2 General Information 



The University 

Goals For College Park 

Our objectives 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 in 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 a 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 1859 
as the 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 (UMBC), 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 in 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. 

Libraries at College Park 

The Theodore R. McKeldin Library is the general library of the University, 
containing reference works, periodicals, circulating books, and other materials in 
all fields of research and instruction. Branch libraries include the Undergraduate 
Library, the Engineenng and Physical Sciences Library, the Architecture Library, 
and the Chemistry Library. 

The libraries on the College Park Campus include approximately 1,563,000 
volumes, nearly 984,500 microfilm units, and approximately 11,000 subscriptions 
to periodicals and newspapers, as well as many government documents, 
phonorecords, films, slides, prints, and music scores. 

The Undergraduate Library, opened in 1973, seats 4,000 students and has a 
book capacity of 200,000 volumes. It features a recreational reading collection of 
5,000 paperbacks, a quadrophonic concert room, color video tape players and 
playback units, enclosed rooms equipped with instructor's consoles for the use of 
nonprint media matenals, and wireless stereo headsets for tapes and lectures, 
plays, speeches, and music. The McKeldin Library mainly supports the graduate 
and research programs of the University, but is also open to undergraduates. 



Special collections in the library system include those of Richard Van Mises in 
mathematics and applied mechanics; Max Born in the physical sciences; Thomas 
I. Cook in political science; Romeo Mansueti in the biological sciences; Katharine 
Anne Porter; Maryland; U.S. government publications (for which the University is 
a regional depository); documents of the United Nations, the League of Nations, 
and other international organizations; agricultural experiment station and exten- 
sion service publications; maps from the U.S. Army Map Service; the files of the 
Industrial Union of Marine and Shipbuilding Workers of America; the Wallenstein 
collection of musical scores; the Andre Kostelanetz Music Library; and research 
collections of the American Bandmasters Association, the National Association 
of Wind and Percussion Instructors and the Music Educators National Con- 
ference. In addition, the collections include microfilm productions of government 
documents, rare books, early |ournals, and newspapers. 

Other Area Resources 

The College Park Campus area is in a region rich in research collections. In 
the Washington area are the Library of Congress, the National Archives, the 
Folger Library, the National Library of Medicine, the National Agricultural Library, 
and various academic and special libraries. In the Baltimore area, in addition to 
the University's own libraries at UMBC and on the professional campus, are the 
Enoch Pratt Free Library and the Maryland Historical Association Library. The 
Maryland Hall of Records is located in Annapolis. 

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 device (Q machine); a psycho-pharmacology laboratory; three 
retro-reflector arrays on the moon; rotating tanks for laboratory studies of 
meteorological phenomena; Van de Graff accelerators; a laboratory for basic 
behavioral research; an assortment of computers; and the Astronomy Observato- 

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 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 
year. The first session begins May 22 and ends June 29. The second session 
runs from July 3 to August 10. New freshmen applicants who have met the 
regular University admission requirements for fall enrollment may begin their 
studies during the summer rather than wait for the next fall term. By taking 
advantage of this opportunity and continuing to attend summer sessions, the time 
required for completion of a baccalaureate degree can be shortened by a year or 
more, depending upon the requirements of the chosen curriculum and the rate of 
progress. 

Many new students have found that attendance during the summer sessions 
facilitates the transition from secondary school to college. Courses ottered 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 ttiese media 
appear on ttie College Park Campus. Facilities for most sports and an intramural 
program in several team and individual sports are available to tfie students. 

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

Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations may request the Office of 
Human Relations Programs to conduct periodic review of the operation of 
any unit of the Campus. Units shall provide the information necessary for 
carrying out such reviews. This information shall be submitted through the 
Chancellor's Office. Any such review under the authority granted in this 
statement of policy shall be undertaken only after specific authorization of 
the Chancellor. In the event that the Chancellor fails to authorize an 
investigation within a reasonable time of the request by the Senate Adjunct 
Committee on Human Relations, the Chairman of the Committee shall report 
that fact, together with reasons as he/she may have received from the 
Chancellor concerning the matter, to the Senate. 

B. The Office of Human Relations Programs on its own motion shall identify 
policies, practices or patterns of behavior which may reflect discrimination 
prohibited by this Code or which may conflict with any other Campus policy 
concerning human relations or with the Campus Affirmative Action Plan, and 
shall call these to the attention of the appropriate officials of the unit 
involved and recommend appropriate action. Those subject to allegations of 
discrimination shall be afforded all the protections of due process. The 
Office shall endeavor by negotiation to eliminate the alleged discrimination. 
Where such efforts fail, the Office may on its own motion report the matter 
to the Chancellor and to the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human 
Relations. Documentation of the recommendations by the Office in all such 
cases shall be maintained on file by the Office. 

C. To the maximum extent consistent with the purposes of this Code, the 
confidentiality of personal papers and other records and the principle of 
privileged communication shall be respected by all persons involved in the 
enforcement procedures of this Code. Nothing in this Code shall be 
construed so as to conflict with the requirements of Article 76A of the 
Maryland Annotated Code. Persons giving information in connection with 
the procedures described in this Code shall be advised by the person 



receiving such information of the limits of confidentiality which may properly 
be observed in Code procedures and that all documents may be subject to 
subpoena in subsequent administrative or judicial proceedings. 

D. Any member of the Campus community who believes that he or she has 
been or is being discriminated against in ways prohibited by this Code may 
consult informally and confidentially with the unit EEEO Officer and/or the 
equity officer and/or the Office of Human Relations Programs prior to filing a 
formal complaint. 

E. The Office of Human Relations Programs shall receive formal complaints 
from any member or group within the Campus community claiming to be 
aggrieved by alleged discrimination prohibited by this Code and/or any other 
Campus document or policy relating to human relations practices. Such 
complaints should give in writing the names of complainant(s) and respond- 
ent(s) and the time, the place, and a specific description of the alleged 
discrimination. Complaints shall be submitted to the Office of Human 
Relations Programs, or else to the unit EEEO Officer or the equity officer. 
Complaints must be submitted within one hundred and twenty (120) days of 
the alleged discrimination act(s), or within one hundred and twenty (120) 
days of the first date by which the complainant reasonably has knowledge 
thereof. Complaints not submitted directly to the Office of Human Relations 
Programs shall be fonwarded to the Office of Human Relations Programs 
within five (5) working days of their receipt. Copies of the complaint shall be 
fonwarded by the Office of Human Relations Programs to the respondent 
and to the appropriate unit Chairman or Director, Dean, Provost or Vice 
Chancellor. 

F. Complainants under this Code shall be required, as a condition precedent, 
to waive any alternative Campus administrative procedure that may then be 
available. A complaint which has been heard under some alternative 
Campus procedure cannot subsequently be heard under the procedure of 
this Code. In the case of a complaint heard under the Classified Employees 
Grievance Procedure, this restriction shall apply only when the complaint 
has entered Step Three of that procedure. 

G. The Office of Human Relations Programs and/or the equity officer shall 
ensure that each complainant is informed of his/her right to file the 
complaint with the appropriate State and Federal agencies. Forms for 
complaints to State and Federal agencies will be provided or the complain- 
ant will be informed where they are available. 

H. All complaints of discrimination which are not connected with the official 
functions of the Campus or not falling within the scope of discrimination 
prohibited by this Code shall be referred to the appropriate Campus, 
Municipal, County, State, or Federal agencies by the Office of Human 
Relations Programs. 

I. After a complaint has been filed, the Office of Human Relations Programs 
shall promptly undertake an informal investigation in order to make a 
preliminary determination as to whether or not the subject matter of the 
complaint falls within the Code, and whether or not there is probable cause 
for the complaint. This finding shall be reported to the complainant, the 
respondent, the Chancellor and the Chairman of the Senate Adjunct 
Committee on Human Relations. The burden of proof in this investigation 
and throughout these enforcement procedures rests with the complainant. 

J. If the finding is that there is not probable cause to believe that discrimination 
has been or is being committed within the scope of this Code, the Office of 
Human Relations Programs may dismiss the complaint. Such dismissal shall 
be reported to the complainant, the respondent, the Chancellor and the 
Chairman of the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations. The 
complainant in such a case may appeal the dismissal of the case to the 
Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations, which may direct that a 
Human Relations Grievance Committee conduct a grievance hearing 
according to the procedures set forth herein, if in the judgment of the Senate 
Adjunct Committee on Human Relations there is probable cause to believe 
that discrimination has been or is being committed within the scope of this 
Code. The Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations shall have 
access to the complaint file for this purpose. A record of its deliberations 
shall be placed in the file according to the procedures established by the 
Office of Human Relations Programs. If the Committee finds no probable 
cause, it may dismiss the complaint, and report such dismissal to the 
complainant, the respondent, and the Chancellor. 

K. If the finding is that there is probable cause to believe that discrimination 
has been or is being committed within the scope of this Code, the Office of 
Human Relations Programs shall endeavor to eliminate the alleged discrimi- 
nation by conference conciliation and persuasion. If by this process, an 
agreement is reached for elimination of the alleged discrimination, the 
agreement shall be reduced to writing and signed by the respondent, the 
complainant and the Director of the Office of Human Relations Programs. 
The agreement shall be available to the Chancellor, the equity officer, and to 
the Chairman of the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations, upon 
request. 

L. If a finding of probable cause is made but no mutually satisfactory solution 
can be reached under the procedures outlined in Section K immediately 
preceding, the Office of Human Relations Programs shall initiate the 
following procedure: the Office shall notify the Senate Adjunct Committee 



The University 



on Human Relations of the failure to reach a mutually satisfactory solution, 
whereupon, providing the complainant requests in writing a Human Rela- 
tions Grievance Hearings, a Human Relations Grievance Committee shall 
t>e selected according to the procedures described in Article IV following. 
Grievance hearing shall be closed unless both parties to the dispute agree 
that the hearing, or any part thereof, shall be open to the public. All parties 
to the dispute shall be sent within five (5) working days of the written request 
of such a hearing, written notification of the time and place of the beginning 
of the hearing and a specific statement of the charges. Hearings shall be 
held as promptly as is consistent with allowing adequate time for the parties 
to prepare their cases. Continuances may be granted within the discretion of 
the Office of Human Relations Programs. All parties shall have ample 
opportunity to present their facts and arguments in full during the hearing. All 
findings, recommendations and conclusions by the Grievance Committee 
shall be based solely on the evidence presented during the hearing, and 
shall be based on a preponderance of the evidence having probative effect. 
The burden of proof rests with the complainant. The Grievance Commit- 
tee may be assisted by an adviser. All the parties to the dispute and the 
Grievance Committee may invite persons to testify during the tiearing. Each 
side shall have the right to cross-examine witnesses. Each party has the right 
to be represented by counsel or other representative, but the University has 
no obligation to provide such counsel for any party to the dispute. If a party 
Intends to be represented by legal counsel during the hearing, he/she shall 
inform the Office of Human Relations Programs of this fact no later than 72 
tiours prior to the hearing, and that Office shall provide that information to the 
other party or parties. A verbatim record shall be kept of all sessions in which 
testimony and evidence is presented regarding the case, and this record shall 
be made available to all parties to the dispute at the conclusion of the 
proceedings. Upon request the Chairman of the Grievance Committee may. 
In his discretion, recess the hearing to permit review of the record by one or 
more parties in the conduct of their case. 

The Chairman of a Human Relations Grievance Committee with the 
advice of the adviser, if there is one, shall rule on all matters of procedure and 
admissibility of evidence. Any member of the Committee not concurring In the 
ruling of the chair may request a closed session of the Committee for debate 
on the point. A majority vote of the Committee will determine the final 
decision. 

Formal njjes of evidence shall not be applicable to any hearing before a 

Human Relations Grievance Committee, and any evidence or testimony 

which the Committee believes to be relevant to a fair determination of the 

complaint may be admitted. The Committee reserves the right to exclude 

incompetent, irrelevant, immaterial and repetitious evidence. 

M. In cases of allegations regarding prohibited discrimination concerning 

academic employment matters, a Human Relations Grievance Committee 

shall not substitute its judgment of academic competence for the judgment 

of the appropriate colleagues of the complainant. The function of the 

Grievance Committee shall be to determine 

a. whether there were cleariy enunciated University, Campus and Depart- 
mental standards, policies, procedures and priorities by which to assess 
the merit of the complaint, and whether the complainant was given a 
reasonable opportunity to demonstrate his/her academic merit; 

b. whether the stated standards, policies, procedures and priorities were 
applied to the complainant in a nondiscriminatory manner. 

N. Within ten (10) working days after hearing all the evidence and arguments, 
the Human Relations Grievance Committee shall prepare a written decision 
based solely on the evidence presented at the hearing. This decision shall 
include a summary of the evidence before the Committee and the 
Committee's findings as to whether or not a violation of the Code has 
occun'ed, and the recommendations of the Committee. Grievance Commit- 
tees may recommend whatever forms of relief they deem appropriate, but 
must take due cognizance of the limitations imposed by State law and by the 
procedures established by the Board of Regents, for example, the proce- 
dures by which promotion in academic rank is achieved. Within five (5) 
working days after the decision has been filed in the Office of Human 
Relations Programs, the Director of that Office will formally notify all parties 
to the dispute, the Chancellor and the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human 
Relations of the decision. 

