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
of American Universities. Its faculty and staff are dedi-
cated to the common pursuit of the University's threefold
mission: education, research, and service.
Teaching-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
University of Florida's academic disciplines and
multidisciplinary centers and represent the University's
obligation to lead and serve the needs of the nation, all of
Florida's citizens, and the public and private educational
systems of Florida, by pursuing and disseminating new
knowledge while building upon the past.
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 inter-
national recognition for its initiatives and achievement in
promoting human values and improving the quality of life.

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 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 this university recognizes no limits on its intellec-
tual boundaries, and our faculty and students remain free
to teach and learn, to explore wherever the mind and
imagination lead, we live in a world with limits and
constraints. Out of the conflict between intellectual
aspirations and the limitations of environment comes the
definition of the University's goals.

Teaching.-American colleges and universities share the
fundamental 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 transfor-
mation of mind through learning, and the launching of a
lifetime of intellectual growth: these goals remain central


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
degrees, American university undergraduate education
still rests on the fundamental knowledge of the liberal arts
and sciences.
In our academic world we recognize two rather
imprecisely defined categories of higher education: col-
leges and universities. The traditional American college
specializes in a carefully crafted four-year undergraduate
program, generally focused on the arts and sciences.
Universities extend the range of this undergraduate educa-
tion to include advanced or graduate study leading to the
Ph.D. Most American universities also include a variety
of undergraduate and graduate professional programs and
master's degree programs. The University of Florida
shares these traditions. As an American university, we
have a major commitment to undergraduate education as
the foundation of our academic organization, and we
pursue graduate education for the Ph.D. and advanced
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 mean?
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 to 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, land grant,
research), then we fall into a group of perhaps the best 15
in this country.
Public.-We exist thanks to the commitment and invest-
ment of the people of the State of Florida. Generations of
tax dollars constructed the facilities we enjoy and have
paid the major portion of our operating budget. The
graduates of this institution, educated with tax dollars,
provide 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
3





4 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 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. Resource limits, human or financial, may
constrain us from 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 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 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.

THE GRADUATE SCHOOL/ 5


Graduate education is an integral component of a major
research university that impacts education at all levels.
The mission of graduate education at the University of
Florida is to produce individuals with advanced knowledge
in their fields, who appreciate learning and are constant
learners, and who are prepared to address creatively issues
of significance to the local and global community for
improving the quality of life. Essential to this mission is an
environment that fosters

'4 effective transmission of knowledge for future
generations.

41 inquiry and critical analysis.

4 acquisition of skills contributing to success and
leadership in academic and creative arenas and in
the world of practice.

I4 application of that knowledge in service to Florida,
the nation, and the international community.


VISION

The vision is a university internationally recognized for its
graduates, graduate faculty, and scholarly achievements.
This university produces intellectually energized individuals
who excel at future careers in diverse settings, and who can
provide bold leadership in new directions. Important signs
of this recognition include

graduates recognized for strength of preparation in
their chosen discipline, for abilities to solve prob-
lems in new environments, and for high standards
of excellence in scholarly activity and professional
practice.

S significant scholarly, creative achievements and
service that contribute to improvement of human
society and the natural environment.

IV a highly qualified, diverse student population.

I strong disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs
that prepare graduates to assume their roles in a
changing world.

1 evidence of service in their disciplines by students
and faculty at state, national, and international
levels.


The Graduate School consists of the Dean, who is also
Vice President for Research; Senior Associate Dean; the
Graduate Council; and the Graduate Faculty. General
policies and standards of the Graduate School are estab-
lished 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 Uni-
versity and for the coordination of the graduate programs
of the various colleges and divisions of the University. The
responsibility for the detailed operations of graduate pro-
grams is vested in the individual colleges, schools, divi-
sions, 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 beingthe 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 academic unit (department and/or col-
lege) in which the graduate program is located with the
approval of the graduate dean.
No faculty member may serve on supervisory commit-
tees or direct master's theses and doctoral dissertations
without having been appointed to the Graduate Faculty.
The level of duties for each Graduate Faculty member is
determined by the academic unit.


HISTORY

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 1997-98, the total number of
graduate degrees awarded was 2,403 in more than 100
fields. The proportion of Ph.D. degrees, after the initial
rapid growth, remained relatively static during the early
1980s but increased significantly between 1987-88 and
1993-94, growing from 304 to 424. In 1997-98, the
University of Florida awarded 452 Ph.D. degrees.

8 / GENERAL INFORMATION


ADMISSION TO THE

GRADUATE SCHOOL

Application for Admission.-Admission forms and infor-
mation concerning admission procedures should be ob-
tained from the department of interest. This includes the on-
line application, the HTML application to download and
mail, or the regular application by mail. Prospective
students are urged to apply for admission as early as possible
and to utilize the on-line application. For some departments
deadlines for receipt of admission applications may be
earlier than those stated in the current University Calendar;
prospective students should check with the appropriate
department. Applications that meet minimum standards are
referred to the graduate selection committees of the various
colleges and departments for approval or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department,
the prospective student must satisfy the requirements of the
department as well as those of the Graduate School.
Admission to some programs is limited by the resources
available.

General Requirements.-The Graduate School, Univer-
sity of Florida, requires both a minimum grade average of B
for all upper-division undergraduate work and a minimum
Verbal-Quantitative total score of 1000 on the General Test
of the Graduate Record Examination. For some depart-
ments, and in more advanced levels of graduate study,
undergraduate averages or Graduate Record Examination
scores above those stated for the Graduate School may be
required. Inquiries about specific requirements should be
addressed to the department in question. Some colleges and
departments require a reading 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 department, and approved by the
Dean of the Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is dependent
upon the presentation of a baccalaureate degree from an
accredited college or university. Two copies of the official
undergraduate transcript should accompany all applica-
tions-one for the department and one for the Registrar.
These transcripts must be received directly from the registrar
of the institution in which the work was 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 excellent
letters of recommendation from colleagues, satisfactory
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 marital status, disability, or age in admission or
access to its programs and activities. The Title IX Coordina-
tor is Dr. Jacquelyn D. Hart, 145 Tigert Hall, (352)392-
6004.

COMPUTER REQUIREMENT

Access to and on-going use of a computer are required of
all students to complete their degree programs successfully.
The University expects each student entering the University
and continuing students to acquire computer hardware and
software appropriate to the degree program. Competency
in the basic use of a computer is a requirement for
graduation; class assignments may require use of a com-
puter, academic advising and registration can be done by
computer, and University correspondence is often sent via
e-mail.
While the University offers limited access to computers
through its computer labs, most students are expected to
purchase or lease a computer that is capable of dial-up or
network connection to the Internet, graphical access to the
World Wide Web, and productivity functions such as word
processing and spreadsheet calculation. Sample minimum
computer configurations are provided below.
Individual colleges will provide additional requirements
and recommendations. Consult the appropriate college at
their web pages or the University web page at http://
www.circa.ufl.edu/computers.

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 Warrington College of Business Administration may
substitute satisfactory scores on the Graduate Management
Admission Test (GMAT) for the Graduate Record Examina-
tion. Students applying for admission to the Master of
Business Administration (MBA) program must submit satis-
factory scores on the GMAT. Applicants should contact the
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for addi-
tional 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).

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

All international students seeking admission to the Gradu-
ate School are required to submit satisfactory scores on the
GRE General Test and a score of at least 550 on the paper-
based and 213 on the computer-based TOEFL (Test of
English as a Foreign Language) with the following excep-
tions:
1. International students whose native tongue is English
or who have studied at a United States college or university
for one year or more need not submit TOEFL scores but must
submit satisfactory scores on the General Test of the Gradu-
ate Record Examination before their applications for admis-
sion can be considered.
2. All international students applying for admission forthe
Master of Business Administration program must submit
satisfactory scores from the Graduate Management Admis-
sion Test before their applications for admission will be
considered.
International 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 exami-
nation. 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 appropri-
ate 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 assign-
ments. Students who score 55 or above are allowed to teach
in the classroom, laboratory, or other appropriate instruc-
tional activity. Those who score 45 to 50 are allowed to
teach on the condition that they enroll concurrently in ENS
5502, a course designed to help their interpersonal and
public speaking communication skills. Students who fail to
score45 points may not be appointed to teach. To raise their
scores on the TSE, they are advised to take ENS 4501, a
course to improve general oral language skills. They must
subsequently submit a TSE or SPEAK score of 45 or higher
to be appointed to teach, and they come under the guide-
lines described above.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing Ser-
vice, Princeton, NJ 08540, for registration forms and other
information concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT, and GRE.
Students may register for the locally administered SPEAK test
with the Academic Spoken English Office, 1349 Norman
Hall.

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 by federal laws and regulations. The designated
coordinator for compliance with Section 504 of the Reha-
bilitation Act of 1973, as amended, is James Costello,
Assistant Dean for Student Services, 202 Peabody Hall,
(352)392-1261. The designated coordinator for the Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is Kenneth J. Osfield,
Assistant in the Office of Academic Affairs, 37 Tigert Hall,
(352)392-7056, (352)846-1046 (TDD).
The Office of Student Services provides assistance for
students with disabilities. Services are varied depending on
individual needs and include, but are not limited to, special
campus orientation, registration assistance, help in securing
auxiliary learning aids, and assistance in general University
activities. Students with disabilities are encouraged to
contact this office.

VETERANS ADMINISTRATION AND SOCIAL
SECURITY ADMINISTRATION BENEFITS
INFORMATION

The University of Florida is approved for the education
and training of veterans under all public laws now in effect,
i.e., Chapter 31, Title 38, U.S. Code (Disabled Veterans),
Chapter 32, Title 38, U.S. Code (Veterans Educational
Assistance Program), Chapter 34, Title 38, U.S. Code (Cold
War G.I. Bill), and Chapter 35, Title 38, U.S. Code
(Children of Deceased or Disabled Veterans). Students who
may be eligible for educational benefits under any Veterans
Administration (VA) program are urged to contacttheir local
VA representative as soon as they are accepted. Students
expecting to receive benefits under one of these program
must file an application for benefits with the Office of the
University Registrar. No certification can be made until the
application is on file. Benefits are determined by the
Veterans Administration; the University certifies according
to VA rules and regulations.




