General Information


THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

THE GRADUATE SCHOOL consists of the dean, the assistant deans, the
Graduate Council, and the graduate faculty. General policies and standards
of the Graduate School are established by the graduate faculty. The Gradu-
ate School is responsible for the enforcement of minimum general
standards of graduate work in the University and for the coordination of the
graduate programs of the various colleges and divisions of the University. The
responsibility for the detailed operations of graduate programs is vested in the
individual colleges, divisions, and departments. In most of the colleges an
assistant dean or other official is directly responsible for graduate study in his
college.
The Graduate Council, of which the dean is chairman, assists him in
being the agent of the graduate faculty for execution of policy related to
graduate study and associated research. The Council considers petitions and
recommends the award of graduate degrees. Members of the graduate faculty
are appointed by the dean with the approval of the Graduate Council on the
basis of specific needs and qualifications to meet the needs. Thus members of
the graduate faculty fall into three categories in accordance with their func-
tion: those who are appointed to teach graduate courses, those appointed to
direct the master's theses, and those appointed to direct doctoral dissertations.
No staff member is expected to perform any of these functions without having
been appointed to the graduate faculty, though temporary exceptions may be
made in unusual circumstances. Membership on the graduate faculty is based
upon departmental need and ability to carry out certain responsibilities relative
to the instruction of graduate students, but nonmembership does not imply the
lack of such ability.
In the beginning the organization of graduate study was very informal.
Control was in the hands of a faculty committee which reported directly to
the President. In 1910, however, James N. Anderson, head of the Department
of Ancient Languages, was appointed Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences
and Director of Graduate Work, and in 1930 he became the first dean of
the Graduate School. He was succeeded upon his retirement in 1938 by T. M.
Simpson, head of the Department of Mathematics, who held the position until
he became dean emeritus in 1951. C. F. Byers, head of the Department of
Biological Sciences in the University College, served as acting dean from June
1951 until August 1952, when he was succeeded by the present dean, L. E.
Grinter, who came to Florida from the Illinois Institute of Technology, where
he had served as Vice President, Dean of the Graduate School, and Research
Professor.








2 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
Study leading to graduate degrees has existed at the University of Florida
from the date of the establishment of the University on its present campus. The
first M.A. was awarded in 1906, the major being English, and the first M.S.
in 1908, with 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
major in chemistry and the other with 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 1920 two degrees were awarded in two fields. In 1930,
33 degrees were awarded in 12 fields. In 1940, 66 degrees were awarded in
16 fields. In 1967-68 the total number of degrees awarded was 1,169 in 89
fields. The proportion of doctor's degrees has increased steadily. In 1950,
18 Ph.D.'s and 5 Ed.D.'s were awarded. In 1967-68 the totals were 172
Ph.D.'s and 43 Ed.D.'s.

ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION to the Graduate School must be made to
the Director of Admissions on forms supplied by his office and at times stipu-
lated in the University Calendar. Applications which meet minimum standards
for admissions are referred by the Director to the graduate selection commit-
tees of the various colleges and divisions for approval or disapproval.
No application will be considered unless the complete official transcripts
of all the applicant's undergraduate and graduate work are in the possession
of the Registrar, and no transcript will be accepted as official unless it is
received directly from the Registrar of the institution in which the work was








ADMISSION / 5

done. Official supplementary transcripts are required, as soon as they are
available, for any work completed after making application.
In general, no student who is a graduate of a nonaccredited institution will
be considered for graduate study in any unit of the University.


ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
UNDERGRADUATE RECORD--Unqualified admission to the Graduate School
is commonly dependent upon the presentation of a baccalaureate degree from
an accredited college or curriculum, with an average grade of B for the junior
and senior years. In some units of the Graduate School and on the more ad-
vanced levels of graduate study, an undergraduate average considerably above
B may be required. In some units (see the following two paragraphs) admis-
sion may be considered with an undergraduate average somewhat below B.
College graduate admission selection committees consider not only the general
grade average, but the distribution of work and the quality and extent of
preparation for the graduate program the student proposes to undertake.
In the College of Education, admission to programs leading to the degrees
of Master of Arts in Education or Master of Education is normally limited
to those students who have maintained at least a 2.75 grade-point average
in their upper-division work.
The minimum undergraduate grade average acceptable for admission to
programs leading to the degrees of Master of Arts in Physical Education and
Health, and Master of Physical Education and Health is 2.5, calculated on a
basis of 4.0 as the highest possible average and covering the last two years
of undergraduate work (at least 90 credits).
In the College of Agriculture, admission to graduate study is normally
limited to those students who have maintained at least a 2.75 grade-point
average in their upper-division work and 3.0 in their major subject. For stu-
dents with an undergraduate major in general agriculture, the minimum upper-
division average is 2.85. In exceptional cases, where a candidate has demon-
strated in some other way his fitness to do graduate work, as, for instance,
outstanding achievement since earning the bachelor's degree, he may be con-
sidered for admission.
While the general admissions requirements described above apply to both
master's and doctoral candidates, it should be noted that doctoral candidates
must meet certain additional requirements which vary according to the pro-
grams established by the departments and colleges. Furthermore, it is desirable
for students planning to enter certain colleges and departments to have a
reading knowledge of at least one foreign language.

ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE ENGINEERING
EDUCATION SYSTEM (GENESYS)
The Graduate Engineering Education System (GENESYS) is a part of the
College of Engineering and as such follows the University Calendar. Appli-








6 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
cations can be accepted as late as the final date listed in the University
Calendar; however, since the records of all applicants for GENESYS must be
reviewed by the College of Engineering and time is required to assemble the
necessary transcripts and test scores, it is strongly urged that application be
made well in advance of the final date.
All applicants seeking to enroll for credit in courses through GENESYS
must secure admission to the University of Florida. Application for admission
must be made to the Admissions Section, Office of the Registrar, University
of Florida, on forms obtained from the Resident Director of GENESYS at
Cape Kennedy, Orlando, Daytona Beach, or West Palm Beach. No application
will be considered unless complete official transcripts of all the applicant's
undergraduate and graduate work are in the possession of the Registrar and
no transcript will be accepted as official unless it is received directly from the
Registrar of the institution in which the work was done.
Applicants for GENESYS may be admitted initially to the Graduate
School, or to the College of Engineering, as postgraduate students, depending
upon the applicant's qualifications and objectives. In order to be admitted to
the Graduate School, the GENESYS applicant must satisfy all admission re-
quirements established by the Graduate School. Briefly stated these require-
ments include the presentation of a baccalaureate degree in engineering or
science from an accredited college or curriculum with an average grade of B
for the junior and senior years; a satisfactory score on the Graduate Record
Examinations; and the recommendation of the Graduate Selection Com-
mittee of the College of Engineering.
Applicants for GENESYS who do not fully meet the requirements for
admission to the Graduate School or who do not desire to work for a graduate
degree may be admitted to the College of Engineering as postgraduate stu-
dents. Such students may subsequently be admitted to the Graduate School by
removing any deficiencies in their qualifications. Applications will be con-
sidered individually on the basis of the applicant's overall record. The basic
requirement for admission to GENESYS as a postgraduate student in the
College of Engineering is the possession of the baccalaureate degree in engi-
neering or science from an accredited college or curriculum. Although test
scores from the Graduate Record Examination are not required, applicants
are strongly advised to submit GRE scores on the aptitude and advanced
engineering test as evidence of their qualification for admission. Satisfactory
scores on the GRE will be required for subsequent admission to the Graduate
School.


ADMISSION PROCEDURES FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS
All foreign students whose native tongue is not English making application
for admission to the Graduate School of the University of Florida must present
their scores on TOEFL (Testing of English as a Foreign Language). Each
applicant is asked to write TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, Princeton,
New Jersey 08540, U.S.A., requesting a Bulletin of Information and regis-








ADMISSION / 7
tration form. A final consideration cannot be granted a foreign student's
application for admission until his scores on this test are received by: Ad-
missions Section, Office of the Registrar, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32601, U. S. A.

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION REQUIREMENT
All students are required to submit satisfactory scores on the Graduate
Record Examination for admission to the Graduate School. However, students
educated in foreign countries who apply for admission while residing outside
the United States may be given a postponement of this requirement until the
first quarter of attendance at the University of Florida. Permission to register for
a second quarter will depend upon completion of the examination.

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION
A satisfactory average score on the Graduate Record Examination is re-
quired for admission. Each applicant for admission must submit scores on the
aptitude test of the GRE, but, either at the request of the department concerned
or on his own volition, the applicant is encouraged to submit in addition the
score on one or more advanced subject matter tests of the GRE. The scores
on all tests taken will be weighed in regard to admission.
The GRE is given six times a year-October, December, January, February,
April, and July-at a great many locations in the United States, including
Gainesville, Florida. To determine exact dates and the most convenient
locations, students should write to the Educational Testing Service, Princeton,
New Jersey 08540. Applications are required several weeks prior to the
examination, and scores are received about a month after the examination.
Hence, it is necessary to apply for the GRE in early September for admission
in January, in early January for admission in March, and in early March for
admission in September. Other examinations are given in early February and
early July, but the ones listed above are correlated with admissions deadlines.
POSTPONEMENT OF THE GRE.-If a student applies for admission too
late to take the GRE before his expected date of entry, particularly for a
summer session, he may apply for admission to the Graduate School with
postponement of the GRE and submit his score on the Miller Analogies Test
to be used as a partial basis for deciding whether tentative admission may be
granted. It should be noted, however, that the Miller Analogies Test is not a
substitute for the GRE. In cases where the GRE has been postponed it must
be taken with satisfactory results before a second registration will be per-
mitted.
THE MILLER ANALOGIES TEST is given at about 250 colleges and uni-
versities throughout the country, and is administered by the University Counsel-
ing Center, Winston W. Little Hall, Room 311, throughout the calendar year
at 3:00 P.M. on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. During the week prior
to the first day of classes the test will also be offered at 10:00 A.M. on Monday
and 3:00 P.M. on Tuesday and Friday. Special appointments can be made by








8 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
contacting the Counseling Center. The cost of the test, $3.00, should be paid
to Student Accounts, the Hub, and the receipt should be presented at the time
of testing.
Test scores should be presented to the Dean of the Graduate School. No
student can be considered for postponement of the GRE until after his applica-
tion for admission is complete and all his credentials have been received in the
Office of the Registrar.
ADMISSION TEST FOR GRADUATE STUDY IN BuSINESS.-Students applying
for admission to the Graduate School who wish to pursue degrees in the
College of Business Administration may submit satisfactory scores on the Ad-
mission Test for Graduate Study in Business (ATGSB) as a substitute for the
required scores on the Aptitude portion of the Graduate Record Examination.
The ATGSB is given five times a year-November, February, April, July,
and August-at many locations in the United States, including Gainesville,
Florida. To determine exact dates and the most convenient locations, students
should write to the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey 08540.

TRIAL PROGRAMS
The Graduate School approves two types of trial programs under the
fifth-year undergraduate registration for applicants whose admission for grad-
uate study is in doubt. These programs are arranged by the major department
when the student has been referred to it for this purpose by the Registrar.
Trial programs are reserved strictly for genuinely problematical or border-
line cases.
TYPE I (partly transferable): a program of about 15 quarter credits con-
sisting of advanced undergraduate courses and no more than 5 credits of
graduate courses. Upon completion of the program, with an average of B or
better, appropriate credits may be transferred to the student's graduate
record, provided that this transfer is approved by his major department, his
college, and the Graduate School, and that all other requirements for admis-
sion to the Graduate School have been met.
Programs of Type I are used where a student's previous grade record or
GRE scores are on the borderline of acceptability.
TYPE II (nontransferable): a program of 15 or more credits of under-
graduate work, none of which may be transferred to the student's graduate
record.
Programs of Type II are used (1) to validate undergraduate records from
nonaccredited and unevaluated colleges; (2) in cases where the quantity or
quality of the student's preparation cannot be determined with sufficient cer-
tainty for judging admission; (3) to repair extensive deficiencies in undergrad-
uate programs which do not meet the prerequisites for graduate study set
by the student's proposed major department (minor deficiencies of less than
15 credits and change of field requirements covered by the Graduate Catalog
may be handled on a non-credit basis as part of the graduate program for
students who meet admissions standards).







ADMISSION / 9
If the trial program of either type is completed with an average grade of B
or better and other admission requirements have been met, the student will,
upon recommendation of his major department and college, be given unquali-
fied admission to the Graduate School. To secure this change of status, the
student should apply through his department chairman and college dean to the
Registrar. Students who fail to achieve a B average in their trial programs will
be terminated.
All trial programs must be formally approved by the major department
and college and filed with the Registrar and the Graduate School in order
that there may be no question in any office concerning the termination of
the program or of the courses to be used in calculating the grade average.


ADMISSION TO A SECOND GRADUATE PROGRAM
A student who has completed a degree program in the Graduate School
may not undertake an additional degree program without the approval of the
chairman of the department in which he proposes to do his major work. GRE
scores must be submitted by the student at the time he proposes an additional
degree program, even though they were not required at the time he started his
previous degree work. It is particularly important that the qualifications of the
student be carefully weighed before he is permitted to undertake work for the
doctor's degree.


UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN GRADUATE COURSES
An undergraduate student at the University of Florida may enroll in 600-
level courses if he has senior standing and an upper-division grade-point
average of at least 2.8. His total registration, during any term in which he is
enrolled in a graduate course, may not exceed 16 credits. If a graduate course
taken under this provision is to be applied toward a graduate degree at the
University of Florida, the student must obtain the approval of his college
dean and the Dean of the Graduate School prior to registering for the course.
Undergraduate students enrolled in the three-year master's degree program
may register in graduate courses after obtaining the approval of the program
advisory committee and the Assistant Dean of the Graduate School in charge
of the program.


ADMISSION OF FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE STUDENTS
Members of the faculty of the University of Florida with a rank of assistant
professor or above (or equivalents), except county agents in the Agricultural
Extension Service, may not receive a graduate degree from this institution.
They may, however, register for work in the Graduate School and apply the
credit earned to graduate degrees to be conferred by other institutions.

GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY
It is the responsibility of the student to inform himself concerning, and to
observe, all regulations and procedures required by the program he is pursuing.
In no case will a regulation be waived or an exception granted because a
student pleads ignorance of the regulation or asserts that he was not informed
of it by his adviser or other authority. The student should make himself
especially familiar with (1) this section of the Catalog, (2) the section pre-
senting the requirements for the degree he plans to take, and (3) the offerings
and requirements of his major department.
CONSULTATION WITH COLLEGE AND DEPARTMENT.-After the student
has been admitted to the Graduate School, but before his first registration, he
should consult the college and department in which he will do his work con-
cerning course requirements, deficiencies if any, the planning of a program,
special regulations, etc. Departments may have degree requirements that are
not listed in this Catalog. All registrations require the signature of the dean
of the college (or his representative) in which the degree is to be awarded.

