Rules, policies, fees, and courses described in
this Catalog are subject to change without notice.






THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY
The Graduate School consists of the dean, two
associate deans, the Graduate Council, and the
graduate faculty. General policies and standards of
the Graduate School are established by the gradu-
ate faculty. Any policy change must be approved by
the graduate deans and the Graduate Council. The
Graduate School is responsible for the enforcement
of minimum general standards of graduate work in
the University and for the coordination of the grad-
uate programs of the various colleges and divisions
of the University. The responsibility for the detailed
operations of graduate programs is vested in the
individual colleges, schools, divisions, and depart-
ments. In most of the colleges an assistant dean or
other administrator is directly responsible for grad-
uate study in that college.
The Graduate Council assists the dean in being
the agent of the graduate faculty for execution of
policy related to graduate study and associated re-
search. The Council, which is chaired by the gradu-
ate dean, considers petitions and policy changes.
Members of the graduate faculty are appointed by
the dean with the approval of the Graduate Coun-
cil. There are three levels of graduate faculty:
Restricted Graduate Faculty (RGF), who are appointed
to temporary three-year terms to teach graduate-
level courses and direct master's theses; Graduate
Studies Faculty (GSF), who are on permanent
appointments to teach graduate-level courses and
direct master's theses; and Doctoral Research Fac-
ulty (DRF), who are appointed in addition to direct
doctoral dissertations.
No faculty member may perform any of these
functions without having been appointed to the
graduate faculty, though temporary exceptions may
be made in unusual circumstances.
In the beginning the organization of graduate,
study was very informal. Control was in the hands
of a faculty committee which reported directly to
the President. In 1910, however, James N. Anderson,
Head of the Department of Ancient Languages, was
appointed Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences
and Director of Graduate Work, and in 1930 he
became the first Dean of the Graduate School. He
was succeeded upon his retirement in 1938 by T. M.
Simpson, Head of the Department of Mathematics,
who held the position until 1951. C. E Byers, Head
of the Department of Biological Sciences in the
University College, served as Acting Dean from
June 1951 until August 1952 when he was succeeded
by L. E. Grinter, who came from the Illinois Institute
of Technology, where he had been Vice President,
Dean of the Graduate School, and Research Profes-
sor. Upon becoming Acting Vice President in 1969,
Dr. Grinter was named Dean Emeritus of the Gradu-
ate School. He was succeeded by Harold R Hanson,
who came to Florida from the University of Texas,
where he had served as Chairman of the Depart-
ment of Physics. In 1971, Dr. Hanson was appointed
Vice President for Academic Affairs. Alexander G.
Smith of the Department of Physics and Astronomy
and a former assistant dean of the Graduate School
served as Acting Dean until the appointment of
Harry H. Sisler. Dr. Sisler served as Chairman of the
Department of Chemistry, Dean of the College of
Arts and Sciences, and Executive Vice President of


the University of Florida prior to being named Dean
of the Graduate School in March 1973. In Septem-
ber 1979, Dr. Sisler returned to teaching as Distin-
guished Service Professor of Chemistry. E Michael
Wahl, Associate Dean of the Graduate School, As-
sociate Director of Sponsored Research, and Profes-
sor of Geology, served as Acting Dean until the
appointment of Francis G. Stehli in June 1980.
Dr. Stehli came to Florida from Case Western
Reserve University where he had served as Samuel
St. John Professor of Geology, Chairman of the
Department of Geology, and Dean of Science and
Engineering. In September 1982, Dr. Stehli became
Dean of the College of Geosciences at the University
of Oklahoma. Donald R. Price, Associate Dean for
Research 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.
Lockhart served as Associate Dean of the Graduate
School and Professor of Economics. She began a
dual appointment 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 cam-
pus. However, the first graduate degrees-two Mas-
ter 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 pro-
grams leading to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930,
and the first degrees were awarded in 1934, one
with a major in chemistry and the other with a
major in pharmacy. The first Ed.D. was 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 1987-88, the total number of
graduate degrees awarded was 1,657 in more than
100 fields. The proportion of Ph.D. degrees, after
steadily increasing for a number of years, has begun
a more gradual increase. In 1950, 18 Ph.D.s were
awarded. In 1986-87, the total was 303, and in 1987-88,
304 Ph.D.s were awarded.

guished Service Professor of Chemistry. E Michael
Wahl, Associate Dean of the Graduate School, As-
sociate Director of Sponsored Research, and Profes-
sor of Geology, served as Acting Dean until the
appointment of Francis G. Stehli in June 1980.
Dr. Stehli came to Florida from Case Western
Reserve University where he had served as Samuel
St. John Professor of Geology, Chairman of the
Department of Geology, and Dean of Science and
Engineering. In September 1982, Dr. Stehli became
Dean of the College of Geosciences at the University
of Oklahoma. Donald R. Price, Associate Dean for
Research 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.
Lockhart served as Associate Dean of the Graduate
School and Professor of Economics. She began a
dual appointment 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 cam-
pus. However, the first graduate degrees-two Mas-
ter 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 pro-
grams leading to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930,
and the first degrees were awarded in 1934, one
with a major in chemistry and the other with a
major in pharmacy. The first Ed.D. was 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 1987-88, the total number of
graduate degrees awarded was 1,657 in more than
100 fields. The proportion of Ph.D. degrees, after
steadily increasing for a number of years, has begun
a more gradual increase. In 1950, 18 Ph.D.s were
awarded. In 1986-87, the total was 303, and in 1987-88,
304 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 admis-
sion applications may be earlier than those stated in
the current University Calendar; prospective stu-
dents should check with the appropriate depart-
ment. Applications which meet minimum standards
are referred to the graduate selection committees
of the various colleges and departments for approv-
al or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given de-
partment, the prospective student must satisfy the
requirements of the department as well as those of
the Graduate School. In some departments, avail-
able 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





6 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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. Inquiries about specific requirements should
be addressed to the department in question. Some
colleges and departments require a reading knowl-
edge of at least one foreign language. Exceptions to
the above requirements are made only when these
and other criteria including letters of recommenda-
tion are reviewed by the department, recommended
by the department, and approved by the Dean of
the Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is de-
pendent upon the presentation of a baccalaureate
degree from an accredited college or university. No
application will be considered unless the complete
official transcript of all the applicant's undergradu-
ate 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 regis-
trar of the institution in which the work is done.
Official supplementary transcripts are required as
soon as they are available for any work completed
after application for admission has been made. In
general, no student who is a graduate of a nonac-
credited 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 pres-
ent both an upper-division grade point average and
Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test Score
with their applications and meet other criteria re-
quired by the University, including excellent letters
of recommendation from colleagues, satisfactory
performance in a specified number of graduate
courses taken 'as postbaccalaureate students, and/or
practical experience in the discipline for a specified
period of time.
The University encourages applications from quali-
fied applicants of both sexes from all cultural, ra-
cial, religious, and ethnic groups. The University
does not discriminate on the basis of handicap or
age in admission 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 depart-
ments 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.-Students
applying for admission to the Graduate School for
study in the College of Business Administration may
substitute satisfactory scores on the Graduate Man-
agement Admission Test (GMAT) for the Graduate


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 addition-
al information.

Graduate Study in Law.-Students applying to the
graduate program leading to the degree Master of
Laws in Taxation must hold the Juris Doctor or
equivalent degree and must submit satisfactory scores
on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).

FOREIGN STUDENTS
All foreign students seeking admission to the
Graduate 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 En-
glish or who have studied at a United States college
or university for one year or more need not submit
TOEFL scores but must submit satisfactory scores
on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Exami-
nation before their applications for admission can
be considered.
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
adequate 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 assignments. Students who
score below 220 on one of these tests must take
ENS 5501-Academic Spoken English I before they
may accept teaching assistantships. Students who
score between 220 and 250 must take ENS 5502-
Academic Spoken English II; this requirement may
be met while holding a teaching assignment or
prior to accepting the appointment.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing
Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for registration forms
and other information concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT,
and GRE. Students may register for the locally
administered SPEAK test with the secretary in 63
Dauer Hall.





GENERAL REGULATIONS / 7


HANDICAPPED STUDENTS
The University of Florida does not discriminate
on the basis of handicap in the recruitment and
admission of students, in the recruitment and em-
ployment of faculty and staff, or in the operation of
any of its programs and activities, as specified by
federal laws and regulations. The acting designated
coordinator for compliance with Section 504 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, is Dr. J.
Michael Rollo, Associate Dean for Student Services,
129 Tigert Hall, 392-1261.
The Office of Student Services provides assis-
tance for disabled students. Services are varied de-
pending on individual needs and include, but are
not limited to, special campus orientation, registra-
tion assistance, help in securing auxiliary learning
aids, and assistance in general University activities.
Handicapped students are encouraged to contact.
this office.

