Goals For College Park 

Our obiectives are simply stated; to enrich our 
students; to encourage them to develop the harmonious 
ideals and fine relationships which characterize 
cultured individuals; to provide an atmosphere for 
self-enlightenment; and to promote beneficial research 
for the welfare of the State, of the nation, and of the 
community of knowledge everywhere. 

Universities in General 

The contemporary university is a comprehensive 
educational institution offering many undergraduate 
programs. 

Universities as we know them m the United States 
have existed for less than a century, but their roots can 
be traced back to medieval history. The English college 
system served as the model for earliest American efforts 
at higher education. The ancient German university 
tradition was joined with this in the 1870's to form basic 
outlines of our present institutions. Practical studies 
were grafted onto these more classically and 
theoretically oriented traditions by the agricultural 
emphasis of the land grant movement. 

With the explosion of scientific and technological 
knowledge in the early twentieth century, the role of the 
university in American society attained increased 
importance, and today almost all aspects of national 
life — social, economic, scientific, and cultural — benefit 
from Its educational, research and service functions. 

College Park and the University of Maryland 

The College Park Campus of the University of Maryland 
was opened in 1859asthe Maryland Agricultural College 
under a charter secured by a group of Maryland planters 
After a disastrous fire in 1912. the State acquired control 
of the college and bore the cost of rebuilding. In 1920 
the State took over the faculty-owned University of 
Baltimore founded in 1807, merging it with the State- 
owned institution at College Park to form the present-day 
University of Maryland, 

In 1886 the Delaware Conference Academy was 
founded by the Methodist Church in Princess Anne, 
Maryland, Title to the institution was acquired by the 
State of Maryland in 1926. and it became a division of 
the University of Maryland in 1948. It was made an 
integral part of the University system with the name. 
University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) in 1970. 

A third campus, the University of Maryland Baltimore 
County (UMBO was opened at Catonsville in 1966. 

Another administrative unit of the University is 
University College (UMUC) which offers degree and 
non-degree educational programs held usually m the late 
afternoon, evening, or on weekends both at College 
Park, and elsewhere in the state, nation, and abroad. 
Administratively and academically UMUC is an integral 
part of the University, but its course offerings are not 
included in the programs of the College Park Campus

The University 




GENERAL INFORMATION / 1 




Campus Research Facilities 

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

Among the exceptional research facilities are: a 
140 MeV cyclotron; a nuclear reactor; scanning electron 
microscopes; subsonic and hypersonic wind tunnels: 
an electron ring accelerator: a precision encoder and 
pattern recognition device: a gravitational radiation 
detection system including a gravimeter on the moon; 
a quiescent plasma davice (Q machine); a psycho- 
pharmacology laboratory; three retro-reflector arrays on 
the moon; rotating tanks for laboratory studies of 
meteorological phenomena; Van de Graaff accelerators; 
a laboratory for basic behavioral research; an assortment 
of computers; and the Astronomy Observatory. 

The College Park Campus also owns and operates 
one of the largest and most sophisticated long- 
wavelength radio telescopes (located in Clark Lake, 
Calif.) and a cosmic ray laboratory (located in New 
Mexico). 

In addition to these research opportunities in the 
biological, mathematical and physical sciences, 
research programs in the behavioral sciences, social 
sciences and education exist in many bureaus and 
institutes including: the Bureau of Business and 
Economic Research, Bureau of Educational Research 
and Field Services, Bureau of Governmental Research. 
Institute for Child Study, Institute of Criminal Justice 
and Criminology, and the Institute for Urban Studies. 

Investigation in agriculture is an important aspect of 
University research. University farms total more than 
2.000 acres. Breeding, selection in farm crops, and soil 
research are a part of the program. Work in these areas 
is augmented by X-ray equipment and an electron 
microscope. 

Summer Sessions 

The College Park Campus offers two summer sessions 
of six weeks each during 1976. The first session begins 
May 24 and ends July 2. The second session runs from 
July 6 to August 13. New freshmen applicants who have 
met the regular University admission requirements for 
fall enrollment may begin their studies during the 



summer rather than await the next fall term. By taking 
advantage of this opportunity and continuing to attend 
summer sessions the time required for completion of a 
baccalaureate degree can be shortened by a year or 
more, depending upon the requirements of the chosen 
curriculum and the rate of progress 

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

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

For additional information write for a Summer 
Sessions Catalog, which may be obtained from the 
Administrative Dean for Summer Programs, College 
Park, Md. 20742.

OR, SECOND: Satisfy the requirements outlined in the 
chart below. The chart indicates the combination of 
academic grade point average and total SAT scores 
required to be eligible for admission. 

If the applicant has taken the SAT several times, the 
University will use the highest set of scores for a single 
test date. 

To determine your eligibility for admission based on 
the chart below: 

1. Calculate your academic grade point average in the 
10th and 11th grades. A list of the courses which the 
College Park Campus uses in computing the high 
school academic grade point average is provided 
below. 

2. Locate the line on the chart which indicates your 
highest total SAT scores for a single test date. For 
example, if you took the Scholastic Aptitude Test 
twice and earned the following scores: 

1st test date Verbal 50 

Math 51 
2nd test date Verbal 53 

Math 50 
you would use the test scores for the second test 
date.

OR, THIRD: Satisfy the requirements outlined in the 
chart below. The chart indicates the combination of 
academic grade point average and high school class 
rank required to be eligible for admission. 

To determine your eligibility for admission based on 
the chart below: 

1. Calculate your academic grade point average In the 
10th and 11th grades. A list of the courses which the 
College Park Campus utilizes In computing the 
academic grade point average Is provided below. 

2. Compute your class rank. Class rank is expressed as 
a percentile in the chart. To determine your 
percentile, divide the number of students in your 
graduating class Into your class rank and subtract 
the result from 1 00. For example, a student who ranks 
80 In a class of 110 would rank at the 28th percentile 
(110 divided into 80 equals 72, 100 less 72 equals 
28th percentile). 



3. Locate the line on the chart which Indicates your class 

rank percentile. 
4 If your academic grade point average Is equal to or 

higher than the grade point average listed on the 

chart beside your class rank percentile, you will be 

admitted to the College Park Campus.

stated on the transcript by the sending institution. In 
cases where there is more than one previous institution, 
the averages of all Institutions attended will be 
cumulative. 

Transfer applicants must be in good academic and 
disciplinary standing at their previous institutions to be 
eligible for possible transfer to the College Park Campus. 

Those Admissible as High School Seniors. Students 
who were eligible for admission as high school seniors 
and who are in good academic and disciplinary standing 
at their previous institutions are eligible to be considered

4 / GENERAL INFORMATION 



The Out-of-State Applicant 

The University is very pleased to consider applications 
from students who are not residents of the State of 
Maryland. Because the primary obligation of the 
University is to Maryland residents, however, the number 
of out-of-state students who can be admitted is limited 
The typical freshman applicant presents better than 
average SAT scores and high school grades. The typical 
transfer presents better than average credentials in his 
previous college-level work. 

Pre-Professional Programs 

The College Park Campus offers pre-professional 
programs in Dental Hygiene, Dentistry. Forestry. Law, 
Medical Technology. Medicine. Nursing. Osteopathy. 
Pharmacy. Physical Therapy. Radiologic Technology, 
Theology, and Veterinary Medicine. 

The College Park Campus does not offer degrees in 
these areas. The Campus does, however, offer specific 
course advisement that will prepare the student for a 
possible transfer to another branch of the University of 
Maryland or other institutions that do offer degrees in 
thesefields.Adm/ss/or7(oa pre-professional program on 
the College Park Campus does not guarantee admission 
to another branch ol the University or another institution. 

Students who have already earned more than 30 
semester hours at another college-level institution 
should contact an academic counselor for the 
pre-professional programs at College Park before 
registering at the College Park Campus. Please address 
correspondence to the pre-professional program to 
which you are applying. University of Maryland. College 
Park. Maryland 20742. 

Non-Degree (Special) Student Admission

to work toward a baccalaureate degree may be admitted 
as non-degree seeking (special) students. 

Special students who have received a baccalaureate 
degree are advised that no credit earned while enrolled 
as special students may be applied at a later date to a 
graduate program. These post-baccalaureate students 
may enroll in undergraduate courses for which they 
possess the necessary prerequisites, but may not enroll 
in courses restricted to graduate students only. 

Non-degree seeking (special) students who do not 
have a baccalaureate degree or an R.N. must submit 
transcripts and meet regular admission standards. 
Transcripts are not required from students with 
baccalaureate degrees or an R.N. 

Because of space limitation, several departments 
require permission in advance to enroll as a non-degree 
student. Please contact the Office of Admissions for 
further information. 

Transfer of Credits 

Maryland Council for Higher Education Articulation 
Agreement. The University of Maryland fully ascribes to 
the Maryland Council for Higher Education Articulation 
Agreement. The complete text of the agreement follows: 

Preamble. The initial over-reaching objective of this 
committee has been to relate in operational ways the 
undergraduate programs offered in the public sector of 
higher education in Maryland including the Community 
Colleges, the State Colleges, and the campuses of the 
University. 

The intended principal benefactor is the student who is 
best served by current information about programs and 
protected by firm arrangements among the public 
segments of higher education in Maryland which permits 
him to plan a total degree program from the outset. With 
successful academic performance, he or she can make 
uninterrupted progress even though transfer is 
involved. The measure of the plan is maximum 
transferability of the college level credits. Essentially. 



the transfer and native students are to be governed by 
the same academic rules and regulations It is 
recognized that the guidance data essential to the 
implementation of transfer arrangements go well beyond 
the scope of the present report. 

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

The institutional Interests are protected also by the 
systematic approach; they are relieved of the 
uncertainties of unplanned articulation without 
becoming production line enterprises. 

The dynamics of higher education preclude 
once-and-for-all time curriculums and perpetual 
grading and retention systems as cases in point. 
However, within the general structure of this plan there 
is opportunity for continual updating of the details. 

In more specific ways the Committee has proceeded 
(1 ) to recommend specific areas of agreement among the 
public Community Colleges, the State Colleges, and the 
State University pertaining to facilitating the transfer 
of students within the segments of public higher 
education in the State; (2) to provide for a continuous 
evaluation and review of programs, policies, procedures, 
and relationships affecting transfer of students; and 
(3) to recommend such revisions as are needed to 
promote the academic success and general well-being 
of the transfer student. 

Policies. 

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

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

(b) Procedures for reporting the progress of 
students who transfer within the State shall be 
regularized as one means of improving the 
counseling of prospective transfer students. In 
addition, each public institution of higher 
education shall establish a position of student 
transfer coordinator to assist in accomplishing 
the policies and procedures outlined in this plan. 

2. Admission requirements and curriculum 
prerequisites shall be stated explicitly. 

(a) Course and semester hour requirements which 
students must meet in order to transfer with 
upper division standing shall be clearly stated. 

(b) The establishment of articulated programs is 
required in professional and specialized 
curricula. 

(c) Students shall be strongly encouraged to 
complete the requirements for the award of an 
Associate in Arts Degree or to complete 
successfully 56 semester hours of credit before 
transfer. 

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

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

5. (a) Students from Maryland Community Colleges 

who have been awarded the Associate in Arts 
degree or who have successfully completed 56 
semester hours of credit, in either case in college 
and university-parallel courses (see par. 6). and 




GENERAL INFORMATION / 5 



who attained an overall "C" (2.0) average, shall 
be eligible for transfer. Normally they will 
transfer w/ithout loss of credits and with junior 
standing provided they have met the 
requirements and prerequisites established by 
the receiving institution within the major. 
Parenthetically, junior standing does not assure 
graduation within a two-year period of full-time 
study by a native student or by a transfer student. 

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

(c) 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 
institution awarding the degree. 

6. Credit earned at any public institution shall be 
transferable to any other public institution as long as 
that credit was designed specifically for a college or 
university-parallel program, and providing its 
acceptance is consistent with the policies of the 
receiving institution governing native students 
following the same program. Transfer of credits from 
terminal (career) programs shall be evaluated by the 
receiving institution on a course by course basis. 
Credits applied towards a specific major and 
minor shall be determined by the receiving institution 
in these cases. 

7. Credit earned in or transferred from a community 
college shall normally be limited to approximately 
half the baccalaureate degree program requirement 
and to the first two years of the undergraduate 
educational experience. 

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

9. Institutions shall notify each other as soon as 
possible of impending curriculum changes which 
may affect transferring students. When a change 
made by one institution necessitates some type of 
change at another institution, sufficient lead time 
shall be provided to effect the change with minimum 
disruption. The exchange of data concerning such 
academic matters as grading systems, student 
profiles, grading profiles, etc., is required. 

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

11. Innovative programs in all institutions are 
encouraged. Proposed programs which would have 
system-wide implications or which would affect 
student transfers to more than one institution must 
be reported to the Maryland Council for Higher 
Education. 

12. The Maryland Council for Higher Education 
Articulation Committee shall continue to review and 
evaluate current articulation policies and shall set 
additional policies as needed In addition, the 
Maryland Council will publish a brochure periodically 
listing the prerequisites within the major and 
professional programs of all public four-year colleges 
and universities in the State. 

13. In the event a transfer student believes he or she 
has not been accorded the consideration presented 
in this policy statement, he shall have the opportunity 
to have the situation explained or reconciled. 

Initially, differences of interpretation regarding the 
award of transfer credit shall be resolved between the 
student and the institution to which he is transferring. 
If a difference remains unresolved, the student shall 



present his evaluation of the situation to the 
institution from which he is transferring. 
Representatives from the two institutions shall then 
have the opportunity to resolve the differences. 

The sending institution has the right to present an 
unresolved case to the Committee on Articulation by 
addressing the Maryland Council for Higher 
Education. The Committee on Articulation shall, 
through an appointed subcommittee, receive 
relevant documentation, opinions, and 
interpretations in written form from the sending 
and receiving institution and from the student. 
Subcommittee deliberations will be confined to this 
written documentation. The full committee shall act 
on the subcommittee recommendation. 

Copies of the committee recommendation shall be 
forwarded to the institutions involved through 
the Maryland Council for Higher Education. The 
Council shall then be advised of the institutional 
action within a ten-day period. 

A complaint on transfer status must be initiated by 
the student within the first semester of his enrollment 
in the receiving institution. 
14. The State of Maryland should support four-year 
institutions so that all students in an articulated 
transfer program who are awarded an Associate 
in Arts degree from a public community college shall 
be admitted with full junior standing to a public 
four-year institution, unless either the number of 
students desiring admission exceeds the number that 
can be accommodated in a particular professional 
or specialized program or certain circumstances exist 
which require a limitation being placed on the size of 
junior programs. In such instances, admission will 
be based on criteria developed by the receiving

for the determination of in-state status for admission. 
tuition and charge-differential purposes at its meeting 
on September 21. 1973. The new regulations became 
effective with the January 1974 term.

tor meeting all requirements for m-state status and for 
submitting alt documents for reclassification is the last 
day of late registration for the semester the student

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

same as those charged for courses taken for credit at 
both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Audited

The Office of Student Aid provides advice and 
assistance in the formulation of student financial plans 
and, in cooperation with other University offices, 
participates In the awarding of scholarships, loans, and 
part-time employment to deserving students. 
Scholarships, grants and loans are awarded on the 
basis of evident academic ability and financial need. In 
making awards, consideration Is also given to character, 
achievement, participation In student activities, and to 
other attributes which may Indicate success In college, 

IVIost scholarships and grants are awarded to students 
before they enter the University. However, students who 
have completed one or more terms, and have not 
received such an award, are eligible to apply. It Is 
usually Inadvisable for a student to apply for a specific 
scholarship. Each applicant will receive consideration 
for all scholarships for which he or she Is eligible. IVlost 
scholarships are awarded to students who have earned a 
cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B) or better 



refund to which he would otherwise be entitled. The 
date used In computing refunds is the date the 
application for withdrawal is filed in the Office of 
Registrations The Stop Payment on a check does not 
constitute withdrawal. 

A request for a refund must be processed by the 
student with the Division of Business Services, 
otherwise any student account credit will automatically 
be carried over to the next semester. 

In the case of a minor, withdrawal will be permitted 
only with the written consent of the student's parent or 
guardian. 

Full time students withdrawing from the University 
will be credited for all academic fees charged to them in 
accordance with the following schedule: 

Period from Date 

Instruction Begins Refundable 

Two weeks or less 80% 

Between two and three weeks 60% 

Between three and four weeks 40% 

Between four and five weeks 20%

No part of the charges for room and board is 
refundable except when the student officially withdraws 
from the University or when he is 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 times the pro rata weekly rate after adjusting 
for a service charge. Refunds to students having full 
board contracts will be calculated In a similar manner. 
No room and/or board refunds will be made after the 
fourteenth week of the semester. 

The Food Service identification cards (FSID) must be 
surrendered to the Office of Registrations before any 
refund will be processed. 

In computing refunds to students who have received 
the benefit of scholarships and loans from University 
Funds, the computation will be made In such a way as to 
return the maximum amount to the scholarship and loan 
accounts without loss to the University. 

A student who registers as a full-time undergraduate 
will receive no refund of the General Fee when courses 
are dropped (Irrespective of the number of credit hours 
dropped) unless the student withdraws from the 
University. Hence, a student changing from full-time to 
part-time after the first day of classes receives no refund. 

A student who registers as a part-time undergraduate 
student will be given a refund of the credit hour fee for 
courses dropped during the first week of classes. No 
refund will be made for courses dropped thereafter. 

A special refund schedule applies to full-time students 
who are drafted into the Armed Services or called up as 
Reservists.

Part-time Employment 

More than one-half of the students at the University of 
Maryland earn a portion of their expenses. The Office of 
Student Aid serves without charge as a clearinghouse 
for students seeking part-time work and employers 
seeking help. Many )obs are available in the residence 
halls, dining halls, libraries, laboratories and elsewhere 
on and off campus. 

Working during college years may offer advantages in 
addition to the obvious one of financing a college 
education. The employed student has a special 
opportunity to learn new skills, to develop good work 
habits, and to learn how to get along with people. 
Sometimes part-time employment experience helps a 
student choose a vocation or is helpful later in following 
his or her vocation. 

Freshman students who do not need financial aid 
probably should not attempt to work during the first 
year at the University. However, students who need to 
work in order to attend the University are advised to 
consider employment in one of our dining halls through 
the Dining Hall Workship program. Under this program a 
student may earn approximately one-half of his or her 
board and room by working ten hours per week. After 
one successf u I semester the work load may be increased 



to full room and board at the request of the student. 

For positions other than dining service, a student 
normally cannot make arrangements for employment 
until he or she is on campus at the beginning of a school 
session. Application must be made in person and the 
applicant should have a schedule of classes and study 
hours so that he or she can seek employment best 
suited to his or her free time. 

The Office of Student Aid welcomes the opportunity to 
counsel a student about the best type of employment for 
him or her. However, securing a position through 
intelligent application and retaining that position 
through good work is the responsibility of the Individual. 



College Work- Study Program 

Under provisions of the Educational Amendments of 
1972, employment may be awarded as a means of 
financial aid to students who, (1) are in need of the 
earnings from such employment in order to pursue a 
course of study at a college or university, and (2) are 
capable of maintaining good standing in the course of 
study while employed. Under the work-study program, 
students may work up to fifteen hours per week during 
the school year and a maximum of 40 hours during the 
summer. 

A preference is given to those students with the 
greatest financial need after the application of all public 
and private grants. 



General University Requirements 

In order to provide educational breadth for all 
students, there have been established the General 
University Requirements. These requirements consist of 
30 semester hours of credit distributed among the three 
areas listed below. (For an exception to this regulation, 
see the Bachelor of General Studies Program. See page 
126.) At leasts hours must be taken in each area. At least 
9 of the 30 hours must be taken at the 300 level or above. 
None of the 30 hours may be counted toward published 
departmental, college or divisional requirements for a 
degree. /4rea A. 6-12 hours elected in the Divisions of 
Agricultural and Life Sciences; Mathematical and 
Physical Sciences and Engineering. Area B. 6-12 hours 
in the Divisions of Behavioral and Social Sciences: 
Human and Community Resources. Area C. 6-12 hours 
In the Division of Arts and Humanities. 

In meeting these area requirements, students may 
choose from among any undergraduate courses for 
which they are qualified. The student may select either 
the pass-fall or letter grading option for these courses 
as outlined on page 18. Students are urged to consult 
with academic advisors for guidance in determining 
which courses in each area best fit individual needs and 
Interests. 

Demonstration of competency In English composition: 
unless the student has been exempted from English 
composition, at least one course In the subject will be 
required. Exemption is granted If the student earns an 
acceptable score on the Illinois Rhetoric Test 
administered by the Department of English (score 
announced annually), or a score of 2 on the English 
Advanced Placement Test, or by satisfactory completion 
of a similar course at another institution. Students 
taking a course to satisfy this requirement may apply the 
credits toward the 30-hour General University 
Requirement but may not count these credits toward the 
satisfaction of the minimum 6-hour requirement in any 
of the three designated areas. Credit for such a course 
maybe In addition to the 12-hour maximum in any area. 

Students who entered the University prior to June.

responsible for making certain that the various 
categories of either set of requirements have been 
satisfied prior to certification for the degree. Assistance 
and advice may be obtained from the academic advisor 



or the Office of the Administrative Dean for 
Undergraduate Students. 

Special note for foreign students 

The foreign student Is required to take a special 
classification test In English before registering for the 
required English courses. He may be required to take 
Foreign Language 001 and 002 — English for Foreign 
Students — before registering for English 101. 

Registration 

1. To attend classes at the University of Maryland it is 
necessary to process an official registration. 
Registration Is final and official when all fees are paid. 
Instructions concerning registration are given In the 
Sctiedule of Classes Issued at the beginning of each 
new semester. 

2. The schedule adjustment period shall be the first 
10 days of classes. During that period, the student 
may drop or add courses or change sections with no 
charge. Courses dropped during this period will be 
made available to other students desiring to add. 
Courses so dropped during this registration period 
will not appear on the student's permanent record. 
Courses may be added, where space Is available, 
during this period and will appear on the student's 
permanent record along with other courses 
previously listed. After this schedule adjustment 
period, courses may not be added without special 
permission of the Instructor and the dean or provost 
of the academic unit in which the student Is enrolled. 

3. After this schedule adjustment period, all courses 
for which the student is enrolled (or subsequently 
adds) shall remain as a part of the student's 
permanent record. The student's status shall be 
considered as full-time If the number of credit hours 
enrolled at ttiis time Is 9 or more. Courses may be 
dropped with no academic penalty for a total period 
of 10 weeks In which there are classes, starting from 
the first day of classes. The permanent record will be 
marked W to Indicate this. (See Marking System 
below.) After this initial schedule adjustment period 
a charge shall be made for each course dropped or 
added. (See Schedule of Fees above.) 

4. An official class list for each course being offered is 
issued each semester to the appropriate department 
bytheOfflceof Registrations. No student is permitted 



Academic 
Regulations and 
Requirements 




GENERAL INFORMATION / 15 




to attend a class if his name does not appear on the 
class list. Instructors must report discrepancies to the 
Office of Registrations. At the end of the semester, 
the Office of Registrations issues to each department 
official grade cards. The instructors mark the final 
grades on the grade cards, sign the cards and return 
them to the Office of Registrations. 

5. Courses taken at another campus of the University 
or at another institution concurrent with regular 
registration on the College Park Campus may not be 
credited without approval in advance by the provost 
of the division from vi/hich the student expects a 
degree. The same rule applies to off-Campus 
registration or registration in the summer school of 
another institution. 

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

7. In all cases of transfer from one division to another 
on the College Park Campus, the provost of the 
receiving division, 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 
Registrations of the adjustments which are to be 
made in determining the student's progress toward 
a degree. Deletions may occur both in credits 
attempted and correspondingly in credits earned. 
This evaluation shall be made upon the student's 
initial entry into a new program, not thereafter. If a 
student transfers within one division from one 
program to another, his or her record evaluation shall 
be made by the provost in the same way as if he or 
she were transferring divisions. If the student 
subsequently transfers to a third division, the provost 
of the third division shall make a similar initial 
adjustment; courses marked "nonapplicable " by the 
second provost may become applicable in the third 
program. 

8. In the cases of non-divisional students, the Dean for 
Undergraduate Studies shall assume the 
responsibilities normally delegated to provosts. 

Degrees and Certificates 

The College Park Campus awards the following 
degrees: Bachelor of Architecture, Bachelor of Arts. 
Bachelor of General Studies, Bachelor of Music, 
Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, Master of Business 
Administration, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Education, 
Master of Library Science, Master of Music, Master of 
Science, Doctor of Business Administration, Doctor of 
Education, Doctor of Musical Arts, and Doctor of 
Philosophy. 

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

No baccalaureate degree will be awarded to a student 
who has had less than one year (30 credits) of resident 
work at the College Park Campus of the University. The 
last 30 semester credits in any curricula leading to a 
baccalaureate degree must be taken in residence at the 
College Park Campus. Candidates for the baccalaureate 
degree in curricula which combine work at College Park 
and Baltimore must complete a minimum of 30 semester 
credits at College Park. 

The requirements for graduation vary according to the 
character of work in the different colleges, divisions and 
schools. Full information regarding specific college and 
division requirements for graduation will be found m 
Section II of this catalog. 

Each candidate for a degree or certificate must file a 
formal application for it with the Office of Registrations. 
This must be done by the end of the third week of the 
semester or the second week of the summer session at 
the end of which he expects to graduate. 

Credit Unit and Load 

The semester hour, which is the unit of credit, is the 
equivalent of a subject pursued one period a week for 



one semester. Two or three periods 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 an undergraduate student to complete 
most curricula in four academic years his semester credit 
load must range from 12 to 19 hours, so that he would 
complete from 30 to 36 hours each year toward his 
degree. A student registering for more than 19 hours 
per semester must have the special approval of his or her 
dean or provost. 

Classification of Students 

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

A student is permitted to register for upper division 
courses when granted Junior Standing by his college. 
This permission shall be based upon earning a minimum 
of 56 academic hours toward his degree, completing 
such course requirements as the college may direct, and 
possessing the minimum required grade point average to 
remain in the University. 

Exceptional students having completed forty-eight 
(48) semester hours of academic credit and having the 
approval of the department involved will be permitted to 
enroll for sufficient upper division courses to complete a 
normal program. That is, such students must carry lower 
division courses to total fifty-six (56) semester hours of 
academic credits and the remainder may be in courses 
numbered in the 300-499 range. 

Examinations 

1. A final examination shall be given in every 
undergraduate course. Exceptions may be made 
with the written approval of the chairman of the 
department and the dean or provost. In order to 
avoid basing too much of the semester grade upon 
the final examination, additional tests, quizzes, term 
papers, reports and the like should be used to 
determine a student's comprehension of a course. 
The order of procedure in these matters is left to the 
discretion of departments or professors and should 
be announced to a class at the beginning of a 
course. All final examinations must be held on the 
examination days of the Official Final Examination 
Schedule. No final examination shall be given at a 
time other than that scheduled in the Official 
Examination Schedule without written permission 
of the department chairman. 

