THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


INSTITUTIONAL PURPOSE

The University of Florida is a public, land-grant re-
search university, one of the most comprehensive in the
United States; it encompasses virtually all academic and
professional disciplines. It is the oldest and largest of
Florida's nine universities and a member of the American
Association of Universities. Its faculty and staff are
dedicated to the common pursuit of the University's
threefold mission: education, research, and service.
Education-undergraduate and graduate through the
doctorate is the fundamental purpose of the University.
Research and scholarship are integral to the education
process and to expanding humankind's understanding of
the natural world, the mind, and the senses. Service is the
University's obligation to share the benefits of its knowl-
edge for the public good.
These three interlocking elements span all of the Uni-
versity of Florida's academic disciplines and
multidisciplinary centers and represent the University's
obligation to serve the needs of Florida's citizens and the
nation by pursuing and disseminating new knowledge
while building upon the past. Every dimension of the
University bespeaks its commitment to a culturally and
internationally diverse intellectual environment in which
teaching, research, and service are fully integrated with its
interdisciplinary pursuits to meet the changing needs of
the global community.
The University of Florida is committed to providing the
knowledge, benefits, and services it produces with quality
and effectiveness. It aspires to further national and
international recognition for its initiatives and achieve-
ments in promoting human values and improving the
quality of life.




THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA:MISSION
AND GOALS

The University of Florida belongs to an ancient tradition
of great universities. We participate in an elaborate
conversation among scholars and students that extends
over space and time linking the experiences of Western
Europe with the traditions and histories of all cultures, that
explores the limits of the physical and biological uni-
verses, and that nurtures and prepares generations of
educated people to address the problems of our societies.
While the University of Florida recognizes no limits on its
intellectual boundaries, and our faculty and students
remain free to explore wherever the mind and imagina-
tion lead, we live in a real world whose constraints limit
whatwecando. Outof the conflict between our universal
intellectual aspirations and the limitations of our environ-
ment comes the definition of the University's goals.


EDUCATION

American colleges and universities share the funda-
mental educational mission of teaching students. The
undergraduate experience, based in the arts and sciences,
remains at the core of higher education in America. The
formation of educated people, the transformation of mind
through learning, and the launching of a lifetime of
intellectual growth: these goals remain central to every
university. The undergraduate foundation of American
higher education has grown more complex as the knowl-
edge we teach has grown more complex. Where once we
had a single track through the arts and sciences leading to
a degree we now have multiple tracks leading to many
degrees in arts and sciences a well as in a range of
professional schools. Yet even with the variety of degrees,
American university undergraduate education must rest
on the fundamental knowledge of the liberal arts and
sciences.
In our academic world we recognize two rather impre-
cisely defined categories of higher education: colleges
and universities. The traditional American college spe-
cializes in a carefully crafted four-year undergraduate
program, generally focused almost entirely on the arts and
sciences. Universities extend the range of this under-
graduate education to include advanced or graduate
study leading to the Ph.D. Most American universities
also include a variety of undergraduate and graduate
professional programs, master's degree programs, and the
like. The University of Florida shares these traditions. As
an American university, we have a major commitment to
undergraduate education as the foundation of our aca-
demic organization and we pursue graduate education for
the Ph.D. as well as many other graduate degrees in
professional fields.
We are, in addition, a major public, comprehensive,
land-grant, research university. Each of these adjectives
defines one of our characteristics, and through frequent
repetition, this description takes on the style of a ritual
incantation: rhythmic, reverent, and infrequently exam-
ined. What, then, does each of these key words means?



MAJOR

Here, at the head of the list, we find one of our most
important aspirations. We will be, we must be, and we are
a major university. We define ourselves in comparison
with the best universities we can find. We need not be the
absolutely unambiguously best, but we must be among
the best universities in the world. Exact ranking of the best
universities is a meaningless exercise, but most of us can
name 60 great universities. By whatever indicator of
quality we choose, our university should fall into this
group. If we define a group of universities who share our
adjectives (major, public, comprehensive, major need not




4 /GENERAL INFORMATION


be very precise). What matters is not the precision of the
measuring scale but the inclusion of our university in the
groups.


PUBLIC

We exist thanks to the commitment and investment of
the people of the State of Florida. Generations of tax
dollars have constructed the facilities we enjoy and have
paid the major portion of our operating budget. The
graduates of this institution, educated with tax dollars,
have provided the majority of our private funding. Our
state legislators created the conditions that permit our
faculty to educate our students, pursue their research,
conduct their clinical practice, and serve their statewide
constituencies. We exist, then, within the public sector,
responsible and responsive to the needs of the citizens of
our state. The obligations we assume as a public univer-
sity determine many of our characteristics.
We have many more undergraduate than graduate
students, we respond quickly to the needs of the state's
economy, we accommodate complex linkages with other
state universities and community colleges, and we oper-
ate in cooperative symbiosis with our state's media. We
also experience an often too-close interaction with the
political process. Private universities do not respond in
the same ways to these issues and have a different profile.
We, as a public university, must maintain a close, con-
tinuous, and effective communication with our many
publics.


COMPREHENSIVE

This adjective recognizes the universal reach of our
pursuit of knowledge. As a matter of principle, we
exclude no field from our purview. We believe that our
approach to knowledge and learning, to understanding
and wisdom, requires us to be ready to examine any field,
cultivate any discipline, and explore any topic that offers
insight or intellectual tools. Resource limits, human or
financial, may constrain us from cultivating one or an-
other academic subspecialty, but we accept, in principle,
no limit on our field of view. Even when we struggle with
budget problems and must reduce a program or miss an
intellectual opportunity, we do so only to meet the
practical constraints of our current environment. We
never relinquish the commitment to the holistic pursuitof
knowledge.


LAND-GRANT

Florida belongs to the set of American universities
whose mandate includes a commitment to the develop-


ment and transmission of practical knowledge. As one of
the land-grant universities identified by the Morrill Act of
1862, the University of Florida has a special focus on
agriculture and engineering and a mandate to deliver the
practical benefits of university knowledge to every county
in the state. In our university, the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences and the College of Engineering
respond to this definition most obviously, but over time,
the entire University has to come to recognize its commit-
ment to translating the benefit of abstract and theoretical
knowledge into the marketplace, where it can sustain the
economic growth that supports us all.
This commitment permeates the institutional culture
and defines us as one of some 72 such institutions in
America. The land-grant university is, of course, a pecu-
liarly American invention and captures one of the power-
ful cultural beliefs of our country: that knowledge passes
the test of quality by remaining vitally connected to
industry and commerce.



RESEARCH

Research defines a certain type of university. Our
faculty must dedicate themselves not only the bedrock
function of education, not only to the land-grant function
of service, but equally to the essential activity of research.
By research we mean the effort to expand our under-
standing of the natural world, the world of the mind, and
the world of the senses. We define research to include the
theoretical abstractions of the mathematician, the ex-
perimental discoveries of the geneticist, the insights of the
semiotician, the re-creations of the historian, or the analy-
sis of the anthropologist. We define research to capture
the business professor's analysis of economic organiza-
tion, the architect's design, and the musician's interpreta-
tion or the artist's special vision. Research by agronomists
improves crops, and research by engineers enhances
materials. Medical and clinical research cures and pre-
vents disease. The list of research fields continues as
endlessly as the intellectual concerns of our faculty and
the academic vision of our colleges.
University research, whatever the field, must be pub-
lished. The musician who never performs, the scientist
whose work never appears for review by colleagues, the
historian whose note cards never become a book may
have accomplished much, but their accomplishments
remain incomplete. When we say research, we mean
research and creative activity that contribute to the inter-
national public conversation about the advancement of
knowledge.
The University of Florida remains committed to deliv-
ering this mission with quality and effectiveness on behalf
of the citizens of the State of Florida and in support of the
continued enhancement of their quality of life.




THE GRADUATE SCHOOL / 5


THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY

The Graduate School consists of the dean, associate
dean, the Graduate Council, and the graduate faculty.
General policies and standards of the Graduate School
are established by the graduate faculty. Any policy change
must be approved by the graduate deans and the Graduate
Council. The Graduate School is responsible for the
enforcement of minimum general standards of graduate
work in the University and for the coordination of the
graduate programs of the various 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 ap-
pointed to temporary three-year terms to teach graduate-
level courses and direct master's theses; Graduate Studies
Faculty (GSF), who are on permanent appointments to
teach graduate-level courses and direct master's theses;
and Doctoral Research Faculty (DRF), who are appointed
in addition to direct doctoral dissertations.
No faculty member may perform any of these functions
without having been appointed to the graduate faculty,
though temporary exceptions may be made in unusual
circumstances.
In the beginning the organization of graduate study was
very informal. Control was in the hands of a faculty
committee which reported directly to the President. In
1910, however, James N. Anderson, Head of the Depart-
ment of Ancient Languages, was appointed Dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences and Director of Graduate
Work, and in 1930 he became the first Dean of the
Graduate School. He was succeeded upon his retirement
in 1938 by T. M. Simpson, Head of the Department of
Mathematics, who held the position until 1951. C. F.
Byers, Head of the Department of Biological Sciences in
the University College, served as Acting Dean from June
1951 until August 1952 when he was succeeded by L. E.
Grinter, who came from the Illinois Institute of Technol-
ogy, where he had been Vice President, Dean of the
Graduate School, and Research Professor. Upon becom-
ing Acting Vice President in 1969, Dr. Grinter was named
Dean Emeritus of the Graduate School. He was suc-
ceeded by Harold P. Hanson, who came to Florida from
the University of Texas, where he had served as Chairman
of the Department of Physics. In 1971, Dr. Hanson was
appointed Vice President for Academic Affairs. Alexander
G. Smith of the Departmentof Physics and Astronomy and
a former assistant dean of the Graduate School served as
Acting Dean until the appointment of Harry H. Sisler. Dr.
Sisler served as Chairman of the 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 appointment of Francis G.
Stehli in June 1980.
Dr. Stehli came to Florida from Case Western Reserve
University where he had served as Samuel St. John
Professor of Geology, Chairman of the Department of
Geology, and Dean of Science and Engineering. In Sep-
tember 1982, Dr. Stehli became Dean of the College of
Geosciences at the University of Oklahoma. Donald R.
Price, Associate Dean for Research and Professor of
Agricultural Engineering, served as Acting Dean from
January 1983 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 held a
dual appointment as Dean of the Graduate School and
Dean of International Studies and Programs from June
1985 through August 1991.
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 -were awarded on the Gainesville
campus in 1906. The first Master of Science was awarded
in 1908, with a major in entomology. The first programs
leading to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930, and the first
degrees were awarded in 1934, one with a major in
chemistry and the other with a major in pharmacy. The
first Ed.D. was awarded in 1948. Graduate study has had
a phenomenal growth at the University of Florida. In
1930, 33 degrees were awarded in 12 fields. In 1940, 66
degrees were awarded in 16 fields. In 1991-92, the total
number of graduate degrees awarded was 1,867 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; in 1989-90, there were 345;
in 1990-91, there were 358, and in 1991-92, there were
360.

