COLLEGE 

MISERICORDIA 



General Information 



College Misericordia, a Catholic institution of 
higher learning established in 1924 for the advanced 
education of women, is located on a beautiful 100 
acre campus in the suburban community of Dallas, 
Pennsylvania. 

Since its establishment in 1924 by the Wilkes-Barre 
foundation of the Religious Sisters of Mercy of the 
Union, College Misericordia has pursued a policy of 
growth, both in terms of physical expansion and in 
new academic programs. The result has been the 
development of a modern, four-year, liberal arts col- 
lege providing educational and cultural opportunities 
for both women and men in the community and retur- 
ning to the area educated students whose leader- 
ship is evident in the community. 

The physical growth of College Misericordia has 
been a steady attempt to serve educational needs 
since the laying of the cornerstone, September 24, 
1922. McAuley Hall was opened as a student 
residence, April, 1930, and wings were added to the 
central administration building in 1931. McGann Hall, 
another student residence, was completed in 1946. 
Rosary Hall was acquired in 1949, Walsh Memorial 
Auditorium was built in 1952, and Regina Hall was 
opened in 1956. The Hafey Science Hall was com- 
pleted May, 1957. In September, 1963, the construc- 
tion of two additional buildings was completed; the 
Merrick Student Center and the Alumnae Residence 
Hall. Library expansion was completed in 1972; North 
Hall was completed in 1972 and the name changed to 
McHaleHall in 1978. 

The first college to be established in Luzerne 
County, College Misericordia has for half a century 



steadily expanded educational and cultural offerings 
for the benefit of its day and resident students as 
well as all citizens of Wyoming Valley and surround- 
ing areas. 



NATURE AND PURPOSES 



College Misericordia is a Catholic institution of 
higher education growing out of the history and 
value system of its sponsoring group, the Sisters of 
Mercy. At the core of the institution is the ideal 
which inspired Catherine McAuley's founding of the 
Institute of Mercy, that is. compassionate service 
through the ministries of teaching and healing. Com- 
mitted to the promotion of justice, the sponsoring 
group, the Sisters of Mercy, seek to share that com- 
mitment with lay colleagues and with students. It is 
that same commitment which gives direction and 
purpose to academic curricula, to co-curricular and 
extra-curricular activity, encouraging in all members 
of the College community a sense of responsibility 
for bringing their gifts to bear on critical issues of 
justice through service. 

The College is committed to giving witness to the 
world of the gospel message of Jesus Christ as the 
source of values and attitudes. We acknowledge and 
affirm our roots in the Catholic tradition and see it as 
incumbent upon us to provide a variety of expres- 
sions of that faith, for example, through the op- 
portunity to share worship and through an active 
campus ministry program. Theological study is 
rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, while pro- 
viding for the exploration of other traditions for their 
intrinsic merit. In these ways College Misericordia 
encourages the examination and clarification of 
religious thought and values, and urges an examina- 
tion of social responsibility in light of the gospel 
message. 

The College affirms its commitment to a strong 
liberal arts core in all its curricula and supports the 
belief that all professional and pre-professional 
education emanates from and is influenced by a 



liberal arts tradition. Such a position is based upon 
several beliefs; namely, that liberation from ig- 
norance and prejudice is fundamental to personal 
and professional development; that a common 
knowledge base fosters human understanding; that 
the formation of critical, creative and aesthetic 
qualities is important to human growth and that a 
broad based education is vital to the development of 
competencies which allow for flexible life planning. 

The value orientation which motivates the college 
community toward service and social responsibility 
is nurtured in and focused on a commitment to 
scholarship which is at the heart of College 
Misericordia. It is a scholarship which emphasizes 
the qu lity of a person-oriented teaching/learning 
process. Such scholarship is not an end in itself, but 
rather supports and encourages both the personal 
growth of all members of the College Misericordia 
community and the acceptance of individual and 
shared responsiblities. Significant in this value 
orientation is the acknowledgment of our history and 
tradition in relation to the education of women. Thus, 
we affirm our commitment to the development of 
human potential among all our students while at the 
same time we emphasize our responsibility to direct 
our resources to ways of acting out a tradition which 
is at the core of the history of the College, namely 
the encouragement and enhancement of women's 
contributions to society and to the Church. 

LOCATION 

The College is located on Lake Street in Dallas, 
nine miles from Wilkes-Barre. It is accessible by bus 
and plane from all metropolitan areas. The drive to 
New York or Philadelphia takes approximately three 
hours. 



LIBRARY 



The library of College Misericordia is located on 
the second floor of the Administration Building. It 



provides a well-chosen and ever-growing collection 
of books, periodicals, and other communication 
media to meet the needs of the students and faculty 
for study and research. 

Open circulation stacks, pleasant reading areas 
and individual carrels encourage the use of the 
library. A copy of the guide issued by the library is 
given to every student. College Misericordia Library 
is a member of the Northeastern Pennsylvania 
Bibliographic Center through which the resources of 
a dozen area libraries are made available to College 
Misericordia students and faculty. 



COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS 

King's College 

Since 1968, King's College and College Misericor- 
dia have offered their regularly enrolled students an 
attractive opportunity to cross-register for courses 
and/or majors not given on the home campus. At the 
time of pre-registration, a list of courses for which 
students may cross-register for the coming 
semester is published by each college. Full-time 
students who meet any specified prerequisites and 
who are in good academic standing are eligible. 
Cross-registration is" ordinarily permitted only to 
juniors and seniors and requires the approval of the 
student's major department. No additional tuition 
charge is made; cross-registration courses are con- 
sidered part of the regular full-time registration. 
Students register through the Registrar at the col- 
lege where they are enrolled as a degree candidate. 
Courses carry full academic credit and grade value 
and are treated as part of the student's regular 
course load. Interested students should confer with 
the Registrar for further details. 



University of Scranton 

In 1961 College Misericordia entered into a 
cooperative program of graduate studies with the 
University of Scranton. 

The program arranged by the joint faculties of Col- 
lege Misericordia and the University of Scranton pro- 
vides opportunities for regular college students to 
complete both the bachelor's and master's degrees 
within five years. 

The five-year program leading to the bachelor's 
degree from College Misericordia and the master's 
degree from the University of Scranton has been in- 
itiated in Art and Music. 



Marywood College 

The department of Behavioral Sciences and Social 
Work, in conjunction with Marywood College 
Graduate School of Social Work offers a five-year 
program leading to a Master of Social Work degree. 
Students graduating from College Misericordia with 
a major in Social Work, who meet the admissions 
criteria of the cooperative program, may complete 
their studies for an M.S.W. degree in one year rather 
than in the traditional two years. 



Two-Year Colleges 

Luzerne County Community College, Keystone 
Junior College, Lackawanna Junior College and Col- 
lege Misericordia have agreed to mutual cooperation 
in correlating their respective programs for the 
Associate in Arts or Associate in Science and the 
Bachelor's degree in Arts or Sciences. Subject to 
the terms of this agreement, the student who has 



earned the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science 
degree at Luzerne County Community College is 
assured admission to College Misericordia and ad- 
vanced standing credit for courses of study com- 
pleted at Luzerne County Community College and 
Keystone Junior College. Further information is 
available in the Admissions Office. 



NEPIC 

College Misericordia is one of the seven member 
colleges of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Indepen- 
dent Colleges (NEPIC), an association of college ad- 
ministrators in the area organized in 1964 for pur- 
poses of mutual cooperation and support that they 
might serve the best interests of their students and 
improve the educational welfare of the Com- 
monwealth.

University of Scranton (Scranton, Pa.) 

Wilkes College (Wilkes-Barre. Pa.) 

The Presidents and Academic Deans of these in- 
stitutions meet regularly during the academic year to 
discuss matters of common concern and to plan 
cooperative action in the interest of higher education 
in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Other NEPIC ad- 
ministrators, such as Registrars and Financial Aid of- 
ficers, also meet to discuss common interests. 
NEPIC engages in a continuing effort to inform the 
public of the value of private higher education and to 
win support for the NEPIC institutions commen- 
surate with their long record of public service.