0. The Chancellor shall within ten (10) worthing days of his receipt of the 
decision of the Human Relations Grievance Committee issue an order 
specifying what actions, if any, must be taken by individuals or groups found 
to be guilty of violating the provisions of this Code. 

P. When a hearing has been scheduled by an outside agency or court, the 
Office of Human Relations Programs may, with the approval of the Senate 
Adjunct Committee on Human Relations, prior to the convening of a Human 
Relations Grievance Committee to hear a case, postpone or terminate the 
Campus grievance proceedings when such postponement or termination is 
in its judgment wan-anted by administrative considerations such as staff 
limitations and workload, or at the request of a party upon a showing that the 
Campus hearing will either conflict with the off-Campus hearing, or that 
participation in the Campus hearing will unreasonatily burden a party's 
preparation of his/her case or othenwise work to his/her prejudice. Such 



postponement or termination shall be reported to the complainant, respond- 
ent and Chancellor. In any case where a complaint has been the subject of 
prior administrative or judicial resolution or where a complaint becomes the 
subject of such resolution during the course of proceedings under this Code, 
the procedures of this Code will not be applicable or will terminate, as the 
case may be. 

Q. The Chancellor shall provide a written explanation of his order whenever 
that order is not in keeping with the findings and recommendations of the 
Human Relations Grievance Committee. This explanation shall be sent to all 
parties to the dispute, to the Chairman of the Senate Adjunct Committee on 
Human Relations, to the Director of the Human Relations Programs and to 
the Chairman of the Senate. The Chairman of the Senate Adjunct 
Committee on Human Relations shall report to the Senate Executive 
Committee concerning the order and explanation at the next meeting of the 
Executive Committee, and that body shall put the matter on the agenda of 
the next meeting of the Senate. 

R. When required by law, copies of the Human Relations Grievance Commit- 
tee's findings and recommendations and of the Chancellor's order and 
explanation, if any, shall be sent to the State and Federal agencies charged 
with enforcement of Article 49B of the Annotated Code of Maryland and the 
Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1968 or their successors. 

S. When a complainant receives a decision on his/her charge of discrimination 
from a Human Relations Grievance Committee that decision shall not be 
subject to review under any grievance procedure in force on the Campus. 

T. No affirmative relief shall be made to a complainant by the University unless 
the complainant executes the following release as part of a settlement 
agreement: 

The complainant hereby waives, releases and covenants not to sue the 
University of Maryland or its officers, agents or employees with respect to 
any matters which were or might have been alleged as charges filed under 
the Human Relations Code in the instant case, subject to performance by 
the University of Maryland, its officers, agents and employees, of the 
promises contained in this settlement agreement

Graduates of Maryland High Schools Which are Not Accredited. Graduates 
of Maryland high schools which are not accredited will be admitted if they (a) 
present combined SAT scores at or above the mean for the freshman class the 
preceding year and (b) have at least a 2.0 average in academic courses in high 
school. Applicants from non-accredited high schools in the State of Maryland 
who meet these criteria will be admitted as "regular degree-seeking students 
(conditional status)." Students with conditional admissions status would not be 



12 Admission and Orientation 



eligible to graduate until the conditional status had been removed by successful 
completion of 24 credits with at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. 

Use of Mid-Year Grades. The University will reserve a decision on the 
applications of Maryland residents who do not meet the criteria outlined above 
until mid-year grades are available for the senior year in high school. The College 
Park Campus is unable to utilize the final high school marks in rendering 
decisions for applicants who are applying for admission directly from high school. 
If your mid-year grades for the senior year in high school are available when 
your application is initially considered by the College Park admissions staff, they 
will be used in determining your eligibility for admission. 

Subjects Used for Computation of the High School Academic Grade Point 
Average. Because of variations in course titles in the secondary school systems, 
this listing is not inclusive. It does, however, provide you with examples of the 
types of courses the College Park Campus utilizes in computing the high school 
academic grade point average.

Special Admissions Options 

To serve students who are not typical freshmen, the College Park campus 
has developed a variety of non-traditional admissions options: 

High schooi Equivalence Examination. Maryland residents who are at least 16 
years of age and have not received a high school diploma can be considered for 
admission by presenting the high school General Education Equivalency certifi- 
cate. In order to be admitted the applicant must present an average score of 50 
with no score below 40 on any of the five parts of the test or a minimum score of 
45 on each of the five parts of the test. 

Veterans and Returning Students 

The University welcomes applications from students who have had a break in 
their formal education. Veterans and other adults who do not meet the published 
admissions criteria are considered on an individual basis. Applicants in these 
categories are urged to contact an Admissions Counselor for further informatidn. 

There are several special admissions options for high achieving high school 
students: 

Concurrent Enrollment. High school seniors who have earned a minimum 3.50 
(B-t-) average in academic subjects during grades ten and eleven may enroll on 
the College Park campus for two courses or seven credits. They must file a 
"concurrent admissions" application and transcripts. The permission of the high 
school is required and students must live within commuting distance. Fees are 
assessed on a per-credit hour basis. 

Summer Enrollment. High school students with minimum 3.00 (B) averages may 
enroll for courses during the summer preceding their junior or senior year. They 
must file a regular application and transcripts. Fees are assessed on a per-credit 
hour basis. 

Early Admission. Although the University of Maryland generally requires 
applicants to earn a high school diploma prior to their first registration, the 
College Park Campus will admit well-qualified students without this document 
provided: 

1. they have a minimum B (3.0) average in academic subjects. 

2. the student is within four semester courses (two credits) of high school 
graduation. 



3. the student has the endorsement of the high school and the superintendent 
of schools, when appropriate. 

Out-of-state Freshmen 

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. 

Other Requirements for All Freshmen Applicants 

In general the College Park campus requires freshmen applicants to earn a high 
school diploma prior to their first registration at the University. 

The SAT examination is required of all freshmen applicants. Test results must 
be submitted directly to the College Park Campus by the Educational Testing 
Service. You are strongly urged to include your social security number when 
registering for the SAT. This will expedite processing of your application for 
admission by the College Park Campus. The reporting code for the College Park 
Campus is 5814. The University strongly recommends that the SAT be taken as 
early as possible. The January test is generally the latest acceptable examination 
for fall applicants. Further information on the SAT may be obtained from high 
school guidance offices or directly from the Educational Testing Service, 
Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 

Schooi of Architecture. Admission to the School of Architecture is competitive 
with selection based on previous academic achievement. 

All Architecture applicants must file an application by March 1 to be assured 
of consideration. Because of severe space limitations, admission to this program 
is subject to closure at any time. 

Applications for the School of Architecture are accepted for the fall semester 
only. 

Urban Studies-Fire Science. Urban Studies-Fire Science is an upper division 
program. Freshman and sophomore courses in Fire Science are not available at 
this campus. 

Contact Professor Harry E. Hickey (Room 1 127, Martin Engineering Laborato- 
ry; 454-2424) for information regarding course requirements which must be met 
prior to the admission to the College Park Campus. 

Transfer Student Admission General Statement 

A student who has attended any Institution of higher learning following 
graduation from high school and attempted nine or more credits must be 
considered for admission as a transfer student. 

The University will use the average 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. 

Where the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number that 
can be accommodated in a particular professional or specialized program, 
admission will be based on criteria developed by the University to select the best 
qualified students. 

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

Maryland Residents 

Those Admissible as High School Seniors. Students who are 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 for transfer. 
Maryland residents must have a C average in all previous college-level work to be 
admitted. 

Those Not Admissible as High Schooi Seniors. Maryland residents who are 
not admissible as high school seniors must complete at least 28 semester hours 
with a C or better cumulative average at another institution. 

Transfer Students from Maryland Public Community Colleges. 

Currently, Maryland residents who attend Maryland public community col- 
leges are admitted after they have received the Associate of Arts degree or 
completed 56 semester hours with a C or better cumulative average. However, 
articulation policies for public higher educaton in the State of Maryland are under 
review by the Maryland State Board for Higher Education. If revisions are 
approved, the University will admit students in conformano* with those policies 
developed by the Maryland State Board of Higher Education. 

Where the number of students desiring admission exceeds the number that 
can be accommodated in a particular professional or specialized program, 
admission will be based on criteria developed by the University to select the best 
qualified students. 

Exception to the 56 hours/A.A. degree rule will be made for a student 
attempting to transfer into a program which is not available at the student's 



Admission and Orientation 13 



community college in a full two-year program. In order to be admitted to the 
College Park campus as an exception to the two-year rule, the applicant must 
obtain a letter from the transfer advisor at his/her community college recom- 
mending that the University waive the two-year requirement in his/her case. 

Veterans and Returning Students 

The University welcomes applicants from students who have had a break in 
their formal education. Veterans and other adults who do not meet the published 
admissions criteria are considered on an individual basis. Applicants in these 
categories are urged to contact an Admissions Counselor for further information. 

Out-of-State Transfer Students 

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 transfer presents better than average 
credentials in his or her previous college-level work. 

Undergraduate Students Transferring from Within ttie 
University System 

A student seeking to move from one campus of the University to another 
must have been a regular degree-seeking student eligible to return to his or her 
original campus. 

Students who were special or non-degree students or undergraduate 
students who have been academically dismissed by one campus must contact 
the admissions office of the receiving campus. 

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

Specialized Admissions Requirements 

School of Architecture. Admission to the School of Architecture in the Division 
of Arts and Humanities is competitive with selection based on the transfer 
student's previous academic achievement. All Architecture applicants must file 
an application by March 1 to be assured consideration. Because of severe space 
limitations, admission to this program is subject to closure at any time. 
Applications for the School of Architecture are accepted for the fall semester 
only. Transfer applications for the School of Architecture are not evaluated until 
the eariy summer. 

College of Business artd Management. At its November 17, 1978 meeting, the 
University's Board of Regents approved new admissions policies for the College 
of Business and Management. For additional information, please contact the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

Urban Studles-Rr6 Science. Urban Studies-Fire Science is an upper division 
program. Freshman and sophomore courses in Fire Science are not available at 
this campus. 

Students considering this program should contact Professor Many E. Hickey 
(Room 1127, Martin Engineering Laboratory, 454-2424) immediately for impor- 
tant information. , 

Minority Student Admission 

The Office of Equal Opportunity Recruitment (OEOR) is the primary recnjit- 
ment arm for attracting minority students to the University. OEOR cames out its 
charge by making visitations to high schools, community colleges, and communi- 
ty organizations. The office facilitates the student's admission process and 
provides the student infomiation about the academic and student life of the 
campus. 

OEOR welcomes inquiries from students, parents, and college advisers. For 
more information, contact OEOR, Room 0107, North Administration Building, 
University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. Telephone (301) 454-4844. 

Foreign Student Admissions 

The University of Maryland values the contribution foreign students make to 
the College Park community. Admission is extremely competitive and offered only 
to those applicants who, throughout secondary school and college work taken, 
have consistently received marks or examination results which are considered to 
be "very good" or "excellent." Because of the keen competition at the University 
of Maryland, we suggest you apply early to several other colleges or universities 
in the event we are unable to offer you admission. 

Nonimmigrant applicants for admission at the undergraduate level are 
required to file an application at least six months in advance of the semester for 
which they seek entrance. Each applicant will be required to submit (1) a 
completed application for admission on a form available on request from the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions; (2) official copy(ies) of secondary school 



records, and/or (3) certificate(s) of completion of secondary school examina- 
tions, and/or (4) transcripts of college or university studies. Original documents 
written in a language other than English must be accompanied by certified 
English translations. 

Return of Foreign Transcripts. Transcripts of applicants with foreign credentials 
are maintained by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for two years. If these 
documents are original copies, the student must request their return within two 
years of application. At the end of this period, the transcripts are destroyed. 

The Director of International Education Services will provide the appropriate 
certificate of eligibility for a nonimmigrant student visa to applicants who are 
accepted for admission to the University of Maryland. As part of this acceptance 
procedure, nonimmigrants must furnish proof of adequate financial support for 
educational and living expenses since there are severe limitations placed on 
working in the U.S. Additionally, foreign applicants, including transfer applicants, 
whose native language is not English must demonstrate a satisfactory level of 
English proficiency, which will enable them to pursue a full course of approved 
study in one of the University colleges or divisions. The Test of English as A 
Foreign Language (TOEFL) is the standard used by the University of Maryland to 
determine English proficiency. Information and an application form can be 
obtained from TOEFL, P.O. Box 899, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, USA. 

Nonimmigrant students accepted for admission will be expected to plan their 
amval sufficiently in advance of the registration period to (a) secure housing and 
(b) attend the special orientation program that is held the week prior to 
registration. 

Immigrant Student Admission 

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

Non-Degree (Special) Student Admission 

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

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. Students who wish 
to take courses at the graduate level (600 and above) must contact the Graduate 
School for information concerning admission requirements for Advanced Special 
Student status. 

