10 Years

FROM THE PRESIDENTS DESK During 1983 the Lutheran Church was privileged to mark and observe the SOOth birthday of Dr. Martin Luther. Appropriately many events such as lectures, concerts, hymn fests, dramatic presentations and festival services were designed to emphasize our Lutheran religious and cultural heritage. There are many reasons why Martin Luther should be remembered five hundred years after his birth. Certainly one could point to his importance as one of history's most outstanding church reformers. as a brilliant professor of theology, as one of the most productive authors of all time, or as a significant figure in the field of education. But above all, we remember Luther as a child of God who treasured the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and left no stone unturned to share this message with young and old alike. During the 1984-85 academic year this college which bears the reformer's name will celebrate its centennial. Dr. Martin Luther College opened its doors as an educational institution of the church on November 10,1884, the day'of Luther's birthday. For 100 years this institution has had the privilege to educate young men and women for the teaching ministry of the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod. Though the appearance of the campus and the curriculum of the college have undergone some changes from time to time, one thing has not changed. Under God and by His grace, the college continues to build its curriculum and its program of student life around the proclamation of Christ in the Scriptures. Redeemed by His precious blood and called into His service, we count it a privilege to share God's truths with others and impress them on each new generation enrolling in this college. This catalog will provide you with a brief history of the college, its purpose and objectives, acquaint you with costs involved when enrolling in the college, give you a glimpse of student life and requirements, and describe the curriculum for the 1984-85 academic year. It is our hope and prayer that we may be able to serve you in the coming year. Through the teaching and learning that is done in and out of the classroom, may God be praised and His will be done in the hearts and lives of those preparing for service in His church. Lloyd O. Huebner President

St. John's Ev, Lutheran Church

St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church 8

History Dr. Martin Luther College, now owned and operated by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, was founded by the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Minnesota and other States. During its 1883convention the Minnesota Synod resolved to establish an educational institution for the purpose of supplying ministers of the Gospel to its congregations and mission fields. Besides the ministerial course, other courses were to be included in the curriculum. Because of the zeal of the Rev. C. J. Albrecht, pastor of St. Paul's congregation in New Ulm and president of the Minnesota Synod, the new college was located in New Ulm and was ready for dedication and occupancy in the fall of 1884. The second phase of the history of the college began eight years later. In 1892 the Minnesota Synod entered into a close federation with the like-minded Wisconsin and Michigan Synods for a more effective stewardship of resources. At that time Dr. Martin Luther College became the teacher education college for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption for over ninety years. After the Nebraska District Synod had become the fourth member of the joint synod in 1904,the federation formally organized in 1917.This organization, then known as the Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of Wisconsin and other States, became the WISconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod in 1959. At the time of the original merger in 1892,a three-year preparatory curriculum and a two-year college course were adopted, both of which were open to male students only. The need for women teachers led the school to become co-educational in 1896. The preparatory department was expanded to a four-year high school in 1919,while the two-year college curriculum was retained with the hope of expansion to a fouryear college as soon as possible. The first of two steps in expansion was realized with the graduation of the first three-year class in 1931.The completion of the expansion was sidetracked by the effects of the great depression and by World War II.As a result the addition of the fourth year was not accomplished until 1950. The first four-year class was graduated in 1954. As a result of a synodical resolution in 1962 the separation of the high school from the college, each under its own administration, was effected. Both schools continued to use the same facilities until the 1979-80 school year. In that year the high school, known as Martin Luther Academy, was moved to Prairie du Chien, WISCOnsin,and re-named Martin Luther Preparatory School.

Philosophy and Purpose The existence and function of Dr. Martin Luther College rest on unalterable convictions regarding man, as drawn from the God-given Holy Scriptures. We believe man to be the crown of God's creation. As such, he was made to know God and to share His company. He was endowed with gifts that permitted him to become


