Graduate School


Mission
Graduate education is an integral component of a major
research university that impacts education at all levels. The
mission of graduate education at the University of Florida is
to produce individuals with advanced knowledge in their
fields, who appreciate learning and are constant learners, and
who are prepared to address creatively issues of significance to
the local and global community for improving the quality of
life. Essential to this mission is an environment that fosters
*effective transmission of knowledge for future generations.
*inquiry and critical analysis.
*acquisition of skills contributing to success and leadership in
academic and creative arenas and in the world of practice.
*application of that knowledge in service to Florida, the
nation, and the international community.

Vision
The vision is a university internationally recognized for its
graduates, Graduate Faculty, and scholarly achievements.
This university produces intellectually energized individuals
who excel at future careers in diverse settings, and who can
provide bold leadership in new directions. Important signs
of this recognition include
*graduates recognized for strength of preparation in their
chosen discipline, for abilities to solve problems in new
environments, and for high standards of excellence in
scholarly activity and professional practice.
*significant scholarly, creative achievements and service that
contribute to improvement of human society and the natu-
ral environment.
*a highly qualified, diverse student population.
*strong disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs that pre-
pare graduates to assume their roles in a changing world.
*evidence of service in their disciplines by students and fac-
ulty at state, national, and international levels.

Organization
The Graduate School consists of the Dean, who is also
Vice President for Research; Associate Dean; Assistant Dean;
the Graduate Council; and the Graduate Faculty. General
policies and standards of the Graduate School are established
by the Graduate Faculty. Any policy change must be
approved by the graduate deans and the Graduate Council.
The Graduate School is responsible for the enforcement of
minimum general standards of graduate work in the
University and for the coordination of the graduate pro-
grams of the various colleges and divisions of the University.
The responsibility for the detailed operations of graduate
programs is vested in the individual colleges, schools, divi-
sions, and academic units. In most of the colleges an assis-
tant dean or other administrator is directly responsible for
graduate study in that college.
The Graduate Council assists the Dean in being the agent
of the Graduate Faculty for execution of policy related to
graduate study and associated research. The Council, which


is chaired by the graduate dean, considers petitions and pol-
icy changes. Members of the Graduate Faculty are appoint-
ed by the academic unit in which the graduate program is
located with the approval of the graduate dean.
No faculty member may serve on supervisory committees
or direct master's theses and doctoral dissertations without
having been appointed to the Graduate Faculty. The level of
duties for each Graduate Faculty member is determined by
the academic unit.

History
Graduate study at the University of Florida existed while
the University was still on its Lake City campus. However,
the first graduate degrees, two Master of Arts with a major
in English, were awarded on the Gainesville campus in
1906. The first Master of Science was awarded in 1908,
with a major in entomology. The first programs leading to
the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930, and the first degrees were
awarded in 1934, one with a major in chemistry and the
other with a major in pharmacy. The first Ed.D. was award-
ed in 1948. Graduate study has had a phenomenal growth
at the University of Florida. In 1930, 33 degrees were

awarded in 12 fields. In 1940, 66 degrees were awarded in
16 fields. In 2002-03, the total number of graduate degrees
awarded was 3,422 in more than 100 fields. The proportion
of Ph.D. degrees, after the initial rapid growth, remained
relatively static during the early 1980s but increased signifi-
cantly between 1987-88 and 1993-94, growing from 304 to
424. In 2002-03, the University of Florida awarded 468
Ph.D. degrees.

Definitions
Academic Degree-Degree is the title to be conferred by
the University upon completion of the academic program,
for example, Doctor of Philosophy. Some degrees include
the name of the field of study (Master of Architecture,
Master of Education). Others (Master of Arts, Master of
Science) do not. Degree names are listed in boldface.
Graduate Program-The program is the primary field of
study of a graduate student. This is the student's major.
Programs offered at the University of Florida are approved
by the Graduate Council, Faculty Senate, Board of Trustees
and Florida Board of Governors (specialist and doctoral
degrees). The program name along with the degree appears
on the student's transcript. Programs are enumerated under
the degree name in the list of graduate degrees and programs.
Concentration-At the graduate level, the concentration
is a subprogram offered within a graduate major. Each con-
centration is approved by the Graduate Council. The con-
centration, as well as the degree and program, may appear
on the student transcript. Concentrations are listed in ital-
ics below their corresponding programs.
Minor-A minor is a block of course work completed in
any academic unit, other than the major academic unit,
approved for master's or doctoral programs as listed in this
catalog. If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee






GENERAL INFORMATION


I-


must include a representative from the minor field. The
minimum amount of credit required for a minor varies from
6 to 15 credits according to the program. The minor appears
on the student's transcript along with the program name and
the degree awarded.
Specialization-Specialization is an informal designation
used by academic units to indicate areas of research or schol-
arly strength, and has no formal significance. Track and
emphasis are similar unofficial terms. No tracks, emphases,
or specializations appear in official lists in this catalog or on
the student transcript.
Graduate Certificate-An academic unit may offer a
graduate certificate along with a graduate degree. The cer-
tificate indicates that the student took a required number of
courses in a special area. It requires Graduate Council
approval but is not listed on the student transcript.
Multi-College Programs-When one degree program is
offered through more than one college, it is referred to as a
multi-college program.
Combined Degree Program-This is a combined bache-
lor's and master's degree program of study which allows an
undergraduate student to take graduate-level courses prior to
completion of the bachelor's degree and to count 12 gradu-
ate credits toward both degrees. Students admitted into a
combined program normally have at least a 3.2 grade point
average and a score of at least 1100 on the verbal and quan-
titative portions of the GRE. Academic units may establish
higher admission standards. Individual academic units will
determine whether or not a combined degree program is
appropriate. Combined degree programs established prior to
January 1, 2003, may have other requirements.
Cooperative Degree Program-A course of study leading
to a graduate degree with more than one institution author-
ized to provide course work.
Catalog Year-The set of academic requirements a student
must fulfill is based on the rules in force in the academic year
of initial enrollment in a degree seeking status or, if the stu-
dent takes time off, the academic year of readmission. This
is known as the catalog year.
Joint Degree Program-A course of study, pursued simul-
taneously, leading to a graduate degree and a professional
degree is called a joint degree program. Normally 12 credits
of professional courses are counted toward the graduate
degree and 12 credits of graduate courses are counted toward
the professional degree. Individual academic units will
determine whether or not a joint degree program is appro-
priate. Joint programs established prior to January 1, 2003,
may have other requirements.
Concurrent Degree Program-Simultaneous study on an
individualized basis leading to two master's degrees in two
graduate programs or two master's degrees in the same major is
called a concurrent degree program. Such a program is initiat-
ed by the student and requires prior approval of each academ-
ic unit and the Graduate School. If the student is approved to
pursue two master's degrees, no more than 9 credits of course
work from one degree program may be applied toward meet-
ing the requirements for the second master's degree.
Co-Major-A course of study allowing two major pro-
grams for one Ph.D. degree. The program must be approved
by the Graduate Council.

Nontraditional Programs


Concurrent Graduate Programs
A graduate student who wishes to pursue two master's
degrees in two different programs or two master's degrees
within the same program concurrently must have the writ-
ten approval of the representative of each academic unit
involved and the Dean of the Graduate School. Any student
interested in pursuing concurrent degrees should discuss the
proposed study with the Graduate School's Student Records
staff prior to applying for the programs. If the request is
approved, the student must be officially admitted to both
programs through regular procedures. If the student is
approved to pursue two master's programs, no more than
nine credits of course work from one degree program may be
applied toward meeting the requirements for the second
master's degree. These nine credits must be by petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School.

Joint Degree Programs
A course of study leading to a graduate degree and a pro-
fessional degree is called a joint degree program. Normally
12 credits of professional courses are counted toward the
graduate degree and 12 credits of graduate courses are count-
ed toward the professional degree. Individual academic units
will determine whether a joint degree program is appropri-
ate. Joint programs established prior to January 1, 2003,
may have other requirements.
Any graduate student wishing to participate in a joint pro-
gram must be admitted to both programs. Enrollment in one
program may precede enrollment in the other according to
timelines set by the program. A minimum of three credits reg-
istration in fall or spring or two credits in summer is required
in the term in which a student intends to graduate. This
course work must be credit that will apply toward the gradu-
ate degree requirements. See graduate coordinator for details.

Combined Bachelor's/Master's
Degree Programs
The University of Florida offers a number of bache-
lor's/master's programs for superior students in which 12
credits of graduate-level courses are counted for both
degrees. Courses that dual count must satisfy the require-
ments listed under the Transfer of Credit section of this cat-
alog. Interested students should consult with their graduate
coordinators about the availability of programs in that area
and admissions requirements.


State University System Programs
Traveling Scholar Program-A traveling scholar is a
graduate student who, by mutual agreement of the appro-
priate academic authorities in both the sponsoring and host-
ing institutions, receives a waiver of admission requirements
and a guarantee of acceptance of earned resident credits by
the sponsoring institutions. The program will enable a grad-
uate student to take advantage of the special resources avail-
able on another campus but not available on his/her own
campus. The student must obtain prior approval by the
graduate coordinator from the supervisory committee chair
and the Dean of the Graduate School. Traveling scholars are
normally limited to one term on the campus of the host uni-
versity. Participation cannot be scheduled for the final term.
Interested students should contact the Graduate Student
Records Office, 106 Grinter Hall.
Cooperative Degree Programs-In certain degree pro-
grams, faculty from other universities in the State University
System hold Graduate Faculty status at the University of
Florida. In those approved areas, the intellectual resources of
these Graduate Faculty members are available to students at
the University of Florida.

Interdisciplinary Graduate
Certificates and Concentrations
A number of graduate programs offer interdisciplinary
enhancements in the form of concentrations, field research,
or graduate certificates. Those approved by the Graduate
Council are summarized on the following pages.

African Studies
The Center for African Studies, a National Resource
Center on Africa, funded, in part, under Title VI of the
Higher Education Act, directs and coordinates interdiscipli-
nary instruction, research, and outreach related to Africa. In
cooperation with participating academic units throughout
the University, the Center offers a Certificate in African
Studies at both the master's and doctoral levels. The cur-
riculum provides a broad foundation for students preparing
for teaching or other professional careers in which a knowl-
edge of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships-Students
admitted to the Graduate School in pursuit of degrees
offered by participating academic units are eligible to com-
pete for graduate assistantships and Title VI Foreign
Language and Area Studies fellowships.
Extracurricular Activities-The Center sponsors the
annual Carter Lectures on Africa on a given theme, a weekly
colloquium series-BARAZA-with invited speakers, an
African film series, and periodic brownbag discussions.
Other conferences and lectures, as well as performances and
art exhibits in conjunction with other campus units, are held
throughout the academic year. The Center also directs an
extensive outreach program addressed to public schools,
community colleges, and universities nationwide.
Library Resources-The Center for African Studies pro-
vides direct support for African library acquisitions to meet

the instructional and research needs of its faculty and stu-
dents. The Africana Collection numbers over 80,000 vol-
umes. The Map Library contains 360,000 maps and
165,000 serial photographs and satellite images and is among
the top five academic African map libraries in the U.S.
Graduate Certificate Program-The Center for African
Studies, in cooperation with participating academic units,
offers a Certificate in African Studies in conjunction with
the master's and doctoral degrees.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the
Center should be addressed to the Director, Center for
African Studies, 427 Grinter Hall, or visit the Center web-
site at http://www.africa.ufl.edu.

Agroforestry
The agroforestry interdisciplinary concentration is
administered through the School of Forest Resources and
Conservation. It offers facilities for interdisciplinary gradu-
ate education (M.S., Ph.D.) by combining course work and
research around a thematic field focusing on agroforestry,
especially in the context of tropical land use. Students seek-
ing admission to the concentration should have a degree in
one of the relevant fields such as agronomy, forestry, horti-
culture, soil science, or social sciences. They should apply to
the School of Forest Resources and Conservation or anoth-
er academic unit that closely represents their background
and interest. Course work may be chosen from several relat-
ed disciplines. Thesis research can be undertaken in Florida
or overseas. Degrees will be awarded through the academic
units in which the candidates are enrolled.
In conjunction with the graduate degree, a student can
earn a concentration or minor in agroforestry by fulfilling
certain requirements. Students who have a primary interest
in agroforestry and undertake graduate research on an agro-
forestry topic can seek the concentration. Those who have
an active interest and some training in agroforestry, but do
not conduct graduate research on an agroforestry topic, can
earn a minor. Candidates who fulfill the applicable require-
ments can have their transcripts inscribed, upon request,
with the citation Concentration in Agroforestry or Minor
in Agroforestry.
Requirements for either option include completion of
FNR 5335-Agroforestry and an appropriate number of
approved supporting courses. These courses should be dis-
tributed over at least two de vide the student with the back-
ground necessary to function in multidisciplinary teams and
in association with professionals from other disciplines.
Individuals with a strong biological background are encour-
aged to take courses in the social sciences, and vice versa.
Candidates for the concentration or minor in agroforestry
should include on the graduate committees at least one fac-
ulty member representing the agroforestry interest. This fac-
ulty member, as designated by the Agroforestry Program
Advisory Committee, will counsel the student on the selec-
tion of courses and the research topic.

Ecological Engineering
The Graduate Certificate in Ecological Engineering is
for graduate engineering students wishing to develop expert-
ise in ecological solutions to engineering problems. Students
interested in the certificate must apply for admission
through the Department of Environmental Engineering
Sciences. The certificate program is open to individuals in
any graduate program who hold an undergraduate engi-
neering degree, or who complete additional undergraduate
engineering articulation courses. This additional course
work is required to bring the student's background to the
minimum level required for engineers by the Accreditation
Board for Engineering and Technology.
The certificate program consists of 15 course credits, and
a research project with content materially related to some
aspect of ecological engineering. If appropriate, the 15 cred-
its of graduate course credit may count toward the mini-
mum requirements for the graduate degree. The student's
terminal project, master's thesis, or an individual studies
project may serve to satisfy the ecological engineering proj-
ect requirement. For more information, contact the gradu-
ate coordinator in the Department of Environmental
Engineering Sciences, P.O. Box 116450, University of
Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611 or call (352)392-8450.

Geographic Information Sciences
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have revolu-
tionized the way that land features are located, measured,
inventoried, managed, planned, and studied. GIS provides
the theories and methods for original measurements of loca-
tion and topography, physical and biological attributes, and
distribution of cultural components through data storage,
analysis, modeling, mapping, and data display.
GIS applications are diverse. They include determining
the suitability of land for different uses, planning future land
uses for different objectives, setting cadastral boundaries for
the purpose of property recognition and taxation and regu-
lation, analyzing land and land-cover properties for both
resource inventories and scientific studies, and siting com-
mercial enterprises.
Users and producers of GIS include engineers, geogra-
phers, urban and regional planners, biologists and ecolo-
gists, land resource managers, anthropologists and archaeol-
ogists, sociologists, public health professionals and medical
researchers, county land-management and property tax
assessors, law enforcement officers, land-development com-
panies, utility companies, retail stores, and others.
Undergraduate and graduate students who learn to use GIS
technology are in high demand and so start at higher salaries
than their non-GIS peers. As a result the GIS community at
the University of Florida has developed the
Interdisciplinary Concentration for Geographic
Information Sciences (ICGIS).
The ICGIS is designed to integrate existing GIS resources
on campus, for graduate students, as a response to changing
regulatory environments in institutions and governments at
all levels. This concentration has established a standard set
of courses and activities that would allow graduate students
to become experts in the creation, study, and use of geo-

lished a five-category curriculum that would add several
courses to the standard M.S., M.A., M.E., or Ph.D. require-
ments and would result in official recognition of having
completed the GIS concentration by statements on tran-
scripts and a certificate

Gerontological Studies
The Center offers the minor in gerontology, the
Graduate Certificate in Gerontology, and a college certifi-
cate in Geriatric Care Management. These programs are
completed in conjunction with the student's graduate
degree, for master's, specialist, and doctoral students.
Graduate students may complete one or all of these pro-
grams. All programs require GEY 6646, an interdisciplinary
core course, that provides a broad introduction to the criti-
cal issues and growing academic knowledge about aging,
covering biomedical and health, psychosocial, and applied
issues. Advanced courses at the graduate and professional
level provide an opportunity for all students to expand their
interdisciplinary knowledge and research background in
aging. Students interested in aging major in graduate pro-
grams all over campus but their degrees are predominantly
in the fields of nursing, psychology, occupational or physi-
cal therapy, rehabilitation, sociology, exercise and sport sci-
ences, communication sciences and disorders or audiology,
and recreational studies.
For the minor in gerontology, students complete 6 credits
(master's level) or 12 credits (doctoral level) of approved
aging courses outside of their major academic units. This
program is most appropriate for students who desire course
work in aging that will complement their future career inter-
ests. The Graduate Certificate in Gerontology requires com-
pletion of a major research project (typically, the student's
thesis or dissertation), plus 12 credits of approved aging
courses. This certificate is most appropriate for students
planning to do substantive research in the field of aging as
part of their graduate work.

