Summer Sessions 



in addition to its regular fall and spring sessions, the College Park 
Campus offers two summer sessions of six weeks each year The dates of 
the summer sessions can be found in the printed Schedule of Classes ior 
the Summer Session and in the Academic Calendar New freshman appli- 
cants who have met the regular University admission requirements for fall 
enrollment may begin their studies during the summer rather than wait for 
the next fall term By taking advantage of this opportunity and continuing 
to attend summer sessions, the time required for completion of a bacca- 
laureate degree can be shortened by a year or more, depending upon the 
requirements of the chosen curriculum and the rate of progress 

Many new students have found that attendance during the summer 
sessions eases the transition from secondary school to college. Courses 
offered during the summer are the same in content and instruction as 
those offered during the fall and spring semesters 

The Summer Cultural and Recreational Program is an important part of 
"Summer at Maryland " The Maryland Summer Institute for the Creative 
and Performing Arts offers a series of programs in art, dance, drama, film, 
and music, and outstanding performers in these media appear on the 
College Park Campus Facilities for most sports and an intramural pro- 
gram in several team and individual sports are available to the students

may be obtained from the Administrative Dean for Summer Programs, The

The University of Maryland 
College Park 

Our objectives are simply stated to enricli our students; to encourage 
them to develop the harmonious Ideals and fine relationships that charac- 
terize cultured individuals, to provide an atmosphere lor self-enlighten- 
meni and community service; and to promote beneficial research for the 
welfare of the State, of the Nation and of the community of knowledge 
everywhere. 

History 

The University began in Baltimore in 1807 as a faculty-owned College 
of Ivtedicine. which granted the t\^ D degree Five years later, more 
degrees were added when the College was renamed The University of 
tvlaryland The first dental school in America, the Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery, became a part of the University in 1840 Later, the Univer- 
sity opened schools of pharmacy, law and nursing 

The present form of The University of Marylanddates bacl< to a 1920 
act of the State legislature joining the State owned institution at College 
Park with the professional schools in Baltimore The move created The 
University of Maryland College Park (UtvlCP) and The University of Mary- 
land at Baltimore (UMAB) Three other campuses have since been added: 
Baltimore County (UMBC) in Catonsville: Eastern Shore (UMES) in Prin- 
cess Anne and the worldwide University College (UMUC). headquarters 
in College Park 

The College Park Campus 

The College Park campus opened in 1859 under a charter secured in 
1856 by a group of Maryland planters. Then called the Maryland Agricul- 
tural College, it became one of the original land-grant schools in 1865, 
After a disastrous fire in 1912. the State acquired control of the College

vigor from a faculty comprised of internationally recognized scholars and 
scientists It is an advantage tor undergraduate students to be aware of 
the University's research facilities as they plan their programs. 

Among the exceptional research facilities on the campus are a com- 
puter vision laboratory; a scale model nuclear reactor for research and 
training; a full-scale low velocity wind tunnel, several smaller hypersonic 
helium wind tunnels; a 500 liter computer-controlled fermentation system 
for research in bioprocess scale-up programs, computer-assisted carto- 
graphic laboratories, the Center for Automation Research, a comfort per- 
ception laboratory; a quiescent plasma device (0 machine) for plasma 
research; satellite remote electron microscopes, laboratories for radiation 
and biochemical reaction research; complete laboratories for the dynamic 
studies of soils and soil structure, a photomechanics lab, a precision 
encoder and pattern recognition device; a psychopharmacology labora- 
tory; rotating tanks for laboratory studies of meteorological phenomena, 
computer simulation and gaming facilities; specialized sound chambers

are selected on the basis of high school records, standardized test 
scores, personal achievements, and other evidences of ability and motiva- 
tion Undergraduates already on campus, majoring in any department or 
college, and transfer students are also encouraged to apply for admission 
Departmental Honors Programs usually begin in the junior year, though 
some start earlier 

Students who successfully complete the Honors curriculum graduate 
with a citation in General or Departmental Honors, or both. For information 
about Departmental Programs, students should contact the department;

Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

Organized in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely 
respected academic honorary society in the United States Only twelve 
percent of American colleges and universities have been granted chap- 
ters and thus can elect their graduates to membership 

Invitation to membership is based on outstanding scholastic achieve- 
ment in studies of the liberal arts and sciences Student members are 
chosen entirely on the basis of academic excellence: neither extra-curricu- 
lar leadership nor service to the community is considered Election is held 
only once a year, in the spring semester 

New members are nominated by a committee of six faculty members 
who represent in equal number the natural sciences, the social sciences, 
and the humanities Final election to membership is by vote of the resident 
members of the University of Maryland Gamma Chapter (that is, faculty 
members who are members of Phi Beta Kappa) 

Requirements for consideration include the following 
1 . Residence. At least half the credit hours required for graduation must 

be taken at The University of Maryland College Park 
2 Liberal Courses. Three-fourths of the hours required for graduation 
(i e . ninety hours) must be in liberal arts or liberal sciences Liberal 
courses means courses that are theoretical and academic, not pro- 
fessional or technical 
3, Required Courses. One semester of mathematics and two semes- 
ters of the elementary level of one foreign language are required 
unless equivalent knowledge is shown through examination. 



4 Grade Point Average. The senior student must have attained a 
grade point average of at least 3 5 in all the liberal courses taken 

5 Distribution of Courses. The credit hours presented for graduation 
must be more evenly distributed among the natural sciences, the 
social sciences, and the humanities than the University requires (or 
graduation Minimal qualifications in more than one area may pre- 
clude election Students with strong courses, broad distribution, and 
moderately high grade point averages are preferred to those with a 
very high grade point average in a narrow range of courses 

At least one laboratory course in the natural sciences is desirable 
Harder courses will count more than easy ones and regular grades 
are preferable to pass/tail In the social sciences and the humanities, 
some traditional courses that require reading books and writino 
papers are expected Internships may tDe counted as professionar 
rather than liberal, courses 

6 Junior Election. A very small number of students are elected at the 
end of their junior year instead of the semester in which they are 
graduated They must have at least a 3 75 grade point average, and 
fulfill the same distribution requirements as seniors 

Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee election to Phi 
Beta Kappa. The judgment of the Committee on the quality, depth, 
and breadth of the student's record Is the deciding factor In every 
case. 

Students who are in doubt about equivalency examinations in math 
and foreign language or about what courses are counted as liberal should 
visit the Phi Beta Kappa Office, Room 2126, South Administration Build- 
ing, or telephone 454-5439 

Commencement Honors 

Honors for excellence in scholarship are determined by the highest 
two percent (Summa cum Laude), the next three percent (Magna cum 
Laude). and the following five percent (cum Laude) of the students of the 
preceding three commencements of each degree-granting unit To be 
eligible for this recognition, a total of at least sixty semester credits earned 
at The University of Maryland is required Of these sixty credits, at least 
thirty credits must have been earned at the College Park Campus The 
computation of the cumulative grade point average does not include 
grades for courses taken during the last semester of registration tsefore 
graduation, although the hours earned for that semester will apply toward 
the sixty-hour requirement No student with a grade point average less 
than 3 (XX) will be considered

Requirements 



Admission Requirements for 
Undergraduates 

Fall 1988 and Spring 1989 

The University ol Maryland is a publicly-supported land grant institution 
dedicated primarily to the educational needs of Maryland residents Within 
Its responsibilities as a State facility, the University attracts a cosmopolitan 
student body and each year offers admission to a number of promising 
men and women from other states and |urisdictions Currently, fifty states. 
the District of Columbia, two territories, and 100 foreign countries are 
represented in the undergraduate population Admissions policies for the 
upcoming semesters are determined by the Board of Regents 

Freshman Admissions Criteria: 

The University of Maryland College Park seeks to enroll students who 
demonstrate the potential for academic success That potential is typically 
assessed by examination of high school course work and SAT scores In 
general, all entering students should have completed four years of high 
school English: three years of history or social science, two years of sci- 
ence, both of which will involve laboratory work; and three years of mathe- 
matics courses equivalent at least to Algebra I, Algebra II, and Plane 
Geometry 

The University maintains a competitive admissions policy, with priority 
given to those students with the most outstanding academic credentials 

While SAT's and GPA's play an important role in the admissions pro- 
cess, they are not the sole determining factor in determining a candidate's 
admissibility The Admissions Committee, in some instances, will review a 
student in light of his or her unique talents and abilities. Students with 
accomplishments in other realms, eg,, fine arts, leadership, athletics, 
should make this information available to the Admissions Office 

To help you evaluate your chances for admission to the College Park 
Campus, a profile of students enrolled in the fall 1987 freshman class is 
provided

Transfer Admission Requirements 

A student who has attended any regionally accredited institution of 
higher learning following graduation from high school and attempted nine 
or more credits must be considered for admission as a transfer student In 
calculating eligibility, the University will use the average stated on the 
transcnpt by the sending institution When an applicant has attended more 
than one institution, a cumulative average for all previous college work 
attempted will be used Transfer applicants must be in good academic and 
disciplinary standing at their previous Institutions to be eligible for possible 
transfer to the College Park Campus 

Where the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number 
that can be accommodated in a particular professional or specialized 
program, admission will be based on criteria developed by the University to 
select the best qualified students 

Requirements 

Admission for transfer applicants is primarily based on the number of 
credits a student has earned and the cumulative grade point average for all 
college level work To be considered, course work must have been com- 
pleted at a regionally accredited college or university The grade point 
average requirement can vary, depending on the availability of space. 
Generally, however, students should have earned at least 2 5 on a 4.0 
scale, and have completed 28 semester hours by the time of enrollment on 
the College Park Campus A student whose average falls between 2 and 
2.5 will receive consideration on a space-available basis In accordance 
with Maryland State Board for Higher Education transfer policies, appli- 
cants from Maryland community colleges are. in some instances, given 
special consideration, and. when qualified, can be admitted with a cumula- 
tive grade point average of 2 or better 

Those Not Admissible as High School Seniors. Students who were not 
admissible as high school seniors must complete at least twenty-eight 
semester hours with the grade point average as stated above 

Undergraduate Students Transferring from Within 
tiie University System

20 Admission Requirements for Undergraduates 



Maryland Public Colleges and Universities. Transfer of coursework com- 
pleted at Maryland public colleges and universities is covered by the 
Maryland State Board for Higher Education Transfer Policies 

Community College Articulated Programs. An articulated transfer program 
is a list of community college courses tfiat best prepare tfie applicant for a 
particular course of study at College Park If the applicant takes appropri- 
ate courses that are specified in the articulated program guide, and earns 
an acceptable grade, he'she is guaranteed transfer with no loss of credit 
Articulated career program guides help students plan their new pro- 

grams after changing career objectives. The guides are available at the 
iffice of Undergraduate Admissions on the College Park Campus and in 
the transfer advisor's office at each of the community colleges If the 
applicant checks this guide he/she can eliminate all doubt concerning 
transfer of courses by following a program outlined in the guide 

University o( Maryland System. Credits and grades for undergraduate 
courses will transfer to the College Park Campus from other University of 
Maryland campuses The applicability of these courses to the particular 
program chosen at College Park will be determined by an academic advi- 
sor/evaluator In the office of the dean (see section on Orientation Pro- 
grams, below). 

Other Universities and Colleges. In most cases credit will transfer from 
institutions of higher education accredited by a regional accrediting asso- 
ciation (le.. Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, New 
England Association of Schools and Colleges, North Central Association of 
Colleges and Schools: Northwest Association of Colleges and Schools; 
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Western Association of 
Colleges and Schools), provided that the course is completed with at least 
a grade of C and the course is similar in content and level to work offered at 
College Park The applicability of these courses to the particular course of 
study chosen at College Park will be determined by an academic advisor/ 
evaluator in the office of the appropriate dean 

Foreign Language Credit. Transfer of foreign language credit is usually 
acceptable in meeting requirements Prospective students should consult 
the appropriate sections of this catalog to determine the specific require- 
ments of various colleges and curncula 

Advanced Placement Credit. If Advanced Placement credits are already 
on a student record from an institution outside The University of Maryland 
System, the score must be equivalent to a minimum University score or the 
credit will not be considered for transfer 

State Board for Higher Education Transfer 
Policies 

The University of Maryland fully subscribes to the Maryland State Board 
for Higher Education Transfer Policies A complete text of the policy 
follows 

These Student Transfer Policies, developed by a special task force 
of ttie Segmental Advisory Committee, were adopted by the Maryland 
State Board for Higher Education on November 1, 1979. In view of the 
Board's sensitivity to the need of the institutions and segment boards 
to have sufficient lead time to make these policies operational, the new 
policies shall be effective and applicable to students enrolling in Mary- 
land's public postsecondary education institutions in fall, 1980. and 
thereafter At that time they will supersede SBHE student transfer 
policies in effect since 1972. 

Preamble 

The ma|or objective of these policies is to relate in operational ways the 
undergraduate programs offered in the public sector of higher education in 
Maryland These policies aim at equal treatment of native and transfer 
students The effectiveness of these policies, since their promulgation in 
December 1972, has been confirmed by the minimal loss of credits exper- 
ienced by students transferring within the public sector, by the apparent 
satisfaction of these students, and by the absence of appeals concerning 
the transferring of credits 

The intended principal benefactor is the student, who is best served by 
current information about programs and protected by firm arrangements 
among the public segments of higher education in Maryland that permit 
him to plan a total degree program from the outset With successful aca- 
demic performance, he or she can make uninterrupted progress even 
though transfer is involved The measures of the effectiveness of the plan 
is maximum transferability of college level credits within the parameters of 
this agreement Essentially, transfer and native students are to be gov- 
erned by the same academic rules and regulations 

In a complementary way the State's interests are served by having its 
higher education resources used optimally by reducing the lime taken to 
complete a degree through the avoidance of repeated class experience. 

The institutional interests are protected also by the systematic 
approach, institutions are relieved of the uncertainties of unplanned articu- 
lation without becoming production line enterpnses. 



The dynamics of higher education preclude one-and-for-all lime curric 
ula and perpetual grading and retention systems However, within the 
general structure of this plan there is opportunity for continual updating of 
the details 

In more specific ways this document s purpose is (1) to recommend 
specific areas of agreement among the public two year and four year 
institutions of higher education pertaining to facilitating the transfer of 
students within these segments. (2) to provide for a continuous evaluation 
and review of programs, policies, procedures, and relationships affecting 
transfer of students. (3) to recommend such revisions as are needed to 
promote the academic success and general well-being of the transfer 
student: and (4) to provide a systenn for appeals 



Policies

Associate in Arts degree or who have successfully completed fifty- 
six hours of credit with an overall 2 average in college and univer- 
sity parallel courses in either case shall not be denied transfer to an 
institution If the number of students desiring admission exceeds 
the number that can be accommodated in a particular professional

International Students 

General Requirements. The University of Maryland values the contribu- 
tion international students make to the College Park community Therefore, 
applications from the international community are welcomed However, 
due to the differences between foreign educational systems and education 
in the United States, international students will face a number of chal- 
lenges in adapting to study at the University Students who have received, 
throughout their secondary school and university level work, marks or 
examination results considered to be "very good" to "excellent" are those 
who are most likely to succeed at our institution Admission for interna- 
tional students is competitive and offered only to those who are considered 
by the University to be better than average in their own educational setting 
Students also have to demonstrate, in their secondary level studies, that 
they have successfully completed a diversity of subjects representing 
language, mathematics, physical or biological science and social sciences. 
Because of the keen competition at The University of Maryland, we sug- 
gest applicants apply early

be admitted on the basis of their academic backgrounds and must present 
records with marks of "very good" to "excellent" However, non-immi- 
grants, other than F or J visa holders, who have completed four years of 
US secondary education (grades 9 through 12). will be evaluated on the 
same basis as US Citizens and Permanent Residents/Immigrants, Interna- 
tional applicants who present one full year of acceptable university level 
credit will be considered for admission as transfer students Those with 
less than one full year of acceptable credit must also meet the freshman 
admission requirements for international applicants

screening board shall not serve on a college hearing board 
during the same year, except that alternative members may 
serve on a hearing board other than one considering a case in 
which the member had previously been involved in the screen- 
ing process. A member of the college screening board shall not 
review a grievance arising out of his/her own department or 
program, in such instance, an alternative member shall serve in 
his/her place 
b Upon receipt of the names of the faculty members designated 
by each college council and the students designated by the 
administrative council, the Administrative Dean for Undergrad- 
uate Studies shall appoint a five-member screening board to 
review grievances arising within the academic units under his/

Procedures for Review of Alleged Arbitrary and 
Capricious Grading 

Approved by Board of Regents: March 12, 1982 

Purpose 

1 The following procedures are designed to provide a means for under- 
graduate students to seek review of final course grades alleged to be 
arbitrary and capricious. Before tiling a formal appeal, students are 
urged to resolve grievances informally with the instructor and/or the 
administrator of the academic unit offenng the course. Students who 
file a written appeal under the following procedures shall be expected 
to abide by the final disposition of the appeal, as provided in part 
seven, and shall be precluded from seeking review of the matter under 
any other procedure within the University. 

Definitions 

2. When used in these procedures 



(a) the term "arbitrary and capricious" grading means i) the assign- 
ment of a course grade to a student on some basis other than 
performance in the course, or ii) the assignment of a course grade 
to a student by resorting to unreasonable standards different from 
those which were applied to other students in that course, or in) the 
assignment of a course grade by a substantial, unreasonable and 
unannounced departure from the instructor's previously articu- 
lated standards 

(b) the words "Day" or "Days" refer to working days at the University, 
excluding Saturdays, Sundays and University holidays 

(c) the word "administrator" is defined as the administrative head of 
the academic unit offering the course 

Procedures 

3 A student who believes his/her final grade in a course is improper and 
the result of arbitrary and capricious grading should first confer 
promptly with the instructor of the course If the instructor has left the 
University or is on approved academic leave or cannot be reached by 
the student after a reasonable effort, the student shall consult with the 
administrator If the student and the instructor or administrator are 
unable to arrive at a mutually agreeable solution, the student may file 
an appeal within twenty days after the first day of instruction of the 
next semester (excluding summer terms) to a standing committee 
consisting of three tenured faculty members of the academic unit 
offering the course If the instructor of the course is a member of the 
committee, that instructor shall be disqualified and replaced by a 
tenured faculty member selected by the administrator 

4 The student shall file an appeal by submitting to the committee a 
written statement detailing the basis for the allegation that a grade 
was improper and the result of arbitrary and capricious grading, and 
presenting relevant evidence The appeal shall be dismissed if: i) the 
student has submitted the same, or substantially the same, complaint 
to any other formal grievance procedure, ii) the allegations, even if 
true, would not constitute arbitrary and capricious grading; in) the 
appeal was not timely: or iv) the student has not conferred with the 
instructor or with the instructor's immediate administrative supervisor, 
in accordance with part three of these procedures 

5 If the appeal is not dismissed, the committee shall submit a copy of the 
student's wntten statement to the instructor with a request for a 
prompt written reply. If it then appears that the dispute may be 
resolved without recourse to the procedures specified in part six, the 
committee will attempt to arrange a mutually agreeable solution 

6 If a mutually agreeable solution is not achieved, the committee shall 
proceed to hold an informal, nonadversanal fact-finding meeting con- 
cerning the allegations. Both the student and the instructor shall be 
entitled to be present throughout this meeting and to present any 
relevant evidence, except that the student shall not be present dunng 
the discussion of any other student. Neither the student nor the faculty 
member shall be accompanied by an advocate or representative. The 
meeting shall not be open to the public. 

7 The committee shall deliberate privately at the close of the fact-finding 
meeting. If a maprity of the committee finds the allegation supported 
by clear and convincing evidence, the committee shall take any action 
which they feel would bring about substantial justice, including, but 
not limited to: i) directing the instructor to grade the student's work 
anew, or li) directing the instructor to administer a new final examina- 
tion or paper in the course, or iii) directing the cancellation of the 
student's registration in the course, or iv) directing the award of a 
grade of "pass " in the course, except that such a remedy should be 
used only if no other reasonable alternative is available The committee 
is not authorized to award a letter grade or to reprimand or otherwise 
take disciplinary action against the instructor The decision of the 
committee shall be final and shall be promptly reported in writing to the 
parties. The administrator of the academic unit shall be responsible for 
implementing the decision of the committee 



The University Studies Program 

Virtually all American colleges and universities ask that students receiv- 
ing a baccalaureate degree complete a common set of requirements 
These common requirements are usually referred to by the generic term 
"general education." General education requirements represent a 
faculty's definition of the knowledge, awarenesses and skills that all gradu- 
ates should possess before that faculty will give its consent to the award- 
ing of a degree General education is that portion of the degree require- 
ments in which the entire faculty has a concern 

The University Studies Program is the set of general education require- 
ments at the University of Maryland, College Park These requirements are 
effective for students entenng in May, 1980, and thereafter with eight or 
fewer credits from this or any other college. They are intended to provide 
students with the intellectual skills and conceptual background basic to an 
understanding of the universe, society and themselves The focus is not on 
any particular bodies of knowledge, for almost any subject matter can lead 



40 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



to an awareness of general modes of understanding ttie world Thus, for 
example, it does not matter wtiethier the student studies physics or botany 
as long as he or she comes away from the course with some understanding 
of the power of the empirical investigation that characterizes science. 

The University Studies Program has three parts The "Fundamental 
Studies' section of the program is intended to establish the student's 
ability to participate In the discourse of the university through demon- 
strated mastery of written English and mathematics Those requirements 
are to be completed early in the student's program in order to serve as a 
foundation for subsequent work 

The "Distnbutive Studies ' requirement is intended, through study in 
particular disciplines, to acquaint students with the different ways of ana- 
lyzing and talking about the world that characterize the three areas into 
which the university's knowledge is traditionally divided: the physical and 
biological sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, and the arts and 
humanities The fourth category, "History and Culture, " includes courses 
that lead to the consideration of historical and cultural differences and the 
relationship of our own society to those of other times and places 

In fulfilling "Distributive Studies" requirements, students will have 
gained some experience of the way in which scholars in different kinds of 
disciplines make and organize observations about the world and arrive at 
general statements It is the purpose of "Advanced Studies" courses to 
show how these different intellectual approaches compare with each other 
or may be used in complementary ways to analyze and solve problems 
"Development of Knowledge" courses deal with the basis upon which 
people who use these different approaches claim to know something and 
the different kinds of insights to which these intellectual strategies lead, 
"Analysis of Human Problems " courses consider these matters in terms of 
specific cultural, social, scientific or aesthetic problems which may be 
approached from several points of view. 

