THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY

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,
who are appointed by the dean with the approval of the Graduate Council,
fall into two categories in accordance with their function: the Graduate Studies
Faculty, who are appointed to teach graduate courses and to direct master's
theses, and the Doctoral Research Faculty, who are appointed in addition 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.
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 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 L. E. Grinter, who came from the Illinois
Institute of Technology, where he had been Vice President, Dean of the
Graduate School, and Research Professor. Upon becoming Acting Executive
Vice President in 1969, Dr. Grinter was named dean emeritus of the Graduate
School. He was succeeded by Harold P. Hanson, who came to Florida from
the University of Texas, where he had served as Chairman of the Depart-
ment of Physics. In 1971, Dr. Hanson was appointed Vice President for









4 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

Academic Affairs. Professor Alexander G. Smith, of the Department of
Physics and Astronomy, and a former assistant dean of the Graduate School,
is currently serving as acting dean.
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 a major in entomology. The first programs leading to the Ph.D.
were initiated in 1930, and the first degrees were awarded in 1934, one with a
major in chemistry and the other with a major in pharmacy. The first Ed.D.
was awarded in 1948. Graduate study has had a phenomenal growth at the
University of Florida. In 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 1970-1971 the total number of graduate degrees awarded was
1,558 in more than 90 fields. The proportion of doctoral degrees has in-
creased steadily. In 1950, 18 Ph.D.'s and 5 Ed.D.'s were awarded. In 1970-
1971 the totals were 236 Ph.D.'s and 63 Ed.D.'s.

ADMISSION / 9

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
done. Official supplementary transcripts are required, as soon as they are
available, for any work completed after the application for admission has
been made. In general, no student who is a graduate of a nonaccredited insti-
tution will be considered for graduate study in any unit of the University.
The University encourages applications from qualified persons of all cul-
tural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups.

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 or better for the junior and senior
years. In some units of the Graduate School and on the more advanced levels
of graduate study, an undergraduate average considerably above B may be
required. In some colleges and departments admission may be considered with
an average somewhat below B. Graduate admission selection committees con-
sider not only the general grade average, but the distribution of work and the
quality and extent of preparation for the graduate program the student pro-
poses to undertake.
In addition, performance on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE-
see next section) is used in evaluating an applicant, especially in cases where
the undergraduate average is slightly below B or includes a large number of
nontraditional grades.
Prospective students should contact the department in the field of their
interest to ascertain whether there are exceptions to the general rules above.
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.

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









10 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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 June-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 December for admission in March, in early January for
admission in June, and in early March for admission in September. Other
examinations are given for which application must be made in November and
May, 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 registration in a second quarter will be
permitted.
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, Room 311, Little Hall, throughout the calendar year at 2:45 P.M.
on Wednesday and Thursday. Special appointments can be made by contacting
the Counseling Center. The cost of the test, $3, 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 appli-
cation for admission is otherwise 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, June,
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.









ADMISSION / 11


ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE ENGINEERING
EDUCATION SYSTEM (GENESYS)
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, 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 insti-
tution 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 require-
ments established by the Graduate School. Briefly stated, these requirements
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-
tration form. A final consideration cannot be granted a foreign student's









12 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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.
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.
CONDITIONAL ADMISSION
Students may be given conditional admission to the Graduate School for
any of the following reasons: (1) to validate undergraduate records from
nonaccredited and unevaluated colleges, (2) to establish the student's ability
to meet the requirements of the Graduate School in cases where the quantity
or quality of his preparation cannot be determined with sufficient certainty
for unconditional admission, (3) to repair deficiencies in an undergraduate
program which does not meet the prerequisites for graduate study set by the
student's major department, and (4) to ascertain the student's ability to
pursue graduate work successfully in cases where his previous grade record
or GRE scores are on the borderline of acceptability.
A student who is conditionally admitted to the Graduate School should be
notified by his major department of the conditions under which he has been
admitted. When those conditions have been satisfied, the department should
notify the student in writing and send a copy of the notification to the Graduate
School. Work taken while a student is in conditional status may be applied
toward a graduate degree.
ADMISSION OF POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
Postbaccalaureate students (classified 6) who have not been admitted to
the Graduate School may take graduate courses, but the work so taken will
not normally be transferred to the student's graduate record if he is sub-
sequently admitted to the Graduate School. By petition in clearly justified
cases, it is possible to transfer up to ten quarter hours, but in no case will more
than ten hours be transferred.
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.









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 13


UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN GRADUATE COURSES
With the permission of the instructor and of the college concerned, 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 registration, during any term in which he is enrolled in a
graduate course, may not exceed 17 credits. A 600-level course taken under
this provision may be applied toward a graduate degree at the University of
Florida after the student has been accepted in the Graduate School if credit
for the course has not been used for an undergraduate degree.

INFORMATION FOR VETERANS
The University of Florida is approved for the education and training of
veterans under all public laws in effect; i.e., Chapter 31, Title 38, U.S. Code
(Disabled Veterans); Chapter 34, Title 38, U.S. Code (Cold-War G.I. Bill);
and Chapter 35, Title 38, U.S. Code (Children of Deceased or Disabled
Veterans).
Students who may be eligible for educational benefits under any Veterans
Administration program are urged to contact the local Veterans Administration
representative or the Veterans Administration Regional Office, P.O. Box 1437,
St. Petersburg, Florida, well in advance of the date of registrations.
Students expecting to receive benefits under one of these programs must
file with the Office of the Registrar their Certificate of Eligibility which is
issued by the Veterans Administration. No certification can be made until the
Certificate is on file. Benefits are determined by the Veterans Administration,
and the University certifies according to their rules and regulations.

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.









14 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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/or the graduate coordinator in the department
in which he will do his work concerning course requirements, deficiencies if
any, the planning of a program, and special regulations. 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.

STUDY LOADS
The University of Florida operates on a quarter system consisting of four
10-week periods of instruction and examination. A credit under the quarter
system is equal to 2/3 of a semester credit.
MAXIMUM REGISTRATION.-The maximum registration in graduate courses
and thesis research in any quarter is 17 credits. In addition, all students en-
gaged in supervised research or teaching, except full-time employees, may
register in the courses numbered 697 and 698 for an appropriate number of
credits from 1 to 5. Part-time employment of any kind, either on or off
campus, reduces the maximum study load as indicated by the following table:
Fraction Maximum Maximum Maximum Total
of Time Hours a Week Course and 697-698 Maximum
Employed Employed Thesis Credits Credit Credit
none none 17 5 22
% time 12 15 5 20
% time 15 14 5 19
Time 20 11 5 16
% time 30 8 5 13
full time 40 6* 0 6
*Including registration in one course only plus thesis research.
MINIMUM REGISTRATION.-Graduate students who receive a stipend of any
kind from the University must register for at least the following number of
course and thesis credits (exclusive of 697 or 698): Fellows and trainees,
15 credits; one-fourth-time assistants, 12 credits; one-third-time assistants, 9
credits; one-half-time assistants, 9 credits; three-fourth-time assistants, 7 credits.
In addition, they should register for an appropriate number of 697 or 698
credits. All other graduate students must register for a minimum of 1 credit.