CONDITIONAL ADMISSION
Students who are not eligible for direct admission
may be granted conditional admission to the Grad-
uate School. Students may be granted conditional
admission 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 previ-
ous 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 condi-
tions have been satisfied, the department must no-
tify 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 admis-
sion 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 re-
cords from nonaccredited and unevaluated colleges;
(2) to provide a means for students not seeking a
graduate degree to enroll in courses-included in
this category would be students who change their
professional goals or wish to expand their academic
backgrounds; and (3) to accommodate students,
who do intend to enter a graduate program at some
future date, but need a substantial number of pre-
requisite courses.
Postbaccalaureate students may enroll in graduate
courses but the work taken will not normally be
transferred to the graduate record if the student is


subsequently admitted to the Graduate School. By
petition in clearly justified cases and in confor-
mance 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 teacher
certification must provide the college with a clear
statement of certification goals as a part of the
requirements for admission. Interested students
should write to 134 Norman Hall or call 392-0721 for
further information.

FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE
STUDENTS
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, the faculty of the R K. Yonge Laboratory
School, and University Libraries faculty.
Under certain restrictions established by the Grad-
uate Council, persons holding nontenure- or non-
permanent-status-accruing titles may pursue nontitesis
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
University.

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
supervisory 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 pro-
gram, 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.






8 / GENERAL INFORMATION


GENERAL REGULATIONS

It is the responsibility of the graduate student to
become informed and to observe all regulations and
procedures required by the program the student is
pursuing. The student must be familiar with those
sections of the Graduate Catalog that outline gener-
al regulations and requirements, specific degree
program requirements, and the offerings and re-
quirements of the major department. Ignorance of a
rule does not constitute a basis for waiving that rule.
Any exceptions to the policies stated in the Graduate
'Catalog must be approved by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but be-
fore the first registration, the student should con-
sult the college and/or the graduate coordinator in
the major department concerning courses and de-
gree requirements, deficiencies if any, and special
regulations of the department. The dean of the
college in which the degree program is located or a
representative must approve all registrations.


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
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
major; 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 accu-
racy 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 equiva-
lent 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 stu-
dent conduct code is printed in the Undergraduate
Catalog.


STUDY LOADS
The University of Florida operates on a semester
system consisting of two 16-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 Graduate
Student Handbook as well as the Graduate Coordi-
nator's Manual.
Full-time students, not on appointment, must reg-
ister for a minimum of 12 credits. Part-time status
may be approved by the graduate coordinator for
students who are not pursuing a degree on a full-
time basis. Such exceptions must be clearly justi-
fied and the approved registration must be com-
mensurate with the use of University facilities and
faculty time.
The minimum study load for students not on
assistantship is three credits during Fall and Spring
Semesters 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
concentrated 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
under Undergraduate Registration in Graduate
Courses. Courses numbered 7000 and above are
designed 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
Florida.
A complete list of approved graduate courses
appears in the section of this Catalog entitled Fields
of Instruction. Departments reserve the right to
decide which of these graduate courses will be
offered in a given semester and the departments
should be consulted 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.
Graduate students must conform to the Regis-
trar's deadline for drops. However, under certain
circumstances, substitutions of courses, if approved
by the Graduate School, are permitted after the -
Registrar's deadline.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by cor-
respondence may be used for graduate credit.
Professional Work.-No courses from a profes-
sional curriculum (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
University of Florida for graduate credit.





GENERAL REGULATIONS / 9


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 gradu-
ate 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 used in 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
graduate 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
situations where the expected unit of work may be
developed over a period of time greater than a
single term.
Incomplete Grades.-Grades of I (incomplete) re-
ceived during the preceding semester should be
removed as soon as possible. Grades of I carry no
quality points and lower the overall grade-point
average.
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
college concerned, an undergraduate student at the
University of Florida may enroll in graduate-level
courses (5000 and 6000 level) if the student has
senior standing and an upper-division grade-point
average of at least 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 graduate degree at the University of Flori-
da provided credit for the course has not been used
for an undergraduate degree and provided the trans-
fer 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 de-
grees in two programs concurrently must have the
written approval of the chairperson of each depart-


ment involved and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Any student interested in pursuing concurrent de-
grees should discuss the proposed study with the
Graduate School's Student Records staff prior to
applying for the programs. If the -request is ap-
proved, the student must be officially admitted to
both programs through regular procedures. If the
student is approved to pursue two master's pro-
grams, no more than six hours of course work from
one degree program may be applied toward meet-
ing the requirements for the second master's de-
gree. 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 edu-
cation and training of veterans under all public laws
in effect; i.e., Chapter 31, Title 38, U.S. Code (Dis-
abled Veterans); Chapter 34, Title 38, U.S. Code
(Cold-War G.I. Bill); and Chapter 35, Title 38, U.S.
Code (Children of Deceased or Disabled Veterans).
Students who may be eligible for educational
benefits under any Veterans Administration pro-
gram are urged to contact the Veterans Affairs Office,
124 Tigert Hall, as soon as they are accepted for
admission.
Students expecting to receive benefits under one
of these programs must file an application with the
Office of the Registrar. No certification can be made
until the application is on file. Benefits are deter-
mined by the Veterans Administration, and the Uni-
versity certifies according to these rules and regula-
tions.
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 reg-
istration in the University or in a graduate program
should scholastic performance or progress toward
completion of the planned program become unsat-
isfactory 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. Dead-
line dates for such changes as specified in the
current University Calendar must be met.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE EXAMINATION
A foreign language examination is not required
for all degree programs and the student should





10 / GENERAL INFORMATION


contact the graduate coordinator in the appropriate
department for specific information regarding any
requirement of a foreign language.
If a department requires that a student meet the
foreign language requirement by satisfactory perfor-
mance 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
responsible for the administration of the written
and oral qualifying examinations as well as the final
oral examination for the defense of the thesis, project,
or dissertation. All members of the supervisory
committee must sign the appropriate forms, includ-
ing the signature pages, in order for the student to
satisfy the requirements of the examination.
Qualifying and final examinations for graduate
students are to be held on the University of Florida
campus. Exceptions to this policy are made only for
certain graduate students whose examinations are
administered at the Agricultural Research and
Educational Centers or on the campuses of the
universities in the State University System that are
approved for cooperative graduate degree programs.
These exceptions 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 University
Calendar and by the college, school, or depart-
ment. Regular issues of Deadline Dates are avail-
able 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
Graduate School Editorial Office and should re-
quest a records 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 ex-
aminations or graduating during the summer terms
is two hours of appropriate credit as outlined above.
Students must also apply for the degree at the
beginning 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, observ-
ing time limits, limitations on transfer credit, on
nonresident work, and on level of course work.
2. The candidate must have a grade average of B
or higher in the major and in all work attempted in
the graduate program. All grades of I, H, and X

exccept that 12 credits of graduate courses in a
department constitute a major. Credit toward the
degree for courses taken through the Division of
Continuing Education is limited to 24 credits. The
student's supervisory committee must consist of at
least two members of the graduate faculty. A com-
prehensive written qualifying examination, given
prior to the midpoint of the term of graduation,
and a final oral examination are required. Both
examinations must be given on campus with all
participants present.

MASTER OF AGRICULTURAL
MANAGEMENT AND RESOURCE
DEVELOPMENT (M.A.M.R.D.)
The M.A.M.R.D. degree program provides an op-
portunity for graduate study for students who plan
to enter management careers in business firms or
government agencies; it is not recommended for
those who plan careers in research and university
teaching. Areas of concentration include farm man-
agement, agribusiness management, and natural re-
sources and environmental management.
The general requirements are the same as those

leading to a Juris Doctor and a Master of Arts in
Urban and Regional Planning is offered under the
joint auspices of the College of Law and the Col-
lege of Architecture, Department of Urban and
Regional Planning. The program provides students
interested in the legal problems of urban and re-
gional planning with an opportunity to blend law
studies with relevant course work in the planning
curriculum. The students receive both degrees at
the end of a four-year course of study whereas
separate programs would require five years. Stu-
dents must take the GRE and the LSAT prior to
admission, must be admitted to the two programs
simultaneously, and must complete the first year of
law school course work before comingling law and
planning courses. A thesis is required upon com-
pletion of the course work.

practically so, and the independent research report
is complete, the supervisory committee is required
to examine the student orally or in writing on (1)
the independent research report, (2) the major sub-
jects, (3) the minor or minors, and (4) matters of a
general nature pertaining to the field of study. The
examination must be given on campus with all
participants present.


