 6 = graduate level. 
Higher level courses in a discipline are typically designed to build upon the 
content of lower level courses in that discipline and other specified prerequisite 
courses. 

In some cases, the letter C, L, or P replaces the first digit in the course 
number. C indicates that the course fulfills a core requirement. L means 
laboratory: P means that the course is a preliminary course to the required 
core course in that discipline. 

The number of hours refers to the semester hours of college credit per 
semester which are earned by the successful completion of the course. 



Major Programs 



Completion of a major program is required for all baccalaureate degrees. 
The student's academic adviser assists with the students selection of a major. 
The student declares the major selected on the course registration form 
completed each semester. Students must have declared a major by the end 
of the second semester of the sophomore year. 

A major is an orderly sequence of courses in 1) a particular discipline, 
2) a combination of two disciplines, or 3) a defined interdisciplinary field. A 
major must include a minimum of 33 and a maximum of 62 semester hours 
of required coursework, exclusive of all hours used to satisfy core requirements. 
Each major must allow for the student's selection of courses which are not 
in the discipline(s) of the major and not required components of the core 

65 



curriculum. Each major includes a substantial component of advanced courses 
which have specified prerequisites. A major may require for successful 
completion a cummulative grade point average in the major field which is 
higher than the 2.0 cummulative grade point average required for graduation. 
Alternatively, the requirements for the major may state that only courses in 
which a "C" or higher grade is received may be offered in satisfaction of the 
major's requirements. The student is responsible for ensuring the fulfillment 
of the requirements of the major selected. Specific requirements for each of 
the majors listed below are indicated in the section of the Bulletin in which 
the course offerings of the discipline are described or in the sections which 
state the requirements of individually planned and interdisciplinary majors. 
Please note that no course may be used to meet more than one degree 
requirement. 

The clinical training component of the medical technology major must 
be completed in an approved health sciences program at a cooperating 
institution (see p. 109).

Senior Honours Option 



luniors who have achieved a 3.3 or higher cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) and a 3.5 or higher GPA in courses completed in a particular discipline 
may apply to undertake an honours project in that discipline during their senior 
year. 

Junior Year 

At the end of the first semester of the student's junior year, the student 
asks a professor to act as the TUtor for an honours project. If the faculty 
member agrees to do so, the Tlitor and student decide on a list of preparatory 
readings. The student becomes familiar with the works on the list during the 
second semester of the junior year prior to registering for the initial semester 
of honours work. 

Senior Year 

In order to register for honours work during the first semester of the 
senior year, the student reports to the Tlitor on work done on the reading 
list and on topic definition. If the TUtor is satisfied that the student is prepared 
to begin a research program, the TUtor initials the course entitled, (Discipline's 
Name] — Independent Study 1, 2 semester hours. 

Early in the semester, and no later than mid-semester, the honours stu- 
dent presents a research prospectus to the Tlitor, which, when approved by 
the Tlitor, is presented to the division chairperson for review. The division 
chairperson reviews the prospectus and, if it is approved, recommends two 
readers for the project — one or more of whom may be outside the division. 
The Tutor seeks the agreement of the recommended readers to serve in that 
capacity and reports back to the division chairperson. 

At the end of the semester the TUtor grades the student's work for the 
semester. The student should have completed the research specified in the 
prospectus and have an outline of the paper to be written. The student may 
take a second semester of honours work only if an "A" is received for the 
initial semester's work. Those who receive a "B" or lower grade will be asked 
to withdraw from the honours program. 

A continuing honours student registers for (Discipline's Name) — Indepen- 
dent Study II, I semester hour, for the second semester of the senior year. 
A first draft of the paper should be ready for review by the TUtor prior to 
mid-semester. After revisions and corrections, the final version is read by the 
TUtor and the two faculty members who have agreed to act as readers. The 
TUtor and readers consult on the grade for the paper. If they are unable to 
reach agreement, the division chairperson will be asked to participate in the 
consultations. Only an 'A" paper constitutes successful completion of the 
honours program. The credit hours earned in the honours program may be 
counted as academic credit in the discipline in which the work was done. 

Students who successfully complete the program have inscribed on their 
diplomas "Honours in (Discipline's Name). The honours program should not be 
confused with overall academic honors, which are announced at the com- 
mencement ceremony and are based only on the student's cumulative grade 
point average (see Degrees with Academic Honors, above). Students interested 
in an honours project should consult with a faculty member in the field in 
which they seek to do the project. 

67 



Dual Degree Program in Art 



Students seeking a broadly based educational experience involving the 
types of programs generally found at a college of arts and sciences as well 
as the specialized training offered by a professional college may wish to 
consider the dual degree program in art. Oglethorpe University and The 
Atlanta College of Art (ACA) offer a joint program for students interested in 
a career in the visual arts. In this program, the student enrolls at Oglethorpe 
for two years, completes 61 semester hours of work, including the core 
requirements, and then enrolls at The Atlanta College of Art. The dual degree 
program requires nine semesters to complete (AV2 regular academic years). 

The student is required to complete three credit hours in Art 
Appreciation and at twelve credit hours in studio electives at Oglethorpe. Upon 
successful completion of all of the core requirements plus the aforementioned 
art courses, the student enrolls at The Atlanta College of Art and completes 
75 credit hours in studio and art history courses. Placement in studio courses 
is dependent on a portfolio review. 

