HISTORY 




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



i, 



A 



Just after the American Revolu- 
tion, the state of Maryland 

hed its lirsi two colleges at 
Chestertown and Annapolis. By 
the 1850s, at least thirty little 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 nearby 
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 expenmented with a dif- 
ferent agricultural crop. After the 
Ciul War the institution became a 
land-grant college, with small ap- 
propriations from Washington 
The little college began to grow 
about 1900 when agricultural ex- 
periments began to bnng prosperi- 
ty to Maryland, and when the col- 
lege expanded its offerings into 
engineering, business, and the

liberal arts In 1912 the old Gothk 
building burned, and Ihe state 
provided modem structures 
Women were admitted to the 
campus and graduate work 
began In l l| 20 the college combin- 
ed u ith the long-established pro- 
fessional schools of Baltimore and 
changed its name to the Universi- 
t\ .'i Maryland. Growth ac- 
celerated alter L935 when the 
politically astute football coach, 
H.C. 'Curley' Byrd became presi- 
dent, added scores ot new pro- 
grams, and won national football 
championships. In the 1950s and 
1960s, President Wilson H. Elkins 
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 
party school to one of academic 
integrity. In the 1970s and 1980s, 
the university's graduate and 
research programs have especially 
flourished. In 1988, the General 
Assemblv of Maryland combined 
six state colleges with the five 
campuses of the University of 
Maryland, 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-wide programs 
of study. A growing number of 
these departments and programs 
rank among the best in the nation. 
Today the University of Maryland 
at College Park stands, by any 
measure, as one of the leading in- 
stitutions of higher education in 
the world. 



EElRlfl 



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 




Opportunity^ tn! conducting 
research abound at the University 
ol Maryland c ollege Park and in 
the surrounding area, both tor 
faculty to advance their own ex- 
pertise and bring their insights 
back into the classroom, and for 
students to begin the exploration 
of their special interests with 
hands-on experience. On campus, 
special 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 laboratory, a full-scale low- 
velocity wind tunnel, computer- 
assisted cartographic laboratories, a 
psyc In 'linguistics laboratory, a 
Superconductivity Research 
Center, the Laboratory for Plasma 
and Fusion Studies, the Develop- 
mental Psychology Laboratory, the 
Center on Aging, the Systems 
Research Center, the Engineering 
Research Center, the Center for 
Renaissance and Baroque Studies, 
and the Agricultural Experiment 
Station. Off campus, University ol 
Maryland at College Park scientists 
placed a Low Energy Charged 
Particle experiment on board 

issed Neptune 
in August, 1989; others are involv- 
ed in the development of tin- 
world's largest array of radio 
telescopes housed at the Hat 
Creek Observatory ol the L niversi- 
tj Ol California at Berkeley L NIC P 
is leading a multi-institutional ex- 
cavation of the ruined city of 
Caesarea Mantima in Israel where 
Pontius Pilate lived while serving 
as Roman governor of ludea Aid 



Undergraduate students 
are encouraged to begin 
their own explorations 
through access to state 
of the art facilities and 
resources.

CHAPTER 1 



ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS AND 
APPUCATION PROCEDURES 



FRESHMAN ADMISSION 

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 
states, 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 results from either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the 
American College Test Assessment (ACT). 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 equivalent 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 1 992. In addition, students are strongly encouraged 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 
the university. Applicants should make sure that final high school transcripts 
are sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to enrolling. All 
offers of admission are contingent upon satisfactory completion of current 
work. 

Use of Mid-Year Grades 

The University of Maryland at College Park will consider mid-year grades 
for the senior year in high school if they are available when an application 
is initially considered. Early applicants may also be asked to submit a mid- 
year transcript to demonstrate senior year progress. The University of 
Maryland at College Park is unable to utilize the final high school marks 
in rendering decisions for applicants who are applying for admission 
directly from high school. 

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).

Standardized Admission Test Scores 

All freshman applicants must present results from either the ACT or the 
SAT. Test results must be submitted directly to the University of Maryland 
at College Park by the American College Testing Program for the ACT or 
the Educational Testing Service for the SAT. The applicant is strongly 
urged to include his or her social-security number when registering for 
either test. 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 1746 for applicants submitting 
the ACT, and is 581 4 for those submitting the SAT. The university strongly 
recommends that these tests be taken as early as possible, but no later 
than January of the year of application. Further information on both tests 
may be obtained from high school guidance counselors or directly from the 
American College Testing Program, Iowa City, Iowa 52243 and the 
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 

While standardized test scores and grade-point averages play an important 
role in the admission 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. 

To help students evaluate their chance for admission to the University of 
Maryland at College Park, a profile of students enrolled in the Fall 1990 
freshman class is provided. Since use of the ACT in the admission 
process will begin for students seeking admission in the Fall of 1 992, ACT 
score profile information is not yet available.

mandatory fees apply in full 

3. Early Admission: Although the University of Maryland at College Park 
generally requires applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to 
their first full-time registration, the university will admit a limited number 
of well-qualified students without high school diplomas. Successful 
applicants will have pursued a rigorous high school program and will 
have indicated exceptional performance and ability achieved over 
time. Students must be within two credits of high school graduation and 
have the commitment of the high school to award a diploma after 
successful completion of the freshman year at Maryland. To apply, 
students must submit a) the completed application and fee, b) high 
school transcript and SAT or ACT results, c) an essay explaining how 
they will benefit from the program, d) a letter of permission from the 
parents or guardian. 

Early admission students are eligible for on-campus housing, schol- 
arships based on academic achievement, and the University Honors 
Program. Early application is advised. 

4. Gifted Student Admission: The university admits a limited number of 
gifted students who have completed at least the seventh grade, have 
an SAT combined score of 1200, or the equivalent ACT score, and 
have a superior academic record. Students must have an initial 
conference with a member of the Undergraduate Admissions staff. 
The Admissions staff may. if it is deemed helpful to the admission 
decision, make referrals for further assessment to campus counseling 
services. 

5. Students With Learning Disabilities: The University of Maryland at 
College Park expects that all students admitted to its degree programs 
will fulfill all of the published requirements for graduation. These 
requirements are widely published, and include fundamental studies 
in English and mathematics, as well as other general education 
requirements of the University Studies or CORE programs, and all 
curriculum requirements of the major program and the degree-granted 
college or school. Students should not accept an offer of admission 
with the expectation that any requirement will be waived. 

High School Equivalence Examination (GED) 

Maryland residents who are at least 16 years of age and who have not 
received a high school diploma may be considered for admission, provided 
they have earned the high school General Education Equivalency (GED) 
certificate. In order to be admitted, the applicant must present an above 
average total score, as well as above average scores on each of the five 
parts of the test. 

Non-Accredited/Non-Approved Maryland High School 

There are specific academic requirements for applicants from non- 
accredited/non-approved Maryland high schools. Students from non- 
accredited/non-approved high schools who seek admission to the University 
of Maryland at College Park should contact the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions for information. 

Advanced Placement (AP) Credit 

The University of Maryland at College Park encourages applicants to seek 
AP credit so that academically successful students may move forward in 
their programs at an appropriate pace. However, credit is not granted for 
all exams offered by the College Board. Credits are accepted and courses 
are exempted, based on departmental approval, according to the chart 
that follows on the next page. Students should arrange to have their 
scores sent directly to the University of Maryland at College Park from the 
Educational Testing Service; the code is 5814. Students should also 
inform their advisors at Orientation that they anticipate receiving AP credit, 
because this information may affect their placement in subject-matter 
courses. 



Assignment of Credit 



If a student has already received AP credit at another institution, this credit 
will be reevaluated The score received must be equivalent to the 
minimum score the University of Maryland at College Park accepted at the 
time the test was taken: otherwise, the credit will not be eligible for transfer 
AP credits that are accepted are recorded as transfer credit on University 
of Maryland at College Park records, and figure in the total number of 
credits earned toward graduation Students may not receive credit for AP 
and satisfactorily completing an equivalent course at the University of 
Maryland at College Park or elsewhere If students earn credit in a course 
equivalent to an AP exam for which they also earned credit, the AP credit 
will be deleted from their records Students should check with their 
advisors for detailed information on the assignment of AP credit. 

Please note that the chart represents a general outline of AP credit. In all 
cases, credit is available tor grades of 3 or higher only, subject to 
departmental revaluation to take place in the spring of 1 991 All depart- 
ments reserve the right to reevaluate the content of exams and to change 
the assignment of credit and course equivalences. Any new exams 
offered after February 15, 1990 may or may not be evaluated by the 
appropriate department. Students should check with their advisor at 
orientation. 

Certain departments, particularly Math and Physics, have separate criteria 
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. 



Orientation Programs 



Upon final admission to the university the new student will receive 
materials about the Orientation and Registration Program. This program 
is offered by the Orientation Office, and all entering students are encour- 
aged to attend. The primary goals of the program are to inform the student 
about the university and to help the student register for the first semester. 
Through this program the entering student receives a personalized and 
individual introduction to the university plus individual advising concerning 
course selection for the first semester. During this Orientation Program, 
new students register for courses for their initial semester on campus. 

Parents also have an opportunity to learn about university life through the 
Parent Orientation Program. More information about this program may be 
found under "Orientation," elsewhere in this catalog. 

For more information, contact the Orientation Office, 1 1 95 Stamp Student 
Union, (301)314-8213. 



Admission to Limited-Enrollment Majors 

The policies for all LEP s are now under review. The following 
information is subject to change without notice. Updated informa- 
tion can be obtained from the office of Undergraduate Admissions at 
301-314-8378, or from the individual program. 

Certain colleges, schools, and departments within the university have 
taken steps to limit their enrollment in order to maintain quality programs.

College of Business and Management, Department of Economics, 
Department of Electrical Engineering, College of Engineering, De- 
partment of Housing and Design, College of Journalism, Department

teacher education majors. Enrollment is competitive, and except for a 
select number of outstanding freshmen, students must complete a par- 
ticular set of requirements before admission. 

Students not admitted directly as freshmen may still enroll in the Division 
of Letters and Sciences. Students are not guaranteed admission to their 
major of choice, although they may gain admission by meeting the 
requirements outlined by the particular program. To assess your chances 
of being admitted at a later date, contact an academic advisor within the 
appropriate program.

Preprofessional Programs and Options 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers preprofessional advising 
in Dental Hygiene, Dentistry, Law, Medical and Research Technology, 
Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Osteopathy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, 
Podiatry, and Veterinary Medicine. This advising will guide the student to 
the best preparation for advanced study and training in these fields. For 
additional information, see the description of "Campus-Wide Programs" in 
this catalog. 

Participation in a preprofessional program at the University of Maryland at 
College Park does not guarantee admission to another branch of the 
university or to another institution. 

The Radiologic Technology program previously offered at the University 
of Maryland at Baltimore (UMAB) is no longer available. Students choosing 
the preprofessional program in this field will receive training that should 
prepare them for transfer to other institutions. 

Students who have already earned more than thirty semester hours at 
anothercollege-level institution, and who seek admission to preprofessional 
programs in Nursing, Pharmacy, Dental Hygiene, Physical Therapy, and 
Medical and Research Technology, should contact the academic advisor 
for the preprofessional programs at the University of Maryland at College 
Park before filing an application for the University of Maryland at College 
Park. Please address correspondence to the academic advisor of the 
specific preprofessional program to which you are applying; for example, 
Advisor for Pre-Nursing Program, 3103 Turner Laboratory, University of 
Maryland. College Park, MD 20742. 

Special Applicants 

Golden Identification Card Program 

The University of Maryland at College Park participates in the University 
of Maryland's Golden Identification Card Program. The institution will 
make available courses and various services to persons who are 60 years 
of age or older, who are legal residents of the State of Maryland, and who 
are retired (not engaged in gainful employment for more than 20 hours per 
week). When persons eligible for this program are admitted to the 
university, they register on a space-available basis for credit courses as 
regular or special students in any session, and receive a Golden Identifi- 
cation card. Golden ID students must meet all course pre-requisite and co- 
requisite requirements Golden ID students are not eligible for Consortium 
courses with the waiver of fees. The University of Maryland at College 
Park tuition and most other fees are waived Golden ID students may 
register for a maximum of three courses perterm. The Golden Identification 
Card will entitle eligible persons to certain academic services, including 
the use of the libraries, as well as certain other non-academic services. 
Such services will be available during any session only to persons who 
have registered for one or more courses for that session. Golden ID 
students also have the opportunity to become involved with the Golden ID 
Student Association which provides cultural and social events, course 
recommendations, and peer advising. Additional information may be 
obtained from Undergraduate Admissions, Mitchell Building, 314-8385, or 
the Golden ID Student Program. 01 19 Hombake Library, 405-3956. 

Minority Students 

In keeping with the University Affirmative Action Program, special con- 
sideration will be given to minority students who demonstrate the potential 
for academic success. Minority students are urged to contact both an 
admissions counselor and Minority Student Education, 1101 Hombake 
Library, (301)405-5616. 



Non-Degree (Special) Students 



Applicants who qualify for admission but do not desire to work toward a 
baccalaureate degree may be admitted as non-degree-seeking (special) 
students. 

Special students who have received a baccalaureate degree are advised 
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. 

Non-degree seeking (special) students who do not have a baccalaureate 
degree must submit transcripts and meet regular admission standards 
Transcripts are not required from students with baccalaureate degrees. 
Because of space limitation, several departments require permission be 
given in advance to enroll as a non-degree student Please contact 
Undergraduate Admissions for further information. 

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, 314-7693. 

Students returning to the University of Maryland at College Park after a 
separation of five calendar years may petition their appropriate 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 ADMISSION 

The University of Maryland values the contribution international students 
make to the College Park academic community. Therefore, applications 
from the international community are welcomed. However, due to the 
differences between foreign educational systems and education in the 
United States, international students will face a number of challenges in 
adapting to study at the university. Students who have received, through- 
out 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 demonstrate, in their secondary level studies, that they have 
successfully completed a diversity of subjects representing language, 
mathematics, physical or biological science and social sciences Because 
of the keen competition at the University of Maryland, we 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-immigrants, 
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 application 
and fee for admission; 2) copies of official secondary school records, 
including any secondary external examinations, such as the GC.E 
"Ordinary" level examinations, or the Baccalaureate; 3) transcripts of any 
university level studies completed in the United States or elsewhere 
Original documents written 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) or American College Test Assessment (ACT) and submit the 
results. All freshman applicants to the College of Engineenng, regardless 
of where they have studied, must present SAT scores. Admission to 
limited-enrollment majors (see "Admissions to Limited-Enrollment Maiors" 
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 I-20 form from the office of International 
Education Services (IES); this form is needed to secure, transfer, and 



exlend the Student visa after applicants have certified their financial 
support and submitted evidence of satisfactory English proficiency to the 
IES 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 lor international 
students that is held the week prior to registration 

English Proficiency 

All applicants must demonstrate a satisfactory level of English proficiency 
Such proficiency is necessary to pursue a full course of study at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. All non-native speakers of English 
must submit a score report from the Test of English as a Foreign Language 
(TOEFL) during the application process. Non-native speakers who have 
received a degree from a tertiary level institution in the U.S.. English- 
speaking Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, or 
Commonwealth Caribbean are exempt from the TOEFL requirement. 
Native speakers of English are defined as those educated entirely in the 
U.S., English-speaking Canada. United Kingdom. Ireland. Australia, New 
Zealand, or Commonwealth Caribbean Applicants who are unsure as to 
whether or not they need to take the TOEFL should contact the office of 
International Education Services. Non-native speakers of English who 
have graduated from U.S. high schools must submit TOEFL examination 
results. For information and a TOEFL application brochure, write to: 
TOEFL, Box 2896, Princeton, NJ 08540.

TRANSFER ADMISSION 

Criteria: A student who has attended any regionally accredited institution 
of higher education following graduation from high school and attempted 
twelve 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 at this institution, 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 All students with grade-point averages below 
3 will be considered on a space available basis In accordance with 
Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer policies, applicants from 
Maryland community colleges are, in some instances, given special 
consideration, and, when qualified, can be admitted 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 the 
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 institution. Students who were special or non-degree 
students must contact the admissions office of the receiving institution. 
Undergraduate students who are not eligible to return to their original 
institution 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 institution 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 criteria outlined in the 
general statement above. The university subscribes to the policies 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 institution consider 
such courses part of the student's curricular 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 period 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. 



8 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



Maryland Community 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 accept- 
able 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 

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

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 Association of Colleges and Schools; 
Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges; Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools; Western Association of Schools and Colleges), 
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 University of 
Maryland at College Park. The applicability 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 appropriate dean. 

Foreign Language Credit 

Transfer of foreign language credit is acceptable in meeting requirements. 
Prospective students should consult the appropriate sections of this 
catalog to determine the specific requirements of various colleges and 
curricula. 

Advanced Placement Credit 

If Advanced Placement credits are already on a student record from an 
institution outside the University of Maryland System, the score must be 
equivalent to a minimum university score or the credit will not be consid- 
ered 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 

Authorization 

These Student Transfer Policies, as adopted by the Maryland Higher 
Education Commission, will supersede the transfer policies in effect since 
1972, as modified and adopted in 1979. These policies shall be effective 
and applicable to students first enrolling in Maryland public post-secondary 
educational institutions in Fall 1990, and thereafter. 

