History Pacific Lutheran University was founded in 1 890 by a group of most ly N o rwegi an Lutherans from the Puget Sound are;L They were led by the R verend Bjug H a rst ad , who became PLU's first president. [n n am i ng the university, these p ioneers recog ni zed the important role that a Lutheran educational institution on th." Western frontier of A me r i c a could play in the emerging future of the region. They wanted [he instirution to help imm i gr a n ts adj u s t to their new land and find jobs, but they also wanted it to produce g rad u ates who would serve churcb and community. Education-and educating Fo r s erv ic ('-- was a ve ne ra t ed part o f the Scandinavian traditions from which these p ioneers came. Although founded as a university, the institution fUllcrioned pri­ marily as an academy until [ 9 1 8, when it dosed for two years. It

PlU 2006 - 2007


reopened as the rwo-year Pacific Lutheran College, after merging with Columbia College, previously located in Evererr. Further consolidations occurred when Spokane College merged with PLC in 1 929. Four-year baccalaureate degrees were first offered in education in 1 939 and in the l iberal arts in 1 942. The institution was reorganized as a university in 1 960, reclaiming its original name. It presently includes a College of Am and Sciences; pro­ fessional schools of the Arts and Communication, Business, Education, Nursing, and Physical Education; and both graduate and continuing education programs. I'LU has been closely and productively affiliated with the Lutheran church throughout its histoty. It is now a university of the Evangelical Lutheran Church i n America (ELCA), owned by the more than six hundred congregations of Region I of the ELCA.

line 1 . The F i rst-Year Experience

The Examined Life: /11/0 Uru:ertainty alld Beyond The firsr-year program provide:; a supportively challenging context in which ro begin the quest for, and adventure of, a larger vision for life. University education is about more th,li1 skills; at PLU it is about lib­ erating students for critical and committed living. combining well developed critical capacities with compassion and vision for service in a multiculrural, ideologically plural world. In addition to orientation and advising programs, the first-year pro­ gram is composed of three requirements. One of rhe [Wo seminars must be taken in the student's [irst semester. First-year program requirements mu,t be completed during the srudent's Ilrst year. This requirement must be met by all students entering PLU with fewer than 20 Semester hours.


Inquiry Seminar: Writing

(four semester hours) - FW, WR

These semil1Jts focus on writing, thinking, speaking, and reading. They i nvolve writing as a way of thinking, of learn­ ing, and of discO\'ering and ordering ideas. Taught by facul­ ty froni the university's various departments and schools, these seminars are organized around ropics that engage stu­ dents and faculty in dialogue and provide the opportunity ro examine issues fro m a variety of perspectives.

Note: Credits earned by Advanced Placement-English and

International Baccalaureate-English do not satisfY this requirement, though they may be used for eleCtive credit. Students with officially transcripted college wriring courses, including those in \\fashington State's Running Starr pro­ gram, are eligible to enroll in the writing seminar for credit, or they may choose to use thei r previous credits to satisfY this requirement.

ENGINEERING MAJORS Students majoring in computer science may choose to earn either a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science or a Bachelor of Science degree in either Computer Science or Computer Engineering. The Bachelor of ArtS program is the minimum preparation suitable for further professional srudy and is o ften combined with extensive study or a second major in an allied field. The Bachelor of Science degrees are strong, scientific degrees that contain additional courses i n computer science, mathematics, and
