Tradition, Purpose 
and Goals 




Tradition, Purpose, and Goals 



Oglethorpe derives its institutional purpose from an awareness and apprecia- 
tion 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 ha\e 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 universities, 
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 Johns Hopkins and other institutions in the last 
century and has left its mark on every college and university in the 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 1835 and named after General James Edward Oglethorpe, the 
founder of Georgia, the University was patterned on Corpus Christi College, 
Oxford, General Oglethorpe's ahua dialer. It would be oxerstating the matter to say 
that Oglethorpe University has been untouched by the other two conceptions of 
higher education, but it has certainly been shaped principally 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 John Henrv 
Newman's The Idea of a Ihiiivrsity, one of the great educational classics. Brief!)' 
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 luidergraduate education 
for the able young person than technical training for a specific job. 

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

3. C'lose relationships between teacher and student are indispensable to this 
type of education. A teacher is much more than a convevor of information 
— the invention of the printing press made that notion of education 



10 



obsolete. Rather, the most important fmictioii of the teac hei is to stimulate 
intellectual activity in the student and to piomote his development as a 
mature person. Factory-like instruction, conducted in huge classes, is the 
very antithesis of the English tradition. 
4. A collegiate education is far more than a coUec tion of academic courses. It is 
a process of development in which campus leadership o|jportunities, 
residential life, athletics, formal and informal social functions, aesthetic 
experiences, and contact with students from other c ultiues, in addition tcj 
classroom exercises, all play imjiortant 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 tcj 195!^. Oglethorpe, he said, should 
be a "small college which is superlatively good." Only at a small college with 
carefully selected students and facult\, he believed, could voimg persons achieve 
their fullest intellectual development through an intense dialogue with extraordi- 
nary teachers. Thus, a commitment to limited size and supei ior 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 voung people to function effectixelv 
in our complex and rapidly changing society. What are the recjuirements 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 eflectivelv 
in changing circumstances. Rigid specialization, with its training in current prac- 
tice, ill prepares the graduate for responsibilities in such a societ\. The broadly 
educated person, schooled in fundamental principles, is better equipped to 
exercise leadership in a world that is being transformed bv high technology and 
new information. This point has been made persuasively by John Naisbitt in the 
first chapter of his nc:)table 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 c^f the humane generalist — the kind 
of leader needed by a complex and changing society. Our pvnpose 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 pri\ate 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. 



II 



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 understand the 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 beha\ ior. 

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 extracurricular life are structured to engender in stu- 
dents the following: 

1. The willingness and ability to assume the responsibilities of leadership 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 contemporary 
Hfe and skill in interacting with persons of diverse cultural backgrounds. 

The graduate program in teacher education seeks to support elementary and 
middle grades education in the University's neighboring community by providing 
members of the teaching profession with the opportunitv to enhance their knowl- 
edge and skills in areas of assessed need. The program enables practicing teachers 
and other students to achieve career advancement by earning the initial graduate 
degree in the field of education. Program graduates are expected to ha\e de\ eloped 
and demonstrated: 

1. Familiarity with the scholarly literature in their field of studv. 

2. Expertise in appropriate research techniques. 

3. The capacity for sustained study and independent thought. 



12 



The continuing education program enables members of the metropolitan 
community to pursue their educational goals in a variety of programs and coui ses. 
Baccalaureate courses selected for adult learners from the regular undergraduate 
curriculum are offered in the evening and on weekends. Majors 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 possible. 
Courses focused on the goals of personal enrichment and profiessional develop- 
ment 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 and students in their subsequent education, 
a wide variety of careers, and community life attests to the soundness of this 
approach to education.

History 

Oglethorpe University was chartered in 1835 and began classes in 1838 on a 
campus at Midway near Milledgeville, then Georgia's state capital. The new 
university commemorated in its name Georgia's founder, General James Edward 
Oglethorpe, who had established the (Colony of Georgia some one hundred vears 
earlier in order to defend British North America and pro\'ide a new field of 
economic opportunity for the disadvantaged. Oglethorpe University 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 Git\ Hall. 

The University's 20th-century history began with its re-toiniding on a new 
suburban campus in 1915 by a group of business and civic leaders led by Dr. 
Thornwell Jacobs 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 
1920s in the collegiate Gothic style of Oxford's Corpus Christi College, General 
Oglethorpe's alma mater. Dr. Jacobs guided the development of the Uni\ersitv as 
President until his retirement in 1944. 

Under Dr. Jacobs' 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 program 
rapidly during the 1920s 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 undergraduate 
curriculum in the arts and sciences, business administration, and education that is 
designed for students of above-average ability and motivation. 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 1,100 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 twent)-fne other coun- 
tries. Education at Oglethorpe is intended to be a cosmopolitan and broadening 
experience. The University has become increasingly selecti\e in admissions, and 
most of its entering students come from the top ten percent of high school 
graduates. 