Student Life 

CO-CURRICULAR INTERESTS 



With academic interests and activities as their cen- 
tral concentration, College Misericordia students are 
urged to develop a moral and spiritual value system 
in a climate which offers cultural and social op- 
portunities as well as planned programs for physical 
fitness. 



FRESHMAN ORIENTATION 

Each freshman begins orientation to Misericordia 
after receiving formal notification of acceptance from 
the college. Upon the student's arrival at the col- 
lege, a well organized program is planned. Members 
of the administration, faculty and student body assist 
in helping the freshman with various aspects of cam- 
pus life. Guidance is given in the academic as well as 
in the social adjustment to living in a college com- 
munity. 



RESIDENCE 



Approximately 485 resident students can be ac- 
commodated at College Misericordia. Resident 
facilities include McAuley Hall, Walsh Hall, Alumnae 
Hall, McHale Hall, Mercy Center and two houses for 
senior students, Mercy House and Carlow House. 

Resident students must be full-time students of 
College Misericordia. The College furnishes each 
room with beds, mattresses, dressers, student 
desks, chairs and a bookshelf. Students supply any 
additional furnishings. 

To reserve a room in the college residences a stu- 
dent submits the required $75.00 residence hall 
deposit for each semester and a $75.00 room damage 
fee to be paid when a student begins to reside at Col- 



lege Misericordia. The room damage fee will be 
returned when the student graduates or withdraws 
from College Misericordia residence halls provided 
that no damage to the property occurs. 

At the close of the academic year the residence 
halls are opened to those graduating until the day 
after graduation. Underclassmen will leave the 
residence halls within twenty-four hours after the 
last exam and/or class. The residence halls are not 
available for use by the students during the 
Thanksgiving, Christmas and Interterm Recess or at 
the Easter Recess. 

All personal belongings are removed by students 
from the residence halls at the end of the academic 
year. 

Meals are provided in the Student Union Dining 
Hall. Since the meals must be planned on the basis 
of total participation by the resident community, no 
adjustment in fees can be expected for meals not 
taken on campus. 

College Misericordia reserves the right to dismiss 
from any of its residence hall any students who fail to 
comply with the policies of resident living as stated 
by College Misericordia. Should this become 
necessary no refund of room charges will be made. 



DINING AND LOUNGE AREAS

commodate residents and commuters. The dining 
room, the coffee house, the lounge and recreation 
areas offer a pleasant setting for formal or informal 
social events.

Liturgies are celebrated daily, and on Saturday after- 
noons (Folk Mass) and Sunday mornings. A Campus 
Ministry Team, trained in both spiritual and 
psychological counseling, is available for consulta- 
tion at all times. The College itself is a Christian 
Community whose size lends itself to warm, friendly 
encounters with faculty, administration, and staff. By 
example and encouragement the College Commun- 
ity contributes to an atmosphere conducive to the 
development of each student's unique, Christian 
life-style.

tion for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women and the 
Keystone Conference for Men. Its varsity teams 
compete in such sports as basketball, field hockey, 
softball and volleyball for women and basketball for 
men. There are at the present time developing pro- 
grams for both men and women in tennis and cross-

Intramural sports are offered through the 
Misericordia Athletic Association (MAA). Its pur- 
pose, besides offering recreational activities, is to 
develop sportsmanship, spirit and enjoyment either 
as participant or spectator. 




Under the supervision of the Dean of Students,

Counseling Service, Council for Resident Affairs, 
Class and Club Moderators, Health Service and Of- 
fice of Student Activities. In each of these areas in- 
dividual counseling can be obtained from capable 
personnel who are concerned with the student as a 
person and are interested in the full development of 
each one. 

The academic counseling is under the supervision 
of the Academic Dean, assisted by program direc- 
tors and academic advisors. 

The spiritual counseling of the students is the 
responsiblity of the College Chaplain and the other 
campus ministers. 



COUNSELING SERVICE 

The Counseling Center is located on the first floor, 
McAuley Hall. 

Consistent with Misericordia goals, the goal of the 
counseling department is to offer a cluster of profes- 
sional services and related experiences which will 
maximize a student's chances for making responsi- 
ble decisions relating to educational, personal, 
social, and vocational development. Further, these 
decisions should be appropriate to and in con- 
sonance with the student's interests, aptitudes, 
needs, values, and potential. 

Counseling Services provides a cluster of related 
services and functions, the most important of which 
is personal counseling. Also included are informa- 
tion services, assessment, and psychological inven- 
tory services, consultative services, research and 
evaluation services and referral services. 

The essential counseling functions are: 

1. Counseling, including individual and group 
approaches and processes. 

2. Information services, including information on 
vocational development, educational and train- 



10 



ing opportunties, personal and social develop- 
ment opportunities and orientation to available 
resources. 

3. Consultative services with other student 
services, with instructional staff, with college 
administrators and with social agencies which 
carry on functions identical, related, or parallel 
to the College's guidance functions. 

4. Referral services as available, both within the 
institution and to social welfare, educational, 
vocational, and health agencies and institutions 
outside the college which can facilitate the stu- 
dent's growth and development. 

5. Research and evaluation to include research 
and evaluation of counseling program. 

CENTER FOR CAREER PLANNING

The Center for Career Planning and Placement, 
located in the Alumni Office, first floor of the Ad- 
ministration Building, is the central career informa- 
tion and placement office for both current students 
and alumni, offering a continuum of services — a 
comprehensive program to help students to under- 
stand themselves, to understand the relationship e- 
tween academic and vocational choices, to discover 
and develop alternatives, and finally, to help them 
make the transition from the academic world to the 
world of work. 

The Career Library includes information on 
careers and career development, job hunting tech- 
niques and strategies, employers and employment 
(including summer jobs) and graduate schools.

Misericordia's Health Service is to assist and main- 
tain the optimum health of each member of the col- 
lege community. Preventive medicine, good health 



teaching, and safety measures are stressed through 
school programs and individual counseling as need- 
ed. The Health Service is under the supervision of a 
Director working in co-operation with the school 
physician, and staffed with Registered Nurses. The 
Infirmary is operated on a daily schedule. Transpor- 
tation is provided for students to area hospitals and 
physician's office when needed. 

The college requires a complete physical and 
medical examination upon entry. A record is kept on 
file in the Health Office, and all information is kept 
confidential.

FINANCIAL AID GRANTS 
AND SCHOLARSHIPS 

The primary obligation for meeting college costs 
lies with the parents and/or the student. Because 
the resources of the family in many instances are not 
sufficient to meet these expenses, financial 
assistance is provided to eligible students through 
federal, state and college funds. These funds are 
offered by way of grants, loans and work. Students 
and their parents should bear in mind that in many 
instances students must be willing to accept loans 
and work as well as grants in order to meet their 
financial need. 



Pell Grant (Formerly Basic Grant) (federal) 

This program provides grants ranging from $200 up 
to $1800 depending upon financial need and educa- 
tional costs. Eligible students may receive this grant 
for as long as it takes to complete the first 
undergraduate degree. Application is made by com- 
pleting the PHEAA/BEOG form or a state Financial 
Aid Form (FAF). All students seeking financial aid 
from the college are expected to apply for this grant. 



20 



Supplemental Education 
Opportunity Grant (federal) 

This program is available to undergraduate 
students with demonstrated financial need. Awards 
range from $200 up to $2000 yearly depending upon 
need, available funds, and other aid. A student may 
receive supplemental grants during the period 
required to complete the first undergraduate 
degree. Students are notified of their grant through 
an award letter from the college. 



Nursing Scholarships 

Federal grants are available for students enrolled 
at least half-time in the Department of Nursing. 
Awards ranging from $100 up to $2000 are based upon 
financial need. Application is made through the 
financial aid office of the college. 