Upon completion of the joint program, the student receives the degree 
of Bachelor of Arts from Oglethorpe and the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts 
from The Atlanta College of Art. Students participating in the dual degree 
program must meet the entrance requirements of both institutions. Dual 
degree students are advised at Oglethorpe by a faculty member in the field 
of visual arts. 

Dual Degree Program in Engineering 

Oglethorpe is associated with the Georgia Institute of Technology, the 
University of Florida, and Auburn University in combined programs of liberal 
arts and engineering. The programs require the student to complete three 
years at Oglethorpe University and the final two years at one of the engineering 
schools. The three years at Oglethorpe include general education courses and 
prescribed courses in mathematics and the physical sciences. The two years 
of technical education require the completion of courses in one of the branches 
of engineering. 

In this combined plan, the two degrees which are awarded upon the 
successful completion of the program are the degree of Bachelor of Arts by 
Oglethorpe University and the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering 
by the engineering school. Because the required pre-engineering curricula 
of the three affiliated schools are slightly different, the student is advised to 
consult frequently with the faculty member serving as dual degree engineering 
program adviser. 



Individually Planned Major 



A student who wishes to pursue a course of study not comprehended 
in one of the available majors may petition to receive permission to complete 
an individually planned major. Such a major must include at least 33 semester 
hours of coursework beyond core requirements. 

At least 18 semester hours of the major must be completed in courses 
above the introductory level in a particular field. This field will be defined 

68 




as the major's principal field. Graded coursework in the major must average 
at least 2.0. A student may not simultaneously receive a major or minor in 
the principal field of the individually planned major. 

To apply for an individually planned major, the student, in consultation 
with his or her academic adviser, must complete an application to be reviewed 
by the academic dean and the chairperson of the division in which the 
proposed major's principal field is included. This application should be 
submitted by the end of the second semester of the student's sophomore 
year. The application must specify the following: 

1. The major's coverage and definition. 

2. The observed or expected conceptual linkages among the principal 
field and the other subject(s) included in the major. 

3. The expected outcomes of the completion of the major in terms of 
the student's intellectual growth and plans for graduate study 
or career. 

The student's academic adviser forwards the application to the 
appropriate division chairperson. The chairperson consults with the academic 
dean. The chairperson notifies the faculty adviser of the acceptance or 
rejection of the proposal, and the adviser contacts the student. 

The degree awarded upon successful completion of an approved 
individually planned major is Bachelor of Arts. 



Premedical Program 



A student who plans to attend a professional school of medicine, 
dentistry, optometry, pharmacy or veterinary medicine should plan a program 
of studies at Oglethorpe in consultation with a faculty member who is a 
designated premedical adviser. It is desirable for the premedical student to 
begin the process of undergraduate program planning with a premedical 
adviser. It is essential that contact be established by the second semester 
of the student's freshman year. 

Professional schools of health science require for admission successful 
completion of a specified sequence of courses in the natural sciences as well 
as the submission of acceptable scores on appropriate standardized tests. 

69 



However; premedical students have a wide latitude of choice with regard to 
the major selected. Students should familiarize themselves with the particular 
admission requirements of the type of professional school they plan to enter 
prior to deciding on the course of study to be pursued at Oglethorpe. 

The professional option is available to highly qualified students seeking 
admission to appropriately accredited colleges of medicine, dentistry and vet- 
erinary medicine. This option allows students to enter their respective 
professional schools at the end of their junior year. Credit is awarded at 
Oglethorpe for the successful completion of the first year of professional 
school (see Degrees, above). 

Allied Health Studies 

Students who plan to attend professional schools of nursing, physical 
therapy or other allied health fields should plan their programs at Oglethorpe 
with the assistance of the faculty member serving as the Allied Health Adviser. 
The name of this adviser can be obtained at the Registrar's office. 

In allied health fields, successful completion of the program in an 
accredited professional school and a minimum of 60 semester hours credit 
earned at Oglethorpe are required to earn the Bachelor of Arts degree with 
an individually planned major in two relevant disciplines. 



Prelegal Program 



Students planning to enter law school after graduation from Oglethorpe 
should realize that neither the American Bar Association nor leading law 
schools endorse a particular prelaw major. The student is advised, however, 
to take courses that enhance the basic skills of a liberally educated person: 
reading with comprehension, writing, speaking, and reasoning. The student 
is encouraged to become more familiar with political, economic, and social 
institutions as they have developed historially and as they function in 
contemporary society. Students are referred to the Prelaw Handbook, which is 
available in the University bookstore, for a more complete discussion of the 
desirable aspects of a prelaw curriculum. 

Students interested in pursuing a legal career should ask the Registrar 
for the names of faculty members serving as prelaw advisers. 



Preseminary 



Preseminary students should plan a curriculum with emphasis on phi- 
losophy religion, English, and foreign language courses. A faculty adviser will 
aid in the selection of a particular field of study. For further guidance, the 
chairman of the humanities division makes available a list of courses recom- 
mended by the American Association of Theological Schools. Juniors and 
seniors are encouraged to take an internship related to their course work. 

