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
Graduate Council. 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, considers
petitions and policy changes. Members of the graduate
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 succeeded
by Harold P. Hanson, who came to Florida from the
University of Texas, where he had served as Chairman of
the Department of Physics. In 1971, Dr. Hanson was
appointed Vice Presidentfor Academic Affairs. Alexander
G. Smith of the Departmentof Physics and Astronomy and
a former assistant dean of the Graduate School served as
Acting Dean until the appointment of Harry H. Sister. Dr.
Sisler served as Chairman of the Departmentof 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 appointmentof Francis G.
Stehli in June 1980.
pr. 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 toJanuary 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 degreeswere 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 1989-90, the total number of graduate
degrees awarded was 1,664 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 few years has shown a significant increase.
In 1987-88, the total was 304, in 1988-89, 331 were
awarded, and in 1989-90, there were 345.

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 degreeswere 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 1989-90, the total number of graduate
degrees awarded was 1,664 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 few years has shown a significant increase.
In 1987-88, the total was 304, in 1988-89, 331 were
awarded, and in 1989-90, there were 345.

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. Pro-
spective students are urged to apply for admission as early
as possible. For some departments deadlines for receipt of
admission applications may be earlier than those stated in
the current University Calendar;, prospective students
should check with the appropriate department. Applica-
tions which meet minimum standards are referred to the
graduate selection committees of the various colleges and
departments for approval or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department,
the prospective student must satisfy the requirements of
the department as well as those of the Graduate School.
Admission to some programs is limited by the resources
available.
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 General Test. Although no cut-off
GRE scores are used, the Graduate School uses, as a guide
for admission, scores ator 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.






6 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 General 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.-ln addition to the
General Test of the Graduate Record Examination which
is required of all applicants, some departments encourage
the applicant to submit scores on one or more advanced
subject tests of the Graduate Record Examination. The
scores on all tests taken will be considered in regard to
admission.
Graduate Study in Business Administration.-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 General Testand a score of at least 550 on the TOEFL
(Test of English as a Foreign Language) with the following
exceptions:
1. Foreign students whose native tongue is English or
who have studied at a United States college or university


for one year or more need not submit TOEFL scores but
must submit satisfactory scores on the General Test of the
Graduate Record Examination before their applications
for admission can be considered.
2. 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 scoreson theTOEFL 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 -AcademicSpoken English
I before they may accept teaching assistantships. Students
who score between 220 and 249 must take ENS 5502-
AcademicSpoken English II; this requirement mustbe met
while holding a teaching assignment.
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 Academic Spoken English Office,
1349 Norman 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, P-
202 Marshall Criser Student Services Center, 392-1261.
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 requisiteexamination scores
or final grade records are available. Students may also be





GENERAL REGULATIONS / 7


granted conditional admission to ascertain their ability to
pursue graduate work at the University of Florida if
previous grade records or Graduate Record Examination
scores are on the borderline of acceptability or when
specific prerequisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be
notified by the department of the conditions under which
they are admitted. When these conditions have been
satisfied, the department must notify the student in 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 failingto meetany 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 students
who do intendto enter a graduate program at some future
date, butneed a substantial numberof 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 credit at the Univer-
sity of Florida if approved by the graduate coordinator or
the supervisory committee chair and the Dean of the
Graduate School. Traveling scholars are normally limited
to one term on the campus of the host university. The
deans of graduate schools of the state universities are the
coordinators of the 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
become informed and to observe all regulations and
procedures required by the program the student is
pursuing. The student must be fami liarwith those sections
of the Graduate Catalog that outline general regulations
and requirements, specific degree program requirements,
and the offerings and requirementsof 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, deficien-
cies 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
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 publicon 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






8 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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. Aphoto
I.D. orotherequivalentdocumentation 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 be-
havior that govern undergraduates. The student conduct
code is printed in the Undergraduate Catalog.

STUDY LOADS

The University of Florida operates on a semester system
consistingof two 16-week periods and two 6-weeksummer
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 and the Gradu-
ate Council Policy Manual for Coordinators, as well as in
the Financial Aid section of this Catalog.
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), outside the major
department, may be used for support course work when
taken as part of an approved graduate program.
Courses numbered 5000 and above are limited to
graduate students, with the exception described under
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses
numbered 7000 and above are designed primarily for
advanced 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:
immediately following the semester credit designation.
Graduate students must conform to the Registrar's
deadlinefordrops. However, under certain circumstances,
substitutions of courses, if approved by the Graduate
School, are permitted after the Registrar's deadline.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by 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.