ADMISSION TO THE

GRADUATE SCHOOL

Application for Admission.-Admission forms and infor-
mation concerning admission procedures may be obtained
from the Registrar and Admissions Office. Prospective
students are urged to apply for admission as early as
possible. For some departments deadlines for receipt of
admission applications may be earlier than those stated in
the current UniversityCalendar; prospective students should




8 /GENERAL INFORMATION


checkwith theappropriatedepartment. Applicationswhich
meet minimum standards are referred tothe graduate
selection committees of the various colleges and depart-
ments 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 acceptable
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 admis-
sion, scores at or above the national mean score on each
section. For some departments, and in more advanced
levels of graduate study, undergraduate averages or Gradu-
ate 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, recommended by the depart-
ment, and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is dependent
upon the presentation of a baccalaureate degree from an
accredited college or university. No application will be
considered unless the complete official transcript of all the
applicant's undergraduate and graduate work is in the
possession of the Registrar, and no transcript will be ac-
cepted as official unless it is received directly from the
registrarof the institution in which the work is done. Official
supplementary transcripts are required as soon as they are
available for any work completed after application for
admission has been made.
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 excel-
lent letters of recommendation from colleagues, satisfac-
tory performance in a specified number of graduate courses
taken as postbaccalaureate students, and/or practical expe-
rience in the discipline for a specified period of time.
The University encourages applications from qualified
applicants of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious,
and ethnic groups. The University does not discriminate on
the basis of handicap or age in admission or access to its
programs and activities. The Title IX Coordinator is Dr.
Jacquelyn D. Hart, 352 Tigert Hall, 392-6004.



ADMISSIONS EXAMINATIONS

Graduate Record Examination.-In addition to the Gen-
eral 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 Educa-
tional Testing Service, Princeton, NewJersey, 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 scoreson the GRE
General Test and a score of at least 550 on the TOEFL (Test
of English as a Foreign Language) with the following
exceptions:
1. Foreign students whose native tongue is English orwho
have studied at a United States college or university for one
yearor more need not submitTOEFL scores butmust 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 Admis-
sion Test before their applications for admission will be
considered.
Foreign students whose scores on the TOEFL and verbal
portion of the GRE are not indicative of adequate writing
skills are required to write a short essay for examination. If
the skills demonstrated in the essay are not acceptable for
pursuing graduate work, the examination will be used as a
diagnostic tool for placement in appropriate courses which
will not count toward a graduate degree.
Graduate students whose native language is not English
must submit satisfactory scores on the Test of Spoken
English (TSE) or the SPEAK Test to be eligible for teaching
assignments. Students who score below 220 on one of these
tests must take ENS 5501-Academic Spoken English I
before they may accept teaching assistantships. Students
who score between 220 and 249 must take ENS 5502-
Academic Spoken English II; this requirement must be met
while holding a teaching assignment.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing Ser-
vice, Princeton, NewJersey, for registration forms and other
information concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT, and GRE.
Students may register for the locally administered SPEAK
testwiththeAcademicSpoken English Office, 1349 Norman
Hall.




GENERAL REGULATIONS /9


STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

The University of Florida does not discriminate on the
basis of disability 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 byfederal laws and regulations. The designated
coordinator for compliance with Section 504 of the Reha-
bilitation Act of 1973, as amended,and the Americans with
Disabilities Act(ADA) is Kenneth J. Osfield, Assistant Dean
for Student Services, 202 Peabody Hall, 392-1261.
The Office of Student Services provides assistance for
students with disabilities. Services are varied dependingon
individual needs and include, but are not limited to, special
campus orientation, registration assistance, help in secur-
ing auxiliary learning aids, and assistance in general Uni-
versity activities. Students with disabilities are encouraged
to contact this office.


CONDITIONAL ADMISSION

Students who are not eligible for direct admission may be
granted conditional admission to the Graduate School.
Students may be granted conditional admission to defer
final admission decisions until requisite examination scores
or final grade records are available. Students may also be
granted conditional admission to ascertain their ability to
pursue graduate work atthe University of Florida if previous
grade records or Graduate Record Examination scores are
on the borderline of acceptability or when specific prereq-
uisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be noti-
fied by the department of the conditions under which they
are admitted. When these conditions have been satisfied,
the department must notify the student in writing, sending
a copy to the Graduate School. Eligible course work taken
while a student is in conditional status is applicable toward
a graduate degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission will
be barred from further registration.



POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS

Students who have received a bachelor's degree but have
not been admitted to the Graduate School are classified as
postbaccalaureate students (6-). Postbaccalaureate en-
rollment is offered for the following reasons: (1) to provide
a means for students not seeking a graduate degreeto enroll
in courses-included in this category would be students
who change their professional goals or wish to expand their
academic backgrounds and (2) to accommodate students
who do intendto enter a graduate program at some future
date, but need a substantial number of prerequisite courses.
Postbaccalaureate students mayenroll ingraduate courses
but the work taken will not normally be transferred to the
graduate record if the student is subsequently admitted to
the Graduate School. By petition in clearly justified cases
and in 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 postbac-
calaureateclassification to obtain teacher certification must
provide the college with a clear statement of certification
goals as a part of the requirements for admission. Interested
students should writeto 134 Norman Hall or call 392-0721
for further information.


FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE
STUDENTS

University of Florida faculty in tenured or tenure-accru-
ing lines, as designated by the Florida Administrative Code,
may not pursue graduate degrees from this institution.
Exceptions are made for the Florida Cooperative Extension
Service (IFAS) county personnel, the faculty of the 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 University of
Florida if approved by the graduate coordinator or the
supervisory committee chair and the Dean of the Graduate
School. Traveling scholars are normally limited to one term
on the campus of the host university. The deans of graduate
schools of the state universities are the coordinators of the
program, and interested students should contactthe Gradu-
ate Student Records Office, 288 Grinter Hall.

Cooperative Degree Programs.-In certain degree pro-
grams, faculty from other universities in the State University
System hold graduate faculty status at the University of
Florida. In those approved areas, the intellectual resources
of these graduate faculty 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 familiar with those sections of the Graduate
Catalogthat outline general regulations and requirements,
specific degree program requirements, and the offerings
and requirements of the major department. Ignorance of a




10 /GENERAL INFORMATION


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 con-
cerning courses and degree requirements, deficiencies if
any, and special regulations of the department. The dean of
the college in which the degree program is located or a
representative must approve all registrations. Once a super-
visory 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 public on any
student is the name; class, college, and major; dates of
attendance; degrees) earned; awards received; local and
permanent address; and telephone number.
In general, a present or former student has the right to
personally review his or her own educational records for
information and to ascertain the accuracy of these records.
Parents of dependent students, as defined by the Internal
Revenue Service, have these same rights. A photo I.D. or
other equivalent documentation or personal recognition by
the custodian of record will be required before access is
granted.


STUDENT CONDUCT

Graduate students are subject to the same rules of
behavior that govern undergraduates. The student conduct
code is printed in the Undergraduate Catalog.


The minimum study load for students not on assistantship
is three credits during Fall and Spring Semesters and two for
Summer.

COURSES AND CREDITS

Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be used as
any part of the graduate degree requirements, including the
requirement for a period of concentrated study. Under-
graduate courses (3000-4999), outside the major depart-
ment, may be used for support course work when taken as
part of an approved graduate program.
Courses numbered 5000 and above are limited to gradu-
ate students, with the exception described under Under-
graduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses num-
bered 7000 and above are designed primarily for advanced
graduate students.
No more than five hours each of 6910 (Supervised
Research) and 6940 (Supervised Teaching) may be taken by
a graduate student at the University of Florida.
A complete list of approved graduate courses appears in
the section of this Catalog entitled Fields of Instruction.
Departments reserve the right to decide which of these
graduate courses will be offered in a given semester and the
departments should be consulted concerning available
courses.
Generally speaking graduate courses may not be re-
peated for credit. However, there is no limit on courses
numbered 6971, 6972, 6979, 7979, and 7980. Other
courses that may be repeated for credit are designated by
max: immediately following the semester credit designa-
tion.
Graduate students must conform to the Registrar's dead-
line for drops. However, under certain circumstances,
substitutions of courses, if approved bythe 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.


STUDY LOADS


The University of Florida operates on a semester system
consisting of two 16-week periods and two 6-week summer
terms. A credit under the semester system is equal to 1.5
quarter credits.
Minimum registration for full-time graduate students,
including trainees and fellows, is 12 credits. The minimum
registration requirement is reduced for those students who
are graduate assistants. Guidelines for minimum registra-
tion for students on appointment are provided in the
Graduate Student Handbook and the Graduate 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 coordinatoror student's adviserfor 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 Univer-
sity facilities and faculty time.


GRADES


The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+,
B, C+, C, and S. Grades of C+ and C in courses below 5000
level are acceptable for credit toward graduate degrees if
the total program meets the B average requirement. In
5000-level courses and above, C+ and C grades count
toward a graduate degree if an equal number of credit hours
in courses numbered 5000 or higher have been earned with
grades of B+ and A, respectively. Grade points are not
designated for S and U grades; these grades are not used in
calculating the grade-point average.
Grades of S and U are the onlygrades awarded in courses
numbered 6910 (Supervised Research), 6940 (Supervised
Teaching), 6971 (Master's Research), 6972 (Engineer's
Research), 6973 (Individual Project), 7979 (Advanced Re-
search), 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 designated in the Graduate Catalog, no




GENERAL REGULATIONS / 11


course, graduate, undergraduate, or professional, may be
taken for an S/U grade.
Deferred Grade H.-The grade of H is nota substitute for
a grade of S, U, or I. Courses for which H grades are
appropriate mustbe so noted in their catalog descriptions,
and must be approved by the Graduate Curriculum Com-
mittee and the Graduate School. This grade may be used
only in special situations where the expected unit of work
may bedeveloped over a period of timegreaterthan 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 noquality points and lowerthe
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 approved by the depart-
ment and made as soon as the student is admitted to a
graduate program.


CONCURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS

A graduate student who wishes to pursue degrees in two
programs concurrently must have the written approval of
the chairperson of each department involved and the Dean
of the Graduate School. Any student interested in pursuing
concurrent degrees shou d discuss the proposed study with
the Graduate School's Student Records staff priorto apply-
ing 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); Chap-
ter 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 Admin-
istration, and the University certifies according to these
rules and regulations.
The Registrar's Office maintains students' academic
records. A progress report is sent to each student at the end
of the term indicating grades, cumulative hours, grade
points, etc.


UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP

Any graduate student may be denied further registration
in the University or in a graduate program should scholastic
performance or progress toward completion of the planned
program become unsatisfactory to the department, college,
or Dean of the Graduate School. Failure to maintain a B
average in all work attempted is, by definition, unsatisfac-
tory 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 de-
partment 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 gradu-
ate coordinator in the appropriate department for specific
information regarding any requirement of a foreign lan-
guage.
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 appli-
cations and payments of fees. The examination times and
dates are listed in the University Calendar. Educational
Testing Service (ETS) no longer administers this examina-
tion 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 ad-
ministration of the written and oral qualifying examinations
as well as the final oral examination for the defense of the
thesis, project, or dissertation. All members of the supervi-
sory 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 students
are to be held on the University of Florida campus. Excep-




12 /GENERAL INFORMATION


tions to this policy are made only for certain graduate
students whose examinations are administered at the Agri-
cultural Research and Educational Centers or on the cam-
puses of the universities in the State University System that
are approved for cooperative graduate degree programs.
These exceptions must be justified by individual petitionsto
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. Regu-
lar issues of Deadline Dates are available each semester.
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final
form, the student should obtain the Guide for Preparing
Dissertations and Theses from the Graduate School Edito-
rial Office and should request a records check in the
Graduate Records Office to make certain that all require-
ments for graduation have been fulfilled.
During the term in which the final examination is given
and during the term the degree is received, a student must
be registered for at least three hours that count toward his/
her graduate degree. Thesis students must be registered for
three hours of 6971 and doctoral students for three hours of
7980. Minimum registration for students taking their final
examinations orgraduating during the summerterms is two
hours of appropriate credit as outlined above. Students
must also apply for the degree at the beginning of the final
term.