PHEAA Grant 

(Pennsylvania State Scholarship) 

All students who are residents of Pennsylvania 
and are enrolled on a full-time basis are expected to 
apply for this grant. Awards vary from $100 to $1500 
per academic year. Eligibility and amount of the 
grant is determined by the Pennsylvania Higher 
Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). The student 
applies directly to PHEAA for this grant by com- 
pleting a PHEAA/BEOG composite form. The 
deadline for applying is usually May 1. 



Other State Scholarships and Grants 

Many states provide grants to their residents 
which can be used at out-of-state institutions such 
as College Misericordia. These states include New 
Jersey, Maryland, Ohio, Rhode Island, Connecticut, 
Massachusetts, and West Virginia. Prospective 



students should contact a high school guidance of- 
fice, their state higher education office, or our finan- 
cial aid office to learn about their state programs and 
to obtain applications. 

College Grants 

Honor Scholarships — To demonstrate its commit- 
ment to academic excellence, the college awards 
financial assistance to incoming freshmen and 
transfer students who have attained outstanding 
academic records. The scholarships are renewable 
until graduation provided minimum grade point 
averages are maintained as follows: freshman year, 
3.0 cumulative average; sophomore year, 3.2 
cumulative average; junior year, 3.4 cumulative 
average. Students apply directly to the Admissions 
Office of the college for this scholarship. 

College Grants — College Misericordia, through 
its own fund-raising efforts, maintains an extensive 
college grant program which helps over 50% of our 
students to meet their college costs. These grants 
which are based on need are usually offered to in- 
coming freshmen and transfers. While adhering to 
the philosophy of providing assistance to students 
with need, the college also expresses its commit- 
ment to a liberal arts education through its college 
grant program. In order to continue receiving this 
aid, the student must maintain academic progress 
and participate in at least one college-approved 
extra-curricular activity. The college grant program 
is designed to assist students with need who also 
participate in the activities of the college community. 

Act 101 Grants — Students accepted through the 
Act 101 program are guaranteed grants up to $500 
each year and $150 bookstore credit each year. The 
exact amount of the grant will be based upon in- 
dividual financial need and other aid. This program 
provides affordable educational opportunity for 
educationally and economically disadvantaged 
residents of Pennsylvania who meet Act 101 eligibil- 
ity requirements. These grants are renewable 
through the sophomore year provided the student 



21 



maintains academic progress. For the junior and 
senior years, students are eligible for aid through 
the regular college grant program. Students should 
apply for the Act 101 program through the Admis- 
sions Office of the college. 

Music Performance Award — A performance 
award is given to the incoming freshman who 
demonstrate exceptional proficiency in performance 
during an audition. Applicants must have auditioned 
for this award by April 1. The award is renewable an- 
nually under the same conditions as the Honor 
Scholarship. Audition forms are sent along with ap- 
plications for admission to all music majors. 



Loans 

Guaranteed Student Loan — This program 
enables a student to borrow directly from a bank or 
other participating lender such as a savings and loan 
association or credit union. Currently, a dependent 
student may borrow up to $2,500 per year at a 9% in- 
terest rate. As of January 1, 1981, an independent 
student may borrow up to $3,000 per year. The exact 
amount is determined by educational costs minus 
resources and whether the student is enrolled as a 
half-time or full-time student. Applications and fur- 
ther qualifying information can be obtained from the 
applicant's lender. 

National Direct Student Loan — This program pro- 
vides loans at the low interest rate of 4% to students 
who exhibit financial need. To receive this aid, a stu- 
dent ust be enrolled on at least a half-time basis. 
Federal regulations provide that a student may bor- 
row up to $3,000 for the first two undergraduate years 
with a $6,000 maximum. Repayment begins 6 months 
after graduation or withdrawal from college. 
Deferments of repayments and cancellation provis- 
ions are available for certain types of employment. A 
student is notified of this aid through an award letter 
from the college. 

Nursing Loans — Nursing students who 
demonstrate financial need may apply for this low- 
interest loan through the financial aid office of the 



college. The nursing loan is similar to the National 
Direct Student Loan in interest charged, repayment 
and deferments. 



Employment 

College Work-Study — This program, funded by 
the federal government and the college, provides 
jobs for students on a part-time basis during the 
academic year and on a full-time basis during the 
summer. Jobs are available both on the campus and 
off-campus in the surrounding communities. Stu- 
dents must exhibit a financial need in order to be 
eligible. Whenever possible, students will be assign- 
ed jobs related to their major fields of study. 

Institutional Work-Study — The college maintains 
this work-study program entirely through its own 
funds. It is designed to assist students who are not 
eligible for the federal program, but who need to 
earn part of their college expenses through employ- 
ment. 

Part-time Jobs — Some part-time employment is 
available in the local community for students. For 
further information, contact the college placement 
office. 



Tuition Payment Plan 

This plan is offered to those who wish to pay all or 
part of their college costs through monthly in- 
stallments. This method of payment is offered by the

applications for the Pell Grant (Basic Grant) and 
their state grant program where available. All 
aid for which a student wishes to be considered 
should be checked on the application. 

3. Applications for aid should be submitted by the 
following dates: 

Incoming freshmen and transfers March 1 
Upperclassmen April 1 

Students should be aware of their own state's 
deadline for applying for state grants. Applica- 
tions and financial aid forms will be accepted 
later but no assurance can be made that funds 
will be available for late applicants. PHEAA ap- 
plications should be mailed as early as possible 
and no later than May 1 . 

4. Students must apply for financial aid each year. 
Generally, the aid is renewed provided there is 



evidence of continued need and academic pro- 
gression towards a degree. Academic progress 
is defined as the completion of 24 credit hours 
during each academic year. Failure to complete 
this requirement results in the loss of college, 
state, and federal aid until academic progress is 
met. 

5. Aid awarded through College Misericordia is 
based upon the financial need of the student, 
aid awarded to the student through other 
sources, and the amount of funds available to 
the college. Since funds are limited, it is not 
always possible to meet the complete need of 
each student. 

6. Aid awarded to students from outside sources 
must be reported to the financial aid office by 
the student. College Misericordia reserves the 
right to adjust aid if the student receives aid in 
excess of financial need. 

7. Aid funded through all sources except the 
Work-Study Programs is deducted from the stu- 
dent's bill each semester. Students on the 
work-study programs are paid monthly. 

8. Inquiries regarding financial aid should be 
directed to the Coordinator of Financial Aid. 



VETERANS 

College Misericordia is approved by the Veterans 
Administration for the education of veterans of the 
Armed Services. A veteran who is eligible to receive 
V.A. benefits should request the Registrar's Office 
to send out the necessary enrollment forms to the 
Veterans Administration. An office of Veterans Af- 
fairs is staffed by veterans in Merrick Hall to handle 
the questions of and to act as advocate for veterans 
enrolled at the college.

Academic Affairs 



COURSE CREDITS AND ACADEMIC LOAD 

The semester hour credit represents one hour of 
class or two to three hours of laboratory a week for 
one semester. 

Twelve semester hours will be considered the 
minimum load for full-time status. 

Sixteen semester hours is the average schedule. 
Eighteen semester hours is normally the maximum 
course load. Permission to carry more than the max- 
imum academic load depends on the student's 
scholarship and must be obtained in writing from the 
Academic Dean. 



REGISTRATION AND SCHEDULE 
ALTERATIONS 

Each student, after consultation with her or his 
academic advisor, must register for courses with the 
Registrar. No student will be given credit for any 
course not registered with the Registrar. 

A grade of "F" will be given to any student who 
drops a course without permission of the Academic 
Dean. Students may withdraw from classes up to the 
date specified on the current academic calendar with 
the Dean's permission. During the first week of 
classes (Drop-Add Period), schedule alterations can 
be made in the Registrar's Office without penalty. 