Internships and Cooperative Education 

Oglethorpe University offers two on-the-job learning programs: Co- 
operative Education and Internships. These programs provide students with 

70 



the opportunity to have an employment experience designed to promote their 
professional and personal growth. They also allow students to explore par- 
ticular career options. 

Opportunities are available in all majors for students who (1) demonstrate 
a clear understanding of the goals they wish to accomplish in the experience 
and (2) possess the necessary academic and personal background to 
accomplish these goals. 

Cooperative Education 

Cooperative Education is a non-credit program in which students 
alternate semesters of work and study until graduation. Students begin the 
co-op experience in their junior year. Opportunites are available with major 
employers in the Atlanta area. 

Internships 

Students may qualify to begin an internship experience in the sophomore 
year. Every internship requires a statement of academic objectives and 
requirements developed in consultation with the student's faculty adviser 
and/or faculty internship supervisor. Upon successful completion of the 
internship, the student is awarded academic credit in recognition of the 
learning value of the experience. 

Students who are interested in a co-operative education or internship 
experience should first consult with their faculty adviser and then visit the 
Office of Placement, Internship, and Cooperative Education in Lupton Hall. 



Cross Registration 



Oglethorpe University is a member of the University Center in Georgia, 
a consortium of institutions of higher education in the Atlanta/Athens area. 
Through the University Center, students may enroll in courses at any other 
member institution. The student need not be admitted to the other institution 
and completes all procedures, including payment of tuition, at Oglethorpe. 

Interested students should consult the Registrar for program details. 



Interdisciplinary Majors 



Interdisciplinary majors are offered in American Studies, Business Ad- 
ministration and Behavioral Science, Business Administration and Computer 
Science, International Studies, and Mathematics and Computer Science. 
Students who choose one of these majors should notify the Registrar so that 
an appropriate adviser may be assigned. 



American Studies 



The major in American Studies is designed to provide students with the 
opportunity to develop a systematic and in-depth understanding of American 
culture. By combining American studies courses and courses from relevant 
disciplines (history, literature, the arts, economics, and the social sciences) 
students may explore the relationships of diverse aspects of American life. 
Students are also able to pursue their special interests within American culture 
by developing an "area of concentration " that provides a specific focus for 

71 



much of the work completed in fulfillment of major requirements. 

In addition to introducing students to the field of American studies, the 
major is designed to help students refine their fundamental intellectual skills, 
especially their writing and speaking skills. Skills of this sort will serve the 
student well long after many specific facts, postulates, and theories have been 
forgotten. In short, as is consistent with Oglethorpe's stated institutional 
purpose, the American studies program seeks to prepare humane generalists 
— individuals who possess those basic qualities so necessary for leadership 
in a rapidly changing world. 

The Requirements of the Major Include: 

1. The completion of the following eleven courses: 
2141 The American Experience

to be taken in the junior and senior years. A "C" average in major coursework 
is required for graduation. The degree awarded is the Bachelor of Arts. 



72 



Business Administration and 
Behavorial Science 



This major provides students with the knowledge and skills of the 
behavorial sciences as they may be applied in the business world. The major 
helps to prepare students for careers in business, especially those related to 
human resources, or for graduate study in business administration and applied 
psychology. 

The major consists of 1 1 required courses and four directed electives. 
The four directed electives should be carefully selected with the assistance 
of the faculty adviser and must be evenly divided between business adminis- 
tration courses and courses in behavorial sciences. A "C" average in course-

combining courses in business administration and computer science, this inter- 
disciplinary major acquaints students with the ways in which computer systems 
can assist in carrying out the accounting, finance, marketing, and management 
functions of business. An additional aim is to encourage innovative approaches 
to administration that would be impractical without the computational capacity 
of the computer. 

The major requires completion of sixteen courses; thirteen specified

International Studies 

International Studies is an interdisciplinary major which seeks to develop 
74 



skills and perspectives essential to effective participation in the emerging multi- 
cultural business and social environment. The major helps to prepare students 
for careers in international commerce, the travel and convention businesses, 
international banking and finance, and government. The major also provides 
an appropriate undergraduate background for the professional study of 
business, public policy, and law. Students interested in this major should ask 
the Registrar to refer them to a faculty adviser who specializes in this major. 
The degree awarded is the Bachelor of Arts. 

The Requirements of the Major Include: 

1. The completion of the following five requirements (including prerequisites): 
None of these courses may be used to fulfull a core requirement.

university is the preferred method for fulfilling this requirement. Students 
may plan to complete requirement (3), above, during their study abroad 
experience. 

Oglethorpe University maintains an affiliation with the American 

Institute for Foreign Study to aid students in identifying worthwhile foreign 

study opportunities. Advisers who specialize in the international studies 

major can acquaint students with a wide variety of foreign study programs. 

Cultural Studies of Europe 1 & II or Eastern Studies 1 & II may be 

offered to satisfy this requirement.

which the language of instruction was not English may satisfy the 

language requirement, (3), with English as a Second Language I & 11. 

They may satisfy the study abroad requirement, (4), via their residency 

in the United States. 

Mathematics/Computer Science 

Since its inception as an academic discipline, computer science has been 
closely associated with mathematics. Many of the fields pioneers are mathe- 
maticians by training. Indeed, modern computer science would not be possible 

75 



without the existence of a number of mathematical developments once 
thought to be entirely theoretical in nature. 

