GRADUATE SCHOOL


MISSION

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 cre-
atively issues of significance to the local and global community
for improving the quality of life. Essential to this mission is an en-
vironment that fosters
effective transmission of knowledge for future generations.
inquiry and critical analysis.
acquisition of skills contributing to success and leadership
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 gradu-
ates, 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 en-
vironments, and for high standards of excellence 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.


ORGANIZATION

The Graduate School consists of the Dean, who is also Vice Presi-
dent for Research; Associate Dean; Assistant Dean; the Gradu-
ate Council; and the Graduate Faculty. General policies and standards
of the Graduate School are established by the Graduate Faculty.
Any policy change must be approved by the graduate deans and
the Graduate Council. The Graduate School is responsible for the
enforcement of minimum general standards of graduate work in
the University and for the coordination of the graduate programs
of the various colleges and divisions of the University. The respon-
sibility 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 for execution of policy related to graduate
study and associated research. The Council, which is chaired by


the graduate dean, considers petitions and policy changes. Members
of the Graduate Faculty are appointed by the academic unit (de-
partment 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 ap-
pointed to the Graduate Faculty. The level of duties for each Graduate
Faculty member is determined by the academic unit.


HISTORY

Graduate study at the University of Florida existed while the
University was still on its Lake City campus. However, the first
graduate degrees, two Master of Arts with a major in English, were
awarded on the Gainesville campus in 1906. The first Master of
Science was awarded in 1908, with a major in entomology. The
first programs leading to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930, and
the first degrees were awarded in 1934, one with a major in chemistry
and the other with a major in pharmacy. The first Ed.D. was awarded
in 1948. Graduate study has had a phenomenal growth at the Uni-
versity of Florida. In 1930, 33 degrees were awarded in 12 fields.
In 1940, 66 degrees were awarded in 16 fields. In 2001-02, the
total number of graduate degrees awarded was 3,709 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 2001-02, the University of Florida awarded 383 Ph.D.
degrees.


DEFINITIONS

Academic Degree-Degree is the title to be conferred by the
University upon completion of the academic program, for example,
Doctor of Philosophy. Some degrees include the name of the field
of study (Master of Architecture, Master of Education). Others
(Master ofArts, Master of Science) do not. Degree names are listed
in boldface.
Graduate Program-The program is the primary field of study
of a graduate student. This is the student's major. Programs of-
fered at the University of Florida are approved by the Graduate
Council, University Senate, and the Board ofTrustees. The program
name along with the degree appears on the student's transcript.
Programs are enumerated under the degree name in the list of
graduate degrees and programs.
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 pro-
grams.
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. If a minor is cho-
sen, the supervisory committee must include a representative from
the minor field. The minimum amount of credit required for a





6 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 administrative
unit may offer a graduate certificate along with a graduate degree.
The certificate indicates that the student took a required num-
ber 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 undergraduate
student to take graduate-level courses prior to completion of the
bachelor's degree and to count 12 graduate credits 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 of the GRE. Departments
may establish higher admission standards. Individual departments
will determine whether or not a combined degree program is
appropriate. Combined degree programs established
prior to January 1, 2003, may have other requirements.
Cooperative Degree Program-A course of study leading to
a graduate degree with more than one institution authorized to
provide course work.
CatalogYear-The set of academic requirements a student must
fulfill is based on the rules in force in the academic year of ini-
tial 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 graduate
degree and a professional degree is called a joint degree program.
Normally 12 credits of professional courses are counted toward
the graduate degree and 12 credits of graduate courses are counted
toward the professional degree. Individual departments will de-
termine whether or not a joint degree program is appropriate. Joint
programs established prior to January 1, 2003, may have other
requirements.
Concurrent Degree Program-Simultaneous study on an in-
dividualized basis leading to two master's degrees in two gradu-
ate 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 requires prior approval of each department and the
Graduate School. If the student is approved to pursue two master's
degrees, no more than 9 credits of course work from one degree
program may be applied toward meeting the requirements for the
second master's degree.
Co-Major-A course of study allowing two major programs
for one Ph.D. degree. The program must be approved by the Gradu-
ate Council.

NONTRADITIONAL
PROGRAMS



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


JOINT DEGREE PROGRAMS

A course of study leading to a graduate degree and a professional degree
is called a joint degree program. Normally 12 credits of professional
courses are counted toward the graduate degree and 12 credits of graduate
courses are counted toward the professional degree. Individual departments
will determine whether or not a joint degree program is appropriate.
Joint programs established prior to January 1, 2003, may have other
requirements.
Any graduate student wishing to participate in a joint program must
be admitted to both programs. Enrollment in one program may pre-
cede enrollment in the other according to timelines set by the program.
A minimum of three credits registration in fall or spring or two cred-
its in summer is required in the term in which a student intends to gradu-
ate. This course work must be credit that will apply toward the graduate
degree requirements. See departmental coordinator for details.


COMBINED BACHELOR'S/MASTER'S
DEGREE PROGRAMS
The University of Florida offers a number of bachelor's/master's pro-
grams for superior students in which 12 credits of graduate-level courses
are counted for both degrees. Courses that dual count must satisfy the
requirements listed under the Transfer of Credit section of this cata-
log. Interested students should consult with their graduate coordina-
tors about the availability of programs in that area and admissions
requirements.


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 ad-
mission requirements and a guarantee of acceptance of earned resident
credits by the sponsoring institutions. The program will enable a graduate
student to take advantage 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 supervi-
sory committee 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, 106 Grinter
Hall.
Cooperative Degree Programs-In certain degree programs, fac-
ulty from other universities in the State University System hold Graduate
Faculty status at the University of Florida. In those approved areas, the
intellectual resources of these Graduate Faculty members are available
to students at the University of Florida.


INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE
CERTIFICATES AND CONCENTRATIONS
A number of graduate programs offer interdisciplinary enhancements
in the form of concentrations, field research, or graduate certificates.





NONTRADITIONAL PROGRAMS / 11


Those approved by the Graduate Council are summarized on the
following pages.


AFRICAN STUDIES

The Center for African Studies, a National Resource Center on
Africa, funded, in part, under Title VI of the Higher Education
Act, directs and coordinates interdisciplinary instruction, research,
and outreach related to Africa. In cooperation with participating
departments throughout the University, the Center offers a Certificate
in African Studies at both the master's and doctoral levels. The
curriculum provides a broad foundation for students preparing
for teaching or other professional careers in which a knowledge
of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships-Students admitted
to the Graduate School in pursuit of degrees offered by partici-
pating 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 instructional
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 for African Studies,
in cooperation with participating departments, offers a Certifi-
cate 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 administered
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 de-
partment that closely represents their background and interest.
Course work may be chosen from several related disciplines. Thesis
research can be undertaken in Florida or overseas. Degrees will
be awarded through the departments in which the candidates are
enrolled.


In conjunction with the graduate degree, a student can earn a
concentration or minor in agroforestry by fulfilling certain require-
ments. 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 agro-
forestry topic, can earn a minor. Candidates who fulfill the ap-
plicable 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 de-
partments other than the candidate's major department to pro-
vide 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 des-
ignated 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 Pro-
gram Leader at 330 Newins-Ziegler Hall, (352) 846-0880, fax (352)
846-1322, and e-mail pknair@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 mo-
lecular 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 environment
in which cross-fertilization between disciplines can flourish. Graduate
Faculty from the Departments of Animal Sciences, Biochemistry
and Molecular Biology, Chemistry, 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, im-
munology, and endocrinology. Facilities include those for recom-
binant DNA research, experimental surgery, in vitro culture of cells,
tissue and organ explants, manipulation of embryos, vaccine pro-
duction, and recombinant protein engineering.
Ph.D. degrees are awarded through participating departments
with the interdisciplinary concentration in animal molecular and

CHEMICAL PHYSICS

The Center for Chemical Physics, with the participation of
the faculty of the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, and Chemical
Engineering, is concerned with graduate education and research
in the theoretical, experimental, and computational aspects of prob-
lems in the borderline between chemistry and physics. Graduate
students join one of the above departments and follow a special
curriculum. The student receives, in addition to the Ph.D. degree,
a Certificate in Chemical Physics. For information, contact the
Director, New Physics Building.


ECOLOGICAL ENGINEERING

The Graduate Certificate in Ecological Engineering is for gradu-
ate engineering students wishing to develop expertise in ecological
solutions to engineering problems. Students interested in the cer-
tificate must apply for admission through the Department of En-
vironmental Engineering Sciences. The certificate program is open
to individuals in any graduate program who hold an undergraduate
engineering degree, or who complete additional undergraduate en-
gineering articulation courses. This additional course work is required
to bring the student's background to the minimum level required
for engineers by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Tech-
nology.
The certificate program consists of 15 course credits, and a re-
search project with content materially related to some aspect of
ecological engineering. If appropriate, the 15 credits of gradu-
ate 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 requirement. For more information,
contact the graduate coordinator in the Department of Environ-
mental Engineering Sciences, P.O. Box 116450, University of
Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611 or call (352)392-8450.


GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SCIENCES

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have revolutionized
the way that land features are located, measured, inventoried, man-
aged, 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.




NONTRADITIONAL PROGRAMS / 13


GIS applications are diverse. They include determining the suitability
of land for different uses, planning future land uses for different
objectives, setting cadastral boundaries for the purpose of prop-
erty 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, sociologists, public
health professionals and medical researchers, county land-man-
agement 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 tech-
nology 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 Interdisciplinary Concentration
for Geographic Information Sciences (ICGIS).
The ICGIS is designed to integrate existing GIS resources on
campus, for graduate students, as a response to changing regulatory
environments in institutions and governments at all levels. This
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. Structurally, the ICGIS has estab-
lished a five-category curriculum that would add several courses
to the standard M.S., MA., M.E., or Ph.D. requirements and would
result in official recognition of having completed the GIS con-
centration by statements on transcripts and a certificate

GERONTOLOGICAL STUDIES

The Center offers the minor in gerontology and the Graduate
Certificate in Gerontology. These programs are completed in con-
junction with the student's graduate degree, for master's, special-
ist, and doctoral students. Graduate students may complete one or
all of these programs. All programs require GEY 6646, an interdis-
ciplinary core course, that provides a broad introduction to the critical
issues and growing academic knowledge about aging, covering bio-
medical and health, psychosocial, and applied issues. Advanced courses
at the graduate and professional level provide an opportunity for
all students to expand their interdisciplinary knowledge and research
background in aging. Students interested in aging major in graduate
programs all over campus but their degrees are predominantly in
the fields of nursing, psychology, occupational or physical therapy,
rehabilitation, sociology, exercise and sport sciences, communication
sciences and disorders or audiology, and recreational studies.
For the minor in gerontology, students complete 6 credits (master's
level) or 12 credits (doctoral level) of approved aging courses outside
of their major departments. This program is most appropriate for
students who desire course work in aging that will complement their
future career interests. The Graduate Certificate in Gerontology requires
completion of a major research project (typically, the student's thesis
or dissertation), plus 12 credits of approved aging courses. This cer-
tificate is most appropriate for students planning to do substantive
research in the field of aging as part of their graduate work.


Details for all programs can be found at http://www.geron.ufl.edu.

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 tropi-
cal environments and their intelligent use by people. The Uni-
versity 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 ba-
sis 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 Uni-
versity of Florida does not require tuition for OTS courses. Reg-
istration 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 in-
formation may be obtained from University of Florida repre-
sentatives to the OTS board of directors, located in 321 Carr
Hall and 3028 McCarty Hall.