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

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

Pre-Professlonal Programs 

The College Pari< Campus offers pre-professional programs in Dental 
Hygiene, Dentistry, Forestry, Law, Medical Technology, Medicine, Nursing, 
Optometry, 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 these fields. Admission to a pre- 
professional program on the College Park Campus does not guarantee admission 
to another branch of the University or another institution. 

Students who have already earned more than 30 semester hours at another 
college-level institution, and who seek admission to pre-professional programs in 
Nursing, Pharmacy, Dental Hygiene, Physical Therapy. Medical Technology, 
Radiologic Technology, and Forestry, should contact an academic advisor for the 
pre-professional programs at College Park before filing an application for the 
College Park Campus. Please address your correspondence to the academic 
advisor of the specific pre-professional program to which you are applying, for 
example. Academic Advisor, Pre-Nursing Program, University of Maryland, 
College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Golden Identification Card Program 

The College Park campus participates in the University of Maryland's Golden 
Identification Card Program. The campus will make available courses and various 
services to persons who are 60 years of age or older, who are residents of the 
State of Maryland and who are retired (not engaged in gainful employment for 



14 Admission and Orientation 



more than 20 hours per week). When persons eligible for this Program apply for 
the Program and receive tfieir Golden Identification Cards, they may register for 
credit courses as regular or special students in any session. Tuition and most 
other fees will be waived. The Golden Identification Card will entitle eligible 
persons to certain academic services, including the use of the libraries, as well as 
certain other non-academic services. Such services will be available during any 
session only to persons who have registered for one or more courses lor that 
session. 

As of the printing of this catalog, the Golden Identification Card Program has 
been approved for operation through the Spring 1 979 semester. For information 
regarding the possible continuation of the program after this date, contact the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Individual Admissions 

In addition, the Board authorized an individual admissions category which will 
allow 15% of each freshman class, University-wide, to be selected by such 
criteria as exceptional aptitude or talent in art, music, mathematics, dramatics or 
athletics. The educationally disadvantaged will also be given special considera- 
tion based upon information supplied by the individual student and the recom- 
mendations of high school personnel and responsible members of the communi- 
ty. For information pertaining to this category, please contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions. 

Designated Preparation for Admissions and Specific 
Programs 

The Board of Regents further stipulated that the President, in collaboration 
with the Chancellors, may designate the high school preparation desired of all 
undergraduate students admitted to the University, The Chancellors, with the 
approval of the President, may also set high school course requirements for 
specific programs and majors on the individual campuses. In either case, the 
President will announce a timetable for implementation and will grant sufficient 
"lead time" before new requirements take effect. 

Readmission and Reinstatement 

students who do not maintain continuous registration must apply for 
readmission or reinstatement when they desire to return to the University. See 
sections on Withdrawals from the University and Minimum Requirements for 
Retention and Graduation. 

Readmission. A student who has interrupted registration for one or more 
semesters and who was in good academic standing or on academic probation at 
the conclusion of the last semester registered must apply for readmission. 

Reinstatement. A student must apply for reinstatement if he or she has been 
academically dismissed or has officially withdrawn from all courses in the last 
previous semester. 

Deadlines. Dismissed students who wish to apply for reinstatement must 
obsen/e the following deadlines: 



Fall semester— June 15 
Spring semester— November 1 
Summer Session I— April 15 
Summer Session II— May 15 

Exceptions. Students dismissed at the end of the fall semester may apply for 
immediate reinstatement no later than seven days before the first day of spring 
semester registration. Students dismissed at the end of the spnng semester who 
wish to attend the first or second summer session must check with the 
Withdrawal/Re-enrollment Office regarding current policy for summer sessions. 

There are no deadlines for readmission or for reinstatement after an official 
withdrawal, but students are encouraged to apply eariy. (All applications from 
withdrawn students are subject to review by the Faculty Petition Board.) 

Any student whose application will require clearance from the Judicial Affairs 
Office, Health Center, or International Educational Services Office should file 
according to the above deadlines for reinstatement.

Transfer of Credits 

Maryland Council for Higher Education Articulation Agreement. The Univer- 
sity of Maryland fully ascnbes to the Maryland Council for Higher Education 
Articulation Agreement. The complete text of the agreement follows: 

Preamble. The initial overreaching 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 relationsnips 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 coordina- 
tor to assist in accomplishing the policies and procedures outlined in this 
plan. 

2. Admission requirements and curriculum prerequisites shall be stated explic- 
itly. 



16 Admission and Orientation 



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

(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 func- 
tioning 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 tvlaryland 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 who attained an overall "C" (2.0) average, shall be 
eligible for transfer. Normally they will transfer without loss of credits and 
with junior standing provided they have met the requirements and prerequi- 
sites 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 baccalaure- 
ate 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 sfiall 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. Institutioris shall notify each other as soon as possible of pending 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 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 profes- 
sional 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 or she 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 or her evaluation of the situation to the institution frorrfwhich he or she 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 appoint- 
ed subcommittee, receive relevant documentation, opinions, and interpreta- 
tions in written form from the sending and receiving institution and from the 
student. Subcommittee deliberations will be confined to this written docu- 
mentation. The full committee shall act on the subcommittee recommenda- 
tion. 



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 accom- 
modated 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 cnteria 
developed by the receiving institution to select the best qualified students. 

General Statement. In general, credit from academic courses taken at an 
accredited institution in areas that can be considered part of the student's 
University program and in which the student earned a grade of C or better will 
transfer. 

Maryland Public Colleges and Universities. Transfer of course work completed 
at Maryland public colleges and universities is covered by the State Board For 
Higher Education Student Transfer Credit Policy. Course work completed at 
these institutions with minimum grade of "D" will transfer. The applicability of 
courses to the particular program chosen at College Park should be explored with 
an academic advisor/evaluator in the office of the dean or provost (see section 
on Orientation/Pre-Registration). 

Maryland Public Community Colleges. The basic policies governing transfer of 
credit between Maryland public two and four year institutions are set forth in the 
Student Transfer Policies of the State Board For Higher Education. In general the 
policy provides that credit will transfer for course work completed with a grade 
"D" or better if the course was specifically designed as college or univesity 
parallel. Course work in a technical or career program will be evaluated on a 
course-by-course basis. Course work completed at a community college is 
accepted as lower division (first and second year) credit. 

Articulated Programs. An articulated transfer program is a list of community 
college courses which best prepare you for a particular course of study at College 
Park. If you take appropriate courses which are specified in the articulated 
program guide, and earn an acceptable grade, you are guaranteed transfer with 
no loss of credit. 

Articulated career program guides help students plan their new programs 
after changing career objectives. Articulated program guides are available at the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions on the College Park campus and in the 
transfer advisor's office at each of the community colleges. If you check this 
guide you can eliminate all doubt concerning transfer of courses by following a 
program outlined in the guide. 

University of Maryland System. Credits and grades for undergraduate courses 
will transfer to the College Park campus from other University of Maryland 
campuses. The applicability of these courses to the particular program chosen at 
College Park will be determined by an academic advisor/evaluator in the office of 
the dean or provost (see section on Orientation/Pre-Registration). 

Other Universities and Colleges. Credit will be transfered from accredited 
institutions of higher education, if the course is completed with a grade of "C" or 
higher and if the course is similar to course work offered at College Park. The 
applicability of these courses to the particular course of study chosen at College 
park will be determined by an academic advisor/evaluator in the office of the 
dean or provost. 

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

Credit by Examination 

Advanced Placement Program. Students entering the University from second- 
ary schools may obtain advanced placement and college credit on the basis of 
their performance on the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced 
Placement Program examinations. These examinations are normally given to 
eligible high school seniors during the May preceding matriculation in college. 

The University will award advanced placement or college credit for appropri- 
ate scores on the following examinations: biology, chemistry, English, French, 
German, Spanish, American history, European history, Latin, mathematics, and 
physics. The College Park campus specifies that these tests may not be taken 
after matriculation at a collegiate institution. 

Students with specific questions about the University's policy may contact the 
Administrative Dean for Undergraduate Studies. Detailed information about the 
examinations and registration procedures may be obtained from your high school 
guidance counselor or from the Director of Advanced Placement Program, 
College Entrance Examination Board, 888 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 
10018.

other Credit by Examination Options. Students are encouraged to refer to 
other sections of tfils catalog for information on additional credit by examination 
options. 

Determination of In-State Status for Admission, and 
Charge Differential Purposes 

The Board of Regents of the University of Maryland approved new regula- 
tions for the determination of in-state status for admission, tuition and charge- 
diflerential purposes at its meeting on September 21, 1973. The new regulations 
became effective with the January 1974 term. 

An initial determination of in-state status for admission, tuition and charge- 
difterential purposes will be made by the University at the time a student's 
application for admission is under consideration. The determination made at that 
time, and any determination made thereafter shall prevail in each semester until 
the determination is successfully challenged. The deadline lor meeting all 
requiren>ents for in-stale status and for submitting all documents for reclassifica- 
tion is ttie last day of late registration for the semester if the student wishes to be 
classified as an in-state student 

The volume of requests for reclassification may necessitate a delay in 
completing the review process. It is hoped that a decision in each case will be 
made within ninety (90) days of receipt of a request for redetermination and all 
necessary documentation. During this period of time, or any further period of time 
required by the University, fees and charges based on the previous determination 
must be paid. If the determination is changed, any excess fees and charges will 
be refunded. 

s Petitions for review of eligibility, related documents and questions concerning 
the policy of the University of Maryland for the determination of in-state status 
should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, North Administra- 
tion Building, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742; Phone (301) 
454^137. 

Students Classified as In-State for Admission, Tuition and Charge-Differen- 
tial Purposes. Students classified as in-state for admission, tuition and charge- 
differential purposes are responsible for notifying the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions in wnting within 15 days of any change in their circumstances which 
might in any way affect their classification at the College Park Campus. 

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

Graduate Student Admission 

Admission to graduate study at the University of Maryland is the responsibility 
of the Graduate School. Correspondence concerning application for admission to 
The Graduate School should be addressed to The Graduate School, University of 
Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Orientation Programs 

Upon final admission to the University the new student will receive materials 
about the Orientation and Registration Program. All entering students are 
encouraged to attend. The primary goals of the program are to inform the student 
about the University, and to help the student register for the first semester. 
Through this program the entering student receives a personalized and individual 
introduction to the University. 

Parents also have an opportunity to learn about University life through the 
Parent Orientation Program. More information about this program is provided 
under the description of services offered by the Office of Student Affairs. Office 
location: Student Union Building, Telephone: 454-5752. 



Fees & Expenses 



Registration is not completed or official until all financial obligations are 
satisfied. Returning students will not be permitted to complete registration until all 
financial obligations to the University including library fines, parking violation 
assessments and other penalty fees and service charges are paid in full. 

The University of Maryland does not have a deferred payment plan. Payment 
for past due balances and current semester fees are due on or before the first 
day of classes. 

It is the policy of the University not to defer payment on the basis of a pending 
application for financial assistance to an outside agency, including Veterans 
Administration benefits, bank loans, guaranteed student loan programs, etc. 

Although the University regularly mails bills to students, it cannot assume 
responsibility for their receipt. If a student bill is not received on or before the 
beginning of each semester, it is the student's responsibility to obtain a copy of 
the bill at Room 1 103, South Administration Building, between the hours of 8:30 
a.m. and 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. 



All checks or money orders should be made payable to the University of 
Maryland for the exact amount due. Student name and student Social Security 
number should be written on the front side of the check. University grant, 
scholarship, or workship awards, will be deducted on the first bill, mailed 
approximately one month after the start of the semester. However, the first 
estimated bill mailed prior to the beginning of each semester may not include 
these deductions. 

Students will be severed from University services for delinquent indebtedness 
to the University. In the event that severance occurs, the individual may make 
payment during the semester in which services were severed and all services 
except housing will be restored. A $25.00 Restoration of Sen/ices fee will be 
assessed in addition to payment for the total past due amount. 

Students removed from housing because of delinquent indebtedness will be 
required to reapply for housing after they have satisfied their financial obligation. 
Students who are severed from University services and who fail to pay the 
indebtedness during the semester in which severance occurs will be ineligible to 
preregister for subsequent semesters until the debt and the $25.00 Restoration 
fee are cleared. 

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

The State has established, under legislative mandate, a central collections 
unit within the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning. The University is 
required by State Law to refer all delinquent accounts to the State Collections 
Unit. 

All Accounts Due From Students, Faculty, Staff, Non-Students, etc.. Are 
Included Within These Guidelines 

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

No degree, grades, diploma, certificate, or transcript of record will be issued 
to a student who has not made satisfactory settlement of his or her account. 

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

described above is not adhered to. The effective date used in computing refunds 
is the date the withdrawal form is filed in the Withdrawal/Reenrollment Office. 
Stop Payment on a check, failure to pay the semester bill, failure to attend 
classes, does not constitute withdrawal. A request for a refund must be 
processed by the student with the Division of Business Services, otherwise any 
credit on the student account will automatically be carried over to the next 
semester. 

Cancellation of Registration— Submitted to the Withdrawal/Reenroll- 
ment Office before the official first day of classes entitles the student to a

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. 

No part of the charges for room and board is refundable except when the 
student officially withdraws from the University or when he or she 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. 