The major in Mathematics and Computer Science is designed to acquaint 
students with the various linkages between computer science and mathematics 
and to enable students to understand more thoroughly their primary discipline, 
whether it is mathematics or computer science. Rigorous training in 
mathematical thinking will provide the student with essential analytical tools 
and mental discipline, while the problem-solving skills that will be sharpened 
in the process of developing algorithms for computer applications will prove 
to be beneficial to students of mathematics. Students will become familiar 
with ways in which modern computational tools have made possible work 
in mathematics that would otherwise be prohibitively laborious. Understand- 
ing of the many mathematical structures that are essential to effective 
development and utilization of processes in computer science will be 
enhanced. The degree awarded is the Bachelor of Science.

Odethorpe 
MJniversity 



Division I 
The Humanities 




English 



In literature courses, students examine written works to determine their 
meaning, to reach judgments about their value, to explore their relation to 
life, and to derive pleasure. To these ends, students make written and oral 
analyses, supporting their conclusions with close examination of specific 
passages from the works of literature being studied. In both literature and 
writing courses, students learn to compose their generalizations and 
supporting details into a coherent structure of thought and language. 

An English major at Oglethorpe is excellent preparation for law school 
or any other professional training that requires students to interpret written 
material, and support their assertions with specific evidence. Given the 
expressed need in the business community for people who can communicate 
well orally and on paper, the combination of an English major and courses 
in business administration or an accounting minor may be very attractive to 
prospective employers. The course Advanced Writing focuses on the kinds 
of speaking and writing abilities graduates will need to get and keep jobs in 
personnel, sales, and management. Our graduates also work in public relations 
and editing, where they use their skill with words - a major emphasis of every 
English course. They go into teaching, and sometimes work for publishers, 
TV. stations, film-making companies, or computer firms. They write press 
releases, training manuals, in-house newspapers, and news copy. 

To help students bridge the gap between academic life and work 
experience, Oglethorpe places English majors in internships with area 
newspapers, printing companies, public relations firms, cultural associations, 
and radio and TV. stations. Such experiences enhance students' chances of 
finding the jobs they want after graduation.

Division II 

History and 

Political Studies 




History 

The study of history introduces students to important events of the past 
and the people who played significant roles in them. Embracing the principal 
fields of liberal education, the study of history enlarges one's understanding 
of political organizations, economic arrangements, social institutions, religious 
experiences and the various forms of intellectual expression. An appreciation 
for the Western heritage is one of its main objectives. 

Course offerings at Oglethorpe are divided about equally between 
European and American history. In each of these areas, two-semester surveys 
are studied at the freshman and sophomore levels respectively. Western 
Civilization I and II, the freshman level survey courses, are required for 
graduation. In the second sequence, American History I and II, either one 
is an optional core requirement bracketed with courses in political studies. 
Above the sophomore level, period and topical courses are roughly divided 
between the European and American branches of the discipline. 

The history faculty at Oglethorpe University seeks to make its students 
aware of the constantly changing interpretations of the past and acquaint them 
with the increasing uses of the discipline in such fields as law, journalism, public 
relations, art, theology, diplomacy and public service. Particular stress is placed 
on a mastery of the techniques of research which enhance one's usefulness 
in many fields of professional life. Archival careers and postgraduate studies 
in history are options with which Oglethorpe students become familiar. 

Major 

Students majoring in history are required to take a minimum of eight 
of the courses listed below, exclusive of courses used to meet core 
requirements. Of these eight, at least two European history and two American 
history courses are required. Each student is required to take five courses 
in political studies or other related field. Students who plan to attend graduate 
school should take at least two courses in a foreign language.

Political Studies 

Political studies is the name given to the discipline at Oglethorpe that 
seeks to understand what political institutions do and why, as well as what 
they ought to be doing and do not. At other colleges, these questions are 
pursued under such rubrics as "politics," and "government," and "political 
science." At Oglethorpe, we call the discipline political studies in the belief 
that it is an open question whether we are "governed" or subjected to 
"politics," and that the most important questions, including normative ones, 
often cannot be answered by methods borrowed from the natural sciences. 
Thus the political studies faculty avoid a heavy emphasis on quantitative 
methods, though students are certainly encouraged to learn them if they so 
desire. Rather, the focus is on the interpretation of events, both past and 
current, from a perspective informed by the study of political thought and 
institutions. In addition, students in this discipline develop their capacity to 
compare analagous things and to generalize. The ability to read difficult texts 
carefully and thoughtfully is especially important in political theory courses. 
Finally, politics is obviously a contentious subject. Students in political studies 
must develop some tolerance for ambiguity and disagreement, while at the 

100 



same time learning to appreciate the difference between informed and 
uninformed opinion. Political studies provides good training for life in a world 
that is, for better or worse, shaped profoundly by political institutions. It is 
especially appropriate for those interested in careers in law, business, teaching, 
journalism and government. 

Major 

The requirements for a major in political studies are satisfactory 
completion of at least ten political studies courses (2214, 3214, and 4212 may 
be counted as political studies courses) as well as four elective (non-core) 
courses in related subjects, no more than two of which may be in the same 
subject. These "related subjects" include all history courses, as well as courses 
in philosophy, sociology, economics, quantitative methods, or a foreign 
language, subject to the discretion of the student's advisor. 

