GENERAL INFORMATION 

HISTORY AND ORGANIZATION 

In the earlier years of the Institution the Master's degree was frequently 
conferred, but the work of the graduate students was in charge of the 
departments concerned, under the supervision of the General Faculty. The 
Graduate School of the University of Maryland was established in 1918 and 
organized graduate instruction leading to both the Master's degree and 
Doctor's degree was undertaken. The faculty of the Graduate School includes 
all members of the various faculties of instruction and research who give 
instruction in approved graduate courses. The general administrative func- 
tions of the Graduate Faculty are delegated to a Graduate Council, of which 
the Dean of the Graduate School is chairman. 

Work in accredited research laboratories of the United States Depart- 
ment of Agriculture and other local national research agencies may be ac- 
cepted when previously arranged, as residence work in fulfillment of the 
thesis requirement for a degree. The laboratories are located within easy 
reach of the University. 

LOCATION 

The University of Maryland is located at College Park, in Prince George's 
County, Marj'land, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, eight miles from 
Washington and thirty-two miles from Baltimore. Washington, with its 
wealth of resources is easily accessible by train, street car or bus. 

LIBRARIES 

In addition to the resorces of the University library, the great libraries of 
the National Capital are easily available for reference work. Because of the 
close proximity of these libraries to College Park they are a very valuable 
asset to research and graduate work at the University of Marj-land. 

The new library building now under construction at College Park contains 
a number of Seminar rooms and other desirable facilities for graduate work. 

THE GRADUATE CLUB 

The graduate students maintain an active Graduate Club. Several meetings 
for professional and social purposes are held during the year. Students work- 
ing in different departments have an opportunity to become acquainted with 
one another and thus profit by the broad cultural values derived from con- 
tacts with fellow students working in different fields. 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 

ADMISSION 

Graduates of colleges and universities of good standing are admitted to the 
Graduate School. Before entering upon graduate work all applicants must 
present evidence that they are qualified by their previous work to pursue 
with profit the graduate courses desired. Application blanks for admission 
to the Graduate School are obtained from the office of the Dean. After ap- 
proval of the application, a matriculation card, signed by the Dean, is issued 
to the student. This card permits the student to register in the Graduate 
School. After payment of the fees, the matriculation card is stamped and 
returned to the student. It is the student's certificate of membership in the 
Graduate School, and may be called for at any succeeding registration. 

Admission to the Graduate School does not necessarily imply admission to 
candidacy for an advanced degree. 

REGISTRATION 

All students pursuing graduate work in the University, even though they 
are not candidates for higher degrees, are required to register at the begin- 
ning of each semester in the office of the Dean of the Graduate School, Room 
DD 117 Chemistry building. Students taking graduate work in the Summer 
School are also required to register in the Graduate School at the beginning 
of each session. The program of woi'k for the semester or summer session 
is entered upon two course cards, which are first signed by the professor in 
charge of the student's major subject and then by the Dean of the Graduate 
School. One card is retained in the Dean's office. The student takes the 
other card, and, in case of new students, also the matriculation card, to the 
Registrar's office, where a charge slip for the fee is issued. The charge slip, 
together with the course card, is presented at the Cashier's office for adjust- 
ment of fees. After certification by the Cashier that fees have been paid, 
class cards are issued by the Registrar. Students will not be admitted to 
graduate courses without class cards. Course cards may be obtained at the 
Registrar's office or in the Dean's office. The heads of departments usually 
keep a supply of these cards in their respective offices. 

GRADUATE COURSES 

Graduate students must elect for credit in partial fulfillment of the re- 
quirements for higher degrees only those courses designated. For Graduates 
or For Gradttates and Advanced Undergraduates. Graduate students may 
elect courses numbered from 1 to 99 in the general catalogue but graduate 
credit will not be allowed for these courses. Students with inadequate prepa- 
ration may be obliged to take some of these courses as prerequisites for 
advanced courses. 

PROGRAM OF WORK 

The professor who is selected to direct a student's thesis work is the stu- 
dent's advisor in the formulation of a graduate program including suitable 

8 



minor work. This pro-am also receives the approval of the Dean by his 
endorsement of the student's course card. 

To encourage thoroughness in scholarship through intensive application, 
graduate students in the regular sessions taking courses carrying full gradu- 
ate credit are limited to a program of thirty credit hours for the year. Stu- 
dents holding half-time graduate assistantships are usually limited to eight 
credit hours per semester. One or two extra credits may be allowed if four 
or five of the total constitute Seminar and Research work. 

