Scholar Program (SCHOL)

Associate Professor: Chandler (Director)

The Lycoming College Scholar Program is a special program designed to meet the needs and aspirations of highly motivated students of superior intellectual ability. Lycoming scholars satisfy the College’s distribution requirements with more challenging courses than students not in the Scholar Program are required to complete. (Substitutions to the Scholar Distribution Requirements can be made only by successful application to the Scholar’s Council.) Lycoming Scholars also participate in special interdisciplinary seminars and in an independent study culminating in a senior presentation.

Team taught interdisciplinary seminar held each semester under the direction of the Lycoming Scholar Council. May be repeated for credit. Completion of five semesters is required by the Scholar Program. Prerequisite: Acceptance into the Lycoming Scholar Program. One-quarter unit of credit. Grade will be recorded as “A” or “F.”

During the senior year, Lycoming Scholars complete independent studies or departmental honors projects. These projects are presented to scholars and faculty in the senior seminar. Non-credit course. Prerequisite: Acceptance into the Lycoming Scholar Program.