10/ GENERAL INFORMATION


Inquiries relating to Social Security benefits should be
directed to the student's local Social Security Office. The
Office of the University Registrar will submit enrollment
certificates issued by the Social Security Administration for
students eligible to receive educational benefits under the
Social Security Act, providing the graduate student registers
for 9 semester hours or more during fall or spring semester
or 8 semester hours during summer term C.
A full-time graduate load for VA or Social Security
benefits is 9 hours per semester.

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 abilities to
pursue graduate work at the University of Florida if previous
grade records or Graduate Record Examination scores are
on the borderline of acceptability or when specific 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. The admission requirements
for postbaccalaureate enrollment are a 2.0 grade point
average and a score of 550 on the Test of English as a Foreign
Language if the applicant is from a non-English speaking
country. Postbaccalaureate enrollment is offered for the
following reasons: (1) to provide a means for students not
seeking a graduate degree to enroll in courses-included in
this category would be students who change their profes-
sional goals or wish to expand their academic backgrounds
and (2) to accommodate students who do intend to enter a
graduate program at some future date, but need a substantial
number of prerequisite courses.
Postbaccalaureate students may enroll in graduate courses
but the work taken will not normally be 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 15 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 ortenure-accruing
lines, as designated by the Florida Administrative Code,
normally may not pursue graduate degrees from this institu-
tion. 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 graduate degrees at the
University of Florida. Any other exceptions to this policy
must be approved by the Graduate Council. Such excep-
tions, 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 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 contact the 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 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 re-
quirements of the major department. Ignorance of a rule
does not constitute a basis for waiving that rule. Any
exceptions to the policies stated in the Graduate Catalog
must be approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but 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 committee chair.




GENERAL REGULATIONS / 11


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).
Directory information for a student that can be released to
the public is limited to name, class, college and major; dates
of attendance; degrees) earned; honors and awards received;
local, permanent, and e-mail addresses; telephone number;
most recent previous educational institution attended; partici-
pation in officially recognized activities and sports; and the
weight and height of members of athletic teams.
Currently enrolled students must contact the appropriate
agency(ies) to restrict release of directory information. The
Office of the University Registrar, the Division of Housing,
and University Personnel Services routinely release direc-
tory information to the public. In addition to requesting this
restriction from the Office of the University Registrar,
students who live on campus must also request this restric-
tion for the Division of Housing (next to Beaty Towers).
Students who are University employees also must request
this restriction from University Personnel Services.
Student educational records may be released without a
student's consent to school officials who have a legitimate
educational interest to access the records. "School official"
shall include
An employee, agent, or officer of the
University or State University System of
Florida in an administrative, supervisory,
academic or research, or support staff position;
Persons serving on university committees,
boards, and/or councils; and
Persons employed by or under contract to
the University to perform a special task,
such as an attorney or an auditor.
"Legitimate educational interest" shall mean any autho-
rized interest or activity undertaken in the name of the
University for which access to an educational record is
necessary or appropriate to the operation of the University
or to the proper performance of the educational mission of
the University.
The University may also disclose information from a
student's educational records without a student's consent to
either individuals or entities permitted such access under
applicable federal and state law.
Students have the right to review their own educational
records for information and to determine accuracy. A photo
I.D. or other equivalent documentation or personal recog-
nition by the custodian of record will be required before
access is granted. Parents of a dependent student, as
defined by the Internal Revenue Service, have these same
rights upon presentation of proof of the student's dependent
status.
If a student believes the educational record contains
information that is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of
his or her rights, the student may ask the institution to amend
the record. The UF Student Guide outlines the procedures
for challenging the content of a student record as well as the
policies governing access to and maintenance of student
records.


STUDENT CONDUCT CODE
Students enjoy the rights and privileges that accrue to
membership in a university community and are subject to
the responsibilities that accompany that membership. In
order to have a system of effective campus governance, it is
incumbent upon all members of the campus community to
notify appropriate officials of any violations of regulations
and to assist in their enforcement. The University's conduct
regulations are available to all students on the Internet at
http://oss.ufl.edu/stg/and are setforth in Florida Administra-
tive Code. Questions should be directed to the Dean of
Students Office in 202 Peabody Hall, (352)392-1261.

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 with stipends of $3,150 or
greater, is 12 credits. The minimum full-time registration
requirement is reduced for those students who are graduate
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 Univer-
sity 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 semesters and
two for summer.

COURSES AND CREDITS
Undergraduate courses (1000-3999) may not be used as
any part of the graduate degree requirements, including the
requirement for a period of concentrated study. One 4000-
level course outside the major may be counted toward the
graduate degree with written justification by the student's
supervisory committee chair and prior approval of the
department chair, college dean, and the Graduate School.
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.




12 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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: immediately
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 approved
by the Graduate School, are permitted after the Registrar's
deadline.
Professional Work.-Graduate students may receive
credit toward their degrees for courses in professional
programs (e.g. J.D., D.V.M., or M.D.) when their advisers
and graduate coordinators certify that the course work is
appropriate for their programs and when the students
receive permission from the departments and colleges
offering the courses. A list of such courses for each student
must be filed with the Graduate School Records Office.


GRADES

The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+,
B, C+, C, and S. 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), 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 instructor 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. Students with less than a 3.0
GPA may not hold an assistantship or fellowship; the use of
I grades may putthat employment or fellowship in jeopardy.
Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Graduate
School cannot continue beyond one probationary semester
to approve students to continue assistantships and receive
fee payments unless they have an overall 3.0 or better GPA.


All grades of H and I must be removed prior to the
award of a graduate degree.


UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN
GRADUATE COURSES

Upper-division undergraduate students may enroll in
5000-level courses with the permission of the instructor.
Normally, a student must have a grade point average of at
least 3.0. To enroll in 6000-level courses, a student must
have senior standing, permission of the instructor, and an
upper-division grade point average of at least 3.0.
After a student has been accepted in the Graduate School,
up to 15 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 department and made as soon as the student is
admitted to a graduate program.


GRADUATE REGISTRATION IN
UNDERGRADUATE COURSES

The minimum number of credits required for a graduate
degree must be earned in graduate-level courses. An
exception may be made for one 4000-level course, outside
the major, with written justification by the student's super-
visory committee chair and prior approval of the department
chair, college dean, and the Graduate School. Graduate
students may take additional undergraduate courses, but
credits earned in these may not be counted toward the
minimum degree requirements.


CONCURRENT GRADUATE PROGRAMS

A graduate student who wishes to pursue degrees in two
programs concurrently must have the written approval of
the representative of each department involved and the
Dean of the Graduate School. Any student interested in
pursuing concurrent degrees should discuss the proposed
study with the Graduate School's Student Records staff prior
to applying for the programs. If the request is approved, the
student must be officially admitted to both programs through
regular procedures. If the student is approved to pursue two
master's programs, no more than six hours of course work
from one degree program may be applied toward meeting
the requirements for the second master's degree. These six
hours must be by petition to the Dean of the Graduate
School.


JOINT DEGREE PROGRAMS

Any graduate student wishing to participate in a joint
program must be admitted to both programs. Enrollment
in one program may precede enrollment in the other
according to time lines set by the approved program
proposal. A minimum of three semester hours registration
in the Graduate School in the fall or spring is required in the





JOINT DEGREE PROGRAMS / 13


term in which a student intends to graduate (minimum of
two semester hours in summer); this course work must be
credit that will apply toward the degree requirements.
The departments, schools, and colleges listed below are
approved to offer programs leading to the concurrent award
of advanced degrees. See the departmental graduate
coordinator for details.

COMBINED BACHELOR'S/MASTER'S DEGREE
PROGRAMS

The University of Florida offers a number of bachelor's/
master's programs for superior students in which 6 to 12
hours of graduate-level courses are counted for both de-
grees. The listing below is current at the time of printing.


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 (3.0) in all work attempted is, by definition,
unsatisfactory scholarship. In addition to an overall GPA of
3.0, a graduate student must also have a 3.0 GPA in his/her




14 / GENERAL INFORMATION


major (as well as in a minor if a minor is declared) at the time
of graduation.

CHANGE OF MAJOR OR COLLEGE
A graduate student who wishes to change colleges must
make formal application through the Office of the Univer-
sity Registrar and receive approval of the appropriate
department chairperson, college dean, and the Dean of the
Graduate School. Deadline dates for such changes as
specified in the current University Calendar must be met. A
graduate student who wishes to change major within a
college must submit a Change of Major form to the Graduate
School. The change must be approved by the current
department, the new department, and the college.

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 an
application and payment of fees. The examination times
and dates are listed in the University Calendar. Educational
Testing Service (ETS) no longer administers this examination
and does not accept application fees or issue tickets of
admission for these tests.

EXAMINATIONS
The student must be registered for an appropriate load
during the semester in which any examination is taken. The
student's supervisory committee is responsible for the 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 of the thesis or dissertation, in order for
the student to satisfy the requirements of the examination.
The written comprehensive examination forthe nonthesis
master's degree may be taken at a remote cite. All other
qualifying and final examinations for graduate students are
to be held on the University of Florida campus. Exceptions
to this policy are made only for certain graduate students
whose examinations are administered at the Agricultural
Research and Educational Centers or on the campuses of the
universities in the State University System.
With the approval of all members of the supervisory
committee, one committee member may be off-site at a
qualifying oral examination or at the final oral defense of the
dissertation or thesis, using modern communication tech-
nology to participate rather than being physically present.

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 distributed to the depart-
ments each semester and available on the Web at http://
web.ortge.ufl.edu/education/student.
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final
form, the student should obtain the Guide for Preparing
Theses and Dissertations from the Graduate School Editorial
Office (168, Grinter Hall, available on the Web at http://
web.ortge.ufl.edu/education/student) and should request a
records check in the Graduate Records Office (288 Grinter
Hall) to make certain that all requirements for graduation
have been fulfilled.
During the term in which the final examination is given
and during the term the degree is received, a student must
be registered for at least three hours that count toward his/
her graduate degree. Thesis students must be registered for
three hours of 6971 and doctoral students for three hours of
7980. Minimum registration for students taking their final
examinations or graduating during the summer terms is two
hours of appropriate credit as outlined above. Students must
also apply for the degree at the beginning of the final term.

