THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY
The Graduate School consists of the dean, associate dean, assistant deans, the
Graduate Council, and the graduate faculty. General policies and standards of the
Graduate School are established by the graduate faculty. Any policy change must be
approved by the graduate deans and the Graduate Council. The Graduate School is
responsible for the enforcement of minimum general standards of graduate work in
the University and for the coordination of the graduate programs of the various col-
leges and divisions of the University. The responsibility for the detailed operations of
graduate programs is vested in the individual colleges, divisions, and departments. In
most of the colleges an assistant dean or other official is directly responsible for grad-
uate study in his college.
The Graduate Council, of which the graduate dean is chairman, assists him in
being the agent of the graduate faculty for execution of policy related to graduate
study and associated research. The Council considers petitions and recommends the
award of graduate degrees. Members of the graduate faculty, who are appointed by
the dean with the approval of the Graduate Council, fall into two categories in accor-
dance with their function: the Graduate Studies Faculty (GSF), who are appointed to
teach graduate courses and to direct master's theses, and the Doctoral Research
Faculty (DRF), who are appointed in addition to direct doctoral dissertations. No
staff member is expected to perform any of these functions without having been ap-
pointed to the graduate faculty, though temporary exceptions may be made in
unusual circumstances.
In the beginning the organization of graduate study was very informal. Control
was in the hands of a faculty committee which reported directly to the President. In
1910, however, James N. Anderson, head of the Department of Ancient Languages,
was appointed Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Director of Graduate
Work, and in 1930 he became the first dean of the Graduate School. He was suc-
ceeded upon his retirement in 1938 by T. M. Simpson, head of the Department of
Mathematics, who held the position until 1951. C. F. Byers, head of the Department
of Biological Sciences in the University College, served as acting dean from June,
1951, until August, 1952, when he was succeeded by L. E. Grinter, who came from
the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he had been Vice President, Dean of the
Graduate School, and Research Professor. Upon becoming Acting Executive Vice
President in 1969, Dr. Grinter was named dean emeritus of the Graduate School. He
was succeeded by Harold P. Hanson, who came to Florida from the University of
Texas, where he had served as Chairman of the Department of Physics. In 1971, Dr.
Hanson was appointed Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Alexander G.
Smith, of the Department of Physics and Astronomy and a former assistant dean of
the Graduate School, served as acting dean until the appointment of Dr. Harry H.
Sisler. Dr. Sisler served as Chairman of the Department of Chemistry for 12 years, as
Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and as Executive Vice President of the
University of Florida until he became Dean of the Graduate School in March, 1973.
Study leading to graduate degrees has existed at the University of Florida from
the date of the establishment of the University on its present campus. The first M. A.
was awarded in 1906, the major being English, and the first M. S. in 1908, with a
major in entomology. The first programs leading to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930,







4 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 awarded 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
1976-77 the total number of graduate degrees awarded was 1,529 in more than 90
fields. The proportion of doctoral degrees has increased steadily. In 1950, 18 Ph.D.'s
and 5 Ed.D.'s were awarded. In 1976-77 the total was 293 Ph.D.'s and 25 Ed.D.'s

ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

Application for Admission.-Admission forms and information concerning
admission procedures may be obtained from the Registrar and Admissions Office,
135 Tigert Hall. Prospective students are urged to apply for admission as early as
possible. For some departments, deadlines for receipt of admission applications may
be earlier than those stated in the current University Calendar; prospective students
should check with the appropriate department. Applications which meet minimum
standards are referred to the graduate selection committees of the various colleges
and departments for approval or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department, the prospective student
must satisfy the requirements of the department as well as those of the Graduate
School. In some departments, the available space and facilities limit the number of
students that can be admitted.
General Requirements.-The Board of Regents has established the following
minimum standards for first-time admission to a master's or doctoral degree
program in the State University System: a grade average of B or better for all upper-
division undergraduate work or a total Verbal-Quantitative score of 1000 or higher







8 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Examination. It must be emphasized
that there are minimum standards for the State University System, and satisfaction of
these Board of Regents minimum criteria is not sufficient for admission to graduate
study at the University of Florida.
The Graduate School, University of Florida, requires both a minimum grade
average of B for all upper-division undergraduate work and a minimum Verbal-
Quantitative total score of 1000 on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Ex-
amination. For some departments, and in more advanced levels of graduate study an
undergraduate average or Graduate Record Examination scores above those stated
for the Graduate School may be required. These criteria are on file in the Office of
the Graduate School. Some colleges and departments require a reading knowledge
of at least 1 foreign language. Exceptions to the above requirements are made only
when these and other criteria such as letters or recommendation are reviewed by the
department, recommended by the department, and approved by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
Unqualified admission to the Graduate School is dependent upon the presenta-
tion of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. No applica-
tion will be considered unless the complete official transcript of all the applicant's
undergraduate and graduate work are in the possession of the Registrar, and no
transcript will be accepted as official unless it is received directly from the registrar
of the institution in which the work was done. Official supplementary transcripts are
required as soon as they are available for any work completed after application for
admission has been made. In general, no student who is a graduate of a nonaccredited
institution will be considered for graduate study in any unit of the University.
The Board of Regents has also ruled that in admitting students for a given
academic year, up to 10% may be admitted as exceptions. Students admitted as ex-
ceptions under the 10% waiver rule must present both an upper-division grade point
average and Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test Score with their applica-
tion and meet other criteria devised by the University, such as excellent letters of
recommendation from trusted colleagues, satisfactory performance in a specified
number of graduate courses taken as postbaccalaureate students, or practical ex-
perience in the discipline for a specified period of time.
The University encourages applications from qualified applicants of both sexes
from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. The University does not dis-
criminate on the basis of handicap in admission or access to its programs and ac-
tivities.

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION (GRE)
In addition to the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Examination which is
required of all applicants, some departments encourage the applicant to submit
scores on one or more advanced subject tests of the Graduate Record Examination.
The scores on all tests taken will be considered in regard to admission.
Postponement of the Graduate Record Examination.-In the event that an ap-
plicant takes the GRE Aptitude Test too late for the results to reach the Admissions
Office before the proposed date of entry, the student may apply for conditional ad-
mission to the Graduate School with postponement of the GRE Aptitude Test pro-
vided satisfactory scores on the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) are submitted. The
scores on the Miller Analogies Test will be used as a partial basis for deciding
whether conditional admission may be granted. The Miller Analogies Test is not a
substitute for the Graduate Record Examination. In cases where conditional admis-
sion is granted based on the scores of the Miller Analogies Test, it is for one term







ADMISSIONS / 9


only. Satisfactory scores on the GRE Aptitude Test must be submitted before a sec-
ond registration will be permitted.
The decision on postponing the Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test
will be based on the scores on the Miller Analogies Test and the academic credentials
submitted. If these scores and academic credentials are not satisfactory, submission
of the results of the GRE Aptitude test will be required before an admission decision
is reached. It should be noted that the Miller Analogies Test may not be repeated un-
til at least one year has elapsed.
Graduate Study in Business Administration.-Students applying for admission
to the Graduate School for study in the College of Business Administration may
substitute satisfactory scores on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)
for the Graduate Record Examination. Applicants are requested to contact the
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for additional information.
FOREIGN STUDENTS
All foreign students seeking admission to the Graduate School are required to
submit satisfactory scores on the GRE Aptitude Test and on the TOEFL (Test of
English as a Foreign Language) with the following exceptions:
1. Foreign students whose native tongue is English or who have studied at a
United States college or university for one year or more need not submit TOEFL
scores but must submit satisfactory scores on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate
Record Examination before their application for admission can be considered.
2. Students educated in foreign countries who apply for admission while resid-
ing outside the United States may be granted a 1 quarter postponement of the GRE
but not the TOEFL. Permission to register for subsequent quarters will depend upon
the submission of scores on the Graduate Record Examination.
3. All foreign students applying for admission to the Master of Business Ad-
ministration program must submit satisfactory scores from either the Graduate
Record Examination Aptitude Test or the Graduate Management Admission Test
before their application for admission can be considered. The Graduate Management
Admission Test is recommended.
Applicants are requested to write TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, Prin-
ceton, New Jersey, for registration forms.

CONDITIONAL ADMISSION
Students may be given conditional admission to the Graduate School to ascer-
tain their ability to pursue graduate work successfully where previous grade records
or Graduate Record Examination scores are on the borderline of acceptability.
Students granted conditional admission should be notified by the major depart-
ment of the conditions under which they are admitted. When these conditions have
been satisfied, the department must notify the student in writing, sending a copy of
notification to the Graduate School. Work taken while a student is in conditional
status may be applied toward a graduate degree.
POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
Students who have received a bachelor's degree but have not been admitted to the
Graduate School are classified as postbaccalaureate students (6-) and may enroll in
courses for any of the following reasons: (1) to validate undergraduate records from
nonaccredited and unevaluated colleges; (2) to provide a means for students not seek-
ing a graduate degree to enroll in courses-included in this category would be students
who change their professional goals or wish to expand their academic background;








10 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

and (3) to accommodate students who do intend to enter a graduate program at some
future date, but need a substantial number of prerequisite 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, it is possible
to transfer up to but no more than 10 quarter hours of course work earned with a
grade of A, B+, or B.
Students in the College of Education who desire postbaccalaureate classification
to obtain teacher certification must provide the college with a clear statement of cer-
tification goals as a part of the requirements for admission. Interested students should
write to 134 Norman Hall or call 392-0721 for further information.
FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE STUDENTS
Members of the faculty of the University of Florida with a rank of instructor or
above (or equivalents), except Florida Cooperative Extension Service (IFAS) county
personnel, may not receive a graduate degree from this institution. Exceptions to this
policy must be approved by the Graduate Council. Faculty members may register for
work in the Graduate School.
STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM PROGRAMS
Traveling Scholar Program.-The State University System affords, under the
Traveling Scholar Program, an opportunity for graduate students to take courses or
conduct research activities at any of the universities in the State System. Course work
taken under the auspices of the Traveling Scholar Program at another university in
the State System will apply for graduate credit at the student's home campus. The
deans of the graduate schools of the state universities are the coordinators of the
program, and interested students should contact the dean of the graduate school on
their home campus for additional information.
Cooperative Degree Programs.-In certain degree programs, faculty in the
State University System hold graduate faculty status at the University of Florida. In
those approved areas, the intellectual resources of these external graduate faculty
members are available to students at the University of Florida.

GENERAL REGULATIONS
It is the responsibility of the graduate student to become informed and to ob-
serve all regulations and procedures required by the program the student is pursuing.
The student must be familiar with those sections of the Graduate Catalog that outline
general regulations and requirements, specific degree program requirements, and the
offerings and requirements of the major department. 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 stu-
dent should consult the college and/or the graduate coordinator in the major depart-
ment concerning courses and degree requirements, deficiencies if any, and special
regulations of the department. The dean of the college in which the degree program is
located or a representative must approve all registrations.
STUDY LOADS
The University of Florida operates on a quarter system consisting of four 10-
week periods of instruction and examination. A credit under the quarter system is
equal to 2/3 of a semester credit.







GENERAL REGULATIONS / 1 1


Maximum registration for a full-time graduate student is 20 credits. Minimum
registration for a full-time graduate student is 12 credits. The maximum and
minimum registrations are reduced for those students who are graduate assistants or
are otherwise employed. Guidelines for the maximum and minimum registration for
students on appointment are provided in the Graduate Coordinator's Manual. Any
student on appointment who wishes to register for more than the maximum or less
than the minimum credits must have the written permission of the Dean of the Grad-
uate School.
Students not on appointment are assumed to be full-time and must register for a
minimum of 12 credits. Part-time status may be approved by the Graduate Coordina-
tor for students who are not pursuing a degree on a full-time basis. Such exceptions
must be clearly justified and the approved registration must be commensurate with
the use of University facilities and faculty time.

