The University of Florida is a public, land-grant
research university, one of the most comprehensive in the
United States; it encompasses virtually all academic and
professional disciplines. It is the oldest and largest of
Florida's ten universities and a member of the Association
of American Universities. Its faculty and staff are dedi-
cated to the common pursuit of the University's threefold
mission: education, research, and service.
Teaching--undergraduate and graduate through the
doctorate-is the fundamental purpose of the University.
Research and scholarship are integral to the education

process and to expanding I

ng elements span all of the
academic disciplines and
nd represent the University's

obligation to lead and serve the needs of the nation, all of
Florida's citizens, and the public and private educational
systems of Florida, by pursuing and disseminating new
knowledge while building upon the past.
The University of Florida is committed to providing the
knowledge, benefits, and services it produces with quality
and effectiveness. It aspires to further national and inter-
national recognition for its initiatives and achievement in
promoting human values and improving the quality of life.


The University of Florida belongs to an ancient tradi-
tion of great universities. We participate in an elaborate
conversation among scholars and students that extends
over space and time linking the experiences of Western
Europe with the traditions and histories of all cultures, that
explores the limits of the physical and biological uni-
verses, and that nurtures and prepares generations of
educated people to address the problems of our societies.
While this university recognizes no limits on its intellec-
tual boundaries, and our faculty and students remain free
to teach and learn, to explore wherever the mind and
imagination lead, we live in a world with limits and
constraints. Out of the conflict between intellectual
aspirations and the limitations of environment comes the
definition of the University's goals.

to every university. This undergraduate foundation of
American higher education has grown more complex as
the knowledge we teach has grown more complex.
Where once we had a single track through the arts and
sciences leading to a degree, we now have multiple tracks
leading to many degrees in arts and sciences as well as in
a variety of professional schools. Yet even with many
degrees, American university undergraduate education
still rests on the fundamental knowledge of the liberal arts
and sciences.
In our academic world we recognize two rather
imprecisely defined categories of higher education: col-
leges and universities. The traditional American college
specializes in a carefully crafted four-year undergraduate
program, generally focused on the arts and sciences.
Universities extend the range of this undergraduate educa-
tion to include advanced or graduate study leading to the
Ph.D. Most American universities also include a variety
of undergraduate and graduate professional programs and
master's degree programs. The University of Florida
shares these traditions. As an American university, we
have a major commitment to undergraduate education as
the foundation of our academic organization, and we
pursue graduate education for the Ph.D. and advanced
degrees in professional fields.
We are, in addition, a major public, comprehensive,
land-grant, research university. Each of these adjectives
defines one of our characteristics, and through frequent
repetition, this description takes on the style of a ritual
incantation: rhythmic, reverent, and infrequently exam-
ined. What, then, does each of these key words mean?
Major.-Here, at the head of the list, we find one of our
most important aspirations. We will be, we must be, and
we are a major university. We define ourselves in
comparison to the best universities we can find. We need
not be the absolutely unambiguously best, but we must be
among the best universities in the world. Exact ranking of
the best universities is a meaningless exercise, but most of
us can name 60 great universities. By whatever indicator
of quality we choose, our university should fall into this
group. If we define a group of universities who share our
adjectives (major, public, comprehensive, land grant,
research), then we fall into a group of perhaps the best 15
in this country.
Public.-We exist thanks to the commitment and invest-
ment of the people of the State of Florida. Generations of
tax dollars constructed the facilities we enjoy and have


responsive to the needs of the citizens of our state. The
obligations we assume as a public university determine
many of our characteristics.
We have many more undergraduates than graduates;
we respond quickly to the needs of the state's economy;
we accommodate complex linkages with other state uni-
versities, community colleges, and K-12 public and pri-
vate institutions; and we operate in cooperative symbiosis
with our state's media. We also experience an often too-
close interaction with the political process. Private univer-
sities, that have a different profile, do not respond in the
same ways to these issues. We, as a public university,
must maintain close, continuous, and effective communi-
cation with our many publics.

Comprehensive.-This adjective recognizes the uni-
versal reach of our pursuit of knowledge. As a matter of
principle, we exclude no field from our purview. We
believe that our approach to knowledge and learning, to
understanding and wisdom, requires us to be ready to
examine any field, cultivate any discipline, and explore
any topic. Resource limits, human or financial, may
constrain us from cultivating one or another academic
subspecialty, but we accept, in principle, no limit on our
field of view. Even when we struggle with budget
problems and must reduce a program or miss an intellec-
tual opportunity, we do so only to meet the practical
constraints of our current environment. We never relin-
quish the commitment to the holistic pursuit of knowl-