2. To expedite arrangements for commencement, 
final grades of undergraduate candidates for 
degrees are based on evaluations available at the 
time grades are required to be submitted. 

3. A file of all final examination questions must be 
kept by the chairman of each department. 

4. The chairman of each department is responsible for 
the adequate administration of examinations in 
courses under his or her jurisdiction. The deans and 
provosts should present the matter of examinations 
for consideration in staff conferences from time to 
time and investigate examination procedures in their 
respective colleges and divisions. 

5. Every examination shall be designed to require for 
its completion not more than the regularly 
scheduled period. 

6. 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 or provost has 
authorized some other procedure. 

7. Each instructor must safeguard examination 
questions and all trial sheets, drafts and stencils. 

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



16 / GENERAL INFORMATION 



9. Only clerical help approved by the department 
chairman shall be employed m the preparation or 
reproduction of tests or examination questions. 

10. Proctors must be In the examination room at least 
ten minutes before the hour of a final examination. 
Provisions should be made for proper ventilation, 
lighting and a seating plan. At least one of the 
proctors present must be sufficiently cognizant of 
the subject matter of the examination to deal 
authoritatively with inquiries arising from the 
examination. 

11. Books, papers, etc.. belonging to the student, must 
be left In a place designated by the instructor before 
the student takes his or her seat, except in such 
cases where books or work sheets are permitted. 

12. Students should be seated at least every other seat 
apart, or its equivalent, i.e., about three feet. Where 
this arrangement is not possible some means must 
be provided to protect the Integrity of the 
examination. 

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

14. If mathematical tables are required in an 
examination, they shall be furnished by the 
Instructor, If textbooks are used, this rule does not 
apply. 

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

16. Where an instructor must proctor more than 40 
students, he or she should consult the chairman of 
the department concerning proctorial assistance. 
An Instructor should consult the department 
chairman if in his or her opinion a smaller number 
of students for an examination requires the help of 
another instructor. 

17. No student who leaves an examination room will be 
permitted to return, except In unusual 
circumstances. In which case permission to do so 
must be granted by the proctor prior to the student's 
departure. 

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

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

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

Irregularities in Examinations 

1. In cases Involving charges of academic irregularities 
ordishonesty in an examination, class work or course 
requirements by an undergraduate student, the 
instructor in the course shall report to the 
instructional department chairman any Information 
received and the facts within his or her knowledge. 
If the chairman of the instructional department 
determines that there Is any sound reason for 
believing that academic dishonesty may be involved, 
he or she shall refer the matter to the dean or provost. 
The dean or provost will then confer with the 
students dean or provost and will check the 
Judiciary Office records to determine if the student 
has any record of prior offenses Involving academic 
dishonesty. The dean or provost will then consult with 
the student involved, and If the alleged academic 
dishonesty is admitted by the student and is his first 
offense of this nature, the dean or provost may 
authorize the department chairman to dispose of the 
charges, limiting the maximum penalty todlscipllnary 
probation and a grade of F in the course, provided 
the penalty Is accepted by the student in writing. In 
such case the department chairman will make a 
written report of the matter, including the action 
taken, to the student's dean or provost and to the 
Judiciary Office. 
If the case is not disposed of In the above manner. 



the dean or provost of the instructional department 
will appoint an ad hoc Committee of Academic 
Dishonesty consisting of one member from the 
faculty of the college or division administered by the 
dean or provost as chairman, one undergraduate 
student, and one member from the faculty of the 
student's college or division appointed by the dean of 
that college or division. If the student's dean or 
provost and the dean or provost administering the 
instructional department are the same, a second 
member of the faculty of the college or division 
concerned is appointed. 

The dean or provost of the instructional 
department will refer the specific report of alleged 
academic dishonesty to this ad hoc committee and 
the committee will hear the case. The hearing 
procedures before this committee will in general 
conform to those required for student judicial boards. 
The committee may impose the normal disciplinary 
actions and/or impose a grade of F in the course. 

The chairman of the committee will report its 
actions to the dean or provost of the student's college 
or division and to the Judiciary Office. The dean or 
provost of the instructional department will advise the 
student In writing of the disciplinary action of the 
committee, and also advise the student of the right to 
file an appeal to the Adjunct Committee on Student 
Conduct. 

The student may file the appeal in accordance with 
the normal procedures to the Adjunct Committee with 
the dean or provost of the Instructional department 
and the latter will forward It to the chairman of the 
Adjunct Committee. The chairman of the Adjunct 
Committee will notify the student in writing of the 
time, date, and place of the hearing. 
2. In cases involving charges of academic irregularities 
ordishonesty in an examination, class work or course 
requirements by a graduate student, the above 
procedure will be followed except that: 

a. The chairman of the Instructional department 
will refer the matter to the Dean for Graduate 
Studies. 

b. The ad hoc Committee on Academic Dishonesty 
will be appointed by the Dean for Graduate 
Studies and will consist of two members of the 
Graduate School faculty, one serving as 
chairman, and one graduate student. 

Marking System 

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

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

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

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

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

1 quality point per credit hour. 




GENERAL INFORMATION / 17 



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

7. Themar^c o^ P is a student option mark, equivalent 
to A, B. C. or D. (See Pass-Fail option below.) The 
student must inform the Office of Registrations of his 
selection of this option by the end of the schedule 
adjustment period. In computation of cumulative 
averages a mark of P will not be included In 
computation of quality points achieved lor a 
semester, a mark of P will be assigned a value of 2 
quality points per credit hour. (See Minimum 
Requirements for Retention and Graduation below.) 

8. The mark o^ S is a department option mark which 
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. In computation of quality points 
achieved /or a semesfer, amarkof Swill be assigned 
a value of 2 quality points per credit hour. 

9. The marfc / is an exceptional mark which is an 
instructor option. It is given only to a student whose 
work in a course has been qualitatively satisfactory, 
when, because of illness or other circumstances 
beyond his control, he or she has been unable to 
complete some small portion of the work of the 
course. In no case will the mark I be recorded for a 
student who has not completed the major portion 
of the work of the course. The student will remove 
the I by completing work assigned by the instructor: 
it is the student's responsibility to request 
arrangements for completion of the work. The work 
must be completed by the end of the next semester 
in which the course is again offered and in which the 
student is in attendance at the College Park 
Campus; otherwise the I becomes terminal 
(equivalent to W). Exceptions to the time period cited 
above may be granted by the student's dean or 
provost upon the written request of the student if 
circumstances warrant further delay. If the 
instructor is unavailable, the department chairman 
will, upon request of the student, make appropriate 
arrangements for the student to complete the 
course requirements. It is the responsibility of the 
instructor or department chairman concerned to 
return the appropriate supplementary grade report 
to the Office of Registrations promptly upon 
completion of the work. 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 computations. 

10. The mark W is used to denote that the student 
withdrew from a course in which he or she was 
enrolled at the end of the schedule adjustment 
period. This mark shall not be used in any 
computation, but for information and completeness 
is placed on the permanent record by the Office of 
Registrations. The Office of Registrations will 
promptly notify the instructor that the student has 
withdrawn from the course. 

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



Pass-Fail Option 

1. An undergraduate who has completed 15 or more 
credit hours at the College Park Campus and has a 
cumulative average of at least 2.00 may register for 
courses on the Pass-Fail option during any semester 
or summer session. 



2. Certain divisional requirements, major requirements 
or field of concentration requirements do not allow 
the use of the Pass-Fa// option. Certain courses within 
a department may be designated by that department 
as not available under the Pass-Fail option. It is the 
responsibility of each student electing this option to 
ascertain in conjunction with his or her dean, provost, 
department or major advisor, whether the particular 
courses will beapplicableto his degree requirements 
under the Pass-Fail option. 

3. No more than 20 percent of the College Park Campus 
credits offered toward the degree may be taken on the 
Pass-Fail option basis. 

4. 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 be automatically converted 
by the Office of Registrations to the grade P on the 
student's permanent record. The grade F will remain 
as given. The choice of grading option may be 
changed only during the schedule adjustment period 
for courses in which the student is currently 
registered. 



Credit by Examination for 
Undergraduate Studies 

1. Credit may be earned by examination for any 
undergraduate course, for which a suitable 
examination has been adopted or prepared by the 
department granting the credit. When standardized 
CLEP (College Level Examination Program) 
examinations are available they may be used. 
Students who desire to determine which courses may 
be taken by examination should consult the Office of 
the Administrative Dean for Undergraduate Studies. 

2. Any student may take a course by examination by 
obtaining an application form from the Administrative 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies, paying the requisite 
fees, and taking the examination at a time mutually 
agreeable to the student and the department 
offering the course. 

3. The applicant must be formally admitted to the 
University of fvlaryland, and be in good academic 
standing. Posting of credit, however, will be delayed 
until the student is registered. 

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

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

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

c. No course may be attempted more than twice. 

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

5. Letter grades earned on examinations to establish 
credit (if accepted by the student) are entered on the 
students transcript and used in computing the 
cumulative grade point average. A student may elect 
to take an examination for credit on a "Pass-Fail" 
basis under the normal Pass-Fail" regulations. 

6. Undergraduate students may earn by examination no 
more than half the credits required for the degree. 



18 / GENERAL INFORMATION 



7. Fees tor Credit by Examination as follows; 

a. Fees for CLEP and other standardized 
examinations are determined externally and are 
not altered by the University. These credits are 
treated as transfer credits. 

b. Full-time students are charged $30.00 for each 
course examination regardless of the number of 
credits. This fee is paid upon application for the 
examination and is not refundable regardless of 
whether or not the student .completes the 
examination. 

c. Part-time students are charged on the same 
cost-per-credit-hour basis as though they were 
taking the course in the regular manner. 

Degree Requirements 

1. It Is the responsibility of departments, colleges, 
divisions, or appropriate 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. Not later than the close of the junior 
year, the student should check with the proper 
authorities to ascertain his or her standing in this 
respect. For this purpose the student should be sure 
to preserve the copy of the semester grade report 
issued by the Office of Registrations at the close of 
each semester. 

2. In order to earn a baccalaureate degree the last 30 
semester credits of any curriculum must be taken in 
residence at the College Park Campus. Candidates 
for degrees in pre-professional combined programs 
must complete at least 30 semester hours; nothing 
stated below modifies in any way this basic 
requirement. Included in these 30 semester hours 
will be a minimum of 15 semester hours in courses 
numbered 300 or above, including at least 12 
semester hours required in the major field (in 
curricula requiring such concentration). All 
candidates for degrees should plan to take their 
senior year in residence since the advanced work of 
their major study normally occurs in the last year of 
the undergraduate course. At least 24 of the last 30 
credits must be done in residence at the College 
Park Campus; i.e., a student who at the time of 
graduation will have completed 30 semester hours in 
residence may be permitted to do not more than 6 
semester hours of the final 30 credits of record in 
another institution, provided written permission is 
secured in advance from the dean or provost. The 
student must be enrolled in the program from which 
he or she plans to graduate when registering for the 
last 15 credits of the program. These requirements 
apply also to the third year of pre-professional 
combined degree programs. 

3. While many University curricula require more 
semester hours than 120, no baccalaureate 
curriculum requires less than 120 credit hours. It is 
the student's responsibility to familiarize himself or 
herself with the requirements of the curriculum. 
The student is urged to take advantage of the advice 
on these matters in the departments, colleges, 
divisions, or Office of Academic Affairs. 

4. A student who has completed requirements for and 
has received one baccalaureate degree must 
satisfactorily complete enough additional credits so 
that the total, including all applicable credits earned 
at College Park or elsewhere, is at least 150 credits. 
In no case, however, will a second baccalaureate 
be awarded to a student who has not completed the 
last 30 credits at the University of Maryland, College 
Park. 

5. A student who wishes to receive simultaneously 
two baccalaureate degrees from the University of 
Maryland, College Park, must satisfactorily complete 
a minimum of 150 credits (161 credits if one of the 
degrees is the B.Arch. degree in the School of 
Architecture). The regularly prescribed requirements 



of both degree programs must be completed As early 
as possible and in any case no later than the 
beginning of the second semester before the 
expected date of graduation the student must file with 
the departments or programs involved and also with 
the appropriate deans and provosts a formal program 
showing the courses to be offered to meet ma)or, 
supporting area, college, division and General 
University and elective requirements of both 
curricula. No course used in either curriculum to 
satisfy a ma)or, supporting area, or college or 
division requirement may be used to satisfy the 
General University Requirements. If two divisions are 
involved in the double degree program, the student 
must designate which division is responsible for the 
maintenance of records. 

6. A general C (2.00) average is required for graduation 
in all curricula. (See Minimum Requirements for 
Retention and Graduation.) 

7 Applications for diplomas must be filed with the Office 
of Registrations during the registration period or not 
later than the end of the second week of classes of the 
regular semester or at the end of the second week of 
the summer session, at the end of which the 
candidate expects to receive his degree. Applications 
filed after the third week of classes of a regular 
semester or Friday of the second week of a summer 
session will be retained until the next semester 
(session) when degrees will be awarded. 

Attendance 

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

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

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

4. Special provision for freshmen ; the freshman year is a 
transitional year. Absences of freshmen in the basic 
freshman courses will be reported to the student's 
dean or division officer when the student has 
accumulated more than three unexcused absences. 

5. Excuses for absences (in basic freshman courses and

following up its research findings by pointing out and 
encouraging appropriate action to initiate positive 
changes whenever the findings clearly indicate that 
such changes could and should be made. 

The Cultural Study Center is located in the Main 
Administration Building, Room 2101, University of 
Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. Office number:

21 national sororities and 25 national fraternities, and the 
University administration. The Office of Greek Life 
assists in the development of programs and operations 
for the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils. Through 
the utilization of total University resources, the staff 
assists the students with leadership and management 
training, the coordination of philanthropic projects, 
membership recruitment, public relations and the 
participation of the Greek system within the total

Health Services 

The University Health Center Is located on Campus 
Drive directly across from the Student Union. Both 
graduate and undergraduate students are eligible for 
health care at the Health Center. Services provided 
include both emergency and routine medical care, 
mental health evaluation and treatment, health 
education, laboratory, x-ray, and gynecological services, 
and upon referral from a Health Center physician, 
dermatological and orthopedic services. 

Students can best be seen by calling the Health Center 
for an appointment. Students who are injured or are too 
ill to wait for an appointment can be seen on a walk-in 
basis. Walk-in patients may encounter a longer wait than 



24 / GENERAL INFORMATION 



appointment patients; however, emergencies always 
receive highest priority 

The Health Center Is open 8:00 am -5:00 p.m. 
weekdays, with a physician available in the building until 
10 p.m. tor urgent care. Weekend and summer school 
hours are posted, and emergencies are seen twenty-tour 
hours a day. During extended breaks and holidays, the 
Health Center is usually closed 

In paying the health fee at registration, a student 
becomes eligible for routine medical care and 
professional services at the Health Center. Charges 
however, are made for certain laboratory tests, all x-rays, 
casts and allergy injections. It should be noted that the 
mandatory health fee is not a form of health insurance. 

It is strongly recommended that each student maintain 
some type of Health Insurance coverage Recognizing 
that many family medical plans do not provide coverage 
for college age students, the University has negotiated 
with a local insurance company to provide a voluntary 
comprehensive student insurance program. This low 
cost policy includes coverage for illness and accident in 
the range of up to $1 .000 with a major medical provision 
of $15,000 for serious cases. These coverages are based 
generally on 80% of the direct cost. This policy provides 
benefits for hospital, surgery, emergency, laboratory, 
x-ray, and limited coverage for mental and nervous 
disorders Family and maternity options are also 
available at an increased premium.

Judicial Affairs Office 

The campus Judicial Affairs Office effects discipline of 
undergraduate and graduate students on the College 
Park Campus. The Board of Regents has established the 
framework of a judiciary program which emphasizes 
personal growth and development. The goals of judicial 
actions are largely educative and preventive. Office staff 
members review reports of alleged misconduct, contact 
those individuals involved, and. if necessary, schedule 
the case for an administrative hearing. In addition, the 
office lends limited assistance to different offices of the 
University in various legal and administrative matters, 
particularly those related to Student Affairs. The Office 
staff acts in a liaison capacity with the State Court system 
and various law enforcement and medical authorities 
as required. Office location: Second Floor North 
Administration Building. Telephone: 454-2927. 

General Policy. The University of Maryland is a large 
educational institution. It is also a community, and as 
such has the inherent right to preserve order and 
maintain stability by setting standards of conduct and 
prescribing procedures for the enforcement of those 
standards. The University of Maryland embraces the 
tenet that the exercise of individual rights must be 
accompanied by corresponding individual 
responsibility. Thus, by accepting membership in the 
University community, the student acquires rights in, as 
well as responsibilities to. the entire University 
community. 

University students are at once citizens in the larger 
community and members of an academic community. 
In the role as citizen, the student is free to exercise 
fundamental constitutional rights. Rights and 
responsibilities under local, state and national laws are 
neither abridged nor extended by status as a student 
at the University of Maryland. However, as a member of 
an academic community, he or she is expected 
particularly to meet these behavioral requirements which 
attend his/her membership and which are required by the 
University's pursuit of its objectives. The fulfillment of the 
University's purpose can be carried on only in an 
atmosphere of personal and academic freedom, one in 
which the rights and responsibilities of all members of 
the academic community are fully protected. The 
maintenance and or restoration of such an atmosphere 
is the basis for a disciplinary structure within the 
University. 



Official University sanctions will be imposed or other 
appropriate action taken only when a student's 
observable behavior distinctly and significantly 
interferes with the University s primary educational 
objectives and/or to the University's responsibilities for 
protecting the safety, welfare, rights, and property of all 
members of the University community, persons coming 
on to the University property and of the University itself. 

Students charged with violating University regulations 
or policies are guaranteed fundamental fairness in the 
handling of the charges, the conduct of hearing, the 
imposition of sanctions, and the rights of appeal. 

The University Judiciary Program. Discipline is properly 
the concern of the entire University community — the 
student body, the faculty, the staff, and the 
administration. Particular provision is made in the 
Judiciary Program for students to adjudicate cases of 
student misconduct. 

The staff of the Judicial Affairs Office trains, directs 
and advises the efforts of students, faculty and staff in 
disciplinary concerns so as to meet the unique personal 
needs and legal rights of the student involved, as well as 
responding to the requirements of the community. In 
meeting that responsibility the Office's main functions 
are (1) interviewing and counseling students involved in 
disciplinary situations: (2) processing reports and 
correspondence which deal with disciplinary matters: 
(3) scheduling, coordinating and supervising activities 
of the various Judicial Boards; (4) reviewing and/or 
approving the recommendations of these boards; 
(5) maintaining a central file of student disciplinary 
records. 

Cases may be disposed of by administrative courts, 
termed Judicial Boards, or by Office staff. Although most 
cases are handled by the staff in accordance with the 
accused student's wishes, students may choose a 
Judicial Board hearing and are encouraged to do so. The 
Judicial Boards are comprised of selected outstanding 
students who are empowered by the University to hear 
cases and recommend sanctions. 

General Statement of Student Responsibility. Students 
are expected to conduct themselves at all times in a 
manner consistent with the University responsibility of 
ensuring to all members of its community the 
opportunity to pursue their educational objectives, and 
of protecting the safety, welfare, rights, and property of 
all members of the community and of the University 
itself. 

Suspension of a Student From Class. Discipline in the 
classroom is the responsibility of the faculty member 
in charge of the class. Misbehavior which disrupts or 
interferes with the educational efficiency of a class is 
considered sufficient cause for suspending the student 
from that class. If a student is suspended from a class 
for disciplinary reasons, he/she must report immediately 
to the department chairperson. The department 
chairperson will investigate the incident and report it 
to the academic dean or division chairperson, and to the 
Judicial Affairs Office in order to determine whether past 
disciplinary action has been taken against the student. 
The department head will then write a letter to the 
student indicating the disposition of the case. The 
student is required to present this letter to his/her 
instructor for readmission to the class. A copy of this 
letter is sent to the Judicial Affairs Office for maintenance 
in its central disciplinary files. Disruption of a class by a 
student not enrolled in that class can be referred to the 
Judicial Affairs Office. Disruption by a non-student can 
be referred to the Campus Police. 

Suspension of a Student from Activities or University 
Facilities. The individual or group of individuals in 
charge of any department, division, organization, 
building, facility or any other area of the University (e.g., 
dining hall. Student Union, etc.). shall be responsible for 
student discipline within such units. The person 
responsible for each such unit may suspend the student 
or student organization from the unit. The suspended 



GENERAL INFORMATION / 25 





student or representative of the student organization will 
be referred immediately to the Judicial Affairs Office. A 
file of such action shall be maintained in the Judicial 
Affairs Office. 

Transaction Plates. Official University of Maryland 
transaction plates are issued to all registered 
undergraduate and graduate students. The plate is for 
use only by the student to whom issued and may not be 
transferred or loaned to another for any reason. 
Violations will be referred to the Judicial Affairs Office. 
Loss of the transaction plate must be reported 
immediately to the I.D. card section, Office of Admissions 
and Registrations. A charge of $3.00 is made for 
duplicate cards. 

General University Regulations Applicable to All 
Students. The General University Regulations, judicial 
board procedures and other policies and regulations are 
printed in an appendix to the Student Handbook which is 
distributed to students at the beginning of each fall 
semester. 

Orientation — Maryland Preview 

Upon admission to the University, the student will 
receive materials about Maryland Preview, the 
registration program offered by the Office of Orientation. 
The primary goals of the program are to inform the 
student about the University and provide advisement and 
registration for the first semester. Maryland Preview is 
conducted on the College Park Campus during the 
summer months and at other times during the year. Each 
freshman will attend with a group of future classmates. 

The new student will engage in: 

1. Formal and informal discussions about University 
life, and the standards of performance that the 
University expects. 

2. A conference with an academic advisor who will assist 
him or her in selecting and registering for courses. 

Through this program, the entering student receives a 
personalized and individual introduction to the 
University. Many of the sessions offered will be presented 
by undergraduate student advisors who have been 
carefully selected and trained to assist new students. 

All entering freshmen are urged to attend. 

Transfer Preview. A special program is offered for 
transfer students. This program includes a conference 
with advisors to explain academic requirements, 
registration for classes, and a general orientation to 
Campus itself. The program is particularly geared to the 
needs of upperclassmen and their special concerns. 

Parent Preview. Running concurrently with the summer 
programs for freshmen and transfer students is an 
orientation program for the parents of new students. 
Here, parents have an opportunity to learn about the 
academic, cultural, and social aspects of University life 
from administrators and staff, as well as from the student 
advisors who lead the student groups. 

Religious Programs 

A broad range of religious traditions is represented by 
the several chaplains and religious advisors at the 
University. Individually and cooperatively, they offer 
many services including counseling, worship, study 
opportunities here and abroad, personal growth groups, 
and opportunities for service and involvement. Office 
location: University Memorial Chapel. Telephone: 
454-5783. 

Resident Life 

This office administers, supervises and coordinates 
all aspects of the Campus residence halls facilities, 
including management operation and educational- 
social-recreational programming. 



Accommodations are in semi-autonomous residential 
communities which vary considerably with respect to 
hall architecture and facilities available. Each 
community is directed by a full-time professional and a 
staff of full- and part-time professional and 
para-professional personnel who help to insure that 
community programming, physical plant and 
administrative needs are met. Staff work closely with 
supporting Campus agencies to provide services in 
accord with University and State expectations. Each 
community enjoys considerable freedom to develop in a 
manner which reflects the personalities, interests and 
needs of its residents. 

Spaces made available by departing upperclass- 
persons are available for new to housing students. Each 
year the number of spaces available to freshpersons 
and transfer students is limited and may not exceed 
2,500 spaces. Application is required, though any 
assumption that admission to the Campus or submission 
of a residence halls application guarantees or implies 
housing space is unwarranted. The likelihood of 
receiving a space by the start of classes and the 
advisability of pursuing other housing alternatives is 
provided each individual shortly after application. 

Inquiries should be directed to Information Unit, 
Office of Resident Life, 3117 North Administration 
Building, University of Maryland, College Park. 20742, 
(301) 454-2711. 

The Maryland Student Union 

The Maryland Student Union is the community center 
of the College Park Campus for all members of the 
University — students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their 
guests. The Union is not just a building, it is also an 
organization and a program. The Union provides for the 
services, conveniences, and amenities of the University. 

The Union was built and furnished without the help of 
state or federal funds. The building and furnishings with 
each stage of construction came from student fees. 
Funds for operating expenses and additional furnishings 
came from student fees and various Union revenue 
producing avenues. The Union pays for its own utilities 
and maintenance expenses. It is, therefore, a 
self-supporting enterprise.

Bachelor of General Studies Degree Program 
WHAT IS THE BGS PROGRAM? The Bachelor of 
General Studies degree (BGS) differs from other degrees 
in that it is a degree without a concentration in a specific 
discipline or department. It permits the student to obtain 
an education in as broad a set of disciplines or thought 
patterns as are offered at the College Park Campus, 
without insisting that he or she adhere to a previously 
defined curriculum with a departmental or divisional 
orientation. 

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS? To receive a 
Bachelor of General Studies degree, a student must 
satisfy the following requirements: 

1. A minimum of 120 credits must be accumulated with 
a grade point average of at least 2.0 in all courses. 

2. No more than 30 credits in any one department may be 
applied toward the required 120 credits. 

3. The courses taken must be distributed over at least 
three divisions with a maximum of 60 credits in any 
onedivisioncounted toward the required 120 credits. 

4. At least 45 credits must be taken at the upper level 
(courses numbered 300 or higher): a 2.0 average must 
be obtained in all upper level courses. 

5. The student must be registered as only a Bachelor of 
General Studies major for at least the last 30 credits 
immediately preceding the awarding of the degree. 

6. The student pursuing the BGS program shall be 
advised by a faculty member either appointed by or 
acceptable to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies. 

No other University degree requirements, such as 
General University Requirements, physical education, 
health, etc. apply to the BGS. 

WHAT KIND OF STUDENTS ARE IN THE BGS 
PROGRAM? fvlany of the over 400 BGS students are 
genuinely exploratory students — people who wish the 
broadest possible education and who wish to pick and 
choose their courses from a wide range of disciplines. 
Others are interested in a particular set of courses 
which are not available within a given major, and are 
essentially designing their own ma|or" within the broad 
framework of the BGS. Most of the BGS students are 
interested in the flexibility which the BGS program 
allows them. 



WHAT HAPPENS TO BGS STUDENTS WHEN THEY 
GRADUATE? The BGS is not designed to meet graduate 
school admission requirements or professional 
employment requirements. Therefore, the reception of 
an individual student by graduate schools and employers 
depends on the student, what kind of a BGS program he 
or she has put together, and what type of school or 
employment he or she is applying for A recent study of 
thef irst BGS graduates indicated that a large percentage 
went into business or government, some went on to 
professional school and the remainder were in a variety 
of occupations. 

HOW DO I APPLY? See Dr. Judith Sorum, Assistant 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies, in 1 1 1 5 Undergraduate 
Library, X2530/31. 

