GOALS 



An education at the University of 
Maryland at College Park strives 
to cultivate intellect by teaching 
students to extend principles and 
ideas to new situations and to new 
groups of people. It aims to 
provide students with a sense of 
identity and purpose, a concern 
for others, a sense of responsibil- 
ity for the quality of life around 
them, a continuing eagerness for 
know ledge and understanding, 
and a foundation for a lifetime of 
personal enrichment. It enlivens 
students to enlarge the common 
understanding, to develop humane 
values, to celebrate tolerance and 
fairness, to contribute to the social 
conscience, to monitor and assess 
private and collective assump- 
tions, and to recognize the glory, 
tragedy, and humor of the human 
condition. Specifically, under- 
graduate education at College 
Park seeks to enable students to 
develop and expand their use of 
basic academic and intellectual 
tools. Students are educated to be 
able to read with perception and 
pleasure, write and speak with 
clarity and verve, handle numbers 
and computation proficiently, 
reason mathematically, generate 
clear questions and find probable 
arguments, reach substantiated 
conclusions, and accept ambigu- 
ity. Students also study in depth 
and acquire a substantial compe- 
tence in a coherent academic 
discipline. A College Park 
education helps students to 
become aw are of the varieiv' of 
ways of know ing. the complexity 
of being human, and to understand 
their place in histop. and in the 
contemporary worid. Students 
learn to analyze and appreciate 
artistic creations, to identif)' and 
evaluate moral questions, to 
synthesize and integrate knowl- 
edge, and to become intellectu- 
ally fiexible. inventive, and 
creative. 



From: Promises to Keep: The Colleae Park Plan for Undergraduate Education, 
Approved by the Campus Senate March. 1988. 



HISTORY 




In 1888, the campus 
consisted of an ad- 
ministration build- 
ing, a classroom 
(Hiding, and a labo- 
ratory. As the Mary- 
land Agricultural 
College, it became 
one of the nation's 
first land-grant insti- 
tutions in 1865. 



In 1859, on the site now occupied 
by Morrill Hall, Charles Benedict 
Calvert, a wealthy planter and 
later congressman from 
Riverdale, established the 
Maryland Agricultural College. 
Its purpose was to educate the 
sons of Maryland farmers and to 
cultivate the free flow of ideas. 
After the Civil War, the College 
became one of the nation's first 
land-grant colleges under the 
Morrill Act of 1867, and by 1900, 
had begun to bring prosperity to 
the state through its agricultural 
outreach programs. 
As it did so, it changed the state 
and was itself transformed. By 
the early twentieth century, the 
College had expanded its offer- 
ings into engineering, business, 
and the liberal arts Women were 
admitted as students in 1912; by 
1929, they numbered over 300, 
had graduated from every college 
in what now was a university, 
and had become active partici- 
pants in all aspects of campus 
life. Shortly before World War I, 
graduate work began. In 1920, 
the college merged with the long- 
established professional schools 
in Baltimore, and the Maryland 
Agricultural College changed its 
name to the University of 
Maryland. 

Along with much of American 
society, the university was fur- 
ther transformed by World War 
II. The university revised its cur- 
riculum to provide a strong 
foundation in the liberal arts and 
sciences and reshaped its offer- 
ings in advanced studies to create 
a series of "majors" that would 
serve the emerging needs of 




industry, government, and soci- 
ety tor highiv-educated citizens. 
However, like the state of which 
it was a part, the University of 
Maryland was segregated by 
race, and barred African- 
Americans from attending 
College Park Beginning in the 
post-war period, Maryland's 
black citizens asserted their right 
to attend the state's premier pub- 
lic university with ever greater 
force and power In 1950, a suc- 
cessful lawsuit required the uni- 
versity to allow a young black 
man, Parrin Mitchell of 
Baltimore, to attend graduate 
classes at College I'ark In the 
following year, Hiram Whittle, 
another Baltimorean, became the 
first African-American under- 
graduate student admitted to this 
institution. Still, it was not until 
the 1954 landmark Supreme 
Court ruling in Brown v. Board 
of Education that the University 
of Maryland Board of Regents 
agreed to accept all qualified stu- 
dents without regard to race. 
Now, the once segregated college 
has become a multi-cultural, 
international university 
The evolution of College Park 
mirrored the pattern of social 
change in other ways as well. In 
the 1960s, students here as else- 
where sought more opportunities 
for self-expression as they joined 
in the movement to create an 
egalitarian society. Their con- 
cerns in part led to the expansion 
of curriculum offerings into new 
areas, such as Afro-American 
Studies, Women's Studies, and 
Urban Studies. A wider choice of 
electives encouraged students to 
explore various disciplines; the 
Individual Studies Program 



developed to accommodate stu- 
dents who wanted to pursue 
cross-disciplinary studies; teacher 
evaluations encouraged students 
to critique the quality of class- 
mom instruction, and periodic 
reviews of programs and admin- 
istrators became standard. 
In 1988, the General Assembly of 
Maryland in an historic act desig- 
nated the University of Maryland 
at College Park as the flagship 
institution for the newly-expand- 
ed University of Maryland 
System. As well as pursuing a 
serious research mission and con- 
tinuing its high level of service to 
the state, the University rededi- 
cated itself to providing the high- 
est quality graduate and under- 
graduate education Increased 
undergraduate opportunities for 
research and individual study 
and the expansion of the 
University Honors Program, the 
creation of CORE, the establish- 
ment of Center for Teaching 
Excellence, the launching of 
College Park Scholars all 
affirmed the legislature's desig- 
nation of flagship. 
After almost a century and a half, 
the University of Maryland at 
College Park seems to bear little 
resemblance to the Maryland 
Agricultural College. Yet, at 
heart, it remains the same; an 
engine of economic growth, to be 
sure; a great research university, 
yes; a source of enlightenment for 
the citizens of the state and the 
world, of course. But, above all, 
this is a place where the life of 
the mind remains primary, and 
where nothing is more valued 
than the open exploration and 
dissemination of both new 
old ideas. 




VBiner 




The university's 
dose inlis to Balti- 
more, Aniupolis, 
and Washington, 
D.C. provide excit- 
ing opportunities 
for internships, 
research, cultural 
ll activities, and 
recreation.

Opportunities for conducting 
research abound at the University 
of Maryland at College Park and in 
the surrounding area, both for fac- 
ulty to advance their own expertise 
and bring their insights with them 
into the classroom, and for students 
to begin their exploration of their 
special interests with practical expe- 
rience. On campus, special facilities 
and a number of organized research 
centers, bureaus, and institutes pro- 
mote the acquisition and analysis of 
new knowledge in the arts, sciences, 
and applied fields. 
The university's unique location — 
just 10 miles from downtown 
Washington D.C. and approximate- 
ly 30 miles from both Baltimore and 
Annapolis — enhances the research 
of its faculty and students by pro- 
viding access to some of the finest 
libraries and research centers in the 
country including the Library of 
Congress, Folger Shakespeare 
Library, National Archives, 
National Library of Medicine, and 
National Agricultural Library. In 
the Baltimore area are the Enoch 
Pratt Free Library and the Maryland 
Historical Association Library. The 
state capital at Annapolis houses 
the Maryland Hall of Records. 
In recent years, several research 
opportunities have been created 
specifically for undergraduate stu- 
dents. As early as the second semes- 
ter of freshman year, students are 
eligible to participate in the 
Undergraduate Research Assistant 
Program. As research assistants, 
students develop close intellectual 
relationships with faculty mentors 
and collaborate on faculty research 
projects. The Summer 
Undergraduate Research Program, 
for students who have reached 
sophomore standing, and whose 
ethnicities are underrepresented in 
their disciplines of study, provides 



^ Undergraduate students are encour- 
aged to begin their own explorations 
through access to state of the art 
facilities and resources. 



inspiration and incentive to con- 
tinue stiidv through at least the 
Master's level Mulfidisciplinary 
Senior Summer Scholarship grants 
enable students between the 
junior and senior years to spend a 
summer working closclv with fac- 
ulty mentors on scholarly, 
research, or artistic projects while 
earning academic credit. 
Additional, discipline-specific 
research opportunities are avail- 
able off-campus. UMCP is leading 
a cooperative excavation of tlie 
ruined city of Caesarca Maritima 
in Israel, where Pontius Pilate 
lived while serving as Roman 
governor of J udea. Elsewhere, 
students participate in archeologi- 
cal digs at Cape May and in 
Historic Annapolis Aided by the 
Maryland Sea Grant, College Park 
zoologists and microbiologists 
study the fisheries of the 
Chesapeake Bay. 

Research internships are available 
through academic departments 
and Experiential Learning 
Programs The sites include fed- 
eral agencies and private organi- 
zations such as the National 
Zoological Park, Congressional 
Arts Caucus, Smithsonian 
Institution, Women's Legal 
Defense Fund, the National 
Institutes of Health, National 
Archives, and the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture. 
Students may work in Annapolis 
or Capitol Hill through the 
Maryland Legislative Internships. 



A major research 
university attracts 
top faculty who bring 
their research inter- 
ests and insights to 
the classroom.

ADMISSION 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 
cosmopolitan student body and each year offers admission to a number of 
promising students from other states and jurisdictions. Currently, fifty 
states, the District of Columbia, two territories, and 100 foreign countries 
are represented in the undergraduate population. Admission policies 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. 

Each applicant's previous academic achievement is reviewed according to 
the information available on the student's high school transcript. In some 
cases mid-year grades for the senior year also will be considered. 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 the 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 may 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 or by the high school. 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. The reporting code for the 
University of Maryland at College Park is 1746 for applicants submitting the 
ACT, and is 5814 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 Sen/ice, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 



Additional Criteria 

While standardized test scores and grade-point averages play an important 
role in the admission process, they are not the sole factors in determining 
a candidate's admissibility. Students are asked to submit a 
recommendation from their school counselor on the form provided in the 
application. A list of cocurricular activities in high school is requested on 
the application. An optional essay and additional letters of recommendation 
also will be considered. The Admission Commrttee 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 Undergraduate 
Admission, Mitchell Building, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 
20742-5235, or by calling (301) 314-8385. 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. 

Fail Semester Freshman Admission 

The University of Maryland at College Park strongly urges that all applicants 
apply early to assure consideration for admission. Because of space 
limitations, the institution 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. 

The University of Maryland at College Park operates according to a modified 
rolling admission plan. The admission committee begins reviewing 
applications and releasing decisions in November, with most decisions 
released by the end of March. Some applicants may be asked to submit 
senior mid-year grades before a final decision may be made. The priority 
application deadline is December 1, and all qualified students who 
complete an application for admission by this date will be considered for 
merit-based scholarships. Most of the new first-year class is filled by the 
end of March, and subsequent applications are considered on a space- 
available basis. The following calendar describes the admission process for 
Fall semester applicants: 

November Admission committee begins to review applications 

and release decisions. 

December 1 Priority deadline for admission. Qualified students 

who apply by this date will be considered for merit- 
based scholarships. Admission committee begins to

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 
opportunity 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-credit-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 preceding their 
junior or senior year. They must file a regular application for 
undergraduate admission, including an official high school 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 College Park. 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, 
scholarships 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 academic 
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. Students admitted under this category are usually 
limited to six credits of enrollment per semester. 

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 CORE program, and all curriculum requirements of 
the major program and the degree-granting 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 documented learning disabilities, 
please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission. 

High School Equivalence Examination (GEO) 

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 (GEO) 
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 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 on the 
following page. Students should arrange to have their scores sent directly 
to the University of Maryland at College Park from the Educational Testing 
Sen/ice; the code is 5814. Students should also inform their advisors at 
Orientation that they anticipate receiving AP credit, because this 
information may affect their placement in subject-matter courses. 

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 AP credit for an 
equivalent course taken 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 ongoing 
departmental reevaluation. All departments 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. 



International Baccalaureate Examination 
Credit Awards 

Beginning in the fall 1994 semester, UMCP will accept International 
Baccalaureate Examination Credit, according to the table below. The review 
process for awarding credit and determining course equivalencies had not 
been completed at the time this catalog went to press. Interested 
students should call the Office of Undergraduate Admission for updated 
information, 301-314-8385. 

N.B.: Credit awards and course equivalencies are subject to change.

Admission to Limited-Enrollment Programs 
(LEP) 

Certain colleges, schools, and departments within the universrty have taken 
steps to limit their enrollment in order to maintain quality programs. For the 
1993-94 academic year, these included: School of Architecture; College of 
Business and Management; College of Engineering; Department of 
Government and Politics; College of Journalism; Department of Psychology; 
Department of Special Education; and all teacher education majors. LEP 
programs are continually reviewed. Students should check with the 
appropriate college assistant dean for updated information. 

Freshmen: Admission for new freshmen to Limited-Enrollment Programs is 
determined on a space-available basis. Most freshmen will gain entrance 
to the major of their choice. Because space may be limited for 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 ot appropriate 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 complete 
56 credits at College Park. See the following section on LEP transfer 
admission and the LEP program descnptions for further details about this 
option. 

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 semester. 
Students must complete the gateway requirements by the semester in 
which they complete 56 credits. Specific requirements for each of the 
limited-enrollment programs may be found in the descriptions of academic 
majors elsewhere in this catalog. 

Transfer students who are not directly admissible to an LEP upon 
application to the university will be assigned to an alternate program. 
Those 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 admitted to an interim program for one semester in 
which they will be advised regarding their qualifications for the LEP and, in 
some cases, the need to choose another major. 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) 
314-8385 for further information. 



Preprofessional Programs and Options 

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

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

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 Universrty of 
Maryland at College Park. Please address correspondence to the academic 
advisor of the specific preprofessional program to which you are applying; 
for example. Advisor for Pre-Nursing Program, 3103 Turner Laboratory, 
University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. 



Special Applicants 

Golden Identification Card Program 

The University of Maryland at College Park participates in the University of 
Maryland's Golden Identification Card Program. The institution will make 
available courses and various services to persons who are 60 years of age 
or older, who are legal residents of the State of Maryland, and who are 
retired (not engaged in gainful employment for more than 20 hours per 
week). When persons eligible for this program are admitted to the 
university, they register on a space-available basis for credit courses as 
regular or special students in any session, and receive a Golden 
Identification card. Golden ID students must meet all course pre-requisite 
and co-requisite requirements. Tuition is waived for these courses, 
although Golden ID students pay part-time student fees as other students 
do. Golden ID students may register for a maximum of three courses per 
term. Golden ID students are not eligible for Consortium courses. The 
Golden Identification Card will entitle eligible persons to certain academic 



6 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



services, including the use of the libraries and tne shuttle bus service. 
Such sen/ices will be available during any session only to persons who 
have registered for one or more courses for that semester. Golden ID 
students also have the opportunity to become involved with the Golden ID 
Student Association which provides cultural and social events, course 
recommendations, and peer advising. Additional information may be 
obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Admission, Mitchell Building, 
(301) 314-8385, or the Career Center, 0119 Hombake Library, 405-3956. 

Multi-Ethnic Students 

In keeping with the University Affirmative Action Program, special 
consideration will be given to multi-ethnic students who demonstrate the 
potential for academic success. Multi-ethnic students are urged to contact 
both an admission counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admission and 
the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Education. 1101 Hombake Library. (301) 
405-5616. 

Non-Degree (Special) Students 

Applicants who qualrfy for admission but do not desire to work toward a 
baccalaureate degree may be admitted as norvdegree-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-baccaiaureate students may 
enroll in undergraduate courses for which they possess the necessary 
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 limitatiori, 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 the appropriate dean to have 
a number of grades and credits from courses previously taken at the 
University of Maryland at College Park removed from the calculation of their 
cumulative grade-point averages and from the credits applied toward 
graduation requirements. For more information, consult the chapter on 
Academic Regulations and Requirements. 



INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADMISSION 

The Unrversity 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, throughout 
their secondary school and university level work, marks or examination 
results considered to be "very good" to "excellent" are those who are most 
likely to succeed at our institution. Admission for international students is 
competitrve and offered only to those who are considered by the university 
to be better than average in their ovm educational setting. Students also 
have to demonstrate, in their secondary level studies, that they have 
successfully completed a diversity of subjects representing language, 
mathematics, physical or biological science and social sciences. Because 
of the keen competition at the University of Maryland, we suggest 
applicants apply early. 

Those who will hold 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". Non-immigrants who have completed 
four years of U.S. secondary education (grades 9 through 12) 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 cred'rt 
must also meet the freshman admission requirements for international 
applicants. 

International students applying for admission to undergraduate programs at 
the University of Maryland at College Park must submit: 1) an application 
and fee for admission; 2) copies of official secondary school records, 
including any secondary external examinations, such as the 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 1-20 form from the office of International 
Education Services (lES); this form is needed to secure, transfer, and 
extend the Student visa after applicants have certified their financial 
support and submitted evidence of satisfactory English proficiency to the 
lES office, 

Intemational 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 intemational 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 or a score 
of 350 or higher on the SAT verbal section. 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 rf 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 Admission for 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 
admissible 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 

A student who has attended any regionally accredited institution of higher 
education following graduation from high school and attempted twelve or 
more credits will be considered for admission as a transfer student. 
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. In calculating eligibility, the university win 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 computed. To be considered, 
course work must have been completed at a regionally accredited college 
or university. All students with grade-point averages below 3.0 will be 
considered on a space-available basis. These requirements apply to all 
transfer Candidates, including those seeking to transfer from another 
institution in the University of Maryland System. In accordance with 
Maryland Higher Education Commission transfer policies, applicants from 
Maryland community colleges are, in some instances, given special 
consideration, and, when qualified, may be admitted with a cumulative 
grade-point average of 2.0 or higher. Students who were not admissible as 
high school seniors must complete at least 28 semester hours with the 
grade-point average as stated above. 

Optimal Application Deadlines 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 7 

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 may be applied 
towards the degree. Students are required to complete at least their final 
30 credits on the College Park campus to earn a degree.

Transfer 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 applicants for a particular course of study at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. Applicants who take appropriate 
courses specified in the articulated program and earn acceptable grades 
are 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 transfer of courses by 
following articulated programs. 

General Transfer Information 

Admitted students will receive a preliminary review of transfer credit within 
two weeks after the letter of admission. An official review of transfer credit 
occurs thereafter, with final determination of applicability made bv an 



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 institutions in 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 transcripts 
sent from the institution at which the credit was completed. Students who 
have earned credit through Advanced Placement (AP), International 
Baccalaureate, 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.

