An Unusual History

In its 150 year history, the University has passed through three distinct phases. Begun by Methodists in 1859 as an institution pioneering in coeducation, the Valparaiso Male and Female College was forced by the reverses of the Civil War to close its doors in 1871. It was revived in 1873 by an enterprising educator, Henry Baker Brown, as the Northern Indiana Normal School. “Mr. Brown’s School,” a flourishing private, proprietary institution, was renamed Valparaiso College in 1900 and rechartered as Valparaiso University in 1907. During the next twenty years, it won national recognition as a low-cost, no-frills institution of higher learning which served thousands of students who might not otherwise have been able to afford a good education. Many alumni from this period achieved distinction in their fields as governors, legislators, scientists, business leaders, and other professionals. However, after World War I the University went into decline and bankruptcy; then, in 1925, The Lutheran University Association purchased it, beginning the modern phase of the University’s history. The association, an Indiana corporation composed of men and women, the majority of whom are affiliated with Lutheran congregations, is a national organization whose members represent the principal regions of the United States.

The Goals of Education at Valparaiso University

While appreciating the importance of preparing students for useful careers, Valparaiso University holds to the ideal that its students want an education that treats them first as human beings rather than simply as future wage earners. These students want to think clearly, to analyze facts and ideas, draw sound conclusions from their reasoning, and express themselves clearly and creatively. They want to understand their cultural and religious heritage, developing a sensitivity to the culture and the viewpoints of others, while finding for themselves firm values and standards by which to live and make judgments. They want to become humane and responsible citizens in an ever-changing society and to participate effectively in their institutions and communities.

There is no simple formula for acquiring these abilities. Every degree program at Valparaiso University aims to assist students in attaining these goals by offering a course of studies in general education, which provides students with a broad base of knowledge and abilities, as well as in a particular area that leads to the mastery of concepts and tools of a  single field of study. Both components, general education and the major field of studies, develop abilities in the student that go far beyond mere career preparation and provide intellectual enrichment for a lifetime.

University-Wide Student Learning Objectives

Through the following student learning objectives, Valparaiso University affirms its mission-based commitment to educating responsible global citizens who are ready to lead and serve church and society. These objectives are designed to help colleges and departments clearly link their student learning objectives to those of the University. All academic units will indicate how the learning outcomes of their curriculum and of individual courses within that curriculum link to some, or all, of the University-wide student learning objectives. The objectives are designed to include the cognitive, skill, and value domains of learning.

Students will:

  1. Demonstrate theoretical and practical knowledge as well as the intellectual skills and creative capacities pertinent to their respective fields of study.
  2. Solve both conceptual and applied problems by integrating broad-based knowledge, evidence-based reasoning, and informational literacy.
  3. Practice experiential, interdisciplinary, and collaborative learning in both academic and co-curricular pursuits.
  4. Communicate effectively in oral, written, and digital forms in increasingly complex contexts.
  5. Engage in cross-cultural dialogue and experiences with the requisite knowledge to succeed in a diverse, global community.
  6. Develop character, integrity, and wisdom as they discern their vocations and prepare to ethically lead and serve church and society.

The Freshman Year

Even though they may express clear-cut decisions, college freshmen are often uncertain about their long-range career goals. The University fosters this openness by encouraging them to discover new interests while cultivating their current ones. All students, with the help of their academic advisors, design a program that allows them first to explore various areas of interest and, in due time, to develop a plan of study focusing on a major area of interest.

The Valpo Core Program

The Valparaiso Core Program consists of a two-semester sequence of CORE 110  and CORE 115 , each a four-credit-hour course. Core is required of all first-year students not enrolled in the Christ College Freshman Program. The primary subject of this interdisciplinary course is the human experience as great thinkers, writers, and artists have represented it. The primary object of the course is to welcome and initiate new students into this University community and academic life generally, by putting them in dialogue with great teachers and texts, and of course, with each other, to explore together some of the most essential aspects of human community, past, present, and future. Classroom discussion in Core is enhanced by co-curricular programming beyond the classroom that engages students in numerous campus-wide opportunities for exploring and reflecting on our semester themes of empathy, dialogue, and justice.

