(Title VI, Title IX, Section 504) and state laws and regulations. 
Inquiries regarding compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, or related legal 
requirements should be directed to:

In addition to the university's statement of compliance with federal 
and state laws, the University Human Relations Code notes that 
the University of Maryland, College Park, affirms its commitments 
to a policy of eliminating discrimination of the basis of race, color, 
creed, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, personal appear- 
ance, age, national origin, political affiliation, physical or mental 
disability, or on the basis of the exercise of rights secured by the 
First Amendment of the United States Constitution. 

Complete texts of the University Human Relations Code and the 
Campus Policies and Procedures on Sexual Harassment are print- 
ed in Chapter 10, Appendix A and Appendix B. 

Disclaimer: The provisions of this publication are not to be regard- 
ed as a contract between the student and tlie University of 
IVIaryland. Changes are effected from time to time in the general 
regulations and in the academic requirements. There are estab- 
lished procedures for making changes, procedures which protect 
the institution's integrity and the individual student's interest and 
welfare. A curriculum or graduation requirement, when altered, is 
not made retroactive unless the alteration is to the student's 
advantage and can be accommodated within the span of years nor- 
mally required for graduation. The university cannot give assurance 
that all students will be able to take all courses required to com- 
plete the academic program of their choice within eight semesters. 
Additionally, because of space limitations in limited enrollment pro- 
grams, the university may not be able to offer admission to all qual- 
ified students applying to these programs. 

When the actions of a student are judged by competent authority, 
using established procedure, to be detrimental to the interests of 
the university community, that person may be required to withdraw 
from the university. For the complete University of Maryland Code 
of Student Conduct, see Chapter 10, Appendix C. 

Residency Ciasslflcation: For admission, tuition, and charge dif- 
ferential purposes, students are classified as in-state or out-of- 
state residents. Residency status is initially determined when a 
student's application for admission is being considered. For more 
information on the guidelines used to determine residency classifi- 
cation see Chapter 1 and Chapter 10, Appendix H of this catalog. 



Questions regarding residency status or petitions for reclassifica- 
tion should be directed to the Residency Classification Office, 
1118 Mitchell Building, (301) 405-2030. 

Important Information on Fees and Expenses: Notwithstanding 
any other provision of this or any other university publication, the 
university reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees, and 
other charges at any time deemed necessary by the university and 
the University System of Maryland Board of Regents. Although 
changes in fees and charges ordinarily will be announced in advance, 
the university reserves the right to make such changes without prior 
announcement. 

All students who register incur a financial obligation to the univer- 
sity. Those students who register and subsequently decide not to 
attend must notify the Office of the Registrar Office, 1113 Mitchell 
Building, in writing, priorto the first day of classes. If this office has 
not received a request for cancellation by 4:30 p.m. of the last day 
before classes begin, the university will assume the student plans 
to attend and accepts his or her financial obligation. After classes 
begin, students who wish to terminate their registration must follow 
the withdrawal procedures and are liable for charges applicable at 
the time of withdrawal. 

State of Maryland legislation has established a State Central 
Collections Unit, and in accordance with state law, the university is 
required to turn over all delinquent accounts to it for collection and 
legal follow-up. This is done automatically on a month-to-month 
basis by computer read-out. Collection costs incurred in collecting 
delinquent accounts will be charged to the student. The minimum 
collection fee is 17%, plus any attorney and/or court costs. 

Gender Reference: The masculine gender whenever used in this 
document is intended to include the feminine gender as well. 

Smoking Policy: It is hereby established as the policy of the 
University of Maryland, College Park, to achieve a public environ- 
ment as close to smoke-free as practicably possible. See Chapter 
10, Appendix E of this catalog for the complete "Smoking Policy and 
Guidelines." 

Disclosure of Information: In accordance with "The Family 
Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974" (P.L. 93-380), popu- 
larly referred to as the "FERPA," disclosure of student information, 
including financial and academic, is restricted. Release to anyone 
other than the student requires a written waiver from the student.

CHAPTER 1 



Admission Requirements and 
Application Procedures 



FRESHMAN ADMISSION 

The University of IVIaryland, College Parl<, is a publicly supported, land- 
grant, research institution dedicated primarily to the educational needs of 
Maryland residents. Within its responsibilities as a state institution, the 
university attracts a cosmopolitan student body and each year offers 
admission to a number of promising students from other states and 
jurisdictions. Currently, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 3 territories, 
and more than 150 foreign countries are represented in the undergraduate 
population. Admission policies are determined by the Board of Regents. 

We seek academically successful applicants with diverse backgrounds, 
geographic origins, and personal experiences, and who demonstrate the 
potential to contribute significantly to the university's campus and 
community life. The Admission Committee considers each application for 
freshman admission individually, reviewing the student's academic record, 
the rigor of the student's high school academic program, standardized 
admission test scores, class rank (if available), essay, extracurricular 
activities, counselor recommendation, and other letters of recommendation. 
Maryland residency, special talents and/or abilities, personal background, 
and Maryland alumni/ae affiliation may be taken into consideration. 

As prescribed by the Board of Regents, the university expects all applicants, 
at a minimum, to have completed by high school graduation the following 
course work: four years of English; three years of mathematics, including 
Algebra I or Applied Math I and II, Formal Logic or geometry; Algebra II; three 
years of history or social science; three years of science in at least two 
different areas with at least two lab sciences; and two years of a foreign 
language. These criteria represent the minimum requirements to be 
considered for admission. Successful applicants typically present academic 
credentials which exceed the minimum, several honors and/or Advanced 
Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, and additional 
academic electives. A fourth year of mathematics is strongly recommended. 

Admission to the University of Maryland is competitive. Each year, we 
receive more than 22,000 applications for a fall freshman class of 4,025. 
As a result, we are unable to offer admission to all students who have the 
ability to be academically successful at Maryland. 

High School Record 

In general, the University of Maryland requires freshman applicants to earn 
a high school diploma prior to their first registration at the university. 
Applicants should make sure that final high school transcripts are sent to 
the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to enrolling. All offers of 
admission are contingent upon satisfactory completion of current work. 

Each applicant's previous academic achievement is reviewed according to 
the information available on the student's high school transcript through 
eleventh grade. In some cases, mid-year grades for the senior year will also 
be considered. The Admission Committee considers the following academic 
criteria when evaluating candidates for admission: nature and rigor of 
course load, grades in academic courses, progress as reflected in grades 
over time, and performance compared with high school peers. High school 
grades will be reviewed in the context of the level of course work taken. 



Standardized Admission Test Scores 

All freshman applicants must present results from either the ACT with the 
writing test or the SAT. Test results should be submitted directly to the 
University of Maryland, College Park, by the American College Testing 
Program for the ACT or the Educational Testing Service for the SAT. The 
applicant is strongly urged to include his or her social security number 
when registering for either test. The social security number will expedite 
processing of the application for admission. The reporting code for the 
University of Maryland, College Park, is 1746 for applicants submitting the 
ACT, and 5814 for those submitting the SAT. The university strongly 
recommends that these tests be taken as early as possible, but no later 
than December for priority applicants and January for general applicants. 
Further information on both tests may be obtained from high school 
guidance counselors or directly from the American College Testing Program, 
Iowa City, lA 52243 (www.act.org) and the Educational Testing Service, 
Princeton, NJ 08540 (www.collegeboard.com). 

Additional Criteria 

Priority for admission is given to those students who demonstrate 
outstanding academic success as measured by the nature and the rigor of 
their curricula and academic achievements and by their aptitude for college 
success as evidenced by their performance on nationally normed 
standardized tests. We also seek to admit students who will contribute to 
Maryland's campus and community life and look for evidence of this by 
considering applicants' extracurricular activities and personal backgrounds. 
The most successful applicants, however, demonstrate a balance of 
outstanding academic achievement and extracurricular involvement. 

Most successful applicants submit the required personal essay, counselor 
recommendation, and an academic subject area teacher recommendation, 
a list of extracurricular activities, and response to short answer questions. 

Application Forms 

Undergraduate application forms may be requested and submitted 
on-line via the web at www.uga.umd.edu, by calling 1-800-422-5867 or 
301-314-8385, by sending an electronic mail message to um- 
admit@uga.umd.edu, by writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 
Mitchell Building, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742-5235, or 
by visiting your high school guidance office. 

Application Fee 

A non-refundable application fee is required with each application. The fee 
for U.S. citizens and permanent residents is $55; the fee for international 
students and non-immigrants is $55. 

Fall Semester Freshman Admission 

The University of Maryland strongly encourages all applicants to apply by 
our priority application deadline to assure best consideration for admission, 
merit scholarships, and invitation to the University Honors Program or 
College Park Scholars. A completed application includes an official high 
school transcript, SAT or ACT scores, essay, guidance counselor 
recommendation form. Part I application form, and application fee. 



2 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



The University utilizes a two part application. Students who submit completed 
applications by the priority application deadline of December 1 will be mailed 
a decision letter by mid-February. Students who submit completed 
applications by the general application deadline of January 20 will be mailed 
a final admission decision on April 1. Applications received after January 20 
are reviewed on a space-available basis. Because of space limitations, the 
university is unable to offer admission to all qualified applicants.

Early Admission Options for High-Achieving High School 
Students 

Concurrent Enroiiment: Talented high school seniors have the opportunity 
to enroll at the University of Maryland for two courses, or seven credits, 
each semester. Successful applicants will have pursued a rigorous high 
school program and will have indicated exceptional performance and ability 
achieved over time. To apply, students must submit: the completed 
application and fee; high school transcript; an essay explaining why they 
are interested in the program; a letter of recommendation from the high 
school; and a letter of permission from the parents or guardian. Students 
must live within commuting distance. Tuition is assessed on a per-credit- 
hour basis. All mandatory fees apply in full. 

Summer Enroiiment: High school students with a strong high school record 
may be considered for enrollment in courses during the summer preceding 
their junior or senior year. They must file a regular application for 
undergraduate admission, including an official high school transcript. 
Tuition is assessed on a per-credit-hour basis. All mandatory fees apply 
in full. 

Appiication Deadlines: 

Spring: January 2 
Summer: May 1 
Fall: August 1 



Early Admission: Although the University of Maryland generally requires 
applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to their first full-time 
registration, the university will admit a limited number of well-qualified 
students without high school diplomas. Successful applicants will have 
pursued a rigorous high school program and will have indicated exceptional 
performance and ability achieved over time. Students must be within two 
credits of high school graduation and have the commitment of the high 
school to award a diploma after successful completion of the freshman 
year at Maryland. To apply, students must submit: the completed 
application and fee, high school transcript and SAT or ACT results, an 
essay explaining how they will benefit from the program, and a letter of 
permission from the parents or guardian and a letter of support from the 
high school. Early admission students are eligible for on-campus housing, 
scholarships based on academic achievement, the University Honors 
Program, and College Park Scholars. Early application is advised. 

Gifted Student Admission: The university will consider for admission a 
limited number of gifted students who have completed at least the seventh 
grade. Competitive applicants must have superior academic records as 
measured by grades and standardized test scores. Students must have an 
initial conference with a member of the Undergraduate Admissions staff. 
The Admission staff member may, if it is deemed helpful to the admission 
decision, make referrals for further assessment to campus counseling 
services. Students admitted under this category are usually limited to six 
credits of enrollment per semester. 

Students With Learning Disabilities 

The University of Maryland expects that all students admitted to its degree 
programs will fulfill all of the published requirements for graduation. These 
requirements are widely published and include fundamental studies in 
English and mathematics, as well as other general education requirements 
of the CORE program, and all curriculum requirements of the major program 
and the degree-granting college or school. Students should not accept an 
offer of admission with the expectation that any requirement will be waived. 
For additional information about the admission process for students with 
documented learning disabilities, please contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions. 

High School Equivalency Examination (GED) 

Maryland residents who are at least 16 years of age and who have not 
received a high school diploma may be considered for admission provided 
they have earned the high school General Education Equivalency (GED) 
certificate. In order to be considered for admission, the applicant must 
present an above average total score as well as above average scores on 
each of the five parts of the test. 

Non-Accredited/Non-Approved High School 

students from non-accredited/non-approved high schools who seek 
admission to the University of Maryland should contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions for information. 



ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) CREDIT 

The University of Maryland encourages applicants to seek AP credit so that 
academically successful students may move forward in their programs at 
an appropriate pace. However, credit is not granted for all exams offered by 
the College Board. Credits are accepted and courses are exempted, based 
on departmental approval, according to the chart on the following pages. 
Students should arrange to have their scores sent directly to the University 
of Maryland from the Educational Testing Service; the code is 5814. 
Students should also inform their advisors at Orientation that they 
anticipate receiving AP credit because this information may affect their 
placement in subject-matter courses. 

If a student has already received AP credit at another institution, this credit 
will be reevaluated. The score received must be equivalent to the minimum 
score the University of Maryland accepted at the time the test was taken; 
othenwise, the credit will not be eligible for transfer. AP credits that are 
accepted are recorded as transfer credit on University of Maryland records 
and figure in the total number of credits earned toward graduation. 
Students may not receive AP credit for an equivalent course taken at the 
University of Maryland or elsewhere. If students earn credit in a course 
equivalent to an AP exam for which they also earned credit, the AP credit 
will be deleted from their records. Students should check with their 
advisors for detailed information on the assignment of AP credit.

Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 7 



Please note that the chart represents a general outline of AP credit. In all 
cases, credit is available only for grades of 3 or higher, subject to ongoing 
departmental reevaluation. All departments reserve the right to reevaluate 
the content of exams and to change the assignment of credit and course 
equivalencies. Any new exams offered after February 15 may or may not be 
evaluated by the appropriate department. Students should check with their 
advisor at Orientation. 

Certain departments, particularly Mathematics and Physics, have separate 
criteria for placement in courses and the assignment of credit. Students 
should check with those departments for additional information. All 
entering freshmen will be placed in math courses according to the 
University of Maryland math placement exam. 

International Baccalaureate (IB) Examination Credit 

The University of Maryland awards credit to students who sit for 
International Baccalaureate exams according to the table on the previous 
page. Interested students should contact the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions for additional information. 

Note: Credit awards and course equivalencies are subject to change. 



ADMISSION TO LIMITED ENROLLMENT 
PROGRAMS (LEP) 

Certain colleges, schools, and departments within the university have taken 
steps to limit enrollment in order to maintain quality programs. For the 
2006-2007 academic year these included the School of Architecture, 
Planning and Preservation, Robert H. Smith School of Business, A. James 
Clark School of Engineering, Department of Government and Politics, 
Department of Biological Resources Engineering, Philip Merrill College of 
Journalism, Department of Natural Resource Sciences and Landscape 
Architecture, Department of Psychology, Department of Communication and 
College of Education. LEP progr ams are continually reviewed. Students 
should check the LEP Web site ath 



www.lep.uind.edu )r contact the Limited 
Enrollment Program Admissions uooramator at dui-il4-8385 for updated 
information. 

Freshmen: Admission for new freshmen to Limited Enrollment Programs is 
competitive. Because space may be limited for a particular major, early 
application is encouraged. Freshmen who are directly admitted to an LEP 
will be subject to a performance review when they complete 45 college 
credits. The review varies from program to program, but always includes 
satisfactory performance in a set of appropriate courses. Students not 
passing the review will be required to choose another major. See the 
academic program description for specific details. 

Freshmen not directly admitted to an LEP may be assigned to the Division 
of Letters and Sciences or to a general major within the LEP college 
requested. Students are not guaranteed admission to an LEP at a later 
date, although they may gain admission by meeting the requirements 
outlined in their particular program by the time they complete 45 or 60 
credits at Maryland. See the following section on LEP transfer admission 
and the LEP program descriptions for further details about this option. 

Transfers: Transfer students and on-campus students wishing to change 
their major to an LEP must meet a set of gateway courses with minimum 
grades in order to be admitted to the program. Space is limited in each 
program, and the most qualified applicants will be admitted each semester. 
Additional information for each of the limited-enrollment programs may be 
found in the descriptions of academic majors in chapters 6 and 7. 

Transfer students who are not directly admissible to an LEP upon 
application to the university will be assigned to an alternate program. 
Those with fewer than 60 credits will be assigned to the Division of Letters 
and Sciences, and will be allowed the opportunity to meet the gateway 
requirements by the time they complete 45 or 60 credits. Students with 
more than 60 credits will be admitted to an interim program possibly within 
the LEP college requested where they will be advised regarding 
their qualifications for the LEP and, in some cases, the need to choose 
another major. 

Second Major: Enrolled students interested in adding an LEP as a second 
major should consult chapter 4. 



Pre-Professional Programs 

While professional schools do not require, favor, or prefer specific majors, 
the pre-professional advisors in the Law and Health Professions Advising 
Office (LHPAO) of the Division of Letters and Sciences can provide guidance 
concerning the choice of major. Undecided students may enter the Division 
of Letters and Sciences, but must adhere to the University of Maryland 
policy, that students declare a degree-granting major by the time they reach 
60 credits. 

For further information, see the section on "Pre-Professional Advising and 
Programs" in this catalog and visit www.ltsc.umd.edu/lawhealth.html 



SPECIAL APPLICANTS 

Golden Identification Card Program 

The University of Maryland participates in the Golden Identification Card Program. 
The institution will make available courses and various services to persons who 
are 60 years of age or older, who are legal residents of the State of Maryland 
and who are retired (not engaged in gainful employment for more than 20 hours 
per week). When persons eligible for this program are admitted to the university, 
they register on a space-available basis for credit courses as regular or special 
students in any session and receive a Golden Identification card. Golden ID 
students must meet all course prerequisite and co-requisite requirements. 
Tuition is waived for these courses; however, a Golden ID administrative fee is 
assessed every semester. Golden ID students may register for a maximum of 
three courses per term. Golden ID students are not eligible for Consortium 
courses. The Golden Identification Card will entitle eligible persons to certain 
academic services, including the use of the libraries and the shuttle bus service. 
Such services will be available during any session only to persons who have 
registered for one or more courses for that semester. Golden ID students also 
have the opportunity to become involved with the Golden ID Student Association, 
which provides cultural and social events, course recommendations, and peer 
advising. Additional information may be obtained from the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions, Ground Floor, Mitchell Building: 301-314-8385, or 
the Special Programs Office, 1108 Mitchell Building: 301-314«237. 

Non-Degree Seeking Students 

Applicants who qualify for admission but do not desire to work toward a 
baccalaureate degree may be admitted as non-degree-seeking students. 

Non-degree-seeking students who have received a baccalaureate degree 
are advised that no credit earned while enrolled may be applied at a later 
date to a graduate program. These post-baccalaureate students may enroll 
in undergraduate courses for which they possess the necessary 
prerequisites, but may not enroll in courses restricted to graduate students 
only. Students who wish to take courses at the graduate level (600 and 
above) must contact the Graduate School for information concerning 
admission requirements for Advanced Special Student status. 

Non-degree-seeking students who do not have a baccalaureate degree 
must submit transcripts and meet regular admission standards. Transcripts 
are not required from students with baccalaureate degrees from a 
regionally accredited institution. Because of space limitation, several 
departments require permission be given in advance to register for classes 
as a non-degree student. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions for further information. 

Non-degree-seeking students who are taking classes to transfer 
immediately back to another institution may apply without academic 
transcripts. These applicants must, in lieu of transcripts, submit official 
documentation from that institution granting permission to take course 
work at the University of Maryland for that particular semester. 

Returning Students and Veterans 

Applicants who have not attended school for more than five years, or who 
have had military experience, should contact both an admissions counselor 
and the Returning Students Program: 301-314-7693. Veterans should also 
contact the Veterans Affairs Office: 301-314-8239.

averages and from the credits applied tow/ard graduation requirements. The 
information on academic requirements and regulations is in chapter 4. 



INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADMISSION 

The University of Maryland seeks to enroll international students w/ho 
demonstrate strong academic performance w/ith records suggesting 
potential for success at Maryland. Admission is competitive and is offered 
to applicants whose academic credentials indicate marks of "very good" to 
"excellent." Due to space limitations and the competitive nature of 
undergraduate admission at the University of Maryland, an international 
applicant should submit a complete application as early as possible, and 
always before the deadlines listed in this section. Applications completed 
after a deadline will not be considered for that semester, but will be 
reviewed for the following semester. Evaluation of an applicant's 
credentials will take place only after all application materials are received. 
Decisions are released in writing on a rolling basis.

semester hours of university-level credit past secondary school at the time 
you plan to enter the University of Maryland. Successful transfer applicants 
demonstrate better than average grades in strong academic courses, 
proficiency in English, and evidence of sufficient funds to cover all 
expenses. Due to space limitations, we are unable to offer admission to all 
students who have the ability to be academically successful at the 
University of Maryland. 

The Fall final deadline for applications to be received is March 1. The 
Spring (January) final deadline is August 1. 

All of the following documents must be submitted before the transfer final 
deadline for an applicant to be considered for undergraduate admission; 
International Student Application for Undergraduate Admission; 
nonrefundable application fee (U.S. $55.00); all official university or college 
transcripts in native language with certified literal English translations; 
proof of English proficiency; statement of activities; and Certification of 
Finances, including supporting documents that demonstrate support of U.S. 



$33,595 per year. Current F-1 and J-1 Visa Holders must also provide 
photocopies of their 1-94 Arrival/Departure Record, visa stamp, and current 
1-20 or DS-2019 form. Current other non-immigrant Visa Holders must also 
provide photocopies of their 1-94 Arrival/Departure Record and visa stamp. 
Students with fewer than 30 semester hours must also provide official 
secondary school transcripts in native language with certified literal English 
translations and, where appropriate, official results and certificate of 
completion from a national secondary school examination. 

English Proficiency 

Non-native English speakers (regardless of citizenship) who seek admission 
to the University of Maryland must verify their proficiency in English by 
taking and submitting an official score report from one of the following 
English proficiency exams; TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language); 
or lELTS (International English Language Test System). Those whose native 
language is English, who earn an SAT critical reading score of 480 or 
higher, or who have earned a post-secondary degree from a university in an 
English-speaking country do not need to take or submit scores from an 
English proficiency exam. Transfer credit for an English composition course 
does not waive the English proficiency exam. 

Visa Records 

Applicants Residing Outside of the United States; To enter the United 
States, international students residing abroad will need a passport from 
their government and a visa from the U.S. Consulate. In order to obtain a 
visa for the purposes of studying in the United States, the applicant must 
present a Certificate of Eligibility form to the U.S. Consulate. The university 
will issue this form to admitted students who have submitted proof of 
having sufficient funds to cover the cost of a program of study. Admitted 
students with personal, family, or other source of private funding will be 
issued the Certificate of Eligibility form 1-20 in order to obtain the F-1 
Student Visa. Admitted students who are sponsored by agencies, 
foundations, or their home government, or are participating in an 
established exchange program may be issued the Certificate of Eligibility 
form DS-2019 in order to obtain the J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa. 

Applicants Currently Residing in the United States; Applicants currently 
holding F-1 Student or J-1 Exchange Visitor status in the United States 
need to submit a photocopy of their 1-94 Arrival/Departure Record, visa 
stamp, and current 1-20 or DS-2019 form along with proof of having 
sufficient funds to cover the cost of a program of study. Applicants holding 
another type of non-immigrant status need to submit a photocopy of their I- 
94 Arrival/Departure Record and visa stamp, and must indicate if they 
intend to seek a change to F-1 Student or J-1 Exchange Visitor status. Upon 
admission and submission of the appropriate financial support 
documentation, the university will issue the appropriate Certificate of 
Eligibility form (1-20 or DS-2019) to the student. 



TRANSFER ADMISSION 

A student who has attended any regionally accredited institution of higher 
education following graduation from high school and attempted 12 or more 
credits will be considered for admission as a transfer student. Transfer 
applicants must be in good academic and disciplinary standing at their 
previous institutions to be eligible for transfer to the University of Maryland. 

When the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number that 
can be accommodated at this institution, or in a particular professional 
or specialized program, admission will be based on the overall strength of 
the student's academic performance. 

Requirements 

Admission for transfer applicants is primarily based on the number of 
credits a student has earned and academic achievement for all college- 
level work. In calculating eligibility, the university will use the average 
stated on the transcript by the sending institution. When an applicant has 
attended more than one institution, a cumulative average for all previous 
college work attempted will be computed. To be considered, course work 
must have been completed at a regionally accredited college or university. 
All students with grade point averages below 3.0 will be considered on a 
space-available basis. Students who were not admissible as high school 
seniors must complete at least 30 semester hours with the grade point 
average as stated above. In accordance with Maryland Higher Education 
Commission and Board of Regents transfer policies, applicants from 
Maryland public institutions are, in some instances, given special 
consideration, and, when qualified and space is available, may be admitted 
with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher.

Transfer from IVIaryland Public Institutions 

Currently, applicants who have attended Maryland public Institutions may 
be admitted in accordance with the criteria outlined in the previous 
paragraph. The university subscribes to the policies set forth in the 
Maryland Higher Education Commission and Board of Regents transfer 
policies. When the number of students desiring admission exceeds the 
number that can be accommodated in a particular professional or 
specialized program, admission will be based on criteria developed by the 
university to select the best qualified students. 

Articulated transfer programs are available at each Maryland community 
college. An articulated transfer program is a list of courses that best 
prepare applicants for a particular course of study at the University of 
Maryland. Applicants who take appropriate courses specified in the 
articulated program and earn acceptable grades are guaranteed transfer 
with no loss of credit. Articulated transfer programs help students plan 
their new programs after changing career objectives. Computerized 
articulation information, called ARTSYS, is available at the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Maryland, in the transfer 
advisor's office at each of the community colleges, and at all other 
Maryland public institutions. Applicants can eliminate all doubt concerning 
transfer of courses by following articulated programs. 

General Transfer Information 

Admitted students will receive a preliminary review of transfer credit within 
two weeks after receiving the letter of admission. An official review of 
transfer credit occurs thereafter, with final determination of applicability 
made by an academic advisor/evaluator in the office of the appropriate 
dean for the major. Generally, college-level courses completed at regionally- 
accredited institutions will transfer provided that grades of at least "C" 
(2.0) are earned and the course is similar in content and scope to work 
offered at Maryland. The regional accrediting bodies are Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Schools, New England Association of Schools 
and Colleges, North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, 
Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools, and Western Association of Schools and Colleges. 
Up to 60 credits from a community or two-year college, and 90 credits from 
a four-year college, may be applied toward the degree. Students are 
required to complete at least their final 30 credits at Maryland to earn a 
Maryland degree. 

Transfer of course work completed at Maryland public colleges and 
universities is covered by the Maryland Higher Education Commission 
(MHEC) transfer policies (see complete text later in this section). Maryland 
will accept grades of "D" or better from appropriate course work completed 
at a regionally-accredited Maryland public institution, including other 
institutions in the University System of Maryland. 

The Transfer Credit Center provides articulation information and assistance 
to students and transfer advisors. The Center, a joint effort between the 
Offices of Undergraduate Admissions and the Office of the Registrar, has 
computerized and consolidated the transfer credit evaluation process. It 
provides incoming students from domestic institutions with information on 
acceptability of credits and transfer equivalencies, subject to adjustment by 
advisors within the student's individual program. Certain courses (e.g., 
those not appearing or not fully elaborated in the sending institution's 
current catalog) may require additional information such as syllabi, 
portfolios, etc., before evaluation. 

Information on transferability of specific courses to the University of Maryland, 
College Park may be accessed on the web at www.tce.umd.edu/TCE/. 

Each college-level course will be evaluated individually, with applicability 
toward major or general education requirements determined by the 
appropriate academic unit. The university does not transfer blocks of 
courses, such as those completed through the Associate's Degree. See 
the appropriate sections of the catalog for specific general education and 
major requirements. 



Credit will be posted to your Maryland record only from official transcripts 
sent from the institution at which the credit was completed. Students who 
have earned credit through Advanced Placement (AP), International 
Baccalaureate (IB), or College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject 
area exams must have scores sent directly from the testing board, even if 
they are already posted on a transcript from another institution.

regionally-accredited institution may be reviewed by the appropriate dean. 



10 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



statement on Transfer of Course Credit 

The University of Maryiand welcomes transfer students and has transfer 
agreements (sometimes referred to as "articulation" agreements) to 
encourage and aid students in their efforts to take appropriate courses prior 
to transfer. Each course is evaluated individually for students seeking to 
transfer to the University of Maryland. Credit is granted for courses that are 
applicable to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, and for which 
a grade of C or above was earned. Courses completed at Maryland public 
two- or four-year institutions may be transferred with grades of D or above 
provided that course content is appropriate to our academic programs. 

Maximum Number of Transfer Credits Accepted 

The University of Maryland has direct transfer agreements with all Maryland 
community colleges, as well as other junior and community colleges 
outside of the state. The university will accept for transfer a maximum of 
60 credits from a two-year program and 90 credits from a four-year program 
for courses in which a grade of C or above was earned and which are 
appropriate to an approved curriculum at this institution. See the above 
paragraph for required course grades. 

iVIaximum Number of Credits Aiiowed for Non-Traditionai Learning 

Students who have acquired college-level learning through work or other 
non-collegiate activities may wish to translate their experience into credits 
at Maryland by validation through the national CLEP examination (College- 
Level Examination Program) or credit-by-examination administered by 
academic departments. The university will accept a maximum of 30 hours 
of credit through examination. 

iVIinimum Number of Credits Required Througli Ciassroom Instruction in 
the iVIajor Field and for the Degree 

The University of Maryland requires a minimum of 120 semester hours of 
credit for an undergraduate degree; some programs require more. 
Regardless of the total number of transfer credits, students must complete 
at least their last 30 credits at the University of Maryland, College Park. 



The volume of requests for reclassification may necessitate a delay in 
completing the review process. It is hoped that a decision in each case will 
be made within 60 days of receipt of petition and all required necessary 
documentation. During this period of time, or any further period of time 
required by the university, any fees and charges based on the previous 
determination must be paid. The student is solely responsible for any late 
charges incurred by the residency process. If the determination is changed, 
any excess fees and charges will be refunded. 

Students classified as in-state for admission, tuition, and charge- 
differential purposes are responsible for notifying the Residency 
Classification Office in writing within 15 days of any change in their 
circumstances that might in any way affect their classification at the 
University of Maryland. 



READMISSION AND REINSTATEMENT 

students who are admitted and do not register for their first semester or 
cancel registration prior to beginning their first semester must apply again 
for admission (see Freshman or Transfer Admission). Students who are 
admitted as "Term Only" also must apply again for admission if they wish 
to register for a subsequent term. 

Students who have matriculated and registered and did not maintain that 
registration continuously (Fall and Spring semesters) to graduation, must 
apply for readmission or reinstatement to re-enroll at the University 
of Maryland. 

See Chapter 4, "Withdrawal and leave of absence from the University" for 
more detailed information. 

Readmission 

students must apply for readmission if they interrupt registration for one or 
more semesters and were not academically dismissed at the conclusion of 
the last semester of attendance. 



Statement on Transfer of General Education Requirements 

As directed by the Maryland Higher Education Commission Transfer Policy, 
transferable courses taken in fulfillment of general education requirements at 
a Maryland public institution will be applied toward Maryland's CORE 
requirements. Careful planning with an academic advisor will ensure that 
students take appropriate credit and maximize their credit transfer. The total 
number of general education credits for a Maryland public institution transfer 
or post baccalaureate credits will not exceed that required of native students.

Petitions, related documents, self-test checklist, deadline information, and 
questions concerning the residency policy of the University of Maryland for 
the determination of in-state status should be directed to the Residency 
Classification unit in the Office of the Registrar. 

Determination of in-State Status for Admission, Tuition, and Charge 
Differential Purposes: See Chapter 10, Appendix H In this catalog for the 
complete text of this policy. 

An initial determination of in-state status for undergraduates will be made by 
the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the time a student's application 
for admission is considered. The determination made at that time, and any 
determination made thereafter, shall prevail in each semester until the 
determination is successfully challenged. Students may challenge their 
classification by submitting a petition to the Residency Classification Office. 
Determinations are based on the residency policy and its requirements. The 
deadline for submitting a completed petition and meeting all nine criteria for 
the required 12 months is the first day of the semester in which the student 
wishes to be classified as an in-state student. 



Reinstatement 

students who are academically dismissed from the University must apply 
for reinstatement. All applications for reinstatement are reviewed by a 
Faculty Petition Board. Students may apply for reinstatement for the 
semester immediately following dismissal or for any subsequent semester. 
Only the Faculty Petition Board can grant reinstatement. 

Students who are denied reinstatement will be required to comply with 
specific recommendations made by the Faculty Petition Board in order to be 
considered for reinstatement in a future semester. 

Reinstatement After Withdrawal 

students who withdraw from the University must apply for reinstatement if 
they interrupt enrollment for one or more semesters. Students who were 
academically dismissed at the conclusion of the previous completed 
semester also must apply for reinstatement. (See Undergraduate Policy on 
Probation and Dismissal.) Students should contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admission for more information about readmission and 
reinstatement. 

Deadlines 

There are no deadlines for readmission. For full consideration, students 
applying for reinstatement must observe the following deadlines; 

Fall Semester — July 1 
Winter Term — November 1 
Spring Semester — December 1 
Summer Session I — May 1 
Summer Session II — June 1 

All students are encouraged to apply early in order to take advantage of 
early registration. 

Summer School 

students who are dismissed at the end of the Fall semester are not eligible 
to attend Summer sessions unless or until they are approved for 
reinstatement. Students dismissed at the end of a Spring semester may 
attend any Summer sessions prior to being reinstated. However, these 
students must be approved for reinstatement in order to attend during the 
subsequent Fall semester. 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 11 



Winter Term

prior to being reinstated. Winter Term is offered to students who have 
attended during the preceeding Fall semester. Students with a break in 
attendance must be reenrolled to be eligible to attend Winter Term. 
Students readmitted/reinstated for a Spring semester may also attend 
Winter Term.

Fees, Expenses, and 
Financial Aid 



FEES AND EXPENSES 

Financial Services Center 

1135 Lee Building, 301-314-9000 and 1-888-313-2404 
www.umd.edu/bursar 

Tuition and fees for the University of IVIaryland, College Park, are listed on 
the following page. The university requires that all deposits and fees be 
paid by stated deadlines, or penalties must be imposed. Many potential 
administrative difficulties can be avoided if students carefully follow 
published procedures and notify the appropriate office(s) of any changes 
that might affect their financial obligation to the university. This includes 
notilying the Bursar's Office of changes of address so that mail affecting 
the student's financial relationship with the university will not be delayed or 
returned. 

College Park sponsors a deferred-payment plan. Information regarding 
the Terp payment plan is available by calling 301-314-9000 or 
1-888-313-2404 or at www.umd.edu/bursar. 

All charges incurred during a semester are payable immediately. Returning 
students will not be permitted to complete registration until all financial 
obligations to the university, including library fines, parking violations, and 
other penalty fees and service charges, are paid in full. 

Payment for past due balances and current semester fees is due on or 
before the first day of classes. Students who register in advance must pay 
their bills in full prior to the general registration period. Students who 
register after the initial registration period are required to make full 
payment by due date indicated to avoid cancellation of their enrollment and 
loss of their classroom seats to other students. 

Although the university regularly bills students, it cannot assume 
responsibility for their receipt. Students are reminded that it is their 
responsibility to notify the university of any change in address or to correct 
an address. If a student bill is not received on or before the beginning of 
each semester, it is the student's responsibility to obtain a copy of the bill 
from the Financial Service Center, 1135 Lee Building. The Office is open 
Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

All checks or money orders should be made payable to the University of 
iVIaryiand for the exact amount due. Student's name and student's sociai 
security number siiouid be written on the front side of the check. 

University grants and scholarships will be posted to the student's account. 
However, the first bill mailed prior to the beginning of each semester may 
not include these deductions. 