AWARDING OF DEGREES
The Graduate School will authorize a candidate to be
awarded the degree appropriate to the course of study under
the following conditions (the details of which can be found
under the descriptions of the several degrees):
1. The candidate must have completed all course require-
ments, including an internship or practicum if required, in
the major and minor fields, observing time limits, limita-
tions 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.

MASTER'S DEGREES / 15


REQUIREMENTS FOR

MASTER'S DEGREES

GENERAL REGULATIONS
The following regulations represent those of the Graduate
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 program of course
work for a master's degree must be approved by the
student's adviser, supervisory committee, or faculty repre-
sentative of the department. No more than nine 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 department 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.
The work in the major field must be in courses numbered
5000 or above. For work outside the major, with written
justification by the student's supervisory committee chair
and prior approval of the department chair, college dean,
and the Graduate School, one 4000-level course may be
counted in the minimum requirements for the degree.
Degree Requirements.-Unless otherwise specified, for
any master's degree, the student must earn a minimum of 30
credits as a graduate student at the University of Florida, of
which no more than nine 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. At least
half of the required credits, exclusive of 6971, must be in the
field of study designated the major.
Transfer of Credit.-Only graduate (5000-7999) level
work to the extent of 9 semester hours, earned with a grade
of A, B+, or B, may be transferred from an institution
approved by the Graduate School or 15 semester hours 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 Gradu-
ate 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.
The responsibility rests with the supervisory committee
to base acceptance of graduate transfer credits on estab-
lished criteria for ensuring the academic integrity of course
work.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory com-
mittee should be appointed as soon as possible after the


student has been admitted to the Graduate School but in no
case later than the second semester of graduate study.
Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs are
nominated by the respective department chair, approved by
the college dean, and appointed by the Dean of the
Graduate School. The Dean of the Graduate School is an
ex-officio member of all supervisory committees. Only
those members of the faculty who have been appointed to
the Graduate Faculty may serve as members of a supervisory
committee. If a student takes less than 12 hours in the first
term, the deadline date to appoint a supervisory committee
is at the end of the term in which he/she has accumulated
12 or more credit hours or at the end of the second semester.
If a minor is designated for any degree, the committee must
include one member as the representative for that proposed
minor. If two minors are designated, two representatives
must be appointed to the committee.
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 requirementof a 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 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 must cover
at least the candidate's field of concentration and, in no
case, may it be schedule earlier than the term preceding the
semester in which the degree is to be awarded. The written
comprehensive examination for the nonthesis master's de-
gree may be taken at a remote site. All other examinations
must be held on campus with all participants.
Time Limitation.-All work, includingtransferred 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.





16 / GENERAL INFORMATION


The Graduate School requirement for a Master of Arts or
Master of Science degree taken with a nonthesis option is at
least 32 credits. No more than 6 S/U graded courses may
be counted in meeting the minimum credit requirements for
a nonthesis option. Students pursuing 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.
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 by an examining
committee recommended by the Dean of the College of
Engineering and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
School. This written comprehensive examination may be
taken at an off-campus site.
Theses.-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 library by the specified date. After
the thesis is accepted, these two copies will be permanently
bound and deposited in the University Libraries.
Electronic Theses.-The University of Florida is conduct-
ing a pilot project in which the final submission of the thesis
is electronic. This is part of a national electronic thesis and
dissertation (ETD) initiative which will make University of
Florida graduate research available on the World Wide
Web. More information is available at http://
www.circa.ufl.edu/etd/or from the Graduate School Edito-
rial Office.
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 permis-
sion 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 thatthe work was productive in and
by itself and warrants credit as a special problem or special
topic course.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory com-
mittee 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.
All supervisory committee members and the candidate
must be present at the final examination. At the time of the
examination, all committee members should sign the signa-
ture 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.
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.



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 Doctor of Philosophy 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. A minimum of 90
credit hours beyond the bachelor's degree is required for the
Ph.D. degree in all fields. All master's degrees counted in
the minimum must have been earned in the last seven years.
Transfer of Credit.-No more than 30 hours of a master's
degree from another institution will be transferred to a
doctoral program. 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 depart-
ment petitions the Dean of the Graduate School. 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 ap-
proved for graduate credit by the Graduate School of the
University of Florida. All courses to be transferred must be
letter graded with a grade of B or better and must be
demonstrated to relate directly to the degree being sought.
All such transfer requests must be made by petition of the
supervisory committee. The total number of credits (includ-
ing 30 for a prior master's degree) that may be transferred





REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 17


cannot exceed 45, and in all cases the student must
complete the qualifying examination at the University of
Florida. In addition, any prior graduate-level credits earned
at the University of Florida (e.g., a master's degree in the
same or a different discipline) may be transferred into the
doctoral program at the discretion of the supervisory com-
mittee and by petition to the Graduate School. In such
cases, it is essential that the petition demonstrate the
relevance of the prior course work to the degree presently
being sought.
Major.-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to
do the major work in a department or interdisciplinary unit
specifically approved for the offering of doctoral courses
and the supervision of dissertations. These fields are listed
under Graduate Programs.
Minor.-With the approval of the supervisory commit-
tee, the student may choose one or more minorfields. Minor
work may be completed in any department, other than the
major department, approved for master's or doctoral degree
programs as listed in this catalog. The collective 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 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 8 credits. Competence in the minor area may
be demonstrated through a written examination conducted
by the minor department or through the oral qualifying
examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not
be restricted to the courses of one department, provided that
the minor has a clearly stated objective and that the
combination of courses representing the minor shall be
approved by the Graduate School. This procedure is not
required for a departmental minor.


LEAVE OF ABSENCE

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


SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE

Supervisory committees are nominated by the depart-
ment chairperson, approved by the dean of the college
concerned, and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
School. The committee should be appointed as soon as
possible after the student has begun doctoral work and in
general no later than the end of the second semester of
equivalentfull-time study. The Dean of the Graduate School
is an ex-officio member of all supervisory 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 disserta-
tion 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. (See Examinations in the General Regulations
section of this catalog for variation in procedure.)
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 meet on campus when the dissertation is completed
and conduct the final oral examination to assure that the
dissertation is a piece of original research and a contribution
to knowledge. No fewer than four faculty members, includ-
ing all members of the supervisory committee shall be
present with the candidate for this examination. Only
members of the official supervisory committee may sign the
dissertation and they must approve the dissertation unani-
mously. (See Examinations in the General Regulations
section of this catalog for variation in procedure.)
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.
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 University-
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 for the Ph.D. is estab-
lished 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 gradu-
ate students who are beginning the study of a language. See
the current Schedule of Courses for the languages in which
this assistance is available.
The ability to use the English language correctly and
effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is
required of all candidates.





18/ GENERAL INFORMATION


CAMPUS RESIDENCE REQUIREMENT

Beyond the first 30 hours counted toward the doctoral
degree, students must complete 30 hours in residence at the
University of Florida campus or at an approved branch
station of the University of Florida Agricultural Experiment
Stations or the Graduate Engineering and Research Center.
A department or college may establish and monitor its own
more stringent requirement as desired.

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 departments,
is both written and oral and covers the major and minor
subjects. All members of the supervisory committee, must
be present with the student at the oral portion. The super-
visory committee has the responsibility at this time of
deciding whether the student is qualified to continue work
toward a Ph.D. degree.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Graduate
School must be notified. A re-examination may be 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
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-


stations must be written in English, except for students
pursing degrees in Romance or German languages and
literatures. Students in these disciplines, with the approval
of their supervisory committees, may write in the topic
language. A copy of each approval should be forwarded to
the Graduate School.
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 Editorial Office of the Graduate School on or before the
date specified in the University Calendar. It must contain an
abstract and be accompanied by a letter of transmittal from
the supervisory chairperson, and all doctoral forms. After
corrections 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
and five copies of the abstract, 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 or college for
hardbinding. The supervisory chairperson and the candi-
date will each need a copy and, if required, another should
also be provided for the departmental library.
Publication of Dissertation.-All candidates for the
Ph.D. and Ed.D. degrees are required to pay the sum of $55
to University Financial Services, S113 Criser Hall, for
microfilming their dissertations, and to sign an agreement
authorizing 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 UMI attached
to the signed microfilm agreement form. To assure receipt
of the valuable Copyright Registration Certificate, candi-
dates must give permanent addresses through which they
can always be reached.
Electronic Dissertation.-The University of Florida is
conducting a pilot project in which the final submission of
the dissertation is electronic. This is part of a national
electronic thesis and dissertation (ETD) initiative which will
make University of Florida graduate research available on
the World Wide Web. More information is available at
http://www.circa.ufl.edu/etd/ or from the Graduate School
Editorial Office.

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, theUniversity must decide what compromises it is
willing to accept, taking into account the relevant circum-
stances. The AAU 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


I




SPECIALIZED GRADUATE DEGREES / 19


subsequent publication of these results, should be consid-
ered 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 sponsors through-
out 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 examination,
oral or written or both, by the supervisory committee
meeting on campus. All supervisory committee members
must be present with the candidate at the oral portion of this
examination. At the time of the defense all committee
members should sign the signature pages and all committee
and attending faculty members should sign the Final Exami-
nation Report. These may be retained by the supervisory
chair until acceptable completion of corrections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adher-
ence to all Graduate School regulations outlined above
complete the requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation.-All work for the doctorate must be
completed within five calendar years after the qualifying
examination, or this examination must be repeated.

CERTIFICATION
Doctoral candidates who have completed all 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
supervisory chair and college dean, and returned to the
Graduate School for verification and processing.



SPECIALIZED GRADUATE

DEGREES


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 auditing/financial account-
ing, 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 degrees upon satisfactory
completion of the 152-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 18 semester credits must be
in graduate level accounting, excluding preparatory courses.
A final comprehensive examination is required of all stu-
dents. 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.).


