GENERAL INFORMATION / 3


UNIVERSITY OF


FLORIDA


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 dedicated to the common pursuit of the University's
threefold mission: education, research, and service.
Teaching-undergraduate and graduate through the doctor-
ate-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 knowledge 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 international
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 tradition of
great universities. We participate in an elaborate conversation
among scholars and students that extends over space and time
linking the experiences ofWestern Europe with the traditions and
histories of all cultures, that explores the limits of the physical and
biological universes, and that nurtures and prepares generations
of educated people to address the problems of our societies. While
this university recognizes no limits on its intellectual 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 fun-
damental educational mission of teaching students. The under-
graduate experience, based in the arts and sciences, remains at the
core of higher education in America. The formation of educated
people, the transformation of mind through learning, and the
launching of a lifetime of intellectual growth: these goals remain
central to every university. 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 educa-
tion 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: colleges 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
education to include advanced or graduate study leading to the
Ph.D. Most American universities also include a variety of
undergraduate and graduate professional programs and master's
degree programs. The University of Florida shares these tradi-
tions. 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 descrip-
tion takes on the style of a ritual incantation: rhythmic, reverent,
and infrequently examined. 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 unam-
biguously 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 qualitywe 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 investment
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 institu-
tion, 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 constitu-
encies. We exist, then, within the public sector, responsible and
responsive to the needs of the citizens of our state. The obliga-
tions we assume as a public university determine many of our
characteristics.
We have many more undergraduates than graduates; we re-
spond quickly to the needs of the state's economy; we accommo-





4 / GENERAL INFORMATION


date complex linkages with other state universities, community
colleges, and K-12 public and private institutions; and we operate
in cooperative symbiosis with our state's media. We also experi-
ence an often too-close interaction with the political process.
Private universities, 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 communication with
our many publics.

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

Land-Grant.-Florida belongs to the set of American univer-
sities 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 Univer-
sity has to come to recognize its commitment to translating the


benefit of abstract and theoretical knowledge into the market-
place 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 inven-
tion 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 dedi-
cate 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 understanding 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 experimental discoveries of the geneti-
cist, 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 interpre-
tation 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
ofresearch 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 interna-
tional public conversation about the advancement of knowledge.

THE GRADUATE SCHOOL / 5


THE GRADUATE SCHOOL




ORGANIZATION


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

effective transmission of knowledge for future
generations.

inquiry and critical analysis.

acquisition of skills contributing to success and leader-
ship in academic and creative arenas and in the world
of practice.

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 problems
in new environments, and for high standards of excel
lence in scholarly activity and professional practice.

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

a highly qualified, diverse student population.

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

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 stan-
dards of the Graduate School are established by the Graduate
Faculty. Any policy change must be approved by the graduate
deans and the Graduate Council. The Graduate School is respon-
sible for the enforcement of minimum general standards of
graduate work in the University and for the coordination of the
graduate programs of the various colleges and divisions of the
University. The responsibility for the detailed operations of
graduate programs is vested in the individual colleges, schools,
divisions, and departments. In most of the colleges an assistant
dean or other administrator is directly responsible for graduate
study in that college.
The Graduate Council assists the Dean in being the agent of the
Graduate Faculty forexecution ofpolicy related to graduate studyand
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 college) in which the graduate program is located with the
approval of the graduate dean.
No faculty member may serve on supervisory committees 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 ofArts 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 1998-
99, the total number of graduate degrees awarded was 2,513 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 1998-99, the University of Florida
awarded 434 Ph.D. degrees.


MISSION





6 / GENERAL INFORMATION


DEFINITIONS

Academic Degree.-Degree is the title to be conferred by the
University upon completion of the academic program, for ex-
ample, Doctor of Philosophy. Some degrees include the name of
the field of study (Master of Architecture, Master of Education).
Others (Master ofArts, Master ofScience) do not. Degree names
are listed below in boldface.
Graduate Program.-The program is the primary field of
study of a graduate student. This is the student's major. Programs
offered at the University of Florida are approved by the Graduate
Council, University Senate, and the Board of Regents. The
program name along with the degree appears on the student's
transcript. Programs are enumerated under the degree name in
the list below.
Concentration.-At the graduate level, the concentration is a
subprogram offered within a graduate major. Each concentration
is approved by the Graduate Council. The concentration, as well
as the degree and program, may appear on the student transcript.
Concentrations are listed in italics below their corresponding
programs.
Minor.-A minor is a block of course work completed in any
department, other than the major department, approved for
master's or doctoral programs as listed in this catalog. Ifa minor
is chosen, the supervisory committee must include a representa-
tive from the minor field. The minimum amount of credit
required for a minor varies from 6 to 15 credits according to the
program. The minor appears on the student's transcript along
with the program name and the degree awarded.
Specialization.-Specialization is an informal designation used
by departments to indicate areas of research or scholarly strength,
and has no formal significance. Track and emphasis are similar
unofficial terms. No tracks, emphases, or specializations appear
in official lists in this catalog or on the student transcript.
Graduate Certificate.-A department or similar administra-
tive unit may offer a graduate certificate along with a graduate
degree. The certificate indicates that the student took a required
number of courses in a special area. It requires Graduate Council
approval but is not listed on the student transcript.
Multi-College Programs.-When one degree program is of-
fered through more than one college, it is referred to as a multi-
college program.
Combined Degree Program.-This is a combined bachelor's
and master's degree program of study which allows an under-
graduate student to take graduate level courses prior to comple-
tion of the bachelor's degree and to count the graduate hours (6
to 21) toward both degrees. Students admitted into a combined
program normally have at least a 3.2 grade point average and a
score of at least 1100 on the verbal and quantitative portions ofthe
GRE. Each program must be approved by the Graduate Council
and the University Senate.
Cooperative Degree Program.-A course of study leading to
a graduate degree with more than one institution authorized to
provide course work.
Catalog Year.-The set of academic requirements a student
must fulfill is based on the rules in force in the academic year of
initial enrollment in a degree seeking status or, if the student takes


time off, the academic year ofreadmission. This is known as the
catalog year.
Joint Degree Program.-A course of study leading to a gradu-
ate degree and a professional degree or two graduate degrees in
different programs is called a joint degree program. The program
must be approved by the Graduate Council and normally 6 to 12
credit hours of graduate level courses are counted toward both
degrees. Joint degree programs are listed in this catalog.
Concurrent Degree Program.-Concurrent study on an
individualized basis leading to two graduate degrees in two
graduate programs or two master's degrees in the same major is
called a concurrent degree program. Such a program is initiated
by the student and requiresprior approval of each department and
the Graduate School. If the student is approved to pursue two
master's degrees, no more than 6 hours of course work from one
degree program may be applied toward meeting the requirements
for the second master's degree.

STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM PROGRAMS

Traveling Scholar Program.-A traveling scholar is a graduate
student who, by mutual agreement of the appropriate academic
authorities in both the sponsoring and hosting institutions,
receives a waiver of admission requirements and a guarantee of
acceptance of earned resident credits by the sponsoring institu-
tions. The program will enable a graduate student to take advan-
tage of the special resources available on another campus but not
available on his/her own campus. The student must obtain prior
approval by the graduate coordinator from the supervisory com-
mittee chair and the Dean of the Graduate School. Traveling
scholars are normally limited to one term on the campus of the
host university. Participation cannot be scheduled for the final
term. Interested students should contact the Graduate Student
Records Office, 304 Walker Hall.
Cooperative Degree Programs.-In certain degree programs,
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 Fac-
ulty members are available to students at the University ofFlorida.



INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE CERTIFICATES
AND CONCENTRATIONS

A number of graduate programs offer interdisciplinary en-
hancements in the form of concentrations, field research, or
graduate certificates. Those approved by the Graduate Council
are summarized on the following pages.

