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 and the 
Doctor's degree was undertaken. The faculty of the Graduate School includes 
all members of the various faculties who give instruction in approved grad- 
uate 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 
Washington 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 proximity of these libraries to College Park they are a valuable asset 
to research and graduate work at the University of Maryland. 

The 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 during the year. Students 
working in different departments have an opportunity to become acquainted 
with one another and thus profit by the cultural values derived from asso- 
ciation with persons working in different fields. 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 

ADMISSION 

Graduates from a recognized college regarded as standard by the insti- 
tution and by regional or general accrediting agencies are admitted to the 
Graduate School. The applicant shall present an official transcript of his 
collegiate record which for unconditional admission shall show creditable 
completion of an undergraduate major in the subject chosen for specializa- 
tion in the Graduate School. Any deficiencies may be made up in courses 
without credit toward a graduate degree. Special students who do not expect 
to become candidates for degrees are permitted to take such courses as in the 
opinion of the departments concerned they are prepared to pursue with 
profit. 

Application blanks for admission to the Graduate School are obtained 
from the office of the Dean. After approval of the application, a matricula- 
tion card, signed by the Dean, is issued to the student. This card permits 
one to register in the Graduate School. After payment of the fee, the 
matriculation card is stamped and returned. It is the student's certificate 
of membership in the Graduate School, and may be called for at any suc- 
ceeding 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, Agriculture Building. Students taking graduate work in the Sum- 
mer Session are also required to register in the Graduate School at the 
beginning of each session. In no case will graduate 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 arranged with 
the major department and 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 of- 
fice. 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 
fees 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 graduate courses without class cards. 
Course cards may be obtained at the Registrar's office or at the Dean's of- 
fice. 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 courses designated For Graduates 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. Students with inadequate preparation 
may be obliged to take some of these courses as prerequisites for advanced 
courses. No credit toward graduate degrees may be obtained by corre- 
spondence or extension study. 

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, which is arranged in cooperation with the instructors. To 
encourage thoroughness in scholarship through intensive application, gi-adu- 
ate students in the regular sessions are limited to a program of thirty 
credit hours for the year. 

SUMMER GRADUATE WORK 

Graduate work in the Summer Session may be counted as residence 
toward an advanced degree. By carrying approximately six semester hours 
of graduate work for four summer sessions and upon submitting a satis- 
factory thesis, a student 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. 

Upon recommendation by the head of the student's major department and 
with the approval of the Graduate Council, a maximum of six semester 
hours of graduate work done at other institutions of sufficiently high stand- 
ing may be substituted for required work here; such substitution does not 
shorten the required residence period. 

By special arrangement, graduate work may be pursued during the entire 
summer in some departments. Such students as graduate assistants, or 
others who may wish to supplement work done during the regular year, 
may satisfy one-third of an academic year's residence by full-time graduate 
work for eleven or twelve 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- 
cerning the Summer Session and the graduate courses offered therein. 
The bulletin is available upon application to the Registrar of the University. 

GRADUATE WORK IN PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS AT BALTIMORE 

Graduate courses and opportunities for research 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 students 
in other departments of the University. 

The graduate courses in the professional schools are listed on pages 69-75.

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. 

A senior of this University who has nearly completed the requirements 
for the undergraduate degree may, with the approval of his undergradliate 
dean and the Dean of the Graduate School, register in the undergraduate 
college for graduate courses, which may be transferred for graduate credit 
toward an advanced degree at this University, but the total of undergraduate 
and graduate courses must not exceed fifteen 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 be filed in the Dean's office before the application can be con- 
sidered. 

Admission to candidacy in no case assures the student of a degree, but 
merely signifies he 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. 

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

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 twelve semester course 
hours of graduate work have been completed, with an average grade of "B." 

Residence Requirements. Two semesters or four summer sessions may 
satisfy the residence requirements for the degree of Master of Arts or 
Master of Science. Inadequate preparation for the graduate courses the 
student wishes to pursue may make a longer period necessary. 

Course Requirements. A minimum of twenty-four semester hours in 
courses approved for graduate credit is required for the Master's degree. 
If the student is inadequately prepared for the required graduate courses, 
either in the major or minor subjects, additional courses may be required 
to supplement the undergraduate work. Not less than twelve semester 

10 



hours and not more than fifteen semester hours in graduate courses must be 
earned in the major subject. The remaining credits of the total of twenty- 
four hours required must be outside the major subject and must com- 
prise a group of coherent courses intended to supplement and support the 
major work. Not less than one-half of the total required course credits 
for the Master's degree must be selected from courses numbered 200 or 
above. The entire course of study must constitute a unified program ap- 
proved by the student's major adviser and by the Dean of the Graduate 
School. No credits that are reported with a grade lower than "C" are 
acceptable for an advanced degree. 

At least eighteen of the twenty-four semester coui'se 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 substi- 
tution 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 department, passes upon all graduate work done at 
other institutions. The final examination will cover all graduate work 
offered in fulfillment of the requirements for the degree. 

Thesis. In addition to the twenty-four semester hours in gi-aduate 
courses a satisfactory thesis is required of all candidates for the Master's 
degree. It must demonstrate the student's ability to do independent work 
and it must be acceptable in literary style and composition. It is assumed 
that the time devoted to thesis work will be not less than the equivalent 
of six semester hours earned in graduate courses. If the Master's thesis 
is based upon independent research the student may register in research 
courses in the amount prescribed by his department, but not more than four 
semester houi's of these can be included in the twenty-four semester hours 
required in gi'aduate courses for the Master's degree. With the approval 
of the student's major professor and the Dean of the Graduate School, the 
thesis in certain cases may be prepared in absentia under direction and 
super\'ision of a member of the faculty of this institution. 