Land-Grant.-Florida belongs to the set of American
universities whose mandate includes a commitment to the
development and transmission of practical knowledge. As
one of the land-grant universities identified by the Morrill
Act of 1862, Florida has a special focus on agriculture and
engineering and a mandate to deliver the practical benefits
of university knowledge to every county in the state. In our
university, the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences
and the College of Engineering respond to this definition

captures one of the

powerful cultural beliefs of our country: that knowledge
passes the test of utility by remaining vitally connected to
industry and commerce.
Research.-Research defines this university. Our
faculty dedicate themselves not only to the bedrock
function of education, not only to the land-grant function
of service, but equally to the essential activity of research.
By research we mean the effort to expand our under-
standing of the natural world, the world of the mind, and
the world of the senses. We define research to include the
theoretical abstractions of the mathematician, the experi-
mental discoveries of the geneticist, the insights of the
semiotician, the re-creations of the historian, or the
analysis of the anthropologist. We define research to
capture the business professor's analysis of economic
organization, the architect's design, and the musician's
interpretation or the artist's special vision. Research by
agronomists improves crops, and research by engineers
enhances materials. Medical and clinical research cures
and prevents disease. The list of research fields continues
as endlessly as the intellectual concerns of our faculty and
the academic vision of our colleges.
We must publish university research, whatever the
field. The musician who never performs, the scientist
whose work never appears for review by colleagues, the
historian whose note cards never become a book may
have accomplished much, but their accomplishments
remain incomplete. When we say research, we mean
research and creative activity that contributes to ~he
international public conversation about the advancement
of knowledge.

and ethnic groups. The University does not discriminate
on the basis of disability or age in admission or access to
its programs and activities. The Title IX Coordinator is Dr.
Jacquelyn D. Hart, 145 Tigert Hall (352)392-6004.

Application for Admission.-Admission forms and in-
formation concerning admission procedures should be
obtained from the department of interest. Prospective
students are urged to apply for admission as early as
possible. For some departments deadlines for receipt of
admission applications may be earlier than those stated in
the current University Calendar; prospective students
should check with the appropriate department. Applica-
tions that meet minimum standards are referred to the
graduate selection committees of the various colleges and
departments for approval or disapproval.
To be admitted to graduate study in a given department,
the prospective student must satisfy the requirements of
the department as well as those of the Graduate School.
Admission to some programs is limited by the resources

General Requirements.--The Graduate School, Uni-
versity of Florida, requires both a minimum grade average
of B for all upper-division undergraduate work and a
minimum Verbal-Quantitative total score of 1000 on the
General Test of the Graduate Record Examination. For
some departments, and in more advanced levels of gradu-
ate study, undergraduate averages or Graduate Record
Examination scores above those stated for the Graduate
School may be required. Inquiries about specific require-
ments should be addressed to the department in question.
Some colleges and departments require a reading knowl-
edge of at least one foreign language. Exceptions to the
above requirements are made only when these and other
criteria, including letters of recommendation, are re-
viewed by the department, recommended by the depart-
ment, and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
Direct admission to the Graduate School is dependent
upon the presentation of a baccalaureate degree from an
accredited college or university. Two copies of the official
undergraduate transcript should accompany all applica-
tions--one for the department and one for the Registrar.
These transcripts must be 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 applica-
tion for admission has been made.
The Board of Regents has also ruled that, in admitting
students for a given academic year, up to 10% may be
admitted as exceptions. Students admitted as exceptions
under the 10% waiver rule must present both an upper-
division grade point average and Graduate Record Exami-
nation General Test score with their applications and meet
other criteria required by the University, including excel-

Record Examination.--In addition to the
of the Graduate Record Examination which
all applicants, some departments encourage
to submit scores on one or more advanced
of the Graduate Record Examination. The
tests taken will be considered in regard to

Graduate Study in Business Administration.-Stu-
dents applying for admission to the Graduate School for
study in the Warrington College of Business Administra-
tion may substitute satisfactory scores on the Graduate
Management Admission Test (GMAT) for the Graduate
Record Examination. Students applying for admission to
the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program
must submit satisfactory scores on the GMAT. Applicants
should contact the Educational Testing Service, Princeton,
NJ 08540, for additional information.

Graduate Study in Law.-Students applying to the
graduate program leading to the degree Master of Laws in
Taxation must hold the Juris Doctor or equivalent degree
and must submit satisfactory scores on the Law School
Admission Test (LSAT).