Students are urged to check their residence hall and dining service 
agreements for procedures for cancellation of reservations and for 
deadlines for receiving refunds of deposits. Refunds cannot be made after 
these deadlines, even if the student decides not to attend the University of 
Maryland, College Park. 

Students will incur a late payment fee in the event of failure to pay a 
balance on their student account by its due date. A late payment fee of 
$10.00 or 5%, whichever is higher, will be assessed in addition to the total 
past due amount. An additional 1.5% finance charge will be charged 
monthly if the account is not settled. 

Students who fail to pay the indebtedness during the semester in which 
delinquency occurs will be ineligible to advance register for subsequent 
semesters until the debt and the penalty fees are cleared. 



In the event of actual registration for a subsequent semester by a 
delinquent student who has not settled his or her student account prior to 
that semester, such registration will be canceled and no credit will be 
earned for the semester. 

The state has established, under legislative mandate, a Central Collections 
Unit (CCU) within the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning. The 
university is required by state law to refer all delinquent accounts to the State 
Collections Unit. Please note that Maryland law allows the Central Collections 
Unit to intercept state income tax refunds for individuals with delinquent 
accounts, and that CCU is authorized to notify a National Credit Bureau of the 
delinquency at the time the account is referred to it for collection. 

Ail accounts due from students, faculty, staff, non-students, etc., are 
included within these guidelines. 

Central Collections Unit costs incurred in collecting delinquent accounts will 
be charged to the student. The minimum collection fee is 17% plus 
attorney and/or court costs. 

No degrees, diplomas, certificates, or transcripts of records will be issued 
to students who have not made satisfactory settlement of their accounts. 

Note: Additional Information on Student Financial Obligations, Disclosure of 
Information, Delinquent Accounts, and Special Fees, can be found in the 
"Policy Statements" section at the beginning of this catalog. 

Payment of Fees 

All checks, money orders, or postal notes should be made payable to the 
University of Maryland. The student's social security number must be

FINANCIAL AID 

Office of Student Financial Aid 

Student Financial Services Center 
1135 Lee Building, 301-314-9000 
E-mail: umfinaid@osfa.umd.edu 
www.financialaid.umd.edu 

The Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) administers all types of federal, 
state, and institutional financial assistance programs, and, in cooperation 
with other university offices, participates in the awarding of scholarships to 
deserving students. The primary responsibility for financing attendance at 
the University of Maryland, College Park, lies with students and families. 
Scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study positions are awarded on the 
basis of academic ability and/or financial need as determined by a federal 
needs-analysis system. It is the intent of OSFA to provide assistance to 
students who might not otherwise be able to pursue college studies due to 
financial constraints. 

Financial aid funds are limited; therefore, all new, readmitted, and returning 
students must follow these steps to receive priority consideration for 
financial aid: 

1. Submit admissions applications and all necessary supporting 
documents to the Office of Admission by the appropriate deadlines. 
(Deadlines are listed in chapter 1.) 

2. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after 
January 1. FAFSAs are available from OSFA online at 
www.financialaid.umd.edu. A new FAFSA is required for each 
academic year of the student's enrollment. 

New students should not wait to be admitted before filing the FAFSA. 

A financial aid application has no bearing on a student's admission 
application. However, students will not receive final consideration for aid 
until they are admitted to a degree program. 

3. IVIail the FAFSA to the Federal Processor no later than February 1, so 
that it is received by the processor by February 15. Applying online 
helps to expedite the process. Income for the previous year may be 
estimated initially and corrected later on the Student Aid Report. 

Applications received before February 15 will be given priority consideration. 



Note: 



First-semester freshmen who receive Title IV aid and who withdraw 
will receive a refund in accordance with federal regulations. 



Prior to the first day of classes, if full-time undergraduates drop a course 
or courses, thereby changing the total number of credits for which they are 
registered to 11 or fewer, charges for the semester will be assessed on the 
basis of the per-credit-hour fee for part-time students. However, if students 
later add a course or courses thereby changing the total number of credits 
for which they are registered to 12 or more, they will be billed for the 
difference between per-credit-hour fees paid and the general fees for full- 
time undergraduates. 

If during the first five days of classes full-time undergraduates drop a course 
or courses thereby changing the total number of credits for which they are 
registered to 11 or fewer, charges for the semester will be assessed on the 
basis of part-time charges plus 20% of the difference between the full-time 
fees and appropriate part-time charges. After the first five days of classes, 
there is no refund for changing from full-time to part-time status. 

Students who register as part-time undergraduate students and apply for a 
refund for courses dropped during the first week of classes will be given an 
80% refund. No refund will be made for courses dropped thereafter. 

No part of the charges for room and board is refundable except when 
students officially withdraw from the university or when they are given 
permission by the appropriate officials of the university to move from the 
residence halls and/or to discontinue dining hall privileges. In these cases, 
the room refund will be computed by multiplying the number of periods 
remaining by the pro rata weekly rate after adjusting for a service charge. 
Refunds to students having full board contracts will be calculated in a 
similar manner. No room and/or board refunds will be made after the 14th 
week of the semester. Students are reminded that reservations for room 
and board must be canceled by the date published in the residence hall 
and dining services agreement(s). 



General Regulations Applicable to All Forms of Aid 

Full-Time Status. For most types of aid, students must attempt at least 12 
credit hours through the schedule adjustment period each semester in 
order to receive the full financial aid award. Please refer to the standards of 
Satisfactory Academic Progress when considering dropping below 12 credit 
hours for any given semester. 

Citizenship Status. In order to be eligible for federal, state, or university 
financial assistance, students must be United States citizens or eligible 
non-citizens. 

Default/Owe Refund: Students cannot be in default on an educational 
loan, nor can they owe any refund on a Pell Grant or Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) previously awarded at any post- 
secondary institution. 

Degree-Seeking: Students must be working toward a degree or certificate. 
Students must be admitted to the university as "degree-seeking." 

Satisfactory Progress: Students must be making satisfactory progress 
toward a degree or certificate according to the Standards for Satisfactory 
Academic Progress published in the Schedule of Classes. 

Selective Service: To receive federal financial aid, male students must 
register with Selective Service if they are at least 18 years old and born 
after December 31, 1959, unless they are not required by law. The federal 
government will verity compliance of this registration requirement. 

Receiving a Non-University Award: If a student receives assistance 
(scholarship or loan) from a non-university source, the university may reduce 
the financial aid awarded by the university. It is the student's responsibility to 
notify the Office of Student Financial Aid of all outside awards. 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 15 



Change in Financial Situation: It is the student's responsibility to notify the 
Office of Student Financial Aid of any changes to his or her financial 
circumstances during the year. 

Reapplication Requirement: Need-based assistance is not automatically 
renewed from year to year. All students requesting need-based aid must 
reapply by submitting a new or renewal FAFSA annually. Such reappli- 
cation must indicate continued financial need as well as Satisfactory 
Academic Progress. 

Award Poiicy: Financial aid is normally a combination of grants, loans, and 
student employment. The financial aid "package" is determined by the 
availability of financial aid and the financial circumstances of each student. 
It is not necessary to make any special application for university grants. 
The Office of Student Financial Aid will determine awards that best fit the 
needs and qualifications of the candidates. 

Estimating Educational Cost 

A budget of average educational costs is used in determining the amount 
of aid that a student is awarded during the academic year. A typical budget 
for an undergraduate at the University of Maryland, College Park, is as 
follows: 

Dependent student iiving on campus/off campus* 
(not with parent/relative)

Scliolarsliips 

Several scholarships are available to the highest-achieving students at the 
University of Maryland, College Park. Two types of scholarships are 
available: those based solely on academic or creative talent (merit-based), 
and those based on financial need as well as academic or creative talent 
(need-based). The eligibility criteria for the different scholarships vary and 
are listed below. For more information on these programs, students are 
encouraged to contact the office or department responsible for selecting 
the recipients. Please see the list of departmental scholarships at the end 
of this chapter. Current information about scholarships is also available on 
the Web at www.uga.umd.edu. 

Banneker/Key Sclioiarsliip: The University of Maryland seeks to identify and 
select some of the brightest high school seniors in the nation to continue 
their education as Banneker/Key Scholars. Students selected for this 
prestigious award will receive full financial support for four years, which 
covers tuition, room, board, mandatory fees, and a book allowance. They will 
also be admitted to the University Honors Program and will be afforded many 
other opportunities for participation in intellectual enrichment programs. For 
full consideration, students must submit an admission application, 
application fee, official transcript, essay, recommendations, and official 
copies of SAT or ACT scores to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by 
December 1 for the following academic year. Selection is based upon 
academic achievement plus extracurricular activities, awards and honors, and 
an essay. Semifinalists are given a personal interview. Factors such as a 
candidate's involvement in community service, talents or skills, leadership, 
and character all play a part in the final awards. Contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions or see www.uga.umd.edu for more information. 

Regents Sclioiars Program: The Regents Scholars Program recognizes the 
extraordinary achievement of outstanding freshmen students. New awards 
are made each year in the amount of full in-state tuition, room, board, and 
mandatory fees. Recipients are automatically admitted to the University 
Honors Program. A select number of the top high school scholars in the 
state will be considered for this most prestigious award. A complete 



admission application, application fee, official transcript, essay, 
recommendations, and SAT or ACT scores must be submitted to the Office 
of Undergraduate Admissions by December 1 for consideration for the

sciiolarships which are awarded annually. Primary consideration will be

who have outstanding talent in art, dance, music, or theater. The

iVIaryland State Sclioiarsliips: The Maryland State Scholarship Administration 
(MSSA), located in Annapolis, awards both need- and merit-based 
scholarships to Maryland residents. There are currently 16 different programs 
available, including the Guaranteed Access Grant, Educational Assistance 
Grant, the Senatorial Scholarship, the House of Delegates Scholarship, and 
the Distinguished Scholar Award. You may obtain more information about 
these and other awards by calling MSSA at 800-974-1024. All Maryland 
residents are expected to apply for State Scholarship assistance. Initial 
application for many of the awards is made through the Free Application for 
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please note that filing the FAFSA is sufficient to 
apply for most Maryland State Scholarships at UMCP, although some may 
require additional application forms. The application deadline for most 
programs Is March 1. FAFSAs are available from the UMCP Office of Student 
Financial Aid or online at www.financiaiaid.umd.edu. 

Sciiolarsliips from Otiier States: Several states have reciprocal 
agreements with the State of Maryland. Students who are residents of 
these states may receive funds for study in eligible post-secondary 
institutions in Maryland. Interested students should contact their state 
scholarship agencies for information. 

Sciioiarsiiip Searclies: A broad range of scholarships are available from 
private sources. Usually, these awards are not as well publicized as the 
state and university programs. Therefore, students should conduct a 
scholarship search to locate such sources. The University of Maryland offers 
access to several services to students to aid them in their searches. Access 
our Web site at www.financiaiaid.umd.edu to use these services. 



NEED-BASED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

Grants 

The Office of Student Financial Aid administers several grant programs for 
undergraduates. Awards are made based on financial need as determined 
by the FAFSA. Grants do not have to be repaid. Access our web site at 
www.financialaid.umd.edu for more information. 

Federai Peii Grant: This grant provides a "foundation" of financial aid, to 
which aid from other sources may be added. Only undergraduates who are 
seeking their first bachelor's degree and have exceptional need may 
receive a Federal Pell Grant. All undergraduates will be considered for this 
grant regardless of when their applications were received. Students may 
receive the Federal Pell Grant for less than full-time attendance, although 
the award will be pro-rated based on the number of credits attempted. 
Awards range from $400 to $4,050. 

Federai Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG): The FSEOG 
is awarded to full-time undergraduates with exceptional need. Priority is 
given to Federal Pell Grant recipients. To be considered for FSEOG, 
students must meet OSFA's priority application deadline of February 15. 
The minimum award is $200. The maximum award is dependent upon 
government funding. The funds are divided among as many deserving 
students as possible. 

Institutional Grants: The university awards grants to full-time students who 
demonstrate financial need and meet OSFA's priority application deadline 
of February 15. There are three funds from which institutional grants are 
awarded, the UIVI Schoiarsiilp, Frederick Douglass Grant and the UM 

Grant. OSFA selects the recipients of these awards based on availability of 
funds and the qualifications of the applicants. The UM Scholarship may be 
awarded to undergraduates with demonstrated need and high academic 
achievement. The UM Grant and Frederick Douglas Grant may be awarded 
to any undergraduate with demonstrated need. Award amounts for these 
programs range from $200 to $2,900. 



Self-Help 

Financial aid also consists of self-help assistance such as employment and 
student loan programs. Most of these programs are awarded based on 
need as determined by the FAFSA. Access our web site at 
www.financialaid.umd.edu for additional information. 

Federal Work-Study: The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program provides 
students with the opportunity to earn money to meet their educational and 
personal expenses. Money earned from the FWS program does not have to 
be paid back. To be considered for FWS, students must meet OSFA's 
priority application deadline of February 15. This award is need-based and 
may range from $800 to $2,500. Pay rates depend on the level of 
complexity of the work, but will be at least the federal minimum wage. Like 
all university employees, FWS employees receive a paycheck every other 
week for the hours worked. Most FWS jobs are on campus, though 
opportunities exist through the Community Service Program for FWS 
students to work off campus at several Federal Government Agencies. The 
number of hours students may work is limited to 20 per week while school 
is in session and 40 per week during vacations and summer break. 

Paid Internsliips: Students with paid internships sign a contract at the 
beginning of the semester that states the payment amount for the number 
of hours to be worked during that semester. The payment amount is 
advanced to the student's account at the start of each semester. This 
program differs from Federal Work-Study in that students receive all 
"wages" at the start of each semester, as opposed to a bi-weekly pay 
check, and those funds are applied directly to the student's account. 
Several offices and departments on campus, including Shuttle UM, 
Residential Facilities, and Dining Services, offer paid internships. Students 
should contact the department or office for which they are interested 
in working. 

Federal Perkins Loan: The Perkins loan is a low-interest rate (5%) loan for 
students with exceptional financial need. This is a loan borrowed from the 
school, and must be repaid. To be eligible, students must meet OSFA's 
priority application deadline of February 15. The amount of the award will 
depend upon the student's need and may range from $200 to $1,800. 
New borrowers (those who first receive a Federal Perkins Loan after July 1, 
1988) have a grace period of nine months after graduating or leaving 
school before they must begin repayment of their Federal Perkins 
Loan(s). Interest will begin accruing at the time of repayment. This loan is 
interest-free while students are attending school and enrolled at least half 
time in a degree-seeking program. 

Federal Stafford Loan: This is a low -interest-rate loan for students who 
attend at least half-time. Application is made through the school's financial 
aid office via the FAFSA. Eligibility for this loan is based on need, not credit 
worthiness. This loan is borrowed by the student and must be repaid. 

There are two types of Federal Stafford Loans, subsidized and 
unsubsidized. The subsidized Stafford loan is awarded to students with 
demonstrated financial need; this loan is interest-free while students are 
attending school and enrolled at least half-time in a degree-seeking 
program. Students who do not demonstrate financial need, or who do not 
demonstrate sufficient need to borrow a fully subsidized Stafford loan, may 
borrow a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. The unsubsidized loan is 
interest bearing. Students borrowing an unsubsidized Stafford loan will be 
required to repay the principle and any interest that may accrue during 
school attendance. All students who wish to apply for either Federal 
Stafford Loan must complete the FAFSA. The interest rate for new 
borrowers securing their first Federal Stafford Loan on or after July 1, 1994 
is variable, but capped at 8.25%. The interest rate through June 30, 2006 
is 4.70%. Students who graduate or drop below half-time status are 
granted a six-month grace period before repayment of the Stafford loan 
is required. 

The following are the maximum loan amounts per academic year: $2,625 
for undergraduates with freshman status, $3,500 for undergraduates 
attaining sophomore status, and $5,500 for undergraduate students who 
attain junior or senior status. If students do not demonstrate sufficient 
need to borrow the maximum subsidized Federal Stafford Loan, they may 
borrow the difference in a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. The 
maximum borrowing limit for most undergraduates is $23,000. 

Federal PLUS (Parent Loans For Undergraduate Students): This is a 
non-need-based loan, which parents may borrow to help defray the cost of 
their dependent children's education. The Federal PLUS enables parents 
to borrow the full yearly cost of attendance (as determined by the school) 
minus all other financial aid. Otherwise, there is no yearly or cumulative 
borrowing limit. Because this loan is not need-based, submission of the 
FAFSA is not required to apply. However, borrowers must first submit the 
PLUS loan application to the school for calculation and certification of the 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 17 



maximum loan amount that the parent may borrow per student per year. 
The Federal PLUS is granted to borrowers based on credit-worthiness as 
determined by the lender whom the borrower selects. The interest rate for 
the Federal PLUS is variable, but capped at 9%. The rate is recalculated on 
July 1 of each year and is equivalent to 52-week Treasury Bill on June 1, 
plus 3.1%. Repayment of the PLUS begins immediately. 



COLLEGE AND DEPARTMENTAL 
SCHOLARSHIPS 

Some UM colleges and departments offer merit-based scholarships. Most 
departments will only consider students who enroll for 12 credits 
per semester, and who have a grade point average of at least 3.0. 
Some of these scholarships are open to prospective freshman and 
transfer students. Some of them are only open to continuing UM 
students. For additional Information regarding departmental scholarships

Office of Human Relations Programs 

1130 Shriver Laboratory, East Wing 

301-405-2838 

I www.umd.edu/OHRP | 

The Office of Human Relations Programs (OHRP) advises and assists the 
President in the promotion of the university mission as it relates to 
multiculturalism, broadly conceptualized (i.e., race (inclusive of color and 
creed); ethnicity; language; national or geographic origin; socioeconomic class 
(inclusive of educational level, employment status, and familial configuration); 
sex and gender; gender identity and expression; sexual orientation; physical, 
developmental, and psychological ability; religious, spiritual, faith-based, or 
secular affiliation; age and generation; physical appearance, environmental 
concern; and, on the basis of the exercise of rights secured by the First 
Amendment). More specifically, we facilitate partnership building between 
various constituencies of students, faculty, and staff on these issues as they 
impact schooling and are oriented toward the realization of an inclusive and 
therefore affirming environment for every citizen of the university community. 

The Office of Human Relations Programs (OHRP) is responsible for initiating 
action in compliance with institutional, state, and federal directives to 
provide equal education and employment opportunities for university 
students, faculty, and staff members. We also monitor the outcomes of 
actions taken in this regard, reporting our findings to the President, the 
Campus Senate, and to the campus community at large. We provide 
students, faculty, and staff with general information on equity efforts and 
on the status of equity and compliance matters at the university. Students, 
faculty, or staff having a concern about possible inequities in educational 
or employment matters, or who wish to register a complaint, may contact 
either the Campus Compliance Officer at 301-405-2839, or a member of 
the Campus' Equity Council (see Equity Council below). 

The Office of Human Relations Programs (OHRP) sponsors initiatives that 
promote intergroup relationship building, sexual harassment and hate 
crimes prevention, multicultural organizational development, and processes 
complaints of discrimination following procedures set forth in the 
University's Human Relations Code (the complete text of this Code may be 
found in chapter 10). 

The efforts of the OHRP are directed toward the development of our 
students, faculty, and staff becoming principled leaders, predisposed to 
progressive action; becoming democratic citizens as outstanding in what 
they do as in who they are with respect to their commitment to furthering 
the tenets of equity and justice for all. 

Equity Council 

1119 Main Administration Building 
301-405-5793 

The Equity Council serves as an advisory group to the President and 
supports the longstanding and continuous goal of the University of 
Maryland to be a national leader in recruiting and retaining a diverse 
community of faculty, staff and students. 

The Council provides leadership in the articulation and development of 
affirmative action policies and procedures for the campus community. A 
particular focus of the Equity Council is to review and recommend, as 
appropriate, search and selection policies and procedures for the university 
and its colleges and departments.

Academic Advising 

Academic advising is an essential part of an undergraduate's educational 
experience. Students can expect advising to help them: 

• better understand their purposes for attending the university; 

• develop insights about personal behaviors that promote improved 
adjustment to the campus setting; 

• increase their awareness of academic programs and course offerings at 
the University of Maryland; 

• explore opportunities both inside and outside the classroom for 
intellectual and cultural development; 

• acquire decision-making skills that can accelerate academic and 
career planning; 

• realistically evaluate their academic progress and its relationships to 
successful planning; and 

• understand the relationship between academic success and 
planning skills. 

Required Advising: Students enrolled in certain majors are required to see 
advisors before each registration. Even when advising is not mandatory, the 
university expects students in the following categories to consult their 
advisors. 

• Students in their first year of registration at the University of Maryland 

• Students with more than 60 credits who have not chosen a major 

• Students receiving an academic probation (mandatory) 

• Students dismissed from the university (mandatory) 

• Students who withdraw from the university (mandatory) 

• Students nearing graduation 

• Students with 70-80 credits; senior audit 

• Student athletes 

Finding An Advisor: Undergraduate students are encouraged to use the 
many advising opportunities available to them. At both college and 
department levels, at least one person has been designated to coordinate 
advising. A list of these persons, including name, room number, and 
telephone extension, is published each semester in the Schedule of Classes.

International students and faculty receive a wide variety of services 
designed to help them benefit from their experience in the United States. 
International Education Services (lES) works closely with the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions, evaluating academic records from overseas 
and processing applications for English proficiency, visa, and financial 
requirements. lES sponsors orientation programs, immigration and 
employment seminars, and coordinates activities for the International 
House. lES advisors counsel international students concerning immigration 
and personal issues. 

F-1 and J-1 status students. Students with F-1 or J-1 status are 
responsible for following the regulations of the U.S. Immigration and 
Naturalization Service pertaining to their visa status. The regulations affect 
extension of stay, transfers, off-campus employment authorization, 
practical training, and course loads. The Office of International Education 
Services is the only office on campus authorized to sign documents which 
must be forwarded to the Immigration and Naturalization Service. 

iVIaintaining Status 

• Full-time registration: In order to maintain full-time student status for 
immigration purposes, F-1 and J-1 undergraduate students are

hours per semester. Pre-approval from lES is required if you are going 
to complete the semester with fewer than 12 credits. 

• Documents: International students must have a valid passport at all 
times unless exempt from passport requirements. If your 1-20 or 
DS-2109 will soon expire you should apply for an extension at least 
30 days prior to the program completion date on the document. To 
travel outside the U.S. and re-enter as an F-1 or J-1, an advisor in lES 
must sign your 1-20 or DS-2109 before you leave. 

• Health Insurance: F-1 and J-1 students are required to carry adequate 
health insurance while attending the university. There are federal 
health insurance requirements for J-1 students and their dependents. 
Students must either purchase the health insurance plan available in 
the Office of International Education Services or show proof of 
coverage that meets USIA guidelines. Visit the Health Center for 
assistance with insurance.

?11« Mitchell Riiilding, 3ni-314 S?n4 



www.studentconduct.umd.edu 



It is the mission of the Office of Student Conduct to resolve allegations of 
misconduct under the Code of Student Conduct and Code of Academic 
Integrity in a manner consistent with the core values of fairness, honesty 
and integrity while promoting the University's educational mission. 
Essential to this mission is to enhance the development of character, 
civility, citizenship, individual/community responsibility, and ethics. 
University students play a significant role in considering the behavior of 
their peers and are asked to assume positions of responsibility as 
members of the university's student judiciary. The following tenets guide 
this mission: 

• To regard each student as an individual, deserving individual 
attention, consideration, and respect. 

• To consider the facts fully and carefully before resolving any case. 

• To speak candidly and honestly with each student. 

• To hold each student to a high standard of behavior, both to protect 
the campus community, and to promote student ethical development. 

• To recognize the reality of human fallibility, as well as the stresses 
associated with collegiate life, and to demonstrate compassion, 
understanding, and a sense of humor. 

• To contribute to the educational mission of the University by 
designing policies, conducting programs, and offering instruction that 
contribute to the intellectual and ethical development of the entire 
student body. 

General Statement of Student Responsibility. Students are expected to 
conduct themselves at all times in a manner consistent with the University 
responsibility of ensuring to all members of the campus community the 
opportunity to pursue their educational objectives, and of protecting the 
safety, welfare, rights, and property of all members of the University. 
Specific expectations for student conduct are outlined in the Code of 
Student Conduct, Appendix C, and the Code of Academic Integrity, 
Appendix 0. 

Disciplinary Procedures. Students accused of violating University 
regulations are accorded fundamental due process in disciplinary 
proceedings. Formal rules of evidence, however, shall not be applicable, 
nor shall deviations from prescribed procedures necessarily invalidate a 
decision or proceeding unless significant prejudice to one of the parties 
may result. University procedures are outlined in the Code of Student 
Conduct and Code of Academic Integrity supplemented by materials 
provided by the Office of Student Conduct to assist students who are 
facing accusations of misconduct.

Parking 

The Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) is responsible for 
managing and maintaining more than 16,000 parking spaces on the 
University of Maryland campus. All students who plan to park a licensed 
motor vehicle in one of these spaces must either register for a parking 
permit at the DOTS office, park at paid meters or in a cashier-attended lot. 
Piease note: Due to construction projects on campus the number of parking 
spaces could be dramatically reduced. Campus residential freshmen and 
resident sophomores are eligible to register for a parking permit. 

Because the University of Maryland has limited parking spaces, parking 
regulations are strictly enforced. Illegally parked vehicles, as well as those 
vehicles not displaying a campus parking permit in areas requiring permits 
will be ticketed, and students with outstanding parking fines may be barred 
from registration. 

Visit the DOTS Web site for complete procedures and parking regulations, 
disabled parking Information, visitor parking areas, alternative 
transportation information, parking registration rates, motor vehicle 
assistance program Information, schedule of fines, and other Information 
is available.

available at the Stamp Student Union Information Desk, the Department of 
Transportation Services, Shuttle-UM in lot 4e, and on the DOTS Web site 
at www.transportation.umd.edu. 

Carpooling 

Commuter students who are able to form a carpool with up to 3 other 
students can register for the Smart Park carpool program, which rewards 
carpoolers by usually offering access to move convenient parking lots as 
well as crediting back a portion of their permit fees.To register, and to 
access the Smart Park database, visit the Department of Transportation 
Services Web site at www.transportation.umd.edu. 

Park and Rides (Burtonsville and Laurel) 

The Department of Transportation Services is offering free weekday 
transportation to faculty, staff, and commuter students in the form of park 
& rides. This service runs from the park & ride lots to the College Park 
campus. The Laurel Park & Ride lot is located on the northbound side of 
Route 197 (Laurel-Bowie Road) approximately 1/8 mile north of the

CHAPTER 4 



Registration, Academic 
Requirements, and Regulations 



University of iVIaryiand Student Academic Success-Degree Compietion Poiicy 

University of iVIaryiand poiicy stipulates tiiat full-time degree seeking students are expected to complete their undergraduate degree program in four 
years. To meet this expectation, students must plan carefully in consultation with an academic advisor; complete 30 credits each year (which is usually 
accomplished through a course load of 14 to 16 credits per semester); satisfy general education, prerequisite and other course requirements with 
acceptable grades in a timely manner; and meet the benchmarks. Academic units provide the benchmarks and sample templates of multi-semester plans 
leading to four-year graduation. Students are required to map out individualized four-year plans, consistent with these guidelines and benchmarks, and are 
responsible for updating them as circumstances change. Students who do not meet benchmarks are required to select a more suitable major. Students 
who change majors must submit a realistic graduation plan to the academic unit of the new major for approval. Any student who completes ten semesters 
or 130 credits without completing a degree is subject to mandatory advising prior to registration for any subsequent semester. Students with exceptional 
circumstances or those who are enrolled in special programs are required to develop a modified graduation plan that is appropriate to their situations. In 
all cases, students are responsible for meeting progress expectations and benchmarks required for their degree programs. 

Every student should contact his or her college or department advisor to obtain the relevant materials for developing a four-year graduation plan and 
required benchmarks.

REGISTRATION 

Office of the Registrar 

MitnhPlI Riiilriing 3ni-31A-«9An 

www.testudo.umd.edu 



To attend classes at the University of Maryland, College Park, it is 
necessary to process an official registration. Specific registration dates and 
instructions are printed in the Schedule of Classes and on the Testudo web 
site. The Schedule of Classes is issued for the spring, fall and summer 
sessions. Winterterm information is printed in the Fall Schedule of Classes, 
and on the Testudo web site. 

Newly admitted students are invited, and strongly encouraged to attend an 
orientation session (see chapter 3 for Orientation information). Advising 
and course registration are part of the orientation process. All newly 
admitted students must meet with an advisor prior to registration. 
Additionally, newly admitted freshmen and transfer students are required to 
provide proof of immunization for measles, rubella, mumps and 
tetanus/diphtheria. Additionally, Maryland law requires resident hall 
students to either provide proof of vaccination against meningococcal 
disease or seek an exemption from this requirement. 

Registration Process: Currently enrolled students are invited to early 
registration by appointment. Registration appointments for the fall semester 
begin in April, and appointments for the spring semester begin in late 
October. Registration can be processed on the Testudo web site or in person. 
Open registration follows early registration, and continues up to the first day 
of classes. During this time students may make schedule adjustments or 
process an original registration. The schedule adjustment period begins on 
the first day of classes. All registration transactions, either on-line or in 
person, are final unless a student processes a cancellation of registration. 

Cancellation of Registration: Students who register and later decide not to 
attend the University must cancel their registration with the Office of the 
Registrar prior to the official first day of classes. Failure to cancel registration 
will result in a financial obligation to the University of Maryland even though a 
student does not attend class. The University reserves the right to cancel 
registration for students who fail to meet their financial obligations. 

Scliedule Adjustment: The schedule adjustment period is the first 10 days 
of classes for the fall and spring semesters, the first 5 days of classes for 
Summer Sessions I and II, and the first 3 days of classes for Winterterm 
and 3-week accelerated Summer courses. Courses may be added, when 
space is available, during the schedule adjustment period, and will appear 



on the student's permanent record along with other courses previously 
listed. Courses dropped during this period will not appear on the student's 
permanent record. 

Departments may identify courses or sections of courses (with the approval 
of the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs), which after 
the first five days of the schedule adjustment period in Spring and 
Fall semesters, shall require faculty or departmental approval for students 
to add. 

• During the schedule adjustment period full-time undergraduates may 
drop or add courses, or change sections or credit level without financial 
penalty provided they remain full-time students (registered for 12 or 
more credits). Consult the Schedule of Classes for information and 
penalties associated with changing from full-time to part-time. 

• Part-time undergraduates (fewer than 12 credits) may also add, 
drop and change sections, as well as change credit level, but they 
should consult the deadline section in the Schedule of Classes to 
avoid incurring additional charges. 

• Grading Method (including pass-fail) may be changed only during the 
schedule adjustment period. 

• In the case of students who are advised in the Division of Letters 
and Sciences when Dean's approval is required, the Dean for Office 
of Undergraduate Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally 
delegated to the Dean. 

After Schedule Adjustment 

• Courses may not be added without special permission of the 
department and the dean of the academic unit in which the student 
is enrolled. 

• All courses for which the student is enrolled shall remain as a part of 
the student's permanent record. The student's status shall be 
considered full-time if the number of credit hours enrolled at this 
time is 12 or more. 



Classification of Students 

Official classifications of undergraduate students are based on earned 
credits as follows; freshman, 1-29 semester hours; sophomore, 30-59; 
junior, 60-89; and senior, 90 to at least 120. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 31 



• An official class list for each course being offered is issued to the 
appropriate department by the Office of the Registrar. Electronic 
rosters are provided to all faculty with email accounts. Students are 
not permitted to attend a class if their names do not appear on the 
class list. Instructors must report discrepancies to the Office of the 
Registrar. 

Drop Period 

The drop period for undergraduate students will begin at the close of the 
schedule adjustment period and terminate at the end of the tenth week of 
classes for the fall and spring semesters, and at a comparable time for 
summer sessions and Winterterm. Consult the Schedule of Classes for dates. 

During this period a student may drop a maximum of four credits. However, 
if the course carries more than four credits, the student may drop the entire 
course, or in the case of a variable credit course, reduce the credit level by 
up to four credits. Drops during this period will be recorded on the student's 
permanent record with a notation of "W" and will be considered to represent 
a single enrollment (one of two possible) in the course. This mark will not be 
used in the computation of a student's cumulative grade point average. 

Withdrawal and Leave of Absence from 
the University 

students admitted to the University of Maryland are expected to make regular 
and consistent progress towards the completion of their degree. However, 
the University understands that in exceptional circumstances 
a student may find it necessary to completely withdraw from all classes. The 
University considers such an interruption to be very serious as it delays 
normal progress towards the degree. Students should not withdraw 
for frivolous reasons or to avoid the consequences of ignoring their academic 
responsibilities. Any student considering withdrawal is strongly encouraged to 
meet with his or her academic college advisor before leaving the University. 

Potential Implications: Withdrawing or taking a leave of absence from the 
University may have serious implications for international students, 
students receiving financial aid or students residing in on-campus housing. 
Students are advised to contact the appropriate offices before finalizing 
withdrawal or leave of absence plans.

Witlidrawal: A withdrawal is available anytime between the first and last 
day of classes. Students must submit written notice of withdrawal to the 
Office of the Registrar no later than the last day of classes. A student's 
return to the University is contingent upon the conditions outlined in 
"Return to the University" below. 

Leave of Absence: A leave of absence is a type of withdrawal and is available 
for students wishing to take time away from the University with the intention of 
returning the following semester. The leave of absence status is especially 
helpful for recipients of federal financial aid because they are not considered 
to be withdrawn provided they do return and complete the following semester. 
Students may apply for a leave of absence only during the last 60 days of the 
semester. A student's return to the University is contingent upon the 
conditions outlined in "Return to the University" below. 

Return to tlie University: Normally, a student may withdraw or take a leave 
of absence from the University only once during matriculation as an 
undergraduate. Students who find it necessary to leave the University are 
required to petition the Faculty Review Board in order to return. Students 
who have earned a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA, with no previous 
withdrawal or leave of absence, are exempt from this requirement. 
Students who withdraw or take a leave of absence while on academic 
probation, or those returning from dismissal, are always required to petition 
the Faculty Review Board. Students are also required to complete a 
Reinstatement Advising Meeting with their academic college advising office 
before the petition will be considered by the Faculty Review Board. 

Additional Withdrawal/Leave of Absence Information: 

• The effective date of withdrawal or leave of absence for the 
purposes of refunds is the date that the notice is received by the 
Office of the Registrar. Notation of withdrawal/leave of absence and 
the effective date will be posted to the student's academic record. 
Instructors and college offices will be notified of all withdrawn 
students. The deadline date for submitting the withdrawal for each 
semester is the last day of classes. Students should contact the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions for reenrollment information. 



• The repeat policy will not apply to courses taken during the academic 
semester from which the student is officially withdrawn. 

Military Call-ups: It is the intent of the University of Maryland, College Park, 
to facilitate the withdrawal or change in registration and the reenrollment of 
students who are called to active military duty during the semester. The 
student (or a representative) should take a copy of the military orders to 
the Office of the Registrar and process "withdrawal" or "change in 
registration" papers. Detailed information about this process may be 
obtained from the Office of the Registrar. Withdrawal for active military 
service will have no effect on any subsequent request to withdraw from 
the University. 

General Education Requirements 

See chapter 5. 

Enrollment in Majors 

A student who is eligible to remain at the University of Maryland, College 
Park, may transfer among curricula, colleges, or other academic units 
except where limitations on enrollments have been approved. By the time 
they complete 60 credits, students are expected to declare a degree- 
granting major. Students must be enrolled in the major program from which 
they plan to graduate, when registering for the final 15 hours of the 
baccalaureate program. This requirement also applies to the third year of 
the combined, pre-professional degree programs. See pg. 43 for 
information on double majors and double degrees. 