Office of Experiential Learning Programs. The Office of 
Experiential Learning Programs (ELP) supervises three 
types of learning opportunities involving participation in 
the work of the community and the Campus. These 
programs encourage students to test classroom learning 
in work situations, explore career possibilities by direct 
participation, or enhance their personal development 
through work and volunteer experiences. The programs 
include: 

1. Cooperative Education Program in Liberal Arts and 
Business. This program allows students to alternate 
on-campus study with between sixteen and twenty weeks 
of paid work experience in business, industry, and 
government agencies. To be eligible, students must have 
completed 36 hours of undergraduate work with a 2.0 
grade point average. It should be noted, however, that 
most employers select on a competitive basis. 

2. Internships and Field Experience Courses. Many 
academic departments offer opportunities for students 
to earn academic credit (usually 3-6 hours) through 
participation in activities in the community, 
accompanied by an appropriate academic product 
stemming from the experience ELP will help students to 
match their interests with existing courses and 
community placements and find departments willing to 
sponsor activities proposed by students. The Office also 
assists departments in finding suitable placements for 
students. 

3. PACE (People Active in Community Effort). PACE is a 
student-organized program which provides 
educationally valuable volunteer community service 
projects. With funding from the Student Government 
Association, PACE arranges for transportation to the 
volunteer site, develops student leadership, and acts as a 
liaison with the community. PACE'S focus is upon 
fulfilling students' needs through service/learning 
projects. 

Information about all three of these programs may be 
obtained through the Office of Experiential Learning 
Programs. Room 121 1A Student Union, 4767 or 4938. 

Individual Studies Program 

WHAT IS INDIVIDUAL STUDIES? Individual Studies is 
often called the design your own ma|or " program. It is 
open to students at UMCP who can, with faculty 
assistance, design a sequence of formal and/or informal 
learning experiences, satisfactory completion of which 
is appropriate for the awarding of a BA or BS degree, 
and whose educational goals cannot be reasonably 
achieved within an existing UMCP curriculum A student 
who graduates in the program is awarded a degree in 
Individual Studies, with the name of the individualized 
major printed on the transcript. 

HOW DO I APPLY? You apply by submitting a written 
prospectus which has the support and approval of a 
faculty tutor, to the Individual Studies Review 
Committee. Once the prospectus is approved by the 
committee, it becomes your contract ' for a degree. It 
is to the Individual Studies student what the catalog is to 
other majors. 



28 / GENERAL INFORMATION 



WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS? Students in the 
Individual Studies Program must: 

1. Complete at least 120 academic credits with a 
grade point average of C" or better. 

2. Meet the General University Requirements. 

3. Include in their program at least 12 hours of formal 
course work numbered 300 or above, not Including 
the General University Requirements nor IVSP 319 
(tutorial report) 

4 Include in their program one credit of IVSP 319 
(tutorial report) for each semester in which they are 
full-time students in the program. 

5. If the program is 40°'o or more informal learning

by the Individual Studies Review Committee, made up of 

three faculty members, prior to the final thirty semester 

hours of the proposed curriculum. 

WHAT ABOUT CHANGES? The student is free to change 
into or out of the Individual Studies Program at any time 
within the limits of the regulations for admission which 
are listed above. To assure assignment of proper credit 
for students transferring out of the Individual Studies 
Program, all work will be graded on a semester-by- 
semester basis.

changing staff at the University. Any change in program 
must be submitted in writing to the Assistant Dean for 
Undergraduate Studies and approved in order to become 
part of the students program. 

IS INDIVIDUAL STUDIES AN HONORS PROGRAM? No. 
ISP is open to any student who wishes to design his or 
her own major. There is no grade point requirement for 
admission. The students who are in the program tend to 
be rather clear about their academic goals, 
self-motivated, able to work without a lot of direct 
supervision, and particularly interested in out-of- 
classroom learning experiences (research, directed 
studies, internships, etc.). 

WHERE DO I START? Students interested in applying to 
the program should discuss their ideas for a program 
with Dr. Judith Sorum, Assistant Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies, Room 1115 Undergraduate Library, X2530/31. 

MINORITY STUDENT EDUCATION. The Office of 
Minority Student Education was officially created on 
July 1. 1972 as a result of proposals and 
recommendations submitted to the chancellor from the 
Campus Black Community and the Study Commission

of man's most critical problems concerning adequate 
amounts and quality of food, and tfie quality of tfie 
environment in whicti he lives, are important missions 
of tfie College. 

This original College of the University of IVIaryland 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 Act of 1862. 

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

Advantages of Location and Facilities. Educational 
opportunities in the College of Agriculture are enhanced 
by the nearby location of several research units of the 
federal government. Of particular interest is the 
Agricultural Research Center at Beltsville and the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture Headquarters in Washington. 
D.C. The National Agricultural Library at Beltsville is an 
important resource. 

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

Instruction in the basic biological and physical 
sciences, social sciences and engineering principles is 
conducted in well-designed classrooms and labora- 
tories. The application of basic principles to practical 
situations is demonstrated for the student in numerous 
ways. 

Modern greenhouses are available for breeding and 
propagation of a wide variety of plants, work on the 
control of weeds and improved cultural practices. 

Herds of dairy and beef cattle and flocks of poultry 
are kept on the Campus for teaching and research 
purposes. 

Several operating research farms, located in central 
Maryland, southern Maryland and on the Eastern Shore, 
support the educational programs in Agriculture by 
providing locations where important crops, animals and 
poultry can be grown and maintained under practical 
and research conditions. These farms add an important 
dimension to the courses offered in Agriculture. Data 
from these operations and from cooperating producers 
and processors of agricultural products are utilized by 
students interested in economics, teaching, engineer- 
ing, and conservation, as they relate to agriculture, as 
well as by those concerned with biology or management 
of agricultural crops and animals. 

General Information. The College of Agriculture offers 
a variety of four year programs leading to the Bachelor 
of Science degree. 

Today's agriculture is a highly complex and extremely 
efficient industry which includes supplies and services 
used in agricultural production, the production process, 
and the marketing, processing and distribution of 
products to meet the consumers' needs and wants. 

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

Previous training in agriculture Is not a prerequisite 
for study in the College of Agriculture. Careers for men 
and women with rural, suburban or urban backgrounds 
are available in agriculture and its allied industries. 

Graduates of the College of Agriculture have an 
adequate educational background for careers and 
continued learning after college in business, production, 



teaching, research, extension, and many other 
professional fields.

The Agricultural Experiment Station. The Maryland 
Agricultural Experiment Station is currently conducting 
more than 200 research projects. These are conducted 
by faculty who supervise and direct research assistants, 
graduate and undergraduate students and technicians. 
The research may be conducted in laboratories or at one 
of the nine field locations throughout Maryland operated 
by the Experiment Station or even in fields, herds or 
flocks of cooperating farmers. 

The overall objective of the Experiment Station is to 
enhance all aspects of Maryland agriculture for the 
benefit of farmers, agribusiness and consumers through 
optimal utilization, conservation and protection of soil 
and water resources. Genetic principles are studied and 
applied in the improvement of turf and ornamentals, 
vegetable crops, field crops, poultry, dairy and other 
animals. Similarly, pathological principles are of concern 
in improvement of methods of identification, prevention 
and/or control of plant and animal diseases. Bio- 
chemistry plays an important role in evaluating the 
nutritional quality of crops produced, the efficiency of 
feed conversion by poultry and animals or the quality 
of plant and animal products for human consumption. 
Research in progress is concerned with improvement 
of processing systems to enhance food quality on one 
hand and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and 
means of remedying these on the other. Also directly in 
the consumer area is the study of clothing quality. 



Improved production techniques including waste 
utilization or disposal require studies involving soil- 
moisture-plant relationships and plant, bird, or animal- 
environment relationships and also studies of the 
applications of engineering for producing or 
maintaining the optimal environment for biological 
systems 

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

The socio-economics of changing agricultural 
systems are a major research area and increasing 
attention is being oriented towards rural development, 
including resource utilization for non-farm residents 
and recreation 

The Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station was 
established in 1888 to comply with the Hatch Act of 1887 
authorizing the establishment of an agricultural 
experiment station at the Land Grant Colleges Actually, 
the charter of the Maryland Agricultural College in 1856 
specifically authorized establishment of a demonstration 
farm. The Station is supported by federal funds under 
the Hatch Act as amended. State appropriations, grants 
and contracts with State and federal agencies and by 
gifts or other support from individuals and 
agribusinesses. 

Cooperative Extension Service. Cooperative Extension 
work, established by State and federal laws in 1914. 
extends practical information beyond the classrooms of 
the University of Maryland to young people and adults — 
both rural and urban — throughout the State of 
Maryland Major program areas include agriculture and 
environment, family living, youth development, and 
community development. 

The educational endeavors of the Cooperative 
Extension Service are financed jointly by federal. State 
and county governments In each county and in 
Baltimore City competent extension agents conduct 
educational work in program areas consistent with the 
needs of the citizenry and as funds permit. The county 
staff is supported by a faculty of specialists in the 
Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Through 
their mutual efforts, local people are assisted in finding 
solutions to their problems. 

The Cooperative Extension Service works in close 
harmony and association with many groups and 
organizations. In addition to work on farms and with 
agri-businesses, extension programs are aimed at many 
rural non-farm and urban family consumers. Thousands 
of boys and girls gain leadership knowledge and 
experience and are provided practical educational 
instruction in 4-H clubs and other youth groups 

To accomplish its mission, the Cooperative Extension 
Service works closely with teaching and research faculty 
of the University and with units of the University outside 
of agriculture, as well as State and federal agencies and 
private groups. Thousands of short courses, workshops 
and conferences in various fields of interest are 
conducted on the College Park Campus and at other 
locations throughout the State. A wide variety of 
publications and radio and television are used 
extensively to reach. the people of Maryland.

Agricultural engineering utilizes both the physical and 
biological sciences to help meet the needs of our 
increasing world population for food, natural fiber and 
improvement or maintenance o'. the environment. 
Scientific and engineering principles are applied to the 
conservation and utilization of soil and water resources 
for food production and recreation; to the utilization of 
energy to improve labor efficiency and to reduce 
laborious and menial tasks: to the design of structures 
and equipment for housing or handling of plants and 
animals to optimize growth potential; to the design of 
residences to improve the standard of living for the rural 
population; to the development of methods and 
equipment to maintain or increase the quality of food and 
natural fiber; to the flow of supplies and equipment to 
the agricultural and aquacultural production units; and 
to theflow of products from the production units and the 
processing plants to the consumer. Agricultural 
engineers place emphasis on maintaining a high quality 
environment as they work toward developing efficient 
and economical engineering solutions. 

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

Instruction is offered in crop science and soil science. 
A turf and urban agronomy option is offered under crop 
science and a conservation of soil, water and 
environment option is offered under soil science These 
options appeal to students who are interested in urban 
problems or environmental science. 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 bachelors degree level as a specialist 
with park and planning commissions, road commissions, 
extension service, soil conservation service, and other 
governmental agencies. Many graduates with the 
bachelor's degree are also employed by private 
corporations such as golf courses and seed, fertilizer, 
chemical, and farm equipment companies. 

Agronomy students who follow the Journalism- 
Science Communication option are prepared to enter 
the field of science communication. Opportunities in 
this area are challenging and diverse Students who 
are interested in public relations may find employment 
with industry or governmental agencies. Others may 
become writers and, in some cases, science editors for 
newspapers, publishing houses, radio, and television. 
Technical and professional journals hire students 
trained in this field as editors and writers. Also, this 
training is valuable to students who find employment in 
university extension programs, as a large part of their 
work involves written communication with the public. 

Students completing graduate programs are prepared 
for college teaching and research, or research and 
management positions with industry and governmental 
agencies. 

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

The horticulturist combines a knowledge of the basic 
sciences with an intimate knowledge of plants and their 
requirements in an effort to help meet the food needs 
of the world population and to help beautify mans 
surroundings. The horticulturist, specifically, is 
involved with fruit production (pomology), vegetable 
production (olericulture), greenhouse plant production 
(floriculture), production of ornamental trees and 
shrubs, post-harvest horticulture, and the tasteful 
planning of gardens and ornamental plantings 
(landscape design). Horicultural principles are essential 
to designing the landscape for improvement of the 
human environment. Post-harvest horticulture is 
involved with the storage and transportation of 
horticultural products until they reach the consumer. 

The curriculum in Horticulture prepares students for 
a future in commercial production of the horticultural 
crops, and for employment in the horticultural industries 
such as fruit and vegetable processing, seed production 
and sales, agricultural chemical sales and service, florist 
shops and garden centers, and as horticulturists for 
parks, highway systems, botanic gardens and 
arboretums. 

Majors may prepare for work with handicapped 
persons as horticultural therapists by electing 
appropriate courses in the social sciences and in 
recreation. The Horticultural Education option Is 
designed for those who wish to teach horticulture in the 
secondary schools It prepares the graduate with a basic 
knowledge of horticulture and includes the courses 
required for certification to teach in Maryland. 

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

Pre-Theology 

The College of Agriculture cooperates with the officers 
of any theological seminary who desire to urge 
prospective students to pursue courses in agriculture as 
a preparation for the rural ministry. Such pre- 
theological students may enroll for a semester or more 
or for the usual four-year program of the College. In 
either case they should enroll as members of the general 
curriculum in the College of Agriculture. Students 
desiring to pursue a pre-theological program in the 
College of Agriculture of the University of Maryland 
should consult with the president or admissions officer 
of the theological seminary which they expect to attend. 

Pre- Veterinary Medicine 

The pre-veterinary medicine program is based upon 
the requirements established by the Colleges of 
Veterinary Medicine where students who are residents 
of Maryland may be offered admission. 

There is no College of Veterinary Medicine in 
Maryland. However, the State of Maryland participates 
under an agreement with the Southern Regional 
Education Board for the education of Maryland residents 
in veterinary medicine. Up to twelve spaces a year in the 
College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of 
Georgia, and up to six places in the four years at 
Tuskegee Institute are reserved for qualified Maryland 
residents who may be offered admission by the 
respective institutions. 



The University of Maryland also has an agreement Pr6-Dr0f6SSi0n3l 

with The Ohio State University under which a maximum Prnaramc uuithin 
of six Maryland residents may be offered admission III Y^n '"'"' 

each year by the College of Veterinary Medicine at the College 

Ohio State University of AgrJCUlture 

The Colleges of Veterinary Medicine at the University 
of Georgia, The Ohio State University and Tuskegee 
Institute have the final and exclusive authority on all 
matters related to admission. 

It is not possible for Colleges of Veterinary Medicine 
to admit all eligible applicants. Therefore, pre- 
protessional students are urged to consider alternate 
objectives in a program leading to the B.S. degree. 

Undergraduate students who have completed three 
years in the pre-veterinary program in the University of 
Maryland College of Agriculture and have not been 
admitted to a college of veterinary medicine may transfer 
to one of the curriculums at the University of Maryland 
in order to complete the B.S. degree. 

No specific major is required for favorable 
consideration by a veterinary school admissions 
committee. 

The course requirements listed represent the 
minimum requirements tor admission to the Colleges of

Institute of Applied Agriculture 
Two-Year Program. 

The programs of study offered by the Institute of 
Applied Agriculture will assist men and women 
interested in preparing for specific jobs in the broad 
fields of applied science and business in agriculture. 

Three major programs are currently offered: 

1. Business Farming — technical training for farm 
operation, or a career in business providing supplies and 
services to those in production agriculture, 

2. Turfgrass and Golf Course Management — 
concentrates on the technical and management skills 
required for professional turf management and for 
occupations in the rapidly expanding field of turf 
maintenance. 

3. Ornamental Horticulture and Nursery 
Management — a program leading toward several 
occupational choices including greenhouse 
management, nursery management, landscape 
management, and floral shop management. 

Courses taken in these programs are not transferable 
for degree credits at the University of Maryland. Students 
satisfactorily completing two years of study are 
awarded an appropriate certificate. For additional 
information write: Director, Institute of Applied 
Agriculture, University of Maryland, College Park, 
Maryland 20742. 

Biological Sciences Program 

This program is designed for the student who is 
interested in a broader education in the biological 
sciences than is available in the programs for majors 
in the various departments of the Division of Agricultural 
and Life Sciences. The program is appropriate for the 
entering student who wishes to explore the various areas 
of biology before specializing in the program offered 
by a single department, or for the student desiring to 
specialize in a discipline which can best be constituted 
by the selection of courses from the various departments 
in the biological sciences. 

Preparation for graduate study in a specialized area 
of biology is readily accomplished under this program 
by the judicious selection of junior-senior level courses 
in the proposed area of graduate concentration. Where 
the proposed area of graduate specialization lies within 
a single departmental discipline, it may be desirable for 
the student to transfer to the program for majors in that 
department. 

Advising of students in this curriculum will be 
coordinated in a central advising office to be established 
by the Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences. The 
student in this program may emphasize work in animal 
science, botany, entomology, microbiology, or zoology 
and will be advised by the department or curriculum 
in which most of the work is taken. Alternatively, the 
student may concentrate in a specialized area of biology 
(e.g. ecology, genetics or physiology) which cuts across 
departmental boundaries. In this case an advisor 
competent in the area of emphasis will be selected. For 
careful planning and advising, the area of emphasis 
should be chosen as soon as possible, and must be 
declared before registration for the |unior year. Changes 
in emphasis normally cannot be made during the senior 
year without delaying graduation Students in this 
program who are also attempting to meet the 
requirements of a pre-professional program should also 
seek advice from advisers for the respective programs. 
Students in the program who wish to prepare for 
secondary school science leaching should contact the 
staff of the Science Teaching Center of the College of 
Education for information concerning requirements for 
certification. 



Curriculum. All students in the Biological Sciences 
Program must satisfy the requirements of the University 
of Maryland at College Park and the requirements of the

The curriculum in chemistry is centered around a 
basic core of 30 credits (18 lower-division and 12 
upper-division) in chemistry. An additional two credits 
must be chosen from among other upper-division 
courses in chemistry. 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. Students 
wishing a degree program specifically certified by the 
American Chemical Society must elect more than the 
minimum number of elective credits in chemistry and 
must choose judiciously among the upper-division 
courses offered. In addition, the ACS-certified degree 
program presently recommends German or Russian. 

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 Division of Agricultural and Life

Geology 

Associate Professor and Acting Chairman: Siegrist. 

Associate Professors: Segovia, Sommer, Stifel. 

Weidner. 

Assistant Professors: Ridky, Wylie. 

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. This study directs its attention at 
the earth's internal structure, materials, chemical and 
physical processes and its physical and biological 
history. Geology concerns itself with the application of 
geological principles and with application of physics. 
chemistry, biology and mathematics to the 
understanding of our planet. 

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

Geological scientists find employment in government, 
industrial and academic establishments. In general, 
graduate training is expected for advancement to the 
most rewarding positions. Most industrial positions 
require a MS. degree. Geology is en|oying a strong 
employment outlook at the present because of our 
mineral, fuel and environmental concerns. At this time, 
students with the B S , particularly those with 
training in geophysics, can find satisfactory 
employment However, graduate school is strongly 
recommended for those students desiring a professional 
career in the geosciences 

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

The Geology curricula is designed to meet the 
requirements of industry, graduate school and 
government. However, students may select, at their 
option, geology electives that are designed for a 
particular interest, rather than for the broad needs of a 
professional career. Courses required for the 8 3. in 
Geology are listed below;

The Department of Microbiology has as its primary 
aim providing the student with thorough and rigorous 
training in microbiology. This entails knowledge of the 
basic concepts of bacterial cytology, physiology, 
taxonomy, metabolism, and genetics, as well as an 
understanding of the biology of infectious disease, 
immunology, general virology, and various applications 
of microbiological principles to public health and 
industrial processes in addition, the department 
pursues a broad and vigorous program of basic 
research, and encourages original thought and 
investigation in the above-mentioned areas. 

The department also provides desirable courses for 
students majoring in allied departments who wish to 
obtain vital, supplementary information. Every effort has 
been made to present the subject matter of microbiology 
as a basic core of material that is pertinent to all 
biological sciences. 

The curriculum outlined below, which leads to a 
bachelor s degree, includes the basic courses in 
microbiology and allied fields. 

A student planning a major in microbiology should 
consult a departmental advisor as soon as possible 
after deciding upon this action. The supporting courses 
should be chosen only from the biological and physical 
sciences 

No course with a grade less than C may be used to 
satisfy major requirements. 

Information concerning the Honors Program may be 
obtained in the departmental office. 

The major in the department consists of a minimum of 
twenty-four semester hours, including MICB 200 — 
General Microbiology (4), and MICB 440 — Pathogenic

I. Description of Program. The Department of Zoology 
offers a program leading to a B.S with a major in 
Zoology. The program is planned to give each student 
an appreciation of the diversity of the problems studied 
by zoologists and an opportunity to explore, in detail, 
the kinds of problems delineating the specialized fields 
of Zoology and the nature of observation and 
experimentation appropriate to investigations within 
these fields The requirements of 26 hours in Zoology, 
including one course in each of four broad areas, 
together with supporting courses in Chemistry, 
Mathematics, and Physics, permit students to develop 
their interests in the general field of Zoology or to 
concentrate in a special area Courses in Zoology 
satisfying the broad area requirements are offered at the 
sophomore and junior-senior levels and may be taken 
upon completion of the prerequisites for a chosen 
course. Majors are urged to complete the required 
supporting course in Chemistry, Mathematics, and 
Physics as early as possible since these courses are 
prerequisites for many courses in Zoology. 

II. Curriculum For Zoology Majors. There are no 
specified courses in zoology required of all majors. 
ZOOL 101, General Zoology, is available for students 
who need an introductory course before proceeding to 
more advanced zoology courses. Competence 
equivalent to the successful completion of ZOOL 101 is 
prerequisite to all zoology courses that are accepted for 
credit toward the major. Credits earned in ZOOL 101 are 
not accepted for credit toward the major 

All majors are required to complete a minimum of 26 
credit hours in Zoology with an average grade of C. 
Fourteen of the twenty-six hours must be earned in 
300-400 level courses and two of these courses must 
have accompanying laboratories. Most Zoology courses 
that are accepted for credit toward the major have been 
grouped into four broad areas based upon the level of 
biological organization studied. The areas and their 
corresponding courses are: I, cells and cell organelles; 
II, tissues, organs and organ systems; III, organisms; and 
IV, populations and communities of organisms. One 
3 or 4 credit course in each of these areas is required. 
ZOOL 271 must accompany ZOOL 270, and ZOOL 471 
must accompany ZOOL 470 for these courses to fulfill 
the Area IV requirement.

Division Requirements 

Note: These requirements are to apply until new 
policies of the Division of Arts and Humanities are 
published. , 



Foreign Language. Demonstration of proficiency 
equivalent to the level achieved by completion of the 
first 12 semester hours study of a foreign language, 
a. This requirement may be met by students who have 
successfully completed level three in high school in 
one foreign language or level two in each of two 
foreign languages, 
b A student who does not meet the requirements under 
paragraph a, must show proficiency through the 
intermediate level of college language. This may be 
done as follows: 

1. Take the placement examination in the language 
in which he has background, begin at the college 
level indicated by the test, and continue through 
the intermediate level; or 

2. Pass the proficiency test for intermediate level 
given by the respective language departments 

The languages which may be offered to meet this 
requirement are Chinese. French, German, Greek. 
Hebrew. Italian. Japanese, Latin. Portuguese. Russian. 
Spanish, and Swahili. 

Normally a student shall not be permitted to repeat a 
foreign language course below the 200 level for credit if 
he has successfully completed a higher numbered 
course than the one he wishes to repeat. 

Speech. Successful completion of one of the following 
courses in speech communication: SPCH 100, 107, 125, 
220, or 230. Students who have successfully completed 
a full unit of speech in high school shall be deemed to 
have satisfied the speech requirement. 

Major Requirements. Each student chooses a field of 
concentration (major). He may make this choice as early 
as he wishes; however, once he has earned 56 hours of 
acceptable credit he must choose a major before his 
next registration. 

In programs leading to the baccalaureate degree, the 
student must also have a secondary field of 
concentration (supporting courses). The courses 
constituting the major and the supporting courses must 
conform to the requirements of the department in 
which the student majors. 

The student must have an average of not less than C 
in the introductory courses in the field in which he 
intends to major. 

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

Each major program includes a group of "supporting 
courses," formerly called minors, that are designed to 
contribute a better understanding of the major. The 
nature and number of these courses are under the 
control of the major department. 

The average grade of the work taken for the major 
must be at least C; some departments will count toward 
satisfaction of the major requirement no course 
completed with a grade of less than C. The average grade 
of the work taken in the major and supporting courses 
combined must be at least C. A general average of C in 
courses taken at the University of Maryland is required 
for graduation. 

Courses taken to fulfill General University 
Requirements may not be used toward divisional, major, 
or supporting course requirements. 



Advisors. Freshmen students will be assigned faculty 
advisors to assist them in the selection of courses and 
thechoiceof a major After selecting a major, sophomore 
students and above will be advised by faculty members 
in the major department. 

Students in the School of Architecture and College of 
Journalism should consult their deans. 

Certification of High School Teachers. If courses are 
properly chosen in the field of education, a prospective 
high school teacher can prepare for high school 
positions, with a major and supporting courses in certain 
of the departments of this Division. A student who wishes 
to work for a teachers certificate must consult the 
College of Education in the second semester of the 
sophomore year and apply for admission to the Teacher 
Education" program 

Honors. Departmental Honors Programs are offered in 
the Departments of English. French. German, History, 
Music, Philosophy, Spanish, and Speech Departmental 
Honors Programs are administered by an Honors 
Committee within each department. Admission to a 
Departmental Honors Program ordinarily occurs at the 
beginning of the first or second semester of the students 
junior year. As a rule, only students with a cumulative 
grade point average of at least 3 are admitted. A 
comprehensive examination over the field of the major 
program is given to a candidate near the end of the 
senior year. On the basis of the students performance 
on the Honors Comprehensive Examination and in 
meeting such other requirements as may be set by the 
Departmental Honors Committee, the faculty may vote to 
recommend the candidate for the appropriate degree 
with (departmental) honors or for the appropriate 
announcement in the commencement program and by 
citation on the students academic record and diploma. 
Students in the Departmental Honors Programs enjoy 
some academic privileges similar to those of graduate 
students. 

Kappa Tau Alpha. The Maryland chapter of Kappa Tau 
Alpha was chartered in 1961. Founded in 1910, this 
national honor society has 39 chapters at universities 
offering graduate or undergraduate preparation for 
careers in professional journalism. It is dedicated to 
recognition and promotion of scholarship in journalism. 
Among its activities is an annual award for an 
outstanding piece of published research in journalism 
and mass communications. (Also see College of 
Journalism.) 

Phi Beta Kappa. Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most 
widely respected honorary fraternity in the United 
States. Invitation to membership is based not only on 
outstanding scholastic achievement, but also on breadth 
of liberal arts studies completed while enrolled at the 
University of Maryland. Gamma of Maryland chapter has 
liaison faculty members in the various departments in 
the Division of Arts and Humanities with whom students 
may discuss membership selection. It should be kept in 
mind that requirements for national honorary societies, 
such as completion of language and mathematics 
courses, often differ from the local college, division or 
university requirements. 



