INSTITUTIONAL PURPOSE


The University of Florida is a public,


land-grant


research 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 ten universities and a member of the Association


to every university.


This undergraduate foundation of


American higher education has grown more complex as
the knowledge 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 as well as in


a variety of professional schools.


Yet even with many

MISSION AND GOALS

The University of Florida belongs to an ancient tradi-
tion 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

, and that nurtures and prepares generations of

comparison to the best universities we can find. We need
not be the absolutely unambiguously best, but we must be

the best universities is a meaningless exercise, but most of

While this university recognizes


no limits on its intellec-


tual boundaries, and our faculty and students remain free


of quality we choose, our university should fal

group. If we define a group of universities who share our

in this country.
Public.-We exist thanks to the commitment and invest-

responsive to the needs of the citizens of our state. The
obligations we assume as a public university determine
many of our characteristics.
We have many more undergraduates than graduates;
we respond quickly to the needs of the state's economy;
we accommodate complex linkages with other state uni-
versities, community colleges, and K-12 public and pri-
vate institutions; and we operate in cooperative symbiosis
with our state's media. We also experience an often too-
close interaction with the political process. Private univer-
sities, that have a different profile, do not respond in the
same ways to these issues. We, as a public university,
must maintain close, continuous, and effective communi-
cation with our many publics.

Comprehensive.-This adjective recognizes the uni-


versal reach of our
principle, we excli
believe that our ap
understanding and
examine any field,
any topic. Resou
constrain us from


pursuit of knowledge. As a matter of
ude no field from our purview. We
proach to knowledge and learning, to
wisdom, requires us to be ready to
cultivate any discipline, and explore
rce limits, human or financial, may
cultivating one or another 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 intellec-
tual opportunity, we do so only to meet the practical
constraints of our current environment. We never relin-
quish the commitment to the holistic pursuit of knowl-
edge.

Land-Grant.-Florida belongs to the set of American
universities whose mandate includes a commitment to the
development and transmission of practical knowledge. As
one of the land-grant universities identified by the Morrill
Act of 1862, Florida has a special focus on agriculture and
engineering and a mandate to deliver the practical benefits
of university knowledgetoevery county in the state. Inour
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 commitment to translating the
benefit of abstract and theoretical knowledge into the
marketplace to 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
peculiarly American invention and captures one of the
powerful cultural beliefs of our country: that knowledge
passes the test of utility by remaining vitally connected to
industry and commerce.
Research.-Research defines this university. Our
faculty dedicate themselves not only to 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 experi-
mental discoveries of the geneticist, the insights of the
semiotician, the re-creations of the historian, or the
analysis of the anthropologist. We define research to
capture the business professor's analysis of economic
organization, the architect's design, and the musician's
interpretation or the artist's special vision. Research by
agronomists improves crops, and research by engineers
enhances materials. Medical and clinical research cures
and prevents disease. The list of research fields continues
as endlessly as the intellectual concerns of our faculty and
the academic vision of our colleges.
We must publish university research, whatever the
field. 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 contributes to the
international public conversation about the advancement
of knowledge.

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.

GENERAL INFORMATION


Postbaccalaureate students may enroll in graduate
courses but the work taken will not normally be transferred
to the graduate record if the student is subsequently
admitted to the Graduate School. By petition in clearly
justified cases and in conformance with regulations on
courses and credit, it is possible to transfer up to eight
semester hours of course work earned with a grade of A,
B+, or B.
Students who wish to enter the College of Education to
obtain teacher certification may not complete a program
as postbaccalaureate students. A department may accept
students in postbaccalaureate status for a limited time to
meet admission requirements for a master's degree. Inter-
ested students should write to 134 Norman Hall or call
(352) 392-0721 ext. 400 for further information.


FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE
STUDENTS

University of Florida faculty in tenured or tenure-
accruing lines, as designated by the Florida Administrative
Code, normally may not pursue graduate degrees from this
institution. Exceptions are made for the Florida Coopera-
tive Extension Service (IFAS) county personnel, the faculty
of the P. K. Yonge Laboratory School, and University
Libraries faculty.
Under certain restrictions established by the Graduate
Council, persons holding nontenure- or nonpermanent-
status-accruing titles may pursue nonthesis master's de-
grees at the University of Florida. Any other exceptions to
this policy must be approved by the Graduate Council.
Such exceptions, if given, are rare and will only be
approved when it is determined to be in the best interest
of the University.


STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM
PROGRAMS

Traveling Scholar Program.-This program makes the
entire State University System graduate curriculum avail-
able to University of Florida graduate students. A course
or research activity not offered on this campus, taken
under the auspices of the Traveling Scholar Program at
another SUS university, will count as credit at the Univer-
sity of Florida if approved by the graduate coordinator or
the supervisory committee chair and the Dean of the
Graduate School. Traveling scholars are normally limited
to one term on the campus of the host university. The
deans of graduate schools of the state universities are the
coordinators of the program, and interested students

GENERAL


REGULATIONS


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

CTI Ifn If Anf





GENERAL REGULATIONS


greater, is 12 credits. The minimum full-time registration
requirement is reduced for those students who are gradu-
ate assistants. Guidelines for minimum registration 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 coordinator or student's adviser
for students who are not pursuing a degree on a full-time
basis. Such exceptions must be clearly justified and the
approved registration must be commensurate with the use
of University facilities and faculty time.
The minimum study load for part-time students not on
assistantship, including fellows whose stipends are less
than $3,150, is three credits during fall and spring semes-
ters 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
graduate students, with the exception described under
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses
numbered 7000 and above are designed primarily for
advanced graduate students.
No more than five hours each of 6910 (Supervised
Research) and 6940 (Supervised Teaching) maybe taken
by a graduate student at the University of Florida.
A complete listof 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 shou Id be consu Ited concerning available
courses.
Generally graduate courses may not be repeated 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: imme-
diately following the semester credit designation.
Graduate students must conform to the Office of the
University Registrar's deadline for drops. However, under
certain circumstances, substitutions of courses, if ap-
proved by the Graduate School, are permitted after the
Registrar's deadline.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by corre-
spondence may be used for graduate credit.


GRADES

University definitions of grades and procedures for
receiving and awarding (nonstandard grades), such as I
and W, are given in the Undergraduate Catalog.
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 require-
ment. In 5000-level courses and above, C+ and C grades
count toward a graduate degree if an equal number of
credit hours in courses numbered 5000 or higher have
been earned with grades of B+ and A, respectively. Grade
points are not designated for S and U grades; these grades
are not used in calculating the grade-point average.
Grades of S and U are the only grades awarded in
courses numbered 6910 (Supervised Research), 6940
(Supervised Teaching), 6971 (Master's Research), 6972
(Engineer's Research), 6973 (Individual Project), 7979
(Advanced Research), and 7980 (Doctoral Research).
Additional courses for which S and U grades apply are
noted in the departmental offerings.
All language courses regardless of level may be taken S/
U if the student's major is not a language and the courses
are not used to satisfy a minor. Approval is required from
the student's supervisory committee chair and the instruc-
tor of the course. S/U approval should be made by the date
stipulated in the Schedule of Courses. All 1000 and 2000
level courses may be taken S/U. No other courses--
graduate, undergraduate, or professional-may be taken
for an S/U grade.
Deferred Grade H.-The grade of H is not a substitute
for a grade of S, U, or I. Courses for which H grades are
appropriate must be so noted in their catalog descriptions,
and must be approved by the Graduate Curriculum Com-
mittee and the Graduate School. This grade may be used
only in special situations where the expected unit of work
may be developed over a period of time greater than a
single term.
Incomplete Grades.-Grades of I (incomplete) received
during the preceding semester should be removed as soon
as possible. Grades of I carry no quality points and lower
the overall grade-point average.
All grades of H and I must be removed prior to the
award of a graduate degree.

Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs
are nominated by the representative department chairper-
son, approved by the college dean, and appointed by the
Dean of the Graduate School. Only members of the
Graduate Faculty may be appointed to supervisory com-
mittees. The chairperson must be from the major depart-
ment. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio
member of all supervisory committees.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a
thesis must consist of at least two members selected from
the Graduate Faculty. The supervisory committee for a
master's degree without a thesis may consist of one
member of the Graduate Faculty who advises the student
and oversees the program. If a minor is designated, the
committee must include one Graduate Faculty member
from the minor department.
Language Requirements.-(1) The requirement of a
reading knowledge of a foreign language is at the discre-
tion of the department. The foreign language requirement
varies from department to department and the student
should check with the appropriate department for specific
information. (2) The ability to use the English language
correctly and effectively, as judged by the supervisory
committee, is required of all candidates.
Examination.-A final comprehensive examination 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.-AIl 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 Communica-
tion, 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
required 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 degree taken with a nonthesis option is

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. For
work 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 consultthe 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 library by the specified date.
After the thesis is accepted, these two copies will be
permanently bound and deposited in the University Li-
braries.
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
graduation. 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 after
the student has been admitted to the Graduate School but
in no case later than the end of the second semester of
study. The duties of the supervisory committee are to
advise the student, to check on the student's qualifications
and progress, to supervise the preparation of the thesis,
and to conduct the final examination.
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.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING

A student seeking a master's degree in the field of
engineering may become a candidate for the Master of
Engineering degree with or without thesis, provided such
a candidate has a bachelor's degree in engineering from an
ABET-accredited curriculum or has taken sufficient articu-
lation course work to meet the minimum requirements
specified by ABET. Students who do not meet this require-
ment may become candidates for the Master of Science
degree, provided they meet departmental requirements for
admission. The general intent in making this distinction is
to encourage those who are professionally oriented to seek
the Master of Engineering degree, and those who are more
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
professional practice in civil engineering. The degree
requirements include a minimum number of hours of
design and professional practice instruction at the gradu-
ate 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 Chair,
Department of Civil Engineering.
Work Required.-The minimum course work required
for the master's degree with thesis is 30 credits which may
include up to 6 credits of 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 the master's degrees without
thesis. The Deparment of Mechanical Engineering re-
quires a minimum of 33 credits of course work while
Environmental Engineering Sciences requires 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 authorized 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

comprehensive oral and/or written examination, adminis-
tered 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 pro-
gram adviser or a member of the supervisory committee.
If a minor is taken, another member selected from the
Graduate Faculty must be chosen from outside the major
department to represent the student's minor.
The requirement for an on-campus comprehensive
written examination also applies to the nonthesis option of
the Master of Science degree for students in the College of
Engineering.
Examination requirements for the Master of Science
degree are covered in the section Master of Arts and
Master of Science.
A Certificate Program in Manufacturing Systems En-
gineering has been established as an option for the Master
of Engineering degree of six departments: Aerospace
Engineering, Mechanics, and Engineering Science; Com-
puter and Information Science and Engineering; Electrical
and Computer Engineering; Industrial and Systems Engi-
neering; Materials Science and Engineering; and Me-
chanical Engineering. Qualification for the certificate
requires specified courses in manufacturing, 15 credits or
more of course work selected from an approved manufac-
turing systems engineering core, completion of a master's
thesis or project on a manufacturing-related topic, and
satisfactory completion of departmental Master of Engi-
neering requirements. In most cases, the manufacturing
courses will partially satisfy required and elective course
requirements stipulated by the home department.

MASTER OF FINE ARTS
The Master of Fine Arts degree is offered with majors in
art, creative writing, and theatre. The requirements for this
degree are the same as those for the Master of Arts with
thesis except that a minimum of 60 credits (48 for creative
writing) is required, including 6 to 10 credits in 6971
(Research for Master's Thesis). Students in art and theatre

Admission.-Applicants requesting admission to any of
the programs should have an earned baccalaureate degree
in the same or a closely related field from an accredited
institution.
Students must fulfill the requirements of their discipline,
as well as the Graduate School admission criteria. In cases
where the undergraduate degree is not in the area chosen
for graduate study, the student must demonstrate a level of
achievement fully equivalent to the bachelor's degree in
the graduate field concerned. A candidate found deficient
in certain undergraduate areas will be required to remove
the deficiencies by successful completion of appropriate
undergraduate courses.
In addition, candidates in art or theatre are required to
submit slides and/or a portfolio of the creative work, or to
audition, prior to being accepted into the program. In
creative writing, the candidate must submit 2 short stories,
2 chapters of a novel, or 6 to 10 poems.
Three years of work in residence (two for creative
writing) are usually necessary to complete degree require-
ments. If deficiencies must be removed, the residency
could be longer.
See additional information listed under the Fields of
Instruction section of this catalog for Art, English, and
Theatre.
Art.-The MFA degree with a major in art is designed for
those who wish to prepare themselves as teachers of art in
colleges and universities and for those who wish to attain
a professional level of proficiency in studio work. Special-
ization is offered in the studio areas of ceramics, creative
photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture,
graphic design, electronic intermedia, and multimedia.

