GOALS 




An education at the University of 
Man'land at College Pari< strives 
to cultivate intellect b\' teaching 
students to extend pnnciples and 
ideas to new situations and to 
new groups of people. It aims to 
provide students with a sense of 
identity and purpose, a concern 
for others, a sense of responsibility 
for the qualit\' of life around them, 
a continuing eagerness for 
knowledge and understanding, 
and a foundation for a lifetime of 
personal enrichment. It enlivens 
students to enlarge the common 
understanding, to develop 
humane values, to celebrate 
tolerance and fairness, to con- 
tribute to the social conscierKe, to 
monitor and assess private and 
collective assumptions, and to 
recognize the glor\', tragedv, and 
humor of the human condition. 
Sf>ecifically, undergraduate educa- 
tion at College Park seeks to 
enable students to develop and ex- 
pand their use of basic academic 
and intellectual tools. Students are 
educated to be able to read with 
perception and pleasure, write and 
speak with claritv- and verve, han- 
dle numbers and computahon pro- 
ficiently, reason mathematically, 
generate clear questions and find 
probable arguments, reach 
substantiated conclusions, and ac- 
cept ambiguit)'. Students also 
study in depth and acquire a 
substanhal competence in a 
coherent academic discipline. A 
College Park education helps 
students to become aware of the 
varietv' of ways of knowing, the 
complexity- of being human, and 
to understand their place in 
historv' and in the contemporarv 
world. Students learn to analvze 
and appreaate artistK creations, to 
identify' and evaluate moral ques- 
tions, to svTtthesize and integrate 
knowledge, and to become in- 
tellectually flexible, inventive, and 
creative.

HISTORY 




In 1888, the campus 
consisted of an ad- 
ministration building, a 
dassroom buHding. and a 
laboratory. As the 
Maryland Agricultural 
College, it became one 
of the nation's first land- 
grant institutions in 
1865. 



Just after the Amencan Revolu- 
tion, the state of Mar)'land 
established its first two colleges at 
Qieslertown and Annapolis. By 
the 1850s, at least thirty bttle col- 
leges had sprung up over the 
state, many with state support, 
but many of them disappearing 
within a few years. Then, in 1859 
a different kind of institution ap- 
peared at College Park— the 
Maryland Agricultural College, the 
third such college in the world, 
created mainly for farmers' sons. 
The college was established by 
Charles Benedict Calvert, a 
wealthy planter from neartn- 
Riversdale— now Riverdale— and 
later a congressman. Calvert built 
a handsome Gothic dormitory- 
classroom structure located in a 
grove of trees near the present 
Morrill Hall, and he divided the 
land down to the Baltimore- 
Washington Turnpike into small 
plots where each of the 50-or-so 
students experimented with a dif- 
ferent agricultural crop. After the 
Civil War the institution becarr^e a 
land-grant college, with small ap- 
propriations from Washington. 
The little college began to grow 
about 1900 when agricultiiral ex- 
periments began to bring prosperi- 
ty to Mar\iand, and when the col- 
lege expanded its offerings into 
engineering, business, and the 





liberil arts. In 1912 the old Gothic 
building burned, and the state 
paivided mixiem structures. 
Women were adniitted to the 
campus, and graduate work 
began. In 1920 the college combin- 
ed \snth the long-established pro- 
fessional schools of Baltimore and 
changed its name to the Universi- 
ty of Maryland. Growth ac- 
celerated after 1935 when the 
politically astute football coach, 
H.C. 'Curley' BvTd became presi- 
dent, added scores of new pro- 
grams, and won national football 
championships. In the 1950s and 
1960s, President Wilson H. Elkms 
maintained the rapid growth, and 
College Park became one of the 
largest campuses in the nation. 
President Elkins, a Rhodes 
Scholar, transformed the institu- 
tion's public image from that of a 
part)' school to one of academic 
integrit)'. In the 1970s and 1980s, 
the university's graduate and 
research programs have especially 
flourished. In 1988, the General 
Assembly of Maryland combined 
six state colleges with the five 
campuses of the Universit}' of 
Marviand, and specifically charged 
College Park with the role of 
leadership. The University' of 
Maryland at College Park recog- 
nizes its special responsibility' as 
the flagship and the largest of the 
eleven institutions within the 
statewide university system to lead 
the University of Maryland's quest 




for excellence. To this end, College 
Park offers broad coverage in the 
traditional arts and sciences as 
well as in a wide range of profes- 
sional and pre-professional pro- 
grams. The institution is organized 
into fourteen colleges and schools 
encompassing over 100 depart- 
ments and campus-\\ide programs 
of study. A growing number of 
these departments and programs 
rank among the best in the nation. 
Toda\' the University of Mar\'land 
at College Park stands, by any 
measure, as one of the leading in- 
stitutions of higher education in 
the world.

The university's close 
links to Baltimore, An- 
napolis, and Washington, 
D.C. provide exciting op- 
portunities for intern- 
ships, research, cultural 
activities, and recreation. 




RESEARCH 




Opportunities for conducting 
research abound at the University 
of Maryland College Park and in 
the sunx)unding area, both for 
faculty to advance their own ex- 
pertise and bring their insights 
back into the classroom, and for 
students to begin the exploration 
of their speasi interests with 
hands-on experience. On campus, 
spedai facilities and a number of 
organized research bureaus, 
centers, and institutes promote the 
acquisition and analysis of new- 
knowledge in the arts, sciences, 
and applied fields. A sampling of 
such facilities includes a computer 
vision laborator\', a full-scale low- 
velodt)' wind tunnel, computer- 
assisted cartographic laboratories, a 
psycholinguistics laborator\', a 
SuperconductJ\ity Research 
Center, the Laboratory for Plasma 
and Fusion Studies, the Dev'elop- 
mental Ps>'cholog\' Laboratory, the 
Center on Aging, the Systems 
Research Center, the Engineering 
Research Center, the Center for 
Renaissance and Baroque Studies, 
and the Agriculharal Experiment 
Station. Off campus. University' of 
iMar\land at College Parit scientists 
placed a Low Energ\' Charged 
Particle experiment on board 
Voyager 2, which passed Nepturw 
in August, 1989; others are involv- 
ed in the development of the 
world's largest array of radio 
telescopes housed at the Hat 
Creek Obser\-atorT.- of the Unh-ersi- 
t\' of California at Berkele)'. [JMCP

of the Qiesapeake Bay. The 
university's unique location— just 
10 miles from dowTitowTi 
Washington, D.C., and approx- 
imately 30 miles from both An- 
napolis and Baltimore— enhances 
the research of its faculty and 
students because of its access to 
some of the finest libraries and 
research centers in the country. 
These include the National In- 
stitutes of Health, the Smithsonian 
Institution, the USDA Beltsxille 
National Agricultiiral Research 
Center and National Agricultural 
Library, the Library of Congress, 
the National Archives, the Folger 
Shakespeare Library, and many 
other academic and special 
libraries. In the Baltimore area, in 
addition to the universit\''s owti 
libraries at Baltimore County and 
on the professional campus in 
Baltimore Gty, are the Enoch Pratt 
Free Library and the Maryland 
Historical Association Library. The 
state capital at Annapolis is the 
site of the Maryland Hall of 
Records.

ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS AND 
APPLICATION PROCEDURES 



FRESHMAN ADMISSION CRITERIA 

The University of Maryland is a publicly-supported, land grant institution 
dedicated primarily to the educational needs of Maryland residents. Within 
its responsibilities as a state institution, the university attracts a cosmo- 
politan student body and each year offers admission to a number of 
promising students from other states and jurisdictions. Currently, fifty 
stales, the District of Columbia, two territories, and 100 foreign countries 
are represented in the undergraduate population. Admission policies for 
the upcoming semesters are determined by the Board of Regents. 

The University of Maryland at College Park maintains a competitive 
admission policy, with priority given to those students with the most 
outstanding academic credentials, and seeks to enroll students who 
demonstrate the potential for academic success. 

That potential is typically assessed by examination of high school course 
work and Scholastic Aptitude Test (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 science, both of which will 
involve laboratory work; and three years of mathematics courses equiva- 
lent at least to Algebra I, Algebra II, and Plane Geometry: and beginning 
In fall 1 991 , one year of a foreign language, with two years of a foreign 
language required in fall 1992. In addition, students are strongly encour- 
aged to take a fourth year of mathematics. 

High School Transcripts 

In general, the University of Maryland at College Park requires freshman 
applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to their first registration at 
tfie university. Applicants should make sure that final high school tran- 
scripts are sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to 
enrolling. All offers of admission are contingent upon satisfactory comple- 
tion of current work. 

Use of Mid-Year Grades 

The university will reserve a decision on the applications of Maryland 
residents who do not meet the criteria outlined above until mid-year 
grades are available for the senior year in high school. The University of 
Maryland at College Park is unable to utilize the final high school marks 
in rendering decisions tor applicants who are applying for admission 
directly from high school. 

If mid-year grades for the senior year in high school are available when an 
application is initially considered by the University of Maryland at College 
Park admissions staff, they will be used in determining eligibility for 
admission. 

Subjects Used for Computation of the High School 
Academic Grade-Point Average 

Because of variations in course titles in the secondary school systems, 
this listing is not inclusive. It does, however, provide examples of the types 
of courses the University of Maryland at College Park includes when 
computing the high school academic grade-point average (GPA).

submitted directly to the University of Maryland at College ParM. by the 
Educational Testing Service. The applicant is strongly urged to include 
his/her social security number when registenng for the SAT The social 
security number will expedite processing of the application for admission 
by this campus. The reporting code for the University of Maryland at 
College Park is 5814 The university strongly recommends that the SAT 
be taken as early as possible The January test is generally the latest 
acceptable examination for fall applicants. Further information on the SAT 
may be obtained from high school guidance offices or directly from the

admissions process, they are not the sole factors in determining a 
candidate's admissibility. The Admissions Committee may review a 
student in light of his or her unique talents and abilities. Students with 
accomplishments in other realms, such as fine arts, leadership, and 
athletics, should make this information available to the Admissions Office

that follows. Students should arrange to have their scores sent directly to

Sen/ice; the code is 5814. Students should also inform their advisors at 
Orientation that they anticipate receiving AP credit, because this informa- 
tion may affect their placement in subject-matter courses.

will be reevaluated. The score received must be equivalent to the 
minimum score the University of Maryland at College Park accepted at the

Certain departments, particularly Math and Physics, have separate crite- 
ria for placement In courses and the assignment of credit. Students should 
check with those departments for additional information. All entering 
freshmen will be placed in math courses according to the University of 
Maryland at College Park math placement exam. 



Transfer Admission Criteria 

A student who has attended any regionally accredited institution of higher 
education following graduation from high school and attempted nine or 
more credits will be considered for admission as a transfer student. In 
calculating eligibility, the university will use the average stated on the 
transcript 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 transfer 
to the University of Maryland at College Park. 

Where the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number 
that can be accommodated on the campus, or in a particular professional 
or specialized program, admission will be based on overall grade-point 
average and the strength of the academic program the student has 
pursued. 

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 
completed at a regionally accredited college or university. The grade- 
point average requirement can vary, depending on the availability of 
space, but should not be lower than 3.0. All students with grade-point 
averages below 3.0 will be considered on a space available basis. In 
accordance with Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer poli- 
cies, applicants from Maryland community colleges are, in some in- 
stances, given special consideration, and, when qualified, can be admit- 
ted with a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or better. 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 tfie University 
System 

A student seeking to move from one institution of the university to another 
must have been a regular degree-seeking student eligible to return to his 
or her original campus. Students who were special or non-degree students 
must contact the admissions office of the receiving campus. Undergradu- 
ate students who are not eligible to return to their original campus must be 
reinstated there before being considered for admission to the University 
of Maryland at College Park. 

Students must comply with the normal deadlines and, where space is 
limited, admission to the new campus will be based on criteria designed 
to select the best qualified students. 

Transfer Students from Maryland Community Colleges 

Currently, Maryland residents who attend Maryland public community 
colleges may be admitted in accordance with the critena outlined in the 
general statement atwve. The university subscribes to the fwlicies set 
forth in the Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer policies. 
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 

Transfer of Credits 

In general, credit from academic courses taken at Institutions of higher 
education accredited by a regional accrediting association will transfer, 
provided that the appropriate academic officials at this campus consider 
such courses part of the student's curncular program and that the student 
earned at least grades of C in those courses An academic advisor will 
discuss this and other matters during the penod of registration. 

Maryland Public Colleges and Universities, Transfer of course work 
completed at Maryland public colleges and universities is covered by the 
Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer policies. 

Maryland Coinmunity College Articulated Programs. An articulated 
transfer program is a list of community college courses that best prepare 
the applicant for a particular course of study at the University of Maryland 
at College Park. If the applicant takes appropriate 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 programs after 
changing career objectives. The guides are available at the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Maryland at College Park 
and in the transfer advisor's office at each of the community colleges. 
Applicants can eliminate all doubt concerning transfer of courses by 
following programs outlined in the guide. 

University of Maryland System. Credits for undergraduate courses will 
transfer to the University of Maryland at College Park from other University 
of Maryland institutions. The applicability of these courses to the particular 
program chosen at the University of Maryland at College ParV will be 
determined by an academic advisor, evaluator in the office of the dean 
(see Orientation Programs, below). 

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

Foreign Language Credit. Transfer of foreign language credit is accept- 
able in meeting requirements. Prospective students shouW consult the 
appropriate sections of this catalog to determine the specific requirements 
of various colleges and curricula. 

Advanced Placement Credit. II 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 Students must have an official 
score report sent to the University of Maryland at College Park in order to 
be considered for AP credit 

Maryland Higher Education Commission Transfer 
Policies 

These policies are currently under review Students are advised to consult 
with the transfer coordinator or advisor. The University of Maryland fully 
subscribes to the Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer poli- 
cies. A complete text of the policy follows. 

These Student Transfer Policies, developed by a special task fofc* 
of the Segmental Advisory Committee, were adopted by the Mary- 
land State Board for Higher Education on November 1 . 1 979. 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 opera- 
tional, the new policies shall be effective and applicable to students 
enrolling In Maryland's public postsecondary education institutions 
In fall. 1980. and thereafter. At that time they will superse<le SBHE 
student transfer policies In effect since 1972. 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 17 



Preamble 

The major objective of these policies is to relate in operational ways the 
undergraduate programs ottered 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 
experienced by students transfernng 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 atiout 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 
academic 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 
governed 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 time 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 articulation 
without becoming production line enterprises. 

The dynamics of higher education preclude one-and-for-all time curricula 
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 system for appeals. 

Policies 

1 . Public four-year colleges and universities shall require attainment of 
an overall 2.0 average on a four-point scale by Maryland resident 
transfer students as one standard for admission. If the student has 
attended two or more institutions, the overall 2.0 will be computed on 
grades received in courses earned at all institutions attended unless 
the student presents an Associate in Arts degree. 

a) Each public institution of higher education shall designate a person 
responsible for coordinating transferability to assist in accomplish- 
ing the policies and procedures outlined in this plan. The State 
Board for Higher Education will support requests by a public 
institution of higher education to establish the position of transfer 
coordinator. 

b) Efforts shall be intensified among the sending institutions, based 
on shared information, to counsel students on the basis of their 
likelihood of success in vanous programs and at various institu- 
tions. (See par. 1 (c) and par. 9). 

c) Procedures for reporting the progress of students who transfer 
within the state shall be developed as one means of improving the 
counseling of prospective transfer students. 

2. Admission requirements and curriculum prerequisites shall be stated 
explicitly in institutional publications. Students who enroll at Maryland 
Community Colleges shall be encouraged to complete the Associate 
in Arts degree or to complete fifty-six hours in a planned sequence of 
courses that relate to general education and the selection of a major 
before transfer. Subsequent graduation from the receiving four-year 
institution is not assured within a two-year period of full-time study. 

a) Students from Maryland Community Colleges who were admis- 
sible to the four-year institution as high school seniors and who 
have attained an overall 2.0 average in college and university 
parallel courses shall be eligible for transfer at any time, regard- 
less of the number of credits. Those students who have been 
awarded the Associate in Arts degree or who have successfully 
completed fifty-six hours of credit with an overall 2.0 average in 
college and university 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 or specialized program or certain circum- 
stances exist that require a limitation being placed on the size of 
an upper division program or on the total enrollment, admission 
will be on critena developed and published by the receiving 
institution, which provides equal treatment for native and transfer 
students. 

b) Course semester hour requirements that students must meet to 
transfer with upper division standing shall be clearly stated by the 
receiving institution. 

c) The establishment of articulated programs is required in profes- 
sional and specialized curricula. 

3. Information about transfer students who are capable of honors work 
or independent study shall be transmitted to the receiving institution. 

4. Transfer students from newly established public colleges that are 
functioning with the approval of the State Board for Higher Education 
shall be admitted on the same basis as applicants from regionally 
accredited colleges. 

5. a) Credit earned at any other public institution in Maryland shall be 

transferable to any other public institution provided: 

1 . the credit is from a college or university parallel program; 

2. the grades in the block of courses transferred average 2.0 or 

higher; and 

3. the acceptance of the credit is consistent with the policies of the 

receiving institution governing students following the same 
program. 

b) Credit for the CLEP general examinations will be considered for 
transfer only for scores at the 50th percentile, and above, of the 
combined national men-women sophomore norms. The exact 
number of credits awarded, if any, in transfer will be determined by 
the same regulations that pertain to native students in the receiv- 
ing institution. The percentile needed to transfer credit for the 
CLEP subject examination will be determined by the receiving 
institution. Segmental/lnstitutional governing boards shall submit 
to the State Board for Higher Education by December 1 st of each 
year data collected from the institutions concerning the credit 
given, minimum scores and equivalent courses of the CLEP 
subject examinations. This data will be distributed annually by the 
State Board for Higher Education to transfer advisors at all 
institutions. To facilitate the transfer of Advanced Placement and 
CLEP credit, the achievement score for Advanced Placement and 
the scaled score, percentile rank, and the type of examinations 
(General or Subject) for the CLEP shall be reported on the 
transcript when credit is awarded. 

c) The Associate in Arts degree shall serve the equivalent of the 
lower division general education requirements at the receiving 
institution where the total number of credits required in the general 
education program in the sending institution is equal to or more 
than that required in the receiving institution and where the credits 
are distributed among the arts and sciences disciplines. 

d) The determination of the major program requirements for a bac- 
calaureate degree, including courses in the major taken in the 
lower division, shall be the responsibility of the institution awarding 
the degree. 

6. Transfer of credits from the following areas shall be consistent with 
the state minimum standards and shall be evaluated by the receiving 
institution on a course-by-course basis: 

a) Courses from technical and career programs. 

b) Orientation courses. 

c) Remedial courses. 

d) Courses credited by a university or college that has no direct 
academic and administrative control over the students or the 
faculty involved in the courses. 

e) Credit for work experiences. 

7. Credit earned in or transferred from a community college shall nor- 
mally be limited to approximately half the baccalaureate degree 
program requirement, but in no case more than 70 credits, and to the 
first two years of the undergraduate educational experience. 

8. Transfer students shall be given the option of satisfying graduation 
requirements that were in effect at the receiving institution at the time 
they enrolled as freshmen at the sending institution, subject to con- 
ditions or qualifications that apply to native students. 

9. Institutions shall notify each other as soon as possible of impending 
curricular changes that may affect transferring students. When a 
change made by one institution necessitates some type of change at 
another institution, sufficient lead time shall be provided to effect the 
change with minimum disruption. 

10. Community college students are encouraged to choose as early as 
possible the institution and program into which they expect to transfer. 

1 1 . The Segmental Advisory Committee shall continue to review articu- 
lation issues and shall recommend policy changes as needed to the 
State Board for Higher Education. 

12. In the event a transfer student believes he or she has not been 
accorded the consideration presented in this policy statement, the 



18 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



student shall have the opportunity to have the situation explained or 
reconciled. 

Initially, differences of interpretation regarding the award of transfer credit 
shall be resolved between the student and the institution to which he is 
transferring. II a difference remains unresolved, the student shall present 
his/her evaluation of the situation to the institution from which the student 
is transferring. Representatives from the two institutions shall then have 
the opportunity to resolve the differences 

The sending institution has the right to present an unresolved case to the 
Segmental Advisory Committee through a written appeal to the State 
Board for Higher Education. The SAC shall receive relevant 
documentation, opinions, and interpretations in written form from the 
sending and receiving institutions and from the student. The Segmental 
Advisory Committee will send the written documentation to a pre-estab- 
lished articulation committee which, after review, will submit its recom- 
mendations to the Segmental Advisory Committee. 

Copies of the recommendation shall be forwarded by the State Board for 
Higher Education to the segments for distribution to the appropriate 
institutions. 

A complaint on transfer status must be initiated by the student within one 
calendar year of his/her enrollment in the receiving institution.

Teacher Education 

Admission to teacher education majors is limited for twth freshmen and 
transfer applicants. A small number of academically talented freshmen 
who have a 3 or better academic grade-point average (GPA) and a total 
score of 1200 or more on the Scholastic Aptitude Test will be admitted 
directly. All transfer students, as well as students currently enrolled at 
UMCP. must 1) complete the six-credit USP Fundamental Studies re- 
quirements: 2) earn 45 semester hours at UI^CP or other institutions with 
an overall cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in all course work 
prior to enrollment in EDHD 300; and 3) have satisfactory scores on the

Individuals who do not initially meet the criteria for admission to teacher 
education will be given an additional semester in which to become eligible. 
During that semester the student will follow a plan for attaining eligibility 
developed by the student and the department advisor. New requirements 
for the elementary education teacher preparation programs have been 
adopted. For further information, please contact the College of Education. 



SPECIAL APPLICANTS

eration will be given to minority students who demonstrate the potential for 
academic success. Minority students are urged to contact both an

Returning Students and Veterans 

Maryland residents who have not attended school for more than five 
years, or who have had military experience, may find that the published 
standards for freshman and transfer admissions do not apply to their 
situation. To discuss educational plans, returning students and veterans 
should contact both an admissions counselor and the Returning Students 
Program, 454-2935. 

Students returning to the University of Maryland at College Park after a 
separation of five calendar years may petition their appropnate dean to 
have a number of grades and credits from courses previously taken at the 
University of Maryland at College Park removed from the calculation of 
their cumulative grade-point averages and from the credits applied toward 
graduation requirements. For more information, consult the section on 
Academic Regulations and Requirements. 

International Students 

The University of Maryland values the contribution international students 
make to the College Park campus. 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 challenges 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 international 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 demon- 
strate, 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 suggest applicants apply 
early. 

Those who will hold the following visa types. A, E, F, G, H, I, J, and L, will 
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 
U.S. secondary education (grades 9 through 1 2), will be evaluated on the 
same basis as U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents/Immigrants. 



International 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 

International students applying for admission to undergraduate programs 
at the University of Maryland at College Park must submit: 1 ) an applica- 
tion and fee for admission: 2) copies of official secondary school records, 
including any secondary external examinations, such as the G.C.E. 
"Ordinary" level examinations, or the Baccalaureate; 3) transcripts of any 
university level studies completed in the United States or elsewhere 
Original documents wntlen in a language other than English must be 
accompanied by certified English translations. 

International students who have completed grades 10, 11, and 12 in a 
United States high school must also take the Scholastic Aptitude Test 
(SAT) and submit the results. All freshman applicants to the College of 
Engineering, regardless of where they have studied, must present SAT 
scores. Admission to limited-enrollment majors (see "Admissions to 
Limited-Enrollment Majors" for identification of these majors) requires 
international students to have marks of no less than "excellent" in previous 
education. 

International students on F-1 Student visas accepted for admission to the 
university will receive the 1-20 form from the office of International 
Education Sen/ices (lES); this form is needed to secure, transfer, and 
extend the Student visa after applicants have certified their financial 
support and submitted evidence of satisfactory English proficiency to the 
lES office. 

International students accepted for admission will be expected to plan 
their arrival sufficiently in advance of the registration period to secure 
housing and attend the special orientation program for international 
students that is held the week prior to registration.

that no credit earned while enrolled as special students may be applied at 
a later date to a graduate program. These post-baccalaureate students 
may enroll in undergraduate courses for which they possess the neces- 
sary prerequisites, but may not enroll in courses restricted to graduate 
students only. Students who wish to take courses at the graduate level 
(600 and above) must contact the Graduate School for information 
concerning admission requirements for Advanced Special Student status.

FEES AND EXPENSES 

Student Accounts Office 

1 103 Lee Building, 454-4832 

Tuition and fees for the University of Maryland at College Park are listed 
below. The university requires that all deposits and fees be paid by stated 
deadlines, or penalties must be imposed. Many potential administrative 
difficulties can be avoided if students carefully follow published proce- 
dures and notify the appropriate office(s) of any changes that might affect 
their financial obligation to the university. This includes notifying the 
university of changes of address, so that mail affecting the student's 
financial relationship with the university will not be delayed or returned. 

The University of Maryland does not have a deferred payment plan. 
Charges incurred during a semester are payable immediately. Returning 
students will not be permitted to complete registration until all financial 
obligations to the university including library fines, parking violations, and 
other penalty fees and service charges are paid in full. 

Payment for past due balances and current semester fees are due on or 
before the first day of classes. Students who register in advance must pay 
their bills in full prior to the general registration period. Students who 
register after the initial registration period are required to make full 
payment by the close of business the following working day to avoid 
cancellation of their enrollment and loss of their classroom seats to other 
students. 

It is the policy of the university not to defer payment on the basis of a 
pending application for financial assistance to an outside agency, includ- 
ing Veterans Administration benefits, bank loans, Stafford student loan 
programs, etc. 

Although the university regularly mails bills to students, it cannot assume 
responsibility for their receipt. Students are reminded that it is their 
responsibility to notify the university of any change in address, or to correct 
an address. If a student bill Is not received on or before the beginning of 
each semester, it is the student's responsibility to obtain a copy of the bill, 
1103 Lee Building, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. 

All checks or money orders should be made payable to the University of 
Maryland for the exact amount due. Student name and student social 
Mcurlty number should be written on the front side of the check. 

University grants, scholarships, or workship awards will be deducted on 
the t)ill, which is mailed approximately one month after the start of the 
semester. However, the first bill mailed prior to the beginning of each 
semester may not include these deductions. 

Students are urged to check their residence hall and dining service 
agreements for procedures for cancellation of reservations, and for 
deadlines for receiving refunds of deposits. Refunds cannot be made after 
these deadlines, even if the student decides not to attend the University 
of Maryland at College Park. 

Students will be severed from university services and incur a late payment 
fee in the event of failure to pay a balance on their student account by its 
due date. In the event that severance occurs, the individual may make 
payment during the semester in which services were severed and 
services will be restored. A $25.00 severance fee and a late payment fee 
of $5.00 or 5%, whichever Is higher, will be assessed In addition to 
payment for the total past due amount. 



Students removed from housing because of delinquent indebtedness will 
be required to reapply for housing after they have satisfied their financial 
obligation . Students who are severed from university services and who fail 
to pay the indebtedness during the semester in which severance occurs 
will be ineligible to preregister for subsequent semesters until the debt and 
the penalty fees are cleared. 

In the event of actual registration for a subsequent semester by a severed 
student who has not settled his or her student account pnor to that 
semester, such registration will be cancelled and no credit will be earned 
for the semester. 

The state has established, under legislative mandate, a Central Collec- 
tions Unit (CCU) within the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning. 
The university is required by state law to refer all delinquent accounts to 
the State Collections Unit. Please note that Maryland law allows the 
Central Collections Unit to intercept state income tax refunds for individu- 
als with delinquent accounts, and that failure to make timely payment in 
response to CCU collection efforts may impair a credit rating. 

All Accounts Due from Students, Faculty, Staff, Non-Students, etc., 
are included within these guidelines. 

Collection costs incurred in collecting delinquent accounts will be charged 
to the student. The minimum collection fee is 15% plus attorney and/or 
court costs. 

No degrees, grades, diplomas, certificates, or transcripts of records will be 
issued to students who have not made satisfactory settlement of their 
accounts. 

An Important Fee Notice: Although changes in fees and charges 
ordinarily will be announced in advance, the university reserves the right 
to make such changes without prior announcement.

of Information, Delinquent Accounts, and Special Fees, can be found on

at any time during the academic year should secure a form for withdrawal 
from the Records and Registrations Office. The completed form and the 
semester Identification.Registration Card are to be submitted to the 
Records and Registrations Office. Students will forfeit their right to refund 
if the withdrawal action descnbed above is not adhered to. The effective 
date used in computing refunds is the date the withdrawal form is filed in 
the Records and Registrations Office. Stop Payment on a check, failure 
to pay the semester bill, failure to attend classes, does not constitute 
withdrawal. A request for a refund must be processed by students with the 
Office of the Bursar; otherwise any credit on student accounts will 
automatically be carried over to the next semester. Cancellation of 
Registration — Submitted to the Withdrawai/Reenrollment Office 
before the official first day of classes entitles students to full credit 
of semester tuition. 

Undergraduate students withdrawing from the university will be credited 
for tuition and fees (except the registration fee) in accordance with the 
following schedule: 



Prior to 1st day of classes 
1 St 5 days of classes 
2nd and 3rd weeks 
4th week 
5th week 
After 5th week 



100% 
80% 
60% 
40% 
20% 
No Refund 



Prior to the first day of classes, if full-time undergraduate students drop 
a course or courses, thereby changing the total number of credits for which 
they are preregistered to eight or less, charges for the semester will be 
assessed on the basis of the per credit hour fee for part-time students. 
However, if students later add a course or courses thereby changing the 
total number of credits for which they are registered to nine or more, they 
will be billed for the difference between per credit hour fees paid and the 
general fees for full-time undergraduates. 

If during the first five days of classes full-time undergraduates drops a 
course or courses thereby changing the total number of credits for which 
they are registered to eight or less, charges for the semester will be 
assessed on the basis of part-time charges plus 20% of the difference 
between the full-time fees and appropriate part-time charges. After the 
first five days of classes, there is no refund for changing from full-time to 
part-time status. 

Students who register as part-time undergraduate students and apply for 
a refund for courses dropped during the first week of classes will be given 
a refund. No refund will be made for courses dropped thereafter. 



No part of the charges for room and board is refund, il;i'; o-li pi when 
students officially withdraw from the university or when they are given 
permission by the appropriate officials of the university to move from the 
residence halls and/or to discontinue dining hall privileges. In these cases, 
the room refund will be computed by multiplying the number of periods 
remaining by the pro rata weekly rate after adjusting for a service charge. 
Refunds to students having full board contracts will be calculated in a 
similar manner. No room and;or board refunds will be made after the 
fourteenth week of the semester Students are reminded that reservations 
for room and board must be cancelled by the date published in the 
residence hall and dining services agreement(s). 