COURSES AND CREDITS
Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be used as any part of the graduate
degree requirements. Undergraduate courses (3000-4999) may be used for minor
credit when taken as part of an approved graduate program.
Courses numbered 5000 and above are limited to graduate students, with the ex-
ception described under Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses
numbered 7000 and above are designed primarily for advanced graduate students.
A complete list of approved graduate courses appears in the section of this
Catalog entitled Fields of Instruction. Departments reserve the right to decide which of
these graduate courses will be offered in a given quarter and the departments should
be consulted concerning available courses.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by correspondence may be used for
graduate credit.
Extension Work.-No extension courses may be used for graduate credit except
in programs for the M.Ag., M.Ed., M.A.E., M.A.T., M.S.T., M.H.Ed., M.P.E., and
Ed.S. degrees. Extension work taken at another institution, except through the Board
of Regents Office of Continuing Education, may not be transferred to the University
of Florida for graduate credit.
State Centers for Continuing Education.-Course work is available in the grad-
uate residence centers established in the state. The amount of credit acceptable for
transfer to a degree program varies according to the degree sought. Residence center
work is not transferable to all degree programs and the student should consult the re-
quirements for specific degrees in this Catalog for additional information.
Cooperative Education Program.-At the University of Florida, the Coopera-
tive Education Program is offered primarily for undergraduate students. However,
the course, 4949, Cooperative Work Experience, 3 to 5 credits, may be recom-
mended to the Graduate School for minor credit in master's degree programs pro-
vided this course is above the minimum course requirements for the degree.

GRADES
The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+, B, C+, C, and S.
Grades of C+ and C in courses below 5000 level are acceptable for credit toward
graduate degrees if the total program meets the B average requirement. In 5000-level
courses and above, C+ and C grades count toward a graduate degree if an equal num-
ber of credit hours 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 grade-point average.







12 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
Grades of S and U are the only grades awarded in. courses numbered 6910
(Supervised Research), 6940 (Supervised Teaching), 6971 (Master's Research), 6973
(Individual Project), and 7980 (Doctoral Research).
Additional courses for which S and U grades apply are noted in the departmen-
tal offerings. With the exception of those courses listed in the Graduate Catalog, no
course taken for an S/U grade may be used to satisfy the minimum requirements for a
graduate degree.
Deferred Grade H.-In special situations where it is not possible to assign a
regular grade at the end of a term a deferred grade (H) may be assigned. This grade
may be used only in special situations where the expected unit of work may be devel-
oped over a period of time greater than a single term. 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 descriptions, and must be approved by the Graduate Cur-
riculum Committee and the Graduate Council.
Incomplete Grades.-Grades of I (incomplete) must be removed no later than
the last day of classes of the first term in which the student registers following receipt
of the I grade. If the I grade has not been changed accordingly, the Office of the
Registrar will be requested to record a grade of E for the course. Exceptions to this
policy will be made by the Graduate School only if written justification from the
department chairman, approved by the college dean is received by the Graduate
School 4 weeks prior to the last day of classes. All grades of I must be removed prior
to the award of a graduate degree.

UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN GRADUATE COURSES
With permission of the instructor and the college concerned, an undergraduate
student at the University of Florida may enroll in graduate-level courses (5000 and
6000 level) if the student has senior standing and an upper-division grade-point
average of at least 2.8. After a student has been accepted in the Graduate School, up
to 10 hours 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
provided credit for the course has not been used for an undergraduate degree.
CONCURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS
A graduate student who wishes to pursue degrees in 2 programs concurrently
must have the written approval of the chairperson of each department involved and
the Dean of the Graduate School. If the request is approved, the student must be
officially admitted to both programs through regular procedures. If the student is ap-
proved to pursue 2 master's programs, no more than 10 hours of course work from 1
degree program may be applied toward meeting the requirements for the second
master's degree.
INFORMATION FOR VETERANS
The University of Florida is approved for the education and training of veterans
under all public laws in effect; i.e., Chapter 31, Title 38, U.S. Code (Disabled
Veterans); Chapter 34, Title 38, U.S. Code (Cold-War G.I. Bill); and Chapter 35, Ti-
tle 38, U.S. Code (Children of Deceased or Disabled Veterans).
Students who may be eligible for educational benefits under any Veterans Ad-
ministration program are urged to contact the Veterans Affairs Office, 124 Tigert
Hall, as soon as they are accepted for admission.
Students expecting to receive benefits under one of these programs must file an
application with the Office of the Registrar. No certification can be made until the







GENERAL REGULATIONS / 13

application is on file. Benefits are determined by the Veterans Administration, and
the University certifies according to these rules and regulations.
The Registrar's Office maintains students' academic records. A progress report
is sent to each student at the end of the term indicating grades, cumulative hours,
grade points, etc. For information on student conduct policies see Undergraduate
Catalog, page 24.
UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP
Any graduate student may be denied further registration in the University or in a
graduate program should progress toward completion of the planned program
become unsatisfactory to the department, college, or Dean of the Graduate School.
Failure to maintain a B average in all work attempted is, by definition, unsatisfactory
progress.
CHANGE OF MAJOR OR COLLEGE
Graduate students who wish to change their major or college must make formal
application through the Office of the Registrar and receive approval of the appropri-
ate department chairperson, college dean, and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Deadline dates for such changes as specified in the current University Calendar must
be met.
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 department for
specific information regarding any requirement of a foreign language.
If a department requires that a student meet the foreign language requirement by
satisfactory performance on the Graduate School Foreign Language Tests (GSFLT)
in French, Spanish, or German, the student should contact the Graduate School for
applications and payment of fees. The application deadline dates and examination
times, and dates are listed in the University Calendar. Educational Testing Service
(ETS) no longer administers this examination and does not accept application fees or
issue tickets of admission for these tests.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
Admission to candidacy is not automatic. It requires a formal application dis-
tinct from registration on or before the dates stipulated in the current University
Calendar. Admission to candidacy depends, among other requirements, upon the
maintenance of a B average or higher in the major and in all work attempted. All
grades of I and X must be removed.
EXAMINATIONS
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 or dissertation. All members of the supervisory committee must
sign the appropriate forms, including the signature pages, in order for the student to
satisfy the requirements of the examination.
PROCEDURE FOR FINAL QUARTER
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 Univer-
sity Calendar and by the college, school, or department. Regular issues of Deadline
Dates are available each quarter.







14 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final form, the student
should get instructions from the Graduate School Editorial Office and should request
a records check in the Student Information and Records Office to make certain that
all requirements for graduation have been fulfilled.
When a student registers for the last term, the appropriate fees for the Library
permanent binding of two copies and for microfilming the dissertation must be paid
by the deadline specified in the University Calendar.
A student must be registered for an appropriate load in the University for the
term in which the final examination is given and at the time the degree is received.
AWARDING OF DEGREES
The Graduate School will authorize a candidate to be awarded the degree ap-
propriate 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 in-
ternship or practicum if required, in the major and minor fields, observing time
limits, limitations on transfer credit, on nonresident work, and on level of course
work.
2. The candidate must have a grade average of B or higher in the major and in
all work attempted in the graduate program. All grades of I and X must be removed.
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 department, and college.
4. The dissertation or, if required, thesis or equivalent project, must have been
approved by the supervisory committee and accepted by the Graduate School.
Recommendations for the awarding of a degree include meeting all academic and
professional qualifications as judged by the faculty of the appropriate department.
5. All requirements for the degree must be met while the candidate is a fully
registered graduate student. Students who have been registered in the Graduate
School at least 1 quarter of each successive calendar year may graduate according to
the curriculum under which they entered, provided the courses are still offered by the
University.
ATTENDANCE AT COMMENCEMENT
Graduates who are to receive advanced degrees are urged to attend Commence-
ment in order to accept personally the honor indicated by the appropriate hood. The
student may arrange through the University Bookstore for the proper academic attire
to be worn at Commencement.

REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES
GENERAL REGULATIONS
The following regulations represent those of the Graduate School. Colleges and
departments 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.

REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 15

viser, supervisory committee, or representative of the department. Nd more than 10
credits from a previous master's degree program may be applied toward a second
master's degree.
If a minor is chosen, at least 8 credits of work are required in the minor field.
Two 8-credit minors may be taken with departmental permission. Minor work must
be in a department other than the major; in special cases this requirement may be
modified, but only with the written permission of the Dean of the Graduate School.
Degree Requirements.-Unless otherwise specified, for any master's degree, the
student must earn a minimum of 45 credits as a graduate student at the University of
Florida, of which no more than 10 quarter hours of course work 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.
Transfer of Credits.-Courses open only for graduate credit to the extent of 10
quarter hours earned with a grade of A, B+, or B may be transferred from an institu-
tion approved for this purpose by the Graduate School. Credits transferred will be
applied toward meeting the degree requirements but the grades earned will not be
computed in the student's grade-point average. Acceptance of transfer credit requires
approval of the student's supervisory committee and the Dean of the Graduate
School. Nonresident or extension work taken at another institution with the excep-
tion of work taken through the Board of Regents Office for Continuing Education,
may not be transferred to the University of Florida for graduate credit.
Supervisory Committee.-Supervisory committees for graduate degree
programs are nominated by the representative department chairperson, approved by
the college dean, and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. Only members
of the graduate faculty may be appointed to supervisory committees. The Dean of the
Graduate School is an ex-officio member of all supervisory committees.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a thesis must consist of at
least 2 members selected from the graduate faculty. The supervisory committee for a
master's degree without a thesis may consist of 1 member of the graduate faculty who
advises the student and oversees the program. If a minor is designated, the commit-
tee should include 1 member of the minor department who has been appointed to the
graduate faculty.
Admission to Candidacy.-Application should be made through the depart-
ment no later than the last day of classes in the quarter preceding the quarter in
which the student expects to receive the degree. The Graduate Council reserves the
right to deny degrees to persons who have failed to comply with this regulation at the
proper time. The student must have a B average for all graduate work completed and
in all work attempted in order to be admitted to candidacy.
Language Requirements.-(1) The requirement of a reading knowledge of a
foreign language is at the discretion of the department. The foreign language require-
ment varies from department to department and the student should check with the ap-
propriate department for specific information. (2) The ability to use the English
language correctly and effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is re-
quired of all candidates.
Examination.-A final comprehensive examination, oral, written or both, must
be passed by the candidate. This examination will cover at least the candidate's field
of concentration, and in no case may it be scheduled earlier than 6 months before the
degree is to be conferred.
Time Limitation.-All work counted toward the master's degree must be com-
pleted during the 7 years immediately preceding the date on which the degree is to be
awarded.







