A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Young people who are choosing a career often look for something important and interesting, something challenging and exciting. There are many who crave the latest in man's wisdom and are overwhelmingly impressed by the many opportunities the world of education and technology has to offer them. There are so many things which are new and even startling to their minds that they give little thought to the worthwhile task of dedicating their lives to work in the spiritual world, to preach and to teach the Word of God to others. There is a danger in becoming so interested and involved in the things which are seen and temporal that they easily lose sight of that which is infinitely more important, their soul's eternal welfare. But what a joy and privilege there is for those who would spend their lives in teaching children and young people the truths of God's Word, the Gospel of a Savior slain, telling one and all in the words of that Savior whom we worship as our Lord and God, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Matt. 4:4). We have the assurance that while heaven and earth shall pass away with all its marvels, that Word which he has given us to proclaim and share shall not pass away. The marvels of science, the wisdom of the philosopher, the charms of music, the beauties of this world are not unknown to our mighty and loving God. He is the creator of all things. He does not forbid us to delve into the mysteries of nature and the wisdom of this world. As part of his creation he has given us minds and senses to use, to learn and to appreciate the world about us. However, God's Word and that alone can answer life's biggest questions. Those who preach and teach that Word have a very important and challenging work to do, a work which enjoys his richest blessings. The education given at Dr. Martin Luther College rests on the conviction that every area of academic endeavor must be tied to the cross. Christ is the center and heart of all learning. His redeeming love and unmerited grace give meaning and purpose to our lives and all our learning. The staffing of the faculty, the curriculum, the student activities, and the physical facilities are so designed as to offer students a thorough and well-rounded program in preparation for the high calling of serving the Savior in the teaching ministry. While students of Dr. Martin Luther College, upon graduation, receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education, they will recognize above all the wonderful love and grace of God in providing them with the necessary gifts to reach such a goal as well as the privilege he grants them to enter into the work of the church and assist in carrying out the Savior'S command, "Feed my lambs, feed my sheep." To this end we shall strive to serve young people In the coming years.

THE JOY OF TEACHING Professor Arlen Koestler is a member of the DMLC English Division, serves as the Director of Developmental Education, and has recently served as DMLC's Recruitment Director. "As I ponder the opportunity I have to serve my Savior here at DMLC, working with the future teachers of His church and experiencing the joys of the teaching ministry myself, I am reminded of the following words of a favorite hymn, And then for work to do for Thee, Which shall so sweet a service be That angels well might envy me, Christ Crucified, I come."

History of the College 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 1883 convention 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 the time Dr. Martin Luther College became the teacher education college for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption for almost one hundred 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 (WELS) in 1959. At the time of the original merger in 1892, a three-year preparatory curriculum and a twoyear 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 four-year 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. A secondary teacher education program (STEP)at Dr. Martin Luther College was authorized by the WELS in convention in 1987. As a result the five-year elementary/secondary program was inaugurated by the college in the fall of 1988. The first class to complete this program will graduate in the spring of 1993.



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 freedombringing 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 of man's God-given iseworthy,

effects of sin we may appreciate

talents for doing, thinking,


and mentally and emotionally


third, that we may come away from this experience God's ways among

men and a heightened

derive from divinely

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, and a five-year curriculum in secondary education and church musicianship, both culminating in a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education and enabling graduates with synodical certification to teach in the schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Its summer sessions offer undergraduate courses, a program of selected subject-matter majors and minors, advanced study programs, enrichment courses and workshops. Its synodical certification program offers those who have the necessary 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.



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 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.




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, a faculty member who serves as secretary, and the vice president for academic affairs who is the chairman. This council is responsible to the faculty and the president.

Accreditation and Membership Dr. Martin Luther College is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Dr. Martin Luther College is on the list of schools recognized by the United States Department of Education. It is also approved for nonimmigrant foreign students by the Immigration Service of the United States Department of Justice. The college is a member of the American Council on Education. It also holds membership in the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities.

Location New Ulm is located in the south central section of Minnesota, 100 miles southwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul. It is accessible by two major highways, US 14 and State 15, and by bus service with connections to all parts of the United States via Mankato. Commercial air travel is available at Mankato and at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Campus The fifty-acre campus, with a beautiful natural setting, lies on a wooded range of hills overlooking the city. It is truly a park, softening the austere lines generally associated with a complex of institutional buildings. Across the street from the campus is Hermann Park, and adjacent to it is Harman Park with fine recreational facilities. Directly below the hill on which DMLC is located the city of New Ulm has erected a recreational center. This includes an indoor swimming and diving pool, an arena which has an indoor ice rink, and racquet ball courts. These are available for student use. Picturesque Flandrau State Park, with good hiking, picnic, and camping areas, is situated within easy walking distance of the campus.