All foreign students seeking admission to the Graduate
School are required to submit satisfactory scores on the
GRE General Test and a score of at least 550 on the TOEFL
(Test of English as a Foreign Language) with the following
1. Foreign students whose native tongue is English or
who have studied at a United States college or university
for one year or more need not submit TOEFL scores but
must submit satisfactory scores on the General Test of the
Graduate Record Examination before their applications for
admission can be considered.
2. All foreign students applying for admission fr the
Master of Business Administration program must submit
satisfactory scores from the Graduate Management Ad-
mission Test before their applications for admission will be
Foreign students whose scores on the TOEFL and verbal
portion of the GRE are not indicative of adequate writing
skills are required to write a short essay for examination.
If the skills demonstrated in the essay are not acceptable


to teach in the classroom, laboratory, or other appropriate
instructional activity. Those who score 45 to 50 are
allowed to teach on the condition that they enroll concur-
rently in ENS 4502, a course designed to help their
interpersonal and public speaking communication skills.
Students who fail to score 45 points may not be appointed
to teach. To raise their scores on the TSE, they are advised
to take ENS 4501, a course to improve general oral
language skills. They must subsequently submit a TSE or
SPEAK score of 45 or higher to be appointed to teach, and
they come under the guidelines described above.
Applicants should write to the Educational Testing
Service, Princeton, NJ 08540, for registration forms and
other information concerning TOEFL, TSE, GMAT, and
GRE. Students may register for the locally administered
SPEAK test with the Academic Spoken English Office,
1349 Norman Hall.


The University of Florida does not discriminate on the
basis of disability in the recruitment and admission of
students, in the recruitment and employment of faculty
and staff, or in the operation of any of its programs and
activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations. The
designated coordinator for compliance with Section 504
of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, is James

Students who are not eligible for direct admission may
be granted conditional 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 abilities to

scores are on the borderline of acceptability or when
specific prerequisite courses are required.

Students who have received a bachelor's degree but
have not been admitted to the Graduate School are
classified as postbaccalaureate students (6-). The admis-
sion requirements for postbaccalaureate enrollment are a
2.0 grade point average and a score of 550 on the Test of
English as a Foreign Language if the applicant is from a
non-English speaking country. Postbaccalaureate enroll-
ment is offered for the following reasons: (1) to provide a
means for students not seeking a graduate degree to enroll
in courses-included in this category would be students
who change their professional goals or wish to expand
their academic backgrounds and (2) to accommodate
students who do intend to enter a graduate program at
some future date, but need a substantial number of
prerequisite courses.
Postbaccalaureate students may enroll in graduate
courses but the work taken will not normally be transferred
to the graduate record if the student is subsequently
admitted to the Graduate School. By petition in clearly
justified cases and in conformance with regulations on
courses and credit, it is possible to transfer up to eight
semester hours of course work earned with a grade of A,
B+, or B.
Students who wish to enter the College of Education to
obtain teacher certification may not complete a program
as postbaccalaureate students. A department may accept
students in postbaccalaureate status for a limited time to
meet admission requirements for a master's degree. Inter-
ested students should write to 134 Norman Hall or call
(352) 392-0721 ext. 400 for further information.


University of Florida faculty in tenured or tenure-
accruing lines, as designated by the Florida Administrative
Code, normally may not pursue graduate degrees from this
institution. Exceptions are made for the Florida Coopera-
tive Extension Service (IFAS) county personnel, the faculty
of the P. K. Yonge Laboratory School, and University
Libraries faculty.
Under certain restrictions established by the Graduate
Council, persons holding nontenure- or nonpermanent-
status-accruing titles may pursue nonthesis master's de-
grees at the University of Florida. Any other exceptions to
this policy must be approved by the Graduate Council.
Such exceptions, if given, are rare and will only be
approved when it is determined to be in the best interest
of the University.



another SUS university, will count as credit at the Univer-
sity 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 Graduate Student Records Office, 288
Grinter Hall.
Cooperative Degree Programs.--In certain degree pro-
grams, faculty from other universities in the State Univer-
sity System hold Graduate Faculty status at the University
of Florida. In those approved areas, the intellectual re-
sources of these Graduate Faculty members are available
to students at the University of Florida.



It is the responsibility of the graduate student to
become informed and to observe all regulations and
procedures required by the program he/she 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
concerning courses and degree requirements, deficien-
cies 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
supervisory committee has been appointed, registration
approval should be the responsibility of the committee


The University of Florida assures the confidentiality of
student educational records in accordance with the State
University System rules, state statutes, and the Family

Graduate students are subject to the same rules of
behavior that govern undergraduates. The student con-
duct code is printed in the Undergraduate Catalog.


The University of Florida operates on a semestersystem
consisting of two 16-week periods and two 6-week sum-
mer terms. A credit under the semester system is equal to
1.5 quarter credits.
Minimum registration for full-time graduate students,
including trainees and fellows with stipends of $3,150 or
greater, is 12 credits. The minimum full-time registration
requirement is reduced for those students who are gradu-
ate assistants. Guidelines for minimum registration for
students on appointment are provided in the Graduate
Student Handbook and the Graduate Council Policy
Manual for Coordinators, as well as in the Financial Aid
section of this catalog.
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 adviser
for 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 University facilities and faculty time.
The minimum study load for part-time students not on
assistantship, including fellows whose stipends are less
than $3,150, is three credits during fall and spring semes-
ters and two for summer.