African Studies
The Center forAfrican Studies, a National Resource Center on
Africa, funded, in part, under Title VI of the Higher Education
Act, directs and coordinates interdisciplinary instruction, re-
search, and outreach related to Africa. In cooperation with
participating departments throughout the University, the Center
offers a Certificate in African Studies at both the master's and
doctoral levels. The curriculum provides a broad foundation for
students preparing for teaching or other professional careers in
which a knowledge of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships.-Students admit-
ted to the Graduate School in pursuit of degrees offered by
participating departments are eligible to compete for graduate
assistantships and Title VI Foreign Language and Area Studies
fellowships.
Extracurricular Activities.-The Center sponsors an annual
conference on an African topic, a weekly colloquium series-
BARAZA-with invited speakers, and a biweekly film series. The
Carter Lectures on Africa are held throughout the academic year.
The Center also directs an extensive out-reach program addressed
to public schools, community colleges, and universities nation-
wide.
Library Resources.-The Center for African Studies provides
direct support for African library acquisitions to meet the instruc-
tional and research needs of its faculty and students. The Africana


Collection numbers over 80,000 volumes. The Map Library
contains 360,000 maps and 165,000 serial photographs and
satellite images and is among the top five academic African map
libraries in the U.S.
Graduate Certificate Program.-The Center forAfrican Stud-
ies, in cooperation with participating departments, offers a Cer-
tificate in African Studies in conjunction with the master's and
doctoral degrees.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the
Center should be addressed to the Director, Center for African
Studies, 427 Grinter Hall, or visit the Center website at http://
www.africa.ufl.edu.


Agroforestry
The agroforestry interdisciplinary concentration is adminis-
tered through the School of Forest Resources and Conservation.
It offers facilities for interdisciplinary graduate 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 concentration 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 Conservation or
another department that closely represents their background and
interest. Course work may be chosen from several related disci-
plines. 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
concentration or minor in agroforestry by fulfilling certain re-
quirements. Students who have a primary interest in agroforestry
and undertake graduate research on an agroforestry topic can seek
the concentration. 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 Concentration 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 depart-
ment 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 background are encouraged to take courses in the social
sciences, and vice versa.
Candidates for the concentration 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 selection of courses
and the research topic.
Further information may be obtained from the Agroforestry
Program Leader at 118 Newins-Ziegler Hall, (352) 846-0880, fax
(352) 846-1277, and e-mail pkn@gnv.ifas.ufl.edu.









Animal Molecular and Cell Biology
The interdisciplinary concentration in Animal Molecular and
Cell Biology (AMCB) provides graduate students in the animal
and veterinary sciences with an understanding of principles of
molecular and cell biology and their application to animal health
and production. Emphasis is placed on participation in molecular
and cell biology research and on providing an intellectual environ-
ment in which cross-fertilization between disciplines can flourish.
Graduate faculty from the Departments ofAnimal Science, Dairy
and Poultry Sciences, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and
Zoology and the College of Veterinary Medicine participate in
the program. The AMCB affords graduate students access to
diverse research facilities required for studies in cellular and
molecular biology, reproductive biology, virology, immunology,
and endocrinology. Facilities include those for recombinant
DNA research, experimental surgery, in vitro culture of cells,
tissue and organ explants, manipulation of embryos, vaccine
production, and recombinant protein engineering.
Ph.D. degrees are awarded through participating departments
with the interdisciplinary concentration in animal molecular and
cell biology. Typical entering students will have a strong back-
ground in the animal or veterinary sciences. Graduate degree
programs are designed by each student's faculty advisory commit-
tee, headed by the major adviser who is affiliated with the AMCB.
All students are required to complete a core curriculum, obtain
cross-disciplinary training through rotations in laboratories of
participating faculty, participate in the recombinant DNA work-
shop offered by the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology
Research, and participate in the AMCB seminar series.
Requirements for admission into theAMCB are the same as for
the faculty adviser's home department and college. Financial
assistance for graduate study is available through assistantships
and fellowships from departmental sources and the AMCB.
Contact the Director (D. C. Sharp, Department of Animal
Science) or Codirector (F. A. Simmen, Department of Dairy and
Poultry Sciences) for more information.

14 / GENERAL INFORMATION


Ecological Engineering
The Graduate Certificate in Ecological Engineering is for
graduate engineering students wishing to develop expertise in
ecological solutions to engineering problems. Students interested
in the certificate must apply for admission to the program through
The Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences. The
program is open to individuals in any graduate program who hold
an undergraduate engineering degree, or who complete addi-
tional undergraduate engineering articulation courses. This
additional course work is required to bring the student's back-
ground to the minimum level required for engineers by the
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
The program consists of a minimum of 15 semester hours of
course credit, and a research project with content materially
related to some aspect of ecological engineering. If appropriate,
the 15 semester hours of graduate course credit may count toward
the minimum requirements for the graduate degree. The student's
terminal project, master's thesis, or an individual studies project
may serve to satisfy the ecological engineering project require-
ment. For more information, contact the graduate coordinator in
the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences, P.O.
Box 116450, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611 or call
(352)392-9377.

Geographic Information Sciences
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have revolutionized
the way that land features are located, measured, inventoried,
managed, planned, and studied. GIS provides the theories and
methods for original measurements of location and topography,
physical and biological attributes, and distribution of cultural
components through data storage, analysis, modeling, mapping,
and data display. GIS applications are diverse. They include
determining the suitability of land for different uses, planning
future land uses for different objectives, setting cadastral bound-
aries for the purpose of property recognition and taxation and
regulation, analyzing land and land-cover properties for both
resource inventories and scientific studies, and siting commercial
enterprises.
Users and producers of GIS include engineers, geographers,
urban and regional planners, biologists and ecologists, land
resource managers, anthropologists and archaeologists, sociolo-
gists, public health professionals and medical researchers, county
land-management and property tax assessors, law enforcement
officers, land-development companies, utility companies, retail
stores, and others. Undergraduate and graduate students who
learn to use GIS technology are in high demand and so start at
higher salaries than their non-GIS peers. As a result the GIS
community at the University of Florida has developed the Inter-
disciplinary Concentration for Geographic Information Sci-
ences (ICGIS).
The ICGIS is designed to integrate existing GIS resources on
campus, for graduate students, as a response to changing regula-
tory environments in institutions and governments at all levels.
This new concentration has established a standard set of courses
and activities that would allow graduate students to become
experts in the creation, study, and use of geographic information.


Such graduates would be in strong positions to meet future
regulatory requirements for certification as professionals. Struc-
turally, the ICGIS has established a five-category curriculum that
would add several courses to the standard M.S., M.A., M.E., or
Ph.D. requirements and would result in official recognition of
having completed the GIS concentration by statements on tran-
scripts and a certificate
For more information, contact Dr. Scot E. Smith, University
of Florida, P.O. Box 116580, Gainesville, FL 32611, telephone
(352)392-4652, e-mail ses@ce.ufl.edu.


Gerontological Studies
Through the Center for Gerontological Studies, affiliated with
the Institute on Aging, students and faculty from diverse disci-
plines may study or conduct research in gerontology.
Programs are developed both within and outside the Univer-
sity to benefit older persons and to develop career-related experi-
ences for graduate and professional students. The Center for
Gerontological Studies offers the minor in gerontology and the
Graduate Certificate in Gerontology for master's, specialist, and
doctoral students in conjunction with graduate programs in a
variety of disciplines and professions. For the minor, students
must complete 6 (at the master's level) or 12 (at the doctoral level)
hours of approved aging courses outside their major department,
including GEY 6646, the required graduate-level core course.
Certificate requirements include a minimum of 12 hours in
approved gerontology courses and an approved interdisciplinary
research project in gerontology or a topic related to geriatrics. A
limited number of graduate assistantships for students accepted
into the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology program are avail-
able from the Center.
The Center disseminates information derived from research
on gerontology-related aspects of education, exercise science,
geography, health administration, humanities, law, medicine,
nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, psychology, recreation,
sociology, and other fields. Courses in gerontology are available in
the above areas.
The Center and Institute sponsor special conferences on
gerontology and several in-service training workshops and semi-
nars for academic and continuing education credit.