Credit Hours and Maximum Credits 
Each Semester 

No baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120 semester hours. The 
semester hour, which is the unit of credit, is the equivalent of a subject 
pursued one period a week for one semester. Two or three hours of 
laboratory or field work are equivalent to one lecture or recitation period. 

In order for undergraduate students to complete most curricula in four 
academic years, their semester load must range from 12 to 19 hours (30 
to 36 hours each year) toward the degree. By policy, undergraduates may 
not exceed the following maximum credit loads without the prior approval of 
their Dean: 20 credits in a 15 week semester; 8 credits in a 6 week 
summer term, or 4 credits in an accelerated 3 week term. 

Concurrent Undergraduate- 
Graduate Registration 

An undergraduate degree seeking student at the University of Maryland 
may, with the approval of his or her Dean, of the department and the 
instructor offering the course, and of the Graduate School, register for 
graduate courses (600 level and above) that will be recorded as "for 
graduate credit only" and that may be applied towards an advanced degree 
at this university or elsewhere. Students eligible for this option normally will 
have achieved Junior standing, will have a GPA of at least 3.0, and will 
have successfully completed the prerequisite courses with a grade of "B" 
or better. The student must submit a plan of study that shows that taking 
graduate courses will not unduly delay completion of requirements for the 
bachelor's degree. The total of graduate and undergraduate credits 
attempted in any semester may not be more than eighteen. The graduate 
credits so earned will not count towards any of the requirements for the 
Baccalaureate degree. A maximum of twelve credits may be taken for 
graduate credit by a student while enrolled as an undergraduate. 

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate 
Level Courses 

Subject to requirements determined by the graduate faculty of the 
department or program offering the course, undergraduate degree-seeking 
students may register for graduate-level courses, i.e., those numbered from 
600 to 898, with the exception of 799, for undergraduate credit. The 
student must obtain the prior approval of the department and instructor 
offering the course. 

Students eligible for this option normally will have achieved Junior standing, 
will have a GPA of at least 3.0, and will have successfully completed the 
prerequisite courses with a grade of "B" or better. 



32 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



Enrollment in a graduate-level course does not in any way imply subsequent 
departmental or graduate school approval for admission into a graduate 
program, nor may the course be used as credit for a graduate degree at the 
University of Maryland. 

Combined Bachelor's/IVIaster's Programs 

In a combined bachelor's/master's program, some graduate level courses 
initially taken for undergraduate credit may also be applied towards the 
graduate credit requirements for a master's degree program at the 
University of Maryland. A bachelor's/master's program may be developed 
for an individual student, or it may be a structured program. 

A. Individual Student Bachelor's/Master's Program: A program may be 
developed by an individual student in consultation with his/her 
academic advisor. Such a program is available only to students whose 
academic performance is exceptional. It is to be developed according 
to the individual career interests and goals of the student and should 
be an integrated learning experience rather than merely the completion 
of a certain number of graduate and undergraduate credits. The 
program requires the approval of the directors of both the 
undergraduate and the graduate programs involved and of the Dean for 
Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Dean of the Graduate School. 
Normally no more than nine credits of graduate courses applied to the 
bachelor's degree may be counted also for graduate credit in an 
individual student program. Courses to be double-counted must be at 
the 600 level or above and must be passed with at least a "B" grade. 
Individual study courses, internships, or courses given credit by 
examination are not eligible. The credits to be double-counted will be 
designated as applicable to the graduate program after the student 
receives the bachelor's degree and matriculates in the Graduate 
School. This designation will be canceled if the student withdraws from 
the graduate program before completing the master's degree. 

B. Structured Bachelor's/Master's Program: A structured bachelor's/ 
master's program is an articulated curriculum combining an existing 
undergraduate program and an existing master's program at the 
University of Maryland, offered by the same or by different departments. 
Such a program is to be designed for students whose academic 
performance is exceptional and should be an integrated learning 
experience rather than merely the completion of a certain number of 
graduate and undergraduate credits. A proposal for such a program 
should be submitted by the college(s) housing the academic programs 
concerned and requires the approval of the Graduate Council, the 
Graduate Dean, the Senate PCC Committee, and the Provost. 

Necessary features of a structured bachelor's/master's program 
include the following: 

a. There must be specific requirements for admission to the combined 
program that speak to the exceptional performance of the students 
to be admitted. At a minimum, students accepted for the program 
must be clearly admissible to the graduate program portion. 

b. The program should be designed so as not to unduly delay the 
students' receipt of their bachelor's degrees. Taking graduate 
credits should not unduly limit the breadth of the student's 
experience through premature specialization. 

c. All requirements of the bachelor's program and of the master's 
program must be completed to receive the two degrees. Where 
appropriate, graduate courses taken while an undergraduate 
may substitute for courses required in the undergraduate major 
program. 

d. The students may be offered deferred admission to the graduate 
school at the end of the Junior year program, subject to 
completion of the senior year program in a timely fashion and with 
a specified level of achievement. Formal admission to the 
graduate school will require completion of all requirements for the 
bachelor's degree. 

e. The credits to be double-counted will be designated as applicable 
to the graduate program after the student receives the bachelor's 
degree and matriculates in the Graduate School. This designation 
will be canceled if the student withdraws from the graduate 
program before completing the master's degree. 

A structured bachelor's/master's program may normally include up to 
nine credits of graduate level courses (600 level and above) that are 
counted both for the bachelor's program and the master's program. 
More than nine double-counted credits may be allowed if both of the 
following conditions are satisfied. 



a. The additional graduate credits applied to the undergraduate 
program do not unduly limit the breadth of the student's 
experience through premature specialization. This condition may 
be satisfied, for example, if the graduate credits substitute for 
courses required in the undergraduate program that would have 
been taken in any case, but at a less advanced level. 

b. The master's program requires substantially more than thirty 
credits. This condition will be deemed to be satisfied if the 
combined program, with double-counting, still requires 150 or 
more credit hours to complete. 

Courses Taken at Other Institutions 

Courses taken at another institution may not be credited toward a degree 
program without prior approval of the dean of the college from which the 
student expects to earn a degree. Eligible students may enroll in courses at 
other Universities via the University System of Maryland's Inter Institutional 
Registration Program or the Consortium of Universities of the Washington 
Metropolitan Area. 

Consortium of Universities of tlie Wasliington IVIetropolitan 

Area: 

The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area 
consists of American University, The Catholic University of America, 
Gallaudet University, George Mason University, The George Washington 
University, Howard University, Joint Military Intelligence College, Marymount 
University, National Defense University, Southeastern University, Trinity 
University, University of the District of Columbia and the University of 
Maryland. Students enrolled in these institutions are able to attend certain 
classes at the other campuses and have the credit considered as resident 
credit at their home institutions. Comparable courses offered at University 
of Maryland may not be taken through the Consortium. The intention is to 
allow students to take an occasional course to augment a program rather 
than to develop an individual program. Payment of tuition for courses will 
be made to the student's home campus however special fees may be 
assessed by the host institution. 

Currently registered, degree seeking University of Maryland students with at 
least junior standing may participate in the Consortium program according 
to the stipulations listed in the current edition of the Schedule of Classes. 
Enrollment in courses is available only on a space-available basis. Visiting 
students are expected to meet prerequisites or other criteria set by the 
host institution and comply with the host institution's registration 
procedures and deadlines. 

Golden ID students are not eligible to enroll in courses through the 
Consortium with waiver of fees. University of Maryland students may only 
enroll in courses offered on the campus of the host institution. Students 
interested in additional information about the Consortium program should 
review the current edition of the Schedule of Classes or contact the 
Consortium Coordinator on the first floor of the Mitchell Building. 

University System of IVIaryland Inter-Institutional 

Registration Program: 

Undergraduate students have the opportunity to take courses at other 
University System of Maryland Institutions to augment their degree program 
at University of Maryland College Park under the Inter-Institutional 
Registration Program. Currently registered, degree seeking University of 
Maryland students with at least sophomore standing may enroll in courses 
and have that credit considered as resident credit at their home institution. 
Enrollment in courses is available only on a space available basis and 
visiting students are expected to meet prerequisites or other criteria set by 
the host institution. University of Maryland College Park students may not 
enroll in courses at the University of Maryland University College through 
this program. Payment of tuition for courses will be made to the student's 
home campus however special fees may be assessed by the host 
institution. Students interested in additional information about the Inter- 
Institutional Registration program should review the current edition of the 
schedule of classes or contact the Consortium Coordinator on the first floor 
of the Mitchell Building. 

Veterans Benefits 

students attending the university under the Veterans Education Assistance 
Act (Title 38, U.S. Code) may receive assistance and enrollment 
certification at the Veterans Certification Office, in the Office of the 
Registrar, first floor, Mitchell Building. Consult the Schedule of Classes for 
further information. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 33 



Student ID Numbers 

The University of Maryland assigns all students a unique nine-digit 
identification number called the U ID Number. This number is used as a 
student identifier for most university transactions. Students are also 
required to provide their Social Security Number, which is used for a limited 
number of purposes that are required by law or business necessity. A list of 
currently approved uses is provided in Chapter 10, Appendix M. 

Identification Card 

The photo ID card is issued at the time the student first registers for 
classes. This card is to be used for the entire duration of enrollment. 
Additionally, students who have food service contracts will use this photo 
identification card. Contact Dining Services (information in chapter 3) 
directly for further information. 

The photo identification card can be used by students to withdraw books 
from the libraries, for admission to most athletic, social, and cultural 
events, and as a general form of identification on campus. 

There is a replacement charge of $20 for lost photo identification cards. 
Questions concerning the identification card system should be addressed 
to the Office of the Register. 

Use of Email for Official Communication 

The University has adopted email as the primary means for sending official 
communications to students. Academic advisors, faculty, and campus 
administrative offices use email to convey important information and time- 
sensitive notices. All enrolled students are provided a University email 
address. Students are responsible for keeping their email address up to 
date or for forwarding email to another address. Failure to check email, 
errors in forwarding email, and returned email due to "mailbox full" or "user 
unknown" will not excuse a student from missing announcements or 
deadlines. 



Change of Address 



students are expected to notify the Office of the Registrar of any change in 
their local, permanent or e-mail address. Use the internet to keep address 
information current and accurate. Change of address forms are available at 
the following places:

ATTENDANCE AND ASSESSMENT/ 
EXAMINATIONS 

Attendance 

1. The university expects each student to take full responsibility for his 
or her academic work and academic progress. The student, to 
progress satisfactorily, must meet all of the requirements of each 
course for which he or she is registered. Students are expected to 
attend classes regularly, for consistent attendance offers the most 
effective opportunity open to all students to gain command of the 
concepts and materials of their courses of study. Except as provided 
below, absences will not be used in the computation of grades, and 
the recording of student absenceswill not be required of the faculty. 

2. It is the policy of the university to excuse the absences of students 
that result from the following causes: illness of the student, or 
illness of a dependent as defined by Board of Regents policy on 
family and medical leave; religious observance (where the nature of 
the observance prevents the student from being present during the 
class period); participation in university activities at the request of 
university authorities; and compelling circumstance beyond the 
student's control. Students claiming excused absence must apply 
in writing and furnish documentary support for their assertion that 
absence resulted from one of these causes. 

3. In some courses, attendance and in-class participation are ongoing 
requirements and an integral part of the work of the course. In other 
courses, occasional in-class assessments may occur, sometimes 



without advance notice. It is the responsibility of the instructor to 
inform each class at the beginning of the semester of the nature of 
in-class participation expected and the effect of absences on the 
evaluation of the student's work in the course. 

4. Absences in courses where in-class participation is a significant 
part of the work of the course shall be handled by the instructor in 
the course in accordance with the general policy of his or her 
academic unit. 

5. Permanent changes in the scheduling or location of classes must 
be approved by the chair, the director or the dean of the 
department, non-departmentalized school or college, as appropriate. 

Assessment 

1. The university provides students with excused absences the 
opportunity to reschedule significant assessments, except in 
cases where the nature of the assessment precluded the 
possibility of rescheduling, OR to perform a substitute assignment 
without penalty. An instructor is not under obligation to offer a 
substitute assignment or to give a student a make-up assessment 
unless the failure to perform was due to an excused absence, that 
is, due to illness (of the student or a dependent), religious 
observance (where the nature of the observance prevents the 
student from being present during the class period), participation 
in university activities at the request of university authorities, or 
compelling circumstances beyond the student's control. Students 
claiming excused absence must apply in writing and furnish 
documentary support for their assertion that absence resulted 
from one of these causes. 

The make-up assessment or substitute assignment must be at a 
time and place mutually agreeable to the instructor and student, 
cover only the material for which the student was originally 
responsible, and be at a comparable level of difficulty with the 
original assessment. In the event that a group of students 
requires the same make-up assessment or substitute assignment, 
one time and place may be scheduled. The make-up assessment 
or substitute assignment must not interfere with the student's 
regularly scheduled classes or in-class final examination. 

Students who have a concern regarding religious observances 
should see their instructors at the start of the semester. Although 
the university attempts to accommodate the religious beliefs of 
all of its members, it functions within a secular environment 
and is limited in the extent to which it can interrupt its 
normal operations. The president shall determine when it is 
appropriate for the campus community to restrict rescheduling 
examinations or other significant assessments on the dates of 
religious observance. 

At this time, examinations or other significant assessments may 
not be scheduled on Rosh Hoshanah, Yom Kippur, Good Friday, or 
the first two days of Passover. 

In cases of dispute, the student may appeal to the chair, the 
director or the dean of the department, non-departmentalized 
school or college offering the course within one week from the 
date of the refusal to schedule a make-up assessment. In those 
instances where the instructor is the chair, director or dean, the 
appeal shall be made to the next higher administrative officer, 
whose decision shall be final. 

2. The student must notify his or her instructor of the reason for 
absence as soon as possible. Where the reason for absence from 
a scheduled assessment is known well in advance (for example, in 
cases of religious observance or participation in university 
activities at the request of university authorities), the student 
must inform the instructor by the end of the schedule adjustment 
period. Prior notification is especially important in connection with 
final examinations, since failure to reschedule a final examination 
before conclusion of the final examination period may result in 
loss of credits during the semester. Where the reason is not 
known well in advance (for example, in cases of illness or 
compelling circumstances beyond the student's control), the 
student must inform the instructor as soon as the reason 
develops, or as soon as possible after its development. 

3. Ordinarily, assessments are given during class hours in 
accordance with the regularly scheduled (or officially "arranged") 
time and place of each course listed in the Schedule of Classes. 
No less than seven calendar days' notice shall be given for 
assessments scheduled at other times and places. It shall be the 



34 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



instructor's responsibility to ensure tliat the change in schedule 
does not interfere with any student's regularly scheduled classes 
or in-class final examinations. It is the responsibility of the student 
to be informed concerning the dates of announced quizzes, tests, 
and examinations. Performance assessments may take a variety 
of forms and need not be classroom-based written examinations. 

A final examination shall be given in every undergraduate course. 
Exceptions may be made with the written approval of the chair, the 
director or the dean of the department, non-departmentalized 
school or college, as appropriate. However, a student's final 
course grade shall be based on a combination of assessments 
that is at least the equivalent of a comprehensive final 
examination. No final examination or equivalent may be given or 
due during the last week of classes. All in-class final examinations 
must be held on the date and at the time listed In the official final 
examination schedule. Out-of-class final examination or equivalent 
assessments shall be due on the date and at a time listed in the 
official final examination schedule. 

The chair, the director or the dean of the department, non- 
departmentalized school or college, as appropriate. Is responsible 
for the adequate administration of assessments In courses under 
his or her jurisdiction. 

No in-class assessment shall exceed the allotted time for a 
regularly scheduled class period. In the case of in-class final 
examinations, the time allotted shall not exceed the scheduled 
final examination period. 

Each student shall be given the instructions and performance 
requirements for all assessments Intended to require more than 
one-half class period In a form translatable to hard copy, unless 
the chair, the director or the dean of the department, non- 
departmentalized school or college, as appropriate, has authorized 
another procedure. The Instructions and requirements of the 
assessment shall be archived in an appropriate medium in a 
suitable place. 

The following rules shall govern all in-class examinations, unless 
the Instructor for a specific course stipulates alternate rules for 
that course. A breach of any of the rules shall constitute 
"disruption of class," a disciplinary offense (Code of Student 
Conduct, section 9.m.), or may serve as the basis of an allegation 
of academic dishonesty. 



a. Students arriving late for an examination may 
unreasonably disrupt the examination room. 



not 



b. Students must leave all unauthorized materials (e.g., books, 
notes, calculators) with the proctor before being seated. 

c. Where seating arrangements are established by proctors, 
student must conform to these arrangements. 

d. Students may not return to an examination room after leaving, 
unless permission to do so has been granted by the proctor 
prior to the student's departure. 

e. Students must cease conversation prior to the passing out of 
examination papers and maintain silence during the entire 
examination period. 

f. Students must place examination papers face down on 
the writing desk until the examination is officially begun by 
the proctor. 

g. Students must keep examination papers flat on the writing 
desk at all times. 

h. Students at an examination must be prepared to show current 
University Identification. 

Each faculty member is to retain, for one full semester after a 
course Is ended, the students' final assessments in the appropriate 
medium. If a faculty member goes on leave for a semester or 
longer, or leaves the university, the final assessments and grade 
records for the course must be left with the chair, the director or the 
dean of the department, non-departmentalized school or college, as 
appropriate. 



Statement on Classroom Climate 

The University of Maryland values the diversity of its student body and is 
committed to providing a classroom atmosphere that encourages the equitable 
participation of all students. Patterns of interaction in the classroom between 
the faculty member and students and among the students themselves may 
Inadvertently communicate preconceptions about student abilities based on 
age, disability, ethnicity, gender, national origin, race, religion, or sexual 
orientation. These patterns are due in part to the differences the students 
themselves bring to the classroom. Classroom Instructors should be 
particularly sensitive to being equitable In the opportunities they provide 
students to answer questions in class, to contribute their own ideas, and to 
participate fully in projects in and outside of the classroom. 

Of equal importance to equity in the classroom is the need to attend to 
potential devaluation of students that can occur by reference to demeaning 
stereotypes of any group and/or overlooking the contributions of a 
particular group to the topic under discussion. Joking at the expense of any 
group creates an inhospitable environment and is Inappropriate. Moreover, 
In providing evaluations of students. It is essential that Instructors avoid 
distorting these evaluations with preconceived expectations about the 
intellectual capacities of any group. 

It is the responsibility of individual faculty members to review their 
classroom behaviors, and those of any teaching assistants they supervise, 
to ensure that students are treated equitably and not discouraged or 
devalued based on their differences. Resources for self-evaluation and 
training for faculty members on classroom climate and Interaction patterns 
are available from the Office of Human Relations. 



RECORDS 
IVIarking System 

The Office of the Registrar, located on the first floor of the Mitchell 
Building, is responsible for maintaining student records and Issuing 
official transcripts. 

The following symbols are used on the student's permanent record for all 
courses in which he or she is enrolled after the initial registration and 
schedule adjustment period: A-i-, A, A-, B-i-, B, B-, C-h, C, C-, D-i-, D, D-, F, XF, 
I, P, S, and W. These marks remain as part of the student's permanent 
record and may be changed only by the original instructor on certification, 
approved by the department chair and the dean, that an actual mistake 
was made in determining or recording the grade. 

A+, A, A — denotes excellent mastery of the subject and 
outstanding scholarship. In computations of cumulative or semester 
averages, a mark of ^+, A, A- will be assigned a value of 4 quality 
points per credit hour. 

B+, B, B — denotes good mastery of the subject and good 
scholarship. A mark of B-i-, B, B- is assigned a value of 3 quality 
points per credit hour. 

C+, C, C^ — denotes acceptable mastery of the subject. A mark of 
C+, C, C- is assigned a value of 2 quality points per credit hour. 

D+, D, D — denotes borderline understanding of the subject. It 
denotes marginal performance, and it does not represent 
satisfactory progress toward a degree. A mark of D+, D, D- is 
assigned a value of 1 quality point per credit hour. 

F — denotes failure to understand the subject and unsatisfactory 
performance. A mark of F is assigned a value of quality points per 
credit hour. 

XF — denotes failure due to academic dishonesty. 

S — is a department option mark that may be used to denote 
satisfactory performance by a student in progressing 
thesis projects, orientation courses, practice teaching, and the like. 
In computation of cumulative averages a mark of S will not 
be included. 

W — is used to Indicate withdrawal from a course in which the 
student was enrolled at the end of the schedule adjustment period. 
For Information and completeness, the mark of W is placed on the 
student's permanent record by the Office of the Registrar. The 
instructor will be notified that the student has withdrawn from the 
course. This mark Is not used in any computation of quality points 
or cumulative average totals at the end of the semester. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 35 



Audit — ^A student may register to audit a course or courses which have 
been designated as available under the audit option and 
in which space is avaiiabie. The notation AUD will be placed on 
the transcript for each course audited. A notation to the effect that this 
symboi does not imply attendance or any other effort in the course will 
be included on the transcript in the explanation of the grading system. 

Pass-Fail — The mark of P is a student option marl<, equivalent to 
A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D or D-. The student must inform 
the Office of the Registrar of the selection of this option by the end 
of the schedule adjustment period. 

The following Pass-Faii policy was approved by the Board of Regents for 
implementation beginning with the Spring 1989 semester: 

1. To register for a course under the pass-fail option, an 
undergraduate must have completed 30 or more credit hours of 
college credit with a GPA of at least 2.0. At least 15 of these 
credit hours must have been completed at University of Maryland, 
College Parl< with a University of Maryland GPA of at least 2.0. 

2. Courses for which this option applies must be electives in the 
student's program. The courses may not be college, major, field of 
concentration, or general education program requirements. 

3. Only one course per semester may be registered for under the 
pass-fail option. 

4. No more than 12 semester hours of credit may be taken under the 
pass-fail option during a student's college career. 

5. Students may not choose this option when re-registering for 
a course. 

6. When registering under the pass-fail option, a course that is 
passed will count as iiours in the student's record but will not be 
computed in the grade point average. A course that is faiied will 
appear on the student's record and will be computed both in the 
overall average and the semester average. 

7. Students registering for a course under the pass-fail option are 
required to complete all regular course requirements. Their work 
will be evaluated by the instructor by the normal procedure for 
letter grades. The instructor will submit the normal grade. The 
grades A-i-, A, A-, B-i-, B, B-, C-i-, C, C-, D-i-, D or D- will automatically 
be converted by the Office of the Registrar to the grade P on 
the student's permanent record. The grade F will remain as given. 
The choice of grading option may be changed only during the 
schedule adjustment period for courses in which the student is 
currently registered. 

incompietes. The mark of "I" is an exceptional mark that is an instructor 
option. It is given only to a student whose work in a course has been 
qualitatively satisfactory, when, because of illness or other circumstances 
beyond the student's control, he or she has been unable to complete some 
small portion of the work of the course. In no case wiii tiie marl< "i" be 
recorded for a student wiio has not compieted tlie major portion of tlie 
work of tiie course. 

1. This Incomplete Contract form must be submitted to the dean of 
the college offering the course within six weeks after the grade 
submission deadline (if a grade hasn't already been submitted.) If 
any Incomplete Contract isn't completed within the six week 
period, the instructor will convert the "I" to the appropriate grade. 

2. The student will remove the "I" by completing work assigned by 
the instructor; it is the student's responsibility to request 
arrangements for the completion of the work. The work must be 
completed by the time stipulated in the contract, usually by the 
end of the next semester, but in any event, no later than one year. 
If the remaining work for the course as defined by the contract is 
not completed on schedule, the instructor will convert the "I" to 
the grade indicated by the contract. 

3. Exceptions to the stated deadline may be granted by the student's 
dean (in negotiation with the faculty member or the faculty 
member's dean) upon the written request of the student if 
circumstances warrant further delay. 

4. If the instructor is unavailable, the department chair, upon request 
of the student will make appropriate arrangements for the student 
to complete the course requirements. 

5. It is the responsibility of the instructor or department chair 
concerned to submit the grade promptly upon completion of the 
conditions of the Incomplete Contract. 



6. Tiie "i" cannot be removed througii re-registration for tiie course 
or tiirougii "credit by examination." An "I" mark is not used in the 
computation of quality points or cumulative grade point averages. 

Record Notations 

In addition to the above marks, there are provisions for other record or 
transcript notations that may be used based on university policy and 
individual circumstances. 

Duplicate course: Used to indicate two courses with the same course 
content. The second course is counted in the cumulative totals earned; 
both courses are counted in the cumulative attempted credit and in the 
calculation of grade point average. 

Non-applicable (Non-AppI): in all cases of transfer from one college 
to another at the University of Maryland, College Park, the dean of the 
receiving college, with the approval of the student, shall indicate which 
courses, if any, in the student's previous academic program are not 
applicable to his or her new program, and shall notify the Office of the 
Registrar of the adjustments that are to be made in determining the 
student's progress toward a degree. Deletions may occur both in credits 
attempted and correspondingly in credits earned. This evaluation shall be 
made upon the student's initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. If 
a student transfers from one program to another, his or her record 
evaluation shall be made by the dean in the same way as if he or she were 
transferring colleges. If the student subsequently transfers to a third 
college, the dean of the third college shall make a similar initial 
adjustment; courses marked "nonapplicable" by the second dean may 
become applicable in the third program. 

Excluded Credit (Excl Crd): Excluded credit is noted when Academic 
Clemency has been granted. 

Campus Repeat Policy 

The following policies apply to ALL courses that may not be repeated for 
additional credit. 

1. The following students are required to follow the new 
repeat policy; 

a. All new freshmen who began at University of Maryland, College 
Park Fall 1990 and after. 

b. Transfer students from schools other than Maryland 
community colleges who began at University of Maryland, 
College Park, Fall 1990 and after. This includes transfer 
students from another University of Maryland institution. 

2. There is a limit to the number of times a student may repeat a 
course. Students may have one repeat of any course in which they 
earned an A-t-, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C-i-, C, C-, D-i-, D, D-, F, P, S, W, 
NGR or Audit; they cannot be registered (after the schedule 
adjustment period) for any given course more than twice. A 
student's dean's office may grant an exception allowing an 
additional course repeat. In this case, students must present a 
plan for successfully completing the course. All attempts will be 
counted toward the total limit for repeatable credits. 

Note: Students may not ciioose the Pass-Fail option when re- 
registering for a course or re-register for a course in which a 
grade of "i" has been noted. 

3. Students may repeat no more than 18 credits. Additionally, if a 
student withdraws from all courses during a semester, those 
courses are not included in this limit. 

4. The grade point average will include all attempts at a given course 
that result in a grade of A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C-i-, C, C-, D+, D, D-, 
or F. However, to help freshmen and transfer students adjust to 
the University of Maryland, College Park, the following two 
exceptions allow for the cumulative GPA to be calculated so that 
only the higher grade is included: 

a. When the repeated course was taken within the student's first 
semester at University of Maryland, College Park, or 

b. When the repeated course was taken within the student's first 
24 credit hours attempted (including transfer credits) or within 
the semester during which the student reached the 24th credit 
hour attempted. 

5. Any grade earned in prior attempts of a repeated course 
will appear on the student's transcript, regardless of whether 
the grade is dropped from, or included in, the cumulative grade 
point average. 



36 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



6. Repeat by transfer — If a student repeats by transfer a course that 
was taken before or during the semester in which the student 
reached 24 credits attempted (including transfer credits) and the 
transfer grade is higher, then the original grade in the course will 
be excluded from the GPA calculation, 
a. If the course was taken after the semester in which the 

student reached 24 credits attempted, the original grade 

remains in the GPA calculation. 

Repeat Policy Prior to Fall 1990: 

The following students follow the previous repeat policy: 

• Students who began at University of Maryland, College Park, 
before the Fall 1990 semester (including students who enter 
University of Maryland, College Park for summer 1990). 

• Transfer students who began at a Maryland community 
college before Fall 1990. 

• UMBO College of Engineering students who began 
before 1990. 

The highest grade received in the repeated course is used to calculate the 
GPA. A student may repeat any course; however no student may be 
registered for a course more than three times. 

If a student repeats a course in which he or she has already earned a 
mark of A, B, C, D, P, or S, the subsequent attempt shall not increase the 
total hours earned toward the degree. Only the highest mark will be used 
in computation of the student's cumulative average. Under unusual 
circumstances, the student's dean may grant an exception to this policy. 



Academic Clemency Policy 



Undergraduate students returning to the University of Maryland, College 
Park in pursuit of their initial baccalaureate degree, after a separation of 
five calendar years may petition the appropriate dean to have a number of 
previously earned grades and credits removed from the calculation of their 
cumulative grade point average. Up to 16 credits and corresponding 
grades from courses previously completed at the University of Maryland, 
College Park, will be removed from calculation of the grade point average 
and will not be counted toward graduation requirements. The petition for 
clemency must be filed in the first semester of return to the institution. 
Approval is neither automatic or guaranteed. 

Proficiency Examination Programs 

The University of Maryland, College Park offers new, continuing, and 
returning students several opportunities to earn college credit by 
demonstrating achievement in a subject field through examination. College 
Park recognizes three proficiency examination programs for credit: Advanced 
Placement (AP), Departmental Proficiency Examination Program (Credit-by- 
Examination), and College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). Undergraduate 
students may earn a total of up to one-half of the credits required for their 
degree through examination. Usually, this is no more than 60 credits. 
Students are responsible for consulting with the appropriate dean or advisor 
about the applicability of any credits earned by examination to a specific 
degree program. Students should also seek assistance in determining which 
University of Maryland, College Park courses duplicate credits earned for an 
examination. Students will not receive credit for both passing an 
examination and completing an equivalent course. 

Advanced Placement (AP) Credit. For complete information about 
the applicability of AP exams and the assignment of credit, please see 
chapter 1. 

Departmental Proficiency Examination (Credit-by-Examination)* 

College Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, customarily referred to as 
"credit-by-examination," are comparable to comprehensive final examinations 
in a course. Although the mathematics and foreign-language departments 
receive the most applications for credit by examination, many departments will 
provide examinations for certain of their courses. Initial inquiry as to whether 
an examination in a specific course is available is best made at the academic 
department which offers the course in question. 

If an examination for a course is available, the department will provide 
information regarding time and place, type of examination, and material which 
might be helpful in preparing for the examination. An undergraduate who 
passes a departmental proficiency examination is given credit and quality 
points toward graduation in the amount regularly allowed in the course, 
provided such credits do not duplicate credit obtained by some other means. 



After making arrangements with the department, apply through the Division 
of Letters and Sciences, 1117 Hornbake Library, 301-405-2793. 

Policies governing credit by examination: 

1. The applicant must be formally admitted to the University of 
Maryland, College Park. Posting of credit earned, however, will be 
delayed until the student is registered. 

2. Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be taken for 
courses in which the student has remained registered at the 
University of Maryland, College Park, beyond the Schedule 
Adjustment Period even with a transcript notation of "W." 

3. Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be used to 
change grades, including Incompletes and Withdrawals. 

4. Application for credit-by-examination is equivalent to registration 
for the course; however, the following conditions apply: 

a. A student may cancel the application at any time prior 
to completion of the examination with no entry on his/ 
her permanent record. (Equivalent to the schedule 
adjustment period.) 

b. The instructor makes the results of the examination available 
to the student prior to formal submission of the grade. Before 
final submission of the grade, the student may elect not to 
have this grade recorded. In this case, a mark of W is 
recorded. (Equivalent to the drop period.) 

c. No examination may be attempted more than twice. 

d. The instructor must certify on the report of the examination 
submitted to the Office of the Registrar that copies of the 
examination questions (or identifying information in the case 
of standardized examinations), and the student's answers 
have been filed with the chair of the department offering 
the course. 

5. If accepted by the student (see 4.b, above), letter grades earned 
through credit-by-examination are entered on the student's 
transcript, and are used in computing his/her cumulative grade 
point average. A student may elect to take a "credit-by- 
examination" "Pass-Fail" only if the credit fulfills an elective in the 
student's degree program. No college, major, field of 
concentration, or general education program requirement may 
be taken under the pass-fail option. Please refer to the Pass-Fail 
policy under the "Records" section in this chapter. 

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) recognizes college-level 
competence achieved outside the college classroom. Two types of CLEP 
tests are available: General Examinations, which cover the content of a 
broad field of study; and Subject Examinations, which cover the specific 
content of a college course. Credit can be earned and will be recognized by 
College Park for some CLEP General or Subject Examinations, provided 
satisfactory scores are attained. Credits earned under CLEP are not 
considered "residence" credit, but are treated as transfer credit. 

CLEP exams are administered at CLEP testing centers throughout the 
country. The University of Maryland, College Park is a CLEP Test Center 
(Test Center Code: 5814). To obtain an application or additional 
information, contact the CLEP Administrator in the Counseling Center, 
Room 0106A Shoemaker Hall, (301-314-7688), or write to CLEP, ON 
6600, Princeton, NJ, 08541-6600. 

Students who want to earn credit through CLEP must request their official 
score reports to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admission, 
Mitchell Building, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742-5235. 
(The University of Maryland, College Park, Score Recipient Code is 5814.) 

Policies governing CLEP are as follows: 

1. A student must matriculate at the university before CLEP credits 
are officially posted. The posting will not be done until a student 
has established a record. 

2. Each institution of the University System of Maryland establishes 
standards for acceptance of CLEP exemptions and credits. 
Students must check with the institution to which they will 
transfer to learn if they will lose, maintain, or gain credit. 

3. College Park will award credit for a CLEP examination 

(a) provided the examination was being accepted for credit here 
on the date the student took the examination, and 

(b) provided that the examination was not taken during a 
student's final 30 credits. The final 30 hours of credit are to 
be taken in residence, unless prior approval has been 
granted by the student's dean. 

4. Credit will not be given for both completing a course and passing 
an examination covering substantially the same material. 

5. Furthermore, credit will not be awarded for CLEP examinations if 
the student has previously completed more advanced courses in 
the same field. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 37 



CLEP examinations posted on transcripts from other institutions 
will be accepted if the examination has been approved by College 
Park and the scores reported are equal to or higher than those 
required by this institution. If the transcript from the prior 
institution does not carry the scores, it will be the responsibility of 
the student to request Educational Testing Service to fonward a 
copy of the official report to the Office of Admissions. 



The university awards credits for CLEP Examinations only as indicated on 
the chart provided in this chapter (if an examination is not listed, it is not 
accepted for credit at this institution). 

If you have questions about the applicability of specific credit to 
your program, consult the list provided in this catalog or contact your

38 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



TRANSFER CREDIT 

(For current University of IVIaryland, College Park students) 

The Office of the Registrar posts all transfer credit that would be 
acceptable to any of the degree programs at the University of Maryland, 
College Park. The dean of the college in which the student is enrolled 
determines which transfer credits are applicable to the student's degree 
program. In general, credit from academic courses taken at institutions of 
higher education accredited by a regional accrediting association will 
transfer, provided that the course is completed with at least a grade of C 
and the course is similar in content and level to work offered at College 
Park. The title of courses accepted for transfer credit will be noted on the 
student's record; however, the grade will not. Grades from transferred 
courses are not included in the University of Maryland, College Park, grade 
point average calculation. See chapter 1 for additional information. 

Courses taken at other institutions while attending the University of 
iVIaryiand, Coiiege Parl< 

1. Courses talten at another institution may not be credited toward 
a degree without approval in advance by the dean of the college 
from which the student expects a degree. The same rule applies 
to registration in the summer program of another institution. 
"Permission to Enroll in Another Institution" forms are available in 
the office of the student's dean. This form must be submitted and 
approved by the college for any course which will eventually be 
added to the university transcript. 