In computing refunds to students who have received the benefit of scholar- 
ships and loans from University Funds, the computation will be made to return the 
maximum amount to the scholarship and loan accounts without loss to the 
University. 

A student who registers as a full-time undergraduate will receive no refund of 
the General Fee when courses are dropped (regardless 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. 



Financial Aid 

The Office of Student Financial 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 academic ability and financial needs. In making awards, 
consideration may be given to character, achievement, participation in student 
activities, and to other attributes which may indicate success in college. It is the 
intent of the committee to make awards to those qualified students who might not 
otherwise be able to pursue college studies. Part-time employment opportunities 
on campus are open to all students, but are dependent upon the availability of 
jobs and the student's particular skills and abilities. 

Additional information is available from the Director, Office of Student 
Financial Aid, Room 2130, North Administration Building, University of fvlaryland. 
College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Academic Requirements For Eligibility 

The federally appropriated programs require that you make academic 
progress toward your degree or diploma. The University assumes that all 
students admitted to its programs as entering freshmen or transfer students meet 
the basic academic grade standards for consideration for financial aid, except for 
scholarships. Partial scholarships require a 3.0 grade point average (GPA), both 
for initial consideration and for renewal. Full scholarships require a 3.5 GPA. 

To receive consideration for grants, loans, and jobs in succeeding years, you 
must achieve the following minimum GPA at the end of each two semesters of 
work at the University; 

Semester Credit Hours Grade Point Average 

to 27 1.70 

28 to 55 1.80 

56 to 85 1.90 

86 to Graduation 2.00 

You must be continuously enrolled for a minimum of 12 credit hours per 
semester to be eligible for and to receive all institutional scholarships and grants. 
Loans and jobs (College Work-Study Program) require a minimum of 6 semester 
hours per semester for undergraduates. If you are a graduate student, you must 
either comply with the 6 hours minimum or 24 academic units, whichever is less. 

Exceptions to the above policy rests solely with the Financial Aid Committee. 

Scholarships and grants are awarded for a maximum of 4 years for 4-year 
programs and 5 years for Engineering, Architecture, and the I.E.D. programs. 
Though only 12 hours are required to retain a scholarship or grant award, the 
student who maintains such a level will not graduate in t.'.e normal time, and thus, 
will be limited to loans and jobs after the 4th or 5th year. Students are strongly 
encouraged to average 15 hours per semester. 

Scholarships and Grants 

fviost scholarships and grants are awarded to students before they enter the 
University, However, students who have completed one or more semesters, and 
have not received such an award, are eligible to apply. It is usually inadvisable for 
a student to apply for a specific scholar ^hio. Each applicant will receive 



consideration for all scholarships for which he or she is eligible. Students must 
submit an application by April 1 and all supporting documents by Ivlay 1 in order 
to receive consideration for scholarship assistance for the ensuing year. Award 
letters are normally mailed between June 1 and July 15. Any applicant who does 
not receive an award letter during this period should assume that he or she has 
not been selected for a scholarship. 

Regulations and procedures for the awarding of scholarships and grants are 
formulated by the Committee on Financial Aid. All recipients are subject to the 
academic and non-academic regulations and requirements of the University. 

The committee reserves the right to review the scholarship program annually 
and to make adjustments in the amount and recipients of awards in accordance 
with the funds available and scholastic achievement. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. Under the provisions of the 
Education Amendments of 1976, grants are available to encourage youth of 
exceptional financial needs to continue their post secondary school education. A 
recipient must be a United States citizen enrolled as a full-time undergraduate. 
The amount of the grant must be matched by an equal amount of some other 
type of aid provided through the University. 

Basic Educational Opportunity Grants. The federal government provides 
grants to approved students who need it to attend post high-school educational 
institutions. The maximum award is $1800 minus the expected family contribu- 
tion. In those years when Congressional appropriations are less than needed, 
eligible students will receive a percentage of their entitlement. Applications are 
available in post high school institutions and the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

Maryland State Scholarships. The General Assembly of f^aryland has created 
several programs of scholarships for Ivlaryland residents who need financial help 
to obtain a college education. The undergraduate programs are (1) General State 
scholarships, (2) Senatorial scholarships, and (3) House of Delegates scholar- 
ships. Students wishing to apply for these scholarships should contact their 
guidance counselor if a high-school senior or the Office of Student Financial Aid if 
presently attending the University of Maryland. Students who are entehng college 
for the first time must take the Scholastic Aptitude Test in November or 
December of their senior year. The test is not required of college students who 
have completed at least 24 semester hours. A general application and a Financial 
Aid form must be filed with College Scholarship Service in Princeton, N.J., by 
February 15 for the following academic year. For additional information, contact 
the Maryland State Scholarship Board, 2100 Guilford Avenue, Baltimore,

Local and National Scholarships. In addition to the scholarships provided by

Loans 

Loan funds to meet educational expenses are available for students enrolled 
in the University. The extent of financial need must be clearly established by 
providing a complete statement of the applicant's financial resources and 
estimated expenses for the academic year. 

Loan awards are normally granted on a yearly basis, although short-term and 
emergency loans are granted for shorter periods. To apply for a long-term loan, 
an application should be filed before AphI 1 for the ensuing year. If funds are 
available, applications may be considered at other times, but the student should 
bear in mind that it generally takes about six weeks to process a loan. 

Loans are not available for non-educational expenses nor are they available 
for repayment of previously incurred indebtedness. 

National Direct Student Loan Program. This loan fund was established by the 
federal government in agreement with the University of Maryland to make low- 
interest loans available to students with clearly established financial need. 
Applicants must be United States nationals (citizens and permanent resident 
status) and must be enrolled for six or more credit hours at day school on the 
College Park Campus. 

The borrower must sign a note. Repayment begins nine months after the 
borrower leaves school and must be completed within ten years thereafter. No 
interest is charged until the beginning of the repayment schedule. Interest after 
that date is charged at the rate of three percent per annum. 

Cancellation provisions are available for qualified service as a teacher of the 
handicapped and in low income schools, or for military service in areas of 
hostility. 



Institutional Student Loans. Institutional loan funds have been established 
through the generosity of University organizations, alumni, faculty, staff, and 
friends. These loans are normlly available at low interest rates to upperclassmen 
only. For specific information, the student should inquire at the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

Law Enforcement Education Program Loan and Grant. Loans: Qualified full- 
time pre-service students in approved fields may apply for loan assistance up to 
$2,200 per academic year (not to exceed the cost of tuition and fees). Loan funds 
are not always availalile each academic year. The loan is cancelled at the rate of 
25 percent per year of full-time employment in cnminal justice or repaid at the 
rate of 7 percent simple interest, commencing six months after termination of full- 
time study. Grants: In-service employees of police, courts and corrections 
agencies enrolled in courses related to law enforcement may receive up to $400 
per semester (not to exceed cost of tuition and fees). Grant recipients must agree 
to remain in the service of their employing law enforcement agency for at least 
two years following completion of their courses. Any student who meets the 
eligibility requirements for both a loan and a grant may receive both concurrently. 
Interested students should contact either the Dean, University College, or 
Director, Institute of Criminal Justice and Criminology, Division of Behavioral and 
Social Sciences. 

Guaranteed Student Loans. Loan programs have been established through the 
Maryland Higher Education Loan Corporation and the United Student Aid Fund 
which permit students to borrow money from their hometown banks or other 
financial institutions. The programs enable undergraduates in good standing to 
borrow up to $2,500, depending upon the particular state's program. Notes may 
not bear more than seven percent simple interest, and monthly repayments begin 
ten months after graduation or withdrawal from school. The federal government 
will pay the interest for all students who are enrolled for at least six semester 
hours. Further details regarding this program may be secured from the Office of 
Student Aid. 

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 Financial Aid through the Job 
Referral Service located in Room 0127, Foreign Language Building, serves 
without charge as a clearinghouse for students seeking part-time work and 
employers seeking help. Many jobs 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 Workshop program. 
Under this program students may earn approximately their board by working ten 
hours per week. After one successful semester the work load may be increased 
at the request of the student. 

For positions other than dining service, students normally cannot make 
arrangements for employment until they are 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 she or he can seek 
employment best suited to the student's free time. 

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

College Work-Study Program 

Under provisions of the Educational Amendments of 1976, employment may 
be awarded as a means of financial aid to students who (1) are In need of 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 
twenty 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. 



Academic Regulations and 
Requirements 

introduction 

The academic regulations and requirements of the College Park Campus are 
designed to provide and enhance a maximum educational environment for the 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 23 



entire campus academic community. The success of the design depends upon 
the mutual respect, courteous treatment, and consideration of everyone involved. 
Student compliance with the regulations of all courses and programs is based in 
part upon certain expectations and instructional procedures for which the faculty 
is responsible. Included in these are the following: 

1. A written description at the beginning of each undergraduate course 
specifying in general terms the content, nature of assignments, examination 
procedures, and the bases for determining final grades. In cases where all 
or some of this information cannot be provided at the beginning of the 
course, a clear of the delay and the bases of course development are 
provided. 

2. Fair and impartial treatment In all evaluations. This Includes, but is not 
limited to: 

a.) adequate notice of major papers and examinations in the course; 
b.) a sufficient number of recitations, performances, quizzes, tests, graded 

assignments and/or student/instructor conferences to permit evaluation 

of student progress throughout the course; 
c.) while matenals remain reasonably current, an opportunity to review 

papers and examinations after evaluation by the instructor. 

3. Equal and fair access to all assigned materials. 

4. A reasoned approach to the subject which attempts to make the student 
aware of the existence of different points of view. 

5. Fair and reasonable access to the instructor during announced regular 
office hours or by appointment. 

6. Regular attendance by assigned faculty and reasonable adherence to 
published Campus schedules and location of classes and examinations. 
Classes not specified in the schedules are arranged at a mutually agreeable 
time on Campus, unless off-campus work is clearly justified. 

7. Reasonable confidentiality of information gained through student-faculty 
contact. 

8. Public acknowledgment of significant student assistance in the preparation 
of materials, articles, books, devices and the like. 

In similar manner the student responsibility to the community of scholarship 
includes: 

1. Submission only of original work, or work clearly identified as to the source 
and/or the nature of any significant outside assistance. 

2. A careful and conscientious use of the registration system with due regard 
for the needs of other students. 

3. Consistent, non-disruptive attendance in classes with consideration for the 
efforts of the instructor. 

4. Consistent, conscientious application to master the content and materials of 
the courses as prescribed; to comply writh posted or agreed upon schedules, 
and to request exceptions only for the most exigent reasons. 

In support of the Academic Regulations, the academic units (programs, 
departments, colleges, schools, divisions) in cooperation with the Office of the 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies and the Office of Admissions and Registrations 
provide the following: 

1. Accurate information on academic requirements through designated ad- 
visors and referral to other parties for additional guidance. 

2. Equitable course registration. 

3. Specification and impartial application of policy and procedures in the 
determination of academic honors and awards. 

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 41.) At least 6 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. Area A: &-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 students may select 
either the pass-fail or letter grading option for these courses as outlined on page 
25, 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 
SAT Verbal (score announced annually) or an acceptable score on the English 
Advanced Placement Test (score announced annually), or by satisfactory 
completion of a similar writing 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 may be in addition to the 12- 
hour maximum in any area. 



Students who entered the University prior to June, 1973 have the option of 
completing requirements under the former General Education Program rather 
than the new General University Requirements. Each student is responsible for 
making certain that the various provisions 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— betore register- 
ing 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 Schedule 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, a full-time undergraduate may drop or add courses or change 
sections with no charge. Part-time undergraduate students should consult 
the directions/deadlines in the Schedule of Classes to avoid incurring 
additional charges. Courses so dropped during this regii ation 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 department 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 this 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 by the Office of Registrations. No student is 
permitted 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 
which the student expects a degree. The same njle 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 cumcula, 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. 

Identification Cards 

Photo Transaction Cards are issued at the time the student first registers for 
classes. The card is to be used for the entire duration of enrollment and is valid 
each semester only when the student also possesses a current semester 
Registration Card. 

Students who preregister will receive a new Registration Card along with their 
Class Schedule. This card will validate their Photo Transaction Card. Both cards 
should be earned at all times. 



24 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



Students who do not preregister will receive identification cards when they do 
register. 

Together the Photo Transaction Card and Registration Card can be used by 
all students to withdraw books from the libraries, for admission to most athletic, 
social, and cultural events, and as a general form of identification on campus. 
Students who have food service contracts must use the Photo Transaction Card 
for admission to the dining halls. 

THERE IS A REPLACEMENT CHARGE OF $1.00 FOR LOST OR STOLEN 
REGISTRATION CARDS AND $7.00 FOR LOST, STOLEN, OR BROKEN 
PHOTO TRANSACTION CARDS. (NOTE: THE FEE FOR BROKEN CARDS 
APPLIES TO NEW PHOTO TRANSACTION CARDS ISSUED AFTER THE FALL 
1977 SEMESTER.) 

Questions concerning the identification system should be addressed to the 
Office of Registrations (454-5365). 

