GRADUJAIE SCHOOL


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 '.,,: ....
to the local and global community for improving the qual-
ity 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 ....: i1 ,: to success and leader-
ship 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 .. .. ,. in their
chosen discipline, for abilities to solve problems in new
environments, and for high standards of excellence in
scholarly activity and professional practice.
T.,;!,, ., scholarly, creative achievements and service
that contribute to improvement of human society and
the natural environment.
A highly qualified, diverse student population.
Strong disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs that
!., graduates to assume their roles in a changing
world.
Evidence of service in their disciplines by students and
faculty at state, national, and international levels.


Organization
The Graduate School consists of the Dean, Associate
Dean, Graduate Council, and the Graduate Faculty. General
policies and standards of the Graduate School are estab-
lished 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-
grans of the various i:= .. and divisions of the University.


The responsibility for the detailed operations of graduate
programs is vested in the individual ~ :1 schools, divi-
sions, and academic units. In most of the i : an assis-
tant dean or other administrator is directly responsible for
graduate study in that,. =i
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 appointed
by the academic unit in which the graduate program is
located with the approval of the graduate dean.
All faculty members who serve on supervisory committees
or direct master's theses and doctoral dissertations must first
be 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 2003-04, the total number of graduate degrees awarded
was 3,616 in more than 100 fields. The .-. r:. .. of Ph.D.
degrees, after the initial rapid growth, remained relatively
static during the early 1980s but increased significantly
between 1987-88 and 1993-94, growing from 304 to 424.
In 2003-04, the University of Florida awarded 563 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 degree and program name appear on the stu-
dent's transcript. .' : ... 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 --..II as the degree and program, may appear
on the student transcript. Concentrations are listed in italics
below their -. ...',.. 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
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 designa-
tion used by academic units to indicate areas of research or
scholarly strength, and has no formal '".. ,. --. 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 II it is referred to as a
multi- l: program.
Combined Degree Program-This is a combined bach-
elor'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 grad-
uate 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-This is course of study
leading to a graduate degree with more than one institution
authorized to provide course work.
Catalog Year-The set of academic requirements a
student must fulfill is based on the rules in force in the aca-
demic year of initial enrollment in a degree seeking status or,
if the student takes time off, the academic year of readmis-
sion. This is known as the catalog year.
Joint Degree Program-A course of study, pursued
simultaneously, leading to a graduate degree and a profes-
sional degree is called a joint degree program. Normally 12
credits of professional courses are counted toward the gradu-
ate degree and 12 credits of graduate courses are counted
toward the professional degree. Individual academic units
ili determine whether or not a joint degree program is


appropriate. 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 pro-
gram is initiated by the student and requires prior approval
of each academic 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 meeting the requirements for the second
master's degree.
Co-Major-This is a course of study 11 :."' two major
programs for one Ph.D. degree. Each co-major 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
counted toward the professional degree. Individual aca-
demic units will determine whether a joint degree program
is appropriate. Joint programs established prior to January
1, 2003, may have other requirements.
Any graduate student wishing to participate in a joint
program 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
registration 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
graduate degree requirements. See graduate coordinator for
details.


Combined Bachelor's/Master's
Degree Programs
The University of Florida offers a number of bachelor's/
master's programs for superior students in which 12 cred-
its of graduate-level courses are counted for both degrees.
Courses that dual count must satisfy the requirements
listed under the Transfer of Credit section of this catalog.
Interested students should consult with their graduate coor-
dinators 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








hosting institutions, receives a waiver of admission require-
ments and a guarantee of acceptance of earned resident cred-
its by the sponsoring institutions. The program will enable
a graduate student to take advantage of the special resources
available 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 interdisci-
plinary instruction, research, and outreach related to Africa.
In cooperation with participating academic units through-
out the University, the Center offers a Certificate in African
Studies at both the master's and doctoral levels. The curricu-
lum provides a broad foundation for students preparing for
teaching or other professional careers in which a knowledge
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
compete 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
provides direct support for African library acquisitions to
meet the instructional and research needs of its faculty and
students. The Africana Collection numbers over 120,000
volumes and 500 periodicals. The Map Library contains


NONTRADITIONAL PROGRAMS


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 another
academic unit that closely represents their background and
interest. Course work may be chosen from several related
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
distributed over at least two academic units other than the
candidate's major academic unit to provide the student with
the background necessary to function in multidisciplinary
teams and in association with professionals from other
disciplines. Individuals with a strong biological background
are encouraged 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
faculty member representing the agroforestry interest. This
faculty member, as designated by the Agroforestry Program
Advisory Committee, will counsel the student on the selec-
tion of courses and the research topic.
Further information maybe obtained from theAgroforestry
Program Leader at 330 Newins-Ziegler Hall, (352) 846-
0880, fax (352) 846-1322, and e-mail pknair@ufl.edu.





I GENERAL INFORMATION


Animal Molecular and Cell Biology
The interdisciplinary concentration in Animal Molecular
and Cell Biology (AMCB) provides graduate students in the
animal and veterinary sciences with an understanding of
principles of molecular and cell biology and their application
to animal health and production. Emphasis is placed on par-
ticipation in molecular and cell biology research and on pro-
viding an intellectual environment in which cross-fertiliza-
tion among disciplines can flourish. Graduate Faculty from
the Departments of Animal Sciences, Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology, Chemistry, and the College of Veterinary
Medicine participate in the program. The AMCB affords
graduate students access to diverse research facilities required
for studies in cellular and molecular biology, reproductive
biology, virology, immunology, and endocrinology. Facilities
include those for recombinant DNA research, experimental
surgery, in vitro culture of cells, tissue and organ explants,
manipulation of embryos, vaccine production, and recombi-
nant protein engineering.
Ph.D. degrees are awarded through participating aca-
demic units with the interdisciplinary concentration in
animal molecular and cell biology. Typical entering students
will have a strong background in the animal or veterinary
sciences. Graduate degree programs are designed by each
student's faculty advisory committee, headed by the major
adviser who is affiliated with the AMCB. All students
are required to complete a core curriculum and have the
opportunity to obtain cross-disciplinary training through
rotations in laboratories of participating faculty and partici-
pate in the AMCB seminar series.
Requirements for admission into the AMCB are the same
as for the faculty adviser's home academic unit and college.
Financial assistance for graduate study is available through
assistantships and fellowships from sources within individual
academic units and the AMCB. Contact Dr. P. J. Hansen,
Department of Animal Sciences for more information, at
hansen@animal.ufl.edu.


Biological Sciences
The Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research con-
ducts research on all aspects of the biology of sea turtles.
Researchers at the Center, in collaboration with students
and faculty of various academic units, take a multidisci-
plinary approach to address the complex problems of sea
turtle biology and conservation. Scientists from the Center
have investigated questions of sea turtle biology around the
world, from the molecular level to the ecosystem level, from
studies of population structure based on mitochondrial
DNA to the effects of ocean circulation patterns on the
movements and distribution of sea turtles. Long-term field
studies of the Center are primarily conducted at two research
stations in the Bahamas and the Azores. For further informa-
tion, contact the Director, Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle
Research, 223 Bartram.
The Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience is a
University of Florida research center for biomedical research
and biotechnology. Since its 1974 founding, the Whitney
Lab has been dedicated to the use of marine model animals


for studying fundamental problems in biology and the
application of that knowledge to issues of human health,
natural resources, and the environment.
The academic staff of the Whitney Laboratory consists
of eight tenure-track and three nontenure-track faculty
members, together with 70 associates, students, and visiting
scientists. Dr. Peter A. V. Anderson is the director.
Fields of research conducted at the Whitney Laboratory
include chemosensory and visual physiology and biochem-
istry, ion channel structure and function, neurogenom-
ics, synaptogenesis and synaptic physiology, protein-lipid
interactions, physiology and evolution of neurotransmitter
pathways, membrane pumps and transporters, and regula-
tion of ciliary mechanisms. This research employs the tech-
niques of modern cell and molecular biology, for which the
Laboratory is particularly well equipped and recognized.
Research at Whitney Laboratory attracts graduate students
and scientists from all over the United States and abroad.
Students enroll in the graduate programs of academic units
on campus and complete their course work prior to moving
to the Whitney Laboratory, where they conduct their dis-
sertation research under the supervision of resident faculty.
An NSF undergraduate research training program at the
Whitney Laboratory is also available for 10-week periods.