VISION SCIENCES

An interdisciplinary specialization in vision sciences is available
through the College of Medicine. The Department of Ophthal-
mology serves as the administrative and logistical center. However,
most of the faculty are from the IDP advanced concentrations.
Current interests include retinal gene therapy, gene expression
in the mammalian retina and lens, especially during fetal de-
velopment, biochemistry of vision in vertebrates and inverte-
brates, biochemistry and neurobiology of wound healing and
neural tissue degeneration, and molecular and cell biology of
animal model retinal regeneration. Further information may be
obtained from the program director, Dr. William W. Hauswirth,

WETLANDS

The Center for Wetlands, a component of the Department of
Environmental Engineering Sciences, prepares scientists and en-
gineers to address today's state, national, and international envi-
ronmental issues. Student and faculty researchers at the Center study
wetland ecosystems and water resource issues in an effort to integrate
humanity and nature in our developing landscape.
The Center works to provide solutions to Florida's wetlands and water
resource issues and problems through education and research. Fed-
eral and state sources, as well as private industry, fund research and
the dissemination of research results. The Center provides valuable research
experience to undergraduate and graduate students. Students receive
professional training through participation in Center research projects
and leave the Center prepared for environmental, wetlands and/or water
resource careers with federal, state, and local agencies, academic and
research institutions, consulting firms, and industries.
Graduate Certificate in Wetlands-Any graduate student at
the University of Florida may earn a Certificate in Wetlands. The
certificate helps prepare students for careers related to wetland science
and management. The certificate requires 18 credits, including
wetlands research experience. Course work includes an introductory
wetland course and courses selected from several related catego-
ries including hydrology, biology, environmental policy and law,
water chemistry, and soils. With planning early in a student's program,
courses for the certificate can be blended with the graduate pro-
gram of study. For more information, please contact the Center
for Wetlands, P.O. Box 116350 or call (352)392-2424.


WOMEN'S AND GENDER STUDIES

Two certificates, two master's degrees, and a doctoral concen-
tration are offered in women's and gender studies.
The two graduate certificates in women's studies for master's and
doctoral students are offered in conjunction with degree programs
in other academic units. Postbaccalaureate students who have spe-
cifically applied for admission to the Women's Studies Graduate
Certificate program may also enroll. The Graduate Certificate in
Women's Studies and the Graduate Certificate in Gender and De-
velopment require specific sets of course work designed to give stu-
dents a thorough grounding in the discipline. The Graduate Cer-
tificate in Women's Studies is a general introduction to the field,
and the Graduate Certificate in Gender and Development is de-
signed for students who wish to focus on issues related to gender,
economic development, and globalization.
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 studies and other academic
fields. The concentration facilitates the analysis and assessment of
theories about the role of gender in cultural systems and its inter-
sections with other categories of differences, such as race, ethnicity,
religion, class, sexuality, physical and mental ability, age, economic
and civil status. Emphasis is on participating in women's and gender




18 / GENERAL INFORMATION


studies research and on providing an intellectual environment in
which cross-fertilization between disciplines can flourish. Women's
and gender studies critically explore the role and status of women
and men, past and present.
Graduate Faculty from several departments and colleges, campus-
wide, participate. Among the academic units represented are Ag-
ricultural and Life Sciences, Anthropology, Counselor Education,
English, German and Slavic Studies, History, Journalism and Com-
munications, Latin American Studies, Linguistics, Medicine, Nurs-
ing, Philosophy, Psychology, Religion, Romance 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 grant-
ing department, the application is sent by the department to the
Director ofWomen's and Gender Studies who chairs an admissions
committee.
For further information on the master's degrees, see Specialized
Masters Degrees and the Fields oflnstruction sections of this catalog
or contact the Director, Center for Women's Studies and Gender
Research, 3324 Turlington Hall.


ADMISSION TO THE
GRADUATE SCHOOL



HOWTO APPLY

Application for Admission-Applicants should contact the
department of interest for information about admissions proce-
dures. Contact the department directly or their website at http:/
/gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/contacts.shtml. Applications
that meet minimum standards are referred to the graduate selection
committees of the various colleges and departments for approval
or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department, the
prospective student must satisfy the requirements of the department
as well as those of the Graduate School. Admission to some programs
is limited by the resources available.
Minimum Requirements-The Graduate School, University
of Florida, requires both a minimum grade average of B for all upper-
division undergraduate work and a minimum verbal-quantitative
total score of 1000 on the General Test of the Graduate Record
Examination (or satisfactory scores on the Graduate Management
Admission Test for students applying to the Warrington College
of Business Administration) for students with an earned bachelor's
degree only or its international equivalent based on a four-year
curriculum. For some departments, and in more advanced levels
of graduate study, undergraduate averages or Graduate Record Ex-
amination scores above those stated for the Graduate School may
be required. Some colleges and departments require a reading knowl-
edge of at least one foreign language. Exceptions to the above re-
quirements are made only when these and other criteria, including
letters of recommendation, are reviewed by the department, rec-
ommended by the department, and approved by the Dean of the
Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is dependent upon pre-
sentation of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or
university. Two copies of the official transcripts fron all previously
attended colleges or universities should accompany all appli-
cations-one for the department and one for the Registrar. These
transcripts must be received directly from the registrar of the
institution in which the work was done. Official supplementary
transcripts are required as soon as they are available for any work
completed after application for admission has been made.
Department admission requirements are often more rigorous
than the minimum requirements set by the Graduate School. Because
of resource limitations, most departments do not accept all qualified
applicants.
The University of Florida is committed to creating a community
that reflects the rich racial, cultural and ethnic diversity of the State
of Florida and the United States of America. No challenge that
exists in higher education has greater importance than the chal-
lenge of enrolling students and hiring faculty and staff who are
members of diverse racial, cultural, or ethnic minority groups. This
pluralism enriches the University community, offers opportunity
for robust academic dialogue and contributes to better teaching
and research. The University and its components will benefit from
the richness of a multicultural student body, faculty, and staff who







can learn from one another. Such diversity will empower and inspire
respect and understanding among us. The University does not tolerate
the actions of anyone that violate the rights of another. The University
will embody, through policy and practice, a diverse community.
Our collective efforts will lead to a University that is truly diverse
and reflects the U.S. population.
The University encourages applications from qualified appli-
cants of both sexes from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic
groups. The University does not discriminate on the basis of marital
status, disability, or age in admission or access to its programs and
activities. The Tide IX Coordinator is Dr. Jacquelyn D. Hart, 145
Tigert Hall, (352)392-6004.


ADMISSIONS EXAMINATIONS

Graduate Record Examination-In addition to the General
Test of the Graduate Record Examination which is required of all
first time graduate students, some departments encourage the ap-
plicant to submit scores on one or more advanced subject tests of
the Graduate Record Examination. The scores on all tests taken
will be considered in regard to admission. Applicants with a previous
graduate or professional degree or equivalent from a regionally ac-
credited U.S. institution may be exempt from the Graduate Record
Examination and undergraduate G.P.A. requirements. Inquiries
about specific requirements should be addressed to the department
in question.
Graduate Study in Business Administration-Students applying
for admission to the Graduate School for study in the Warrington
College of Business Administration may substitute satisfactory scores
on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) for the
Graduate Record Examination. Students applying for admission
to the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program must
submit satisfactory scores on the GMAT. University of Florida mini-
mum requirements are 465. Applicants should contact the Edu-
cational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for additional in-
formation.
Graduate Study in Law-Students applying to the graduate
program leading to the degree Master of Laws in Taxation must
hold the Juris Doctor or equivalent degree.

ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL / 19


COMPUTER REQUIREMENT

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


CONDITIONAL ADMISSION

The Board of Education has ruled that, in admitting students
for a given academic year, up to 10% may be admitted as exceptions.
Students admitted as exceptions under the 10% waiver rule must
present both an upper-division grade point average and Gradu-
ate Record Examination General Test score with their applications
and meet other criteria required by the University, including excellent
letters of recommendation from colleagues, satisfactory performance
in a specified number of graduate courses taken as postbaccalaureate
students, and/or practical experience in the discipline for a specified
period of time.
In addition, students who are not eligible for direct admission
may be granted conditional admission to the Graduate School to
defer final admission decisions for one term until requisite exami-
nation scores or final grade records are available; to ascertain their
abilities to pursue graduate work at the University of Florida if
previous grade records or Graduate Record Examination scores
are on the borderline of acceptability; or when specific prerequisite
courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be notified by
the department of the conditions under which they are admitted.
When these conditions have been satisfied, the department must
notify the student in writing, sending a copy to the Graduate School.
Eligible course work taken while a student is in conditional sta-
tus is applicable toward a graduate degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission will be barred
from further registration.


RESIDENCY


FLORIDA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE

Classification of Students Florida or Non-Florida (6A-10.044,
Florida Administrative Code) Residency for Tuition Purposes.




20 / GENERAL INFORMATION


The State Board of Community Colleges and the Board of Edu-
cation shall maintain consistent policies and practices for the clas-
sification 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 governance, but the de-
terminations 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 univer-
sity shall be recognized by other public postsecondary insti-
tutions to which the student may later seek admission, un-
less 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, in-
stitutions to which the student may transfer are not required
to reevaluate the classification unless inconsistent informa-
tion suggests 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 Education intend to make in the policies and practices for
the classification of students 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., conditional
permanent residents and temporary residents), who have applied
to and have been approved by the U.S. Immigration and Natu-
ralization 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 fol-
lowing visas shall be considered eligible to establish Florida
residency for tuition purposes. Persons in visa categories not
listed herein shall be considered ineligible to establish Florida
residency for tuition purposes.
(a) Visa category A-Government official.

Student Residency, Section 6C-7.005 Florida Administrative
Code.
(1) For the purpose of assessing tuition, residency and nonresidency
status shall be determined as provided in Section 240.1201,
Florida Statutes, and the Florida State University System Resi-
dency Policy and Procedure Manual (Revised Effective 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 resi-
dent tuition rate, until the individual has provided satisfactory
evidence as to his or her legal residence and domicile to ap-
propriate 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 evidence 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 aforementioned 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 Im-
migration 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 Immigration and Natu-
ralization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of an approved ad-
justment of status application, or Cuban Nationals or Viet-
namese 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 pur-
poses" registration rates is on the applicant for such classi-
fication.
(3) In applying this policy:
(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to the institu-
tion, or a person allowed to register at the institution on
a space available basis.
(b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true, fixed, and per-
manent home, and to which whenever the person is absent
the person has the intention of returning.




ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL / 21


(4) In all applications for admission or registration at the insti-
tution on a space available basis a "resident for tuition pur-
poses" applicant, or, if a dependent child, the parent of the
applicant, shall make and file with such application a writ-
ten statement, under oath, that the applicant is a bona fide
resident and domiciliary of the State of Florida. All claims to
"resident for tuition purposes" classification must be supported
by evidence as stated in Rule 6C-7.005(1),(2) if requested by
the registering authority.
(5) A "nonresident" or, if a dependent child, the individual's parent,
after maintaining a legal residence and being a bonafide do-
miciliary of Florida for twelve (12) months, immediately prior
to enrollment and qualification as a resident, rather than for
the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary residence or
abode incident to enrollment in an institution of higher edu-
cation, may apply for and be granted classification as a "resident
for tuition purposes"; provided, however, that those students
who are nonresident aliens or who are in the United States
on a non-immigration visa will not be entitled to reclassifi-
cation. 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 "non-
resident 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 im-
mediately prior to qualification required to establish residence
for tuition purposes. In the absence of such evidence, the ap-
plicant shall not be reclassified as a "resident for tuition pur-
poses." It is recommended that the application for reclassi-
fication be accompanied by a certified copy of a declaration
of intent to establish legal domicile in the state, which intent
must have been filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court, as
provided by Section 222.17, Florida Statutes. If the request
for reclassification and the necessary documentation is not
received by the registrar prior to the last day of registration
for the term in which the student intends to be reclassified,
the student will not be reclassified for that term.
(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resident for tuition
purposes" status to applicant therefore may be initiated after
appropriate administrative remedies are exhausted by the filing
of a petition for review pursuant to Section 120.68 ES.
(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for tuition purposes,
which status is based on a sworn statement which is false shall,
upon determination of such falsity, be subject to such disciplinary
sanctions as may be imposed by the president of the university.