COURSES AND CREDITS
Courses numbered 500-599 are primarily for advanced undergraduate
students. They may be used for graduate major credit only if they have been
approved for this purpose by the Graduate Council and are listed under the
appropriate department in this Catalog. Courses numbered 600 and above are
limited to graduate students, with the exception described above as Under-
graduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses numbered 700 and above
are graduate courses primarily for advanced graduate students.









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 15
Undergraduate courses numbered 300 and above are acceptable for minor
credit when taken as a part of an approved graduate program. 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 courses numbered 699, Master's Research, and 799,
Doctoral Research, may be from 1 to 17 credits in one quarter. Advisers
should assign the number of credits in these courses appropriate to each stu-
dent's research plan. Regarding the assignment 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 Fields of Instruction. 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.H.Ed.,
M.P.E., and Ed.S. For regulations governing the use and limits of off-campus
work on these degree programs, see the requirements for the specific degrees.
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, Master of Physical Education, and Master of Health Education. 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, C, and S (satisfactory).
Courses with the grades of D, E, U (unsatisfactory), I (incomplete), X
(absent from examination), EW (dropped for nonattendance or unsatisfactory
work), or WF (withdrew failing) cannot be used to satisfy any of the re-
quirements of a graduate degree. Grade points are determined by equating
the grade for each quarter hour as follows: A with 4, B with 3, C with 2, D
with 1, and E, I, X, EW, and WF with 0. Grade points are not designated for
S and U grades. Averages are computed by dividing the total number of
grade points earned by the total number of credits attempted at the University
of Florida. Hours for grades of S and U and hours for ASC 641, 642, and 643
are not considered in calculating a grade point average.









16 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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), and 799 (Doctoral Research). Additional
courses for which S and U grades apply are noted in departmental course
offerings.
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 (3.0) or higher both for all work attempted and for all 600- and
700-level work attempted in the major. Any grade of I or X must be removed
by completing all required work. Incomplete grades for nonrequired courses
may remain on a student's record (permanent) only if approved by the ap-
propriate department and college, and provided that an overall average of B
(3.0) is maintained, including incomplete grades.

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 to include failure to maintain an accumu-
lative grade average of B in all work attempted in the Graduate School at
the University of Florida.
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:
Those students wishing to be certified as proficient in a reading knowledge
of French, German, Russian, or Spanish will take the Graduate School For-
eign Language Tests administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS)
and given four 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. Students submit their applications and fees directly to
ETS, Princeton, New Jersey, by the dates listed in the University Calendar.
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










GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 17
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 special arrangement
with the foreign language departments. Information may be obtained at the
office of the Graduate School.

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 must pay the appropriate
fees for the Library permanent binding of two copies and for microfilming
the dissertation 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 Graduate School Theses and Publications office.
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.

AWARDING OF DEGREES
The Graduate Council will authorize a candidate to be granted the degree
appropriate to his course of study under the following conditions, the details
of which can be found under the descriptions of the several degrees:
1. The candidate must have met the residence requirement appropriate to
his degree.
2. The candidate must have completed all course requirements, including
an internship or practicum if required, in the major and minor fields, observing
the relevant limitations on transfer of credit, on nonresident work, and on the
level of course work.
3. He must have a grade average of B or above in all work attempted in
his graduate program.
4. He must have satisfactorily completed all required examinations: quali-
fying, comprehensive, and final.
5. All time limits must be observed, such as those affecting the date of
the qualifying examination, admission to candidacy, recency of credit, appli-
cation for a degree, and payment of fees.
6. If it is required, a thesis, dissertation, or equivalent project must have
been approved by the supervisory committee and accepted by the Graduate
School.
7. All language requirements, both for foreign languages and for compe-
tence in the use of English, must have been met.
8. The candidate must meet the professional and academic standards and










18 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
have the personal qualifications appropriate to his field, as judged by the
faculty of the relevant department.
9. The candidate must be recommended for the degree by his supervisory
committee, his major department, and his college.
10. All requirements for the degree must be met while the student is a
fully accepted graduate student (with the classification 7AS, 7ED, etc.) unless
a specific statement to the contrary is made elsewhere in this Catalog.
11. If a student has been in continuous attendance (defined as registration
in the Graduate School at least one quarter during each calendar year), he
may graduate according to the curriculum under which he entered, provided
the courses are still offered by the University.

ATTENDANCE AT COMMENCEMENT
Graduates who are to receive advanced degrees are urged to attend Com-
mencement in order to accept personally the honor indicated by the appro-
priate hood. The student must arrange through the University Bookstore for
the proper academic attire to be worn at Commencement.


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.
SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE.-The Supervisory Committee for a student who
is writing a thesis as part of his master's program must consist of at least two
members as described below under Master of Arts and Master of Science.
The committee for a student who is not writing a thesis may consist of one
member of the Graduate Faculty who advises the student and oversees his
program. If a minor is designated, the committee should include a representa-
tive from that field.
EXAMINATION.-A final comprehensive examination, oral, written, or both,
must be passed by the candidate. 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 during the first two weeks of the quarter










REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 19
in which he expects to graduate. 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.
University of Florida undergraduates who subsequently enroll in the
Graduate School may transfer a maximum of 10 quarter hours of 500-level
courses taken as an undergraduate only if ALL the following conditions are
satisfied: (1) The 500-level courses involved in the transfer must be in
excess of undergraduate degree requirements; (2) the 500-level courses
must be approved for graduate major credit; (3) the courses are taken in
the senior year; and (4) a written statement of intent to transfer such
500-level courses into a specific planned graduate program is approved by
the student's department chairman, college dean, and the Graduate School
prior to the award of the undergraduate degree.
TIME LIMITATION.-AIl work counted toward the master's degree must
be completed during the seven years immediately preceding the date on
which the degree is to be awarded.

MASTER OF ARTS AND MASTER OF SCIENCE
The requirements for the Master of Arts and the Master of Science
also apply to the following degrees, except as they are individually de-
scribed hereafter: Master of Arts in Architecture, Master of Arts in Edu-
cation, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Arts in Health Education, Master of
Arts in Journalism and Communications, Master of Arts in Physical Edu-
cation, Master of Arts in Teaching, Master of Science in Building Con-
struction, Master of Science in Forestry, Master of Science in Nursing,
Master of Science in Pharmacy, Master of Science in Statistics, and Master
of Science in Teaching.
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 8 credits
of work are required; two 8-credit minors may be taken. Minor work must
be in a department other than the major. In special cases this requirement










20 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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 half of the required
minimum of regular course work must be in courses numbered 600 and above.
THESIS.-Candidates for the master's degree with thesis are required to pre-
pare and present a thesis (or equivalent in creative work) acceptable to their
supervisory committees and the Graduate School. The candidate should con-
sult the Graduate School Theses and Publications office for instructions
concerning the form of the thesis. The original copy of the thesis, bound
with an abstract and accompanied by three separate copies of the abstract,
must be in the office of the Dean of the Graduate School on or before the
dates specified in the University Calendar. Two title pages should be in-
serted in the original and college copies. After the thesis is accepted, these
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.
SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE.-Upon the recommendation of the college con-
cerned, a supervisory committee composed of at least two members selected
from the Graduate Studies Faculty will be appointed for each student by the
Dean of the Graduate School. If a minor is designated, it should be represented
by one member of the committee. The committee 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 second quarter of study. The
Dean of the Graduate School is an ex officio member of all supervisory com-
mittees. The duties of the 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. Application for admission to candidacy for the










REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 21
master's degree should be made during the first two weeks of the term in
which the student plans to graduate.
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 (if it is required in
his curriculum), (3) chosen his thesis topic, (4) satisfied his supervisory com-
mittee, department chairman, and college dean that he is qualified to become
a candidate for his degree. It is the responsibility of his supervisory com-
mittee at this time to make such investigation 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 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
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.
NONTHESIS OPTION.-In certain majors, the Master of Arts and Master
of Science degrees may also be earned without the preparation of a thesis. The
minimum requirements for the nonthesis option are identical to those for the
degree with thesis except that the student need not write a thesis, but must
successfully complete 48 hours of regular course work (excluding credits for
which grades of S and U are given) and, within six months before his degree
is awarded, pass a comprehensive written examination on his major field of
study and on his minor if one is designated. Individual departments may have
additional requirements for the degree. The supervisory committee for a
nonthesis student may consist of one member of the Graduate Studies Faculty
if there is no minor, but must include a representative of the minor field
if one is designated. The duties of the committee are to advise the student,
to check on his qualifications and progress, and to conduct or participate in
conducting the comprehensive written examination.

MASTER OF ARTS IN TEACHING 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-










22 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 if required by the student's
major department.
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:
a. At least 28 credits in the major and 8 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, and credits thus made available may be used for
further work in the major, the minor, or in education.
c. At least three courses, which may be used as the minor, in educa-
tional psychology, sociology, and curriculum dealing with the junior
college. If any or all of these courses have been satisfactorily com-
pleted 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 ARTS IN ARCHITECTURE
The degree of Master of Arts in Architecture is the professional degree
for those students who wish to qualify for registration as an architect or for
the teaching profession. It is designed to prepare the student in one of the
specialized areas of architectural design, architectural history, architectural
structures, urban design, environmental systems, or historic restoration and
preservation.
The general requirements for the Master of Arts in Architecture are the
same as those for other Master of Arts degrees with thesis except that the
minimum registration required is 76 credits, including 9 credits in 699.
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.









REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 23

WORK REQUIRED.-A minimum of 48 credits of course work is required,
of which at least 24 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 BUILDING CONSTRUCTION
The Master of Building Construction degree is designed for those students
whose needs are better fulfilled by additional course work rather than the
preparation of a thesis.
WORK REQUIRED.-The student must complete 50 credits of course work,
of which at least 25 must be in the Department of Building Construction at
the 600 level. The remainder may be in other departments in courses at the
300 level or above or in this department in courses specifically approved for
graduate major credit. This remainder must be distributed in lots of no less
than 9 credits in order to constitute either one or two minor areas. There
is no foreign language requirement.

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









24 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 (5 credits) or its
equivalent. If the student presents the usual two-term introductory accounting
course, the foundation program will total a minimum of 9 courses.)
THE GRADUATE PROGRAM.-Each candidate for the M.B.A. is required
to complete required core courses and a concentration in a selected field.
The core courses, which account for between one-half and two-thirds of
the student's program, are designed primarily to equip the student with the
analytical concepts and techniques needed to deal competently with business
problems. Also included are a course in business research and a course
integrating the functional areas of business administration.
The concentration is selected from the following: Accounting, Finance,
Health and Hospital Administration, Insurance, Management, Marketing,
Quantitative Analysis for Business, and Real Estate and Urban Land Studies.
At least 20 credits including a 2-credit research course must be taken in
the concentration. A maximum of 9 credits earned as an undergraduate
may be counted toward the concentration, but credits so used do not count
toward the 51 graduate credits required for the degree. Any elective courses
will be selected from approved courses offered by the College of Business
Administration.
Information on specific course requirements as well as on all aspects
of the M.B.A. program may be obtained by contacting the Director of the
M.B.A. Program, College of Business Administration, Matherly Hall, University
of Florida.
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 apply for this concentration must communicate
directly with the Chairman of the Program in Health and Hospital Admin-
istration, who will arrange for a personal interview with members of a
faculty selection committee. Since the number of students accepted for each








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 25

class is limited, it may not be possible to consider applications submitted
after April 1. Students are accepted for the Fall Quarter only.
Foundation course requirements are the same for this concentration as
for all others. The curriculum consists of three phases. The first phase is
an academic period of four quarters. The second phase is a research prac-
ticum period of one quarter. The third phase is an administrative residency
period, usually off-campus, of two quarters.
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.

26 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
toward degree requirements provided they are appropriate to the program
planned for the degree.
TRANSFER OF CREDIT.-Nine hours of approved graduate credit may be
transferred from other institutions. This may be nonresidence credit only if
earned in courses offered by institutions in the Florida State University System.
No more than nine hours of credit from any source earned prior to admission
to Graduate School at the University of Florida may be counted toward the
Master of Education degree.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to candidacy is recommended to
the Graduate Council by the Graduate Committee of the College of Educa-
tion during the first two weeks of the quarter in which the student expects
to graduate. The student is responsible for filing application for admission to
candidacy with the Office of Graduate Studies in Education when approxi-
mately one-half of the course work is completed and not later than one
quarter prior to the completion of all requirements for the degree.
Evaluation of an application for admission to candidacy is based not only
upon the student's academic record but also upon personal qualifications ap-
propriate to his professional goals. On the basis of this evaluation a student
may be recommended for admission to candidacy, recommended with special
conditions or revisions of program, or denied admission and further registra-
tion as a graduate student.
With approval for admission to candidacy the student will be recommended
for the degree upon the satisfactory completion of the remainder of his
planned program.

MASTER OF ENGINEERING
A student seeking a master's degree in the field of engineering may be-
come a candidate for the Master of Engineering degree with or without
thesis, provided such a candidate has a bachelor's degree in engineering
from an ECPD accredited curriculum or has taken sufficient articulation
course work to meet the minimum requirements specified by ECPD. If a
student does not meet these requirements, he may become a candidate for
the Master of Science degree, provided he meets departmental requirements
for admission. The general intent in making this distinction is to encourage
those who are professionally oriented to seek the Master of Engineering
degree, and those who are more scientifically oriented and those who have
science-based backgrounds to seek the Master of Science degree.
WORK REQUIRED.-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. A minimum of 48 credits of course work is required, with
at least 24 credits in the student's major field for both of the above degrees
without thesis. At least 50 per cent of the required 48 credits must be in
courses numbered 600 and above. If a minor is chosen, at least 8 credits
of work are required; two 8-credit minors may be taken. In addition, a








REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 27

multidisciplinary minor in departments other than the major may be au-
thorized 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.
DEGREE CREDIT.-In order to qualify for course work toward the Master
of Engineering degree, a student must first be admitted to the Graduate School
at the University of Florida. The amount of course work toward this degree
that may be taken at an off-campus center will depend upon the student's
individual program and the courses provided through the center.
EXAMINATIONS.-A student seeking the Master of Engineering degree
with or without thesis is required to pass a comprehensive oral or written
examination at the completion of his course work. A student who takes
less than half his course work on the Gainesville campus will be required
to pass a comprehensive written examination administered on the University
of Florida campus by an examining committee recommended by the Dean
of the College of Engineering and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
School. At least one member of the examining committee must be either
the student's program adviser or a member of his supervisory committee.
If a minor is taken, another member must be chosen from outside the major
department to represent the student's minor.
Examination requirements for the Master of Science degree are covered
in the preceding section under Master of Arts and Master of Science.
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 sculpture.
The requirements of the M.F.A. are the same as those for the Master of
Arts 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.