room sessions and various distance learning techniques.
The program consists of 12 courses of 3 credits each (36
hour total). Students take 1 course at a time, with each
course lasting approximately 8 weeks. On-campus class-
room sessions are held Friday-Sunday every 2 months,
with 1 Saturday session in the intervening month. Other
course requirements are completed via distance learning.

programs. There are master's programs through the Col-
lege of Health Professions in occupational therapy, physi-
cal therapy, and rehabilitation counseling.
In occupational therapy, applicants must have com-
pleted an accredited entry-level occupational therapy
program. The master's program includes satisfactory
completion of a minimum of 36 credits of academic
course work. This nonthesis degree requires the candidate
to complete an approved research project and pass an oral
examination as part of the degree requirements. This one-
year program is designed to prepare occupational thera-
pists for leadership roles in clinical practice, administra-
tion, or education.

SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION
Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the
development of the competencies needed for a specific
type of employment. Programs are available in the various
areas of concentration within the Departments of Counse-
lor Education, Educational Leadership, Foundations of
Education, Instruction and Curriculum, and Special Edu-
cation.
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 imme-
diately 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
selected by the department chairperson. A thesis is not
required; however, each program will include continuing

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


DOCTOR OF EDUCATION

A doctoral candidate is expected to achieve 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
Counselor Education, Educational Leadership, Founda-
tions of Education, Instruction and Curriculum, and Spe-
cial Education.
Admission to a program of work leading to the degree
of Doctor of Education requires admission to the Graduate
School.
A minimum of 90 credits beyond the bachelor's degree
is required for the doctoral degree. Master's degrees
outside the major require departmental petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School. All master's degrees counted
in the 90-hour minimum must have been earned within
the last seven years. No more than 30 hours of a master's
degree from another institution will be transferred to a
doctoral program. All courses beyond the master's degree
taken at another institution, to be applied toward the
Doctor of Education degree, must be taken at an 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
required. Minor work may be completed in any depart-
ment, other than the major department, approved for
master's or doctoral degree programs as listed in this
catalog. If one minor is selected, at least 15 credits of work
therein will be required; if two minors are chosen, one
minor must include at least 12 credits of course work, the
other at least 5 credits. At least 12 credits counted in a
minor must be at the 5000 level or higher.
Courses in physical education approved by the College


have the approval of the student's supervisory committee.
The College of Education Graduate Faculty will expect the
candidate to be prepared to answer questions, at the time
of the oral examination, in any of the areas chosen.


Admission to Candidacy.-


Admission to candidacy for


the degree of Doctor of Education requires successful
completion of the qualifying examinations and approval of
a dissertation topic. Recommendation to the Graduate
School for admission to candidacy is based on the action
of the supervisory committee. Application for admission to
candidacy should be made as soon as the qualifying
examination has been passed and a dissertation topic has
been approved by the student's supervisory committee.
Qualifying Examination.-The applicant is recom-
mended for the qualifying examination by the supervisory
committee after completion of sufficient course work.
The examination, administered on campus by the
student's major department, consists of (1) a general
section; (2) a field of specialization section; (3) examina-
tion in the minor or minors, where involved; and (4) an
oral examination conducted by the applicant's supervi-
sory committee.
At least five faculty must be present for the oral portion
of the examination; however, only members of the
supervisory committee are required to sign the Admission
to Candidacy form.
If the student fails the qualifying examination, a re-
examination will not be given unless recommended for
special reasons by the supervisory committee and 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.

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 circumstances. The AAU guidelines con-
tained 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 pu
beyond the pre-review. Timely submission of a
or copyright applications should be the result of
communication between investigators and
throughout the course of the project.
4. There should be no restriction on partici
nonclassified sponsored research programs on
of citizenship.
5. Students should not be delayed in the fina
of their dissertations by agreements involving pu
delays.