The University Studies requirements, designed to be spread through- 
out the students four years, represent a third of the total academic work 
required for graduation It is the purpose of this program, in combination 
with the extensive work of the major, to help prepare students to become 
productive, aware and sensitive members of society, capable of under- 
standing their world and the many kinds of people in it and of taking 
responsibility for their own decisions and their own lives. 

For a more specific outline of the program requirements and the 
approved courses which may be selected to meet those requirements, see 
Part 4 of this catalog, entitled University Studies Program 



General University Requirements 

Students who completed at least nine credits at any college prior to 
May. 1980, may elect to complete these requirements rather than the 
University Studies Program requirements (see above) 

The General University requirements consist of thirty semester hours of 
credit distributed among the three areas listed below At least six hours 
must be taken in each area. At least nine of the thirty hours must be taken 
at the 300 level or above None of the thirty hours may be counted toward 
published departmental or college requirements for a degree Area A: six 
to twelve hours elected in the Colleges of. Agriculture, Life Sciences: 
Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences; and Engineering. Area B; 
six to twelve hours In the Colleges of Behavioral and Social Sciences and of 
Human Ecology. Area C six to twelve hours in the College of Arts and 
Humanities. 

In meeting these area requirements, students may choose from among 
any undergraduate courses for which they are qualified The students may 
select either the pass-fail or letter grading option for these courses as 
outlined on page 43 Students are urged to consult with academic advisors 
for guidance in determining which courses in each area best fit individual 
needs and interests 

Demonstration of competency in English composition: unless the stu- 
dent has been exempted from English composition, at least one course in 
the subject will be required Exemption is granted if the student earns an 
acceptable score on the SAT Verbal (score announced annually) or an 
acceptable score on the English Advanced Placement Test (score 
announced annually), or by satisfactory completion of a similar writing 
course at another institution. 

Students taking a course to satisfy this requirement may apply the 
credits toward the thirty-hour General University Requirement but may not 
count these credits toward the satisfaction of the minimum six-hour 
requirement in any of the three designated areas or the nine-credit upper 
division requirement Credit for such a course may be in addition to the 
twelve-hour maximum in any area 

NOTE: Students who began baccalaureate study after May. 1978. must 
complete the English composition requirement specified in the Fundamen- 
tal Studies section of the University Studies Program (see above). Only 
three hours of this six hour requirement may be used to satisfy General 
University Requirements 

Students who entered the University prior to June. 1973. have the 
option of completing requirements under the former General Education 
Program rather than the new General University Requirements Each stu 
dent is responsible for making certain that the various provisions of either 



set of requirements have been satisfied prior to certification for the degree 
Assistance and advice may be obtained from the academic advisor or the 
Office of the Administrative Dean for Undergraduate Studies 

Degrees and Certificates 

The College Park Campus awards the following degrees Bachelor of 
Architecture. Bachelor of Arts. Bachelor of General Studies, Bachelor of 
Music. Bachelor of Science. Master of Applied Anthropology. Master of

Students in specified two-year curricula may be awarded certificates. 

The requirements for graduation vary according to the character of 
work in the different colleges and schools Full information regarding spe- 
cific college requirements for graduation will be found in Part 3 of this 
catalog 

Each candidate for a degree or certificate must file a formal application 
for it with the Office of Records & Registrations This must be done by the 
deadline published in the Schedule of Classes for the semester of 
graduation. 

Degree Requirements 

It IS the responsibility of departments, colleges, or appropriate aca- 
demic units to establish and putjiish clearly defined degree requirements 
Responsibility for knowing and meeting all degree requirements for gradu- 
ation in any curriculum rests with the student. For requirements estab- 
lished by specific colleges, departments, or other academic units, the 
student is referred to the appropriate descriptions in Part 3 of this catalog 

Each student should check with the proper academic authonties no 
later than the close of the )unior year to ascertain his or her standing with 
respect to advancement toward a degree For this purpose, each student 
should t>e sure to retain a copy of the semester grade reports issued by the 
Office of Records and Registrations at the close of each semester 

Second Degrees 

a Second Degree Taken Sequentially. A student who has completed 
requirements for and has received one baccalaureate degree and who 
wishes to earn a second baccalaureate degree from College Park 
must satisfactorily complete the requirements of the second degree 
and enough additional credits so that the total, including all applicable 
credits earned at College Park or elsewhere, is at least 150 credits In 
no case, however, will a second baccalaureate degree be awarded to 
a student who has not completed thirty credit hours in residence at 
College Park Approval of the second degree will not be granted when 
there is extensive overlap between the two programs 

b Second Degree Taken Simultaneously. A student who wishes to 
receive simultaneously two baccalaureate degrees from College Park 
must satisfactonly complete a minimum of 193 credits (180 credits if 
one of the degrees is in Special Education) The regularly prescribed 
requirements of both degree programs must be completed As early 
as possible and. in any case, no later than the t)eginning of the second 
semester t>efore the expected date of graduation, the student must 
file with the departments or programs involved, as well as with the 
appropriate Deans, formal programs showing the courses to be 
offered to meet the major. suppxDrting area, college, and University 
Studies Program or General University Requirements If two colleges 
are involved in the double degree program, the student must desig- 
nate which college is responsible for the maintenance of records 
Approval of the second degree will not be granted when there is 
extensive overlap between the two programs 



Graduation Requirements 

Credit Requirements (or Graduation 

While several undergraduate curricula require more than 120 credits. 
no baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120 No baccalaureate 
degree will be awarded in instances in which fewer than 120 credit hours 
have been earned It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize 
himself or herself with the requirements of specific curriculum The student 
is urged to seek advice on these matters from the departments, colleges, 
or the Office of Undergraduate Studies 

To earn a baccalaureate degree from College Park, a minimum of thirty 
credits must be taken in residence at the College Park Campus Nothirig 
stated t)elow modifies this basic requirement in any way 

Grade Point Average 

An overall C (2 00) grade point average is required for graduation in all 
curricula 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 41 



Off-Campus Courses 

Courses taken at another campus o1 The Un{versity of Ivlaryland or at 
another institution concurrent with regular registration on the College Park 
Campus may not be credited toward a College Park degree without 
advance approval by the dean of the college from which the student 
expects to receive a degree For students not registered in any college, the 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally 
delegated to the dean of the college in which the student is registered The 
same applies to off -campus registration in the summer program of another 
institution Permission to enroll in off-campus courses must be requested 
for any course which will eventually be added to the College Park 
transcript 

Residency Requirements — Final Thirty-Hour Rule 

a All candidates for College Park degrees should plan to take their final 
thirty credits in residence since the advanced work of their major study 
normally occurs in the last year of the undergraduate program 
Included in these thirty semester hours will be a minimum of fifteen 
semester hours In courses numbered 300 or above, including at least 
twelve semester hours required in the major field (in curncula requiring 
such concentrations) 

b A student who at the time of graduation will have completed thirty 
hours in residence at College Park may, under unusual circumstances, 
be permitted to take a maximum of six of the final thirty credits of 
record at another institution In such cases, written permission must 
be obtained in advance from the dean of the academic unit from which 
the student expects to receive the degree, 

c. For students in the combined three-year, preprofessional programs, 
the final thirty hours of the ninety-hour program taken at College Park 
must be taken in residence 



Enrollment in Majors 

a A student must be enrolled in the major program from which he or she 
plans to graduate, when registering for the final fifteen hours of the 
baccalaureate program. This requirement also applies to the third year 
of the combined, preprofessional degree programs 

b. A student who wishes to complete a second major in addition to his or 
her pnmary major of record must obtain written permission in advance 
from the appropriate deans As early as possible, but in no case later 
than the beginning of the second semester before the expected date 
of graduation, the student must file with the departments or programs 
involved and with the appropriate deans, formal programs showing the 
courses to be offered to meet requirements in each of the majors and 
supporting areas as well as ttie college and General University 
Requirements or University Studies Program requirements Approval 
will not be granted if there is extensive overlap between the two 
programs Students enrolled in two majors simultaneously must satis- 
factorily complete the regularly prescnbed requirements for each of 
the programs Courses taKen for one major may be counted as part of 
the degree requirements for the other and toward the requirements for 
the University Studies Program However, no course used in either 
curriculum to satisfy a major, supporting area, or college requirement 
may be used to satisfy the General University Requirements. If two 
colleges are involved in the double major program, the student must 
designate which college is responsible for the maintenance of records. 

Graduation Applications 

Application for graduation must be filed with the Office of Records and 
Registrations; (a) during the registration period, or (b) not later than the end 
of the schedule adjustment period of the regular semester, or (c) at the end 
of the first week of the second summer session. In all cases, graduation 
applications must be filed at the beginning of the student's final semester 
before receiving a degree. 

If all degree requirements are not completed during the semester in 
which the graduation application was submitted, it is the responsibility of 
the student to file a new graduation application with the Office of Records 
and Registrations at the beginning of a subsequent semester when all 
degree requirements may be completed The graduation application fee is 
a one-time, non-refundable charge If a subsequent application is filed for 
the same degree, the fee will not be charged a second time 



Credit Unit and Load Each Semester 



The semester hour, which is the unit of credit, is the equivalent of a 
subject pursued one period a week for one semester Two or three hours of 
laboratory or field work are equivalent to one lecture or recitation period 
The student is expected to devote three hours a week in classroom or 
laboratory or in outside preparation for each credit hour in any course. 

In order for undergraduate students to complete most curricula in four 
academic years, the semester credit load must range from twelve to 
nineteen hours so that they would complete from thirty to thirty-six hours 
each year toward the degree. Students registering for more than nineteen 
hours per semester must have the special approval of their dean. 



Classification of Students 

No baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120 semester hours 
Actual classifications run as follows freshman, 1-27 semester hours; soph- 
omore, 28-55; junior, 56-85; and senior. 86 to at least 120 

Registration 

1 To attend classes at The University of K>1aryland it is necessary to 
process an official registration Registration is final and official when all 
fees are paid Instructions concerning registration are given in the 
Schedule of Classes issued at the beginning of each new semester 

2 Students are expected to notify the Office of Records and Registra- 
tions of any change in their local or permanent address Procedures for 
notification may be found in the current Schedule of Classes, under 
"Change of Address Procedures " 

3 The schedule adjustment period shall be the first ten days of classes 
for the fall and spring semesters, and a corresponding period for 
summer semesters During that penod, a full-time undergraduate may 
drop or add courses or change sections with no charge Part-time 
undergraduate students may also drop or add courses or change 
sections, but they should consult the directions/deadlines in the 
Schedule of Classes to avoid incurring additional charges Courses 
so dropped during this schedule adjustment period will not appear on 
the student's permanent record Courses may be added, where space 
is available, during this period and will appear on the student's perma- 
nent record along with other courses previously listed After this 
schedule adjustment period, courses may not be added without spe- 
cial permission of the department and the dean of the academic unit in 
which the student is enrolled. 

Departments may identify courses or sections of courses with the 
approval of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs 
which, after the first five days of the schedule adjustment period, shall 
require faculty or departmental approval for students to add 

4. After this schedule adjustment period, all courses for which the stu- 
dent is enrolled (or subsequently adds) shall remain as a part of the 
student's permanent record. The student's status shall be considered 
as full-time if the number of credit hours enrolled at this time is nine or 
more 

5 The drop penod for undergraduate students will begin at the close of 
the schedule adjustment period and terminate at the end of the tenth 
week of classes during the fall and spring semesters, and at a corre- 
sponding penod for summer sessions During the drop period a stu- 
dent may drop a maximum of four credits However, if the course that 
the student wishes to drop carries more than four credits, the student 
may drop the entire course or. in the case of a variable credit course, 
reduce the credit level by up to four credits Such a drop will be 
recorded on the student's permanent record with the notation "W" 
and will be considered to represent a single enrollment (one of three 
possible) in the course This mark shall not be used in any computation 
of cumulative grade point average Students wishing to withdraw from 
all courses must do so on or before the last day of classes. After the 
initial schedule adjustment period, a charge shall be made for each 
course dropped or added 

6. An official class list for each course being offered is issued each 
semester to the appropriate department by the Office of Records and 
Registrations No student is permitted to attend a class if his or her 
name does not appear on the class list Instructors must report dis- 
crepancies to the Office of Records and Registrations At the end of 
the semester, the Office of Records and Registrations issues to each 
department official grade lists The instructors mark the final grades on 
the grade lists, sign the lists and return them to the Office of Records 
and Registrations 

7 Courses taken at another campus of the University or at another 
institution concurrent with regular registration on the College Park 
Campus are treated as off-campus courses and may not be credited 
without approval in advance by the dean of the college from which the 
student expects a degree. The same rule applies to off-campus regis- 
tration or registration in the summer school of another institution. 

8. A student who is eligible to remain at the College Park Campus may 
transfer among curricula, colleges, or other academic units except 
where limitations on enrollments have been approved. 

9. In all cases of transfer from one college to another on the College Park 
Campus, the dean of the receiving college, with the approval of the 
student, shall indicate which courses, if any, in the student's previous 
academic program are not applicable to his or her new program, and 
shall notify the Office of Records and Registrations of the adjustments 
that are to be made in determining the student's progress toward a 
degree. Deletions may occur both in credits attempted and corre- 
spondingly in credits earned. This evaluation shall be made upon the 
student's initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. If a student 
transfers within one college from one program to another, his or her 
record evaluation shall be made by the dean in the same way as if he 



42 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



or she were transferring colleges If the student subsequently trans- 
fers to a third college, the dean of the third college shall make a similar 
initial adjustment: courses marked "nonapplicable" by the second 
dean may become applicable in the third program 
10 In the cases of non-college students, the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally delegated to deans. 

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate 
Registration 

A senior at The University of Maryland whose GPA is at least 3 and 
who IS within seven hours of completing the requirements for the under- 
graduate degree may, with the approval of his or her dean, the chair of the 
department concerned, and the Graduate School, register for graduate 
courses, which may later be counted for graduate credit toward an 
advanced degree at this University The total of undergraduate and gradu- 
ate courses must not exceed fifteen credits for the semester Excess 
credits in the senior year cannot be used for graduate credit unless proper 
prearrangement is made Seniors who wish to take advantage of this 
opportunity must formally apply for admission to the Graduate School 

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate Level 
Courses 

Subject to requirements determined by the graduate faculty of the 
department or program offering the course, undergraduate students may 
register for graduate level courses, i e . those numbered from 600 to 898, 
with the exception of 799, for undergraduate credit 

A student seeking to utilize the option will normally be in the senior 
year, have earned an accumulated grade point average of at least 3 0. have 
successfully completed, with a grade of B or better, the prerequisite and 
correlative courses, and be a major in the offering or a closely related 
department. The student will be required to obtain prior approval of the 
department offering the course. Graduate School approval is not required 

Enrollment in a graduate level course does not m any way imply subse- 
quent departmental or Graduate School approval for admission into a 
^aduate program, nor may the course be used as credit for a graduate 
degree at The University of Maryland. 

Identification Cards 

Photo Identification cards are issued at the time the student first regis- 
ters for classes The card is to be used for the entire duration of enrollment 
and IS valid each semester only when the student also possesses a current 
semester registration card 

Students who register early will receive a new registration card along 
with their class schedule This card will validate their photo identification 
card Both cards should be carried at all times 

Students who do not register early will receive identification cards 
when they do register 

Together the photo identification card and registration card can be 
used by all students to withdraw books from the libraries, for admission to 
most athletic, social, and cultural events, and as a general form of identifi- 
cation on campus. Students who have food service contracts use a sepa- 
rate identification card issued by the dining halls 

There is a replacement charge of Si. 00 for lost or stolen registration 
cards and $7.00 for lost, stolen, or broken photo identification cards. 
(Note: the fee for broken cards applies to new photo identification 
cards issued after the Fall 1977 semester) 

Questions concerning the identification system should be addressed to 
the Office of Records and Registrations (454-5365)

It is the responsibility of veterans and dependents receiving VA bene- 
fits to notify the certification officials in the Registrations Office of every 
change of course or program, at the same time Ine change is submitted to 
the University The following types of changes must be reported credit 
level or grade option change, change of major or college, change of 
address graduation, academic dismissal reinstatement actions, and intent 
to transfer from the College Park Campus 

Attendance 

1 The University expects each student to take full responsibility for his or 
her academic work and academic progress The student, to progress 
satisfactonly, must meet the quantitative requirements of each course 
for which he or she is registered Students are expected to attend 
classes regularly, for consistent attendance offers the most effective 
opportunity open to all students to gam a developing command of the 
concepts and materials of their course of study However, attendance 
in class, in and of itself, is not a cntenon for the evaluation of the 
students degree of success or failure Furthermore, absences 
(whether excused or unexcused) do not alter what is expected of the 
student qualitatively and quantitatively Except as provided below, 
absences will not be used in the computation of grades, and the 
recording of student absences will not be required of the faculty 

2 In certain courses in-class participation is an integral part of the work of 
the course A few examples would be courses in public speaking and 
group discussion, courses emphasizing conversation in foreign lan- 
guages, certain courses in physical education, and certain laboratory 
sessions Each department shall determine which of its courses fall 
into this category It shall be the responsibility of the instructor in such 
courses to inform each class at the beginning of the semester that in- 
class participation is an integral part of the work of the course and that 
absences will be taken into account in the evaluation of the student s 
work in the course 

3 Laboratory meetings require special preparation of equipment and 
materials by the staff A student who is not present for a laboratory 
exercise has missed that part of the course and cannot expect that lie 
or she will be given an opportunity to make up this work later in tf>e 
term 

4 Special provision for freshmen the freshman year is a transitional year 
Absences of freshmen in the basic freshman courses will be reported 
to the students dean or college officer when the student has accumu- 
lated more than three unexcused absences 

5 Excuses for absences (in basic freshman courses and in courses 
where in-class participation is a significant part of the work of the

course) will be handled by the Instructor In the course in accordance 
with the general policy of his or her department and college 

Marking System 

1 . The (ollowing symbols are used on the student's permanent record for 
all courses in which he or she is enrolled after the initial registration and 
schedule adjustment period A. B, CDF. I, P. S, and W These marks 
remain as part of the student's permanent record and may be 
changed only by the original instructor on certification, approved by 
the department chair and the dean, that an actual mistake was made 
in determining or recording the grade 

2. The mark of A denotes excellent mastery ot the subject It denotes 
outstanding scholarship In computations of cumulative or semester 
averages, a mark of A will be assigned a value of 4 quality points per 
credit hour (See Minimum Requirements for Retention and Graduation 
below ) 

3 The mark of B denotes good mastery of the subject It denotes good 
scholarship In computation of cumulative or semester averages a 
mark of B will be assigned 3 quality points per credit hour 

4. The mark of C denotes acceptable mastery It denotes the usual 
achievement expected In computation of cumulative or semester 
averages a mark of C will be assigned a value of 2 quality points per 
credit hour 

5. The mark of D denotes borderline understanding of the subject It 
denotes marginal performance, and It does not represent satisfactory 
progress toward a degree. In computations of cumulative or semester 
averages a mark of D will be assigned a value of 1 quality point per 
credit hour 

6. The mark ot F denotes failure to understand the subject It denotes 
unsatisfactory performance In computations of cumulative or semes- 
ter averages a mark of F will be assigned a value of quality points per 
credit hour 

7. The mark of P is a student option mark, equivalent to A, B, C, or D (See 
Pass-Fail option below.) The student must Inform the Office of Regis- 
trations of the selection of this option by the end of the schedule 
adjustment period 

8. The mark of S is a department option mark that may be used to denote 
satisfactory performance by a student in progressing thesis projects, 
orientation courses, practice teaching, and the like In computation of 
cumulative averages a mark of S will not be included 

9. The mark of I is an exceptional mark which is an Instructor option It is 
given only to a student whose work in a course has been qualitatively 
satisfactory, when, because of Illness or other circumstances beyond 
the student's control, he or she has been unable to complete some 
small portion of the work of the course. In no case will the mark I be 
recorded for a student who has not completed the major portion of the 
work of the course The student will remove the I by completing work 
assigned by the instructor; it is the student's responsibility to request 
arrangements for completion of the work These arrangements must 
be documented in an Incomplete Contract, signed by both the student 
and the instructor (See "Incomplete Contracts. " below ) The I cannot 
be removed through re-registration for the course or through the 
technique of "credit by examination. " \n any event this mark shall 
not be used in any computation of quality points or cumulative 
averages 

10. The mark of W is used to indicate withdrawal from a course in which 
the student was enrolled at the end of the schedule adjustment 
penod For information and completeness, the mark of W is placed on 
the student's permanent record by the Office of Records and Registra- 
tion The Office of Registrations will promptly notify the instructor that 
the student has withdrawn from the course. This mark shall not be 
used in any computation of quality points or cumulative average totals 
at the end of the semester. 

11. Audit A student may register to audit a course or courses in which

incomplete Contracts 

Effective date: Fall 1988 Semester. 

1 An "Incomplete Contract " is an agreement between a student and an 
instructor for the completion of coursework under conditions 
descnbed In Item 9 of the section on the Marking System (see above). 
It IS the student's responsibility to request that an "Incomplete Con- 
tract" be wntten. 

2 Arrangements for the completion of coursework must be documented 
In an "Incomplete Contract" signed by the instructor and the student. 
A copy of the signed agreement should be filed In the Department 
office and in the appropriate college office 

3. All coursework required by an "Incomplete Contract" must be com- 
pleted by the time stipulated In the contract, usually the end of the 
next semester; but in any event, no later than one year. If the instructor 
Is unavailable, the department chair will, upon the request of the 
student, make the arrangements for the student to complete the cour- 
sework according to the requirements for an "Incomplete Contract" 
outlined above If the remaining work for the course as defined in the 
contract is not completed on schedule, the "I" will be converted to the 
grade indicated on the contract. 

4 Exceptions to the time period cited above may be granted by the 
student's dean upon the written request of the student if circum- 
stances are deemed to warrant further delay. The new completion 
date must again be specified and agreed to in writing by the student 
and the dean, 

5 It IS the responsibility of the instructor or the department chair con-

academic dismissal or withdrawal and followed by readmission, will be 
applicable toward meeting credit requirements for a degree. {See 
Readmission and Reinstatement be\ovj ) 
2 Academic retention is based solely upon grade point average (GPA) 
The significance of the cumulative grade point average (cumulative 
GPA) vanes according to the number of credits attempted 
a. Semester Academic Honors will be awarded to a student who 
completes within any given semester twelve or more credits 
(excluding courses with grades of P and S) with a semester GPA of 
3.500 or higher. This notation will be placed on the individual's 
permanent record 
b Satisfactory Performance applies to those students with a cumu- 
lative GPA between 4 000 and 2.000. 
3. Students with cumulative GPA of less than 2.000 fall into three 
categories; Unsatisfactory Performance. Academic Warning. 
and Academic Dismissal. The notations Academic Warning and 
Academic Dismissal will be placed on the student's permanent 
record. The cumulative GPA that defines each of the categories 
varies according to the credit level as noted below.