Chemical Physics

The Center for Chemical Physics, with the par-
ticipation of the faculty of the Departments of Chemistry,
Physics, and Chemical Engineering, is concerned with
graduate education and research in the theoretical, experi-
mental, and computational aspects of problems in the bor-
derline between chemistry and physics. Graduate students
join one of the above academic units and follow a special

degree, a Certificate in Chemical Physics. For information,
contact the Director, Prof Valeria Kleiman, Chemistry
Laboratory Building.









Ecological Engineering
The Graduate Certificate in Ecological Engineering
is for graduate engineering students wishing to develop
expertise in ecological solutions to engineering problems.
Students interested in the certificate must apply for admis-
sion through the Department of Environmental Engineering
Sciences. The certificate program is open to individuals in
any graduate program who hold an undergraduate engineer-
ing degree, or who complete additional undergraduate engi-
neering 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 credits of graduate course credit may count toward
the minimum requirements for the graduate degree. The
student's terminal project, master's thesis, or an individual
studies project may serve to satisfy the ecological engineer-
ing project requirement. For more information, contact the
graduate 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 bound-
aries for the purpose of property recognition and taxation
and regulation, analyzing land and land-cover properties for
both resource inventories and scientific studies, and siting
commercial enterprises.
Users and producers of GIS include engineers, geogra-
phers, urban and regional planners, biologists and ecolo-
gists, land resource managers, anthropologists and archae-
ologists, sociologists, public health professionals and medi-
cal researchers, county land-management and property
tax assessors, law enforcement officers, land-development
companies, 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


NONTRADITIONAL PROGRAMS


set of courses and activities that would allow graduate
students to become experts in the creation, study, and use
of geographic information. Such graduates would be in
strong positions to meet future regulatory requirements
for certification as professionals. Structurally, the ICGIS
has established a five-category curriculum that would add
several courses to the standard M.S., M.A., M.E., or Ph.D.
requirements and would result in official recognition of
having completed the GIS concentration by statements on
transcripts and a certificate

Gerontological Studies
The Center for Gerontological Studies offers the minor
in gerontology, the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology,
and a college certificate in Geriatric Care Management.
These programs are completed in conjunction with the
student's graduate degree, for master's, specialist, and doc-
toral students. Graduate students may complete one or all of
these programs. All programs require GEY 6646, an inter-
disciplinary core course, that provides a broad introduction
to the critical 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 programs all over campus but their degrees are
predominantly in the fields of nursing, psychology, occupa-
tional or physical therapy, rehabilitation, sociology, exercise
and sport sciences, 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
interests. The Graduate Certificate in Gerontology requires
completion 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 stu-
dents planning to do substantive research in the field of
aging as part of their graduate work.

Historic Preservation
Historic Preservation addresses sites, landscapes, struc-
tures, districts, and intangible heritage as a means to
safeguard, celebrate, and adapt valuable resources that






I GENERAL INFORMATION


range from decades to centuries old. While the profession-
alization of the field occurred during the latter half of the
twentieth century, spurred on by passage of the National
Historic Preservation Act in 1966, the twenty-first century
will witness significant expansion of the field to address
smart growth, sustainability, and economic development
initiatives. Career opportunities include preservation and
redevelopment work within architecture, building construc-
tion, interior design, landscape architecture, and urban
and regional planning, as well as preservation consultant,
preservation contractor, preservation researcher, Main Street
program director, site manager, lawyer, archeologist, cul-
tural resource manager, historian, real estate professional,
and policy administrator among others
The Interdisciplinary Concentration and Certificate
in Historic Preservation (ICCHP) integrates resources
from throughout the campus to address the diverse topics
relevant to the field. Thus, the ICCHP establishes a set
of courses that allow graduate students to gain expertise
in research and application of historic preservation in the
United States and abroad. Depending upon the student's
career goals and background, this can include recognizing,
documenting, and protecting historic structures and sites;
rehabilitation and restoration technologies; and/or explor-
ing emerging and related specializations such as community
development and sustainable development.
The interdisciplinary curriculum structure draws upon
course work providing 12 graduate credit hours for the
master's and 15 graduate credit hours for the Ph.D. of
specialized study in historic preservation. Completion of
these credits would result in official recognition of having
completed the concentration by statements on participating
students' transcripts and by a certificate.

specialized discipline.
Topical specializations cluster course work and research
around a thematic field focusing on contemporary Latin
American problems, such as Andean studies, Brazilian
studies, Caribbean studies, international communications,
religion and society, and tropical conservation and develop-
ment. This option builds on prior professional or admin-
istrative experiences and prepares students for technical
and professional work related to Latin America and the
Caribbean.









Additional requirements for both options are (1) 15
credits of Latin American area and language courses in two
other academic units outside the specialization, including
one seminar LAS 6938; (2) reading, writing, and speak-
ing 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
institutions, international organizations, government or
nonprofit 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-division
undergraduate work; (3) a combined verbal-quantitative

in research and curriculum related to the tropical environ-
ment and its development.
Research-International agricultural development assis-
tance contracts frequently have research components. The
Center assists in the coordination of this research.
Minor in Tropical Agriculture-An interdisciplinary
minor in tropical agriculture is available at both the master's
and doctoral levels for students majoring in agriculture,
forestry, and other fields where knowledge of the tropics is
relevant. The minor may include courses treating specific
aspects of the tropics such as natural resource management
(e.g., soils, water, biodiversity), climate, agricultural produc-
tion, and the languages and cultures of those who live in
tropical countries.
Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA)-A program
emphasizing breadth in topics relevant to tropical agri-
culture (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 program
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 lan-
guage abilities and work experience in a foreign country are
strongly 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
featuring 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
The Tropical Conservation and Development Program
(TCD), located in the Center for Latin American Studies,
offers an interdisciplinary graduate certificate and gradu-
ate concentration focused on integrative approaches to
conservation and development in Latin America and other
tropical regions. Both the certificate and concentration are
open to students enrolled in master's and Ph.D. programs in
TCD's affiliate 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.






I GENERAL INFORMATION


Course work for the certificate and the concentration
includes social science theory, principles of tropical ecology,
patterns and trends of tropical resource use and conserva-
tion, and research methods. TCD core courses also allow
students to gain essential practical skills. Emphasis is on
communication and presentation techniques, grant writing,
proposal writing, and fundraising; facilitation and con-
flict management; participatory methods for research and
project implementation; and project design, analysis, and
evaluation. Summer research, practitioner experiences, and
field-based training programs provide learning opportuni-
ties outside the classroom.
Upon completion of the certificate or concentration,
students 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,
Comparative Law, Botany, Food and Resource Economics,
Forest Resources and Conservation, Geography, Geological
Sciences, 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 can earn a certificate in TCD by com-
pleting 12 credits of approved course work-two interdisci-
plinary core courses and one course each in tropical ecology
and social science. Ph.D. students can earn a certificate
by completing 15 credits of approved course work-three
interdisciplinary core courses and one course each in tropi-
cal 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 may 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
faculty member to make this judgment, the student must
articulate in writing 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.

sortium 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., PCB 6357C or AGG 6933. The University of Florida
does not require tuition for OTS courses. Registration
is on the host campus. However, students 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, Dr. Robert
Holt and Dr. Hugh Popenoe, located in 111 Bartram Hall
and 2169 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 logisti-
cal 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
science and policy for students at the master's and doctoral
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
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 M.S.
or Ph.D. degree. A core curriculum (15 credits for M.S.
and 18 credits for Ph.D.) provides the opportunity for
interdisciplinary training in four broad subject areas: (1)
wetlands science (1 course each in wetlands ecology, wetland
hydrology, and wetlands biogeochemistry), (2) wetlands sys-
tems, (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
concentration 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
students 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 aca-
demic units with the interdisciplinary concentration in
women's and gender studies. Study plans are designed by
each student's committee, headed by the supervisory chair
who is affiliated with women's/gender studies.


ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 oflnstruction sections
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. A listing of websites for academic units is avail-
able at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/students/college-depart-
ment-links.html. 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 curriculum. For some academic units, and in more
advanced levels 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 recommenda-
tion, are reviewed by the academic unit, recommended by
the college, 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
accredited college or university. Two copies of the official
transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universi-
ties 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 supplementary tran-
scripts are required as soon as they are available for any work
completed after application for admission has been made.





GENERAL INFORMATION
20
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 teach-
ing and research. The University and its components will
benefit from the richness of a multicultural student body,
faculty, and staff who can learn from one another. Such
diversity will empower and inspire respect and understand-
ing 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 com-
munity. 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 admis-
sion 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 aca-
demic 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 consid-
ered in regard to admission. Applicants with a previous
graduate or professional degree or equivalent from a region-
ally 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
minimum requirements are 465. Applicants should contact
the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for
additional information.
Graduate Study in Law-Students applying to the
graduate program leading to the degree Master of Laws in
Taxation must hold the Juris Doctor or equivalent degree.


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 register
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 speci-
fied number of graduate courses taken as postbaccalaureate
students, 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.

shall require evidence such as a voter registration,
driver's license, automobile registration, or any other
relevant materials as evidence that the applicant has
maintained 12 months residence immediately prior
to qualification as a bona fide domicile, rather than
for the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary
residence or abode incident to enrollment in an
institution of higher learning. To determine if the
student is a dependent child, the university shall
require evidence such as copies of the aforemen-
tioned documents. In addition, the university may
require a notarized copy of the parent's IRS return.






GENERAL INFORMATION
22
"Resident student" for tuition purposes classification
shall also be construed to include students to whom
an 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 clas-
sification of a student as a resident and domiciliary
entitled 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
requested 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 edu-
cation, may apply for and be granted classification as
a "resident for tuition purposes"; provided, however,
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-
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 are
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 pursu-
ant to Section 120.68 ES.
(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 fal-
sity, 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 included
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 pur-
pose of assessing tuition, residency and nonresidency sta-
tus 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//statutes/. Staff members in the
Office of the University Registrar review applications for
Florida resident status, together with supportive documen-
tation, and 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
applications 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 applica-
tions 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
examination will be used as a diagnostic tool for placement in
appropriate 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
assignments. 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 communication 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 general 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
GRE. Students may register for the locally administered
SPEAK test with the Academic Spoken English Office,
3340 Turlington Hall.

basis of disability in the recruitment and admission of
students, in the recruitment and employment of faculty
and staff, or in the operation of any of its programs and
activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations. The

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% 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% Disabled Veterans
(service connected), and Chapter 1606 for personnel 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 information 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
submit a completed Application for Educational Benefits to
the Office of the University Registrar. This office will then
certify 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 determina-
tion of eligibility based on official service records, evidence
submitted 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





GENERAL INFORMATION
24
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
credits during summer term C.
A full-time graduate load for DVA or Social Security ben-
efits is 9 credits per semester.


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 aver-
age 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
following reasons: (1) to provide a means for students not
seeking 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 graduate
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 graduate
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
completing a teacher certification program. Other appli-
cants may be admitted to postbaccalaureate status only
for a limited 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
master's program in the College of Education. More infor-
mation is available on the Registrar's website admissions.ufl.edu/grad/postbacc.html>.


Nondegree Registration
Nondegree enrollment is restricted to participants in
special 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 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 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
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-
status-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 ask their academic-unit offices
about the availability of assistantships and the procedure
for making application. Prospective students should write
directly to their major academic units. Early inquiry is essen-
tial in order to be assured of meeting application deadlines.
Appointments are made on the recommendation 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 eligibil-
ity 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 insur-
ance 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/students/faqs-
introduction.html.
At the beginning of their second year of enrollment,
students 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/


ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 M.F.A.
The Alumni Graduate Fellowships focus on identifying
and supporting students who seek the Ph.D. degree or
selected terminal master's degrees (the M.FA. 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 sti-
pend 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
standards of academic achievement and participation in
University life.
Applicants for Alumni Fellowships apply through the
academic unit of their major field of study. Successful
applicants will have outstanding undergraduate preparation,
a strong commitment to their field of study, and demon-
strated potential in research and creative activities.


Named Presidential Fellowship
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/presidential.html.
The Graduate School sponsors fellowships named for
former 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

26
case in which they are entering a Ph.D. (or other terminal
degree) program.
Stipends are normally $4000. Continuation of the Grinter
beyond the first year is contingent 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.

program is designed to prepare eligible, newly admitted
students for the demands of graduate education such as
research, writing, time management, etc. Participants receive
a $1500 stipend and payment of 4 credits for the summer B
semester. All participants are required to be registered as full-
time students for the following academic year. U.S. citizens
who have been admitted to a university graduate program
and meet criteria for eligibility are invited to apply online at
http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/diversity/boe-summer.html
Florida A&M University Feeder Program-UF is one
of 30 universities who are part of the FAMU Feeder pro-
gram, aimed at increasing the number of FAMU students
in graduate programs. FAMU nominates students with a
minimum GPA of 3.0 to participating feeder institutions
for admission into their graduate programs. The Office of
Graduate Minority Programs is the University of Florida's
main contact for the feeder program. The University offers
five fellowships every year to qualified FAMU Feeder stu-
dents who have been admitted to a graduate program. Each
receives an $8,000 annual stipend, plus tuition for up to
12 credits for the fall and spring semesters. The application
deadline is February 15th.

provides tuition payment for graduate students with an
economic need due to expired funding from fellowships or
assistantships who are within three semesters of finishing
their degrees. It is limited to students who are U.S. citizens
or permanent-resident aliens.
Campus Visitation Program-CVP provides an oppor-
tunity for prospective students who are underrepresented in
graduate studies to visit the University of Florida campus.
During the visitation, participants get to learn more about
UF's graduate and professional programs, as well as meet
with administrators, faculty members, and current gradu-
ate students. CVP is held over three days in the middle of
every fall and spring semester. Housing and some meals
are provided by the University, and participants receive a
reimbursement toward a portion of their travel expenses. All
participants are required to apply for graduate admission to
a UF program during their visitation; therefore, they must
have at least a 3.0 upper-division undergraduate grade point
average and meet minimum UF requirements on GRE,
GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, etc. in order to be accepted for the
Campus Visitation Program.
Professional Development Workshops-Every semester
the Office of Graduate Minority Programs plans multiple
professional development workshops on topics related to
graduate and professional success. Examples include get-
ting your work published, financial management, choosing
a mentor, etc. These workshops are free and open to all
University of Florida students.