Special attention has been given to keeping 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 availabilit\ 
of a variety of financial aid programs also helps to ensure that academically able 
students from varying socio-economic backgrounds are able to enroll. 

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 



15 



represented on the Oglethorpe faculty. The student body is one of the ablest in the 
Southeast. 

Looking toward the future, the University will continue to strive to provide an 
excellent academic program, which prepares men and women to exercise leader- 
ship 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 Jersey 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 second- 
ary 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 Hnal 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

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

Transfer 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 Pro\'ost in consultation with 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 an approved 
needs analysis form regardless of their income level. Ihe University's financial aid 
professionals will then have the information necessary to discuss all options 
available to parents and students. 1 he approved needs analysis forms (FFS, FAF, 
Singlefile, etc.) are the common forms by which students may apply for all campus- 
based programs (Perkins Loans [NDSL], Supplemental Kducational Opp<Mtunity 
Grants, College Work-Study), and at the same time, apply for the Pell Oram, the 
Stafford Loan, as well as the Georgia Incentive Grant, if a resident of Cieoi gia. After 
filing the needs analysis form, the student will receive an acknowledgement from 
the processor plus a Student Aid Report for the Pell Grant Program. When the 
Student Aid Report is received, it should be forwarded to the Office 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 communitv. Applications must be 
received by mid-December. 

Oglethorpe Scholars Awards (OSA) Scholarships based on achiexement are 
available to students with superior academic ability. 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 superior academic aloilities as undergraduates. Scholarships range 
upwards from $500. 

Recipients of funds from this program are expected to maintain specified 
levels of academic achievement and make a contribution to the Oglethorpe commu- 
nity. 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 \s ill be pro\ ided to students who demon- 
strate exceptional work experience and skills. The number of positions may vary 
each year. Students should complete the College Employment Application in 
addition to the approved needs anah sis form. 

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



31 



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 1990-91 school year, this grant was 
$925 per academic year. Financial need is not a factor in determining eligibility. A 
separate application is required. 

Georgia Incentive Grant (GIG), 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 student's resources in financing the total cost of a college education. 
Application requires the student to complete an appr(ived needs anahsis form 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. Application for this program mav 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. I he 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 ha\e 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 percent anntial rate beginning nine months after the borrower's 
education ends. These loans are a\'ailable to students who show a demonstrated 
financial need by applying with an approved needs analysis form. Students who 
elect to serve in the Peace Corps, a vokmteer 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. Cancellation 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. 

Stafford Loans are long-term loans available through banks, credit iniions, 
and other lending institutions. Students must submit the appro\ed needs anahsis 
form as well as a separate loan application. 

Parent Loans for Undergraduate/Graduate Students and Supplemental 
Loans for Students are relatively long-term loans a\ailable through banks, credit 
unions, and other lending institutions. Parents desiring to seek a loan 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 forTy Cobb Scholarships. 
Applications from imdergraduate students who are married will not be considered.

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 commis- 
sioned rank in the U.S. Naval Reserve or Marine Corps Reserve and to retain that 
commission until the sixth anniversarv of receipt of original commission. 

College program students are uniformed at government expense and, during 
their junior and senior years, recei\e retainer pay of $100 per month. They must 



43 



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 i-egular 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 scholar- 
ship and college program students. 

Selection Procedure 

Scholarship students are selected in nationwide competition based on SAT or 
ACT scores. The NROTC at Georiga 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 scholarship. 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 qualifica- 
tions, an interview by naval officers, and scores 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.

Air Force 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 chair- 
person of the Department of Aerospace Studies at the Georgia Institute of 
Technology or the Registrar at Oglethorpe University. 

General Information 

Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) offers two phases. The 
first two years constitute the General Military Course (G.M.C.) and the last two 
years, the Professional Officer Course (RO.C). 

Four-year Program 

Students entering the four-year program enroll in AFROTC courses in the 
same manner in which they cross register for other undergraduate courses in 
University Center institutions; see the Oglethorpe Registrar for details. A formal 
application is not required. Students enrolled in the G.M.C. incur no military 
obligation unless they are on an AFROTC scholarship. Those students desiring to 
become commissioned officers in the Air Force must compete for entry into the 
RO.C, which is normally taken during the last two years of college. Between the 
sophomore and junior years, cadets normally attend a four-week field training 
session conducted at an Air Force base. Students accepted for the RO.C. become 
members of the Air Force Reserve and receive a tax-free subsistence allowance of 
$100 per month. 

Two-year Program 

The two-year program and the last two years of the four-year program are 
identical in academic content. The basic requirement for entry into this program is 
that the student must have two academic years remaining in school. This may be at 
the undergraduate or graduate level or a combination of the two. Selection of two- 
year applicants is predicated upon the same criteria as selection of four-^ear 
program cadets. In addition, candidates must successfully complete a six-week field 
training course at an Ar Force base during the summer preceding enrollment and 
must be recommended by the field training staff to enter RO.C. upon their return 
to the Oglethorpe campus. 