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 Grad-
uate 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
should apply for admission to candidacy no later than the beginning of the
quarter in which he expects to graduate.
FINAL EXAMINATION.-The candidate must pass a final examination at
the close of his course work. This written or oral examination is confined
largely to the student's major field of study.

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. 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: general nursing, research, the functional area, electives,
and the clinical specialty area. At least 50 per cent of the minimum course
requirements must be in courses numbered 600 and above, and at least 50
per cent must be taken in the College of Nursing. There is no thesis or foreign
language requirement.
FINAL EXAMINATION.-Each student must pass a comprehensive written
or oral final examination during the final quarter of study. The examination
will be administered by a committee of three, with a member of the graduate
faculty of the College of Nursing as chairman. The examination will be con-
fined 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









30 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
in counseling in the fields of mental retardation, drug abuse, correctional
rehabilitation, cultural or other behavioral problems can utilize elective
courses plus certain clinical experiences to gain specialized knowledge and
skill. Traineeship grants for selected students are available. See Financial Aid.
WORK REQUIRED.-The minimum requirement is 70 credits, of which 46
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 to meet 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.
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 EXAMINATION.-Upon the satisfactory completion of all course work
including the practicum and internship, each student must take a final written
or oral departmental examination before 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 practical applications of working effectively with disabled individuals.

MASTER OF STATISTICS
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 re-
quired. The work in the major field must be in courses approved for graduate
major credit. For the minor, courses numbered 300 and above may be taken.
At least half the 54 credits in regular course work must be in courses num-
bered 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.


REQUIREMENTS FOR
THE 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.









REQUIREMENTS FOR ENGINEER DEGREE / 31
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 adminis-
tered by the College of Engineering, either in Gainesville or through GENESYS.
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 Studies Faculty. In 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 of thesis research in a course numbered 699. 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 for the major
or minor; each student is considered as a separate case.









32 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-The student must apply for admission to
candidacy no later than the beginning of the term in which he is to graduate.
If a thesis is required, the topic must also have been approved by his super-
visory 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 the student has completed all work on his
plan of study, the supervisory committee conducts a final comprehensive
oral or written examination, which also involves a defense of the thesis if
one is included in the program.


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE
ED.S. AND ED.D.

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: Adminis-
tration and Supervision, Curriculum and Instruction, Foundations of Educa-
tion, Counselor Education, and Special Education. The Specialist in Education
degree is awarded for a two-year program of graduate study. The Doctor of
Education 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. Further
information may be obtained from that office. Students are advised to
familiarize themselves with the various programs and requirements of their
department of specialization before applying to the Advanced School 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








REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ED.S. AND ED.D. / 33
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.
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 made
according to the above criteria 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 person applying
for admission are subject to the approval of the admissions committee.
All persons admitted to the Advanced School of Education must also
apply for and be admitted to the Graduate School of the University.

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 Counselor Education, the di-
vision of Curriculum and Instruction, and Special Education. The Florida
State Department of Education recognizes this degree for purposes of granting
Rank 1A certification.
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 planned program with
a minimum of 100 credits beyond the bachelor's degree. All credits accepted
for the program must contribute to the unity and the stated objective of the
total program. Students will be examined by a committee selected by the
department chairman to assure that this objective has been achieved. A
thesis is not required; however, each program will include continuing at-
tention to a research component relevant to the professional role for which
the student is preparing.
Students who enter the program with an appropriate master's degree









34 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


must meet the following requirements during the last 50 hours of the program:
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 and 9 hours from off-campus
courses offered by the University of Florida may be transferred to the program.
Students who enter the program with a bachelor's degree only must, during
their 100-credit program, satisfy these requirements in addition to the re-
quirements of the Master of Education degree or its equivalent. A student
who enters the program with a master's degree from another accredited
institution may have 45 credits accepted toward the 100-credit minimum
provided they are appropriate for the program he intends to pursue.

DOCTOR OF EDUCATION

A doctoral candidate is expected to achieve understanding of the broad
field of education and competence in the area in which he chooses to
specialize. Programs are available in the various areas of concentration
within the Departments of Administration and Supervision, Foundations of
Education and Counselor Education, the division of Curriculum and In-
struction, and Special Education.
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 24 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, Health, and Recreation 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 24 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.









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 35
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 a 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.
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.
RESEARCH PREPARATION REQUIREMENT.-EDF 760-Methods of Educa-
tional Research, or its equivalent, for which a basic course in statistics is a
prerequisite, is a minimum requirement in all programs. Additional require-
ments will vary with the department and with the student's plans for doctoral
research.
For information relating to Residence, the Supervisory Committee, Time
and Lapse Limitation, the Dissertation, and the Final Examination, the
student is referred to the material presented under the heading 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.









36 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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.
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. Competence in the minor area may be demon-
strated through a written examination conducted by the minor department
or through the oral qualifying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not be restricted to
the courses of one department, provided that the minor has a clearly
stated objective and that the combination of courses representing the minor
shall be approved by the Graduate School before registration beyond 6 credits
of course work applicable to the minor. This procedure is not required for a
departmental minor.

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE

Supervisory committees are nominated by the department chairman, ap-
proved 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 supervisory committees and
should be notified in writing well in advance of all examinations conducted
by such committees.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES.-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.









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 37
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
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 Doctoral
Research Faculty of the University of Florida.
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 has been
appointed to the graduate faculty. The Graduate Council desires each super-
visory committee to function as a university committee, as contrasted with a
departmental committee, in order to bring university-wide standards to bear
upon the various doctoral degrees.
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 of the Doctoral Research
Faculty. 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 Doctoral Research
Faculty.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
A Ph.D. student is required to demonstrate proficiency in a language other
than his native tongue. This language will normally be French, German,
Russian, or Spanish, the choice to be made by the supervisory committee.
A student may not, however, use a language in which he is majoring to
satisfy the language requirement. Proficiency in the language is to be demon-
strated in one of the following ways:
1. By satisfactory performance on the nationally administered Graduate
School Foreign Language Test of the Educational Testing Service,
which the student is encouraged to take before entering Graduate School
or as soon as possible thereafter.