School of Architecture 

The School of Architecture offers a five-year 
undergraduate professional program leading to the 
degree. Bachelor of Architecture. Future plans include 
development of other environmental design programs at 
the graduate and undergraduate level. 

The School was awarded accreditation by the National 
Architectural Accreditation Board. June 1972. insuring 
that past, present, and future students will be eligible 
for registration in all 50 states upon meeting experience 
requirements and passing the standard examination. 



The School is an associate member of the Association of

throughout the world. Large segments of these urban 
populations are overcrowded, under-serviced and 
deprived of many of the amenities which city life has 
provided in the past. Many cities find themselves on the 
edge of economic, political and social disaster. Whole 
ethnic, racial and economic groups live in a continuing 
situation of frustration. This urban crisis, which has 
come into being over the last generation, promises to 
dominate our domestic lite in the United States for at 
least the generation to come. 

The complexity of these problems, precluding easy 
attribution of causes and simple solutions, has 
generated great change in the environmental design 
professions and in the other social disciplines. Where 
they once stood apart, they are now committed to a 
common purpose. Each of them has come to recognize 
the worth and value of the techniques and insights of the 
others. 

In architecture, these exchanges have influenced 
procedures, services and goals of the profession. Recent 
years have seen the introduction of the ideas of urban 
sociology and the behavioral sciences into the area of 
professional concern, and the inclusion into 
professional procedures of linear programming, 
computer technology, operations research, 
mathematical and gaming simulation, and the use of 
analog models. The scope of architectural services, 
once confined to the design, supervision and 
construction of buildings, has been broadened to 
include programming, developmental planning 
operations research, project feasibility studies, and other 
new professional activities. Finally, the role of the 
architect is expanding from a narrow concern with 
building design to a broad concern for developmental 
change, and his or her goal has developed from a 
preoccupation with beauty to a commitment to 
contribute to the enhancement of the quality of life. 

These facts illustrate both the great need for educated 
and trained professionals, and the relevancy and 
excitement which characterize the profession today. 
Perhaps at no time in history has architecture posed as 
great a challenge, or offered so great a promise of 



personal fulfillment to its practitioners. There are many 
opportunities for employment and careers in 
architectural practice. Additional education and 
experience also qualify a graduate for a career in city or 
regional planning. 

The general nature of an architectural education is 
such that some graduates elect and achieve successful 
careers in civil service, commerce or industry. 

Curriculum. The program permits students to enter the 
School of Architecture either directly from high school 
or after one year of general college work without 
extending the time required for completion of degree 
requirements. 

Students in the first year may take an introductory 
course in architecture as well as general courses In the 
second year, the student begins professional education 
in basic design and building construction as well as 
continuing his/her general education. The basic 
environmental design studio explores specific 
architectural problems as well as the general problems 
inherent in making objects and spaces. In the third year, 
coordinated courses in building design and technology 
introduce the student to the ecological, physiographic, 
physiological, social, and physical generators of 
architectural design. In the fourth year, this process is 
continued, but the emphasis is on urban design: the 
environmental context, the historical and situational 
context, urban systems, and theoretical, aesthetic and 
sociological considerations. In the fifth year of design, 
the student is offered an opportunity to choose a 
comprehensive topical problem from several offered 
each year, or to work independently. Special studies in 
technical areas as well as building design and case 
studies in urban planning may be included. 

All of the design studio courses emphasize 
environmental design problem-solving experiences, as 
well as lectures, reading assignments, and field trips that 
advance the student's skills In addition to the design and 
technical courses, the student is required to take 
architectural history, physics, mathematics, and a 
distribution of elective courses.

The general requirements of the University apply to the 
architecture program In addition, students are 
specifically required to complete a mathematics series 
terminating with MATH 221 Most students find it 
necessary to begin college mathematics with MATH 1 15, 
followed by MATH 220 and 221 In addition, architecture 
students are required to complete PHYS 121. 

Location. The School is housed in a contemporary 
air-conditioned building on the campus about 10 miles 
from Washington, DC and 30 miles from Baltimore, 
Maryland This location, in the center of a large urban 
concentration, offers many opportunities for the 
Schools program and the students growth 

The School of Architecture building provides studio 
space, a library, exhibit space, a shop, a photo lab, 
classrooms, and lecture hall facilities.

some 17,000 volumes, providing resources in building 
technology, urban planning, and landscape architecture, 
as well as in architecture. It includes a rare book 
collection and a special collection on world expositions. 
It is expected that the library will number 20,000 volumes 
by 1978. This will make it one of the major architectural 
school libraries in the nation. The library subscribes to 
about 150 foreign and domestic periodicals. 

Visual Aids. The visual aids library comprises about 
75,000 35-mm color slides in architecture, landscape 
architecture, and urban planning. Slides of student 
work, films, film-strips and photographs are included in 
the collection. Visual aid equipment is available for 
classroom use.

College of Journalism 

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

The College is within easy reach of five of the nation's 
top 20 newspapers: the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore 
News-American, the Wasfiington Post, the Wastiington 
Sfar-A/ews, and the production offices of the Wall

Street Journal. The College also has easy access to the 
Washington press corps — the large bureaus of the 
Associated Press, United Press International, New York 
Times, and many other American and foreign 
newspapers; also major networks and broadcasting 
news bureaus such as NBC, CBS, and ABC; also news, 
business, and special-interest magazines, and 
representatives of the book publishing industry. 

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

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

The College curricula in news editorial journalism and 
public relations are accredited by The American Council 
on Education for Journalism. The College is a member 
of the American Association of Schools and Departments 
of Journalism, The Association for Education in 
Journalism, and The American Society of Journalism 
School Administrators. 

Student journalism organization chapters include 
the Society of Professional Journalists (Sigma Delta 
Chi), Women in Communication, Pi Delta Epsilon, 
Kappa Tau Alpha, Kappa Alpha Mu, and a charter chapter 
of the Public Relations Student Society of America. 

The College offers specialized work in news reporting 
and editing, public relations, advertising, news 
broadcasting, news photography, and communication 
theory and research. 

The College maintains close liaison with student 
publications and communications, including the student 
daily newspaper, yearbook, feature magazine, course 
guide, literary magazine, campus radio station, and 
campus television workshop. 

The College also arranges summer internships in 
professional work and part-time on-the-job training 
opportunities. 

Advanced journalism students have many 
opportunities for professional work in the journalism 
field. The Journalism Semester Program allows students 
to take a concentrated semester of work in journalism 
during which time they produce a bi-weekly newspaper, 
the College Park Citizerj Call. Advanced news reporting 
students have the opportunity to work on the 
Montgomery Journal covering real news assignments 
for publication. In addition, advanced and graduate 
students often use the Washington, DC. resources for 
both study and professional work experience. Some 
seminars meet at the National Press Club in downtown 
Washington. 

Students may declare their intention to major in 
journalism at the beginning of any semester, but 
normally this is done before their junior year Students 
selectand work with one faculty member as their advisor 
during the course of their study at the University. 

Typing ability and English proficiency are required of 
all students. Majors must maintain a C average in courses 



taken in the College. Students must receive at least a C 
in Journalism 200 and 201 before they will be allowed to

Instructors: M. deLeirls, Samuels. 

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

In spite of this difference, both majors are rooted in 
the concept of art as a humanistic experience, and share 
an essential common aim: the development of aesthetic 
sensitivity, understanding, and knowledge. For this 
reason, students In both majors are required to progress 
through a common curriculum, " which will ensure a 
broad grounding In both aspects of art; then each 



student will move into a specialized curriculum" with 
advanced courses in his own major 

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

Chinese Program 

Associate Professor and Director: Chin. 
Lecturers: Loh, Chen. 

The program offers two series of courses — the 
language series and the content series. The language 
series consists of four levels of instruction: the 
elementary, the intermediate, the advanced, and a level 
of specialized courses such as Readings in Chinese 
History and Literature, Classical Chinese, etc. In 
addition, there is a course entitled Review of Elementary 
Chinese to bridge the gap between Elementary and 
Intermediate Chinese for those students who have had 
some exposure to the language but who are not ready 
for Intermediate Chinese. 

The content series contains courses in Chinese 
civilization, literature, and linguistics. Except for 
Chinese Linguistics, which is a sequence dealing with 
the sounds and grammatical system of the Chinese 
language and its comparison with English, courses in 
the content series do not presuppose previous 
training in the Chinese language. Since the illustrative 
materials for Chinese Linguistics (CHIN 421 , 422) are in 
Chinese, CHIN 102 or equivalent is required for this 
sequence. 

The elementary Chinese course is intensified, meeting 
6 hours per week, for which students receive 12 credits 
in one year (6 per semester). The intensive program is 
designed to give students a solid foundation of the 
language in all four skills of speaking, hearing, reading, 
and writing (characters). The instructional approach is 
audio-lingual and communication-oriented. 

Presently the program offers a minor in Chinese. It 
consists of 18 credit hours of which 6 must be in Chinese 
Linguistics. 



Classical Languages and Literatures 

Professor and Chairman: Avery. 
Associate Professor: Hubbe. 
Assistant Professor: Boughner. 

Major in Latin: LATN 101, 102, 203 and 204 or their 
equivalent must have been completed before a student 
may begin work on a major. A major consists of a 
minimum of twenty-four hours beginning with LATN 305, 
twelve hours of which must be taken in 400-level 
courses. In addition, a student majoring in Latin will be 
required to take as supporting courses LATN 170, 
HIFN 456, and HIFN 457. The student is urged to pursue 
a strong supporting program in Greek. The following 
courses are recommended as electives: HIST 151 and 
152, ARTH 402 and 403, and PHIL 310. No course in the 
Latin language with a grade less than C may be used to 
satisfy major requirements. 

Normally no placement tests are given in the classical 
languages. The following schedule will apply in general 
in determining the course level af which students will 
register for Latin. 

Students offering or 1 unit of Latin will register for 
LATN 101. 

Students offering 2 units of Latin will register for 
LATN 203. 

Students offering 3 units of Latin will register for 
LATN 204. 

Students offering 4 units of Latin will register for 
LATN 305, 

However, those presenting 2, 3, or 4 units of 
preparatory work may register initially for the next higher 
course by demonstrating proficiency through a 
placement test. Students whose stage of achievement 
is not represented here are urgently invited to confer 
with the chairman of the department. Students who wish 
to continue the study of Greek should likewise confer 
with the chairman of the department.

Martin, Suppe. 

Assistant Professors: Ahern. Darden, Gardner, Kress,

The undergraduate course offerings of the Department 
of Philosophy are, as a group, intended both to satisfy 
the needs of persons wishing to make philosophy their 
major field and to provide ample opportunity for other 
students to explore the subject. In general, the study of 
philosophy can contribute to the education of the 
university student by giving him or her experience in 
critical and imaginative reflection on fundamental 
concepts and principles, by acquainting him or her with 
some of the philosophical beliefs which have influenced 
and are influencing his own culture, and by familiarizing 
him or her with some classic philosophical writings 
through careful reading and discussion of them. The 
department views philosophy essentially as an activity, 
which cultivates articulateness. expository skill, and 
logical rigor. Students in philosophy courses can expect 




ACADEMIC DIVISIONS. COLLEGES. SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS / 61 



their work to be subjected to continuing critical scrutiny. 
Courses designed with these objectives primarily in mind 
include PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy), PHIL 170 
(Elementary Logic and Semantics), PHIL 140 (Ethics), 
PHIL 236 (Philosophy of Religion), and the historical 
courses: 207, 305, 310. 320, 325, and 326. 

For students interested particularly in philosophical 
problems arising within their own special disciplines, a 
number of courses are appropriate: PHIL 233 
(Philosophy in Literature), PHIL 246 (Philosophy of 
Education), PHIL 250 (Philosophy of Science I), PHIL 345 
(Social and Political Philosophy I), PHIL 360 (Philosophy 
of Language), PHIL 330 (Philosophy of Art), PHIL 432 
(Topics in Philosophical Theology), PHIL 450 and 451 
(Scientific Thought I and II), PHIL 452 (Philosophy of 
Physics), PHIL 453 (Philosophy of Science II), PHIL 455 
(Philosophy of the Social Sciences), PHIL 456 
(Philosophy of Biology), PHIL 457 (Philosophy of 
History), PHIL 458 (Philosophy of Psychology), and 
PHIL 474 (Induction and Probability). 

Pre-law students may be particularly interested in 
PHIL 140 (Ethics), PHIL 345 and 445 (Political and 
Social Philosophy I and II). PHIL 440 (Ethical Theory), 
and PHIL 447 (Philosophy of Law). Pre-medical students 
may be particularly interested in PHIL 342 (Moral 
Problems in fi^edicine), and PHIL 456 (Philosophy of 
Biology). 

The departmental requirements for a major in 
philosophy are as follows: (1 ) a total of at least 30 hours 
in philosophy, not including PHIL 100; (2) PHIL 140, 
271, 310, 320, 326, and at least two courses numbered 
399 and above; (3) a grade of C or better in each course 
counted toward the fulfillment of the major requirement. 

For students of exceptional ability and interest in 
philosophy, the department offers an honors program. 
Information regarding this special curriculum may be 
obtained from the departmental advisors. 

The department presents visiting speakers from this 
country and abroad in its colloquium series, scheduled 
throughout the academic year. In addition, members of 
the department and advanced graduate students lecture 
on topics of current significance in the Graduate 
Workshop and in the undergraduate Philosophy Club.

Russian Area Program 

Director and Student Advisor: Foust, Yaney. 

The Russian Area Program offers courses leading to a 
B.A. in Russiin studies. Students in the program study 
Russian and Soviet culture as broadly as possible, 
striving to comprehend it in all its aspects rather than 
focusing their attention on a single segment of human 
behavior It is hoped that insights into the Russian way 
of life will be valuable not only as such but as a means 
to deepen the students' awareness of their own society 
and of themselves. 

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

Students in the program must meet the general degree 
requirements of the University and division from which 
they graduate. They must complete 12 hours of basic 
courses in Russian language (RUSS 111, 112 |or RUSS 
121 in place of both 111 and 1121, 114. and 115) or the 
equivalent of these courses taken elsewhere, and they 
must complete at least 12 more hours in Russian 
language beyond the basic level (chosen from among 
RUSS 201. 202, 301, 302, 311. 312. 321. and 322 or 
equivalent courses). In addition, students must complete 
24 hours in Russian area courses on the 300 level or 
above These 24 hours must be taken in at least 5 
different departments, if appropriate courses are 
available, and may include language-literature courses 
beyond those required above. 



HIST 237, Russian Civilization, is recommended as a 
general introduction to the program but does not count 
toward the fulfillment of the program's requirements. 

It is recommended but not required that the student 
who plans on doing graduate work complete at least 
18 hours at the 300 level or above (which may include 
courses applicable to the Russian Area Program) m 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 students advisor will be the program director. The 
student must receive a grade of C or better in all the 
above mentioned required courses.

The Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences 
consists of faculty and students who are involved in 
research and teaching relating to the analysis and 
solution of behavioral and social problems. The Division, 
organized in 1972. contains academic departments 
which were formerly administered by the College of Arts 
and Sciences and the College of Business and Public 
Administration, in addition to a new College of Business 
and Management. The Division is designed to extend and 
support learning in the traditional disciplines while 
creating conditions for the development of 
interdisciplinary approaches to recurring social 
problems. Divisional students might choose to 
concentrate their studies in the traditional fields, or may 
be interested in focusing on interdisciplinary study. As 
part of its response to society's need for resolution of the 
ever more complex problems of modern civilization, the 



Division of 
Behavioral and 
Social Sciences 



University must promote the utilization of knowledge 
generated by a cross fertilization of disciplines. The 
Division will facilitate the grouping and regrouping of 
faculty across disciplinary lines for problem-oriented 
research and teaching. The interaction of faculty and 
students in overlapping fields will be encouraged and 
supported. 

In order to promote the exchange of ideas, 
education, and knowledge, each unit of the Division, 
including the College of Business and Management, will 
be concerned with both applied and theoretical aspects 
of the resolution of social problems. Practicums and 
internships will be utilized increasingly for the purpose of 
relating theoretical and empirical concepts in pursuit of 
the Divisions concern with conditions in society. 

The units in the Division are: The College of Business 
and Management. Department of Afro-American Studies, 

ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS / 63 



Anthropology Department, Department of Economics, 
Department of Geography. Department of Government 
and Politics, Department of Information Systems 
Management, Department of Hearing and Speech 
Sciences, Department of Sociology, Department of 
Psychology, Institute of Urban Studies, and the 
Linguistics Program. 

In addition to these departments, programs and 
institutes, the Division includes the Bureau of Business 
and Economics Research and the Bureau of 
Governmental Research. 

Entrance Requirements. Requirements for admission to 
the Division are the same as the requirements for 
admission to the University. 

Degrees. The University confers the following degrees, 
as appropriate, on students completing programs of 
study in the academic units in the Division: Bachelor 
of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, Master of 
Science, Master of Business Administration, Doctor of 
Business Administration, Doctor of Philosophy. Each 
candidate for a degree must file in the Office of 
Admissions and Registrations, prior to a date announced 
for each semester, a formal application for the 
appropriate degree. 

Graduation Requirements. A minimum of 120 hours of 
credit with an average of C, which must include the 30 
hours specified by the General University Requirements 
and the specific major and supporting course 
requirements of the College of Business and 
Management or of the programs in the academic units of 



the Division are required for graduation. 

Students who matriculated in departments originally 
in the College of Business and Public Administration or 
in departments in the College of Arts and Sciences shall 
have the option of completing their degrees and 
requirements as stated under the old college 
requirements, including the previous General Education 
Requirements or under the new divisional requirements. 

Senior Residence Requirement. All candidates for 
degrees should plan to take their senior year in residence 
since the advanced work of the major study normally 
occurs in the last year of the undergraduate course 
sequence. At least 24 of the last 30 credits must be done 
in residence For example, a student, who at the time of 
his graduation, will have completed 30 semester hours in 
residence may be permitted to do no more than 6 
semester hours of the final 30 credits of record in another 
institution, provided the student secures permission in 
advance from the dean or the Division Provost. University 
College credit is not considered to be resident credit for 
purposes of the last 30 hour rule. The student must be 
enrolled in the division from which he or she plans to 
graduate when registering for the last 1 5 credits of his or 
her program. 

Honors: The Provost's List of Distinguished Students. 

Any student who has passed at least 12 hours of 
academic work in the preceding semester, without 
failure of any course, and with an average grade on all 
courses of at least 3.5 will be placed on the Provost's 
List of Distinguished Students.

Academic Advisement. General advisement in the 
College ot Business and Management is available in 
Room 5119. Tydings Hall It is recommended that 
students visit this office each year to ensure they are 
informed about current requirements and procedures. 
Specific advisement pertaining to a particular 
curriculum (for example, accounting) is available from 
the chairman or other faculty in the particular area of 
study Student problems concerning advisement should 
be directed to the Director of Undergraduate Studies in 
Room 3136A. Tydings Hall. 

Transfer students entering the University can be 
advised during transfer orientation and first semester 
freshmen entering the University in the fall can receive 
advisement during the summer freshmen orientation 
program of the college 

Entrance Requirements. Requirements for admission 
to the college are those of the University. To assure a 
likelihood of success in the college, it is recommended 
that the student have four units of English, three or 
preferably tour units of college preparatory mathematics 
(including a minimum of tv^o units of algebra and one 
unit of geometry), one or more units of history and social 
science, two or more units of natural science, and two or 
more units of foreign language. Students expecting to 
enroll In the College of Business and f^anagement 
should pursue the precollege program in high school. 

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credit from 
Community Colleges. The College of Business and 
Management subscribes to the policy that a students 
undergraduate program below the junior year should 
include no advanced, professional level courses. This 
policy Is based on the conviction that the value derived 
from these advanced courses is materially enhanced 
when based upon a sound foundation in the liberal arts. 

In adhering to the above policy. It is the practice of the 
College of Business and Management to accept In 
transfer from an accredited community college no more 
than 12 semester hours of work In business 
administration courses. 

The 12 semester hours of business administration 
acceptable In transfer are specifically Identified as three 
(3) semester hours in an Introductory business course, 
three (3) semester hours In business statistics, and six 
(6) semester hours of elementary accounting. Thus, It 
Is anticipated that the student transferring from another 
institution will have devoted the major share of his 
academic effort, below the junior year, to the completion 
of basic requirements In the liberal arts. A total of 60 
semester hours may be transferred from a community 
college and applied toward a degree from the College of 
Business and Management. 

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

Management Science-Statistics. In the managennent 
science-statistics curriculum, the student has the option 
of concentrating primarily in statistics or primarily in 
management science. The two options are described 
below. 

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

Students planning to major in statistics must take 
MATH 140-141. 

Course requirements for the junior-senior curriculum 
concentration in the statistics option are: 

(1) the following required courses: Semester 

Hours 
BMGT 430— Linear Statistical Models

Management Science option. Management Science 
(operations research) can be defined as the application 
of scientific methodology by interdisciplinary teams to 
problems involving the control of organized 
man-machine systems so as to provide solutions which 
best serve the purposes of the organization as a whole. 
Practitioners in this field are employed by large 
organizations (military, governmental, private industrial, 
private consulting), to analyze operations in the light of 
organizational goals and recommended changes 
requisite to goal fulfillment 

Students planning to major in this field must complete 
MATH 140-141 prior to junior standing. Students 
considering graduate work in this field should complete 
MATH 240-241 as early as possible in their careers.

of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree to students who 
declare a major in Afro-American Studies and who fulfill 
the academic requirements of this degree program. 

Students who want to take a major in another 
department, as well as follow a concentration outside 
his major of 18 hours of upper division course work with 
an emphasis on black life and experiences, can receive 
a Certificate in Afro-American Studies, This work 
includes courses in art, African languages, economics, 
English, geography, history, music, political science, 
sociology, speech and education. 

Undergraduates in good standing may enroll in the

Professor Roosevelt Williams, Professor Bartholomew 
Landry or Rosetta Thompson of the Afro-American 
Studies Program, in Room 0100, Woods Hall, Students 
pursuing a major or certificate must meet the General 
University and division requirements. 

Students who plan to major in Afro-American Studies 
must complete a total of 36 hours of Afro-American 
Studies courses. At least 24 of the 36 hours must be in 
upper division courses (300-400 numbers). Twelve hours 
of basic courses are required. To fulfill this requirement, 
all majors must take the twelve hours of basic courses: 
AASP 100, AASP 200. AASP 202 and AASP 298A. A 
minimum of six hours of seminars (two courses) are 
required: AASP 401 to be taken after completing 15 hours 
of required courses, and AASP 397 to be taken during the 
students senior year. AASP 397 will include the writing 
of a senior thesis. The remaining 18 hours of upper 
division course work (300-400 numbers) should be 
concentrated in areas of specialization within the 
Program, but may not include AASP 397 or AASP 401. 
Related and supporting courses taken in other 
departments must be approved by a faculty advisor on 
the student's program plan. Each course counted for 
the above requirements must be passed with a grade of 



Behavioral and 
Social Sciences 
Departments, 
Programs and 
Curricula 



C or better. In addition to the program of courses 
indicated above, each student majoring in 
Afro-American Studies is strongly advised to utilize the 
remainder of the 120 hours required for graduation by 
concentrating his studies in areas such as African 
Studies, Technology, Fine Arts, Pre-Law, Pre-Medicine, 
Business Administration, Social Sciences, and Urban 
Studies, etc. Model four-year program for these and 
other areas of concentration are available from program 
advisors. 

To receive a Certificate in Afro-American Studies, the 
student must enroll and receive a satisfactory grade in 
AASP 100 plus at least three (3) of the required courses 
which must include AASP 401 , Seminar in Afro-American

The Anthropology Department offers beginning and 
advanced course, work in the four principal 
subdivisions of the discipline: physical anthropology. 
linguistics, archaeology and ethnology. Courses in these 
subdivisions may be used to fulfill the minor or 
supporting courses" requirement in some programs 
leading to the B.A. degree. They also may, at the 
discretion of the Department of Sociology, be counted 
toward a major in Sociology, 

Anthropology Major: The fulfillment of the 
requirements for a major in anthropology leads to the 
B.A degree. All majors are required to take 30 hours in 
anthropology. 18 of which must be selected from the 
following courses: ANTH 101, 102, 401,441, or 451, 371 
or 461, and 397, It should be noted, however, that if 
ANTH 101 Is used to satisfy the General University 
requirement in Behavioral and Social Sciences, it may 

ACADEIVIIC DIVISIONS. COLLEGES. SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS / 69 



not be counted as a part of the 30 required semester 
hours tor the major. The 18 hours of required courses 
insures that the major becomes familiar with all areas of 
anthropology. No one area therefore, receives special 
emphasis, for it is believed that such specialization 
should occur during graduate study, preferably at the 
Ph.D. level. Thus the student is broadly prepared in the 
ways humans have evolved culturally and physically. A 
statement of course requirements and recommended 
sequences of courses is available in the departmental 
office. 

No course with a grade of less than C may be used to 
satisfy major requirements.

The functions of the Bureau of Business and Economic 
Research are research, education and public service. 

The research activities of the bureau are primarily 
focused on basic research in the field of regional, urban 
and environmental studies. Although the bureau's 
long-run research program is carried out largely by its 
own staff, faculty members from other departments also 
participate. The bureau also undertakes cooperative 
research programs with the sponsorship of federal and 
state governmental agencies, research foundations and 
other groups. 

The educational functions of the bureau are achieved 
through active participation by advanced graduate and 
undergraduate students in the bureau's research 
program. This direct involvement of students in the 
research process under faculty supervision assists 
students in their degree programs and provides 
research skills that equip students for responsible posts 
in business, government and higher education. 

The bureau observes its service responsibilities to 
government, business, and private groups primarily 
through the publication and distribution of its research 
findings. In addition, the bureau staff welcomes the 
opportunity to be of service to governmental and civic 
groups by consulting with them on problems, especially 
in the fields of regional and urban economic 
development and forecasting, state and local public 
finance, and environmental management.

The study of economics is designed to give students 
an understanding of the American economic system and 
our country s economic relations with the rest of the 
world, and the ability to analyze the economic forces 
which largely determine the national output of goods and 
services, the level of prices, and the distribution of 
income. It is also designed to prepare students for 
graduate study, and for employment opportunities m 
private business, the Federal government, state and 
local government, universities and research institutions 
Demand for college graduates trained in economics 
continues to be strong, and this is among the fields of 
undergraduate study strongly recommended for 
students planning to study law. or enter public 
administration, as well as those who plan to become 
professional economists.

Requirements for the Economics Major. In addition to 
the thirty-hour General University Requirements, the 
requirements for the Economics major are: 

(1) Mathematics 

Six credit hours. No specific courses are required, but 
the combination of MATH 1 10 (Introduction to 
Mathematics) and MATH 220 (Elementary Calculus) is 
highly recommended for those who take only six hours. 
Students planning to do graduate study m economics are 
strongly urged to take more than the minimum six-hour 
mathematics requirement, since graduate programs 
emphasize the application of mathematical and 
statistical techniques in the analysis of economic 
problems. 

