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 in- 
cludes all members of the various faculties who give instruction in approved 
graduate courses. The general administrative functions of the Graduate 
Faculty are delegated to a Graduate Council, of which the Dean of the Grad- 
uate School is chairman. 

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


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

The Professional Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry and 
Law are located in Baltimore at the corner of Lombard and Greene Streets. 


In addition to the resources 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 Maryland. 

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


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



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 pur- 
sue with profit the graduate courses desired. Application blanks for ad- 
mission to the Graduate School are obtained from the office of the Dean. 
After approval 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 fee, the matriculation card is 
stamped and returned to the student. It is the student's certificate of mem- 
bership in the Graduate School, and may be called for at any succeeding 

Admit^sion to the Graduate School does not necessarily imply admission to 
candidacy for an advanced degree. 


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 work for the semester or the summer session 
Is entered upon two course cards, which are signed first 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. iu case of a new student, also the matriculatitni 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 students must elect for credit in partial fulfillment of the require- 
ments for higher degrees, only those courses designated. For Graduates or For 
Giaduates and Adranced Undergraduates. Graduate students may elect 
courses numbered from 1 to 90 in the general catalogue but graduate credit 
will not be allowed for these courses. Students with inadequate preparation 
may be obliged to take some of these courses as prerequisites for advanced 



The professor who is selected to direct a student's thesis worlv is the stu- 
dent's adviser in the formulation of a graduate program including suitable 
minor work. This program receives the approval of the Dean by his en- 
dorsement of the student's course card. 

To encourage thoroughness in scholarship through intensive application, 
graduate students in the regular sessions taking courses carrying full grad- 
uate credit are limited to a program of thirty credit hours for the year. 
Students holding half-time gi'aduate assistantships are usually limited to six- 
teen credit hours for the year. Four or six additional credits may be al- 
lowed if six or more of the total constitute seminar and research work. 

Residence credit for all research work relating directly to the Master's or 
the 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 only re- 
search work under the direction of an official of the institution he must reg- 
ister 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. 


Graduate work in the Summer Session may be coiuited as residence toward 
an advanced degree. Four Summer Sessions may be accepted as satisfying 
the residence requirement for the Master's degree. By carrying approxi- 
mately six semester hours of graduate work for each of four sessions and 
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 re- 
quired in order to complete the thesis. Teachers and other graduate students 
working for a degree on the summer plan must meet the same requirements 
and proceed in the same way as do students enrolled in the other sessions of 
the University. 

A student who is 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, provided satisfactory 
supervision and facilities for summer work are available in the student's 

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 Regis- 
trar of the University. 


Graduate courses and opportunities for research work are offered in some 
of the professional schools at Baltimore. Students pursuing graduate work 
in the professional schools must register in the Graduate School and meet 


the same requirements and proceed in the same way as do graduate stu- 
dents in other departments of the University. 

Tlie graduate courses in the professional schools are listed on page 50. 


Seniors who have completed all of their undergraduate courses in this 
University by 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 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 University, but the total of undergraduate and grad- 
uate courses must not exceed 15 credits for the semester. 


Application for admission to candidacy for either the Master's or the 
Doctor's degree is 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 
Dean'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 Modern 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 must show superior scholarship by the type of 
graduate work already completed. Preliminary examinations or such other 
substantial tests as the departments elect are also required for admission 
to candidacy for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. 

Application for admission to candidacy is made at the time stated in the 
sections dealing with the requirements for the degree sought. 


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. 


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 always 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 
courses intended to supplement and support the major work. A minimum of 
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 included. The 
number of major credits allowed for thesis work will range from 6 to 10, 
depending upon the amount of work done aud upon the major course require- 
ments. The maximum total credit for the one hour per week seminar courses 
is limited to four semester hours in the major subject aud 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 exam- 
ination will cover all graduate work offered in fulfillment of the requirements 
for the degree. The Graduate Council, upon recommendation of the head of 
the major department, passes upon all graduate work accepted from other 
institutions. No credits are acceptable for au advanced degree that are re- 
ported 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 8i^ inches in size. The original copy must 
be deposited in the office of the Graduate School not later than two weeks 
before commencement. One or two additional copies should be provided for 
use of members of the examining committee prior to the final examination. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is conducted by a commit- 
tee appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student's adviser 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. Such a report is the basis upon which recommendation is 
made to the faculty that the candidate he granted the degree sought. 

The final examination is oral, but a previous written examination in 
courses of the semester immediately preceding the examination may be n^ 


quired at the option of the individual members of the committee. The period 
for the oral examination should be approximately 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. 


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 academic year in which the degree is sought. 

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 
first two of the three years may be spent in other institutions offering stand- 
ard 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 subject will vary with the department and the individual candi- 

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 must be deposited in the office of the Dean 
at least three weeks before the time the degree is granted. One or two extra 
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 de- 
posited in the library. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is held before a committee 
appointed by the Dean. One memlier 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. 



1. Candidates for the doctor's degree are exi^ected to possess a reading 
knowledge of French and German. In the examination tliey will be expected 
to read at sight from hooks or articles in their specialized fields. It is not ex- 
pected that the candidate know every single word of the text. The examiners 
will supply occasional foreign terms, but it is presumed that the student 
knows sufficient grammar to recognize inflectional forms. 

2. The student is asked to bring books or periodicals to the examination 
to the amount of about 40(t to oOO pages, from which the examiners will select a 
number of i)aragraphs 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 names in the Graduate School Office at least three days prior to 
the test. Examinations are held in the office of the Modern Language Depart- 
ment on the first Wednesdays in February, June, and October at 2 P. M. 


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 semester credit 
hour, with a minimum charge of $6.00. 

A diploma fee (master's degree), $10.00. 

Graduation fee. including hood (doctor's degree), $20.00. 


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

Applicsitions for Felloivships and Gradnate Assistantships. Application 
blanks may be obtained at the office of the Dean of the Graduate School. All 
applications with the necessai'y 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 successful applicants be appointed. All of the applications, together with 
the credentials, are then returned to the office of the Dean of the Graduate 


Si-hool. Those of the successful applicants properly endorsed fire placed on 
file for record. The credentials will be returned to the unsuccessful ap- 

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 

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. Graduate students holding appointments as fellows or graduate 
assistants are exempt from all fees except graduation fees. 

Service Keqnireinents. Each University fellow is expected to give a 
limited portion of his time to instruction or performing 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. 

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.

Anat. 203 s. Comparative Morphology of the Endocrine Glands (at least 2) 
— One lecture, two laboratory hours. 

With the aid of preparations the comparative anatomy, histology and 
cytology of the endocrines of the vertebrates, including man. are studied. 
In addition the student is required to make a number of preparations. 

It is intended to give the student appreciation of the structural basis of 


the physiological activity of the endocrine glands and of the gradual build- 
ing up of the endocrine system during phylogenetic development from the 
lower vertebrates to man, making it possible to see the variations in tha 
endocrines of higher vertebrates in the light of the phylogenetic potentiality 
of these organs. Dr. Uhlenhuth and Mr. Figge. 

Anat. 204 f and s. Advanced Endocrinology. (Credit and time dependent 
upon the student's qualifications.) 

A study of the morphological equivalent of function. By means of proper 
experimentation the morphological responses of the endocrines to extrinsic 
and intrinsic factors are examined. This course will lead the student toward 
work for the Ph.D. in Anatomy. Dr. Uhlenhuth.