GENERAL INFORMAL ION
28

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,
I ,', degree program requirements, and the i'. .". 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 -. :ii and/
or the graduate coordinator in the major academic unit con-
cerning courses and degree requirements, deficiencies if any,
and special regulations of the academic unit. The dean of the
.11I in which the degree program is located or a represen-
tative must have oversight for all registrations. Once a super-
visory 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 ,., II
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 II. 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 i. : i;,
students who have been admitted to post-
baccalaureate credits.
7 ........... Graduate students seeking a first master's
degree.
8 ............ Graduate students who have earned a mas-
ter'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 admitted
to doctoral candidacy.


Confidentiality of Student Records
The University assures the confidentiality of student
educational 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, ,.- :i1.,. 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
Human Resources routinely release directory information
to the public. In addition to requesting this restriction
from the COI 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 administra-
tive, supervisory, 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 autho-
rized interest or activity undertaken in the name of the
University for which access to an educational record is
necessary 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
student'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 pre-
sentation 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 hon-
esty and integrity are fundamental values of the university
community. 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
of Florida education is dependent upon community accep-
tance 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.edu/stg/ 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 appropriate 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.

Graduate Students on Appointment-Required regis-
tration for fellows and trainees with stipends of $3,150 or
greater per semester is 12 credits. Fellows whose stipends
are less than $3,150 must register for at least 3 credits dur-
ing fall and spring semesters and 2 credits for summer. Any
additional credits are at the expense of the student. The full-
time registration requirement is reduced for those students
who are graduate assistants. For students on appointment
for the full summer, registration must total that specified
for 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
finish 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 fewer 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/archived-files/policy-manual-archived-copy.
html.
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 cer-
tify 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





GENERAL INFORMATION
30
the government, external funding agency, or academic unit
may register as a part-time student. The minimum registra-
tion 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 appropriately
for their appointment. Thesis students must be registered in
6971 and doctoral students in 7980 for at least the mini-
mum required registration.
Cleared Prior-Students exempt from final term regis-
tration 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 nonthesis
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, begin-
ning 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 business day after the first meeting. This does not apply
to laboratory 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 registra-
tion fee liability, even for students with fee waivers.
Retaking Courses-Graduate students may repeat
courses in which they earn failing grades. The grade points
from the first and subsequent attempts are included in the
computation 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 absenc-
es from class include illness, serious family emergencies,
special curricular requirements, military obligation, severe
weather conditions, religious holidays, and participation in
official University activities. Absences from class for court-

imposed legal obligations (e.g., jury duty or subpoena) 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
academic unit will notify students dropped from courses or
laboratories 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
professor to make attendance mandatory. After due warn-
ing, professors may prohibit further attendance and subse-
quently 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 autho-
rized representative of the new academic unit and college
and then submitted to the Graduate School for processing <
https://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/GIMS2/forms/forms.asp>.


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/unsatisfac-
tory 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 graduate
students, with the exception described under Undergraduate
Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses numbered
7000 and above are designed primarily for advanced gradu-
ate 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
credit. 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
following the semester credit designation.
Professional Work-Graduate students may receive
credit toward their degrees for courses in professional pro-
grams (e.g., J.D., D.V.M., or M.D.) when their advisers and
graduate coordinators certify that the course work is appro-
priate for their programs and when the students receive per-
mission 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 maximum of 9 credits toward the master's degree and 30
credits toward the doctorate.


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
calculating 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 academic
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


GENERAL REGULATIONS


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
appropriate must be so noted in their catalog descrip-
tions, 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 become
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.
If an academic unit requires that a student meet the for-
eign 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,





GENERAL INFORMATION
32
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 nonthe-
sis master's degree may be taken at a remote site. All other
qualifying 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
universities in the State University System.
With the approval of all members of the supervisory
committee, one committee member (excluding the com-
mittee chair and external member of doctoral committee)
may be off-site at a qualifying oral examination or at the
final oral defense of the dissertation or thesis, using modern
communication technology 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 included in the front of this catalog and in the Graduate
Student Handbook.
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/editorial/introduction.html, click Thesis and
Dissertation Guide).
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 must meet minimum regis-
tration 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/students/student-forms.html 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
verification 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 students who applied to graduate. Some employers and
licensure boards require the degree statement on the tran-
script, 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 nonresi-
dent 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.
5. 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.
6. 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 in person the
honor indicated by the appropriate hood. The student may
arrange to rent or buy through the University Bookstore the
proper academic attire to be worn at Commencement.


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 requirements
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
previous master's degree program may be applied toward a
second 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, six
credits of courses numbered 3000 or above may be taken
provided they are part of an approved plan of study.
Minor-Minor work must be in an academic unit other
than the major. 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 the major academic unit's permission. 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.
No more than 9 of the 30 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-level (5000-7999)
work, earned with a grade ofB or better, is eligible for trans-
fer of credit. A maximum of 15 transfer credits are allowed.
These can include no more than 9 credits from institu-
tion/s approved by UF, with the balance obtained from
postbaccalaureate work at the University of Florida. Credits
transferred from other universities are applied toward meet-
ing the degree requirements, but the grades earned are not
computed in the student's grade-point average. Acceptance
of transfer of credit requires approval of the student's super-
visory 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.
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
academic unit chair, approved by the college dean, and
appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The Dean


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MASTER'S DEGREE.


of the Graduate School is an ex-officio member of all super-
visory committees. Only those members of the faculty who
have been appointed to the Graduate Faculty may serve as
members of a supervisory committee. If a student takes fewer
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 for both
thesis and nonthesis programs must include one Graduate
Faculty member from the minor academic unit.
Language Requirements-(1) The requirement of a
reading 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
information. (2) The ability to use the English language
correctly and effectively, as judged by the supervisory com-
mittee, is required of all candidates.
Examination-Each candidate must pass a final com-
prehensive examination. This examination must cover at
least the candidate's field of concentration. In no case, may
it be scheduled earlier than the term preceding the semester
in which the degree is to be awarded. The comprehensive
examination for the nonthesis master's degree may be taken
at a remote site. All other examinations must be held on
campus.
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 desig-
nated 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 in
Education, Master of Arts in Mass Communication, Master
of Science in Building Construction, Master of Science in
Pharmacy, 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.







34


GENERAL INFORMATION


I


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
courses may be counted in meeting the minimum require-
ments for a nonthesis option. Students pursuing the nonthe-
sis 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 an 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 com-
prehensive 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. More information is available at http://etd.circa.ufl.
edu/calendar.html, http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/editorial/
introduction.html, 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
permission must be forwarded to the Graduate School by
midpoint of the final term. The candidate must meet all
the requirements of the nonthesis option as specified above.
A maximum 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
signature pages and the Final Examination Report. These
may be retained by the supervisory chair until acceptable
completion 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
granted 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 rela-
tion 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
applied to the Ph.D. degree must be taken at an institution
offering the doctoral degree and must be approved for graduate
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 committee 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 com-
mittee, the student may choose one or more minor fields.
Minor work may be completed in any academic unit, other
than the major academic unit, approved for master's or doc-
toral degree programs as listed in this catalog. The collective
grade for courses 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 semester
should obtain prior written approval from his/her faculty
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


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D.


the 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 courses
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 complet-
ed 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 super-
visory committee, shall be present with the candidate
for this examination. Only members of the official
supervisory committee may sign the dissertation and
they must approve the dissertation unanimously. (See
Examinations in the General Regulations section of
this catalog for variation in procedure.)
Membership-The supervisory committee for a candi-
date 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 academ-
ic 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.





