THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY
The Graduate School consists of the dean, two asso-
ciate deans, the Graduate Council, and the graduate
faculty. General policies and standards of the Gradu-
ate 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 mini-
mum general standards of graduate work in the Uni-
versity and for the coordination of the graduate
programs of the various colleges and divisions of the
University. The responsibility for the detailed opera-
tions of graduate programs is vested in the individual
colleges, schools, divisions, and departments. In
most of the colleges an assistant dean or other official
is directly responsible for graduate study in that col-
lege.
The Graduate Council assists the dean in being the
agent of the graduate faculty for execution of policy
related to graduate study and associated research.
The Council, which is chaired by the graduate dean,
considers petitions and policy changes. Members of
the graduate faculty, who are appointed by the dean
with the approval of the Graduate Council, fall into
two categories in accordance 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 disserta-
tions. No faculty member may perform any of these
functions without having been appointed to the grad-
uate 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 be-
came the first Dean of the Graduate School. He was
succeeded upon his retirement in 1938 byT. M. Simp-
son, 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 Grad-
uate School, and Research Professor. Upon becom-
ing Acting 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. Alexander G. Smith of the Depart-
ment of Physics and Astronomy and a former assistant
dean of the Graduate School served as Acting Dean
until the appointment of Harry H. Sisler. Dr. Sisler
served as Chairman of the Department of Chemistry,
Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Ex-


ecutive Vice President of the University of Florida
prior to being named Dean of the Graduate School in
March 1973. In September 1979, Dr. Sisler returned to
teaching as Distinguished Service Professor of Chem-
istry. F. Michael Wahl, Associate Dean of the Graduate
School, Associate Director of Sponsored Research,
and Professor of Geology, served as Acting Dean until
the appointment of Francis G. Stehli in June 1980.
Dr. Stehli came to Florida from Case Western Re-
serve University where he had served as Samuel St.
John Professor of Geology, Chairman of the Depart-
ment of Geology, and Dean of Science and Engineer-
ing. In September 1982, Dr. Stehli became Dean of
the College of Geosciences at the University of
Oklahoma. Donald R. Price, Associate Dean for Re-
search and Professor of Agricultural Engineering,
served as Acting Dean from January 1983 to January,
1985 when Madelyn M. Lockhart became Dean of the
Graduate School. Prior to her appointment, Dr. Lock-
hart served as Associate Dean of the Graduate School
and Professor of Economics. She began a dual ap-
pointment as Dean of the Graduate School and Dean
of International Studies and Programs in June 1985.
Graduate study at the University of Florida existed
while the University was still on its Lake City campus.
However, the first graduate degrees-two Master of
Arts with a major in English and a Master of Science
with a major in entomology-were awarded on the
Gainesville campus in 1906. The first programs lead-
ing to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930, and the first
degrees were awarded in 1934, one with a major in
chemistry and the other with a major in pharmacy.
The first Ed.D. was 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
1986-87 the total number of graduate degrees
awarded was 1,543 in more than 100 fields. The pro-
portion of Ph.D. degrees shows a steady increase. In
1950, 18 Ph.D.s were awarded. In 1985-86, the total
was 276, and in 1986-87, 303 Ph.D.s were awarded.

ADMISSION TO THE

GRADUATE SCHOOL

Application for Admission.-Admission forms and
information concerning admission procedures may
be obtained from the Registrar and Admissions Of-
fice, 135 Tigert Hall. Prospective students are urged to
apply for admission as early as possible. For some
departments deadlines for receipt of admission ap-
plications may be earlier than those stated in the
current University Calendar; prospective students
should check with the appropriate department. Ap-
plications which meet minimum standards are re-
ferred to the graduate selection committees of the
various colleges and departments for approval or dis-
approval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given depart-
ment, the prospective student must satisfy the
requirements of the department as well as those of
the Graduate School. In some departments, available
resources limit the number of students that can be
admitted.
General Requirements.-The Graduate School, Uni-
versity 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
Examination. For some departments, and in more
advanced levels of graduate study, undergraduate
averages or Graduate Record Examination scores
above those stated for the Graduate School may be
required. These criteria are on file in the Office of the
Graduate School. Some colleges and departments
require a reading knowledge of at least one foreign
language. Exceptions to the above requirements are
made only when these and other criteria including
letters of recommendation are reviewed by the de-
partment, recommended by the department, and ap-
proved by the Dean of the Graduate School.





6 / GENERAL INFORMATION


Direct admission to the Graduate School is depen-
dent upon the presentation 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 is in the possession of the Registrar,
and no transcript will be accepted as official unless it
is received directly from the registrar of the institu-
tion in which the work is done. Official supplemen-
tary 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 admit-
ting students for a given academic year, up to 10%
may be admitted as exceptions. Students admitted as
exceptions under the 10% waiver rule must present
both an upper-division grade point average and Grad-
uate Record Examination Aptitude Test Score with
their applications and meet other criteria required by
the University, including excellent letters of recom-
mendation from colleagues, satisfactory perform-
ance in a specified number of graduate courses taken
as postbaccalaureate students, and/or practical ex-
perience in the discipline for a specified period of
time.
The University encourages applications from qual-
ified applicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial,
religious, and ethnic groups. The University does not
discriminate on the basis of handicap or age in admis-
sion or access to its programs and activities.

ADMISSIONS EXAMINATIONS
Graduate Record Examination.-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.

Graduate Study in Business Administration.-Stu-
dents 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 Gradu-
ate Record Examination. Students applying for admis-
sion to the Master of Business Administration (MBA)
program must submit satisfactory scores on the
GMAT. Applicants should contact the Educational
Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for additional
information.

Graduate Study in Law.-Students applying to the
graduate program leading to the degree Master of
Laws in Taxation must submit satisfactory scores on
the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).

FOREIGN STUDENTS
All foreign students seeking admission to the Grad-
uate School are required to submit satisfactory scores


on the GRE Aptitude Test and a score of at least 550 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 TOE-
FL scores but must submit satisfactory scores on the
Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Examination
before their applications for admission can be con-
sidered.
2. Students educated in foreign countries that do
not offer the GRE who apply for admission while
residing outside the United States may be granted,
on the basis of hardship, a one-semester postpone-
ment of the GRE but not the TOEFL. Permission to
register for subsequent semesters will depend upon
the submission of scores on the Graduate Record
Examination.
3. All foreign students applying for admission for
the Master of Business Administration program must
submit satisfactory scores from the Graduate Man-
agement Admission Test before their applications for
admission will be considered.
Foreign students whose scores on the TOEFL and
verbal portion of the GRE are not indicative of ade-
quate writing skills are required to write a short essay
for examination. If the skills demonstrated in the
essay are not acceptable for pursuing graduate work,
the examination will be used as a diagnostic tool for
placement in appropriate courses which will not
count toward a graduate degree.
Graduate students whose native language is not
English must submit satisfactory scores on the Test of
Spoken English (TSE) or the Speak Test to be eligible
for teaching assistantships.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing
Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for registration forms
and other information concerning TOEFL, TSE,
GMAT, and GRE.


HANDICAPPED STUDENTS
The University of Florida does not discriminate on
the basis of handicap in the recruitment and admis-
sion of students, in the recruitment and employment
of faculty and staff, or in the operation of any of its
programs and activities, as specified by federal laws
and regulations. The designated coordinator for
compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
of 1973, as amended, is Ms. Mary Skorheim, Assistant
Dean for Student Services, 129 Tigert Hall, 392-1261.
The Office of Student Services provides assistance
for disabled students. Services are varied depending
on individual needs and include, but are not limited
to, special campus orientation, registration as-
sistance, help in securing auxiliary learning aids, and
assistance in general University activities. Handi-
capped students are encouraged to contact this of-
fice.

CONDITIONAL ADMISSION
Students who are not eligible for direct admission
may be granted conditional admission to the Gradu-
ate School. Students may be granted conditional ad-





GENERAL REGULATIONS / 7


mission to defer final admission decisions until
requisite examination scores or final grade records
are available. Students may also be granted condi-
tional admission to ascertain their ability to pursue
graduate work at the University of Florida if previous
grade records or Graduate Record Examination
scores are on the borderline of acceptability or when
specific prerequisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be
notified by the department 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 to the Graduate
School. Eligible course work taken while a student is
in conditional status is applicable toward a graduate
degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission
will be barred from further registration.

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-).
Postbaccalaureate enrollment is offered for the fol-
lowing reasons: (1) to validate undergraduate records
from nonaccredited and unevaluated colleges; (2) to
provide a means for students not seeking a graduate
degreeto enroll in courses-included in this category
would be students who change their professional
goals or wish to expand their academic backgrounds;
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 trans-
ferred to the graduate record if the student is subse-
quently admitted to the Graduate School. By petition
in clearly justified cases and in conformance with
regulations on courses and credit, it is possible to
transfer up to but no more than two courses totaling
six to eight semester 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 teachercer-
tification must provide the college with a clear state-
ment of certification goals as a part of the require-
ments for admission. Interested students should
write to 134 Norman Hall or call 392-0721 for further
information.

FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE
STUDENTS
University of Florida faculty in tenured or tenure-
accruing lines, as designated by the Florida Admin-
istrative Code, may not pursue graduate degrees
from this institution. Exceptions are made for the
Florida Cooperative Extension Service (IFAS) county
personnel and the faculty of the P. K. Yonge Laborato-
ry School.
Under certain restrictions established by the Grad-
uate Council, persons holding nontenure- or non-
permanent-status-accruing titles may pursue non-
thesis master's degrees at the University of Florida.


Any other exceptions to this policy must be approved
by the Graduate Council. Such exceptions, if given,
are extremely rare and will only be approved when it
is determined to be in the best interest of the Univer-
sity.

STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM
PROGRAMS
Traveling Scholar Program.-This program makes
the entire State University System graduate curricu-
lum available to University of Florida graduate stu-
dents. A course or research activity not offered on
this campus, taken under the auspices of the Travel-
ing Scholar Program at another SUS university, will
count as graduate credit at the University of Florida if
approved by the graduate coordinator or the super-
visory committee chair and the Dean of the Graduate
School. Traveling scholars are normally limited to one
term on the campus of the host university. The deans
of graduate schools of the state universities are the
coordinators of the program, and interested students
should contact the Graduate Student Records Office,
288 Grinter Hall.

Cooperative Degree Programs.-In certain degree
programs, faculty from other universities in the State
University System hold graduate faculty status at the
University of Florida. In those approved areas, the
intellectual resources of these graduate faculty mem-
bers are available to students at the University of
Florida.



GENERAL REGULATIONS
It is the responsibility of the graduate student to be-
come informed and to observe all regulations and
procedures required by the program the student is pur-
suing. The student must be familiar with those sec-
tions of the Graduate Catalog that outline general
regulations and requirements, specific degree pro-
gram requirements, and the offerings and require-
ments 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 Cat-
alog must be approved by the Dean of the Graduate
School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but before
the first registration, the student should consult the
college and/or the graduate coordinator in the major
department concerning courses and degree require-
ments, 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.

CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT
RECORDS
The University of Florida assures the confidentiality
of student educational records in accordance with
the State University System rules, state statutes, and





8 / GENERAL INFORMATION


the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974
(known as the Buckley Amendment).
Information which may be released to the public
on any student is the name; class, college, and ma-
jor; dates of attendance; degrees) earned; awards
received; local and permanent address, and tele-
phone number.
In general, a present or former student has the
right to personally review his or her own educational
records for information and to determine the ac-
curacy of these records. Parents of dependent stu-
dents, as defined by the Internal Revenue Service,
have these same rights. A photo I.D. or other equiv-
alent documentation or personal recognition by the
custodian of record will be required before access is
granted.


STUDENT CONDUCT
Graduate students are subject to the same rules of
behavior that govern undergraduates. The student
conduct code is printed in the Undergraduate Cata-
log.

STUDY LOADS
The University of Florida operates on a semester
system consisting of two 15-week periods and two 6-
week summer terms. A credit under the semester
system is equal to 1.5 quarter credits.
Minimum registration for full-time graduate stu-
dents, including trainees and fellows, is 12 credits.
The minimum registration is reduced for those stu-
dents who are graduate assistants or are otherwise
employed. Guidelines for minimum registration for
students on appointment are provided in the Gradu-
ate Student Handbook as well as the Graduate Coor-
dinator's Manual.
Full-time students, not on appointment, must regi-
ster for a minimum of 12 credits. Part-time status may
be approved by the graduate coordinator for stu-
dents 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.
The minimum study load for students not on as-
sistantship is three credits during Fall and Spring Se-
mesters and two for Summer.