All majors must take C222, Introduction to Political Studies, which may 
be used either to fulfill a major requirement or a core requirement, but not 
both. Majors must take courses in all four basic subfields of the discipline 
(American government, comparative politics, international relations, and 
political philosophy). 

Minor 

To receive a minor, students must take at least five political studies 
courses in addition to Introduction to Political Studies. These courses must 
fall in at least three of the four basic subfields of the discipline (American 
government, comparative politics, international relations, and political theory).

Division III 
Science 




To ensure the orderly completion of a major in one of the fields of the 
natural sciences or mathematics, the student should consult with the 
appropriate faculty members in the division at the time of the first registration. 
Careful planning of the program of study is important, so that the student 
is aware of departmental and divisional requirements and allowable options 
within the major. Each student must complete the core requirements as well as 
those departmental and divisional requirements as may apply to the 
specific degree. 

Three semesters of the course "Science Seminar" (23 51, described under 
Biology below) are required for all science majors. 



Biology 



The curriculum in biology provides the student with a foundation in both 
classical and contemporary biological concepts and prepares the student for 
continuing intellectual growth and professional development in the life 
sciences. Numerous opportunities for employment in research institutions, 
industry and government are available: the curriculum also prepares students 
for graduate school and for professional schools of medicine, dentistry, 
veterinary medicine, etc. Students planning to attend graduate or professional 
schools should realize that admission to such schools is highly competitive. 
Completion of a biology major does not insure admission to these schools.

Chemistry 



The chemistry program covers four general areas of chemistry: inorganic, 
organic, physical and analytical. The first half of a student's chemistry 
curriculum involves courses which present the fundamentals of the various 
areas. The second half of the curriculum consists of advanced courses which 
cover specialized topics in chemistry. In addition to factual knowledge about 
chemistry, the student gains an understanding about the scientific method 
and a systematic approach to research. A large portion of the chemistry 
curriculum includes laboratory courses. These courses teach the techniques 
and skills used in chemical experimentation. 

A student who has completed the Bachelor of Science program in 
chemistry has several career options. These options include technical or 
analytical work in a chemical laboratory and non-research positions in the 
chemical industry such sales or marketing. Another option is to enter a 
graduate or professional school. Graduates interested in doing chemical 
research should pursue the M.S. or Ph.D. degrees. Those interested in 
professions such as medicine or dentistry, would enter the appropriate 
professional school after receiving the Bachelor of Science degree.

Medical Technology 



Medical technologists play an important role in the delivery of modern 
health care. Although hospitals and clinics are their traditional sites of 
employment, medical technologists also find opportunities in many other 
situations, such as commercial testing laboratories, medical and 
pharmaceutical research facilities, and in the sales and demonstration of 
technical instruments. 

Students working toward the degree Bachelor of Science in Medical Tech- 
nology undertake their clinical training at an approved institution after 
successful completion of prerequisite academic coursework at Oglethorpe 
University. Prerequisites for clinical programs vary among institutions: 
therefore, students should seek additional advisement from the program to 
which they are applying. This will enable the student and the Oglethorpe 
adviser to design the proper sequence of courses and to establish an appro- 
priate time frame for completion of degree requirements. Courses to be com- 
pleted at Oglethorpe will usually include the following: General Biology 1 and 
II, Microbiology, Human Physiology, General Chemistry I and II, Organic Chem- 
istry I and II, Elementary Quantitative Analysis, College Mathematics or 
Calculus 1, and appropriate core courses. At least 60 semester hours must 
be completed at Oglethorpe in order to be eligible for an Oglethorpe degree 
in Medical Technology. 



Mathematics 



Mathematics is both an art and a science. Students taking mathematics 
courses at Oglethorpe will encounter both the art of creative thought and 
the science of logical thought. Problem solving capabilities are developed 
in mathematics courses. Since such skills are essential in all fields of endeavor, 
mathematics makes an important contribution to a liberal arts education. 

In particular, mathmatics provides tools fundamental for analysis of 
problems in the physical, biological and social sciences, as well as in such 
areas as economics and business. Also, opportunities are provided to pursue 
the more theoretical aspects of mathematics, which are integral to its further 
development. 

A major in mathematics provides a core of mathematics essential for 
graduate study or immediate employment. Students with mathematical training 
at the undergraduate level are sought by employers in business, government, 
and industry. Career opportunities for mathematics majors exist in areas such 
as computer programming, operations research, statistics, and applied 
mathematics. 

Major 

The object of the course of studies leading to a major in mathematics 
is to provide the student with a broad background and skills in classical 
analysis, together with an introduction to principal topics in contemporary 
formal mathematics and its historical background. The mathematics courses 
required are as follows: Calculus l-IV, Differential Equations, Applied 
Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, and Special Topics in 
Mathematics 1 and II. In addition, a year of Calculus based physics — College 

109 



Physics I and II — is to be taken concurrently with Calculus I and II. Computer 
Science I, Classical Mechanics I and II, Formal IjDgic, and three semesters of 
Science Seminar (2 351) are also required. (Calculus I and College Physics I 
fulfill core requirements and are therefore not part of the major per se.) 

Minor 

The required coursework for a minor in mathematics consists of 15 
semester hours of mathematics courses beyond Precalculus Mathematics. 