Latin American Studies
The Center for Latin American Studies coordinates teaching,
research, and service activities related to Latin America and the
Caribbean.
Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Studies. -The
master's degree offered through the Center is available in two
versions, both of which require a 15-credit major concentration.
The disciplinary concentration emphasizes training and research
in area and language studies, which develop a greater under-
standing of Latin America's cultures and societies. Students
concentrate in one department, which may be Anthropology,
Economics, Food and Resource Economics, Geography, History,
Political Science, Romance Languages and Literatures (Spanish),
or Sociology. This option is especially suited to the needs of
students who wish to obtain a well-rounded 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 Ameri-
can problems. Students may concentrate in Andean studies,
Brazilian studies, Caribbean studies, international communica-
tions, religion and society, and tropical conservation and develop-
ment. 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 Creole); and (3) a thesis on an
interdisciplinary Latin American topic.
Although the M.A. in Latin American studies is a terminal
degree, many past recipients have entered the Ph.D. programs in
related disciplines from which they prepare for university teach-





16 / GENERAL INFORMATION


ing careers. Other graduates are employed in the foreign service,
educational and research institutions, international organiza-
tions, government agencies, nonprofit corporations, and private
companies in the United States and Latin America.

in tropical agriculture is available at both the master's and doctoral
levels for students majoring in agriculture, forestry, and other
fields where knowledge of the tropics is relevant. The minor may
include courses treating specific aspects of the tropics such as
natural resource management (e.g., soils, water, biodiversity),
climate, agricultural production, and the languages and cultures
of those who live in tropical countries.


Certificate in Tropical Agriculture (CTA).-A program em-
phasizing breadth in topics relevant to tropical agriculture (with
certificate) for graduate students is available through the College
ofAgricultural and Life Sciences. The CTA is designed to prepare
students for work in situations requiring knowledge of both the
biological and social aspects of tropical agriculture. Students
entering the program will receive guidance from members of the
CTA Steering Committee regarding course work appropriate for
careers in international agricultural development.
The CTA requires a minimum of 12 credit hours. The "typical"
certificate program will consist of 12 to 24 credits. These hours
may, with approval from supervisory committees, also count
toward the M.S. or Ph.D. While foreign language abilities and
work experience in a foreign country are strongly encouraged,
they are not requisites for the CTA.
Application brochures are available from the Office of the
Dean for Academic Programs (College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences), 2014 McCarty Hall.

thorities on the tropics; publication of books, monographs, and
proceedings; and through acquisition of materials for the library
and the data bank.


Tropical Studies
The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a consortium
of 50 major educational and research institutions in the United
States and abroad, created to promote understanding of tropical
environments and their intelligent use by people. The University
of Florida is a charter member. Graduate field courses in tropical
biology and ecology, agricultural ecology, population biology,
and forestry are offered in Costa Rica and Brazil during the spring
and summer terms. Students are selected on a competitive basis
from all OTS member institutions.
A University of Florida graduate student may register for eight
credits in an appropriate departmental course cross-listed with
OTS, e.g., BOT 6951, PCB 6357C, or AGG 6933. The
University of Florida does not require tuition for OTS courses.
Registration is on the host campus. However,
students on Graduate Assistantships must be registered at the
University of Florida as well. Research grants are available through
OTS. Further information may be obtained from University of
Florida representatives to the OTS board of directors, located in

Women's and Gender Studies
The doctoral-level interdisciplinary concentration in women's
and gender studies provides graduate students an
opportunity to develop a thorough grounding in the new
scholarship produced through the intersection of women's stud-
ies and other academic fields. The concentration facilitates the
analysis and assessment of theories about the role of gender in
cultural systems and its intersections with other categories of
differences, such as race, ethnicity, religion, class, sexuality,
physical and mental ability, age, economicand civil status. Em-
phasis is on participating in women's and gender studies research
and on providing an intellectual environment in which cross-
fertilization between disciplines can flourish. Women's and gen-
der studies critically explore the role and status of women and
men, past and present.
Graduate faculty from several departments and colleges,
campuswide, participate. Among the academic units represented
are Agricultural and Life Sciences, Anthropology, Counselor
Education, English, German and Slavic Studies, History, Jour-


nalism and Communications, Latin American Studies, Linguis-
tics, Medicine, Nursing, Philosophy, Psychology, Religion, Ro-
mance Languages and Literatures, Sociology, and Teaching and
Learning.
Ph.D. degrees are awarded through participating departments
with the interdisciplinary concentration in women's and gender
studies. Graduate degree programs are designed by each student's
committee, headed by the supervisory chair who is affiliated with
women's/gender studies.
Requirements for admission are the same as for the student's
home department and college. After admission to the degree
granting department, the application is sent by the department to
the Director of Women's and Gender Studies who will chair an
admissions committee.
The Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies is described in
the Fields ofInstruction section of this catalog.

RESIDENCY

Classification of Students Florida or Non-Florida (6A-10.044,
Florida Administrative Code) Residency for Tuition Purposes.
The State Board of Community Colleges and the Board of
Regents shall maintain consistent policies and practices for the
classification of students as residents for tuition purposes to
facilitate the transfer of students among institutions. The policies
and practices may vary to accommodate differences in gover-
nance, but the determinations of classification shall be consistent
to assure students of being classified the same regardless of the
institution determining the classification.
(1) The classification of a student as a Florida resident for
tuition purposes by a public Florida community college or
university shall be recognized by other public postsecondary
institutions to which the student may later seek admission, unless
the classification was erroneous or the student did not then qualify
as a resident for tuition purposes.
(2) Once a student has been classified by a public institution,
institutions to which the student may transfer are not required to
reevaluate the classification unless inconsistent information sug-
gests that an erroneous classification was made or the student's
situation has changed.
(3) Changes the State Board of Community Colleges and the
Board of Regents intend to make in the policies and practices for
the classification ofstudents as residents for tuition purposes, shall
be filed with the Articulation Coordinating Committee.
(4) Non-U.S. citizens such as permanent residents, parolees,


asylees, refugees, or other permanent status persons (e.g., condi-
tional permanent residents and temporary residents), who have
applied to and have been approved by the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service with no date certain for departure shall be
considered eligible to establish Florida residency for tuition
purposes. In addition, nonimmigrants holding one of the follow-
ing visas shall be considered eligible to establish Florida residency
for tuition purposes. Persons in visa categories not listed herein

Student Residency.
(1) For the purpose of assessing tuition, residency and non-
residency status shall be determined as provided in Section
240.1201, Florida Statutes, and the Florida State University










System Residency Policy and Procedure Manual (Revised Effec-
tive October 17,2000), incorporated by reference herein.
(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 evi-
dence 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, or any other relevant materials as evi-
dence that the applicant has maintained 12 months residence
immediately prior to qualification 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 aforemen-
tioned documents. In addition, the university may require a
notarized copy of the parent's IRS return. "Resident student" for
tuition purposes classification shall also be construed to include
students to whom an Immigration Parolee card or a Form 1-94
(Parole Edition) was issued at least one year prior to the first day
of classes for which resident student status is sought, or who have
had their resident alien status approved by the United States
Immigration and Naturalization Service, or who hold an Immi-
gration and Naturalization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of an
approved adjustment ofstatus application, or Cuban Nationals or
Vietnamese Refugees or other refugees or asylees so designated by
the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service who
are considered as Resident Aliens, or other legal aliens, provided
such students meet the residency requirements stated above and
comply with subsection (4) below. The burden of establishing
facts which justify classification of a student as a resident and
domiciliary entitled to "resident for tuition purposes" 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

(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true, fixed, and perma-
nent 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, under oath, that the applicant is a bona fide resident

dent aliens or who are in the United States on a non-immigration
visa will not be entitled to reclassification. An application for
reclassification 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 Rule 6C-
7.005(1) to the satisfaction of the registering authority that the
applicant has maintained residency in the state for the twelve
months immediately prior to qualification 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 reclassifi-
cation 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 reclassifica-
tion and the necessary documentation is not received by the
registrar prior to the last day of registration for the term in which
the student intends to be reclassified, the student will not be
reclassified for that term.

All U.S. citizens, permanent residents and others included in
Section 4 of the Board of Regents Rule 6a-10.044 above are
eligible to apply for Florida residency. Although Florida residency
normally cannot be obtained until the student has resided in the
state for approximately one year, the application process should be
initiated immediately.
Residency for tuition purposes is controlled exclusively by laws
enacted by the Florida Legislature. For the purpose of assessing
tuition, residency and nonresidency status shall be determined as
provided in Classification of Students Florida or Non-Florida
(Section 6A-10.044, Florida Administrative Code), Section
240.1201, Florida Statutes, and the Florida State University
System Residency Policy and Procedure Manual [revised effective
October 17, 2000]. The law may be found in its entirety on line
at http://www.leg.state.fl.us/citizen/documents/statutes/. The
residency review staff members in the Office of the University
Registrar are not authorized to provide guidance on methods of
obtaining residency. Their role is to review applications for
Florida resident status, together with supportive documentation,
and to render a decision based on the documentation and the
requirements of Florida law.