MASTER OF BUSINESS
ADMINISTRATION
The requirements for the Master of Business
Administration degree are designed to give stu-
dents (1) the conceptual knowledge for understand-
ing the functions and behaviors common to all orga-
nizations, and (2) the analytical, problem-solving,
and decision-making skills essential for effective
management. The emphasis is upon developing the
student's capacities and skills for business decision
making.
The curriculum is structured so that students may
extend their knowledge in a specialized field by
selecting an approved concentration. Included in
these concentrations are accounting, computer and
information sciences, decision and information sci-
ences, economics, finance, health and hospital ad-
ministration, management, marketing, and real es-
tate. Several areas of specialization having different

MASTER OF EDUCATION
The degree of Master of Education is a profes-
sional degree designed to meet the need for profes-
sional personnel to serve a variety of functions
required in established and emerging educational
activities of modern society. A thesis is not required.
A minimum of 36 credits is required in all mas-
ter's programs with at least half of these credits in
courses at the 5000 level or above. Twenty-one
credits in education, with 15 at the graduate level,
and 5 credits in courses outside education are in-
cluded. There are two exceptions: (1) only 12 cred-
its in education, all at the graduate level, are re-
quired for students having at least 21 credits in a
baccalaureate program for teacher preparation, and
(2) 15 credits in courses outside education are re-
quired for these same students if their master's
programs are in art, English, foreign language, math-
ematics, science, and social studies education, or
vocational, technical, and adult education.
At least 16 credits, must be earned while the
student is enrolled as a graduate student in courses
offered on the Gainesville campus of the University


of Florida, including registration for at least 6 cred-
its in a single semester.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING
A student seeking a master's degree in the field
of engineering may become a candidate for the
Master of Engineering degree with or without the-
sis, provided such a candidate has a bachelor's
degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited cur-
'riculum or has taken sufficient articulation course
work to meet the minimum requirements specified
by ABET. Students who do not meet these require-
ments may become candidates for the Master of
Science degree, provided they meet departmental
requirements for admission. The general intent in
making this distinction is to encourage those who
are professionally oriented to seek the Master of
Engineering degree, and those who are more scien-
tifically oriented and those who have science-based
backgrounds to seek the Master of Science degree.
Also, the Master of Civil Engineering degree has
been approved as a variant of the Master of Engi-
neering degree. The M.C.E. is oriented specifically
to the design and professional practice in civil engi-
neering. The degree requirements include a mini-
mum number of hours of design and professional
practice instruction at the graduate level, six months'
full-time civil engineering related experience or its
equivalent obtained after the student has achieved
junior status, and completion of the Engineering
Intern Examination. The thesis or report required
for all master's degrees must be design-related.
Further details on this degree program may be
obtained from the Chairman, Department of Civil
Engineering.
Work Required.-The minimum course work re-
quired for the master's degree with thesis is 30
credits which may include up to 6 credits of the
research course numbered 6971 in all departments.
At least 12 credits, excluding 6971, must be in the
student's major field of study. A minimum of 32
credits of course work is required, with at least 16
credits in the student's major field for both of the
above degrees without thesis. At least 50% of the
required 32 credits must be in graduate level courses,
excluding those graded as S/U. Courses in the ma-
jor 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 addition, a multidisciplin-
ary minor in departments other than the major may
be authorized by the supervisory committee or
program adviser. Courses numbered 3000 and above

program 'notes, etc.
3. Project must conform to departmental formats.
To insure future accessibility and for record keeping
purposes, a copy of the results must be deposited
in a designated library.


Admission.-Applicants requesting admission to
any of the programs should have an earned bacca-
laureate degree in the same or a closely related
field.
Students must fulfill the Graduate School admis-
sion requirements. In cases Where the undergradu-
ate degree is not in the area chosen for graduate
study, the student must demonstrate a level of

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 Depart-
ments of Counselor Education, Educational Leader-
ship, Foundations of Education, Instruction and Cur-
riculum, and Special Education.
To study for this degree, the student must apply
and be admitted to the Graduate School of the
University of Florida. All work for the degree 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
beyond 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 appro-
priate master's degree from another accredited in-
stitution must complete a minimum of 36 credits of
post-master's study to satisfy the following require-

campus by the University of Florida may be trans-
ferred to the program. Six, credits may be trans-
ferred from another institution of the State University
System or from any institution offering a doctoral
degree; however, credit transferred from another
institution reduces proportionately the credit trans-
ferred from University of Florida off-campus courses.
Students who enter the program with a bache-
lor's degree only must, during the 72-credit pro-
gram, satisfy these requirements in addition to the
requirements of the Master of Education degree or
its equivalent.

Instruction 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 insti-
tution, 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 grad-
uate 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
department, 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.

may be used in the cognate work or as a minor.
In lieu of a minor or minors, the candidate may






PH.D. DEGREE / 21


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 included, 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
successful completion of the qualifying examina-
tions and approval of a dissertation topic. Recom-
mendation to the Graduate School for admission to
candidacy 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 com-
mittee.
Qualifying Examination.-The applicant is recom-
mended for the qualifying examination by the su-
pervisory committee after completion of sufficient
course work.
The examination, administered on campus by the
student's major department, consists of (1) a gener-
al section, (2) a field of specialization section, (3)
examination in the minor or minors, where in-
volved, 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 mem-
bers 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
semester of additional preparation is considered
essential before re-examination.
Research Preparation Requirement.-EDF 7486 (Meth-
ods of Educational Research) or its equivalent, for
which a basic course in statistics is a prerequisite,
and one other approved course, are minimum re-
quirements in all programs. Additional requirements
vary with the department and with the student'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 heading Requirements for the Ph.D. These state-
ments 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 pro-


grams are more flexible and varied than those lead-
ing to other graduate degrees. The Graduate Coun-
cil 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 student's entire supervisory com-
mittee, 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 re-
sponsibility 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 de-
gree 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
conducted by the minor department or through the
oral qualifying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level
need not be restricted to the courses of one depart-
ment, provided that the minor has a clearly stated
objective and that the combination of courses
representing the minor shall be approved by the
Graduate School. This procedure is not required for
a departmental minor.

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE
Supervisory committees are nominated by the
department chairperson, approved by the dean of
the college concerned, and appointed by the Dean
of the Graduate School. The committee should be
appointed as soon as possible after the student has
begun doctoral work and in general no later than
the end of the 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 governing






22 / GENERAL INFORMATION


the degree sought. It should be noted, however, that
this does not absolve the student from the responsibili-
ty of informing himself concerning these regulations.
(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
examination. 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,
progress, and expected results and to make sugges-
tions 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
research and a contribution to knowledge. No few-
er than five faculty members shall be present with
the candidate for this examination, but only the
members of the official supervisory committee may
sign the dissertation. The dissertation must be ap-
proved unanimously by the official supervisory
committee.
Membership.-The supervisory committee for a
candidate for the doctoral degree shall consist of
no fewer than four members selected from the
graduate faculty. At least two members will be from
the department recommending the degree, and at
least one member will be drawn from a different
educational discipline. The chairperson and at least
one additional member of the committee will be
members of the Doctoral Research Faculty of the
University of Florida.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee
will include at least 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 discre-
tion 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 dur-
ing a planned absence of the chairperson; in this
case both the chairperson and the cochairperson
must be appointed to the Doctoral Research Faculty.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT ,
Any foreign language requirement, or a substitute
therefore, for the Ph.D. is established by the major


department with approval of the college. The stu-
dent should check with the graduate coordinator of
the appropriate department for specific informa-
tion. The foreign language departments offer spe-
cial classes for graduate students who are begin-
ning 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 com-
mittee, is required of all candidates.

PERIOD OF CONCENTRATED STUDY
Candidates for the doctoral degree must satisfy
the minimum requirements for a period of concen-
trated study, beyond the master's degree, by regis-
tering for (1) 30 semester hours in one calendar
year, or (2) 36 semester hours in no more than four
semesters within 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 concentrated study.
Candidates in the College of Agriculture may do
their research at certain branch stations of the Uni-
versity 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 Philoso-
phy, 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, in-
cluding the supervisory committee, must be pres-
ent with the student at the oral portion. The super-
visory 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 addition-
al preparation is considered essential before re-
examination.
Time Lapse.-Between the qualifying examinations
and the date of the degree there must be a mini-
mum of two semesters. The semester in which the
qualifying examination is passed is counted, provid-
ed that the examination occurs before the midpoint
of the term.

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






EXPENSES / 23


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
opinion of the supervisory committee concerning
overall fitness for candidacy, (3) an approved disser-
tation topic, and (4) a qualifying examination as
described above. Application for admission to candi-
dacy should be made as soon as the qualifying exami-
nation has been passed and a dissertation topic has
been approved by the student's supervisory commit-
tee. A student may register 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
independent 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
approve exceptions to this rule on an individual
basis for students majoring in German or Romance
languages and literatures.
Since all doctoral dissertations will be published
by microfilm, it is necessary that the work be of
publishable quality and that it be in a form suitable
for publication.
The original copy of the dissertation must be
presented to the Dean of the Graduate School on
or before the date specified in the University
Calendar. It must contain an abstract and be ac-
companied by four unpaged separate copies of the
abstract, a letter of transmittal from the supervisory
chairperson, and all doctoral forms. After correc-
tions have been made, and no later than the speci-
fied formal submission date, the fully signed copy
of the dissertation, together with the signed Final
Examination Report, should be returned to the Grad-
uate School. The original copy of the dissertation is
sent by the Graduate School to the Library for
microfilming and hardbinding. A second copy,
reproduced on required thesis paper, should be
given to the office of the college dean for subse-
quent delivery to the Library for hardbinding. The
supervisory chairperson and the candidate will each
need a copy and, if required, another should also
be provided for the departmental library.
Publication of Dissertation.-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
agreement 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 Cer-
tificate, candidates must give permanent addresses
through which they can always be reached.