Residence credit for all research work relating directly to the Master's or 
Doctor's thesis should be stated as credit hours on the registration card for 
the semester in which the work is to be done. If a student is doing research 
work only under the direction of an official of the institution he must register 
and pay for a minimum of four credit hours per semester. The number of 
credit hours reported at the end of the semester will depend upon the work 
accomplished, but it will not exceed the number for which the student is 
registered, 

SUMMER GRADUATE WORK 

Graduate work in the Summer Session may be counted as residence toward 
a graduate degree. Four Summer Sessions may be accepted as satisfying the 
residence requirement for the Master's degree. By carrying approximately 
six semester hours of graduate work for four sessions and upon submitting 
a satisfactory thesis, students may be granted the degree of Master of Arts 
or Master of Science. In some instances a fifth summer may be required in 
order that a satisfactory thesis may be completed. Teachers and other 
graduate students working for a degree on the summer plan must meet the 
same requirements and pi-oceed in the same way as do students enrolled in 
the other sessions of the University. 

Students who are not working for a degree on the regular Summer School 
plan may satisfy one-third of an academic year's residence by full-time 
graduate work for 11 or 12 weeks during the summer, pro\'ided satisfactory 
supervision and facilities for summer work are available in the student's 
field. 

The University publishes a special bulletin giving full information con- 
cerning the Summer School and the graduate courses offered during the 
Summer Session. This bulletin is available upon application to the Registrar 
of the University. 

GRADUATE WORK IX PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS 

Graduate courses and opportunities for research work are offered in some 
of the professional schools at Baltimore. These courses do not appear in 
this announcement, but they are listed in the special bulletins of the pro- 
fessional schools. Students pursuing graduate work in the professional 
schools must register in the Graduate School and meet the same require- 
ments and proceed in the same way as do graduate students in other depart- 
ments of the Universitv. 



GRADUATE WORK BY SENIORS IN THIS UNIVERSITY 

. Seniors who have completed all of their undergraduate courses in this Uni- 
versity at the end of the first semester, and who continue their residence in 
the University for the remainder of the year, are permitted to register in 
the Graduate School and secure the privileges of its membership, even though 
the bachelor's degree is not conferred until the close of the year. 

Seniors of this University, who have nearly completed the requirements 
for the undergraduate degree, by the end of the first semester, may with the 
approval of their undergraduate Dean and the Dean of the Graduate School, 
register in the undergraduate college for graduate courses which will be 
transferred for graduate credit toward a degree at this Univesity, but the 
total of undergraduate and graduate courses must not exceed 15 credits for 
the semester. 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY FOR ADVANCED DEGREES 

Applications for admission to candidacy for either the Master's or the 
T>octor's degree are made on application blanks, which are obtained at the 
office of the Dean of the Graduate School. These are filled out in duplicate 
and after the required endorsements are obtained, the applications are acted 
upon by the Graduate Council. An official transcript of the candidate's 
undergraduate record and any graduate courses completed at other institu- 
tions must accompany the application unless these are already on file in the 
JDean's office. 

A student making application for admission to candidacy for the degree of 
Doctor of Philosophy must also obtain from the head of the Modem Lan- 
guage department, a statement that he possesses a reading knowledge of 
French and German. 

Admission to candidacy in no case assures the student of a degree, but 
merely signifies that the candidate has met all of the formal requirements 
and is considered by his instructors sufficiently prepared and able to pursue 
such graduate study and research as is demanded by the requirements of the 
degree sought. The candidate's record in graduate work ah'eady completed 
must show superior scholarship. A preliminary examination or such other 
substantial tests as the departments elect may also be required for admission 
to candidacy for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. 

The time to make application for admission to candidacy is stated under 
the heading of requirements for the degree sought. 

HEQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREES OF MASTER OF ARTS 
AND MASTER OF SCIENCE 

Advancement to Candidacy. Each candidate for the Master's degree is 
required to make application for admission to candidacy not later than the 
date when instruction begins for the second semester of the academic year 
in which the degree is sought, but not until at least the equivalent Of one 
semester of graduate work has been completed. 

io 



Residence Requirements. The standard residence requirement is one 
academic year, but this does not mean that the work prescribed for each in- 
dividual student can ahvays be completed in one academic year. Inadequate 
preparation for the graduate courses the student wishes to pursue may make 
a longer period necessary. 