Cancellation and Reinstatement


The University shall cancel the registration of any
student who has not paid any portion of his/her fee
liability by the published deadlines.
Reinstatement shall require the approval of the Univer-
sity and payment of all delinquent liabilities including the
$100.00 late registration and $100.00 late payment fees.
A student whose registration has been cancelled for
nonpayment of fees must request reinstatement.
In the event a student has not paid the entire fee liability
by the published deadlines, the University shall tempo-
rarily suspend further academic progress of the student.
This will be accomplished by placing a financial hold on
the student's record which will prevent receipt of grades,
the release of transcripts, the awarding of diplomas, the
granting of loans and/or registration, the use of University
facilities and/or services, and admission to University
functions, including Athletic Association events, until the


account has been settled


in full.


Deferral of Registration and Tuition Fees

A fee deferment allows students to pay fees after the fee
payment deadline without being subject to either cancel-
lation of registration for nonpayment of fees prior to the
established deadline, or the late payment fee. The Uni-
versity may award fee deferments to students in the
following circumstances:
1. Students whose state or federal financial assistance
is delayed due to circumstances beyond the control of the
student.
2. Students receiving veterans' educational assistance
benefits.
3. Students for whom formal arrangements have been
made with the University for payment by an acceptable
third-party donor.
This deferment covers tuition fee payments only and
must be established by the fee payment deadline. Fee
deferments are granted based on information from the
Office of Student Financial Affairs (financial aid defer-
ments) or the Office of the University Registrar (veterans).

through continuing education).


The certificate will waive


the matriculation fee only; the student must pay the
balance of the fees by the fee payment deadline.
4. Persons 60 years of age or older are entitled to a
waiver of fees for audited courses (up to 6 credit hours),
as provided by Section 240.235(4), Florida Statutes.
The Non-Florida Student Financial Aid fee may not be
waived for students receiving an out-of-state fee waiver.


REFUND OF FEES


Tuition fees will be refunded


in full


in the circum-


stances noted below:


1. If notice of withdrawal from the University is
approved prior to the end of the drop/add period and
written documentation is received from the student.
2. Credit hours dropped during the drop/add period.
3. Courses cancelled by the University.
4. Involuntary call to active military duty.
5. Death of the student or member of his/her immedi-
ate family (parent, spouse, child, sibling).
6. Illness of the student of such severity or duration, as
confirmed in writing by the physician, that completion of
the semester is precluded.
7. Exceptional circumstances, upon approval of the
University President or his/her designee(s).

A refund of 25 percent of the total fees paid (less late
fees) is available if written notice of withdrawal of
enrollment from the University is approved prior to the
end of the fourth week of classes for full semesters, or a


proportionately


shorter period of time for shorter terms,


and written documentation is received from the student.
First-time students at the University of Florida who
withdraw on or before the 60% point of the enrollment
period are eligible to receive a pro-rata refund of all


tuition and fees,


including University housing charges.


An administrative fee of 5% or $100 (whichever is lower)


will be assessed upon the amount of the total


assessed to the student.

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

SPECIAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS / 41


The library home page (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu) pro-
vides a wealth of information about the Libraries as well
as links to a vast array of resources. The Libraries are
integrating electronic collections and services with tradi-
tional offerings. From the home page it is possible to
connect to the full text of articles in hundreds of journals
as well as increasing numbers of books. Indexes, ab-
stracts, and other reference resources-including more
than 60 FirstSearch databases, the Lexis-Nexus Universe,
and the Web of Science-are available.
Collections Web sites provide guides to subject litera-
ture and links to key resources and pertinent Web sites.
The library home page provides links to the pages of
individual campus libraries, lists library training opportu-
nities, and provides a great deal of information on services
and policies. Also available are electronic forms which
allow students to make suggestions, renew materials,
initiate interlibrary loan requests, and recall materials
charged to other borrowers.
The library home page provides a link to WebLUIS
which contains the University of Florida library catalog.
The on-line catalog includes virtually all of the collections
except for some special archival, map, and document
collections that must still be accessed through catalogs
and finding aids at the collection location. WebLUIS list
materials currently on course reserve and provides links to
a growing number of these materials that are available in
electronic form. WebLUIS also contains the catalogs of
the other State University System libraries and provides
access to the catalogs of libraries in other states and foreign
nations.

