THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY

The Graduate School consists of the dean, two associ-
ate deans, the Graduate Council, and the graduate fac-
ulty. General policies and standards of the Graduate
School are established by the graduate faculty. Any policy
change must be approved by the graduate deans and the
GraduateCouncil. The Graduate School is responsible for
the enforcement of minimum general standards of gradu-
ate work in the University and for the coordination of the
graduate programs of the various colleges and divisions of
the University. The responsibility for the detailed opera-
tions of graduate programs is vested in the individual
colleges, schools, divisions, and departments. In most of
the colleges an assistant dean or other administrator is
directly responsible for graduate study in that college.
The Graduate Council assists the dean in being the
agent of the graduate faculty for execution of policy
related to graduate study and associated research. The
Council, which is chaired by the graduate dean, consid-
ers petitions and policy changes. Members of the gradu-
ate faculty are appointed by the dean with the approval of
the Graduate Council. There are three levels of graduate
faculty: Restricted Graduate Faculty (RGF), who are
appointed to temporary three-year terms to teach gradu-
ate-level courses and direct master's theses; Graduate
Studies Faculty (GSF), who are on permanent appoint-
ments to teach graduate-level courses and direct master's
theses; and Doctoral Research Faculty (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 Depart-
ment 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. F.
Byers, Head of the Department of Biological Sciences in
the University College, served as Acting Dean from June
1951 until August 1952 when he was succeeded by L. E.
Grinter, who came from the Illinois Institute of Technol-
ogy, where he had been Vice President, Dean of the
Graduate School, and Research Professor. Upon becom-
ing Acting Vice President in 1969, Dr. Grinter was named
Dean Emeritus of the Graduate School. He was suc-
ceeded by Harold P. Hanson, who came to Florida from
the University of Texas, where he had served as Chairman
of the Department of Physics. In 1971, Dr. Hanson was
appointed Vice President for Academic Affairs. Alexander
G. Smith of the Department of Physicsand 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
September 1979, Dr. Sisler returned to teaching as Distin-
guished Service Professor of Chemistry. F. Michael Wahl,


Associate Dean of the Graduate School, Associate Direc-
tor of Sponsored Research, and Professor of Geology,
served as Acting Dean until the appointment of Francis G.
Stehli in June 1980.
Dr. Stehli came to Florida from Case Western 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 Sep-
tember 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 ap-
pointment, 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 campus.
However, the first graduate degrees-two Master of Arts
with a major in English and a Master of Science with a
major in entomology-were awarded on the Gainesville
campus in 1906. The first programs 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 1988-89, the total number of graduate
degrees awarded was 1,614 in more than 100 fields. The
proportion of Ph.D. degrees, after the initial rapid growth,
remained relatively static during most of the 1980s but
during the last year has shown a significant increase. In
1950, 18 Ph.D.s were awarded. In 1987-88, the total was
304, and in 1988-89, 331 were awarded.

ADMISSION TO THE

GRADUATE SCHOOL

Application for Admission.-Admission forms and in-
formation concerning admission procedures may be
obtained from the Registrar and Admissions Office, 135
Tigert Hall. Prospective students are urged to apply for
admission as early as possible. For some departments
deadlines for receipt of admission applications may-be
earlier than those stated in the current University Calen-
dar; prospective students should check with the appropri-
ate department. Applications which meet minimum stan-
dards are referred to the graduate selection committees of
the various colleges and departments for approval or
disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department,
the prospective student must satisfy the requirements of
the department as well as those of the Graduate School.
Admission to some programs is limited by the resources
available.





6/GENERAL INFORMATION


General Requirements.-The Graduate School, Univer-
sity of Florida, requires both a minimum grade average of
B for all upper-division undergraduate work and accept-
able scores on the verbal, quantitative, and analytical
sections on the GRE Aptitude Test. Although no cut-off
GRE scores are used, the Graduate School uses, as a guide
for admission, scores at or above the national mean score
on each' section. For some departments, and in more
advanced levels of graduate study, undergraduate aver-
ages 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 knowledge of at least one foreign
language. Exceptions to the above requirements are made
only when these and other criteria, including letters of
recommendation, are reviewed by the department, rec-
ommended by the department, and approved by the Dean
of the Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is dependent
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 undergraduate and graduate work is in the
possession of the Registrar, and no transcript will be
accepted as official unless it is received directly from the
registrar of the institution in which the work is done.
Official supplementary transcripts are required as soon as
they are available for any work completed after applica-
tion for admission has been made.
The Board of Regents has also ruled that, in admitting
students for a given academic year, up to 10% may be
admitted as exceptions. Students admitted as exceptions
under the 10% waiver rule must present both an upper-
division grade point average and Graduate Record Exami-
nation Aptitude Test Score with their applications and
meet other criteria required by the University, including
excellent letters of recommendation from colleagues,
satisfactory performance in a specified number of gradu-
ate courses taken as postbaccalaureate students, and/or
practical experience in the discipline for a specified
period of time.
The University encourages applications from qualified
applicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious,
and ethnic groups. The University does not discriminate
on the basis of handicap or age in admission or access to
its programs and activities. The Title IX Coordinator is Dr.
Jacquelyn D. Hart, 352 Tigert Hall, 392-6004.

ADMISSIONS EXAMINATIONS

Graduate Record Examination.-In addition to the
Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Examination which
is required of all applicants, somedepartments 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 Management Admis-
sion Test (GMAT) for the Graduate Record Examination.
Students applying for admission to the Master of Business
Administration (MBA) program must submit satisfactory
scores on the GMAT. Applicants should contact the


Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for
additional information.
Graduate Study in Law.-Students applying to the gradu-
ate 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
(Testof English as a Foreign Language) with the following
exceptions:
1. Foreign students whose native tongue is English or
who have studied at a United States college or university
for one year or more need not submit TOEFL scores but
must submit satisfactory scores on the Aptitude Test of the
Graduate Record Examination before their 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 postponement 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 Management
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.

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 employment of faculty
and staff, or in the operation of any of its programs and
activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations. The
designated coordinator for compliance with Section 504
of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, is Kenneth
J. Osfield, Assistant Dean for Student Services, 129 Tigert
Hall, 392-1261.





GENERAL REGULATIONS / 7


The Office of Student Services provides assistance for
disabled students. Services are varied depending on indi-
vidual needs and include, but are not limited to, special
campus orientation, registration assistance, help in secur-
ing auxiliary learning aids, and assistance in general
University activities. Handicapped students are encour-
aged to contact this office.

CONDITIONAL ADMISSION
Students who are not eligible for direct admission may
be granted conditional admission to the Graduate 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 conditional admission to ascertain their
abilityto pursue graduate work atthe Universityof Florida
if previous grade records or Graduate Record Examina-
tion scores are on the borderline of acceptability or when
specific prerequisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be
notified by the department of the conditions under which
they are admitted. When these conditions have been
satisfied, the department must notify the student in writ-
ing, sending a copy to the Graduate School. Eligible
course work taken while a student is in conditional status
is applicable toward a graduate degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission will
be barred from further registration.

POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
Students who have received a bachelor's degree but
have not been admitted to the Graduate School are
classified as postbaccalaureate students (6-). Postbacca-
laureate enrollment is offered for the following reasons:
(1) to validate undergraduate records 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 stu-
dents who do intend to enter a graduate program at some
future date, but need a substantial number of prerequisite
courses.
Postbaccalaureate students may enroll in graduate
courses but the work taken will not normally be trans-
ferred to the graduate record if the student is subsequently
admitted to the Graduate School. By petition in clearly
justified cases and in conformance with regulations on
courses and credit, it is possible to transfer up to 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 post-
baccalaureate classification to obtain teacher certifica-
tion must provide the college with a clear statement of
certification goals as a part of the requirements for admis-
sion. 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 Administra-
tive Code, may not pursue graduate degrees from this
institution. Exceptions are made for the Florida Coopera-


tive Extension Service (IFAS) county personnel, the faculty
of the P. K. Yonge Laboratory School, and University
Libraries faculty.
Under certain restrictions established by the Graduate
Council, persons holding nontenure- or nonpermanent-
status-accruing titles may pursue nonthesis master's de-
grees 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 curriculum avail-
able to University of Florida graduate students. A course
or research activity not offered on this campus, taken
under the auspices of the Traveling Scholar Program at
another SUS university, will count as graduate creditatthe
University of Florida if approved by the graduate coordi-
nator 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 program, and interested students
should contact the Graduate Student Records Office, 288
Grinter Hall.

Cooperative Degree Programs.-In certain degree pro-
grams, faculty from other universities in the State Univer-
sity System hold graduate faculty status at the University
of Florida. In those approved areas, the intellectual re-
sources of these graduate faculty members are available
to students at the University of Florida.

