GENERAL INFORMATION 

HISTORY AND ORGANIZATION 

In the earlier years of the institution the Master's degi-ee 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 and the 
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 
Graduate School is chairman. 

LOCATION 

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

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

LIBRARIES 

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 ver>' valu- 
able 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 CLUB 

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



GENERAL REGULATIONS 

ADMISSION 

Graduates of colleges and universities of good standing ai'e 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 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 
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 
T-214, Agricultural Building. Students taking graduate work in the Sum- 
mer School are also required to register in the Graduate School at the 
beginning of each session. In no case will gi-aduate credit be given unless 
the student matriculates and registers in the Graduate School. The pro- 
gram 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, 
in case of a new student, 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 adjustment 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 grad- 
uate courses without class cards. Course cards may be obtained at the 
Registrar's office or at 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 Griuluates 
or For Graduates 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 
preparation 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 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 cariying full grad- 
uate credit are limited to a program of thirty credit hours for the year. 
Students holding half-time graduate assistantships are usually limited to 
sixteen 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 ci-edit 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 
research work 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 Suimner Session may be counted as residence 
toward an advanced degi'ee. Four summer sessions and six credits on thesis 
work done in absentia under direction 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, a student 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 that a satisfactory thesis may be completed. 

Graduate students who combine the summer and winter plans for the 
Master's degree are required to spend at least three full summers and one 
semester in residence. 

Students may transfer no more than six semester hours from another 
institution; such transfer does not shorten the required residence period. 

Graduate work may be pursued during the entire summer in some de- 
partments, by special arrangement. Such students as graduate assistants, 
or others who may wish to supplement work done during the regxilar year, 
may satisfy one-third of an academic year's residence by full-time graduate 
work for 11 or 12 weeks, provided satisfactory supervision and facilities 
for summer work are available in their special fields. 

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



GRADUATE WORK IN PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS AT BALTIMORE 

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, meet the 
same requirements, and proceed in the same way as do graduate students 
in other departments of the University. 

The graduate courses in the professional schools are listed on pages 53-58. 

GRADUATE WORK BY SENIORS IN THIS UNIVERSITY 

Seniors who have completed all their undergraduate courses in this Uni- 
versity 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 imdergraduate 
college for graduate courses, which ^vill be transferred for graduate credit 
toward a higher degree at this University, but the total of undergraduate 
and graduate courses must not exceed 15 credits for the semester. 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY FOR ADVANCED DEGREES 

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 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 the formal requirements 
and is considered by his instructors sufficiently prepared and able to pursue 
such graduate study and research as are 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 may 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. 

10 



REQUIREMENTS 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. 

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 ^\^shes 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 18 to 
20 credits must be earned in the major subject; and at least one-half of the 
total major credits, including thesis, must be taken in courses for graduates 
only. The number of major credits allowed for thesis ranges from 6 to 10, 
depending upon the amount of work done and upon the major course re- 
quirements. 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. The maximum total credit for the one hour per week seminar 
courses is limited to four semester hours in the major subject and to two 
semester hours in the minor subjects. No credits are acceptable for an 
advanced degree that are reported with a grade lower than "C". 

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 any such transfer of credits does not 
shorten the normal required residence at the University of Maryland. The 
Graduate Council, upon recommendation of the head of the major depart- 
ment, passes upon all graduate work done at other institutions. The final 
examination will cover all graduate work offered in fulfillment of the re- 
quirements for the degree. 

Work in accredited research laboratories of the United States Department 
of Agriculture and other local national research agencies may be accepted, 
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. 

Thesis. The thesis required for the Master's degree should be typewritten, 
double spaced, on a good quality of paper 11 x 8V^ inches in size. The 
original copy must be deposited in the office of the Graduate School not 
later than two weeks before commencement. 

It should be held together with removable clamp, and placed in a manila 
or other durable folder, with the title, and name of writer, on the outside. 