FINAL EXAMINATION
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 announcement of the scheduled examination
must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School.
At least five faculty members including the supervi-
sory committee, must be present with the candi-
date at the oral portion of this examination. At the
time of the defense all committee members should
sign the signature pages and all committee and
attending faculty members should sign the Final
Examination Report. These may be retained by the
supervisory chairman until acceptable completion
of corrections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and
adherence to all Graduate School regulations outlined
above complete the requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation.-All work for the doctorate must
be completed within five calendar years after the
qualifying examination, or this examination must be
repeated.

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

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS-
FLORIDA OR NON-FLORIDA
(Section 6C-7.005 Florida Student Definitions.
(1) For the purpose of assessing registration and
tuition fees, a student shall be classified as a resi-
dent or a nonresident. A "resident for tuition pur-
poses" is a person who qualifies for the in-state
tuition rate; a "nonresident for tuition purposes" is
a person who does not qualify for the in-state
tuition rate.
(a) To be classified as a "resident for tuition
purposes," a person, or, if a dependent child, the







24 / GENERAL INFORMATION


child's parent or parents, shall have established
legal residence in Florida and shall have maintained
legal residence in Florida for at least twelve (12)
months immediately prior to his or her qualifica-
tion. A dependent child is a person who may be
claimed by his or her parent as a dependent
under the Federal Income Tax Code. Every appli-
cant for admission to a university shall be re-
quired to make a statement as to the length of,
residence in the state and, shall also establish his
or her presence, or, if a dependent child, the.
presence of his or her parent or parents, in the
state for the purpose of maintaining a bona fide
domicile in accordance with the provisions of
Section 240.1201(2)(b), Florida Statutes.
(b) With respect to a dependent child, the legal
residence of such individual's parent or parents
shall be prima facie evidence of the individual's
legal residence in accordance with the provisions
of Section 240.1201(4), Florida Statutes. Prima facie
evidence may be reinforced or rebutted by evi-
dence of residency, age, and the general circum-
stances of the individual in accordance with the
provisions of Rule 6C-7.005(2).
(c) In making domiciliary determinations related
to the classification of persons as residents or
nonresidents for tuition purposes, the domicile
of a married person, irrespective of sex, shall be
determined in accordance with the provisions of
Section 240.1201(5), Florida Statutes.
(d) Any nonresident person, irrespective of sex,
who marries a legal resident of this state or marries
a person who later becomes a legal resident, may,
upon becoming a legal resident of this state,
accede to the benefit of the spouse's immediately
precedent duration as a legal resident for pur-
poses of satisfying the 12-month durational re-
quirement.
(e) No person shall lose his or her resident
status for tuition purposes solely by reason of
serving, or, if a dependent child, by reason of the
parent or parents serving, in the Armed Forces
outside this state.
(f) A person who has been. properly classified
as a resident for tuition purposes, but who, while
enrolled in an institution of higher education in
this state, loses resident tuition status because
the person, or, if a dependent child, the parent or
parents, establish domicile or legal residence else-
where, shall continue to enjoy the in-state tuition
rate for a statutory grace period. This grace period
shall be measured in accordance with the provi-
sions of Section 240.1201(8), Florida Statutes.
(g) The legal residence of a dependent child
whose parents are divorced, separated, or other-
wise living apart shall be deemed to be Florida if
either parent is a legal resident of Florida, regard-
less of which parent is entitled to claim, and does
in fact claim, the minor as a dependent pursuant
to federal individual income tax provisions.
(h) Any person who ceases to be enrolled at or
graduates from an institution of higher education
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
tuition purposes in accordance with the provi-
sions of Section 240.1201(10), Florida Statutes.
(i) A member of the Armed Forces on active
duty stationed in Florida, and the spouse and
dependents of such member, shall be classified
as residents for tuition purposes.
(j) Full-time instructional and administrative per-
sonnel employed by state public schools, com-
munity colleges, and institutions of higher educa-
tion, 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 resi-
dent 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 appropri-
ate university officials. In determining residence,
the university shall require evidence such as a voter
registration, driver's license, automobile registra-
tion, location of bank account, rent receipts or any
other relevant materials as evidence that the appli-
cant has maintained 12 months' residence immedi-
ately prior to qualification. To determine if the
student is a dependent child, the university shall
require evidence such as copies of the aforemen-
tioned documents. In addition, the university may
require a notarized copy of the parent's IRS return.
If a nonresident wishes to qualify for resident tui-
tion status in accordance with Section (1)(d) above,
the applicant must present evidence of the spouse's
legal residence with certified copies of the afore-
mentioned documents. "Resident student" classifi-
cation shall also be construed to include students
to whom an Immigration Parolee card or a Form 1-94
(Parole Edition) was issued at least one year prior to
the first day of classes for which resident student
status is sought, or who have had their resident
alien status approved by the United States Immigration
and Naturalization Service, or who hold an Immi-
gration 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 Ser-
vice who are considered as Resident Aliens, or
other legal aliens, provided such students meet the
residency requirements stated above and comply
with subsection (4) below. The burden of establishing
facts which justify classification of a student as a
resident and domiciliary entitled to "resident for
tuition purposes" registration rates is on the appli-
cant 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
intention 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






EXPENSES / 25


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.
(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, un-
der 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 pur-
poses" under the terms and conditions prescribed
for residents and domiciliaries of the state of Florida.
All claims to "resident for tuition purposes" classifi-
cation 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 enroll-
ment and qualification as a resident, rather than for
the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary resi-
dence or abode incident to enrollment in an institu-
tion of higher education, may apply for and be
granted classification as a "resident for tuition pur-
poses"; provided, however, that those students who
are nonresident aliens or who are in the United
States on a nonimmigration visa will not be enti-
tled to reclassification. An application for reclassifi-
cation as a "resident for tuition purposes" shall
comply with provisions of subsection (4) above. An
applicant who has been classified as a "nonresident
for tuition purposes" at time of original enrollment
shall furnish evidence as stated in 6C-7.005(1) to the
satisfaction of the registering authority that the ap-
plicant has maintained residency in the state for the
twelve months immediately prior to qualification
required to establish residence for tuition purposes.
In the absence of such evidence, the applicant shall
not be reclassified as a "resident for tuition pur-
poses." It is recommended 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 in-
tends 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 sanc-
tions as may be imposed by the president of the
university.

, A student must be registered during the terms of
the qualifying examination and the final examina-
tion, and during the term in which the degree is
awarded.

FEE LIABILITY
A student is liable for all fees associated with all
courses in which he/she is registered at the end of
the drop/add period. The fee payment deadline is
2:30 p.m. of the first business day after the end of
the drop/add period.

ASSESSMENT OF FEES
Pursuant to Section 6C-7.02, Florida Administra-
tive Code: Fees are based on the total number of
credit hours and the course level for which the
student is enrolled. The fee structure for graduate-
level courses for the academic year 1988-89 is as
follows:
Non-Florida

precludes their being on campus for an entire term,
including the periods of regular registration, dead
week, and final examinations.
A request for approval of such a waiver should be
originated by the dean or department chairman in
charge of the program upon request from the stu-
dent enrolled in the program. The department must
complete a "Request for Waiver of Student Health,
Athletic and Activity Fees" and return to Student
Financial Services; students requesting the waiver
of health, athletic, and activity fees must also com-
plete the bottom portion of the form and deliver it
with their tuition payment to Student Financial Ser-
vices, 100 Hub, on or before the fee payment dead-
line shown in the front of this Catalog for the
semesters requeste- Requests submitted after that
date will not be honored nor will refunds be issued.

Florida.

Deadlines

Students are reminded that deadlines are strictly
enforced. The University does not have the authority
to waive late fees unless it has been determined
that the University is primarily responsible for the
delinquency or that extraordinary circumstances war-
rant such waiver.

Cancellation and Reinstatement

The University shall cancel the registration of any
student who has not paid any portion of his/her fee
liability by the published deadlines.
Reinstatement shall require the approval of the
University and payment of all delinquent liabilities
including the late registration or late payment fees
as applicable by cash, cashier's check, or money
order. A student whose registration has been can-
celled must request a reinstatement letter at Stu-
dent Financial Services, the Hub. To expedite
reinstatement the student must deliver the letter to
Registrar Records, 34 Tigert Hall, Station 2.
In the event a student has not paid the entire fee
liability by the published deadlines, the University
shall temporarily suspend further academic prog-

records have been flagged, the student must re-
quest the records be cleared at Customer Service,
100 Hub, after the account is settled.

benefits under Chapter 32, 34, or 35 of Title 38 USC,
and whose benefits are delayed.
3. Students for whom formal arrangements have
been made with the University for payment by an
acceptable third-party donor.
Fee deferments must be established with Student
Financial Services, the Hub, prior to the fee pay-
ment deadline. Failure to establish the deferment
will subject the student to a late payment fee and/or
cancellation of registration.

