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 (GSF), who are appointed to teach
graduate courses and to direct master's theses, and the Doctoral Research Faculty
(DRF), 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. 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










4 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 1973-1974
the total number of graduate degrees awarded was 1626 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 1973-1974 the total was 247 Ph.D.'s and 63 Ed.D.'s

8 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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. In some departments, the
deadlines for application for admission may be earlier than those stipulated in the
University Calendar; prospective students should check with the appropriate
department concerning this possibility. Applicants 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 standards for the State
University System, and that at the University of Florida, the Graduate School and
many colleges and departments have established admission requirements above the
minimum. Therefore, satisfaction of the Board of Regents' criteria does not
guarantee approval for admission to graduate study at the University of Florida.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department, the prospective student
must satisfy the admission requirements of the department as well as those of the
Graduate School. Prospective students should contact the appropriate department
for specific information on admission requirements. In some departments, the
available space and facilities limit the number of students that can be admitted.

UNDERGRADUATE RECORD

Unqualified admission to the Graduate School is 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.


1









ADMISSION / 9


In addition, performance on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE-see
next section) is used in evaluating an applicant, especially in cases where the
undergraduate average is slightly below B or includes a large number of
nontraditional grades.
Prospective students should contact the department in the field of their interest
to ascertain whether there are exceptions to the general rules above.
While the general admissions requirements described above apply to both
master's and doctoral candidates, it should be noted that doctoral candidates must
meet certain additional requirements which vary according to the 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.
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 application for
admission is otherwise complete and all his credentials have been received in the
Office of the Registrar.
The Miller Analogies Test, given at about 250 colleges and universities
throughout the country, is administered by the Psychological and Vocational
Counseling Center, Room 311, Little Hall, throughout the calendar year at 3:00
P.M. on Tuesday and Wednesday. Special appointments can be made by contacting
the Psychological and Vocational Counseling Center. The cost of the test, $4,
should be paid to Student Accounts, the Hub, and the receipt should be presented
at the time of testing.









10 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 four times a year-November, January, March, and
July- 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 students are required to submit satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record
Examination for admission to the Graduate School. Foreign students whose native
tongue is not English, except students applying for admission to the Master of
Business Administration program, who apply for admission to the Graduate School
must also submit scores on the 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 made on a foreign student's application for
admission until scores on the TOEFL are received by Admissions Section, Office of
the Registrar, University of Florida.
Students educated in foreign countries who apply for admission while residing
outside the United States may be granted a postponement of the Graduate Record
Examination (GRE), but not the TOEFL, until the first quarter of attendance at
the University of Florida. Permission to register for a second quarter will depend
upon the completion of the Graduate Record Examination.
Foreign students applying for admission to the Master of Business Administra-
tion program must submit satisfactory scores from either the Graduate Record
Examination or the Admission Test for Graduate Study in Business (ATGSB)
before their application for admission can be considered. The Admission Test for
Graduate Study in Business is recommended.
Foreign students who have studied at an American college or university for one
year or more must take the GRE and submit scores before their application for
admission can be considered.

CONDITIONAL ADMISSION

A student may be given conditional admission to the Graduate School to
ascertain his ability to pursue graduate work successfully in cases where his
previous grade record or GRE scores are on the borderline of acceptibility.
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 must notify
the student in writing and send a copy of the notification to the Graduate School.
Work taken while a student is in conditional status may be applied toward a
graduate degree.

ADMISSION OF POSTBACCALAUREATE STUDENTS
Postbaccalaureate student classification (6-) is available for any of the
following reasons: (1) to accommodate students who are required to register for










ADMISSION /I 1


undergraduate courses to validate the interpretation of undergraduate records from
nonaccredited and unevaluated colleges; (2) to provide a means for students not
seeking graduate degrees to enroll in courses after receiving a bachelor's degree.
Included in this category would be students who change their professional goals or
wish to expand their academic background; and (3) to accommodate students who
do intend to enter a graduate program at some future date, but need a substantial
number of basic prerequisite courses.
Postbaccalaureate students who have not been admitted to the Graduate School
may take graduate courses, but the work so taken will not normally be transferred
to the student's graduate record if he is 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.


UNDERGRADUATE REGISTRATION IN GRADUATE COURSES
With the permission of the instructor and the college concerned, an
undergraduate student at the University of Florida may enroll in graduate-level
courses (500 and 600 level) if he has senior standing and an upper-division grade-
point average of at least 2.8. Up to ten hours of graduate-level courses 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 these rules and regulations.


ADMISSION OF FACULTY MEMBERS AS GRADUATE STUDENTS
Members of the faculty of the University of Florida with a rank of instructor or
above (or equivalents), except county agents in the Agricultural Extension Service.
may not receive a graduate degree from this institution. They may. however.
register for work in the Graduate School.









12 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 for a graduate student is
20 credits. This number will be reduced for those students who hold graduate
student appointments. Guidelines for adjusting the maximum registration in such
instances are provided in the Graduate Coordinators' Manual, and students should
consult the graduate coordinators in their respective departments.
Minimum Registration.-Graduate students who receive any of the various
types of graduate student stipends must meet certain minimum registration
requirements. Information concerning these minima is available in the Graduate
School Office and in the offices of the graduate coordinators of the various
graduate programs.
Any graduate student who is utilizing University facilities and/or faculty time
must register for an appropriate load.
Credit for Residence Requirement.-Most degree programs in the Graduate
School include a requirement that the student must be in residence for a certain
number of quarters on campus. Residence is computed on the basis of the total
number of hours for which a student is registered. A registration of 15 quarter
hours is equivalent to one quarter of residence, with the limitation that no more
than one quarter of residence may be earned in a single quarter regardless of the
number of hours of registration.
For students whose total registration is less than 15 hours in a single quarter,
residence is computed on the basis of the ratio of hours registered to 15 hours. For
example, registration of 12 hours is computed as 12/15 or 4/5 of a quarter of
residence.


COURSES AND CREDITS
Courses numbered 500 and above are limited to graduate students, with the
exception described above as Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses.









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 13


Courses numbered 700 and above are graduate courses primarily for advanced
graduate students.
Registration in 699-Master's Research and in 799-Doctoral Research may be
from 1 to 15 credits in one quarter. Advisors should assign the number of credits in
these courses appropriate to each student's research plan.
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 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 gradepoint 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.
Deferred H Grade: In special situations where it is not possible to assign regular
grades at the end of the term a deferred grade may be assigned. The symbol for a
deferred grade is the letter H. This grade may be assigned only in special cases such
as modular courses, performance-based curriculum, or in cases where the expected
unit of work may be developed over a period of time greater than a single term. A
grade of H may not be used for courses where S and U grades are awarded. It is
expected that as soon as the required unit of work is completed, the H grade will be
changed in the usual manner to a traditional letter grade. A grade of H will not be
computed in a student's gradepoint average. Courses for which H grades are
appropriate must be so noted in their catalog descriptions.









14 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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 work open only for graduate
credit attempted for the major. Any grade of I or X must be removed by
completing all required work. Grades of I must be removed no later than the last
day of classes of the first term in which the student registers following receipt of the
I grade. If the I grade has not been changed accordingly, the Office of the Registrar
will be requested to record a Grade of E for the course. Exceptions to this policy
will be made by the Graduate School only if written justification from the
department chairman, approved by the college dean, is received by the Graduate
Dean four weeks prior to the last day of classes. All grades of I must be removed
prior to the award of a graduate degree.

UNSATISFACTORY SCHOLARSHIP
Any graduate student may be denied further registration in the University or in
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 DEPARTMENT OR COLLEGE
Graduate students who wish to change their major department or college must
make formal application through the Office of the Registrar and obtain approval
from the Graduate School.

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

EXAMINATIONS
The student's supervisory committee is responsible for the administration of the
written and oral qualifying examinations as well as the final oral examination for
the defense of the thesis or dissertation. All members of the supervisory committee
must sign the appropriate forms, including the signature pages, in order for the
student to satisfy the requirements of the examination.

PROCEDURE FOR FINAL QUARTER
It is the student's responsibility to ascertain that all requirements have been met
and that every deadline is observed. It is essential that he inform himself concerning









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 15
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 his college,
school, or department. Regular issues of Deadline Dates are available each quarter.
When his dissertation or thesis is ready to be put in final form, the student
should get instructions from the Graduate School Editorial Office, and should
request the Student Information and Records Office to check his student folder to
make certain 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.
1. The candidate must have met the residence requirement appropriate to his

16 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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

REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER'S DEGREES
GENERAL REGULATIONS
The following regulations represent those of the Graduate School. Colleges and
departments may have additional regulations in addition to those stated below.
Course 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 open only for graduate credit. No more than 9 credits from a
previous master's degree program may be applied toward a second master's degree.
Residence.-For any master's degree the student in residence must spend at
least three full-time quarters, or equivalent, as a graduate student at the University
of Florida.
Nonresident county agents in the Agricultural Extension Service may use three
three-week summer sessions for the purpose of satisfying the residence requirements
for the degrees Master of Agriculture or Master of Science in Agriculture, but only
if they have also spent one quarter in full-time resident graduate study on the
campus at the University of Florida.
Supervisory Committee.-The supervisory committee for a student who is
writing a thesis as part of his master's program must consist of at least two
members as described below under Master of Arts and Master of Science. The
committee for a student who is not writing a thesis may consist of one member of
the Graduate Studies Faculty who advises the student and oversees his program. If
a minor is designated, the committee should include a representative from the
graduate faculty in 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 three 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 open only for graduate credit to the extent of ten
quarter hours earned with a grade of A or 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 ten quarter hours of 500- or 600-level courses









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 17


taken as an undergraduate only if the following conditions are satisfied: (I) The
courses involved in the transfer are in excess of undergraduate degree requirements;
and (2) the courses are taken in the senior year.
Time Limitation.-All 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 degrees also
apply to the following degrees, except as they are individually described hereafter:
Master of Arts with major in urban and regional planning, 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 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.
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 open only for graduate credit.
For work outside the major, courses numbered 300 and above may be taken. At
least half the required minimum of regular course work must be in courses open
only for graduate credit.
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 Editorial Office for instructions concerning the form of the thesis. The
original copy of the thesis, bound with an abstract and accompanied by four
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.-(l) The requirement of a reading knowledge of a
foreign language is at the discretion of the department. The foreign language
requirement varies from department to department and the student should check
with the appropriate department for specific information. (2) The ability to use the
English language correctly and effectively, as judged by the supervisory committee,
is required of all candidates.
Supervisory Committee.-Upon the recommendation of the department or
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 (who has been appointed to the Graduate Studies









18 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

Faculty). 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 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. At least 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 three 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 courses open only for graduate credit
in his major, (2) chosen his thesis topic, (3) 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 the 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 and/or oral examination on his major field of study and on
his minor if one is designated. Nonthesis degree candidates will be required to
register for no fewer than 3 credits of course work during the term the degree is
awarded. Registration in 699 or 799 may not be used to meet this requirement.
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. If a minor is designated, the
committee must include a representative selected from the Graduate Studies
Faculty of the minor field. 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 and/or oral examination.
Change from Thesis to Nonthesis Option.-A student who wishes to change
from the thesis option to the nonthesis option for the master's degree must obtain









GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS / 19
the permission of his supervisory committee to make such a change. This
permission must be forwarded to the Graduate School at least one full quarter
prior to the intended date of graduation. The candidate must meet all the
requirements of the nonthesis option as specified above. A maximum of 5 credits
earned in 699-Master's Research can be counted toward the degree requirements
only if converted to credit as Individual Work. The supervisory committee must
indicate that the work was productive in and by itself and warrants credit as a
special problem or special topic course.

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 in courses open only
for graduate credit, with work distributed as follows:
a. At least 28 credits in the major and 8 credits in the 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 one course in each of the following: educational psychology,
sociology, and curriculum dealing with the community college. These
courses may be used to comprise a minor.
3. Residence: A minimum of 15-25 credits (at the department's discretion),
including one full quarter in residence, must be earned on the Gainesville campus.
4. 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.
5. 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 a professional degree for those
students who wish to qualify for registration as an architect or for the teaching
profession.
The general requirements for this degree are the same as those for other Master
of Arts degrees with thesis except that the minimum registration required is 76
credits, including no more than 9 credits in 699. In some 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 ARTS WITH MAJOR IN URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING
The degree of Master of Arts with major in Urban and Regional Planning is the
professional degree for students who wish to qualify for full membership in the
American Institute of Planners.










20 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

The general requirements for this degree are the same as those for other Master
of Arts degrees with thesis except that the minimum registration required is 72
credits, including no more than 9 credits in URP 699. In some study areas, with
permission from the departmental graduate faculty, a terminal project requiring 9
credits in URP 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
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 he in courses open only for graduate credit. If a
departmental major is claimed, 18 credits must be in the major department, and

REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTERS DEGREES / 21

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 9
courses and a graduate program of at least 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 a
minimum of 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 1 course
Statistics 1 course
Mathematics for Business Analysis I course
Business Law I course
Corporate Finance 1 course
Management 1 course
Marketing 1 course
(The accounting requirement may be met with ATG 510 (5 credits) or its
equivalent. If the student presents the usual two-term sequence of an 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 areas: accounting, business
economics, finance, health and hospital administration, insurance, management,
marketing, quantitative analysis for business, and real estate and urban land
studies. Approval may be sought for a concentration consisting of courses from
more than one area. 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.

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.










22 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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 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 proficiency 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.

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

statements are applicable to both degrees.









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 31


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 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.-Duties of the supervisory committee follow:
1. To inform the student of all regulations governing the degree sought. It
should be noted, however, that this does not absolve the student from the
responsibility of informing himself concerning these regulations. (See Student
Responsibility.)










32 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

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
selected from the graduate faculty from outside the discipline of the major for the
purpose of representing the student's minor. In the event that the student elects
more than one minor, each minor area may, at the discretion of the departments
concerned, be represented on the supervisory committee.
When a minor is not designated, the supervisory committee will include at least
one person from outside the discipline of the-major who has been appointed to the
graduate faculty. The Graduate Council desires each 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 cochairman, with the latter being a member of the graduate
faculty, but not necessarily of the Doctoral Research Faculty. A cochairman may
also be appointed for the purpose of serving during a planned absence of the
chairman; in this case both the chairman and the cochairman shall have been
appointed to the Doctoral Research Faculty.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
The foreign language requirement, or a substitute therefore, for the Ph.D. degree
is completely optional with the individual's department. The student should check
with the graduate coordinator of his major department for specific information
about the foreign language requirements.
The foreign language departments offer special classes for graduate students
who are beginning the study of a language. See the current Schedule of Courses for
the languages in which this assistance is available.









REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PH.D. / 33


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.
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.
A quarter of residence is earned for every 15 credits of course, thesis, and
dissertation work, 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.

QUALIFYING EXAMINATION
The qualifying examination, which is required of all candidates for the degree
of Doctor of Philosophy, may be taken during the third term of the second year of
graduate study. The examination, conducted by the 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. 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 ex-
amination, a written report of the result of his examination must be filed with the
Graduate School Office.






j









34 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


Time Lapse.-Between the qualifying examination and the date of the degree
there must be a minimum of two quarters if the candidate is in full-time residence,
or three quarters if the candidate is on less than a full-time basis. The quarter in
which the qualifying examination is passed is counted, provided that the exam-
ination 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 should be 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
contain an abstract and be accompanied by four unpaged separate copies of the
abstract, a letter of transmittal from the supervisory chairman, and all doctoral
forms. After corrections have been made, and no later than the specified formal
submission date, the fully signed copy of the dissertation, together with the signed
Final Examination Report, should be returned to the Graduate School. The
original copy of the dissertation is sent by the Graduate School to the Library for
microfilming and hardbinding. A second signed copy, reproduced on required
thesis paper, should be given the office of the college dean or the graduate
coordinator for subsequent delivery to the Library for hardbinding. The
supervisory chairman and the candidate will each need a copy and, if required,
another should also be provided for the departmental library.
Publication of Dissertation.-All candidates for the Ph.D. and Ed.D. degrees
are required to pay the sum of $25 to Student Accounts, the Hub, for microfilming
their dissertations, and to sign an agreement authorizing publication by microfilm.
Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copyright his microfilmed disserta-
tion for a charge of $15 payable by a certified or cashier's check or money order to
University Microfilms attached to the signed Microfilm Agreement Form. To
assure receipt of the valuable Copyright Registration Certificate, the candidate
must give a permanent address through which he can always be reached.


*I ------ -









FINAL EXAMINATION / 35


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. An announcement of the scheduled examination
must be sent to the Dean of the Graduate School. At least five faculty members
must be present at the oral portion of this examination. At the time of the defense
all committee members should sign the signature pages and all committee and
attending faculty members should sign the Final Examination Report. These may
be retained by the supervisory chairman until acceptable completion of corrections.
Satisfactory performance on this examination and adherence to all Graduate
School regulations outlined above complete the requirements for the degree.

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 spouse of any person who is classified or is eligible for
classification as an in-state student is likewise entitled to classification as an in-state
student. 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.









36 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

For more detailed information see the section in the Undergraduate Catalog
entitled Classification of Students.

death or illness of the student. Illness must be confirmed by the student's physician.
Except as noted above, no refund will be made if the student withdraws after
the final day of the add/drop period.
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

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.
For Single Graduate Students.-Two modern, air conditioned residence halls
are reserved 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 32611. Inquiries about private housing
accommodations should be addressed to the Off-Campus Housing Office, Division
of Housing, University of Florida, Gainesville 32611.
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 halls (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, is
$215 per student.

FACILITIES FOR FAMILIES
The University operates six apartment villages for married students or divorced
or widowed students with dependent children. Because of the demand for housing
and the limited supply, application should be made at least one year prior to the
time housing is needed. To be eligible to apply for and occupy apartment housing
on campus, the following requirements must be met.










HOUSING / 39

The married student must meet the requirements for admission to the University
of Florida, qualify as a full-time student as defined by his school or college, 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. No pets are
allowed. 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.*

2 persons 3 & 4 persons 5 & 6 persons
Undergraduate $7900 $9100 $10,300
Graduate $8100 $9310 $10,510
*For McGuire Village residents, the combined gross annual income for each family unit is
limited to $7400, $8700, and $10,000 respectively.
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.

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 must pay the appropriate Florida or non-
Florida tuition. Fellows and trainees are expected to devote full time to their
studies and their stipend is excludablee from income for tax purposes." Graduate
assistants who have part-time teaching or research duties should register for

continuation of good scholarship.


NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT FELLOWSHIPS
Title VI NDEA Fellowships.-These are available for students whose proposed
programs emphasize the learning of Spanish, Portuguese, or Aymara through
courses in the language or, in the case of doctoral candidates working on the
dissertation, through research dealing with the language or research in which the
language is an indispensable tool. Fellows are expected also to study other fields
needed for a fuller understanding of the area, region, or country in which such a
language is commonly used. These related studies may include such fields as
anthropology, economics, geography, history, linguistics, literature, political
science, and sociology.
The basic stipend will comprise the cost of tuition and all required fees, plus
$2,000 for the first academic year of postbaccalaureate study, $2,200 for each
subsequent academic year, and $2,400 for the terminal academic year.

U.S. institutions of higher education to undertake non-Western language and area
study and research abroad.
In general, Fellows will be expected to study in the world area of their academic
interests during their periods abroad, and Fellows following a full-time program of
formal study will normally be expected to carry on their studies ir. a single country.
In certain cases, however, approval may be given for dissertation research which









42 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

would involve (a) visits to several countries, or (b) study outside the geographic
area involved if it is demonstrated that specialized or superior research facilities
exist elsewhere.
Stipends will be individually computed on the basis of the cost of living in the
foreign country. The award will also cover travel expenses, fees for tuition which
the Fellow may need to carry out his approved program, and an allowance to help
him meet the cost of research and incidental expenses.

UNITED STATES STEEL FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIPS
A two-year fellowship is awarded in even-numbered years by the United States
Steel Foundation to an outstanding student pursuing the doctoral degree. This

SPECIAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS
RESEARCH AND TEACHING FACILITIES
THE ARTS
The University Center of the Arts is the coordinating facility, administered by
the Colleges of Architecture and Fine Arts, to serve the students, faculty, and the
general public by presenting exhibitions and performances of the best works in the
visual and performing arts. These works include all programs in the Building Arts
and Fine Arts such as those in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape
Architecture, Building Construction, Art, and Music. Various other programs are
given in cooperation with different departments throughout the University and the
community.
ART GALLERIES

The University Gallery is an integral part of the Architecture and Fine Arts
complex. The Gallery is located on the campus facing S.W. 13th Street (U.S. 441).
An atrium and a reflecting pool are two pleasing features of the Gallery's distinctive
architectural style. The Gallery, with 3000 square feet of display space, is
completely modern, air-conditioned, and maintains a varied exhibition schedule of
the visual arts during the year. The contents of exhibitions displayed in the
University Gallery range from the creations of traditional masters to the latest and
most experimental works by the modern avant-garde. The minor arts of yesterday
and today, along with the creations of oriental and primitive cultures, form topics
for scheduled exhibitions. Each exhibition shows for approximately a month, and
the Gallery's hours are from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. daily except Sunday, when they are
from 1 P.M. to 5 P.M. The Gallery is closed Saturdays, holidays, and during the
month of September.
The Teaching Gallery of the Department of Art is located adjacent to the
department's office area, on the third floor of the classroom building in the Colleges
of Architecture and Fine Arts complex. As a direct and physical adjunct to the Art
Department's teaching program, this Gallery displays smaller traveling exhibitions
of merit, as well as student exhibitions and one-man shows by faculty artists. The
Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 A.M. to noon and from 1:30 P.M. to
4:30 P.M. It is closed Saturdays and Sundays.

COMPUTATIONAL FACILITIES
In addition to numerous small digital computers and at least three hybrid
computers located on the campus, the University of Florida houses the central
facilities of the Northeast Regional Data (Processing) Center (NERDC) of the State
University System of Florida. These facilities-which are available to students and









SPECIAL PROGRAMS / 45


faculty at the University-include an IBM System/370-165 computer with 2
Megabytes of high-speed core, several IBM 3330 disk drives and a 2311 drive, plus
a number of 9-track tape drives and a 7-track unit. In addition to the 165 and its
peripheral devices, facilities also include an IBM 1401 and an offline Calcomp drum
plotter.
NERDC supports batch processing and well over a hundred low-speed
interactive terminals serving almost all areas of the campus. These terminals
support APL, Coursewriter III, FLORTRAN (a locally written interactive
FORTRAN interpreter), BASIC, and ATS, and have an interactive file generation,
editing capability, and the ability to be used for submission of batch jobs. Limited
output from batch jobs may also be routed to such terminals. More extensive
output is printed on either of the two centrally located high-speed printers or at one
of several on-campus high-speed remote batch terminals available for submission of
batch jobs. Extensive software support is provided for batch processing, including
the major high-level languages and a large number of program packages and
special-purpose languages.
The NERDC facilities are used for instructional, research and administrative
computing. In addition to the hardware and software support, they include
consulting and programming services by highly qualified applications and systems
programmers. The staff of the NERDC also endeavors to facilitate communication
among users of its facilities and to disseminate to them information from off
campus which may prove valuable to local computational endeavors.
More information about the NERDC is available through its manuals and its
newsletter, / Update.

FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM
The Florida State Museum was created by an act of the Legislature in 1917 as a
department of the University of Florida. Through its affiliation with the University
it carries dual responsibility as the State Museum of Florida and as the University
Museum.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthropology and natural
history. Its accessory functions as an educational arm of the University are carried
forward through interpretive displays and scientific publications. Under the
administrative control of the director are the three departments of the Museum:
Natural Sciences, staffed by scientists and technicians concerned with the study and
expansion of the research collections of animals; Social Sciences, whose staff
members are concerned with the study of historic and prehistoric cultures;
Interpretation, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of knowledge through
museum exhibit techniques. Members of the scientific and educational staff of the
Museum hold dual appointments in appropriate teaching departments. Through
these appointments they participate in both the undergraduate and graduate
teaching programs.
Graduate assistantships are available in the Museum in areas emphasized in its
research programs.
The Museum is located at the corner of Museum Road and Newell Drive in a
modern facility completed in 1970. The public halls are open from 9:30 A.M. until 5

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 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, in January, 1971, the $1.6 million federally funded Graduate School and
International Studies Building, now dedicated and named Linton E. Grinter Hall.
The modern four-story building contains 60 faculty offices, 102 study cubicles, and
9 seminar rooms, as well as the offices of the Graduate School and the Division of
Sponsored Research.
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 Center for African Studies, 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. It cooperates with departments in administering and staffing a coordinated
Certificate Program in African Studies. This program provides a broad foundation









48 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


for students preparing for teaching or other professional careers in which a
knowledge of Africa is essential. University fellowships and assistantships are
available on a competitive basis to students in the degree programs described
below. The Center sponsors conferences and visiting lecturers. It supports directly
as well as through various departments selective library acquisitions to meet the
instructional and research needs of the Center's faculty and students.
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. degrees.
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) a structural knowledge of an African language.
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.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the Center should be
addressed to the Director, Center for African Studies, 470 L. E. Grinter Hall,
University of Florida.
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. In addition to regular
English Language Institute testing, institutional administration of TOEFL is given
near the end of each quarter.
Further information is available from the Director, English Language Institute,
L. E. Grinter Hall, University of Florida.
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









SPECIAL PROGRAMS / 49


interdisciplinary area degree offered directly by the Center. Requirements are (a) a
major of 21 credits consisting primarily of Latin American language or area courses
in one department, which may be food and resource economics, anthropology,
economics, Romance languages (Spanish and Portuguese), geography, history,
political science, and sociology; (b) 18 credits of Latin 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

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.
A certificate may also be awarded to those students in a department permitting
the master's degree without thesis who meet the following 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.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships.-In addition to University fellow-
ships and assistantships available to students on a competitive basis in the degree

In terms of subject matter, holdings are strongest in history and the social sciences,
but increasing attention is being given to the environmental sciences and to
literature. In terms of region, they are strongest in the Caribbean and circum-
Caribbean, but Brazilian materials are being augmented rapidly.
Other Activities.-The Center sponsors conferences on Latin American topics
and problems, supports publication of scholarly books, monographs, and papers,
and cooperates with other University units in organizing and conducting
developmental programs in Latin America.
Inquiries about the various programs and activities of the Center should be
addressed to the Director, Center for Latin American Studies, L. E. Grinter Hall,
University of Florida.
The Center for Tropical Agriculture, within the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, seeks to stimulate interest in research and curriculum 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.

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 Rsearch 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.










56 / 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, field services, and business service.
The Agricultural Research Centers are located at Monticello, Brooksville, Ft.
Pierce, Immokalee, Dover, Ft. Lauderdale, Hastings, Ona, Apopka, Marianna,
Live Oak, Leesburg, Lakeland, Jay, and Ocala.
The locations of the Agricultural Research and Education Centers are at
Homestead, Belle Glade, Bradenton, Lake Alfred, Quincy, Sanford, and
Tallahassee (Fla. A & M).
The Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations are cooperating with the
Brooksville Beef Cattle Research Station, Brooksville, a USDA field laboratory, in
its beef cattle and pasture production and management programs and with the
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 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.