CLASS ATTENDANCE 

Regular and punctual attendance at all classes and 
laboratory sessions is the responsibility of each stu- 
dent. Each faculty member will make clear his or her 
view concerning absences from class and any 
resulting penalties. Faculty members are expected 



25 



to judge whether absences are jeopardizing a stu- 
dent's academic status. If in the judgment of the in- 
structor, the student is academically deficient 
oecause of absences, the instructor should submit 
this matter in writing to the Academic Dean. 

All students participating in clinical practica, stu- 
dent teaching, and other internship experiences and 
co-operative programs must provide their own 
transportation. Public transportation also is 
available. 



The Grade "I" indicates that the student has been 
prevented from completing the course for serious 
reasons. An incomplete not removed by the end of 6 
weeks becomes an "F". If a failure is incurred in a 
required course, the course must be repeated. It is 
the responsiblity of the student to contract in writing 
with the instructor for a grade of Incomplete. Con- 
tract fee is $5.00. 

Grade reports are sent to the student at the end of 
each semester. 



CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

For admission to the sophomore year a student 
must have completed 30 semester hours of work; to 
the junior year, 60 semester hours; to the senior 
year, 90 semester hours. 

NATIONAL TEACHER EXAMINATION 

The seniors in education are expected to take the 
National Teacher Examination administered at the 
College twice each year. 

GRADES AND QUALITY POINTS 

Requirements for the degrees are expressed in 
hours, indicating the amount of work, and in quality 
points, indicating the performance of work. The 
grade of a student's work in each subject is deter- 
mined by the combined results of examinations and 
classwork and is indicated as follows: 



A (96-100) 


4.0 quality points 


B+ (91-95) 


3.5 quality points 


B (86-90) 


3.0 quality points 


C+ (81-85) 


2.5 quality points 


C (76-80) 


2.0 quality points 


D (70-75) 


1.0 quality points 


F (Below 70) 


0.0 quality points 


P 


0.0 quality points 


U 


0.0 quality points 



ACADEMIC ETHICAL STANDARDS 

College Misericordia expects its students to 
adhere to high ethical standards in pursuing their 
academic goals. Plagiarism and other forms of 
cheating will not be tolerated and will result in a loss 
of academic credit. 



ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Students entering their second semester will be 
placed on probation if their cumulative indices are 
below 1.50. Students entering their third semester 
will be placed on probation if their cumulative in- 
dices are below 1.75. Students entering their fourth 
and subsequent semesters will be placed on proba- 
tion if their cumulative indices are below 2.0. 

Students are advised to check with the divisions 
which also may require a specific average in the 
major. 

All transfer students are expected to have a 2.0 
standing to be matriculated into the College. 
Transfer applicants with less than a 2.0 will be admit- 
ted only with the approval of the Academic Dean. 

A student on academic probation for two suc- 
cessive semesters is subject to suspension or 
dismissal from the College. 

A cumulative index of less than 1.0 at the end of 
the freshman year will bring automatic dismissal. 

Once dismissed, a student may not be readmitted 



26 



as a matriculating student at the College for one full 
year, and then, only if the G.P.A. has risen to a 2.0. 
Readmittance to the College does not necessarily 
imply readmittance to a major. After being readmit- 
ted, the student must maintain a cumulative index of 
2.0 or he or she will be permanently dismissed. 



WITHDRAWAL FROM COLLEGE 

Students planning to withdraw from the College 
must give written notice to the Academic Dean or, in 
the case of Continuing Education students, to the 
Dean of Continuing Education. 



TRANSCRIPT OF CREDITS 

No transcript will be issued during the periods of 
registration, examinations, and commencement. An 
official transcript is not given to the student, but is 
sent directly to the school or agency requesting it. 
All financial obligations must be met before a 
transcript is issued. A fee of $2 is required for each 
official transcript requested by a student. 



THE DEAN'S LIST 

The Dean's List includes those students who in 
any one semester attain a quality rating of 3.55 in 
their course work while carrying a minimum of 12 
hours. 



DEGREE WITH DISTINCTION

distinction, CUM LAUDE: with high distinction,

TEACHER CERTIFICATION 

College Misericordia is approved by the Depart- 
ment of Education of Pennsylvania for the prepara- 
tion of teachers in: 

Secondary Education Areas of Certification 
(grades 7-12) Biology, Communication (Theatre 
Arts), English, Social Studies, Mathematics. 

Elementary and Secondary Education (grades

graduates of College Misericordia opportunities to 
obtain Teacher Certification and teaching op- 
portunities in a wide geographical area. 

A cooperative arrangement also exists between 
College Misericordia and King's College in the area 
of Teacher Certifcation. 



PRE-LAW PROGRAM 

Based upon the recommendations of the Associa- 
tion of American Law Schools, there is no specific 
undergraduate curriculum required for admission to 
law school. Most law schools, however, recommend 



that prospective students have a broad liberal arts 
background as a preparation for the study of law. 

At College Misericordia, that background may be 
obtained through the pursuit of a Bachelor of Arts 
degree. Undergraduate courses in this program at 
Misericordia, with a Pre-Law Academic Concentra- 
tion, represent a sound preparation for those 
students who desire to go on to law school following 
graduation. 

The Division of Humanities offers a Pre-Law 
Academic Concentration developed to enable the 
pre-law student to supplement the core curriculum 
and academic major of the student's choice with 
courses helpful in preparing for the Law School Ad- 
mission Test and for admission to law school. 

In addition to the Pre-Law Academic Concentration 
in preparing for law school, students are advised to 
select undergraduate courses that develop ability in 
expression and comprehension of English, afford 
basic information about human institutions and 
values, and which cultivate the ability to think 
creatively and critically with thoroughness and in- 
dependence. 

Admission to law school is based upon the follow- 
ing factors: (1 ) possession of a baccalaureate degree 
from an accredited college or university: (2) satisfac- 
tory record of academic achievement in 
undergraduate program of study; (3) aptitude for the 
study of law as determined by satisfactory scores on 
the Law School Admission Test (LSAT); (4) appli- 
cant's good moral character. 

All interested students must register with the Pre- 
Law Advisor in the Department of History and 
Government where advice on course selection and 
information concerning application to law school can 
be obtained. 

Additional information may be obtained by con- 
sulting the annual Pre-Law Handbook prepared by 
the Association of American Law Schools and the 
Law School Admission Council. The Handbook can 
be obtained from the college bookstore or ordered 
from LSAC, Educational Testing Service, Box 944. 
Princeton, New Jersey 08540.

SOCIAL WORK 

College Misericordia offers a program of study that 
prepares the student for entry into the profession of

tual field practice. 

Students graduating from College Misericordia 
with a degree in Social Work may be eligible for ad- 
vanced standing in some thirty graduate schools of 
Social Work throughout the country. Further in- 
formation about this option is available from the

The department of Behavioral Sciences and Social 
Work, in conjunction with Marywood College 
Graduate School of Social Work, offers a five-year 
program leading to a Master of Social Work degree. 
Students graduating from College Misericordia with 
a major in Social Work, who meet the admissions 
criteria of the cooperative program, may complete 
their studies for an M.S.W. degree in one year rather 
than in the traditional two years. Further information

ings. It should not be used simply to assemble 
credits for graduation. To apply for an Independent 
Study one must make a preliminary definition of the 
topic or issue to be pursued, securing the permis- 
sion of the faculty sponsor and the chairperson of 
the division in which the Independent Study is 
undertaken. The faculty member or members spon- 
soring the Independent Study will be involved in 
planning and evaluating the project, but the student 
should be capable of independent work. Indepen- 
dent Study is not tied to the academic calendar, and 
a project may be begun or ended at any point. It is to 
be registered with the Registrar at the beginning of 
the semester during which it will be completed. Ap- 
plication forms for Independent Study are available 
at the Registrar's Office. 

Directed Study is available to matriculated 
students at College Misericordia. Permission to do a 
Directed Study must be obtained from the Academic 
Dean and it is to used only under exceptional cir- 
cumstances. Forms are available in the Registrar's 
Office. 