Admissions Policy - Because of its singular function and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College must consider carefully the vocational goals of all applicants. Therefore primary consideration is given to qualified applicants who intend to prepare for the teaching ministry in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. The college is also dedicated to receiving qualified applicants who intend to prepare for the teaching ministry in church bodies or congregations which publicly share the doctrinal position of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Classification - Because they are enrolled in courses preparatory to full-time service in the church, all students are classified as divinity students. As a result, on completion of the prescribed curriculum, all qualified graduates are presented to the Church as candidates for assignment through a divine call.

Financial Aid Dr. Martin Luther College believes that the primary responsibility for financing a college education lies with the student and his or her parents. However, the college does not want anyone who wishes to become a Lutheran elementary or secondary teacher to be deprived of the opportunity for lack of financial resources. For this reason the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod bears a large share of the costs (about one-half) to keep them as low as possible. In addition a financial aid program and a financial aid office are available to assist the student. 1. DMLC Administered Sources of Financial Aid Financial aid is available In the form of scholarships, grants-In-aid, loans, and employment. For this DMLC makes use of its own funds and resources and of synodical funds and programs. The college also will assist the student In making use of state and federal programs, such as the Minnesota State Scholarship and Grant (for Minnesota residents only), PellGrant, Supplemental Grant (SEOG),Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan (formerly Guaranteed Student Loan), Minnesota SELF loan program, PLUS and SLS loans, and College Work-Study. Travel assistance Is available for those who live more than 750 miles from New Ulm. Most forms of financial aid are based on need. See application notes below.


2. Outside Sources of Financial Aid The student may also be eligible for assistance from other state and federal programs, such as Veteran's Benefits, Bureau of Indian Affairs, or Vocational Rehabilitation. Individual congregations, schools, and businesses have scholarships for members, graduates, or children of employees.

3. Application for Financial Aid Each applicant to DMLC will receive a financial aid application and brochure. A more detailed description of the sources of financial aid and the requirements for receiving H may be found In the Financial Aid Brochure. Application for financial aid may be made any time during the school year; however, DMLC funds are limited and there is a priority date of May 15,1991. Most forms of financial aid require basically two items:

a. A completed DMLC Financial Aid Application. b. A completed financial needs analysis: the Family Financial Statement (FFS) of the American College Testing Program (ACT) or the Financial Aid Form (FAF) of the College Scholarship Service (CSS). These should be available from high school guidance counselors or one will be sent upon request. For further information write to the Financial Aid Office at the college. Financial aid applications and need analysis forms are available after January 1, 1991. 4. Funds a.

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, if he 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 advisor the desirability of reducing his course load to aid him in acquiring good standing. Ifthe course load is reduced, consultation between the student and his advisor and the advice of the registrar will determine the coursers) 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 advisor the extent of his extraclass 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 advisor, 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. 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 if a student desires to better his grade point average. Only 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 stances, through the Dr. Martin Luther College correspondence Credit

Hour Load -

To be classified as full-time, a student


program. must be enrolled in at least

twelve hours for credit (3/4 time = 9 credits; 1/2 time = 6 credits). The maximum academic

load per semester (excluding credit for choir, band and keyboard) is as follows: Freshmen: 16V2 hours; sophomores: 19V2 hours; juniors: 19 hours; seniors: 18 hours; 5th year: 19 hours. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course if he is enrolled in the Secondary Teacher Education Program or if he 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 advisor and the registrar. A student may register to audit a course if in good standing and with the consent of his advisor, the instructor of the class he wishes to audit, and the registrar. An audit may be changed to a course being taken for credit ifthe 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 advisor and the registrar. Advanced Placement Examination - High school students who receive a grade of three, four, 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 advisor, the instructor of the course, and the registrar. Withdrawal from an elective keyboard course also requires 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 necessaryto withdraw from the college must first report to his advisor for instructions on procedures. When a student does notfollow official procedures involuntarily 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 officially during the last two weeks of any semester. Transcripts - One free transcript is available to each student. A fee of $2.00 is charged for each subsequent transcript. Transcript requests must be made in writing and must be signed by the applicant.

Entrance Into the Program - Because Dr. Martin Luther College expects all students to pursue a program of education to become elementary teachers for the public ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, a student must pursue the prescribed elementary 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 will determine 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 (ct. page 32) before they can enter the professional semester. Note: Students who also elect to take the secondary teacher education program will be guided by similar policies for the additional professional semester in their fifth year.