In computing refunds to students who have received the benefit of 
scholarships and loans from university funds, the computation will be 
made to return the maximum amount to the scholarship and loan accounts 
without loss to the university. 



FINANCIAL AID 

Office of Student Financial Aid 
2130 Mitchell Building, 454-3046 

Applying for financial aid, receiving financial aid, and keeping financial aid 
do not happen automatically. Students have to make it happen! 

The Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) provides advice and assis- 
tance in the formulation of student financial plans and, in cooperation with 
other university offices, participates in the awarding of scholarships and 
grants to deserving students. The primary responsibility of financing 
attendance at the University of tVIaryland at College Park lies with students 
and families. 

Scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study positions are awarded on the 
basis of academic ability and financial need determined by a federal needs 
analysis system. It is the intent of the committee on Financial Aid to provide 
awards to those qualified students who might not othenArise be able to 
pursue college studies. 

Financial aid funds are limited; therefore, all new, readmitted, and return- 
ing students must follow these steps to receive priority consideration for 
financial aid; 

1 . Submit admissions applications and all necessary supporting docu- 
ments to the Office of Admission by the appropriate deadlines. 

2. Complete a Financial Aid Form (FAF) after January 1 . FAF forms are 
available from OSFA. A new FAF is required for each academic 
year of the student's enrollment. 

New students should not wait to be admitted before filing the FAF. 

A financial aid application has no bearing on a student s admission ap- 
plication. However, students will not receive final consideration for aid 
until they are admitted to a degree program. 

3. I^ail the form to the College Scholarship Service no later than January 
15, so that the services analysis of the FAF is received in the Office 
of Student Financial Aid by February 15. Income for the previous 
year may be estimated initially, and corrected later on the Student 
Aid Report. 

Applications received after February 15, 1989 will be reviewed after on- 
time applications in order of receipt as long as funds are available. All 
transfer students and new graduate students must provide a financial aid 
transcript from all post-secondary schools attended, whether aid was 
received or not. 

General Regulations Applicable to All Forms of Aid Full-time 
Status 

Full-time Status. For most types of aid. students must register for and 
maintain at least 1 2 credit hours each semester in order to receive the full 
financial aid award and maintain that award. 

Citizenship Status.Students must be United States citizens or eligible 
non-citizens in order to be eligible for federal, state, or university financial 
assistance. 



26 Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 



Default/Owe Refund. To receive federal financial aid, you cannot be in 
default on an educational loan, nor can you owe any refund on a Pell Grant 
or Supplemental Educational Opporlunity Grant (SEOG) previously 
awarded at any post secondary institution 

Degree Seeking. To receive federal financial aid, students must be 
working toward a degree or certificate. Students must be admitted to the 
university as 'degree-seeking." 

Satisfactory Progress. To receive federal financial aid, students must be 
making satisfactory progress toward a degree or certificate according to 
the Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress printed at the end of 
this chapter. 

Selective Service. To receive federal financial aid, students must be 
registered with Selective Service if they are male, at least 1 8 years old and 
born after December 31, 1959, unless they are not required to be 
registered. Compliance with the registration requirement will be verified by 
the federal government. The names of those students whose status 
cannot be verified will be referred to the U.S. Department of Justice for 
possible prosecution. 

Anti-Drug Abuse Act. All Pell Grant recipients must sign an AntiDrug 
Abuse Act certification form stating that they will not engage in the unlawful 
manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of a controlled 
substance during the period covered by the Pell Grant. 

Receiving a Non-Unlverslty Award. If students receive assistance 
(scholarship or loan) from a non-university source, the university will 
normally reduce the financial aid awarded by the university. It is the 
student's responsibility to notify the Director of Financial Aid of all outside 
awards. Unless otherwise directed by the donor, outside non-university 
awards will be credited to students' accounts, one half each semester of 
the academic year. 

Change In Financial Situation. It is students responsibility to notify the 
Office of Student Financial Aid of any changes in their financial situation 
during the year. 

Reapplication Requirement. No form of assistance is automatically re- 
newed from year to year. All students requesting aid must reapply by 
submitting a new FAF annually. Such reapplication must indicate contin- 
ued financial need as well as Satisfactory Academic Progress. 

Award Policy. Financial aid is normally a combination of grant funds, loan 
funds, and employment. The financial aid "package" is determined by the 
availability of the various types of financial aid and the individual circum- 
stances of the students. It is not necessary to make any special application 
for university grants. The Office of Student Financial Aid will determine 
awards which best fit the needs and qualifications of the candidates. 



Estimating Educational Cost 

A budget of average educational costs is used in determining how much 
aid a student is awarded during the academic year. The typical budget for 
an in-state undergraduate at the University of f^aryland for the 1989- 90 
academic year was as follows: 

Dependent Student Living on Campus 

Tuition (in-state) $2097.00 out-of-state; $5754.00 

Room 2390.00 

Board 1939.00 

Incidentals 1500.00 

Books 395.00 



$8321.00 



$11,978.00 



Notes: 1. The above budget is subject to change for the 1990-91 aca- 
demic year. 
2. To determine 1990-91 budget, add approximately 4%-5% to 
costs

Need-Based Financial Assistance 
Grants 

Students at the University of Maryland at College Park will be considered 
for grant funds when they complete the Financial Aid Form by our priority 
deadline. Grant awards are made to undergraduate students from the 
federal Pell and SEOG programs and from limited university funds. These 
awards are generally based on financial need and vary in value. 

Peli Grant. The federal government provides grant assistance to eligible 
students who need it to attend post-secondary institutions. Each applicant 
receives a Student Aid Report (SAP) from the federal Pell Grant proces- 
sor. Students must submit the SAR to the institution in which they plan to 
enroll. Eligible students may receive a Pell Grant for each year of 
undergraduate study to a maximum of 5 years full-time. Eligibility for the 
program ends once the first undergraduate degree is received. 

Suppiementai Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), The federal 
SEOG program is administered by the university and provides grants to 
students who have exceptional financial need. Eligible students must 
enroll in twelve ( 1 2) credit hours per semester. Eligibility for this program 
ends once the first undergraduate degree is completed. 

University Grant. The university administers this need-based program to 
students. Applicants who have at least a 3.0 GPA and whose FAF is 
processed by February 1 5th are considered for this grant. 

UMCP Grant, This need-based grant is administered by the university. To 
be considered, students must have their FAF processed by February 1 5, 
the priority deadline for OFSA. 

Self-Help 

The university administers a number of student loan programs which 
provide low-interest, long-term loans to undergraduate students with 
financial need. Only students who complete a FAF are considered for 
these programs. Loans are becoming a very important part of the financial 
aid package. It is imperative to plan carefully for a college education, so 
that the amount of indebtedness upon leaving school does not exceed 
ability to repay the loans. 

Perkins Loans. The Perkins program was designed to make low-interest 
loans to students with demonstrated financial need. The borrower must 
sign a promissory note. Repayment, at an interest rate of 5 per cent, 
begins six or nine months after a student graduates, withdraws, or drops 
below half-time status. 

Stafford Loans, The federal Stafford Loan program allows students to 
borrow funds directly from banks, credit unions, savings and loans, or 
other participating lenders. The commercial lending institution, not the 
university, makes the loan to the student. Undergraduates may borrow up 
to $2,625 per year for their first two years of study, or $4,000 per year after 
completing two years of study, depending on their need and lender 
policies. Need is determined by completion of an FAF. The interest rate 



is 8% during the first (our years of repayment, and increases to 10% 
beginning with the fifth year of repayment. 

Applications tor Maryland lenders are sent with OSFA award letters. The 
FAF is required. Loans will not be processed until a processed FAF has 
been received from CSS and all Financial Aid transcripts from previous 
institutions have been received Forms should be completed at least three 
months before the funds are required 

Parent Loans (PLUS) or Supplemental Loans (or Students (SLS). 

Some banks or lending institutions currently participate in the Parent Loan 
(PLUS) or Supplemental Loan (SLS) programs These loans are available 
to parents or dependent students and to independent students. Ttie 
maximum that parents and independent students may borrow in a year is 
$4,000. The interest rate is variable, but will not exceed 1 2%. Repayment 
begins 60 days after disbursement of the loan. In all cases, the key to 
obtaining one of these loans is finding a bank or lender willing to make the 
loan. The recommended application filing deadline is July 31st. NOTE: 
Effective August 17, 1988, students must complete an FAF before a 
Supplemental Loan can be processed. 

Part-time Employment 

Working during college years may offer advantages in addition to the 
obvious one of financing a college education. A job can provide valuable 
work experience and enhance skills that will contribute to a student's 
educational and personal development. 

College Work-Study Program 

Under provisions ol the Educational Amendments of 1976, employment 
may be awarded as a means of financial aid to students who ( 1 ) are in need 
of earnings from such employment to pursue a course of study at a college 
or university, and (2) are capable of maintaining good standing in the 
course of study while employed. Under the Work-Study Program, stu- 
dents may work up to twenty hours per week during the school year and 
a maximum of forty hours per week dunng the summer. The amount of 
money that may be earned is determined by the student's demonstrated 
need. 

Dining Hall Workship Program 

Under the Dining Hall Workship Program, students may earn their board 
by working approximately twelve hours per week. After a successful 
semester, the workload may be increased at the student's request. 
Students normally cannot make arrangement for employment until they 
are on campus at the beginning of the semester. Application must be 
made in person and the applicants should have a schedule of classes and 
study hours so that they can seek employment best suited to their free 
time. Contact Dining Services, 454-2904. 

Library Workship Program 

Students may be awarded jobs under the Library Workship program 
through the Office of Student Financial Aid. Students must follow the usual 
financial aid application procedures and show financial need. The amount 
of the award (generally about $1 ,200 per year) is credited to the student's 
account. Application must be made in person, and applicants should have 
a schedule of classes and study hours so that they can seek employment 
best suited to their free time. Contact McKeldin Library Personnel Office, 
454-4097.

Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), the College Work-Study (CWS), 
the Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL), and the PLUS/Supplemental Loan 



requires that colleges and universities define and enforce standards of 
progress for students receiving or applying for federal financial aid. To 
comply with that legislation, the following Standards of Satisfactory 
Academic Progress have been established, and all recipients of the 
above-mentioned forms of financial aid are sub|ect to these standards for 
renewal or receipt of their federal financial aid 

A review of the student's compliance with the Standards of Satisfactory 
Academic Progress will normally occur at the end of the Spring semester. 
Students who have not met the minimum credit hour requirement and/or 
minimum grade point average requirement will be informed in writing prior 
to the Fall semester.

the appeal is denied, the student must complete the needed hours or 
grades before he or she will become eligible for federal financial assis- 
tance.

Administrative Dean for Summer Programs 

2103 Reckord Armory, 454-3347 

The University of Maryland at College Parl< offers two six-week summer 
sessions each year in addition to regular fall and spring semesters. See 
the Academic Calendar in the front matter of this catalog or the Schedule 
of Classes for exact dates New freshman applicants who have met the 
regular university admission requirements for fall enrollment may begin 
their studies dunng the summer rather than waiting for the next fall term. 
By taking advantage of this opportunity and continuing to attend summer 
sessions, the time required for completion of a baccalaureate 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 high school to college. Courses offered 
during the summer are the same in content and instruction as those 
offered dunng the fall and spring semesters.

CAMPUS RESOURCES AND SERVICES 
Academic Advising 

Undergraduate Advising Center: 1117 Hornbake Library, 454-2733 
Health Professions Advising: 454-2540 
Credit-By-Exam/Advanced Placement/CLEP: 454-2733 

Academic advising is available to all students at the University of Maryland 
at College Park. Advising is an essential part of an undergraduates 
educational expenences. From orientation to graduation, advising can 
provide students with the assistance they need to plan their programs 
constructively. Effective academic advising functions like the hub of a 
wheel, providing connections between coursework and career, between 
learning and doing, between seeking advice and accepting responsibility. 

Advantages for Students: As active and regular participants in existing 
advising programs, students can reasonably expect to 

(1 ) better understand their purposes for attending the university; 

(2) develop insights about personal behaviors that promote improved 
adjustment to the campus setting: 

(3) increase their awareness of academic programs and course offer- 
ings at the University of Maryland at College Park; 

(4) more frequently explore opportunities both inside and outside the 
classroom for intellectual and cultural development; 



(5) acquire decision making skills that can accelerate academic and 
career planning, 

(6) more realistically evaluate their academic progress and its rela- 
tionships to successful planning; and 

(7) understand the relationship between academic success and plan- 
ning skills. 

Required Advising 

Students enrolled in certain majors are required to see advisors before 
each registration For most students, routine advising is not mandatory. 
However, the university does require all students to see an advisor under 
certain circumstances: 

Students In Their First Semester of Registration at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland at College Park. Students who are in their first 
semester of registration at College Park are urged to meet with an 
advisor prior to scheduling their classes 

Students Receiving an Academic Warning. Students who re- 
ceive an "Academic Warning " at the end of any semester will be 
urged in writing to meet with an advisor prior to the beginning of the 
next semester. Students who do not meet with an advisor will not 
be allowed to drop or add courses or to register for the following 
semester. 

Students Dismissed From the University. Each student dis- 
missed from the university for academic reasons must, as a 
condition of reinstatement, meet with an academic advisor. Ac- 
cording to the student's individual needs, this meeting may occur 
before or after reinstatement is granted; in no case, however, may 
a reinstated student complete registration until the fact of this 
meeting has been acknowledged/recorded by the advisor. 

Students Who Withdraw. Given circumstances deemed appro- 
priate by the Office of Reenrollment, certain students applying for 
reinstatement following withdrawal may be required to meet with 
an advisor as a condition of their reinstatement. When this occurs, 
the fact of the meeting must be acknowledged/recorded by an 
advisor before registration can be completed. The intent is to 
require advising of those students who have a record of consecu- 
tive withdrawals, withdrawal during a semester following proba- 
tion, and various other reasons for similar concern. 

Senior Audit. After a student has earned between 70 and 80 
credits toward a baccalaureate degree, that student shall be urged 
in writing to meet with an advisor. This meeting is for the express 
purpose of reviewing the student's progress toward the degree 
and, at a minimum, requires the advisor to detail, in writing, all 
coursework yet to be completed in fulfillment of the degree require- 
ments. Each college and department will have available one or 
more advisors to meet with these students at appropriate times. 

Finding An Advisor 

Undergraduate students are encouraged to use the many advisement 
opportunities available to them. At both academic levels — college and 
department — at least one person has been designated to coordinate ad- 
vising. A list of these persons, providing name, room number, and 
telephone extension is published each semester in the Schedule of 
Classes. Students who are unable to locate an advisor or who have 
questions about campus advising programs should visit or call the 
ijndergraduate Advising Center, 1117 Hornbake Library, 454-2733, 

Undergraduate Advising Center 

Many university students have decided to be "undecided" about their 
majors and want help in defining their goals. Other students, such as pre- 
business students, have plans to enter a particular program but are not 
certain they will meet the requirements. Still other students discover they 
have chosen the wrong majors and need help redefining their goals. 

Whatever their reasons for being "undecided," these students have a 
temporary advising home in the Undergraduate Advising Center. Working 
with the centers staff of trained academic advisors, they are able to 
explore majors, choose and schedule courses, plan their academic 
program, and learn about campus-wide resources available tor solving 
problems they encounter.

Development Center, the Counseling Center, various tutoring services, 
and advisors from academic departments and programs across campus

learning proposal to the Expenential Learning Program Office by 
the end of late registration for the semester of the internship. The 
maximum number of 386/387 credits applicable toward a bacca- 
laureate degree is 24. Many departments also offer their own

with internship options and the nearly 2,000 local placement sites. 
Students should plan ahead for their internship. 

Volunteer Service. The ELP Office maintains a listing of over 300 
agencies and organizations that have expressed an interest in 
having volunteers from the University of H/laryland at College Park. 
Volunteer service opportunities can range from research and 
advocacy to direct service to agencies and individuals. Students 
who wish to volunteer in a group setting may get involved with 
People Active in Community Effort (PACE), a student organization 
that provides valuable volunteer service/learning opportunities. 

Cooperative Education for Liberal Arts, Business, and the Sci- 
ences. Cooperative Education (Co-op) allows students to gain 
paid, professional-level work experience that is related to their 
major. Students learn more about their field of study and earn a 
competitive salary. While most opportunities are in computer 
science and business, there are some positions available for 
students in most majors. To be eligible, a student must have 
completed thirty-six semester hours, twelve of which must have 
been earned at the University of Maryland at College Park the 
semester before co-oping, and have a minimum 2.0 cumulative 
GPAinthe major, and each semester before co-oping. While most 
co-op students alternate semesters of on-campus study with 
semesters of full-time paid work, some choose a part-time co-op 
schedule. The minimum work commitment is the equivalent of six 
months of full-time work. 

Interested students must complete a co-op application and attend 
three required information and preparation sessions. Students 
interested in co-oping beginning with the spnng semester should 
apply in the fall. Those interested in co-oping beginning summer or 
fall should apply in the spring. See the College of Engineenng entry 
in Chapter 7 for details about the Engineering Co-op Program. 

National Student Exchange. National Student Exchange (NSE) 
provides students with the opportunity to experience educational 
travel, curricular development, cultural enrichment, and personal 
growth. Students may attend one of about 87 state-supported 
colleges and universities in the NSE consortium for a semester or 
academic year. The campuses vary and are located throughout the 
continental US and in Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Alaska, Guam, 
and Puerto Rico, Students often participate in NSE for a vanety of 
reasons, selecting schools that provide a particular academic 
focus, unique cultural environment, or different geographic loca- 
tion. NSE provides the opportunity for students to experience a 
new living and learning environment and assists with a simplified 
admissions process and assurance of transferability of credit. 
Exchanges should be completed prior to the student's final thirty 
hours of coursework at College Park. 

Maryland students pay tuition and mandatory fees to UMCP and 
room and board and miscellaneous lees to the host institution 
Exchanges for the next academic year are negotiated in March by 
the NSE coordinator Whenever possible, students are placed at 
the school of their first choice.

Resident Life 

3118 Mitchell Building. 454-2711 

The Department of Resident Life is responsible for management of the 
residence halls as well as for cultural, educational, recreational, and social 
programming activities in the resident halls. A staff of full-time, graduate 
and undergraduate employees helps to meet programming, physical 
environment, and administrative needs. The staff works with other cam- 
pus and state agencies to provide services and programs in accordance 
with university and state expectations. 

On-campus housing is available in 35 undergraduate resident halls near 
academic, cultural, social, and recreational resources of the campus. All- 
male, all-female, and coeducational living arrangements are available in 
the halls, which accommodate from 35 to 550 residents. Traditional 
residence halls, apartment suites for four to six students, and kitchenless 
suites for four to eight students are available. 

Students are encouraged to live on campus. Application for on-campus 
housing/dining services can be made on the undergraduate application 
for admission or in person. Once accommodated, a student may remain 
in residence halls throughout his or her undergraduate career. Preference 
is given to single, undergraduates, although graduate students may apply. 
Because about one-half of the 7.800 available spaces each year are 
reserved by returning upperclass students, the number of entehng stu- 
dents from whom applications are received each year are assigned to the 
approximately 4.000 spaces that remain. Soon after application is made 
for housing services, each eligible student is sent the official offer of on- 
campus housing/dining services for the academic year. On-campus 
housing/dining is for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters).

information, educational guidance counseling and support for low-income 
middle and high school graduates. The Talent Search Program reflects 
the concern that without early intervention, most disadvantaged students 
would be lost to postsecondary education because they wouki not be 
aware of their educational opportunities and because they would not 
select the appropriate high school courses. Thus, the objective of Talent 
Search is to identify, encourage, and help potentially able students as 
early as possible.

education program, provides information about college admissions re- 
quirements and the availability of scholarships and student financial aid 
programs. Students also get help in completing and submitting admission 
and financial aid applications.

CHAPTER 5 



REGISTRATION, ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS, 
AND REGULATIONS 



REGISTRATION 

First Floor Mitchell Building. 454-5559 

To attend classes at the University of Maryland at College Park it is 
necessary to process an official registration. Specific registration dates 
and instructions can be found in the current Schedule of Classes. The 
schedule is issued four times per year: prior to early registration for the fall 
and spring semesters, and again at the beginning of each semester. 

1 . Newly admitted students are invited and encouraged to attend an 
orientation session. Advising and course registration are part of 
the program. All newly admitted students must meet with an 
advisor prior to registration. 

2. All newly admitted freshman and transfer students are required to 
provide proof of immunization for measles, rubella, mumps, and 
tetanus/diphtheria. 

3. Currently enrolled students are invited to early registration. Reg- 
istration appointments for the fall semester begin in mid March; 
appointments for the spring semester begin in late October. 

4. Open registration follows Early Registration and continues up to 
the first day of classes. During this time students may make 
schedule adjustments or process an original registration. 

5. The schedule adjustment period is the first ten day of classes 
for the fall and spring semesters, and the first five days of classes 
for summer sessions. During this period, full-time undergraduates 
may drop or add courses, change sections, or change credit level 
with no charge Part-time undergraduates may also drop or add 
courses, change sections, or change credit level, but they should 
consult the deadline section in the Schedule of Classes to avoid 
incurring additional charges. The choice of grading method option 
(including the pass-fail option) may be changed only during the 
schedule adjustment period. Registration is final and official when 
all fees are paid. 

Departments may identify courses or sections of courses with the 
approval of the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, 
which after the first five days of the schedule adjustment period in 
spring and fall semesters, shall require faculty or departmental 
approval for students to add. 

Courses may be added, where space is available, during the 
schedule adjustment period and will appear on the student s per- 
manent record along with other courses previously listed. Courses 
dropped during this period will not appear on the student's 
permanent record. 

6. After the schedule adjustment period: 

a) Courses may not be added without special permission of the 
department and the dean of the academic unit in which the 
student is enrolled. 

b) All courses for which the student is enrolled shall remain as a 
part of the students permanent record. The student's status 
shall be considered as full-time for cerification purposes if the 
number of credit hours enrolled at this time is twelve or more. 
For billing purposes, a student is considered full-time if the 
number of credit hours enrolled is nine or more. 

c) A charge shall be made for each course dropped or added. 

d) An official class list for each course being offered is issued to 
the appropriate department by the Office of Records and Reg- 
istrations. Students are not permitted to attend a class if their 
names do not appear on the class list. Instructors must report 
discrepancies to the Office of Records and Registrations. 

7. The drop period for undergraduate students will tjegin at the 



close of the schedule adjustment period and terminate at the end 
of tenth week of classes during the fall and spring semesters and 
at a corresponding time for summer sessions. 

During the drop period a student 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 pos- 
sible) in the course. This mark shall not be used in any computa- 
tion of cumulative grade point average. 

8. At the end of the semester official grade lists are issued to each 
department Instructors mark the final grades on the grade lists, 
sign the lists and return them to Records and Registrations. 

9. Withdrawal from the University. Students wishing to withdraw 
from all courses must do so on or before the last day of classes. 
The policies governing withdrawals are as follows: 

a. Should a student desire or t>e compelled to withdraw from the 
university at any time, he or she must secure a form for 
withdrawal from the Records Office, and submit the form along 
with the semester identification and registration cards. 

b. The effective date of withdrawal as far as refunds are con- 
cerned is the date that the withdrawal form is received by the 
Records Office. Notation of Withdrawn, and the effective date 
of the withdrawal, will be posted to the permanent record. The 
instructors and the college offices will be notified of all with- 
drawn students. The deadline date for submitting the with- 
drawal form for each semester is the last day of classes. 
Contact Undergraduate Admissions for readmission informa- 
tion. 

10. When Deans approval is required the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally delegated to 
the dean in the case of non-college students. 

General Education Requirements 

In addition to completing a ma|or course of study, students are required 
to complete a set of general education requirements These requirements 
are intended to expose students to broad areas of historic and contempo- 
rary thought and experience. The Board of Regents and the University of 
Maryland at College Park Campus Senate have recently approved a new 
general education program This program. Core Literal Arts and Sciences 
Studies (CORE), must be completed by all students entering in May 1990 
and thereafter with eight (8) or fewer credits from this or any other higher 
education institution Students who enter and have completed nine (9) or 
more credits before May 1 990 from this or any other higher education 
institution will complete their general education requirements under the 
University Studies Program (USP) They may, however, choose the new 
CORE program if they so desire. Students who entered the University of 
Maryland at College Park pnor to May 1 980 are referred to Chapter 6. 
"Statue of Limitations," for additional information. 

For a detailed outline of the program requirements for both the CORE and 
the USP programs, students should refer to Chapter 6. Also included in 
this chapter are lists of approved courses which may t>e selected to meet 
program requirements 

Enrollment in Majors 

A student who is eligible to remain at the University of Maryland at College 
Par1< may transfer among cumcula colleges, or other academic units 



Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 41 



except where limitations on enrollments have been approved. Students 
must be enrolled in the major program from which they plan to graduate, 
when registering (or the final titteen hours ot the baccalaureate program. 
This requirement also applies to the third year of the combined, preprofes- 
sional degree programs. 

Students who wish to complete a second major in addition to their primary 
major ot record must obtain written permission in advance trom the 
appropriate deans. As early as possible, but in no case later than the 
beginning ot the second semester before the expected date of graduation, 
students must file with the departments or programs involved and with the 
appropriate deans, formal programs showing the courses to be ottered to 
meet requirements in each of the majors and supporting areas as well as 
the college and general education requirements. Approval will not be 
granted if there Is extensive overlap between the two programs. Students 
enrolled in two majors simultaneously must satisfactorily complete the 
regularly prescribed 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. If two colleges are Involved in the double major program, the 
student must designate which college is responsible for the maintenance 
of records. 

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate Registration 

A senior at the University of Maryland whose GPA Is at least 3.0 and who 
is within seven hours of completing the requirements for the undergradu- 
ate 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 
graduate credits in the senior year cannot be used for graduate credit 
unless proper pre-arrangement is made. Seniors who wish to take 
advantage of this opportunity must formally apply for admission to the 
graduate school. 

Credit Unit and Load Eacti 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 form 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 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: 
sophomore. 28-55: junior. 56-85: and senior, 86 to at least 120. 

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 eamed 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 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 in any way imply subse- 
quent departmental or graduate school approval for admission into 
graduate program, nor may the course be used as credit a for graduate 
degree at the University of tvlaryland. 

Courses Taken at Other Institutions 

Courses taken at another institution may not be credited toward a degree 
without approval In advance by the dean of the college from which the 
student expects a degree. The same rule applies to off campus registra- 
tion in the summer program of another Institution. However, courses taken 
through The Consortium of Universities of the Washington l^etropolitan 



Area jre treated as resident credit. (See section on the Consortium, 
below ) Permission to enroll In off -campus courses must be requested for 
any course which will eventually t>e added to the the University of 
Maryland at College Park transcnpt. 

The Consortium of Universities of the Washington 
Metropolitan Area 

The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area 
consists of American University, The Catholic University of America, 
Gallaudet College, Georgetown University, George Washington Univer- 
sity, Howard University. Marymounl University, Mt. Vernon College, 
Trinity College, University ot the District of Columbia, and the University 
of Maryland at College Park Students enrolled in these institutions are 
able to attend certain classes at the other campuses and have the credit 
considered as "residence" credit at their own Institutions. The intention is 
to allow students to take an occasional course to augment a program 
rather than to develop an individual program. Payment of tuition for 
courses will be made at the student's home campus. 

Currently registered, degree-seeking University of Maryland at College 
Park undergraduates may participate in the consortium program accord- 
ing to the stipulations listed In the current edition of the Schedule of 
Classes. Golden ID students are not eligible to enroll in courses through 
the consortium with waiver of fees. Students interested in additional 
information about the consortium program should contact the consortium 
coordinator in the Office of Records and Registrations, Mitchell Building. 

Veterans Benefits 

Students attending the university under the Veterans Education Assis- 
tance Act (Title 38. U.S. Code) may receive assistance and enrollment 
certification at the Veterans Certification Office In Records and Registra- 
tions, first floor of the Mitchell Building. Consult the Schedule of Classes 
for further information. 

Identification Cards 

There are two cards, used jointly, to identify currently enrolled students: 
the photo ID and the semester registration card. The photo ID card Is 
Issued at the time the student first registers for classes. This card Is to be 
used for the entire duration of enrollment. The semester registration card 
validates the photo Identification card and is Issued for each semester in 
which the student is registered. Both cards should be earned at all times. 

Together the photo identification card and semester registration card can 
be used by students to withdraw books from the libraries, for admission 
to most athletic, social, and cultural events, and as a general form of 
Identification on campus. Students who have food sen/ice contracts use 
a separate identification card issued by Dining Services. 

There is a replacement charge of $1 .00 for lost or stolen registration cards 
and $7.00 for lost, stolen or broken photo Identification cards. Questions 
concerning the identification card system should be addressed to the 
Office of Records and Registrations. 

Ctiange of Address 

Students are expected to notify the Office of Records and Registrations 
of any change in their local or permanent address. Change of Address 
fornis are available at the Registration Counter, first floor, Mitchell Building 
and at the Office of the Bursar, first floor, Lee Building. 

Attendance 

1 . The university expects each student to take full responsibility for his 
or her academic work and academic progress. The student, to 
progress satisfactorily, 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 gain 
developing command of the concepts and materials of their course 
of study. However, attendance In class. In and of Itself, is not 
criterion for evaluation of the student's degree of success or failure. 
Furthermore, absences (whether excused or unexcused) do not 
alter what is expected of the student qualitatively and quantita- 
tively. 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. 



42 Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 



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 conversa- 
tion in foreign languages, certain courses in physical education, 
and certain laboratory sessions. Each department shall determine 
which of its courses tall into this category. It shall be the responsi- 
bility 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 
he or she will be given an opportunity to make up this work later in 
the 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 student's dean or college officer when the student 
has accumulated 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 accor- 
dance with the general policy of his or her department and college. 

Statement on Classroom Climate 

The University of (Maryland at College Park values the diversity of its 
student body and is committed to providing a classroom atmosphere that 
encourages the equitable participation of all students. Patterns of interac- 
tion in the classroom between the faculty member and students and 
among the students themselves may inadvertently communicate precon- 
ceptions about student abilities based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, 
national origin, race, religion or sexual orientation. These patterns are due 
in part to the differences the students themselves bring to the classroom. 
Classroom instructors should be particularly sensitive to being equitable 
in the opportunities they provide students to answer questions in class, to 
contribute their own ideas, and to participate fully in projects in and outside 
of the classroom. 

Of equal importance to equity in the classroom is the need to attend to 
potential devaluation of students that can occur by reference to demean- 
ing stereotypes of any group and/or overlooking the contributions of a 
particular group to the topic under discussion. Joking at the expense of 
any group creates an inhospitable environment and is inappropriate. 
Moreover, in providing evaluations of students, it is essential that instruc- 
tors avoid distorting these evaluations with preconceived expectations 
about the intellectual capacities of any group. 