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 notdesignated 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
Committee and the Graduate School. This grade may be
used only in special situations where the expected unitof
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
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-






GENERAL REGULATIONS / 9


proved by the department and made as soon as the student
is admitted to a graduate program.

CONCURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS

Graduate studentwho 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, 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 atthe end
of the term indicating grades, cumulative hours, grade
points, etc.


UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP

Any graduate student may be denied further registration
in the University or in a graduate program should scholas-
tic performance or progress toward completion of the
planned program become unsatisfactory to the depart-
ment, college, or Dean of the Graduate School. Failure to
maintain a B average in all work attempted is, by defini-
tion, 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 andoral 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-

MASTER OF ACCOUNTING

The Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) is the professional
degree for students seeking careers in public accounting,
business organizations, and government. The M.Acc.
program offers specializations in each of the three areas of
auditing/financial accounting, management accounting,
accounting systems, and taxation.
The recommended curriculum to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting is the 3/2 five-year program
with a joint awarding of the Bachelor of Science in
Accounting and the Master of Accounting upon satisfac-
tory completion of the 156-hour program. The entry point
into the 3/2 is the beginning of the senior year.
Students who have already completed an undergradu-
ate degree in accounting may enter the one-year M.Acc.
program which requires satisfactory completion of 34
hours of course work. A minimum of 16 semester credits
must be in graduate level accounting courses. At least 20
of the 34 semester credits must be in graduate level
courses. Courses below the graduate level must have the

in both the Juris Doctor degree awarded by the College of
Law and the Master of Accounting degree awarded by the
Graduate School. The program is designed for students
who have an undergraduate degree in accounting and
who are interested in advanced studies in both account-
ing and law. The joint program requires 20 fewer credits
than would be required if the two degrees were earned
separately. The two degrees are awarded after completion
of the curriculum requirements for both degrees. Students
must take both the GMAT (or the GRE) and the LSAT prior
to admission, and must meet the admission requirements
for the College of Law O.D.) and the Fisher School of
Accounting (M. Acc.). Students must be admitted to the
two programs simultaneously.


MASTER OF AGRICULTURE

The degree of Master of Agriculture is designed for
those students who wish additional training for agri-
business occupations or professions rather than for those
interested primarily in research.
The general requirements are the same as those for the

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

ine the student orally or in writing on (1) the independent
research report, (2) the major subjects, (3) the minor or
minors, and (4) matters of a general nature pertaining to
the field of study. The examination must be given on
campus with all participants present.

MASTER OF BUSINESS
ADMINISTRATION

The requirements for the Master of Business Admini-
stration degree are designed to give students (1) the

and behaviors common to all organizations, and (2) the
analytical, problem-solving, and decision-making skills
essential for effective management. The emphasis is upon


developing the student's capacities and skills for business
decision making.
The curriculum is structured so that students may
extend their knowledge in a specialized field by selecting
an approved concentration. Included in these concentra-
tions are accounting, computer and information sciences,
decision and information sciences, economics, finance,
health and hospital administration, management, market-
ing, and real estate. Several areas of specialization having
different emphases are offered within some concentra-
tions. Students may also expand their knowledge in
several areas instead of specializing and pursue a gener-
alist option by selecting approved courses from more than
one field of business administration.

A heterogeneous student body is seen as an important
asset of the program. Accordingly the undergraduate
background of students includes a wide range of disci-
plines. The curriculum assumes no previous academic
work in managerial disciplines or business administra-
tion. Enrolling students find introductory course work in
statistics, calculus, and financial accounting beneficial.
Students are admitted in the fall semester only. Appli-
cations should be made as early as possible during the
preceding academic year; no later than April 1. For more

nel to serve a variety of functions required in established
and emerging educational activities of modern society. A
thesis is not required.
A minimum of 36 credits is required in all master's
programs with at least half of these credits in courses atthe
5000 level or above. Twenty-one credits in education,
with 15 at the graduate level, and 5 credits in courses
outside education are included. There are two excep-
tions: (1) only 12 credits in education, all at the graduate


level, are required for students having at least 21 credits
in a baccalaureate program for teacher preparation, and
(2) 15 credits in courses outside education are requiredfor
these same students if their master's programs are in art,

Gainesville campus of the University of Florida, including
registration for at least 6 credits in a single semester.


