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 Graduate
School is responsible for the enforcement of minimum general standards of
graduate work in the University and for the coordination of the graduate
programs of the various colleges and divisions of the University. The
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 Department of Physics. In 1971,
Dr. Hanson was appointed Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Alexander
G. Smith, of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and a former assistant
dean of the Graduate School, served as acting dean until the appointment of Dr.









4/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

Harry H. Sisler. Dr. Sisler served as Chairman of the Department of Chemistry
for twelve years, as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and as Executive
Vice President of the University of Florida until he became Dean of the
Graduate School in March. 1973.
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 1930. 33 degrees were awarded in 12 fields. In 1940. 66 degrees were
,awarded in 16 fields. In 1971-1972 the total number of graduate degrees awarded
was 1,636 in more than 90 fields. The proportion of doctoral degrees has
increased steadily. In 1950, 18 Ph.D's and 5 Ed.D.'s were awarded. In 1971-1972
the total was 226 Ph.D.'s and 49 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 stipulated in
the University Calendar. The applicant must have a bachelor's degree from an
accredited college or university and should submit a score on the Aptitude Test
of the Graduate Record Examination. Applications which meet minimum
standards for admissions are referred by the Director to the graduate selection
committees 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 institution will be considered for
graduate study in any unit of the University.
The University encourages applications from qualified persons of all
cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups.

BOARD OF REGENTS' MINIMUM ADMISSION STANDARDS
The Board of Regents has established the following minimum standards for
first-time admission to a master's or doctoral degree program in the State
University System: a grade average of B or better for all upper-division
undergraduate work or a score of 1000 or higher on the Aptitude Test of the
Graduate Record Examination.
It must be emphasized that these are minimum admission standards for the
State University System, and at the University of Florida many colleges and
departments have established admission requirements above the minimum.
Therefore satisfaction of these criteria does not necessarily guarantee approval
for admission to graduate study at the University of Florida.


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 in 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
consider not only the general grade average, but the distribution of work and the
quality and extent of preparation for the graduate program the student proposes
to undertake.
In addition, performance on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE-see
next section) is used in evaluating an applicant, especially in cases where the









10/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 programs
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
Each applicant for admission must submit scores on the Aptitude Test of
the GRE, but, either at the request of the department concerned or on his own
volition, the applicant is encouraged to submit in addition the scores 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
universities throughout the country, and is administered by the University
Counseling 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









ADMISSION / 11
application 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 Admission
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 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 registration form. A final consideration cannot be granted a
foreign student's application for admission until his scores on this test are
received by: Admissions 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 TO POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
Postbaccalaureate students (classified 6) who have not been admitted to









12/ THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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
subsequently 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.
Students in the College of Education who desire postbaccalaureate
classification to obtain teacher certification must provide the college with a
clear statement of certification goals as part of the requirements for
admission. Interested students should contact the College Counseling Office,
134 Norman Hall, prior to applying for 6ED admission.

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

UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN GRADUATE COURSES
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 Veterans Affairs Office, 123
Tigert Hall, or the Veterans Administration Regional Office, P.O. Box 1437, St.
Petersburg, Florida 33700, well in advance of the date of registration.
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.









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 13

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), excep 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 presenting the
requirements for the degree he plans to take, and (3) the offerings and
requirements of his major department.
CONSULTATION WITH COLLEGE AND DEPARTMENT.-After the student has
been admitted to the Graduate School, but before his first registration, he should
consult the college and/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 engaged
in supervised research or teaching, except full-time employees, are encouraged
to 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
/4 time 12 15 5 20

34 time 30 8 5 13
full time 40 6* 0 6
*Including registration in one course only plus thesis research.









14/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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
V4-time assistants 12 credits
V3-time assistants 9 credits
1/2-time assistants 9 credits
4-time assistants 7 credits
Full-time assistants 3 credits
Any graduate student who is utilizing University facilities and/or faculty
time must register for an appropriate load and in no case for fewer than three
credits.

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
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses numbered 700 and
above are graduate courses primarily for advanced graduate students.
Students are urged to register for the course numbered 697, Supervised
Research, or 698, Supervised Teaching, whenever appropriate. These supervised
training experiences, under faculty guidance, are recognized as important and
valuable ingredients of the normal graduate education program. Registration for
these courses does not reduce other degree requirements.
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 percent 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 student'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 decide
which of these graduate courses shall be given in any quarter. The published
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


"m~'nT~-~~""'"""" ""'~~ '~'----' '--~









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS /15


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 Administration, 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 requirements 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.
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 appropriate 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 University orin
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 accumulative 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










16/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 required,
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 Foreign
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 accept 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 08540, by
the dates listed in the University Calendar.
Each of the ETS examinations requires 100 minutes and consists of two
separately timed parts. Designed to gauge mastery of the basic vocabulary and
structure of the languages, Section I contains 60 multiple-choice questions cast in
the foreign language of the test and requires 40 minutes of working time. Section II
measures the student's ability to read connected material in the broad area of his
specialization with satisfactory comprehension and moderate fluency. It contains
sets of passages in the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. At
the time of testing, the student will select the set that encompasses his particular
field of specialization. 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 his thesis is ready to be put in final form, the student should get
instructions from the Graduate School Theses and Publications office, and should
have the Records Room check his student folder to ascertain that all requirements
for graduation have been fulfilled.
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.
A student must be registered for an appropriate load (in no case fewer than three
credits) 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.

REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES

GENERAL REGULATIONS
COURSE REQUIREMENTS.-At least 50 percent 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










18/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 COM MITTEE.-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 representative 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 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 (600-700 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.-AII 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 described hereafter:
Master of Arts in Architecture, Master of Arts in Education, Master of Fine Arts,
Master of Arts in Health Education, Master of Arts in Journalism and
Communications, Master of Arts in Physical Education, Master of Arts in
Teaching, Master of Science in Agriculture, Master of Science in Building
Construction, Master of Science in Forestry, Master of Science in Nursing, Master









REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 19


of Science in Pharmacy, Master of Science in Statistics, and Master of Science in
Teaching.
COURSE REQUIREMENTS.-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 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 graduates
(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
prepare and present a thesis (or equivalent in creative work) acceptable to their
supervisory committees and the Graduate School. The candidate should consult
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. The college copy should be submitted to the college or department by the
specified date. Two title pages should be inserted in the original and college copies.
After the thesis is accepted, these two copies will be permanently bound and
deposited in the University Libraries.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS.-(1) The requirement of a reading knowledge 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
concerned, 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 committees. The duties of the supervisory










20/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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
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 grade average of B or above in all work
attempted in his graduate program and for all 600- and 700-level work in his major,
(2) passed a foreign language examination (if it is required in his curriculum), (3)
chosen his thesis topic, (4) satisfied his supervisory committee, department
chairman, and college dean that he is qualified to become a candidate for his degree.
It is the responsibility of his supervisory committee at this time to make such
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.









REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES / 21


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 leading to the M.A.T. and
the M.S.T. may, with proper approval, be incorporated into programs leading to the
Ph.D.
The requirements for the degrees are as follows:
1. A reading knowledge of one foreign language if required by the student's
major department.
2. Satisfactory completion of at least 54 credits of work while registered as a
graduate student; at least 50 percent 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 educational
psychology, sociology, and curriculum dealing with the junior college.
If any or all of these courses have been satisfactorily completed before
the program is begun, the credits thus made available may be used for
further work in the major, the minor, or in education.
3. At the completion of this degree, the student, for certification purposes,
must present from his undergraduate and graduate degree programs 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.
In some study areas, with permission from the departmental graduate faculty,
a terminal project requiring 9 credits in AE 629 may be elected in lieu of a thesis.

MASTER OF AGRICULTURE
The degree of Master of Agriculture is designed for those students who wish
additional training before entering business occupations or professions, rather than









22 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


for those interested primarily in research. The basic requirements, including those
for admission, residence, supervisory committee, plan of study, and admission to
candidacy, are the same as those outlined for the Master of Science in Agriculture
degree, but the work requirements conform to the specific objectives of the Master
of Agriculture degree.
WORK REQUIRED.-A minimum of 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 department,
and consist of courses strictly for graduates (600 level) or undergraduate
courses (500 level) approved by the Graduate Council for graduate 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 comprehensive
written qualifying examination, given by the supervisory committee, is
required one quarter prior to graduation. Failure to qualify in this examination
will require either the student's elimination from the program or additional
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
required.
This degree is awarded upon the completion of a foundation program of









REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES /23


8 courses and a graduate program of 51 credits. The foundation program may
be satisfied in whole or in part by appropriate undergraduate courses. A
student having an undergraduate degree in business administration will
normally need only 51 credits for the degree. He can, therefore, complete the
requirements for the degree in a calendar year.
FOUNDATION PROGRAM.-The foundation program must include a minimum
of 8 courses as follows:
Economic Principles 2 courses
Accounting I course
Quantitative Methods/Statistics I course
Business Law I course
Business Finance I course
Management I 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
Graduate School, students who apply for this concentration must communicate
directly with the Chairman of the Program in Health and Hospital
Administration, who will arrange for a personal interview with members of a









24/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


faculty selection committee. Since the number of students accepted for each
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 practicum
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
Administration concentration, are administered by an examining committee
appointed from the graduate faculty of the College of Business Administration.

candidacy with the Office of Graduate Studies in Education when approximately
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
appropriate 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 registration
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 become
a candidate for the Master of Engineering degree with or without thesis,
provided such a candidate has a bachelor's degree in engineering from an
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

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF
ENGINEER
Industry has found that engineers holding either the master's or doctor's
degree contribute significantly in highly sophisticated operational and
developmental projects and missions which require engineering teams with an
unusually high level of technical competence. Many of the projects and problems
require education beyond the master's level, especially for those engineers who
received their master's degree several years ago.
For those engineers who need additional technical depth and diversification in
their education beyond the master's degree, the College of Engineering offers the
degree of Engineer.









30/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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
approved 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 administered by
the College of Engineering. The last 45 quarter credit hours must be completed
within five calendar years.
SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE.-Each student admitted to the program will be
advised and counseled by a supervisory committee. The committee consists of
at least three members. At least two members are selected from the major
department and at least one from a supporting department. All committee members
will be members of the graduate faculty. In addition, every effort should be made to
have a representative from industry on each supervisory committee.
This committee will inform the student of all regulations pertaining to the
program. The committee is nominated by the department chairman, approved by
the Dean of the College of Engineering, and appointed by the Dean of the
Graduate 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 examination
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.
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 supervisory
committee.
THESIS.-The thesis should represent performance at a level above that
ordinarily associated with the master's degree. It should clearly be an original










REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ED.S. AND ED.D. /31


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: Administration and
Supervision, Curriculum and Instruction, Foundations of Education, 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.

2. Satisfactory scores on the Aptitude Test of the Graduate Record
Examination.
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 division
of Curriculum and Instruction, and Special Education. The Florida State
Department of Education recognizes this degree for purposes of granting Rank
IA 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 attention 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 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









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ED.S. AND ED.D./33


requirements 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 Instruction, 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
Education, 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.
Courses in physical education approved by the College of Physical
Education, 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 departments.
If two fields are included, there shall be no fewer than 8 credits in either field. If
three or more fields are included, the 8-credit requirement for each field does not
apply. This program must have the approval of the student's supervisory
committee. The College of Education faculty will expect the candidate to be
prepared to answer questions, at the time of his oral examination, in any of the
areas chosen.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY.-Admission to candidacy for the degree of
Doctor of Education rests on successful completion of the qualifying examinations
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)










34/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
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 recommended for
special reasons by his supervisory committee and approved by the Graduate
Council. At least one quarter of additional preparation is considered essential
before re-examination.
RESEARCH PREPARATION REQUIREMENT.-EDF 760-Methods of
Educational Research, or its equivalent, for which a basic course in statistics is a
prerequisite, is a minimum requirement in all programs. Additional requirements
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.
MINOR.-With the approval of his supervisory committee, the student may
choose one or more minor fields. Minor work may be completed in any department,
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 demonstrated through a
written examination conducted by the minor department or through the oral
qualifying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not be restricted to the
courses of one department, provided that the minor has a clearly stated objective
and that the combination of courses representing the minor shall be approved by the









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. /35
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,
approved by the dean of the college concerned, and appointed by the Dean of the
Graduate School. The committee should be appointed as soon as possible after the
student has begun doctoral work, and in general no later than the end of his third
quarter of equivalent full-time study. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex
officio member of all 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 completed
to review procedure, progress, and expected results, and to make
suggestions for completion.
6. To meet when the dissertation is completed to conduct the final oral
examination and to satisfy itself that the dissertation is a piece of original
research and a contribution to knowledge. No fewer than five faculty
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 doctoral
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 additional 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 representing 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.










36/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 supervisory committee to
function as a university committee, as contrasted with a departmental committee,
in order to bring university-wide standards to bear upon the various doctoral
degrees.
In unusual cases the doctoral research may require the guidance of a specialist
from an area of study other than that of the chairman of the supervisory committee.
In such cases the department chairman may recommend appointment of a chairman
and a co-chairman, with the latter being a member 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 demonstrated 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.
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 Coursesfor
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 Agricultural Experiment
Station where adequate staff and facilities are available.









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. /37
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 one 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 registrations (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 permitted 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.
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
requirement 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 members
must be present at the oral portion of this examination. The supervisory
committee has the responsibility at this time of deciding whether the student is
qualified to continue his work toward the Ph.D. degree.
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 additional
preparation is considered essential before re-examination.
An announcement of the scheduling of each student's qualifying
examination 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
qualifying 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










38/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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
requires the approval of the student's supervisory committee, the chairman of
his department, his college dean, and the Dean of the Graduate School. The
approval must be based on (1) the academic record of the student, (2) the
opinion of his supervisory committee concerning his overall fitness for
candidacy, (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 the
work be of publishable quality and that it be in a form suitable for publication.
The original copy of the dissertation must be presented to the 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.-AII 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 dis-
sertation 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 announcement of the
scheduled examination must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adherence to all Graduate
School regulations outlined above complete the requirements for the degree.









EXPENSES /39


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 immediately preceding
his current registration. If the student is an unmarried minor, his parents or legal
guardian 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 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, 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. In addition, the student must file with
the Registrar's Office a completed Residence Affidavit Form which is available in
the Registrar's Office. An alien must have resided in Florida for twelve consecutive
months and must present U.S. Immigration and Naturalization certification that he
is a resident alien. Those students who are nonresident aliens or who are in the
United States on a nonimmigration visa will not be entitled to reclassification.
However, for fee-paying purposes, Cuban nationals will be considered as resident
aliens. 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.
For more detailed information see the section in the Undergraduate Catalog
entitled "Classification of Students."

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

Commensurate refunds will be made to part-time students.
Deductions will be made from refunds for unpaid accounts due the University.

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 University
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.
Applications should be made as soon as possible.










42/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


FOR SINGLE GRADUATE STUDENTS.-Two modern, air-conditioned residence
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.

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 inquiries
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 individuals
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 application.

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
accommodating 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 sleeping. 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, including utilities
and linen rental, is $175 per student.

FACILITIES FOR FAMILIES

The University operates six apartment villages for married students or
divorced or widowed students with dependent children. To be eligible to apply for
and occupy on-campus apartment housing, 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










HOUSING /43


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 of
the family unit. In view of the limited size of on-campus apartments,
applications 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
occupancy, the following maximum income limitations.

UNIVERSITY VILLAGE SOUTH, CORRY, DIAMOND, SCHUCHT,
& FLAVET VILLAGES:
2 Persons 3 & 4 Persons 5 & 6 Persons
$7.640 $8,740 $9,890

UNIVERSITY VILLAGE:*
2 PERSONS 3 & 4 PERSONS 5 & 6 PERSONS
$6,400 $7,500 $8,650
'Income limits set by FHA
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 apartment 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.
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. Applications for the three-bedroom units may be made by
current residents only.
DIAMOND MEMORIAL VILLAGE consists of 208 apartments similar in
construction, 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.
UNIVERSITY VILLAGE, a married student housing development, consists of
220 centrally heated and air-conditioned one- and two-bedroom apartments.
Community facilities include a village store, laundry, and a large meeting room.
With the exception of kitchens equipped with stove and refrigerator,
individual apartments are not furnished.
UNIVERSITY VILLAGE SOUTH, the newest married student housing complex,
consists of 64 one-bedroom and 64 two-bedroom apartments. These are of the same









44/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

floor plan as the University Village Apartments. The same common facilities will be
shared by both complexes.
With the exception of kitchens equipped with stove and refrigerator,
individual apartments are not furnished.
OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING
The Off-Campus Housing Office maintains extensive records on apartments,
houses, rooming units, trailers, and trailer park lots offered for rent to students,
faculty, and staff members. It compiles an annual Comprehensive 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 housing. 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 mutually 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 appropriate 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.

FINANCIAL AID

Qualified graduate students in every department are eligible for a number of
fellowships, assistantships, and other awards. In general, such awards are available
to students pursuing either a master's or a doctoral degree. Unless otherwise
specified, all applications for financial support should be made to the chairman of
the appropriate department, University of Florida, by February 15 of each year.
Fellows and Graduate Assistants with at least one-fourth-time appointments
will pay registration fees of $240 per quarter. In addition, unless awarded a Tuition
Scholarship, Non-Florida students will be required to pay the non-Florida fee of

INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE STUDIES 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 attention 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
international 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










SPECIAL PROGRAMS /53


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.
As evidence of its commitment to international programs, the University
opened the $1.6 million federally funded Graduate School and International
Studies Building in January, 1971. The modern four-story building contains 50
faculty offices, 132 study cubicules, and 10 seminar rooms, as well as the offices
of the Graduate School and the Division of Sponsored Research. In addition, the
Secretariat of the Latin American Studies Association has moved its offices from
Washington, D.C., to the new GSIS building.
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.
THE AFRICAN STUDIES PROGRAM, established with financial assistance
under Title VI of the National Defense Education Act, is responsible for the
direction and coordination of interdisciplinary instructional and research
activities related to Africa, south of the Sahara. It cooperates with departments
in administering 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.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Studies with the Master of Arts
degree are (a) at least 24 credits of course work in a departmental major; (b) 12
credits of course work in at least two other departments; (c) a thesis on an
African topic; (d) two quarters of Swahili.
Requirements for the Certificate in African Studies with the doctoral degree
are (a) the doctoral requirements of the major department; (b) 27 credits of
African language or area course work in two or more departments outside the
major; (c) 5 credits in an area seminar; (d) a dissertation on an African topic
based on field work in Africa; (e) knowledge of a language appropriate to the
area of specialization.

THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE INSTITUTE offers a noncredit, nondegree program
in English as a second language for students with some knowledge of the
language who wish to increase their competence. The program, which may be
taken any quarter of the academic year, emphasizes the oral and written skills
needed by students who plan to attend a university in the United States. An
institutional administration of TOEFL is given near the end of each quarter.
Further information is available from the Director, English Language










54/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, a field of specialization leading to the M.A.
and Ph.D. degrees, is offered in programs through the Department of Political
Science. In addition to the M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in political science
which may emphasize international relations, the University offers an M.A. and
Ph.D. with a major in international relations. For the M.A. the requirements are
the same as for the M.A. in political science. For the Ph.D. the student has the
option of taking either 1) four fields of political science and a single or composite
minor, or 2) three fields of political science (plus two graduate courses in a
fourth field) and two minor fields or a composite minor.
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
acceptable 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,

American 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
American 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 require
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
interrupting 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 or in Latin American Demography and
Population Geography 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.

requirements: (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
participating departments, however, it does provide a Certificate in Latin
American Studies which is awarded in conjunction with Ph.D. degrees in food
and resource 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
Seminar; (c) a dissertation on a Latin American subject; (d) a reading, speaking,
and writing knowledge of one Latin American language and a reading knowledge
of another; (e) residence in Latin America normally of at least six months'
duration and devoted primarily to dissertation research.
A Certificate in Latin American Demography and Population Geography
may be earned in conjunction with Ph.D. programs in some of the departments
listed above.

related to the tropical environment and its development.
Graduate Program.-An interdisciplinary minor in tropical agriculture may
be planned at both the master's and doctoral levels by students majoring in
agriculture, forestry, and other fields where knowledge of the tropics is relevant.
The minor may include courses treating characteristics of the tropics: its soils,
water, vegetation, climate, agricultural production, and the language and culture
of tropical countries.
Research.-The Center provides research grants to faculty members and
their graduate students and assists in the coordination of interdisciplinary
research funded elsewhere. Development assistance contracts in agriculture and
related fields frequently have research components.
Student Support.-Students within the College of Agriculture and the
School of Forest Resources and Conservation pursuing a minor in tropical
agriculture are eligible for assistantships awarded by the Center through
academic departments.
Other Activities.-The Center seeks a broad dissemination of knowledge
about tropical agriculture through the sponsoring of conferences and seminars
featuring leading authorities on the tropics; publication of books, monographs,
and proceedings; and through acquisition of materials for the library and the
data bank.
THE ORGANIZATION FOR TROPICAL STUDIES (OTS) is a consortium of major
educational and research institutions in the United States and abroad, created to
promote understanding of tropical environments and their intelligent use by
man. The University of Florida is a charter member. Graduate field courses in

RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS

AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION CENTERS
The stations are responsible for research leading to the improvement of all
phases of Florida's widely varied agricultural production, processing, and
marketing. The stations are administered from the University of Florida campus
by the Dean for Research and include main station departments as well as
Agricultural Research and Education Centers operating as an integral
administrative unit. As a statewide agency having agricultural research as its
primary objective, each station cooperates closely with numerous Florida
agricultural agencies and organizations.









62/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 Institute 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, Soil Science, 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,

National Weather Service, Lakeland, in the Federal Frost Warning Service for
fruit and vegetable producers and shippers.

DIVISION OF SPONSORED RESEARCH
The Division 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 investigators
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 responsibility of the
researcher for the scientific integrity of a project. In direct contacts between a










SPICIAI, PROGRAMS /63


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 operation
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.


FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND EXPERIMENT STATION
The Station (EIES) developed from early research activities of the
engineering faculty and was officially established in 1941 by the Legislature as an
integral part of the College of Engineering. Its mandate is "to organize and
promote the prosecution of research projects of engineering and related
sciences, with special reference to such of these problems as are important to
the industries of Florida."
The college and the Station are inextricably intertwined-the two activities
cannot be separated functionally; they comprise the two arms of the whole
engineering body. This is particularly true at the graduate level. In many
instances 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 Engineering
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.
The laboratories, staff, and facilities of other divisions of the University are
also available to the Station research faculty through many outstanding
interdisciplinary 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
encompassed 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,










64/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


communications, kinetics, ionics, gaseous electronics and plasmas, computer
and information science, and systems analysis.
THE COASTAL AND OCEANOGRAPHIC ENGINEERING LABORATORY, a unit of
EIES, conducts research on problems of the shoreline and of coastal and inland
waters, and renders advisory service to public agencies and industry.
Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research and graduate instruction are
closely coordinated and related to applications of the coastal zone. Many
graduate students are supported by research programs of the COE Laboratory
which include (1) air-sea interaction and the generation of surface waves;
(2) scale models of inlets and shore structures; (3) transportation of sediment by
waves and currents; (4) wave and current effects at offshore nuclear power
plants; (5) water temperature variations near power-generating plants; (6) tidal
variations in inland waters; (7) littoral transport under wave action and many
others; (8) coastal defense measures.
Laboratory research facilities include (1) a large area for carrying out
hydraulic model studies of coastal phenomena; (2) an air-sea interaction facility
to investigate wave generation phenomena and wind-generated currents; (3) an
internal wave facility to investigate subsurface wave phenomena; (4) a wave
tank in which the effects of waves on structures, sand motion, etc., can be
investigated, and (5) a hydraulic tilting flume for basic studies of the interaction
of flows with sediments. Field investigations, representing a substantial portion
of the research effort, are supported by a mobile field station, three small boats,
and a complete range of tide recorders, current meters, sounding and other
auxiliary equipment.

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 medications.
When more complicated diagnostic study or hospitalization is required,
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.


SPEECH AND HEARING CLINIC
The 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.

EDITORIAL ASSISTANCE AND INFORMATION
The Graduate School provides informational materials to assist the student
in the preparation of the thesis or dissertation, 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.
I. The responsibility for acceptable English in a thesis ordissertation, as
well as the originality and acceptable quality of the content, lies with the
student and his supervisory committee.
2. The Graduate School editorial staff acts only in an advisory capacity, but
will be glad to answer questions regarding correct grammar, sentence
structure, and acceptable forms of presentation.
3. If the student will bring his final 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 before
the final typing.
4. After the initial submission of the dissertation in its final form, the
Graduate School staff checks the format, paper stock, and pagination and









72/THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

scans portions of the text for general mechanics such as consistency of
usage and proper footnotes, references, and bibliographical form.
Master's theses are checked for paper stock, format, and pagination.
5. Upon final submission, the signature pages and Final Examination forms
for all theses and dissertations are checked against the Application to
Candidacy forms for the signatures of the college dean (except for the
Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Business Administration which require a
special statement on the signature page) and all members of the
supervisory committee. It is the responsibility of the student and his
supervisory chairman to notify the Graduate School in writing of any
changes which have been made.