It is the responsibility of individual faculty members to review their 
classroom behaviors, and those of any teaching assistants they super- 
vise, to ensure that students are treated equitably and not discouraged or 
devalued based on their differences. Resources for self-evaluation and 
training for faculty members on classroom climate and interaction patterns 
are available from the Office of Human Relations. 

Examinations 

1 All examinations and tests shall be given dunng class hours in ac- 
cordance with the regularly scheduled (or officially "arranged") 
time and place of each course listed in the Schedule of Classes. 
Unpublished changes in the scheduling or location of classes/ 
tests must tje approved by the department chair and reported to 
the dean. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed 
concerning the dates of announced quizzes, tests, and examina- 
tions. 

2. It is the policy of the university to excuse the absences of students 
that result from religious observances and to provide without 
penalty for the rescheduling of examinations and other wntten 
tests that fall on religious holidays. Examinations and other written 
tests may not be scheduled on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, or 
Good Friday. An instructor is not under obligation to give a student 
a make-up examination unless the absence was caused by 
illness, religious observance, participation in university activities 
at the request of university authorities, or compelling circum- 
stances beyond the student's control. In cases of dispute, the 
student may appeal to the chair of the department offenng the 
course within one week from the date of the refusal of the nght to 
take a make-up exam. A make-up examination, when permitted, 
must be given on campus, unless the published schedule and 
course description require other arrangements. The make-up 
examination must be at a time and a place mutually agreeable to 



the instructor and student, cover only the material tor whk;h the 
student was originally responsible, and be given with in a time limit 
that retains currency of the material. The make-up must not 
interfere with the student's regularly scheduled classes In tfie 
event thai a group of students require the same make up exami- 
nation, one make-up time may be scheduled at the convenience 
of the instructor and the largest possible number of students 
involved. Under the same guidelines students shall have equal 
access to all information and drills missed due to the reasons 
listed. 

3. A final examination shall be given in every undergraduate course. 
Exceptions may be made with the written approval of the chair of 
the department and the dean. To avoid basing too much of the 
semester-grade upon the final examination, additional tests, quiz- 
zes, term papers, reports and the like should t>e used to determine 
a student's comprehension of a course. The order of procedure in 
these matters is left to the discretion of departments or professors 
and should be announced to the class at the beginning of course. 
All final examinations must be held on the examination days of the 
Official Final Examination Schedule No final examination shall be 
given at a time other than that scheduled in the Official Examina- 
tion Schedule without written permission of the department chair 

4. As of fall semester, 1980, graduating seniors will be expected to 
take final exams during the regular examination penod. However, 
graduating seniors are not required to take final examinations on 
the day of graduation or on any regularly scheduled examination 
day following graduation. In courses with exams scheduled on 
those days, graduating seniors are expected to see their instruc- 
tors early in the semester to make alternate arrangements. 

5. A file of all final examination questions must be kept by the chair 
of each department. 

6. The chair of each department is responsible for the adequate ad- 
ministration of examinations in courses under his or her jurisdic- 
tion. The deans should present the matter of examinations for con- 
sideration in staff conferences from time to time and investigate 
examination procedures in their respective colleges. 

7. Every examination shall be designed to require for its completion 
not more than the regularly scheduled period except for final ex- 
aminations. 

8. A typewritten, mimeographed or printed set of questions shall be 
placed in the hands of every examinee in every test or examination 
requiring at least one period, unless the dean has authonzed 
some other procedure. 

9. Each instructor must safeguard examination questions and all tnal 
sheets, drafts, and stencils. 

10. Each instructor should avoid the use of examination questions 
which have been included in recently given examinations and 
should prepare examinations that will make dishonesty difficult. 

11. Only clerical help approved by the department chair shall be 
employed in the preparation or reproduction of tests or examina- 
tion questions 

12. Proctors must be in the examination room at least ten minutes 
before the hour of a final examination. Provisions shouW be made 
for proper ventilation, lighting, and a seating plan At least one of 
the proctors present must be sufficiently cognizant of the sub)ecl 
matter of the examination to deal authontatively with inquines 
arising from the examination. 

1 3. Books, papers, etc. t)elonging to the student, must tw left in a place 
designated by the instructor before the student takes his or her 
seat, except in such cases where books or work sheets are 
permitted. 

14. Students should be seated at least every other seat apart, or its 
equivalent, i.e., atwut three feet. Where this an^angement is not 
possible some means must be provided to protect the integnty of 
the examination. 

15 "Blue twoks" only must be used in penodic or final examinations 
unless special forms are furnished by the department concerned 

16. If mathematical tables are required m an examination, they shall 
be furnished by the instructor. If textbooks are used, this rule does 
not apply 

1 7. Proctors must exerase all diligence to prevent dishonesty and to 
enforce proper examination decorum, including abstention from 
smoking. 

18 Where an mstaictor must proctor more than forty students, he or 
she should consult the chair of the department concerning proc- 
torial assistance. An instructor should consult tfie department 
chair if in his or her opinion a smaller numt>er of students for an 
examination requires the help of another instructor 

19 No student who leaves an examination room will be p)ermitted to 
return, except in unusual circumstances, in which case permis- 
sion to do so must be granted by the proctor poor to tfie student s 
departure. 

20. All conversation will cease prior to the passing out of examination

surface until the examination is officially begun by the proctor. 
22. Examination papers will be kept flat on the whting surface at all 
times. 



RECORDS 

Marking System and Record Notations 

The Records Office, located on the first floor of the l\/1itchell Building, is 
responsible for maintaining student records and issuing official tran- 
scripts. 

The following 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, C, D, F, I. P, S, and W. These marks 
remain as part of the student's permanent records 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, 

A — denotes excellent mastery of the subject and 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. 

B — denotes good mastery of the subject and good scholarship, A 
mark of B is assigned a value of 3 quality points per credit hour, 

C — denotes acceptable mastery of the subject and the usual 
achievement expected, A mark of C is assigned a value of 2 quality 
points per credit hour. 

D — denotes borderline understanding of the subject. It denotes 
marginal performance, and it does not represent satisfactory 
progress toward a degree, A mark of D is assigned a value of 1 
quality point per credit hour, 

F — denotes failure to understand the subject and unsatisfactory 
performance, A mark of F is assigned a value of quality points per 
credit hour. 

S — is a department option mark that may be used to denote 
satisfactory performance by a student in progressing thesis proj- 
ects, orientation courses, practice teaching, and the like. In com- 
putation of cumulative averages a mark of S will not be included. 

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

Audit — A student may register to audit a course or courses which 
have been designated as available under the audit option and in 
which space is available. The notation AUD will be placed on the 
transcript for each course audited, A notation to the effect that this 
symbol does not imply attendance or any other effort in the course 
will be included on the transcript in the explanation of the grading 
system, 

Pass/Fail — The mark of P is a student option mark, equivalent to 
A, B, C. or D, The student must inform the Registrations Office of 
the selection of this option by the end of the schedule adjustment 
period. 

The following policy was approved by the Board of Regents for implem- 
entation beginning with the spring 1989 semester: 

1 , To register for a course under the pass-fail option, an undergradu- 
ate must have completed 30 or more credit fiours of college credit 
with a GPA of at least 2,0, At least 1 5 of these credit hours must 
have been completed at UMCP with a University of IVIaryland GPA 
of at least 2.0, 



2. Courses tor which this option applies must be electives in the 
student's program The courses may not be college, major, field of 
concentration, or general education program requirements. 

3. Only one course per semester may be registered tor under the 
pass-fail option. 

4. No more than 1 2 semester hours of credit may be taken under the 
pass-fail option during a student's college career. 

5. Students may not choose this option when reregistering for a 
course 

6. When registering under the pass-fail option, a course that is 
passed will count as hours in the student's record but will not be 
computed in the grade point average A course that is failed will 
appear on the student s record and will be computed Ixith in the 
overall average and the semester average, 

7. Students registering for a course under the pass-fail option are 
required to complete all regular course requirements. Their work 
will be evaluated by the instructor by the normal procedure for letter 
grades. The instructor will submit the normal grade. The grades A, 
B, C, or D will automatically be converted by the Office of Records 
and Registrations to the grade P on the student's permanent 
record. The grade F will remain as given. The choice of grading 
option may be changed only during the schedule adjustment period 
for courses in which the student is currently registered. 

Incompletes. The mark of "I " is an exceptional mark that 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. 

1 . 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 and to request that an Incomplete 
Contract be written. These arrangements must be documented in 
the Incomplete Contract, and signed by both the student and the 
instructor. 

2. The Incomplete Contract must be submitted to the dean of the 
college offering the course, and a copy forwarded to the Records 
Office, within six weeks after the grade submittal deadline or the "I" 
will convert to a grade of "F," A copy of the signed agreement 
should also be filed m the department office, 

3, All course work 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, ttie department chair will, upon request of 
the student, make the arrangements forthe student to complete the 
course requirements. 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 
concerned to return the appropriate supplementary grade report, 
both to the appropriate dean and to the Office of Records and 
Registrations, upon completion of the conditions of the Incomplete 
Contract, 

6, The "I" cannot be removed through re-registration for the course or 
through the technique of "credit by examination," In any event this 
mark shall not be used in any computation of quality points or 
cumulative averages. 

Record Notations 

In addition to the above marks, there are provisions for other record or 
transcript notations that may be used based on university [XJlicy and 

individual circumstances. 

Repeat: Beginning fall 1973 the highest grade received in the repeated 
course is used to calculate the GPA. A student may repeat any course; 
however no student may be registered for a course more than three times. 

If a student repeats a course in which he or she has already earned a mark 
of A, B, C, D. P, or S, the subsequent attempt shall not increase the total 
hours earned toward the degree. Only the highest mark will be used in 
computation of the student's cumulative average. Under unusual circum- 
stances, the student's dean may grant an exception to this policy. 



44 Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 



Duplicate course: Used to indicate two courses with the same course 
content. The second course is counted in cumulative totals unless an 
exception is made by the student's dean. 

Non-applicable (Non-AppI): In all cases of transfer from one college to 
another at the University of (Maryland at College Park, the dean of the 
receiving college, with the approval of the student, shall indicate which 
courses, if any, in the students previous academic program are not 
applicable to his or her new program, and shall notify the Office of Records 
and Registration 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 correspondingly in credits earned. This evaluation shall be 
made upon the students initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. 
If a student transfers from one program to another, his or her record 
evaluation shall be made by the dean in the same way as if he or she were 
transferring colleges. If the student subsequently transfers 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 appli- 
cable in the third program. 

Excluded Credit (Excl Crd): Excluded credit is noted when Academic 
Clemency has been granted. 

Academic Clemency Policy 

Undergraduate students returning to the University of IVIaryland at College 
Park after a separation of a minimum of five calendar years may petition 
the appropriate dean to have a number of previously earned grades and 
credits removed from the calculation of their cumulative grade point 
average. Up to sixteen credits and corresponding grades from courses 
previously completed at the University of Ivlaryland at College Park will be 
removed from calculation of the grade point average and will not be 
counted toward graduation requirements. The petition for clemency must 
be filed in the first semester of return to the campus. Approval is neither 
automatic nor guaranteed. 

Proficiency Examination Programs 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers several opportunities to 
earn college credit through satisfactory achievement in a variety of 
examinations for new, continuing and returning students. 

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 student's 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 not be 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, 1117 Hornbake Library, 
454-2733. 

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

1. Advanced Placement Programs (AP). For complete policy and 
awarded credit information, see Chapter 2 on Admissions. 

2. 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 Examinations, 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 College Park for some CLEP General or Subject 
Examinations, provided satisfactory scores are attained. Credits 
earned under CLEP are not considered "residence" credit, but are 
treated as transfer credit. 

Policies and Administration of CLEP 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 four working weeks prior to the 
intended test date. The University of Maryland is a CLEP Test Center 
(Test Center Code #5814). 

The fees for these examinations are listed on the standard CLEP applica- 
tion. To obtain an application or additional information, contact the CLEP 
Administrator in the Counseling Center, 0106A Shoemaker Building, 



454-3126, or write to CLEP, CN 6600, Princeton, NJ 08541-6600. 

Students who want to earn credit through CLEP must have their otfiaal 
score reports sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Mitchell 
Building, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. (University of 
Maryland at College Park Score Recipient Code #5814) 

A student must matnculate at the University of Maryland at College Park 
before requesting the posting 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 institution of the University of Maryland System establishes stan- 
dards for acceptance of CLEP and AP exemptions and credits Students 
must check with the institution to which they will transfer to learn if they will 
lose, maintain, or gain credit. 

The University of Maryland at College Park 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, and 
was not taken during a student's final thirty credits. The final thirty hours 
of credit are to be taken in residence, unless pnor approval has been 
granted by the student's dean. 

Credit will not be given for both completing a course and passing an 
examination covering substantially the same matenal. Furthermore, credit 
will not be awarded for CLEP examinations if the student has previously 
completed more advanced courses in the same field. 

CLEP examinations posted on transcripts from other institutions will be 
accepted if the examination has been approved by the University of 
Maryland at College Park 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.

3. Credit by Examination — (Departmental Profiaency Examina- 
tions) College Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, cus- 
tomanly referred to as "credit by examination," are ottered m a 
number of courses, and are comparable to comprehensive 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 matenal which might Ije 
helpful in prepanng for examinations. An undergraduate wtio 



Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 45 



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 (e.g., 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. Initial inquiry as to whether an 
examination in a specific course is available is best made at the academic 
department office which offers the course in question. Any student who 
wishes more information or to apply for an examination should inquire at 
the Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 1117, Hornbake Library. 

Policies governing credit by examination are as follows: 

1 . The applicant must be formally admitted to the University of Mary- 
land at College Park. Posting of credit, however, will be delayed 
until the student is registered. 

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

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

4. 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 com- 
pletion 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 final 
submission of the grade, student may elect not to have this 
grade recorded. In this case, a mark of W is recorded. (Equiva- 
lent to the drop period) 

c. No course may be attempted more than twice. 

d. The instructor must certify on the report of the examination 
submitted to the Office of Records and Registrations 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 chair of the department 
offering the course. 

5. Letter grades earned on examinations to establish credit, if ac- 
cepted by the student, are entered on the student's transcript and 
used in computing his/her cumulative grade point average. A 
student may elect to take an examination in an elective only for 
credit on a "Pass-Fail" basis. Since January 1989 no college, 
major, field of concentration, or general education program re- 
quirements may be taken under the pass-fail option. Please refer 
to the Pass-Fail policy under the "Records" section in this chapter. 



TRANSFER CREDIT 

The Records Office posts all transfer credit that would be acceptable to 
any of the degree programs at the University of IVIaryland at College Park. 
The dean of the college in which the student is enrolled determines which 
transfer credits are applicable to the student's degree program. In general, 
credit from academic courses taken at institutions of higher education 
accredited by a regional accrediting association will transfer, 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 the College Park campus. The title 
of courses accepted for transfer credit will be noted on the student's 
record; however, the grade will not. Grades from transferred courses are 
not included in the UI^CP grade point average calculation. See Chapter 
2, Admissions, for additional information. 

Courses Taken at Other Institutions While Attending the 
University of Maryland at College Park 

1 . Courses taken at another institution. Courses taken at another 
institution may not be credited toward a degree without approval in 
advance by the dean of the college from which the student expects 
a degree. The same rule applies to registration in the summer 
program of another institution. "Permission to Enroll in Another 
Institution" forms are available in the office of the students dean. 
This form must be submitted and approved by the college for any 
course which will eventually be added to the College Park tran- 
script. 

2. Courses taken at other University of Maryland Institutions. For 
students who began their attendance at the University of Maryland 
at College Park fall 1989 or later, all coursework taken at any 



University of Maryland System (UMS) institution will be posted as 
transfer credit. For all students who attended the College Park 
campus prior to fall 1 989. courses taken at another campus of the 
University of Maryland Board of Regents institution ( UMBC. UMAB, 
UMES, UMUC) pnor to fall 1 989 will be included in the cumulative 
GPA. Courses taken at any other institution may not be credited 
toward a degree without advance approval See #1 above for 
information 

3 UMS Concurrent Inter-Campus Institutional Registration 
Program College Park undergraduate students participating in the 
UMS Concurrent Inter-lnstitutional Registration Program may 
receive permission from their dean to have coursework count as 
resident credit Students participating in this program must be 
enrolled full-time in a degree program at College Park for the 
semester in which these courses are taken. 

4. Consortium ot Universities of the Washington Metropolitan 
Area Courses taken through the Consortium are considered to be 
resident credit. See above under "Consortium" and see the Sched- 
ule of Classes for information. 



REQUIREMENTS FOR RETENTION 

Academic retention is based solely on grade point average (GPA). The 
significance of the cumulative grade point average (cumulative GPA) 
varies according to the number of credits attempted. A minimum of 120 
credits of successfully completed (not I, F, or W) course credits is required 
for graduation in any degree curriculum. 

Semester Academic Honors (Dean's List) 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 individuals permanent 
record. 

Satisfactory Performance applies to those students with a cumulative 
GPA between 4.000 and 2.000. 

1. 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. Credit level is defined as 
course with grades of A. B, C, D, F, P,S, transfer credit from other 
institutions, advanced placements (AP). CLEP. and other similar 
tests for which credit is given.

1.939-1.830 1.829-0.000 

1.999-1.940 1.939-0.000 



2. Computation of GPA. Credits completed with grades of A, B, 
Cand F. but not P and S, will be used in computation of the 
semester and cumulative GPA with values of 4.000, 3.000, 2.000, 
1 .000 and 0.000 respectively. Marks of I. P, S, W, and NGR will not 
be used in the computation of semester and cumulative GPA. 

For students who began their attendance at the University of 
Maryland at College Park fall 1989 or later, all coursework taken 
at any University of Maryland System (UMS) institution will be 
posted as transfer credit. College Park undergraduate students 
participating in the UMS Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registra- 
tion Program may receive permission from their dean to have 
coursework count as resident credit. Students participating in this 
program must be enrolled full-time in a degree program at the 
university for the semester in which these courses are taken. For 
all students who attended the College Park campus prior to fall 
1989, courses taken at another campus of the University of 
Maryland Board of Regents institutions (UMBC, UMAB. UMES, 
UMUC) prior to fall 1989 will be included in the cumulative GPA. 

3. Students with an unsatisfactory performance for any semester will 
be urged in writing to consult their advisors. 

4. Students on academic warning will have this fact noted on their 
transcripts and will be urged in writing to consult with their advisors 
prior to the beginning of the next semester. Students who receive 
an academic warning in any semester will not be allowed either to 



46 Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 



add or drop courses or to register during the semester following 
the receipt of the academic warning without seeing an advisor. 

5. Any student with sixty credits or more attempted and who there- 
after received academic warning for two consecutive semesters 
will be academically dismissed. Students who are academically 
dismissed will have this action entered on their transcript. 

6. No student transferring to the University of Maryland at College 
Park from outside the University of Maryland will be subject to 
Academic Dismissal at the end of the first semester as long as the 
student obtains a cumulative GPA of 0.23 or more. (A student who 
would otherwise be subject to Academic Dismissal will receive an 
Academic Warning.) Thereafter, such a student will be subject to 
the normal standards of academic progress. This provision does 
not apply to students reinstated or readmitted to College Park. A 
transfer student is defined as a student who has attended any 
regularly accredited institution of higher education following gradu- 
ation from high school and attempted nine or more credits. 

7. A student who has been academically dismissed and who is rein- 
stated will be academically dismissed again if minimum academic 
standard are not met by the end of the first semester after rein- 
statement. (See Readmission and Reinstatement.) 

8. Credits transferred, or earned during prior admissions terminating 
in academic dismissal or withdrawal and followed by readmission, 
will be applicable toward meeting credit requirements for a de- 
gree. 

9. Under unusual circumstances, the Faculty Petition Board may set 
more rigorous requirements for the semester in which a reinstated 
student returns, or may allow a lengthened period (not to exceed 
two semesters) to reach the minimum or set academic standards. 

10. Any appeal from the regulations governing academic warning or 
academic dismissal shall be directed to the Faculty Petition Board 
which shall be empowered to grant relief in unusual cases if the 
circumstances warrant such action. 

1 1 . A student may repeat any course; however no student may be 
registered for a course more than three times. If a student repeats 
a course in which he or she has already earned a mark of A, B, C, 
D, P, or S, the subsequent attempt shall not increase the total 
hours earned toward the degree. Only the highest mark will be 
used in computation of the student's cumulative average. Under 
unusual circumstances, the student's dean may grant an excep- 
tion to this policy. 

Dismissal of Deiinquent Students. The university reserves the right to 
request at any time the withdrawal of a student who cannot or does not 
maintain the required standard of scholarship, or whose continuance in 
the university would be detrimental to his or her health, or to the health of 
others, or whose conduct is not satisfactory to the authorities of the 
university. Additional information about the dismissal of delinquent stu- 
dents may be found in the Code of Student Conduct, Appendix C. 



GRADUATION AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 

The University of Maryland at College Park awards the following degrees: 
Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of General Studies (no admission to program 
as of fall 1988), Bachelor of Music, Bachelorof Science, Master of Applied 
Anthropology, Master of Architecture, Master of Arts, Master of Business 
Administration, Master of Education, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Library 
Science, Master of Music, Master of Public Management. Master of Public

Graduation Applications 

Each candidate for a degree or certificate must file a formal application 
with the Office of Records and Registrations The deadline for application 
is the end of the schedule adjustment period for the semester in which the 
student plans to graduate, or at the end of the first week of the second 
summer session for August degrees. 

In all cases, graduation applications must be filed at the beginning of the 
student's final semester before receiving a degree. If all degree require- 
ments 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-refund- 
able charge. If a subsequent application is filed lor the same degree, the 
fee will not be charged a second time. 



Degree Requirements 

The requirements for graduation vary according to the character ol work 
in the different colleges, schools, departments and academic units. It is the 
responsibility of the colleges, schools, departments and other academic 
units to establish and publish clearly defined degree requirements. 
Responsibility lor knowing and meeting all degree requirements for 
graduation in any curriculum rests with the student. Specific degree 
requirements are listed in this catalog under the college and'or depart- 
ment as appropriate. 

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

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 ol the under- 
graduate program. Included in these thirty semester hours will 
be a minimum of fifteen semester hours in courses numtjered 
300 or above, including at least twelve semester hours required 
in the major field (in curricula 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. Exceptions beyond six credits will be made only 
under highly unusual circumstances; requests for an exception 
must be made through the Dean's office to the Office of the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. 

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

2) Enrollment in Majors. 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, prepro- 
fessional degree programs. 

3) Credit Requirements. While several undergraduate curricula re- 
quire more than 1 20 credits, no baccalaureate curriculum requires 
fewer than 120. No baccalaureate degree will be awarded in 
instances in which fewer than 1 20 credit hours have been earned. 
It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize himself or 
herself with the requirements of specific curncula. 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 the University of Maryland at 
College Park, a minimum of thirty credits must be taken in resi- 
dence. 

4) Grade Point Average 

A minimum 2.00 grade point average is required for graduation in 

all curricula 

Second Degrees and Second Majors 

a. Second Degree Taken Sequentially. A student who has com- 
pleted requirements lor and has received one baccalaureate 
degree and who wishes to earn a second baccalaureate degree 
from College Park must satisfactonly complete the requirements of 
the second degree and enough additional credits so that the total. 
including all applicable credits earned at College Par1< or else- 
where, is at least 150 credits In no case, however, will a second 
baccalaureate degree be awarded to a student who has not 
completed thirty credits 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 satisfactorily complete a minimum ol 150 credits (180 
credits if one of the degrees is in Special Education) The regularly 
prescribed requirements of both degree programs must be com- 
pleted. As early as possible and. in any case, no later than one full 
semester (preferably one year) t>efore the expected date of gradu- 



Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 47 



ation, the student must file with the departments or programs 
involved, as weii as with the appropriate deans, formal programs 
showing the courses to be offered to meet the major, supporting 
area, college, and general education program requirements If two 
colleges are involved in the double degree program, the student 
must designate which college is responsible for the maintenance 
of records Approval of the second degree will not be granted when 
there is extensive overlap between two programs 
Second Major. A student who wishes to complete a second major 
currently with his or her primary major of record must obtain written 
permission in advance from the appropriate deans. As early as 
possible, but in no case later than one full semester before the 
expected date of graduation, the student must file with the depart- 
ments 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 the college 
and general education program requirements. Approval will not be 
granted if there isextensive overlap between the two programs. 
Students enrolled in two majors simultaneously must satisfactorily 
complete the regularly prescnbed requirements lor 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 
(or the general education requirements as appropriate If two 
colleges are involved in the double major program, the student 
must designate which college is responsible for the maintenance 
of records. 



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 GPA of the students of 
the preceding three commencements of each degree-granting unit. To be 
eligible tor this recognition, at least 60 credits must be earned at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. These may include transfer 
grades that have been calculated in the College Park GPA. The compu- 
tation of the cumulative grade point average does not include grades for 
courses taken during the last semester of registration before graduation, 
although the hours earned for that semester will apply toward the 60 hour 
requirement. No student with a grade point average less than 3.000 will 
be considered 

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

The process for election to Phi Beta Kappa involves the annual review in 
March by a select committee of faculty members representing the humani- 
ties, social sciences and natural sciences. The committee reviews tran- 
scripts of all juniors and seniors with qualifying grade point averages 
(irrespective of the graduation month of such a student). Whether a 
student qualifies for membership in Phi Beta Kappa depends on the 
quality, depth and breadth of the student's record in liberal education 
courses. The final decision for election rests with the resident faculty 
members of Phi Beta Kappa. There is no application procedure for 
election to Phi Beta Kappa. 

Requirements for selection to membership in the campus chapter of Phi 
Beta Kappa include: 

1 . Residence, At least 60 hours taken at the College Park campus of 
the University of Maryland. 

2. Liberal Courses. For seniors, at least 90 hours in liberal courses in 
the arts and sciences (where "liberal" means academic, rather than 
professional or technical) at least 45 of which are at the College 
Park campus. For juniors, at least 75 total hours must be com- 
pleted, at least 60 of which are liberal courses, of which at least 45 
are at the College Park campus. 

3. Required Courses. One semester of mathematics and two semes- 
ters at least at the elementary level of one foreign language. The 
mathematics requirement must be fulfilled by college credit hours; 
the foreign language requirement may be fulfilled by a proficiency 
examination. 



4. Grade Point Average For seniors a grade point average of at least 
3.5 in all liberal courses taken, for )uniors a grade point average of 
at least 3.75 in such courses. 

5. Distnbution Normally the credit hours presented lor Phi Beta 
Kappa must contain at least nine liberal hours in each of the three 
areas of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences (includ- 
ing a laboratory science course). Students with more challenging 
courses and moderately high grade point averages are preferred 
by the committee to those with higher grade point averages but a 
narrow range of courses Minimal qualifications in more than one 
area may preclude election to Phi Beta Kappa. 

Recommended criteria include: 

1. Regular grades (rather than pass/fail) in (a) mathematics and 
foreign language courses, and (b) distribution areas in which the 
number of courses taken is minimal. 

2. Some traditional social sciences and humanities courses that re- 
quire written essays and papers. (Note that internships may be 
counted as professional courses and not as liberal courses.) 

3. Courses in at least two of the required areas to be taken at the 
College Park campus, especially if courses are transferred from 
other institutions without chapters of Phi Beta Kappa. 

Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee election to Phi Beta 
Kappa. The judgment of the resident faculty members of Phi Beta Kappa 
on the quality, depth, and breadth of the student's record is the deciding 
factor in every case. 

Any questions about criteria for election to Phi Beta Kappa (including 
equivalency examinations in foreign languages) should be directed to the 
Phi Beta Kappa Office, 2103 Mathematics Building, 454-3303.

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE 
PARK CODE OF ACADEMIC INTEGRITY 

Introduction 

The university is an academic community. Its fundamental purpose is the 
pursuit of knowledge. Like all other communities, the university can 
function properly only if its members adhere to clearly established goals 
and values. Essential to the fundamental purpose of the university is the 
commitment to the pnnciples of truth and academic honesty. Accordingly, 
The Code of Academic Integrity is designed to ensure that the principle of 
academic honesty is upheld. While all members of the university share this 
responsibility. The Code of Academic Integrity is designed so that special 
responsibility for upholding the principle of academic honesty lies with the 
students. 

Definitions 

1 . ACADEMIC DISHONESTY Any of the following acts, when com- 
mitted by a student, shall constitute academic dishonesty: 

(a) CHEATING — intentionally using or attempting to use un- 
authonzed materials, information, or study aids in any aca- 
demic 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 violate any 
provision of this code. 

(d) PLAGIARISM — intentionally or knowingly representing the 
words or ideas of another as one's own in any academic 
exercise. 

Responsibility to Report Academic 
Dishonesty 

2. Academic dishonesty is a corrosive force in the academic life of a 
university. It jeopardizes the quality of education and depreciates 
the genuine achievements of others. It is. without reservation, a 
responsibility of all members of the campus community to actively 
deter if. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of academic 
dishonesty is not a neutral act. Histories of institutions demonstrate 
that a laissez-faire response will reinforce, perpetuate, and enlarge 
the scope of such misconduct. Institutional reputations for aca- 
demic dishonesty are regrettable aspects of modern education. 
These reputations become self-fulfilling and grow, unless vigor- 
ously challenged by students and faculty alike. 

All members of the university communitystudents, faculty, 
and staffshare the responsibility and authority to challenge 
and make known acts of apparent academic dishonesty. 

Faculty must undertake a threshold responsibility for such tradi- 
tional safeguards as examination security and proctoring. 

Honor Pledge 

3. All applicants for admission to undergraduate or graduate pro- 
grams at the University of f^aryland College Park, as well as all 
students registering for courses, will be expected to sign an Honor 
Pledge as a condition of admission and at each registration. The 
wording of the pledge will be recommended by the Student Honor 
Council, for approval by the Campus Senate. 

Pocedures: Academic Dishonesty 

4. Any member of the university community who has witnessed an 
apparent act of academic dishonesty, or has information that 
reasonably leads to the conclusion that such an act has occurred 
or has been attempted, has the responsibility to inform the Office 
of Judicial Programs promptly. The Office of Judicial Programs 
will then send a written report of the allegation to the Student 
Honor Council, the accused student, and the instructor teaching 
the course. 

5. Upon receipt of a report of academic dishonesty, the Student 
Honor Council will assign the matter to three of its members for 
preliminary inquiry. Members of the Student Honor Council 



when acting in this capacity shall be designated Review Officers. 
In the event the report pertains to the conduct of a graduate 
student, then at least two Review Officers will be graduate 
students. 

6. The Review Officers shall conduct a preliminary inquiry into the 
facts of the case in order to determine if there is reasonable cause 
to believe that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred, or has 
been attempted. 