acquainted with, enjoy the use of, and find cause for wonder and gratitude in everything that God fashioned for human service and delight. We also hold to the reality of sin, a persistent hereditary wickedness in man which compels him to oppose his gracious Creator. In sin we find the underlying cause for all evil. Sin ruptured the Creator's design for man, frustrated the creation's service to man, and fixed on man a guilt and helplessness from which God alone could set him free. This He did through His Son, the God-Man Jesus Christ, who entered human history and restored the Creator's eternal design for man. In the historical verities of the person and work of Jesus Christ as unfolded in the Scriptures, we find the basis for our Christian assurance that man, the sinner, was redeemed and reconciled to God to share His company in this life and in the life to come. As believers in Christ we count ourselves people of high privilege imbued with a gratitude to our Savior-God that shapes our lives in every direction and that enables us to carry out our various God-given responsibilities: to ourselves - the duty to cultivate our potentialities of body and soul as divine gifts to be used to the glory of God; to our fellowman as our equal before God - the obligation to proclaim the freedom-bringing truth in Christ and to assist him in whatever other manner we have opportunity; to the world apart from man - the respect that recognizes all created things as gifts of God to be investigated, used, or enjoyed in a manner that harmonizes with divine design. These Christ-centered convictions guide us in every sphere of human thought and achievement. Thus, we view the study of man and his culture, together with the pursuit of other knowledge, as not only beneficial but obligatory. We humans have been appointed lords of all things; although weakened by sin, we are still enjoined to search out whatever is useful and wholesome in this life so that in our whole being we may continually draw nearer to the potential for which God made us. We engage in this pursuit not merely for its own sake or to contribute to the kind of wisdom by which man hopes to overcome the deep problems of human existence on earth. Our pursuit of knowledge is aimed primarily at growing in the wisdom which God teaches in His Word: first, that through the study of man and his culture we may see in broad context man's persistent weaknesses and failings, and his continuing need for the Savior; second, that despite the crippling effects of sin we may appreciate the wide range of man's God-given talents for doing, thinking, and speaking what is beautiful, praiseworthy, profound, and mentally and emotionally satisfying; third, that we may come away from this experience with a larger understanding


of God's ways among men and a heightened awe for the majesty, goodness, and wisdom of God. These convictions regarding God and man are cherished by the teachers and students of Dr. Martin Luther College as well as by the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod who own and maintain the college. These convictions are the reasons for the existence of the Synod and all of its schools. Because these convictions derive from divinely revealed truth, we count it our God-given responsibility to share them with every man and to impress them on each new generation of the church. Indeed, because of these convictions, we equate education with Christian education, which puts all learning and wisdom into the perspective of Christ and His Word. Since this requires the service of Christ-imbued educators, all who are called to teach in the schools of our Synod are expected to share our Christcentered convictions knowledgeably and to demonstrate them by the testimony of their lives. At the same time, our Christian duty to church and society obligates us to staff the schools of the Synod with educators sufficiently competent inwhatever other learning is necessary for meaningful and responsible life in today's world. Therefore DR. MARTIN LUTHER COLLEGE EXISTS TO PREPARE QUALIFIED EDUCATORSFOR THE TEACHINGMINISTRYIN THE CHRISTIANDAY SCHOOLSOF THE WISCONSINEVANGELICALLUTHERANSYNOD. To carry out this assignment Dr. Martin Luther College has built its curriculum and its program of student life around the proclamation of Christ in the Scriptures. In the curriculum all subjects find their unity in this proclamation, especially through a select group of required religion courses which deal with the Scriptures as the record of God's acts among men and the revelation of God's truths for all men and for all time. These divine acts and truths are viewed and pursued in the wider setting of man's history and cultural milieu through the ages because we hold that the proper understanding of man requires us to be conversant with the broad theater of human affairs, particularly in those places where the proclamation of Christ has been historically most visible. Dr. Martin Luther College therefore offers one basic curriculum of general education courses in religion, music, science, mathematics, and the humanities; of area of concentration courses selected from one of the following: English, mathematics, music, science, and social studies; of professional education courses in the methodology, and the art of teaching.


the practical

Through this program, Dr. Martin Luther College desires 1. to strengthen in the student a consecrated spirit of love for God and His Word;