Early Field Experience


In order to become familiar with the responsibilities of the teaching ministry before they enter student teaching, all students must meet the requirements of a two-phase early field experience. EFE is a non-credit requirement of the Dr. Martin Luther College curriculum in professional education. Students must complete this program prior to their elementary student teaching. PHASE ONE: ONE¡WEEK EXPERIENCE All freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will participate in an early field experience during one week midway through the second semester. The actual week for the experience is indicated on the college calendar. Freshmen receive their experience on campus through a variety of activities. Sophomores and juniors are responsible for making arrangements to receive their experience In a Lutheran school classroom. Sophomores enrolled in the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) may arrange to gain their experience in a WELS high school. All other sophomores and all juniors must receive their experience In a Lutheran elementary school. PHASE TWO: INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE All students are required to record a minimum of thirty hours of experience in activities related to the work of the teaching ministry. Ten hours must be completed each year of the freshman, sophomore, and junior years. Students are to gain some experience in four areas: college activities related to children, congregational activities, classroom activities, and nonclassroom activities with children.

Andrew Retzlaff, Kyle Bender, and David Russ participated In DMLC's first EFE week for freshmen, March 12 to 16, 1990.


Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) Students who enter the secondary education program can choose from six majors: English, mathematics, music, physical education, science, and social studies. Each major has been carefully crafted by the DMLC faculty to meet the teaching needs of schools in the WELS. Professional education courses support each major. These courses include studies in adolescent psychology, reading methods, student teaching, and content teaching methods for specific majors. Representatives of the high schools have strongly expressed the importance of having secondary teachers educated under the influence of Christian principles of education and showing dedication and commitment based on a Gospel-enlightened understanding of church and ministry. Therefore, religion courses are the backbone of the curriculum at DMLC and every subject is studied in a Christian atmosphere. A major in church musicianship is also included in the program. The five-year program, therefore, will prepare students as: o HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS o ELEMENTARYSCHOOL TEACHERS o CHURCH MUSICIANS

Questions and Answers about STEP Q.

When do new DMLC students decide whether to enter the 4-year program for elementary teacher education or the 5-year STEP dual track program?


Normally, students will have to decide as freshmen. Exceptions may occur.


O. Will STEP graduates be called to high schools and academies right after they finish the program? A. Some may but others may be called to serve in an elementary school (which, of course, includes the "junior high" age students). At present, there Is not a consistent need for a sizable number of WELS secondary teachers although the number of high schools continues to increase. Some high schools prefer to call from the field from qualified candidates with about five years of experience in the elementary school. O. Should a prospective student consider a high school teaching position to be more glamorous than an elementary teaching position? A. Certainly not. DMLC and the WELS have always held that elementary education is both crucial and fundamental. While teaching higher grade levels may require different knowledge and skills, both elementary and secondary teachers must be bright and dedicated and both kinds of teachers are important in kingdom work. O. Will all the students in the STEP program earn a subject major and minor? A. Yes. The minor will be social studies except when that field is the student's major. Those students will earn a minor in English. O. What is different about the music major in the STEP program? A. Students can choose an emphasis in instrumental study, choral study, or, if they want to teach in an elementary school and serve as church musician, they can further develop their talents in areas important to the ministry of music in WELS schools and congregations. O. What is the purpose of the physical education major program? A.

This program suits well the graduate who will coach and teach physical education in either the secondary school or the elementary school.

O. What effect will a 5-year program have on financial aid availability? A. Students may remain eligible for financial aid until they graduate from the 5-year program. O. What kind of degree will the STEP graduates receive? A. They will receive a Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a certificate that indicates their completion of the secondary track program also. Sample programs of study for each major are available upon request.

Writing Policy - Because the college considers the ability to express oneself clearly, correctly, and responsibly in writing to be a necessity for college work and a characteristic of the competent, qualified Christian educator, it strives to teach and maintain good writing practices. 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 failing grade may be given for this reason.

Policies Regarding Graduation 1. The final thirty semester hours of credit must be earned in residence at Dr. Martin Luther College. 2. A minimum average of 2.000 for the total number of courses taken during the college years is required.

Assignment to the Christian Ministry Graduates of the college are ready for assignment to the Christian ministry upon recommendation of the faculty. The committee on assignment 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 qornmlttee 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. However, they may later be called by congregations through their respective district presidents. Prior to 1981, all graduates who were eligible and available for assignment did receive calls. More than ninety-two percent of such graduates of the years 1981-89 have received calls. Assessment of future needs and enrollment shows that there may again soon be a shortage of eligible and available graduates.