LOADS
The University of Florida adopted, beginning in September of 1967, a
quarter system of operation consisting of four 10-week periods of instruction
and examination. Class schedules have been revised so that a credit under the
quarter system is equal to 2/3 of a semester credit.
MAXIMUM REGISTRATION.-The maximum graduate registration sug-
gested for any quarter is 15 credits. Where 4- or 5-credit courses or 1-credit
seminars are included in registration, a 17-credit load is acceptable. Part-time
employment of any kind, either on or off campus, reduces the maximum
study load as indicated by the following table:

Maximum
Fraction Hours Range of Maximum Possible Total
of Time Per Week Course and Residence 697-698 Maximum

full time
(on campus) 40 0 6* % quarter 0-6 6
full time
(in absentia) 40 0 3 % quarter 0-0 3
*Including registration in one course only plus thesis research.
MINIMUM REGISTRATION.-Holders of fellowships or assistantships and
part-time interim instructors who are working for a graduate degree must








GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 11


register for graduate study programs commensurate with the study time per-
mitted by their awards, and must pay full fees.
The minimum registration for students enrolled for 699 or 799 only is 3
credit hours; this minimum applies to both resident and nonresident students.
Registration of one or two credit hours in 699 or 799 is acceptable as a part
of a more extensive program.
VETERANS' CERTIFICATION.---Students who are applying for assistance
under the Veterans' Readjustment Benefits Act of 1966 (Public Law 89-358),
and whose applications are otherwise acceptable to the Veterans Administra-
tion, will automatically be certified by the Registrar as follows:
Quarter Registration
Certification
full 14 or more credits
% 10-13 credits
1/2 7- 9 credits
fees only 6 credits
Students who desire higher certification must submit through the Graduate
School office the form "Certification of Study Load." Appropriate allowance
in "equivalent credits" may be made on this form for preparation for language
examinations or qualifying examinations, or for other studies specifically re-
quired by the student's supervisory committee. Where the supervisory com-
mittee classifies the student's employment as research and as a contribution to
his approved educational program, additional certification will normally be
approved. Certification will be on the basis of the following proportion:
Certification Minimum Maximum
Study Load Employment
full 12 credits 15 hrs. per week (1/% time)
% 9 credits 20 hrs. per week (1/2 time)
2 7 credits 30 hrs. per week (% time)
fees only 1 credit full-time employee
HOUSING CERTIFICATION.-The University Housing Office requires the "Cer-
tification of Study Load" form for students with less than a full-time load
(as defined by their college or school).

RESIDENCE
Residence at the University of Florida is determined on a quarter basis.
The University of Florida will grant residence credit of three quarters for full-
time registration for an academic year of work done at another institution.
Specific residence requirements for doctoral degrees will be found in the
section dealing with the Ph.D. degree.

COURSES AND CREDITS
Courses numbered 500-599 are for fifth-year or other advanced under-
graduate programs. Regulations as to the use of these courses in graduate








12 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
programs, grading, and minimum class size will be the same as for courses
in the 400 category. Courses numbered 600 and above are limited to graduate
students. Courses numbered 700 and above are graduate courses primarily for
advanced graduate students.
Undergraduate courses numbered 300 and above are acceptable for
minor credit when taken as a part of an approved graduate program. Courses
bearing numbers below 600 may not be used for graduate major credit unless
they have been approved for this purpose by the Graduate Council. In any
case, at least 50 per cent of the minimum course work for any master's degree
must be in courses numbered 600 or above.
Registration in the course numbered 699, Master's Research, may be from
0 to 15 credits, and in the course numbered 799, Doctoral Research, may be
from 1 to 15 credits in one quarter. The total registration in 699 is limited to
30 credits. Advisers should assign to registration in these courses the number
of credits appropriate to the planned work in research. Registration for zero
credit should be assigned only in exceptional situations, since the registration
should normally reflect the proposed program of research. On the assign-
ment of credit for research which is a part of a student's employment, as
well as a contribution to his thesis or dissertation, see the section on Residence
for the Ph.D. degree.
A complete list of approved graduate courses appears in the section of this
Catalog entitled Departmental Courses. Departments reserve the right to de-
cide which of these graduate courses shall be given in any quarter. The pub-
lished Schedule of Courses does not always include all graduate courses offered;
the departments, therefore, should be consulted concerning available courses.
CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK.-No courses may be taken
for graduate credit by correspondence. No extension courses may be used for
graduate credit except in programs for the M.Ag., M.Ed., M.A.E., M.P.H.,
and Ed.S. For regulations governing the use of such courses in the degree
programs named, see below, under requirements for specific degrees, the limits
on off-campus work. Extension work taken at another institution (except
through the Board of Regents Office for Continuing Education) may not be
transferred to the University of Florida for graduate credit.
STATE CENTERS FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION.-Course work is available
in the graduate residence centers established in the state. Degree programs
to which residence center work may be applied are Master of Agriculture,
Master of Education, Master of Engineering, Master of Business Administra-
tion, and Master of Physical Education and Health. The amount of credit
acceptable for transfer to a degree program varies according to the degree
sought. For regulations governing the use of residence center work in the
degree programs named, see below, under requirements for specific degrees.
GRADES
Passing grades for graduate students are A, B, and C. Grades of C in
courses below 600 level are acceptable for credit toward graduate degrees
only if the total program meets the B-average requirement. C grades in 600-








GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 13
and 700-level courses count toward a graduate degree only if an equal number
of credits in courses numbered 600 or above have been earned with a grade
of A.
Admission to candidacy for a graduate degree and the award of such a
degree depend (among other requirements) upon maintenance of an average
grade of B for all work attempted in the major and minor fields. Any grade
of I (incomplete) in the fields of the major and minor (or minors) must
be removed by completing all required work, unless a grade-point average of
3.0 is maintained, including incomplete courses. Grades in courses numbered
699 and 799 are not considered in calculating these averages.
Grades of S and U are the only grades that can be awarded to students
registered in courses numbered 697 (Supervised Research), 698 (Supervised
Teaching); 699 (Master's Research), 799 (Doctoral Research); and FH 602,
FH 603, GN 602 and GN 603 (special language courses for graduate stu-
dents).

UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP
Any graduate student may be denied further registration in the Univer-
sity or in his graduate major if his progress toward the completion of his
planned program becomes unsatisfactory. Unsatisfactory progress has been
defined by the Graduate Council as failure to maintain an accumulative
grade average of B in all work attempted in the Graduate School.

CHANGE OF MAJOR
Graduate students already admitted for work in one department who wish
to transfer to another department within the same college, or students who
wish to change from one college to another, must make formal application
through the Office of the Registrar.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE EXAMINATIONS
In those degree programs where a foreign language examination is re-
quired, the following principles and procedures apply:
Each candidate, at the time of applying for a functional knowledge ex-
amination, must present a certificate of admission to the Department of For-
eign Languages. This certificate must bear the signature of his supervisory
chairman or departmental adviser and must state that he is believed to be
prepared for the examination.
If he fails to pass a foreign language reading knowledge examination
or a functional knowledge examination, the student must present to the
Graduate School, through his supervisory committee chairman, acceptable
evidence that he has made a serious attempt to prepare himself for
re-examination. If the evidence is acceptable, the student will be given a certifi-
cate of admission to a second examination.
Those students wishing to be certified as proficient in a reading knowledge
of French, German, Russian, or Spanish will take the Graduate School For-








14 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
eign Language Tests administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS)
and given five times a year on the University of Florida campus. Since the
ETS examinations are nationally administered, the Graduate School will ac-
cept scores from the examinations taken at any other authorized location in
the United States.
Beginning with the November 1, 1969, examination, all candidates will
submit their applications and fees directly to ETS, Princeton, New Jersey.
The fee for each administration of an examination is $10.
Each of the ETS examinations requires 80 minutes and consists of two
separately timed parts. Designed to gauge mastery of the basic vocabulary
and structure of the languages, Section I contains 40 multiple-choice ques-
tions cast in the foreign language of the test and requires 40 minutes of
working time. Section II of the test consists of four alternate parts, each a
sample of the literature of one of the following broad fields: biological sciences,
humanities, physical sciences, or social sciences. The student selects one of the
four fields and answers the questions in English to reveal his understanding
of the passage. No dictionaries are allowed. Foreign language examinations
other than those covered by the ETS will be given by the Foreign Language
Department. Information may be obtained at the office of the Graduate
School. For fee payment, admission ticket, and testing dates, see the University
Calendar.

PROCEDURE FOR FINAL QUARTER
It is essential that the student inform himself concerning deadline dates
as set forth in the University Calendar and in the announcements issued by
the Dean of the Graduate School and by the officials of the student's college,
school, or department. Regular issues of Deadline Dates are available each
quarter.
When a student registers for his last term, he will receive notice of fees
due to cover cost of diploma and hood. He must take this notice to Student
Accounts, the Hub, for payment by the deadline specified in the University
Calendar.
When his thesis is ready to be put in final form he should get instruc-
tions from the office of the Dean of the Graduate School.
A student must be registered in the University for the term in which his
final examination is given and at the time he receives a degree. If, however,
a student has completed all requirements for his degree, including courses,
residence, thesis or dissertation, and all examinations, at the time of registration
for the term in which his degree is to be awarded, the Graduate Council will
consider a petition to waive this regulation.

ATTENDANCE AT COMMENCEMENT
Only one commencement ceremony is scheduled annually. Graduates who
are to receive advanced degrees are urged to attend Commencement in order








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 15
to accept personally the honor indicated by the appropriate hood. The student
must arrange through the University Bookstore for proper academic costume
to be worn at Commencement.
Diplomas will be given at the end of each quarter, and hoods will be
mailed immediately after Commencement to graduates who were unable to
attend.



REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES

GENERAL REGULATIONS
COURSE REQUIREMENTS.-At least 50 per cent of the minimum course
requirement for all master's degrees must be 600 level or above.
RESIDENCE.-For any master's degree the student in residence must spend
at least three full-time quarters, or equivalent, as a graduate student at the
University of Florida.
Nonresident county agents in the Agricultural Extension Service may use
three three-week summer sessions for the purpose of satisfying the residence
requirements for the degrees Master of Agriculture or Master of Science in
Agriculture, but only if they have also spent one quarter in full-time resident
graduate study on the campus at the University of Florida.
COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION.-A comprehensive examination, oral,
written, or both, must be passed by the candidate. (For the M.Ed.
degree see below for special requirement.) This examination will cover at least
the candidate's field of concentration, and in no case may it be scheduled earlier
than six months before the degree is to be conferred.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-The student should apply for admission to
candidacy through his department when approximately half of the required
course work is completed and not later than two quarters prior to the date
of completion of requirements for the degree. The Graduate Council reserves
the right to deny degrees to persons who have failed to comply with this
regulation at the proper time. Admission to candidacy is not automatic. It
requires a formal application distinct from registration. The student must
have a B average for all graduate work completed in order to be admitted
to candidacy.
TRANSFER OF CREDITS.-Courses of full graduate level to the extent of
9 quarter credits earned with an A or a B may be transferred from an
institution approved for this purpose by the Graduate School. Acceptance
of transfer credit requires approval of the student's supervisory committee
and the Graduate Council. Nonresident or extension work taken at another
institution (with the exception of work taken through the Board of Regents
Office for Continuing Education) may not be transferred to the University
of Florida for graduate credit.
TIME LIMITATION.-All work for the master's degree must be completed
within seven years from the time of first registration.








16 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
MASTER'S DEGREES WITHOUT THESIS

MASTER OF AGRICULTURE
The degree of Master of Agriculture is designed for those students who
wish additional training before entering business occupations or professions,
rather than for those interested primarily in research. The basic requirements,
including those for admission, residence, supervisory committee, plan of study,
and admission to candidacy, are the same as those outlined for the Master
of Science in Agriculture degree, but the work requirements conform to the
specific objectives of the Master of Agriculture degree.
WORK REQUIRED.-A minimum of 50 credits of course work is required,
of which at least 25 quarter credits shall be at the 600 level or above. If
a departmental major is claimed, 18 credits must be in the major depart-
ment, and consist of courses strictly for graduates (600 level) or under-
graduate courses (500 level) approved by the Graduate Council for grad-
uate major credit. Each student's program is designed to take into account
the qualifications and needs of the individual and is subject to the approval
of the supervisory committee. A thesis is not required, but the student must
submit reports, term papers, and records of work accomplished. A compre-
hensive written qualifying examination, given by the supervisory committee,
is required one quarter prior to graduation. Failure to qualify in this exam-
ination will require either the student's elimination from the program or addi-
tional course work. A final oral examination by the supervisory committee,
covering the candidate's whole field of study, is required.
LIMITS ON OFF-CAMPUS WoRK.-Credit for courses taken through the
State Centers for Continuing Education as applied to the degree of Master
of Agriculture is limited to 25 credits. Credit in extension courses (limited to
9 credits) from the University of Florida and Florida State University and
credit transferred from another accredited institution reduce proportionately
the credit accepted from the graduate residence centers.
For further details, inquire of the Dean of the College of Agriculture.

MASTER OF ARTS AND MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TEACHING
These degrees are designed for graduate students majoring in departments
of the various colleges of the University who intend to teach in junior or
four-year colleges. Requirements for admission are the same as those for the
regular M.A. and M.S. degrees in the various colleges, and programs lead-
ing to the M.A.T. and the M.S.T. may, with proper approval, be incor-
porated into programs leading to the Ph.D.
The requirements for the degrees are as follows:
1. A reading knowledge of one foreign language.
2. Satisfactory completion of at least 54 credits of work while registered
as a graduate student; at least 50 per cent of these credits must be
600 level or above, with work distributed as follows:








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREE / 17
a. At least 27 credits in the major and 9 credits in a minor.
b. Nine credits in a departmental internship in teaching. Three years of
successful teaching experience may be substituted for the internship
requirement.
c. At least three courses, which may be used as the minor, in educa-
tional psychology, sociology (education or community) and curricu-
lum dealing with the junior college. If any or all of these courses
have been satisfactorily completed before the program is begun, the
credits thus made available may be used for further work in the
major, the minor, or in education.
3. At the completion of this degree, the student, for certification pur-
poses, must present from his undergraduate and graduate degree pro-
grams no fewer than 54 quarter credits in his major field.
4. A final comprehensive examination, either oral or written or both, must
be passed by the candidate. This examination will cover the candidate's
field of concentration and his minor.

MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
The requirements for the Master of Business Administration degree have
been designed to give the student broad general preparation for managerial
work, with emphasis upon developing his capacities and skills for business
decision-making. A limited amount of specialization in one field is also re-
quired.
This degree is awarded upon the completion of a foundation program of
8 courses and a graduate program of 51 credits. The foundation program
may be satisfied in whole or in part by appropriate undergraduate courses.
A student having an undergraduate degree in business administration will
normally need only 51 credits for the degree. He can, therefore, complete the
requirements for the degree in a calendar year.
FOUNDATION PROGRAM.-The foundation program must include a mini-
mum of 8 courses as follows:
Economic Principles 2 courses
Accounting 1 course
Quantitative Methods/Statistics 1 course
Business Law 1 course
Business Finance 1 course
Management 1 course
Marketing 1 course
(The accounting requirement may be met with ATG 510-Survey of Ac-
counting-(5 credits) or equivalent. If the student presents the usual two-
term introductory accounting course, the foundation program will total a mini-
mum of 9 courses.)
THE GRADUATE PROGRAM.-Each candidate for the M.B.A. will take the
following courses:








18 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
BS 679-Business Policy 4 credits
BS 690-Business Research and Reports 2 credits
BS 691-Business Research and Reports 2 credits
ES 615-Economics of Business Decisions 5 credits
ES 616-Economic Environment of Business 4 credits
The following courses are required of each candidate unless waived be-
cause of adequate course work (graduate or undergraduate) taken in the same
area:
BS 610-Managerial Accounting 4 credits
BS 664-Managerial Statistics 4 credits
BS 671-Human Relations in Business 4 credits
MGT 570-Production Management Problems 5 credits

A candidate whose undergraduate work in quantitative methods does not
meet the level of competence necessary for effective work in some of the
required courses will be required to remedy this deficiency. At least 5 credits
taken for this purpose may be counted for graduate credit.
CONCENTRATION.-Each candidate will select one field of concentration
from the following: Accounting, Finance, Foreign Trade, Health and Hos-
pital Administration, Insurance, Management, Marketing, Quantitative Analysis
for Business, Real Estate and Urban Land Studies, and Transportation.
In all areas except Health and Hospital Administration, the concentration
consists of a minimum of 18 credits in approved courses. Of these 18 credits,
at least 9 must be completed as a part of the graduate program and must be
in courses approved for graduate major credit. When feasible at least
one 4-credit course on the 600 level should be included in the concentration. A
maximum of 9 credits in the concentration may have been completed for
undergraduate credit or as a part of the foundation program. The required
basic courses in accounting may not be used as a part of the concentration in
accounting. The required basic courses in business finance, marketing, and
production management may be used as a part of the concentration in each
of these fields.
ELECTIVEs.-Any elective courses will be selected from approved courses
offered by the College of Business Administration.
CONCENTRATION IN HEALTH AND HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATION.-The
Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Health and
Hospital Administration is offered by the College of Business Administration.
The course work in the area of concentration is offered by the Colleges of
Health Related Professions, Law, and Engineering.
In addition to meeting the usual requirements for admission to the Grad-
uate School, students who expect to enroll in this concentration must com-
municate directly with the Chairman of the Program in Health and Hospital
Administration, who will arrange for a personal interview with the applicant.
Since 22 credits are required for this concentration, certain courses normally
required may be waived when necessary to allow the student to complete the
graduate program with 51 credits. Foundation course requirements are the








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 19
same for this concentration as for all others. The following courses are re-
quired:
HA 600-Perspectives in Health 4 credits
HA 601-Hospital Organization, the
Community and Patient Care 3 credits
HA 602-Financial Administration of Health
and Hospital Care 3 credits
HA 610--Seminar in Health and Hospital
Administration 4 credits
HA 611-Seminar in Health and Hospital
Administration 2 credits
ISE 635-Health Systems Analysis 1 4 credits
LW 686-Hospital and Health Law Seminar 2 credits

In addition to the courses listed above, a research and practicum period
of one quarter and an administrative residency of two quarters are required
of all candidates in this concentration.
COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION.-In the latter part of the term in which
the candidate expects to complete his course work, he will take his final
comprehensive written and oral examination covering his entire program.
Examinations for all M.B.A. degrees, including the Health and Hospital Ad-
ministration concentration, are administered by an examining committee ap-
pointed from the graduate faculty of the College of Business Administration.

MASTER OF EDUCATION
PURPOSE.-This degree is designed to meet the need for professional per-
sonnel to serve the variety of functions required in established and emerging
educational activities of modern society.
DESCRIPTION.-The minimum requirement for the M.Ed. degree is 50
credits in courses numbered 300 and above, with at least 25 of these credits
at or above the 600 level.
CREDIT REQUIRED IN EDUCATION COURSES.-Either (1) a minimum of
32 credits in the M.Ed. program, of which at least 24 are at or above the 600
level; or (2) a total of 48 credits in the undergraduate and graduate program,
but in no case fewer than 16 credits at or above the 600 level in the M.Ed.
program.
CREDIT REQUIRED IN COURSES OUTSIDE EDUCATION.-Nine credits for
students in the departments of Administration and Supervision, Elementary
Education and Personnel Services; 25 credits for students in Secondary
Education and Foundations of Education; only 9 credits, however, are
required for those entering with deficiencies in Education.
All M.Ed. programs include a core of required courses consisting of at least
one course from two of the following four areas: General Curriculum; Psycho-
logical Foundations of Education; Social, Philosophical, Historical or Com-
parative Foundations of Education; Measurement or Statistics.








20 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


Each student is required to submit a plan of study which shows acceptable
balance and direction. The planned program must be approved by the student's
counselor, the chairman of the student's area of specialization in Education,
and the Office of Graduate Studies in Education during the first term of work
or before. After the program has been developed, any change must be re-
quested in writing and similarly approved.
TRANSFER OF CREDITS.-If recommended in advance by the graduate
committee and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School, a student may
be permitted to study in other institutions to the extent of (but not to exceed)
9 credits. No graduate credits earned prior to admission to the University
may be transferred without special recommendation of the graduate committee
and the approval of the Graduate Council. No more than 9 credits may be
thus transferred.
STATE CENTERS FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION.-Students may study for
the Master of Education degree in State Centers for Continuing Education
provided they have been fully admitted to the Graduate School of the University
of Florida (7 ED classification), or if they are in the process of applying for
admission. If admitted during the quarter in which they are enrolled in a course,
the credit received may apply toward the degree provided it is appropriate to a
planned program. Degree credits earned in a center are subject to the limit
on off-campus work given below.
Students not working toward a degree in the University System may also
register for courses at these centers provided they have been admitted to the
University of Florida for post-baccalaureate study (6 ED classification), or
are in the process of applying for admission. Except for students holding a
master's degree, enrollment in this status is limited to two courses.
LIMITS ON OFF-CAMPUS WORK.-The University limits off-campus work
taken in extension, in other institutions, and in the Florida State Centers for
Continuing Education. The limits imposed are as follows: (1) extension credit-
9 credits; (2) residence credit transferred from another accredited institution-
9 credits; (3) residence credit earned in a Florida State Center for Continuing
Education-25 credits. Any credits offered from (1) or (2) above reduce by
the same amount the credit accepted from (3). Acceptance of credit toward
the M.Ed. degree from any of these sources is contingent upon the appro-
priateness of the work in the program planned by the student and his counselor.
ON-CAMPUS RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS.-25 credits must be taken on
the Gainesville campus, including at least one quarter in full-time residence.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to candidacy for the Master of
Education degree is recommended to the Graduate Council by the Graduate
Committee of the College of Education on the basis of an evaluation of the
applicant at the end of from 16 to 25 credits of graduate work at the Uni-
versity of Florida. The student is responsible for filing the application no later
than the quarter prior to that in which he plans to graduate.
This evaluation is based in part on (1) the student's academic record,
(2) the student's GRE scores, (3) evidence of competency in the use (oral
and written) of the English language, (4) evaluation of personal qualities and








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 21
promise of professional attainment by persons to whom the applicant's record
is known, (5) the student's experience record, and (6) other appropriate in-
formation.
This process is administered through the Office of Graduate Studies in Edu-
cation for the graduate committee which may recommend supplementary oral
and/or written examinations for students whose admission to candidacy is in
doubt.
The student's remaining program of study may be revised if needed after
the Admission to Candidacy Examination. On approval of the graduate com-
mittee, the candidate will be recommended for the degree upon the satisfactory
completion of the designated course work.
The candidate must have completed at least one year of teaching (or the
equivalent) prior to taking the last 9 credits of work, or his record must show
satisfactory completion of an internship program or a minimum of 8 credits
of student teaching.
THE GRADUATE COMMITTEE OF THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION.-A special
counselor is appointed for each student in the Master of Education program.
His work is under general supervision of the Graduate Committee of the
College of Education.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING
The Master of Engineering degree is designed for those students whose
needs are better fulfilled by additional course work rather than the prepara-
tion of a thesis. Requirements for admission are the same as those for the
regular M.S.E. degree in the College of Engineering.
WORK REQUIRED.-A minimum of 50 credits of course work is required,
with at least 27 credits in the student's major field. The minor field may be
divided in several ways: one 9-credit minor, two 9-credit minors, or one 18-
credit minor. In addition, a multidisciplinary minor in departments other than
the major may be authorized by the supervisory committee or program
adviser. Major courses must be graduate level (numbered 600 and above)
or courses approved for graduate major credit. Courses numbered 300 and
above may be taken for the minor. At least 50 per cent of the required
50 credits must be in courses numbered 600 and above.
DEGREE CREDIT.-In order to qualify for course work toward the Master
of Engineering degree, a student must first be admitted to the Graduate School
at the University of Florida. The amount of course work toward this degree
that may be taken at an off-campus center will depend upon the student's
individual program and the courses provided through the center.
The composition of the supervisory committee for those students in resi-
dence at the Gainesville campus of the University of Florida is the same as
that shown under Master's Degree with Thesis.
At the option of the department involved, a student whose program does
not include 27 credits of study taken on the Gainesville campus may be super-
vised by a single program adviser recommended by the Dean of the College
of Engineering and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School.








22 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
EXAMINATIONS.-Each student must pass a comprehensive written
and/or oral final examination at the completion of his course work. For the
student whose program includes 27 credits of study taken on the Gaines-
ville campus, this examination will be administered by the supervisory com-
mittee.
Other candidates must take a comprehensive written examination admin-
istered on the University of Florida campus by an examining committee rec-
ommended by the Dean of the College of Engineering and appointed by the
Dean of the Graduate School. At least one member of the examining com-
mittee must be either the student's program adviser or a member of his
supervisory committee. Another member must be chosen from outside the
major department to represent the student's minor.

MASTER OF NURSING
The program leading to the degree Master of Nursing is designed to give
students the basic knowledge and professional skills essential to the three
areas of nursing activity: teaching, research, and practice. The diversity of
roles that the nurse performs in these three areas necessitates a program that
requires preparation in clinical, research, and functional activities. Two basic
qualifications necessary for completion of the program are: (1) academic
ability to perform satisfactorily in the course requirements; (2) ability to
work effectively as a professional nursing practitioner. Traineeship grants and
graduate assistantships for selected students are available. See Financial Aid-
Nursing.
WORK REQUIRED.-The minimum requirement of 50 credits is distributed
in the following areas: 8 credits in general nursing; 4 credits in research;
8 credits in the functional area; 9 credits of electives; and at least 16 credits
in the clinical specialty areas, although additional credits may be required
depending on the clinical area of choice. A minimum of 8 credits are to be
taken outside the College of Nursing. At least 50 per cent of the minimum
course requirements must be in courses numbered 600 and above. There is no
thesis or foreign language requirement.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to this program is not a guarantee
that the student will be admitted to candidacy for the degree. When a student
has completed 18 to 24 credits of graduate work at the University of Florida,
he is required to apply for admission to candidacy for the degree, using the
forms provided by the office of the Dean of the Graduate School. Admission
to candidacy for the Master of Nursing degree will be recommended to the
Graduate Council by the graduate committee of the College of Nursing on
the basis of a review of the student's work and any other appropriate informa-
tion to determine his eligibility to proceed further toward the degree program.
FINAL EXAMINATION.-Each student must pass a comprehensive written
and/or oral final examination during the final quarter of study. The exami-
nation will be administered by a committee of three with a member of the
graduate faculty of the College of Nursing as chairman. The examinations)
will be confined largely to the student's major field of study.








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 23


MASTER OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH
WORK REQUIRED.-A minimum of 51 credits of course work is required,
of which at least 50 per cent must be graduate-level courses in physical educa-
tion. Of the remaining 50 per cent, at least three courses must be taken outside
the College of Physical Education and Health. The major for the degree is
physical education.
All degree candidates must complete Florida teaching certification require-
ments in physical education by the conclusion of the master's degree program.
If not completed prior to admission to graduate study, certification require-
ments must be met as part of and/or in addition to degree requirements.
OFF-CAMPUS WORK.-The regulations governing the use of off-campus
work are the same as those for the Master of Education degree.
SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE.-A committee of five members of the faculty of
the College of Physical Education and Health, with the dean of the college,
or some person designated by him, serving as chairman and the Dean of the
Graduate School as an ex officio member, will supervise the work of students
registered in this program, subject to the approval of the Graduate Council.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to this program is not a guarantee
that the student will be admitted to candidacy for the degree. The student
will be required to pass a written and/or oral examination in addition to
being recommended by the supervisory committee for admission to candidacy.
The student should normally apply for admission to candidacy at approximately
the mid-point of his total program, but not later than two quarters before
his expected date of graduation.
FINAL EXAMINATION.-A thesis is not required, but the candidate must
pass a final examination at the close of his course work. This written and/or
oral examination will be administered by the supervisory committee and will
be confined largely to the student's major field of study.