38 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
2. By completing a fourth quarter of a foreign language with a grade of
A or B at the University of Florida.
3. For students with a native language other than English, by satisfactory
performance on the Test of English as a Foreign Language.
The language requirement must be met before the student can be admitted
to the qualifying examination.
The foreign language departments offer special classes for graduate students
who are beginning the study of a language. See the current Schedule of
Courses for the languages in which this assistance is available.
Some colleges or departments may have language requirements in addition
to the general requirement of the Graduate School. A student should consult
the chairman of his supervisory committee or his departmental adviser about
such requirements.
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. Candidates in the College of Agriculture may do
their research at certain branch stations of the University of Florida Agricul-
tural Experiment Station where adequate staff and facilities are available.
A quarter of residence is earned for every 15 credits of course, thesis, and
dissertation work (excluding courses numbered 697 and 698), except that no
more than 1 quarter's residence can be earned in a single quarter. Students
holding assistantships or employment of any kind are required to reduce their
study loads and consequently their residence credit, as indicated under Study
Loads.
PERIOD OF CONCENTRATED STUDY
The doctoral program also requires a period of concentrated study on the
Gainesville campus of the University of Florida. Normally this requirement
is satisfied by three consecutive quarters of full-time study beyond the master's
degree or an equivalent period of graduate study. Part-time study may be
used to satisfy the concentration requirement if (1) 45 credits are earned
in one calendar year, or (2) 52 credits are earned in six successive regis-
trations (either including or excluding summer registration).
Fulfilling the requirement for the period of concentrated study does not
automatically satisfy the residence requirement. In most cases, additional
quarters of residence credit must be accrued to satisfy this requirement.
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.









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE P.H.D. / 39
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 but cannot be taken before the language re-
quirement has been met. The examination, conducted by the 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 mem-
bers 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.
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 LAPSE.-Between the qualifying examination and the date 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.
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

Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to prepare and present a
dissertation that shows independent investigation and is acceptable in form and
content to his supervisory committee and to the Graduate School. Since all
doctoral dissertations will be published by microfilm, it is necessary that









40 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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. It must have an abstract bound with it and be accompanied by
four loose copies of the abstract.
PUBLICATION OF DISSERTATION.-All candidates for the Ph.D. and Ed.D.
degrees are required to pay the sum of $25 to Student Accounts, the Hub,
for microfilming their dissertations, and to sign an agreement authorizing
publication by microfilm.
COPYRIGHT.-The student may choose to copyright his microfilmed disser-
tation for a charge of $15 payable by a certified or cashier's check to
University Microfilms, Inc., attached to the signed Microfilm Agreement form.

FINAL EXAMINATION
After submission 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 and adherence to all
Graduate School regulations outlined above complete the requirements for
the degree.

EXPENSES

APPLICATION FEE
Each application for admission to the University must be accompanied
by an application fee of $15. Application fees are nonrefundable. Further
instructions will be found in the Admissions section of this Catalog.

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
permanent home in the State of Florida for at least twelve months imme-
diately preceding his current registration. If the student is an unmarried minor,
his parents or legal guardians must meet the foregoing residence requirements.
All other persons are non-Florida students. A written statement concerning
residence must be made under oath at the time of application for admission.
In determining Florida residence for the purpose of assessing fees, the
burden of proof is on the applicant. Under law an applicant can change his
place of residence from another state to the State of Florida only by actually









EXPENSES / 41

and physically coming into the state and establishing his residence with the
intention of permanently residing within the state. The legal residence of the
wife is that of the husband, and the legal residence of a minor is that of his
parents or legal guardian.
Non-Florida students may apply in writing for reclassification after they
or, if minors, their parents have resided in Florida for twelve months, are
registered to vote in the state, and have filed a declaration of intent to
become residents of the state with the clerk of the Circuit Court in the
county of permanent residence. An alien must have resided in Florida for
twelve consecutive months and must present U.S. Immigration and Naturali-
zation certification that he is a resident alien. If the application is supported
by evidence satisfactory to the University that the student qualifies as a
Florida student, his classification 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
the Catalog must be published considerably in advance of its effective date, it is
not always possible to anticipate changes and the fee schedule may be revised.
Every effort will be made to publicize changes for any quarter in advance
of the registration date for that quarter.
Fees are payable on the dates listed in the Catalog or the date given on
the statement sent those participating in advance registration. Payment of
fees is an integral part of the registration process. Registration (including pay-
ment of fees) must be completed on or before the proper due date. Mail
payments must be received at Student Accounts, the Hub, by that date. All
payments, whether for full- or part-time students, received after the due
date are subject to a $25 late fee. The fees charged are based on the classifi-
cation of a student as Florida or non-Florida, full-time or part-time. Unless
otherwise noted, the fees for each quarter include fees for matriculation,
student health services, student activities, and a general building fee.
Fees are assessed graduate students as follows:
A FULL-TIME (9 credits or more) FLORIDA STUDENT will pay a fee of
$240 for each quarter for which he is enrolled.
A FULL-TIME (9 credits or more) NON-FLORIDA STUDENT will pay fees
of $590 for each quarter for which he is enrolled. ($240 registration plus
$350 non-Florida Fee.)
A PART-TIME FLORIDA STUDENT, enrolled for 8 credits or less, will pay,
per quarter, a fee of $20 per credit. He will not be entitled to student activity
or infirmary privileges.
A PART-TIME NON-FLORIDA STUDENT, enrolled for 8 credits or less, will
pay, per quarter, a fee of $47 per credit ($20 plus $27). He will not be
entitled to student activity or infirmary privileges.
Minimum graduate registration is 1 credit.










42 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

GRADUATE ENGINEERING EDUCATION SYSTEM (GENESYS)
A student enrolled in GENESYS will pay a fee of $60 per credit. The
maximum fee is $375.

REFUND OF FEES
Fees will be refunded under certain conditions upon presentation at Student
Accounts, the Hub, of a Registration Status form issued by the Registrar and
the current Certificate of Registration. No refund will be made under this
policy except upon proper application.
A full refund of tuition, registration, and instructional fees will be made
if a student withdraws from the University or if his registration is cancelled
by the University on or before the final day of the drop-and-add period.
No refund will be made if the student withdraws after the final day of the
drop-and-add period.
Commensurate refunds will be made to part-time students.
Deductions will be made from refunds for unpaid accounts due the Uni-
versity.

PAST DUE STUDENT ACCOUNTS
All student accounts are due and payable at Student Accounts, the Hub,
when charges are incurred.
Delinquent accounts will be considered sufficient cause for cancellation of
registration, as University regulations prohibit registration, graduation, granting
of credit, or release of transcript for any student whose account with the
University is delinquent.

TRAFFIC AND SAFETY REGULATIONS

All students must register their automobiles or motorcycles at the Univer-
sity Traffic and Parking Department during their first registration period at
the University. There is a fee for registration and a schedule of fines for on-
campus vehicle violations. A complete set of rules governing traffic, parking,
and vehicle registration may be secured at the Traffic and Parking office,
Room 108B, Johnson Hall. Each student should familiarize himself with
these regulations 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.
Housing agreements for all single students are for the agreement year of
four quarters (September to August), if enrolled.










44 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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. Inquiries
about private housing accommodations should be addressed to the Off-Campus
Housing Office, Division of Housing, University of Florida, Gainesville 32601.
An application for housing may be filed at any time after application for
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 Beaty 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 $175 per student.