MAJOR ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTATION
CENTER (MAIC)
The Major Analytical Instrumentation Center (MAIC)
was established in 1982 to help make available complex
modern analytical instrumentation and to promote its
efficient usage on the campus and in the state. This is
accomplished by coordinating campuswide usage, help-
ing to provide resources for maintenance, upgrading
existing instruments and developing new techniques,
planning purchases of major new instruments, training
and supervising users, and providing professional scien-
tists to supervise the solution of individual problems.
The instruments involved include several electron mi-
croscopes (TEM, SEM, AEM) with full analytical and
imaging capabilities, instruments directed toward surface
analysis (i.e., AES, XPS).
Education and training are achieved by a variety of


The overall aim of the MAIC is thus to make possible the
solution of any scientific or technological problem that
requires state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation and to
make these capabilities accessible to all University and
state personnel. Cooperation with state industries is also
encouraged where this is legal and appropriate.
The administration and professional staff of the MAIC
are located in 107 Mechanical Engineering Laboratory
where further information may be obtained upon request.

The Museum operates as a center of research in anthro-
pology and natural science. Under the director are three
administrative units: Office of the Director, responsible for
administrative oversight as well as fund-raising and devel-
opment; Department of Natural History, houses the state's
natural history collections and is staffed by scientists and
support personnel concerned with the study of modern
and fossil plants and animals, and historic and prehistoric
people and their cultures; Exhibits and Public Programs in
Powell Hall, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of
natural history through exhibits and educational pro-
grams. The scientific and educational faculty (curators)
hold appointments in appropriate academic departments.
Through these appointments, they participate in both
undergraduate and graduate teaching programs.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is part of
the Department of Natural History of the Florida Museum
of Natural History. The combined Sarasota and Gainesville
holdings in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum of Ento-
mology as the largest in the western hemisphere and the
premier Lepidoptera research center in the world. The

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

America and the Caribbean.
Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Studies. -
The master's degree offered through the Center is avail-
able in two versions, both of which require a 15-credit
major concentration. The disciplinary concentration em-
phasizes 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, Econom-
ics, Food and Resource Economics, Geography, History,
Political Science, Romance Languages and Literatures
(Spanish), or Sociology. This option is especially suited to
the needs of students who wish to obtain a well-rounded
background in Latin American Studies before pursuing
the Ph.D. in a specialized discipline.
The topical concentration clusters course work and
research around a thematic field focusing on contempo-
rary Latin American problems. Students may concentrate
in Andean studies, Brazilian studies, Caribbean studies,

46 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 production, 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 knowl-
edge of both the biological and social aspects of tropical
agriculture. Students entering the program will receive
guidance from members of the CTA Steering Committee
regarding course work and language preparation appro-
priate for careers in international agricultural develop-
ment.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credit hours. The
"typical" certificate program will consist of 12 to 24
credits. These hours may, with approval from supervisory
committees, also count toward the M.S. or Ph.D. Students
in the CTA program are required to demonstrate profi-
ciency 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 tht

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.
Other Activities.--The Center seeks a broad dissemina-
tion of knowledge about tropical agriculture through the
sponsoring of conferences, short courses, and seminars
featuring leading authorities on the tropics; publication of
books, monographs, and proceedings; and through acqui-
sition of materials for the library and the data bank.


BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

The University of Florida Marine Laboratory at Seahorse
Key is located 57 miles west of Gainesville on the Gulf
Coast, 3 miles offshore, opposite Cedar Key. Facilities
include a 20x40-foot research and teaching building and
a 10-room residence, with 2 kitchens and a dinin-lnunoe.