22 / GENERAL INFORMATION


This law, the rules, and the implementation manual presume
that students who are initially classified as nonresident will not be
reclassified as residents merely by being enrolled for one year.
Physical residence in Florida that is merely incidental to enroll-
ment in a college is not sufficient, under Florida law, to obtain
reclassification. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to
provide all appropriate documentation to merit a reclassification
for tuition purposes.
On arrival in Gainesville, a student wishing to establish resi-
dency should pick up the Request for Change in Residency Status
form from the Office of the University Registrar, S222 Criser
Hall, to review the information and items that may be requested
when the student files for Florida residency for tuition purposes
after residing in the state for 12 months. Also, the student should
file the Declaration of Domicile form at the Alachua County
Administrative Building (corner of University Avenue and Main
Street), Official Records Office, Room 101, upon arrival in
Gainesville, and should keep the receipt, to be attached later to the
request for change form. The student should obtain a Florida
driver's license or I.D., Florida voter's I.D., Florida vehicle
registration, or other applicable documents as soon as possible. It
is also advisable to close bank accounts and relinquish driver's
licenses in other states. Evidence of employment, particularly
employment unrelated to the University should be kept as well as
other documents that are supportive of reclassification (e.g.,
receipts of utility deposits and rental agreements).
In most cases, application for reclassification cannot be made
to the Office of the University Registrar until after 12 months of
residency. However, there are cases based on spousal relationship
that may allow for an earlier application. Students who believe
that they may qualify under these circumstances should check
with the Registrar's office on arrival.


INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
All international students seeking admission to the Graduate
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 exceptions:
1. International students whose native tongue is English or who
have spent at least one academic year at a college or university in
a country where English is the official language, excluding inten-
sive English language programs, need not submit TOEFL scores
but must submit satisfactory scores on the General Test of the
Graduate Record Examination before their applications for
admission can be considered.
2. All international students applying for admission for the
Master of Business Administration program must submit satisfac-
tory scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test
before their applications for admission will be considered.
International students whose scores on the TOEFL and verbal
portion of the GRE are not satisfactory are required to write a
short essay for examination. If the skills demonstrated in the essay
are not acceptable for pursuing graduate work, the examination
will be used as a diagnostic tool for placement in appropriate
courses which will not count toward a graduate degree.


Graduate students whose native language is not English must
submit satisfactory scores on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) or
the SPEAK Test to be eligible for teaching assignments. Students
who score 55 or above are allowed to teach in the classroom,
laboratory, or other appropriate instructional 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. Stu-
dents who fail to score 45 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 of45 or higher to be
appointed to teach, and they come under the guidelines described
above.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing Service,
Princeton, NJ 08540, for registration forms and other informa-
tion concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT, and GRE. Students may
register for the locally administered SPEAK test with the Aca-
demic 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 Rehabilitation Act of 1973,
as amended, is Deborah Casey-Powell, Assistant Dean for Stu-
dent Services, 202 Peabody Hall, (352)392-1261. The desig-
nated coordinator for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
is Kenneth J. Osfield, Assistant in the Office ofAcademic Affairs,
232 Stadium, (352)392-7056, (352)846-1046 (TDD).
The Dean of Students, Office for Students with Disabilities
provides assistance for students with disabilities. Services are
varied depending on individual needs and include, but are not
limited to, individual campus orientation, academic accommoda-
tions, help in securing auxiliary learning aids, and assistance in
general University activities. Students with disabilities are encour-
aged to contact this office located in 202 Peabody Hall.


VETERANS ADMINISTRATION AND SOCIAL
SECURITY ADMINISTRATION BENEFITS
INFORMATION

The University of Florida is approved for the education and
training of veterans, spouses, or dependents of veterans (100%
disabled or deceased service connected), by the Florida Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs. There are 10 federal public laws cur-
rently providing education/job training programs for DVA (De-
partment of Veterans Affairs) eligible students. The four pro-
grams serving most students are Chapter 30 for U.S. Military
Veterans, Chapter 31 for Disabled U.S. Military Veterans, Chap-
ter 35 for the Spouse and Children of Deceased or 100% Disabled
Veterans (service connected), and Chapter 1606 for personnel in






POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS / 23


the National Guard or U.S. Military Reserves. Students may
contact the Office of the University Registrar or the DVA
counseling center for specific program information such as terms
of payment, months of eligibility, and an additional allowance
under the DVA work-study program.
University of Florida students who may be eligible for a
particular DVA educational program must obtain and submit a
completed Application for Educational Benefits to the Office of
the University Registrar. This office then certifies the student for
full-time (undergraduate 12 hours, graduate 9 hours) or part-time
educational benefits in accordance with DVA rules and regula-
tions. TheAtlanta Regional Processing Office ofthe U.S. Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs will make a determination of eligibility
based on official service records, evidence submitted by the
student, and applicable laws for veterans. Students who have
already established their DVA program eligibility at another
college or university must submit a completed Change ofProgram
or Place of Training form to the University Registrar, as well as a
University of Florida Certification of Enrollment Request. All
forms are available at the Registrar Information Counter in S222
Criser Hall. This office can also provide confirmation of student
status for DVA health care or other benefits.
There are conditions for interruption or termination of ben-
efits for a DVA student for unsatisfactory grades or progress. A
graduate student is on probation as long as his/her grade point
average is below 3.0 (B). If a student is dismissed (record hold) for
unsatisfactory progress or poor grades, he/she may petition his/
her department chair for readmission. The first time a graduate
student's grade point average falls below 3.0, he/she is warned.
The second time it falls below a 3.0 average, the DVA is notified
of termination for DVA pay purposes.
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 credit hours or more during fall or
spring semester or 8 credit hours during summer term C.
A full-time graduate load for DVA or Social Security benefits
is 9 hours per semester.


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 graduate degree to
enroll in courses-included in this category would be students
who change their professional goals or wish to expand their
academic backgrounds-and (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 ofA, B+,
or B.
For the College of Education, only students who have com-
pleted a baccalaureate program in the College may be admitted to
postbaccalaureate status for the purpose of completing a teacher
certification program. Other applicants may be admitted to
postbaccalaureate status only for a limited time to fulfill prereq-
uisites for admission to a master's program. Applicants seeking
teacher certification, with degrees in other fields, should apply for
admission to a master's program in the College of Education.
More information is available on the Registrar's website http://
www.reg.ufl.edu/brochures/post/postbacc.htm


NONDEGREE REGISTRATION

Nondegree enrollment is restricted to participants in special
programs, off-campus programs, University-affiliated exchange
programs, and those participants with nondegree educational
objectives at the University of Florida. Students who have been
denied admission to UF for any term are not eligible for nondegree
registration. Students must receive prior approval from the
departments) to take courses in a nondegree status. 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 regula-
tions on courses and credit, it is possible to transfer up to 15
semester hours of course work earned with the grade ofA, B+, or B.


READMISSION

This information applies only to students who have been
admitted to a graduate program and attended the University.
Former graduate students who do not enroll at the University for
two consecutive terms, including any summer term, must reapply
for admission whether to the same or a different program.
Readmission, however, is not guaranteed and is subject to the
availability of space at the appropriate level, college or major.
Therefore, it is strongly advised that students who wish to take a
leave of absence for two or more consecutive terms obtain prior
written approval from their departments. Students who skip a
single term will be scheduled automatically for a registration
appointment for one additional term. Readmission applications
are available from the Office of Admissions, P.O. Box 114000,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-4000.


FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE STUDENTS

ward the degree.
The first and fourth years are funded by the Graduate School.
The second and third years are funded by the student's depart-
ment 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 disci-
plines, 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 (Ph.D., Ed.D., or
M.F.A.). The program is intended primarily to attract outstand-

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 require-
ments, and the offerings and requirements of the major depart-
ment. Ignorance of a rule does not constitute a basis for waiving
that rule. Any exceptions to the policies stated in the Graduate
Catalog must be approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but before the first
registration, the student should consult the college and/or the
graduate coordinator in the major department concerning courses
and degree requirements, deficiencies if any, and special regula-
tions of the department. The dean of the college in which the
degree program is located or a representative must have oversight
for all registrations. Once a supervisory committee has been
appointed, registration approval should be the responsibility of
the committee chair.