GENERAL REGULATIONS

It is the responsibility of the graduate student to be-
come informed and to observe all regulations and proce-
dures required by the program the student is pursuing.
The student must be familiar with those sections of the
Graduate Catalog that outline general regulations and
requirements, specific degree program requirements, and
the offerings and requirements of the major department.
Ignorance of a rule does not constitute a basis for waiving
that rule. Any exceptions to the policies stated in the
Graduate Catalog must be approved by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but before the
first registration, the student should consult the college
and/or the graduate coordinator in the major department
concerning courses and degree requirements, deficiencies
if any, and special regulations of the department. The dean
of the college in which the degree program is located or a
representative must approve all registrations. Once a
supervisory committee has been appointed, registration
approval should be the responsibility of the chair.

CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT
RECORDS
The University of Florida assures the confidentiality of
student educational records in accordance with the State





8/GENERAL INFORMATION


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 telephone number.
In general, a present or former student has the right to
personally review his or her own educational records for
information and to ascertain the accuracy of these rec-
ords. Parents of dependent students, as defined by the
Internal Revenue Service, have these same rights. A photo
I.D. or other equivalent documentation or personal recog-
nition by the custodian of record will be required before
access is granted.

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

STUDY LOADS
,The University of Florida operates on a semester system
consistingoftwo 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 students,
including trainees and fellows, is 12 credits. The mini-
mum registration requirement is reduced for those stu-
dents who are graduate assistants. Guidelines for mini-
mum registration for students on appointment are pro-
vided in the Graduate Student Handbook as well as the
Graduate Coordinator's Manual.
Full-time students, not on appointment, must register
for a minimum of 12 credits. Part-time status may be
approved by the graduate coordinator or student's adviser
for students who are not pursuing a degree on a full-time
basis. Such exceptions must be clearly justified and the
approved registration must be commensurate with the use
of University facilities and faculty time.'
The minimum study load for students not on assistant-
ship 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 partof the graduate degree requirements, 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 Catalogentitled 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 avail-
able courses.
Generally speaking graduate courses may not be re-
peated for credit. However, there is no limit on courses
numbered 6971, 6972, 7979, and 7980. Other courses
that may be repeated for credit are designated by max: im-
mediately following the semester credit designation.
Graduate students must conform to the Registrar's
deadline fordrops. However, undercertain circumstances,
substitutions of courses, if approved by the Graduate
School, are permitted after the Registrar's deadline.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by corre-
spondence may be used for graduate credit.
Professional Work.-No courses from a professional
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.

GRADES
The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+,
B, C+, C, and S. Grades of C+ and C in courses below 5000
level are acceptable for credit toward graduate degrees if
the total program meets the B average requirement. In
5000-level courses and above, C+ and C grades count
toward a graduate degree if an equal number of credit
hours in courses numbered 5000 or higher have been
earned with grades of B+ and A, respectively. Grade
points are not designated for S and U grades; these grades
are not 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), 6972
(Engineer'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 nota substitute for
a grade of S, U, or I. Courses for which H grades are
appropriate mustbe so noted in their catalog descriptions,
and must be approved by the Graduate Curriculum Com-
mittee and the Graduate School. This grade may be used
only in special situations where the expected unit of work
may be developed over a'period of time greater than a
single term.
Incomplete Grades.-Grades of I (incomplete) received
during the preceding semester should be removed as soon
as possible. Grades of I carry no quality points and 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





GENERAL REGULATIONS /9


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 Florida
provided credit for the course has not been used for an
undergraduate degree and provided the transfer is ap-
proved by the department and made as soon as the student
is admitted to a graduate program.

CONCURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS
A graduate student who wishes to pursue degrees in two
programs concurrently must have the written approval of
the chairperson of each department involved and the
Dean of the Graduate School. Any student interested in
pursuing concurrent degrees should discuss the proposed
study with the Graduate School's Student Records staff
prior to applying for the programs. If the request is
approved, the student must be officially admitted to both
programs through regular procedures. If the student is
approved to pursue two master's programs, no more than
six hours of course work from one degree program may be
applied toward meeting the requirements for the second
master's degree. These six hours must be by petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School.
INFORMATION FOR VETERANS
The University of Florida is approved for the education
and training of veterans under all public laws in effect;
i.e., Chapter 31, Title 38, U.S. Code (Disabled Veterans);
Chapter 34, Title 38, U.S. Code (Cold-War G.I. Bill); and
Chapter 35, Title 38, U.S. Code (Children of Deceased or
Disabled Veterans).
Students who may be eligible for educational benefits
under any Veterans Administration program are urged to
contact the Veterans Affairs Office, 124 Tigert Hall, as
soon as they are accepted for admission.
Students expecting to receive benefits under one of
these programs must file an application with the Office of
the Registrar. No certification can be made until the
application is on file. Benefits are determined by the
Veterans Administration, and the University certifies
according to these rules and regulations.
The Registrar's Office maintains students' academic
records. A progress report is sent to each student at the
end of the term indicating grades, cumulative hours,
grade points, etc.

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

CHANGE OF MAJOR OR COLLEGE
A graduate student who wishes to change major or
college must make formal application through the Office
of the Registrar and receive approval of the appropriate


department chairperson, college dean, and the Dean of
the Graduate School. Deadline dates for such changes as
specified in the current University Calendar must be met.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE EXAMINATION

A.foreign language examination is not required for all
degree programs and the student should contact the
graduate coordinator in the appropriate department for
specific information regarding any requirement of a for-
eign language.
If a department requires that a student meet the foreign
language requirement by satisfactory performance on the
Graduate School Foreign Language Tests (GSFLT) in
French, Spanish, or German, the student should contact
the Office of Instructional Resources, 1012 Turlington
Hall, for applications and payments of fees. The examina-
tion times and dates are listed in the University Calendar.
Educational Testing Service (ETS) no longer administers
this examination and does not accept application fees or
issue tickets of admission for these tests.

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 examina-
tions as well as the final oral examination for the defense
of the thesis, project, or dissertation. All members of the
supervisory committee must sign the appropriate forms,
including the signature pages, in order for the student to
satisfy the requirements of the examination.
Qualifying and final examinations for graduate stu-
dents are to be held on the University of Florida campus.
Exceptions to this policy are made only for Certain gradu-
ate 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 pro-
grams. 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 department.
Regular issues of Deadline Dates,are available each
semester.
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final
form, the student should obtain the Guide for Preparing
Dissertations and Thesesfrom the Graduate School Edito-
rial Office and should request a records check in the
Graduate Records Office to make certain that all require-
ments 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. Minimum registration for students taking their
final examinations or graduating during the summerterms





10 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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, observing time
limits, limitations on transfer credit, on nonresident work,
and on level of course work.
2. The candidate must have a grade average of B or
higher in the major and in all work attempted in the

REQUIREMENTS FOR

MASTER'S DEGREES

GENERAL REGULATIONS

Thefollowing regulations represent those of the Gradu-
ate School. Colleges and departments may have addi-
tional regulations beyond those stated below. Unless
otherwise indicated in the following sections concerning
master's degrees, these general regulations apply to all
master's degree programs at the University.
Course Requirements.-Graduate credit Is awarded for
courses numbered 5000 and above. The work in the
major field must be in courses numbered 5000 or above.
For work outside the major, courses numbered 3000 or
above may be taken provided they are part of an approved


plan of study. The program of course work for a master's
degree must be approved by the student's adviser, super-
visory committee, or faculty representative of the depart-
ment. No more than six credits from a previous master's
degree program may be applied toward a second master's
degree. These credits are applied only with the written
approval of the Dean of the Graduate School.
If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of work are
required in the minor field. Two six-credit minors may be
taken with departmental permission. Minor work must be
in a department other than the major; in special cases this
requirement may be modified, but only with the written
permission of the Dean of the Graduate School.
Degree Requirements.-Unless otherwise specified, for
any master's degree, the student must earn a minimum of
30 credits as a graduate student at the University of
Florida, of which no more than two courses, totaling, six
to eight hours, earned with a grade of A, B+, or B may be
transferred from institutions approved for this purpose by
the Dean of the Graduate School.
Transfer of Credit.-Only graduate (5000-7999) level
work to the extent of two courses, totaling six to eight
semester hours, earned with a grade of A, B+, or B may be
transferred from an institution approved by the Graduate
School or from postbaccalaureate work at the University
of Florida. Credits transferred from other universities will
be'applied toward meeting the degree requirements but
the grades earned will not be computed in the student's
grade-point average. Acceptance of transfer of credit
requires approval of the student's supervisory committee
and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree must
be made during the student's first term of enrollment in the
Graduate School.
Nonresident or extension work taken at another institu-
tion may not be transferred to the University of Florida for
graduate credit. No courses taken by correspondence or
as part of a professional degree may be used toward a
graduate degree.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible after
the student has been admitted to the Graduate School but
in no case later than the' second semester of graduate
study.
Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs
are nominated by the representative department chairper-
son, approved by the college dean, and appointed by the
Dean of the Graduate School. Only members of the
graduate faculty may be appointed to supervisory com-
mittees. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio
member of all supervisory committees.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a
thesis must consist of at least two members selected from
the graduate faculty. The supervisory committee for a
master's degree without a thesis may consist of one

who wishes to change from the thesis to the nonthesis


option for the master's degree must obtain the permission
of the supervisory committee to make such a change. This
permission must be forwarded to the Graduate School at
least one full semester prior to the intended date of
graduation. The candidate must meet all the requirements
of the nonthesis option as specified above. A maximum of
three credits earned in 6971 (Master's Research) can be
counted toward the degree requirements only if con-
verted to credit as Individual Work. The supervisory
committee must indicate that the work was productive in
and by itself and warrants credit as a special problem or
special topic course.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible after
the student has been admitted to the Graduate School but
in no case later than the end of the second semester of
study. The duties of the supervisory committee are to