MASTER OF AGRIBUSINESS

The Master of Agribusiness (M.Ag.B.) degree program
provides an opportunity for advanced study for students
seeking careers with private firms in the agribusiness sector.
It is not recommended for those who seek careers in
research and university teaching.
The core program is comprised of 21 credits which cover
finance, marketing, decision-making, and quantitative
methods relevant to agribusiness. Students must participate
in an internship program. Twelve hours of electives are
available, part of which can be used in an agricultural
science department.
The supervisory committee and examination require-
ments are the same as those for the Master of Agriculture
degree below.


MASTER OF AGRICULTURE

The degree of Master of Agriculture is designed for those
students who wish additional training for agribusiness
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. 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.




20 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 TEACHING AND
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TEACHING

These degrees are designed for graduate students who
intend to teach in junior/community colleges. Require-
ments for admission are the same as those for the regular
M.A. and M.S. degrees in the various colleges, and pro-
grams leading to the M.A.T. and M.S.T. may, with proper
approval, be incorporated 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 and 6 credits in the
minor.
b. Six credits in a departmental internship in teaching
(6943-Internship in College Teaching). Three years
of successful teaching experience in a state certified
school may be substituted forthe internship require-
ment, and credits thus made available 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 curricu-
lum. 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 earned in courses
offered off-campus by the University of Florida which have
been approved by the Graduate School shall be accepted,
provided 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 undergraduate
and graduate degree programs no fewer than 36 semester
credits in the major field.


5. A final comprehensive examination, either written,
oral, or both, must be passed by the candidate. This
examination, will cover the field of concentration and the
minor.

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 or 6979. 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 the Juris Doctor and Master of Arts in Urban and
Regional Planning degrees is offered under the joint aus-
pices of the College of Law and the College of Architecture,
Department of Urban and Regional Planning. The program
provides 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 curricu-

engineering may become a candidate for the Master of
Engineering degree with or without thesis, provided such a




MASTER'S DEGREES / 23


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 re-
quirements 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 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 degree without
thesis. At least 30 of the 32 credits must be taken for a letter
grade. The Departmentof Mechanical Engineering requires
a minimum of 33 credits of course work while Environmen-
tal Engineering Sciences requires a minimum of 34 credits
of course work for degrees without a thesis. All of the
required credits must be in graduate-level courses although
an exception may be made for one 4000-level course,
outside the major, with written justification by the student's
supervisory committee chair and prior approval of the
department chair, college dean, and the Graduate School.
Graduate students may take additional undergraduate
courses, but credits earned in these may not be counted
toward the minimum degree requirements. 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.
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 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 by a 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 Faculty must be chosen from outside the major
department to represent the student's minor.
A Certificate Program in Manufacturing Systems Engi-
neering has been established as an option for the Master of
Engineering degree of six departments: Aerospace Engineer-
ing, Mechanics, and Engineering Science; Computer and
Information Science and Engineering; Electrical and Com-
puter Engineering; Industrial and Systems Engineering;
Materials Science and Engineering; and Mechanical Engi-
neering. Qualification for the certificate requires specified
courses in manufacturing, 15 credits or more of course work
selected from an approved manufacturing systems engi-
neering core, completion of a master's thesis or project on
a manufacturing-related topic, and satisfactory completion
of departmental Master of Engineering requirements. In
most cases, the manufacturing courses will partially satisfy
required and elective course requirements stipulated by the
home department.

MASTER OF FINE ARTS

future accessibility and for record keeping purposes, a copy
of the results must be deposited in a designated library.
Admission.-Applicants requesting admission to any of
the programs should have an earned 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

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 Counselor
Education, Educational Leadership, Foundations of Educa-
tion, 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 immediately 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 attention to
a research component relevant to the professional role for
which the student is preparing.
With departmental approval course work taken as part of
the specialist program may be counted toward a doctoral
degree.
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. At least 33 credits in graduate level courses.

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 institu-
tion of the State University System or from any institution
offering a doctoral degree; however, credit transferred from
another institution reduces proportionately the credit trans-
ferred from University of Florida off-campus courses.


Students who enter the program with a 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.

AGROFORESTRY
The agroforestry interdisciplinary specialization is ad-
ministered through the School of Forest Resources and
Conservation. It offers facilities for interdisciplinary gradu-
ate education (M.S., Ph.D.) by combining course work and
research around a thematic field focusing on agroforestry,
especially in the context of tropical land use. Students
seeking admission to the specialization should have a
degree in one of the relevant fields such as agronomy,
forestry, horticulture, soil science, or social sciences. They
should apply to the School of Forest Resources and Conser-
vation or another department that closely represents their
background and interest. Students have the flexibility to
plan their course work, with focus on agroforestry, out of a
wide range of courses from several related disciplines.
Thesis research can be undertaken in Florida or overseas.
Degrees will be awarded through the departments in which
the candidates are enrolled.
In conjunction with the graduate degree, a student can
earn a specialization or minor in agroforestry by fulfilling
certain requirements. Students who have a primary interest
in agroforestry and undertake graduate research on an
agroforestry topic can seek the specialization. Those who
have an active interest and some training in agroforestry, but
do not conduct graduate research on an agroforestry topic,
can earn a minor. Candidates who fulfill the applicable
requirements can have their transcripts inscribed, upon
request, with the citation Specialization in Agroforestry or
Minor in Agroforestry.
Requirements for either option include completion of
FNR 5335-Agroforestry and an appropriate number of
approved supporting courses. These courses should be
distributed over at least two departments other than the
candidate's major department to provide the student with
the background necessary to function in multidisciplinary
teams and in association with professionals from other








disciplines. Individuals with a strong biological back-
ground are encouraged to take courses in the social sci-
ences, and vice versa.
Candidates for the specialization or minor in agroforestry
should include on the graduate committees at least one
faculty member representing the agroforestry interest. This
faculty member, as designated by the Agroforestry Program
Advisory Committee, will counsel the student on the selec-
tion of courses and the research topic.

The Center for Latin American Studies coordinates teach-
ing, 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 specialized
discipline.
The topical concentration clusters course work and
research around a thematic field focusing on contemporary
Latin American problems. Students may concentrate in
Andean studies, Brazilian studies, Caribbean studies, inter-
national communications, religion and society, and tropical
conservation and development. This option builds on prior
professional or administrative experiences and prepares
students for technical and professional work related to Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Other requirements, common to both options, are (1) 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, or Haitian Cre-
ole); 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-

RESIDENCY


Classification of Students Florida or Non-Florida (Section
6C-7.005, Florida Administrative Code)
The deadline for applying for a change in residency status-
with all documentation-is each term's fee payment dead-
line.
(1) For the purpose of assessing tuition, residency and
nonresidency status shall be determined as provided in
Section 240.1201, Florida Statutes, and the Florida State
University System Residency Policy and Procedure manual,
incorporated by reference herein.
(a) To be classified as a "resident for tuition purposes," a
person, or, if a dependent child, the child's parent or
parents, shall have established legal residence in Florida
and shall have maintained legal residence in Florida for at
least twelve (12) months immediately prior to his or her
qualification. A dependent child is a person who may be
claimed by his or her parent as a dependent under the
Federal Income Tax Code. Every applicant for admission to
a university shall be required to make a statement as to the
length of residence in the state and, shall also establish his
or her presence, or, if a dependent child, the presence of his
or her parent or parents, in the state for the purpose of
maintaining a bona fide domicile in accordance with the
provisions of Section 240.1201(2)(b), Florida Statutes.
(b) With respect to a dependent child, the legal residence
of such individual's parent or parents shall be prima facie
evidence of the individual's legal residence in accordance
with the provisions of Section 240.1201(4), Florida Statutes.
Prima Facie evidence may be reinforced or rebutted by
evidence of residency, age, and the general circumstances
of the individual in accordance with the provisions of Rule
6C-7.005(2).
(c) In making domiciliary determinations related to the
classification of persons as residents or nonresidents for
tuition purposes, the domicile of a married person, 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 requirement.
(e) No person shall lose his or her resident status for tuition
purposes solely by reason of serving, or, if a dependent


child, by reason of the parent or parents serving, in the
Armed Forces outside this state.
(f) A person who has been properly classified as a resident
for tuition purposes, but who, while enrolled in an institu-
tion of higher education in this state, loses resident tuition
status because the person or, if a dependent child, the parent
or parents establish domicile or legal residence elsewhere,
shall continue to enjoy the resident tuition rate for a statutory
grace period. This grace period shall be measured in
accordance with the provisions of Section 240.1201(8),
Florida Statutes.
g) The legal residence of a dependent child whose parents
are divorced, separated, or otherwise living apart shall be
deemed to be Florida if either parent is a legal resident of
Florida, regardless of which parent is entitled to claim, and
does in fact claim, the minor as a dependent pursuant to
federal individual income tax provisions.
(h) Any person who ceases to be enrolled at or graduates
from an institution of higher education while classified as a
resident for tuition purposes and who subsequently aban-
dons 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 for tuition purposes.
(j) Full-time instructional and administrative personnel
employed by state public schools, community colleges, and
institutions of higher education, and the spouses and depen-
dent children of such individuals, shall be classified as
residents for tuition purposes.
(k) A student enrolled through the Florida Linkage Insti-
tutes program shall be assessed residenttuition for the credit
hours approved by the applicable Linkage Institute and
nonresident tuition for all other credit hours.
(I) A full-time studentfrom Latin AmericaortheCaribbean
who receives a scholarship from federal or state government
shall be classified as a resident for tuition purposes.
(m) Southern Regional Education Board's Academic Com-
mon Market graduate students shall be classified as resi-
dents for tuition purposes.
(n) A full-time employee of a state agency or political
subdivision of the state shall be classified as a resident for
tuition purposes when the student's tuition is paid by the
state agency or political subdivision for the purpose of job-
related law enforcement or corrections training.
(o) United States citizens, their spouses, and dependent
children living on the Isthmus of Panama, who have
completed 12 consecutive months of college work at the
Florida State University Panama Canal Branch shall be
classified as residents for tuition purposes.
(p) McKnight Doctoral Fellows who are United States
citizens 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 resident tuition rate, until the individual has provided
satisfactory evidence as to his or her legal residence and
domicile to appropriate university officials. In determining
residency, the university shall require evidence such as a
voter registration, driver's license, automobile registration,
location of bank account, rent receipts, and any other








