HISTORY 




In 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. 



Just after the American Revolu- 
tion, the state of Maryland 
established its first 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 experimented with a dif- 
ferent agricultural crop After the 
Civil 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 bring prosperi- 
ty to Maryland, and when the col- 
lege expanded its offerings into 
engineering, business, and the 



y 




liberal arts. In 1912 the old Gothic 
building bumed, and the state 
provided modem structures. 
Women were admitted to the 
campus, and graduate work 
began. In 1920 the college combin- 
ed with the long-established pro- 
fessional schools of Baltimore and 
changed its name to the Universi- 
ty of Maryland. Growth ac- 
celerated after 1935 when the 
politically astute football coach, 
H.C. 'Curley' Byrd became presi- 
dent, added scores of 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 
Assembly 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.

Opportunities for conducting 

research abound at the Univereit) 
of Maryland College 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 runnel, computer- 
assisted cartographic laboratories, a 
psycholinguistics laboratory, a 
Superconductivity' Research 
Center, the Laboratory for Plasma 
and Fusion Studies, the Develop- 
mental Psychology Laboratory, the 
Center on Aging, the S) 
Research Center, the Engineering 
Research Center, the Center for 
Renaissance and Baroque Studies, 
and the Agricultural Experiment 
Station. Off campus. Univen 
Maryland at College Park scientists 
placed a Lew I nog) charged 
Particle experiment on board 
Voyager 2, which passed Neptune 
in August, 1989; others are involv- 
ed in the development of the 
world's largest array of radio 
telescopes housed at the Hat 
Creek Observatory oi the Universi- 
ty of California at Berkelev 
is leading a multi-institutional ex- 
cavation of the ruined city oi 
Caesarea Mantima in Israel where 
Pontius Pilate lived while serving 
as Roman governor o! ludea Aid- 



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

university s unique location just 
lit miles from downtown 
Washington, D.C., and approx- 
imate!} 50 miles from both An- 
napolis and Baltimore enhances 
the research oi its faculty and 
students because ol its access to 
some oi the finest libraries and 
research centers in the country. 
These include the National In- 
stitutes of 1 lealth, the Smithsonian 
Institution, the USDA Beltsville 
National Agricultural Research 
Center and National Agricultural 
Library, the Library of Congress, 
the National Archives, the Folger 
Shakespeare Library, and many 
other academic and special 
libraries. In the Baltimore area, in 
addition to the university's own 
libraries at Baltimore County and 
on the professional campus in 
Baltimore City, are the Enoch Pratt 
Free Library and the Maryland 
Historical Association Library. The 
state capital at Annapolis is the 
site of the Maryland Hall of 
Records.

ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS AND 
APPLICATION PROCEDURES 



FRESHMAN ADMISSION 

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 1 00 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; three years of mathematics courses equivalent at least 
to Algebra I, Algebra II, and Plane Geometry; and two years of a foreign 
language. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to take a fourth 
year of mathematics. 

High School Record 

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 Admission prior to enrolling. All 
offers of admission are contingent upon satisfactory completion of current 
work. 

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. 

Each applicant's previous academic achievement is reviewed according 
to the information available on the student's high school transcript. The 
Admission Committee considers the following academic criteria when 
evaluating candidates for admission: nature and rigor of course load, 
grades in academic courses, progress as reflected in grades over time 
and performance compared with high school peers. High school grades 
will be reviewed in context of the level of course work taken. 

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. 

Additional Criteria 

While standardized test scores and grade-point averages play an impor- 
tant role in the admission process, they are not the sole factors in 
determining a candidate's admissibility. A list of cocurricular activities in 
high school is requested on the application. An optional essay and letters 
of recommendation also will be considered. The Admission Committee 
may review a student in light of his or her unique talents and abilities. 
Students with accomplishments in art, music, leadership and other 
cocurricular endeavors should make this information available to the 
Office of Undergraduate Admission. 

Application Forms 

Application forms may be obtained by writing to the Office of Undergradu- 
ate Admission, Mitchell Building, University of Maryland, College Park, 
MD 20742-5235, or by calling (301 ) 31 4-8385. Application forms may be 
obtained in many high school guidance offices, as well. 

Application Fee 

A non-refundable $30.00 application fee is required with each application. 

Modified Rolling Admission Plan 

The University of Maryland at College Park strongly urges that all 
applicants apply early before stated deadlines to assure consideration for 
admission. Because of space limitations, the campus may not be able to 
offer admission to all qualified applicants. A completed application will 
include official high school transcript and SAT or ACT report, application 
and $30.00 fee. 

For freshman applicants the University of Maryland at College Park uses 
a modified rolling admission process. The following chart describes the 
notification procedures for fall semester applicants. 

Deadlines for Fall Semester Freshman Admission

Special Admission Options 

To serve students who are not typical freshmen, the University of 
Maryland at College Park has developed special options for admission: 

Admission Options for High Achieving High School Students 

1. Concurrent Enrollment: Talented high school seniors have the op- 
portunity to enroll at the University of Maryland at College Park for two 
courses, or seven credits, each semester. Successful applicants will 
have pursued a rigorous high school program and will have indicated 
exceptional performance and ability achieved over time. To apply, 
students must submit a) the completed application and fee, and b) high 
school transcript, c) an essay explaining why they are interested in the 
program, d) a letter of recommendation from the high school, and e) 
a letter of permission from the parents or guardian. Students must live 
within commuting distance. Tuition is assessed on a per-credlt-hour 
basis. All mandatory fees apply in full. 

2. Summer Enrollment: High school students with a minimum 3.00 
grade-point average may enroll for courses during the summer pre- 
ceding their junior or senior year. They must file a regular application 
and transcript. Tuition is assessed on a per-credit hour basis. All 
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 will consider for admission 
a limited number of gifted students who have completed at least the 
seventh grade. Competitive applicants must have a superior aca- 
demic record as measured by grades and standardized test scores. 
Students must have an initial conference with a member of the 
Undergraduate Admission staff. The Admission 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. For additional 
information about the admission process for students with docu- 
mented learning disabilities, please contact the Office of Undergradu- 
ate Admission. 

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 

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 Admission 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-matler 
courses. 

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 for grades of 3 or higher only, subject to 
departmental reevaluation 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. 



Admission to Limited-Enrollment Programs (LEP) 

Certain colleges, schools, and departments within the university have 
taken steps to limit their enrollment in order to maintain quality programs. 
For the 1 992-93 academic year, these will include: School of Architecture ; 
College of Business and Management; College of Engineering; Depart- 
ment of Government and Politics; Department of Housing and Design; 
College of Journalism; Department of Psychology; Department of Radio, 
Television, and Film: Department of Special Education; and all teacher 
education majors. 

Freshmen: Admission for new freshmen to Limited Enrollment Programs 
is determined on a space-available basis. Most freshmen will gam 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 3 



entrance to the major of their choice. Because space may be limited tor 
a particular major, early application is encouraged. Freshmen who are 
directly admitted to an LEP will be subject to a performance review when 
they complete 45 college credits. The review varies from program to 
program, but always includes satisfactory performance in a set of appro- 
priate courses. Students not passing the review will be required to choose 
another major. See the academic program description for specific details. 

Freshmen not directly admitted to an LEP may enroll in the Division of 
Letters and Sciences. Students are not guaranteed admission to an LEP 
at a later date, although they may gain admission by meeting the 
requirements outlined in their particular program by the time they com- 
plete 56 credits at College Park. See the following section on LEP transfer 
admissions and the LEP program descriptions for further details. 

Transfers: Transfer students and on-campus students wishing to change 
their major to an LEP must meet a set of gateway courses with minimum 
grades in order to be admitted to the program. Space is limited in each 
program, and the most qualified applicants will be admitted each semes- 
ter. Students will have one opportunity only to apply to a particular LEP. 
and complete the gateway requirement by the semester in which they 
complete 56 credits. See the academic program description elsewhere in 
this catalog for specific requirements. 

Transfer students who are not directly admissible to an LEP upon 
application to the university will be assigned to an alternate major. 
Students with fewer than 56 credits will be assigned to the Division of 
Letters and Sciences, and will be allowed one opportunity to meet the 
gateway requirements by the time they complete 56 credits. Students with 
more than 56 credits will be required to choose another major for which 
they are qualified and. because of their advanced credit level, will not be 
given a subsequent opportunity to apply to the LEP. A limited number of 
students in extraordinary circumstances will be considered under appeal 
for each LEP. Contact the Counselor for Limited Enrollment Programs at 
(301 ) 31 4-8378 for further information. 



Preprofessional Programs and Options 

The University of Maryland at College Park offers preprofessional advis- 
ing 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 choos- 
ing 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 
another college-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.

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. The University of Maryland at College Park tuition 
is waived. Golden ID students may register for a maximum of three 
courses per term. Golden ID students are not eligible for Consortium 
courses with the tuition waiver. 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. It is proposed 
that beginning in Fall 1 992, Golden ID students will pay certain mandatory 
fees as do other students. 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. Addi- 
tional information may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate 
Admission, Mitchell Building, (301) 314-8385. or the Golden ID Student 
Program, 0119 Hornbake 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 
admission counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admission, as well as 
the Office of Minority Student Education, 1 101 Hornbake 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 the 
Office of Undergraduate Admission for further information. 

Returning Students and Veterans 

Applicants who have not attended school for more than five years, or who 
have had military experience, should contact both an admission 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 
theircumulative grade-point averages and from the credits applied toward 
graduation requirements. For more information, consult the section on 
Academic Regulations and Requirements. 



INTERNATIONAL STUDENT 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.

6 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



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 
atthe 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 G.C.E. 
"Ordinary" level examinations, or the Baccalaureate; 3) transcripts of any 
university level studies completed in the United States or elsewhere. 
Original documents 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 Engineering, regardless 
of where they have studied, must present SAT scores. Admission to 
limited-enrollment majors (see "Admission to Limited-Enrollment Majors" 
for identification of these majors) requires international students to have 
marks of no less than "excellent" in previous education. 

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



Application Deadlines 



All applicants must submit all foreign educational credentials, including 
certified English translations if the original documents are in a language 
other than English. All admission decisions will be released on a rolling 
basis. 

1 . All non-immigrants holding visas A. E. F, G. H. I. J and L must meet 
the following application deadlines: 

Fall semester — March 1 
Spring semester— August 1 

2. Permanent residents with foreign documents and U.S. citizens 
with foreign documents should submit their completed applications 
by the following deadlines: 

Fall semester — April 30 
Spring semester— November 1 



Return of Foreign Records 

Transcripts records and mark sheets of applicants with foreign credentials 
are maintained by the office of Undergraduate Admissions tor two years. 
If these documents are original copies, the student must request their 
return within two years of application. At the end of this period, the records 
are destroyed. 

Immigrant Students 

Immigrant applicants for admission at the undergraduate level are ad- 
missible under the same guidelines as U.S. citizens EXCEPT that 
applicants, including transfer applicants, whose native language is other 
than English must ALSO demonstrate a satisfactory level of English 
proficiency to pursue an approved course of study. 



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 transler 
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 3.0. All students with grade-point averages below 
3.0 will be considered on a space available basis. In accordance with 
Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer 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 ongmal 
institution must be reinstated there before being considered for admission 
to the University of Maryland at College Park. 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 7 



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. 

Articulated transfer programs are available at each Maryland community 
college. 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 appro- 
priate courses specified in the articulated program and earns an accept- 
able grade, he she is guaranteed transfer with no loss of credit. Articulated 
transfer programs help students plan their new programs after changing 
career objectives. Computerized articulation information, called ARTSYS. 
is available at the Office of Undergraduate Admission 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 trans- 
fer of courses by following articulated programs. 

Transfer of Credits 

An official review of transfer credit occurs after admission to College Park, 
with final determination of applicability made by an academic advisor/ 
evaluator in the office of the appropriate dean for the major. Generally, 
college-level courses completed at regionally-accredited institutions will 
transfer, provided that grades of at least "C" are earned and the course 
content is similar in content and scope to work offered at College Park. The 
regional accrediting bodies are: 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; 
and Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Up to 60 credits from 
a community or two-year college or up to 90 credits from a four-year 
institution may be considered for transfer. Students are required to 
complete at least their final 30 credits on the College PaTk campus to earn 
a degree. 

Transfer of course work completed at Maryland public colleges and 
universities is covered by the Maryland Higher Education Commission 
(MHEC) transfer policies (see complete text later in this section). College 
Park will accept grades of "D" or better from appropriate course work 
completed at a regionally-accredited Maryland public institution, including 
other campuses of the University of Maryland System. 

Each college-level course will be evaluated individually, with applicability 
toward major or general education requirements determined by the 
appropriate academic unit. College Park does not transfer blocks of 
courses, such as those completed through the Associate's Degree. See 
the appropriate sections of the catalog for specific general education and 
major requirements. 

Credit will be posted to the College Park record only from official tran- 
scripts sent from the institution at which the credit was completed. 
Students who have earned credit through Advanced Placement (AP) or 
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject area exams must 
have scores sent directly from the testing board, even if they are already 
posted on a transcript from another institution. 

College courses taken at a high school and taught by high school faculty 
are not transferable to College Park, even if they are given in cooperation 
with a regionally-accredited college or university.

8 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



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-second- 
ary 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 Commission's 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 ot 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 primary 
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 trans- 
ferring 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 
students; 

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

Provide a system of 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 cumujative 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 enroll- 
ment, 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 ot the (acuity 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- 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 9 



munity college lo assure the transferability ot 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 admis- 
sible 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. 

c. 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 pro- 
gram requirement, but in no case more than 70 credits, and to 
the first two years of the undergraduate educational experience. 

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 practical 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. 

II. POLICIES TO PROMOTE THE ACADEMIC SUCCESS AND GEN- 
ERAL WELL-BEING OF TRANSFER STUDENTS' 

A. By the Sending Institutions: 

1 . Students who enroll at Maryland community colleges shall be

disruption. Transfer students shall not be required to repeat 
equivalent coursework successfully completed at the community 
college. 

B. Appeal Process: 

1 . A campus-based system of appeals which will not exceed three 
levels shall be implemented at each institution. The procedures 
for appeal shall be published in the college's catalog and 
student handbook.

procedure and be advised and counseled on the appeal process. 

C. Periodic Review: 

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

and procedures outlined in this plan. The Transfer Coordinator 
shall also assist in interpreting transfer policies to the individual 
student and to the institution

Determination of In-State Status for Admission, Tuition, and Charge 
Differential Purposes: See Appendix H 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 ol 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.

FEES. EXPENSES AND FINANCIAL AID 



FEES AND EXPENSES 
Student Accounts Office 

1 135 Lee Building. 405-9041 and 403-4641 

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 sponsors 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 expen- 
sive. Information regarding these plans is available by calling 1 -800-343- 
0911. 

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, 
1135 Lee Building, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

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

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

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

Students will incur a late payment fee in the event of failure to pay a 
balance on their student account by its due date. A late payment fee of 
$1 0.00 or 5%. whichever is higher, will be assessed in addition to payment 
for the total past due amount An additional 1 54% late fee will be charged 
monthly if the account is not settled 



Students who fail to pay the indebtedness during the semester in which 
delinquency occurs will be ineligible to preregister for subsequent semes- 
ters until the debt and the penalty fees are cleared. 

In the event of actual registration for a subsequent semester by a 
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. 

The state has established, under legislative mandate, a Central Collec- 
tions Unit (CCU) within the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning. 
The university is required by state law to refer all delinquent accounts to 
the State Collections Unit. Please note that Maryland law allows the 
Central Collections Unit to intercept state income tax refunds for 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. 

State central unit collection costs incurred in collecting delinquent ac- 
counts will be charged to the student. The minimum collection fee is 1 5% 
plus attorney and/or court costs. 

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

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

Prior to 1st day of classes 
1st 10 days of classes 
3rd week 
4th week 
5th week 
After 5th week 



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



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

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

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

No part of the charges for room and board is refundable except when 
students officially withdraw from the university or when they are given 
permission by the appropriate officials of the university to move from the 



residence halls and/or to discontinue dining hall privileges. In these cases, 
the room refund will be computed by multiplying the number of periods 
remaining by the pro rata weekly rate after adjusting for a service charge. 
Refunds to students having full board contracts will be calculated in a 
similar manner. No room and/or board refunds will be made after the 
fourteenth week of the semester. Students are reminded that reservations 
for room and board must be 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.

0102 Lee Building, 314-8313 

Applying for financial aid, receiving financial aid. and keeping financial aid 
does 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 
1 5, 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 1 5. 1 992 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 whe/i considenng dropping 
below 12 credit hours for any given semester. 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 15 



Citizenship Status 

Students must be United States citizens or eligible non-citizens in order 
to be eligible lor 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." 

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 statement 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, students must maintain 
full-time status. 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 1991-92 
academic year was as follows: 

Dependent Student Living on Campus 

out-of-state: $7,807.00 



$15,019.00 



Notes: 1. The above budget is subject to change for the 1992-93 
academic year.

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. The SEOG is awarded based upon 
need and the FAF processed by the February 15 priority deadline. 

University Grant. The university administers this need-based program to 
students. Applicants who have at least a 3.0 GPA and whose FAF is 
processed by February 1 5th are considered for this grant. The University 
Grant is awarded based upon need and the FAF processed by the 
February 15 priority deadline. 