Economics majors should take mathematics courses 
early in their college careers in order to gain an 
understanding of mathematical principles which will 
assist them in later course work in Economics. 

(2) Upper Division Courses Outside of Economics. 
Twelve credit hours. Economics majors must earn 

credit for twelve hours of upper division work in 
non-economics courses (in addition to the nine hours of 
upper division courses required as part of the General 
University Requirements). For purposes of this 
requirement, any of the following may count as an 

upper division" course: any course numbered 300 or 
above: any course in mathematics beyond the six hours 
required of all economics majors, and any course in a 
department for which the prerequisites are the 
equivalent of one year of college-level work in that 
department. In particular, a second-year college course 
in foreign languages may be counted as "upper 
division." 

(3) Economics Courses. 

Thirty-six credit hours. Economics majors must earn 
36 credit hours in economics. Courses required of all 
majors are: ECON 201 . 203, 310 (formerly 1 1 0), 401 . 403. 
and 421 . 

In lieu of Economics 421 (Economic Statistics), the 
student may take one of the following statistics courses: 
BMGT 230, BMGT 231 , or STAT 400. A student who takes 
ECON 205 before deciding to major in Economics may 
continue with ECON 203. without being required to take 
ECON 201. 

The remainder of the 36 hours may be chosen from 
among any other economics courses and from the 
following courses in Business Administration: BMGT 
230. 231. 431. 432. 481. (However, students who take 
ECON 421 may not also receive credit for BMGT 230 or 
BMGT 231 . and students may not receive credit for ECON 
105 if they have taken any two courses from among 
ECON 201. 203. and 205.) 

Students must earn an average grade of not less than C 
in lower-division economics courses in order to be 
accepted as economics majors. To graduate as majors, 
they must pass the minimum of 36 hours in economics. 
The average grade in all economics courses must be 
not less than C. 

Sequence of Courses. The Department of Economics 
does not specify a rigid sequence in which courses are 
to be taken, but it urges its majors to observe the 
following recommendations. 

By the end of the sophomore year, the economics 
major should have at least completed 6 hours of 
mathematics. ECON 201 and 203 ECON 201 should be 
taken before ECON 203. Upon completion of ECON 203. 
the student should promptly take ECON 401 . 403. or both. 
in the following semester, since these are intermediate 
theory courses of general applicability in later course 
work. Majors should take ECON 421 (or equivalent) at an 
early stage, since an understanding of statistical 
techniques will be helpful in other courses. (ECON 421 
may be completed before other 400-level economics 
courses, since its only prerequisite is MATH 110 or 
equivalent.) 

Economics majors should take ECON 401 prior to 
taking ECON 430 or 440. and ECON 403 prior to taking 
ECON 450. 454. 460. or 470. 



Those students planning to pursue graduate study In 
economics should fry to include ECON 422 (Quantitative 
Methods) and ECON 425 (Mathematical Economics) in 
their programs and should also consider entering the 
Departmental Honors Program, if qualified. 

Each economics major may select, or be assigned, a 
faculty member as an advisor, and is encouraged to 
consult the advisor for course recommendations and 
other information. Economics majors are welcome, and 
should feel completely free, to seek advice at any time 
from any other faculty member in the Department. 

Economics Honors Program. The Departmental Honors 
Program is a three-semester (9 credit hour) program 
which students enter at the beginning of their last three 
semesters at the University. It emphasizes seminar 
discussions of selected topics in economics and 
independent research and writing, with faculty 
supervision The program culminates in the student's 
presentation of an honors thesis, in the final semester. 
To be eligible for the Honors Program, a student must 
have a cumulative grade point average of not less 
than 3.0. 

Geography 

Professor and Chairman: Harper. 

Professors: Deshler. Fonaroff. Hu. 

Associate Professors: Brodsky. Chaves. Groves. 

Mitchell. Thompson. Wiedel. 

Assistant Professors: Christian. Cirrincione. Garst. 

Muller. Roswell. Thorn. Yoshioka. 

Lecturer: Nicholas. 

Geography studies the spatial patterns and 
interactions of natural, cultural, and socio-economic 
phenomena on earths surface. The field thus embraces 
aspects of both the physical and the social sciences, 
which are applied in the analysis of patterns of 
distribution of individual phenomena, to the study of 
complex interrelations of phenomena found in a given 
region, and to the synthesis of geographic regions. A 
geographer should, therefore, acquire background 
knowledge in certain aspects of the physical as well as 
the social sciences. 

Field work and map analysis have been the basic 
tools of research for the geographer. In recent years 
these have been augmented by the use of techniques 
of air photo interpretation and presently by the 
development of methods of interpreting data obtained 
from the remote sensing devices of space satellites. 
Modern geography also is making increasing application 
of quantitative methods, including the use of statistics 
and systems analysis, so that mathematical training is 
becoming increasingly important for a successful career 
in geography. 

Today geographers are employed in a wide range of 
positions. Geographers in the federal government work 
in the Departments of State. Interior. Defense. 
Agriculture. Housing and Urban Affairs, and Health. 
Education, and Welfare. They are on the staffs of the 
legislative research branch, the Library of Congress and 
the National Archives. At the state and local government 
level there is an increasing demand for geographers in 
planning positions. And in recent years more and more 
geographers have found employment in private industry 
working on problems of industrial and commercial 
location and market analysis. Teaching at all levels from 
elementary school through graduate work continues to 
employ more geographers each year. Some have found 
geography to be an excellent background for careers in 
the military, journalism and general business: others 
have simply found the broad perspective of geography 
an excellent base for a general education. Most 
professional positions in geography require graduate 
training. 

Requirements for an Undergraduate Major. Within any 
of the general major programs it is possible for the 
student to adjust his program to fit his particular

The Geography Core — The following four courses 
form the minimum essential base upon v*(hich advanced 
work in geography can be built: 

GEOG 201 — Introduction to Physical Geography. 3 

GEOG 202— Introduction to Cultural Geography 3 
GEOG 203 — Introduction to Economic 

Geography 3 

GEOG 300— Introduction to Research & Writing . 3 

The three lower division courses are to be completed 
prior to GEOG 300 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 300 is specifically designed as a preparation to 
upper division work and should be taken by the end of 
the junior year. Upon consultation with a department 
advisor, a reasonable load of other upper division work 
in geography may betaken concurrently with GEOG 300. 

The Field Study Requirement - The field study 
requirement may be completed in either of two ways, 
depending on which is available in the schedule: (1 ) by 
taking Geography 380 — Local Field Course, 3 hours 
or (2) by taking three out of four of the following one-hour 
field study courses each stressing a different aspect of 
geographic field work: GEOG 381 — Field Study: 
Physical; GEOG 382 — Field Study: Rural; GEOG 382 — 
Field Study: Urban; GEOG 384 — Field Study: (Methods. 
Normally two of the different one-hour courses will be 
offered each semester, and the student should arrange 
to take them as is convenient during the junior and 
senior years. 

Introduction to Geography — Geography 100: 
Introduction to Geography is a general education course 
for persons who have had no previous contact with the 
discipline in high school or for persons planning to take 
only one course in geography. It provides a general 
overview of the field rather than of a single specialized 
subdivision. Credit for this course is not applied to the 
major. 

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

Urban Geography and Regional Development - 
Provides preparation for careers in planning and 
teaching. Majors electing this specialty take 
departmental courses in urban geography, industrial 
location, transportation, and economic geography 
among others and supporting courses in urban 
sociology, urban economics, urban transportation, and 
the urban studies program outside the department. 

Physical Geography - For students with special 
interest in the natural environment and in its interaction 
with the works of man. This specialization consists of 
departmental courses in geomorphology, climatology, 
and resources, and of supporting courses in geology, 
soils, meteorology, hydrology, and botany 

Cartography - Prepares students for careers in map 
design, compilation and reproduction. The department 
offers various courses in thematic mapping, 
cartographic history and theory, map evaluation, and 
map and photo interpretation. For additional training 
students are advised to take supporting courses in art 
and civil engineering. 

Cultural Geography - Of interest to students 
particularly concerned with the geographic aspects of 
population, politics, and other social and cultural 
phenomena, and with historical geography. In addition 



to departmental course offermgs this specialization 
depends on work in sociology, anthropology, 
government and politics, history, and economics. 

For further information on any of these areas of 
interest the student should contact a departmental 
advisor. 

All math programs should be approved by a 
departmental advisor.

Linguistics Program 

Associate Professor and Director: Dingwall. 
Assistant Professor: Fidelholtz. 

The program in linguistics is designed to provide 
students with a comprehensive and consistent view of 
the accomplishments, methodology and problems of 
modern linguistic science which has as its aim the 
explication of the facts of specific natural languages 
as well as of natural language in general. While any 
educated man will benefit from an understanding of the 
structure and development of language, those who 
expect to become scholars and teachers of 
anthropology, English, foreign languages, philosophy, 
psychology, or speech will find a background in 
linguistics invaluable. Although there is not an 
undergraduate major in linguistics at this time, courses 
in linguistics may be used to fulfill the supporting course 
requirements in some programs leading to the B.A. or 
B.S. degree.

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

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

Department requirements are the same for the 
Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts degrees. 
A minimum of 31 hours of psychology course work is 
required: courses taken must include PSYC 100, 200, and 
eight additional courses In order to assure breadth these 
additional courses must be selected from four different 
areas (two from each area). 

The areas and courses are as follows;

At least one course of these eight must be either PSYC 
400, 410, or 420 All majors are also required to take 
MATH 111 or 140, or 220 and at least one laboratory 
science course outside of Psychology. *One additional, 
more advanced math or science course (selected from 
the list appearing in the Departmental Program Guide) 
must also be taken 

•Approved courses include 

ZOOL 201 or higher, except ZOOL 207S, 270 and 280 

MATH 141 or higher, except 210, 211, and 220 

CHEM 201 or higher except 302 

PHYS 141 or higher except 181, 221, 222, 400 and 401 

MICB 200 or higher 

CMSC 210 or higher 

These math and science courses may be used as part 
of the General University Requirements or for the 
supporting course requirements described below, but 
not for both. Majors in psychology are urged to take 
their mathematics and science courses in their first two 
years. 

The supporting courses to supplement the work in the 
major for the Bachelor of Science degree must include 
18 hours in mathematics and science, beyond those 
courses required by the college. A minimum of two 
courses must be laboratory courses, and at least three 
courses (or 9 hours) must be chosen at the advanced 
level (as described above). The particular laboratory 
and advanced courses must be approved by an academic 
advisor in the Department of Psychology. 

The supporting courses for the Bachelor of Arts degree 
must include 18 hours which are chosen in related fields 
to supplement work in the major. Of these 18 hours, six 
must be chosen at the 300 and 400 level. This set of 
courses must be approved by an academic advisor in 
psychology. 

Although a minimum of thirty-one (31) hours of 
psychology course work is required for a Psychology 
major, each and every Psychology course taken by the 
major student must be counted as hours towards the 
Psychology major. The student majoring in Psychology 
cannot use any Psychology course towards the 
University or Divisional course requirements. 

A grade of C or better must be earned in the 31 credits 
of Psychology courses counted towards the major or a 
course must be repeated until a C or better is earned. 
If the course is not repeated then another Psychology 
course fulfilling the same major requirements would 
have to be substituted. The departmental grade point 
average will be a cumulative computation of all grades 
earned in Psychology and must be a 2.0 or above. 

Students desiring to enter graduate study in certain 
areas of psychology are advised to take an additional 
laboratory course andor participate in individual 
research projects. Such students should consult an 
advisor for information about prerequisites for graduate 
study in psychology. 

It should be noted that there are three course content 
areas that have two courses, one in the 300 sequence 
and one in the 400 sequence. These include abnormal 
(331 and 431), personality (335 and 435), child 
psychology (333 and 433), and industrial psychology 
(361 and 461). The courses in the 300 sequence provide 
general surveys of the field and are intended for 
non-majors who do not plan further in-depth study. The 
courses in the 400 sequence provide more 
comprehensive study with particular emphasis on 
research and methodology. The 400 series is intended 
primarily for psychology majors. It should be further 
noted that a student may not receive credit for both: 




PSYC 331 and PSYC 431 
PSYC 333 and PSYC 433 
PSYC 335 and PSYC 435 

or 
PSYC 361 and PSYC 461 

Honors. The Department of Psychology also offers a 
special program for the superior student which 
emphasizes independent study and research Students 
may be eligible to enter the Honors Program who have a 
3 3 grade average in all courses or the equivalent, who 
are in the junior year, and who demonstrate interest and 
maturity indicative of success in the program. Students 
in their sophomore year should consult their advisor or 
the Departmental Honors Committee for further 
information.

ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS / 75 



In 1 920 53% of the U.S. population was urban ; by 1 975 
this percentage had jumped to 77%. The Institute for 
Urban Studies recognizes that this indicates a growing 
need not only for urban plannersand managers, butalso 
for people going into many diverse fields to have a firm 
grasp of the impact of the rapid urbanization process in 
thiscountry. The interdisciplinary program offered by the 
Institute for Urban Studies is therefore designed for 
students interested in urban oriented careers and 
graduate study in urban affairs, as well as for students 
who wish to understand urban society. The faculty is 
drawn from six colleges and schools of the University on 
several campuses. The B.A. and B S. degrees in Urban 
Studies can be given by any of the colleges or schools 
on any of the campuses of the University of Maryland. 

The program assumes a comprehensive approach to 
urbanism and focuses on the total metropolitan area, 
including suburbs as well as central cities, their 
interrelationship, and state and federal policy. In 
addition to an interdisciplinary or multi-disciplinary 
staff, the program includes students from a variety of 
disciplines. The program centers around a set of 
seminars dealing with cities or urbanization as they 
involve economic factors, social problems, political and 
governmental activities, and environmental and physical 
aspects of urbanization. Contemporary urban problems 
will be emphasized and modern methodological and 
analytical techniques will be considered. In addition to 
the Urban Studies courses, an area of urban-related 
specialization from another discipline is selected. Each 
student, working closely with the Urban Studies advising 
office, designs an Individualized program of study based 
on interests and future career plans. The advising office 
is located in Room 0104D, Woods Hall, x5718. 

The Institute also offers an internship program. The 
students selecting this program have an opportunity to 
work in an urban-related office, focusing on their 
particular area of interest. The College Park Campus is 
well situated in an area including both major 
metropolitan areas, their suburbs, several new towns, 
and many small towns which are currently becoming 
urbanized. In addition to the internship possibilities, 
these areas offer a great source of both research and 
professional work experience for the advanced and 
graduate level student. 

Requirements. In general, for a bachelor's degree in 
Urban Studies, a student should register in a division, 
college or school, satisfy University, division and 
college or school requirements, and complete course 
work in urban and urban-oriented subject matter. 
The major in Urban Studies requires 42 credits: 

15-24 in URBS courses 

12-15 in urban oriented courses within a department 



or program selected as a disciplinary urban 
specialization. 
9-12 within one of the three basic fields and from at 
least two departments. 
The URBS courses include the following: 
URBS 100 — Introduction to Interdisciplinary Urban Studies 
URBS 210— Survey of the Field o1 Urban Studies 
URBS 220 — Environmental and Technological Aspects of 

the Urban Community 
URBS 320— The City and the Developing National Culture

education are available to its students and faculty. The 
Library of Congress, the library of the United States 
Office of Education, and special libraries ol other 
government agencies are accessible, as well as the 
information services of the National Education 
Association, the American Council on Education, United 
States Office of Education, and other organizations, 
public and private The school systems of the District of 
Columbia, Baltimore and the counties of Maryland offer 
generous cooperation. 

The teacher education programs preparing early 
childhood, elementary school and secondary school 
teachers at the bachelor's degree and master's degree 
levels, and the programs preparing school service 
personnel (elementary and secondary school 
principals, general school administrators, supervisors, 
curriculum coordinators, guidance counselors, student 
personnel administrators, and vocational rehabilitation 
counselors) at the master's, advanced graduate 
specialist and doctoral degree levels are all fully 
accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of 
Teacher Education. 

Requirements for Admission. All students desiring to 
enroll in the College of Education must apply to the 
Director of Admissions of the University of Maryland at 
College Park and meet the admissions requirements 
detailed in Section I of this catalog. There are no specific 
secondary school course requirements for admission. 
but a foreign language is desirable in some of the 
programs, and courses in fine arts, trades, and 
vocational subjects are also desirable for some 
programs. 

Candidates for admission whose high school or 
college records are consistently low are strongly 
advised not to seek admission to the College of 
Education 

Students with baccalaureate degrees who have 
applied for admission as special students must have 
received prior permission from the appropriate 
department. 

Guidance in Registration. Students who intend to teach 
(except agriculture and physical education) should 
register in the College of Education in order that they 
may have the continuous counsel and guidance of the 
faculty directly responsible for teacher education at the 
University of Maryland. At the time of matriculation each 
student is assigned to a member of the faculty who acts 
as the student's advisor. The choice of subject areas 
within which the student will prepare to teach will be 
made under faculty guidance during the freshman year. 
The student will confer regularly with the faculty advisor 
in the College of Education responsible for his teaching 
major. 

While students on the College Park Campus may 
transfer into an Education major at any time, it is 
recommended that this transfer occur prior to the junior 
year because of the required sequence of professional 
courses and experiences. Articulated programs have 
been developed with most of Maryland's community 
colleges to accommodate transferring to College Park

In considering applications, the following guidelines 
have been established; 

1 . No student will be allowed to enroll in EDHD 300 and 
methods classes until he or she has received 
approval. 

2. Approval is always granted with the understanding 
that the student will have a successful field 
experience in EDHD 300 and that any case may be 
reconsidered by the committee if subsequent 
academic performance declines. 

3. Secondary education applicants must show evidence 
of ability to achieve on an above average level in 
courses directly related to their major field. 

4. Applicants must be of good moral and ethical 
character. This will be determined as fairly as possible 
from such evidence as advisors' recommendations 
and records of serious Campus delinquencies. 

5. Applicants must be physically and emotionally 
capable of functioning as teachers. This will mean 
freedom from serious chronic illness, emotional 
instability and communicable diseases, as 
determined in cooperation with the Health Service 
and the Counseling Center. 

6. Applicants must be free of serious speech handicaps. 
A health certificate certifying absence of 
communicable disease is required for participation in 
any education course with a field experience 
component.

The Department of Industrial Education offers 
programs leading to teacher certification in industrial 
arts and vocational-industrial education. It also offers 
a program in Industrial Technology which prepares 
individuals for supervisory and industrial management 
positions, and a technical education program for 
persons with advanced technical preparation who wish 
to teach in technical institutes or junior colleges. 

Three curricula are administered by the Industrial 
Education Department: (1) Vocational-Industrial 
Education; (2) Industrial Arts Education, and 
(3) Industrial Technology. The overall offering includes 
both undergraduate and graduate programs leading to 
the degrees of; Bachelor of Science, Master of 
Education, Master of Arts, Doctor of Education, and 
Doctor of Philosophy. 

The vocational-industrial curriculum may lead eitherto 
certification as a vocational-industrial teacher with no 
degree involved or to a Bachelor of Science degree, 
including certification. The University of Maryland is 
designated as the institution which shall offerthe "Trade 
and Industrial" certification courses and hence the 
courses which are offered are those required for 
certification in Maryland. The vocational-industrial 
curriculum requires trade competence as specified by 
the Maryland State Plan for Vocational Education. A 
person who aspires to be certified should review the 
state plan and may well contact the Maryland State 
Department of Education officials. If the person has in 
mind teaching in a designated city or county, he or she 
may discuss his or her plans with the vocational- 
industrial official of that city or county inasmuch as 
there are variations in employment and training 
procedures. 

Industrial Arts Education. The Industrial Arts Education 
curriculum prepares persons to teach industrial arts at 
the secondary school level. It is a four-year program 
leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. While trade or 
industrial experience contributes significantly to the 
background of the industrial arts teacher, previous work 
experience is not a condition of entrance into this 
curriculum. Students who are enrolled in the curriculum 
are encouraged to obtain work in industry during the 
summer months. Industrial arts as a secondary school 
subject area is a part ot the general education program 
characterized by extensive laboratory experiences.

The College of Human Ecology focuses in its programs 
on the needs of individuals and society. The College 
shares in the obligation of all higher education to 
provide a broad based education for evei^ Individual as 
preparation for living In close harmony with the 
environment In both the immediate and long-range 
future. 

Human Ecology is an Interdisciplinary, problem- 
focused field of study dealing with the Interactions of 
man and his environment: how man impinges upon the 
environment and how the environment impinges upon 
man. In the broad context, the term environment 
includes physical-natural, socioeconomic, and esthetic 
concerns. Thus, Human Ecology must draw upon and 
integrate basic disciplines of the natural and behavioral 
sciences along with the arts and humanities in the 
definition and solving of societal problems. The several 
programs of the College are directed toward these 
problems and toward the improvement of the quality of 
life. 

The College seeks to provide the proper balance of 
educational experiences which prepare an individual 
in the professional context with those experiences 
which benefit him personally as a fully functioning 
and contributing member of society. This balance 
Includes grounding in basic and applied skills, as well as 
providing an atmosphere where creativity may flourish 
to enhance our potential for developing innovative 
solutions to societal problems. 

The faculty utilizes existing knowledge and generates 
new knowledge, techniques and methods based on 
research, while providing opportunities through 
laboratory, practical and field experiences for making 
knowledge and Innovative discovery more meaningful to 
the individual. Through these experiences the faculty 
experiments with varying relevant techniques and 
methods by which the individual can transfer to the 
soclety-at-large new Ideas and methods for more 
effective interaction within the social and physical 
ecosystems In which we function. 

Through teaching, research and service the College 



College of 
Human Ecology 



provides appropriate, comprehensive, quality education 
programs that prepare students for professional 
positionsdirected toward the improvement of conditions 
contributing to: 
1 The individual's psycho-social development. 

2. The quality and availability of community resources 
which enrich family life (in all its various forms). 

3. Effective resource utilization Including consumer 
competence. 

4. The Individual's physiological health and 
development. 

5. The physical and aesthetic components of man's 
environment. 

6. Effective use of leisure time. 

In accordance with the philosophy of this College all 
four departments are Interrelated and cooperate In the 
achievement of these goals. The activities of the 
Department of Family and Community Development 
emphasize mainly goals 1 through 3; the Department of 
Food, Nutrition and Institution Administration, 2 through 
4; and with different foci and priorities, the activities 
of the Departments of Textiles and Consumer 
Economics, and Housing and Applied Design emphasize 
goals 2, 3, and 5. Goal 3 Is concerned with consumer 
competence In areas such as food, clothing, shelter, 
transportation. Insurance, health, leisure, etc. It is an 
integrative. Interdisciplinary, educational concept which 
necessitates and receives contributions from all four 
departments. Goal 6 Is becoming increasingly 
important with a reduced work week, earlier retirement 
and Increases in the over-65 population, suggesting 
Interdepartmental and interdisciplinary programs. 
Objectives 

1. Offer appropriate comprehensive bachelor, master 
and doctoral programs that address the six goals 
stated above. 

2. Maximize resources and resource utilization In order 
to accomplish the six goals stated above. 

3. Act as a resource to the University community to 
stimulate awareness and Interest in the problems of 
applying knowledge for improving the quality of life.

The Department of Family and Community 
Development integrates and applies aspects of the 
natural and social sciences as well as the human arts — 
all of which enhance man's quest for a more fully 
functioning life. It places particular emphasis upon the 
allied departments within the College of Human Ecology 
which in turn addresses itself to the problems of man and 
his immediate environment. 

Specifically. Family and Community Development 
provides the applied human science integrationist with a 
firm foundation of knowledge of family and community 
dynamics leading to service, teaching, and research 
vocations. It also serves the University community by 
offering general courses germane to problems of living 
in a complex society, and stresses the concept of the 
family as the working interface between man. his 
society, and the world around him. 

There are four specific though related foci within the 
program leading to specialized areas of endeavor within 
the applied human sciences. 

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

II. Community Studies. This program emphasizes the 
processes of social change and the individual as agent 
within that process It is grounded upon the knowledge 
of community structure and the workings and 
interactions of the various subsystems. Its summary 
goals are the identification and utilization of community 
resources for the enhancement of a better life for 
families. 

III. Management and Consumer Studies. This 
program focuses upon the use of resources of the home 
and its impact upon the community. It examines the 
integration of individual, familial and societal values of 
our technological society for the purposes of goal 
Implementation within that society. It is an area of study 
directly concerned with quality of life and the preparing 
of the individual for effective consumer decisions 
through the understanding of the interrelationship of 
consumers, business, social organizations, and 
government. 

IV. l-lome Economics Education. Although often 
narrowly perceived as delimited to the role of educator 
within a secondary school setting. Home Economics 
Education has a larger purview and responsibility, i.e.. 
that of introducing and implementing through education 
at all levels, the theories, skills and philosophy of the 
attainment of a better life for all men. women and 
children. Thus it is the major interpreter of the 
ramifications and potential impact of Home Economics 
— the applied human sciences. 

These areas of concentration will prepare students for 
roles as family life educators, extension specialists, 
consumer consultants, mental health team members, 
and teachers of home economics at the secondary level. 

Family Studies Curriculum. Supportive courses will be 
selected from either Human Ecology, Sociology, 
Psychology. Health or Anthropology.

Food, Nutrition and Institution 
Administration 

Professor and Chairman: Prather. 

Professors: Ahrens, Beaton, Butler, Cox, Williams. 

Assistant Professor: Poplai. 

Instructors: Bouw^kamp, Grafiam, Mclntyre, Smith. 

Lecturer: Stewart. 

Visiting Lecturers: BIyler, Miller, Naranjo. 

The area of food, nutrition and institution 
administration is broad and offers many diverse 



professional opportunities. Courses introduce the 
student to the principles of selection, preparation and 
utilization of food for human health and the welfare of 
society. Emphasis is placed on the scientific, cultural and 
professional aspects of this broad area of food and 
nutrition. The department offers six areas of emphasis: 
experimental foods, community nutrition, nutrition 
research, dietetics, institution administration, and 
coordinated dietetics Each program provides for 
competencies in several areas of work; however, each 
option is designed specifically for certain professional 
careers 

All areas of emphasis have in common several courses 
within the department and the University; the curricula 
are identical in the freshman year 

Experimental foods is designed to develop 
competency in the scientific principles of food and their 
reactions. Physical and biological sciences in relation to 
foods are emphasized. The program is planned for 
students who are interested in product development, 
quality control and technical research in foods. The 
nutrition research program is designed to develop 
competency in the area of nutrition for students who 
wish to emphasize physical and biological sciences. The 
community nutrition program emphasizes applied 
community nutrition. Dietetics develops an 
understanding and competency in food, nutrition and 
management as related to problems of dietary 
departments; the curriculum is approved by the 
American Dietetic Association. The coordinated dietetic 
program includes clinical experience coordinated with 
the didactic components and the students are eligible 
for membership in the American Dietetic Association 
upon graduation Institution administration emphasis is 
related to the administration of quantity food service in 
university and college residence halls and student 
unions, school lunch programs in elementary and 
secondary schools, restaurants, coffee shops, and 
industrial cafeterias

Housing and Applied Design 

Prolessor and Chairman: Shearer 

Associate Professor: McWhinnie. 