MASTER OF ENGINEERING

A student seeking a master's degree in the field of
engineering may become a candidate for the Master of
Engineering degree with or without 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 and those who
have science-based backgrounds to seek the Master of
Science degree.
Also, the Master of Civil Engineering degree has been
approved as a variantof 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 numberof hours of design
and professional practice instruction atthe 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
forthe 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.






MASTER'S DEGREES / 15


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
Florida campus by anexamining committee recommended
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 the student's
program adviser or a member of the supervisory commit-
tee. If a minor is taken, another member selected from the
Graduate Studies Faculty must be chosen from outside the
major department to represent the student's minor.
The requirement for an on-campus comprehensive
written examination also applies to the nonthesis option
of the Master of Science degree for students in the College
of Engineering.
Examination requirements for the Master of Science
degree are covered in the section Master of Arts and
Master of Science.
A Certificate Program in Manufacturing Systems Engi-
neering has been established as an option for the Master
of Engineering degree of six departments: Aerospace
Engineering, Mechanics, and Engineering Science;
Computer and Information Sciences; Electrical Engineer-
ing; Industrial and Systems Engineering; Materials Sci-
ence and Engineering; and Mechanical Engineering.
Qualification for the certificate requires specified courses
in manufacturing, 18 credits or more of course work
selected from an approved manufacturing systems engi-
neering core, completion of a master's thesis or projection
a manufacturing-related topic, and satisfactory comple-
tion of departmental Master of Engineering requirements.
In most cases, the manufacturing courses will partially
satisfy required and elective course requirements stipu-
lated by the home department.



MASTER OF FINE ARTS

The Master of Fine Arts degree is offered with majors in
art, English, and theatre. The requirements for this degree
are the same as those for the Master of Arts with thesis

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-hourminimum 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.

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.

partments offer special classes for graduate students who
are beginning the study of a language. See the current
Schedule of Courses for the languages in which this
assistance is available.
The ability to use the English language correctly and
effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is
required of all candidates.

PERIOD OF CONCENTRATED STUDY

Candidates for the doctoral degree must satisfy the
minimum requirements for a period of concentrated
study, beyond the first 30 hours counted toward the
doctoral program, by registering for (1) 30 semester hours
in one calendar year, or (2) 36 semester hours in no more
than four semesters within a period of two calendar years
on the University of Florida campus. Courses at the 1000
or 2000 level will not be counted toward the requirement
for concentrated study.

Florida Agricultural Experiment Station where adequate
faculty and facilities are available.

QUALIFYING EXAMINATION

The qualifying examination, which is required of all
candidates for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, may be

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 leastfive

examination and the date of the degree there must be a
minimum of two semesters. The semester in which the
qualifying examination is passed is counted, provided
that the examination occurs before the midpoint of the
term.

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

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.

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

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
parentor parents, shall have established legal residence in
Florida and shall have maintained physical presence 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 domicile
in accordance with the provisions of Section
240.1201 (2)(b), Florida Statutes.
(b) With respect to a dependent child, the legal
residence of such individual's parent or parents shall be
prima facie evidence of the individual's legal residence in
accordance with the provisions of Section 240.1201(4),
Florida Statutes. Prima facie evidence may be reinforced
or rebutted by 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-
entchild, the parentor 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.

nel employed by state public schools, community col-
leges, and institutionsof higher education, and the spouses
and dependent children of such individuals, shall be
classified as residents for tuition purposes.






EXPENSES /23


(2) An individual shall not be classified as a resident for
tuition purposes and, thus, shall not be eligible to receive
the in-state tuition rate, until the individual has provided
satisfactory evidence as to his or her legal residence and
domicile to appropriate 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 thatthe 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 atthe
institution on a space available basis a "residentfor tuition
purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent child, the parent
of the applicant, shall make and file with such application
a written statement, under oath, that the applicant is a
bona fide resident and domiciliary of the state of Florida,
entitled as such to classification as a "resident for tuition
purposes" 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-


fiction 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 orwho 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 "nonresidentfor 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.

SPECIAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS / 33


UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES

The University of Florida Libraries form the largest
information resource system in the state of Florida.
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 (fourth floor Library East), the largest collection of
its kind in the Southeast; the Baldwin Library (second
floor, Library East), among the world's greatest collections
of literature for children; and the Parkman D. Howe
Collection of American Literature (Rare Books and Manu-
scripts Collection, first floor Library East). The P. K. Yonge
Library of Florida History is the state's preeminent Floridi-
ana collection (first floor Library East). 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 gath-
ered into the Belknap Collection (first floor Library East),
and the University Archives (second floor Library East)
maintain the corporate memory of the University's aca-
demic and administrative programs.
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), makingthe
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 392-2758.
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 Univer-
sity community. (The Chemistry Department, IFAS, and
the Engineering and Industrial Experiment Station also
regularly 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 year with subjects drawn from anthropol-
ogy, economics, history, political science, sociology,






34 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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
University, it carried dual responsibility as the Florida
museum and the University museum.
The Museum is located at the corner of Museum Road
and Newell Drive in a modern facility 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
admission 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 ani-
mals; Anthropology, whose staff members are concerned
with the study of historic and prehistoric people and their
cultures; Interpretation, staffed by specialists in the inter-
pretation of knowledge through museum exhibit tech-
niques and education programs. Members of the scientific
and educational staff of the Museum hold dual appoint-
ments in appropriate teachingdepartments.Through these
appointments, they participate in both undergraduate and
graduate teaching programs.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is part of
the Department of Natural Sciences of the Florida Mu-
seum of Natural History. The combined Sarasota and
Gainesville holdings in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Mu-
seum of Entomology as the largest in the western hemi-
sphere and the premier Lepidoptera research center in the
world. The Allyn Museum publishes the Bulletin of the
Allyn 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 entomolo-
gists 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 admini-
stered by the School of Forest Resources and Conserva-
tion and the Florida Museum of Natural History, this area
supports several research activities centering on the ecol-
ogy of threatened species and the restoration of the native
longleaf pine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and disserta-
tion research projects consistent with the aims of the
preserve are actively encouraged.
The herbarium of the University of Florida is also a part
of the Museum. It contains over 150,000 specimens of
vascular plants and 170,000 specimens of nonvascular
plants. In addition, the herbarium operates a modern gas
chromatographic/mass spectrometer laboratory for the
study and identification of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's


holdings. Materials are constantly being added to the
collections both through gifts from friends and as a result
of research activities of the Museum staff. The archaeo-
logical and ethnological collections are noteworthy,
particularly in the aboriginal and Spanish colonial mate-
rial remains from the southeastern United States and the
Caribbean. There are extensive study collections of birds,
mammals, mollusks, reptiles, amphibians, fish, inverte-
brate and vertebrate fossils, plant fossils, and a bioacous-
tic archive consisting of original recordings of animal
sounds. Opportunities are provided for students, staff, and
visiting scientists to use the collections. Research and field
work are presently sponsored in the archaeological, pale-
ontological, and zoological fields. Students interested in
these specialties should make application to the appropri-
ate teaching department. Graduate assistantships are
available 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 forthe
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
scholars appointed by the President of the University,
determines policies of publication relating to the accep-
tance or rejection of manuscripts submitted not only by
University faculty members but by authors from through-
out the world.
Students and members of the faculty and staff are
cordially invited to visit the Press offices in the Seagle
Building, 408 West University Avenue, Suite 102.
The University of Florida is also host to University
Presses of Florida, which is located just off campus at 15
NW 15th Street.
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-
sity faculty members but it may also publish meritorious
works originating elsewhere and may republish out-of-
print works.
Each university's faculty publishing committee is inde-
pendently responsible for selecting works for publication
and distribution through thefacilities of University Presses
of Florida.
University Presses of Florida is a member of the Asso-
ciation of American University Presses.