Statement on Transfer of Course Credit 

UMCP welcomes transfer students and has transfer agreements 
(sometimes referred to as "articulation" agreements) to encourage and aid 
students in their efforts to take appropriate courses prior to transfer. Each 
course is evaluated individually for students seeking to transfer to UMCP. 
Credit is granted for courses that are applicable to a Bachelor of Arts or 
Bachelor of Science degree, and for which a grade of C or above was 
earned. Courses completed at Maryland public two- or four-year institutions 
may transfer with grades of D or above provided that course content is 
appropriate for our academic programs. 

Maxbnuin Number of Transfer Credits Accepted 

UMCP has direct transfer agreements with all Maryland community 
colleges, as well as other junior and community colleges outside of the 
state. UMCP will accept for transfer a maximum of 60 credits from a two- 
year program for courses in which a grade of C or above was earned, and 
which are appropriate to an approved curriculum at this institution. See the 
above paragraph for required course grades. 

Maximum Number of Credits Allowed for Non-tradltlonal Learning 

Students who have acquired college-level learning through work or other 
non-collegiate activities may wish to translate their experience into credits 
at College Park by validation through the national CLEP examination 
(College-Level Examination Program) or credit-by-examination administered 
by academic departments. College Park will accept a maximum of 30 hours 
of credit through examination. 

Minimum Number of Credits Required Through Classroom Instruction In 
the Major Field and for the Degree 

UMCP requires a minimum of 120 semester hours of credit for an 
undergraduate degree; some programs require more. Regardless of the 
total number of transfer credits, students must complete at least their last 
30 credits at UMCP. 

Statement on Transfer of General Education Requirements 

As directed by the Maryland Higher Education Commission Transfer Policy, 
transferable courses taken in fulfillment of general education requirements 
at a Maryland Community College will be applied toward College Park's 
CORE requirements. Since College Park requires more general education 
credit than do the Maryland community colleges, additional courses may 
need to be taken to fulfill our lower division general education program. 
Careful planning with an academic advisor will ensure that students take 
appropriate credit and maximize their credit transfer. The total number of 
general education credits for a Maryland Community College transfer 
student will not exceed that required of native students. 



iVIARYLAND HIGHER EDUCATION 
COMMISSION TRANSFER POLICIES 

Authorization 

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

Appllcabiiity of Policies 

These transfer policies and procedures apply to admission, credit transfer, 
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, incorporates 
the recommended sequence of courses which a student takes at a 
community college which will constitute the first two years of a 
baccalaureate degree program at a Maryland public institution of higher 
education. 

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

Successful and harmonious articulation depends upon 

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

• the establishment of clear and equitable policies to assure optimum 
accessibility for transfer students with minimal loss of credits and 
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 performance — 
is best served by the open exchange of current information about 



Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 9 



programs, and is best protected by a clear transfer policy pertaining to the 
public segments of higher education in Maryland. 

The state's interests are similarly served through such a policy, which 
results in the optimal use of its higher education resources by reducing the 
costly duplication that results in the needless waste of the valuable time 
and effort of Maryland students, faculty, and administration. Institutional 
interests and missions are also protected by this systematic approach, 
which permits them to incorporate into their academic planning more 
accurate projections about the programmatic backgrounds of transferring 
students. 

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

• Define broad areas of agreement among the public two-year and 
four-year Institutions of higher education pertaining to facilitating the 
transfer of students within these segments: 

• Provide a mechanism for continuous evaluation of programs, 
policies, procedures, and relationships affecting transfer of 
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. POUCIES 

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

A. Admission of Transfer Students 

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

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

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

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

c. The Associate 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 education 
requirements at the receiving institution exceed those of the 
sending institution, the transfer student will be required to take 
no more than the same number of lower division general 
education credits than those required of the native student. 

d. The determination of the major program requirements for a 
baccalaureate degree, including courses in the major taken in 
the lower division, shall be the responsibility of the faculty of the 
institution awarding the degree. The receiving institution may set 
major requirements which 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 community 
college to assure the transferability of credits into that program. 

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



a. Students from Maryland community colleges who were 
admissible 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. If the student has attended more than one institution, the 
cumulative GPA for admission purposes will be computed on 
grades received in courses at all institutions attended. 

d. Transferable courses defined as meeting the general education 
requirements at the sending institution shall be applicable to the 
general education requirements of the receiving institution. 

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 
institution, 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 insfrtution 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 
validation 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 



10 Admission Requirements and Application Procedures 



for the upper division course. 

C. Program Articulation 

Recommended transfer programs will be developed through 
consultation between the two institutions that allow students 
aspiring to the baccalaureate degree to plan their programs. These 
programs 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. POUCIES TO PROMOTE THE ACADEMIC SUCCESS AND GENERAL 
WELL-BEING OF TRANSFER STUDENTS 

A. By the Sending Institutions: 

1. Students who enroll at Maryland community colleges shall be 
encouraged to complete the Associate degree or to complete 56 
hours in a recommended transfer program which includes both 
general education courses and courses applicable toward the 
program at the receiving institution. 

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

3. Sending institutions shall provide to community college students 
information about the specific transferability of courses at four- 
year colleges. 

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

institution with all tfie required documents provided the student 
has met all requirements of the sending institution for transfer. 

B. By the Receiving Institutions: 

1. Admission requirements and curriculum prerequisites shall be 
stated explicitly in institutional publications. 

2. Transfer students from newly established public colleges which 
are functioning with the approval of the Maryland Higher 
Education Commission shall be admitted on the same basis as 
applicants from regionally accredited colleges. 

3. The receiving institution shall evaluate the transcripts of degree 
seeking transfer students as expeditiously as possible, and 
shall notify students of the results no later than at the 
completion of the students' first semester of enrollment at the 
receiving insfrtution. Students shall be informed both of which 
courses are acceptable for transfer credit and which of those are 
applicable to the student's intended program of study. 

4. Transfer students shall be given the option of satisfying 
institutional graduation requirements which were in effect at the 
receiving institution at the time they enrolled as freshmen at the 
sending institution. In the case of major requirements, the 
transfer student has the option of satisfying the major 
requirements in effect at the time when the student was 
identifiable as pursuing the recommended transfer program at 
the sending institution. These conditions are applicable to the 
student who has t)een continuously enrolled at the community 
college by completing a minimum of 12 hours within the 
calendar year. 

III. MAINTAINING PROGRAMMATIC CURRENCY. STUDENT APPEALS, 
AND PERIODIC REVIEW 

A. Programmatic Currency: 

. 1. Receiving institutions shall provide to the community college 
current and accurate information on recommended transfer 
programs and the transferability status of courses. Community 
college students shall have access to this information.

community college whenever new baccalaureate programs are 
approved by the degree-granting institution. 

3. When considering curricular changes, institutions shall notify 



each other of the proposed changes that might affect transfer 
students. An appropriate mechanism shall be created to ensure 
that both two and four year public colleges provide Input or 
comments to the institution proposing the change. Sufficient 
lead time shall be provided to effect the change with minimum 
disruption. Transfer students shall not be required to repeat 
equivalent coursework successfully completed at the community 
college. 

B. Appeal Process: 

1. Notification of denial of transfer credit by the receiving institution 

A receiving institution must inform a transfer student in writing of 
the denial of transfer credit not later than mid-semester of the 
transfer student's first semester provided that all official 
transcripts have been received at least 15 working days before 
mid-semester. If transcripts are submitted after 15 working 
days before mid-semester of the student's first semester, the 
receiving institution must inform the student of credit denied 
within 20 working days of receipt of the official transcript. 

A statement of the student's right to appeal the denial and a 
notification that this appeal process is available in the 
institution's catalog shall accompany the notification of denial of 
transfer credit. 

2. Student appeal to receiving institution 

If a student believes she/he has been denied transfer credits in 
violation of the State Student Transfer Policy, she/he must 
initiate an appeal by contacting the receiving institution's 
Transfer Coordinator or other responsible official of the receiving 
institution within 20 working days (4 weeks) of receiving notice 
of the denial of credit. The receiving institution shall inform the 
student of this time limitation at the same time as the transfer 
of credit is denied. 

3. Response by receiving institution

the receiving institution, the student may request the sending 
institution to intercede on his/her behalf by contacting the 
Transfer Coordinator of the sending institution. The student 
must make this appeal to the sending institution within 10 
working days {2 weeks) of having receiving the decision of the 
receiving institution. 

5. Consultation between sending and receiving institution 

Representatives of the two institutions shall have 15 working 
days (3 weeks) to resolve the issues involved in the appeal. The 
sending institution will inform the student of the result of the 
consultation. 

6. Appeal to the Student Transfer Advisory Committee 

If the transfer of credit is still denied after consultations 
between the sending and receiving institutions, and the sending 
institution considers the student's appeal to have sufficient 
merit, the sending institution may appeal in writing to the 
Secretary of Higher Education to request that the Student 
Transfer Advisory Committee review the student's appeal and 
make a ruling on the merit of the appeal. The sending 
institution must make this appeal to the Secretary within 10 
working days (2 weeks) of having informed the student of the 
result of the consultation between the two institutions. 

In the absence of an appeal to the Secretary by the sending 
institution, if the credit is still denied, the student may appeal in

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 longitudinal 
reports on the subsequent academic success of enrolled 
transfer students, including graduation rates, by major subject 
areas. Comparable information on the progress of native 
students 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

RESIDENCY INFORMATION 

Determination of In-State Status for Admission, Tuition, and Charge 
Differential Purposes: Sea 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 determination 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 Admission. The deadline for 
meeting all requirements for in-state status and for submitting all 
documents for reclassification is the last day of late registration for the 
semester if the student wishes to be classified as an in-state student. 

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

Petitions, related documents and questions concerning the policy of the 
University of Maryland for the determination of in-state status should be 
directed to the Campus Classification Office, 0405B Marie Mount Hall, 
University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742, (301) 405-2030. 

Students classified as in-state for admission, tuition, and charge- 
differential purposes are responsible for notifying the office of 
Undergraduate Admission in writing within fifteen days of any change in 
their circumstances that might in any way affect their classification at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. 

The written notice of change in circumstances or questions^concerning the 
policy of the University of Maryland for the determination of in-state status 
should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admission, Ground Floor, 
Mitchell Building.

FEES AND EXPENSES 

student Accounts Offlce 

1135 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 
drfficulties can be avoided rf students carefully follow published procedures 
and notify the appropriate ofrice(s) of any changes that might affect their 
financial obligation to the university. This includes notifying the Bursar's 
Office 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 may be available, albeit somewhat more 
expensive. Information regarding these plans is available by calling 1-800- 
722-4867. 

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 service charges, are paid in full. 

Payment for past due balances and current semester fees is 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 
responsibilrty 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 responsibilrty 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 and scholarships will be posted to the student's account. 
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 
$10.00 or 5%, whichever is higher, will be assessed in addrtion to payment 
for the total past due amount. An additional 1.5% 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 advance register for subsequent 
semesters 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 Collections 
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 Centra! 
Collections Unit to intercept state income tax refunds for individuals witti 
delinquent accounts, and that CCU is authorized to notify the National 
Credit Bureau of the delinquency at the time the account is referred to it for 
collection. 

All Accounts Due from Students, Faculty, Staff, NorvStudents, etc., are 
Included wKhln these guidelines. 

State Central Collection Unit costs incurred in collecting delinquent 
accounts will be charged to the student. The minimum collection fee is 17% 
plus attomey 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 ordinarily 
will be announced in advance, the university reserves the right to make 
such changes wrthout prior announcement.

transfer is made. When a check is returned unpaid due to an error made by 
the student's bank, the student must obtain a letter from the branch 
manager of the bank or a person of equivalent status admitting the error. 
This letter must be submitted to the Office of the Bursar to have the 
service charge waived. 

Overdue Library Charges: For items from the library's, main circulating 
collections, charges are 35 cents per day per item, and recalled item fines 
are $1.50 per day. If an item is lost or mutilated, the borrower is charged 
the estimated cost of the item plus a processing fee to cover acquisition 
and cataloging costs. Different fine rates may apply for other library 
collections, such as reserve collections. 

Maryland English Institute Fee: Semi-intensive, $1,644.00. Intensive. 
$3,288.00. Students enrolled with the Maiyland English Institute pay this 
fee in support of the institute. Students enrolled in the semi-intensive 
program may also enroll for regular academic courses and pay the tuition 
and fees associated with those offerings. The program also offers a non- 
credit course in English Pronunciation for $278.00. 

Property Damage Charge: Students will be charged for damage to property 
or equipment. Where responsibility for the damage can be fixed, the 
individual student will be billed for it; where responsibility cannot be fixed, 
the cost of repairing the damage or replacing equipment will be prorated 
among the individuals involved. 

Late Payment Fee: One time fee of 5% of overdue amount, or $10.00, 
whichever is greater, plus an addrtional 1.5% on subsequent billing. 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 15 



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

Undergraduate students withdrawing from the university will be credited for 
tuition and fees in accordance with the following schedule: 



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 



Note: First semester freshmen who receive Title IV aid and who withdraw 
will receive a refund in accordance with federal regulations. 

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 eleven 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 twelve 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 eleven or fewer, 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 sen/ice 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 sen/ices agreement(s). 

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

MILITARY CALL-UP 

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

FINANCIAL AID 

Office of Student Financial Aid 

0102 Lee Building, 314-8313 

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



The Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) administers all types of federal, 
state, and institutional financial assistance programs, and, in cooperation 
with other university offices, participates in the awarding of scholarships 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/or financial need as determined by a federal 
needs analysis system. It is OSFA's intent to provide assistance to 
students who might not otherwise be able to pursue college studies due to 
lack of finances. 

Rnancial 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 
documents to the Office of Admission by the appropriate deadlines. 

2. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after 
January 1. FAFSAs are available from OSFA. A new FAFSA Is required 
for each academic year of the student's enrollment. The FAFSA 
replaces the FAF (Financial Aid Form), which was the required 
application form in previous years. 

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

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 Federal Student Aid Programs application 
processor no later than February 7, so that it is received by the 
processor by February 15. Income for the previous year may be 
estimated Initially, and corrected later on the Student Aid Report. 

Applications received after February 15 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 each post-secondary school 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 attempt at least 12 
credit hours through schedule adjustment each semester in order to 
receive the full financial aid award. Please refer to the standards of 
Satisfactory Academic Progress when considering dropping below 12 credit 
hours for any given semester. 

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

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

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

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 published in the Schedule of 
Classes. 

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. 

Selective Service: To receive federal financial aid, students must be 
registered with Selective Service if they are male, at least 18 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. 

Receiving a Non-University Award: If a student receives assistance 
(scholarship or loan) from a non-university source, the university may 
reduce the financial aid awarded by the university. It is the student's 
responsibility to notify the Office of Student Financial Aid of all outside 
awards. 



16 Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 



Change In Financial Situation: It is the student's responsibility to notify the 
Office of Student Financial Aid of any changes to his or her financial 
situation during the year. 

Reappllcatlon Requirement: No form of assistance is automatically 
renewed from year to year. All students requesting aid must reapply by 
submitting a new FAFSA annually. Such reapplication must indicate 
continued financial need as well as Satisfactory Academic Progress. 

Award Policy: Financial aid is normally a combination of grants, loans, and 
employment. The financial aid "package" is determined by the availability 
of the various types of financial aid and the individual circumstances 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 
undergraduate at the University of Maryland at College Park for the 1993- 
94 academic year was: 

Dependent Student Uving on Campus 



Tuition and Fees in-state: 

Room 

Board 

Incidentals 

Books 

Transportation

Notes: 1. The above budget is subject to change for the 1994-95 
academic year. 
2. To determine the 1994-95 costs for tuition and fees, room, and 
board, please contact the Office of the Bursar. 

MERIT-BASED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

Sctiolarships 

Several scholarships are available to gifted students at UMCP. Two types of 
scholarships are available: those based solely on academic or creative 
talent (merit-based), and those based on financial need as well as 
academic or creative talent (need-based). The eligibility criteria for the 
different scholarships vary, and are listed below. For more information on 
these programs, students are encouraged to contact the office or 
department responsible for selecting the recipients. Please see the list of 
departmental scholarships at the end of this chapter. 

Francis Scott Key Scholarship: The University of Maryland at College Park 
seeks to identify and select some of the brightest high school seniors in 
the nation to continue their education as Francis Scott Key Scholars. 
Students selected for this prestigious award will receive full financial 
support for four years, which covers tuition, room, board, and mandatory 
fees. They will also be admitted to the Universrty Honors Program, and will 
be afforded many other opportunities for participation in intellectual 
enrichment programs. Students may nominate themselves for this award, 
or high school guidance counselors may make Key Scholar nominations. 
Applicants must submit an admission application, official transcript, and 
SAT scores to the Undergraduate Admission Office by December 1 for the 
following academic year. Credentials of National Merit Finalists and 
Semifinalists are reviewed provided these students notify the Francis Scott 
Key Scholarship Commrttee of these academic honors. Contact the Office 
of Undergraduate Admission. 

Benjamin Banneker Scholarship: The Banneker Scholarship is a four-year 
award given to exceptional African-American freshmen. New awards are 
made each year in the amount of full tuition, room, board, and mandatory 
fees. Recipients are automatically admitted to the Universrty Honors Pro- 
gram and are given priority for campus housing. Students may nominate 
themselves for this award, or high school guidance counselors may make 
Banneker Scholar nominations. Applicants must submit an admission 
application, official transcript, and SAT scores to the Undergraduate Ad- 
mission Office by December 1 for the following academic year. Credentials 
of National Achievement Rnalists and Semifinalists are reviewed provided 
these students notify the Banneker Scholarship Committee of these 
academic honors. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission. 

Regents Scholars Program: The Regents Scholars Program recognizes the 
extraordinary achievement of outstanding freshmen students. New awards 



are made each year in the amount of full tuition, room, board, and 
mandatory fees. In addition, winners receive a $1000 stipend each 
academic year. Recipients are automatically admitted to the University 
Honors Program. A select number of the top high school scholars in the 
nation will be interviewed for this most prestigious award. An admission 
application, official transcript, and SAT scores must be submitted to the 
Undergraduate Admission Office by December 1 to apply for the Regents 
Scholars Program for the following academic year. Students may nominate 
themselves, or high school guidance counselors may make Regents 
Scholar nominations. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission. 