Latin American Studies
The Center for Latin American Studies offers interdisci-
plinary teaching and research focused on Latin America and
the Caribbean.
Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Studies.-The
master's degree offered through the Center requires 30 cred-
its and completion of a thesis. It is available in two versions,
both of which require a 15-credit major specialization. This
specialization may be disciplinary or topical. Disciplinary
specializations emphasize training and research in area and
language studies within a specific academic unit, such as
Anthropology, Economics, Food and Resource Economics,
Geography, History, Political Science, Romance Languages
and Literatures (Spanish), or Sociology, to develop a greater
understanding of Latin America's cultures and societies.
This option is especially suited for students who wish to
obtain a well-rounded background in Latin American stud-
ies before pursuing the Ph.D. in a specialized discipline.
Topical specializations cluster course work and research
around a thematic field focusing on contemporary Latin
American problems, such as Andean studies, Brazilian stud-
ies, Caribbean studies, international communications, reli-
gion and society, and tropical conservation and develop-
ment. This option builds on prior professional or adminis-
trative experiences and prepares students for technical and


professional work related to Latin America and the
Caribbean.
Additional requirements for both options are (1) 15 cred-
its of Latin American area and language courses in two other
academic units outside the specialization, including one
seminar LAS 6938; (2) reading, writing, and speaking
knowledge of one Latin American language (Spanish,
Portuguese, or Haitian Creole); and (3) an interdisciplinary
thesis on a Latin American topic.
Although the M.A. degree in Latin American studies is
terminal, many past recipients have entered the Ph.D. pro-
grams in related disciplines preparing for university teaching
and research careers. Other graduates have found employ-
ment in the Foreign Service, educational and research insti-
tutions, international organizations, government or non-
profit agencies, and private companies in the United States
and Latin America.
Requirements for admission to the program are (1) a bac-
calaureate degree from an accredited college or university;
(2) a grade-point average of at least 3.2 for all upper-divi-
sion undergraduate work; (3) a combined verbal-quantita-
tive score of at least 1000 on the Graduate Record
Examination; (4) a TOEFL score of 550 for nonnative
speakers of English; (5) a basic knowledge of either Spanish
or Portuguese; some Latin American course work.
Juris Doctor/Master of Arts Program-This joint degree
culminates in the Juris Doctor degree awarded by the
College of Law and the Master of Arts degree in Latin
American studies awarded by the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences. Participating students can earn both degrees in
approximately one year less than if the degrees were pursued
consecutively. The joint program provides an opportunity
for students to develop their area and topical expertise in
Latin America in combination with the study of law.
Candidates for the joint program must meet entrance
requirements for and be admitted to both academic units.
Admission criteria for the M.A. program are detailed in the
Requirements for Master's Degrees section of this catalog.
For the J.D requirements, see the College of Law Catalog.
General features of the joint program are as follows: (1)
selection of a disciplinary or topic major specialization as
described above, (2) submission of a thesis on a topic relat-
ing to law and Latin America, (3) completion of the College
of Law's advanced writing requirement (the thesis will satis-
fy this requirement if certified by a member of the law fac-
ulty), and (4) a reciprocal arrangement between the College
of Law and the Center for Latin American Studies that
enables participating students, with approval, to count up to
12 credits toward both programs. For more information on
this joint degree, please contact Dr. Terry McCoy, Center
for Latin American Studies (tlmccoy@latam.ufl.edu).
Master of Arts/Master of Science Combined Degree

Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA)-A program
emphasizing breadth in topics relevant to tropical agricul-
ture (with certificate) for graduate students is available
through the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. The
CTA is designed to prepare students for work in situations
requiring knowledge of both the biological and social
aspects of tropical agriculture. Students entering the pro-
gram will receive guidance from members of the CTA
Steering Committee regarding course work appropriate for
careers in international agricultural development.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credits. The "typical"
certificate program will consist of 12 to 24 credits. These
credits may, with approval from supervisory committees,
also count toward the M.S. or Ph.D. While foreign language
abilities and work experience in a foreign country are strong-
ly encouraged, they are not requisites for the CTA.
Application brochures are available from the Office of the
Dean for Academic Programs (College of Agricultural and
Life Sciences), 2014 McCarty Hall.
Other Activities-The Center seeks a broad dissemina-
tion of knowledge about tropical agriculture through the
sponsoring of conferences, short courses, and seminars fea-
turing leading authorities on the tropics; publication of
books, monographs, and proceedings; and through acquisi-
tion of materials for the library and the data bank.

Tropical Conservation and Development
An interdisciplinary graduate certificate and an interdisci-
plinary graduate concentration, focused on integrative
approaches to conservation and development in Latin
America and other tropical regions, are offered by the


I EEA NOMTO


I








Tropical Conservation and Development Program (TCD),
located in the Center for Latin American Studies. The cer-
tificate and concentration are open to students enrolled in
master's and Ph.D. programs in participating academic
units at the University of Florida who are interested in
acquiring interdisciplinary knowledge and technical skills to
pursue a career in conservation and development research
and practice.
Course work for both the certificate and the concentration
includes social science theory, principles of tropical ecology,
patterns and trends of tropical resource use and conservation,
and research methods. TCD core courses also allow students
to gain essential practical skills. Emphasis is on communica-
tion and presentation techniques, grant writing and
fundraising, facilitation and conflict management, participa-
tory methods for research and project implementation, and
project design, analysis and evaluation. Summer research,
practitioner experiences, and field-based training programs
provide learning opportunities outside the classroom.
Upon completion of the certificate or concentration, stu-
dents should have an in-depth understanding of the rela-
tionships among biological conservation, resource manage-
ment, and the livelihood needs of rural communities, and
the appropriate professional skills for a career in research,
field practice or both.
TCD's affiliate academic units are Agricultural Education
and Communication, Agronomy, Anthropology, Compar-
ative Law, Botany, Food and Resource Economics, Forest
Resources and Conservation, Geography, Latin American
Studies, Natural Resources and Environment, Political
Science, Religion, Sociology, Soil and Water Science, Urban
and Regional Planning, Wildlife Ecology and Conservation,
Women's Studies, and Zoology.
Master's students who wish to earn a certificate in TCD
must complete 12 credits of approved course work-two
interdisciplinary core courses and one course each in tropi-
cal ecology and social science. Ph.D. students can earn a cer-
tificate by completing 15 credits of approved course
work-three interdisciplinary core courses and one course
each in tropical ecology and social science. Students from
natural science academic units must take the social science
credits outside of their major academic units. Otherwise,
courses from the student's major can count toward program
requirements. Substitutions can only be made with prior
approval from the TCD Associate Director.
To earn a concentration in TCD, students must complete
the course requirements for the certificate (as explained
above) and they must focus on tropical conservation and
development in their thesis, dissertation, or final project.
One member of the student's supervisory committee must
be a TCD affiliate faculty member. This person has the
responsibility to judge whether the student's thesis focuses
on tropical conservation and/or development. For the facul-
ty member to make this judgment, the student must articu-
late how his/her research fits within the broader context of
biodiversity conservation and/or rural development in the
tropics. This person cannot count as the external member
of the committee.

Tropical Studies
The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a consor-
tium of 50 major educational and research institutions in
the United States and abroad, created to promote under-
standing of tropical environments and their intelligent use
by people. The University of Florida is a charter member.
Graduate field courses in tropical biology and ecology, agri-
cultural ecology, population biology, and forestry are offered
in Costa Rica and Brazil during the spring and summer

terms. Students are selected on a competitive basis from all
OTS member institutions.
A University of Florida graduate student may register for
eight credits in an appropriate course cross-listed with OTS,
e.g., BOT 6951, PCB 6357C, or AGG 6933. The
University of Florida does not require tuition for OTS
courses. Registration is on the host campus. However, stu-
dents on Graduate Assistantships must be registered at the
University of Florida as well. Research grants are available
through OTS. Further information may be obtained from
University of Florida representatives to the OTS board of
directors, located in 321 Carr Hall and 3028 McCarty Hall.

Vision Sciences
An interdisciplinary specialization in vision sciences is
available through the College of Medicine. The Department
of Ophthalmology serves as the administrative and logistical
center. However, most of the faculty are from the IDP
advanced concentrations. Current interests include retinal
gene therapy, gene expression in the mammalian retina and
lens, especially during fetal development, biochemistry of
vision in vertebrates and invertebrates, biochemistry and
neurobiology of wound healing and neural tissue degenera-
tion, and molecular and cell biology of animal model retinal
regeneration. Further information may be obtained from
the program director, Dr. William W. Hauswirth, P.O. Box
100266, College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL 32610 or call
(352)392-0679.

Wetland Sciences
The interdisciplinary concentration in wetland sciences
(ICWS) is a unified interdisciplinary program in wetland sci-
ence and policy for students at the Masters and Ph.D levels.
Graduate faculty from the following academic units con-
tribute to the wetlands sciences concentration: Agricultural
and Biological Engineering, Botany, Civil Engineering,
Environmental Engineering Sciences, Fisheries and Aquatic
Sciences, Forest Resources and Conservation, Geography,
Geological Sciences, Landscape Architecture, Law, Soil and
Water Sciences, Urban and Regional Planning, Wildlife
Ecology and Conservation, and Zoology. Students within
any of these programs may elect to participate in the ICWS.
A major strength of the ICWS is the breadth of wetlands-
related courses and research opportunities found in many

18
academic programs across campus. The ICWS is designed
both to expose students to perspectives outside their disci-
plines and to provide a rigorous, substantive education in
wetlands sciences in addition to their disciplinary focus.
Students may complete the ICWS for either the MS or
Ph.D degree. A core curriculum (15 credits for M.S. and 18
credits for Ph.D.) provides the opportunity for interdiscipli-
nary training in four broad subject areas: (1) wetlands sci-
ence (1 course each in wetlands ecology, wetland hydrology,
and wetlands biogeochemistry), (2) wetlands systems,
(3)wetlands organisms, and (4) wetlands policy/law.
Additional course work within a student's disciplinary focus
may strengthen his/her knowledge base or allow for special-
ization in one or more of the areas.
For more information contact the Howard T. Odum Center
for Wetlands, Phelps Lab, P.O. Box 116350, telephone
(352)392-2424, or visit the web site http://www.cfw.ufl.edu.

Women's and Gender Studies
Two certificates, two master's degrees, and a doctoral con-
centration are offered in women's and gender studies.
Graduate Faculty from several academic units, campus-
wide, participate. Among the academic units represented are
Agricultural and Life Sciences, Anthropology, Counselor
Education, English, German and Slavic Studies, History,
Journalism and Communications, Latin American Studies,
Linguistics, Medicine, Nursing, Philosophy, Psychology,
Religion, Romance Languages and Literatures, Sociology,
and Teaching and Learning.
The two graduate certificates in women's studies for mas-
ter's and doctoral students are offered in conjunction with
degree programs in other academic units. The Graduate
Certificate in Women's Studies and the Graduate Certificate
in Gender and Development require specific sets of course
work designed to give students a thorough grounding in the
discipline. The Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies is a
general introduction to the field, and the Graduate
Certificate in Gender and Development is designed for stu-
dents who wish to focus on issues related to gender, eco-
nomic development, and globalization.
The doctoral-level interdisciplinary concentration in
women's and gender studies provides graduate students an
opportunity to develop a thorough grounding in the new
scholarship produced through the intersection of women's
studies and other academic fields. The concentration facili-
tates the analysis and assessment of theories about the role of
gender in cultural systems and its intersections with other
categories of differences, such as race, ethnicity, religion,
class, sexuality, physical and mental ability, age, economic
and civil status. Emphasis is on participating in women's and
gender studies research and on providing an intellectual
environment in which cross-fertilization between disciplines
can flourish. Women's and gender studies critically explore
the role and status of women and men, past and present.
Ph.D. degrees are awarded through participating academ-
ic units with the interdisciplinary concentration in women's
and gender studies. Graduate degree programs are designed
by each student's committee, headed by the supervisory
chair who is affiliated with women's/gender studies.


Requirements for admission are the same as for the stu-
dent's home academic unit and college. After admission to
the degree granting academic unit, the application is sent by
the academic unit to the Graduate Coordinator of Women's
and Gender Studies who chairs an admissions committee.
For further information on the master's degrees, see
Specialized Master's Degrees and the Fields of Instruction sec-
tions of this catalog or contact the Director, Center for
Women's Studies and Gender Research, 3324 Turlington Hall.


Admission to the Graduate
School


How to Apply
Application for Admission-Applicants should contact the
academic unit of interest for information about admissions
procedures. Contact the academic unit directly or their web-
site at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/contacts.shtml.
Applications that meet minimum standards are referred by
Graduate Admissions in the Office of the University
Registrar to the graduate selection committees of the various
academic units for approval or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given academic
unit, the prospective student must satisfy the requirements
of the unit as well as those of the Graduate School.
Admission to some programs is limited by the resources
available.
Minimum Requirements-The Graduate School,
University of Florida, requires both a minimum grade aver-
age of B for all upper-division undergraduate work and a
minimum verbal-quantitative total score of 1000 on the
General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (or satis-
factory scores on the Graduate Management Admission Test
for students applying to the Warrington College of Business
Administration) for students with an earned bachelor's degree
only or its international equivalent based on a four-year cur-
riculum. For some academic units, and in more advanced lev-
els of graduate study, undergraduate averages or Graduate
Record Examination scores above those stated for the
Graduate School may be required. Some academic units
require a reading knowledge of at least one foreign language.
Exceptions to the above requirements are made only when
these and other criteria, including letters of recommendation,
are reviewed by the academic unit, recommended by thecol-
lege, and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is dependent
upon presentation of a baccalaureate degree from an accred-
ited college or university. Two copies of the official tran-
scripts from all previously attended colleges or universities
should accompany all applications-one for the academic
unit and one for the Registrar. These transcripts must be
received directly from the registrar of the
institution in which the work was done. Official supple-
mentary transcripts are required as soon as they are available
for any work completed after application for admission has
been made.

ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


-I


Admission requirements of an academic unit are often
more rigorous than the minimum requirements set by the
Graduate School. Because of resource limitations, most aca-
demic units do not accept all qualified applicants.
The University of Florida is committed to creating a
community that reflects the rich racial, cultural and ethnic
diversity of the State of Florida and the United States of
America. No challenge that exists in higher education has
greater importance than the challenge of enrolling students
and hiring faculty and staff who are members of diverse
racial, cultural, or ethnic minority groups. This pluralism
enriches the University community, offers opportunity for
robust academic dialogue and contributes to better teaching
and research. The University and its components will bene-
fit from the richness of a multicultural student body, facul-
ty, and staff who can learn from one another. Such diversity
will empower and inspire respect and understanding among
us. The University does not tolerate the actions of anyone
that violate the rights of another. The University will
embody, through policy and practice, a diverse community.
Our collective efforts will lead to a University that is truly
diverse and reflects the U.S. population.
The University encourages applications from qualified
applicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious,
and ethnic groups. The University does not discriminate on
the basis of marital status, disability, or age in admission or
access to its programs and activities. The Title IX
Coordinator is located in 145 Tigert Hall, (352)392-6004.

Admissions Examinations
Graduate Record Examination-In addition to the
General Test of the Graduate Record Examination which is
required of all first time graduate students, some academic
units encourage the applicant to submit scores on one or
more advanced subject tests of the Graduate Record
Examination. The scores on all tests taken will be considered
in regard to admission. Applicants with a previous graduate
or professional degree or equivalent from a regionally
accredited U.S. institution may be exempt from the
Graduate Record Examination and undergraduate G.P.A.
requirements. Inquiries about specific requirements should
be addressed to the academic unit in question.
Graduate Study in Business Administration-Students
applying for admission to the Graduate School for study in
the Warrington College of Business Administration may
substitute satisfactory scores on the Graduate Management
Admission Test (GMAT) for the Graduate Record
Examination. Students applying for admission to the Master
of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program must submit
satisfactory scores on the GMAT. University of Florida min-
imum requirements are 465. Applicants should contact the
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for addi-
tional information.
Graduate Study in Law-Students applying to the grad-
uate program leading to the degree Master of Laws in
Taxation must hold the Juris Doctor or equivalent degree.


19
Medical Immunization
Prior to registration, each student accepted for admission
must submit proof of immunization. When the application
is approved for admission, a form to complete and return is
forwarded to the student. No student is allowed to regis-
ter until the Health Care Center has received and
approved the form.

Computer Requirement
Access to and on-going use of a computer are required of
all students to complete their degree programs successfully.
The University expects each student entering the University
and continuing students to acquire computer hardware and
software appropriate to the degree program. Competency in
the basic use of a computer is a requirement for graduation;
class assignments may require use of a computer, academic
advising and registration can be done by computer, and
University correspondence is often sent via e-mail.
While the University offers limited access to computers
through its computer labs, most students are expected to
purchase or lease a computer that is capable of dial-up or
network connection to the Internet, graphical access to the
World Wide Web, and productivity functions such as word
processing and spreadsheet calculations. Detailed informa-
tion is provided on the following website http://www.circa.
ufl.edu/computers/. Most colleges have additional software
requirements or recommendations. See their web pages for
that information.