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 African
and Asian Languages and Literatures, 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 America, and Southeast Asia.
There has also been a 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, 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 Research, the Center
for African Studies, the Center for International Student
and Faculty Exchanges, Program in Linguistics, Program
in African and Asian Languages and Literatures, Centerfor
Jewish Studies, and the Center for Latin American Studies.
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 African Studies, one of nine National
Resource Centers on Africa funded, in part, under Title VI
of the Higher Education Act, directs and coordinates
interdisciplinary instruction, research, and outreach re-
lated to Africa. In cooperation with participating depart-
ments throughout the University, the Center offers a
Certificate in African Studies at both the master's and
doctoral levels. The curriculum provides a broad founda-
tion for students preparing for teaching or other profes-
sional careers in which a knowledge of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships.-Students
admitted to the Graduate School in pursuit of degrees
offered by participating departments are eligible to com-
pete for graduate assistantships and Title VI Foreign
Language and Area Studies fellowships.
Extracurricular Activities.-The Center sponsors an
annual conference on an African topic, a weekly collo-
quium series-BARAZA-with invited speakers, and a
biweekly film series. The Carter Lectures on Africa are
held throughout the academic year. The Center also

directs an extensive out-reach program addressed to
public schools, community colleges, and universities
nationwide.
Library Resources.-The Center for African Studies
provides direct support for African library acquisitions to
meet the instructional and research needs of its faculty
and students. The Africana Collection numbers over
50,000 volumes. The Map Library contains 360,000 maps
and 165,000 serial photographs and satellite images and
is among the top five academic African map libraries in
the U.S.
African Art.-The Center regularly sponsors exhibits in
the Grinter Galleries. The University Gallery holds an
extensive collection of African sculpture and textiles. The
Rosenbloom Collection, 37 pieces of African sculpture, is
housed in the Florida Museum of Natural History. The
Department of Art holds approximately 5,000 African art
slides.
Graduate Certificate Program.-The Center for African
Studies, in cooperation with participating departments
offers a Certificate in African Studies in conjunction with
the master's and doctoral degrees.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Studies with
a master's degree are (a) at least 18 credits of course work
in a departmental major, 15 of which should relate to
Africa; (b) 9 credits of course work related to Africa and
distributed in at least two other departments; and (c) a

Africa; (d) knowledge of a language appropriate to the
area of specialization.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of
the Center should be addressed to the Director, Center for
African Studies, 470 Grinter Hall.
International Relations, a field of specialization lead-
ing to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, is offered through the
Department of Political Science. In addition to the M.A.
and Ph.D. with a major in political science which may
include a field in international relations, the University
offers an M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in political
science-international relations. The political
science-international relations program is designed to
provide professional education to those whose primary
interest is a career in foreign relations, whether in the
public or private sector. Requirements for the M.A. are an
interdisciplinary core of 12 credits and 27 credits in three
discipline-based tracks. Two of the three tracks must be in
political science; the third may be chosen from a wide
range of disciplines, including economics, journalism,
agriculture, statistics, computer sciences, or area studies.
For the Ph.D., the student must complete the require-
ments for the M.A. and then has the option of taking (1)
either three fields in political science or (2) two fields in
political science and a third in another discipline.
The Center for Latin American Studies coordinates
teaching, research, and service activities related to Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Studies. -The
master's degree offered through the Center is available in
two versions, both of which require a 15-credit major
concentration. The disciplinary concentration empha-
sizes training and research in area and language studies,
which develop a greater understandingof Latin America's






36 / GENERAL INFORMATION


cultures and societies. Students concentrate in one de-
partment, which maybe 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 for
technical and professional work related to Latin America
and the Caribbean.
Other requirements, common to both options, are (1)
12 credits of Latin American area and language courses in
two other departments, including one 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.
Although the M.A. in Latin American studies is a
terminal degree, many past recipients have entered the
Ph.D. programs in related disciplines from which they
prepare for university teaching careers. Other graduates
are employed in the foreign service, educational and
research institutions, international organizations, govern-
ment agencies, nonprofit corporations, and private com-
panies in the United States and Latin America.
Prerequisites for admission to the program are (1) a
baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or uni-
versity; (2) a grade average of B for all upper-division
undergraduate work; (3) a combined verbal-quantitative
score of 1000 on the Graduate Record Examination; (4) a
TOEFL score of 550for nonnative speakers of English; and
(5) a basic knowledge of either Spanish or Portuguese.