HOW TO APPLY FOR RESIDENCY

All U.S. citizens, permanent residents and others included in
Section 4 of the Board of Education Rule 6a-10.044 above are eligible
to apply for Florida residency.
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 resi-
dency review staff members in the Office of the University Registrar
reviews applications for Florida resident status, together with sup-
portive documentation, and to render a decision based on the
documentation and the requirements of Florida law.
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.
It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to provide all
appropriate documentation to merit a reclassification for tuition
purposes.
A student wishing to establish residency should pick up the Re-
quest for Change in Residency Status form from the Office of the
University Registrar, 222 Criser Hall, to review the information
and items that may be requested when the student files for Florida
residency for tuition purposes.


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 For-
eign Language) with the following exceptions:
1. International students whose native language is English
or who have spent at least one academic year at a college
or university prior to enrolling at the University of Florida
in a country where English is the official language,
excluding intensive 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
satisfactory scores from the Graduate Management
Admission Test before their applications for admission
will be considered.
International students whose scores on the TOEFL or 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. Stu-
dents 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 EAP 5836, a course designed to help their inter-
personal and public speaking communication skills. Students who
fail to score 45 points may not be appointed to teach. To raise their
scores on the TSE, they are advised to take EAP 5835, a course





22 / GENERAL INFORMATION


to improve general oral language skills. They must subsequently
submit a TSE or SPEAK score of 45 or higher to be appointed
to teach, and they come under the 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 Academic
Spoken English Office, 3340 Turlington 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 re-
cruitment 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

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 Department
of Veterans Affairs. There are 10 federal public laws currently
providing education/job training programs for DVA (Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs) eligible students. The four programs
serving most students are Chapter 30 for U.S. Military Veter-
ans, Chapter 31 for Disabled U.S. Military Veterans, Chapter
35 for the Spouse and Children of Deceased or 100% Disabled
Veterans (service connected), and Chapter 1606 for personnel
in the National Guard or U.S. Military Reserves. Students may
contact the Office of the University Registrar or the DVA coun-
seling 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 Uni-
versity 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 regulations.


The Atlanta Regional Processing Office of the U.S. Department
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 es-
tablished their DVA program eligibility at another college or uni-
versity must submit a completed Change of Program or Place
of Training form to the University Registrar, as well as a Uni-
versity of Florida Certification of Enrollment Request. All forms
are available at the University of Florida Registrar Information
Counter in 222 Criser Hall. This office can also provide con-
firmation of student status for DVA health care or other ben-
efits.
Inquiries relating to Social Security benefits should be di-
rected 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 eli-
gible 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 dur-
ing summer term C.
A full-time graduate load for DVA or Social Security benefits
is 9 credits 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 en-
rollment 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-incuded 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 fu-
ture 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 regu-
lations on courses and credit, it is possible to transfer up to 15 se-
mester credits of graduate course work earned with a grade of A,
B+, or B.
For the College of Education, only students who have completed
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 post-
baccalaureate status only for a limited time to fulfill prerequisites
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 infor-
mation is available on the Registrar's website http://www.reg.ufl.edu/

NONDEGREE REGISTRATION

Nondegree enrollment is restricted to participants in special pro-
grams, 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 regulations on courses and credit,
it is possible to transfer up to 15 semester credits of graduate course
work earned with the grade of A, B+, or B.
A student should not remain in this classification for more than
one term before being admitted as a postbaccalaureate or graduate
student.


READMISSION

This information applies only to students who have been ad-
mitted to a graduate program and attended the University. Former
graduate students who do not enroll at the University for two con-
secutive terms, including any summer term, must reapply for ad-
mission 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 or online at www.reg.ufl.edu/regadmi.htm


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


GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS AND
FELLOWSHIPS
Graduate Assistantships are available through individual depart-
ments. Stipend rates paid are determined by the employing de-
partment or unit.


ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL / 23


Interested students should inquire at their department offices
concerning the availability of assistantships and the procedure for
making application. Prospective students should write directly to
their major departments. Early inquiry is essential in order to be assured
of meeting application deadlines. Appointments are made on the
recommendation of the department chair, subject to admission
to the Graduate School and to the approval of the Dean of the
Graduate School. Clear evidence of superior ability and promise
is required. Reappointment to assistantships requires evidence of
continuation of good scholarship.
Unless otherwise specified, applications for these awards should
be made to the appropriate department chair, University of Florida,
on or before February 15 of each year.
Fellows and graduate'assistants must pay appropriate in-state
and out-of-state tuition. Fellows receiving semester stipends of
$3150.00 or greater and trainees are expected to devote full time
to their studies. Graduate assistants who have part-time teaching
or research duties register for reduced study loads according to the

schedule required for their appointment. Students on appointment
will be financially liable for excess credits over the required reg-
istration or dropped courses.



TUITION PAYMENTS

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


RESIDENCY FOR GRADUATE
STUDENTS ON APPOINTMENT
Graduate research and teaching assistants and University Alumni
or Named Presidential Fellows who are United States citizens or
permanent residents are eligible for in-state residency for tuition
purposes after the completion of three consecutive semesters over
12 consecutive months.
It is the policy of the University of Florida that all such stu-
dents must take the appropriate actions to become in-state
residents for tuition purposes at the beginning of their first semester
of enrollment and no later than the end of the drop/add period.
This includes (1) registering as a voter in Florida; (2) obtaining
a Florida driver's license or Florida ID; (3) obtaining a Florida vehicle
registration and insurance if appropriate; and (4) completing a dec-
laration of domicile. Information to accomplish these tasks is available
either from the graduate coordinator, departmental office, or on
line at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/faq.html.
At the beginning of their second year of enrollment, students
must file the appropriate documentation with the Office of the




24 / GENERAL INFORMATION


University Registrar before the end of the drop/add period. For
students who do not follow this procedure, the waiver will only
cover in-state matriculation. This means that the student will have
to provide the additional cost of nonresident (out-of-state) tuition
from his or her own funds.


UNIVERSITY-WIDE FELLOWSHIPS

http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/
ALUMNI FELLOWSHIP
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/alumni.html
These fellowships, funded at nationally competitive levels, are
among the highest graduate student awards available at the University.
These prestigious awards support students in all programs and
departments awarding the Ph.D. or M.EA.
The University offers 150 of these fellowships for students each
year. To ensure that Alumni Fellows receive every opportunity to
succeed, these fellowships provide a full four years of support for
qualifying students. Most fellows will receive a minimum of two
years of fully funded fellowships, and they will receive another two
years of research or teaching assistantship experience. The Uni-
versity expects Alumni Fellows to demonstrate high standards of
academic achievement and participation in university life.
Prospective candidates should apply through their major depart-
ments or colleges. Successful applicants must have outstanding un-
dergraduate preparation, a strong commitment to their field of
study, and demonstrated potential in research and creative activities.

NAMED PRESIDENTIAL FELLOWSHIP

http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/presidential.html.
The Graduate School sponsors fellowships named for former
University of Florida presidents. They represent a four-year com-
mitment to the student, assuming satisfactory progress toward the
degree.
The first and fourth years are funded by the Graduate School.
The second and third years are funded by the student's 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 disciplines, the academic
units set the stipend level. The lower bound of the stipend is $10,000
annually.
The fellowships are limited to U.S. citizens or permanent residents
who are pursuing a terminal degree (Ph.D., Ed.D., or M.FA.).
The program is intended primarily to attract outstanding students
from across the nation. Applications for students from traditionally
underrepresented groups are encouraged.
Potential applicants should contact their major departments for
complete application information.

GRINTER FELLOWSHIP

http://www.aa.ufl.edu/fellows/grinter.html
Grinter Fellowships are named in honor of Dr. Linton E. Grinter,
Dean of the Graduate School from 1952 to 1969.
The intent of this fellowship is to facilitate recruitment of truly
exceptional graduate students. Currently enrolled graduate


students are not eligible, except in the particular case in which they
are entering a Ph.D. (or other terminal degree) program.
Stipends are normally in the $2000 to 4000 range. Continu-
ation of the Grinter beyond the first year is contingent upon sat-
isfactory student progress.
Interested students should contact their major departments for
complete information. Students in the Colleges ofAgricultural and
Life Sciences, Engineering, and Law are not eligible for Grinter
Fellowships.

FULBRIGHT-HAYS

MINORITY SUPPORT PROGRAMS

http://rgp.ufl.edu/ogmp/
In addition to university-wide fellowships such as the Alumni
Fellowship, the following funding opportunities are available through
the Office of Graduate Minority Programs.
The Florida Board of Education Summer Program, held
Summer Term B, is an early admission orientation program for
underrepresented minority graduate students. The program is
designed as a retention program to prepare eligible students newly
admitted into a graduate program for the fall semester, who have
not previously attended the University of Florida for graduate edu-
cation. Participants receive a stipend of $1500, with payment of
4 credits of tuition (excluding fees). Participants are required to

EXTERNAL FELLOWSHIPS FOR
GRADUATE STUDENTS

Information on external fellowships, small grants, and other fund-
ing opportunities is available on the Research and Graduate Programs
(RGP) website: http://rgp.ufl.edu/researchlfunding.html. The Com-
munity ofScience Funding Opportunities Database and the Grants
Database are keyword searchable and highly recommended as in-
formation resources by RGP Program Information staff.


GENERAL REGULATIONS

It is the responsibility of the graduate student to become in-
formed and to observe all regulations and procedures required
by the program s/he is pursuing. The student must be famil-
iar with those sections of the Graduate Catalog that outline general
regulations and requirements, specific degree program requirements,
and the offerings and requirements of the major department. Ig-
norance 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 reg-
istration, 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 regulations 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-seek-
ing 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 requirements of a
later catalog, but they must fulfill all graduation requirements


from that alternative year. The University will make every rea-
sonable effort to honor the curriculum requirements appropriate
to each student's catalog year. However, courses and programs
will sometimes be discontinued and requirements 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 and Pri-
vacy Act of 1974, as amended known as the Buckley Amendment.
Student directory information that can be released to the public
is limited to name, class, college and major; dates of attendance;
degrees) earned; honors and awards received; local, permanent,
and e-mail addresses; telephone number; most recent previous edu-
cational institution attended; participation in officially recognized
activities and sports; and the weight and height of members of athletic
teams.
Currently enrolled students must contact the appropriate
agency(ies) to restrict release of directory information. The Of-
fice of the University Registrar, the Division of Housing, and the
Division of Human Resources routinely release directory infor-
mation 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 from the Division of Housing
(next to Beaty Towers). Students who are University employees
also must request this restriction from the Division of Human
Resources.
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 officials" shall include

An employee, agent, or officer of the University or State
University System of Florida in an administrative, super-
visory, academic or research, or support staff position;




GENERAL REGULATIONS / 27


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 audi-
tor.
"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 individuals
or entities permitted such access under applicable federal and state
law.
Students have the right to review their own educational records for
information and to determine accuracy. A photo I.D. or other equivalent
documentation or personal recognition by the custodian of record will
be required before access is granted. Parents of dependent students,
as defined by the Internal Revenue Service, have these same rights upon
presentation of proof of the student's dependent status.
If a student believes the educational record contains information
that is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of his or her rights, the
student may ask the institution to amend the record. The UF Stu-
dent Guide outlines the procedures for challenging the content of a
student record as well as the policies governing access to and main-
tenance of student records.