Proficiency Examination Programs 

Whether you are a new, a continuing, or a returning student, the Col- 
lege Park Campus offers several opportunities to earn college credit 
through satisfactory achievement in a variety of examinations. 

Currently, undergraduate students may earn credit through the various 
proficiency examination programs up to a total of one-half of the credits 
required for their degree. It is the students responsibility to consult with 
the appropriate dean or advisor with regard to applicability of any credit 
earned by examination to a specific degree program and to determine 
courses that should notbe elected in order to avoid duplication. A student 
will not receive credit for both passing an examination in a course and 
completing the same course. 

Students with specific questions about the University's policy may 
contact the Coordinator, Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 1117, 
Hornbake Library (454-2733). 

Three proficiency examination programs are recognized for credit by 
the College Park Campus: 



Advanced Placement Program (A.P.). Please consult the description of 
this program under Admissions and Orientation 

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) This program exists for the 
purpose of recognizing college level competence achieved outside the 
college classroom Two types of CLEP tests are available General Exami- 
nations, which cover the content of a broad field of study: and Subject 
Examinations, which cover the specific content of a college course Credit 
can be earned and will be recognized by the College Park Campus for 
some CLEP General or Subject Examinations, provided satisfactory scores 
are attained Credits earned under CLEP are not considered "residence ' 
credit 

Policies and Administration of the Examinations 

These tests are administered at CLEP testing centers throughout the 
country Written applications must be completed and on file at the testing 
center selected, usually not later than three working weeks pnor to the 
intended testing date The University of fvlaryland is a CLEP Test Center 
(Test Center Code 5814), giving tests the third Saturday of the month 

The fees for these examinations are listed on the standard CLEP appli- 
cation form To obtain an application or additional information, contact Ms. 
Williams in the Counseling Center, Shoemaker Hall (Room 0106A): or write 
to the Program Director, College Level Examination Program, Box 1821, 
Princeton, N J. 08540. 

Students who want to earn credit through CLEP must have their official 
score reports sent to the Office of Admissions, North Administration Build- 
ing, The University of N/aryland, College Park 20742 

A student must matriculate at College Park before requesting the post- 
ing of CLEP credits Such posting will not be done until a student has 
established a transcript, i e., earned credit through regularly taken 
courses Each campus of the University establishes standards for accept- 
ance of CLEP and AP exemptions and credits Students must check with 
the campus to which they will transfer to learn if they will lose, maintain, or 
gain credit 

The College Park Campus will award credit for a CLEP examination 
provided the examination was being accepted for credit on this campus on 
the date the examination was taken by the student. 

Credit will not be given for both completing a course and passing an 
examination covering substantially the same material 

CLEP examinations posted on transcripts from other institutions will be 
accepted if the examination has been approved by the College Park Cam- 
pus and the scores reported are equal to or greater than those required by 
this campus If the transcript from the prior institution does not carry the 
scores, it will be the responsibility of the student to request the Educational 
Testing Service to forward a copy of the official report to the Office of 
Admissions

Proficiency Examinations, Departmental (Credit by Examination) College 
Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, customarily referred to as 
"creditby-examinalion", are offered in a number of University courses, and 
are comparable to compretienslve final examinations in those courses 
These examinations are given at a time mutually agreed upon by the 
student and the department Department offices will provide information 
regarding place and administration, type of examination, and material 
which might be helpful in preparing for examinations. 

An undergraduate who passes a departmental proficiency examination 
is given credit and quality points toward graduation in the amount regularly 
allowed in the course, provided such credits do not duplicate credit 
obtained by some other means (eg,, earned in high school or another 
college) 

Although the mathematics and foreign language departments receive 
the most applications for credit-by-examination, most departments will 
provide examinations for a number of their courses. Any student who 
wishes more information or to apply for an examination should see the 
Coordinator. Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 1117. Hornbake 
Library 

Policies 

The applicant must be formally admitted to the College Park Campus 
Posting of credit, however, will be delayed until the student is registered 

Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be taken for courses in 
which the student has been registered beyond the schedule adjustment 
period (the first ten days of classes). 

Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be used to change 
grades, including incompletes. 

Application for credit-by-examination is equivalent to registration for a 
course: however, the following conditions apply; 

a. A student may cancel the application at any time prior to completion of 
the examination with no entry on his/her permanent record 
(Equivalent to the schedule adjustment period ) 

b. The instructor makes the results of the examination available to the 
student prior to formal submission of the grade Before formal submis- 
sion of the grade, a student may elect not to have this grade recorded. 
In this case, a symbol of W is recorded, (Equivalent to the drop 
procedure.) 

c. No course may be attempted more than twice. 

d. The instructor must certify on the report of the examination submitted 
to the Registrations Office that copies of the examination questions or 
identifying information in the case of standardized examinations, and 
the student's answers have been filed with the chairman of the depart- 
ment offering the course 

Letter grades earned on examinations to establish credit, if accepted 
by the student, are entered on the student's transcript and used in com- 
puting his/her cumulative grade point average. A student may elect to take 
an examination for credit on a "Pass-Fail" basis under the normal "Pass- 
Fail ' regulations. 

Academic Dishonesty* 

'The Academic Dishonesty Policy Statement is currently being 
revised by the Campus Senate to reflect the recent reorganization of 
the academic units at College Park. The following interim procedure is 
to be in effect until such time as this policy statement is revised by the 
Senate. For the nondepartmentalized colleges, the dean for Under- 
graduate Studies shall assume the responsibilities formerly held by the 
division provost. For the departmentalized colleges, the dean of the 
college shall assume the responsibilities formerly held by the division 
provost. 



Academic dishonesty is prohibited by the Code of Student Conduct 

and may result in a serious penalty, including expulsion from the University. 
The Code defines academic dishonesty as follows 
a Cheating. Intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized mater- 
ials, information or study aids in any academic exercise 
b Fabrication. Intentional and unauthorized falsification or invention of 

any information or citation in an academic exercise 
c Facilitating Academic Dishonesty. Intentionally or knowingly helping 
or attempting to help another to commit an act of academic 
dishonesty 
d. Plagiarism. Intentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas 
of another as one's own in any academic exercise 

In cases involving charges of academic dishonesty, the instructor in the 
course or person in charge of the activity shall report to the instructional 
department chairperson or dean (if there is no chairperson) any information 
received and the facts within his or her knowledge If the chairperson of the 
Instructional department determines that there is any sound reason for 
believing that academic dishonesty may be involved, he or she shall refer 
the matter to the dean The dean will check the Judiciary Office records to 
determine if the student has any record of prior offenses involving aca- 
demic dishonesty The dean will then consult with the student involved, 
and if the alleged academic dishonesty is admitted by the student and is 
his first offense, the dean may resolve the charges, provided the penalty is 
accepted by the student in writing In such case the dean will make a 
written report of the matter, including the action taken, to the students 
dean and to the Office of Judicial Programs Disciplinary penalties not 
involving a course grade are subject to review and approval by the Office of 
Judicial Programs 

If the case is not resolved in the above manner, the dean of the instruc- 
tional department will appoint an ad hoc Committee of Academic Dishon- 
esty, The committee will consist of a chairperson from the faculty of the 
college or division administered by the dean, one undergraduate student, 
and one member from the faculty of the students college If the student's 
dean and the dean administering the instructional department are the 
same, a second member of the faculty of the college concerned is 
appointed If within jurisdiction of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies that 
dean will appoint the ad hoc Committee on Academic Dishonesty consist- 
ing of two faculty having experience in the General Studies Program, one 
serving as chairperson, and one student in that program 

The dean of the instructional department will refer the specific report of 
alleged academic dishonesty to this ad hoc committee, which will hear the 
case The hearing procedures before the committee are set forth in the 
document "Preparing for an Academic Dishonesty Hearing." issued by the 
Office of Judicial Programs The Code of Student Conducf provides that 
any act of academic dishonesty, including a first offense, will place the 
student in jeopardy of "suspension from the University, unless specific and 
significant mitigating factors are present" (part 1 1 ) A repeated violation, or 
the more serious first offense, may result in expulsion Also, disciplinary 
records for any act of academic dishonesty are retained in the Judicial 
Programs Office for at least three years from the date of final adjudication 

The chair of the committee will report its findings of facts and recom- 
mended penalties, if any, to the dean of the instructional department The 
sanctions specified by the panel are regarded as recommendations to the 
dean, who will inform the student and the Office of Judicial Programs of the 
outcome in writing Also, if it has been determined that the student should 
be suspended or expelled, the dean should advise the student of the right 
to file an appeal in accordance with Parts 38 and 40 through 45 of the Code 
of Student Conduct. Disciplinary penalties not involving a course grade 
are subject to review and approval by the Office of Judicial Programs 

Students accused of academic dishonesty should request a copy of 
the University document "Preparing for an Academic Dishonesty Hear- 
ing "" Contact the Judicial Programs Office at 454-2927

Dean: Miller 

The College of Agriculture offers educational programs with a broad 
cultural and scientific base Students are prepared for careers in agricultur- 
ally related sciences, technology and business 

The application of knowledge to the solution of some of the world's 
most critical problems concerning adequate amounts and quality of food 
and the quality of the environment in which we live are important missions 
of the College 

This original College of The University of Maryland College Park was 
chartered in 1856 The College of Agriculture has a continuous record of 
leadership in education since that date It became the beneficiary of the 
Land-Grant Act of 1862 

The College of Agriculture continues to grow and develop as part of the 
greater University, providing education and research activities enabling us 
to use our environment and natural resources to best advantage while 
conserving basic resources for future generations 

Advantage of Location and Facilities. Educational opportunities in the 
College of Agriculture are enhanced by the nearby location of several 
research units of the Federal government. Of particular interest are the 
Agricultural Research Center at Beltsville and the US. Department of 
Agnculture Headquarters in Washington, DC The National Agricultural 
Library at Beltsville is an important resource 

Related research laboratories of the National Institutes of Health, mili- 
tary hospitals. National Aeronautics and Space Agency, and the National 
Bureau of Standards are in the vicinity Interaction of faculty and students 
with personnel from these agencies is encouraged Teaching and research 
activities are conducted with the cooperation of scientists and professional 
people in government positions 

Instruction in the basic biological and physical sciences, social sci- 
ences and engineering principles is conducted in well-designed class- 
rooms and laboratories The application of basic principles to practical 
situations is demonstrated for the student in numerous ways 

Modern greenhouses are available for teaching and research on a wide 
variety of plants, plant pests, and crop cultural systems 

Dairy and beef cattle and flocks of poultry are kept on the campus for 
teaching and research purposes. 

Several operating research farms, located in Central, Western, and 
Southern Maryland and on the Eastern Shore, support the educational 
programs in agriculture by providing locations where important crops, 
animals, and poultry can be grown and maintained under practical and 
research conditions These farms add an important dimension to the 
courses offered in agriculture Data from these operations and from coop- 
erating producers and processors of agricultural products are utilized tiy 
students interested in economics, teaching, engineering, and conserva- 
tion, as they relate to agriculture, as well as by those concerned with 
biology or management of agricultural crops and animals 

General Information. Today's agriculture is a highly complex and 
extremely efficient industry that includes supplies and services used in 
agricultural production, and the marketing, processing and distribution of 
products to meet the consumers' needs and wants The College of Agricul- 
ture strives to accomplish the task of providing an agricultural education 
that fits all the needs of today's most advanced science of agriculture. 

Instruction in the College of Agriculture includes the fundamental sci- 
ences and emphasizes the precise knowledge that graduates must 
employ in the industrialized agriculture of today, and helps develop the 
foundation for their role in the future Course programs in specialized areas 
may be tailored to fit the particular needs of the individual student 

Previous training in agriculture is not a prerequisite for study in the 
College of Agriculture, students with rural, suburban and urban back- 
grounds comprise the student body

Agricultural engineering utilizes both the physical and biological sci- 
ences to help meet the needs of our increasing world population for food 
and natural fiber while maintaining or improving the environment Scientific 
and engineering principles are applied to the design of equipment and 
buildings and to the development of methods to conserve and utilize soil 
and water resources for food and fiber production and recreation, utilize 
energy to improve labor efficiency and reduce laborious and menial tasks; 
house and handle plants and animals to optimize production, improve the 
standard of housing for the rural population, process food and fiber after 
harvest to maintain or increase their quality, handle waste products from 
agricultural and aquacultural production units and processing plants, pro- 
tect the health of agricultural, aquacultural and processing plant workers 
and production animals: and to maintain the flow of supplies and equip- 
ment to the agricultural and aquacultural production units and from these 
production units to the processing plants and to the consumer The agri- 
cultural engineer places emphasis on maintaining a high-quality environ- 
ment while developing efficient and economical engineering solutions 

The undergraduate curriculum provides opportunity to prepare for 
many interesting and challenging careers in design, management, 
research, education, sales, consulting, or international service The pro- 
gram of study includes a broad base of mathematical, physical and engi- 
neering sciences combined with basic biological sciences Twenty-two 
hours of electives give flexibility so that students may plan a program 
according to their major interest 

Students with interest in agricultural engineering may enroll through 
either the College of Agriculture or the College of Engineering However, all 
Agricultural Engineering majors must meet admission, progress and reten-

Agronomy instruction combines the principles of basic sciences with 
an intimate knowledge of plants and soils This amalgamation of basic and 
applied sciences provides the basis for improved programs to conserve 
soil resources and improve environmental quality while providing programs 
for improved crop production to meet the ever increasing need for food 

The agronomy curricula are flexible and allow the student either to 
concentrate on basic science courses that are needed for graduate work 
or to select courses that prepare for employment at the bachelor's degree 
level as a specialist with park and planning commissions, road commis- 
sions, extension service, soil conservation service, and other governmental 
agencies Many graduates with the bachelor's degree are also employed 
by private corporations such as golf courses and seed, fertilizer, chemical, 
and farm equipment companies 

Agronomy students wtio follow the Journalism-Science Communication 
option are prepared to enter the field of science communication Opportu- 
nities in this area are challenging and diverse Students who are interested 
in public relations may find employment with industry or governmental 
agencies Others may become writers and. in some cases, science editors 
for newspapers, publishing houses, radio, and television Technical and 



professional (ournals hire students trained in this field as editors and writ- 
ers Also, this training is valuable to students who find employment in 
University extension programs, as a large part of their work involves written 
communication with the public 

Students completing graduate programs are prepared for college 
teaching and research, or research and management positions with indus- 
try and governmental agencies 

Additional information on opportunities in agronomy may be obtained 
by writing to the Department of Agronomy

Food science is a relatively new branch of science concerned with the 
application of the fundamental principles of the physical, biological, and 
behavioral sciences and engineering to better understand the complex 
and heterogeneous materials recognized as food The contemporary food 
industry is highly dependent on this accumulating body of knowledge and 
especially on the people who are able to apply it — the food scientists or 
the food technologists, terms that are used interchangeably 

Courses include the general areas of production, distribution, prepara- 
tion, evaluation, and utilization of foods to provide a better and more 
plentiful food supply for humankind 

Specialization is offered in the areas of flavor and food chemistry, food 
microbiology, including industrial fermentation, food processing technol- 
ogy including freezing, thermal and aseptic processing, quality assurance, 
and the commodity areas of red meats, milk and dairy products, fruits and 
vegetables, poultry and poultry products and seafood products 

Opportunities for careers in food science are available in industry, 
universities and government Specific positions for food scientists include 
product development, production management, quality control and quality 
assurance, tecfinical sales and service, ingredient management, food engi- 
neering, research and teaching.

knowledge of factors affecting plant growth and development in an effort 



52 College of Agriculture Departments, Programs and Curricula 



to help meet the food needs of the world population and help beautify our 
surroundings The horticulturist specifically, is involved with fruit produc- 
tion (pomology), vegetable production (olericulture), greenhouse plant pro- 
duction (floriculture), the production of ornamental trees and shrubs, and 
the storage and transportation of horticultural crops until they reach the 
consumer (post-harvest horticulture) The landscape designer combines a 
knowledge of plant growth and development with principles of functional 
and aesthetic planning and design to create landscapes that are useful, 
pleasing, and environmentally sound 

The Department of Horticulture offers undergraduate curriculum 
options in Horticultural Production, Horticultural Science, Horticultural Edu- 
cation, and Landscape Design and Contracting The undergraduate curric- 
ulum options prepare the student either for advanced graduate study at

tural industries Advanced studies in the department, leading to the M S. 
and Ph D degrees, are available to outstanding students having a strong 
motivation for horticultural research, university teaching, and/or extension 
education 

Students interested in pursuing a continued education in forestry, con- 
servation-related subjects, or other disciplines related to the biological/ 
natural life sciences are advised in the Department of Horticulture Founda- 
tion courses, strongly oriented in the sciences, transfer readily into related 
curricula to any of the approximately fifty universities which offer accred- 
ited undergraduate degrees in forestry Virginia Polytechnic Institute and 
State University (VPI/SU) and West Virginia University (WVU) offer IVIary- 
land residents accepted into their forestry programs eligibility for in-state 
tuition 

Immediate employment outlets for horticulture graduates include: com- 
mercial production and wholesale and retail sale of horticultural crops 
through orchards and vegetable farms, nurseries, greenhouse operations, 
garden centers, and florist shops; production management and sales in

Institute of Applied Agriculture — Two- Year 
Program 

The Institute of Applied Agriculture, a two-year college-level program 
offered as an alternative to the four-year program, prepares students for 
specific occupations in technical agriculture 

The institute offers three major programs with eleven curriculum 
options 

I Business Farming 

A Farm Production and Management 
B Agricultural Business Management 

II, Ornamental Horticulture 

A General Ornamental Horticulture 
B Nursery Management 
C, Garden Center Management 
D Greenhouse Management 

E, Florist Shop Management 

F, Landscape Management 

III, Turfgrass Management 

A, Golf Course Management 

B, Lawn Care Management 

C, Lawn Care Technician (a one-year option) 

The business farming program develops skills needed for farm opera- 
tion or for employment in agricultural service and supply businesses such 
as feed, seed, fertilizer, and machinery companies, and farmers' 
cooperatives 

Options in ornamental horticulture prepare students for employment 
in or management of greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers, flonst shops, 
landscape maintenance companies or interior plantscaping companies 

The turfgrass management program concentrates on the technical 
and management skills needed to work as a golf course superintendent, to 
work in commercial or residential lawn care companies or in other turf- 
grass-related industnes such as parks and cemeteries 

To enhance a student's occupational experience, the institute requires 
participation in a Supervised Work Experience program, usually completed 
before taking second-year courses 

A graduate of the institute is awarded a Certificate in Agriculture speci- 
fying the student's area of specialization Graduation requires the success- 
ful completion of sixty credit hours of a recognized program option, com- 
pletion of Supervised Work Experience, and a 2 00 cumulative grade point 
average. 