Conditional Admission
Students admitted as exceptions under the 10% waiver
rule must present both an upper-division grade point aver-
age and Graduate Record Examination General Test score
with their applications and meet other criteria required by
the University, including excellent letters of recommenda-
tion from colleagues, satisfactory performance in a specified
number of graduate courses taken as postbaccalaureate stu-
dents, and/or practical experience in the discipline for a
specified period of time.
In addition, students who are not eligible for direct
admission may be granted conditional admission to the
Graduate School to defer final admission decisions for one
term until requisite examination scores or final grade records
are available; to ascertain their abilities to pursue graduate
work at the University of Florida if previous grade records or
Graduate Record Examination scores are on the borderline
of acceptability; or when specific prerequisite courses are
required.
Students granted conditional admission should be noti-
fied by the academic unit of the conditions under which
they are admitted. When these conditions have been satis-
fied, the academic unit must notify the student in writing,
sending a copy to the Graduate School. Eligible course work
taken while a student is in conditional status is applicable
toward a graduate degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission will
be barred from further registration.

Immigration Parolee card or a Form 1-94 (Parole
Edition) was issued at least one year prior to the first
day of classes for which resident student status is
sought, or who have had their resident alien status
approved by the United States Immigration and
Naturalization Service, or who hold an Immigration
and Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of
an approved adjustment of status application, or
Cuban Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees or other
refugees or asylees so designated by the United States
Immigration and Naturalization Service who are con-
sidered as Resident Aliens, or other legal aliens, pro-
vided such students meet the residency requirements
stated above and comply with subsection (4) below.
The burden of establishing facts which justify classifi-
cation of a student as a resident and domiciliary enti-
tled to "resident for tuition purposes" registration
rates is on the applicant for such classification.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the
institution, or a person allowed to register at the
institution on a space available basis.
(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true, fixed, and
permanent home, and to which whenever the
person is absent the person has the intention of
returning.
(4) In all applications for admission or registration at the
institution on a space available basis a "resident for
tuition purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent child,
the parent of the applicant, shall make and file with
such application a written statement, under oath, that
the applicant is a bona fide resident and domiciliary
of the State of Florida. All claims to "resident for
tuition purposes" classification must be supported by
evidence as stated in Rule 6C-7.005(1),(2) if request-
ed by the registering authority.
(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child, the individ-
ual's parent, after maintaining a legal residence and
being a bonafide domiciliary of Florida for twelve
(12) months, immediately prior to enrollment and
qualification as a resident, rather than for the purpose
of maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode
incident to enrollment in an institution of higher
education, may apply for and be granted classification
as a "resident for tuition purposes"; provided, howev-
er, that those students who are nonresident aliens or
who are in the United States on a non-immigration
visa will not be entitled to reclassification. An appli-
cation for reclassification as a "resident for tuition
purposes" shall comply with provisions of subsection
(4) above. An applicant who has been classified as a
"nonresident for tuition purposes" at time of original
enrollment shall furnish evidence as stated in Rule
6C-7.005(1) to the satisfaction of the registering
authority that the applicant has maintained residency
in the state for the twelve months immediately prior
to qualification required to establish residence for
tuition purposes. In the absence of such evidence, the
applicant shall not be reclassified as a "resident for
tuition purposes." It is recommended that the appli-


21
cation for reclassification be accompanied by a certi-
fied copy of a declaration of intent to establish legal
domicile in the state, which intent must have been
filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, as provided
by Section 222.17, Florida Statutes. If the request for
reclassification and the necessary documentation is
not received by the registrar prior to the last day of
registration for the term in which the student intends
to be reclassified, the student will not be reclassified
for that term.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident for
tuition purposes" status to applicant therefore may be
initiated after appropriate administrative remedies are
exhausted by the filing of a petition for review pur-
suant to Section 120.68 F.S.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for tuition
purposes," which status is based on a sworn statement
which is false shall, upon determination of such falsi-
ty, be subject to such disciplinary sanctions as may be
imposed by the president of the university.

How to Apply for Residency
All U.S. citizens, permanent residents and others includ-
ed in Section 4 of the Board of Education Rule 6a-10.044
above are eligible to apply for Florida residency.
Residency for tuition purposes is controlled exclusively by
laws enacted by the Florida Legislature. For the purpose of
assessing tuition, residency and nonresidency status shall be
determined as provided in Classification of Students Florida
or Non-Florida (Section 6A-10.044, Florida Administrative
Code), Section 240.1201, Florida Statutes, and the Florida
State University System Residency Policy and Procedure
Manual [revised effective October 17, 2000]. The law may
be found in its entirety on line at http://www.leg.state.fl.us/
citizen/documents/statutes/. The residency review staff
members in the Office of the University Registrar reviews
applications for Florida resident status, together with sup-
portive documentation, and to render a decision based on
the documentation and the requirements of Florida law.
This law, the rules, and the implementation manual pre-
sume that students who are initially classified as nonresident
will not be reclassified as residents merely by being enrolled
for one year. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to
provide all appropriate documentation to merit a reclassifi-
cation for tuition purposes.
A student wishing to establish residency should pick up
the Request for Change in Residency Status form from the
Office of the University Registrar, 222 Criser Hall, to review
the information and items that may be requested when the
student files for Florida residency for tuition purposes.

International Students
All international students seeking admission to the
Graduate School are required to submit satisfactory scores on
the GRE General Test and a score of at least 550 on the paper-
based and 213 on the computer-based TOEFL (Test of
English as a Foreign Language) with the following exceptions:
1. International students whose native language is
English or who have spent at least one academic year
at a college or university prior to enrolling at the
University of Florida in a country where English is the
official language, excluding intensive English lan-
guage programs, need not submit TOEFL scores but
must submit satisfactory scores on the General Test of
the Graduate Record Examination before their appli-
cations for admission can be considered.
2. All international students applying for admission for
the Master of Business Administration program must
submit satisfactory scores from the Graduate
Management Admission Test before their applications
for admission will be considered.
International students whose scores on the TOEFL or verbal
portion of the GRE are not satisfactory are required to write a
short essay for examination. If the skills demonstrated in the
essay are not acceptable for pursuing graduate work, the exam-
ination will be used as a diagnostic tool for placement in appro-
priate courses which will not count toward a graduate degree.
Graduate students whose native language is not English
must submit satisfactory scores on the Test of Spoken English
(TSE) or the SPEAK Test to be eligible for teaching assign-
ments. Students who score 55 or above are allowed to teach in
the classroom, laboratory, or other appropriate instructional
activity. Those who score 45 to 50 are allowed to teach on the
condition that they enroll concurrently in EAP 5836, a course
designed to help their interpersonal and public speaking com-
munication skills. Students who fail to score 45 points may
not be appointed to teach. To raise their scores on the TSE,
they are advised to take EAP 5835, a course to improve gen-
eral oral language skills. They must subsequently submit a
TSE or SPEAK score of 45 or higher to be appointed to teach,
and they come under the guidelines described above.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing
Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for registration forms and
other information concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT, and

Veterans Administration and Social Security
Administration Benefits Information
The University of Florida is approved for the education
and training of veterans, spouses, or dependents of veterans
(100 percent disabled or deceased service connected), by the
Florida Department of Veterans Affairs.
Ten federal public laws currently provide education/job-
training programs for Department of Veterans Affairs
(DVA) eligible students. The four programs serving most
students are Chapter 30 for U.S. Military Veterans, Chapter
31 for Disabled U.S. Military Veterans, Chapter 35 for
Spouse and Children of Deceased or 100 percent Disabled
Veterans (service connected), and Chapter 1606 for person-
nel in the National Guard or U.S. Military Reserves.
Students can contact the Office of the University Registrar
or the DVA counseling center for specific program informa-
tion such as terms of payment, months of eligibility and an
additional allowance under the DVA work-study program.
University of Florida students who may be eligible for a
particular DVA educational program must obtain and sub-
mit a completed Application for Educational Benefits to the
Office of the University Registrar. This office will then cer-
tify the student for full-time (undergraduate 12 credits,
graduate 9 credits) or part-time educational benefits in
accordance with DVA rules and regulations.
The Atlanta Regional Processing Office of the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs will make a determination
of eligibility based on official service records, evidence sub-
mitted by the student, and applicable laws for veterans.
Students who have already established their DVA program
eligibility at another college or university must submit a
completed Change of Program or Place of Training form to
the University Registrar, as well as a University of Florida
Certification of Enrollment Request. All forms are available
at the University of Florida Registrar Information Counter
in 222 Criser Hall. This office also can provide confirmation
of student status for DVA health care or other benefits.
Inquiries relating to Social Security benefits should be
directed to the student's local Social Security Office. The
Office of the University Registrar will submit enrollment
certificates issued by the Social Security Administration for
students eligible to receive educational benefits under the
Social Security Act, providing the graduate student registers
for 9 credits or more during fall or spring semester or 8 cred-
its during summer term C.
A full-time graduate load for DVA or Social Security ben-
efits is 9 credits per semester.

ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


-I


Postbaccalaureate Students
Students who have received a bachelor's degree but have
not been admitted to the Graduate School are classified as
postbaccalaureate students. The admission requirements for
postbaccalaureate enrollment are a 2.0 grade point average
and a score of 550 on the Test of English as a Foreign
Language if the applicant is from a non-English speaking
country. Postbaccalaureate enrollment is offered for the fol-
lowing reasons: (1) to provide a means for students not seek-
ing a graduate degree to enroll in courses-included in this
category would be students who change their professional
goals or wish to expand their academic backgrounds-and
(2) to accommodate students who do intend to enter a grad-
uate program at some future date, but need a substantial
number of prerequisite undergraduate courses.
Postbaccalaureate students may enroll in graduate courses
but the work taken will not normally be transferred to the
graduate record if the student is subsequently admitted to
the Graduate School. By petition in clearly justified cases
and in conformance with regulations on courses and credit,
it is possible to transfer up to 15 semester credits of gradu-
ate course work earned with a grade of A, B+, or B.
For the College of Education, only students who have
completed a baccalaureate program in the College may be
admitted to postbaccalaureate status for the purpose of com-
pleting a teacher certification program. Other applicants
may be admitted to postbaccalaureate status only for a lim-
ited time to fulfill prerequisites for admission to a master's
program. Applicants seeking teacher certification, with
degrees in other fields, should apply for admission to a mas-
ter's program in the College of Education. More informa-
tion is available on the Registrar's website
http://www.reg.ufl.edu/brochures/post/postbacc.htm

Nondegree Registration
Nondegree enrollment is restricted to participants in spe-
cial programs, off-campus programs, University-affiliated
exchange programs, and those participants with nondegree
educational objectives at the University of Florida. Students
who have been denied admission to UF for any term are not
eligible for nondegree registration. Students must receive
prior approval from the academic unit(s) to take courses in a
nondegree status. Work taken will not normally be trans-
ferred to the graduate record if the student is subsequently
admitted to the Graduate School. By petition in clearly justi-
fied cases and in conformance with regulations on courses
and credit, it is possible to transfer up to 15 semester credits
of graduate course work earned with the grade of A, B+, or B.
A student should not remain in this classification for
more than one term before being admitted as a postbac-
calaureate or graduate student.

Readmission
This information applies only to students who have been
admitted to a graduate program and attended the
University. Former graduate students who do not enroll at
the University for two consecutive terms, including any
summer term, must reapply for admission whether to the


23
same or a different program. Readmission, however, is not
guaranteed and is subject to the availability of space at the
appropriate level, college or major. Therefore, it is strongly
advised that students who wish to take a leave of absence for
two or more consecutive terms obtain prior written approval
from their academic units. Students who skip a single term
will be scheduled automatically for a registration appoint-
ment for one additional term. Readmission applications are
available from the Office of Admissions, P.O. Box 114000,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-4000 or online
at www.reg.ufl.edu/regadmi.htm

Faculty Members as Graduate Students
University of Florida faculty in tenured or tenure-accruing
lines, as designated by the Florida Administrative Code, nor-
mally may not pursue graduate degrees from this institution.
Exceptions are made for the Florida Cooperative Extension
Service (IFAS) county personnel, the faculty of the P. K.
Yonge Laboratory School, and University Libraries faculty.
Under certain restrictions established by the Graduate
Council, persons holding nontenure- or nonpermanent-sta-
tus-accruing titles may pursue graduate degrees at the
University of Florida. Any other exceptions to this policy
must be approved by the Graduate Council. Such excep-
tions, if given, are rare and will only be approved when it is
determined to be in the best interest of the University.

Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships
Graduate Assistantships are available through individual
academic units. Stipend rates paid are determined by the
employing academic unit.
Interested students should inquire at their academic unit
offices concerning the availability of assistantships and the
procedure for making application. Prospective students
should write directly to their major academic units. Early
inquiry is essential in order to be assured of meeting applica-
tion deadlines. Appointments are made on the recommen-
dation of the academic unit chair, subject to admission to
the Graduate School and to the approval of the Dean of the
Graduate School. Clear evidence of superior ability and
promise is required. Reappointment to assistantships
requires evidence of continuation of good scholarship.
Unless otherwise specified, applications for these awards
should be made to the appropriate academic unit chair,
University of Florida, on or before February 15 of each year.
Fellows and graduate assistants must pay appropriate in-
state and out-of-state tuition. Fellows receiving semester
stipends of $3150.00 or greater and trainees are expected to
devote full time to their studies. Graduate assistants who
have part-time teaching or research duties register for
reduced study loads according to the schedule required for
their appointment. Students on appointment will be finan-
cially liable for excess credits over the required registration
or dropped courses.

Tuition Payments
In-State Matriculation Fee Payments are available to
graduate assistants and fellows who meet the eligibility

requirements. Any change in the student's academic or
employment status after processing a tuition payment will
result in the original payment being updated, reduced, or
voided as appropriate.
Non-Florida Tuition Payments are available to out-of-
state students who hold graduate assistantships or fellow-
ships and who meet the eligibility requirements. Any change
in the student's academic or employment status after pro-
cessing a tuition payment will result in the original payment
being updated, reduced, or voided as appropriate.

Residency for Graduate Students on
Appointment
Graduate research and teaching assistants and University
Alumni or Named Presidential Fellows who are United
States citizens or permanent residents are eligible for in-state
residency for tuition purposes after the completion of three
consecutive semesters over 12 consecutive months.
It is the policy of the University of Florida that all such
students must take the appropriate actions to become in-
state residents for tuition purposes at the beginning of their
first semester of enrollment and no later than the end of the
drop/add period. This includes (1) registering as a voter in
Florida; (2) obtaining a Florida driver's license or Florida ID;
(3) obtaining a Florida vehicle registration and insurance if
appropriate; and (4) completing a declaration of domicile.
Information to accomplish these tasks is available either
from the graduate coordinator, academic unit office, or on
line at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/faq.html.
At the beginning of their second year of enrollment, stu-
dents must file the appropriate documentation with the
Office of the University Registrar before the end of the
drop/add period.

University-Wide Fellowships
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/

Alumni Fellowship
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/alumni.html
Alumni Graduate Fellows represent the highest graduate
student award available at the University. Funded at nation-
ally competitive levels, these highly prestigious awards sup-
port students in all academic units of the University award-
ing a Ph.D. or MFA.
The Alumni Graduate Fellowships focus on identifying
and supporting students who seek the Ph.D. degree or
selected terminal master's degrees (the MFA for example).
To ensure that Alumni Fellows receive every opportunity to
succeed, the Alumni Graduate Fellowships provide a full
four years of support through a nationally competitive
stipend and full tuition waiver for qualifying students.
Most Alumni Graduate Fellows will receive a minimum
of two years of fully-funded fellowship, and they will receive
another two years of research or teaching assistantship. The
University expects Alumni Fellows to demonstrate high stan-
dards of academic achievement and participation in
University life.


Applicants for Alumni Fellowships apply through the aca-
demic unit of their major field of study. Successful appli-
cants will have outstanding undergraduate preparation, a
strong commitment to their field of study, and demonstrat-
ed potential in research and creative activities.

Named Presidential Fellowship
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/presidential.html.
The Graduate School sponsors fellowships named for for-
mer University of Florida presidents. They represent a four-
year commitment to the student, assuming satisfactory
progress toward the degree.
The first and fourth years are funded by the Graduate
School. The second and third years are funded by the stu-
dent's academic unit or college as either an assistantship or a
fellowship at the same stipend level as the Graduate School
funding. Because nationally competitive stipend levels vary
widely across disciplines, the academic units set the stipend
level. The lower bound of the stipend is $10,000 annually.
The fellowships are limited to U.S. citizens or permanent
residents who are pursuing a terminal degree (Ph.D., Ed.D.,
or M.FA.). The program is intended primarily to attract
outstanding students from across the nation. Applications
for students from traditionally underrepresented groups are
encouraged.
Potential applicants should contact their major academic
units for complete application information.