2. to educate the whole person for faithful, capable, intelligent citizenship in today's world; 3. to permit the student some beginning opportunity at academic specialization both for personal experience and enjoyment and for wider service as a teacher; 4. to equip the student with the pedagogical skills and the practical training that will permit him competently to communicate Christian truth, knowledge, an attitude of wonder for the created universe, and love for God and fellowman; 5. to assist the student in developing the understandings, attitudes, and skills that are necessary for meeting the worship needs of the Synod's congregations, always keeping professional training in church music an integral part of teacher education. Primary responsibility for the instructional program rests with the members of the faculty who hold their office as accountable to God through a divine call administered under the superintendence of the church. In discharging this trust, the faculty recognizes a continuing responsibility for improvement through private study, through further study at other places of learning, through attendance at meetings of scholarly societies, and through participation in various in-service programs on the campus. These are encouraged not only for personal satisfaction but also for effective classroom instruction. By demonstrating a respect for continued scholarship and by the example of personal dedication, the faculty hopes to encourage among the students the love for learning, the spirit of inquiry, and the cultivation of wider intellectual horizons that characterize a wholesome college atmosphere. In matters regarding general student life, Dr. Martin Luther College carries out its work on the basis of truths enunciated in the Word of God. Thus, the college is obligated to show concern for every student's well-being under Christ, and every student has the responsibility to give respect and obedience to the school and its policies. Christian citizenship at Dr. Martin Luther College is nurtured also through regular formal worship that draws its message directly from the God-given Scriptures. Worship services are held every academic day to edify the whole college familyand to rehearse divine truths in which school learning and life are unified. For the further training of the whole person under Christ, Dr. Martin Luther College encourages student participation in programs ot physical and cultural activity, and in student government. These programs, intended primarily for the benefit of students, also serve, edify, and provide recreation for the entire campus family, the local community, and the church-at-Iarge.ln their role of subservience to the school's chief task, non-academic activities are also organized and administered in conformity with the spirit of Christ. In its total educational program Dr. Martin Luther College views its faculty as more than an instrument to aid students in acquiring knowledge. The faculty member is


expected to serve as student adviser in academic matters and as Christian counselor in other capacities where assistance is desirable or mandatory. Dr. Martin Luther College further sees the general well-being of school and student body strengthened and preserved by strong and spontaneous faculty interest in all aspects of student life _ an interest which the faculty shows by being sociable with students, by attending or participating in student activities, and by setting students an example of a Godpleasing life in Christ. Thus, in every aspect of school life, Dr. Martin Luther College seeks to fulfill its assignment: to furnish the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod with teacher candidates thoroughly qualified for discharging the high responsibilities of Christian education in a manner that is God-pleasing and worthy of the world's respect. Such preoccupation with teacher education awakens a- variety of auxiliary enterprises whereby the school and its faculty freely serve both their constituency and the general public. As the only teacher education institution of the church it serves, Dr. Martin Luther College recognizes an obligation to furnish educational leadership to that church in whatever manner the faculty's resources of scholarship and professional expertise can be utilized. Dr. Martin Luther College also stands ready to give of its time and its facilities to church and society wherever and whenever this may be done without sacrificing its assignment or compromising its Christian principles.

Function Consistent with its philosophy and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College in its regular sessions offers a four year curriculum in elementary teacher education, culminating in a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education and enabling graduates with full synodical certification to teach in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Its summer sessions offer undergraduate courses, enrichment courses and workshops. Its synodical certification program offers those who have only the required academic background an opportunity to pursue the religion and related courses required to achieve the status of a certified teacher in the Synod. Courses offered in the summer sessions accommodate themselves also to the certification program. It is primarily in the interest of synodical certification, as well, that a fourth program, that of correspondence study, has been inaugurated.

Administrative Organization Dr. Martin Luther College is owned, operated, and maintained by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. This church body has its headquarters at 2929 N.Mayfair Road, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53222. The administration of the college is vested in a board of control elected by the Synod in convention. This board consists of three pastors, two male teachers, and two laymen. Briefly stated, the Board of Control is responsible for the calling of faculty personnel; for approval of major curriculum revisions; for property acquisitions, building


Student receives degree construction, and major maintenance; and for the general policies under which the college is to operate. The Board of Control discharges most of its functions in consultation with and through the president of the college who represents the faculty and is directly responsible to the board and to the Synod.