MASTER OF ENGINEERING
A student seeking a master's degree in the field of
engineering may become a candidate for the Master of
Engineering degree with or without thesis, provided such
a candidate has a bachelor's degree in engineering from
an ABET-accredited curriculum or has taken sufficient
articulation course work to meet the minimum require-
ments specified by ABET. Students who do not meet this
requirement may become candidates for the Master of
Science degree, provided they meet departmental re-
quirements for admission. The general intent in making
this distinction is to encourage those who are profession-
ally oriented to seek the Master of Engineering degree, and
those who are more scientifically oriented a.d 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 Engineering degree.
The M.C.E. is oriented specifically to the design and pro-
fessional practice in civil engineering. The degree re-
quirements include a minimum number of hoursof 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 Engineer 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 required
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 major must be
graduate level. If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of
work are required: two six-credit minors may be taken. In
addition, a multidisciplinary minor in departments other
than the major may be authorized by the supervisory com-
mittee or program adviser. Courses numbered 3000 and
above may be taken for the minor.
Degree Credit.-In order to qualify for course work
toward the Master of Engineering degree, a student must
first be admitted to the Graduate School at the University
of Florida. The amount of course work toward this degree
that may be taken at an off-campus center will depend
upon the student's individual program and the courses
provided through the center.
Examinations.-A student seeking the Master of Engi-
neering degree with or without thesis is required to pass
a comprehensive oral and/or written examination, ad-
ministered on campus with all participants present, at the
completion of the course work. An off-campus student
who is a candidate for a nonthesis degree must take half
the course work from full-time University of Florida
faculty members and is required to pass a comprehensive
written examination administered on the University of





MASTER'S DEGREES / 15


Florida campus by an examining committee recom-
mended by the Dean of the College of Engineering and
appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. At least
one member of the examining committee must be either

lieu of the written thesis. Students intending to pursue this
option should follow the general procedures below:
1. Using the college form, the student must obtain
approval of a proposed project from the supervisory
committee.
2. The student should include in the proposal a de-
scription of the nature of the project, the method and
sources of research material, and how the project will be
recorded-e.g., slides, tapes, scripts, program notes, etc.
3. Project must conform to departmental formats. To
insure future accessibility and for record keeping pur-
poses, 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 baccalaureate de-
gree in the same or a closely related field.
Students must fulfill the requirements of their disci-
pline, as well as the Graduate School admission criteria.
In cases where the undergraduate degree is not in the area
chosen for graduate study, the student must demonstrate
a level of achievement fully equivalent to the bachelor's
degree in the graduate field concerned. A candidate
found deficient in certain undergraduate areas will be
required to remove the deficiencies by successful com-
pletion of appropriate undergraduate courses.


In addition candidates in art or theatre are required to
submit slides and/or a portfolio of the creative work, or to
audition, prior to being accepted into the program. In
English, the candidate must submit 2 short stories, 2
chapters of a novel, or 6 to 10 poems.
Two years of work in residence (three for theatre) are
usually necessary to complete degree requirements. If

REQUIREMENTS FOR

THE DEGREE OF
ENGINEER


For those engineers who need additional technical depth
and diversification in their education beyond the master's
degree, the College of Engineering offers the degree of
Engineer.
This degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of
graduate work beyond the master's degree. It is not to be





18 / GENERAL INFORMATION


considered as a partial requirement toward the Ph.D.
degree. The student's objective after the master's degree
should be the Ph.D. or the Engineer degree.
Admission to the Program.-To be admitted to the pro-
gram, students must have completed a master's degree in
engineering and apply for admission to the Graduate
School of the University of Florida. The master's degree is
regarded as the foundation for the degree of Engineer. The
master's degree must be based on the candidate having a
bachelor's degree in engineering from an ABET-accred-
ited curriculum or having taken sufficient articulation
course workto meet the minimum requirements specified
by ABET.
Course and Residence Requirements.-A total registra-
tion in an approved program of at least 30 semester credit
hours beyond the master's degree is required. This mini-
mum requirement must be earned through the University
of Florida. The last 30 semester credit hours must be
completed within five calendar years.
Supervisory Committee.-Each student admitted to the
program will be advised by a supervisory committee
consisting of at least three members of the graduate
faculty. Two members are selected from the major depart-
ment and at least one from a supporting department. In
addition, every effort should be made to have a represen-
tative from industry as an external adviser for the student's
program.
This committee should be appointed as soon as pos-
sible after the student has been admitted to the Graduate
School but, in no case, later than the end of the second
semester of study.
This committee will inform the student of all regulations
pertaining to the degree program. The committee is
nominated by the department chairperson, approved by
the Dean of the College of Engineering, and appointed by
the Dean of the Graduate School. The Dean of the
Graduate School is an ex-officio member of all supervi-
sory committees and should be notified in writing in
advance of all committee meetings. If a thesis or report is
a requirement in the plan of study, the committee will
approve the proposed thesis or report and the plans for
carrying it out. The thesis must be submitted to the
Graduate School. The committee will also conduct the
final examination on campus when the plan of study is
completed.
Plan of Study.-Each plan of study is developed on an
individual basis for each student. Thus, there are no
specific requirements for the major or minor; each student
is considered as a separate case. If the plan of study
includes a thesis, the student may register for from 6 to 12
semester credit hours of thesis research in a course
numbered 6972.
Thesis.-The thesis should represent performance at a
level above that ordinarily associated with the master's
degree. It should clearly be an original contribution; this
may take the form of scientific research, a design project,
or an industrial project approved by the supervisory
committee. Work on the thesis may be conducted in an
industrial or governmental laboratory under conditions
stipulated by the supervisory committee.
Final Examination.-After the student has completed all
work on the plan of study, the supervisory committee
conducts a final comprehensive oral and/or written ex-
amination, which also involves a defense of the thesis if
one is included in the program. This examination must be
taken on campus with all participants present.


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE

ED.S. AND ED.D.

dergraduate grade average and verbal-quantitative total
score on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Exami-
nation necessary for admission to the Graduate School,
University of Florida.
2. Provided evidence of good scholarship for previous
graduate work (a 3.5 grade-point average or above, as
computed by the University of Florida, will be considered
satisfactory).
3. Successfully completed 36 credits of professional
course work in education. Applicants for admission to
advanced degree programs in the College of Education
who meet all the requirements except for successfully
completing 36 credits of professional education courses
may be given provisional admission and full admission
when they have completed the required 36 credits.
4. Presented a record of successful professional experi-
ence, the appropriateness of which will be determined by
the instructional department passing on the applicant's
qualifications for admission. In some instances, depart-
ments may admit students with the understanding that
further experience may be required before the student will
be recommended for the degree.
The judgment about admission of an individual is made
by the major department, the College of Education, and
the Graduate School, University of Florida.


SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION

Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the
development of the competencies needed for a specific
job. Programs are available in the various areas of concen-
tration within the Departments of Counselor Education,
Educational Leadership, Foundations of Education, In-
struction and Curriculum, and Special Education.
To study for this degree, the student must apply and be
admitted to the Graduate School of the University of





ED.S. AND ED.D. DEGREES / 19


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 accepted for the program
must contribute to the unity and the stated objective of the
total program. Students are tested (in no case earlier than
six months prior to receipt of degree) in both a written and
an oral examination, given on campus by a committee
selected by the department chairperson. A thesis is not
required; however, each program will include continuing
attention to a research component relevant to the profes-
sional role for which the student is preparing.
Students who enter the program with an appropriate
master's degree from another accredited institution must
complete a minimum of 36 credits of post-master's study
to satisfy the following requirements.
1. Twenty-one credits in graduate level courses.
2. At least 12 credits in graduate level professional
education courses.

versity of Florida for at least six credits in a single semester.
Twelve credits for appropriate courses offered off-
campus by the University of Florida may be transferred to
the program. Six credits may be transferred from another
institution of the State University System or from any
institution offering a doctoral degree; however, credit
transferred from another institution reduces proportion-
ately the credit transferred from University of Florida off-
campus courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's
degree only must, during the 72-credit program, satisfy
these requirements in addition to the requirements of the
Master of Education degree or its equivalent.