Grinter Fellowship
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/grinter.html
Grinter Fellowships are named in honor of Dr. Linton E.
Grinter, Dean of the Graduate School from 1952 to 1969.
The intent of this fellowship is to facilitate recruitment of
truly exceptional graduate students. Currently enrolled
graduate students are not eligible, except in the particular
case in which they are entering a Ph.D. (or other terminal
degree) program.
Stipends are normally in the $2000 to 4000 range.
Continuation of the Grinter beyond the first year is contin-
gent upon satisfactory student progress.
Interested students should contact their major academic
units for complete information. Students in the Colleges of
Agricultural and Life Sciences, Engineering, and Law are
not eligible for Grinter Fellowships.


Title VI-Foreign Language and Area
Studies Fellowship
Title VI fellowships are available to graduate students
whose academic programs are either Latin America or Africa
oriented. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent res-
idents and must be registered for a full-time course load
including a language relevant to the area of their choice,
specifically, Portuguese or Haitian Creole for recipients
through the Center for Latin American Studies; Akan,
Arabic, Swahili, or Yoruba for recipients through the Center
for African Studies.

General Regulations

It is the responsibility of the graduate student to
become informed and to observe all regulations and pro-
cedures required by the program s/he is pursuing. The
student must be familiar with those sections of the Graduate
Catalog that outline general regulations and requirements,
specific degree program requirements, and the offerings and
requirements of the major academic unit. Ignorance of a
rule does not constitute a basis for waiving that rule. Any
exceptions to the policies stated in the Graduate Catalog
must be approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but before the
first registration, the student should consult the college
and/or the graduate coordinator in the major academic unit


concerning courses and degree requirements, deficiencies if
any, and special regulations of the academic unit. The dean
of the college in which the degree program is located or a
representative must have oversight for all registrations. Once
a supervisory committee has been appointed, registration
approval should be the responsibility of the committee chair.

Catalog Year
Catalog year determines the set of academic requirements
that must be fulfilled for graduation. Students graduate
under the catalog in effect at the time of their initial enroll-
ments as degree-seeking students at the University of Florida
provided they maintain continuous enrollment. Students
who do not maintain continuous enrollment (two or more
consecutive terms) must reapply for admission and will be
assigned the catalog in effect at the time enrollment is
resumed. Students with the approval of their college dean's
office may opt to graduate under the requirements of a later
catalog, but they must fulfill all graduation requirements
from that alternative year. The University will make every
reasonable effort to honor the curriculum requirements
appropriate to each student's catalog year. However, courses
and programs will sometimes be discontinued and require-
ments may change as a result of curricular review or actions
by accrediting associations and other agencies.

Classification of Students
Classification Explanation
6 Postbaccalaureate students: degree hold
ing students who have been admitted to
postbaccalaureate credits.
7 Graduate students seeking a first master's
degree.
8 Graduate students who have earned a
master's degree, or who have earned 36
or more credits while seeking a graduate
degree, but who have not been admitted
to doctoral candidacy.
9 Graduate students who have been admit-
ted to doctoral candidacy.

Confidentiality of Student Records
The University assures the confidentiality of student edu-
cational records in accordance with the State University
System rules, state statutes, and the Family Educational
Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended known as the
Buckley Amendment.
Student directory information that can be released to the
public is limited to name, class, college and major; dates of
attendance; degrees) earned; honors and awards received;
local, permanent, and e-mail addresses; telephone number;
most recent previous educational institution attended; par-
ticipation in officially recognized activities and sports; and
the weight and height of members of athletic teams.
Currently enrolled students must contact the appropriate
agency/agencies to restrict release of directory information.
The Office of the University Registrar, the Department of
Housing and Resident Education, and the Division of

GENERAL REGULATIONS


Human Resources routinely release directory information to
the public. In addition to requesting this restriction from
the Office of the University Registrar, students who live on
campus must also request this restriction from the
Department of Housing and Resident Education (next to
Beaty Towers). Students who are University employees also
must request this restriction from the Division of Human
Resources.
Student educational records may be released without a
student's consent to school officials who have a legitimate
educational interest to access the records. "School officials"
shall include
*An employee, agent, or officer of the University or State
University System of Florida in an administrative, supervi-
sory, academic or research, or support staff position;
*Persons serving on university committees, boards, and/or
councils; and
*Persons employed by or under contract to the University to
perform a special task, such as an attorney or an auditor.
"Legitimate educational interest" shall mean any author-
ized interest or activity undertaken in the name of the
University for which access to an educational record is nec-
essary or appropriate to the operation of the University or to
the proper performance of the educational mission of the
University.
The University may also disclose information from a stu-
dent's educational records without a student's consent to
either individuals or entities permitted such access under
applicable federal and state law.
Students have the right to review their own educational
records for information and to determine accuracy. A photo
I.D. or other equivalent documentation or personal recogni-
tion by the custodian of record will be required before access
is granted. Parents of dependent students, as defined by the
Internal Revenue Service, have these same rights upon pres-
entation of proof of the student's dependent status.
If a student believes the educational record contains infor-
mation that is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of his
or her rights, the student may ask the institution to amend
the record. The UF Student Guide outlines the procedures
for challenging the content of a student record as well as the
policies governing access to and maintenance of student
records.

Academic Honesty
In the fall of 1995 the UF student body enacted a new
honor code and voluntarily committed itself to the highest
standards of honesty and integrity. When students enroll at
the University, they commit themselves to the standard
drafted and enacted by the students.
Preamble-In adopting this honor code, the students of
the University of Florida recognize that academic honesty
and integrity are fundamental values of the university com-
munity. Students who enroll at the University commit to
holding themselves and their peers to the high standard of
honor required by the honor code. Any individual who
becomes aware of a violation of the honor code is bound by
honor to take corrective action. The quality of a University


-'


27
of Florida education is dependent upon community accept-
ance and enforcement of the honor code.
The Honor Code-We, the members of the University of
Florida community, pledge to hold ourselves and our peers
to the highest standards of honesty and integrity.
On all work submitted for credit by students at the
University, the following pledge is either required or
implied:
"On my honor, I have neither given nor received unau-
thorized aid in doing this assignment."
Information on procedures is in the Student Guide at
http://www.dso.ufl.edulstg/ and is set forth in Florida
Administrative Code.

Student Conduct Code
Students enjoy the rights and privileges that accrue to
membership in a university community and are subject to the
responsibilities that accompany that membership. In order to
have a system of effective campus governance, it is incumbent
upon all members of the campus community to notify appro-
priate officials of any violations of regulations and to assist in
their enforcement. The University's conduct regulations are
available to all students on the Internet at http://www.dso.ufl.
edu/judicial and are set forth in Florida Administrative Code.
Questions should be directed to the Dean of Students Office
in 202 Peabody Hall, (352)392-1261.

Registration Requirements
The University of Florida operates on a semester system
consisting of two 16-week semesters and two 6-week sum-
mer terms. A credit under the semester system is equal to
1.5 quarter credits.

C term. Registration may be in any combination of A, B, or
C terms. However, courses must be distributed so that the
student is registered during each term that s/he is on
appointment. Students on appointment will be financially
liable for excess credits over the required registration or
dropped courses. Students who do not register properly will
not be permitted to remain on appointment.
Full-Time Registration-Students may be considered
full-time with a registration of 9-12 credits. However, most
fellows and assistants on .01-.24 FTE must be registered for
12 credits in fall/spring and 8 credits in summer. Students
not on an appointment may want to enroll full time to fin-
ish their degrees in the minimum timeframe or may be
required to enroll full time by external funding agencies or
their academic units.
Full-Time Equivalent-Full-time equivalent status refers
to a required or prescribed registration requirement, which is
less than 9-12 credits but considered appropriate in specific
circumstances. This includes students on a .25-1.00 FTE
assistantship and other limited circumstances found in the
Graduate Council Policy Manual at http://gradschool.rgp.
ufl.edu/education/gcpm.html 6.6.0.0.
Lockstep programs such as M.B.A. are defined as cohorts
who move together in the same enrollment sequence with
courses taught in a particular order on a particular schedule.
Students have no flexibility in their program or sequence,
and may not drop in and out of courses independently.
Upon academic unit request, the Graduate School will certi-
fy specified students as full-time equivalent under the cir-
cumstances stated in the Graduate Council Policy Manual.
Part-Time Registration-Students not on an appoint-
ment and without a specific registration requirement by the
government, external funding agency, or academic unit may
register as a part-time student. The minimum registration
requirement is 3 credits in fall/spring and 2 credits in the
summer.
Employee Registration-UF staff employed on a perma-
nent, full-time basis may be permitted to waive fees up to a
maximum of six credits per term on a space-available basis.
Enrollment is limited to courses that do not increase direct
costs to the University. Courses that increase direct costs can
include TBA (to be arranged), computer courses, individual-
ized courses, distance learning, internships, and dissertation
and master's thesis courses. Laboratory courses are permitted
on a space available basis.
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses-
Upper-division undergraduate students may enroll in 5000-
level courses with the permission of the instructor. Normally,
a student must have a grade point average of at least 3.00. To
enroll in 6000-level courses, a student must have senior
standing, permission of the instructor, and an upper-division
grade point average of at least 3.00.
After a student has been accepted in the Graduate School,
up to 15 credits of graduate-level courses earned with a grade
of A, B+, or B taken under this provision may be applied
toward a graduate degree at the University of Florida pro-
vided credit for the course has not been used for an under-
graduate degree and provided the transfer is approved by the
academic unit and made as soon as the student is admitted
to a graduate program.


Final Term Registration-During the term in which the
final examination is given and during the term the degree is
received, a student must be registered for at least three cred-
its in fall or spring and 2 credits in the summer that count
toward his/her graduate degree. Students on a fellowship,
traineeship, or assistantship must be registered appropriate-
ly for their appointment. Thesis students must be registered
in 6971 and doctoral students in 7980 for at least the min-
imum required registration.
Cleared Prior-Students exempt from final term registra-
tion must meet all of the following conditions before the
start of the first day of classes:
1. Correctly registered in the preceding term.
2. Completed all degree requirements, including final
submission of the dissertation, thesis, or project and
the final examination report.
3. Submitted the final examination form for the non-
thesis degrees
4. Cleared all incomplete or other unresolved grades.
5. Filed degree application with Office of the University
Registrar.
Add/Drop-Courses may be dropped or added during the
drop/add period without penalty. This period lasts four UF
calendar days, or three days for summer sessions, beginning
with the first day of the semester. Classes that meet for the
first time after the drop/add period may be dropped without
academic penalty or fee liability by the end of the next busi-
ness day after the first meeting. This does not apply to lab-
oratory sections. After this period, a course may be dropped
and a W will appear on the transcript. Any course added or
dropped after the deadline will result in a registration fee lia-
bility, even for students with fee waivers.
Retaking Courses-Graduate students may repeat cours-
es in which they earn failing grades. The grade points from
the first and subsequent attempts are included in the com-
putation of the grade point average, but the student receives
credit for the satisfactory attempt only.

Attendance Policies
Students are responsible for satisfying all academic objec-
tives as defined by the instructor. Absences count from the
first class meeting. In general, acceptable reasons for
absences from class include illness, serious family emergen-
cies, special curricular requirements, military obligation,
severe weather conditions, religious holidays, and participa-
tion in official University activities. Absences from class for
court-imposed legal obligations (e.g., jury duty or subpoe-
na) must be excused. Other reasons also may be approved.
Students may not attend classes unless they are registered
officially or approved to audit with evidence of having paid
audit fees. Following the end of drop/add, the Office of the
University Registrar provides official class rolls/addenda to
instructors.
Students who do not attend at least one of the first two
class meetings of a course or laboratory in which they are
registered and who have not contacted the academic unit to
indicate their intent may be dropped from the course.
Students must not assume that they will be dropped if
they fail to attend the first few days of class. The aca-

demic unit will notify students dropped from courses or lab-
oratories by posting a notice in the academic unit office.
Students may request reinstatement on a space-available
basis if documented evidence is presented.
The University recognizes the right of the individual pro-
fessor to make attendance mandatory. After due warning,
professors may prohibit further attendance and subsequent-
ly assign a failing grade for excessive absences.

Change of Graduate Degree Program
A graduate student who wishes to change majors, whether
in the same or a different college, must submit a completed
Change of Degree Program for Graduate Students form to
the Graduate School. The form must be signed by an
authorized representative of the new academic unit and col-
lege and then submitted to the Graduate School for pro-
cessing (http://www.gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/cur-
rentstudents.html).

Courses and Credits
Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be used as
any part of the graduate degree requirements. All 1000- and
2000-level courses may be taken on a satisfactory/unsatis-
factory basis (S/U).
Six credits of undergraduate courses (3000-4999), outside
the major academic unit, may be used for support course
work when taken as part of an approved graduate program.
Courses numbered 5000 and above are limited to gradu-
ate students, with the exception described under
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses
numbered 7000 and above are designed primarily for
advanced graduate students.
No more than five credits each of 6910 (Supervised
Research) and 6940 (Supervised Teaching) may be taken by
a graduate student at the University of Florida. Students
who have taken five credits of 6910 cannot take 7910; the
rule also applies to 6940 and 7940.
A complete list of approved graduate courses appears in the
section of this catalog entitled Fields ofInstruction. Academic
units reserve the right to decide which of these graduate
courses will be offered in a given semester and the academic
units should be consulted concerning available courses.
Generally graduate courses may not be repeated for cred-
it. However, there is no limit on courses numbered 6971,
6972, 6979, 7979, and 7980. Other courses that may be
repeated for credit are designated by max: immediately fol-
lowing the semester credit designation.
Professional Work-Graduate students may receive cred-
it toward their degrees for courses in professional programs
(e.g. J.D., D.V.M., or M.D.) when their advisers and grad-
uate coordinators certify that the course work is appropriate
for their programs and when the students receive permission
from the academic units and colleges offering the courses. A
list of such courses for each student must be filed with the
Graduate School Records Office and is limited to a maxi-
mum of 9 credits toward the master's degree and 30 credits
toward the doctorate.


29
Grades
The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+,
B, C+, C, and S. C+ and C grades count toward a graduate
degree if an equal number of credits in courses numbered
5000 or higher have been earned with grades of B+ and A,
respectively. Grade points are not designated for S and U
grades; these grades are not used in calculating the grade-
point average. All letter-graded courses taken as a graduate
student, except 1000 and 2000 level courses, are used in cal-
culating the cumulative grade-point average.
Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory-Grades of S and U are the
only grades awarded in courses numbered 6910 (Supervised
Research), 6940 (Supervised Teaching), 6971 (Master's
Research), 6972 (Engineer's Research), 7979 (Advanced
Research), and 7980 (Doctoral Research). Additional cours-
es for which S and U grades apply are noted in the academ-
ic unit offerings.
All language courses regardless of level may be taken S/U
if the student's major is not a language and the courses are
not used to satisfy a minor. Approval is required from the stu-
dent's supervisory committee chair and the instructor of the
course. S/U approval should be made by the date stipulated
in the Schedule of Courses. All 1000 and 2000 level courses
may be taken S/U. No other courses-graduate, undergradu-
ate, or professional-may be taken for an S/U grade.
Deferred Grade H-The grade of H is not a substitute for
a grade of S, U, or I. Courses for which H grades are appro-
priate must be so noted in their catalog descriptions, and
must be approved by the Graduate Curriculum Committee
and the Graduate School. This grade may be used only in
special situations where the expected unit of work may be
developed over a period of time greater than a single term.
Incomplete Grades-Grades of I (incomplete) received
during the preceding semester should be removed as soon as
possible. Grades of I carry no quality points and becomes
punitive after one term.
All grades ofH and I must be removed prior to the award
of a graduate degree.

Unsatisfactory Scholarship
Any graduate student may be denied further registration
in the University or in a graduate program should scholastic
performance or progress toward completion of the planned
program become unsatisfactory to the academic unit, col-
lege, or Dean of the Graduate School. Failure to maintain a
B average (3.00) in all work attempted is, by definition,
unsatisfactory scholarship. In addition to an overall GPA of
3.00, a graduate student must also have a 3.00 GPA in
his/her major (as well as in a minor if a minor is declared) at
the time of graduation. Students with less than a 3.00 GPA
may not hold an assistantship or fellowship.

Foreign Language Examination
A foreign language examination is not required for all
degree programs and the student should contact the graduate
coordinator in the appropriate academic unit for specific
information regarding any requirement of a foreign language.





GENERAL INFORMATION


I-


30
If a academic unit requires that a student meet the foreign
language requirement by satisfactory performance on the
Graduate School Foreign Language Tests (GSFLT) in
French, Spanish, or German, the student should contact the
Office of Academic Technology, 1012 Turlington Hall, for
an application and payment of fees. The examination times
and dates are listed in the University Calendar. Educational
Testing Service (ETS) no longer administers this examina-
tion and does not accept application fees or issue tickets of
admission for these tests.