COURSES AND CREDITS
Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be
used as any part of the graduate degree require-
ments, including the requirement for a period of con-
centrated study. 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 exception described un-
der Undergraduate Registration in Graduate
Courses. Courses numbered 7000 and above are de-
signed primarily for advanced graduate students.
No more than five hours each of 6910 (Supervised
Research) and 6940 (Supervised Teaching) may be


taken by a graduate student at the University of Flor-
ida.
A complete list of approved graduate courses ap-
pears 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 semester and the departments should be con-
sulted concerning available courses.
Generally speaking graduate courses may not be
repeated for credit. However, there is no limit on
courses numbered 6971, 7979, and 7980. Other
courses that may be repeated for credit are desig-
nated by max: immediately following the semester
credit designation.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by corre-
spondence may be used for graduate credit.
Professional Work.-No courses taken as a part of a
professional degree (e.g., J.D., D.V.M., or M.D.) may
be used for graduate credit except as approved in an
authorized joint degree program.
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.E.S.S.,
M.H.S.E., and Ed.S. degrees. Extension work taken at
another institution may not be transferred to the Uni-
versity of Florida for graduate credit.
Cooperative Education Program.-At the University
of Florida, the Cooperative Education Program is of-
fered primarily for undergraduate students. How-
ever, the course 4949, Cooperative Work Experience,
one credit, may be recommended to the Graduate
School for minor credit in master's degree programs
provided 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 number 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 usedin calculating the grade-point average.
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), 7979 (Advanced Research), and
7980 (Doctoral Research).
Additional courses for which S and U grades apply
are noted in the departmental 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 grad-
uate degree.
Deferred Grade H.-The grade of H is not a sub-
stitute 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 Curriculum Committee and the Graduate
School. This grade may be used only in special situa-
tions where the expected unit of work may be de-




GENERAL REGULATIONS / 9


veloped over a period of time greater than a single
term.
Incomplete Grades.-Grades of I (incomplete) re-
ceived during the preceding semester should be re-
moved as soon as possible. Grades of I carry no
quality points and lower the overall grade-point aver-
age.
All grades of H and I must be removed prior to the
award of a graduate degree.

UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN
GRADUATE COURSES
With the permission of the instructor and the col-
lege 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 3.0. After a student has been accepted in
the Graduate School, up to six hours of graduate-
level courses earned with a grade of A, B +, or B taken
under this provision may be applied toward a gradu-
ate degree at the University of Florida provided credit
for the course has not been used for an undergradu-
ate degree and provided the transfer is approved by
the department and made as soon as the student is
admitted to a graduate program.

CONCURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS
A graduate student who wishes to pursue degrees
in two programs concurrently must have the written
approval of the chairperson of each department in-
volved and the Dean of the Graduate School. Any
student interested in pursuing concurrent degrees
should discuss the proposed studywith the Graduate
School's Student Records staff prior to applying for
the programs. If the request is approved, the student
must be officially admitted to both programs through
regular procedures. If the student is approved to pur-
sue two master's programs, no more than six hours of
course work from one degree program may be ap-
plied toward meeting the requirements for the sec-
ond master's degree. These six hours must be by
petition to the Dean of the Graduate School.

INFORMATION FOR VETERANS
The University of Florida is approved for the educa-
tion 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, Title 38, U.S. Code (Chil-
dren of Deceased or Disabled Veterans).
Students who may be eligible for educational ben-
efits under any Veterans Administration program are
urged to contact the Veterans Affairs Office, 124 Ti-
gert 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 application is on file. Benefits are deter-
mined by the Veterans Administration, and the Uni-
versity certifies according'to these rules and reg-
ulations.


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.

UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP
Any graduate student may be denied further regis-
tration in the University or in a graduate program
should scholastic performance or progress toward
completion of the planned program become un-
satisfactory to the department, college, or Dean of
the Graduate School. Failure to maintain a B average
in all work attempted is, by definition, unsatisfactory
scholarship.

CHANGE OF MAJOR OR COLLEGE
A graduate student who wishes to change major or
college must make formal application through the
Office of the Registrar and receive approval of the
appropriate department chairperson, college dean,
and the Dean of the Graduate School. Deadline dates
for such changes as specified in the current Univer-
sity 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 depart-
ment for specific information regarding any require-
ment of a foreign language.
If a department requires that a student meet the
foreign language requirement by satisfactory per-
formance on the Graduate School Foreign Language
Tests (GSFLT) in French, Spanish, or German, the
student should contact the Office of Instructional
Resources, 1012 Turlington Hall, for applications and
payments of fees. The examination times and dates
are listed in the University Calendar. Educational
Testing Service (ETS) no longer administers this ex-
amination and does not accept application fees or
issue tickets of admission for these tests.

EXAMINATIONS
The student must be registered for an appropriate
load during the semester in which any examination is
taken. The student's supervisory committee is re-
sponsible for the administration of the written and
oral qualifying examinations as well as the final oral
examination for the defense of the thesis, project, or
dissertation. All members of the supervisory commit-
tee must sign the appropriate forms, including the
signature pages, in order for the student to satisfy the
requirements of the examination.
Qualifying and final examinations for graduate stu-
dents are to be held on the University of Florida
campus. Exceptions to this policy are made only for
certain graduate students whose examinations are
administered at the Agricultural Research and Educa-
tional Centers or on the campuses of the universities
in the State University System that are approved for
cooperative graduate degree programs. These excep-




10 / GENERAL INFORMATION


tions must be justified by individual petitions to the
Dean of the Graduate School.


PREPARATION FOR FINAL SEMESTER
It is the student's responsibility to ascertain that all
requirements have been met and that every deadline is
observed. Deadline dates are set forth in the Univer-
sity Calendar and by the college, school, or depart-
ment. Regular issues of Deadline Dates are available
each semester.
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in
final form, the student should obtain the Guide for
Preparing Dissertations and Theses from the Gradu-
ate School Editorial Office and should request a rec-
ords check in the Graduate Records Office to make
certain that all requirements for graduation have
been fulfilled.
During the term in which the final examination is
given and during the term the degree is received, a
student must be registered for at least three hours
that count toward his/her graduate degree. Thesis
students must be registered for three hours of 6971
and doctoral students for three hours of 7980. Mini-
mum registration for students taking their final exam-
inations or graduating during the summer terms is
two hours of appropriate credit as outlined above.
Students must also apply for the degree at the begin-
ning of the final term.


AWARDING OF DEGREES
The Graduate School will authorize a candidate to
be awarded the degree appropriate to the course of
study under the following conditions (the details of
which can be found under the descriptions of the
several degrees):
1. The candidate must have completed all course
requirements, including an internship or practicum if
required, in the major and minor fields, observing
time limits, limitations on transfer credit, on nonresi-
dent work, and on level of course work.
2. The candidate must have a grade average of B or
higher in the major and in all work attempted in the
graduate program. All grades of I, H, and X must be
resolved. Grades of D and E require a written petition
to the Dean of the Graduate School.
3. The candidate must have satisfactorily com-
pleted all required examinations, qualifying, com-
prehensive, and final, and be recommended for the
degree by the supervisory committee, major depart-
ment, and college.
4. The dissertation or, if required, thesis or equiv-
alent project, must have been approved by the super-

School. Recommendations for the awarding of a de-
gree include meeting all academic and professional
qualifications as judged by the faculty of the appropri-
ate department.
5. All requirements for the degree must be met
while the candidate is a registered graduate student.
Students who have been registered in the Graduate
School at least one semester of each successive cal-
endar 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 Commencement in order to accept
personally the honor indicated by the appropriate
hood. The student may arrange through the Univer-
sity 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 be-
low. Unless otherwise indicated in the following sec-
tions concerning master's degrees, these general
regulations apply to all master's degree programs at the
University.
Course Requirements.-Graduate credit is awarded
for courses numbered 5000.and above. The work in
the major field must be in courses numbered 5000 or

bered 3000 or above may be taken provided they are
part of an approved plan of study. The program of
course work for a master's degree must be approved
by the student's adviser, supervisory committee, or
faculty representative of the department. No more
than six credits from a previous master's degree pro-
gram may be applied toward a second master's de-
gree. These credits are applied only with the written
approval of the Dean of the Graduate School.
If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of work are
required in the minor field. Two six-credit minors may
be taken with 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 Gradu-
ate School.
Degree Requirements.-Unless otherwise speci-
fied, for any master's degree, the student must earn a
minimum of 30 credits as a graduate student at the
University of Florida, of which no more than two
courses, totaling six to eight hours, earned with a
grade of A, B +, or B may be transferred from institu-
tions approved for this purpose by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
Transfer of Credit.-Only graduate (5000-7999) level
work to the extent of two courses, totaling six to eight
semester hours, earned with a grade of A, B +, or B
may be transferred from an institution approved by
the Graduate School or from postbaccalaureate work
at the University of Florida. Credits transferred from
other universities will be applied toward meeting the
degree requirements but the grades earned will not
be computed in the student's grade-point average.




MASTERS DEGREES / 11


Acceptance of transfer of credit requires approval of
the student's supervisory committee and the Dean of
the Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree
must be made during the student's first term of en-
rollment in the Graduate School.
Nonresident or extension work taken at another
institution may not be transferred to the University of
Florida for graduate credit. No courses taken by cor-
respondence or as part of a professional degree may
be used toward a graduate degree.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible
after the student has been admitted to the Graduate
School but in no case later than the second semester
of graduate study.
Supervisory committees for graduate degree pro-
grams are nominated by the representative depart-
ment 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 two members
selected from the graduate faculty. The supervisory
committee for a master's degree without a thesis may
consist of one member of the graduate faculty who
advises the student and oversees the program. If a
minor is designated, the committee must include one
graduate faculty member from the minor depart-
ment.
Language Requirements.-(1)The requirement of a
reading knowledge of a foreign language is at the
discretion of the department. The foreign language
requirement varies from department to department
and the student should check with the appropriate
department for specific information. (2) The ability to
use the English language correctly and effectively, as
judged by the supervisory committee, is required of
all candidates.
Examination.-A final comprehensive examination,
oral, written or both, must be passed by the candi-
date. This examination, held on campus with all par-
ticipants present, will cover at least the candidate's
field of concentration, and in no case may it be sched-
uled earlier than the term preceding the semester in
which the degree is to be conferred.
Time Limitation.-AII work, including transferred
credit, counted toward the master's degree must be
completed during the seven years immediately pre-
ceding the date on which the degree is awarded.

MASTER OF ARTS AND MASTER OF
SCIENCE
The requirements for the Master of Arts and the
Master of Science degrees also apply to the following
degrees, except as they are individually described
hereafter: Master of Arts in Education, Master of Arts
in Mass Communication, Master of Science in Build-
ing Construction, Master of Science in Exercise and
Sport Sciences, Master of Science in Health Science
Education, Master of Science in Pharmacy, Master of


Science in Recreational Studies, and Master of Sci-
ence in Statistics.
Course Requirements.-The minimum course work
required for a master's degree with thesis is 30 credits
including up to six hours of the research course num-
bered 6971. All students seeking a master's degree
with thesis must register for an appropriate number
of hours in 6971.
The Graduate School requirement for a Master of
Arts or Master of Science taken with a nonthesis op-
tion is at least 32 letter-graded credits. many depart-
ments require more. S/U graded courses do not
count in meeting the minimum credit requirements
for a nonthesis option. Students pursuing the non-
thesis option may not use the course numbered 6971.
For both nonthesis option and thesis programs, at
least half the required credits, exclusive of 6971, must
be in a field of study designated the major. One or
two minors of at least six credits each may be taken,
but a minor is not required by the Graduate School.

numbered 5000 or above. Forwork outside the major,
courses numbered 3000 or above may be taken.
Engineering students, working at off-campus cen-
ters, who are pursuing a nonthesis option Master of
Science degree, must take half the course work from
full-time University of Florida faculty members and
are required to pass a comprehensive written exam-
ination administered on the University of Florida
campus by an examining committee recommended
by the Dean of the College of Engineering and ap-
pointed by the Dean of the Graduate School.
Thesis.-Candidates for the master's degree with
thesis must prepare and present theses (or equivalent
in creative work) acceptable to their supervisory com-
mittees 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 sub-
mitting the original copy of the thesis to the office of
the Dean of the Graduate School. The college copy
should also be submitted to the college or to the

cepted, these two 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 non-
thesis option for the master's degree must obtain the
permission of the supervisory committee to make
such a change. This permission must be forwarded to
the Graduate School at least one full semester prior
to the intended date of graduation. The candidate
must meet all the requirements of the nonthesis op-
tion as specified above. A maximum of three 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 spe-
cial topic course.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible
after the student has been admitted to the Graduate
School but in no case later than the end of the second
semester of study. The duties of the supervisory com-




12 / GENERAL INFORMATION


mittee 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.
Comprehensive Examination.-The student who
elects the nonthesis option must pass a comprehen-
sive written examination on the major field of study
and on the minor if a minor is designated. This com-
prehensive examination must be taken within six
months of the date the degree is to be awarded.
Final Examination.-When the student's course
work is substantially completed, and the thesis is in
final form, the supervisory committee is required to
examine the student orally or in Writing on (1) the
thesis, (2) the major subjects, (3) the minor or minors,
and (4) matters of a general nature pertaining to the
field of study. A written announcement of the exam-
ination must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate
School.
At least three faculty members and the candidate
must be present at the final examination. At the time
of the examination, all committee members should
sign the signature pages and the Final Examination
Report. These may be retained by the supervisory
chairman until acceptable completion of corrections.
This examination may not be scheduled earlier than
six months before the degree is to be conferred.