FACILITIES FOR FAMILIES
The University operates five apartment villages for married students or
divorced or widowed students with dependent children. To be eligible to apply
for and occupy apartment housing on-campus, the following 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, or divorced or widowed students with
dependent children. No relatives or housekeepers can be included as part









HOUSING / 45
of the family unit. In view of the limited size of on-campus apartments, ap-
plications from families having more than four children cannot be accepted.
The married, widowed, or divorced student must be part of a family with
a combined gross annual income (including grants-in-aid, scholarships,
fellowships, and grants) which does not exceed, during the period of occu-
pancy, the following maximum income limitations:
2 Persons 3 & 4 Persons 5 & 6 Persons

Since on-campus apartments are intended to provide relatively low-
cost housing for married students, a family with a combined gross annual
income in excess of the above scale cannot apply for or occupy an apart-
ment except in unusual circumstances. Exceptions may be granted only by
the Committee on Student Housing.
Residents in all villages must furnish their own linens, dishes, rugs, curtains,
and similar items. With the exception of University Village, utilities are not
included in the rent rates.
FLAVET VILLAGE III, of temporary frame construction, will be phased out
by January, 1974.
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. Rent rates (subject to change) are currently
$65, $75, and $85 per month. Applications for the three-bedroom units may
be made by current residents only.
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 $65 and $75 per month for one- and two-

all utilities.

OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING
The Off-Campus Housing Office maintains extensive records on apart-
ments, houses, rooming units, trailers, and trailer park lots offered for rent









46 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
to students, faculty, and staff members. It compiles an annual Compre-
hensive List of major apartment developments, rooming houses, and trailer
parks accepted by it for referral. This list will be sent upon request to
anyone who has completed a Request for Assistance with off-campus hous-
ing. In addition to the units contained in the Comprehensive List, the
Office has on record several hundred units in small establishments to which
referrals are made after notice of availability is received from the owners.
Since mutally satisfactory rentals can usually be arranged only after
personal inspection of facilities and conference with the owners, persons
seeking off-campus housing are advised to come to Gainesville at an appro-
priate time in advance of the term for which they need housing. Such
visits should be made on week days-not on weekends or holidays-and
after advance information has been secured. Appointments may be made for
consultation on particular problems.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES
As the leading institution of higher education in the state, the University
of Florida has long been aware of Florida's unique international position.
By the beginning of this century, the University had begun to focus its atten-
tion on the Latin American nations. Advanced degrees were given in Latin
American studies as early as 1927, and by the midcentury a School of Inter-
American Studies had been formed.
During the last two decades, the University of Florida's commitment to in-
ternational studies has expanded rapidly. This expansion has resulted in the
creation of a Center for Latin American Studies, a Center for African Studies,
a Center for Tropical Agriculture, a program in International Relations,
and an English Language Institute for speakers of other languages. Programs
in Asian Studies, Soviet and East European Studies, and West European Studies
have been added to the undergraduate curriculum. The University of Florida
has participated in programs of assistance and development in many major
areas of the world: Africa, South America, Central America, and Southeast
Asia. There has also been a corresponding increase in the number of faculty
members involved in teaching and in research within the field of international
studies.
The expansion of efforts in these directions represents a conviction on the
part of the University that today's students must be aware, in more than a
superficial way, of developments and trends outside our national boundaries if
they are to live in a world of peace and harmony. International education is
essential for the citizenry and leaders of the twenty-first century-the students
of today.

LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES
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 or area courses, or 9 credits of Latin American area
courses and a reading knowledge of a Latin American language which is ac-
ceptable to the department in which the major is taken.
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 21 credits consisting primarily of Latin American language or
area courses in one department, which may be food and resource economics,
anthropology, economics, Romance languages (Spanish and Portuguese), geog-
raphy, history, political science, and sociology; (b) 18 credits of Latin Ameri-









52 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
can language or area courses in at least two other departments; (c) a thesis on
a Latin American topic for which up to 9 credits are given through registration
in LA 699; (d) a reading, writing, and speaking knowledge of a Latin Ameri-
can language. The M.A. in Latin American Studies is intended primarily as a
terminal degree for persons who, initially in their graduate program, are not
aiming at a teaching career in traditional academic departments but who re-
quire a broad knowledge of Latin American cultures and appropriate language
competence for their career objectives. It is so structured, however, that students
may move directly from it into departmental Ph.D. programs without inter-
rupting their academic progress.
MASTER'S DEGREE WITH CERTIFICATE IN LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES.-
Through agreement with the Center, the departments named in the preceding
paragraph permit a Latin American concentration in the major and minor
fields. A Certificate in Latin American Studies may be awarded to students
who complete the master's program in one of the participating departments
and meet the following requirements: (a) 30 credits in the major department;
(b) a 9-credit minor in another department; (c) a thesis on a Latin American
topic, for which 9 credits are given; (d) a reading knowledge of a Latin
American language.
A Certificate may also be awarded to those students in a department per-
mitting the master's degree without thesis who meet the following require-
ments: (a) departmental requirements for the major and minor; (b) 18 hours
of Latin American content courses divided between at least two disciplines;
(c) 54 credits of graduate course work; (d) a reading knowledge of a Latin
American language. In choosing area courses, the student should work closely
with the graduate coordinator of the Center for Latin American Studies. Only
those courses specifically approved by the coordinator will be counted toward
the required 18 hours of Latin American concentration.
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 food and re-
source economics, anthropology, economics, education, geography, history,
political science, sociology, and Spanish. Requirements for the certificate are:
(a) Latin American concentration within the major department; (b) an area
minor of at least 30 credits consisting principally, if not exclusively, of Latin
American language and area courses in two or more departments outside the
major and including at least 5 credits of LA 640, Latin American Area Sem-
inar; (c) a dissertation on a Latin American subject; (d) a reading, speaking,
and writing knowledge of one Latin American language and a reading knowl-
edge of another; (e) residence in Latin America normally of at least six
months' duration and devoted primarily to dissertation research.
GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS AND ASSISTANTSHIPS.-NDEA Title VI Latin

the social sciences, but increasing attention is being given to the environmental
sciences and to literature. In terms of region, they are strongest in the Carib-
bean and circum-Caribbean, but Brazilian materials are being augmented
rapidly.
OTHER ACTIVITIES.-The Center sponsors conferences on Latin American
topics and problems; supports publication of scholarly books, monographs,
and papers; and cooperates with other University units in organizing and
conducting developmental programs in Latin America.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the Center should
be addressed to the Director, Center for Latin American Studies, Graduate
School and International Studies Building, University of Florida, Gainesville,

Title VI of the National Defense Education Act, is responsible for the direction
and coordination of interdisciplinary instructional and research activities re-
lated to Africa, south of the Sahara. It cooperates with departments in admin-
istering and staffing a coordinated Certificate Program in African Studies.
This program provides a broad foundation for students preparing for teaching
or other professional careers in which a knowledge of African affairs is
essential.
GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMS.-The African Studies Center does not offer
interdisciplinary graduate degrees. With the cooperation of its participating
departments, it offers a Certificate in African Studies in conjunction with
the M.A. and Ph.D. degree.

bound and southbound channels connecting the Gainesville campus with
satellite campuses at Orlando, Port Canaveral, West Palm Beach, and Florida
Atlantic University at Boca Raton. Full-scale courses are offered, and
lectures may originate and be transmitted from studios located at any of
these sites. Although primarily designed to meet the need of engineers in
industry who cannot attend courses in Gainesville, graduate students pur-
suing 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.