relevant materials as evidence that the applicant has main-
tained 12-months residence immediately prior to qualifica-
tion as a bona fide domicile, rather than for the purpose of
maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode incident
to enrollment in an institution of higher learning. To
determine if the student is a dependent child, the university
shall require evidence such as copies of the aforementioned
documents from parents and/or legal guardians. In addition,
the university may require a copy of the parents' IRS return.
"Resident student" classification also shall be construed to
include students to whom an Immigration Parolee card or a
Form 1-94 (Parole Edition) was issued at least one year prior
to the first day of classes for which resident student status is
sought, or who have had their resident alien status approved
by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Ser-
vice, or who hold an Immigration and Naturalization Form
1-151, 1-551 or a notice of an approved adjustment of status
application, or Cuban nationals or Vietnamese refugees or
other 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 residence requirements stated above and
comply with subsection (4) below. The burden of establish-
ing facts which justify classification of a student as a resident
and domiciliary entitled to "resident for tuition purposes"
registration rates is on the applicant for such classification.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the institu-
tion, 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.
(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 Rule 6C-7.005(1), (2) if requested by
the registering authority.
(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child, the individual's
parent, after maintaining a legal residence and being a bona
fide domiciliary of Florida for twelve (12) months, immedi-
ately prior to enrollment and qualification as a resident,
rather than for the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary
residence of abode incident to enrollment in an institution
for higher education, may apply for and be granted classi-
fication as a "resident for tuition purposes," provided,
however, that those students who are nonresident aliens or
who are in the United States on a non-immigration visa will
not be entitled to reclassification. An application for reclas-
sification 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 legal residency


FINANCIAL INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS / 37


in the state for the twelve months immediately prior to
qualification required to establish residence for tuition
purposes. In the absence of such evidence, the applicant
shall not be reclassified as a "resident for tuition purposes."
It is recommended that the application for reclassification
be accompanied by a certified copy of a declaration of intent
to establish legal domicile in the state, which intent must
have been filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, as
provided by Section 222.17, Florida Statutes. If the request
for reclassification and the necessary documentation are not
received by the fee payment deadline for the term, the
student will not be reclassified for that term. Students who
receive extensions to the fee payment deadline are not
excused from the residency application deadline.
(6) An appeal to a determination that denied "residency for
tuition purposes" may be initiated by filing 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 be subject, upon determination of such
falsity, to such disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed by
the president of the university.

Loans
At the University of Florida, graduate students may apply
for the following student loans: Federal Direct Stafford/Ford
Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford Loans,
University of Florida Institutional Loans, and Federal Perkins
Loans. These programs offer long-term, low-interest loans
that must be repaid when the borrower graduates, with-
draws, or drops to less than half-time enrollment.
In general, students may borrow up to the cost of
attendance minus any other financial aid per academic year
at interest rates from 5% to 8.25% annually. Some loans are
based on financial need; other are not. The actual amount
of each loan is based on financial need and/or program
limits.
To apply, students should pick up a Gator Aid Applica-
tion Guide and a Free Application for Federal Student Aid
(FAFSA) from the Office for Student Financial Affairs in S-
107 Criser Hall. On-line FAFSAs are available through links
on SFA's home page (http://www.ufsa.ufl.edu/SFA/
SFA.html). Students should not wait until they have been
admitted to apply for aid. For fall loans, applications should
be submitted as soon as possible after January 1. Although
students may apply for Federal Direct Stafford/Ford Loans
throughout the year, they must observe the deadlines set
each semester for applying for loans for the following
semester and should always apply as early as possible. The
deadlines are printed in the Gator Aid Application Guide.
The University also has an emergency short-term loan
program to help students meet temporary financial needs
related to educational expenses. Graduate students may
borrow up to $400 or the amount of in-state tuition if they
have an acceptable repayment source. Interest is 1% per
month and these loans must be repaid by the first day of the
last month in the semester in which the money is borrowed.
Processing time is approximately 48 hours. Applications are
available in Student Financial Affairs.

Affairs (SFA) in S-107 Criser Hall coordinates part-time on-
and off-campus employment through the following three
employment programs: Federal Work-Study, including the
Federal Community Service component; Other Personnel
Services (OPS); and off-campus jobs. Federal Work-Study
jobs are based on financial need. To apply for Federal Work-
Study, students should pick up a Gator Aid Application
Guide and a Free Application for Federal Student Aid

offices concerning the availability of assistantships and the
procedure for making application. Prospective students
should write directly to their major departments. Early
inquiry is essential in order to be assured of meeting
application deadlines. Appointments are made on the
recommendation of the department chairperson, subject to
admission to the Graduate School and to the approval of the
Dean of the Graduate School. Clear evidence of superior
ability and promise is required. Reappointment to assistant-
ships requires evidence of continuation of good scholarship.
Unless otherwise specified, applications for these awards
should be made to the appropriate department chair,
University of Florida, on or before February 15 of each year.
Fellows and graduate assistants must pay appropriate in-

stipends of $3150.00 or greater and trainees are expected to
devote full time to their studies. Graduate assistants who
have part-time teaching or research duties register for
reduced study loads according to the schedule for minimum
full-time registration given above.

TUITION PAYMENTS

In-State Matriculation Fee Payments are available to
graduate assistants and fellows who meet the eligibility
requirements. Any change in the student's academic or
employment status after processing a tution payment will
result in the original payment being updated, reduced, or
voided as appropriate.
Non-Florida Tuition Payments are available to out-of-
state students who hold graduate assistantships or fellow-
ships and who meet the eligibility requirements. Any
change in the student's academic or employment status after
processing a tution payment will result in the original
payment being updated, reduced, or voided as appropriate.

UNIVERSITY-WIDE FELLOWSHIPS

Alumni Graduate Fellowship
These fellowships, funded at nationally competitive lev-
els, represent the highest graduate student award available
at the University. These prestigious awards support students
in all programs and departments awarding the Ph.D. or
M.F.A.
The University offers 100 of these fellowships for students
beginning study in the Fall of 1999. The "Alumni 100" of
1999 will be the first class of Alumni Graduate Fellows. To
ensure that Alumni Fellows receive every opportunity to
succeed, these fellowships provide a full four years of
support for qualifying students.
Most fellows will receive a minimum of two years of fully
funded fellowships, and they will receive another two years
of research or teaching assistantships. The University
expects Alumni Fellows to demonstrate high standards of
academic achievement and participation in university life.
Prospective candidates should apply through their major
departments or colleges. Successful applicants must have
outstanding undergraduate preparation, a strong commit-
ment to their field of study, and demonstrated potential in
research and creative activities.

Named Presidential Fellowship
The Graduate School awards fellowships named for
former University of Florida presidents. They represent a
four-year commitment to the student, assuming satisfactory
progress toward the degree.
The first and fourth years are funded by the Graduate
School. The second and third years are funded by the
student's department or college as either an assistantship or
a fellowship at the same stipend level as the Graduate
School funding. Because nationally competitive stipend
levels vary widely across disciplines, the academic units set
the stipend level. The lower bound of the stipend is $10,000
annually.
The fellowships are limited to U.S. citizens or permanent
residents who are pursuing a terminal degree (i.e., Ph.D.,
Ed.D., or M.F.A.). The program is intended primarily to


attract outstanding students from across the nation. Appli-
cations for students from traditionally underrepresented
groups are encouraged.
Potential applicants should contact their major depart-
ments for complete application information.

Grinter Fellowship
Grinter Fellowships are named in honor of Dr. Linton E.
Grinter, Dean of the Graduate School from 1952 to 1969.
The intent of this fellowship is to facilitate recruitment of
truly exceptional graduate students. Currently enrolled
graduate students are not eligible, except in the particular
case in which they are entering a Ph.D. (or other terminal
degree) program.
Stipends are normally in the $2000 to 4000 range.
Continuation of the Grinter beyond the first year is contin-
gent upon satisfactory student progress.
Interested students should contact their major depart-
ments for complete information. Students in the Colleges of
Agriculture, Engineering, and Law are not eligible for
Grinter Fellowships.

Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research
Abroad Fellowship

Through the U.S. Department of Education's Center for
International Education, graduate students who are Ameri-
can citizens can apply for one of approximately 87 awards.
The Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship
Program provides opportunities for graduate students to
engage in full-time dissertation research abroad in modern
foreign languages and area studies. Preference is given to
applications that meet the following priority: Research that
focuses on Africa, East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific,
South Asia, the Near East, East Central and Eastern Europe
and Eurasia, and the Western Hemisphere (Central and
South America, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean). Ap-
plications that propose projects focused on Western Europe
will not be funded.
Applications are available for the next academic year in
September, with an November deadline for transmittal. The
project period may be from 6 to 12 months. The estimated
average award is $24,000. For application information
contact Karla Ver Bryck Block, U.S. Department of Educa-
tion, 600 Independence Ave., SW, Suite 600, Washington
DC 20202-5331, telephone (202) 401-9774 or, locally, the
Office of Program Information, 256 Grinter Hall.

whose academic programs are either Latin America or
Africa oriented. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or perma-
nent residents and must be registered for a full-time course