16 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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 Health Education, Master of Arts in
Journalism and Communications, Master of Arts in Physical Education, Master of
Science in Building Construction, and Master of Science in Pharmacy.
Course Requirements.-The minimum course work required for a master's
degree with thesis is 45 credits including up to 9 hours of the research course num-
bered 6971. All students seeking a master's degree with thesis must register for an ap-
propriate number of hours in 6971. The minimum course work requirement for a
master's degree without a thesis or the master's taken with the nonthesis option is 48
credits excluding credits for which grades of S and U are given. Students pursuing the
nonthesis option may not use courses numbered 6971 or 7980 to meet the credit re-
quirement. Nonthesis degree or nonthesis option students may enroll for courses
6910-Supervised Research, or 6940-Supervised Teaching, in their final term.
Since 6910 and 6940 courses are graded S / U, registration in these courses must be
in excess of the 48 credit minimum requirement for the degree.
For both nonthesis and thesis degrees at least half the required credits, exclusive
of 6971 or 7980, must be in a field of study designated the major. One or two minors
of at least 8 credits each may be taken, but a minor is not required by the Graduate
School. Minor work must be in a department other than the major except in music.
The work in the major field must be in courses numbered 5000 or above. For work
outside the major, courses numbered 3000 or above may be taken.
Thesis.-Candidates for the master's or Engineer degree with thesis must pre-
pare and present theses (or equivalent in creative work) acceptable to their superviso-
ry committees and the Graduate School. The candidate should consult the Graduate
School Editorial Office for instructions concerning the form of the thesis. The
University Calendar specifies final dates for submitting three copies of the abstract to
the office of the Dean of the Graduate School and for submitting the original copy of
the thesis bound with an abstract. The college copy should be submitted to the college
or department by the specified date. Two title pages should be inserted in the original
and college copies. After the thesis is accepted, these 2 copies will be permanently
bound and deposited in the University Libraries.
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 permis-
sion of the supervisory committee to make such a change. This permission must be
forwarded to the Graduate School at least 1 full quarter prior to the intended date of
graduation. The candidate must meet all the requirements of the nonthesis option as
specified above. A maximum of 5 credits earned in 6971 (Master's Research) can be
counted toward the degree requirements only if converted to credit as 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 ap-
pointed 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 quarter of study. The duties of
the supervisory committee are to advise the student, to check on the student's
qualifications and progress, to supervise the preparation of the thesis, and to conduct
the final examination.
Admission to Candidacy.-Application for admission to candidacy for the
master's degree should be made no later than the last day of classes in the quarter
prior to the quarter in which the student plans to receive the degree.







REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 17


The Graduate Council may deny degrees to persons who have failed to comply
with this regulation at the proper time. In order to be admitted to candidacy, the stu-
dent must have (1) maintained a B average or higher in the major and in all work
attempted, (2) chosen a thesis topic, (3) satisfied the supervisory committee, depart-
ment chairperson, and the college dean that the student is qualified to become a can-
didate for the degree. It is the responsibility of the supervisory committee at this time
to make such investigation as is necessary to determine the student's eligibility.
Final Examination.-When the student's course work is completed, or prac-
tically so, and the thesis is in final form, the supervisory committee is required to ex-
amine 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.
At least 3 faculty members must be present at the student's final examination,
but only the members of the official supervisory committee are required to sign the
final examination report. The thesis must be approved unanimously and signed by the
supervisory committee members. A written announcement of the examination must
be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School. Using the form provided for the purpose,
the supervisory committee shall report in writing to the Dean of the Graduate School
not later than 1 week before the time for conferring the degree whether all work has
been completed in a satisfactory manner and whether on the basis of the final ex-
amination the student is recommended for a degree. This examination may not be
scheduled earlier than 6 months before the degree is to be conferred without special
approval of the Dean of the Graduate School.


MASTER OF ARTS IN TEACHING AND MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TEACHING
These degrees are designed for graduate students majoring in departments of the
various colleges of the University who intend to teach in junior or 4-year colleges.
Requirements for admission are the same as those for the regular M.A. and M.S.
degrees in the various colleges, and programs leading to the M.A.T. and M.S.T. may,
with proper approval, be incorporated into programs leading to the Ph.D.
The requirements for the degrees are as follows:
1. A reading knowledge of 1 foreign language if required by the student's major
department.
2. Satisfactory completion of at least 54 credits of work while registered as a
graduate student; at least 50% of these credits must be in courses open only for grad-
uate credit, with work distributed as follows:
a. At least 28 credits in the major and 8 credits in the minor.
b. Nine credits in a departmental internship in teaching. Three years of suc-
cessful teaching experience may be substituted for the internship require-
ment, and credits thus made available may be used for further work in the
major, the minor, or in education.
c. At least 1 course in each of the following: educational psychology,
sociology, and curriculum dealing with the community college. These
courses may be used to comprise a minor.
3. Off-Campus Work: A minimum of 12-25 credits (at the department's discre-
tion), including registration for at least 9 credits hours in a single quarter, must be
earned on the Gainesville campus. Beyond that, credits, including those at the 5000
and 6000 level, earned in courses offered off-campus by the University of Florida
which have been approved by the Graduate School shall be accepted, provided they
are appropriate to the student's degree program as determined by the supervisory
committee.







18 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

4. At the completion of this degree, the student, for certification purposes, must
present from the undergraduate and graduate degree programs no fewer than 54
quarter credits in the major field.
5. A final comprehensive examination, either written, oral, or both, must be
passed by the candidate. This examination will cover the field of concentration and
the minor.
MASTER OF ACCOUNTING
The Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) is the professional degree for students seek-
ing careers in public accounting, business organizations, government, or continua-
tion in the Ph.D. program. The M.Acc. program offers specializations in each of the
4 areas of auditing/financial accounting, management accounting, accounting
systems, and taxation.
The requirements for the degree are 54 quarter credits of course work, of which
a minimum of 24 quarter credits must be in graduate level accounting courses. At
least half of the 54 credits must be in graduate level courses. Courses below the grad-
uate level must have the approval of the major adviser. A final comprehensive ex-
amination is required of all students. Additional requirements are listed under the
General Regulations section for all master's degrees.

MASTER OF AGRICULTURE
The degree of Master of Agriculture is designed for those students who wish ad-
ditional training for business occupations or professions, rather than for those in-
terested primarily in research.
The general requirements are the same as those for the Master of Science degree
without thesis except that 18 credits of graduate courses in a department constitute a
major. Credit toward the degree for courses taken through the Division of Continuing
Education is limited to 25 credits. The student's supervisory committee must consist
of at least 2 members of the graduate faculty. A comprehensive written qualifying ex-
amination, given prior to the beginning of the quarter of graduation, and a final oral
examination are required.

MASTER OF AGRICULTURAL MANAGEMENT AND RESOURCE
DEVELOPMENT
(M.A.M.R.D.)
The M.A.M.R.D. degree program provides an opportunity for graduate study
for students who plan to enter management careers in business firms or government
agencies; it is not recommended for those who plan careers in research and university
teaching. Areas of concentration include farm management, agricultural marketing,
and resource planning and economic development.
The general requirements are the same as those for the Master of Science degree

MASTER OF ENGINEERING
A student seeking a master's degree in the field of engineering may become a
candidate for the Master of Engineering degree with or without thesis, provided such
a candidate has a bachelor's degree in engineering from an ECPD-accredited cur-
riculum or has taken sufficient articulation course work to meet the minimum re-
quirements specified by ECPD. Students who do not meet these requirements may
become a candidate for the Master of Science degree, provided they meet departmen-
tal requirements for admission. The general intent in making this distinction is to en-
courage those who are professionally oriented to seek the Master of Engineering
degree, and those who are more scientifically oriented and those who have science-
based backgrounds to seek the Master of Science degree.
Work Required.-The minimum course work required for the master's degree
with thesis is 45 credits which may include up to 9 credits of the research course
numbered 6971 in all departments. A minimum of 48 credits of course work is re-
quired, with at least 24 credits in the student's major field for both of the above
degrees without thesis. At least 50% of the required 48 credits must be in courses
open only for graduate credit, excluding those graded as S/U. Courses in the major
must be selected from those open for graduate credit. If a minor is chosen, at least 8
credits of work are required; two 8-credit minors may be taken. In addition, a
multidisciplinary minor in departments other than the major may be authorized by
the supervisory committee or program adviser. Courses numbered 3000 and above
may be taken for the minor.
Degree Credit.-In order to qualify for course work toward the Master of
Engineering degree, a student must first be admitted to the Graduate School at the
University of Florida. The amount of course work toward this degree that may be
taken at an off-campus center will depend upon the student's individual program and
the courses provided through the center.
Examinations.-A student seeking the Master of Engineering degree with or
without thesis is required to pass a comprehensive oral or written examination at the
completion of the course work. A student who takes less than half the course work on
the Gainesville campus will be required to pass a comprehensive written examination
administered on the University of Florida campus by an examining committee
recommended by the Dean of the College of Engineering and appointed by the Dean
of the Graduate School. At least 1 member of the examining committee must be
either the student's program adviser or a member of the supervisory committee. If a
minor is taken, another member selected from the Graduate Studies Faculty must be
chosen from outside the major department to represent the student's minor.
Examination requirements for the Master of Science degree are covered in the
section Master of Arts and Master of Science.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ED.S. AND ED.D.
The Advanced School of the College of Education offers programs leading to
the degrees Specialist in Education, Doctor of Education, and Doctor of Philosophy.
These programs are available in five areas: administration and supervision, cur-
riculum and instruction, foundations of education, counselor education, and special
education. The Specialist in Education degree is awarded for a 2-year program of
graduate study. The Doctor of Education degree requires writing a doctoral disserta-
tion. Foreign languages are not required. The Doctor of Philosophy degree in the
College of Education is described under Requirements for the Ph.D.
Programs leading to these degrees are administered through the Office of Gradu-
ate Studies in Education, which carries out the policies of the Graduate School and
the graduate committee of the College of Education. Further information may be ob-
tained from that office. Students are advised to acquaint themselves with the various
programs and requirements of their department of specialization before applying to
the Advanced School of Education.
Admission to the Advanced School of Education is open only to persons who
have met the following requirements:
1. Successfully completed 50 credits of professional course work in education.
Applicants for admission to the Advanced School of the College of Education who
meet all the requirements except for successfully completing 50 credits of profes-
sional education courses may be given provisional admission and full admission
when they have completed the required 50 credits.
2. Presented a record of successful professional experience, the appropriateness
of which will be determined by the instructional department passing on the appli-
cant's qualifications for admission. In some instances, departments may admit stu-
dents with the understanding that further experience may be required before the stu-
dent will be recommended for the degree.
Admission to the Advanced School is based on the following criteria:
1. High scholastic average for previous graduate work (3.5 grade-point average
or above, as computed at the University of Florida, will be considered evidence of
good scholarship).
2. Satisfactory scores on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Examina-
tion (GRE).
The judgment concerning admission of an individual student is made according
to the above criteria by the major department. The department will certify to the ad-
missions committee that the student has met the criteria for admission to the Ad-
vanced School. In all cases the record, experience, and other relevant qualifications
of the person applying for admission are subject to approval of the admissions com-
mittee.







28 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
All persons admitted to the Advanced School of Education must also apply for
and be admitted to the Graduate School of the University.

SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION
Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the development of the
competencies needed for a specific job. Programs are available in the various areas
of concentration within the Departments of Educational Administration and Super-
vision, Foundations of Education, Counselor Education, and Special Education and
the Division of Curriculum and Instruction. The Florida State Department of
Education recognizes this degree for purposes of granting Rank IA certification.
To study for this degree, the student must apply and be admitted to the Ad-
vanced School of the College of Education. The student must also apply and be ad-
mitted to candidacy for the degree no later than the term prior to that in which the
degree is to be awarded. All work for the degree must be completed within 7 years
after admission to the Advanced School.
The Ed.S. degree is awarded at the completion of a planned program with a
minimum of 100 credits beyond the bachelor's degree or a minimum of 50 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 examined (in no
case earlier than 6 months prior to receipt of degree) on both a written and oral ex-
amination by a committee selected by the department chairperson. A thesis is not re-
quired; however, each program, will include continuing attention to a research com-
ponent relevant to the professional role for which the student is preparing.
Students who enter the program with an appropriate master's degree from
another accredited institution must complete a minimum of 50 credits of post
master's study to satisfy the following requirements.
1. 32 credits in courses open only for graduate credit.
2. At least 16 credits in professional education courses open only for graduate
credit.
3. At least 2 quarters of full-time residence on campus in Gainesville.
Eighteen credits for appropriate courses offered off-campus by the University of
Florida may be transferred to the program. Nine credits may be transferred from
another institution of the State University System or from any institution offering a
doctoral degree; however, credit transferred from another institution reduces propor-
tionately the credit transferred from University of Florida off-campus courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's degree only must, during their
100-credit program, satisfy these requirements in addition to the requirements of the
Master of Education degree or its equivalent.