56 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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.
Two training sequences are outlined here:
MANAGEMENT SEQUENCE.-Adviser for the major field is in the Depart-
ment of Political Science. Training in this area leads to positions in city
manager government 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 public finance), accounting, or other areas.
GOVERNMENTAL PLANNING SEQUENCE.-Adviser is in the Department of
Political Science. Training in this area is offered leading to positions in local,
state, and federal government planning agencies. The curriculum consists of
seminars in planning, public administration, and public law and recommended
courses in statistics, economics, sociology, geography, or food and resource
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 requires 9 credits of research.

URBAN PROBLEMS
A comprehensive curriculum concentrating on urban problems, leading to
the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, is offered through the Department of Political
Science. The program includes work in two fields in political science for the
M.A. degree and in at least three fields in political science for the Ph.D.
degree. A composite minor is specified for this curriculum and may include
both substantive and methodological courses in urban-related areas of the
other social sciences as well as fields such as statistics, systems engineering,
and architecture. All other requirements, such as the core courses in meth-
odology and the foreign language, remain the same as those for the regular
M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in political science. Coordination with the
Urban Studies Bureau is a necessary part of this program.

BIOPHYSICS PROGRAM
Biophysics is an interdisciplinary program of graduate studies and re-
search within a number of departments in the Colleges of Agriculture, Arts
and Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The Biophysics Council is re-
sponsible for directing and coordinating graduate training and other aca-
demic activities related to biophysics within the University. Each graduate
student must qualify within the participating departments. The Council then
provides individual guidance for each student and a biophysics core cur-
riculum. The master's or doctoral degree is offered by the participating de-
partment. Certification of biophysical studies is provided by the Graduate
Council at the recommendation of the Biophysics Council, in conjunction
with the Ph.D. degree within each participating department. This is a newly
developing interdisciplinary field, and at present the following departments
have either approved graduate studies in this area or are participating in
the program: Biochemistry, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical
Engineering, Entomology, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Physics,
and Zoology.
For additional information write the Chairman of the Biophysics Council,
Department of Physics, or the representative of the Biophysics Council in
any of the above departments.
THE CENTER FOR ALLIED HEALTH INSTRUCTIONAL PERSONNEL
The Center for Allied Health Instructional Personnel is a project jointly
sponsored by the Colleges of Education and Health Related Professions
under the terms of a grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
Persons who desire to enroll in graduate programs for the master's or
doctor's degree as preparation for careers in teaching or administration in
the allied health professions should possess (a) a baccalaureate degree, (b)

sidered include (but are not limited to): Medical Technology, Nursing,
Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy. Persons who lack clinical
backgrounds but who desire to prepare themselves for positions of leader-
ship in the allied health professions may also apply.
A limited number of students may receive financial aid from CAHIP.
Inquiries regarding financial aid and requests for further information should
be directed to the Director, Center for Allied Health Instructional Per-
sonnel, Norman Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville 32601.
NUCLEAR SCIENCES
The program in Nuclear Sciences is organized along the line usually
characteristic of an institute. Like an institute the program in Nuclear
Sciences cuts across college and departmental lines in order to facilitate
interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches to problems in the nu-
clear field and to enable the application of nuclear techniques to research
problems of other disciplines in the physical and life sciences.
The program was organized in 1957 and was designed to make it
possible for the University to have specialized nuclear equipment and
laboratories which would be useful to many departments but which are
too large and expensive for any single college or department to justify. The
program in Nuclear Sciences is organized to facilitate cooperative work
and to strengthen and encourage the nuclear specialties in agriculture,
biology, chemistry, dentistry, engineering, medicine, and physics.
A majority of the disciplines represented in the Nuclear Sciences Pro-
gram are housed in the Nuclear Sciences Building, the Reactor Building,
the Reactor Building Annex, or the Nuclear Field Building. Exceptions are
the radiation biophysics and whole-body counter programs and portions of
the radiation biology program which are in the J. Hillis Miller Health Center.

of West Indian and Caribbean materials, is housed in Library East.

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 dual responsibility as the State Museum of Florida and
as the 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. Members of the scientific and
educational staff of the Museum hold dual appointments in appropriate
teaching departments. Through these appointments they participate in both
the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs.
Graduate assistantships are available in the Museum in areas emphasized
in its research programs.
The Museum is located at the corner of Museum Road and Newell Drive
in a modern facility completed in 1970. The public halls are open from nine-

no admission charge.
The research collections are under the care of curators who encourage the
scientific study of the Museum's holdings. Materials are constantly being
added to the collection both through gifts from friends and as a result of
research activities of the Museum staff. The archaeological and ethnological
collections are noteworthy. There are extensive study collections of birds,
mammals, mollusks, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and invertebrate and vertebrate
fossils. Opportunities are provided for students, staff, and visiting scientists
to use the collections. Research and field work are presently sponsored in
the archaeological, paleontological, and zoological fields. Students interested
in these specialties should make application to the appropriate teaching
department.

ORGANIZED RESEARCH / 63
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA MONOGRAPH SERIES
The Graduate School sponsors two monograph series devoted to the pub-
lication of research primarily by present and former members of the scholarly
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, language and literature, music, philosophy, and religion.

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 Division Director.
Subsequent 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, are designed to supplement the prerogative of the
principal investigator to seek sponsors for his own projects and the responsi-
bility of the researcher for the scientific integrity of a project. In direct con-
tacts between a principal investigator and a potential sponsor, however, prior
clearance 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
Division Director within the general framework of the administrative policies
and procedures of the University. The Research Council serves as adviser on
scientific matters. The Dean of the Graduate School and the Graduate Council
serve as advisers on matters relating to the graduate program.
THE AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATIONS are responsible for research
leading to the improvement of all phases of Florida's widely varied agricul-
tural production, processing, and marketing. The stations are administered
from the University of Florida campus by the Dean for Research and in-
clude main station departments as well as Agricultural Research and Edu-









64 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
cation Centers 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
Stations are also members of the faculty of the College of Agriculture as
are some in the Cooperative Extension Service and the Center for Tropical
Agriculture. These three agricultural units of the University of Florida In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural Sciences work cooperatively in many areas
under the administration of the Vice President for Agricultural Affairs.
Funds for graduate assistants are made available to encourage graduate
training and professional scientific improvement.
Research at the main station is conducted within 18 areas-Agricultural
Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Science, Botany, Dairy Science, Entomology
and Nematology, Food and Resource Economics, Food Science, School of
Forest Resources and Conservation, Fruit Crops, Microbiology, Ornamental
Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Poultry Science, Soils, Statistics, Vegetable
Crops, and Veterinary Science. In addition to the above, the main station
has four units vital to its research programs; namely, editorial, library, field
services, and business service.
The Agricultural Research Centers are located at Monticello, Brooks-
ville, Ft. Pierce, Immokalee, Dover, Ft. Lauderdale, Hastings, Ona, Apopka,
Marianna, Live Oak, Leesburg, Lakeland, Jay and Ocala.
The locations of the Agricultural Research and Education Centers are
at Homestead, Belle Glade, Bradenton, Lake Alfred, Quincy and Sanford.
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations are 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 National Weather Bureau, Lakeland, in the Federal Frost
Warning Service for fruit and vegetable producers and shippers.
THE FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERIMENT STATION devel-
oped 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.
Since the fall term of 1967, seven departments of the College of Engi-
neering and the Experiment Station have moved into some 310,000 sq. ft. in
seven modern new buildings and one remodeled building. These improvements,
including equipment, have raised the value of the physical plant of the college
to over $13 million.