ACADEMIC HONESTY

In the fall of 1995 the UF student body enacted a new honor
code and voluntarily committed itself to the highest standards of
honesty and integrity. When students enroll at the University, they
commit themselves to the standard drafted and enacted by the
students.
Preamble-In adopting this honor code, the students of the
University of Florida recognize that academic honesty and integrity
are fundamental values of the university community. Students who
enroll at the University commit to holding themselves and their
peers to the high standard of honor required by the honor code.
Any individual who becomes aware of a violation of the honor code
is bound by honor to take corrective action. The quality of a
University of Florida education is dependent upon community
acceptance and enforcement of the honor code.
The Honor Code-We, the members of the University of Florida
community, pledge to hold ourselves and our peers to the high-
est standards of honesty and integrity.
On all work submitted for credit by students at the University,
the following pledge is either required or implied:
"On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized
aid in doing this assignment."
Information on procedures is located in the Student Guide at
www.dso.ufl.edu/stg/ and is set forth in Florida Administrative Code.


STUDENT CONDUCT CODE

Students enjoy the rights and privileges that accrue to membership
in a university community and are subject to the responsibilities
that accompany that membership. In order to have a system of


effective campus governance, it is incumbent upon all members
of the campus community to notify appropriate officials of any
violations of regulations and to assist in their enforcement. The
University's conduct regulations are available to all students on
the Internet at http://www.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 semesters and two 6-week summer terms.
A credit under the semester system is equal to 1.5 quarter cred-
its.
Graduate Students on Appointment-Required registration
for fellows and trainees with stipends of $3,150 or greater per semester
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 ap-
pointment 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 stu-
dent is registered during each term that s/he is on appointment.
Students on appointment will be financially liable for excess credits
over the required registration or dropped courses.

Full-Time Registration-To be considered full-time for academic
purposes, students must be registered for 12 credits in the fall and
spring or 8 credits in summer. Most fellows and assistants on .01-
.24 FTE must be registered full time. Students not on an appoint-
ment may want to enroll full time to finish their degrees in the
minimum timeframe or may be required to enroll full-time by ex-
ternal funding agencies or their departments.
Full-Time Equivalent-Full-time equivalent status refers to
a required or prescribed registration requirement, which is less than
12 credits but considered appropriate in specific circumstances.
This includes students on a .25-1.00 FTE assistantship, but also
for U.S. students on financial aid or the GI Bill and international
students who are generally enrolled for 9-credits in fall/spring and




28 / GENERAL INFORMATION


6 credits in summer. This registration is considered full time for
administrative purposes. In addition, there are other circumstances
regarding full-time equivalent status that can be found in the
Graduate Council Policy Manual at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/
education/gcpm.html 6.6.0.0.
Lockstep programs such as M.B.A. are defined as cohorts who
move together in the same enrollment sequence with courses taught
in a particular order on a particular schedule. Students have no
flexibility in their program or sequence, and may not drop in and
out of courses independently. Upon department request, the
Graduate School will certify specified students as full-time equivalent
under the circumstances stated in the Graduate Council Policy
Manual.
Part-Time Registration-Students not on an appointment and
without a specific registration requirement by the government,
external funding agency, or academic department may register as
a part-time student. The minimum registration requirement is 3
credits in fall/spring and 2 credits in the summer.
Employee Registration-UF staff employed on a permanent,
full-time basis may be permitted to waive fees up to a maximum
of six credit hours per term on a space-available basis. Enrollment
is limited to courses that do not increase direct costs to the University.
Courses that increase direct costs can include TBA (to be arranged),
computer courses, individualized courses, distance learning, in-
ternships, and dissertation and master's thesis courses. Laboratory
courses are permitted on a space available basis.
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses-Upper-
division undergraduate students may enroll in 5000-level courses
with the permission of the instructor. Normally, a student must
have a grade point average of at least 3.0. To enroll in 6000-
level courses, a student must have senior standing, permission
of the instructor, and an upper-division grade point average
of at least 3.0.
After a student has been accepted in the Graduate School, up
to 15 hours of graduate-level courses earned with a grade of A,
B+, or B taken under this provision may be applied toward a graduate
degree at the University of Florida provided credit for the course
has not been used for an undergraduate degree and provided the
transfer is approved by the department and made as soon as the
student is admitted to a graduate program.
Final Term Registration-During the term in which the fi-
nal examination is given and during the term the degree is received,
a student must be registered for at least three credits in fall or spring
and 2 credits in the summer that count toward his/her graduate
degree. Thesis students must be registered in 6971 and doctoral
students in 7980 for at least the minimum required registration.
Cleared Prior-Students exempt from final term registration
must meet all of the following conditions before the start of the
first day of classes:
1. Correctly registered in the preceding term.
2. Completed all degree requirements, including final submission
of the dissertation, thesis, or project and the final examina-
tion report.
3. Submitted the final examination form for the nonthesis degrees
4. Cleared all incomplete or other unresolved grades.
5. Filed degree application with Office of the University Registrar.

Add/Drop-Courses may be dropped or added during the drop/
add period without penalty. This period lasts four UF calen-
dar days, or three days for summer sessions, beginning with the


first day of the semester. Classes that meet for the first time after
the drop/add period may be dropped without academic pen-
alty or fee liability by the end of the next business day after the
first meeting. This does not apply to laboratory sections. Af-
ter this period, a course may be dropped and a W will appear
on the transcript. Any course added or dropped after the deadline
will result in a registration fee liability, even for students with
fee waivers.
Retaking Courses-Graduate students may repeat courses
in which they earn failing grades. The grade points from the
first and second attempts are included in the computation of
the grade point average, but the student receives credit for the
second attempt only.


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 Gradu-
ate School for processing (http://www.gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/
education/currentstudents.html).


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 stu-
dents, 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 of 6910 (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 7910; 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 con-
cerning available courses.
Generally graduate courses may not be repeated for credit. How-
ever, 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 co-
ordinators certify that the course work is appropriate for their
programs and when the students receive permission from the
departments and colleges offering the courses. A list of such
courses for each student must be filed with the Graduate School




GENERAL REGULATIONS / 29


Records Office and is limited to a maximum of 9 credits toward
the master's degree and 30 credits toward the doctorate.


GRADES

The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+, B,
C+, C, and S. C+ and C grades count toward a graduate de-
gree if an equal number of credits in courses numbered 5000
or higher have been earned with grades of B+ and A, respec-
tively. 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 (Doc-
toral 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 ap-
proval 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 ap-
proved by the Graduate Curriculum Committee and the Graduate
School. This grade may be used only in special situations where
the expected unit of work may be developed over a period of time
greater than a single term.
Incomplete Grades-Grades of I (incomplete) received during
the preceding semester should be removed as soon as possible. Grades
of I carry no quality points and becomes punitive after on term.
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 performance
or progress toward completion of the planned program become
unsatisfactory to the department, college, or Dean of the Graduate
School. Failure to maintain a B average (3.0) in all work attempted
is, by definition, unsatisfactory scholarship. In addition to an overall
GPA of 3.0, a graduate student must also have a 3.0 GPA in his/
her major (as well as in a minor ifa minor is declared) at the time
of graduation. Students with less than a 3.0 GPA may not hold
an assistantship or fellowship.


FOREIGN LANGUAGE EXAMINATION

A foreign language examination is not required for all degree
programs and the student should contact the graduate coordinator
in the appropriate department for specific information regarding
any requirement of a foreign language.
If a department requires that a student meet the foreign lan-
guage requirement by satisfactory performance on the Graduate
School Foreign Language Tests (GSFLT) in French, Spanish, or
German, the student should contact the Office of Academic Tech-
nology, 1012 Turlington Hall, for an application and payment of
fees. The examination times and dates are listed in the University
Calendar. Educational Testing Service (ETS) no longer administers
this examination and does not accept application fees or issue tickets
of admission for these tests.


EXAMINATIONS

The student must be registered for an appropriate load during
the semester in which any examination is taken. The student's su-
pervisory 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 appropriate
forms, including the signature pages of the thesis or dissertation,
in order for the student to satisfy the requirements of the examination.
The written comprehensive examination 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 administered at the Ag-
ricultural Research and Educational Centers or on the campuses
of the universities in the State University System.
With the approval of all members of the supervisory committee,
one committee member, except for the chair or external member,
may be off-site at a qualifying oral examination or at the final oral
defense of the dissertation or thesis, using modern communica-
tion technology to participate rather than being physically present.


PREPARATION FOR FINAL SEMESTER

It is the student's responsibility to ascertain that all require-
ments have been met and that every deadline is observed. Dead-
line dates are set forth in the University Calendar and by the college,
school, or department. Regular issues of Deadline Dates are dis-
tributed to the departments each semester and available at http:/
/gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/gradcat/2002-2003/critical_dates.html.
When the dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final form,
the student should obtain the Guide for Preparing Theses and Dis-
sertations from the Graduate School Editorial Office (available on
the web at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/etd).
Students must also file a degree application with the Office of
the University Registrar (222 Criser Hall) at the beginning of the
final term and meet minimum registration requirements. See Cleared
Prior in this catalog.

5. All requirements for the degree must be met while the can-
didate is a registered graduate student.
Degrees are certified three times per year in December, May,
and August.



ATTENDANCE AT COMMENCEMENT

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



REQUIREMENTS FOR
MASTER'S DEGREES

The master's degree is conferred only upon completion of a
coherent and focused program of advanced study. Each depart-
ment has set its own minimum degree requirements beyond the
minimum required by the Graduate School.


GENERAL REGULATIONS

The following regulations represent those of the Graduate School.
Colleges and departments may have additional regulations beyond
those stated below. Unless otherwise indicated in the follow-
ing sections concerning master's degrees, these general regulations
apply to all master's degree programs at the University.


Course Requirements-Graduate credit is awarded for courses
numbered 5000 and above. The program of course work for a
master's degree must be approved by the student's adviser, su-
pervisory 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.

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 trans-
ferred from institutions approved for this purpose by the Dean
of the Graduate School. At least half of the required credits, ex-
clusive 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 credits, earned with a grade of A, B+, or
B, may be transferred from an institution approved by the Graduate
School or 15 semester credits from postbaccalaureate work at the
University of Florida. Credits transferred from other universities
will be applied toward meeting the degree requirements but the
grades earned will not be computed in the student's grade-point
average. Acceptance of transfer of credit requires approval of the
student's supervisory committee and the Dean of the Graduate
School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree must be made
during the student's first term of enrollment in the Graduate School.
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 committee
should be appointed as soon as possible after the student has been
admitted to the Graduate School but in no case later than the second
semester of graduate study.
Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs are initiated
by the student, nominated by the respective department chair, ap-
proved by the college dean, and appointed by the Dean of the Gradu-
ate 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




REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 31


12 hours in the first term, the deadline date to appoint a super-
visory committee is at the end of the term in which s/he has ac-
cumulated 12 or more credit hours or at the end of the second
semester. If a minor is designated for any degree, the committee
must include one member as the representative for that proposed
minor. If two minors are designated, two representatives must be
appointed to the committee.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a thesis
must consist of at least two members selected from the Gradu-
ate 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 des-
ignated, 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 department to de-
partment 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 ofAbsence-A master's student who will not be registered
at the University of Florida for a period of two or more semes-
ters 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 in-
dividually 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 credits
of the research course numbered 6971. All students seeking a master's
degree with thesis must register for an appropriate number of credits
in 6971.
The Graduate School requirement for a Master of Arts or Master
of Science degree taken with a nonthesis option is at least 30 credits.
No more than 6 credits of S/U-graded courses may be counted
in meeting the minimum requirements for a nonthesis option. Stu-
dents pursuing the nonthesis option may not use the course num-
bered 6971.