Honors Scholarship: University, Departmental, and College Honors 
students already attending UMCP may have an opportunity to apply for one 
of these $800 awards. Financial need is not a criterion for selection. 
Regents, Key and Banneker recipients are not eligible for Honors 
Scholarships. Scholarships are renewable, if the recipient submits a written 
application and continues to meet the criteria. To be eligible for 
consideration, students must have a minimum 3.2 grade point average and 
be achieving satisfactory progress toward the completion of requirements 
for an Honors citation or for a Departmental or College Honors Program. In 
addition, the applicants must submit an essay and a faculty 
recommendation. Contact the University Honors Program. 

Full University Scholarship: The Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) 
designed the Full University Scholarship Program to recruit financially 
needy, academically talented entering freshmen to UMCP. These four-year 
awards cover tu'rtion, mandatory fees, room, and board. To be eligible for 
consideration, a student must be an incoming freshman with a grade point 
average of 3.5 or above, combined SAT scores of 1100 or higher, and 
demonstrate need as determined by OSFA via the Free Application for 
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Approximately fifteen full scholarships are 
awarded each year. Candidates will be selected from those admitted to 
UMCP by March 1. Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

UMCP Departmental Scholarships: Some Colleges and departments at 
UMCP offer a variety of merit scholarships. Most departmental scholarships 
require a student to have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and be 
registered for a minimum of 12 credits per semester. For information 
regarding departmental scholarships, please contact the appropriate 
college or department of study. 

Maryland State Scholarships: The Maryland State Scholarship 
Administration (MSSA), located in Annapolis, awards both need- and merit- 
based scholarships to Maryland residents. There are currently twenty 
drfferent programs available, including the General State Scholarship, the 
Senatorial Scholarship, the House of Delegates Scholarship, and the 
Distinguished Scholar Award. You may obtain more information about these 
and other awards by calling MSSA at (410)974-5370. All Maryland 
residents are expected to apply for State Scholarship assistance. Initial 
application for many of the awards is made through the Free Application for 
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please note that filing just the FAFSA is 
sufficient to apply for Maryland State Scholarships at UMCP. The 
application deadline for most programs is March 1. FAFSAs are available 
from the UMCP Office of Student Fnancial Aid. 

Scholarships from Other States: Several states have reciprocal 
agreements with the State of Maryland. Students who are residents of 
these states may receive funds for study in eligible post-secondary 
institutions in Maryland. Interested students should contact their state 
scholarship agencies for information. 

Scholarship Searches: A broad range of scholarships is available from 
private sources. Usually, these awards are not as well publicized as the 
state and university programs. Therefore, students should conduct a 
scholarship search to locate such sources. UMCP offers two services to 
students to aid them in their searches. The Office of Student FbiarKlal Aid 
Scholarship Match is a free sen/ice available to students wrth an overall 
grade point average of 3.0 or above. This personalized program matches 
donors with potential scholarship recipients. The applications are 
maintained in an active file for the entire academic year and must be 
renewed annually. Applications become available at the Office of Student 
Rnancial Aid in January for the upcoming academic year. CASHE (College 
Aid Sources for Higher Education) is a computerized financial aid and 
scholarship search through which students may learn about possible 
sources of financial support from thousands of resources listed. The 
program matches the student with resources that are keyed to particular 
characteristics (gender, ethnic background, major, geographic region, etc). 
When students receive their list, it is their responsibility to contact the 
sources provided for additional information and/or applications. The 
service is available to UMCP students and affiliates for $5 and to all others 
for $15. For applications for these two search sen/ices, contact the Office 
of Student Financial Aid at (301)314-8313. 



Fees, Expenses, and Financial Aid 17 



Need-Based Financial Assistance 
Grants 

The Office of Student Financial Aid administers several grant programs for 
undergraduate students. Awards are made based on financial need as 
determined by the FAFSA. Grants do not have to be repaid. 

Federal Pell Grant: This grant provides a "foundation" of financial aid, to 
which aid from other sources may be added. Only first-time undergraduate 
students (those who have not already completed a bachelor's degree) may 
receive a Federal Pell Grant. All undergraduates will be considered for this 
grant regardless of when their applications were received. Students may 
receive the Federal Pell Grant for less than full-time attendance, although 
the award will be pro-rated based on the number of credits attempted. 
Awards range from $400 to $2,300. 

Fe<leral Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG): The FSEOG 

is awarded to full-time undergraduates with exceptional need. Priority is 
given to Federal Pell Grant recipients. To be considered for FSEOG, you 
must meet OSFA's priority application deadline of February 15. Awards 
range from $200 to $600 per year. 

InstKutlonal Grants: UMCP awards grant money to full-time students who 
demonstrate financial need and who meet OSFA's priority application 
deadline of February 15. There are three funds from which money is 
awarded, and OSFA selects recipients for the awards based on which grant 
best fits their qualifications. The Frederick Douglass Grant is awarded to 
African-American undergraduates. The University Grant is awarded to 
undergraduates who have a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher. The 
UMCP Grant may be awarded to any undergraduate. Award amounts from 
these three programs range from $100 to $2,000. 

Self-Help 

Financial aid may be awarded in the form of an opportunity to obtain 
assistance, rather than as an outright monetary gift. Such aid programs are 
called "self-help," and take the form of employment programs and- student 
loans. Most of these programs are awarded based on need as determined 
by the FAFSA. 

Federal Work-Study: The Federal Worl<-Study (FWS) Program provides 
students the opportunity to earn money to meet their educational and 
personal expenses through the semester. Money earned from a FWS job 
does not have to be paid back. To be considered for FWS, students must 
meet OSFA's priority application deadline of February 15. This award is 
need-based, and may range from $800 to $2,000. Pay rates depend on the 
level of complexity of the work, but will be at least the federal minimum 
wage. FWS employees receive a paycheck every other week for the hours 
worked, like all university employees. Most FWS jobs are on campus, 
though there are opportunities for FWS students to work off campus at 
private non-profit organizations, through the Community Service Learning 
program. The number of hours students may work is limited to twenty per 
week while school is in session, or forty per week during vacations and 
summer. 

Workshlps: Dining Hall Workships may be awarded to on-campus students 
with financial need who meet OSFA's priority application deadline of 
Febnjary 15. Through a workship, funds are advanced to the student at the 
beginning of the semester when he or she completes a contract stating the 
number of hours to be worked during that semester. This program differs 
from Federal Work-Study in that the student receives all the "wages" up 
front to help cover the university bill, and so does not receive bi-weekly 
paychecks. Dining Hall workships may be awarded directly by Dining 
Services, or through OSFA. Students should either contact Dining Services 
at 314-8052, or follow OSFA's standard application procedure. 

Federal Perkins Loan: This is a low interest rate (5 percent) loan for 
students with exceptional financial need who attend at least three-quarter 
time. This is a loan borrowed from the school, and it must be paid back. To 
be eligible, students must meet OSFA's priority application deadline of 
February 15. The amount of the award will depend upon the student's 
need, and may range from $200 to $1,200. New borrowers (those who first 
receive a Federal Perkins Loan after July 1, 1988) have a grace period of 9 
months after graduating or leaving school before they must begin repaying 
their Federal Perkins Loans. Interest will begin accruing at the time of 
repayment. Students are not responsible for paying the interest on the loan 
while they are attending school. 

Federal Stafford Loan: This is a low interest rate loan for students who 
attend at least half-time. Application is made first through the school 
financial aid office via the FAFSA, then through the lending institution of the 
student's choice (bank or credit union). Eligibility for this loan is based on 
need, not credit history. This loan is borrowed by the student, and must be 



paid back by the student. 

There are two types of Federal Stafford Loans, subsidized and 
unsubaldlzed. The student must demonstrate financial need to receive a 

subsidized loan, and he or she is not required to pay the interest on it while 
in school. Students who do not demonstrate financial need, or who do not 
demonstrate sufficient need to borrow a full subsidized loan, may borrow a 
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. If a student borrows an unsubsidized 
loan, he or she will be responsible for paying the interest which accnjes 
during school attendance. The FAFSA must be completed by all students 
who wish to apply for either type of Federal Stafford Loan. The interest rate 
for new borrowers who take out their first Federal Stafford Loan on or after 
July 1, 1994, is variable, capped at 8.25%. The interest rate through June 
30, 1994, is 6.22%. Repayment of the loan will begin at the end of the 6 
month grace period after graduation or dropping below half-time status. 

Maximum loan amounts are as follows: $2,625 per year for first-year 
undergraduates, $3,500 per year for second-year undergraduates, and 
$5,500 per year for third-, fourth-, or fifth-year undergraduates. If the 
student does not demonstrate need to borrow the maximum for his or her 
year in school through the subsidized Federal Stafford Loan, he or she may 
borrow the difference in a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. For 
instance, if you are a junior, and you demonstrate need for a $3,000 
Federal Stafford Loan, you may borrow up to $2,500 more in an 
unsubsidized loan if you wish. The maximum borrowing limit for 
undergraduates is $23,000. 

The Student Loan Reform Act of 1993 has abolished the Federal 
Supplemental Loan for Students (SLS). As a result, the annual limits for the 
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan will be increased for students who are 
classified as independent, or for those dependent students whose parents 
do not qualify to borrow the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate 
Students (PLUS). Therefore, the unsubsidized loan borrowing limits will be 
increased by $4000 for first and second year undergraduates, and $5000 
for third, fourth, and fifth year undergraduates. 

Federal PLUS (Parent Loans For Undergraduate Students): This is a non- 
need-based loan which parents may borrow to help them pay for their 
dependent children's education. The Federal PLUS enables parents to 
borrow the full yearly cost of the student's education (as determined by the 
school) minus all other financial aid, including eligibility for the Federal 
Stafford Loan. There is no yearly or cumulative borrowing limit. Because 
this loan is not need-based, submission of the FAFSA is not required to 
apply. However, the loan application must first be submitted to the school 
for calculation of the amount which the parent may borrow for the student 
in that year. Final approval of the loan by the parents' chosen lender will be 
based on credit history. The interest rate for the Federal PLUS is variable, 
capped at 9%, and is reset July 1 of each year to equal the rate on the 52- 
week Treasury Bill on June 1, plus 3.1%. Repayment of the loan begins 
immediately.

For information, please contact Undergraduate Studies, (301) 405-9355, 
Bonnie Oh, Asst. Dean 

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 presents 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, The 
University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742.

Experiential Learning and Employment Programs 

Experiential Learning and Employment Programs (ELEP) provides a 
number of learning opportunities that encourage students to test 
classroom learning in work situations, explore career possibilities by 
direct participation, learn about the culture and people of an 
organization, geographic area, or academic environment, and 
enhance their personal development through work and academic 
travel. The Programs include the following: 

Internships. Internships are paid or unpaid work experiences with 
specific educational objectives for which students may be granted 
academic credit. Internships are available for most majors. The 
Career Center maintains current files on over 1000 private 
businesses and government agencies that are actively seeking 
interns. Workshops are offered to assist students in the process of 
locating internships. Rnding a rewarding internship takes time, so 
students should start looking early in the semester before they 
would like to begin work. 

Cooperative Education for Liberal Arts, Business, and the 
Sciences (Co«p). Co-op allows students to learn more about their 
field of study, gain paid, professional-level work experience that is 
related to their major, and earn a competitive salary. To be eligible, 
students must have completed thirty-six semester hours, twelve 
UMCP credits the semester before enrolling in the co-op program, 
and maintain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA. Students may work 
either full-time or part-time. The minimum work commitment is equal 
to six months of full-time work. Interested students must attend two 
required information and preparation sessions. Students 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 study at one of over 100 colleges and universities in 
the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the 
U.S. Virgin Islands. All NSE schools are regionally accredited. To be 
eligible, UMCP students must have a 2.5 GPA. Students must earn 
their final thirty hours of credits at College Park. March 1 is the 
application deadline. 

Experiential Learning Course — Courses Numbered 386. Some 
internships and cooperative education placements may be 
appropriate for academic credit. The university uses the course 



Campus Administration, Resources, and Student Services 23 



number 386 to denote experiential learning credit. The College Park 
Senate has established the following regulations governing credit for 
386: 

• To be eligible a student must have earned 56 credits, including 
12 at UMCP and 3 in the department in v»hich credit is to be 
awarded. 

• The course may be taken by permission of a faculty member, if it 
is a departmental option and in accordance with departmental 
policies. 

• The course may be taken for a letter grade or pass/fail. 

• 386 IS a variable credit course. Students may earn from 3 to 6 
credits unless otherwise stipulated by departmental policies. 

• The numt)er of credits earned depends on the number of hours 
worked at the internship site plus time spent on completing 
projects as stipulated in the Learning Proposal. 

• 386 may tie taken only once in any given department. 

• 386 may be taken in only one department per semester. 

• 386 may be taken for a maximum of 12 credits as part of an 
undergraduate program. 

In order to earn credit, students must secure a faculty sponsor and 
complete a learning proposal. The sponsor must be a faculty 
member in the department in which the student wishes to earn 
credit, and the department must be logically related to the work 
experience. The Learning Proposal is a one-page contract that spells 
out the nature of the internship, specific responsibilities, 
supervision, method of evaluation, learning objectives and contact 
with faculty sponsor. The Learning Proposal must be signed by the 
student, the on-site supervisor and the faculty sponsor and be 
submitted to the Career Center for approval. Students will not be 
pennltted to register for 386 withoiit this approval. 

Other courses: 

EDCP 108D — College and Career Advancement. Career Planning 
and Decision-Making. Feeling confused about choosing a major?

undergraduate or graduate student and UMCP alumni may develop a 
file. Credential files are most helpful to students applying to 
graduate and professional schools (law, medicine, dentistry, etc.), 
and those seeking jobs in education, government, and not-for-profit 
organizations. All senior Education majors are required to establish 
a credential file for employment purposes.

science, accounting and financial operations, and scientific research 
and applications. The Baltimore-Washington corridor offers 
additional opportunities in a vanety of government and specialized 
careers. Employers also have the opportunity to receive information 
from those graduating seniors who register for and participate in the 
Candidate Referral database service. Job searches should be 
initiated at least one year in advance of graduation.

to the chancellor from the Campus Black Community and the Study 
Commission on Student Lite. The office exists to enhance the personal and 
social development and the academic success of multi-ethnic students. Its 
mission is to work together with other resources on campus to provide 
support services for multi-ethnic 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 
multi-ethnic students at UMCP. Included among the programs are the 
Tutorial Program; Job Fair; a mentoring program; a course, EDCP 108N: 
College and Career Advancement: Concepts and Skills for Multi-Ethnic 
Students; and Celebrating Academic and Leadership Excellence to 
recognize outstanding students of color at UMCP. 

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

The Annual Career and Job Fair is designed to contribute to the career 
development of multi-ethnic undergraduates at all levels. It brings 
representatives 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 multi- 
ethnic community by encouraging and assisting in the organizing of pre- 
professional societies in each academic department. OMSE supports some 
and works cooperatively with a number of multi-ethnic pre-professional 
societies, including law, business, media, engineering, and computer 
science. OMSE also works closely with the campus Asian Student Union, 
Hispanic Student Union, Native American Student Union, Black Student 
Union, and the Panhellenic Council.

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. 

• register students for their first semester courses. 

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

variety of healthy leisure-time activities that add an important dimension to 
student life. 

Through its intramural program, CRS offers students the opportunity to 
participate in more than 25 organized sports, tournaments, and events 
each year. Activities range from flag football to Softball to wrestling. 

For students who prefer unstructured physical activities, CRS operates 
several fitness centers and weight rooms on campus. In addition, there are 
two swimming pools and a number of indoor courts on which to play 
everything from basketball to volleyball. 

Aerobics and water exercise activities are always a good way to stay fit, so 
CRS offers low-impact, high-impact, fat-bumer, and power workouts year- 
round. 

Sport clubs provide another way for all students to participate in 
recreational activities. Currently, there are more than 20 CRS-sponsored 
clubs at Maryland. Clubs range in interest from polo to Okinawan karate, 
and offer students a variety of opportunities for instruction, competition, 
practice, and socialization. 

Student registration fees cover virtually all costs of participating in CRS 
activities.

Resident Life 

2100 Annapolis Hall, 314-2100 



The Department of Resident Life is responsible for management of the 
residence halls as well as for cultural, educational, recreational, and social 
programming activities in the residence halls. A staff of undergraduate and 
graduate employees helps to meet the needs of resident students. 

On-cannpus 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. 

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 
undergraduate 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.

CHAPTER 4 



REGISTRATION, ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS, 
AND REGULATIONS 



REGISTRATION 

First Poor Mitchell Building, 314-8240 

To attend classes at the University of Maryland at College Park it is 
necessary to process an official registration. Specific r^istration 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 Ma.'ch. 

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/dipWheria. 

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 undergraduates 
may drop or add courses, change sections, or change credit level 
with no charge. Part-time undergraduates may also drop or add 
courses, change sections, or change credrt level, but they should 
consult the deadline section in the Schedule of Classes to avoid 
incurring additional charges. The choice of grading method optwn 
(including the pass-fail option) may be changed only during the 
schedule adjustment period. Registration is final and official when 
all fees are pakl. 

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. Tne student's status 
shall be considered as fulKime if the number of credit hours 
enrolled at this time is twelve 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. Instaictors must 
report discrepancies to the Office of 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 four 
credits. However, if the course that the student wishes to drop 
carries more than four credits, the student may drop the entire 
course or, in the case of a variable credit course, reduce the credit 
level by up to four credrts. Such a drop will be recorded on the 
student's permanent record with the notation "W and will be 
considered to represent a single enrollment (one of two possible) 
in the course. This mark shall not be used in any computation of 
cumulative grade point average. 

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

9. Withdrawal from the University. Students wishing to withdraw 
from al! 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 
concerned is the date that the withdrawal form is received by 
the Records Office. Notation of withdrawal, and the effective 
date of the withdrawal, will be posted to the permanent record. 
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 Admission 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 orders to the Records Office and 
process "withdrawal" papers or 'change in registration' 
papers. Complete procedures are available from the office of 
Records and Registration. 

d. Courses are not counted in the repeat policy limitations. 

10. When Dean's approval is required, the Dean for 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 

Please see Chapter 5. 

Enrollment in Majors 

A student who is eligible to remain at the University of Maryland at College 
Park may transfer among curricula, colleges, or other academic units 
except where limrtations 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. See below for information on double 
majors and double degrees. 