Though designed as a two-year terminal program, the institute does not 
restnct continuing education. In general, all institute courses are transfer- 
rable to the UMCP and UMES campuses The extent to which the courses 
can be applied to a baccalaureate degree will depend on the individual 
department in which a student is planning to major

College of Arts and Humanities 

Dean: Lesher (acting) 

The College of Arts and Humanities offers courses and programs tor 
both majors and non-ma|ors Students interested in the traditional fields of 



the liberal arts will find many offerings in the Departments of Art. Music, 
Communication Arts and Theatre, English and the foreign languages. His- 
tory, and Philosophy Here they will study the artifacts and documents of 
the past and the present, reflecting both western and non western 
civilizations 

The college also offers instruction in the creative and performing 
areas — studio art. music, dance, theatre, speech, creative writing, and 
film — as well as professional training in modern communications (radio- 
television film) 

Arts and Humanities encourages its students to take several 
approaches to the study of human cultural behavior Majors are available in 
American. East Asian. Jewish. Russian studies and linguistics Faculty 
representing various disciplines will advise students on such area studies 
as Latin America Or a student, with faculty help, may devise coherent 
programs in. for example, women's studies, popular culture, the history 
and philosophy of science, and the classical, medieval, or renaissance 
world All of these programs, and many others that a student's imagination 
and interest may suggest, are strengthened by courses from other 
colleges 

Many of the major programs in Arts and Humanities make excellent pre- 
professional preparation In fact, with a judiotous choice of electives in this 
and other colleges, students with any major in Arts and Humanities may 
prepare themselves for careers or advanced training in medicine, busi- 
ness, government, law, teaching, publishing, library work, and museum 
work, among others Internship opportunities throughout the college 
should enhance this process 

Most careers in which the graduates of Arts and Humanities will eventu- 
ally find themselves require and reward the abilities fostered by a liberal 
education: the ability to write clear, carefully organized, readable English, 
to speak forcefully and persuasively, and to think logically and critically 
The programs in the College of Arts and Humanities, therefore, are con- 
cerned with developing the qualities of verbal facility and adaptability 
needed for career success, * 

The chief administrative officer of the College of Arts and Humanities is 
the dean Staff in the student affairs section of the dean's office provide 
academic advising and other services for students The dean's office is 
responsible for certifying that students have met all degree requirements. 
The staff evaluates transfer credits and coordinates the advising of newly 
admitted students It maintains a liaison with the various faculty advisors 
and academic programs within the college The office of the dean is the 
place where students can go when they have questions about academic 
policies or procedures. The staff can adjust courses or schedules, provid- 
ing It IS ethically justifiable The dean's office can interpret existing regula- 
tions and. where it again feels ethically justified, can make certain 
exceptions"

Associate Professor and Chair: Kelly 

Associate Professor and Undergraduate Coordinator fvlintz 

Associate Professors: Caughey . Diner, Lounsbury 

The department offers an interdisciplinary focus on American culture 
and society in both historical and contemporary sources Undergraduate 
majors, with the help of faculty advisors, design a program that includes 
courses offered by the American Studies faculty, and sequences of 
courses in the disciplines usually associated with American studies (i.e., 
history, literature, sociology, anthropology, political science, and others), or 
pertinent courses grouped thematically (eg, Afro-Amencan studies, 
women's studies, ethnic studies, comparative cultures, popular culture, 
urban and environmental studies, and so forth) 

The major requires forty-five hours, at least twenty-four of which must 
be at the 300-400 level Of those forty-five hours, twenty-one must be in 
AI^ST courses, with the remaining twenty-four in two twelve-hour core 
areas outside the regular AMST offerings 

No grade lower than a C may be applied toward the major The depart- 
ment recommends that students fulfill the college's history requirement 
with an American history course, particularly if American history is not one 
of the core areas in the student's program Lists of courses applicable to 
the major for each of the core areas are available from the department 
office No courses other than those on the lists will be accepted for credit 
toward the major unless an advisor's permission has been granted in

Two majors are offered in art: art history and studio. The student who 
majors in art history is committed to the study and scholarly interpretation 
of existing works of art. from the prehistoric era to our times, while the 
studio major stresses the student's direct participation in the creation of 
works of art 

In spite of this difference, both majors are rooted in the concept of art as 
a humanistic experience, and share an essential common aim: the develop- 
ment of aesthetic sensitivity, understanding, and knowledge For this rea- 
son, students in both majors are required to progress through a "common 
curriculum," which will ensure a broad grounding in both aspects of art. 
then each student will move into a "specialized curriculum " with advanced 
courses in his or her own major 

A curriculum leading to a degree in art education is offered in the 
College of Education with the cooperation of the Department of Art

Maryland may major in classical languages and literatures, with options in 
Greek. Latin, or Greek/Latin combined, and enroll in a variety of courses on 
the classical world In addition to the regular sequence of Greek and Latin 
courses, the department offers Intensive Latin (LATN 120 and 220). Vocab- 
ulary Building (CLAS 280. 290), Greek and Roman Mythology (CLAS 170. 
470), Greek and Latin Literature in Translation (CLAS 370, 371). Women in 
Greece and Rome (CLAS 320), Greek Tragedy (CLAS 374). and special 
topics courses (CLAS 309) on ancient education, ancient literature, ancient 
sports, etc. Courses on other classical subjects (history, art. philosophy, 
architecture) are taught by allied faculty on the Committee on Classical 
Studies 

Students who have had Latin in high school are encouraged to work at 
the highest level of which they feel capable. The department advisor will 
help students identify the appropriate courses in which to enroll Normally 
students with less than one year of high school Latin take LATN 101 Those 
who enter with a full year of high school Latin register tor LATN 102: with 
two full years. LATN 203, College credit is given to students who have 
earned a 3. 4. or 5 on the Advanced Placement test in Latin

Greek and Latin, and (D) Classical Humanities Both option A and option B 
require a total of thirty credit hours, including six credit hours in the given 
language at the 200 level and twenty-four additional credit hours in upper 
level courses in the same language, of which at least twelve must be at the 
400 level A student who enters the program at the 300 level is excused 
from the six credits at the 200 level Option C requires twelve hours of the 
second language in addition to the thirty hours of the first language These 
twelve hours begin at the level that the department judges appropriate to 
the student in virtue of previous training A student with no previous

second language toward the major requirement. Each option also requires 
nine credit hours of supporting courses as follows: CLAS 170 (Greek and 
Roman Mythology). HIST 130 (The Ancient World), and one 300 level spe- 
cialized course in Greek or Roman History (HIST 324, 325. 326. or 327) No

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the 
dance program offers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a 
foundation for the dance professions By developing an increasing aware- 
ness of the physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of movement In 
general, the student eventually is able to integrate his or her own particular 
mind-body consciousness into a more meaningful whole To facilitate the 
acquisition of new movement skills, as well as creative and scholarly 
insights in dance, the curriculum provides a structured breadth exf)erience 
at the lower department level At the upper level students may either 
involve themselves in various general university electives. or they may 
concentrate their energies m a particular area of emphasis in dance 
Although an area of emphasis is not mandatory, many third and fourth year 
students are interested in studying a singular aspect of dance in depth, 
such as performance, choreography, production/management, education, 
or general studies (encompassing dance history, literature and cnlicism). 

The dance faculty is composed of a number of distinguished teachers, 
choreographers, and performers, each one a specialist in his or her own 
field Visiting artists, throughout the year and during the summer, make 
additional contributions to the program There are several performance 
and choreographic opportunities for all dance students, ranging from infor- 
mal workshops to fully mounted concerts both on and off campus Stu- 
dents may have the opportunity of working with Maryland Dance Theater 
or with Improvisations IJnIimited, t)Oth in residence in the department 

Students must complete lifty-nine semester hours of dance credits Of 
these, eighteen hours of modern technique and lour hours of ballet tech- 
nique are required Majors may not use more than seventy-two DANC 
credits toward the total of 120 needed for graduation In addition to the 
twenty-two technique credits required, students must distnbute the 
remaining thirty-seven credits as follows

Professor and Chair: Francescato 

Professors: Bonta, Fabiano, Kjaer 

Associate Professor: Chen, McWhinnie 

Assistant Professors: Ansell, Eckersley, Gips, Hoover, Lozner, Roper,

The Department of Housing and Design offers programs of concentra- 
tion in three areas; housing, interior design, and advertising design 

The department seeks to provide professionally focused instruction in 
the theoretical foundation, methods, and skills pertinent to each concentra- 
tion area In addition, students are encouraged to acquire a broad base of 
general education by enrolling in elective, recommended, and required 
courses outside of the department. 

Housing. The housing curriculum is designed to reflect the multidiscipli- 
nary nature of the field as well as the varied interests of housing majors 
Consequently, students under the close supervision and advisement of the 
faculty are given the opportunity to develop a program suitable to their 
interests and career goals Aside from the required housing courses pro- 
vided by the department, students are recommended to take courses that 
will emphasize the development of methodological skills (eg, statistics, 
computer programming), as well as an understanding of the political, 
social, and economic environment in which housing is produced and con- 
sumed Graduates will be qualified for employment in the housing industry, 
governmental housing agencies, housing authorities, and consumer orga- 
nizations They will also be qualified to pursue a program of graduate 
studies in housing or urban affairs. 

Interior Design. This program provides the student with fundamental con- 
cepts and basic professional skills required to plan and design interior 
environments These include not only aesthetic considerations, but also 
the integration of structural and mechanical building systems, the satisfac- 
tion of functional requirements, an understanding of the needs and motiva- 
tions of the users and sponsors, considerations of cost, and compliance 
with codes and regulations Functional and imaginative applications of 
design skills to space planning and furnishing of commercial, institutional, 
and residential interiors are stressed Special courses include considera- 
tions of barrier-free design for handicapped and elderly users, gaming 
simulation in design, and seminars in theoretical concerns A student 
chapter of the professional organization American Scoeity of Interior 



Design (ASID) and internship opportunities provide contact with practicing 
professionals Graduates will be qualified for entry level employment with 
interior design firms and architectural firms Students with above average 
performance will be qualified to pursue graduate study After considerable 
experience has been gained in professional practice, some graduates will 
open their own firm or partnership The Interior Design Program is accred- 
ited by the Foundation lor Interior Design Education and Research (FIDER). 

Advertising Design. This program provides a foundation in the fields of 
graphic and visual communication Although some of the media used in 
visual communication are the same as those of the painter and the sculp- 
tor, the purposes and methods of the designer differ from those of the 
artist in that utility is the focus of this endeavor Visual elements such as 
lines, planes, volume, texture, and color are used to generate information 
and to communicate messages This process requires the acquisition of 
specific professional skills such as page composition, type selection, illus- 
tration, photography, design of orientation systems, and the use of com- 
plex technology in contemporary printing and electronic media Students 
graduating from this program will be qualified to begin a career as graphic 
designers and seek employment in publishing firms, advertising agencies, 
the film and television industry, the print media, the packaging industry, 
and in the graphic section of institutions and government agencies Stu- 
dents with above average performance will be qualified to pursue graduate 
study A student chapter of the professional organization I G I and intern- 
ship opportunities provide contacts with practicing professionals. 

Admission to the Pre-Design Major. Any student who has been admitted 
lo the University may declare a pre-design major. However, admission to 
the University or to the pre-design major does not guarantee admission to 
the interior design or advertising design major. Admission to these two 
majors is governed by the "Selective Admission" procedure outlined 
below 

Admission to the Interior Design and Advertising Design Majors 

1 Admission to the majors of interior design and advertising design is 
selective Ordinarily, students are admitted to these majors only after a 
Design Work Portfolio, produced according to minimum requirements 
set forth below, has been reviewed and found satisfactory by the 
Faculty Admission Committee composed of the three Area Coordina- 
tors and the Department Chair, The portfolio must be submitted by the 
appropriate deadline. Students will need a minimum of twenty-nine 
credit hours, including APDS 101 , APDS 102, APDS 103, and EDIT 160, 
before their portfolios are reviewed 

2, The following categories of students are exempted from the portfolio 
review requirement; 

(a) Freshmen having a 3 high school GPA ancf combined SAT score 
of 1200 or above: or who are National Merit and National Achieve- 
ment Scholarship finalists or semifinalists; or recipients of the 
Chancellor's Sctiolarship: or of Maryland Distinguished Scholar 
Award, or Benjamin Banneker Scholarship 

(b) Students with a minimum of twenty-nine credit hours and a grade 
of B or higher m the following courses; APDS 101 , APDS 102, APDS 
103, and EDIT 160. 

3 Transfer students must submit their Design Work Portfolio at the time 
of their application for admission to The University of Maryland or later, 
but in any case by the appropriate deadline These students will be 
admitted to the majors of interior design or advertising design after the 
portfolio has been reviewed and found satisfactory Transfer students 
who have not completed twenty-nine credits, or who have not com- 
pleted the four required courses, or whose Design Work Portfolios 
have been found unsatisfactory may be admitted as "pre-design" 
students. 

4 Potentially talented students who are unable to meet the above criteria 
may be admitted provided Xhey have applied as a "case-by-case" 
student and have been accepted by the Faculty Admission Commit- 
tee composed of the three Area Coordinators and the Department 
Chair Examples of non-academic critena on the basis of which the 
Committee may grant admission are; samples of the applicant's 
design work done in high school or community college, participation in 
portfolio preparation summer courses, leadership in extracurricular or 
community activities, hobby skills related to interior design and/or 
advertising design, job related experience in the design field. Armed 
Forces experience in design areas, etc. 

5 Students not yet admitted to the majors of interior design and advertis- 
ing design are classified as "pre-design " students Pre-design stu- 
dents will be granted preferential treatment when registering for 
departmental courses in which there is an enrollment limitation. 

6 A course in "Preparation of Design Portfolio" is offered in Summer 
Session I for all students in the pre-design category who have suc- 
cessfully completed twenty-nine credit hours including APDS 101A, 
APDS 102, APDS 103, and EDIT 160 or who are transfer students with 
an equivalent level of preparation but who have not satisfactorily 
passed the portfolio review Passing this course, however, is not 
equivalent to satisfactory completion of the portfolio review 

7 Admission to the interior design or advertising design majors is not 
automatic, even when all relevant requirements have been fulfilled It is 
the student's responsibility to file a "Change of Major" form with the

The Department of Philosophy seeks to develop students' logical and 
expository skills and their understanding of the foundations of human 
knowledge and of value, in accordance with its conception of philosophy 
as essentially an activity rather than a body of doctrine Thus in all courses 
students can expect to receive concentrated training in thinking clearly 
and inventively and in expressing themselves exactly about philosophical 
issues. This training has general applicability to all professions in which 
intellectual qualities are highly valued, such as law, medicine, government 
and business management With this in view the major in philosophy is 
designed to serve the interests of those in the ma|ority who are preparing 
for careers outside of philosophy as well as those in the minority who are 
preparing tor graduate study in philosophy 

The following are among the courses giving the general student train- 
ing in rigorous thinking, experience in critical and imaginative reflection on 
philosophical problems or familiarity with the philosophical foundations of 
Western and other cultures PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy), PHIL 
110 (Plato's Republic), PHIL 142 (Ethics), PHIL 170 (Introduction to Logic), 
PHIL 173, PHIL 174 (Logic and the English Language I and II), PHIL 236 
(Philosophy of Religion), PHIL 243 (Philosophy of Rural Life), PHIL 341 
(Ethical Theory), and the historical courses; 310, 316, 320. 325, 326. 327, 
328. 

For students interested particularly in philosophical problems arising 
within their own special disciplines, a number of courses are appropriate: 
PHIL 233 (Philosophy in Literature), PHIL 250 and 453 (Philosophy of Sci- 
ence I and II), PHIL 245 and 445 (Social and Political Philosophy I and II), 
PHIL 360 (Philosophy of Language), PHIL 331 (Philosophy of Art), PHIL 332 
(Philosophy of Beauty), PHIL 334 (Philosophy of Music), PHIL 438 (Topics in 
Philosophical Theology), PHIL 308C (Philosophy and Computers), PHIL 450 
and 451 (Scientific Thought I and II), PHIL 452 (Philosophy of Physics), PHIL 
454 (Philosophy of Economics), PHIL 455 (Philosophy of the Social Sci- 
ences), PHIL 456 (Philosophy of Biology), PHIL 457 (Philosophy of History), 
PHIL 458 (Topics in the Philosophy of Science, eg. Philosophy of Psychol- 
ogy, Historical, PHIL 465 (Philosophy of Psychology), PHIL 472 (Philosophy 
of Mathematics), and PHIL 474 (Induction and Probability) 

Pre-law students may be particularly interested in PHIL 140 (Contempo- 
rary Moral Problems), PHIL 245 and 445 (Political and Social Philosophy I 
and II), and PHIL 447 (Philosophy of Law) Pre-medical students may be 
particularly interested in PHIL 342 (Moral Problems in Medicine), and PHIL 
456 (Philosophy of Biology) 

The Department's curriculum is enriched by courses in philosophy and 
public policy issues taught by research associates in the Center for Philos- 
ophy and Public Policy under the repeatable designations PHIL 308 (Stud-

Soviet culture as broadly as possible, striving to comprehend it In all Its 
aspects rather than focusing their attention on a single segment of human 
behavior It is hoped that insights into the Russian way of life will be 
valuable not only as such but as a means to deepen the students' aware- 
ness of their own society and of themselves 

Course offerings are in several departments: language and literature, 
government and politics, history, economics, geography, philosophy, and 
sociology A student may plan his or her curriculum so as to emphasize any 
one of these disciplines, thus preparing for graduate work either in the 
Russian area or in the discipline 

Students in the program must meet the general degree requirements of 
the University and college from which they graduate They must complete 
twelve hours of basic courses in Russian language normally through SLAV 
104 or the equivalent of these courses taken elsewhere, and they must

level (chosen from among SLAV 201 . 202, 301 , 302, 321 . 322, 401 . 402, and 
403 or equivalent courses) In addition, students must complete twenty- 
four hours in Russian area courses on the 300 level or above These twenty- 
four hours must be taken in at least five different departments, if appropri- 
ate courses are available, and may include language-literature courses 
beyond those required above 

It IS recommended but not required that the student who plans on 
doing graduate work complete at least eighteen hours at the 300 level or 
above (which may include courses applicable to the Russian Area Pro- 
gram) in one of the above-mentioned departments It is also recommended 
that students who plan on doing graduate work in the social sci- 
ences — government and politics, economics, geography, and sociol- 
ogy—take at least two courses in statistical methods 

The students advisor will be the program director or his designate The 
student must receive a grade of C or better in all the above-mentioned 
required courses

College of Behavioral and Social 
Sciences 

Dean: Polakotf 

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is compnsed of a 
diverse group of disciplines that emphasize a broad liberal arts education 
as a foundation for understanding the environmental, social, and cultural 
forces that shape our world. At the heart of the behavioral and social 
sciences is the attempt to understand human beings, both individually and 
in groups: this understanding is developed using approaches that range 
from the scientific to the philosophical, from the experimental to the theo- 
retical. The greatest strength of the behavioral and social sciences, how- 
ever, is that the techniques of problem-solving are taught within the con- 
text of strong academic skills This provides students with the intellectual 
breadth necessary to understand the world around them, and with the 
skills necessary to think analytically and critically, and to speak and write 
clearly and persuasively. 

Students interested in human behavior and in solving human and social 
problems will find many exciting opportunities through the programs and 
courses offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences The 
college is composed of the following academic units

careers in the law and related fields The internship programs ottered by 
many departments in the college provide students with practical experi- 
ence working in governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, corpora- 
tions, and research centers 

The college believes strongly in the importance of significant use of 
computers as a necessary part of undergraduate education in the tiehav- 
loral and social sciences The Computer Laboratory provides undergradu- 
ate students in the college with the facilites and staff assistance to satisfy 
a wide range of computer-related needs The latxiratory's facilities availa- 
ble to undergraduate students include 130 fully networked microcom-

The Afro-American Studies Program offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in 
the interdisciplinay study of the life and history of blacks in America, The 
curriculum includes a special emphasis on social, political and economic 
institutions and their relevance to blacks and their communities The pro- 
gram prepares students to apply analytical skills, generic to social science 
research, in order to solve the pressing socio-economic problems con- 
fronting the black community in the United States Through the examina- 
tion of parallels and contradictions inherent in problem solving in the black 
community, problems observed in other national or international contexts 
are illuminated While the specific subject matter of the program is Afro- 
American communities, the essential value of the program extends to 
studies of other cultures and communities 

Students may strengthen their understanding of the cultural and histor- 
ical factors affecting the progress of blacks by choosing the General 
Concentration, they may develop job-related skills and problem-solving 
capabilities by selecting the Public Policy Concentration, or they may 
combine elements of both concentrations and satisfy General and Public 
Policy requirements 

There is a twelve-hour core of fundamental courses on Afro-American 
and African history and culture and on public policy in both concentrations 
With the many electives available, it is possible to tailor a course of study to 
meet diverse interests 

General Concentration In addition to the core courses, students may 
desire to take eighteen additional hours in one or more specialty areas 
within Afro-American Studies such as history, literature, government and 
politics, sociology or anthropology A departmental seminar and a senior 
thesis complete the basic requirements for this option This option is 
particularly attractive for students who desire a broad liberal arts focus 

Public Policy Concentration To prepare for the increasingly competi- 
tive job market, students may choose to develop specialized knowledge 
and competencies in solving problems affecting minority communities 
Substantive areas of study include the family, criminal justice, employ- 
ment, health care, discrimination, urban development, as well as many 
related topics 

In addition to the core courses, students selecting this option take 
statistics, economics, policy analysis, a public policy seminar and special- 
ized courses in substantive problem areas Those choosing the Public 
Policy option also complete an internship, which often leads to full-time 
employment in federal, state and local agencies. Congressional offices or 
non-profit organizations

ence and receive a certificate in Afro-American Studies (see Undergradu- 
ate Certificates) 

Internship Program The Afro- American Studies Program offers an excit- 
ing opportunity to students interested in experiencing public policy from 
the perspective of an analyst AASP will either assist you in finding an 
internship that will meet your particular policy interests or will work with you 
to develop a work assignment of your selection to ensure that it provides 
the right circumstances for you to gam an increased understanding of the 
policy process 

Supporting Area/Alternate Major Special opportunities also exist for 
students in Computer Science, who may specify Afro American Studies as 
their supporting area Approved courses for the supporting area include all 
of the 300-400 level public policy concentration courses 

Additional options are available for pre-Business. pre-Journalism and 
pre-Engineering majors who may designate Afro- American Studies as their 
supporting area or alternate major Students who plan to specify Afro- 
American studies as their supporting area or alternate major should dis-

Anthropology has been defined as "the study of humanity" because it 
is the only discipline that tries to understand humans as a whole — as an 
animal, as a social being, as a literate being — from the very beginning of 
time and all over the world Anthropologists try to explain differences 
among humans — differences in their physical characteristics as well as 
their customs, behavior, and attitudes. Since children learn their culture 
from the older generation, who in turn learned it from the preceding genera- 
tion, culture IS a product of the past Anthropologists study the way human 
culture has grown and changed through time, and the way the species has 
spread over the earth. This is not the history of kings and great women or 
men or of wars and treaties, it is the history, including the present, and 
science of human knowledge and behavior 

It IS becoming increasingly clear that anthropology has been a definite 
asset in finding jobs in a variety of fields ranging from business to the fine 
arts Whether one goes on to a Masters or a PhD . striving to advance the 
frontiers of knowledge concerning our species and the cultural process, or

out as a city planner, development consultant, program evaluator. or 
whatever, is up to the individual. Anthropology at UMCP offers a solid and 
rigorous background for a variety of career options 

The Anthropology Department offers beginning and advanced cour- 
sework in the four principal subdivisions of the discipline physical anthro- 
pology, linguistics, archaeology, and cultural anthropology. Within each 
area, the department offers some degree of specialization and provides a 
variety of opportunities within the curriculum Laboratory courses are 
offered in physical anthropology and archaeology: field schools are offered 
in archaeology and ethnography. Instruction is available in both Old World 
and New World archaeology and ethnology, and lab courses include 
human evolution, human population biology, forensic anthropology, osteol- 
ogy, and archaeological analysis The interrelationship of all branches of 
anthropology is emphasized. Courses in these subdivisions may be used 
to fulfill the minor or "supporting courses" requirement in some programs 
leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. 

The Anthropology Department has a total of four laboratories located in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into teaching labs and research labs At 
present, there are two physical anthropology labs: one osteological 
research lab, and one "wet" lab for teaching and research in serology, 
histology, and anatomy These laboratones contain radiographic, histolic, 
and electrophonetic equipment, and the osteological lab is centered 
around an extensive research collection The departments two archaeol- 
ogy labs, containing materials collected from field schools of the past 
several years, serve as both teaching and research labs

Admission is granted by the Office of Undergraduate Advising or the 
General Honors Program 

Courses in applied areas at the 300 level may be taken at any point 
after ECON 203 However, majors will benefit by completing courses in 
intermediate theory and statistics as soon as possible Majors should take 
ECON 305, ECON 306, and ECON 321 or its equivalent immediately upon 
completion of ECON 203 While most students take ECON 305 and 306 in 
sequence, both may be taken concurrently Courses at the 400 level are 
generally more demanding, particularly those courses with intermediate 
theory as a prerequisite 

While the department does not require any particular set of elective 
Economics courses, students can benefit by defining subspecialties con- 
sistent with their career and professional objectives Several popular sub- 
specialties are described below: 

(a) Econometrics and computer modeling ECON 321 , ECON 422 and 
ECON 423 (econometrics). ECON 424 and ECON 402 (computer mod- 
els in economics) and ECON 402 (macroeconomic models). 