Examinations
The student must be registered for sufficient credits that
count toward the graduate degree program during the
semester in which any examination is taken. The student's
supervisory committee is responsible for the administration
of the written and oral qualifying examinations as well as the
final oral examination for the defense of the thesis, project,
or dissertation. All members of the supervisory committee
must sign the appropriate forms, including the signature
pages of the thesis or dissertation, in order for the student to
satisfy the requirements of the examination.
The written comprehensive examination for the nonthesis
master's degree may be taken at a remote cite. All other qual-
ifying and final examinations for graduate students are to be
held on the University of Florida campus. Exceptions to this
policy are made only for certain graduate students whose
examinations are administered at the Agricultural Research
and Educational Centers or on the campuses of the univer-
sities in the State University System.
With the approval of all members of the supervisory com-
mittee, one committee member may be off-site at a qualify-
ing oral examination or at the final oral defense of the dis-
sertation or thesis, using modern communication technolo-
gy to participate rather than being physically present.

Preparation for Final Semester
It is the student's responsibility to ascertain that all
requirements have been met and that every deadline is
observed. Deadline dates are set forth in the University
Calendar and by the college or academic unit. These dates
are available online at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/grad-
cat/2004-200 5/critical_dates.html and http://my.ufl.edu.
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final
form, the student should obtain the Guide for Preparing
Theses and Dissertations from the Graduate School Editorial
Office (available on the web at http://gradschool.rgp.
ufl.edu/etd).
Students must also file a degree application with the
Office of the University Registrar (222 Criser Hall) at the
beginning of the final term and meet minimum registration
requirements. See Cleared Prior in this catalog.

Verification of Degree Candidate
Status
Degree candidates who have completed all requirements
for the degree, including the final examination or satisfacto-


ry defense and final acceptance of the thesis or dissertation,
may request verification to that effect prior to receipt of the
degree. Verification of Degree Candidate Status request
forms, available on the web at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/
education/currentstudents.html, should be filled out by the
candidate, signed by the adviser or supervisory chair and
college dean, and returned to the Graduate School for veri-
fication and processing.
Although a student may have fulfilled academic require-
ments, the degree is not awarded until the Graduate School
certifies the degree to the University Registrar. That is done
at the end of Fall, Spring, and Summer C terms for all stu-
dents who applied to graduate. Some employers and licen-
sure boards require the degree statement on the transcript,
which is available about three days after certification in
December, May, and August.

Awarding of Degrees
The Graduate School will authorize a candidate to be
awarded the degree appropriate to the course of study under
the following conditions (the details of which can be found
under the descriptions of the several degrees):
1. The candidate must have completed all course
requirements, including an internship or practicum if
required, in the major and minor fields, observing
time limits, limitations on transfer credit, on nonres-
ident work, and on level of course work.
2. The candidate must have a minimum grade average
of B (3.00, truncated) in the major and in all work
attempted in the graduate program, including a
minor where appropriate. All grades of I, H, and X
must be resolved. Grades of I, X, D, E, and U require
a written petition to the Dean of the Graduate
School.
3. The candidate must have satisfactorily completed all
required examinations, qualifying, comprehensive,
and final, and be recommended for the degree by the
supervisory committee, major academic unit, and
college.
4. The dissertation or, if required, thesis or equivalent
project must have been approved by the supervisory
committee and accepted by the Graduate School.
Recommendations for the awarding of a degree
include meeting all academic and professional quali-
fications as judged by the faculty of the appropriate
academic unit.
5. All requirements for the degree must be met while the
candidate is a registered graduate student.
Degrees are certified three times per year in December,
May, and August.


Attendance at Commencement
Graduates who are to receive advanced degrees are urged
to attend Commencement in order to accept personally the
honor indicated by the appropriate hood. The student may
arrange through the University Bookstore for the proper
academic attire to be worn at Commencement.

REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES


-I


Requirements for Master's
Degrees

The master's degree is conferred only upon completion
of a coherent and focused program of advanced study. Each
academic unit has set its own minimum degree require-
ments beyond the minimum required by the Graduate
School.

General Regulations
The following regulations represent those of the Graduate
School. Colleges and academic units may have additional
regulations beyond those stated below. Unless otherwise
indicated in the following sections concerning master's
degrees, these general regulations apply to all master's
degree programs at the University.
Course Requirements-Graduate credit is awarded for
courses numbered 5000 and above. The program of course
work for a master's degree must be approved by the student's
adviser, supervisory committee, or faculty representative of
the academic unit. No more than nine credits from a previ-
ous master's degree program may be applied toward a sec-
ond master's degree. These credits are applied only with the
written approval of the Dean of the Graduate School.
Major-The work in the major field must be in courses
numbered 5000 or above. For work outside the major, 6
credits of courses numbered 3000 or above may be taken
provided they are part of an approved plan of study.
Minor-If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of work
are required in the minor field. Two six-credit minors may
be taken with academic unit's permission. Minor work
must be in an academic unit other than the major. A
GPA of 3.00 is required for minor credit.
Degree Requirements-Unless otherwise specified, for
any master's degree, the student must earn a minimum of 30
credits as a graduate student at the University of Florida, of
which no more than nine credits, earned with a grade of A,
B+, or B, may be transferred from institutions approved for
this purpose by the Dean of the Graduate School. At least
half of the required credits, exclusive of 6971, must be in the
field of study designated the major.
Transfer of Credit-Only graduate (5000-7999) level
work to the extent of 9 semester credits, earned with a grade
of B or better, may be transferred from an institution
approved by the Graduate School or 15 semester credits
from postbaccalaureate work at the University of Florida.
Credits transferred from other universities will be applied
toward meeting the degree requirements but the grades
earned will not be computed in the student's grade-point
average. Acceptance of transfer of credit requires approval of
the student's supervisory committee and the Dean of the
Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree must
be made during the student's first term of enrollment in the
Graduate School.
The responsibility rests with the supervisory committee to
base acceptance of graduate transfer credits on established
criteria for ensuring the academic integrity of course work.


31
Supervisory Committee-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible after the
student has been admitted to the Graduate School but in no
case later than the second semester of graduate study.
Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs are
initiated by the student, nominated by the respective aca-
demic unit chair, approved by the college dean, and appoint-
ed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The Dean of the
Graduate School is an ex-officio member of all supervisory
committees. Only those members of the faculty who have
been appointed to the Graduate Faculty may serve as mem-
bers of a supervisory committee. If a student takes less than
12 credits in the first term, the deadline date to appoint a
supervisory committee is at the end of the term in which
s/he has accumulated 12 or more credits or at the end of the
second semester. If a minor is designated for any degree, the
committee must include one member as the representative
for that proposed minor. If two minors are designated, two
representatives must be appointed to the committee.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a
thesis must consist of at least two members selected from the
Graduate Faculty. The supervisory committee for a master's
degree without a thesis may consist of one member of the
Graduate Faculty who advises the student and oversees the
program. If a minor is designated, the committee must
include one Graduate Faculty member from the minor aca-
demic unit.
Language Requirements-(1) The requirement of a read-
ing knowledge of a foreign language is at the discretion of
the academic unit. The foreign language requirement varies
from one academic unit to another and the student should
check with the appropriate academic unit for specific infor-
mation. (2) The ability to use the English language correct-
ly and effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is
required of all candidates.
Examination-A final comprehensive examination must
be passed by the candidate. This examination must cover at
least the candidate's field of concentration and, in no case,
may it be scheduled earlier than the term preceding the
semester in which the degree is to be awarded. The compre-
hensive examination for the nonthesis master's degree may
be taken at a remote site. All other examinations must be
held on campus with all participants.
Time Limitation-All work, including transferred credit,
counted toward the master's degree must be completed dur-
ing the seven years immediately preceding the date on
which the degree is awarded.
Leave of Absence-A master's student who will not be
registered at the University of Florida for a period of two or
more semesters should obtain prior written approval from
his/her faculty adviser for a leave of absence for a designat-
ed period of time. The student will be required to reapply
for admission upon his/her return. See Readmission and
Catalog Year.

Master of Arts and Master of Science
The requirements for the Master of Arts and the Master
of Science degrees also apply to the following degrees, except
as they are individually described hereafter: Master of Arts






GENERAL INFORMATION


I-


32
in Education, Master of Arts in Mass Communication,
Master of Science in Building Construction, Master of
Science in Pharmacy, Master of Science in Recreational
Studies, and Master of Science in Statistics.
Course Requirements-The minimum course work
required for a master's degree with thesis is 30 credits includ-
ing up to 6 credits of the research course numbered 6971.
All students seeking a master's degree with thesis must regis-
ter for an appropriate number of credits in 6971.
The Graduate School requirement for a Master of Arts or
Master of Science degree taken with a nonthesis option is at
least 30 credits. No more than 6 credits of S/U-graded cours-
es may be counted in meeting the minimum requirements
for a nonthesis option. Students pursuing the nonthesis
option may not use the course numbered 6971.
For both nonthesis option and thesis programs, at least
half the required credits, exclusive of 6971, must be in a field
of study designated the major. One or two minors of at least
six credits each may be taken, but a minor is not required by
the Graduate School. Minor work must be in a academic
unit other than the major.
Engineering students, working at off-campus centers, who
are pursuing a nonthesis option Master of Science degree,
must take half the course work from full-time University of
Florida faculty members and are required to pass a compre-
hensive written examination by an examining committee
recommended by the Dean of the College of Engineering
and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. This
written comprehensive examination may be taken at an off-
campus site.
Theses-Candidates for the master's degree with thesis
must prepare and present theses (or equivalent in creative
work) acceptable to their supervisory committees and the
Graduate School. The candidate should consult the
Graduate School Editorial Office for instructions concern-
ing the form of the thesis. The University Calendar specifies
final dates for submitting the original copy of the thesis to
the Graduate School.
Electronic Theses-Students who entered in Fall 2001
and after are required to submit their final theses electroni-
cally. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis when
submitted in writing by the academic unit to the Graduate
School. These exceptions are intended for the student who is
off-campus during the semester the thesis is submitted.
More information is available at http://etd.circa.ufl.edu/cal-
endar.html, http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/etd, or from the
Graduate School Editorial Office.
Change from Thesis to Nonthesis Option-A student
who wishes to change from the thesis to the nonthesis option
for the master's degree must obtain the permission of the
supervisory committee to make such a change. This permis-
sion must be forwarded to the Graduate School by midpoint
of the final term. The candidate must meet all the require-
ments of the nonthesis option as specified above. A maxi-
mum of three credits earned with a grade of S in 6971
(Master's Research) can be counted toward the degree
requirements only if converted to credit as A, B+, or B in
Individual Work. The supervisory committee must indicate
that the work was productive in and by itself and warrants
credit as a special problem or special topic course.


Supervisory Committee-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible after the
student has been admitted to the Graduate School but in no
case later than the end of the second semester of study. The
duties of the supervisory committee are to advise the stu-
dent, to check on the student's qualifications and progress,
to supervise the preparation of the thesis, and to conduct the
final examination.
Final Examination-When the student's course work is
substantially completed, and the thesis is in final form, the
supervisory committee is required to examine the student
orally or in writing on (1) the thesis, (2) the major subjects,
(3) the minor or minors, and (4) matters of a general nature
pertaining to the field of study.
All supervisory committee members and the candidate
must be present at the final examination. At the time of the
examination, all committee members should sign the signa-
ture pages and the Final Examination Report. These may be
retained by the supervisory chair until acceptable comple-
tion of corrections. This examination may not be scheduled
earlier than the semester preceding the term the degree is to
be conferred.
Final Comprehensive Examination-The student who
elects the nonthesis option must pass a comprehensive writ-
ten or oral examination on the major field of study and on
the minor if a minor is designated. This comprehensive
examination must be taken within six months of the date
the degree is to be awarded.


Requirements for the Ph.D.

The Doctor of Philosophy is a research degree and is grant-
ed on evidence of general proficiency, distinctive attainment
in a special field, and particularly on ability for independent
investigation as demonstrated in a dissertation presenting
original research with a high degree of literary skill.
Consequently, doctoral programs are more flexible and varied
than those leading to other graduate degrees. The Graduate
Council does not specify what courses will be required for the
Doctor of Philosophy degree. The general requirement is that
the program should be unified in relation to a clear objective,
that it should have the considered approval of the student's
entire supervisory committee, and that it should include an
appropriate number of credits of doctoral research.

Course Requirements
The course requirements for doctoral degrees vary from
field to field and from student to student. A minimum of 90
credits beyond the bachelor's degree is required for the
Ph.D. degree in all fields. All master's degrees counted in the
minimum must have been earned in the last seven years.
Transfer of Credit-No more than 30 semester credits of a
master's degree from another institution will be transferred to
a doctoral program. If a student holds a master's degree in a
discipline different from the doctoral program, the master's
work will not be counted in the program unless the academic
unit petitions the Dean of the Graduate School. All courses
beyond the master's degree taken at another university, to be


I GENERAL INFORMATION


I








applied to the Ph.D. degree, must be taken at an institution
offering the doctoral degree and must be approved for gradu-
ate credit by the Graduate School of the University of Florida.
All courses to be transferred must be graduate level, letter
graded with a grade of B or better and must be demonstrated
to relate directly to the degree being sought. All such transfer
requests must be made by petition of the supervisory com-
mittee no later than the third semester of Ph.D. study. The
total number of credits (including 30 for a prior master's
degree) that may be transferred cannot exceed 45, and in all
cases the student must complete the qualifying examination at
the University of Florida. In addition, any prior graduate-level
credits earned at the University of Florida (e.g., a master's
degree in the same or a different discipline) may be transferred
into the doctoral program at the discretion of the supervisory
committee and by petition to the Graduate School. In such
cases, it is essential that the petition demonstrate the relevance
of the prior course work to the degree presently being sought.
Major-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to
do the major work in an academic unit specifically approved
for the offering of doctoral courses and the supervision of
dissertations. These fields are listed under Graduate
Programs. The cumulative grade for courses included in a
major must be B (3.00) or higher.
Minor-With the approval of the supervisory committee,
the student may choose one or more minor fields. Minor
work may be completed in any, other than the major aca-
demic unit, approved for master's or doctoral degree pro-
grams as listed in this catalog. The collective grade for cours-
es included in a minor must be B (3.00) or higher.
If one minor is chosen, the representative of the minor
academic unit on the supervisory committee shall suggest
from 12 to 24 credits of courses numbered 5000 or higher
as preparation for a qualifying examination. A part of this
background may have been acquired in the master's pro-
gram. If two minors are chosen, each must include at least 8
credits. Competence in the minor area may be demonstrat-
ed through a written examination conducted by the minor
academic unit or through the oral qualifying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not
be restricted to the courses of one academic unit, provided
that the minor has a clearly stated objective and that the
combination of courses representing the minor shall be
approved by the Graduate School. This procedure is not
required for a minor within a single academic unit.

Leave of Absence
A doctoral student who will not be registered at the
University of Florida for a period of more than one semes-
ter should obtain prior written approval from his/her facul-
ty adviser for a leave of absence for a designated period of
time. The student will be required to reapply for admission
upon his/her return. See Readmission and Catalog Year.