MASTER OF REHABILITATION COUNSELING

The interdisciplinary program leading to the degree of Master of Re-
habilitation Counseling is designed to give students basic knowledge and pro-
fessional skills essential to the rehabilitation of physically, mentally, and emo-
tionally handicapped persons. The diversity of activities performed by indi-
viduals who bear the designation of rehabilitation counselor in the various
state, federal, and private agencies, necessitates a program that permits a basic
foundation in counseling and guidance and, at the same time, allows for a
sound preparation in the medical, socio-psychological and vocational implica-
tions of disability. Two basic qualifications are necessary for successful com-
pletion of the program: (1) the academic ability to accomplish the course
requirements with satisfactory performance, and (2) the ability to work ef-
fectively with disabled people in a counseling relationship. Students interested
in counseling the mentally retarded will be encouraged to specialize in this
area through the utilization of certain elective course offerings and through









24 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

the internship stage of their educational program. Traineeship grants for se-
lected students are available. See Financial Aid.
WORK REQUIRED.-The minimum requirement is 63 credits, of which 39
represent required work in rehabilitation courses, including an internship.
An additional minimum of 24 credits is selected from designated courses;
i.e., 1 to 3 courses in each of the following areas: (1) statistics and measure-
ment; (2) personality development; and (3) counseling. The selection of the
courses in each of the three areas is made on the basis of meeting the individual
needs of the student and is subject to the approval of a supervisory committee.
At least 50 per cent of the minimum course requirements must be from
courses numbered 600 and above.

26 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
INTERNSHIP IN MENTAL RETARDATION.-Students who are particularly
interested in working with the mentally retarded may take a specialized in-
ternship at the Field Instructional Unit in Mental Retardation at MacDonald
Training Center. Prior to this internship, students may elect to take one or
more of the EDP course sequence in general electives listed above.
POLICY COMMITTEE.-A committee of five members of the faculty repre-
senting the College of Health Related Professions, Department of Psychology,
College of Medicine, and College of Education, with the professor in charge
of rehabilitation counseling serving as chairman and the Dean of the Grad-
uate School as an ex officio member, will determine policy, and, in general,
supervise the work of students registered in this program.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to this program is not a guarantee
that the student will be admitted to candidacy for the degree. When a student
has completed 36 credits of graduate work at the University of Florida (but
not less than two quarters before he plans to graduate), he is required to
apply for admission to candidacy for the degree, using the forms provided
by the office of the Dean of the Graduate School. Admission to candidacy
for the Master of Rehabilitation Counseling degree will be recommended
to the Graduate Council by a supervisory committee of the College of Health
Related Professions on the basis of a review of his work, his personal traits,
and other appropriate information to determine his eligibility to proceed
further toward the degree.
DEPARTMENTAL STUDY PROJECT.-A thesis is not required, but the candi-
date must complete an approved departmental study or research project as
part of the degree requirements.
FINAL WRITTEN AND/OR ORAL EXAMINATION.-Upon the satisfactory
completion of all course work including the practicum and internship, each
student must take a final written and/or oral departmental examination be-
fore the degree will be awarded. The primary purpose of this examination is
to determine the student's ability to relate the knowledge, skills and techniques
learned in the academic program to the more practical applications of working
effectively with disabled individuals.

MASTER OF STATISTICS

The basic requirement for admission to the graduate program for the
Master of Statistics degree is an A.B. or B.S. degree from a recognized college
or university. The normal admission requirements will be a B-average under-
graduate record for the upper division studies and satisfactory scores on the
Graduate Record Examination.
WORK REQUIRED.-The minimum registration required for the Master of
Statistics degree is 54 credits, including no less than 30 credits in the major
field. Courses in the degree program will be selected in consultation with the
major adviser and approved by the student's supervisory committee. One 9-
credit minor is required. The work in the major field must be in courses
approved for graduate major credit. For the minor, courses numbered 300








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 27

and above may be taken. At least half the 54 credits in regular course work
must be in courses numbered 600 and above. The student will be required
to pass, as judged by his supervisory committee, a comprehensive written
examination covering the major and minor subjects. In addition, he will be
examined orally on his major subjects.
For further details, inquire Chairman, Department of Statistics, or Dean,
College of Arts and Sciences.

MASTER'S DEGREE WITH THESIS
COURSE REQUIREMENT.-The minimum course work required for the
master's degree with thesis is 45 credits, including no less than 36 credits of
regular course work and up to 9 credits of the research course numbered 699
in all departments.
At least half the required credits of regular course work must be in a single
field of study designated the major. If a minor is chosen, at least 9 credits
of work are required; two 9-credit minors may be taken. Minor work must
be in a department other than the major. In special cases this requirement
may be modified, but only with the written permission of the Dean of the
Graduate School.
The work in the major field must be in courses designed strictly for grad-
uates (numbered 600 and above) or in undergraduate courses designated by
the Graduate Council as available for graduate major credit. For the minor,
courses numbered 300 and above may be taken. At least 18 of the required
36 credits of regular course work must be in courses numbered 600 and above.
Registration in 699 is limited to a total of 30 credits.
THESIS.-All candidates for this degree are required to prepare and pre-
sent a thesis (or equivalent in creative work) acceptable to their supervisory
committees and the Graduate School. The candidate should consult the Grad-
uate School office for instructions concerning the form of the thesis. The
original copy of the bound thesis accompanied by three copies of a brief
abstract must be in the office of the Dean of the Graduate School on or before
the dates specified in the University Calendar. After the thesis is accepted,
two copies will be permanently bound and deposited in the University Library.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS.-(1) The requirement of a reading knowl-
edge of a foreign language is left to the discretion of the student's supervisory
committee or college. When a foreign language is required, the examination
will be conducted by Educational Testing Service or by the Department of
Foreign Languages; if an examination has already been passed at another
institution, it must be validated at the University of Florida by the Department
of Foreign Languages. If the student is majoring in a foreign language, that
language may not be used to satisfy this requirement. The foreign language
requirement must be satisfied before the student is admitted to candidacy.
(2) The ability to use the English language correctly and effectively, as judged
by the supervisory committee, is required of all candidates. Hence this cannot
be substituted for a foreign language requirement.








28 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
SPECIAL SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE.-Upon the recommendation of the
college concerned, a special supervisory committee composed of at least two
members selected from the graduate faculty will be appointed for each
student by the Dean of the Graduate School. The chairman must be a graduate
faculty member approved to direct master's theses. The minor should be
represented by one member of the committee. The supervisory committee
recommended for the master's degree without a designated minor shall include
at least one person outside the department of the major who has been ap-
pointed to the graduate faculty for directing master's theses. The com-
mittee should be appointed as soon as possible after the student has been
admitted to the Graduate School and, in general, not later than the end of the
first quarter of study. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex officio
member of all supervisory committees. The duties of the special supervisory
committee are to advise the student, to check on his qualifications and progress,
to supervise the preparation of the thesis, and to conduct the final examination.
No fewer than three faculty members must be present at the student's final
examination, but only the members of the official supervisory committee are
required to sign the thesis and the report of the final examination.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Attention of students is directed to the fact
that admission to candidacy is not automatic. It requires a formal application
distinct from registration. Applications for admission to candidacy for master's
degrees should be approved by the Graduate School when course work is half
completed and in no case later than two quarters prior to the date for com-
pletion of all requirements for the degree.
The Graduate Council may deny degrees to persons who have failed to
comply with this regulation at the proper time. In order to be admitted to
candidacy, the student must have (1) maintained a B average in registered
course work, (2) passed a foreign language examination and a comprehensive
examination (if these are required in his curriculum), (3) chosen his thesis
topic, (4) satisfied his supervisory committee, department chairman, and col-
lege dean that he is qualified to become a candidate for his degree. It is the
responsibility of his supervisory committee at this time to make such investi-
gation as is necessary to determine his eligibility.
FINAL EXAMINATION.- When all the student's course work is completed,
or practically so, and the thesis is in final form, his supervisory committee
is required to examine him orally and/or in writing on (1) his thesis, (2) his
major subjects, (3) his minor or minors, and (4) matters of a general nature
pertaining to his field of study. A written announcement of the examination
must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School. Using the form provided
for the purpose the committee shall report in writing to the Dean of the
Graduate School not later than one week before the time for conferring of
the degree whether all work has been completed in a satisfactory manner and
whether on the basis of the final examination the student is recommended
for his degree. This examination may not be scheduled earlier than six
months before the degree is to be conferred without special approval of
the Graduate Council.








ENGINEER DEGREE / 29

MASTER OF FINE ARTS
The degree of Master of Fine Arts is designed primarily for those who
wish to prepare themselves as teachers of art in colleges and universities. It is
the highest degree granted in the studio fields of the fine arts. Two years'
residence is normally required for completion of requirements. Specialization
is offered in ceramics, creative photography, drawing, painting, printmaking,
and/or sculpture.
The requirements of the M.F.A. are the same as those for other master's
degrees with thesis except as follows:
1. The minimum registration required is 72 credits, including no fewer
than 63 credits in regular course work and 9 credits in ART 699-Master's
Research.
2. The course work must include ART 500-Methods of Research and
Bibliography (3 credits), a minimum of 9 additional credits in the history and
theory of art, and a minimum of 9 credits in a minor field. The remaining
credits will be advanced studio courses in ceramics, creative photography,
drawing, painting, printmaking, and/or sculpture.

ENGINEER DEGREE
Industry has found that engineers holding either the master's or doctor's
degree contribute significantly in highly sophisticated operational and develop-
mental projects and missions which require engineering teams with an un-
usually high level of technical competence. Many of the projects and prob-
lems require education beyond the master's level, especially for those engi-
neers who received their master's degree several years ago.
For those engineers who need additional technical depth and diversification
in their education beyond the master's degree, the College of Engineering of-
fers the degree of Engineer.
This degree requires a minimum of 45 quarter hours of graduate work
beyond the master's degree and thus falls midway between the master's and
Ph.D. in the amount of work required. No minimum residence requirement is
stipulated. It is not to be considered as a partial requirement toward the
Ph.D. degree. The student's objective after the master's degree should be the
Ph.D. or the Engineer degree.
ADMISSION TO THE PROGRAM.-To be admitted to the program students
must have completed a master's degree in engineering at an accredited
institution approved by the Graduate School of the University of Florida.
The student must apply for admission to the Graduate School if he has not
previously done so. The master's degree is regarded as the essential foundation
for the Engineer degree.
COURSE AND RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS.-A total registration in an ap-
proved program of at least 45 quarter credit hours beyond the master's degree
is required. This minimum requirement must be earned through the University
of Florida. These credits may be completed in any graduate program ad-
ministered by the College of Engineering, either in Gainesville or through
GENESYS.








30 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
The approved program must be completed with an overall grade point
average of 3.0 or higher. The last 45 quarter credit hours must be completed
within five calendar years.
SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE.-Each student admitted to the program will be
advised and counseled by a supervisory committee. The committee consists
of at least three members. At least two members are selected from the major
department and at least one from a supporting department. All committee
members will be members of the graduate faculty. As a desirable addition,
every effort should be made to have a representative from industry on each
supervisory committee.
This committee should be appointed immediately after the student is ad-
mitted to the program. The committee is nominated by the department chair-
man, with the recommendation of the Resident Director as appropriate, ap-
proved by the Dean of Engineering, 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 and should be notified in writing in advance of all
committee meetings.
This committee will inform the student of all regulations pertaining to
the degree and his situation. If a thesis or report is a requirement in the plan
of study then the committee will approve the proposed thesis or report and
the plans for carrying it out. The committee will also conduct the final exami-
nation when the plan of study is completed.
PLAN OF STUDY.-The plan of study will permit from 9 to 15 quarter
credit hours for a thesis. The thesis is not a requirement, but the option rests
with the department involved and the supervisory committee. Each plan of
study is developed on an individual basis for each student.
Thus, there are no specific requirements on the major or minor; each
student is considered as a separate case. The plan of study must be completed
with an overall grade point average of 3.0 or higher.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-The student must apply for admission to
candidacy when he has completed at least 21 credits of his approved plan of
study with an overall grade point average of at least 3.0 and his thesis topic,
where required, has been approved by his supervisory committee.
THEsis.-The thesis should represent performance at a level above that
ordinarily associated with the master's degree. It should clearly be an original
contribution; this may take the form of scientific research, a design project,
or an industrial project approved by the supervisory committee. Work on
the thesis may be conducted in an industrial or government laboratory under
conditions stipulated by the supervisory committee.
FINAL EXAMINATION.-After completion of all work on the plan of study
with an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, the supervisory com-
mittee conducts a final examination of the student. This is a comprehensive
oral and/or written examination, and also involves a defense of the thesis
if included in the program.








THE ADVANCED SCHOOL OF THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION / 31

THE ADVANCED SCHOOL OF THE
COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

The Advanced School of the College of Education offers programs leading
to the degrees Specialist in Education, Doctor of Education, and Doctor of
Philosophy. These programs are available in five areas: Administration and
Supervision, Curriculum and Instruction, Foundations of Education, Per-
sonnel Services, and Special Education. The Specialist in Education degree
is awarded for a two-year program of graduate study. The Doctor of Educa-
tion degree requires writing a doctoral dissertation. Foreign languages are
not required. The Doctor of Philosophy degree in the College of Education
is described under Requirements for the Ph.D.
Programs leading to these degrees are administered through the Office of
Graduate Studies in Education, which carries out the policies of the Graduate
School and the graduate committee of the College of Education.
ADMISSION TO THE ADVANCED SCHOOL IN EDUCATION.-Admission to
the Advanced School will be open only to persons who have:
1. Successfully completed 50 credits of professional course work in educa-
tion. Applicants for admission to the Advanced School of the College of
Education who meet all the requirements except for successfully com-
pleting 50 credits of professional education courses may be given pro-
visional admission, and full admission when they have completed the
required 50 credits.
2. Presented a record of successful professional experience, the appro-
priateness of which will be determined by the instructional department
passing on the applicant's qualifications for admission. In some instances,
departments may admit students with the understanding that further
experience may be required before the student will be recommended
for the degree. Students in the division of Curriculum and Instruction
may take no more than one quarter of work beyond the master's degree
prior to the successful completion of two years of full-time teaching.
Admission to the Advanced School will be based on the following criteria:
1. High scholastic average for previous graduate work (3.5 grade-point
average or above, as computed at the University of Florida, will be
considered evidence of good scholarship).
2. Satisfactory scores on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record Ex-
amination.
3. A personal interview or examination administered by the department or
division in which the student seeks to specialize.
The judgment concerning admission of an individual student will be based
on consideration of his performance in all of these areas by the department
in which he desires to specialize. The department will certify to the admissions
committee that the student has met the criteria for admission to the Advanced
School.
In all cases the record, experience, and personal qualifications of the per








32 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
son applying for admission are subject to the approval of the admissions com-
mittee.
Where possible, students should seek admission to the Advanced School
before enrolling in any courses beyond the master's degree. Where this pro-
cedure is impossible, the student will register in the Graduate School, and,
during the first quarter of his work beyond the master's degree, will apply for
admission to the Advanced School. If the candidate is found to be eligible,
appropriate work taken during that term will be included in the planned pro-
gram.
After completion of the master's degree any student approved by the ad-
missions committee may register for courses, but admission to the Advanced
School must be obtained before work may be counted for degrees or certifi-
cates above the master's level.