(b) Business and industrial organization ECON 370 or ECON 470 (labor 
economics), ECON 361, ECON 460 (industrial organization) 

(c) Money and finance ECON 430 or ECON 431 (Money and Banking) and 
ECON 402 (Business Cycles) 

(d) International trade and development; ECON 315 or ECON 416 (eco- 
nomic development of underdeveloped areas), ECON 440 or ECON 441 
(international economics). ECON 380 and ECON 316 (comparative eco- 
nomic systems) 

(e) Labor economics and income distribution: ECON 370 or ECON 470 
(labor economics). ECON 374 and ECON 375 (sexual race issues), and 
ECON 465 (health care economics). 

(f) Economics of the public sector: ECON 450 or ECON 454 (Public Sector 
Economics), ECON 451 (Public Choice and Public Policy): ECON 381 
and ECON 385 (environmental and natural resources economics), and 
ECON 490 (urban economics) 

(g) Economic history and comparative systems ECON 310 and ECON 31 1 
(history). ECON 380 (comparative economic systems) and ECON 486 
(economics of national planning). 

Empirical research and the use of computers is becoming increasingly 
important in economics All students are well advised to include as much 
statistics, econometrics, and computer programming courses in their cur- 
riculum as possible 

Those students planning to pursue graduate study in economics must 
begin to prepare themselves analytically for graudate work by focusing on 
theory, statistics, and mathematics In their undergraduate curriculum. 
These students should complete the advanced version of intermediate 
theory (ECON 405 and ECON 406) and the econometric sequence (ECON 
422 and ECON 423) Mastery of the calculus and linear algebra is essential 
for success in many of the top graduate schools Students should consider 
MATH 140, MATH 141, MATH 240 (or MATH 400), MATH 241 and MATH 
246 as very useful preparation 

Economics Honors Program. The Honors Program provides economics 
majors with the opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with 
faculty supervision of seminar papers and an honors thesis The Honors 
Program is designed for students intending to attend graduate school or 
those seeking an in-depth study of economic theory and its application to 
economic problems 

The Honors Program is a twelve-hour sequence, culminating in the 
completion of a senior thesis Students must complete ECON 396 (Honors 
Workshop) and ECON 397 (Honors Thesis) in their senior year, as well as 
two of the following four courses: ECON 405, 406, 422 and 425. Students 
must complete these twelve hours with a GPA of 3 5 ECON 396 is only 
offered in the fall term 

To be eligible for admission, a student must have completed fifteen 
hours of economics with a GPA of 3 25 Interested students should meet 
with the Director of Undergraduate Studies at the earliest possible date to 
review their curriculum plans and to apply for admission to the program.

The Department of Geography offers programs of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Science degree Geography is an interdisciplinary field that 



offers a wide range of career options The central question in geographical 
study IS "where' Geographers research locational questions of the natu- 
ral environment, of social and economic systems, and of past human 
activity on the land Modern geographical knowledge is useful to policy 
makers, as well as to program planners and managers Students of geogra- 
phy must master a variety of methods and techniques that are uselul in 
locational analysis, including computer applications and mapping, map 
making or cartography, air-photo interpretation and remote sensing, field 
observation, statistical analysis, computer applications and mapping, and 
mathematical modelling In addition to methodological knowledge, stu- 
dents of geography also must master substantive knowledge — either In 
the physical/natural sciences or the behavioral/social sciences The ability 
to write clearly and to synthesize information and concepts are valued 
highly in geographical education and practice International interests are 
best pursued with complementary study emphases in foreign languages 
and area studies 

Increasingly, geographers today use their combined methodological 
and substantive knowledge towards the solution of society's problems 
Many graduate geographers take positions in planning, natural resources 
management, and policy analysis 

Geographers in the federal government work in the Departments of 
State, Interior. Defense. Agriculture. Housing and Urban Development, 
Health and Human Services, and the Central Intelligence Agency They are 
on the staffs of the legislative research branch, the Library of Congress, 
and the National Archives At the State and local government level there is 
an increasing demand for geographers in planning positions And in recent 
years more and more geographers also are employed in the private sector 
working on problems of industrial and commercial location and market 
analysis. Teaching at all levels from elementary school through graduate 
work continues to employ many geographers each year Some find geogra- 
phy an excellent background for careers in the military, journalism, law, 
travel and tourism, the nonprofit sector, and general business, others find 
the multiple perspectives of geography an excellent base for a general 
education For those interested in the future, the field has high potential for 
better understanding and planning for the economic transformation to an 
information-services economy, knowledge-intensive society Most profes- 
sional positions in geography require graduatetraining 

Requirements for an Undergraduate Major. Within any of the general 
major programs it is possible for the student to adjust his/her program to fit 
his.'her particular individual interests The major totals thirty-seven semes- 
ter hours In addition to the thirty-seven semester hours, the geography 
major is required to take an additional fifteen semester hours of suppx)rting 
coursework outside of the department The hours can be either in one 
department or in an area of concentration An area of concentration 
requires that a wntten program of courses be reviewed and placed on file 
by the department advisor See Professor Cirrincione. 1 125 LeFrak Hall, or

Hearing and speech sciences is an inherently interdisciplinary field, 
integrating knowledge from the physical and biological sciences, 
medicine, psychology, linguistics, and education toward understanding 
human communication and its disorders The department curriculum leads 
to the Bachelor of Arts degree An undergraduate major in this field is an 
appropriate background for graduate training in speech-language pathol- 
ogy or audiology, as well as for graduate work in other disciplines requinng 
a knowledge of normal or disordered speech, language, or hearing The 
student who wishes to work professionally as a speech-language patholo- 
gist or audiologist must complete additional graduate coursework in order 
to meet state licensure and national certification requirements

Psychology can be classified as a biological science (Bachelor of Sci- 
ence degree) and a social science (Bachelor of Arts degree) and offers 
academic programs related to both of these fields. The undergraduate 
curriculum in psychology provides an organized study of the behavior of 
man and other organisms in terms of the biological conditions and social 
factors which influence such behavior In addition, the undergraduate pro- 
gram IS arranged to provide opportunities for learning that will equip quali- 
fied students to pursue further study of psychology and related fields in 
graduate and professional schools 

Students who are interested in the biological aspects of behavior tend 
to choose a program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, while 
those interested primarily in the social factors of behavior tend to choose 
the Bachelor of Arts degree The choice of program is made in consultation 
with an academic advisor. 

Psychology Course requirements are the same for the Bachelor of 
Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees A minimum of 35 hours in Psychol- 
ogy, including 14 hours at the 400 level, must be taken. PSYC 478 and 479 
may not be included in the 35 credit minimum or used to meet the 400-level 
requirement Courses taken must include PSYC 100, 200. and two labora-

Sociology is the scientific study of society, its institutions, organiza- 
tions, and groups Beginning with the simple interaction between two or 
more people, sociology examines the social organization of society from 
the development of social order to the causes and impact of social change. 
Sociology's subject matter ranges from the study of the social factors that 
affect the self-concept and the nature of sex roles at the individual level to 
group processes, to organizations designed to produce products or pro- 
vide services to the major institutions of society In the latter category the 
department has strengths in the study of the military, family, education, 
health, welfare, and political and economic organizations At the societal 
and world system level, the department looks at social movements, the 
basis of stratification or inequality, sources of instability, war, technology, 
and a number of other issues 

A major in sociology offers (1) a general education especially directed 
toward understanding the complexities of modern society and its social 
problems by using basic concepts, research and statistical skills; (2) a 
broad preparation for various types of professions, occupations, and ser- 
vices dealing with people, and (3) preparation of qualified students for 
graduate training in sociology, social work, law, and business Sociology 
also forms a valuable background for those interested in other fields or 
majors Courses in sociology can be used as preparation for careers in 
government and private research, urban planning, personnel work, human 
resources management, and many other policy-making and administrative 
careers 

Areas of Specialization. The program of instruction in Sociology offers 
courses in five major areas. The strong emphasis on advising in the depart- 
ment allows the student to combine these areas into individualized pro- 
grams directed toward the student's specific goals Specializations are 
available in social science research methodology, social psychology, social 
demography, social institutions, and inequality. 

Social Science Researcti l\/1ettiodology. This specialization provides the 
student with strong statistical and methodological background and hands- 
on computer skills needed for all forms of social science research from 
evaluation research to opinion polls. Additional courses from the social 
demography specialization prepare the student for employment in govern- 
mental organizations such as ttie Census Bureau or the National Center for 
Health Statistics. 

Social Psycfiology. This option combines courses on the self concept, 
personality, collective behavior, and small group analysis Such a concen- 
tration IS valuable for helping occupations in business organizations as well 
as social welfare agencies. 

Social Demography. Demography focuses on careful, objective and sys- 
tematic study of the population, its size and characteristics, and how it 
changes in number, composition, and residence This information and the 
skills that produce it are valuable for government or business to allow for 
planning effectively 



74 Behavioral and Social Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 



Social Institutions. This area combines coursework in many social institu- 
tions ttiat sociologists study, including ttie family, education, business, 
military, religion, medical and others It includes theoretical instruction in 
formal organizations and bureaucracy and its impact on these social insti- 
tutions It also examines the relationship of the specific institutions to each 
other and the social structure It is a valuable specialization for policy- 
making occupations 

Inequality. Provides students with a macro view of society emphasizing 
the social divisions of age, sex, race, occupation, wealth, power and pres- 
tige. The impact of these characteristics on the classification systems that 
society develops is examined for the individual as well as for the society 

These areas of concentration can be combined to advantage or can be 
taken as part of a double major in conjunction with programs in other 
compatible areas such as economics, government and politics, psychol- 
ogy, business, etc This program versatility and the rich experiential learn- 
ing possibilities of the Washington metropolitan area combine to make the 
sociology curriculum a valuable career choice. 

Requirements of the Sociology Major. Students in sociology must com- 
plete forty-four* hours of departmental requirements, none of that may be 
taken pass/fail Thirty-two* of these hours are in sociology coursework 
which must be completed with a minumum average of C: fourteen' hours 
are in required core courses and eighteen hours are sociology electives, of 
which nine are required at the 400 level and an additional three are required 
at either the 300 or 400 level. Required core courses for all majors are 
SOCY 100 (Introduction), SOCY 201 (Statistics), SOCY 203 (Theory), and 
SOCY 202 (Methods) 

SOCY 100 should be taken in the freshman or sophomore year followed 
by SOCY 203. Three hours of mathematics (STAT 100; MATH 110, 111, 
115, 140, 220, or their equivalents) are required of majors as a prerequisite 
of SOCY 201 SOCY 202 follows SOCY 201 

The supporting course requirement for majors is twevie hours of a 
coherent series of courses from outside of the department that relate to the 
student's major substantive or research interests These courses need not 
come from the same department, but at least six hours must be from the 
College of Behavioral and Social Sciences It is strongly recommended that 
the student work out an appropriate supporting sequence for the particular 
specialization with the departmental advisor 

Internship. Although internships are not a requirement for a major, stu- 
dents are strongly urged to consider the internship program offered by the 
department or through the Experiential Learning Office located in 
Hornbake Library Majors may receive up to six credits in SOCY 386 by the 
combination of working in an internship/volunteer position plus doing some 
academic project in conjunction with the work experience 

Further information on coursework, internships, honors program, 
careers, and other topics may be obtained from the Sociology Undergradu- 
ate Advisor, Room 2108 Art/Sociology Building, telephone number 
454-5036 

' Forty-four hours are required because SOCY 201 and 202 are four-hour courses For 
transfer students or those with equivalent courses which are only three-hour courses, 
exceptions to this forty-lour hour requirement may be made by the Coordinator of the

' Distinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The College of Business and Management recognizes the importance 
of education in business and management to economic, social, and profes- 
sional development through profit and non-profit organizations at the local, 
regional, and national levels The faculty of the college have been selected 
from the leading doctoral programs in business. They are scholars, teach- 
ers, and professional leaders with a commitment to superior education in 
business and management The College of Business and Management is 
one of two business schools in Maryland accredited by the American 
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, the official national accredit- 
ing organization for business schools. 

The college has faculty specializing in accounting; finance; information 
systems, management science and statistics; marketing; management 
and organization, and transportation, business, and public policy. 

Undergraduate Program. The undergraduate program recognizes the 
need for professional education in business and management based on a 



foundation in the liberal arts Modern society comprises intricate business, 
economic, social, and government institutions requiring a large number of 
men and women trained to be effective and responsible managers The 
college regards its program leading to the Bachelor of Science in business 
and management as one of the most important ways it serves this need 

A student in business and management selects a major in one of 
several curncula (1) accounting; (2) finance; (3) general curriculum in 
business and management; (4) management science-statistics statistics 
option, decision and information sciences option, and management sci- 
ence option, (5) marketing; (6) personnel and labor relations; (7) production 
management and (8) transportation For students interested in law as a 
career there is a combined business and law program (The Bachelor of 
Science degree in one of the above curricula is awarded after ninety 
semester hours and one year at The University of Maryland School of Law. 
See specific requirements at the end of curricula section below ) 

Students interested in insurance, real estate, or international IJusiness 
may plan with their advisors to select elective courses to meet their spe- 
cialized needs; however, this interest is in addition to completion of one of 
the above majors 

At least forty-five t)ourso1 the 120 semester hours of academic work 
required for graduation must be in business and management subjects A 
minimum of fifty-seven fiours of the required one hundred twenty hours 
must be in 300 or 400 level courses These fifty-seven hours of upper level 
credits may not be attempted without special permission until a student 
has earned a minimum of fifty-six credits In addition to the requirement of 
an overall cumulative grade point average of 2 00 (C average) in all College 
Park coursework, an average of C in business and management subjects is 
required for graduation in all majors except accounting Accounting majors 
must earn a "C " or better in the nine required accounting courses effective 
with Fall 1986 matriculation. Electives outside the eight curricula of the 
college may be taken in any department of the University if the student has 
the necessary prerequisites Business courses taken as electives may not 
be taken on a pass/fail basis by students of the College of Business and 
Management. 

Degrees. The University confers the following degrees on students suc- 
cessfully completing programs of study in the College Bachelor of Science 
(B.S.), Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science 
(M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph D ). Each candidate for a degree must 
file in the Office of Records and Registrations, prior to a date announced 
for each semester, a formal application for a degree Information concern- 
ing admission to the M.B.A. or M.S. program is available from the College's 
Director of the Masters' Programs 

Academic Advisement. General advisement in the College of Business 
and Management is available Monday through Friday in the Office of 
Undergraduate Studies in Room 2136, Tydings Hall (telephone 454-4314). 
It IS recommended that students visit this office each semester to ensure 
that they are informed about current requirements and procedures. Stu- 
dent problems concerning advisement should be directed to the Director 
of Undergraduate Studies. 

Transfer students entering the University can be advised during spring, 
summer, and fall transfer orientation programs Contact the Orientation 
Office for further information (telephone 454-5752). 

Entrance Requirements. Admission to the College of Business and Man- 
agement IS on a competitive basis at the junior level, except for a small 
number of academically talented freshmen In order to be admitted as a 
junior, an applicant must have earned at least fifty-six semester credits, 
completed ttie required pre-business courses (i e , freshman-sophomore 
core requirements), and meet the competitive cumulative grade point aver- 
age (GPA) in effect for the semester for which he/she is applying. This GPA 
will always be between 2.3 and 3 (on 4 scale); however, for Spring 1988 
this competitive accumulative GPA was set at 2 8, In addition to all UMCP 
coursework, all courses from other colleges count toward the computation 
of the cumulative GPA for Business College Admission regardless of 
whether the courses have been accepted for transfer credit to UMCP. 

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credit from Community Colleges. 

The College of Business and Management subscribes to the policy that a 
student's undergraduate program below the junior year should include no 
advanced, professional level courses. This policy is based on the convic- 
tion that the value derived from these advanced courses is matenally 
enhanced when based upon a sound foundation in the liberal arts. 

In adhering to the above policy, it is the practice of the College of 
Business and Management to accept in transfer from a regionally accred- 
ited community college no more than twelve semester hours of work in 
business administration courses. The twelve semester hours of business 
administration acceptable in transfer are specifically identified as three 
semester hours in an introductory business course, three semester hours 
in business statistics, and six semester hours of elementary accounting. 
Thus. It IS anticipated that students transferring from another regionally 
accredited institution will have devoted the major share of their academic 
effort below the junior year to the completion of basic requirements in the 
liberal arts. A total of sixty semester hours may be transferred from a 
community college and applied toward a degree from the College of Busi- 
ness and Management. 



76 College of Business and Management 

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credits from Other Institutions. The 

College of Business and Management normally accepts transfer credits 
from regionally accredited four-year institutions Junior and senior level 
business courses are accepted from colleges accredited by the American 
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Junior and senior 
level business courses from other than AACSB accredited schools are 
evaluated on a course by course basis to determine transferability

Management Science-Statistics. In the management science-statistics 
curriculum, the student has the option of concentrating primanly in statis- 
tics, decision and information sciences, or in management science The 
three options are described below 

Statistics Option. Statistics consists of a body of methods for utilizing 
probability theory in decision-making processes Important statistical activ- 
ities ancillary to the decisionmaking process are the systematization of 
quantitative data and the measurement of variability Some specialized 
areas within the field of statistics are sample surveys, forecasting, quality 
control, design of experiment, Bayesian decision processes, actuarial sta- 
tistics, and data processing Statistical methods — for example, sample 
survey techniques — are widely used in accounting, marketing, industrial 
management, and government applications An aptitude for applied math- 
ematics and a desire to understand and apply scientific methods to signifi- 
cant problems are important prerequisites for the statistician. 

Students planning to major in statistics must take MATH 140-141. 
Course requirements for the junior-senior curriculum concentration in 
the Statistics Option are as follows: 

Semester

Decision and Information Sciences Option. Computer-based information 
systems are an integral part of nearly all businesses, large and small. The 
decision and information sciences option provides the data processing 
skills, the managerial and organizational skills, and the analysis skills 
required to design and manage business information processing systems. 
The program gives the student a firm basis in the business functional 
areas: marketing, finance, production, and accounting In addition it pro- 
vides an in-depth knowledge in information processing technology, infor- 
mation processing implementation techniques, and management science 
and statistics. These skills furnish the student with the expertise to analyze 
business problems both qualitatively and quantitatively, to propose com- 
puter based solutions, and to implement those solutions. There are many 
diverse employment opportunities available to graduates of this program. 
The typical job areas include application programmer/analyst, systems 
analyst, and computer system marketing analyst Such positions are avail- 
able in both large and small corporations, management consulting firms, 
and government agencies. 

Students planning to major in this field must complete MATH 140 and 
141 prior to junior standing. Students considering graduate work in this 
field should complete MATH 240 or 400 as early as possible in their career.

Colleqe of Computer, Mathematical 
and Pnysical Sciences 

Dean: Dorfman 

The College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences is like a 
technical institute within a large university. Students majoring in any one of 
the disciplines encompassed by the college have the opportunity of 
obtaining an outstanding education in their field The college caters both to 
students who continue as professionals in their area of specialization, 
either immediately upon graduation or after postgraduate studies, and to 
those who use their college education as preparatory to careers or studies 
in other areas The narrow specialist as well as the broad "Renaissance 
person" can be accommodated. 

Below are outlined the requirements for each major offered within the 
college Some of the University requirements and regulations are 
reiterated. 

The search for new knowledge is one of the most challenging activities 
of mankind. The university is one of the key institutions in society where 
fundamental research is emphasized. The College of Computer, Mathe- 
matical and Physical Sciences contributes very substantially and effec- 
tively to the research activities of the University. 

Many research programs include undergraduates either as paid stu- 
dent helpers or in forms of research participation. Students in departmen- 
tal Honors Programs are particularly given the opportunity to become 
involved in research. Other students too may undertake research under 
the guidance of a faculty member 

A major portion of the teaching program of the college is devoted to 
serving students majoring in disciplines not encompassed by the college. 
Some of this teaching effort is in providing the skills needed in support of 
such majors or programs. Other courses are designed as enrichment for 
non-science students, giving them the opportunity to explore the reality of 
science without the technicalities required of the major.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers a major in astronomy. 
The Astronomy Program office is located in the Computer and Space 
Sciences Building. Astronomy students are given a strong undergraduate 
preparation in astronomy, physics and mathematics, as well as encourage- 
ment to take a wide range of other liberal arts courses The Astronomy 
Program is designed to be quite flexible, in order to take advantage of 
students' special talents or interests after the basic requirements for a 
sound astronomy education have been met. Students preparing for gradu- 
ate studies will have an opportunity to choose from among many advanced 
courses available in astronomy, mathematics and physics The program is 
designed to prepare students for positions in government and industry 
laboratories and observatories, for graduate work in astronomy or related 
fields, and for non-astronomical careers such as in law or business. 