Applicability of Policies 

These transfer policies and procedures apply to admission, credit trans- 
fer, program articulation, and related matters for undergraduate students 
who wish to transfer between Maryland public colleges and universities 
The Maryland Higher Education Commission also recommends them to 
Maryland independent institutions. 

Rationale 

A major premise of the Maryland public higher education system is that a 
student should be able to progress from one segment of higher education 



to another without loss of time or unnecessary duplication of effort. The 
Maryland Higher Education Commissions objective is to ensure that a 
student who intends to complete a baccalaureate degree and who begins 
his or her work at a community college, is able to move towards the 
completion of that degree by transferring to a baccalaureate degree- 
granting institution without loss of credit or unnecessary duplication of 
course content. At the same time, the Commission recognizes that some 
students change their educational objectives as they progress in their 
studies, indeed, sometimes because their studies expose them to new 
ideas and possibilities. These students should also be able to complete 
their general education courses and have them transfer without loss of 
credit. 

One means of accomplishing this objective is through the development of 
recommended transfer programs between two- and four-year institutions 
A recommended transfer program, developed by careful planning and 
agreement between specific two- and four-year institutions, is that rec- 
ommended sequence of courses which a student takes at a community 
college which will constitute the first two years of a baccalaureate degree 
program at a Maryland public institution of higher education. 

The Maryland Higher Education Commission recognizes that students 
select institutions of higher education for a variety of reasons. These 
policies also recognize that each Maryland public college or university has 
a separate and distinct mission, and that each has the responsibility to 
establish and maintain standards of expectations for courses, programs, 
certificates, and degrees consistent with that mission. Nevertheless, 
effective and efficient transfer of credits between and among these 
institutions must occur within the larger context of the statewide structure 
of baccalaureate and community college education. 

Successful and harmonious articulation depends upon 

firm agreement that the needs of the student should be a pnmary 
concern in developing articulation procedures, while maintaining 
the integrity of educational programs; 

the establishment of clear and equitable policies to assure opti- 
mum accessibility for transfer students with minimal loss of credits 
and minimal duplication of course content; 

mechanisms for evaluating and resolving difficulties students may 
encounter in moving from one school to another; 

free and continuous communications among institutions; 

mutual respect for institutions and their missions; 

adaptability, within a context of understanding that changes affect 
not only the institution making changes but also the students and 
institutions impacted by the changes; 

free exchange of data among institutions; and 

timely exchange of information relative to students' progress. 

The intended principal benefactor is the student, whose uninterrupted 
progress towards a degree — based on successful academic perfor- 
mance — is best served by the open exchange of current information about 
programs, and is best protected by a clear transfer policy pertaining to the 
public segments of higher education in Maryland. 

The State's interests are similarly served through such a policy, which 
results in the optimal use of its higher education resources by reducing the 
costly duplication that results in the needless waste of the valuable time 
and effort of Maryland students, faculty, and administration. 

Institutional interests and missions are also protected by this systematic 
approach, which permits them to incorporate into their academic planning 
more accurate projections about the programmatic backgrounds of 
transferring students. 

In more specific ways this document's purpose is to: 

Define broad 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; 

Provide a mechanism for continuous evaluation of programs, 
policies, procedures, and relationships affecting transfer of stu- 
dents; 

Provide such revisions as are needed to promote the academic 
success and general well-being of the transfer student; 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 9 



Provide a system o( appeals beginning on the campus level to 
resolve difficulties that students experience in transfer 

While policies and procedures can be established which facilitate the 
transfer of students, it is the responsibility of the student, as the principal 
in the process, to know and follow the procedures defined 

I. POLICIES 

The fair and equal treatment of "native" and "transfer" students is the 
fundamental principle of these policies. 

A Admission of Transfer Students 

1 . Associate of Arts Degree Holders (or those with 56 or more credit 
hours): 

a. Students who have completed the Associate of Arts degree or 
students who have completed 56 semester hours of credit with 
a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher on a 
scale of 4.0, in either case in college and university parallel 
courses, shall not be denied direct transfer to an institution. 
(Only the last grade received in a course repeated by the 
student shall be used in computing a cumulative grade point 
average.) 

If the number of students seeking admission exceeds the 
number that can be accommodated in a particular professional 
or specialized program, or certain circumstances exist which 
limit the size of an upper division program or the total enrollment, 
admission decisions will be based on criteria developed and 
published by the receiving institution, providing fair and equal 
treatment for native and transfer students. 

b. Courses taken at a Maryland community college as part of a 
recommended transfer program oriented toward a baccalaureate 
degree shall be applicable to related programs at a Maryland 
public institution granting the baccalaureate degree. 

c. The Associate of Arts degree (or those with 56 or more credit 
hours) shall meet the lower level general education requirements 
at the receiving institution. In cases where the general educa- 
tion requirements at the receiving institution exceed those of 
the sending institution, the transfer student will be required to 
take no more than the same number of lower division general 
education credits than those required of the native student. 

d. The determination of the major program requirements for a 
baccalaureate degree, including courses in the major taken in 
the lower division, shall be the responsibility of the faculty of the 
institution awarding the degree. The receiving institution may 
set major requirements which may fulfill general education 
requirements simultaneously. However, in developing its lower 
division course work, the degree-granting institution would be 
expected systematically to exchange information with the com- 
munity college to assure the transferability of credits into that 
program. 

2. Transfer Without an Associate of Arts Degree (or fewer than 56 
credit hours): 

a. Students from Maryland community colleges who were ad- 
missible to the four-year institution as high school seniors, and 
who have attained a cumulative 2.00 average in college/ 
university parallel courses shall be eligible for transfer to the 
institution regardless of the number of credits. 

b. Students who were not admissible as high school seniors, but 
who have earned sufficient credits to be classified by the 
receiving institution as sophomores, must meet the stated 
admission criteria of the receiving institution. Such requirements 
for admission may vary by program, according to criteria 
developed and published by the receiving institution. Such 
admission criteria shall provide for equal access for native and 
transfer students. 

d. Transferable courses defined as meeting the general educa- 
tion requirements at the sending institution. 

B. Credit Transferability 

1 . Traditional Credit: 



a. Credit earned at any public institution in Maryland shall be 
transferable to any other public institution provided: 

the credit is from a college or university parallel course or 
program; 

the grades in the block of courses transferred average 2.0 or 
higher: and 

the acceptance of the credit is consistent with the policies of the 
receiving institution governing students following the same 
program. (For example, if a "native" student's "D" grade in a 
specific course is acceptable in a program, then a grade of "D" 
earned by a transfer student in the same course is also 
acceptable in the same program.) 

b. Credit earned in or transferred from a community college 
normally shall be limited to half the baccalaureate degree 
program requirement, but in no case more than 70 credits, and 
to the first two years of the undergraduate educational experi- 
ence. 

2. Non-Traditional Credit: 

a. The assignment of credit for AP, CLEP, or other nationally 
recognized, standardized examination scores presented by 
transfer students will be determined according to the same 
regulations that apply to native students in the receiving insti- 
tution, and such assignment must be consistent with the State 
minimum requirements. 

b. Transfer of credit 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: 

technical courses from career programs 

course credit awarded through articulation agreements with 
other segments or agencies 

credit awarded for clinical practica or cooperative education 
experiences 

credit awarded for life and work experiences. 

The basis for the awarding of the credit shall be indicated on the 
student's transcript. 

c. The baccalaureate degree granting institution shall inform 
transfer students of the procedures through which coursework 
for which there is no clear equivalency can be validated, such 
as ACE recommendations, portfolio assessment, credit through 
challenge examinations and satisfactory completion of the next 
course in sequence in the academic area. 

d. The baccalaureate degree-granting institution shall use valida- 
tion procedures when a transferring student successfully 
completes a course at the lower division level which the degree- 
granting institution offers at the upper division level, and once 
validated, the credits earned for the course shall be substituted 
for the upper division course. 

C. Program Articulation 

Recommended transfer programs will be developed through con- 
sultation between the two institutions that allow students aspiring 
to the baccalaureate degree to plan their programs. These pro- 
grams will constitute freshman/sophomore level coursework to be 
taken at the community college in fulfillment of the receiving 
institution's lower division coursework requirement.

ments in effect at the time when the student was identifiable as 
pursuing the recommended transfer program at the sending 
institution. These conditions are applicable to the student who 
has been continuously enrolled at the community college by

1 . The progress of students who transfer from two-and four-year 
institutions within the State shall be reported annually by the 
receiving institution to each community college and to the 
Secretary of the Maryland Commission of Higher Education 
The Commission will share the results with the State Board for 
Community Colleges. Such information shall include longitudi- 
nal reports on the subsequent academic success of enrolled 
transfer students, including graduation rates, by major subject 
areas. Comparable information on the progress of native stu- 
dents shall be included. 

2. Each public institution of higher education shall designate a 
Transfer Coordinator, who serves as a resource person to 
transfer students at either the sending or receiving campus, and

Determination of In-State Status for Admission. Tuition, and Charge 
Differential Purposes: See Appendix M for the complete text of this 
policy. 

An initial determination of in-state status for admission, tuition, and 
charge-differential purposes will be made by the university at the time a 
student's application for admission is under consideration. The determi- 
nation made at that time, and any determination made thereafter shall 
prevail in each semester until the determination is successfully challenged . 
Students may challenge their classification by submitting a petition. 
Petitions are available in the office of Undergraduate Admissions. The 
deadline for meeting all requirements for in-state status and for submitting 
all documents for reclassification is the last day of late registration for the 
semester if the student wishes to be classified as an in-state student. 

The volume of requests for reclassification may necessitate a delay in 
completing the review process. It is hoped that a decision in each case will 
be made within ninety days of receipt of a request for redetermination and 
all necessary documentation. During this period of time, or any further 
period of time required by the university, fees and charges based on the 
previous determination must be paid. If the determination is changed, any 
excess fees and charges will be refunded. 

Petitions, related documents and questions concerning the policy of the 
University of Maryland for the determination of in-state status should be 
directed to the Campus Classification Office, 1116 Francis Scott Key Hall,

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 procedures 
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. 

College Park is in the process of securing administrative approval to 
sponsor a low cost commercial ten month budget plan. TUITION PLAN, 
for the combined fall and spring semesters. Also, a single semester three 
payment plan is available, albeit somewhat more expensive. Information 
regarding these plans is available by calling 1-800-343-091 1 . 

All 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 services 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. 

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,

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.

delinquent student who has not settled his or her student account prior to 
that semester, such registration will be canceled and no credit will be 
earned for the semester.

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 individuals 
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.

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 canceled 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. 



Military Call-Up 

Students who must withdraw from the University as a result of being called 
for military duty should contact the Office of Records and Registration 
immediately, and should have available a copy of their orders The 
University of Maryland at College Park has procedures to ensure an 
orderly process of separation for these students. 



FINANCIAL AID 

Office of Student Financial Aid 

2130 Mitchell Building. 314-8313 

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 assistance 
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 for financing attendance 
at the University of Maryland 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 otherwise be able to 
pursue college studies. 

Financial aid funds are limited; therefore, all new, readmitted, and returning 
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 
application. However, students will not receive final consideration for 
aid until they are admitted to a degree program. 

3. Mail the form to the College Scholarship Service no later than January 
15, so that the service's 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, 1991 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. For most types of aid. students must register for and 
attempt at least 12 credit hours through schedule adjustment each 
semester in order to receive the full financial aid award. Please refer to the 
standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress when considering dropping 
below 12 credit hours for any given semester. 

Citizenship Status 

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

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 Opportunity 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." 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 15 



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. 

Financial Aid Transcripts. Any student who has attended another post- 
secondary institution must submit a financial aid transcript regardless of 
whether he or she received financial assistance or not. 

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 Anti-Drug 
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-University 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 the 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 
renewed from year to year. All students requesting aid must reapply by 
submitting a new FAF annually . Such reapplication must indicate continued 
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 cir- 
cumstances 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 Maryland for the 1990-91 
academic year was as follows: 

Dependent Student Living on Campus 

Tuition (in-state) $2270.00 out-of-state: $6326.00 

Room 2818.00 

Board 2100.00 

Incidentals 1500.00 

Books 450.00 



TOTAL 



$9138.00 



$13,194.00 



Notes: 1. The above budget is subject to change for the 1991-92 
academic year. 
2. To determine 1991-92 budget, add approximately 4%-5% to 
costs.

academically talented students attending the University of Maryland at 
College Park. The following is a list of such awards, several of which are

Need-Based Financial Assistance 
Grants 

Students at the University of Maryland at College Park will be considered 
for grant funds when they submit a completed Financial Aid Form by our 
priority deadline (February 1 5). 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. 

Pell 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 (SAR) from the federal Pell Grant Processor. 
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 up to a maximum of 5 years. Eligibility for the program ends once the 
first undergraduate degree is received. 

Supplemental 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 and attempt twelve (12) credit hours per semester through 
schedule adjustment. 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 15th 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 15, 
the priority deadline for OSFA. 

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 an 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 who demonstrate 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 four years of repayment, and increases to 10% 
beginning with the fifth year of repayment. 

Applications for 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 for 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 The 
maximum that parents and independent students may borrow in a year is 
$4,000. The interest rate is variable, but will not exceed 12%. 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 of 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 their 
course of study while employed. Underthe Work-Study Program, students 
may work up to twenty hours per week during the school year and up to 
a maximum of forty hours per week during 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. 314-8051. 

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 tnat they can seek employment 
best suited to their free time. Contact McKeldin Library Personnel Office. 
314-4156.

Job Referral Service. 3 1 20 Hornbake Library, serves without charge as a 
clearinghouse for students seeking part-time work and for employers

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid 

Federal legislation governing the administration of the Pell Grant, the 



Perkins Loan (formerly National Direct Student Loan), the Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), the College Work-Study (CWS). 
the Stafford Loan (formerly 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 subject 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. 

What Students Must Do To Keep Aid 

1. All undergraduate and graduate students must earn a basic annual 
credit minimum. The following chart will be used to determine eligibility 
for renewal/receipt of federal student financial aid funds: 

Undergraduate Students 

Full-time Undergraduate Students 

First-year students must earn 15 credits per year. 
Second-year students must earn 18 credits per year. 
Third-year and up students must earn 24 credits per year.

Third-year and up students must earn 9 credits per year 

Graduate students registered for dissertation or thesis hours are 
required to complete 48 units per year rather than a minimum number 
of credit hours. 

2. Federal aid recipients must maintain the required grade point average 
necessary to continue as degree seeking students at the University of 
Maryland at College Park. Therefore, you must maintain academic 
standing consistent with the institution's graduation standards as 
defined by the Registrar and the Graduate School as outlined in the 
Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs.

How to Regain Eligibility 

If a student is denied aid because of lack of progress, courses must be 
taken at the student's own expense until he or she has earned the 
minimum credit hours required, or earned the required grade point 
average. At the time the student fulfills the Standards of Satisfactory 
Progress, the student must notify the Office of Student Financial Aid by 
submitting an appeal form to us indicating that the requirements have 
been met. 

Appeals 

Students who do not comply with the Standards of Satisfactory Progress 
may submit a written appeal to the Office of Student Financial Aid if 
extenuating circumstances have affected their academic progress. The 
written appeal should include appropriate third-party documentation. If 
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. 



Complications . . . Consequences 

If you do not meet these standards, your aid will be canceled. Should you 
submit a written appeal and if we approve it based on your academic 
record and the unusual circumstances described, your eligibility may be 
reinstated. If you are not eligible for aid because you did not pass the 
minimum number of required credits, eligibility may be reinstated after 
successful completion of the deficient credits at your own expense Aid will 
be reinstated on a funds available basis 

Not all credits count toward the minimum credit requirement; only grades 
of A, B,C, D, Pass, or Satisfactory will count The following credits are not 
counted: "F" (Fail), "I" (Incomplete), "W (Withdrawal). Unsatisfactory, 
Audit, and Repeats. 

The annual credit requirement and grade point average applies to you 
whether or not you receive financial aid. 

For more information on specific Standards of Satisfactory Academic 
Progress issues, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid If you 
choose to withdraw from a class or are in danger of not passing a class, 
you should contact this office to see how your financial aid will be affected.

Administrative Dean for Summer Programs 

2103 Reckord Armory, 405-6551 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers two six-week summer 
sessions each year in addition to regular fall and spring semesters. The 
Academic Calendar in the front of this catalog or the Schedule of Classes 
provide exact dates. New freshman applicants who have met the regular 
University admission requirements for fall enrollment may begin their 
studies during 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 during the fall and spring semesters. 

The Summer Cultural and Recreational Program is an important part of 
"Summer at Maryland " The Maryland Summer Institute for the Creative 
and Performing Arts offers a series of programs in art, dance, drama, film 
and music, and outstanding performers in these media appear on the 
^campus. 

Facilities for most sports and an intramural program in several team and 
individual sports are available to the students. For additional information, 
write for a Summer Programs catalog. Administrative Dean for Summer 
Programs, The University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. 