Core is interdisciplinary because knowledge is interdisciplinary, and in the global community in which we now live, knowledge depends increasingly on people able to make connections across disciplines, across cultures, across oceans, across town. To prepare our students to succeed in this world and live meaningful lives of leadership and service, we recognize the need to introduce them to cultures and traditions other than their own. The reading list is multicultural and international because the world is multicultural and international. At the same time, we recognize the need to help students discover where they come from and where they are. Beginning with an understanding of the contexts in which we find ourselves, we can- in the best spirit of Lutheran higher education- create dialogue among texts and traditions, helping our students grow in their understanding of how the past speaks to the present, how the sacred informs the secular.

First-year students need special skills to enter fully into this dialogue and become successful students in the fullest sense. The Valpo Core Program is designed to help students develop those skills necessary for them to thrive in their studies- skills in close reading and critical thinking, in speaking, and especially in writing. While CORE 110  focuses on context and analysis, CORE 115  emphasizes argument and research, and great opportunities exist in both semesters of Core for students to enhance their information literacy and become more adept at retrieving, evaluating, and managing digital resources.

Because of the interdisciplinary nature of Core, other institutions may apply the following transfer credits to their own general education requirements: CORE 110  and CORE 115  together may be distributed as 3 credits of English composition, 3 credits of world literature/history, and 2 credits of philosophy/theology. Taken separately, CORE 110  or CORE 115  may be distributed as 3 credits of English composition/world literature and 1 credit of philosophy/theology.

Off-Campus Study Programs in the United States

The Lutheran College Washington Consortium

Valparaiso University is a member of the Lutheran College Washington Consortium, sponsored by a group of thirteen Lutheran colleges and universities. Valpo juniors and seniors can study in the fall, spring, or summer in Washington, DC at the Lutheran College Washington Semester. In the fall and spring, students participate in a four-day per week internship and take two LCWS classes. LCWS will help students find an internship, and students earn 15 credit hours for the semester. The program can accommodate almost any major. LCWS students have interned in almost every field - from agriculture to zoology (and everything in between). Valpo LCWS students have interned at the White House, State Department, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, CNN, Sirius XM Radio, the US Marshals Service, the DNC & RNC, as well as think tanks, advocacy groups, and faith-based organizations.

Students register at Valparaiso University for the Washington Consortium Semester and pay to this University the tuition and fees. Expenses for travel and meals are paid directly by the students. The Washington Consortium Semester courses are accepted for full credit toward graduation from Valparaiso University.

More information on the Washington Consortium Semester is available online.

Cooperative Education Program

Cooperative education is an academic program that combines professional work experience with academic coursework. Paid employment occurs in business, industry, government, or other professional settings. The Cooperative Education experience is available in the College of Arts and Sciences , College of Business , College of Engineering , and College of Nursing and Health Professions .

All students in good standing who meet the grade point minimum declared by the particular college may participate in the program. Students may enroll in full-time (called alternating) or part-time (called parallel) programs, except in the College of Engineering where only the alternating program is available. Academic credit for Cooperative Education is granted by the college or participating department in which the student is enrolled. The number of co-op credits counted toward a major or a degree varies by college or department. Students should consult with faculty co-op coordinators to determine how co-op credits may apply to majors and/or degree requirements.

The Cooperative Education Program enriches the total education of students by providing the opportunity to increase their sense of responsibility, judgment, and self-confidence through off-campus experiences that are closely integrated with their academic studies.

Students are considered to be continuing full-time students of the University while on co-op assignment.

Other Academic Opportunities

Internships

A number of internship opportunities have been established in several departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, in the College of Business, and in the College of Engineering. Some of these are optional, others are required. These internships allow students to learn by direct experience under the supervision of a professional. Further information is given in departmental descriptions.

Service Learning

Service learning is a credit-based educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs. Students reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain a further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility. Service learning provides an additional means for reaching educational objectives, and academic credit is appropriate for service activities when learning objectives associated with the service are identified and evaluated.

Unlike extracurricular voluntary service, service learning is a course-based service experience that produces the best outcomes when meaningful service activities are related to course material through reflection activities such as writing and small group discussions. Unlike practica and internships, the experiential activity in a service learning course is not necessarily skill-based within the context of professional education.

