Welcome to the 2021-2022 Millsaps College Catalog
Millsaps College Mission Statement
Millsaps College is dedicated to academic excellence, open inquiry and free expression, the exploration of faith to inform vocation and the innovative shaping of the social, economic and cultural progress of our region.
Millsaps College Vision Statement
Building on its motto, Ad Excellentiam, its strong heritage of social justice, freedom of thought, and reflection on life’s most important questions, and its central location in the capital city of Mississippi, Millsaps engages students in a transformative learning and leadership experience that results in personal and intellectual growth, commitment to good citizenship in our global society, and a desire to succeed and make a difference in every community they touch.
Millsaps College celebrates it connection with The United Methodist Church. The college embodies the spirit of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist tradition, in its emphasis on scholarly inquiry, academic freedom and spiritual growth. Millsaps welcomes people from all religious traditions or no religious tradition, and is committed to equipping all people for a meaningful life of service to others.
At Millsaps, academic advisors are mentors to their students, helping them understand the value of academic planning not only as a means of fulfilling degree requirements, but also in the context of setting personal, professional and intellectual goals and bringing them to fruition. Academic planning is a natural part of the liberal arts education, empowering and enabling students to take responsibility for shaping their own lives.