RESEARCH AND TEACHING

SERVICES

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
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 nature of
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. All students and faculty are provided
library service upon presentation of the University of Florida
Gator One Card. This card is used to circulate books, to
borrow reserves, and to establish identity for other library
services such as Interlibrary Loan and remote access to
databases.
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, abstracts,
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 literature
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 opportunities, and
provides a great deal of information on services and poli-
cies. 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.
The home page, WebLUIS, and access to the resources
contained in them are available at any workstation with a
University of Florida IP address and remotely by keying in
the Gator One library card number.
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 and on the specific library's home page.
As is common in research libraries, library materials are
housed in a variety of locations depending upon discipline.
*Library 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 holdings
of all federal documents (except the science-related hold-
ings in Marston), many state and local documents, and
selected holdings of international and foreign documents.
*Smathers Library holds the Latin American Collection and
the Special Collections-rare books and manuscripts, P. K.
Yonge Library of Florida History, and University Archives.
*Marston 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.
eArchitecture/Fine Arts Library (201 Fine Arts Building A)
holds visual arts, architecture, and building construction
materials.
*Education Library (1500 Norman Hall) holds most of the
education collections and temporarily houses the Judaica
Collection.
*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 communication.
*Health Science Center Library holds major resources for
the medical sciences, related life sciences, and veterinary
medicine.
*Legal Information Center holds major resources for law
and related social sciences.
Together the Libraries hold over 3,300,000 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 of Judaica which is
the largest collection of its kind in the Southeast (Education
Library); and the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History,
which is the state's preeminent Floridiana collection and
holds the largest North American collection of Spanish
colonial documents concerning the southeastern United
States as well as rich archives of prominent Florida politi-
cians (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), U.S. documents (Library West, Documents), and
computing files acquired primarily through the Inter-Uni-
versity Consortium for Political and Social Research (Tape
Library, request at Library West, Reference).
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-
tion is available at all circulation desks. At the 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 and are available
under the training sessions portion of the library home page.
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
coordinators are available in Humanities and Social Science
Reference in Library West, in Marston Science Library, and
in the branches.
Subject specialists, who work closely with faculty and
graduate students to select materials for the collections, also
advise graduate students and other researchers who need
specialized bibliographic knowledge to define what infor-


RESEARCH AND TEACHING FACILITIES / 45


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 via the library home page. Users may
schedule a meeting with the appropriate specialist.
The Libraries memberships in the Research Libraries
Group and the Center for Research Libraries give faculty
and students access to many major scholarly collections. 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 home page (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu) or calling

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 carries dual responsibility as the Florida museum and
the University museum.
The research and collections museum is located in
Dickinson Hall at the corner of Museum Road and Newell
Drive. The public education and exhibits division of the
Museum is in Powell Hall, on Hull Road at the western edge
of campus, situated between the Harm Museum of Art and
the Center for the Performing Arts. Completed in 1997,
Powell Hall is devoted exclusively to permanent and trav-
eling exhibits, educational programs, and special events.
Powell Hall is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays and holidays. The
Museum is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is
no admission charge.
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 programs.
The scientific and educational faculty (curators) hold ap-
pointments 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 Entomol-
ogy as the largest in the western hemisphere and the premier
Lepidoptera research center in the world. The Allyn Mu-
seum publishes the Bulletin of the Allyn Museum of Ento-
mology and sponsors the Karl Jordan Medal. The Allyn
Collection serves as a major source for taxonomic and
biogeographic research by a number of Museum and
Department of Zoology faculty and students, as well as a
great many visiting entomologists from around the world.
The Swisher Memorial Sanctuary and the Ordway Pre-
serve are adjacent pieces of land totalling some 9,300 acres.
The land includes an array of habitats including marsh,
lakes, sandhills, and mesic hammocks. Jointly administered
by the School of Forest Resources and Conservation and the
Florida Museum of Natural History, this area supports
several research activities centering on the ecology of
threatened species and the restoration of the native longleaf
pine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and dissertation re-
search projects consistent with the aims of the preserve are
actively encouraged.
The herbarium of the University of Florida is also a part
of the Museum. It contains over 150,000 specimens of
vascular plants and 170,000 specimens of nonvascular
plants. In addition, the herbarium operates a modern gas
chromatographic/mass spectrometer laboratory for the study
and identification of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's hold-
ings. Materials are constantly being added to the collections
both through gifts from friends and as a result of research

activities of the Museum staff. The archaeological and
ethnological collections are noteworthy, particularly in the
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, invertebrate and vertebrate fos-
sils, 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 spon-
sored in the archaeological, paleontological, and zoologi-
cal fields. Students interested in these specialties should
make application to the appropriate teaching department.
Graduate assistantships are available in the Museum in
areas emphasized in its research programs.

AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATION

The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station conducts a
statewide program in agriculture, natural resources, and the
environment. Research deals with agricultural production,
processing, marketing, human nutrition, veterinary medi-
cine, renewable natural resources, and environmental is-
sues. This research program includes activities by depart-
ments located on the Gainesville campus as well as on the
campuses of Research and Education Centers throughout
the state. Close cooperation with numerous Florida agricul-
tural and natural resource related agencies and organiza-
tions is maintained to provide research support for Florida's
broad variety of crops, commodities, and natural resources.
The land-grant philosophy of research, extension, and
teaching is strongly supported and administered by the Vice
President for Agriculture and Natural Resources. The Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, under his leader-
ship, comprises the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station,
the Cooperative Extension Service, the College of Agricul-
ture, and elements of the College of Veterinary Medicine,
each functioning under a dean. Many of the IFAS faculty
have joint appointments among areas.

jointly supported with Florida A&M University.
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station is cooperat-
ing with the Brooksville Subtropical Research Station,
Brooksville, a USDA field laboratory, in its beef cattle and
pasture production and management programs and with the
National Weather Service, Ruskin, in the agricultural weather
service for Florida.
In addition to the above, research is conducted through
the IFAS International Programs Office, the Centers for
Natural Resources Programs and for Biomass Energy Sys-
tems, the Center for Environmental Toxicology, and the
Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants.

ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL
EXPERIMENT STATION

The internationally recognized Engineering and Indus-
trial Experiment Station (EIES) is the research arm of the
College of Engineering. It was officially established in 1941
by the Florida Legislature. Its primary purpose is to perform
research that benefits the state's industries, health, welfare,
and public services. EIES also works to enhance our nation's
global competitive posture by developing new materials,
devices, and processes. In addition, EIES provides under-
graduate and graduate engineering students with significant
opportunities to participate in hands-on, cutting-edge re-
search.
EIES addresses a wide variety of state and national
research issues through the college's academic departments

OFFICE OF RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY, AND
GRADUATE EDUCATION.

The Office of Research, Technology and Graduate Edu-
cation (ORTGE) includes the Division of Sponsored Re-
search, the Office of Technology Licensing, and the Gradu-
ate School. ORTGE is administered by the Vice President
for Research/Dean of the Graduate School.
The primary missions of ORTGE are to stimulate the
growth of research and graduate education throughout the
University; to help create significant relationships between
government, industry, .other research sponsors and the
University; and to promote economic development in
Alachua County, the State of Florida, and the nation through
technology transfer opportunities.
The Division of Sponsored Research (DSR) has two
general goals: to promote and administer the sponsored
research program and to assist the faculty, staff, and students
in developing their research activities.
All research, grant-in-aid, training, or educational ser-
vice agreement proposals must have the approval of the
Director of Sponsored Research before submission. Subse-
quent negotiations of sponsored awards are also the respon-
sibility of the Division. DSR assists researchers in identify-
ing possible sponsors for their projects. DSR also dissemi-
nates program information and University policies and
procedures for the conduct of research, as well as proposal
deadlines.
The University of Florida Research Foundation is the
steward for the technology transfer process and through the
Office of Technology Licensing handles all intellectual
property at the University.
The Office of Technology Licensing (OTL) handles the
patenting, marketing, and licensing of intellectual property.
OTL works closely with UF inventors in the identification
and protection of new inventions. All patents, copyrights,
and trademarks are processed and managed by OTL. In
addition OTL assists researchers in the development of
confidentiality, mutual secrecy, and material transfer agree-
ments.

STUDENT SERVICES

CAREER RESOURCE CENTER

The Career Resource Center (CRC), located on the west
side of the j. Wayne Reitz Union at the first floor level, is the
central agency for career planning, employment assistance,
and cooperative education internships for University of
Florida students. The Center provides a range of services for
all graduate students and alumni seeking employment
opportunities. The CRC also works closely with the Aca-
demic Advising Center.





STUDENT SERVICES / 51


Graduate students wishing to explore career interests,
gain experience through cooperative education assign-
ments or internship, organize their job search campaign, or
gain skills in resume and interview techniques are invited to
visit the Center and utilize its services. The Center has an
extensive career library, with employer recruiting materials,
directories of employers, and other career skills informa-
tion, and its "immediate job openings" section averages
over 600 possible openings a week. For those graduate
students seeking individual assistance in resolving career
and academic problems, the Center has a number of career
counselors and advisers available for personal appoint-
ments.
The World Wide Web.-The Career Resource Center
and the world of jobs and career information can be
accessed via CRC's World Wide Web page at http://
www.crc.ufl.edu/. This Web site is as near as the closest UF
computer lab, through terminals in the CRC library, or if
Web access is available, from a personal computer. It
contains a full spectrum of information, services and direct
Web links, including details about the Career Resource
Center, its mission, location and hours of operation, de-
scriptions of CRC programs and services for students, career
fairs and Career Expo (including a current list of employers
attending), a schedule of CRC events and programs, job
listings and interviewing/on-campus recruiting (including
signing up for interviews), and information for alumni. For
those in the immediate job market, there are direct links to
such job posting services as JOBTRAK, and registering
with the Grad System enables participation in on-campus
interviews and resume referral via the Gator Locator resume
database.
A significant on-campus job interview program with
representatives from business, industry, government, and
education is conducted by the Center. These major employ-
ers 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 pro-
gram. The Center also sponsors a number of Career Days
and Expos during the academic year, which bring employ-
ers 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 em-
ployers.
The Center also hosts Graduate and Professional School
Day in the fall, bringing to campus representatives from 40
to 50 colleges and universities around the country. Students
may gather information and ask questions about various
graduate and professional 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 em-
ployers.