2. Courses tal<en at other University of iVIaryiand Institutions 

For students who began their attendance at the University of 
Maryland, College Park in Fall 1989 or later, all course work taken 
at any University System of Maryland institution will be posted as 
transfer credit. For all students who attended Maryland prior to 
Fall 1989, courses taken at another University of Maryland Board 
of Regents institution (UMBC, UMAB, UMES, UMUC) prior to Fall 
1989 will be included in the cumulative GPA. Courses taken at any 
other institution may not be credited toward a degree without 
advance approval. See #1 above for information. 

3. USIVI Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registration Program 
University undergraduate students participating in the Concurrent 
Inter-Institutional Registration Program should obtain permission 
from their dean. Course work counts as resident credit. Students 
participating in this program must be enrolled full time in a degree 
program at University of Maryland, College Park, for the semester 
in which these courses are taken. 

4. Consortium of Universities of the Washington IVIetropolitan Area 
Courses taken through the Consortium are considered to be 
resident credit. See above under "Consortium" and see the 
Schedule of Classes for information. 

Transfer Credit Center 

The Transfer Credit Center provides articulation information and assistance to 



students and transfer advisors. More information is ava 
on Transfer Admission in chapter 1 and on the internet at 



lahlp in thp gprtinn

COMPUTATION OF GRADE POINT AVERAGE 
(GPA) 

GPA is computed by dividing the total number of quality points accumulated 
in courses for which a grade of A+, A, A-, B-i-, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D-i-, D, D-, or 
F has been assigned by the total number of credits attempted in those 
courses. Courses for which a mark of P, S, I, NGR or W has been assigned 
are not included in computing the GPA. Each letter grade has a numerical 
value: A+, A, A- = 4; B+, B, B- = 3; C-i-, C, C- = 2; D+, D, D- = 1; F = 0. 
Multiplying this value by the number of credits for a particular course gives 
the number of quality points earned for that course. 

See Repeat Policy to determine the effect of repeated courses in the 
calculation of GPA. 

SEMESTER ACADEMIC HONORS 

Semester Academic Honors (Dean's List) will be awarded to those students 
who complete, within any given semester (excluding winter and summer 
terms), 12 or more credits (excluding courses with grades of P and S) with 
a semester GPA of 3.5 or higher. This recognition will be noted on the 
student's academic record. 



UNDERGRADUATE POLICY ON ACADEMIC 
PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Consistent with the University of Maryland Student Academic Success - 
Degree Completion Policy, it is the intent of the University that its students 
make satisfactory progress toward their degree objectives, and achieve 
academic success. If a student has special circumstances that make it 
impossible to complete a normal course load, the student must meet with 
an advisor to discuss the circumstances, the student's plans for continued 
progress toward a degree, and the implications for continued enrollment. 

The following guidelines for retention of students refer separately to 
semester (Fall and Spring) and Winter or Summer terms: 

a. Academic retention is based solely on grade point average (GPA). A 
minimum of 120 successfully completed course credits is required 
for graduation in any degree curriculum. Individual colleges, 
schools, and departments may establish higher requirements for 
graduation. Students must consult the appropriate college, school, 
or department for specific information. 

b. Satisfactory Performance is defined as the achievement of a 
cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above. Students whose semester GPA 
falls below 2.0 are encouraged to meet with their advisors 
regarding the development of a plan that will appropriately 
respond to the student's academic difficulties and lead to 
academic improvement. Individual colleges, schools and 
departments may establish separate requirements for mandatory 
advising. Students must consult the appropriate college, school, 
or department for specific information. 

c. Unsatisfactory Performance is defined as the achievement of a 
cumulative GPA of less than 2.0. Students will be placed on 
Academic Probation following any semester in which a 2.0 
cumulative GPA is not achieved. Normally, students will be 
Academically Dismissed if they are unable to raise their cumulative 
GPA to 2.0 or higher at the end of their probationary semester. 

Academic Probation: 

students will be placed on academic probation if their cumulative 
GPA falls below 2.0. Normally, a student is expected to attain a 
2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of any probationary semester. 
Students who fail to achieve a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of 
their probationary semester may be academically dismissed, 
depending on their credit level as detailed below. 

1. Students who have earned 60 credits or more will be 
dismissed from the University in the event their cumulative 
GPA remains below 2.0 at the end of their probationary 
semester. Students who are on probation and attain a 
cumulative GPA of 2.0 at the end of a winter or summer term 
will not be subject to dismissal in the subsequent semester. 

2. Students who are on academic probation and have earned 
fewer than 60 credits will be permitted to continue on 
academic probation if a minimum semester GPA of 2.0 is 
achieved in each semester of probation. 

a. Full-time students must complete 9 or more credits in each 
semester of probation. A completed credit is defined as 
credit for any course in which a student receives a grade of 
A, B, C, D, F, P, orS. 

b. Students who meet this requirement will be permitted to 
continue on probation until the close of the semester 
(excluding winter and summer terms) in which they attain a 
cumulative GPA of 2.0. 

c. However, students who are on probation will be dismissed if 
they have not achieved a cumulative GPA of 2.0 at the end 
of the semester in which they complete 60 credits. 

d. Students who are on probation and attain a cumulative GPA 
of 2.0 at the end of a winter or summer term will not be 
subject to dismissal in the subsequent semester. 

3. The Office of the Registrar will notify students when they are 
placed on academic probation. Such notices will include a 
requirement that the students consult an academic advisor in 
their colleges early in the probationary semester and in no 
event later than the beginning of the early registration period 
for the next semester. The Office of the Registrar will notify 
the colleges of students who are placed on academic 
probation and will note the academic probationary status on 
the students' academic record. 

a. The academic advisors will assist students in developing 
appropriate plans for achieving satisfactory academic 
performance. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 39 



b. Students who are placed on probation will not be allowed to 
add or drop courses, or register without the approval of an 
academic advisor in their college. 

Academic Dismissal: 

1. students who have earned 60 or more credits will be 
dismissed if their cumulative GPA remains below 2.0 for two 
consecutive semesters (excluding winter and summer terms). 
Students who attain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 in the preceding 
winter or summer term will not be subject to dismissal. 

2. Students who have earned fewer than 60 credits will be 
dismissed following any probationary semester in which they 
fail to attain a minimum 2.0 semester GPA and complete the 
requisite credits detailed under 'Academic Probation.' Students 
who attain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 in the preceding winter or 
summer term will not be subject to dismissal. 

3. Students who have been academically dismissed and who are 
reinstated will be academically dismissed again if a cumulative 
GPA of at least 2.0 is not achieved by the end of the first 
semester after reinstatement. Reinstated students will not be 
allowed to add or drop courses, or to register during any 
semester without the approval of an academic advisor in their 
college, unless a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 is achieved. 

4. The Office of the Registrar will notily the appropriate University 
offices when students are academically dismissed and will 
note the dismissal on the students' academic record. 

5. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will notify students in 
writing when they are dismissed. The notices will include a 
statement that registration for the next semester (excluding 
winter or summer terms) will be canceled. 

6. Normally, a student dismissed for academic reasons must wait 
out one semester (fall or spring) before reinstatement. 
Exceptions will be determined by the Faculty Petition Board. 

Application for Academic Reinstatement. 

1. students who have been dismissed may apply to the Faculty 
Petition Board for reinstatement on the grounds of mitigating 
circumstances, such as (1) demonstrated progress toward a 
degree by successful completion of 24 degree-applicable 
credits in the preceding year, (ii) continuing improvement in the 
cumulative grade point average, and (ill) progress in general 
education and major requirements. 

2. The application for reinstatement must include a written 
statement explaining the circumstances leading to dismissal 
and a proposed plan to remedy those circumstances. Students 
are encouraged to consult with their academic advisors prior to 
submitting their applications to the Faculty Petition Board. 

3. Applications for reinstatement can be obtained from the 
Reenrollment Office in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 
which is responsible for administering the reinstatement 
process in coordination with the Faculty Petition Board. 

Faculty Petition Board. 

1. The Reenrollment Office is responsible for submitting the 
reinstatement applications for review and decision by the Faculty 
Petition Board, which is comprised of tenured faculty appointed 
by the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost. 
The Board is the sole arbiter of reinstatement applications. 

2. The Faculty Petition Board has the discretion to establish the 
terms for reinstatement, including the requirements for 
achieving academic improvement and developing an academic 
plan for success. 

3. The Reenrollment Office will forward the Board's decision to 
students at their permanent addresses. 

Dismissal of Delinquent Students. 

The university reserves the right to request at any time the withdrawal of a 
student who cannot or does not maintain the required standard of 
scholarship, or whose continuance in the university would be detrimental to 
his or her health, or the health of others, or whose conduct is not 
satisfactory to the authorities of the university. Additional information about 
the dismissal of delinquent students may be found in the Code of Student 
Conduct, Appendix C, in Chapter 10.

for knowing and meeting all degree requirements for graduation in any 
curriculum rests with the student. Specific degree requirements are listed in 
this catalog under the college and/or department as appropriate. 

Each student should check with the proper academic authorities no later 
than the close of the junior year to ascertain his or her standing with 
respect to advancement toward a degree. For this purpose, each student 
should be sure to review their semester gr ades and unofficial transc ript on

1) Residency requirement — Final 30-Hour Rule 

a. All candidates for University of Maryland, College Park, degrees 
should plan to take their final 30 credits in residence since the 
advanced work of their major study normally occurs in the last year 
of the undergraduate program. Included in these 30 semester hours 
will be a minimum of 15 semester hours in courses numbered 300 
or above, including at least 12 semester hours required in the major 
field (in curricula requiring such concentrations). 

b. A student who at the time of graduation will have completed 30 
credit hours in residence at the University of Maryland, College 
Park, may, under unusual circumstances, be permitted to take a 
maximum of 8 of the final 30 credits of record, comprising no 
more than two courses, at another institution. A student who has 
completed 75 credit hours in residence at the University, may, 
under unusual circumstances, be permitted to take a maximum of 
16 of the final 30 credits of record, comprising no more than 4

must be obtained in advance from the dean and chair/director of 
the academic unit from which the student expects to graduate. 
Any course taken at another institution and intended to satisfy a 
specific major requirement at the University of Maryland must be 
approved as an equivalent course by the chair/director and the 
dean. Normally, no more than two courses required by the major, 
including major and supporting courses, will be approved. 
Exceptions beyond the articulated maximum credits and/or

40 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



2) Enrollment in Majors. A student must be enrolled In the major 
program from which he or she plans to graduate, when registering 
for the final 15 hours of the baccalaureate program. This 
requirement also applies to the third year of the combined, 
preprofessional degree programs. 

3) Credit Requirements. While several undergraduate curricula 
require more than 120 credits, no baccalaureate curriculum 
requires fewer than 120. No baccalaureate will be awarded in 
instances In which fewer than 120 credit hours have been earned. 

It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize himself or 
herself with the requirements of specific curricula. The student is 
urged to seek advice on these matters from the departments, 
colleges, or the Office of the Dean for Office of Undergraduate 
Studies. 

To earn a baccalaureate from the University of Maryland, College 
Park, a minimum of 30 credits must be taken In residence. 

4) Grade Point Average. A minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point 
average Is required for graduation In all curricula. 



MINORS 

Minors afford students the opportunity to pursue a limited but structured 
concentration In a coherent field of study outside their major. The minor 
may be a truncated version of a major or a distinctive Intellectual subset of 
a discipline. Minors are not offered In every field of study. Students should 
inquire with departme nts for current availability of minors or visit: 
www.provost.umd.edu. 



The structures of minors vary In detail, but, with rare exceptions, they all 
require no fewer than 15 and no more than 24 credits with at least 9 
credits In upper division courses (300 level or above). No more than six 
credits (or two courses) may be applied to satisfy both the requirements of 
a minor and a major program. No course may be used to satisfy the 
requirements of more than one minor. Ail courses taken for a minor must 
be completed with a minimum grade of C. 

To Insure appropriate academic advising, students who wish to pursue a 
minor should inform both the college responsible for their major and the 
unit offering the minor as early as possible, but in no case later than one 
full academic year before the expected date of graduation. When a student 
has completed all requirements for the minor, the unit offering the minor 
shall notify the student's college, which verifies that the student has met 
all requirements and officially notifies the Registrar's Office. The 
completion of a minor Is posted on the student's official transcript only 
when the student completes all requirements for the bachelor's degree. 

In February 2004, the University Senate voted to phase out academic 
citations and replace them with minors. Students pursuing an academic 
citation should contact the respective department or program for 
information on this conversion process. 



SECOND MAJORS AND SECOND DEGREES

excellence In scholarship. They are awarded to the top 10% of all students 
graduating In each college over the course of a year. Summa cum iaude is 
awarded to students with a GPA equal to the highest two percent of all 
college graduates over the past three terms, magna cum laude to the next 
highest three percent, and cum laude to the following five percent. To be 
eligible for this recognition, at least 60 semester hours must be earned at 
the university or at a program In which credit earned is counted as 
University of Maryland, College Park, resident credit (contact the Office of

minimum. No student with a grade-point average of less than 3.3 will be 
considered for a commencement honor. Because grades for a term 
generally are officially recorded after the term's graduation day, 
computation of the student's GPA will not Include grades for courses 
taken during the student's final semester at the university. However, the 
hours taken during that semester will apply toward the 60-hour 
requirement. 



Election to Phi Beta Kappa 



Organized In 1776, Phi Beta Kappa Is the oldest and most widely 
respected academic honorary society In the United States. Invitation to 
membership Is based on outstanding scholastic achievement in studies of 
the liberal arts and sciences. Student members are chosen entirely on the 
basis of academic excellence; neither extracurricular leadership nor service 
to the community Is considered. Election is held twice a year, once In the 
fall and once In the spring semester. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 41 



The process for election to Phi Beta Kappa involves a review in November 
for those who graduated the previous August or those who will graduate in 
December, and a review in March for those graduating in May. A number of 
qualifying juniors are also considered during the same semester. The 
review is conducted by a select committee of faculty members representing 
the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The committee 
reviews transcripts of all juniors and seniors with qualifying grade point 
averages. Whether a student qualifies for membership in Phi Beta Kappa 
depends on the quality, depth, and breadth of the student's record in 
liberal education courses. The final decision for election rests with the 
resident faculty members of Phi Beta Kappa. There is no application 
procedure for election to Phi Beta Kappa (see #4 below for possible 
exception). 

Requirements for selection to membership in Phi Beta Kappa at the 
University of Maryland, College Park, campus chapter include: 

1. Grade Point Average: For seniors a grade point average of at least 
3.5 overall as well as in all liberal arts and sciences courses taken. 
For juniors the minimum grade point average is 3.75, and possibly 
higher depending on the number of candidates in a particular year. 

2. Residence: At least 60 credit hours must be taken at the University 
of Maryland, College Park. 

3. Liberai Courses: For seniors, at least 90 credit hours in courses in 
the liberal arts and sciences (where "liberal" courses are to be 
distinguished from professional or technical courses), at least 45 of 
which must be taken at the University of Maryland, College Park. For 
juniors, at least 75 total credit hours must be completed, at least 
60 of which are in courses in the liberal arts and sciences; of these, 
at least 45 must be taken at the University of Maryland, College 
Park. Students would ordinarily be majors in one of the programs in 
the liberal arts and sciences. However, students with the requisite 
number of liberal credit hours can be admitted if they have 
completed at least 5 courses (15 credit hours or more) for seniors 
or three courses (9 credit hours or more) for juniors in a single 
liberal arts and sciences department/program at UMCP. 

4. Required courses: One semester of mathematics, which must be 
fulfilled by college-level credit hours (including AP credit), and two 
college semesters of a foreign language at the elementary level, or 
above. The language requirement may also be satisfied by 
completion of four years of one language other than English at the 
high-school level or above, or the equivalent. Students with such a 
foreign language background who wish to be considered for 
admission to Phi Beta Kappa should notify the Phi Beta Kappa 
office in writing and provide the appropriate documentation (sucii as 
a high school transcript) prior to the month of consideration. Credit 
is not allowed based on SAT scores. 

5. Distribution: The credit hours presented for Phi Beta Kappa must 
contain at least three liberal arts and sciences courses (9 credit 
hours or more) in each of the three following areas: a) arts and 
humanities, b) behavioral and social sciences, c) natural sciences 
and mathematics (including a laboratory science course; this 
requirement cannot be fulfilled by AP credit). All the courses in at 
least two of the three required areas must be completed at UMCP 
and in the remaining area no more than one AP course can be used 
to fulfill the requirement. In general Phi Beta Kappa will accept the 
CORE classification of courses but courses which CORE designates 
as having more than one classification may not satisfy any Phi Beta 
Kappa distribution requirement. Students with more challenging 
courses and moderately high grade point averages are preferred by 
the committee to those with higher grade point averages but a 
narrow range of courses. Minimal qualifications in more than one 
area may preclude election to Phi Beta Kappa. 

Recommended criteria include: 

Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee election to Phi Beta 
Kappa. The judgment of the resident faculty members of Phi Beta Kappa on 
the quality, depth, and breadth of the student's record is the deciding 
factor in every case. 

Any questions about criteria for election to Phi Beta Kappa (including 
equivalency examinations in foreign languages) should be directed to 
the Phi Beta Kappa Office, Dr. Denis Sullivan, 301-405-8986. 



ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND STUDENT 
CONDUCT CODES 

Academic Integrity 

The University of Maryland is an academic community. Its fundamental 
purpose is the pursuit of knowledge. Like all other communities, the 
University can function properly only if its members adhere to clearly 
established goals and values. Essential to the fundamental purpose of the 
University is the commitment to the principles of truth and academic 
honesty. Accordingly, the Code of Academic Integrity is designed to ensure 
that the principle of academic honesty is upheld. While all members of the 
University share this responsibility, the Code of Academic integrity is 
designed so that special responsibility for upholding the principle of 
academic honesty lies with the students. 

The University's Code of Academic integrity is a nationally recognized honor 
code, administered by a Student Honor Council. Any of the following acts, 
when committed by a student, shall constitute academic dishonesty: 

Clieating: intentionaliy using or attempting to use unauthorized materiais, 
information, or study aids in any academic exercise. 

Fabrication: intentionai and unautiiorized falsification or invention of any 
information or citation in an academic exercise. 

Faciiitating academic dislionesty: Intentionally or knowingly iieiping or 
attempting to iieip another to violate any provision of the Code of Academic 
Integrity. 

Piagiarism: intentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas of 
another as one's own In any academic exercise. 

If it is determined that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred, a 
grade of "XF" is considered the normal sanction for undergraduate 
students. The grade of "XF" is noted on the academic transcript as "failure 
due to academic dishonesty. Lesser or more severe sanctions may be 
imposed when there are circumstances to warrant such consideration. 
Suspension or expulsion from the University may be imposed even for a 
first offense. Students should consult the Code of Academic Integrity, 
Appendix 0, for further information regarding procedures for reporting and 
resolving allegations of academic dishonesty. 

Honor Pledge 

In 2002, the University adopted an honor pledge in which students are 
asked to write out and sign the pledge on major assignments and exams, 
as designated by the instructor. The Honor Pledge is designed to 
encourage instructors and students to reflect upon the University's core 
institutional value of academic integrity. Professors who invite students to 
sign the Honor Pledge signify that there is an ethical component to 
teaching and learning. Student who write by hand and sign the Pledge 
affirm a sense of pride in the integrity of their work. The Pledge states: 

"/ pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any unauthorized 
assistance on this assignment/ examination."

Student Conduct 

The primary purpose for the imposition of discipline in the university setting 
is to protect the campus community. Consistent with that purpose, 
reasonable efforts are also made to foster the personal and social 
development of those students who are held accountable for violations of 
university regulations. Compared to disciplinary systems at many 
universities. University of Maryland students are given unusual authority 
and responsibility for management of the campus process. Membership on 
the student judiciary is an extraordinary educational experience, and 
opportunity to be of service to the community, and a personal honor. 

Cases that may result in suspension or expulsion are heard by judicial 
boards, comprised entirely of students. In such cases, students are 
accorded substantial procedural protections, including an opportunity for a 
hearing and an appeal. Less serious cases are resolved in disciplinary 
conferences conducted by University staff members. Acts of violence 
(including any sexual assault), intimidation, disruption, or rioting; 
substantial theft or vandalism; fraud or forgery; use or distribution of illegal 
drugs; and any Code of Student Conduct violation motivated by 



42 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



considerations of sex, race, etiinic origin, sexual orientation or religion are 
forms of misconduct that most frequently result in dismissal from the 
University. Students accused of violating University disciplinary regulations 
are encouraged to discuss the allegations with their parents or guardians, 
legal counsel, and with appropriate University staff members.

To obtain a CORE Academic Planner and Record Keeper, visit your college advising office, or the Office of Undergraduate Studies (2130 Mitchell Building). 

Who Completes CORE? 

To earn a baccalaureate degree, all students at the University of Maryland, College Park complete both a major course of study and a campus-wide general 
education program. Students who enter the University May 1990 and after complete CORE requirements. 

Exceptions: Students who enter the University with nine or more credits earned before May 1990 from the University of Maryland, College Park, or any other 
college may complete their general education requirements under the University Studies Program (USP), subject to certain limitations. (See "USP" and 
"Statute of Limitations..." sections below.) Advanced Placement (AP) and other examination-based credits do not count In these determinations. 

University Studies Program (USP) 

For detailed Information about USP requiremen ts, see undergraduate catalogs dated 1992 or earlier, or contact the CORE program at 2130 Mitchell Building, 
301-405-9359. Information on USP Is also at : | www.ugst.umd.edu/core/usp.litmi f ^OTE: Students who graduate under USP requirements August 1994 and 
thereafter must fulfill the Advanced Studies requirements described m the hall iay4 and subsequent catalogs. (See CORE Advanced Studies section below..) 

Statute of Limitations for Previous General Education Programs (GEP, GUR, USP) 

Undergraduate students who return to the university after August 1987 no longer have the option of completing general education requirements under the 
older General Education Program (GEP) or the General University Requirements (GUR). Thereafter, following any substantive change In general education 
requirements (like the change In Fall 1990 from USP to CORE), undergraduate students returning or transferring to College Park after a separation of five 
continuous years must follow the requirements In effect at the time of re-entry. An exception may be granted to those students who at the time of separation 
had completed 60 percent of the general education requirements then In effect. 

Maryland Public Community College Students 

For the purpose of determining which general education program is required (CORE or USP), students transferring to the University of Maryland from Maryland 
public community colleges shall be treated as If their registration dates were concurrent with enrollment at this university. 



44 General Education Programs 



CORE Program Components: 



1. FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES build competence and confidence in basic writing and mathematics. IVIastery of these basics enhances success both during and 
after college. Students begin fulfilling Fundamental Studies requirements in their first year at the University. 

2. DISTRIBUTIVE STUDIES focus on breadth, including courses in the following categories: Literature; The History or Theory of the Arts; Humanities; Physical 
Sciences; Life Sciences; Mathematics and Formal Reasoning; Social or Political History; Behavioral and Social Sciences; and Interdisciplinary and 
Emerging Issues. Students generally pursue Distributive Studies in the first two years of their course work. 

3. ADVANCED STUDIES allow students to enhance their degree and strengthen their critical thinking and writing skills by taking two upper-level courses 
outside their major after 60 credits. Students may substitute an approved CORE Capstone course in their major or a senior or honors thesis for one of 
these two courses. 



HUMAN CULTURAL DIVERSITY gives students the opportunity to examine their ideas and values in the light of various cultural, intellectual, and social 
contexts. Diversity courses increase knowledge of what constitutes difference and increase students' ability to learn from and appreciate people, cultures, 
ideas, and art forms that are often different from those they know best. Students may complete the Cultural Diversity requirement at any time before 
graduation. 



CORE Program Outline 



IMPORTANT NOTES about Fundamental and Distributive Studies courses: 

• MUST be selected from the approved CORE course lists to count toward CORE requirements. 

• MAY also be used to satisfy college, major, and/or supporting area requirements if the courses also appear on CORE Fundamental or Distributive Studies lists. 

• CORE courses MAY NOT be taken on a Pass-Fail basis.

• The third course in the Humanities and the Arts category (one HL and 
one HA must be taken) OR 

• The third course in the Sciences and Mathematics category (two 
science courses chosen from PL, PS, LL, or LS lists including at least 
one course from the LL or PL lists must be taken) OR

See the CORE website a1 



www.ugst.umd.edu/core 



for details on how to use 



the IE option and for the list or courses (added as approved) 



The online Schedule of Classes for fall 2006 at www.testudo.umd.edu/ 
|ScheduleOfClasses.html| will include approved IE courses. 

IIVIPORTANT NOTES ON THE IE OPTION 

• IE is an optional CORE distributive studies category; Students may 
fulfill CORE requirements without taking an IE course. 

• Only one IE course may be counted toward fulfilling CORE Distributive 
Studies requirements. 

• Whether a student takes an IE course or not, total CORE Distributive 
Studies course and credit requirements remain the same: at least 9 
courses and 28 credits. 



CORE Advanced Studies 



Two Courses (6 credits) Required 

Students may choose their two Advanced Studies courses from a wide range 
of upper-level offerings outside their majors. Good choices include courses 
that mesh with or expand educational goals or other interests, increase 
knowledge, and strengthen critical thinking and writing skills. 

CORE Advanced Studies Requirement: Two upper-level (300- or 400-level) 
courses outside the major taken after 60 credits. Students may substitute a 
CORE-approved senior capstone course in their major or a senior or honors 
thesis for one of the two required Advanced Studies courses. Enrollment in C 
ORE Capstone courses will be subject to departmental guidelines. The other 
course must be outside the major. Students completing double majors or 
double degrees will have fulfilled the campus Advanced Studies requirement, 
unless their primary major or college has additional requirements. The 
student's academic college determines whether or not a course is "outside 
the major" for the purpose of fulfilling CORE Advanced Studies. 



The following may NOT be used to fulfill Advanced Studies requirements: 

• Professional Writing courses (courses that meet the Fundamental 
Studies upper-level writing requirement); 

• courses used to meet Distributive Studies requirements; 

• internships, practica, or other experiential learning types of courses; 

• courses taken on a pass/fail basis. 

One independent studies course (minimum of three credits, outside the 
major) may be used toward Advanced Studies requirements as long as it is 
consistent with the rules above and the faculty member supervising the 
Independent study agrees that It is appropriate for Advanced Studies. 

Notes: CORE Capstone courses must be taken within the major. A senior 
thesis (minimum of 3 credits) or successful completion and defense of an 
honors thesis in either the General Honors or a Departmental Honors 
Program (minimum of 3 credits) counts as CORE Capstone credit. 



IV. CORE Human Cultural Diversity 



One Course (3 credits) Required 

See the most current li stings of approved CORE courses at 
www.ugst.umd.edu/core"] or the online Schedule of Classes at 
www.testudo.uma.edu/scneauieotuiasses.ntml~l 



Cultural Diversity courses focus primarily on: (a) the history, status, 
treatment, or accomplishment of women or minority groups and subcultures; 
(b) non-Western culture, or (c) concepts and Implications of diversity. 

Note: A number of CORE Human Cultural Diversity courses also satisfy 
CORE Distributive Studies, Advanced Studies, or a college, major, and/or 
supporting area requirement. 

Study Abroad and Satisfying Core Requirements 

Students may use study abroad to earn credit toward University of Maryland 
CORE Distributive and/or Advanced Studies requirements. All students 
considering study abroad must meet with a Study Abroad Advisor and 
complete the Permission to Study Abroad form (available at the Study Abroad 
Office). The Study Abroad Office determines If the course work will be 
completed through an accredited academic program and be eligible for 
transfer credit. Upon approval, the number of credits will be determined for 
each course. How the courses will apply to a student's graduation 
requirements will be determined by the student's advising college. CORE 
Distributive Studies equivalencies (If applicable) must be shown clearly on 
the Study Abroad form with approvals from the UM academic departments 
which offer similar courses. CORE Advanced Studies criteria also apply to 
Study Abroad courses students wish to count toward CORE Advanced 
Studies. Some college/departmental guidelines and restrictions may apply. 

Participation in a study abroad program with the successful completion and 
transfer of at least 9 credits abroad automatically waives a student's CORE 
Human Cultural Diversity requirement.

The Colleges and Schools 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND 
NATURAL RESOURCES 

0107 Symons Hall, 301-405-7761 
E-mail: eweiss@deans.umd.edu 



www.agnr.umd.edu 



Dean: Cheng-i Wei 

Associate Dean: Leon H. Slaughter 

Assistant Dean: John A. Doerr 

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources offers a variety of 
academic programs that apply science, management, design, and 
engineering to improve the world in which we live and work. Feeding the 
world population, developing scientifically-based land use practices and 
policies, understanding animal and plant biology, improving nutrition and its 
effects on human health, and profitably managing farms and 
agribusinesses in harmony with ecosystems are all vital concerns of the 
College. Integrating the use and protection of natural resources in the 
production of food and nursery crops is a challenge facing students. 

Each student in the College is assigned a faculty advisor to assist in selecting 
courses to meet the individual needs of our diverse student body. In addition 
to course work, undergraduates have opportunities to work closely with faculty 
in state-of-the-art facilities including new biological resources engineering, 
animal sciences, veterinary medicine, and plant sciences buildings. The 
College also serves as the academic home of the Maryland Campus of the 
Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. Nearby resources 
such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Beltsville Agricultural National 
Research Center, the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug 
Administration, the Smithsonian Institution and the National Zoo, Maryland's 
Departments of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and the Patuxent Wildlife 
Research Center enhance teaching, research, internship, and career 
opportunities for students. Field study courses offered in Brazil, Belize, Egypt, 
England, and Costa Rica, and study-abroad programs such as those in Russia 
and Angers, France expose students to other cultures and environments. 
Learning opportunities are also strengthened through student involvement in 
such co-curricular activities as the College Honors Program, career programs, 
leadership workshops, and student clubs. 

Graduates are employed in a variety of professions as dieticians, food 
scientists, landscape architects, engineers, natural resource managers, 
environmental consultants, land use planners, agribusiness managers, 
stock and commodity brokers, or lawyers specializing in environmental 
issues. Others work at government and industry research laboratories, 
biotechnology and biomedical firms, and in hospitals, fish and wildlife 
programs, the Peace Corps, public health departments, and large food- 
production operations. Many graduates pursue advanced degrees in 
veterinary medicine, law, medicine, physical therapy, or graduate school. 

Departments in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources offer the 
following programs of study: 

Agricultural and Resource Economics — Business Management; 
Agricultural Science; Environmental and Resource Policy; Food Production; 
International Agriculture; and Political Process. 

Animal Sciences — Animal Care and Management; Equine Studies; 
Laboratory Animal Care; Science/Preprofessional; and Animal Biotechnology 



Biological Resources Engineering — Water Resources; Bioenvironmental

Natural Resources IVIanagement — Environmental Education/Park 
Management; Land and Water Resource Management; and Plant and 
Wildlife Resource Management. 

Nutrition and Food Science — Dietetics; Food Science; and Nutritional Science. 

Advantage of Location and Facilities 

Educational opportunities in the College of Agriculture and Natural 
Resources are enhanced by the proximity of several research units of the 
federal government. Teaching and research activities in the College are 
conducted with the cooperation of scientists and professional people in 
government positions. Of particular interest are the National Agricultural 
Research Center at Beltsville, the National Agricultural Library, the National

52 School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation 



The School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation offers a four-year 
undergraduate program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in 
architecture, and a graduate program leading to the professional degree of 
Master of Architecture. The undergraduate major in architecture is designed 
to minimize the time required to complete the curriculum leading to the 
professional degree. 

Students receive rigorous and comprehensive instruction from a faculty 
whose members are active in professional practice or research. Many faculty 
members have distinguished themselves across the professional spectrum 
and represent different approaches to architectural design. Their individual 
areas of expertise include architectural design and theory, history, 
architectural archaeology, technology, urban design and planning, and 
historic preservation. Visiting critics, lecturers, and the Kea Distinguished 
Professor augment the faculty; together they provide students with the 
requisite exposure to contemporary realities of architectural design. 

The B.S. degree in architecture will qualify graduates to pursue a career in 
any of a number of fields, such as construction, real estate development, 
public administration, or historic preservation, or to continue in graduate 
work in professional fields such as architecture, urban planning, historic 
preservation, landscape architecture, or law.

The College of Arts and Humanities embraces a heterogeneous group of 
disciplines, all of which value the development of critical thinking, fluent 
expression in writing and speech, sensitivity to ethical and aesthetic 
standards, and a complex understanding of history and culture. 
Departments and programs in Arts and Humanities, while they have strong 
individual identities, are also involved in interdisciplinary studies. Thus 
students will find, for example, courses in the Department of English that 
approach literature from political perspectives, courses in the Department of 
History that rely on feminist perspectives, courses in the Department of Art 
History and Archaeology that study African cultures, and so on. 

Further examples of the special opportunities available to students in this 
richly variegated college include an exceptional slide library in Art History and 
Archaeology, the English Department's computer-based writing laboratory, 
an ATcSiT Foreign Language Classroom, a junior-year-abroad program in Nice, 
France, a year-abroad program in Sheffield, England, and Honors programs 
in most departments. In addition, the education vistas open to students in 
Dance, Music, and Theatre have been enhanced enormously by the recent 
opening of the Clarice Smith Center for the Performing Arts, which now 
houses those three departments. 



Students wishing to major in one of the creative or performing arts are 
encouraged to seek training in the skills associated with such an area prior 
to matriculation. Students applying for entrance to these programs may be 
required to audition, present slides, or submit a portfolio as a part of the 
admission requirements. 



Graduation Requirements 



The following College requirements apply only to students earning Bachelor 
of Arts degrees from the College of Arts and Humanities. These 
requirements are in addition to or in fulfillment of campus and 
departmental requirements. For information concerning the Bachelor of

Major Requirements 



All students must complete a program of study consisting of a major (a 
field of concentration) and usually supporting courses as specified by one 
of the academic units of the College. No program of study shall require in 
excess of 60 semester hours. Students should consult the unit in which 
they will major for specific details; certain units have mandatory advising. 

A major shall consist, in addition to the lower-division departmental 
prerequisites, of 24 to 40 hours, at least 12 of which must be in courses 
numbered 300 or 400 and at least 12 of which must be taken at the 
University of Maryland, College Park. 

A major program usually requires a secondary field of concentration 
(supporting courses). The nature and number of these courses are 
determined by the major department. 

No grade lower than C may be used to fulfill major or supporting course 
requirements. No course for the major or support module may be taken 
Pass-Fail.

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is comprised of a diverse 
group of disciplines and fields of study all of which emphasize a broad 
liberal arts education as the foundation for understanding the 
environmental, social, and cultural forces that shape our world. At the heart 
of the behavioral and social sciences is the attempt to understand human 
beings, both individually and in groups. Disciplines in the behavioral and 
social sciences use approaches that range from the scientific to the 
philosophical, from the experimental to the theoretical. Integral to all the 
disciplines, however, is the development and application of problem solving 
skills, which in combination with other academic skills, enable students to 
think analytically and to communicate clearly and persuasively. Students 
interested in human behavior and in solving human and social problems 
will find many exciting opportunities through the programs and courses 
offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. 

The College is composed of the following departments, each offering a 
major program that leads to the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science 
degree, as appropriate:

Appeals to tliis Policy 

Appeals to this policy may be filed with the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions, on the ground floor Mitchell Building. Such appeals will require 
documentation of unusual, extenuating, or special circumstances. 

Statement of Policy on Transfer of Credit from 
Community Colleges 

It is the practice of the Smith School of Business to consider for transfer 
from a regionally accredited community college only the following courses in 
business administration: an introductory business course, business 
statistics, introduction to computing (equivalent to BMGT 201), or 
elementary accounting. Thus, it is anticipated that students transferring 
from another regionally accredited institution will have devoted the major 
share of their academic effort below the junior year to the completion of 
basic requirements in the liberal arts. A total of 60 semester hours from a 
community college may be applied toward a degree from the Smith School 
of Business. 

other Institutions 

The Smith School of Business normally accepts transfer credits from 
regionally accredited four-year institutions. Junior- and senior-level business 
courses are accepted from colleges accredited by the Association to 
Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Junior- and senior- level 
business courses from other than AACSB-accredited schools are evaluated 
on a course-by-course basis to determine transferability. 