Student Life Spiritual LIfe 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 5t. John's or 5t. 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 life and on the students' Mure vocation, as well as to meet their overall spiritual needs. Students are expected to attend Sunday services and chapel services regularly.

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. A special drug and alcohol abuse orientation program is conducted through the office of the dean of students. All incoming freshmen and all transfer students are involved in these programs. Counseling - Each student is assigned a faculty member as an advisor. The advisor 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 advisor as well as with the dean of students or dean of women, both of whom maintain daily office hours. Students receive grade reports at the end of each semester. In addition, students may receive mid-semester evaluations from their advisors. At registration, students may sign a request that their parents also receive copies of the semester grade reports and any correspondence pertaining to academic standing. 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. 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, band and handbell 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. Visits to Mankato State University, Gustavus Adolphus College, colleges in MinneapolisSI.Paul, the University of Minnesota, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, the Ordway Theater, and excursions to hear the Minnesota and 51. Paul Chamber Orchestras 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. Collegiate 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 operation. Student Organizations - Music activities are many and varied. The band program includes the DMLC Wind Ensemble, the Jazz Ensemble, a pep band and other small instrumental ensembles. Other musical groups include handbell choirs and a recorder club (Pro Musica). Students belong to one of three choirs. 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.M.L.C. Messenger, the college paper. Journalistic skills of another kind are developed by working on the Excelsior, the college annual. Student organizations which provide for a wide range of interests are organized for students with special interests, skills, and abilities. Funds collected by the treasurers of all student organizations are deposited in the business office for safe keeping and proper accounting. Athletics - A comprehensive program of intramural and intercollegiate athletics is offered both men and women. The college holds membership in the National Small College Athletic Association which offers national championship competition for men and women in selected sports. The women compete in intercollegiate volleyball, cross country, basketball, softball, tennis, and track with members of the Midwestern Women's Athletic Conference. The intramural program involves basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, touch football, badminton, fun run, freethrow contest and sand volleyball. Men's intercollegiate sports include football, basketball, baseball, tennis, cross country and golf. The college competes in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference.

Regular Sessions Basic Curriculum - Dr. Martin Luther College exists to prepare qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Lutheran elementary and secondary 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 or three years add to general education, but they also include specialization in the field of education and a concentration or major in one academic area. The areas of concentration from which a student may select are English, mathematics, music, science, and social studies; students in the elementary and secondary program select a major from English, mathematics, music, physical education, science, and social studies. Included within the basic curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, students may serve in the future as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

Plano and Organ - In the general education program, all students are required to earn two semester hours of credit in keyboard. Keyboard work begins in the first semester of the freshman year and continues In consecutive semesters until requirements are met. Students begin keyboard work (piano or organ) at the level at which their previous experience places them. Placement is determined bythe music faculty. Students with little or no previous keyboard experience, who may not be able to meet the minimum requirements as set forth in 4031 and 4032, are permitted a maximum of two additional semesters to complete the work. The minimum requirements are designed to indicate sufficient facility to teach classroom music and conduct devotions. A semester of work not meeting the minimum course requirements receives the grade of S if progress is satisfactory or U if progress is unsatisfactory. Piano and organ instruction is given on an individual lesson basis. A minimum of fifteen one-half hour lessons per semester is required in order to earn credit. Instruction in beginning piano is given in a group situation (4030) with three class meetings per week. Special considerations may allow a student to take double lessons in organ and piano courses. Permission for this privilege is granted by the instructor, advisor, and registrar under the guidelines for "credit hour load" on page 33 of this catalog. Additional fees are required. Students having completed 4032 or its equivalent may take organ instruction. Credit toward graduation is granted for keyboard work required in the music concentration. Others may elect keyboard work for credit or no credit (audit). No minimum cumulative grade point average is required for this election. Plano 4030 or 4031, and 4032.

Purpose - Dr. Martin Luther College Summer Session, a department of the division of special services, shares with the college its purpose of preparing qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Lutheran schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. In sharing in this aim, it offers a program which 1. provides opportunity for further study and professional education to persons already involved in the work of Christian education; 2. assists individuals teaching in Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod schools, both elementary and secondary, and those desirous of becoming teachers in these schools, in meeting the requirements for certification; and 3. assists students enrolled in regular sessions to attain their vocational goal. Application for Enrollment - Applications for enrollment may be made to the Director of Special Services, Dr. Martin Luther College, 1884 College Heights, New Ulm, MN 56073. New students are asked to file a transcript of credits with the registrar. This is particularly true if the student wishes to obtain a degree from Dr. Martin Luther College. All matters relating to credits and graduation are to be referred to the registrar. Program - The maximum number of credits which a student can normally earn during a summer session is six semester hours. A complete class schedule, costs, and a detailed description of all courses, workshops, and independent study projects are available in the summer session bulletin. For further information, contact the Director of Special Services (cf. page 82).