has taken sufficient articulation course work to meet
the minimum requirements specified by ABET. Stu-
dents who do not meet these requirements may be-
come candidates for the Master of Science degree,
provided they meet departmental requirements for
admission. The general intent in making this distinc-
tion is to encourage 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.

as S/U. Courses in the major must be graduate level.
If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of work are
required: two six-credit minors may be taken. In ad-
dition, a multidisciplinary minor in departments
other than the major may be authorized by the super-
visory committee or program adviser. Courses num-
bered 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 pro-
gram and the courses provided through the center.
Examinations.-A student seeking the Master of En-
gineering degree with or without thesis is required to
pass a comprehensive oral and/or written examina-
tion, administered on campus with all participants
present, at the completion of the course work. An off-
campus student who is a candidate for a nonthesis
'degree must take half the course work from full-time
University of Florida faculty members and is required
to pass a comprehensive written examination admin-
istered on the University of Florida campus by an
examining committee recommended by the Dean of
the College of Engineering and appointed by the

REQUIREMENTS FOR
THE DEGREE OF
ENGINEER

For those engineers who need additional technical
depth and diversification in their education beyond
the master's degree, the College of Engineering offers
the degree of Engineer.
This degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours
of graduate work beyond the master's degree. It is not
to be considered as a partial requirement toward the
Ph.D. degree. The student's objective after the mas-
ter's degree should be the Ph.D. or the Engineer de-
gree.
Admission to the Program.-To be admitted to the
program, students must have completed a master's
degree in engineering at an accredited institution
approved by the Graduate School, University of Flor-


ida, and apply for admission to the Graduate School
of the University of Florida. The master's degree is
regarded as the foundation for the degree of Engi-
neer.
The master's degree must be based on the candi-
date having a bachelor's degree in engineering from
an ABET-accredited curriculum or having taken suffi-
cient articulation course work to meet the minimum
requirements specified by ABET.
Course and Residence Requirements.-A total regis-
tration in an approved program of at least 30 semester
credit hours beyond the master's degree is required.
This minimum requirement must be earned through
the University of Florida. The last 30 semester credit
hours must be completed within five calendar years.
Supervisory Committee.-Each student admitted to
the program will be advised by a supervisory commit-
tee consisting of at least three members of the gradu-
ate faculty. Two members are selected from the major
department and at least one from a supporting de-
partment. In addition, every effort should be made to
have a representative from industry as an external
adviser for the student's program.
This committee should be appointed as soon as
possible after the student has been admitted to the
Graduate School but, in no case, later than the end of
the second semester of study or the completion of 24
semester hours.
This committee will inform the student of all reg-
ulations pertaining to the degree program. The com-
mittee is nominated by the department chairperson,
approved by the Dean of the College of Engineering,
and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School.
The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio
member of all supervisory committees'and should be
notified in writing in advance of all committee meet-
ings. If a thesis or report is a requirement in the plan
of study, the committee will approve the proposed
thesis or report and the plans for carrying it out. The
thesis must be submitted to the Graduate School.
The committee will also conduct the final examina-
tion on campus when the plan of study is completed.
Plan of Study.-Each plan of study is developed on
an individual basis for each student. Thus, there are
no specific requirements for the major or minor;
each student is considered as a separate case. If the
plan of study includes a thesis, the student may regis-
ter for from 6 to 12 semester credit hours of thesis
research in a course numbered 6971.
Thesis.-The thesis should represent performance
at a level above that ordinarily associated with the
master's degree. It should clearly be an original con-
tribution; this may take the form of scientific re-
search, a design project, or an industrial project
approved by the supervisory committee. Work on the
thesis may be conducted in an industrial or govern-
mental laboratory under conditions stipulated by the
supervisory committee.
Final Examination.-After the student has com-
pleted all work on the plan of study, the supervisory
committee conducts a final comprehensive oral and/
orwritten examination, which also involves a defense
of the thesis if one is included in the program. This
examination must be taken on campus with all par-
ticipants present.




ED.S. AND ED.D. DEGREE / 19


REQUIREMENTS FOR
THE ED.S. AND ED.D.
The College of Education offers programs leading
to the degrees Specialist in Education, Doctor of Edu-
cation, and Doctor of Philosophy.
The Specialist in Education degree is awarded for a
two-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.
In cooperation with the Graduate Studies Office,
College of Education, programs leading to these de-
grees are administered through the individual de-
partments in the College of Education. It is the
responsibility of the department's chairperson to
carry out the policies of the Graduate School and the
graduate'committee of the College of Education.
More specific information about the various pro-
grams and departmental requirements may be ob-
tained from the individual departments. General
information or assistance is available through the Of-
fice of Student Services in Education, Room 134, Nor-
man Hall.
Admission to the Ed.S., Ed.D., and Ph.D. programs
is open only to persons who have met the following
requirements:
1. Achieved at least the minimum upper-division
undergraduate grade average and verbal-quantitative
total score on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Rec-
ord Examination necessary for admission to the Grad-
uate School, University of Florida.
2. Provided evidence of good scholarship for pre-
vious graduate work (a 3.5 grade-point average or
above, as computed by.the University of Florida, will
be considered satisfactory).
3. Successfully completed 36 credits of profes-
sional course work in education. Applicants for ad-
mission to advanced degree programs in the College
of Education who meet all the requirements except
for successfully completing 36 credits of professional
education courses may be given provisional admis-
sion and full admission when they have completed
the required 36 credits.
4. Presented a record of successful professional ex-
perience, the appropriateness of which will be deter-
mined by the instructional department passing on
the applicant's qualifications for admission. In some
instances, departments may admit students with the
understanding that further experience may be re-
quired before the student will be recommended for
the degree.
The judgment about admission of an individual is
made by the major department, the College of Educa-
tion, and the Graduate School, University of Florida.

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


Counselor Education, Educational Leadership, Foun-
dations of Education, Instruction and Curriculum,
and Special Education.
To study for this degree, the student must apply
and be admitted to the Graduate School of the Uni-
versity of Florida. All work for the degree must be
completed within seven years after admission to the
Graduate School.
The Ed.S. degree is awarded at the completion of a
planned program with a minimum of 72 credits
beyortd the bachelor's degree or a minimum of 36
credits beyond the master's degree. All credits ac-
cepted for the program must contribute to the unity
and the stated objective of the total program. Stu-
dents are tested (in no case earlier than six months
prior to receipt of degree) in both a written and an
oral examination, given on campus by a committee
selected by the department chairperson. A thesis is
not required; however, each program will include.
continuing attention to a research component rele-
vant to the professional role for which the student is
preparing.
Students who enter the program with an appropri-
ate master's degree from another accredited institu-
tion must complete a minimum of 36 credits of post-
master's study to satisfy the following requirements.
1. Twenty-one credits in graduate level courses.
2. At least 12 credits in graduate level professional
education courses.
3. Registration on the Gainesville campus of the
University of Florida for at least six credits in a single
semester.
Twelve credits for appropriate courses offered off-
campus by the University of Florida may be trans-
ferred to the program. Six credits may be transferred
from another institution of the State University Sys-
tem or from any institution offering a doctoral de-
gree; however, credit transferred from another
institution reduces proportionately the credit trans-
ferred from University of Florida off-campus courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's
degree only must, during the 72-credit program, sat-
isfy these requirements in addition to the require-
ments of the Master of Education degree or its equiv-
alent.


DOCTOR OF EDUCATION
A doctoral candidate is expected to achieve under-
standing of the broad field of education and com-
petence in an area of specialization. Programs are
available in the various areas of concentration within
the Departments of Counselor Education, Educa-
tional Leadership, Foundations of Education, Instruc-
tion and Curriculum, and Special Education..
Admission to a program of work leading to the
degree of Doctor of Education requires admission to
the Graduate School.
A minimum of 90 credits beyond the bachelor's
degree is required for the doctoral degree. All
courses beyond the master's degree taken at another
institution, to be applied toward the Doctor of Educa-
tion degree, must be taken at an institution offering
the doctoral degree and must be approved for gradu-

ate credit by the Graduate School of the University of
Florida.
Minors.-Minor work or work in cognate fields is
required. Minor work may be completed in any de-
partment, other than the major department, ap-
proved for master's or doctoral degree programs as
listed in the Catalog. If one minor is selected, at least
15 credits of work therein will be required; if two
minors are chosen, one minor must include at least
12 credits of course work, the other at least 5 credits.
Courses in physical education approved by the
College of Health and Human Performance and the
Graduate School as subject matteror 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 15 credits
of cognate work in at least two departments. If two
fields are included, there shall be no fewer than five
credits in each field. If three or more fields are in-
cluded, the five 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 suc-
cessful completion of the qualifying examinations
and approval of a dissertation topic. Recommenda-
tion to the Graduate School for admission to can-
didacy is based on the action of the supervisory
committee. Application for admission to candidacy
should be made as soon as the qualifying examina-
tion has been passed and a dissertation topic has
been approved by the student's supervisory commit-
tee.
Qualifying Examination.-The applicant is recom-
mended for the qualifying examination by the super-
visory committee after completion of sufficient
course work.
The examination, administered on campus by the
student's major department, consists of (1) a general
section, (2) a field of specialization section, (3) exam-
ination in the minor or minors, where involved, and
(4) an oral examination conducted by the applicant's
supervisory committee.
At least five faculty must be present for the oral
portion of the examination; however, only members
of the supervisory committee are required to sign the
Admission to Candidacy form.
If the student fails the qualifying examination, a re-
examination will not be given unless recommended
for special reasons by the supervisory committee and
approved by the Graduate School. At least one se-
mester of additional preparation is considered essen-
tial before re-examination.
Research Preparation Requirement.-EDF 7486
(Methods of Educational Research) or its equivalent,
for which a basic course in statistics is a prerequisite,
and one other approved course, are minimum
requirements in all programs. Additional require-
ments vary with the department and with the stu-
dent's plans for, doctoral research.
For information relating to Concentrated Period of
Study, the Supervisory Committee, Time Lapse, the
Dissertation, and the Final Examination, the student


is referred to the material presented under the head-
ing Requirements for the Ph.D. These statements are
applicable to both degrees.


REQUIREMENTS FOR

THE PH.D.
Doctoral study consists of the independent mas-
tery of a field of knowledge and the successful pursuit
of research. Consequently, doctoral programs are
more flexible and varied than those leading to other
graduate degrees. The Graduate Council does not
specify what courses will be required for the Ph.D.
degree. The general requirement is that the program
should be unified in relation to a clear objective, that
it should have the considered approval of the stu-
dent's entire supervisory committee, and that it
should include an appropriate number of credit
hours of doctoral research.

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 respon-
sibility for recommending individual courses of study
for each doctoral student subject to the approval of
the Dean of the Graduate School. A minimum of 90
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 specifi-
cally approved for the offering of doctoral courses
and the supervision of dissertations. These depart-
ments are listed under Graduate Programs.
Minor.-With the approval of the supervisory com-
mittee, the student may choose one or more minor
fields. Minor work may be completed in any depart-
ment, other than the major department, approved for
master's or doctor's degree-programs as listed in this
Catalog.
If one minor is chosen, the representative of the
minor department on the supervisory committee
shall suggest from 12 to 24 credits as preparation for a
qualifying examination. A part of this background
may have been acquired in the master's program. If
two minors are chosen, each must include at least
eight credits. Competence in the minor area may be
demonstrated through a written examination con-
ducted by the minor department or through the oral
qualifying examination.
Course work in the minorat the doctoral level need
not be restricted to the courses of one department,
provided that the minor has a clearly stated objective
and that the combination of courses representing the
minor shall be approved bythe Graduate School. This
procedure is not required for a departmental minor.