The Smith School of Business requires that at least 50 percent of the 
business and management credit hours required for a business degree be 
earned at the University of Maryland, College Park. 



Summary of Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements 
(all curricula) 

At least 45 hours of the 120 semester hours of academic work required for 
graduation must be in business and management subjects. A minimum of 
58 hours of the required 120 hours must be in 300- or 400-level courses. 
In addition to the requirement of an overall cumulative grade point average 
of 2.0 (C average) in all university course work. Effective Fall 1989, all 
business majors must earn a 2.0 or better in all required courses, including 
Economics, Mathematics, and Communication. Electives outside the 
curricula of the School may be taken in any department of the university, if 
the student has the necessary prerequisites.

The goal of marketing is to satisfy all the stakeholders of the firm — 
employees, dealers, stockholders, and customers — by seeing that quality 
goods and services are developed and provided at fair prices and in a way 
that benefits the community and society. World-class competition has 
forced businesses to develop marketing programs that are as good as the 
best. This means getting closer to the customer, joining other organizations 
to create value for the consumer, and designing integrated distribution and 
communication programs that provide a seamless flow from producers to 
consumers. Pricing, communication/promotion, product/service, and 
distribution activities inherent in the development of marketing programs 
are applicable to non-profit organizations, business-to-business 
organizations, and firms that sell to ultimate consumers. 

Many types of careers are available to the marketing major. These include, 
but are not limited to: sales, advertising, retailing, product/service 
management, and marketing research. Because of the many different 
employment opportunities in marketing, many marketing electives are 
offered along with three core courses required of all marketing majors — 
consumer analysis, marketing research, and marketing strategy.

Logistics, Transportation, and Suppiy Ciiain Management 

The supply chain encompasses all organizations involved in production of a 
good or service and its ultimate delivery to the end customer. Supply chain 
managers oversee many varied but inter-related processes including the 
flow of materials, information, and transactions (to name a few). Logistics 
deals primarily with the materials flow component of the supply chain, and 
logistics managers are responsible for fulfilling customer orders while 
simultaneously controlling distribution costs. 

While transportation is the heart of logistics; inventory control, warehousing, 
order processing, materials handling, packaging, and customer service are 
important logistics activities. These logistics activities comprise up to 30 
percent of total costs for many businesses. The cost of freight transportation 
alone is about 8 percent of the nation's annual domestic product.

Internships are valuable. Research is fascinating. Students can experience 
scientific discovery first hand. Knowledge learned in class is used and 
applied. Students learn the scientific method in a real experimental setting, 
and see how new scientific knowledge is created. Be a part of the science 
discovery in CMPS, which places the college among the top 15 public and 
private universities nationwide. A research experience provides a first hand 
route into professional problem-solving and may lead to publication. It gives 
students personal contact with faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate 
students, and a real picture of graduate school. Employers and graduate 
schools look for research experience in applicants.

ESSIC is a joint center between the Departments of Atmospheric and Oceanic 
Sciences, Geology, and Geography together with the Earth Sciences 
Directorate at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The goal of the Center 
is to enhance our understanding of how the atmosphere-ocean-land-biosphere 
components of the Earth interact as a coupled system. This is accomplished 
via studies of the interaction between the physical climate system (e.g.. El 
Nino) and biogeochemical cycles (e.g., greenhouse gases, changes in land 
use and cover). The major research thrusts of the Center are studies of 
Climate Variability and Change, Atmospheric Composition and Processes, 
and the Global Carbon Cycle (including Terrestrial and Marine 
Ecosystems/ Land Use/Cover Change). The manner in which this research is 
accomplished is via analyses of in situ and remotely sensed observations 
together with component and coupled ocean-atmosphere-land models. 
Together this provides a foundation for understanding and forecasting 
changes in the global environment and assessing regional implications. Data 
assimilation and regional downscaling provide the means by which the 
observations and models are linked to study the interactions between the 
physical climate system and biogeochemical cycles from global to regional 
scales. Courses and research guidance by Center faculty are provided 
through the Departments of Geography, Geology and Atmospheric and 
Oceanic Sciences, or under the auspices of College interdisciplinary listings.

Dean: Edna Szymanski 

The College of Education is a professional college committed to advancing 
the science and art of teaching/learning, including the practices and 
processes which occur from infancy through adulthood in both school and 
non-school settings. The College's mission is to provide preparation for 
current and future teachers, counselors, administrators, educational 
specialists, and other related educational personnel, and to create and 
disseminate the knowledge needed by professionals and policy makers in 
education and related fields. 

The College is organized into six departments, three of which offer 
undergraduate majors in teacher education: the Department of Curriculum 
and Instruction, which offers elementary and secondary education 
programs; the Department of Human Development and Institute for Child 
Study, which offers an early childhood program; and the Department of 
Special Education. Enrollment in the professional teacher education 
programs in the three departments is limited to those who meet the 
selective admission requirements specified below. 

Only students who have been fully admitted to the teacher education 
programs are permitted to enroll in the professional education course 
sequences. Students with other majors who have an interest in the area of 
education may wish to enroll in a variety of other courses offered by the 
College that deal with schooling, human development, teaching/learning 
styles, and interaction processes. Students with majors in the Arts and 
Sciences who have an interest in teaching may wish to consider one of the 
multiple options for secondary education listed below. 

In carrying out its mission, the College is committed to a society which 
is open to and supportive of the educational aspirations of the widest 
population of learners, and to continuous research and evaluation in 
relation to teaching and learning in a multicultural, high-tech world. At 
times, students may be invited to participate actively with graduate 
students and faculty members in research undertakings and evaluation 
processes. Students make use of Educational Technology Services, the 
micro-teaching laboratory, and professional development in school 
settings. 

In addition to the CORE program requirements, education majors have the 
opportunity to complete classes in the arts, sciences and/or humanities. In 
the teacher education courses, students develop professional skills 
through active experiences in the college classroom and participate in 
exploring, learning and practicing with children and teachers in classrooms 
in the community. 

Secondary Education Program Options 

The College of Education has multiple pathways for students who are 
interested in teaching at the secondary level. 

The Dual Major option, which is designed for incoming freshmen or 
sophomores, leads to the Bachelor's degree with a major in an academic 
content area plus a second major in secondary education. All secondary 
majors are required to have an academic content major which satisfies the 



requirements of the academic department and meets the standards for 
teacher certification. Candidates who follow the proposed sequencing of 
courses can complete both majors in four years with careful advisement 
and scheduling. 

The Minor in Secondary Education provides opportunities for 
undergraduate subject area majors to enroll in a sequence of education 
courses that helps them to determine if teaching is a viable career option 
for them. The 15-18 credit minor may be taken prior to admission into a 
teacher preparation program. If an undergraduate student pursuing or 
completing the minor desires to enter an education track, the candidate 
must apply for the dual major program to obtain certification as a 
secondary education classroom teacher through completion of a Maryland 
State Department of Education approved program option. Some of the 
courses students take to complete the Minor in Secondary Education may 
also be applicable in certification options at the graduate level offered 
through the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. These students 
should consult with an advisor in the Department of Curriculum and 
Instruction to identify the most appropriate option leading to teacher 
certification and to review the specific admission requirements associated 
with these programs. 

The Certificate Program requires completion of an academic major, including 
coursework specific to meet certification standards in the certificate area, 
and a bachelor's degree in an approved academic content area, plus the 
completion of a certificate program in secondary education to meet 
requirements in UM's approved program for MSDE certification. Selected 
coursework from the Minor in Secondary Education may be taken prior to 
admission to the Certificate Program option. 

The Five-Year Integrated Master's witli Certification Program, which is 
intended for content majors entering the junior or senior year, is for 
talented students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 who seek to combine 
undergraduate studies in the content area and professional education as 
a foundation for a focused professional year at the graduate level 
leading to secondary-level certification in the subject field and the 
Master's of Education degree. As undergraduates, admitted students 
complete their baccalaureate degrees with a major in the relevant 
content area and a minimum of 12 credits in professional education 
studies related to teacher certification requirements. In their fifth year, 
they enroll in a full-year internship and complete graduate-level 
professional studies that make them eligible for teacher certification and 
the master's of education degree.

Admission to Teacher Education Professional 
Course Work 

Applicants to the University of Maryland who have declared an interest in 
education are admitted to a department in the College. All majors must 
meet the selective admission requirements for full admission into the 
College of Education in order to enroll in course work in the professional 
teacher education degree program. 

For full admission into a teacher education major, a student must (1) 
complete the English and math lower-level fundamental studies (six credits) 
with a grade of C or better; (2) earn 45 semester hours with an overall 
cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale; (3) submit a 
personal goal statement that indicates an appropriate commitment to 
professional education; (4) have prior experiences in the education field; 
(5) submit three letters of recommendation/reference; (6) submit a signed 
copy of the College of Education Technical Standards Acknowledgement 
Form, and (7) have passing scores on the Praxis I. Admission application 
forms are available in Room 1204 of the Benjamin Building. Only those 
who are admitted are able to enroll in the professional education 
sequence. An overall grade point average of 2.5 must be maintained after 
admission to Teacher Education to continue in the professional education 
programs. A Teacher Education Appeals Board reviews appeals from 
students who do not meet the admissions, advancement, or retention 
criteria. Consult the Student Services Office (Room 1204, Benjamin) for 
policies and procedures regarding appeals. 

Criteria for admission to the Teacher Education program apply to any 
teacher preparation program offered by the University of Maryland. Thus, 
students desiring a major in music or physical education should apply to 
the College of Education for admission to the professional program in 
Teacher Education. Students who are not enrolled in the College of 
Education but who, through an established cooperative program with 
another college, are preparing to teach must meet all admission.

professional education courses are restricted to degree-seeking majors 
who have met College of Education requirements for admission and 
retention. 

Gateway Requirements for Early Childhood 
and Elementary Education Programs 

The Early Childhood and Elementary Education programs are Limited 
Enrollment Programs, which admit students on a space-available basis. In 
addition to the requirements for admission to teacher education that are 
listed above, early childhood and elementary education majors must meet 
the following gateway requirements: 

(1) completion of a four-credit CORE laboratory physical science, a four- 
credit CORE laboratory biological science, Elements of Numbers and 
Operations (MATH 212), and Elements of Geometry and Measurement 
(MATH 213) with a minimum cumulative GPA in these four courses of 
2.7 

(2) completion of Introduction to Teaching (EDCI 280) or Exploring Teaching 
in Early Childhood (EDHD220) with a grade of B or better 

(3) passing scores on the Praxis I: Academic Skills Assessments (Students 
will be required to meet the individual cut-off scores for each of the 
three Praxis I assessments. A composite score will not be accepted for 
admission.) 

Students admitted to the University as freshmen may be directly admitted 
to the Early Childhood or Elementary Education programs through the end 
of the schedule adjustment period, second semester, freshman year. It is 
anticipated that no more than 50% of the available places in each program 
will come from these groups. In the event that the number of qualified 
applicants exceeds the available program slots, the students with the most 
competitive records from high school will gain direct admission to the 
College of Education. Students who are admitted to campus, but not 
directly admitted to Education, will be advised in the Division of Letters and 
Sciences. 

At the time of admission, each student directly admitted into the College of 
Education will enter into a contract that states the requirements for 
maintaining enrollment, including the time or credit level by which the 
gateway requirements must be completed. 

All other prospective early childhood and elementary education majors may 
apply for admission during the Spring of the year in which they complete 60 
credits including the coursework and gateway admission criteria listed 
above. Students with advanced credit (60 or more hours) may apply for 
admission when they meet the gateway requirements. Applications will be 
reviewed in the Spring, and students who have completed the gateway 
requirements will be admitted competitively based on GPA, on a space- 
available basis. The minimum admission GPA for internal and external 
transfers will be 3.0 for Elementary Education and 2.75 for Early Childhood. 
Students with the required gateway courses and lower grade point averages 
will be considered as space is available. 

Students may be granted admission to the early childhood or elementary 
education limited enrollment programs only once. Therefore, once a 
student has been admitted to the limited enrollment program, if the 
student is later dismissed for failure to complete the gateway requirements 
in a timely manner, the student may not reapply to the program. 

Detailed information regarding admission to the Teacher Education 
program, including the gateway requirements for Early Childhood or 
Elementary Education, is available in the Student Services Office, Room 
1204 Benjamin (301-405-2344). 

College of Education Technical Standards 

All candidates in the DM professional preparation programs are expected to 
demonstrate that they are prepared to work with children and youth in 
educational settings. This preparation results from the combination of 
successful completion of university coursework and field/internship 
experiences and the demonstration of important human characteristics and 
dispositions that all educators should possess. These characteristics and 
dispositions, the College of Education Technical Standards, are grouped 
into four categories: Communication/Interpersonal Skills, Emotional and 
Physical Abilities, Cognitive Dispositions, and Personal and Professional 
Requirements. 



Technical standards serve several important functions, including, but not 
limited to: (a) providing information to those considering preK-12 and 
community professional careers that will help such students in their career 
decision-making; (b) advising applicants of non-academic criteria 
considered in admissions decisions made by the University's preK-12 and 
community professional preparation programs; (c) serving as the basis for 
feedback provided to students in these programs regarding their progress 
toward mastery of all program objectives; and (d) serving as the basis for 
the final assessment of attainment of graduation requirements and 
recommendation for certification. 

Candidates in the undergraduate teacher preparation programs will be 
required to submit a College of Education Technical Standards 
Acknowledgement Form as part of the College's selective admissions 
review in the sophomore or junior year. Self-assessments of candidates 
and faculty evaluations of students on the technical standards also will 
occur during each field/internship experience. Students will be monitored 
and given feedback throughout the program. At specified points, students 
will be notified of inadequacies that may prevent them from progressing 
through their program. Documentation and consensus regarding the 
student's functioning will be sought before any action is taken. 
Candidates who experience deficiencies in any areas will be encouraged 
to seek appropriate professional help from university or other sources. If 
the problem seems to be beyond remediation, continuation in 
professional programs, graduation or recommendation for certification 
may be denied. 

Technical standards may be met with, or without, accommodations. The 
University complies with the requirements of Section 504 of the 
Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. 
Therefore, the College of Education will endeavor to make reasonable 
accommodations with respect to its technical standards for an applicant 
with a disability who is otherwise qualified. For detailed information on the 
College of Education Technical Standards. seelwww.education.umd.edu/| 
studentinfo/teacher_certification/forms/technicalstndrdsporcy.doc 



Yearlong Internship (Student Teaching) 

The yearlong internship, which is the culminating experience in the teacher 
preparation program, takes place in a collaborating school (i.e., partner school, 
PDS - Professional Development School). The yearlong internship consists of 
one semester of methods and one semester of student teaching. Each teacher 
candidate's internship will vary according to the unique attributes of their 
teacher education program. All internships will provide teacher candidates with 
the opportunity to integrate theory and practice through a comprehensive, 
reality-based experience. The yearlong internship is arranged through the 
College of Education in collaboration with the school site coordinators (i.e., PDS 
Coordinators) and the designated schools in the partnership. 

The yearlong internship is a full-time commitment. Interference with this 
responsibility because of employment or course work is strongly 
discouraged. Teacher candidates assigned to schools for this internship 
are responsible for their own transportation and living arrangements and 
should be prepared to travel to whichever school has been assigned. 
Student teaching requires a speciai fee. Piease refer to tlie Sclieduie of 
Ciasses under Financiai information: Fees. 

In order to receive a yearlong internship placement, all teacher candidates 
must make application the semester prior to the beginning of the methods 
portion of the internship year. Prospective student teachers must have 
been admitted to Teacher Education and have completed all prerequisites. 
Prior to assignment, all students in teacher preparation programs must 
have: (1) maintained an overall grade point average of at least 2.5 with a 
minimum grade of "C" in every course required for the major; (2) 
satisfactorily completed all other required course work in their program; 
(3) received a favorable recommendation from their department; (4) 
attained qualifying scores for the State of Maryland on the Praxis I and 
Praxis II assessments; (5) applied for a year-long internship placement 
through the College of Education during the semester prior to the 
internship year; (6) received favorable ratings from prior supervised 
experiences in school settings; (7) received favorable evaluations on the 
College of Education Technical Standards; and submitted a criminal 
history disclosure statement. In addition, state law gives the local school 
to which the student teacher is assigned the discretion to require a 
criminal background check prior to placement. Early Childhood Education 
students must have a certificate indicating freedom from tuberculosis and 
proof of immunization. 



College of Education 67 



College of Education Repeat Policy 

All registrations in the student teaching portion of the year long internship, 
regardless of whether a student withdraws or tal<es a leave of absence, will 
be counted as an attempt under the campus repeat policy. Only two 
registrations will be allowed. After two registrations, further attempts at 
student teaching must be approved by the department and the school- 
system professionals involved in the teacher candidate's internship 
experience. This policy applies only to students in the College of Education 
during the student teaching portion of the year-long internship. 

Graduation Requirements 

The College of Education confers the degrees of Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or 
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) depending on the amount of liberal arts study 
included in a particular degree program. Minimum requirements for 
graduation are 120 semester hours. Specific departmental program 
requirements for more than the minimum must be fulfilled. 

In addition to the university's general education requirements (CORE) 
and the specific requirements for each curriculum, the College requires that 
all majors complete a Foundation of Education course (e.g., EDPL 301) 
and, depending upon the teacher education major, six to twelve semester 
hours of reading course requirements. A grade of C or better is required in 
all pre-professional and professional course work required for the major. An 
overall grade point average of 2.5 must be maintained after admission to 
Teacher Education. A grade of S is required in the student teaching portion 
of the yearlong internship. All teacher candidates are required to obtain 
satisfactory evaluations on the College of Education Technical standards 
and attain qualifying scores for the State of Maryland on the Praxis I and 
Praxis II assessments. Detailed information about the Praxis assessments 
is available in the Student Services Office, Room 1204 Benjamin. 

Exceptions to curricular requirements and rules of the College of Education 
must be recommended by the student's advisor and department 
chairperson and approved by the Dean. 

Accreditation and Certification 

All bachelor's-degree teacher preparation programs are accredited by the 
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and have been 
approved by the Division of Certification and Accreditation of the Maryland 
State Department of Education. Accreditation provides for reciprocal 
certification with other states that recognize national accreditation. 

The Maryland State Department of Education issues certificates to teach in 
the public schools of the state. In addition to graduation from an approved 
program, the Maryland State Department of Education requires satisfactory 
scores on the Praxis I and II exams for certification. At the time of 
graduation, the College informs the Maryland State Department of 
Education of the graduate's eligibility for certification. Under Maryland law, 
criminal background checks may be required and considered by the State 
Department of Education in the awarding of teaching certification, and by 
employers before granting employment in the teaching field. Certification 
may be denied or revoked for individuals who have been convicted of 
crimes of violence and/or child abuse. 

The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) requires completion of 
additional courses in reading. Students in secondary, pre-K-12 (Art, Music 
and Physical Education), and secondary special education must complete a 
six credit sequence. Students in early childhood, elementary and early grades 
special education must complete a twelve credit sequence. Check with your 
department advisor for information on meeting these requirements.

The mission of the Clarl< School of Engineering at the University of 
Maryland is to provide quality engineering education, to conduct strong 
research programs, to foster a close partnership with industry and 
government, and to provide related service to the campus community and 
the community at large. A major focus of the School's activities is to 
provide a quality engineering education with sufficient scope to include the 
basic and specialized engineering training necessary to the current and 
emerging needs of society. The School has related responsibility to 
contribute to the advancement of knowledge by conducting research at the 
cutting edge of science and technology. Since science and technology are 
rapidly advancing, the School also has a professional responsibility to 
provide continuing education programs so the practicing engineer can 
remain effective. The School faculty and administration also sees as part of 
its mission, an obligation to serve the needs of the campus community and 
the community at large in the spirit of collegial cooperation. 

Engineers also occupy an intermediary position between scientists and the 
public because, in addition to understanding scientific principles, they are 
concerned with the timing, economics, and values that define the use and 
application of those principles. With this in mind the School fosters a close 
partnership with industry and government, and also reaches out to both the 
campus community and the community at large with its services. 

Direct Admissions Requirements 

1. Admission to the Clark School of Engineering is limited. Applicants are 
reviewed and will be admitted directly on a competitive basis. 
Evaluation is based on high school grades, standardized test scores, 
activities, leadership and demonstrations of potential to succeed. An 
applicant may select any of the majors offered within the School. An 
applicant also has the option of entering as an Undecided Engineering 
major and will typically choose a degree program in the first year. 

2. National Merit and National Achievement Finalists and Semifinalists, 
Maryland Distinguished Scholar Finalists, and Banneker/Key 
Scholars are admitted directly to the School.

45-Credit Review 

Directly admitted freshmen will be subject to an academic review at the end 
of the semester in which they attain 45 University of Maryland credits. In 
order to successfully complete the review, students must have an overall 
GPA of 2.0 and have completed ENES 100 and the following sequence of 
Gateway requirements: MATH 141, PHYS 161, and CHEM 113 or CHEM 
135 with a grade of 2.0 or better. 

Only one repeat of a single course to the set of Gateway courses, either at the 
University of Maryland or at any other university or college, will be considered 
to meet the review requirements. A course in which a grade of "W" (withdrawn) 
is earned is counted as an attempt. Students who fail to meet these 
requirements by the semester in which they attain 45 University of Maryland 
credits may be dismissed from the Clark School and may not reapply. 

Transfer Admission 

Direct Admissions Requirements 

Internal and External Transfer students will be directly admitted to the Clark 
School if they meet the Gateway requirements, MATH 141, PHYS 161, CHEM 
113 or CHEM 135 with a grade of 2.0 or better, have completed Fundamental 
Studies English, have completed at least one Humanities or Social Studies 
course, and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, and who have not 
previously been admitted to the Clark School of Engineering. Only one repeat 
of a single course to the set of Gateway courses, either at the University of 
Maryland or at any other university or college, will be considered to meet the 
review requirements. A course in which a grade of "W" (withdrawn) is earned 
is counted as an attempt. Students may apply on or before the semester in 
which they attain 45 earned credits. 

Internal and External Transfer students who do not meet the Direct 
Admissions Requirements but have completed the Gateway requirements 
may apply and be considered for admission on a competitive basis. 

Appeal Process 

All students may appeal. Students directly admitted as freshmen who are 
dismissed because of failure to meet Gateways or to be in good academic 
standing at 45 credits may appeal in writing directly to the Associate Dean 
for Education in the Clark School. All other students who are denied 
admission may appeal to the Office of Admissions of the University. 

Special Note 

students with a previous B.A. or B.S. degree will be admitted to the Clark 
School of Engineering with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a completion of 
MATH 140, MATH 141, CHEM 113 or CHEM 135, and PHYS 161 with a 
grade of 2.0 or higher in each. 



Graduation Requirements 



structure of Engineering Curricula: Courses in the normal curriculum or 
program and prescribed credit hours leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections 
describing each department in the Clark School of Engineering. No student 
may modify the prescribed number of hours without special permission 
from the Dean of the School. The courses in each curriculum may be 
classified in the following categories: 

1. Courses in the CORE Liberal Arts and Science Studies Program. 

2. Courses in the physical sciences, mathematics, chemistry, physics. 

3. Related technical courses, engineering sciences and other courses 
approved for one curriculum but offered by another department. 

4. Courses in the major department. A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution of courses from the department chair and 
the Dean of the School. The courses in each engineering curriculum, 
as classified below, form a sequential and developmental pattern in 
subject matter. In this respect, curricula in engineering may differ from 
curricula in other colleges. Some regulations which are generally 
applicable to all students may need clarification for purposes of orderly 
administration among engineering students (see the Academic 
Regulations in chapter 4). Moreover, the Clark School of Engineering 
establishes policies which supplement university regulations. 



School Regulations 

1. The responsibility for proper registration and for satisfying stated 
prerequisites for any course must rest with the student as does the 
responsibility for proper achievement in courses in which the student 
is enrolled. Each student should be familiar with the provisions of 
this catalog, including the Academic Regulations. 

2. Required courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry have 
highest priority. It is strongly recommended that every engineering 
student register for mathematics and chemistry or mathematics and 
physics each semester until the student has fully satisfied 
requirements of the Clark School of Engineering in these subjects. 

3. To be eligible for a bachelor's degree in the Clark School of 
Engineering, a student must have an overall average of at least a 
2.0 and a grade of C (2.0) or better in all engineering courses 
(courses with an EN prefix). Responsibility for knowing and meeting 
all graduation requirements in any curriculum rests with the student. 

4. In addition to the requirement for a C (2.0) or better in all EN courses, 
all students who begin college-level work, either at the University of 
Maryland or any other institution in the Spring 2005 semester or later, 
must receive a grade of C (2.0) or higher in all technical courses (e.g. 
mathematics, physics, etc) used to satisfy major requirements. 

5. A course taken at UM in which a grade has been earned may not be 
repeated via transfer from another institution. 

6. All students are required to complete a number of general education 
courses and must follow the university's requirements regarding 
completion of the general education (CORE) Program. Consult the 
Academic Regulations section of this catalog for additional information. 
Engineering students who began college-level work (either at the 
University of Maryland or at other institutions) during the Fall 1989 
semester or later are required to complete a junior- level technical 
writing course regardless of their performance in freshman English 
classes. This represents a School policy, not a University-wide policy. 

7. All degree programs in the Clark School of Engineering require a 
minimum of 120 credits plus satisfaction of all department. School, 
and University general education (CORE) program requirements. 
Students should be aware that for all currently existing engineering 
programs the total number of credits necessary for the degree 
exceeds 120 by some number that depends on the specific major. 

Curricula for the various engineering departments are given in this catalog 
to illustrate how the programs can be completed in four years. These 
curricula are rigorous and relatively difficult. Surveys have shown that only 
about one-third to one-half of the students actually receive an engineering 
degree in four years. The majority of students (whether at Maryland or at 
other engineering schools nationwide) complete the engineering program in 
four and one-half to five years. It is quite feasible for a student to stretch 
out any curriculum; this may be necessary or desirable for a variety of 
reasons. However, students should seek competent advising in order to 
ensure that courses are taken in the proper sequence. 

All students are urged to request a senior audit form in the Clark School 
of Engineering, Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Support at 
least two semesters before graduation to review their academic progress 
and discuss final graduation requirements. 



Advising 



Advising is mandatory for all students in the Clark School. Advising is 
provided by the Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic support, 
located in Room 1124 Glenn L. Martin Hall, 301-405-3855, and is 
available by appointment Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 
p.m. Walk-in advising is also available at some times during the week. 
Appointments for other hours can be made with a special request. When a 
student is starting his or her lower level major courses, typically in the first 
semester of the second year, advising is done primarily in the student's 
department. Refer to the individual program for additional information. 



Departments and Degrees 



The Clark School of Engineering offers the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
the following fields of study: Aerospace Engineering, Biological Resources 
Engineering (see also College of Agriculture and Natural Resources), 
Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical 
Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Materials Science and

and Applied Science Option). Except for the Applied Science Option of the 
B.S. Engineering degree, all of the above programs are accredited by the 
Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for 
Engineering and Technology. 



70 A. James Clark School of Engineering 



The Freshman-Sophomore Years 

The freshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to iay a 
strong foundation in mathematics, physical sciences, and the engineering 
sciences upon which the student will later develop a professional program 
during the upper division (junior and senior) years. During the first two years, 
students are introduced to the concepts of engineering design and worl< in 
multidisciplinary teams. The School course requirements for the freshman 
and sophomore years are similar for all students, regardless of their 
intended academic program, thus affording the student maximum flexibility 
in choosing a specific engineering specialization. 

Engineering Sciences 

Engineering Science courses represent a common core of basic material 
offered to students of several different departments. All freshman and 
sophomore students of engineering are required to take ENES 100. Other 
ENES courses, 102, 220, 221, and 230, are specified by the different 
departments or taken by the student as electives. The responsibility for 
teaching the engineering science courses is divided among the engineering 
departments. In addition to the core courses noted above, several courses 
of general interest to engineering or non-engineering students have been 
given ENES designations. See the List of Approved Courses in chapter 8 for 
further descriptions of these courses. 

Freshman Curriculum 

See individual department requirements in chapter 7. Entering freshman 
math placement is determined solely by performance on the University 
math placement exam and not on the Math SAT score. Placement in MATH 
115 or lower will delay by a semester eligibility to take certain engineering 
courses. 



For further information on study and/or internship abroad programs, students 
should contact the director of undergraduate recruitment and special programs 
in the Clark School at 301-405-3857 or visit our web site at 



www.eng.umd.edu/international. 



Sophomore Year 



No later than the sophomore year, a student should select an academic 
degree program (Aerospace, Biological Resources, Chemical, Civil, 
Computer, Electrical, Fire Protection, Mechanical, or Materials Science and 
Engineering) and this department assumes the responsibility for the 
student's academic guidance, counseling, and program planning from that 
point until the completion of the degree requirements of that program as 
well as the School. For the specific requirements, see the curriculum listing 
in each engineering department. 

Dual Degree Program 

The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative arrangement between the Clark 
School of Engineering and selected liberal arts colleges which allows 
students to earn undergraduate degrees from both institutions in 
approximately five years. A student in the Dual Degree Program will attend 
the liberal arts college for approximately three academic years (minimum 
90 semester hours) and the Clark School of Engineering at the University of 
Maryland for approximately two academic years (minimum hours required 
determined individually approximately 60 semester hours). 

Dual degree candidates may participate in any of the baccalaureate 
programs in the Clark School of Engineering. 

At the present time the participating institutions in Maryland and the 
District of Columbia are American University, Bowie State University, 
Columbia Union College, Coppin State College, Frostburg State University, 
Morgan State University, College of Notre Dame of Maryland, St. Mary's 
College of Maryland, Salisbury State University, Towson State University, 
Western Maryland College, Trinity College, and Washington College. Also 
participating in the program are Kentucky State University, King College in 
Tennessee, Shippensburg State University in Pennsylvania, and Xavier 
University in Louisiana. 



Minors 

Minor in International Engineering: 15 to 21 credits, students 
complete the course "International Business Cultures for Engineering and 
Technology" plus additional courses in language, culture studies, or 
internationally related students, and an international engineering 
experience abroad. Contact the director of Undergraduate RecruitmeoLansL 
Sperial Prngrams (301 -AnR-3S57) or visit the web at |www.| 
I eng.umd.edu/international [ for more information. Students who fulfill minor 
requirements will receive a notation on their official transcript. 

Minor in Project Management: 15 credits. A basic understanding of 
project management is becoming increasingly important for engineers. 
Such knowledge enables them to contribute immediately to employers, and 
to advance their careers. In addition to a strong engineering background, 
there is significant need for engineers to understand the fundamentals of 
managing projects in order to effectively participate as members of project 
teams. Students who successfully complete minor requirements will 
receive a notation on their official transcript. Contact John Cable, Project 
Management Minor Advisor (jcable@umd.edu) or visit the web site

I htmlj tor more information. 

Engineering Transfer Programs 

Most of the community colleges in Maryland provide one- or two-year 
programs which have been coordinated to prepare students to enter the 
sophomore or junior year in engineering at the University of Maryland. 
These curricula are identified as Engineering Transfer Programs in the 
catalogs of the sponsoring institutions. The various associate degree 
programs in technology do not provide the preparation and transferability 
into the degree curricula as the designated transfer programs. A maximum 
of one-half of the degree credits (approximately 60 semester hours) may be 
transferred from a two-year community college program. 

There may be some courses which are not offered by the schools 
participating in the engineering transfer program. Students should investigate 
the feasibility of completing these courses in summer school at the University 
of Maryland before starting their junior course work in the fall semester. 

Financial Assistance 

The Clark School offers scholarships to talented undergraduate engineering 
students. This is a competitive scholarship program with scholarships 
awarded for merit. Financial need and a variety of other factors may also be 
considered. 

The Benjamin T. Rome Sclioiarsliip is a full-ride scholarship awarded to a 
new freshman student each year. The Rome Scholarship covers all 
expenses (tuition and fees, room and board) plus a book allowance and a 
stipend. The award is renewable for three additional years provided the 
recipient maintains good academic standing and makes progress toward an 
engineering degree. 

To be considered for all engineering scholarships, students must complete 
the online scholarship application. The deadline for new freshman is March 
1st and the deadline for current or new transfer students is May 31st. For 
more information contact Jane Fines, Director of Undergraduate 
Recruitment K, Special Prngrarp.s. 301-405-3857 or visit the web at

journalists, communication scholars and nationally recognized professional 
programs. The school's mission is simple: to produce the best possible 
journalists for leading newspapers, magazines, TV, radio and online news 
outlets. Recent graduates are editors, reporters and producers at The New

The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps offers students the opportunity to earn 
a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army (Active, 
Reserve, or National Guard) while completing their undergraduate degree. 

Four-Year Program 

The four-year program is composed of the Basic Leadership Course and the 
Advance Leadership Course. The first two years (Basic Course) consists of a 
general introduction to military customs and courtesy, soldier skills, 
communication skills, personal development, and introductory leadership 
skills. Students enrolled in the basic course incur no obligation and may 
discontinue the program at any time. In the final two years (Advanced Course), 
students concentrate on developing leadership skills in organizations. 
Students must have permission of the Director of Army ROTC to enroll in the 
advanced course. The Advanced Course requires five weeks of field training at 
Fort Lewis, Washington the summer after their junior year. 

Two-Year Program 

The two-year program is available to students with two years and a summer 
remaining in their university studies. The academic requirements for this 
program are identical to the Advanced Course in the four-year program, and 
students are eligible to receive the same benefits. During the summer 
preceding the junior year, students must attend five weeks of field training at 
Fort Knox, Kentucky. Students should start the application process for this 
option no later than January of their sophomore year. 



Scholarships and Incentives 

Army ROTC Scholarships are available for four, three or two years on a 
competitive basis. The scholarships are based solely on merit — not financial 
need. Those selected receive tuition and mandatory fees, a book allowance, 
and a non-taxable monthly allowance ranging from $350-$500 based on 
academic year.

Educational Talent Search 

Educational Talent Search, a discretionary early intervention grant funded 
by the U.S. Department of Education, increases the college participation of 
low-income and first-generation college students by creating an academic 
pipeline from middle school to high school to baccalaureate study. 
Authorized by the Higher Education Act of 1965, Talent Search identifies 
needy students and helps them take advantage of the Educational 
Opportunity Grant Program, now known to as the Pell Grant. Based at and 
sponsored by the University since 1985, Talent Search identifies youth of 
extreme financial or cultural need with an "exceptional potential" for 
postsecondary education and encourages them to complete secondary 
school and undertake further education. It also publicizes the availability of 
student financial aid and encourages secondary school or college dropouts 
to reenter educational programs. Talent Search supplements other pre- 
college counseling and academic enrichment services. Program-based 
Talent Search Advisors work through selected Maryland schools, providing 
students from 6th-12th grades with a variety of services and information. 
The Talent Search Program also refers families to the Upward Bound 
Program and Upward Bound Math/Science Initiative Program for academic 
development and comprehensive counseling services.

Learning Communities 

Learning Community programs in the Division of Letters and Sciences focus on 
first-year students. They combine a one-credit seminar called "Introduction to 
the University" with one or more general education (CORE) courses. The 
seminars facilitate major and career exploration. 



Students in each program attend weekly, faculty-led colloquia that encourage 
active discussion and debate. Other courses in the curriculum may be selected 
to satisfy general education (CORE) requirements. In the second semester of 
their sophomore year, students choose from independent research, service- 
Learning projects, or internships both on and off campus for their Scholars' 
capstone experience. 