DOCTOR OF EDUCATION
A doctoral candidate is expected to achieve understanding of the broad field of
education and competence in an area of specialization. Programs are available in the
various areas of concentration within the Departments of Educational Administra-
tion and Supervision, Foundations of Education, Counselor Education, Special
Education, and the Division of Curriculum and Instruction.
Admission to a program of work leading to the degree of Doctor of Education
requires admission to the Advanced School of the College of Education, described
previously, as well as admission to the Graduate School.
All courses beyond the master's degree taken at another institution, to be applied
toward the Doctor of Education degree, must be taken at an institution offering the







REQUIREMENTS FOR PH.D. / 29

doctoral degree and must be approved for graduate credit by the Graduate School of
the University of Florida.
Minors.-Minor work or work in cognate fields is required. If 1 minor is
selected, at least 24 credits of work therein will be required; if 2 minors are chosen, 1

Courses in physical education approved by the College of Physical Education,
Health, and Recreation and the Graduate School as subject matter or content courses
may be used in the cognate work or as a minor.
In lieu of a minor or minors, the candidate may present a suitable program of no
fewer than 24 credits of cognate work in at least 2 or more departments. If 2 fields are
included, there shall be no fewer than 8 credits in either field. If 3 or more fields are
included, the 8-credit requirement for each field does not apply. This program must
have the approval of the student's supervisory committee. The College of Education
faculty will expect the candidate to be prepared to answer questions, at the time of the
oral examination, in any of the areas chosen.
Admission to Candidacy.-Admission to candidacy for the degree of Doctor of
Education requires successful completion of the qualifying examinations and ap-
proval of a dissertation topic. Recommendation to the Graduate School for admis-
sion to candidacy is based on the action of the supervisory committee, subject to the
approval of the graduate committee of the College of Education. The State Depart-
ment of Education recognizes this admission to candidacy for purposes of granting
Rank IA certification.
Qualifying Examination.-The applicant is recommended for the qualifying
examination by the supervisory committee after completion of sufficient course
work.
The examination, administered by the student's major department, consists of
(1) a general section; (2) a field of specialization section; (3) examination in the
minor or minors, where involved; and (4) an oral examination conducted by the ap-
plicant's supervisory committee.
If the student fails the qualifying examination, a reexamination will not be given
unless recommended for special reasons by the supervisory committee and approved
by the Graduate School. At least 1 quarter of additional preparation is considered es-
sential before reexamination.
Research Preparation Requirement.-EDF 7486-Methods of Educational
Research, or its equivalent, for which a basic course in statistics is a prerequisite, is a
minimum requirement in all programs. Additional requirements will vary with the
department and with the student's plans for doctoral research.
For information relating to Residence, the Supervisory Committee, Time Lapse,
the Dissertation, and the Final Examination, the student is referred to the material pre-
sented under the heading Requirements for the Ph.D. These statements are applicable
to both degrees.
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D.

Doctoral study consists of the independent mastery of a field of knowledge and
the successful pursuit of research. For this reason, doctoral students act, in large
measure, on their own responsibility; consequently, doctoral programs are more flex-
ible and varied than those leading to other graduate degrees. The Graduate Council
does not specify what courses will be required for the Ph.D. degree. The general re-
quirement is that the program should be unified in relation to a clear objective and
that it should have the considered approval of the student's entire supervisory com-
mittee.








30 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

COURSE REQUIREMENTS
The course requirements for doctoral degrees vary from field to field and from
student to student. The student's supervisory committee has the responsibility for
recommending individual courses of study for each doctoral student subject to the
approval of the Dean of the Graduate School. A minimum of 135 credits beyond the
bachelor's degree is required for the doctoral degree.
Major.-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to do the major work in a
department specifically approved for the offering of doctoral courses and the super-
vision of dissertations. These departments are listed under Graduate Programs.
Minor.-With the approval of the supervisory committee, the student may
choose one or more minor fields. Minor work may be completed in any department,
other than the major department, approved for master's or doctor's degree programs
as listed in this Catalog.
If 1 minor is chosen, the representative of the minor department on the super-
visory committee shall suggest from 18 to 36 credits as preparation for a qualifying
examination. A part of this background may have been acquired in the master's
program. If 2 minors are chosen, each must include at least 12 credits. Competence
in the minor area may be demonstrated through a written examination conducted by
the minor department or through the oral qualifying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not be restricted to the
courses of 1 department, 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 departmental minor.
SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE
Supervisory committees are nominated by the department chairperson, approved
by the dean of the college concerned, and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
School. The committee should be appointed as soon as possible after the student has
begun doctoral work, and in general no later than the end of the third quarter of
equivalent full-time study. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio member
of all supervisory committees and should be notified in writing well in advance of all
examinations conducted by such 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 concerning these regulations. (See Student Respon-
sibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointment to pass on the qualifications of the
student and to discuss and approve a program of study.
3. To meet to discuss and approve the proposed dissertation project and the
plans for carrying it out.
4. To conduct the qualifying examination or, in those cases where the examina-
tion is administered by the department, to take part in it. In either event, no fewer
than 5 faculty members shall be present for the oral portion of the examination.
5. 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 comple-
tion.
6. To meet when the dissertation is completed and conduct the final oral ex-
amination to assure that the dissertation is a piece of original research and a con-
tribution to knowledge. No fewer than 5 faculty members shall be present for this ex-
amination, but only the members of the official supervisory committee are required







REQUIREMENTS FOR PH.D. / 31


to sign the dissertation. The dissertation must be approved unanimously by the
official supervisory committee.
Membership.-The supervisory committee for a candidate for the doctoral
degree shall consist of no fewer than 3 members selected from the graduate faculty.
At least 2 members will be from the college or department recommending the degree,
and at least 1 member will be drawn from a different educational discipline. The
chairperson and at least 1 additional member of the committee will be members of
the Doctoral Research Faculty of the University of Florida.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee will include at least 1 person
selected from the graduate faculty from outside the discipline of the major for the
purpose of representing the student's minor. In the event that the student elects more
than 1 minor, each minor area may, at the discretion of the departments concerned,
be represented on the supervisory committee.
When a minor is not designated, the supervisory committee will include at least
1 member of the graduate faculty from outside the discipline of the major. The Grad-
uate Council desires each supervisory committee to function as a university commit-
tee, as contrasted with a departmental committee, in order to bring university-wide
standards to bear upon the various doctoral degrees.
In unusual cases the doctoral research may require the guidance of a specialist
from an area of study other than that of the chairperson of the supervisory committee.
In such cases the department head may recommend appointment of a chairperson
and a cochairperson, with the latter being a member of the graduate faculty but not
necessarily the Doctoral Research Faculty. A cochairperson may also be appointed
to serve during a planned absence of the chairperson; in this case both the chairper-
son and the cochairperson must be appointed to the Doctoral Research Faculty.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
Any foreign language requirement, or a substitute therefore, for the Ph.D. is
established by the major department. The student should check with the graduate
coordinator of the appropriate department 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.
RESIDENCE
Candidates for the doctoral degree must satisfy the minimum residence require-
ments by completing beyond the master's degree (1) 45 quarter hours in 1 calendar
year, or (2) 52 quarter hours in no more than 6 quarters within a period of 2 calendar
years on the Gainesville campus of the University of Florida. Half-time graduate
assistants fulfill this requirement if registered for 8 hours in each of 6 quarters during
the 2 year period.
Candidates in the College of Agriculture may do their research at certain branch
stations of the University of Florida Agricultural Experiment Station where adequate
staff and facilities are available.

QUALIFYING EXAMINATION
The qualifying examination, which is required of all candidates for the degree
of Doctor of Philosophy, may be taken during the third term of the second year of
graduate study. The examination, conducted by the supervisory committee, with the







32 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


aid of the major and minor departments, is both written and oral and covers the ma-
jor and minor subjects. At least 5 faculty members must be present at the oral por-
tion. The supervisory committee has the responsibility at this time of deciding
whether the student is qualified to continue work toward the Ph.D. degree.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Graduate School must be
notified. A reexamination may be requested, but it must be recommended by the
supervisory committee and approved by the Graduate School. At least 1 quarter of
additional preparation is considered essential before reexamination.
An announcement of the scheduling of each student's qualifying examination
must be submitted in writing to the Dean of the Graduate School. If the student does
not file for admission to candidacy immediately after the qualifying examination, a
written report of the result of the examination must be filed with the Graduate
School Office.
Time Lapse.-Between the qualifying examination and the date of the degree
there must be a minimum of 2 quarters if the candidate is in full-time residence, or
3 quarters if the candidate is on less than a full-time basis. The quarter in which the
qualifying examination is passed is counted, provided that the examination occurs
before the midpoint of the term.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
A graduate student does not become an actual candidate for the Ph.D. degree
until granted formal admission to candidacy. Such admission requires the approval
of the student's supervisory committee, the department chairperson, 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 con-
cerning 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 disser-
tation topic has been approved by the student's supervisory committee.
DISSERTATION
Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to prepare and present a dis-
sertation that shows independent investigation and is acceptable in form and con-
tent to the supervisory committee and to the Graduate School. Since all doctoral
dissertations will be published by microfilm, 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 Dean of the
Graduate School on or before the date specified in the University Calendar. It must
contain an abstract and be accompanied by 4 unpaged separate copies of the
abstract, a letter of transmittal from the supervisory chairperson, and all doctoral
forms. After corrections have been made, and no later than the specified formal sub-
mission date, the fully signed copy of the dissertation, together with the signed Final
Examination Report, should be returned to the Graduate School. The original copy
of the dissertation is sent by the Graduate School to the Library for microfilming
and hardbinding. A second signed copy, reproduced on required thesis paper,
should be given the office of the college dean or the graduate coordinator for subse-
quent delivery to the Library for hardbinding. The supervisory chairperson and the
candidate will each need a copy and, if required, another should also be provided
for the departmental library.
Publication of Dissertation.-All candidates for the Ph.D. and Ed.D. degrees
are required to pay the sum of $25 to Student Accounts, the Hub, for microfilming
their dissertations, and to sign an agreement authorizing publication by microfilm.








EXPENSES / 33

Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copyright the microfilmed disserta-
tion for a charge of $20 payable by a certified or cashier's check or money order to
University Microfilms attached to the signed microfilm agreement form. To assure
receipt of the valuable Copyright Registration Certificate, candidates must give per-
manent addresses through which they can always be reached.

FINAL EXAMINATION
After submission of the dissertation and the completion of all other prescribed
work for the degree, but in no case earlier than 6 months before the conferring of
the degree, the candidate will be given a final examination, oral or written or both,
by the supervisory committee. An announcement of the scheduled examination must
be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School. At least 5 faculty members must be pre-
sent at the oral portion of this examination. At the time of the defense all committee
members should sign the signature pages and all committee and attending faculty
members should sign the Final Examination Report. These may be retained by the
supervisory chairman until acceptable completion of corrections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adherence to all Graduate
School regulations outlined above complete the requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation.-All work for the doctorate must be completed within 5
calendar years after qualifying examination, or this examination must be repeated.