DOCTOR OF EDUCATION

A doctoral candidate is expected to achieve under-
standing of the broad field of education and competence
in an area of specialization. Programs are available in the
various areas of concentration within the Departments of
Counselor Education, Educational Leadership, Founda-
tions of Education, Instruction and Curriculum, and Spe-
cial Education.
Admission to a program of work leading to the degree
of Doctor of Education requires admission to the Gradu-
ate School.
A minimum of 90 credits beyond the bachelor's degree
is required for the doctoral degree. Master's degrees
outside the major require departmental petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School. All master's degrees counted
in the 90-hour minimum must have been earned within
the last seven years. No more than 30 hours of a master's
degree from another institution will be transferred to a
doctoral program. All courses beyond the master's degree
taken at another institution, to be applied toward the
Doctor of Education degree, must be taken at an institu-
tion offering the doctoral degree and must be approved for
graduate credit by the Graduate School of the University
of Florida.
Minors.-Minor work or work in cognate fields is re-
quired. Minor work may be completed in any department,
other than the major department, approved for master's or
doctoral degree programs as listed in the Catalog. If one
minor is selected, at least 15 credits of work therein will


be required; if two minors are chosen, one minor must
include at least 12 credits of course work, the other at least
5 credits.
Courses in physical education approved by the College
of Health and Human Performance and the Graduate
School as subject matter or content courses may be used
in the cognate work or as a minor.
In lieu of a minor or minors, the candidate may present
a suitable program of no fewer than 15 credits of cognate
work in at least two departments. If two fields are in-
cluded, 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 examinations and approval
of a dissertation topic. Recommendation 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
examination has been passed and a dissertation topic has
been approved by the student's supervisory committee.
Qualifying Examination.-The applicant is recom-
mended for the qualifying examination by the supervisory
committee after completion of sufficient course work.
The examination, administered on campus by the
student's major department, consists of (1) a general
section, (2) a field of specialization section, (3) examina-
tion in the minor or minors, where involved, and (4) an
oral examination conducted by the applicant's supervi-
sory committee.
At least five faculty must be. present for the oral portion
of the examination; however, only members of the super-
visory 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 ap-
proved 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 requirements in all pro-
grams. 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 Dis-
sertation, and the Final Examination, the student is re-
ferred to the material presented under the heading Re-
quirements for the Ph.D. These statements are applicable
to both degrees.

REQUIREMENTS FOR

THE PH.D.

Doctoral study consists of the independent mastery of
a field of knowledge and the successful pursuit of re-
search. Consequently, doctoral programs are more flex-
ible and varied than those leading to other graduate





20 / GENERAL INFORMATION


degrees. The Graduate Council does not specify what
courses will be required for the Ph.D. degree. The general
requirement is that the program should be unified in
relation to a clear objective, that it should have the
considered approval of the student's entire supervisory
committee, and that it should include an appropriate
number of credit hours of doctoral research.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

The course requirements for doctoral degrees vary from
field to field and from student to student. Master's degrees
outside the major require departmental petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School. All master's degrees counted
in the 90-hour minimum must have been earned in the last
seven years. No more than 30 hours of a master's degree
from another institution will be transferred to a doctoral
program. All courses beyond the master's degree taken at
another university, to be applied to the Ph.D. degree, must
be taken at an institution offering the doctoral degree and
must be approved for graduate credit by the Graduate
School of the University of Florida. The student's supervi-
sory committee has the responsibility for recommending
individual courses of study for each doctoral student
subject to the approval of the Dean of the Graduate
School.
Major.-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to
do the major work in a department specifically approved
for the offering of doctoral courses and the supervision of
dissertations. These departments are listed under Gradu-
ate Programs.
Minor.-With the approval of the supervisory commit-
tee, the student may choose one or more minor fields.
Minor work may be completed in any department, other
than the major department, approved for master's or
doctor's degree programs as listed in this Catalog.
If 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. Compe-
tence 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 department, provided
that the minor has a clearly stated objective and that the
combination of courses representing the minor shall be
approved by the Graduate School. This procedure is not
required for a departmental minor.

LEAVE OF ABSENCE

A doctoral student who will not be registered at the
University of Florida for a period of more than one
semester must request written permission from his/her
faculty adviser for a leave of absence for a designated
period of time.

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE

Supervisory committees are nominated by the depart-
ment 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 commit-
tees and should be notified in writing well in advance of
all examinations conducted by such committees.

Duties and Responsibilities.-Duties of the supervisory
committee follow:
1. To inform the student of all regulations governing the
degree sought. It should be noted, however, that this does
not absolve the student from the responsibility of inform-
ing himself concerning these regulations. (See Student
Responsibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointmentto review the
qualifications of the student and to discuss and approve a
program of study.
3. To meet to discuss and approve the proposed disser-
tation project and the plans for carrying it out.
4. To conduct the qualifying examination or, in those
cases where the examination is administered by the
department, to take part in it. In either event, nofewer 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 suggestions for completion.
6. To meet on campus when the dissertation is com-
pleted and conduct the final oral examination to assure
that the dissertation is a piece of original research and a
contribution to knowledge. No fewer than five faculty
members, plus the graduate dean's representative, 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 commit-
tee.

Membership.-The supervisory committee for a candi-
date for the doctoral degree shall consist of no fewer than
four members selected from the graduate faculty. At least
two members 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 Univer-
sity of Florida.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee will
include at least one person 'selected from the graduate
faculty from outside the discipline of the major for the
purpose of representing the student's minor. In the event
that the student elects more than one minor, each minor
area may, atthe discretion of the departments concerned,
be represented on the supervisory committee.
When a minor is not designated, the supervisory com-
mittee will include at least one member of the graduate
faculty from outside the discipline of the major. The
Graduate Council desires each supervisory committee to
function as a university committee, as contrasted with a
departmental committee, in order to bring university-
wide standards to bear upon the various doctoral degrees.
A cochairperson may be appointed to serve during a
planned absence of the chairperson.





PH.D. DEGREE/ 21


LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT

Any foreign language requirement, or a substitute there-
for, for the Ph.D. is established by the major department

The.student must be registered in the term in which the
qualifying examination is given.
The examination, prepared and evaluated by the full
supervisory committee or the major and minor depart-
ments, is both written and oral and covers the major and
minor subjects. The results of the written examination
must be returned to and discussed with the student before
the oral portion of the qualifying examination. At least five
faculty members, including the supervisory committee,
must be present with the student at the oral portion. The
supervisory committee has the responsibility at this time
of deciding whether the student is qualified to continue
work toward a Ph.D. degree.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Gradu-
ate School must be notified. A re-examination may be
requested, but it must be recommended by the supervi-
sory committee and approved by the Graduate School. At
least one semester of additional preparation is considered
essential before re-examination.
Time Lapse.-Between the qualifying examinations and
the date of the degree there must be a minimum of two
semesters. The semester in which the qualifying examina-
tion is passed is counted, provided 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 candi-


dacy. Such admission requires the approval of the student's
supervisory committee, the department chairperson, the
college dean, and the Dean of the Graduate School. The
approval must be based on (1) the academic record of the
student, (2) the opinion of the supervisory committee
concerning overall fitness for candidacy, (3) an approved
dissertation topic, and (4) a qualifying examination as
described above. Application for admission to candidacy
should be made as soon as the qualifying examination has
been passed and a dissertation topic has been approved
by the student's supervisory committee. A student may
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 independ-
ent 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 accompanied by four unpaged separate
copies of the abstract, a letter of transmittal from the
supervisory chairperson, and all doctoral forms. After
corrections have been made, and no later than the speci-
fied formal submission date, the fully signed copy of the
dissertation, together with the signed Final Examination
Report, should be returned to the Graduate School. The
original copy of the dissertation is sent by the Graduate
School to the Library for microfilming and hardbinding. A
second copy, reproduced on required thesis paper, should
be given to the office of the college dean for subsequent
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 pub-
lication by microfilm.
Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copyright the
microfilmed dissertation for a charge of $25 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 Registra-
tion Certificate, candidates must give permanent ad-
dresses through which they can always be reached.