The Program's focus on community offers many advantages. Program faculty 
maintain offices in Cambridge Community residence halls; this facilitates 
meeting with students. Several program faculty lead study-abroad experiences 
between the fall and spring semesters, or during the summer. Shared 
interests, classes, and residence halls help students to form study groups. 
Scholars also enjoy meeting guest speakers and having the opportunity to 
continue conversations outside the classroom. Program directors encourage 
students to pursue leadership opportunities in co-curricular activities, design 
and implement community service and social events, participate in recruitment 
activities, or serve on the Student Advisory Board.

Global Communities provides undergraduate international and U.S. students 
with a living-learning environment that enhances their knowledge of the world, 
its cultures and people, along with complementing their academic studies. 
Diversity knows no borders, and an increasingly complex global society makes 
it imperative for students from all disciplines to learn intercultural skills in order 
to work and live in this new society. The program seeks to: create an 
awareness of cultural differences; develop the communication skills, which 
facilitate intercultural exchanges; understand varied cultural values and the 
expression of those values in diverse societies; and explore one's own 
culturally constructed identity. Dorchester Hall, where roommates often come 
from different cultures, offers a unique international environment where Global 
Communities students have an opportunity to apply immediately what they 
learn in the classroom to actual intercultural interaction in their residential 
experience.

Individual Studies Program (IVSP) 

1117 Hornbake Library, 301-314-9962 
IVSP Coordinator: Jef f Kniple 
www.ivsp.umd.edu 



The Individual Studies Program (IVSP) is a degree-granting academic 
program under the direction of the Office of Undergraduate Studies. The 
program ailows students to create new interdisciplinary curricula leading to 
the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Students draw 
primarily from the University of Maryland's course offerings to form an 
academic concentration not othenwise available to them at the institution. 
A written prospectus that defines the student's major and outlines the 
curriculum is required to apply to the program. 

Students must seek the guidance and approval of a faculty mentor prior to 
having their prospectus reviewed by the Individual Studies Faculty Review 
Board. If approved, the courses agreed upon by the Faculty Review Board 
become the basis for the student's major requirements. These listed 
requirements from numerous academic departments, along with the CORE 
general education requirements, are analogous in most ways to the academic 
requirements given to students who select from the University's traditional 
majors. However, each student is required to design a unique program of study 
and defend it in order to be a part of IVSP. 

Individual Studies students must complete a senior project and are 
encouraged to use internships or independent studies with faculty to 
supplement their work in the classroom. While IVSP programs are never 
vocational in nature, drawing from real-life experience as a supplement to the 
academic curriculum is generally encouraged. These projects often serve as a 
way for the students to develop academic connections among the multiple 
disciplines involved in their programs. 

While IVSP gives students the opportunity to create a unique academic 
program focused on a specific area of study, using courses from multiple 
academic departments, it does not substitute for or replicate the educational 
goals of existing University programs, including the Limited Enrollment 
Programs (LEPs). IVSP programs may not include substantial numbers of 
courses from LEP departments. 

Developing a successful IVSP prospectus takes time and usually involves 
several meetings to review and edit the draft prospectus. Interested students 
should contact the IVSP Coordinator and begin the application process early in 
their academic career. Working closely with the Coordinator and their 
prospective faculty mentor, students should plan to complete and submit their 
IVSP prospectus, preferably during their sophomore year, or in their junior year, 
before reaching 90 credits. 

To be admitted into tAe individuai Studies Program the student must 

1. Have a clearly defined academic goal that cannot be reasonably satisfied in 
an existing curriculum at the University of Maryland, College Park. 

2. Have at least 30 earned college credits with at least 12 credits completed 
at College Park. 

3. Have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA in each of their previous two semesters of 
college, and at least a 2.0 GPA overall. 

4. Complete at least 30 additional credits beginning the term following 
admission to IVSP. 

5. Identify an appropriate faculty mentor, preferably tenured or tenure track, 
with significant undergraduate education experience related to the field of 
study. 

6. Complete a detailed plan of study (prospectus) which is approved by their 
faculty mentor and then approved by the Individual Studies Faculty Review 
Board. This proposal will include: 

a. A clear statement of the central academic purpose for their major. 

b. Specific course requirements including at least 27 credits of upper- 
division major coursework (300 & 400 level) beyond the IVSP courses: 
IVSP 317, IVSP 318, and IVSP 420. 

c. The list of courses must include at least one writing-craft course, in 
addition to the CORE Fundamental Studies Introduction to Writing and 
Professional Writing requirements, selected from an approved list that 
is available from the Individual Studies staff. 

d. A semester-by-semester plan for the completion of their undergraduate 
degree within a reasonable period of time. 

7. Complete the IVSP Departmental Notification Form in order to notify 
academic units from which they will take three or more 300-400 level 
courses. 



Foitowing admission, students must 

1. Earn a grade of C or better in all courses required in their IVSP program of 
study including IVSP 420, and a satisfactory grade in IVSP 317. 

2. Complete mandatory advising sessions with their faculty mentor and the 
IVSP staff every semester, including a review of their semester-by-semester 
academic plan for completion of their IVSP program. 

3. If not already completed, work towards immediate completion of the 
fundamental studies requirements for English composition and 
mathematics.

Director: Dr. Marilee L indemann 
|www.lgbts.umd.edTi~| 

The Program in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies (LGBT) 
offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate certificate designed to examine the 
lives, experiences, identities and representations of LGBT persons, those 
who are today described as having a minority sexual orientation or who are 
gender transgressive. Students study LGBT families and communities, 
cuftures and subcultures; histories, institutions, languages and hteratures; 
economic and political lives; and the complex relations of sexual minorities 
to the culture and experience of the gender conformant and (hetero) sexual 
majority. LGBT Studies is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field, and 
promotes the application of new theories and methodologies (e.g., queer, 
feminist, critical race, and multicultural theories) to established disciplines, 
and it advances the generation of new knowledge within traditional fields of 
scholarship. Through study of sexual minorities, students gain an 
understanding of and respect for other differences in human lives such as 
age, ability, class, ethnicity, gender, race, and religion. With their faculty 
advisors, certificate candidates design a program that complements their 
major field of study. 

Certificate Requirements: 

A. Core curriculum for the LGBT Certificate (15 credits)

upper division courses (i.e., those numbered 300 or above). Students are 
encouraged to choose electives to complement their knowledge of LGBT 
people and issues by exploring disciplines that contrast with the major 
field of study. Students may select elective courses from the list of core 



Office of Undergraduate Studies 79 



courses above or from a list of approved courses. A student may also 
petition to have any other course fulfill this requirement by providing

The Major 



Aerospace engineering is concerned with the processes, both analytical 
and creative, that are involved in the design, manufacture and operation of 
aerospace vehicles within and beyond planetary atmospheres. These 
vehicles range from helicopters and other vertical takeoff aircraft at the low- 
speed end of the flight spectrum, to spacecraft traveling at thousands of 
miles per hour during launch, orbit, transplanetary flight, or reentry, at the 
high-speed end. In between, there are general aviation and commercial 
transport aircraft flying at speeds well below and close to the speed of 
sound, and supersonic transports, fighters, and missiles which cruise 
supersonically. Although each speed regime and each vehicle poses its 
special problems, all aerospace vehicles can be addressed by a common 
set of technical specialties or disciplines. 

The subdisciplines of Aerospace Engineering are: aerodynamics, flight 
dynamics, propulsion, structures, and "design". Aerodynamics addresses the 
flow of air and the associated forces, moments, pressures, and temperature 
changes. Flight-dynamics addresses the motion of the vehicles including the 
trajectories, the rotational dynamics, the sensors, and the control laws 
required for successful accomplishment of the missions. Propulsion 
addresses the engines which have been devised to convert chemical (and 
occasionally other forms) energy into useful work, to produce the thrust 
needed to propel aerospace vehicles. Structures addresses material 
properties, stresses, strains, deflection, and vibration along with 
manufacturing processes as required to produce the very light weight and 
rugged elements needed in aerospace vehicles. Aerospace "design" 
addresses the process of synthesizing vehicles and systems to meet defined 
missions and more general needs. This is a process that draws on information 
from the other subdisciplines while embodying its own unique elements. 

The Aerospace Engineering program is designed to provide a firm 
foundation in the various subdisciplines. The Aerospace Engineering 
Department has facilities to support education and research across a 
range of special areas. There are subsonic wind tunnels with test sections 
ranging from a few inches up to 7.75 feet by 11.00 feet as well as a 
supersonic tunnel with a 6 inch by 6 inch test section. There are a number 
of structural test machines with capabilities up to 220,000 pounds for 
static loads and 50,000 pound for dynamic loads. There are experimental 
facilities to test helicopter rotors in hover, in fonward flight, and in vacuum 
to isolate inertial loads from aerodynamic loads. There is an anechoic 
chamber for the investigation of noise generated by helicopters, and an 
autoclave and other facilities for manufacturing and inspecting composite 
structures. There is a neutral buoyancy facility for investigating assembly of 
space structures in a simulated zero gravity environment which is 
supported by robots and associated controllers. 

There are many personal computers and workstations that provide local 
computing capability and extensive network access to campus mainframes, 
supercomputing centers, and all the resources of the Internet including the 
World Wide Web.

African American Studies 83 



The African American Studies Department offers an interdisciplinary 
bachelor of arts degree in the study of the contemporary life, history, and 
culture of African Americans. The curriculum emphasizes the historical 
development of African American social, political, and economic 
institutions, while preparing students to apply analytic, social science skills 
in the creation of solutions to the pressing socio-economic problems 
confronting African American communities. 

Two program options lead to the Bachelor of Arts degree. Both require a 
15-credit core of course work that concentrates on African American history 
and culture. 

The Cultural and Social Analysis Concentration provides a broad cultural 
and historical perspective. This concentration requires 18 additional credit 
hours in one or more specialty areas within African American Studies such 
as history, literature, government and politics, sociology or anthropology, as 
well as a departmental seminar. 

The Public Policy Concentration provides in-depth training for problem 
solving in minority communities. It requires 21 additional credit hours in 
analytic methods, such as economics and statistics, nine credit hours of 
electives in a policy area (with departmental approval). Substantive areas 
of study include the family, criminal justice, employment, health care, 
discrimination, and urban development.

counted toward completion of degree requirements. All related or 
supporting courses in other departments must be approved by an AASP 
faculty advisor. 

Honors Program 

Academically talented undergraduates may enroll in the University Honors 
Program with a specialization in African American Studies. The Honors 
Program includes seminars and lectures presented by distinguished 
University of Maryland, College Park, faculty and guests. A reduced ratio of 
students to faculty ensures more individualized study. 

BA/IVIPIVI Program 

In this innovative joint program, candidates earn a bachelor's degree in 
African American Studies and a master's degree in public management 
after approximately five years. The BA/MPM is designed to integrate the 
study of the history, culture, and life of African Americans with technical 
skills, training, and techniques of contemporary policy analysis. The 
program also features a summer component that includes a lecture series, 
research opportunities, and special seminars. 

Admission into tlie BA/IVIPIVI program requires two steps: 

Undergraduate 

(1) Students must major in the public policy concentration within the 
African American Studies program and maintain an overall GPA of 
3.0 or greater. 

Graduate 

(2) Students apply to the joint program after completing 81 credit 
hours of undergraduate work. Applicants must meet both 
University of Maryland, College Park graduate and School of Public 
Affairs graduate admission requirements. 

Eligibility 

Freshmen or University of Maryland, College Park, students in good 
academic standing with fewer than 60 credits may apply to the BA/MPM 
program. Contact: The African American Studies Department at 301-405- 
1158 for application details. 

Options for Study with AASP 

For students who major in other departments, the African American Studies 
Program offers three options for study: 

1. Students may obtain a certificate in African American Studies by 
completing 21 credit hours of course work. 

For more information on the African American Studies Certificate, 
see the section on campus-wide programs later in this chapter. 

2. Students may designate African American Studies as a double 
major, completing the major requirements for both AASP and 
another program. 

3. AASP can be a supporting area of student for majors such as 
Computer Science, Business, or Engineering. 

4. Students may obtain a minor in Black Women's Studies by 
completing 15 credit hours of coursework.

The Major 

The Department of Natural Resource Sciences and Landscape Architecture 
offers three undergraduate majors. Two lead to the Bachelor of Science 
(B.S.) degree; one in Natural Resource Sciences and the other in General 
Agricultural Sciences. The third major leads to a Bachelor of Landscape 
Architecture (B.L.A.) degree. 

Agriculture is a complex subject, encompassing a range of scientific 
disciplines and professional fields. Majoring in General Agricultural Sciences 
does not require an agricultural background, as the curriculum gives 
students a broad overview of both plant and animal agriculture. This major is 
designed for students who are interested in a broad education in the field of 
agriculture. It is ideal for students who would like to survey agriculture 
before specializing, or for those who prefer to design their own program. To 
supplement classroom work, students in this major are encouraged to 
obtain summer positions that will provide technical laboratory or field 
experience in their chosen area. This program is administered by the 
Department of Natural Resource Sciences and Landscape Architecture. 

This program is currently under revision. Incoming students should contact 
their advisor for any recent changes.

Agricultural and Resource Economics majors complete a set of prerequisite 
courses, a core of classes offered by the Agricultural and Resource 
Economics Department, and one or more fields comprised of selected 
courses from outside the department. The core includes courses in 
economic reasoning, agribusiness management, environmental and 
resource policy, agricultural policy, economic development, and analytical 
methods. The program permits students flexibility in choosing fields to fit 
their career interests. Majors must complete one and are strongly 
encouraged to complete two fields. The curriculum balances breadth and 
depth, and lets students develop academic skills in two or more areas. The 
program provides a good foundation for careers in economics, resource or 
environmental policy, agribusiness, and international agriculture. Students 
are also able to minor in Agricultural and Resource Economics. 

Advising 

Because the program is flexible, advising is mandatory. Appointments may 
be made in Room 2200 Symons Hall, 301-405-1291. 

Awards 

Scholarships honoring Arthur and Pauline Seidenspinner and Ray Murray 
are available. Contact a faculty advisor for more information, 301-405- 
1291. 



Double Majors 



The department features a double major with Spanish for students 
interested in careers in multinational agribusiness firms or international 
agencies. It features a double major with Government and Politics for 
students interested in law school. Both can be completed within 120 
credits. Other double majors are possible in consultation with an advisor.

The IVIajor 

American Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of 
American culture and society, past and present, with special attention to 
the ways In which Americans, in different historical or social contexts, make 
sense of their experience. Emphasizing analysis and synthesis of diverse 
cultural products, the major provides valuable preparation for graduate 
training in the professions as well as in business, government, and 
museum work. Undergraduate majors, with the help of faculty advisors, 
design a program that includes courses offered by the American Studies 
faculty, and sequences of courses in the disciplines usually associated 
with American Studies (I.e., history, literature, sociology, anthropology, art 
history, and others), or pertinent courses grouped thematlcally (e.g., Afro- 
American studies, women's studies, ethnic studies). 

Requirements for IVIajor 

Changes in requirements are under review. Students siiould consuit t/ie 
department for updated information. Requirements for the American 
Studies major include a minimum of 45 upper-level credits completed and 
the foreign-language requirements of the College of Arts and Humanities. 
The major requires 45 hours, at least 24 of which must be at the 300-400 
level. Of those 45 hours, 21 must be in AlVIST courses, with the remaining 
24 in two 12 credit hour core areas outside the regular AMST departmental 
offerings. No grade lower than a C may be applied toward the major. 

Distribution of tlie 45 liours 

AMST Courses (21 hours required)

88 Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation Program 



The IVIajor 

Anthropology, the study of culture, seeks to understand humans as a 
whole — as social beings who are capable of symbolic communication 
through which they produce a rich cultural record. Anthropologists try to 
explain differences among cultures — differences in physical characteristics 
as well as In customary behavior. Anthropologists study how culture has 
changed through time as the human genus has spread over the earth. 
Anthropology is the science of the biological evolution of human species, 
and the disciplined scholarship of the cultural development of human 
beings' knowledge and customary behavior. 

Anthropology at the University of Maryland offers rigorous training for many 
career options. A strong background in anthropology is a definite asset in 
preparing for a variety of academic and professional fields, ranging from the 
law/ and business, to comparative literature, philosophy and the fine arts. 
Whether one goes on to a Master's or a Ph.D., the anthropology B.A. 
prepares one for a wide range of non-academic employment, such as city 
and public health planning, development consulting, program evaluation, 
and public archaeology. 

Academic Programs and Departmental Facilities 

The Anthropology department offers beginning and advanced course work 
in the three principal subdivisions of the discipline: cultural anthropology, 
archaeology, and biological anthropology. Within each area, the department 
offers some degree of specialization and provides a variety of opportunities 
for research and Independent study. Laboratory courses are offered 
in biological anthropology and archaeology. Field schools are offered 
in archaeology. The Interrelationship of ail branches of anthropology 
is emphasized. 

The undergraduate curriculum Is tied to the department's Master in Applied 
Anthropology (M.A.A.) program; accordingly, preparation for non-academic 
employment upon graduation is a primary educational goal of the 
department's undergraduate course work and Internship and research 
components. 

The Anthropology department has a total of four laboratories, located In 
Woods Hall, which are divided Into teaching labs and research labs. The 
department's two archaeology labs, containing materials collected from 
field schools of the past several years, serve both teaching and research 
purposes. The other two laboratories are a teaching laboratory In biological 
anthropology and the Laboratory for Applied Ethnography and Community 
Action Research. 

Cultural Systems Analysis Group (CuSAG), a research and program 
development arm of the department. Is located in Woods Hail. 

Center for Heritage Research Studies, located in the Department of 
Anthropology, focuses on research devoted to understanding the cultural 
characteristics of heritage and its uses. 

Requirements for IVIajor 

Majors are required to take five courses In the core course sequence (three 
introductory courses and two advanced method and theory courses), for a 
total of 16-17 credit hours. They must also take 15 credit hours In 
anthropology electives and 18 supporting credit hours, courses that are 
primarily outside the major. Anthropology majors must also acquire a 
second language or complete a quantitative methods course. 

Required Courses: 

ANTH 220 Introduction to Biological Anthropology 

ANTH 240 Introduction to Archaeology 

ANTH 260 Introduction to Sociocultural Anthropology and Linguistics 

At least two of the following (one must be In major's area of primary 
focus-i.e., cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology): 

ANTH 320 Method and Theory in Biological Anthropology 

ANTH 340 Method and Theory in Archaeology 

ANTH 360 Method and Theory In Sociocultural Anthropology 

Quantitative IVIethods or Foreign Language Requirement: 

A) a quantitative methods course: 3 credit hours required — for a list 
of classes recommended for this requirement, see the Director for 
Office of Undergraduate Studies; or 

B) Three or more terms of a foreign language, depending 
upon proficiency. Proficiency may be demonstrated In one of the 
following ways: 

1) successful completion of high-school level 4 In one language, 
or 

2) successful completion of a 12-credit sequence or of the 
Intermediate level In college language courses, or 



3) successful completion of a placement examination at the 
above levels in one of the campus language departments 
offering such examinations 

Electives: 15 credit hours In anthropology electives, 9 at the 300-level 
or above. 

Supporting: 18-i- credit hours outside of the department with your academic 
advisor's approval (8 hours may be anthropology course work). 

In addition to the above requirements, anthropology majors must meet the 
requirements of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, as well as 
the requirements of the university's general education program. 



Advising 



Undergraduate advising Is coordinated by the director of Office of 
Undergraduate Studies who serves as the administrative advisor for all 
undergraduate majors and minors. All majors are required to meet with the 
director of Office of Undergraduate Studies at least once per term, at the time 
of early registration, in addition, the Anthropology department encourages 
students to select an academic advisor who will work closely with the student 
to tailor the program to fit the student's particular Interests and needs. All 
Anthropology faculty members serve as academic advisors (and should be 
contacted Individually). Each major Is expected to select an academic advisor 
from the faculty in the field of his/her concentration (Biological Anthropology, 
Soclo-Cultural Anthropology, or Archaeology), and to consult with him/her on a 
regular basis. The student's choice of a quantitative methods course must be 
approved by the student's advisor. For additional information, students should 
contact the Director of Office of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Paul Shackel, 
1119 Woods Hall, 301-405-1422; E-mail: pshackel@anth.umd.edu. or Advisor 
Consultant, Kelsha Robinson, 1117 Woods Hall, 301-405-1436; 
E-mail: kroblnson@anth.umd.edu 

Honors 

The Anthropology department also offers an Honors Program that provides 
the student an opportunity to pursue In-depth study of his or her Interests. 
Acceptance Is contingent upon a 3.5 GPA In anthropology courses and a 
3.0 overall average. Members of this program are encouraged to take as 
many departmental honors courses (either as HONR or as "H" sections of 
ANTH courses) as possible. The Honors Citation Is awarded upon 
completion and review of a thesis (usually based upon at least one term of 
research under the direction of an Anthropology faculty member) to be done 
within the field of anthropology. Details and applications are available In 
the Anthropology Office, or from your departmental advisor. 

Student Organizations 

Anthropology Student Association (ASA). An anthropology student 
association meets regularly to plan student events and to help coordinate 
various student and faculty activities. Meeting times are posted outside 
0100 Woods Hall. 

The department and the ASA jointly sponsor a public lecture series.

The Major 

The Department of Art is a place where students transform ideas and 
concepts into objects and visual experiences. It is an environment rich in 
art theory, criticism, and awareness of diverse world culture. Students are 
taught to articulate and refine creative thought and apply knowledge and 
skill to the making of images, objects, and experimental works. Courses 
are meaningful to students with the highest degree of involvement in the 
program and those who take electives. Students majoring in Art take a 
focused program of courses folded into a general liberal arts education 
offered by the university. 

The diverse faculty of artists in the department strive to foster a sense of 
community through the common experience of the creative process, 
sharing their professional experience freely with students. 

The areas of concentration within the major are design, drawing, painting, 
printmaking, digital imaging, and sculpture. Areas of study include 
papermaking, photography, and art theory. Internships and independent 
studies are also available. 



Requirements for Major 



Undergraduate students are offered a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Art . The 
requirements consist of a curriculum of 36 credits of art studio and art 
theory courses, and 12 additional credits of art history and art theory 
courses as a supporting area for a total of 48 major required credits. No 
course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy major or supporting 
area requirements. 

Advising 

The name of the advisor for each class is available in the department 
office. Each second-semester sophomore and first-semester senior is 
required to see his or her advisor within the department. Additionally, each 
student is strongly encouraged to see his or her advisor in the department 
each semester.

brought to the campus to explore Ideas in contemporary art. A strong 
component of this program Is devoted to diversity. 

Course Code: ARTT 



In addition to the university's excellent libraries, students can use the 
resources of the Library of Congress and other major area archives. The 
department Is in the forefront of exploring digital imaging technologies for 
art historical and archaeological teaching, research, and publication. 

The location of the university between Washington and Baltimore gives 
students the opportunity to use some of the finest museum and archival 
collections In the world for their course work and independent research. 
The department encourages students to hold internships at a number of 
these institutions. Curator/professors, exhibitions in the Art Gallery at the 
University of Maryland, interactive technologies, and the extensive use of 
study collections bring regional and distant museums Into the classroom. 

Close ties between the faculty and the undergraduate community are 
fostered through directed-study courses and undergraduate research 
asslstantships. Selected students also gain valuable experience as 
undergraduate tutors for large lecture classes. The undergraduate Art 
History and Archaeology Association sponsors lectures, departmental 
gatherings, and field trips to museums on the East coast. 

Requirements for the major in Art History are as follows: three ARTH 
courses (9 credits) at the 200 level; seven ARTH courses (21 credits) at 
the 30a400 level; either ARTT 100 or ARTT 110 (3 credits); a supporting 
area of four courses (12 credits) in coherently related subject matter 
outside the department of Art History and Archaeology at the 300-400 
level. No credit toward the major can be received for ARTH 100 or 355. No 
course with a grade lower than C may be used to satisfy major or 
supporting area requirements. 

Advising 

Departmental advising is mandatory for all majors. 

Honors Program 

Qualified majors may participate in the department's honors program, 
which requires the completion of ARTH 496 (Methods of Art History) and 
ARTH 499 (Honors Thesis). Consult a departmental advisor for details. 

Awards

The Major 

The Astronomy Department offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science 
in Astronomy as well as a series of courses of general interest to non- 
majors. Astronomy majors are given a strong undergraduate preparation in 
Astronomy, Mathematics, and Physics. The degree program is designed to 
prepare students for positions in government and industry laboratories or 
for graduate work in Astronomy or related fields. A degree in Astronomy has 
also proven valuable as preparation for non-astronomical careers. 

Requirements for Major 

Astronomy majors are required to take a two-semester introductory 
Astronomy sequence: ASTR 120-121, an observing course ASTR 310 and 
an introductory Astrophysics course ASTR 320. Two additional 400-level 
Astronomy courses are also required. 

Students majoring in Astronomy are also required to obtain a good 
background in Physics and in Mathematics. The normal required sequence 
is RHYS 171, 272, 273 and the associated labs PHYS 174, 275, 276. 
With the permission of the advisor, PHYS 161, 262, 263 can be 
substituted for this sequence. PHYS 374, 401, and 404 are required. 
Astronomy majors are also required to take a series of supporting courses 
in Mathematics. These are MATH 140, 141, 240, 241, and 246. 

The program requires that a grade of or better be obtained in all courses 
required for the major. Students planning to double major (or to seek a 
double degree) in Physics and Astronomy should note that this combination 
does not automatically satisfy CORE Advanced Studies. They should 
discuss the issue with their academic advisors to assure that their program 
meets all degree requirements. 

Detailed information on typical programs and alternatives to the standard 
program can be found in the pamphlet entitled, "Department Requirements 
for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronomy" which is available from the 
Astronomy Department office. 

Facilities 

The Department of Astronomy is a partner in the Combined Array for 
Research in Millimeter-Wave Astronomy (CARMA), which operates a 
millimeter wavelength radio array located near Bishop, California. The array 
is the largest and most sensitive array in the world. The Department is a 
partner with Kitt Peak National Observatory in the building of a large format 
near infrared camera for the Mayall 4-meter optical telescope. 
Opportunities are available for undergraduates to become involved in 
research with both facilities. The Department also operates a small 
observatory on campus. There are four fixed telescopes ranging in aperture 
from 20" to 7". There are also six portable 8" telescopes. Most of the 
telescopes now have COD cameras and several are computer controlled. 
This facility is used extensively for undergraduate classes. An observatory 
Open House Program for the public is also run. Details are available from 
the Astronomy Department office. 

Courses for Non-Science Majors 

There are a variety of Astronomy courses offered for those who are interested 
in learning about the subject but do not wish to major in it. These courses are 
designed especially for the non-science major. ASTR 100 and 101 are general 
survey courses in Astronomy. They cover (briefly) all the major topics in the 
field. ASTR 220 is an introductory course dealing with the topic, "Collisions in 
Space." Several 300-level courses are offered primarily for non-science 
students who want to learn about a particular field in depth, such as the Solar 
System, Stellar Evolution, the Origin of the Universe or Life in the Universe. 

Minor 

A Minor in Astronomy may be earned by completing (with grades of C or 
better) an introductory course-like ASTR 100 or ASTR 101, ASTR 220 and 
three of the following: ASTR 300, 330, 340, 380 or 498. Contact 
Department for rules and procedures. 

Honors 

The Honors Program offers students of exceptional ability and interest in 
Astronomy opportunities for part-time research participation which may 
develop into full-time summer projects. Honors students work with a faculty 
advisor on a research project for which academic credit may be earned. 
Certain graduate courses are open for credit toward the bachelor's degree. 
(Students are accepted into the Honors Program by the Department's 
Honors Committee on the basis of grade point average or recommendation 
of faculty.) Honors candidates submit a written proposal on their research 
project and enroll in ASTR 399, complete a research project, write a thesis 
and do an oral presentation before a committee. Satisfactory grades lead 
to graduation "With Honors (or High Honors) in Astronomy." 



For Additional Information 

Further information about advising and the Honors Program can be obtained by 
calling the Department of Astronomy office at 301-405-3001. Students who 
have been away more than two years may find that due to curriculum changes 
the courses they have taken may no longer be adequate preparation for the 
courses required to complete the major. Students in this situation must meet 
with the Departmental Advisor to make appropriate plans.

The Major 



CERE offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. Students in the 
program study Russian, Eurasian, and Central/East European culture as 
broadly as possible, striving to comprehend it in all its aspects rather than 
focusing their attention on a single element of human behavior. It is hoped 
that insights into the region's ways of life will be valuable not only as such 
but as a means to deepen students' awareness of their own society and of 
themselves. 

Course offerings are in a range of departments, including Asian and East 
European Languages and Cultures, Government and Politics, History, 
Economics, Jewish Studies, Sociology, Theatre, and Germanic Studies. 

Requirements for the CERE major include the College of Arts and 
Humanities requirement of 45 upper-level credits completed. The College's 
foreign-language requirement will be automatically fulfilled in the process of 
fulfilling the CERE requirement of taking either Russian, German, or a 
Central/East European language (including Czech, Polish, Hungarian, 
Serbian and Croatian, Bulgarian, and Romanian). The language requirement 
can also be fulfilled by a Eurasian language (i.e. a language from a country 
formerly part of the Soviet Union). Those interested in fulfilling the CERE 
language requirement through a Central/East European or Eurasian 
language should consult the Director upon entering the program. 



90249_081-162 .qxd 5/5/06 5:09 PM Page 95 



Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering 95 



students on the Russian language track must complete a minimum of 24 
credit hours in the Russian language and literature courses selected 
among the following equivalent courses: RUSS 101,102, 201, 202, 301, 
302, 303, 321, 322, 401, 402, 403, 404. Students interested in 
specializing primarily on Central/Eastern Europe have the option of the 
German language track, and must complete a minimum of 24 credit hours 
in the Department of Germanic Studies selected among the following 
equivalent courses: GERM 103, 203, 301, 302. Students on the 
Central/ East European language track must complete the equivalent of 24 
credits hours of language study. Also accepted will be 16 credit hours of 
Russian or German and the equivalent of 8 credit hours of a Central/East 
European language. Fulfilling the language requirement through a Eurasian 
language (a language of a country of the former Soviet Union, such as 
Ukrainian, a Central Asian or Transcaucasian language) will be decided on 
a case-by-case basis in consultation with the director. 

The student's advisor will be the program director or the designate. The 
student must receive a grade of C or better in all required courses. 

In addition to language courses, students must complete 24 hours in CERE 
courses at the 300-level or above. These 24 hours must be taken in at least 
four different departments (with the School of Languages, Literatures and 
Cultures counting as a single department), and may include language- 
literature courses beyond the required 24 hours. Of the 24 hours, at least 9 
hours must be in those CERE courses with substantial and specific focus on 
Central/East Europe (for example, ARTH 488C, GVPT 359, 409, HIST 319, 
340, 443 and other special courses offered in the CERE area with the 
approval of the director) and at least 9 hours must be in those CERE courses 
with substantial and specific Russian/Eurasian focus (for example, GEOG 
325, GVPT 445, 451, 459A, 481, HIST 344, 424, 425, 442, SOCY 474, 
THET 499, and other special courses offered in the CERE area with the 
approval of the director). 



For a full listing of CERE courses, see the website l www.ceres.umd.eduj and 
click on "requirements." 

The various cooperating departments also offer special (i.e. non- 
permanent) seminars and courses in the Russian, East European, and 
Eurasian field. HIST 237, Russian Civilization, is recommended as a 
general introduction to the program but does not count toward the 
fulfillment of the programs' requirements. 



2. Prepare students to excel in traditional chemical engineering 
careers and diverse careers in areas such as biotechnology, 
nanotechnology, medicine, law or business. 

3. Produce graduates who are equipped with quantitative problem 
solving, teamwork, communication skills, and a sense of ethics 
that will serve them throughout their careers.

*Students must consult with an advisor on selection of appropriate 
courses for their particular course of study. 

Technical Electives Guidelines 

Twelve credits of ENCH technical electives are required. It is recommended 
that they be taken during the senior year. 

The senior ENCH technical electives are 400-level chemical engineering 
courses, including ENCH468x, and a limited number of approved 400-level 
technical courses from outside chemical engineering. Students should 
select electives with the help of an academic advisor. Normally at least 
three of the four technical electives should be ENCH4XX; the fourth elective 
may be chosen from ENCH or from an approved list of non-ENCH technical 
courses. Business or non-technical courses are normally not approved. 

One of the electives must have significant mathematical content, and one 
of the electives must have significant biological content. Selection of the 
electives with significant mathematical or biological content is subject to 
the above constraint that at least three of the four electives are normally 
ENCH courses. 

Upon the approval of the academic advisor and written permission of the 
Department, a limited number of substitutions may be permitted. 
Substitutes, including ENCH468 Research (1-3 credits), must fit into an 
overall plan of study emphasis and ensure that the plan fulfills the 
accreditation design requirements. Students may elect to specialize in a 
specific area such as Biological Engineering or Nanotechnology and 
Macromolecular Science; or they may sample a variety of elective courses. 
Upon graduation, those who specialize in a particular technical area will 
receive a letter in recognition of their accomplishment from the Chair and the 
Director of Undergraduate Studies nf thp r:hpminal Fnginppring nppartment A 
list of technical electives are posted at: www.ench.umd.edu/undergrad.

Biochemistry changed starting in the Fall 2005 semester. The lower-level 
requirements for chemistry and biochemistry majors are reflected in the 
requirements listed below. For details, contact the Undergraduate Office or 
visit the undergraduate section of the Department's website 

Chemistry and biochemistry majors both begin their study with a common 
introductory four-semester sequence (CHEM 146/147, 237, 247, 
276/277) along with their associated co-requisite laboratory courses 
(CHEM 147 and 277 are separate laboratory courses to be taken 
concurrently). Other courses common to both chemistry and biochemistry 
majors include UNIV 100, ENGL 101, and CHEM 395 (a one-credit seminar 
in professional issues), CHEM 425 (Instrumental Methods of Analysis), 
CHEM 481/483 (Physical Chemistry I and its laboratory). 

Supporting courses (twenty credits) for both majors include introductory 
biology (BSCI 105), physics (PHYS 141/142), and mathematics (MATH 
140/141). All majors and potential majors are encouraged to take MATH 
241 (Calculus III) prior to beginning Physical Chemistry. 

A student who enrolls in the chemistry or biochemistry program at any time 
following the first semester of study typically will enter the non-majors 
introductory sequence (CHEM 131/132, 231/232, 241/242 and 
271/272; CHEM 132, 232, 242 and 272 are co-requisite laboratory 
courses) which fulfills the lower-level departmental requirements. Transfer 
students who wish to pursue chemistry or biochemistry majors will have 
their previous chemistry course work carefully evaluated for placement in 
the appropriate courses. Starting in 2007, transfer students with four or 
more semesters of general and organic chemistry credit must take, at a 
minimum, the CHEM 272 laboratory course to complete the introductory 
sequence.

raising the quality of life around the globe; the growing diversity of 
society; and the technical, environmental, societal, political, legal, 
aesthetic, economic, and financial implications of engineering 
projects. 

15. An understanding of the impact of engineering solutions in a global 
and society context. Need to appreciate, from historical and 
contemporary perspectives, culture, human and organizational 
behavior, aesthetics and ecology and their impacts on society. 
Includes history and heritage of the CE profession. 