turtles. Researchers at the Center, in collaboration with
students and faculty of various departments, take an
interdisciplinary approach to address the complex prob-
lems of sea turtle biology and conservation. Scientists from
the Center have investigated questions of sea turtle biology
around the world, from the molecular level to the global
level, from studies of population structure based on
mitochondrial DNA to the effects of ocean circulation
patterns on the movements and distribution of sea turtles.
Long-term field studies of the Center are primarily con-
ducted at two research stations in the Bahamas and the
Azores. For further information, contact the Director,
Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research, 223 Bartram.
The Whitney Laboratory (WL) is the institute for marine
biomedical research and biotechnology of the University
of Florida. Since its founding in 1974, the Whitney
Laboratory, near St. Augustine, has been dedicated to the
use of marine organisms for solving fundamental problems
in experimental marine biology.
The academic staff of the Laboratory consists of 10
permanent faculty members, with 30 to 40 associates,
students, and visiting scientists. Dr. Peter A.V. Anderson
is the interim director.
Fields of research at the WL include chemosensory and
visual physiology and biochemistry, control of electrical
excitability, developmental and cell biology, molecular
biology, toxicology, and peptide pharmacology. Research
animals range phylogenetically from jellyfish to aquatic
vertebrates. The common theme unifying this diversity is
a focus on communication between cells and tissues, i.e.,
the interactions of cell membranes with signaling mol-
ecules.
Research at the Whitney Laboratory attracts graduate
students and visiting scientists from across the U.S. and
from abroad. Students enroll in the graduate programs of
the College of Medicine and the Departments of Fisheries
and Aquatic Sciences, Zoology. Their course work (in
Gainesville) and their dissertation research (at the Whitney
Lab) are guided by scientists from the WL who are
graduate faculty members of University of Florida teach-
ing departments. An undergraduate research training
program at the Laboratory is sponsored by both private
and governmental agencies.
The Laboratory is situated on a narrow barrier island,
with both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Water-
way within a few hundred feet of the facility. The campus
is in the town of Marineland, about 18 miles south of St.
Augustine, and 80 miles east of Gainesville.

CENTER FOR AERONOMY AND OTHER
ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES
The Center (ICAAS) is a community of scholars drawn
from many disciplines represented at the University of
Florida who are seeking solutions to problems related to
anthropogenic emissions to the atmosphere. Pollution
prevention was the central approach chosen in a broad
interdisciplinary effort initiated by ICAAS in 1970. In
effect, its purpose was to transfer successful industrial and
military experience with preventative maintenance into
the environmental arena. Faculty members from societal,
medical, engineering, and atmospheric science disci-
plines have been associated with ICAAS.
The first major interdisciplinary study, initiated in 1972,
was on determining the biological impacts of stratospheric
ozone depletion. The next major interdisciplinary study
was a coal burning issues project awarded in 1979 to
explore options to wean Florida from its excessive reliance
on imported oil without increasing emission of pollutants
or greenhouse gases. Research on co-combustion of coal
and natural gas for oil backout and pollution prevention
evolved in 1981 from this effort. In 1985 an industrial
scale boiler at Tacachale, an institution in Gainesville for
developmentally disabled persons, was made available
for co-combution studies. The following year the Center
acquired by donation an institutional incinerator that has
subsequently been used fora numberof multifuel combus-
tion and toxic minimization studies.
Studies at Tacachale (an Indian word meaning to build
a better fire) strongly support the use of "green technolo-
gies" or "cradle to grave" environmental perspectives in
conjunction with clean combustion technologies. This
work led ICAAS to form the Clean Combustion Technol-
ogy Laboratory (CCTL) with the joint auspices of the
Department of Mechanical Engineering. Recently, the
CCTL has undertaken fire protection research to find
replacements for halon fire suppressants. Most recently,
the CCTL has embarked upon gasification studies for
combustion turbine applications.
For further information on these and other research
programs that address anthropogenic emission and ther-
mal energy problems, write the Director, Professor A.E.S.
Green, ICAAS, Space Sciences Research Building.

ENGINEERING RESEARCH CENTER FOR
PARTICLE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Particle technology deals with the production, charac-
terization, modification, handling, and utilization of a
wide variety of particles, in both dry and wet conditions.
Industries impacted by particle handling as a core technol-
ogy include advanced materials, environmental, chemi-
cal, mineral, energy, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and
food processing.
Manufacturing processes are moving toward automa-
tion and control for consistent product quality at competi-
tive cost. Automation and control of processes involving
particulate (multi-phase) systems are not only complex,
but the information required to implement such systems
(e.g., on-line analysis, reliable process monitoring, and
predictive models) is yet to be developed.
Advances in particulate processing are further compli-
cated by the lack of adequate education of engineers and
scientists in particle science and technology. Therefore,
the vision of the Center is to discover, integrate, and share
fundamental knowledge of properties and behavior of
particulate materials to enable invention and development
of innovative particulate processing technologies for new
products and devices of engineered particulate systems to
benefit the national economy and contribute to the quality
of the environment and public health.
The Center will realize this vision by achieving the
following research, technology transfer, and education
goals: create the underlying scientific knowledge, and
invent and demonstrate the technological feasibility of
innovative methodologies and systems governing particu-
late processes; facilitate the transfer of research discover-
ies, theories, and inventions between the ERC and indus-
try; develop and implement an interdisciplinary education
program that will produce well-prepared scientists and
engineers in the field and foster the goals of the ERC. This
vision when realized will enhance the competitiveness of
U.S. industry by enabling the development of efficient
processing and handling of particulate systems in existing