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 psychologists 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, or group counseling is
available to help students with personal, career, and aca-
demic concerns. Appointments to see a counselor may be
made in person at 301 Peabody Hall. There is an initial

decisions about the type of help needed. Students requiring
immediate help are seen on a nonappointment emergency
basis. Counseling interviews are confidential. Call (352)
392-1575 for more information.
Consulting.-Center psychologists are available for con-
sulting with students, staff, professionals, and faculty. These
consultations often focus on working with individual stu-
dents, special programs, organizational problems, ways of
improving student environments, and other issues that may
have important psychological dimensions.
Career Development.-In addition to career counseling,
the Center offers vocational interest testing and career
workshops. The Center also provides referral information to
students seeking specific career information.
Group and Workshop Program.-The Center offers a
wide variety of groups and workshops. A number of them,
such as the women's support group and the graduate student
support group, are designed for special populations. Others
such as the math confidence groups and stress management
workshops are formed to help participants deal with com-
mon problems and learn specific skills. A list of available
groups and workshops is published at the beginning of each
term and is listed on the World Wide Web at http://
www.counsel.ufl.edu.
Teaching/Training.-The Center provides a variety of
practicum and internship training experience for students in
counseling psychology, clinical psychology, counselor
education, and rehabilitation counseling. Center faculty
also teach undergraduate and graduate courses in some of
these departments.
Confidentiality.-The Center adheres to very strict con-
fidentiality standards. Any information provided is strictly
confidential except in life threatening situations, cases of
suspected child or elder abuse, or when release is otherwise
required by law.

services, please visit http://www.cousel.ufl.edu.

ENGLISH SKILLS FOR INTERNATIONAL
STUDENTS

The University of Florida makes available three English
language programs to help international graduate students
improve their proficiency in English. These programs are (1)
the English Language Institute, (2) Scholarly Writing, and (3)
Academic Spoken English.
Applicants whose command of English is not as good as
expected may be required by their departments to attend the
English Language Institute (ELI), an intensive English pro-
gram designed to provide rapid gain in English proficiency.
An ELI student may require one, two, or exceptionally, three
semesters of full-time English study before entering Gradu-
ate School. Information about ELI is available in 315
Norman Hall.





52 / GENERAL INFORMATION


The Scholarly Writing (SW) program is designed to help
foreign graduate students improve their writing ability.
Applicants whose verbal GRE scores are below 320 or who
have been admitted provisionally with a TOEFL score lower
than 550 are given a writing test. Those demonstrating a
lower proficiency than needed for successful performance
in written tasks at the graduate level are required to take ENS
4449. Another course, ENS 5450-Research Writing, is
offered to those who wish to learn to write in their fields of
study. Information aboutthe SW program is available at the
coordinator's office, 116 Anderson Hall, telephone (352)
392-0639 or 377-2189.
The Academic Spoken English (ASE) program is designed
to help those who expect to be Graduate Teaching Assis-
tants at the University of Florida but who cannot demon-
strate a high enough proficiency in English. Students who
must raise TSE scores are advised to take ENS 4501, a course
to improve general oral language skills. Another course,
ENS 5502, is offered to students whose proficiency is good
enough to begin teaching but who still need help learning
to use English in an American classroom. Teachers are
videotaped and their class work discussed constructively by
the ASE staff. The third course, ENS 5503, is a tutorial.

GRADUATE STUDENT COUNCIL

The Graduate Student Council was formed in 1989 to
foster interaction among graduate students on campus and
to provide an agency for the coordination of graduate
student activities and programs. The GSC seeks the im-
provement of graduate student education through active
and permanent communication with the Graduate School,
the University administration, and the Florida Board of
Regents. It also represents the interests of graduate students
at the student government, administration, local, state, and
national levels. The Graduate Student Council was instru-
mental in having the University Constitution changed so
that there is a graduate student member on the Graduate
Council. Each year the GSC elects a graduate student to a
two-year term on the Graduate Council-one year as the
alternate, nonvoting member and one year as a voting
member.
GSC activities include hosting the annual fall orientation
program for new students, organizing the Graduate Student
Forum each spring semester, and funding travel grants for

OMBUDSMAN

The Office of the University Ombudsman was established
by the state legislature and reports directly to the President.
The purpose of the office is to assist students in resolving
problems and conflicts. The office provides an informal
avenue of redress for students' problems and grievances,
which arise in the course of interacting with the institution.
By considering the problems in an unbiased way, the
Ombudsman works to achieve a fair resolution and works
to protect the rights of all involved properties.
The Office of the Ombudsman deals with student con-
cerns of an academic nature. Such problems may be related
to grades, differences of opinion with instructors, or any
academic matter that needs resolution. Students are ad-
vised to first contact the instructor, the department chair,
and/or the college dean before seeking assistance from the
Ombudsman, although instances do exist where contact
with the University Ombudsman first is beneficial.
In many instances, nonacademic issues can be easily and
readily resolved for students merely by providing an oppor-
tunity for direct communication and effective listening. For
other problems not related to academic issues, the Office of
the Ombudsman assists students in making contact with the
appropriate campus office for dealing with their problems.




STUDENT SERVICES / 55


The Ombudsman for graduate students is the Associate
Dean of the Graduate School, 280 Grinter Hall, telephone
(352)392-6622.

HIV/AIDS Policy.-The policy of the University is to
assess the needs of students or employees with HIV infection
on a case-by-case basis. With the permission of the affected
individual (whether student, faculty, or staff member), the
Director of the Student Health Care Center, Dr. Michael
Huey (392-1161), will assist in the coordination of re-
sources and services.
The confidentiality of the individual's HIV status, as well
as the individual's welfare, is respected. Breach of confiden-
tiality of information obtained by a University employee in
an official University capacity may result in disciplinary
action.
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.




56 /GENERAL INFORMATION


It is also the policy of the University to provide education
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 complica-
tions 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.

WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHING ASSISTANTS

The Graduate School and the Office of Instructional
Resources (OIR) offer an orientation and a series of work-


shops for teaching assistants to improve their instructional
skills. The orientation and "getting started" workshop are
mandatory for all graduate students who are beginning
teaching assignments. Topics include presentation skills,
course and lecture planning, techniques for improving
student attention and motivation, group dynamics, testing
and grading, and how to elicit and interpret feedback.
Participants may request videotaping of their classroom
presentations and student feedback on strengths and weak-
nesses. To sign up or for more information, call Dr.
Winifred Cooke at the OIR Teaching Center, 392-2010, or
drop by the office on the ground level, Southwest Broward
Hall.

The Fisher School of Accounting offers graduate work
leading to the Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) degree and
the Ph.D. degree with a major in business administration
and an accounting concentration. The M.Acc. degree
program offers specialization in each of the three areas of
auditing/financial accounting, accounting systems, and
taxation. A joint program leading to the Juris Doctor and
Master of Accounting degrees also is offered by the Fisher
School of Accounting and College of Law. Specific details
for the M.Acc., M.Acc./J.D., and Ph.D. programs will be
supplied by the Fisher School of Accounting upon request.
The M.Acc. and the Ph.D. accounting programs require
admission standards of at least the following: A combined
verbal and quantitative score of 1200 on the Graduate
Record Examination (GRE), or a score of 550 on the
Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Admission
to the M.Acc. or Ph.D. accounting graduate programs
cannot be granted until scores are received.
Information on minimum GPA standards for admission to
the M.Acc. program may be obtained from the office of the
Associate Director. International students must submit a
TOEFL score of at least 570 with a minimum of 60 on the
first section, 55 on the second section, and 55 on the third
section, and a satisfactory GMAT or GRE score.
The recommended curriculum to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting is the 3/2 five-year program with
a joint awarding of the Bachelor of Science in Accounting
and Master of Accounting degrees upon completion of the
152-hour program. The entry point into the 3/2 program is
the beginning of the senior year.
Students who have already completed an undergraduate
degree in accounting may enter the one-year M.Acc.
degree program which requires satisfactory completion of
34 hours of course work. A minimum of 20 credits must be
in graduate level courses; a minimum of 18 credits must be
in graduate level accounting courses. The remaining credits
are selected from recommended elective courses that vary
by area of specialization. Students are cautioned to seek
early advisement since many graduate courses are offered
only once a year.
Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a core of
courses in mathematical methods, statistics, and economic
theory; one or two supporting fields selected by the student;
and a major field of accounting. Students are expected to
acquire teaching experience as part of the Ph.D. degree
program. Grants-in-aid will be awarded for this teaching.
International students must submit a Test of Spoken English
(TSE) test score of at least 220 along with satisfactory GMAT/


GRE and TOEFL scores in order to obtain a teaching

72 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION


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 Anthro-
pology.


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 anthropology
and an outside field. More information about these two
options is found in the department publication on graduate
programs and policies that may be obtained by writing
directly to the Department.
The Department of Anthropology generally requires a
minimum score of 1100 on the Graduate Record 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 for the program are listed in this catalog under
Requirements for Master's Degrees.
Students enrolled in the M.A. program who wish to
continue their studies for a Ph.D. must apply to the
Department for certification. Minimum requirements will
normally include 1) a minimum grade point average of 3.5
in all graduate anthropology courses and a minimum of 3.2
in other courses, 2) a grade of pass on the comprehensive
M.A. examination, and 3) a thesis, report, or paper judged
to be of excellent quality by the student's supervisory
committee. In most cases, candidates for the Ph.D. must
achieve competency in a language other than English.
Entering students who already have earned a master's
degree may apply for direct admission to the doctoral
program.
The deadline for receiving completed applications for
admission into the graduate program is January 5 (for fall
semester admission only). The Department strongly en-
courages early applications.

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-
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, structures, and practice must also
be completed.