Undergraduate courses (1000-2999) may not be used as
any part of the graduate degree requirements, including
the 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
graduate students, with the exception described under
Undergraduate Registration in Graduate Courses. Courses
numbered 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 be taken
by a graduate student at the University of Florida.
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
Irar(hl1tP rntarc will he nffsprd in a ivlen semester and


Graduate students must conform to the Office of the
University Registrar's deadline for drops. However, under
certain circumstances, substitutions of courses, if ap-
proved by the 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.-Graduate students may receive
credit toward their degrees for courses in professional
programs (e.g. J.D., D.V.M., or M.D.) when their advisers
and graduate coordinators certify that the course work is
appropriate for their programs and when the students
receive permission from the departments and colleges
offering the courses. A list of such courses for each student
must be filed with the Graduate School Records Office.


University definitions of grades and procedures for
receiving and awarding (nonstandard grades), such as I
and W, are given in the Undergraduate Catalog.
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 require-
ment. In 5000-level courses and above, C+ and C grades
count toward a graduate degree if an equal number of
credit hours in courses numbered 5000 or higher have
been earned with grades of B+ and A, respectively. Grade
points are not designated for S and U grades; these grades
are not used in calculating the grade-point average.
Grades of S and U are the only grades awarded in
courses numbered 6910 (Supervised Research), 6940
(Supervised Teaching), 6971 (Master's Research), 6972
(Engineer's Research), 6973 (Individual Project), 7979
(Advanced Research), and 7980 (Doctoral Research).
Additional courses for which S and U grades apply are
noted in the departmental offerings.
All language courses regardless of level may be taken SI
U if the student's major is not a language and the courses
are not used to satisfy a minor. Approval is required from
the student's supervisory committee chair and the instruc-
torofthecourse. S/U approval should be made by the date
stipulated in the Schedule of Courses. All 1000 and 2000
level courses may be taken S/U. No other courses--
graduate, undergraduate, or professional-may be taken
for an S/U grade.
Deferred Grade H.-The grade of H is not a substitute
for a grade of S, U, or I. Courses for which H grades are
appropriate must be so noted in their catalog descriptions,
and must e approved by the Graduate Curriculum Com-
mittee and the Graduate School. This grade may be used
only in special situations where the expected unit of work

Upper-division undergraduate students may enroll in
5000-level courses with the permission of the instructor.
Normally, a student must have a grade point average of at
least 3.0. To enroll in 6000-level courses, a student must
have senior standing, permission of the instructor, and an
upper-division grade point average of at least 3.0.
After a student has been accepted in the Graduate
School, up to six hours of graduate-level courses earned
with a grade of A, B+, or B taken under this provision may
be applied toward a graduate degree at the University of
Florida provided credit forthe course has not been used for
an undergraduate degree and provided the transfer is
approved by the department and made as soon as the
student is admitted to a graduate program.


A graduate student who wishes to pursue degrees in two
programs concurrently must have the written approval of
the chairperson of each department involved and the
Dean of the Graduate School. Any student interested in
pursuing concurrent degrees should discuss the proposed
study with the Graduate School's Student Records staff
prior to applying for the programs. If the request is
approved, the student must be officially admitted to both
programs through regular procedures. If the student is
approved to pursue two master's programs, no more than
six hours of course work from one degree program may be
applied toward meeting the requirements for the second
master's degree. These six hours must be by petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School.


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, as soon as they are
accepted for admission.

Petitions for transfer of credit for a master's degree must
be made during the student's first term of enrollment in the
Graduate School.
Nonresident or extension work taken at another institu-
tion may not be transferred to the University of Florida for
graduate credit. No courses taken by correspondence may
be used toward a graduate degree.
Supervisory Committee.-The student's supervisory
committee should be appointed as soon as possible after
the student has been admitted to the Graduate School but
in no case later than the second semester of graduate
Supervisory committees for graduate degree programs
are nominated by the representative department chairper-
son, approved by the college dean, and appointed by the
Dean of the Graduate School. Only members of the
Graduate Faculty may be appointed to supervisory com-
mittees. The chairperson must be from the major depart-
ment. The Dean of the Graduate School is an ex-officio
member of all supervisory committees.
The supervisory committee for a master's degree with a
thesis must consist of at least two members selected from
the Graduate Faculty. The supervisory committee for a
master's degree without a thesis may consist of one
member of the Graduate Faculty who advises the student
and oversees the program. If a minor is designated, the
committee must include one Graduate Faculty member
from the minor department.
Language Requirements.-(1) The requirement of a
reading knowledge of a foreign language is at the discre-
tion 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.
Examination.-A final comprehensive examination must
be passed by the candidate. This examination, held on
campus with all participants present, will cover at least the
candidate's field of concentration, and in no case may it
be scheduled earlier than the term preceding the semester
in which the degree is to be conferred.
Time Limitation.-AIll work, including transferred credit,
counted toward the master's degree must be completed
during the seven years immediately preceding the date on
which the degree is awarded.