Academic Organization Faculty :- The faculty is primarily concerned with the academic life of the institution and with such policies as are an integral part of campus life in keeping with the stated philosophy and purpose of the college. Normally the faculty discharges its responsibilities in these areas through regularly scheduled meetings and assignments to its standing committees. Academic Council - The work of the various academic divisions within the college is coordinated through the academic counciL It is composed of the division heads, the registrar, and the vice president for academic affairs who is the chairman. This council is responsible to the faculty and the president.

Financial Aids Dr. Martin Luther College believes that the primary responsibility for financing a college education lies with the student and his family.

In addition a financial aid program and special office is maintained to assist the student.

Incompletes - The temporary grade I (Incomplete) is issued when a student doing otherwise acceptable work is unable to complete the course assignments for reasons deemed cogent by the instructor. A first-semester Incomplete must be converted into


a permanent grade by the end of the second semester, and a second semester Incomplete by the end of summer school, or the permanent grade is recorded as an F.

Academic Standing - Academic standings are computed each semester on the basis of grade points earned to date. Both the semester grade point average and the cumulative grade point average will be computed at the end of each semester and at the close of the summer session. To be a student in good academic standing, the student must earn the minimum semester as well as the minimum cumulative grade point average as indicated in the table below.

Grade Point Average - A grade-point system is used as a convenient method of determining whether a student has' done work of C average, 2.000.

Policies Regarding Academic Standing - A student on probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester of residence. Normally, ifhe fails to gain this status, he will be required to withdraw. Application for readmittance will be considered only after a lapse of two semesters. A student on probation shall discuss with his adviser the desirability of reducing his course load to aid him in acquiring good standing. If the course load is reduced, consultation between the student and his adviser and the advice of the registrar will determine the course( s) to be dropped. In the interest of the student as well as in the interest of maintaining proper academic standards, a student on probation shall also discuss with his adviser the extent of his extra-class activities and outside employment. For participation in such activities and employment, both of which can make increased demands on the student's time, the student shall secure the approval of a review committee consisting of the student's adviser, the dean of students, and the vice president for academic affairs. Credits and grade points earned in residence during a summer session are added to those earned during the last semester of the student's attendance. They may apply toward the removal of an academic probation status. Only those undergraduates who have the status of student in good standing will be approved for emergency or substitute teaching.


Repetition of Courses - A student must earn credit in a course which has been failed and is required for graduation either by repeating the course or by successfully completing an approved substitute. A course may also be repeated ifa student desires to better his grade point average. The grade earned in repetition will be figured in the student's average, but the original grade will remain on the record. Courses taken to remove a failure or repeated to better the grade point average can be taken only in residence or, in extraordinary circumstances, through the Dr. Martin Luther College correspondence program.

Credit Hour Load - To be classified as full-time, a student must be enrolled in at least twelve hours for credit. The maximum academic load per semester is as follows: Freshmen: 16V2 hours; sophomores: 19%hours; juniors: 19hours; seniors: 18 hours. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course ifhe has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 or better and if other conditions make this advisable. Such permission is obtained by the student from his adviser and the registrar. A student may register to audit a course ifin good standing and with the consent of his adviser, the instructor of the class he wishes to audit, and the registrar. An audit may be changed to a course being taken for credit if the student has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 and makes such change for credit in the time allowed. Procedures for withdrawing from a course taken for audit are identical to those followed when withdrawing from a course taken for credit.

Change In Course Registration - A student may make a change in course registration through the first two weeks of the semester with the approval of his adviser and the registrar.

Advanced Placement Examination - High school students who receive a grade of three, (our, or five in the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Test may receive college credit. For particular details, the high school student should write to the registrar.

Withdrawal From Courses - A student may withdraw from a course with the approval of his adviser, the instructor of the course, and the registrar. Withdrawal from a keyboard course requires also the approval of the music division chairman. Such withdrawals may be made without academic penalty during the first three weeks of a semester. After the first three weeks and up to mid-semester, withdrawal may be permitted under special circumstances. For such courses the student's record will show either WP (withdrawal passing) or WF (withdrawal failing). Neither the WP nor the WF will be counted in computing the grade point average. An unauthorized withdrawal from a course will be recorded as an F. Such an F will be counted in the grade point average.

Withdrawal From College - The student who finds it necessary to withdraw from the college must report first to his adviser for instructions on procedures.