Veterans Affairs 

Two Veterans Administration counselors work on Campus to assist veterans, 
their dependents, and service men and women with all VA related questions and 
problems. These representatives can offer you help in getting your monthly 
educational asistance checks, as well as other less known but available benefits. 
Some of the other benefits you may be interested in are tutoring assistance; low- 
cost group life insurance; vocational rehabilitation services; educational loans; 
guaranteed home loans; and compensation for service-connected disabilities. 

The counselors are available on a walk-in basis during normal office hours in 
Room 1130A, Morth Administration Building. Telephone: 454-5276, and 
454-5734. 

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. 

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 in Section III of this 
catalog. 

Each candidate for a degree or certificate must file a formal application for it 
with the Office of Records & Registrations. This must be done by the end of the 
second week of classes or the second week of the summer session at the end of 
which the student 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 hours of laboratory or 
field work are equivalent to one lecture or recitation penod. 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, the semester credit load must range from 12 to 19 hours so that 
he would complete from 30 to 36 hours each year toward the 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. 

Examinations 

1 . A final examination shall be given in every undergraduate course. Excep- 
tions 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 chair- 
man, 

2. To expedite arrangements for commencement, final grades of undergradu- 
ate 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 adminis- 
tration 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 phnted set of questions shall be placed in 
the hands of every examinee in every test or examination requihng 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 examina- 
tions that will make dishonesty difficult, 

9. Only clerical help approved by the department chairman shall be employed 
in 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 inquines 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. 

18. 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 wnting 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 

The attempt to complete course requirements by presenting work which is 
produced using means other than those allowed is called academic dishonesty. 
Such action is a violation of both the regulations and spirit of the academic 
community and can result in severe penalty. 

The most common forms of academic dishonesty are cheating and plagia- 
rism. While the two terms are interrelated, cheating refers to the use of 
unauthorized aids, hidden notes and/or the act of copying another person's work 
during examinations, in the laboratory and the like. The term plagiarism usually 
refers to work done outside the classroom such as the preparation of term papers 
and reports. In brief, plagiansm is the presentation of work or ideas of other 
people as one's own. Students who for any reason have a question concerning 
what may be considered plagiansm may obtain written explanatory materials from 
the Department of English and guidance from any faculty member. Ignorance of 
accepted practice will not stand as an excuse. 

In cases involving charges of academic irregularities or dishonesty in an 
examination, class work or course requirements by a student, the instructor in the 
course or person in charge of the activity shall report to the instructional 
department chairperson or dean if there is no chairperson any information 
received and the facts within his or her knowledge. If the chairperson 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 provosl will then confer with the student's 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 chairperson to dispose of the 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 25 



charges, limiting the maximum penalty to disciplinary probation and a grade of F 
in the course, provided the penalty is accepted by the student in writing. In such 
case the department chairperson 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 Dishon- 
esty. The Committee will consist of one member from the faculty of the college or 
division administered by the dean or provost as chairperson, one undergraduate 
student, and one member from the faculty of the student's college or division 
appointed by the dean of that college or provost of the 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. If within jurisdiction of the Dean for Undergradu- 
ate Studies that Dean will appoint the ad hoc Committee on Academic 
Dishonesty consisting of two faculty having experience in the General Studies 
Program, one serving as chairperson, and one student in that program. 

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, 
the student's dean or provost, 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 within thirty days. 

The student may file the appeal through the Judiciary Office to the Adjunct 
Committee. The Adjunct Committee will schedule a hearing within thirty days from 
receipt of the appeal notice. The Chairperson of the Adjunct Committee will notify 
the student in writing of the time and place of the appeal hearing at least ten 
calendar days in advance. 

Marl(ing 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 be changed only 
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 aver- 
ages, 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. The mark 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 achieve- 
ment 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. 

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. The mark of 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 the selection of this option by the end of the schedule adjustment period. 
In computation of quality points achieved for 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 of 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 for a semester, a mark of S will be assigned a value 
of 2 quality points per credit hour. 

9. The mark I is an exceptional mark which is an instructor option. It is given 
only to a student whose work in a courst 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: othenwise the I becomes terminal (equivalent to W). 
Exceptions to the time penod cited above may be granted by the student's 
dean or provost upon the wntten request of the student if circumstances 
warrant further delay. If the instructor is unavailable, the department 
chairman will, upon request of the student, make appropnate arrangements 
for the student to complete the course requirements. It is the responsibility 
of the instructor or department chairman concerned to return the appropri- 
ate 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 Registra- 
tions. The Office of Registrations will promptly notify the instructor that the 
student has withdrawn from the course. 

1 1 . 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-Fail 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 be applica- 
ble to 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 standarized CL€P (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 offenng the course. 

3. The applicant must be formally admitted to the University of Maryland, and 
be in good academic standing. Posting of credit, however, will be delayed 
until the student has a transcript established. 

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 schedule adjustment period.) 

b. The instructor makes the results of the examination available to the 
student prior to formal submission of the grade. Before formal submis- 
sion of the grade, a student may elect not to have this grade recorded. If 
a student makes this choice 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. 



26 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



5. Letter grades earned on examinations to establish credit (If accepted by the 
student) are entered on the student's transcnpt and used in computing the 
cumulative grade point average, A student may elect to take an examiantion 
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, 

, 7, Fees for 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. Students are charged $30.00 for each course examination regardless of 
the number of credits. This fee must be paid prior to taking the 
examination and is not refundable regardless of whether or not the 
student completes the examination. 

Degree Requirements 

1. It is the responsibility of departments, colleges, divisions, or appropriate 
academic units to establish and publish clearly defined degree require- 
ments. 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 authonties to 
ascertain his or her standing in this respect. For this purpose the student 
should be sure to preserve the copy of ttie semester grade report issued by 
the Office of Records and 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 curncula 
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 registenng 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 fvlaryland. College Park, must satisfactonly 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 prescnbed 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 major, supporting 
area, college, division and General University and elective requirements of 
both curricula. No course used in either curriculum to satisfy a major, 
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 
t^^inimum Requirements for Retention and Graduation.) 

7. Applications for diplomas must be filed with the Office of Records and 
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 a degree. 

Attendance 

1 . The University expects each student to take full responsibility for his or her 
academic work and academic progress. The student, to progress satisfacto- 



rily, must meet the quantitative requirements of each course for which he or 
she is registered. Students are expected to attend classes regularly, for 
consistent attendance otters the most effective opportunity open to all 
students to gam 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 in courses where in- 
class participation is a significant part of the work of the course) will be 
handled by the instructor in the course in accordance with the general policy 
of his or her department and college. 

6. Examinations and tests: All examinations and tests shall be given during 
class hours in accordance with the regularly scheduled (or officially 
"arranged") time and place of each course listed in the Schedule of Classes 
and/or the Undergraduate Catalog. Unpublished changes in the scheduling 
or location of classes/tests must be approved by the department chairman 
and reported to the Provost. It is the responsibility of the student to be 
informed concerning the dates of announced quizzes, tests and examina- 
tions. 

It is the policy of the University to excuse the absences of students that 
result from religious observances and to provide without penalty for the 
rescheduling of examinations that fall on religious holidays. An instructor is 
not under obligation to give a student a make-up examination unless the 
absence was caused by illness, religious observance or by participating in 
University activities at the request of University authorities. 

A make-up examination, when permitted, must be given on Campus, 
unless the published schedule and course description require other arrange- 
ments. The make-up examination must be at a time and place mutually 
agreeable to the instructor and student, cover only the material for which the 
student was originally responsible, and be given within a time limit thatfetains 
currency of the material. The make-up must not interfere with the student's 
regularly scheduled classes. In the event that a group of students require the 
same make-up examination, one make-up time may be scheduled at the 
convenience of the instructor and the largest possible number of students 
involved. Under the same guidelines students shall have equal access to all 
information and drills missed due to the reasons listed. 

Dismissal of Delinquent Students 

The University reserves the right to request at any time the withdrawal of a 
student who cannot or does not maintain the required standard of scholarship, or 
whose continuance in the University would be detrimental to his or her health, or 
to the health of others, or whose conduct is not satisfactory to the authorities of 
the University. Specific scholastic requirements are set forth in the Minimum 
Requirements for Retention and Graduation. 

Withdrawal From the University 

1. Should a student desire or be compelled to withdraw from the University at 
any time, he or she must secure a form for withdrawal from the Withdraw- 
al/Reenrollment Office, and submit the form along with the semester 
Identification/Registration card. Any student listed under the Division of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences must obtain the withdrawal form from that 
Division and obtain the proper signature before submitting it to the 
Withdrawal/Reenrollment Office. 

2. The effective date of withdrawal as far as refunds are concerned is the date 
that the withdrawal form is received by the Withdrawal/Re-enrollment 
Office. A notation of WITHDRAWN and the effective date of the withdrawal 
will be posted to the permanent record. The instructors and the Divisional 
Offices will be notified of all withdrawn students. The deadline date for 
submitting the withdrawal form for each semester is the last official day of 
final examinations.

position? Career Development Center programs and services are designed to be 
most effectively used by students beginning in the freshman year and continuing 
through the college years. Students who begin to effectively plan their education

Office of Experiential Learning Programs

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 the following: 

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 students on a competitive basis. 

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. Information on the campus- 
wide field experience courses, 386/387, is provided by the ELP staff. The student 
should be aware that this particular set of courses (386/387) can only be taken in 
one department once and in one department at a time for a total of no more than 
24 semester hours of credit during the student's academic career. ELP will help 
students to match their interests with existing courses and community place- 
ments and find departments willing to sponsor activities proposed by students. 
The Office also assists departments in finding suitable placements for students. 

Service/Learning. The Office maintains a listing of over 500 organizations which 
have expressed an interest in working with University of Maryland student 
volunteers. Without the complications of arranging credit or pay, volunteers have 
an opportunity to investigate their interests and gain experience. PACE (People 
Active in Community Effort), a student-organized program, 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 is 
located in 1101 of the Student Union Building. 

Information about all these programs may be obtained through the Office of 
Experiential Learning Programs, 0119 Undergraduate Library, 454-4767. 

Bachelor of General Studies 

WHAT IS THE BGS PROGRAM? The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) 
program permits a student to obtain an education in a broad range of disciplines 
without adhering to a previously defined curriculum with specialization in one 
department or division. While it allows the student to design concentrations of up 
to 30 credits in a single department, its purpose is to encourage breadth of 
education. 

WHAT KIND OF STUDENTS ARE IN THE BGS PROGRAM? Many of the over 
600 BGS students wish the broadest possible education and 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 major" 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? While early 
BGS graduates have not experienced unusual problems with further education 
and employment, the individual student's postbaccalaureate experience may well 
depend on the quality of program which he/she designs within the parameters of 
the BGS requirements. The reception of an individual student by graduate 
schools and employers depends on this student, what kind of 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 the first BGS graduates indicated that a large 
percentage went into business or government, that many continued their 
education, and that the remainder were in a variety of occupations. 

HOW DO I APPLY? See Dr. Elizabeth Koopmann, Assistant Dean for Undergrad- 
uate Studies, in 1115 Undergraduate Library, 454-2530/31. 

Individual Studies Program 

WHAT IS INDIVIDUAL STUDIES? Individual Studies is often called the "design 
your own major" 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. 

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 



Office of Academic Affairs 33 



admission which are listed above. To assure assignment of proper credit lor 
students transferring out of the Individual Studies Program, all work will be graded 
on a semester-by-semester basis. 

Change of tutor may become necessary because of 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 
student's program. 

IS INDIVIDUAL STUDIES AN HONORS PROGRAM? No. IVSP 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 expen- 
ences (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, 454-2530/31. 

Minority Student Education 

The Office of Ivlinority 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 on Student Life. It 
is responsible for addressing the needs of minonty students dunng their 
experience at the University of Ivlaryland. This responsibility takes the Office of 
Ivlinority Student Education through a broad range of concerns, from the 
introduction of minonty students to the University to special supportive programs, 
with special emphasis on the areas of recruitment, retention and graduation. 

OMSE seeks to develop a comprehensive academic articulation program that 
will facilitate better utilization of, and linkages with, existing University resources. 
This includes providing minonty students with meaningful career advisement in 
areas that offer both good job opportunities and good salahes. For general 
program information, contact Director, Office of Ivlinority Student Education, 
Room 3151 Undergraduate Library. Phone: 454-4901. 

The office is directly responsible for the administration of the Nyumburu 
Community and the Minority Advisement Program (MAP). 

The following is a brief description of the programs administered by the Office 
of Minority Student Education. 

NYUMBURU COMMUNITY CENTER. Nyumburu (Swahili word meaning "free- 
dom house") Center functions throughout the year to present a wide range of 
cultural events through a variety of art forms and the humanities. Programs and 
activities presented by Nyumburu focus on the black experience as it exists in the 
United States, Caribbean and Africa. 

Cultural offerings at Nyumburu include symposia and workshops conducted 
by visiting artists and scholars in the areas of creative writing and literature, art, 
music, drama and dance. A Festival of Black Arts and a Writer's Conference held 
annually highlight specific areas of cultural achievement and contribution by 
minority peoples. 