The requirements for the Master of Arts and the Master


Course Requirements.-The minimum course work
required for a master's degree with thesis is 30 credits
including up to 6 hours of the research course numbered
6971. All students seeking a master's degree with thesis
must register for an appropriate number of hours in 6971.
The Graduate School requirement for a Master of Arts or
Master of Science degree taken with a nonthesis option is
at least 32 letter-graded credits. Many departments require
more. S/U graded courses do not count in meeting the
minimum credit requirements for a nonthesis option.
Students pursuing the nonthesis option may not use the
course numbered 6971.
For both nonthesis option and thesis programs, at least
half the required credits, exclusive of 6971, must be in a
field of study designated the major. One or two minors of
at least six credits each may be taken, but a minor is not
required by the Graduate School. Minor work must be in
a department other than the major. The work in the major
field must be in courses numbered 5000 or above. For
work outside the major, courses numbered 3000 or above
may be taken.
Engineering students, working at off-campus centers,
who are pursuing a nonthesis option Master of Science
degree, must take half the course work from full-time
University of Florida faculty members and are required to
pass a comprehensive written examination administered
on the University of Florida campus by an examining
committee recommended by the Dean of the College of
Engineering and appointed by the Dean of the Graduate
Thesis.--Candidates for the master's degree with thesis
must prepare and present theses (or equivalent in creative
work) acceptable to their supervisory committees and the
Graduate School. The candidate should consultthe Gradu-
ate School Editorial Office for instructions concerning the
form of the thesis. The University Calendar specifies final

After the thesis is accepted, these two copies will be
permanently bound and deposited in the University Li-
Change from Thesis to Nonthesis Option.-A student
who wishes to change from the thesis to the nonthesis
option for the master's degree must obtain the permission
of the supervisory committee to make such a change. This
permission must be forwarded to the Graduate School at
least one full semester prior to the intended date of
graduation. The candidate must meet all the requirements
of the nonthesis option as specified above. A maximum of
three credits earned with a grade of S in 6971 (Master's
Research) can be counted toward the degree requirements
only if converted to credit as A, B+, or B in Individual
Work. The supervisory committee must indicate that the
work was productive in and by itself and warrants credit

and progress, to supervise the preparation of the thesis,
and to conduct the final examination.
Final Comprehensive Efxmination.-The student wir
elects the nonthesis option must pass 'comprehernsik
written examination on the major field of study and on the
minor if a minor is designated. This comprehins~ e
examination must be taken within six months of the date

(3) the minor or minors, and (4) matters of a general nature
pertaining to the field of study.
At least three faculty members and the candidate must
be present at the final examination. At the time of the
examination, all committee members should sign the
signature pages and the Final Examination Report. These
may be retained by the supervisory chair until acceptable
completion of corrections. This examination may not be
scheduled earlier than the semester preceding the term the
degree is to be conferred.


These degrees are designed for graduate students who
intend to teach in junior colleges. Requirements for
admission are the same as those for the regular M.A, and
M.S. degrees in the various colleges, and programs lead-
ing to the M.A.T. and M.S.T. may, with proper approval,

M.A.U.R.P.IJ.D. Joint Program.-A four-year program
leading to a Juris Doctor and a Master of Arts in Urban and
Regional Planning is offered under the joint auspices of the
College of Law and the College of Architecture, Depart-
ment of Urban and Regional Planning. The program
provides students interested in the legal problems of urban
and regional planning with an opportunity to blend law
studies with relevant course work in the planning curricu-
lum. The students receive both degrees atthe end of a four-
year course of study whereas separate programs would
require five years. Students must take the GRE and the
LSAT prior to admission, must be admitted to the two
programs simultaneously, and must complete the first year
of law school course work before comingling law and
planning courses. A thesis is required upon completion of
the course work.
Interested students should apply to both the Holland
Law Center and the Graduate School, noting on the
application the joint nature of their admission requests.
Further information on the program is available from the
Holland Law Center and from the Department of Urban
and Regional Planning.