SPECIALIST IN EDUCATION
Primary emphasis in an Ed.S. program is placed on the development of
the competencies needed for a specific job. Programs are available in the
various areas of concentration within the departments of Administration and
Supervision, Foundations of Education, and Personnel Services, and the
division of Curriculum and Instruction. The Florida State Department of
Education recognizes this degree for purposes of granting Rank IA certifica-
tion.
To study for this degree, the student must apply for and be admitted to
the Advanced School of the College of Education. The student must also apply
for and be admitted to candidacy for the degree no later than the term prior
to that in which he intends to graduate. All work for the degree must be
completed within seven years of admission to the Advanced School of the
College of Education.
The Ed.S. degree is awarded at the completion of a 100-credit planned
program beyond the bachelor's degree. Within the 100-credit program, the
requirements of a Master of Education degree or its equivalent must be satis-
fied. Within the last 50 hours of the program the following requirements
must be met:
1. 32 credits at the 600 and 700 levels
2. At least 16 credits in professional education courses at the 600 level or
above
3. At least 2 quarters of full-time residence on campus in Gainesville. Of
the last 50 hours no more than 9 quarter hours of appropriate work
from another institution offering a doctor's degree or from a Florida
State Center for Continuing Education may be included.
4. One learning experience designed to unify the program shall be provided
by an internship, a practicum, a project and report, a field experience, a
research study, or other suitable activity as determined by the department

6. Near the end of the program, the student is given a final written and








DOCTOR OF EDUCATION / 33
oral examination by a committee selected by the department chairman.
A thesis is not required.

DOCTOR OF EDUCATION
The Doctor of Education degree is offered in administration and super-
vision, curriculum and instruction, foundations of education, personnel services,
and Special Education. Each doctoral candidate is expected to achieve under-
standing of the broad field of education and competencies in the area in which
he chooses to specialize.
Admission to a program of work leading to the degree of Doctor of
Education requires admission to the Advanced School of the College of Edu-
cation, described previously, as well as admission to the Graduate School.
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 doctor's 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. If one minor
is selected, at least 25 credits of work therein will be required; if two minors
are chosen, one must have at least 18 credits of course work, the other at least
8 credits. Minors may not be taken in any branch of Education.
Courses in physical education approved by the College of Physical Educa-
tion and Health and the Graduate School as subject matter or content courses
may be used in the cognate work or as a minor.
In lieu of a minor or minors, the candidate may present a suitable program
of no fewer than 25 credits of cognate work in at least two or more depart-
ments outside the College of Education. If two fields are included, there
shall be no fewer than 8 credits in either field. If three or more fields are
included, the 8-credit requirement for each field does not apply. This program
must have the approval of the student's supervisory committee. The College
of Education faculty will expect the candidate to be prepared to answer
questions, at the time of his oral examination, in any of the areas chosen.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to candidacy for the degree of
Doctor of Education rests on successful completion of the qualifying examina-
tions and approval of the dissertation topic. Recommendation to the Graduate
School for admission to candidacy is based on the action of the supervisory
committee, subject to the approval of the graduate committee of the College
of Education. The Florida State Department of Education recognizes this
Admission to Candidacy for purposes of granting Rank IA certification.
THE QUALIFYING EXAMINATION.-The applicant is recommended for the
qualifying examination by his supervisory committee after he has completed
sufficient course work.
The examination administered by the graduate committee of the College
of Education 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.








34 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
RE-EXAMINATION.-If the student fails in his qualifying examinations
he will not be given a re-examination unless such an examination is recom-
mended for special reasons by his supervisory committee and approved by
the Graduate Council. At least one quarter of additional preparation is con-
sidered essential before re-examination.
THE SEMINAR.-Each student is required to develop a thesis project to
be considered by a general doctoral seminar in the college. Participants in the
seminar will be faculty members of the college, other advanced students, and
members of the supervisory committee. The student must pass the qualifying
examination before scheduling the seminar.
RESEARCH PREPARATION REQUIREMENT.-Research preparation may vary
for the individual student according to his plans for doctoral research. The
normal minimum requirements are:
1. A basic course in statistics.
2. EDF 664, EDF 760, or EDA 707, and a library usage examination.
3. An appropriate course in measurement, advanced statistics, or research.
However, particularly for students planning quantitative research, a com-
bination of EDF 360, EDF 664 and EDF 764 is recommended. Requests for
substitution of courses taken at other institutions for the research preparation
requirement must be made to the Research Section of the Foundations
Department for written approval before the planned program is submitted.
For information relating to Residence, the Supervisory Committee, Time
Limitation, the Dissertation, Publication of the Dissertation, and the Final
Examination, the student is referred to the material presented under the head-
ing Doctor of Philosophy. These statements are applicable to both degrees.


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS
Doctoral study consists of the independent mastery of a field of knowledge
and the successful prosecution of research. For this reason, doctoral students
act, in large measure, on their own responsibility, and doctoral programs are
more flexible and varied than those leading to lower degrees. The Graduate
Council does not specify just what courses will be required for the Ph.D.
degree, or how many. The basic general requirement is that the program
should be unified in relation to a clear objective and that it should have the
considered approval of the student's entire supervisory committee.
MAJOR.-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to do his major work
in a department specifically approved for the offering of doctoral courses and
the supervision of dissertations. These departments are listed under Graduate
Programs.
MINOR.-With the approval of his supervisory committee, the student may
choose one or more minor fields. Minor work may be completed in any de-
partment, other than the major department, approved for master's or doctor's
degree programs, as listed in this Catalog.








REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 35
If one minor is chosen, the representative of the minor department on the
supervisory committee shall suggest from 18 to 36 credits as preparation
for a qualifying examination. Of course, a part of this background may have
been acquired in the master's program. If two minors are chosen, each must
include at least 12 credits. The satisfaction of the requirement concerning the
minor or minors may be in terms of a written examination conducted by the
minor department or departments and/or through the oral qualifying examina-
tion.
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 before registration beyond 6 credits
of course work applicable to the minor. This procedure is not required for a
departmental minor. The supervisory committee may include a representative
from each subject-matter area included in the minor, or a single representative
can be chosen; each department so involved must indicate its choice.

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES.-Supervisory committees are nominated
by the department chairman, approved by the dean of the college concerned,
and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The committee should be
appointed as soon as possible after the student has begun doctoral work, and
in general no later than the end of his third quarter of equivalent full-time
study. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex officio member of all su-
pervisory committees and should be notified in writing well in advance of all
examinations conducted by such committees.
The duties of the supervisory committee are as follows:
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 concerning these regulations.
(See Student Responsibility.)
2. To meet immediately after appointment to pass on the qualifications
of the student and to discuss and approve a program of study for him.
3. To meet to discuss and approve the proposed dissertation project and
the plans for carrying it out.
4. To conduct the qualifying examination or, in those cases where the
examination is administered by the department, to take part in it. In
either event, no fewer than five faculty members shall be present for the
oral portion of the examination.
5. To meet when the work on the dissertation is at least one-half com-
pleted to review procedure, progress, and expected results, and to make
suggestions for completion.
6. To meet when the dissertation is completed to conduct the final oral
examination and to satisfy itself that the dissertation is a piece of original
research and a contribution to knowledge. No fewer than five faculty








36 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
members shall be present for this examination, but only the members
of the official supervisory committee are required to sign the dissertation.
MEMBERSHIP.-The supervisory committee for a candidate for the doc-
toral degree shall consist of no fewer than three members selected from the
graduate faculty. At least two members will usually be from the college or
department recommending the degree, and at least one member will be drawn
from a different educational discipline. The chairman, and at least one addi-
tional member of the committee will be members of the resident graduate
faculty of the University of Florida who have been approved for the direc-
tion of doctoral dissertations.
If a minor is chosen, the supervisory committee will include at least one
person from outside the discipline of the major for the purpose of represent-
ing the student's minor. In the event that the student elects more than one
minor, each minor area may, at the discretion of the departments concerned,
be represented on the supervisory committee.
When a minor is not designated, the supervisory committee will include at
least one person from outside the discipline of the major, who normally has
been appointed to the graduate faculty for directing doctoral dissertations.
The Graduate Council desires each supervisory committee to function as a
university committee, as contrasted to a departmental committee, with the ob-
jective of bringing university-wide standards to bear upon the various doctoral
degrees.
In unusual cases the doctoral research may require the guidance of a spe-
cialist from an area of study other than that of the chairman of the super-
visory committee. In such cases the department chairman may recommend ap-
pointment of a chairman and a co-chairman, with the latter being a mem-
ber of the graduate faculty, but not necessarily having been approved for the
direction of doctoral dissertations. A co-chairman may also be appointed for
the purpose of serving during a planned absence of the chairman; in this case
both the chairman and the co-chairman shall have been appointed to the grad-
uate faculty for the purpose of directing doctoral dissertations.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS
LANGUAGE READING EXAMINATIONS.-(1) Except as noted below a read-
ing knowledge of two languages other than English is required. The primary
language must be French, German, Russian, or Spanish, the choice to be made
by the supervisory committee on the basis of the usefulness of the language
in the student's field of research.
(2) The secondary language, as approved by the supervisory committee,
may be from a list of languages adopted by the Graduate Council, in which
reading knowledge examinations are administered by the Department of For-
eign Languages. Under this provision, however, both languages may not be
Romance.
If a student is majoring in a foreign language he may not use that language
to satisfy the foreign language requirement.








REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 37
FUNCTIONAL EXAMINATION IN LANGUAGE.-A doctoral student, with
the approval of his supervisory committee, shall have the privilege of taking a
functional language examination (reading, writing, and speaking) in French,
German, Russian, or Spanish as an alternative to the primary and secondary
language reading examinations. A student may not fulfill the foreign language
requirement by taking a functional knowledge examination in his native tongue.
A student who makes an A or B in the final course of the second-year
sequence of a foreign language (e.g., German 202, Spanish 202) will be
certified as having fulfilled the requirement for a functional knowledge of that
language if he takes this final course during his period of graduate study at
the University of Florida. Otherwise, he may demonstrate this level of pro-
ficiency by examination (given only at announced times) during his period of
graduate study. Students in Latin American Studies (see Special Program)
must demonstrate proficiency in Spanish or Portuguese equivalent to a grade
of A or B in Spanish 306 or Portuguese 305.

SUBSTITUTION OF MATHEMATICS
FOR A SECONDARY LANGUAGE EXAMINATION.-In order to strengthen the
mathematics background of students in certain departments individually ap-
proved by the Graduate Council (agricultural economics, agronomy, animal
science, business administration, entomology, and soils), where junior-level
mathematics is not required in the department's undergraduate curriculum, a
mathematics examination may be substituted for a reading knowledge examina-
tion of the secondary foreign language. To meet the required degree of pro-
ficiency in mathematics, the student, while enrolled in the University of Flor-
ida, must make a grade of B on the final examination of MS 304, or a
B in the course MS 304, or a grade of C in any mathematics course which
requires MS 304 as a prerequisite. The Department of Mathematics of the
University of Florida will certify the level of courses taken by a student out-
side the University of Florida who is applying for the privilege of substitution,
and the Department of Mathematics will determine by written or oral test
whether the student meets the level of achievement stated above, and will cer-
tify the result to the Graduate School.
Students pursuing the Ph.D. in medical sciences may substitute for the
second foreign language requirement the following three courses completed
with a grade of B or better: MS 410 (Numerical Methods in Linear Algebra),
STA 440 (Mathematical Statistics 1), STA 441 (Mathematical Statistics 2),
and STA 442 (Mathematical Statistics 3). These courses must be taken while
the student is enrolled in the Graduate School of the University of Florida.
An entering graduate student who has had these courses or their equivalent
as an undergraduate is ineligible to elect this option.
DATES FOR COMPLETION OF LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS.-The language
requirement should be met as early as possible in the student's program and
must be met before the student can be admitted to the qualifying examination.
The Department of Foreign Languages offers special noncredit classes in the








38 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
reading of French and German for graduate students. (See Schedule of
Courses.)

RESIDENCE
The minimum residence requirement for a doctor's degree is nine quarters
of full-time resident graduate study, or equivalent, at institutions approved by
the Graduate School. Beyond the master's degree or an equivalent period of
graduate study, three consecutive quarters must be spent in full-time study
(except as noted in the following paragraph) on the campus of the University
of Florida. Candidates in the College of Agriculture may do their research at
certain branch stations of the University of Florida Agricultural Experiment
Station where adequate staff and facilities are available.
Part-time study may be substituted for the three consecutive quarters of
full-time study stipulated in the preceding paragraph in either of the following
proportions: (1) 45 credits earned in one calendar year; or (2) 52 credits in
six successive registrations (either including or excluding summer registration).
An overload program, even when approved, will be valued as a normal
program in meeting all residence requirements.
For a student who has no employment and is devoting full time to his
studies, a registration of 12 to 15 credits entitles him to full residence credit.
Part-time study is evaluated on the basis that 15 credits represent a full load
(e.g., a student who is employed half-time and is registered for 10 credits ac-
quires 19% or % of a quarter of residence credit for each quarter of such
registration).
In some cases a student may be employed on a sponsored project from
which his thesis or dissertation will be drawn. Upon written recommendation
of the chairman of the supervisory committee, residence credit may be per-
mitted for the time devoted to such research. This recommendation must be
made during the quarter in which the work is done. All time devoted to routine
duties, or to research not related directly to the dissertation or thesis, should
be removed from consideration.
Between the qualifying examination and the oate of the degree, there must
be a minimum of two quarters if the candidate is in full-time residence, or
three quarters if the candidate is on less than a full-time basis. The quarter
in which the qualifying examination is passed is counted, provided that the
examination occurs before the midpoint of the term.

QUALIFYING EXAMINATION
The qualifying examination which is required of all candidates for the
degree of Doctor of Philosophy may be taken during the third term of the
second year of graduate study. The examination, conducted by the special
supervisory committee, with the aid of the major and minor departments, is
both written and oral and covers the major and minor subjects. At least five
faculty members must be present at the oral portion of this examination. The
supervisory committee has the responsibility at this time of deciding whether
the student is qualified to continue his work toward the Ph.D. degree.








REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 39
If the student fails in his qualifying examination, he will not be given a re-
examination unless such an examination is recommended by his supervisory
committee and approved by the Graduate School. At least a quarter of addi-
tional preparation is considered essential before re-examination.
An announcement of the scheduling of each student's qualifying examina-
tion must be submitted in writing to the Dean of the Graduate School. If the
student does not file for admission to candidacy immediately after his qualify-
ing examination, a written report of the result of his examination must be filed
with the Graduate School Office.
TIME LIMITATION.-All work for the doctor's degree must be completed
within five calendar years after the qualifying examination, or this examination
must be repeated.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
A graduate student does not become an actual candidate for the Ph.D.
degree until he has been formally admitted to candidacy. Such admission re-
quires the approval of the student's supervisory committee, the chairman of his
department, his college dean, and the Dean of the Graduate School. The ap-
proval must be based on (1) the academic record of the student, (2) the
opinion of his supervisory committee concerning his overall fitness for candi-
dacy, (3) an approved dissertation topic, and (4) a qualifying examination as
described above. Application for admission to candidacy is normally made as
soon as the qualifying examination has been passed.

DISSERTATION
A satisfactory dissertation showing independent investigation and research
is required of all candidates. Since all doctoral dissertations will be pub-
lished by microfilm, microcard, or as books or monographs, it is necessary that
the work be of publishable quality and that it be in a form suitable for publi-
cation. The original copy of the dissertation must be presented to the Dean of
the Graduate School on or before the date specified in the University Calendar.
The sum of $25 must be deposited with Student Accounts, the Hub, to cover
cost of publication as explained below.
PUBLICATION OF DISSERTATION.-Candidates for the Ph.D. and Ed.D.
degrees may choose one of the following three publication forms of their
their dissertations:
1. Microfilm. A deposit of $25 is required.
2. Microcard. The University Library will determine the cost of publica-
tion. The student will deposit the required amount at Student Accounts,
the Hub.
3. Book or Monograph. If publication is completed as a book or mono-
graph in essentially complete form within two years,* the Graduate
A monograph is defined by the Graduate School as a small book devoted
to one subject, published under its own cover, listed in either the Cumulative
Book Index or the Publisher's Weekly, and cataloged in accordance with
standard American library practices as a separate book. Reprints of articles
do not fulfill this definition.








40 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
Council will consider a request for refund of the entire deposit upon
receipt of five copies. (Proper reference to the dissertation must be given
in the publication.) Unless the candidate presents evidence of acceptance
of the dissertation for such publication by the end of the two-year
period, the Graduate Council will automatically authorize publication
of the dissertation by microfilm as indicated under (1) above.
COPYRIGHT.-Under (1) above the student may choose to copyright his
microfilmed dissertation before publication. The charge for copyright is $15.00.

FINAL EXAMINATION
After the acceptance of the dissertation and the completion of all other
prescribed work for the degree, but in no case earlier than six months before
the conferring of the degree, the candidate will be given a final examination,
oral or written or both, by his supervisory committee. At least five faculty
members must be present at the oral portion of this examination. An announce-
ment of the scheduled examination must be sent to the Dean of the Gradu-
ate School. Satisfactory performance on this examination completes all re-
quirements for the degree.

EXPENSES

APPLICATION FEE
Each application for admission to the University must be accompanied
by an application fee of $10.00. Application fees are nonrefundable. Admission
application to any college, school or division of the University must be made
to the Admissions Section of the Office of the Registrar. Further instructions
will be found in the Admissions section of this Catalog.

GENERAL
STUDENTS SHOULD BRING SUFFICIENT FUNDS, OTHER THAN PERSONAL
CHECKS, TO MEET THEIR IMMEDIATE NEEDS. PERSONAL CHECKS WILL
BE ACCEPTED FOR THE EXACT AMOUNT OF FEES.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS-FLORIDA OR NON-FLORIDA
For the purpose of assessing fees, applicants are classified as Florida
or non-Florida students. A Florida student is a person who has been a citizen
of the United States or a resident alien and who has resided and had his
habitation, domicile, home and permanent abode in the State of Florida for
at least twelve (12) months immediately preceding his current registration.
In applying this regulation, "applicant" shall mean a student applying for ad-
mission to the institution if he is married or 21 years of age, or, if he is a
minor, it shall mean parents, parent, or legal guardian of his or her person.
In all applications for admission by students as citizens of the State, the
applicant, if married or 21 years of age, or, if a minor, his parents or








EXPENSES / 41
legal guardian, shall make and file with such application a written statement
under oath that such applicant is a bona fide citizen and resident of the State
and entitled as such to admission upon the terms and conditions prescribed for
citizens and residents of the State.
In the determining of a Florida resident for purposes of assessing fees,
the burden of proof is on the applicant. Under the law an applicant can
change his place of residence from another state to the State of Florida only
by actually and physically coming into the State and establishing his residence
with the intention of permanently residing within the State. The domicile or
legal residence of the wife is that of the husband, and the legal residence of a
minor is that of the parents, parent, or legal guardian of his person.
A non-Florida student may apply in writing for reclassification prior to
any subsequent registration under the provisions set forth below. To qualify
for reclassification as a Florida student, a person (or if a minor, his parents)
shall have resided in Florida for twelve (12) months, shall have filed a
declaration of intent to become a resident of the State, and shall be registered
to vote in the State. An alien shall have resided in Florida for twelve (12)
months and must present U.S. Immigration and Naturalization certification that
he is a resident alien. If the application is supported by evidence satisfactory
to the University that the student then qualifies as a Florida student, his classi-
fication will be changed for future registrations.

REGISTRATION AND INSTRUCTIONAL FEES
The University Calendar appearing at the front of this Catalog sets forth
the beginning and ending dates of each quarter.
The following fees and charges are proposed at this time. However, since

BOOKSTORE DISCOUNTS
Graduate Assistants, Teaching and Research Assistants, and Teaching and
Research Associates who wish to obtain discounts at the University Campus
Shop and Bookstore should get their ID cards stamped at the Graduate School
office, Room 235, Tigert Hall.

TRAFFIC AND SAFETY REGULATIONS
All students must register their automobiles or motorcycles at the Uni-
versity Police Department during their first registration period at the Uni-
versity. Certain entrances are reserved for specific areas. Further, there is a
system for fines and a point system for on-campus vehicle violations. A com-
plete set of the Traffic and Safety Rules will be found in the offices of the
Dean of Men, Campus Police Station, and Student Traffic Court located in
the Florida Union. Each student should familiarize himself with these regula-
tions upon registering at the University.


HOUSING
FOR MARRIED GRADUATE STUDENTs.-Apartment accommodations on the
University campus are available for some married graduate students, but there
is currently a four- to ten-month waiting period between application and as-
signment, depending on the assignment period requested.
FOR SINGLE GRADUATE STUDENTS.-TwO modern, air-conditioned resi-
dence halls are reserved exclusively for upper-division and graduate students,
one hall for men and one for women. Sections of an additional residence hall
for graduate men are also available.
Housing contracts for all single students are for the contract year of four
quarters (September to August), if enrolled.

APPLICATIONS
Each student must make personal arrangements for his housing, either by
applying to the Office of the Director of Housing for assignment to University
housing facilities or by obtaining accommodations in private housing. All in-
quiries concerning University housing facilities should be addressed to the
Director of Housing, University of Florida, Gainesville 32601.
An application for housing may be filed at any time after application for








HOUSING / 45


admission to the University. Prospective students are urged to apply as early
as possible because of the housing demand.
Graduate students living in University housing are required to qualify as
full-time students as defined by their college or school, and they must continue
to make normal progress toward a degree as determined by the head of their
college or school.
Roommate requests are honored wherever possible, provided the indi-
viduals wishing to room together submit their applications at the same time,
clearly indicate on their respective applications their desire to room together,
and are within similar academic classifications. Any student interested in a room
assignment with a foreign student should indicate this preference on his ap-
plication.

RESIDENCE HALLS FOR SINGLE STUDENTS
Certain floors of the new Twin Towers residence hall (one hall for men
and one hall for women) are designated for graduate students. Eight suites ac-
commodating four students each are located on each floor. A suite includes two
bedrooms, a private bath, and a study-kitchenette room. The rooms provide
several study locations so that students studying will not disturb students sleep-
ing. The kitchenettes, with a refrigerator and range, allow students to prepare
light meals. The Towers are entirely carpeted and air-conditioned. Other special
features for residents include a library, social room, sundry shop, and lounges,
as well as laundry, vending, and seminar rooms. The quarterly rent rate, in-
cluding utilities and linen rental, is $155 per student. This rate is subject to
change.
In addition to the Towers, certain sections of Buckman Hall are designated
for male graduate students. These sections have room accommodations for ap-
proximately twenty-five students. All rooms have lavatories, and there is a com-
munity bath on each floor of each section. Coin-operated laundry facilities and
study lounges are located in adjacent halls. The quarterly rent rate, including
linen rental, for a double room is $110 per student; single rooms rent for
$120. These rates are subject to change. The number of single rooms is lim-
ited. Buckman Hall is not air-conditioned and is one of the oldest, most
traditional residence halls on campus. It is centrally located on campus, how-
ever, and near the new Graduate Research Library.

FACILITIES FOR MARRIED COUPLES
The University operates four apartment villages for married students. To
be eligible to apply for and occupy apartment housing on-campus, the fol-
lowing requirements must be met:
The married student must meet the requirements for admission to the
University of Florida, qualify as a full-time student as defined by his college
or school, and continue to make normal progress toward a degree as
determined by the head of his college or school.
The married student must be part of a family unit, defined as husband
and wife with or without children. No relatives or housekeepers can be








46 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
included as part of the family unit. In view of the limited size of on-
campus apartments, applications from families having more than four chil-
dren cannot be accepted.
The married student must be part of a family with a combined annual
income which does not exceed $4,800 or $400 per month during the period
of occupancy (including grants-in-aid, scholarships, fellowships, and grants).
Since on-campus apartments are intended to provide relatively low-cost
housing for married students, a family with a combined annual income in
excess of $4,800 cannot apply for or occupy an apartment except in un-
usual circumstances. Exceptions may be granted only by the Committee on
Student Housing.
FLAVET VILLAGE III, of temporary frame construction, includes one- and
two-bedroom units, which currently rent for $26.75 and $29.50 per month, re-
spectively. These rates are subject to change. These units are equipped with
basic furniture, but residents may request that it be stored if they have their
own furniture. Refrigerators are available on a monthly rental basis.
CORRY AND SCHUCHT MEMORIAL VILLAGES, of modern brick, concrete,
and wood construction, contain almost an equal number of one- and two-
bedroom apartments, with a few three-bedroom units in Corry Village only.
These apartments are furnished with basic equipment in living room, kitchen,
dining area, and one bedroom. No furniture may be removed from apart-
ments in Corry and Schucht. Rent rates (subject to change) are currently
$60, $65 and $75 per month. Applications for the three-bedroom units may
be made only by current residents.
DIAMOND MEMORIAL VILLAGE consists of 208 apartments similar in con-
struction, furnishings and equipment to those in Corry and Schucht Villages.
Special features include a community building with air-conditioned study-
meeting room, and a study cubicle in each two-bedroom apartment. Rent rates
(subject to change) are currently $60 and $70 per month for one- and two-
bedroom apartments, respectively.
Residents in all villages must furnish their own linens, dishes, rugs, curtains,
etc. Utilities, except for an allowable minimum electricity charge in the Flavet
Village, are an extra expense.

OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING
To aid students in obtaining private rental housing, the Housing Division
maintains an Off-Campus Section. All inquiries about off-campus housing should
be mailed to the Head of Off-Campus Housing, Division of Housing, Univer-
sity of Florida, Gainesville 32601.
Off-campus listings are maintained in the Off-Campus Section but are not
compiled for mailing, since availability changes frequently and a mutually sat-
isfactory rental arrangement can usually be made by the student only after
personal inspection of facilities and a conference with the householder. Stu-
dents seeking off-campus housing should come to Gainesville well before the
school period to confer with the Off-Campus Section about accommodations.
Advance office appointments may be made.

The Center for Latin American Studies is responsible for directing and
coordinating graduate training, research, and other academic activities related
to the Latin American area. All students who meet the equivalent of a Master
of Arts minor in Latin American Studies are eligible for inclusion in the Latin
American Studies Program. Though requirements for this minor vary with
individual departments, normally they consist of a minimum of 15 credits of
Latin American language and/or area courses, or 9 credits of Latin American
area courses and a reading knowledge of a Latin American language which is
acceptable to the department in which the major is taken.

GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
MASTER OF ARTS WITH MAJOR IN LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES.-This is an
interdisciplinary area degree offered directly by the Center. Requirements are:
(a) a major of at least 21 credits consisting primarily, if not exclusively, of
Latin American language or area courses in one department, which may be
agricultural economics, anthropology, economics, foreign languages (Spanish

work in the major department; (b) a 9-credit minor in another department; (c)
a thesis for which 9 credits are given; (d) a reading knowledge of a foreign
language. Through agreement with the Center, the departments named in the
preceding paragraph permit a Latin American concentration in the major and
minor fields, a thesis on a Latin American topic, and the use of a Latin Ameri-
can language to satisfy the language requirement.
The Ph.D. degree. The Center does not offer an interdisciplinary Latin
American area degree at the doctoral level. Through agreement with participat-
ing departments, however, it does provide a Certificate in Latin American
Studies which is awarded in conjunction with Ph.D. degrees in agricultural
economics, anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, so-
ciology and Spanish. Requirements for the certificate are: (a) Latin American
concentration within the major department; (b) an area minor of at least 30

CENTER FOR TROPICAL AGRICULTURE
The Center for Tropical Agriculture, within the Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, is responsible for stimulating research and curriculum devel-
opment oriented toward the tropics.
Graduate Degree Programs. Graduate programs with a minor in Tropical
Agriculture may be planned within the existing framework for graduate study
in the College of Agriculture and the School of Forestry leading to appropriate
advanced degrees. The student may choose from among more than thirty
courses dealing with tropical agriculture.
Those students working toward Master of Science in Agriculture, Master of
Science, or Doctor of Philosophy degrees are expected to carry out thesis re-
search related to a tropical problem. Students are encouraged to include in
their curriculum regional and tropical courses offered in other colleges which
would help prepare them for careers in their chosen area of the tropics.
The Centers for Latin American and African Studies offer many courses useful
to the student interested in tropical agriculture. Students are also eligible for
field courses in tropical countries which are offered by the Organization for
Tropical Studies. Foreign language proficiency is a valuable talent for those
training for international agricultural work. Language study is encouraged at
the master's level and may be required by the supervisory committee when it
is considered to be in the best interest of the student's program.
Research. The Center provides grants to faculty members and their gradu-
ate students for field research in the tropics. Interdisciplinary research by stu-
dents in disciplines with interests allied to tropical agriculture is encouraged.
Basic research either directly or indirectly provides support in depth to the
international technical assistance commitments of the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Science.
Student Support. The Center awards assistantships to qualified graduate
students in the College of Agriculture and School of Forestry pursuing tropi-
cally oriented training and research programs.
Other Activities. The Center enriches educational opportunities by bringing
to the campus recognized authorities on tropical agriculture for seminars and
symposia. Proceedings of symposia and other works are published. The Cen-
ter has an active acquisition program to build library resources in tropical agri-
culture.