CERTIFICATION
Doctoral candidates who have completed all requirements for the degree, in-
cluding satisfactory defense and final acceptance of the dissertation, may request
certification to that effect prior to receipt of the degree. Certification Request
Forms, available in the Graduate School Editorial Office, should be filled out by the
candidate, signed by the college dean, and returned to the Graduate School for
verification and processing.

EXPENSES
APPLICATION FEE
Each application for admission to the University must be accompanied by an
application fee of $15. Application fees are nonrefundable. Further instructions will
be found in the Admissions section of this Catalog.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS-FLORIDA OR NON-FLORIDA
(Section 6C-7.05, Florida Administrative Code)
(1) For the purpose of assessing registration and tuition fees, a student shall be
classified as a "Florida" or "non-Florida" student.
(a) A "Florida student" is a person who has domicile in and who shall have
resided in the State of Florida for at least twelve (12) consecutive months im-
mediately preceding the first day of classes of the academic term in which the stu-
dent enrolls. In determining residency, the university may require evidence such as
voter registration, driver's license, automobile registration, location of bank ac-
count, rent receipts or any other relevant materials as evidence that the applicant
has maintained continuous residency. Physical presence for the entire 12-month
period need not be required so long as the conduct of the student, taken in total,
manifests an intention to make Florida his or her permanent dwelling place. If such
a student is a minor, it shall mean that the parent or parents, or legal guardian of the







34 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


student shall have domicile in and have resided in the State of Florida for the period
stated above. "Florida student" classification shall also be construed to include stu-
dents who held an immigration and Naturalization Form 1-151, Resident Alien
Registration Receipt Card, or Cuban Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees who are
considered as Resident Aliens, provided such students meet the residency require-
ment stated above and comply with subsection (2) below. The burden of establishing
facts which justify classification of a student as a resident and domiciliary entitled
to "Florida student" registration rates is on the applicant for such classification.
(b) In applying this policy:
1. "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the or a person allowed to
register at the institution on a space available basis.
2. "Minor" shall mean a person who has not attained the age of 18 years,
and whose disabilities of minority have not been removed by reason of marriage or
by a court of competent jurisdiction.
3. "Domicile" for fee paying purposes shall denote a person's true, fixed,
and permanent home and place of habitation. It is the place where the applicant
lives and remains and to which he expects to return when he leaves, without intent to
establish domicile elsewhere.
4. "Parent" shall mean a minor's father or mother, or if one parent has
custody of a minor applicant, it is the parent having court assigned financial respon-
sibility for the education of the student; or if there is a court appointed guardian or
legal custodian of the minor applicant, it shall mean the guardian or legal custo-
dian.
5. The term "dependent student," as used in this rule is the same as a de-
pendent as defined in sections 151(e)(1)(2)(3) and (4) of the Internal Revenue Code
of 1954. A copy of these provisions in the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 is incor-
porated in this rule by reference.
6. A "non-Florida" student is a person not meeting the requirements of
subsection (a) above.
(2) In all applications for admission or registration at the institution on a space
available basis, a Florida applicant, or if a minor, the parent or legal guardian of the
minor applicant, shall make and file with such application a written statement,
under oath, that the applicant is a bonafide citizen, resident, and domiciliary of the
State of Florida, entitled as such to classification as a "Florida student" under the
terms and conditions prescribed for citizens, residents, and domiciliaries of the
State of Florida. All claims to "Florida student" classification must be supported by
evidence as stated in 6C-7.05(1) if requested by the registering authority.
(3) A "non-Florida student" or, if a minor, his parent or guardian, after having
been a resident and domiciliary of Florida for twelve (12) consecutive months, may
apply for and be granted reclassification prior to the first day of classes of any sub-
sequent term; 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 application for reclassification as a "Florida student" shall
comply with provisions of subsection (2) above. An applicant who has been
classified as a "non-Florida" student at time of original enrollment shall furnish
evidence as stated in 6C-7.05(1) to the satisfaction of the registering authority that
the applicant has maintained continuous residency in the state for the 12 months re-
quired to establish residence for tuition purposes. In the absence of such evidence,
the applicant shall not be reclassified as a "Florida student." In addition, the ap-
plication for reclassification must be accompanied by a certified copy of a declara-
tion of intent to establish legal domicile in the state, which intent must have been







EXPENSES / 35


filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, as provided by Section 222.17, Florida
Statutes. If the request for reclassification and the necessary documentation is not
received by the registrar prior to the last day of registration for the term in which the
student intends to be reclassified, the student will not be reclassified for that term.
(4) Unless evidence to the contrary appears, it shall be presumed by the register-
ing authority of the institution at which a student is registering that:
(a) The spouse of any person who is classified or is eligible for classification
as a "Florida student" is likewise entitled to classification as a "Florida student."
This provision will not apply in the case of students who are nonresident aliens or
who are in the United States on a non-immigration visa.
(b) If an applicant's eligibility for classification as a "Florida student" is
based on the residency of the spouse, the spouse shall make and file with the ap-
plication a written statement under oath, that said person is the spouse of the appli-
cant and a bonafide citizen, resident and domiciliary of the State of Florida, en-
titled as such to classification as a "Florida student."
(c) No person over the age of 18 years shall be deemed to have gained resi-
dence while attending any educational institution in this state as a full-time student,
as such status is defined by the Board of Regents, in the absence of a clear
demonstration that he has established domicile and residency in the state, as pro-
vided under subsection (3) above.
(d) Any "Florida student" who remains in the state, after his parent pre-
viously domiciled in Florida or stationed in Florida on military orders removes
from this state, shall be entitled to remain classified as a "Florida student" so long
as his or her attendance at a school or schools in Florida shall be deemed "con-
tinuous." However, such student claiming continuous attendance must have been
enrolled at a school, college or university for a normal academic year in each calen-
dar year, or the appropriate portion or portions thereof, from the beginning of the
period for which continuous attendance is claimed. Such a student need not attend
summer sessions or other such intersession beyond the normal academic year in
order to render his attendance "continuous."
(5) Appeal from a determination denying Florida student status to any appli-
cant therefore may be initiated after appropriate administrative remedies are ex-
hausted by the filing of a petition for review pursuant to Section 120.68 F.S. in the
District Court of Appeal in the appellate district in which the institution maintains
its headquarters or where a party resides.
(6) Any student granted status as a "Florida student," which status is based on a
sworn statement which is false shall, upon determination of such falsity, be subject
to such disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed by the president of the university.
(7) Special Categories-The following categories shall be treated as Florida
residents for tuition purposes if adequate documentation is provided:
(a) A member of the Armed Services of the United States who is stationed in
Florida on active duty pursuant to military orders, the spouse and dependent stu-
dents.
(b) A veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States of America with
twenty (20) or more years of active military service, including the spouse and depen-
dent students of such veteran's immediate family, provided that the veteran is in
Florida at time of retirement or moves to Florida within 1 year following retirement
and files a declaration of Florida domicile.
(c) Full-time elementary, secondary, and community college faculty mem-
bers under current teaching contracts in the State of Florida and their spouses and
dependent students.







36 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


(d) Full-time faculty, administrative and professional and career service em-
ployees of the University System and their spouses and dependent students.
(e) A student certified by his respective state for participation in the
Academic Common Market Program of the Southern Regional Education Board

(f) Florida domiciliaries living in the Panama Canal Zone who have not
established domicile elsewhere, including the spouse and dependent students.
(g) Florida residents who had their residency in Florida interrupted by ser-
vice in the U.S. armed forces, the Peace Corps or other similar volunteer organiza-
tions fostered by the United States government shall be deemed to have had residen-
cy in Florida during times of service in the aforementioned organizations.
(8) Reciprocal Agreements-The Board of Regents may enter into agreements
with appropriate agencies and institutions of higher education in other states and
foreign countries providing for the reciprocal exchange of students enrolled and
prospective in higher educational institutions to facilitate utilization of public high-
er educational institutions in this State and other states or countries. Such agree-
ments may include provisions for waiver or reduction of nonresident tuition for
designated categories of students and may include contractual payments to such
other state or country, subject to the availability of appropriations. Such agreements
shall have as their purpose the mutual improvement of educational advantages for
residents of this state and such other states or countries with whom agreements may
be made.
To establish Florida residence a student applying for admission should com-
plete the residence affidavit on the application form.
To change status from non-Florida a student must present to the Registrar's

OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING
Inquiries about off-campus housing should be directed to the Off-Campus
Housing Office, University of Florida.
The office maintains extensive listings of apartments, houses, rooming units,
trailers, and trailer park lots offered for rent to students, faculty or staff members.
Each spring the office compiles a comprehensive list of major apartment and room-
ing unit developments which have been accepted for referral. This list is available to
anyone who has filed a request for assistance with the office. An extensive general
information and advisory bulletin is available also.
In addition to the units contained in the comprehensive list, the office has on
record several hundred units in other establishments to which referrals are made
after notice of availability is received from the owners.
The balance between housing supply and demand is usually tight for the fall
quarter, continues so for the winter quarter, but loosens for the spring and summer
quarters.
Mutually satisfactory rentals usually can be arranged only after personal in-
spection of facilities and conferences with the owners. Consequently, persons seek-
ing off-campus housing should plan to come to Gainesville at an appropriate time in
advance of the term for which they need housing. Such visits should be made on
week days-not on a weekend-after advance information has been procured.
Shared unit listings are handled by Student Government in cooperation with
the Off-Campus Office. Landlord-tenant problems are handled by Student Govern-
ment's attorney.


FINANCIAL AID

FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM
The Florida State Museum 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 State Museum of Florida and as the University
Museum.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthropology and natural histo-
ry. Its accessory functions as an educational arm of the University are carried for-
ward through interpretive displays and scientific publications. Under the ad-
ministrative control of the director are the 3 departments of the Museum: Natural
Sciences, staffed by scientists and technicians concerned with the study and expan-
sion of the research collections of animals; Social Sciences, whose staff members are
concerned with the study of historic and prehistoric cultures; Interpretation, staffed
by specialists in the interpretation of knowledge through museum exhibit techni-
ques. Members of the scientific and educational staff of the Museum hold dual ap-
pointments in appropriate teaching departments. Through these appointments, they
participate in both the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs.
Graduate assistantships are available in the museum in areas emphasized in its
research programs.
The Museum is located at the corner of Museum Road and Newell Drive in a
modern facility completed in 1970. The public halls are open from 9 a.m. until 5
p.m. The Museum is closed on Christmas Day. There is no admission charge.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS / 47


scientific study of the Museum's holdings. Materials are constantly being added to
the collection both through gifts from friends and as a result of research activities of
the Museum staff. The archaeological and ethnological collections are noteworthy.
There are extensive study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks, reptiles, amphib-
ians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate fossils, and a bioacoustic archive consisting of
original recordings of animal sounds. Opportunities are provided for students, staff,
and visiting scientists to use the collections. Research and field work are presently
sponsored in the archaeological, paleontological, and zoological fields. Students in-
terested in these specialties should make application to the appropriate teaching
department.