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 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 31 



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

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

Classification of Students 

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

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate Registration 

A senior at the University of Maryland whose GPA is at least 3.0 and who is 
within seven hours of completing the requirements for the undergraduate 
degree may, with the approval of his or her dean, the chair of the 
department concerned, and the Graduate School, register for graduate 
courses, which may later be counted for graduate credit toward an 
advanced degree at this university. The total of undergraduate and 
graduate credits in the senior year cannot be used for graduate credit 
unless proper pre-arrangement is made. Seniors who wish to take 
advantage of this opportunity must formally apply for admission to the 
graduate school. 

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate L^vel Courses 

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

A student seeking to utilize the option will normally be in the senior year, 
have earned an accumulated grade point average of at least 3.0, have 
successfully completed, with a grade of "B' or better, the prerequisite and 
correlative courses, and be a major in the offering or a closely related 
department. The student will be required to obtain prior approval of the 
department offering the course. Graduate School approval is not required. 

Enrollment in a graduate level course does not in any way imply 
subsequent 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 1990, the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland authorized the 
development of individual combined Bachelor's and Master's degree 
programs. For complete guidelines, requirements, and application 
procedures, 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 or Through the Inter- 
institutional Registration Program 

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 registration 
In the summer program of another institution and the UMS Concurrent 
Inter-institutional Registration Program. 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 Univers'ity 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 University, 
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 according 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 Registration, Mitchell Building. 

UMS Concurrent Inter-lnstitutlonal Registration Program 

College Park undergraduate students participating in the UMS Concurrent 
Inter-Institutional Registration Program should get permission from their 
dean. Coursework counts 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. 



Veterans Benefits 

Students attending the university under the Veterans Education Assistance 
Act (Title 38, U.S. Code) may receive assistance and enrollment 
certification at the Veterans Certification Office in Records and 
Registration, 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. Additionally, students who have food 
service contracts will use this photo identification card. Contact Dining 
Sen/ices directly for further information. 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. 

There is a replacement charge of $1.00 for lost or stolen registration cards 
and $20.00 for lost, stolen, or broken photo identification cards. Questions 
concerning the identification card system should be addressed to the Office 
of Records and Registration. 

Change of Address 

Students are expected to notify the Office of Records and Registrations of 
any change in their local or permanent address. Change of Address 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 requirements 
of each course for which he or she is registered. Students are 
expected to attend classes regularly, for consistent attendance 
offers the most effective opportunrty open to all students to gain 
developing command of the concepts and materials of their 
course of study. However, attendance in class, in and of itself, is 
not a criterion for evaluation of the student's degree of success or 
failure. Furthermore, absences (whether excused or unexcused) do 
not alter what is expected of the student qualitatively and 
quantitatively. Except as provided below, absences will not be 
used in the computation of grades, and the recording of student 
absences will not be required of the faculty. 
It is the policy of the university to excuse the absences of 



32 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



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 absence 
must furnish documentary support for their assertion that absence 
resulted from one of these causes. 

3. In certain courses, in-class participation is an ongoing requirement 
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 foreign 
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. 

4. Absences in courses where in-class participation is a signrficant 
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 

1. The university provides for the rescheduling of significant 
assessments 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 possibility of rescheduling. In no case may an examination be 
scheduled on Rosh Hoshanah, Yom KIppur, Good Friday or the 
flist 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 universrty 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 
assessment 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 regularly 
scheduled 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 
develops, if that is feasible, or, othenwise, 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 
Schedule. 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 graduation. 
In courses with examinations scheduled on those days, graduating 
seniors must notify their instnjctors 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 
examination requiring at least one period, unless the dean has 
authorized 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 sen/e as the basis of an allegation 
of academic dishonesty. 

a. Students arriving late for an examination may not 
unreasonably 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 the 
writing desk until the examination is officially begun by the 
proctor. 

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

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

It is the responsibility of individual faculty members to review their 
classroom behaviors, and those of any teaching assistants they supervise, 
to ensure that students are treated equitably and not discouraged or 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 33 



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 

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

The following symtwls are used on the student's permanent record for all 
courses in v^hich he or she is enrolled after the initial registration and 
schedule adjustment period: A, 8, 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 8 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 
Registrations. 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. 

AudK— 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, C,or 0. The student must inform the Registration 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 
undergraduate must have completed 30 or more credit hours of 
college credit with a GPA of at least 2.0. At least 15 of these 
credit hours must have been completed at UMCP with a University 
of Maryland 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 12 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-reglstering 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 Registration to the grade P on the student's 
permanent record. The grade F will remain as given. The choice of 
grading option may be changed only during the schedule 
adjustment period for courses in which the student is currently 
registered. 

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

1. The student will remove the "I" by completing work assigned by 
the instructor. It is the student's respqnsibility to request 
arrangements for completion of the work and to request that an 
Incomplete Contract be written. These arrangements must be 
documented in the Incomplete Contract, and signed by both the 
student and the instructor. 

2. The Incomplete Contract must be submitted to the dean of the 
college offering the course, and a copy forwarded to the Records 
Office, within six weeks after the grade submittal deadline or the 
"I" will convert to a grade of "F." A copy of the signed agreement 
should also be filed 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 T 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 
circumstances are deemed to warrant further delay. The new 
completion date must again be specified and agreed to in writing 
by the student and the dean. 

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

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

Record Notations 

in addition to the above marks, there are provisions for other record or 
transcript notations that may be used based on university policy and 
individual circumstances. 

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-AppI): In all cases of transfer from one college to 
another at the University of Maryland at College Park, the dean of the 
receiving college, with the approval of the student, shall indicate which 
courses, if any, in the 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 



34 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



student's progress toward a degree. Deletions may occur both in credits 
attempted and correspondingly in credits earned. This evaluation shall be 
made upon the student's initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. If 
a student transfers from one program to another, his or her record 
evaluation shall be made by the dean in the same way as if he or she were 
transferring colleges. If the student subsequently transfers to a third 
college, the dean of the third college shall mal<e a similar initial 
adjustment; courses marked "nonapplicable" by the second dean may 
become applicable in the third program. 

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

Campus Repeat Policy 

The following policies apply to ALL courses that may not be repeated for 
additional credit. 

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

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

b. 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. 

2. There is a limit to the number of times a student may repeat a 
course. Students may have one repeat of any 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. A student's 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. All attempts win, be counted toward the total limit for 
repeatable credits. 

3. Students may repeat no more than 18 credits. Additionally, if a 
student withdraws from aj] courses during a semester, those 
courses are not included in this limrt. 

4. The grade point average will include all attempts at a given course 
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 repeated course was taken within the student's first 
semester at UMCP, or 

• When the repeated course was taken within the student's first 
24 credit hours attempted (including transfer credits) or within 
the semester during which the student reached the 24th credrt 
hour attempted. 

5. 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 included in, the cumulative grade point 
average. 

6. Repeat by transfer — If a student repeats by transfer a course that 
was taken before or during the semester in which the student 
reached 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: 

The following students follow the old repeat policy: 

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

• Transfer students who began at a Maryland Community 
College before Fall 1990. 

• 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 be 
registered for a course more than three times. 

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



Academic Clemency Policy 

Undergraduate students returning to the University of Maryland at College 
Park after a separation of a minimum of five calendar years may pet'rtion 
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 
demonstrating 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 credits 
required for their degree through examination. Usually, this is no more than 
60 credits. Students are responsible for consulting with the appropriate 
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 
Admission chapter of this catalog. 

Departmental Proficiency Examination (Credit by Examination). 

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

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

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 
permanent record. (Equivalent to the schedule adjustment 
period.) 

b. The instructor makes the results of the examination available 
to the student prior to formal submission of the grade. Before 
final submission of the grade, 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 Registration that 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 35 



copies of the examination questions (or identifying information 

in the case of standardized examinations), and the student's 

answers have been filed with the Chair of the department 

offering the course. 

5. If accepted by the student (see 4,b, above), letter grades earned 

through credit by examination are entered on the student's 

transcript, and are used in computing his/her cumulative grade 

point average. A student may elect to take a "credit by 

examination" "Pass-Fail' only if the credit fulfills an elective in the 

student's degree program. No college, major, field of 

concentration, or general education program requirement may be 

taken under the pass-fall 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 
information, contact the CLEP Administrator in the Counseling Center, 
Room 0106A Shoemaker Hall, (314-7688), 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 leam if they will lose, maintain, or gain credit. 

3. College Park will award credrt for a CLEP examination 

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

(b) provided that the examination was not taken during a 
student's final thirty credits. The final thirty hours of credrt 
are to be taken in residence, unless prior approval has been 
granted by the student's dean. 

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

an examination covering substantially the same material. 

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

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

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

If you have questions about the applicability of specific credit to your 
program, consult the list provided in this catalog or contact your Dean's 
Office. 



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 Universrty 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 Admission 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 InstHutlon may not be credited toward 
a degree without approval in advance by the dean of the college 
from which the student expects a degree. The same rule applies 
to registration in the summer program of another institution. 
"Permission to Enroll in Another Institution" forms are available in 
the office of the 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 1989, courses taken at another 
University of Maryland Board of Regents institution (UMBC, UMAB, 
UMES. UMUC) prior to fall 1989 will be included in the cumulative 
GPA. Courses taken at any other institution may not be credited 
toward a degree without advance approval. See #1 above for 
information. 

3. UMS Concurrent Inter^nstltutional Registration Program 
College Park undergraduate students participating in the UMS 
Concurrent Inter-Institutional Registration Program should obtain 
permission from their dean. Coursework counts 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 Unhrersltles of the Washington Metropolitan Area 
Courses taken through the Consortium are considered to be 
resident credit. See above under "Consortium' and see the 
Schedule of Classes for information. 



REQUIREMENTS FOR RETENTION 

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

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

Semester Academic Honors (Dean's Ust) will be awarded to a student 
who completes within any given semester twelve or more credits (excluding 
courses with grades of P and S) with a semester GPA of 3.500 or higher. 
This notation will be placed on the individual's permanent record. 

Unsatisfactory Performance: Students with a cumulative GPA of less than 
2.000 fall into three categories: Unsatisfactory Performance, Academic 
Warning and Academic Dismissal. The notations Academic Warning and 
Academic Dismissal will be placed on the student's permanent record. The 
cumulative GPA that defines each of the categories varies according to the 
credit level as noted below:

cases. Applicable scores for a particular examination are those In effect when a student takes the exam. Contact your College Dean If you have 

questions. 

* These tests are scheduled to be revised during 1993-94. At the time this catalog was printed. Information on the new versions of those tests 
was not available. Changes In UMCP acceptance of credK for these exams are possible. Contact the Testing Office (301-314-7688) for up-to<late 
information.

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 NCR has been assigned are not included in computing 
the GPA. Each letter grade has a numerical value: A=4; B=3; C=2; 
D=l: 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 
semesters will be academically dismissed. Students who are 
academically dismissed will have this action entered on their 
transcript. 

6. Students transferring to UMCP will not be dismissed at the end of 
their first semester if they earn a GPA of 0.23 or above. (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 
Admission chapter of this catalog.) 

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

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

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

11. 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 
students 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 Landscape Architecture, 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 Registration. 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 
requirements are not completed during the semester in which the 



graduation application was submitted, it is the responsibility of the student 
to file a new graduation application with the Office of Records and 
Registration at the beginning of a subsequent semester when all degree 
requirements may be completed. 

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 department 
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 Registration at the close of each semester. 

1) Residency requirement — Final Thirty-Hour Rule 

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

b. A student who at the time of graduation will have completed 
thirty hours in residence at College Park may, under unusual 
circumstances, be permitted to take a maximum of six of the 
final thirty credits of record at another institution. In such cases, 
written permission must be obtained in advance from the dean 
of the academic unit from which the student expects to receive 
the degree. Exceptions beyond six credits will be made only 
under highly unusual circumstances; requests for an exception 
must be made through the Dean's office to the Office of the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. 

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

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

3) Credit Requirements. While several undergraduate curricula require 
more than 120 credits, no baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer 
than 120. No baccalaureate degree will be awarded in instances in 
which fewer than 120 credit hours have been earned. 

It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize himself or 
herself with the requirements of specific 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 MAJORS AND SECOND DEGREES 

Second majors 

A student who wishes to complete a second major concurrently with his or 
her primary major of record must obtain written permission in advance from 
the appropriate departments or programs and colleges. As early as 
possible, but in no case later than one full academic year before the 
expected date of graduation, the student must file with the department 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 those of the college and general 



38 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



education programs. In order to obtain approval, students must complete 
all of the requirements specified for both the primary and secondary major. 
Courses taken for one major may be counted as appropriate as part of the 
degree requirements for the general education programs. If two colleges 
are involved in the double major program, the student must designate 
which college will be responsible for the maintenance of records and 
certification of general education requirements. Rnal approval of a double 
major program must be obtained from each of the appropriate departments 
and college(s). 

Second Degrees Taken Simultaneously 

A student who wishes to receive two baccalaureate degrees simultaneously 
must satisfactorily complete the regularly prescribed requirements of both 
degree programs and a minimum of 150 credits (180 credits if one of the 
degrees is in Special Education). At least 18 of the credits applied to the 
second degree must be in course work not applied to the requirements for 
the primary degree program. As early as possible, but in no case later than 
one full academic year before the expected date of graduation, the student 
must file with the department 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 programs. 
If two colleges are involved in the double degree program, the student must 
designate which college will be responsible for the maintenance of records 
and certification of general education requirements. Rnal approval of a 
double degree program must be obtained from each of the appropriate 
departments and college(s). 

Second Degrees Taken Sequentially 

A student who has completed the requirements for, and has received one 
baccalaureate degree and who wishes to earn a second baccalaureate 
degree from College Park must satisfactorily complete all of the prescribed 
requirements for the second degree and enough additional credits so that 
the total, including all applicable credits earned at College Park or 
elsewhere, is at least 150 credits (180 credits if one of the degrees is in 
Special Education). At least 18 of the credits applied to the second degree 
must be in course work not applied to the requirements for the primary 
degree program. In no case will a second baccalaureate degree be awarded 
to a student who has not completed a minimum of thirty credits in 
residence at College Park. 



COIVIIVIENCEIVIENT 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 for a 
commencement honor. Because grades for a term generally are officially 
recorded after the term's graduation day, computation of the student's GPA 
will not include grades for courses taken during the student's final 
semester at College Park. However, the hours taken during that semester 
will apply toward the 60-hour requirement. 



Election to Phi Beta Kappa 



Organized in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely 
respected academic honorary society in the United States. Invitation to 
membership is based on outstanding scholastic achievement in studies of 
the liberal arts and sciences. Student members are chosen entirely on the 
basis of academic excellence; neither extra-curricular leadership nor service 
to the community is considered. Election is held twice a year, once in the 
fall and once in the spring semester. 

The process for election to Phi Beta Kappa involves a review in November 
for those who graduated the previous August or those who will graduate in 
December, and a review in March for those graduating in May. The review is 
conducted by a select committee of faculty members representing the 
humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The committee reviews 
transcripts of all juniors and seniors with qualifying grade point averages. 
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 (see #3 below for possible exception). 

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

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

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

3. Required courses. One semester of mathematics, which must be 
fulfilled by college level credit hours. Two semesters of a foreign 
language, at 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 (including a 
laboratory science course). Students satisfying the CORE 
Distribution Studies requirement will also satisfy the Phi Beta Kappa 
distribution requirement. Students with more challenging courses 
and moderately high grade point averages are preferred by the 
committee to those with higher grade point averages but a narrow 
range of courses. Minimal qualifications in more than one area may 
preclude election to Phi Beta Kappa. 

Recommended criteria include: 

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

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

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

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

Any questions about criteria for election to Phi Beta Kappa (including 
equivalency examinations in foreign languages) should be directed to the 
Phi Beta Kappa Office, Room 0201 Energy Research Building, 405-7369. 



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. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 39 



Definitions 

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

(a) CHEATING — intentionally using or attempting to use 
unauthorized 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 
academic dishonesty are regrettable aspects of modem education. 
These reputations become self-fulfilling and grow, unless vigorously 
challenged by students and faculty alike. 

All members of the university community students, faculty, and staff 
share the responsibility and authority to challenge and make known 
acts of apparent academic dishonesty. Faculty must undertake a 
threshold responsibility for such traditional safeguards as 
examination security and proctoring. 

Honor Pledge 

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

Procedures: Academic Dishonesty 

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

5. Upon receipt of a report of academic dishonesty, the Student 
Honor Council will assign the matter to three of its members for 
preliminary inquiry. Members of the Student Honor Council when 
acting in this capacity shall be designated Review Officers. In the 
event the report pertains to the conduct of a graduate student, 
then at least two Review Officers will be graduate students. 

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

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

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

(a) a majority of Review Officers determine that an act of 
academic dishonesty did not occur, or was not attempted, 
the council will inform the student and the course instructor 
of Its finding; or 

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

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



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

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

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

11. The principal responsibilities of the Presenter are: 

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

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

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

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

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

Procedures: Resolution by an Honor Review 

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

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

(b) Two faculty members selected in accordance with 
procedures 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 
President 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 Rve of this Code, the Campus Advocate or 
another person designated by the Vice President for Academic 
Affairs will sen/e in that capacity. 

15. 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 



40 Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 



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 
documents or other materials bearing on the case. The 
Presenter, the student, and all members of the Honor Board 
may question any person giving testimony. 

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

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

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

(f) The Honor Board will not conclude that a student has 
attempted or engaged in an act of academic dishonesty 
unless, after considering all the information before it, a 
majority of members believe that such a conclusion is 
supported by clear and convincing evidence. If this is not the 
case, the Honor Board will dismiss the charge of academic 
dishonesty in favor of the student with a finding that an 
attempt or act of academic dishonesty *did not occur", or 
that it was "not proven", whichever more accurately 
describes 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 
documents and other material may be offered. The Honor 
Board then meets privately to formulate a Recommendation. 
The recommendation of the Honor Board will be by a majority 
vote of its members. 

