ENGLAND SEMESTER Biola, in cooperation with the University of Sheffield, offers the opportunity for a fall term of study in the United Kingdom. App lication and payment of tuition and room and board are made through Biola. The applicant must be a junior or senior student with a 3.0 GPA and must be approved by the department of the student's major, the coor dinator of the program, and the University of Sheffield. Students who are accepted live in Sheffield university housing and take 3 or 4 courses in the regular university cur riculum. One of the courses will be taught by a faculty mem ber designated by Biola and will be designed for the Biola stu dents but may be open to other Sheffield students also. Those students majoring in biblical studies, English, and history will find programs which are most relevant to Biola's needs; how ever, courses could also be taken in archaeology, chemistry, language and linguistics, economics, mathematics, music, psy chology, sociology, and advanced language. Because of the nature of British higher education, students are expected to take their courses in no more than one or two departments. The program gives the student the opportunity to experi ence the British lecture and tutorial system first-hand, as well as enjoy the unique historical and cultural environment of the British Isles. Student are given an orientation at the Uni versity of Sheffield before starting their term of study. The faculty member designated by Biola to teach the Biola course will mentor the students while at Sheffield, providing counse l and guidance throughout the term. The students who participate in the program are expected to abide by the rules and regulations of the Univer sity of Sheffield; in addition, they are expected to maintain Biola's code of conduct as they would on the La Mirada cam pus. At the end of the term the University of Sheffield will forward the student's transcript to Biola where it will be interpreted in light of our American grading system. Anyone wishing additional information should apply to the Coordinator of the University of Sheffield Year Abroad Program in the English Department. OTHER STUDY TOURS Along with these regularly scheduled programs, there are often other opportunities for study and travel.

SUMMER SESSION Acontinuing Summer Session program provides students with the opportunity for a greater degree of flexibility in plan ning their total program.

Work taken may be applied to both the degree and the teach ing credential programs. Instruction is offered in standard courses by the Biola faculty and capable visiting professors. Courses offered cover the areas of art, Bible, theology, history, literature, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, bio logical science, sociology and other subjects, including edu cation courses for teaching credential candidates. Graduate courses in theology and psychology enable graduate students to continue their programs during the summer. Credit is also available in connection with excellent foreign tours con ducted during the summer. Tuition, room and board are lower than regular charges at private colleges; total costs are competitive with state summer school charges.