In cooperation with the Afro-American Studies Program, Nyumburu is 
engaged in research projects, such as examining the sources of black creativity 
and historical contributions, and the artist's conception of his or her role in the life 
of the community. 

In addition to these activities, Nyumburu Center serves as the host/sponsor 
of several student clubs and activities. 

For information concerning scheduled activities and events. Community 
Center, Main Dining Hall, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 
Phone: 454-5774. 

THE MINORITY ADVISEMENT PROGRAM (MAP) is an advisement program that 
features minority peer advisors who are trained to assist students in choosing a 
major, planning a career, applying to graduate or professional school, or just 
plowing through red tape. Referral to specific offices and agencies both on and 
off campus is a major responsibility of MAP staff. MAP staff are trained in a 
specially designed course developed and taught by OMSE personnel. For 
information concerning MAP, contact the OMSE office at 454-4901. 

Undergraduate Advisement Center 

Many University students choose to be "undecided" about choice of major. 
Some want more information about |0b opportunities before choosing; some may 
be considenng several possible ma|ors: some are trying out a vanety of courses: 
some really don't know what to choose. 

Whatever their reason for wanting to be "undecided", these students have an 
administrative home in the Undergraduate Advisement Center. From the center's 
staff of advisors they can obtain much of the assistance they'll need for career 
decision-making, academic planning, scheduling, course selection, and a variety 
of other sen/ices. 

Other Services 

Pre-Professlonal Advising: offering pre-professional advising programs in the 
Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Law, and Pre-Allied-Health areas. 



Trouble Shooting: trouble shooting for individual students who are having 
difficulty with administrative procedural problems, such as transfer-credit evalua- 
tion, schedule revisions, changing Divisions/Colleges/Departments, errors in 
office records, etc. 

Policy Interpretation: keeping advisors informed about new academic policies 
and helping to interpret existing policies and practices This service is available to 
individual students when they come to see us. 

Information, maintaining a central file of information about academic programs 
and requirements on the College Park Campus. 

Coordinated Problem-Solving: coordinating the campus-wide system of advis- 
ing, including helping individual students with specific advising problems. 

Credit-By-Exam: administering the campus-wide program of credit-by-examina- 
tion. 

Academic Advising 

Advising is an essential part of an undergraduate's educational experiences 
at the University of Maryland. From orientation to graduation, it can provide the 
kind of concerned assistance that helps students interpret, often enrich, their 
perceptions of "being in college." With its emphasis on decision-making, 
planning, constructive action, effective advising highlights the connections 
between coursework and career, between learning and doing, between accepting 
advice and accepting responsibility. 

Advantages for Students— As an active and regular participant in existing 
advising programs, any student can reasonably expect— 

(1) to better understand his/her purposes for attending the University; 

(2) to develop insights about personal behavior which promotes improved 
adjustment to the campus setting; 

(3) to increase his/her awareness of academic programs and course offenngs 
at College Park; 

(4) to more frequently explore opportunities outside the classroom for intellectu- 
al and cultural development; 

(5) to acquire some decision-making skills that can accelerate academic— and 
career-planning; 

(6) to more realistically evaluate his/her academic progress and its relationship 
to successful planning. 

Required Advising— For most students, advising is not required. This allows 
individual students to decide, on the basis of personal circumstances and needs, 
whether or not to see an advisor. Certain categories of students, however, must 
obtain advising assistance: 

Students on Academic Probation— Each student placed on academic proba- 
tion will receive, at the end of the semester for which the probationary status is 
imposed a statement urging him/her to meet with an advisor as quickly as ' 
possible. The Office of the Registrar will have primary, but not exclusive 
responsibility for issuing these statements. 

When a follow-up meeting does occur, the student's advisor will record this 
fact in the student's official file within the division or college. Should the same 
student subsequently be dismissed from the University, the fact of his/her 
meeting will be considered a positive factor in reinstatement procedures. 

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

Students Who Withdraw— Given circumstances deemed appropriate by the 
Office of Withdrawal and Reenrollment, certain students applying for reinstate- 
ment following withdrawal may be required to meet with an advisor as a condition 
of their reinstatement. When this occurs, the fact of the meeting must be 
acknowledged/recorded by an advisor before registration can be completed. The 
intent is to require advising of those students who have a record of consecutive 
withdrawals, withdrawal dunng a semester following probation, and vanous other 
reasons for similar concern 

Students Nearing Senior Status— After a student has earned between seventy 
and eighty credits toward a baccalaureate degree, that same student shall be 
urged in wnting to meet with an advisor. This meeting is for the express purpose 
of reviewing the student's progress toward the degree and, at a minimum, 
requires the advisor to detail, in wnting, all coursework yet to be completed in 
fulfillment of the degree requirements. 

Each division, college, and department will have available one or more 
advisors to meet with these students at the appropnate times. 

Finding an Advisor— Undergraduate students at the College Park Campus are 
encouraged to use the many advisement opportunities that are available to them. 
At all academic levels — divisional, college, and departmental— at least one 



34 Office of Academic Affairs 



person had been designated to coordinate advising. A list of these persons, 
providing name, room number, and telephone extension is published each 
semester in the Schedule of Classes. Students who are unable to locate an 
advisor or who have questions about campus advising programs should visit or 
call the Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 3151, Undergraduate Library, 
454-2733 or 454-3040.

Honors Programs 

A number of unusual opportunities are available to energetic, academically 
talented students through the establishment of Honors Programs. The General 
Honors Program is available to qualified students throughout the campus. In 
addition there are Department Honors Programs in 29 academic departments. 

General Honors is intended to allow the students to pursue their general 
education at a challenging, demanding level. Students can engage, with others of 
Similar ability and varied interests, in a program whose emphasis is on 
interdisciplinary and educationally broadening activity. These studies complement 
the students' specialized work in whatever field. Departmental Honors Programs 
offer students the opportunity to pursue more deeply their studies in their chosen 
fields of concentration. 

Both programs offer challenging academic experiences characterized by 
small classes, active student participation, and an Honors faculty that encour- 
ages dialogue. Individually guided research, field experience and independent 
study are important aspects of Honors work. 

lilany students enter the General Honors Program as freshmen. They are 
selected on the basis of high school records, standardized test scores, personal 
achievements, and other evidences of ability and motivation. Undergraduates 
already on campus, majoring in any department, college, or division, and transfer 
students, are also encouraged to apply for admission. Departmental Honors 
Programs usually begin in the junior year, though some start earlier. 

Students who successfully complete the Honors curriculum graduate with a 
citation in General or Departmental Honors, or both. For information about 
Departmental Programs, students should contact the department; for information 
about the General Honors Program write to Dr. John Howarth, Director, Honors 
Program, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Special Opportunities 

Advanced Placement. Students entering the University from secondary school 
may obtain advanced placement and college credit on the basis of performance 
on the College Board Advanced Placement examinations. These examinations 
are normally given to eligible high school seniors during the May preceding 
matriculation in college. 

For achievement of a score of five or four on a given examination, the student 
will be granted Advanced Placement and the credit equivalent of two semester 
courses in that field; for achievement of a score of three. Advanced Placement 
and the credit equivalent of either one or two semester courses, depending upon 
the field of the examination, will be granted. 

Credit earned by Advanced Placement may be used to meet major, minor, 
elective or General University Requirements, The University accepts the Ad- 



Awards and Prizes 35 



vanced Placement Examinations In the following areas: biology, chemistry, 
English, French, German, history, Latin, mathematics, physics and Spanish. 
Questions about the program may be addressed to the Director of Admis- 
sions and Registrations, or the Dean for Undergraduate Studies. For detailed 
information about examinations and procedures in taking them, write to Director 
of Advanced Placement Program, College Entrance Examination Board, 475 
Riverside Drive, New York, New York 10027. 

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate. A senior at the University of Maryland 
who is within seven hours of completing the requirements for the undergraduate 
degree may, with the approval of his or her provost or dean, the chairman of the 
department concerned, and the Graduate School, register in the undergraduate 
division for graduate courses, which may later be counted for graduate credit 
toward an advanced degree at this University, The total of undergraduate and 
graduate courses must not exceed fifteen credits for the semester. Excess 
credits in the senior year cannot be used for graduate credit unless proper pre- 
arrangemenl is made. Seniors who wish to take advantage of this opportunity 
must formally apply for admission to the Graduate School.

Center for Philosophy and Public Policy 

Director: Peter G. Brown 



Additional Campus Programs 41 



Research Associates: Douglas Maclean, Henry Shue, Paul Vernier 

The Center for Philosophy and Public Policy conducts an interdisciplinary 
program which engages in research and curnculum development with the 
purpose of investigating conceptual and ethical aspects of public policy formula- 
tion and depate. Most research efforts— chosen from topics expected to be a 
focus of putjiic policy debate during the next decade— are-coordinaled by Center 
research staff and conducted cooperatively by working groups composed of 
philosophers, policy-makers, analysts, practitioners, and Center staff- In its 
research efforts the Center seeks to create an improved understanding of the 
normative pnnciples which are basic to an assessment of public policies. 

Research areas which have been or currently are under consideration 
include: (1) food policy and the responsibility of the U.S. to the world food 
situation; (2) human rights and foreign policy; (3) conflicting obligations in 
personal ethics and public service; (4) moral and conceptual issues in welfare 
reform; (5) ethical dilemmas facing lawyers; (6) the application of principles of 
justice to intergenerational issues such as energy policy; and (7) the ethical 
significance of national boundanes and shared nationality. 

Research products are made available through commercial publication, 
distnbution of model courses, workshops and the distribution of working papers. 

The Center's curnculum development seeks to bring philosophical issues 
before future policy-makers and citizens. To this end courses dealing with 
contemporary normative issues in the national and international arena are offered 
through the Departments of Philosophy and of Government and Politics and 
other departments whose disciplines are relevant to the specific course being 
taught. Courses which have been offered include: Hunger and Affluence, Human 
Rights and Foreign Policy, Philosophical Issues in Public Policy, Ethics and 
Welfare, Professional Responsibility, and Business Ethics and Social Responsi- 
bility. 

The Center is sponsored jointly by the Divisions of Arts and Humanities and of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences. 

Women's Studies Program 

Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary academic program in the Divisions of 
Arts and Humanities and Behavioral and Social Sciences. Its goal is to promote 
research on women and sex roles and to facilitate the introduction of research 
findings on women into all relevant university courses. To this end, the program 
encourages and assists departments in developing courses about women. It also 
provides integrative courses taught by program faculty, designed to tie together 
the diverse matenals available in the approximately thirty courses offered in such 
fields as psychology, economics, Afro-American studies, health, history, English, 
and the foreign languages. 
These courses include the following: 

WMST 200: Women and Contemporary Society 
WMST 298: Selected Topics in Women's Studies 
WMST 386 and 387: Field Work and Field Work Analysis 
WMST 400: Theones of Feminism 
WMST 498: Special Topics in Women's Studies 

The Women's Studies Certificate Program 

The Women's Studies Certificate Program consists of an integrated, interdis- 
ciplinary package of courses on women and sex roles which is designed to 
supplement a student's major. Any student in good standing in a division of the 
university may enroll in the certificate program by declaring her/his intention to 
the Director of Women's Studies. It is suggested that students meet with the 
Director in order to plan individual programs. 

To qualify for a certificate in Women's Studies a student will be required to 
earn twenty-one credits in Women's Studies courses. Each student must obtain a 
grade of C or better in each course that is to be counted toward the certificate. 
Each student is required to take either: 

WMST 200: Women in Contemporary Society or 

WMST 400: Theories of Feminism 

and at least one course from three of the following four categones: 

1. ECON 474: Economic Problems of Women

in other courses on women. 

The remaining three courses may be chosen from the above list or from the 
other courses offered within the Women's Studies Program. At least one of the 



courses must be an upper division course (300-400 level). No more than nine 
credits from any one department may be applied toward the certificate, and no 
more than twelve credits may be transferred from other universities and then only 
with the consent of the Director.

Bachelor of General Studies 

The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) program permits a student to obtain 
an education in a broad range of disciplines without adhering to a previously 
defined curriculum with specialization in one department or division. While it 
allows the student to design concentrations of up to 30 credits in a single 
department, its purpose is to encourage breadth of education. 

General Studies students must fulfill the campus English composition 
requirements. 

While early BGS graduates have not experienced unusual problems with 
further education and employment, the individual student's experience may well 
depend on the quality of program which he/she designs within the parameters of 
the BGS requirements. 

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 cumulative grade 
point average of at least 2.0. 

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 
or higher); a 2.0 cumulative grade point 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. A student who wishes to earn a second baccalaureate must satisfy 
all University requirements for the earning of two degrees. 

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. Additional information may be obtained from Dr. Judith Sorum in 
the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies. (Telephone: 
454-2350/31.) 

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 curnculum 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 by the Individual Studies 
Faculty Committee prior to the final thirty semester hours of the proposed 
curriculum. 

Requirements 

Students in the Individual Studies Program must: 

1 . Complete at least 1 20 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% or more informal learning expenences (directed 
studies, internship, research, etc.) the student must complete a three credit 
Bachelor's paper (IVSP 320). The Bachelor's paper is strongly recom- 
mended for all IVSP students. 

