GENERAL INFORMATION 

HISTORY A>D ORGA>IZATIO> 

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 in- 
cludes all members of the various faculties who give instruction in ap- 
proved 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 Washington and thirty-two miles from Baltimore. Washing- 
ton, 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 li- 
braries 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. 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 
ADMISSION 

Graduates from recognized colleges 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 cred- 
itable completion of an undergraduate major in the subject chosen for 
specialization in the Graduate School. 

Application blanks for admission to the Graduate School are obtained 
from the office of the Dean. After approval of the application, a matricu- 
lation card, signed by the Dean, is issued to the student. This card per- 



mits one to register in the Graduate School. After payment of the fee, 
the matriculation card is stamped and returned. It is the student's certifi- 
cate of membership in the Graduate School, and may be called for at any 
succeeding registration. 

Admis.slon 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 in the 
Graduate School at the beginning of each semester. Students taking 
graduate work in the summer session are also required to register in the 
Graduate School at the beginning of each session. In no case will gradu- 
ate credit be given unless the student matriculates and registers in the 
Graduate School. Registration for the first semester is held in the 
Gymnasium-Armory on the date designated in the calendar. Students 
register for the second semester and for the summer session in the office 
of the Dean, T-214. Agriculture Building. A late registration fee will be 
charged to graduate students who register after October 5 and Febru- 
ary 5. The program of work for the semester or the summer session is 
arranged by the student with the major department and entered upon two 
course cards, which are signed first by the professor in charge of the 
s-.tudent's major subject and then by the Dean of the Graduate School. 
One card is retained by the Dean. The student takes the other card, and 
in case of a new student, also the matriculation card, to the Registrar's 
office, where the registration is completed. Students will not be admitted 
to graduate courses until the Registrar has certified to the instructor that 
registration has been completed. 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 
requirements 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. 

PR0GRA3I OF WORK 

The professor who is selected to direct a student's thesis work is the 
student's adviser in the formulation of a graduate program, including 
suitable minor work, which is arranged in cooperation with the in- 
structors. To encourage thoroughness in scholarship through intensive 
application, graduate students in the regular sessions are limited to a 
program of thirty credit hours for the year, including thesis work, which 
is valued at not less than six hours. 



SOIMER 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 at this institution, a 
student may fulfill the residence requirements for the master's degree, 
provided that the greater part of the thesis work can be done under direc- 
tion during the periods between summer sessions. In some instances a 
fifth summer of residence may be required in order that a satisfactory 
thesis may be completed. 

By special arrangement, graduate work may be pursued during the 
entire summer in some departments. Such students as graduate as- 
sistants, 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 Uni- 
versity. 

GRADUATE WORK IN PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS AT BALTDIORE 

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 
80-86. 

GRADUATE WORK BY SEMORS I> THIS UNIVERSITY 

Seniors who have completed all 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 mem- 
bership, 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 undergraduate 
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. Graduate credits earned during the senior year may not be 
used to shorten the residence period required for advanced degrees. 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY FOR ADVANCED DEGREES 

Application for admission to candidacy for the Master's and for 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 dupli- 
cate 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 institutions must be filed in the Dean's office before the applica- 
tion can be considered. 

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. 



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

Adyaiicement 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. An average grade 
of "B" in all major and minor subjects is required. 

Miiiiinum Residence. A residence of at least one full academic year, 
or its equivalent, at this institution, is required. 

Course Requirements. A minimum of twenty-four semester hours with 
an average "B" grade 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, addi- 
tional courses may be required to supplement the undergraduate work. 
Of the twenty-four hours required in graduate courses, not less than 
twelve semester hours and not more than sixteen semester hours must be 
earned in a major subject. The remaining credits must be outside the 
major subject and must comprise a group of coherent courses in- 
tended to supplement and support the major work. Not less than one- 
half of the total required course credits for the Master's degree, or a 
minimum of twelve, 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. 

Transfer of Credit. Credit, not to exceed six hours, obtained at other 
recognized institutions may be transferred and applied to the course re- 
quirements of the Master's degree, provided that the work was of graduate 
character, and provided that acceptance of the transferred credit does 
not reduce the minimum residence period of one academic year. The 
candidate is, however, subject to final examination by this institution in 
all work offered for the degree. 

10 



Thesis. In addition to the twenty-four semester hours in graduate 
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. With the approval of 
the student's major professor and the Dean of the Graduate School, the 
thesis in certain cases may he prepared iu (tbsoitia under direction and 
supervision of a member of the faculty of this institution. 