In contrast to an Independent Study of a special 
topic, Directed Study will be undertaken for a regular 
catalog course which is not a part of the course offer- 
ings for the given semester. 

A contract for Directed Study must be signed at 
the time of registration. The course requirements 
and expectations parallel those of the regularly 
scheduled course. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to take a 
maximum of two (2) Directed Study courses over a 
period of four years. 

A surcharge of one-half (1 12) of the amount of each 
credit is payable before the first day of class of a 
given semester. 



INDEPENDENT AND DIRECTED STUDY 

Independent Study shall be undertaken for the 
special investigation of a topic or for the benefit of 
the advanced student whose special academic re- 
quirements cannot be met by regular catalog offer-

Special Academic 
Programs 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

In order to serve those students who do not enter 
college directly out of high school, and also those 
students who must work toward a degree on a part- 
time basis, College Misericordia offers a variety of 
options for completing degree requirements. 

Evening classes are offered each semester and 
during summer session. 

Weekend classes are also available and are open 
only to students who matriculate through the Contin- 
uing Education Department. 

Multiple sessions are held during day and evening 
periods during the summer. These sessions ac- 
commodate both Continuing Education students and 
regular undergraduate students who wish to ac- 
celerate their programs or remove deficiencies. 

For adult students, child supervision facilities are 
available to care for young children. Parents using 
this service must register their children each 
semester. 

All academic and student services provided by the 
College are available to the Continuing Education 
student and the Continuing Education student is 
equally responsible for compliance with the informa- 
tion which appears in this catalog with the following 
exceptions. 

1. The reservation deposit is not required for 
incoming part-time students. 

2. Matriculating Continuing Education students 
need not fulfill the physical education require- 
ment. 

Non-credit courses and programs are also 
available through the Continuing Education program. 
A review of both the credit and non-credit programs 
can be found in material published and available 
through the Department of Continuing Education.

WEEKEND COLLEGE 

A special model for earning a degree has been 
designed for adult students. Called the Weekend 
College, this model allows adult students to attend 
college one weekend out of three and work toward 
degree programs in Business Administration, 
General Studies, Liberal Studies, Social Work and 
Associate in Applied Science for Registered 
Radiologic Technologists. In addition it is possible to 
pursue a certification program in Gerontology as 
well. The model emphasizes independent, self- in- 
itiated study as the major ingredient in the attain- 
ment of the degree. Inquiries about this program 
should be directed to the Office of Continuing 
Education. 



INSTITUTE OF GERONTOLOGY 
AND HUMAN SERVICES 

The Institute of Gerontology and Human Services 
provides quality training and consultation to those 
persons or agencies in the human services system 
who wish to increase their knowledge and skills ac- 
cording to their own needs and positi ns. 

Training programs are planned and conducted on 
the college campus. Any student may attend and 
participate with the consent of the Director. Also, 
students may enroll in these workshops to obtain 
credits with the consent of their advisors. 

In addition to these regularly scheduled 
workshops, training programs can be developed for 
special groups and delivered on site. In the past the 
Institute has conducted staff development programs 
for senior centers, nursing homes, hospitals and a 
variety of social service agencies. 

Training programs can also be planned for 
organizations wishing to co-sponsor a program in 
conjunction with other groups in nearby areas. This 
may be valuable for organizations interested in 
enriching their own in-service training programs or 



to communities where specialized instruction is not 
available. 

Each summer the Institute hosts the Elderhostel 
Program. Elderhostel is a network of nearly four hun- 
dred colleges and universities which offer low-cost, 
one week residential academic programs for older 
citizens. 



ACT 101 

The Act 101 Program is funded by the Com- 
monwealth of Pennsylvania. It is designed to assist 
qualified state residents in overcoming financial 
and/or educational difficulties. 

All program resources focus on meeting student 
needs. Services are provided in social-emotional as 
well as academic areas. These services include 
assistance in personal growth, interpersonal com- 
munication, creative problem-solving, test-taking, 
reading and study skills. 

A four week pre-college program provides incom- 
ing students with the skills necessary for academic 
success. During the academic year ongoing 
counseling and tutorial services are provided. 



AFROTC,AROTC 

In cooperation with Wilkes College and the Univer- 
sity of Scranton, College Misericordia provides op- 
portunity for students to participate in the Air Force 
and Army ROTC programs. The AFROTC program is 
based at Wilkes College; the AROTC. at the Univers- 
ity of Scranton. Details are available in the office of 
the Academic Dean. Students taking ROTC courses 
at these institutions take them without penalty to 
their full-time status and receive credit for them at 
College Misericordia as general but not core elec- 
tives. Tuition for ROTC courses is paid directly to 
Wilkes College or the University of Scranton. 



33 



JUNIOR YEAR ABROAD 

Arrangements will be made for students who wish

degree students may take up to six credits per sum- 
mer off campus. A total of 15 credits may be obtained 
in this way. Associate degree students may obtain a 
total of six credits in summer study. Students may

ART — Division of Fine Arts 

The approach to Art at College Misericordia is 
based on a firm belief in the innate creativity within 
all individuals and the need to express that creativi- 
ty. The philosophy includes understanding of both 
cognitive and affective needs, development of 
perceptual awareness and creative growth through 
study of theories of art and direct art experience. 

Any student transferring from a two-year college 
wishing to obtain a degree in Art or Art Education 
must take a minimum of 30 credits in Art at College 
Misericordia. 

All students applying for admission to the College 
Misericordia Art Program are required to present a 
portfolio to the art faculty. 

A senior exhibit is required of all art and art educa- 
tion majors. 

Studio courses require three (3) studio hours for 
each credit received. 

A grade of D in a major subject is not acceptable. 



ART EDUCATION 

Program Director: Maxine Watter-Silva 

The Art Education major will study curriculum 
design through the process of organizing and im- 
plementing a quality art program based on Penn- 
sylvania State Competency Guidelines. The Art 
Education major is required to reach the third level in 
one studio area. In addition, there are requirements 
of 12-20 hours per semester in direct contact with 
children (Pre-school — 12th grade) in various art 
situations, beginning second semester Freshman

GENERALSTUDIES 

Program Director: Sister Mary Glennon, R.S.M. 

The General Studies program at College 
Misericordia was created to provide the opportunity 
for students who have previous college credits in 
career-oriented programs to earn a Bachelor's 
Degree through additional study at College 
Misericordia. 

Professional course credits completed in prior 
study can be combined with additional liberal arts 
credits at College Misericordia and will qualify the 
candidate for the Bachelor's Degree. The degree 
can be a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts, 
both with a major in General Studies, dependent 
upon the professional courses completed. Usually 
the Bachelor's degree credits can be earned in two 
years of study at Misericordia. The degree may be 
earned by attending classes evenings, weekends, or 
through any Continuing Education program. 



Individual programs are designed through efforts 
of an Advisement Committee consisting of the pro- 
gram director, the Director of Admissions, and a 
faculty member from a discipline related to the 
course of study.

GERONTOLOGY 

Division of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work 
Program Director: Thomas O'Neill 

Gerontology is the study of aging, a normal pro- 
cess in the human lifespan. The rapid development 
and expansion of programs and services for elderly 
persons in America, as the anticipated increase in 
the number of persons living to old age, have 
escalated the demand for professionals trained to 
work in the field of aging. 

College Misericordia is an appropriate locale for 
the study of Gerontology because of its intensive in- 
volvement in the field. A Senior Citizen Center, a 
congregate feeding preparation site for nutrition 
centers for the elderly, and a retirement complex are 
all located on campus. 

The college sponsors an Institute of Gerontology 
which provides training for personnel involved in 
care of the elderly. The Institute is responsible for 
managing an adult day care center for the 
Luzerne/Wyoming Counties Office for Aging. It also 
hosts every year an Elderhostel, a nation-wide pro- 
gram of leisure and learning. 