7. University administrators and faculty members are expected to 
provide reasonable assistance to the Review Officers, and to 
permit access to pertinent student papers or examinations, as de- 
termined by the Vice President lor Academic Affairs. The Review 
Officers shall be advised by the Director of Judicial Programs. 

8. If, after consultation with the Director of Judicial Programs: 

(a) a majority of Review Officers determine that an act of aca- 
demic dishonesty did not occur, or was not attempted, the 
council will inform the student and the course instructor of its 
finding: or 

(b) if a majority of Review Officers determine that there is rea- 
sonable cause to believe that an act of academic dishonesty 
did occur, or was attempted, they will forward a wntten referral 
containing a statement of facts and their rationale to the 
Student Honor Council. 

9. Upon receipt of a written referral from the Review Officers, the 
Student Honor Council shall: 

(a) convene an Honor Board to resolve the matter through an 
Honor Review. The Board will be selected in the manner de- 
scribed in Paragraph 13, below. 

(b) Appoint one of the Review Officers or the Campus Advocate 
to serve as the Presenter of the case. The responsibilities of 
the Presenter are more fully described in Paragraph 11, 
below. 

1 0. The meetings and deliberations of the Review Officers and of the 
Student Honor Council shall be privileged and confidential. 

1 1 . The principal responsibilities of the Presenter are: 

(a) to prepare a formal Charge of Academic Dishonesty, in- 
cluding the identity of the complaining party, and deliver it to 
the student and the Honor Board. The student will be deemed 
to have received such notice on the date of personal delivery, 
or if certified mail is used, on the date of delivery at the most 
recent address provided to the university by the student: 

(b) to inform the complaining party of the actions being taken; 

(c) to present the evidence and analysis upon which the Charge 
is based to the Honor Board during the Honor Review; 

(d) to perform such other duties as may be requested by the 
Student Honor Council or the Honor Board. 

12. The Charge of Academic Dishonesty serves to give a student 
a reasonable understanding of the act and circumstances to be 
considered by the Honor Board, thereby placing the student in a 
position to contribute in a meaningful way to the inquiry. It also 
serves to provide initial focus to that inquiry. It is not, however, a 
technical or legal document, and is not analogous to an indictment 
or other form of process. The charge may be modified as the 
discussion proceeds, as long as the accused student is accorded 
a reasonable opportunity to prepare a response. 

Procedures: Resolution by an Honor 
Review 

1 3. An Honor Review is conducted by an Honor Board. The Board 
is convened by the Student Honor Council acting for the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. It must consist of six persons, five 
of whom will be voting members. Determinations of the Honor 
Board will be by a majority vote (three votes or more). Honor 
Boards are selected as follows: 

(a) three students selected by the Student Honor Council from 
among its members. In the event the student accused of 
academic dishonesty is a graduate student, then at least two 
of the student members shall be graduate students. No 
person who served as a Review Officer may serve on a 
factually related Honor Board. 

(b) Two faculty members selected in accordance with proce- 
dures established by the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 
In the event the student accused of academic dishonesty is a 
graduate student, then at least one of the persons selected 
shall be a regular member of the Graduate Faculty. 

(c) The Honor Board shall have one non-voting member, who 
shall serve as the Presiding Officer. The Presiding Officer 



50 Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 



may be a student, faculty, or staff member of tfie university. 
The Presiding Officer will be selected by the Director of 
Judicial Programs. 

14. If the Vice President tor Academic Affairs determines that the 
Student Honor Council or a Student Honor Board cannot be 
convened within a reasonable period of time after an accusation 
is made, the Vice President or a designee may review the case 
If there is reasonable cause to believe that an act of academic 
dishonesty has occurred or has Ijeen attempted, the Vice Presi- 
dent or designee will convene an ad hoc Honor Board by 
selecting and appointing two students and one faculty/staff memlser 
Whenever possible, student members of ad hoc honor boards 
shall be members of the Student Honor Council. A non-voting 
presiding officer shall be appointed by the Director of Judicial 
Programs. If Review Officers cannot be appointed in accordance 
with Part Five of this Code, the Campus Advocate or another 
person designated by the Vice President for Academic Affairs will 
serve in that capacity. 

1 5. The purpose of an Honor Review is to explore and investigate the 
incident giving rise to the appearance of academic dishonesty, to 
reach an informed conclusion as to whether or not academic 
dishonesty occurred, and to make a recommendation to the 
Dean.' In keeping with the ultimate premise and justification of 
academic life, the duty of all persons at an Honor Review is to 
assist in a thorough and honest exposition of all related facts. 

The basic tenets of scholarship — full and willing disclosure, accu- 
racy of statement, and intellectual integrity in hypothesis, in 
argument and in conclusion — must always take precedence over 
the temptation to gain a particular resolution of the case. An Honor 
Review is not in the character of a criminal or civil legal proceeding. 
It is not modeled on these adversarial systems; nor does it serve 
the same social functions. It is not a court or tribunal. Rather, it is 
an academic process unique to the community of scholars that 
comprise a university. 

16. The role of the Presiding Officer is to exercise impartial control 
over the Honor Review in order to achieve an equitable, orderiy, 
timely and efficient process. The Presiding Officer is authorized 
to make all decisions and rulings as are necessary and proper to 
achieve that end, including such decisions and rulings as pertain 
to scheduling and to the admissibility of evidence. If in the 
judgment of the Presiding Officer there is reasonable cause to 
question the impartiality of a board member, the Presiding 
Officer will so inform the Honor Council, which will reconstitute the 
board. 

1 7. The Presiding Officer will select the date, time and place for the 
Honor Review, and notify the student in writing a minimum of ten 
(10) days prior to the review. 

1 8. The sequence of an Honor Review is necessarily controlled by the 
nature of the incident to be investigated and the character of the 
infonnation to be examined. It thus lies within the judgment of the 
Presiding Officer to fashion the most reasonable approach. The 
following steps, however, have been found to be efficient, and are 
generally recommended: 

(a) The Presenter, and then the student, summarize the matter 
before the Honor Board, including any relevant Information or 
arguments. 

(b) The Presenter, and then the student, present and question 
persons having knowledge of the incident, and offer docu- 
ments or other materials bearing on the case. The Presenter, 
the student, and all members of the Honor Board may 
question any person giving testimony. 

(c) The members of the Honor Board may ask the Presenter or 
the student any relevant questions. The members may also 
request any additional material or the appearance of other 
persons they deem appropriate. 

(d) The Presenter, and then the student, should make brief 
closing statements. 

(e) The Honor Board meets privately to discuss the case, and 
reaches a finding by a maiority vote. 

(f) The Honor Board will not conclude that a student has at- 
tempted or engaged in an act of academic dishonesty unless, 



after considering all the information before it, a majority of 
meml)ers believe that such a conclusion is supported by clear 
and convincing evidence If this is not the case, the Honor 
Board will dismiss the charge of academic dishonesty in favor 
of the student with a finding that an attempt or act of academic 
dishonesty "did not occur", or that it was "not proven", which- 
ever more accurately descrit}es the result of its investigation. 
The student would then be notified in wnting of the deosion to 
dismiss the charge. 

(g) II the Honor Board finds the student has engaged in an act 
of academic dishonesty, t)oth the Presenter and the student 
may recommend an appropnale penalty Pertinent docu- 
ments and other matenal may be offered. The Honor Board 
then meets privately to formulate a Recommendation. The 
recommendation of the Honor Board will be by a majority 
vote of its members 

(h) The Presiding Officer will provide the appropnate Dean with 
a written report of the Honor Board's findings and recom- 
mendations 

19. The Presiding Officer will attempt to ensure the following rules 
and points of order are observed: 

(a) The student may be assisted by an adviser, who may be an 
attorney. The role of an adviser will be limited to: 

I. Making brief opening and closing statements, as well as 
comments on an appropnate sanction. 

II. Suggesting relevant questions which the Presiding Offi- 
cer may direct to a witness. 

III. Providing confidential advice to the student. 

Even if accompanied by an adviser, the student must take 
an active and constructive role in the Honor Review. In 
particular, the student must fully cooperate with the Honor 
Board and respond to its inquiries without undue intrusion 
or comment by an adviser. 

In consideration of the limited role of an adviser and of the 
compelling interest of the university to expeditiously conclude the 
matter, the work of an Honor Board will not as a general practice, 
be delayed due to the unavailability of an adviser. 

(b) A tape recording of the Honor Review will be maintained. 

(c) Presence at an Honor Review lies within the judgment of the 
Presiding Officer. An Honor Review is a confidential inves- 
tigation. It requires a deliberative and candid atmosphere, 
free from distraction Accordingly, it is not open to the public 
or other "interested" persons However, at the student's 
request, the Presiding Officer will permit a student's parents 
or spouse to observe and may permit a limited number of 
additional observers The Presiding Officer may cause to be 
removed from the Honor Review any person, including the 
student or an adviser, who disrupts or impedes the mvestiga 
tion. or who fails to adhere to the rulings of the Presiding 
Officer. The Presiding Officer may direct that persons, other 
than the student and the Presenter, who are to t>e called upon 
to provide information, be excluded from the Honor Review 
except for that purpose. The members of the Honor Board 
may conduct pnvate delit)erations at such times and places 
as they deem proper 

(d) It is the responsibility of the [jerson desinng the presence of 
a witness before an Honor Board to ensure that the witness 
appears If necessary, a subpoena may be requested, in 
accordance with Part 32 (b) of the Code of Student Conduct. 
Because expenence has demonstrated that the actual ap- 
pearance of an individual is of greater value than a written 
statement, the latter is discouraged and should not be used 
unless the individual cannot or reasonably shouU not be 
expected to appear Any wntten statement must be dated, 
signed by the person making it. arxl witnessed by a university 
employee The worV of an Honor Board will not, as a general 
practice, be delayed due to the unavailatMlity of a witness

and shall not be applied. The Presiding Off leer will accept for 

consideration all matters which reasonable persons would 
accept as having probative value in the conduci of their 
affairs Unduly repetitious, irrelevant, or personally abusive 
matenal should be excluded. 

20. II the Honor Board finds that an attempt or act of academic 
dishonesty did occur, it shall recommend an appropriate sanction. 
The normal sanction shall be a grade of "XF" in the course, but the 
Honor Board may recommend a lesser or more severe sanction. 
Generally, acts involving advance planning, falsification of pa- 
pers, collaboration with others, or some actual or potential harm 
to other students will merit a severe sanction, i.e.. suspension or 
expulsion, even for a first offense. An attempt to commit an act 
shall be punished to the same extent as the consummated act. 

21. The finding of the Honor Board will be final and not subject to 
review. The Board's sanction recommendation is advisory to the 
Dean. If the Dean modifies the Honor Board's recommendation, 
the Dean will provide wnrten reasons to the Honor Board. 

Procedures: Action by tlie Dean, Instructor, 
Vice President, President 

22. If the Honor Board finds that an attempt or act of academic 
dishonesty did occur, then the Dean will provide the student a copy 
of the Board's findings and recommendations, by personal deliv- 
ery or certified mail. The student may submita wntten appeal to the 
Dean concerning the Honor Board's recommendation within ten 
( 1 0) days after the student receives the Board's findings and rec- 
ommendations. The student will be deemed to have received such 
findings and recommendations on the date of personal delivery, or 
if certified mail is used, on the date of delivery at the last address 
provided to the university by the student. 

23. If the Dean awards the student a grade, including the grade of 
"XF", or fashions an academic requirement, the decision consti- 
tutes the final and conclusive action of the university. If the Dean 
determines to suspend the student, then this will not be im.ple- 
mented until reviewed by the Vice President tor Student Affairs (or 
designee). If the Dean determines to expel the student, then this 
will not be implemented until reviewed by the President (or 
designee). If the Dean determines to take an action not otherwise 
described above (e.g. a community service assignment), then this 
will not be implemented until reviewed by the Director of Judicial 
Programs. In each instance, the review shall be limited to ensuring 
the sanction is not grossly disproportionate to the findings of the 
Honor Board. 

The Grade of "XF" 

24. The grade of "XF" is intended to denote a failure to accept and 
exhibit the fundamental value of academic honesty. The grade 
"XF" shall be recorded on the student's transcript with the notation 
"failure due to academic dishonesty." The grade "XF" shall be 
treated in the same way as an "F" for the purposes of Grade Point 
Average, course repeatability, and determination of academic 
standing. 

25. No student with an "XF" on the student's transcript shall be 
permitted to represent the university in any extracurricular activity, 
or run for or hold office in any student organization which is allowed 
to use university facilities, or which receives university funds. 

26. A student may file a written petition to the Student Honor Council 
to have the grade of "XF" removed and permanently replaced with 
the grade of "F". The decision to remove the grade of "XF" and 
replace it with an "F" shall rest in the discretion and judgment of a 
majority of a quorum of the Council, provided that: 

(a) at the time the petition is received, at least twelve months shall 
have elapsed since the grade of "XF " was imposed; and, 

(b) at the time the petition is received, the student shall have suc- 
cessfully completed a non-credit seminar on academic integ- 
rity, as administered by the Office of Judicial Programs; 

or, for the person no longer enrolled at the university, an 
equivalent activity as determined by the Office of Judicial 
Programs, and. 



(c| the Office of Judicial Programs certifies that to the best of 
its knowledge the student has not been found responsible for 
any other act of academic dishonesty or similar disciplinary 
offense at the University of Maryland or another institution. 

27. Prior to deciding a petition, the Honor Council will review the 
record of the case and consult with the Director of Judicial 
Programs. Generally, the grade of "XF" ought not to be removed 
if awarded for an act of academic dishonesty requinng significant 
premeditation. If the "XF" grade is removed, records of the incident 
may be voided in accordance with Parts 47 and 48 of the Code ol 
Student Conduct. The decision of the Honor Council shall not be 
subject to subsequent Honor Council review for four years, unless 
the Honor Council specifies an earlier date on which the petition 
may be reconsidered Honor Council determinations pertaining to 
the removal of the "XF" grade penalty may be appealed to the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs II the Vice President removes the 
grade of "XF " from the student's transcnpt, the Vice President shall 
provide wntten reasons to the Honor Council. 

The Student Honor Council 

28. There shall be a Student Honor Council. The Honor Council is 
composed of twenty-five (25) full-time students, normally ap- 
pointed in the spring for the following academic year, and who may 
each be reappointed for additional one year terms. 

29. The members of the Honor Council are appointed in the following 
manner: 

(a) The Deans of the Colleges of Agriculture: Arts and Humani- 
ties; Behavioral and Social Sciences; Business and Manage- 
ment: Computer. Mathematical and Physical Sciences; 
Education; Engineering; Human Ecology; Journalism: Life 
Sciences; Health and Human Performance; the Dean of the 
School of Architecture: and the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies will each appoint one undergraduate student. 

(b) The Dean of the Graduate School will appoint seven graduate 
students. 

(c) A committee consisting of the Vice President for Academic 
Affairs, the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Chair of the 
Graduate Student Association, and the President of the 
Student Government Association will appoint the remaining 
members. 

30. A member must be in high academic standing (a cumulative 
G.P.A. of at least 3.0) at the university and have no history of 
disciplinary, academic, or criminal misconduct. 

31. All council members are subject to the training and conduct re- 
quirements of Parts 24 and 25 of the Code of Student Conduct. 

32. The Student Honor Council has the following responsibilities 
and authority: 

(a) To develop bylaws subject to approval by the university for 
legal sufficiency and consistency with the requirements of this 
Code, and the Code of Student Conduct. 

(b) To designate from its members students to serve as Review 
Officers, Presenters, and members of Honor Boards as 
specified in this Code. Appointment to these responsibilities 
will generally rotate in accordance with the bylaws of the 
Honor Council. 

(c) To consider petitions for the removal of the grade of "XF" from 
university records in accordance with Part 26 of this Code. 

(d) To receive complaints or reports of academic dishonesty from 
any source. 

(e) To assist in the design and teaching of the non-credit seminar 
on academic integnty and moral development, as determined 
by the Director of Judicial Programs. 

(f) To advise and consult with faculty and administrative officers 
on matters pertaining to academic integrity at the university. 



52 Registration, Records, and Academic Regulations 



(g) To issue an annual report to the Campus Senate on academic 
integrity standards, policies, and procedures, including rec- 
ommendations for appropriate changes. 

33. The campus administration shall provide an appropriate facility. 
reserved for the primary use of the Honor Council, and suitable for 
the conduct of hearings. Clerical and secretarial assistance will 
also be provided. 

Future Self Governance 

34. Insofar as academic dishonesty is most immediately injurious to 
the student body, and because the student body is in a unique 
position to challenge and deter it, it is the intent of the university 
that ultimately this Code will evolve into one the provisions of 
which are marked by complete student administration. The Campus 
Senate shall review the operation of this Code during the 1 992-93 
academic year based in part on the annual reports of the Student 
Honor Council for the first three years of its operation. Considera- 
tion at that time should be given to introducing additional enforce- 
ment responsibilities and privileges characteristic of traditional 
honor systems at sister institutions, including the provision that 
only student members of Honor Boards may vote. It is expected 
that faculty participation on the Honor Boards will continue, since 
the faculty has an important interest in academic integrity, and 
since faculty members will have insights that should be consid- 
ered in the resolution of individual cases.

UNIVERSITY STUDIES PROGRAM 



GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Dr. Kathryn Mohrman 
1115 Hornbake Library. 454-6231 

The Purpose of General Education 

To fulfill the requirements for a baccalaureate degree at the University of 
Maryland at College Park, students must complete both a major course of 
study and a set of campus-wide general education requirements These 
requirements are intended to expose students to broad areas of historic 
and contemporary human thought and experience. General education 
permits a graduating student to make the claim that he or she is truly an 
"educated" person. 

In a world of rapid economic, social, and technological change, the 
importance of a broadly based education remains paramount. Important 
societal questions and problems demand answers based on the broad 
perspective afforded by general education. Participation in a democratic 
society requires more than the core training provided by the major field of 
study. It is general education which makes the university more than merely 
a job-training institution. General education requirements ensure that a 
wide range of abilities and knowledge is developed, and that students 
have the intellectual integration and awareness which will prepare them 
for the developments and changes they will experience in their personal, 
social, political, and professional lives. 

At the University of IVlaryland at College Park, the general education 
program has three major components: 

Fundamental Studies 

These courses are intended to establish the student's ability to 
participate in the discourse of the university through demonstrated 
mastery of written English and mathematics. These requirements 
ensure that every student will have the tools necessary for success 
in higher education, and in the world beyond. 

Distributive Studies 

These courses cover the broad areas of knowledge with which 
each student should be familiar. They serve as an introduction to 
the different kinds of knowledge and nature of scholarship m the 
humanities, physical and life sciences, mathematics, and social 
sciences. Students generally take distributive courses in the first 
two years of their coursework. 

Advanced Studies 

These courses continue the broadening experience of the Distribu- 
tive Studies courses, with the opportunity to cultivate higher-level 
critical thinking skills in the analysis of problems. They provide 
reflection upon contemporary problems in areas outside majors. 
Students take the advanced studies courses in their junior and 
senior years. 



The general education requirements represent a third of the total aca- 
demic work required for graduation and are designed to be spread 
throughout the student's four years of baccalaureate study. 

Statement on Applicability of The New CORE 
Program and The USP Program 

At the College Park campus, the Campus Senate and the Board of 
Regents have recently approved a new general education program. This 
program, called Core Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies (CORE), must be 
completed by all students entenng in fvlay 1 990 and thereafter with eight 
(8) or fewer credits from this or any other college. Students who enter and 
have completed nine (9) or more credits before fvlay 1 990 from this or any 
other college will complete their general education requirements under 
the University Studies Program (USP). They may, however, choose the 
new CORE program if they so desire. Each program is outlined below and 
lists of approved courses for each are provided. 

Statement on Statute of Limitation for GEP and GUR 
Programs 

Undergraduate students returning or transferring to the College Park 
campus after August 1987 will no longer have the option of completing 
general education requirements under the older General Education 
Program (GEP) or the General University Requirements (GUR). 

Thereafter, following any substantive change in general education re- 
quirements, undergraduate students returning or transferring to College 
Park after a separation of five continuous years must follow the require- 
ments in effect at the time of re-entry. Exceptions may be granted to those 
students who at the time of separation had completed 60% of general 
education requirements then in effect. 

Students from Ivlaryland public community colleges shall be treated as if 
registration dates were concurrent with enrollment at the University of 
Ivlaryland at College Park. Other exceptions to this policy may be ap- 
pealed to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies. 



PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS 

The CORE Liberal Arts and Science Studies Program 
(CORE) 

This program must be completed by all students entering in Ivlay 1 990 and 
thereafter with eight (8) or fewer credits from this or any other college. A 
course taken to satisfy college, major, and/or supporting area require- 
ments may also be used to satisfy CORE requirements if that course 
appears on the list of approved course for this program. Courses taken to 
satisfy CORE requirements may not be taken on a Pass-Fail basis. 



CORE (general education) replaces USP for students enrolling as of May 1990 with 8 or fewer credits.

THE COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE (AGRI) 

1114 Symons Hall, 454-6332 

Dean: Paul H. Mazzocchi (Acting) 

Today's agriculture is a highly complex and extremely efficient industry 
that involves supplies and services used in agricultural production, and 
the marketing, processing and distribution of products to meet consumers' 
needs and wants. The mission of the College of Agriculture includes 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. The college strives to provide 
an agricultural education that fits all the needs of today's advanced 
science of agriculture. 

The College of Agnculture offers educational programs with a broad 
cultural and scientific base. Instruction in the college includes the funda- 
mental sciences, and helps develop the foundation for its students' future 
roles by emphasizing the precise knowledge graduates must employ in 
the industrialized agriculture of today. Students are prepared for careers 
in agriculturally related sciences, technology and business. Course pro- 
grams 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 Agnculture: students with rural, suburban and 
urban backgrounds comprise the student body. Graduates of the College 
of Agriculture have an appropriate educational background for careers 
and continued learning after college in business, industry, production, 
teaching, research, extension, and many other professional fields. 

The original college of the University of Maryland at 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 in 1862. The College of Agriculture continues to grow and 
develop as part of the university system, providing education and re- 
search activities enabling us to use our environment and natural re- 
sources to best advantage while conserving basic resources for future 
generations. 

The College of Agriculture offers the following majors and programs of 
study: 

Agricultural Extension Education 

Agricultural and Resource Economics 

Agricultural Chemistry 

Agricultural Engineering 

Agriculture — General Curnculum 

Agronomy 

Animal Sciences 

Food Science Program 

Horticulture 

Institute of Applied Agnculture (two-year program) 

Natural Resources Management Program 

Combined Degree — College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine 

Advantage of Location and Facilities 

Educational opportunities in the College of Agnculture are enhanced by 
the proximity of several research units of the federal government Teach- 



ing and research activities in the college are conducted with the coopera- 
tion of scientists and professional people in government positions. Of 
particular interest are the Agricultural Research Center at Beltsville, the 
important National Agricultural Library there, and the US. Department ot 
Agriculture Headquarters in Washington, DC Related research latxjra- 
tories of the National Institutes of Health, military hospitals. National 
Aeronautics and Space Agency, and the National Bureau of Standards 
are also located in the vicinity of College Park. Interaction of faculty and 
students with personnel from these agencies is encouraged. 

Instruction in the basic biological and physical sciences, social sciences 
and engineering principles is conducted in well-designed classrooms and 
laboratories. The application of basic principles to practical situations is 
demonstrated for the student in numerous ways For example, modern 
greenhouses are available for teaching and research on a wide vanety of 
plants, plant pests, and crop cultural systems. Dairy and beef cattle and 
flocks of poultry are available for teaching and research purposes. 

In addition to on-campus facilities, 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 cooperating producers and processors of agncultural 
products are utilized by students interested in economics, teaching, 
engineering, and conservation, as they relate to agriculture, as well as by 
those concerned with biology or management of agncultural crops and 
animals. 

Requirements for Admission 

Admission requirements to the College of Agriculture are the same as 
those of the university. 

For students entenng the College of Agnculture it is recommended that 
their high school preparatory course include English. 4 units; mathemat- 
ics, 3 units: biological and physical sciences, 3 units: and history or social 
sciences, 2 units. Four units of mathematics should be elected by students 
who plan to major in agricultural engineenng or agncultural chemistry.

Honors 

An Honors Program is approved for majors in agricultural and resource 
economics. The objective of the Honors Program is to recognize superior 
scholarship and to provide opportunity for excellent students to broaden 
their perspective and to increase the depth of their studies. The programs 
in Honors are administered by departmental Honors committees. Stu- 
dents in the College of Agriculture who are in the top 20 percent of their 
class at the end of their first year may be considered for admission into the 
Honors Program. Of this group up to 50 percent may be admitted. 

Sophomores or first semester juniors will be considered upon application 
from those students in the upper 20 percent of their class. While applica- 
tion may be made until the student enters the sixth semester, eariy 
entrance into the program is recommended. Students admitted to the 
program enjoy certain academic privileges. 



Student Organizations 



Students find opportunity tor varied expression and growth in the several 
voluntary organizations sponsored by the College of Agriculture. These 
organizations are Agnculture and Resource Economics Club, Agronomy 
Club, American Society of Agricultural Engineers, Animal Husbandry 
Club. Collegiate 4-H Club, Collegiate Future Farmers of America. Forestry 
Club, Equestrian Association, Food Science Club, Horticultural Club. 
INAG Club, Poultry Science Club, Soil Conservation Society of Amen- 
caThe University of Maryland Student Chapter, and Veterinary Science 
Club. 

Alpha Zeta is a national agricultural honor fraternity. Members are chosen 
from students in the College of Agriculture who have attained the scholas- 
tic requirements and displayed leadership in agriculture. 

The Agricultural Student Council is made up of representatives from the 
various student organizations in the College of Agriculture. Its purpose Is 
to coordinate activities of these organizations and to promote work that is 
beneficial to the college. 

Research and Service Units 
The Agricultural Experiment Station 

The Maryland Agricultural Expenment Station, headquartered on the 
UMCP campus, is a state wide agency conducting research in laborato- 
nes at UMCP or UMES or at one of its nine field locations throughout 
Maryland. It was established in 1 888 to comply with the Hatch Act of 1 887 
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 individual and farm-related businesses and 
industry. The research is performed by faculty with the assistance of 
research assistants, technicians, graduate and undergraduate students. 

The objective of the Experiment 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. For example, improved techniques of waste 
utilization or disposal require an examination of soil-moisture-plant rela- 
tionships and plant-bird or animal-environment relationships as well as 
studies of the applications of engineering for producing or maintaining the 
optimal environment for biological systems. 

Genetic principles are studied and applied in the improvement of turf and 
ornamentals, vegetable crops, field crops, poultry, dairy cattle, and other 
animals. Similariy, pathological principles are of concern in the improve- 
ment of methods of identification, prevention and/or control of plant and 
animal diseases. Studies of biological, chemical and mechanical methods 
and improved chemical pest control in the field, forests, food processing 
chain and the home are continuous. 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. 

The socio-economics of changing agricultural systems in terms of farm 
policy and rural development is also a major research area. 

Cooperative Extension Service 

As part of the total university, the Cooperative Extension Service takes the 
University of Maryland to the people of Maryland, whereverthey 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. 
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 
agencies and private groups. 

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



64 School of Architecture 



The Cooperative Extension Service was authorized by Congress in 1 91 4 
under the Smith-Lever Act and Is funded by a three-way partnership 
Support comes from the federal government tor both 1 862 and 1 890 Land 
Grant Institutions; and from the state and all twenty-three counties and 
Baltimore City In Maryland. 

Off-campus faculty, located in each county and in Baltimore City, are the 
iront lines" that deliver university resources In ways people can use them 
effectively. These field faculty rely on campus-based Cooperative Exten- 
sion specialists at both UMCP and Uf^ES to provide up-to-date, meaning- 
ful information and for aid In planning and conducting relevant educational 
programs Many of the 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, In each county 
and In Baltimore City competent Extension agents conduct educational 
work In program areas consistent with the needs of the citizenry and as 
funds permit. Through these efforts, local people are assisted in finding 
solutions to their problems. 

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 audiences; (7) profitability of marine industries; (8) enhancement of 
community vitality. 

The Cooperative Extension Service works in close harmony and associa- 
tion with many groups and organizations such as 4-H and homemakers' 
clubs, farmers' groups and cooperatives, agribusiness firms, watermen's 
organizations, civic and social organizations, governmental agency per- 
sonnel, and elected officials, to multiply Its effects. In addition to work on 
farms and with agribusinesses, 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 
Nutntlon Education Program. Thousands of young people gain leadership 
knowledge and experience and are provided practical education Instruc- 
tion in 4-H clubs and other youth groups. The Service 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 
meetings, teaching institutes, workshops, and training conferences. 
Teaching events include tours, field days, and demonstrations. Short 
courses, workshops, and conferences in various fields of interest are 
conducted at UMCP and other locations throughout the state. Indirect 
communications Include circular letters, radio and television programs, 
newspaper articles and columns, articles in specialized publications, and 
exhibits to reach a statewide audience. 

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

whose members are active in professional practice or research. Many 
faculty members have distinguished themselves across the professional 
spectrum and represent different approaches to architectural design. 
Their individual areas of expertise include architectural design and theory, 
history, architectural archaeology, technology, urban design and plan- 
ning, and historic preservation. Visiting critics, lecturers, and the Kea Dis- 
tinguished Professor augment the faculty: together they provide students 
with the requisite exposure to contemporary realities of architectural 
design. 

The B.S. degree in architecture will qualify graduates to pursue a career 
in any of a number of fields, such as construction, real estate develop- 
ment, public administration, or histonc preservation, or to continue in 
graduate work in professional fields such as architecture, urban planning, 
or law.

The College of Arts and Humanities embraces a heterogeneous group of 
disciplines, all of which value the development of critical thinking, fluent 
expression in writing and speech, sensitivity to ethical and aesthetic 
standards, and a complex understanding of history and culture. Depart- 
ments and programs in Arts and Humanities, while they have strong 
individual identities, are also involved in interdisciplinary studies. Thus 
students will find, for example, courses in the Department of English that 
approach literature from political perspectives, courses in the Department 
of History that rely on feminist perspectives, courses in the Department of 
Art History that study Afncan cultures and so on.

opment Laboratory in the Department of Design, the campus literary 
magazine Calvert Review, a biweekly foreign and art film senes, a junior 
year abroad program in Nice, a year abroad program in Sheffield, and 
Honors programs in most departments There are also special programs 
in women's studies, comparative literature, and the history and philosophy 
of science. 