CAMPUS RESOURCES AND SERVICES 



Academic Achievement Programs 

0111 Chemistry Building, 405-4736 

Intensive Educational Development: Provides comprehensive, struc- 
tured support services to first- and second-year students currently enrolled 
at the University of Maryland at College Park, whose academic profile 
would suggest that they might be at retention risk without this support. IED

upper-level IED students. Support services include math and English 
review, tutoring, and study skills enhancement instruction. 

Prospective students attempting to gain admission to the University by

Academic Advising 

Undergraduate Advising Center: 1117 Hornbake Library, 3 1 4-84 1 8 
Health Professions Advising: 405-2793 
Credit-By-Exam/ Advanced Placement/CLEP: 314-8418 

Academic advising is available to all students at the University of Maryland 
at College Park. Advising is an essential part of an undergraduate's 
educational experiences. 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 
offerings 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 
planning 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 Year of Registration at the University of 
Maryland at College Park are urged to meet with an advisor pnor 
to scheduling their classes Some academic units mandate advising 
during the first year. 

Students Receiving an Academic Warning at the end of any 

semester will be urged in writing to meet with an advisor pnor 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 for academic reasons 
must, as a condition of reinstatement, meet with an academic 
advisor. According 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. 



Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 21 



the fact ol the meeting must be acknowledged/recorded by an 
advisor before registration can be completed. The intent is to 
require advising ot those students who have a record ot consecu- 
tive withdrawals, withdrawal during a semester following probation, 
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 re- 
quirements 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 
advising. 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 
Undergraduate Advising Center, 1117 Hornbake Library, 314-8418. 

Division of Letters and Sciences 

Many university students have decided to be "undecided" about their 
majors and want help in defining their goals. Other students have plans to 
enter a particular program but are not certain they will meet the require- 
ments. 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 Division of Letters and Sciences. Working 
with the division's 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 for solving 
problems they encounter. 

The Division of Letters and Sciences staff works closely with the Career 
Development Center, the Counseling Center, various tutoring services, 
and advisors from academic departments and programs across campus 
to provide a coordinated advising network which helps students design 
their personal academic plans, as follows: 

Choosing a Major: Providing information and referral to the wide 
range of academic programs available to students and coordinating 
with services offered by the Career Development Center, the 
Counseling Center, and the academic colleges and departments. 
The Division of Letters and Sciences helps students select majors 
which best meet their interests and further their career goals. 

Pre-professional Advising: Offering pre-professional advising 
for pre-law students (314-8418), and referral for students with 
interest in the health professions. For further information on pre- 
professional advising for pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-allied 
health students, consult the entry on Campus-wide Programs in 
this catalog, or call 405-2793. 

Information and Referral: Maintaining a central file of information 
about academic programs and requirements and academic sup- 
port services at the University of Maryland at College Park. 
Workshops designed to help students select majors and courses 
are offered regularly during the pre-registration period. 

Troubleshooting: Helping individual students identify and solve 
specific advising problems and difficulties with administrative pro- 
cedures, such as transfer credit evaluation, schedule revisions, 
changing majors, errors in academic records, etc. 

Policy Interpretation: Keeping students and advisors informed 
about new academic policies and helping to interpret existing 
policies and practices and determine under what conditions ex- 
ceptions might be granted. 

Credit-by -Exam. CLEP, Advanced Placement (314-8418): 

Administering the campus-wide program of credit-by-examination

To become a student senator, students must be elected through their 
college or school, or the Office of Undergraduate Studies. Elections are 
held every year during the spring semester. Students are also encouraged 
to participate in a series of senate standing committees, such as Student 
Affairs and Human Relations. These committees draw membership from

or the faculty member(s) involved. However, written requests for 
adjustments to a curriculum on the basis of learning disability must 
be made to the Dean for Undergraduate Studies in the case of

special aids or adaptations may be required by students with 
disabilities. Instructional, testing, and evaluation adjustments may 
be made by the faculty member(s) involved after the specific 
learning disability has been identified, verified, and discussed with 
DSS. The Deans will make the final decisions regarding requests 
for adjustments to curriculum, in consultation with DSS and the

learning proposal to the Experiential 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 
internship programs. ELP will help students match their interests 
with internship options and the nearly 1 ,500 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 Maryland 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 
Sciences. 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 many opportunities exist in the computer 
science and business fields, 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 
GPA in the 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 spring semester should 
apply in the fall. Those interested in co-oping beginning summer or 
fall should apply in the spring. See the College of Engineering entry 
in this catalog 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 99 state-supported 
colleges and universities in the NSE consortium for a seme? 'er or 
academic year. The campuses vary and are located throughout the 
continental U.S. and in Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Alaska, Guam, 
and Puerto Rico. Students often participate in NSE for a variety 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 



24 Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 



admissions process and assurance of transferability of credit 
Exchanges should be completed prior to the student's final thirty 
hours of coursework at the College Park campus. 

Maryland students pay tuition and mandatory fees to UMCP and 
room and board and miscellaneous fees 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. 

Students must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the time of application 
and exchange. Students may not exchange during their final thirty 
credits.

offers two programs of English language instruction for those 
who are not native speakers of English. For those students who 
are admissible but require part-time English instruction, the 
Maryland English Institute offers semi-intensive (part-time) 
instruction. Semi-intensive study would also require the student 
to enroll in a half-time academic program. Applicants who need 
more instruction take an intensive (full-time) program before 
beginning an academic program. These programs are offered 
on a semester basis and are also available during the summer.

Judicial Programs 

2117 Mitchell Building, 314-8204 

(To report instances of academic dishonesty, 314-8206) 

General Policy. The primary purpose for the imposition of discipline in the 
university setting is to protect the campus community and to create an 
atmosphere of personal freedom, in which the rights of all students and 
staff members are fully protected. 

Students may be accountable to both civil authorities and to the university 
for acts which constitute violations of law and of university regulations. 
Likewise, an act constituting a violation of the resident hall contract and 
university regulations may result in removal from university housing, the 
imposition of disciplinary sanctions, or both. 

General Statement of Student Responsibility. Students are expected 
to conduct themselves at all times in a manner consistent with the 
university responsibility of ensuring to all members of the community the 
opportunity to pursue their educational objectives, and of protecting the 
safety, welfare, rights, and property of all members of the community and 
of the university itself. Students should consult the Code of Student 
Conduct, Appendix C, for further information. 

Office of Judicial Programs. The Office of Judicial Programs directs the 
efforts of students and staff members in matters involving student disci- 
pline. The responsibilities of the office include: (1) determining the 
disciplinary charges to be filed against individual students or groups of 
students; (2) interviewing and advising parties involved in disciplinary 



26 Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 



proceedings; (3) supervising, training, and advising the various judicial 
boards; (4) reviewing the decisions of the judicial boards; (5) maintaining 
all student disciplinary records; and (6) collecting and disseminating 
research and analysis concerning student conduct. 

Student judicial board members are invited to assume positions of 
responsibility in the university discipline system in order that they might 
contribute their insights to the resolutions of disciplinary cases. Final 
authority in disciplinary matters, however, is vested in the campus 
administration and in the Board of Regents. 

Disciplinary Procedures. Students accused of violating university 
regulations are accorded fundamental due process in disciplinary pro- 
ceedings. Formal rules of evidence, however, shall not be applicable, nor 
shall deviations from prescribed procedures necessarily invalidate a 
decision or proceeding unless significant prejudice to one of the parties 
may result, university hearing and conference procedures are outlined in 
the documents titled "Preparing for a Hearing" and "Preparing for a 
Conference," available from the Office of Judicial Programs. 

Minority Student Education 

1101 Hornbake Library, 405-5616 

The Office of Minority Student Education (OMSE) was officially created on 
July 1 , 1 972, as a result of proposals and recommendations submitted to 
the chancellor from the Campus Black Community and the Study Com- 
mission on Student Life. The office exists to enhance the personal and 
social development and the academic success of minority students. Its 
mission is to work together with other resources on campus to provide 
support services for minority students throughout their college career at 
the University of Maryland at College Park. 

Throughout the year OMSE implements several key programs that have 
as their objective enhancing the recruitment, retention, and graduation of 
minority students at the University of Maryland at College Park. Included 
among the programs are the Tutorial Program, Job Fair, a mentoring 
program, a course, EDCP 108N: College and Career Advancement: 
Concepts and Skills for Minority Students, and Celebrating Academic 
Excellence to recognize outstanding students of color at UMCP 

The OMSE Tutorial Program is designed to provide assistance to minority 
students on a walk-in or appointment basis. 

The Job Fair, an annual event sponsored by OMSE in conjunction with the 
Career Development Center, is designed to contribute to the career 
development of minority undergraduates at all levels. It brings represen- 
tatives from local and national companies to interview students who are 
interested in either permanent positions, summer positions, internships, 
or general occupational information. Workshops in resume writing and 
interviewing techniques are available for students prior to the Job Fair. 

OMSE staff members attempt to develop a healthy socio-cultural minority 
community by encouraging and assisting in the organizing of pre-pro- 
fessional societies in each academic department. OMSE supports some 
and works cooperatively with a number of minority pre-professional 
societies, including law, business, media, engineering, and computer 
science. OMSE also works closely with the campus Hispanic Student 
Union, the Native American Student Union, the Black Student Union, and 
the Panhellenic Council. 

OMSE contains a study-lounge that doubles as a tutorial center and an 
OMSE/CSC Open WAM lab. It provides minority students with an op- 
portunity to study, get assistance from a tutor, or work at state-of-the-art 
computers in a relaxed, atmosphere. 

Orientation 

1195 Stamp Student Union, 314-8217 

The primary goal of orientation is to ease the transition of new students into 
the university community. Orientation begins when students are admitted 
to the university, and ends at the culmination of the first semester. At the 
time of admission to the university, new students will receive material 
announcing the orientation program. The purpose of the program is to 

• Introduce new students to the academic community 

• Coordinate academic advisement for the first semester 

• Introduce campus services and resources 

• Administer the math placement test 

• Register students for their first semester courses 

The Freshman Program runs for two days and provides new students with 



the opportunity to interact formally and informally with faculty, administra- 
tors, returning students, and other new students The Transfer Program 
lasts for one day and focuses on transfer evaluation, advisement, and 
registration. The math placement test is administered during both orien- 
tation programs. 

Note: Students who arrive after 8;30 a.m. on their program day will be 
reassigned to the next available day. 

Parents of new students are invited to attend a one-day program specifically 
designed to introduce parents to the academic, social, and cultural milieux 
of the university. These programs are offered during June and July 

The Orientation Office also coordinates the ongoing one-credit orientation 
course EDCP 1 08-O The goal of this course is to introduce students to the 
world of higher education generally, and the University ol Maryland 
specifically. The course is taught by faculty and administrators, and is 
limited to 25 students per section. 

Parking 

Parking Garage 2 (off Regents Drive). 314-PARK 

The Department of Campus Parking (DCP) is responsible for managing 
and maintaining over 1 6,000 parking spaces on the University of Maryland 
at College Park campus. All College Park students who plan to park a 
motor vehicle in one of these spaces must register with the DCP. 
Motorcycles are considered in the same category as any other vehicle for 
the purposes of registration. It is important to note that campus resident 
students who have earned 55 or fewer UMCP-accepted credits may not 
register for a parking permit. Students may contact DCP for more 
information. 

The DCP mails registration applications in July of each year for the 
convenience of students. Students who do not receive a mail-in application 
packet may register for parking at the DCP Office, located in Parking 
Garage 2, off Regents Drive, at any time during regular business hours. 
Extended hours are available during the first week of the semester. 

When registering for parking, students should bring their student ID card 
and the appropriate payment A UMCP-DCP "Application for Student 
Parking Registration" form must be completed by each student at the time 
of registration. 

Student rates for parking on campus range from $1 0.00 to $75.00 for the 
academic year. 

Illegally parked vehicles, as well as those vehicles not displaying a 
University of Maryland at College Park hanging permit, will be ticketed, 
and students with outstanding parking fines may be barred from registra- 
tion. Complete parking regulations, fines, and other information can be 
obtained when students register for parking.

Resident Life 

2100 Annapolis Hall, 314-2100 

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 undergraduate and 
graduate employees helps to meet the needs of resident students. 



On-campus housing/dining is readily available for all undergraduate 
students 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 34 to 575 residents. Most new students will be 
assigned to traditional residence halls. Apartment suites for four to six 
students, and kitchenless suites for four to eight students are available for 
upper class students. 

Because about one-half of the 7,500 available spaces each year are 
reserved by students returning to the residence halls, entering students 
are assigned to the spaces that remain. Soon after admission to College 
Park, all students who requested housing/dining services are sent the 
official Residence Halls/Dining Services Agreement for the academic 
year. On-campus housing/dining is for the entire academic year (fall and 
spring semesters). 

All students are encouraged to live on campus. Freshman and transfer 
students will find housing accommodations and student interaction a 
benefit to the college experience. To secure an offer of housing and dining 
services for the academic year, check the interest block on the under- 
graduate application for admission. Students may also apply for on- 
campus housing through Resident Life after they are admitted. Once 
accommodated, students may remain in residence halls throughout their

CHAPTER 4 



REGISTRATION, ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS, 
AND REGULATIONS 



REGISTRATION 

First Floor Mitchell Building, 314-8240 

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. The 
Summer Programs catalog is distributed in late March. 

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. 
Registration 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 
permanent 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 student's permanent record. The student's status 
shall be considered as full-time for certification 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) An official class list for each course being offered is issued to 
the appropriate department by the Office of Records and 
Registrations. 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 Registra- 
tions. 



7. The drop period for undergraduate students will begin 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 two possible) 
in the course. This mark shall not be used in any computation 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 be 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 concerned 
is the date that the withdrawal form is received by the Records 
Office. Notation of Withdrawal, 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 
withdrawn students. The deadline date for submitting the 
withdrawal form for each semester is the last day of classes. 
Contact Undergraduate Admissions for readmission informa- 
tion. 

c. It is the intent of the University of Maryland at College Park to 
facilitate the withdrawal or change in registration and the 
reenrollment of students who are called to active military duty 
during the semester. The student (or a representative) should 
bring a copy of the military orders to room 1101, Mitchell 
Building, and process "withdrawal" papers or "change in 
registration" papers. Complete procedures are available from 
the office of Records and Registration. 

10. When Dean's approval is required, the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally delegated to 
the dean in the case students who are advised in the Division of 
Letters and Science. 

General Education Requirements 

In addition to completing a major 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 contem- 
porary 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 Liberal 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 prior to May 1980 are referred to 



30 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



the chapter on General Education ("Statue of Limitations") tor additional 
information. 

For a detailed outline of the program requirements for both the CORE and 
the USP programs, students should refer to the chapter on General 
Education. Also included in this chapter are lists of approved courses 
which may be selected to meet program requirements. 

Enrollment in Majors 

A student who is eligible to remain at the University of Maryland at College 
Park may transfer among curricula, colleges, or other academic units 
except where limitations on enrollments have been approved. Students 
must be enrolled in the major program from which they plan to graduate, 
when registering for the final fifteen hours of the baccalaureate program. 
This requirement also applies to the third year of the combined, 
preprofessional degree programs. 

Students who wish to complete a second major In addition to their primary 
major of record must obtain written permission in advance from the 
appropriate dean(s). As early as possible, but in no case later than the 
beginning of the second semester before the expected date of graduation, 
students must file with the departments or programs involved and with the 
appropriate dean(s), 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 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 University's general education requirements. 
If two colleges are involved in the double major program, the student must 
designate which college is responsible for the maintenance of records. 

Credit Unit and Load Each Semester 

No baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120 semester hours. 
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 

Official classifications of undergraduate students are based on earned 
credits as follows: freshman, 1 -27 semester hours; sophomore, 28-55; 
junior, 56-85; and senior, 86 to at least 120. 

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 undergraduate 
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. 

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate Level Courses 

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

A student seeking to utilize the option will normally be in the senior year, 
have earned an accumulated grade point average of at least 3.0, have 
successfully completed, with a grade of "B" or better, the prerequisite and 
correlative courses, and be a major in the offering or 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 a 
graduate program, nor may the course be used as credit for a graduate 
degree at the University of Maryland 

Individual Combined BA/MA Programs 

In 1 990, the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland authorized the 
individual development ot combined Bachelor's and Master's degree 
programs. For complete guidelines, requirements, and application pro- 
cedures, students should consult with their major department no later than 
the beginning of the second semester of the sophomore year. 



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 Metropolitan 
Area are 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 be added to the University of Maryland 
at College Park transcript. 

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, Marymount University, Mt. Vernon College. 
Trinity College, University of 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 ac- 
cording 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 Assistance 
Act (Title 38, U.S. Code) may receive assistance and enrollment certifi- 
cation at the Veterans Certification Office in Records and Registrations, 
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 service 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 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 31 



CHANGE OF ADDRESS 

Students are expected to notify the Office ol Records and Registrations 
of any change in their local or permanent address. Change ot Address 
lorms 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 a 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 
quantitatively Except as provided below, absences will not be 
used in the computation of grades, and the recording of student 
absences will not be required of the faculty. 

2 In certain courses in-class participation is an integral part of the 
work of the course. A few examples would be courses in public 
speaking and group discussion, courses emphasizing conver- 
sation in foreign languages, certain courses in physical educa- 
tion, and certain laboratory sessions. Eacti department shall 
determine which of its courses fall into this category. It shall be the 
responsibility of the instructor in such a course 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 tran- 
sitional 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 inter- 
action 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 demeaning 
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 instructors 
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 supervise, 
to ensure that students are treated equitably and not discouraged or 
devalued based on their differences. Resources for self-evaluation and 
training forfaculty members on classroom climate and interaction patterns 
are available from the Office of Human Relations. 