AFROTC College Scholarship Program 

AFROTC college scholarships are available to qualified cadets in the iwo- and 
four-year programs. Scholarships cover tuition, matriculation, health services.

Ihe tees, costs, and dates listed l)el()\v are loi' I9*)()-'.)1. l-'iiiaiu iai iiilormalion 
for 1991-92 will be available in early 1991. 

The tuition charged by Oglethorpe University represents 57 percent of the 
actual expense of educating each student, the balance coming from endowment 
income, gifts, and other sources. Thus, every Oglethorpe imdergraduate is the 
beneficiary of a hidden scholarship. At the same time lb percent 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 $4,650 per semester. Room and board is $2,000 per semester. 
Students who desire single rooms are assessed $2,250 to $2,475 for room and

hours during a semester are charged $155 for each additional hoiu. Pavment of 
tuition and fees is due two weeks prior to registration 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 amoiuit 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 semester 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 
refvmdable. However, the deposit is credited to the student's account for the fall

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 $55 per year. In 
addition, any student co\'ered b\ the basic polic) ma} purchase the Major Medical 
Plan for $70 a year. International students, students participating in any inter- 
collegiate sport, and students participating in intramiual football or basketball are 
required to have this major medical coverage or its equivalent. (Insiuance rates are

will be charged $1,095 per three semester hour course. This rate is applicable to 
those students taking 11 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 a\'ailable from the 
Registrar. 



Withdrawal, Drop/Add 



Students who find it necessary to change their enrollment bv dropping or 
adding courses must do so by obtaining a Drop/Add form from the Registrar's 
Office. This form must be completed and returned to the Registrar's Office during 
the Drop/Add week. 

After the Drop/Add period, the professor must approve the change in sched- 
ule. The professor may issue one of the following grades: Withdrew Passing (W), 
Withdrew Failing (WF), or may refuse to approve the withdrawal. 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 bv 
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 anv course, the instructor will 
notify the Registrar's Office and it will be assumed that the student has unofficiallv 
withdrawn from the course. This does not eliminate the responsibility stated above 
concerning the official withdrawal policy. The student mav recei\e the grade of 



50 



withdrew passing, withdrew tailing, or laihire due to excessive absences. This |)oli(\ 
has direct implications lor students recei\ ing benefits iioni the Veterans Admin- 
istration and other federal agencies as these agencies must be notified when a 
student misses six consecutive classes, fhis will result in an automatic decrease in 
payments to the student. Reinstatement in a coiuse is at the discretion of the 
instructor. 

If a student must withdraw from the University, an olfici.il withdrawal form 
must t^e obtained from the Registrar. 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 reftuid policy is based on the University's commitment 
to a fair and equitable refiuid of tuition and other charges assessed. While the 
University advances this policy, it should not be interpreted as a policy of conve- 
nience for students to take lightly their responsibility and their commitment to the 
University. The University lias demonstrated a commitment by admitting and 
providing the necessary programs for all students and expects students to recipro- 
cate that commitment. 

Since the premium for insiuance coverage is not retained bv the Universit\, it 
will not be refunded after registration day. Since room and t^oard ser\'ices are 
consumed on a daily basis, during the period when tuition is to be refimded on a 
100 percent basis, the room and board refund will be pro rata on a dail}- basis. .After 
the 100 percent 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 calctilation of a refund for withdrawal or Drop/ 
Add will be the date on which the Registrar receives the official form signed b\ all 
required personnel. All students must follow the procedures for withdrawal and 
Drop/Add in order to receivea refund. Students are reminded that all changes in 
their academic program must be cleared through the Registrar, and arrangement 
with a professor will not f^e recognized as an official change of schedule. 

All tuition refund requests w ill be processed at the conclusion of the fourth 
week of classes. Payment will take a minimimi of two weeks, but will f^e no longer 
than 40 days. 

In the following schedides, "class day" means any da\ dining 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 bv the end of the 16th class day 50% 

Changes in schedide by the end of the 20th class day 25% 

In order to administer the refund policy equitably, there will be no exceptions. 



51 



Damage deposit refunds will be processed once each semester for students and 
will be mailed on an announced day from the Business Office. No refund will be 
processed until classes have ceased for the semester in progress. 



Financial Obligations

Leadership Development 



Oglethorpe University seeks to prepare its students for roles of leadership 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 competen- 
cies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Though widely neglected today 
at all levels of education, these are the prerequisites for effective leadership. They 
are the marks of an educated person. Oglethorpe insists that its students achieve 
advanced proficiency in these skills. In addition, students are offered specific 
preparation in the arts of leadership. Such arts include an appreciation of construc- 
tive values, the setting of goals, public speaking, human relations, and organiza- 
tional skills. 