The degree of Master of Building Construction is de-
signed for those students who wish to pursue advanced
work in management of construction, construction tech-
niques, and research problems in the construction field.
The general requirements are the same as those for
Master of Science degrees except that a minimum of 33
graduate level credits is required. At least 24 credits must
be in the School of Building Construction in graduate level
courses. Twelve credits must be earned at the 6000 level
in building construction courses and a minimum of 15
hours of 6000 level courses is required. The remaining
nine credits may be earned in other departments at the
3000 level or above when these courses are included as a
part of an approved program of study. A thesis is not
required, but an independent research study (BCN 6934)
of at least three credits is required.
When the student's course work is completed, or
practically so, and the independent research report is
complete, the supervisory committee is required to exam-
ine the student orally on (1) the independent research
report, (2) the major subjects, (3) the minor or minors, and
(4) matters of a general nature pertaining to the field of
study. The examination must be given on campus with all
participants present.

A rnL&AiIIC rn A T-rnlk

The curriculum is structured sothat students may extend
their knowledge in a specialized field. Included are
agribusiness, arts administration, decision and informa-
tion sciences, entrepreneurship, global management,
human resources, international studies, finance, manage-
ment, marketing, real estate, and sports administration.
Admission.-Applicants for admission must submit
scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test
(GMAT) as well as transcripts for all previous academic
work. Two years of professional work experience >is
required, along with written essays and personal recom-
mendations. In addition some applicants are asked to
interview. Applicants whose native language is not English
are required to submit scores for the Test of English as a
Foreign Language (TOEFL).
A heterogeneous student body is seen as an important
asset of the program, Accordingly, the backgrounds of
students include a wide range of disciplines and cultures.
The curriculum assumes no previous academic work in
managerial disciplines or business administration. How-
ever, enrolling students find introductory course work in
statistics, calculus, and financial accounting beneficial.
Traditional students are admitted for the fall semester

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
professional practice in civil engineering. The degree
requirements include a minimum number of hours of
design and professional practice instruction at the gradu-
ate 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. The thesis or report required for all
master's degrees must be design-related. Further details on
this degree program may be obtained from the Chair,
Department of Civil Engineering.
Work Required.--The minimum course work required
for the master's degree with thesis is 30 credits which may
include up to 6 credits of research numbered 6971 in all
departments. At least 12 credits, excluding 6971, must be
in the student's major field of study. A minimum of 32
credits of course work is required, with at least 16 credits
in the student's major field for the master's degrees without
thesis. The Deparment of Mechanical Engineering re-
quires a minimum of 33 credits of course work while
Environmental Engineering Sciences requires a minimum
of 34 credits of course work for degrees without a thesis.
At least 50% of the required credits must be in graduate
level courses, excluding those graded as S/U. Courses in
the major must be graduate level. If a minor is chosen, at
least six credits of work are required: two six-credit minors
may be taken. In addition, a multidisciplinary minor in
departments other than the major may be authorized by
the supervisory committee or program adviser. Courses

Examinations.-A student seeking the Master of Ehgi-
neering degree with or without thesis is required to pass a
comprehensive oral and/or written examination, adminis-
tered on campus with all participants present, at the

who is a candidate for a nonthesis degree must take half
the course work from full-time University of Florida faculty
members and is required to pass a comprehensive written
examination administered on the University of Florida
campus by an examining committee recommended bythe
Dean of the College of Engineering and appointed by the

Admission to a program of work leading to the degree
of Doctor of Education requires admission to the Graduate
A minimum of 90 credits beyond the bachelor's degree
is required for the doctoral degree. Master's degrees
outside the major require departmental petition to the
Dean of the Graduate School. All master's degrees counted
in the 90-hour minimum must have been earned within
the last seven 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 institution, to be applied toward the
Doctor of Education 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 College of Education Graduate Faculty will expect the
candidate to be prepared to answer questions, at the time
of the oral examination, in any of the areas chosen.
Admission to Candidacy.-Admission to candidacy for
the degree of Doctor of Education requires successful
completion of the qualifying examinations and approval of

after consultation with the supervisory committee.
5. 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 with the
student for the oral portion of the examination. This
examination must be given on campus. (See Examina-

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 least five faculty members, including
the supervisory committee, must be present with the
student at the oral portion. The supervisory committee has
the responsibility at this time of deciding whether the
student is qualified to continue work toward a Ph.D.
If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Gradu-
ate School must be notified. A re-examination may be
requested, but it must be recommended by the supervisory
committee and approved by the Graduate School. At least
one semester of additional preparation is considered
essential 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 chair-
person, 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 concerning overall fitness for candidacy, (3)
an approved dissertation tonic, and (4) a aualifving