representatives from business,


interview program with
industry, government,


and education is conducted by the Center. These major
employers come to campus seeking graduating students
in most career fields. Graduate students are encouraged
to register early and to participate in the on-campus
interview program. The Center also sponsors a number of
Career Days and Expos during the academic year, which
bring employers to campus to talk to students about
careers and jobs. These sessions are open to all majors
and are an ideal way for graduate students to make
contact with potential employers.
The Center also hosts Graduate and Professional School
Day the first week in November, bringing to campus
representatives from 35 to 45 colleges and universities
around the country. Students may gather information
and ask questions about various graduate and profes-
sional education programs offered by these institutions.
The Center also provides reproduction and distribution
services of professional placement files (qualifications
records, vitae, resumes, and personal references). A
modest charge is assessed to cover labor and materials for
copy services and mailing of these credential packages to
employers.


EDITORIAL ASSISTANCE AND
INFORMATION

The Graduate School Editorial Office provides a Guide
for Preparing Theses and Dissertations to assist the
student in the preparation of the manuscript and offers
suggestions and advice on such matters as the prepara-
tion and reproduction of illustrative materials, the treat-
ment of special programs, the use of copyrighted mate-
rial, and how to secure a copyright for a dissertation. The
following procedures apply to the Graduate School's
editorial services to students.
1. The responsibility for acceptable English in a thesis
or dissertation, as well as the originality and acceptable
quality of the content, lies with the student and the
supervisory committee.
2. The Graduate School editorial staff act only in an
advisory capacity but will answer questions regarding
correct grammar, sentence structure, and acceptable
forms of presentation.
3. The editorial staff will examine a limited portion of
the final rough draft and make recommendations con-
cerning the form of the thesis or dissertation before the
final typing.
4. After the initial submission of the dissertation in final


form, the Editorial Office staff check the format
stock, and pagination and read portions of the
general usage, references, and bibliographica

confidentiality of information obtained by a University
employee in an official University capacity may result in

Based on current medical information concerning risk
of infection, the University does not isolate persons with
HIV infection or AIDS from other individuals in the
educational or work setting. Furthermore, the University
supports the continued participation, to the fullest extent
reasonably possible, of these individuals in the campus
education/work environment.
It is also the policy of the University to provide educa-


tion which seeks to prevent the spread of HIV


infection.


Those at risk for HIV infection are encouraged to get
tested; those who are infected are urged to seek treatment.
With current advances in HIV/AIDS treatment, early
intervention can be crucial to maintaining well being and
delaying complications of illness.
In keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the
University considers HIV/AIDS to be a disability. Existing
support services can be utilized by students or employees
who are disabled by HIV infection or AIDS.


UNIVERSITY COUNSELING CENTER
The University Counseling Center offers a variety of
counseling services to currently enrolled students and
their spouses/partners. The Center is staffed by psycholo-
gists and counselors to aid in the growth and development
of each student and to assist students in getting the most out
of their college experience. Services offered at the Center
include the following:
Counseling.-Individual, couples, and group counsel-
ing is available to help students with personal, career, and
academic concerns. Appointments to see a counselor may
be made in person at 301 Peabody Hall. There is an initial

ing immediate help are seen on a nonappointment emer-
gency basis. Counseling interviews are confidential. Call

The biomedical engineering (BME) program is interdis-
ciplinary, focusing on four principal areas: biomaterials,
biomechanics, cellular and tissue engineering, and bio-
medical imaging. Partnering with engineering in the BME
program are several clinical departments in the College of
Medicine.
The College of Engineering administers the program. An