Waiver of Fees

The University may waive fees as follows:
1. Participants in sponsored institutes and pro-
grams where substantially all direct costs are paid
by the sponsoring agent may waive all fees.
2. State employees who have been employed on
a permanent, full-time basis for at least six months
may be permitted to waive fees up to a maximum of
six credit hours per term on a space available basis
only.
3. Intern supervisors for institutions within the
State University System may be given one nontrans-
ferable certificate (fee waiver) for each full academic
term during which the person serves as an intern
supervisor. All fees are waived.
The Non-Florida Student Financial Aid fee may not
be waived for students receiving an out-of-state fee
waiver.

UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES
The University of Florida Libraries form the larg-
est information resource system in the state of
Florida, and materials are housed in several loca-
tions which support broad disciplinary areas.
Generally, most of the agricultural, science, and
technology holdings will be found in the Marston
Science Library and most humanities and social
science materials, including business and journal-
ism, will be found in Libraries East and West. How-
ever, several separate collections have been orga-
nized which support particular subject or area studies
programs at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels. Holdings for visual arts, architecture, and
building construction materials will be found in the
Architecture and Fine Arts Library (201 Fine Arts
Building A), most education materials in the Educa-
tion 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 (JHMHSC 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 Science Center and the College of Law.
The Libraries hold over 2,700,000 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, interna-
tional, state, and local documents. Most major U.S.
daily newspapers, as well as the large collection of
Florida newspapers, are available in Library East and
West.
The Map Library (first level, Marston Science Li-
brary) is an extensive repository of maps, atlases,
aerial photographs, and remote sensing imagery
with particular collection strengths for the south-
eastern 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
collection of its kind in the Southeast; the Baldwin
Library (second floor, Library East), among the world's
greatest collections of literature for children; and
the Parkman D. Howe Collection of American Liter-
ature (Rare Books and Manuscripts Collection, 531
Library West). The R K. Yonge Library of Florida
History is the state's preeminent Floridiana collec-
tion (404 Library West). Its holdings of Spanish
colonial documents concerning 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 University Archives (450 Li-
brary East) maintain the corporate memory of the
University's academic and administrative programs.


More than 90 percent of the cataloged collection
can be located through the Libraries' online catalog
which is called LUIS (Library Users Information Ser-
vice). Terminals are available in every library loca-
tion, and remote access to the online catalog is
available through every terminal capable of linking
to the University'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 are full
member-owners in the Research Libraries Group
(RLG), making the RLIN system available in all li-
brary locations.
Current information regarding the hours at Li-
brary East and West may be obtained by telephon-
ing 392-0341 and for the Marston Science Library by
calling 335-8500. Information about circulation policy
and library borrower cards may be obtained at any
circulation desk.

MAJOR ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTATION CENTER
(MAIC)
The Major Analytical Instrumentation Center (MAIC)
was established in 1982 to help make available com-
plex modern analytical instrumentation and to pro-
mote its efficient usage on the campus and in the
state. This is accomplished by coordinating campus-
wide usage, helping to provide resources for main-
tenance, upgrading existing instruments and devel-
oping new techniques, planning purchases of ma-
jor new instruments, training and supervising users,
and providing professional scientists to supervise
the solution of individual problems. Center person-
nel 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 facili-
ties that are available to some users.
The instruments involved include several electron
microscopes (TEM, SEM, AEM) with full analytical
and imaging capabilities, instruments directed to-
ward 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
microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, vac-
uum technology, surface science, and optical mi-
croscopy. These are open both for graduate credit
and to those outside the university community.
(The Chemistry Department, IFAS, and the Engi-
neering and Industrial Experiment Station also reg-
ularly offer several short courses of a complementa-
ry nature.) Some individually supervised training
directed by Center personnel is available to gradu-
ate students.
The overall aim of the MAIC is thus to make
possible the solution of any scientific or technologi-
cal problem that requires state-of-the-art analytical
instrumentation and to make these capabilities ac-
cessible to all university and state personnel. Coop-
eration with state industries is also encouraged where
this is legal and appropriate.






36 / GENERAL INFORMATION


The administration and professional staff of the
MAIC are located in 217 Materials Science and
Engineering Building where further information may
be obtained upon request.

MONOGRAPH SERIES
The Graduate School sponsors two monograph
series devoted to the publication of research pri-
marily by present and former members of the schol-
arly community of the University. The Social Sci-
ences Monographs are published each year with
subjects-drawn from anthropology, economics, his-
tory, political science, sociology, education, geogra-
phy, law, and psychology. The Humanities Monographs
are published each year with subjects drawn from
art, language and literature, music, philosophy, and
religion.

FLORIDA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
The Florida Museum of Natural History was created
by an act of the Legislature in 1917 as a depart-
ment of the University of Florida. Through its affilia-
tion with the University, it carried dual responsibility
as the Florida Museum 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 Sundays. 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
carried 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 expan-
sion of the research collections of animals; Anthro-
pology, whose staff members are concerned with
the study of historic and prehistoric people and
their cultures; Interpretation, staffed by specialists
in the interpretation of knowledge through muse-
um exhibit techniques and education programs.
Members of the scientific and educational staff of
the Museum hold dual appointments in appropriate
teaching departments. Through these appointments,
they participate in both undergraduate and gradu-
ate teaching programs.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is
part of the Department of Natural Sciences of the
Florida Museum of Natural History. The combined
Sarasota and Gainesville holdings in Lepidoptera
rank the Allyn Museum of Entomology as the larg-
est in the western hemisphere and the premier
Lepidoptera research center in the world. The Allyn
Museum publishes the Bulletin of the Allyn Muse-
um of Entomology and sponsors the Karl Jordan
Medal. The Allyn Collection serves as a major source
for taxonomic and biogeographic research by a num-
ber of Museum and Department of Zoology faculty
and students, as well as a great many visiting ento-
mologists 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 ham-
mocks. Jointly administered by the School of Forest
Resources and Conservation and the Florida Museum
of Natural History, this area supports several re-
search activities centering on the ecology of threat-
ened species and the restoration of the native longleaf
pine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and disserta-
tion 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 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 spec-
trometer laboratory for the study and identification
of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of
curators who encourage the scientific study of the
Museum's holdings. Materials are constantly being
added to the collections both through gifts from
friends and as a result of research activities of the
Museum staff. The archaeological and ethnological
collections are noteworthy, particularly in the abo-
riginal and Spanish colonial material remains from
the southeastern United States and the Caribbean.
There are extensive study collections of birds, mam-
mals, mollusks, reptiles, amphibians, fish, inverte-
brate and vertebrate fossils, and a bioacoustic ar-
chive consisting of original recordings of animal
sounds. Opportunities are provided for students,
staff, and visiting scientists to use the collections.
Research and field work are presently sponsored in
the archaeological, paleontological, and zoological
fields. Students interested in these specialties should
make application to the appropriate teaching de-
partment. Graduate assistantships are available in
the Museum in areas emphasized in its research
programs.

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 beginning of the century, the University had
begun to focus its attention on the Latin American
nations. Advanced degrees were given in Latin Amer-
ican studies as early as 1927, and by the midcentury
a School of Inter-American Studies had been formed.
During the last three decades, the University of
Florida's commitment to international studies has
expanded rapidly. This expansion has resulted in
the creation of a Center for Latin American Studies,
a Center for African Studies, a Center for Tropical
Agriculture, a Center for International Student and
Faculty Exchanges, a program in international rela-
tions, and an English Language Institute for speak-
ers of other languages. Programs in Asian Studies,
Soviet and East European Studies, and West Europe-
an Studies have been added to the undergraduate
curriculum. The University of Florida has participat-
ed in programs of assistance and development in
many major areas of the world: Africa, South America,
Middle America, and Southeast Asia. There has also
been a corresponding increase in the number of
faculty members involved in teaching and in re-
search 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
Linton E. Grinter Hall. The modern four-story build-
ing contains faculty offices, study cubicles, and
seminar rooms, as well as the offices of the Gradu-
ate School, the Division of Sponsored Research, the
Center for African Studies, the Center for Interna-
tional Student and Faculty Exchanges, Program in
Linguistics, and the Center for Latin American Studies.
The expansion of efforts in these directions repre-
sents a conviction on the part of the University that
today's students must be aware, in more than a
superficial way, of developments and trends outside
our national boundaries if they are to live in a world
of peace and harmony. International education is