(h) The Presiding Officer will provide the appropriate Dean with 
a written report of the Honor Board's findings and 
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 
Officer may direct to a witness: 

III. Providing confidential advice to the student. 

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

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

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



(c; Presence at an Honor Review lies within the judgment of the 
Presiding Officer. An Honor Review is a confidential 
investigation. It requires a deliberative and candid 
atmosphere, free from distraction. Accordingly, it is not open 
to the public or other "interested" persons. However, at the 
student's request, the Presiding Officer will permit a 
student's parents or spouse to observe and may permit a 
limited number of additional observers. The Presidirig Officer 
may cause to be removed from the Honor Review any 
person, including the student or an adviser, wtx) disrupts or 
impedes the investigation, 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, wtx) are to be called upon to provide irrfotmation. 
be excluded from the Honor Review except for that purpose. 
The members of the Honor Board may conduct private 
deliberations at such times and places as they deem proper. 

(d) It is the responsibility of the person desiring the presence of 
a wrtness 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 
university employee. The work of an Honor Board will not. as 
a general practice, be delayed due to the unavailability of a 
witness. 

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

20. If the Honor Board finds that an attempt or act of academic 
dishonesty did occur, it shall recommend an appropriate sanction. 
The normal sanction shall be a grade of XF in the course, but the 
Honor Board may recommend a lesser or more severe sanction. 
Generally, acts involving advance planning, falsification of 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 modrfies 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 submit a 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. Ii the Dean awards the student a grade, including the grade of 
"XF". or fashions an academic requirement, the decision 
constitutes the final and conclusive action of the university, (f the 
Dean determines to suspend the student, then this will not be 
implemented 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 implerT>ented until reviewed by the Director of 
Judicial Programs. In each instance, the review shall be limited to 
ensuring the sanction is not grossly disproportionate to the 
findings of the Honor Board. 



Registration, Academic Requirements, and Regulations 41 



The Grade of "XF* 

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

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

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

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

(b) at the time the petition is received, the student shall have 
successfully completed a non-credit seminar on academic 
integrity, as administered by the Office of Judicial Programs; 
or, for the person no longer enrolled at the university, an 
equivalent activity as determined by the Office of Judicial 
Programs, and, 

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

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



The Student Honor Council 



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 sen/e 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 officers 
on matters pertaining to academic integrity at the university. 

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

33. The campus administration shall provide an appropriate facility, 
reserved for the primary use of the Honor Council, and surtable 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 
1992-93 academic year based in part on the annual reports of the 
Student Honor Council for the first three years of its operation. 
Consideration at that time should be given to introducing 
additional enforcement responsibilities and privileges 
characteristic of traditional honor systems at sister institutions, 
including the provision that only student members of Honor 
Boards may vote. It is expected that faculty participation on the 
Honor Boards will continue, since the faculty has an important 
interest in academic integrity, and since faculty members will have 
insights that should be considered in the resolution of individual 
cases. 



28. There shall be a Student Honor Council. The Honor Council is 
composed of twenty-five (25) full-time students, normally 
appointed 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 
Humanities; Behavioral and Social Sciences; Business and 
Management; Computer, Mathematical and Physical 
Sciences; Education; Engineering; Human Ecology; 
Journalism; Life Sciences; Health and Human Performance; 
the Dean of the School of Architecture; and the Dean for 
Undergraduate Studies will each appoint one undergraduate 
student. 

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

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

(d) If a Dean or the Committee wishes to reappoint a member of 
the Council, the Dean or the Committee shall seek the 
recommendation of the Executive Committee of the Student 
Honor Council. The Council shall recommend reappointment 
only rf the member has demonstrated a level of sen/ice and 
commitment to the functions and ideals of the Council that 
is exemplary. 

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.

GENERAL EDUCATION 



CORE LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES STUDIES 
PROGRAM (CORE) 

GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM AND REQUIREMENTS 

Dean for Undergraduate Studies: Ira Berlin (Acting) 
2130 Mitchell Building, 405-9354 

To earn a baccalaureate degree at the University of Maryland at College Park, all 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. (See "Who Completes CORE" below.) 



A liberal education Is at the heart of a civil society. 

-A. Bartlett Giamatti, former President of Yale University and Commissioner of Baseball 



Once we realize that we are what we know the importance of the liberal arts becomes 

transparent. 

■ — Ira Berlin, Dean for Undergraduate Studies, University of Maryland 

The Purpose of General Education 

Participation in a democratic society requires more than the central instruction provided by one 
major field of study. In our world of rapid economic, social, and technological change, a strong and 
broadly-based education is essential. 

General education helps students achieve the intellectual Integration and awareness they need to 
meet challenges in their personal, social, political, and professional lives. General education courses 
introduce the great ideas and controversies in human thought and experience. These courses provide 
the breadth, perspective, and rigor that allow UMCP graduates to claim to be "educated people." 

■Most Americans change their careers three times during their lifetime. A solid general education 
provides a strong foundation for the life-long learning that makes career-change goals attainable. 

General Education at UMCP = CORE Liberal Arts and Sciences Studies 

CORE makes up about one third of your undergraduate courses. 

CORE helps you choose or change your major and the shape of your whole life by introducing you to 

new ways of viewing yourself and the world around you. 

CORE offers one of the best opportunities you will ever have to explore different fields of study. 

GET THE MOST OUT OF CORE 

• PLAN ahead and see an academic advisor regularly. 

• INVEST in yourself; select CORE courses that wiil add to your understanding and appreciation of 
social, cultural, national, and international issues in the years ahead. 

• EXPLORE the wide range of opportunities offered by the university as well as the speakers, 
events, theatres, museums, galleries, libraries, and many more general education resources 
outside the classroom. 



44 General Education Programs 



CORE LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES STUDIES PROGRAM (CORE) 

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 CORE Program has four m^or components: 

FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES build competence and confidence in basic writing and mathematics. Mastery of these basics greatly 
enhances success both during and after college. Students begin fulfilling Fundamental Studies requirements in their first year at 
UMCP. 

DISTRIBUTIVE STUDIES introduce 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 allow students to enhance their degree and strengthen their critical thinking and writing skills by taking two 
upper-level courses outside their major after 56 credits. Students may substitute an approved CORE Capstone course in their major 
(after 86 credits) or a seniors or honors thesis for one of these two courses. 

HUMAN CULTURAL DIVERSITY encourages all members of our diverse undergraduate community to learn about attitudes and 
cultures different from their own. Students may complete the Cultural Diversity requirement at any time before graduation.

CHAPTER 6 



THE COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS 



COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE (AGRI) 

1224 Symons Hall, 405-2080 

Professor and Dean: Craig S. Oliver 

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 graduates must 
employ in the industrialized agriculture of today. Students are prepared for 
careers in agriculturally related sciences, technology and business. Course 
programs in specialized areas may be tailored to fit the particular needs of 
the individual student. Previous training in agriculture is not a prerequisite 
for study in the College of Agriculture; students with rural, suburban and 
urban backgrounds comprise the student body. Graduates of the College of 
Agriculture have an appropriate educational background for careers and 
continued learning after college in business, industry, production, teaching, 
research, extension, and many other professional fields. 

The original college of the University of Maryland at College Park was 
chartered in 1856. The College of Agriculture has a continuous record of 
leadership in education since that date. It became the beneficiary of the 
Land Grant in 1862. The College of Agriculture continues to grow and 
develop as part of the university system, providing education and research 
activities enabling us to use our environment and natural resources to best 
advantage while consen/ing basic resources for future generations. 

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

Agricultural and Resource Economics 

Agricultural Sciences. General 

Agronomy 

Animal Sciences 

Biological Engineering 

Horticulture 

Institute of Applied Agriculture (two-year program) 

Landscape Architecture 

Natural Resources Management Program 

Nutrition and Food Science 

Combined Degree: College 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 National 
Agricultural Library, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Headquarters in 
Washington. D.C. 

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

In addition to on-campus facilities, several operating research farms, 
located in Central, Western, and Southern Maryland and on the Eastern 
Shore, support the educational programs in agriculture by providing 
locations where important crops, animals, and poultry can be grown and 
maintained under practical and research conditions. 

Requirements for Admission 

For students entering the College of Agriculture it is recommended that 
their high school preparatory course include: English, 4 units; mathematics, 
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 

Stuoents 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:

Honors 

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

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



Student Organizations 



students find opportunity for varied expression and growth in the several 
voluntary organizations sponsored by the College of Agriculture. These 
organizations are Agribusiness Club, Agronomy Club, American Society of 
Agricultural Engineers, Animal Husbandry Club, Collegiate Future Farmers of 
America, Forestry Club, Food and Nutrition Club, Horticulture and 
Landscape Club, INAG Club, Natural Resources Management Club, Poultry 
Science Club, Soil Conservation Society of America (The University of 
Maryland Student Chapter), UM Cavalry, and Veterinary Science Club. 



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

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

Research and Service Units 

Agricultural Experiment Station 

The Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES) supports a wide array 
of agricultural enterprises, as well as environmental, economic and social 
needs through a statewide network of facilities and faculty. Experiment 
Station research and education centers are located in ten facilities 
throughout Maryland. Nearly 120 scientists throughout the University of 
Maryland System are affiliated with MAES. 

State-of-the art methodologies support the Experiment Station's diverse, 
interdisciplinary research program encompassing plant and animal biology; 
biotechnology; agricultural productivity; environment and natural resources; 
utilization and marketing; and land use and public policy. Genetic principles 
and biotechnological techniques are applied to improve turf and ornamental 
plants, vegetable and field crops, poultry, beef and dairy cattle, and other 
animals. Alternative crops and plant species that can tolerate the 
increased levels of ultraviolet light and other conditions brought on by 
global problems such as ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect are 
another focus of MAES research efforts. 

Biochemistry helps to evaluate the nutritional value of crops, the feed 
conversion efficiency of poultry and other animals, and the quality of plant 
and animal products for human consumption. Engineering principles help 
produce and maintain optimal environments for agricultural production; 
improve processing systems that lead to enhanced food quality; and 
enhance waste utilization and disposal techniques. Water quality studies 
analyze the presence and effects of toxins entering the Chesapeake Bay, 
and contribute to efforts to minimize the possible flow of agricultural 
chemicals into surface and ground water. Economic and social science 
studies are applied to preserve Maryland's high quality of life by 
maintaining farmland and open space. 

Undergraduate students do have opportunities to assist in the MAES 
research program, and to benefit from the Station's productive linkage with 
the Cooperative Extension Sen/ice as well as public and private research 
units, including the U.S. Department of Agricultural Research Center close 
to the campus in Beltsville. 

Cooperative Extension Service 

The Maryland Cooperative Extension Sen/ice (MCES) educates citizens in 
the application of practical, research-based knowledge to critical issues in 
agriculture and agribusiness; home and family economics, nutrition, and 
health; youth development and 4-H; and family and community leadership. 
The statewide program includes over 180 faculty and support staff located 
in 23 counties, the City of Baltimore, four regional centers, and the 
University of Maryland College Park and Eastern Shore campuses. 

Research faculty and extension agents work cooperatively to ensure that 
state-of-the-art research is effectively translated into educational programs, 
and delivered efficiently to the citizens of Maryland. These programs are 
focused in four major areas: 1) agricultural and aquacultural profitability; 2) 
nutrition, diet, food safety, and health; 3) natural and environmental 
resources; and 4) youth development education. In addition to work on 
farms and with agribusinesses, extension programs are aimed at many 
small and part-time farmers, youth, rural non-farm and urban family 
consumers as well as watermen and marine-related businesses. The 
Service maintains a close working relationship with the Maryland 
Department of Agriculture and other state agencies and organizations. In 
addition, more than 15,000 volunteers in Maryland give generously of their 
time and energy. 

A variety of methods help the Extension Service reach and teach Maryland 
citizens. Downlink satellite technology enables Maryland training sessions 
to include conferences and speakers from across the country. State-of-the- 
art communication technology enables the Extension Home and Garden 
Information Center to answer 60,000 questions about plants and pests 
annually. More traditional methods include conferences, teaching

institutes, short courses, field days, and demonstrations, along with 
videotapes, newsletters, newspapers, radio and television. 

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

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES 
(ARHU) 

1101 Francis Scott Key Hall, 405-2088 

Professor and Dean: Robert Griffith 
Office of Student Affairs: 405-2110 
Academic Advisors: 405-2110 

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. 
Departments 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 richly 
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, 
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 literature, 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 analytic problem-solving nurtured in humanities courses. 



These skills are essential to a successful career in any number of different 

fields. 

Entrance Requirements 

Students wishing to major in one of the creative or performing arts are 
encouraged to seek training in the skills associated with such an area prior 
to matriculation. Students applying for entrance to these programs may be 
required to audition, present slides, or submit a portfolio as a part of the 
admission requirements. 

Graduation Requirements 

The following college requirements apply only to students earning Bachelor 
of Arts degrees from the College of Arts and Humanities. These 
requirements are in addition to or in fulfillment of campus and 
departmental requirements. For information concerning the Bachelor of

intermediate level in college language courses, or 

(c) Successful completion of a language placement examination in 
one of the campus language departments offering such 
examinations. 

Students whose native language is not English should see an advisor in the 
College Office of Student Affairs. 

IVIajor Requirements 

All students must complete a program of study consisting of a major (a 
field of concentration) and supporting courses as specified by one of the 
academic units of the college. No program of study shall require in excess 
of 60 semester hours. Students should consult the unit in which they will 
major for specific details; certain units have mandatory advising. 

A major shall consist, in addition to the lower division departmental 
prerequisites, of 24 to 40 hours, at least 12 of which must be in courses 
numbered 300 or 400 and at least 12 of which must be taken at the 
University of Maryland at College Park. 

A major program usually requires a secondary field of concentration 
(supporting courses). The nature and number of these courses are 
determined by the major department. 

No grade lower than C may be used to fulfill major or supporting course 
requirements. No course for the major or support module may be taken 
Pass-Fail. 



Advising 

Freshmen and new transfer students have advisors in the Arts and 
Humanities College Office of Student Affairs (405-2110) who assist them in 
the selection of courses and the choice of a major. After selecting a major, 
students are advised in their major department and may also continue to

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

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

Afro-American Studies Program* 

Department of Anthropology 

Department of Economics 

Department of Geography 

Department of Government and Politics 

Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences 

Department of Psychology

policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review. Most first-time entering 
freshmen will gain admission to the College of Business and Management 
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 vi^ho 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: 

Transfer students, as well as on-campus students hoping to change majors 
into the College, 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 
Admission for the current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to Business 
at the freshman or transfer level, and believe they have extenuating or 
special circumstances which should be considered, may appeal in writing 
to the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies in the College of Business 
and Management. The student will be notified in writing of the appeal 
decision once it is made.

College of Business and Management at 301-405-2286. 

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 
accredited institution will have devoted the major share of their academic 
effort below the junior year to the completion of basic requirements in the 
liberal arts. A total of sixty semester hours from a community college may 
be 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 
curricula) 

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 120 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 curricula of the college may be taken in any department of the 
university, if the student has the necessary prerequisites.

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 
government applications. An apt'rtude for applied mathematics and a desire 
to understand and apply scientific methods to significant problems are 
important prerequisites for the statistician.

substantially and effectively to the research activrties of the University of 
Maryland. This college 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 
postgraduate 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 ©jidarxie 
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 desgned as enrichment for 
non-science students, giving them the opportunity to explore the realrty 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: 405-2344 

Professor and Dean: Willis D. Hawley 

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 six departments, two of which offer 
undergraduate majors in Teacher Education: the Department of Curriculum 
and Instruction, which offers early childhood, elementary, and secondary 
education programs; 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. 

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 participate actively with graduate 
students and faculty members in research undertakings and evaluation 
processes. Students also make use of the micro-teaching laboratory, the 
education technology and computer laboratory, and the curriculum 
laboratory. 



In addition to the CORE or USP program requirements, education majors 
have the opportunity to complete 45 to 55 credit hours of work in the arts, 
sciences and/or humanities. In the teacher education courses, students 
develop professional behaviors through active experiences in the college 
classroom and participate in exploring, learning and practicing with children 
and teachers in classrooms in the community. The capstone experience of 
student teaching brings classroom theory and practice together into a 
personal set of professionally appropriate skills and processes. 

Admission to Teacher Education Professional 
Coursework 

Applicants to the University of Maryland who have declared an interest in 
education are admitted to a department in the college as intended majors. 
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 
the English and math lower level fundamental studies (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 (or EDHD 419 A/B for Early 
Childhood); (3) submit a personal goal statement that indicates an 
appropriate commitment to professional education; (4) have prior 
experiences in the education field; (5) submit three letters of 
recommendation/reference; and (6) 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. Students with documented 
disabilities may contact Disability Support Sen/ices (314-7682; TTY, 314- 
7683) to make special arrangements for taking the examination. Only 
those who are admitted are able to enroll in the professional education 
sequence. An overall grade point average of 2.5 must be maintained after 
admission to Teacher Education to continue in the professional education 
programs. 

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, advancement 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, scholastic 
and curricular requirements of the College of Education. The professional 
education courses are restricted to degree-seeking majors who have met 
College of Education requirements for admission. 

Student Teaching 

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 satisfactorily 
completed before the student begins the succeeding placement. Prior to 
assignment all students in teacheir 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 supen/ised experiences in school settings 
including evaluations of the EDHD 300 (or EDHD 419 A/B for Early 
Childhood) 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 



60 College of Education 



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. The Office of Laboratory Experiences makes 
student teaching assignments with consideration given to location, 
programmatic priorities, diversity, and availability of sites. Students should 
be prepared to travel to whichever school has been assigned. Living 
arrangements, including transportation for the student teaching 
assignments, are considered the responsibility 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 120 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 (or EDHD 419 A/B for Early Childhood), 
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 Education 
must be recommended by the student's advisor and department 
chairperson and approved by the dean. 



The Office of Laboratory Experiences 

1207 Benjamin Building, 405-5604 

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

University Credentials Service, Career Center 

3121 Hombake Library, 314-7226 

All seniors graduating in the College of Education are required to complete 
a credentials file with the Career Center. Credentials consist of a record of 
a student's academic preparation and recommendations from academic

enables the Career Center to send a student's credentials to interested 
educational employers, as indicated by the student. Students who are 
completing teacher certification requirements, or advanced degrees and are 
interested in a teaching, administrative or research position in education 
may also file credentials. (This service is also available to alumni.) 

Other sewices include job vacancy listings in public/private schools and 
institutions of higher learning, on-campus interviews with state and out-of-

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.

the current and emerging needs of society. Just as the boundary between 
the functions of engineers and applied scientists or mathematicians is 
becoming less distinct, the various branches of engineering increasingly 
interact as technical problems become more sophisticated and require 
interdisciplinary 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 engineering 
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-calculus 
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 
consideration 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 Admission, the college or 
the department for updated information. 