ORGANIZED RESEARCH / 65

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
neutron physics, nuclear rocket propulsion, dynamics and vibrations, commu-
nications, kinetics, ionics, gaseous electronics and plasmas, computer and
information science, and systems analysis, to name a few.

INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH CENTERS
The University of Florida is developing a number of interdisciplinary re-
search centers whose primary responsibility will be to increase knowledge in
specific fields of study and to apply the knowledge so gained to solve crucial
problems that society now faces. Among the centers that are already estab-
lished or whose development is in an advanced stage of planning are the
following:
THE BUREAU OF RESEARCH is one of the activities of the College of
Architecture 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
students and faculty members to engage in research and cooperate effectively
in research with other departments and institutions.
THE BUREAU OF ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS RESEARCH is the research divi-
sion 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
Southeast. Economic, business, and related research supported by grant and
contract funds is undertaken in subject areas of interest to the faculty. Grad-
uate students are involved also in these projects.
The Bureau publishes two monthly periodicals: Dimensions and Economic
Leaflets. Through these publications and through monographs, the Bureau
disseminates the results of research and statistical studies of personal income,
population, construction, retail sales, employment, and the activities of com-
mercial banks and savings and loan associations.
THE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION CLEARING SERVICE is a research and service
adjunct of the Department of Political Science in the College of Arts and
Sciences. It carries on a continuous program of research in public adminis-









66 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
tration, political behavior, and public policy in Florida; publishes research
studies and surveys of administrative and political problems in both scientific
and popular monograph form; and publishes a Civic Information Series
annually for assistance to citizen groups in their study of current issues in
the state.

THE INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS is a research agency ad-
ministered through the Department of Political Science to conduct studies in
international relations.

THE COMMUNICATION RESEARCH CENTER OF THE COLLEGE OF JOURNALISM
AND COMMUNICATIONS conducts research in the news media, broadcasting, ad-
vertising, and public opinion.

THE FLORIDA WATER RESOURCES RESEARCH CENTER was established in
1964 as the result of the passage of P.L. 88-379-The Water Resources Re-
search Act of 1964-"to stimulate, sponsor, provide for, and supplement
present programs for conduct of research, investigation, experiments, and the
training of scientists 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 committee composed of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the
deans of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Law, the Dean
for Research of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and the
Director of the Division of Sponsored Research.

THE HEALTH SYSTEMS RESEARCH DIVISION is an interdisciplinary activity
organized 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 supported by the state or by
research grants from outside sources, projects are conducted on a contract
basis for health organizations and agencies outside the University.

THE CENTER FOR AERONOMY AND OTHER ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES (ICAAS)
is a community of scholars drawn from many disciplines represented at the
University of Florida. Each scholar has an established professional knowledge
and research capability in the atmospheric sciences or in physical, biological,
or societal disciplines that relate closely to our atmospheric environment. As
an interdisciplinary center, ICAAS promotes pure and applied research in the
atmospheric sciences and provides machinery for translating research into









ORGANIZED RESEARCH / 67
forms relevant to societal needs. The aeronomical research of the Center deals
with physical, chemical, and electrical processes in the upper atmosphere, e.g.,
the stratospheric, ionospheric, and thermospheric regions of the earth. Other
activities include a diverse range of tropospheric and micrometeorological
research as well as biological, ecological, and technological research related
to the quality of the air we breathe. These activities are dispersed widely in
the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Law, and Agricul-
ture. The primary function of ICAAS is to provide coordination, direction,
and focus to strengthen existing programs and to expand them in directions
that will help mitigate the socio-technical problems arising from the degrada-
tion of our atmospheric environment. ICAAS will also help the training of able
students at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels in various
pure and applied aspects of the atmospheric sciences. For information write

Specific services include career planning and guidance, counseling on the
tools and techniques of the job search, arranging interviews between employers
and students, providing personnel records and faculty ratings on students to
employers, preparing and mailing lists of job opportunities to registrants,
distributing recruitment booklets and materials, and administering tests for
employers.
THE UNIVERSITY COUNSELING CENTER provides psychological services to
the members of the student body and consultative services for University staff
members who counsel students. It also provides a practicum for graduate
students in the Departments of Psychology and Counselor Education. It engages
in institutional as well as basic research in the problems of counseling. Specific
services include vocational, personal, marriage, and academic counseling.
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 University.

THE STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE provides a spectrum of medical services
which includes primary medical care, preventive medicine, health screening
programs and mental health consultation and counseling. These services are
available to all full-time students in the University.
The service consists of an out-patient clinic and a 45-bed in-patient unit
staffed by physicians, nurses, psychologists, laboratory and x-ray technicians
and supporting personnel. It is housed in the Infirmary, which is centrally
located on the campus.
The service is a unit of the J. Hillis Miller Health Center with its Colleges
of Medicine, Nursing, and Health Related Professions. The facilities of the
Health Center are available by consultation and referral through the Student
Health Service. Specialty clinics are available in the Infirmary in some fields.
The health fee is a part of the tuition fee paid by all students. This fee
covers ordinary out-patient visits, many laboratory tests and some medi-
cations. When more complicated diagnostic study or hospitalization is re-
quired, additional charges are made. For this reason, a supplemental health
insurance plan is recommended.
A medical history and physical examination and certain immunizations
are required before registration at the University.
THE SPEECH AND HEARING CLINIC, Room 436, Arts and Sciences Building,
offers 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 Clinic and to use this service.
THE GRADUATE SCHOOL EDITORIAL SERVICE provides informational ma-
terials to assist the student in the preparation of the thesis or dissertation,









72 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
and offers suggestions and advice on such matters as the preparation and
reproduction of illustrative materials, the treatment of special problems, the
use of copyrighted material, and how to secure copyright for a dissertation.
The following procedures apply to the Graduate School's editorial services
to students:
1. The responsibility for acceptable English in a thesis or dissertation lies
principally with the student and his supervisory committee.
2. The Graduate School staff acts in an advisory capacity. It informs the
student concerning acceptable form, not content. The staff spot-checks
each dissertation for format, proper footnote form, pagination, and
general mechanics.
3. The Graduate School staff will 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 editorial office of the
Graduate School, the staff will examine a limited portion and make
recommendations concerning the form of the thesis or dissertation be-
fore it is put into final form.