Guidelines for courses with a service learning component are as follows:

  1. Courses should contain the equivalent of one to two hours per week of the service learning component.
  2. A reasonable variety of service agency placements should be provided for each course.
  3. Any given course may contain a service learning component; these courses will be designated as such in the current course schedule.
  4. Students may be required to use their personal vehicles for travel to off-campus service sites. If off-campus work is required, students will sign a liability waiver.

Honors Work and Independent Study

The University encourages honors work and independent study. Each college has its own approach to this form of instruction. Information should be sought from deans or department chairs. Especially interesting is an opportunity for a group of students to develop a topic or area of study to be approached as a group under the sponsorship of a faculty member. This independent group study program is administered through the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences but is open to all students. More detailed information is given on the College of Arts and Sciences  page.

Christ College

This college is itself one of the unique educational opportunities available to all students of the University. It is an honors college that offers an interdisciplinary honors curriculum that seeks to address questions that cannot be answered through a single discipline. The college has a core community of students who follow a special course of studies in the area of general education but welcomes all students to inquire into its programs and to participate in it. Details are given on the Christ College - The Honors College  page.

Summer Sessions

The summer program serves a variety of undergraduate and graduate students. Regularly enrolled Valparaiso University students use the Summer Sessions to assist in completing additional majors or minors, distribute their academic load, accelerate their studies, or take maximum advantage of educational opportunities. Visiting students from other accredited institutions take courses for transfer to their home institution.

Newly admitted students (freshmen, transfers, and graduates) may begin their work during the summer. Selected high school students may take courses to facilitate their educational objectives.

The University offers one twelve-week and two six-week sessions. Although most courses are six weeks, within each six-week term usually a number of specialized courses are offered in shorter periods of time. The first of the two six-week terms begins immediately after May Commencement. Students may earn up to seven credits in each six-week session and a total of 14 for the summer, the equivalent of a semester’s work.

Within each six-week term, a number of shorter courses with special pedagogical requirements are offered. Typically, these last two or four weeks and usually involve field trips, field study (including international travel), and immersion experiences that use films, videos, or laboratories. Students normally may not take any other courses while taking a short course.

The Graduate Student Early Entry Program

Through the Graduate Student Early Entry Program, undergraduates with junior standing and a GPA of at least 3.000 may apply for provisional admission to an eligible graduate degree program. If accepted, the student may take courses from the graduate catalog up to a maximum number of credits established by the graduate program, generally during the senior year, and apply them to his or her undergraduate degree. These credits may be used as undergraduate electives or to complete a specific undergraduate program of study. In the latter case, the specific substitution of a graduate course for an undergraduate course is given in the description of the undergraduate program. During the senior year, the student will work with both an undergraduate advisor and a graduate program advisor to coordinate the course articulations.

Pending final acceptance to the graduate program in the student’s senior year, after the student matriculates to the Valparaiso University graduate program, graduate credits earned while an undergraduate may be used in partial fulfillment of graduate degree program requirements. This reduces the cost and time required to earn a graduate degree. In some cases, two different degrees that would normally take 4+2 years to complete, if planned correctly, may be completed in 4+1 years. The graduate program specifies the limits on the number of graduate credits that may be applied to an undergraduate degree, but generally no more than half of the credits for a graduate program may be applied to both programs. All undergraduate students interested in the Early Entry program should apply during their junior year. See the GRADUATE CATALOG for details.

Early Entry is different from two other accelerated programs where graduate coursework does not count for undergraduate study. In the first case, there are accelerated paired programs (3+2), in which the student completes the bachelor’s degree in three years and then enters the two year master’s degree after passing a series of checkpoints specified by the graduate program. In the second case, under the Graduate Student Early Admission program, a senior with nine or fewer hours remaining in the final semester may be provisionally admitted to a graduate program and may take up to twelve total semester hours of undergraduate and graduate courses combined. See the GRADUATE CATALOG for details.

Special Course, Program, and Activities Requirements

Some University courses, programs, or activities require students to travel to locations off campus. When the University does not provide the transportation, or when it does and the student elects not to use it, the student is solely responsible for making his or her own safe and responsible travel plans.

Some University courses, programs, or activities also involve internship, practica, student teaching, and the like with third parties outside of the University. Some of these third parties, such as school districts or private sector employers, may require criminal or similar background checks of the students. Each student must comply with these requests if he or she is to participate in the course, program, or activity.