P33I. General Mathematics 3 hours

Education 

Education provides courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Elennentary 
and Secondary Education, with elementary concentrations in Early Childhood 
(K-4) and Middle Grades Education (4-8) and with Secondary Education (7-12) 
concentrations in the subject areas of English, mathematics, social science, 
and science (biology, physics or chemistry). The teacher preparation curricula 
are fully approved by the Department of Education of the State of Georgia; 
successful program completion is necessary to obtain a teaching certificate. 
Students desiring certification in other states should secure information from 
those states. 

Admission to and Retention 
in Teacher Education Program 

Completion of the Teacher Education Program requires the following 
steps: 

1. Admission to the Teacher Education Program. Apply as a second 
semester sophomore or, for transfer students, after having attended 
Oglethorpe for one semester. 

2. Completion of a pre-teaching experience — "September Experience." 
Apply for placement after completion of freshman year. 

3. Completion of Student Teaching. Apply for spring placement by 
October 20. 

4. Completion of the entire approved program as found on the follow- 
ing pages. Professional courses should be completed according to 
the sequence listed in the approved program; detailed programs may 
be obtained from the education advisers. 

Admission to Oglethorpe University does not admit a student to the 
Teacher Education Program. A person doing satisfactory academic work and 
approved by the Teacher Education Council is admitted. Once admitted, the 
student's progress and record are subject to regular review by the adviser, 
other professors, and the Teacher Education Council. No student on academic 
probation will be scheduled for student teaching until such probation is 
removed. 

Admission to the program may be granted during the second semester 
of the sophomore year (or as early as possible thereafter) and requires a 
cumulative average of 2.5. Before placement for student teaching can be 
approved the student must evidence good moral character and personaltiy, 
emotional stability and physical stamina, a desire to work with children and/or 
youth, a grade of at least C in English Composition 1 & II and in all professional 
and teaching field courses, satisfactory field experiences, and a cumulative 
grade point average of at least 2.5. The student's record is subject to regular 
review from the time of admission to the program. 

Completion of the approved program is one of three required steps 
toward teacher certification in Georgia. Students also have to demonstrate 
competency in the subject field by making a satisfactory score on a state ad- 
ministered Teacher Certification Test and must demonstrate the ability to 
perform competently in the classroom setting. Forms needed to apply for 

116 



the Georgia teaching certificate are available in the office of the Director of 
Teacher Education, 

Approved programs leading to teacher certification in Georgia are de- 
scribed in the following sections. All approved programs include the require- 
ments for meeting core requirements at Oglethorpe. They may require more 
general education than is required to meet the core requirements for 
graduation, or they may require certain courses which may be applied to the 
core; careful advisement is necessary on the part of all students preparing 
to teach. Public speaking is a suggested elective for all education majors. 



Early Childhood and 
Middle Grades Education 



Persons desiring to teach in the elementary grades must select either 
Early Childhood (K-4) or Middle grades (4-8) as a concentration. General Edu- 
cation requirements must include American History I and II; otherwise regular 
core requirements should be met. 

Students should select Introduction to Education during the freshman 
year or the fall semester of the sophomore year. Program requirements for 
education majors are available from any education faculty member and must 
be followed closely to avoid scheduling problems in the completion of the 
degree requirements. Programs require work in professional education to 
culminate in student teaching and in the content of the teaching field. Teaching 
field courses for the early childhood major include all content areas; teaching 
field courses for the middle grades include five basic content areas and require 
two concentrations of approximately 12 semester hours each. 



Secondary Education 



Ail secondary education programs require Biological Science, Physical 
Science (or appropriate specialized courses for science majors) and two 
courses in mathematics (to include College Mathematics) in addition to, or 
as part of, the general core. 

All secondary education programs require the following courses in 
professional education: Introduction to Education, Child/Adolescent 
Psychology; Secondary Curriculum, Educational Psychology, The Exceptional 
Child (junior or senior). Secondary Methods and Materials (first four weeks) 
and Student Teaching (last eleven weeks) comprise the student teaching 
semester, which is normally the last semester of the senior year.

Psychology 



Psychology uses scientific methods to study a broad range of topics 
related to human behavior and mental processes including motivation, learn- 
ing and memory, human development and personality, psychological dis- 
orders, social interaction, and physiological bases for behavior and thought. 
The study of psychology should help a student to develop skills in three basic 
areas: skills associated with the scientific method including data collection, 
analysis and interpretation: skills that are useful in the construction and evalua- 
tion of theories such as analytic and synthetic reasoning: and skills in human 
relations through which the student learns to become a more precise and 
more tolerant observer of human behavior and individual differences. Many 
students with a background in psychology choose careers in psychology-related 
fields such as counseling, psychotherapy, or research, but many others choose 
careers that are not so directly tied to psychology. For example, psychology 
provides a good background for careers in law, education, marketing, manage- 
ment, public relations, publishing, and communications.

Additional major requirements are listed under the particular disciplinary 
headings in this section. Major requirements may be satisfied with a course 
in the division only if the grade received was a "C" or higher. 

Students are responsible for ensuring that they fulfill all requirements 
in the major program selected. 