The original copy of the thesis must be deposited in the office of the 
Graduate School not later than two weeks before commencement. An ab- 
stract of the contents of the thesis, 200 to 250 words in length, must 
accompany it. A manual giving full directions for the physical make-up 
of the thesis is in the hands of each professor who directs thesis work, 
and should be consulted by the student before the typing of the manu- 
script is begun. Individual copies of this manual may be obtained by the 
student at the Dean's office at nominal cost. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is conducted by a com- 
mittee appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The student's ad- 
viser 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 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 ex- 
amination. 

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

REQULREJIENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY 

Adyancment to Candidacy. Candidates for the Doctor's degree must 
be admitted to candidacy not later than one academic year prior to the 
granting 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 
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 Modern 
Language Department a statement that he possesses a reading knowledge 
of French and German. Preliminary examinations or such other sub- 

11 



staiftial tests as the departments may elect are also required for admis- 
sion to candidacy. 

Residence. Three years of full-time resident graduate study are re- 
quired. The first two of the three years may be spent in other institu- 
tions 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. The minor work required varies 
from twenty-four to thirty hours at the discretion of the department con- 
cerned. 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 indi- 
vidual 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 and one clear carbon copy of the thesis, together with 
an abstract of the contents. 200 to 250 words in length, must be deposited 
in the office of the Dean at least three weeks before commencement. One 
or two extra copies of the thesis 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 as the committee and the Dean 
may approve, and fifty copies are deposited in the University library. 

A manual giving full directions for the physical make-up of the thesis 
is in the hands of each professor who directs thesis work, and should be 
consulted by the student before typing of the thesis is begun. Students 
may obtain copies of this manual at the Dean's office, at nominal cost. 

Final Examination. The final oral examination is held before a com- 
mitee appointed by the Dean. One member of this committee is a repre- 
sentative 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 
bis attainments in the fields of his major and minor subjects. The other 
detailed procedures are the same as those stated for the Master's exami- 
nation. 

RULES GOVERNING LANGUAGE EXAMINATIONS FOR CANDIDATES 
FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY. 

1. A candidate for the Doctor's degree must show in a written exami- 
nation that he possesses a reading knowledge of French and German. The 

12 



passages to be translated will be taken from books and articles in his 
specialized field. Some 500 pages of text from which the applicant 
wishes to have his examination chosen should be submitted to the head 
of the Department of Modern Languages at least three days before the 
examination. 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 Department of Modern Languages at least three days in advance 
of the tests. 

3. No penalty is attached to failure in the examination, and the un- 
.=uccessful candidate is free to try again at the next date set for these 

tests. 

4. Examinations are held in the office of the Department of Modern 
Languages, Arts and Sciences 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 
University. A few industrial fellowships are also available in certain 
departments. The stipend for the University fellows is $400 for the 
academic year and the remission of all graduate fees except the diploma 
fee. 

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 program, 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 fel- 
lowships are assigned, with the approval of the dean or director con- 
cerned, but all applications must first be approved by the Dean of the 
Graduate School. The awards of University fellowships are on a com- 
petitive basis. 

13 



Graduate Assistaiitsliips. A number of teaching and research graduate 
assistantships are available in several departments. The compensation, 
for these assistantships is $800 a year and the remission of all graduate 
fees except the diploma fee. Graduate assistants are appointed for one 
year and they are eligible to reappointment. The assistant in this class 
devotes one-half of his time to instruction or to research in connection 
with Experiment Station projects, and he is required 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 summer ses- 
sions of eleven or twelve weeks each. 

Other Assistants. Assistants not in the regular $800 class are fre- 
quently allowed to take graduate courses if they are eligible for admis- 
sion to the Graduate School. The stipend for these assistants varies with 
the services rendered, and it may or may not include the remission of 
graduate fees. The question of fees is decided in each individual case 
by the dean or director concerned when the stipend is arranged. The 
amount of graduate work these assistants are permitted to carry is de- 
termined by the head of the department, with the approval of the dean 
or director concerned. The Graduate Council, guided by the recommenda- 
tion of the student's advisory committee, prescribes the required resi- 
dence in each individual case at the time the student is admitted to 
candidacy. 

Further information regarding assistantships may be obtained from the 
department or college concerned. 



COMMENCEMENT 

Attendance is required at the commencement at which the degree is 
conferred, unless the candidate is excused by the Dean of the Faculty. 

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. 
Candidates 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.