GENERAL INFORMATION
36
Special Appointments-People without Graduate
Faculty status may be made official members of a student's
supervisory committee through the special appointment
process. The chair of the student's supervisory committee
requests the special appointment including a brief explana-
tion of what the proposed member will contribute to the
supervisory 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 special member on the new supervisory com-
mittee, another request must be submitted to the Graduate
School for the new committee. Appropriate candidates for
special appointments include individuals from outside of
the University of Florida with specific expertise which will
contribute to a graduate student's program of study; ten-
ure-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 members of the Graduate Faculty. A special
appointment may not serve as a supervisory committee
chair, cochair, or external member. A special appoint-
ment may not be the minor representative for a student
with a minor.
External Member-The external member's responsibili-
ties 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
academic 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 prohibited from holding any official interest in
the doctoral candidate's major academic unit. Faculty hold-
ing 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 academic
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 can-
not 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 provided 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 excep-
tion 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
committee, one committee member-except for the chair
or external member-may be off-site at a qualifying oral
examination or at the final oral defense of the dissertation
or thesis, 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 com-
mittee to function as a University committee, as con-
trasted 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/archived-files/policy-
manual-archived-copy.html (Chapter VIII).


Language Requirement
Any foreign language requirement for the Ph.D. is
established by the major academic unit with approval of
the college. The student should check with the graduate
coordinator of the appropriate academic unit for specific
information. The foreign language departments offer special
classes for graduate students who are beginning the study
of a language. 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
candidates 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 supervisory
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 qualify-
ing examination and the date of the degree there must be
a minimum of two semesters. The semester in which the
qualifying 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 candi-
dacy. Such admission requires the approval of the student's
supervisory 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
student'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


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D.


basis when submitted in writing by the academic unit to the
Graduate School. More information is available at http://etd.
circa.ufl.edu, http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/editorial/edito-
rial-faqs.html, 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 supervisory
committee and to the Graduate School. Dissertations must
be written in English, except for students pursuing degrees
in Romance or Germanic 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 disserta-
tion (either electronic or printed on 100% cotton, 20-pound
bond paper), together with the signed Final Examination
Report and five copies of the abstract, should be returned
to the Graduate School. The original 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 100% cotton 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
contribute 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
develop 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 willing to accept, taking into account the relevant cir-
cumstances. The AAU guidelines contained herein were
adopted by the University of Florida Graduate Council on
January 19, 1989.





GENERAL INFORMATION
38
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 pat-
ent or copyright applications should be the result 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 conferred), the candidate will be given a final examina-
tion, oral or written or both, by the supervisory committee
meeting on campus. All supervisory committee members
must be present with the candidate at the oral portion of
this examination. At the time of the defense, all committee
members should sign the signature page and all commit-
tee and attending faculty members should sign the Final
Examination Report. These forms may be retained by
the supervisory chair until acceptable completion 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.

Master of Latin

The Classics Department of the University of Florida
offers the nonthesis Master of Latin degree, a 30-credit
program designed primarily for currently employed and/or
certified teaching professionals who wish to widen their
knowledge of Latin, broaden their education in the field
of classics, and enhance their professional qualifications.
This degree can be attained by students in residence for fall/
spring semesters or through a program of summer course
work at the University of Florida as well as through directed
independent study and/or distance learning courses during
the regular academic year.
Students during the summer terms can complete the
degree within four years by earning six graduate credits each
summer (total = 24), plus just two three-credit independent








study or distance learning courses during the intervening
academic years. Those who already have some graduate
credit in Latin, or who can take more credits during the
year, can complete the degree more quickly.
This program of study is different from the M.A. degree
in Latin since it has no thesis requirement, does not prepare
students for Ph.D. level studies, and is aimed specifically at
currently employed and certified Latin teachers.
Admission-Prospective students are advised to con-
tact the Department's Graduate Coordinator or Distance
Learning Coordinator before making application.
Requirements for the admissions process are (1) an applica-
tion form for entrance to the University of Florida Graduate
School, (2) acceptable GRE scores, and (3) transcripts
recording undergraduate courses (and graduate courses, if
any; students must demonstrate the ability to take Latin
course work at the graduate level).
Degree Requirements-This nonthesis degree requires
a minimum of 30 credits as a graduate student at the
University of Florida, of which no more than 8 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. The student will take at least half the
required credits in the Latin language and literature courses
(LAT or LNW courses at the 5000 level or above). UF
courses taken at the graduate level prior to admission to the
Graduate School (e.g., in the Latin Summer Institutes) may
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 admin-
ister 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 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.

GENERAL INFORMATION
48
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
and no 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 specific
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 commit-
tee. Work on the thesis may be conducted in an industrial
or governmental laboratory under conditions stipulated by
the supervisory committee.
Final Examination-After the student has completed
all work on the plan of study, the supervisory committee
conducts a final comprehensive oral and/or written exami-
nation, 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.

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 Office of Graduate Studies in
the College of Education, programs leading to these degrees
are administered through the individual departments and








school in the College of Education. It is the responsibility
of a department's chair or the school's 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 their require-
ments may be obtained from the individual departments
and school. 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 professional specialization. Programs are available
in the various areas of specialization 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. A thesis is not required; however, each
program will include continuing attention to a research
component relevant to the professional role for which the
student is preparing.
With school/department 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
master's degree from another accredited institution must
complete a minimum of 36 credits of post-master's study to
satisfy the following requirements:
1. At least 30 credits in graduate-level courses.
2. At least 12 credits in graduate-level professional edu-
cation 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.
Only graduate-level (5000-7999) work, earned with
a grade of B or better, is eligible for transfer of credit. A
maximum of 15 transfer credits are allowed. These can
include no more than 9 credits from institutions approved
by UF, with the balance obtained from postbaccalaureate
work at the University of Florida. Credits transferred from
other universities are applied toward meeting the degree
requirements, but the grades earned are not computed in
the student's grade-point average. Acceptance of transfer of


SPECIALIZED GRADUATE DEGREES


credit requires approval of the student's supervisory com-
mittee and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for the Ed.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.


Doctor of Education

The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree is offered for
students who desire advanced professional training and
academic preparation for the highest levels of educational
practice. Programs are available in the various areas of
specialization within the School of Teaching and Learning
and the Departments of Counselor Education; Educational
Leadership, Policy, and Foundations; Educational
Psychology; and Special Education.
A minimum of 90 credits beyond the bachelor's degree is
required for the Ed.D. degree. All master's degrees counted
in the minimum number of credits must have been earned
in the last seven years. Specific course requirements vary
with the academic unit and with the student's plan for
research. With the approval of the supervisory committee,
the student may choose one or more minor fields of study.
The qualifying examination and a doctoral dissertation are
required of all candidates for the Ed.D. degree.

30 credits of internship. Students entering the program with
a master's degree in a related area may be allowed to transfer
up to 30 credits in graduate courses corresponding to those
required by the Plant Medicine program.
Supervisory Committee-The supervisory committee
is selected by the student, nominated by the Director of
the Plant Medicine Program, approved by the Dean of the
College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and appointed by
the Dean of the Graduate School.
The committee should be appointed as soon as possible
after beginning the program and before the start of the
student's second academic year. Each supervisory committee
must consist of three University of Florida Graduate Faculty
members: one each from entomology/nematology, plant
pathology, and plant/soil science. The duties of the super-
visory committee include planning of elective courses and
internships, assisting with the completion of the program
of study form (Form 2), evaluation of elective internships,
periodic evaluation of the student's progress in the program
(a minimum of one supervisory committee meeting per
year is required and meeting twice per year is recommend-
ed), and administration of the final oral comprehensive
examination.
Comprehensive Examination-Both written and oral
comprehensive examinations are required of all D.P.M.
students and may be taken at the end of the fall, spring, or
summer semester in which the student completes all of his/
her course work and internships. The written examination
consists of three sections: entomology/nematology, plant
pathology, and plant/water science. Faculty from the appro-
priate disciplines are appointed by the Program Director to
develop and grade the final written examination, working
in concert with faculty who teach courses required for the
D.P.M. degree. After a student passes all three sections of
the final written examination (80% or higher is considered
a passing grade), his/her supervisory committee administers
an oral examination that tests the student's ability to diag-
nose and manage plant health problems.. A student who fails
to pass a comprehensive examination may retake it within
three months.