Preparation in the Arts and Humanities provides valuable background tor 
careers in a broad range of fields Students should be aware of the many 
eloquent testimonials from leaders of the nation's businesses, industry 
and government to the skills of oral presentation, wntten exposition,

philosophical, from the experimental to the theoretical. Integral to all the 
disciplines, however, is the development and application of problem 
solving skills, which in combination with other academic skills, enable 
students to think analytically and to communicate cleariy and persua- 
sively. Students interested in human behavior and in solving human and 
social problems will find many exciting opportunities through the programs

Entrance Requirements 



Admission to the College of Business and Management is on a competi- 
tive basis for undergraduates 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 
the required pre-business courses (i.e., freshman-sophomore core re- 
quirements), and meet the competitive cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) in effect for the academic year This GPA will always be greater 
than 2.3 (on 4.0 scale) ; however, for Fall 1 989— Spring 1 990 this competi- 
tive cumulative GPA was 3.0 The competitive GPA for academic year 
1990-91 will be determined in March 1990. In addition to all UMCP

Statement of Policy on 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 
conviction that the value derived from these advanced courses is mate- 
rially enhanced when based upon a sound foundation in the liberal arts. 

In adhering to this, it is the practice of the College of Business and 
Management to consider for transfer from a regionally accredited commu- 
nity college only the following courses in business administration : an 
introductory business course, business statistics, elementary accounting 
or business law. 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 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 trans- 
ferability. 

Summary of Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements 
(all curricula) 

At least 45 hours of the 1 20 semester hours of academic work required for 
graduation must be in business and management subjects. A minimum of 
fifty-seven hours of the required 120 hours must be in 300 or 400 level 
courses. These fifty-seven hours of upper level credits may not be

Statistics 

statistics consists of a body of methods for utilizing probability theory in 
decision-making processes. Important statistical activities ancillary to the 
decision-making 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 statistics, and data 
processing. Statistical methods, such as, sample survey techniques, are 
widely used in accounting, marketing, industrial management, and gov- 
ernment applications. An aptitude for applied mathematics and a desire 
to understand and apply scientific methods to significant problems are 
important prerequisites for the statistician.

The search for new knowledge is one of the most challenging activities of 
humankind. Universities are the key institutions in society where funda- 
mental research is emphasized. The College of Computer, Mathematical 
and Physical Sciences at College Park contributes very substantially and 
effectively to the research activities of the University of Maryland. 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 serves both students who continue as professionals in their 
area of specialization, either immediately upon graduation or after post- 
graduate studies, and those who use their college education as prepara- 
tory to careers or studies in other areas. The focused specialist as well as 
the broad "Renaissance person " can be accommodated. Many research 
programs include undergraduates either as paid student helpers or in 
forms of research participation. Students in departmental Honors Pro- 
grams particularly are 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 isdevoted to serving 
students majoring in disciplines outside of the college. Some of this 
teaching effort is directed toward 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 college is strongly committed to making studies in the sciences 
available to all regardless of their background. In particular, the college is 
actively pursuing an affirmative action program to rectify the present 
underrepresentation of women and minorities in these fields. There are 
in fact many career opportunities for women and members of minonties 
in the fields represented by the college.

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (EDUC) 

Benjamin Building, 454-201 1 

Dean: Dale Scannell 

Office of Student Services: 454-2017 

The College of Education is a professional college committed to advanc- 
ing the science and art of education including the practices and processes 
which occur from infancy through adulthood in both school and non- 
school settings. The college mission is to provide preparation for current 
and future teachers, counselors, administrators, educational specialists, 
and other related educational personnel, and to create and disseminate 
the knowledge needed by professionals and policy makers in education 
and related fields. 

The college is organized into seven departments, three of which offer 
undergraduate majors in Teacher Education: the Department of Curncu- 
lum and Instruction which offers early childhood, elementary, and secon- 
dary education programs; the Department of industnal. Technological, 
and Occupational Education; and the Department of Special Education. 
Admission to the teacher education programs in the above-mentioned 
departments is selective. See admission requirements tjelow. The De- 
partment of Industrial. Technological, and Occupational Education also 
offers an Industnal Technology major leading to a career in industry. 

The professional sequences in the teacher education program are open 
only to students who have been admitted to a Teacher Education Major. 
Students with other majors who have an interest in the area of education 



may wish to enroll in a variety of courses offered by the college that deal 
witln schooling, human development, learning styles and techniques, and 
interaction processes. 

In carrying out its mission, the college is committed to a society which is 
open to and supportive of the educational aspirations of the widest 
population of learners and to continuous research and evaluation in 
relation to teaching and learning in a multicultural, high technology 
society. At times, students may be invited to actively participate with 
graduate students and faculty members in research undertakings and 
evaluation processes Students also make use of the micro-teaching 
laboratory, the education technology and computer laboratory, and the 
curriculum laboratory. 

In addition to the University Studies program, education majors have the 
opportunity to complete 45 to 55 credit hours of work in the arts, sciences 
and/or humanities. In the teacher education courses, students develop 
professional behaviors through active expenences in the college class- 
room and participate in exploring, learning and practicing with children 
and teachers in classrooms in the community. The capstone expenence 
of student teaching bnngs classroom theory and practice together into a 
personal set of professionally appropnate skills and processes. 

Admission to Teacher Education 

Applicants to the University of Maryland who have declared an interest in 
education are admitted to the university by the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions as pre-education majors. University of Maryland undergradu- 
ates can declare themselves pre-education majors at any time although 
it is recommended that this choice be made pnor to completion of 45 credit 
hours. Pre-education majors receive advising by staff of their particular 
department regarding admission to the Teacher Education Program in the 
College of Education. All teacher education pre-majors must apjjly for 
admission to, and be admitted as students by, the College of Education 
in order to pursue the professional teacher education degree program. 

For admission into a teacher education program, a student must (1) 
complete the USP Fundamental Studies requirements (six credits): (2) 
earn forty-five semester hours with an overall cumulative grade point 
average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (granted by UMCP or some other 
institution) in all coursework prior to enrollment in EDHD 300; and (3) have 
a satisfactory score on the language and mathematics segments of the 
California Achievement Test Level 20. Transfer students with more than 
45 semester hours of previously earned credit and post-Bachelor's 
degree students must apply for admission to the college as early as 
possible. Admission application forms are available in Room 1210 of the 
Benjamin Building. Only those who are admitted are able to enroll in the 
professional education sequence. 

A student who initially fails to meet the admission critena may apply to the 
college whenever the criteria for admission are met. with the stipulation, 
however, that a student may take the CAT test a maximum of three times. 
A plan for becoming eligible for admission will be developed by the student 
and the department advisor. A Teacher Education Appeals Board will 
review appeals from students who do not meet the admission, advance- 
ment or retention cntena. 

Criteria for admission to the Teacher Education program apply to any 
teacher preparation program offered by the University of Maryland Thus, 
students desiring a major in agnculture and extension education or a 
major in health or physical education should apply to the College of 
Education for admission to the professional program in Teacher Educa- 
tion. Students who are not enrolled in the College of Education Ixit wfw. 
through an established cooperative program with another college are 
preparing to teach, must meet all admission, scholastic and cumcular 
requirements of the College of Education. The professional education 
courses are restricted to degree-seeking majors. 



Student Teaching 



Once the student has been admitted into the professional program, 
required courses must be completed in an appropnate sequence leading 
to the required student teaching expenence. Pnor to assignment to 
student teaching all students in teacher preparation programs must (1) 
have maintained an overall grade point average of at least 2 5 with a 
minimum grade of C in every course required for the major: (2) have 
satisfactonly completed all other required course work in their program; (3) 
apply for student teaching to the Office of Latxjratory Experiences one 
semester in advance; (4) be recommended by their department; ar>d (5) 
have on file favorable ratings from pnor supervised expenences m sctKX>l 
settings including evaluations of the EDHD 300 field expenences. 



College of Education 77 



All students participating in any field experience in education are required 
to undergo a cnminai background check. This is necessary because the 
counties in which students are placed tor tield experiences require such 
checks tor their professional staff. The background check requires that 
students submit identification forms with linger prints. 

A certificate indicating freedom from tuberculosis and proof of immuniza- 
tion for measles (rubella) is also required. This may be obtained from a 
private physician, a health department, or the campus Health Center. 

The student teaching experience is for most students the final experience 
in a professional program preparing them for the beginning teaching 
years. This culminating phase of the teacher education program provides 
the prospective teacher with the opportunity to integrate theory and 
practice in a comprehensive, reality-based, experience. Student teaching 
placements, as well as all other field experiences, are arranged by the 
Office of Laboratory Expenences Prior to receiving a student teaching 
placement, prospective student teachers must have been admitted to 
Teacher Education and have completed requirements as described in the 
previous section. In programs requiring more than one student teaching 
placement, the first placement must be satisfactorily completed before the 
student begins the succeeding placement. 

Most student teaching placements and accompanying seminars are 
arranged in the Teacher Education Centers and other collaborative field 
sites jointly administered by the College of Education and participating 
school systems. The student teaching semester is a full-time commitment 
and interference with this commitment because of employment or course- 
work is not permitted. Living arrangements, including transportation for 
the student teaching assignments, are considered the responsibility of the 
student. Students should contact the Office of Laboratory Expenences if 
there are any questions regarding this policy. 

Graduation Requirements 

The degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science are conferred by 
the College of Education. The determination of which degree is conferred 
is dependent upon the amount of liberal arts study included in a particular 
degree program, f^inimum requirements for graduation are 1 20 semester 
hours. Specific departmental program requirements for more than the 
minimum must be fulfilled. 

In addition to the University Studies program requirements and the 
specific requirements for each curriculum, the college requires that all 
majors complete EDHD 300, EDPA 301 . and three semester hours of an 
approved speech course. A grade of C or better is required in all pre- 
professional and professional coursework required for the major. An 
overall grade point average of 2.5 must be maintained after admission to 
Teacher Education. A grade of S is required in student teaching. 

Exceptions to curricular requirements and rules of the College of Educa- 
tion must be recommended by the student's advisor and department 
chairpjerson and approved by the dean. 

Accreditation and Certification 

All bachelor-degree teacher preparation programs are accredited by the 
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and have been 
approved by the Office of Certification and Accreditation of the f^^aryland 
State Department of Education using standards of the National Associa- 
tion of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification. Accredita- 
tion provides for reciprocal certification with other states that recognize 
national accreditation. 

The Maryland State Department of Education issues certificates to teach 
in the public schools of the state. In addition to graduation from an 
approved program, the Maryland State Department of Education requires 
satisfactory scores on the National Teacher Exam (NTE) for certification. 
At the time of graduation, the college informs the Maryland State Depart- 
ment of Education of the graduate's eligibility for certification. 

Special Resources and Opportunities 

The College of Education offers many special resources and facilities to 
students, faculty, and the community. The Center for Educational Re- 
search and Development, Institute for the Study of Exceptional Children 
and Youth, the Music Educators National Conference Histoncal Center, 
the Reading Center and the Center of Rehabilitation and Manpower 
Services all are part of the College of Education. In addition, undergradu- 



ate education and pre-education majors are likely to find the following 
resources particularly useful: 

The Student Services Office 

1210 Benjamin Building, 454-2017 

The Student Services Office provides academic advising support for pre- 
education and education students during admission, orientation, registra- 
tion, graduation and certification. At other times, pre-education majors

academic advising through their departments. 

The Office of Laboratory Experiences 

1209 Benjamin Building, 454-2029 

The Office of Laboratory Experiences (OLE) is the liaison unit between the 
college and the public school systems that serve as laboratories for the 
preparation of teachers. While the primary role of the OLE is to provide 
teacher education students with sites for internships, student teaching 
and pre-student teaching classroom expenence, the office also operates 
in-service programs for teachers with the schools and facilitates research 
and staff development activities in the schools. Placement coordinators 
are available in the OLE to answer questions, provide orientation pro- 
grams and arrange all field expenence placements 

University Credentials Service, Career Development Center

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING (ENGR) 

1131 Engineenng Classroom Building. 454-2421 

Dean: George E. Dieter 

Undergraduate Student Affairs: 454-2421 

Cooperative Engineering Education: 454-5191 

Center for Minonties in Science and Engineering: 454-7219 

The mission of the College of Engineering is to provide quality engineering 
education, with sufficient scope to include both fundamental and special- 
ized engineering training, so that graduates are prepared to serve the 
current and emerging needs of society. Just as the boundary between the 
functions of engineers and applied scientists or mathematicians is becom- 
ing less distinct, the various branches of engineering increasingly interact 
as technical problems become more sophisticated and require interdisci- 
plinary approaches to their solutions. In addition to its teaching role, the 
college feels a related responsibility to conduct strong research programs 
that contribute to the advancement of knowledge. 

Engineers also occupy an intermediary position between scientists and 
the public because, in addition to understanding scientific principles, they 
are concerned with the timing, economics, and values that define the use 
and application of those principles With this in mind the college fosters a 
close partnership with industry and government, and also reaches out to 
IXJth the campus community and the community at large with its services. 

Entrance Requirements 

Preparation for pursuing an engineering degree 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 incoming students may be deficient in their high 
school preparation. Therefore, students interested in studying engineer- 
ing should enroll in the appropnate academic program in high school This 
course of study should include 3-1/2 to 4 years of college preparatory 
mathematics (including algebra, geometry, tngonometry. and pre-calcu- 
lus mathematics). In addition, students should complete one year each of 
physics and chemistry. 



Admission to the College of Engineering is competitive (or both freshmen 
and transfer students. Applicants who have designated a major within the 
College of Engineenng will be selected for admission on the basis of 
academic promise and available space. Because of space limitations, the 
College of Engineenng may not be able to offer admission to all qualified 
applicants. The College Park campus urges early application. Applicants 
admissible to the university but not to the college will be offered admission 
to pre-engineering. A pre-engineering major does not assure eventual 
admission to the College of Engineering. For consideration o( appeals for 
admission contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions Minority and 
women students are encouraged to apply for admission. 

Freshmen 

Freshmen applicants who have designated a major offered within the 
College of Engineering will be selected tor admission directly to the 
college on the basis of SAT scores and GPA earned in academic sub|ects 
during the 9th. 10th. and 1 1th grades. A minimum combined SAT score 
of 1100 (with at least 580 on the mathematics portion) and a 3.0 
cumulative GPA will be required for all majors except Aerospace and 
Electrical Engineering. Direct admission into Aerospace Engineering 
requires a combined SAT score of 1100 (with at least 580 on the 
mathematics portion) and a 3.5 cumulative GPA. Direct admission to 
Electrical Engineering requires a combined SAT score of 1250 (with at 
least 650 on the mathematics portion) and a 3.5 cumulative GPA. 

Academically talented freshmen are admitted directly to the college. We 
define these as: 1 ) National Merit and National Achievement Finalists and 
Semifinalists; 2) Maryland Distinguished Scholar Finalists; 3) Francis 
Scoti Key or Banneker Scholars ; and 4) students having participated in the 
"Study in Engineering " and the "Minonty Scholars in Computer Science 
and Engineering" summer programs.

Graduation Requirements 

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 describ- 
ing 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. 

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

3. Related technical courses — engineering sciences andother 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 englneenng 
curriculum, as classified below, form a sequential and develop- 
mental pattern in subject matter. In this respect, curncula in 
engineering may differ from curricula in other colleges. Some 
regulations which are generally applicable to all students may need 
clarification for purposes of orderly administration among engi- 
neering students (see the Academic Regulations section of this 
catalog). Moreover, the College of Engineering establishes poli- 
cies which supplement the university regulations. 

College Regulations 

1 . The responsibility for proper registration and for satisfying stated 
prerequisites for any course must rest with the studentas 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 
highest priority; and it Is strongly recommended that every engi- 
neering student register for mathematics and chemistry or mathe- 
matics and physics each semester until the student has fully 
satisfied requirements 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 (2.0) and a 
grade of C or better in all engineering courses (courses with an EN 
prefix). Responsibility for knowing and meeting all graduation 
requirements in any curriculum rests with the student. 

4. All students are required to complete a number of general educa- 
tion courses and must follow the university's requirements regard- 
ing completion of the University Studies Program. Consult the Aca- 
demic Regulations section of this catalog for additional informa- 
tion. Engineering students who began college level work (either at 
the University of Maryland or at other institutions) during the Fall 
1989 semester or later are required to complete a junior level 
English course (with the exception of Agricultural Engineering 



students) regardless of their performance in Freshmen English 
classes. This represents a college policy, not a university-wide 
pwlicy. Students beginning college-level work in the Fall 1989 
semester must also plan their University Studies Program courses 
to reflect depth as well as breadth They should plan to take at least 
two courses (preferably a lower level and upper level course) which 
follow a theme area or provide more than simply introductory level 
study in one general studies department of their choice. 
5. All degree programs in the College of Engineering require a mini- 
mum of 1 20 credits plus satisfaction of all department, college, and 
University 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. 

Curricula for the various engineering 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 
students (whether at Maryland or at other engineering schools nation- 
wide) 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 variety of reasons. However, students should 
seek competent advising in order to ensure that courses are taken In the 
proper sequence. 

All students are urged to speak to a counselor in the College of Engineer- 
ing Student Affairs Office at least two semesters before graduation to 
review their academic progress and discuss final graduation require- 
ments.

The Freshman-Sophomore Years 

The freshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to lay a 
strong foundation In mathematics, physical sciences, and the engineering 
sciences 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 maximum flexibility in choosing a specific engineering specializa- 
tion. 



Engineering Sciences 



Engineering Science courses represent a common core of basic material 
offered to students of several different departments. All freshman and 
sophomore students of engineering are required to take ENES 101 and 
ENES 110. Other ENES courses, 220, 221, 230, and 240, are specified 



80 College of Engineering 



by the different departments or taken by the student as electlves. The 
responsibility for teaching the engineering science courses is divided 
among the Chemical /Nuclear, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineer- 
ing departments. In addition to the core courses noted above, several 
courses of general interest to engineering or non-engineering students 
have been given ENES designations. See the List of Approved Courses 
in this catalog for further descriptions of these courses. 

Freshman Curriculum 

All freshmen in the College of Engineering are required to complete the 
following basic curriculum regardless of w^helher the student plans to 
proceed through one of the designated baccalaureate degree programs 
or follow any of the multidisciplinary nondesignated degree curricula that 
are sponsored by the college.

Entering freshmen math placements are determined by performance on 
math placement exams. Placement in MATH 002 or MATH 1 1 5 will delay 
by a semester eligibility to take certain engineering courses. 

Sophomore Year 

During the sophomore year the student selects a sponsoring academic 
department (Aerospace, Agricultural, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Fire 
Protection, Mechanical, or Nuclear Engineering) and this department 
assumes the responsibility for the student's academic guidance, counsel- 
ing, and program planning from that point 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. 

Dual Degree Program 

The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative arrangement between the 
College of Engineering and selected liberal arts colleges which allows 
students to earn undergraduate degrees from both institutions 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 
semester hours) and the College of Engineering at the University of 
Maryland for approximately two academic years (minimum hours re- 
quireddetermined individuallyapproximately sixty semester hours). 

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 University, 
Columbia Union College, Coppin State College, Frostburg State Univer- 
sity, Morgan State University. College of Notre Dame of Maryland. St 
Marys College of Maryland, Salisbury State University, Towson State 
University, Western Maryland College, Trinity College, and Washington 
College. Also participating in the program are Kentucky State University. 
King College in Tennessee, Shippensburg State University in Pennsylva- 
nia, and Xavier University in Louisiana. 

Dual Degree Program in Engineering and German 

As the nation increases its global perspective, the College of Engineering 
recognizes its responsibilities to promote technological and cultural devel- 
opment among students. To that end, the College of Engineering has 
established a formal Dual Degree Program in Engineering and German 
The aim of this program is to educate future engineers to use communi- 
cation skills in German and possess cultural literacy skills which are 
essential to the individual wori<ing within a global market. 



Students may participate in the Dual Degree Program in Engineering and 

German with no prior knowledge of German. Students complete the 
requirements lor two degrees simunltaneously. The program will take a 
minimum of five years to complete and students will earn two baccalau- 
reate degrees, one in engineering and the other in German. As part of the 
program, students will spend a semester in Germany in intensive study at 
the Goethe Institute and in an internship with a German engineenng 
company. 

For further information atxjut this program, students should contact the 
Engineering Student Affairs Office (454-2421) or the Department of 
German and Slavic Languages and Literature. 454-4301. 

Engineering Transfer Programs 

Most of the community colleges in Maryland 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 Engineenng Transfer Programs in the 
catalogs of the sponsoring institutions. The various associate degree 
programs in technology do not provide the preparation and transferatxlity 
into the professional degree curricula as the designated transfer pro- 
grams. A maximum of one-half of the degree credits (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 the schools participating 
in the engineering transfer program. Students should investigate the 
feasibility of completing these courses in summer school at the University 
of Maryland before starting their junior coursework in the fall semester. 

Financial Assistance 

The College of Engineering awards some ment-based scholarships. 
These awards are designated primarily for juniors and seniors in the 
college. Students must submit an application and all supporting docu- 
ments by February 1 5 in order to be considered for scholarship assistance 
for the ensuing year. For additional information, contact the Student 
Affairs Office, 1 131 Engineering Classroom Building, 454-2421.

COLLEGE OF HUMAN ECOLOGY (HUEC) 

1100 Marie Mount Hall, 454-2136 

Dean: Dr. Laura S. Sims 

Assistant Dean for Student Affairs: Paoletti (Acting) 

Human ecology can be described as the way people relate to the 
environment in which they live and make decisions. The study of human 
ecology applies scientific methods to learn how people interact with their 
surroundings and how they make choices to satisfy basic human needs: 
food, clothing, shelter, and interpersonal relationships. Human ecology 
also examines the workplace, and the delivery of human services. Within 
the unifying framework of human ecology are several specialized disci- 
plines, each of which has a direct impact on the quality of life of the future. 

With its mission of promoting and enhancing quality of life, the college 
trains professionals who will be able to assist people to function effectively 
in complex and changing circumstances. Human ecology students have 
numerous career choices; some will be nutritionists, consumer econo- 
mists, marriage and family counselors, textile researchers, fashion mer- 
chandisers, food scientists. ..and some will become experts in new and 
undreamed-of fields. 

Areas of study leading to a major in the College of Human Ecology are 
organized into three departments: Family and Community Development 
(FMCD), Human Nutrition and Food Systems (HNFS), and Textiles and 
Consumer Economics (TXCE). 

Within this interdisciplinary professional college, students are offered a 
balance of laboratory, practical and field experiences. In each depart- 
ment, students are encouraged toward innovative discovery, individual 
achievement and creative applications of knowledge to the social and 
physical systems In which we function. A student honor society, a minority 
student group, and the Dean's Ambassador-Scholars offer additional 
opportunities for student Involvement within the college. 

Faculty members have distinguished themselves in professional practice, 
teaching and research; they are augmented by visiting professors and 
lecturers whose individual areas of expertise provide students a broad 
exposure to the issues facing individuals and systems in contemporary 
society 

Admission 

All students desiring to enroll in the College of Human Ecology must apply 
to the Director of Admissions of the University of Maryland-College Park.

Curricula 

A student may elect one of the following sequences, or a combination of 
curricula: experimental foods, dietetics, human nutntlon and foods, food- 
service administration, family studies, apparel design, textile marketing/ 
fashion merchandising, textile science, or consumer economics. 

All students in the College of Human Ecology, in addition to meeting the

Located )ust nine miles from the nation's capital and 30 miles from the 
bustling commercial port of Baltimore, the College of Journalism at the 
University of Maryland is one of only six comprehensive journalism 
schools in the 1 states stretching from (slew York to Virginia — the nation's 
most populous region. But the college has a lot more than geography 
going for it. In a study by the Gannett Center for Media Studies at Columbia 
University, the college recently was designated one of "Eleven Exemplary 
Journalism Schools" nationwide: those that surpass others in cntena 
including teaching, research, facilities and job placement 

Founded in 1947. the college has been accredited for close to three 
decades by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass 
Communication Since it is within easy reach of the offices of Washington 
and Baltimore newspapers and the Washington bureaus of news organi- 
zations such as The New York Times, the Associated Press and the mapr 
networks, it is an Ideal place for the study of journalism and mass 
communication Students have internship opportunities at a vanety of

media, non-protit, government and international agencies. Talented ad- 
junct faculty members are also tapped from these organizations to 
enhance curriculum offerings 

After successful completion of a basic writing and editing skills senes, 
majors are provided the following sequences in which to focus their 
remaining journalism curriculum: News-Editorial, Public Relations, Broad- 
cast News, Advertising. Within the News-Editorial Sequence, emphases 
are provided in the areas of News, Magazine, Photojournalism. Literary, 
Journalism and Science Communication. 

Entrance Requirements 
Freshman Admission 

A small number of academically talented freshmen are admitted directly 
to the college, but most students apply after completing 28 credits. For 
direct admission as freshmen, students must be either recipients of 
university scholarships, or have earned both a minimum of 1 .200 on the 
SAT examination (with a minimum of 550 in the verbal section) and a 3.0 
(on a 4.0 scale! academic grade point average in high school. 

Upperclass Admission 

The majority of students are admitted after having earned 28 credits with 
a minimum designated grade point average on all previous college level 
work. Of those credits, a "C" or better must have been earned in Freshman 
English. Students also must demonstrate English grammar skills compe- 
tency by either passing the "Test of Language Skills" or the "Test of 
Standard Written English" or have earned at least a score of 22 on the 
Amencan College Testing Program (ACT) English usage subsection. 
These criteria entitle the applicant to "Provisional" journalism major status. 
Students have two semesters to become full majors by earning at least a 
"C" in Writing for the Mass Media (JOUR 201) together with maintaining 
the GPA set for admission which varies from time to time. 

Pre-Journalism 

Students not meeting the above criteria yet who are willing to work toward 
the admissions standards are permitted to register for "Pre-Journalism" 
status. "Pre-Journalism" is not a major but a program, and this status does 
not assure eventual admission to the college. 

Degrees 

The College of Journalism offers the B.S.. M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. At the 
undergraduate level, students are required to specialize in one of the four 
sequences offered. All diplomas are in Journalism. 

Graduation Requirements 

Students are required to earn a minimum of 121 credits. Accrediting 
regulations require three-fourths of a student's coursework (a minimum of 
90 credits) to be in areas other than mass communication (such as radio- 
television-film or speech) or journalism. The required public speaking 
course is exempt from this regulation. A grade of "C" or better must be 
earned in all journalism courses for which JOUR 201 . Writing for the Mass 
Media serves as a prerequisite. 

Students are also required to demonstrate abstract thinking skills. As a 
measure, majors are offered either a language or mathematics option. 
Language skills must be demonstrated by taking coursework through the

The Major 

Aerospace engineering is concerned with the physical understanding, 
related analyses, and creative processes required to design aerospace 
vehicles operating within and beyond planetary atmospheres. Such 
vehicles range from helicopters and other vertical takeoff 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 commercial 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 vehicle type poses its own 
special research, analysis and design problems, each can be addressed 
by a common set of technical specialties or disciplines. 

These include aerodynamics, the study of how airflow produces effects on 
temperature, forces, and moments: flight dynamics, the study of the 
motion and flight path of vehicles: flight structures, the study of the 
mechanical behavior of materials, stresses and strains, deflection, and 
vibration: flight propulsion, the study of the physical fundamentals of how 
engines work: and the synthesis of all these principles into one system 
with a specific application such as a complete transport aircraft, a missile. 
or a space vehicle through the discipline of aerospace vehicle design. 

The facilities of the department Include several subsonic wind tunnels with 
sections ranging from a few inches up to the Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel 
with a 7.75 by 1 1 foot cross section which is the best of Its class located 
at any university. There is a supersonic tunnel, equipment for the static 
and dynamic testing of structural components, and a flight simulator. The 
Center for Rotorcraft Education and Research (CRER) has established 
some unique experimental facilities to test helicopter models in simulated 
environments, including an automated model rig and computer-controlled 
vacuum chamber The Composite Research Laboratory (CORE) has the 
facilities necessary to the manufactunng. testing and inspection of com- 
posite materials and structures, including an autoclave, an x-ray machine, 
and a 220 Kip Uniaxial test machine with hydraulic gnps The depart- 
ment's computing facilities include microcomputers. Sun workstations, 
and terminals. There Is network access to many minicomputers, the 
campus mainframes, and several supercomputing centers.

The Afro-American Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary Bachelor 
of Arts degree in the study of the life and history of African Americans. The 
curriculum emphasizes the historical development of African American 
social, political and economic institutions, while it prepares students to 
apply analytic, social science skills in the creation of solutions to the 
pressing socio-economic problems confronting African Amencan com- 
munities. 

Two program options lead to the Bachelor of Arts degree Both require a 
twelve-credit core of course work that concentrates on Afro-American 
history and culture. 



The general concentration provides a broad cultural and historical per- 
spective It requires 18 additional credit hours in one or more specialty 
areas within Afro-American Studies such as history, literature, govern- 
ment and politics, sociology or anthropology, as well as departmental 
seminars and a thesis. 

The public policy concentration provides in-depth training lor problem 
solving in minority communities It requires 21 additional credit hours in 
analytic methods, such as economics and statistics, 9 credit hours of 
electives in a policy area (with departmental approval) and an internship 
or a thesis or a departmental seminar. Substantive areas of study include 
the family, criminal justice, employment, health care, discrimination, and 
urban development

Agriculture is a complex scientific field, encompassing all other scientific 
and professional fields. However, majoring in Agricultural Sciences does 
not require an agricultural background. Students in this major have 
backgrounds as varied as is the field itself. The Agricultural Sciences 
program is designed for students who are interested in a broad education 
in the field of agnculture. It is ideal for students who would like to survey 
agriculture"B&tore specializing, and for those who prefer to design their 
own specialized programs, such as International Agnculture or Agricul- 
tural Journalism. To supplement their classroom work, students in this 
major are encouraged to obtain summer positions that will provide 
technical laboratory or field experience in their chosen area. Advising is 
mandatory.

A degree in agricultural and extension education may lead to career 
opportunities in educational and developmental programs, public service, 
business and industry, communications, research, or college teaching. 

The program prepares individuals to teach agriculture at the secondary or 
postsecondary levels. It also prepares individuals to enter community 
development and other agriculturally related careers which emphasize 
working with people. Students preparing to become teachers of agricul- 
ture, including horticulture, agribusiness and other agriculturally related 
subjects, should have had appropriate experience with the kind of 
agriculture they plan to teach or should arrange to secure that experience 
during summers while in college. Advising is mandatory. 

Students in the agncultural education curriculum are expected to partici- 
pate in the Collegiate FFA Chapter for developing skills necessary for 
advising FFA groups. Students may major in preagricultural education 
and choose a second major until they complete a minimum of 56 credits. 
Then they may apply for the admission to the teacher education program 
in agricultural education. Contact the Teacher Education Coordinator in 
AEED for application forms and procedures.