For both nonthesis option and thesis programs, at least half the
required credits, exclusive of 6971, must be in a field of study des-
ignated the major. One or two minors of at least six credits each
may be taken, but a minor is not required by the Graduate School.
Minor work must be in a department other than the major.
Engineering students, working at off-campus centers, who are
pursuing a nonthesis option Master of Science degree, must take
half the course work from full-time University of Florida faculty
members and are required to pass a comprehensive written exami-
nation by an examining committee recommended by the Dean
of the College of Engineering and appointed by the Dean of the
Graduate School. This written comprehensive examination may
be taken at an off-campus site.
Theses-Candidates for the master's degree with thesis must
prepare and present theses (or equivalent in creative work) acceptable
to their supervisory committees and the Graduate School. The can-
didate should consult the Graduate School Editorial Office for
instructions concerning the form of the thesis. The University Cal-
endar specifies final dates for submitting the original copy of the
thesis to the Graduate School.
Electronic Theses-Students who enter in Fall 2001 and af-
ter 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://gradschool.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 for-
warded to the Graduate School by midpoint of the final term. 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 de-
gree requirements only if converted to credit as A, B+, or B in In-
dividual Work. The supervisory committee must indicate that the
work was productive in and by itself and warrants credit as a special
problem or special topic course.
Supervisory Committee-The student's supervisory committee
should be appointed as soon as possible after the student has been
admitted to the Graduate School but in no case later than the end
of the second semester of study. The duties of the supervisory com-
mittee are to advise the student, to check on the student's quali-
fications and progress, to supervise the preparation of the thesis,
and to conduct the final examination.
Final Examination-When the student's course work is sub-
stantially completed, and the thesis is in final form, the supervisory
committee is required to examine the student orally or in writ-
ing 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 ex-
amination may not be scheduled earlier than the semester preceding
the term the degree is to be conferred.




32 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 FORTH
PH.D.

The Doctor of Philosophy is a research degree and is granted
on evidence of general proficiency, distinctive attainment in a special
field, and particularly on ability for independent investigation as
demonstrated in a dissertation presenting original research with
a high degree of literary skill. Consequently, doctoral programs
are more flexible and varied than those leading to other gradu-
ate degrees. The Graduate Council does not specify what courses
will be required for the Doctor of Philosophy degree. The gen-
eral 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 credits
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 semester credits 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 dis-
cipline different from the doctoral program, the master's work
will not be counted in the program unless the department pe-
titions 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 of Florida. All courses to be transferred
must be letter graded with a grade of B or better and must be
demonstrated to relate directly to the degree being sought. All
such transfer requests must be made by petition of the super-
visory committee no later than the third semester of Ph.D. study.
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 by
petition to the Graduate School. In such cases, it is essential that
the petition demonstrate the relevance of the prior course work
to the degree presently being sought.
Major-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to do
the major work in a department or interdisciplinary unit specifically
approved for the offering of doctoral courses and the supervision
of dissertations. These fields are listed under Graduate Programs.


Minor-With the approval of the supervisory 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 department
on the supervisory committee shall suggest from 12 to 24 cred-
its as preparation for a qualifying examination. A part of this back-
ground 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 exami-
nation 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 mi-
nor.


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 re-
quired to reapply for admission upon his/her return. See Read-
mission and Catalog Year.


SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE

Supervisory committees are nominated by the department
chair, approved by the dean of the college concerned, and ap-
pointed 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 super-
visory committees.
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 a yearly letter of evaluation in addition
to the S/U grades awarded for the research courses 7979 and
7980. The chair should write this letter after consultation with
the supervisory committee.
5. To conduct the qualifying examination or, in those cases where
the examination is administered by the department, to take




REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 33


part in it. In either event, the entire committee must 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 knowl-
edge. No fewer than four faculty members, including all mem-
bers of the supervisory committee shall be present with the
candidate for this examination. Only members of the offi-
cial supervisory committee may sign the dissertation and they
must approve the dissertation unanimously. (See Examina-
tions in the General Regulations section of this catalog for varia-
tion 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 educa-
tional 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 departmental
committee, in order to bring University-wide standards to bear
upon the various doctoral degrees.
A cochair from the same department may 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 stu-
dent should check with the graduate coordinator of the appropriate
department for specific information. The foreign language depart-
ments offer special classes for graduate students who are begin-
ning the study of a language. See the current Schedule of Courses
for the languages in which this assistance is available.
The ability to use the English language correctly and effectively,
as judged by the supervisory committee, is required of all candidates.


CAMPUS RESIDENCE REQUIREMENT

Beyond the first 30 credits counted toward the doctoral degree,
students must complete 30 credits enrolled at the University of
Florida campus or at an approved branch station of the Univer-
sity 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 respon-
sibility 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 approved by
the Graduate School. At least one semester of additional prepa-
ration is considered essential before re-examination.
Time Lapse-Between the oral portion of the qualifying ex-
amination and the date of the degree there must be a minimum
of two semesters. The semester in which the qualifying examination
is passed is counted, provided that the examination occurs before
the midpoint of the term.


ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY

A graduate student does not become a candidate for the Ph.D.
degree until granted formal admission to candidacy. Such admission
requires the approval of the student's supervisory committee, the
department chair, the college dean, and the Dean of the Gradu-
ate School. The approval must be based on (1) the academic record
of the student, (2) the opinion of the supervisory committee con-
cerning overall fitness for candidacy, (3) an approved dissertation
topic, and (4) a qualifying examination as described above. Ap-
plication for admission to candidacy should be made as soon
as the qualifying examination has been passed and a disser-
tation topic has been approved by the student's supervisory
committee.


DISSERTATION

Electronic Dissertation-Students who enter in Fall 2001 and
after are required to submit their final dissertations electronically.
Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis when submit-
ted in writing by the department to the Graduate School. These
exceptions are intended for the student who is off-campus dur-
ing the semester the dissertation is submitted. More information
is available at http://etd.circa.ufl.edu/calendar.html, http://
gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/etd, or from the Graduate School Edito-
rial 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 com-
mittee 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,




34 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 ac-
companied by a letter of transmittal from the supervisory chairperson,
and all doctoral forms.
After corrections have been made, and no later than the speci-
fied formal submission date, the fully signed copy of the dis-
sertation (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 at http://www.uflib.ufl.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, S113 Criser Hall, for microfilming their dis-
sertations, and to sign an agreement authorizing publication by
microfilm.
Copyright-The candidate may choose to register the copy-
right of the microfilmed dissertation for a charge of $45 payable
by a certified or cashier's check or money order to PQIL attached
to the signed microfilm agreement form. To assure receipt of
the valuable Copyright Registration Certificate, candidates must
give permanent addresses through which they can always be
reached.


GUIDELINES FOR RESTRICTION ON
RELEASE OF DISSERTATIONS
Research performed at the University can effectively contribute
to the education of our students and to the body of knowledge
that is our heritage only if the results of the research are pub-
lished freely and openly. Conflicts can develop when it is in the
interests of sponsors of university research to restrict such pub-
lication. When such conflicts arise, the University must decide
what compromises 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 pre-
publication reviews of research results and which affect sub-
sequent publication of these results, should be considered
advisory rather than mandatory.
2. The maximum delay in publication allowed for pre-reviews

preceding the semester in which the degree is conferred, the can-
didate will be given a final examination, oral or written or both,
by the supervisory committee meeting on campus. All supervisory
committee members must be present with the candidate at the
oral portion of this examination. At the time of the defense all
committee members should sign the ETD Submission Approval
form or signature pages and all committee and attending 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 re-
quirements 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 at http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/education/currentstudents.html,
should be filled out by the candidate, signed by the supervisory
chair and college dean, and returned to the Graduate School for
verification and processing.
Although a student may have fulfilled academic requirements,
the degree is not awarded until the Graduate School certifies the
degree to the University Registrar. That is done at the end of Fall,
Spring, and Summer C terms for all students who applied to
graduate. Some employers and licensure boards require the degree
statement on the transcript which is available about three days after
certification in December, May, and August.

functions and behaviors common to business organizations and
(2) the analytical, problem-solving, and decision-making skills es-
sential for effective management. The emphasis is on developing
the student's capacities and skills for business decision making.
The curriculum is structured so that students may extend
their knowledge in a specialized field. The program offers cer-
tificate programs in financial services, supply chain manage-

SPECIALIZED GRADUATE DEGREES / 37


acceptable bachelor's degree is required, along with written essays
and personal recommendations from employers. Some appli-
cants are asked to interview. Applicants whose native, first lan-
guage is not English are required to submit scores for the Test
of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Admission is com-
petitive; thus, meeting minimum requirements is unlikely, in
itself, to result in admission.
A heterogeneous student body is seen as an important asset of
the program. Accordingly, the backgrounds of students include
a wide range of disciplines and cultures. Although the curriculum
assumes no previous academic work in business administration,
enrolling students find introductory course work in statistics, calculus,
and financial accounting beneficial.

MASTER OF LATIN

The Classics Department of the University of Florida offers
the nonthesis Master of Latin degree, a 30 credit, program de-
signed primarily for currently employed, and/or certified teaching
professionals who wish to widen their knowledge of Latin, broaden
their education in the field of classics, and enhance their pro-
fessional qualifications. This degree can be attained through a





42 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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 if their sched-
ules 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 graduate
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 MA. 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 undergraduate
courses (and graduate courses, if any; students must demonstrate
the ability to take Latin course work at the graduate level). Candidates
for this degree normally should be experienced Latin teachers, al-
though this can be waived.
Degree Requirements-This nonthesis degree requires a mini-
mum of 30 credits as a graduate student at the University of Florida,
of which no more than 8 credits, earned with a grade of A, B+,
or B, may be transferred from institutions approved for this purpose
by the Dean of the Graduate School. 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 ap-
plied 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 com-
mittee.
Examination-The supervisory committee will administer
a final oral handwritten comprehensive examination at the
completion of the course work. This examination will con-
sist of (1) an oral part: a one hour examination on the gen-
eral field of Latin literature, and (2) a written part, consist-
ing 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 second-
ary 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

professional education courses may be given provisional ad-
mission and full admission when they have completed the
required 36 credits.
4. Presented a record of successful professional experience, the
appropriateness of which will be determined by the instructional
department passing on the applicant's qualifications for ad-
mission. In some instances, departments may admit students
with the understanding that further experience may be re-
quired before the student will be recommended for the de-
gree.
The judgment about admission of an individual is made by the
major department, the College of Education, and the Graduate
School, University of Florida.


SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION

Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the de-
velopment of the competencies needed for a specific type of em-
ployment. Programs are available in the various areas of con-
centration within the School of Teaching 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 completed during
the seven years immediately preceding the date on which the degree
is awarded.
The Ed.S. degree is awarded at the completion of a planned pro-
gram with a minimum of 72 credits beyond the bachelor's degree
or a minimum of 36 credits beyond the master's degree. All credits
accepted for the program must contribute to the unity and the stated
objective of the total program. Students are tested (in no case earlier
than six months prior to receipt of degree) in both a written and
an oral examination, given on campus by a committee selected by
the 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 de-
gree.
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 require-
ments.
1. At least 30 credits in graduate level courses.
2. At least 12 credits in graduate level professional education
courses.
3. Registration on the Gainesville campus of the University of
Florida for at least 6 credits in a single semester.





46 / GENERAL INFORMATION


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; how-
ever, credit transferred from another institution reduces propor-
tionately the credit transferred from University of Florida off-campus
courses.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's degree only
must, during the 72-credit program, satisfy these requirements in
addition to the requirements of the Master of Education degree
or its equivalent.


DOCTOR OF EDUCATION

A doctoral candidate is expected to achieve understanding of
the broad field of education and competence in an area of special-
ization. Programs are available in the various areas of emphasis within
the School of Teaching and Learning or the Departments of Coun-
selor Education; Educational Leadership, Policy, and Foundations;
Educational Psychology; and Special Education.
Admission to a program of work leading to the degree of Doctor
of Education requires admission to the Graduate School.
A minimum of 90 credits beyond the bachelor's degree is re-
quired for the doctoral degree. Master's degrees outside the ma-
jor require school/departmental petition to the Dean of the Graduate
School. All master's degrees counted in the 90-credit minimum
must have been earned within the last seven years. No more than
30 credits of a master's degree from another institution will be trans-
ferred to a doctoral program. All courses beyond the master's degree
taken at another institution, to be applied toward the Doctor of
Education degree, must be taken at an institution offering the doc-
toral degree and must be approved for graduate credit by the Graduate
School of the University of Florida.
Minors-Minor work or work in cognate fields is required. Minor
work may be completed in any department, other than the ma-
jor department, approved for master's or doctoral degree programs
as listed in this catalog. If one minor is selected, at least 15 credits
of work therein will be required; if two minors are chosen, one
minor must include at least 12 credits of course work, the other
at least 5 credits.
Courses in physical education approved by the College of Health
and Human Performance and the Graduate School as subject matter
or content courses may be used in the cognate work or as a mi-
nor.
In lieu of a minor or minors, the candidate may present a suitable
program of no fewer than 15 credits of cognate work in at least
two departments. If two fields are included, there shall be 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 pro-
gram must have the approval of the student's supervisory committee.
The College of Education Graduate Faculty will expect the can-
didate 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 quali-


fying examinations and approval of a dissertation topic. Recom-
mendation to the Graduate School for admission to candidacy is
based on the action of the supervisory committee. Application for
admission to candidacy should be made as soon as the qualifying
examination has been passed and a dissertation topic has been ap-
proved 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 Admis-
sion 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.
At least one semester of additional preparation is considered es-
sential before re-examination.
Research Preparation Requirement-EDF 7486 (Methods
of Educational Research) or its equivalent, for which a basic course
in statistics is a prerequisite, and one other approved research methods
course are minimum requirements in all programs. Additional re-
quirements vary with the department and with the student's plans
for doctoral research.
For information relating to Campus Residence Requirement, the
Supervisory Committee, Time Lapse, the Dissertation, and the Fi-
nalExamination, the student is referred to the material presented
under the heading Requirements for the Ph.D. These statements
are applicable to both degrees.

LOANS

Graduate students may qualify for the following student loans:
Federal Direct Stafford/Ford Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsidized
Stafford/Ford Loans, University of Florida Institutional Loans, and
Federal Perkins Loans. These programs offer long-term, low-in-
terest loans that must be repaid when the borrower graduates, with-
draws, or drops to less than half-time enrollment.
In general, students may borrow up to the cost of attendance
minus any other financial aid per academic year at interest rates
from 5% to 8.25% annually. Some loans are based on financial
need; other are not. The actual amount of each loan is based on
financial need and/or program limits.
To apply, students should obtain a Gator Aid Application Guide
and a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from
the Office for Student Financial Affairs in S-107 Criser Hall.
Or, students can apply on the Internet using the Federal
Department of Education's FAFSA on the website at:
www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students should not wait until they have been
admitted to apply for aid. For fall 2003 loans, applications should
be submitted as soon as possible after January 1, 2003. Although
students may apply for Federal Direct Stafford/Ford Loans through-
out the year, they must observe the deadlines set each semester for
applying for loans for the following semester and should always
apply as early as possible. The deadlines are available in the Gator Aid
Application Guide and on SFA's web site at www.ufsa.ufl.edu/sfa.
Short-Term Loans-The University also has an emergency short-
term loan program to help students meet temporary financial needs
related to educational expenses. Graduate students may borrow
up to $1,000 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 takes about 48 hours.
Applications are available at SFA 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
graduate students will find it useful to supplement them through
a variety of services and cooperative programs drawing upon the
resources of many other libraries. The following entry describes
the UF libraries, local collection strengths and the physical dis-
tribution of collections among campus libraries as well as the ser-
vices available to assist students and faculty in locating needed in-
formation.
The Libraries of the University of Florida consist of nine libraries.
Seven are in the system known as the George A. Smathers Libraries
of the University of Florida and two (Health Sciences and Law)
are attached to their respective administrative units. All of the libraries
serve all the University's faculty and students, but each has a special
mission to be the primary support of specific colleges and degree
programs. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of research, scholars
may find collections built in one library to serve a specific discipline
or constituency to be of great importance to their own research
in another discipline. It most likely will be necessary to use more
than one library to discover all of the resources pertinent to a
particular research interest. All students and faculty are provided
library service upon presentation of the University of Florida Gator
One Card. This card is used to circulate books, to borrow reserves,
and to establish identity for other library services such as Inter-
library Loan and remote access to databases.
The library home page (http://www.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 collections
and services. Indexes, abstracts, and other reference resources-
including hundreds ofspecailized databases-are available. From
the home page it is possible to connect to the full text of articles
in about 20,000 journals as well as thousands of books, documents,
maps, and manuscripts.
The library home page provides a link to the library catalog that
contains records for all the University of Florida collections in all
formats (except for some special archival, map, and document
collections that must be accessed through catalogs and finding aids
at the collection location). It connects to lists of materials currently
on course reserve and provides links to a growing number of these





52 / GENERAL INFORMATION


materials that are available in electronic form. The library home
page also provides access to the catalogs of the other State Uni-
versity System libraries, the Center for Research Libraries, and libraries
in other states and foreign nations.
Subject guide 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 infor-
mation on services and policies. It enables students to link to the
libraries' chat reference service, RefeXpress, and to electronic forms
which allow making suggestions, renewing materials, initiating
interlibrary loan requests, and recalling materials charged to other
borrowers.
Workstations in UF libraries provide access to this whole array
of electronic resources and services. They may also be accessed readily
from other campus workstations, from any workstation with a
University of Florida IP address (campus location or off-campus
GatorLink account) and by using a proxy and your library card
number (please see http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/access.html for details
on remote access).
Because of the 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 consist-
ing 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.
Smathers Library holds the Latin American Collection and the
Special Collections-rare books and manuscripts, E 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 and Docu-
ments Department, which is a regional depository for U.S. fed-
eral government publications
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 edu-
cation collections and temporarily houses the Judaica Collection.
Music Library (231 Music Building) holds most music materials
and a collection of recordings.
The Allen H. Neuharth Journalism Library holds a small col-
lection of materials relating to journalism and mass communication.
Health Science Center Library holds major resources for the
medical sciences, related life sciences, and veterinary medicine.
Legal Information Center holds major resources for law and
related social sciences.
Together the Libraries hold over 3,570,000 cataloged volumes,
7,200,000 microforms, 1,280,000 documents, 738,000 maps and
geographic images, and nearly 18,000 computer datasets. The Li-
braries have built a number of nationally significant research col-
lections 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 Li-
brary which is an extensive repository of maps, atlases, aerial pho-


tographs, 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 ofJudaica 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 Ameri-
can collection of Spanish colonial documents concerning the south-
eastern 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 documents from
1850-1940 (Library West), Latin American art and architecture
(AFA and Smathers Library), national bibliographies (Library West,
Reference), U.S. Census information, especially in electronic format,
and other U.S. documents (Library West, Documents), the ru-
ral sociology of Florida and tropical and subtropical agriculture
collections (Marston Science Library), and English and Ameri-
can literature (Library West).
Reference service is provided to library users in each library and
is also available via telephone, e-mail, and interactive chat. All of
the libraries provide special services to assist students and faculty
with disabilities in their use of the libraries; information is available
at all circulation desks. At the beginning of each semester, the Li-
braries offer orientation programs designed to teach those new
to campus what services are available and how to use them. Schedules
are posted in each library at the beginning of each term and are
available under the training session portion of the library home
page. Individual assistance is available at the reference desk in each
library. In addition, instructional librarians will work with faculty
and teaching assistants to develop and present course-specific library
instruction sessions. Instruction coordinators are available in Hu-
manities and Social Science Reference in Library West, in Mar-
ston Science Library, and in the branches.
Subject specialists, who work closely with faculty and gradu-
ate 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 con-
sult 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 ap-
propriate 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 specialized services are
available at reference and circulation desks throughout the Libraries.
Current information regarding library hours may be obtained
by selecting Library Hours and Phone Numbers from the home
page (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu) or calling the desired library-

as well as fund-raising and development; Department of Natu-
ral History houses the state's natural history collections and is staffed
by scientists and support personnel concerned with the study of
modern and fossil plants and animals, and historic and prehistoric
people and their cultures; Exhibits and Public Programs in Powell
Hall is staffed by specialists in the interpretation of natural his-
tory through exhibits and educational programs. The scientific and
educational faculty (curators) hold appointments in appropriate
University of Florida academic departments. Through these ap-
pointments, they participate in both undergraduate and gradu-
ate teaching programs.
The William W and Nadine M. McGuire Center for Lepidoptera
Research will be attached to the existing Florida Museum of National
History's Powell Hall. The facility, to be named McGuire Hall,
is a proposed 40,000-square-foot Lepidoptera center devoted
principally to housing one of the world's largest and most com-
plete Lepidoptera collections and the associated research facilities
for their study. It also will contain a public education and live butterfly
exhibit. The Center is projected to open in early 2003.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is a division of
the Department of Natural History of the Florida Museum ofNatu-
ral History. The combined Sarasota and Gainesville holdings in
Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum of Entomology as the largest
in the western hemisphere and the premier Lepidoptera research
center in the world. The Allyn Museum publishes the Bulletin of
the Allyn Museum of Entomology and sponsors the Karl Jordan
Medal. The Allyn Collection serves as a major source for taxonomic
and biogeographic research by a number ofMuseum and Department
of Zoologyfaculty 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 in-
cludes an array of habitats including marsh, lakes, sandhills, and
mesic hammocks. Jointly administered by the School of Forest Re-
sources 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 na-
tive longleaf pine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and dissertation
research projects consistent with the aims of the preserve are ac-
tively encouraged.

plants and 170,000 specimens of nonvascular plants. In addition,
the herbarium operates a modern gas chromatographic/mass spec-
trometer laboratory for the study and identification of natural plant
products.
The research collections are under the care of curators who en-
courage the scientific study of the Museum's holdings. Materials
are constantly being added to the collections both through gifts
from friends and as a result of research activities of the Museum
staff. The archaeological and ethnological collections are noteworthy,
particularly in the aboriginal and Spanish colonial material remains
from the southeastern United States and the Caribbean. There are
extensive study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks, reptiles,
amphibians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate fossils, plant fossils,


and a bioacoustic archive consisting of original recordings of animal
sounds. Opportunities are provided for students, staff, and vis-
iting scientists to use the collections. Research and field work are
presently sponsored in the archaeological, paleontological, and zoo-
logical fields. Students interested in these specialties should make
application to the appropriate teaching department. Graduate as-
sistantships are available in the Museum in areas emphasized in

ENGLISH SKILLS FOR
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
The University of Florida makes available three English language
programs to help international graduate students improve their
proficiency in English. These programs are (1) the English Lan-
guage Institute, (2) Scholarly Writing, and (3) Academic Spo-
ken English.
Applicants whose command of English is not as good as ex-
pected may be required by their departments to attend the English
Language Institute (ELI), an intensive English program designed
to provide rapid gains in English proficiency. An ELI student
may require one, two, or exceptionally, three semesters of full-
time English study before entering Graduate School. Information
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. Applicants whose
verbal GRE scores are below 320 or who have been admitted pro-
visionally with aTOEFL 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 EAP5845. Another course, EAP 5846-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, 4131 Turlington Hall, telephone (352)
392-0639.
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 EAP 5835, a course to improve general oral lan-
guage skills. Another course, EAP 5836, is offered to students whose
proficiency is good enough to begin teaching but who still need
help learning to use English in an American classroom. Teachers
are videotaped and their class work discussed constructively by the
ASE staff. The third course, EAP 5837, is a tutorial.