essential for the citizenry and leaders of the twenty-
first century-the students of today.
As an indication of the University's continuing
commitment to international studies and its impor-
tance 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 International Studies and Programs. In this ca-
pacity, 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 academic activities, projects, and
enterprises.
The Center for International Student and Faculty
Exchanges administers student summer and full-year
study abroad programs as well as assists in the
coordination of international student and faculty
exchange programs. Its personnel counsel students
and faculty interested in study or research overseas,
and also provide help in seeking funds for the
support of international education and research.
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 empha-
sizes 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 adminis-
tration of TOEFL is given near the end of fall, spring
and summer terms. Further information is available
from the Director, English Language Institute, 313
Norman Hall.
The Center for African Studies, one of nine National
Resource Centers on Africa funded, in part, un-
der Title VI of the Higher Education Act, directs and
coordinates interdisciplinary instruction, research,
and outreach related to Africa. In cooperation with
participating departments throughout the University,
the Center offers a Certificate in African Studies
at both the master's and doctoral levels. The curric-
ulum provides a broad foundation for students pre-
paring for teaching or other professional careers in
which a knowledge of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships.-Students
admitted to the Graduate School in pursuit of de-
grees offered by participating departments are eligi-
ble to compete for graduate assistantships and Title
VI Foreign Language and Area Studies fellowships.
Extracurricular Activities.-The Center sponsors
an annual conference on an African topic, a weekly
colloquium series-BARAZA-with invited speak-
ers, and a biweekly film series. The Carter Lectures
on Africa are held throughout the academic year.
The Center also directs an extensive out-reach pro-
gram addressed to public schools, community col-
leges, and universities nationwide.
Library Resources.-The Center for African Stud-
ies provides direct support for African library acqui-

sitions to meet the instructional and research needs
of its faculty and students. The Africana Collection
numbers over 50,000 volumes. The Map Library
contains 360,000 maps and 165,000 serial photo-
graphs and satellite images and is among the top
five academic African map libraries in the U.S.
African Art.-The Center regularly sponsors ex-
hibits in the Grinter Galleries. The University Gal-
lery holds an extensive collection of African sculp-
ture and textiles. The Rosenbloom Collection, 37
pieces of African sculpture, is housed in the Florida
Museum of Natural History. The Department of Art
holds approximately 5,000 African art slides.
Graduate Degree Programs.-The Center for Afri-
can Studies, in cooperation with participating de-
partments offers a Certificate in African Studies in
conjunction with the master's and doctoral degrees.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Stud-
ies with a master's degree are (a) at least 18 credits
of course work in a departmental major, 15 of which
should relate to Africa; (b) 9 credits of course work
related to Africa and distributed in at least two
other departments; and (c) a thesis on an African

of a language appropriate to the area of specialization.
Inquiries about the various programs and activi-
ties of the Center should be addressed to the
Director, Center for African Studies, 470 Grinter
Hall.
International Relations, a field of specialization
leading to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, is offered
through the Department of Political Science. In
addition to the M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in
political science which may include a field in inter-
national relations, the University offers an M.A. and
Ph.D. with a major in political science-international
relations. The political science-international rela-
tions program is designed to provide professional
education to those whose primary interest is a
career in foreign relations, whether in the public or
private sector. Requirements for the M.A. are an
interdisciplinary core of 12 credits, and 27 credits in
three discipline-based tracks. Two of the three tracks
must be in political science; the third may be cho-
sen from a wide range of disciplines, including
economics, journalism, agriculture, statistics, com-
puter sciences, or area studies. For the Ph.D., the
student must complete the requirements for the

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 un-
derstanding of Latin America's cultures and socie-
ties. Students concentrate in one department, which
may be Anthropology, Economics, Food and Re-
source Economics, Geography, History, Political Sci-
ence, Romance Languages and Literatures (Spanish
or Portuguese), or Sociology. This option is espe-
cially 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 a thematic field focusing on
contemporary Latin American problems. Students may
concentrate in Brazilian studies, Caribbean studies,
international communications, museum studies, pop-
ulation studies, tropical agriculture, and tropical con-
servation and development. 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 lan-
guage courses in two other departments, including
one semester of LAS 6938; (2) a reading, writing,
and speaking knowledge of one Latin American
language (Spanish, Portuguese, Aymara, or Haitian
Creole); and (3) a thesis on an interdisciplinary
Latin American topic.
Although the M.A. in Latin American studies is a
terminal degree, many past recipients have entered
the Ph.D. programs in related disciplines from which
they pursue university teaching careers. Other grad-
uates are employed in the foreign service, educational
and research institutions, international organizations,
government agencies, nonprofit corporations, 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.
Graduate Certificates in Latin American Studies.
-Graduate students may earn a Certificate in Latin
American Studies along with a degree in agricul-
ture, architecture, business administration, educa-
tion, fine arts, journalism and communications, and
liberal arts and sciences. The requirements for the-
sis degree candidates are (1) 20 credits of Latin
American course work in the major department; (2)
6 credits of Latin American course work in another
department,, including one semester of LAS 6938;
(3) a reading knowledge of a Latin American lan-
guage; and (4) a thesis on a Latin American topic.
Certificate requirements for nonthesis degree can-
didates are (1) a Latin American focus within the
major department; (2) 12 credits of Latin American
courses in two other departments, including one
semester of LAS 6938; and (3) a reading knowledge
of a Latin American language.

ceive individual counseling to insure that each re-
ceives appropriate course work, language prepara-
tion, and (if desired) experience in a foreign country.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credits of
courses. The "typical" certificate program will con-
sist 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 backgrounds who have career interests in
tropical agriculture are encouraged to consider the
CTA. The CTA Steering Committee will counsel
individual students into appropriate biological, agri-
cultural, social, and management courses.
Students in the CTA program are required to
demonstrate proficiency in a second language. A
score on the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) Lan-
guage Examination of 2.0, or a comparable score on
a similar examination, is a prerequisite to receiving
the certificate. While no specific second language is
required, Spanish, French, or Portugese is strongly
suggested.
Experience in a foreign country is not a requisite
for the CTA. It is, however, strongly encouraged. A
proposal, filed at least one semester in advance of
foreign work, is required for credit under the CTA
program.

DIVISION OF SPONSORED RESEARCH
The Division of Sponsored Research (DSR) has
two general functions: (1) the promotion and ad-
ministration of the sponsored research program and
(2) the support of the total research program of the
University 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 balanced research efforts throughout the
University. These activities directly support the gradu-
ate program.
Policies and procedures of DSR are developed by
a Board of Directors working with the Vice Presi-
dent 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 approv-
al of the Vice President for Research before submis-
sion. Subsequent negotiations of sponsored awards
are executed under the Vice President's supervi-
sion. DSR's management of proposal processing
and award administration relieves principal investi-
gators and departments of many of the detailed
administrative and reporting duties connected with
sponsored research. DSR also assists researchers in
finding sponsors for their projects and disseminates
program information, research policies and regula-
tions, and proposal deadlines throughout the Uni-
versity.
The law establishing the Division of Sponsored
Research enables the use of some recovered indi-

rect cost funds to support innovative research. The
DSR Board of Directors has the responsibility for
the award of these Internal Support Program funds
to eligible faculty. For information, write the Vice
President for Research, Division of Sponsored Re-
search, 223 Grinter Hall.

FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL
EXPERIMENT STATION
The Florida Engineering and Industrial Experiment
Station (EIES) developed from early research activi-
ties of the engineering faculty and was officially
established in 1941 by the Legislature as an integral
part of the College of Engineering. Its purpose is to
organize and promote research projects of engi-
neering and related sciences, with special reference
to problems that are important to the development
of Florida's industries.
The faculty are working on several important na-
tional and societal problems including automation
technologies and manufacturing sciences; the de-
velopment of new materials including biomaterials;
communication technologies; biomedical engineer-
ing; computers, information processing systems,
and software engineering; microelectronics, opto-
electronics, and lightwave technologies; conven-
tional and alternative energy technologies; and a
broad spectrum of research related to the "public
sector," i.e., agricultural, civil, coastaL, and environ-
mental engineering. Many of the programs empha-
size research in areas which will help our national
competitive posture in the international market-
place through the improvement of industrial pro-
ductivity and/or through the development of new
materials, devices, or processes that would give the
United States a technological edge.

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
Institute is interdisciplinary, with membership drawn
from the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry, and Fine Arts.
The University of Florida in Gainesville is its head-
quarters, but it is structured to serve the entire
State University System. Currently there are active
participants from Florida State University, the Uni-
versity of South Florida, and Florida International
University. The IASCP faculty also includes mem-
bers located at other universities and research labo-
ratories both within the continental United States
and abroad.
The overall objective of IASCP is the maintenance
of a scientific center of excellence focused on hu-
man communicative behavior. The Institute's pro-
gram includes (but is not confined to) three broad
areas: 1) the communicatorss, i.e., the physiological/
physical/psychological processes by which individu-
als generate and transmit communicative signals
(speech), 2) the respondentss, and how receptive
(hearing) and neural mechanisms function to pro-


cess signals within a variety of environments, and 3)
the message, i.e., the codes and signs (language)
that constitute the sum total of these communica-
tive messages. The IASCP faculty includes students
and scientists with a variety of interests and train-
ing. Expertise is represented by the phonetic sci-
ences, speech pathology and audiology, psycholo-
gy, psycholinguistics, linguistics, psychoacoustics,
auditory neurophysiology, electrical engineering, com-
puter sciences, physics, communication studies,
biocommunication, dentistry, and medicine.
As stated, IASCP's overall research effort is basi-
cally an interdisciplinary one, but the focus of each
investigator's interests is the advancement of knowl-
edge about human communication. For informa-
tion, write the Director, Institute for Advanced Study
of the Communication Processes, 63 Dauer Hall.


INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH CENTERS

ACCOUNTING RESEARCH CENTER
Established in 1976, the ARC is an integral part of
the Fisher School of Accounting and of the College
of Business Administration. It serves to develop and
promote a scholarly environment for research in
accounting with a special interest in interdisciplin-
ary research. ARC holds frequent research semi-
nars, organizes a biennial national research sympo-
sium on accounting and auditing standards, and
publishes the Journal of Accounting Literature. For
information, contact Director, Accounting Research
Center, 255 Business Building.

CENTER FOR AERONOMY AND OTHER
ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES
The Center (ICAAS) is a community of scholars
drawn from many disciplines represented at the
University of Florida. Each scholar has an estab-
lished professional knowledge and research capa-
bility in the atmospheric sciences or in physical,
biological, or societal disciplines that relate closely
to our atmospheric environment. As an interdisci-
plinary center, ICAAS promotes pure and applied
research in the atmospheric sciences and provides
machinery for translating research into forms rele-
vant to societal needs. Activities include a diverse
range of tropospheric and micrometeorological re-
search as well as biological, ecological, and techno-
logical research related to the quality of the air. In
particular, the development of clean combustion
technologies which foster the energy needs of Flor-
ida and the nation while reducing harmful atmo-
spheric emissions has been a major ICAAS focus of
the past decade. These activities are dispersed widely
in the Colleges of Engineering, Liberal Arts and
Sciences, Agriculture, Medicine, Law, and Business
Administration.
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





44 / GENERAL INFORMATION-


the workshop proceedings; (2) studies of ultravio-
let, visible, and infrared radiation levels reaching
the ground for photobiological applications; (3) eval-
uation of the environmental impact for the conver-
sion of Florida's oil boilers to coal including devel-
opment of interpolated analytic wind roses and
pollutant concentration contours for Florida; (4)
interplay of energy production needs relative to air
quality standards including the technical, scientific,
medical, agricultural, psychological, economic, and
legal aspects 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, bio-
mass, and waste with natural gas for efficient ener-
gy recovery and reduced emissions. These energy-
atmospheric environment projects have led to the
formation of the University of Florida-Sunland Train-
ing Center-Clean Combustion Technology Labora-
tory (CCTL) which evolved from joint programs of
ICAAS, the Department of Mechanical Engineering,

CENTER FOR SENSORY STUDIES
Sensory studies deal with those systems which
provide an organism with information about its
environment. Traditionally, these topics range from
vision and hearing to biological clocks and homing
activity. Sensory studies at the University of Florida
provide a special opportunity to the talented stu-
dent 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
discipline, 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 stud-
ies 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 stud-
ies will be developed. Affiliation with an academic
degree granting program will also provide an addi-
tional basis for future professional affiliation. Since
students will enter the sensory program with differing
backgrounds, the program of studies will be tai-
lored 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.

Scholarly Writing and Academic Spoken English.
Scholarly Writing is useful to all students who would
like to master the forms of writing they need in
their course work, including the technical paper.
Students identified as likely to need help with Eng-
lish writing are required to take a writing test upon
arrival at the University. The results determine whether
they must enroll in ENS 4449. A second course,
ENS 4450, is designed for those students about to
begin writing their theses or dissertations. It in-
cludes report writing, resumes, business letters,
grant proposals, and thesis writing. The Academic
Spoken English program offers three classes which
address the oral skills needed for daily communica-
tion in a classroom situation. ENS 5501 (Academic
Spoken English I) is a basic, intensive course for


graduate students scoring below 220 on the SPEAK
test. ENS 5502 (Academic Spoken English II) is re-
quired for students who score between 220 and 250
on the SPEAK test and have a teaching appoint-
ment. The course focuses on language and on cul-
tural and pedagogical problems which international
teaching assistants encounter in their classrooms.
ENS 5503 (Academic Spoken English Tutorial) is de-
signed for students who have completed ENS 5501
or who scored above 220 on the SPEAK test. Inter-
national graduate students are matched with Ameri-
can undergraduates seeking tutoring; the tutoring
sessions are videotaped and then serve as the basis
for instruction in communication and teaching skills.

SPEECH AND HEARING CLINIC
The University of. Florida Speech-Language and
Hearing Clinic located on the fourth floor of the
Dauer Building offers therapeutic and diagnostic
services to the community. These services are avail-
able to any University student without charge. The
Clinic offers assistance at any time during the year
and therapy sessions are adjusted to individual sched-
ules. Students are encouraged to visit the Clinic
office, room 435, and use this service.

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE
The Student Health Service provides a spectrum
of medical services which includes primary medical
care, health education, specialty services, and men-
tal health consultation and counseling.
The Service consists of an out-patient clinic staffed
by physicians, physician assistants, nurse practition-
ers, registered nurses, psychiatrists, and psycholo-
gists. Health education staff provide in-house coun-
seling on a variety of health topics. SHS also provides
a pharmacy, a clinical laboratory, and radiology ser-
vices. All of these services are in the Infirmary
which is centrally located on campus.
The Health Fee is part of the tuition fee paid by
all students. The Health Fee covers ordinary out-
patient visits, and fees-for-servlces are assessed for
pharmacy, laboratory, and x-ray services as well as
special treatments and consultations with medical
specialists. The supplemental student government
sponsored insurance plan is highly recommended
to help defray these expenses.
A personal health history questionnaire complet-
ed by the student is required before registration at
the University of Florida as well as documentation
of immunity to measles and rubella.

UNIVERSITY COUNSELING CENTER
The University Counseling Center offers a variety
of counseling and student development services to
students and their spouses. The Center is staffed by
psychologists to aid in the growth and development
of each student and to assist students in getting the
most out of their college experience. Services offered
at the Center include the following:
Counseling.-Individual, couple, and group coun-
seling is available to help students with personal,

career, and academic concerns. Appointments to
see a counselor may be made by calling the Center
at 392- 1575 or in person at 311 Little Hall. Students
initially have an interview in which the student and
the counselor make decisions about the type of
help needed. Students requiring immediate help
are seen on a non-appointment emergency basis.
Counseling interviews are confidential.
Consulting.-Center psychologists are available for
consulting with students, staff, professionals, and
faculty. These consultations focus on working with
individual students, special programs, organizational
problems, ways of improving student environments,
and other issues that may have important psycho-
logical dimensions.
Career Development.-In addition to career coun-
seling, the Center offers vocational interest testing,
career workshops, and a career library. The Center
also provides referral information to students seek-
ing specific career information.
Group and Workshop Program.-The Center offers
a wide variety of groups and workshops. A number


of them, such as the women's support group and
the black women's enrichment group, are designed
for special populations. Others such as the math
confidence groups, assertiveness workshops, and
counseling groups are formed to help participants
deal with common problems and learn specific skills.
A list of available groups and workshops is published
at the beginning of each term.
Teaching/Training.-The Center provides a variety
of practicum and internship training experience for
students in counseling psychology, counselor edu-
cation, and rehabilitation counseling. Center psy-
chologists also teach undergraduate and graduate
courses in some of these departments.
CounseLine.-A self-help tape program designed
to provide information on how to cope with the
problems of daily living is sponsored by the Center.
Students may call 392-1683 and ask for any of the 34
tapes that are available. A list of tapes is published
periodically in the student newspaper and is also
available at the Center.

These members of the faculty of the Florida State University (C)
and Florida Atlantic University M) are also members of the gradu-
-ate faculty of the University of Florida and participate in the
doctoral degree program in the University of Florida Department
of Anthropology.

The Department of Anthropology offers graduate
work leading to the Master of Arts (thesis or nonthesis
option) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Gradu-
ate training is offered in applied anthropology, so-
cial and cultural anthropology, archeology, anthro-
pological linguistics, and physical/ biological anthro-
pology.
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 qf 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 out-






ANTHROPOLOGY / 65


side of anthropology and 2) begin early specializa-
tion and integration of a subfield of anthropology
and an outside field. More information about these
two options is found in the department publication
on graduate programs and policies that may be
obtained by writing directly to the department.
The Department of Anthropology generally 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
language may be required by the student's supervi-
sory committee. Other requirements for the pro-
gram 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 require-
ments will normally include 1) a minimum grade
point average of 3.5 in all graduate anthropology
courses and a minimum of 3.2 in other courses, 2) a
grade of pass on either the Integrative Basic Knowl-
edge Examination or the comprehensive examina-
tion, 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
recipients at Florida Atlantic University and Florida
State University is facilitated by a cooperative ar-
rangement in which appropriate faculty members of
these universities are members of the graduate fac-
ulty of the University of Florida.