When a stuaem aoes not tonow official procedures in voluntarily withdrawing from the college, a note recording the unauthorized withdrawal will be transcribed on the student's permanent record. Students are not permitted to withdraw officiallyduring the last two weeks of any semester.

Teacher Education Program Entrance Into The Program - Because Dr. Martin Luther College offers only a program of education to prepare elementary teachers for the public ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, a student must pursue the prescribed teacher education program.

Policies Regarding The Professional Semester - The professional semester makes up one semester of the senior year. One half of that semester is devoted to student teaching, and the other half is devoted to professional education course work. The following policies apply to students entering the professional semester: 1. Students register for student teaching early in the second semester of the junior year. 2. Before students register for student teaching, the faculty willdetermine their eligibility to do so. This eligibility will be determined on the basis of recommendations from the faculty screening committee which will consider other factors in addition to academic standing. 3. Students must have attained the status of good standing (cf. pp. 24 - 25) before they can enter the professional semester.

In keeping with this policy, all students must attain a passing grade in a college composition course. Students are advised that grades on poorly written papers, regardless of the course, may be reduced because of the quality of the writing; in extreme cases, a failinggrade may be given for this reason.

to the Christian


Graduates of the college are ready for assignment to the Christian ministry upon recommendation of the faculty. The committee on assignments of calls, consisting of the praesidium of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and the presidents of its respective districts, determines the placement of the graduates. The college administration and faculty are represented at the meetings of this assignment committee in an advisory capacity. The committee on assignment of calls pursues the policy of not considering for assignment women graduates who intend to be married prior to the next school term.

Student Life Spiritual Ute of the Student - Student life is to be Christian life, an outward expression of inward, Spirit-worked faith in Christ. Because such faith needs continuous nourishment, life at Dr. Martin Luther College is centered in the Word of God. Students attend divine services at st. John's or St. Paul's Lutheran churches, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod churches in New Ulm. These congregations also invite the students to commune regularly at their altars. Chapel services are held each school day in the Academic Center auditorium. These devotions are designed to focus the light of the Word on student lifeand on the students' future vocation, as well as to meet their overall spiritual needs. Students are expected to attend Sunday services and chapel services regularly.

Class Attendance - Dr. Martin Luther College requires regular class attendance. Each absence from class is recorded and must be accounted for by the student. The calendar for the school year determines class days and vacation periods. Early departures and late returns at vacation time are not to be requested unless emergencies or very clear cut and acceptable reasons exist.


Conduct - A maturing Christian who is preparing for the teaching ministry in the Savior's Church is expected to exercise an increasing degree of self-discipline and sound [udgment. Hence it should not be necessary to surround him with a multitude of rules and regulations. Nevertheless, fruitful preparation for service in the Church requires the proper environment which develops from following certain fundamental policies and procedures. These policies and procedures are summarized in the student handbook. The dean of students, particularly in his function as campus pastor, concerns himself with campus life and activity so that they are consistent with a Christian profession. He and the dean of women, together with their staffs, function to serve in the most effective ways the best interests of the individual student. Inconsistencies in Christian life and principles are reasons for dismissal and are handled by the dean of students and the president.

Housing - Except for those students whose horne is in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervision. Dormitories are closed during Christmas, mid-winter, and Easter vacations. On graduation day, students are expected to be checked out of the dormitories by 5:00 p.m. Married students are responsible for making their own offcampus housing arrangements. Personal Belongings - The college provides a bed and mattress for each student. Besides personal effects, the student provides mattress pad, pillow, blankets, bedspread. The student also provides a desk lamp, unless assigned to Hillview or Summit Halls. The college cannot and does not carry insurance on the student's personal possessions. If there is concern about such coverage, it may be advisable for the student to check with the family's insurance counselor. Linen service is available to all students for $39.50 for the school year, payable in fullat time of registration. Each student receiving linen service will be furnished freshly laundered, each week, two sheets, one pillow case, two large bath towels, one small hand towel, and two wash cloths. Students not using the linen service will furnish and launder their own sheets, pillow cases, and towels. Laundry facilities are available on the campus. The college business office operates a check cashing system for the students' convenience.