Assistant Professors: Fish. Holvey, Nelson. Ritzmann. 

Roper. 

Instructors: Dean. Erdahl, Hlllerman. Irby, Odiand. 

Lecturers: Davis, Ribalta. 

The Department of Housing and Applied Design offers 
programs of concentration in five areas of design: 
Advertising; Costume; Crafts; Housing; Interior. 

The goal is that of providing a broad general education 
in addition to individually and professionally oriented 
instruction in design. Programs include instruction in the 
philosophy and methods common to the various areas of 
design and thus provide theoretical and technical bases 
pertinent to each. This foundation is basic to specific 
problem-solving activities which are applicable to the 
demands of each chosen design area. 

Advertising Design. The Advertising Design curriculum is 
constructed to establish a foundation in the field of 
graphic communication Courses are structured and 
arranged to provide students with the ability to 
conceptualize imaginatively and to acquire and apply a 
discriminating introspection for visual form. Courses in 
Art History and related areas provide breadth as well as 
depth. Opportunities to examine related fields are 
offered through elective courses. Students graduating 
from this curriculum gain a broad educational 
experience which qualifies them to initiate a career in 
many areas of graphic communications. 

Costume Curriculum. The Costume curriculum is 
structured to prepare students for employment in the 
many-faceted fashion industry. Advanced courses 
encourage interviews and on-the-job contacts with 
working professionals. By careful selection of elective 
courses and the allied-area block the program may be 
tailored to the student's goals. Graduates completing 
this major may choose careers in: fashion design, 
illustration, display and sales promotion, fashion 
reporting and public relations, fashion coordination, 
and photography 

Crafts Design. The Crafts curriculum provides the 
student with a wide range of art and design experience. 
After exposure to studio work in several craft media, the 
student should become proficient in at least one area. 
Opportunities for employment include: teaching in 
recreational and adult education programs, directing 
various forms of craft programs for the government, and 
as a producing craftsman. 

Housing Curriculum. This program is concerned with the 
exploration of factors which underlie housing problems, 
the extent of these problems as they exist today, and a 
projection to future trends and needs. Through 
integration of relevant research from sociology, 
economics, architecture, psychology and design, the 
program provides a transdisciplinary framework within 
which is developed an understanding of social and 
behavioral implications of housing processes and of 
effective design. 

Interior Design. This curriculum, successfully 
completed, provides the student with background in 
design theory; in history of architecture, interiors and 
furnishings; in functional and imaginative problem 
solving; and in techniques of presentation. A student 
organization and internships provide meaningful 
contact with practicing professionals.

College of 
Library and 
Information 
Services 



The College of Library and Information Services is a 

graduate program which draws its students from many 
undergraduate disciplines. Although many of the 
College of Library and Information Services students 
have degrees in the social sciences and humanities, 
there is an increasing interest in people with diverse 
backgrounds — in the sciences, for example. The 
continued influence of scientific advances, the variations 
in clientele and service patterns, and the constantly 
shifting character of the societal scene are among the 
factors which have significantly influenced and will 
doubtless influence all the more in the future the scope 
and character of library functions and responsibilities. 
The library and information professional in the 1970's 
must have competence in many disciplines if he or she is 
to serve well in the information centers, urban areas, 
public libraries, and school libraries. The College of 
Library and Information Services is a visionary school, 
attempting to produce people to fill contemporary needs. 

The library science education program at the 
undergraduate level fulfills the State of Maryland's 
requirements for the Educational Media Associate 



Certificate, Level I. Its graduates are prepared to work in 
school media centers under the guidance of the 
Educational Media Generalist, Level II, which is normally 
achieved with completion of the master's in library 
service degree. 

Because of the universal application of many 
principles of librarianship and media, students other 
than education students Interested in library and media 
courses may register for the undergraduate library 
science courses without being enrolled In the 
certification program. 

While the undergraduate program in library science 
education fulfills a great need in training school library 
and media personnel and persons to fill special roles, 
the master's degree program in the College of Library 
and Information Services is the recognized avenue for 
preparing fully qualified professionals in the library 
field. 

For information regarding the undergraduate library 
science education program, refer to the Index listing for: 
"Departments, Programs and Curricula. Library Science 
Education."

General Information — Entrance Requirements. All 
students desiring to enroll in the College of Physical 
Education. Recreation and Health must apply to the 
Director of Admissions of the University of Maryland at 
College Park. 

Sixteen units of high school credits are required for 
admittance to this College. Recommended courses are: 
four units of English, one unit of social science, one unit 
of natural science, two units in mathematics, and one 
unit of physical sciences. 

Guidance. At the time of matriculation and first 
registration, each student is assigned to a member of the 
faculty of the College who acts as the student's academic 
advisor. This faculty member will be in physical 
education, recreation or health education, depending 
on the student's choice of curriculum. The student 
should confer regularly with his advisor prior to each 
registration. 

Normal Load. The normal University load for students is 
12-21 credit hours per semester. No student may register 
for more than 19 hours unless he or she has a "B " 
average for the preceding semester and approval of the 
dean of the College. 

Electives. Electives should be planned carefully, and well 
in advance, preferably with the student's academic 
advisor. It is important to begin certain sequences as 
soon as possible to prevent later conflict. Electives may 
be selected from any department of the University in 
accordance with a student's professional needs. 

Freshman and Sophomore Program. The work of the first 
two years in this College is designed to accomplish the 
following purposes: (1) provide a general basic or core 




education and prepare for later specialization by giving 
a foundation in certain basic sciences; (2) develop 
competency in those basic techniques necessary for 
successful participation in the professional courses of 
the last two years 

The technique courses will vary considerably in the 
different curriculums and must be satisfactorily 
completed, or competencies demonstrated before the 
student can be accepted for the advanced courses in 
methods and in student teaching. It is very important that 
each requirement be met as it occurs. 

Student Teaching. Opportunity is provided for student 
teaching experience in physical education and health 
education. The student devotes one semester in the 
senior year to observation, participation, and teaching 
under a qualified supervising teacher in an approved 
Teacher Education Center A University supervisor from 
the College of Physical Education, Recreation and 
Health visits the student periodically and confers with 
the student teacher, the cooperating teacher, and the 
center coordinator, giving assistance when needed. 

To be eligible for student teaching, the student must: 
(1) have the recommendation of the University 
supervising teacher, and (2) must have fulfilled all 
required courses for the B.S. degree except those in the 
Block Student Teaching Semester, excluding those 
exceptions approved by each department The student 
must obtain a grade of C or better in all professional 
courses in his or her curriculum and must register for 
all courses in the "Block " concurrently. 

Field Work. Recreation major students are expected to 
carry out a number of field experiences during their 
University career: volunteer or part-time recreation 
employment during the school year, summer 
employment in camps or at playgrounds, etc. These 
experiences culminate in a senior semester of field work 
for which a student receives credit and during which the 
student works as a staff member (for 20 hours per week) 
in the field of recreation in which he or she hopes to be 
employed, such as public recreation, recreation for the 
exceptional, agencies (Ys, scouts, etc.), military 
recreation, etc. 

Degrees. The degree of Bachelor of Science is conferred 
upon students who have met the conditions of their 
curricula as herein prescribed by the College of Physical 
Education, Recreation and Health. 

Each candidate for a degree must file a formal 
application with the Registrations Office during the 
registration period, or not later than the end of the third 
week of classes of the regular semester, or at the end of 
the second week of the summer session, prior to the date 
of graduation. 

Certification. The Maryland State Department of 
Education certifies for teaching only when an applicant 
has a tentative appointment to teach in a Maryland 
county school. No certificate may be secured by 
application of the student on graduation. Course content 
requirements for certification are indicated with each 
curriculum. A student intending to qualify as a teacher 
in Baltimore, Washington or other specific situations 
should secure a statement of certification requirements 
before starting work in the junior year and discuss them 
with his or her academic advisor. 

Student Organizations and Activities 

l^ajors' Club. All students enrolled in the College are 
eligible for membership in this organization. It conducts 
various professional meetings, brings in speakers and 
promotes various corecreational activities. It has 
sponsored trips to district and national conventions of 
the American Association for Health, Physical Education 
and Recreation, and is chartered as a student major club 
of that organization. 

Aqualiners. This synchronized swimming club is open 
to all men and women registered in the University. 
Through weekly meetings the group concentrates on 
additional stroke perfection, individual and group stunts. 

ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS / 103 



diving, and experimentation with various types of 
accompaniment and choreographic techniques. An 
original water show is presented each spring and several 
demonstrations are given each year. Tryouts are held 
twice a year — once at the beginning of the fall semester, 
and again after the water show during the spring 
semester 

University of Maryland Recreation and Parks Society. 
In the fall of 1959 the University of Maryland Recreation 
and Parks Society was formed by the undergraduate and 
graduate major and minor students of the College. The 
society, an affiliate of the State and national recreation 
organizations, provides opportunities for University and 
community service, for rich practical experience, and for 
social experiences for those students having a mutual 
professional recreation interest 

Gymkana Troupe. The Gymkana Troupe includes 
men and women students from all Colleges who wish 
to express themselves through the medium of 
gymnastics. These individuals coordinate their talents 
in order to produce an exhibitional performance that 
has been seen in many places including Bermuda, 
Iceland, the Azores, Idaho, tviontana, and the eastern 
seaboard of the United States The organization has 
three principal objectives: (1) to provide healthful, 
co-recreational activities that provide fun for the 
students during their leisure hours; (2) to promote 
gymnastics in this locality; and (3) to entertain our 
students and people in other communities 

This organization is co-sponsored by the Physical 
Education Department and the Student Government 
Association, and it welcomes any student, regardless of 
the amount of experience, to join. 

Intramural Sports For Men. The Intramural Sports 
Department offers organized competition in 20 sports 
activities: touch football, soccer, golf, horseshoes, 
tennis, cross country and handball in the fall; basketball, 
bowling, weightlifting, swimming, wrestling and chess 
during the winter; and badminton, table tennis, 
volleyball, foul shooting, racquetball, softball and 
outdoor track in the spring. 

In these sports, competition is conducted as single 
elimination, best performance, or round robin 
tournaments for five separate classifications — open 
(commuters, etc.), dormitory residents, fraternity 
members/pledges, graduate students and faculty/staff 
members. The Intramural Sports Director meets 
regularly with an Advisory Council composed of a 
representative from each of these categories. 

Indoor facilities such as Reckord Armory and Ritchie 
Coliseum are also made available in the evenings and on 
the weekends for recreational use. 

Many good paying employment opportunities exist in 
the program as positions such as referees, tournament 
directors, field liners, publicists and photographers are 
always available. 

Call 454-5454, a 24-hour recording, for information 
concerning tournament entry dates, game results, hours 
for recreational facilities, inclement weather 
postponements or last minute changes.

the secondary school. (2) for coaching, and (3) for 
leadership in youth and adult groups which offer a 
program of physical activity The first two years of this 
curriculum are considered to be an orientation period in 
which the student has an opportunity to gain an 
adequate background in general education as well as in 
those scientific areas closely related to this field of 
specialization In addition, emphasis is placed upon the 
development of skills in a wide range of motor activities. 
Further, students are encouraged to select related areas, 
especially in the fields of biology, social sciences, 
psychology, health education, and recreation as fields of 
secondary interest. These materially increase the 
vocational opportunities which are available to a 
graduate in physical education

Kinesiological Sciences. A new degree curriculum is 
available for interested students from the Department of 
Physical Education. It is designed for those students who 
are vitally interested in the fascinating realm of sport and 
the human activity sciences, but not necessarily 
interested in preparing for teaching in the public 
schools. The body of knowledge explored by this 
curriculum may be described briefly as follows: 

The history of sport, both ancient and contemporary, 
its philosophical foundations and the study of social 
factors as they relate to human behavior. 
Biomechanics, exercise physiology, the theoretical 
bases and effects of physical activity, neuromotor 
learning and the psychological factors inherent in 
physical performance. 

The quantification and description of performance 
and the relation of these factors to human 
development. 

The program makes possible the broad use of elective 
credit so that various student interests may be 
combined on an interdisciplinary basis. With such 
possibilities available, graduates could reasonably set 
their sights on occupations in the paramedical fields, 
such as stress testing and human factors, athletic 
involvements such as trainers, scouts, sports 
publicists, or advance to further study in the therapies, 
as well as graduate work in physical education and allied 
fields.

Recreation 

Professor and Chairman: Humphrey. 
Associate Professors: Churchill, Strobell. 
Assistant Professors: Leedy, Thompson. 
Instructors: Becker, Colton, Fain. 

The increased amount of leisure time existent in our 
society because of the rapid development of modern 
civilization, and the imperative need for guidance in the 



wise use of that leisure time, has made society cognizant 
o( the need for trained recreation leaders 

This curriculum, therefore, is designed to meet the 
needs of students who wish to qualify for the many 
positions in the field of recreation, and the needs of those 
students who desire a background in skills which will 
enable them to render distinct contributions to 
community life. The department draws upon various 
other departments and colleges within the University for 
courses to balance and enrich its offerings for its 
recreation curriculum 

Those majoring in recreation have opportunity for 
observation and practical experience in local, county, 
state, and federal public recreation programs, in social 
and group work agency programs, and in the various 
programs of the Armed Forces, American Red Cross, 
local hospitals, etc. Maior students are encouraged to 
select an option area' of interest around which to center 
their elective courses (for instance: public recreation, 
recreation for the ill and handicapped, outdoor 
recreation, program planning, and resource planning 
and management). 

A very active student University of Maryland 
Recreation and Parks Society, an affiliate of the 
comparable state and national organizations, exercises 
degrees of leadership in selecting the annual 
"outstanding senior" and outstanding alumnus" 
awards, in the granting of the various city, county and 
state society recreation scholarships, in the 
programming of the annual Governor's Conference on 
Recreation,' etc. It also provides opportunities for 
university and community services, tor rich practical 
experience, and for social experiences for those 
students having a mutual professional recreation 
interest. 

Many outstanding practitioners/educators reside in 
the Metropolitan Washington, DC. area. It is the practice 
of the Department to enrich its course offerings through 
the use of these individuals as extensively as possible.

arts and social studies as part of the General University 
Requirements. 

Each program lays a broad baseiorcontinued learning 
after college in professional practice, in business or 
industry, in public service, or in graduate study and 
research. 

Increasingly, the boundary between engineers and 
applied scientists or applied mathematicians becomes 
less distinct. The various disciplines of engineering 
similarly Interact with each other, as technical problems 
become more sophisticated, and require a combined 
attack from several disciplines The engineer occupies 
an intermediate position between science and the public.

principles, the engineer Is concerned with the timing, 
economics and values that define the useful application 
of those principles 

College Regulations. The responsibility for proper 
registration and for satisfying stated prerequisites for 
any course rests 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 
Ibe Academic Regulations, contained in Section 1. 

1. General Information, and other pertinent 
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 average 
of at least C — 2.0 — (a) in all subjects applicable to 
the degree, and (b) in all junior-senior courses in the 
major field Responsibility for knowing and meeting all 
degree requirements for graduation in any curriculum 
rests with the student 

4. A student in the College of Engineering may audit 
a course only with the understanding that the course 
may not be taken tor credit subsequent to the registration 
as audit The student must also have the consent of the 
department offering the course Forms requesting 
permission to audit courses are available in the 
Engineering Student Affairs Office. J-1107.

5 The College ot Engrneering requires that a 
minimum of eighteen (18) semester credit hours out o( 
the 30 hour General University Requirements be taken in 
the general area of humanities and social sciences 
(H&SS) The program selected should be planned to 
reflect a rationale or to fulfill an objective appropriate 
to the engineering profession and to increase the 
engineer's awareness of social responsibilities and 
improve the ability to consider related factors in the 
decision-making process Skill, or professionally 
oriented courses treating such subjects as accounting, 
industrial management, finance, personnel 
administration, the performing arts, certain education 
courses, and introductory foreign languages normally do 
not fulfill this objective and may not be included m the 
eighteen (18) semester hour requirement of the College 
Engineering students may obtain in the Engineering 
Student Affairs Office (J-1107) a list of many courses 
which satisfy this "-equirement. 

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

1 . Courses in the General University Requirements — 
An engineering student must include eighteen credits of 
humanities and social sciences in the program of general 
studies. 

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

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

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

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

Basic Format of the Freshman-Sophomore Years in 
Engineering. The freshman and sophomore years in 
engineering are designed to lay a strong foundation in 
mathematics, physical sciences and the engineering 
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% of the sophomore year course requirements 
are common, thus affording the student a maximum 
flexibility in choosing a specific area of engineering 
specialization. Although the engineering student 
selects a major field at the start of the sophomore year, 
this intramural program commonality affords the student 
the maximum flexibility of choice or interdepartmental 
transfer up to the end of the sophomore year.

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 (3) academic years 
(minimum 90 hours) and the University of Maryland. 
College of Engineering for approximately two (2) 
academic years (minimum hours required — 



ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS / 109 



determined Individually, approximately 60 hours). 

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

Frostburg State College, Notre Dame College, Trinity 
College and American University are participating 
institutions in the Dual Degree Program At the present 
time several other colleges are developing cooperative 
agreements to participate in the program. A complete 
list of participating institutions may be obtained from 
the Engineering Student Affairs Office (J-1107) of the 
College of Engineering. 

Co-operative Engineering Education Program. The 

Maryland Plan for Co-operative Engineering Education 
at the University of Maryland, offered by the College of 
Engineering, is a four and one half to five calendar year 
program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree The 
academic requirements for students following the Co-op 
Plan of Education are identical to the academic 
requirements for those students following the regular 
four-year program. In addition to the normal academic 
requirements. Co-op students have scheduled periods 
of professional internship which must be satisfactorily 
completed to qualify for the baccalaureate degree under 
the Co-op Plan 

The Co-op Program begins after the student has 
completed the freshman and sophomore requirements 
of a major field. The structure of Engineering Co-op is an 
alternating sequence of study and internship. As far as 
Co-op is concerned, there are three sessions — fall and 
spring semesters (20 weeks each) and a summer session 
(10 weeks). This alternating plan of study and 
professional internship lengthens the last two academic 
years into three calendar years. Delaying entry into the 
Co-op Program until the junior year offers considerable 
educational advantages to the student. 

The student retains the normal freshman-sophomore 
program to afford time for the selection of a major 
field of engineering ... or to determine whether to 
continue in engineering . . . without a commitment to 
either the regular four-year or the Co-op Plan of 
Education. A more mature and meaningful series of 
professional internship assignments are possible to 
benefit both the student and the professional partner. 
Also, the plan is readily adaptable to the needs of the 
student transferring to the University from the 
engineering transfer programs of community or state 
colleges. 



Students need only meet two criteria for entry into the 
Engineering Co-op Program They are (1), completion 
of the sophomore requirements (usually about 65 degree 
credits) and (2), the establishment of a cumulative grade 
point average at the University ot Maryland of at least 
a 2.0/4.0. 

A typical study-intern schedule is shown below. The 
typical student begins the first internship in the summer 
Immediately following the sophomore year (65 
accumulated degree credits) The total internship is for 
two summers and two semesters (60 weeks) The student 
enrolls for 16 semester hours each during the fall and 
spring semesters, 12 semester hours during the summer 
and three semester hours in the evening during two 
internship periods.

Students make their own arrangements for board and 
lodging while on their periods of internship. Frequently 
the participating industrial company or governmental 
agency will assist the student in locating good, 
inexpensive lodging. The internship wages are paid 
directly to the student by his or her employer. 

During the semesters or summer sessions in which 
the student attends school, the student pays the regular 
tuition and fees assessed by the University. A $30 fee Is 
charged for each 10-week period of professional 
internship. The professional intern fee is payable at the 
beginning of each intern period and is not refundable. 



Engineering 
Departments, 
Programs and 
Curricula 



Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering 

The "B.S. -Engineering" program is designed to serve 
three primary functions: (1) to prepare those students 
who wish to use the breadth and depth of their 
engineering education as a preparatory vehicle for entry 
into post-baccalaureate study in such fields as medicine, 
law, or business administration: (2) to provide the basic 
professional training for those students who wish to 
continue their engineering studies on the graduate level 
in one of the newer 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 serve in one or more of the 
many auxiliary or management positions of engineering 
related industries The program is designed to give the 
maximum flexibility for tailoring a program to the 
specific future career plans of the student. To 
accomplish these objectives, the program has two 
optional paths: an engineering option and an applied 
science option. 

The "Engineering ■ option 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 engineering, and systems 



and control 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, ctiemical. or mechanical engineering. 

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

Listed below are the minimum requirements for the 
B.S -Engineering degree with either an Engineering 
option or an Applied Science option. The 66 semester 
credit hours required for the completion of the lunlor and 



110 / ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS 



senior years is superimposed upon the freshman and 
sophomore curriculum of the chosen primary field of 
engineering. The student, thus, does not make a 
decision whether to take the designated or the 
undesignated degree in an engineering field until the 
beginning of the junior year In fact, the student can 
probably delay the decision until the spring term of the 
junior year with little or no sacrifice, thus affording the 
student ample time lor decision. Either program may be 
taken on the regular 4-year format or under the Maryland 
Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education.

In addition, the field of Fire Protection is available 
within the applied science option as a primary field. All 
engineering fields of concentration may be used as a 
secondary field within the engineering option. 

(1) Engineering sciences, (or the purpose of this degree are those courses 
in the Engineering College prefixed by ENES or, are in an engineering 
field not the primary or secondary field of engineering concentration 

(2) Students following the Engineering option may use up to six sh ot 
course wo/k at the 100 or 200 course number level in the primary or the 
secondary field of engineering concentration as an engineering science. 

(3) A minimum of 50''. ot the course work in the mathematics, physical 
sciences, engineering sciences and elective areas must be at the 300 or 
400 course number level 

(4) All ot the courses used to fulfill the fields of concentration requirements 
(36 sh in the engineering option and 30 in the Applied Science option) 
must be at the 300 course number level or above. 

(5) For the applied science option each student is required — unless 
specifically excused, and if excused. 15 sh. of approved electives will be 
required — to satisfactorily complete a senior level project or research 
assignment relating the engineering and science fields of concentration 

(6) In the Engineering option, the 6 sh of electives must be technical 
(math, physical sciences, or engineering sciences but may not b' 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 

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 50 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. At least one 
semester before the expected degree is to be granted, 
the student must file an Application for Admission to 
Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering " with the Dean's Office of the College of 
Engineering. The candidacy form must be approved by 



the chairman of the primary field department, the primary 
engineering and the secondary field advisors and the 
college faculty committee on Undesignated Degree 
Programs " This committee has the responsibility for 
implementing all approved policies pertaining to this 
program and reviewing and acting on the candidacy 
forms filed by the student 

Specific University and College academic regulations 
apply to this undesignated degree program In the same 
manner as they apply to the conventional designated 
degree programs. For example, the academic 
regulations of the University apply as stated in the 
College Park Catalog of the University of Maryland, and 
the College requirement of 2.00 factor in the major field 
during the junior and senior years apply 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. 

Environmental Engineering. Environmental engineering 
is the application of basic engineering and science to the 
problems of the environment to ensure optimum 
environmental quality. In recent years, humans have 
suffered a continually deteriorating environment. A truly 
professional engineer involved in the study of 
environmental engineering must see the total picture 
and relate it to a particular mission whether this be air 
pollution, water quality control, environmental health 
or solid and liquid waste disposal. The total picture 
includes urban systems design, socio-economic 
factors, regional planning, transportation, recreation, 
water resource development, and land and resource 
conservation. 

A student who selects the B.S.-Engineering degree 
program can specialize in environmental engineering by 
proper selection of primary and secondary fields from 
the wide selection of courses related to environmental 
engineering given by the various departments in the 
College. 

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

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree 
provides the student an excellent opportunity to 
develop a professional level of competence in an 
engineering discipline while at the same time meeting 
the entrance requirements for medical school. Under 
the Applied Science option, the student could select any 
engineering field of most interest to him, and his or her 
secondary field would usually be Chemistry or Zoology. 
In addition to the medical school entrance requirements, 
he or she would complete 12 credits of advanced work 
in his or her secondary field. 

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

Aerospace engineering is focused on the physical 
understanding and design considerations of aircraft and 
space vehicles of all kinds. For example, consider the 
high-speed flight of NASA's future Space Shuttle. The 
airflow over the wings, fuselage and tail surfaces creates 
lift, drag and moments on the aircraft. If the velocity 
is high enough, such as during re-entry of the Apollo 
into the Earth's atmosphere, then the temperature of 
the airflow becomes extremely high, the air becomes 
chemically reacting, and heating of the vehicle's surface 
becomes a major problem. The study of how and why 
the airflow produces these forces, moments and 
heating is called Aerodynamics. In turn, the motion of 
the aircraft or space vehicle will respond to, indeed will 
be determined by, the aerodynamic forces and moments. 
The study of the motion and flight path of such vehicles 
is called Flight Mechanics. Of course, while executing 
this motion, the vehicle must be structurally sound, that 
is, its surface and internal structure must be able to 
withstand the severe forces and loads associated with 
flight. The study of the mechanical behavior of materials, 
stresses and strains, deflections and vibrations that are 
associated with the structure of the vehicle itself is called 
Flight Structures. In the same vein, the motion of any 
aircraft or space vehicle must be Initiated and 
maintained by a propulsive mechanism such as the 
classic combination of a reciprocating engine with a 
propeller, or the more modern turbojets, ramjets and 
rockets. The study of the physical fundamentals of how 
these engines work is called Flight Propulsion. Finally, 
all of the above are synthesized into one system with a 
specific application — such as a complete DC-10 or a 
Skylab — through a discipline called Aerospace Vehicle 
Design. 

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at the 
University of fvlaryland offers a rigorous and balanced 
education which includes all of the above disciplines. 
The goal of this program is to create professionally 
oriented aerospace engineers with an understanding of 
the physical fundamentals underlying atmospheric and 
space flight, and with the capability of applying this 
knowledge for useful and exciting purposes. Moreover, 
the physical background and design synthesis that 
marks aerospace engineering education also prepares a 
student to work productively in other fields. For example, 
at this moment aerospace engineers are actively working 
on the solution of environmental and societal problems, 
on the energy crisis, and in the field of medicine.

The Chemical Engineering Department offers 
programs in chemical, materials and nuclear 
engineering. In addition, study programs in the areas of 
applied polymer science, biological and environmental 
health engineering are available. The latter programs are 
interdisciplinary with other departments of the 
University. 

The departmental programs prepare an under- 
graduate for continued graduate study or immediate 
industrial employment following the baccalaureate 
degree. 

The Chemical Engineering program involves the 
application of sound engineering and economic 
principles — and basic sciences of mathematics, physics 
and chemistry — to process industries concerned with 
the chemical transformation of matter. The chemical 
engineer is primarily concerned with research and 
process development leading to new chemical process 
venturesorabetter understanding of existing ones; with 
the efficient operation of the complete chemical plant 
or its component units; with the technical services 
engineering required for improving and understanding 
chemical plant operation and the products produced; 
with the chemical sales and economic distribution of the 




chemical plant product; and with the general 
management and executive direction of chemical 
process industry plants and industrial complexes. 