GRADUATE SCHOOL EDITORIAL
OFFICE
The Graduate School Editorial Office provides a Guide for Pre-
paring Theses and Dissertations to assist the student in the prepa-
ration of the manuscript and offers suggestions and advice on such
matters as the preparation and reproduction of illustrative materials,
the treatment of special programs, the use of copyrighted mate-
rial, and how to secure a copyright for a dissertation. The following
procedures apply to the Graduate School's editorial services to stu-
dents.
1. The responsibility for acceptable English in a thesis or
dissertation, as well as the originality and acceptable quality of the
content, lies with the student and the supervisory committee.
2. The Graduate School editorial staff act only in an ad-
visory capacity but will answer questions regarding correct grammar,
sentence structure, and acceptable forms of presentation.
3. The editorial staff will examine a limited portion of the
final rough draft and make recommendations concerning the form
of the thesis or dissertation before the final typing.
4. At the initial submission of the dissertation, the Editorial
Office staff check the format and pagination and read portions
of the text for general usage, references, and bibliographical form.
Master's theses are checked for format, reference style, pagination,
and signatures. Before final submission, ETD corrections and links
to table of contents and lists of figures and tables are checked.
It is the responsibility of the student and the supervisory
chairman to notify the Graduate School in writing of any changes
that have been made in the structure of the supervisory com-
mittee.
5. The Editorial Office maintains a file of experienced thesis
typists and manuscript editors that the student may consult in the
document preparation.
For more information, call (352)392-1282, fax (352)846-1855,

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 con-
flicts. The office provides an formal avenue of redress for students'
problems and grievances, which arise in the course of interacting
with the institution. By considering the problems in an unbiased
way, the Ombudsman works to achieve a fair resolution and works
to protect the rights of all involved properties.
The Office of the Ombudsman deals with student concerns of
an academic nature. Students are required to first contact the in-
structor, the department chair, and the college dean before seeking
assistance from the Ombudsman, although instances do exist where
contact with the University Ombudsman first is beneficial.
In many instances, nonacademic issues can be easily and readily
resolved for students merely by providing an 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, 164 Grinter Hall, telephone (352)392-
6622.

STUDENT SERVICES / 61


participation, to the fullest extent reasonably possible, of these in-
dividuals 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

The Fisher School of Accounting offers graduate work leading
to the Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) degree and the Ph.D. de-
gree 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, account-
ing 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 admis-
sion standards of at least the following: A combined verbal and
quantitative score of 1200 on the Graduate Record Examination
(GRE), or a score of 550 on the Graduate Management Admis-
sion 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.
Combined Degree Program-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 degree
in accounting may enter the one-year M.Acc. degree program
which requires satisfactory completion of 34 hours of course work.
A minimum of 20 credits must be in graduate level courses; a
minimum of 18 credits must be in graduate level accounting
courses. The remaining credits are selected from recommended
elective courses that vary by area of specialization. Students are
cautioned to seek early advisement since many graduate courses
are offered only once a year.
Requirements for the Ph.D. degree include a core of courses
in mathematical methods, statistics, and economic theory; one or
two supporting fields selected by the student; and a major field
of accounting. Students are expected to acquire teaching expe-
rience 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
6940 for a minimum of three credits. Program requirements in-
clude fulfillment of a research skill area and a dissertation on an
accounting-related topic.

described in the General Information section.
The Ph.D. program is designed to prepare graduates for do-
mestic and international teaching, research, extension, admin-
istrative, and leadership positions in both the public and pri-
vate sectors. Areas of specialization include teaching and learn-
ing, communication, leadership and volunteer development,
and adult and extension education. Courses are taught from
an agricultural and natural resources context and are broadly
applicable in education, business, government, and agency set-
tings.
The Master of Science degree includes three curriculum options
for graduate. 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

These members of the faculty of Florida State University (') and
Florida Atlantic University (1) are also members of the Graduate
Faculty of the University of Florida and participate in the doc-
toral degree program in the University of Florida Department of
Anthropology.
The Department of Anthropology offers graduate work lead-
ing to the Master of Arts (thesis or nonthesis option) and Doc-
tor 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 in-
tegration 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 anthropology and 2) begin early
specialization and integration of a subfield of anthropology and an
outside field. More information about these two options is found
in the department publication on graduate programs and policies
that may be obtained by writing directly to the Department.
The Department of Anthropology generally requires a minimum
score of 1100 on the Graduate Record Examination and a 3.2
overall grade point average based on a 4.0 system.
Candidates for the M.A. are required to take ANG 6034 and
ANG 6917. No more than six hours ofANG 6971 will be counted
toward the minimum requirements for the M.A. with thesis.
Knowledge of a foreign language may be required by the student's
supervisory committee. Other requirements for the program are
listed in this catalog under Requirements for Master's Degrees.
Students enrolled in the M.A. program who wish to continue
their studies for a Ph.D. must apply to the Department for cer-
tification. Minimum requirements will normally include 1) a
minimum grade point average of 3.5 in all graduate anthropol-
ogy courses and a minimum of 3.2 in other courses, 2) a grade
of pass on the comprehensive M.A. examination, and 3) a the-
sis, 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 ap-
plications.

sites for the required thesis or project. Undergraduate courses-
3000 and 4000 level-in the major do not count toward the 52-
hour minimum requirements for the graduate degree. Course
sequences in history and theory, materials and methods, technol-
ogy, structures, and practice must be completed.
Accredited Five- Year Professional Base-For those students hold-
ing 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 that compliments
the needs of the applicant is developed. The minimum registra-
tion is 30 credits; however, it may increase if transcript reviews
reveal further course work is needed to meet registration and
curriculum requirements. ARC 6356 is required and is prereq-
uisite for the required thesis or master's project.
Most states require that an individual intending to become an
architect hold an accredited degree. Two types of degrees are
accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board: (1)
the Bachelor of Architecture, which requires a minimum of five
years of study, and (2) the Master of Architecture, which requires
a minimum of three years of study after an unrelated bachelor's
degree or two years after a related preprofessional bachelor's de-
gree. These professional degrees are structured to educate those
who aspire to registration and licensure to practice as architects.
Student Work-The College may retain student work for the
purpose of record, exhibition, or instruction.
Master of Science in Architectural Studies- The M.S.A.S.
is a nonprofessional degree for those students who wish to engage
in advanced investigations in specialized areas of architectural
history, theory, technology, design, preservation, or practice.
Students with a bachelor's degree in any discipline from an ac-
credited university are eligible to apply to this program; the pro-
posed area of focus should be precisely defined in the application.
This is a three-to-four-semester program (32 hours minimum) that
includes a thesis. (No more than six hours of ARC 6971 may be
counted in the minimum credit hours for the degree.) Interdis-
ciplinary study is encouraged.


The School sponsors special curricula in architecture to enhance
the academic program. Preservation Institute: Caribbean, Preser-
vation Institute: Nantucket, and Vicenza Institute ofArchitecture
(Italy) accept students, not only from the University of Florida,
but from academic circles throughout the United States and the
world for year-round study. All students in graduate architecture
programs at the University of Florida are offered the opportunity
to apply for one or more of these programs.
Applications-All applications for fall semester graduate ad-
mission, including official transcripts, GRE scores, and TOEFL
scores, if necessary, must be received by the Office of the Regis-
trar by February 15. In addition to satisfying University require-
ments for admission, applicants are required to submit to the
Graduate Program Assistant, School of Architecture, 231 ARCH,
Box 115702, the following: a portfolio of their creative work; a
scholarly statement of intent and objectives; and three letters of
recommendation. This material must be received by February 15
to be considered for admission in the following fall semester.
(Portfolio must be accompanied by self-addressed, stamped en-
velope.) Students may apply after the February 15 deadline but
will only be considered if spaces become available. (Updates of
portfolios are accepted after February 15; however, applications
will not be considered until they are complete.)
The School reserves the right to retain student work for pur-
poses of record, exhibition, or instruction. Field trips are required
of all students; students should plan to have adequate funds avail-
able. It may be necessary to assess studio fees to defray costs of
base maps and other generally used materials.

ART AND ART HISTORY / 81


Master of Fine Arts Degree-The School offers the M.F.A.
degree in art with concentrations in ceramics, creative photog-
raphy, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design,
and electronic intermedia. Enrollment is competitive and limited.
Candidates for admission should have adequate undergraduate
training in art. Deficiencies may be corrected before beginning
graduate study. Applicants must submit a portfolio for admission
consideration. A minimum of three years residency is normally
required for completion of the requirements for this degree, which
for studio students culminates with an M.F.A. exhibition. The
School reserves the right to retain student work for purposes of
record, exhibition, or instruction.
The M.F.A. requires a minimum of 60 credit hours. ART 6897
is required for all M.F.A. majors. Twenty-four hours must be in
an area of specialization. Twelve hours of studio electives outside
the area of specialization, six hours of art history electives; three
hours of aesthetics, theory, or criticism; six hours of electives; and
six hours of individual project or thesis research comprise the
normal course requirements. Although the M.F.A. is a thesis
degree, students usually produce a creative project in lieu of thesis.
Students should see the Graduate Program Adviser for the School's
requirements for the creative project. (If the student elects to write
a thesis, he/she must discuss the reasons with the Graduate Pro-
gram Adviser and the supervisory committee during the second
year and make appropriate modifications. ARH 5815 is required
for all students who select the written thesis.)
Master of Arts Degree in Art Education-The School offers
the M.A. in art education. In addition to meeting requirements
of the Graduate School for admission, prospective students should
(1) hold a degree in art education or have teaching experience in
a k-12 school art program or alternative art education setting; (2)
send up to ten 35mm slides of original works of art and a research
paper, article, or other sample of academic writing; and (3) send
up to ten slides or photographs of student art work and a sample
of curriculum materials if available; and (4) submit three current
letters of recommendation. These application materials should be
sent to Graduate Secretary, School of Art and Art History, Box
115801, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-5801.
The M.A. in art education requires a minimum of 36 credit
hours. ARE 6047 and ARE 6148 are required. The basic plan of
study includes three credits of an approved art education elective;
nine credits in studio courses; three credits in art history; six credits
in art history, studio, art education, or education electives; three
credits of ARE 6705; and three credits of ARE 6971 or ARE 6973.
To be admitted to candidacy, students must pass a comprehen-
sive examination at the beginning of the second year. The pro-
gram culminates in an oral examination on the thesis or project
in lieu of thesis.
Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees in Art
History-The School offers graduate programs leading to the M.A.
and Ph.D. degrees. For complete details of the M.A. and Ph.D.
degree requirements, see the art history graduate adviser. Art history
students may participate in courses offered by the State Univer-
sity System's programs in London and Florence. Other study
abroad programs may be approved by the graduate program ad-
viser.
For the M.A. degree, the School offers areas of emphasis in
Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance/Baroque, Modern, and Non-
Western art history (including African, Native American, Asian,
and Oceanic).
A minimum of 36 credit hours is required: ARH 5815 (3 cred-
its), 27 hours with at least one graduate seminar course in four
different areas of emphasis, and ARH 6971 (6 credits). Nine credits