Credits and Scholarship Requirements. The minimum credit requirement 
is 30 semester hours in courses approved for graduate credit. From 10 to 12 
credits must lie outside the major subject and form a coherent group of 
course? intended to supplement and support the major work. A minimum ox 
at least 18 credits, including the thesis credits, must be devoted to the major 
subject. At least one-half of the total credits in the major subject must be 
earned in courses for graduates only. The credits for thesis work are in- 
cluded. The number of major credits allowed for thesis work will range from 
G tc 10, depending upon the amount of work done and upon the course re- 
quirements in the major subject. The maximum total credit for the one hour 
per week seminar courses is limited to four semester hours in the major sub- 
ject and to two semester hours in the minor subjects. At least 20 of the 30 
semester credits required for the Master's degree must be taken at this 
institution. In certain cases graduate work done in other graduate schools 
of sufficiently high standing may be substituted for the remaining required 
credits, but the final examination will cover all graduate work offered in ful- 
fillment of the requirements for the degree. The Graduate Council, upon 
recommendation of the Head of the major department passes upon all gradu- 
ate work accepted from other institutions. No credits are acceptable for an 
advanced degree that are reported with a grade lower than "C." 

Thesis. The thesis required for the Master's degree should be typewritten 
on a good quality of paper 11 x 8V2 inches in size. The original copy bound 
in a special cover, obtained at the book store, must be deposited in the office 
of the Graduate School not later than two weeks before commencement. One 
or two additional unbound copies should be provided for use of members of 
the examining committee prior to the final examination. 

Final Examination. The final examination is conducted by a committee 
appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student's advisor acts 
as the chairman of the committee. The other members of the committee are 
persons under whom the student has taken most of his major and minor 
courses. The chairman and the candidate are notified of the personnel of the 
examining committee at least one week prior to the period set for the exami- 
nation. The chairman of the committee selects the exact time and place for 
the examination and notifies the other members of the committee and the can- 
didate. The examination should be conducted within the dates specified and 
a report of the examination sent to the Dean as soon as possible after the 
examination. A special form for this purpose is supplied to the chairman of 
the committee. S\ich a report is the basis upon which recommendation is 
made to the faculty that the candidate be granted the degree sought. 

11 



The final examination is oral, but a previous written examination in 
courses of the semester immediately preceding the examination may be 
required at the option of the individual members of the committee. The 
period for the oral examination should be about one hour. 

The examining committee also approves the thesis and it is the candidate's 
obligation to see that each member of the committee has ample opportunity 
to examine a copy of the thesis prior to the date of the examination. 

A student will not be admitted to final examination until all other require- 
ments for the degree have been met. 

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENTS 

PURSUING GRADUATE WORK FOR THE MASTER'S 

DEGREE IN EDUCATION 

1. Courses numbered from 100 to 199 should carry additional work for 
graduate credit, such as special readings, special problems, special term 
papers, etc. 

2. Academic graduate courses wall be accepted up to one-third of the re- 
quirement for the Master's degree. (Approximately 10 semester hours). 

3. Ordinarily, theses for students majoring in education should not be rated 
more than six hours. 

4. Graduate students working for the Master's degree on the summer plan 
must submit their choice of thesis title to the professor in charge of their 
major subject and defend their thesis subject before their major gradu- 
ate committee not later than the third summer session of their attendance 
for graduate study at the University. 

5. Graduate students working for the Master's degree on the summer plan 
must make application for admission to candidacy for the Master's 
degree not later than the third summer session of their attendance for 
graduate study at the University. Application blanks may be obtained at 
the office of the Dean of the Graduate School. 

6. The completed theses of summer graduate students in education must be 
submitted before March 1st of the year in which the degree is expected 
to be granted. (The degrees for summer graduate students will be granted 
at the regular commencement in June following the completion of their 
work). 

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY 

Advancement to Candidacy. Candidates for the Doctor's degree must be 
admitted to candidacy not later than one academic year prior to the grant- 
ing of the degree. Applications for admission to candidacy for the Doctor's 
"degree must be deposited in the office of the Dean not later than October 1 
of the same year. 

Residence. Three years of full-time resident graduate study beyond the 
Bachelor's degree or two years beyond the Master's degree are required. The 

12 



first two of these years may be spent in other institutions offering standard 
graduate work. On a part-time basis the time needed will be correspond- 
ingly increased. The degree is not given merely as a certificate of residence 
and work, but is granted only upon sufficient evidence of high attainments in 
scholarship and ability to carry on independent research in the special field 
in which the major work is done. 

Major and Minor Subjects. The candidate must select a major and one or 
two closely related minor subjects. Thirty semester hours of minor work are 
required. The remainder of the required residence is devoted to intensive 
study and research in the major field. The amount of required course work 
in the major will vary with the subject and the individual candidate. 