EXAMINATIONS 



1 . All examinations and tests shall be given during class hours in 
accordance with the regularly scheduled (or officially "arranged") 
time and place ol each course listed in the Schedule of Classes. 
Unpublished changes in the scheduling or location ot classes/ 
tests must be 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 exami- 
nations. 

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 written 
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 univer- 
sity activities at the request of university authorities, or compel- 
ling circumstances beyond the student's control. In cases of 
dispute, the student may appeal to the chair of the department 
offering the course within one week from the date of the refusal 
of the right 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 
for which 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 the event that a group of students require the same 
make-up examination, 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. Afinal examination shall be given in every undergraduate course. 
Exceptions may be made with the written approval of the chair of 
the department or the dean. To avoid basing too much of the 
semester grade upon the final examination, additional tests, 
quizzes, term papers, reports and the like should be 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 Examination Schedule 
without written permission of the department chair. 

4. As of fall semester, 1 980, graduating seniors will be expected to 
take final exams during the regular examination period. 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 instructors 
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 
administration of examinations in courses under his or her 
jurisdiction. The deans should present the matter of examinations 
for consideration 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 
examinations. 

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 authorized 
some other procedure. 

9. Each instructor must safeguard examination questions and all 
trial 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 should be made 
for proper ventilation, lighting, and a seating plan. At least one 
ofthe proctors present must be sufficiently cognizant of the 



32 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



subject matter of the examination to deal authoritatively with 
inquiries arising from the examination. 

13. Books, papers, etc belonging to the student, must be 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., about three feet. Where this arrangement is not 
possible some means must be provided to protect the integrity of 
the examination. 

1 5. "Blue books" only must be used in periodic or final examinations 
unless special forms are furnished by the department concerned . 

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

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

18. Where an instructor must proctor more than forty students, he or 
she should consult the chair of the department concerning 
proctorial assistance. An instructor should consult the department 
chair if in his or her opinion a smaller number of students for an 
examination requires the help of another instructor. 

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

20. All conversation will cease prior to the passing out of examination 
papers, and silence will be maintained in the room during the 
entire examination period. 

21. Examination papers will be placed face down on the writing 
surface until the examination is officially begun by the proctor. 

22. Examination papers will be kept flat on the writing surface at all 
times. 



RECORDS 

Marking System and Record Notations 

The Records Office, located on the first floor of the Mitchell Building, is 
responsible for maintaining student records and issuing official transcripts. 

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 projects, 
orientation courses, practice teaching, and the like. In computation 
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-Fall — The mark of P is a student option mark, equivalent to 
A, B, Cor 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 imple- 
mentation beginning with the spring 1989 semester: 

1. To register for a course under the pass-fail option, an under- 
graduate must have completed 30 or more credit hours 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 Mary- 
land GPA of at least 2.0 

2. Courses for 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 for 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 re-registenng 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 both 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 g r ade. 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 dunng 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 T be 
recorded for a student who has not completed the major portion of the work 
of the course 

1 . The student will remove the T by completing work assigned by 
the instructor. It is the student's responsibility to request ar- 
rangements 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 offenng 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 in the department office. 

3. All course work required by an Incomplete Contract must be 
completed by the time stipulated in the contract, usually the end 
of the next semester: but in any event, no later than one year. If 
the instructor is unavailable, the department chair will, upon 
request of the student, make the arrangements for the student to 
complete the course requirements If the remaining wort* 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 cir- 
cumstances are deemed to warrant further delay The new 
completion date must again be specified and agreed to m writing 
by the student and the dean. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 33 



5. II is the responsibility ot 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 Incom- 
plete 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 policy and 
individual circumstances. 

Repeat: 

Students matriculating Fall 1990 and later are required to follow the 
Repeat Policy outlined below: 

1 . There is a limit to the number of times a student may repeat 
a course. Students may have one repeat of any given course in 
which a mark of A, B, C, D, F, P, S or W. [In addition to the grades 
listed above, these additional marks will count as attempts in the 
repeat program: I, NGR or Audit] No student may be registered 
after the schedule adjustment period for any given course more 
than two times. An exception allowing one additional repeat in a 
course may be granted by a dean's office. When requesting such 
an exception, a student must present a plan for successfully 
completing the course. 

2. There is also a limit on the number of courses that a student 
may repeat. The total number of different courses that may be 
repeated by a student will be function of his/her class standing 
when admitted to the University of Maryland at College Park. The 
following guidelines will be applied:

•Credits on entry will be based on acceptable transfer credit. 

An exception to the above limitations may be obtained under very 
unusual circumstances by an appeal to the Vice President for 
Academic Affairs/Provost. 

3. All attempts at a given course resulting in a grade of A, B, C, D, 
or F will be included in the computation of the grade point 
average. However, the following two exceptions are made to 
assist the adjustment to the campus of students admitted as 
freshmen to College Park, and students transferring to College 
Park from other institutions of higher learning. Grades in courses 
will be dropped from the cumulative grade point average if they 
are subsequently repeated with a higher grade provided that: 

A) They are earned during the first semester of residence at 
College Park, or 

B) The student's first registration in the class for which the 
grade is to be dropped is during or prior to the semester in 
which the student reaches the 24 credit limit (the total 
number of credits earned at College Park plus credits 
transferred to College Park from other institutions of higher 
education). Anygrade earned in prior attempts of a repeated 
course will appear on the student's transcript, regardless of 
whether the grade is dropped from or averaged into the 
cumulative grade point average. 

Repeat policy for students matriculating Summer 1990 and before: 

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. 

Duplicate course: Used to indicate two courses with the same course 
content. The second course is counted in the cumulative totals earned; 
both courses are counted in the cumulative attempted credit and in the 
calculation of grade point average unless an exception is made by the 
student's dean. 

Non-applicable (Non-Appl): 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 student's 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 student's 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 ap- 
plicable 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 Maryland 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 Maryland 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 institution. Approval is neither 
automatic or guaranteed. 

PROFICIENCY EXAMINATION PROGRAMS 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers new, continuing, and 
returning students several opportunities to earn college credit by dem- 
onstrating achievement in a subject field through examination. College 
Park recognizes three proficiency examination programs for credit: Ad- 
vanced Placement (AP), Departmental Proficiency Examination Program 
(Credit By Examination), and College Level Examination Program (CLEP). 
Undergraduate students may earn a total of up to one-half of the credits 
required for their degree through examination. Usually, this is no more 
than 60 credits. Students are responsible for consulting with the appro- 
priate dean or advisor about the applicability of any credits earned by 
examination to a specific degree program. Students should also seek 
assistance in determining which UMCP courses duplicate credits earned 
for an examination. Students will not receive credit for both passing 
an examination and completing an equivalent course. 

Advanced Placement (AP) Credit. For complete information about the 
applicability of AP exams and the assignment of credit, please see the 
Admissions chapter of this catalog. 

Departmental Proficiency Examination (Credit by Examination). 

College Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, customarily referred 
to as "credit by examination," are comparable to comprehensive final 
examinations in a course. Although the mathematics and foreign lan- 
guage departments receive the most applications for credit by examination, 
many departments will provide examinations for certain of their courses. 
Initial inquiry as to whether an examination in a specific course is available 
is best made at the academic department which offers the course in 
question. 

If an examination for a course is available, the department will provide 
information regarding time and place, type of examination, and material 
which might be helpful in preparing for the examination. An undergraduate 
who passes a departmental proficiency examination is given credit and 
quality points toward graduation in the amount regularly allowed in the 
course, provided such credits do not duplicate credit obtained by some 
other means. 



34 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



After making arrangements with the department, apply through the 
Undergraduate Advising Office, 1 1 17 Hornbake, 314-8418. 

Policies governing credit by examination: 

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

2. Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be taken for 
courses in which the student has remained registered at the 
University of Maryland at College Park beyond the Schedule 
Adjustment Period with a transcript notation of W" 

3. Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be used to 
change grades, including Incompletes and Withdrawals. 

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

a. A student may cancel the application at any time prior to 
completion of the examination with no entry on his/her perma- 
nent 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, the student may elect not to 
have this grade recorded. In this case, a mark of W is 
recorded. (Equivalent to the drop period.) 

c. No examination 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 informa- 
tion in the case of standardized examinations), and the 
student's answers have been filed with the Chair of the 
department offering the course. 
5 If accepted by the student (see 4b, above), letter grades earned 
through credit by examination are entered on the student's 
transcript, and are used in computing his/her cumulative grade 
point average. A student may elect to take a "credit by examination" 
"Pass-Fail" only if the credit fulfills an elective in the students 
degree program. No College, major, field of concentration, or 
general education program requirement may be taken under 
the pass-fail option. Please refer to the Pass-Fail policy under 
the "Records" section in this chapter. 

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) recognizes 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. 

CLEP exams are administered at CLEP testing centers throughout the 
country. The University of Maryland at College Park is a CLEP Test Center 
(Test Center Code #58 1 4). To obtain an application or additional informa- 
tion, contact the CLEP Administrator in the Counseling Center, Room 
01 06A Shoemaker Hall. (31 4-7688), or write toCLEP, CN 6600. Princeton, 
New Jersey, 08541-6600. 

Students who want to earn credit through CLEP must request their official 
score reports to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 
Mitchell Building, University of Maryland. College Park, MD 20742. (The 
UMCP Score Recipient Code is #5814.) 

Policies governing CLEP are as follows: 

1 . A student must matriculate at College Park before CLEP credits 
are officially posted. The posting will not be done until a student 
has established a record. 

2. Each institution of the University of Maryland System establishes 
standards for acceptance of CLEP exemptions and credits. 
Students must check with the institution to which they will transfer 
to learn if they will lose, maintain, or gain credit. 

3. College Park will award credit for a CLEP examination 

(a) provided the examination was being accepted for credit 
here on the date the student took the examination, and 

(b) provided that the examination was not taken during a 
student's final thirty credits. The final thirty hours of credit 



are to be taken in residence, unless prior approval has been 
granted by the student's dean. 

4. Credit will not be given for both completing a course and 

passing an examination covering substantially the same 
material. 

5. Furthermore, credit will not be awarded for CLEP examinations 
if the student has previously completed more advanced courses 
in the same field. 

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

If you have questions about the applicability of specific credit to your 
program, contact your Dean's Office or the Undergraduate Advising 
Center, Room 1117, Hornbake Library, 314-8418. 

College Park awards credits for CLEP Examinations only as indicated on 
the chart below (if an examination is not listed below, it is not accepted for 
credit at this institution). 



TRANSFER CREDIT 

The Records Office posts all transfer credit that would be acceptable to 
any of the degree programs at the University of Maryland 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 College Park. 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 
UMCP grade point average calculation. See the chapter on Admissions 
in this catalog for additional information. 

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

1. Courses taken at another institution may not be credited to- 
ward 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 inthesummerprogramof another institution . 
"Permission to Enroll in Another Institution" forms are available in 
the office of the student's dean. This form must be submitted and 
approved by the college for any course which will eventually be 
added to the College Park transcript. 

2. Courses taken at other University of Maryland Institution* 
For students who began their attendance at the University of 
Maryland at College Park in 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 
College Park prior to fall 1 989, courses taken at another University 
of Maryland Board of Regents institution (UMBC. UMAB. UMES. 
UMUC) prior to fall 1989 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 informa- 
tion. 

3. UMS Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registration Program 
College Park undergraduate students participating in the UMS 
Concurrent Inter-Institutional 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 of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan 
Area 

Courses taken through the Consortium are considered to be 
resident credit. See above under "Consortium" and see the 
Schedule of Classes for information. 



REQUIREMENTS FOR RETENTION

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 (exclud- 
ing courses with grades of P and S) with a semester GPA of 3.500 or 
higher. This notation will be placed on the individual's permanent record. 

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 as noted below:

2. Computation of GPA. Credits completed with grades of A, B, C, 
D, and 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, NGR 
and Audit will not be used in the computation of semester and 
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 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 
thereafter received academic warning for two consecutive se- 



mesters will be academically dismissed. Students who are aca- 
demically dismissed will have this action entered on their tran- 
script 

6. No student transfernng 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. 

7. A student who has been academically dismissed and who is 
reinstated will be academically dismissed again if minimum 
academic standard are not met by the end of the first semester 
after reinstatement. (See Readmission and Reinstatement m the 
Admissions chapter of this catalog.) 

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

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 . See Repeat Policy above to determine the effect of repeated 
courses in calculation of GPA. 

Dismissal of Delinquent 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 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 for the same degree, the 
fee will not be charged a second time. 

Degree Requirements 

The requirements for graduation vary according to the character of 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 for 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 authorities no later 
than the close of the junior year to ascertain his or her standing with 
respect to advancement toward a degree. For this purpose, 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. 

1) Residency requirement - Final Thirty-Hour Rule 

a. All candidates for College Park degrees should plan to take 
their final thirty credits in residence since the advanced work of 
their major study normally occurs in the last year of the 
undergraduate program. Included in these thirty semester 
hours will be a minimum of fifteen semester hours in courses 
numbered 300 or above, including at least twelve semester 
hours required in the major field (in 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. 
preprofessional 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 120 credit hours have been earned. 

It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize himself or 
herself with the requirements of specific curricula 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 



Second Degree Taken Sequentially. A student who has com- 
pleted requirements for and has received one baccalaureate 
degree and who wishes to earn a second baccalaureate degree 
from College Park must satisfactorily complete the requirements of 
the second degree and enough additional credits so that the total, 
including all applicable credits earned at College Park or 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. 

Second Degree Taken Simultaneously. A student who wishes to 
receive simultaneously two baccalaureate degrees from College 
Park must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 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) before the expected date of 
graduation, the student must file with the departments or programs 
involved, as well as with the appropriate deans, formal programs 
showing the courses to be offered to meet the major, 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 
concurrently 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 de- 
partments 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 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 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 

Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude are the 
commencement honors for excellence in scholarship. Honors are awarded 
to students with a GPA equal to the highest two percent (Summa). the next 
highest three percent (Magna), and the following five percent (Cum laude) 
of the GPA distribution used in calculations for that semester. The GPA 
distribution shall be computed each semester from the GPAs of the three 
preceding classes of the student's degree-granting unit. To be eligible for 
this recognition, at least 60 semester hours must be earned at or 
transferred with a grade to College Park. No more than six credits taken 



38 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



pass/fail or satisfactory/fail shall count toward the 60-hour minimum. No 
student with an average less than 3.30 will be considered for a commence- 
ment honor. Because grades lor a term generally are officially recorded 
after the term's graduation day, computation of the student's GPA will not 
include grades for courses taken during the student's final semester at 
College Park. However, the hours taken during that semester will apply 
toward the 60-hour requirement. 

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 hu- 
manities, social sciences and natural sciences. The committee reviews 
transcripts 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 completed, 
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 juniors a grade point average of 
at least 3.75 in such courses. 

5. Distribution. Normally the credit hours presented for Phi Beta 
Kappa must contain at least nine liberal hours in each of the three 
areas of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences (including 
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 
require 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. 

AWARDS AND PRIZES 

In addition to the campus honors described above, many colleges, 
departments, programs, corporations, and individuals sponsor awards 
and prizes to graduating seniors. 

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK 
CODE OF ACADEMIC INTEGRITY (Approved by 
the Campus Senate February 13, 1989) 

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 principles 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 unautho- 
rized materials, information, or study aids in any academic 
exercise. 

(b) FABRICATION— intentional and unauthorized falsification or 
invention of any information or citation in an academic exer- 
cise. 

(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 it. 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 academic 
dishonesty are regrettable aspects of modem education. These 
reputations become self-fulfilling and grow, unless vigorously 
challenged by students and faculty alike 

All members of the university commumtystudents. faculty, and 
staffshare the responsibility and authority to challenge and make 
known acts of apparent academic dishonesty Faculty must under- 
take a threshold responsibility for such traditional safeguards as 
examination security and proctonng. 



Honor Pledge 



All applicants for admission to undergraduate or graduate pro- 
grams at the University of Maryland 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 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 39 



Procedures: 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 
determined by the Vice President for 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 
academic 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 
reasonable cause to believe that an act of academic dis- 
honesty did occur, or was attempted, they will forward a 
written 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 
described 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 full 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, includ- 
ing 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 
may be a student, faculty, or staff member of the university. 
The Presiding Officer will be selected by the Director of 
Judicial Programs. 

14. If the Vice President for 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 been attempted, the Vice Presi- 
dent or designee will convene an ad hoc Honor Board by 
selecting and appointing two students and one faculty/staff 
member. 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, 
accuracy 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, orderly, 
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. 

17. 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. 

18. The sequence of an Honor Review is necessarily controlled by 



40 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



the nature of the incident to be investigated and the character of 
the information 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 Pre- 
senter, 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 majority vote. 

(f) The Honor Board will not conclude that a student has 
attempted or engaged in an act of academic dishonesty 
unless, after considering all the information before it, a 
majority of members 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", whichever more accurately de- 
scribes the result of its investigation. The student would then 
be notified in writing of the decision to dismiss the charge. 