AWARDING OF DEGREES

The Graduate School will authorize a candidate to be
awarded the degree appropriate to the course of study
under the following conditions (the details of which can be
found under the descriptions of the several degrees):
1. The candidate must have completed all course re-
quirements, including an internship or practicum if re-
quired, in the majorand minorfields, observing time limits,
limitations on transfer credit, on nonresident work, and on
level of course work.
2. The candidate must have a grade average of B or higher
in the major and in all work attempted in the graduate
program. All grades of I, H, and X must be resolved. Grades
of D and E require a written petition to the Dean of the
Graduate School.
3. The candidate must have satisfactorily completed all
required examinations, qualifying, comprehensive, and
final, and be recommended for the degree by the supervi-
sory committee, major department, and college.
4. The dissertation or, if required, thesis or equivalent

committee and accepted by the Graduate School. Recom-
mendationsforthe awarding of a degree include meeting all
academic and professional qualifications as judged by the
faculty of the appropriate department.
5. All requirements for the degree must be met while the
candidate is a registered graduate student.
Students who have been registered in the Graduate
School at least one semester of each successive calendar
year may graduate according to the curriculum under
which they entered.


ATTENDANCE AT COMMENCEMENT

Graduates who are to receive advanced degrees are
urged to attend Commencement in order to accept person-
ally the honor indicated by the appropriate hood. The
student may arrange through the University Bookstore for
the proper academic attire to be worn at Commencement.




REQUIREMENTS FOR

MASTER'S DEGREES

GENERAL REGULATIONS

The following regulations represent those of the Gradu-
ate School. Colleges and departments may have additional
regulations beyond those stated below. Unless otherwise
indicated in the following sections concerning master's
degrees, these general regulations apply to all master's
degree programs at the University.
Course Requirements.-Graduate credit is awarded for
courses numbered 5000 and above. The work in the major
field must be in courses numbered 5000 or above. For work
outside the major, courses numbered 3000 or above may
be taken provided they are part of an approved plan of
study. The program of course work for a master's degree
must be approved by the student's adviser, supervisory
committee, or faculty representative of the department. No
more than six credits from a previous master's degree
program may be applied toward a second master's degree.
These credits are applied only with the written approval of
the Dean of the Graduate School.
If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of work are
required in the minor field. Two six-credit minors may be
taken with departmental permission. Minor work must be
in a department other than the major; in special cases this
requirement may be modified, but only with the written
permission of the Dean of the Graduate School. A GPA of
3.0 is required for minor credit.
Degree Requirements.-Unless otherwise specified, for
any master's degree, the student must earn a minimum of 30
credits as a graduate student at the University of Florida, of
which no morethan two courses, totaling sixto eight hours,
earned with a grade of A, B+, or B may be transferred from
institutions approved for this purpose by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
Transfer of Credit.-Only graduate (5000-7999) level
work to the extent of two courses, totaling six to eight
semester hours, earned with a grade of A, B+, or B may be
transferred from an institution approved by the Graduate
School or from postbaccalaureate work at the University of
Florida. Credits transferred from other universities will be
applied toward meeting the degree requirements but the
grades earned will not be computed in the student's grade-
point average. Acceptance of transfer of credit requires
approval of the student's supervisory committee and the
Dean of the Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree must
be made during the student's first term of enrollment in the
Graduate School.
Nonresident or extension work taken at another institu-
tion may not be transferred to the University of Florida for




MASTER'S DEGREES /13


graduate credit. No courses taken by correspondence or as
partof a professional degree may be used toward a graduate
degree.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible afterthe
student has been admitted to the Graduate School but in no
case later than the second semester of graduate study.
Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs
are nominated by the representative department chairper-
son, approved by the college dean, and appointed by the
Dean of the Graduate School. Only members of the gradu-
ate faculty may be appointed to supervisory committees.
The chairperson must be from the major department. The
Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio member of all
supervisory committees.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a
thesis must consist of at least two members selected from
the graduate faculty. The supervisory committee for a
master's degree without a thesis may consistof one member
of the graduate faculty who advises the student and over-
sees the program. If a minor is designated, the committee
must include one graduate faculty member from the minor
department.
Language Requirements.-(1) The requirementofa read-
ing knowledge of a foreign language is at the discretion of
the department. The foreign language requirement varies
from department to department and the student should
check with the appropriate department for specific informa-
tion. (2) The ability to usethe English language correctly and
effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is
required of all candidates.
Examination.-A final comprehensive examination must
be passed by the candidate. This examination, held on
campus with all participants present, will cover at least the
candidate's field of concentration, and in no case may it be
scheduled earlier than the term preceding the semester in
which the degree is to be conferred.
Time Limitation.-All work, including transferred credit,
counted toward the master's degree must be completed
during the seven years immediately preceding the date on
which the degree is awarded.



MASTER OF ARTS AND MASTER OF
SCIENCE
The requirements for the Master of Arts and the Master of
Science degrees also apply to the following degrees, except
as they are individually described hereafter: Master of Arts
in Education, Master of Arts in Mass Communication,
Master of Science in Building Construction, Master of
Science in Health Science Education, Master of Science in
Pharmacy, Master of Science in Recreational Studies, and
Master of Science in Statistics.
Course Requirements.-The minimum course work re-
quired for a master's degree with thesis is 30 credits
including up to 6 hours of the research course numbered
6971. All students seeking a master's degree with thesis
must register for an appropriate number of hours in 6971.
The Graduate School requirement for a Master of Arts or
Master of Science taken with a nonthesis option is at least
32 letter-graded credits. Many departments require more. S/
U graded courses do not count in meeting the minimum
credit requirements for a nonthesis option. Students pursu-
ing the nonthesis option may not use the course numbered
6971.


For both nonthesis option and thesis programs, at least
half the required credits, exclusive of 6971, must be in a
field of study designated the major. One or two minors of
at least six credits each may be taken, but a minor is not
required by the Graduate School. Minor work must be in a
department other than the major. The work in the major
field must be in courses numbered 5000 or above. Forwork
outside the major, courses numbered 3000 or above may
be taken.
Engineering students, working at off-campus centers,
who are pursuing a nonthesis option Master of Science
degree, must take half the course work from full-time
University of Florida faculty members and are required to
pass a comprehensive written examination administered
on the University of Florida campus by an examining
committee recommended by the Dean of the College of
Engineering and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
School.
Thesis.-Candidates for the master's degree with thesis
must prepare and present theses (or equivalent in creative
work) acceptable to their supervisory committees and the
Graduate School. The candidate should consult the Gradu-
ate School Editorial Office for instructions concerning the
form of the thesis. The University Calendar specifies final
dates for submitting the original copy of the thesis to the
Graduate School. The college copy should also be submit-
ted to the college or to the l library by the specified date. After
the thesis is accepted, these two copies will be permanently
bound and deposited in the University Libraries.
Change from Thesis to Nonthesis Option.-A student
who wishes to change from the thesis to the nonthesis
option for the master's degree must obtain the permission of
the supervisory committee to make such a change. This
permission must be forwarded to the Graduate School at
least one full semester prior to the intended date of gradu-
ation. The candidate must meet all the requirements of the
nonthesis option as specified above. A maximum of three
credits earned with a grade of S in 6971 (Master's Research)
can be counted toward the degree requirements only if
converted to credit as A, B+, or B in Individual Work. The
supervisory committee must indicate that the work was
productive in and by itself and warrants credit as a special
problem or special topic course.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible afterthe
student has been admitted to the Graduate School but in no
case later than the end of the second semester of study. The
duties of the supervisory committee are to advise the
student, to checkon the student's qualifications and progress,
to supervisethe preparation of the thesis, and to conductthe
final examination.
Final Comprehensive Examination.-The student who
elects the nonthesis option must pass a comprehensive
written examination on the major field of study and on the
minor if a minor is designated. This comprehensive exami-
nation must be taken within six months of the date the
degree is to be awarded.
Final Examination.-When the student's course work is
substantially completed, and the thesis is in final form, the
supervisory committee is required to examine the student
orally or in writing on (1) the thesis, (2) the major subjects,
(3) the minor or minors, and (4) matters of a general nature
pertaining to the field of study. A written announcement of
the examination must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate
School.
At least three faculty members and the candidate must be
present at the final examination. At the time of the exami-




14 /GENERAL INFORMATION


nation, all committee members should sign the signature
pages and the Final Examination Report. These may be
retained by the supervisory chair until acceptable comple-
tion of corrections. This examination may not be scheduled
earlier than the semester preceding the term the degree is to
be conferred.


MASTER OF ARTS IN TEACHING AND
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TEACHING

These degrees are designed for graduate students who
intend to teach in junior colleges. Requirements for admis-
sion are the same as those for the regular M.A. and M.S.
degrees in the various colleges, and programs leading to the
M.A.T. and M.S.T. may, with proper approval, be incorpo-
rated into programs leading to the Ph.D.
The requirements for the degrees are as follows:
1. A reading knowledge of one foreign language if
required by the student's major department.
2. Satisfactory completion of at least 36 credits while
registered as a graduate student, with work distributed as
follows:
a. At least 18 credits in the major (all work in the
major field must be 5000 level or higher) and 6
credits in the minor.
b. Six credits in a departmental internship in teach-
ing (6943-Internship in CollegeTeaching). Three
years of successful teaching experience in a state
certified school may be substituted for the intern-
ship requirement, and credits thus made avail-
able may be used for further work in the major,
the minor, or in education.
c. At least one course in each of the following: social
foundations of education, psychological founda-
tions of education, and community college cur-
riculum. These courses may be used to comprise
a minor.
3. Off-Campus Work: A minimum of 8-16 credits (at the
department's discretion), including registration for at least
6 credit hours in a single semester, must be earned on the
Gainesville campus. Beyond that, credits, including those
at the 5000 and 6000 level, earned in courses offered off-
campus by the University of Florida which have been
approved by the Graduate School shall be accepted, pro-
vided they are appropriate to the student's degree program
as determined by the supervisory committee.
4. At the completion of this degree, the student, for
certification purposes, must present from the undergradu-
ate and graduate degree programs no fewer than 36 semes-
ter credits in the major field.
5. A final comprehensive examination, either written,
oral, or both, must be passed by the candidate. This
examination, taken on campus, will cover the field of
concentration and the minor.


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. pro-
gram 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 satisfactory 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 undergraduate
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 belowthe graduate level must have the approval of
the major adviser. A final comprehensive examination,
taken on campus, is required of all students. Additional
requirements are listed under the General Regulations
section for all master's degrees.
M.Acc./J.D. Program.-This joint program culminates
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 accounting 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 (J.D.) and the Fisher School of Accounting (M. Acc.).
Students must be admitted to the two programs simulta-
neously.




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
Master of Science degree without thesis except that 12
credits of graduate courses in a department constitute a
major. Credit toward the degree for courses taken through
the Division of Continuing Education is limited to 24
credits. The student's supervisory committee must consist
of at least two members of the graduate faculty. A compre-
hensive written qualifying examination, given prior to the
midpoint of the term of graduation, and a final oral exami-
nation are required. Both examinations must be given on
campus with all participants present.



MASTER OF AGRICULTURAL
MANAGEMENT AND RESOURCE
DEVELOPMENT (M.A.M.R.D.)

The M.A.M.R.D. degree program provides an opportu-
nity for graduate study for students who plan to enter
management careers in business firms or government agen-
cies; it is not recommended for those who plan careers in
research and university teaching. Areas of concentration




MASTER'S DEGREES /15


include farm management, agribusiness management, and
natural resources and environmental management.
The general requirements are the same as those for the
Master of Science degree without thesis except that 12
credits of graduate courses in food and resource economics
constitute a major. The supervisory committee and exami-
nation requirements are the same as those for the Master of
Agriculture degree.

MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE

The degree of Master of Architecture is an accredited
professional degree meeting the requirements of the Na-
tional Architectural Accrediting Board, for those students
who wish to qualify for registration and practice as archi-
tects. Candidates are admitted from architectural, related
and unrelated undergraduate backgrounds; professional
experience is encouraged but not required.
The general requirements are the same as those for the
Master of Arts degrees with thesis except that the minimum
registration required is 52 credits, including no more than
6 credits in ARC 6971 or 6979. Course sequences in design
history and theory, materials and methods, structures,
technology, and practice must be completed. Students are
encouraged to propose individual programs of study (out-
side of required courses), and interdisciplinary work is
encouraged.