Motor Vehicles - Use of motor vehicles by resident students is permitted when in conformity with established policies. A request to register a motor vehicle is to be made of the dean of students at least two weeks before the vehicle is to be brought to campus. Motor vehicle privileges entail a $15.00 registration fee, and proof of adequate insurance coverage, including coverage for passengers. More specific information regarding the possession and use of motor vehicles is available upon request from the office of the dean of students.


Student Services OrIentation _ An orientation program is conducted during the first days of each academic year and is continued at regular intervals during the first semester. The purpose of the program is to provide information relating to student life and responsibilities at Dr. Martin Luther College. All incoming freshmen and all transfer students are involved in this program.

Counseling _ Each student is assigned a faculty member as an adviser. The adviser assists in selecting the area of concentration and course electives. The student is encouraged to utilize every aspect of the counseling program. Personal problems may also be discussed with the adviser as well as with the dean of students or dean of women, both of whom maintain daily office hours. In keeping with the Christian family concept, grade reports are sent to parents at the end of each semester. In addition, mid-semester evaluations of freshmen are provided, designed primarily to indicate adjustment to college life.Since the college is concerned about its students and their performance, preparing as they are for the teaching ministry in the church, and since students are accepted by the college only upon written recommendation of their pastors, pastors of those students who are experiencing difficulties may be consulted in order to serve the students' spiritual and academic best interests.

Health Services - This unit is staffed by a registered nurse who has on file the completed health data and physical examination forms required of all entering students. A medical fee to cover authorized medical services is assessed at the time of registration along with other fees. Included in the services is a secondary insurance coverage and some basic medical supplies. Normally, the insurance provides for those involved in any sanctioned on-campus or off-campus activities. The maximum coverage is $1,000.00.For extended coverage the college makes available a voluntary , group medical and hospital program. offered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield.

Dramatics, Concerts, and Lectures - The academic community of the college presents cultural and educational events throughout the year. Numerous musical events are scheduled: recitals by staff members, solo performances by advanced students in organ and piano, and concerts by the choral and band organizations. From time to time outstanding artists are also engaged for campus performances. In addition to frequent activities by various academic divisions, the college sponsors an annual lyceum series, representing various fields of interest. Mankato State University, Gustavus Adolphus College, colleges in the Twin Cities, the University of Minnesota, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, and visits to the Minnesota Orchestra offer excellent opportunities for cultural growth.


Student Activities Extracurricular activities are an integral part of college life and contribute to the educational process; participation is encouraged. All activities and the organizations sponsoring them are under the supervision of the faculty's student service council and the student-oriented collegiate council. Colleglate Council- The collegiate council, whose membership is student elected, exists to serve the best interests of the college and its campus family. It meets regularly to discharge this responsibility and to plan student activities.

Student Union - Sociability and entertainment keynote the student union. The Joust-about (a game room), lounges, offices for student organizations, the Round Table (a snack shop), and a post office are housed in this facility. A student union board sponsors recreational activities in the union and governs its general operations.

Student Organizations - Music activities are many and varied. The band program includes the DMLCConcert Band, the Wind Ensemble, the Jazz Ensemble, a pep band, and other smaller instrumental ensembles. Other musical groups include handbell choirs and a recorder club (Pro Musica). The college has excellent facilities for theatrical productions. Plays and musicals are staged by the drama club. A drama group which gears its programs to an elementary school audience, the Children's Theater, is an organization whose objectives are especially relevant for prospective teachers. Representing the school through its publications is the privilege of those working on the D.ML C. Messenger, the college paper. Journalistic skills of another kind are developed by working on the Excelsior, the college annual.

Regular Sessions Basic Curriculum - Dr. Martin Luther College exists to prepare qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Therefore, the college offers one basic curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree. The first two years of this program provide the student with a broad general education. The final two years add to general education, but they also include specialization in the field of education and a concentration in one academic area. The areas of concentration from which a student may select one are English, mathematics, music, science, and social studies. Included within the basic curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, students may in the future serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry Dr. Martin Luther College offers the Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry for men and women of the Church to enlarge their service to the Lord and better equip themselves to meet the challenges of our changing times. Eligibility - This program has been designed for individuals who have completed an approved program of religious education. Such persons are graduates of Dr. Martin Luther College, graduates of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, and others who have completed a baccalaureate program of education and have also earned synodical certification.