Admission to College of Engineering 

See the Admission section in this catalog for Information on general LEP 
admissions policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 CredK Review. Most first-time entering 
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-average 
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 
113, MATH 141, and PHYS 161 with a minimum grade of C in each; 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 Engineering or 
the Office of Undergraduate Admission for the current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to 
Engineering 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. 

Students admitted to Engineering 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. 

Transfer 

All new transfer students, as well as students currently enrolled at the 
University of Maryland at College Park asking to be admitted to the College 
of Engineering, must meet the competitive admission requirements in 
effect for the semester in which they plan to enroll. The requirements for 
admission to all programs are 

1. Attainment of a cumulative grade point average which equals or 
exceeds the minimum set to meet the competitive admission 
requirements. 

2. Completion of the following three gateway courses or their 
equivalents with a minimum grade of "C in each: MATH 141, CHEM 
113, and PHYS 161. 

Special Notes 

1. students with a previous B.A. or B.S. degree will be admitted to the 
College of Engineering with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and completion 
of the five prerequisites (MATH 140, MATH 141, CHEM 103, CHEM 
113. and PHYS 161). 

2. UMBO and UMES students will be admitted to the College of 
Engineering with official verification of their enrollment in 
engineering programs at their respective universities. 



62 College of Engineering 



3. Maryland community college and Northern Virginia Community 
College students who meet the freshmen admission requirements 
but choose to attend a community college have the following 
options: 

a. Remain at the community college in an articulated engineering 
program and complete at least 56 credits, after which time the 
student will be admitted to the college on application provided 
that he/she has at least a 2.0 GPA at the community college. 
(This will apply to all majors within the college except aerospace 
and electrical engineering.) The student must supply the high 
school transcript and SAT scores. In the event that the 
community college does not offer a 56-credit articulated 
engineering program, the student may transfer earlier. 

b. Transfer immediately to the college provided the student has 
completed the five required courses (MATH 140, MATH 141, 
CHEM 103, CHEM 113, and PHYS 161) and meets the 
competitive GPA for the semester of intended enrollment on the 
College Park campus. 

*Please Note That Minimum GPAs Are Subject To Change Each 
Semester. 



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 
describing each department in the College of Engineering. No student may 
modify the prescribed number of hours without special permission from the 
Dean of the college. The courses in each curriculum may be classified in 
the following categories: 

1. Courses in the CORE Liberal Arts and Science Studies Program. 

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

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

4. Courses in the major department. A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution of courses from the department chair 
and the Dean of the college. The courses in each engineering 
curriculum, as classified below, form a sequential and 
developmental pattern in subject matter. In this respect, curricula in 
engineering may differ from curricula in other colleges. Some 
regulations which are generally applicable to all students may need 
clarification for purposes of orderly administration among 
engineering students (see the Academic Regulations section of this 
catalog). Moreover, the College of Engineering establishes policies 
which supplement the university regulations. 

College Regulations 

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

2. Required courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry have 
highest priority; and it is strongly recommended that every 
engineering student register for mathematics and chemistry or 
mathematics and physics each semester until the student has fully 
satisfied requirements of the College of Engineering in these 
subjects. 

3. To be eligible for a bachelor's degree in the College of Engineering, 
a student must have an overall average of at least a C (2.0) and a 
grade of C or better in all engineering courses (courses with an EN 
prefix). Responsibility for knowing and meeting all graduation 
requirements in any curriculum rests with the student. 

4. All students are required to complete a number of general education 
courses and must follow the university's requirements regarding 
completion of the general education (CORE) Program. Consult the 
Academic Regulations section of this catalog for additional 
information. Engineering students who began college level work 
(either at the University of Maryland or at other institutions) during 
the Fall 1989 semester or later are required to complete a junior 
level English course (with the exception of Agricultural Engineering 
students) regardless of their performance in Freshmen English 
classes. This represents a college policy, not a university-wide 
policy. Students beginning college-level work in the Fall 1989 
semester must also plan their general education (CORE) courses to 
reflect depth as well as breadth. They should plan to take at least 
two courses (preferably a lower level and upper level course) which 
follow a theme area or provide more than simply introductory level 



study in one general studies department of their choice. 
5. All degree programs in the College of Engineering require a 
minimum of 120 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 120 by some number that will depend on the specific major 
and the student's background. 

Curricula for the various engineering departments are given in this catalog 
to illustrate how the programs can be completed in four years. These 
curricula are rigorous and relatively difficult for the average student. 
Surveys have shown that only about one-third to one-half of the students 
actually receive an engineering degree in four years. The majority of 
students (whether at Maryland or at other engineering schools nationwide) 
complete the engineering program in four and one-half to five years. It is 
quite feasible for a student to stretch out any curriculum; this may be 
necessary or desirable for a 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 Engineering 
Student Affairs Office at least two semesters before graduation to review 
their academic progress and discuss final graduation requirements. 



Advising 

Advising is available by appointment Monday through Friday, from 9:00 
a.m. to 11:30 a.m and 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, Biological Resources 
Engineering (see also College of Agriculture), Chemical Engineering, Civil 
Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechanical 
Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Undesignated Engineering (Engineering 
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 100 and 
ENES 102. 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 
departments. In addition to the core courses noted above, several courses 
of general interest to engineering or non-engineering students have been 
given ENES designations. See the List of Approved Courses in this catalog 
for further descriptions of these courses. 

Freshman Curriculum 

All freshmen in the College of Engineering are required to complete the 
following basic curriculum regardless of 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.

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 
guidance, counseling, and program planning from that point until the 
completion of the degree requirements of that department as well as the 
college. For the specific requirements, see the curriculum listing in each 
engineering department. 

Dual Degree Program 

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

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

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

Dual Degree Program in Engineering and 
German 

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

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

The Japan Technological Affairs Program 

The Japan Technological Affairs Program offers students in the College of 
Engineering intensive Japanese language instruction, workshops, and 
activities related to Japanese culture and society to prepare students for 
year long internships in Japan in a Japanese laboratory or company. The 
program is coordinated between the College of Engineering and the 
Department of East Asian Languages. Students complete their 
baccalaureate 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 programs. 
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.

bustling commercial port of Baltimore, the College of Journalism at the 
University of Maryland is one of only six comprehensive journalism schools 
in the 10 states stretching from New York to Virginia — ^the nation's most 
populous region. But the college has a lot more than geography going for it. 
In a study by the Gannett Center for Media Studies at Columbia University, 
the college recently was designated one of "Eleven Exemplary Journalism 
schools" nationwide: those that surpass others in criteria including 
teaching, research, facilities and job placement. 

Founded in 1947, the college has been accredited for close to three 
decades by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass 
Communication. Since it is within easy reach of the offices of Washington 
and Baltimore newspapers and the Washington bureaus of news 
organizations such as The New York Times, the Associated Press and the 
major networks, it is an ideal place for the study of journalism and mass 
communication. Students have internship opportunities at a variety of 
media, non-profit, government and international agencies. Talented adjunct 
faculty members are also tapped from these organizations to enhance

emphases are provided in the areas of news and magazine. 

Admission to College of Journalism 

See the Admission chapter in this catalog for general LEP admissions 
policies. 

Freshman Admission and the 45 Credit Review. Most first-time entering 
freshmen will gain 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 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 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) 
Fundamental Studies: (2) 60% of Distributive Studies; (3) ENGL 101 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 
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 
Fundamental Studies: (2) completion of 60% of Distributive Studies; (3) 
completion of ENGL 101 and JOUR 201 with grades of C; and (4) 
attainment of a minimum cumulative GPA for all college-level work 
attempted. 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 (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 Admission 
for the current GPA standard. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to 
Journalism 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 Admission. The student 
will be notified in wnting 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.

Degrees 

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

Graduation Requirements 

students are required to earn a minimum of 121 credits. Accrediting 
regulations require three-fourths of a student's coursework (a minimum of 
90 credits) 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 sen/e 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 option, a mathematics 
option, or a combination of the two. 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

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 movements: 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 facil'rties 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 11 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 
composite materials and structures, including an autoclave, an x-ray 
machine, and a 220 Kip Uniaxial test machine with hydraulic grips. The 
Space Systems Laboratory operates the Neutral Buoyancy Research facility 
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 network access to many 
minicomputers, the campus mainframes, and several supercomputing 
centers.

"Required if you select the Senior Thesis option or Policy Seminar in Afro- 
American Studies. 

Students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in each course that is to be 
counted toward completion of degree requirements. All related or 
supporting courses in other departments must be approved by an AASP 
faculty advisor. 

Honors Program 

Academically talented undergraduates may enroll in the University Honors 
Program with a specialization in Afro-American Studies. The honors program 
includes seminars and lectures presented by distinguished UtVICP faculty 
and guests. A reduced ratio of students to faculty insures a more 
individualized study focus. In addition, AASP majors with junior standing 
may petition to become individual honors candidates in Afro-American 
Studies. 



BA/MPM Program 

An innovative joint program whose candidates earn a Bachelor's degree in 
Afro-American Studies and a IVIaster's degree in public management after 
approximately five years, the BA/MPM is designed to integrate the study of 
the history, culture and life of African Americans with technical skills, 
training and techniques of contemporary policy analysis. The program also 
features a summer component that includes a lecture series, research 
opportunities, and special seminars. 

Admission into the BA/MPM program requires two steps: 

Undergraduate 

(1) Students must major in the public policy concentration within the 
Afro-American Studies program and maintain an overall GPA of 
3.00 or greater. 

Graduate 

(2) Students apply to the joint program after completing 81 credit 
hours of undergraduate work. Applicants must meet both UMCP 
graduate and School of Public Affairs graduate admission 
requirements. 

Eligibility 

Freshmen or UMCP students in good academic standing with fewer than 60 
credits are encouraged to apply. 

Contact: The Afro-American Studies Program at 301-405-1158 for 
application and scholarship details. 



Options for Study with AASP 

For students who major in other departments, the Afro-American Studies 
Program offers three options for study: 

1. The AASP Certificate in the general concentration or in the public 
policy concentration. Students may obtain a certificate by 
completing twenty-one credit hours of course work. To qualify for the 
certificate in AASP, students must take AASP 100, AASP 101 and 
AASP 200 or AASP 202; nine credits of upper division AASP 
electives"; and AASP 402. 

•♦Three of these credits may be taken outside of the 
department but permission is required from the AASP 
Advisor. 

2. Students may designate Afro-American Studies as a double major 
study area, completing the major requirements for both AASP and 
another program. 

3. AASP is the supporting area of study for the Computer Science 
major, as it can be for other fields of study such as Business 
and/or Engineering.

The Major 

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

The agronomy curricula are flexible and allow the student either to 
concentrate on basic science courses that are needed for graduate work or 
to select courses that prepare for employment at the bachelor's degree 
level. Graduates with a bachelor's degree are employed by private 
corporations as environmental soil scientists, golf course managers, 
agribusiness company representatives, or by county, state, or federal 
government as agronomists or extension agents. Students completing 
graduate programs are prepared for research, teaching, and management 
positions with industry, international agencies, or federal and state 
government. Advising is mandatory.

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 in 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, sociolo^, anthropology, art 
history, 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.

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

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/Semlnar in American Studies (3): required of majors. 

Core Areas Outside American Studies (24 hours 
required)

The Major 

Anthropology, the holistic study of humanity, seeks to understand humans 
as a whole — as social animals who are capable of symbolic communication 
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 biological evolution of human species, and of the cultural 
evolution of human beings' knowledge and customary behavior. 

Anthropology at UMCP offers rigorous training for many career options. A 
strong background in anthropology is a definite asset in preparing 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 8A 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: ethnolo^ (also knov^n as 
cultural anthropology), archaeolo^, 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 anthropology, archaeolo^, and 
ethnographic methods. Field schools are offered in archaeology and 
ethnography. The interrelationship of all branches of anthropology is 
emphasized. 

The undergraduate curriculum Is closely tied to the department's Master In 
Applied Anthropology (MAA) program: accordingly, preparation for non- 
academic employment upon graduation is a primary educational goal of the 
Department's undergraduate coursew/ork and internship and research 
components. 

The Anthropology Department has a total of four laboratories located In 
Woods Hall, which are divided Into teaching labs and research labs. The 
department's two archaeology labs, containing materials collected from 
field schools of the past several years, serve both teaching and research 
purposes. The other two laboratories are a teaching laboratory in biological 
anthropology and the Laboratory for Applied Ethnography and Community 
Action Research. 

All students have access to a twenty-workstation IBM computer laboratory 
located at 1102 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 
anthropology 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. 
Quantitative methods course(s) beyond MATH 110 are strongly 
encouraged, as is foreign language course work. 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 early 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 members 
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, 
OlOOA Woods Hall, 405-1435. 



Honors 

The Anthropology Department also offers an Honors Program that provides 
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 
association 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.

The Major 

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

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

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 teaching, or for any profession in 
which clear thinking and writing are required. 

The requirements for a major in Art History are as follows: three ARTH 
courses (9 credits) at the 200 level; seven ARTH courses (21 credits) at 
the 300-400 level; either ARTT 100 or ARTT 110; 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. 

Honors Program: Qualified majors may participate in the department's 
honors program, which requires the completion of 6 credits of ARTH 378 
and 6 credits of ARTH 379. Consult a departmental advisor for details. 

Awards: The Department of Art History and Archeology offers three 
undergraduate awards each year; the J.K. Reed Fellowship Award to an 
upper-level major and the George Levitine and Frank DiFederico Book 
Awards to seniors 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 laboratories or 
for graduate work in astronomy or related fields. A degree in astronomy has 
also proven valuable as preparation for non-astronomical careers. 

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 410 (Radio Astronomy). Two additional upper level astronomy 
courses are also required. 

Students majoring in astronomy are also required to obtain a good 
background in physics and in mathematics. The normal required sequence 
is PHYS 171. 272. 273 and the associated labs PHYS 275. 276 and 375. 
With the permission of the advisor, PHYS 161, 262, 263 plus 375 can be 
substituted for this sequence. Astronomy majors are also required to take 
a series of supporting courses in mathematics. These are MATH 140. 141, 
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 
observatory on campus. This is equipped with a COD camera which is used 
in the obsen/ing 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 designed especially for the non-science major. ASTR 101 is a 
general survey course including laboratory work. It briefly covers most of 



the major topics in astronomy. 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. Cosmology, 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. Honors students work with a faculty 
advisor on a research project for which academic credit may be earned. 
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. 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.

Director: OIek 

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 (BIVS) or 
general studies (BGEN) options. 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 Manne Biology (MARS). Students selecting one of these areas 
complete 21 - 24 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 teaching 
laboratories incorporate modem research technologies to provide students 
with the very best learning environment. The program requires supporting 
course work in chemistry, mathematics and physics, yet still allows time for 
exploring other academic disciplines and securing a quality general 
education. 

Each of the participating departments offers research opportunities 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, the Patuxent Wildlife Refuge, the National Zoo. and the 
Chesapeake Bay Laboratory are just a few of the many srtes utilized by 
UMCP students. 

Many of our graduates pursue advanced degrees in master's or doctoral 
programs or by entering medical, dental, or other professional schools. 
Some 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 
representatives for the biotechnology industry, and lawyers specializing in 
environmental and biotechnology related issues.

The Majors 

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers the 8.S. degree in 
both Chemistry and Biochemistry. Either curriculum is designed to prepare 
major students for entering graduate school, for career opportunities in 
chemical and pharmaceutical industries, for basic research positions in 
government and academic laboratories, or to attend professional schools. 

Requirements for Chemistry Major 

Majors in Chemistry or Biochemistry should take the new sequence CHEM 
143-153, General Chemistry for Majors. Transfer students or students 
changing to the major after the freshman year will take a three-course 
sequence: CHEM 103,113,227. 

The major in chemistry requires forty-one credits in chemistry, of which 
eighteen are lower-level and twenty-three are upper-level. Six credits of the 
twenty-three upper-level requirements must be selected from approved 
chemistry courses. The program is designed to provide the maximum 
amount of flexibility to students seeking preparation for either the 
traditional branches of chemistry or the interdisciplinary fields. In order to 
meet requirements for a degree to be certified by the American Chemical 
Society, students must select one laboratory course from their upper level 
chemistry electives. 

A sample program, listing only the required or recommended courses, is 
given below. It is expected that each semester's electives will include 
courses intended to satisfy the general requirements of the university or of

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 
engineering: construction engineering and management, environmental 
engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, 
transportation engineering, and water resources and remote sensing. A

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, 
database systems, human factors, numerical analysis, programming 
languages, software engineering, and theory of computing. Computer 
science incorporates concepts from mathematics, engineering, and 
psychology. 



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

Requirements for M2tjor 

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:

Note ; CMSC 421, 451, and 452 require CMSC 251 as an 

additional prerequisite. Courses in Numerical Analysis require 

MATH 240 or 241 as additional prerequisites. Students without 

either of these prerequisites must choose their 15 credits hours 

from the remaining courses in the other three areas. 

2. MATH 140 and 141 (or Math 250, Math 251). A STAT course which 
has MATH 141 (or a more advanced mathematics course) as a 
prerequisite, and one other MATH, STAT, or MAPL course which as 
MATH 141 (or a more advanced mathematics course) as a 
prerequisite. A grade of C or better must be earned in each of the 
courses. No course that is cross-listed as CMSC may be counted in 
this requirement. 

3. A minimum of 12 addrtional credit hours of 300400 level courses 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.

languages as recorded on their high school transcripts, they are not 
required to take any foreign languages in the college, although they may 
elect to do so. 

If students are not exempt from the foreign language requirements, they 
must complete courses through the 104 level of a modern language or 204 
level of a classical language. 

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

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

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

English Education 

A'major in English Education requires forty-five semester hours in English 
and speech. All electives in English must be approved by the student's

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 
foundation for the dance professions. By developing an increasing 
av^areness 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 w/hole. To 
facilitate the acquisition of new movement skills, as well as creative and 
scholarly insights in dance, the curriculum provides a structured breadth of 
experience at the lower level. At the upper level students may either involve 
themselves in various general university electives, or they may concentrate 
their energies in a particular area of emphasis in dance. Although an area 
of emphasis is not mandatory, many third and fourth year students are 
Interested in studying a singular aspect of dance in depth, such as 
performance, choreography, production/management, or general studies 
(encompassing dance history, literature and criticism). 