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

Orientation and the Freshman Seminar 

Oglethorpe University wishes to provide each student with the opportunity to 
make a successful adjustment to college life. Because the University community 
takes pride in a tradition of close personal relationships, an orientation program 
has been organized to foster the development of these relationships, and provide 
much needed information 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. Thor- 
ough 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 ckiring these sessions are designed 
to meet the needs of the entering student and to help the student assimilate his or 
her college experiences. Freshman students, having completed the orientation 
program and Freshman Seminar, are better prepared to understand and appreci- 
ate their educational development. 

Student Rights and Responsibilities 

Students of Oglethorpe University have specific rights and responsibilities. 
Among the rights are the right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembh. the 
right to the presumption of innocence and procedural fairness in the administra- 
tion of discipline, and the right of access to personal records. 

As members of the Oglethorpe community, students have the responsibilit\ to 
maintain high standards of conduct. Thev should respect the privacv and feelings 
of others, and the property of both students and the Universitv. Students are 
expected to display behavior which is not disruptive of campus life or the surround- 
ing community. They represent the Lhiiversitv off campus and are expected to act 



54 



in a law-abiding and mature fashion. 1 hose whose actions show that they have not 
accepted this responsibility may be subject to disciplinary action as set forth in the 
University's student handbook, llw Bonk. 

The Oglethorpe Student Association 

The Oglethorpe Student Association is the guiding bcxh lor student life at 
Oglethorpe University. The O.S.A. consists of two bodies: an executi\e council, 
composed of a president, vice president, parliamentarian, secretary, treasurer, and 
presidents of the four classes; and the senate, chaired by the vice president, and 
composed of four senators from each class. Both bodies nieet regularly and the 
meetings are open to the public. Additional information can be obtained from the 
O.S.A. Office or the Student Center Office located on the upper le\el of the 
Emerson Student Center. The address is Oglethorpe Student Association, ;U)00 
Woodrow Way, N.E., Atlanta, GA 30319. 

Student Organizations 



Valuable educational experience may be gained through active participation in 
approved campus activities and organizations. All students are encouraged to 
participate in one or more organizations to the extent that such involvement does 
not deter them from high academic achievement. Students are especiall) encour- 
aged to join professional organizations associated with their interests and goals. 

Eligibility for membership in student organizations is limited to currently 
enrolled students. To serve as an officer of an organization, a student must be 
enrolled full time and may not be on academic or disciplinary probation.

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 preregistration week. 
Students should make appointments to consult with their academic advisers dining 
preregistration. Summer schedules are planned during preregistration week in the 
spring semester. 

Ihe 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 preregistered 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 aca- 
demic 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 facult) member 
who has agreed to be tlie student's new adviser. 

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

This is the only method for changing academic achisers. 

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 Crade 
form. 



63 



A student's cumulative grade-point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing 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: 



Grade

*** — Grade has same effect as an "F" on the GPA; an "I" changes to an 
"F" unless the remaining required work is completed satisfac- 
torily and the grade is changed by the instructor before the end 
of the following semester. 
**** —Grade has no effect on the GPA; credit is awarded. 
Only work completed at Oglethorpe is reflected in the Oglethorpe GPA. 



Auditing Courses 



Regularly admitted Oglethorpe students may register for courses on an 
"audit" basis. A student who audits a course may attend the course for enrichment 
but is not required to take course examinations or complete other course require- 
ments. In order to audit a course, a student must request an Audit form from the 
Registrar's Office and submit it to the instructor of the course he or she intends to 
audit. If the class is not closed, the instructor may accept the student as an audit bv 
returning the signed form to the Registrar's Ofilce. The grade awarded for a class 
taken on an audit basis is "AU," and no credits or qualitv points are earned. 

Students may register to take courses on an audit basis onh during the normal 
time for dropping and adding courses. The fees for auditing courses are published 
by the Business Office. 



Dean's List

summer session. After that time the grade "WF" is assigned. Only in the case of 
prolonged illness (a physician's letter must be submitted directly to the Registrar's 
Office) or withdrawal from the University will a "W " be assigned. 

tn 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 that the 
student has left campus as a result of an emergency and notifies instructors. 
Instructors may elect to assign a "W" in such a case even if it occurs after 
midsemester or midsession. 



67 



Repetition of Courses 



Courses may be repeated only if an unsatisfactory grade (D, F, FA, or \VF) was 
received in the course. When a course is repeated, both grades are calculated into 
the student's grade-point average. 

For courses completed prior to 1984, consult the Registrar for applicable 
regulations. 



Honor Code 



Because Oglethorpe students and faculty expect each other to be truthftil in 
the intellectual endeavor they share, all academic work at the University is done 
under the provisions of an Honor Code which is administered by an Honor Council 
consisting of five students and two faculty members chosen randomly. Oglethorpe 
students affirm their commitment to the Honor Code with a written pledge on each 
piece of graded work. 