FINAL EXAMINATION

After submission of the dissertation and the completion
of all other prescribed work for the degree, but in no case
earlier than 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





22 / GENERAL INFORMATION


campus. An announcement of the scheduled examina-
tion must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School 10
working days before the selected date. At least five faculty
members including the supervisory committee, must be
present with the candidate at the oral portion of this
examination. The Dean of the Graduate School will be
represented by a member of the Doctoral Research Fac-
ulty. 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 Examina-
tion 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.-AII 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 require-
ments for the degree, including satisfactory defense and,
final acceptance of the dissertation, may request certifica-
tion to that effect prior to receipt of the degree. Certifica-
tion request forms, available in the Graduate School

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS-
FLORIDA OR NON-FLORIDA

(Section 6C-7.005 Florida Administrative Code.
(1) For the purpose of assessing registration and tuition
fees, a student shall be classified as a resident or a
nonresident. A "resident for tuition purposes" 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 pur-
poses," a person, or, if a dependent child, the 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 qualification. 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 applicant for
admission to a university shall be required 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 domi-
cile 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 he 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 evidence of residency, age, and the general
circumstances 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 Stat-
utes.
(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 resi-
dent for purposes of satisfying the 12-month durational
requirement.
(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 depend-
ent child, the parent or parents, establish domicile or legal
residence elsewhere, shall continue to enjoy the in-state
tuition rate for a statutory grace period. This grace period
shall be measured in accordance with the provisions of
Section 240.1201(8), Florida Statutes.
(g) The legal residence of a dependent child whose
parents are divorced, separated, or otherwise living apart
shall be deemed to be Florida if either parent is a legal
resident of Florida, regardless 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 permit-
ted to reenroll at an institution of higher education in this
state as a resident for tuition purposes in accordance with
the provisions of Section 240.1201 (10), Florida Statutes.
(i) A member of the Armed Forces on active duty
stationed in Florida, and the spouse and dependents of
such member, shall be classified as residents for tuition
purposes.
(j) Full-time instructional and administrative person-
nel employed by state public schools, community col-
leges, and institutions of higher education, and the spouses
and dependent children of such individuals, shall be'
classified as residents for tuition purposes.
(2) An individual shall not be classified as a resident for
tuition purposes and, thus, shall not be eligible to receive





EXPENSES / 23


the in-state tuition rate, until the individual has provided
satisfactory evidence as to his or her legal residence and
domicile to appropriate university officials. In determin-
ing residence, the university shall require evidence such
as a voter registration, driver's license, automobile regis-
tration, location of bank account, rent receipts or any
other relevant materials as evidence that the applicant has
maintained 12 months' residence immediately prior to
qualification. To determine if the student is a dependent
child, the university shall require evidence such as copies
of the aforementioned documents. In addition, the univer-
sity may require a notarized copy of the parent's IRS
return. If a nonresident wishes to qualify for resident
tuition status in accordance with Section (1)(d) above, the
applicant must present evidence of the spouse's legal
residence with certified copies of the aforementioned
documents. "Resident student" classification shall also be
construed to include students to whom an Immigration
Parolee card or a Form 1-94 (Parole Edition) was issued at
least one year prior to the first day of classes for which
resident student status is sought, or who have had their
resident alien status approved by the United States Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service, or who hold an
Immigration and Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a
notice of an approved adjustment of status application, or
Cuban Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees or other refu-
gees or asylees so designated by the United States Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service 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 applicant for
such classification.

(3) In applying this policy,
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the
institution, or a person allowed to register at the institution
on a space available basis.
(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true, fixed,
and permanent home, and to which whenever the person
is absent the person has the intention of returning.
(c) "Parent" shall mean an individual's father or
mother, or if there is a court appointed guardian or legal
custodian of the individual, other than the father or
mother, it shall mean the guardian or legal custodian.
(d) The term "dependent child" as used in this rule, is
the same as a dependent as defined in the Internal
Revenue Code of 1954.

(4) In all applications for admission or registration at the
institution on a space available basis a "resident fortuition
purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent child, the parent
of the applicant, shall make and file with such application
a written statement, under oath, that the applicant is a
bona fide resident and domiciliary of the state of Florida,
entitled as such to classification as a "resident for tuition
purposes" under the terms and conditions prescribed for
residents and domiciliaries of the state of Florida. All
claims to "resident for tuition purposes" classification
must be supported by evidence as stated in 6C- 7.005(1),
(2) if requested by the registering authority.
(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child, the
individual's parent, after maintaining a legal residence


and being a bona fide domiciliary of Florida for twelve
(12) months, immediately prior to enrollment and quali-
fication as a resident, rather than for the purpose of
maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode inci-
dent to enrollment in an institution of higher education,
may apply for and be granted classification as a "resident
for tuition purposes"; provided, however, that those stu-
dents who are nonresident aliens or who are in the United
States on a nonimmigration visa will not be entitled to
reclassification. An application for reclassification as a
"resident for tuition purposes" shall comply with provi-
sions of subsection (4) above. An applicant who has been
classified as a "nonresident for tuition purposes" attime of
original enrollment shall furnish evidence as stated in 6C-
7.005(1) to the satisfaction of the registering authority that
the applicant has maintained residency in the state for the
twelve months immediately prior to qualification re-
quired to establish residence for tuition purposes. In the
absence of such evidence, the applicant shall not be
reclassified as a "resident for tuition purposes." It is
recommended that the 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 re-
quest for reclassification and the necessary documenta-
tion is not received by the registrar prior to the last day of
registration for the term in which the student intends to be
reclassified, the student will not be reclassified for that
term.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident for
tuition purposes" status to applicant therefore may be
initiated after appropriate administrative remedies are
exhausted by the filing of a petition for review pursuant to
Section 120.68 Florida Statutes.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for tuition
purposes," which status is based on a sworn statement
which is false shall, upon determination of such falsity, be
subject to such disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed
by the president of the university.

UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES

The University of Florida Libraries form the largest
information resource system in the state of Florida, and
materials are housed in several locations which support
broad disciplinary areas.
Generally, most of the agricultural, science, and tech-
nology holdings will be found in the Marston Science
Library and most humanities and social science materials,
including business and journalism, will be found in
Libraries East and West. However, several separate col-
lections have been organized which support particular
subject or area studies programs at both the undergradu-
ate and graduate levels. Holdings for visual arts, architec-
ture, and building construction materials will be found in
the Architecture and Fine Arts Library (201 Fine Arts
Building A), most education materials in the Education
Library (1500 Norman Hall), most Latin America materi-
als 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 Cen-
ter Library (JHMHSC Communicore) and the Legal Infor-
mation 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 volumes,
more than 2,300,000 units of microform, maintain more
than 29,000 current serials, and roughly 20,000 machine
readable data files.
The Libraries are a regional depository for U.S. federal
documents (Documents, 254 Library West); uncataloged
federal documents number over 600,000. There are also
large collections of foreign, international, state, and local
documents. Most 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 Library) is
an extensive repository of maps, atlases, aerial photo-
graphs, and remote sensing imagery with particular col-
lection strengths for the southeastern United States, Flor-
ida, Latin America, and Africa south of the Sahara.
A number of nationally significant research resources,
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, Li-
brary East), among the world's greatest collections of
literature for children; and the Parkman D. Howe Collec-
tion of American Literature (Rare Books and Manuscripts
Collection, 531 Library West). The P. K. Yonge Library of





SPECIAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS / 33


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 Ar-
chives (450 Library East) maintain the corporate memory
of the University's academic and administrative pro-
grams.
More than 90 percentof the cataloged collection can be
located through the Libraries' online catalog which is
called LUIS (Library Users Information Service). Termi-
nals are available in every library location, 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 library locations.
Current information regarding the hours at Library East
and West may be obtained by telephoning 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 complex
modern analytical instrumentation and to promote its
efficient usage on the campus and in the state. This is
accomplished by coordinating campuswide usage, help-
ing to provide resources for maintenance, upgrading
existing instruments and developing new techniques,
planning purchases of major new instruments, training
and supervising users, and providing professional scien-
tists to supervise the solution of individual problems.
Center personnel also direct users to other campus facili-
ties, if necessary. For example, the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) and the Departmentof Chem-
istry both have a number of analytical facilities that are
available to some users. .
The instruments involved include several electron
microscopes (TEM, SEM, AEM) with full analytical and
imaging capabilities, instruments directed toward surface
analysis (i.e., AES, ISS, SIMS and XPS, RBS, PIXE and
NRA), and several mass spectrometers.
Education and training are achieved by a variety of
means. The MAIC offers short courses annually in several
specialized areas, e.g., scanning electron microscopy,
transmission electron microscopy, vacuum technology,
surface science, and optical microscopy. These are open
both for graduate credit and to those outside the university
community. (The Chemistry Department, IFAS, and the
Engineering and Industrial Experiment Station also regu-
larly offer several short courses of a complementary
nature.) Some individually supervised training directed
by Center personnel is available to graduate students.
The overall aim of the MAIC is thus to make possible the
solution of any scientific or technological problem that
requires state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation and to


make these capabilities accessible to all university and
state personnel. Cooperation with state industries is also
encouraged where this is legal and appropriate.
The administration and professional staff of the MAIC
are located in 217 Materials Science and Engineering
Buildingwhere further information may be obtained upon
request.
MONOGRAPH SERIES