Every candidate for a doctoral degree is required to
prepare and present a dissertation that shows indepen-
dent investigation and is acceptable in form and content
to the supervisory committee and to the Graduate
School. Dissertations must be written in English, except
for students pursing degrees in Romance or German
languages and literatures. Students in these disciplines,
with the approval of their supervisory committees, may
write in the topic language. A copy of each approval
should be forwarded 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 a letter of transmittal
from the supervisory chairperson, 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 Exami-
nation Report and five copies of the abstract, 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
copy, reproduced on required thesis paper, should be
delivered to the Library for hardbinding. The supervisory
chairperson 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
$50 to University Financial Services, S113 Criser Hall,
for microfilming their dissertations, and to sign an
agreement authorizing publication by microfilm.
Copyright.-The candidate may choose to copyright
the microfilmed dissertation for a charge of $35 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, candidates must give

should be considered advisory rather than mandatory.
2. The maximum delay in publication allowed for pre-
reviews should not exceed three months.
3. There should be no additional delays in publication
beyond the pre-review. Timely submission of any pate
or copyright applications should be the result of efeive
communication between investigators and sponsors
throughout the course of the project.
4. There should be no restriction on participation in
nonclassified sponsored research programs on the basis
of citizenship.
5. Students should not be delayed in the final defense
of their dissertations by agreements involving publication

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 commit-
tee meeting on campus. At least five faculty members,
including all supervisory committee members, must be
present with the candidate at the oral portion of this
examination. At the time of the defense all committee
members should sign the signature pages and all commit-
tee and attending faculty members should sign the Final
Examination Report. These may be retained by the
supervisory chair until acceptable completion of correc-
Satisfactory performance on this examination and ad
herence to all Graduate School regulations outlined
above complete the requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation.-All work for the doctorate must be
completed within five calendar years after the qualifying
examination, or this examination must be repeated.

Doctoral candidates who have completed all require-
ments for the degree, including satisfactory defense and
final acceptance of the dissertation, may request certifi-
cation to that effect prior to receipt of the degree.
Certification request forms, available in the Graduate
School Editorial Office, should be filled out by the
candidate, signed by the college dean, and returned to
the Graduate School for verification and processing.

in locating needed information.
The Libraries of the University of Florida consist of
eight libraries. Six are in the system known as the George
A. Smathers Libraries of the University of Florida and two
(Health Sciences and Law) are attached to their respective
administrative units. All of the libraries serve all the
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 collec-
tions, has been greatly expanded in recent years. It now
offers a diverse information menu. In addition to the
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 and tables of
contents databases provide citations to journal articles.
The "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
materials as it is accessible from offices, laboratories, and
dormitories or homes with workstation access to NERDC.
It contains almost all of the cataloged collections--
exceptions are some older humanities and social science
titles acquired prior to 1975 as well as some uncataloged
special, archival, map, microform, and document col-
lections. Access to many of these collections is available
through specialized catalogs in Special Collections and
Documents, 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
instructions for self help.

volumes, 4,200,000 microforms, 1,000,000 documents,
550,000 maps, and 20,000 computer datasets. The
Libraries have built a number of nationally significant
research collections primarily in support of graduate
research programs. Among them are the Baldwin Library
of Children's Literature which is among the world's
greatest collections of literature for children (Smathers
Library, Special Collections); the Map and Imagery
Library which is an extensive repository of maps, atlases,
aerial photographs, and remote sensing imagery with
particular collection strengths for the southeastern United
States, Florida, Latin America, and Africa south of the

Sahara (Marston Science Library, Level One);
and Ray Price Library of judaica which is th

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

borrow reserves, and to establish identity for other library
services such as Interlibrary Loan, online searching, and
remote access to databases. Reference service is pro-
vided to library users in each library and is also available
via telephone and E-Mail. All of the libraries provide
special services to assist students and faculty with disabili-
ties in their use of the libraries; information is available at
all circulation desks. At the beginning of each semester,
the Libraries offer orientation programs designed to teach
those new to campus what services are available and how
to use them. Schedules are posted in each library at the
beginning of each term. Individual assistance is available
at the reference desk in each library. In addition, instruc-
tional librarians will work with faculty and teaching
assistants to develop and present course specific library
instruction sessions. Instruction coordinators are avail-
able in Humanities and Social Science Reference 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
information 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 via CyberLibrary. Users may
schedule a meeting with the appropriate specialist.
The Libraries memberships in the Research Libraries
Group and the Center for Research Libraries give faculty
and students access to many major scholarly collections.
In addition, the libraries are linked to major national and
international databases such as RLIN, OCLC, NEXIS/

