Professor John Gronholz

THE JOY OF TEACHING Professor John Gronholz is a member of the DMLC Education Division, teaches in the Physical Education Department, and coaches. "The teaching ministry is about sharing. It is sharing the life-saving message of Jesus Christ crucified with the lost souls of this world. It is sharing the love of Christ with a fellow Christian who needs comfort and reassurance. It is sharing the responsibility for training future teachers who will spread his word. The joy that I find in the teaching ministry comes from knowing that what I do matters. God has chosen me to be a part of this sharing."

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 [otnt 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 drawn from the God-given Scriptures. We regard human beings as the crown of God's creation. As such, they were made to know God and to share his company. They were endowed with gifts that permitted them to become acquainted with, enjoy the use of, and find cause for wonder and gratitude in all that God fashioned for their service and delight. We also hold to the reality of sin, a persistent hereditary wickedness in human beings which compels them to oppose the gracious Creator. In sin we find the underlying cause for all evil; it ruptured the Creator's design for the human race, frustrated creation's service to all people and fixed on them a guilt and helplessness from which God alone could set them free. This he did through his Son, the God-Man Jesus Christ, who entered history and restored the Creator's eternal deslgn for his people. In the person and work of Jesus Christ we find the basis for our Christian assurance that the sinful human being was 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 the potential of body and soul to the glory of God; to the human family - an obligation to proclaim the freedom-bringing and to do good In whatever other manner we have opportunity;

truth in Christ

to the environment - the recognition that all created things are gifts of God to be investigated, respected, and 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 people and their 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 stili 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 people hope 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 people and their culture we may see in broad context the persistent weaknesses and failings of human beings, and their continuing need for the Savior;


second, that despite the crippling

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 an example of a God-pleasing 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 candidates thoroughly qualified for discharging the high responsibilities of the Christian ministry in a manner that is Godpleasing and worthy of the world's respect. This responsibility awakens a variety of auxiliary enterprises whereby the school and its faculty freely serve both their constituency and the general public. As the educational institution training men and women for teaching or other staff ministry in the church it serves, Dr. Martin Luther College recognizes an obligation to furnish 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, 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.

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. Nondiscriminatory Policy - In view of the fact that the sole purpose of this college is to ecucate students for the teaching and the staff ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, this institution does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, age, sex or marital status in administration of Its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs. Hence this Institution serves all without exception who meet the Biblical and synodical standards for service in the Church. DMLC adheres to the requirements of Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the ADA policy 1990. Agreement - Because the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod underwrites a substantial portion of the educational costs, the Board of Control requires all full-time students to state that


1) they agree to the objectives and policies set forth in the college catalog; 2) they agree to pursue the college's program of studies which is designated to prepare students for the teaching and the staff ministry in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod; and 3) they will as graduates, if recommended by the faculty for assignment, submit to the decision of the assignment committee of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and when assigned assume their calling in the church wherever placed unless as members of a church body in fellowship with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod they are to be assigned by their own church body.

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), Pell Grant, 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 assistancefrom other state and federal programs, such as Veteran's Benefits, Bureau of Indian Affairs, or Vocational Rehabilitation.IndMdual congregations, schools, and businesseshave scholarshipsfor members, graduates,or children of employees.

3. Application for FinancialAid 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 It may be found In the Rnanclal Aid Brochure. Applicationfor financialaid may be madeany time during the school year; however,DMLCfunds are limited and there is a priority date of May 15, 1993.

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. The grade-point average is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours taken. A minimum final semester and cumulative grade-point average of 2.000 Is required for graduation. MINIMUM SEMESTER AND CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE FOR GOOD STANDING

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 wHh his advisor the desirabilHyof reducing his course load to aid him In acquiring good standing. If the course load is reduced, consultation between the student and his advisor 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 wHhhis advisor the extent of his extraclass activHies and outside employment. For participation in such activHies and employment, both of which can make increased demands on the student's time, the student shall secure the approval of a review commHtee 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 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 (3/4 time = 9 credits; 1/2 time = 6 credits). The normal academic load per semester for both the elementary and the secondary teacher education programs (excluding credit for elective choir, band, and keyboard) is as follows: Freshmen 15-19 hours 16-20 hours Sophomores Juniors 16-20 hours Seniors 16-20 hours Fifth Year 16-20 hours A student enrolled in either program may be permitted to carry one additional course if (1) he has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 or better, and (2) the number of hours taken by the student in any given semester (excluding elective choir, band, and keyboard) does not exceed 22. Permission to assume such an overload is obtained by the student from his advisor and the registrar. For the Minnesota Scholarship and Grant Program (Minnesota residents only) the requirement for a full-time grant is 15 credits. Grant amounts are pro-rated if a student carries less than 15 credits per semester. 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 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 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 F. Such an F will be counted

withdrawal from a course will be recorded as an

in the grade point average.

WHhdrawal from College - The student who finds it necessary to withdraw from the college must first report to his advisor for instructions on procedures. When a student does not follow 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 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.

Teacher Education Program Students who enroll at Dr. Martin Luther College have two options: 1. to enter the four-year WELS elementary teacher education program, or, 2. to enter the five-year dual program qualifying graduates to serve as teachers in WELS elementary andWELS secondary schools (high schools and academies).