University reserves the right to set minimum amounts for
which refunds will be produced for overpayments on stu-
dent accounts.

termination of attendance for students receiving financial
aid will first be refunded to the appropriate financial aid
programs. 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 por-
tion of the student's federal aid must be returned to the
U.S. Department of Education. The amount the student

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
following entry describes the UF libraries, local collection
strengths, the physical distribution of collections among
campus libraries, and the services available to assist students
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 respec-
tive administrative units. All of the libraries serve all the
University's faculty and students, but each has a special
mission 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 ser-
vice 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.


RESEARCH AND TEACHING SERVICES


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
catalog 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 litera-
ture 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 advisory
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.
Library West is closed for renovation until early 2006.
Most of the humanities and social science collections, as well
as professional collections in support of business, health and
human performance, and journalism, are normally housed
in this building. The 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. The 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.

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
preeminent Floridiana collection and holds the largest North
American collection of Spanish colonial documents concern-
ing 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
architecture (Architecture and Fine Arts), late 19th- and
early-20th-century German state documents (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 information, especially in
electronic format, and other U.S. documents (Documents
Department, Marston Science Library), the rural sociology
of Florida and tropical and subtropical agriculture collec-


tions (Marston Science Library), and English and American
literature (Library West collection-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 librar-
ians 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
specialized bibliographic knowledge to define what informa-
tion resources are available locally and nationally to support
specific research. A good time to consult the subject special-
ists is when beginning work on a major research project or
developing 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
international databases. Many materials that are not held
on campus 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 official State
Museum of Florida and as the University museum.
The public education and exhibits division of the Museum
is in Powell Hall, on Hull Road at the western edge of cam-
pus, 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 traveling
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: the Office of the Director is respon-
sible for administrative oversight as well as fund-raising and
development; the Department of Natural History houses
the state's natural history collections and is staffed by sci-
entists and support personnel concerned with the study
of modern and fossil plants and animals, and historic and

prehistoric people and their cultures; Exhibits and Public
Programs in Powell Hall is staffed by specialists in the inter-
pretation of natural history through exhibits and educational
programs. The scientific and educational faculty (curators)
hold appointments in appropriate University of Florida aca-
demic units. Through these appointments, they participate
in both undergraduate and graduate teaching programs.
Attached to Powell Hall is the newly completed William
W. and Nadine M. McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and
Biodiversity. This world-class facility features a 46,000-
square-foot Lepidoptera center devoted to housing one of
the world's largest and most comprehensive Lepidoptera
collections as well as the state-of-the-art research facilities for
their study. It also contains dynamic public exhibitions and
a live Butterfly Rainforest with walking trails, educational
exhibits, and 2,000 living butterflies.
The Randell Research Center at the Pineland archeo-
logical site near Fort Myers, Florida, is dedicated to learn-
ing and teaching the archeology, history, and ecology of
Southwest Florida.
The Herbarium of the University of Florida is also a
division 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 holdings. 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 ethnological col-
lections are noteworthy, particularly in the aboriginal and
Spanish colonial material remains from the southeastern
United States and the Caribbean. There are extensive study
collections of birds, mammals, mollusks, reptiles, amphib-
ians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate fossils, and plant
fossils, as well as 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 appli-
cation to the appropriate academic units. Graduate assistant-
ships are available in the Museum in areas emphasized in its
research programs.

The Katharine Ordway Preserve and Swisher Memorial
Sanctuary (the Preserve)
are adjacent pieces of land, owned by the University of
Florida Foundation and The Nature Conservancy, and total
some 9,600 acres. The facility is operated by the UF/IFAS
Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, and is
managed as a biological field station dedicated to the long-
term study and conservation of unique ecosystems through
management, research, and education. The Preserve is a
member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations and
provides support for many UF departments/units as well as
state/federal agencies and NGOs. Thesis and dissertation


work is actively encouraged and has played a major role in
the research conducted at the preserve. An array of habitats
such as longleaf pine/wiregrass sandhill, upland mixed
forests, mesic hammocks, freshwater lakes, marshes, and
swamps provide many research and education opportuni-
ties. The Preserve is located approximately 25 miles east
of Gainesville near Melrose and is not open to the general
public.

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 ser-
vices for all graduate students and alumni seeking employ-
ment opportunities. The CRC also works closely with the
Academic Advising Center to assist students in identifying a
suitable career and associated academic preparation.
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 inter-
view techniques are invited to visit the Center and utilize
its services. The Center has an extensive career library, with
employer recruiting materials, directories of employers, and
other career skills information, and its "immediate job open-
ings" 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
personal 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 com-
puter lab, through terminals in the CRC library, or if web
access is available, from a personal computer. It contains
a full spectrum of information, services, and direct web
links; includes details about the Career Resource Center, its
mission, location, and hours of operation; describes CRC
programs and services for students, career fairs, and Career
Showcase (including a current list of employers attending);








gives a schedule of CRC events and programs, job listings,
and interviewing/on-campus recruiting (including signing
up for interviews); and provides information for alumni.
For those in the immediate job market, direct links to a wide
variety of job posting services and registering with the Gator
Career Link System enable 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.
During the academic year, the Center also sponsors a num-
ber of Career Days and Showcases that bring employers to
campus to talk to students about careers and jobs. These ses-
sions are open to all majors and are an ideal way for graduate
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 distribu-
tion services of professional placement files (qualifica-
tions records, vitae, resumes, and personal references). A
modest charge is assessed to cover labor and materials for
copy services 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 services.
Topics of services for graduate students often include assis-
tance with concerns related to academic success, time and
stress management skills, anxiety and depression, personal
and family relationships, adjustment to the culture, and
other issues associated with transition.
Counseling Center faculty also provide a range of consul-
tation and outreach programs to the campus community.
Telephone or in-person consultation is available for stu-
dents, parents, faculty, and staff regarding any issues related
to student development. Center faculty serve as program
resources for a wide variety of student organizations and
academic departments. The Center has an extensive train-
ing program for selected graduate students. Faculty teach
undergraduate and graduate courses in the Departments of
Psychology and Counselor Education.
All Center activities are conducted with sensitivity to the
diversity of the students on a large, multicultural campus.

STUDENT SERVICES


English Skills for International
Students

The University of Florida makes available three English
language programs to help international graduate students
improve their proficiency in English. These programs are (1)
the English Language Institute, (2) Scholarly Writing, and
(3) Academic Spoken English.
Applicants whose command of English is not as good as
expected may be required by their academic units to attend
the English Language Institute (ELI), an intensive English
program designed to provide rapid gains in English profi-
ciency. An ELI student may require one, two, or exception-
ally, three semesters of full-time English study before enter-
ing Graduate School. Information about ELI is available in
315 Norman Hall and at the ELI website http://www.eli.
ufl.edu.
The Scholarly Writing (SW) program is designed to help
foreign graduate students improve their writing ability.
Applicants whose verbal GRE scores are below 320 or who
have been admitted provisionally with a TOEFL score lower
than 550 are given a writing test. Those demonstrating a
lower proficiency than needed for successful performance
in written tasks at the graduate level are required to take
EAP 5845. Another course, EAP 5846 (Research Writing)
is offered to those who wish to learn to write in their fields
of study. Information about the SW program is available at
the coordinator's office, 4131 Turlington Hall, telephone
(352) 392-0639.
Academic Spoken English (ASE) is designed to help
international graduate students with their oral commu-
nication skills in English. Course offerings in ASE are
particularly relevant for those who expect to be Graduate
Teaching Assistants at the University of Florida but whose
oral proficiency can benefit from additional language work.
Students who must raise TSE /SPEAK scores to be eligible
to teach are advised to take EAP 5835, a course to improve
general oral language skills. EAP 5836 is a required course
for international graduate students (whose first language is
not English) whose oral proficiency is good enough to qual-
ify them to teach, but is not sufficient to exempt them from
language/teaching supervision (SPEAK/TSE scores less than
55.) During the course of EAP 5836, international gradu-
ate teaching assistants are videotaped teaching, and their
class work is discussed constructively by the ASE staff. EAP
5837 is an advanced oral skills course for those students
interested in continuing to improve their interpersonal and
professional communication in English.