In the field of recreation, the college cooperates 
with area agencies to provide an annual Senior 



Citizens Olympics, involving some 500 participants, 
and conducts an ongoing program of resocialization 
and recreation for elderly residents of a boarding 
facility adjacent to campus. 

The Gerontology program is designed to prepare 
graduates for positions in agencies and institutions 
that administer health and community based ser- 
vices for the aged, such as nursing homes, 
hospitals, senior citizen centers, area agencies on 
aging, housing developments, nutrition programs, 
recreation and counseling services, rehabilitation 
and social welfare agencies, and public informat on 
operations. In addition, the program serves to 
enhance the knowledge base and skills of persons 
currently engaged in the provision of such services. 

Two options for study are available within the 
Gerontology program. 

1. A Gerontology Concentration. Undergraduate 
students enrolled at the college may elect to 
pursue in the area of Gerontology a special 
course of study called a concentration. 

2. A Gerontology Certificate. Individuals who are 
not pursuing a degree at the college may 
choose the special course of study in Geron- 
tology by itself or in conjunction with other con- 
tinuing education courses. 

The primary distinction between a concentration 
and certificate is essentially student status. Concen- 
tration students have a primary identification with 
their undergraduate major and degree program. Cer- 
tificate students have a primary identification with 
Gerontology and continuing education. 



OTHER DIFFERENCES 

Admission Requirements. Concentration 
students must have completed their freshman year 
of college, have a minimum grade point average of 
2.0 and have successfully completed the course In- 
troduction to Social Gerontology. They must be for- 
mally admitted to the concentration by filing an ad- 



71 



mission form declaring an intention to pursue the 
concentration before taking any additional Geron- 
tology courses. 

Certificate students must successfully complete 
Introduction to Social Gerontology, or an equivalent 
course, with the permission of the Gerontology Pro- 
gram Director. They must then be formally admitted 
to the Certificate Program by filing an admission 
form declaring the intention of taking course credits 
toward a certificate. 

The Admission Form is both an administrative and 
student advising device. It helps program advisors to 
plan courses and it also allows for individual advising 
with students concerning their progress toward 
completion of the program. The Gerontology Pro- 
gram Director is the advisor for all students in the 
program. 

Who pursues a Concentration? Any 
undergraduate major at the college may pursue the 
concentration. Often students in social work, nurs- 
ing or music therapy combine it with their under- 
graduate professional education. Sociology, 
psychology and other behavioral science or liberal 
arts majors may pursue it because of an interest in 
developing a specialty in Gerontology as an 
academic discipline. 

Who pursues a Certificate? Persons not enrolled 
as undergraduates may decide to study for a Cer- 
tificate in Gerontology. Usually these students are 
employed in settings that deal with the aged, or hope 
to be so employed. Other participants may be older 
persons interested for self-enrichment purposes. 
Students often include registered nurses, practical 
nurses, therapeutic aides and similar professionals 
employed in serving older persons. All Certificate 
students must be prepared to do college level 
course work. 

REQUIREMENTS 

Concentration students must complete 21 college 
credits by successfully taking 5 required courses 
and 2 elective courses in Gerontology. 



Certificate students must also complete 21 col- 
lege credits by successfully taking 5 required 
courses and 2 elective courses in Gerontology. 
Some Certificate students may be waived out of 
Gerontology 241 and will then be required to take 3 
elective courses. 

Certificate students have some flexibility in the 
required courses that Concentration students do not 
have. In the advising process, Certificate students 
will be encouraged to put their emphasis on practice 
or working with the aged course electives. 

All courses taken must be completed with at least 
a C grade. All courses with a D or F must be 
repeated.

Concentration students may transfer 3 col- 
lege/university credits to the program from another 
academic institution; Certificate students may 
transfer 6 college/university credits. The accep- 
tance of transfer credits is contingent on the ap- 
proval of both the Gerontology Program and 
Registrar's Office at College Misericordia. 

Unless officially waived, all students in the pro- 
gram must complete Gerontology 241 before they 
can begin to acquire credits toward a concentration 
or certificate.

GERON. 241 INTRODUCTION TO SOCIAL GERONTOLOGY (3) 

An introduction to the study of aging as a normal process 
within the contemporary cultural context. Among the issues 
surveyed will be the biological, psychological and sociological 
aspects of aging and their implications. This course is a pre- 
requisite for all other courses in the Gerontology program. It 
may also be taken to fulfill liberal arts core requirements. 

GERON 242 AGING, LEISURE AND RECREATION (3)

as a value and as a "social role". The course explores theory 
and practice of leisure activities as it affects the elderly in 
community and institutions. 

GERON 255 SOCIOLOGY OF AGING (3) 

This course focuses on the origins and scope of interests in 
aging as a social phenomenon, presuppositions that underlie 
the study of age-related changes, and the life span context in 
which aging takes place. Topics covered include: the relation- 
ship between age and social structure; the roles and status of 
the elderly; intergenerational relationships; aging and social 
institutions (i.e., family, religious, political, etc.) and death 
and dying in a social context. Same as Soc 255. 

GERON. 276 PSYCHOLOGY OF AGING (3) 

This course surveys the psychological impact of age related 
changes that occur between early and late maturity. Specific 
areas of study include: changes in perceptual ability, intellec- 
tual ability and learning capacities in late life, major personali- 
ty changes and emotional dimensions of late life, adjustments 
to retirement and role changes, as well as environmental 
issues which contribute to psychological health. Same as Psy. 
276. 

GERON. 292 OLDER WOMEN (3) 

The experience of aging as a woman in an agist and sexist 
society is the focus of this course. Women experience the 
biological, psychological, and social changes of later life 
disadvantaged by not only the injustices of an agist society, 
but as persons whose sex and often race make aging for them 
a special experience distinct from that of men. This course 
focuses on the image of the older woman, her health and men- 
tal health, life patterns and economic security. In the course 
students are encouraged to reflect on their own experience 
with older women and their perception of what becoming an 
older woman entails. Same as WS 360. 

GERON. 304 NUTRITION AND AGING (3) 

A survey course on nutrition and aging. Special focus will be 
placed on the application of the principles of nutrition to 
special needs of the elderly. This course is designed to offer a 
better understanding of the basic nutritional needs of the 
elderly to those who have no formal training in nutrition 
Students with no previous course work in nutrition may be re- 
quired to do additional outside assignments. 



GERON 306 HEALTH AND PHYSIOLOGY OF AGING (3) 

The relationship of the concept of health in the later stages of 
life and the corresponding physiological changes are discuss- 
ed. Focus in on health preservation by identifying prevalent 
health related problems in the aging individual, to determine 
those who have such problems and those who are at greatest 
risk of developing them. Specification, cardiac, neurological, 
elimination, and activity to compensate for age-related 
changes interfering with these functions. Common conditions 
of each body system and their unique features in the aged are 
discussed in detail. Rehabilitation concepts are considered as 
central to health maintenance and level of wellness in the ag- 
ing person. Students who have not had previous course work 
in physiology/health may be required to do additional outside 
study. 

GERON 358 COUNSELING THE OLDER ADULT (3) 

A gerontology course which emphasizes the effective use of 
individual and group counseling techniques to aid older per- 
sons who are experiencing difficulties in emotional or social 
adjustment in late life. Students with no prior course work in 
this area may be required to do additional outside study. 
Same as SWK 358. 

GERON. 375 AGING POLICIES AND PROGRAMS (3) 

This course examines the historical development of social 
policy responses that address aging as well as current 
policies and programs. It utilizes a policy analysis framework 
to enable students to understand the strength, weaknesses, 
and implementation problems of income maintenance, health 
care, social services, employment and volunteer policies 
which affect older persons in the United States Same as SWK 
375.

The aim of this course is to examine the needs and poten- 
tialities of that segment of the nations elderly population 
viewed as the most "vulnerable and frail". The course also 
examines the service philosophy and service delivery 
systems available to the protective service client. 