may be taken in related areas with the graduate program adviser's
approval.
Students must pass a review at the end of the first year and a
comprehensive art history examination at the beginning of the
second year for admission to candidacy. Failure to pass the review
or the examination will result in adjustments to the student's
program or, if warranted, dismissal from the program.
Reading proficiency in a foreign language appropriate to the
major area of study must be demonstrated before thesis research
is begun. Language courses are not applicable toward degree credit.
For the Ph.D. degree, the School offers the same areas of em-
phasis as for the M.A. degree. Up to 30 credits from the M.A.
degree may apply toward the 90 credit Ph.D. degree.
A program of 60 credit hours beyond the M.A. degree is re-
quired. Core courses will consist of a minimum of 30 hours in
art history: 18 hours in a primary area (5000-level or above), 9
hours in secondary area (5000-level or above), and 3 hours of
theory/methodology of art history (if ARH 5815 or its equiva-
lent has not been taken as part of the M.A.). An additional 12
hours of outside electives taken in other schools or departments
are required in a disciplines) related to the primary area of study.
Finally, 18 hours of dissertation research and writing is required.
By the end of the second semester or equivalent full-time study,
students should form their supervisory committee that must in-
clude a minimum of four Graduate Faculty members, one of which
must agree to serve as chair of the committee and will be the
primary dissertation adviser. The supervisory committee will also
act as the qualifying examination committee.
Normally students will take the qualifying examination dur-
ing the spring term of the third year in residence. The examina-
tion is both written and oral. It will cover the major and minor
art history areas of emphasis as well as the student's preliminary
formulation of a dissertation topic and provisional statement of
the approaches to that topic as expressed in the dissertation pro-
spectus.
Upon successful completion of the qualifying examination, the
approval by the supervisory committee of the dissertation prospec-
tus, and fulfilling all other course and language requirements, the
student makes formal application for a change of status to Ph.D.
candidacy. Normally, a student will be expected to present the
completed dissertation and defend it at an oral defense conducted
by the supervisory committee by the end of the sixth year in the
program.
For Ph.D. students, reading knowledge of two research languages
other than English must be demonstrated by the end of the sec-
ond year of course work, or by the end of the first semester in the
case of transfer students. Language courses are not applicable
toward degree credit.
Master of Arts Degree in Museology (Museum Studies)-
The School offers this interdisciplinary program that consists of
both academic and practical work. The curriculum allows students
to do graduate work in a disciplinary emphasis (art history, an-
thropology, history, education, or the natural sciences) and at the
same time complete a concentrated study in professional museum
practices. The M.A. degree in museology requires 48 credit hours
including 15 credits of museum studies courses (seminar, 3 credits;
collections I, 3 credits; collections II, 3 credits; exhibitions, 3
credits; elective, 3 credits); 15 graduate credits in a disciplinary
focus, 6 credits of internship; 6 credits of electives, and 6 cred-
its of individual credit.
Several on-campus sites provide the program with laboratories
for training students in museum work, including the University





82 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION


Galleries, Harn Museum of Art, Florida Museum of Natural
History, and the "gallery" at Reitz Union.
Students must complete a 6-credit internship of at least 300
hours at an approved museum. In this experience students are
assigned to specific projects in which they will gain first-hand
experience in museum work. The Harn Museum of Art or the
Florida Museum of Natural History may be able to oversee a few
interns, but students are encouraged to apply for internships at
other U.S. institutions or abroad.
Students must pass a comprehensive examination that includes
sections for the academic disciplinary emphasis and for the museum
studies program. The student's supervisory committee creates the
exam, which is administered by the program director. The supervi-
sory committee determines satisfactory or unsatisfactory performance.
A project in lieu of thesis (or thesis) must be selected, research,
and carried out under the direction of a supervisory committee.
Students register for project-in-lieu-of-thesis credits for two se-
mesters. (If a thesis is chosen, it must be justified through the
director and the supervisory committee, and 3 credits of Research
and Methodology must precede thesis credit.)
Master of Arts Degree in Digital Arts and Sciences- The
Master of Arts degree in digital arts and sciences (DAS) is a two-
year, interdisciplinary program. Students seeking admission are
expected to have an undergraduate background including 1) a
degree in one of the fine arts or liberal arts; 2) a body of work that
demonstrates accomplishment in the intended area; and 3) a body
of work that can clearly be enhanced with skills to be acquired
in the DAS program. Deficiencies may be corrected before be-
ginning graduate study. Admission into the program requires the
submission of a portfolio with digital representations of work done
by the artist. The medium for this portfolio is digital, either on
a CD or as a web page, preferably both.
The M.A. degree in digital arts and sciences requires 36 credit
hours, including studio and computer courses. A creative project
in lieu of thesis must be selected, researched, and carried out under
the direction of a supervisory committee. Students are advised by
the graduate program adviser on the requirements of the creative
project. The School reserves the right to retain student work for
purposes of record, exhibition, or instruction.

(UFIRAL) is a state-of-the art laboratory for the design and con-
struction of advanced near-infrared and mid-infrared instrumen-
tation to be used on major telescopes around the world. Such
instruments will provide support for a broad range of scientific
research programs within the Department. The UFIRAL recently
commissioned OSCIR, its first instrument, a mid-infrared camera
and spectrometer system.
Solar System-The planetary science research groups are pri-
marily concerned with the study of small bodies in the Solar System


- Asteroids, comets, meteoroids, and interplanetary dust particles.
Cometary programs include the study of the composition of the
comae and the nuclei of comets. Researchers are also active in
studying and modeling the production and orbital evolution of
interplanetary dust particles in the zodiacal cloud. The proper-
ties of cosmic dust and planetary aerosols are studied in the Labo-
ratory for Astrophysics using its Microwave Analog-to-Light Scat-
tering facility to simulate accurately the scattering of electromag-
netic radiation. The laboratory also develops hardware for NASA
and international space agencies to measure the optical proper-
ties of dust particles in diverse environments. The planetary ra-
dio astronomy group operates the Radio Observatory (UFRO),
one of the two largest observatories in the world dedicated to the
study of decametric radio emission from the giant planets.
Stellar Astronomy-The stellar astronomy group mainly con-
centrates on the synthesis of observable quantities for interact-
ing binaries and the simultaneous analysis of X-ray pulse delays,
light curves, and radial velocity curves for X-ray binaries. The
widely used Wilson-Devinney code is maintained and dissemi-
nated by the group. Astrometry programs include improving the
accuracy and reliability of the statistical analysis of astrometric
measurements and evaluating the problems of parameter estima-
tion. The Department maintains the International Card Catalog
of Photometric Binaries which consists of references and biblio-
graphic notes for over 3000 eclipsing binary stars.
Star Formation-Theoretical studies emphasize the influences
of thermodynamics, velocity fields, and interface instabilities upon
star formation. Observational studies focus on investigating the
properties of giant molecular clouds and the evolution of newly
born stars in isolated and cluster environments in order to un-
derstand the origin of the initial stellar mass distributions and to
search for and study circumstellar, protoplanetary disks.
Structure and Dynamics of Galaxies-Observational and
theoretical programs include a study of the structure, dynamics,
and modeling of galaxies. The properties of these galaxies are
investigated using N-body and hydrodynamical codes. Ideas and
techniques from nonlinear dynamics are applied to problems in
galactic dynamics and cosmology, including the study of the tran-
sient behavior of chaotic orbits and the processes of nonviolent
relaxation. In addition the properties of dark matter halos are being
investigated.
Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology-Observational
programs investigate the formation and evolution of distant gal-
axies, by emphasizing stellar populations of high redshift galax-
ies to determine how and when the stars that make up normal field
galaxies formed. Stellar populations of nearby galaxies are also used
to investigate the fossil record of the formation of galaxies. Op-
tical and infrared investigations of the variable properties of
starburst galaxies, AGNs and QSOs have been made since 1968.
Theoretical investigations focus on applications of general rela-
tivity and particle physics to understand conditions in the very
early universe.
Observational Opportunities-Research programs use national
and international ground-and space-based astronomical facilities
such as Arecibo, BIMA, Cassmi, CTIO, COBE, Galileo, HST,
IRAM, IRAS, IRTF, ISO, KPNO, La Palma, NRAO, OVRO,
SIRTF, and Ulysses. Students can also use the University of
Florida's Rosemary Hill Observatory which houses 76 cm and 46
cm reflectors.
Computing Facilities-The Astronomy Department maintains
a network of high performance Sun Sparc and DEC work stations,
along with several Pentium PCs. In addition, supercomputer access

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology fac-
ulty mentor Ph.D. students in the College of Medicine interdis-
ciplinary program (IDP) in medical sciences. Students who are
interested in pursuing a doctoral degree can view specific features
of the biochemistry and molecular biology concentration at http:/
/www.med.ufl.edu.biochem and http://idp.med.ufl.edu/. Admis-
sion information is found on the IDP site.
Department faculty also mentor Ph.D. students in other col-
lege programs and participate actively in the research and teaching
functions of various centers such as the Center for Mammalian
Genetics and the Center for Structural Biology. The Department
offers a wide variety of courses for graduate students studying in
the life sciences.
The research expertise of the faculty spans the areas from cell
biology, metabolism, and molecular biology to physical biochem-
istry/structural biology. Current research interests include vi-
ral protease inhibitors, viral RNA replication, bioenergetics and
proton translocation, X-chromosome structure and function,
cytoskeletal assembly and dynamics, enzyme mechanism and
control, chromatin structure, gene expression and regulation,
mitochondrial biogenesis and evolution, genetics of inherited
disease, nutrient membrane transporters, protein site-directed
mutagenesis, ribosome structure and function, signal transduc-
tion,, structural biology and dynamics of macromolecules, pro-
tein-nucleic acid interactions, transgenic animal models, and
virus crystal structure.
Prospective graduate students should have adequate train-
ing in chemistry and biology. Minor deficiencies may be
made up immediately after entering graduate school. Pre-
vious undergraduate experience in a research laboratory is
highly recommended. Doctoral students are required to take
a core IDP course in the fall of their first year and begin-
ning in the spring semester students take advanced classes
in areas of interest. Specific advanced level courses may be
recommended by the student's supervisory chair and com-
mittee.
The following courses are open to all graduate students and
advanced undergraduates. Additional courses are listed in the
Advanced Concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