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE
Supervisory committees are nominated by the de-
partment chairperson, approved by the dean of the
college concerned, and appointed by the Dean of the




PH.D. DEGREE / 21


Graduate School. The committee should be ap-
pointed as soon as possible after the student has
egun doctoral work and in general no later than the
end of the second semester of equivalent full-time
study. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-
officio member of all supervisory committees and
should be notified in writing well in advance of all
examinations conducted by such committees.
Duties and Responsibilities.-Duties of the supervi-
sory committee follow:
1. To inform the student of all regulations govern-
ing the degree sought. It should be noted, however,
that this does not absolve the student from the respon-
sibility of informing himself concerning these regula-
tions. (See Student Responsibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointment to re-
view 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 examination is administered
by the department, to take part in it. In either event,
no fewer than five faculty members shall be present
with the student for the oral portion of the examina-
tion. This examination must be given on campus.
5. To meet when the work on the dissertation is at
least one-half completed to review procedure, prog-
ress, and expected results and to make suggestions
for completion.
6. To meet on campus when the dissertation is
completed and conduct the final oral examination to
assure that the dissertation is a piece of original re-
search and a contribution to knowledge. No fewer
than five faculty members shall be present with the
candidate for this examination, but only the mem-
bers of the official supervisory committee may 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 three members selected from the gradu-
ate faculty. At least two members will be from the
department recommending the degree, and at least
one member will be drawn from a different educa-
tional discipline. The chairperson and at least one
additional member of the committee will be mem-
bers of the Doctoral Research Faculty of the Univer-
sity of Florida.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee
will include at least one person selected from the
graduate faculty from outside the discipline of the
major for the purpose of representing the student's
minor. In the event that the student elects more than
one 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 one member of the
graduate faculty from outside the discipline of the
major. The Graduate Council desires each supervi-
sory 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.
A cochairperson may be appointed to serve during


a planned absence of the chairperson; in this case
both the chairperson and the cochairp erson 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 with approval of the college. 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 commit-
tee, is required of all candidates.


PERIOD OF CONCENTRATED STUDY
Candidates for the doctoral degree must satisfy the
minimum requirements for a period of concentrated
study, beyond the master's degree, by registering for
(1) 30 semester hours in one calendar year, or (2) 36
semester hours in no more than four semesters with-
in a period of two calendar years on the University of
Florida campus. Courses at the 1000 or 2000 level will
not be counted toward the requirement for concen-
trated study.
Candidates in the College of Agriculture may do
their research at certain branch stations of the Univer-
sity 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 semester of graduate
study beyond the bachelor's degree.
The student must be registered in the term in which
the qualifying examination is given.
The examination, conducted by the supervisory
committee or the major and minor departments, is
both written and oral and covers the major and minor
subjects. At least five faculty members must be pres-
ent with the student at the oral portion. The supervi-
sory committee has the responsibility at this time of
deciding whether the student is qualified to continue
work toward a Ph.D. degree.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the
Graduate School must be notified. A re-examination
may be requested, but it must be recommended by
the supervisory committee and approved by the
Graduate School. At least one semester of additional
preparation is considered essential before re-exam-
ination.
Time Lapse.-Between the qualifying examinations
and the date of the degree there must be a minimum
of two semesters. The semester in which the qualify-
ing examination is passed is counted, provided that
the examination occurs before the midpoint of the
term.




22 / GENERAL INFORMATION


ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
A graduate student does not become a candidate
for the Ph.D. degree until granted formal admission
to candidacy. Such admission requires the approval
of the student's supervisory committee, the depart-
ment 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 opin-
ion of the supervisory committee concerning overall
fitness for candidacy, (3) an approved dissertation
topic, and (4) a qualifying examination as described
above. Application for admission to candidacy should
be made as soon as the qualifying examination has been
passed and a dissertation topic has been approved by the
student's supervisory committee. A student may regis-
ter for 7980 (Research for Dissertation) in the term he
or she is admitted to candidacy for a doctoral degree.

DISSERTATION
Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to
prepare and present a dissertation that shows inde-
pendent investigation and is acceptable in form and
content to the supervisory committee and to the
Graduate School. Dissertations must be written in
English. The Dean of the Graduate School may ap-
prove exceptions to this rule on an individual basis
for students majoring in Romance languages and lit-
eratures.
Since all doctoral dissertations will be published by
microfilm, it is necessary that the work be of publish-
able quality and that it be in a form suitable for pub-
lication.
The original copy of the dissertation must be pre-
sented 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
four 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 submission
date, the fully signed copy of the dissertation, to-
gether with the signed Final Examination Report,
should be returned to the Graduate School. The orig-
inal copy of the dissertation is sent by the Graduate
School to the Library for microfilming and handbind-
ing. A second copy, reproduced on required thesis
paper, should be given to the office of the college
dean.for subsequent delivery to the Library for hard-
binding. The supervisory chairperson and the candi-
date will each need a copy and, if required, another
should also be provided for the departmental library.
Publication of Dissertation.-AII candidates for the
Ph.D. and Ed.D.'degrees are required to pay the sum
of $40 to Student Financial Services, the Hub, for
microfilming their dissertations, and to sign an agree-
ment authorizing publication by microfilm.
Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copy-
right the microfilmed dissertation 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, candi-
dates must give permanent addresses through which
they can always be reached.

After submission of the dissertation and the com-
pletion of all other prescribed work for the degree,
but in no case earlier than six months before the
conferring of the degree, the candidate will be given a
final examination, oral or written or both, by the
supervisory committee meeting on campus. An an-
nouncement of the scheduled examination must be
sent to the Dean of the Graduate School. At least five
faculty members must be present with the candidate
at the oral portion of this examination. At the time of
the defense all committee members should sign the
signature pages and all committee and attending fac-
ulty members should sign the Final Examination Re-
port. 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 out-
lined above complete the requirements for the de-
gree.

while classified as a resident for tuition purposes
and who subsequently abandons Florida domicile
shall be permitted to reenroll at an institution of
higher education in this state as a resident for tui-
tion purposes in accordance with the provisions of
Section 240.1201(10), Florida Statutes.


(i) A member of the Armed Forces on active duty
stationed in Florida, and the spouse and depen-
dents of such member, shall be classified as resi-
dents for tuition purposes.
(j) Full-time instructional and administrative per-
sonnel employed by state public schools, com-
munity colleges, and institutions of higher edu-
cation, and the spouses and dependent children of
such individuals, shall be classified as residents for
tuition purposes.
(2) An individual shall not be classified as a resident
for tuition purposes and, thus, shall not be eligible to
receive the in-state tuition rate, until the individual
has provided satisfactory evidence as to his or her
legal residence and domicile to appropriate univer-
sity officials. In determining residency, the university
shall require evidence such as a voter registration,
driver's license, automobile registration, location of
bank account, rent receipts or any other relevant
materials as evidence that the applicant has main-
tained 12 months residence immediately prior to
qualification. To determine if the student is a depen-
dent child, the university shall require evidence such
as copies of the aforementioned documents. In addi-
tion, the university may require a notarized copy of
the parent's IRS return. If a nonresident wishes to
qualify for resident tuition status in accordance with
Section (1)(d) above, the applicant must present evi-
dence of the spouse's legal residence with certified
copies of the aforementioned documents. "Resident
student" classification shall also be construed to in-
clude students to whom an Immigration Parolee card
or a Form 1-94 (Parole Edition) was issued at least one
year prior to the first day of classes for which resident
student status is sought, or who have had their resi-
dent alien status approved by the United States Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service, or who hold an
Immigration and Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a
notice of an approved adjustment of status applica-
tion, or Cuban Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees or
other refugees or asylees so designated by the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service who
are considered as Resident Aliens, or other legal ali-
ens, provided such students meet the residency
requirements stated above and comply with subsec-
tion (4) below. The burden of establishing facts which
justify classification of a student as a resident and
domiciliary entitled to "resident for tuition pur-
poses" registration rates is on the applicant for such
classification.
(3) In applying this policy,
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to
the institution, or a person allowed to register at
the institution on a space available basis.
(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true,
fixed, and permanent home, and to which when-
ever the person is absent the person has the inten-
tion of returning.
(c) "Parent" shall mean an individual's father or
mother, or if there is a court appointed guardian or
legal custodian of the individual, other than the
father or mother, it shall mean the guardian or legal
custodian.
(d) The term "dependent child" as used in this
rule, is the same as a dependent as defined in the
Internal Revenue Code of 1954.




24 / GENERAL INFORMATION


(4) In all applications for admission or registration
at the institution on a space available basis a "resident
for tuition purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent
child, the parent of the applicant, shall make and file
with such application a written statement, under
oath, that the applicant is a bona fide resident and
domiciliary of the state of Florida, entitled as such to
classification as a "resident for tuition purposes" un-
der the terms and conditions prescribed for residents
and domiciliaries of the state of Florida. All claims to
"resident for tuition purposes" classification must be
supported by evidence as stated in 6C- 7.005(1),(2) if
requested by the registering authority.
(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child, the
individual's parent, after maintaining a legal resi-
dence and being a bona fide domiciliary of Florida for
twelve (12) months, immediately prior to enrollment
and qualification as a resident, rather than for the
purpose of maintaining a mere temporary residence
or abode incident to enrollment in an institution of
higher education, may apply for and be granted clas-
sification as a "resident for tuition purposes"; pro-
vided, however, that those students who are non-
resident aliens or who are in the United States on a
non-immigration visa will not be entitled to re-
classification. An application for reclassification as a
"resident for tuition purposes" shall comply with
revisions of subsection (4) above. An applicant who
as been classified as a nonresidentt for tuition pur-
poses" at time of original enrollment shall furnish
evidence as stated in 6C-7.005(1) to the satisfaction of
the registering authority that the applicant has main-
tained residency in the state for the twelve months
immediately prior to qualification required to estab-
lish residence for tuition purposes. In the absence of
such evidence, the applicant shall not be reclassified
as a "resident for tuition purposes." It is recom-
mended that the application for reclassification be
accompanied by a certified copy of a declaration of
intent to establish legal domicile in the state, which
intent must have been filed with the Clerk of the
Circuit Court, as provided by Section 222.17, Florida
Statutes. If the request for reclassification and the
necessary documentation is not received by the
registrar prior to the last day of registration for the
term in which the student intends to be reclassified,
the student will not be reclassified for that term.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident
for tuition purposes" status to applicant therefore may
be initiated after appropriate administrative remedies
are exhausted by the filing of a petition for review
pursuant to Section 120.68 F. S.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for
tuition purposes," which status is based on a sworn
statement which is false shall, upon determination of
such falsity, be subject to such disciplinary sanctions
as may be imposed by the president of the university.

REGISTRATION AND
INSTRUCTIONAL FEES
The University Calendar appearing at the front of
this Catalog sets forth the beginning and ending
dates of each semester.
Fees are payable on the dates listed in that Calendar
or the dates shown on statements sent those par-
ticipating in Advance Registration. Payment of fees is
an integral part of the registration process. Registra-
tion (including payment of fees) must be completed
on or before the proper due date. Student Financial
Services, the Hub, must be provided a properly ex-
ecuted authorization for payment in cases where fees
are to be paid by a previously approved loan, schol-
arship, etc., prior to the deadline published in the
Calendar.
Liability is incurred for all credit hours remaining on a
student's schedule at the close of the drop/add period
each semester.

ASSESSMENT OF FEES
Students must assess and pay their own fees. Uni-
versity personnel will not be held accountable for
proper assessment or mathematical accuracy of cal-
culations.
The fee structure for the academic year 1987-88 is
based upon the number of credit hours per course, as
follows:
Non-Florida
Course Level Florida Resident Resident
5000-9999* $64.58* $189.53**
*Includes Thesis and dissertation courses.
**This figure includes in-state fees.
A student must be registered during the terms of
the qualifying examination and the final examination,
and during the term in which the degree is awarded.

STATE EMPLOYEES' FREE

SPECIAL FEES
Audit Fee.-Fees for audited courses are the same
as those listed above for Florida students. The audit

Student Health Fee.-In prior semesters, the health
fee was a flat rate assessment determined by hours of
enrollment. Since Fall 1986, the health fee has been
assessed on a per credit hour basis and is included in
the basic hourly rate per course level. This health fee
is not a part of any health insurance. Students regis-
tered in off-campus programs may request a waiver of
this fee in combination with the athletic fee and the

subject to the late registration charge.
2. Late Payment Charge-$25.00--All fees must be
paid by2:30 p.m. on the fee payment deadline date

A student who believes that any of the late charges
should not be assessed can complete a petition for
the waiver of the late charge with the appropriate
office as follows:
Late Registration Charge-If due to University error
this charge is assessed, the student may obtain and
complete a petition for waiver of this fee in the
Office of the Registrar. The Registrar will make a
recommendation but the final decision will be
made by Student Financial Services, the Hub.
Late Payment Charge-Petition for waiver of this
charge may be obtained and submitted at Student
Financial Services, Room 100, the Hub.
Graduate Record Examination.-The Aptitude Test
of the Graduate Record Examination is required for
admission to the Graduate School. The fee is $29.

UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES
The University of Florida Libraries form the largest
information resource system in the state of Florida,
and materials are housed in several locations which
support broad disciplinary areas.
Generally, most of the agricultural, science, and
technology holdings will be found in the Central Sci-
ence Library and most humanities and social science
materials, including business and journalism, will be
found in Libraries East and West. However, several
separate collections have been organized which sup-
port particular subject or area studies programs at
both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Hold-
ings for visual arts, architecture, and building con-
struction materials will be found in the Architecture
and Fine Arts Library (201 Fine Arts Building A), most
education materials in the Education Library (1500
Norman Hall), most Latin America materials in the
Latin American Collection (Fourth Floor, Library East),
and most music materials in the Music Library (231
Music Building).
Two major research libraries, the Health Science
Center Library (JHMHC Communicore) and the Legal
Information Center (217 Holland Law Center), have
been formed primarily to support the graduate and
professional programs in the J. Hillis Miller Health
Center and the College of Law.
The Libraries hold over 250,000,000 cataloged vol-
umes, more than 2,300,000 units of microform, main-
tain more than 29,000 current serials, and roughly
20,000 machine readable data files.
The Libraries are a regional depository for U.S.
Federal documents (Documents-254 Library West);
uncataloged federal documents number over
600,000. There are also large collections of foreign,
international, state, and local documents. Most ma-
jor U.S. daily newspapers, as well as the large collec-
tion of Florida newspapers, are available in Library
East and West.
The Map Library (first level, Central Science Li-
brary) is an extensive repository of maps, atlases,
aerial photographs, and remote sensing imagery with
particular collection strengths for the southeastern
United States, Florida, Latin America, and Africa
south of the Sahara.
A number of nationally significant research re-
sources, primarily in support of graduate programs,
have been collected, including the Isser and Rae Price
Library of Judaica (18 Library East), the largest collec-
tion of its kind in the Southeast; the Baldwin Library





SPECIAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS / 33


(second floor, Library East), among the world's great-
est collections of literature for children; and the Park-
man D. Howe Collection of American Literature (Rare
Books and Manuscripts Collection, 531 Library West).
The P. K. Yonge Library of Florida History is the state's
preeminent Floridiana collection (404 Library West).
Its holdings of Spanish colonial documents con-
cerning the southeastern United States are the
largest of its kind in North America. A rich collection
of serials, ephemera, and reference materials dealing
with the performing arts has been gathered into the
Belknap Collection (512 Library West), and the Uni-
versity Archives (450 Library East) maintain the corpo-
rate memory of the University's academic and admin-
istrative programs.
More than 90 percent of the cataloged collection
can be located through the Libraries' online catalog
which is called LUIS (Library Users Information Serv-
ice). Terminals are available in every library location,
and remote access to the online catalog is available
through every terminal capable of linking to the Uni-
versity's mainframe. Library holdings, mainly older or
special items added to the collections before 1975,
which are not available on LUIS can be located
through the Libraries Union Card Catalog, which is
housed in Library West, first floor.
The Libraries are linked to OCLC and arefull mem-
ber-owners in the Research Libraries Group (RLG),
making the RLIN system available in all library loca-
tions.
Current information regarding the hours at Library
East and West may be obtained by telephoning 392-
0341 and for the Central Science Library by calling
335-8500. Information about circulation policy and
library borrower cards may be obtained at any circula-
tion desk.

MAJOR ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTATION CENTER
(MAIC)
The Major Analytical Instrumentation Center
(MAIC) was established in 1982 to help make available
complex modern analytical instrumentation and to
promote its efficient usage on the campus and in the
state. This is accomplished by coordinating cam-
puswide usage, helping to provide resources for
maintenance, upgrading existing instruments and
developing new techniques, planning purchases of
major new instruments, training and supervising
users, and providing professional scientists to super-
vise the solution of individual problems. Center per-
sonnel also direct users to other campus facilities, if
necessary. For example, the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) and the Department of
Chemistry both have a number of analytical facilities
that are available to some users.
The instruments involved include several electron
microscopes (TEM, SEM, AEM) with full analytical and
imaging capabilities, instruments directed toward
surface analysis (i.e., AES, ISS, SIMS and XPS, RBS,
PIXE and NRA), and several mass spectrometers.
Education and training are achieved by a variety of
means. The MAIC offers short courses annually in
several specialized areas, e.g., scanning electron mi-
croscopy, transmission electron microscopy, vacuum
technology, surface science, and optical microscopy.


These are open both for graduate credit and to those
outside the university community. (The Chemistry
Department, IFAS, and the Engineering and Indus-
trial Experiment Station also regularly offer several
short courses of a complementary nature.) Some in-
dividually supervised training directed by Center per-
sonnel is available to graduate students.
The overall aim of the MAIC is thus to make possi-
ble the solution of any scientific or technological
problem that requires state-of-the-art analytical in-
strumentation and to make these capabilities accessi-
ble to all university and state personnel. Cooperation
with state industries is also encouraged where this is
legal and appropriate.
The administration and professional staff of the
MAIC are located in 218 Materials Science and Engi-
neering Building where further information may be
obtained upon request.

MONOGRAPH SERIES
The Graduate School sponsors two monograph se-
ries devoted to the publication of research primarily
by present and former members of the scholarly com-
munity of the University. The Social Sciences Mono-
graphs are published each year with subjects drawn
from anthropology, economics, history, political sci-
ence, sociology, education, geography, law, and psy-
chology. The Humanities Monographs are published
each year with subjects drawn from art, language and
literature, music, philosophy, and religion.

FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM
The Florida State Museum was created by an act of
the Legislature in 1917 as a department of the Univer-
sity of Florida. Through its affiliation with the Univer-
sity, it carried dual responsibility as the State Museum
of Florida and the University Museum.
The Museum is located at the corner of Museum
Road and Newell Drive in a modern facility com-
pleted in 1970. The public halls are open from 9 a.m.
until 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m.
on Sunday. The Museum is closed on Christmas
Day. There is no admission charge.
The Museum operates as a center of research in
anthropology and natural history. Its accessory func-
tions as an educational arm of the University are car-
ried forward through interpretive displays and
scientific publications. Under the administrative con-
trol of the director are the three departments of the
Museum: Natural Sciences, staffed by scientists and
technicians concerned with the study and expansion
of the research collections of animals; Anthropology,
whose staff members are concerned with the study of
historic and prehistoric people and their cultures;
Interpretation, staffed by specialists in the interpreta-
tion of knowledge through museum exhibit tech-
niques and education programs. Members of the
scientific and educational staff of the Museum hold
dual appointments in appropriate teaching depart-
ments. Through these appointments, they participate
in both undergraduate and graduate teaching pro-
grams.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is part





34 / GENERAL INFORMATION


of the Department of Natural Sciences of the Florida
State Museum. The combined Sarasota and Gaines-
ville holdings in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum
of Entomology as the largest in the western hemi-
sphere and the premier Lepidoptera research center
in the world. The Allyn Museum publishes the Bul-
letin of the Allyn Museum of Etomology and spon-
sors the Karl Jordan Medal. The Allyn Collection
serves as a major source for taxonomic and bio-
geographic research by a number of Florida State
Museum and Department of Zoology faculty and stu-
dents, as well as a great many visiting entomologists
from around the world.
The Swisher Memorial Tract and the Ordway Pre-
serve are adjacent pieces of land totalling some 9,300
acres. The land includes an array of habitats including
marsh, lakes, sandhills and mesic hammocks. Jointly
administered by the School of Forest Resources and
Conservation and the Florida State Museum, this area
supports several research activities centering on the
ecology of threatened species and the restoration of
the native longleaf pine growth in the sandhills. The-
sis and dissertation research projects consistent with
the aims of the preserve are actively encouraged.
The herbarium of the University of Florida is also a
part of the Florida State Museum. It contains over
150,000 specimens of vascular plants and 170,000
specimens of nonvascular plants. In addition, the
herbarium operates a modern gas chromatographic/
mass spectrometer laboratory for the study and iden-
tification of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of cura-
tors who encourage the scientific study of the Mu-
seum's holdings. Materials are constantly being
added to the collections both through gifts from
friends and as a result of research activities of the
Museum staff. The archaeological and ethnological.
collections are noteworthy, particularly in the aborig-
inal and Spanish colonial material remains from the
Southeastern United States and the Caribbean. There
are extensive study collections of birds, mammals,
mollusks, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrate and
vertebrate fossils, and a bioacoustic archive consist-
ing of original recordings of animal sounds. Oppor-
tunities 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. Graduate
assistantships are available in the Museum in areas
emphasized in its research programs.

UNIVERSITY PRESSES OF FLORIDA
The University of Florida is host to the State Univer-
sity System's scholarly publishing facility, University
Presses of Florida. The goals of the systemwide pub-
lishing program implemented by University Presses
of Florida are expressed in Board of Regents' policy:
.to publish books, monographs, journals, and
other types of scholarly or creative works. The Press
shall publish original works by state university fac-
ulty 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 oversees the lo-
cally determined publishing program.
The purpose of the University of Florida Press is to
encourage, seek out, and publish original and schol-
arly manuscripts appropriate to a university recog-
nized for the quality of its research and scholarship.
In addition to its broad range of state, regional, and
Latin American titles, the Press publishes books of
general interest.
The University of Florida Press Board of Managers,
15 scholars appointed by the President of the Univer-
sity, determines policies of publication relating to the
acceptance or rejection of manuscripts and the issu-
ance of author contracts. Each year the board exam-
ines numerous manuscripts submitted not only by
University faculty members but by authors from
throughout the world.
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 begin-
ning of the 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 two decades, the University of Flor-
ida's commitment to international studies has ex-
panded rapidly. This expansion has resulted in the
creation of a Center for Latin American Studies, a
Center for African Studies, a Center for Tropical Agri-
culture, a Center for International Student and Fac-
ulty Exchanges, 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 Stud-
ies have been added to the undergraduate curricu-
lum. The University of Florida has participated in
programs of assistance and development in many
major areas of the world: Africa, South America, Mid-
dle 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.
In January 1971, the University opened the $1.6
million federally funded Graduate School and Inter-
national Studies Building, dedicated and named Lin-
ton E. Grinter Hall. Themodern four-story building
contains faculty offices, study cubicles, and seminar












rooms, as well as the offices of the Graduate School,
the Division of Sponsored Research, the Center for
African Studies, the Center for International Studies
and Programs, and the Center for Latin American
Studies.
Theexpansion of efforts in these directions repre-
sents- conviction on the part of the University that
today's students must be aware, in more than a super-
ficial way, of developments and -trends outside our
national boundaries if they are to live in a world of
peace and harmony. International education is essen-
tial for the citizenry and leaders of the twenty-first
century-the students of today.
As an indication of the University's continuing com-
mitment to international studies and its importance
to all areas of graduate education, in June 1985, the
Provost asked the Dean of the Graduate School to
accept the additional assignment of Dean of Interna-
;tional Studies and Programs. In this capacity, the
'Dean coordinates the activities of the University's
Council on International Studies and Programs and
represents the University at various meetings and on
councils and committees relating to international ac-
Sademic activities, projects, and enterprises.
The Center for International Student and Faculty Ex-.
changes is a service organization to facilitate admin-
istration of international student and faculty
exchanges 'and coordination and enrichment of ex-
change and research programs which have an inter-
disciplinary relationship. It provides the vehicle for
application for and receipt of federally funded institu-
tional area studies programs, assists administratively
in functions involving interdisciplinary technical as-
sistance programs abroad, counsels students inter-
ested in study abroad, and assists faculty in seeking
funds for support of international education and re-
search.
The English Language Institute offers a noncredit,
nondegree program in English as a second language
for persons with some knowledge of the language
who wish to increase their competence. Courses at
all levels are offered in the fall and spring semesters
and, in the summer term, instruction is split into two
separate sessions. A student may begin studies in any
of the four sessions. The program emphasizes oral
and written skills needed by persons who wish to
attend a university in the U.S., providing short
courses in a variety of subjects, including TOEFL
preparation. In addition to regular English Language
Institute testing, an institutional administration of
TOEIL is given near the end of fall, spring and sum-
mer terms. Further information is available from the
Director, English Language Institute, 313 Norman
Hall.
The Center for African Studies, established with fi-
nancial assistance under Title VI of the Higher Educa-
tion Act, is responsible for the direction and
coordination of interdisciplinary instructional and re-
search activities related to Africa. It cooperates with
departments in administering and staffing a coordi-
nated 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.

The Center for Latin American Studies coordinates
teaching, research, and service activities related to
Latin America and the Caribbean.
Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Studies.-
The master's degree offered through the Center is
available in two versions, both of which require a 15-
credit major concentration. The disciplinary con-
centration emphasizes training and research in area
and language studies, which develop a greater appre-
ciation and understanding of Latin America's cultures
and" societies, Students concentrate in one depart- *
ment, which may be Anthropology, Economics, Food
and Resource Economics, Geography, History, Politi-
cal Science, Romance Languages and Literatures
(Spanish or Portuguese), or Sociology. This option is,
especially suited to the needs of students who wish to
obtain a well-rounded background in Latin American
Studies before pursuing the Ph.D. in a specialized
discipline.
The topical concentration clusters course work and
research around an applied field focusing on con-
Stemporary Latin American problems. Students con-
centrate in a thematic field such as Brazilian studies,
Caribbean studies, international communications,
museum studies, natural resource management and
conservation, population studies, or tropical agri-
culture. This option builds on prior professional or
administrative experiences and prepares students for
technical and professional work related to Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Other requirements, common to both options are
(1) 12 credits of Latin American area and language
courses in two other departments, including one se-
mester of LAS 6938; (2) a reading, writing, and speak-
ing knowledge of one Latin American language
(Spanish, Portuguese, Aymara, or Haitian Creole);
and (3) a thesis on an interdisciplinary Latin American
topic.
The master's program in Latin American studies is
intended primarily for persons who are not aiming at
a teaching career in traditional academic depart-
ments. Although the M.A. in Latin American studies
is a terminal degree, many past recipients have en-
tered the Ph.D. programs in related disciplines from
which they pursue university teaching careers. Other
graduates are employed in the foreign service, edu-
cational and research institutions, international or-
ganizations, government agencies, nonprofit corpo-
rations, and private companies in the United States
and Latin America.
Prerequisites for admission to the program are (1) a
baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or
university; (2) a grade average.of B for all upper-
division undergraduate work; (3) a combined verbal-
quantitative score of 1000 on the Graduate Record
Examination; (4) a TOEFL score of 550 for nonnative
speakers of English; and (5) a basic knowledge of
either Spanish or Portuguese.