Supervisory Committee
Supervisory committees are nominated by the academic
unit chair, approved by the dean of the college concerned,
and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The
committee should be appointed as soon as possible after the

33
student has begun doctoral work and in general no later
than the end of the second semester of equivalent full-time
study. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio
member of all supervisory committees.
Duties and Responsibilities-Duties of the supervisory
committee follow:
1. To inform the student of all regulations governing the
degree sought. It should be noted, however, that
this does not absolve the student from the respon-
sibility of informing himself/herself concerning
these regulations. (See Student Responsibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointment to review the
qualifications of the student and to discuss and
approve a program of study.
3. To meet to discuss and approve the proposed disser-
tation project and the plans for carrying it out.
4. To give the student a yearly letter of evaluation in addi-
tion to the S/U grades awarded for the research cours-
es 7979 and 7980. The chair should write this letter
after consultation with the supervisory committee.
5. To conduct the qualifying examination or, in those
cases where the examination is administered by the
academic unit, to take part in it. In either event, the
entire committee must be present with the student
for the oral portion of the examination. This exami-
nation must be given on campus. (See Examinations
in the General Regulations section of this catalog for
variation in procedure.)
6. To meet when the work on the dissertation is at least
one-half completed to review procedure, progress,
and expected results and to make suggestions for
completion.
7. To meet on campus when the dissertation is com-
pleted and conduct the final oral examination to
assure that the dissertation is a piece of original
research and a contribution to knowledge. No fewer
than four faculty members, including all members of
the supervisory committee shall be present with the
candidate for this examination. Only members of the
official supervisory committee may sign the disserta-
tion and they must approve the dissertation unani-
mously. (See Examinations in the General Regulations
section of this catalog for variation in procedure.)
Membership-The supervisory committee for a candidate
for the doctoral degree shall consist of no fewer than four
members selected from the Graduate Faculty. At least two
members, including the chair, will be from the academic
unit recommending the degree, and at least one member
will be drawn from a different educational discipline with
no ties to the home academic unit to serve as external mem-
ber. One regular member may be from the home academic
unit or another unit.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee will
include at least one person selected from the Graduate
Faculty from outside the discipline of the major for the pur-
pose of representing the student's minor. In the event that
the student elects more than one minor, each minor area
must be represented on the supervisory committee.
Special Appointments. People without Graduate Faculty
status may be made official members of a student's supervi-

sory committee through the special appointment process.
The chair of the student's supervisory committee requests
the special appointment including a brief explanation of
what the proposed member will contribute to the superviso-
ry committee. A special appointment is made for a specific
supervisory committee. If a student changes to a new degree
or major and the committee chair wishes to include the spe-
cial member on the new supervisory committee, another
request must be submitted to the Graduate School for the
new committee. Appropriate candidates for special appoint-
ments include individuals from outside of the University of
Florida with specific expertise which will contribute to a
graduate student's program of study; tenure-track faculty
who have not yet qualified for Graduate Faculty status; and
nontenure-track faculty or staff at the University of Florida
who do not qualify for Graduate Faculty status.
Special appointments have several limitations because
they are not full graduate faculty. A special appointment
may not serve as a supervisory committee chair, cochair,
or external member. A special appointment may not be
the minor representative for a student with a minor.
External Member. The external member's responsibilities
are to represent the interests of the Graduate School and the
University of Florida; be knowledgeable about Graduate
Council policies; and, serve as an advocate for the student at
doctoral committee activities. In the event that the academ-
ic unit's committee activity conflicts with broader University
policies or practices, the external member is responsible for
bringing such conflicts to the attention of the appropriate
governing body. The external member is therefore prohibit-
ed from holding any official interest in the doctoral candi-
date's major academic unit. Faculty holding joint, affiliate,
courtesy, or adjunct appointments in the degree-granting
academic unit cannot be external members on a student's
committee.
Minor Member. The faculty member who represents a
minor on a student's committee may be appointed as the
external member if s/he does not have a courtesy graduate
appointment in the student's major academic unit.
Cochair. To substitute for the chair of the committee at
any examinations, the cochair must be in the same academ-
ic unit as the candidate.
Retired Faculty. Graduate Faculty members who retire
may continue their service on supervisory committees for
one year. Retired faculty who wish to continue serving on
existing or new committees beyond this period may do so
with approval of the academic unit.
Substitution of Members at Qualifying and Final
Examinations. If a supervisory committee member cannot
be present at the student's final defense, a Graduate Faculty
member in the same academic area may substitute for the
absent committee member. The substitute should sign the
Final Examination form on the left side, in the space pro-
vided for committee members, noting the name of the
absent member.
In addition, the student's major academic unit chair must
indicate on the form (or by accompanying correspondence)
the reason for the missing member's absence and that the


missing original committee member has agreed to this sub-
stitution at the final examination.
The substitute committee member should not sign the
signature page of the thesis or dissertation. The original
committee member must sign. This would be an exception
to the rule that the signature page and the Final
Examination form are signed simultaneously at the conclu-
sion of the defense.
With the approval of all members of the supervisory com-
mittee, one committee member-except for the chair or
external member-may be off-site at a qualifying oral exami-
nation or at the final oral defense of the dissertation or the-
sis, using modern communication technology to be present
rather than being physically present.
No substitutions may be made for the committee
chair or the external member of the committee. Changes
to the supervisory committee may be entered online prior to
the qualifying examination.
The Graduate Council desires each supervisory committee
to function as a University committee, as contrasted with a
departmental committee, in order to bring University-wide
standards to bear upon the various doctoral degrees.
Complete information regarding the appointment process is
found in the Graduate Council Policy Manual online at
http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/gcpm.html#8.0.0.0.

Language Requirement
Any foreign language requirement for the Ph.D. is estab-
lished by the major academic unit with approval of the col-
lege. The student should check with the graduate coordina-
tor of the appropriate academic unit for specific informa-
tion. The foreign language departments offer special classes
for graduate students who are beginning the study of a lan-
guage. See the current Schedule of Courses for the languages
in which this assistance is available.
The ability to use the English language correctly and
effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is
required of all candidates.

Campus Residence Requirement
Beyond the first 30 credits counted toward the doctoral
degree, students must complete 30 credits enrolled at the
University of Florida campus or at an approved branch sta-
tion of the University of Florida Agricultural Experiment
Stations or the Graduate Engineering and Research Center.
A department or college may establish and monitor its own
more stringent requirement as desired.

Qualifying Examination
The qualifying examination, which is required of all can-
didates for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, may be taken
during the third semester of graduate study beyond the
bachelor's degree.
The student must be registered in the term in which the
qualifying examination is given.
The examination, prepared and evaluated by the full
supervisory committee or the major and minor academic

units, is both written and oral and covers the major and
minor subjects. With the exception of the allowed substitu-
tions, all members of the supervisory committee, must be
present with the student at the oral portion. The superviso-
ry committee has the responsibility at this time of deciding
whether the student is qualified to continue work toward a
Ph.D. degree.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Graduate
School must be notified. A re-examination may be request-
ed, but it must be recommended by the supervisory com-
mittee and approved by the Graduate School. At least one
semester of additional preparation is considered essential
before re-examination.
Time Lapse-Between the oral portion of the qualifying
examination and the date of the degree there must be a min-
imum of two semesters. The semester in which the qualify-
ing examination is passed is counted, provided that the
examination occurs before the midpoint of the term.

Registration in Research Courses
Advanced Research (7979) is open to doctoral students
who have not yet been admitted into candidacy (7 and 8
classifications). Students enrolled in 7979 during the term
they qualify for candidacy will stay in this registration unless
the academic unit elects to change their enrollment to
Research for Doctoral Dissertation (7980).
Research for Doctoral Dissertation (7980) is reserved for
doctoral students who have been admitted to candidacy (9
classification).

Admission To Candidacy
A graduate student does not become a candidate for the
Ph.D. degree until granted formal admission to candidacy.
Such admission requires the approval of the student's super-
visory committee, the academic unit chair, the college dean,
and the Dean of the Graduate School. The approval must be
based on (1) the academic record of the student, (2) the
opinion of the supervisory committee concerning overall
fitness for candidacy, (3) an approved dissertation topic, and
(4) a qualifying examination as described above.
Application for admission to candidacy should be made
as soon as the qualifying examination has been passed
and a dissertation topic has been approved by the stu-
dent's supervisory committee.

Dissertation
Electronic Dissertation-Students who entered in Fall
2001 and after are required to submit their final dissertations
electronically. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case
basis when submitted in writing by the academic unit to the
Graduate School. These exceptions are intended for the stu-
dent who is off-campus during the semester the dissertation
is submitted. More information is available at http://etd.circa.
ufl.edu/calendar.html, http://gradschool. rgp.ufl.edu/etd, or
from the Graduate School Editorial Office.
Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to prepare
and present a dissertation that shows independent investiga-
tion and is acceptable in form and content to the superviso-

ry committee and to the Graduate School. Dissertations
must be written in English, except for students pursing
degrees in Romance or German languages and literatures.
Students in these disciplines, with the approval of their
supervisory committees, may write in the topic language.
Since all doctoral dissertations are published by micro-
film, it is necessary that the work be of publishable quality
and that it be in a form suitable for publication.
The original copy of the dissertation must be presented to
the Editorial Office of the Graduate School on or before the
date specified in the University Calendar. It must contain an
abstract and be accompanied by a letter of transmittal from
the supervisory chairperson, and all doctoral forms.
After corrections have been made, and no later than the
specified formal submission date, the fully signed copy of
the dissertation (either electronic or printed on 100% cot-
ton paper), together with the signed Final Examination
Report and five copies of the abstract, should be returned to
the Graduate School. The original copy of the dissertation is
sent by the Graduate School to the Library for microfilming
and archiving. If the manuscript is on paper, a second copy,
reproduced on required thesis paper, must be delivered to
the Library or college for hardbinding.
Electronic dissertations may be viewed at
http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/etd.html.
Publication of Dissertation-All candidates for the
Ph.D. and Ed.D. degrees are required to pay the sum of $55
to University Financial Services, S113 Criser Hall, for
microfilming their dissertations, and to sign an agreement
authorizing publication by microfilm.
Copyright-The candidate may choose to register the
copyright of the microfilmed dissertation for a charge of
$45 payable by a certified or cashier's check or money order
to PQIL attached to the signed microfilm agreement form.
To assure receipt of the valuable Copyright Registration
Certificate, candidates must give permanent addresses
through which they can always be reached.

Guidelines for Restriction on
Release of Dissertations
Research performed at the University can effectively con-
tribute to the education of our students and to the body of
knowledge that is our heritage only if the results of the
research are published freely and openly. Conflicts can devel-
op when it is in the interests of sponsors of university
research to restrict such publication. When such conflicts
arise, the University must decide what compromises it is will-
ing to accept, taking into account the relevant circumstances.
The AAU guidelines contained herein were adopted by the
University of Florida Graduate Council on January 19, 1989.
1. The recommendations of sponsors, which result from
prepublication reviews of research results and which
affect subsequent publication of these results, should
be considered advisory rather than mandatory.
2. The maximum delay in publication allowed for pre-
reviews should not exceed three months.
3. There should be no additional delays in publication
beyond the pre-review. Timely submission of any
patent or copyright applications should be the result






GENERAL INFORMATION

36


of effective communication between investigators and
sponsors throughout the course of the project.
4. There should be no restriction on participation in
nonclassified sponsored research programs on the
basis of citizenship.
5. Students should not be delayed in the final defense of
their dissertations by agreements involving publica-
tion delays.

Final Examination
After submission of the dissertation and the completion of
all other prescribed work for the degree, but no earlier than
the term preceding the semester in which the degree is con-
ferred, the candidate will be given a final examination, oral
or written or both, by the supervisory committee meeting on
campus. All supervisory committee members must be pres-
ent with the candidate at the oral portion of this examina-
tion. At the time of the defense all committee members
should sign the ETD Submission Approval form or signa-
ture pages and all committee and attending faculty members
should sign the Final Examination Report. These may be
retained by the supervisory chair until acceptable comple-
tion of corrections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adher-
ence to all Graduate School regulations outlined above com-
plete the requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation-All work for the doctorate must be
completed within five calendar years after the qualifying
examination, or this examination must be repeated.


Specialized Graduate Degrees

The Graduate School monitors the degree criteria stipulat-
ed below. See program descriptions in the Fields of Instruction
section of this catalog for additional requirements.

Master of Accounting
The Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) is the professional
degree for students seeking careers in public accounting,
business organizations, and government. The M.Acc. pro-
gram offers specializations in auditing/financial accounting,
accounting systems, and taxation.
The recommended curriculum to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting is the 3/2 five-year program with
a joint awarding of the Bachelor of Science in Accounting
and the Master of Accounting degrees upon satisfactory
completion of the 150-credit program. The entry point into
the 3/2 is the beginning of the senior year.
Students who have already completed an undergraduate
degree in accounting may enter the one-year M.Acc. pro-
gram which requires satisfactory completion of 34 credits of
course work, a minimum of 18 semester credits must be in
graduate level accounting, excluding preparatory courses. A
final comprehensive examination is required of all students.
Additional requirements are listed under the General
Regulations section for all master's degrees.

and the Master of Accounting degree awarded by the
Graduate School. The program is designed for students who
have an undergraduate degree in accounting and who are
interested in advanced studies in both accounting and law.
The joint program requires 20 fewer credits than would be
required if the two degrees were earned separately. The two
degrees are awarded after completion of the curriculum
requirements for both degrees. Students must take both the
GMAT (or the GRE) and the LSAT prior to admission, and
must meet the admission requirements for the College of
Law (J.D.) and the Fisher School of Accounting (M. Ace.).

Master of Building Construction
The degree of Master of Building Construction is
designed for those students who wish to pursue advanced
work in management of construction, construction tech-
niques, and research problems in the construction field.
The general requirements are the same as those for Master
of Science degrees except that a minimum of 33 graduate

When the student's course work is completed, or practi-
cally so, and the independent research report is complete,
the supervisory committee is required to examine the stu-
dent orally on (1) the independent research report, (2) the
major subjects, (3) the minor or minors, and (4) matters of
a general nature pertaining to the field of study.
Joint Program-The M.B.C./J.D. program is offered in
conjunction with the Levin College of Law.

Master of Business Administration
The Master of Business Administration degree is designed
to give students (1) the conceptual knowledge for under-
standing the functions and behaviors common to business
organizations and (2) the analytical, problem-solving, and
decision-making skills essential for effective management.
The emphasis is on developing the student's capacities and
skills for business decision making.
The curriculum is structured so that students may extend
their knowledge in a specialized field. The program offers
certificate programs in financial services, supply chain man-
agement, decision and information sciences, e-commerce,
entrepreneurship and technology management, and global
management, as well as concentrations in finance, security
analysis, real estate, competitive strategy, marketing, entre-
preneurship, decision and information sciences, manage-
ment, global management, human resource management,

years of full-time professional work experience performed
after receiving an acceptable bachelor's degree is required,
along with written essays and personal recommendations
from employers. Some applicants are asked to interview.
Applicants whose native, first language is not English are
required to submit scores for the Test of English as a Foreign
Language (TOEFL). Admission is competitive; thus, meet-


ing minimum requirements is unlikely, in itself, to result in
admission.
A heterogeneous student body is seen as an important
asset of the program. Accordingly, the backgrounds of stu-
dents include a wide range of disciplines and cultures.
Although the curriculum assumes no previous academic
work in business administration, enrolling students find
introductory course work in statistics, calculus, and financial
accounting beneficial.

be applied to the 30 credits upon approval by the Graduate
School. The Department will work closely with individual
students to determine how many previous graduate credits
at UF or other institutions may be applied to this program.
The student may elect minor work in an academic unit
other than classics (e.g., history, philosophy, art history, reli-
gion), although there is no requirement to do so. If a minor
is chosen, at least six credits are required in the minor field.
Two six-credit minors may be taken with departmental per-
mission. A GPA of 3.0 is required for minor credit as well as
for all work counted toward the degree. A GPA of 3.0 is
required for all work counted toward the degree, including
minor credit. All work in a minor must be approved by the
supervisory committee.
Examination-The supervisory committee will adminis-
ter a final oral and written comprehensive examination at
the completion of the course work. This examination will
include (1) an oral component: a one hour examination on
the general field of Latin literature, and (2) a written com-
ponent, consisting of one hour each on (a) Latin sight trans-
lation and grammar, (b) Roman history and civilization and,
only if applicable, (c) the minor, or minors. As preparation
for this examination, the student should read the required
reading list of secondary works in English.
Language Requirement-The Department does not
require, but strongly recommends, the acquisition of at least
a reading knowledge of one (or more) of the following:
German, French, Italian, or Spanish. Such study will facili-
tate reading important secondary works not translated into
English, enhance travel to the classical lands, and perhaps
lead to teaching opportunities in the chosen language at the
secondary school level.

uate-level courses in the major.

Engineer
For those engineers who need additional technical depth
and diversification in their education beyond the master's
degree, the College of Engineering offers the degree of
Engineer.
This degree requires a minimum of 30 credits of graduate
work beyond the master's degree. It is not to be considered
as a partial requirement toward the Ph.D. degree. The stu-
dent's objective after the master's degree should be the Ph.D.
or the Engineer degree.
Admission to the Program-To be admitted to the pro-
gram, students must have completed a master's degree in
engineering and apply for admission to the Graduate School
of the University of Florida. The master's degree is regarded
as the foundation for the degree of Engineer. The master's
degree must be based on the candidate having a bachelor's
degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited curriculum
or having taken sufficient articulation course work to meet
the minimum requirements specified by ABET.
Course and Residence Requirements-A total registra-
tion in an approved program of at least 30 graduate credits
beyond the master's degree is required. This minimum
requirement must be earned through the University of
Florida. The last 30 semester credits must be completed
within five calendar years.

Supervisory Committee-Each student admitted to the
program will be advised by a supervisory committee consist-
ing of at least three members of the Graduate Faculty. Two
members are selected from the major academic unit and at
least one from a supporting academic unit. In addition,
every effort should be made to have a representative from
industry as an external adviser for the student's program.
This committee should be appointed as soon as possible
after the student has been admitted to the Graduate School
but, in no case, later than the end of the second semester of
study.
This committee will inform the student of all regulations
pertaining to the degree program. The committee is nomi-
nated by the academic unit chairperson, approved by the
Dean of the College of Engineering, and appointed by the
Dean of the Graduate School. The Dean of the Graduate
School is an ex-officio member of all supervisory commit-
tees. If a thesis or report is a requirement in the plan of
study, the committee will approve the proposed thesis or
report and the plans for carrying it out. The thesis must be
submitted to the Graduate School. The committee will also
conduct the final examination on campus when the plan of
study is completed.
Plan of Study-Each plan of study is developed on an
individual basis for each student. Thus, there are no specif-
ic requirements for the major or minor; each student is con-
sidered individually. If the plan of study includes a thesis,
the student may register for from 6 to 12 semester credits of
thesis research in a course numbered 6972.
Thesis-The thesis should represent performance at a level
above that ordinarily associated with the master's degree. It
should clearly be an original contribution; this may take the
form of scientific research, a design project, or an industrial
project approved by the supervisory committee. Work on
the thesis may be conducted in an industrial or governmen-
tal laboratory under conditions stipulated by the superviso-
ry committee.
Final Examination-After the student has completed all
work on the plan of study, the supervisory committee con-
ducts a final comprehensive oral and/or written examina-
tion, which also involves a defense of the thesis if one is
included in the program. This examination must be taken
on campus with all participants present.