Admission to the piogram must be officially approved by the Individual 
Studies Review Committee, made up of three faculty members, prior to the final 
thirty semester hours of the proposed curriculum. 

General Honors Program 

Director: John L. Howarth 

The General Honors Program is designed to allow energetic, academically 
talented students to pursue their general education at a challenging, demanding 
level. Students can engage, with others of similar ability and vaned interests, in a 
program whose emphasis is on interdisciplinary and educationally broadening 
activity. 



42 Additional Campus Programs 

Students may apply for admission as freshmen. High school students 
ordinarily apply at the same time as they apply lor admission to the University, 
although a separate application form is required for General Honors. Undergradu- 
ates already on campus, majoring in any department, college or division, and 
transfer students with distinguished records from other institutions (especially if 
they come from other Honors Programs) are also encouraged to apply. Selection 
is made on the basis of academic records, recommendations, standardized test 
scores, personal achievement, and other evidences of motivation and ability. 

Members of the Program may enroll in a variety of kinds of courses: special 
introductory colloqula. special honors sections of basic courses in many 
departments, upper division General Honors seminars, independent study and 
field experience. Successful General Honors students graduate vi^ith a citation in 
General Honors which is recorded on their transcnpts and diplomas. There is an 
extensive extra-curricular program of activities, and student participation in 
decision-making and administration is an important aspect of the program. The 
General Honors Program is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council 
and of the Northeast Regional Honors Council. Students and faculty participate 
regularly in the activities of these organizations. The Program participates in a 
program of student exchanges with Honors Programs in other institutions. 

The College Park Campus also operates 29 Departmental Honors Programs 
designed to give students the opportunity to pursue more deeply their studies in 
their chosen fields of concentration. These programs usually begin in the junior 
year, though a few (botany, English, history, mathematics, psychology) may start 
earlier. Some students who enter the General Honors Program as freshmen 
transfer to their departmental programs in their sophomore or junior years. For 
information, see the descnptions under the various departmental entries in this 
catalog, or contact the department. 

For application forms and information about the General Honors Program, 
write to Dr. John Howarth, Director, Honors Program, University of Maryland, 
College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Pre-Professional Programs 

These curricula are designed to provide the necessary academic foundation 
required for entrance into professional schools. Some require two or three years 
of pre-professlonal study tiefore transfer to professional school. Others, such as 
the curricula for medicine and dentistry, normally require completion of a 
bachelor's degree. 

Successful completion of a pre-professional program does not guarantee 
admission to a professional school. Each school has its own admissions 
requirements and cnteha, which may include grade-point average in undergradu- 
ate courses, scores in aptitude tests (Medical College Admission Test, Law 
Admission test, Dental Aptitude Test, Allied Health Professionas Admission Test, 
etc.), a personal interview, or faculty evaluations. For specific admissions 
requirements, the student is urged to study the catalog of the professional school. 

Because of the competitive nature of professional school admissions, pre- 
professional students should consider applying to more than one school and 
should also give some thought to alternate careers. The degree to which this is 
necessary vanes with the program in which one is enrolled. It usually is helpful to 
discuss this with the pre-professional advisor. 

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 at Baltimore — Dentistry, Law and Medicine— have ar- 
rangements whereby a student who meets certain requirements may be 
accepted for professional school after three years (90 academic hours). For 
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 Dental School of the University of Maryland, located in Baltimore 
(UMAB), offers a baccalaureate degree program in dental hygiene, as well as a 
post-certificate program for registered dental hygienists who have completed a 
two-year accredited dental hygiene program and are interested in completing the 
requirements for a baccalaureate degree. Completion of a two-year pre- 
professional curriculum at any University of Maryland campus except UMAB or at 
another accredited institution is required for eligibility to apply for admission as a 
junior in the Dental School at UfvlAB. 

For registered dental hygienists, completion of a two-year accredited dental 
hygiene program, completion of all required pre-professional courses, and a 
minimum of one year of clinical experience as a dental hygienist are required for 
eligibility to apply for admission to the Dental School at UMAB. 

Enrollment as a predental hygiene student or a registered dental hygienist to 
complete preprofessional curriculum requirements at any campus does not 
guarantee admission to the dental hygiene program on the Baltimore campus. 
Enrollment in both programs is limited. 

The educational objective of the Dental Hygiene program is to provide the 
baccalaureate graduate with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will allow 
them to adapt and function in positions of responsibility within a variety of health 
care settings or educational institutions. 



The first two years, constituting the pre-professional curriculum, include 
general educational requirements of the University of Maryland, dental hygiene 
education accreditation requirements and elective lower division courses. A 
suggested sequence for required courses in the pre-professional segment of the 
curriculum follows;

at the College Park Campus. 

Application and Admission. Students are considered for admission to the 
University of Maryland Dental School without regard for race, color, creed or sex. 
It is the objective of the school to enroll qualified students with diversified 
backgrounds in order to make the educational experience more meaningful for 
each individual as well as to provide dental health practitioners to all segments of 
the community. Men as well as women, and members of ethnic minority groups 
are encouraged to apply for admission to the dental hygiene program. 

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

Pre-dental hygiene students who will have completed three semesters of the pre- 
professional curriculum should request an application dunng the third semester 
from the Director of Admissions and Registrations, Room 1 32, Howard Hall, 660

Pre-Dentistry 

The pre-dental program is based upon the requirements and recommenda- 
tions 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 Spnng of the 
junior year. 

Three-Year Arts-Dentistry Program. Students whose performance during the 
first two years is exceptional may seek admission to the University of Maryland 
School of Dentistry at the end of their third year. By the end of the third year the 
student must have earned 90 academic credits, the last 30 of which must have 
been earned at the University of Maryland at College Park. No undergraduate 
major is required for this program; the work of the first year in the School of 
Dentistry is considered as the major. Within the 90 credits the student must have 
completed all the requirements listed below.

Students accepted in the combined Arts-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. The courses of the 
first year of Dental School constitute the major; the College Park courses listed 
above constitute the supporting area. 

Four-Year Program. No specific major is required for favorable consideration by 
a dental school admission committee. By intelligent planning starting in the 
freshman or sophomore year, the student can meet the requirements for the B.S. 
or B.A, degree in most mapr programs and can include in his or her course work 
courses specifically prescribed by dental schools of choice. The courses listed in 
A through E above for the three-year Arts-Dentistry program will satisfy the 
minimum requirements of most dental schools and are strongly recommended. 
The four-year student's program must also include courses required to satisfy 
major, supporting area, college and division requirements. The student is urged to 
work closely with pre-dental and major advisors in this planning. 

Pre-Forestiy 

Pre-Forestry students are advised in the Department of Horticulture section. 
See page 52 for information about this program. 

Pre-Law 

Although some law schools will consider only applicants with a B.A. or B.S. 
degree, others will accept applicants who have successfully completed a three- 
year program of academic work. Most law schools do not prescribe specific 
courses which a student must present for admission, but do require that the 
student follow one of the standard programs offered by the undergraduate 
college. Many law schools require that the applicant take the Law School 
Admission Test, 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 vertually all cases must have a considerably 
higher average. 

Students with exceptionaf 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 

A baccalaureate degree in Medical Technology is offered through the Medical 
Technology Program of the University of Maryland Medical School, which is 
located in Baltimore (UMAB). It usually takes four years to complete the required 
credits, which are divided into a pre-professional and a professional division. 
Completion of pre-professional courses at a University of Maryland campus or at 
another accredited institution is required prior to transfer to the Medical 
Technology Program at UMAB. (NOTE: There may be a change in the number of 
pre-professional versus professional years in this program, although the total 
number of years will remain the same. Please contact the advisor for details.) 

Application and Admission. Applicants for the pre-medical technology curricu- 
lum at College Park must meet all admission requirements of that campus. At 
least three years of both college preparatory mathematics and science, including 
chemistry and physics, are strongly recommended. 

Students are accepted into the upper division of the Medical Technology 
Program at UMAB on a competitive basis. Successful completion of pre- 
professional courses does not guarantee admission. Applicants must submit an 
application for admission in the fall of the year prior to enrollment. The Allied 
Health Professions Admission Test is required.

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 Medical School upon recommendation by the Dean, 
School of Medicine and approval by the College Park Campus, the degree to be 
awarded in August following the first year of Medical School. The courses of the 
first year of Medical School constitute the major; the College Park courses listed 
above constitute the supporting area. 

Four- Year Program. No specific major is required for favorable consideration by 
a medical school admission committee. By intelligent planning starting in the 
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 or her course work 



courses specifically prescribed by medical schools o( choice The courses listed 
in A through E above for the three-year Arls-Medicine program will satisfy the 
minimum requirements of most medical schools and are strongly recommended. 
The four-year student's program must also include courses required to satisfy 
major, supporting area, college and division requirements. The student is urged to 
work closely with pre-medical and major advisors in this planning. 

Pre-Nursing 

The School of Nursing, located in Baltimore (UMAB), offers a four-year 
program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. The first two years 
of pre-professional courses may be taken at any University of Maryland campus 
except UMAB, or any other accredited college or university, while the final two 
years of upper division work are offered only at the School of Nursing at 
Baltimore. Although admission to the upper division is not guaranteed, a large 
proportion of College Park students who complete pre-professional requirements 
are accepted. 

In addition to the aforementioned generic program, an "R.N. program" for 
registered nurses who wish to earn a B.S. provides the opportunity through 
challenge exams to validate and receive credit for knowledge already acquired. 
R.N. students complete the same pre-professional curriculum required of all 
lower division students. Then, after successfully earning credit through challenge 
exams in nursing, these students follow a senior year curriculum which provides 
the framework for content organization, as well as the implementation and 
evaluation of nursing care beyond their initial preparation in nursing. 

Application and Admission. Applicants lor pre-nursing at College Park must 
meet admission requirements of that cartnpus. High school students should enroll 
in a college preparatory curriculum including biology, chemistry and 3 units of 
college preparatory mathematics. 

Applicants to the upper division at UMAB are encouraged to apply in fall of 
the sophomore year, and applications received before February 1 will receive 
priority. The Allied Health Professions Admission Test (AHPAT) may be required 
(not for R.N. students) and should be taken in fall of the sophomore year. 
Academic performance in pre-professional courses Is an important factor in 
selection.

Pre-Optomeiry 

Requirements for admission to schools and colleges of optometry vary, but In 
all schools emphasis is placed on mathematics (MATH 140, 141; or MATH 110, 
111 with MATH 220, 221 also strongly recommended), chemistry (CHEM 103, 
140, with CHEM 201, 202, 203, 204 also strongly recommended), physics (PHYS 
121, 122 or 141, 142), and biology (ZOOL 101, 293). Most schools also require 
additional courses in such areas as English, psychology, social sciences, 
philosophy, foreign languages, and literature. A minimum of two years of pre- 
optometry studies is required for admission to accredited schools, but at present 
better than 50% of successful applicants hold a bachelor's or higher degree. 
Students who contemplate admission to optometry schools may major in any 
program that the University offers, but would be well-advised to write to the 
optometry schools of their choice for specific course requirements for admission. 
Students who seek further information should consult the pre-professional 
advisor in the Office of Undergraduate Studies.

offered only in the Department of Physical Therapy, which is located in Baltimore 
(UMAB). There is a required summer course at UMAB between the sophomore 
and junior years. Admission to the pre-professional program at College Park does 
not guarantee admission to the upper division at UMAB. 

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, musculoskeletal, sensory motor, and related cardio-vascular and 
respiratory functions. 

On the basis of test findings a treatment program is planned and imple- 
mented 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 dunng the treatment and convalescent period. 

Most physical therapists are employed in hospital clinics, rehabilitation 
centers, private practice, schools for handicapped children and nursing homes.

College of Agriculture 



The College of Agriculture offers educational programs with a broad cultural 
and scientific base. Students are prepared for careers in agriculturally related 
sciences, technology and business. 

The application of knowledge to the solution of some of man's most critical 
problems concerning adequate amounts and quality of food and the quality of the 
environment in which he lives are important missions of the College. 

This original College of the University of Maryland at College Park was 
chartered in 1856. The College of Agriculture has a continuous record of 
leadership in education since that date. It became the beneficiary of the Land- 
Grant Act of 1862. 

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

Advantage 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 are 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 govern- 
ment positions. 

Instruction in the basic biological and physical sciences, social sciences and 
engineering pnnciples is conducted in well-designed classrooms and laborator- 
ies. The application of basic pnnciples 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 
Agnculture by providing locations where important crops, animals and poultry can 
be grown and maintained under practical and research conditions. These farms 
add an important dimension to the courses offered in Agriculture. Data from these 
operations and from cooperating producers and processors of agncultural 
products are utilized by students interested in economics, teaching, engineenng, 
and conservation, as they relate to agriculture, as well as by those concerned 
with biology or management of agricultural crops and animals.

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 of 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 the 
flow 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 engineer- 
ing 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 bachelor's 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 pari 
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 govern- 
mental agencies. 