Business Administration 

The business administration curriculum is designed to prepare students 
for careers as business leaders who will earn their livelihood by discerning 
and satisfying people's material wants. Success in this endeavor requires (1) 
the ability to think independently, (2) knowledge of business terminology and 
business institutions, both domestic and international, and (3) communication 
skills. The ability to think independently is enhanced through study of the 
courses in the core curriculum and through a requirement that each student 
must complete advanced work in at least one area of business. Courses in 
economics and the functional areas of business administration introduce 
students to business institutions, terminology, and methods of inquiry. A 
required course in advanced writing provides practice in thinking and 
communicating. 

In addition to preparing students for business careers, the program in 
business administration is valuable preparation for other careers. Students 
learn administrative skills and methods of inquiry that are applicable to 
administration of governmental and non-profit organizations. Also, since much 
legal practice involves businesses, knowledge of business terminology and 
institutions is an excellent background for the study and practice of law.

Accounting 



The essence of accounting is measurement and communication. The 
objective is to provide information that is useful to decision-makers who must 
choose between economic alternatives. Accordingly, the field focuses on 
information concerning economic resources, claims to those resources, and 
the results of economic activity. The purpose of the major in accounting is 
to acquaint the student with this information and to develop the analytic ability 
necessary to produce it. The student learns to observe economic activity, to 
select from that activity the events which are relevant to particular decisions, 
to measure the economic consequences of those events in quantitative terms, 
to record, classify and summarize the resulting data, and to communicate the 
information produced thereby in various reports and statements to appropriate 
decision-makers. 

The major in accounting consists of a coherent sequence of accounting 
and other courses which provide the conceptual foundation and basic skills 
to begin a career in accounting practice or to use as an appropriate 
background for such related careers as financial services, computer science, 
management, industrial engineering, law and others. Accountants work in 
public accounting, business, government and non-profit organizations.

Economics 

Economics is a way of thinking based on the premise that individuals 
make decisions that advance their own interests. From this premise, economics 
attempts to predict: (1) individual behavior and (2) the social order that results 
from the interaction of many individual decision-makers. Finally economics 
involves evaluation of the resulting social order. 

The three aspects of economic study are related to citizenship and 
careers. First, the attempt to predict individual behavior results in the deriva- 
tion of several economizing principles that are useful in business practice. 
Second, much of the interaction of individuals is in the form of exchanges 
in markets. Knowledge of how markets function is helpful both to business 
people and voters who will make decisions about such market-related 
economic matters as taxes, interest ceilings, minimum wages, and public utility 
rates. Third, the practice in evaluating different social orders leads students 
to replace their unschooled opinions about complex situations with disciplined 
thought. This practice should be of service to those planning careers as lawyers, 
politicians, civil servants, or religious professionals. 

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree in economics focuses 
on the first two of these three aspects of economic study while the Bachelor 
of Arts degree focuses on the second and third.

• ^* 



Organization 



The Graduate Division is organized as one of the six academic divisions 
of the University. All graduate work is administered by the Graduate Division, 
which is governed by the Teacher Education Council under the policies of 
the University. The Teacher Education Council is the policy-making body 
chosen from the faculty and administration, under the leadership of the chair- 
man of the Graduate Division. 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide well-qualified stu- 
dents with the opportunity to obtain the first graduate degree, and to provide 
members of the teaching profession with the opportunity to enhance their 
competencies and knowledge in the area of elementary education. Inherent 
in the guiding philosophy is the assumption that graduate study includes more 
than the passing of prescribed courses and the meeting of minimum 
requirements. All students who receive graduate degrees must possess a broad 
knowledge of the literature of their field of study, be capable of sustained 
study, exhibit the power of independent thinking, and possess reasonable 
knowledge of the techniques of research. 



40 



Admission 

Upon recommendation of the chairman of the Teacher Education Council 
and approval of the Teacher Education Council, a person holding a bachelor's 
degree from an accredited college or university may be admitted to the 
Graduate Division. In addition to general requirements prescribed, the 
applicant must submit transcripts of all previous work completed: satisfactory 
scores on either the Graduate Record Examination (aptitude portion), the 
National Teacher Examination (commons and teaching field), or the Miller 
Analogies Test; two recommendations (form provided) from previous colleges 
attended and/or employers: and, when deemed necessary, take validating 
examinations or preparatory work. Students who do not have a Georgia T4 
certificate in either early or middle grades must contact the Chairman of the 
Graduate Program in teacher education prior to admission. Candidates not 
previously prepared for teaching must meet requirements for first professional 
certification before completing requirements for the master's degree. 

Procedure 

Application forms may be obtained from the Office of Admissions of 
the University. Completed forms should be returned to the Office of Admis- 
sions as soon as possible but at least 20 days prior to the term in which the 
applicant expects to enroll. These forms should be accompanied by a $20 
application fee (non-refundable). All material (completed forms, fee transcripts, 
and test scores) should be sent directly to the Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe 
University Atlanta, Georgia 30319. To insure proper consideration, all 
documents must be on hand at least 20 days prior to the proposed time of 
enrollment. All documents become the property of the University and will 
not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate Division in the 
term indicated on the application, the applicant should notify the Office of 
Admissions of the change and indicate a new date of entrance, if applicable. 
Otherwise, the original admissions will be canceled, the file discontinued, and 
a new application may be required for admission at a later date. 