(g) If the Honor Board finds the student has engaged in an act 
of academic dishonesty, both the Presenter and the student 
may recommend an appropriate penalty. Pertinent docu- 
ments and other material 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 appropriate 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 appropriate sanction. 

II. Suggesting relevant questions which the Presiding 
Officer 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 Oflicer. 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 inves- 
tigation, 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 be called 
upon to provide information, be excluded from the Honor 
Review except for that purpose The members of the Honor 
Board may conduct private deliberations at such times and 
places as they deem proper. 

(d) It is the responsibility of the person desiring 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 experience has demonstrated that the actual 
appearance 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 should not be 
expected to appear. Any written statement must be dated, 
signed by the person making it, and witnessed by a univer- 
sity employee. The work of an Honor Board will not, as a 
general practice, be delayed due to the unavailability of a 
witness. 

(e) An Honor Review is not a trial. Formal rules of evidence 
commonly associated with a civil or criminal trial may be 
counterproductive in an academic investigatory proceed- 
ing, and shall not be applied. The Presiding Officer will 
accept for consideration all matters which reasonable per- 
sons would accept as having probative value in the conduct 
of their affairs. Unduly repetitious, irrelevant, or personally 
abusive material should be excluded. 

20. If the Honor Board finds that an attempt or act of academic 
dishonesty did occur, it shall recommend an appropnate sanc- 
tion. 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 papers, collaboration with others, or some actual or potential 
harm toother 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 written reasons to the Honor Board. 

Procedures: Action by the 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 
delivery or certified mail The student may submita written appeal 
to the Dean concerning the Honor Board's recommendation 
within ten (10) days after the student receives the Board's 
findings and recommendations. 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 It the Dean 
determines to suspend the student, then this will not be imple- 
mented until reviewed by the Vice President for 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. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 41 



The Grade of "XF" 

24. The grade ol "XF" is intended to denote a failure to accept and 
exhibit the fundamental value ol 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 activ- 
ity, 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 
successfully completed a non-credit seminar on academic 
integrity, 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 requiring 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 of 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 deter- 
minations pertaining to the removal of the "XF" grade penalty may 
be appealed to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. If the Vice 
President removes the grade of "XF" from the student's transcript, 
the Vice President shall provide written 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 Hu- 
manities; Behavioral and Social Sciences; Business and 
Management; Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sci- 
ences; Education; Engineering; Human Ecology; Journal- 
ism; Life Sciences; Health and Human Performance; the 
Dean of the School of Architecture; and the Dean for Un- 
dergraduate Studies will each appoint one undergraduate 
student. 

(b) The Dean of the Graduate School will appoint seven gradu- 
ate 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 
requirements of Parts 25 and 26 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 integrity and moral development, as 
determined by the Director of Judicial Programs. 

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

(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. 
Consideration at that time should be given to introducing additional 
enforcement responsibilities and privileges characteristic of tra- 
ditional honor systems at sister institutions, including the provi- 
sion 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 considered in the resolution of individual cases.

GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS 



GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Dr. Kathryn Mohrman 
1115 Hornbake Library, 405-9354 

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 expose students to both the great ideas and the controversies 
in historic and contemporary human thought and experience. They 
provide the breadth, perspective and challenge that allow graduates to 
claim to be "educated people." 

In a world of rapid economic, social, and technological change, the 
importance of a broadly based education remains essential. 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 central training provided by the major field 
of study. General education elevates a university above serving merely as 
a job-training institution. General education requirements ensure that 
students develop a wide range of abilities and knowledge and gain 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. 

General education requirements are spread strategically throughout the 
student's four years of baccalaureate study and represent a third of the 
total academic work required for graduation. At the University of Maryland 
at College Park, the general education program has three major com- 
ponents: 

FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES 

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

DISTRIBUTIVE STUDIES 

These courses expose students to broad areas of learning in many 
disciplines. They serve as an introduction to the different kinds of 
knowledge and to the nature of scholarship in 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 Dis- 
tributive Studies courses and furnish the opportunity to cultivate 
higher-level critical thinking skills in the analysis of problems They 
provide reflection upon contemporary problems in areas outside 
maiors Students take the advanced studies courses in their junior 
and senior years. 



STATEMENT ON APPLICABILITY OF THE NEW CORE 
PROGRAM AND THE USP PROGRAM

(CORE), must be completed by all students entering in May 1990 and 
thereafter who have earned eight (8) or fewer credits from this or any other 
college. Students who enter and have earned nine (9) or more credits 
before May 1 990 from this or any other college will complete their general 
educationrequirements under the University Studies Program (USP).

quirements, undergraduate students returning or transfernng 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°o of the general 
education requirements then in effect.

THE COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE (AGRI) 

1224 Symons Hall, 405-2080 

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 Agriculture offers educational programs with a broad 
cultural and scientific base. Instruction in the college includes the fun- 
damental 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 programs in specialized areas may be tailored to fit the particular 
needs of the individual student. Previous training in agriculture is not a 
prerequisite for study in the College of Agriculture; students with rural, 
suburban and urban 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 research 
activities enabling us to use our environment and natural resources 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 

AgricultureGeneral Curriculum 

Agronomy 

Animal Sciences 

Food Science Program 

Horticulture 

Institute of Applied Agriculture (two-year program) 

Natural Resources Management Program 

Combined DegreeCollege of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine 

Advantage of Location and Facilities 

Educational opportunities in the College of Agriculture are enhanced by 
the proximity of several research units of the federal government. Teaching 
and research activities in the college are conducted with the cooperation 
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 U.S. Department of Agnculture 



Headquarters in Washington, DC Related research laboratories 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, modem 
greenhouses are available for teaching and research on a wide variety of 
plants, plant pests, and crop cultural systems. Dairy and beef cattle and 
flocks of poultry are 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 lo- 
cations 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 agricultural 
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 agricultural crops and 
animals. 

Requirements for Admission 

For students entering the College of Agriculture 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 engineering or agricultural chemistry. 

Degree Requirements 

Students graduating from the college must complete at least 120 credits 
with an average of 2.0 in all courses applicable toward the degree. 
Included in the 120 credits must be the following:

Research and Service Units 

The Agricultural Experiment Station 

Ensuring agriculture's continued viability, while safeguarding Maryland's 
environment and natural resources, necessitates continual expansion of 
our research knowledge base. The Maryland Agricultural Expenment 
Station, a research component of the University of Maryland System, uses 
a statewide network of facilities and faculty to support not only established 
and emerging agricultural enterprises, but also the broader needs of our 
environment, economy and society. Headquartered in College Park, the 
Experiment Station was created in 1 988 to comply with the Hatch Act of 
1987. The Act authorized the establishment of an agricultural experiment 
station at each of the Land Grant Colleges. The Experiment Station has 
appointments with nearly 150 scientists within the University of Maryland 
System. It also works closely with other public and private research units, 
such as the U. S. Department of Agriculture's nearby Beltsville Agricultural 
Research Center. The Experiment Station has four research and education 
centers, with nine facilities, located throughout Maryland. It is supported 
through state and federal funds, grants and contracts, and other sources 

The Experiment Station uses the latest scientific tools to support a diverse. 
interdisciplinary research program that includes: plant and animal biol- 
ogy; biotechnology; agricultural productivity, utilization and marketing; 
environment and natural resources; and land use and public policy These 
tools include a prototype robotic milking system and a production-scale 
striped bass laboratory, the Crane Aquaculture Facility. Genetic principles 
and biotechnological techniques are used for the improvement of turf and 
ornamentals, vegetable and field crops, poultry, beef and dairy cattle, and 
other animals. Also included are studies of alternative crops, and of plant 
species that can tolerate the increased levels of ultraviolet light and other 
conditions brought on by global problems such as ozone depletion and the 
greenhouse effect. Pathological principles are used to improve the 
identification, prevention, and control of plant and animal diseases 
Studies of insect-plant evolutionary patterns offer insight into natural plant 
defenses against pests, and may yield non-chemical means of pest 
control. 

Biochemistry plays an important role in evaluating the nutritional value of 
crops, the feed conversion efficiency of poultry and other animals, and the 
quality of plant and animal products for human consumption Engmeenng 
principles are applied for producing and maintaining optimal environments 
for agricultural production, for improving processing systems that lead to 
enhanced food quality, and for enhancing waste utilization and disposal 
techniques. Water quality studies include determining the presence and 
effects of toxins entering the Chesapeake Bay. as well as efforts to 
minimize the possible flow of agricultural chemicals into surface and 
ground water. Economic and social science studies are utilized in efforts 
to preserve Maryland's high quality of life by maintaining farmland and 
open space. 

Experiment Station research is conducted by faculty aided by research 
technicians, and graduate and undergraduate students Scientists dis- 
seminate their results to fellow professionals through publications in peer- 
reviewed journals and society meetings, and to the general public through 
the research and education centers and the Expenment Station's productive 
linkage with the Cooperative Extension Service 

Cooperative Extension Service 

As part of the total university system, the Cooperative Extension Service 
takes the University of Maryland to the people of Maryland, wherever they 
are. In its role as the "off-campus, non -credit, out-of -classroom" arm of the 



School of Architecture 57 



university, it extends the classroom to all parts ot the state With its 
uniquely effective educational delivery system, the Cooperative Exten- 
sion 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 (acuity ot the university and with 
units of the university system, as well as state and federal agencies and 
pnvate groups 

General administrative offices ot 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). 

The Cooperative Extension Service was authorized by Congress In 1914 
under the Smith-Lever Act and is funded by a three-way partnership. 
Support comes from the federal government for both 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"front lines" that deliver university resources in ways people can use 
them effectively. These field faculty rely on campus-based Cooperative 
Extension specialists at both UMCP and UMES to provide up-to-date 
research assistance in planning and conducting relevant educational 
programs. Many of the Cooperative Extension Service faculty at the state 
level carry joint 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 association 
with many groups and organizations such as 4-H and homemakers' clubs, 
farmers' groups and cooperatives, agribusiness firms, watermen's orga- 
nizations, civic and social organizations, governmental agency person- 
nel, 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 Nutrition 
Education Program. Thousands of young people gain leadership knowledge 
and experience and are provided practical education instruction 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 videotapes, newsletters, radio and television 
programs, newspaper articles and columns, articles in specialized pub- 
lications, 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.

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is comprised of a diverse 
group of disciplines and fields of study all of which emphasize a broad 
liberal arts education as the foundation for understanding the environmental, 
social, and cultural forces that shape our world At the heart of the 
behavioral and social sciences is the attempt to understand human 
beings, both individually and in groups. Disciplines in the behavioral and 
social sciences use approaches that range from the scientific to the 
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 clearly and persuasively 
Students interested in human behavior and in solving human and social 
problems will find many exciting opportunities through the programs and 
courses offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences

Masters' Programs 

Undergraduate Program 

The undergraduate program recognizes the need for professional education 
in business and management based on a foundation m the liberal arts 
Modern society compnses intricate business, economic, social, and 
government institutions requiring a large number of men and women 
trained to be effective and responsible managers 

A student in business and management selects a maior in one of several 
curricula: (1) Accounting; (2) Decision and Information Sciences; (3) 
Finance; (4) General Business and Management (including an Interna- 
tional Business option); (5) Management Science; (6) Marketing. (7)

semester hours and one year at the University ol Maryland School of Law. 
(See specific requirements at the end of the curricula section to follow ) 

Students interested in institutional management, insurance or real estate 
may plan with their advisors to select elective courses to meet their 
specialized needs; however, this interest is in addition to completion of 
one of the above majors (See specific suggestions at the end of curricula 
section to follow.) 

Advising 

General advisement in the College of Business and Management is 
available Monday through Friday in the Office of Undergraduate Studies. 
2136 Tydings Hall, 405-2286. It is recommended that students visit this 
office each semester to ensure that they are informed about current 
requirements and procedures. Student problems concerning advising 
should be directed to the Director of Undergraduate Student Services.

summer, and fall transfer orientation programs. Contact the Orientation 
Office for further information. 314-8217. 

Entrance Requirements 

Admission to the College of Business and Management is competitive at 
the freshman level. Since the demand for majors in business beyond the 
sophomore level has exceeded faculty resources it is necessary to limit 
student enrollment at the junior and senior level. Students will be required 
to meet a certain grade point average and course completion requirements 
to continue taking courses at the junior level. In addition to the UMCP 
coursework, all courses from other colleges count toward the computation 
of the cumulative GPA for Business college admission.

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. 

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 transfer- 
ability. 

Summary of Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements (all cur- 
ricula): At least 45 hours of the 120 semester hours of academic work 



College of Business and Management 63

systems for planning, controlling and appraising performance of an 
organization. Accounting includes among its many facets: financial plan- 
ning, budgeting, accounting systems, financial management controls, 
financial analysis of performance, financial reporting, internal and exter- 
nal auditing, and taxation.

Management Science (operations research) is the application of scientific 
methods to decision problems, especially those involving the control of 
organized human-machine systems, to provide solutions that best serve 
the goals and objectives of the organization as a whole. Practitioners in 
this field are employed in industry, business, and federal, state, and local 
governments. Students planning to major in this field must complete 
MATH 140 and 141 prior to junior standing. Students considering gradu- 
ate work in this field should complete MATH 240 and 241 as early as 
possible in their careers.

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 preparatory 
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 Programs 
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 is devoted 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 
under-representation of women and minorities in these fields. There are 
in fact many career opportunities for women and members of minorities 
in the fields represented by the college.

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (EDUC) 

Benjamin Building 

Office of Student Services: 405-2350 

Dean: Dale Scannell 

The College of Education is a professional college committed to advancing 
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 Curnculum 
and Instruction which offers early childhood, elementary, and secondary 
education programs: the Department of Industrial, Technological, and 
Occupational Education; and the Department of Special Education. 
Enrollment in the professional teacher education programs in the above- 
mentioned departments is limited. See admission requirements below. 
The Department of Industrial, Technological, and Occupational Education 
also offers an Industrial Technology major leading to a career in industry. 

Only students who have been admitted to the teacher education programs 
are permitted to enroll in the professional education course sequences 
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 
with 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 CORE or USP program requirements, 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 experiences in the college 
classroom and participate in exploring, learning and practicing with 
children and teachers in classrooms in the community. The capstone 
experience of student teaching brings classroom theory and practice 
together into a personal set of professionally appropriate skills and 
processes. 

Admission to Teacher Education Professional 
Coursework 

Applicants to the University of Maryland who have declared an interest in 
education are admitted to the university by the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions It is recommended that University of Maryland undergraduates 
choose a teacher education major prior to completion of 45 credit hours 
Majors receive advising by staff of their particular department regarding 
admission to the Teacher Education Program in the College of Education 
All majors must apply for admission, and be admitted, in order to enroll in 
coursework in the professional teacher education degree program 

For admission into a teacher education program, a student must (1) 
complete English 1 01 and Math 1 1 or higher (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 spelling, language and mathematics segments of the 
California Achievement Test Level 20 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 



College of Education 69 



A student who initially (alls to meet the admission criteria 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 ot three times. 
A plan tor becoming eligible (or admission may be developed by the 
student and the department advisor A Teacher Education Appeals Board 
reviews appeals from students who do not meet the admission, advance- 
ment or retention criteria. Consult the Student Services Office for policies 
and procedures regarding appeals. 

Criteria for admission to the Teacher Education program apply to any 
teacher preparation program offered by the University of Maryland. Thus, 
students desiring a mapr in agriculture 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 but who. 
through an established cooperative program with another college are 
preparing to teach, must meet all admission, scholastic and curricular 
requirements of the College of Education. The professional education 
courses are restricted to degree-seeking majors who have met College of 
Education requirements for admission. 

Student Teaching 

Once the student has been admitted into the professional program, 
required courses must be completed in an appropriate sequence leading 
to the required student teaching experience. Prior 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 
satisfactorily completed all other required course work in their program; (3) 
apply for student teaching to the Office of Laboratory Experiences one 
semester in advance; (4) be recommended by their department; and (5) 
have on file favorable ratings from prior supervised experiences in school 
settings including evaluations of the EDHD 300 field experiences. 

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

A certificate indicating freedom from tuberculosis and proof of immunization 
for measles (rubella) is also required. This may be obtained from a private 
physician, a health department, or the University 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 Experiences. 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 
coursework is not permitted. Living arrangements, including transporta- 
tion for the student teaching assignments, are considered the responsi- 
bility of the student. Students should contact the Office of Laboratory 
Experiences 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 .Minimum 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 general education requirements (USP or 
CORE) 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 tocurncular requirements and rules of the College of Education 
must be recommended by the student's advisor and department chair- 
person and approved by the dean 

Accreditation and Certification 

Ail 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 Maryland 
State Department of Education using standards of the National Association 
of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification. Accreditation 
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 Department 
of Education of the graduate's eligibility for certification.

