AMERICAN STUDIES PROGRAM The American Studies Program is sponsored by the Christian College Coalition ofwhich Biola University is a member. This semester-long program is based inWashing­ ton D.C. and provides study/internship opportunities for junior or senior level students in most of the majors. For additional information see the Political Science section, or make inquiry through the Department of Political Science. LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES PROGRAM The Latin American Studies Program is sponsored by the Christian College Coalition of which Biola University is a member. This program provides students the oppor­ tunity to live, study and work for four months in Central America, most of which is spent in Costa Rica. Students spend the initial six-weeks in intense language study. This is followed with two three-week seminars on the problems of Central America and social and economic development issues. The final month is spent in travel through Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, safety permitting. For additional information and application see Dr. David Dickson, or make inquiry through the Department of Foreign Languages. OTHER STUDY TOURS There are other opportunities for travel each summer and occasionally at other times during the year. Tours are directed by those with experience in travel and are offered at a nominal price. Although these tours are not limited to Biola University students, it is expected that those joining a tour will be in basic agreement with the Christian viewpoint and the standards of conduct held by Biola University. In addition, it is expected that the indi­ vidual's health will be strong enough to stand the demanding rigors of travel. For information write to the Office of Admissions and Records. SUMMER SESSION A continuing Summer Session program provides stu­ dents with the opportunity for a greater degree of flexibili­ ty in planning their total program. Students may enrich their course of study and reduce the overall time spent in school or decrease their regular course load by careful selection of Summer Session courses. Visiting students find it refreshing to study in a different atmosphere and perhaps a different locale and entering students find it helpful in gaining advanced standing. Work taken may be applied to both the degree and the teaching credential programs. Instruction is offered in standard courses by the Biola faculty and capable visiting professors. Courses offered cover the areas of art, Bible, theolo­ gy, Greek, history, literature, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, biological science, sociology and other subjects, including education courses for teaching credential candidates. Graduate courses in theology and psychology enable graduate students to continue

their programs during the summer. Credit is also avail­ able in connection with excellent foreign tours conduct­ ed during the summer. Tuition, room and board are lower than regular charges at private colleges; total costs are competitive with state summer school charges. See section on financial information for Summer Session tuition. Certain courses or workshops may be offered in the summer that are not listed in this bulletin. Courses may be innovative or the content may be in response to specialized needs or current topics. Such courses will be described in the separate summer session bulletin. Requests for the Summer Session (available about February 15) and application forms for admission should be addressed to the Office of Admissions and Records. Admission to the summer program does not presuppose or grant acceptance to the University for the regular school year. INTERTERM To facilitate the completion of graduation and also to allow exposure to creative learning and to enrich students' academic programs, the University provides an Interterm program in January. Resident hall rooms are provided at no extra charge for on-campus fall students who occupy a room during the spring semester. All other students attending Interterm are charged a prorated weekly rate. Separate prices will be available for meals during Interterm. Tuition charges are about one half of the regular school year charge. (Graduate psychology courses excepted.) A balanced program of general education, Bible, elective and graduate courses is offered on campus. Opportunities also will be given to participate in travel and other non-traditional courses. Class schedules for Interterm will be available April 1. For further informa­ tion, please write to the director of Interterm. ARMY ROTC The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program is available to all qualified students of Biola University through the Military Science Department of UCIA Army ROTC trains students to be commissioned officers in the US Army, the US Army Reserve, or the National Guard. This training includes an in-depth study of the military establishment, military history, tactics, leader­ ship principles, management and many other basic skills necessary to build motivated, effective leaders. Programs The military science curriculum is divided into two parts. Basic Course is the first two years of lower division study during which students complete 12 units of leader­ ship classes.
