The New Monmouth Curriculum
What form of undergraduate education best prepares students to live in a rapidly changing world? How can a college education provide students with marketable skills for new and emerging employment opportunities while instilling the time tested values of a liberal arts education? The program of study at Monmouth College is a distinctive answer to these questions. We respond with a curriculum that fosters personal growth and prepares our students for professional success in competitive and changing environments. We also ask ourselves and our students to respond to an essential paradox of being in the world: namely that we achieve the greatest measure of individual freedom, the fullest realization of our individual humanity in the larger context of social responsibility. Our curriculum is both intentional and integrated in its several parts: Foundation Skills, Integrated Studies, Area Studies, the Major, and Electives. Although each of these elements has its specific purpose, together they provide a struc-
ture that guides students toward the goals of a liberal education: to think critically, to communicate effectively, to appreciate the varieties of human experience and achievement, to articulate and develop ethical values, to pursue expertise in a discipline, and to discover patterns of meaning across disciplines. In the fall of 2012, we added even more enrichment to our curriculum. Some colleges give students the option of taking 15-18 credit hours per semester, where other institutions offer trimesters, offering 3-4 classes per trimester. Monmouth College offers the best of both worlds. Each credit is equivalent to our prior four credit courses. Our new academic plan, commonly referred to as the â€œ4-4â€?, not only gives students more time outside of the classroom, but challenges them through intellectual and interactive means. Students take four classes per semester, they dig deeper into each course, work on more meaningful projects, and discover the connections between their academic and co-curricular lives.
Each entering student is assigned a faculty advisor. For first year students this person is the instructor in their Introduction to Liberal Arts (ILA) course. The advisor helps introduce the student into the college â€“ helping them navigate the curriculum and the registration process. Students and advisors discuss long range academic goals, like careers and graduate school, as well as the shorter term issues, such as what courses should you take next semester or when would be a good semester to study abroad. To best facilitate these discussions, once ILA is complete, it is recommended that a student find an advisor in their major. A change of advisor form needs to be filed with the Office of the Registrar.
Academic Support Located in Poling Hall, the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) provides academic services to meet the needs of Monmouth College students at all levels. The TLC offers many services: tutoring (drop-in and appointments) in many academic disciplines, supplemental instruction (SI) for selected courses, study skills workshops and support for other academic needs including ADA services. However, TLC is not the only place tutoring is offered. The Writing Center is located in Mellinger Hall. There, the Writing Fellows serve students by offering support to writing efforts from across the curriculum. Dr. Mishelle Oaks, Director of Academic Support Programs email@example.com 309-457-2257
Academics The Semester Calendar The academic year at Monmouth is organized into two semesters. In each semester, students typically take 4 course credits. The first semester begins in late August, ending before the Christmas holidays. The second semester begins in late January, ending in early-May. Courses can meet from 2-5 days each week.
Class Attendance Monmouth College expects students to attend class regularly and to inform instructors promptly of any condition that prevents them from doing so. Students are responsible for all work assigned in a course. Faculty members set their own specific attendance policies which are described in their syllabi. Students are expected to frequently check their MC email accounts. This will be how instructors and college offices communicated most regularly. If a student has difficulty accessing their email, they need to notify Information Systems immediately to remedy the issue.
Academic Honesty Monmouth College students are expected to conduct themselves with the utmost integrity in all academic experiences. Academic dishonesty includes any action by a student to misrepresent their own (or collude to misrepresent others) efforts to fulfill an academic requirement. Such behavior may result not only in failure in the course, but in suspension or dismissal from the College. Some forms of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to: • Cheating on tests, labs, etc. • Plagiarism, i.e., using the words, ideas, writing, or work of another without giving appropriate credit. • Improper collaboration between students, i.e. not doing one’s own work on outside assignments specified as group projects by the instructor. • For more detailed explanation of the hearing process, refer to the Scots Guide.