Thesis. The ability to do independent research must be shown by a dis- 
sertation on some topic connected with the major subject. The original 
typewritten copy of the thesis, bound in a special cover obtained at the book 
store, must be deposited in the office of the Dean at least three weeks before 
the time the degree is granted. One or two extra unbound copies should 
be provided for use of members of the examining committee prior to 
the date of the final examination. The theses are printed in such form as the 
committee and the Dean may approve and fifty copies are deposited in the 
library. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is held before a committee 
appointed by the Dean. One member of this committee is a representative 
of the Graduate Faculty who is not directly concerned with the student's 
graduate work. One or more members of the committee may be persons 
from other institutions, who are distinguished scholars in the student's major 
field. 

The duration of the examination should be approximately three hours and 
should cover the research work of the candidate as embodied in his thesis, 
and his attainments in the fields of his major and minor subjects. The 
other detailed procedures are the same as those stated for the Master's 
examination. 



13 



RULES REGARDING CONDUCT OF LANGUAGE 
EXAMINATIONS FOR Ph.D. CANDIDATES 

1. Candidates for the doctor's degree are expected to possess a readinj? 
knowledge of French and German. In the examination they will be expected 
to read at sight from books or articles in their specialty. It is not expected 
that the candidate knows every single word of the text and the examiners 
will supply occasional foreign terms; but it is presumed that the student 
knows sufficient gi-ammar to recognize inflectional forms. 

2. The student is asked to bring books or periodicals to the amount of 
about 400-500 pages to the examination from which the examiners will select 
a number of paragraphs for the reading test. 

3. No penalty is attached to failure in the examination and the unsuccess- 
ful candidate is free to try again at the next date set for these tests. 

4. Graduate students expecting to take the examination are asked to 
register their name in the Graduate Office at least three days prior to the 
test. Examinations are held in the office of the Modei-n Language Depai't- 
ment on the first Wednesdays in February, June, and October at 2 P. M. 

GRADUATE FEES 

The fees paid by graduate students are as follows: 

A matriculation fee of $10.00. This is paid once only, upon 
admission to the Graduate School. 

A fixed charge, each semester at the rate of $1.50 per sem- 
ester credit hour, with a minimum charge of $6.00. 
A diploma fee of $10.00. 

FELLOWSHIPS AND GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS 

A number of fellowships and graduate assistantships have been established 
by the University. A few industrial fellowships are also available in certain 
departments. 

Applications for Fellowships and Graduate Assistantships. Application 
blanks are obtained at the office of the Dean of the Graduate School. All 
applications with the necessary credentials are sent by the applicant direct 
to the Dean not later than May 15. His endorsement assures the applicant 
of admission to the Graduate School in case he is awarded either a fellow- 
ship or a graduate assistantship. After the applications have been approved 
by the Dean they are sent to the heads of the departments concerned who 
make the selection and recommend to the proper administrative officer that 
the sticcessful applicants be appointed. All of the applications together with 
the credentials are then returned to the office of the Dean of the Graduate 
School. Those of the successful applicants properly endorsed are placed on 

14 



file for record. The credentials will be returned to the unsuccessful ap- 
plicants. 

Stipend. The University fellowships pay $500 and the appointment is for 
the academic year. In certain cases the term of appointment may be ex- 
tended to include one or two summer months in addition to the nine months 
of the academic year. 

The stipend for the industrial fellowships varies according to the type of 
fellowship. 

The stipend attached to the graduate assistantships is $1,000 per annum 
and the appointments are made for twelve months, with one month's va- 
cation. 

Service Requirements. Each University fellow is expected to give a 
limited portion of his time to instruction or perform equivalent duties pre- 
scribed by the major department. The usual maximum amount of service 
required is five hours per week of class-room work, or twelve hours of labo- 
ratory and other prescribed duties. No service is required of the industrial 
fellow other than research. The teaching graduate assistants devote one- 
half of their time to instruction. This is equivalent to about one-half of 
the load of a full-time instructor. Several research assistantships are offered 
by the Experiment Station and the only service required is in connection 
with research projects. Graduate students holding appointments as fellows 
or graduate assistants are exempt from all fees except the diploma fee. 

Residence Requirements for a Degree. Fellows may satisfy the residence 
requirements for either the Master's or Doctor's degree without extension 
of the usual time. 

The Graduate Assistants are required to spend two years in residence 
for the Master's degree, but for the Doctor's degree they are allowed two- 
thirds residence credit for each academic year at this University so that the 
minimum residence requirement from the Bachelor's degree may be satisfied 
in four academic years and one summer or three academic years and three 
summers of 11 to 12 weeks.