The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a con-
sortium of major educational and research institu-
tions in the United States and abroad, created to
promote understanding of tropical environments and
their intelligent use by man. The University of Florida
is a charter member. Graduate field courses in Cen-
tral America are coordinated with the regional office
in Costa Rica. Courses with varying content are of-
fered in the agricultural sciences, earth sciences, for-
estry, geography, marine science, meteorology, and
terrestrial biology during the 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 grad-
uate student may register for eight credits in an ap-
propriate departmental course cross-listed with OTS,
e.g., PCB 6357C or GEA 6109. The University of Florida
does not require tuition for OTS courses. OTS offers
pilot-study research grants to junior faculty and grad-
uate students who have had limited tropical experi-
ence. Further information can be obtained from the
OTS campus office, 223 Bartram Hall.
The Center for Tropical Agriculture, within the In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, seeks to
stimulate interest in research and curriculum related
to the tropical environment and its development.
Minor in Tropical Agriculture.-An interdisciplin-
ary minor in tropical agriculture may be planned at
both the master's and doctoral levels by students
majoring in agriculture, forestry, and other fields
where knowledge of the tropics is relevant. The
minor may include courses treating characteristics of
the tropics: its soils, water, vegetation, climate, agri-
cultural production, and the language and culture of
tropical countries.
Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA).-A pro-
gram for a specialization (with certificate) in tropical
agriculture for graduate students is available through
the College of Agriculture. Application brochures are
available from the Office of the Dean for Resident
Instruction (College of Agriculture), 1001 McCarty
Hall.
The CTA is designed to prepare students forwork in
both the biological and social aspects of tropical agri-
culture. Students entering the program will receive
individual counseling to insure that each receives
appropriate course work, language preparation, and
(if desired) experience in a foreign country.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credits of
courses. The "typical" certificate program will consist
of 12 to 24 credits. These hours may, with approval


from regular graduate committees, also count toward
the M.S. or Ph.D. Students from all academic back-
grounds who have career interests in tropical agri-
culture are encouraged to consider the CTA. The CTA
Steering Committee will counsel individual students
into appropriate biological, agricultural, social, and
management courses.
Students in the CTA program are required to dem-
onstrate proficiency in a second language. A score on
the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) Language Examina-
tion of 2.0, or a comparable score on a similar exam-
ination, is a prerequisite to receiving the certificate.
While no specific second language is required, Span-
ish, French, or Portugese is strongly suggested.
Experience in a foreign country is not a requisite for
the CTA. It is, however, strongly encouraged. A pro-
posal, filed at least one semester in advance of for-
eign work, is required for credit under the CTA
program.
Research.-The Center provides research grants to
faculty members and their graduate students and as-
sists in the coordination of interdisciplinary research
funded elsewhere. Development assistance con-
tracts in agriculture and related fields frequently have
research components.
Student Support.-Students within the College of
Agriculture and the School of 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 dis-
semination of knowledge about tropical agriculture
through the sponsoring of conferences, short
courses, and seminars featuring leading authorities
on the tropics; publication of books, monographs
and proceedings; and through acquisition of mate-
rials for the library and the data bank.

Biophysics and bioengineering are interdisciplinary
areas which bring the concepts and methods of the
basic and applied physical sciences tb bear upon
biological problems. Students may elect one or an-
other of these programs depending upon their back-
grounds, the extent of their interest and abilities in
physical sciences, and their concern with and compe-
tence in development of new physics or engineering
for use in biology.
One program is conducted under the supervision
of the Biophysics Council, which includes represen-
tatives 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 graduate 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 mat-
ters. For information on this program, write to the
representative of the Biophysics Council in one of the
following departments: Biochemistry and Molecular
Biology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Electrical

tion 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 con-
ducted in collaboration with scientists in biological or
medical fields on this campus or elsewhere. Doctoral
candidates must contribute 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 two interdisciplinary advi-
sory committees; of the latter two, one is comprised
of members from pertinent physical and biological
disciplines on this campus, and the other of bioscien-
tists from outside the University. For further informa-

DIVISION OF SPONSORED RESEARCH
The Division of Sponsored Research (DSR) has two
general functions: (1) the promotion and administra-
tion of the sponsored research program and (2) the
support of the total research program of the Univer-
sity for maximum benefit to the University and the
greatest service to the State of Florida. DSR seeks to
stimulate the growth of research and to expand bal-
anced research efforts throughout the University.
These activities directly support the graduate pro-
gram.
Policies and procedures of DSR are developed by a
Board of Directors working with the Vice President
for Research within the administrative policies and
procedures of the University. The Graduate Council
serves as adviser on scientific matters and on issues
relating to the graduate program.
All research, grant-in-aid, training, or educational
service agreement proposals must have the approval
of the Vice President for Research before submission.
Subsequent negotiations of sponsored awards are
executed under the Vice President's supervision.
DSR's management of proposal processing and award
administration relieves principal investigators and
departments of many of the detailed administrative
and reporting duties connected with sponsored re-
search. DSR also assists researchers in finding spon-
sors for their projects and disseminates program
information, research policies and regulations, and
proposal deadlines throughout the University.
The law establishing the Division of Sponsored Re-
search enables the use of some recovered indirect
cost funds to support innovative research. The DSR

FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL
EXPERIMENT STATION
The Florida Engineering and Industrial Experiment
Station (EIES) developed from early research activities
of the engineering faculty and was officially estab-
lished in 1941 by the Legislature as an integral part of
the College of Engineering. Its mandate is "to or-
ganize and promote the prosecution of research proj-
ects 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 form an interlocking
relationship, with the EIES serving as the research arm
of the College. In this capacity the EIES fulfills its
function of conducting research on many of Florida's
most significant problems ranging from energy to
water resources, environmental issues to health-re-
lated activities. Of course many of these problems
transcend the State and are also of national concern.
The Station has developed a national and interna-
tional reputation in many areas and the faculty are at
the forefront of their fields. This has a major positive
impact on the College since it makes good teaching
possible, exposes students to many important engi-
neering problems normally not encountered in a col-
lege program, and helps the faculty better instill
students with the qualifications necessary for the suc-
cessful practice of their profession. Moreover, both
undergraduate and graduate students frequently find
employment on research projects.
The Station receives a small but important portion
of its operating funds from the State; this funding
base results in a better than 10 to 1 return from con-
tracts and grants with governmental agencies, indus-
trial organizations, and foundations. EIES has
excellent facilities and faculty in many diverse fields
such as computer-aided engineering, automation sci-
ences and manufacturing engineering, electronic de-
vices, optical communication and related micro-
fabrication techniques, a variety of solar and other
alternative energy technologies, biomaterials and
other new materials, biomedical engineering, com-
puter applications, information processing systems,
and a broad spectrum of activities related to public
works, environmental and coastal engineering.

INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY OF THE
COMMUNICATION PROCESSES
The Institute for Advanced Study of the Communi-
cation Processes (IASCP) provides opportunities for
University faculty and advanced students to carry out
research in the communication processes. The In-
stitute is interdisciplinary, with membership drawn
from the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Engi-
neering, Medicine, Dentistry and Fine Arts. The Uni-
versity of Florida in Gainesville is its headquarters,
but it is structured to serve the entire State University


System. Currently there are active participants from
Florida State University, the University of South Flor-
ida, and Florida International University. The IASCP
faculty also includes members located at other uni-
versities and research laboratories both within the
continental United States and abroad.
The overall objective of IASCP is the maintenance
of a scientific center of excellence focused on human
communicative behavior. The Institute's program in-
cludes (but is not confined to) three broad areas: 1)
the communicator(s), i.e., the physiological/physical/
psychological processes by which individuals gener-
ate and transmit communicative signals (speech), 2)
the respondentss, and how receptive (hearing) and
neural mechanisms function to process signals with-
in a variety of environments, and 3) the message, i.e.,
the codes and signs (language) that constitute the
sum total of these communicative messages. The
IASCP faculty includes students and scientists with a
variety of interests and training. Expertise is repre-
sented by the phonetic sciences, speech pathology
and audiology, psychology, psycholinguistics, lin-
guistics, psychoacoustics, auditory neurophysiology,
electrical engineering, computer sciences, physics,
communication studies, biocommunication, dentis-
try, and medicine.
As stated, IASCP's overall research effort is basically
an interdisciplinary one, but the focus of each inves-
tigator's interests is the advancement of knowledge
about human communication. For information, write
the Director, Institute for Advanced Study of the
Communication Processes, 63 Arts and Sciences

needs. Activities include a diverse range of tro-
pospheric and micrometeorological research as well
as biological, ecological, and technological research
related to the quality of the air we breathe. In par-
ticular, the development of clean combustion tech-
nologies which foster the energy needs of Florida and
the nation while reducing harmful atmospheric emis-
sions has been a major ICAAS focus of the past dec-
ade. These activities are dispersed widely in the
Colleges of Engineering, Liberal Arts and Sciences,

tion.
Interdisciplinary projects of ICAAS encompass (1)
studies of sources, atmospheric transformation and
transport of acidic substances for a Florida acid rain
assessment, initially coordinated through an inter-
disciplinary Acid Deposition Science Workshop,
Causes and Effects, and leading to a monograph on
the workshop proceedings; (2) studies of ultraviolet,
visible, and infrared radiation levels reaching the
ground for photobiological applications; (3) evalua-
tion of the environmental impact for the conversion
of Florida's oil boilers to coal including development
of interpolated analytic wind roses and pollutant con-
centration contours for Florida; (4) interplay of en-
ergy production needs relative to air quality
standards including the technical, scientific, medical,
agricultural, psychological, economic and legal as-
pects of the energy/air quality problems resulting in a
monograph "Coal Burning Issues" on an assessment
of the impact of increased coal use in Florida; and (5)
economic and environmental benefits of co-burning
coal, coal-water slurries, biomass, and waste with
natural gas for efficient energy recovery and reduced
emissions. These energy-atmospheric environment
projects have led to the formation of the University of
Florida-Sunland Training Center-Clean Combustion
Technology Laboratory (CCTL) which evolved from

The permanent faculty of the Center presently in-
cludes Professors R.E. Kalman (Director), G. Basile,
V.M. Popov, and T.E. Bullock. There are numerous
affiliated faculty and members and many visitors of
international stature. An active research seminar is
conducted throughout the year on recent develop-
ments in system theory, as well as certain aspects of
computer science and econometrics.
One of the principal areas of current interest is the
identification of linear relations and systems from
noisy data using the concept of positivity. Applica-
tions of this work include model building in such
areas as econometrics, biometrics, psychometrics,
etc. Another principal area of activity is the control of
linear discrete-time and continuous-time systems
using algebraic methods and techniques from the
theory of functions of several complex variables. A
portion of this work centers on the development of a
control theory for linear systems whose coefficients
belong to a commutative ring or algebra, with ap-
plications to systems with time delays, systems de-
pending on parameters, and spatially distributed
systems. Recent work has also been directed toward
the control of linear systems with time-varying coeffi-
cients and the control of linear systems with param-
eter or modeling uncertainty (e.g., robust stabiliza-
tion).

MINERAL RESOURCES RESEARCH CENTER
To meet the future demand for mineral resources,
which is critically dependent on the availability of low
grade complex ores, both the federal and the state
governments have committed themselves to de-
veloping the necessary technology for processing of

PURC seeks to accomplish these goals by providing
student fellowships and assistantships, by support-
ing faculty research, by holding conferences and
seminars to discuss both major policy issues and cur-
rent faculty research, and by serving as a contact
point between business, government, and the aca-
demic community.
PURC's research is disseminated in working pa-
pers, journals, and books, as well as in professional
meetings and governmental hearings. Major areas of
interest include measurement of the cost of capital;
financing utility construction programs; the restruc-
turing of the telecommunications industry; rate de-
sign for telephone, gas, and electric utilities; and
other timely issues which are important to utility
companies, consumers, and regulators.

search Center, 361 Business, for information.