Astronomy majors are required to take two introductory courses in 
astronomy These will usually be ASTR 200 and ASTR 350 ASTR 200 is a 
lower level introductory course for all science majors, while ASTR 350 
requires two semesters of calculus based physics. In addition there is a lab 
course ASTR 210 which emphasizes practical experience in astronomical 
data. This course and two 400 level astronomy courses are also required 
for the major Students majoring in astronomy are also required to obtain a 
good background in physics. The normal required course sequence is

either PHYS 191 , 192, 293, 294 along with the attendant lab courses PHYS 
195, 196, 295, 296, or the newly introduced physics sequence PHYS 171, 
272, 273 and its attendant lab courses PHYS 275. 276, 375 In addition, the 
student would be required to take PHYS 421-422 or 410-411 Required 
supporting courses are MATH 140, 141, and 241 or 246 

The program requires that the student maintain an average grade of C 
in all astronomy courses; moreover, the average grade of all the required 
physics, and mathematics courses must also be C or better Any student 
who wishes to be recommended for graduate work in astronomy must 
maintain a B average. He or she should also consider including several 
additional advanced courses beyond the minimum required, to be selected 
from astronomy, physics, and mathematics 

Detailed information on typical programs and alternatives to the stan- 
dard program can be found in the pamphlet entitled "Department Require- 
ments for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronomy" which is available 
from the Astronomy Program office 

Note: Some changes in the required program for astronomy majors are 
under discussion Check with the Astronomy Program office for further 
details 

Honors in Astronomy. The Honors Program offers students of exceptional 
ability and interest in astronomy an educational program with a number of 
special opportunities for learning There are many opportunities for part- 
time research participation which may develop into full-time summer 
projects An honors seminar is offered for advanced students, credit may 
be given for independent work or study; and certain graduate courses are 
open for credit toward the bachelor's degree 

Students for the Honors Program are accepted by the Department's 
Honors Committee on the basis of recommendations from their advisors 
and other faculty members. Most honors candidates submit a written 
report on their research project, which together with an oral comprehen- 
sive examination in the senior year, concludes the program which may lead 
to graduation "with honors (or high honors) in astronomy," 

Courses for Non-Science Majors. There are a variety of astronomy courses 
offered for those who are interested in learning about the subject but do 
not wish to major in it. These courses do not require any background in 
mathematics or physics and are geared especially to the non-science 
major ASTR 100 is a general survey course that briefly covers all of the 
major parts of astronomy. ASTR 110 is the lab that can be taken with or 
after ASTR 100 Several 300-level courses are offered primarily for non- 
science students who want to learn about a particular field in depth Such 
topics as the Solar System, Galaxies and the Universe, and Life in the 
Universe are offered. Non-science majors should not normally take ASTR 
200 or ASTR 350

Computer science is the study of computers and computational sys- 
tems — their theory, design, development, and application Principal areas 
within computer science include artificial intelligence, computer systems 
data-base systems, human factors, numencal analysis, programming lan- 
guages, software engineering, and theory of computing Computer sci- 
ence incorporates concepts from mathematics, engineering, and 
psychology 

A computer scientist is concerned with problem solving Of interest are 
problems ranging from the abstract to the practical - from determining 
what kinds of problems can be solved with computers and the complexity 
of their algorithmic solutions, to computer systems suitable for human use 
Computer scientists design and analyze algorithms to solve problems, and 
implement the designs by writing correct, efficient programs They design, 
develop, and study the performance of different computer architectures, 
operating systems, databases, and programming languages Computer 
scientists are interested in problems pertaining to the modeling of human 
behavior (e g . expert systems, robotics) as well as those involving exten- 
sive numerical computations 

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science is 
designed to prepare students for employment and graduate work. The 
program begins with mathematical foundations of programming methods 



Jointly with Computer Science Center 



It includes a wide range of courses which provide breadth and which 
enable each student to select areas of individual interest

Geology 



Professor and Chair: Chang 

Associate Professors: Candela, Ridky, Segovia, Siegrist. Stifel, Weid- 

ner. Wylie 

Assistant Professors: McLellan. Nielsen 

Geology is the basic science of the earth In its broadest sense, geol- 
ogy concerns itself with planetary formation and modification with empha- 
sis on the study of the planet earth This study directs its attention to the 
earth's internal and external structure, matenals, chemical and physical 
processes and its physical and biological history Geology concerns itself 
with the application of geological principles and with application of phys- 
ics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics to the understanding of our 
planet 

Geological studies thus encompass understanding the development of 
life from the fossil record, the mechanics of crustal movement, and earth- 
quake production, the evolution of the oceans and their interaction with 
land, the origin and emplacement of mineral and fuel resources and the 
determination of man's impact on the geological environment. 

Geological scientists find employment in government, industrial, and 
academic establishments In general, graduate training is expected for 
advancement to the most rewarding positions Most industrial positions 
require an Master of Science degree Although some sectors of the geolog- 
ical industry, such as the petroleum industry, are subject to cyclical 
employment conditions, most sectors are enjoying a strong employment 
outlook. Strong areas of employment include: mineral resource consump- 
tion, land management, hydrology, remote sensing, and virtually all areas 
of environmental studies At this time, students with the Bachelor of Sci- 
ence, particularly those with supportive training in statistics and computer 
science, can find satisfactory employment However, graduate school is 
strongly recommended for those students desiring a professional career in 
the geosciences 

The Geology Program includes a broad range of undergraduate 
courses to accommodate both geology majors and students interested in 
selected aspects of the science of the earth Opportunities exist for under- 
graduate research projects, on a personal level, between students and 
faculty members 

The geology curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of indus- 
try, graduate school and government. However, students may select, at 
their option, geology electives that are designed for a particular interest, 
rather than for the broad needs of a professional career. All required 
geology courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. An 
average of C is required in the supporting courses. Courses required for 
the B.S in geology are listed below.

The program in mathematics leads to a degree of Bachelor of Science 
in mathematics and offers students training in mathematics and statistics 
in preparation for graduate work, teaching, and positions in government or 
industry 

A student intending to ma|or in mathematics should complete the 
introductory sequence MATH 140, 141, 240. 241 or the corresponding 
honors sequence MATH 150, 151, 250, 251, and should have an average 
grade of at least B and no grade less than C in these courses. 

Each mathematics ma|or will complete with a grade of C or better the 
following; 

1 CMSC 1 12-1 13 or CMSC 1 10 or ENES 240 or a CMSC course having 
CMSC 110 or 113 as a prerequisite 

2 MATH 143, or MATH 256, or an upper level MATH/MAPL course having 
CMSC 110 as a prerequisite. 

3. Eight MATH/MAPUSTAT courses at the 400 level or above, at least 
four of which are taken on the College Park Campus. The eight 
courses will include: 

(a) MATH 410-41 1 (Students successfully completing MATH 250-251 
are exempted from MATH 410-411 and receive credit for two 
upper level courses ) 

(b) One course from among MATH 401, MATH 405, or MAPL 471, or 
the sequence MAPL 466-467 

(c) One course from among MATH 414, MATH 415, MATH 462, MATH 
436, or MATH 246 If MATH 246 is chosen, it will not count as one of 
the eight upper-level courses. 

(d) The remaining 400 level MATH/MAPUSTAT courses are elec- 
tives, but cannot include any of the following MATH 400, 461, 
478 through 488, or STAT 464 EDCI 451 may be used to 
replace one of the four elective upper level mathematics 
courses. 

Undergraduate Math/Stat Majors with an interest in applied 
mathematics are permitted with the approval of the Undergrad- 
uate Office to sutistitute two courses (with strong mathematics 
content) from outside the Department of Mathematics for one of 
the four elective upper-level mathematics courses 

With the approval of an advisor, the qualified student may substi- 
tute appropriate 600 or 700 level courses for 400 level mathematics 
courses. 

4 In order to broaden the student's mathematical experience, each 
Math/Stat major must complete, with a grade of C or better, a course 
sequence in a supporting area Other sequences may be considered, 
on a case-by-case basis, by the Undergraduate Chair However, any 
sequence to be approved which does not appear in this list must make 
substantial use of mathematics, comparable to the sequences on this 
list 

(a) Physics. One of the following sequences: 

PHYS 161, 262, 263 (or ASTR 200)— engineering sequence 
PHYS 171, 272, 273 (or ASTR 200)— physics major sequence 
PHYS 141, 142, and an upper level course approved by the 
Department of Mathematics 

(b) ENES 110, PHYS 161, ENES 220 

(c) Computer Science. CMSC 112, 113, and any group of three 
courses (3-credit) from CMSC 211-477 that does not include 
CMSC 250, CMSC 400 or any CMSC courses cross-listed with 
mathematics The three courses might include 

CMSC 211 or 220, 311, 411 or 412 (aimed toward computer 

systems) 

CMSC 220, 420, 424 or 426 (aimed toward information 

processing) 

CMSC 330, 430, 432 or 435 (aimed toward program languages) 

CMSC 211 or 220, 311 and 330 (most general CMSC courses) 

(d) CHEM 103, 113, 233 

(e) Economics. ECON 201, 203, and two of the following (including 
one of ECON 405, 406) ECON 402, 405, 406, 431, 440, 441 

(f) Business. ECON 201 or 205 and any three of the following 
BMGT 220, 221, 340, 431, 434. 435 

(For business supporting area, MATH 411 can be replaced by 
STAT 410, provided one of the following courses is included among 
the eight 400-level math courses STAT 41 1 , 420, 450, MAPL 477 ) 



Within the Department of Mathematics there are a number of identifi- 
able areas which a student can pursue to suit his/her own goals and 
interests They are briefly described below Note that they do overlap and 
that a student need not confine himself/herself to one of them 
1 . Pure mathematics the courses which clearly belong in this area are: 
MATH 402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 410, 41 1, 414, 415, 417, 430, 432, 433, 
436, 444, 446, 447, 450: STAT 410, 411, 420 Students prepanng for 
graduate school in mathematics should include MATH 403, 405. 410 
and 41 1 in their programs MATH 463 (or 660) and MATH 432 (or 730) 
are also desirable Other courses from the above list and graduate 
courses are also appropriate 

2 Secondary teaching the following courses are required to teach math- 
ematics at the secondary level MATH 402 or 403. 430, and EDCI 451 
(EDCI 451 IS acceptable as one of the eight upper level math courses 
required for a mathematics major ) These additional courses are par- 
ticularly suited for students preparing to teach MATH 406, 444, 463, 
STAT 400 and 410 EDHD 300, EDPA 301 , EDCI 350 or 455, and EDCI 
390 are necessary to teach, before registering for these courses, the 
student must apply for and be admitted to teacher education 

3 Statistics For a student with a Bachelor of Arts seeking work requiring 
some statistical background, the minimal program is STAT 400-401 
To work primarily as a statistician, one should combine STAT 400-401 
with at least two more statistics courses, most suitably STAT 450 and 
STAT 440 A stronger sequence is STAT 410. 420, 450 This offers a 
better understanding and wider knowledge of statistics and is a gen- 
eral purpose program (i e , does not specify one area of application). 
For economics applications STAT 400, 401 , 440, 450, and MAPL 477 
should be considered For operations research MAPL 477 and/or STAT 
41 1 should be added or perhaps substituted for STAT 450 To prepare 
for graduate work, STAT 410 and 420 give the best background, with 
STAT 41 1 , 421 , 440, 450, and 460 added at some later stage 

4 Computational mathematics there are a number of math courses 
which emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics including 
the use of the computer They are MAPL 460, 466, 467, 477, and MATH 
475 Students interested in this area should take CMSC 112, 113 as 
early as possible, and CMSC 420, 440 are also suggested 

5 Applied mathematics the courses which lead most rapidly to applica- 
tions are the courses listed above in 3 and 4 and MATH 401 , 414, 415, 
436, 462, 463, 464 A student interested in applied mathematics 
should obtain, in addition to a solid training in mathematics, a good 
knowledge of at least one area in which mathematics is currently being 
applied Concentration in this area is good preparation for employment 
in government and industry or for graduate study in applied 
mathematics. 

Language. Since most of the non-English mathematical literature is written 
in French, German or Russian, students intending to continue studying 
mathematics in graduate school should obtain a reading knowledge of at 
least one of these languages 

Honors in Mathematics. The Mathematics Honors Program is designed for 
students showing exceptional ability and interest in mathematics Its aim is 
to give a student the best possible mathematical education Participants 
are selected by the Departmental Honors Committee during the first 
semester of their junior year To graduate with honors in mathematics they 
must pass a final written and oral comprehensive examination Six credits 
of graduate work or three credits in a graduate course and three credits of 
independent study in mathematics approved by the Honors Committee are 
also required The rest of the program is flexible Independent work is 
encouraged and can be done in place of formal coursework 

The department also offers a special mathematics department honors 
calculus sequence (MATH 150, 151, 250, 251) for promising freshmen with 
a strong mathematical background (usually including calculus) Enrollment 
in the sequence is normally by invitation but any interested student may 
apply to the Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee for admission. 

Participants in the General Honors Program may also enroll in special 
honors sections of the regular calculus sequence (MATH 140H, 141H, 
240H, 241 H). They may also enroll in the honors calculus sequence if 
invited by the Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee However, 
the mathematics departmental honors calculus sequence and the General 
Honors Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does not imply accept- 
ance in the other 

Neither honors calculus sequence is prerequisite for participating in the 
Mathematics Honors Program, and students in these sequences need not 
be mathematics majors 

Pi Mu Epsilon. The local chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, national honorary mathe- 
matics fraternity, meets frequently to discuss mathematical or educational 
topics of interest to undergraduates The programs are open to the public 

Placement in Mathematics Courses. The Department of Mathematics has 
a large offering to accommodate a great variety of backgrounds, interests. 
and abilities The department permits a student to take any course for 
which he or she has the appropriate background regardless of formal 
coursework For example, a student with a high school calculus course 
may be permitted to begin in the middle of the calculus sequence even if 



other Computer, Mathematical & Physical Sciences Departments, Programs, & Curricula 83 



he or she does not have advanced standing Students may obtain under 
graduate credit tor mathematics courses in any of the following ways 
passing the appropriate CEEB Advanced Placement Examination, passing 
standardized CLEP examinations, and through the department's Credit- 
by-Examination Students are urged to consult with advisors from the 
Department of Mathematics to assist with proper placements 

Statistics and Probability, and Applied Mathematics. Courses in statistics 

and probability and applied mathematics are offered by the Department of 

Mathematics These courses are open to nonmajors as well as majors, and 

carry credit in mathematics Students wishing to concentrate in the above 

may do so by choosing an appropriate program under the Department of 

Mathematics

' Institute for Ptiysical Science and Technology 

The Department of Meteorology offers a number of courses of interest 
to undergraduate students These courses provide an excellent under- 
graduate background for those students who wish to do graduate work in 
the fields of atmospheric and oceanic science, meteorology, air pollution, 
and other environmental sciences. The interdisciplinary nature of studies in 
meteorology and physical oceanography assures that all science-oriented 
students will gam a broadened view of physical science as a whole, as well 
as the manner in which the sciences may be applied to understand the 
behavior of our environment 

Undergraduate students interested in pursuing a bachelor's degree 
program preparatory to further study or work in meteorology are urged to 
consider the Physical Sciences Program, in which they can specialize in 
meteorology It is important that students who anticipate this specialization 
should consult the Physical Sciences Program advisor representing the 
Department of Meteorology as early as possible in their studies 

Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the study of the atmosphere 
requires a firm background in the basic sciences and mathematics To be 
suitably prepared for 400-level courses in meteorology, the student should 
have the following background: either the physics major series PHYS 
191-296 or the series PHYS 161, 262, 263; the mathematics series MATH 
140, 141,240.241 and either the series CHEM 103. 113orCHEM 105, 115 
See the section on course descriptions for electives in meteorology 

Students who may be preparing for graduate education in meteorology 
are strongly advised to pursue further coursework from among the areas of 
physics, applied mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and statistics 
to supplement coursework in meteorology With proper counseling from 
the Department of Meteorology advisor, the student wishing to graduate 
with an MS, degree in meteorology may achieve that goal in five years from 
the inception of university studies-

Purpose. This program is suggested for many types of students: those 
whose interests cover a wide range of the physical sciences: those whose 
interests have not yet centered on any one science; students interested in 
a career in an interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences: students 
who seek a broader undergraduate program than is possible in one of the 
traditional physical sciences; students interested in meteorology; 
preprofessional students (prelaw, pre-medical), or students whose inter- 
ests in business, technical writing, advertising or sales require a broad 
technical background This program can also be useful for those planning 



science-oriented or technical work in the urban field the urban studies 
courses must be taken as electives Students contemplating this program 
as a basis for preparation for secondary school science teaching are 
advised to consult the Science Teaching Center staff of the College of 
Education for additional requirements for teacher certification 

The Physical Sciences Program consists of a basic set of courses in 
physics, cfiemistry, and mathematics, followed by a variety of courses 
chosen from these and related disciplines astronomy, geology, meteorol- 
ogy, computer science, and the engineering disciplines Emphasis is 
placed on a broad program as contrasted with a specialized one 

Students are advised by members of the Physical Sciences Commit- 
tee This committee is composed of faculty members from each of the 
represented disciplines Assignment of advisor depends on the interest of 
the student, e g , one interested principally in chemistry will be advised by 
the chemistry member of the committee Students whose interests are too 
general to classify in this manner will normally be advised by the chair of 
the committee 

More detailed information concerning the Physical Sciences Program is 
available from the CMPS Undergraduate Office, Math Building, Y-2300 

The Curriculum. The basic courses include MATH 140, 141 and one other 
math course for which MATH 141 is a prerequisite (1 1 or 12 credits); CHEM 
103 and 11 3, or 105 and 115 (8 credits); PHYS 162, 262, 263(11 credits); or 
191, 192 , 195, 196, 295, 296 (18 credits), or CMSC 110 (4 credits); or 112/ 
113 (8 credits). 

The choice of the physics sequence depends on the student's future 
aims and his/her background PHYS 161. 262, 263 is the standard 
sequence recommended for most physical science majors This sequence 
will enable the student to continue with intermediate level and advanced 
courses Students desiring a strong background in physics are urged to 
enroll in PHYS 191 -294 This is the sequence also used by physics majors 
and leads directly into the advanced physics courses 

Beyond these basic courses the student must complete twenty-four 
credits at the 300 or 400 level, chosen from any three of the following 
disciplines: chemistry, physics, mathematics (including statistics), astron- 
omy, geology, meteorology, computer science, and one of the engineering 
disciplines, subject to certain limitations The twenty-four distributive cred- 
its must be at the upper level (300-400) and shall be distributed so that at 
least SIX credits are earned in each of the three selected areas of concen- 
tration A grade of C or better must be earned in both basic and distributive 
requirement courses. 

Engineering courses used for one of the options must all be from the 
same department, eg, all must be ENAE courses, or a student may use a 
combination of courses in ENCH, ENNU, and ENMA, which are all offered 
by Department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering; courses offered as 
engineering sciences, ENES, will be considered as a department for these 
purposes 

Because of the wide choice and flexibility within the program, students 
are required to submit for approval a study plan during their junior year, 
specifying the courses they wish to use in satisfying the requirements of 
ttie major. 

Students who wish to depart from the stipulated curriculum may pre- 
sent their proposed program for approval by the Physical Science Commit- 
tee, An honors program is available to qualified students in their senior 
year 

Certain courses offered in the fields included in the program are not 
suitable for physical science majors and cannot count as part of the 
requirements of the program. These include any courses corresponding to 
a lower level than the basic courses specified above (eg, MATH 115), 
some of the special topics courses designed for non-science students, as 
well as other courses A complete listing of "excluded " courses is available 
from the CMPS Undergraduate Office

The Physics Program includes a broad range of undergraduate courses 
designed to satisfy the needs of almost every student, from the advanced 
physics major to the person taking a single introductory physics course In 
addition, there are various opportunities for personally directed studies 
between student and professor, and many undergraduate research oppor- 
tunities also are available For further information consult "Undergraduate 
Study in Physics" available from the department 

Courses for Non-Majors. The department offers several courses which are 
intended for students other than physics maprs PHYS 101, 102, 106, 111, 
and 112 without a laboratory and PHYS 114 and 117 with laboratory are 
designed to satisfy the University Studies distribution requirements (PHYS 
106 may be taken with the lab PHYS 107 to satisfy the lab requirement; 
PHYS 102 taken with the lab PHYS 103 similarly satisfies the lab require- 
ment). PHYS 121. 122, or 141, 142 satisfy the requirements for professional 
schools such as medical and dental, and PHYS 161, 262, 263 satisfy the 
introductory physics requirement for most engineering programs PHYS 
318 and 499F are one-semester courses stressing contemporary topics for 
those who have completed a year of one of the above sequences In 
addition, PHYS 420 is a one-semester modern physics course for 
advanced students in science or engineering. Either the course sequence 
161, 262, 263, or the Physics major sequence 171, 272, and 273* is suitable 
for mathematics students and those who major in other physical sciences.

Science Communications 

The University of Maryland offers several interdisciplinary approaches 
to the training of science communicators, ranging from specialization in 
one science or engineering with background in communication to special- 
izing in journalistic communication with background coursework in the 
sciences Each of the several program options can be tailored to the needs 
of individual students 

Undergraduate students interested in science communications can 
choose from a wide range of possibilities For example, some may want a 
career writing about the general happenings of the day in the physical and 
life sciences, or some students may prefer wnting about the span from a 
pure science to its applied technology Others may prefer writing about 
one field — such as agronomy, astronomy, geology — and its impact on 
society — in ecological problems, space exploration, and plate tectonics 

The following are several approaches Writing about the physical sci- 
ences: A recommended approach would be to take the Physical Sciences 
Program with a minor in journalism The Physical Sciences Program con- 
sists of a basic set of courses in physics, chemistry, and mathematics, 
followed by a variety of courses chosen from these and related disciplines: 
astronomy, geology, meteorology, and computer science 

Writing about the life sc/ences; A recommended approach would be to 
take the Biological Sciences Program with a minor in journalism The Bio- 
logical Sciences Program includes work in botany, entomology, microbi- 
ology, and zoology, and introduces the student to the general pnnciples 
and methods of each of these biological sciences 

Writing about engineering: A recommended approach would be to 
take the B S -Engineering Program with a minor in journalism The B.S.- 
Engineering Program blends two or three fields of engineering or applied 
science 

Writing about a specific field: A recommended approach would be to 
take a department major in any of the sciences, agriculture, or engineering 
and a minor in journalism 

Journalism combined with an overview of the sciences: A journalism 
major could take selected science courses that provide a familanty with 
scientific thought and application

College of Engineering 

Dean: Dieter 

The College of Engineering offers four-year programs leading either to 
the degree of Bachelor of Science with curriculum designation in Aero- 
space Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil 
Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechani- 
cal Engineering, or to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering 
with an Engineering option One example of the Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering is Nuclear Engineering All of these programs are accredited 
by the Accreditation Board for Engmeenng and Technology In addition to 
the accredited programs, the college also offers an Applied Science option 
tor the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree In addition, each of the 
foregoing degree programs may be pursued through the five-year Mary- 
land Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education The engineering pro- 
grams integrate these elements (1) basic sciences, including mathemat- 
ics, physics, chemistry: (2) engmeenng sciences including mechanics of 
solids and fluids, engineering materials, thermodynamics, electricity, and 
magnetism; (3) professional studies in major fields of engineering speciali- 
zation; and (4) general studies including liberal arts and social studies as 
part of the University Studies Program. Each program lays a broad base for 
continued learning after college in professional practice, in business and 
industry, in public service, or in graduate study and research 

General Information. Increasingly, the boundary between engineers and 
applied scientists or applied mathematicians becomes less distinct. The 



96 College of Engineering 



various branches o( engineering similarly interact with each other, as tech- 
nical problems become more sophisticated, and require a combined attack 
from several disciplines The engineer occupies an intermediate position 
between science and the public, because, in addition to understanding the 
scientific pnnciples of a situation, he/she is concerned with the timing, 
economics and values that define the useful application of those 
principles. 