ORGANIZATION FOR TROPICAL STUDIES
The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) was created by a consortium
of institutions to promote understanding of tropical environments and their
intelligent use by man. The University of Florida is a charter member. Gradu-







SPECIAL PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES / 55
ate courses are normally offered in Costa Rica or other tropical areas. Enroll-
ment in these courses is limited, and selection of students is competitive among
applicants from member universities. Living expenses and round trip transpor-
tation between the place of residence and Costa Rica are provided participants
by OTS. Funds are also available from OTS for support of research in tropi-
cal areas. Financial support for OTS is provided by the member institutions,
National Science Foundation, Agency for International Development and the
Ford Foundation. Graduate courses are now offered in zoology, botany, geog-
raphy, agriculture and forestry. Additional courses are under consideration.
Interested students should consult their department chairman for additional in-
formation.

BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
The Division of Biological Sciences is organized on a cross-college basis to
provide stimulation and coordination in the Biological Sciences. The Division,
with a staff from many disciplines in the several colleges, has organized facul-
ties in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Genetics, Developmental Biology,
Parasitology, Marine Biology, and Radiation Biology. Each faculty is respon-
sible for developing and supervising a core program in its special area. In
addition to the cross-college programs, the Division serves to coordinate
biological science wherever it exists in the University. The departments of
Zoology (with the area of Marine Science) in Arts and Sciences, Botany and
Bacteriology in Agriculture, and Biological Science in the University College
are specifically designated as administratively responsible to the Division of
Biological Sciences.

STATE CENTERS FOR GRADUATE EDUCATION IN ENGINEERING
Recognizing its responsibilities to the industries, engineers, and residents
of Florida, the College of Engineering has established graduate engineering
education centers where qualified personnel may enroll in courses leading to
the master's degree. For admission to any of the graduate programs, the
prospective student must file an application with the Graduate School as
outlined in the Admissions Section of this Catalog. Off-campus centers are
presently located in Duval, Escambia, Bay, and Broward Counties.
For additional information, visit the nearest local center, or write to the
Director, Engineering External Programs, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32601.

GENESYS
This is an acronym for Graduate Engineering Education System. It con-
sists of a closed-circuit television system, provided with a talk-back feature
for student participation, regardless of location. There are both northbound
and southbound channels connecting satellite campuses at Daytona Beach,
Orlando, Port Canaveral, and West Palm Beach. Full-scale courses are offered
and lectures may originate and be transmitted from studios located at any of








56 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

these sites except West Palm Beach. Although primarily designed to meet the
need of engineers in industry who could not attend courses in Gainesville,
graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in residence in Gainesville enroll
in many of these courses. A detailed brochure on this system and its offerings
may be obtained by writing the Dean of the College of Engineering.

TRAVELING SCHOLAR PROGRAM
The State University System affords, under the Traveling Scholar Program,
an opportunity for graduate students to take course work or conduct research
activities at any of the universities in the State System. The course work taken
under the auspices of the Traveling Scholar Program at another university in the
System will apply for graduate degree credit at the student's home campus. The
deans of the graduate schools of the State universities are the coordinators of
the Program. For details regarding the Program and for approval to participate
in it, students must apply to the dean of the graduate school on their home
campus.

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
Graduate work is offered leading to various fields of public employment.
Three training sequences are outlined herein:
Management Sequence.-Adviser for the major field is in the Department of
Political Science. Training in this area leads to positions in city manager govern-
ment and meets state and federal civil service requirements. The major will be
a concentration of public administration courses within the field of political
science. A minor or minors may be taken in economics (concentration in pub-
lic finance), accounting, or other areas.
Governmental Planning Sequence.-Adviser is in the Department of Politi-
cal Science. Training in this area is offered leading to positions in local, state,
and federal government planning agencies. The curriculum consists of semi-
nars in planning, public administration and public law and recommended
courses in statistics, economics, sociology, geography, or agricultural economics.
Supervised summer internships in selected planning agencies in Florida are
arranged by the department as an integral part of the training program.
All sequences will include 45 credits of work and a thesis. The major is 18
to 27 credits and the minor is 8 to 18 credits, at least 8 of which must be in one
field. The thesis normally covers 9 credits of research.

URBAN PROBLEMS
A comprehensive curriculum concentrating on urban problems, leading to
the Ph.D. degree, is offered through the Department of Political Science. Four
fields in political science are specified for this curriculum: public administra-
tion, American government (including national as well as local government,
parties, and political behavior), public law, and either political theory and
methodology or comparative government. The fifth field is in the minor and
may be taken in either economics or sociology. Certain courses in method-
ology are required, such as PCL 613 and statistics. All other requirements, such








SPECIAL PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES / 57
as languages, remain the same as those for the regular Ph.D. with major in
political science.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Specialization in international relations leading to the M.A. and Ph.D.
degrees is offered in programs through the Department of Political Science. In
addition to the M.A. and Ph.D. with major in political science which may
emphasize international relations, the University offers an M.A. and Ph.D. with
a major in international relations. For the M.A. the requirements are the same
as for the M.A. in political science. For the Ph.D. three fields of political
science (plus two graduate courses in a fourth field) and two minor fields are
required. All other requirements, such as language, remain the same.

MASTER'S DEGREES FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHERS OF TECHNOLOGY
Programs are offered cooperatively between the College of Education and
the Colleges of Agriculture, Architecture and Fine Arts (Departments of
Architecture and of Building Construction), Business Administration, Engi-
neering, Health Related Professions, and Nursing. Their intent is to supply
competent teachers for the many two-year technology programs being offered
both in this and other states.
Generally speaking, a person with a prior degree who has a working knowl-
edge of calculus and college-level physics can complete this degree program in
one calendar year. If the prospective student is uncertain of his proficiency in
these areas, proficiency can be regained through enrollment in a quarter prior
to his embarking upon the master's degree program.
Admission Requirements.-Applicants must meet the admission require-
ments of the Graduate School and the College of Education. Generally speak-
ing, applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from an approved college or
university and must have a grade point average of at least 2.75 on a 4.0 sys-
tem during their junior and senior years. The Aptitude Test of the Graduate
Record Examination is also used as a basis for selection.
Curriculum.-The curriculum is a non-thesis program with a minimum
requirement of 50 credits. The student must satisfy the master's degree require-
ments of the college from which he expects to receive the degree. The general
pattern of all programs includes from 16 to 32 credits of education and 16 to
32 credits of work in the technical specialty. An individual program will
depend upon previous background and experience.

FORD FOUNDATION THREE-YEAR MASTER'S PROGRAM
Ford Foundation Undergraduate-Graduate Program.-Originally supported
by a grant from the Ford Foundation, a three-year master's degree program
in the Graduate School is now conducted by the University of Florida. The
program begins with the junior year and normally continues through the first
year of graduate study. Students who maintain satisfactory progress are
awarded a fellowship or assistantship for the third or final year, and receive

RESEARCH PROGRAM THROUGH THE OAK RIDGE ASSOCIATED UNIVERSITIES
The University of Florida is one of the sponsors of the Oak Ridge Asso-
ciated Universities (formerly the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies) lo-
cated at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Through this sponsorship our graduate research
program has at its disposal all the facilities of the Oak Ridge National Labora-
tory, the Medical and Special Training Divisions of the Oak Ridge Associated
Universities, the Atomic Energy Commission-University of Tennessee Agri-
cultural Research Laboratory, and the research staffs of these laboratories.
When a candidate has completed one year (two for the Ph.D.) of his resi-
dent work, it is possible, by special arrangement, for him to go to Oak
Ridge to work towards completion of his research problem and the preparation
of his thesis. In addition, it is possible for the staff members of this Univer-
sity to go to Oak Ridge for varying periods, usually not less than three
months, for advanced study in their particular field. Both staff and students are
kept abreast of the most modern and up-to-date developments in atomic and
nuclear research in progress at the Oak Ridge laboratories.
The students who go to Oak Ridge hold Oak Ridge Graduate Fellowships,
which have varying stipends determined by the number of their dependents
and their level of work. Staff members may work at Oak Ridge on stipends
commensurate with their present salaries.
A copy of the bulletin and announcement of the Graduate Training Pro-
gram of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities is available in the Office of the
Graduate School. Bulletins may also be obtained by writing to the Chairman of
the University Relations Division of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities,
P.O. Box 117, Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37831. Interested persons should ask for
assistance from Dr. Billy G. Dunavant, Director of the University's Nuclear
Sciences Program, who serves as the Oak Ridge Associated Universities Coun-
selor at the University of Florida.
All arrangements for these fellowships will be made between the Dean of
the Graduate School and the Oak Ridge Associated Universities.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LIBRARY SERVICE
The library system consists of two major central units, the Research Library
and the College Library. There are, also, several libraries serving the various
academic colleges and schools. The holdings of the libraries number over
1,273,000 cataloged volumes and a large number of uncataloged documents
and newspapers.
The reference and bibliography collection, which includes the basic bibli-
ographies, abstracting and indexing services, and catalogs of other libraries,








SPECIAL PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES / 59
is located on the first floor of the Research Library, where there are librarians
available for consultation and assistance. Among the special collections in the
Research Library are the Rare Book Collection, the Dance-Music-Theatre Ar-
chives, the P. K. Yonge Library of Florida History, the Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings Collection, which consists of manuscripts, typescripts, and memora-
bilia of one of America's distinguished novelists, and the Collection of Creative
Writing, which includes work sheets, manuscripts, and other literary papers
of significant contemporary American and British authors. In recent years,
special emphasis has been placed upon strengthening the holdings for the Latin
American Area Studies Program, especially for the West Indies and the
Caribbean areas.
A new Graduate Research Library was opened in 1966. This modern, six-
story building is designed to provide service for faculty and graduate students.
It houses 600,000 books, has a seating capacity of 910, and contains 120 con-
ference rooms and studies.
The system also includes libraries for the Colleges of Architecture and
Fine Arts; Education; Engineering; Physics and Astronomy; Law; the Institute
of Food and Agricultural Science; the units comprising the J. Hillis Miller
Health Center; Chemistry; and the P. K. Yonge Laboratory School. In addi-
tion, reading room facilities have been provided in Journalism and Communica-
tions, in Health and Physical Education and in the dormitory areas.
The Library Handbook provides helpful information on hours, loan peri-
ods, and special services.

FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM
The Florida State Museum was created by an act of the Legislature in 1917
as a department of the University of Florida. Through its affiliation with the
University it carries the dual responsibility of the State and University Museum.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthropology and natural
history. Its accessory functions as an educational arm of the University are
carried forward through interpretive displays and scientific publications. Under
the administrative control of the director are the three departments of the
Museum: Natural Sciences, staffed by scientists and technicians concerned
with the study and expansion of the research collections of animals; Social
Sciences, whose staff members are concerned with the study of historic and
prehistoric cultures; Interpretation, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of
knowledge through museum exhibit techniques.
The Museum exhibition halls occupy the first two floors of the Seagle
Building, a ten-story office building located in downtown Gainesville, nine
blocks from the campus. These halls are open to the public from nine-thirty
until five o'clock every day except Sundays and major holidays, when they
are open from one to five o'clock. There is no admission charge. The Museum
is frequently used by University and public school classes and is visited by
over 75,000 persons annually.
Occupying five additional floors in the Seagle Building and other space
on campus, the research collections now total approximately one million items.








60 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
These collections are under the care of curators who encourage the scientific
study of the Museum's holdings. Materials are constantly being added to the
collection both through gifts from friends and through collecting by staff
members. The archaeological collections are noteworthy. There are extensive
study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks, reptiles, amphibians, fish,
and vertebrate fossils. The latter seven collections are cooperatively main-
tained by the Museum and Department of Zoology. The collection of inverte-
brate fossils is maintained in cooperation with the Department of Geology.
Opportunities are provided for students, staff, and visiting scientists to use the
collections. Research and field work are presently sponsored in the archaeo-
logical, paleontological and zoological fields. Students interested in these spe-
cialties should make application to the appropriate teaching department.

THE UNIVERSITY CENTER OF THE ARTS
The University Center of the Arts serves students, faculty, and the gen-
eral public by presenting exhibitions and performances of the best works in the
visual and performing arts.

THE UNIVERSITY GALLERY
The University Gallery is an integral part of the new Architecture and
Fine Arts complex. The Gallery is located on the campus facing south 13th
Street (or U. S. 441). An atrium and a reflecting pool are two pleasing
features of the Gallery's distinctive architectural style. The Gallery, with
3000 square feet of display space, is completely modern, air-conditioned,
and maintains a varied exhibition schedule of the visual arts during the
year. The contents of exhibitions displayed in the University Gallery range
from the creations of traditional masters to the latest and most experimental
works by the modern avant garde. The minor arts of yesterday and today,
along with the creations of oriental and primitive cultures, form topics for
scheduled exhibitions. The Gallery originates one or two of the major exhi-
bitions during the year. Each exhibition shows for approximately a month,
and the Gallery's hours are from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. daily except Sunday,
when they are from 1 P.M. to 5 P.M. The Gallery is closed on Mondays, holi-
days and during the month of August.