Study Program in the Christian


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 is designed for 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 Ufe, 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 Scripture 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. 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 one term during two and one-half weeks of the summer session.

School Administration and Supervision Program The School Administration and Supervision Program offers an opportunity for administrators of WELS schools to gain expertise in administration and in supervision of instruction. The program is designed to help the participant be better able to define and enact the roles of administrator and supervisor 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 supervision of instruction in Lutheran schools: Legal Matters in Lutheran Education (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 hours of credit in the Advanced

courses (1.5 credits each) must be chosen: and two from the combined Communicating

of instruction in Lutheran schools, six semester

Study Program in the Christian Ministry are required. Four two from the area of Studies in the Scripture

areas of Studies in Religious Thought and Life and Studies in

the Gospel.

Subject MaHer Majors and Minors Program Dr. Martin Luther College, since 1972, has enhanced the value of the Bachelor of Science in Education degree, awarded to graduates, by requiring each student to pursue an "area of concentration" in one of five subject matter areas. Now, particularly with the expansion of the 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. Minors in biology and physical science are also available. Requirements 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 or minor by attending summer school. Undergraduates who wish to graduate with a subject matter major or minor 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. Undergraduates should also consider the STEP described elsewhere in this catalog. Dr. Martin Luther College undergraduates who wish to earn subject matter majors must also meet all the other requirements for the B.S.Ed. degree. In effect, then, an undergraduate student may earn a double major, one in elementary education, and another in English, social studies, or science.

Correspondence Study Program In an effort to serve better the church and more specifically the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, Dr. Martin Luther College has established a correspondence study program. This program is intended to provide opportunity for additional study for men and women to become better qualified as teachers in our Lutheran elementary schools and high schools or as lay leaders in our congregations. The following courses are currently available: 6025C 6020C 6050C

3 credits 3 credits 3 credits

The Life of Christ Christian Doctrine I Christian Doctrine II

Description - Correspondence courses aid an individual in achieving an educational goal through home study under professional guidance. The correspondence courses offered by Dr. Martin Luther College are prepared and taught by members of the faculty who usually teach the same courses on campus. The content, work requirement, and credit offered for courses in the correspondence program are equivalent to the same courses in the regular program of the college. Normally, a three-credit correspondence course is divided into 24 lessons plus midterm and final examinations. A correspondence course should be completed within one year of registration. Eligibility - Enrollment in the correspondence course program for credit is open to all who would qualify for admission into regular and summer school sessions of Dr. Martin Luther College. A student in residence at DMLC may not have concurrent enrollment in a correspondence course without the permission of the registrar. Sunday school teachers and laymen are also encouraged to apply even if they are not interested in academic credit. Admission - Application for correspondence study may be made at any time. Persons who wish to take correspondence courses for certification credit should be previously accepted into the certification program. Cost - The fee for a three-credit correspondence course is $150.00. Other costs to the student include textbooks, materials, and mailing expenses. Further Information - Complete information concerning the correspondence study program may be obtained by addressing your request to the director of special services.



Study Projects


The independent study program offers an opportunity for individuals or small groups (school faculties or persons with common interests) to engage in on-campus, guided study and discussion of topics of interest to them but not included in the current summer session offerings. Eligibility - The independent study program is open to all teachers. A maximum of three credits earned in appropriate independent study projects may be applied toward the Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry. Admission and Credits - Arrangements for independent study projects with one or more faculty members to serve as advisors should be made through the director of special services by May 15. This will provide time for student(s) and advisor(s) to agree upon a topic, goals, credits to be earned, and standards of evaluation for the independent study project. From one to three credits may be earned over a period of from one to five weeks. The cost is $70.00 per credit.

Inservice Program for Lutheran Teachers Dr. Martin Luther College is offering to interested faculties or groups of teachers two offcampus programs, Workshops in Effective Instruction and Courses for Enhancing Instruction. The Workshops in Effective Instruction are designed to acquaint teachers with what research, theory, and practice suggest are effective procedures, techniques, methods, and materials in a particular subject. The workshops are intended to equip teachers to improve the quality of instruction in their classrooms. The Courses for Enhancing Instruction are one-credit courses which can broaden the teacher's understanding of a particular academic area and which can strengthen and encourage the teacher through the study of God's Word. Schools may wish to incorporate the workshops or courses into their faculty inservice programs. For further information, contact the Director of Special Services. See page 82.