REAL ESTATE RESEARCH CENTER
The Real Estate Research Center was established in
1973 to facilitate the study of business and economic
problems related to real estate. Faculty members in
the field of real estate serve as the core staff members
of the Center, with research assistance provided by
several graduate students. Faculty members in other
departments and colleges participate in projects re-
quiring multidisciplinary inputs. Graduate students
also conduct their own research for theses and dis-
sertations in the Center.
The Center also sponsors or cosponsors a number




STUDENT SERVICES / 47


of continuing education programs in real estate each
year. Courses and seminars typically are presented in
the areas of mortgage banking, financial institutions,
real estate appraisal, and real estate investment analy-
sis. Most of these courses and seminars are open to
full-time undergraduate and graduate students in real
estate at the University of Florida.
Many types of research projects are conducted in
the Center. They range from economic and social
issues in land use planning to analysis of the man-
agerial process and rates of return in various types of
real estate businesses and properties. The Center has
developed textual materials for organizations such as
the Florida Real Estate Commission and the American
Institute of Real Estate Appraisers.
Contract research projects in the Center have been
sponsored and funded by various agencies of the
Florida state government, city governments, the Flor-
ida Real Estate Commission, and the Society of Real
Estate Appraisers Foundation.

CENTER FOR SENSORY STUDIES
Sensory studies deal with those systems which pro-
vide an organism with information about its envi-
ronment. 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 because
of the unusual convergence of a strong faculty and a
set of unique facilities available within the University
and peculiar to the State of Florida and its regional
location in the United States.
The graduate studies envisioned by the faculty call
for broad training in an established academic disci-
pline, which may be a specialized area within one of
the biological, medical, or physical sciences, and an
introductory survey of the senses, in-depth training
in one or more sense modalities (vision, hearing,
chemical, etc.) and special advanced studies in basic
or applied techniques. The intent 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 de-
veloped. Affiliation with an academic degree granting
program will also provide an additional basis for fu-
ture professional affiliation. Since students will enter
the sensory program with differing backgrounds, the
program of studies will be tailored to the perceived
needs of the student.
Correspondence should be addressed to the Di-
rector,'Center for Sensory Studies, Physics Depart-
ment, 278 Williamson Hall.

URBAN AND REGIONAL RESEARCH CENTER
The Center stimulates and coordinates inter-
disciplinary research on urban and regional affairs
and works closely with faculty and graduate students
in any discipline concerned with local, state, re-
gional, national, or international human settlements.
Since the major thrust of URRC is research, no formal
courses or degree programs are offered. However,
URRC seeks the participation of faculty and graduate


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 Turlington Hall.

CENTER FOR WETLANDS
The Center for Wetlands is an intercollege research
division dedicated to understanding wetlands.and
their role in the partnership of humanity and nature.
The Center encourages interdisciplinary research on
ecology problems, management, reclamation, and
effective use of wetlands. The Center advances
knowledge through special research approaches
such as systems ecology modeling and simulation,
energy analysis and planning, field experiments on
vegetation response to water control, reclamation of
wetlands and surrounding watersheds, and regional
planning.
The Center fosters campus and statewide com-
munication through a central workshop activity,
organized research projects of county and state con-
cern, wetlands publications, conferences and short
courses, research data collections, and proposals for
curricula. Support of faculty and graduate students is
provided by active projects. The Center has projects
with several state and federal agencies (the Environ-
mental Protection Agency, the National Science
Foundation, the Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation, the Florida Institute of Phosphate Re-
search, and others).
'Students with graduate majors in related depart-
ments may arrange degree programs with emphases
on wetlands using Center facilities and activities. For
additional information, contact the Director or Asso-
ciate Director, Center for Wetlands, Phelps Labora-
tory.

Guide for Preparing Theses andDissertationsto assist
the student in the preparation of the manuscript and
offers suggestions and advice on such matters as the
preparation and reproduction of illustrative mate-
rials, the treatment of special problems, the use of
copyrighted material, and how to secure a copyright
for a dissertation. The following procedures apply to
the Graduate School's editorialservices to students.
1. The responsibility for acceptable English in a the-
sis or dissertation, as well as the originality and ac-
ceptable quality of the content, lies with the student
and the supervisory committee.
2. The Graduate School editorial staff act only in an
advisory capacity but will answer questions regarding
correct grammar, sentence structure, and acceptable
forms of presentation.
3. The editorial staff will examine a limited portion
of the final rough draft and make recommendations

degree and the Ph.D. degree with a major in business
administration and an accounting concentration. The
M.Acc. degree program offers specialization in each
of the four areas of auditing/financial accounting,
management accounting, accounting systems, and
taxation. The Ph.D. accounting concentration is de-
signed to prepare students for careers in research
and teaching at major universities or for research-
oriented careers. A joint program leading to the Juris
Doctor and Master of Accounting degrees also is of-
fered by the Fisher School of Accounting and College
of Law. Specific details for the M.Acc., M.Acc./J.D.,
and Ph.D. programs will be supplied by the Fisher
School of Accounting upon request. The degree Mas-
ter of Business Administration with an accounting
concentration is offered by the College of Business
Administration. Requirements for the MBA are in-
cluded in the front section of the Catalog.
The M.Acc. and the Ph.D. accounting programs
require admission standards of at least the following:
For the M.Acc. program, a combined verbal and
quantitative score of 1100 on the Graduate Record
Examination, a combined GRE score of 1200 for the
Ph.D. program; or a score of 500 for the M.Acc. and
550 for the Ph.D. program on the Graduate Manage-
ment Admission Test. Admission to the M.Acc. or
Ph.D. accounting graduate programs cannot be

Information on minimum GPA standards for admis-
sion to the M.Acc. program may be obtained from the
office of the Assistant Director. Foreign students must
submit a TOEFL test score of at least 550 and a satisfac-
tory GMAT or GRE score.
Admission to the graduate courses in accounting
requires that students have, or complete without
graduate credit, approximately the courses required
of an undergraduate accounting major. With this
background the M.Acc. degree can normally be
earned in three semesters.
The M.Acc. degree requires 36 credits of course
work. A minimum of 20 credits must be in graduate
level courses; a minimum of 16 credits must be in
graduate level accounting courses. The remaining
credits are selected from recommended elective
courses that vary by area of specialization.
Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a core
of courses in mathematical methods, statistics, and
economic theory; one or two supporting fields se-
lected by the student; and a major field of account-
ing. Students are expected to acquire teaching
experience as part of the Ph.D. degree program.
Grants-in-aid will be awarded for this teaching. For-
eign students must submit a Test of Spoken English
(TSE) test score of at least 220 along with satisfactory
GMAT/GRE and TOEFL scores in order to obtain a
teaching appointment. Students are expected to en-
roll in ACG 6940 for a minimum of three credits.

The Department of Agricultural and Extension Edu-
cation offers major work for the degrees of Master of
Science (thesis) and Master of Agriculture (nonthesis)
(see Requirements for Master's Degrees).
Two curriculum options for graduate study toward
either degree are offered. The extension option is for
those persons currently employed or preparing to be
employed in the cooperative extension service, in-
cluding home economics, agriculture, 4-H, and other
related areas. The teaching option is for persons who
are teaching vocational agriculture in the public
schools and those who wish to enter the profession
and require basic certification.
A prospective graduate student need not have ma-
jored in agricultural and extension education as an
undergraduate. However, students with an insuffi-
cient background in either agricultural and extension
education or technical agriculture will need to in-
clude some basic courses in these areas in their pro-
gram.
The Department of Home Economics offers gradu-
ate students with home economics related interests
the opportunity for field experience and research
activity in the areas of family and consumer econom-

The Department of Agricultural and Extension Edu-
cation offers major work for the degrees of Master of
Science (thesis) and Master of Agriculture (nonthesis)
(see Requirements for Master's Degrees).
Two curriculum options for graduate study toward
either degree are offered. The extension option is for
those persons currently employed or preparing to be
employed in the cooperative extension service, in-
cluding home economics, agriculture, 4-H, and other
related areas. The teaching option is for persons who
are teaching vocational agriculture in the public
schools and those who wish to enter the profession
and require basic certification.
A prospective graduate student need not have ma-
jored in agricultural and extension education as an
undergraduate. However, students with an insuffi-
cient background in either agricultural and extension
education or technical agriculture will need to in-
clude some basic courses in these areas in their pro-
gram.
The Department of Home Economics offers gradu-
ate students with home economics related interests
the opportunity for field experience and research
activity in the areas of family and consumer econom-
ics, housing, and foods and nutrition.

These members of the facultyof the Florida State University (*) and
Florida Atlantic University (f) are also members of the graduate
faculty of the University of Florida and participate in the doctoral
degree program in the University of Florida Department of An-
thropology.
The Department of Anthropology offers graduate
work leading to the Master of Arts (thesis or non-
thesis option) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.
Graduate training is offered in applied anthropology,
social and cultural anthropology, archeology, an-
thropological linguistics, and physical/biological an-
thropology.
There is a general option and an interdisciplinary
one. The general option allows students to concen-
trate at the M.A. level on the integration of the four
subfields of anthropology and to specialize at the
Ph.D. level. The interdisciplinary alternative allows
students to 1) concentrate on one or two subfields of
anthropology along with one or more areas outside
of anthropology and 2) begin early specialization and
integration of a subfield of anthropology and an out-
side field. More information about these two options
is found in the department publication on graduate
programs and policies that may be obtained by writ-
ing directly to the department.
The Department of Anthropology generally re-
quires a minimum score of 1100 on the Graduate
Record Examination and a 3.2 overall grade point
average based on a 4.0 system.
Candidates for the M.A. are required to take ANT
6038 and 6917. No more than six hours of ANT 6971
will be counted toward the minimum requirements
for the M.A. with thesis. Knowledge of a foreign lan-
guage may be required by the student's supervisory
committee. Other requirements for the program are
listed in this Catalog under the Requirements for
Master's Degrees.
Students enrolled in the M.A. program who wish to
continue their studies for a Ph.D. must apply to the
department for certification. Minimum requirements
will normally include 1) a minimum grade point aver-
age of 3.5 in all graduate anthropology courses and a
minimum of 3.2 in other courses, 2) a grade of pass on
either the Integrative Basic Knowledge Examination
or the comprehensive examination, and 3) a thesis,
report, or paper judged to be of excellent quality by
the student's supervisory committee. In most cases,

candidates for the Ph.D. must achieve competency in
a language other than English. Entering students who
already have earned a master's degree may apply for
direct admission to the doctoral program.
Study for the Ph.D. degree in anthropology at the
University of Florida by qualified master's degree re-
cipients at Florida Atlantic University and Florida

The Department of Architecture offers graduate
work leading to the first professional degree, Master
of Architecture. Students entering the program at the
University of Florida will matriculate in one of the
following tracks:
Baccalaureate in Architecture Base.-For those stu-
dents who have a four-year accredited baccalaureate
degree from an architectural program, two years in
residence are normally required for completion of
the Master of Architecture degree. Applications for
graduate admission, including official transcripts,
GRE scores, and TOEFL scores, if necessary, must be
received in the Office of the Registrar by January 15.
In addition, applicants are required to submit to the
Department of Architecture, 231 ARCH, University of
Florida, the following: a portfolio of their work in
architecture and related fields; a scholarly statement
of intent; and three letters of recommendation from
teachers or employers. This material must be re-
ceived by January 15 for consideration for admission
in the following fall semester.
The graduate Professional Core I is taught only in
the fall semester, is required of all graduate students
in this track, and is prerequisite to the remaining'
course work. After completion of Professional Core I,
the student is expected to pursue studies related to a
special field of interest-architectural design, archi-
tectural structures, environmental technology, or ar-
chitectural preservation. Concentration in this
special field of interest will prepare the student for
architectural practice as well as stimulate an intellec-
tual challenge in the field of study. Additional infor-
mation concerning programs for each of these areas
is available from the department. The student's over-
all college experience, including undergraduate pro-
grams in architecture and the two-year graduate
program, is intended to be a complete unit of profes-
sional education leading toward practice in architec-
ture or related professions.
Related and Nonrelated Degree Base.-Those stu-
dents holding a baccalaureate degree in any related
or nonrelated academic area may apply for graduate
studies leading to the degree Master of Architecture.
Based upon evaluation of an applicant's transcripts, a
specific curriculum is developed for each accepted
candidate in this program. The length of time of this
program depends on the academic background of
the applicant. These applicants, in addition to satisfy-
ing University requirements for admission, are re-


quired to submit to the Department of Architecture,
231 ARCH, University of Florida, the following: a
portfolio of their work in architecture and related
fields if applicable; a scholarly statement of intent
and objectives; and three letters of recommendation
from teachers or employers. Students may enter this
program in any semester. Therefore, applications for
graduate admission, including transcripts, GRE
scores, and TOEFL scores, if necessary, must be re-
ceived by the Office of the Registrar three months in
advance of anticipated start date.
Accredited Five-Year Professional Base.-For those
students holding a baccalaureate degree in architec-
ture from an accredited five-year professional degree
program, the graduate faculty in architecture may
elect to admit them for a one-year degree program. In
these cases, a specialized curriculum which compli-
ments the needs of the applicant is developed. The
minimum registration is 30 credits but may increase
depending on the transcripts and whether the appli-
cant is seeking architectural registration in the State
of Florida.
The department reserves the right to retain student
work for purposes of record, exhibition, or instruc-
tion. Field trips are required of all students; students
should plan to have adequate funds available. It may
be necessary to assess studio fees to defray costs of
base maps and other generally used materials.
The College of Architecture sponsors special cur-
ricula in architecture each summer to enhance the
academic program. These curricula, offered during
summer sessions, are intended to supplement re-
quired course work. Each of the three, Preservation
Institute: Caribbean; Preservation Institute: Nan-
tucket; and VIA: Summer Studies in Italy, accept stu-
dents, not only from the University of Florida, but
from academic circles throughout the United States
and the world.