THE TEACHING GALLERY
The Teaching Gallery of the Department of Art is located adjacent to the
department's office area, on the third floor of the new Classroom Building in
the College of Architecture and Fine Arts complex. As a direct and physical
adjunct to the Art Department's teaching program, this Gallery displays
smaller traveling exhibitions of merit, as well as one-man shows by faculty
artists and student exhibitions. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday
from 9 A.M. to noon and from 1:30 P.M. to 5 P.M. It is closed Saturdays
and Sundays.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PRESS
The purpose of the University Press is to encourage, seek out, and publish
original and scholarly manuscripts which will aid in developing the University
as a recognized center of research and scholarship.
In addition to its broad range of state, regional, and Latin American titles,
the Press publishes books of general interest, and seven separate series: Ca-
ribbean conferences, Floridiana facsimile and reprint, Latin American gateway,
geronotology, humanities, Latin American, and social sciences. It is also the
publisher of The Handbook of Latin American Studies, sponsored by the Li-
brary of Congress, and is the distributor throughout the United States and Can-
ada of the publications of the Caribbean Commission and of the Inter-American
Bibliographical and Library Association.
The Press Board of Managers, including the director and fourteen faculty
experts appointed by the President of the University, determines policies of
publication relating to the acceptance or rejection of manuscripts and the is-
suance of author contracts. Each year the board examines numerous manu-
scripts submitted not only by the University faculty but by authors from all
over the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
The Press is a member of the Association of American University Presses.
Students and members of the faculty and staff are cordially invited to
visit the Press offices at 15 N.W. 15th Street, adjacent to the campus.

community of the University. The Social Sciences Monographs are published
four times each year with subjects drawn from anthropology, economics, his-
tory, political science, sociology, education, geography, law, and psychology.
The Humanities Monographs are published three times each year with subjects
drawn from art, history, language and literature, music, philosophy, and re-
ligion.

ORGANIZED RESEARCH
The Division of Sponsored Research has two general functions: (1) the
administration and promotion of the Sponsored Research Program and (2) the
support of the total research program of the University in a manner which
produces maximum benefit to the University and the greatest service to the
State of Florida. All proposals for the sponsorship of research, grants-in-aid, or
training grants must receive the approval of the Director of Research. Subse-
quent negotiations with potential contracting agencies or sponsors of research
projects are carried on under the Director's supervision.
The activities of the Division of Sponsored Research are intended to
stimulate growth and to assist in expanding a balanced research program
throughout the University. These activities are intimately related to the support
of the graduate program. They are also intended to relieve principal investiga-
tors and departments of many of the detailed administrative and reporting
duties connected with some sponsored research. The duties and responsibilities
of the Division, of course, do not infringe upon the prerogative of the principal
investigator to seek sponsors for his own projects nor upon the responsibility
of the researcher for the scientific integrity of a project. In direct contacts
between a principal investigator and a potential sponsor, however, prior clear-
ance should be obtained from the Division to insure a uniformity in contract
requirements and to avoid duplication of negotiations with the same sponsor.
The Division of Sponsored Research is administratively responsible to the
Vice President for Academic Affairs. Policies and procedures for the opera-
tion of the Division are developed by a Board of Directors working with the
Director of Research within the general framework of the administration,
policies, and procedures of the University. The Research Council serves as
adviser on scientific matters. The Dean of the Graduate School and the Grad-
uate Council serve as advisers on matters relating to the graduate program.
The Agricultural Experimental Stations are responsible for research lead-
ing to the improvement of all phases of Florida's widely varied agricultural
production, processing, and marketing. The stations are administered by the
Dean for Research located on the University of Florida campus and include
main station departments as well as branch stations and field laboratories
operating as an integral administrative unit. As a statewide agency having
agricultural research as its primary objective, the stations cooperate closely
with numerous Florida agricultural agencies and organizations.
Many members of the research staff of the Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tions are also members of the faculty of the College of Agriculture as are








ORGANIZED RESEARCH / 63
some in the Agricultural Extension Service and the Center for Tropical Agri-
culture. These three agricultural units of the University of Florida Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences work cooperatively in many areas under the
administration of the Provost for Agriculture.
Funds for graduate assistants are made available to encourage graduate
training and professional scientific improvement
Research at the main station is conducted within 18 departments-Agri-
cultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Science,
Bacteriology, Botany, Dairy Science, Entomology, Food Science, Forestry,
Fruit Crops, Ornamental Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Poultry Science, Soils,
Statistics, Vegetable Crops, and Veterinary Science. In addition to the above,
the main station has three units vital to its research programs; namely, Editorial,
Field Services, and Plant Science Section.
The branch stations and field laboratories, and their locations, are as
follows: Central Florida Station, Sanford; Citrus Station, Lake Alfred; Ever-
glades Station, Belle Glade; Gulf Coast Station, Bradenton; North Florida
Station, Quincy; Range Cattle Station, Ona; Sub-Tropical Station, Homestead;
Suwannee Valley Station, Live Oak; West Florida Station, Jay; Indian River
Field Laboratory, Fort Pierce; Plantation Field Laboratory, Fort Lauderdale;
South Florida Field Laboratory, Immokalee; Potato Investigations Labora-
tory, Hastings; Big Bend Horticultural Laboratory, Monticello; Strawberry
and Vegetable Field Laboratory, Plant City; and the Watermelon and Grape
Investigations Laboratory, Leesburg; West Florida Dairy Unit, Chipley; and
Marianna Unit, Marianna.
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station is cooperating with the
Brooksville Beef Cattle Research Station, Brooksville, a USDA field labora-
tory, in its beef cattle and pasture production and management programs;
and with the United States Weather Bureau, Lakeland, in the Federal Frost
Warning Service for fruit and vegetable producers and shippers.
The Florida Engineering and Industrial Experiment Station developed from
early research activities of the engineering faculty and was officially established
in 1941 by the Legislature as an integral part of the College of Engineering.
Its mandate is "to organize and promote the prosecution of research projects
of engineering and related sciences, with special reference to such of these
problems as are important to the industries of Florida."
The College and the Station are inextricably intertwined-the two activi-
ties cannot be separated functionally; they comprise the two arms of the whole
engineering body. This is particularly true at the graduate level. In many in-
stances a program initiated primarily as a research activity has developed into
a full-fledged academic department of the College, demonstrating the close
interlocking relationship of the research and teaching functions.
Early in the Fall term of 1967, five departments of the College of Engi-
neering and the Experiment Station moved into some 235,000 sq. ft. provided
by six new modern buildings located on the South Campus. Also completed
is 42,000 sq. ft. of remodeled space for the Metallurgical and Materials
Engineering Department. These improvements, including equipment other than








64 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
government-owned, have raised the value of the plant to more than $13 mil-
lion. The laboratories, staff, and facilities of other divisions of the University are
also available to the Station research faculty through many outstanding inter-
disciplinary programs, which provide Station support of graduate students in
the physical sciences such as physics and chemistry, as well as in engineering.
With the close relationship that exists between teaching and research, students
are exposed to many engineering and industrial problems normally not encom-
passed in a college program.
The Station receives only a small portion of its operating revenue from the
state. The major support of its research activities is derived from contracts with
government agencies, foundations, and industrial organizations. Large and small
manufacturers avail themselves of the finest engineering research laboratories
in the Southeast. The Station has superior facilities and staff in such fields as
microelectronics and integrated circuits; power systems; metallurgy; ceramics;
coastal engineering; soil mechanics; transport phenomena and fluid dynamics;
energy conversion; air and water pollution control; electrochemistry; fast neu-
tron physics; nuclear rocket propulsion; dynamics and vibrations; communica-
tions; kinetics; ionics; gaseous electronics and plasmas, and systems analysis, to
name a few.
These capabilities are reflected in the quality of the graduate student body,
which is deeply involved in these and other areas of research.
The Bureau of Research is one of the activities of the College of Archi-
tecture and Fine Arts. It fosters and encourages research in all areas of the
building arts and fine arts. It also provides an opportunity for graduate stu-
dents and faculty members to engage in research and cooperate effectively in
research with other University departments.
The Bureau of Economic and Business Research is the research division
of the College of Business Administration. A part of the Bureau's work is
designed to further understanding of the economy of Florida and the South-
east. Economic, business, and related research supported by grant and contract
funds is undertaken in subject areas of interest to the faculty. Graduate students
are involved also in these projects.
The Bureau publishes two monthly periodicals: Dimensions and Economic
Leaflets. Through these publications and monographs, the Bureau disseminates
the results of research and information gained from continuing statistical
series on personal income, population, construction, retail sales, employment,
and the activities of commercial banks and savings and loan associations.
The Public Administration Clearing Service is a research and service ad-
junct of the Department of Political Science in the College of Arts and
Sciences. It carries on a continuous program of research on public administra-
tion, political behavior, and public policy in Florida; it provides consulting
services on a contract basis to state and local governments in Florida; it
publishes research studies and surveys of administrative and political problems
in both scientific and popular monograph form and it publishes a Civic In-
formation Series annually for assistance to citizen groups in their study of
current issues in the state.








STUDENT SERVICES / 65
The Institute of International Relations is a research agency administered
through the Department of Political Science to conduct studies in international
relations.
The Research Division of the College of Journalism and Communications
conducts research in the news media, in broadcasting, advertising, and public
opinion.
The Urban Studies Bureau is a university-wide research agency adminis-
tered through the College of Arts and Sciences. It encourages and facilitates
interdisciplinary research in urban areas and provides opportunities for faculty
to undertake research in cooperation with other departments.
The Florida Water Resources Research Center was established in 1964 as
the result of the passage of P.L. 88-379-The Water Resources Research Act
of 1964-"to stimulate, sponsor, provide for, and supplement present programs
for conduct of research, investigation, experiments, and the training of scien-
tists in the fields of water and of resources which affect water." The Center
has a small administrative staff and the funds available to it are used largely
in water research projects. It is under the general policy guidance of a com-
mittee composed of the vice-president for Academic Affairs, the deans of the
College of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Law, the dean of Research,
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and the director of the Division
of Sponsored Research.
The Health Systems Research Division is an interdisciplinary activity orga-
nized within the office of the Provost, J. Hillis Miller Health Center. Its
function is to design and conduct systems research aimed toward improve-
ments in the effectiveness and efficiency of the delivery of all types of health
services and the development of methods for the optimal allocation of health
resources. Research projects are carried out in and for the Shands Teaching
Hospital and Clinics and the various colleges of the Health Center by faculty
and graduate students from a number of academic disciplines, especially the
Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and the Graduate Program
in Health and Hospital Administration. In addition to research efforts for
health units within the University of Florida which are supported by the state,
or by research grants from outside sources, projects are conducted on a con-
tract basis for health organizations and agencies outside the University.


STUDENT SERVICES

The Office (International Center) of the Foreign Student Adviser is the
center of services performed in behalf of the foreign students from the time
of receiving their initial inquiries until they return home. The office coordinates
action with other university agencies and is charged with responsibilities in-
volving admissions, reception, orientation, housing, finances, health, immigra-
tion, academic counseling, petitions, practical training, employment, embassy

and Peace Corps and VISTA contact for volunteers. Foreign faculty members
also receive assistance.
The University Placement Center functions as the central placement
agency for the campus with services available to all students and alumni of the
University; and it works in conjunction with the schools and colleges who give
direct assistance to their graduates.
In cooperation with educational and administrative units, counseling and
testing services, and other related functions, the placement service makes its
contribution to the development of the whole individual. Its primary aim is to
offer assistance to students, from the time they enter school until they graduate,
in the development of vocational goals and attainment of their first career
position. Assistance is also offered to alumni who have attended graduate
school elsewhere, who are returning to civilian life from the military, or those
desiring to make changes in employment.
Functions include: (1) serving as liaison between students and business,
industrial, governmental, and educational organizations that are seeking col-
lege trained personnel for permanent employment; (2) establishing and main-
taining records on registrants, employment opportunities, and placement results;
(3) conducting studies on the employment outlook, salary trends, progress
of graduates in the working world, and related matters; (4) assisting students
who leave school before graduation and, also, assisting students in finding
summer jobs which relate to their fields of study and employment goals;
(5) serving in a public relations capacity in dealing with employers and the
public.
Specific services include: career planning and guidance; counseling on the
tools and techniques of the job search; arranging interviews between em-
ployers and students; providing personnel records and faculty ratings on stu-
dents to employers; preparing and mailing lists of job opportunities to regis-
trants; distributing recruitment booklets and materials; and administering tests
for employers.
These services are available to any student or alumnus without charge.
The University Counseling Center provides psychological services to the
members of the student body and consultative services for the University
staff members who are engaged in counseling relationships with University
students. It also provides practicum experience for graduate students in the
departments of Psychology and Personnel Services. It engages in institutional
as well as basic research in the problems of counseling. Specific services in-
clude vocational counseling, personal counseling, marriage counseling and prob-
lems of the underachiever. In these functions the University Counseling Center
works closely with staff in the residence halls and with the academic advisers
in the University College and upper division colleges. The Center works with
the University Mental Health Service on a referral basis and with the director
of the early registration program in the orientation of prospective students to
the program of the University.
The Student Health Service provides medical care, health maintenance pro-
grams and mental health consultation to all full-time students in the University.








STUDENT SERVICES / 67
The student health fee is a part of the tuition fee. A student Health Insur-
ance Policy which is designed to provide additional compensation for costs of
hospitalization, referral services and diagnostic procedures is available and
highly recommended, but is not mandatory. Several immunization innoculations
are required prior to registration. Applicants for admission to the University
receive a form for medical history and physical examination. The history should
be completed by the applicant before he goes to his physician for physical
examination. The examination portion and the immunizations must be com-
pleted by a licensed doctor of medicine (M.D.) and the form mailed by the
doctor to the Director, Student Health Service. This health record is then re-
viewed by a physician before the applicant is cleared for registration at the
University. (For additional information see the Undergraduate Catalog.)
The Speech and Hearing Clinics, Room 436, Arts and Sciences Building,
offer services without charge to any University student who has a speech or
hearing disorder. This assistance is available at any time during the year and
therapy sessions are adjusted to individual schedules. The student is encouraged
to visit the Clinics and to take advantage of this service.

PREPARATION OF THESIS
Graduate School Editorial Service aids in the preparation of the thesis or
dissertation which is one aspect of the training in the mature and responsible
scholarship expected of a candidate. The following policies and procedures
apply to the Graduate School's editorial services for students:
1. The responsibility for acceptable English in a thesis is principally the
Supervisory Committee's.
2. The Graduate School staff acts in an advisory capacity. It informs the
student concerning acceptable form (not content) for a thesis. The staff
spot checks each thesis for format, proper footnote form, pagination,
and general mechanics.
3. The Graduate School staff can advise a student concerning proper
grammar, sentence structure, and correct word usage only to the extent
of correcting a few pages.
4. If the student will bring his rough draft to the Graduate School Office,
the staff will examine a limited portion; should it appear that the student
is not in control of the English language, his supervisory committee
chairman will be so notified by letter. The chairman may then elect to
help correct the student's English; or, if the student is foreign, the chair-
man may advise him to seek expert advice concerning English.