11 



The thesis should not be stapled together, as it is later bound by the Uni- 
versity and placed in the Library. One or two additional copies should be 
provided for use of members of the examining committee prior to the final 
examination. If the thesis contains extensive charts or graphs, it is not 
necessary to duplicate them in the carbon copies, as the official copy will 
be accessible to professors. 

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 
examination. The chairman of the committee selects the exact time and 
place for the examination and notifies the other members of the committee 
and the candidate. The examination should be conducted within the dates 
specified and a report of the examination sent to the Dean as soon as pos- 
sible 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 be 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 re- 
quired at the option of the individual members of the committee. The 
period for the oral examination is approximately one hour. 

The examining committee also approves the thesis, and it is the candi- 
date's obligation to see that each member of the committee has ample op- 
portunity to examine a copy of the thesis prior to the date of the exami- 
nation. 

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

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 Doc- 
tor'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 
standard graduate work. On a part-time basis the time needed will be 
correspondingly 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. 

12 



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 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 
type^\^^tten 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 later 
printed in such form as the committee and the Dean may approve and 
fifty copies are deposited in the librarj'. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is held before a com- 
mittee appointed by the Dean. One member of this committee is a repre- 
sentative of the Gradvxate 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 is approximately three hours and should 
cover the research work of the candidate as embodied in liis thesis, and his 
attainments in the fields of his major and minor subjects. The other de- 
tailed procedures are the same as those stated for the Master's examination. 

RULES GOVERNING LANGUAGE EXAMLNATIONS FOR DOCTOR 
OF PHILOSOPHY CANDIDATES 

1. Candidates for the Doctor's degree are expected to possess a reading 
knowledge of French and German. In the examination they will be expected 
to read at sight from books or articles in their specialized fields. It is not 
expected that the candidate know every single word of the text. The ex- 
aminers 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 23eriodicals to the examination 
to the amount of about 400 to 500 pages, 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 unsuc- 
cessful 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 Modem Language 
Department on the first Wednesdays in Febiiiari/, June, and October at 
2 p. m. 

13 



GRADUATE FEES 

The fees paid by graduate students are as follows: 

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

A fixed charge, each semester, at the rate of $1.50 per semester 
ci-edit hour, with a minimum charge of $6.00. 
A diploma fee (Master's degree), $10.00. 
Gradtiation fee, including hood (Doctor's degree), $20.00. 

FELLOWSHIPS AND GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS 

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

Applications for Fellowships and Graduate Assistantships. Application 
blanks may be obtained at the office of the Dean of the Graduate School. 
The application with the necessary credentials is sent by the applicant direct 
to the Dean not later than May 15. The Dean's endorsement assures the 
applicant of admission to the Graduate School in case he is awarded either 
a fellowship or a graduate assistantship. After the applications have been 
approved by the Dean they are sent to the heads of the departments con- 
cerned, who make the selection and recommend to the proper administrative 
officer that the successful applicants be appointed. All the applications, to- 
gether \vith the credentials, are then retui'ned to the office of the Graduate 
School. Those of the successful applicants, properly endorsed, are placed 
on file for record. The credentials will be retunied to the unsuccessful 
applicants. 

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

Service Requirements. Each University fellow is expected to give a 
limited portion of his time to instruction or equivalent duties prescribed by 
the major department. The usual maximum amount of service required is 
five hour's per week of class-room work or twelve hours of laboratory 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 

14 



of a, lull-time instructor. Several research assistantships are offered by 
the Experiment Station and the only ?er\'ice 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. 

Graduate assistants are recjuired to spend two year.~ 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. The minimum 
residence requirement from the Bachelor's degree, therefore, may be satis- 
fied in four academic years and one summer, or three academic years and 
three stimmers of 11 to 12 weeks. 

COMMENCEMENT 

Attendance is required at the commencement at which the degree is con- 
ferred, unless the candidate is excused by the Dean and the President of 
the University.