Department of Astronomy.

The Department of Astronomy offers graduate
work in astronomy and astrophysics leading to the
degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philoso-
phy. Current research fields include radio astronomy,
astrometry, and data adjustment theory; cosmology;
photometry of close binaries and intrinsic variables;
photometry of quasars and galaxies; dynamical as-
tronomy; structure, kinematics, and dynamics of gal-
axies; planetary magnetospheres; lunar occultation
observations; radio and optical instrumentation; and
certain topics of theoretical steller astrophysics. Ad-
ditional theoretical and laboratory research directed
toward conducting and interpreting space experi-
ments occurs in the department's Space Astronomy
Laboratory (Dr. J.L. Weinberg, Director). The depart-
ment is active in Voyager radioastronomical investiga-
tions of the magnestospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, and
Uranus.
Major Department Facilities.-Rosemary Hill Ob-
servatory, about 30 miles from Gainesville, houses a
76-cm reflector (cameras, spectrograph, several
microprocessor-based photometers, spectrum
scanner), a 46-cm reflector (camera, microprocessor-
based photometer), and one terminus of a 46-km-
baseline radio interferometer. The Radio Observa-
tory, 50 miles from campus, is equipped with low
frequency (below 40 MHz) instrumentation consist-
ing of a 7-acre, filled aperature, phase-steered array,
a number of smaller antennas, advanced terminal
equipment including wide-band radio spectro-
graphs, and the other terminus of the 46-km-baseline
interferometer. In Chile, the Maipu Radio Astronom-
ical Observatory is operated in cooperation with the

SAL. Several research programs use national astron-
omy facilities (KPNO, NRAO, NAIC, CTIO) or space-
craft (including the space shuttle), and SAL staff have
access to nuclear accelerators at Florida State Univer-
sity and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. A prototype
automated 8-cm refractor has been installed at the
South Pole for stellar photometry.
For direct admission to the program, a student
should have a degree in astronomy, physics or mathe-
matics from an accredited program. Students with
degrees in related fields, such as engineering, may be
admitted with the understanding that certain founda-
tion courses will have to be taken. If it seems desir-
able, an individual with a strong background in
physics may perform the graduate research work in
astronomy but take the qualifying examination and
degree in physics rather than astronomy. All degree
candidates are required as part of their training to
assist in the department's teaching program. Com-
plete details of the program and research facilities
may be obtained by writing the Chairman, 211 Space

For admission to graduate standing a student
should present credits equivalent to those required
for undergraduate majors in the department, namely
24 credits in botany, a course in genetics with labora-
tory, mathematics through differential calculus, one
year of college physics, and chemistry through
organic. Those admitted without full equivalents of
,an undergraduate major will be required to make up
the deficiencies by passing appropriate courses early
in their graduate programs. A reading knowledge of a
foreign language and credit for basic courses in zool-
ogy and bacteriology are desirable. The program of
graduate study for each student will be determined
by a supervisory committee. No more than nine cred-
its of BOT 6905 may be used to satisfy the credit
requirements for a master's degree. Each student pur-
suing the Ph.D. degree will be required to pass a
written departmental examination on designated ma-
jor areas of botany prior to the oral portion of the
qualifying examination.
There are, in addition to the facilities of the depart-
ment for graduate work, the following special re-
sources that may be utilized in support of graduate
student training and research: (1) the Florida Agri-
cultural Experiment Stations, (2) the Marine Sciences
Center on the Gulf of Mexico for studies in estuarine
and marine habitats, (3) the resources of the Welaka
Conservation Reserve, (4) the Center for Tropical Ag-
riculture, which can support studies in tropical and
subtropical areas, and (5) the Fairchild Tropical
Garden for research in the systematics, morphology
and anatomy, and economic botany of tropical plants.
To provide additional educational opportunities
for our graduate students in the form of botanical
garden research and training internship program, the
Department of Botany has entered into an arrange-
ment with the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens of
Sarasota. Under this arrangement students spend a
semester in Sarasota as part of a regular degree pro-
gram; the academic portions of which are under the
control of faculty members in the Department of Bot-
any. The course of study is specifically designed by
agreement among the student, the student's gradu-
ate adviser, and the Selby Gardens' Director of Re-
search. Students register for the Selby course under
BOT 6905 for nine credit hours. Interns are provided
with housing on the garden grounds and a per diem
to help with expenses. Interested students should
communicate with the Department Chairman or
Graduate Coordinator for further details.

Courses are offered leading to the degrees of Mas-
ter of Science in Building Construction (thesis) and
Master of Building Construction (nonthesis). An indi-
vidual plan of study is prepared for each student to
insure that the student's goals are achieved within the
broad policy guidelines of the school. Specialization
may be in areas such as the construction manager
concept, planning and scheduling, cost control, high
rise construction, materials, techniques, and struc-
tural concepts.
There is no foreign language requirement. All BCN
graduate students are required to take an examina-
tion on their ability to communicate in the English
language. Failure to make a satisfactory score on this
examination will result in the addition of a prere-
quisite course or courses in English to the student's
plan of study. The examination must be taken during
the first registration period that the student is en-
rolled.
Holders of a four-year undergraduate degree in
building construction or its equivalent in related
fields may normally complete the requirement for
the master's degree in one academic year (two se-
mesters) as full-time students. "Equivalent in related
fields" should include studies in construction mate-
rials and methods, structures, and management. Stu-
dents with deficiencies in these related fields may
need longer residence for the master's degree, as
they will be required to take specified basic courses
to provide a foundation for advanced courses.
No more than five credits of BCN 6934 or 6971 may
be used to satisfy the credit requirements for a mas-
ter's degree without written permission of the Direc-
tor. Candidates are required to take BCN 5463, 5625,

'These members of the faculty of Florida Atlantic University are
also members of the graduate faculty of the University of Florida and
participate in the doctoral program in the University of Florida De-
partment of Chemistry.

The department offers the Master of Science and
Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in chemis-
try and specialization in analytical, organic, in-
organic, or physical chemistry. The nonthesis degree
Master of Science in teaching is also offered with a
major in chemistry.
New graduate students should have adequate un-
dergraduate training in inorganic, analytical, organic,
and physical chemistry. Normally this will include as a
minimum a year of general chemistry which may in-
clude qualitative analysis, one semester of quan-
titative analysis, one year of organic chemistry, one
year of physical chemistry, and one semester of ad-
vanced inorganic chemistry. Additional courses in in-
strumental analysis, advanced physical and organic
chemistry are desirable. Deficiencies in any of these
areas may be corrected during the first year of gradu-
ate study. Such deficiencies are determined by a se-
ries of placement tests given prior to registration, and
the results of these tests are used in planning the
student's program.
Doctoral candidates are required to complete a
series of courses specified by the division of the
Chemistry Department in which they choose to spe-
cialize, CHM 6470, and two out-of-major-division




CHEMISTRY / 73


courses or equivalent examinations. Additional
courses may be required by the student's supervisory
committee or major professor. Foreign students
whose native language is not English must achieve a
minimum score of 220 on the Test of Spoken English.
All others must meet the departmental language re-
quirement in German, French, or Russian.
Candidates must serve not less than one year as
teaching assistants. This requirement will be waived
only when, in the opinion of the department, unusual
circumstances justify such action.
A chemical-physics option is offered for students
who will be doing research in areas of physical chem-
istry which require a strong background in physics.
For this option, a student meets the departmental
requirements for concentration in physical chemistry,
except that only one out-of-major division course is
required. In addition, a minimum of 15 credits in 4000
level or higher physics courses or a minimum of 8
such credits in physics and 8 in 4000 level or higher
mathematics courses is required.
Candidates for the master's degree are required to
complete any two core courses. The Master of Sci-
ence degree in chemistry requires a thesis. The non-
thesis degree Master of Science in Teaching is offered
with a major in chemistry and requires a written pa-
per of substantial length (30-50 pages) on an ap-
proved topic pertaining to some phase of chemistry,
under the course CHM 6905.

ics, pattern recognition, business information sys-
tems, operating systems, compilers, performance
measurement, artificial intelligence, architecture,
simulation, distributed computing, and theory of
computation.
Applications for admission must be approved by
both the department and the college in which the
student wishes to enroll. Applicants should have a
strong computer science background.
Students who wish to obtain a degree from a col-
lege other than the one from which they received
their undergraduate degrees and students with inad-
equate backgrounds in mathematics and statistics will
be required to do additional remedial work specified
by the department's Graduate Coordinator and ap-
proved by the new college. The remedial work will
generally include core requirements for the new col-
lege.
All master's students must satisfy a core require-
ment by completing four specified graduate level
courses (12 credits) or their approved equivalents.
Students must maintain an average of at least 3.0 on
the core courses, and no more than one course may
have a grade below B.
Students can select a thesis or nonthesis option for
the master's degree. The thesis option requires a min-
imum of 30 credit hours and the nonthesis option a
minimum of 33 credit hours. The thesis degree re-
cuires an additional 12 credits of course work beyond
t e core (six graduate level credits in CIS and six
credits in some other department in the student's
college), and a written thesis. A minimum of six credit
hours must be taken in CIS 6971. The nonthesis op-
tion requires an additional 15 letter-graded credits of
course work in CIS beyond the core and 6 letter-
graded credits in some other department in the stu-
dent's college. Each nonthesis master's student is re-
quired to pass a written comprehensive examination
administered twice a year by the department.
Ph.D. students are required to take a minimum of
90 credit hours. Of these, at least 42 hours must be

The Department of Computer and Information Sci-
ences offers the Master of Engineering, Engineer, and
Ph.D. degrees through the College of Engineering,
and a Master of Science degree through any one of
three colleges-Business Administration, Engineer-
ing, and Liberal Arts arid Sciences.
Areas of specialization within the program in com-
puter and information sciences include computer
organization, information systems, and software sys-
tems. These specializations permit study in a wide
range of areas including programming languages,
database management, software engineering, graph-
ics, pattern recognition, business information sys-
tems, operating systems, compilers, performance
measurement, artificial intelligence, architecture,
simulation, distributed computing, and theory of
computation.
Applications for admission must be approved by
both the department and the college in which the
student wishes to enroll. Applicants should have a
strong computer science background.
Students who wish to obtain a degree from a col-
lege other than the one from which they received
their undergraduate degrees and students with inad-
equate backgrounds in mathematics and statistics will
be required to do additional remedial work specified
by the department's Graduate Coordinator and ap-
proved by the new college. The remedial work will
generally include core requirements for the new col-
lege.
All master's students must satisfy a core require-
ment by completing four specified graduate level
courses (12 credits) or their approved equivalents.
Students must maintain an average of at least 3.0 on
the core courses, and no more than one course may
have a grade below B.
Students can select a thesis or nonthesis option for
the master's degree. The thesis option requires a min-
imum of 30 credit hours and the nonthesis option a
minimum of 33 credit hours. The thesis degree re-
cuires an additional 12 credits of course work beyond
t e core (six graduate level credits in CIS and six
credits in some other department in the student's
college), and a written thesis. A minimum of six credit
hours must be taken in CIS 6971. The nonthesis op-
tion requires an additional 15 letter-graded credits of
course work in CIS beyond the core and 6 letter-
graded credits in some other department in the stu-
dent's college. Each nonthesis master's student is re-
quired to pass a written comprehensive examination
administered twice a year by the department.
Ph.D. students are required to take a minimum of
90 credit hours. Of these, at least 42 hours must be

graduate level CIS course work and 12 hours must be
in some other department within the College of Engi-
neering. A minimum of 15 hours must be taken in CIS
7980. A maximum of 30 credits may be awarded to-
ward the Ph.D. degree from an appropriate master's
degree. All Ph.D. students are required to pass a
written Ph.D. comprehensive examination, pass an
oral qualifying examination, and write and defend a
dissertation.
All students must form a supervisory committee by
the end of their second semester of enrollment.