The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a con-
sortium of 52 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 University of 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 Carr Hall and 3028
McCarty Hall.
The Center for Tropical Agriculture, within the Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, seeks to stimulate
interest in research and curriculum related to the tropical
environment and its development.
Minor in Tropical Agriculture.-An 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
language 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
Agriculture), 1001 McCarty Hall.
The CTA is designed to prepare students for work in
both the biological and social aspects of tropical agricul-
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 credit hours. The
"typical" certificate program will consist of 12 to 24
credits. These hours may, with approval from regular
graduate committees, also count toward the M.S. or Ph.D.
Students from all academicbackgrounds 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 1+
or higher, or a comparable score on a similar examination
(if taken within two years of admission to the CTA pro-
gram) will fulfill the language requirement. Otherwise, an
internal language examination will be administered
sometime during the CTA program for each individual
student. While no specific second language is required,
Spanish, French, or Portugese is strongly suggested.
Experience in a foreign country is not a requisite for the
CTA. It is, however, strongly encouraged. A proposal,
filed at least one semester in advance of foreign work, is
required for credit under the CTA program.
Research.-The Center provides research grants to fac-
ulty members and their graduate students and assists in the
coordination of interdisciplinary research funded else-
where. Development assistance contracts in agriculture
and related fields frequently have research components.
Student Support.-Students within the College of Agri-
culture and the School of Forest Resources and Conserva-
tion pursuing a minor in tropical agriculture are eligible
for research grants awarded by the Center through aca-
demic departments.
Other Activities.-The Center seeks a broad dissemina-
tion of knowledge about tropical agriculture through the
sponsoring of conferences, short courses, and seminars
featuring leading authorities on the tropics; publication of
books, monographs, and proceedings; and through ac-
quisition of materials for the library and the data bank.
The Women in Agricultural Development Program of
the University of Florida is administered through the
Office of International Programs, IFAS. The program is a
nondegree program in which faculty from many disci-
plines in the social, biological and agricultural sciences
participate. The program supports international agricul-
tural development activities on the part of the Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences, encourages research
about women in agriculture, and provides research and
programming for women in agriculture in the State of
Florida.

has been the Director since 1981.
Fields of research at the WL include chemosensory and
visual physiology and biochemistry, synaptology, devel-
opmental and cell biology, toxicology, and peptide phar-
macology. Research animals range phylogeneticallyfrom
jellyfish to aquatic vertebrates. The common theme uni-
fying this diversity is a focus on communication between
cells and tissues, i.e., the interactions of cell membranes
with signaling molecules.
Research at the Whitney Laboratory attracts graduate
students and visiting scientists from across the U.S. and
from abroad. Students enroll in the graduate programs of
the Departments of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Neuros-
cience, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Physiology, or

The Fisher School of Accounting offers graduate work
leading to the Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) degree and
the Ph.D. degree with a major in business administration
and an accounting concentration. The M.Acc. degree
program offers specialization in each of the three areas of
auditing/financial accounting, accounting systems, and
taxation. A joint program leading to the Juris Doctor and
Master of Accounting degrees also is offered by the Fisher
School of Accounting and College of Law. Specific details
for the M.Acc., M.Acc./J.D., and Ph.D. programs will be
supplied by the Fisher School of Accounting upon re-
quest.
The M.Acc. and the Ph.D. accounting programs require
admission standards of at least the following: For the
M.Acc. program, a combined verbal and quantitative
score of 1100 on the Graduate Record Examination
(GRE), a combined GRE score of 1200 for the Ph.D.
program; or a score of 500 for the M.Acc. and 550 for the
Ph.D. program on the Graduate Management Admission
Test (GMAT). Admission to the M.Acc. or Ph.D. account-
ing graduate programs cannot be granted until scores are
received.
Information on minimum GPA standards for admission
to the M.Acc. program may be obtained from the office of
the Assistant Director. Foreign students must submit a
TOEFL test score of at least 550 and a satisfactory GMAT
or GRE score.
The recommended curriculum to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting is the 3/2 five-year program
with a joint awarding of the Bachelor of Science in
Accounting and Master of Accounting upon completion
of the 156-hour program. The entry point into the 3/2
program is the beginning of the senior year.
Students who have already completed an undergradu-
ate degree in accounting may enter the one-year M.Acc.
degree program which requires satisfactory completion of
34 hours of course work. A minimum of 20 credits must
be in graduate level courses; a minimum of 16 credits
must be in graduate level accounting courses. The re-
maining credits are selected from recommended elective
courses that vary by area of specialization. Students are
cautioned to seek early advisement since many graduate
courses are offered only once a year.
Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a core of
courses in mathematical methods, statistics, and eco-
nomic theory; one or two supporting fields selected by the
student; and .a major field of accounting. Students are
expected to acquire teaching experience as part of the
Ph.D. degree program. Grants-in-aid will be awarded for
this teaching. Foreign students must submit a Test of
Spoken English (TSE) test score of at least 220 along with
satisfactory GMAT/GRE and TOEFL scores in order to