The dance faculty is composed of a number of distinguished teachers, 
choreographers, and performers, each one a specialist in his or her own 
field. Visiting artists throughout the year make additional contributions to 
the program. There are several performance and choreographic 
opportunities for all dance students, ranging from informal workshops to 
fully mounted concerts both on and off campus. 

Requirements for Major 

students must complete 57 semester hours of dance credits. Of these, 18 
hours of modern technique and four hours of ballet technique are required. 
Majors may not use more than 72 DANC credits toward the total of 120 
needed for graduation. In addition to the 22 technique credits required, 
students must distribute the remaining 35 credits as follows: 

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

DANC 102— Rhythmic Training 2 

DANC 109— Improvisation 2

DANC 483— Dance History II 3 

DANC 370— Kinesiology for Dancers 4 

DANC 210— Dance Production 3 

DANC 485— Seminar in Dance 3 

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

New, re-entering and transfer students are expected to contact the 
department following admission to the university for instructions regarding 
advising and registration procedures. Although entrance auditions are not 
required, some previous dance experience is highly desirable. 

Dance Concentration 

The Department of Dance offers a Concentration in Dance of 22-24 credits. 
Students take 14-15 hours of specified core courses and 8-9 hours of 
courses in an emphasis of the student's choice.

The Major 

Economics is the study of the production, pricing, and distribution of goods 
and sen/ices within societies. Economists study such problems as inflation, 
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, regulations, and 
taxation either directly or indirectly affect both households and firms. 
Second, there is a growing interdependency among economies throughout 
the world. Extensive worldwide markets exist in which goods and services 
are traded, and capital and investments move across national boundaries. 
Economic events in one nation are often quickly transmitted to other 
nations. 

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

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

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

Economics majors have a wide variety of career options in both the private 
and public sectors. These include careers in state and local government, 
federal and international agencies, business, finance and banking, 
journalism, 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 Mqjor 

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 140), with a grade of C 
or better in each course. 



Education, Policy, Planning, and Administration 91 



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. 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 or BMGT 230 or BMGT 231 
or STAT 400; 

b) three hours in economic history or comparative systems; ECON 
310, ECON 311, ECON 315, ECON 380, or ECON 410; 

c) nine hours in courses with at least one semester of 
intermediate theory or economic statistics (ECON 321) as a 
prerequisite. 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 15 hours of credit in upper division courses in 
addition to the 36 hours of Economics (and Mathematics) courses 
listed above and the University's CORE requirements. Upper 
division courses include all courses with a 300 number and above 
except the Junior English writing class. Additional mathematics 
courses beyond the required mathematics course (MATH 220 or 
140), and computer programming courses at the 200 level and 
above may be counted as fulfilling the Additional Support Course 
Requirement. Additional economics courses may be included 
among the 15 hours of supporting courses. 

All courses meeting this Additional Support Course requirement must 
be completed with a grade of C or better and may not be tal<en 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 
140 or 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 department's 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 417) 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 140, 
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 supen/ision 
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 $1,000, is awarded to the 
outstanding Economics junior and senior with a broad liberal arts program. 

Student Organizations 

Omicron Delta Epsilon, the economics honorary society, meets regularly to 
discuss graduate study in economics and other fields, employment 
opportunities, and recent economic trends. Please see the Undergraduate 
Economics Secretary, 3105 Tydings, for membership information.

tDistinguished Scholar-Teacher 

The Major 

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

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

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



Requirements for Major 

Requirements for the Electrical Engineering major include thorough 
preparation in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering science. 
Elective courses must include both Electrical Engineering courses and 
technical courses outside the department. A sample program for the

General Regulations for the B.S. Engineering 
Degree 

All undergraduate students in engineering will select their major field 
sponsoring department at the beginning of their second year regardless of 
whether they plan to proceed to a designated or an undesignated degree. A 
student wishing to elect the undesignated degree program may do so at 
any time following the completion of the sophomore year, or a minimum of 
fifty earned credits towards any engineering degree, and at least one 
semester prior to the time the student expects to receive the 
baccalaureate degree. As soon as the student elects to seek an 
undesignated baccalaureate degree in engineering, the student's 
curriculum planning, guidance, and counseling will be the responsibility of 
the "Undesignated Degree Program Advisor" in the primary field 
department. 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 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 
administration; (2) to provide the basic professional training for those 
students who wish to continue their engineering studies on the graduate 
level in one of the new interdisciplinary fields of engineering such as 
environmental engineering, bio-medical engineering, systems engineering, 
and many others; and finally (3) to educate those students who do not plan 
a normal professional career in a designated engineering field but wish to 
use a broad engineering education so as to be better able to sen/e 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 particularly 
attractive to those students contemplating graduate study or professional 
employment in the interdisciplinary engineering fields, such as 
environmental engineering, bio-engineering, bio-medical, systems and 
control engineering, and manufacturing engineering, or for preparatory entry 
into a variety of newer or interdisciplinary areas of graduate study. For 
example, a student contemplating graduate work in environmental 
engineering might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or her 
program; a student interested in systems and control engineering graduate 
work might combine 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 
developmental abilities fostered by an engineering education as a means 
of furthering career objectives. Graduates of the applied science option 
may aspire to graduate work and an ultimate career in a field of science, 
law, medicine, business, or a variety of other attractive opportunities which 
build on a combination of engineering and a field of science. Entrance

requirements for law and medical schools can be met readily under tbe 
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.

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. 
5|n 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. 

^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. 

The English major has three parts. The Core Requirements assure that 
students read widely and become aware of the questions an inquiring 
reader might ask of a text. The Concentration offers students the 
opportunity to read more deeply in an area of special interest. The Electives 
allow students to explore other areas of interest. 

Core Requirements (18 credits) 

All to be taken at the 300- or 400-level 

1. English 301: Critical Methods in the Study of Literature. Majors 
must take 301 before they take other 300- or 400- level English 
courses. We recommend it be taken during the sophomore year. 

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

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

4. A course in American Literature. 

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

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

Concentrations (12 credits) 

(Four courses beyond the Core Requirements) 

Students choose one of the following: 

1. Brrtish and American Literature 

2. American Literature 

3. Language. Writing, and Rhetoric 

4. Creative Writing

6. Mythology and Folklore 

7. Literature by Women 

8. International Literature (special permission required) 

9. Cultural Studies (special permission required) 

10. Student Specified Concentration (special permission required) 



Electives (9 credits): Chosen in consultation with an advisor. 

Only two 200-level courses may be counted toward the major. No course 
with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy the major or supporting 
area requirements. For further details on requirements, contact the English 
Department's Office of Undergraduate Studies (2115 SCP. 405-3825). 

English Education 

In conjunction wrth the College of Education, the English Department offers 
a special SScredit program for students wishing to major in English and 
earn a certificate to teach English on the secondary level. For a list of 
requirements, contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies (2115 SCP. 
405-3825). 

Honors 

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

The Writing Center 

The Writing Center. 2105 SCP. 405-3785. provides free tutorial assistance 
to students with writing assignments. English 101 students generally work 
with student tutors. English 391/2/3/4/5 students usually work with

The Major 

The major in Family Studies emphasizes an understanding 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 throughout the family life 
span, interpersonal relations, and resource use. Education about family life 
issues such as family life enrichment. Intergenerational relations, family 
crises, legal problems, and changing family forms and lifestyles are 
studied. Intervention strategies alleviating and preventing family problems 
and an understanding of the reciprocal relationships between families and 
the policies, practices, and management of institutions and organizations 
are 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 Major 

The fire protection engineering major is concemed 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 industrialized 
society has become a specialized activity. Control of the hazards in 
manufacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of measures 
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. 

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

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

The 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 211 — 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 211 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. 



The Italian Major 

The undergraduate major in Italian consists of 36 hours of Italian courses 
above ITAL 203. To satisfy the major requirements, students must take the 
following courses: the language sequence: ITAL 204, 211, 301, and either 
302 or 311; the literature sequence: 251, 351, 352; five courses at the 
400 level. No grade lower than C may be used to satisfy the major 
requirements. Additional requirements outside Italian: 12 credits in 
supporting courses as approved by the Department; or at least 12 credits 
(six credits at the 200 level and six credits at the 300-400 level) in one 
specific area, representing a coordinated plan of study. 

Students must take language acquisition courses sequentially, i.e., 203. 
204, 301, etc. Once credit has been received in a higher level language 
acquisition or grammar course, a lower level course may not be taken for 
credit.

The Major 

The Department of Geography offers programs of study leading to the 
Bachelor of Science degree. Many students find that the multiple 
perspectives 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 observation, 
statistical analysis, and mathematical modelling. 

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

Major Requirements Including Program Options 

Within any of the specializations available in the geography major program 
it is possible for students to adjust their programs to fit their individual 
interests. The geography major totals thirty-seven semester hours. In 
addition to the thirty-seven semester hours, the geography major is 
required to take an additional fifteen semester hours of supporting 
coursework outside of the department. The hours can be either in one 
department or in an area of concentration. An area of concentration 
requires that a written program of courses be reviewed and placed on file 
by the department advisor. See Professor Cirrincione, 1125 LeFrak Hall,

Computer Mapping, Cartography and Spatial Analysis. Prepares students 
for careers in map design, compilation, and reproduction. The department 
offers various courses in thematic mapping, cartographic history and 
theory, map evaluation, map, photo, and image interpretation, computer- 
assisted cartography, spatial statistics, and geographic information 
systems. Students concentrating in cartography are not required to take 
GEOG 305 and are limited to nine hours of upper level systematic 
geography courses. Students must complete fifteen hours in

Geography Minor and Secondary Education Geograpliy 
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 211 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 
undergraduates (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 understanding of the field by linking the theoretical aspects of 
geography acquired in the classroom to the applied aspects operating in a 
practice situation. The internship program is open only to geography juniors 
and seniors. All interns must have completed the following prerequisites: 
GEOG 201, 202, 203, 211, 305, and 310. An application form from the 
undergraduate geography advisor must be submitted one semester before 
the internship is desired. See Professor Cirrincione, 1125 LeFrak Hall (405-

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, biolo^ 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 
employment outlook. Employment potential is strong in such specialties as 
hydrology and groundwater, mineral resource consumption, land use 
planning, 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 
emphasis include: Advanced Study for Graduate School, Energy and Mineral 
Resources, Mineral and Materials, Environment and Engineering Geology, 
and Earth Science Education. These areas 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 require field trips for 
which students are expected to pay for room (if required), board, and part 
of the transportation costs. Field camp is taken during the summer at 
institutions other than UMCP offering camps approved by the Department.

•Joint with Afro-American Studies 

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs designed to 
prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, 
teaching, and a variety of graduate programs, iav^ schools, and for 
intelligent and purposeful citizenship. Satisfactory completion of 
requirements 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 
government 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 
techniques 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) international 
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 entering 
freshmen will gain admission to the Department of Government and Politics 
directly from high school. Those 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) a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0; and 
(2) 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. 

Appeals. Students who are unsuccessful in gaining admission to 



Government and Politics 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 may be notified 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 Government and Politics 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. 

Requirements for Major 

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

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

Honors Program 

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



Internships 



The department offers students a variety of internship experiences. Only 
nine hours of GVPT internship credit will apply to the thirty-six hours needed 
in the major. In no case may more than fifteen GVPT internship credits t>e 
counted toward the 120 credits needed to graduate. Internships are open 
only to GVPT majors with junior standing and a 3.0 GPA.

The Major 

Hearing and speech sciences is an inherently interdisciplinary field, 
integrating knowledge from the physical and biological sciences, medicine, 
psychology, linguistics, and education in order to understand human 
communication and its disorders. The department curriculum leads to the 
Bachelor of Arts degree. An undergraduate major in this field is an 
appropriate background for graduate training in speech-language pathology 
or audiology, as well as for graduate work in other disciplines requiring a 
knowledge of normal or disordered speech, language, or hearing. The 
student who wishes to work professionally as a speech-language 
pathologist 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 prerequisites 
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. 



102 Hebrew and East Asian Languages and Literatures 



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 Hearing 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 several well-equipped research laboratories and a language 
preschool. 

Student Organizations 

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

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 programs 
with foreign universities or at other approved centers of higher education. 

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 
Intermediate level language courses develop effective communication 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 



History 103 



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 translation. 

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 
Jewish Studies office for requirements. 

Students must take language acquisition courses sequentially, i.e., 101, 
102, 201. 202. etc. Once credit has been received in a higher level 
language acquisition or grammar course, a lower level course may not be 
taken for credit. 

Hebrew may be used to meet university and college language 
requirements. 

Honors and Awards 

Several forms of recognition for those excelling in Hebrew are available: 
Membership in Eta Beta Rho, the Hebrew Honor Society, the B'nai 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. 

Internship Program 

This program allows students to gain practical experience by working in 
Washington/Baltimore area firms, corporations, and social service 
organizations 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 Horticulture and Landscape Architecture offers two 
undergraduate majors, one leading to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in 
Horticulture and one leading to a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) 
degree. Horticulture majors may choose from three options in Horticultural 
Production, Horticultural Science and Landscape Contracting. Each major 
prepares students for either graduate study or entry into horticultural and 
landscape related industries or businesses. Advanced studies leading to a 
Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Horticulture 
degree are available to qualified students interested in research, teaching 
and/or agricultural extension. 

Students majoring in Horticulture are required to study fundamental 
science as a basis for solving problems of world food supply and 
environmental concerns. Horticulture is a very diverse profession that has 
programs ranging from fruit, vegetable, floral and nursery crop production to 
urban forest and park management. It requires a broad knowledge of plant 
diversity, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and environmental 
ecolo^. Horticulture graduates are in high demand world-wide in traditional 
agricultural production as well as the growing fields of biotechnology and 
natural resource management. 

Landscape Architecture students become involved in a four-year 
interdisciplinary program aimed at fostering a sustainable future at three 
levels of decision making: strategic policy, land planning, and 
environmental design. Students acquire knowledge of natural sciences, 
social sciences, and the arts, and apply that knowledge through related 
skills in a combination of classroom and studio atmospheres. The BLA 
program is a limited enrollment program (see the Admissions section in 
this catalog for general Limited Enrollment Program (LEP) admissions 
policies). Transfer students must meet the following requirements for the 
fall semester in which they plan to enroll: a cumulative GPA of 2.7; 
completion of two gateway courses with a "B" or better in MATH 115 (Pre- 
calculus) and HORT 100 (Introduction to Horticulture) or BIOL 105 or BIOL 
106 (Principles of Biology I and II); completion of a supplemental 
application of four essay questions; and evidence of creative ability. Please 
note that students are offered admission to the BLA program in the fall 
semester only. Students who are denied admission to the BLA program 
who feel they have extenuating circumstances may file a written appeal in 
the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

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



Physical Education Major 



The Physical Education degree program is designed to lead to K-12 teacher 
certification in Maryland. Maryland teaching certificates are reciprocal with 
most other states. While this program is designed to provide preparation 
for individuals to teach in public school settings, it also provides an 
excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue other professional 
opportunities in sport, exercise or physical activity. Also, due to the strong 
scientific foundation of the degree program, an appropriate background is 
established for future graduate work for those who desire to continue their 
studies in any area involving human movement and sport. Many courses 
require proper sequencing and prerequisites. Early advisement with the 
program coordinator is urged to all interested students.

and have a 2.5 gpa after 45 credits to gain admission. Additional 
information is available from the College of Education. 

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. Frst. 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 



108 Management and Organization 



disciplines which include work on language. 

Work on language has provided one of the main research probes in 
philosophy and psycholo©' 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 pronunciations 
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 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 
Language." In each case, students take a common core of LING courses: 
LING 200. 240. 311-312. 321-322. Beyond this core, students must 
specialize by completing an additional nine hours in LING plus one of the 
following: either eighteen hours from selected courses in HESP, PHIL and 
PSYC, or eighteen hours in a particular language. The specializations in 
detail are: 

Graimnars and CognKton 

LING 440 — Grammars and Cognition 

Two 300/400 LING electives 

PHIL 466— Philosophy of Mind 

HESP 400 — Speech and Language Devetopment in Children 

OR HESP 498— Seminar in Psycholinguistics 

PSYC 442— Psychology of Language 

Three 300/400 electives in HESP, PHIL, PSYC or CMSC 

Grammatical Theory and a Language 

LING 410 — Grammars and Meaning and LING 411 — Comparative 

Syntax OR 

LING 420— Word Formation and LING 412— Advanced Phonolo^ 

UNG 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 
designated 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 stnjcture 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 

Nuclear Engineering deals with the practical use of nuclear energy from 
nuclear fission, fusion and radioisotope sources. The major use of nuclear 
energy is in electric power generation. Other uses are in the areas of 
chemical processing, medicine, instrumentation, and isotope trace 
analysis. The nuclear engineer is primarily concerned with the design and 
operation of ener^ 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. The nuclear engineer is 
also concerned with the effects of electronics and materials exposed to a 
radiation environment and the utilization of ionizing radiation in 
manufacturing. 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, including areas of materials, 
manufacturing, and reliability. Students may use nuclear engineering as a 
field of concentration in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree 
program. 

Requirements for Major 

The curriculum is composed of: (1) the required 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-

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. 
432, 436, 437. 445, 446. 447. 452, STAT 410. 411, 420. 
Students preparing for graduate school in mathematics should 
include MATH 403, 405, 410 and 411 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 pnmarily as a statistician, one should combine 
STAT 400-401 with at least two more statistics courses, most 
suitably. STAT 440 and STAT 450. A stronger sequence is STAT 
410. 420. 450. This offers a better understanding and wider 
knowledge of statistics and is a general purpose program (i.e.. does 
not specify one area of application). For economics applications 
STAT 400. 401. 440, 450, and MAPL 477 should be considered. 
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 
including the use of the computer. They are MAPL 460, 466, 467, 
477, and MATH 450, 475, Students interested in this area should 
take CMSC 112, 113 as early as possible, and CMSC 420, 211 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 addition 
to a solid training in mathematics, a good knowledge of at least one 
area in which mathematics is currently being applied. Concentration 
in this area is good preparation for employment in government and 
industry or for graduate study in applied mathematics. 



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, 141H. 240H. 241H. 
246H). 

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 Mathematics 
Building. 

Higginbotham Prize. A monetary award is made to an outstanding junior 
math major in the spring. 

Carol Karp award: A monetary award is made to a senior math major for an 
outstanding achievement in Logic. 