GERON 415 LITERATURE AND AGING (3) 

This course focuses on attitudes toward aging and the posi- 
tion of the aged in society as reflected in novels, plays, poems 
and short stories. An effort is made to compare the image of 
aging found in this material with the current information 
available about aging as a normal process. The required 
readings deal with such related themes as death, mourning, 
loneliness and sexuality. Same as Eng. 415 



73 



GERON. 470 PRACTICUM IN GERONTOLOGY (3) 

Experience in working in a selected agency which provides 
services to the aged. The student is supervised by a 
designated professional in the agency and educationally 
directed by a faculty member. The emphasis is on practice 
rather than observation.

PRE-LAW PROGRAM 

Based upon the recommendations of the Associa- 
tion of American Law Schools, there is no specific 
undergraduate curriculum required for admission to 
law school. Most law schools, however, recommend 
that prospective students have a broad liberal arts 
background as a preparation for the study of law. 

At ollege Misericordia, that background may be 
obtained through the pursuit of a Bachelor of Arts 
degree. Undergraduate courses in this program at 
Misericordia, with a Pre-Law Academic Concentra- 
tion, represent a sound preparation for those 
stu ents who desire to go on to law school following 
graduation. 

The Division of Humanities offers a Pre-Law 
Academic Concentration developed to enable the 
pre-law student to supplement the core curriculum 
with courses helpful in preparing for the Law School 
Admission Test and for admission to law school. See 
History. 

In addition to the Pre-Law Academic Concentration 
in preparing for law school, students are advised to 
select undergraduate courses that develop ability in 
expression and comprehension of English, afford 
basic information about human institutions and 
values, and which cultivate the ability to think 
creatively and critically with thoroughness and in- 
dependence. 

Admission to law school is based upon the follow- 
ing factors: (1 ) possession of a baccalaureate degree 
from an accredited college or university; (2) satisfac- 
tory record of academic achievement in under- 
graduate program of study; (3) aptitude for the study 
of law as determined by satisfactory scores on the 
Law School Admission Test (LSAT); (4) applicant's 
good moral character. 

All interested students must register with the Pre- 
Law Advisor for advice on course selection and in- 
formation concerning application to law school. 

Additional information may be obtained by con- 
sulting the annual Pre-Law Handbook prepared by 
the Association of American Law Schools and the 



Law School Admission Council. The Handbook can 
be obtained from the college bookstore or ordered 
from LSAC, Educational Testing Service, Box 944, 
Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 



LIBERAL STUDIES — Division of Humanities 
Program Director: Lee J. Williams 

LIBERAL STUDIES 

The Bachelor of Liberal Studies Program at Col- 
lege Misericordia is a four year program designed 
for those students who want to achieve a Bachelor of 
Science or Bachelor of Arts degree but who want to 
plan their studies to meet personal goals. 

In effect, the student in this program can create his 
or her own "major," selecting courses in a general 
area of interest from the areas of fine arts, behavioral 
science, natural science, or humanities, or by pursu- 
ing a specific theme of study that would include 
courses in all those areas. 

This versatile program is "structured" only in the 
sense that the student must achieve a certain 
number of credits within a given liberal arts area. The 
specific courses that result in those credits are 
determined, for the most part, by the interests and 
careerdesigns of the individual. 

The type of degree earned — Bachelor of Science 
or Bachelor of Arts — would be dependent upon the 
selected area of study and how the study was pur- 
sued. In both instances, the student must complete 
126 credits. 

This program is geared to highly independent and 
self-motivated students who are capable of in- 
dividual scholarship. The modes of study in the 
Liberal Studies Program may be non-traditional, in- 
cluding independent study and research and 
seminars, particularly in the Junior and Senior years. 



78 



General Area Program 

In this program, students concentrate in one 
general, liberal arts area such as fine arts, 
humanities, natural science, or behavioral science. 

Students work toward 54 credits in core courses, 
12 credits of electives from the core curriculum, 30 
credits in a selected liberal arts area, and 30 credits 
(15 each) in two other liberal arts areas. 



Thematic Major Program 

Again, students must take 54 credits within the 
designated Core curriculum and 12 credits of elec- 
tives from the Core curriculum. In this program, 
however, the student achieves the 30 credits 
necessary for the major in courses directly related to 
the theme of study selected. 

The credits may be taken from any of the general 
liberal arts areas of study, but must apply to the 
theme (major) being studied. The determination of 
the relationship of courses selected to the stated 
theme will be made by the student in consultation 
with an advisory committee. 

An additional 30 credits must be achieved as 15 
credits each in two related themes or as 15 each in 
two general liberal arts areas. 



Counseling 

Students enrolled in the Liberal Studies Program 
will meet with an advisory committee that will help 
them determine what courses are appropriate for 
their selected mode of study. The committee, for ex- 
ample, will advise a student on whether or not a 
specific course or number of courses are ap- 
propriate to the theme of study selected. 

Students will continue to receive counseling from 
an advisory committee throughout their four years of 
study. 



MATHEMATICS 

Division of Natural Science and Mathematics 

Program Director: 

Sister Miriam Teresa O'Donnell, R.S.M. 

Mathematics has been called "the queen of 
sciences." In recent years, the computer revolution 
coupled with the widespread use of statistics and 
quantitative methods has caused mathematics to 
pervade not only the physical sciences, but also the 
life and social sciences. In addition, mathematical 
techniques are widely used in research, and in in- 
dustry, manufacturing, commerce, and government. 
Recognizing this widespread use of mathematics. 
College Misericordia's program is designed to give 
students a broad exposure to both classical and con- 
temporary mathematics. 

The Mathematics program is designed to prepare 
the student for a career in industry or in secondary 
school teaching or for future study in graduate or 
professional school. A student may elect to earn 
either a B.A. or a B.S. degree. The mathematics 
courses required for either degree are the same. 
Students choosing a B.A. must complete Physics 
221-222; those choosing a B.S. must complete 
Physics 221-222 and either Chemistry 133-134 or 
Biology 101-102. In addition, all students must com- 
plete COMSC 121. 

Requirements for the major are a minimum of 33 
semester hours in mathematics. Of these, the 
following are required: Math. 151-152, 225, 242, 244, 
341, 354, 360. 363. Those students who plan to teach 
are required to take Math. 351 and Math. 390. while 
those who do not plan to teach must take Math. 342. 

The department reserves the right to require a stu- 
dent who receives a "D" grade in a required major 
subject to repeat the course without accruing addi- 
tional credits. 

For students outside of the Mathematics depart- 
ment, the core curriculum requirement may be fulfill- 
ed by any mathematics course (exept Math. 390). 
provided that prerequisites have been fulfilled, or 
necessary consent has been obtained.

NURSING — Division of Nursing 
Program Director: Sheila M. Pringle 



Philosophy 

The Nursing Division of College Misericord ia 
believes that every human being is a unique creation 
of God, endowed with individual potentials and 
limitations, working out ones destiny independently 
as a person while being dependent on and in- 
terdependent with members of a family unit within a 
social structure. 

The nursing faculty is concerned with the worth 
and dignity of the total person. We strive for a 
holistic view of Man, considering nature and physical 
structure, mind, spirit, and the environment, both 
natural and social, within which one lives. All 



94 



aspects of life, from conception to death, are viewed 
as interrelated. Man is perceived within the context 
of a family unit, that unit which maintains the stability 
of a society while it provides the flexibility necessary 
for the individual growth of all its members. 

Health and illness are intricately related in the 
dynamics of wellness. We believe that the level of 
wellness attained by an individual is directly related 
to and influenced by the family's and the commun- 
ity's level of wellness. The nursing faculty believes 
that Man has a right to that level of wellness which 
enables maximization of potential as a person, a 
family member, and a community member. 

The practice of professional nursing is an essen- 
tial service designed to assist Man in preventing il- 
lness, promoting, maintaining and restoring 
wellness, and adapting to a change in level of 
wellness within ones particular culture and social 
environment. The professional nurse accepts the 
responsibility for growth in the knowledge and skills 
necessary to attain that goal. 