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

The Department of Anthropology offers graduate work
leading to the Master of Arts (thesis or nonthesis option)
and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. 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) concen-
trate 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 an-
thropology 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 competency 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-
cations for admission into the graduate program. October
15 (for spring semester admissions) and February 15 (for
fall and summer semester admissions).

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
leadingto the firstprofessionaldegree, 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 January 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 January 15 for consideration for admission in
the following fall semester.
The graduate Professional Core I is taughtonly 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 significantamountof course work in one of several
specific tracks, including design, theory, presentation,
technology and management. The student's overall col-
lege experience, including undergraduate programs in
architecture and the two-year graduate program, is in-
tended to be a complete unit of professional education
leading toward practice in architecture or related profes-
sions.






66 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION


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 Master of 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-
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 creative work in architecture and related fields
if applicable; a scholarly statement of intent and objec-
tives; and three letters of recommendation from teachers
or employers. Students may enter this program in any
semester. Therefore, applications for graduate admission,
including transcripts, GRE scores, and TOEFL scores, if
necessary, must be 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.

In the doctoral program in the University of Florida Department of
Astronomy.

The Department of Astronomy offers graduate work in
astronomy and astrophysics leading to the degrees of
Master of Science and Doctor of 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;
solarsystem 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 containsone terminus of a 46-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, sensitometricandphotomi-
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
Departmentalso 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
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 buttake the qualifyingexami-
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 bywriting the Graduate Coordinator, 211 Bryant

The Departmentof Botanyoffers graduatework leading
to the degrees of Master of Science, Master of Agriculture,
Master of Science in Teaching, and Doctor of Philosophy.
The faculty encompass three general areas of expertise:
biochemistry and physiology, ecology and population
genetics, systematics and evolution. Specific areas of
specialization include anatomy/ morphology with em-
phasis on tropical ferns, aquatic and woody plants, and
orchids; bryology; development of seed plants, proto-
plast, cell and tissue culture; ecology and environmental
studies; ecological, cellular, and molecular genetics;
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; paleobotany; physiological
ecology; 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 theirgraduate programs. A reading knowl-
edge of a foreign language and credit for basic courses in
zoology and microbiology 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 new student will be required to
enroll in Advances in Botany taught by the faculty during
the fall semester of the first year.
There are, in addition tothe facilities of the Department
for graduate work, the following special resources that
maybe utilized in supportof graduate studenttraining 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, (6) the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology
Research, and (7) the Fairchild Tropical Garden for re-
search in the systematics, morphology and anatomy, and
economic botany of tropical plants.
To provide additional educational opportunities for our
graduate students in the form of botanical garden research
and training internship program, the Department of Bot-
any has entered into an arrangementwith 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 registerfor 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-
tails.

The Departmentoffers the Masterof Science and Doctor
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 mini-
mum a year of general chemistry which may include
qualitative analysis, one semesterof quantitative analysis,
one year of organic chemistry, one year of physical
chemistry, and one semesterof advanced inorganic chem-
istry. Additional courses in instrumental analysis, ad-
vanced physical and organic chemistry are desirable.

Deficiencies in anyof 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
Department in which they choose to specialize, CHM
6470, and two out-of-major-division courses or equiva-
lent examinations. Additional courses may be required by
the student's supervisory committee or major professor.
Foreign students whose native language is not English
must achieve a minimum score of 220 on the Test of
Spoken English. All others must meet the departmental
language requirement in German, French, or 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
in 4000 level or higher mathematics courses is required.
Candidates for the master's degree are required to
complete any two core courses. The Master of Science
degree in chemistry requires a thesis. The nonthesis
degree Master of Science in Teaching is offered with a
major in chemistry and requires a written paper of sub-
stantial length (30-50 pages) on an approved topic per-
taining to some phase of chemistry, under the course
CHM 6905.