Baccalaureate in Related Degree Base.-For those stu-
dents who have a baccalaureate degree with an architecture
or related major (interior design, landscape architecture)
and who have completed 4 or 6 architecture or design
studies, three years of residence (83 credits, approximately)
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, 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 for the graduate
degree.) Course sequences in history and theory, materials
and methods, technology, structures, and practice 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 for the 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.
Most states require that an individual intending to be-
come an architect hold an accredited degree. There are two
types of degrees that are accredited by the National Archi-
tectural Accrediting Board: (1) the Bachelor of Architecture,
which requires a minimum of five years of study, and (2) the
Master of Architecture, which requires a minimum of three
years of study following an unrelated bachelor's degree or
two years following a related preprofessional bachelor's
degree. These professional degrees are structured to edu-
cate those who aspire to registration and licensure to
practice as architects.
Masterof Science in Architectural Studies.-The M.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
discipline from an accredited university are eligible to apply
to this program; the proposed area of focus should be
precisely defined in the application. This is a three-to-four-


___





ARCHITECTURE / 75


semester program (32 hours minimum) which includes a
thesis. (No more than six hours of ARC 6971 may be counted
in the minimum credit hours for the degree.) Interdiscipli-
nary study is encouraged.
The College of Architecture sponsors special curricula in
architecture to enhance the academic program. Preserva-
tion Institute: Caribbean, Preservation Institute: Nantucket,
Miami Beach Education and Research Center, and Vicenza
Institute of Architecture (Italy) accept students, not only from
the University of Florida, but from academic circles through-
out 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 fall semester graduate
admission, including official transcripts, GRE scores, and
TOEFL scores, if necessary, must be received by the Office
of the Registrar by February 15. In addition to satisfying
University requirements for admission, applicants are re-
quired to submit to the Graduate Program Assistant, Depart-
ment of Architecture, 231 ARCH, P.O. Box 115702, 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 Febru-
ary 15 to be considered for admission in the following fall
semester. (Portfolio must be accompanied by self-ad-
dressed, stamped envelope.) Students may apply after the
February 15 deadline but will only be considered if spaces
become available; scholarships are generally no longer
available after this deadline. (Updates of portfolios are
accepted after February 15; however, applications 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.
Doctor of Philosophy.-The College of Architecture
offers a program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree
in architecture. Areas of specialization within this program
include architecture, building construction, interior design,
landscape architecture, and urban and regional planning.
For information, write to the Director, College of Architec-

The Department of Astronomy at the University of Florida,
Gainesville, offers graduate programs leading to the M.S. or
Ph.D. degrees in astronomy. The Astronomy Department
currently consists of 19 faculty, 12 research staff, and 28
graduate students, making it one of the largest departments
in the country. Research is an integral part of the graduate
program. Students have opportunities to work with faculty
and staff on a broad range of astronomical problems using
in-house, national and international, ground- and space-
based facilities. Support for graduate studies is available
through fellowships, research assistantships and teaching
assistantships.
Instrumentation Programs.-Infrared Astrophysics Labo-
ratory (UFIRAL) is a state-of-the art laboratory for the design
and construction of advanced near-infrared and mid-infra-
red instrumentation to be used on major telescopes around
the world. Such instruments will provide support for a
broad range of scientific research programs within the
Department. The UFIRAL recently commissioned OSCIR,
its first instrument, a mid-infrared camera and spectrometer
system.
Solar System.-The planetary science research groups
are primarily concerned with the study of small bodies in
the Solar System Asteroids, comets, meteoroids, and
interplanetary dust particles. Cometary programs include
the study of the composition of the comae and the nuclei of
comets. Researchers are also active in studying and
modeling the production and orbital evolution of interplan-


etary dust particles in the zodiacal cloud. The properties of
cosmic dust and planetary aerosols are studied in the
Laboratory for Astrophysics using its Microwave Analog-to-
Light Scattering facility to simulate accurately the scattering
of electromagnetic radiation. The laboratory also develops
hardware for NASA and international space agencies to
measure the optical properties of dust particles in diverse
environments. The planetary radio astronomy group oper-
ates the Radio Observatory (UFRO), one of the two largest
observatories in the world dedicated to the study of deca-
metric radio emission from the giant planets.
Stellar Astronomy.-The stellar astronomy group mainly
concentrates on the synthesis of observable quantities for
interacting binaries and the simultaneous analysis of X-ray
pulse delays, light curves, and radial velocity curves for X-
ray binaries. The widely used Wilson-Devinney code is
maintained and disseminated by the group. Astrometry
programs include improving the accuracy and reliability of
the statistical analysis of astrometric measurements and
evaluating the problems of parameter estimation. The
Department maintains the International Card Catalog of
Photometric Binaries which consists of references and
bibliographic notes for over 3000 eclipsing binary stars.
Star Formation.-Theoretical studies emphasize the in-
fluences of thermodynamics, velocity fields, and interface
instabilities upon star formation. Observational studies
focus on investigating the properties of giant molecular
clouds and the evolution of newly born stars in isolated and
cluster environments in orderto understand the origin of the
initial stellar mass distributions and to search for and study
circumstellar, protoplanetary disks.
Structure and Dynamics of Galaxies.-Observational
and theoretical programs include a study of the structure,
dynamics, and modeling of galaxies. The properties of
these galaxies are investigated using N-body and
hydrodynamical codes. Ideas and techniques from nonlin-
ear dynamics are applied to problems in galactic dynamics
and cosmology, including the study of the transient behav-
ior of chaotic orbits and the processes of nonviolent relax-
ation. In addition the properties of dark matter halos are
being investigated.
Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology.-Observa-
tional programs investigate the formation and evolution of
distant galaxies, by emphasizing stellar populations of high
redshift galaxies to determine how and when the stars that
make up normal field galaxies formed. Stellar populations
of nearby galaxies are also used to investigate the fossil
record of the formation of galaxies. Optical and infrared
investigations of the variable properties of starburst galax-
ies, AGNs and QSOs have been made since 1968. Theo-
retical investigations focus on applications of general rela-
tivity and particle physics to understand conditions in the
very early universe.
Observational Opportunities.-Research programs use
national and international ground-and space-based astro-
nomical facilities such as Arecibo, BIMA, Cassini, CTIO,
COBE, Galileo, HST, IRAM, IRAS, IRTF, ISO, KPNO, La
Palma, NRAO, OVRO, SIRTF, and Ulysses. Students can
also use the University of Florida's Rosemary Hill Observa-
tory which houses 76 cm and 46 cm reflectors.
Computing Facilities.-The Astronomy Department main-
tains a network of high performance Sun Sparc and DEC
work stations, along with several Pentium PCs. In addition,

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
offers programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in
biochemistry and molecular biology and to the Ph.D. in
medical sciences (interdisciplinary program, see Medical
Sciences). There are differences in organization and focus
between the two Ph.D. degree programs, which allow
entering students maximum flexibility in achieving their
career goals. Prospective Ph.D. students should carefully
review the two programs and contact the respective faculty
representatives before applying for admission (BMB Pro-
gram: Dr. B.M. Dunn; Interdisciplinary Program: Dr. P.J.
Laipis).
The research expertise of the faculty spans the areas from
cell biology, metabolism, and molecular biology to physi-
cal biochemistry/structural biology. Current research inter-
ests include viral protease inhibitors, viral RNA replication,
bioenergetics and proton translocation, X-chromosome
structure and function, cytoskeletal assembly and dynam-
ics, enzyme mechanism and control, chromatin structure,
gene expression and regulation, mitochondrial biogenesis
and evolution, genetics of inherited disease, nutrient mem-
brane transporters, protein site-directed mutagenesis, ribo-
some structure and function, signal transduction, and struc-
tural biology of macromolecules. The individual faculty
Web pages contain more specific descriptions and current
publications.
Prospective graduate students applying to the departmen-
tal program should have adequate training in organic,
quantitative, and physical chemistry as well as in physics,
biology, and calculus. Minor deficiencies may be made up
immediately after entering graduate school. Previous un-
dergraduate experience in a research laboratory is recom-
mended. Doctoral candidates are required to take three
core biochemistry courses (BCH 6206, 6415, 6740), as well
as BCH 6936. Depending upon interests and background of
the student, additional advanced level courses within or
outside the Department may be recommended by the

The biomedical engineering (BME) program is interdisci-
plinary, focusing on four principal areas: biomaterials;
biomechanics; molecular, cellular, and tissue engineering;
and biomedical imaging and signal processing. Partnering
with engineering in the BME program are several clinical
departments in the College of Medicine.
The College of Engineering administers the program. An
executive committee consisting of the Deans of the Colleges
of Engineering, Medicine, and the Graduate School provides
program guidance and oversight. The Biomedical Engineer-
ing Program Committee comprised of faculty from the
Colleges of Engineering and Medicine, selected by the deans
of those colleges, manages the program. A program director,
appointed by the Dean of Engineering, serves as chair.
Biomedical engineering students are admitted to the Gradu-
ate School through their home departments (Aerospace
Engineering, Mechanics and Engineering Science, Agricul-
tural and Biological Engineering, Chemical Engineering,
Civil Engineering, Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering,
Computer and Information Science and Engineering, Electri-
cal and Computer Engineering, Environmental Engineering
Sciences, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Materials
Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Nuclear
and Radiological Engineering), but they must fulfill the BME
program degree requirements. Beyond the Graduate School
requirements, admission to graduate work in the BME
program depends upon the qualifications of the student,
whose record and recommendations are considered. Each
student's research adviser (supervisory committee chair)
must be a Graduate Faculty member of the BME program.
Doctoral students are supervised by a five member supervi-
sory committee that must include at least three Graduate


I





BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING / 81


Faculty from the BME program. Supervisory committees
normally include one faculty member from the College of
Medicine or from a health related profession outside the
College of Engineering.
Course work and research experience are organized around
one of the four fields of specialization described previously.
The focus of the program is to obtain a solid engineering
background with an understanding of how basic engineering
principles apply to a diversity of biomedical applications.
Students are expected to select an area of study by the end
of their first semester.
M.S. students take a total of 30 credit hours in the thesis
option and 32 credit hours in the nonthesis option, which
includes 11 (nonthesis) or 9 (thesis) credits of BME courses,
12 credits of BME courses from their area of specialization,
and 9 biomedical engineering elective credits, that can
include up to 6 research credits. Ph.D. students are required
to fulfill the M.S. course work requirements plus an addi-
tional 18 BME elective credits for a total of 90 hours, which
may include up to 50 research credits. The core courses
required of all BME students include Introduction to Bio-
medical Engineering and Physiology I and II, Clinical
Shadowing, and Seminar. The program has major ongoing
research in areas such as biomaterials, medical imaging,
orthopedics, anesthesiology, neuroscience, transplantation,
and cardiology. These programs provide strong support for
the academic dimensions. A web page, that is maintained
at http://www.bme.ufl.edu, contains additional information
on admissions requirements, faculty and research projects.
Joint Program.-Biomedical Engineering also offers a com-
bined bachelor's/master's degree program. This program
allows qualified students to earn both a bachelor's degree
and a master's degree with a savings of one semester.