The Major 

Agronomy instruction combines the principles of basic sciences with a 
thorough understanding of plants and soils. This amalgamation of basic 
and applied sciences provides the opportunity for careers involved in 
conserving soil and water resources, improving environmental quality. 
increasing crop production to meet the global need for food, and beauti- 
fying and conserving the urban landscape using turfgrass. 

The agronomy curncula 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. Graduates with a bachelor's degree are employed by private 
corporations as golf course managers, seed, fertilizer, chemical, and farm 
equipment company representatives, or by county, state, or federal 
government as agronomists or extension agents. Students completing 
graduate programs are prepared for research, teaching, and manage- 
ment positions with industry, international agencies, or federal and state 
government. 

Additional information on opportunities in agronomy and available schol- 
arships may be obtained by writing to the Department of Agronomy. 
Advising is mandatory.

Emeriti: Bode 

The Major 

American Studies offers an interdisciplinary approacfi to the study of 
American culture and society, past and present, with special attention to 
the ways in which Americans, in different historical or social contexts, 
make sense of their expenence. Emphasizing analysis and synthesis of 
diverse cultural products, the major provides valuable preparation for 
graduate training in the professions as well as business, government and 
museum work. Undergraduate majors, with the help of faculty advisors, 
design a program that includes courses offered by the Amencan 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 
(e.g., Afro-American studies, women's studies, ethnic studies, compara- 
tive cultures, popular culture, urban and environmental studies, and so 
forth). 

Requirements for Major 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

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 
AMST courses, with the remaining twenty-four in two twelve-hour core 
areas outside the regular AMST departmental offerings. 

No grade lower than a C may be applied toward the major. The department 
recommends that students fulfill the college's history requirement with an 
American history course, particularly if Amencan 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 whting and 
placed in the student's file. 

Distribution of the 45 hours: 

AMST Courses (21 hours required) 

1. AMST 201/lntroduction to American Studies 1 (3): required of 
majors. 

2. AMST 203/Popular Culture in America; AMST 205/Material As- 
pects of American Life: AMST 207/Contemporary American Cul- 
tures: three (3) hours minimum from this group, six (6) hours 
maximum may be applied toward the 21 -hour AMST requirement. 

3. AMST 330/Critics of American Culture (3): required of majors. 

4. AMST 418/ Cultural Themes in America; AMST 426/Culture and 
the Arts in America: AMST 428/American Cultural Eras; AMST

American Society: majors will take six to nine hours (depending 
upon number of hours taken at 200 level). No more than 6 hours of 
a repeatable number may be applied to the major. 
■"Students should take AMST 201 before taking any other AMST 
courses and will complete 330 before taking 400 level courses. 

5. AMST 450/Seminar in American Studies (3): required of majors. 

Core Areas Outside American Studies (24 hours required) 

Majors will choose two outside core areas of twelve hours each. At least 
one of the cores must be traditionally associated with Amencan Studies 
and the other core may be thematic. Upon entenng the major, students 
must develop a plan of study for the core areas in consultation with an 
advisor: this plan will be kept in the student's file. All cores must be 
approved by an advisor in writing.

The Major 

Anthropology has been defined as "the study ot humanity" because it is the 
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 hu- 
mans — differences in their physical characteristics as well as their cus- 
toms, behavior, and attitudes Since children learn their culture from the 
preceeding 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 increasingly clear that a strong background in anthropology is definite 
asset in preparing for a variety of jobs in a number of fields ranging from 
business to the line arts Whether one goes on to a Master's or a Ph.D. — 
striving to advance the frontiers of knowledge concerning our species and 
the cultural processor combines the anthropology B A with other specific 
knowledge — working, for example as a city planner, development con- 
sultant, or program evaluator— anthropology at UMCP offers a solid and 
rigorous background for a variety of career options. 

Academic Programs and Departmental Facilities 

The Anthropology Department offers beginning and advanced course- 
work in the four principal subdivisions of the discipline: ethnology (also 
known as cultural anthropology), archaeology, physical anthropology, 
and linguistics. Within each area, the department offers some degree of 
specialization and provides a variety of opportunities for research and 
independent study within the curriculum. Laboratory courses are offered 
in physical anthropology, archaeology, and anthropological methods; 
field schools are offered in archaeology and ethnography. The interrela- 
tionship of all branches of anthropology is emphasized. 

The undergraduate curriculum is closely tied to the department's Master 
in Applied Anthropology (MAA) program; accordingly, preparation for 
non-academic employment upon graduation is a primary educational 
goal of the Department's undergraduate coursework and internship & 
research components. 

Courses in these subdivisions may be used to fulfill the minor or 'support- 
ing courses" requirement in some programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts 
or Bachelor ol Science degrees. 

The Anthropology Department has a total of four laboratories located in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into teaching labs and research labs. The 
department's two archaeology labs, containing materials collected from 
field schools of the past several years, serve for both teaching and 
research purposes. 

All students have access to a twenty-workstation (IBM PS/2 50s) com- 
puter laboratory located at 1 1 01 Woods Hall and is operated by the BSOS 
Computer Laboratory. 

Cultural Systems Analysis Group (CuSAG). a research and program 
development arm of the department, is located in Woods Hall. 

Requirements for Major 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

A student who declares a major in anthropology will be awarded a 
Bachelor ot Arts degree upon fulfillment of the requirements of the degree 
program. The student must complete at least thirty hours of courses with 
the prefix ANTH with a grade of C or better in each course and eighteen 
hours of supportive courses. The courses are distributed as follows; 

a. Eighteen hours of required courses that must include ANTH 101, 
102, 397,401, 451 (or 441), and 371 or 361 (or 461); 

b. Twelve hours of elective courses in anthropology of which nine 
hours must be at the 300 level or above; 

c. Eighteen hours of supporting courses (courses outside of anthro- 
pology offerings in fields that are complementary to the major's 
specific anthropological interests). Supporting courses are to be 
chosen by the student and approved by a faculty advisor. With the 
advisor's endorsement, up to six hours of anthropology courses 
may be counted as "supporting". 



94 Applied Mathematics Program 



In addition to the above requirements, anthropology majors must meet the 
requirements of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, as well as 
the forty credit hours of University Studies Program approved courses 
required of every degree-seeking student of the University. 

Advising 

Undergraduate advising is coordinated by the Director for Undergraduate 
Studies. Dr. William Stuart, who serves as the Administrative Advisor for 
all undergraduate majors and minors. All majors are required to meet with 
Dr. Stuart at least once per term, at the time of preregistration. In addition, 
the Anthropology Department encourages students to select an academic 
advisor who will work closely with the student to tailor the program to fit the 
student's particular interests and needs. All Anthropology faculty mem- 
bers serve as academic advisors (and should be contacted individually). 
Each major is expected to select an academic advisor and to consult with 
him/her on a regular basis. For additional information, students should 
contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Dr. William Taft Stuart, 
0100A Woods Hall. 454-1488. 

Honors 

The Anthropology Department also offers an Honors Program that pro- 
vides the student an opportunity to pursue in-depth study of his or her 
interests. Acceptance is contingent upon a 3.5 GPA in anthropology 
courses and a 3.0 overall average. Members of this program are encour- 
aged to take as many departmental honors courses (either as HONR or 
as "H" sections of ANTH courses) as possible. The Honors Citation is 
awarded upon completion and review of a thesis (usually based upon at 
least one term of research under the direction of an Anthropology faculty 
member) to be done within the field of anthropology. Details and applica- 
tions are available in the Anthropology Office, or contact your advisor for 
further information.

The Major 

An Art Department is a place where ideas become art objects. To 
accomplish this transformation, the art student must articulate and refine 
the concept, and then apply acquired knowledge and skills to the materials 
that compnse the object. 

Human beings have made and embellished objects for thousands of 
years. In the Twentieth Century. Art Department faculties and students 
embody this fundamental human inclination and attempt to understand, 

convey, and celebrate it.

The Major 

A major in the department of Art History leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree 
through the study and scholarly Interpretation of existing works of art, from 
the prehistoric era to the present. 

The goal of the Art History Department is to develop the student's 
aesthetic sensitivity and understanding of art as well as to impart a 
knowledge of the works, the artists, and their place in history. In addition 
to courses in European art history and archaeology, the curriculum 
includes courses in Afncan, American, Black American, Chinese, Japa- 
nese, and Pre-Columbian art history and archaeology, all taught by 
specialists in the fields. The department's 65,000 volume art library and 
the University's art gallery are located in the art building. 

An Art History major is often combined for a double major with other 
academic disciplines, such as Anthropology, American Studies, Classics. 
Economics, History, languages and literature, or with professional disci- 
plines, such as Architecture, Design, and Journalism. The Art History 
faculty encourages the development of language skills and writing. The 
program provides a good foundation for graduate study, for work in

and astrophysics: ASTR 200 and ASTR 350. They are also required to 



96 Biological Sciences Program 



take ASTR 210 (Practical Astronomy) plus three 400-level astronomy 
courses, one of which must be ASTR 410. 

Students majoring in astronomy are also required to obtain a good 
background in physics and in mathematics. The normal required se- 
quence IS PHYS 171. 272. 273 and the associated labs PHYS 275. 276 
and 375, With the permission of the advisor. PHYS 1 61 . 262, 263 plus 375 
can be substituted for this sequence. Astronomy majors are also required 
to take a series of supporting courses in mathematics. These are MATH 
1 40, 1 41 , 240 and 241 . In addition, MATH 246 is strongly recommended. 

The program requires that a grade of C or better be obtained in all courses. 
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 standard 
program can be found in the pamphlet entitled "Department Requirements 
for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronomy" which is available from 
the Astronomy Program office. 

Courses for Non-Science IVIajors 

There is 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 1 00 is a general survey 
course that briefly covers all of the major topics in astronomy. ASTR 1 1 
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 as the Solar System, Galaxies and 
the Universe, and Life in the Universe. Non-science majors should not 
normally take ASTR 200 or ASTR 350. 

Honors 

The Honors Program offers students of exceptional ability and interest in 
astronomy 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 bachelors 
degree. Students for the Honors Program are accepted by the Depart- 
ment'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 
comprehensive examination in the senior year, concludes the program 
which may lead to graduation "with honors (or high honors) in astronomy."

education in the biological sciences than is available in the programs for 
majors in the various departments m the College of Life Sciences, It is 
appropriate tor the entering student who wishes to explore the various 
areas of biology before specializing in the major offered by a single 
department, or for the student desiring to concentrate on a broad area of 
biology. 

By the beginning of the junior year students select one of several areas to 

emphasize, including marine biology, ecology, physiology, genetics, 
animal sciences, botany, chemistry, entomology, microbiology, or zool- 
ogy. Information pertaining to a specific emphasis or to the generalist 
program is available at the college office. Alternatively, the student may 
elect to remain a generalist throughout the program. Individual programs 
to meet specific career goals may be developed between the student and 



the coordinator. In each case, advising will be carried out In the depart- 
ment in which most of the work is to be taken. 

Preparation for graduate study in a specialized area of biology is readify 
accomplished under this program by the judicious selection of junior- 
senior level courses in the proposed area of graduate concentration 
Students in the pirogram who are attempting to meet the requirements of 
a pre-professional 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

The Major 

The development and production of novel materials has become a major 
issue in all fields of engineering. Materials which are strong and light at the 
same time are needed for space structures; faster electro-optical switch- 
ing materials will result in improved mass communications; and high 
temperature plastics would improve the efficiency of transportation sys- 
tems. Many of today's materials requirements can be met by composites. 
The materials engineering program provides the student with an interdis- 
ciplinary science-based education to understanding the structure and 
resulting properties of metallic, ceramic and polymeric materials. A wide 
variety of careers is open to graduates of this program ranging from pro- 
duction and quality control in the traditional materials industries to the 
molecular construction of electronic materials in ultra-clean environ- 
ments. 

Students may use Materials Engineering as a field of concentration in the 
Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program. 

Requirements for Major 

The curriculum is composed of; (1 ) the required USP (general education) 
requirements of the campus; (2) a core of mathematics, physics, chem- 
istry, and engineering courses required of all engineering students; (3) 
twelve credits of courses selected within a secondary, minor field; (4) 
twenty-three credits of materials engineering courses; and (5) technical 
electives to be selected by the student and his or her advisor to enrich, 
specialize or expand certain areas of knowledge within the chosen field.

The Major 

Civil Engineering Is a people-serving profession, concerned with the 
planning, design, construction and operation of large, complex systems 
such as 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 aircratt and ships. Civil engineering also 
includes urban and city planning, water and land pollution and treatment 
problems, and disposal of hazardous wastes and chemicals. The design 
and construction of these systems are only part of the many challenges 
and opportunities faced by civil engineers. The recent revolution In 
computers, communications and data management has provided new re- 
sources that are widely used by the professional civil engineer in providing 
safe, economical and functional facilities to serve our society. 

Requirements for Major 

At both the undergraduate and graduate levels, the department offers 
programs 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 
engineering, and water resources and remote sensing. A total of 132 
credit hours is required for a Bachelor's degree with emphasis in basic 
science (mathematics, chemistry and physics), engineering science 
(mechanics of materials, statics and dynamics), basic civil engineering 
core courses, and sixteen credits of technical electives that may be 
selected from a combination of the six areas of civil engineering concen- 
tration. The undergraduate curriculum listed below is new, beginning in 
the Fall 1990 semester. This curriculum provides a sensible blend of 
required courses and electives, which permits students to pursue their 
interests without the risk of overspecialization at the undergraduate level. 
Mandatory student evaluations of teaching and a recent departmental 
peer evaluation of teaching indicates that the quality of teaching and 
instruction within the department is outstanding.

'Jointly with (Mathematics 

'Jointly with Computer Science Center 

The Major 

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

A computer scientist is concerned with problem solving. Problems range 
from abstract (determining what problems can be solved with computers 
and the complexity of the algorithms that solve them) to practical (design 
of computer systems easy for people to use). Computer scientists build 
computational models of systems including physical phenomena (weather 
forecasting), human behavior (expert systems, robotics), and computer 
systems themselves (performance evaluation). Such models often re- 
quire extensive numeric or symbolic computation. Computer scientists 
design and analyze algonthms to solve problems, and develop and study 
the performance of computer hardware and software. 

Requirements for Major 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

The course of study for a Computer Science major must satisfy all of the 
following requirements: 

1 . A minimum of 37 credit hours of CMSC courses which satisfy the 
following conditions: 

a. A grade of C or better in each course, 
b CMSC 1 50, 1 1 3. 251 , and 280. (Some students may also need 
CMSC 112). 

c. A grade of C or better must be obtained in CMSC 1 50 and 1 1 2 
before taking CMSC 1 13 or CMSC 251 ; in CMSC 113 before 
taking CMSC 280, 330 and in CMSC 280 before taking CMSC 
311. Advanced placement may substitute for the CMSC 1 1 2 re- 
quirement. 

d. At least 24 credit hours at the 300-400 levels, including CMSC 
311, CMSC 330 and at least 15 credit hours of the following 
courses: 

Computer Systems: CMSC 41 1 ; 412; 

Information Processing: 420; one of 421 , 424, or 426; 

Software Engineering and Programming Languages; 430; 435; 

Theory of Computation; 451 ; 452; 

Numerical Analysis: one of 460 or 466; 467. 

These 15 hours must be taken in at least three of the five areas with no 
more than two courses from any area. 

2. MATH 140. 141. and at least two MATH. STAT or MAPL courses 
that require MATH 141 (or a more advanced mathematics course) 
(of the two courses, on must be a STAT course) as a prerequisite, 
and one other MATH, STAT, or MAPL course that requires MATH 
141 (or a more advanced mathematics course) as a prerequisite. 
A grade of C or better must be achieved in each course. No course 
that is cross-listed as CMSC may be counted in this requirement. 



3. A minimum of 1 2 additional credit hours of 300-400 level courses 
(plus their prerequisites) in one discipline outside of computer 
science with an average grade of C or better. No course that is 
cross-listed as CMSC may be counted in this requirement. 

4. 37 credit hours to satisfy the general education CORE Program 
requirements of the University. Courses taken to satisfy these re- 
quirements may also be used to satisfy major requirements. 

5. Electives to obtain at least the minimum 120 credit hours needed 
for graduation. 

The above requirements are effective Fall 1990. Students who entered 
the major prior to Fall 1990 and transfer students who enter a Maryland 
community college by Fall 1 990 and transfer to UMC P no later than Spring 
1 993 under the articulated transfer program may satisfy the older version 
of the requirements. 

Selective Admissions Policies 

Freshmen: Admission to the major is competitive for incoming freshmen. 
Applicants who have designated a computer science major will be 
selected for admission on the basis of academic promise and available 
space. Applicants admissible to the university but not to the major will be 
offered admission to pre-computer science. A pre computer science 
major takes the same freshman and sophomore level courses as a major. 
but is not assured eventual admission to the major. Because of space 
limitations the university may not be able to offer admission to all qualified 
applicants. The University of Maryland at College Park strongly urges 
early application. 

Transfer: Admission to the major is competitive for transfer students. 
Applicants who have designated a computer science major will be 
selected for admission on the basis of academic promise and available 
space. Because of space limitations the University may not be able to offer 
admission to all qualified applicants. The University of Maryland at 
College Park strongly urges early application. 

Pre-majors: Pre-computer science majors may apply for admission to the 
major after completion of at least 28 credits, including CMSC 1 50 and 1 1 3 
and MATH 1 40 and 141. Admission is competitive, with a minimum GPA. 
currently 2.8, set each semester. Pre-majors may not take computer 
science courses beyond the 200-level. 

Computer Science majors should take CMSC 1 50 and CMSC 1 1 3 in their 
first year. These courses emphasize the use of formal techniques in 
computer science: grammars, discrete mathematics, functional seman- 
tics, and program correctness. 

Advising 

Computer science majors may schedule advising through 1103 A.V. 
Williams. Interested students should call (301 ) 454-2002 to receive further 
information about the program. Advisors for pre-majors are located in the 
CMPS Deans Office. 2300 Mathematics BIdg. 

Financial Assistance 

Many scholarships are available through the university, and others (for 
advanced students) are administered directly by the department. There 
are opportunities for student employment as a tutor or as a member of the 
department's laboratory staff. Professors may also have funds to hire 
undergraduates to assist in research. Many students also participate in 
internship or cooperative education programs, working in the computer 
industry for a semester during their junior or senior years. 

Honors 

A departmental honors program provides an opportunity for outstanding 
undergraduates to take graduate level courses or to begin scholarly 
research in independent study with a faculty member. Students are 
accepted into the program after their sophomore year based on their 
academic performance. 

Student Organizations 

Computer-related extracurricular activities are arranged by our student 
chapter of the ACM, the professional group for computer scientists and by 
the Minority Computer Science Society. Meetings include technical lec- 
tures and career information. The department also participates in the 



104 Counseling and Personnel Services 



programming contest run by the national ACM, and our teams have been 
very successful In this competition. 

Computer Science Courses for Non-Majors

Advising 



Advising for Criminology and Criminal Justice majors is available in the 
institute (454-4538). All majors are strongly encouraged to see an advisor 
at least once each semester. 

Internships 

Internships are available through CJUS 398 and CRIM 359 in a variety of 
federal, state, local, and private agencies. 

Each semester the institute selects the outstanding graduating senior for 
the Peter P. Lejins award. 

Honors 

The Honors Program provides superior students the opportunity for 
advanced study in both a seminar format and independent study under the 
direction of the faculty. The Honors Program is a three-semester (nine- 
credit hour) sequence that a student begins in the spring semester, three 
or four semesters prior to graduation. CRIM/CJUS 388H, the first course 
in the sequence, is offered only during the spring semester. The second 
and third courses in the sequence consist of a year-long research project 
(six credits, three each semester) or an honors thesis (one semester, 
three credits) followed by a graduate seminar in the institute (one 
semester, three credits). Honors students may count their Honors courses 
toward satisfaction of their curriculum requirements: if they are criminal 
justice majors, they may count their Honors courses toward satisfaction 
of the basic 30-hour requirement; if they are criminology majors, they may 
count their Honors courses in place of the psychology electives and social 
psychology supporting course requirements. Requirements for admis- 
sion to the Honors Program include a cumulative grade-point average of 
at least 3.25. no grade lower than B for any criminology or criminal justice 
course, and evidence of satisfactory writing ability.

level of a classical language. 

In the modern languages: French, German, and Spanish — students 
should take the placement test in the language in which they have had 
work if they wish to continue the same language : their language instruction 
would start at the level indicated by the test. With classical languages, 
students would start at the level indicated in this catalog. 

For students who come under the provisions atx)ve. the placement test 
may also serve as a proficiency test and may be taken by a student any 
time (once a semester) to try to fulfill the language requirement. 

Students who have studied languages other than French. German, or 
Spanish, or who have lived for two or more years in a foreign country 
where a language other than English prevails, shall be placed by the chair 
of the respective language section, if feasible, or by the chairs of the

Music Education 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

The curriculum in music leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in 
education with a major in music education. It is planned to meet the 
demand for specialists, supervisors, and resource teachers in music in the 
schools. The program provides training in the teaching of general music/ 
choral and instrumental music and leads to certification to teach music at 
both elementary and secondary school levels in Maryland and most other 
states. There are two options. The general music/choral option is for 
students whose principal instrument is voice or piano; the instrumental 
option is for students whose principal instrument is an orchestral or band 
instrument. Students are able to develop proficiency in both certifications 
by taking additional courses. 

Auditions are required for admission to the program. All students teach 
and are carefully observed in clinical settings by members of the music 
education faculty. This is intended to ensure the maximum development 
and growth of each student's professional and personal competencies. 
Each student is assigned to an advisor who guides him or her through the 
various stages of advancement in the program of music and music 
education.

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 
avi/areness of the physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of move- 
ment 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 
experience 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 in 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, orgeneral studies (encompassing dance history, literature and 
criticism). 

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 make additional contributions to 
the program. There are several performance and choreographic opportu- 
nities for all dance students, ranging from informal workshops to fully 
mounted concerts both on and off campus. Students may have the 
opportunity of working with Improvisations Unlimited, a company in 
residence in the department. 

Requirements for Major 

Students must complete fifty-nine semester hours of dance credits. Of 
these, eighteen hours of modern technique and four hours of ballet 
technique 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 distribute the 
remaining thirty-seven credits as follows: 

DANC 208. 308. 388— Choreography I, II, III 9 

DANC 102— Rhythmic Training 2 

DANC 109— Improvisation 2

DANC 482— Dance History 3 

DANC 370 — Kinesiology for Dancers 4 

DANC 410— Dance Production 3 

DANC 484— Philosophy of Dance 3 

A grade of C or higher must be attained in all dance courses. 

New. re-entering and transfer students are expected to contact the 
department following admission to the university for instructions regarding 
advising and registration procedures. Although entrance auditions are not 
required, some previous dance expenence is highly desirable. Further 
information may be obtained from the Dance Department Student Hand- 
book.

tDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

Economics is the study of the production, pricing, and distribution of goods 
and services within societies. Economists study such problems as infla- 
tion, unemployment, technical change, poverty, environmental quality, 
and foreign trade. Economists also apply economics to such diverse 
areas as crime, sexual roles, health care and the elderly, discrimination, 
urban development, and developing nation problems. 

Two characteristics of modern economics receive special attention in the 
Department's program. Government policies have profound effects on 
how our economic system performs. Government expenditures, regula- 
tions, and taxation either directly or indirectly affect both households and 
firms. Second, there is a growing interdependency among economies 
throughout the world. Extensive worldwide markets exist in which goods 
and services are traded, and capital and investments move across 
national boundaries. Economic events in one nation are often quickly 
transmitted to other nations. 

Economists study these phenomena through the development of system- 
atic principles and analytic models which descnbe how economic agents 
behave and interact. These models are the subject of empirical testing. 
often using computers and extensive data sets. 

The interests of the faculty, as reflected in the course otfenngs. are txjth 
theoretical and applied. As a large diverse department, the Economics 
Department offers courses in all of the major fields of economic study. The 
Department s program stresses the application of economic theory and 
econometrics to current problems in a large number of fields. Many 
courses in the Departments program analyze the role of the government 
and public policies on the economy. 

The program is designed to serve both majors and non-majors. The 
Department offers a wide variety of 300-level courses on particular 
economic issues which can be taken after one or two semesters of basic 
principles. These courses can be especially useful lor those planning 
careers in law. business, or the public sector The program for majors is 
designed to serve those who will seek employment Immediately after 
college as well as those who will pursue graduate study. 

Economics majors have a wide vanety of career options in both the pnvate 
and public sectors. These include careers in state and local government, 
federal and international agencies, business, finance and banking, jour- 
nalism, teaching, politics and law. Many economics majors pursue gradu- 
ate work in economics or another social science, law, business or public 
administration (public policy, health, urban and regional planning, educa- 
tion, and industrial relations). 

Entrance Requirements 

Economics is a selective major Admission to the major occurs at the 
Junior level, except lor a limited number of academically talented fresh- 
men. In order to be admitted, an applicant must (1 ) have earned at least 



Education Policy, Planning, and Administration 111 



56 credits with a cumulative GPA equal to or above the minimum GPA in 
effect for the semester the student applies (e.g.. 2.50 GPA lor Fall 1 990); 
and (b) have completed nine hours ot "economics entry" courses at a 
satisfactory grade level The "economics entry" courses include MATH 
220 (or MATH 1 40). ECON 201 . and ECON 203. which must be completed 
with a grade of C or better in each course, and a minimum GPA of 2.5 in 
the nine hours. Students may apply for admission at the Office ot 
Admission. 

Requirements for Major 

In addition to University Studies requirements, the requirements for the 
Economics mapr are as follows: 

(1) Economics (and Mathematics) Courses (36 hours) 

Economics majors must earn 33 credit hours in Economics, and 
3 credit hours in Mathematics (MATH 220 or 1 40), with a grade of 
C or better in each course. 

All majors must complete 12 hours of Core Requirements with a 
satisfactory grade point average (GPA). The Core Requirements 
include ECON 201 . ECON 203. ECON 305 (formerly ECON 401 ) 
or ECON 405. and ECON 306 (formerly ECON 403) or ECON 406. 
A satisfactory GPA must satisfy each of the following: a grade of 
C or better in each course: a 2.5 GPA in the four courses 
comprising the Core Requirements; and a 2 5 GPA in ECON 305 
(or 405) and 306 (or 406). 

Students must also complete twenty-one hours in upper level Eco- 
nomics courses: 

a) three hours in statistics; ECON 321 (formerly ECON 421) or 
BMGT 230 or BMGT 231 or STAT 400; 

b) three hours in economic history or comparative systems; 
ECON 31 0. ECON 31 1 . ECON 315 (formerly ECON 41 5) or 
ECON 380; 

c) nine hours in courses with at least one semester of intermedi- 
ate theory or economic statistics (ECON 321) as a prerequi- 
site. The following courses presently have this prerequisite: 
ECON 402, ECON 416, ECON 422. ECON 423. ECON 425. 
ECON 431, ECON 441, ECON 454, ECON 460 and ECON 
470; 

d) six other hours in upper division Economics. 

(2) Additional Supporting Courses (15 hours) 

Students must earn 1 5 hours of credit in upper division courses in 
addition to the 36 hours of Economics (and Mathematics) courses 
listed above. Upper division courses include all courses with a 300 
number and aliove. Additional mathematics courses beyond the 
required mathematics course (MATH 220), and computer pro- 
gramming courses at the 200 level and above may be counted as 
fulfilling the Additional Support Course Requirement. Additional 
economics courses may be included among the 15 hours of 
supporting courses. 



All courses meeting this Additional Support Course requirement must 
be completed with a grade of C or better and may not be taken pass- 
fail. 

Study Sequences and Plans of Study 

Economics is an analytic discipline, building on a core of principles, 
analytic models, and statistical techniques. Students must begin with a 
foundation in mathematics and economic principles (ECON 201 and 
ECON 203). A more advanced, analytic treatment of economics is 
presented in intermediate theory (ECON 305 and ECON 306), which is a 
necessary background for in-depth study by economics majors. 

The department urges that the student take ECON 201 and 203 and 
MATH 220 as soon as possible. Honors versions of ECON 201 and 203 
are offered for students seeking a more rigorous analysis of principles, 
departmental honors candidates, and those intending to attending gradu- 
ate school. Admission is granted by the Office of Undergraduate Advising 
or the University Honors Program. 

Courses in applied areas at the 300 level may be taken at any point after 
principles. However, majors will benefit by completing ECON 305, ECON 
306. and ECON 321 or its equivalent immediately upon completion of 
pnnciples. While most students take ECON 305 and 306 in sequence, 
they may be taken concurrently. Courses at the 400 level are generally 



more demanding, particularly those courses with intermediate theory as 
a prerequisite 

Empirical research and the use of computers are becoming increasingly 
important in economics. All students are well advised to include as many 
statistics, econometrics, and computer programming courses in their 
curriculum as possible. 

Those students planning to pursue graduate study in economics must 
begin to prepare themselves analytically for graduate work by focusing on 
theory, statistics, and mathematics in their undergraduate curnculum. 
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 1 40. MATH 141, MATH 240 (or MATH 400), MATH 
241 and MATH 246 as very useful preparation. 

Advising 

The department has a full-time academic advisor providing advising on a 
walk-in basis in the Office of Undergraduate Advising. 3127A Tydings. 

Honors 

The Economics Honors Program provides economics majors with the 
opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with faculty supervi- 
sion 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. 

Awards 

The Dudley and Louisa Dillard Prize, currently $500. is awarded to the 
outstanding Economics junior with a broad liberal arts program. 

Student Organizations 

Omicron Delta Epsilon. the economics honorary society, meets regularly 
to discuss economics and other graduate schools, employment opportu- 
nities, and recent economic trends. Please see the Undergraduate

The Major 

The Electncal Engineering major is intended to prepare students to 
function as effective citizens and engineers in an increasingly technologi- 
cal world as well as in science and engineering subjects. Depth as well as 
breadth is required in the humanities and social sciences to understand 
the economic, ecologic. and human factors involved in reaching the best 
solutions to todays problems. 

The basic foundation in mathematical, physical, and engineering sci- 
ences IS established in the first two years of the curriculum. A core of 
required Electncal Engineehng courses is followed by a flexible structure 
of electives which allows either breadth or specialization. Appropriate 
choices of electives can prepare an Electrical Engineering major for a 
career as a practicing engineer and/or for graduate study. 

Areas stressed in the major include communication systems, computer 
systems, control systems, engineenng electromagnetics, microelectron- 
ics, and power systems. Within these areas are courses In such topics as 
solid state electronics, integrated circuits, lasers, communications engi- 
neering, computer design, power engineering, digital signal processing, 
antenna design, and many others. Project courses allow undergraduate 
students to undertake Independent study under the guidance of a faculty 
member in an area of mutual interest. 