Graduate Student E-mail Listserv
and Website
The Graduate School communicates directly with
enrolled graduate students via e-mail using GatorLink
addresses. Messages contain time-sensitive information
about important deadlines. An archive of messages is
available at http://lists.ufl.edu/archives/gradstudent-l.html.
Students are required to establish this free account. Students

Graduate Newsletter
Excel, the Graduate School newsletter, is published annu-
ally in the spring to highlight graduate education at the
University of Florida. For more information or to contribute
a topic, call the Graduate School at 392-4646.


Graduate School Editorial Office
The Graduate School Editorial Office provides the Guide
for Preparing Theses and Dissertations to assist the student in
the preparation of the manuscript and offers suggestions and
advice on such matters as the preparation and reproduction
of illustrative materials, the treatment of special programs,
the use of copyrighted material, and how to secure a copy-
right for a dissertation. The following procedures apply to
the Graduate School's editorial services to students.
1. The responsibility for acceptable English in a thesis or
dissertation, as well as the originality and acceptable
quality of the content, lies with the student and the
supervisory committee.
2. The Graduate School editorial staff act only in an
advisory capacity but will answer questions regarding
correct grammar, sentence structure, and acceptable
forms of presentation.
3. The editorial staff will examine a limited portion of
the final rough draft and make recommendations
concerning the form of the thesis or dissertation
before the final typing.
4. At the initial submission of the dissertation, the
Editorial Office staff check the format and pagination
and read portions of the text for general usage, refer-
ences, and bibliographical form. Master's theses are
checked for format, reference style, pagination, and
signatures. Before final submission, ETD corrections
and links to table of contents and lists of figures and
tables are checked.
5. The Editorial Office maintains a file of experienced
thesis typists and manuscript editors that the student
may consult in the document preparation.
For more information, call (352)392-1282, fax (352)846-
1855, e-mail hmartin@ufl.edu. The Guide, critical dates,
and other information for graduate students are available on
the World Wide Web at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/edito-
rial/introduction.html.


Graduate School Records Office
The Records Office works with academic units to sup-
port students at all phases of their graduate careers, from
admission through degree certification and graduation.
The Office is responsible for keeping the official graduate
student record and ensuring that all Graduate Council and
University policies are followed.
It is the responsibility of the student and the super-
visory committee chair 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 committee are permitted through the pub-
lished 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 aca-
demic unit for procedural details.


Graduate Student Council
The Graduate Student Council was formed in 1989 to fos-
ter interaction among graduate students on campus and to
provide an agency for the coordination of graduate student
activities and programs. The GSC seeks the improvement of
graduate student education through active and permanent
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 National Association
of Graduate and Professional Students.


Graduate Student Handbook
The Graduate School makes available to all students a
summary of useful information in the Graduate Student
Handbook. Copies are distributed to new students by the
academic unit. It is available on the World Wide Web at
http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/students/introduction.html.

Ombudsman
The Office of the University Ombudsman was established
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 informal
avenue of redress for students' problems and grievances
which arise in the course of interacting with the institu-
tion. 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 parties.
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 con-
tact with the appropriate campus office for dealing with
their problems. For more information, visit http://www.
ombudsman.ufl.edu.

Reading and Writing Center
The Reading and Writing Center is part of the Office of
Academic Technology (formerly the Office of Instructional
Resources). Located in Southwest Broward Hall, the Center
offers one-on-one tutoring and writing help for both under-
graduate and graduate students. The Center often helps
people with application essays and personal statements for
graduate school applications. It also offers help on papers
written for graduate school classes, as well as theses or dis-
sertations. The Center guarantees 15 to 20 minute sessions
(longer if staff are not busy) to look over a student's writing.
While multiple visits will give students feedback on the
strengths and weaknesses in their writing, it is difficult to
provide anything like a comprehensive reading of any docu-
ment as long as most theses and dissertations. Contact the
Center on the web at http://www.at.ufl.edu/r&w/ or call
(352)392-2010.

Speech and Hearing Clinic
The University of Florida Speech and Hearing Clinic,
located on the fourth floor of Dauer Hall, offers therapeutic
and diagnostic services to persons with speech, language,
and hearing disorders as well as to persons with dyslexia
and other learning disabilities. Lessons for general accent
reduction and diction may be arranged. These services are


available to the University faculty and students. Therapy is
scheduled between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, with
the Clinic being open in accordance with the University
Calendar. Students are encouraged to visit the Clinic office
at 435 Dauer Hall, check the website http://www.csd.ufl.
edu, or call (352)392-2041 for additional information or to

Student Health Care Center
Student Health Care Center (SHCC) provides outpatient
medical services that include primary medical care, health
screening programs, health education, sexual assault recov-
ery services, and mental health counseling. The SHCC is
accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory
Health Care, Inc.
Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, reg-
istered nurses, dietitians, psychiatrists, psychologists and
mental health counselors staff the SHCC. The SHCC has a
convenient appointment based system designed to encourage
continuity of care. Students are assigned a medical provider
in a team. This provider will see the student throughout his/
her educational career at UF Students should phone first to
receive an appointment with their provider within 24 hours.
Each team has a registered nurse that the student can phone
to discuss medical concerns and questions. The health pro-
motion staff provides counseling and an extensive campus
outreach. In addition, the SHCC provides a pharmacy,
clinical laboratory, and radiology services. Health services
available for university students include immunizations,
foreign travel consultation, women's health care, specialized
programs for students with eating disorders and alcohol and
substance abuse, an acute care clinic, and a sports medicine
clinic. (An up-to-date description of all services, hours, and
special events is listed on the Student Health Care Center
website: http://www.shcc.ufl.edu.)
There is no charge for an office visit with SHCC clinical
staff, health education, or mental health services. Fee-for-
service charges are assessed for laboratory tests, X-rays,
medical procedures, medications, physical therapy, massage
therapy, and consultation with health care specialists. CPR
and first-aid classes are also available for a fee. All the ser-
vices are located in the Infirmary building, which is located
on Fletcher Drive on campus. Limited SHCC services are
also available at SHCC@Shands and the SHCC@Corry
Village Satellite Clinics.
The fall and spring SHCC hours for medical care are 8:00
a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays, and noon to 4:00 p.m. on
weekends and some holidays. Student Mental Health hours
are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday and Friday. Pharmacy
hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday
and noon to 4:00 p.m. on weekends/holidays. Clinic hours
vary during semester breaks and holidays. Summer semester
hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through
Friday. Both a medical and mental health provider is avail-
able by phone by calling 392-1161 for urgent questions that
require advice after hours.
All students registered for classes at the University are
eligible for service. Spouses, postdoctoral students, and








semester-off students who plan to return the following
semester may receive services if they pay an optional health
fee. A Student Government-sponsored health insurance
plan is available.
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 indi-
vidual, 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
in 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 HIV
infection or AIDS from other individuals in the educational
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 at 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 treatment, early intervention is crucial to maintain-
ing 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 use existing support services.