UMCP Grant. This need-based grant is administered by the university. To 
be considered, students must have their FAF processed by February 1 5. 
the priority deadline for 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. The Perkins Loan is awarded based upon need 
and the FAF processed by the February 15 priority deadline. 

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 1 2%. Repayment 
begins 60 days after disbursement of the loan. In all cases, the key to 
obtaining one of these loans is finding a bank or lender willing to make the 
loan. The recommended application filing deadline is July 31st. NOTE: 
Effective August 17, 1988, students must complete an FAF before a 
Supplemental Loan can be processed. 

Part-time Employment 

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

College Work-Study Program 

Under provisions 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. Under the 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. College Work-Study is awarded based upon need and the FAF 
processed by the February 1 5 priority deadline. 

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. 314-8044.

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid 
Credit Requirements/Maximum Time Frame 

Federal legislation governing the administration of the Pell Grant, the 
Perkins Loan (formerly National Direct Student Loan), the Supplemental 
Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG), the College Work-Study (CWS) 
Program, the Stafford Loan (formerly Guaranteed Student Loan), 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 Stan- 
dards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) have been established. 
All recipients of the above-mentioned forms of financial aid are subject to 
these standards for renewal or receipt of their federal financial aid. 

What You Must Do To Keep Your Aid 

1. Grade Requirements 

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. 

2. Credit Requirements 

All students must successfully complete a minimum credit require- 
ment. Depending upon the student's semester (total number of se- 
mesters of attendance), the student must earn a specified number of 
credit hours. SUMMER ATTENDANCE DOES NOT COUNT AS A 
SEMESTER. Use the following chart as a guide:

tional coursework. 
"Does not include Pell Grant. 

Summer Study Regaining Eligibility 

Summer can only be viewed as potentially assisting the student in 
achieving the minimum annual credit requirements. Summer classwork is 
not counted in the normal scheme of Satisfactory Academic Progress, but 
an exception will be made in the case of a student that does not meet the 
minimum requirement and enrolls at their own expense to make up the 
deficient credits. Summer class work will assist a student in meeting the 
past academic year's SAP requirement only, no exceptions will be made 
to this stipulation. At the time the student fulfills the standards of satisfac- 



tory progress, the student must notify the coordinator of SAP in writing 
indicating that the requirements have been met. 

Appeals 

Students who do not comply with SAP, may submit a written appeal to the 
Office of Student Financial Aid if extenuating circumstances have aflected 
their progress The written appeal should include appropriate third-party 
documentation. If the appeal is denied, the student's eligibility will be 
suspended until compliance to the policy is met. 

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 you describe, your eligibility may 
be reinstated. If you are not eligible for aid because you did not pass the 
minimum number of required credits, your eligibility may be reinstated 
after you successfully complete 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 
A, B. C, D. Pass, or Satisfactory will count. The following grades do not 
count: "F" (Fail), "I" (Incomplete). "W" (Withdrawal). Unsatisfactory, Audit, 
and Repeats. 

The annual credit requirement and grade point average required by the 
university apply to you whether or not you receive financial aid. 

For more information on specific standards of satisfactory academic 
progress, 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 and Special Programs 

2103 Reckord Armory, 405-6551 

The summer school consists of two six-week sessions and numerous 
additional courses of various length from three to eight weeks. Newly 
admitted students may begin their studies during the summer rather than 
the following fall term. By taking advantage of this opportunity and 
continuing to attend summer sessions, completion of a baccalaureate 
degree might be shortened by a year or more. 

Attendance during the summer sessions eases the transition from high 
school to college. Classes are generally smaller, meet every day, and 
faculty contact is more frequent. Courses offered during the summer are 
the same in content and instruction as those offered during the academic 
year. 

The summer cultural and recreational programs are 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 present world-class artists on the campus. 

Facilities for most sports and an intramural program in several team and 
individual sports are available. For additional information, write for a 
Summer Programs catalog: Administrative Dean for Summer Programs,

credit through a work experience in several ways. Students should 
plan ahead to make the most of these opportunities. ELP will help 
students match their interests with internship options and the

learning plans with a sponsoring faculty member. To be eligible, 
students must have earned at least 56 credits including at least 12 
at UMCP and at least 3 in the department sponsoring the intern- 
ship. Both the ELP and the sponsoring department must approve 
the learning proposal prior to registration. The completed learning

386 only once in any department for either three or six credits. No 



more than one 386 sequence may be taken in each semester. A 
maximum of twelve (12) 386 credits may be applied toward a 
baccalaureate degree. Many departments also offer their own 
internship programs. 

Volunteer Service. The ELP Office maintains a listing of over 400 
agencies and organizations that have expressed an interest in 
having volunteers from UMCP. Volunteer service opportunities 
can range from research and advocacy to direct service to agen- 
cies 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.

in most majors. To be eligible, a student must have completed 
thirty-six semester hours, twelve of which must have been earned 
at UMCP the semester before co-oping, and have a minimum 2.0 
cumulative GPA. 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 commit- 
ment 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 should apply the semester before they wish 
to begin working. See the College of Engineering entry in this 
catalog for details about the Engineering Co-op Program. 

National Student Exchange (NSE). NSE provides students with 
the opportunity to experience educational travel, curricular devel- 
opment, cultural enrichment, and personal growth. Students may 
exchange for one semester or an academic year to campuses 
located throughout the continental U.S. and in Hawaii, the Virgin 
Islands, Alaska, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Students exchange for a 
variety of reasons, selecting schools that provide a particular 
academic focus, unique cultural environment, or different geo- 
graphic location. Through NSE, students may experience a new 
living and learning environment. Students must earn their final 
thirty hours of course credits 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. 
March is the deadline for the next academic year. Students must 
have a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the time of application and ex- 
change.

(To report instances of academic dishonesty, 314-8450) 

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. 

Student judicial board members are invited to assume positions of 
responsibility in the university discipline system in order that they might

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 (UMCP). 

Throughout the year OMSE implements several key programs that have 
as their objective enhancing the recruitment, retention, and graduation of 
minority students at UMCP. Included among the programs are the Tutorial 
Program, Job Fair, a mentoring program, a course, EDCP 1 08N: College 
and Career Advancement: Concepts and Skills for Minority Students, and 
Celebrating Academic and Leadership Excellence to recognize outstand- 
ing 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 Annual Career and Job Fair is designed to contribute to the career 
development of minority undergraduates at all levels. It brings represen- 
tatives from local and national companies to see 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-profes- 
sional 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 



26 Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 



Native American Student Union, the Black Student Union, and the 
Panhellenic Council. 

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

Orientation 

1 195 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 and registration 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 08-0. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the 
world of higher education generally, and the University of Maryland 
specifically. The course is taught by faculty and administrators, and is 
limited to 25 students per section. 

Parking 

Parking Garage 2 (on 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 (UMCP) campus. All students who plan to park a licensed 
motor vehicle in one of these spaces must register for a parking permit at 
the DCP office. Campus resident students who have earned 55 or fewer 
UMCP-accepted credits may not register for a parking permit 

Because UMCP is experiencing a shortage of parking spaces, parking 
regulations are strictly enforced. 

Illegally parked vehicles, as well as those vehicles not displaying a UMCP 
parking permit, will be ticketed, and students with outstanding parking 
fines may be barred from registration. 

Complete parking regulations, a disabled parking directory, schedule of 
fines, and other information may be obtained from DCP.

Thousands of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff 
members recognize the value of spending their free time in some sort of 
healthful physical activity. They find a lifestyle which balances academic 
pursuits with recreational and social involvement ideal for a fulfilling and 
enjoyable college experience. The Campus Recreation Services (CRS) 
staff meets almost everyone's leisure-time needs through informal rec- 
reational opportunities, intramural sports activities, fitness and wellness 
programs, sport clubs, and special events. 

Informal recreational opportunities include lifting weights, running, swim- 
ming laps, and joining a colleague for a friendly game of racquetball, 
squash, or tennis. Intramural sports provide organized tournament and 
league play for individuals, pairs, and teams. 

Fitness and wellness programs exist in the form of aerobics and water 
aerobics sessions and the Terrapin Fitness Challenge, a self-directed 
fitness program .while more than twenty-five sport clubs (from bowling and 
martial arts to rugby and sailing) are organized and supported through 
CRS. These groups comprise students, faculty, and staff interested in 
participating (and sometimes competing against other colleges) in one 
particular sport. 

Fees paid at the time of class registration cover virtually all the costs of 
participating in CRS activities.

Resident Life 

2100 Annapolis Hall. 314-2100 

The Department ol Resident Life is responsible for management ot the 
residence halls as well as for cultural, educational, recreational, and social 
programming activities in the residence 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 residence 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. Apartments 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 
undergraduate career.

Upward Bound Program 

1 107 West Education Annex, 405-6776 

The University of Maryland Upward Bound Program (UBP) provides 
academic and counseling assistance to capable but underachieving high 
school students with the purpose of preparing them to pursue post- 
secondary education. The UBP supplements its participants' secondary 
school experiences by providing each student with opportunities to 
improve or develop the skills he or she needs in order to acquire a positive 
self-image, broaden educational and cultural perspectives, and realize 
undiscovered potentials. 

Throughout the school year and during the summer residential program, 
participants may take advantage of the UPB's academic instruction, 
tutoring, counseling, and innovative educational experiences designed to 
help them develop the basic academic skills and motivation they need to 
achieve success in secondary school. 

High school students in Prince George's and Montgomery counties 
receive recommendations to the UBP from their high school principals, 
teachers, and counselors or from the Educational Talent Search Program, 
social service agencies, or individuals familiar with the UPB.

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 late 
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 undergradu- 
ates 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 fuN-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 discrepanciesto the Off iceot Records and Registrations 



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 (our 
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 or. tho 
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 registration card. 

b. The effective date of withdrawal as far as refunds are con- 
cerned is the date that the withdrawal form is received by the 
Records Office. Notation of withdrawal, and the effective date 
of the withdrawal, will be posted to the permanent record 
Instructors and 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 information. 

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 oiders to the Records Office and 
process "withdrawal" papers or "change in registration" pa- 
pers. Complete procedures are available from the office of 
Records and Registration 

10. When Dean's approval is required, the Dean tor Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally delegated to 
the dean in the case of 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 contempo- 
rary thought and experience. The Board of Regents and the Untvi 
Maryland at College Park Campus Senate have recently approve 
general education program. This program . Core Libera' Arts and S.- 
Studies (CORE), must be completed by all students entering in May 1 990 
and thereafter with eight (8) or fewer credits from this or ai 
education instriution. Students who enter and have compi» 
more credits before May 1990 from this or any oi 
institution will complete their general education rt 
University Studies Program (USP) They may. hov. 
CORE program it they so desire. Students who entered t: • 
Maryland at College Park prior to May 1 980 are referred t< 
General Education ("Statue of Limitations"! for additional inform, 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 29 



For a detailed outline of the program requirements lor both the CORE and 
the USP programs, students should refer to the chapter on General 
Education Students are referred to the CORE Guide for updated lists of 
courses approved to meet general education requirements. 

Enrollment in Majors 

A student who is eligible to remain al 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 undergradu- 
ate degree may, with the approval of his or her dean, the chair of the 
department concerned, and the Graduate School, register for graduate 
courses, which may later be counted for graduate credit toward an 
advanced degree at this university. The total of undergraduate and 
graduate credits in the senior year cannot be used for graduate credit 
unless proper pre-arrangement is made. Seniors who wish to take 
advantage of this opportunity must formally apply for admission to the 
graduate school. 

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 of combined Bachelor's and Master's degree 
programs. For complete guidelines, requirements, and application proce- 
dures, 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. 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 resident credit at their own institutions. The intention is to 
allow students to take an occasional course to augment a program rather 
than to develop an individual program. Payment of tuition for courses will 
be made at the student's home campus. 

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

VETERANS BENEFITS 

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

IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

There are two cards, used jointly, to identify currently enrolled students: 
the photo ID and the semester registration card. The photo ID card is 
issued at the time the student first registers for classes. This card is to be 
used for the entire duration of enrollment. The semester registration card 
validates the photo identification card and is issued for each semester in 
which the student is registered. Both cards should be carried 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 S7.00 for lost, stolen, or broken photo identification cards. Questions 
concerning the identification card system should be addressed to the 
Office of Records and Registrations. 

Change of Address 

Students are expected to notify the Office of Records and Registrations 



30 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



of any change in their local or permanent address. Change ot Address 
forms are available at the Registration Counter, first floor, Mitchell Building 
and at the Office of the Bursar, first floor, Lee Building. 

ATTENDANCE AND ASSESSMENT/EXAMINATIONS 



Attendance 



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 require- 
ments of each course for which he or she is registered. Students 
are expected to attend classes regularly, for consistent atten- 
dance 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 
successor failure. Furthermore, absences (whether excused or 
unexcused) do not alter what is expected of the student qualita- 
tively 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. 
It is the policy of the university to excuse the absences of students 
that result from the following causes: illness (where the student 
is too ill to attend class), religious observance (where the nature 
of the observance prevents the student from being present during 
the class period), participation in university activities at the 
request of university authorities, and compelling circumstances 
beyond the student's control. Students claiming excused ab- 
sence must furnish documentary support for their assertion that 
absence resulted from one of these causes. 
In certain courses, in-class participation is an ongoing require- 
ment and an integral part of the work of the course.for example, 
courses in public speaking, courses requiring group discussion, 
courses emphasizing physical activity and conversation in for- 
eign languages, and courses with laboratories. In other courses, 
occasional in-class assessments may occur, sometimes without 
advance notice. It is the responsibility of the instructor to inform 
each class at the beginning of the semester of the nature of in- 
class participation expected and what effect absences will have 
on the evaluation of the student's work in the course. 
Absences in courses where in-class participation is a significant 
part of the work of the course shall be handled by the instructor 
in the course in accordance with the general policy of his or her 
department and college. 



Assessment 



The university provides for the rescheduling of significant as- 
sessments by students without penalty, when such assessments 
are missed by students with an excused absence, except in 
cases where the nature of the assessment precludes the possi- 
bility of rescheduling. In no case may an examination be sched- 
uled on Rosh Hoshanah, Yom Kippur, Good Friday or the first two 
days of Passover. (Students who have a concern with other 
religious observances should see their instructor at the start of 
the semester.) An instructor is not under obligation to give a 
student a make-up assessment unless the failure to perform was 
due to an excused absence, that is. due to illness(where the 
student is too ill to attend class), religious observance (where the 
nature of the observance prevents the student from being present 
during the class period), participation in university activities at the 
request of university authorities, or compelling 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 a make-up 
assignment. In those instances where the instructor is the chair, 
the appeal may be made to the dean; the chair's or dean's 
decision is final. When permitted, a make-up assessment must 
be given on campus unless the published schedule or course 
description requires other arrangements. The make-up assess- 
ment must be at a time and place mutually agreeable to the 
instructor and student, cover only the material for which the 
student was originally responsible, be at a comparable level of 
difficulty with the original assessment, and be given within a time 
limit that retains the currency of the material. The make-up 
assessment must not interfere with the student's regularty sched- 
uled classes In the event that a group of students requires the 
same make-up assessment, one make-up assessment time may 
be scheduled at the convenience of the instructor and the largest 
possible number of students involved 



2. The student must notify his or her instructor of the reason for 
absence as soon as possible. Where the reason for absence from 
a scheduled assessment is known well in advance (for example, 
in cases of religious observance or participation in university 
activities at the request of university authorities), the student 
must inform the instructor by the end of the schedule adjustment 
period. Prior notification is especially important in connection with 
final examinations, since failure to reschedule a final examination 
before conclusion of the final examination period may result in 
loss of credits during the semester. Where the reason is not 
known well in advance (for example, in cases of illness or 
compelling circumstances beyond the student's control), the 
student must inform the instructor as soon as the reason devel- 
ops, if that is feasible, or, otherwise, as soon as possible after its 
development. 

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

4. A final 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. All final examinations must be held 
on the examination days of the Official Final Examination Sched- 
ule. No final examination shall be given at a time other than that 
scheduled in the Official Final Examination Schedule without 
written permission of the department chair. 

5. Graduating seniors will be expected to take final examinations 
during the regular final examination period. However, graduating 
seniors are not required to take final examinations on the day of 
graduation or on any regularly scheduled day following gradua- 
tion. In courses with examinations scheduled on those days. 
graduating seniors must notify their instructors by the end of the 
schedule adjustment period. 

6. The chair of each department is responsible for the adequate 
administration of examinations in courses under his or her 
jurisdiction. 

7. Every examination shall be designed to require for its completion 
not more than the regularly scheduled period. In the case of final 
examinations, the time allotted should not exceed the scheduled 
final examination period. 

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

9. The following rules shall govern all university examinations, 
unless the instructor for a specific course stipulates alternate 
rules for that course. A breach of any of the rules shall constitute 
"disruption of class," a disciplinary offense (Code of Student 
Conduct, section 9[j]). and may serve as the basis of an allegation 
of academic dishonesty. 

a. Students arriving late for an examination may not unreason- 
ably disrupt the examination room. 

b. Students must leave all unauthorized materials (e.g.. books, 
notes, calculators) with the proctor before being seated. 

c. Where seating arrangements are established by proctors. 
students must conform to these arrangements. 

d. Students may not return to an examination room after leaving, 
unless permission to do so has been granted by the proctor 
prior to the student's departure. 

e. Students must cease conversation prior to the passing out of 
examination papers and maintain silence during the entire 
examination period. 

f. Students must place examination papers face down on th» 
writing desk until the examination is officially begun by the 
proctor. 

g. Students must keep examination papers flat on the wnting 
desk at all times 

h. Students at an examination must be prepared to show current 
university identification. 