The thesis should be typewritten, double spaced, on a good quality of 
paper 11 x 8% inches in size. The original copy must be deposited in the 
office of the Graduate School not later than two weeks before commence- 
ment. It should be held together with removable clamp, and placed in a 
manila or other durable folder, with the title and the name of the writer 
on the outside. Model for title page may be obtained at the office of the 
Graduate School. The thesis should not be stapled, as it is later bound by the 
University and placed in the University library. One or two additional 
carbon 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 the examining committee. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is conducted by a com- 
mittee appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student's adviser 
acts as the chairman of the committee. The other members of the commit- 

11 



tee are persons under whom the student has taken most of his major and 
minor courses. The chairman and the candidate are notified of the person- 
nel of the examining committee at least one week prior to the period set 
for oral examinations. 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 committee 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 be granted 
the degree sought. The period for the oral examination is usually 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 
opportunity 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 Doctor's 
degi'ee must be deposited in the office of the Dean not later than the first 
Wednesday in October of the academic year in which the degree is sought. 
The applicant must have obtained from the head of the Modem Language 
Department a statement that he possesses a reading knowledge of French 
and German. Preliminary examinations or such other substantial tests as 
the departments may elect are also required for admission to candidacy. 

Residence. Three years of full-time resident graduate study 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. 

Major and Minor Subjects. The candidate must select a major and one 
or two closely related minor subjects. Thirty semester holirs 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 
dissertation 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 commencement. 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 thesis is later printed in such form 

12 



as the committee and the Dean may approve, and fifty copies are deposited 
in the University library. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is held before a commit- 
tee appointed by the Dean. One member of this committee is a representa- 
tive 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 is approximately three hours, and covers 
the research work of the candidate as embodied in his thesis, and his attain- 
ments in the fields of his major and minor subjects. The other detailed 
procedures are the same as those stated for the Master's examination. 

RULES GOVERNING LANGUAGE EXAMINATIONS FOR DOCTOR 
OF PHILOSOPHY CANDIDATES 

1. Candidates for the Doctor's degree must show in a written examination 
that they possess a reading knowledge of French and German. The passages 
to be translated will be taken from books and articles in their specialized 
fields. It is not expected that the candidate recognize every word of the 
text, but it is presumed that he will know sufficient grammar to distinguish 
inflectional forms and that he will have a large enough vocabulary to give a 
good translation without the aid of a dictionary. 

2. Application for admission to these tests must be filed in the office of 
the Dean of the Graduate School at least ten days in advance of the tests 
and should be accompanied by some 500 pages of text from which the appli- 
cant wishes to have his examination chosen. 

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. Examinations are held in the Seminar room. Library building, 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 admis- 
sion to the Graduate School. 

A fixed charge, each semester, at the rate of $4.00 per semester 
credit hour. 

A diploma fee (Master-'s degree), $10.00, 

A graduation fee, including hood (Doctor's degree), $20,00. 

FELLOWSHIPS AND ASSISTANTSHIPS 

Fellowships. A number of fellowships have been established by the Uni- 
versity, A few industrial fellowships are also available in certain depart- 
ments. The stipend for University fellows is $400 for the academic year 
and the remission of all graduate fees except the diploma fee. 

13 



Application blanks for University fellowships may be obtained from the 
office of the Graduate School. The application, with the necessary creden- 
tials, is sent by the applicant directly to the Dean of the Graduate School. 

Fellows are required to render minor services prescribed by their major 
departments. The usual amount of service required does not exceed twelve 
clock hours per week. Fellows are permitted to carry a full graduate pro- 
gram, and they may satisfy the residence requirement for higher degrees 
in the normal time. 

The selection of fellows is made by the departments to which the fellow- 
ships are assigned, with the approval of the dean or director concerned, 
but all applications must first be approved by the Dean of the Graduate 
School. The awards of University fellowships are on a competitive basis. 

Teaching and Research Assistantships. A number of teaching and re- 
search assistantships are available in several departments. The stipend for 
assistantships varies with the services rendered, and the amount of gradu- 
ate work which an assistant is permitted to carry is determined by the 
head of the department, with the approval of the dean or director concerned. 

The compensation for each of a number of assistantships is $800 a year. 
The assistant in this class devotes one-half of his time to instruction or 
research in connection with Experiment Station projects, and he is reqtiired 
to spend two years in residence for the Master's degree. If he continues 
in residence for the Doctor's degree he is allowed two-thirds residence 
credit for each academic year at this University. The minimum residence 
requirement from the Bachelor's degree, therefore, may be satisfied in four 
academic years and one summer, or three academic years and three sum- 
mers of eleven or twelve weeks. 

No minimum residence requirement for a higher degree has been estab- 
lished for other assistants. The Graduate Council, guided by the recommen- 
dation of the student's advisory committee, prescribes the required residence 
in each individual case at the time the student is admitted to candidacy. 

All graduate fees except the diploma fee are remitted to all assistants, 
provided they are in full graduate status and are carrying programs leading 
directly to an academic higher degree. 

Further information regarding assistantships may be obtained from the 
departments or colleges concerned. 

COMMENCEMENT 

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

Application for diploma must be filed in the office of the Registrar before 
March 1 of the year in which the candidate expects to obtain a degree. 

Academic costume is required of all candidates at Commencement. Can- 
didates who so desire may purchase or rent caps and gowns at the Students' 
Supply Store. Order must be filed before March 20, but may be cancelled 
later if the student finds himself unable to complete his work for the degree.