The College of Architecture offers a program lead-
ing to the Doctor of Philosophy degree in architec-
ture. Areas of specialization within this program


include architecture, building construction, and ur-
ban and regional planning.
The Department of Architecture offers graduate
work leading to the first professional degree, Mas-
ter 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
students who have a four-year accredited baccalau-
reate degree from an architectural program, two
years in residence are normally required for com-
pletion of the Master of Architecture degree.
Applications for graduate admission, including offi-
cial transcripts, GRE scores, and TOEFL scores, if
necessary, must be received in the Office of the
Registrar by March 15. In addition, applicants are
required to submit to the Department of Architec-
ture, 231 ARCH, University of Florida, the follow-
ing: 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 received by March
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 stu-
dents in this track, and is prerequisite to the remaining
course work. During graduate studies, each student
has the opportunity to focus a significant amount of
course work in one of several areas of emphasis.
The student's overall college experience, including
undergraduate programs in architecture and the
two-year graduate program, is intended to be a
complete unit of professional education leading
toward practice in architecture 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 Architec-
ture. The program normally consists of four semes-
ters of professional prerequisite course work prior
to entering the 52-credit-hour curriculum in a spe-
cific area of emphasis. A specific curriculum is
developed for each student, offering flexibility for
individual career goals while providing a compre-
hensive architecture education. The Master of Ar-
chitecture (M.Arch.) degree, the first professional
degree, is awarded upon satisfactory completion of
all of the program requirements. This degree pre-
pares the student for eventual registration as an
architect. Applicants, in addition to satisfying Uni-
versity requirements for admission, 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 if appli-
cable; a scholarly statement of intent and objec-
tives; and three letters of recommendation from
teachers or employers. Students may enter this pro-
gram in any semester. Therefore, applications for
graduate admission, including transcripts, GRE scores,
and TOEFL scores, if necessary, must be received 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 archi-
tecture from an accredited five-year professional
degree program, the graduate faculty in architec-
ture may elect to admit them for a one-year degree
program. In these cases, a specialized curriculum
which compliments the needs of the applicant is
developed. The minimum registration is 30 credits

but may increase depending on the transcripts and
whether the applicant is seeking architectural regis-
tration in the State of Florida.
The Department reserves the right to retain stu-
dent work for purposes of record, exhibition, or
instruction. Field trips are required of all students;
students should plan to have adequate funds avail-
able. It may be necessary to assess studio fees to
defray costs of base maps and other generally used
materials.
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
students, not only from the University of Florida,
but from academic circles throughout the United
States and the world.

*This member of the faculty of the University of South Florida is
also a member of the graduate faculty of the University of Florida
and participates in the doctoral program in the University of
Florida 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 Philos-
ophy. Current research fields include radio astrono-
my, astrometry, and data adjustment theory; cos-
mology; photometry of close binaries and intrinsic
variables; photometry of quasars and galaxies;
dynamical astronomy; structure, kinematics, and
dynamics of galaxies; planetary magnetospheres;
lunar occultation observations; radio and optical
instrumentation; and certain topics of theoretical
stellar astrophysics. Additional theoretical and labo-
ratory research directed toward conducting and
interpreting space experiments occurs in the De-
partment's Space Astronomy Laboratory (Dr. J.L.
Weinberg, Director). The Department is active in
Voyager radioastronomical investigations 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, microproces-
sor-based photometer), and one terminus of a
46-km-baseline radio interferometer. The Radio Ob-
servatory, 50 miles from campus, is equipped with
low frequency (below 40 MHz) instrumentation
consisting of a 7-acre, filled aperature, phase-steered
array, a number of smaller antennas, advanced ter-
minal equipment including wide-band radio spec-
trographs, and the other terminus of the 46-km-
baseline interferometer. In Chile, the Maipu Radio
Astronomical Observatory is operated in coopera-
tion with the University of Chile. Other facilities on
campus include numerous mini- and microcomputers,
audio- and videotape processing equipment, iris pho-


tometer, microdensitometer, blink comparator and
measuring engines. The Space Astronomy Laboratory
(SAL) operates a night-sky observatory on Mt.
Haleakala, Hawaii, and the Schuerman Laboratory,
north of Gainesville. At the Schuerman Laboratory
ground-based and space instrumentation are built,
tested, and calibrated. There is also a microwave
analog scattering experiment, a laser-particle levita-
tion facility for measuring scattering and dynamics
of solid particles and a nuclear astrophysics facility
along with a microprocessor integration unit for
building space-borne gamma-ray detectors. Com-
puters for research include an IBM 3090-400 on
campus and a VAX 11/750 at SAL. Several research
programs use national astronomy facilities (KPNO,
NRAO, NAIC, CTIO) or spacecraft (including the
space shuttle), and SAL staff have access to nuclear
accelerators at Florida State University 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 math-
ematics from an accredited program. Students with
degrees in related fields, such as engineering, may
be admitted with the understanding that certain
foundation courses will have to be taken. If it seems
desirable, 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
Sciences Building.

The Department of Botany offers graduate work
leading.to the degrees of Master of Science, Master
of Agriculture, Master of Science in Teaching, and
Doctor of Philosophy.
Specific areas of specialization in botany include
anatomy/morphology with emphasis on tropical ferns,
aquatic and woody plants, and orchids; bryology;
development of seed plants, protoplast, cell and
tissue culture; ecology and environmental studies;
cellular and molecular genetics; mycology with em-
phasis on morphology, systematics, and develop-
ment; algology with emphasis on algae of brine
ponds; physiology and biochemistry with emphasis
6n ion uptake, photosynthesis and photorespiration,
sugar metabolism and transport, growth and devel-
opment of selected fungi; systematics with empha-
sis on monographic and floristic studies; tropical
botany and ecology.
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 labo-
ratory, 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 knowl-
edge of a foreign language and credit for basic
courses in zoology and bacteriology are desirable.
The program of graduate study for each student will
be determined by a supervisory committee. No
more than nine credits of BOT 6905 may be used to
satisfy the credit requirements for a master's de-
gree. Each student pursuing the Ph.D. degree will
be required to pass a written departmental exami-
nation on designated major areas of botany prior to
the oral portion of the qualifying examination.
There are, in addition to the facilities of the
Department for graduate work, the following spe-
cial resources that .may be utilized in support of
graduate student training and research: (1) the Flor-
ida Agricultural 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 Agriculture, 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 ar-
rangement with the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

J. Catanese; R. E. Cox; R. E. Crosland; B. G. Eppes;
D. A. Halperin; H. E Holland; J. M. Trimmer. Associate
Professor: W. R Chang.
In addition to the Doctor of Philosophy degree
administered at the College of Architecture level
emphasizing construction management, courses are
offered leading to the degrees of Master of Science
in Building Construction (thesis) and Master of Build-
ing Construction (nonthesis). An individual 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 structural
concepts.
There is no foreign language requirement. All
BCN graduate students are required to take an-
examination 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
prerequisite 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 enrolled.
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
semesters) as full-time students. "Equivalent in
related fields" should include studies in construc-
tion materials and methods, structures, and man-
agement. Students 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


master's degree without written permission of the
Director. Candidates are required to take BCN 5463,
5625, and 5715. Foreign students, at the discretion

processes; and (3) interdisciplinary chemical engi-
neering-energy conversion and fuel cells, polymer
science, microelectronics, process economics, biofluid
mechanics, and bioengineering.
Beyond the Graduate School requirements, ad-
mission to graduate work in chemical engineering
depends upon the qualifications of the student,
whose record and recommendations are carefully


and individually studied. During registration week
each graduate student registering for the first time
is counseled to develop an initial study program.
The results of a brief examination covering the field
of chemical engineering are also utilized by the
graduate committee to guide the student. As a
consequence, a program may include some under-
graduate courses, if needed, to prepare for gradu-
ate course work.
The program of all students will involve research
experience through the courses ECH 6905, 6971, or
7980. All new graduate students are expected to
become proficient in computer programming dur-
ing their first semester on campus.

*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
Department of Chemistry.

The Department offers the Master of Science and
Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in chem-
istry and specialization in analytical, organic, inor-
ganic, 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
include qualitative analysis, one semester of quanti-
tative analysis, one year of organic chemistry, one
year of physical chemistry, and one semester of
advanced inorganic chemistry. Additional courses in
instrumental analysis, advanced physical and organ-
ic chemistry are desirable. Deficiencies in any of
these areas may be corrected during the first year of
graduate study. Such deficiencies are determined
by a series of placement tests given prior to regis-
tration, 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






78 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION


Chemistry Department in which they choose to
specialize, CHM 6470, and two but-of-major-division
courses or equivalent examinations. Additional
courses may be required by the student's supervi-
sory committee or major professor. Foreign stu-
dents whose native language is not English must
achieve a minimum score of 220 on the Test of
Spoken English. All others must meet the depart-
mental language requirement 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, unu-
sual circumstances justify such action.
A chemical-physics option is offered for students
who will be doing research, in areas of physical
chemistry which require a strong background in
physics. For this option, a student meets the de-
partmental requirements for concentration in physi-
cal 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
Science degree in chemistry requires a thesis. The
nonthesis degree Master of Science in Teaching is
offered with a major in chemistry and requires a
written paper of substantial length (30-50 pages) on
an approved topic pertaining to some phase of
chemistry, under the course CHM 6905.