Requirements for Major 

Requirements for the Electrical Engineenng major include thorough 
preparation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineenng science. 
Elective courses rpust include both Electrical Engineering courses and 
technical courses outside the department. A sample program for the 
portion of the program following the common freshman year In Engineer- 



ing Is shown below. (See College of Engineering section for suggested

ENGINEERING, BACHELOR OF SCIENCE 
DEGREE IN 

College of Engineering 

1131 Engineering Classroom Building, 454-2421 

General Regulations for the B.S. Engineering Degree: All undergradu- 
ate students in engineering will select their major field sponsoring depart- 
ment 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 pnor to the 
time the student expects to receive the baccalaureate degree. As soon as 
the student elects to seek an undesignated baccalaureate degree in en- 
gineering, 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 "Applica- 
tion for Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor of 
Science in Engineering" with the dean's office of the College of 
Engineering. The candidacy form must be approved by the chair of the 
primary field department, the primary 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 unde- 
signated 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 Chapter 5 of this catalog and 
the college requirement of 2.00 G.P.A. in the major field during the junior 
and senior years applies. For the purpose of implementation of such 
academic rules, the credits in the primary engineering field and the credits 
in the secondary field are considered to count as the "major" for 
such academic purposes. 

Options of the "B.S. Engineering" Program 

The "B.S. Engineering" program is designed to serve three primary 
functions: (1 ) to prepare those students who wish to use the breadth and 
depth of their engineenng 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 interdisciplinary fields of engineering such as 
environmental engineering, bio-medical engineering, systems engineer- 
ing, and many others: and finally (3) to educate those students who do not 
plan a normal professional career in designated engineering field but wish 
to use a broad engineering education 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 these objectives, the program has two optional paths: an 
engineering option and an applied science option. 

The engineering option, which is ABET accredited, should be particu- 
larly attractive to those students contemplating graduate study or profes- 
sional employment in the interdisciplinary engineenng fields, such as en- 
vironmental engineering, bio-engineenng. bio-medical, and systems and 
control engineering, or for preparatory entry into a variety of newer or inter- 
disciplinary areas of graduate study. For example, a student contemplat- 



Jngineerlng, Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering 113 



ing graduate work in environmental engineenng might combine chemical 
and civil engineering for his or her program: a student interested in 
systems and control engineenng graduate work might combine electrical 
engineering with aerospace, chemical, or mechanical engineering. 

The applied science option, which is not ABET accredited, should be 
particularly attractive to those students who do not plan to pursue a 
professional engineenng career but wish to use the rational and develop- 
mental 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 B.S. 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 superimposed upon the freshman and sophomore 
curriculum of the chosen pnmary field of engineering. The student, thus, 
does not make a decision whether to take the designated or the undesig- 
nated 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 t^aryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering Educa- 
tion.

'Engineering sciences, for the purpose of this degree, are those courses 
in the College of Engineering prefixed by ENES or in any engineering field 
including the primary or secondary field of engineenng concentration. 
-A minimum of fifty percent of the coursework in the mathematics, physical 
sciences, engineering science and elective areas must be at the 300 or 
400 course number level. 

'All of the courses used to fulfill the fields of concentration requirements 
(thirty-six semester hours in the engineering option and thirty in the 
applied science option) must be at the 300 course number level or above. 
■■For the applied science option each student is required — unless specifi- 
cally excused, and if excused, fifteen semester hours of approved 
electives will be required to complete satisfactorily a senior level project 
or research assignment relating the engineering and science fields of 
concentration. 

*ln the engineering option, the six semester hours of electives must be 
technical (math, physical sciences, or engineering sciences, but may not 
be in the pnmary or secondary fields of concentration). In the applied 
science option, the approved electives should be selected to strengthen 
the student's program consistent with career objectives. Courses in the 
primary or secondary fields of concentration may be used to satisfy the 
approved electives requirement. 

'f^or the engineering option, the program must contain the proper design 
component, as specified by the ABET requirements. It is the responsibility 



114 English Language and Literature 



of students and their advisors to ensure that the requirements are satisfied 
by the appropnate selection of courses in the primary and secondary 
fields of concentration. As part of the required design component, all 
students, except those choosing Nuclear Engineering as a primary field, 
must complete ENME 404.

The Major 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

The English major requires 39 credits in English beyond the two required 
University writing courses. This relatively small number reflects the 
department's desire that students choose wisely a variety of electlves to 
acquire a broad and liberal education. An English major Is good profes- 
sional preparation for a career In the law. government, journalism, 
business communication, teaching, or any field that requires strong 
analytical, communication, and human skills. Students may also want to 
consider a double major or the Liberal Arts and Business program (454- 
6794) to prepare themselves for a profession. 

Requirements for Major 

A student may pursue an English major with an emphasis in 1 ) English and 
American Literature. 2) Comparative Literature. 3) English Language and 
Linguistics, or 4) English Education. Basic requirements for the most 
commonly selected option, English and American Literature, are: 

1 ) The department's core courses (restricted to English and English 
Education majors): English 310 (Medieval and Renaissance Brit- 
ish Literature). 31 1 (Baroque and Augustan British Literature), 312 
(Romantic to Modern Bntish Literature), and 31 3 (Amencan Litera- 
ture). 

2) Shakespeare: English 205 or 304 or 403 or 404. 

3) One 300-400 level course (other than Shakespeare) in English or 
American literature before 1800. 

4) A senior seminar: English 399. 

5) 18 elective credits in English. 

6) 12 supporting credits in the departments of modem languages.

The Department of Family and Community Development is devoted to 
describing, explaining, and improving the quality of life by means of 
research, education, community outreach, and public service. The ap- 
proach is holistic, emphasizing human ecology. The curriculum places 
special emphasis upon the family and the community as mediating 
structures in determining life quality. The jobs for which the curriculum is 
designed include counseling, program management, research, advo- 
cacy, and service delivery. 

Graduates of the department obtain positions in human service agencies, 
consulting firms, voluntary organizations, and Federal, State, and local 
governments. Their specific jobs may be in area agencies or organiza- 
tions such as the Federal Drug Administration, Planned Parenthood, 
youth services, family sen/ices, or senior citizens programs. 

The Majors 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

The department offers three interrelated majors: 

Family Studies 

This course of study stresses a working knowledge of the growth of 
individuals throughout the life span with particular emphasis on intergen- 
erational aspects of family living. It examines the pluralistic family forms 
and life styles within our post-technological complex society and the 
development of the individual within the family and the community. 

Management and Consumer Studies 

Within this major are \wo specializations: (a) program management and 
(b) consumer affairs. The focus is upon the efficient and effective utiliza- 
tion of organizational and other community resources. 

Community Studies 

This major stresses community development, community organization, 
and advocacy and their relevance to families. In general there is an 
emphasis upon the processes and methods for social change, as well as 
the individuals, organizations or groups which act as agents of change. 



Each of these courses of study includes a set of major subject courses 
offered primarily within the department plus a sequence of supporting 
area courses which may be taken outside the department or in an 
interdepartmental combination. Examples of supporting areas include the 
aging, the disabled, human service, children's issues, management, 
health, public administration, rehabilitation, and urban affairs. Students 
are strongly encouraged to consult with an appropriate advisor in devel- 
oping their course of study. 

There are parallel requirements for each of the department's majors 
(family studies, management and consumer studies and community 
studies). Each major requires a fifteen-credit thematic set of supportive 
area courses. To graduate, students must also meet the requirements of 
the campus (e.g., those specified in the University Studies Program) and 
of the College of Human Ecology. 

Grades 

All students are required to earn a grade of C or better in all courses 
applied toward satisfaction of the major. This includes all required courses 
with the FMCD prefix as well as the courses used for the supporting area.

The Major 



The fire protection engineering major is concerned with the scientific and 
technical problems of preventing loss of life and property from fire, 
explosion, and related hazards, and of evaluating and eliminating hazard- 
ous conditions. 

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineering are relatively 
well-defined and the application of these principles to a modern industh- 
allzed society has become a specialized activity Control of the hazards 
In manufacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of meas- 
ures for the protection but of the processes themselves. Often the most 
effective 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 pnnciples of 
fire protection but on a thorough understanding of the special problems of 
the individual property. 



Modern tire protection utilizes a wide variety of mechanical and electrical 
equipment which the student must understand in pnnclple before he or 
she can apply them to special problems. The fire protection curriculum 
emphasizes the scientific, technical, and humanitarian aspects of tire 
protection engineering and the development ol the individual student. 

The problems and challenges which confront the fire protection engineer 
include the reduction and control of fire hazards due to processes subject 
to fire or explosion m respect to design, installation and handling, mvolvirig 
both physical and human factors; the use ol buildings and transportation 
facilities to restrict the spread of fire and to facilitate the escape ol 
occupants in case ot 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 lire protection.

The Major 

Food Science is concerned with the application of the fundamental 
principles of the physical, biological and behavioral sciences and engi- 
neering to better understand the complex and heterogeneous materials 
recognized as food. The contemporary food industry is highly dependent 
on this accumulating multidisciplinary body of knowledge and especially 
on the people who are educated to apply it, i.e., the food scientists or food 
technologists, terms that are used interchangeably. 

Courses include the general areas of manufacture, distribution, prepara- 
tion 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, food processing technology including freezing, thermal and 
aseptic processing, quality assurance, and the food commodity areas of 
fruits and vegetables, milk and dairy products, poultry and poultry prod- 
ucts, red meats and seafood products. 

Opportunities for careers in food science are available in industry, trade 
associations, government and universities. Specific positions for food 
scientists include food product development, production management, 
quality assurance, technical sales and service, ingredient management, 
food processing, research and teaching.

'Joint Appointment with unit indicated. 

The Major 

The Department of Geography offers programs of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Science degree. Many students find that the multiple perspec- 
tives of geography form an excellent base for a liberal arts education. The 
abilities to write clearly and to synthesize information and concepts are 
valued highly in geographical education and practice. Students of geog- 
raphy must master substantive knowledge either in the physical/natural 
sciences or in the behavioral/social sciences in addition to methodological 
knowledge. International interests are best pursued with complementary 
study in foreign languages and area studies. 

The central question in geographical study is "where?" Geographers 
research locational questions of the natural environment, of social and 
economic systems, and of past human activity on the land Students of 
geography must master a variety of techniques that are useful in locational 
analysis, including computer applications and mapping, map making or 
cartography, air-photo interpretation and remote sensing, field observa- 
tion, statistical analysis, and mathematical modelling. 

Increasingly, geographers apply their combined methodological and 
substantive knowledge towards the solution of society's problems. Some 
graduates find geography to be an excellent background for careers in 
defense and intelligence, journalism, law, travel and tourism, the nonprofit 
sector, and business and management. Most professional career posi- 
tions in geography require graduate training. Many geographers take 
positions in scientific research, planning, management and pwlicy analy- 
sis for both government and private agencies. 

Major Requirements Including Program Options 

Within any of the specializations available in the geography major pro- 
gram it is possible for students to adjust their programs to fit their individual 
interests. The geography major totals thirty-seven semester hours. In 
addition to the thirty-seven semester hours, the geography major is 
required to take an additional fifteen semester hours of supporting 
coursework outside of the department. The hours can be either in one 
department of in an area of concentration. An area of concentration 
requires that a written program of courses be reviewed and placed on file 
by the department advisor. See Professor Cirnncione, 1 125 LeFrak Hall, 
454-2244. Supporting courses generally are related to the area of spe- 
cialty in geography. The pass-tail option is not applicable to major or 
supporting courses. A minimum grade of C in each course is required for 
major and supporting courses. 

The required courses for geography majors are as follows:

GEOG 310— Research and Writing in Geography 3 

The four lower division courses are to be completed prior to GEOG 310 
and all other upper division courses GEOG 201. 202, and 203 may be 
taken in any order and a student may register tor more than one in any 
semester. GEOG 21 1 may be taken concurrent with, or after taking GEOG 
201 GEOG 305 is prerequisite to GEOG 310 GEOG 310 is designed 
specifically as a preparation to upper level work and should be taken by 
the end of the junior year. Upon consultation with a department advisor, 
a reasonable load of other upper level work in geography may be taken 
concurrently with GEOG 310. Completion of GEOG 310 satisfies for 
geography majors only the upper level English composition requirement 



The techniques requirement may be tullilled by taking one o( the lollowing:

Introduction to Geography 

The 100-level geography courses are general-education courses for 
persons who have had no previous contact with the discipline in high 
school or for persons planning to take only one course in geography. They 
provide general overviews of the field or in one of its major topics. Credit 
for these courses is not applied to the major. 

Areas of Specialization 

Although the major program is flexible and can be designed to fit any 
individual student's own interest, several specializations attract numbers 
of students. They are: 

Urban Geography and Regional Development 

Provides preparation for careers in planning, development, research and 
teaching. Majors electing this specialty take departmental courses in 
urban geography, location theory and spatial analysis, transportation, and 
economic geography among others, and supporting courses outside the 
department in urtjan sociology, urban economics, urban transportation, 
housing and design, family and community development, architecture, 
and in urban studies and planning. 

Environmental Analysis, Resources Management and Physical 
Geography 

For students with special interests in the natural environment and its 
interaction with humans. This specialization consists of departmental 
courses in geomorphology. climatology, biogeography, and energy, pol- 
lution, and water resources, and of supporting courses in geology, soils, 
meteorology, civil engineering, hydrology, and botany. 

Computer Mapping, Cartography and Spatial Analysis 

Prepares students for careers in map design, compilation, and reproduc- 
tion. The department offers various courses in thematic mapping, carto- 
graphic history and theory, map evaluation, map. photo, and image 
interpretation, computer-assisted cartography, spatial statistics, and 
geographic information systems. Students concentrating in cartography 
are not required to take GEOG 305 and are limited to nine hours of upper 
level systematic geography courses. Students must complete fifteen 
hours in cartography/geographic techniques. Supporting area courses 
must be taken from a list provided by the department. All math programs 
should be approved by a departmental advisor. 

The required courses of the Cartography concentration are as follows:

Human and Historical Cultural Geography 

Of interest to students particularly concerned with the geographic aspects 
of population, politics, and other social and cultural phenomena, and with 
historical and iocational processes in cities and in colonial settlement. In 
addition to departmental course offerings, this specialization necessitates 
study in sociology, anthropology, government and politics, history, and 
economics For further information on any of these areas of specialization, 
students should contact a departmental advisor. 

Geography Minor and Secondary Education Geography 
Specialization 

Secondary Education majors with a concentration in geography are 
required to take twenty-seven hours in the content field, GEOG 201 , 202, 
203, 311. 305, and 490, or another upper-level course reflecting this 
interest. The remaining twelve hours of the program consist of three hours 
of regional geography and nine hoursof upper-division systematic courses. 
For majors in elementary education and others needing a geography 
course for teaching certification, GEOG 100 is the required course. 

Geography minors should take at least GEOG 201 . 202. and 203 in the 
geography core and 310 is recommended. As with the major, these 
courses should be taken before any other geography courses. 

Internship Opportunities 

The department offers a one-semester internship program for under- 
graduates (GEOG 384 and 385). The goal of the program is to enhance 
the intellectual growth and the career opportunities of undergraduates. 
The internship provides students an opportunity to expand their under- 
standing of the field by linking the theoretical aspects of geography 
acquired in the classroom to the applied aspects operating in a practice 
situation. The internship program is open only to geography juniors and 
seniors. All interns must have completed the following prerequisites: 
GEOG 201, 202, 203, 211, 305, and 310. An application form from the 
undergraduate geography advisor must be submitted one semester 
before the internship is desired. See Professor Cirrincione, 1 1 25 LeFrak 
Hall, 454-2244.

The Major 

Geology is the basic science of the earth. In its broadest sense, geology 
concerns itself with planetary formation and modification with emphasis 
on the study of the planet earth. Geology concerns itself with the phnciples 
of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics and their application to 



120 Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literature 

the understanding of the composition, behavior and history of our planet. 
Geologic studies involve the earth's internal and external structure and 
materials, chemical and physical processes and its physical and biological 
history. 

Geology thus encompasses such subjects as the development of life as 
evidenced by the fossil record, the mechanics of crustal movement and 
the associated production of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the 
evolution of the oceans and their interaction with the continents, the origin 
and occurrence of mineral and fuel resources and the evaluation of the 
human impact on the natural environment. 

Geological scientists find employment in governmental, industrial, and 
academic establishments. In general, graduate training is expected for 
advancement to the most rewarding positions. Although some sectors of 
the geological science, such as the petroleum industry, are subject to 
cyclical employment conditions, most areas are enjoying a strong employ- 
ment outlook. Employment potential is strong in such specialties as 
hydrology and groundwater, mineral resource consumption, land and 
coastal management, remote sensing, geophysics, and virtually all areas 
of environmental studies. At this time, students with the Bachelor of 
Science, particularly those with supportive training in statistics and 
computer science, can find challenging employment. 

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. Each undergraduate completes an 
individual research project under advisement from a faculty member. 

Requirements for Major Including Program 

The geology curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of graduate 
school or government or industrial employment. However, students may 
select elective courses that are designed for their particular interest, rather 
than for the broad needs of the professional career. Five areas of 
concentration include: Advanced Study for 

Graduate School. Energy and Ivlineral resources. Mineral and Matenals. 
Environment and Engineering Geology, and Earth Science Education. 
These concentrations are used by the undergraduate advisor to help 
students plan career directions which fit their interests, abilities, and the 
present and predicted job market. 

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.

'Joint Appointment with unit indicated 

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs designed to 
prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, 
teaching, and a variety of graduate programs, law schools, and for 
intelligent and purposeful citizenship. Satisfactory completion of require- 
ments leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree in government and politics. 

The study of politics is both an ancient discipline and a modern social 
science. The origin of the discipline can be traced back to the earliest times 
when philosophers, statesmen, and citizens studied the nature of govern- 
ment justice, responsibility, and the consequences of government's 
action, tvlore recently, the study of politics has also emphasized scientific 
observations about politics. Today, the discipline reflects a broad effort to 
collect data about politics and governments utilizing relatively new tech- 
niques developed by all of the social sciences. 

The Department of Government and Politics combines both philosophical 
and scientific concerns in its overall program as well as in specific courses 



and emphasizes such broad areas as political development, policy 
analysis, social justice, political economy, conflict, and human rights. 
These broad conceptual areas are integral components of the formal 
fields in the department. The formal fields are (1) Amencan government 
and politics; (2) comparative government; (3) political theory. (4) interna- 
tional affairs; (5) public administration; (6) public law; and (7) public policy 
and political behavior. 

Areas of Specialization 

The program in government and politics is highly flexible, and a variety of 
advising programs have been developed that meet the academic and 
career interests of departmental majors. The programs listed below are 
among the more popular ones in the department, and students can 
construct their own program with an advisor 

Pre-Law. Provides the student with a strong liberal arts background 
emphasized by law schools; includes at least one course in law, additional 
courses in the political and social context of law, as well as appropriate 
courses outside of the department 

Public Sector Employment. Within this broad category are advising 
programs in general public administration leading to careers at entry-level 
positions in federal, state, and local governments, public finance and 
budgeting, public policy analysis, and public personnel management. 
Quantitative skills are highly recommended in this area, and ma|ors are 
advised to select a strong substantive minor to complement their work in 
public administration. American politics, and public law. 

International Relations. Combines courses in the department in interna- 
tional relations and comparative politics with a strong substantive minor, 
such as economics, business, or resource management. In addition, a 
strong background in a foreign language is highly recommended. 

Public Interest. A broadly defined area emphasizing the American 
political system, organizing, campaigning, lobbying, policy analysis, and 
public sector management. 

In addition, the department also offers strong programs in political theory, 
comparative human rights, environmental politics, women and 
politics, and urban politics. 

Requirements for Major 

Government and Politics majors must complete thirty-six semester hours 
of GVPT courses with a minimum grade of C in each course and may not 
count more than forty-two semester hours of GVPT courses in the total 
credits required for graduation. At least eighteen of the thirty-six credits 
must be in upper-level courses and all majors are required to complete 
GVPT 100, GVPT 170, and either GVPT 441 or GVPT 442. 

In addition, all majors must complete ECON 201 or ECON 205. an 
approved skill option, and a secondary area of concentration in another 
department or approved interdisciplinary area. All courses used to satisfy 
these requirements must be completed with a minimum grade of C. 

Honors 

All students majoring in government may apply for admission to the GVPT 
Honors Program. Additional information concerning the Honors Program 
may be obtained at the department offices. 

Internships 

The department offers students the opportunity to observe government 
agencies and political groups in action through a variety of internship 
experiences. Only nine hours of GVPT internship credit will apply to the 
thirty-six hours needed in the major. In no case may more than fifteen 
GVPT internship credits be counted toward the 120 credits needed to 
graduate.

Hebrew Language and Literature 

The Hebrew Program provides, both to beginners and to those with 
previous background, an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills in 
Hebrew language, literature, culture, and thought. Elementary and Inter- 
mediate level language courses develop effective communications skills 
in modern Hebrew. Upper level language courses emphasize reading 
comprehension, vocabulary enrichment, and writing skills. More ad- 
vanced students focus on the analytical study of major classical and 
modern Hebrew texts. In addition, courses are offered in English (no 
knowledge of Hebrew required) in the areas of Bible, Ancient Near East, 
Rabbinic thought, Jewish Philosophy, and Hebrew literature in transla- 
tion. 

While there is no Hebrew major, students wishing to focus on Hebrew 
language as a primary subject may do so through a concentration on 
Hebrew within the Jewish Studies major (see Jewish Studies program). A 
certificate is also available to students qualifying for a minor. Consult the 
Hebrew office for requirements. 

Hebrew may be used to meet University and College language require- 
ments. 

Honors and Awards 

Several forms of recognition for those excelling in Hebrew are available: 
Membership in Eta Beta Rho, the Hebrew Honor Society, the Bnai Zion 
Award. 

Students are encouraged to apply for residence in the Hebrew suite of the 
Language House, and are encouraged to spend some time studying at an 
Israeli University. The University of Maryland sponsors a semester 
program at Tel Aviv University. Scholarships for study in Israel are 
available through the Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies. 

East Asian Languages and Literatures 
The Major 

A student may major in East Asian languages and literatures with a 
concentration in Chinese or Japanese. Either concentration provides the 
training and cultural background needed for entering East Asia-related 
careers in such fields as higher education, the arts, business, govern- 
ment, international relations, agriculture, or media. Students may also 
want to consider a double major in East Asian languages and literatures

Horticulture students select from a broad spectrum of courses including 
humanities and art, as well as the sciences. Knowledge of basic sciences 
and factors affecting plant growth are applied to resolve world food and 
environmental needs. The humanities and plant and agricultural manage- 
ment courses are pursued by students wishing to design functional, 
aesthetically pleasing living spaces. 

The Department of Horticulture offers undergraduate curricula in Horticul- 
tural Production, Horticultural Science, Horticultural Education, and 
Landscape Design and Contracting. Each prepares students for graduate 
study or entry into the horticultural industries. Advanced studies in the 
department, leading to the (\/I.S. and Ph.D. degrees, are available to 
qualified students with strong motivation for horticultural research, univer- 
sity teaching, and.'or extension education. 

Individuals interested in pursuing a continued education in forestry, 
conservation-related subjects, or other disciplines related to the biologi- 
cal/natural life sciences are advised in the Department of Horticulture. 
Foundation courses in the sciences transfer readily into related curricula 
at any of the approximately fifty universities which offer accredited 
undergraduate degrees in forestry. Virginia Polytechnic Institute and 
State University (VPI/SU) and West Virginia University (WVU) offer 
Maryland residents accepted into their forestry programs eligibility for in- 
state tuition. 

Horticulture graduates are employed in commercial production and sale 
of horticultural crops through orchards and farms, nurseries, green- 
houses, garden centers, and florist shops; production management and 
sales in industries such as food processing, seed production, and agricul- 
tural chemicals: interior plantscaping; technical work in laboratories 
conducting scientific research; and management of landscapes at public 
and private parks, gardens, arboreta, and large- scale commercial, 
industrial, or residential developments. Graduates of the landscape 
design and contracting option are employed by landscape contracting, 
nursery, and engineering firms engaged in the planning design and 
installation services for landscape development. Other students from this 
option pursue the Master of Landscape Architecture degree. The depart- 
ment's horticulture education option certifies students to teach horticul- 
ture at the high school level. 



All students should meet with an advisor before enrolling in option 
courses All horticulture students, regardless of option, must complete all 
courses listed as Departmental Requirements. Students must also 
complete all courses listed as Option Requirements in one of the depart- 
ment's tour curriculum options.

The Department of Housing and Design offers programs of concentration 
in three areas: housing, inlenor design, and advertising design. The 
department seeks to provide professionally focused instruction in the 
theoretical foundation, methods and skills pertinent to each concentration 
area. In addition, students are encouraged to acquire a broad base of 
general education by enrolling in elective, recommended, and required 
courses outside of tfie department. 

Housing 

The housing curriculum is designed to reflect the multidisiciplinary nature 
of the field as well as the vaned 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 provided by the 
department, students are recommended to take courses that will empha- 
size 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 consumed. 
Graduates will be qualified for employment in the housing industry, 
governmental housing agencies, housing authorities, and consumer 
organizations. 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 concepts 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 satisfaction of func- 
tional requirements, an understanding of the needs and motivations 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 residen- 
tial interiors are stressed. Special courses include gaming simulation in 
design and seminars in theoretical concerns. A student chapter of the pro- 
fessional organization American Society of Interior Design (ASID) and 
internship opportunities provide contact with practicing professionals. 
Graduates will be qualified for entry level employment with intenor design 
firms and architectural firms. Students with above average performance 
will be qualified to pursue graduate study. After considerable experience 
has been trained in professional practice, some graduates will open their 
own firm or partnership. 

Advertising Design 

This program provides a foundation in the fields of graphic arxj visual 
communication. Although some of the media used in visual communica- 
tion are the same as those of the painter and the sculptor, the purposes 
and methods of the designer differ from those of the artist m 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, illustration, photography, 
design of orientation systems, and the use of complex technology in con- 
temporary 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 televi- 
sion industry, the print media, the packaging industry, and in the graphic 
section of institutions and government agencies. Students with atjove 
average performance will be qualified to pursue graduate study A student 
chapter of the professional organization I G.I. and internship opporlunl^es 
provide contacts with practicing professionals. 

Admission to the Pre-Design Major 

Any student who has been admitted to 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 Intenor Design and Advertising Design 
is selective Ordmanly. students are admitted to these majors after 
a Design Work Portfolio has been reviewed The Faculty Admis- 
sion Committee composed of the three Area Coordinators and the 
Department Chairperson reviews portfolios and ranks them by 



overall quality. Students whose portfolios receive the highest rank- 
ing are admitted. The portfolio must be submitted by the appropri- 
ate deadline. 

In order to be eligible for a portfolio review, students must have 
earned a minimum of 29 credits and a grade of "C" or higher in each 
of APDS 101. 102, 103, and EDIT 160 

In addition, students will be required to submit their portfolios within 
1 2 months of attaining portfolio review eligibility (as defined above). 
A student may submit a portfolio for review no more than twice 
within those 12 months. If a student has not been accepted into a 
design major after receiving two portfolio reviews or after one year 
from attaining portfolio review eligibility (whichever comes first), the 
student will not be considered for acceptance into either design 
major at Uf\/1CP and must change his or her ma|or. 

2. The following students are exempted from the portfolio review 
requirements: Freshmen who have a 3.0 high school GPA and 
combined SAT score of 1200 or above; or who are National Merit 
and National Achievement Scholarship finalists or semi-finalists: or 
recipients of the Chancellor s Scholarship; or of Maryland Distin- 
guished Scholar Award, or Benjamin Banneker Scholarship. 

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. 

Transfer students from Maryland Public Community Colleges (in- 
cluding NOVA) with an articulated design program may use trans- 
ferred courses equivalent to UMCP design courses in fulfillment of 
"portfolio review eligibility" (as defined in point 1 ). Once portfolio 
eligibility has been achieved, transfer students (like all other pre- 
design students) will have 12 months, with a maximum of two 
attempts, to be admitted into a design major. 



Students transferring from accredited institutions with which there 
is no articulation agreement must have design courses they have 
completed from that institution evaluated, for equivalency to UMCP 
design major requirements, on a case- by-case basis by a depart- 
ment advisor. Courses determined to be equivalent may be used 
towards fulfillment of portfolio review eligibility and towards fulfill- 
ment of design major requirements. Once portfolio review eligibility 
is achieved, transfer students from non-articulated programs will 
proceed on the same basis as all other pre-design students (as 
explained in point i). 

Transfer students who have not completed 29 credits, or who have 
not completed 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 they have applied as a "case-by- 
case" student and have been accepted by the Faculty Admission 
Committee composed of the three Area Coordinators and the 
Department Chairperson. Examples of non-academic criteria 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, leadership in extracurricular or community 
activifes. hobby skills related to Intenor 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 
Advertising Design are classified as "Pre-Design" students. Pre- 
design students will be granted preferential treatment when regis- 
tering for departmental courses in which there is an enrollment 
limitation. 

6. 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 department by the appropriate deadline prior to the beginning 
of the semester in which the student plans to take 200-level-and- 
above courses restricted to majors only. If any of the required four 
courses was not taken at College Park, a transcnpt and approved 
substitution sheet (or permission to take the course at another 
institution) must be attached to the "Change of Major" form. This 
applies to courses taken at any other college or campus, including 
University College. No exceptions will be made to tfiis procedure. 
Students will be informed by mail of action taken.

tDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The Department of Human Development offers: (1) a variety of under- 
graduate courses in human development at the 300 and 400 levels, 
including the areas of development, learning and ad|ustment: (2) graduate 
programs leading to the M.A.. M.Ed and Ph.D. degrees and the A G.S. 
certificate: and (3) field experiences and internships to develop compe- 
tence in applying theory to education practice in schools and other 
settings. Areas of concentration in human development include infancy, 
early childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and aging. Research in educa- 
tional psychology, social, physiological, personality and cognitive areas 
with emphasis on the social aspects of development enhance the instruc- 
tional program. 

Undergraduate courses and workshops are designed for pre-service and 
in-service teachers as well as for students preparing to enter human 
services vocations. The department does not offer an undergraduate 
major. However, undergraduate students may elect human development 
courses in areas of concentration such as ( 1 ) infancy and early childhood, 
(2) adolescence, (3) aging, and (4) human services (social sen/ice, 
recreation, corrections, etc.). Major purposes of undergraduate offerings 
in human development are (1 ) providing experiences which facilitate the 
personal growth of the individual, and (2) preparing people for vocations 
and programs which seek to improve the quality of human life. These 
offerings are designed to help professionals and paraprofessionals ac- 
quire a positive ohentation toward people and basic knowledge and skills 
for helping others. 

Through the Institute for Child Study, the faculty provides consultant 
services and staff development programs for school systems, parent 
groups, court systems, mental health agencies, and other organizations 
involved with helping relationships.