The Fisher School of Accounting offers graduate work lead-
ing to the Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) degree with a major in
accounting and the Ph.D. degree with a major in business admin-
istration and an accounting concentration. Complete descriptions
of the requirements for these degrees are provided in the General
Information section of this catalog.
The M.Acc. degree program offers specialization in each of the
three areas of auditing/financial accounting, accounting systems,
and taxation. A joint program leading to the Juris Doctor and
Master of Accounting degrees also is offered by the Fisher School
of Accounting and College of Law. Specific details for the M.Acc.,
M.Acc./J.D., and Ph.D. programs will be supplied by the Fisher
School of Accounting upon request.
The M.Acc. and the Ph.D. accounting programs require admis-
sion standards of at least the following: A combined verbal and
quantitative score of 1200 on the Graduate Record Examination
(GRE), or a score of 550 on the Graduate Management Admission
Test (GMAT). Admission to the M.Acc. or Ph.D. accounting
graduate programs cannot be granted until scores are received.
Information on minimum GPA standards for admission to the
M.Acc. program may be obtained from the office of the Associate
Director. International students must submit a TOEFL score of
at least 570 with a minimum of 60 on the first section, 55 on
the second section, and 55 on the third section, and a satisfactory
GMAT or GRE score.
Combined Degree Program-The recommended curriculum
to prepare for a professional career in accounting is the 3/2 five-
year program with a joint awarding of the Bachelor of Science in
Accounting and Master of Accounting degrees upon completion
of the 152-hour program. The entry point into the 3/2 program
is the beginning of the senior year.
Students who have already completed an undergraduate degree
in accounting may enter the one-year M.Acc. degree program
which requires satisfactory completion of 34 hours of course
work. A minimum of 20 credits must be in graduate level courses;
a minimum of 18 credits must be in graduate level accounting
courses. The remaining credits are selected from recommended
elective courses that vary by area of specialization. Students are
cautioned to seek early advisement since many graduate courses
are offered only once a year.
Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a core of courses
in mathematical methods, statistics, and economic theory; one or
two supporting fields selected by the student; and a major field
of accounting. Students are expected to acquire teaching experi-
ence as part of the Ph.D. degree program. Grants-in-aid will be
awarded for this teaching. International students must submit a
Test of Spoken English (TSE) test score of at least 220 along with
satisfactory GMAT/GRE and TOEFL scores in order to obtain
a teaching appointment. Students are expected to enroll in

istry and 8 credits of general physics with calculus and laboratory
or equivalent. Admission into the Doctor of Philosophy or the
Master of Science program with a concentration in agricultural
operations management in the College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences requires completion of an approved undergraduate agri-
cultural operations management program or equivalent and a
working knowledge of a computer language. Admission into the
Doctor of Philosophy program with a specialization in applied
sciences requires an undergraduate degree in a basic science field
and a master's degree in a science or engineering field with courses
including analytic geometry, calculus, differential equations, 8
credits of general physics and 8 credits of general chemistry, or
equivalent. Students not meeting the stated admissions require-
ments may be accepted into a degree program, providing sufficient
articulation courses are included in the program of study. Students
interested in enrolling in a graduate program should contact the
graduate coordinator.
Candidates for advanced degrees in engineering are required
to take at least 12 credits from an approved list of major courses
at the 5000 level or higher, with at least 6 credits of ABE courses
at the 6000 level, exclusive of seminar and thesis research credits.
Other courses are taken in applicable basic sciences and engineer-
ing to meet educational objectives and to comprise an integrated
program as approved by the Department's Graduate Committee.
Master's students are required to complete at least 3 credits of
mathematics at the 5000 level or higher, and doctoral students are
required to complete at least 12 credits.

The Department ofAgricultural Education and Communication
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, administrative, and
leadership positions in both the public and private sectors. Areas of
specialization include teaching and learning, communication, lead-
ership and volunteer development, and adult and extension educa-
tion. Courses are taught from an agricultural and natural resources
context and are broadly applicable in education, business, govern-
ment, 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 deal-
ing with agriculture, agribusiness, or natural resources or provides
a foundation for further study at the doctoral level. It is intended
primarily for students who enter with a bachelor's degree in jour-
nalism, agricultural journalism, advertising, broadcasting, public
relations, or related fields. The agricultural leadership education
specialization is designed to prepare students for educational lead-
ership, training, and outreach positions in agricultural, 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 sci-
ences, agriculture, 4-H, and other related areas. Students gain valu-
able 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 certified to teach in the state of Florida
through this program.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored in
agricultural 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 pro-
gram. Contact the graduate coordinator for information.

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 doc-
toral 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 general option and an interdisciplinary one. The gen-
eral 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
specialization and integration of a subfield of anthropology and an
outside field. More information about these two options is found
in the publication on graduate programs and policies that may be
accessed on the Department website .
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.
All entering graduate students 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 cer-
tification. Minimum requirements will normally include 1) a
minimum 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 admission
into the graduate program is January 5 (for fall semester admission
only). The Department strongly encourages early applications.

Human Performance-This concentration merges a range of
specializations within the Department into a curriculum that
will provide educational experiences to graduate students with
an interest in studying the factors that determine human per-
formance in both athletic and nonathletic domains. This flex-
ible approach allows students to focus on specific areas of sport
or clinical applications that best meet their individual interests.
Human performance incorporates components such as sport
nutrition, exercise and sport psychology, motor behavior, and the
physiological bases of strength and conditioning which are viable
to clinical populations.
Motor Learning/Control-This interdisciplinary doctoral con-
centration draws upon experiences and a knowledge base in the
movement and sport sciences, cognitive sciences, and physical
therapy. Students are prepared to conduct research and provide
expertise in traditional motor performance and learning settings.
Sport and Exercise Psychology-This area of concentration
provides the basis for understanding and influencing the underly-
ing attitudes, cognitions, and behaviors in both sport and exercise
settings. Given the development of sport and exercise psychology
as distinct fields that emphasize both science and practice, course
offerings are relevant to both fields.

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 undergradu-
ate and graduate programs, is intended to be a complete unit of
.. .., education leading to practice in architecture or related
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 masters 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
project. (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, mate-
rials 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; notifica-
tion of program length is part of the letter of acceptance and is
determined by portfolio and transcript review. ARC 4071, ARC
407 2, 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 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 cur-
riculum requirements. ARC 6356 is required and is prerequisite
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 o f 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 history,
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 application. This is a three-
to-four-semester program (32 hours minimum) 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, andVicenza Institute ofArchitecture
(Italy) accept students, not only from the University of Florida, but
also from academic circles throughout the United States and the
world for year-round study. All students in graduate 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.
Applications-All applications for fall semester graduate
admission, including official transcripts, GRE scores, and TOEFL
scores, if necessary, must be received by the Office of the Registrar
by February 1. In addition to satisfying University require-
ments for admission, applicants are required to submit to the
Graduate Program Assistant, School of Architecture, 231 ARCH,
Box 115702, the following: a portfolio of their creative work; a

scholarly statement of intent and objectives; and three letters of
recommendation. This material must be received by February
1 to be considered for admission in the following fall semester.
(Portfolio must be accompanied by self-addressed, stamped enve-
lope.) Students may apply after the February 1 deadline but will
only be considered if spaces become available. (Updates of portfo-
lios are accepted after February 1; however, applications will not
be considered until they are complete.)
The School reserves the right to retain student work for pur-
poses of record, exhibition, or instruction. Field trips are required
of all students; students should plan to have adequate funds avail-
able. It may be necessary to assess studio fees to defray costs of base
maps and other generally used materials.