Violations of the Code are: 
Cheating 

1. The unauthorized use of notes, texts, or other such materials during an 
examination, 

2. Copying another person's work or participation in such an effort, 

3. An attempt or participation in an attempt to fulfill the requirements of a 
cotnse with work other than one's original work for that course. Students 
have the responsibility of avoiding participation in cheating incidents bv 
doing their own work, taking precautions against others copying their 
work, and in general neither giving nor receiving aid. 

Plagiarism 

Plagiarism includes representing someone else's words, ideas, data, or original 
research as one's own, and in general failing to footnote or otherwise ackno\vledge 
the source of such work. One has the responsibility of avoiding plagiarism by taking 
adequate notes on reference materials tised in the preparation of reports, papers, 
and other coiusework. 

Both students and faculty have the responsibility of reporting suspected 
violations to the Honor Council, which conducts a preliminary investigation to 
determine whether there is sufficient evidence of a \iolation. If the e\idence 
appears to be convincing, the full coiuicil condticts a hearing, decides guilt or 
innocence and levies penalties that range from lowering the grade in a course to 
permanent expulsion. If requested, the decision of the coimcil is reviewed by an 
appeal board which is also composed of randomly selected students and faculty- 
Complete provisions of the code are foiuul in the pamphlet, llw Oglclhorpc 
Uiiixicrsily Ihnior Code.

first digit indicates the level of the course: 1 = freshman level, 2 = sophomore le\ el, 
3 = junior level, 4 = senior level, and (3 = graduate level. Higher level courses in a 
discipline are t\ pically designed to build upon the content of lower level courses in 
that discipline and other specified prerequisite courses. 

In some cases, the 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 bv 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 student's selection of a major. The 
student declares the major selected on the course registration form completed each 
semester. Students must haxe declared a major b)' 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 interdisciplinar) 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 curriculum. Each major 
includes a substantial component of advanced courses which ha\e specified prereq- 
uisites. A major may require for successful completion a cumulative grade-point 
average in the major field which is higher than the 2.0 cumulati\e grade-point 
average required for graduation. Alternatively, the requiiements for the major may 
state that onlv courses in which a "C " or higher grade is received niav be used in 



73 



satisfaction of the major's requirements. The student is responsible for ensuring the 
fulf'iHment of the requirements of tfie 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 
page 120).

Honors Program 



The Oglethorpe Universitv Honors Program is a three-semester program. 
During the spring semester of the junior year, a student chooses a thesis supervisor 
and enrolls in 3999 Honors I. The eligibility requirement is an overall 3.3 grade- 
point average and a 3.5 in the field in which the thesis is to be \\ritten. Students 



74 



slightly below this standard may still enroll in -^999 Honors I, but must meet the 
grade-point average standard by the beginning of fall semester in order to 
continue, unless an exception is granted by the Honors Program Director. Juni(jrs 
in the seminar are expected to complete a prospectus by the end of the spring 
semester, which is to include a definition of the problem to be addressed as well as a 
reading list. A student receives one hour of credit for completion of this on a pass/no 
pass basis, the grade being determined by the Honors Program Director in 
consultation with the faculty supervisor. Successful completion of this phase is a 
prerequisite for enrollment in Honors II in the fall. There are no formal require- 
ments for the summer, but the student ought t(j make enough progress on the 
reading list to be able to begin research immediately when classes resume in the fall. 

In the fall semester of the senior year, the student enrolls in 4998 Honors II, 
which requires an overall 3.3 grade-point average and a 3.5 in the field in which the 
research is to be done. In Honors II, the student completes the research, prepares a 
first draft of the thesis, and attends the scheduled meetings of the Honors Seminar. 
The student receives three hours of credit for this work and a letter grade assigned 
by the supervisor. If the letter grade is an A, the student then enrolls in 4999 
Honors III spring semester of the senior year and the Honors Program Director 
appoints a committee of three to evaluate the completed thesis. The committee 
must include the supervisor and may include someone from outside the division at 
Oglethorpe. During the first half of the spring semester the student works on 
revisions of the first draft and makes a presentation of the research to the Honors 
Seminar. For these efforts, the student receives one credit and a letter grade, 
assigned by the Honors Program Director with the advice of the super\isor. The 
final draft of the thesis is then presented to the committee, which determines 
whether "honors" will be granted. At the committee's discretion the student may be 
asked to make a formal defense of the thesis. 

Continuing Education students are eligible and encouraged to participate in 
the program. Interested students should contact the Honors Program Director. 



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 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 four regular academic years plus 
some summer courses. 

The student is required to complete three credit hours in Art Appreciation and 
at least 12 credit hours in studio electives at Oglethorpe. Upon successful comple- 
tion 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 re\ iew. 