The area of human nutrition and food systems offers many diverse 
professional opportunities. Courses introduce the student to the pnnciples 
of selection, preparation, and utilization of food for human health and the 
welfare of society Emphasis is placed on the scientific, cultural, and 
professional aspects of this broad area of food and nutntion. The depart- 
ment otters four areas of emphasis: dietetics, expenmental foods, food- 
service administration, and human nutrition and foods. Each program 
provides for competencies in several areas of work: however, each option 
is designed specifically for certain professional careers. 

Requirements for Major 

The Dietetics major develops an understanding and competency in food, 
nutrition, and management as related to problems of dietary departments 
and delivery of nutritional care. Nutrition education and community 
nutrition are included in this program The Dietetics program is approved 
by the American Dietetic Association The Experimental Foods major 
develops competency in food science and food-related behavior. Physi- 
cal, chemical and biological sciences in relation to food are emphasized. 
The program is designed for students interested in product development, 
quality control, consumer concerns and technical research in foods. 

Foodservice Administration emphasizes the administration of quantity 
food services in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, restau- 
rants, health care facilities and corporate cafeterias The Human Nutrition 
and Foods major emphasizes the physical and biological sciences in 
relation to nutrition and the development of laboratory skills in these areas. 
Students in this major frequently elect to go on to graduate or medical 
school. 

Each of these courses of study includes a set of major subject courses 
offered primarily within the department, plus supporting courses taken 
outside the department. To graduate, students must also meet the 
requirements of the campus (e.g., those specified in the University 
Studies Program) and the College of Human Ecology. 

Grades 

All students are required to earn a C grade or t)etter in all courses applied 
toward satisfaction of the major. This includes all required courses with a 
prefix of FOOD. NUTR. and FSAD as well as certain required courses in 
supporting fields. A list of these courses for each program may t>e 
obtained from the department office.

The Department of Kinesiology offers two undergraduate degree pro- 
grams to satisfy different needs of students. Students may choose to 
major in Physical Education or in Kinesiological Sciences. Descriptions of 
each program follow. 

Requirements for Major 

This curriculum, including three certification options, prepares students 



(1) for teaching physical education in the secondary schools. (2) for 
coaching, and (3) for leadership in youth and adult groups which offer a 
program of physical activity Students are referred to the section on the 
College of Education tor information on teacher education application 
procedures The first two years of this curriculum are considered to be an 
ohentation period in which the student has an opportunity to gain an 
adequate background in general education as well as in those scientific 
areas closely related to this field of specialization. In addition, emphasis 
is placed upon the development of skills in a wide range of motor activities. 
Further, students are encouraged to select related areas, especially in the 
field of biology, social sciences, psychology, health education, and 
recreation as fields of secondary interest. These matenally increase the 
vocational opportunities which are available to graduates in physical 
education. 

Requirements for Major Including Program Options 

Physical Education majors have a choice of three separate options for 
teacher certification: (1) kindergarten through sixth grade. (2) seventh 
through twelfth grade or (3) kindergarten through twelfth grade. Due to 
increased marketability it is recommended that students pursue the K-1 2 
option. The specific course requirements for each option are as follows:

Admission 

Admission to the Physical Education major occurs upon completion of 45 
applicable credits. At that time, students apply through the College of 
Education by taking the California Achievement Test. Additionally, all 
physical education majors must have and maintain a 2.5 average to gain 
admittance and continue in the program. 

Student Teaching 

Opportunity is provided for student teaching experience in an appropriate 
physical education setting. The student devotes one semester in the 
senior year to observation, participation, and teaching under a qualified 
supervising teacher in an approved Teacher Education Center or School. 
A University supervisor from the College of Health and Human Perform- 
ance visits the student periodically and confers with the student teacher, 
the cooperating teacher, and the center coordinator, giving assistance 
when needed. 

To be eligible for student teaching, students must: ( 1 ) have the recommen- 
dation of the university supervising teacher, and (2) have fulfilled all 
required courses for the B.S. degree except those approved by the 
department. The student must obtain a grade of "C " or better in all required 
courses. 

Uniforms 

Suitable uniforms, as prescribed by the department, are required for the 
activity classes, teaching practicum(s) and for student teaching. These 
uniforms should be worn only during professional activities. 

Kinesiological Sciences Major 

This curriculum offers students the opportunity to study the body of 
knowledge of human movement and sport, and to choose specific 
programs of study which allow them to pursue a particular goal related to 
the discipline. There is no intent to orient all students toward a particular 
specialized interest or occupation. This program provides a hierarchical 
approach to the study of human movement. First, a core of knowledge is 
recognized as being necessary for all students in the cuiriculum. These 
core courses are considered foundational to advanced and more specific 
courses. Secondly, at the options " level, students may select from two 
sets of courses which they believe will provide the knowledge to pursue 
whatever goal they set for themselves in the future. To further strengthen 
specific areas of interest, students should carefully select related studies 
courses and electives.

In addition to the above required courses, students must fulfill the 
University Studies Program. Minimum number of semester hours for 
degree is 120. 

Advising 

Advising is strongly recommended for all students majoring in Physical 
Education and Kinesiological Sciences although it is not mandatory. 
Students are assigned a permanent faculty member to assist them with 
registration procedures, program updates and other information. Stu- 
dents are advised to follow closely the program sheets which outline the 
order in which courses should be taken to allow proper progression 
through the degree programs. Departmental contacts are: Physical 
Education-Lynn Owens, 454-3072; Kinesiological Sciences-Dr. Robert 
Tyler, 454-6252. 

Honors and Awards 

The aim of the Honors Program is to encourage superior students by 
providing an ennched program of studies which will fulfill their advanced 
interests and needs. Oualified students are given the opportunity to 
undertake intensive and often independent studies wherein initiative. 
responsibility, and intellectual discipline are fostered. To qualify for 
admission to the program: 

1 . A freshman must have a "B" average in academic (college prep) 
curriculum of an accredited high school. 

2. A sophomore must have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 in all college 
courses of official registration. 

3. All applicants must have three formal recommendations concern- 
ing their potential, character, and other related matters. 

4. All applicants must be accepted by the Faculty Honors Committee. 
In completing the program, all honor students must: 

a. Participate in an honors seminar where thesis and other rele- 
vant research topics are studied. 

b. Pass a comprehensive oral examination covering subject matter 
background. 

c. Successfully prepare and defend the honors thesis. 

On the basis of the student's performance in the above program, the 
college may vote to recommend graduation without honors, with honors, 
or with high honors. 

Student Organizations 

All students enrolled in physical education as either teacher preparation 
or kinesiological sciences majors are eligible for membership in the 
Physical Education Student Association (PESA) The goals of PESAare: 
(1) to encourage participation in local, state, or regional, and national 
professional organization, (2) to provide opportunities for leadership 
through involvement in campus, community, and professional activities. 
(3) to promote the student and discussion of current issues, problems, 
and trends. (4) to assist in the acquisition of career skill competencies by 
application in relevant field expehences. (5) to foster a spmt of service to 
others through volunteer projects, and (6) to sponsor social activities and 
to develop effective professional relationships.

The Linguistics Department offers courses on many aspects of language 
study and an interdisciplinary ma)or leading to a Bachelor of Arts. 
Language is basic to many human activities and linguistics relates to many 
other disciplines which include v/otV. on language 

Work on language has provided one of the main research prot)es in 
philosophy and psychology for most of the 20th century It has taken on 
a new momentum in the last thirty years and language research has 



Management and Organization 135 



proven to be a fruitful means to cast ligfit on ftie nature of the human mind 
and on general cognitive capacity Several courses focus on a research 
program which takes as a central question: How do children master their 
native language? Children hear many styles of speech, vanable pronun- 
ciations and incomplete expressions, but. despite this flux of experience, 
they come to speak and understand speech effortlessly, instantaneously 
and subconsciously. Research aims to discover how this happens, how 
a persons linguistic capacity is represented in the mind, and what the 
genetic basis for it is. Students learn how various kinds of data can be 
brought to bear on their central question, how that question influences the 
shape of technical analyses. 

The Major 

The major program in Linguistics is designed for students who are 
pnmarily interested in human language per se. or in describing particular 
languages in a systematic and psychologically plausible way. or in using 
language as a tool to reveal some aspect of human mental capacities. 
Such a major provides useful preparation for professional programs in 
foreign languages, language teaching, communication, psychology, speech 
pathology, artificial intelligence (and thus computer work). 

Requirements for Major 

Students obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics by following one of two 
tracks: "Grammars and Cognition" or "Grammatical Theory and Lan- 
guage", In each case, students take a common core of LING courses: 
LING 200. 240. 311-312. 321-322. Beyond this core, students must 
specialize by completing an additional nine hours in LING plus one of the 
following: either eighteen hours from selected courses in HESP, PHIL and 
PSYC. or eighteen hours in a particular language. The specializations in 
detail are: 

Grammars and Cognition 

LING 440 — Grammars and Cognition 

Two 300/400 LING electives 

PHIL 466— Philosophy of Mind 

HESP 400 — Speech and Language Development in Children 

OR HESP 498 — Seminar in Psycholinguistics 
PSYC 442— Psychology of Language 
Three 300/400 electives in HESP. PHIL, PSYC or CMSC 

Grammatical Theory and a Language 

LING 410 — Grammars and tvleaning and LING 411 — Comparative 

Syntax OR 
LING 420— Word Formation and LING 412— Advanced Phonology 
LING 300/400 elective 

Five required courses in the language of specialization. 
A course in the history or structure of the language of specialization. 

When possible, the language of specialization should be the same as the 
one used to satisfy the college Foreign Language Requirement The 
specialization normally includes those courses that make up the desig- 
nated requirement for a major in the chosen language. Special provision 
may be made for students who are native speakers of a language other 
than English and wish to conduct analytical work on the grammar of that 
language. A student may also study grammatical theory and English: the 
eighteen hour concentration in English consists of courses in the history 
and structure of English to be selected in consultation with the student's 
Linguistics advisor. 

For a double major, students need twenty-seven credits in Linguistics, 
which normally include the LING courses for one of the two specializa- 
tions.

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

Requirements for Major 

Each mathematics major must complete, with a grade of C or better in 
each course, the following: 

1 . The introductory sequence MATH 1 40, 1 41 . 240, 241 or the corre- 
sponding honors sequence MATH 250. 25 1 . 

2. Eight MATH/MAPUSTAT courses at the 400 level or higher, at 
least four of which are taken on the College Park campus. The eight 
courses must include: 

(a) At least one course from MATH 401 . 403, 405. 

(b) At least one course from MATH 246, 414, 415, 436, 462. If 
MATH 246 is chosen, it will not count as one of the eight upper 
level courses. 

(c) One course from MAPL 460, 466. (This assumes knowledge 
of CMSC 1 1 or equivalent.) 

(d) MATH 41 (completion of MATH 250-251 exempts the student 
from this requirement and (e) below; students receive credit for 
two 400 level courses). 

(e) A one-year sequence which develops a particular area of 
mathematics in depth, chosen from the following list: 

(i) MATH 410-411 
(ii) MATH 403-404 
(iii) MATH 446-447 
(iv) STAT 410-420. 

(f) The remaining 400 level MATH/MAPUSTAT courses are elec- 
tives. but cannot include any of: MATH 400. 461 . 478-488. or 
STAT 464. EDCI451 may be used to replace one of the upper 
level elective courses Also, students with a strong interest in 
applied mathematics may, with the approval of the Under- 
graduate Office, substitute two courses (with strong mathe- 
matics content) from outside the Mathematics Department for 
one upper level elective course. 

3. One of the following supporting three course sequences. These 
are intended to broaden the student's mathematical experience. 
Other sequences might be approved by the Undergraduate Of- 
ficebut they would have to make use of mathematical ideas, 
comparable to the sequences on this list. 



136 Mathematics Education 



(a) i) PHYS 161.262.263 
11) PHYS 171,272. 273 

ill) PHYS 141. 142, and an upper level physics course ap- 
proved by the Mathematics Department 

(b) ENES110, PHYS 161, ENES 220 

(c) 1) CMSC 112, 113. andoneof CMSC211,220 
ii) CMSC 112. 150. 251

(e) ECON 201 , 203. and one of ECON 405 or 406 

(f) BMGT 220, 221.340. 

Within the Department of Mathematics there are a number of identifiable 
areas which students can pursue to suit their own goals and interests. 
They are briefly described below. Note that they do overlap and that 
students need not confine themselves 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, STAT 410, 411, 420. Students 
preparing for graduate school in mathematics should include 
MATH 403, 405, 41 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 
mathematics 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 particularly suited for students preparing to teach: 
MATH 406, 444, 463, STAT 400 and 401 . 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 440 and STAT 450. A stronger sequence is 
STAT 410. 420. 450. This offers a better understanding and wider 
knowledge of statistics and is a general purpose program (i.e.. 
does not specify one area of application). For economics applica- 
tions STAT 400. 401 . 440. 450, and MAPL 477 should be consid- 
ered. 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 41 and 420 give the best background, with 
STAT 41 1 . 440. 450 added at some later stage. 

4. Computational mathematics: there are a number of math courses 
which emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics in- 
cluding the use of the computer. They are MAPL 460, 466, 467, 
477, and MATH 475. Students interested in this area should take 
CMSC 1 1 2, 1 1 3 as early as possible, and CMSC 420, 21 1 are also 
suggested. 

5. Applied mathematics: the courses which lead most rapidly to ap- 
plications are the courses listed above in 3 and 4 and MATH 401 . 
414. 415. 436. 462, 463, 464. and MATH/MAPL 472 and 473. A 
student interested in applied mathematics should obtain, in addi- 
tion to a solid training in mathematics, a good knowledge of at least 
one area in which mathematics is currently being applied. Concen- 
tration in this area is good preparation for employment in govern- 
ment and industry or for graduate study in applied mathematics. 

Advising 

Advising for math majors is mandatory Students are required to sign up 
for an advising appointment at the math undergraduate office window 
(1 1 17 Mathematics Building), beginning the week before preregistration. 

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 

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 mathematics education. Participants are selected by the 
Departmental Honors Committee dunng 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 encour- 
aged and can be done in place of formal coursework. 

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

Participants in the University 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 Gen- 
eral Honors Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does not imply 
acceptance in the other. 

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

Awards 

Aaron Strauss Scholarships. Up to two are awarded each year to 
outstanding junior Math Majors. The recipient receives full remission of 
(in-state) tuition and fees. Applications may be obtained early in the spring 
semester from the Mathematics Undergraduate Office. 1117 Mathemat- 
ics Building. Higginbotham Prize, An award (up to $500) is made to an 
outstanding senior math major in the spring. 

Placement in Mathematics Courses 

The Department of Mathematics has a large offenng to accommodate a 
great variety of backgrounds, interests, and abilities. The department 
permits students to take any course for which they have the appropriate 
background, regardless of formal coursework. For example, students with 
a high school calculus course may be permitted to begin in the middle of 
the calculus sequence even if they do not have advanced standing. 
Students may obtain undergraduate credit for mathematics courses in any 
of the following ways: passing the appropriate CEEB 
Advanced Placement Examination, passing standardized CLEP exami- 
nations, 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 non- 
majors as well as majors, and carry credit in mathematics Students 
wishing to concentrate in the atxDve may do so by choosing an appropnate 
program under the Department of Mathematics.

The Major 



The primary function of the mechanical engineer is to create devices, 
machines . structures, or processes which are used to advance the welfare 
of people. Design, analysis, synthesis, testing, and control are the 
essential 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, com- 
puter interfacing, the static and dynamic behavior of fluids, system 
optimization, and engineering and production management. 

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

The Department of Meteorology offers a limited number of courses of 
interest to undergraduate students Undergraduate students interested in 
pursuing a bachelors degree program preparatory to further study or work 
in meteorology are urged to consider the Physical Sciences Program. It 
is important that students who anticipate careers in Meteorology 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 1 71 375 or the series PHYS 161. 262. 263: the mathematics senes 
MATH 140, 141.240.241 and either the series CHEM 103. 113orCHEM 
1 05, 115. See the section on course descriptions for electives in meteor- 
ology. 

Students who may be prepanng 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 counsel- 
ing from the Department of Meteorology advisor, the student wishing to 



graduate with an M.S. degree In meteorology may achieve that goal in five 
years from the inception of university studies.

The Major 



Microbiology is the branch of biology dealing with microscopic life-forms 
such as bacteria, yeast, molds, and viruses. As one of the important basic 
sciences, microbiology is the cornerstone of modern molecular biology 
and is particularly concerned with the principles of host-parasite interac- 
tions. From this perspective, microbiologists are helping to solve current 
world-wide problems in disease control and prevention, food production, 
and the environment. 

The aim of the B.S. program in Microbiology is to provide students with a 
thorough and ngorous education that will prepare them for careers in 
scientific research, business and industry, or in health-related professions 
such as medicine and dentistry. There are many employment opportuni- 
ties for microbiologists at all levels of education and professional develop- 
ment. Our graduates gain employment in governmental, academic, or 
industrial laboratories or they pursue advanced degree programs in 
graduate or medical schools.

The Major 

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 doctnne. 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, govern- 
ment, publishing and business management. With this in view the major 
in philosophy is designed to serve the interests ol the majonty of its 
students, who are preparing for careers outside of philosophy, as well as 
the interests of those who are preparing for graduate study in philosophy. 

Requirements for Major 

The department requirements for a ma)or in philosophy are as follows: ( 1 ) 
a total ol at least thirty hours in philosophy, not including PHIL 1 00 or PHIL 
386-7. (2) PHIL 271. 310, 320, 326, 341, and at least two courses 
numbered 399 or above, (3) a grade of C or higher in each course counted 
toward the fulfillment of the major requirement 

Fifteen hours of supporting courses are required to be selected in 
accordance with guidelines available in the Philosophy Department 
Office. 



Physical Education 141 



Courses for Non-Majors 

The following are among the courses giving the general student training

110 (Plato's Republic), PHIL 140 (Contemporary Moral Issues), PHIL 
170( Introduction to Logic), PHIL 173 and 174 (Logic and the English 
Language I and II). PHIL 236 (Philosophy of Religion), PHIL 243 (Philoso- 
phy 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 
Science I and II). PHIL 245 and 445 (Political and Social 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

phy of Cognitive Studies) 

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 Institute for 
Philosophy and Public Policy under the repeatable designations PHIL 308 
(Studies in Contemporary Philosophy) and PHIL 408 (Topics in Contem- 
porary Philosophy), cross-listed under similar headings in Government 
and Politics. Topics include such subjects as Business Ethics, Welfare 
and Distnbutive Justice. Responsibility of Professionals. Environmental

PHYSICAL SCIENCES PROGRAM 

College of Computer, Mathematical, and Physical 
Sciences 

2300 Mathematics Building, 454-4596 

Chair: Williams 
Astronomy: Matthews 
Chemistry: Harwood 
Computer Science: Atchison 
Engineering: Walston 
Geology: Stifel 
Mathematics: Alter 
Meteorology: Carton 
Physics: Hornyak 

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 meteorol- 
ogy; preprofessional students (prelaw, pre-medical); or students whose 



interests 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, chemistry, and mathematics, followed by a variety of courses 
chosen from these and related disciplines: astronomy, geology, meteor- 
ology, computer science, and engineering. Emphasis is placed on a broad 
program as contrasted with a specialized one. 

Students are advised by members of the Physical Sciences committee. 
This committee is composed of faculty members from each of the 
represented disciplines. Assignment of an 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. 

Curriculum 

The basic courses include MATH 140, 141 and one other math course for 
which MATH 141 is a prerequisite (11 or 12 credits); CHEM 103 and 113, 
or 1 05 and 1 1 5 (8 credits) : PH YS 1 62. 262, 263 ( 1 1 credits); or PHYS 1 71 , 
272. 273. 275, 276, 375 ( 1 4 credits) ; CMSC 110(4 credits); or 1 1 2/1 1 3 (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 1 71 /375. 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 twrenty-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 engineer- 
ing disciplines, subject to certain limitations. The twenty-four distributive 
credits 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 
concentration. A grade of C or better must be earned in both basic and 
distributive requirement courses. 

All Physical Science students must have a planned program of study 
approved by the Physical Sciences Committee. In no case shall the 
Committee approve a program which has less than 1 8 credits in the 
three distributive areas of the Physical Sciences program to be 
completed, at the time the program is submitted. Engineering courses 
used for one of the options must all be from the same department, e.g.. all 
must be ENAE courses, or a student may use a combination of courses 
in ENCH, ENNU, and ENMA. which are all offered by the 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 sophomore year, 
specifying the courses ttiey wish to use in satisfying the requirements of 
ttie major. Students who wish to depart from the stipulated curriculum may 
present their proposed program for approval by the Physical Sciences 
Committee. 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 (e.g.. MATH 1 1 5), 
some of the special topics courses designed for non-science students, as 
well as other courses. A complete listing of "excluded" courses is available

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 for undergraduate research. 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 majors. PHYS 1 01 . 1 02, 1 06. 1 1 1 . and 1 1 2 without a 
laboratory and PHYS 1 1 4 and 1 1 7 with laboratory are designed to satisfy 
the University Studies distribution requirements (PHYS 1 06 may be taken 
with the lab PHYS 1 07 to satisfy the lab requirement; PHYS 1 02 taken with 
the lab PHYS 1 03 similarly satisfies the lab requirement). PHYS 1 21 . 1 22. 
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 420 is a one- 
semester modern physics course for advanced students in science or en- 
gineering. 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.

tDlstinguished Scholar-Teacher 

Psychology can be classified as a biological science (Bachelor of Scier>ce 
degree) and a social science (Bachelor of Arts degree) and offers 
academic programs related to both of these fields The undergraduate 
curriculum in psychology is an introduction to the methods by which the 
behavior of humans and other organisms is studied, and the biological 
conditions and social factors that influence such behavior In addition, the 
undergraduate program is arranged to provide opportunities tor leamir>g 
that will equip qualified students to pursue further study of psychology and 
related fields in graduate and professional schools Students who are 
interested in the biological aspects of t>ehavior tend to choose a program 
leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, while those interested pnmanty 
in the impact of social factors on behavior tend to choose the Bachelor of 
Arts degree The choice of program is made in consultation with an 
academic advisor.

Lecturer: Manukian (Government and Politics) 

The Russian Area Studies Program offers courses leading to a Bachelor 
of Arts in Russian studies. Students in the program study Russian and 
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' 
awareness 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. Students may plan their curriculum so as to emphasize any one 
of these disciplines, thus preparing for graduate work either in the Russian 
area or In the discipline. 

The Major 

Students in the program must meet the general degree requirements of 
the University and college from which they graduate. They must complete 
twenty-four hours in Russian language and literature courses selected 
from among the following equivalent courses: RUSS 101, 102. 201. 202. 
301 . 302. 303. 321 .322, 401 . 402. 403. and 404. 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 appropriate 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 program) In 
one of the above-mentioned departments. It is also recommended that 
students who plan on doing graduate work in the social sciences — 



government and politics, economics, geography, and sociology — lake at 
least two courses in statistical methods. 

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

In addition to the courses in Russian language, literature, and culture 
taught in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Litera- 
tures, the following Russian Area courses are regularly offered. Students 
should check the Schedule of Classes each semester 

ECON 380 — Comparative Economic Systems

SCIENCE COMMUNICATIONS 

College of Computer, Mathematical, and Physical 
Sciences 

The University of Maryland offers several interdisciplinary approaches to 
the training of science communicators, ranging from specialization in one 
science or engineering discipline with background In communication to 
specializing 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; others may prefer writing 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 sciences 

A recommended approach would be to take the Physical Sciences 
program with a minor In journalism. The Physical Sciences Program 
consists of a basic set of courses in physics, chemistry, and mathemat- 
ics, followed by a variety of courses chosen from these and related 
disciplines: astronomy, geology, meteorology, and computer science. 

Writing about the life sciences 

A recommended approach would be tc take the Biological Sciences 
Program with a minor In journalism. The Biological Sciences Program 
includes work in botany, entomology, microbiology, and zoology, and 
introduces the student to the general principles and methods of each 
of these biological sciences. 

Writing about engineering 

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



146 Sociology 

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 familiarity with scientific thought and application.

The Major 

Sociology is the scientific study of society, its institutions, organizations, 
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 or the nature of sex roles at the individual level, to 
group processes, such as organizations designed to produce products or 
provide services, or 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 
services 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 administra- 
tive careers. 

Areas of specialization 

The program of instruction in Sociology offers courses in five major areas. 
The strong emphasis on advising in the department allows the student to 
combine these areas into individualized programs directed toward the 
student's specific goals. Specializations are available in social science 
research methodology, social psychology, social demography, social 
institutions, and inequality. These areas of specialization can be com- 
bined 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, psychology, business, etc. This program versatility and the 
rich experiential learning possibilities of the Washington metropolitan 
area combine to make the sociology curriculum a valuable career choice 

Requirements for Major 

Changes in major requirements are under review. Students should check 
with a departmental advisor for updated information. 

Students in sociology must complete forty-four' hours of departmental 
requirements, none of which may be taken pass/fail. Thirty two* of these 
hours are in sociology coursework which must be completed with a 



minimum 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 1 00 (Introduction). SOCY 
20r" (Statistics), SOCY 203 (Theory), and SOCY 202 (Methods)." 

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

SOCY 100 should be taken in the freshman or sophomore year followed 
by SOCY 203. Three hours of mathematics (STAT 100: MATH 110. 111. 
115,1 40, 220, or their equivalents) are required of majors as a prerequi- 
site of SOCY 201 . SOCY 202 follows SOCY 201 . 

The supporting course requirement tor majors is twelve 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 hous must be from 
the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences It is strongly recom- 
mended that the student work out an appropriate supporting sequence for 
the particular specialization with the department advisor.

hour) professional certification program wtiicti graduates students witti a 
Bachelor of Science degree in special education with full special educa- 
tion teacher certification in the State of Maryland and certification recip- 
rocity in twenty-eight other states. Students enter the program as pre- 
special education majors and enroll in courses which meet university and 
college requirements. At the same time, students take supporting course- 
work designed to provide an understanding of normal human develop- 
ment and basic psychological and sociological principles of human 
behavior. Special Education students receive specialized training in the 
following areas: language development; motor development; social- 
emotional development; normal human behavior; social and educational 
needs of the handicapped; diagnostic and educational assessment pro- 
cedures; instructional procedures and materials; curriculum develop- 
ment; classroom and ijehavior management; effective communication 
with the parents and families of handicapped children; community re- 
source planning; and local. State, and Federal laws concerning handi- 
capped children and youth. Graduates of the program are expected to 
master specific skills in each of these areas. 

Requirements for Major 

Admission to the department usually occurs during the sophomore year. 
Students accepted as Special Education majors take a two-semester 
sequence of generic special education courses and practicum experi- 
ences during the third year (Semesters V and VI). These courses provide 
the student with a solid foundation in theory and practice related to the 
education of all handicapped children across a wide range of ages and 
disabilities. During Semester VI. students select one of the following four 
areas of specialization: 

1 . Education of the Severely Handicapped (SH) 

2. Early Childhood Special Education (EC) 

3. Education of the Educationally Handicapped (EH) 

4. Secondary and Transition Special Education (ST) 

Students select two specialty areas and are accepted into one of their two 
specialty area choices. Coursework in each of these four areas is 
designed to develop expertise with a specific handicapped population. 
Students work directly with handicapped children or youth during each 
semester, leading up to student teaching during the last semester. 
Specialty area programs include twelve to fifteen hours of electives. 

Combined Bachelor's/Master's Program 

Selected undergraduate students majoring in special education will be 
eligible for dual application of credit to both the bachelor's and masters 
degrees. A student desiring graduate credit should apply for admission to 
the Graduate School during the last semester of the fourth year. If 
admitted to the Graduate School, the student may select up to twelve 
credits (four courses) of specified coursework from the fifth year of the 
undergraduate program to be applied simultaneously toward the credits 
required for the master's degree in special education at the University of 
Maryland. The selected courses may not include field practica or student 
teaching expenences. Students will be expected to fulfill supplemental re- 
quirements in the selected courses. To complete the master s degree, 
students must fulfill all Graduate School requirements for the degree, with 
the exception of the selected 400-level courses.

development and dissemination of knowledge concerning consumers 
and their near environment. It draws upon and applies the knowledge of 
and methods of the physical and social sciences, the arts, humanities, and 
law to improve the welfare of consumers. The department offers the 
Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy 
degrees. The faculty is multidisciplinary and have degrees in a variety of 
fields including textiles, human ecology, economics, engineering, chem- 
istry, psychology, and law. In addition to their teaching responsibilities, the 
faculty conduct research and serve the University community through 
participation in University committees. The faculty members, together 
with the graduate students 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 labo- 
ratories including a comfort research latjoratory , a computer-aided design 
laboratory, a computer-aided merchandising laboratory, and an historic 
textiles/costume collection. Students in Textiles and Consumer Econom- 
ics 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 requirements. The majors offered by the depart- 
ment are as follows:

products and combine 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 
experience 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 companies. 
They may work in product development, sales, merchandising, promo- 
tion, market research, and management Graduates completing the 
fashion merchandising option will be prepared for careers in retailing with 
department, specialty, or mass merchandising stores They may work in

It is designed to provide students with a background in textile matenals 
and textile science including the engineenng and finishing of fabrics tor 
specific end uses. Many students in the major go on to graduate study. 
Graduates are prepared lor careers in industry and government. They 
may work in research and testing laboratones, in consumer technical 
service and marketings programs, in quality control, in buying and product 
evaluation, and in consumer education and information programs.

The Major 

The Institute for Urban Studies offers a program of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Arts degree in urban studies. The program is designed to 
encourage students either (1 ) to direct their learning toward planning and 
management careers in metropolitan-area organizations, or (2) to study 
urbanization processes and methods as a means toward earning a 
general education. The undergraduate urban studies program is built on 
several introductory and methods courses that examine the city in its 
metropolitan, interregional, national, and international policy contexts. 
The problems of planning and management of the metropolis are stressed. 
Students are encouraged by the multidisciplinary urban studies faculty to 
take advantage of the rich and extensive cross-departmental resources at 
College Park and are expected to select an urban-related specialization 
from another discipline. Inasmuch as the Institute exists to serve the 
planning and management personnel and research needs of metropolitan 
organizations in the non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors, career 
guidance and advice on job placement have a high priority. Students are 
provided with advice in finding available vacancies, with resume writing 
and interview preparation. Urban studies majors are prepared to enter the 
professional arena or to continue with advanced study. 

Each year the Institute sponsors the Lefrak lectures. This lecture series 
features highly-reputed scholars and practitioners in urban planning or 
urban policy formulation issues of the information age. A feature of the 
series is to expand our understanding of urbanization driven by job 
creation in high-technology manufacturing and higher-level services.