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING (ENGR) 

1 131 Engineering Classroom Building. 405-3855 

Dean: George E. Dieter 

Undergraduate Student Affairs: 405-3855 

Cooperative Engineering Education: 405-3863 

Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering: 405-3878 

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 
both 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 appropriate academic program in high school. This 
course of study should include 3-1/2 to 4 years of college preparatory 
mathematics (including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, 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 for both freshmen 
and transfer students. Applicants who have designated a maior within the 
College of Engineering will be selected for admission on the basis of 
academic promise and available space. Because of space limitations, the 
College of Engineering may not be able to offer admission to all qualified 
applicants. The University of Maryland at College Park urges early 
application. Applicants admissible to the university but not to the college 
will be offered admission to the Division of Letters and Science. This does 
not assure eventual admission to the College of Engineering. For consid- 
eration of appeals for admission contact the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions. Minority and women students are encouraged to apply for 
admission 

Freshmen 

Limited Enrollment status for this college is under review at the time of 
publication of this catalog. Students should check with the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions, the college or the department for updated 
information.

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 CORE Liberal Arts and Science Studies Program. 

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

3. Related technical courses, engineering sciences and other courses 
approved for one curriculum but offered by another department. 

4. Courses in the major department. A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution of courses from the department chair 
and the Dean of the college. The courses in each engineering 
curriculum, as classified below, form a sequential and developmental 
pattern in subject matter. In this respect, curricula in engineering 
may differ from curricula in other colleges. Some regulations which 



are generally applicable to all students may need clarification lor 
purposes of orderly administration among engineering students 
(see the Academic Regulations section of this catalog) Moreover, 
the College of Engineering establishes policies 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 student as does the 
responsibility for proper achievement in courses in which the 
student is enrolled Each student should be familiar with the 
provisions of this catalog, including the Academic Regulations. 

2. Required courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry have 
highest priority; and it is strongly recommended that every engi- 
neering student register for mathematics and chemistry or math- 
ematics 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 education 
courses and must follow the university's requirements regarding 
completion of the general education (CORE) Program. Consult the 
Academic Regulations section of this catalog for additional infor- 
mation. 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 
policy. Students beginning college-level work in the Fall 1989 
semester must also plan their general education (CORE) 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 
minimum of 1 20 credits plus satisfaction of all department, college, 
and University general education (CORE) Program requirements. 
Students should be aware that for all currently existing engineering 
programs the total number of credits necessary for the degree will 
exceed 1 20 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 theiracademic progress and discuss final graduation requirements. 

Advising 

Advising is available by appointment Monday through Friday, from 8:30 
a.m. to 1 1 :30 a.m and 1 :00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and on a walk-in basis from

All of the above programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation 
Commission ot the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
except the Applied Science Option of the Undesignated Engineering 
degree. 

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, 
regardless 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 
by the different departments or taken by the student as electives. The 
responsibility for teaching the engineering science courses is divided 
among the Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering de- 
partments. 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 whether 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 15 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 required 
determined individually approximately 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 
Mary's 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 Pennsylvania, 
and Xavier University in Louisiana. 

Dual Degree Program in Engineering and German 

The College of Engineering and the Department of German and Slavic 
Languages have established a dual degree program in Engineering and 
German in which students can simultaneously earn two baccalaureate 
degrees in both disciplines. The program provides eight weeks in Ger- 
many studying intensive technical German at the Carl Duisberg 
Sprachcolleg and a four to six month paid internship in German industry. 

For further information about this program, students should contact the 
Engineering Student Affairs Office (405-3855) or the Department of 
German and Slavic Languages and Literature, 405-4091 

The Japan Technological Affairs Program 

The Japan Technological Affairs Program offers students in the College 
of Engineering intensive Japanese language instruction, workshops, and 
activities related to Japanese culture and society to prepare students for 
year long internships in Japan in a Japanese laboratory or company The 
program is coordinated between the College of Engineering and the 
Department of East Asian Languages. Students complete their baccalau- 
reate studies in engineering and receive the intensive Japanese instruction 
in summer classes in the University's Language House and classes 
during the academic year to prepare the future engineer to operate with 
ease in Japan's research community. 

For further information about this program, students should contact the 
Engineering Student Affairs Office (405-3855). 

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 Engineering Transfer Programs in the 
catalogs of the sponsoring institutions The various associate degree 
programs in technology do not provide the preparation and transferability 
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 merit-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

combines classroom theory with career-related work experience. Through 
co-op. students alternate semesters of full-time study with semesters of 
full-time paid employment for a total of fifty work weeks. Co-op is designed 
to enhance a student's academic training, professional growth, and 
personal development. Co-op students earn a Bachelor of Science 
degree with co-op distinction and complete the same academic require- 
ments as all other students. 

The benefits of co-op include: 1 ) Integration of theory and application, 
bringing new meaning to classroom studies and work experiences, 2) 
Professional level experience to offer potential employers after gradua- 
tion, 3) Confirmation of career decisions and invaluable professional 
contacts, 4) Development of leadership skills and self-confidence, and 5) 
Ability to finance educational expenses. 

Students are eligible after completing their freshman and sophomore 
engineering requirements provided they maintain a minimum 2.0 grade 
point average. All students are expected to work for the same employer 
throughout their co-op assignments so that they can be given progres- 
sively increasing levels of responsibility.

COLLEGE OF HUMAN ECOLOGY (HUEC) 

1 100 Marie Mount Hall, 405-2357 

Dean: Dr. Laura S. Sims 

Assistant Dean for Student Affairs: Paoletti 

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 expenences. 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

Located just 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 New 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 criteria 
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 major 
networks, it is an ideal place for the study of journalism and mass 
communication. Students have internship opportunities at a variety of 
media, non-profit, 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 series, 
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 and photojournalism. 



Entrance Requirements 



Limited enrollment status for fall 1991 is under review at the time of 
publication of this catalog. Students should check with the college or the 
office of Undergraduate Admissions for updated information. 

Degrees 

The College of Journalism offers the B.A., MA. 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) be in areas other than mass communication (such as radio- 
television-film or speech) or journalism, a minimum of 65 of those 90 
credits must be earned in liberal arts designated courses. A grade of "C" 
or better must be earned in JOUR 201 and JOUR 202 prior to taking 
courses for which they serve as prerequisites. Students must have a "C" 
average in their major. 

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 
intermediate level. The Math option requires that students complete the 
following courses: statistics, calculus and computer science. 

A support area consisting of four upper-level courses in a concentrated 
field is also required of Journalism majors. Students must also complete 
a minimum of 57 credits at the upper level. Finally, in addition to university 
graduation requirements, Journalism majors must complete additional 
liberal arts coursework with one course each in government and politics, 
public speaking, psychology and economics and one course in sociology, 
anthropology or history.

graduates. Recent college graduates may enroll in the fifty-one credit 
Master of Public Management (MPM) program which can be completed 



in two years by full-time students This program combines a rigorous 
applied course of study with practical, hands-on experience. The school 
also offers joint degree programs with the College of Business and 
Management (MPM/MBA) and the School of Law (MPM/JD). and accepts 
a small number of Ph.D. candidates each year. 

Public sector employees with a minimum of three years' work experience 
seek the Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree. This is generally a part- 
time, three-year, thirty-six credit program, but individuals wishing to 
complete the program sooner may do so by attending full-time 

Individuals who wish to improve their analytical and management skills 
without pursuing a degree may enroll in an 18-credit certificate program 
which mirrors the areas of specialization found in the masters degree 
programs.

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 manufacturing, testing and inspection of com- 
posite matenals and structures, including an autoclave, an x-ray machine, 
and a 220 Kip Uniaxial test machine with hydraulic grips. The Space 
Systems Laboratory has a water tank for investigating assembly of space 
structures in a simulated zero gravity environment together with robots 
and their associated controllers. The department's computing facilities 
include microcomputers. Sun workstations, and terminals. There is net- 
work access to many minicomputers, the campus mainframes, and 
several supercomputing centers.

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 Agncultural Sciences 
program is designed for students who are interested in a broad education 
in the field of agriculture. It is ideal for students who would like to survey 
agriculture before specializing, and for those who prefer to design their 
own specialized programs, such as International Agriculture 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.

The curriculum combines education in business and economic aspects of 
agricultural production, marketing and natural resource use with the 
biological and physical sciences. Depending on the option selected, 
graduates of the curriculum have appropriate background for management 
positions in the private sector, for positions in local, state, or federal 
agencies; for service in foreign agricultural trade and development; for 
research; for graduate school; or for farm management. 

Course requirements for the freshman and sophomore years are essentially 
the same for all students. Freshman and sophomores also fulfill the math, 
CORE and College requirements in their first two years. All majors must 
complete a core of eight courses. In addition each student must complete

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, andbeautifying 
and conserving the urban landscape using turfgrass. 

The agronomy curricula are flexible and allow the student either to 
concentrate on basic science courses that are needed for graduate work 
or to select courses that prepare for employment at the bachelor's degree 
level. 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 management 
positions with industry, international agencies, or federal and state gov- 
ernment. 

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

Assistant Professor: Sies 
Emeritus: Bode 

The Major 

American Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach 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 experience. 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 American Studies 
faculty, and sequences of courses in the disciplines usually associated 
with American Studies (i.e.. history, literature, sociology, anthropology, 
political science, and others), or pertinent courses grouped thematically 
(e.g. , Afro-American studies, women's studies, ethnic studies, comparative 
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. 

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; AMST204/Film and 
American Culture Studies; AMST 205/Material Aspects of Ameri- 
can Life; AMST 206/Business and American Culture Studies; AMST 
207/Contemporary American Cultures: 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 
429/Perspectives on Popular Culture; AMST 432/Literature and 
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 in a discipline traditionally associated with 
American Studies. The other core may be thematic. Upon entering 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. 

Traditional Disciplinary Cores 

History, Literature, Sociology/Anthropology, Art/Architectural History, 
Media Studies (Radio-TV-Film). 

Interdisciplinary or Thematic Cores

The Major 

Anthropology has been defined as "the study of humanity' because it is the 
discipline that tries to understand humans as a wholeas an animal, as a 
social being, as a literate beingfrom the very beginning of time and all over 
the world. Anthropologists try to explain differences among 
humansdifferences in their physical characteristics as well as their cus- 
toms, behavior, and attitudes. Since children learn their culture from the 
preceding 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 
adefinite asset in preparing for a variety of jobs in a number of fields 
ranging from business to the fine 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 the professional anthropologist com- 
bines the anthropology B.A with other specific knowledgeworkmg, for 
example as a city planner, development consultant, or program 
evaluatoranthropology 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 coursework 
in the four principal subdivisions of the discipline: ethnology (also known 
as cultural anthropology), archaeology, physical anthropology, and lin- 
guistics. Within each area, the department offers some degree of spe- 
cialization 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 and research 
components. 

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

The Anthropology Department has a total of four laboratones 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. 

All students have access to a twenty-workstation (IBM PS/2 50s) computer 
laboratory located at 1101 Woods Hall and 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 of 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; Majors are encouraged to 
take more than the minimum, counting up to six hours as supporting' 
(see next item); 

c. Eighteen hours of supporting courses (courses outside of an- 
thropology 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" Majors are encouraged to take 
statistics or quantitative methods course appropnate to sub-field of 
focus. 

In addition to the above requirements, anthropology majors must meet the 
requirements of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, as well as 
the requirements of the University's general education program 

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 pre-registration In addition, 
the Anthropology Department encourages students to select an academic

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 overall average. Members of this program are encouraged 
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 applications 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 comprise the object

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 and Archeology 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 African, 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 and Archeology 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 
disciplines, 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 
museums and galleries, or for law, writing and publishing, teaching, and 
any profession for which clear thinking and writing are required. 

The Department of Art History and Archeology offers two majors: Art 
History with a non-art supporting area and Art History with a supporting 
area in studio art. 

Art History Major A with non-art supporting area: 

Required courses: 

ARTH 100 Introduction to Art (3)

The Major 

The Astronomy Program offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science 
in Astronomy as well as a series of courses of general interest to non- 
majors. Astronomy majors are given a strong undergraduate preparation 
in astronomy, mathematics and physics The degree program is designed 
to prepare students for positions in government and industry laboratones 
or for graduate work in astronomy or related fields A degree in astronomy 
has also proven valuable as preparation for non-astronomical careers 
such as law or business. 

Requirements for Major 

Astronomy majors are required to take two basic courses in astronomy 
and astrophysics: ASTR 200 and ASTR 350 They are also required to 
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 sequence 
is PHYS 171. 272, 273 and the associated labs PHYS 275. 276 and 375. 
With the permission of the advisor, PHYS 161 . 262. 263 plus 375 can be 
substituted tor this sequence. Astronomy majors are also required to take 
a series of supporting courses in mathematics These are MATH 1 40. 1 4 1 , 
240 and 241. In addition. MATH 246 is strongly recommended 



The program requires that a grade ol C or better be obtained in all courses. 
Any student who wishes to be recommended tor 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 Majors 

There are a variety of astronomy courses offered for those who are 
interested in learning about the subject but do not wish to major in it. These 
courses do not require any background in mathematics or physics and are 
geared especially to the non-science major. ASTR 1 00 is a general survey 
course that briefly covers all of the major topics in astronomy. ASTR 110 
is the lab that can be taken with or after ASTR 100. Several 300-level 
courses are offered primarily for non-science students who want to learn 
about a particular field in depth, such 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 pan-time research participation which may 
develop into full-time summer projects. An honors seminar is offered for 
advanced students; credit may be given for independent work or study; 
and certain graduate courses are open for credit toward the bachelor's 
degree. Students are accepted into the Honors Program by the 
Department's Honors Committee on the basis of recommendations from 
their advisors and other faculty members. Most honors candidates submit 
a written report on their research project, which together with an oral 
comprehensive examination in the senior year, concludes the program 
which may lead to graduation "with honors (or high honors) in astronomy." 

Further information about advising and the honors program can be 
obtained by calling the Astronomy Program office at (301) 405-3001.

The Major 

This program is designed for the student who is interested in a broader 
education in the biological sciences than is available in the programs for 
majors in the various departments in the College of Life Sciences. It is 
appropriate for 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 director. In each case, advising will be carried out in the department 
in which most of the work is to be taken. 

Preparation for graduate study in a specialized area of biology is readily 
accomplished under this program by the judicious selection of junior- 
senior level courses in the proposed area of graduate concentration. 
Students in the program who are attempting to meet the requirements of 
a 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 
Science Teaching Center of the College of Education for information 
concerning the requirements for certification.

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 aircraft 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 
resources 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 en- 
gineering, 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 concentration The 
undergraduate curriculum listed below was instituted 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.

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 languages, 
software engineering, and theory of computing. Computer science in- 
corporates 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 require 
extensive numeric or symbolic computation. Computer scientists design 
and analyze algorithms 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 150, 113, 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 1 3 or CMSC 25 1 ; in CMSC 1 1 3 before 
taking CMSC 280. 330 and in CMSC 280 before taking CMSC 
31 1. Advanced placement may substitute for the CMSC 112 
requirement. 

d. At least 24 credit hours at the 300-400 levels, including CMSC 
31 1 , CMSC 330 and at least 15 credit hours of the following 
courses: 
Computer Systems: CMSC 411:412: 



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 
requirements 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 UMCP no later than Spring 
1 993 under the articulated transfer program may satisfy the older version 
of the requirements. 

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 ) 405-2672 to receive further 
information about the program. Advisors for pre-majors are located in the 
CMPS Dean's Office, 2300 Mathematics Bldg. 

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

Honors 

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

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

had three years of one foreign language or two years of each of two foreign 
languages as recorded on their high school transcripts, they are not 
required to take any foreign languages in the college, although they may 
elect to do so. 

If students are not exempt from the foreign language requirements, 
theymust complete courses through the 104 level of a modern language 
or 204 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 above, 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 
foreign language departments. Native speakers of a foreign language 
shall satisfy the foreign language requirements by taking twelve semester 
hours of English. 

English Education 

A major in English Education requires forty-five semester hours in English 
and speech. All electives in English must be approved by the student's 
advisor. Intermediate mastery of a modern or classical language is 
required.

Music Education, K-12 

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 students 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.

The Major 

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the dance 
program offers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a foun- 
dation for the dance professions. By developing an increasing awareness 
of the physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of movement in 
general, the student eventually is able to integrate his or her own particular 
mind-body consciousness into a more meaningful whole. To facilitate the 
acquisition of new movement skills, as well as creative and scholarly 
insights in dance, the curriculum provides a structured breadth 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, or general 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 re- 
maining thirty-seven credits as follows: 

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

DANC 102— Rhythmic Training 2

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 experience is highly desirable. Further

The Major 

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 systematic 
principles and analytic models which describe 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 offerings, are both 
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 Department's 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 upper-level courses on particular 
economic issues which can be taken after one or two semesters of basic 
principles. These courses can be especially useful for 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 variety of career options in both the private 
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 graduate 
work in economics or another social science, law.business or public 
administration (public policy, health, urban and regional planning, education, 
and industrial relations). 