10. Each faculty member is to retain, for one full semester after a 
course is ended, the students final examinations If a faculty 
member goes on leave for a semester or longer, or le.> 
university, the final examinations and grade records for the 
course must be left with the department chair. 

STATEMENT ON CLASSROOM CLIMATE 

The University of Maryland at College Park values the diversity of its 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 31 



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

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

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



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 Pass-Fall policy was approved by the Board of Regents for 
implementation 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-registering 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 grade. The 
grades A, B, C, or D will automatically be converted by the Office 
of Records and Registrations to the grade P on the student's 
permanent record. The grade F will remain as given. The choice 
of grading option may be changed only during the schedule 
adjustment period for courses in which the student is currently 
registered. 

Incompletes. The mark of T is an exceptional mark that is an instructor 
option. It is given only to a student whose work in a course has been 
qualitatively satisfactory, when, because of illness or other circumstances 
beyond the student's control, he or she has been unable to complete some 
small portion of the work of the course. In no case will the mark "I" be 
recorded for a student who has not completed the major portion of the work 
of the course. 

1 . The student will remove the "I" by completing work assigned by 
the instructor. It is the student's responsibility to request arrange- 
ments for completion of the work and to request that an Incom- 
plete Contract be written. These arrangements must be docu- 
mented in the Incomplete Contract, and signed by both the 
student and the instructor. 

2. The Incomplete Contract must be submitted to the dean of the 
college offering the course, and a copy forwarded to the Records 
Office, within six weeks after the grade submittal deadline or the 
"I" will convert to a grade of "F." A copy of the signed agreement 
should also be filed 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 work for the 
course as defined in the contract is not completed on schedule, 
the "I" will be converted to the grade indicated on the contract. 

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

5. It is the responsibility of the instructor or the department chair 
concerned to return the appropriate supplementary grade report, 
both to the appropriate dean and to the Office of Records and 
Registrations, upon completion of the conditions of the Incom- 
plete Contract. 

6. The T cannot be removed through re-registration for the course 



32 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



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. 

Campus Repeat Policy 

The following students are required to follow the new repeat policy: 

• All new freshmen who begin at UMCP Fall 1990 and after. 

• Transfer students from schools other than Maryland Community 
Colleges who begin at UMCP Fall 1990 and after. This includes 
transfer students from another University of Maryland institution. 
(NOTE: There is one exception to this for students attending 
UMBC College of Engineering). 

1. There is a limit to the number of times a student may repeat a 
course. Students may only once repeat a course in which they 
earned an A, B, C. D, F, P, S, W, I, NGR or Audit; they cannot be 
registered (after the schedule adjustment period) for any given 
course more than twice. However, a dean's office may grant an 
exception allowing an additional course repeat. In this case, 
students must present a plan for successfully completing the 
course These exceptions wjj] be counted against the limit for 
repeatable credits. 

2. There is also a limit on the number of courses that a student may 
repeat. The number of repeatable credits depends on each 
student's class standing when admitted to UMCP. The total 
credits at entry will be based on acceptable transfer credit. 
advanced placement, CLEP credits, etc. The following table 
outlines the limits:

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

Under very unusual circumstances, a student may obtain an 
exception to these limitations by appealing to the Vice President 
for Academic Affairs/Provost. 

3. The grade point average will include all course attempts that 
result in a grade of A, B, C, D, or F. However, to help freshmen 
and transfer students adjust to the UMCP campus, the following 
two exceptions allow for the cumulative GPA to be calculated so 
that only the higher grade is included: 

• When the original registration of the repeated course is taken 
within the student's first semester at UMCP, or 

• When the original registration of the repeated course is 
attempted within the student's first 24 credit hours attempted 
(including transfer credits) or within the semester during 
which the student reaches the 24th credit hour attempted. 

4. Any grade 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. 

5. Repeat by transfer — If a student repeats by transfer a course that 
was taken before or during the semester in which the student 
reaches 24 credits attempted (including transfer credits) and the 
transfer grade is higher, then the original grade in the course will 
be excluded from the GPA calculation. 

• If the course was taken after the semester in which the student 
reached 24 credits attempted then the transfer course will not 
replace the original grade in the GPA calculation. Special 
exceptions can be requested by the dean in unusual 
circumstances. 

Repeat Policy Prior to Fall 1990: 

1 The following students follow the oid repeat policy: 

• Students who began at UMCP before the Fall 1 990 semester 
(including students who enter UMCP for summer 1990). 

• Transfer students who began at a Maryland Community 
College before Fall 1 990. 



• UMBC College of Engineering students who began before 
1990. 

The highest grade received in the repeated course is used to calculate the 
GPA. A student may repeat any course; however no student may bo 
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 
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 deiv 
receiving college, with the approval of the student, shall indicai 
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 
college, the dean of the third college shall make a similar initial adju 
courses marked "nonapplicable" by the second dean may become appli- 
cable in the third program. 

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

Academic Clemency Policy 

Undergraduate students returning to the University ot 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 demon- 
strating achievement in a subject field through examination. College Park 
recognizes three proficiency examination programs for credit: Advanced 
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 
required for their degree through examination. Usually, this is no more 
than 60 credits. Students are responsible for consulting with the appropri- 
ate 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, custorr.i 
ferred to as "credit by examination." are comparable to comprei 
final examinations in a course. Although the mathematics ana 
language departments receive the most applications for credit b\ ■ 
nation, 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. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 33 



If an examination lor a course is available, the department will provide 
information regarding time and place, type of examination, and material 
which might be helpful in preparing tor 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. 

After making arrangements with the department, apply through the 
Undergraduate Advising Office, 1117 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 examina- 
tion" "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 #5814). 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 to CLEP, 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) 

(b) 



provided the examination was being accepted for credit 
here on the date the student took the examination, and 
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 
m 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 

(For Current UMCP Students) 

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 
toward a degree without approval in advance by the dean of the 
college from which the student expects a degree. The same rule 
applies to registration in the summer program of another institu- 
tion. "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 Institutions 
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 Univer- 
sity of Maryland Board of Regents institution (UMBO UMAB. 
UMES, UMUC) prior to fall 1 989 will be included in the cumulative 
GPA. Courses taken at any other institution may not be credited 
toward a degree without advance approval. See #1 above for 
information. 

3. UMS Concurrent Inter-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.

Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 35 



REQUIREMENTS FOR RETENTION 

mtc retention is based solely on grade point average (GPA). The 

i the cumulative grade point average (cumulative GPA) 

.^cording to the number ot credits attempted. A minimum ot 120 

>! successfully completed (not I, F, or W) course credits is required 

tor graduation in any degree curriculum. 

Satisfactory Performance applies to those students with a cumulative 
GPA between 4 000 and 2.000. 

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. 

Unsatisfactory Performance: Students with a cumulative GPA of less 
than 2.000 fall into three categories: Unsatisfactory Performance, Aca- 
demic Warning and Academic Dismissal. The notations Academic Warn- 
ing 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:

1 . Credit level: Courses with grades of A, B. C, F, P, S and transfer 
credit from other institutions, Advanced Placement, CLEP and 
other similar tests in which credit is given. 

2. Computation of GPA: GPA is computed by dividing the total 
number of quality points accumulated in courses for which a 
grade of A, B, C. D, or F has been assigned by the total number 
of credits attempted in those courses. Courses for which a mark 
of P, S. I or NGR has been assigned are not included in 
computing the GPA. Each letter grade has a numerical value: 
A = 4: B = 3; C = 2; D = 1 ; F = 0. Multiplying this value by the 
number of credits for a particular course gives the number of 
quality points earned for that course. 

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 
academically dismissed will have this action entered on their 
transcript. 

6. No student transferring to the University of Maryland at College 
Park from outside the University of Maryland will be subject to 
Academic Dismissal at the end of the first semester as long as the 
student obtains a cumulative GPA of 0.23 or more. (A student 
who would otherwise be subject to Academic Dismissal will 
receive an Academic Warning.) Thereafter, such a student will 
be subject to the normal standards of academic progress. This 
provision does not apply to students reinstated or readmitted to 
College Park. 

7. A student who has been academically dismissed and who is 
reinstated will be academically dismissed again if minimum 
academic standards are not met by the end of the first semester 
after reinstatement. (See Readmission and Reinstatement in 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 require- 
ments 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. 
1 0. 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 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 AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 

The University of Maryland at College Park awards the following degrees: 
Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of General Studies (no admission to program 
as of fall 1 988), Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science, Master of Applied 
Anthropology, Master of Architecture, Master of Arts, Master of Business 
Administration, Master of Education, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Library 
Science, Master of Music, Master of Public Management, Master of Public 
Policy. Master of Science, Doctor of Education, Doctor of Musical Arts, 
and Doctor of Philosophy. Students in specified two-year curricula may be 
awarded certificates. 

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 



36 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



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 undergiaduate curricula re- 
quire more than 1 20 credits, no baccalaureate curriculum requires 
fewer than 120. No baccalaureate degree will be awarded in 
instances in which fewer than 1 20 credit hours have been earned. 

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

4) Grade Point Average. A minimum cumulative 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 gradu- 
ation, 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 
wntten permission in advance from the appropriate deans. As early 
as possible, but in no case later than one full semester before the 
expected date of graduation, the student must file with the depart- 
ments or programs involved and with the appropriate deans, formal 
programs showing the courses to be offered to meet requirements 
in each of the majors and supporting areas as well as the college 
and general education program requirements. Approval will not be 
granted if there 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 
pass/fail or satisfactory/fail shall count toward the 60-hour minimum No 
student with an average less than 3.30 will be considered fora commence- 
ment honor. Because grades for a term generally are officially recorded 
after the term's graduation day, compulation 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 m studies of 
the liberal arts and sciences. Student members are chosen entirely on the 
basis of academic excellence; neither extra-curricular leadership nor 
service to the community is considered. Election is held only once a year, 
in the spring semester. 

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

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

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

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

3 Required courses. One semester of mathematics, which must be 
fulfilled by college level credit hours. Two semesters of a foreign 
language, al the elementary level or above. Students in the College 
of Arts and Humanities may use fulfillment of that College's foreign 
language requirement to satisfy the Phi Beta Kappa requirement. 
The language requirement may also be satisfied by a proficiency 
examination or department certification; foreign students whose 
native language is not English are exempted from the Phi Beta 
Kappa language requirement. Students in the latter two categories 
who wish to be considered for admission to Phi Beta Kappa should 
notify the Phi Beta Kappa office in writing prior to March of the year 
of admission 

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 (includ- 
ing a laboratory science course). Students with more challenging 
courses and moderately high grade point averages are preferred 
by the committee to those with higher grade point averages but a 
narrow range of courses. Minimal qualifications in more than one 
area may preclude election to Phi Beta Kappa. 

Recommended criteria include: 

1 Regular grades (rather than pass/fail) m (a) mathematics and 
foreign language courses, and (b) distribution areas m 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

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 orattempting 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 exercise. 

(c) FACILITATING ACADEMIC DISHONESTY— intentionally or 
knowingly helping or attempting to help another to violate any 
provision of this code. 

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

Responsibility to Report Academic Dishonesty 

2. Academic dishonesty is a corrosive force in the academic life of a 
university. It jeopardizes the quality of education and depreciates 
the genuine achievements of others. It is, without reservation, a 
responsibility of all members of the campus community to actively 
deter 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 aca- 
demic dishonesty are regrettable aspects of modem education. 
These reputations become self-fulfilling and grow, unless vigor- 
ously challenged by students and faculty alike. 

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



Honor Pledge 



3. All applicants for admission to undergraduate or graduate pro- 
grams at the University of Maryland College Park, as well as all 
students registenng for courses, will be expected to sign an Honor 
Pledge as a condition of admission and at each registration. The 



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 o'f 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 dishon- 
esty 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 1 3, 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 1 1 , 
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; 

to inform the complaining party of the actions being taken; 
to present the evidence and analysis upon which the Charge 
is based to the Honor Board during the Honor Review; 
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 indict- 
ment or otherform 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 



(b) 

(CI 



(d) 



38 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



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 
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 It 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 Off icer will provide the appropriate Dean with 
a written report of the Honor Board's findings and 
recommendations. 
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 
Oflicer 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 Re- 
view. In particular, the student must fully cooperate with 
the Honor Board and respond to its Inquiries without 
undue intrusion or comment by an adviser. 

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

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

(c) Presence at an Honor Review lies within the judgment of the 
Presiding Officer. An Honor Review is a confidential inves- 
tigation. It requires a deliberative and candid atmosphere, 
free from distraction. Accordingly, it is not open to the pubiic 
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 investi- 
gation, 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 desinng the presence of 
a witness before an Honor Board to ensure that the witness 
appears. If necessary, a subpoena may be requested, in 
accordance with Part 32 (b) of the Code of Student Conduct. 
Because 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 i 
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 tnal may be 
counterproductive in an academic investigatory proceed- 
ing, and shall not be applied. The Presiding Officer will 
accept tor consideration all matters which reasonable per- 
sons would accept as having probative value in the conduct 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 39 



ol their atlairs. Unduly repetitious irrelevant, or personally 
abusive material should be excluded. 

20. If the Honor Board tinds that an attempt or act of academic 
dishonesty did occur, it shall recommend an appropriate 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, falsifica- 
tion of papers, collaboration with others, or some actual or 
potential harm to other students will merit a severe sanction, i.e. 
suspension or expulsion, even for a first offense An attempt to 
commit an act shall be punished to the same extent as the 
consummated act. 

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

The Grade of "XF" 

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

25. No student with an "XF" on the student's transcript shall be 
permitted to represent the university in any extracurricular 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 "P 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 (he 
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 determi- 
nations 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 tran- 
script, 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 Humani- 
ties; Behavioral and Social Sciences; Business and Man- 
agement; Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences; 
Education; Engineering; Human Ecology; Journalism; Life 
Sciences; Health and Human Performance; the Dean of the 
School of Architecture; and the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies will each appoint one undergraduate student. 

(b) The Dean of the Graduate School will appoint seven 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 aca- 
demic integrity standards, policies, and procedures, includ- 
ing recommendations 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

GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS 



GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM 
AND REQUIREMENTS 

Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Dr. Kathryn Mohrman 
2130 Mitchell Building, 405-9354 

The Purpose of General Education 

To earn a baccalaureate degree at the University of Maryland at College 
Park, students complete both a major course of study and a campus-wide 
general education program. The Core Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies 
Program (CORE) has been the required general education program at 
UMCP since Fall, 1990. CORE courses introduce 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 UMCP graduates to claim to be "educated people." 

A broadly based education is essential equipment for life in our world of 
rapid economic, social, and technological change. Participation in a 
democratic society requires more than the central training provided by one 
major field of study. General education elevates a university above 
serving merely as a job-training institution. A strong general education 
ensures 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. , 

The CORE Program strategically builds a sound skill and knowledge base 
over the student's four years of baccalaureate study and represents a third 
of the total academic work completed for graduation. At UMCP, the 
general education program has four major components: 

FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES help to build competence and confi- 
dence in basic writing and computational skills. Mastery of Fundamental 
Studies tools greatly enhances success both during and after college. 
Students begin fulfilling Fundamental Studies requirements in their first 
year at UMCP. 

DISTRIBUTIVE STUDIES open windows on the world of ideas by 
introducing students to broad areas of learning in many disciplines. 
Through these courses, students explore different kinds of knowledge and 
the very nature of scholarship in the humanities, arts, natural sciences, 
mathematics, social sciences, and history. Students generally pursue 
Distributive Studies in the first two years of their coursework. 

ADVANCED STUDIES strengthen the exploration begun with Dis- 
tributive Studies at a deeper level and allow students to reflect upon how 
contemporary social and ethical problems are approached by people in 
disciplines outside the student's major. Students take Advanced Studies 
courses in their junior and senior years. 

HUMAN CULTURAL DIVERSITY ensures that all members of 
our diverse undergraduate community have a chance to learn about 
attitudes and cultures different from their own. 



STATEMENT ON APPLICABILITY OF CORE PROGRAM 

At the College Park campus, the Campus Senate and the Board of 
Regents approved a new general education program that went into effect 
Fall 1990. This program, called Core Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies 
(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 may complete their general 
education requirements under the University Studies Program (USP) or 
may choose to complete CORE Program requirements instead if they so 
desire. (See statement below also.) Advanced Placement (AP) and other 
examination-based credits will not be considered in these determinations. 
(See program outlines below.) 

STATEMENT ON STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR PREVIOUS 
GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS AT UMCP (GEP, GUR, USP) 

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

Thereafter, following any substantive change in general education re- 
quirements (like the change in Fall 1 990 from USP to CORE), undergradu- 
ate students returning or transferring to College Park after a separation of 
five continuous years must follow the requirements in effect at the time of 
re-entry. Exceptions may be granted to those students who at the time of 
separation had completed 60% of the general education requirements 
then in effect. 

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



GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM OUTLINES 

CORE LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES STUDIES 
PROGRAM (CORE) 

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. Advanced Placement (AP) and other examination based credits 
will not be considered in this determination. A course taken to satisfy 
college, major, and/or supporting area requirements may also be used to 
satisfy CORE Fundamental and Distributive Studies requirements if that 
course appears on the list of approved CORE courses. Courses taken to 
satisfy CORE requirements may nor be taken on a Pass-Fail basis. 

CORE FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES 

Nine (9) credits, three (3) courses required. Except for the Professional Writing 
requirement, the Fundamental Studies requirements must be attempted by 
the time the student has completed thirty credit hours and passed successfully 
by the time the student has completed sixty credit hours. (See Fundamental 
Studies course list at end of CORE Program outline.) 



42 General Education Programs 





"A liberal education is at the heart of a civil society." 

—Bart GiamaW, former president of Yale University 
and Commissioner of Baseball 



"A university is a unique organization in human 
society: we are the most prolific source of new 
knowledge, and we are the repository of the best that 
has been thought and created over the centuries." 

—Kathryn Mohrman, 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies 



"Plan now to take an active role in all your classes- 
get to know your professors, ask questions in class, 
be an involved participant in learning." 

—From the Dean's letter to UMCP students 



CORE = The CORE Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies Program. 

It is the general education program at College Park. It will make up about one third of your undergraduate courses. It may 
well influence the shape of your whole life by introducing you to new and expansive ways of viewing yourself and the world 
around you. 

CORE was established to ensure that you will leave the university not only with the focus of a major, but also with the 
beginnings of a broad, informed preparation for life in a complex world. CORE aims to helpyou expand your skillsand honzons 
while you are at College Park and to prepare you for a lifetime of active learning. 

As you plan your courses at College Park, keep in mind that in our fast-paced world, things change at a remarkable rate. The 
most important accomplishments you can bring into the job market are the same accomplishments you will want to bnng into 
your own adult life: a lively mind with a lot of skills, a passionate commitment to truth and justice, an appreciation of many 
views of the world, and a clear sense of what is truly important. 

Each part of CORE— Fundamental Studies, Distributive Studies, Advanced Studies, and Human Cultural Diversity— serves 
a particular purpose in guiding you towards the goal of becoming an educated citizen of the 21 st century. This goal isdescribed 
fully in the College Park Promise, printed on the inside cover of this catalog. 

CORE courses aim to involve you actively in learning, to help you see new ways of thinking about and acting in the world. 

If you are still thinking about what you want to major in, your choices of CORE courses are all the more important. 

Remember: C hallenge your assumptions about the world 
Open doors to new understanding 
Risk catching fire about learning 
Empower yourself for the future 

Each part of CORE provides you with an opportunity: seize it! 



WHY CORE 

Employers hire whole people, 
not just narrowly trained minds. 

People spend twice as many hours living 
as working. 

Universities exist to foster the study 

of areas you probably have not heard of yet. 

Only a few college graduates are still using 
the preparation of their major 1 5 years 
after graduation: they and the world 
have changed. 

Democracies depend on the informed choices of 
knowledgeable citizens. 

You live every moment with yourself, so you'd 
better be interesting company. 



WHAT IS CORE 

Fundamental Studies (3 courses) 

Composition, Math, Professional writing 

Distributive Studies (9 courses) 
3 Humanities and the Arts 
3 Social Sciences and History 
3 Natural Sciences and Mathematics 

Advanced Studies (2 courses after 56 credits) 
1 Analysis of Social and Ethical Problems 
1 other course (see detailed listings) 

Human Cultural Diversity (1 course) 
(see detailed listings) 

(Some students may be able to exempt parts of 

Fundamental Studies: CORE courses may also 

count towards other requirements.)

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, emphasizing the precise knowledge gradu- 
ates 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 

Agriculturai Engineering 

Agricultural Sciences, General 

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 Agriculture 
Headquarters in Washington, D.C. 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, modern 
greenhouses are available for teaching and research on a wide variety of 
plants, plant pests, and crop cultural systems. Dairy and beef cattle and 
flocks of poultry are 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. 

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: 

1. CORE (40 credits) 

2. College Requirements 

a. Chemistry: Any one course of three or more credits in chemistry 
numbered 102 or higher. 

b. Mathematics or any course that satisfies the CORE Program 

c. Biological Sciences: Any one course carrying three or more credits 
selected from offerings of the Departments of Botany, Entomology, 
Microbiology, or Zoology. 

Courses marked lor non-science majors" cannot be used to satisfy 
degree requirements for any major in the College of Agriculture. 

3. Requirements of the major and supporting areas, which are listed 
under individual program headings in Chapter 7. 



Required Courses 



Courses required for students in the College of Agriculture are listed in 
each curriculum. The program for the freshman year is similar for all 
curricula. Variations in programs will be suggested based on students' 
interests and test scores.

Advisors normally work with a limited number of students and are able to 
give individual guidance. Students entering the freshman year with a 
definite choice of curriculum are assigned to departmental advisors for 
counsel and planning of all academic programs. Students who have not 
selected a definite curriculum are assigned to a general advisor who 
assists with the choice of electives and acquaints students with opportunities 
in the curricula in the College of Agriculture and in other units of the 
university.

Institute of Applied Agriculture— Two-Year Program 

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

The Institute offers three major programs with the following specialty 
areas: 

I Business Farming 

A. Farm Production and Management 

B. Agricultural Business Management 

II. Ornamental Horticulture 

A General Ornamental Horticulture 

B. Landscape Management 

C. Urban Forest Management 

III. Turtgrass Management and Golf Course Management 

The Business Farming program develops skills needed for farm opera- 
tion or for employment in agricultural service and supply businesses such 
as feed. seed, fertilizer, machinery companies, and farmers' coopera- 
tives. 

Options in Ornamental Horticulture prepare students for employment 
in. or management of. greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers, landscape 
maintenance companies and tree care professions. 

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

To enhance a student's occupational knowledge, the Institute requires 
completion of a Supervised Work Experience program, usually done in the 
summer between the first and second years. 

A graduate of the Institute is awarded a Certificate in Agriculture specifying 
the student's major area of study. Graduation requires the successful 
completion of sixty credit hours of a recognized program option, completion 
of Supervised Work Experience, and a 2.00 cumulative grade point 
average. 

Though designed as a two-year terminal program, the Institute does not 
restrict continuing education. In general, all Institute courses are transferable 
to the University of Maryland at College Park and the University of 
Maryland Eastern Shore. The extent to which the courses can be applied 
to a baccalaureate degree will depend on the individual department in 
which a student is planning to major.

fDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The School of Architecture offers a four-year undergraduate program 
leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in architecture and a graduate 
program leading to the degree, Master of Architecture. The undergradu- 
ate major in architecture is designed to minimize the time required to 
complete the curriculum leading to the professional degree. Master of 
Architecture. 

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

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

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

Examples of the special opportunities available to students in this nchly 
variegated college are an exceptionally large slide library in the Art History 
Department, the Music Department's refurbished recital hall, the Pugliese 
Theatre for experimental drama. Improvisations Unlimited (a faculty- 
student dance group), the Computer Assisted Design and Development 
Laboratory, the campus literary magazine, Calvert Review, a biweekly 
foreign and art film series, a junior year abroad program in Nice, a year 
abroad program in Sheffield, and Honors programs in most departments. 
There are also special programs in women's studies, comparative litera- 
ture, and the history and philosophy of science. 

Preparation in the Arts and Humanities provides valuable background for 
careers in a broad range of fields. Students should be aware of the many 
eloquent testimonials from leaders of the nation's businesses, industry 
and government to the skills of oral presentation, written exposition, 
critical thinking, and analylic problem-solving nurtured in humanities 
courses. These skills are essential to a successful career in any number 
of different fields

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is compnsed 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 persua- 
sively. Students interested in human behavior and in solving human and 
social problems will find many exciting opportunities through the programs 
and courses offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. 

The college is composed of the following maior programs that lead to the 
Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree, as appropnate:

education in business and management to economic, social, and profes- 
sional development through profit and non-profit organizations at the 
local, regional, and national levels. The faculty of the college have been 
selected from the leading doctoral programs in business. They are 
scholars, teachers, and professional leaders with a commitment to 
superior education in business and management, specializing in account- 
ing, finance, decision and information sciences, management science 
and statistics, management and organization, marketing, and transporta- 
tion, business and public policy. The College of Business and Manage- 
ment is accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of

The university confers the following degrees on students successfully 
completing programs of study in the college: Bachelor of Science (B.S.), 
Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science (M.S.). 
and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Information concerning admission to 



the MB. A. or M.S. program is available from the college's Director of the

Undergraduate Program 

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

A student in business and management selects a major 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) 
Personnel and Labor Relations; (8) Production Management; (9) Statis- 
tics; and (10) Transportation. 

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. 

Transfer students entering the university can be advised during spring, 
summer, and fall transfer orientation programs. Contact the Orientation 
Office for further information, 314-8217. 

Admission to Business and Management 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for general LEP admissions 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review Most first-time enter- 
ing freshmen will gain admission to the College of Business and Manage- 
ment directly from high school, as allowed by space considerations within 
the College. Because space may be limited before all interested freshmen 
are admitted to the program, early application is encouraged. Freshmen 
admitted to the program will have access to the necessary advising 
through their initial semesters to help them determine if Business is an 
appropriate area for their interests and abilities 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Business will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must complete: (1) English 
Fundamental Studies; (2) 60% of lower level CORE requirements; (3) 
BMGT 220. BMGT 230 or 231, and ECON 201 or ECON 203 with a 
combined GPA of 2.5 in the 3 courses; and (4) a minimum cumulative GPA 
of 2.0. Students who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed 
to continue in the LEP and will be required to select another major. 

Transfer Admission. The following requirements affect new transfer 
students to the university as well as on-campus students hoping to change 
majors to the College. Admission of transfer students may be severely 
limited, and capacity is determined each year in accordance with the 
success of incoming freshmen. 

In order to be admitted to Business, transfer students will be required to 
meet the following set of gateway requirements: ( 1 ) completion of BMGT 
220, BMGT 230 or 231 , and ECON 201 or 203 with a minimum grade of 
C in each and a combined average of 2.5 for the three courses; and (2) 
attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work 
attempted. The required GPA is set each year and may vary from year to 
year depending upon available space. Contact the College of Business 
and Management or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for the 
current GPA standard. 

Appeals Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to Busi- 
ness at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have extenuating 
or special circumstances which should be considered, may appeal in 
writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions The student will be 
notified in writing of the appeal decision once it is made.

Programs at 301-314-8378. 

Statement of Policy on Transfer of Credit from 
Community Colleges 

It is the practice of the College of Business and Management to consider 
for transfer from a regionally accredited community 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 accred- 
ited 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 
transferability. 

Summary of Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements (all cur- 
ricula): At least 45 hours of the 120 semester hours of academic work 
required for graduation must be in business and management subjects. 
A minimum of fifty-seven hours of the required 1 20 hours must be in 300 
or 400 level courses. In addition to the requirement of an overall 
cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C average) in all College Park 
coursework, effective Fall 1989, all business majors must earn a "C" or 
better in all required courses, including Economics, Mathematics, and 
Speech. Electives outside the ten curricula of the college may be taken in 
any department of the university, if the student has the necessary 
prerequisites.

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.

and Physical Sciences at College Park contributes very substantially and 
ettectively to the research activities ot 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 

Acting Dean: Jean Hebeler 

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 Curriculum 
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 to those who meet the admission 
requirements specified below. The Department of Industrial, Technologi- 
cal, 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 

At this time admissions policies and procedures are under review. Below 
are the policies in effect at the time this catalog went to press. Consult the 
College Student Services Office or departments for current policies. 
Applicants to the University of Maryland who have declared an interest in 
education are admitted to a department in the college as intended majors. 
To enroll in professional course work in teacher education, intended 
majors must then be admitted to a teacher education maior. 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 intended 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 major, a student must ( 1 ) complete 
English 101 and Math 110 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. 

A student who initially fails 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 of three times. 
A plan for becoming eligible for 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 major in health or physical education should apply to 
the College of Education for admission to the professional program in 
Teacher Education. 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, scholas- 
tic and curricular requirements of the College of Education. The profes- 
sional education courses are restricted to degree-seeking majors who 
have met College of Education requirements for admission. 

Student Teaching 

Prior to receiving a student teaching placement, prospective student 
teachers must have been admitted to Teacher Education and have 
completed requirements described below. In programs requiring more 
than one student teaching placement, the first placement must be satis- 
factorily completed before the student begins the succeeding placement. 
Prior to assignment 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; (5) have 
on file favorable ratings from prior supervised experiences in school 
settings including evaluations of the EDHD 300 field experiences; and (6) 
have undergone a criminal background check. 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. 

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

Accreditation and Certification 

All bachelor-degree teacher preparation programs are accredited by the 
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and have been 
approved by the Office of Certification and Accreditation of the 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) 

1131 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 major 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 has been approved. Students 
should check with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, the college or 
the department for updated information.

Admission to College of Engineering 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for information on general LEP 
admissions policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review. Most first-time enter- 
ing freshmen will gain admission to the College of Engineering directly 
from high school, as allowed by space considerations within the College. 
Engineering has historically had more requests for its majors than can be 
accommodated, so freshmen generally need to present an above-aver- 
age high school record and a strong math SAT score to gain admission. 
Because space may be limited before all interested, eligible freshmen are 
admitted to the program, early application is encouraged. Freshmen 
admitted to the program will have access to the necessary advising 
through their initial semesters to help them determine if Engineering is an 
appropriate area for their interests and abilities. 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Engineering will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must meet the campus 
retention criteria. Students who do not meet this standard will not be 
allowed to continue in the LEP and will be required to select another major. 

Transfer Admission. The following requirements affect new transfer 
students to the university as well as on-campus students hoping to change 
majors into the College. Admission of transfer students may be severely 
limited, and capacity is determined each year in accordance with the 
success of incoming freshmen. 

In order to be admitted to Engineering, transfer students will be required 
to meet the following set of gateway requirements: (1) completion of 
CHEM 1 1 3. MATH 1 41 , and PHYS 1 61 with a minimum grade of C in each; 
and (2) attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work

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 develop- 
mental 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 for purposes of orderly administration among engi- 
neering students (see the Academic Regulations section of this 
catalog). Moreover, the College of Engineering establishes poli- 
cies which supplement the university regulations. 

College Regulations 

1 . The responsibility for proper registration and for satisfying stated 
prerequisites for any course must rest with the 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 Engineenng, 
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 Agncultural Engineenng 



College of Engineering 61 



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 9:00 
a.m. to 11:30a.mand 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the College of Engineering 
Student Affairs Office. 1131 Engineering Classroom Building, 405-3855. 
In addition, advising is available in the departments. See advising section 
in the specific engineering department entry for times and location. 

Departments and Degrees 

The College of Engineering offers the degree of Bachelor of Science in the 
following fields of study: Aerospace Engineering, Agricultural Engineering 
(see also College of Agriculture), Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineer- 
ing, Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechanical 
Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Undesignated Engineering (Engi- 
neering Option and Applied Science Option). 

All of the above programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation 
Commission of 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 
specialization. 

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 1 1 0. 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 
lollowing 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 1 5 will delay 
by a semester eligibility to take certain engineering courses. 

Sophomore Year 

During the sophomore year the student selects a sponsoring academic 
department (Aerospace, Agricultural, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Fire 
Protection, Mechanical, or Materials and Nuclear Engineering) and this 
department assumes the responsibility for the student's academic guid- 
ance, counseling, and program planning from that point until the comple- 
tion of the degree requirements of that department as well as the college. 
For the specific requirements, see the curriculum listing in each engineer- 
ing 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 Pennsylva- 
nia, 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 



62 College of Engineering 



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 
for the ensuing year. For additional information, contact the Student 
Affairs Office, 1 131 Engineering Classroom Building, 405-3855.

COLLEGE OF HUMAN ECOLOGY (HUEC) 

11 00 Marie Mount Hall, 405-2357 

Acting Dean: Dr. Muriel R. Sloan 
Acting Assistant Dean: Block 

As of this catalog's publication deadline, it is proposed that the College be 
disbanded and its programs redistributed to other units on campus. 

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

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

Admission 

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

Degrees 

The degree of Bachelor of Science is conferred for the satisfactory 
completion, with an average of C or better, of a prescribed curriculum of 
120 academic semester hour credits. No grade below C is acceptable in 
the departmental courses which are required for a departmental major. 

Curricula 

All students in the College of Human Ecology, in addition to meeting the 
University's general education requirements (CORE), are required to 
complete a series or sequence of courses to satisfy college and depart- 
ment requirements. The remaining courses needed to complete a pro- 
gram of study are elected by the student with the approval of his or her 
advisor. 

The final responsibility of meeting all the requirements for a specific major 
rests with each individual student.

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 cntena 
including teaching, research, facilities and job placement. 

Founded in 1947, the college has been accredited for close to three 
decades by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass 
Communication. Since it is within easy reach of the offices of Washington 
and Baltimore newspapers and the Washington bureaus of news organi- 
zations such as The New York Times, the Associated Press and the maior 
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-editonal. public relations, broad- 
cast news, advertising. Within the news-editorial sequence, emphases 
are provided in the areas of news, magazine and photojournalism 

Admission to College of Journalism 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for general LEP admissions 

policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review Most first-time enter- 
ing freshmen will gam admission to the College of Journalism directly from 
high school, as allowed by space considerations within the College. 
Because space may be limited before all interested freshmen are admit- 
ted to the program, early application is encouraged Freshmen admitted 
to the program will have access to the necessary advising through their 
initial semesters to help them determine if Journalism is an appropriate 
area for their interests and abilities 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Journalism will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must complete: (1 ) Funda- 
mental Studies: (2) 60°o of Distributive Studies; (3) ENGL 1 01 and JOUR 
201 with grades of C; and (4) a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 
Enrollment in JOUR 201 requires proof of grammar skills competency 
through attainment of a minimum score of 52 on the Test of Standard 
Written English (TSWE), 61 on the Test of Language Skills (TLS). or 22 
on the ACT English usage subsection Students who do not meet these 
requirements will not be allowed to continue in the LEP and will be required 
to select another major. 

Transfer Admission These requirements affect new transfer students to 
the university as well as on-campus students hoping to change majors to 
the College. Admission of transfer students may be severely limited, and 



College of Journalism 65 



capacity is determined each year in accordance with the success of 
incoming freshmen. 

In order to be admitted to Journalism, transfer students will be required to 
meet the following set of gateway requirements: ( 1 ) completion of Funda- 
mental Studies; (2) completion of 60°o of Distributive Studies; (3) comple- 
tion of ENGL 101 and JOUR 201 with grades of C; and (4) attainment of 
a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work attempted. Enroll- 
ment in JOUR 201 requires proof of grammar skills competency through 
attainment of a minimum score of 52 on the Test of Standard Written 
English (TSWE). 61 on the Test of Language Skills (TSL), or 22 on the 
ACT English usage subsection. The required GPA is set each year and 
may vary from year to year depending upon available space. Contact the 
College of Journalism or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for the 
current GPA standard 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to Journal- 
ism at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have extenuating 
or special circumstances which should be considered, may appeal in 
wntmg to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The student will be 
notified in writing of the appeal decision once it is made. 

Students admitted to Journalism as freshmen who do not pass the 45 
credit review but believe they have special circumstances which should be 
considered may appeal directly to the College. 

For further information, contact the Counselor for Limited Enrollment 
Programs at 301-314-8378 

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 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.

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 materials 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.

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

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

The general concentration provides a broad cultural and historical 
perspective. It requires 1 8 additional credit hours in one or more specialty 
areas within Afro-American Studies such as history, literature, govern- 
ment and politics, sociology or anthropology, as well as departmental 
seminars and a thesis. 



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

The major in Agricultural Engineering is offered through both the Colleges 
of Agriculture and Engineering Students enrolled in this program should 
consult their advisors. 

The Major 

This program is for students who wish to become registered professional 
engineers but who are also seriously interested in biological systems and 
how the physical and biological sciences interrelate. The biological and 
the engineering aspects of plant, animal, food processing and natural 
resource systems are studied. Agricultural Engmeenng graduates are 
prepared to apply engineering, mathematical and computer skills to 
design systems and facilities within the food production and processing 
system, in the protection of natural resources (soil, water, air) associated 
with this system and in other bioengineermg applications. Graduates find 
employment in design, management, research, education, sales, consulting 
or international service. 

Requirements for Major 

The curriculum is composed of: (1) the required CORE (general educa- 
tion) requirements of the institution: (2) a core of mathematics, physics, 
chemistry, and engineering sciences required of all engineering students: 
(3) sixteen credits of agricultural engineering design: and (4) twenty-two 
hours of electives to allow development of special student interests. 
Emphasis areas include aquacultural engineering, biological engineer- 
ing, plant systems engineering, animal systems engineering, food pro- 
cess engineering and natural resources engineering. 

Freshman Year 

The Freshman curriculum is the same for all Engineering departments

Agriculture is a complex scientific field, encompassing all other scientific 
and professional fields. However, majoring in Agricultural Sciences does 
not require an agricultural background. Students in this major have 
backgrounds as varied as is the field itself. The Agricultural Sciences 
program is designed for students who are interested in a broad education 
in the field of 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.

It has been recommended to the Campus Senate that this department be 
closed and its academic programs be phased out. 

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

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

Students in the agricultural education curriculum are expected to participate 
in the Collegiate FFA Chapter for developing skills necessary for advising 
FFA groups. Students must apply for admission to the teacher education 
program in agricultural education. Contact the Teacher Education Coor-

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). 

Requirements for Major 

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 /Introduction to American Studies (3): required of ma- 
jors. 

2. Three (3) or six (6) hours of additional lower level course work. 

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

4. Six (6) or nine (9) hours of upper level course work. 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. 

Interdisciplinary or Thematic Cores 

Afro-American Studies, Women's Studies, Urban Studies. Popular Cul- 
ture, Personality and Culture, Comparative Culture, Material Culture, 
Ethnic Studies, Business and Economic History, Folklore, Government 
and Politics, Education, Philosophy, Journalism. 



Advising 



Regular advising is an important element in the American Studies major, 
and students are expected to consult with their faculty advisor each 
semester.

The Major 

Anthropology, the holistic study of humanity, seeks to understand humans 
as a whole — as social animals who are capable of symbolic communica- 
tion through which they produce a rich cultural record — from the very 
beginning of time and all over the world. Anthropologists try to explain 
differences among humans — differences in their physical characteristics 
as well as in their attitudes, customary behavior, and artifacts. Since 
children learn their culture from the preceding generation, who in turn 
learned it from the preceding generation, culture has grown and changed 
through time as the species has spread over the earth. Anthropology is not 
the history of kings and great women or men or of wars and treaties: it is 
the history and the science of the evolution of human knowledge and 
behavior. 

Anthropology at UMCP offers rigorous training for many career options 
A strong background in anthropology is a definite asset in prepanng for a 
variety of academic and profession fields, ranging from the law and 
business, to comparative literature, philosophy and the fine arts. Whether 
one goes on to a Master's or a Ph.D., the anthropology BA prepares one 
for a wide range of non-academic employment, such as city and public 
health planning, development consulting, program evaluation, and public 
archaeology. 

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, biological anthropology, and 
linguistics. Within each area, the department offers some degree of 
specialization and provides a variety of opportunities for research and 
independent study. Laboratory courses are offered in biological anthro- 
pology, archaeology, and methods Field schools are offered in archae- 
ology and ethnography. The interrelationship of all branches of anthropol- 
ogy 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 pnmary educational goal 



Applied Mathematics Program 75 



of the Department's undergraduate coursework and internship and re- 
search components. 

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

All students have access to a twenty-workstation IBM computer laboratory 
located at 1 102 Woods Hall. 

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 (461); 

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

c. Eighteen hours of supporting courses (courses outside of anthro- 
pology offerings in fields that are complementary to the student'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". 

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 
advisor who will work closely with the student to tailor the program to fit the 
student's particular interests and needs. All Anthropology faculty mem- 
bers serve as academic advisors (and should be contacted individually). 
Each major is expected to select an academic advisor and to consult with 
him/her on a regular basis. For additional information, students should 
contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Dr. William Taft Stuart, 
0100A Woods Hall, 405-1435. 

Honors 

The Anthropology Department also offers an Honors Program that pro- 
vides the student an opportunity to pursue in-depth study of his or her 
interests. Acceptance is contingent upon a 3.5 GPA in anthropology 
courses and a 3.0 overall average. Members of this program are 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. 



Student Organizations 



Anthropology Student Association (ASA). An anthropology student as- 
sociation meets regularly to plan student events and to help coordinate 
various student and faculty activities. Meeting times are posted outside 
0133 Woods Hall. 

The department and the ASA jointly sponsor a public lecture series.

fDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

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. 

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

The Major 

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

The goal of the Art History and Archeology Department is to develop the 
student's aesthetic sensitivity and understanding of art as well as to imparl 
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 academicdisciplines, 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 requirements for a major in Art History and Archaeology are as 
follows: three ARTH courses (9 credits) at the 200 level; seven ARTH 
courses (21 credits) at the 300-400 level: either ARTT 1 00 or ARTT 1 1 0: 
a supporting area comprised of four courses (12 credits) in coherently 
related subject matter outside the Art History Department, of which two 
courses must be at the 300-400 level and in a single department Thus, 
there is required a total of 45 credits (30 in ARTH courses, 3 in an ARTT 
course, and 12 in the supporting area). 

No major credit can be received for ARTH 100.355.380,381 or 382 No 
course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy major or supporting 
area requirements. Students are encouraged to explore the diversity of 
geographical and chronological areas offered in the Art History program. 

Awards: The Department of Art History and Archeology offers two 
undergraduate awards each year: the J.K. Reed Fellowship Award to an 
upper-level major who will be studying at the university for at least one 
more semester and the Frank DiFederico Book Award to a senior nearing 
graduation.

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. 



Biological Sciences Program 77 



Requirements for Major 

Astronomy majors are required to take a two semester introductory 
astrophysics course sequence: ASTR 200, 350 as well as a two semester 
sequence on observational astronomy ASTR 310 (Optical Astronomy) 
and ASTR 41 (Radio Astronomy). Two additional upper level astronomy 
courses are also required. 

Students maionng 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 lor this sequence Astronomy majors are also required to take 
a series ol supporting courses in mathematics. These are MATH 1 40. 1 41 , 
240 and 241. In addition, MATH 246 is strongly recommended. 

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

Detailed information on typical programs and alternatives to the standard 
program can be found in the pamphlet entitled "Department Requirements 
for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronomy" which is available from 
the Astronomy department office. 

Facilities 

The Department of Astronomy has joined with two other universities in 
upgrading and operating an mm wavelength array located at Hat Creek in 
California Observations can be made remotely from the College Park 
campus. Several undergraduate students have been involved in projects 
associated with this array. The Department also operates a small obser- 
vatory on campus. This is equipped with a CCD camera which is used in 
the observing class. Results obtained at the observatory can be analyzed 
using the department's computer network. 

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 1 1 
is the lab that can be taken with or after ASTR 100. Several 300-level 
courses are offered primarily for non-science students who want to learn 
about a particular field in depth, such as the Solar System, Galaxies and 
the Universe, and Life in the Universe. Non-science majors should not 
normally take ASTR 200 or ASTR 350. 

Honors 

The Honors Program offers students of exceptional ability and interest in 
astronomy opportunities for part-time research participation which may 
develop into full-time summer projects. An honors seminar is offered for 
advanced students; credit may be given for independent work or study; 
and certain graduate courses are open for credit toward the 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 Department of Astronomy 
office at (301) 405-3001.

BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES PROGRAM 



College of Life Sciences 

Zoology-Psychology Building, 405-6892 



Director: Olek 



The Major 

The Biological Sciences curriculum is an interdepartmental program 
sponsored by the Departments of Botany, Entomology, Microbiology, and 
Zoology. The program is designed to challenge talented students as they 
explore and develop their interests by completing a common two year 
sequence of courses. Students may then elect to specialize in one of eight 
subjects areas (called "Specialization Areas") or to construct their own 
program under the Biological Sciences Individualized Studies option 
(BIVS). The defined Specialization Areas include Plant Sciences (PLNT), 
Entomology (ENTM), Microbiology (MICB), Zoology (ZOOL), Cell and 
Molecular Biology and Genetics (CMBG), Ecology, Evolutionary Biology 
and Behavior (EEBB), Physiology and Neurobiology (PHNB), and Marine 
Biology (MARB). Students selecting one of these areas complete 1 8 - 22 
credits of advanced course work in the junior and senior years. A complete 
list of Specialization Area requirements is available from the Biological 
Sciences Program Office (301-405-6892). 

The undergraduate curriculum in Biological Sciences at College Park 
emphasizes active learning through student participation in a variety of 
quality classroom and laboratory experiences. The well-equipped teach- 
ing laboratories incorporate modern research technologies to provide 
students with the very best learning environment. The program requires 
supporting course work in chemistry, mathematics and physics, but still 
allows time for exploring other academic disciplines and securing a quality 
general education. 

Each of the participating departments offers research opportunities through 
experiential learning internships that may be completed either in a faculty 
member's research laboratory or field site or at one of the many nearby 
research facilities. The National Institutes of Health, Patuxent Wildlife 
Refuge, the National Zoo, and the Chesapeake Bay Laboratory are just 
a few of the many sites utilized by UMCP students. 

Many of our graduates pursue advanced degrees in masters or doctoral 
programs or by entering medical, dental, or other professional schools. 
Several elect to seek employment as skilled technical personnel in 
government or industry research laboratories. Students emphasizing 
environmental biology find careers in fish and wildlife programs, zoos and 
museums. Other recent graduates are now science writers, sales repre- 
sentatives for the biotechnology industry and lawyers specializing in 
environmental and biotechnology related issues.

The Major 

The Chemical Engineering Department offers a general program in 
chemical engineering. In addition, stuoy programs in the specialty areas 
of applied polymer science, biochemical engineering, and process simu- 
lation and control are available. The latter programs are interdisciplinary 
with other departments at the university. The departmental programs 
prepare an undergraduate for graduate study or immediate industnal 
employment following the baccalaureate degree. 

Because of this wide range of ultimate applications, the chemical engineer

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 specialization 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 specialization. The 
undergraduate curriculum, instituted in the Fall 1990 semester, provides 
a sensible blend of required courses and electives. which permits stu- 
dents to pursue their interests without the risk of overspecialization at the 
undergraduate level.

"Jointly with unit indicated. 

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. 

Requirements for Major 

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

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

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

a. A grade of C or better in each course. 

b. CMSC 1 50. 1 1 3. 251 , and 280. (Some students may also need 
CMSC 112). 

c. A grade of C or better must be obtained in CMSC 1 50 and 1 1 2 
before taking CMSC 113 or CMSC 251: in CMSC 113 before 
taking CMSC 280. 330 and in CMSC 280 before taking CMSC 
311. Advanced placement may substitute for the CMSC 1 1 2 
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, 14 1,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 1 20 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 (30 1 ) 405-2672 to receive further 
information about the program. 

Financial Assistance 

There are opportunities for student employment as a tutor or as a member 
of the department's laboratory staff. Professors may also have funds to 
hire undergraduates to assist in research. Many students also participate 
in internship or cooperative education programs, working in the computer 
industry for a semester during their junior or senior years. 

Honors 

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

Student Organizations 

Computer-related extracurricular activities are arranged by our student 
chapter of the ACM , the professional group for computer scientists and by 
the Minority Computer Science Society. Meetings include technical lec- 
tures and career information. The department also participates in the 
programming contest run by the national ACM, and our teams have been 
very successful in this competition.

advanced study in both a seminarformat and independent study underthe 
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. CCJS388H, 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 on the basic 30-hour requirement. 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 and criminal justice 
course, and evidence of satisfactory writing ability.

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 student's professional and personal competencies. 
Each student is assigned to an advisor who guides him or her through the 
various stages of advancement in the program of music and music 
education.

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 of experi- 
ence at the lower level At the upper level students may either involve 
themselves in various general university electives, or they may concen- 
trate 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 gen- 
eral studies (encompassing dance history, literature and cnticism). 

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 



Economics 89 



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

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.

ECONOMICS (EC0N) 



Economists study these phenomena through the development of system- 
atic 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 otters 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 otters 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). 

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.

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. 



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) and ECON 306 
(formerly ECON 403). 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 and 306. 

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), 
ECON 380, or ECON 410; 

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 407, ECON 416, ECON 417, ECON 422, 
ECON 423, ECON 425, ECON 431 , ECON 441 , ECON 454, 
ECON 456, ECON 460, ECON 470, and ECON 476; 

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. 



90 Education Policy, Planning and Administration 



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

Study Sequences and Plans of Study 

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

The department urges that the student take ECON 201 and 203 and 
MATH 220 as soon as possible. Honors versions of ECON 201 and 203 
are offered for students seeking a more rigorous analysis of principles, 
departmental honors candidates, and those intending to attend 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 consider the advanced theory courses (ECON 407 
and ECON 41 7) 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 141, MATH 240 (or MATH 400), MATH 241 and MATH 246 as very 
useful preparation. 

Advising 

The department has academic advisors 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 five courses: ECON 407, 417, 422, 423, 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 date to review 
their curriculum plans and to apply for admission to the program. 

Awards 

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



Student Organizations 



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

The Major 

The Electrical Engineenng 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 sub|ects 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. 



Engineering, Bachelor of Science Degree 91 



The basic foundation in mathematical, physical, and engineering sci- 
ences 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, microelectron- 
ics, and power systems. Within these areas are courses in such topics as 
solid state electronics, integrated circuits, lasers, communications engi- 
neering, computer design, power engineering, digital signal processing, 
antenna design, and many others. Project courses allow undergraduate 
students to undertake independent study under the guidance of a faculty 
member in an area of mutual interest. 

Requirements for Major 

Requirements for the Electrical 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

ENGINEERING, BACHELOR OF SCIENCE 
DEGREE IN 

College of Engineering 

1131 Engineering Classroom Building, 405-3855 

General Regulations for the B.S. Engineering Degree: All under- 
graduate students in engineering will select their major field sponsoring 
department at the beginning of their second year regardless of whether 
they plan to proceed to a designated or an undesignated degree. A 
student wishing to elect the undesignated degree program may do so at 
any time following the completion of the sophomore year, or a minimum 
of fifty earned credits towards any engineering degree, and at least one 
semester prior to the time the student expects to receive the baccalaure- 
ate degree. As soon as the student elects to seek an undesignated 
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 preparation for entry into post- 
baccalaureate study in such fields as medicine, law, or business admin- 
istration; (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 to give the maximum flexibility for 
tailoring a program to the specific future career plans of the student. To 
accomplish these objectives, the program has two optional paths: an 
engineering option and an applied science option. 

The engineering option, which is ABET accredited, should be particu- 
larly attractive to those students contemplating graduate study or profes- 
sional employment in the interdisciplinary 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 contem- 
plating graduate work in environmental engineering might combine chemi- 
cal and civil engineering for his or her program; a student interested in 
systems and control engineering graduate work might combine electrical 
engineering with aerospace, chemical, or mechanical engineering. 

The applied science option, 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 ample 
time for decision-making. Either program may be taken on the regular 
four-year format or under the Maryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering 
Education.

Engineering fields of concentration available under the B.S. Engineering 
program as primary field within either the engineering option or the applied 
science option are aerospace engineering, engineering materials, agri- 
cultural engineering, fire protection engineering, chemical engineering, 
mechanical engineering, civil engineenng, nuclear engineering, and 



electrical engineering. All engineering fields of concentration may be used 
as a secondary field within the engineering option. 

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

J AII of the courses used to fulfill the fields of concentration requirements 
(thirty-six semester hours in the engineering option and thirty in the 
applied science option) must be at the 300 course number level or above. 
In addition, three courses with laboratory experience should be incorpo- 
rated into the program. 

■"For the applied science option each student is required, unless specifi- 
cally excused; and if excused, fifteen semester hours of approved 
electives will be required to complete satisfactorily a senior level project 
or research assignment relating the engineering and science fields of 
concentration. 

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

6 For the engineering option, the program must contain the proper design 
component, as specified by the ABET requirements. It is the responsibility 
of students and their advisors to ensure that the requirements are satisfied 
by the appropriate selection of courses in the primary and secondary 
fields of concentration. As part of the required design component, all 
students, except those choosing Nuclear Engineering as a primary field, 
must complete ENME 404.

The Major 

The English major 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 Major 

The major in Family and Community Development emphasizes an under- 
standing of the family as the primary social institution linking individuals to 
their world. The program has three interrelated foci 1) the family as a 
unique and dynamic social unit, 2) the development and functioning of the 
individuals within the family, and 3) the relationship of the family to its 
larger socio-cultural, historical and economic context. The course of study 
stresses a working knowledge of the development of individuals through- 
out the family life span, interpersonal relations, and resource use. Educa- 
tion about family life issues such as family life enrichment, intergenerational 
relations, family crises, legal problems, and changing family forms and 
lifestyles, will be studied. Intervention strategies alleviating and prevent- 
ing family problems and an understanding of the reciprocal relationships 
between families and the policies, practices, and management of institu- 
tions and organizations will be offered. The curriculum prepares students 
to be educators and have careers in direct service roles and mid-level 
management and policy positions emphasizing family. Opportunities exist 
in public, private and non-profit agencies and institutions working with 
family members, entire family units or family issues. Graduates also will 
be prepared for graduate study in the family sciences, human services 
administration, and other social and behavioral science disciplines and 
professions.

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 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. 

Modem 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

The Major 



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

Specialization is offered in the areas of flavor and food chemistry, food 
microbiology, food processing technology including freezing, thermal and 
aseptic processing, quality assurance, and the food commodity areas of 
fruits and vegetables, milk and dairy products, poultry and poultry prod- 
ucts, red meats and seafood products.

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 for a liberal arts education. 
The abilities to write clearly and to synthesize information and concepts 
are valued highly in geographical education and practice. Students of 
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 posi- 
tions in geography require graduate training. Many geographers take 
positions in scientific research, planning, management and policy analy- 
sis for both government and private agencies. 

Major Requirements Including Program Options 

Within any of the specializations available in the geography major pro- 
gram it is possible for students to adjust their programs to fit their individual 
interests. The geography major totals thirty-seven semester hours. In 
addition to the thirty-seven semester hours, the geography major is 
required to take an additional fifteen semester hours of supporting 
coursework outside of the department. The hours can be either in one 
department 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, 1 125 LeFrak Hall, 
405-3140. Supporting courses generally are related to the area of spe- 
cialty in geography. The pass-fail option is not applicable to major or 
supporting courses. A minimum grade of C in each course is required for 
major and supporting courses. 

The required courses for geography majors are as follows: 

Semester 
• Credit Hours 

Geography Core (GEOG 201, 202, 203, 21 1, 305, 310) 16 

An additional techniques course (selected from 370, 

372, 373, 380) 3 

A regional course 3 

Elective systematic courses 15 

Total 37 

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 2 1 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 370: Cartographic Principles. GEOG 372: Remote Sensing. 
GEOG 373: Computer Mapping, and GEOG 380: Local Field Course.

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

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, 21 1, 305, and 310. An application form from the 
undergraduate geography advisor must be submitted one semester 
before the internship is desired. See Professor Cirrincione, 1 125 LeFrak 
Hall (405-3140).

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 through the application of the principles of 
physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics 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 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 the direction of 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 for their particular interest, rather 
than for the broad needs of the professional career. Five areas of 
concentration include: Advanced Study for Graduate School, Energy and 
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. Some courses required 
field trips for which students are expected to pay for room (if required), 
board, and part of the transportation costs.

The Department ol Government and Politics otters programs designed to 
prepare students lor government service, politics, foreign assignments, 
teaching, and a variety of graduate programs, law schools, and for 
intelligent and purposeful citizenship. Satisfactory completion ol 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 social sciences. 

The Department of Government and Politics combines both philosophical 
and scientific concerns in its overall program as well as in specific courses 
and emphasizes such broad areas as political development, policy 
analysis, social justice, political economy, conflict, and human rights. 
These broad conceptual areas are integral components of the formal 
fields in the department. The formal fields are (1) 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. 

Admission to the Department of Government and 
Politics 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for general LEP admissions 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review. Most first-time enter- 
ing freshmen will gain admission to the Department of Government and 
Politics directly from high school, as allowed by space considerations 
within the Department. Because space may be limited before all inter- 
ested freshmen are admitted to the program, early application is encour- 
aged. Freshmen admitted to the program will have access to the neces- 
sary advising through their initial semesters to help them determine if 
Government and Politics is an appropriate area for their interests and 
abilities. 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Government and Politics will be 
subject to a performance review by the time they have completed 45 
credits. To meet the provisions of the review, these students must 
complete: (1) one course in each of the CORE distributive studies 
divisions with a combined average of 2.6; (2) a minimum cumulative GPA 
of 2.0; and (3) GVPT 100, GVPT 170, and ECON 201 or 205 with a 
minimum average of 2.6 for the three courses. Students may attempt 
ECON 201 or 205, but not both. Students who do not meet this standard 
will not be allowed to continue in the LEP and will be required to select 
another major. 

Transfer Admission. The following requirements affect new transfer 
students to the university as well as on-campus students hoping to change 
majors to the Department. Admission of transfer students may be severely 
limited, and capacity is determined each year in accordance with the 
success of incoming freshmen. 

In order to be admitted to Government and Politics, transfer students will 
be required to meet the following set of gateway requirements: (1) 
completion of GVPT 100, GVPT 170, and ECON 201 or 205 (only one, 
ECON 201 or 205, may be attempted) with a minimum average of 2.6; and 
(2) attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work 
attempted. The required GPA is set each year and may vary from year to 
year depending upon available space. Contact the Department of Govern- 
ment and Politics or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for the 
current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to Govern- 
ment and Politics at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have 
extenuating or special circumstances which should be considered, may

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 orderto 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 part 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. 

A guide to the major is available through the department office in room 
0100, LeFrak. 

Advising 

Information on advising for hearing and speech sciences may be obtained 
by calling the department office, 405-4214. 

Special Opportunities: The department operates a Heanng and Speech 
Clinic. 405-4218, that serves the campus and surrounding area, and 
provides an in-house opportunity for the clinical training of students. 
Department facilities also include an integrated audio-visual listening and 
viewing laboratory, and several well-equipped research laboratones 

Student Organizations 

Hearing and speech majors are invited to join the departmental branch of 
the National Student Speech-Language and Hearing Association 
(NSSLHA)

Hebrew Language and Literature 

The Hebrew Program provides, both to beginners and to those with 
previous background, an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills in 
Hebrew language, literature, culture, and thought. Elementary and 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. 

Honors and Awards 

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

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

East Asian Languages and Literatures 
The Major 

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

After completing the prerequisite of one year of language (twelve credits): 
CHIN 101 (Elementary Chinese; six hours per week, fall), CHIN 102 
(Elementary Spoken Chinese; three hours per week, spring), and CHIN 
1 03 (Elementary Written Chinese; three hours per week, spring) or JAPN 
101 (Elementary Japanese I; six hours per week, fall) and JAPN 102 
(Elementary Japanese II; six hours per week, spring), students must 
complete thirty-six credits for the major course requirements (eighteen 
language, six civilization/history, twelve elective). No grade lower than C 
(2.0) may be used toward the major. 

Chinese Course Requirements 

Language: CHIN 201 , 202, 203, 204, 301 , 302; Civilization/History: Option 
1 : HIST 284 and 481 (or 485); Option 2: HIST 285 and 480; four electives 



at the 300 level or above in Chinese language, literature, linguistics, or 
other East Asian subjects, subject to the approval of student's advisor. 
Among the four, one must be in the area of Chinese linguistics, and one 
in the area of Chinese literature, subject to the approval of the student's 
advisor. 

Japanese Course Requirements 

Language: JAPN 201, 202, 203, 204, 301, 302; Civilization/History: 
Option 1 : HIST 284 and 483; Option 2 : HIST 285 and 482; four electives 
at the 300 level or above Among the four, one must be in the area of 
Japanese linguistics and one in Japanese literature, subject to the 
approval of the student's advisor. 

Supporting Courses for Chinese or Japanese 

Students are strongly urged to take additional courses in a discipline 
relating to their particular field of interest, such as art, history, linguistics, 
literary criticism, or comparative literature. The range of supporting 
courses can be decided upon in consultation with the student's advisor. 

Special Language Courses 

In addition to the more traditional courses in literature in translation, 
linguistics, and advanced language acquisition, courses in both Chinese 
and Japanese business language at the third-year level are offered. 
Students are also encouraged to spend at least one summer or semester 
in China (Taiwan or the People's Republic of China) or Japan in intensive 
language study under one or another of the university's exchange pro- 
grams with foreign universities or at other approved centers of higher 
education. 

Internship Program 

This program allows students to gam practical experience by working in 
Washington/Baltimore area firms, corporations, and social service orga- 
nizations that are East Asia-related, as well as in various branches of the 
Federal government. Students are also invited to apply for the East Asian 
Studies Certificate. Please check the appropriate entry for details.

The Department of History seeks to broaden the student's cultural 
background through the study of history and to provide preparation for 
those interested in law, publishing, teaching, journalism, government 
service, and graduate study. 

A faculty advisor assists each major in planning a curriculum to meet his 
or her personal interests. A "program plan," approved by the advisor, 
should be filed with the department as soon as possible. Students are 
required to meet with an assigned advisor once every semester or sign a 
waiver during preregistration. 

The department sponsors a History Undergraduate Association which 
majors and other interested students are encouraged to join.

HOUSING AND DESIGN (HSAD) 

It has been recommended to the Campus Senate that this department be 
closed and its academic programs be phased out.

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 multidisciplinary nature 
of the field as well as the varied interests of housing majors. Consequently, 
students under the close supervision and advisement of the faculty are 
given the opportunity to develop a program suitable to their interests and 
career goals. Aside from the required housing courses 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 func- 
tional requirements, an understanding of the needs and motivations of the 
users and sponsors, considerations of cost, and compliance with codes 
and regulations. Functional and imaginative applications of design skills 
to space planning and furnishing of commercial, institutional, and residen- 
tial interiors are stressed. Special courses include gaming simulation in 
design and seminars in theoretical concerns. A student chapter of the 
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 communica- 
tion are the same as those of the painter and the sculptor, the purposes 
and methods of the designer differ from those of the artist 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. 

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 APDS101, 102, 103, and EDIT 160. 

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

'Distinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The Department of Human Development offers: (1) graduate courses in 
human development at the 200, 300 and 400 levels; (2) graduate 
programs leading to the M.A., M.Ed. Ed.D and Ph.D. degrees and the 
AGS. certificate; and (3) field experiences and internships to develop 
competence in applying theory to practice in schools and other settings. 
Areas of specialization in human development include educational psy- 
chology, infancy, early childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and aging. 
Research in educational psychology, social, physiological, personality 
and cognitive areas with emphasis on the social aspects of development 
enhance the instructional 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 specialization areas such as (1) infancy and early childhood, 
(2) adolescence, (3) aging, (4) human services (social service, recreation, 
corrections, etc.); and (5) educational psychology Major purposes of 
undergraduate offerings in human development are (1) providing experi- 
ences 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. 

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

The department 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. Physical, chemical and biological sciences in 
relation to food are emphasized. 

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 labora- 
tory 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 Pro- 
gram) and the requirements of the 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 certifica- 
tion in Maryland. The vocational-technical curriculum requires trade 
competence 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 
representative 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 
student must complete 128 hours of university credit. The major is 
intensive and involves required courses in academic support, content, 
and professional 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.

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. 

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 "Grammatical Theory and a Lan- 
guage". In each case, students take a common core of LING courses: 
LING 200. 240, 311-312, 321-322. Beyond this core, students must 
specialize by completing an additional nine hours in LING plus one of the 
following: either eighteen hours from selected courses in HESP, PHIL and 
PSYC. or eighteen hours in a particular language. The specializations in 
detail are: 

Grammars and Cognition 

LING 440— Grammars and Cognition 

Two 300/400 LING electives 

PHIL 466— Philosophy of Mind 

HESP 400— Speech and Language Development in Children 

OR HESP 498 — Seminar in Psycholinguistics 
PSYC 442— Psychology of Language 
Three 300/400 electives in HESP. PHIL, PSYC or CMSC 

Grammatical Theory and a Language 

LING 410— Grammars and Meaning and LING 41 1— 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 major 
issue in all fields of engineering. Materials which are strong and light at the 
same time are needed for space structures; faster electro-optical 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 vanety 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 Engineering deals with the practical use of nuclear energy from 
nuclearfission, 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,

""Joint Appointment: IPST 

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

Requirements for Major 

Each mathematics major must complete, with a grade of C or better in 
each course, the following: 

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

2. Eight MATH/MAPUSTAT 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 104 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 
(in) MATH 446-447 
(iv) STAT 410-420. 
(v) MATH/MAPL 472-473 

(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 icebut 
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) PHYS141,142.andanupperlevelphysicscourseapproved 
by the Mathematics Department 

(b) ENES 110. PHYS 161. ENES 220 

(c) i) CMSC 112. 11 3(or 122), and one of CMSC 211. 220 
ii) CMSC 112. 150.251 

(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. 411.414, 415. 417. 430. 



Measurement, Statistics, and Evaluation 115 



432. 436, 437. 445, 446, 447, 452, STAT 410. 411, 420. Students 
preparing for graduate school in mathematics should include 
MATH 403. 405, 410and411 in their programs MATH 463 (or 660) 
and MATH 432 (or 730) are also desirable. Other courses from the 
above list and graduate courses are also appropriate. 

2. Secondary teaching: the following courses are required to teach 
mathematics at the secondary level: MATH 402 or 403, 430 and 
EDCI 451 . (EDCI 451 is acceptable as one of the eight upper level 
math courses required for a mathematics major.) These additional 
courses are particularly suited for students preparing to teach: 
MATH 406. 445, 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 41 0. 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 411 should 
be added or perhaps substituted for STAT 450. To prepare for 
graduate work, STAT 410 and 420 give the best background, with 
STAT 411, 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 450, 475. Students interested in this area should 
take CMSC 1 1 2, 1 1 3 as early as possible, and CMSC 420, 21 1 are 
also suggested. 

5. Applied mathematics: the courses which lead most rapidly to 
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 
mathematics. 

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. 

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 se- 
quence is normally by invitation but any interested student may apply to 
the Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee for admission. 

Participants in the University Honors Program may also enroll in special 
honors sections of the lower level mathematics courses (MATH 140H, 
141 H, 240H, 241 H, 246H). 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 University Honors Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does 
not imply acceptance in the other. Neither honors calculus sequence is a 
prerequisite for participating in the Mathematics Honors Program, and 
students in these sequences need not be mathematics majors. 



Awards 

Aaron Strauss Scholarships. Up to two are awarded each year to 
outstanding junior Math Majors. The recipient receives full remission of 
(in-state) tuition and fees. Applications may be obtained early in the spring 
semester from the Mathematics Undergraduate Office. 1117 Mathemat- 
ics Building. 

Higginbotham Prize. An award (up to $500) is made to an outstanding 
senior math major in the spring. 

Placement in Mathematics Courses 

The Department of Mathematics has a large 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.

For Advanced Undergraduates and Graduates 

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 levels 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, combust'on, 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.

Professor and Chair: Hudson 

Professors: Baer. Ellingson, Shukla, Thompson, Vernekar 
Associate Professors: Carton, Dickerson, Pinker, Robock 
Adjunct Professor: Sellers 

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 171, 
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 meteorology. 

Students who may be preparing for graduate education in meteorology 
are strongly advised to pursue further coursework from among the areas 
of physics, applied mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and 
statistics to supplement coursework in meteorology. With proper counseling 
from the Department of Meteorology advisor, the student wishing to 
graduate with an 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 rather than a body of doctrine. Thus, in all courses 
students can expect to receive concentrated training in thinking clearly 
and inventively and in expressing themselves exactly about philosophical 
issues. This training has general applicability to all professions in which 
intellectual qualities are highly valued, such as law, medicine, govern- 
ment, publishing and business management. With this in view the major 
in philosophy is designed to serve the interests of students who are 
preparing for careers outside of philosophy, as well as the interests of 
those who are preparing for graduate study in philosophy. The department 
also offers a wide range of courses in the philosophy of various disciplines 
for non-majors. 

Requirements for Major 

For students matriculating before June 1, 1991: 

(1 ) a total of at least thirty hours in philosophy, no including PHIL 1 00 
or PHIL 386-6; 

(2) PHIL 271, 31 0,320, 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. 

For students matriculating after June 1, 1991: 

(1) a total of at least thirty-six hours in philosophy; 



(2) PHIL 310, 320, 326. either 271 or 273, either 250 or 360 or 380 
or 462 or 464, either 341 or 346, and at least two courses

Chair: Williams 
Astronomy: Harrington 
Chemistry: Harwood 
Computer Science: Kaye 
Geology: Stifel 
Engineering: Walston 
Mathematics: Alter 
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 1 40, 1 41 and one other math course for 
which MATH 141 is a prerequisite (11 or 12 credits); CHEM 103 and 113, 
or 1 05 and 1 1 5 (8 credits); PHYS 1 62, 262, 263 (1 1 credits); or PHYS 171, 
272, 273, 275, 276, 375 (1 4 credits); CMSC 1 04 (4 credits); or 1 1 2/1 1 3 (8 
credits). 

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



120 Physics 



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 18 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. 

Honors 

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

Psychology 121 



The Major 

Psychology can be classified as a biological science (Bachelor o( Science 
degree) and a social science (Bachelor ol 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 1 4 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 1 00, 200 and two laboratory courses chosen from 
PSYC 400, 410, 420, 440, and 450 In order to assure breadth of 
coverage, Psychology courses 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; 

Area II: 221 , 341 . 420, 421 , 423. 424, 440, 442, 443, 444; 

Area III: 235, 330, 332, 334, 337, 353, 354, 355, 356, 357, 432, 433, 435, 

436,455, 456, 457, 458; 
Area IV: 336, 354, 361 , 450, 451 , 452, 460, 462, 463, 464, 465, 466 

In addition, all students must complete (a) either MATH 1 1 1 , or MATH 1 40 
or MATH 220; (b) one of the following laboratory courses: BIOL 105, 
CHEM103, 104. 105, 113, 115, KNES 360, PHYS 121, 141, 142, 191/5, 
192/6, 293/5,294/6, 262, 263, ZOOL 201, 202, 210. 212; and (c) ENGL 
101 or an English literature course from a prescribed department list. 

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree must complete a 15 
credit supporting course sequence in relevant math and/or science 
courses including two laboratory courses and 9 credits at the advanced 
level. The 15 credits must be completed with at least a 2.0 average. 
Students should consult the current Psychology Undergraduate Program 
Guide for a list of approved advanced Math-Science Courses. 

A grade of C or better must be earned in all 35 credits of psychology 
courses used for the major and all credits used to meet the Math-English- 
Science supporting course sequence. No course may be used as a 
prerequisite unless a grade of C is earned in that course prior to its use as 
a prerequisite. The prerequisite for any required laboratory course is a 2.5 
grade point average in PSYC 1 00 and 200. The departmental grade point 
average will be a computation of grades earned in all psychology courses 
taken (except 386. 387, 478, and 479) and the courses selected to meet 
the Math-English-Science sequence. The GPA in the major must be at 
least 2.0. 

Admission to the Department of Psychology 

See the Admissions section in this catalog for general LEP admissions 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review. Most first-time enter- 
ing freshmen will gain admission to the Department of Psychology directly 
from high school, as allowed by space considerations within the Depart- 
ment. Because space may be limited before all interested freshmen are 
admitted to the program, early application is encouraged. Freshmen 
admitted to the program will have access to the necessary advising 
through their initial semesters to help them determine if Psychology is an 
appropriate area for their interests and abilities. 

Freshmen who are admitted directly to Psychology will be subject to a 
performance review by the time they have completed 45 credits. To meet 
the provisions of the review, these students must complete: (1 ) the Math/ 
English/Science supporting course sequence with a C or better in each 
course; and (2) PSYC 1 00 and 200 with a minimum average of 2.5 for the 
two courses. Students who do not meet this standard will be required to 
select another major. 



Transfer Admission The following requirements affect new transfer 
students to the univesity as well as on-campus students hoping to change 
maiors to the Department. Admission of transfer students may be severely 
limited, and capacity is determined each year in accordance with the 
success of incoming freshmen 

In order to be admitted to Psychology, transfer students will be required 
to meet the following set of gateway requirements: 

Internal (on-campus) Transfers ( 1 ) Completion of PSYC 200 and one 
other 200-level PSYC course, both to be taken at College Park. (2) 
Completion of the supporting course lab science requirement. (3) Attain- 
ment of a C in each course listed in (1 ) and (2), with a combined GPA of 
2.5 for all three. (4) Attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all 
college-level work attempted. 

External Transfers: (1) Completion of PSYC 200 and one other PSYC 
course beyond the introductory level, equivalent to a College Park 
psychology course. The PSYC 200 equivalent course must include 
inferential statistics and prepare the students to handle analysis of 
variance and regression. (2) Completion of the supporting course lab 
science requirement. (3) Attainment of a C in each course listed in (1 ) and 
(2), with a combined GPA of 2.5 for all three. (4) Completion of a course 
in probability or calculus equivalent to MATH 1 1 1 , 1 20, or 1 40 with a grade 
of C or better. (5) Attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college- 
level work attempted. 

The required GPA is set each year and may vary from year to year 
depending upon available space. Contact the Department of Psychology 
or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for the current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to Psy- 
chology at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have extenu- 
ating or special circumstances which should be considered, may appeal 
in writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The students will be 
notifed in writing of the appeal decision once it is made. Contact the 
Counselor for Limited Enrollment Programs at 301/314-8378 for further 
information. 

Students admitted to Psychology as freshmen who do not pass the 45 
credit review but believe they have special circumstances which should be 
considered may appeal directly to the Department.

The RTVF Major 

The purpose of the Radio-Television-Film major is to provide a liberal 
education, leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree, in all facets of broadcast 
communications and the cinematic arts. Our curriculum offers courses in 
historical and critical approaches to film and broadcasting, courses in the 
cultural effects of communications, broadcasting management studies, 
and production courses in sound, film, and television. Radio-Television- 
Film graduates go on to do post-graduate work in communications or 
cinema studies, or enter the fields of filmmaking, script writing, television 
production, broadcast management, corporate television, film archival 
work, film distribution, and other areas of the communications industry. 

Major Requirements 

Thirty hours of course work in Radio-Television-Film, exclusive of courses 
taken to satisfy college requirements. Only fifteen of these credits may be 
in production oriented courses. All courses require the grade of C or better. 
Three foundation courses, RTVF 212, 213, and 214, are required of all 
prospective majors who have satisfied the requirements of the limited 
enrollment admissions process. At least four courses from the 300 level 
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. 

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); 

2. Completed, as a part of the twenty-eight required credits, English 
101 and Math 1 10 (or their equivalents). 

The student must maintain the cumulative grade point average for at least 
one semester after admission to the RTVF major. 

Students who have met the standards for admission should visit the Office 
of Undergraduate Admissions (Mitchell Building), with their transcript, to 



complete an application. Upon admission, students will be considered 
provisional RTVF majors until successful completion of RTVF 212, 213, 
and 214. 

Fieldwork and Internship Opportunities 

Supervised internships in a variety of private, educational, and govern- 
ment broadcasting and film organizations are available to RTVF majors 
who have completed at least 18 maior credits with an overall average of 
at least 2.8.

Work experience) and RTVF 385 (Field Work Analysis) up to a maximum 
of three credits each. These courses are not repeatable RTVF 384 may 
only be taken Satisfactory-Fail with the grade based upon a written 
evaluation by the intern's supervisor at the particular organization. Only 
the credits earned in RTVF 385, in which a letter grade is given, may be 
counted toward the major requirement. The grade for RTVF 385 will be 
assigned by the student's faculty supervisor, based on the quality of a 
project completed in conjunction with the field work experience, the scope 
of which must be consistent with the number of credits for which the 
student is enrolled.

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: Germanic and Slavic Lan- 
guages and Literatures. Government and Politics, History, Economics, 
Geography, Philosophy, and Sociology. Student may plan their curricu- 
lum 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 1 01 , 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 at the 300 level 
or above. These twenty-four hours must be taken in at least five different 
departments, if appropriate courses are available, and may include 
language-literature courses beyond those required above. 

It is recommended but not required that the student who plans on doing 
graduate work complete at least eighteen hours at the 300 level or above 
(which may include courses applicable to the Russian Area program) in 
one of the above-mentioned departments. It is also recommended that 
students who plan on doing graduate work in the social sciences, 
government and politics, economics, geography, and sociology take 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 societies, institutions, organizations, 
groups, and individuals. Sociological studies range from the social factors 
that affect individuals, to group processes, and societal change. The 
strengths of the department are the study of population (demography), 
military sociology, political economy, social psychology, and the connec- 
tions among gender, work, and family. 

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 

Undergraduate specializations are available in research methods, social 
psychology, social demography, social institutions, and inequality. These 
specializations can often be integrated with a second major. This program 
versatility and the rich experiential learning possibilities of the Washington 
metropolitan area combine to make the sociology curriculum a valuable 
career choice. 

Requirements for Major 

The following represent new requirements effective Spring. 1991. All 
students declaring Sociology as their major prior to Spring, 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 these hours 
are in sociology coursework. which must be completed with a minimum 
grade of C in each course; 20 hours are in required courses and 1 8 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 majors 



are SOCY 1 00 (Introduction), SOCY 201 ' (Statistics), SOCY 203 (Theory), 
and SOCY 202 (Methods), SOCY 441 (Stratification) and one additional 
upper level methods course." 

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 of 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.

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, 
and 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.

The Special Education Department offers an innovative and rigorous 
undergraduate program which prepares teachers of infants, children, or 
young adults with disabilities. This program has been nationally recog- 
nized for many of its exemplary features. It is a five-year ( 1 semester, 1 50 
credit hour) professional certification program which graduates students 
with a Bachelor of Science degree in special education with full special 
education teacher certification in the State of Maryland and certification 
reciprocity in twenty-eight other states. Students considering a special 
education major enroll in courses which meet university and college 
requirements while they take supporting coursework designed to provide 
an understanding of normal human development and basic psychological 
and sociological principles of human behavior. Special Education stu- 
dents receive specialized training in the following areas: language devel- 
opment; motor development; social-emotional development; normal hu- 
man behavior; social and educational needs of individuals with disabili- 
ties; diagnostic and educational assessment procedures; instructional 
procedures and materials; curriculum development; classroom and be- 
havior management; effective communication with the parents and fami- 
lies of children with disabilities; community resource planning; and local, 
state, and federal laws concerning children and youth with disabilities. 
Graduates of the program are expected to master specific skills in each 
of these areas. 

Requirements for Major 

Students interested in majoring in special education must consult a 
departmental advisor as early as possible after matriculation at the 
university since the curriculum requires an extensive and sequenced 
program of studies. Students accepted as Special Education majors take 
a two-semester sequence of generic special education courses and 
practicum experiences during the third year (Semesters V and VI). These 
courses provide the student with a solid foundation in theory and practice 
related to the education of all children with disabilities across a wide range 
of ages. During Semester VI, students select one of the following four 
areas of specialization: 

1 . Education of the Severely Handicapped (SH) 

2. Early Childhood Special Education (EC) 

3. Education of the Educationally Handicapped (EH) 

4. Secondary and Transition Special Education (ST) 

Students select two specialty areas and are accepted into one of their two 
specialty area choices. Coursework in each of these four areas is 
designed to develop expertise with a specific special education popula- 
tion Students work directly with children or youth with disabilities during 
each semester, leading up to student teaching during the last semester. 
Specialty area programs include twelve to fifteen hours of electives. 

Combined Bachelor's/Master's Program 

Selected undergraduate students majoring in special education will be 
eligible for dual application of credit to both the bachelor's and master's 
degrees. A student desiring graduate credit should apply for admission to 
the Graduate School during the last semester of the fourth year. If 
admitted to the Graduate School, the student may select up to twelve 
credits (four courses) of specified coursework from the fifth year of the 
undergraduate program to be applied simultaneously toward the credits 
required for the master's degree in special education at the University of 
Maryland. The selected courses may not include field practica or student 
teaching experiences. Students will be expected to fulfill supplemental 
requirements in the selected courses. To complete the master's degree, 
students must fulfill all Graduate School requirements for the degree, with 
the exception of the selected 400-level courses 



Admission 

Prior to formal acceptance as a special education major, all students are 
required to enroll in a special education introductory course (EDSP 210) 
which provides a survey of the history and current issues in special 
education. Upon successful completion of the introductory course and 
forty-five semester hours of requirements, students apply for formal 
admission to the professional program of the Department of Special 
Education by submitting an application with a statement of intent specify- 
ing their professional goals. To be accepted as a full special education 
major, students must fulfill the College of Education requirements lor 
admission to Teacher Education, as well as the following departmental 
conditions: 

1 . Completion of coursework indicated below with an asterisk. 

2. Admission is competitive beyond the minimum 2.5 grade point 
average required for consideration. 

3. Submission of an application together with a statement of intent 
specifying the applicant's professional goals. 

Admittance will be based on the completion of the required courses, the 
grade point average, the applicant's experience with persons with disabili- 
ties, and the appropriateness and clarity of the professional goal state- 
ment. An appeals process has been established for students who do not 
meet the competitive GPA for admission, but who are applying in connection 
with special university programs including affirmative action and aca- 
demic promise. 

Advising 

The Department of Special Education provides academic advisement 
through a faculty and a peer advisement program. Special education 
majors are assigned a faculty advisor, who is carefully matched to the 
student's area of interest. It is required that all students receive advise- 
ment on a semester basis. Students are urged to use the Special 
Education Advising Center. 1235 Benjamin Building.

The departmental curriculum is designed to provide a liberal education in 
the arts and sciences of human communication as well as preparation for 
career opportunities in business, government, education, and related 
fields of endeavor. Within the curriculum, students may pursue academic 
programs which emphasize a broad range of disciplinary areas, including 
interpersonal communication, organizational communication, political 
communication, health communication, educational communication, cog- 
nition and persuasion, rhetorical theory, history of rhetoric, and criticism 
of public discourse. 

The Major 

Major requirements include completion of thirty semester hours in Speech 
Communication and eighteen semester hours in supporting courses. No 
course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy major or supporting 
course requirements.

The Department of Textiles and Consumer Economics is devoted to the 
development and dissemination of knowledge concerning consumers 
and their near environment. The department offers the Bachelor of 
Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. 

Students in Textiles and Consumer Economics may select one of four 
majors which offer diverse professional opportunities. Specific careers 
depend on the major area of emphasis although there is overlapping of 
career opportunities in some instances reflecting similar course require- 
ments. The majors offered by the department are as follows: 

Apparel Design 

In this major students develop an understanding of the interrelationships 
between apparel design and apparel performance. Emphasis is placed on 
artistic expression and creativity, textile materials, and the design of 
apparel to meet different needs and different socio-economic conditions. 
Graduates are prepared for positions as designers, assistant designers, 
stylists, fashion executives, fashion coordinators, consultants to the home 
sewing industry, or extension and consumer educators. 

Textile Marketing/Fashion Merchandising 

These two programs emphasize the marketing and retailing of textile 
products and combine a background in textile materials with courses in 
marketing, retailing and consumer behavior. Students may select an 
option in (a) textile marketing or (b) fashion merchandising. An internship 
experience gives students the opportunity to apply what they have learned 
in class and prepares them for careers in marketing and retailing once they 
graduate. Graduates completing the textile marketing option will be 
prepared for marketing positions with fiber, textile, or apparel companies. 
They may work in product development, sales, merchandising, promo- 
tion, market research, and management. Graduates completing the 
fashion merchandising option will be prepared for careers in retailing with 
department, specialty, or mass merchandising stores. They may work in 
buying, merchandising, fashion coordination, publicity, personnel, and 
management. 