High School Preparation. Preparation for pursuing an engineering degree 
curriculum begins in the freshman or sophomore year of high school The 
time required to complete the various degree programs may be extended 
beyond the four years cited in this catalog to the extent that an incoming 
student may be deficient in his/her high school preparation Pre-engineer- 
ing students normally enroll in an academic program in high school The 
course of study should include 3-1/2 to 4 years of college preparatory 
mathematics (including algebra, geometry, tngonometry. and precalculus 
mathematics) In addition, students should complete one year each of 
physics and chemistry 

Curricula for the various engineenng departments are given In this 
catalog to illustrate how the programs can be completed in four years 
These curricula are rigorous and relatively difficult for the average student 
Surveys have shown that only about one-third to one-half of the students 
actually receive an engineering degree in four years The majority of stu- 
dents (whether at Maryland or at other engineering schools nationwide) 
complete the engineering program in four and one-half to five years It is 
quite feasible for a student to stretch out any curriculum, this may be 
necessary or desirable for a vanety of reasons. However, students should 
seek competent advising in order to ensure that courses are taken in the 
proper sequence. 

Structure of Engineering Curricula. Courses in the normal curriculum or 
program and prescribed credit hours leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections pertain- 
ing to each department in the College of Engineering No student may 
modify the prescribed number of hours without special permission from the 
dean of the college The courses in each curriculum may be classified in 
the following categories: 

1, Courses in the University Studies Program Requirements 

2. Courses in the physical sciences — mathematics, chemistry, physics 

3 Collateral engineering courses — engineering sciences, and other 
courses approved for one curriculum but offered by another 
department 

4 Courses in the major department A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution of courses from the department chair and 
the dean of the college. 

The courses in each engineering curriculum, as classified above, form a 
sequential and developmental pattern in subject matter. In this respect, 
curricula in engineering may differ from curricula in other colleges Some 
regulations which are generally applicable to all students (see the Aca- 
demic Regulations) may need clarification for purposes of orderly adminis- 
tration among engineering students Moreover, the College of Engineering 
establishes policies which supplement the University regulations 

Sample schedules are available as examples of ways to fulfill gradua- 
tion requirements in eight semesters. Many students find that it is neces- 
sary to extend their schedule to nine or ten semesters 

Basic Format of the Freshman-Sophomore Years in Engineering. The 

freshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to lay a strong 
foundation in mathematics, physical sciences, and the engineering sci- 
ences upon which the student will later develop a professional program 
during the upper division (junior and senior) years The college course 
requirements for the freshman year are the same for all students, regard- 
less of their intended academic program, and about 75 percent of the 
sophomore year course requirements are common, thus affording the 
student a maximum flexibility in choosing a specific area of engineering 
specialization Although the engineering student selects a major field at 
ttie start of the sophomore year, this intramural program commonality 
affords the student the maximum flexibility of choice of interdepartmental 
transfer up to the end of the sophomore year 



Admissions 

Freshman: Admission to the College of Engineering is competitive for both 
freshmen and transfers Applicants who have designated a major within 
the College of Engineering will be selected for admission on the basis of 
academic promise and available space Different admissions criteria may 
be in effect for the various engineering departments Applicants admissi- 
ble to the University but not to the college will be offered admission to pre- 
engineering A Pre-engineenng major status does not assure eventual 
admission to the College of Engineering Because of space limitations 
the College of Engineering may not be able to offer admission to all 
qualified applicants. The College Park Campus strongly urges early 
application. Minority and women students are encouraged to apply for 
admission For consideration of appeals for admission contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions 



Transfer- Admission to the College of Engineering is competitive for trans- 
fer students Applicants who have designated a major within the college of 
Engineering will be selected for admission on the basis of academic prom- 
ise and available space Transfer applicants must compete lor enrollment 
in the College based upon the criteria in effect lor the semester during 
which the student wishes to enroll Because of space limitations the 
College of Engineering may not be able to offer admission to all quali- 
fied applicants. The College Park Campus strongly urges early applica- 
tion. Minority and women students are encouraged to apply for admission 
For consideration of appeals for admission contact the Office of Under- 
graduate Admissions 

College Regulations 

1 The responsibility for proper registration and for satisfying stated pre- 
requisites for any course must rest with the student — as does the 
responsibility for proper achievement in courses in which the student 
is enrolled Each student should be familiar with the provisions of this 
catalog, including the Academic Regulations 

2. Required courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry have high- 
est priority: and it is strongly recommended that every engineering 
student register for mathematics and chemistry — or mathematics and 
physics — each semester until the student has fully satisfied require- 
ments of the College of Engineering in these subjects 

3 To be eligible for a bachelor's degree in the College of Engineering, a 
student must have an overall average of at least a C — 2 and a grade 
of C or better in all courses with an EN prefix Responsibility for 
knowing and meeting all degree requirements for graduation in any 
curriculum rests with the student 

4 A University Studies Program is required of students who entered 
UMCP beginning in May 1980 The University Studies Program 
replaces the General University Requirements for students who 
entered in May 1980 and thereafter Students who matnculated prior 
to that date may elect to satisfy either the General University Require- 
ments or the new University Studies Program All students who matric- 
ulated in the Summer 1978 session or later, must complete six credits 
of English composition 

5 All degree programs in the College of Engineering require a minimum 
of 120 credits plus satisfaction of all department, college, and Univer- 
sity Studies Program requirements Students should be aware that for 
all currently existing engineering programs the total number of credits 
necessary for the degree will exceed 120 by some number that will 
depend on the specific major and the student's background, espe- 
cially in English and mathematics. 

Basic Freshman Curriculum in Engineering. All freshmen in the College of 

Engineering are required to complete the following basic curriculum for 
freshmen regardless of whether tfie student plans to proceed through one 
of the major fields designated baccalaureate degree programs or follow 
any of the multidisciplinary non-designated degree curricula that are spon- 
sored by the college.

of study MATH 141 and PHYS 161 are prerequisites for many courses 
required in the sophomore year ENES 110 should be taken in summer 
sctiool or the fall semester 

• Qualified students may elect to lake CHEM 105 and 115 (4 or hrs each) 
instead of CHEM 103 and 113 

The Sophomore Year in Engineering. With the beginning of the sophomore 
year the student selects a sponsoring academic department (Aerospace. 
Agncultural. Chemical. Civil, Electrical. Fire Protection, or Mechanical Engi- 
neenng), and this department assumes the responsibility for the student's 
academic guidance, counseling and program planning from that pxJint until 
the completion of the degree requirements of that department as well as 
the college For the specific requirements, see the curriculum listing in 
each engineering department 

Engineering science courses represent a common core of basic mate- 
rial offered to students of several different departments All freshman and 
sophomore students of engineering are required to take ENES 101. and 
ENES 1 10 Other ENES courses 220. 221 , 230. and 240 are specified by the 
different departments or taken by the student as electives The responsi- 
bility for teaching the engineering science courses is divided among the 
Civil. Mechanical, Chemical, and Electrical Engineenng Departments In 



College of Engineering Departments, Programs and Curricula 97 



addition to the core courses noted above, several courses of general 
interest to engineering or non-engineering students have been given ENES 
designations 

Engineering Transfer Programs. Most of the community colleges in Mary- 
land provide one- or two-year programs which have been coordinated to 
prepare students to enter the sophomore or junior year in engineering at 
The University of Maryland These curricula are identified as tngineering 
Transfer Programs in the catalogs of the sponsoring institutions The 
various associate degree programs in technology do not provide the prep 
aration and transferability into the professional degree curricula as ttie 
designated transfer programs 

A maximum of one-half of the degree credits (approximately sixty to 
sixty-five semester hours) may be transferred from a two year community 
college program 

There may be six to eight semester hours of major departmental 
courses at the sophomore level which are not offered by ttie schools 
participating in the engineering transfer program Students should investi- 
gate the feasibility of completing these courses in summer school at The 
University of Maryland before starting their junior coursework in the fall 
semester 

Dual Degree Program. The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative arrange- 
ment between the College of Engineering and selected liberal arts colleges 
which allows students to earn undergraduate degrees from both institu- 
tions in a five-year program. A student in the Dual Degree Program will 
attend the liberal arts college for approximately three academic years 
(minimum ninety hours) and The University of Maryland, College of Engi- 
neering for approximately two academic years (minimum hours 
required — determined individually, approximately sixty tiours). 

Dual degree candidates may participate in any of the baccalaureate 
degree programs in the College of Engineering, 

At the present time the participating institutions in Maryland and the 
District of Columbia are American University, Bowie State College. Colum- 
bia Union College, Coppin State College, Frostburg State College, Morgan 
State University, College of Notre Dame of Maryland, St Marys College of 
Maryland, Salisbury State College, Towson State University, Western 
Maryland College, Trinity College, and Washington College Also partici- 
pating in the program are Kentucky State University, King College in 
Tennessee, Shippensburg State University in nearby Pennsylvania, and 
Xavier in Louisiana. 



Instructional Television System 

Director: Seigel 

The University of Maryland's Instructional Television System (ITV) is 
headquartered in the College of Engineering Each semester, over fifty 
regularly scheduled graduate and undergraduate classes are held in ITVs 
studio classrooms, and broadcast "live" to government agencies and 
businesses in the greater Washington area. Students in the remote class- 
rooms watch the broadcasts on large TV monitors. They are able to talk to 
the instructors and other students using a phone-line "talk back" system. 
Through the ITV System, working adult students are able to progress 
toward graduate degrees, primanly in engineering and computer science, 
without leaving their places of work 

Professional Societies. Each of the major departments sponsors a student 

chapter or student section of a national engineering society. The student 
chapters sponsor a variety of activities including technical meetings, social 
gatherings and college or university service projects Students who have 
selected a major are urged to affiliate with the chapter in their department. 
The names of the organizations are: 

Alpha Nu Sigma 

American Helicopter Society 

American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics 

American Institute of Chemical Engineers 

American Nuclear Society 

American Society of Agricultural Engineers 

American Society of Civil Engineers 

American Society of Mechanical Engineers 

Black Engineers Society 

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers 

Society of Asian Engineers 

Society of Automotive Engineers 

Society of Fire Protection Engineers 

Society of Women Engineers 

Engineering Honor Societies. The College of Engineering and each of the 
engineering departments sponsors an honors society Nominations or invi- 
tations for membership are usually extended to junior and senior students 
based on scholarship, service and/or other selective criteria Some of the 
honors organizations are branches of national societies, others are local 
groups

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

Director: Winick 

Cooperative education is an optional academic program that com- 
bines classroom theory with career-related work expenence Through 
co-op, students alternate semesters of full-time study with semesters of 
full-time paid employment Co-op is designed to enhance a student's 
academic training, professional growth, and personal development The 
co-op program is available for students enrolled in all engineering disci- 
plines Co-op student's earn a Bachelor of Science degree with co-op 
distinction and complete the same academic requirements as all other 
students 

BENEFITS 

• Co-op integrates theory and application, bnnging new meaning to class- 
room studies and work experiences 

• Coop provides professional level experience to offer potential employers 
after graduation 

• Co-op confirms career decisions and provides invaluable professional 
contacts. 

• Co-op builds self-confidence and increases leadership skills 

• Coop helps finance educational 

ELIGIBILITY 

Undergraduates are eligible after completing their freshman and soph- 
omore engineering requirements provided they maintain a minimum 2.0 
grade point average Transfer students and graduate students are eligible 
after completing one semester at UMCP provided they maintain a 2.0 
grade point average. 

COMMITMENT 

Undergraduates alternate semesters of full-time study with semesters 
of full-time paid employment working for two semesters (20 weeks each) 
and one summer (10 weeks) Graduate students may follow a similar 
schedule or they may work full-time in the summer and part-time while they 
attend classes. All students are required to work the equivalent of 50 
weeks, 40 hours per week although many students choose to work addi- 
tional summers 

CONSIDERATIONS 

• Students are expected to work for the same employer throughout their 
co-op assignments so that they can be given increased levels of 
responsibility 

• Each work semester, students register for ENCO, a credit course, that 
maintains their status as full-time students. 

• At the end of each co-op assignment students are required to complete a 
work report. This report includes a detailed description of job responsibil- 
ities and other information related to the coop experience.

Aerospace engineering is concerned with the physical understanding, 
analysis, and design of aerospace vehicles operating within and above the 
atmosphere Such vehicles range from helicopters and other vertical take- 
off aircraft at the low speed end of the flight spectrum to spacecraft 
operating at thousands of miles per hour during entry into the atmospheres 
of the earth and other planets In between are general aviation and com- 
mercial transports flying at speeds well below and close to the speed of 
sound, and supersonic transports, fighters, and missiles which cruise at 
many times the speed of sound. Although each speed regime and each 



98 College of Engineering Departments, Programs and Curricula 



vehicle type poses its own special research, analysis and design problems, 
each can be addressed by a connmon set of technical specialities or 
disciplines 

Consider the high-speed flight of NASA's Space Shuttle The airflow 
over the wings, fuselage and tail surfaces create lift, drag and moments on 
the aircraft If the velocity is high enough, such as during reentry of the 
Space Shuttle into the earth's atmosphere, then the temperature of the 
airflow becomes extremely high, the air becomes chemically reactive, and 
heating of the vehicle's surface becomes a major problem The study of 
how and why the airflow produces these forces, moments and heating is 
called aerodynamics. In turn, the motion of the aircraft or space vehicle will 
respond to, indeed will be determined by, the aerodynamic forces and 
moments The study of the motion and flight path of such vehicles is called 
flight dynamics. Of course, while executing this motion, the vehicle must 
be structurally sound, that is, its surface and internal structure must be 
able to withstand the severe forces and loads associated with flight The 
study of the mechanical behavior of materials, stresses and strains, deflec- 
tions and vibrations that are associated with the structure of the vehicle 
itself IS called flight structures. In the same vein, the motion of any aircraft 
or space vehicle must be initiated and maintained by a propulsive mecha- 
nism such as the classic combination of a reciprocating engine with a 
propeller, or the more modern turbo|ets, ramjets, and rockets The study of 
the physical fundamentals of how these engines work is called flight 
propulsion. Finally, all of the above are synthesized into one system with a 
specific application — such as a complete transport aircraft or a missile — 
through a discipline called aerospace vehicle design. 

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at The University of Mary- 
land offers a rigorous and balanced education which includes all of the 
above disciplines The goal of this program is to create professional aero- 
space engineers with an understanding of the physical fundamentals 
underlying atmospheric and space flight, and with the capability of apply- 
ing this knowledge for research, analysis, and design purposes Ivloreover, 
the physical background and design synthesis that marks aerospace engi- 
neering education also prepares a student to work productively in other 
fields such as energy and surface transportation 

The facilities of the department include three subsonic wind tunnels 
(with test sections ranging from 2 by 2 ft. to 7 75 by 1 1 ft ), one supersonic 
tunnel, equipment for the static and dynamic testing of structural compo- 
nents, and a flight simulator The department's computing facilities include 
four minicomputers, several workstations and microcomputers and termi- 
nals providing access to the campus mainframes and several supercom- 
puting centers

Agricultural engineering utilizes both the physical and biological sci- 
ences to help meet the needs of our increasing world population for food 
and natural fiber while maintaining or improving the environment Scientific 
and engineering principles are applied to the design of equipment and 
buildings and to the development of methods to conserve and utilize soil 
and water resources for food and fiber production and recreation, utilize 
energy to improve labor efficiency and to reduce laborious and menial 
tasks, house and handle plants and animals to optimize production; 
improve the standard of housing for the rural population process food and 
fiber after harvest to maintain or increase their quality: handle waste prod- 
ucts from agricultural and aquacultural production units and processing 
plants: protect the health of agricultural, aquacultural and processing plant 
workers and production animals: and to maintain the flow of supplies and 
equipment to the agricultural and aquacultural production units and from 
these production units to the processing plants and to the consumer The 
agricultural engineer places emphasis on maintaining a high-quality envi- 
ronment while developing efficient and economical engineenng solutions 

The undergraduate curriculum provides opportunity to prepare for 
many interesting and challenging careers in design, management, 
research, education, sales, consulting, or international service The pro- 
gram of study includes a broad base of mathematical, physical, and engi- 
neering sciences combined with basic biological sciences. Twenty-two 
hours of electives give flexibility so that a student may plan a program 
according to his or her major interest.

Nuclear engineering deals with the practical use of nuclear energy from 
nuclear fission, fusion and radioisotope sources The major use of nuclear 
energy is in electric power generation Other uses are in the areas of 
chemical processing, medicine, instrumentation, and isotope tracer analy- 
sis The nuclear engineer is primarily concerned with the design and opera- 
tion of energy conversion devices ranging from very large reactors to 
miniature nuclear battenes, and with the use of nuclear reactions in many 
environmental, biological and chemical processes Because of the wide 
range of uses for nuclear systems, the nuclear engineers find interesting 
and diverse career opportunities in a variety of companies and 
laboratories 

Programs of study in nuclear engineenng at the undergraduate and

Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering 

General Regulations for the B.S. — Engineering Degree. All undergraduate 
students in engineering will select their major field sponsoring department 
at the beginning of their second year regardless of whether they plan to 
proceed to a designated or an undesignated degree A student wishing to 
elect the undesignated degree program may do so at any time following 
the completion of the sophomore year, or a minimum of fifty earned credits 
towards any engineering degree, and at least one semester prior to the 
time the student expects to receive the baccalaureate degree As soon as 
the student elects to seek an undesignated baccalaureate degree in engi- 
neenng. the student's curriculum planning, guidance, and counseling will 
be the responsibility of the "Undesignated Degree Program Advisor " in the 
primary field department At least one semester before the expected 
degree is to be granted, the student must file an "Application for 
Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering" vii\h the deans office of the College of Engineenng The 
candidacy form must be approved by the chair of the primary field depart- 
ment, the pnmary engineering, and the secondary field advisors and the 
college faculty committee on "Undesignated Degree Programs " This 
committee has the responsibility for implementing all approved policies 
pertaining to this program and reviewing and acting on the candidacy 
forms filed by the student 

Specific University and college academic regulations apply to this 
undesignated degree program in the same manner as they apply to the 
conventional designated degree programs For example, the academic 
regulations of the University apply as stated in Part 2 of this catalog, and 
the college requirement of 2 00 factor in the major field dunng the junior 
and senior years apply For the purpose of implementation of such aca- 
demic rules, the credits in the primary engineering field and the credits in 
the secondary field are considered to count as the "major " for such aca- 
demic purposes 

Environmental Engineering. Environmental engineering is the application 

of basic engineering and science to the problem of the environment to 
ensure optimum environmental quality In recent years, humans have suf- 
fered a continually deteriorating environment A truly professional engineer 
involved in the study of environmental engineering must see the total 
picture and relate it to a particular mission whether this be air pollution, 
water quality control, environmental health, or solid and liquid waste dispo- 
sal The total picture includes urban systems design, socio-economic fac- 
tors, water resource development, and land and resource conservation 

A student who selects the B S -Engineering degree program can spe- 
cialize in environmental engineering by proper selection of primary and 
secondary fields from the wide selection of courses related to environmen- 
tal engineering given by the various departments in the college

Engineering-Medicine. Advanced technology is finding increasingly 
sophisticated applications in medical care delivery and research Pace- 
makers, heart assist pumps, kidney dialysis machines, and artificial limbs 
are only a few examples of the role of engineenng and technology in 
medicine In addition, diagnostic procedures and record keeping have 
been greatly enhanced by the use of computers and electronic testing 
equipment There is a growing need for physicians and researchers in the 
life sciences, having strong backgrounds in engineering, who can effec- 
tively utilize these technologies and who can work with engineers in 
research and development 

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree provides the student an 
excellent opportunity to develop a professional level of competence in an 
engineering discipline while at tfie same time meeting the entrance 
requirements for medical school Under the applied science opUon. the 
student could select any engineering field of most interest to him/her, and 
his or her secondary field would usually be chemistry or zoology. In addition 
to the medical school entrance requirements, he or she would complete 
twelve credits of advanced work in his or her secondary field 

Under the engineering option, the student would generally combine 
chemical engineering (as either primary or secondary field) with another 
engineering discipline This option allows the student to complete more 
advanced work in his/her primary field of engineering than does the applied 
science option Either option can be completed in a four-year period with 
careful planning and scheduling 

Options of the "B.S.-Engineering" Program. The "B S -Engineering" pro- 
gram IS designed to serve three primary functions: (1) to prepare those 
students who wish to use the breadth and depth of their engineering 
education as a preparatory vehicle for entry into post-baccalaureate study 
in such fields as medicine, law, or business administration, (2) to provide 
the basic professional training for those students who wish to continue 
their engineering studies on the graduate level in one of the new interdisci- 
plinary fields of engineering such as environmental engineering, bio-medi- 
cal engineering, systems engineering, and many others; and finally (3) to 
educate those students who do not plan a normal professional career in a 
designated engineering field but wish to use a broad engineering educa- 
tion so as to be better able to serve in one or more of the many auxiliary or 
management positions of engineering related industries. The program is 
designed to give the maximum flexibility for tailoring a program to the 
specific future career plans of the student To accomplish ttiese ob|ectives, 
the program has two optional paths: an engineering option and an applied 
science option 

The engineering option should be particularly attractive to those stu- 
dents contemplating graduate study or professional employment in the 
interdisciplinary engineering fields, such as environmental engineering, 
bio-engineering. bio-medical. and systems and control engineering, or for 
preparatory entry into a variety of newer or interdisciplinary areas of gradu- 
ate study For example, a student contemplating graduate work in environ- 
mental engineering might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or 
her program, a student interested in systems and control engineering 
graduate work might combine electrical engineering with aerospace, 
chemical, or mechanical engineering. 

The applied science option should be particularly attractive to those 
students who do not plan on professional engineering careers but wish to 
use the rational and developmental abilities fostered by an engineering 
education as a means of furthering career objectives Graduates of the 
applied science option may aspire to graduate work and an ultimate career 
in a field of science, law. medicine, business, or a variety of other attractive 
opportunities which build on a combination of engineering and a field of 
science Entrance requirements for law and medical schools can be met 
readily under the format of this program In the applied science program, 
any field in the University in which the student may earn a B.S degree is an 
acceptable secondary science field, thus affording the student a maximum 
flexibility of choice for personal career planning. 