Based on these beliefs, the Division of Nursing 
operates within the structure of the total College 
assisting students in forming a philosophy of life 
which penetrates the realities of human existence 
and integrates experience with commitment and 
Christian truths. 

The nursing faculty believes that preparation of 
the professional nurse includes development of the 
student's personal, social, and professional poten- 
tials as a basis for continual growth. The nursing stu- 
dent is prepared to become a generalist, a beginning 
practitioner of professional nursing. Together with 
other professional and allied health personnel, the 
student is enabled to provide health care services to 
persons, families, and community groups at all 
levels of wellness, in a variety of settings. 

The nursing faculty believes that nursing is an in- 
herent and vital service within the health care 
system, and that nursing exerts an influence on, and 
is influenced by, the newly developing patterns of 
providing services, the roles of other members of 
the health team, scientific and technological ad- 
vances, nursing research and the social and 



economic pressures which contribute to the com- 
plexity of health care services. The beginning 
generalist professional nurse is educated to provide 
vital, effective nursing services in the total health 
care system. Utilizing the nursing process which 
draws heavily upon intellectual, interpersonal an 
technical skills, the student learns to assess, plan 
for, implement, and evaluate health and nursing care 
for individuals and families. The health assessment 
performed within the context of the nursing process 
utilizes many tools, methods and techniques to 
gather complete data about the physical, emotional, 
mental, social, spiritual, educational, and cultural 
status of the person, the family, and the community. 

Motivated by a dynamic concept of high-level 
wellness, the beginning generalist professional 
nurse is able to assume a leadership role through 
promoting concepts of health maintenance and il- 
lness prevention. The student is expected to 
assume responsibility for the assurance of a holistic, 
personalized, humanistic, Christian approach to 
meet the health needs of the individual, the family, 
and the community. 

The nursing curriculum builds on the liberal and 
fine arts program of the college and provides a 
sound educational base for graduate study. 



Regulations: 

In addition to the regulations of the College as a 
whole, the following additional regulations apply to 
students in the Department of Nursing: 
1 . Policy for Outside Student Employment. 

The policy of the Department of Nursing is that 
the students carrying 12 credit hours will not 
commit themselves to any more than twenty- 
four hours weekly in outside positions. Full-

part-time outside position should register this 
plan with their faculty nursing advisor. 
When students are employed in a health agen- 
cy, they may not perform functions normally 



95 



assigned to a professional or practical nurse. 
Students cannot be assigned as a charge nurse 
of a unit. 

2. Academic Counseling and Advising. 

The faculty assist students in planning their 
academic schedules each semester and its 
members are available for academic counseling 
with the individual student. 

3 Absences 

Students are expected to attend classes and 
local resources, with absences permitted only 
in unusual circumstances. Making up time lost 
during clinical nursing experiences (whether 
through illness or through other causes) will be 
left to the discrection of the faculty. 

4. Transportation to Cooperating Agencies. 
Students are responsible for their own 
transportation to and from hospitals and other 
clinical resources. For Community Health Nurs- 
ing each student is required to have the use of 
an automobile. Area health agencies cooperat- 
ing with the nursing program are: Community 
Medical Center, Scranton; Friendship House,

dent may advance to the next level nursing

PHILOSOPHY 

Division of Religious Studies and Philosophy 

Program Director: Edward Latarewicz 

In consonance with the aim of liberal education, 
the Philosophy program is regarded both as an 
academic discipline with an important history and as 
an instrument for intellectual liberation and refine- 
ment. It seeks to implement these convictions in the 
following ways: (1) by presenting and exploring 
philsophical problems from a variety of standpoints; 
(2) by introducing the history of problems as much as 
is feasible in problem-oriented courses; (3) by help- 
ing the student to recognize and to employ sound 
canons of evidence and critical judgment; and (4) by 
endeavoring to promote in the student the desire to 
discover the truth, to refine convictions, and to relate 
researches in philosophy to other areas of learning 
and to oneself. 

Requirements for a concentration in philosophy: 
any 18 hours. The 100-level course serves as an in- 
troduction to philosophy and is normally the prere- 
quisite for the more advanced courses. 



Phil. 110 IMAGES OF MAN

PHYSICS 

Division of Natural Science and Mathematics 

Program Director: 

Sister Miriam Teresa O'Donnell, R.S.M. 

Physics is perhaps the most basic of the sciences. 
Modern treatments of biology and chemistry are be- 
ing taught from a point of view requiring a foundation 
in physics. Mathematics majors interested in in- 
dustrial employment may also find a physics 
background useful. The physics department 
therefore provides courses necessary for the educa- 
tion of science majors and various pre-professional 
major as well as for the enrichment of humanities 
majors. 

The Core Curriculum requirement may be fulfulled 
by any physics courses (except Physics 101 or 102) 
whose prerequisite requirements have been fulfilled 
by the student.

A concentration in psychology is also offered and 
is found to be a meaningful adjunct to just about any 
major, but especially education, nursing, social 
work, business administration, art therapy and 
music therapy. Requirements for the concentration 
are as follows: 18 credits in psychology which must 
include 123, 232, 330, and 430. Math. 251 (Basic

The psychology major, offered within the Division 
of Behavioral Science and Social Work, is designed 
to provide the student with an integrated repertoire 
of theoretical knowledge and practical experience in 
the field of human behavior. The major is designed 
not only to provide sound background for further 
study in graduate school, but also to acquaint the 
student with concepts useful for daily living and pro- 
vide skills useful in a variety of employment fields. 
Example of such fields include counseling and per- 
sonnel management, teaching, social science, and 
mental health para-professional careers. 

Requirements for the major are as follows: 36 
credits in psychology, including the following re- 
quired courses: 123, 232, 275, 330, 350, 430 and 452.

quired courses, Math. 251 (Basic Statistics) must be 
taken before Psy. 232 and/or 280. Psychology majors 
are encouraged to take Math. 251 in their second 
semester freshman year to insure their ability to take 
the upper level psychology courses when they are 
offered.

COLLEGE MISERICORIDA 
ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

The College Misericordia Alumni Association, 
founded in 1927, enjoys a proud tradition of service. 
It provides the framework through which College 
Misericordia graduates may continue to aid the Col- 
lege in furthering academic and cultural programs, 
thereby remaining an active influence in the college 
community long after graduation. 

Activities of the Alumni Association fall into two 
categories: those undertaken by the National 
Association and those undertaken by chapters in 
various cities throughout the Northeast. All 
graduates of College Misericordia are members of 
the National Alumni Association, which furthers 
Alumni Annual Giving, a program through which 
graduates contribute to the financial support of Col- 
lege Misericordia. The Association also sponsors a 
Homecoming celebration on campus each year. 

Annually, the Association awards a scholarship for 
graduate study to a Sister of Mercy who is an alumna 
and a commencement prize to the student who has 
attained the highest scholastic average for four 
years. 

The chapter brings the college community close to 
the alumni wherever they reside and provides an op- 
portunity for stimulating relationships with other 
Misericordia graduates. Chapter members recruit 
promising students and promote good public rela- 
tions in their communities. A spirit of alumni solidar- 
ity is generated by the chapter, thereby reinforcing 
Misericordia's strength and influence. 

Upon graduation, all students become members of 
the Alumni Association, and an associate member- 
ship is available to any former student who has at- 
tended Misericordia for one year. 

One business meeting is held annually on campus 
during Homecoming. Executive Board meetings are 
scheduled on a quarterly basis. The Executive Board 
consists of the National Officers, who are elected bi- 
annually, Chairpersons of Standing Committees ap- 
pointed by the Alumni President, and Chapter 
Presidents. 



Alumni activities are coordinated through the of- 
fice of the Director of Alumni Affairs, located in the 
Administration Building. In the Alumni Office, files of 
addresses and other pertinent information regarding 
alumni and associate members are kept current and 
accurate. Members of the faculty and student body 
are welcome to vist the office and request this in- 
formation at any time.