Textile Science 

This major emphasizes the scientific and technological aspects of textiles. 
It is designed to provide students with a background in textile materials 
and textile science including the engineering and finishing of fabrics for 
specific end uses. Many students in the major go on to graduate study. 
Graduates are prepared for careers in industry and government. They 
may work in research and testing laboratories, in consumer technical 
service and marketings programs, in quality control, in buying and product 
evaluation, and in consumer education and information programs. 

Consumer Economics 

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



To graduate, students must complete the required department and 
supporting courses with the required grades. Human Ecology require- 
ments and University Studies Program requirements. Students should 
consult the current Undergraduate Catalog and Department Major Guides 
and also consult with their faculty advisor. All students must complete a 
minimum of 120 credit hours to earn a Bachelor of Science degree. 
Specific requirements for each major (or option) are as follows:

The Major 

The Department of Urban Studies and Planning offers a program of study 
leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Urban Studies. The program is 



Urban Studies and Planning 131 



designed to encourage students either (1) to direct their learning toward 
planning and management careers in metropolitan-area organizations, or 
(2) to study urbanization processes and methods as a means toward 
earning a general education The undergraduate urban studies and 
planning program is built on several introductory and methods courses 
that examine the city in its metropolitan, interregional, national, and 
international policy contexts The problems ol planning and management 
ot the metropolis are stressed. Students are encouraged by the 
multidisciplinary urban studies and planning faculty to take advantage of 
the rich and extensive cross-departmental resources at College Park and 
are expected to select an urban-related specialization from another 
discipline. Inasmuch as the department exists to serve the planning and 
management personnel and research needs of metropolitan organiza- 
tions in the non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors, career guidance 
and advice on job placement have a high priority Students are provided 
with advice in finding available vacancies, with resume writing and 
interview preparation. Urban Studies majors are prepared to enter the 
professional arena or to continue with advanced study. 

Each year the department sponsors the Lefrak lectures. This lecture 
senes features highly-reputed scholars and practitioners in urban plan- 
ning or urban policy formulation issues of the information age. A feature 
of the series is to expand our understanding of urbanization driven by job 
creation in high-technology manufacturing and higher-level services. 

Requirements for Major 

Urban Studies majors must complete thirty-nine semester hours of 
Departmental requirements with a minimum grade of C in each course. 
Fifteen of these hours must be core Urban Studies courses, including a 
Senior Capstone course in which students will write a major paper on an 
urban topic. Fifteen more must be in an urban-related focus in another 
department, such as Afro-American Studies, Architecture, Economics. 
Geography, Government and Politics, or Sociology. Six credits must be in 
an urban specialization, including one upper division course, in the 
department or elsewhere. Three credits are a statistics and methods 
course, preferably in the department of disciplinary focus.

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary academic program 
designed to examine the historical contributions made by women, reex- 
amine and reinterpret existing data about women, and introduce students 
to the methodology of feminist scholarship. The program offers interdis- 
ciplinary core courses on women, encourages the offering of courses on 
women in otherdisciplines, and promotes the discovery of new knowledge 
about women. Women's Studies courses challenge students to question 
traditional knowledge about women and men and to examine differences 
among women. Students gain an understanding of and respect for 
differences in human lives as they encounter issues of diversity in the 
classroom: age, ability, class, ethnicity, race, religion, and sexual prefer- 
ence.

Four- Year Program 

This program is composed of a General Military Course (GMC) and a 
Professional Officer Course (POC). The first two years (GMC), normally 
for freshmen and sophomores, give a general introduction to the Air Force 
and the various career fields. Students enrolled in the GMC program incur 
no obligation and may elect to discontinue the program at any time. The 
final two years (POC) concentrate on the development of leadership skills 
and the study of United States defense policy. Students must compete for

Director: Parssinen 

The University Honors Program offers academically-talented students 
special educational and cultural resources within a great metropolitan 
research university. Students combine Honors course work with studies 
in their major to enhance their total educational experience. First- and 
second-year undergraduates broaden their intellectual horizons in spe- 
cial, often interdisciplinary. Honors seminars and Honors versions of 
regular courses, in the arts and sciences. Juniors and seniors may apply 



to departmental or college Honors programs that give them the opportu- 
nity to work with faculty mentors on independent research projects. 
Students, who prefer to propose their own individually-designed research 
programs, may do so. 

Honors programs offer challenging academic experiences characterized 
by small classes, active student participation, and an Honors faculty who 
encourage critical thinking and discussion. Individually guided research, 
field experience, and independent study are also important aspects of 
Honors work. 

The Honors community extends beyond the classroom with an exciting 
range of extracurricular social and educational activities An Honors

Individual Studies Program (IVSP) 

1115 Hornbake Library. 405-9355 

Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Oh 

The Individual Studies Program provides an opportunity for students to 
create and complete individualized majors. To be accepted into the 
program, a student must: 

1 ) have a clearly-defined academic goal which cannot reasonably be 
satisfied in an existing curriculum at College Park: 

2) be able to design, with faculty assistance, a sequence of courses 
and other learning experiences which is judged to have adequate 
substance for the awarding of a degree in the special field of study; 
and 

3) have at least a 2.0 GPA and earn a minimum grade of "C" in 
designated major courses. 

Most IVSP majors are either a form of "area study" utilizing offerings from 
many departments, or a clear combination of two disciplines Many 
include internships or independent study projects in the program. All work 
is done under the supervision of a faculty advisor 

Applicants are required to write a detailed prospectus outlining their 
proposed program of study. They must meet the general education 
requirements according to year of entry. The process of applying often 
involves considerable consultation and several drafts of a prospectus, so 
it should be begun as early as possible. Students may be admitted to the 
Individual Studies Program after completion of 30 college credits and 
must be officially approved by the Individual Studies Faculty Review 
Committee prior to the final 30 credits. Individual Studies programs must 
be approved before students can declare Individual Studies as a major. 

Individual Studies provides three courses specifically for its majors: IVSP 
317, a one-credit course graded Satisfactory/Fail and taken as recom- 
mended by the student's advisor; IVSP 31 8. an independent study course 
which students can use for a variety of out-of-class internship and 
research opportunities (a variable-credit course, it may be taken for a total 
of nine credits towards the degree); and IVSP 420. Senior Paper Project, 
required for all students during the final semester. The project is evaluated 
by three faculty members. 

More information on requirements and procedures is available from the 
Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies. 1115 Hornbake Library.

General Information 

Pre-professional programs are designed to provide the necessary aca- 
demic foundation required tor entrance into professional schools. Some 
require two or three years of pre-professional study before admission to 
professional school. Others normally require completion of a bachelor's 
degree. Five programs, for which completion of a bachelor's degree is 
NOT a normal prerequisite, may be declared as the official undergraduate 
academic major: pre-dental hygiene, pre-medical and research technol- 
ogy, pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, and pre-physical therapy. 

In contrast, seven programs, for which a bachelor's degree IS a normal 
prerequisite, are advisory ONLY and these cannot be declared as the 
official undergraduate academic maior. These include: pre-dentistry. pre- 
law, pre-medicme, pre-optometry, pre-osteopathy, pre-podiatry and pre- 
veterinary medicine. Students interested in such programs may choose 
from a wide variety of academic majors across campus. The pre-profes- 
sional advisor can provide guidance concerning the choice of major. 

Successful completion of a pre-professional program at College Park 
does not guarantee admission to any professional school. Each profes- 
sional school has its own admissions requirements and criteria, which 
may include grade point average in undergraduate courses, scores on 
admissions tests, a personal interview, faculty recommendations, and an 
evaluation from the pre-professional advisor. For admissions require- 
ments, the student is urged to study the catalog of each professional 
school. 

The Health Professions Advising Office offers advising and information on 
health professions. Reading material on health careers, options, 
andalternatives as well as catalogs from many professional schools 
across the country are available. The reading room is open to anyone 
seeking information about health careers. 

Pre-Dental Hygiene 
Advisor: Stewart 

College Park students may prepare themselves not only for entrance into 
the UMAB Dental Hygiene Program but also for entrance into dental 
hygiene programs at other colleges and universities. To do this efficiently, 
students should obtain program information when first entering college so 
that requirements can be taken in normal sequence. Information for the 
University of Maryland Dental Hygiene Program is available at the Health 
Professions Advising Office, 3103 Turner Lab. 

The Dental School of the University of Maryland, located in Baltimore 
(UMAB), offers a baccalaureate degree program in dental hygiene, as well 
as a post-certificate program for registered dental hygienists who have 
completed a two-year accredited dental hygiene program and are inter- 
ested in completing the requirements for a baccalaureate degree. Comple- 
tion of a two-year pre-professional curriculum is required before admis- 
sion to UMAB for the two professional years.

Application and Admission 

High school students who wish to enroll in the pre-dental hygiene 
curriculum at College Park should request applications directly from the 
Admissions Office. The University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. 
It is recommended that those preparing for a baccalaureate degree 
program in dental hygiene pursue an academic program in high school 
which includes biology, chemistry, math, and physics. 

Pre-dental hygiene students should begin the application process for 
professional school in fall of the sophomore year. UMAB applications and 
instructions are available in the Health Professions Advising Office. 
Enrollment as a pre-dental hygiene student or as a registered dental 
hygienist does not guarantee admission to the Dental Hygiene Program 
on the Baltimore City campus (UMAB).

Pre-Dentistry 

Advisor: Bradley 

The pre-professional program for pre-dental students is a program of 
advising for students preparing to apply to dental school. The advice is 
based on requirements and recommendations of American dental schools 
and the requirements for a baccalaureate degree at College Park. 

The recommendations made during advising are meant to prepare the 
student to take the Dental Admissions Test (DAT) in the spring of the junior 
year. Application to dental school is made during the summer-fall of the 
senior year. In addition to faculty letters of recommendation, most admis- 
sions committees request or require an evaluation from the student's pre- 
dental advisor. It is important, therefore, for the student to contact the pre- 
dental advisor early in the academic career and to become familiar with 
the proper procedures necessary in the evaluation and application pro- 
cess. 

For more information on the pre-dental advising program, contact the Pre- 
dental Advisor, 3103 Turner Laboratory, University of Maryland, College 
Park, MD 20742, (301) 405-2793. 

There are two ways to prepare for admission to dental school: a four-year 
program is preferable, but a three-year program is possible. 

Four-Year Baccalaureate Program 

Most pre-dental students at College Park complete a four-year under- 
graduate degree prior to entrance into dental school. Students are 
encouraged to pursue a diversified curriculum, balancing humanities 
courses with science and mathematics courses. No specific major is 
required, favored, or preferred by dental school admissions committees. 

The four-year student will plan an undergraduate experience which 
includes courses to satisfy major and supporting area requirements, 
general education requirements, and the dental school admission re- 
quirements. The student's academic advisor will advise about the first two 
topics, while the Pre-dental Advisor will advise about dental school 
admission requirements. 

Although specific admission requirements vary somewhat from dental 
school to dental school, the undergraduate courses which constitute the 
basic admission requirements and which prepare the student for the DAT 
are the following: 

Semester

PHYS 121, 122 or PHYS 141, 142— Physics 4, 4 

Biology, minimum* 8 

'Although the minimum biology requirement is eight credits, the success- 
ful applicant will have more, including advanced training in biological 
sciences at the 300 to 400 level. BOTN 1 00, BIOL 1 01 and 1 24, and MICB 
100 should not be taken to meet this requirement.

Three Year Arts-Dentistry Degree Program 

Students whose performance during the first two years is exceptional may 
apply to the University of Maryland School of Dentistry at the beginning of 
their third year, for entry after three years of college work. By the end of 
the third year the student must have earned 90 academic credits, 
exclusive of physical education, the last 30 of which must have been 
earned at the University of Maryland at College Park. Within the 90 credits 
the student must have completed all the requirements listed below.

Pre-Law 

1117Hornbake Library, 314-8418 
Advisor: Ulysses Connor, J.D. 

Although some law schools will consider only applicants with a B.A. or B.S. 
degree, others will accept applicants who have successfully completed a 
three-year program of academic work. Most law schools do not prescribe 
specific courses which a student must present for admission, but do 
require that the student follow one of the standard programs offered by the 
undergraduate college. Many law schools require that the applicant take 
the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), preferably in July or October of 
the academic year preceding entry into professional school. 

Four-Year Program 

The student who plans to complete the requirements for the B.A. or B.S. 
degree before entering law school should select a major field of concen- 
tration. A student's choice can be guided by the need to develop some of 
the essential skills needed for the law profession, namely, clear and 
imaginative thinking, accurate and perceptive reading, and literate ex- 
pression. 

Three- Year Arts-Law Program 

Although some law schools will consider only applicants with a B.A. or B.S. 
degree, others will accept applicants who have successfully completed a 
three-year program of academic work. Students planning to enter law 
school at the end of the third year should complete the general education 
requirements. By the end of the junior year, the student will complete the 
requirements for a "minor" (eighteen semester hours in one department, 
six hours being at the 300-400 level). The program during the first three 
years should include all of the basic courses required for a degree 
(including the eighteen-hour "minor" course program) and all University 
requirements. The academic courses must total ninety hours, and must be 
passed with a minimum average of 2.0. To be acceptable to law schools, 
however, students in virtually all cases must have a considerably higher 
average. 

Students with exceptional records who are accepted to the School of Law 
of the University of Maryland under the arts-law program may receive a 
B.A. degree (arts-law) after satisfactory completion of the first year of law 
school, upon recommendation by the dean of the University of Maryland 
Law School and approval by College Park. The degree is awarded in 
August following the first year of law school (or after thirty credit hours are 
completed). 

For additional information, contact the Pre-law Advisor, 1117 Hombake 
Library. (301)314-8418. 

Pre-Medical and Research Technology 

Advisor: Stewart 

College Park students may prepare themselves not only for entrance into 
the UMAB Medical and Research Technology Program but also for 
entrance into clinical laboratory science programs at other colleges and 
universities. To do this efficiently, students should obtain program infor- 
mation when first entering college so that requirements can be taken in 
normal sequence. Information for the University of Maryland Program is 
available at the Health Professions Advising Office, 3103 Turner Labora- 
tory. 

A Bachelor of Science degree in Medical and Research Technology is 
offered through the Medical and Research Technology Department of the 
University of Maryland Medical School, located in Baltimore (UMAB).

Pre-Medicine 

Advisor: Bradley 

The pre-professional program for pre-medical students is a program of 
advising for students preparing to apply to medical school The advice is 
based on requirements and recommendations of American medical 
schools and the requirements for a baccalaureate degree at College Park 
The pre-medical advisor in the Health Professions Advising Office is 
prepared to assist students in setting career objectives, selecting under- 
graduate coursework to meet the admissions criteria of the professional 
schools, and in all phases of the application process itself. 

The recommendations made during advising are meant to prepare the 
student to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) in the spnng 
of the junior year. Application to medical school is made during the 
summer-fall of the senior year. Medical admissions committees generally 
request or require an evaluation from the student's pre-medical advisor. 
It is important, therefore, for the student to contact the pre-medical advisor 
early in the academic career and to become familiar with the proper 
procedures necessary in the evaluation and application process. 

For more information on the pre-medical advising program, contact the 
Pre-medical Advisor, 3103 Turner Laboratory, The University of Mary- 
land, College Park, MD 20742. (301) 405-2793. 

There are two ways to prepare for admission to medical school: a four- 
year program is preferable, but a three-year program is possible. 

Four-Year Baccalaureate Program 

Most pre-medical students at College Park complete a four-year under- 
graduate degree prior to entrance into medical school Students are 
encouraged to pursue a diversified curnculum, balancing humanities 
courses with science and mathematics courses No specific maior is 
required, favored, or preferred by medical school admissions committees

Pre-Physical Therapy 

Advisor: Stewart 

College Park students may prepare themselves not only for entrance into 
University of Maryland physical therapy programs but also for entrance 
into physical therapy programs at other colleges and universities. To do 
this efficiently, students should obtain program information when first 
entering college so that requirements can be taken in normal sequence. 
Information for the University of Maryland programs is available at the 
Health Professions Advising Office. 3103 Turner Laboratory. Bulletins 
from other colleges may be seen at the same location. 

The University of Maryland offers two programs in physical therapy One 
is an entry-level masters (MPT) program at the Baltimore City Campus 
(UMAB), and the other is a BS program at the Eastern Shore Campus 
(UMES). Completion of a three-year pre-professional curriculum is re- 
quired before admission to UMAB for the three professional years of the 
MPT program, which also include some summer coursework. At UMES 
two pre-professional years of coursework are required before admission 
to the two professional years. 

Application and Admission 

Applicants for the pre-physical therapy program at College Park must 
meet all of that institution's admission requirements. While in high school 
students should pursue a college preparatory program. Subjects specifi- 
cally recommended are biology, chemistry, physics, and at least three 
units of college preparatory mathematics. 

Pre-physical therapy students should begin the application process for 
professional school about ten months prior to the expected data of 
enrollment in professional school. UMAB or UMES applications and 
instructions are available in the Health Professions Advising Office 
Applications for other programs must be obtained individually from the 
respective colleges. 

Enrollment as a pre-physical therapy student does not guarantee admis- 
sion to the physical therapy programs at either UMAB or UMES. In view 
of the heavy competition for admission, all applicants are encouraged to 
apply to several programs. This entails looking at schools in other states 
and even other geographic regions.