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 



75 



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 L'ni\er- 
sity 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 these engineering schools. 
The three years at Oglethorpe include core curriculum 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. 
Additionally, Oglethorpe has an agreement with the Georgia Institute of Technol- 
ogy for dual degrees in various areas of applied sciences and economics. 

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 engineer- 
ing school. Because the required pie-engineering curricula of the three affiliated 
schools are slightly different, the student is advised to consult frequently with the 
facidty member serving as dual degree engineering program ad\'iser. 

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 indi\idually 
planned maj(^r. 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 as the major's 
principal field. Graded coiusework in the major must have a grade-point a\erage of 
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 
Provost and the chairman 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 specifv 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 studv or career. 

The student's academic adviser forwards the application to the appropriate 
dixision chairman. The chairman consults with the Pro\ost; then the chairman 
notifies the faculty adviser of the acceptance or rejection of the proposal, and the 
adviser contacts the student. 



76 



The degree awarded upon successful completion of an appro\efl indi\ ifluallv 
planned major is Baclielor of Arts. 

Pre-medical 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 pre-medical 
adviser. It is desirable for the pre-medical student to begin the process of under- 
graduate program planning with a pre-medical 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 comple- 
tion of a specified sequence of courses in the natural sciences as well as the 
submission of acceptable scores on appropriate standardized tests. However, pre- 
medical 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 veteri- 
nary 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 fust 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 Ad\'iser. 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. 



Pre-legal 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 pre-law major. The student is advised, however, to take courses 
that enhance the basic skills of a liberally educated person: reading with com- 
prehension, writing, speaking, and reasoning. The student is encouraged to 
become more familiar with political, economic, and social institutions as thev have 
developed historically and as they function in contemporary society. Students are 
referred to the Pre-law Handbook, which is available in the University Bookstore, 
for a more complete discussion of the desirable aspects of a pre-law curriculum. 

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



77 



Pre-seminary 

Pre-seminary students should plan a curriculum with emphasis on philosophy, 
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 recommended 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: Cooperative 
Education and Internships. These programs provide students with the oppor- 
tunity to have an employment experience designed to promote their professional 
and personal growth. They also allow students to explore particular 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. 

Internships 

Students with a minimum grade-point average of 2.8 may qualify to begin an 
internship experience in the sophomore year. Every internship requires a state- 
ment 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, up to a maximum of 15 hours. 

Cooperative Education 

Cooperative Education is a non-credit program in which students with a 
grade-point average of 2.5 alternate semesters of work and study until graduation. 
Students begin the co-op experience in their junior year. Opportunities are 
available with major employers in the Atlanta area. 

A student who participates in a University sponsored full-time cooperative 
education experience is considered to be a full-time Oglethorpe student. This will 
be true even though it precludes his or her enrolling in a full-time schedule of 
classes, provided: (1) he or she was enrolled in a full-time schedule of classes at 
Oglethorpe during the semester immediately preceding the cooperative education 
experience; and (2) he or she intends to enroll as a full-time student at Oglethorpe 
in the subsequent semester. 

Students who are interested in an internship or cooperative education experi- 
ence should first consult with their faculty adviser and then visit the Office of 
Career Planning and Placement in Emerson Student Center. 



78 



Cross Registration 



Oglethorpe University is a member of the University Clenler in Georgia, a 
consortium ot institutions of higher efUication in the Atlanta/Athens area. Through 
the University Center, students may ennMi in courses at any other member 
institution. The student need not be athnitted to the other institution and com- 
pletes all procedures, including payment of tuition, at Oglethorpe. 

Courses taken at University Cienter institutions on a cross-registration basis 
count as Oglethorpe comses for the purpose of meeting the residency requirement, 
that is, that the last 60 hours of course credit preceding graduation be completed at 
Oglethorpe. 

Interested students should consult the Registrar for program details. 



Interdisciplinary Majors 



Interdisciplinary majors are offered in American Studies, Business Admin- 
istration 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 disci- 
plines (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 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 required courses in American literature and history may not be used to 
satisfy core requirements. The American Experience, 2141, should be taken in the 
freshman or sophomore year. The seminar courses 3477 and 4141, are 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. 

Requirements of the major include completion of the following nine courses: 

2127 American Literatine: The Puritans to Realism

The courses in American literature and American history may not be used to 
satisfy core requirements. 

Business Administration and Behavioral Science 

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

The major consists of eleven 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 administration courses and 
courses in behavioral sciences. A "C" average in coursework in the major is required 
for completion of this major. The degree awarded is the Bachelor of Arts.

Four semesters study of a foreign language is re(juiied, or demonstration of 
proficiency in a foreign language whicfi would be equivalent to four semesters of 
study. 

A study abroad experience — a summer session or semester at a foreign 
university — is the preferred metfiod for fulfilling this requirement. Students may 
plan to complete the language requirement 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 oppor- 
tunities. Advisers who specialize in the international studies major can acquaint 
students with a wide variety of foreign study programs. 

Cultinal Studies of Europe I and 11 or Eastern Studies I and 11 may be offi^red 
to satisfy this requirement. 

Note: Students who graduated from a secondary school located abroad at which 
the language of instruction was not English may satisfy the language 
requirement, above, witli English as a Second Language 1 and IL They may 
satisfy the study abroad requirement via their residency in the United States. 

Mathematics and Computer Science 

Since its inception as an academic discipline, computer science has been closely 
associated with mathematics. Many of the field's pioneers are mathematicians by 
training. Indeed, modern computer science would not be possible 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 disci- 
pline, 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 loecome familiar with ways in which modern 
computational tools have made possible work in mathematics that would otherwise 
be prohibitively laborious. Understanding 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. 

Requirements of the major include completion of the following courses: 

1333 Calculus I 

1334 Calculus 11 

2331 Calculus III 

2332 Calculus IV 

2333 Differential Equations

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 scho(jl or an\ 
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 prospectixe employers. The course 
Advanced Writing for Business and the Professions focuses on the kinds of 
speaking anci 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 tise their skill with words — a major emphasis of every English coinse. 
They go into teaching, and sometimes work for publishers, television stations, film- 
making companies, or computer firms. They write press releases, training man- 
uals, 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, cultiual associations, and radio and television 
stations. Such experiences enhance students' chances of finding the jobs thev want 
after graduation.

Division II 

History, Politics 
and International Studies 




History 



In 1989, this division changed its name from the Division of History and 
Political Studies to the Division of History, Politics, and International Studies. This 
change reflects the importance of international studies at Oglethorpe University. A 
new faculty member in Asian studies has been named for Academic Year 1990-91. 
Courses in Asian studies will be added to the curriculum. Modifications in the 
international studies major (currently listed as an interdisciplinary major) will be 
undertaken. Other aspects of international studies will be developed and will be 
publicized as they occur and included in future publications of the Bulletin. 

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 various forms of intellectual expression. An appreciation for the ^Vestern 
heritage is one of its main objectives. 

At Oglethorpe in the areas of European and American histor}, two-semester 
surveys are studied at the freshman and sophomore levels respectixeh. \\estern 
Civilization I and II, the freshman-level survey courses, are required for gradua- 
tion. Above the sophomore level, there are period and topical courses. 

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 serxice. Particular stress is placed on a mastery 
of the techniques of research which enhance one's usefulness in man) 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 historx^ 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.

Politics 

The focus of political studies at Oglethorpe University is on the interpretation 
of events, both past and current, from a perspective informed bv the studv of 
political thought and institutions. In addition, students in this discipline develop 
their capacity to compare analagous things and to generalize. The abilitv to read 
difficult texts carefully and thoughtfully is especially important in political theory 
courses. Students in political studies develop some tolerance for ambiguitv and 
disagreement, while at the same time learning to appreciate the difference between 
informed and uniformed opinion. Political studies provides good training for life in 
a world that is, for better or worse, shaped profoundlv by political institutions. It is 
especially appropriate for those interested in careers in law, business, teaching, 
journalism, and government.

Division III 



Science and Mathematics 




To ensure 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 recjuirements as well as those departmental and di\isional 
requirements that apply to the specific degree. 

Three semesters of the course Science Seminar (described under Biology 
below), are required for all science majors. A grade-point average of 2.00 or higher 
in all courses listed as required for the major must be achie\ed in order to graduate 
in one of the fields within the division. 



Biology 



The curriculum in biology provides a foundation in both classical and contem- 
porary biological concepts and prepares the student for continuing intellectual 
growth and professional development in the life sciences. The program supplies the 
appropriate background for employment in research institutions, industry, and 
government; the curriculum also prepares students for graduate school and for 
professional schools of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and the like. 
Students planning to attend graduate or professional schools should recognize that 
admission to such schools is often highly competitive. Ciompletion of a biology 
major does not ensure admission to these schools.

mathematics; three semester hours of Science Seminar. (Three of the above listed 
courses. General Biology I, General Chemistry I, and a mathematics course, fidtill 
core requirements. They are thus not part of the major /;rrsv'.) 

Minor 

The recjuirements for a minor in biology are General Biology I and II, 
Genetics, and Microbiology; students minoring in biology are not exempt from the 
prerec|uisites for the biology courses and thus will also complete General Chemistry 
I and II (with laboratories) and Organic Chemistry I and II (with laboratories).

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 curricukun 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 curricukun includes laboratorv courses. 
These courses teach the techniques and skills used in chemical experimentation. 

A student who has completed the Bachelor of Science program in chemistrv 
has several career options. These options include technical or analytical work in a 
chemical laboratory and non-research positions in the chemical industrv such as 
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 dentistr), would enter 
the appropriate professional school after receiving the Bachelor of Science degree.