Because of this wide range of ultimate applications, 
the chemical engineer finds interesting and diverse 
career opportunities in such varied fields as chemical 
(Inorganic and organic), food processing and 
manufacture, metallurgical, nuclear and energy 
conversion, petroleum (refining, production, or 
petrochemical), and pharmaceutical industries. 
Additional opportunities are presented by the research 
and development activities of many public and private 
research institutes and allied agencies.

Civil Engineering Curriculum. Civil engineering is 
concerned with the planning, design, construction and 
operation of large facilities associated with mans 
environment. Civil engineers specialize in such areas as 
environmental engineering, transportation systems, 
structures, water resource development, water supply 
and pollution control, urban and regional planning, 
construction management, and air pollution control. 
Many civil engineers enter private practice as consulting 
engineers or start their own businesses in the 
construction industry. Others pursue careers with local, 
state, and federal agencies or with large corporations. 
The undergraduate program is founded on the basic 
sciences and emphasizes the development of a high 
degree of technical competence. The program orients 
the student toward computer aided design techniques 
and prepares him or her to incorporate new concepts 
that will develop during his or her professional career. 
Further, the program stresses the balance between 
technical efficiency and the needs of society. The 
graduate is prepared to enter one of the areas 
mentioned above, or he or she can move into new areas 
of specialization such as oceanographic engineering or 
the development of facilities for extra-terrestrial 
environments. 

At no time has man been more concerned with the 
quality of the environment. Man is concerned with broad 
environmental problems such as pollution and the 
operation of transportation systems. Man is also 
concerned with problems such as a need for new 
approaches in the design and construction of buildings. 
The civil engineering profession faces the greatest 
challenge in its history as it assumes a central role in the 
solution of the physical problems facing the urban- 
regional complex.

Flexibility is the main characteristic of the program in 
Electrical Engineering. The student can specialize, or 
he or she can have a broader education, as he or she 
chooses. This is established through broad elective 
structure both within and outside the Electrical 
Engineering Department. 

Specialization areas available to the student are: 
Biomedical, Circuits, Communications, Computers, 
Control, and Electrophysics. These areas include such 
fields as: Electronics, Integrated Circuits, 
Bioelectronics. Solid State Devices, Lasers, Radar. 
Radio, Space Navigation, Information Theory, Telemetry, 
Antennas, Automatic Control, System Theory, 
Cybernetics, Computer Software and Hardware, Particle 
Accelerators, Electromechanical Transducers, Energy 
Conversion, and many others. 

Apprenticeship programs allow qualified under- 
graduate students to work with research laboratory 
directors in the Department, thus giving the student a 
chance for a unique experience in research and 
engineering design. 

Projects in Electrical Engineering allow under- 
graduate students to do independent study under the 
guidance of a faculty member in an area of mutual 
interest. 

A new Fundamentals Laboratory and several Specialty 
Laboratory courses have been established These are 
self contained and may be taken independently of related 
theoretical courses. These laboratories provide 



theoretical and practical experience in classical and 
modern topics using up-to-date equipment 

The boundary between electrical engineering and 
applied mathematics or applied physics is becoming 
steadily less distinct, particularly at the research level 
Simultaneously, the technological problems and needs 
of society are becoming steadily more complex. The 
engineer is the intermediary between science and 
society To solve the problems of modern society he 
or she must fully understand the most modern devices 
and methodologies available. To find the best solution he 
or she must have a very broad interdisciplinary 
education. To find a solution that is also acceptable to 
society he or she must be concerned with the economic, 
ecologic and human factors involved in the problem. 
Finally, current research topics frequently require a 
thorough knowledge of advanced mathematics and 
physics. 

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

To go along with this freedom, the Department has a 
system of undergraduate advising. The student is 
encouraged to discuss his or her program and career 
plans with his or her advisor in order to get maximum 
benefit from the new curriculum.

Engineering materials is the study of the relationship 
between structure and properties of materials. The 
principles of physics, chemistry and mathematics are 
applied to metals, ceramics, polymers and composite 
materials used in industrial applications. In addition to 
the traditional area of metallurgy, engineering materials 
includes the fields of solid state physics and polymer 
and materials science and their application to modern 
industrial problems. Because of the extensive use of 
materials, the engineering student finds a wide variety 
of interesting career opportunities in many companies 
and laboratories. Materials research is particularly 
important in the development of new energy-conversion 
systems.

Fire Protection Engineering Program 

Professor and Chairman: Bryan. 
Assistant Professor: Hickey. 
Lecturers: Brannigan (p.t.). Watts. 

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

The fundamental principles of fire protection 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 the protection but of the processes 
themselves. Often the most effective solution to the 
problem of safeguarding a hazardous operation lies in 
the modification of special extinguishing equipment. 
The expert in fire protection 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. 

Ivlodern 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 and the development ol the 
individual student. 

The problems and challenges which confront the 
specialist in fire protection 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.

Fire Science — Urban Studies 

The provision of a major field of specialization in 
Fire Science for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Urban 
Studies is designed to meet the professional 
educational needs and objectives of fire service 
personnel The broad interdisciplinary nature of the 
Urban Studies program will provide public fire safety 
personnel with a technical background and 
understanding of urban considerations in public fire 
safety 

High school seniors interested in the field of fire 
science are encouraged to enroll in a community college 
program The Urban Studies — Fire Science Degree 
program requires that an individual complete an 
approved associate degree program in Fire Science. The 
upper division of a four year program leading to a B.S. 
in Urban Studies — Fire Science is taken at the College 
Park Campus. 

The upper division fire science courses are structured 
to build on fundamental concepts developed at the 
communify college level The primary focus of these 
courses is the analysis of current technology in fire 
protection, urban fire service delivery criteria, and 
research for the improved provision of public fire safety.

The primary function of the mechanical engineer is to 
create devices, machines, structures or processes which 
are used to advance the welfare of mankind. Design, 
analysis and testing are the essential steps in these 
developments Of particular importance are the aspects 
of engineering science and art relating to the generation 
and transmission of mechanical power, the 
establishment of both experimental and theoretical 
models of mechanical systems, the static and dynamic 
behavior of fluids and the optimization of materials in 
design. Emphasis is also given to the proper 
co-ordination and management of facilities and 
personnel to achieve a successful product or service. 

The responsibility of the Mechanical Engineering 
profession is extremely broad. The following divisions 
of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers 
indicate many of the technical areas in which the 
mechanical engineer may work: air pollution, applied 
mechanics, automatic controls, aviation and space, 
biomechanical and human factors, design engineering, 
diesel and gas engine power, energetics, fluids 
engineering, fuels, gas turbine, heat transfer, 
management, materials handling, metals engineering, 
nuclear engineering, petroleum, power, pressure 
vessels and piping, process industries, railroad, rubber 
and plastics, safety, solar energy, textiles and 
underwater technology. 

There are many career opportunities in all of these 
fields. In particular, the areas of design, systems 
analysis, management, consulting, research, 
maintenance, production, teaching and sales offer 
challenging and rewarding futures. 

Because of the wide variety of professional 
opportunities available to the mechanical engineer, the 
curriculum is designed to provide the student with a 
thorough training in basic fundamentals including 
physics, chemistry, mathematics, mechanics, 
thermodynamics, materials, heat transfer, electronics, 
power and design. The curriculum leads to a Bachelor 
of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering which is 
usually sufficient for early career opportunities in 
industry or the government. Advanced graduate 
programs are available for continued study leading to 
Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

Nuclear engineering deals with the practical use 
of nuclear energy from nuclear fission, fusion, and 
radioisotope sources. The major use of nuclear 
energy is in electric power generation. Other uses are 
in the areas of chemical processing, medicine, 
instrumentation, and isotope tracer analysis The 



nuclear engineer is primarily concerned with the design 
and operation of energy conversion devices ranging 
from very large reactors to miniature nuclear batteries, 
and with the use of nuclear reactions m many 
environmental, biological and chemical processes. 
Because of the wide range of uses for nuclear systems, 
the nuclear engineer finds interesting and diverse career 
opportunities in a variety of companies and laboratories. 

Programs of study in nuclear engineering at the 
undergraduate and graduate level are offered through 
the Chemical Engineering Department. Students may 
use nuclear engineering as a field of concentration in the 
Bachelor of Science in Engineering Program. 

Students choosing nuclear engineering as their 
primary field may pursue the following example 
curriculum. Students electing nuclear engineering as 
their secondary field should seek advice from a member 
of the nuclear engineering faculty.

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

Students intending to major in astronomy who have a 
high school course in physics and who have adequate 
preparation in mathematics to qualify for admission to 
MATH 140 will ordinarily take the introductory physics 
course PHYS 1 91 , 1 92, 293 and 294 during their freshman 
and sophomore years. Those students who do not 
decide to major in astronomy or physics until after their

freshman or sophomore year or enter as transfer 
students will often have taken other Introductory courses 
in physics (e.g. PHYS 161. 262, 263). Students will find 
further details in the pamphlet entitled Department 
Requirements for a B.S. degree in Astronomy, which is 
available from the Astronomy Program Office. This 
pamphlet outlines many different approaches for an 
astronomy major. 

ASTR 181, 182 (Introductory Astronomy and 
Astrophysics) is the introductory astronomy course 
required of astronomy majors. It may be taken in the 
freshman or sophomore year. It is followed by another 
required course, ASTR 210 (Practical Astronomy). Some 
students may not decide to ma|or in astronomy until 
they have already taken ASTR 100 and 105 (Introduction 
to Astronomy and Modern Astronomy). Such students 
should, as a rule, still fulfill the ASTR 181, 182 
requirement: only students with a grade of B or better 
In ASTR 100 and 105 will be encouraged to ma)or in 
astronomy. For those students with the appropriate 
physics background, it would be preferable to take a 
one semester introductory course, ASTR 350, instead of 
the ASTR 181, 182 sequence. 

Astronomy majors are required to take the following 
physics courses: PHYS 191, 192, 195. 196, 293, 294, 
295 and 296 (161, 262, 263 plus 404-405 may be 
substituted for this sequence in some cases). In addition, 
one of the following sequences is required: PHYS 421- 
422 or 410-411. Required supporting courses are (ylATH 
140, 141 and 240 or 241 or 246. The introductory 
astronomy courses, ASTR 1 81 , 1 82 (or ASTR 350) and 21 
plus any two 400-level ASTR courses (6 credits) complete 
the requirements. The program requires that the student 
maintain an average grade of C in all astronomy courses: 
moreover, the average grade of all the required physics 
and mathematics courses must also be C or better. Any 
student who wishes to be recommended for graduate 
work in astronomy must maintain a B average. He or she 
should also consider including several additional 
advanced courses, beyond the minimum required, to be 
selected from astronomy, physics and mathematics. 

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

Students for the Honors Program are accepted by the 
Department's Honors Committee on the basis of 
recommendations from their advisors and other faculty 
members. I^ost 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." 

Courses for Non-Science Majors. There are a variety of 
Astronomy courses offered for those who are interested 
in learning about the subject but do not wish to major 
in it. These courses do not require any background in 
mathematics or physics and are geared especially to the 
non-science major ASTR 1 00 is a general survey course 
that briefly covers all of the major parts of Astronomy. 
ASTR 1 10 is the lab that can be taken with or after ASTR 
100 Several 300-level courses are offered primarily for 
non-science students who want to learn about a 
particular field in depth. In ASTR 398 the subject matter 
will change each semester and will cover such topics as: 
Life in the Universe, Our Milky Way Galaxy, the New 
Astronomy As a rule. 398's. like ASTR 330 (solar system) 
and ASTR 340 (galaxies and the universe), have no 
prerequisites beyond junior standing

Requirements for a Computer Science Major. The 

course of study for each Computer Science major must 
include at least 30 credit hours of CMSC courses with 
an overall average of C or better All CMSC courses are 
counted in the ma|or. A minimum of 24 of the 30 credit 
hours must be at the 300-400 levels. 

Each student s program must satisfy the General 
University Requirements (30 credit hours). No CMSC 
course or specified prerequisite of a CMSC course may 
be counted toward these requirements 

Additional courses as electives must be completed to 
obtain the minimum 120 credit hours required for 
graduation Students may wish to choose their electives 
to satisfy the requirements of another department's 
degree program and. by so doing, qualify for a double 
major. 

Introductory Computer Science Courses. The 

Department offers a choice of courses. CMSC 103. 110, 
for students with little or no computer background. 

CMSC 103 IS considered a terminal course for 
non-majors It provides an introduction to the use of a 
computer and programming in the language FORTRAN. 
Students who complete CMSC 103 but want to take 
additional CMSC courses should contact an advisor as 
soon as possible to determine what additional work may 
be necessary to qualify for CMSC 120 

Non-majors who may want to take additional CMSC 
courses should take CMSC 110 instead of CMSC 103. 
The two courses are of comparable difficulty, and the 
material is similar. As a terminal course. CMSC 103 
attempts to cover more topics but at less depth than 
CMSC 110. 

Majors should take the CMSC 110. 120 sequence in 
their first year. Those students who have programming 
background in a language such as FORTRAN should 
consult an advisor to determine if they need to take 
CMSC 110 or if they could obtain credit for it by 
examination. Credit by examination is possible for CMSC 
110 or 120. or for any other undergraduate level 
computer science course for which transfer credit has 
not been given 

Undergraduate Computer Science Courses. Beginning 
with courses at the 200 level, each student may arrange 
an individualized program by choosing areas of interest 
within computer science and then taking courses 
appropriate to those areas. The Department offers the 
following undergraduate courses in the areas Indicated : 
Applications: CMSC 280. 475. 477, 480; Computer 
Systems; CMSC 210, 410, 415; Information Processing: 
CMSC 220, 420; Numerical Analysis: CMSC 270. 460, 
470; Programming Languages: CMSC 440, 445; and 
Theory of Computing: CMSC 250, 450, 452. 455. 

In addition, special topics courses (CMSC 498) are 
offered in one or more areas each semester. (Graduate 
level courses are offered in all of these areas as part of 
the Department's M.S. and PhD degree programs.) 

The student may choose from a large variety of 
computer science courses to satisfy the requirement of a 
minimum of 30 credit hours of CMSC courses. Although 
there are currently no requirements for specific courses 
outside of the major, a proposal to require MATH 1 40 and 
MATH 141 is pending approval. A number of advanced 
courses in computer science have additional 
mathematics such as MATH 240 and 241 as 
prerequisites. Students who anticipate continuing 
their studies in graduate school should complete the 
sequence MATH 140, 141, 240, 241.

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

A student intending to major in mathematics should 
complete the introductory sequence MATH 140. 141.240. 
241 or the corresponding honors sequence MATH 150, 
151. 250. 251 and should have an average grade of at 
least B in these courses 

A mathematics major is required to complete MATH 
410. 41 1 , either 403 or 402 and five other upper division 
courses (24 credits). A linear algebra course is also 
required and this requirement may be satisfied by one of 
the following; MATH 240, 400, 405 or 474. A grade of C 
or better must be presented for each course used to meet 
the MATH/STAT major requirements. 

The requirements are detailed in a departmental 
brochure which is available through the Undergraduate 
Mathematics Office. Appropriate courses taken at other 
universities or through University College may be used to 
fulfill these requirements, but at least four of the eight 
required upper division MATH/STAT courses must be 
taken in the Department of Mathematics. i 

In addition to the above, a mathematics major must 
include at least 10 credit hours of science supporting 
course work with a grade average of at least C. A list of 
approved science sequences may be obtained from the 
Mathematics Undergraduate Office. J 

Within the Department of Mathematics there are a I 
number of identifiable areas which a student can pursue ' 
to suit his/her own goals and interests. They are briefly 
described below Note that they do overlap and that a 
student need not confine himself'herself to one of them. J 

1. Pure Mathematics the courses which clearly , 
belong in this area are; MATH 402. 403. 404. 405. 406. I 
410. 411.413. 414. 415, 416, 417, 430, 431 , 432, 433, 436. | 
444, 446. 447. 450. Students preparing for graduate \ 
school in mathematics should include MATH 403. 404 

or 405. 410, 411, 413 (or 660), and 432 (or 730) in their 
programs. Other courses from the above list and 
graduate courses are also appropriate 

2. Secondary teachmg; the following courses are 
particularly suited for students preparing to teach 
mathematics at the secondary level; MATH 402. 406. 
430. 431, 444, 450, STAT 400, and EDSE 372 (EDSE 372 
is acceptable as one of the eight upper level math 
courses required for a mathematics major.) In addition. 
EDHD 300. EDSF 301 . EDSE 350. and 330 are necessary 
to teach. Immediately after completing at least 42 credits, 
you mustapplyforand be admitted toteachereducation. 

3. Statistics; for a student with a B.A. seeking work ^ 
requiring some statistical background, the minimal 
program is STAT 400-401 To work primarily as a I 
statistician, one should combine STAT 400-401 with at ' 
least one more statistics course, most suitably 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 applications) For economics applications 
STAT 400. 401. 450. 477 should be considered. For 
operations research STAT 477 and/or 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. 421. 450 and 477 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 MATH 460. 470. 472. 474. 475. and 
477. Students interested in this area should take CMSC 
1 10 asearly as possible, and CMSC 210. 420. 440 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. 462. 463. 464 A 
student interested in applied mathematics should obtain, 
in addition to a solid training in mathematics, a good 
knowledge of at least one area in which mathematics 
Is currently being applied. Concentration In this area 



122 / ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS. & DEPARTMENTS 



IS good preparation for employment In government and 
Industry or for graduate study In applied mathematics 

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

Honors In Mathematics. The Mathematics Honors 
Program is designed for students showing exceptional 
ability and interest in mathematics. Its aim is to give a 
student the best possible mathematical education 
Participants are selected by the Departmental Honors 
Committee during the first semester of their lunior year. 
To graduate with honors in mathematics they must take 
fourcreditsof MATH 398 and pass a final written and oral 
comprehensive examination A graduate course of three 
credits of independent study may be substituted for two 
credits of MATH 398 The rest of the program Is flexible. 
Independent work is encouraged and can be done in 
place of formal course work A student need not major 
in mathematics to participate in the honors program 

The Mathematics Department also offers a special 
Mathematics Departmental honors calculus sequence 
(MATH 150. 151.250. 251) for promising freshmen with a 
strong mathematical background (usually Including 
calculus). Enrollment in the sequence Is normally by 
invitation but any interested student may apply to the 
Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee for 
admission. 

Participants in the General Honors Program may 
enroll In special honors sections of the regular calculus 
sequence (MATH 140H, 141H, 240H, 241H), They may 
enroll in the honors calculus sequence If Invited by the 
Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee, 
However, the Mathematics Departmental Honors 
calculus sequence and the General Honors Program are 
distinct, and enrollment in one does not Imply 
acceptance In the other. 

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

Pi Mu Epsilon. The local chapter of Pi Mu Epsllon, 
national honorary mathematics fraternity, meets 
frequentlytodlscuss mathematical oreducatlonal topics 
of Interest to undergraduates. The programs are open to 
the public. 

Placement In Mathematics Courses. The department has 
a large ottering to accommodate a great variety of 
backgrounds, interests and abilities. The department 
permits a student to take any course for which he or she 
has the appropriate background regardless of formal 
course work. For example, a student with a high school 
calculus course may be permitted to begin In the middle 
of the calculus sequence even If he or she does 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- 
Examlnation. Students are urged to consult with 
advisors from the Mathematics Department to assist 
with proper placements. 

Statistics and Probability. Courses In statistics and 
probability are offered by the Department of 
Mathematics. These courses are open to non-ma|ors as 
well as majors, and carry credit In Mathematics. Students 
wishing to concentrate In statistics may do so by 
choosing an appropriate program under the Department 
of Mathematics.

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

Undergraduate students interested in pursuing a 
bachelors degree program preparatory to further study 
or work in meteorology are urged to consider the 
Physical Sciences Program, in which they can specialize 
in meteorology. It Is Important that students who 
anticipate this specialization should consult the 
Physical Sciences Program advisor representing the 
Meteorology Program as early as possible In their 
studies. 

Because of Its Interdisciplinary nature, the study of 
the atmosphere requires a firm background In the basic 
sciences and mathematics. To be suitably prepared for 
400-level courses in meteorology, the student should 
have the following background: Either the physics major 
series PHYS 191-296 or the series PHYS 161, 262, 263: 
the mathematics series MATH 140. 141, 240, 241 and 
either the series CHEM 103, 104 or CHEM 105, 106. In 
addition, natural science background courses In 
astronomy (such as ASTR 181, 182, or 350). geology 
(such as GEOL 445. 446) and METO 301 are highly 
recommended. 

Electives in meteorology are: 

METO 301 — Atmospheric Environment 3 

METO 398 — Topics in Atmospheric Science 3 

METO 410 — Descriptive and Synoptic 

Meteorology I 3 

METO 411 — Descriptive and Synoptic 

Meteorology II 3 

METO 412 — Physics and Thermodynamics of 

the Atmosphere 3 

METO 413 — Atmospheric Processes on 

Atomic and Molecular Scale 3 

METO 416 — Introduction to Atmospheric 

Dynamics 3 

METO 420 — Physical and Dynamical 

Oceanography 3 

METO 422— Oceanic Waves. Tides and 

Turbulence 3 

METO 434— Air Pollution 3 

METO 441— Weather Map Discussion and 

Practice Forecasting I 1 

METO 442— Weather Map Discussion and 

Practice Forecasting II 1 

METO 499— Special Problems in

Students who may be preparing for graduate 
education In meteorology are strongly advised to pursue 
further course work from among the areas of physics, 
mathematics, chemistry, computer science and 
statistics to supplement course work In meteorology.

The Institute for Molecular Physics serves as an ideal 
place to bring together physicists, chemists, engineers, 
atmospheric scientists, etc. to work on problems of 
mutual interest to the advantage of both. The graduate 
degree program in Chemical Physics is administered 
jointly by the Institute and the Chemistry and Physics 
Departments. 

The current research activities include theoretical and 
experimental studies in the broad fields of 
intermolecular forces (equation of state of liquids and 
gases, critical phenomena, transport phenomena in 
gases and plasmas, molecular collisions and scattering 
processes, biological systems), molecular structure 
(spectroscopy from the microwave to the vacuum 
ultraviolet, upper atmospheric and auroral phenomena, 
solar and planetary atmospheres, potential energy 
curves, molecular quantum mechanics), chemical and 
physical kinetics, laser studies, statistical mechanics 
and biophysics. 

This broad range of interests reflects the inter- 
disciplinary nature of both the Institute for f^^olecular 
Physics and the Chemical Physics program. All of the 
faculty members at the Institute are working in 
scientific areas which did not exist ten years ago. 
Accordingly, the students who are drawn to the 
Institute for training and research tend to be those who 
are interested in problems which lie somewhat outside 
the more conventional disciplines. The programs are 
quite flexible with regard to content and pace, and 
research groups often combine faculty and post- 
doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students.

Purpose. This program is suggested for many types of 
students: those whose i nterests cover a wide range of the 
physical sciences; those whose interests have not yet 
centered on any one science; students interested in a 
career in an interdisciplinary area within the physical 
sciences; students who seek a broader undergraduate 
program than is possible in one of the traditional 
physical sciences; preprofessional students (prelaw, 
premedical); 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; some of the Urban Studies courses 
should 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 
and computer science. 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 and some student representatives. 
Assignment of advisor depends on the interest of the 
student, e.g.. one interested principally in chemistry will 
be advised by the chemistry member of the committee. 
Students whose interests are too general to classify in 
this manner will normally be advised by the chairman of 
the committee. 

The Curriculum. The basic courses include MATH 140. 
141 and one other math course for which MATH 141 is a 
prerequisite (1 1 or 1 2 credits); CHEM 103 and 1 04. or 1 05 

124 / ACADEMIC DIVISIONS. COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, & DEPARTMENTS 



and 106 (8 credits); PHYS 162. 262. 263 (11 credits); or 
141. 142 (8 credits); or 191. 192.293, 294, 195, 196,295, 
296 (1 8 credits); or 221 . 222 (1 credits); or PHYS 121 , 122 
followed by PHYS 262 (12 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. PHYS 141. 142 is available to 
students who wish a less extensive background in 
physics than is represented by PHYS 1 61 -263 or 1 91 -294 
Students desiring a strong background in physics are 
urged to enroll in PHYS 191-294. This is the sequence 
also used by Physics majors and leads directly into the 
advanced physics courses. PHYS 221 . 222 is designed for 
Education majors, and therefore is suitable for students 
thinking in terms of a teaching career PHYS 121. 122 
plus 262 is offered as an option only for students who 
have already taken PHYS 121. 122 and then decide to 
major in Physical Sciences This sequence should not be 
selected by students already in or |ust starting the 
program. The rationale for requiring PHYS 262 to follow 
121. 122 is to ensure that students have some physics 
with calculus (121. 122 do not have a calculus 
corequisite). 

Beyond these basic courses the student must 
complete 24 credits of which 12 must be at the 300 or 
400 level, chosen from the following disciplines: 
Chemistry, physics, mathematics, astronomy, geology, 
meteorology, and computer science. Students 
presenting PHYS 294 as part of their basic curriculum 
may include these credits among the 24 credits. The 24 
credits must be so distributed that he or she has at least 
six credits in each of any three of the above listed 
disciplines. The program requires an average grade of 
at least C in courses counting toward the major, 
including both the basic plus the broader set of courses. 

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

Students who wish to depart from the stipulated 
curriculum may present their proposed program for 
approval by the Physical Science Committee. An honors 
program is available to qualified students in their senior 
year. 

Certain courses offered in these fields are not suitable 
for Physical Science majors and cannot count as part 
of the requirements of the program. These include any 
courses corresponding to a lower level than the basic 
courses specified above (e.g. MATH 115). or any of the 
following: ASTR 100. 105. CHEM 101. 102. 107. CMSC 
100. 103. GEOL 120.431.432.460. 489. MATH 105. 110. 
Ill, 115, 210. 211, 478, 481, 483. 484. PHYS 111. 112. 
114, 117, 400. 401. 

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

The Physics program includes a broad range of 
undergraduate courses designed to satisfy the needs of 
almost every student, from the advanced physics major 
to the person taking a single introductory physics 
course. In addition, there are various opportunities for 
personally directed studies between student and 
professor, and many undergraduate research" 
opportunities also are available. For further information 
consult Department Requirements for a B.S degree 
in Physics." available from the Department. 

Courses for Non-Majors. The department offers several 
courses which are intended for students other than 
physics majors PHYS 101. 102. 106. Ill and 112 
without a laboratory and PHYS 114, 117 and 120 with 
laboratory are designed to satisfy the General University 
distribution requirements. PHYS 121, 122. or 141. 142 
satisfy the requirements for professional schools such as 
medical and dental, and PHYS 161, 262, 263 satisfy the 
introductory physics requirement for most engineering 
programs. PHYS 299A provides background for PHYS 
121. PHYS 318 IS a one semester course stressing 
contemporary topics for those who have completed a 
year of one of the above sequences. In addition, PHYS 
420 is a one semester modern physics course for 
advanced students in science or engineering. Either 
the course sequence 161. 262. 263. or the full sequence 
191. 192. 293. 294 is suitable for mathematics students 
and those who major in other physical sciences. 