16. An awareness of the need to continually upgrade one's technical 
knowledge base and skills. Life-long learning mechanisms available 
for personal and professional development include additional formal 
education, continuing education, professional practice experience, 
active involvement in professional societies, community service, 
coaching, mentoring, and other learning and growth activities. 
Personal and professional development can include developing 
understanding of and competence in goal setting, personal time 
management, communication, delegation, personality types, 
networking, leadership, the socio-political process, and effecting 
change. Professional development can, in addition to the preceding, 
include career management. Increasing discipline knowledge, 
understanding business fundamentals, contributing to the profession, 
considering self-employment, achieving licensure and specialty 
certification, and additional graduate studies. 

17. An ability to apply knowledge in a specialized area related to civil 
engineering. For a professional civil engineer, specialized technical 
coursework (or the equivalent) Is necessary. Examples of specialized 
technical areas include environmental engineering, structural 
engineering, construction engineering and management, public works 
management, transportation engineering and water resources 
management. Civil engineering specializations In non-traditional, 
boundary, or emerging fields such as ecological engineering and 
nanotechnology are encouraged. 

18. An understanding of the elements of project management, 
construction, and asset management. Efforts of the professional civil 
engineer often lead, in the context of projects, to construction of 
structures, facilities and systems that, in turn, must be operated and 
maintained. Project management essentials include project manager 
responsibilities, defining and meeting client requirements, risk 
assessment and management, stakeholder identification and 
involvement, contract negotiation, project work plans, scope and 
deliverables, budget and schedule preparation and monitoring, 
interaction among engineering and other disciplines, quality 
assurance and quality control, and dispute resolution processes. 
Important construction elements are owner-engineer-contractor 
relationships; project delivery systems (e.g., design-bid-build, design- 
build); estimating construction costs; bidding by contractors; labor and 
labor management issues; and construction processes, methods, 
systems, equipment, planning, scheduling, safety, cost analysis and 
cost control. Asset management seeks effective and efficient long- 
term ownership of capital facilities via systematic acquisition, 
operation, maintenance, preservation, replacement, and disposition. 
Goals include optimizing life-cycle performance, minimizing life-cycle 
costs, and achieving maximum stakeholder benefit. Tools and 
techniques Include design innovations, new construction technologies, 
materials Improvements, geo-mapping, database management, value 
assessment, performance models, web-based communication, and 
cost accounting. Including asset management recognizes that civil 
engineers, during their careers, are likely to be Involved with some 
aspect of capital facilities management.

19. An understanding of business and public policy and administration 
fundamentals. The professional civil engineer typically functions 
within both the public and private sectors that requires at least an 
understanding of business, public policy, and public administration 
fundamentals. Important business fundamentals topics as typically 
applied in the private, government and non-profit sectors include legal 
forms of ownership, organizational structure and design, income 
statements, balance sheets, decision (engineering) economics, 
finance, marketing and sales, billable time, overhead, and profit. 
Essential public policy and administration fundamentals include the 
political process, public policy, laws and regulations, funding 
mechanisms, public education and involvement, government-business 
interaction, and the public service responsibility of professionals. 

20. An understanding of the role of the leader and leadership principles 
and attitudes. Leading, in the private and public arena — which differs 
from and complements managing — requires broad motivation, 
direction, and communication knowledge and skills. Attitudes 
generally accepted as being conducive to leadership include 
commitment, confidence, curiosity, entrepreneurship, high 
expectations, honesty, integrity, judgment, persistence, positiveness, 
and sensitivity. Desirable behaviors of leaders, which can be taught 
and learned, include earning trust, trusting others, formulating and 
articulating vision, communication, rational thinking, openness, 
consistency, commitment to organizational values, and discretion with 
sensitive information. 

* Increased exposure to or emphasis on biological systems, ecology, 
sustainability, nanotechnology, and information technology is expected to 
occur in the 21st century.

The Major 

Classics is the study of the languages, literature, culture and thought of 
ancient Greece and Rome. Students at the University of Maryland may 
major in Classical Languages and Literatures with four options and may 
enroll in a variety of courses on the classical world. These options include 
Latin, Greek, Greek and Latin, and Classical Humanities. 



Requirements for Major 



Requirements for the Classics major include the College of Arts and 
Humanities requirement of 45 upper-level credits completed. 

The College foreign-language requirement will be automatically fulfilled in 
the process of taking language courses in the major. 

Option A: Latin 

Thirty credits of Latin at the 200-level or higher, at least 12 of which 
must be at the 400-level or higher, plus nine to twelve credits of supporting 
courses at any level in CLAS, GREK, or related fields such as HIST and 
ARTH. 

Option B: Greel< 

Thirty credits of Greek at the 200-level or higher, at least 12 of which 
must be at the 400-level or higher, plus nine to twelve credits of supporting 
courses at any level in CLAS, LATN, or related fields such as HIST and 
ARTH. 

Option C: Latin and Greel< 

Eighteen credits of either Latin or Greek and 12 hours of the other classical 
language, plus nine hours of supporting courses (for example, CLAS 170, 
HIST 110, and a 300- or 400-level course in Greek or Roman history). 
Students with no previous training in the second language may count 
introductory level courses as part of the 12-hour requirement. 

Option D: Ciassics in Transiation (Ciassicai Humanities) 

Eighteen credits in CLAS courses; 12 credits in Latin or Greek courses; and 
12-14 credits in supporting courses (normally upper level courses in Art 
History, Archaeology, Architecture, Government, History, Linguistics, or 
Philosophy). Note: Students are encouraged to substitute 300- and 400- 
level courses in LATN and GREK for some of the 18 required credits in 
CLAS. 100 and 200-level courses in GREK may be included among the 



supporting credits if the student's 12 language credits are taken in Latin, 
and 100 and 200-level courses in LATN may be included among the 
supporting credits if the student's 12 language credits are taken in GREK. 

Students are encouraged to take as much language as possible, but 
should take language courses sequentially, i.e., 101, 102, 201. Once 
credit has been received in a higher-level language acquisition or grammar 
course, a lower-level course may not be taken for credit. The student 
should begin the sequence at the appropriate level.

Communication takes as its subject matter the history, processes, and 
effects of human communication through speech and its extensions. The 
departmental curriculum Is designed to provide a liberal education in the 
arts and sciences of human communication as well as preparation for 
career opportunities in business, government, education, and related 
fields. Within the curriculum, students may pursue academic programs that 
emphasize many disciplinary areas, including intercultural communication, 
political communication, public relations, negotiation and conflict 
management, cognition and persuasion, rhetorical theory, history of 
rhetoric, and criticism of public discourse. Departmental advising is 
mandatory for new majors, second semester sophomores, and seniors. 

Admission to the Major 
First-time Freshman 

All first-time freshmen who designate communication as a major prior to 
the end of the final exam period of their first semester will be admitted 
directly into the program. They must sign a Memorandum of Understanding 
that states that they understand that by the semester in which they attain 
45 University of Maryland credits (excluding AP), they must meet the 
following Gateway requirements. 

a. Complete 50% of the CORE requirements, including Fundamental 
Studies requirements in Mathematics and English. 

b. Complete one of the following courses with a grade of C or better: 
BMGT230, CCJS200, EDMS451, PSYC200, SOCY201, or equivalent. 

c: Complete COMM 107, COMM 200, or COMM 230 with a grade of C 
or better 

d. Complete COMM 250 with a grade of C or better and 

e. A GPA of 2.0 or better 

Students may repeat only one of the Gateway courses and that may be 
repeated only once in their attempt to meet the requirements and students 
who fail to meet them by the semester in which they attain 45 credits will 
be dismissed from the program and cannot reapply. 

Transfer Students 

Internal and external transfer students who meet the Gateway requirements 
specified above and have a cumulative GPA of 2.7 in all college level 
coursework may apply to the program up until and Including the semester 
In which they reach 60 credits. (Students are encouraged to apply at any 
time prior to reaching 60 credits as long as the requirements have been 
completed.) 

For those students who meet the Gateway requirements and who apply 
after the semester in which they reach 60 credits, admission is competitive 
and on a space-available basis. 



Newly admitted transfer students who have more than 60 credits have only 
their first semester at the University of Maryland to complete the Gateway 
requirements. 

Appeals 

All students may appeal admission decisions. Students directly admitted 
as freshmen, who are dismissed because of failure to meet Gateways or 
be in good academic standing at 45 credits, may appeal directly to the 
Undergraduate Director in the Department of Communication. All other 
students who are denied admission may appeal to the Office of Admission 
of the University.

The Major 

The computer engineering major combines the strengths of both the 
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of 
Computer Science to prepare students for careers in the computer industry. 
The program encompasses the study of hardware, software, and systems 
questions that arise in the design, development, and application of 
computers and embedded systems. Specifically, computer engineering 
students will have a knowledge of hardware systems (electrical networks, 
electronics, and VLSI); a knowledge of software systems (algorithms, data 
structures, and operating systems); and a knowledge of how these two 
domains interact (digital logic, signal and system theory, computer 
architectural and performance analysis). Computer Engineering students 
will learn about everything that goes into digital and computing systems, 
from solid state physics to CMOS VLSI design, to computer architecture to 
programming, and from operating systems to compiler and language theory. 



Educational Objectives 

The educational objectives are broadly stated goals agreed upon by a 
consensus of the faculty pertaining to accomplishments or level of 
achievement desired of our students 3-5 years after graduation. These fall 
under the following four headings;

The Major 

Computer science is the study of computers and computational systems: 
their theory, design, development, and application. Principal areas w/ithin 
computer science include artificial intelligence, computer systems, 
database systems, human factors, numerical analysis, programming 
languages, software engineering, and theory of computing. A computer 
scientist is concerned with problem solving. Problems range from abstract 
determinations of what problems can be solved with computers and the 
complexity of the algorithms that solve them to practical matters (design of 
computer systems which are easy for people to use). Computer scientists 
build computational models of systems including physical phenomena 
(weather forecasting), human behavior (expert systems, robotics), and 
computer systems themselves (performance evaluation). Such models 
often require extensive numeric or symbolic computation. 

The Computer Science Department also offers jointly with the Department 
of Electrical and Computer Engineering a program in computer engineering. 
For details see the Computer Engineering listing. 

Requirements for Computer Science Major 

The course of study for a Computer Science major must include all of the 
following requirements: 

1. A grade of C or better in each of the following courses: 

a. CMSC 131 or a score of 5 on A version of the JAVA Advanced 
Placement exam or a score of 4 or 5 on the AB version of the 
JAVA Advanced Placement exam or an acceptable score on the 
appropriate Department exemption examination, which is to be 
taken at the time of entry into the program. 

b. CMSC 132 or acceptable score on the Java Advanced 
Placement examination or acceptable score on the appropriate 
Department exemption examination, which is to be taken at the 
time of entry into the program. 

c. CMSC 212 or acceptable score on the appropriate Department 
exemption examination, which is to be taken at the time of 
entry into the program. 

d. CMSC 250 or acceptable score on the appropriate Department 
exemption examination, which is to be taken at the time of 
entry into the program. 

e. At least 27 credit hours at the 300-400 levels. These must 
include CMSC 311, CMSC 330, CMSC 351, and at least 15

must choose their 15 credit hours from the remaining courses in the 
other four areas. 



2. MATH 140 and 141. A STAT course which has MATH 141 (or a 
more advanced mathematics course) as a prerequisite, and one 
other MATH, STAT, or AMSC course which has MATH 141 (or a 
more advanced mathematics course as a prerequisite. A grade 
of C or better must be earned in each of the courses. No course 
that is cross-listed as CMSC may be counted in this 
requirement. 

3. A minimum of 12 additional credit hours of 300-400 level courses 
in one discipline outside of computer science with an average 
grade of C or better. No course that is cross-listed as CMSC may 
be counted in this requirement. Note: The following general 
guidelines should be observed when selecting courses for this 
upper level supporting sequence: 

a. Courses must have all the same four-letter acronym 

b. Each course should be a minimum of 3 credits. 

c. Only 1 special topics or independent study course (such as 
courses numbered 498 or 499) may be used. 

Any variations must be approved by the Undergraduate Program Director. 
No course used to fulfill another requirement (other than CORE Advanced

requirements does not guarantee admission - only the top ten applicants 
will be admitted into the program each year. The application deadline for 
the 2006-2007 academic year is July 1, 2006. Applications received after 
this date may be accepted at the discretion of the Honors Director. 

The Honors Program is a four-semester (12 required credit hours) 
sequence, which a student begins in the fall semester of his or her junior 
year. CCJS 388H is the first course in the sequence, and will only be 
offered in the fall semester, as of Fall 2005. After completion of 388H, the 
student may opt for one of two tracks: (1) a year-long empirical thesis 
project (3 credits per semester) and one graduate seminar in the 
Department (3 credits); or, (2) two graduate seminars in the Department (3 
credits per course) and a literature-based thesis (one semester, 3 credits). 
The empirical thesis must involve data analysis, whereas the literature- 
based thesis requires intensive reading for a critical paper. Both thesis 
options result in a final paper 25-40 pages in length and must be orally 
defended. Honors students may count their honors courses toward 
satisfaction of their major curriculum requirements. 

Applications are available from the CCJS Advising Office.

The Major 

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers two undergraduate 
curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree: 

1. Elementary Education: for the preparation of teachers of grades 
1-6 and middle school, and 

2. Secondary Education: for the preparation of teachers in various 
subject areas for teaching in middle schools and secondary 
schools, grades 7-12. 

All secondary education majors are required to have an academic 
content major. 

The Department has multiple pathways for students who are Interested in 
teaching at the secondary level: 

The Duai iVIajor option, which is designed for incoming freshmen or 
sophomores, leads to the Bachelor's degree with a major in an academic 
content area plus a second major In secondary education. All secondary 
majors are required to have an academic content major which satisfies the 
requirements of the academic department and meets the standards for 
teacher certification. Candidates who follow the proposed sequencing of 
courses can complete both majors in four years with careful advisement 
and scheduling. 

The iVIinor in Secondary Education provides opportunities for 
undergraduate subject area majors to enroll in a sequence of education 
courses that helps them to determine If teaching is a viable career option 
for them. The 15-18 credit minor may be taken prior to admission into a 
teacher preparation program. If an undergraduate student pursuing or 
completing the minor desires to enter an education track, the candidate 
must apply for the dual major program to obtain certification as a 
secondary education classroom teacher through completion of a Maryland 
State Department of Education approved program option. Some of the 
courses students take to complete the Minor in Secondary Education may 
also be applicable in certification options at the graduate level offered 
through the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. These students 
should consult with an advisor in the Department of Curriculum and 
Instruction to identify the most appropriate option leading to teacher 
certification and to review the specific admission requirements associated 
with these programs. 

The Certificate Program requires completion of an academic major, 
including coursework specific to meet certification standards In the 
certificate area, and a bachelor's degree in an approved academic content 
area, plus the completion of a certificate program in secondary education 
to meet requirements in UM's approved program for MSDE certification. 
Selected coursework from the Minor in Secondary Education may be taken 
prior to admission to the Certificate Program option. 

The Five-Year integrated iVIaster's witii Certification Program, which Is 
intended for content majors entering the junior or senior year, is for 
talented students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 who seek to combine

The Major 



The undergraduate curriculum, which leads toward a B.A. degree in Dance, 
is designed to facilitate the acquisition of new movement skills, enhance 
creativity, and develop scholarly insights in the field. Comprehensive studio 
and theory courses provide a foundation for a range of careers in dance. 
Students may choose to study a particular aspect of dance in depth, such 
as performance, choreography, or production; or they may choose to merge 
their interest in dance with an interest in another field of study. Graduates 
of the program pursue graduate work in dance as well as careers as 
professional dancers and choreographers, university and secondary school 
teachers, dance managers, and dance critics. They also work in the fields 
of dance medicine and therapy. 

The dance faculty is composed of a number of distinguished teachers, 
choreographers, and performers, each one a specialist in his or her own 
field. Visiting artists throughout the year make additional contributions to 
the program. There are performance and choreographic opportunities for all 
dance students, ranging from informal workshops to fully mounted concerts 
both on and off campus. 

Requirements for the Major 

students must complete 57 semester hours of dance credits. Of these, 18 
hours of modern technique at the Dance 248 and above level and four 
hours of ballet technique at the Dance 228 and above level are required. 
The remaining 35 credits must be distributed as follows;

The Major 

Economics is the study of the production, pricing, and distribution of goods 
and services within societies. Economists study such problems as inflation, 
unemployment, technical change, poverty, environmental quality, and 
foreign trade. Economists also apply economics to such diverse areas as 
crime, health care and the elderly, discrimination, urban development, and 
developing nation problems. 

Two characteristics of modern economics receive special attention in the 
department's program. Government policies have profound effects on how 
our economic system performs. Government expenditures, regulations, and 
taxation either directly or indirectly affect both households and firms. Second, 
there is a growing interdependency among economies throughout the world. 
Extensive worldwide markets exist in which goods and services are traded, 
and capital and investments move across national boundaries. Economic 
events in one nation are often quickly transmitted to other nations. 

Economists study these phenomena through the development of 
systematic principles and analytic models which describe how economic 
agents behave and interact. These models are the subject of empirical 
testing, often using computers and extensive data sets. 

The interests of the faculty, as reflected in the course offerings, are both 
theoretical and applied. As a large, diverse department, the economics 
department offers courses in all of the major fields of economic study. The 
department's program stresses the application of economic theory and 
econometrics to current problems in a large number of fields. Many 
courses in the department's program analyze the role of the government 
and public policies on the economy. 



Students must also complete 21 hours in upper level 
Economics courses: 

a) three hours in statistics; ECON 321 or STAT 400 (check with 
advisor). Majors who declared after January 1, 1998, must take 
ECON 321 or STAT 400. 

b) three hours in economic history or comparative systems; ECON 
310, 311, 312, 314, 315, 380, 410 or 416 

c) nine hours in courses with at least one semester of 
intermediate theory (ECON 305 or 306) or economic statistics 
(ECON 321) as a prerequisite. As of September 1, 1999, all 
400 level Economics classes meet this requirement. ECON 
430, 449, 450, 451, 465, and 490 taken before that date do 
not fulfill the requirement; 

d) six other hours in any upper-division economics course except 
ECON 386. 

(2) Additionai Supporting Courses (15 iiours) 

Students must earn 15 hours of credit in upper-division courses in 
addition to the 38 hours of Economics (and Mathematics) courses 
listed above and the university's CORE requirements. Upper 
division courses include all courses with a 300 number and above 
except the Junior English writing class, internships, experiential 
learning, and "non-traditional" courses. Additional mathematics 
courses beyond the required mathematics course (MATH 220 or 
140), and computer programming courses at the 200-level and 
above may be counted as fulfilling the Additional Support Course 
Requirement. Additional economics courses may be included 
among the 15 hours of supporting courses. All supporting courses 
must be approved by an Economics Department Advisor. 

All courses meeting this Additional Supporting Course requirement 
must be completed with a grade of C or better and may not be 
taken pass-fail except ECON 386, which can only be taken pass- 
fail. 

Study Sequences and Plans of Study 

Economics is an analytic discipline, building on a core of principles, analytic 
models, and statistical techniques. Students must begin with a foundation 
in mathematics and economic principles (ECON 200 and ECON 201). A 
more advanced, analytic treatment of economics is presented in 
intermediate theory (ECON 305 and ECON 306), which is a necessary 
background for in-depth study by economics majors. 

Students declaring Economics as their major must meet satisfactory 
progress benchmarks for the major. These benchmarks are not applicable 
to freshmen declaring Economics as their major; these students should 
meet with an advisor to set appropriate expectations and an academic plan 
for their Economics course work. Otherwise, Economics majors must 
complete (with a grade of 'C or higher) EC0N200, EC0N201, MATH220 or 
140, and EC0N306 within 30 attempted credits of entering the major. The 
College also requires the completion of four CORE Distributive Studies 
courses (which can include EC0N200, EC0N201, and Calculus), as well as 
the English Fundamental Studies requirement. 



90249_081-162 .qxd 5/5/06 5:09 PM Page 111 



Electrical Engineering 111 



In addition to the benchmark courses included above, students must 
complete EC0N305 and EC0N321 (with a grade of 'C or higher) within 45 
attempted credits of entering the major." 

Empirical research and the use of computers are becoming increasingly 
important in economics. All students are well advised to include as many 
statistics, econometrics, and analytical courses in their curriculum as 
possible including courses that utilize statistical package applications and 
their programming. 

Those students planning to pursue graduate study in economics must 
begin to prepare themselves analytically for graduate work by focusing on 
theory, statistics, and mathematics in their undergraduate curriculum. 
These students should consider the advanced theory courses and the 
econometrics sequence. Mastery of the calculus and linear algebra is 
essential for success in many of the top graduate schools. Students 
should consider MATH 140, MATH 141, MATH 240 (or MATH 400), MATH 
241 and MATH 246 as very useful preparation. 



Advising 



The department has academic advisors providing advising on a walk-in 
basis in the Office of Undergraduate Advising, 3127A & C Tydings Hall. 

Honors 

The Economics Honors Program provides economics majors with the 
opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with faculty supervision 
of seminar papers and an honors thesis. The Honors Program is designed 
for students intending to attend graduate school or those seeking an in- 
depth study of economic theory and its application to economic problems. 

The Honors Program is a 12-hour sequence, culminating in the completion 
of a senior thesis. Students must complete ECON 422 prior to their senior 
year. Students must also complete ECON 396 (Honors Workshop) and 
ECON 397 (Honors Thesis) in their senior year, as well as one of the 
following four courses: ECON 407, 414, 423, 425. Students must 
complete these 12 hours with a GPA of 3.5. ECON 396 is offered only in 
the fall term and students must have completed ECON 422 as a 
prerequisite to ECON 396. 

To be eligible for admission, a student must have completed 15 hours of 
economics with a GPA of 3.25. Interested students should meet with the 
Director of Undergraduate Studies at the earliest possible date to review 
their curriculum plans and to apply for admission to the program. 

Awards 

The Dudley and Louisa Dillard Prize, currently $1,000, is awarded to the 
outstanding Economics junior and senior with a broad liberal arts program. 

The Sujon Guha Prize, currently $500, is awarded to the best Honors 
Thesis in Economics. 

The Martin Moskowitz Awards provides scholarships to students based on 
academic excellence, financial need, and a demonstrated commitment to 
and philosophy of public service.

The Major 



The Electrical Engineering major is intended to prepare students to function 
as effective citizens and engineers in an increasingly technological world as 
well as in science and engineering subjects. Depth as well as breadth is 
required in the humanities and social sciences to understand the 
economic, ecologic, and human factors involved in reaching the best 
solutions to today's problems. 

The basic foundation in mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences 
is established in the first two years of the curriculum. A core of required 
Electrical Engineering courses is followed by a flexible structure of electives 
that allows either breadth or specialization. Appropriate choices of electives 
can prepare an Electrical Engineering major for a career as a practicing 
engineer and/or for graduate study. 

Areas stressed in the major include communication systems, computer 
systems, control systems, engineering electromagnetics, microelectronics, 
and power systems. Within these areas are courses in such topics as solid 
state electronics, integrated circuits, lasers, communications engineering, 
computer design, power engineering, digital signal processing, antenna 
design, and many others. Project courses allow undergraduates to 
undertake independent study under the guidance of a faculty member in an 
area of mutual interest. 

Educational Objectives 

The educational objectives are broadly stated goals agreed upon by a 
consensus of the faculty pertaining to accomplishments or level of 
achievement desired of our students 3-5 years after graduation. These fall 
under the following four headings: 

1. Technical Knowledge: Graduate engineers trained in the 
fundamentals of electrical engineering and relevant specialties so 
they are prepared to succeed in graduate school and/or be 
productive engineers in government or industry. 

2. Laboratory, Design, and Research: Graduate engineers who can

experimental techniques to generate and analyze data as well as 
use state-of-the-art software and instrumentation to solve electrical 
engineering problems. 

5. Design: Theoretical understanding of and ability to engage in the 
creative design process through the integration and application of 
diverse technical knowledge and expertise to meet customer needs 
and address social issues. 

6. Research: Ability to formulate and answer empirical and theoretical 
questions through participation in undergraduate research projects 
for interested and qualified students. 

7. Leadership: Awareness of the need for engineering leaders both 
within the profession and the larger community, as well as some 
preparation to assume those leadership roles. 

8. Communication Skills: Ability to communicate effectively both 
through oral presentations and the written word. 

9. Interpersonal Skills: Ability to interact professionally with others in 
the workplace, to engage effectively in teamwork, and to function 
productively on multidisciplinary group projects. 

10. Engineering Ethics: Understanding of the engineer's responsibilities 
to employers, society, and their fellow engineers as well as an 
ability to recognize potential and actual ethical problems, analyze 
critically those situations, and formulate sound ethical decisions. 

11. Engineering & Society: Understanding of the symbiotic relationship 
between engineering and society - specifically, how engineering 
artifacts are shaped by and incorporate human values as well as 
the ways in which engineering solutions impact society - and the 
larger social obligations this entails for engineers. 

12. Life-long Learning: Skills necessary to engage in life-long learning 
and an understanding of the need to continually exploit those skills 
in refining and updating one's knowledge base.

General Regulations for the B.S. 
Engineering Degree 

All undergraduates in engineering will typically select their major field 
sponsoring department by the end of their second year regardless of 
whether they plan to proceed to a designated or an undesignated degree. A 
student wishing to elect the B.S. Engineering degree program may do so at 



any time following the completion of the sophomore year, or a minimum of 
50 earned credits towards any engineering degree, and at least one 
semester prior to the time the student expects to receive the 
baccalaureate. As soon as the student elects to seek a B.S. Engineering 
degree, the student's curriculum planning, guidance, and counseling will be 
the responsibility of the "B.S. Engineering Degree Program Advisor" in the 
primary field department. The student must file an "Application for 
Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering" with the Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic 
Support of the A. James Clark School of Engineering. The candidacy form 
must be approved by the chair of the primary field department, the 
primary engineering, and the secondary field advisors and the college 
faculty committee on "B.S. Engineering Degree Programs." This committee 
has the responsibility for implementing all approved policies pertaining to 
this program and reviewing and acting on the candidacy forms filed by 
the student. 

Specific university and school academic regulations apply to this B.S. 
Engineering degree program in the same manner as they apply to the 
conventional designated degree programs. For example, the academic 
regulations of the university apply and the school requirement of a 2.0 GPA 
or better and a grade of C or better in all engineering courses. For the 
purpose of implementation of such academic rules, the credits in the 
primary engineering field and the credits in the secondary field are 
considered to count as the "major" for such academic purposes. 

Options of the "B.S. Engineering" Program 

The B.S. Engineering Program has the following objectives: 

• To provide the basic professional education and flexibility to tailor 
ABET accredited engineering program (Engineering Option) to those 
students who plan to have a career in or continue their engineering 
studies at the graduate level in one of the many interdisciplinary 
fields of engineering such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, 
environmental, robotics, systems engineering, and many others. 

• To prepare students who do not wish to follow a professional 
career in a traditional engineering field but rather plan to use the 
breadth and depth of their engineering education as preparation for 
entry into post-baccalaureate study or careers in such fields as 
medicine, law, or business administration. 

• To prepare those students who do not intend to pursue a career in 
a traditional engineering field but rather want to use a more broad 
engineering curriculum in order to gain a professional auxiliary or 
management position in an engineering-related industry. 

• The program is designed to give the student maximum flexibility to 
design an academic program which is specific to the student's 
career goals. To accomplish these objectives, the program has two 
optional paths: the Engineering Option and the Applied Science 
Option. 

The engineering option, which is ABET-accredited, should be particularly 
attractive to those students contemplating graduate study or professional 
employment in the interdisciplinary engineering fields, such as 
environmental engineering, bio-engineering, bio-medical, systems and 
control engineering, and manufacturing engineering, or for preparatory entry 
into a variety of newer or interdisciplinary areas of graduate study. For 
example, a student contemplating graduate work in environmental 
engineering might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or her 
program; a student interested in systems and control engineering graduate 
work might combine electrical engineering with aerospace, chemical, or 
mechanical engineering. 

The appiied science option, which is not ABET-accredited, should be 
particularly attractive to those students who do not plan to pursue a 
professional engineering career but wish to use the rational and 
developmental abilities fostered by an engineering education as a means 
of furthering career objectives. Graduates of the applied science option 
may aspire to graduate work and an ultimate career in a field of science, 
law, medicine, business, or a variety of other attractive opportunities which 
build on a combination of engineering and a field of science. Entrance 
requirements for law and medical schools can be met readily under the 
format of this program. In the applied science program, any field in the 
university in which the student may earn a B.S. degree is an acceptable 
secondary science field, thus affording the student a maximum flexibility of 
choice for personal career planning.

Minimum Requirements 

Listed below are the minimum requirements for the B.S. Engineering 
degree with either an engineering option or an applied science option. 
Students completing either option of the B.S. Engineering degree are 
required to complete the freshman and sophomore requirements in the 
chosen primary engineering field and the general education requirements 
as outlined by the university and the Clark School of Engineering. The 
student, thus, does not make a decision whether to take the designated or 
the undesignated degree in an engineering field until the beginning of the 
junior year. In fact, the student can probably delay the decision until the 
spring term of the junior year with little or no sacrifice, thus affording ample 
time for decision-making. Either program may be taken on the regular four- 
year format or under the Maryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering 
Education.

Advising 



Advising Is available throughout the year In 2115 Susquehanna Hall. 
Departmental advising is mandatory for all majors each semester. Students 
should check Testudo for their registration date and schedule an advising 
appointment at least one week In advance. Advising appointments can be 
made by calling 301-405-3825 or by visiting the English Undergraduate 
Office In 2115 Susquehanna Hall. 

The Major 

The English major has three parts: English 301, Group I Requirements, and 
Group II Requirements. The Group i Requirements assure that students 
have a broad foundation in literary history and become aware of the 
questions an Inquiring reader might ask of a text. The Group II 
Requirements offer students the opportunity to explore in greater depth 
both literary periods and literary themes that cross periods and to develop 
skills In reading, criticism, writing, and research. 

1. The English major requires 36 credits beyond the university 
Fundamental Studies requirements In ENGL 101 and ENGL 391-95. 
At least 30 of the 36 credits for the major must be taken at the 
30a or 400- level, and at least 12 credits must be at the 400-level. 

2. A "C" or better is required in each of the courses making up the 36 
credits of the major. 

3. Three credits of ENGL 388 (Internship courses) may be included in 
the 36 credits. 

4. Only 6 credits of ENGL 429 (Independent Study) may be included in 
the 36 credits. 

5. Only 9 credits of ENGL 379 (Special Topics courses) may be 
included in the 36 credits. 

6. Only 9 credits of ENGL 428 (seminars) may be included in the 36 
credits. 



^At least 50 percent of the elective courses (mathematics, physical 
sciences, engineering sciences, approved electives) must be at the 300- or 
40aievel. 

'^Students are required to complete 15 credits of approved electives which 
include a senior-level project or research assignment relating the 
engineering and science fields of concentration, unless specifically excused. 

'In the applied science option, the approved electives should be selected 
to strengthen the student's program consistent with career objectives. 
Courses In the primary or secondary fields of concentration may be used to 
satisfy the approved electives requirement. 

For the Engineering Option, the student's program must fulfill all ABET 
requirements. Including sufficient credits in mathematics and basic 
sciences. Additionally, the program must contain the proper design 
component, as specified by ABET, which Is, at a minimum, the capstone 
design course In either the student's primary or secondary engineering 
field. It Is the responsibility of the student and his/her advisors to ensure 
that the requirements are satisfied by the appropriate selection of courses 
in the primary and secondary fields of concentration.

The Major 

Fire Protection Engineering is concerned with the applications of scientific 
and technical principles to the growth, mitigation, and suppression of fire. 
This includes the effects of fire on people, on structures, on commodities, 
and on operations. The identification of fire hazards and their risk, relative 
to the cost of protection, is an important aspect of fire safety design. 



90249_081-162 .qxd 5/5/06 5:09 PM Page 117 



French and Italian Languages and Literatures 117 



The educational objectives of tine undergraduate program in Fire Protection 
Engineering are to produce graduates who: 

1. have the technical knowledge and skills needed to practice fire 
protection engineering in a variety of modern professional settings; 

2. have the basic competencies needed to pursue advanced studies 
in fire protection engineering and related fields; 

3. have the ability to understand and communicate the societal, 
environmental, economic and safety implications of engineering 
decisions; 

4. are prepared to attain professional certification and licensure; and 

5. appreciate the need to maintain continual professional competency 
and to practice ethically. 

The practice of fire protection engineering has developed from the 
implementation and interpretation of codes and standards directed at fire 
safety. These safety codes contain technical information and prescriptions 
derived from experience and research. Research has also led to quantitative 
methods to assess aspects of fire and fire safety. Thus, fire protection 
engineers need to be versed in the current technical requirements for fire 
safety and in the scientific principles that underlie fire and its interactions. 

The fire protection engineering student receives a fundamental engineering 
education involving the subjects of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. 
The program builds on other core engineering subjects of materials, fluid 
mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer with emphasis on principles 
and phenomena related to fire. Fluid mechanics includes applications to 
sprinkler design, suppression systems, and smoke movement. Heat transfer 
introduces the student to principles of evaporation for liquid fuels. The 
subject of combustion is introduced involving premixed and diffusion flames, 
ignition and flame spread, and burning processes. Laboratory experience is 
gained by being exposed to standard fire tests and measurements. Design 
procedures are emphasized for systems involving suppression, detection, 
alarm, and building safety requirements. The background and application of 
codes and standards are studied to prepare the student for practice in the 
field. System concepts of fire safety and methods of analysis are presented. 
A senior design or research project is required which gives the student an 
opportunity to explore issues beyond the normal classroom environment. 

In general, the curriculum is designed to give the student a grounding in the 
science and practice of fire safety. The field touches on many disciplines 
and its scientific basis is expanding. It is an engineering discipline that is 
still growing, and offers a variety of excellent career opportunities. These 
cover a wide spectrum involving safety assessment reviews, hazards 
analysis and research, loss prevention and regulatory issues.

*Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

The Major 

The Department of Geography offers programs of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Many students find that the multiple 
perspectives of geography form an excellent base for a liberal arts 
education. The abilities to write clearly and to synthesize information and 
concepts are valued highly in geographical education and practice. 
Students of geography must master substantive knowledge either in the 
physical/natural sciences or in the behavioral/social sciences in addition 
to methodological knowledge. Some advanced geography courses, such as 
geomorphology and climatology are physical science oriented; economic 
geography, urban systems, and population geography focus on the social 
sciences, while environmental studies, ecology, and the geography of 
human dimensions of global change combine the two. International 
interests are best pursued with complementary study in foreign languages 
and area studies. 

The central question in geographical study is "where?" Geographers 
research locational questions of the natural environment, of social and 
economic systems, and of past human activity on the land. Students of 
geography must master a variety of techniques that are useful in locational 
analysis, including computer applications and mapping, map making or 
cartography, air-photo interpretation and remote sensing, field observation, 
statistical analysis, and mathematical modelling. 

Increasingly, geographers apply their combined methodological and 
substantive knowledge towards the solution of society's problems. Some 
graduates find geography to be an excellent background for careers in 
defense and intelligence, journalism, law, travel and tourism, the nonprofit 
sector, and business and management. Most professional career positions 
in geography require graduate training. Many geographers take positions in 
scientific research, planning, management and policy analysis for both 
government and private agencies. 

Major Requirements Including Program Options 

Within any of the specializations available in the geography major program 
it is possible for students to adjust their programs to fit their individual 
interests. The geography major totals 35 semester hours. In addition to the 
35 semester hours, the geography major is required to take an additional 
15 semester hours of supporting course work outside of the department. 
The hours can be either in one department or in an area of specialization. 
An area of specialization requires that a written program of courses be 
reviewed and placed on file by the department advisor. See Advising Office, 
I pfrak ?inR, ^ni-d05-8085, e-mail geog-advise@umd.edu, web page: 
www.geog.umd.eduj supporting courses generally are related to the area of

Introduction to Geography 

The 100-level geography courses are general education courses for 
persons who have had no previous contact with the discipline in high 
school or for persons planning to take only one course in geography. They 
provide general overviews of the field or in one of its major topics. Credit 
for these courses is not applied to the major. 