A 70-semester-credit program leading to the Au.D. is
offered for applicants holding an earned master's degree in
audiology from an accredited institution.
A 45-credit program leading to the Au.D. is offered for
applicants holding an earned master's from an accredited
institution, certification and/or licensure in audiology, and a
minimum of three years of full-time experience in audiology.
Supervisory Committees-Supervisory committees are
nominated by the chairs of the Departments of
Communication Sciences and Disorders and
Communicative Disorders, approved by the deans of their
respective colleges, and appointed by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
The committee should be appointed as soon as possible
after the student begins the program and, in general, no later
than the end of the second semester of equivalent full-time
study. The supervisory committee shall consist of no fewer
than two members of the audiology Graduate Faculty.
Duties of the supervisory committee include curriculum
planning for the student, annual evaluation of the student's
progress in the program including administration of the oral
and written comprehensive examination in the third year of
study, and determination of successful completion of the
audiology research project.
Comprehensive Examination-The comprehensive
examination, which is required of all candidates for the
degree of Doctor of Audiology, may be taken during the
eighth semester of study beyond the bachelor's degree. The
examination, prepared and evaluated by the supervisory
committee, is both written and oral. The committee has the
responsibility at this time of determining whether the stu-
dent is qualified to continue work toward the degree
through completion of the clinical residency.

Ed.S. and Ed.D.
The College of Education offers programs leading to the
degrees Specialist in Education and Doctor of Education.
The Specialist in Education degree is awarded for a two-
year program of graduate study. The Doctor of Education
degree requires writing a doctoral dissertation. Foreign lan-
guages are not required. The Doctor of Philosophy degree in
the College of Education is described under Requirements
for the Ph.D.
In cooperation with the Graduate Studies Office, College
of Education, programs leading to these degrees are admin-
istered through the individual academic units or school in
the College of Education. It is the responsibility of the aca-


demic units chair or director to carry out the policies of the
Graduate School and the Curriculum Committee of the
College of Education. More specific information about the
various programs and academic unit requirements may be
obtained from the individual units. General information or
assistance is available through the Office of Graduate
Studies in Education, 125 Norman Hall.

Specialist in Education
Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the
development of the competencies needed for a specific type
of employment. Programs are available in the various areas
of concentration within the School of Teaching and
Learning and the Departments of Counselor Education;
Educational Leadership, Policy, and Foundations;
Educational Psychology; and Special Education.
To study for this degree, the student must apply and be
admitted to the Graduate School of the University of
Florida. All work for the degree, including transferred cred-
it, must be completed during the seven years immediately
preceding the date on which the degree is awarded.
The Ed.S. degree is awarded at the completion of a
planned program with a minimum of 72 credits beyond the
bachelor's degree or a minimum of 36 credits beyond the
master's degree. All credits accepted for the program must
contribute to the unity and the stated objective of the total
program. Students are tested (in no case earlier than six
months prior to receipt of degree) in both a written and an
oral examination, given on campus by a committee selected
by the academic unit's director or chair. A thesis is not
required; however, each program will include continuing
attention to a research component relevant to the profes-
sional role for which the student is preparing.
With academic unit approval course work taken as part of
the specialist program may be counted toward a doctoral
degree.
Students who enter the program with an appropriate mas-
ter's degree from another accredited institution must com-
plete a minimum of 36 credits of post-master's study to sat-
isfy the following requirements.
1. At least 30 credits in graduate level courses.
2. At least 12 credits in graduate level professional edu-
cation courses.
3. Registration on the Gainesville campus of the
University of Florida for at least 6 credits in a single
semester.
Twelve credits for appropriate courses offered off-campus
by the University of Florida may be transferred to the pro-
gram. Six credits may be transferred from another institu-
tion of the State University System or from any institution
offering a doctoral degree; however, credit transferred from
another institution reduces proportionately the credit trans-
ferred from University of Florida off-campus courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's degree
only must, during the 72-credit program, satisfy these
requirements in addition to the requirements of the Master
of Education degree or its equivalent.

registration and late payment fees. Upon payment of fees, it
is the student's responsibility to ensure that his or her regis-
tration is updated.
In the event a student has not paid the entire balance of
his/her fee liability by the deadline, the University will sus-
pend further academic progress by placing a financial hold
on the student's record to prevent the release of grades,
schedules, transcripts, registration, diplomas, loans, the use
of UF facilities and/or services, and admission to UF func-
tions and athletic events, until the debt has been satisfied.

Deferral of Registration and Tuition Fees
A fee deferment allows students to pay fees after the dead-
line without cancellation of registration or late payment fee.
The University may award fee deferments in the following
circumstances:
*Students whose state or federal financial assistance is de-
layed due to circumstances beyond the student's control.
*Students receiving veterans or other benefits under Chapter
32, Chapter 34, or Chapter 35 of Title 38 U.S.C., and
whose benefits are delayed.
*Students for whom formal arrangements have been made
with the University for payment by an acceptable third-
party donor.
Deferment covers tuition fee payments only and must be
established by the fee payment deadline. Fee deferments are
granted based on information from the Office of Student
Financial Affairs (financial aid deferments) or the Office of
the University Registrar (veterans). Refer questions on eligi-
bility to the appropriate office.

Waiver of Fees
The University may waive fees as follows:
*Participants in sponsored institutes and programs where
direct costs are paid by the sponsoring agent.
*Intern supervisors for institutions within the State
University System may be given one nontransferable cer-
tificate (fee waiver) for each full academic term during
which the person serves as an intern supervisor. The certifi-
cate is valid for three years from the date of issuance. The
maximum credits allowed during a single semester will be
six credits of instruction (including credit through continu-
ing education). The certificate will waive the matriculation
fee; the student must pay the balance of the fees by the
deadline.
*Persons 60 years of age or older are entitled to a waiver of
fees for audited courses (up to 6 credits), as provided by
Section 240.235(3), Florida Statutes.
Certain members of the active Florida National Guard are
entitled to a waiver of fees pursuant to Section 250.10(7),
Florida Statutes.
A student enrolled through the Florida Linkage Institutes
Program is entitled to a waiver of fees pursuant to Section
288.8175(6), Florida Statutes.
The non-Florida student financial aid fee may not be
waived for students receiving an out-of-state fee waiver.


Refund of Fees
Tuition fees will be refunded in full in the circumstances
noted below:
*Approved withdrawal from the University before the end
of drop/add, with written documentation from the stu-
dent.
*Credits dropped during drop/add.
*Courses canceled by the University.
*Involuntary call to active military duty.
*Death of the student or member of the immediate family
(parent, spouse, child, sibling).
*Illness of the student of such severity or duration, as con-
firmed in writing by a physician, that completion of the
semester is precluded
*Exceptional circumstances, upon approval of the
University President or his designee(s).
A refund of 25 percent of the total fees paid (less late fees)
is available if notice of withdrawal from the University with
written documentation is received from the student and
approved prior to the end of the fourth week of classes for
full semesters or a proportionately shorter period of time for
the summer terms.
Refunds must be requested at University Financial
Services. Proper documentation must be presented when a
refund is requested. A waiting period may be required.
Refunds will be applied against any University debts. The
University reserves the right to set minimum amounts for
which refunds will be produced for overpayments on stu-
dent accounts.
Tuition refunds due to cancellation, withdrawal, or ter-
mination of attendance for students receiving financial aid
will first be refunded to the appropriate financial aid pro-
grams. If a student is a recipient of federal financial aid (Pell
Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
[SEOG], Perkins Loan, Federal Direct Stafford Loans, or
PLUS loans), federal rules require that any unearned portion
of the student's federal aid must be returned to the U.S.
Department of Education. The amount the student has
earned is based on the number of days s/he attended class-
es as compared to the number of days in the entire term
(first day of classes to end of final examination week). Any
remaining refund then will be returned according to
University policy.

Other General Fiscal Information
Students should bring sufficient funds, other than per-
sonal checks, to meet their immediate needs. Personal
checks will be accepted at University Financial Services for
the exact amount of fees and/or other amounts owed the
University. Payments on all financial obligations to the
University will be applied on the basis of age of the debt.
The oldest debt will be paid first. University Financial
Services does not cash checks or make cash refunds. Checks
written in excess of assessed fees or other amounts paid the
University will be accepted and processed, but the excess will
be refunded to the student at a later date, according to
University policy.

wait until they have been admitted to apply for aid. For fall
20041oans, applications should be submitted as soon as pos-
sible after January 1, 2004. Although students may apply for
Federal Direct Stafford Loans throughout the year, they
must observe the deadlines set each semester for applying for
loans for the following semester and should always apply
as early as possible. The deadlines are available in the Gator
Aid Application Guide and on SFA's web site at
http://www.ufsa.ufl.edu/sfa.
Short-Term Loans-The University also has an emergency
short-term loan program to help students meet temporary
financial needs related to educational expenses. Graduate
students may borrow up to $1,000 or the amount of in-state
tuition if they have an acceptable repayment source. Interest

Research and Teaching Services


Libraries
The Libraries of the University of Florida form the largest
information resource system in the state of Florida. While
the collections are extensive, they are not comprehensive
and graduate students will find it useful to supplement them
through a variety of services and cooperative programs
drawing upon the resources of many other libraries. The fol-
lowing entry describes the UF libraries, local collection
strengths and the physical distribution of collections among
campus libraries as well as the services available to assist stu-
dents and faculty in locating needed information.
The Libraries of the University of Florida consist of nine
libraries. Seven are in the system known as the George A.
Smathers Libraries of the University of Florida and two
(Health Sciences and Law) are attached to their respective
administrative units. All of the libraries serve all the
University's faculty and students, but each has a special mis-
sion to be the primary support of specific colleges and
degree programs. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of
research, scholars may find collections built in one library to
serve a specific discipline or constituency to be of great
importance to their own research in another discipline. It
most likely will be necessary to use more than one library to
discover all of the resources pertinent to a particular research
interest. All students and faculty are provided library service
upon presentation of the University of Florida Gator One
Card. This card is used to circulate books, to borrow
reserves, and to establish identity for other library services
such as Interlibrary Loan and remote access to databases.
The library home page (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu) pro-
vides a wealth of information about the Libraries as well as
links to a vast array of resources. The Libraries are integrat-
ing electronic collections and services as well as digitizing
materials from our Florida and other unique collections.
Indexes, abstracts, and other reference resources-including
hundreds of specialized databases-are increasingly available.
From the home page it is possible to connect to the full text
of articles in about 20,000 journals as well as thousands of
books, documents, maps, and manuscripts.
The library home page provides a link to the library cat-
alog that contains records for all the University of Florida
collections in all formats (except for some special archival,

map, and document collections that must be accessed
through catalogs and finding aids at the collection location).
It connects to lists of materials currently on course reserve
and provides links to a growing number of these materials
that are available in electronic form. The library home page
also provides access to the catalogs of the other State
University System libraries, the Center for Research
Libraries, and libraries in other states and foreign nations.
Subject guide websites provide guides to subject literature
and links to key resources and pertinent websites. The
library home page provides links to the pages of individual
campus libraries, lists library training opportunities, and
provides a great deal of information on services and policies.
It enables students to link to the libraries' chat reference
service, RefeXpress, and to electronic forms which allow
making suggestions, renewing materials, initiating interli-
brary loan requests, and recalling materials charged to other
borrowers.
Workstations in UF libraries provide access to this whole
array of electronic resources and services. They may also be
accessed readily from other campus workstations, from any
workstation with a University of Florida IP address (campus
location or off-campus GatorLink account) and by using a
proxy and your library card number (please see http://www.
uflib.ufl.edu/access.html for details on remote access).
Because of the disciplinary variation in research methods,
the policies enforced and the services offered may differ
from library to library. Most of the libraries have an adviso-
ry board consisting of faculty and students who advise on
the policies and services relating to their library. Information
on local policies is available at the circulation and reference
desks in each library and on the specific library's home page.
As is common in research libraries, library materials are
housed in a variety of locations depending upon discipline.
LibraryWest holds most of the humanities and social sci-
ence collections, as well as professional collections in sup-
port of business, health and human performance, and jour-
nalism, is closed for renovation from December 24, 2003,
until early 2006. Its Humanities and Social Sciences
Reference services and staff, current periodicals collection,
and video collection are temporarily located on the first
floor of the Smathers Library. Its general collections have
been moved to an off-campus storage location. Material
may be requested using an online form accessible from every
page in the UF Libraries Catalog. Retrieved materials are
delivered to the Marston Science Library where they may be
consulted and borrowed.
Smathers Library (also known as Library East) holds the
Latin American Collection and the Special Collections-rare
books and manuscripts, P. K. Yonge Library of Florida
History, and University Archives. While Library West is
under renovation, current periodicals, the video collection,
and Humanities & Social Sciences Reference are temporar-
ily located in Smathers.
Marston Science Library holds most of the agriculture,
science, and technology collections as well as the Map
Library and Documents Department, which is a regional
depository for U.S. federal government publications.

766,000 maps and geographic images, and nearly 18,000
computer files. The Libraries have built a number of nation-
ally significant research collections primarily in support of
graduate research programs. Among them are the Baldwin
Library of Children's Literature which is among the
world's greatest collections of literature for children (Special
Collections, Smathers Library); the Map and Imagery
Library which is an extensive repository of maps, atlases,
aerial photographs, and remote sensing imagery with partic-
ular collection strengths for the southeastern United States,
Florida, Latin America, and Africa south of the Sahara
(Marston Science Library, Level One); the Isser and Ray
Price Library of Judaica which is the largest collection of
its kind in the Southeast (Education Library); and the P.K
Yonge Library of Florida History, which is the state's pre-
eminent Floridiana collection and holds the largest North
American collection of Spanish colonial documents con-
cerning the southeastern United States as well as rich
archives of prominent Florida politicians (Special
Collections, Smathers Library).
The Libraries also have particularly strong holdings in
architectural preservation and 18th-century American archi-
tecture (Architecture and Fine Arts), late 19th- and early-
20th-century German state documents from 1850-1940
(Library West-request retrieval), Latin American art and
architecture (Architecture and Fine Arts and Smathers
Library), national bibliographies (Humanities & Social
Science Reference, Smathers Library), U.S. Census infor-
mation, especially in electronic format, and other U.S. doc-
uments (Documents Department, Marston Science
Library), the rural sociology of Florida and tropical and sub-
tropical agriculture collections (Marston Science Library),
and English and American literature (Library West collec-
tion-request retrieval).
Reference service is provided to library users in each
library and is also available via telephone, e-mail, and inter-
active chat. All of the libraries provide special services to
assist students and faculty with disabilities in their use of the
libraries; information is available at all circulation desks. At
the beginning of each semester, the Libraries offer orienta-
tion programs designed to teach those new to campus what

services are available and how to use them. Schedules are
posted in each library at the beginning of each term and are
available under the training session portion of the library
home page. Individual assistance is available at the refer-
ence desk in each library. In addition, instructional librarians
will work with faculty and teaching assistants to develop and
present course-specific library instruction sessions.
Instruction coordinators are available in Humanities and
Social Science Reference in Smathers Library, in Marston
Science Library, and in the branches.
Subject specialists, who work closely with faculty and
graduate students to select materials for the collections, also
advise graduate students and other researchers who need spe-
cialized bibliographic knowledge to define what information
resources are available locally and nationally to support spe-
cific research. A good time to consult the subject specialists
is when beginning work on a major research project or devel-
oping a working knowledge of another discipline. A list of
subject specialists is available at reference desks and via the
library home page. Users may schedule a meeting with the
appropriate specialist.
The Libraries memberships in the Research Libraries
Group and the Center for Research Libraries give faculty
and students access to many major scholarly collections. In
addition, the libraries are linked to major national and inter-
national databases. Many materials that are not held on cam-
pus can be quickly located and borrowed through one of the
cooperative programs to which the Libraries belong. Consult
with a reference librarian to take advantage of these services.
Publications describing specialized services are available at
reference and circulation desks throughout the Libraries.
Current information regarding library hours may be
obtained by selecting Library Hours and Phone Numbers
from the home page (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu) or by calling
the desired library.