The Physics Major. The way most physics majors will 
begin their work is with a two-year basic sequence of 
physics courses. PHYS 191 A or B. 192, 293. and 294. 
accompanied by the laboratory courses PHYS 195, 196 
in the first year and 295. 296 in the second year. Transfer 
students who come with a different set of introductory 
courses either will be put into an appropriate course in 
this sequence or will take bridging courses, such as 
PHYS 404. 405. and then go on to advanced courses. 
The minimum requirement for a physics major is 38 
semester hours of work In physics, including six 
laboratory courses and PHYS 41 0. 41 1 . 421 and 422, plus 
MATH 140. 141. 240. 241 (or 150, 151, 250) and one 
additional 3 or 4 credit mathematics course. Students 
must have an overall average of at least 2.0 (C) in the 
required physics and required supporting mathematics 
courses. After taking the basic sequence, the student will 
have some flexibility in his program, and he or she will 
be able to take specialty courses, such as those in 
nuclear physics or solid-state physics, or courses In 
related fields which are of particular Interest to him or 
her. In addition, a student Interested In doing research 
may choose to do a bachelor's thesis under the direction 
of a member of the faculty 



Honors in Physics. The Honors Program offers to 
students of good ability and strong Interest in physics 
a greater flexibility in their academic programs, and a 
stimulating atmosphere through contacts with other 
good students and with individual faculty members 
There are opportunities for part-time research 
participation which may develop into full-time summer 
projects An honors seminar is offered for advanced 
students; credit may be given lor Independent work or 
study, and certain graduate courses are open for credit 
toward the bachelors degree 

Students are accepted by the departments Honors 
Committee on the basis of recommendations from their 
advisors and other faculty members, usually in the 
second semester of their junior year. A final written or 
oral comprehensive examination in the senior year is 
optional, but those who pass the examination will 
graduate "with honors In physics."

Science Communication 

Although not a formal degree program, the MPSE 
Division encourages students to construct academic 
programs with a view to prepare for careers in science 
communication. The University of Maryland offers 
several interdisciplinary approaches to the training of 
science communicators, ranging from specialization in 
one science or engineering with background In 
communication to specializing in journalistic 
communication with background coursework in the 
sciences. Each of the several program options can be 
tailored to the needs of individual students. 

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

The following are several approaches: Writing about 
\he physical sciences: A recommended approach would 
be to take the Physical Sciences Program with a minor In 
Journalism. The Physical Sciences Program consists 
of a basic set of courses in physics, chemistry, and 
mathematics, followed by a variety of courses chosen 
from these and related disciplines: astronomy, geology, 
meteorology, and computer science. 

Writing about the life sciences: A recommended 
approach would be to take the Biological Sciences 
Program with a minor in Journalism. The Biological 
Sciences Program includes work in botany, entomol.ogy, 
microbiology, and zoology, and Introduces the student 
to the general principles and methods of each of these 
biological sciences. 

Writing about eng/neenng.- A recommended approach 
would be to take a departmental major in any of the 
sciences, agriculture, or engineering and a minor in 
Journalism. 

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



Air Force Aerospace Studies Program

same manner as for other courses. 

Two-year Program - This program is normally offered 
to juniors and seniors but may be taken by graduate 
students. The academic requirements for this program 
are identical to the final two years of the four-year 
program. Evaluation of candidates is normally begun 
during the first semester of the sophomore year. During 
the summer preceding entry into the program all 
candidates must complete a six-week field training at a 
designated Air Force base. 

The Curriculum 

General Military Course - freshman year, ARSC 100 
and ARSC 101 ; sophomore year. ARSC 200 and ARSC 
201 . The courses for the freshman and sophomore years 
are "U.S. Air Force Today," "Of Those Who Fly," and 
"U.S. Air Power: Ascension to Prominence." In the first 
two years, cadets attend academic classes once each 
week. In addition, they receive one hour of Leadership 
and Management Laboratory each week. 

Professional Officer Course - junior year, ARSC 300 
and ARSC 301 ; senior year, ARSC 302 and ARSC 303. 
The courses for the junior and senior years are "National 
Security Forces in Contemporary American Society" 
and "Air Force Leadership and Management" 
respectively. They require three class hours, plus one 
hour of Leadership and Management Laboratory per 
week. 

The AFROTC College Scholarship Program provides 
scholarships for selected cadets each year in the 



AFROTC program. Those selected receive money for 
tuition, laboratory expenses, incidental fees, and books 
for up to eight semesters. In addition, they receive 
non-taxable monthly allowance of $100 

Students in the Two-Year and Four-Year program 
enrolled in the Professional Officer Course receive 
non-taxable monthly pay of $100 for the two-year period 
regardless of their scholarship status. Students also 
receive monetary compensation (plus quarters and 
subsistence) while attending either the four-week or the 
six-week Field Training Session. 

To be accepted into the Professional Officer Course 
the student must: complete the General Military Course 
and a four-week Field Training Session, or the six-week 
Field Training Session: pass the Air Force Officer 
Qualification Test: be physically qualified: enlist in the 
Air Force Reserve: be in good academic standing, and

credits are transferable. 

Students who qualify to become Air Force pilots 
receive a free 25-hour flight instruction program. Cadets 
are instructed by both military and civilian instructors 
on all phases of flight, ground operations and FAA 
control/regulations. This program gives the student 
pilot a good start toward obtaining a private license. 



Undergraduate 
Studies 



Bachelor of General Studies Degree Program 

The Bachelor of General Studies degree program 
differs from other degree programs in that it is a degree 
program without a concentration in a specific discipline 
or department. It does not, however, depart from the 
high quality standards required of other degree 
programs. 

The BGS program permits the student to obtain an 
education in as broad a set of disciplines or thought 
patterns as are offered at the College Park Campus 
without requiring adherence to a previously defined 
curriculum with a departmental or divisional orientation 

In the BGS program, the burden for motivation and 
direction is on the student. Good advice will guide, but 
institutional commands will not compel students in this 
program. 

Since the very concept of the BGS is predicated on a 
broad ranging educational objective and not on the 
more specific requirements of graduate school and 
professional employment, students who elect this 
program should specifically be aware that it is not 
designed to satisfy graduate school admission 
requirements or professional employment requirements. 

Additional information may be obtained from the 
Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies, Room 
1115 Undergraduate Library. 

Requirements. To receive a Bachelor of General 
Studies degree, a student must satisfy the following 
requirements: 

1. A minimum of 120 credits must be accumulated with 
a grade point average of at least 2.0 in all courses. 

2. No more than 30 credits in any one department may 
be applied toward the required 120 credits. 

3. The courses taken must be distributed over at least 
three divisions with a maximum of 60 credits in any 
one division counted toward the required 120 
credits. 

4. At least 45 credits must be taken at the upper level 
(courses numbered 300 orhigher):a2.0 average must 
be obtained in all upper level courses. 

126 / ACADEMIC DIVISIONS, COLLEGES, SCHOOLS, 8. DEPARTMENTS 



5. The student must be registered as only a Bachelor of 
General Studies major for at least the last 30 credits 
immediately preceding the awarding of the degree. 

6. The student pursuing the BGS program shall be 
advised by a faculty member either appointed by or 
acceptable to the Dean for Undergraduate Studies. 



Individual Studies Program 

The Individual Studies Program offers an 
individualized major for UMCP students who 
1 have the ability to design, with faculty assistance, a 

sequence of formal and/or informal learning 

experiences, satisfactory completion of which is 

deemed adequate for the awarding of a bachelor's 

degree and who 
2. have a clearly defined academic goal which cannot 

reasonably be satisfied in an existing curriculum at 

College Park. 

Students may be admitted to the Individual Studies 
program after completion of one semester of residence 
at College Park and must be officially approved prior to 
the final thirty semester hours of the proposed 
curriculum. They must complete 120 credit hours with an 
average of C or better and satisfy the General University 
Requirements. 

Students receive a B.A. or B.S. In Individual Studies. 
The title of the individual program is indicated on the 
transcript 

Students who wish to apply for the program should see 
the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies (Room 
1115 Undergraduate Library. Ext 2530. 2531). It the 
students enrollment in the program seems appropriate, 
the student will be given guidance m preparing a 
preliminary prospectus and in locating a suitable faculty 
tutor to assist in the preparation of the final prospectus 
The prospectus is an outline of the students educational 
obiectives and when officially approved is filed with the 
Administrative Dean for Undergraduate Studies and 
becomes the curriculum under which the student will 
earn the degree. 



General Honors Program 

Director: Portz. 

The General Honors Program consists of about 750 
students Members of tfie Program are permitted to 
enroll in small, honors sections of basic courses in 
many departments and are given the opportunity of 
participating in special, upper-level General Honors 
seminars, independent study, and field experience. 
Successful General Honors students are graduated with 
a citation in General Honors, and notation of this 
accomplishment is made upon their diplomas and 
transcripts General Honors also involves an elaborate 
extra-curricular program. Student participation in 
decision-making in all aspects of General Honors is 
encouraged. 

Students from any Division or College on the College 
Park Campus are eligible to apply for admission to the 
program. Admission to the General Honors Program is 
ordinarily made at the same time as admission to the 
University, although a special and separate application 
form IS required for General Honors. 

Admission requirements are not fixed, but relative 
to the background, accomplishments, and motivation 
of the applicant. Very generally it may be said that 
students are selected on the basis of grades, rank in 
class, national test scores, and recommendations from 
high school teachers and counselors. In addition. 



how/ever, subjective factors are taken into very serious 
consideration. 

Students customarily apply during their senior year in 
high school, but in-University students are also admitted 
during their careers at the University, and students 
transferring from other institutions are accepted into 
General Honors upon presentation of a distinguished 
record, especially if they come to Maryland from another 
honors program. 

The College Park Campus also operates 25 
Departmental Honors Programs designed primarily for 
the majoring student. Most of these programs begin in 
the junior year, although there are a few exceptions 
(Botany, English, History, Mathematics, and 
Psychology), and are administered by committees at the 
departmental level. For information, see the descriptions 
under the various departmental entries in this catalog, or 
contact the Honors Office, as below. 

The General Honors Program is a member of the 
National Collegiate Honors Council and of the Northeast 
Regional Honors Council. 

The General Honors Program is administered by the 
Director and by the General Honors Committee which 
also acts as an advisory and regulatory body. For 
application forms, brochure, and information, write to 
Dr. John Portz, Director, Honors Office, University of 
Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Course Code Prelix— HONR 



There are a number of programs developed to prepare 
the pre-professional student. These curricula, some 
rather general and others quite specific, are designed to 
give the student the best background to succeed in his 
advanced training, to fulfill the undergraduate 
requirements of professional schools, and to fit in with 
the requirements established by the organizations 
associated with the respective professions. 

Pre-professional programs require that the student 
maintain a grade point average considerably higher 
than the minimum for graduation. The student may 
fulfill requirements by majoring in almost any discipline 
in some programs, provided the specific requirements of 
the pre-professional program are met. 

The successful completion of the pre-professional 
program does not guarantee admission to a professional 
school. Each school has its own admissions 
requirements and criteria, generally based upon the 
grade point average in the undergraduate courses, the 
scores in aptitude tests (Medical College Admission 
Test, Law Admission Test, Dental Aptitude Test, etc.). 
a personal interview, and letters sent by the Evaluation 
Committee of the college. For specific admissions 
requirements, the student is urged to study the catalog 
of the professional school of his choice. 

Although completion of the bachelor's degree is a 
normal prerequisite for admission for dental, law, and 
medical schools, three professional schools of the 
University of Maryland in Baltimore — Dentistry, Law, 
and Medicine — have arrangements whereby a student 
who meets requirements detailed below may be 
accepted for professional school after three years (90 
academic hours). For the students to be eligible for the 
"combined degree,' the final 30 hours prior to entry 
into the Schools of Dentistry, Law, and Medicine must be 
taken in residence. After the successful completion of 
thirty hours of work in professional school, the student 
may be eligible for a bachelor's degree. 

Pre-Dental Hygiene 

The primary responsibility of the dental hygiene 
profession is to promote optimal oral health through the 
provision of preventive and educational services 
complementary to those within the purview of the dental 
profession. 

In clinical office practice the dental hygienist's 
services are provided under the supervision of a dentist 



Pre-Ptx)fessional 
Programs 



and are defined and governed by State dental practice 
acts. Although minor differences exist between state 
laws, in general, those services which constitute 
permissible dental hygiene practice include: obtaining 
the patient s medical and dental history; conducting a 
preliminary clinical oral examination of the teeth and 
surrounding tissues for diagnosis by the dentist; 
performing diagnostic procedures (x-rays, impressions 
for study casts, saliva tests, oral cytologic smears, etc.) 
for use by the dentist; providing a complete oral 
prophylaxis (removal of all hard and soft deposits and 
stains and polishing of natural and restored surfaces of 
the teeth); applying topical medicaments and preventive 
agents; and assisting with office duties as assigned by 
the dentist. The dental hygienist also assumes a major 
role in patient education and counseling and supervision 
of oral hygiene practices. 

Although the majority of dental hyglenists are 
employed in dental offices, there are numerous 
opportunities and a growing need for those with 
baccalaureate and graduate degrees in dental hygiene 
education, community or public health, private and 
public institutions, commissioned service in the Armed 
Forces, research, and other special areas of practice. 
The dental hygienist's activities in these areas are 
dependent in varying degrees upon dental knowledge 
and skills in providing clinical services. However, 
additional study beyond the basic dental hygiene 
curriculum is essential preparation for advanced 
professional career opportunities. 

Program Description. Dental hygiene offers only a 
four-year baccalaureate degree program. The 
curriculum includes two years of pre-professional 
courses, a third year of intensive dental and dental 
hygiene study with clinical application and a fourth year 
of advanced clinical practice and upper divisionelectives 
in a recommended area of study, which will constitute a 
minor related to a specialized area of dental hygiene 
practice. The first two years of the pre-professional 
curriculum include humanities and social science 
requirements of the University of Maryland, dental 
hygiene education accreditation requirements and 
elective lower division courses. Completion of the 
pre-professional curriculum at the University of 
Maryland or another college or university will be 
required for eligibility to apply for enrollment in dental 
hygiene as a junior.

Admissions and Applications Procedures. High School 
Students. High school students who wish to enroll in the 
Pre-Dental Hygiene curriculum should request 
applications directly from the Admissions Office of the 
University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Young women or men who wish to prepare for a 
baccalaureate degree program in dental hygiene should 
pursue an academic program in high school including 
the following recommended subjects: biology, 
chemistry, math, and physics. 

Pre-Dental Hygiene Students. Pre-Dental Hygiene 
students should request applications during the fall 
semester of their sophomore year from: University of 
Maryland at Baltimore, Office of Admissions. 660 W. 
Redwood Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201. 
Applications for the Dental Hygiene Program must be 
received no later than February 1, 1977, for the fall 
semester 1977. 

Only those students who have successfully completed 
the two-year professional curriculum at the University of 
Maryland or another college or university will be eligible 
for admission to the department. Secaose enrollment 
must be extremely limited, registration in the 
pre-professional curriculum does not assure the student 
of acceptance in the dental hygiene program. All 
applicants will be required to submit Dental Hygiene 
Aptitude Test scores (DHAT information is available from 
the Department of Dental Hygiene), to appear for a 
personal interview at the discretion of the Dental 
Hygiene Committee on Admissions and have a physical 
examination. A minimum of C average in the pre- 
professional curriculum will be required, and preference 
will be given to those students who have maintained 
high scholastic records. 

Registered Dental Hygienists. Registered dental 
hygienists who have completed a two-year accredited 
dental hygiene program at another college or university 
should apply to enroll in the pre-professional curriculum 
at one of the University of Maryland undergraduate 
campuses. Upon completion of general education, basic 
and social science, advanced dental hygiene courses 
and elective requirements at the University of Maryland, 
dental hygiene credits will be evaluated for transferability 
by the Department of Dental Hygiene and the Baltimore 
Campus Director of Admissions. Registered dental 
hygienists should write to the address below for 
additional information. 

Further Information. Information about the 
professional curriculum or the transfer program for 
registered dental hygienists may be obtained from the

Pre-Dentistry 

The pre-dental program is based upon the 
requirements and recommendations of the various 
dental schools, and the requirements for a baccalaureate 
degree from the College Park Campus, following either 
the four-year program or the combined Arts-Dentistry 
Program. The curriculum is designed to prepare the 
student for the Dental Aptitude Test, which is normally 
taken in the spring of the lunior year. 

The following program will satisfy the minimum 
requirements of most dental schools for either the 
three-year program (90 academic hours) or the four-year 
program (120 academic hours). 

The suggested program is as follows:

Four-Year Program. No specific major is required for 
favorable consideration by a dental school admissions 
committee. By intelligent planning starting in his 
freshman or sophomore year, the student can meet 
the requirements for the B.S. or B.A degree in most 
major programs and can include in his course work any 
courses specifically prescribed by dental schools of his 
choice. The student is urged to work closely with his 
pre-dental major advisers in this planning. 

Three-Year Arts-Dentistry Program. Students whose 
performance during the first two years is exceptional 
may seek admission to the University of Maryland Dental 
School at the end of their third year (90 academic hours). 
No undergraduate major is required for this program: 
the work of the first year in the School of Dentistry is 
considered as the major. By the end of his third year the 
student will need to have completed all of the 
requirements listed above with the exception of the 
major and supporting course requirements. Students in 
this program will select supporting courses from any one 
of the following combinations: 

Zoology — six hours on the 300-400 level. 

Microbiology — eight hours on the 300-400 level 

CHEM 321— plus three hours on the 300-400 level in 
any natural science. 

CHEM 461, 462, 463, and 464 

Nine hours on the 300-400 level in any one department 
of the arts, humanities or social sciences. 

Students accepted in the combined Art-Dentistry 
program may receive the B S degree (Arts-Dentistry) 
after satisfactory completion of the first year at the 
University of Maryland Dental School upon 
recommendation by the Dean of the Dental School and 
approval by the College Park Campus, the degree to be 
awarded in August following the first year of Dental 
School. 



Schedule: The pre-dental student usually includes in 
the first year schedule chemistry, mathematics and 
zoology, and English if needed. The second year should 
include the second year of chemistry and recommends 
comparative vertebrate morphology (ZOOL 290) and 
genetics (ZOOL 246) plus additional mathematics if 
needed. The third year should include physics (121, 122 
or 141, 142) Additional recommended courses are 
embryology (ZOOL 430), analytical chemistry, and a 
course in statistics At all times general university, 
divisional and department major requirements should be 
kept in mind. It is advisable for pre-dental students to 
design an individual program that shov*(s strength in 
science-math and breadth in the social sciences and 
humanities, 

Pre-Forestry 

Pre-Forestry students are advised in the Department of 
Horticulture section. See page 47 for Information about 
this program. 

Pre- Law 

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

Four-Year Program. The student who plans to 
complete the requirements for the B.A. or B.S. degree 
before entering law school should select a major field 
of concentration. The pre-law student often follows a 
bachelor of arts program with a major in American 
studies, English, history, economics, political science 
(government and politics), psychology, sociology, or 
speech, a few pre-law students follow a bachelor of 
science program, 

Three-Year Arts- Law Program. The student who plans 
to enter law school at the end of his third year should 
complete the General University Requirements, By the 
end of his junior year he will complete the requirements 
for a minor" (18 semester hours in one department, 
6 hours being at the 300-400 level). His program during 
the first three years should include all of the basic 
courses required for a degree (including the 18-hour 
"minor" course program) and all divisional and 
University requirements. The academic courses must 
total 90 hours, and must be passed with a minimum 
average of 2,0, To be acceptable to law schools, however, 
students in virtually all cases must have a considerably 
higher average. 

Students with exceptional records who are accepted 
to the School of Law of the University of Maryland under 
the Arts-Law program may receive a B,A, degree 
(Arts-Law) after satisfactory completion of the first year 
of law school, upon recommendation by the Dean of the 
University of Maryland Law School and approval by the 
College Park Campus, The degree is awarded in August 
following the first year of law school (or after 30 credit 
hours are completed). 



Pre-Medical Technology 

The University of Maryland offers a baccalaureate 
degree program in Medical Technology to be completed 
in four academic years. Students who have been 
accepted into the Medical Technology Program study 
during the senior year at the School of Medicine and the 
University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore. The 
program fulfills requirements set forth by the National 
Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences 



(NAACLS) and the Council on Medical Education of the 
American Medical Association (AMA). Upon successful 
completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take 
the Medical Technology national certification 
examination given by the Board of Registry of the 
American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) 
Students will not receive a degree m Medical Technology 
from the University of Maryland unless they attend the 
senior year at the Baltimore Campus, 

Pre-professional Curriculum. Students must complete at 
least 90 semester hours of academic preparation, 
exclusive of Health and Physical Education, before 
beginning the professional segment of the Medical 
Technology Program, A curriculum guide is included 
which will assist the student in planning the first three 
years of study which fulfills University of Maryland and 
National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory 
Science requirements. 

Professional Curriculum. Students are accepted into the 
Medical Technology Program on a competitive basis. 
Successful completion of 90 semester hours does not 
guarantee admission to the professional segment of the 
program. 

The professional segment, of 12 months duration, is 
administered by the University of Maryland School of 
Medicine at the Baltimore Campus. Two classes are 
admitted each year (January and July). Full-time 
attendance is required during the senior year The first 
six months of this year consist of lectures, didactic 
laboratories and simulated clinical laboratory 
instruction. The second half of the year involves rotation 
in each discipline of the clinical laboratories at the 
University of Maryland Hospital. 

Application and Admission. Applicants must meet all 
admission requirements of the University of Maryland. 
At least three years of college preparatory mathematics 
and science, including chemistry and physics, are 
strongly recommended. 

Applications to the professional school will not be 
considered until the first semester of the junior year. 
At that time, the applicant submits an undergraduate 
Professional Application for Admission. All applications 
for admissions will be sent by the Director of Admissions, 
Howard Hall, Room 132, 660 W, Redwood Street, 
Baltimore, Maryland 21201. Advancement to the 
professional segment is determined by criteria set by the 
"Committee on Admissions."

Four-Year Program. No specific major is required for 
favorable consideration by a medical school admissions 
committee. By intelligent planning starting in the 
freshman or sophomore year, the student can meet the 
above requirements as well as the requirements of most 
majors for the B.A or 8 S. degree The student is urged 
to work closely with his pre-medical and major advisors 
in this planning. A student who enters the pre-medical 
program late in his college career may find an additional 
year of study necessary (either as a special student or as 
a regular undergraduate). 

Three-Year Arts-Medicine Program. A student whose 
performance during the first two years is exceptional 
may seek admission to the University of Maryland 
Medical School at the end of the third year (90 academic 
hours). During his third year he will need to complete all 
the requirements listed above, with the exception of the 
major and regular supporting course program. Four 
additional hours on the 300-400 level in appropriate 
science courses will satisfy the supporting course 
requirements of the Arts-Medicine Program. 

Students accepted in the combined Arts-Medicine 
program may receive the B.S degree (Arts-Medicine) 
after satisfactory completion of the first year at the 
University of Maryland School of Medicine (30 academic 
hours), upon recommendation by the Dean of the 
School of Medicine and approval by the College Park

Campus. The degree is awarded in August following the 
first year of medical school. 

Schedule. The pre-medical student usually includes in 
his first year schedule chemistry, mathematics and 
zoology, and English if needed. The second year should 
include the second year of chemistry, and we 
recommend comparative vertebrate (ZOOL 290). 
genetics (ZOOL 246). completion of mathematics 
through calculus and courses in the social sciences or 
humanities. The third year should include physics (121. 
122 or 141 . 142). Vertebrate embryology (ZOOL 430) and 
courses in the social sciences or humanities such as 
history, political science, psychology, and fine arts are 
recommended. Courses necessary to complete the 
divisional, major department and general university 
requirements should be considered at all times. It Is 
advisable for pre-medical students to design an 
individual program that shows strength in science-math 
and breadth in the social sciences and humanities. 



Pre-Nursing 

The School of Nursing The program in professional 
nursing leading to the baccalaureate degree in nursing, 
is available to qualified applicants without discrimination 
in regard to age. creed, ethnic origin, marital status, race, 
or sex. The School of Nursing is approved by the 
Maryland State Board of Examiners of Nurses and 
accredited by the National League for Nursing. 

Admission and Progression. It Is recommended that 
students enroll in the college preparatory program in 
high school. In addition to other academic subjects 
required for graduation, the following subjects are 
strongly recommended: mathematics (college 
preparatory) (3 credits): biology (1 unit); and chemistry 
(1 unit). Study in the subjects listed above provides a 
foundation for college pre-professional course 
requirements. 

Admission to the upper division program in the 
School of Nursing on the Baltimore Campus is limited 
to the number of students that can be accommodated, 
and selection must be made from applicants who are 
judged to have the most potential for completing the 
professional program Academic performance in 
pre-professional courses is an important factor. It is 
important that students who enroll in the freshman and 
sophomore years in preparing for nursing recognize that 
although every effort is made to continue to expand the 
enrollment of the professional program on the 
Baltimore Campus, there is no way in which the student 
can be guaranteed admission to the professional 
program.

Pre-Physical Therapy 

The Department of Physical Therapy offers a four-year 
program divided into a pre-professional division and a 
professional division. The pre-professional requirements 
may be completed on any of the University of Maryland 
campuses, or any regionally accredited university or 
college. The professional division courses are offered 
only on the Baltimore City Campus. The physical therapy 
curriculum is approved by the Council of Medical 
Education of the American Medical Association in 
collaboration with the American Physical Therapy 
Association. 

The professional services of the physical therapist are 
offered to people who are disabled by illness or accident 
or were born with a handicap. Clinical practitioners are 
responsible for the evaluation of each patient's ability, 
disability and potential for recovery. The most common 
areas of disorder include neuromuscular, musculo- 
skeletal, sensory motor, and related cardio-vascular 
and respiratory functions. 

On the basis of test findings a treatment program is 
planned and implemented within the referral of the 
licensed physician or dentist with whom the contact is 
maintained regarding patient care and progress. 
Treatment techniques include the therapeutic use of 
heat, cold, water, electricity, light, ultra-sound, massage, 
exercise and functional training. Instruction is given to 
the patient, the family and others who might help during 
the treatment and convalescent period. 

Most physical therapists are employed in hospital 
clinics, rehabilitation centers, private practice, schools 
for handicapped children and nursing homes. 

Advanced degree programs are available in a few 
universities and colleges across the country, A masters 
degree enables physical therapists to hold positions in 
education, research, administration and as consultants. 
Ph.D. degrees may be earned in allied academic areas. 



Admission Information. High school students who are 
interested in physical therapy should enroll in the college 
preparatory program. The subjects specifically 
recommended for adequate background are biology, 
chemistry, physics and three units of mathematics. 
Completion of a year of high school public speaking will 
provide exemption from the college speech requirement.