Minimum Requirements. Listed below are the minimum requirements for 
the BS -Engineering degree with either an engineering option or an 
applied science option The sixty-six semester credit hours required for the 
completion of the junior and senior years are supenmposed upon the 
frestiman and sophomore curriculum of the chosen primary field of engi- 
neering The student, thus, does not make a decision whether to take the 
designated or the undesignated degree in an engineering field until the 
beginning of the junior year. In fact, the student can probably delay the 
decision until the spring term of the junior year with little or no sacrifice, 
thus affording the student ample time for decision Either program may be 
taken on the regular four-year format or under the fVlaryland Plan for Coop- 
erative Engineering Education

cifically excused, and if excused, fifteen semester hours 
of approved electives will be required — to satisfactorily 
complete a senior level project or research assignment 
relating the engineering and science fields of

Civil Engineering Curriculum 

Civil engineering is a people-serving profession, concerned with the 
planning, design, construction and operation of large complex systems 
that people in our society utilize and depend on in their daily lives. Civil 
engineering systems include buildings and bridges, water purification and 
distribution systems, highways, rapid transit and rail systems, ports and 
harbors, airports, tunnels and underground construction, dams, power 
generating systems, and structural components of aircraft and ships. Civil 
engineering also includes urban and city planning, water and land pollution 
and treatment problems, and disposal of hazardous wastes and chemi- 
cals The design and construction of these systems are only a part of the 
many challenges and opportunities faced by civil engineers. The recent 
revolution in computers, communications and data management has pro- 
vided new resources that are widely used by the professional civil engineer 
in providing safe, economical and functional facilities to serve our society. 

At both the undergraduate and graduate level, the department offers 
progranis of study in all six major areas of concentration in civil engineer- 
ing: construction engineering and management, environmental engineer- 
ing, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engi- 
neering, and water resources and remote sensing A total of 132 credit 
hours are required for a Bachelor's degree with emphasis in basic science 
(mathematics, chemistry and physics), engineenng science, (mechanics of 
materials, statics and dynamics), basic civil engineering core courses, and 
twenty-two credits of technical electives that may be selected from a 
combination of the six areas of civil engineenng concentration The present

The program in the Electrical Engineering Department features flexibil- 
ity by means of a broad elective structure (inside and outside the depart- 
ment) The student may attain breadth or specialization as he/she 
chooses 

Areas stressed include such fields as electronics, integrated circuits, 
solid state devices, lasers, communication engineering, information theory 
and coding engineering, system theory, computer software and hardware, 
particle accelerators, electro-mechanical transducers, energy conversion, 
and many others 

Apprenticeship programs allow qualified undergraduate students to 
work with research laboratory directors in the department, thus giving the 
student a chance for a unique experience in research and engineering 
design 

Projects in electrical engineering allow undergraduate students to do 
independent study under the guidance of a faculty member in an area of 
mutual interest 

The technological problems and needs of society are becoming stead- 
ily more complex The engineer is the intermediary between science and 
society To solve the problems of modern society he'she must fully under- 
stand the most modern devices and methodologies available To find the 
best solution he/she must have a broad education To find a solution that is 
also acceptable to society he/she must be concerned with the economic, 
ecologic. and human factors involved in the problem Finally, current 
problems frequently require a thorough knowledge of advanced mathe- 
matics and physics 

The curriculum of the Electrical Engineering Department reflects the 
diverse requirements cited above A basic mathematical, physical, and 
engineering sciences foundation is established in the first two years. Once 
this foundation is established, the large number of electrical engineering 
courses and the flexibility of the elective system allow a student to speciaP 
ize or diversify and to prepare for a career either as a practicing engineer or 
for more theoretically oriented graduate work 

To go along with this freedom, the department has a system of under- 
graduate advising The student is encouraged to discuss his/her program 
and career plans with the advisor in order to get maximum benefit from the 
curriculum

Fire Protection Engineering 

Professor and Chair: Bryan 

Assistant Professor: Mowrer 

Lecturer: Miike 

Lecturers (part-time): DiNenno, Ouintiere, Walton 

Fire protection engineering is concerned with the scientific and techni- 
cal problems of preventing loss of life and property from fire, explosion, and 
related hazards, and of evaluating and eliminating hazardous conditions 

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineering are relatively 
well-defined and the application of these principles to a modern industrial- 
ized society has become a specialized activity Control of the hazards in 
manufacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of measures 
for the protection but of the processes themselves Often the most effec- 
tive solution to the problem of safeguarding a hazardous operation lies in 
the modification of special extinguishing equipment The fire protection 
engineer must be prepared to decide in any given case what is the best 
and most economical solution of the fire prevention problem His or her 
recommendations are often based not only on sound principles of fire 
protection but on a thorough understanding of the special problems of the 
individual property. 

Modern fire protection utilizes a wide variety of mechanical and electri- 
cal equipment which the student must understand in principle before he or 
she can apply them to special problems The fire protection curriculum 
emphasizes the scientific, technical, and humanitarian aspects of fire pro- 
tection engineering and the development of the individual student 

The problems and challenges which confront the fire protection engi- 
neer include the reduction and control of fire hazards due to processes 
subject to fire or explosion in respect to design, installation and handling, 
involving both physical and human factors; the use of buildings and trans- 
portation facilities to restrict the spread of fire and to facilitate the escape 
of occupants in case of fire; the design, installation and maintenance of fire 
detection and extinguishing devices and systems; and the organization 
and education of persons for fire prevention and fire protection.

'Distinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The primary function of the mechanical engineer is to create devices, 
machines, structures, or processes which are used to advance the welfare 
of mankind Design, analysis, synthesis, testing, and control are the essen- 
tial steps in performing this function Certain aspects of the science and art 
of engineering are of particular importance to achieve a successful product 
or service Some of these aspects are those relating to the generation and 
transmission of mechanical power, the establishment of both experimental 
and theoretical models of mechanical systems, the design, control, and 
synthesis of components and systems, computer interfacing, the static 
and dynamic behavior of fluids, system optimization, and engineering and 
production management. 

There are many career opportunities in all of these areas In particular. 
the areas of design, systems analysis, management, consulting, research, 
maintenance, manufacturing, teaching, and sales offer challenging and 
rewarding futures Graduates from the University of Maryland are sought 
by national and local industries as well as Federal and State agencies and 
laboratories. 

Because of the wide variety of professional opportunities available to 
the mechanical engineer, the curriculum is designed to provide the student 
with a thorough training in basic fundamentals These include physics, 
chemistry, mathematics, computers, mechanics of solids and fluids, ther- 
modynamics, materials, heat transfer, controls, and design The curriculum 
includes basic laboratory courses in fluid mechanics, materials engineer- 
ing, electronic instrumentation and measurements, and a senior laboratory 
which provides an introduction to professional research and evaluation 
procedures. The students are introduced to the concept of design via 
machine design and energy conversion design courses, and seniors par- 
ticipate in a comprehensive design course during their final semester 
which IS frequently linked with an advisor and a problem from industry This 
experience helps the student anticipate the type of activities likely to be 
encountered after graduation and also helps to establish valuable contacts 
with professional engineers 

In order to provide flexibility for students to follow their own interests in 
Mechanical Engineering, students may choose to concentrate in either 
mechanical design or energy design in their senior year In addition, seniors 
may choose from a wide variety of elective courses such as courses in 
robotics, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, elec- 
tronic packaging, microprocessor theory, ocean engineering, finite ele- 
ment analysis, heating ventilation and air conditioning, solar energy, com- 
bustion, advanced fluid flow, and advanced mechanics, to list only a few A 
small number of academically superior undergraduate students are able to 
participate in Special Topic Problems courses in which a student and 
faculty member can interact on a one-to-one basis.

versity committees The faculty members, together with the graduate stu- 
dents and adjunct faculty (many of whom work in government or industry), 
form a lively and stimulating community in which students are exposed to 
many different viewpoints 

The department has modern, well-equipped teaching and research 
laboratones including a comfort research laboratory, a computer aided 
design laboratory, a computer aided merchandising laboratory, and an 
historic textiles/costume collection 

Students in Textiles and Consumer Economics may select one of four 
majors which offer diverse professional opportunities Specific careers 
depend on the major area of emphasis although there is overlapping of 
career opportunities in some instances reflecting similar course require- 
ments The majors offered by the department are as follows 
I Apparel Design. In this major students develop an understanding of 
the interrelationships between apparel design and apparel perform- 
ance Emphasis is placed on artistic expression and creativity, textile 
materials, and the design of apparel to meet different needs and 
different socio economic conditions Graduates are prepared for posi- 
tions as designers, assistant designers, stylists, fashion executives, 
fashion coordinators, consultants to the home sewing industry, or 
extension and consumer educators 

II. Textile Marketing/Fashion Merchandising. These two programs 
emphasize the marketing and retailing of textile products and com- 
bines a background in textile materials with courses in marketing, 
retailing and consumer behavior. Students may select an option in (a) 
textile marketing or (b) fashion merchandising. An internship experi- 
en'^G gives students the opportunity to apply what they have learned 
in class and prepares them for careers in marketing and retailing once 
they graduate Graduates completing the textile marketing option will 
be prepared for marketing positions with fiber, textile, or apparel com- 
panies. They may work in product development, sales, merchandising, 
promotion, market research, and management. Graduates completing 
the fashion merchandising option will be prepared for careers in retail- 
ing with department, specialty, or mass merchandising stores They 
may work in buying, merchandising, fashion coordination, publicity, 
personnel, and management 

III. Textile Science. This major emphasizes the scientific and technologi- 
cal aspects of textiles It is designed to provide students with a back- 
ground in textile materials and textile science including the engineer- 
ing and finishing of fabrics for specific end uses Many students in this 
major go on to graduate study Graduates are prepared for careers in 
industry and government They may work in research and testing 
laboratories, in consumer technical service and marketing programs, 
in quality control, in buying and product evaluation, and in consumer 
education and information programs. 

IV. Consumer Economics. This major combines economics and market- 
ing with the knowledge of basic consumer goods and services The 
program focuses on consumer decision-making and the degree to 
which the market place reflects consumer needs and preferences The 
subject matter includes consumption economics, marketing, con- 
sumer behavior, consumer law. and consumer product marketing. 
Graduates may work in the planning, marketing, and consumer rela- 
tions divisions of business and industry, in program development and 
analysis for government agencies or in consumer education programs 
in industry and government 

An internship program is available to all students majoring in the 
Department of Textiles and Consumer Economics during their senior year 
Students must apply for admission to the internship program, including the 
retailing internship, in the second semester of their junior year. 

A department Honors Program permits outstanding undergraduates to 
explore on an individual basis a program of work which will strengthen their 
undergraduate program and their professional interests Students 
selected for the program must have at least a "B" average to be consid- 
ered Students in the honors program participate in a junior honors seminar 
and present a senior thesis Students completing this program graduate 
with departmental honors 

In addition to the requirements of the major, students have the flexibility 
to take a concentration of courses in an area closely related to their major 
such as business, economics, family services, journalism, science, art and 
art history, or speech and dramatic art by carefully utilizing their free 
eleclives and University Studies Program requirements StOdenIs are 



assigned faculty advisors and are required to discuss their program of 
study with their advisor each semester 

To graduate, students must complete the required department and 
supporting courses. Human Ecology requirements and University Studies 
Program requirements Students should consult the current Undergradu- 
ate Catalog and department Major Guides and also consult with your 
faculty advisor All students must complete 120 credit hours to earn a

The College of Journalism at The University of Maryland stands at the 
doorstep of the nation's capital and the world's news center. It Is an ideal 
location for the study of journalism, public relations, and mass communica- 
tions because many of the world's important journalists, great news 
events, and significant communications activities are near at hand 

The college is within easy reach of four of the nation's top twenty 
newspapers, including the Baltimore Sun, the Wastiington Post, USA 
Today, and the production offices of the Wall Street Journal. The college 
also has easy access to the Washington press corps — the large bureaus of 
the Associated Press, United Press International, New York Times, Los 
Angeles Times, and many other Amencan and foreign newspapers, major 
networks and broadcasting news bureaus such as NBC, CBS. and ABC; 
many news, business, and special-interest magazines: and representa- 
tives of the book publishing industry. 

The college is close to the sources of news, including the White House, 
executive departments and agencies. Supreme Court, and Congress. It is 
near many major non-governmental representative bodies such as associa- 
tions, scientific and professional organizations, foreign representatives, 
and international agencies 

The college has six primary objectives; (1) to provide professional 
development, including training in skills and techniques necessary for 
effective communication: (2) to insure a liberal education for journalists and 
mass communicators, (3) to increase public understanding of journalism 
and mass communication: (4) to advance knowledge through research and 
publication, (5) to raise the quality of journalism through critical examina- 
tion and study: and (6) to provide a continuing relationship with profes- 
sional journalists and their societies. 

Accreditation 

The college is accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in 
Journalism and Mass Communications. The college is a member of the 
Association of Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication and the 
Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication 

Accredited journalism programs follow a policy which requires journal- 
ism majors to take about three-fourths of their coursework in areas other 
than journalism and related forms of communication The College of Jour- 
nalism follows this nationwide policy. In practical terms, this means that a 
journalism major may include no more than thirty credits of journalism and 
communications (such as radio-television-film or speech, with the excep- 
tion of the required speech course in public speaking) among the 120 
required tor the undergraduate degree. If a student offers more than 120 
credits tor graduation, the number of journalism and communications cred- 
its may be higher. 

Journalism majors may not minor in radio-television-film or speech.

This program is designed for the student who is interested in a broader 
education in the biological sciences than is available in the programs for 
majors in the various departments of the Life Sciences It is appropriate for 
the entering student who wishes to explore the various areas of biology 
before specializing in the program offered by a single department, or for 
the student desiring to concentrate on a broad area of biology such as 
genetics or marine biology 

Advising of students in the General Biological Sciences Program is 
coordinated in a central advising office established by Life Sciences There 
are three parts to this major (1) basic introductory courses in biology; (2) 
supporting courses in math, chemistry, and physics, and (3) the advanced 
program In the advanced program, students select one of several areas to 
emphasize, including marine biology, genetics, ecology, physiology, zool- 
ogy, botany, microbiology, chemistry, animal sciences, and entomology. 
Alternatively, the student may elect to remain broad for the entire program, 
in which case the student is said to be a generalist. Individual programs to 
meet specific career goals may be developed between the student and the 
coordinating advisor In each case, advising will be carried out in the 
department in which most of the work is to be taken. For careful planning 
and advising, students are urged to determine their emphasis early and no 
later than the beginning of the junior year Changes in emphasis normally 
cannot be made during the senior year without delaying graduation 

The General Biological Sciences Honors Program is a special program 
for exceptionally talented and promising students It emphasizes the schol- 
arly approach to independent study Information about this honors pro- 
gram may be obtained from the coordinating advisor 

Preparation for graduate study in a specialized area of biology is readily 
accomplished under this program by the judicious selection of junior-senior 
level courses in the proposed area of graduate concentration Students in 
the program who are attempting to meet the requirements of a preprofes- 
sional program should also seek advice from advisors of those respective 
programs Students in the program who wish to prepare for secondary 
school science teaching should contact the staff of the Science Teaching 
Center of the College of Education for information concerning require- 
ments for certification

The Zoology program is designed to give each student an appreciation 
of the diversity of problems studied by zoologists, an opportunity to 
explore in depth more specialized areas, and an appreciation of the nature 
of observation or expenmentation appropriate to investigations within 
these fields 

All majors are required to complete a minimum of thirty credit hours in 
zoology with a grade of C in their major and an average grade of C in the 
supporting courses Four required core courses provide the prerequisite 
background information for junior-senior level courses in the major It is not 
necessary to complete all four core courses before registering for junior- 
senior level courses, but it is strongly recommended that all four be com- 
pleted by the end of the junior year Students should have earned a 
minimum of fiftysix credits before attempting upper level credits. The 
required core courses are:

The Agricultural Experiment Station 

The Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station, headquartered on the 
UMCP Campus, is a state-wide mission-oriented agency conducting 
research in laboratones at UMCP or UMES or at one of its nine field 
locations throughout Maryland The research is performed by faculty with 
the assistance of research assistants, technicians, graduate and under- 
graduate students 

The objective of the Expenment Station is to enhance all aspects of 
Maryland agriculture for the benefit of farmers, farm-related businesses 
and consumers through optimal utilization, conservation, and protection of 
soil and water resources Genetic principles are studied and applied in the 
improvement of turf and ornamentals, vegetable crops, field crops, poultry, 
dairy cattle, and other animals Similarly, pathological principles are of 
concern in improvement of methods of identification, prevention and/or 
control of plant and animal diseases Biochemistry plays an important role 
in evaluating the nutritional quality of crops produced, the efficiency of 
feed conversion by poultry and animals and, the quality of plant and animal 
products for human consumption Research in progress is also concerned 
with improvement of processing systems to enhance food quality 

Improved techniques which include waste utilization or disposal require 
an examination of soil-moisture-plant relationships and plant, bird, or 
animal-environment relationships as well as studies of the applications of 
engineenng for producing or maintaining the optimal environment for bio- 
logical systems. 

Studies of biological, chemical and mechanical methods and improved 
chemical pest control in the field, forests, food processing chain and the 
home are continuous 

The socioeconomics of changing agricultural systems in terms of farm 
policy and rural development are a major research area 

The Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station was established in 1888 
to comply with the Hatch Act of 1887 authorizing the establishment of an 
agricultural experiment station at the Land Grant Colleges The station is 
supported by Federal funds. State appropriations, grants and contracts 
with State and Federal agencies, and by gifts or other support from individ- 
ual and farm-related businesses and industry 



Cooperative Extension Service 

As part of the total university, the Cooperative Extension Service takes 
The University of Maryland to the people of Maryland, wherever they are In 
its role as the "off-campus, non-credit, out-of-classroom " arm of the Univer- 
sity, It extends the classroom to all parts of the State With its uniquely 
effective educational delivery system, the Cooperative Extension Service 
helps people to help themselves, to define their problems, to evaluate 
reasonable alternatives, and to generate action to solve their problems 

The Cooperative Extension Service was authorized by Congress in 
1914 under the Smith-Lever Act and is funded by a three-way partnership 
Support comes from the Federal government for both 1862 and 1890 Land 
Grant institutions: and from the State and all twenty three counties and 
Baltimore City in Maryland 

General administrative offices of the Maryland Cooperative Extension 
Service are located at The University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) and 
the administration of the 1890 Program (an integral part of the total MCES 
effort) IS from offices at The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) 

Off-campus faculty, located in each county and in Baltimore City, are 
the "front lines " that deliver University resources in ways people can use 



College of Physical Education, Recreation and Health 115 



them effectively These field faculty rely on campus based Cooperative 
Extension specialists at botti UMCP and UMES to provide up-to-date, 
meaningful information and for aid in planning and conducting relevant 
educational programs Many of thie Cooperative Extension Service faculty 
at the State level carry |oint appointments with teaching and research, 
especially in the UMCP College of Agriculture and College of Life Sciences 

The Maryland Cooperative Extension Service delivers programs in eight 
major initiative areas These include ( 1 ) agricultural profitability; (2) natural 
resources, (3) diet, nutrition, and health. (4) human capital development; 
(5) family economic stability, (6) agricultural technology for urban audi- 
ences, (7) profitability of marine industries, (8) enhancing community vital- 
ity. Working through organized groups such as 4-H and homemakers' 
clubs, farmers' groups and cooperatives, agribusiness firms, w/atermens 
organizations, civic and social organizations, governmental agency per- 
sonnel, and elected officials, the Cooperative Extension Service multiplies 
its effects It maintains a close working relationship with the Maryland 
Department of Agriculture and other State agencies and organizations 
More than 22,000 volunteers in Maryland give generously of their time and 
energy 

Time-tested, informal educational methods used are farm and home 
visits, phone and office conferences, and structured events such as meet- 
ings, teaching institutes, workshops, and training conferences Teaching 
events include tours, field days, and demonstrations Indirect communica- 
tions include circular letters, radio and television programs, newspaper 
articles and columns, articles in specialized publications, and exhitjits to 
reach a statewide audience 

The Cooperative Extension Service is committed to making its pro- 
grams available to all people without regard to race, color, creed, sex, 
marital status, personal appearance, age. national origin, political affilia- 
tion, or handicap 

In each county and in Baltimore City competent extension agents con- 
duct educational work in program areas consistent with the needs of the 
citizenry and as funds permit The county staff is supported by a faculty of 
specialists in the College of Agriculture and and the College of Life Sci- 
ences at UMCP, and the agricultural programs at UMES Through these 
efforts, local people are assisted in finding solutions to their problems. 

The Cooperative Extension Service works in close harmony and associ- 
ation with many groups and organizations In addition to work on farms and 
with agri-businesses, extension programs are aimed at many small and 
part-time farmers, rural non-farm and urban family consumers as well as 
watermen and marine-related businessmen Both rural and urban families 
learn good food habits through the Expanded Food and Nutrition Educa- 
tion Program Thousands of boys and girls gam leadership knowledge and 
experience and are provided practical educational instruction in 4-H clubs 
and other youth groups 

To accomplish its mission, the Cooperative Extension Service works 
closely with teaching and research faculty of the University and with units 
of the University outside of agriculture, as well as State and Federal agen- 
cies and private groups Short courses, workshops, and conferences in 
various fields of interest are conducted at UMCP and other locations 
throughout the State A wide variety of publications and radio and televi- 
sion programs also are used to reach the people of Maryland,

lege, and transfer students with distinguished records from other institu- 
tions (especially if they come from other Honors Programs) are also

Pre-professlonal Programs 

The pre-professional programs are designed to provide the necessary 
academic foundation required for entrance into professional schools Some 
require two or three years of pre-professional study before admission to 
professional school Others, such as the programs for pre-dentistry. pre- 
law, and pre-medicine, normally require completion of a bachelor's degree. 
Five of these pre-professional programs may be declared as the official 



undergraduate academic major pre-dental hygiene, pre-medical technol- 
ogy, pre-nursing, pre pharmacy, and pre physical therapy 

In contrast, six of these pre-professional programs are advisory only. 
and cannot be declared as the official undergraduate academic major pre- 
dentistry, prelaw, pre-medicine, pre optometry, pre osteopathy, and pre- 
podiatry The students interested in one of these types of pre-professional 
preparation may choose from a wide variety of academic majors across 
campus The pre professional advisor will provide guidance concerning the 
choice of major 

Successful completion of a pre-professional program at the College 
Park Campus does not guarantee admission to any professional school 
Each professional school has its own admissions requirements and criteria, 
which may include grade point average in undergraduate courses, scores 
in aptitude tests (Medical College Admission Test, Law School Admission 
Test, Dental Aptitude Test, Allied Health Professions Admission Test, etc ). 
a personal interview, faculty recommendations, and an evaluation from the 
pre-professional advisor For admissions requirements, the student is 
urged to study the catalog of each professional school 

Although completion ofthe bachelor's degree is a normal prerequisite 
for admission for dental, law. and medical schools, three professional 
schools of The University of Maryland at Baltimore — Dentistry. Law. and 
Medicine — have arrangements whereby a student who meets certain strin- 
gent requirements may be acce