Milton Abromowitz Award: A monetary award 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 Placement 
Examination, passing standardized CLEP examinations, and through the 
department's Credit-by-Examination. Students are urged to consult with 
advisors from the Department of Mathematics to assist with proper 
placements. 

Statistics and Probability, and Applied 
Mathematics 

Courses in statistics and probability and applied mathematics are offered 
by the Department of Mathematics. These courses are open to 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, 



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.

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, 
computer 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 contacts 
with professional engineers. 

n order to provide flexibility for students to follow their own interests in 
Mechanical Engineering, students may choose to concentrate in either 
mechanical design or energy design in their senior year. In addition, seniors 
may choose from a wide variety of elective courses such as courses in 
robotics, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, electronic 
packaging, microprocessor theory, ocean engineering, finite element 
analysis, heating ventilation and air conditioning, solar energy, combustion, 
advanced fluid flow, and advanced mechanics, to list only a few. A small 



number of academically superior undergraduate students are able to 
participate in Special Topic Problems courses in which a student and 
faculty member can interact on a one-to-one basis. 

Requirements for Major 

The freshman curriculum is the same for all engineering departments and 
programs. Please consult the College of Engineering entry.

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 meteorolo^, 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, 113 or 
CHEM 105, 115. 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.

Lecturer: Norton 

The department offers three areas of emphasis: dietetics, food science, 
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 Food Science major is concerned with the application of the 
fundamental principles of the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences 
and engineering better to understand the complex and heterogeneous 
materials recognized as food. The food science program is accredited by 
the Institute of Food Technologists. 

The Human Nutrition and Foods major emphasizes the physical and 
biological sciences in relation to nutrition and the development of 
laboratory skills in these areas. Students in this major frequently elect to 
go on to graduate or medical school. 

Each of these courses of study includes a set of major subject courses 
offered primarily within the department, plus supporting courses taken 
outside the department. To graduate, students must also meet the 
requirements of the university {e.g., those specified in the CORE Program) 
and the requirements of the College of Agriculture. 



Many courses in these majors are sequential, and some are offered only 
once per year. Contact a departmental advisor for help with scheduling. 

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, FDSC, 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.

Student Organizations 



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, government, 
publishing and business management. With this in view the major in 
philosophy is designed to sen/e 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, not including PHIL 
100 or PHIL 386 

(2) PHIL 271, 310, 320, 326, 341, and at least two courses 
numbered 399 or above; 

(3) a grade of C or higher in each course counted toward the

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 



Physics 117 



a career in an interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences; students 
wtio seek a broader undergraduate program than is possible in one of the 
traditional physical sciences; students interested in meteorology; those 
who are interested in problems such as air pollution, energy usage, ozone 
depletion, global climate, groundwater pollution or nuclear energy; students 
whose interests are in the environmental, earth and atmospheric sciences; 
preprofessional students (pre-law, pre-medical); or students whose 
interests in business, technical writing, advertising or sales require a broad 
technical background. This program can also be useful for those planning 
science-oriented or technical work in the urban field; the urban studies 
courses must be taken as electives. Students contemplating this program 
as a basis for preparation for secondary school science teaching are 
advised to consult the Science Teaching Center staff of the College of 
Education for additional requirements for teacher certification. 

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

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

Curriculum 

The basic courses include MATH 140, 141 and one other math course for 
which MATH 141 is a prerequisite (11 or 12 credits); CHEM 103 and 113, 
or 105 and 115 (8 credits); PHYS 162, 262, 263 (11 credits); or PHYS 
171, 272, 273, 275, 276, 375 (14 credits); CMSC 104 (4 credits); or 
112/113 (8 credits). 

The choice of the physics sequence depends on the student's future aims 
and his/her background. PHYS 161, 262, 263 is the standard sequence 
recommended for most physical science majors. This sequence will enable 
the student to continue with intermediate level and advanced courses. 
Students desiring a strong background in physics are urged to enroll in 
PHYS 171/375. 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), astronomy, geology, 
meteorology, computer science, and one of the engineering disciplines, 
subject to certain limitations. The twenty-four distributive credits must be at 
the upper level (300/400) and shall be distributed so that at least six 
credits are earned in each of the three selected areas of concentration. A 
grade of C or better must be earned in both basic and distributive 
requirement courses. ' 

All Physical Sciences 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, i.e., 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 department for 
these purposes. 

Because of the wide choice and flexibilrty 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.

The Major 

Psychology can be classified as a biological science (Bachelor of Science 
degree) and a social science (Bachelor of Arts degree) and the department 
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 to 
the biological conditions and social factors that influence such behavior. In 
addition, the undergraduate program is arranged to provide opportun'rties 
for learning that will equip qualified students to pursue further study of 
psychology and related fields in graduate and professional schools. 
Students who are interested in the biological aspects of behavior tend to 
choose a program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, while those 
interested primarily in the impact of social factors on behavior tend to 
choose the Bachelor of Arts degree. The choice of program is made in 
consultation with an academic advisor. 

Requirements for Major 

Graduation requirements are the same for the Bachelor of Science and 
Bachelor of Arts degrees. Students must take at least 35 credits in 
Psychology including 14 credits at the 400 level. PSYC 386, 387, 478 and 
479 may not be included in those 35 required credits. The required 
courses include PSYC 100. 200 and two laboratory courses chosen from 
PSYC 400, 401, 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, 415;

Assistant Professors: Martin, Ogorodnikova (Germanic and Slavic) 

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 
Languages and Literatures. Government and Politics, History, Economics, 
Geography, Philosophy, and Sociology. Students may plan their curriculum 
so as to emphasize any one of these disciplines, thus preparing for 
graduate work either in the Russian area or in the discipline. 

Students in the program must meet the general degree requirements of the 
university and college from which they graduate. They must complete 
twenty-four hours in Russian language and literature courses selected from 
among the following equivalent courses: RUSS 101, 102, 201, 202, 301, 
302, 303, 321, 322, 401, 402, 403, and 404. in addition, students must 
complete twenty-four hours in Russian area courses 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 
Literatures, the following Russian Area courses are offered. Students 
should check the Schedule of Classes each semester. 

ECON 380 — Comparative Economic Systems

120 Sociology 



The Major 

Sociology is tlie 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 
connections 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, human 
resources management, and many other policy-making and administrative 
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 valuable 
preparation for a career choice. 

Requirements for iVIajor 

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 
requirements, 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; SOCY 100 should be taken in the 
freshman or sophomore year followed by SOCY 203. Three hours of 
mathematics (MATH 111 or its equivalent or higher) are required of majors 
as a prerequisite of SOCY 201. SOCY 202 follows SOCY 201. SOCY 441 
(stratification) and one additional upper level methods course should be 
taken by the second semester of the junior year. 

The supporting course requirement for majors is twelve hours of a coherent 
series of courses from outside of the department that relate to the 
student's major substantive*** or research interests. These courses need 
not come from the same department, but at least six hours must be taken 
at the 400 level. It is strongly recommended that the student work out an 
appropriate supporting sequence for the particular specialization with the 
department advisor.

program, careers, and other topics may be obtained from the Sociology 
Undergraduate Advisor, 2108 Art/Sociology Building, 405^389. 

Fieldwork and internship Opportunities 

Although internships are not a requirement for a major, students may wish 
to consider the internship program offered by the department or through 
the Experiential Learning Office located in Hornbake Library. Majors may 
receive up to six credits in SOCY 386 by the combination of working in an 
internship/volunteer position with an academic project in conjunction with 
the work experience. A prerequisite of 12 credits in Sociology coursework is 
also required. 

Honors 

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

Students who have an overall cumulative grade point average of at least 
3.3, a cumulative average of 3.5 in Sociology courses, and who have taken 
at least 9 credits in Sociology may apply. Transfer students with equivalent 
academic records at other accredited institutions are also eligible. 
Admission to the program will be based upon academic performance, and 
the judgment of the Undergraduate Committee whether the applicant has 
sufficient maturity and interest to successfully complete the requirements 
for graduation with Honors. Further information on the honors program is 
available from the Sociology Undergraduate Office. 



Student Organizations 



The Sociology Collective, a group open to all Sociology majors, was 
organized by a group of interested undergraduates to fill student needs 
within the Sociology community. The Collective provides information about 
topics of interest, including department activities, career planning, 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. 

Survey Research Center 

1103 Art-Sociology Building, 314-7831 

Director: Stanley Presser 

The Sun/ey Research Center was created in 1980 as a special purpose 
research facility within the behavioral and social sciences. The center 
specializes in the design of questionnaires and the conduct of surveys for 
policy purposes, and has the capacity to conduct mini-surveys, survey 
experiments, and in-depth clinical interviews. The center supports 
undergraduate and graduate education by providing both technical training 
and practical experience to students. The center also has a strong 
community service mission through the provision of technical assistance on 
sun/ey methods and sun/ey design to units of state and local governments, 
and by conducting surveys on a contract or grant basis for these 
governmental units.

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 recognized 
for many of its exemplary features. It is a five-year (10 semester. 150 
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 students 
receive specialized training in the following areas: language development; 
motor development; social-emotional development; normal human 
behavior; social and educational needs of individuals with disabilities; 
diagnostic and educational assessment procedures; instructional 
procedures and materials; curriculum development; classroom and 
behavior management; effective communication with the parents and 
families 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 IVIajor 

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 



122 Special Education 



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. Severe Disabilities (SD) 

2. Early Childhood Special Education (EC) 

3. 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 population. 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 practice 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 specifying their 
professional goals. To be accepted as a full special education major, 
students must fulfill the College of Education requirements for admission 
to Teacher Education, as well as the following departmental conditions:

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 
disabilities, and the appropriateness and clarity of the professional goal 
statement. 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 
academic 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 advisement each 
semester. Students are urged to use the Special Education Advising

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary academic program 
designed to examine the historical contributions made by women, 
reexamine and reinterpret existing data about women, and introduce 
studervts to the methodology of feminist scholarship. The program offers 
interdisciplinary core courses on women, encourages the offering of 
courses on women in other disciplines, 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 
preference.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES 



University Honors Program 

Anne Arundel Hall, 405-6771/3 

Director: Lawrence 

The University Honors Programs offer the university's most academically- 
talented students special educational and cultural resources. 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 Honors seminars and Honors versions 
of regular courses in the arts and sciences, most of which fulfill general 
education requirements. Juniors and seniors may apply to one of over 30 
departmental or college Honors programs that give them the opportunity to 
work with faculty mentors on independent research projects. Students who 
prefer to propose their own individually-designed research programs may do 



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 progress report graded Satisfactory/Fail: IVSP 318, 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.

indivlduai Studies Program (iVSP) 

2130 Mitchell Building, 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 or more 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 



Pre-professional programs are designed to provide the necessary academic 
foundation required for entrance into professional schools. Some require 
two or three years of pre-professional study before admission to 
professional school. Others 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 technology, 
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 major. These include: pre-dentistry, pre- 
law, pre-medicine, pre-optometry, pre-osteopathy, and pre-podiatry. 
Students interested in such programs may choose from a wide variety of 
academic majors across campus. The pre-professional 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 professional 
school has its own admissions requirements and criteria, whicfi 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 requirements, 
the student is urged to study the catalog of each professional school. 

All students are welcome to use the Reading Room for information on 
careers and on professional schools across the country. 

Pre-Dental Hygiene 

Advisor: Stewart 

The Pre-Dental Hygiene program is designed to prepare students for 
entrance into the UMAB Dental Hygiene Program. THIS IS NOT INTENDED 
AS A PRE-DENTAL PROGRAM. 

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 interested 
in completing the requirements for a baccalaureate degree. Completion of 
this two-year pre-professional curriculum is required before admission to 
UMAB for the two professional years.

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 requirements. 
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

should not be taken to meet this requirement. 

Three Year Arts-Dentistry Degree Program 

At the beginning of their third year, students whose performance during the 
first two years is exceptional may consider applying to the University of 
Maryland School of Dentistry after three years of college work rather than 
the usual four, under the combined arts-dentistry program. By the end of 
the third year at College Park, the student must have earned 90 academic 
credits, the last 30 of which must have been earned in residence. Within 
the 90 credits, the student must have completed all the general education 
requirements. In addition, because there are certain basic admission 
requirements which also prepare the student for the Dental Admissions 
Test, the 90 credits would include the following:

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 
admissions 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 process. 

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

and MICB 100 may not be taken to meet this requirement, tt should also 
be noted that many other schools of dentistry require mathematics 
(Calculus). Additional courses in biological sciences are suggested. 

Incoming students interested in this three-year combined degree program 
are strongly urged to consult the pre-dental advisor before registration for 
the first semester at College Park. 

Students accepted in the combined arts-dentistry program receive the B.S. 
degree (Arts-Dentistry) after satisfactory completion of the first year at the 
University of Maryland School of Dentistry upon the recommendation of the 
Dean of the School of Dentistry and approval of the University of Maryland 
at College Park. The Bachelor of Arts degree is awrded by the University of 
Maryland at College Park in August following the first year of dental school. 
The courses of the first year of dental school constitute the major; the 
courses listed above constitute the supporting area. 

Participation in the first three years of the combined degree program at 
College Park in no way guarantees admission to the University of Maryland 
School of Dentistry. Three-year students compete with four-year students 
for admission. It is therefore desirable to ensure that the work of the first 
three years be selected in such a way that the requirements of one of the 
normal College Park majors can be completed during a fourth year at 
College Park.

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 is prepared to assist students in setting career objectives, 
selecting undergraduate 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 spring of 
the junior year and/or summer of the senior 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 mVn 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 Maryland, 
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 
undergraduate degree prior to entrance into medical 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 medical 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 medical school admission requirements. 
The student's academic advisor will advise about the first two topics, while 
the pre-medical advisor will advise about medical school admission 
requirements. 

Although specific admission requirements vary somewhat from medical 
school to medical school, the undergraduate courses which constitute the 
basic admission requirements and which prepare the student for the MCAT 



Pre-Law 

1117 Hornbake Library, 314-8418 
Advisor: Michele Hotten, J.D. 

Most law schools prefer applicants with a B.A. or B.S. degree; however, in 
some cases law schools will consider truly outstanding applicants with only 
three years 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. Law schools require that the applicant take the Law 
School Admission Test (LSAT), preferably in July, October, or December of 
the academic year preceding entry into professional school. 

FourYear Program 

No particular undergraduate major or special undergraduate courses are 
prerequisites for admission into law school. Students are encouraged to 
select a major in which they have a strong interest and expect to perform 
well. Course selections should be guided by the need to develop skill which 
are essential in preparing to perform well in law school, on the Law School 
Admissions Test (LSAT), and ultimately as a lav/yer. These skill include 
imaginative and coherent thinking, critical reasoning, accurate and 
perceptive reading, and a strong command of the spoken and written 
language, including grammar. A broad liberal arts background, with 
evidence of high quality of work, will provide a strong foundation for law 
school. 



Three-Year Program 

Students with exceptional records may apply to the School of Law of the 
University of Maryland under the Arts-Law program. Upon recommendation 
by the Dean of the University of Maryland Law School and approval by 
College Park, students admitted to the program may be awarded a B.A. 
degree (Arts-Law) following the completion of at least thirty credits of the 
law program. Minimum requirements for approval from College Park are 
completion of at least ninety credits (at least 30 from College Park) 
including the following: all university and general education requirements; 
at least 18 hours in one department with six hours at the 300-400 level. 
Participation in the three-year program is very competitive and in no way 
guarantees admission to the University of Maryland School of Law. Three- 
year students compete with the four-year students for admission. 

Incoming students interested in this three-year combined-degree program 
are strongly urged to consult the pre-law advisor before registering for the 
first semester at College Park. 

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

Pre-Medical and Research Technology

successful applicant will have more, including advanced training in 
biological sciences at the 300400 level. BOTN 100, BIOL 101 and 124. 
and MICE 100 should not be taken to meet this requirement. 



The School of Nursing, located in Baltimore (UMAB). offers a four-year 
program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. Completion 
of a two-year pre-professional curriculum is required before admission to 
UMAB for the two professional years. A second-degree option is also 
offered. 



Application and Admission 

High school students who wish to enroll in the pre-nursing curriculum at 
College Park must meet admission requirements of that institution. While 
in high school, students should enroll in a college preparatory curriculum 
including biology, chemistry, and at least three unrts of college preparatory 
mathematics. 

Pre-nursing students should begin the application process for professional 
school in fall of the sophomore year. UMAB applications and instructions 
are available in the advising ofTice. Enrollment as a pre-nursing student 
does not guarantee admission to the nursing program at UMAB. 



Three-Year Arts-Medicine Degree Program 

At the beginning of their third year, students whose performance during the 
first two years is exceptional may consider applying to the University of 
Maryland School of Medicine after three years of college work rather than 
the usual four, under the combined arts-medicine program. By the end of 
the third year at College Park, the student must have eamed 90 academic 
credits, the last 30 of which must have been eamed in residence. Within 
the 90 credits, the student must have completed all the general education 
requirements. In addition, because there are certain basic admission 
requirements which also prepare the student for the Medical College 
Admissions Test (MCAT). the 90 credits would include the following:

'Although the minimum biology requirement is eight credits, the successful 
applicant will likely have more, including advanced training in biological 
sciences at the 300400 level. BOTN 104 and 105. BIOL 101 and 102. 
and MICB 100 may not be taken to meet this requirement. It should also 
be noted that the best preparation for the MCATs and for admission to 
most schools would include additional courses in biology. 

Incoming students interested in this three-year combined degree program 
are strongly urged to consult the pre-medical advisor before registration for 
the first semester at College Park. 

Students accepted in the combined arts-medicine program receive the B.S. 
degree (Arts-Medicine) after satisfactory completion of the first year at the 
University of Maryland School of Medicine upon the recommendation of the 
Dean of the School of Medicine and approval of the University of Maryland 
at College Park. The Bachelor of Arts degree is awarded by the University of 
Maryland at College Park in August following the first year of medical 
school. The courses of the first year of medical school constitute the major: 
the courses listed above constitute the supporting area. 

Participation in the first three years of the combined degree program at 
College Park in no way guarantees admission to the University of Maryland 
School of Medicine. Three-year students compete with four-year students 
for admission. It is therefore desirable to ensure that the work of the first 
three years be selected in such a way that the requirements of one of the 
normal College Park majors can be completed during a fourth year at 
College Park.