102 Education Policy, Planning, and Administration 



Entrance Requirements 

Economics is a limited enrollment major The precise requirements for 
admission to Economics and other limited enrollment programs are under 
review Please consult the Economics Department's Adviser or the 
Undergraduate Advising Office. In 1 990- 1 991 , students admitted had at 
least a cumulative 2.50 grade point average (GPA) and completed nine 
hours of "economics entry" courses at a satisfactory grade level The 
"economics entry" courses were MATH 220 (or MATH 140), ECON 201 
and ECON 203. which had to 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 of Admission 

Requirements for Major 

In addition to the University's general education (CORE) requirements, 
the requirements for the Economics major 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 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 
Economics 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 310, ECON 311. ECON 315 (formerly ECON 415) 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 above. Additional mathematics courses beyond the 
required mathematics course (MATH 220 or 140), and computer 
programming 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 m-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 pnnciples. 
departmental honors candidates, and those intending to attending graduate 
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 
principles. 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 curriculum. 
These students should complete the advanced version of intermediate 
theory (ECON 405 and ECON 406) and the econometrics 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 1 4 1 , 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 offered only 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 dateto review 
their curriculum plans and to apply for admission to the program.

The Major 



The Electrical Engineering major is intended to prepare students to 
function as effective citizens and engineers in an increasingly technological 
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 today's problems. 

The basic foundation in mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences 
is established in the first two years of the curriculum. A core of required 
Electrical Engineering 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, engineering electromagnetics, microelectronics, 
and power systems. Within these areas are courses in such topics as solid 
state electronics, integrated circuits, lasers, communications engineering, 
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 Engineering major include thorough 
preparation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering science. 
Elective courses must 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 Engineering 
is shown below. (See College of Engineering section for suggested 
Freshman Year program.)

baccalaureate degree in engineering, the student's curriculum planning, 
guidance, and counseling will be the responsibility of the "Undesignated 
Degree Program Advisor" in the primary field department. At least one 
semester before the expected degree is to be granted, the student must 
file an "Application for Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Engineering" 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 
undesignated degree program in the same manner as they apply to the 
conventional designated degree programs. For example, the academic 
regulations of the university apply as stated in this catalog and the college 
requirement of 2.0 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 engineering education as a preparatory vehicle for entry into 
post-baccalaureate study in such fields as medicine, law, or business 
administration; (2) to provide the basic professional training for those 
students who wish to continue their engineering studies on the graduate 
level in one of the new interdisciplinary fields of engineering such as 
environmental engineering, bio-medical engineering, systems engineering, 
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 togive 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 pro- 
fessional employment in the interdisciplinary engineering fields, such as 
environmental engineering, bio-engineering, bio-medical, and systems 
and control engineering, or for preparatory entry into a variety of newer or 
interdisciplinary areas of graduate study. For example, a student con- 
templating graduate work in environmental engineering might combine 
chemical and civil engineering for his or her program; a student interested 



in systems and control engineering graduate work might combine electri- 
cal 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 engineering 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 primary field of engineering. The student, thus. 
does not make a decision whether to take the designated or the 
undesignated degree in an engineering field until the beginning of the 
junior year. In fact, the student can probably delay the decision until the 
spring term of the junior year with little or no sacrifice, thus affording the 
student ample time for decision. Either program may be taken on the 
regular four-year format or under the Maryland Plan for Cooperative 
Engineering Education.

tDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The Major 

The English Department adopted a new major effective Fall 1990. It was 
designed with three purposes in mind: 1 ) to give students a sense of the 
variety of literature written in English over the centuries; 2) to help English 
majors develop their abilities to think carefully and to express themselves 
well; and 3) to introduce students to the debates about literature that 
shape our intellectual lives. An English major is good professional 
preparation for a career in the law. government, journalism, business, 
communication, teaching, or any field that requires strong analytical and 
communication skills. 

Requirements for Major 

The English major requires 39 credits in English beyond the two required 
University writing courses. It also requires an additional 12 supporting 
credits taken in another department such as History, Philosophy or one of 
the foreign languages, chosen in consultation with the student's English 
Department advisor. 

The English major has two parts. The Core Requirements assure that 
students read widely and become aware of the questions an inquiring 
reader m ight ask of a text. The Concentration offers students the opportunity 
to read more deeply in an area of special interest. 

Core Requirements (18 credits) 
All to be taken at the 300- or 400-level 

1. English 301 Critical Methods in the Study of Literature M a j o r s 
must take 301 before they take other 300- or 400- level English 
courses. We recommend it be taken during the sophomore year. 

2. A course in British Literature emphasizing literature written before 
1670. 

3. A second course in British Literature emphasizing literature before 
1900. 

4. A course in American Literature. 

5. A course in the literature of a) African-Americans, b) peoples of 
color, or c) women. 

6. A senior seminar, to be taken in the senior year. 

"* The senior seminar may fulfill another core requirement, but no 
other course may fulfill two core requirements. 



Concentrations (12 credits) 
(Four courses beyond the Core Requirements) 

Students choose one of the following: 
1 . British and American Literature 



2. American Literature 

3. Language, Writing, and Rhetoric 
4 Creative Writing 

5. Literature of the African Diaspora 

6 Mythology and Folklore 

7. Literature by Women 

8. International Literature (special permission required) 

9. Cultural Studies (special permission required) 

10. Student Specified Concentration (special permission required) 

Electives (9 credits) 

Only two 200-level courses may be counted toward the-major. No course 
with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy the major or supporting 
area requirements. For further details on requirements, contact the 
English Department's Office of Undergraduate Studies (0139 Taliaferro, 
405-3825). 

English Education 

In conjunction with the College of Education, the English Department 
offers a special 83-credit program for students wishing to major in English 
and earn a certificate to teach English on the secondary level. For a list of 
requirements, contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies(0 1 39 Taliaferro, 
405-3825). 

Honors 

The English Department offers an extensive Honors Program, primarily 
for majors but open to others with the approval of the departmental Honors 
Committee. Interested students should ask for detailed information from 
an English Department advisor as early as possible in their college 
careers. 

The Writing Center 

The Writing Center, 1 1 26 Taliaferro Hall, 405-3785, provides free tutorial 
assistance daily to students enrolled in English courses. English 101 
students generally work with student tutors. English 391/2/3/4/5 students 
work with tutors who are retired professionals. In addition to helping 
students with writing assignments, the center prepares ENGL 101 students 
forthe English Proficiency Examination. Appointments are recommended, 
but walk-ins are welcome based on availability of tutors.

research, education, community outreach, and public service. The approach 
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, human services management, research, advocacy, 
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 organizations 
such as the Federal Drug Administration, Planned Parenthood, youth 
services, family services, 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 
intergenerational aspects of family living. It examines the pluralistic family 
forms and life styles within our complex society and the development of 
the individual within the family and the community. 

Management and Consumer Studies 

Within this major are two 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, children's issues, management, health, psychology, 
sociology, and urban affairs. Students are strongly encouraged to consult 
with an appropriate advisor in developing their course of study. 

There are parallel requirements for each of the department's majors 
(family studies, management and consumer studies and community 
studies). To graduate, students must also meet the requirements of the 
University (e.g., those specified in the CORE 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 hazardous 
conditions. 

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineering are relatively 
well-defined and the application of these principles to a modern industri- 
alized society has become a specialized activity. Control of the hazards 
in manufacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of mea- 
sures 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 principles of 
fire protection but on a thorough understanding of the special problems of 
the individual property. 

Modern fire protection utilizes a wide variety of mechanical and electrical 
equipment which the student must understand in principle before he or 
she can apply them to special problems. The fire protection curriculum 
emphasizes the scientific, technical, and humanitarian aspects of fire 
protection engineering and the development of 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 in respect to design, installation and handling, involving 
both physical and human factors; the use of buildings and transportation 
facilities to restrict the spread of fire and to facilitate the escape of 
occupants in case of fire; the design, installation and maintenance of fire 
detection and extinguishing devices and systems; and the organization 
and education of persons for fire prevention and fire protection.

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 multidisciplmary 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

The Major 



The Department of Geography offers programs of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Science degree. Many students find that the multiple per- 
spectives of geography form an excellent base fora liberal arts education. 
The abilities to write clearly and to synthesize information and concepts 
are valued highly in geographical education and practice. Students of 
geography 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 positions 
in geography require graduate training. Many geographers take positions 
in scientific research, planning, management and policy analysis for both 
government and private agencies. 

Major Requirements Including Program Options 

Within any of the specializations available in the geography major program 
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 or 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 Cirrincione, 1 1 25 LeFrak Hall, 
405-31 40. Supporting courses generally are related to the area of specialty 
in geography. The pass-fail option is not applicable to major or supporting 
courses. A minimum grade of C ineach course is required for major and 
supporting courses.

The Geography Core 

The following six courses form the minimum essential base on which 
advanced work in geography can be built: 

GEOG 201 — Geography of Environmental Systems 3 

GEOG 202— The World in Cultural Perspective 3 

GEOG 203 — Economic Geography 3 

GEOG 21 1 — Geography of Environmental Systems Laboratory 1 

GEOG 305 — Quantitative Methods in Geography 3 

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 for 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 fulfilled by taking one of the following: 
GEOG 370Cartographic Principles, GEOG 372Remote Sensing, GEOG 
373Computer Mapping, and GEOG 380Local Field Course.

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. 

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 geog- 
raphy among others, and supporting courses outside the department in 
urban 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 humans' interaction with it. 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 reproduction. The 
department offers various courses in thematic mapping, cartographic 
history and theory, map evaluation, map, photo, and image interpretation, 
computer-assisted cartography, spatial statistics, and geographic infor- 
mation 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 histoncal and locational 
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, 211. or another upper-level course reflecting this interest The 
remaining eighteen hours of the program consist of three hours of regional 
geography and fifteen hours of 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, 203. and 21 1 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 Cirrmcione, 1 125 LeFrak

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 principles 
of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics and their application to 
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 em- 
ployment 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 

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 fortheir particular interest, rather 
than for the broad needs of the professional career. Five areas of 
concentration include: Advanced Study for Graduate School, Energy and 
Mineral resources. Mineral and Materials, 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.

3) Germanic area studies. Secondary concentration and supportive 
electives are encouraged in the other foreign languages, comparative 
literature, English, history, and philosophy. Majors intending to go on to 
graduate study in the discipline are urged to develop a strong secondary 
concentration in a further area of Germanic studies; such "internal minors' 
are available in German language. German literature, Scandinavian 
studies, and Indo-European and Germanic philology. All majors must

The Department of Government and Politics oflers programs designed to 
prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, 
teaching, and a variety of graduate programs, law schools, and tor 
intelligent and purposeful citizenship. Satisfactory completion of re- 
quirements 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 gov- 
ernment justice, responsibility, and the consequences of government's 
action. More 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 socialsciences. 

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 nghts. 
These broad conceptual areas are integral components of the formal 
fields in the department. The formal fields are (1 ) American 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 majors 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. 

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

The Major 

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

The hearing and speech sciences curriculum is designed in pari to provide 
supporting coursework for majors in related fields, so most course 
offerings are available to both departmental majors and non-majors. 
Permission of instructor may be obtained for waiver of course prerequi- 
sites for non-majors wishing to take hearing and speech courses of 
interest. 

Requirements for Major 

A student majoring in hearing and speech sciences must complete thirty 
semester hours of specified courses and six semester hours of electives 
in the department to satisfy major course requirements. No course with a 
grade less than C may count toward major course requirements. In 
addition to the thirty-six semester hours needed for a major, twelve 
semester hours of supporting courses in statistics and other related fields 
are required. For these twelve hours, a C average is required.

previous background, an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills m 
Hebrew language, literature, culture, and thought. Elementary and In- 
termediate level language courses develop effective communications 
skills in modern Hebrew. Upper level language courses emphasize 
reading comprehension, vocabulary enrichment, and writing skills. More 
advanced students focus on the analytical study of major classical and 
modem 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.

HOUSING AND DESIGN (HSAD) 
College of Arts and Humanities 

1401 Marie Mount Hall, 405-4377 



Associate Professor and Chair: Chen (Acting) 
Professors: Bonta, Fabiano, Francescato 
Associate Professors: Gips, Lozner, McWhinnie 
Assistant Professors: Eckersley, Hoover, Sham, Thorpe 
Lecturers: Dean, Jacobs 

The Department of Housing and Design offers programs with concentra- 
tions in three areas: housing, interior design, and advertising design. The 
department seeks to provide professionally focused instruction in the 
theoretical foundation, methods and skills pertinent to each 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 the department. 

Housing 

The housing curriculum is designed to reflect the multidisciplmary nature 
of the field as well as the varied interests of housing majors. Consequently, 
students under the close supervision and advisement of the (acuity 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 (e.g., 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 functional 
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 residential 
interiors are stressed. Special courses include gaming simulation in 
design and seminars in theoretical concerns. A student chapter of the 
professional organization American Society of Interior Design (ASID) and 
internship opportunities provide contact with practicing professionals. 
Graduates will be qualified for entry level employment with interior design 
firms and architectural firms. Students with above average performance 
will be qualified to pursue graduate study. After considerable experience 
has been gained in professional practice, some graduates will open their 
own firm or partnership. 

Advertising Design 

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

Admission to the Design Major 

Enrollment in the Design major is limited. Admission to the University does 
not guarantee admission to the interior design or advertising design major. 
Admission to these two majors is governed by the Limited Enrollment 
program. The following criteria for admission were in effect Fall 1990. 
Changes may be forthcoming. Please contact the department or the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions for further information. Please note 
that there is no longer a "pre-design" category. 



118 Housing and Design 



Admission to the Interior Design and Advertising Design Majors: 

1 . Admission to the majors of Interior Design and Advertising Design 
is selective. Ordinarily, students are admitted to these majors 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 
ranking are admitted. The portfolio must be submitted by the 
appropriate 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 portlolio 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 UMCP and must change his or her major. 

2. The following students are exempted from the portfolio review 
requirements: 

Freshman 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 Distinguished 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 
(including NOVA) with an articulated design program may use 
transferred courses equivalent to UMCP design courses in fulfill- 
ment 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 1). 

Transfer students who have not completedd 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 
activities, hobby skills related to Interior Design and/or Advertising 
Design, job related experience in the design field, Armed Forces 
experience in design areas, etc. 

5. Students not yet admitted to the majors of Interior Design and 
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 the College Park, a transcript 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 this 
procedure. Students will be informed by mail of action taken. 

7. Deadlines for admission application (filing "Change of Major" form) 
and portfolio submission (must be received by 4:00 p.m.): 

a. Fall Semester: May 23 

b. Spring Semester: January 6 

c. Summer Session: August 15 (for students enrolled in Summer 
School) 

If deadline falls on weekend, the due date is the previous Friday.)

tDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The Department of Human Development offers: (1) a number of under- 
graduate courses in human development at the 200, 300 and 400 levels, 
including the areas of development, learning and adjustment; (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 edu- 
cational psychology, social, physiological, personality and cognitive areas 
with emphasis on the social aspects of development enhance the in- 
structional 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 service, 
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 acquire 
a positive orientation 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 principles 
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 nutrition. The depart- 
ment offers four areas of emphasis: dietetics, experimental foods, 
foodservice 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, restaurants, 
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 University (e.g. , those specified in the CORE Program) 
and the requirements of College of Human Ecology. 

Grades. All students are required to earn a C grade or better in 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 
be obtained from the department office.

Vocational-Technical Education 

The vocational-technical programs may lead either to certification as a 
vocational-industrial teacher with no degree involved or to a Bachelor of 
Science degree, including certification. The University of Maryland is 
designated as the institution which shall offer the "Trades and Industries" 
certification courses. The courses offered are those required for certification 
in Maryland. The vocational-technical curriculum requires trade compe- 
tence as specified by the Maryland State Plan for Vocational-Industrial 
Education. A person who aspires to be certified should review the state 
plan and contact the Maryland State Department of Education. If the 
person has in mind teaching in a designated school system, he or she may 
discuss his or her plans with the vocational-industrial education repre- 
sentative of that school system inasmuch as there are variations in 
employment and certification requirements. 

Vocational-Technical Degree Program 

The vocational-technical curriculum is a four-year program of studies 
leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in education. It is intended to 
develop the necessary competencies for the effective performance of the 
tasks of a vocational or occupational teacher. 

To obtain a bachelor's degree in Vocational-Technical Education, a stu- 
dent must complete 128 hours of university credit. The major is intensive 
and involves required courses in academic support, content, and pro- 
fessional areas. Five hours of elective credit should be taken with the 
advice of an advisor. An additional twelve credits of electives are included 
if student has been exempted from study teaching on the basis of prior 
experiences. 



Persons pursuing this curriculum must present documentary evidence of 
having an apprenticeship or comparable learning period and journeyman 
experience This evidence of background and training is necessary in 
order that the trade examination phase of the curriculum may be accom- 
plished. If sufficient trade experience is unavailable, such experience 
must be completed while pursuing the degree Twenty semester hours of 
credit toward the degree are granted upon satisfactory completion of the 
trade competency examination. 

Persons having completed the necessary certification courses prior to 
working on the degree program may use such courses toward meeting 
graduation requirements. However, after certification course requirements 
have been met, persons continuing studies toward a degree must take 
courses in line with the curriculum plan and University regulations. For 
example, junior level courses may not be taken until the student has 
reached full junior standing.

grams to satisfy different needs of students. Students may choose to 
major in Physical Education or in Kinesiological Sciences Descriptions of 
each program follow. 

Physical Education Major 

This curriculum, including three certification options, prepares students 

(1 ) for teaching physical education in elementary and secondary schools. 