The Graduate School sponsors two monograph series
devoted to the publication of research primarily by pres-
ent and former members of the scholarly community of
the University. The Social Sciences Monographs are
published each yearwith subjects drawn from anthropol-
ogy, economics, history, political science, sociology,
education, geography, law, and psychology. The Hu-
manities Monographs are published each year with sub-
jects 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 department of the
University of Florida. Through its affiliation with the Uni-
versity, 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 completed 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 admis-
sion charge.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthro-
pology and natural history. Its accessory functions as an
educational arm of the University are carried forward
through interpretive displays and scientific publications.
Under the administrative control of the director are the
three departments of the Museum: Natural Sciences, staffed
by scientists and technicians concerned with the study and
expansion of the research collections of animals; Anthro-
pology, whose staff members are concerned with the study
of historic and prehistoric people and their cultures; Inter-
pretation, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of
knowledge through museum exhibit techniques and edu-
cation programs. Members of the scientific and educa-
tional staff of the Museum hold dual appointments in
appropriate teaching departments. Through these appoint-
ments, 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 lorida Museum
of Natural History. The combined Sarasota and Gainesville
holdings in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum of Ento-
mology as the largest in the western hemisphere and the
premier Lepidoptera research center in the world. The
Allyn Museum publishes the Bulletin oftheAllyn Museum
of Entomology and sponsors the Karl Jordan Medal. The
Allyn Collection serves as a major source for taxonomic
and biogeographic research by a number of Museum and
Department of Zoology faculty and students, as well as a
great many visiting entomologists from around the world.
The Swisher Memorial Tract and the Ordway Preserve
are adjacent pieces of land totalling some 9,300 acres. The
land includes an array of habitats including marsh, lakes,
sandhills, and mesic hammocks. Jointly administered by





34 / GENERAL INFORMATION


the School of Forest Resources and Conservation and the
Florida Museum of Natural History, this area supports
several research activities centering on the ecology of
threatened species and the restoration of the native long-
leaf pine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and dissertation
research projects consistent with the aims of the preserve
are actively encouraged.
The herbarium of the University of Florida is also a part
of the Museum. It contains over 150,000 specimens of
vascular plants and 170,000 specimens of nonvascular
plants. In addition, the herbarium operates a modern gas
chromatographic/mass spectrometer laboratory for the
study and identification of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's hold-
ings. Materials are constantly being added to the collec-
tions both through gifts from friends and as a result of
research activities of the Museum staff. The archaeologi-
cal and ethnological collections are noteworthy, particu-
larly in the aboriginal and Spanish colonial material
remains frorf the southeastern United States and the
Caribbean. There are extensive study collections of birds,
mammals, mollusks, reptiles, amphibians, fish, inverte-
brate and vertebrate fossils, and a bioacoustic archive
consisting of original recordings of animal sounds. Op-
portunities are provided for students, staff, and visiting
scientists to use the collections. Research and field work
are presently sponsored in the archaeological, paleontol-
ogical, and zoological fields. Students interested in these
specialties should make application to the appropriate
teaching department. Graduate assistantships are avail-
able in the Museum in areas emphasized in its research
programs.

UNIVERSITY PRESSES OF FLORIDA
The University of Florida Press is a member of Univer-
sity Presses of Florida, the scholarly publishing agency of
the State University System of Florida.
The purpose of the University of Florida Press is to
encourage, seek out, and publish original and scholarly
manuscripts appropriate to a university recognized for the
quality of its research and scholarship. In addition to the
broad range of state, regional, African, and Latin Ameri-
can titles, the Press publishes books of general interest.
The University of Florida Press Board of Managers, 15

The goal of the systemwide publishing agency, as
embodied in Board of Regents policy, is
to publish books, monographs, journals, and other
types of scholarly or creative works. [University Presses
of Florida] shall publish original works by state univer-
sityfaculty members but it may also publish meritorious
works originating elsewhere and may republish out-of-
print works.
Each university's faculty publishing committee is inde-
pendently responsible for selecting works for publication


and distribution through the facilitiesof University Presses
of Florida.

INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE
STUDIES PROGRAMS

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES
As the oldest and largest institution of higher education
in a state at the leading edge of a rapidly changing global
environment, the University of Florida has a comprehen-
sive commitment to excellence in international educa-
tion. It extends from foreign language instruction, area
studies programs, study abroad opportunities, and inter-
national exchanges into every facet of its teaching, re-
search and service. The University is dedicated to serving
the international interests of Florida and the nation and to
preparing its students for the global challenges and oppor-
tunities of the 21 st Century.
Duringthe last three decades, the University of Florida's
commitment to international studies has expanded rap-
idly. 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 relations, and an English Language Insti-
tute for speakers of other languages. Programs in Asian
Studies, Soviet and East European Studies, and West
European Studies have been added to the undergraduate
curriculum. The University of Florida has participated in
programs of assistance and development in many major
areas of the world: Africa, South America, Middle Amer--
ica, and Southeast Asia. There has also been a corre-
sponding increase in the number of faculty members
involved in teaching and in research within the field of
international studies.
In January 1971, the University opened the $1.6 million
federally funded Graduate School and International Stud-
ies Building, dedicated and named Linton E. Grinter Hall.
The modern four-story building contains faculty offices,
study cubicles, and seminar rooms, as well as the offices
of the Graduate School, the Division of Sponsored Re-
search, the Center for African Studies, the Center for
International Student and Faculty Exchanges, Program in
Linguistics, and the Center for Latin American Studies.
The expansion of efforts in these directions represents
a conviction on the part of the University that today's
students must be aware, in more than a superficial way, of
developments and trends outside our national boundaries
if they are to live in a world of peace and harmony.
International education is essential for the citizenry and
leaders of the twenty-first century-the students of today.
As an indication of the University's continuing commit-
ment to international studies and its importance to all
areas of graduate education, in June 1985, the Provost
asked the Dean of the Graduate School to accept the
additional assignment of Dean of International Studies
and Programs. In this capacity, the Dean coordinates the
activities of the University's Council on International
Studies and Programs and represents the University at
various meetings and on councils and committees related
to international academic activities, projects, and enter-
prises.
The Center for International Student and Faculty

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 concentration empha-
sizes training and research in area and language studies,
which develop a greater understanding of Latin America's
cultures and societies. Students concentrate in one de-
partment, which may be Anthropology, Economics, Food
and Resource Economics, Geography, History, Political
Science, Romance Languages and Literatures (Spanish),
or Sociology. This option is especially suited to the needs
of students who wish to obtain a well-rounded back-
ground 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 contempo-
rary Latin American problems. Students may concentrate
in Brazilian studies, Caribbean studies, international
communications, museum studies, population studies,
tropical agriculture, and tropical conservation and devel-
opment. This option builds on prior professional or
administrative experiences and prepares students fortech-
nical and professional work related to Latin America and
the Caribbean.
Other requirements, common to both options, are (1)
12 credits of Latin American area and language courses in
two other departments, including one 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 interdis-
ciplinary Latin American topic.

The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a con-
sortium of 46 major educational and research institutions
in the United States and abroad, created to promote
understanding of tropical environments and their intelli-
gent use by people. The University of Florida is a charter
member. Graduate field courses in tropical biology and
ecology, agricultural ecology, population biology, and
forestry are offered in Costa Rica during the spring and
summer terms. Students are selected on a competitive
basis from all OTS member institutions.
A Universityof Florida graduate student may register for
eight credits in an appropriate departmental course cross-
listed with OTS, e.g., BOT 6951 or PCB 6357C. The
University of Florida does not require tuition for OTS
courses. Registration is on the host campus. However,
students on Graduate Assistantships must be registered at
the University of Florida as well. Research grants are
available through OTS. Further information may be ob-
tained from University of Florida representatives to the
OTS board of directors, located in 422 Bartram Hall and
3028 McCarty Hall.

environment and its development.
Minor in Tropical Agriculture.-An interdisciplinary
minor in tropical agriculture may be planned at both the
master's and doctoral levels by students' majoring in
agriculture, forestry, and other fields where knowledge of
the tropics is relevant. The minor may include courses
treating characteristics of the tropics: its soils, water,
vegetation, climate, agricultural production, and the lan-
guage and culture of tropical countries.
Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA).-A program
for a specialization (with certificate) in tropical agriculture
for graduate students is available through the College of
Agriculture. Application brochures are available from the
Office of the Dean for Resident Instruction (College of

ture. Students entering the program will receive individ-
ual counseling to insure that each receives appropriate
course work, language preparation, and (if desired) expe-
rience in a foreign country.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credits of courses.
The "typical" certificate program will consist of 12 to 24
credits. These hours may, with 'approval from regular
graduate committees, also count toward the M.S. or Ph.D.




INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE STUDIES / 37


Students from all academic backgrounds who have career
interests in tropical agriculture are encouraged to con-
sider the CTA. The CTA Steering Committee will counsel
individual students into appropriate biological, agricul-
tural, social, and management courses.
Students in the CTA program are required to demon-
strate proficiency in a second language. A score on the
Foreign Service Institute (FSI) Language 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 Portug-
ese is strongly suggested.

scientific center of excellence foctised on human commu-
nicative behavior. The Institute's program includes (but is
not confined to) three broad areas: 1) the communicator(s),
i.e., the physiological/ physical/psychological processes
by which individuals generate and transmit communica-
tive signals (speech), 2) the respondentss, and how recep-
tive (hearing) and neural mechanisms function to process
signals within a variety of environments, and 3) the
message, i.e., the codes and signs (language) that consti-
tute the sum total of these communicative messages. The
IASCP faculty includes students and scientists with a
variety of interests and training. Expertise is represented
by the phonetic sciences, speech pathology and audiol-
ogy, psychology, psycholinguistics, linguistics, psy-
choacoustics, auditory neurophysiology, electrical engi-


neering, computer sciences, physics, communication
studies, biocommunication, dentistry, and medicine.

ies of sources, atmospheric transformation, and transport
of acidic substances for a Florida acid rain assessment; (2)
studies of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation levels
reaching the ground for photobiological applications; (3)
evaluation of the environmental impact for the conversion
of Florida's oil boilers to coal including development of
interpolated analytic wind roses and pollutant concentration
contours for Florida; (4) interplay of energy production
needs relative to air quality standards including the tech-
nical, scientific, medical, agricultural, psychological, eco-
nomic, 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-burn-
ing coal, coal-water slurries, biomass, and waste with

robust stabilization of nonlinear systems, and the theory
of adaptive control of nonlinear systems. The Center also
conducts research in the area of algebraic theory of linear
control, including realization theory, partial realization
theory, stabilization and control of linear time-invariant
and linear time-varying systems, linear delay-differential
systems, and adaptive control of linear systems.

MINERAL RESOURCES RESEARCH CENTER

To meet the future demand for mineral resources,
which is critically dependent on the availability of low
grade complex ores, both the federal and the state govern-
ments have committed themselves to developing the
necessary technology for processing of such ores. As a
result, an interdisciplinary Mineral Resources Research
Center was established in the College of Engineering
under the jurisdiction of the Department of Materials
Science and Engineering. Recently, the research activities
of the Center have been augmented with an educational
program in mineral processing. The major objective of
these twin activities is to investigate specific problems
through application of basic scientific principles and to
provide the skilled personnel needed by the mineral
industries. The current emphasis in research ison process-
ing of low grade phosphate ores, waste disposal problems
in the phosphate industry, processing of energy minerals
such as coal and oil shale, fine particle processing,
applied surface and colloid chemistry, and hydrometal-,
lurgy. These programs are truly interdisciplinary and
involve scientists and engineers from such additional

Center, 361 Business, for information.

REAL ESTATE RESEARCH CENTER

The Real Estate Research Center was established in
1973 to facilitate the study of business and economic
problems related to real estate. Faculty members in the
field of real estate serve as the core staff members of the
Center, with research assistance provided by several
graduate students. Faculty members in other departments
and colleges participate in projects requiring multidisci-
plinary inputs. Graduate students also conduct their own
research for theses and dissertations in the Center.
The Center also sponsors or cosponsors a number of
continuing education programs in real estate each year,
Courses and seminars typically are presented in the areas
of mortgage banking, financial institutions, real estate
appraisal, and real estate investment analysis. Most of
these courses and seminars are open to full-time under-
graduate and graduate students in real estate at the
University of Florida.
Many types of research projects are conducted in the
Center. They range from economic and social issues in
land use planning to analysis of the managerial process
and ratesof return in various types of real estate businesses
and properties. The Center has developed textual materi-
als for organizations such as the Florida Real Estate
Commission and the American Institute of Real Estate
Appraisers.
Contract research projects in the Center have been
sponsored and funded by various agencies of the Florida
'state government, city governments, the Florida Real
Estate Commission, and the Society of Real Estate Apprais-
ers Foundation. For information contact Director, 309
Business Building.

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 student because of the unusual conver-
gence 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 biologi-
cal, medical, or physical sciences, and an introductory
survey of the senses, in-depth training in one or more
sense modalities (vision, hearing, chemical, etc.) and
special advanced studies in basic or applied techniques.
The intent is to develop a broad perspective as well as
necessary skills within an established academic disci-
pline. This provides the foundation upon which sensory
studies will be developed. Affiliation with an academic
degree granting program will also provide an additional
basis for future professional affiliation. Since students will
enter the sensory program with differing backgrounds, the
program of studies will be tailored to the perceived needs
of the student.


Correspondence should be addressed to the Director,
Center for Sensory Studies, Physics Department, 278
Williamson Hall.

URBAN AND REGIONAL RESEARCH CENTER

The Center stimulates and coordinates interdisciplinary
research on urban and regional affairs and works closely
with faculty and graduate students in any discipline
concerned with local, state, regional, national, or interna-
tional human settlements. Since the major thrust of URRC
is research, no formal courses or degree programs are
offered. However, U RRC seeks the participation of faculty
and graduate students who are interested in research on
urban and regional topics. The Center maintains an
updated listing of grant announcements and is ready to
assist in the development of research proposals. Further
inquiries should be made to the Director, Urban and
Regional Research Center, 2326 Turlington Hall.

CENTER FOR WETLANDS

The Department of Agricultural and Extension Educa-
tion offers major work for the degrees of Master of Science
(thesis) and Master of Agriculture (nonthesis) (see Require-
ments for Master's Degrees).
Two curriculum options for graduate study toward
either degree are offered. The extension option is for those
persons currently employed or preparing to be employed
in the cooperative extension service, including home


economics, agriculture, 4-H, and other related areas. The
teaching option is for persons who are teaching voca-
tional agriculture in the public schools and those who
wish to enter the profession and require basic certifica-
tion.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored
in agricultural and extension education as an undergradu-
ate. However, students with an insufficient background in
either agricultural and extension education or technical
agriculture will need to include some basic courses in
these areas in their program.

The Department of Agricultural and Extension Educa-
tion offers major work for the degrees of Master of Science
(thesis) and Master of Agriculture (nonthesis) (see Require-
ments for Master's Degrees).
Two curriculum options for graduate study toward
either degree are offered. The extension option is for those
persons currently employed or preparing to be employed
in the cooperative extension service, including home


economics, agriculture, 4-H, and other related areas. The
teaching option is for persons who are teaching voca-
tional agriculture in the public schools and those who
wish to enter the profession and require basic certifica-
tion.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored
in agricultural and extension education as an undergradu-
ate. However, students with an insufficient background in
either agricultural and extension education or technical
agriculture will need to include some basic courses in
these areas in their program.
The Department of Home Economics offers graduate
students with home economics related interests the op-
portunity for field experience and research activity in the
areas of family and consumer economics, housing, and
foods and nutrition.

These members of the faculty of the Florida State University (*) and
Florida Atlantic University (f) are also members of the graduate faculty of
the University of Florida and participate in the doctoral degree program
in the University of Florida Department of Anthropology.