Related Programs 

Geographic information Science/Computer Cartography Program 

The Geography Department offers an important area of specialization: GIS 
and Computer Cartography. The Bachelor of Science degree program in 
Geographic Information Science and Computer Cartography is designed to 
give students the technical skills needed to acquire, manage and analyze 
very large amounts of geographic data. Students will get extensive computer 
training in digital processing of remote sensing observations and cartographic 
vector data, spatial analysis, and the display of information products. Almost 
everything we do involves geographic information, from deciding where to live 
and travel, to environmental monitoring and urban planning. Influenced by 
computer technology, the academic disciplines of geographic information 
science such as remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and 
computer cartography have evolved dramatically in the past few decades. 
Remote sensing is the science of obtaining geographic information from 
aircraft and satellites. GIS technology manages and analyzes different forms 
of digital geographic data, and this field has been growing at an extraordinary 
rate. Computer cartography has revolutionized traditional cartography to vastly

Students concentrating in GIS/Cartography must take the Geography 
Primary courses, totalling eight hours: one upper-level course in physical 
geography, and one in human geography plus six hours of systematic 
electives, totalling 12 hours; and Cartography/Geographic technique 
courses, totalling 15 hours. Supporting area courses must be taken from a 
list provided by the department. All math programs should be approved by a 
departmental advisor.

The IVIajor 

Geology is the science of the Earth. In its broadest sense, geology concerns 
itself with planetary formation and subsequent modification, with emphasis 
on the study of planet Earth. Geologists study Earth's internal and surficial 
structure and materials, the chemical and physical processes acting within 
and on the Earth, and utilize the principles of mathematics, physics, 
chemistry, and biology to understand our planet and its environments. 

Geological Studies encompass all the physical, chemical, and biological 
aspects of Earth. Increasingly, geologists are taking a holistic approach in 
the collection and interpretation of data about the Earth, which means that 
the wider context of the geological sciences is broad and diverse. In 
studying the Earth as a system, we are concerned with geology and 
geophysics, hydrology, oceanography and marine science, meteorology and 
atmospheric science, planetary science, and soil science. A major in any 
relevant discipline can lead to a satisfying career within the geological 
sciences. In general, graduate training is expected for advancement to the 
most rewarding positions and for academic employment. 

Geologists are employed by governmental, industrial, and academic 
organizations. Geologists work in exploration for new mineral and 
hydrocarbon resources, as consultants on engineering and environmental 
projects, as teachers and researchers in universities, and in many other 
challenging positions. For many, the attraction of a career in geology is the 
ability to divide time between work in the field, the laboratory, and the 
office. Although the employment outlook within geology varies with the 
global economic climate, Ihe long-range outlook is good. This is because 
our dwindling energy, mineral, and water resources, along with increasing 
concerns about natural hazards and environmental issues, present new 
challenges for geologists. 

The Geology Program at Maryland includes a broad range of undergraduate 
courses to accommodate both Geology majors and students within the 
Environmental Science and Policy Program. Within the Geology major, a 
requirement exists for a senior undergraduate research project to be 
performed under the direction of a faculty advisor. This requirement 
provides invaluable experience in writing proposals and reports, gathering, 
analyzing and evaluating data, and delivering scientific talks. In addition, 
a Departmental Honors Program and a combined B.S./M.S. Program 
are available. 

Requirements for the Geology Major, Professional Track 

The geology curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of industry, 
graduate school, and government. For the B.S. degree, the students are 
required to complete the departmental requirements (49 credits) and the 
supporting requirements (23/24 credits) in addition to the CORE (general 
education) Program requirements. The department requires that to receive 
a degree in Geology, students must have a grade of C or better in the 
required Geology Courses, and an average of C or better in the Supporting 
Courses. 

Courses required for the B.S. in Geology are listed below, Some courses 
require field trips for which the students are expected to pay for room (if 
required) and board. Field camp is taken during the summer at institutions 
other than the University of Maryland, College Park, that offer camps 
approved by the department.

Requirements for the Geology Major, Secondary Education 
Tracit 

The Secondary Education Track in Geology leads to a B. S. Degree in Geology 
with special emphasis on course work that helps prepare the student for 
teaching at the secondary school level. Further coursework and student 
teaching are required for an education certification. This track also prepares 
the student for work as a geologist in government or industry, or for further 
graduate study, although students primarily intending to attend graduate 
school in Geology are advised to choose the Professional Track. 

Relative to the professional Geology track, in the secondary education track 
there is a reduction of two upper-level Geology course requirements, but 
the addition of two Education courses and a Meteorology requirement. 
Further coursework in Education (including student teaching) will be 
required in order to obtain a Maryland State Teaching Certification. 
Although Geology is by nature interdisciplinary, it is recommended that 
students consider taking additional courses in Astronomy, Biology and the 
philosophy of science in order to add to their educational breadth. The 
department requires that to receive a degree in Geology, students must 
have a grade of C or better in the required Geology Courses, and an 
average of C or better in the Supporting Courses.

Combined B.S./IVI.S. in Geology 

The Combined B.S./M.S. program is designed to permit a superior student 
to earn both the Bachelor's and the Master's degrees following five years 
of study. The combined program is an integrated experience of 
undergraduate and graduate work. Nine credits of graduate courses taken 
as an undergraduate can be counted towards both the B.S. and M.S. 
degrees. The master's thesis may be a continuation of work began as part 
of the undergraduate senior thesis. 

Acceptance into the Combined B.S./M.S. normally would occur after the 
end of the sophomore year. The minimum requirements for acceptance into 
this program are similar to those for the Geology Honors program and are: 

1. An overall GPA of at least 3.0 at the end of the sophomore year 
and a GPA of 3.0 or better in all courses required for the major. 

2. At least three letters of recommendation. 

3. An essay or statement of purpose. 

4. An interview with the undergraduate Honors Director and the 
Graduate Director. 

The Combined B.S./M.S. program allows 9 credits of graduate courses 
(600-level or above) to be counted towards both the B.S. and M.S. 
degrees. A grade of "B" or better must be earned in each of these courses. 

Continued progress in the program requires completion of the undergraduate 
curriculum, a GPA of 3.5 or better in GEOL 393 and GEOL 394, and 
maintenance of a 3.0 overall GPA and a GPA of 3.0 or better in all courses 
required for the major. The requirements for admission into the graduate 
program must also be met, including receiving acceptable scores in the 
General GRE exam, usually taken during the fall term of the senior year. 

Requirements for the M.S. Degree 

There are no changes from the current requirements. Students must 
complete 24 credits of course work approved by the Graduate Committee 
and 6 credits of thesis research and defend a research proposal and a 
thesis. Students in the Combined B.S./M.S. may bring forward up to 9 
credits at the 600 level from their B.S. program.

*Joint Appointment with unit indicated 

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs for the general 
student as well as for students who are interested in careers in 
government, the public sector, politics, foreign assignments, teaching, a 
variety of graduate programs, and law schools. Satisfactory completion of 
requirements leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree in government and politics. 

The study of politics is both an ancient discipline and a modern social 
science. The origin of the discipline can be traced back to the earliest 
times when philosophers, statesmen, and citizens studied the nature of 
government, justice, responsibility, and the consequences of political action. 
More recently, the study of politics has also emphasized scientific analysis 
and methods of observations about politics. Today, the discipline reflects a 
broad effort to collect data about politics and governments utilizing 
relatively new techniques developed by all of the social sciences. 

The Department of Government and Politics combines philosophical and 
scientific concerns in its overall program as well as in specific courses. It 
emphasizes such broad areas as political development, policy analysis, 
social justice, political economy, conflict, and human rights. These broad 
conceptual areas are integral components of study in the discipline. The 
areas are commonly referred to as American government and politics; 
comparative government; political theory; international relations; public 
administration; public law; public policy and political behavior. 

Majoring in Government and Politics 
and the Academic Review 

Government and Politics Is a limited enrollment program that has special 
requirements for admission, such as minimum GPA guidelines and required 
courses. Students planning on transferring Into the major should contact the 
department for details on Limited Enrollment requirements. Students admitted 
as incoming freshman will have their academic review after 45 credits. 



Requirements for Major 



Government and Politics majors must complete 36 semester hours of GVPT 
courses with a minimum grade of C in each course. At least 18 of the 36 
credits must be In upper-level courses and all majors are required to

The Major 



Hearing and speech sciences is an inherently interdisciplinary field, 
integrating knowledge from the physical and biological sciences, medicine, 
psychology, linguistics, and education in order to understand human 
communication and its disorders. The department curriculum leads to the 
Bachelor of Arts degree. An undergraduate major in this field is an 
appropriate background for graduate training in Speech-Language Pathology 
or Audiology, as well as for graduate work in other disciplines requiring a 
knowledge of normal or disordered speech language, or hearing. The 
student who wishes to work professionally as a speech-language 
pathologist or audiologist must obtain a graduate degree in order to meet 
national certification requirements, and most state licensure laws. 

The hearing and speech sciences curriculum is designed in part to provide 
supporting course work for majors in related fields, so most course 
offerings are available to both departmental majors and non-majors. 
Permission of instructor may be obtained for waiver of course prerequisites 
for non-majors wishing to take hearing and speech courses of interest. 



Requirements for Major 



A student majoring in hearing and speech sciences must complete 33 
semester hours of required courses (HESP 120, 202, HESP 300, HESP 
305, HESP 311, HESP 400, HESP 402, HESP 403, HESP 404, or HESP 
406, HESP 407 and HESP 411) and six semester hours of electives in the 
department to satisfy major course requirements. No course with a grade 
less than C may count toward major course requirements. In addition to the 
36 semester hours needed for a major, 9 semester hours of supporting 
courses in statistics and other related fields are required. For these 12 
hours, a C average is required. In addition, when a HESP course has a listed 
pre-requisite, this pre-requisite must have been completed with a grade of C 
or better before registration in the subsequent course will be approved. 



Course sequencing is extremely important within this major. Advising for 
majors is mandatory.

PLUS 2 courses in one of the two eiective areas: 

Elective option 1 (Speech-Language Pathology Focus) 

HESP 305 (Anatomy/Physiology of the Speech Mechanism) and 

HESP 402, 404 or 406 (Speech Pathology I, II or III) 

Elective option 2 (Audioiogy focus) 

HESP 311 (Anatomy/Physiology/Pathology of the Auditory Mechanism) and 
HESP 411 (Introduction to Audiology) 

TOTAL CREDilS: 21 

All classes must be compieted with a grade of C or better; as with HESP 
majors, students must obtain a grade of or better in a class order to 
enroil in any courses that require that ciass as a pre-requisite. 

This course sequence acquaints the student with the primary basic science 
background in the speech, language and hearing sciences, and permits the 
student to select two courses in the specific professional areas of speech, 
language or hearing based on the student's primary interest area. 

This minor is designed for the student in other majors (such as Psychology, 
Education, Linguistics, FOLA, etc.) who may have plans to attend graduate 
school in the fields of Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. These 
courses are widely viewed as pre-requisite for admission to such programs 
and constitute a proportion (but not the full extent) of classwork required 
for eventual post M.A. or post-Au.D. certification by the American Speech- 
Language Hearing Association as either a Speech- Language Pathologist 
or Audiologist. Because both graduate programs and ASHA may require 
additional coursework, the student pursuing the HESP minor is strongly 
encouraged to meet with a HESP academic advisor to ensure that eventual 
educational goals are properly addressed. The HESP minor does not qualify 
an individual to work professionally as a Speech-Language Pathologist or 
Audiologist, but does provide a proportion of the coursework required to 
practice in the State of Maryland as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant.

The Department of History seeks to broaden the student's cultural 
background through the study of history and to provide preparation for 
those interested in law, publishing, teaching, journalism, civil service, 
military, museum work, archival and library work, diplomacy, business 
school, and graduate study. 

Undergraduate advisors assist each major in planning a curriculum to meet 
his or her personal interests. We encourage students to meet with an 
advisor, both in the department and in the College of Arts and Humanities, 
once every semester. 

The department sponsors a History Undergraduate Association which majors 
and other interested students are encouraged to join. It also sponsors Phi 
Alpha Theta, study-abroad programs, and experiential learning (internships). 



V. Supporting Courses Outside History 

Nine credits at the 300-400 level in appropriate supporting courses; 
the courses do not all have to be in the same department. Supporting 
courses should study some aspect of culture and society as taught by 
other disciplines. A minimum grade of C is required. 

A. P. and I.B. credits are accepted. 

Honors 

The purpose of the Honors Program in History is to allow promising 
undergraduates to develop historical and historiographical skills, in an 
atmosphere that guarantees personal attention and encourages hard work 
and excellence. The program is a four-semester, 12-credit sequence that 
culminates in a senior thesis, a major research paper written under the 
close supervision of a faculty mentor. The program has two phases. In the 
junior year, students are introduced to the problems of history and writing 
at a sophisticated level via two seminars on problems in historiography. In 
the senior year, students take two supervised courses in the writing of the 
thesis. The minimum GPA for admission to the History Honors Program 
is 3.3.

Subject to a rigorous proposal process, the individual Studies Program 
(IVSP) enables UM students to design unique majors when their 
educational goals cannot be reasonably achieved within an existing 
departmental curriculum. The Individual Studies Program leads to a 
Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. IVSP degree programs 
focus on academic and Intellectual growth through interdisciplinary study. 
Training for a chosen profession Is never the purpose of IVSP.

Humanities requirement of 45 upper-level credits completed. The College 
foreign-language requirement will be automatically fulfilled in the process of 
taking Hebrew language courses. The undergraduate major requires 48 
semester hours (27 hours minimum at 300-400 level) in Jewish Studies. 
These courses may include courses offered by Jewish Studies or cross- 
listed by Jewish Studies with the Departments of Asian and East European 
Languages and Literatures, History, Philosophy, English, Women's Studies, 
and Comparative Literature. 

A minimum grade of C is required in all courses offered toward major 
requirements. A major in Jewish Studies will normally conform to the 
following curriculum: 

1. Prerequisite: HEBR 111, 112, 211, 212 (or placement exam) 

2. Required courses: HEBR 313, 314; JWST 234, 235, and 309; one 
course in classical Jewish literature (200-level; JWST 272 is

The Majors 

The Department of Kinesiology offers two undergraduate degree programs. 
Students may choose to major in Physical Education or in Kinesiological 
Sciences. Brief descriptions of each program follow. Students should obtain 
a current Student Handbook for the de gree program of interest (available on 
the web al | www.hhp/umd.edu/KNES)i Both programs require a grade of C or 
better in all required course-work. Departmental contacts are Mr. Joshua 
Montfort for Physical Education (301-405-2502, jmontfor@umd.edu) or Dr. 
Marvin Scott (301-405-2480, mwscott@umd.edu) for Kinesiology. 

In addition to University general education classes (CORE), the following 
KNES Core classes are required for all majors (both degree programs): 

KNES 287 Sport and American Society 

KNES 293 History of Sport in America 

KNES 300 Biomechanics of Human Motion 

KNES 350 Psychology of Sport 

KNES 360 Exercise Physiology 

KNES 370 Motor Development 

KNES 385 Motor Control and Learning 

Physical Education Major 

The Physical Education degree program is designed to lead to Pre-K-12 
teacher certification in the State of Maryland. Maryland teaching 
certificates are reciprocal with most other states. While this program is 
designed to provide professional preparation for individuals in public school 
settings, it also provides excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue 
other professional opportunities in sport, exercise, or physical activity. Also, 
due to the scientific foundation of the degree program, an appropriate 
background is established for future graduate work for those who desire to 
continue their studies in any area involving human movement and sport. 
Many courses require prerequisites and proper sequencing is very 
important. Not all courses are offered every semester. All interested 
students are urged to schedule an advising appointment with the program 
coordinator before declaring this major. Students should consult the 
department for updated information.

established by the College of Education in order to gain admission 
(Currently 2.50). Additional information is available from the College of 
Education. 

Kinesiological Sciences IVIajor 

This program offers students the opportunity to study the interdisciplinary 
body of knowledge related to human physical activity and sport and to 
pursue specific specializations so that each individual can prepare for a 
particular career goal within the broad discipline. There is no intent to 
orient all students toward a particular specialized interest, orientation or 
career. However, many current students are pursuing careers in medically- 
related fields (i.e., physical therapy, physician, chiropractory), in the fitness 
industry (i.e., corporate fitness, personal training, health fitness director) 
as well as in the sport industry (sport management, sport marketing, 
events management, equipment sales, athletic director). The program 
provides a hierarchical approach to the study of human movement. First, a 
broad core of knowledge is recognized as being necessary foundations to 
advanced and more specific courses. Secondly, at the "Options" level, 
students select from approved upper level KNES courses which they 
believe will provide the knowledge to pursue whatever future goal they set 
for themselves. To further strengthen specific areas of interest, students 
should carefully select electives. The program culminates with a senior 
seminar class in which students write a substantial paper and discuss the 
implications of research.

Honors Program 

The departmental Honors Program complements and extends the University 
Honors Program, although the admission to the University program is not 
required to be admitted to the departmental program. The departmental 
Honors Program provides junior and senior students with opportunities to 
engage in extended study, research and discussions with faculty. The 
program requires 18 credits of Honors versions of courses and a thesis, 
which will be defended before a faculty committee. Applicants must have a 
3.5 overall GPA in a minimum of 45 credits and a 3.5 GPA in at least 9 
credits from the Kinesiology Core. The faculty Honors Committee also 
considers leadership, motivation and maturity in the admission decision. 
Qualified students typically apply in the spring semester of the sophomore 
year. To remain in the program after admitted, students must maintain a 
3.5 GPA. Students may graduate with high honors by completing a thesis 
rated as outstanding and earning a cumulative GPA of 3.7 or higher. 
Inquires about the program should be directed to Dr. David Andrews, 
Honors Program Coordinator, at 301-405-2474 or dla@umd.edu. 

IVIinor 

Sport Commerce and Culture 

The minor in Sport Commerce and Culture provides students with a unique 
opportunity to study the structure and experience of contemporary sport 
culture from an interdisciplinary perspective rooted in theories and methods 
largely - but not exclusively - drawn from anthropology, cultural studies, 
economics, gender studies, history, media and communication studies, 
psychology, race and ethnic studies, sociology, and urban studies. The 
minor requires 18 credits: 

Required courses: Both the following courses (6 credits) 

KNES 2871 Sport in American Society (3)

Advising 



Advising is mandatory for Physical Education majors and strongly 
recommended (but not mandatory) for Kinesiological Sciences majors. 
Students in both majors are encouraged to join the departmental listserv 
(group electronic information) for weekly departmental and campus updates 
and internship/job information. Instructions for joining the listserv are 
available at the Main Office (HHP 2351). Students should also periodically 
check the Bulletin Boards near HHP 2335 for updated information. 
Kinesiological Sciences majors with greater than 80 credits should meet 
with an advisor to review and sign the senior audit. 

Advisors are not assigned, although certain advisors handle issues related 
to policy exceptions, academic difficulties, change of major, athletes, and 
other special cases. Advising appointments are made through the Main 
Office (301-405-2450). Drop-in hours are available during non-peak 
registration times. Advisors can assist with registration procedures, 
program updates. University resources, career guidance, and related 
issues. Students are strongly encouraged to closely follow the program 
sheets that outline the order in which courses should be taken to allow 
proper and timely progression through the degree programs.

The IVIajor 

The Department of Natural Resource Sciences and Landscape Architecture 
offers three undergraduate majors. Two lead to the Bachelor of Science 
(B.S.) degree; one in Natural Resource Sciences and the other in General 
Agricultural Sciences. The third major leads to a Bachelor of Landscape 
Architecture (B.L.A.) degree. For additional information on General 
Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resource Sciences, see the entries for 
those programs elsewhere in this chapter.

The landscape architecture curriculum is a four-year professional program. 
The program is a site-based design discipline that also deals with regional 
and larger-scale environmental issues. The curriculum, a studio-based 
design program, integrates natural and social factor analysis into the 
design process. Digital design studios allow the integration of computer- 
aided design with fundamental design and drawing skills. 

Admission: Landscape Architecture is a limited-enrollment program (LEP). 
See Chapter 1 of the Undergraduate Catalog for general limited-enrollment 
program admission policies. For further information contact the College of 
Agriculture and Natural Resources at 301-314-8375. 

Fresliman Admission: The program's goal is to have the greater proportion 
of program majors admitted as freshmen. Most entering freshmen will gain 
admission to the landscape architecture program directly from high school, 
as space permits. Early application is encouraged to ensure the best 
possible chance for admission. 

Transfer Admission: Admission of transfer students is limited by space 
considerations: Students presenting an acceptable graphic portfolio, 
evaluated by the landscape architecture faculty, may be exempted from one 
or both of the first year studios. Landscape architecture faculty will 
evaluate all other LARC-equivalent courses transferred from another 
institution. 

Tlie Academic Review: All students will be subjected to an Academic 
Review after they have completed the first three design studio courses (or 
their equivalent) in the Landscape Architecture curriculum. To meet the 
provisions of the review, students must complete: (1) MATH 112 or MATH 
115 with a minimum grade of C, (2) LARC 120 and 160 with a minimum 
grade of B, and LARC 140 and 141 with a minimum grade of C, (3) attain a 
successful review of a portfolio (a minimum of 80 points out of a possible 
100) by the landscape architecture faculty to assess graphic and design 
skills, and (4) attain an overall GPA of at least 2.40. Students who do not 
meet these requirements will not be allowed to continue in the landscape 
architecture LEP and will be required to accept another major. 

Otiier Poiicies Wliicli Determine a Student's Retention in tlie Landscape 
Arcliitecture Program: 

• A student can only repeat one of the five Academic Review Course 
Requirements (LARC 120, 140, 141, 160 and MATH 112 or MATH 115). 
That particular course can only be repeated once. 

• A grade of 'W (Withdrawn) in a course is counted as an attempt. 

• A student who does not meet the Academic Review requirements will be 
dismissed from the Program. 

• A student who is dismissed from the Program will not be readmitted to 
the Landscape Architecture LEP. 

Appeais: Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to the 
Landscape Architecture LEP and believe they have extenuating or special 
circumstances which should be considered, may appeal in writing to the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The student will be notified in writing 
of the appeal decision. 

Students in the Landscape Architecture LEP who do not pass the Academic 
Review, but believe they have special circumstances that should be 
considered, should appeal directly to the Coordinator of the Landscape 
Architecture program. 

BUV Degree Requirements: The courses and credit hours that define the 
curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Landscape Architecture 
(BLA) are described in the next section. The curriculum includes required 
courses for the major, as well as additional CORE program requirements 
and electives. Following the successful Academic Review and acceptance 
into the LARC Program, students must have an overall average of a C (2.0) 
to be eligible for the BLA degree. Students must also have grades of C or 
better in all required courses with the LARC designation.

Other AEEL Language Programs 
Arabic Language 

While there is no Arabic major, the Arabic language program enables 
students to read and write Modern Standard Arabic (the language of radio, 
television, and newspapers throughout the Arab World), as well as to 
communicate with native speakers of Arabic. Three levels, elementary, 
intermediate, and advanced are offered. These courses develop students' 
l<nowledge of Arabic in reading, writing and speaking, while also introducing 
them to Arabic and Islamic culture. 

Hebrew Language 

The Hebrew Language Program provides, both to beginners and to those 
with previous background, an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills in 
Hebrew language, culture, and thought. Elementary and Intermediate level 
language courses develop effective communication skills in modern 
Hebrew. Upper-level language courses emphasize reading comprehension, 
vocabulary enrichment, and writing skills. More advanced students focus on 
the analytical study of major classical and modern Hebrew texts. 

While there is no Hebrew major, students wishing to focus on Hebrew 
language as a primary subject may do so through a concentration on 
Hebrew within the Jewish Studies major (see Jewish Studies Program). 

The University of Maryland sponsors a semester program at Tel Aviv 
University. Scholarships for study in Israel are available through the 
Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies. Hebrew students have the option of 
applying to live in St. Mary's Hall (Language House), and participating in a 
study-abroad program. 

Korean Language 

students are able to study this language by pursuing either one of two 
tracks. The first consists of KORA 101, 102, 202, and 212 and is 
designed for students with no previous background in, or exposure to, 
Korean language and culture. The second track consists of KORA 211, 
212, 311, and 312. It is a heritage sequence for students who were 
exposed to Korean as children, but who do not have native fluency in the 
language. Students who wish to enroll in either track will need to be placed 
by the instructor. In addition to these four language skill courses, the 
department offers KORA 242, an introductory course on the structure of the 
Korean language, and KORA 241, a survey of the history of the Korean 
language. 

The Korean Studies Minor 

The Korean Studies Minor provides students with a basic knowledge of 
Korea and its language and culture. Five three-credit courses are required, 
and three of the five must be at the 300-level (or above). This minor is 
open to both heritage and non-heritage students alike. Students who fulfill 
Minor requirements will receive a Minor on the official transcript. Those 
interested should contact the faculty in the Korean Language Program for 
advisement. 



Persian Language 

While there is no Persian major, the Persian program offers language 
courses at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels, and 
literature courses at the 300 and 400 levels. A minor and a major in 
Persian Studies are in preparation. 



The French Major 

Requirements for the French major include the College of Arts and 
Humanities requirements of 45 upper-level credits completed. The College 
foreign language requirement will be automatically fulfilled in the process of 
taking language major courses. 

The undergraduate major in French consists of 36 hours of French courses 
above FREN 203. Two options, having the same core, lead to the Bachelor 
of Arts degree: (1) French language, culture, and literature, and (2) 
French/International Business. No grade lower than C may be used toward 
the major. Students intending to apply for teacher certification should 
consult the Undergraduate Advisor as early as possible for proper planning. 

Students must take language acquisition courses sequentially, i.e., 103, 
203, 204, 250, etc. Once credit has been received in a higher-level 
language acquisition or grammar course, a lower-level course may not be

The Major 

The Linguistics Department offers courses on many aspects of language 
study and an interdisciplinary major leading to a Bachelor of Arts. Language 
Is basic to many human activities and linguistics relates to many other 
disciplines which Include work on language. 

Work on language has provided one of the main research probes in 
philosophy and psychology for most of the 20th century. It has taken on a 
new momentum In the last 30 years and language research has proven to 
be a fruitful means to cast light on the nature of the human mind and on 
general cognitive capacity. Several courses focus on a research program 
which takes as a central question: How do children master their native 
language? Children hear many styles of speech, variable pronunciations, 
and incomplete expressions, but, despite this flux of experience, they come 
to speak and understand speech effortlessly, instantaneously, and 
subconsciously. Research aims to discover how this happens, how a 
person's linguistic capacity Is represented In the mind, and what the 
genetic basis for it is. Students learn how various kinds of data can be 
brought to bear on their central question and how that question Influences 
the shape of technical analyses. 

The major in Linguistics Is designed for students who are primarily 
interested in human language per se, or in describing particular languages 
in a systematic and psychologically plausible way, or in using language as a 
tool to reveal some aspect of human mental capacities. Such a major 
provides useful preparation for professional programs In foreign languages, 
language teaching, communication, psychology, speech pathology, and 
artificial intelligence (and thus in computer work). 

Departmental advising Is mandatory for second-semester sophomores 
and seniors.

The Major 

The development, production and use of novel materials has become a 
major issue in all fields of engineering. Materials which are strong and light 
at the same time are needed for space structures; faster electro-optical 
switching materials will result in improved mass communications; and 
stronger high temperature plastics would improve the efficiency of 
transportation systems. Students will have the opportunity to work with 
faculty and industry on complex problems through projects, internships, 
and research and co-op experiences. A wide variety of careers are open to 
graduates of this program ranging from production and quality control in the 
traditional materials industries to the molecular construction of electronic 
materials in ultra-clean environments, and to the applications of materials 
in electronic packages. The application of materials to solve environmental, 
energy, and reliability problems are also career options. 

Students may major in the Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and 
Engineering Program or may use Materials Engineering as a field of 
concentration in the Bachelor of Science Engineering Program. 

Mission Statement 

The mission of the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the 
University of Maryland is to provide a quality engineering education, 
research at the forefront of the field, and leadership to the Materials and 
Engineering communities. Our educational programs have the following 
objectives:

which brings together the many aspects of materials science and 
engineering in a global context that prepares the student to function as 
a practicing engineer on a multi-disciplinary team 

• Continuous improvement of written and oral communication skills 
throughout the curriculum through lab reports, papers and individual/ 
group project presentations 

• Emphasis of current science and technology materials in the curriculum 
and the relationship of the engineering profession in a societal and 
global context 

• Integration of professional and ethical responsibility in the curriculum 

• Mandatory semester advising and planning of individually tailored 
educational and curriculum goals for students 

• Mandatory mentoring for four semesters, generally during the

AREAS OF STUDY 

Within the Department of Mathematics there are a number of Identifiable 
areas which students can pursue to suit their own goals and interests. 
They are briefly described below. Note that they do overlap and that 
students need not confine themselves to one of them. 

1. Pure mathematics: The courses that clearly belong In this area are: 
MATH 402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 410, 411, 414, 430, 432, 436, 
437, 445, 446, 452, 456, STAT 410, 411, 420. Students 
preparing for graduate school in mathematics should include MATH 
403, 405, 410 and 411 (or 412) In their programs. MATH 463 (or 
660) and MATH 432 (or 730) are also desirable. Other courses 
from the above list and graduate courses are also appropriate. 

2. Secondary teaching: When selecting the seven courses for the 
Secondary Education Track, students are encouraged to choose 
the following as they are required for certification to teach 
mathematics at the secondary level: MATH 402 or 403, MATH 
430, and STAT 400. The following additional courses are 
particularly suited for students preparing to teach: MATH 401, 
MATH 406, MATH 445, and MATH 475. 

EDHD 413, EDHD 426, EDPL 301, EDCI 463, EDCI 350, EDCI 355, 
EDCI 457, EDCI 450 and EDCI 451 are required for certification. 
Before registering for the EDCI 350, EDCI 355, EDCI 457, EDCI 
450, or EDCI 451 courses, students must apply for and be 
admitted to the College of Education's Secondary Education 
Progran i. For more Information, see the Col lege of Education 
website:|www .educatlon.umd.edu/studentlnfo. 



Statistics: For a student with a Bachelors degree seeking work 
requiring some statistical background, the minimal program is STAT 
400-401. To work primarily as a statistician, one should combine 
STAT 400-401 with STAT 430 and at least one more statistics 
course, most suitably, STAT 440 or STAT 450. A stronger 
sequence Is STAT 410, 420, 430. This offers a better 
understanding and wider knowledge of statistics and is a general 
purpose program (I.e., does not specify one area of application). 
For economics applications, MATH 424, STAT 400, 401, 430, 440, 
450, and AMSC 477 should be considered. For operations 
research AMSC 477 and/or STAT 411 should be added or perhaps 
substituted for STAT 450. To prepare for graduate work, STAT 410 
and 420 give the best background, with STAT 405, 411, 430, 440, 
450 added at some later stage. 

Computational mathematics: There are a number of math courses 
which emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics 
including the use of the computer. They are AMSC 460, 466, MATH 
431, 450, 456, 475 and STAT 430. Students Interested in this 
area should take CMSC 114, 214 as early as possible, and CMSC 
420, 211 are also suggested.

Mathematical Statistics Program 135 



5. Applied mathematics: TPie courses which lead most rapidly to 
applications are the courses listed above in 3 and 4 and MATH 
401, 412, 414, 431, 436, 462, 463, 464, and MATH/AMSC 472. 
A student interested in applied mathematics should obtain, in 
addition to a solid training in mathematics, a good knowledge of at 
least one area in which mathematics is currently being applied. 
Concentration in this area is good preparation for employment in 
government and industry or for graduate study in applied 
mathematics. 

Advising 

Advising for math majors is mandatory. Students are required to sign up for 
an advising appointment at the math undergraduate office window (1117 
Mathematics Building), beginning the w/eek before early registration. 
Students who have been away more than two years may find that due to 
curriculum changes the courses they have taken may no longer be 
adequate preparation for the courses required to complete the major. 
Students in this situation must meet with the Department Advisor to make 
appropriate plans. 

Honors 

The Mathematics Honors Program is designed for students showing 
exceptional ability and interest in mathematics. Its aim is to give a student 
the best possible mathematics education. Participants are selected by the 
Departmental Honors Committee during the first semester of their junior 



year . A precise statement of the requ i rem 



www.math.umd.edu/undergraduate/opportunities 



;nts may be found at 



The department also offers a special department honors sequence MATH 
340-341 for promising freshmen with a strong mathematical background 
(including calculus). Enrollment in the sequence is normally by invitation but 
any interested student may apply to the Mathematics Department for 
admission. Participants in the University Honors Program may also enroll in 
special honors sections of the lower-level mathematics courses (MATH 
140H, 141H, 240H, 241H, 246H). Students in Math 340-341 and the 
special honors sections need not be math majors. 

The department has in the past also offered an even more challenging 
honors sequence for freshmen, MATH 350-351 (previously MATH 250- 
251). This sequence covered MATH 410-411, MATH 240 and MATH 241 
with enrichment. 

The mathematics departmental honors sequence and the University Honors 
Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does not imply acceptance in 
the other. 

Combined B.S./IVI.A. Program in IVIathematics 

The Department of Mathematics offers a combined B.S./M.A. degree 
program for students with exceptional ability and interest in mathematics. 
Students enrolled in the Combined Degree Program may count up to 9

The Major 



The mechanical engineering major prepares the student for the challenges 
of today and the future. The curriculum is one of the most up-to-date and 
forward-looking programs in the country. Students become involved with 
real-world engineering projects early on in the program through extensive 
interaction with engineers from industry and this interaction is continued 
throughout the curriculum. The coursework is now fully integrated in order 
to provide a seamless experience in their undergraduate education. 
The student graduates with the skills and the knowledge base which 
are necessary for success in today's marketplace and with the 
education necessary to adapt and succeed in the future as technology 
continues to change. 

The mechanical engineer of today faces a more extensive range of critical 
problems than ever before. It is essential that the graduate be skilled not 
only in the traditional fundamentals of mechanical engineering such as 
solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, 
materials engineering, electronic instrumentation and measurements, 
controls and design, but also in new and emerging areas such as 
mechatronics, smart structures, electronic packaging, communication, 
information systems, total quality management, reliability and 
electromechanical systems. Most of these topics require extensive use of 
modern computing hardware and software. New classrooms which are 
equipped with state-of-the art computers and software have been added 
and these facilities are used as an on-going part of many courses. The 
student is taught to make use of this capability and to make sound 
engineering judgments while analyzing the seemingly unmanageable 
amounts of data and information which are obtained. Attributes such as 
teamwork, ethics, social awareness, and leadership are emphasized in 
many courses. 



Electives taken during the senior year prepare the graduate to choose any 
of a number of career paths or to select a broad-based group of electives. 
All students work on projects throughout their program,, many of which 
teach the advantages of teamwork and the skills required for a team to 
succeed. Individual projects provide the opportunity for sometimes far-out 
creative thinking. In all cases, the students work closely with individual 
faculty members who serve as teachers, advisors, and mentors. Many 
undergraduate students have the opportunity to serve as Research Fellows 
and/or Teaching Fellows in the department. 

Program Educational Objectives 

1. The program will prepare students for successful engineering 
careers. 

2. Students will learn the fundamentals of mathematics, physical 
sciences, and engineering sciences and demonstrate the 
applications of this knowledge to Mechanical Engineering. 

3. Students will learn through course sequences focused on specific, 
relevant mechanical engineering careers. 

4. The program will provide students with practical design experiences 
through partnerships with industry.