CATALOG YEAR
Catalog year determines the set of academic requirements that
must be fulfilled for graduation. Students graduate under the
catalog in effect at the time of their initial enrollments as degree-
seeking students at the University of Florida provided they
maintain continuous enrollment. Students who do not maintain
continuous enrollment (two or more consecutive terms) must
reapply for admission and will be assigned the catalog in effect at
the time enrollment is resumed. Students with the approval of
their college dean's office may opt to graduate under the require-
ments of a later catalog, but they must fulfill all graduation
requirements from that alternative year. The University will
make every reasonable effort to honor the curriculum require-
ments appropriate to each student's catalog year. However,
courses and programs will sometimes be discontinued and re-
quirements may change as a result of curricular review or actions
by accrediting associations and other agencies.

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

Currently enrolled students must contact the appropriate
agency(ies) to restrict release ofdirectory information. The Office
of the University Registrar, the Division of Housing, and Univer-
sity Personnel Services routinely release directory 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 restriction 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 authorized
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 indi-
viduals 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 recognition 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.
Ifa 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, available at http://www.dso.ufl.edu, 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 member-
ship in a university community and are subject to the responsibili-
ties that accompany that membership. In order to have a system
ofeffective 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://dso.ufl.edu/stg/ and are set forth in Florida
Administrative Code. Questions should be directed to the Dean
of Students Office in 202 Peabody Hall, (352)392-1261.


REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS
The University of Florida operates on a semester system con-
sisting of two 16-week periods and two 6-week summer terms. A
credit under the semester system is equal to 1.5 quarter credits.
Graduate Students on Appointment.-Required registra-
tion for fellows and trainees with stipends of $3,150 or greater is
12 credits. Fellows whose stipends are less than $3,150 must
register for at least 3 credits during fall and spring semesters and
2 credits for summer. Any additional credits are at the expense of
the student. The full-time registration requirement is reduced
for those students who are graduate assistants. For students on
appointment for the full summer, registration must total that
specified for C term. Registration may be in any combination of
A, B, or C terms. However, courses must be distributed so that
the student is registered during each term that he/she is on
appointment.

Financial Affairs. Check with Student Financial Affairs in S-107 Criser
Hall for financial aid registration requirements. See FinancialAid.

Graduate Students Not on Appointment.-Students, not on
appointment, must be registered for at least 12 credits to be
considered full time. Part-time status may be approved by the
graduate coordinator or supervisory chair for students who are not
pursuing a degree on a full-time basis. The minimum registra-
tion for part-time students, not on appointment, is 3 credits
during fall and spring and 2 credits for summer.
State Employee Registration.-See Waiver of Fees else-
where in this catalog.
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses.-Up-
per-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 stand-
ing, 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.
Final Term Registration.-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 stu-
dents 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.
Cleared Prior.--Students exempt from final term registra-
tion must meet all of the following conditions before the start
of the first day of classes: 1) correctly registered in the preceding

CHANGE OF GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM

A graduate student who wishes to change majors, whether in
the same or a different college, must submit a completed Change
of Degree Program for Graduate Students form to the Graduate
School. The form must be signed by an authorized representative
of the new department and college and then submitted to the
Graduate School for processing.


COURSES AND CREDITS

Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be used as any part
of the graduate degree requirements. All 1000- and 2000-level
courses may be taken on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis (S/U).
Six hours of undergraduate courses (3000-4999), outside the
major department, may be used for support course work when
taken as part of an approved graduate program..
Courses numbered 5000 and above are limited to graduate
students, with the exception described under Undergraduate Regis-
tration in Graduate Courses. Courses numbered 7000 and above are
designed primarily for advanced graduate students.
No more than five hours each of6910 (Supervised Research) and
6940 (Supervised Teaching) may be taken by a graduate student at
the University of Florida. Students who have taken five hours of
6910 cannot take 6910; the rule also applies to 6940 and 7940.
A complete list of approved graduate courses appears in the
section of this catalog entitled Fields oflnstruction. Departments
reserve the right to decide which of these graduate courses will be
offered in a given semester and the departments should be
consulted concerning available courses.
Generally 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.
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 coordi-
nators certify that the course work is appropriate for their pro-
grams and when the students receive permission from the depart-
ments and colleges offering the courses. A list ofsuch courses for each
student must be filed with the Graduate School Records Office.





GENERAL REGULATIONS / 29


GRADES


The only passing grades for graduate students areA, B+, B, C+,
C, and S. C+ and C grades count toward a graduate degree if an
equal number ofcredit 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. All letter-graded
courses taken as a graduate student, except 1000 and 2000 level
courses, are used in calculating the grade-point average.
Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.-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 supervi-
sory 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 Committee and the
Graduate School. This grade may be used only in special situa-
tions 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 dur-
ing 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 put that
employment or fellowship in jeopardy. Under the Collective
Bargaining Agreement, the Graduate School cannot continue
beyond one probationary semester to approve students to con-
tinue 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.


UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP
Any graduate student may be denied further registration in the
University or in a graduate program should scholastic perfor-
mance 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 addi-
tion to an overall GPA of 3.0, a graduate student must also have
a 3.0 GPA in his/her major (as well as in a minor if a minor is
declared) at the time of graduation.


FOREIGN LANGUAGE EXAMINATION
A foreign language examination is not required for all degree
programs and the student should contact the graduate coordina-
tor in the appropriate department for specific information regard-
ing any requirement of a foreign language.
If a department requires that a student meet the foreign
language requirement by satisfactory performance on the Gradu-
ate 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 pay-
ment of fees. The examination times and dates are listed in the
University Calendar. EducationalTesting Service (ETS) no longer
administers this examination and does not accept application fees
or issue tickets of admission for these tests.


EXAMINATIONS

The student must be registered for an appropriate load during
the semester in which any examination is taken. The student's
supervisory committee is responsible for the administration of the
written and oral qualifying examinations as well as the final oral
examination for the defense of the thesis, project, or dissertation.
All members of the supervisory committee must sign the appro-
priate 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 for the 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 admin-
istered at theAgricultural 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 commit-
tee, 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 technology to participate
rather than being physically present.

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 descrip-
tions 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, limitations on
transfer credit, on nonresident work, and on level of course work.
2. The candidate must have a grade average of B or higher in
the major and in all work attempted in the graduate program. All
grades of I, H, and X must be resolved. Grades of I, X, D, E, and

REQUIREMENTS FOR

MASTER'S DEGREES


GENERAL REGULATIONS

The following regulations represent those of the Graduate
School. Colleges and departments may have additional regula-
tions beyond those stated below. Unless otherwise indicated in
the following sections concerning master's degrees, these gen-
eral 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, super-
visory committee, or faculty representative 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 onlywith 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, 6 hours of courses
numbered 3000 or above may be taken provided they are part of
an approved plan of study.
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 ofA, B+, or B, may be
transferred from institutions approved for this purpose by the
Dean of the Graduate School. At least halfof 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 ofA, 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 require-
ments but the grades earned will not be computed in the student's
grade-point average. Acceptance of transfer of credit requires
approval of the student's supervisory committee and the Dean of
the Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree must be
made during the student's first term of enrollment in the Gradu-
ate School.
The responsibility rests with the supervisory committee to base
acceptance of graduate transfer credits on established 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





REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 31


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
initiated by the student, 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. Ifa 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 represen-
tatives 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 requirement of a reading
knowledge of a foreign language is at the discretion of the
department. The foreign language requirement varies from de-
partment to department and the student should check with the
appropriate department for specific information. (2) The ability
to use the English language correctly and effectively, as judged by
the supervisory committee, is required of all candidates.
Examination.-A final comprehensive examination must be
passed by the candidate. This examination must cover at least the
candidate's field of concentration and, in no case, may it be
scheduled earlier than the term preceding the semester in which
the degree is to be awarded. The comprehensive examination for
the nonthesis master's degree may be taken at a remote site. All
other examinations must be held on campus with all participants.
Time Limitation.-All work, including transferred credit,
counted toward the master's degree must be completed during the
seven years immediately preceding the date on which the degree
is awarded.
Leave of Absence.-A master's student who will not be
registered at the University of Florida for a period of two or more
semesters should obtain prior written approval from his/her
faculty adviser for a leave of absence for a designated period of
time. The student will be required to reapply for admission upon
his/her return. See Readmission and Catalog Year.