SPECIAL PROGRAMS / 57


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.
The law establishing the Division of Sponsored Research enables the utilization
of some recovered indirect cost funds in the support of innovative research. The
Board of Directors of the Division has the responsibility for the award of these
funds. For information write the Director, Division of Sponsored Research, 219 L.
E. Grinter Hall, University of Florida.


FLORIDA ENGINEERING AND INDUSTRIAL 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 micro-
electronics 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, communications, kinetics,
ionics, gaseous electronics and plasmas, computer and information science, and
systems analysis.










58 / THE GRADUATE SCHOOL


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

Assistant Professors: I. N. GLEIM; J. F. GUY; G. L. SALMON; E. D. SMITH

Graduate Programs: The Department of Accounting offers graduate work
leading to the degrees Master of Business Administration (with an accounting
concentration); Master of Arts in accounting; and Ph.D. in business administration
with accounting major. The M.B.A. offers a broad business education with some
accounting specialization. It is generally appropriate for students with undergradu-
ate majors other than accounting. The M.A. is a specialist accounting degree and
can be tailored to the student's career objective: public accounting, taxation,
management accounting or continuation in the Ph.D. program. The Ph.D.
accounting major is designed for students who wish to become university
accounting teachers.
Admission: Students must have been admitted to the Graduate School of the
University of Florida. M.B.A. students with accounting concentrations must meet
the minimal standards of the University of Florida. The M.A. and Ph.D.
accounting programs require admission standards of at least the following: For the
M.A. program, a combined verbal and quantitative score of at least 1100 on the
Graduate Record Examination (GRE); a combined Graduate Record Examination
score of at least 1200 for the Ph.D. program; or a score of at least 480 for the M.A.,
and 525 for the Ph.D. program on the Advanced Test for Graduate Studies in
Business (ATGSB). Either the Graduate Record Examination or the Advanced Test
for Graduate Studies in Business scores are acceptable, but admission to the M.A.
or Ph.D. accounting graduate programs cannot be granted until scores are received.
Foreign students must submit a TOEFL test score of at least 500 and a satisfactory
ATGSB or GRE score which may be lower than the above requirement.
M.B.A. (accounting concentration): Eighteen quarter hours of accounting
subjects are required, with a minimum of 9 hours in courses approved for graduate
credit. BA 540 and 610 may be counted as accounting courses in meeting these
requirements. Undergraduate accounting courses (300 or above) can be taken with
the permission of the graduate coordinator.
Master of Arts in accounting: Admission to advanced courses in accounting
requires that students have, or complete without graduate credit, approximately the
courses required of an undergraduate accounting major. With this background the
M.A. degree can normally be earned in four quarters.
THESIS OPTION. Requirements include 18 to 20 quarter hours of advanced
accounting courses and the balance of a total of 36 hours in one or two minor fields
(finance, operations research, history, etc.). A thesis on an accounting-related topic
is required.









76 / FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION


NONTHESIS OPTION. 54 credits of course work required. Six courses must be in
accounting. Four courses must be selected in at least two of the following
underlying disciplines: behavioral science, micro economic theory, operations
research, statistics.
Ph.D. in business administration with accounting major: Requirements include a
core of courses in operations research and the behavioral sciences; a field of
economic theory; a minor in some field selected by the student and a major field of
accounting. Specific details will be supplied by the graduate coordinator upon
request. Fulfillment of a research technique and a dissertation on an accounting-
related topic are also required.
COURSE REQUIREMENTS. For admission to graduate-level courses, the student
should have had undergraduate courses in fields pertinent to the graduate courses
selected; or, where necessary, special arrangements may be made with the approval
of the graduate coordinator. Though no graduate major may be completed without
adequate course work on the 500 or higher level, certain undergraduate courses in
accounting are available for graduate credit as a part of a candidate's major when
specifically approved by his adviser.