Museum of Natural History
The Florida Museum of Natural History was created by
an act of the Legislature in 1917 as a department of the
University of Florida. Through its affiliation with the
University, it carries dual responsibility as the Florida muse-
um and the University museum.
The public education and exhibits division of the
Museum is in Powell Hall, on Hull Road at the western edge
of campus, situated between the Harn Museum of Art and
the Center for the Performing Arts. Completed in 1997,
Powell Hall is devoted exclusively to permanent and travel-
ing exhibits, educational programs, and special events.
Powell Hall is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays and holidays. The
Museum is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is
no admission charge. The research and collections division
of the Museum is located in Dickinson Hall at the corner of
Museum Road and Newell Drive.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthro-
pology and natural science. Under the director are three
administrative units: Office of the Director is responsible for
administrative oversight as well as fund-raising and develop-
ment; Department of Natural History houses the state's nat-
ural history collections and is staffed by scientists and sup-
port personnel concerned with the study of modern and fos-
sil plants and animals, and historic and prehistoric people
and their cultures; Exhibits and Public Programs in Powell
Hall is staffed by specialists in the interpretation of natural
history through exhibits and educational programs. The sci-
entific and educational faculty (curators) hold appointments
in appropriate University of Florida academic academic
units. Through these appointments, they participate in both
undergraduate and graduate teaching programs.
The William W. and Nadine M. McGuire Center for
Lepidoptera Research is attached to the existing Florida

great many visiting entomologists from around the world.
The Swisher Memorial Sanctuary and the Ordway
Preserve are adjacent pieces of land totaling some 9,500
acres. The land includes an array of habitats including
marsh, lakes, sandhills, and mesic hammocks. Jointly
administered by the School of Forest Resources and
Conservation and the Florida Museum of Natural History,
this area supports several research activities centering on the
ecology of threatened species and the restoration of the
native longleafpine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and dis-
sertation research projects consistent with the aims of the
preserve are actively encouraged.
The Randell Research Center at the Pineland archeologi-
cal site near Fort Myers, Florida, is dedicated to learning and
teaching the archeology, history, and ecology of Southwest
Florida.
The Herbarium of the University of Florida is also a divi-
sion of the Museum. It contains over 240,000 specimens of
vascular plants and 170,000 specimens of nonvascular
plants. In addition, the herbarium operates a modern gas
chromatographic/mass spectrometer laboratory for the
study and identification of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's hold-
ings. Materials are constantly being added to the collections
both through gifts from friends and as a result of research
activities of the Museum staff. The archaeological and eth-
nological collections are noteworthy, particularly in the abo-
riginal and Spanish colonial material remains from the
southeastern United States and the Caribbean. There are
extensive study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks,
reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate fossils,
plant fossils, and a bioacoustic archive consisting of original
recordings of animal sounds. Opportunities are provided for
students, staff, and visiting scientists to use the collections.
Research and field work are presently sponsored in the
archaeological, paleontological, and zoological fields.
Students interested in these specialties should make applica-
tion to the appropriate academic units. Graduate assistant-
ships are available in the Museum in areas emphasized in its
research programs.

Career Resource Center
The Career Resource Center (CRC), located on the west
side of the J. Wayne Reitz Union at the first floor level, is the
central agency for career planning, employment assistance,
and cooperative education and internships for University of
Florida students. The Center provides a full range of servic-
es for all graduate students and alumni seeking employment
opportunities. The CRC also works closely with the
Academic Advising Center to assist students in identifying a

Graduate students wishing to explore career interests, gain
experience through cooperative education assignments or
internship, organize their job search campaign, or gain skills
in portfolio development, resume preparation, and interview
techniques are invited to visit the Center and utilize its serv-
ices. The Center has an extensive career library, with employ-
er recruiting materials, directories of employers, and other
career skills information, and its "immediate job openings"
section averages over 600 possible openings a week. For
those graduate students seeking individual assistance in
resolving career and academic problems, the Center has a
number of career counselors and advisers available for per-
sonal appointments.
The World Wide Web-The Career Resource Center and
the world of jobs and career information can be accessed via
CRC's World Wide Web page at http://www.crc.ufl.edu/.
This website is as near as the closest UF computer lab,
through terminals in the CRC library, or if web access is
available, from a personal computer. It contains a full spec-
trum of information, services, and direct web links, includ-
ing details about the Career Resource Center, its mission,
location, and hours of operation; descriptions of CRC pro-
grams and services for students, career fairs, and Career
Showcase (including a current list of employers attending); a

interviewing/on-campus recruiting (including signing up for
interviews); and information for alumni. For those in the
immediate job market, there are direct links to a wide vari-
ety of job posting services, and registering with the Gator
Career Link System enables participation in on-campus
interviews and resume referral via the Gator Locator resume
database.
A significant on-campus job interview program with rep-
resentatives from business, industry, government, and edu-
cation is conducted by the Center. These major employers
come to campus seeking graduating students in most career
fields. Graduate students are encouraged to register early and
to participate in the on-campus interview program. The
Center also sponsors a number of Career Days and
Showcases during the academic year, which bring employers
to campus to talk to students about careers and jobs. These
sessions are open to all majors and are an ideal way for grad-
uate students to make contact with potential employers.
CRC also hosts Graduate and Professional School Day in
the fall, bringing to campus representatives from up to 100


colleges and universities around the country. Students may
gather information and ask questions about various gradu-
ate and professional education programs offered by these
institutions.
The Center also provides reproduction and distribution
services of professional placement files (qualifications
records, vitae, resumes, and personal references). A modest
charge is assessed to cover labor and materials for copy serv-
ices and mailing of these credential packages to employers.

Counseling Center
The Counseling Center offers services to currently
enrolled graduate students for personal, career, and educa-
tional concerns. Professional psychologists and counselors
provide short-term individual, couples, and group counsel-
ing. There is no charge for the Center's confidential servic-
es. Topics of services for graduate students often include
assistance with concerns related to academic success, time
and stress management skills, anxiety and depression, per-
sonal and family relationships, adjustment to the culture,
and other issues associated with transition.

students at all phases of their graduate careers, from admis-
sion through degree certification and graduation. The Office
is responsible for keeping the official graduate student record
and ensuring that all Graduate Council and University poli-
cies are followed.
It is the responsibility of the student and the supervi-
sory chairman to notify the Graduate School in writing
of any changes that have been made in the structure of
the supervisory committee. Changes to a student's com-
mittee are permitted through the published midpoint
deadline of the term in which the student submits a
degree application provided that the defense has not
occurred. No changes are allowed after the defense. The
student must contact the major academic unit for pro-
cedural details.


Graduate Student Council
The Graduate Student Council was formed in 1989 to
foster interaction among graduate students on campus and
to provide an agency for the coordination of graduate stu-
dent activities and programs. The GSC seeks the improve-
ment of graduate student education through active and per-
manent communication with the Graduate School, the
University administration, and the Florida Board of
Trustees. It also represents the interests of graduate students
at the student government, administration, local, state, and
national levels. GSC is a dues-paying member of the

Off-Campus Housing
The purpose of the Off-Campus Housing Service is to
assist University of Florida students, faculty, and staff in
obtaining adequate off-campus housing accommodations.
The Off-Campus Housing Service is a listing and referral
agency for rental housing of all types. It is not an enforce-
ment agency. It does not make rental reservations. The off-
campus housing information packet is available online at
http://www.housing.ufl.edu.

entrance to the Housing Office.

Ombudsman
The Office of the University Ombudsman was estab-
lished by the state legislature and reports directly to the
President. The purpose of the office is to assist students in
resolving problems and conflicts. The office provides an for-
mal avenue of redress for students' problems and grievances,
which arise in the course of interacting with the institution.
By considering the problems in an unbiased way, the
Ombudsman works to achieve a fair resolution and works to
protect the rights of all involved properties.
The Office of the Ombudsman deals with student con-
cerns of an academic nature. Students are required to first
contact the instructor, the academic unit chair, and the col-
lege dean before seeking assistance from the Ombudsman,
although instances do exist where contact with the
University Ombudsman first is beneficial.
In many instances, nonacademic issues can be easily and
readily resolved for students merely by providing an oppor-
tunity for direct communication and effective listening. For
other problems not related to academic issues, the Office of
the Ombudsman assists students in making contact with the
appropriate campus office for dealing with their problems.

HIV Infection-The University's policy is to assess the
needs of students, faculty or staff with HIV infection on a
case-by-case basis. With permission of the affected individ-
ual, the director of the Student Health Care Center will
assist in the coordination of resources and services.
The confidentiality of an individual's HIV status, as well
as the individual's welfare, is respected. Breach of confiden-
tiality of information obtained by a University employee is
an official University capacity may result in disciplinary
action.
Based on current medical information concerning risk of
infection, the university does not isolate persons with HIC
infection or AIDS from other individuals in the education-
al or work setting. Furthermore, the university supports the
continued participation, to the fullest extend reasonably
possible, of these individuals in the campus educational/
work environment. It is also the policy of the university to
provide education that seeks to prevent the spread of HIV
infection. Those individuals risk for the HIV infection are
encouraged to get tested; those who are infected are urged to
seek treatment. With current advances in HIV/AIDS treat-
ment, early intervention is crucial to maintaining well-being
and delaying complications of the illness. In keeping with
the Americans with Disabilities Act, the university considers
HIV/AIDS to be a disability. Students or employees who
are disabled with HIV infection or AIDS can utilize existing
support services.

The Department of Agricultural Education and Communi-
cation offers major work for the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy
and Master of Science. The requirements for each degree are
described in the General Information section of this catalog.
The Ph.D. program is designed to prepare graduates for
domestic and international teaching, research, extension, admin-
istrative, and leadership positions in both the public and private
sectors. Areas of specialization include teaching and learning,
communication, leadership and volunteer development, and
adult and extension education. Courses are taught from an agri-
cultural and natural resources context and are broadly applicable
in education, business, government, and agency settings.
The Master of Science degree includes four curriculum options
in the graduate program. The agricultural communication option
prepares students for professional communication careers in or
dealing with agriculture, agribusiness, or natural resources or pro-
vides a foundation for further study at the doctoral level. It is
intended primarily for students who enter with a bachelor's
degree in journalism, agricultural journalism, advertising, broad-
casting, public relations, or related fields. The agricultural leader-
ship education specialization is designed to prepare students for
educational leadership, training, and outreach positions in agri-
cultural, extension, community, and governmental agencies. The
agricultural extension option is designed to enhance the careers of
those employed in the Cooperative Extension Service, including
family and consumer sciences, agriculture, 4-H, and other relat-
ed areas. Students gain valuable knowledge and experience in
designing, implementing, and evaluating educational programs.
The agricultural education option gives the student tremendous
depth in the teaching and learning process. Students can be cer-
tified to teach in the state of Florida through this program.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored in agri-
cultural education and communication as an undergraduate.
However, students with an insufficient background in either agri-
cultural education or technical agriculture will need to include
some basic courses in these areas in their program.
The Department offers a combined bachelor's/master's program.

These members of the faculty of Florida State University (*)
and Florida Atlantic University (+) are also members of the
Graduate Faculty of the University of Florida and participate in
the doctoral degree program in the University of Florida
Department of Anthropology.
The Department of Anthropology offers graduate work leading
to the Master of Arts (thesis or nonthesis option) and Doctor of
Philosophy degrees. Complete descriptions of the requirements
for these degrees are provided in the General Information section
of this catalog. Graduate training is offered in applied anthropol-
ogy, social and cultural anthropology, archeology, anthropological
linguistics, and physical/biological anthropology. There is a gen-
eral option and an interdisciplinary one. The general option
allows students to concentrate at the M.A. level on the integration
of the four subfields of anthropology and to specialize at the
Ph.D. level. The interdisciplinary alternative allows students to 1)
concentrate on one or two subfields of anthropology along with
one or more areas outside of anthropology and 2) begin early spe-
cialization and integration of a subfield of anthropology and an
outside field. More information about these two options is found
in the department publication on graduate programs and policies
that may be obtained by writing directly to the Department.
The Department of Anthropology generally requires a mini-
mum score of 1100 on the Graduate Record Examination and a
3.2 overall grade point average based on a 4.0 system.
Candidates for the M.A. are required to take ANG 6930,
Proseminar in Cultural and Linguistic Anthropology and
Proseminar in Biological and Archeological Anthropology. No
more than six hours of ANG 6971 will be counted toward the
minimum requirements for the M.A. with thesis. Knowledge of a
foreign language may be required by the student's supervisory
committee. Other requirements for the program are listed in this
catalog under Requirements for Master' Degrees.
Students enrolled in the M.A. program who wish to continue
their studies for a Ph.D. must apply to the Department for certi-
fication. Minimum requirements will normally include 1) a min-
imum grade point average of 3.5 in all graduate anthropology
courses and a minimum of 3.2 in other courses, 2) a grade of pass
on the comprehensive M.A. examination, and 3) a thesis, report,
or paper judged to be of excellent quality by the student's super-
visory committee. In most cases, candidates for the Ph.D. must
achieve competency in a language other than English. Entering
students who already have earned a master's degree may apply for
direct admission to the doctoral program.
The deadline for receiving completed applications for admis-
sion into the graduate program is January 5 (for fall semester
admission only). The Department strongly encourages early
applications.

Doctor of Philosophy- The College offers a program leading
to the Doctor of Philosophy degree in design, construction,and
planning. Areas of specialization within this program include
architecture, building construction, interior design, landscape
architecture, and urban and regional planning. For information,
write to the Ph.D. Director, College of Design, Construction,
and Planning Doctoral Program, 331 ARCH, Box 115701.
Master of Architecture-The School of Architecture offers
graduate work leading to the first professional degree, Master of
Architecture. During graduate studies, each student has the
opportunity to focus on one or more areas, including design, his-
tory and theory, urban design, preservation, structures, and tech-
nology. The student's overall college experience, both undergrad-
uate and graduate programs, is intended to be a complete unit of
professional education leading to practice in architecture or relat-
ed fields. Students entering the program at the University of
Florida will matriculate in one of the following tracks:
Baccalaureate in Architecture Base-For those students who have
a four-year baccalaureate degree from an accredited architectural
program, two years in residence (52 credits) are normally required
for completion of the Master of Architecture degree; notification
of program length is part of the letter of acceptance and is deter-
mined by portfolio and transcript review. ARC 6241, ARC 6355,
and ARC 6356 are required of all graduate students in this track
and are prerequisites for the required thesis or master's project.
Course sequences in history and theory, technology, structures,
and practice must also be completed.
Baccalaureate in Related Degree Base-For those students who
have a baccalaureate degree with an architecture or related major
(interior design, landscape architecture) and who have completed
4 or 6 architecture or design studies, three years of residence (83
credits, approximately) are normally required for completion of
the Master of Architecture degree; notification of program length
is part of the letter of acceptance and is determined by portfolio
and transcript review. ARC 4073, ARC 4074, ARC 6241, ARC
6355, and ARC 6356 are required of all graduate students in this
track and are prerequisites for the required thesis or master's proj-


ect. (Undergraduate courses-3000 and 4000 level in the major do
not count toward the minimum requirements for the graduate
degree.) Course sequences in history and theory, materials and
methods, technology, structures, and practice must be completed.
Baccalaureate in Nonrelated Degree Base-For those students
who have a baccalaureate degree in a nonrelated academic area
and have completed less than 4 design studies courses, four years
of residence (112 credits, approximately) are normally required
for completion of the Master of Architecture degree; notification
of program length is part of the letter of acceptance and is deter-
mined by portfolio and transcript review. ARC 4071, ARC 4072,
ARC 4073, ARC 4074, ARC 6241, ARC 6355, and ARC 6356
are required of all graduate students in this track and are prereq-
uisites for the required thesis or project. Undergraduate courses-
3000 and 4000 level-in the major do not count toward the 52-
hour minimum requirements for the graduate degree. Course
sequences in history and theory, materials and methods, technol-
ogy, structures, and practice must be completed.
Accredited Five-Year Professional Base-For those students hold-
ing a baccalaureate degree in architecture from an accredited five-
year professional degree program, a one-year degree program is
available. In these cases, a specialized curriculum that compli-
ments the needs of the applicant is developed. The minimum reg-
istration is 30 credits; however, it may increase if transcript
reviews reveal further course work is needed to meet registration
and curriculum requirements. ARC 6356 is required and is pre-
requisite for the required thesis or master's project.
Most states require that an individual intending to become an
architect hold an accredited degree. Two types of degrees are
accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board: (1)
the Bachelor of Architecture,which requires a minimum of five
years of study, and (2) the Master of Architecture, which requires
a minimum of three years of study after an unrelated bachelor's
degree or two years after a related preprofessional bachelor's
degree. These professional degrees are structured to educate those
who aspire to registration and licensure to practice as architects.
Student Work-The College may retain student work for the
purpose of record, exhibition, or instruction.
Master of Science in Architectural Studies- The M.S.A.S. is
a nonprofessional degree for those students who wish to engage
in advanced investigations in specialized areas of architectural his-
tory, theory, technology, design, preservation, or practice.
Students with a bachelor's degree in any discipline from an
accredited university are eligible to apply to this program; the
proposed area of focus should be precisely defined in the applica-
tion. This is a three-to-four-semester program (32 hours mini-
mum) that includes a thesis. (No more than six hours of ARC
6971 may be counted in the minimum credit hours for the
degree.) Interdisciplinary study is encouraged.
The School sponsors special curricula in architecture to
enhance the academic program. Preservation Institute: Caribbean,
Preservation Institute: Nantucket, and Vicenza Institute of
Architecture (Italy) accept students, not only from the University
of Florida, but from academic circles throughout the United
States and the world for year-round study. All students in gradu-
ate architecture programs at the University of Florida are offered
the opportunity to apply for one or more of these programs.
Complete descriptions of the requirements for the M.Arch.,
M.S.A.S., and Ph.D. degrees are provided in the General
Information section of this catalog.