Medical Technology 



Medical technologists play an important role in the deliverv (,)f modern health 
care. Although hospitals and clinics are their traditional sites of empkn ment, 
medical technologists also find opportunities in manv 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 of Bachelor of Science in Medical 
Technology undertake their clinical training at an approved institution after 
successful completion of prerequisite academic coursework at Oglethorpe Iniver- 
sity. Prere(;]uisites lor clinical [programs varv among institutions; therefore, stu- 
dents should seek additional advisement from the program to which the\ are 
applving. This will enable the student and the Oglethorpe achiser to design the 



120 



proper secjiieiKe of courses and [o eslal)lish an appropriate time frame for 
completion of degree retjiiirements. C^oiirses to be completed at Oglethoipe will 
usually include the following: General Biology I and II, Microbiology, Human 
Physiology, General Ghemistry I and II (with laboratories). Organic Ghemistry I 
and II (with laboratories), Elementary Quantitative Analysis, (College Algebra or 
Galculus I, and appropriate core courses. At least 60 semester hours nuist 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 creati\e thought and the science of 
logical thought. Problem-sohing 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, mathematics provides tools fundamental for analysis of prob- 
lems 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 
stud)' or immediate employment. Students with mathematical training at the 
undergraduate level are sought by employers in business, government, and indus- 
try. Career opportunities for mathematics majors exist in areas such as computer 
programming, operations research, statistics, and applied mathematics. 

Major 

1 he object of the coinse of studies leading to a major in mathematics is to 
provide the student with a comprehensi\e backgroiuid in classical analysis and a 
broad introduction to the topics of modern and contemporary mathematics. The 
following mathematics courses are required: Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, 
Calculus IV, Differential Equations, Discrete Mathematics, Linear Algebra, 
Abstract Algebra, Special Topics in Mathematics I and II, and one mathematics

Division IV 



Behavioral Sciences 




Psychology 



Psychology uses scientific methods to study a broad range (jf topics related to 
human behavior and mental processes including motivation, learning and mem- 
ory, human development and personality, psychological disorders, social interac- 
tion, and physiologial bases for behavior and thcmght. 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 evaluation 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 toleiant obser\er of human beha\ior and 
individual differences. Many students with a background in psychology choose 
careers in psychology-related fields such as counseling, ps) chotherapy, 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, management, public relations, publishing, and communications.

Division V 

Economics and 
Business Administration 




Five degree programs are offered in tfie Division of Economics and Business 
Administration. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree may be earned 
with a major in accounting, business administration, economics, or business 
administration and computer science. A Bachelor of Arts degree program is offered 
with a major in economics. Computer science courses are offered through the 
division. 

All students who pursue degree programs within the division are required to 
complete: Calculus I (or a more advanced course in calculus); Statistics; Manage- 
ment Science; Introduction to Computer Applications Software, or Introduction to 
Computer Science, or Principles of Computer Programming; Intermediate Micro- 
economics; and Intermediate Macroeconomics. Additional major requirements are 
listed under the particular disciplinary headings in this section. Major require- 
ments may be satisfied with a course in the division only if the grade received is 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 (I) the ability to 
think independently, (2) knowledge of business terminology and business institu- 
tions, both domestic and international, and (3) communication skills. The abilitv to 
think independently is enhanced through study of the courses in the core curricu- 
lum and through a requirement that each student must complete advanced ^\•ork in 
at least one area of business. Courses in economics and the functional areas of 
business administration introduce students to business institutions, terminologv. 
and methods of inquiry. A required coinse 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 in 
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 



Tlie essence of accounting is measurement and communication. I lie ol)jective 
is to provide information that is useful to decision-makers who must choose 
between economic alternatives. Accordingly, the field focuses on information con- 
cerning economic resources, claims to those resources, and the results of economic 
acti\ity. The purpose of the major in accoiuiting 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 evalua- 
tion 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 derixation 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 helpfid 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.

states. 

Program Approval: Department of Education of the Stale of Cieorgia. 
Accreditation: Southern Association (if (Colleges and Schools. 
For application please write: Office of Admissions 
Oglethorpe L'niversity 
Atlanta, Georgia :^()3 19-2797 
or call 233-6864 or 261-1441. 



Program 



The graduate program offers work leading to the degree Master of Arts in 
Education with concentration in early and middle grades. A minimum of 25 
percent of the courses used to meet degree refjuirements will contain a field-based 
component. 

Completion of the master's program requires the following steps: 

1. Full admission to the graduate program. 

2. Admission to candidacy; apply after completion of 12 semester hours 
graduate credit at Oglethorpe. 

3. Satisfactory completion of a comprehensive final examination. Apply after

Organization 



The Education Division is organized as one of the six academic di\ isions of the 
University. All graduate work is administered by the Education 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 chairman of the Education 
Division. 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide well-qualified students 
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 stud\ includes more than the passing of prescribed 
courses and the meeting of minimum requirements. .\11 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.