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 required
for a master's degree with thesis is 30 credits including up to 6
hours of the research course numbered 6971. All students seeking
a master's degree with thesis must register for an appropriate
number of hours in 6971.
The Graduate School requirement for a Master of Arts or
Master of Science degree taken with a nonthesis option is at least
32 credits. No more than 6 credits of S/U-graded courses may be
counted in meeting the minimum 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 ofat 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 examina-
tion 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) accept-
able to their supervisory committees and the Graduate School.
The candidate should consult the Graduate School Editorial
Office for instructions concerning the form of the thesis. The
University Calendar specifies final dates for submitting the origi-
nal copy of the thesis to the Graduate School.
Electronic Theses.-Students who enter in Fall 2001 and after
are required to submit their final theses electronically. Exceptions
are considered on a case-by-case basis when submitted in writing
by the department to the Graduate School. These exceptions are
intended for the student who is off-campus during the semester
the thesis is submitted. More information is available at http://
etd.circa.ufl.edu/calendar.html, http://rgp.ufl.edu/etd, or from
the Graduate School Editorial 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 permission must be
forwarded to the Graduate School at least one full semester prior
to the intended date of graduation. The candidate must meet all
the requirements of the nonthesis option as specified above. A
maximum of three credits earned with a grade of S in 6971
(Master's Research) can be counted toward the degree require-
ments only if converted to credit as A, B+, or B in Individual
Work. The supervisory committee must indicate that the work
was productive in and by itself and warrants credit as a special
problem or special topic course.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory 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





32 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 signature pages and the
Final Examination Report. These may be retained by the super-
visory chair until acceptable completion 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 or oral
examination on the major field of study and on the minor if a
minor is designated. This comprehensive examination 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. Conse-
quently, 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 department 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 approved for graduate credit by the Graduate School of


the University ofFlorida. 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 (including 30 for a prior master's degree) that
may be transferred 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 committee and bypetition 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 studentworking 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 ofthe supervisory committee, the
student may choose one or more minor fields. Minor work may
be completed in any department, other than the major depart-
ment, 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 depart-
ment 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 should obtain
prior written approval from his/her faculty adviser for a leave of
absence for a designated period of time. The student will be
required to reapply for admission upon his/her return. See
Readmission and Catalog Year.


SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE
Supervisory committees are nominated by the department
chairperson, approved by the dean of the college concerned, and
appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The committee
should be appointed as soon as possible after the student has
begun doctoral work and in general no later than the end of the
second semester of equivalent full-time study. The Dean of the
Graduate School is an ex-officio member of all supervisory
committees.





REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 33


Duties and Responsibilities.-Duties of the supervisory com-
mittee 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 informing himself/herself
concerning these regulations. (See Student Responsibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointment to review the quali-
fications of the student and to discuss and approve a program of
study.
3. To meet to discuss and approve the proposed dissertation
project and the plans for carrying it out.
4. To give the student ayearly 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 department, 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, including all members of the
supervisory committee shall be present with the candidate for this
examination. Only members of the official supervisory commit-
tee may sign the dissertation and they must approve the disserta-
tion unanimously. (See Examinations in the General Regulations
section of this catalog for variation in procedure.)
Membership.-The supervisory committee for a candidate
for the doctoral degree shall consist of no fewer than four members
selected from the Graduate Faculty. At least two members,
including the chair, will be from the department recommending
the degree, and at least one member will be drawn from a different
educational discipline.
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 committee to
function as a University committee, as contrasted with a depart-
mental committee, in order to bring University-wide standards to
bear upon the various doctoral degrees.
A cochair may be appointed to serve during a planned absence
of the chair.


LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
Any foreign language requirement for the Ph.D. is established
by the major department with approval of the college. The


student should check with the graduate coordinator of the appro-
priate department for specific information. The foreign language
departments offer special classes for graduate students who are
beginning the study of a language. See the current Schedule of
Courses for the languages in which this assistance is available.
The ability to use the English language correctly and effec-
tively, as judged by the supervisory committee, is required of all
candidates.


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 supervi-
sory 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 supervisory committee has the
responsibility at this time of deciding whether the student is
qualified to continue work toward a Ph.D. degree.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Graduate
School must be notified. A re-examination may be requested, but
it must be recommended by the supervisory committee and ap-
proved by the Graduate School. At least one semester of additional
preparation is considered essential 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 examina-
tion is passed is counted, provided that the examination occurs
before the midpoint of the term.

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
A graduate student does not become a candidate for the Ph.D.
degree until granted formal admission to candidacy. Such admis-
sion 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 aca-
demic record of the student, (2) the opinion of the supervisory
committee concerning overall fitness for candidacy, (3) an ap-
proved 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





34 / GENERAL INFORMATION


supervisory committee. A student may register for 7980 (Re-
search for Dissertation) in the term he or she is admitted to
candidacy for a doctoral degree.


DISSERTATION
Electronic Dissertation.-Students who enter in Fall 2001
and after are required to submit their final dissertations electroni-
cally. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis when
submitted in writing by the department to the Graduate School.
These exceptions are intended for the student who is off-campus
during the semester the dissertation is submitted. More informa-
tion is available at http://etd.circa.ufl.edu/calendar.html, http://
rgp.ufl.edu/etd, or from the Graduate School Editorial Office.
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. Dissertations 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.
Since all doctoral dissertations are 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 letter oftransmittal 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
dissertation (either electronic or printed on 100% cotton paper),
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 archiving. If the
manuscript is on paper, a second copy, reproduced on required
thesis paper, must be delivered to the Library or college for
hardbinding.
Electronic dissertations may be viewed athttp://web.uflib.edu/
etd.html.
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, S 113 Criser Hall, for microfilming
their dissertations, and to sign an agreement authorizing publica-
tion by microfilm.
Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copyright the
microfilmed dissertation for a charge of $45 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, candidates must give perma-
nent addresses through which they can always be reached.


GUIDELINES FOR RESTRICTION ON RELEASE OF
DISSERTATIONS
Research performed at the University can effectively contribute
to the education of our students and to the body of knowledge that
is our heritage only ifthe results ofthe research are published freely
and openly. Conflicts can develop when it is in the interests of
sponsors of university research to restrict such publication. When
such conflicts arise, the University must decide what compro-
mises it is willing to accept, taking into account the relevant
circumstances. 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 subse-
quent publication of these results, should be considered advisory
rather than mandatory.
2. The maximum delay in publication allowed for pre-reviews
should not exceed three months.
3. There should be no additional delays in publication beyond
the pre-review. Timely submission of any patent or copyright
applications should be the result of effective communication
between investigators and sponsors throughout the course of the
project.
4. There should be no restriction on participation in nonclas-
sified 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 candi-
date at the oral portion of this examination. At the time of the
defense all committee members should sign the ETD Submission
Approval form or signature pages and all committee and attend-
ing faculty members should sign the Final Examination Report.
These may be retained by the supervisory chair until acceptable
completion of corrections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adherence
to all Graduate School regulations outlined above complete the
requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation.-All work for the doctorate must be com-
pleted within five calendar years after the qualifying examination,
or this examination must be repeated.


CERTIFICATION
Doctoral candidates who have completed all requirements for
the degree, including satisfactory defense and final acceptance of
the dissertation, may request certification to that effect prior to
receipt of the degree. Certification request forms, available on the
Web athttp://rgp.ufl.edu/education/currentstudents.html, should





SPECIALIZED GRADUATE DEGREES / 35


be filled out by the candidate, signed by the supervisory chair and
college dean, and returned to the Graduate School for verification
and processing.

MASTER OF EDUCATION

The degree of Master of Education is a professional degree
designed to meet the need for professional personnel to serve a
variety of functions required in established and emerging educa-
tional activities of modern society. A thesis is not required.
A minimum of 36 credits is required in all master's programs
with at least half of these credits earned in courses in the College
of Education. No more than 6 credits earned from 3000- and
4000-level courses taken outside the department may be counted
toward the minimum requirements for the degree. (See also
General Requirementsfor Master's Degrees.)
At least 16 credits must be earned while the student is enrolled
as a graduate student in courses offered on the Gainesville campus
of the University of Florida, including registration for at least 6
credits in a single semester.