MASTER OF ARTS IN URBAN AND
REGIONAL PLANNING

The degree of Master of Arts in Urban and Regional
Planning is a professional degree for students who wish to
practice urban and regional planning and meet the educa-
tional requirements for the American Institute of Certified
Planners. The program is accredited by the Planning Ac-
creditation Board.
The general requirements are the same as those for other
Master of Arts degrees with thesis except that the minimum
registration required is 52 credits including no more than 6
credits in URP 6971. In some study areas, with permission
from the departmental graduate faculty, a terminal project
requiring 6 credits may be elected in lieu of a thesis.
M .A.U.R.P./J.D. Joint Program.-A four-year program
leading to a Juris Doctor and a Master of Arts in Urban and
Regional Planning is offered under the joint auspices of the
College of Law and the College of Architecture, Depart-
ment of Urban and Regional Planning. The program pro-
vides students interested in the legal problems of urban and
regional planning with an opportunity to blend law studies
with relevant course work in the planning curriculum. The
students receive both degrees at the end of a four-year
course of study whereas separate programs would require
five years. Students must take the GRE and the LSAT prior
to admission, must be admitted to the two programs simul-
taneously, and must complete the first year of law school
course work before comingling law and planning courses.
A thesis is required upon completion of the course work.
Interested students should apply to both the Holland Law
Center and the Graduate School, noting on the application
the joint nature of their admission requests. Further informa-
tion on the program is available from the Holland Law
Center and from the Department of Urban and Regional
Planning.


MASTER OF BUILDING
CONSTRUCTION

The degree of Master of Building Construction is de-
signed for those students who wish to pursue advanced
work in management of construction, construction tech-
niques, and research problems in the construction field.
The general requirements are the same as those for

MASTER OF BUSINESS
ADMINISTRATION

The requirements for the Master of Business Administra-
tion degree are designed to give students (1) the conceptual
knowledge for understanding the functions and behaviors
common to all organizations, and (2) the analytical, prob-
lem-solving, and decision-making skills essential for effec-
tive management. The emphasis is upon developing the
student's capacities and skills for business decision making.
The curriculum is structured so that students may extend
their knowledge in a specialized field by selecting an
approved concentration. Included in these concentrations
are computer and information sciences, decision and infor-
mation sciences, economics, finance, health and hospital
administration, management, marketing, and real estate.
Several areas of specialization are also available. These
include agribusiness, manufacturing management, and
entrepreneurship. Students may also expand their knowl-
edge in several areas instead of specializing and pursue a
generalist option by selecting approved courses from more
than one field of business administration.
Admission.-Applicantsforadmission mustsubmitscores
from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) as
well as transcripts for all previous academic work. Signifi-
cant work experience and personal interviews are ex-
pected. Applicants whose native language is not English are
required to submit, in addition, scores on the Testof English
as a Foreign Language.
A heterogeneous student body is seen as an important
asset of the program. Accordingly the undergraduate back-
ground of students includes a wide range of disciplines. The
curriculum assumes no previous academic work in mana-
gerial disciplines or business administration. Enrolling
students find introductory course work in statistics, calcu-
lus, and financial accounting beneficial.
Students are admitted in the fall semester only. Applica-
tions should be made as early as possible during the
preceding academic year; no later than April 1. For more

ment may become candidates for the Master of Science
degree, provided they meet departmental requirements for




MASTER'S DEGREES /17


admission. The general intent in making this distinction is
to encourage those who are professionally oriented to seek
the Master of Engineering degree, and those who are more
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 variant of the Master of Engineering degree.
The M.C.E. is oriented specifically to the design and pro-
fessional practice in civil engineering. The degree require-
ments include a minimum number of hours of design and
professional practice instruction at the graduate level, six
months' full-time civil engineering related experience or its
equivalent obtained after the student has achieved junior
status, and completion of the 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 Engi-
neering.
Work Required.-The minimum course work required
for the master's degree with thesis is 30 credits which may
include up to 6 credits of research 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. Environmental Engineering Sciences re-
quires a minimum of 34 credits of course work for degrees
without a thesis. At least 50% of the required 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 autho-
rized by the supervisory committee or program adviser.
Courses numbered 3000 and above may be taken for the
minor.
Degree Credit.-In order to qualify for course work
toward the Master of Engineering degree, a student must
first be admitted to the Graduate School at the University of
Florida. The amount of course work toward this degree that
may be taken at an off-campus center will depend upon the
student's individual program and the courses provided
through the center.
Examinations.-A student seeking the Master of Engi-
neering degree with or without thesis is required to pass a
comprehensive oral and/or written examination, admini-
stered 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 an examining 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 committee. If a
minor is taken, another member selected from the Graduate
Studies Faculty must be chosen from outside the major
department to represent the student's minor.
The requirement for an on-campus comprehensive writ-
ten 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 MasterofArts andMaster
of Science.

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

degree in the College of Education is described under
Requirements for the Ph.D.
In cooperation with the Graduate Studies Office, College
of Education, programs leading to these degrees are admin-
istered through the individual departments in the College of
Education. It is the responsibility of the department's chair-
person to carry out the policies of the Graduate School and
the graduate committee of the College of Education. More
specific information about the various programs and de-
partmental requirements may be obtained from the indi-
vidual departments. General information or assistance is
available through the Office of Student Services in Educa-
tion, Room 134, Norman Hall.
Admission to the Ed.S., Ed.D., and Ph.D. programs is
open only to persons who have met the following require-
ments:
1. Achieved at least the minimum upper-division under-
graduate grade average and verbal-quantitative total score
on the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination
necessary for admission to the Graduate School, University
of Florida.
2. Provided evidence of good scholarship for previous
graduate work (a 3.5 grade-point average or above, as
computed by the University of Florida, will be considered
satisfactory).
3. Successfully completed 36 credits of professional
course work in education. Applicants for admission to
advanced degree programs in the College of Education who
meet all the requirements except for successfully complet-
ing 36 credits of professional education courses may be
given provisional admission and full admission when they
have completed the required 36 credits.
4. Presented a record of successful professional experi-
ence, the appropriateness of which will be determined by
the instructional department passing on the applicant's
qualifications for admission. In some instances, depart-
ments may admit students with the understanding that
further experience may be required before the student will
be recommended for the degree.
The judgment about admission of an individual is made
by the major department, the College of Education, and the
Graduate School, University of Florida.


SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION

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


Florida. All work for the degree, including transferred
credit, must be completed during the seven years immedi-
ately preceding the date on which the degree is awarded.
The Ed.S. degree is awarded at the completion of a
planned program with a minimum of 72 credits beyond the
bachelor's degree or a minimum of 36 credits beyond the
master's degree. All credits accepted for the program must
contribute to the unity and the stated objective of the total
program. Students are tested (in no case earlier than six
months prior to receipt of degree) in both a written and an
oral examination, given on campus by a committee se-
lected by the department chairperson. A thesis is not
required; however, each program will include continuing
attention to a research component relevant to the profes-
sional role for which the student is preparing.
Students who enter the program with an appropriate
master's degree from another accredited institution must
complete a minimum of 36 credits of post-master's study to
satisfy the following requirements.
1. Twenty-one credits in graduate level courses.
2. At least 12 credits in graduate level professional
education courses.
3. Registration on the Gainesville campus of the Univer-
sity of Florida for at least six credits in a single semester.
Twelve credits for appropriate courses offered off-cam-
pus by the University of Florida may be transferred to the
program. Six credits may be transferred from another
institution of the State University System or from any
institution offering a doctoral degree; however, credittrans-
ferred from another institution reduces proportionately the
credit transferred from University of Florida off-campus
courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's degree
only must, during the 72-credit program, satisfy these
requirements in addition to the requirements of the Master
of Education degree or its equivalent.


DOCTOR OF EDUCATION

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




22 /GENERAL INFORMATION


at least 12 credits of course work, the other at least 5 credits.
At least 12 credits counted in a minor must be at the 5000
level or higher.
Courses in physical education approved by the College
of Health and Human Performance and the Graduate
School as subject matter or content courses may be used in
the cognate work or as a minor.
In lieu of a minor or minors, the candidate may present
a suitable program of no fewer than 15 credits of cognate
work in at least two departments. If two fields are included,
there shall be nofewerthan fivecredits in each field. If three
or more fields are included, the five credit requirement for
each field does not apply. This program must have the
approval of the student's supervisory committee. The Col-
lege of Education faculty will expect the candidate to be
prepared to answer questions, at the time of the oral
examination, in any of the areas chosen.
Admission to Candidacy.-Admission to candidacy for
the degree of Doctor of Education requires successful
completion of the qualifying examinations and approval of
a dissertation topic. Recommendation to the Graduate
School for admission to candidacy is based on the action of
the supervisory committee. Application for admission to
candidacy should be made as soon as the qualifying
examination has been passed and a dissertation topic has
been approved by the student's supervisory committee.
Qualifying Examination.-The applicant is recommended
for the qualifying examination by the supervisory commit-
tee after completion of sufficient course work.
Theexamination, administered on campus bythe student's
major department, consists of (1) a general section, (2) a
field of specialization section, (3) examination in the minor
or minors, where involved, and (4) an oral examination
conducted by the applicant's supervisory committee.
At least five faculty must be presentforthe oral portion of
the examination; however, only members of the supervi-
sory committee are required to sign the Admission to
Candidacy form.
If the student fails the qualifying examination, a re-
examination will not be given unless recommended for
special reasons by the supervisory committee and ap-
proved by the Graduate School. At least one semester of
additional preparation is considered essential before re-
examination.
Research Preparation Requirement.-EDF 7486 (Meth-
ods of Educational Research) or its equivalent, for which a
basic course in statistics is a prerequisite, and one other
approved course are minimum requirements in all pro-
grams. Additional requirements vary with the department
and with the student's plans for doctoral research.
For information relating to Concentrated Period ofStudy,
the Supervisory Committee, Time Lapse, the Dissertation,
and the Final Examination, the student is referred to the
material presented under the heading Requirements for the
Ph.D. These statements are applicable to both degrees.



REQUIREMENTS FOR

THE PH.D.

Doctoral study consists of the independent mastery of a
field of knowledge and the successful pursuit of research.
Consequently, doctoral programs are more flexible and
varied than those leading to other graduate degrees. The


Graduate Council does not specify what courses will be
required for the Ph.D. degree. The general requirement is
that the program should be unified in relation to a clear
objective, that it should have the considered approval of the
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. If a student holds
a master's degree in a discipline different from the doctoral
program, the master's work will not be counted in the
program unless the department petitions the Dean of the
Graduate School. All master's degrees counted in the 90-
hour minimum must have been earned in the last seven
years. No more than 30 hours of a master's degree from
another institution will be transferred to a doctoral program.
All courses beyond the master's degree taken at another
university, to be applied to the Ph.D. degree, must be taken
at an institution offering the doctoral degree and must be
approved for graduate credit by the Graduate School of the
University of Florida. The student's supervisory committee
has the responsibility for recommending individual courses
of study for each doctoral student.
M ajor.-The student working for the Ph.D. must electto
do the major work in a department or interdisciplinary unit
specifically approved for the offering of doctoral courses
and the supervision of dissertations. These departments are
listed under Graduate Programs.
Minor.-With the approval of the supervisory commit-
tee, the student may choose one or more minor fields.
Minor work may be completed in any department, other
than the major department, approved for master's or doc-
toral degree programs as listed in this Catalog. The collec-
tive grade for courses included in a minor must be B or
higher.
If one minor is chosen, the representative of the minor
department on the supervisory committee shall suggest
from 12 to 24 credits (at least 12 credits must be atthe 5000
level or higher) as preparation for a qualifying examination.
A part of this background may have been acquired in the
master's program. If two minors are chosen, each must
include at least eight credits. Competence in the minor area
may be demonstrated through a written examination con-
ducted by the minor department or through the oral quali-
fying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not
be restricted to the courses of onedepartment, provided that
the minor has a clearly stated objective and that the
combination of courses representing the minor shall be
approved by the Graduate School. This procedure is not
required for a departmental minor.