The Florida Museum of Natural History 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 Florida


no admission chage. The new Education and Exhibition
Center (Powell Hall) opens in January 1998 and is located
between the Ham Museum of Art and the Performing Arts
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 with the
study and expansion of the research collections of ani-
mals; Anthropology, whose staff members are concerned
with the study of historic and prehistoric people and their
cultures; Interpretation, staffed by specialists in the inter-
pretation of knowledge through museum exhibit tech-
niques and education programs. Members of the scientific
and educational staff of the Museum hold dual appoint-
ments in appropriate teaching departments. Through these
appointments, they participate in both undergraduate and
graduate teaching programs.
The Allyn Museum of Entomology, Sarasota, is part of
the Department of Natural Sciences of the Florida Museum
of Natural History. The combined Sarasota and Gainesville
holdings in Lepidoptera rank the Allyn Museum of Ento-
mology as the largest in the western hemisphere and the
premier Lepidoptera research center in the world. The
Allyn Museum publishes the Bulletin of the Allyn Museum
of Entomology and sponsors the Karl Jordan Medal. The
Allyn Collection serves as a major source for taxonomic
and biogeographic research by a number of Museum and
Department of Zoology faculty and students, as well as a
great many visiting entomologists from around the world.
The Swisher Memorial Sanctuary and the Ordway
Preserve 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 research 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 for the
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
holdings. Materials are constantly being added to the
collections both through gifts from friends and as a result
of research activities of the Museum staff. The archaeo-

The overall objective of IASCP is the maintenance of a
scientific center of excellence focused on human com-
municative behavior. The Institute's program includes
(but is not confined to) three broad areas: 1) the
communicatorss, i.e., the physiological/ physical/psy-
chological processes by which individuals generate and
transmit communicative signals (speech), 2) the
respondentss, and how receptive (hearing) and neural
mechanisms function to process signals 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 sci-
ences, speech pathology and audiology, psychology,
psycholinguistics, linguistics, anthropology, psychoa-
coustics, auditory neurophysiology, electrical engineer-
ing, computer sciences, physics, communication stud-
ies, 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,

The Office of Research, Technology and Graduate
Education (ORTGE) consists of the Division of Sponsored
Research, the Graduate School, and the Division of
Entrepreneurial Programs. ORTGE was formed in 1993
by the mergingof the Division of Sponsored Research and
the Graduate School and is headed by the Vice President
for Research/Dean of the Graduate School.
The Division of Sponsored Research (DSR) has two
general functions: (1) the promotion and administration
of the sponsored research program and (2) the support of
the total research program of the University for maximum
benefit to the University and the greatest service to the
State of Florida. DSR seeks to stimulate the growth of
research and to expand balanced research efforts through-
out the University. These activities directly support the
graduate program.
Policies and procedures of DSR are developed by a
Board of Directors working with the Vice President for
Research and Dean of the Graduate School within the
administrative policies and procedures of the University.
The Sponsored Research Steering Committee considers
well formulated substantive issues of policy and strategic
planning for the University related to research adminis-
tration. The Vice President/Dean meets monthly with the

Fisher School of Accounting and the Warrington College
of Business Administration. Its mission is twofold: to
promote a scholarly environment for research on relevant
issues in accounting and to offer quality professional
education programs in accounting and business. CARPE is
responsible for accounting research seminars, academic
conferences, a working paper series, and the publication
of the Journal of Accounting Literature. The Center holds
several conferences each year on issues of national interest
to professional and business communities, and coordi-
nates faculty participation in professional education. For

The Center (ICAAS) is a community of scholars drawn
from many disciplines represented at the University of
Florida who are seeking solutions to problems related to
anthropogenic emissions to the atmosphere. Pollution
prevention was the central approach chosen in a broad
interdisciplinary effort initiated by ICAAS in 1970. In
effect, its purpose was to transfer successful industrial and
military experience with preventative maintenance into
the environmental arena. Faculty members from societal,
medical, engineering, and atmospheric science disci-
plines have been associated with ICAAS.
The first major interdisciplinary study, initiated in 1972,
was on determining the biological impacts of stratospheric
ozone depletion. The next major interdisciplinary study
was a coal burning issues project awarded in 1979 to

acquired by donation an institutional incinerator that has
subsequently been used fora numberof multifuel combus-
tion and toxic minimization studies.
Studies at Tacachale (an indian word meaning to build
a better fire) strongly support the use of "green technoto-
gies" or "cradle to grave" environmental perspectives in
conjunction with clean combustion technologies. Tis
work led ICAAS to form the Clean Combustion Techril6-
ogy Laboratory (CCTL) with the joint auspices of the
Department of Mechanical Engineering. Recently, the
CCTL has undertaken fire protection research to find
replacements for halon fire suppressants. Most recently,
the CCTL has embarked upon gasification studies for
combustion turbine applications.
For further information on these and other research
programs that address anthropogenic emission and ther-
mal energy problems, write the Director, Professor A:E&S.