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 four- or five-year 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 29) 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. Transfer students will receive guidelines for their EFE requirements upon admission to Dr. Martin Luther College. 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. Students must complete and register the first twenty hours of individual EFE before they will be permitted to register for student teaching.

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 ofthe course, may be reduced because ofthe quality ofthe writing; in extreme cases, a failing grade may be given for this reason. In addition to the freshman composition class and written assignments across the curriculum, the college requires a further evaluation of writing: a special essay written by each student in the junior year. This essay will be judged by a faculty jury on a pass/fail basis. Students will have to achieve a passing grade on this essay before being granted entrance into the professional semester. Students who fail will have the opportunity to rewrite the essay. Their rewriting will be contingent upon some further preparation on their part under the direction of the Developmental Education Center.





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. 3. A minimum average of 2.000 is required for all the subject major courses taken by STEP students. 4. Effective with the entering freshman class in the fall of 1993, a minimum grade point average of 2.000 will be required for the three Bible study courses: 6001 or 6003, 6002 or 6004, and 6021. In addition, a minimum grade point average of 2.000 is required for the three doctrine courses: 6020, 6050, and 6075. 5. For recommendation as a candidate for assignment to the teaching ministry, a student must earn a "C" (2.000) grade or better in 1085 Elementary StudentTeaching. In addition, STEP students must earn a "C" (2.000) grade or better in 1086 Student Teaching in the Secondary School or 1068 Parish Music Practicum. 6. A student must be in good standing in his final semester to be eligible for the degree. 7. The student accepts full responsibility for meeting all requirements for graduation.

Degree and Certification - Students who satisfactorily complete the college curriculum are graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education. Graduates recommended by the faculty for assignment to the Christian ministry have also met the teacher certification requirements of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Though Dr. Martin Luther College is accredited as a baccalaureate degree granting institution by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, this degree does not qualify its graduates for state teaching certification without some additional course work.

Assignment to the Christian Ministry Graduates of the college are ready for assignment to the Christian ministry upon recommendation ofthe 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 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. However, they may later be called by congregations through their respective district prssldents. 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 1981-90 have received calls. In 1991 and again In 1992 all graduates who were eligible and available for assignment received calls into the teaching ministry.


Student Life SpIrItual Ufe 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 EvangelicalLutheran 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. 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 retums at vacation time do not demonstrate good stewardship in attending classes. Conduct - A maturing Christian who is preparing for the teaching ministry is expected to exercise an increasing degree of self-discipline and sound judgment. Hence it should not be necessaryto surround him with a multitude of rules and regulations. Nevertheless,fruitful preparationfor service in the Church requires the proper environment which develops from following certain fundamental poltcles 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 each 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 homes are in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervision. The dormitories open to all students beginning at 3 p.m. on the Thursday before the opening of school. Dormitories are closed during Christmas, early spring, 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 off-campus 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 Hall. The college cannot and does not carry insurance on the student's personal possessions. If there Is concern about such coverage, the student Is advised to check with the family's insurance counselor. Unen service Is available to all students for $62.50 for the school year, payable in full at time of registration. Each student receiving linen service is 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 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 $20.00 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. 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 dally 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 MinneapolisSt.Paul, the University of Minnesota, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, the Ordway Theater, and excursions to hear the Minnesota Orchestra and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra offer excellent opportunities for cultural growth.

Student Activities Extracurricularactivitiesare 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 - Sociabilityand entertainmentkeynotethe student union.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Education Degree Basic Curriculum - The teacher education program of 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 a 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 teacher education curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, graduates may serve in the Mure as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

at Dr. Martin Luther College

Students who enter the five-year elementary-secondary teacher 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

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 by the 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. When 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. Some instruction in piano is given in a group situation 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 30 of this catalog. Additional fees are required.

Subject Matter 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. 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 earn credits toward the major or minor by attending summer sessions. Undergraduates who wish to graduate with a subject matter major or minor will, in consultation with their advisors, 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 advisor, and the appropriate 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. Available Courses - Many of the courses which may be taken to earn the subject matter major are already available as electives in English, social studies, or science. Additional new courses are from time to time offered in summer sessions.

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 $225.00. 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 $80.00 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 88.

Staff Ministry Program (StaMP) In addition to elementary and secondary teacher education the board of control and faculty of Dr. Martin Luther College are pleased to announce the beginning of the Staff Ministry Program. The delegates of the 1991 WELS Convention authorized the college to begin this new program. The growth of our congregations, the geographical dispersion of the members in mission and urban areas, the changing social circumstances of families and neighborhoods, the shortage of pastors, the new potential for second career ministry, and the goals of the WELS Mission-Vision 2000 + are important factors for the beginning of this program to assist in the ministry of the church. The Staff Ministry Program will begin with three areas of specialization for service to the church: Evangelism, Family and Youth Ministry, and Deaconess. In the future the Ministry of Administration will be added to this program. A five-year course of study, semester by semester, has been proposed by the college for this program. Anyone interested and desiring further information may contact Professor Lawrence O. Olson, Director of the Staff Ministry Program.