LEAVE OF ABSENCE

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




PH.D. DEGREE /23


SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE

Supervisory committees are nominated by the depart-
ment chairperson, approved by the dean of the college
concerned, and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
School. The committee should be appointed as soon as
possible after the student has begun doctoral work and in
general no later than the end of the second semester of
equivalent full-time study. The Dean of the Graduate
School is an ex-officio member of all supervisory commit-
tees and should be notified in writing well in advance of all
examinations conducted by such committees.
Duties and Responsibilities.-Duties of the supervisory
committee follow:
1. To inform the student of all regulations governing the
degree sought. It should be noted, however, that this does
not absolve the student from the responsibility of inform-
ing himself/herself concerning these regulations. (See
Student Responsibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointment to review the
qualifications of the student and to discuss and approve a
program of study.
3. To meet to discuss and approve the proposed disser-
tation project and the plans for carrying it out.
4. To give the student a yearly letter of evaluation in
addition to the S/U grades awarded for the research courses
7979 and 7980. The chair should write this letter after
consultation with the supervisory committee.
5. To conduct the qualifying examination or, in those
cases where the examination is administered by the depart-
ment, to take part in it. In either event, no fewer than five
faculty members shall be present with the student for the
oral portion of the examination. This examination must be
given on campus.
6. To meet when the work on the dissertation is at least
one-half completed to review procedure, progress, and
expected results and to make suggestions for completion.
7. To meeton campus when the dissertation is completed
and conduct the final oral examination to assure that the
dissertation is a piece of original research and a contribu-
tion to knowledge. No fewer than five faculty members,
including all members of the supervisory committee, plus
the graduate dean's representative, shall be presentwith the
candidate for this examination. Only members of the
official supervisory committee may sign the dissertation.
The dissertation must be approved unanimously by the
official supervisory committee.
Membership.-The supervisory committee for a candi-
date for the doctoral degree shall consist of no fewer than
four members selected from the graduate faculty. At least
two members, including the chairperson, will be from the
department recommending the degree, and at least one
member will be drawn from a different educational disci-
pline. The chairperson and at least one additional member
of the committee must be members of the Doctoral
Research Faculty of the University of Florida.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee will
include at least one person selected from the graduate
faculty from outside the discipline of the major for the
purpose of representing the student's minor. In the event
that the student elects more than one minor, each minor
area must be represented on the supervisory committee.
The Graduate Council desires each supervisory commit-
tee to function as a University committee, as contrasted
with a departmental committee, in order to bring Univer-
sity-wide standards to bear upon the various doctoral
degrees.


A cochairperson may be appointed to serve during a
planned absence of the chairperson.



LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT

Any foreign language requirement, or a substitute there-
for, for the Ph.D. is established by the major department
with approval of the college. The student should check with
the graduate coordinator of the appropriate department for
specific information. The foreign language departments
offer special classes for graduate students who are begin-
ning the study of a language. See the current Schedule of
Courses for the languages in which this assistance is avail-
able.
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) 32 semester hours in no more than four
semesters within a period of two calendar years on the
University of Florida campus. Courses at the 1000 or 2000
level will not be counted toward the requirement for
concentrated study.
Candidates in the College of Agriculture may do their
research at certain branch stations of the University of
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
taken during the third semester of graduate study beyond
the bachelor's degree.
The student must be registered in the term in which the
qualifying examination is given.
The examination, prepared and evaluated by the full
supervisory committee or the major and minor depart-
ments, is both written and oral and covers the major and
minor subjects. At least five faculty members, including the
supervisory committee, must be present with the student at
the oral portion. The supervisory committee has the respon-
sibility at this time of deciding whether the student is
qualified to continue work toward a Ph.D. degree.
Ifa studentfailsthequalifying examination, theGraduate
School must be notified. A re-examination may be re-
quested, but it must be recommended by the supervisory
committee and approved by the Graduate School. At least
one semester of additional preparation is considered essen-
tial before re-examination.
Time Lapse.-Between the oral portion of the qualifying
examination and the date of the degree there must be a
minimum of two semesters. The semester in which the




24 /GENERAL INFORMATION


qualifying examination is passed is counted, provided that
the examination occurs before the midpoint of the term.



ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY


A graduate student does not become a candidate for the
Ph.D. degree until granted formal admission to candidacy.
Such admission requires the approval of the student's
supervisory committee, the department chairperson, the
college dean, and the Dean of the Graduate School. The
approval must be based on (1) the academic record of the
student, (2) the opinion of the supervisory committee
concerning overall fitness for candidacy, (3) an approved
dissertation topic, and (4) a qualifying examination as
described above. Application for admission to candidacy
should be made as soon as the qualifying examination has
been passed and a dissertation topic has been approved by
the student's supervisory committee. A student may regis-
ter for 7980 (Research for Dissertation) in the term he or she
is admitted to candidacy for a doctoral degree.



DISSERTATION

Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to
prepare and present a dissertation that shows independent
investigation and is acceptable in form and content to the
supervisory committee and to the Graduate School. Disser-
tations must bewritten in English. The Dean of the Graduate
School may approve exceptionsto this rule on an individual
basis for students majoring in German or Romance lan-
guages and literatures.
Since all doctoral dissertations will be published by
microfilm, it is necessary that the work be of publishable
quality and that it be in a form suitable for publication.
The original copy of the dissertation must be presented to
the Dean of the Graduate School on or before the date
specified in the University Calendar. It must contain an
abstract and be accompanied by four unpaged separate
copies of the abstract, a letter of transmittal from the
supervisory chairperson, and all doctoral forms. After cor-
rections have been made, and no later than the specified
formal submission date, the fully signed copy of the disser-
tation, together with the signed Final Examination Report,
should be returned to the Graduate School. The original
copy of the dissertation is sent by the Graduate School to the
Library for microfilming and hardbinding. A second copy,
reproduced on required thesis paper, should be delivered
to the Library for hardbinding. The supervisory chairperson
and the candidate will each need a copy and, if required,
another should also be provided for the departmental
library.
Publication of Dissertation.-All candidatesforthe Ph.D.
and Ed.D. degrees are required to pay the sum of $45 to
University Financial Services, S113 Criser Hall, for micro-
filming their dissertations, and to sign an agreement autho-
rizing publication by microfilm.
Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copyright the
microfilmed dissertation for a charge of $35 payable by a
certified or cashier's check or money order to University
Microfilms attached to the signed microfilm agreement


form. To assure receipt of the valuable Copyright Registra-
tion Certificate, candidates must give permanent addresses
through which they can always be reached.



GUIDELINES FOR RESTRICTION ON
RELEASE OF DISSERTATIONS

Research performed at the University can effectively
contribute to the education of our students and to the body
of knowledge that is our heritage only if the results of the
research are published freely and openly. Conflicts can
develop when it is in the interests of sponsors of university
research to restrict such publication. When such conflicts
arise, the University must decide what compromises it is
willing to accept, taking into account the relevant circum-
stances. TheAAU guidelines contained herein were adopted
by the University of Florida Graduate Council on January
19,1989.
1. The recommendations of sponsors, which result from
prepublication reviews of research results and which

affect subsequent publication of these results, should be
considered advisory rather than mandatory.
2. The maximum delay in publication allowed for pre-
reviews should not exceed three months.
3. There should be no additional delays in publication
beyond the pre-review. Timely submission of any patent
or copyright applications should be the result of effective
communication between investigators and sponsorsthroughout
the course of the project.
4. There should be no restriction on participation in
nonclassified sponsored research programs on the basis
of citizenship.
5. Students should not be delayed in the final defense of
their dissertations by agreements involving publication
delays.



FINAL EXAMINATION

After submission of the dissertation and the completion
of all other prescribed work for the degree, but no earlier
than the term preceding the semester in which the degree
is conferred, the candidate will be given a final examina-
tion, oral or written or both, by the supervisory committee
meeting on campus. An announcement of the scheduled
examination and an abstract must be sent to the Dean of the
Graduate School 10 working days before the selected date.
At least five faculty members, including all supervisory
committee members, must be present with the candidate at
the oral portion of this examination. The Dean of the
Graduate School will be represented by a member of the
Doctoral Research Faculty. At the time of the defense all
committee members should sign the signature pages and all
committee and attending faculty members should sign the
Final Examination Report. These may be retained by the
supervisory chairman until acceptable completion of cor-
rections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adher-
ence to all Graduate School regulations outlined above
complete the requirements for the degree.




EXPENSES /25


Time Limitation.-All work for the doctorate must be
completed within five calendar years after the qualifying
examination, or this examination must be repeated.

CERTIFICATION

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





EXPENSES

APPLICATION FEE

Each application for admission to the University must be
accompanied by an application fee of $20. Application fees
are nonrefundable. Further instructions will be found in the
Admissions section of this Catalog.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS-
FLORIDA OR NON-FLORIDA

(Section 6C-7.005 Florida Administrative Code.)
(1) For the purpose of assessing registration and tuition
fees, a student shall be classified as a resident or a nonresi-
dent. 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 forthe in-
state tuition rate.
(a) To be classified as a "resident for tuition purposes,"
a person, or, if a dependent child, the child's parent or
parents or legal guardian, shall have established legal
residence in Florida and shall have maintained physical
presence in Florida for at least twelve (12) months immedi-
ately prior to the first day of classes of the term for which
Florida residency is sought. A dependent child is a person
who may be claimed by his or her parent or guardian 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 resi-
denceof such individual's parentor guardian shall be prima
facie evidence of the individual's legal residence in accor-
dance with the provisions of Section 240.1201(4), Florida
Statutes. Prima facie evidence may be reinforced or rebut-
ted by evidence of residency, age, and the general circum-
stances of the individual in accordance with the provisions
of Rule 6C-7.005(2).
(c) In making domiciliary determinations related to the
classification of persons as residents or nonresidents for


tuition purposes, thedomicileofa married person, irrespec-
tive of sex, shall be determined in accordance with the
provisions of Section 240.1201(5), Florida Statutes.
(d) Any nonresident person, irrespective of sex, who
marries a legal resident of this state or marries a person who
later becomes a legal resident, may, upon becoming a legal
resident of this state, accede to the benefit of the spouse's
immediately precedent duration as a legal resident for
purposes of satisfying the 12-month durational require-
ment.
(e) No person shall lose his or her resident status for
tuition purposes solely by reason of serving, or, if a depen-
dent child, by reason of the parentor parents serving, in the
Armed Forces outside this state.
(f) A person who has been properly classified as a
resident for tuition purposes, but who, while enrolled in an
institution of higher education in this state, loses resident
tuition status because the person, or, if a dependent child,
the parent or guardian, establishes domicile or legal resi-
dence elsewhere, shall continue to enjoythe 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 gradu-
ates from an institution of higher education while classified
as a resident for tuition purposes and who subsequently
abandons Florida domicile shall be permitted to reenroll at
an institution of higher education in this state as a resident
for tuition purposes in accordance with the 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 fortuition purposes.
(j) Full-time instructional and administrative personnel
employed by state public schools, community colleges,
and institutions of higher education, and the spouses and
dependent children of such individuals, shall be classified
as residents for tuition purposes.
(2) An individual shall not be classified as a resident for
tuition purposes and, thus, shall not be eligible to receive
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 determining
residence, the university shall require evidence such as a
voter registration, driver's license, automobile registration,
location of bank account, rent receipts or any other relevant
materials as evidence that the applicant has 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 university may require a 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-