UNIVERSITY PRESSES OF FLORIDA
The University of Florida is host to the state university system's scholarly
publishing facility, University Presses of Florida. The goals of the systemwide
publishing program implemented by University Presses of Florida are expressed in
Board of Regents' policy:
S. .to publish books, monographs, journals, and other types of
scholarly or creative works. The Press shall give special attention to
works of distinguished scholarship in academic areas of particular in-
terest and usefulness to the citizens of Florida. The Press shall publish
original works by state university faculty members, but it may also
publish meritorious works originating elsewhere and may republish out-
of-print works.
Each university's faculty publishing committee is independently responsible for
selecting works for publication through the facilities of University Presses of
Florida. At the University of Florida, the University Press Board of Managers over-
sees the locally determined publishing program.
The purpose of the University of Florida Press is to encourage, seek out, and
publish original and scholarly manuscripts which will aid in developing the Univer-
sity as a recognized center of research and scholarship.
In addition to its broad range of state, regional, and Latin American titles, the
Press publishes books of general interest and 5 separate series in Floridiana, geron-
tology, humanities, Latin American studies, and social sciences. It is also the
publisher of the Handbook of Latin American Studies, sponsored by the Library of
Congress.
The Press Board of Managers, 15 faculty experts appointed by the President of
the University, determines policies of publication relating to the acceptance or re-
jection of manuscripts and the issuance of author contracts. Each year the board ex-
amines numerous manuscripts submitted not only by the University faculty but by
authors from all over the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
University Presses of Florida is a member of the Association of American
University Presses and of the Association of American Publishers, Inc.
Students and members of the faculty and staff are cordially invited to visit the
Press offices at 15 N.W. 15th Street, adjacent to the campus.

INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE STUDIES
PROGRAMS
INTERNATIONAL STUDIES
As the leading institution of higher education in the state, the University of
Florida has long been aware of Florida's unique international position. By the







48 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


beginning of this century, the University had begun to focus its attention on the
Latin American nations. Advanced degrees were.given in Latin American studies as
early as 1927, and by the midcentury a School of Inter-American Studies had been
formed.
During the last 2 decades, the University of Florida's commitment to interna-
tional studies has expanded rapidly. This expansion has resulted in the creation of a
Center for Latin American Studies, a Center for African Studies, a Center for Tro-
pical Agriculture, a program in International Relations, and an English Language
Institute for speakers of other languages. Programs in Asian Studies, Soviet and East
European Studies, and West European Studies have been added to the undergrad-
uate curriculum. The University of Florida has participated in programs of assis-
tance and development in many major areas of the world: Africa, South America,
Central America, and Southeast Asia. There has also been a corresponding increase
in the number of faculty members involved in teaching and in research within the
field of international studies.
As evidence of its commitment to international programs, the University
opened, in January 1971, the $1.6 million federally funded Graduate School and
International Studies Building, dedicated and named Linton E. Grinter Hall. The
modern 4-story building contains 60 faculty offices, 102 study cubicles, and 9 semi-
nar rdoms, as well as the office of the Graduate School and Sponsored Research.
The expansion of efforts in these directions represents a conviction on the part
of the University that today's students must be aware, in more than a superficial
way, of developments and trends outside our national boundaries if they are to live
in a world of peace and harmony. International education is essential for the citizen-
ry and leaders of the twenty-first century-the students of today.
The Center for African Studies, established with financial assistance under Ti-
tle VI of the National Defense Education Act, is responsible for the direction and
coordination of interdisciplinary instructional and research activities related to
Africa. It cooperates with departments in administering and staffing a coordinated
Certificate Program in African Studies. This program 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 a degree through a specific department are eligible to compete
for graduate assistantships and Title VI (NDFL) fellowships through the Center for
African Studies.
Extracurricular Activities.-The Center regularly sponsors conferences on
African topics, and a colloquium series-BARAZA-with invited lecturers. The
Center has a fairly wide ranging set of outreach activities addressed to public school
teachers as well as community colleges and other universities. Two major functions
are the publication of the Bulletin of the Southern Association of Africanists, and a
traveling African art exhibit.
Library Resources.-The Center supports directly as well as through various
departments selective library acquisitions to meet the instructional and research
needs of the faculty and students. The Office of Instructional Resources holds a
number of educational films on African topics, and the audiovisual library of the
Department of Art holds approximately 5,000 African art slides.
African Art.-The University Gallery holds 121 pieces of African sculpture.
The Rosenbloom Collection, 37 pieces of African sculpture, is housed at the
Florida State Museum.
Graduate Degree Programs.--The African Studies Center does not offer inter-







SPECIAL PROGRAMS / 49


disciplinary graduate degrees. With the cooperation of its participating departments,
it offers a Certificate in African Studies in conjunction with the M.A. and Ph.D.
degrees.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Studies with the Master of Arts
degree are (a) at least 24 credits of course work in a departmental major, 20 of
which should relate to Africa; (b) 12 credits of course work related to Africa and
distributed in at least 2 other departments; (c) a structural knowledge of an African
language; and (d) a thesis on an African topic.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Studies with the doctoral degree are

language or area course work in 2 or more departments outside the major; (c) a dis-
sertation on an African topic based on field work in Africa; (d) knowledge of a
language appropriate to the area of specialization.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the Center should be ad-
dressed to the Director, Center for African Studies, 470 Grinter Hall.
The English Language Institute offers a noncredit, nondegree program in
English as a second language for students with some knowledge of the language who
wish to increase their competence. The program, which may be taken any quarter of
the academic year, emphasizes the oral and written skills needed by students who
plan to attend a university in the United States. In addition to regular English
Language Institute testing, institutional administration of TOEFL is given near the
end of each quarter.
Further information is available from the Director, English Language Institute,
Grinter Hall.
International Relations, a field of specialization leading to the M.A. and Ph.D.
degrees, is offered in programs through the Department of Political Science. In addi-
tion to the M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in political science which may emphasize
international relations, the University offers an M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in in-
ternational relations. For the M.A. the requirements are the same as for the M.A. in
political science. For the Ph.D. the student has the option of taking either 1) 4 fields
of political science and a single or composite minor, or 2) 3 fields of political science
(plus 2 graduate courses in a fourth field) and 2 minor fields or a composite minor.
The Center for Latin American Studies is responsible for directing and coor-
dinating graduate training, research, and other academic activities related to the
Latin American area.
Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Area Studies. -This is an interdisciplin-
ary area degree offered directly by the Center. Requirements are: A major of 21

competence for their career objectives. It is so structured, however, that students
may move directly from it into departmental Ph.D. programs without interrupting
their academic programs. It is possible for this degree to be awarded with a concen-
tration in Brazilian-Portuguese language and area studies for which the require-
ments are the same except that the credits indicated above must be in Brazilian area
or Portuguese language content courses, the thesis must be on a Brazilian topic, and
the student must demonstrate a reading, writing, and speaking knowledge of Por-
tuguese.
Master's Degree with Certificate in Latin American Studies.-Through agreement
with the Center, the departments named in the preceding paragraph as well as the
Colleges of Business Administration and Education permit a Latin American con-
centration in the major and minor fields. A Certificate in Latin American Studies
may be awarded to students who complete the master's program in a participating
department and meet the following requirements: (a) 30 credits in the major depart-
ment; (b) a 9-credit minor in another department; (c) a thesis on a Latin American
topic for which 9 credits are given; (d) a reading knowledge of a Latin American

to the tropical environment and its development.
Minor in Tropical Agriculture.-An interdisciplinary minor in tropical
agriculture may be planned at both the master's and doctoral levels by students ma-
joring in agriculture, forestry, and other fields where knowledge of the tropics is rele-
vant. The minor may include courses treating characteristics of the tropics: its soils,
water, vegetation, climate, agricultural production, and the language and culture of
tropical countries.
Certificate Programs. -A program for a specialization (with certificate) in tropi-
cal agriculture for graduate students in the College of Agriculture is available. The
program provides course selection to broaden the normal degree requirements for
those interested in specializing in tropical agriculture. Approved courses must be
selected from four basic groups as follows: area studies, international economics,
tropical ecosystems, and tropical agriculture. For nonagriculture students a similar
program with a Certificate in Tropical Studies is available. Students interested in
these programs should consult the Dean of the College of Agriculture.
Research.--The Center provides research grants to faculty members and their
graduate students and assists in the coordination of interdisciplinary research funded
elsewhere. Development assistance contracts in agriculture and related fields fre-
quently have research components.

Forest Resources and Conservation pursuing a minor in tropical agriculture are
eligible for research grants awarded by the Center through academic departments.
Other Activities.-The Center seeks a broad dissemination of knowledge about
tropical agriculture through the sponsoring of conferences and seminars featuring
leading authorities on the tropics; publication of books, monographs, and proceed-
ings; and through acquisition of materials for the library and the data bank.
The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a consortium of major educa-
tional and research institutions in the United States and abroad, created to promote
understanding of tropical environments and their intelligent use by man. The Univer-
sity of Florida is a charter member. Graduate field courses in Central America are
coordinated from the regional office in Costa Rica. Courses with varying content are
offered in the agricultural sciences, earth sciences, forestry, geography, marine
science, meteorology, and terrestrial biology during the winter, spring, and summer
terms. Additional courses are being planned. Students are selected on a competitive
basis from universities throughout the country. A University of Florida graduate stu-
dent may register for 12 credits in an appropriate departmental course cross-listed
with OTS, e.g., PCB 6357C or GEA 6109. The University of Florida does not re-
quire tuition for OTS courses. OTS offers pilot-study research grants to junior
faculty and graduate students who have had limited tropical experience. Further in-
formation can be obtained from the OTS campus office located in the Center for
Tropical Agriculture, 2001 McCarty Hall.

BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

Biophysics and bioengineering are interdisciplinary areas which bring the con-
cepts and methods of the basic and applied physical sciences to bear upon biological
problems. Students may elect I or another of these programs depending upon their
backgrounds, the extent of their interest and abilities in physical sciences, and their
concern with and competence in development of new physics or engineering for use
in biology.
One program is conducted under the supervision of a Biophysics Council,
which includes representatives from the Colleges of Agriculture, Liberal Arts and
Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Several departments offer biophysics options
at the graduate level. A student interested in such an option must qualify for grad-
uate study in a department and satisfy the advanced degree requirements established
by the departmental faculty. The Biophysics Council may then provide individual
guidance in curricular matters. For information on this program, write to the repre-
sentative of the Biophysics Council in one of the following departments: Biochemis-
try and Molecular Biology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Electrical Engineer-
ing, Entomology and Nematology, Materials Science and Engineering,
Microbiology and Cell Science, and Zoology. The Council representative in Physics
should be consulted for advice on courses and seminars in biological physics.
The Departments of Chemical and Electrical Engineering offer master's and
doctoral study programs in biochemical and biomedical engineering, respectively;
and advanced study and research in biomaterials is available in the Department of
Materials Science and Engineering. Write to the department concerned for further
information.
A program in biological physics is conducted within the Department of
Physics. Students in this option must qualify for admission to graduate studies in
physics and satisfy all of the requirements for a regular advanced degree in the
department. In addition these students must prepare themselves in organic and
physical chemistry and general biology, to the extent that they can study and
demonstrate knowledgeability in molecular biology, cytology, and physiology.
Research studies are generally conducted in collaboration with scientists in biologi-
cal or medical fields on this campus or elsewhere. Doctoral candidates must con-
tribute to new knowledge in both physics and biology, and demonstrate ability to
select for themselves significant new problems in biology. This program is
monitored by the graduate faculty in physics and by 2 interdisciplinary advisory
committees; of the latter 2, 1 is comprised of members from pertinent physical and
biological disciplines on this campus, and the other of bioscientists from outside the
University. For further information write to the Biological Physics Program,
Department of Physics.
Attention should also be given to the program of the Center for Sensory
Studies, as described in the section on Interdisciplinary Research Centers, since that
Center includes other biophysical programs.
The Division of Biological Sciences is organized within the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences to provide coordination in the biological sciences. The Division,
with a staff from many disciplines, has organized graduate programs in ecology and
population biology, physiology, tropical biology, evolutionary biology, marine
biology, paleobiology, and systematics. Each faculty is responsible for developing
and supervising a core program in its special area. In addition to cross-department
programs, the Division serves to coordinate biological science wherever it exists in
the University and to operate marine research stations on the east and west coasts of

RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS
FLORIDA AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATIONS
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations are responsible for research
leading to the improvement of all phases of Florida's widely varied agricultural pro-
duction, processing, and marketing. The statewide research program is administered
from the University of Florida campus by the Dean for Research and includes main
station departments as well as Agricultural Research and Education Centers operat-
ing as an integral administrative unit. As a statewide agency having agricultural
research as its primary objective, each station cooperates closely with numerous
Florida agricultural agencies and organizatations.
Many members of the research staff of the Agricultural Experiment Stations are
also members of the faculty of the College of Agriculture as are some in the
Cooperative Extension Service and the Center for Tropical Agriculture. These 3
agricultural units of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences work cooperatively in many areas under the administration of the Vice
President for Agricultural Affairs.
Funds for graduate assistants are made available to encourage graduate training
and professional scientific improvement.
Research at the main station is conducted within 21 areas-Agricultural
Engineering, Agricultural and Extension Education, Agronomy, Animal Science,
Botany, Dairy Science, Entomology and Nematology, Food and Resource
Economics, Food Science and Human Nutrition, School of Forest Resources and
Conservation, 4-H, Fruit Crops, Home Economics, Microbiology and Cell Science,
Ornamental Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Poultry Science, Soil Science, Statistics,
Vegetable Crops, and Veterinary Medicine. In addition to the above, the main sta-
tion has 6 units vital to its research programs, namely, editorial, library, facilities
operations, planning, business affairs, and the grants office.
The Agricultural Research Centers are located at Monticello, Brooksville, Ft.
Pierce, Immokalee, Dover, Ft. Lauderdale, Hastings, Ona, Apopka, Marianna, Live
Oak, Leesburg, Lakeland, Jay, and Ocala.
The locations of the Agricultural Research and Education Centers are at
Homestead, Belle Glade, Bradenton, Lake Alfred, Quincy, Sanford, and
Tallahassee (FAMU).
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations are cooperating with the
Brooksville Beef Cattle Research Station, Brooksville, a USDA field laboratory, in
its beef cattle and pasture production and management programs and with the Na-
tional Weather Service, Lakeland, in the agricultural weather service for Florida.
In addition to the above, research is conducted through the International
Programs office and the Centers for Environmental Programs and for Rural Devel-
opment.
DIVISION OF SPONSORED RESEARCH
The Division has two general functions: (1) the administration and promotion
of the sponsored research program and (2) the support of the total research program
of the University in a manner which produces maximum benefit to the University








56 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

and the greatest service to the State of Florida. All proposals for the sponsorship of
research, grants-in-aid, training grants, or educational service agreements must
receive the approval of the Division Director. Subsequent negotiations with poten-
tial contracting agencies or sponsors of research projects are carried on under the
Director's supervision.
The activities of the Division of Sponsored Research are intended to stimulate
growth and to assist in expanding a balanced research program throughout the
University. These activities are intimately related to the support of the graduate
program. They are also intended to relieve principal investigators and departments
of many of the detailed administrative and reporting duties connected with some
sponsored research. The duties and responsibilities of the Division are designed to
supplement the prerogative of the principal investigator to seek sponsors for his own
projects and the responsibility of the researcher for the scientific integrity of a proj-
ect. In direct contacts between a principal investigator and a potential sponsor,
however, prior clearance should be obtained from the Division to insure a unifor-
mity in contract requirements and to avoid duplication of negotiations with the
same sponsor.
The Dean of the Graduate School is the Director of the Division of Sponsored
Research and is administratively responsible to the Vice President for Academic
Affairs. Policies and procedures for the operation of the Division are developed by a
Board of Directors working with the Division Director within the general frame-
work of the administrative policies and procedures of the University. The Graduate
Council serves as adviser on scientific matters and on matters relating to the grad-
uate program.
The law establishing the Division of Sponsored Research enables the utilization
of some recovered indirect cost funds in the support of innovative research. The
Board of Directors of the Division has the responsibility for the award of these
funds. For information write the Director, Division of Sponsored Research, 219
Grinter Hall.

FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERIMENT STATION
The Station (EIES) developed from early research activities of the engineering
faculty and was officially established in 1941 by the Legislature as an integral part
of the College of Engineering. Its mandate is "to organize and promote the prosecu-
tion of research projects of engineering and related sciences, with special reference
to such of these problems as are important to the industries of Florida."
The college and the Station are inextricably intertwined-the 2 activities can-
not be separated functionally; they comprise the 2 arms of the whole engineering
body. This is particularly true at the graduate level. In many instances a program in-
itiated primarily as a research activity has developed into a full-fledged academic
department of the college, demonstrating the close interlocking relationship of the
research and teaching functions.
Since the fall term of 1967, seven departments of the College of Engineering
and The Experiment Station have moved into some 310,000 sq ft in 7 modern new
buildings and 1 remodeled building. These improvements, including equipment,
have raised the value of the physical plant of the college to over $13 million.
The laboratories, staff, and facilities of other divisions of the University are
also available to the Station research faculty through many outstanding inter-
disciplinary programs which provide Station support of graduate students in the
physical sciences such as physics and chemistry, as well as engineering. With the
close relationship that exists between teaching and research, students are exposed to







SPECIAL PROGRAMS / 57

many engineering and industrial problems normally not encompassed in a college
program.
The Station receives only a small portion of its operating revenue from the
state. The major support of its research activities is derived from contracts with
government agencies, foundations, and industrial organizations. Large and small
manufacturers avail themselves of the finest engineering research laboratories in the
Southeast. The Station has superior facilities and staff in such fields as
microelectronics and integrated circuits, power systems, metallurgy, ceramics,
coastal engineering, soil mechanics, transport phenomena and fluid dynamics,
energy conversion, air and water pollution control, electrochemistry, fast neutron
physics, nuclear rocket propulsion, dynamics and vibrations, communications,
kinetics, ionics, gaseous electronics and plasmas, computer and information
science, and systems analysis.
The Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering Laboratory, a unit of EIES,
conducts research on problems of the shoreline and of coastal and inland waters and
renders advisory service to public agencies and industry. Interdisciplinary and
multidisciplinary research and graduate instruction are closely coordinated and re-
lated to applications of the coastal zone. Many graduate students are supported by
research programs of the COE Laboratory which include (1) air-sea interaction and
the generation of surface waves; (2) scale models of inlets and shore structures;
(3) transportation of sediment by waves and currents; (4) wave and current
effects at offshore nuclear power plants; (5) water temperature variations near
power-generating plants; (6) tidal variations in inland waters; (7) littoral transport
under wave action and many others; (8) coastal defense measures.
Laboratory research facilities include (1) a large area for carrying out hy-
draulic model studies of coastal phenomena; (2) an air-sea interaction facility to in-
vestigate wave generation phenomena; (3) an internal wave facility to investigate
subsurface wave phenomena; (4) a wave tank in which the effects of waves on struc-
tures, sand motion, etc., can be investigated; and (5) a hydraulic tilting flume for
basic studies of the interaction of flows with sediments. Field investigations, repre-
senting a substantial portion of the research effort, are supported by a mobile field
station, three small boats, and a complete range of tide recorders, current meters,
sounding and other auxiliary equipment.
INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH CENTERS
The following centers, developed at the University of Florida and approved by
the State Board of Regents, function primarily to increase knowledge in specific
fields of study and to apply this knowledge to solve many of the crucial problems
that our society now faces. Each center is listed in alphabetical order by the first
substantive in the title.
ACCOUNTING RESEARCH CENTER
The Center, as part of the School of Accounting, conducts basic and applied
research on the relationship between accounting information and decision making
and behavior. It is an organization through which faculty members from various dis-
ciplines may work together in attempting to solve problems facing the accounting

CENTER FOR AERONOMY AND OTHER ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES
The Center (ICAAS) is a community of scholars drawn from many disciplines
represented at the University of Florida. Each scholar has an established profes-
sional knowledge and research capability in the atmospheric sciences or in physical,
biological, or societal disciplines that relate closely to our atmospheric environ-
ment. As an interdisciplinary center, ICAAS promotes pure and applied research in
the atmospheric sciences and provides machinery for translating research into forms
relevant to societal needs. The aeronomical research of the Center deals with physi-
cal, chemical, and electrical processes in the upper atmosphere; e.g., the
stratospheric, ionospheric, and thermospheric regions of the earth. Other activities
include a diverse range of tropospheric and micrometeorological research as well as
biological, ecological, and technological research related to the quality of the air we
breathe. These activities are dispersed widely in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, Agriculture, Engineering, Medicine, Law, and Business Administration.
Current research deals with ultraviolet radiation levels which might reach the earth's
surface should our stratospheric ozone layer be depleted by the effluents from a
future supersonic transport fleet or by the release of flourocarbons. Of specific con-
cern are the potential effects of changes in UV upon the incidence of skin cancer,
agricultural productivity, cells, and insects. A second active area of research encom-
passes community noise measurements and abatement projects supported by the
Florida Department of Pollution Control. A third active area of research relates to
energy/air quality problems of Florida. The Center is involved in a study of sulphur
oxide effects on Floridians in a study encompassing medical effects of sulphur ox-
ide, dose response modeling, risk-benefit analysis, decision modeling, and public
policy alternatives. The primary function of ICAAS is to provide coordination,
direction, and focus to strengthen existing programs and to expand them in direc-
tions, that will help mitigate the socio-technical problems arising from the degrada-
tion of our atmospheric environment. The Center will also help the training of able
students at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels in various pure and
applied aspects of the atmospheric sciences. For information, write the Director,

theory of linear systems over a ring; algebraic methods in system theory, such as
linear systems; algebraic theory of infinite-dimensional continuous-time systems;
classical theory of invariants as related to decoupling and other structural problems.
Recent work has also been directed toward the identification of dynamical systems
and fundamental aspects of decentralized and hierarchical control.
CENTER FOR NEUROBIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
The Center is the focus for several disciplines desiring a comprehensive view of
the nervous system. The program is conducted through formal courses, seminars,
colloquia, and laboratory research in the neurobiological sciences. Normally
trainees may be affiliated with the Center through a basic science or clinical depart-
ment. For information, write the Director, Center for Neurobiological Sciences,
M-242, Medical Sciences Building.
PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION CLEARING SERVICES
The Clearing Service is a research and service adjunct of the Department of
Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. It carries on a con-
tinuous program of research in public administration, political behavior, and public
policy in Florida; publishes research studies and surveys of administrative and
political problems in both scientific and popular monograph form; and publishes a
Civic Information Series annually for assistance to citizen groups in their study of
current issues in the state. For information, write the Director, Public Administra-
tion Clearing Services, 3326 General Purpose Building A.