Introduction to Liberal Arts The Introduction to the Liberal Arts (ILA) is the course that presents you with multiple disciplinary opportunities to interact with ideas and topics of study. As we supply you with the tools and perspectives necessary to understand the complexity of the world, we expect that you will begin using these skills to analyze and evaluate previous understandings of the phenomena around us as well as beginning the work of creating new ideas, solving problems, and pushing the boundary of knowledge further than where you first encountered it. Historically, Liberal Arts colleges have adhered to a mission and vision of education that is reflected in the following passage: Rather than emphasizing a specific course of study or professional training, liberal arts colleges aim to expose students to a wide breadth of courses in the humanities and both physical and social sciences. Although the curriculum varies from college to college, a student’s coursework at a liberal arts school would include many or all of the following subjects: history, philosophy, religion, literature, physical sciences (e.g., biology, chemistry, physics), social sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology, economics, politics), the arts (e.g., theater, music, art), languages, and mathematics. During the 19th century, higher education went
through an “identity crisis” unsure of what constituted the best education for an independent and developing society. The crisis led to calls for change in higher education. Appropriate curriculum for these colleges became widely debated in the early part of the nineteenth century. As science and technology became more prevalent and began to shape the world, American society called upon its colleges to provide coursework that suited the new era. In reply to these demands, Yale President Jeremiah Day organized a committee to address the aforementioned debates. The resultant document The Yale Report of 1828 called for ‘breadth in curriculum as the writers of the document doubted ‘whether the powers of the mind can be developed, in their fairest proportions, by studying languages alone, or mathematics alone, or natural or political science alone’ (p. 173). The document further states that ‘the course of instruction which is given to undergraduates in the college is not designed to include professional studies. Our object is not to teach what is peculiar to any one of the professions; but to lay the foundation which is common to them all’ (p.173). Since its publication, The Yale Report of 1828 has become the classic argument for a liberal education and liberal arts colleges in the United States.
What to expect from a Liberal Arts Education As you embark on your academic journey at Monmouth College we want to welcome you and lay out the expectations of this first course in your college career. The goals of ILA are to make you a consummate reader, an accomplished writer, and a keen thinker. Practically speaking, this means that you will need to spend time reading, thinking, and writing as you begin constructing the knowledge required to comprehend the world rationally, aesthetically, and holistically. On average, devoting fifteen hours each week outside of class to ILA should allow you the time needed to read critically; draft, edit, and revise papers; and think. Furthermore, we expect you will be able to: • Annotate the texts your read, citing specific passages to support in-class discussions and arguments; reflect on your reading experiences; and be able to analyze and accurately relate the content of your reading to others. • Listen to others and engage both critically and sympathetically with the substance of their argument or points. • Use writing as a tool to enhance and refine your ability to think about and through ideas. • Begin to see the connections between the arts, sciences, and humanities in your understanding and learning. College will be difficult but exhilarating if done with passion and serious intent. But that is what learning was meant to be.
Registar’s Office The Registrar provides many important academic services to the student body, including publishing the annual class schedule, issuing mid-term and final grades, allowing the ability to add or drop courses, handling transfer credits, coordinating the conferring of degrees, processing enrollment verifications and transcript requests, and much more. Students must register for courses online at the assigned times and assume responsibility for being properly enrolled in each class. Details of the registration process are made available to students in a timely manner by the Registrar’s office. New students select courses during SOAR, Summer Orientation Advisement and Registration, programs early in the summer. Continuing students register online in the fall and spring for subsequent semesters. The Monmouth College catalog, course schedules, academic calendars, and other important information are available online or in the Registrar’s Office on the second floor of Poling Hall.