Course Requirements - A minimum of eighteen semester hours of acceptable academic credit must be earned to complete the advanced study program. So that the student may pursue his interests in a manner which exposes him to as broad an experience as is possible, he will be asked to do his specialized study in three broad areas of course offerings: 1) Studies in the Scripture, 2) Studies in Religious Thought and Life, and 3) Studies in Communicating the Gospel. Since this program focuses on the Christian ministry, a minimum of six semester hours of credit in the area of Studies in the Scriptures is required. A minimum of three semester hours of credit should be earned in each of the other two areas of study with freedom of election for the remaining six semester hours of credit. Dr. Martin Luther College hopes that the individual may be best served in this manner in his service to the Church. Program Availability - The Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry is run concurrently with the regular summer session of Dr. Martin Luther College. It is offered in two short terms over a space of two and one-half weeks per term. Students may enroll in either or in both terms. Further information and course offerings for the 1984 program may be found in the summer school bulletin.


The Supervision

of Instruction


The Supervision of Instruction Program offers an opportunity for administrators of WELS Lutheran schools to gain expertise in the supervision of instruction. The primary goal of this program is to provide the participant with a basic understanding of the nature, methodology, dimensions, and problems of supervision so that he may better be able to define and enact the role of Lutheran School supervisor of instruction best suited to his personal characteristics and talents, the needs and expectations of his congregation( s) and community, and the scriptural concept of supervision.

Eligibility - This program of advanced study is designed primarily for individuals who are interested in the supervision of instruction. All participants must be synodically certified. Admission and Credits -

The program contains 21 hours of credit. Fifteen semester hours of credit must be earned in the specifically designed courses for supervisors of instruction in Lutheran schools: Introduction to Supervision (3) . Design and Development of Curriculum (3) Improving the Quality of Instruction (3) School Administration and Supervision (3) Problems in Supervision (3)

Since this program is a study of supervision of instruction in Lutheran schools, six semester hours of credit in the Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry are required. Four courses (1.5 credits each) must be chosen: two from the area of Studies in the Scripture and two from the combined areas of Studies in Religious Thought and Life and Studies in Communicating the Gospel.

Program for Subject Matter Majors and Minors Dr. Martin Luther College, since 1972,has enhanced the value of the B.S.Ed. degree, awarded to graduates, by requiring each student to pursue an ..area of concentration" in one of five subject matter areas. Now,particulariywith the expansion ofthe Synod's secondary school system, more of the Synod's teachers, present and future, have felt the need for the additional learning and credits that would provide a complete subject matter major. Since the summer of 1983,the college has offered interested students, graduates, and others the opportunity to earn enough credits to complete a subject matter major in English, Social Studies, or Science.


Requirement. for Major - To qualify for the subject matter major in English, a student will have earned a minimum of 36 credits in English. To qualify for the subject matter major in Social Studies, a student will have earned a minimum of 42 credits in Social Studies. To qualify for the subject matter major in Science, a student will have earned a minimum of 48 credits in Science. Minors in Biology and Physical Science require the student to earn 27 and 29 credits, respectively. Eligibility - Teachers and others who have already graduated may apply for admission to the program through the Director of Special Services: Normally, they will earn credits toward the major by attending summer school. Undergraduates who wish to graduate with a subject matter major will, in consultation with their advisers, begin in their Freshman or Sophomore years to select courses with this goal in mind, and to start earning credits toward it by attending summer school. Formal request to enter the program will be made during the second semester of the Junior year, and will be considered at a meeting of the student, the adviser, and the concerned division chairman. Dr. Martin Luther College undergraduates who wish to earn subject matter majors must also meet all the other requirements for the for graduation from DMLC.In effect, then, an undergraduate student may earn a double major, one in Elementary Education, and another in English, Social Studies, or Science. Available Courses - Many of the courses which may be taken to earn the subject matter major are already available as electives in the English, Social Studies, or Science areas of concentration. While area of concentration requirements can be met by a selection from these courses, a student earning a subject matter major will have taken most of them. Additional new courses will therefore be added from time to time and offered in summer sessions. For Further Information special services.