CENTER FOR SENSORY STUDIES
Sensory studies deal with those systems which provide an organism with infor-
mation about its internal or external environment. Traditionally, these topics range
from vision and hearing to biological clocks and homing activity. Sensory studies at
the University of Florida provide a special opportunity to the talented student be-
cause of the unusual convergence of a strong faculty, a set of unique facilities which







64 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


are available within the University and which are peculiar to the State of Florida
and its regional location in the United States.
The graduate program envisioned by the faculty calls for broad training in an
established academic discipline (psychology, physiology, etc.), an introductory
survey of the senses, in depth training in 1 or more sense modalities (vision, hearing,
chemical, etc.) and special advanced studies in basic or applied techniques. The in-
tent is to develop a broad perspective as well as necessary skills within an
established academic discipline. This provides the foundation upon which sensory
studies will be developed. Affiliation with an academic degree granting program
will also provide an additional basis for future professional affiliation. Since stu-
dents will enter the sensory program with differing backgrounds, the program of
studies will be tailored to the perceived needs of the student.
Correspondence concerning admission to the Sensory Studies Program should
be directed to the Director, Center for Sensory Studies, Box J-284, J. Hillis Miller
Health Center.
URBAN AND REGIONAL RESEARCH CENTER
The Center stimulates and coordinates interdisciplinary research on urban and
regional affairs and works closely with faculty and graduate students in any dis-
cipline concerned with local, state, regional, national, and international human set-
tlements. Since the major thrust of URRC is research, no formal courses or degree
programs are offered. However, URRC seeks the participation of faculty and grad-
uate students who are interested in research on urban and regional topics. The
Center maintains an updated listing of grant announcements and is ready to assist in
the development of research proposals. Further inquiries should be made to the
Director, Urban and Regional Research Center, 2326 General Purpose Building A.

EDITORIAL ASSISTANCE AND INFORMATION
The Graduate School Editorial Office provides a 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 il-
lustrative materials, the treatment of special problems, the use of copyrighted
material, and how to secure copyright 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 acts only in an advisory capacity but








66 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


will answer questions regarding correct grammar, sentence structure, and acceptable
forms of presentation.
3. If the student will bring his final rough draft to the Editorial Office of the
Graduate School, the staff will examine a limited portion and make recommenda-
tions concerning the form of the thesis or dissertation before the final typing.
4. After the first submission of the dissertation in final form, the Editorial
Office staff checks the format, paper stock, and pagination and reads portions of the
text for general usage, references, and bibliographical form. Master's theses are
checked for paper stock, format, reference style, and pagination.
5. Upon final submission, the signature pages and Final Examination forms for
all theses and dissertations are checked against the Admission to Candidacy forms
for the signatures of the college dean (except for the Colleges of Liberal Arts &
Sciences, Business Administration, and Education which require a special statement
on the signature page) and all members of the supervisory committee. It is the
responsibility of the student and the supervisory chairman to notify the Graduate
School in writing of any changes which have been made in the structure of the
supervisory committee.
6. The Editorial Office maintains a file of experienced thesis typists,
manuscript editors, and draftsmen which the student may examine to find assistance
in the mechanical preparation of the manuscript.
ADVISER TO FOREIGN STUDENTS
The office of the adviser is the center for services performed in behalf of foreign
students from their initial inquiries until their return home. The office coordinates
with other University agencies and is charged with responsibilities involving admis-
sions, reception, orientation, housing finances, health, immigration, academic
counseling, petitions, practical training, employment, embassy and foundation
reports, correspondence, legal problems, life counseling, and community relations.
The adviser also assists foreign faculty members.
STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE
The Student Health Service provides a spectrum of medical services which in-
cludes primary medical care, health education, health screening programs, and
mental health consultation and counseling.
The service consists of an out-patient clinic and a 14-bed in-patient unit staffed
by physicians, physician's assistants, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, laboratory
and x-ray technicians, and supporting personnel. It is housed in the Infirmary,
which is centrally located on the campus.
The Service is a unit of the J. Hillis Miller Health Center with its Colleges of
Medicine, Nursing, and Health Related Professions. The facilities of the Health
Center are available by consultation and referral through the Student Health Ser-
vice. Specialty clinics are available in the Infirmary for allergy, minor surgery,
orthopedics, mental health, and women's health care.
The health fee is part of the tuition fee paid by all full-time students. Part-time
students have the option of paying the health fee which would entitle them to the
same use of the Service as a full time student. The health fee covers ordinary out-pa-
tient visits and some laboratory tests. When more complicated diagnostic studies or
hospitalization is required, additional charges are made. For this reason, the supple-
mental student government health insurance plan is highly recommended.
A personal health history questionnaire completed by the student is required
before registration at the University.

NUMBERINGSYSTEM / 73


FLORIDA STATEWIDE COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM
The course numbers appearing in the catalog are part of a statewide system of
prefixes and numbers developed for use by all public postsecondary and participat-
ing private institutions in Florida. One of the major purposes of this system is to
make transferring easier by identifying courses which are equivalent, no matter
where they are taught in the state. All courses designated as equivalents will carry
the same prefix and last three digits.
The classifying and numbering of courses was done by community college and
university faculty members in each academic discipline. Their work was reviewed
by faculty members in all of Florida's postsecondary institutions who made sugges-
tions and criticisms to be incorporated into the system.
The course numbering system was developed so that equivalent courses could
be accepted for transfer without misunderstanding. Each public institution is to ac-
cept for transfer credit any course which carries the same prefix and last three digits
as a course at the receiving institution. For example, if a student has taken SOC
000 at a community college, that student cannot be required to repeat SOC_000 at
the receiving school. Further, credit for any course or its equivalent, as judged by
the appropriate faculty task force and published in the course numbering system,
which can be used by a native student to satisfy degree requirements at a state
university can also be used for that purpose by a transfer student regardless of where
the credit was earned.
It should be noted that a receiving institution is not precluded from using non-
equivalent courses for satisfying certain requirements.
GENERAL RULE FOR COURSE EQUIVALENCIES
All undergraduate courses bearing the same alpha prefix and last three numbers
(and alpha suffix, if present) have been agreed upon to be equivalent. For example,
an introductory course in sociology is offered in over 40 postsecondary institutions
in Florida. Since these courses are considered to be equivalent, each one will carry
the designator SOC_000.
FIRST DIGIT
The first digit of the course number is assigned by the institution, generally to
indicate the year it is offered-i.e., 1 indicates freshman year, 2 indicates
sophomore year. In the sociology example mentioned above, one school which
offers the course in the freshman year will number it SOC1000; a school offering
the same course in the sophomore year will number it SOC 2000. The variance in
first number does not affect the equivalency. If the prefix and last three digits are the
same, the courses are substantively equivalent.
TITLES
Each institution will retain its own title for each of its courses. The sociology
courses mentioned above are titled at different schools "Introductory Sociology,"
"General Sociology," and "Principles of Sociology." The title does not affect the
equivalency. The courses all carry the same prefix and last three digits; that is what
identifies them as equivalent.
LAB INDICATORS
Some courses will carry an alpha suffix indicating a lab. The alpha suffixes "L"







74 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION
and "C" are used as follows to indicate laboratories:
"L" means either (a) a course, the content of which is entirely laboratory or (b)
the laboratory component of a lecture-lab sequence in which the lab is offered at a
different time/place from the lecture.
"C" means a combined lecture-lab course in which the lab is offered in con-
junction with the lecture at the same time/same place.
Examples: Marine Biology OCB_013 (lecture only)
OCB_013L (lab only)
Marine Biology OCB_013C (lecture and lab combined)
with lab
Therefore, OCB_013C is equivalent to OCB_013 plus OCB _013L.
EQUIVALENCY OF SEQUENCES
In certain cases, sequences of courses in a given discipline are equivalent rather
than the individual courses which make up these sequences (for example, MAC_
132, _133, _134). In these cases the subject matter topics may not be taught in the
same sequence, course by course, in several institutions; however, upon completion
of the full sequence at any of the several institutions, students have completed sub-
stantively equivalent content. These sequences are clearly identified in the Course
Equivalency Profiles.
EXPLANATION OF PREFIXES AND NUMBERS
Prefixes and numbers in the course numbering system are not chosen at ran-
dom; they are designed to describe course content in an organized fashion within a
classification system developed for each subject matter area.
Generally, each of the major classifications in a discipline is represented by a
three-alpha prefix. In some cases, one three-alpha prefix has been sufficient for the
entire discipline. A discipline may use as many prefixes as necessary to accommo-
date its major classifications. The logic of the system allows it to be infinitely expan-
dable with minimal disruption to existing numbers.
History, for example, has seven prefixes: AFH, African History; AMH,
American History; ASH, Asian History; EUH, European History; HIS, History-
General; LAH, Latin American History; and WOH, World History. All history
courses in the state will carry one of these prefixes.
A more specific example is AMH 3421.

(Local titles are used for each particular course. The last three numbers are used to
indicate equivalency.)







NUMBERING SYSTEM / 75


The number of prefixes is a function of the extent of the subclassifications of the
given subject matter area.
When this work began there were 920 alpha prefixes in existence; with the new
system there are now 370. As in most states there existed no uniformity in Florida's
prefixes as indicated by the example below:
Discipline Before After
History 20 7
Sociology 24 3
Philosophy 23 4
Religion 17 1
Mathematics 50 10
English 39 6
Nutrition 38 4
Although it is true that a student majoring at one of the 38 participating institutions
may have had only one alpha prefix for his/her major (e.g., Hy-History) and now
there are seven, all prefixes in the same subject matter area will be the same
throughout these institutions.
A complete inventory of taxonomic listings, equivalent and unique courses has
been made available to each academic department of every institution in the state.
Students, through their local advisers, should use this information in designing
programs which will transfer smoothly.
EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE FOR EQUIVALENCIES
The following are exceptions to the general rule for course equivalen-
cies:
A. All graduate level courses (except those which the faculty and their
reviewing colleagues have determined to be substantively equivalent with
undergraduate courses) are not automatically transferable.
B. All numbers which have a second digit of 9 (e.g., ART 2905) are
"place keeper" numbers for such courses as directed independent study,
thesis hours, etc. Courses with _900 numbers must be evaluated individually
and are not automatically transferable.
C. All internships, practicums, clinical experiences, and study abroad
courses, whatever numbers they carry, are not automatically transferable.
D. Performance or studio courses in Art, Dance, Theatre, and Music
are not automatically transferable but must be evaluated individually.

The Department of Agricultural and Extension Education offers major work for
the degrees of Master of Science and Master of Agriculture. The Master of Science,
primarily for those interested in research, requires a thesis, while the Master of
Agriculture does not (see requirements for master's degrees). The master's program in
agricultural and extension education is designed for those persons engaged in teach-
ing agriculture (at all levels) in the public schools of Florida, those in the Coopera-
tive Extension Service, and others in educational and leadership positions in
agriculture who desire additional professional training.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored in agricultural and exten-
sion education as an undergraduate. However, students with an insufficient back-
ground in either agricultural and extension education or technical agriculture will
need to include some basic courses in these areas in their program.

The Department of Agronomy offers the Doctor of Philosophy and the Master
of Science degrees, with specialization in crop ecology, crop nutrition and
physiology, crop production, weed science, genetics, cytogenetics, or plant breed-
ing. Specializations for the Doctor of Philosophy degree also include forest genetics
and physiology. A nonthesis degree, Master of Agriculture, is offered with a major
in agronomy.
Graduate programs emphasize the development and subsequent application of
basic principles in each specialization to agronomic plants in Florida and
throughout the tropics. The continuing need for increased food supplies is reflected
in departmental research efforts. When compatible with a student's program and
permitted by prevailing circumstances, some thesis and dissertation research may be
conducted wholly or in part in one or more of several tropical countries.
A science background with basic courses in mathematics, chemistry, botany,
microbiology, and physics is required of new graduate students. In addition to grad-
uate courses in agronomy, the following courses in related areas are acceptable for
graduate credit as part of the student's major: ANS 6368-Quantitative Genetics;
ANS 6388-Genetics of Animal Improvement; ANS 6715-Ruminant Physiology