26 /GENERAL INFORMATION


gration and Naturalization Service, or who hold an Immi-
gration and Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of
an approved adjustment of status application, or Cuban
Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees or other refugees or
asylees so designated by the United States Immigration and
Naturalization Service who are considered as Resident
Aliens, or other legal 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" regis-
tration rates is on the applicant for such classification.
(3) In applying this policy,
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the
institution, or a person allowed to register at the institution
on a space available basis.
(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true, fixed, and
permanent home, and to which whenever the person is
absent the person has the intention of returning.
(c) "Parent" shall mean an individual's father or mother,
or if there is a court appointed guardian or legal custodian
of the individual, other than the father or mother, it shall
mean the guardian or legal custodian.
(d) The term "dependent child" as used in this rule, is
the same as a dependent as defined in the Internal Revenue
Code of 1954.
(4) In all applications for admission or registration at the
institution on a space available basis a "resident for tuition
purposes" applicant, or, if a dependent child, the parent of
the applicant, shall make and file with such application a
written statement 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, ifadependentchild, the individual's
parent, after maintaining a legal residence and being a bona
fide domiciliary of Florida for twelve (12) months, immedi-
ately prior to enrollment and qualification as a resident,
ratherthan forthe purpose of maintaining a meretemporary
residence or abode incident to enrollment in an institution
of higher education, may apply for and be granted classifi-
cation as a "resident for tuition purposes"; provided, how-
ever, that those students who are nonresident aliens or who
are in the United States on a nonimmigration visa will not
be entitled to reclassification. An application for reclassifi-
cation as a "resident for tuition purposes" shall comply with
provisions of subsection (4) above. An applicant who has
been classified as a "nonresident for tuition purposes" at
time of original enrollment shall furnish evidence as stated
in 6C-7.005(1) to the satisfaction of the registering authority
that the 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 recom-
mended that the application for reclassification be accom-
panied by a certified copy of a declaration of intent to
establish legal domicile in the state, which intent must have
been filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, as provided
by Section 222.17, Florida Statutes. If the request for
reclassification and the necessary documentation is not
received by the registrar prior to the last day of registration
for the term in which the student intends to be reclassified,
the student will not be reclassified for that term.


(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident for
tuition purposes" status to applicant therefore may be initi-
ated 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
subjectto such disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed by

UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES

The Libraries of the University of Florida form the largest
information resource system in the state of Florida. While
the collections are extensive, they are not comprehensive
and graduate students will find it useful to supplement them
through a variety of services and cooperative programs
drawing upon the resources of many other libraries. The
following entry describes the UF libraries, local collection
strengths and the physical distribution of collections among





36 /GENERAL INFORMATION


campus libraries as well as the services available to assist
students and faculty in locating needed information.
The Libraries of the University of Florida consist of eight
libraries. Six are in the system known as the George A.
Smathers Libraries of the University of Florida and two
(Health Sciences and Law) are attached to their respective
administrative units. All of the libraries serve all the
University's faculty and students, but each has a special
mission to be the primary support of specific colleges and
degree programs. Because of the interdisciplinary natureof
research, scholars may find collections built in one library
to serve a specific discipline or constituency to be of great
importance to their own research in another discipline. It
most likely will be necessary to use more than one library
to discover all of the resources pertinent to a particular
research interest.
The LUIS system, your key to the UF libraries collections,
has been greatly expanded in recent years. It now offers a
diverse information menu. In addition to the online catalog
of the holdings of the University of Florida, LUIS contains
the catalogs of the other State University System libraries in
Florida and of libraries in other states and foreign nations.
Several indexes to articles and reports provide citations to
journal articles. A new "Library News and Information"
section contains library hours, phone numbers, and other
practical information. There are also gateways to other
information sources-local, national and international.
The online catalog eases the difficulty of locating mate-
rials as it is accessible from offices, laboratories, and
dormitories or homes with workstation access to NERDC.
It contains about96% of the cataloged collections-excep-
tions are some older humanities and social science titles
acquired priorto 1975 as well as some uncataloged special,
archival, map, microform, and document collections. Ac-
cess to many of these collections is available through the
Union Card Catalog on the First Floor of Library West,
specialized catalogs in Special Collections and Docu-
ments, or other finding aids in Microtexts and the Map
Collection. Reference staff throughout the libraries can
provide instruction in the use of LUIS and/or written instruc-
tions for self help.
CyberLibrary is a new service which is accessible from
the main LUIS menu. It has developed into a system of user-
friendly menus that provide access to a wealth of informa-
tion about the UF Libraries, electronic journals, academic
electronic discussion lists, Internet access tools, and more.
Several electronic publications received by the Libraries
which do not exist as print publications can be read in
CyberLibrary. Examples include Post Modern Culture,
BrynMawr Classical Review, Leonardo Electronic News,
Central America Update, Chronicle of Latin American
Economic Affairs, etc.
Owing to disciplinary variation in research methods, the
policies enforced and the services offered may differ from
library to library. Most of the libraries have an advisory
board consisting of faculty and students who advise on the
policies and services relatingto their library. Information on
local policies is available at the circulation and reference
desks in each library.
As is common in research libraries, library materials are
housed in a variety of locations depending upon discipline.
SLibrary West holds most of the humanities and social
science collections, as well as professional collections in
support of business, health and human performance, and
journalism. The Documents Collections are major hold-
ings of all federal documents (excepts the science related
holdings in Marston), many state and local documents,


and selected holdings of international and foreign docu-
ments.
*Smathers Library holds the Latin American and Judaica
collections, and the Special Collections-rare books and
manuscripts, PK Young Library of Florida History, and
University Archives.
eMarston Science Library holds most of the agriculture,
science, and technology collections as well as the Map
Library. It also houses the federal documents published
by the USDA, NASA, Patent Office, and USGS.
*Architecture/Fine Arts Library (201 Fine Arts Building
A) holds visual arts, architecture, and building construc-
tion materials.
*Education Library (1500 Norman Hall) holds most of
the education collections.
*Music Library (231 Music Building) holds most music
materials and a collection of recordings.
*journalism Reading Room holds a small collection of
materials relating to journalism and mass communica-
tion.
*Health Science Center Library holds major resources
forthe medical sciences, related life sciences, and veteri-
nary medicine.
Legal Information Center holds major resources for law
and related social sciences.

Together the Libraries hold over 3,000,000 cataloged
volumes, 4,200,000 microforms, 1,000,000 documents,
550,000 maps, and 20,000 computer datasets. The Librar-
ies have built a number of nationally significant research
collections primarily in support of graduate research pro-
grams. Among them are the Baldwin Library of Children's
Literature which is among the world's greatest collections
of literature for children (Smathers Library, Special Collec-
tions); the Map and Imagery Library which is an extensive
repository of maps, atlases, aerial photographs, and remote
sensing imagery with particular collection strengths for the
southeastern United States, Florida, Latin America, and
Africa south of the Sahara (Marston Science Library, Level
One);the Isser and Ray Price Library ofJudaicawhich isthe
largest collection of its kind in the Southeast (Smathers
Library, fourth floor); and the P.K. Young Library of Florida
History, which is the state's preeminent Floridiana collec-
tion and holds the largest North American collection of
Spanish colonial documents concerning the southeastern
United States as well as rich archives of prominent Florida
politicians (Smathers Library, Special Collections).
The Libraries also have particularly strong holdings in
architectural preservation and 18th-century American
architecture (AFA), late 19th- and early-20th-century
German state documents from 1850-1940 (Library West),
Latin American art and architecture (AFA and Smathers
Library), national bibliographies (Library West, Reference),
U.S. Census information, especially in electronic format
(Library West, Documents), the rural sociology of Florida
and tropical and subtropical agriculture collections (Marston
Science Library), English and American literature (Library
West), and U.S. documents (Library West, Documents).
All students and faculty are provided library services
upon presentation of the University of Florida machine
readable ID card. This card is used to circulate books, to
borrow reserves; and to establish identity for other library
services such as Interlibrary Loan and online searching.
Reference service is provided to library users in each library
and is also available via telephone and E-Mail. All of the
libraries provide special services to assist students and
faculty with disabilities in their use of the libraries; informa-





SPECIAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS / 37


tion is available at all circulation desks. Atthe beginning of
each semester, the Libraries offer orientation programs
designed to teach those new to campus what services are
available and how to use them. Schedules are posted in
each library at the beginning of each term. Individual
assistance is available at the reference desk in each library.
In addition, instructional librarians will work with faculty
and teaching assistants to develop and present course
specific library instruction sessions. Instruction coordina-
tors are available in Humanities and Social Science Refer-
ence in LibraryWest, in Marston Science Library, and in the
branches.
Subject specialists, who work closely with faculty and
graduate students to select materials forthe collections, also
advise graduate students and other researchers who need
specialized bibliographic knowledge to define what infor-
mation resources are available locally and nationally to
support specific research. A good time to consult the
subject specialists is when beginning work on a major
research project or developing a working knowledge of
another discipline. A list of subject specialists is available
at reference desks and users may schedule a meeting with
the appropriate specialist.
The Libraries are members of the Research Libraries
Group and the Center for Research Libraries which gives
faculty and students access to many major scholarly collec-
tions. In addition, the libraries are linked to major national
and international databases such as RLIN, OCLC, NEXIS/
LEXIS, DIALOGUE, and QUESTEL. Many materials that are
not held on campus can be quickly located and borrowed
through one of the cooperative programs to which the
Libraries belong. Consult with a reference librarian to take
advantage of these services. Publications describing spe-
cialized services are available at reference and circulation
desks throughout the Libraries.
Current information regarding library hours may be
obtained by selecting Library Hours and Phone Numbers
from the LUIS menu or calling the desired library (392-0341
for Library West and Smathers, 392-2758 for Marston
Science Library).



MAJOR ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTATION
CENTER (MAIC)


The Major Analytical Instrumentation Center (MAIC) was
established in 1982 to help make available complex mod-
ern analytical instrumentation and to promote its efficient
usage on the campus and in the state. This is accomplished
by coordinating campuswide usage, helping to provide
resources for maintenance, upgrading existing instruments
and developing new techniques, planning purchases of
major new instruments, training and supervising users, and
providing professional scientists to supervise the solution of
individual problems. Center personnel also direct users to
other campus facilities, if necessary. For example, the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) and the
Department of Chemistry both have a number of analytical
facilities that are available to some users.
The instruments involved include several electron mi-
croscopes (TEM, SEM, AEM) with full analytical and imag-
ing capabilities, instruments directed toward surface analy-
sis (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., scanningelectron microscopy, trans-
mission electron microscopy, vacuum technology, surface
science, and optical microscopy. These are open both for
graduate credit and to those outside the University commu-
nity. (The Chemistry Department, IFAS, and the Engineer-
ing and Industrial Experiment Station also regularly offer
several short courses of a complementary nature.) Some
individually supervised training directed by Center person-
nel 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.

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 Univer-
sity, it carried dual responsibility asthe 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 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., Tuesday
through Saturday, and 1 to4 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 animals; Anthro-
pology, whose staff members are concerned with the study
of historic and prehistoric people and their cultures; Inter-
pretation, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of
knowledge through museum exhibit techniques and edu-
cation programs. Members of the scientific and educational
staff of the Museum hold dual appointments in appropriate
teaching departments. Through these appointments, they
participate in both undergraduate and graduate teaching
programs.

INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE
STUDIES


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 education.
It extends from foreign language instruction, area studies
programs, study abroad opportunities, and international
exchanges into every facet of its teaching, research, and
service. The University is dedicated to serving the interna-
tional interests of Florida and the nation and to preparing its
students for the global challenges and opportunities of the
21st century.
During the last three decades, the University of Florida's
commitment to international studies has expanded rapidly.
This expansion has resulted in the creation of a Center for
Latin American Studies, a Center for African Studies, a
Center for Tropical Agriculture, a Center for International
Student and Faculty Exchanges, a program in international
relations, and an English Language Institute 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 Studies
Building, Linton E. Grinter Hall. The modern four-story
building contains faculty offices, study cubicles, and semi-
nar rooms, as well as the offices of the Graduate School, the
Division of Sponsored Research, the Center for African
Studies, Program in African and Asian Languages and
Literatures, Center for 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 September 1991, the Provost
created the Office of International Studies with the charge
of developing and coordinating the international activities
of the University. The Director of this office represents the
University on councils and committees related to interna-
tional academic activities, projects, and enterprises.
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 inter-
disciplinary instruction, research, and outreach related to
Africa. In cooperation with participating departments
throughout the University, the Center offers a Certificate in
African Studies at both the master's and doctoral levels. The
curriculum provides a broad foundation for students pre-
paring for teaching or other professional careers in which a
knowledge of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships.-Students
admitted to the Graduate School in pursuit of degrees
offered by participating departments are eligible to com-
pete for graduate assistantships and Title VI Foreign Lan-
guage and Area Studies fellowships.
Extracurricular Activities.-The Center sponsors an an-
nual conference on an African topic, a weekly colloquium
series-BARAZA-with invited speakers, and a biweekly
film series. The Carter Lectures on Africa are held through-
out the academic year. The Center also directs an extensive
out-reach program addressed to public schools, commu-
nity colleges, and universities nationwide.
Library Resources.-The Center for African Studies pro-
vides 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.
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 thesis on an
African topic.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Studies with
the doctoral degree are (a) the doctoral requirements of the
major department; (b) 18 credits of course work related to
Africa in two or more other departments; (c) a dissertation

knowledge of a language appropriate to the area of special-
ization.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the
Center should be addressed to the Director, Center for
African Studies, 427 Grinter Hall.
International Relations, a field of specialization leading
to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, is offered through the
Department of Political Science. In addition tothe 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-interna-
tional relations. The political science-international rela-
tions program is designed to provide professional educa-
tion to those whose primary interest is a career in foreign


INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE STUDIES / 39


relations, whether in the public or private sector. Require-
mentsfortheM.A. are an interdisciplinary coreof 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 eco-
nomics, journalism, agriculture, statistics, computer sci-
ences, or area studies. For the Ph.D., the student must
complete the requirements 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 emphasizes
training and research in area and language studies, which
develop a greater understanding of Latin America's cultures
and societies. Students concentrate in one department,
which may be Anthropology, Economics, Food and Re-
source Economics, Geography, History, Political Science,
Romance Languages and Literatures (Spanish), or Sociol-
ogy. This option is especially suited to the needs of students
who wish to obtain a well-rounded background in Latin
American Studies before pursuing the Ph.D. in a special-
ized discipline.
The topical concentration clusters course work and
research around a thematic field focusing on contemporary
Latin American problems. Students may concentrate in
Brazilian studies, Caribbean studies, international commu-
nications, museum studies, population studies, tropical
agriculture, and tropical conservation and development.
This option builds on prior professional or administrative
experiences and prepares students for technical and profes-
sional work related to Latin America and the Caribbean.
Other requirements, common to both options, are (1) 15
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 Hai-
tian Creole); and (3) a thesis on an interdisciplinary Latin
American topic.
Although the M.A. in Latin American studies is a terminal
degree, many past recipients have entered the Ph.D. pro-
grams 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, government agencies, non-
profit corporations, and private companies in the United
States and Latin America.
Prerequisites for admission to the program are (1) a
baccalaureate degree from an accredited collegeor univer-
sity; (2) a grade average of B for all upper-division under-
graduate work; (3) a combined verbal-quantitative score of
1000 on the Graduate Record Examination; (4) a TOEFL

The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a consor-
tium of 52 major educational and research institutions in
the United States and abroad, created to promote under-
standing of tropical environments and their intelligent 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 Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences, seeks to stimulate inter-
est in research and curriculum related to the tropical
environment and its development.
Research.-International agricultural development as-
sistance contracts frequently have research components.
The Center assists in the coordination of this research.
Minor in Tropical Agriculture.-An interdisciplinary
minor in tropical agriculture is available at both the master's
and doctoral levels for students majoring in agriculture,
forestry, and other fields where knowledge of the tropics is
relevant. The minor may include courses treating specific
aspects of the tropics such as natural resource management
(e.g., soils, water, biodiversity), climate, agricultural pro-
duction, and the languages and cultures of those who live
in tropical countries.
Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA).-A program
emphasizing breadth in topics relevant to tropical agricul-
ture (with certificate) for graduate students is available
through the College of Agriculture. The CTA is designed to
prepare students for work in situations requiring knowledge
of both the biological and social aspects of tropical agricul-
ture. Students entering the program will receive guidance
from members of the CTA Steering Committee regarding
course work and language preparation appropriate for
careers in international agricultural development.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credit hours. The
"typical" certificate program will consistof 12 to 24 credits.
These hours may, with approval from supervisory commit-
tees, also count toward the M.S. or Ph.D. Students in the
CTA program are required to demonstrate proficiency in a
language spoken in the tropics. A score on the Foreign
Service Institute (FSI) Language Examination of 2.0 or
higher, or a comparable score on a similar examination (if
taken within two years of admission to the CTA program)
will fulfill the language requirement. Otherwise, an internal
language examination will be administered sometime dur-
ing the CTA program for each individual student. No
specific language is required; however Spanish, French, or
Portuguese is suggested. While experience in a foreign
country is strongly encouraged, it is not a requisite for the
CTA.
Application brochures are available from the Office of
the Dean for Academic Programs (College of Agriculture),
2014 McCarty Hall.
OtherActivities.-The Center seeks a broad dissemina-
tion of knowledge about tropical agriculture through the

PUBLIC POLICY RESEARCH CENTER

The Public Policy Research Center (PPRC) at the Uni-
versity of Florida was established in 1975 to support
scholarly research on government involvement in the
private sector of the market. PPRC has focused on alterna-
tive ways policymakers might approach looming eco-
nomic problems and on a search for solutions that recog-
nize the fundamentals of decision-making with respect to
economic structure at both micro and macro levels.

PUBLIC UTILITY RESEARCH CENTER

Florida's Public Utility Research Center (PURC) was
organized in 1972. Its Executive Committee includes
representatives of public utilities, the University, the
Florida Public Service Commission, and the Florida Pub-
lic Counsel. PURC's primary objectives are (1) to increase
student and faculty awareness of the utility industry and its
problems, (2) to undertake research designed to help
solve problems faced by the energy and communication
industries, and (3) to train students for employment by
utility companies and regulatory authorities.
PURC seeks to accomplish these goals by providing
student fellowships and assistantships, by supporting fac-
ulty research, by holding conferences and seminars to
discuss both major policy issues and current faculty
research, and by serving as a contact point between
business, government, and the academic community.
PURC's research is disseminated in working papers,
journals, and books, as well as in professional meetings
and governmental hearings. Major areas of interest in-
clude measurement of the cost of capital; financing utility
construction programs; the restructuring of the telecom-
munications industry; rate design for telephone, gas, and
electric utilities; and other timely issues which are impor-
tant to utility companies, consumers, and regulators.
Contact the Executive Director, Public Utility Research
Center, 205 Matherly Hall, for information.

REAL ESTATE RESEARCH CENTER

The Real Estate Research Center was established in
1973 to facilitate the study of business and economic
problems related to real estate. Faculty members in the
field of real estate serve as the core staff members of the
Center, with research assistance provided by several
graduate students. Faculty members in other departments
and colleges participate in projects requiring multidisci-
plinary inputs. Graduate students also conduct their own
research for theses and dissertations in the Center.
The Center also sponsors or cosponsors a number of
continuing education programs in real estate each year.
Courses and seminars typically are presented in the areas
of mortgage banking, financial institutions, real estate
appraisal, and real estate investment analysis. Most of
these courses and seminars are open to full-time under-
graduate and graduate students in real estate at the
University of Florida.
Many types of research projects are conducted in the
Center. They range from economic and social issues in
land use planning to analysis of the managerial process
and ratesof return in varioustypesof real estate businesses
and properties. The Center has developed textual materi-
als for organizations such as the Florida Real Estate
Commission and the Appraisal Institute.
Contract research projects in the Center have been
sponsored and funded by various agencies of the Florida
state government, city governments, the Florida Real
Estate Commission, and the Appraisal Institute Founda-
tion. For information contact the Director, 337 Business
Building.

CENTER FOR STUDIES OF ADVANCED STRUCTURAL
COMPOSITES

The Center for Studies of Advanced Structural Compos-
ites in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Me-
chanics, and Engineering Science was established in
1979 within the Center for Excellence Program in New
Materials. The purpose of the Center of Excellence
Program is to aid in the development of high technology
industry in Florida by conducting research and engineer-
ing development of new materials, and by preparing
master's and doctoral candidates in this field for later
employment in Florida industries. The Center was orga-
nized to conduct research inthe host department and also
to provide a focal point for interaction with other depart-
ments, other universities, research institutes, government
laboratories, and industries in research related to prob-
lems involving design, fabrication, and analysis of struc-
tural composites.

CENTER FOR WETLANDS AND WATER RESOURCES

The Center for Wetlands merged with the Florida Water
Resources Research Center in August 1991 to become the
Center for Wetlands and Water Resources. As a team, the
two centers address today's environmental problems and
issues with greater expertise and pooled resources. To
begin to perceive the future direction of this new center,
a brief history of each center as a separate entity follows.
The Center for Wetlands is an intercollege research
division dedicated to understanding wetlands and their
roll in the partnershipof humanity and nature. TheCenter
encourages interdisciplinary research on ecology prob-
lems, management, and reclamation, and effective use of
wetlands. The Center advances knowledge through spe-
cial research approaches such as systems ecology model-
ing and simulation, energy analysis and planning, field
experiments on vegetation response to water control,
reclamation of wetlands and surrounding watersheds,
and regional planning. The Center fosters campus and
statewide communication through a central workshop
activity, organized research projects of county and state
concern, wetlands publications, conferences and short
courses, research data collections, and proposals for
curricula. Support of faculty and graduate students is
provided by active projects. The Center has projects with
several state and federal agencies (the Environmental
Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation, the
Florida Department of Environmental Regulation, the
Florida Institute of Phosphate Research, and others).
The Florida Water Resources Research Center, funded
by the Department of the Interior, was established in 1964
as a result of the passage of Public Law 88-379-The
Water Resources Research Act of 1964-"to stimulate,
sponsor, provide for, and supplement present programs
for conduct of research, investigation, experiments, and
the training of scientists in the fields of water and of
resources which affect water." Under the administration




50 /GENERAL INFORMATION


of the Water Resources Research Center, current water
research projects pertaining to the achievement of ad-
equate statewide water resources management and water
quality and quantity are being conducted by faculty atthe
University of Florida and at other universities in the state.
The Graduate Certificate in Wetlands provides gradu-
ate students majoring in science and engineering with
courses and experience that complement their majors
with preparation for wetlands and water quality-related
careers. The certificate requires 18 credit hours, including
courses and wetland and water research experience.