The Departmentof Anthropology offers graduate work
leading to the Master of Arts (thesis or nonthesis option)
and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Graduate training is
offered in applied anthropology, social and cultural an'-
thropology, archeology, anthropological linguistics, and
physical/ biological anthropology.
There is a general option and an interdisciplinary one.
The general option allows students to concentrate at the
M.A. level on the integration of the four subfields of
anthropology and to specialize at the Ph.D. level. The
interdisciplinary alternative allows students to 1) con-
centrate on one or two subfields of anthropology along
with one or more areas outside of anthropology and 2)
begin early specialization and integration of a subfield of
anthropology and an outside field. More information
about these two options is found in the department
publication on graduate programs and policies that may
be obtained by writing directly to the department.
The Department of Anthropology generally requires a
minimum score of 1100 on the Graduate Record Exami-
nation 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 supervisory committee. Other
requirements for the program are listed in this Catalog
under the Requirements for Master's Degrees.
Students enrolled in the M.A. program who wish to
continue their studies for a Ph.D. must apply to the
department for certification. Minimum requirements will
normally include 1) a minimum grade point 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 Knowledge Examination or the compre-
hensive examination, and 3) a thesis, report, or paper
judged to be of excellent quality by the student's supervi-
sory committee. In most cases, candidates for the Ph.D.
must achieve corhpetency in a language other than Eng-
lish. 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 recipi-
ents at Florida Atlantic University and Florida State Uni-
versity is facilitated by a cooperative arrangement in
which appropriate faculty members of these universities
are members of the graduate faculty of the University of
Florida.
There are two deadlines for receiving completed appli-

The College of Architecture offers a program leading to
the Doctor of Philosophy degree in architecture. Areas of
specialization within this program include architecture,
building construction, and urban and regional planning.
The Department of Architecture offers graduate work
leading to the first professional degree, Masterof Architec-
ture. Students entering the program at the University of
Florida will matriculate in one of the following tracks:
Baccalaureate in Architecture Base.-For those stu-
dents who have a four-year accredited baccalaureate
degree from an architectural program, two years in resi-
dence are normally required for completion of the Master
of Architecture degree. Applications for graduate admis-
sion, including official transcripts, GRE scores, and TOEFL
scores, if necessary, must be received in the Office of the
Registrar by March 15. In addition, applicants are re-
quired to submit to the Department of Architecture, 231
ARCH, University of Florida, the following: a portfolio of
their work in architecture and related fields; a scholarly
statement of intent; and three letters of recommendation
from teachers or employers. This material must be re-
ceived 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 students in this track,
and is prerequisite to the remaining course work. During
graduate studies, each student has the opportunity to
focus a significant amountof course work in one of several
areas of emphasis. The student's overall college experi-
ence, 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 students
holding a baccalaureate degree in any related or nonre-
lated academic area may apply for graduate studies
leading to the degree Masterof Architecture. The program
normally consists of four semesters'of professional pre-
requisite course work prior to entering the 52-credit-hour
curriculum in a specific area of emphasis. A specific
curriculum is developed for each student, offering flexi-
bility for individual career goals while providing a com-
prehensive architecture education. The Master of Archi-
tecture (M.Arch.) degree, the first professional degree, is
awarded upon satisfactory completion of all of the pro-





ARCHITECTURE / 63


gram requirements. This degree prepares the student for
eventual registration as an architect. Applicants, in addi-
tion to satisfying University requirements for admission,
are required to submit to the Department of Architecture,
231 ARCH, University of Florida, the following: a portfo-
lio of their work in architecture and related fields if
applicable; a scholarly statement of intent and objectives;
and three letters of recommendation from teachers or
employers. Students may enter this program in anysemes-
ter. Therefore, applications for graduate admission, in-
cluding 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 architecture
from an accredited five-year professional degree pro-
gram, the graduate faculty in architecture 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 student
work for purposes of record, exhibition, or instruction.
Field trips are required of all students; students should
plan to have adequate funds available. It may be neces-
sary to assess studio fees to defray costs of base maps and
other generally used materials.
The College of Architecture sponsors special curricula
in architecture each summer to enhance the academic
program. These curricula, offered during summer ses-
sions, are intended to supplement required course work.
Each of the three, Preservation Institute: Caribbean; Pres-
ervation Institute: Nantucket; 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.

The Department of Astronomy offers graduate work in
astronomy and astrophysics leading to the degrees of
Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Current
research fields include radio, infrared, and optical astron-
omy; astrometry and data adjustment theory; cosmology;
photometry of compact binaries and intrinsic variables;
photometry of active galactic nuclei; dynamical astron-
omy; structure, kinematics, and dynamics of galaxies;
solar system dynamics; comets; interplanetary dust; satel-
lite interiors; planetary magnetospheres; lunar occulta-
tion observations; radio and optical instrumentation; and
certain topics of theoretical stellar astrophysics. The
Department is active in Voyager radioastronomical inves-
tigations of the magnetospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus
and Neptune. *
Research Facilities.-Rosemary Hill Observatory, about
30 miles from Gainesville, houses 76-cm and 46-cm
reflectors. Instrumentation includes photographic and
CCD cameras, and microprocessor-based photometers.
The observatory contains one terminus of a46-km baseline
radio interferometer. The other terminus is at the Dixie
County Radio Observatory, 50 miles from campus. The
radio observatory has low-frequency (below 40 MHz)
instrumentation consisting of a 7-acre filled aperture,
phase-steered array, and several smaller antennas, ad-
vanced terminal equipment, including wide-band radio
spectrographs. Several research programs use national
astronomy facilities (KPNO, NRAO, NAIC, CTIO, IRTF,
IPAC and the Kuiper Airborne Observatory).
On campus facilities include a research darkroom
containing hypersensitization, sensitometric and photomi-
crographic equipment, an electronics shop, data reduc-
tion rooms with audio and videotape processing equip-
ment, and iris photometer, microdensitometer, blink
comparator, measuring engines, the Palomar Sky Survey,
and a planetary imaging center (under development). The
Department also maintains the International Card Catalog
of Photometric Binaries. Most scientific books and publi-
cations are centrally housed in an extensive science
library located near the Department.


Computer facilities include the University's IBM 3090/
400 mainframe computer with vector facilities, a depart-
mental VAX 11/750, and several powerful workstations
and desktop computers linked by the campus Ethernet.
BITNET, Internet and SPAN network connections are also
available. The University is a Smartnode of the Cornell
National Computer Facility and has a direct link to the
Florida State Supercomputer, in Tallahassee.
For direct admission to the program, a student should
N have a degree in astronomy, physics, or mathematics 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 exami-
nation 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. Complete
details of the, program and research facilities may be
obtained bywritingthe Graduate Coordinator, 211 Bryant

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 anat-
omy/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 genet-
ics; mycology with emphasis on morphology, systematics,
and development; algology with emphasis on algae of
brine ponds; physiology and biochemistry with emphasis
on ion uptake, photosynthesis and photorespiration, sugar
metabolism and transport, growth and development of
selected fungi, calcium-binding proteins and protein
phosphorylation; systematics with emphasis on mono-
graphic and floristic studies; tropical botany and ecology.
For admission to graduate standing a student should
present credits equivalent to those required for under-
graduate majors in the Department, namely 24 credits in


botany, a course in genetics with laboratory, mathematics
through differential calculus, one year of college physics,
and chemistry through organic. Those admitted without
full equivalents of an undergraduate major will be re-
quired to make up the deficiencies by passing appropriate
coursesearly 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 degree. Each student pursuing the Ph.D. degree
will be required to pass a written departmental examina-
tion 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 special resources that
may be utilized in support of graduate student training and
research: (1) the Florida 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 tropi-
cal and subtropical areas, (5) the Center for Aquatic
Plants, and (6) the Fairchild Tropical Garden for research
in the systematics, morphology and anatomy, and eco-
nomic 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 Bot-
any has entered into an arrangement with the Marie Selby
Botanical Gardens of Sarasota. Under this arrangement
students spend a semester in Sarasota as part of a regular
degree program; the academic portions of which are
under the control of faculty members in the Department
of Botany. The course of study is specifically designed by
agreement among the student, the student's graduate
adviser, and the Selby Gardens' Director of Research.
Students register for the Selby course under BOT 6905 for
nine credit hours. Interns are provided with housing on
the garden grounds and a per diem to help with expenses.
Interested students should communicate with the Depart-
ment Chairman or Graduate Coordinator for further de-

These members of the faculty of Florida Atlantic University are also
members of the graduate facultythe UniversofFlorida andparticipate
in the doctoral program in the University of Florida Department of
Chemistry.

The Department offers the Master of Science and Doc-
tor of Philosophy degrees with a major in chemistry and
specialization in analytical, organic, inorganic, or physi-
cal chemistry. The nonthesis degree Master of Science in
Teaching is also offered with a major in chemistry.
New graduate students should have adequate under-
graduate 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 quantitative analysis,
one year of organic chemistry, one year of physical
chemistry, and one semesterof advanced inorganic chem-
istry. Additional courses in instrumentation analysis, ad-
vanced physical and organic 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
registration, and the results of these tests are used in
planning the student's program.
Doctoral candidates are required to complete a series
of courses specified by the 'division of the Chemistry De-
partment in which they choose to specialize, CHM 6470,
and two out-of-major-division courses or equivalent ex-
aminations. Additional courses may be required by the
student's supervisory committee or major professor. For-
eign students whose native language is not English must
achieve a minimum score of 220 on the Test of Spoken
English. All others must meet the departmental language
requirement in German, French, and Russian.
Candidates must serve not less than one year as teach-
ing assistants. This requirement will be waived only
when, in the opinion of the department, unusual circum-
stances 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 departmental requirements for
concentration in physical chemistry, except that only one
out-of-major division course is required. In addition, a
minimum of 15 credits in 4000 level or higher physics
courses or a minimum of 8 such credits in physics and 8