Admission to the Graduate Division does not imply ultimate acceptance 
as a candidate for an advanced degree. For admission to candidacy, see the 
section Admission to Candidacy. 

Classification 

Students may be admitted to the Graduate Division under any one of 
the following classifications. 

Regular. A student who has a cumulative grade-point average of at least 
2.8 on a 4.0 scale, satisfactory scores on the GRE, NTE, or MAT, and the rec- 
ommendation of the chairman of the Graduate Division, and who has 
completed all prerequisites required for admission may be admitted as a 
regular graduate student. 

Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of the standards 
required for admission as a regular student or a qualified senior may be 

141 



admitted under conditions specified at the time of admission by the Chairman 
of the Teacher Education Council and approved by the Teacher Education 
Council. The provisionally admitted student must include two foundations 
courses among the first four courses attempted and apply to the Chairman 
of the Graduate Division for reclassification when the specified conditions 
have been met. Graduate courses completed by the provisional student may 
be counted toward a degree after the student has been reclassified as a regular 
student. 

A senior within six semester hours of completing requirements for the 
bachelor's degree may be permitted to enroll in courses for graduate credit 
provided that: (!) the student has the permission of the head of the education 
department and the Chairman of the Graduate Division; (2) the student is 
otherwise qualified for admission to graduate study except for the degree; 
and (3) the total load in a semester would not exceed 1 5 semester hours. Under 
no circumstances may a course be used for both graduate and undergraduate 
credit. 

Transient. A student in good standing in another recognized graduate 
school who wishes to enroll in the Graduate Division of Oglethorpe University 
and who plans to return thereafter to the former institution may be admitted 
as a transient graduate student. In lieu of full transcripts and regular applica- 
tions the student must submit a transient student application form completed 
by the graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for credit. Any student 
admitted on this basis should understand that registration terminates upon 
the completion of the work authorized by the degree-granting institution. If 
later electing to seek a degree from Oglethorpe University, the student must 
make formal application for admission and may petition to have credit earned 
as a transient student applied toward the degree at the University. 

Unclassified. A degree holder who is not a prospective candidate for 
a degree at Oglethorpe University, such as a person seeking to meet certifi- 
cation requirements or local school requirements, may be admitted without 
presenting test scores or recommendations. Credit earned by a student in 
this category may be counted toward the degree only with consent of the 
Teacher Education Council. 



Registration 



Registration dates for each term are listed on page 3 of this publication. 
Several weeks prior to the beginning of each term, students may obtain from 
the Registrars Office a schedule of classes for that particular term. Graduate 
summer sessions may vary slightly either as to dates or length of course. 



Courses and Loads 



Courses numbered 6000 are open only to graduate students. Some Arts 
and Sciences courses with 4000 numbers carry either undergraduate or grad- 
uate credit; graduate students, however, are expected to do more extensive 
reading, prepare additional reports, and/or produce papers or other projects 
requiring more extensive research. 

The maximum course load for any graduate student is 12 credit hours 
per semester or six credit hours in a summer term. A person working more 

142 



than 30 hours per week normally may not register for more than six hours 
credit per semester. In all cases, the graduate student is urged to register for 
only the number of hours which can be successfully completed. 

Advisement 

Upon admission to the Graduate Division, each student is assigned to 
a member of the graduate faculty in education who serves as adviser and 
guides the student in planning a program of study. 



Grading 



The quality of work of courses taken in the graduate program is indicated 
by the marks A, B, C, D, and F. Grades of I and W are reserved for special 
cases. Listed below are requirements for each of these grades: 

A — Excellent, with four quality points for each credit hour 

B — Good, with three quality points for each credit hour 

C — Poor, with two quality points for each credit hour 

D — Unsatisfactory work 

F — Failing work or unofficial withdrawal 

I — Incomplete may be used if the student, because of unusual cir- 
cumstances, is unable to complete the required work in the pre- 
scribed time interval, provided the student was doing satisfactory 
work. Such a grade must be removed by the completion of the 
work within one year or the I becomes an F 

W —Official withdrawal may be permitted if the student's progress is 
interrupted by illness or other emergencies. 



Standards 



Candidates for the masters degree must meet the following academic 
standards: 

1. The student's overall grade-point average for work submitted in a 
graduate program must be 3.0 or higher. 

2. If, in any case, the candidate fails to maintain satisfactory academic 
standards a review by the Teacher Education Council will determine 
the student's continuation in a graduate program. 

Any student will be placed on Academic Probation who falls below a 
B average (GPA-3.0) or has a total of two course grades of C or below. 

Any student will be dismissed from the Graduate Program who receives 
a third grade of C or less or who does not achieve a B average upon completion 
of three additional graduate courses. 



Admission to Candidacy 



Application for admission to candidacy for the Master of Arts degree 
must be filed with the Chairman of the Graduate Division after the student 
has 12 semester hours of graduate study at Oglethorpe University. Admis- 
sion to candidacy would be given or refused following an examination of the 

143 



overall work of the student and careful review of the work completed at 
Oglethorpe. Notice of action taken on application for admission to candidacy 
would be given in writing to the student and to the student's adviser. The 
student seeking the Master of Arts degree must furnish certification by the 
Chairman of the Education Department of eligibility for first professional cer- 
tification or include appropriate make-up work in the program.