ENGLISH SKILLS FOR INTERNATIONAL
STUDENTS

The English Language Institute (ELI) offers a noncredit,
nondegree program in English as a second language for
applicants to the University who wish to increase their
competence. Courses at all levels are offered in the fall,
spring, and summer terms as well as a short session (mid-
July to mid-August), which is strongly recommended to
incoming students as a refresher course. ELI emphasizes
oral and written skills needed by persons who wish to

a variety of subjects, including TOEFL preparation. In




STUDENT SERVICES /51


addition to regular English Language Institute testing, an
institutional administration of TOEFL is given near the end
of fall, spring, and summer terms. Further information is
available from the Director, English Language Institute,
315 Norman Hall.
Scholarly Writing and Academic Spoken English.-
Two programs intended to help international graduate
students are offered by the Program in Linguistics: Schol-
arly Writing (SW) and Academic Spoken English (ASE).
Scholarly Writing is useful to all students who would like
to master the forms of writing they need in their course
work, including the technical paper. Students identified
as likely to need help with English writing are required to
take a writing test upon arrival at the University. The
results determine whether they must enroll in ENS 4449.
A second course, ENS 4450, is designed for those students
about to begin writing their theses or dissertations. It
includes report writing, resumes, business letters, grant
proposals, and thesis writing. The Academic Spoken
English program offers three classes which address the
oral skills needed for daily communication in a classroom
situation. ENS 5501 (Academic Spoken English I) is a
basic, intensive course for graduate students scoring
below 220 on the SPEAK test. ENS 5502 (Academic
Spoken English II) is required for students who score
between 220 and 250 on the SPEAK test and have a
teaching appointment. The course focuses on language
and on cultural and pedagogical problems which interna-
tional teaching assistants encounter in their classrooms.
ENS 5503 (Academic Spoken English Tutorial) is designed
for students who have completed ENS 5501 or who
scored above 220 on the SPEAK test. International gradu-
ate students are matched with American undergraduates
seeking tutoring; the tutoring sessions are videotaped and
then serve as the basis for instruction in communication
and teaching skills. ENS 4449, 4450, 5501, 5502, and
5503 may not be used to meet any graduate degree
requirement.
International applicants should check with their de-
partments to determine whether they will need to take
courses in the ELI, ASE, or SW program.

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

The 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 anthropology,
archeology, anthropological linguistics, and physical/bio-
logical 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 anthro-
pology 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 Examina-
tion 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 forthe program are listed in this Catalogunder
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 Depart-
ment for certification. Minimum requirements will nor-
mally 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 comprehensive ex-
amination, and 3) a thesis, report, or paper judged to be of
excellent quality by the student's supervisory committee. In
most cases, candidates for the Ph.D. must achieve compe-
tency in a language other than English. Entering students
who already have earned a master's
degree may apply for direct admission to the doctoral
program.
Study for the Ph.D. degree in anthropology at the Univer-
sity of Florida by qualified master's degree recipients at
Florida Atlantic University and Florida State University is
facilitated by a cooperative arrangement i n which appropri-
ate facu ty members of these universities are members of the
graduate faculty of the University of Florida.
There are two deadlines for receiving completed applica-
tions for admission into the graduate program. November
1 (for spring semester admissions) and March 11 (for fall and
summer semester admissions).




ANT 5115-Archeological Theory (3) Prereq: one course in
archeology; and/or anthropology or permission of the instructor.

Master of Architecture.-The Department of Architec-
ture offers graduate work leading to the first professional
degree, Master of Architecture. During graduate studies,
each student has the opportunity to focus on one or more
areas, including design, history and theory, urban design,
preservation, structures, and technology. The student's
overall college experience, both undergraduate and gradu-
ate programs, is intended to be a complete unit of profes-




68 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION


sional education leading to practice in architecture or
related fields. Students entering the program at the Univer-
sity of Florida will matriculate in one of the following tracks:
Baccalaureate in Architecture Base.-For those students
who have a four-year baccalaureate degree from an accred-
ited architectural program and have completed 6 to 8
architecture studios, two years in residence (52 credits) are
normally required for completion of the Master of Architec-
ture degree; notification of program length is part of the
letter of acceptance and is determined by portfolio and
transcript review. ARC 6241, 6355, and 6356 are required
of all graduate students in this track and are prerequisites for
the required thesis or project. Course sequences in history
and theory, technology, and structures must also be com-
pleted.
Baccalaureate in Related Degree Base.-For those stu-
dents who have a baccalaureate degree with an architec-
ture or related major (art, interior design, landscape archi-
tecture) and who have completed 4 or 6 architecture or
design studies, three years of residence (83 credits, approxi-
mately) are normally required for completion of the Master
of Architecture degree; notification of program length is
part of the letter of acceptance and is determined by
portfolio and transcript review. ARC 4073, 4074, 6355,
and 6356 are required of all graduate students in this track
and are prerequisites for the required thesis or project.
(Undergraduate courses-3000 and 4000 level in the ma-
jor do not count toward the minimum requirements for the
graduate degree.) Course sequences in history and theory,
materials and methods, technology, structures, and prac-
tice must be completed.
Baccalaureate in Nonrelated Degree Base.-For those
students who have a baccalaureate degree in a nonrelated
academic area and have completed less that 4 design
studies courses, four years of residence (112 credits, ap-
proximately) are normally required for completion of the
Master of Architecture degree; notification of program
length is part of the letter of acceptance and is determined
by portfolio and transcript review. (Summer introductory
courses-such as design exploration offered by the Archi-
tecture Department-are strongly recommended.) ARC
4071, 4072, 4073, 4074, 6241, 6355, and 6356 are
required of all graduate students in this track and are
prerequisites for the required thesis or project. (Under-
graduate courses-3000 and 4000 level-in the major do
not count toward the minimum requirements forthe gradu-
ate degree.) Course sequences in history and theory, mate-
rials and methods, technology, structures, and practice
must be completed.
Accredited Five-Year Professional Base.-For those stu-
dents holding a baccalaureate degree in architecture from
an accredited five-year professional degree program, a one-
year degree program is available. In these cases, a special-
ized curriculum which compliments the needs of the
applicant is developed. The minimum registration is 30
credits; however, it may increase if transcript reviews reveal
further course work is needed to meet registration and
curriculum requirements. ARC .6356 is required and is
prerequisite for the required thesis or project.
Masterof Science inArchitectural Studies.-TheM.S.A.S.
is a nonprofessional degree for those students who wish to
engage in advanced investigations in specialized areas of
architectural history, theory, technology, design, preserva-
tion, or practice. Students with a bachelor's degree in any
disciplinefrom an accredited university areeligibleto apply
to this program; the proposed area of focus should be
precisely defined in the application. This is normally a


three-semester program (32 hours) which includes a thesis.
(No more than six hours of ARC 6971 may be counted in the
minimum credit hours for the degree.) Interdisciplinary
study is encouraged.
The College of Architecture sponsors special curricula in
architecture to enhance the academic program. Preserva-
tion Institute: Caribbean, Preservation Institute: Nantucket,
and Vicenza Institute for Architecture accept students, not
only from the University of Florida, but from academic
circles throughout the United States and the world for year-
round study. All students in graduate architecture programs
at the University of Florida are offered the opportunity to
apply for one or more of these programs.
Applications.-All applications for graduate admission,
including official transcripts, G RE scores, and TOEFL scores,
if necessary, must be received by the Office of the Registrar
by January 15. In addition to satisfying University require-
ments for admission, applicants are required to submit to
the Graduate Secretary, Department of Architecture, 231
ARCH, University of Florida, the following: a portfolio of
their creative work; a scholarly statement of intent and
objectives; and three letters of recommendation. This
material must be received by January 15 to be considered
for admission in the following fall semester. (Portfolio must
be accompanied by self-addressed, stamped envelope.)
Students may apply after the January 15 deadline but will
only be considered if spaces become available. (Updates of
portfolios are accepted afterJanuary 15; however, applica-
tions will not be considered until they are complete.)
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 necessary to assess
studio fees to defray costs of base maps and other generally
used materials.

*This member of the faculty of the University of South Florida is also a
memberof thegraduatefacultyof the UniversityofFlorida andparticipates
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;
general relativity; quantum field theory in the early uni-
verse; photometry of compact binaries and intrinsic vari-
ables; photometry of active galactic nuclei; dynamical
astronomy; structure, kinematics, and dynamics of galax-
ies; solar system dynamics; comets; interplanetary dust;
satellite interiors; planetary magnetospheres; lunar occulta-
tion observations; radio and optical instrumentation; and
certain topics of theoretical stellar astrophysics. The De-
partment is active in Voyager radioastronomical investiga-
tions 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 reflec-
tors. Instrumentation includes photographic and CCD cam-
eras, and microprocessor-based photometers. The obser-
vatory contains one 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) instrumen-
tation consisting of a 7-acre filled aperture, phase-steered
array, and several smaller antennas, advanced terminal
equipment, including wide-band radio spectrographs. Sev-
eral research programs use national astronomy facilities
(KPNO, NRAO, NAIC, CTIO, IRTF, IPAC, and the Kuiper
Airborne Observatory).
On campus facilities include a research darkroom con-
taining hypersensitization, sensitometric and photomicro-
graphic equipment, an electronics shop, data reduction
rooms with audio and videotape processing equipment, iris
photometer, microdensitometer, blink comparator, mea-
suring engines, the Palomar Sky Survey, and a planetary
imaging center (under development). The Department also
maintains the International Card Catalog of Photometric
Binaries. Most scientific books and publications are cen-
trally housed in an extensive science library located near
the Department.
Computing within the Department is handled by a
distributed client-server environment based on more than
20 RISC-based UNIX workstations (Sun, DEC, IBM). This
environment provides each user with the desktop comput-
ing power necessary to run sophisticated applications
ranging from document preparation (The Publisher, TEX) to
data analysis and image processing (AIPS, IRAF, PV WAVE).
In addition to the Department's facilities, researchers also
have access (via Internet) to an IBM 3090/600J mainframe
vector facility operated and maintained by the Northeast
Regional Data Center (NERDC) and located in the same
building as the Astronomy Department. BITNET, Internet,
and SPAN network connections are also available. The
University isa SmartnodeoftheCornell 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 but take the qualifying examination and
degree in physics rather than astronomy. All degree candi-
dates 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 by writing

*These members of the faculty of Florida Atlantic University are also
members ofthegraduate facultyof the UniversityofFlorida andparticipate
in the doctoral program in the University of Florida Department of
Chemistry.

The Department offers the Master of Science and Doctor
of Philosophy degrees with a major in chemistry and
specialization in analytical, organic, inorganic, or physical
chemistry. The nonthesis degree Master of Science in
Teaching is also offered with a major in chemistry.
New graduate students should have adequate 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 semester of quantitative analysis,
one year of organic chemistry, one year of physical chem-
istry, and one semester of advanced inorganic chemistry.
Additional courses in instrumental analysis, advanced physi-
cal and organic chemistry are desirable. Deficiencies in any
of these areas may be corrected during the first year of


graduate study. Such deficiencies are determined by a
series of placement tests given prior to registration, and the
results of these tests are used in planning the student's
program.
Doctoral candidates are required to complete at least 9
semester credits of courses specified by the division of the
Chemistry Department in which they choose to specialize,
as well as at least semester credits of out-of-major-division
courses. There are some minor restrictions on courses that
may be used to meet this requirement. 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 departmen-
tal language requirement in German, French, or Russian.
Candidates must serve not less than one year as teaching
assistants. This requirement will be waived only when, in
the opinion of the Department, unusual circumstances
justify such action.
A chemical-physics option is offered for students who
will be doing research in areas of physical chemistry which
require a strong background in physics. For this option, a
student meets the departmental requirements for concen-
tration in physical chemistry, except that only one out-of-
major division course is required. In addition, a minimum
of 14 credits in 4000 level or higher physics courses or a
minimum of 7 such credits in physics and 7 in 4000 level
or higher mathematics courses is required.
Candidates for the master's degree are required to com-
plete any two core courses. The Master of Science degree
in chemistry requires a thesis. The nonthesis degree Master
of Science in Teaching is offered with a major in chemistry
and requires a written paper of substantial length (30 to 50
pages) on an approved topic pertaining to some phase of
chemistry, under the course CHM 6905.