Study Abroad Programs
At Monmouth College, the option to study abroad is easily accessible. Students can either choose to participate in a semester long program or can immerse themselves in one of our programs over winter, spring, or summer breaks. Programs offered through Monmouth College: University of Highlands and Islands: Scotland Being one of the more popular choices for those who want to study abroad, students from varying majors can choose to study at this location. Students can connect to Monmouthâ€™s rich heritage in Scotland by touring, attending classes at the university, and enjoying culture with their host families. Akita International University: Japan Even though Monmouth College does not offer a major in Japanese or Japanese culture does not mean that we do not have strong connections with Japan. This topranked university is a very unique option, for it offers a rich liberal arts education entirely in English. Students can experience Japan through living in dormitory style living or living with a host family, attending orientation for International Students in the beginning of the semester at Akita, or even touring Akita.

Students with questions about their financial aid during an off campus study semester should contact the Financial Aid Office. It is important to work with the MC Financial Aid Office to achieve the best possible financing for your off campus program. Some program-specific scholarships are available. Please check the website or materials provided by your specific program for these options. Application deadlines and scholarship requirements vary, so it is important to explore scholarship opportunities early.
Study Abroad Costs
The following general terms apply: • A $200 deposit is due to Monmouth College within one month after approval for off campus study. This deposit will be applied as a credit to the student account at the beginning of the off campus semester. The deposit will be refunded if the student is not accepted into the program. Once the student is accepted into an off campus program, the deposit is not refundable. • An additional deposit may be required to be paid directly to the off campus program. Please review the materials provided by the program for amount and payment details. • If there is an out of pocket balance due to Monmouth College for the off campus student semester, payment must be made or a payment plan in place two weeks prior to the first day of MC classes for the semester. This balance will be on the July invoice for fall semester or the December invoice for spring semester.
Students wishing to withdraw from off campus study after approval of their application must notify the Off Campus Study Office in writing. Program fees, housing fees and all other fees will be refunded in accordance with refunds made by the host institution. Any special travel arrangements or incidental costs due to a program cancellation will be at the student’s expense. Students who withdraw from both the off campus program and the College are subject to the above fees plus any
applicable MC charges.
Termination from the Program
Prior to departure, if a student is terminated from the program by Monmouth College as a result of disciplinary or behavioral problems, fees will be assessed as necessary and will vary depending on the program and date of termination. After the program has begun, no refunds will be made to students who are terminated from the program as a result of disciplinary or behavioral problems.
Students should be aware that participation in an off campus program involves certain elements of risk which are beyond the control of the program staff or Monmouth College. Students who have been granted Monmouth College permission for off campus study will not be allowed to begin a study-abroad program in a country for which a “Travel Warning” has been issued by the U.S. Department of State. Should such a warning come into effect prior to the beginning of a program, students will need to work with the Off Campus Study Office to make alternative plans for their approved off campus program. In cases where a “Travel Warning” is issued while a program is in progress, a decision to withdraw students from the county may be made based on advice of the U.S. Department of State. Monmouth College may require a student to return from an off campus program at any time, regardless of whether its sponsor or host institution has officially cancelled the program.

Residence Life Poling Hall, First floor 309-457-2113
Residence Life Academic Success
National studies indicate that students who live on campus are less likely to drop out, have more contact with faculty members and other students, and are more satisfied with their college experience.
Meeting new people is one of the best things about living in residence halls. Some of these people are likely to become life-long friends and may be even partners!
Walk to class, the library, athletic events, concerts and other campus events. In addition many convenient services like laundry rooms, vending machines, cable and computer connections, Wi Fi, DVDs, pool tables, ping pong tables, vacuum cleaners, small kitchens, microwaves, study lounges, and formal lounges are available in the residence halls.
Residence halls are managed by friendly staff including Head Residents and Resident Assistants. All staff members are available to assist students in meeting their academic and personal goals. Each residence hall also has a full-time custodian who cleans common areas, corridors, recreational areas and bathrooms (you will need to clean your own room). All maintenance problems are promptly addressed by the Monmouth College maintenance staff.
Each student, as a member of the hall community, assumes responsibility for his or her actions. The residence hall community is governed by an elected Hall Council that sponsors educational, social, and recreational activities, and works toward making living in the halls personally satisfying for all residents. Also, Hall Councils are a great way to get involved in a student organization and develop leadership skills!

Visitation hours during the week are established so that guests of the opposite gender may visit their friends in student rooms. A studentâ€™s right to study/privacy supersedes a roommateâ€™s right to host a guest. Visitation hours are established by the hall councils and residence life staff members and are specific to each hall. Visitation for out of town guests is permitted for a span of 48 hours. Students do not need to check their guests in. However, if a Resident Assistant or Head Resident notices a guest over staying their welcome, standard procedures will ensue. Visitation is most common on weekends, since it is free parking for guests and falls into the 48 hour regulation mentioned above. * Please note cohabitation is not permitted.

Monmouth College is an active, vibrant community, with a number of opportunities for students who wish to be involved in activities outside the classroom. For a student to get the most out of his or her college experience, he or she needs to be aware of what is available, keep an open mind, and learn to budget time. Currently, the college has many active organizations including honor societies, service groups, fine arts ensembles and troupes, student publications and communications, men’s and women’s fraternities (Greek-letter organizations), intramural and varsity athletics, and special interest groups. Each of these groups is continually seeking new members. The best way for a new student to become introduced to these groups is to attend the Involvement Fair during new student orientation, and to contact student organizations directly. There are student-led organizations and activities to suit every student’s interests: The College newspaper and other publications, the campus radio station, religious services, music groups (classical, instrumental, and a capella) and the theater department provides opportunities for students to develop their talents and to enrich the college’s life. Many members of the college find challenge and learning opportunities in the athletic
programs, both intramural and intercollegiate. A prominent focus of campus interest is the student government, which is responsible for a broad range of activities. The Association for Student Activity Programming is the main activity programming board on campus. All students can become members of the board and have a hand in planning campus events. In all of these activities there are opportunities for learning, for leadership and for interaction with faculty members. A student’s development of his or her leadership abilities and strengths starts with self-motivation and introspection. As students examine their own strengths and weaknesses, the values they hold, and their interests, they begin to understand themselves and how to leverage and develop their talents. Leadership development is a never-ending process, with success found only through perseverance and a persistent dedication to learning. Student’s best practice these skills at Monmouth College by becoming involved in campus life.