(2) for coaching, and (3) for leadership in youth and adultgroups which offer 
a program of physical activity Students are referred to the section on the 
College of Education for information on teacher education application 
procedures. The first two years of this curriculum are considered to be an 
orientation period in which the student has an opportunity to gam 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 materially increase the 
vocational opportunities which are available to graduates in physical 
education. 

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

The Physical Education program requires a grade of "C" or better in all but 
general education and free elective courses. 

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 Performance 
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 recom- 
mendation 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 and maintain a 2.5 GPA. 

Uniforms 

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



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 curriculum. 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.

The Major 

The Linguistics Department offers courses on many aspects of language 
study and an interdisciplinary major leading to a Bachelor of Arts. 
Language is basic to many human activities and linguistics relates to many 
other disciplines which include work on language. 

Work on language has provided one of the main research probes 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 
proven to be a fruitful means to cast light on the 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, variable 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 person's 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 
primarily 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 "GrammaticalTheory and Language". 
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 400Speech 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 Meaning 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 specializations.

The Major 

The development and production of novel materials has become a maior 
issue in all fields of engineering. Materials which are strong and light at the 
same time are needed for space structures: faster electro-optical switching 
materials will result in improved mass communications: and high tem- 
perature plastics would improve the efficiency of transportation systems 
Many of today's materials requirements can be met by composites. The 
materials engineering program provides the student with an interdiscipli- 
nary 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 production and 
quality control in the traditional materials industries to the molecular 
construction of electronic materials in ultra-clean environments. 

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

The Major 



Nuclear Engineenng deals with the practical use of nuclear energy from 
nuclear fission, fusion and radioisotope sources. The major use of nuclear 
energy is in electric power generation. Other uses are in the areas of 
chemical processing, medicine, instrumentation, and isotope trace analy- 
sis. The nuclear engineer is primarily concerned with the design and 
operation of energy conversion devices ranging from very large reactors 
to miniature nuclear batteries, and with the use of nuclear reactions in 
many environmental, biological and chemical processes. Because of the 
wide range of uses for nuclear systems, the nuclear engineer finds 
interesting and diverse career opportunities in a variety of companies and 
laboratories. Students may use nuclear engineering as a field of con- 
centration in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program. 

Requirements for Major 

The curriculum is composed of: (1) the required University general 
education (CORE) requirements: (2) a core of mathematics, physics, 
chemistry, and engineering sciences required of all engineering students; 
(3) fifteen credits of courses selected within a secondary field; (4) twenty- 
seven credits of nuclear engineering courses including ENNU 215, 440,

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 betler in 
each course, the following: 

1. The introductory sequence MATH 140, 141. 240, 241 or the 
corresponding honors sequence MATH 250. 251. 

2. Eight MATH/MAPL/STAT courses at the 400 level or higher, at 
least four of which are taken at College Park. 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 10 or equivalent ) 

(d) MATH410(completionofMATH250-251 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 41 0-420. 

(f) The remaining 400 level MATH/MAPL/STAT courses are 
electives, but cannot include any of: MATH 400. 461 . 478-488. 
or STAT 464. EDCI 451 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 
Undergraduate Office, substitute two courses (with strong 
mathematics content) from outside the Mathematics Depart- 
ment 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 Off cebut 
they would have to make use of mathematical ideas, comparable 
to the sequences on this list 

(a) i) PHYS 161,262,263 
ii) PHYS 171.272.273 

iii) PHYS 1 4 1 . 1 42. and an upper level physics course approved 
by the Mathematics Department

(d) CHEM 103. 113.233 

(e) ECON 201 . 203. and one of ECON 405 or 406 
(0 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, 4 1 and 4 1 1 in their programs MATH 463 (or 660) 



Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation 129 



and MATH 432 (or 730) are also desirable Other courses (rom 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 ot 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 410 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, 2 1 1 are also 
suggested. 

5. Applied mathematics: the courses which lead most rapidly to 
applications 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. Con- 
centration in this area is good preparation for employment in 
government and industry or for graduate study in applied math- 
ematics. 

Advising 

Advising for math majors is mandatory. Students are required to sign up 
for an advising appointment at the math undergraduate office window 
(1117 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 during the first semester of their junior 
year. To graduate with honors in mathematics they must pass a three-hour 
written comprehensive examination. Six credits of graduate work and six 
credits of 400 level courses in math are also required.. A precise statement 
of the requirements may be found in the Math Undergraduate Office. 

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

Participants in the University Honors Program may also enroll in special 
honors sections of the regular calculus sequence (MATH 140H, 141H, 
240H, 241 H). Students 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 Univer- 
sity Honors Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does not imply 
acceptance in the other. Neither honors calculus sequence is a prerequi- 
site 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 offering 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 Place- 
ment Examination, passing standardized CLEP examinations, and through 
the department's Credit-by-Examination. Students are urged to consult 
with advisors from the Department of Mathematics to assist with proper 
placements. 

Statistics and Probability, and Applied Mathematics 

Courses in statistics and probability and applied mathematics are offered 
by the Department of Mathematics. These courses are open to non- 
majors as well as majors, and carry credit in mathematics. Students 
wishing to concentrate in the above may do so by choosing an appropriate 
program under the Department of Mathematics. 

Mathematics Education 

Students completing an undergraduate major in astronomy, physic.physical 
sciences, or in math, or who may be enrolled int he College of Education, 
may prepare to teach astronomy, physics, physical science, or math. 
Early contact should be made with either Dr. John Layman (astronomy, 
physics, physical sciences) or Dr. James Fey (mathematics). See also the

The Department of Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation offers courses 
in measurement, applied statistics, and algorithmic methods for under- 
graduates. The department is primarily graduate oriented and offers 
programs at the master's and doctoral level for persons with quantitative 
interests from a variety of social science and professional backgrounds. 
In addition, a doctoral minor is offered for students majoring in other areas. 
The doctoral major is intended primarily to produce individuals qualified to 
teach courses at the college level in applied measurement, statistics and 
evaluation, generate original research and serve as specialists in mea- 
surement, applied statistics or evaluation in school systems, industry or 
government. The master's level program is designed to provide individu- 
als with a broad range of data management, analysis and computer skills 
necessary to serve as research associates in academia, government, and 
business. At the doctoral level, a student may choose a specialty within 
one of three areas: applied or theoretical measurement, applied statistics, 
and program evaluation.

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 basic fundamentals. These include: physics, 
chemistry, mathematics, computers, mechanics of solids and fluids, 
thermodynamics, materials, heat transfer, controls, and design. The 
curriculum includes basic laboratory courses in fluid mechanics, materials 
engineering, electronic instrumentation and measurements, and a senior 
laboratory which provides an introduction to professional research and 
evaluation procedures. 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 
encountered after graduation and also helps to establish valuable con- 
tacts with professional engineers. 

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

1 1nstitute for Physical Science and Technology 

The Department of Meteorology offers a limited number of courses of 
interest to undergraduate students. Undergraduate students interested in 
pursuing a bachelor's degree program preparatory to further study or work 
in meteorology are urged to consider the Physical Sciences Program. 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 , 
272, 273 or the series PHYS 161, 262, 263; the mathematics series MATH 
140, 141,240, 241, 246 and either the series CHEM 103, 113orCHEM 
1 05, 1 1 5. Consult the Approved Course Listing for electives in meteorol- 
ogy. 

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

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 ratherthan a body of doctrine. Thus, in all courses 
students can expect to receive concentrated training in thinking clearly 
and inventively and in expressing themselves exactly about philosophical 
issues. This training has general applicability to all professions in which 
intellectual qualities are highly valued, such as law, medicine, govern- 
ment, publishing and business management. With this in view the major 
in philosophy is designed to serve the interests of the majority 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 

Note: The Philosophy curriculum is currently under review. Students 
matriculating after June 1 , 1 991 should consult a department advisor 
for major requirements. 

The department requirements for a major in philosophy are as follows: (1 ) 
a total of 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. 

Courses for Non-Majors 

The following are among the courses giving the general student training 
in rigorous thinking, experience in critical and imaginative reflection on 
philosophical problems or familiarity with the philosophical foundations of 
Western and other cultures: PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy), PHIL 
1 1 (Plato's Republic), PHIL 1 40 (Contemporary Moral Issues), PHIL 1 70 
(Introduction to Logic), PHIL 1 73 and 1 74 (Logic and the English Language 
I and II), PHIL 236 (Philosophy of Religion), PHIL 243 (Philosophy of Rural 
Life), PHIL 341 (Ethical Theory), and the historical courses: 31 0,31 6, 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 
438 (Topics in Philosophical Theology), PHIL 385 (Philosophy and 
Computers), PHIL 450 and 451 (Scientific Thought I and II), PHIL 452 
(Philosophy of Physics), PHIL 455 (Philosophy of the Social Sciences), 
PHIL 456 (Philosophy of Biology), PHIL 457 (Philosophy of History), PHIL 
458 (Topics in the Philosophy of Science), PHIL480, 481 . 482 (Philosophy 
of Psychology), PHIL 468 (Topics in Philosophy of Language and Logic), 
PHIL 472 (Philosophy of Mathematics), and PHIL 474 (Induction and 
Probability). PHIL485 (Philosophy of Neuroscience),PHIL487 (Computer 
Science for Cognitive Studies), PHIL 488 (Topics in Philosophy 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). 



134 Physical Education 



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 Distributive Justice, Responsibility of Professionals, Environmental 
Ethics, and the Morality of Forced Military Draft.

Meteorology: Robock 
Physics: Kacser 

Purpose 

This program is suggested for many types of students: those whose 
interests cover a wide range of the physical sciences; those whose 
interests have not yet centered on any one science; students interested 
in a career in an interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences; 
students who seek a broader undergraduate program than is possible in 
one of the traditional physical sciences; students interested in meteorology; 
preprofessional students (pre-law, pre-medical); or students whose in- 
terests 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, meteorol- 
ogy, 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 (1 1 or 12 credits); CHEM 103 and 113, 
or 105 and 1 15 (8 credits); PHYS 162. 262, 263 (1 1 credits); or PHYS 171. 
272. 273. 275. 276. 375 (14 credits); CMSC 1 10 (4 credits); or 1 12/1 13 (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 twenty-four 
credits at the 300 or 400 level, chosen from any three of the following 
disciplines: chemistry, physics, mathematics (including statistics), as- 
tronomy, geology, meteorology, computer science, and one of the engi- 
neering disciplines, subject to certain limitations. The twenty-four distribu- 
tive 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 offered by the Department of Chemical Engineering 
and the Department of Materials and Nuclear Engineering; courses 
offered as engineering sciences, ENES. will be considered as a depart- 
ment 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 they wish to use in satisfying the requirements of 
the 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 
from the CMPS Undergraduate Office. 

Honors 

The Physical Sciences Honors Program offers students the opportunity 
for research and independent study. Interested students should request 
details from their advisor.

tDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The Major 

Psychology can be classified as a biological science (Bachelor of Science 
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 for learning 
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 behavior tend to choose a program 
leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, while those interested primarily 
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. 

Requirements for Major 

Graduation requirements are the same for the Bachelor of Science and 
Bachelor of Arts degrees. Students must take at least 35 credits in 
Psychology including 14 credits at the 400 level. PSYC 386, 387, 478 and 
479 may not be included in those 35 required credits. The required 
courses include PSYC 100, 200 and two laboratory courses chosen from 
PSYC 400, 410, 420 and 440. In order to assure breadth of coverage, 
Psychology courses must have been divided into four areas. The 35 credit 
total must include at least two courses from two of the four areas and at 
least one course from each of the remaining areas. The areas and courses 
are: 

Area I: 206, 301, 310, 400, 401, 402, 403, 404, 405, 410, 453;

core program must be taken before 400 level electives Students are 
urged to examine the catalogue and check with their advisors to determine 
the appropriate prerequisites to the courses they may wish to take 

Students may concentrate in a variety of fields within the major, but are 
urged to sample a wide variety of courses. 

RTVF 124 and 314 do not count toward the major. 

Supporting Courses 

Fifteen credits in a coherent body of supporting courses, usually in one 
department, relevant to an Arts & Humanities major. Nine of these credits 
must be at the 300 or 400 level. 

Admission (proposed limited enrollment standards): 

Enrollment in the program in Radio. Television, and Film is limited A small 
number of academically talented freshman can be admitted directly into 
the program: National Merit Finalists, National Achievement Finalists, 
Francis Scott Key Scholars, Banneker Scholars. Maryland Distinguished 
Scholars Finalists, and students with a combined SAT score of 1200 
coupled with a minimum of 3.00 high school GPA in academic subjects. 

Admission (fall 1990 criteria) for all others requires that the UMCP or 
transfer student has: 

1 . Earned at least twenty-eight credits with a grade point average of 
2.6 (this average includes transfer credit grades):

Assistant Professors: Lekic, Martin (Germanic and Slavic), Kaminski, 
Tismaneanu (Government and Politics) 
Instructor: Brin (Germanic and Slavic) 
Lecturer: Manukian (Government and Politics) 

The Major 

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 element 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. Student 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, 1 02, 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 sciencesgovemment 
and politics, economics, geography, and sociologytake 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 Lit- 
eratures, the following Russian Area courses are regularly offered. 
Students should check the Schedule of Classes each semester.

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 and personality, 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, hu- 
man resources management, and many other policy-making and admin- 
istrative 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 
students 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 curnculum a valuable career choice 

Requirements for Major 

The following represent new requirements effective Spnng. 1991 All 
students declaring Sociology as their major pnor to Spnng, 1991 will 
continue to operate under the old requirements. 

Students in sociology must complete 50 hours of departmental require- 
ments, none of which may be taken pass/fail Thirty-eight of thesehours 
are in sociology coursework, which must be completed with a minimum 
grade of C in each course; 20 hours are in required courses and 18 hours 
are sociology electives. of which twelve are required at the 400 level, and 
an additional two are required at any level Required courses for all maiors 
are SOCY 100 (Introduction). SOCY 201 ' (Statistics). SOCY 203 (Theory), 
and SOCY 202 (Methods). SOCY 441 (Stratification) and one additional 
upper level methods course." 



Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures 139 



The required 50 credit hours reflect the fact that SOCY 201 and 202 are 
four- hour courses. For transfer students or those with equivalent courses 
which are only three-hour courses, exceptions to this fifty hour require- 
ment may be made by the Coordinator ot the Sociology Undergraduate 
Program. 

SOCY 100 should be taken in the freshman or sophomore year followed 
by SOCY 203. Three hours of mathematics (MATH 1 1 1 or its equivalent 
or higher) are required of majors as a prerequisite of SOCY 201 . SOCY 
202 follows SOCY 201. SOCY 441 (stratification) and one additional 
upper level methods course should be taken by the second semester of 
the junior year. 

The supporting course requirement for 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 hours must be taken 
at the 400 level. It is strongly recommended that the student work out an 
appropriate supporting sequence for the particular specialization with the 
department advisor.

program, careers, and other topics may be obtained from the Sociology 
Undergraduate Advisor, 2108 Art/Sociology Building, 405-6389. 

Fieldwork and internship Opportunities 

Although internships are not a requirement for a major, students are 
strongly urged to consider the internship program offered by the depart- 
ment or through the Experiential Learning Office located in Hornbake 
Library. Majors may receive up to six credits in SOCY 386/387 by the 
combination of working in an internship/volunteer position plus doing 
some academic project in conjunction with the work experience. A 
prerequisite of 1 2 credits in Sociology coursework is also required. 

Honors 

The objective of the Honors Program in the Department of Sociology is to 
encourage and recognize superior scholarship by providing an opportu- 
nity for interested, capable, and energetic undergraduate students to 
engage in study in an area of the student's interest under the close 
supervision of a faculty mentor. The honors program is based upon tutorial 
study and independent research. 

Students who have an overall cumulative grade point average of at least 
3.3, a cumulative average of 3.5 in Sociology courses, and who have 
taken at least 9 credits in Sociology may apply. Transfer students with 
equivalent academic records at other accredited institutions are also 
eligible. Admission to the program will be based upon academic perfor- 
mance, and the judgment of the Undergraduate Committee on the degree 
to which the applicant has sufficient maturity and interest to successfully 



complete the requirements for graduation with Honors Further informa- 
tion on the honors program is available from the Sociology Undergraduate 
Office. 

Student Organizations 

The Sociology Collective, a group open to all Sociology majors, was 
organized by a group of interested undergraduates to fill student needs 
within the Sociology community. The Collective provides information 
about topics of interest, including department activities, career planning, 
relevant changes with the university, and strives to enhance the sense of 
community within the department. Representatives of the Collective 
participate on faculty committees within the department and thereby 
provide the undergraduate perspective on policy issues. 

Alpha Kappa Delta is the National Honor Society for Sociology majors. 
Membership is based on Sociology G.P.A. (3.0) and overall G.P A. (3.0). 
Students may apply after they have completed 18 credits in Sociology 
coursework. This organization's activities focus on providing tutoring 
services for undergraduates in the core 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 laboratory, a computer-aided design 
laboratory, and an historic textiles/costume collection Students in Tex- 
tiles and Consumer Economics may select one of four majors which offer 
diverse professional opportunities. Specific careers depend on the major 
area of emphasis although there is overlapping of career opportunities m 
some instances reflecting similar course requirements. The majors of- 
fered by the department are as follows:
