Graduate study at the University of Florida existed

while the University

was still on its Lake City campus.

However, the first graduate degrees, two Master of Arts
with a major in English, were awarded on the Gainesville
campus in 1906. The first Master of Science was awarded
in 1908, with a major in entomology. The first programs
leading to the Ph.D. were initiated in 1930, and the first

degrees were awarded in

1934, one with a major

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.

1930, 33 degrees were awarded in

12 fields. In


degrees were awarded in 16 fields. In 1992-93, the total
number of graduate degrees awarded was 2,013 in more
than 100 fields. The proportion of Ph.D. degrees, after the
initial rapid growth, remained relatively static during most
of the 1980s but during the last few years has shown a

significant increase. In 1987-88, the total

was 304; in

1988-89,331 were awarded; in 1989-90, there were 345;

admission to the Graduate School.

Students may be granted conditional admission to defer
final admission decisions until requisite examination scores
or final grade records are available. Students may also be
granted conditional admission to ascertain their ability to
pursue graduate work at the University of Florida if previous
grade records or Graduate Record Examination scores are
on the borderline of acceptability or when specific prereq-
uisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission should be noti-
fied by the department of the conditions under which they
are admitted. When these conditions have been satisfied,
the department must notify the student in writing, sending
a copy to the Graduate School. Eligible course work taken
while a student is in conditional status is applicable toward
a graduate degree.
Students failing to meet any condition of admission will
be barred from further registration.

Such exceptions, if given, are extremely rare and will only
be approved when it is determined to be in the best interest
of the University.


Traveling Scholar Program.-This program makes the
entire State University System graduate curriculum avail-
able to University of Florida graduate students. A course or
research activity not offered on this campus, taken under
the auspices of the Traveling Scholar Program at another

SUS university, will count

as credit at the University of

Florida if approved by the graduate coordinator or the
supervisory committee chair and the Dean of the Graduate
School. Traveling scholars are normally limited to one term
on the campus of the host university. The deans of graduate
schools of the state universities are the coordinators of the
program, and interested students should contact the Gradu-

It is the responsibility of the graduate student to become
informed and to observe all regulations and procedures
required by the program the student is pursuing. The
student must be familiar with those sections of the Graduate
Catalog that outline general regulations and requirements,
specific degree program requirements, and the offerings
and requirements of the major department. Ignorance of a
rule does not constitute a basis for waiving that rule. Any
exceptions to the policies stated in the Graduate Catalog
must be approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
After admission to the Graduate School, but before the
first registration, the student should consult the college and/
or the graduate coordinator in the major department con-
cerning courses and degree requirements, deficiencies if
any, and special regulations of the department. The dean of
the college in which the degree program is located or a
representative must approve all registrations. Once a super-
visory committee has been appointed, registration approval
should be the responsibility of the chair.


The University of Florida assures the confidentiality of
student educational records in accordance with the State
University System rules, state statutes, and the Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (known as the
Buckley Amendment).
Information which may be released to the public on any
student is the name; class, college, and major; dates of
attendance; degrees) earned; awards received; local and
permanent address; and telephone number.
In general, a present or former student has the right to
personally review his or her own educational records for
information and to ascertain the accuracy of these records.
Parents of dependent students, as defined by the Internal
Revenue Service, have these same rights. A photo I.D. or
other equivalent documentation or personal recognition by

The University of Florida operates on a semester system
consisting of two 16-week periodsand two 6-week summer
terms. A credit under the semester system is equal to 1.5

Full-time students, not on appointment, must register for
a minimum of 12 credits. Part-time status may be approved
by the graduate coordinator or student's adviserfor students
who are not pursuing a degree on a full-time basis. Such
exceptions must be clearly justified and the approved
registration must be commensurate with the use of Univer-
sity facilities and faculty time.
The minimum study load for students not on assistantship
is three credits during Fall and Spring Semesters and two for


Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be used as
any part of the graduate degree requirements, includingthe
requirement for a period of concentrated study. Under-
graduate courses (3000-4999), outside the major depart-
ment, may be used for support course work when taken as
part of an approved graduate program.
Courses numbered 5000 and above are limited to gradu-
ate students, with the exception described under Under-
graduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses num-
bered 7000 and above are designed primarily for advanced
graduate students.
No more than five hours each of 6910 (Supervised
Research) and 6940 (Supervised Teaching) may betaken by
a graduate student at the University of Florida.

Graduate students must conform to the Registrar's dead-
line for drops. However, under certain circumstances,
substitutions of courses, if approved bythe Graduate School,
are permitted after the Registrar's deadline.
Correspondence Work.-No courses taken by corre-
spondence may be used for graduate credit.
Professional Work.-No courses from a professional
curriculum (e.g., J.D., D.V.M., or M.D.) may be used for
graduate credit except as approved in an authorized joint
degree program.


The only passing grades for graduate students are A, B+,
B, C+, C, and S. Grades of C+ and C in courses below 5000
level are acceptable for credit toward graduate degrees if
the total program meets the B average requirement. In
5000-level courses and above, C+ and C grades count

A student seeking a master's degree

in the field of

engineering may become a candidate for the Master of
Engineering degree with or without thesis, provided such a
candidate has a bachelor's degree in engineering from an
ABET-accredited Curriculum or has taken sufficient articu-
lation course work to meet the minimum requirements
specified by ABET. Students who do not meet this require-
ment may become candidates for the Master of Science
degree, provided they meet departmental requirements for
admission. The general intent in making this distinction is
to encourage those who are professionally oriented to seek
the Master of Engineering degree, and those who are more
scientifically oriented-and those who have science-based
backgrounds to seek the Master of Science degree.
Also, the Master of Civil Engineering degree has been
approved as a variant of the Master of Engineering degree.
The M.C.E. is oriented specifically to the design and pro-
fessional practice in civil engineering. The degree require-
ments include a minimum number of hours of design and
professional practice instruction at the graduate level, six
months' full-time civil engineering related experience or its
equivalent obtained after the student has achieved junior
status, and completion of the Engineer Intern Examination.

grams. Additional requirements vary with the department
and with the student's plans for doctoral research.
For information relatingto Concentrated Period of Study,
the Supervisory Committee, Time Lapse, the Dissertation,
and the Final Examination, the student is referred to the
material presented under the heading Requirements for the
Ph.D. These statements are applicable to both degrees.



Doctoral study consists of the independent mastery of a
field of knowledge and the successful pursuit of research.
Consequently, doctoral programs are more flexible and
varied than those leading to other graduate degrees. The

Graduate Council does not specify what courses

will be

required for the Ph.D. degree. The general requirement is

that the program should be unified

in relation to a clear

objective, that it should have the considered approval of the
student's entire supervisory committee, and that it should
include an appropriate number of credit hours of doctoral

f /n. inFrlr lnrr tirA r& rLIT


years. No more than 30 hours of a master's degree from
another institution will be transferred to a doctoral program.
All courses beyond the master's degree taken at another
university, to be applied to the Ph.D. degree, must be taken
at an institution offering the doctoral degree and must be
approved for graduate credit by the Graduate School of the
University of Florida. The student's supervisory committee
has the responsibility for recommending individual courses
of study for each doctoral student.
Major.-The student working for the Ph.D. must elect to
do the major work in a departmentor interdisciplinary unit
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 the supervisory commit-
tee, 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 doc-
toral degree programs as listed in this Catalog. The collec-
tive grade for courses included in a minor must be B or
If one minor is chosen, the representative of the minor
department on the supervisory committee shall suggest
from 12 to 24 credits (at least 12 credits must be at the 5000
level or higher) as preparation for a qualifying examination.
A part of this background may have been acquired in the
master's program. If two minors are chosen, each must
include at leasteight credits. Competence in the minor area
may be demonstrated through a written examination con-
ducted by the minor department or through the oral quali-
fying examination.
Course work in the minor at the doctoral level need not
be restricted to the courses of one department, provided that
the minor has a clearly stated objective and that the
combination of courses representing the minor shall be
approved by the Graduate School. This procedure is not
required for a departmental minor.


A doctoral student who will not be registered at the
University of Florida for a period of more than one semester
mustrequestwritten permission from his/herfaculty adviser
for a leave of absence for a designated period of time.


Supervisory committees are nominated by the depart-
ment chairperson, 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 the second semester of
equivalent full-time study. The Dean of the Graduate
School is an ex-officio member of all supervisory commit-
tees and should be notified in writing well in advance of all

candidate for this examination. Only members of the
official supervisory committee may sign the dissertation.
The dissertation must be approved unanimously by the
official supervisory committee.
Membership.-The supervisory committee for a candi-
date for the doctoral degree shall consist of no fewer than
four members selected from the graduate faculty. At least
two members, including the chairperson, will be from the
department recommending the degree, and at least one
member will be drawn from a different educational disci-
pline. The chairperson and at least one additional member
of the committee must be members of the 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 must be represented on the supervisory committee.
The Graduate Council desires each supervisory commit-
tee to function as a University committee, as contrasted
with a departmental committee, in order to bring Univer-
sity-wide standards to bear upon the various doctoral

The qualifying examination, which is required of all
candidates for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, may be
taken during the third semester of graduate study beyond
the bachelor's degree.
The student must be registered in the term in which the
qualifying examination is given.
The examination, prepared and evaluated by the full
supervisory committee or the major and minor depart-
ments, is both written and oral and covers the major and
minor subjects. At leastfive faculty members, includingthe
supervisory committee, must be present with the student at
the oral portion. The supervisory committee has the respon-
sibility at this time of deciding whether the student is
qualified to continue work toward a Ph.D. degree.
If a studentfailsthequalifying examination, the Graduate
School must be notified. A re-examination may be re-
quested, but it must be recommended by the supervisory
committee and approved by the Graduate School. At least
one semester of additional preparation is considered essen-
tial before re-examination.
Time Lapse.-Between the oral portion of the qualifying
examination and the date of the degree there must be a
minimum of two semesters. The semester in which the
qualifying examination is passed is counted, provided that
the examination occurs before the midpoint of the term.


A graduate student does not become a candidate for the
Ph.D. degree until granted formal admission to candidacy.
Such admission requires the approval of the student's
supervisory committee, the department chairperson, the
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 the supervisory committee

Research performed at the University can effectively
contribute to the education of our students and to the body
of knowledge that is our heritage only if the results of the
research are published freely and openly. Conflicts can
develop when it is in the interests of sponsors of university
research to restrict such publication. When such conflicts
arise, the University must decide what compromises it is
willing to accept, taking into account the relevant circum-
stances. TheAAU guidelinescontained herein were adopted
by the University of Florida Graduate Council on January

Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to
prepare and present a dissertation that shows independent
investigation and is acceptable in form and content to the
supervisory committee and to the Graduate School. Disser-
tations must be written in English. The Dean of the Graduate
School may approve exceptionsto this rule on an individual
basis for students majoring in German or Romance lan-
guages and literatures.
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 d issertation 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

After submission of the dissertation and the completion
of all other prescribed work for the degree, but no earlier
than the term preceding the semester in which the degree
is conferred, the candidate will be given a final examina-
tion, oral or written or both, by the supervisory committee
meeting on campus. An announcement of the scheduled
examination and an abstract must be sent to the Dean of the
Graduate School 10 working days before the selected date.

At least five faculty members,

The Florida Engineering Education Delivery System
(FEEDS) is a cooperative effort to deliver graduate engineer-
ing courses and degree programs via videotape delivery to
engineers throughout Florida. Along with the University of
Florida, participating universities include the colleges of
engineering at Florida State University/Florida A&M Uni-
versity, Florida Atlantic University, Florida International
University, the University of Central Florida, and the Uni-
versity of South Florida and the cooperating centers at the
University of North Florida and the University of West
Florida. Graduate students associated with any of these
universities have accessto the graduate engineeringcourses
offered via the FEEDS throughout the state during the school
term. Students wishingto be admitted tothe FEEDS program
or wishing to register for classes at the University of Florida
should do so by contacting the FEEDS Coordinator, E111
CSE Building. Students pursuing a degree through the
College of Engineering at the University of Florida are
governed by its requirements, the department to which they
have been admitted, and the Graduate School.


The Libraries of the University of Florida form the largest
information resource system in the state of Florida. While
the collections are extensive, they are not comprehensive
and graduate students will find it useful to supplementthem
through a variety of services and cooperative programs
drawing upon the resourcespf many other libraries. The
following entry describes the UF libraries, local collection
** *_ * & UK *& ..


University's faculty and students, but each has a special
mission to be the primary support of specific colleges and
degree programs. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of
research, scholars may find collections built in one library
to serve a specific discipline or constituency to be of great
importance to their own research in another discipline. It
most likely will be necessary to use more than one library
to discover all of the resources pertinent to a particular
research interest.
The LUIS system, your key to the UF libraries collections,
has been greatly expanded in recent years. It now offers a
diverse information menu. In addition tothe online catalog
of the holdings of the University of Florida, LUIS contains
the catalogs of the other State University System libraries in
Florida and of libraries in other states and foreign nations.
Several indexes to articles and reports provide citations to
journal articles. A new "Library News and Information"
section contains library hours, phone numbers, and other
practical information. There are also gateways to other
information sources-local, national and international.
The online catalog eases the difficulty of locating mate-
rials as it is accessible from offices, laboratories, and
dormitories or homes with workstation access to NERDC.
It contains about 96% of the cataloged col lections-excep-
tions are some older humanities and social science titles
acquired prior to 1975 as well as some uncataloged special,
archival, map, microform, and document collections. Ac-
cess to many of these collections is available through the
Union Card Catalog on the First Floor of Library West,
specialized catalogs in Special Collections and Docu-
ments, or other finding aids in Microtexts and the Map
Collection. Reference staff throughout the libraries can
provide instruction in the use of LUIS and/or written instruc-
tions for self help.
CyberLibrary is a new service which is accessible from
the main LUIS menu. It has developed into a system of user-
friendly menus that provide access to a wealth of informa-
tion about the UF Libraries, electronic journals, academic
electronic discussion lists, Internet access tools, and more.
Several electronic publications received by the Libraries
which do not exist as print publications can be read in
CyberLibrary. Examples include Post Modern Culture,
BrynMawr Classical Review, Leonardo Electronic News,
Central America Update, Chronicle of Latin American
Economic Affairs, etc.
Owing to disciplinary variation in research methods, the
policies enforced and the services offered may differ from
library to library. Most of the libraries have an advisory
board consisting of faculty and students who advise on the
policies and services relatingto their library. Information on
local policies is available at the circulation and reference
desks in each library.
As is common in research libraries, library materials are
housed in a variety of locations depending upon discipline.
*Library West holds most of the humanities and social
science collections, as well as professional collections in
supportof business, health and human performance, and
journalism. The Documents Collections are major hold-
ings of all federal documents (excepts the science related

science, and technology collections as well as the Map
Library. It also houses the federal documents published
by the USDA, NASA, Patent Office, and USGS.
*Architecture/Fine Arts Library (201 Fine Arts Building
A) holds visual arts, architecture, and building construc-
tion materials.
*Education Library (1500 Norman Hall) holds most of
the education collections.
*Music Library (231 Music Building) holds most music
materials and a collection of recordings.
*Journalism Reading Room holds a small collection of
materials relating to journalism and mass communica-
*Health Science Center Library holds major resources
for the medical sciences, related life sciences, and veteri-
nary medicine.
*Legal Information Center holds major resources for law
and related social sciences.

History, which is the state's preeminent Floridiana collec-
tion and holds the largest North American collection of
Spanish colonial documents concerning the southeastern
United States as well as rich archives of prominent Florida
politicians (Smathers Library, Special Collections).
The Libraries also have particularly strong holdings in
architectural preservation and 18th-century American
architecture (AFA), late 19th- and early-20th-century
German state documents from 1850-1940 (Library West),
Latin American art and architecture (AFA and Smathers

U.S. Census information, especially in electronic format
(Library West, Documents), the rural sociology of Florida
and tropical and subtropical agriculture collections (Marston
Science Library), English and American literature (Library
West), U.S. documents (Library West, Documents), and
computing files acquired primarily through the Inter-Uni-
versity Consortium for Political and Social Research (Tape
Library, request at Library West, Reference).
All students and faculty are provided library services
upon presentation of the University of Florida machine
readable ID card. This card is used to circulate books, to
borrow reserves, and to establish identity for other library
services such as Interlibrary Loan and online searching.
Reference service is provided to I library users in each library


assistance is available at the reference desk in each library.
In addition, instructional librarians will work with faculty
and teaching assistants to develop and present course
specific library instruction sessions. Instruction coordina-
tors are available in Humanities and Social Science Refer-
ence in Library West, in Marston Science Library, and in the
Subject specialists, who work closely with faculty and
graduate students to select materials for the collections, also
advise graduate students and other researchers who need
specialized bibliographic knowledge to define what infor-
mation resources are available locally and nationally to
support specific research. A good time to consult the
subject specialists is when beginning work on a major
research project or developing a working knowledge of
another discipline. A list of subject specialists is available
at reference desks and users may schedule a meeting with
the appropriate specialist.
The Libraries are members of the Research Libraries
Group and the Center for Research Libraries which gives
faculty and students access to many major scholarly collec-
tions. In addition, the libraries are linked to major national
and international databases such as RLIN, OCLC, NEXIS/
LEXIS, DIALOGUE, and QUESTEL. Many materialsthat are
not held on campus can be quickly located and borrowed
through one of the cooperative programs to which the
Libraries belong. Consult with a reference librarian to take
advantage of these services. Publications describing spe-
cialized services are available at reference and circulation
desks throughout the Libraries.
Current information regarding library hours may be
obtained by selecting Library Hours and Phone Numbers
from the LUIS menu or callingthe desired library (392-0341
for Library West and Smathers, 392-2758 for Marston
Science Library).


The MajorAnalytical Instrumentation Center (MAIC) was
established in 1982 to help make available complex mod-
ern analytical instrumentation and to promote its efficient
usage on the campus and in the state. This is accomplished
by coordinating campuswide usage, helping to provide
resources for maintenance, upgrading existing instruments
and developing new techniques, planning purchases of
major new instruments, training and supervising users, and
providing professional scientists to supervise the solution of
individual problems. Center personnel also direct users to
other campus facilities, if necessary. For example, the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) and the
Department of Chemistry both have a number of analytical
facilities that are available to some users.
The instruments involved include several electron mi-
croscopes (TEM, SEM, AEM) with full analytical and imag-
ing capabilities, instruments directed toward surface analy-
sis (i.e., AES, ISS, SIMS and XPS, RBS, PIXE, and NRA), and
several mass spectrometers.

several short courses of a complementary nature.) Some
individually supervised training directed by Center person-
nel is available to graduate students.
The overall aim of the MAIC is thus to make possible the
solution of any scientific or technological problem that
requires state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation and to
make these capabilities accessible to all University and
state personnel. Cooperation with state industries is also
encouraged where this is legal and appropriate.
The administration and professional staff of the MAIC are
located in 217 Materials Science and Engineering Building
where further information may be obtained upon request.


The Graduate School sponsors two monograph series
devoted to the publication of research primarily by present
and former members of the scholarly community of the
University. The Social Sciences Monographs are published
each year with subjects drawn from anthropology, eco-
nomics, history, political science, sociology, education,
geography, law, and psychology. The Humanities Mono-
graphs are published each year with subjects drawn from
art, language and literature, music, philosophy, and reli-


The Florida Museum of Natural History was created by
an act of the Legislature in 1917 as a department of the
Universityof Florida. Through its affiliation with the Univer-
sity, it carried dual responsibility as the Florida museum and
the University museum.
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 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Tuesday
through Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The Museum
is closed on Christmas Day. There is no admission charge.
The Museum operates as a center of research in anthro-
pology 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 withthe study and
expansion of the research collections of animals; Anthro-
pology, whose staff members are concerned with the study
of historic and prehistoric people and their cultures; Inter-
pretation, staffed by specialists in the interpretation of
knowledge through museum exhibit techniques and edu-
cation programs. Members ofthescientific and educational
staff of the Museum hold dual appointments in appropriate
teaching departments. Through these appointments, they
participate in both undergraduate and graduate teaching

The Swisher Memorial Sanctuary and the Ordway Pre-
serve are adjacent pieces of land totalling some 9,300 acres.
The land includes an array of habitats including marsh,
lakes, sandhills, and mesic hammocks. Jointly administered
by the School of Forest Resources and Conservation and the
Florida Museum of Natural History, this area supports
several research activities centering on the ecology of
threatened species and the restoration of the native longleaf
pine growth in the sandhills. Thesis and dissertation re-
search projects consistent with the aims of the preserve are
actively encouraged.
The herbarium of the University of Florida is also a part
of the Museum. It contains over 150,000 specimens of
vascular plants and 170,000 specimens of nonvascular
plants. In addition, the herbarium operates a modern gas
chromatographic/mass spectrometer laboratory forthe study
and identification of natural plant products.
The research collections are under the care of curators
who encourage the scientific study of the Museum's hold-
ings. Materialsareconstantly being added to the collections
both through gifts from friends and as a result of research
activities of the Museum staff. The archaeological and
ethnological collections are noteworthy, particularly in the
aboriginal and Spanish colonial material remains from the
southeastern United States and the Caribbean. There are
extensive study collections of birds, mammals, mollusks,
reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrate and vertebrate fos-
sils, plant fossils, and a bioacoustic archive consisting of
original recordings of animal sounds. Opportunities are
provided for students, staff, and visiting scientists to use the
collections. Research and field work are presently spon-
sored in the archaeological, paleontological, and zoologi-
cal fields. Students interested in these specialties should
make application to the appropriate teaching department.
Graduate assistantships are available in the Museum in
areas emphasized in its research programs.

As the oldest and largest institution of higher education
in a state at the leading edge of a rapidly changing global
environment, the University of Florida has a comprehen-
sive commitment to excellence in international education.
It extends from foreign language instruction, area studies


This expansion has resulted in the creation of a Center for
Latin American Studies, a Center for African Studies, a
Center for Tropical Agriculture, an Office for International
Studies and Programs, a program in international relations,
and an English Language Institute for speakers of other
languages. Programs in African and Asian languages and
literatures, 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, Middle America,
and Southeast Asia. There has also been a increase in the
number of faculty members involved in teaching and in
research within the field of international studies.
In January 1971, the University opened the $1.6 million
federally funded Graduate School and International Studies
Building, Linton E. Grinter Hall. The modern four-story
building contains faculty offices, study cubicles, and semi-
nar rooms, aswell asthe officesofthe Graduate School and
the Division of Sponsored Research, the Center for African
Studies, Program in African and Asian Languages and
Literatures, Center for Jewish Studies, and the Center for
Latin American Studies.
As an indication of the University's continuing commit-
ment to international studies and its importance to all areas
of graduate education, in September 1991, the Provost
created the Office of International Studies with the charge
of developing and coordinating the international activities
of the University. The Director of this office represents the
University on councils and committees related to interna-
tional academic activities, projects, and enterprises.

The Center for African Studies, one of 10 National
Resource Centers on Africa, funded, in part, under Title VI
of the Higher Education Act, directs and coordinates inter-
disciplinary instruction, research, and outreach related to
Africa. In cooperation with participating departments
throughout the University, the Center offers a Certificate in
African Studies at both the master's and doctoral levels. The
curriculum provides a broad foundation for students pre-
paring for teaching or other professional careers in which a
knowledge of Africa is essential.
Graduate Fellowships and Assistantships.-Students
admitted to the Graduate School in pursuit of degrees
offered by participating departments are eligible to com-
pete for graduate assistantships and Title VI Foreign Lan-
guage and Area Studies fellowships.
Extracurricular Activities.--The Center sponsors an an-
nual conference on an African topic, a weekly colloquium
series--BARAZA-with invited speakers, and a biweekly
film series. The Carter Lectures on Africa are held through-
out the academic year. The Center also directs an extensive
out-reach program addressed to public schools, commu-
nity colleges, and universities nationwide.
Library Resources.-The Center for African Studies pro-
vides direct support for African library acquisitions to meet
the instructional and research needs of its faculty and
students. The Africana Collection numbers over 80,000
volumes. The Map Library contains 360,000 maps and

International Relations, a field of specialization leading
to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, is offered through the
Department of Political Science. In addition to the M.A. and
Ph.D. with a major in political science which may include
a field in international relations, the University offers an
M.A. and Ph.D. with a major in political science--interna-
tional relations. The political science-international rela-
tions program is designed to provide professional educa-
tion to those whose primary interest is a career in foreign
relations, whether in the public or private sector. Require-
ments for the M.A. are an interdisciplinary core of 12 credits
and 27 credits in three discipline-based tracks. Two of the
three tracks must be in political science; the third may be
chosen from a wide range of disciplines, including eco-

The Florida Engineering and Industrial Experiment Sta-
tion (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 primary purposes are to perform research
which benefits the state's industries, health, welfare, and
public services; to help enhance the national competitive
posture through the development of new materials, de-
vices, and processes; and to enhance the undergraduate
and graduate engineering education of students by provid-
ing them with the significant opportunity of participating in
hands-on, state-of-the-art research experiences.
The EIES-the research arm of the College-is well
recognized nationally and internationally for the quality
and breadth of its programs. These span the realms of outer
space, the oceans and the earth, and include topics such as
materials; intelligent machines; process systems; computer
technologies and systems; construction and manufacturing
technologies; mechanical, electrical, and structural de-
signs; robotics; computer-aided design and manufacturing;
energy systems; and a broad spectrum of research related to
the "public sector," i.e., agricultural, civil, coastal, and
environmental engineering.

not confined to) three broad areas: 1) the communicatorss,
i.e., the physiological/physical/psychological processes by
which individuals generate and transmit communicative
signals (speech), 2) the respondentss, and how receptive
(hearing) and neural mechanisms function to process sig-
nals within a variety of environments, and 3) the message,
i.e., the codes and signs (language) that constitute the sum
total of these communicative messages. The IASCP faculty
includes students and scientists with a variety of interests
and training. Expertise is represented by the phonetic
sciences, speech pathology and audiology, psychology,
psycholinguistics, linguistics, anthropology,
psychoacoustics, auditory neurophysiology, electrical en-
gineering, computer sciences, physics, communication
studies, bilingual communication, biocommunication,den-
tistry, and medicine.
As stated, IASCP's overall research effort is basically an
interdisciplinary one, but the focus of each investigator's
interests is the advancement of knowledge about human
communication. For information, write the Director, Insti-

tion of coal and natural gas for oil backout and pollution
prevention evolved in 1981 from this effort. In 1985 an
industrial scale boiler at Tacachale, an institution in
Gainesville for developmentally disabled persons, was
made available for co-combution studies. The following
year the Center acquired by donation an institutional
incinerator that has subsequently been used for a number
of multifuel combustion and toxic minimization studies.
Studies at Tacachale (an Indian word meaning to build
a better fire) strongly support the use of "green technolo-
gies" or "cradle to grave" environmental perspectives in
conjunction with clean combustion technologies. This
work has led to the formation of the Clean Combustion
Technology Laboratory (CCTL) with the auspices of the
Department of Mechanical Engineering. More recently,
ICAAS, CCTL, and the Fire Research and Test Center of the
Rinker School of Building Construction have embarked
upon a program of fire protection research to find replace-
ments for halon fire suppressants.

The Florida Insurance Research Center (FIRC) focuses
on the effects of economic and regulatory issues on both
the Florida and the national insurance market. In this
regard, scholarly research is conducted on insurance
company operations as well as the needs of insurance
consumers. The Center also supports students through
annual scholarships.
Management of the Center is by its director, and faculty
from other colleges in the University are utilized as the
need arises. For information write the Director, Florida
Insurance Research Center, 329 Business Building.

The Center conducts and facilitates collaborative inter-
disciplinary studies focusing on issues relating to policies
which affect the manner in which health care services are
delivered, funded, administered, or regulated. Faculty
and students from a broad spectrum of disciplines are
encouraged through the Center to participate in orga-
nized research activities funded through governmental or
philanthropic sources.
A goal of the Center is to develop and maintain data
bases and models which can be utilized to assist in the
analysis of existing and proposed policy alternatives
under variety of potential future scenarios. Research and
analyses are guided by the principle that better health care
legislation and more effective and efficient health services
delivery will resultfrom anticipating the legal, administra-
tive, economic, social, and ethical consequences of health
policy changes. For information, write the Director, Cen-

The Department of Agricultural Education and Commu-
nication offers major work for the degrees of Master of
Science and Master of Agriculture. The requirements for
each degree are described in the General Information
Three curriculum options for graduate study toward
either degree are offered. The extension option is for those
persons currently employed or preparing to be employed in
the cooperative extension service, including home eco-
nomics, agriculture, 4-H, and other related areas. The
teaching option is for persons who are teaching agricultural
education in the public schools and those who wish to enter
the profession and require basic certification. The farming
systems research-extension for sustainable agriculture op-
tion provides technical and social science skills and knowl-
edge for field-level technicians. Emphasis is on sustainable
agriculture in developing tropical countries.
A prospective graduate student need not have majored in
agricultural education and communications as an under-
graduate. However, students with an insufficient back-
ground in either agricultural education ortechnical agricul-
ture will need to include some basic courses in these areas
in their program.

The Department offers the Doctor of Philosophy and the
Master of Science degrees in agronomy with specialization
in crop ecology, crop nutrition and physiology, crop pro-
duction, weed science, genetics, cytogenetics, or plant
breeding. A nonthesis degree, Master of Agriculture, is
offered with a major in agronomy.
Graduate programs emphasize the development and
subsequent application of basic principles in each speciali-
zation to agronomic plants in Florida and throughout the
tropics. The continuing need for increased food supplies is
reflected in departmental research efforts. When compat-
ible with a student's program and permitted by prevailing
circumstances, some thesis and dissertation research may
be conducted wholly or in part in one or more of several
tropical countries.

Master of Architecture.-The Department of Architec-
ture offers graduate work leading to the first professional
degree, Master of Architecture. During graduate studies,
each student has the opportunity to focus on one or more
areas, including design, history and theory, urban design,
preservation, structures, and technology. The student's
overall college experience, both undergraduate and gradu-
ate programs, is intended to be a complete unit of profes-
sional education leading to practice in architecture or
related fields. Students entering the program at the Univer-
sity of Florida will matriculate in one of the following tracks:
Baccalaureate in Architecture Base.-For those students
who have a four-year baccalaureate degree from an accred-
ited architectural program and have completed 6 to 8
architecture studios, two years in residence (52 credits) are
normally required for completion of the Master of Architec-
ture degree; notification of program length is part of the
letter of acceptance and is determined by portfolio and
transcript review. ARC 6241,6355, and 6356 are required
of all graduate students in this track and are prerequisites for
the required thesis or project. Course sequences in history
and theory, technology, and structures must also be com-
Baccalaureate in Related Degree Base.-For those stu-
dents who have a baccalaureate degree with an architec-
ture or related major (art, interior design, landscape archi-
tecture) and who have completed 4 or 6 architecture or
design studies, three years of residence (83 credits, approxi-
mately) are normally required for completion of the Master
of Architecture degree; notification of program length is
part of the letter of acceptance and is determined by
portfolio and transcript review. ARC 4073, 4074, 6355,
and 6356 are required of all graduate students in this track
and are prerequisites for the required thesis or project.
(Undergraduate courses-3000 and 4000 level in the ma-
jor do not count toward the minimum requirements for the
graduate degree.) Course sequences in history and theory,
materials and methods, technology, structures, and prac-
tice must be completed.
Baccalaureate in Nonrelated Degree Base.-For those
students who have a baccalaureate degree in a nonrelated
academic area and have completed less that 4 design
studies courses, four years of residence (112 credits, ap-
proximately) are normally required for completion of the
Master of Architecture degree; notification of program
length is part of the letter of acceptance and is determined
by portfolio and transcript review. (Summer introductory
courses-such as design exploration offered by the Archi-
tecture Department-are strongly recommended.) ARC
4071, 4072, 4073, 4074, 6241, 6355, and 6356 are
required of all graduate students in this track and are
prerequisites for the required thesis or project. (Under-