MASTER OF ENGINEERING

A student seeking a master's degree in the field of engineering
may become a candidate for the Master of Engineering degree
with or without thesis, provided such a candidate has a bachelor's
degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited curriculum or
has taken sufficient articulation course work to meet the mini-
mum requirements specified by ABET. Students who do not
meet this requirement 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 scientifi-
cally oriented and those who have science-based backgrounds to
seek the Master of Science degree.
Also, the Master of Civil Engineering degree has been ap-
proved as a variant of the Master of Engineering degree. The
M.C.E. is oriented specifically to the design and professional
practice in civil engineering. The degree requirements include a
minimum number of hours of design and professional practice
instruction at the 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 Engi-
neer 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 Department of Mechanical Engineering
requires a minimum of 33 credits of course work while Environ-
mental Engineering Sciences requires a minimum of34 credits of
course work for degrees without a thesis. Work in the major field
must be in courses numbered 5000 or above. For work outside the
major, courses numbered 3000 or above, not to exceed six credits,
may be taken provided they are part of an approved plan of study.
If a minor is chosen, at least six credits of work are required: two
six-credit minors may be taken. In addition, a multidisciplinary
minor in departments other than the major may be authorized by
the supervisory committee or program adviser.
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 Engineering
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

MASTER OF LATIN

The Classics Department of the University of Florida offers the
nonthesis Master of Latin degree, a 30 credit, program designed
primarily for currently employed, and/or certified teaching pro-
fessionals who wish to widen their knowledge of Latin, broaden
their education in the field of classics, and enhance their profes-
sional qualifications. This degree can be attained through a
program of summer course work at the University of Florida as
well as through directed independent study and/or distance
learning courses during the regular academic year. Students in the
Gainesville area may also enroll in regular graduate courses iftheir
schedules permit.
Students can complete the degree within four years by earning
six graduate credits each summer (total = 24), plus just two three-
credit independent study or distance learning courses during the
intervening academic years. Those who already have some gradu-
ate credit in Latin, or who can take more credits during the year,
can complete the degree more quickly.
This program of study is different from the M.A. degree in
Latin since it has no thesis requirement, does not prepare students
for Ph.D. level studies, and is aimed specifically at currently
employed and certified Latin teachers.
Admission.-Prospective students are advised to contact the
Department's Graduate Coordinator before making application.
Required for the admissions process are (1) an application form
for entrance to the University of Florida Graduate School, (2)
acceptable GRE scores, and (3) transcripts recording undergradu-
ate courses (and graduate courses, if any; students must demon-
strate the ability to take Latin course work at the graduate
level). Candidates for this degree normally should be experi-
enced Latin teachers, although this can be waived.
Degree Requirements.-This nonthesis degree requires a
minimum of 30 credits as a graduate student at the University of
Florida, ofwhich no more than 8 hours, earned with a grade ofA,
B+, or B, may be transferred from institutions approved for this
purpose by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student will
take at least half the required credits in the Latin language and
literature courses (LAT or LNW courses at the 5000 level or
above). UF courses taken at the graduate level prior to admission
to the Graduate School (e.g., in the Latin Summer Institutes) may
be applied to the 30 credits upon approval by the Graduate
School. The Department will work closely with individual
students to determine how many previous graduate credits at UF
or other institutions may be applied to this program.
The student may elect minor work in a department other than
classics (e.g., history, philosophy, art history, religion), although
there is no requirement to do so. If a minor is chosen, at least six


credits are required in the minor field. Two six-credit minors may
be taken with departmental permission. A GPA of 3.0 is required
for minor credit as well as for all work counted toward the degree.
All work in a minor must be approved by the supervisory
committee.
Examination.-The supervisory committee will administer a
final oral handwritten comprehensive examination at the comple-
tion of the course work. This examination will consist of (1) an
oral part: a one hour examination on the general field of Latin
literature, and (2) a written part, consisting of one hour each on
(a) Latin sight translation and grammar, (b) Roman history and
civilization and, only if applicable, (c) the minor, or minors. As
preparation for this examination, the student should read the
required reading list of secondary works in English.
Language Requirement.-The Department does not require,
but strongly recommends, the acquisition of at least a reading
knowledge of one (or more) of the following: German, French,
Italian, or Spanish. Such study will facilitate reading important
secondary works not translated into English, enhance travel to the
classical lands, and perhaps lead to teaching opportunities in the
chosen language at the secondary school level.


MASTER OF LAWS IN COMPARATIVE
LAW

SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION

Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the devel-
opment of the competencies needed for a specific type of employ-
ment. Programs are available in the various areas of concentration
within the School ofTeaching and Learning and the Departments
of Counselor Education; Educational Leadership, Policy, and
Foundations; Educational Psychology; 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 com-
pleted 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 of36 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 commit-
tee selected by the school director or department chair. 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 school/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 30 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 institution of the State
University System or from any institution offering a doctoral
degree; however, credit transferred from another institution re-
duces proportionately the credit transferred from University of
Florida off-campus courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's degree only
must, during the 72-credit program, satisfy these requirements in
addition to the requirements of the Master of Education degree
or its equivalent.

suitable program of no fewer than 15 credits of cognate work in
at least two departments. If two fields are included, there shall be
no fewer than 5 credits in each field. If three or more fields are
included, the 5 credit requirement for each field does not apply.
This program must have the approval of the student's supervisory
committee. The College of Education Graduate Faculty will
expect the candidate to be prepared to answer questions, at the
time of the oral examination, in any of the areas chosen.
Admission to Candidacy.-Admission to candidacy for the
degree of Doctor of Education requires successful completion of


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

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 pro-
gram 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.


PART-TIME EMPLOYMENT
The University of Florida Office of Student Financial 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 Commu-
nity 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
StudentAid (FAFSA) from S-107 Criser Hall. OPS Jobs are not
based on financial need. To apply, students should go to the
Student Employment Office. Off-campus jobs lists are posted on
the job bulletin boards, and students simply need to contact the
employers.
SFA maintains job bulletin boards for all three programs on the
Web at http://www.ufsa.ufl.edu/SFA/SFA.html and at the fol-
lowing locations: on the south wall of the Criser courtyard, in

Student Financial Affairs in S-107 Criser Hall.




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 gradu-
ate 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 presenta-
tion 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://web.uflib.ufl.edu) provides a
wealth of information about the Libraries as well as links to a vast
array of resources. The Libraries are integrating electronic collec-
tions and services with traditional offerings. From the home page
it is possible to connect to the full text of articles in hundreds of
journals as well as increasing numbers of books. Indexes, ab-
stracts, and other reference resources-including more than 60
FirstSearch databases, the Lexis-Nexus Universe, and the Web of
Science-are available.
Subject guides websites provide guides to subject literature and
links to key resources and pertinent websites. 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 policies. Also available are electronic
forms which allow students to make suggestions, renew materials,
initiate interlibrary loan requests, and recall materials charged to
other borrowers.






52 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 the Center for
Research Libraries and provides access to the catalogs of libraries
in other states and foreign nations.
The home page, WebLUIS, and access to the resources con-
tained 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
relating to 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 docu-
ments (except the science-related holdings 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.
Architecture/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 mate-
rials 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 3,400,000 cataloged vol-
umes, 6,300,000 microforms, 1,200,000 documents, 700,000
maps and geographic images, and 16,000 computer datasets. The
Libraries have built a number of nationally significant research
collections primarily in support of graduate research programs.
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 Collections); 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 politicians (Smathers Library,
Special Collections).
The Libraries also have particularly strong holdings in archi-
tectural preservation and 18th-century American architecture
(AFA), late 19th- and early-20th-century German state docu-
ments from 1850-1940 (Library West), Latin American art and
architecture (AFA and Smathers Library), national bibliogra-
phies (Library West, Reference), U.S. Census information, espe-
cially in electronic format (Library West, Documents), the rural
sociology of Florida and tropical and subtropical agriculture
collections (Marston Science Library), English and American
literature (Library West), and U.S. documents (Library West,
Documents).
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 disabili-
ties in their use of the libraries; information 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. Sched-
ules 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 workwith
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 information 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.
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

MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
The Florida Museum of Natural History was created by an act
of the Legislature in 1917 as a department of the University of
Florida. Through its affiliation with the University, it carries dual
responsibility as the Florida museum and the University museum.
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 Harn Museum ofArt and the Center for the
Performing Arts. Completed in 1997, Powell Hall is devoted
exclusively to permanent and traveling 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 research and
collections division of the Museum is located in Dickinson Hall
at the corner of Museum Road and Newell Drive.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthropology
and natural science. Under the director are three administrative
units: Office of the Director, responsible for administrative
oversight as well as fund-raising and development; 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 Pro-
grams in Powell Hall, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of
natural history through exhibits and educational programs. The
scientific and educational faculty (curators) hold appointments in
appropriate University ofFlorida academic departments. Through
these appointments, they participate in both undergraduate and
graduate teaching programs.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is a division of
the Department of Natural History of the Florida Museum of
Natural History. The combined Sarasota and Gainesville hold-
ings in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum ofEntomology as the
largest in the western hemisphere and the premier Lepidoptera
research center in the world. The Allyn Museum publishes the
Bulletin oftheAllyn Museum ofEntomology 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 Preserve are
adjacent pieces of land totalling some 9,500 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
research projects consistent with the aims of the preserve are
actively encouraged.

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 coopera-
tive 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 Academic Advising Center.
Graduate students wishing to explore career interests, gain
experience through cooperative education assignments or intern-
ship, 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 information, and its "immediate job openings" sec-
tion 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 appointments.
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
website 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,






STUDENT SERVICES / 59


services and direct Web links, including details about the Career
Resource Center, its mission, location and hours of operation,
descriptions 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 Gatortrak
System enables participation in on-campus interviews and resume
referral via the Gator Locator resume database.
A significant on-campus job interview program with represen-
tatives from business, industry, government, and education is
conducted by the Center. These major employers come to campus
seeking graduating students in most career fields. Graduate
students are encouraged to register early and to participate in the
on-campus interview program. The Center also sponsors a num-
ber of Career Days and Expos during the academic year, which
bring employers to campus to talk to students about careers and
jobs. These sessions are open to all majors and are an ideal way for
graduate students to make contact with potential employers.
CRC 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 informa-
tion and ask questions about various graduate and professional
education programs offered by these institutions.
The Center also provides reproduction and distribution ser-
vices of professional placement files (qualifications records, vitae,
resumes, and personal references). A modest charge is assessed to
cover labor and materials for copy services and mailing of these
credential packages to employers.


COUNSELING CENTER

The University Counseling Center offers a variety of counsel-
ing 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 academic
concerns. Appointments to see a counselor may be made in person
at 301 Peabody Hall. There is an initial interview in which the
student and the counselor make decisions about the type of help
needed. Students requiring immediate help are seen on a non-
appointment emergency basis. Counseling interviews are confi-
dential. Call (352) 392-1575 for more information.
Consulting.-Center psychologists are available for consult-
ing with students, staff, professionals, and faculty. These consul-
tations often focus on working with individual students, special
programs, organizational problems, ways of improving student
environments, and other issues that may have important psycho-
logical 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 common problems and learn
specific skills. A list of available groups and workshops is pub-
lished 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 experiences for students in
counseling psychology, clinical psychology, counselor education,
and rehabilitation counseling. Center faculty also teach under-
graduate and graduate courses in some of these departments.
Confidentiality.-The Center adheres to very strict confiden-
tiality standards. Any information provided is strictly confiden-
tial 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.counsel.ufl.edu.


ENGLISH SKILLS FOR INTERNATIONAL
STUDENTS

The University of Florida makes available three English lan-
guage 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 program
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 Graduate School. Infor-
mation about ELI is available in 315 Norman Hall and at the ELI
website http://www.eli.ufl.edu.
The Scholarly Writing (SW) program is designed to help
foreign graduate students improve their writing ability. Appli-
cants 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 about the SW
program is available at the coordinator's office, 209 Yon Hall,
telephone (352) 392-0639 or 392-9858.
The Academic Spoken English (ASE) program is designed to
help those who expect to be Graduate Teaching Assistants at the
University of Florida but who cannot demonstrate 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






60 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 construc-
tively by the ASE staff. The third course, ENS 5503, is a tutorial.

- 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 proper-
ties.
The Office of the Ombudsman deals with student concerns ofan
academic nature. Such problems may be related to grades, differ-
ences ofopinion with instructors, or anyacademic matter that needs
resolution. Students are advised to first contact the instructor, the
department chair, and/or the college dean before seeking assistance
from the Ombudsman, although instances do existwhere contactwith
the University Ombudsman first is beneficial.
In many instances, nonacademic issues can be easily and readily
resolved for students merely by providing an opportunity 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.
The Ombudsman for graduate students is the Associate Dean of
the Graduate School, 302 Walker Hall, telephone (352)392-6622.

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 educational/work environment.
It is also the policy of the University to provide education that
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 is crucial to maintaining well being
and delaying complications of the 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.

The Fisher School ofAccounting 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, ac-
counting 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 Examina-
tion (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 professional
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 de-
gree 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

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 appointment. Students are expected to enroll in ACG

accounting-related topic.

The Department ofAgricultural Education and Communica-
tion offers major work for the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy,
Master of Science, and Master ofAgriculture. The requirements
for each degree are described in the General Information section.
The Ph.D. program is designed to prepare graduates for
domestic and international teaching, research, extension, admin-
istrative, and leadership positions in both the public and private
sectors. Areas of specialization include teaching and learning,
communication, leadership and volunteer development, and
adult and extension education. Courses are taught from an
agricultural and natural resources context and are broadly appli-
cable in education, business, government, and agency settings.
For both the Master of Science and Master of Agriculture
degrees, three curriculum options for graduate study are offered.
The agricultural extension and education option is for those
persons currently employed or preparing to be employed in the
cooperative extension service, including family and consumer
sciences, agriculture, 4-H, and other related areas. This option is
also for persons who are teaching agricultural education in the
public schools and those who wish to enter the profession and
require basic certification. The farming systems research-exten-
sion for sustainable agriculture option provides technical and
social science skills and knowledge for field-level technicians.
Emphasis is on sustainable agriculture in developing tropical
countries. The communication option provides skill and theo-
retical knowledge for students interested in careers in agricultural
communication.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored in
agricultural education and communication as an undergraduate.
However, students with an insufficient background in either
agricultural education or technical agriculture will need to include
some basic courses in these areas in their program.

These members of the faculty ofFlorida State University (*) and Florida Atlantic
University (f) are also members ofthe Graduate Faculty of the University of Florida
and participate in the doctoral degree program in the University of Florida
Department ofAnthropology.

The Department of Anthropology offers graduate work lead-
ing 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, an-
thropological linguistics, and physical/biological anthropology.
There is a general option and an interdisciplinary one. The
general option allows students to concentrate at the M.A. level on
the integration of the four subfields of anthropology and to
specialize at the Ph.D. level. The interdisciplinary alternative
allows students to 1) concentrate on one or two subfields of
anthropology along with one or more areas outside of anthropol-
ogy 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 mini-
mum score of 1100 on the Graduate Record Examination 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 ofa 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 admis-
sion into the graduate program is January 5 (for fall semester
admission only). The Department strongly encourages early
applications.

Master of Architecture.-The School of Architecture 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 under-
graduate and graduate programs, is intended to be a complete unit
of professional education leading to practice in architecture or
related fields. Students entering the program at the University 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 accredited architec-
tural program and have completed 6 to 8 architecture studios, two
years in residence (52 credits) are normally required for comple-
tion of the Master ofArchitecture 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 com-
pleted.
Baccalaureate in RelatedDegree Base.-For those students 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 prereq-
uisites for the required thesis or project. (Undergraduate courses-
3000 and 4000 level in the major do not count toward the
minimum requirements for the graduate degree.) Course se-
quences in history and theory, materials and methods, technol-
ogy, 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, 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 deter-
mined by portfolio and transcript review. (Summer introductory
courses-such as design exploration offered by the Architecture
School-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.
(Undergraduate 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 com-
pleted.
Accredited Five-Year Professional Base.-For those students
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 specialized curriculum which compli-
ments the needs of the applicant is developed. The minimum
registration is 30 credits; however, it may increase if transcript