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

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-Veterlnary Medicine 

The pre-veterinary medicine program is based upon the requirements 
established by the colleges of Veterinary Medicine where students who are 
residents of filaryland 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 two spaces a year in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of 
Georgia, up to seven spaces a year at Tuskegee Institute and up to fifteen 
spaces a year at the University of Florida are reserved for qualified Maryland 
residents who may be offered admission by the respective institutions. 

The University of Maryland also has an agreement with The Ohio State 
University under which a maximum of six Maryland residents may be offered 
admission each year by the College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State 
University. 

The Colleges of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia, The Ohio 
State University, The University of Florida 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-professional 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

Departments, Programs and Curricula 

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. When 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 the Biology program is coordinated in a central 
advising office established by the Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences. 
Students must select an area of emphasis from among the following pro- 
grams—Marine Biology, Ecology, Physiology, Genetics or Biochemistry. Alterna- 
tively, the student may elect a General Biology program emphasizing work in 
Animal Science, Botany, Entomology, Microbiology or Zoology. In each case, 
advising will be by the department in which most of the work is to be taken. For 
orderly planning and advising, students are urged to determine their emphasis 
early and no later than the beginning of the junior year. Changes in emphasis 
normally cannot be made duhng the senior year without delaying graduation. 
Students in the program who are also attempting to meet the requirements of a 
pre-professional program should also seek advice from advisors for the respec- 
tive programs. Students in the program who wish to prepare for secondary school 
science teaching should contact the faculty 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 Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences. All courses in the basic and 
advanced program must be completed with a grade of C or better. An average of 
C is required in the supporting courses.

other Agricultural and Life Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 57 



courses in Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics, permit students to develop their 
interest 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. 

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 mapr. 
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.

Advisement. Although sample programs for Zoology majors interested in 
different fields may be obtained from the Zoology office, it is strongly recom- 
mended that all majors consult a Zoology Department advisor at least once every 
year. Majors planning to specialize in a particular field of Zoology should satisfy 
the area requirements during their freshman and sophomore years and take the 
400 level courses in their chosen specialty. Students desiring to enter graduate 
study in certain areas of Zoology should take Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, 
Advanced Statistics, Advanced Mathematics, and/or Philosophy of Science as a 
part of their undergraduate electives. Courses of interest to Zoology majors in 
Animal Science, Anthropology, Botany, Electrical Engineering, Entomology, 
Geography, Geology, Microbiology, and Psychology are listed in the Undergradu- 
ate Catalogue under the appropriate departments. 

Honors. The Department of Zoology also offers a special program for the 
exceptionally talented and promising student. The Honors Program emphasizes 
the scholarly approach to independent study. Information regarding this program 
may be obtained from the departmental office or from the chairman of the 
Zoology Honors Program.

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 techni- 
cians. 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 Expenment Station is to enhance all aspects of 
Maryland agnculture for the benefit of farmers, farm-related business 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. 
Biochemistry 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 othef. 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 and 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 Expenment Station was established in 1888 to 
comply with the Hatch Act of 1887 authorizing the establishment of an 
agricultural expenment station at the Land Grant Colleges. Actually, the charter of 
the Maryland Agncultural College in 1856 specifially authorized establishment of 



58 Division of Arts and Humanities 



a demonstration farm. The Station is supported by federal funds under tfie Hatch 
Act as amended, State appropriations, grants and contracts with State and 
federal agencies and by gifts or other support from individual and farm-related 
businesses and industry. 

Cooperative Extension Service 

As part of the total university, the Cooperative Extension Service takes the 
University of Maryland to the people of lylaryland, wherever they are. In its role as 
the "off-campus, non-credit, out-of-classroom" arm of the University, it extends 
the classroom to all parts of the State. With its uniquely effective educational 
delivery system, the Cooperative Extension Service helps people to help 
themselves, to define their problems, to evaluate reasonable alternatives, and to 
generate action to solve their problems. / 

The Cooperative Extension Service was authorized by Congress in 1914 
under the Smith-Lever Act and is funded by a three-way partnership. Support 
comes from the federal government for both 1862 and 1890 Land Grant 
institutions; and from the State and all 23 counties and Baltimore City in 
Maryland. 

General administrative offices of the Maryland Cooperative Extension Sen/ice 
are located at the College Park campus, and the administration of the 1890 
program (an integral part of the total MCES effort) is from offices at the Eastern 
Shore campus. 

Off-campus faculty, located in each county and in Baltimore City, are the 
"front lines" that deliver University resources in ways people can use them 
effectively. These field faculty rely on campus based Cooperative Extension 
specialists at both the College Park and Eastern Shore campuses to provide up- 
to-date, meaningful information and for aid in planning and conducting relevant 
educational programs. Many of the Cooperative Extension service faculty at the 
State level carry joint appointments with teaching and research, especially in the 
UMCP Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences. 

The Maryland Cooperative Extension Service is known for its programs in 
agriculture (including care of urban home grounds and gardens), home econom- 
ics, 4-H and youth, community and resource development, and marine science. 
Working through organized groups such as homemakers' clubs, farmers' groups 
and cooperatives, agribusiness firms, watermen's organizations, civic and social 
organizations, governmental agency personnel and elected officials, the Cooper- 
ative Extension Service multiplies its effects. It maintains a close working 
relationship with the Maryland Department of Agriculture and other State 
agencies and organizations. More than 22,000 volunteers in Maryland give 
generously of their time and energy. 

Time-tested, informal educational methods used are farm and home visits, 
phone and office conferences, and structured events such as meetings, 
institutes, workshops and training conferences. Carefully planned teaching 
events include tours, field days, and demonstrations. Indirect communications 
utilize circular letters, radio and television programs, newspaper articles and 
columns, articles in specialized publications, and exhibits to reach a statewide 
audience. 

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

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 in College Park and the agricultural 
programs of University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Through these 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 small and part time farmers, 
rural non-farm and urban family consumers as well as watermen and marine 
related businessmen. Both rural and urban families learn good food habits 
through the Expanded Food and Nutntion Education Program. 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. 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 programs also are 
used to reach the people of Maryland. 



Division of Arts and Humanities 

The chief administrative officer of the Division of Arts and Humanities is the 
Provost. The Provost's office staff serve as ombudsmen for students. The 
Provost's office is responsible for certifying that students have met all degree 
requirements. The staff evaluates transfer credits and coordinates the advising of 



newly admitted students. They maintain a liason with the various faculty advisors 
and academic programs within the Division. The office of the Provost is the place 
where students can go when they are lost or have any question about academic 
policies or procedures. The staff can adjust courses or schedules, providing it is 
ethically justifiable. The Provost's office can interpret existing regulations and, 
where it again feels ethically justified, can make certain exceptions. Students 
majoring in architecture and journalism will work directly with the staffs of the 
School of Architecture and the College of Journalism. During registration, 
students are usually seen on a first come, first served basis. On other occasions, 
if the problem is an emergency or is truly important, the provosts, deans, and 
advisors will stay as long as necessary. 

Each entering student in this Division will be assigned a faculty advisor who 
will help select courses and programs relevant to the student's academic 
objectives. As soon as a student selects a major field of study, a faculty advisor 
representing that area will be assigned. 

The Division of Arts and Humanities offers its students a variety of 
educational opportunities in addition to the traditional liberal education associated 
with humanistic studies, including possibilities for interdisciplinary and multi- 
disciplinary programs, independent and general study programs, and special 
intensive programs designed to meet individual student needs. Students electing 
to major in one of the creative or performing arts may choose between an 
academically oriented and a professionally ohented program. The Division also 
sen/es the needs of students from the other four academic divisions who wish to 
elect courses in the arts and humanities. 

The units in the Division are School of Architecture, College of Journalism, 
American Studies Program, Department of Art, Department of Classical Lan- 
guages and Literatures, Comparative Literature Program, Department of Commu- 
nication Arts and Theatre, Department of Dance, Department of English, 
Department of French and Italian Languages and Literatures, Department of 
Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, Department of History, Depart- 
ment of Music, Oriental and Hebrew Program, Department of Philosophy, and 
Department of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures. 

Entrance Requirements. The student who intends to pursue a program of study 
in the Division of Arts and Humanities should include the following subjects in a 
high school program: College Preparatory Mathematics (Algebra, Plane Geome- 
try), three or four units; Foreign Language, two units; History and Social Sciences, 
one or more units. Students lacking such high school preparation may still pursue 
an education in the Division by making up for such deficiencies through course 
work or independent study on the College Park Campus. Students wishing to 
major in one of the creative or performing arts are encouraged to seek training in 
the skills associated with such an area prior to matriculation. Students applying 
for entrance to these programs may be required to audition, present slides or a 
portfolio as a part of the admission requirements. Entrance requirements for the 
School of Architecture and the College of Journalism are given below. - 

Degrees. Students who satisfactorily complete Division requirements are award- 
ed the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Those who complete satisfactorily a special 
pre-professional program in the Department of Music are awarded the degree of 
Bachelor of Music. The School of Architecture awards the Bachelor of Architec- 
ture degree; the Bachelor of Science is awarded by the College of Journalism.

courses as specified by one of the academic units of the Division. No program of 
study shall require in excess of 60 semester hours. 

Students should consult the unit in which they will major for specific details. 

Each student chooses a field of concentration (major). He may mal^e 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 the choice of a major. After selecting a major, 
sophomore students and above will be advisetJ by faculty members in the major 
department. 

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

Certification of Higli 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 teacher's 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 Communica- 
tion Arts and Theatre. Departmental Honors Programs are administered by an 



Schools and Colleges of the Division of Arts and Humanities 59 



Honors Committee within each department. Admission to a Departmental Honors 
Program ordinanly occurs at the beginning of the first or second semester of the 
student's |unior year. As a rule, only students with a cumulative grade point 
average of at least 3.0 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 student's performance on the Honors Comprehensive Examina- 
tion and in meeting such other requirements as may be set by the Departmental 
Honors Committee, the faculty may vole to recommend the candidate for the 
appropriate degree with (departmental) honors or for the appropriate announce- 
ment in the commencement program and by citation on the student's 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 scholar- 
ship 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 breadtti 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 J<ept 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. 



Schools and Colleges of the Division of 
Arts and Humanities 

School of Architecture 

The School of Architecture offers a five-year undergraduate professional 
program leading to the degree Bachelor of Architecture and a four year degree 
program for a Bachelor of Science with a major in Urban Studies. Future plans 
include development of other environmental design programs at the graduate 
and undergraduate level. 

The School was awarded accreditation by the National Architectural Accredi- 
tation Board. June 1972, insuring that all graduates will be eligible for registration 
in all 50 states upon meeting experience requirements and passing the standard 
examination. The School is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of 
Architecture, and is assigned to that organization's northeastern region. 

The curriculum presents the basic requisite skills and the opportunity to 
develop the knowledge to begin professional work. The School's goal is to 
prepare students for professional service in helping solve the nation's environ- 
mental problems. 

Opportunities in Architecture. A growing population, together with expanding 
industrial development, has taxed the resources of cities 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. 

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. 

In architecture, these exchanges have influenced procedures, sen/ices and 
goals of the profession. 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. The role of the architect is 
expanding from a narrow concern with building design to a broad concern for 
developmental change. 

These facts illustrate both the great need for educated and trained profes- 
sionals, and the relevancy and excitement which characterize the profession 
today. Perhaps at no time in history has architecture posed as great a challenge 
or offersd so great a promise of personal fulfillment to its practitioners. 

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 sctiool 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

The College of Journalism at the University of Maryland stands at the 
doorstep of the nation's capital 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, 
including the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore News-American, the Washington Post, 
the Washington Star, 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 Amencan and foreign newspapers; also major networks and broadcasting 
news bureaus such as NBC, CBS, and ABC; many 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 Mouse, 
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 interna- 
tional agencies. 

The College has six primary objectives: 1 ) to provide professional develop- 
ment, including training in skills and techniques necessary for effective communi- 
cation; 2) to insure a liberal education for journalists and mass communicators; 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 a 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 maintains close liaison with student publications and communi- 
cations, including the student daily newspaper, yearbook, feature magazine, 
course guide, literary magazine, campus radio station, and campus television 
workshop. 

The College also tries to arrange 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 who 
qualify to take a concentrated semester of work in journalism during which time 
they produce a bi-weekly newspaper, the College Park Citizen Call. Advanced 
news reporting students have the opportunity to work on the Montgomery Journal 
and the Prince George's Journal covering real news assignments for publication. 
In addition, advanced and graduate students often use the Washington, D.C. 
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 are 
assigned and work with one faculty member as their advisor during their study at 
the University. 

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

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 major in 
Journalism. 

Accredited journalism programs follow a policy of requiring journalism majors 
to take about three-fourths of their coursework in areas other than journalism. 
The College of Journalism follows this nationwide policy. In practical terms, this 
means that a journalism major who wishes to offer more than 33 credits of 
journalism coursework toward the undergraduate degree must obtain the written 
recommendation of the faculty advisor and the approval of the Dean. 

Requirements for the Journalism Major. The requirements for graduation are 

given below:

The program offers an interdisciplinary focus on American culture in both 
historical and contemporary sources. Majoring in a broad curriculum — ranging 
from creative self-expression to environmental studies and the mass media— the 
undergraduate student may benefit from the perspectives of specialists in both 
the humanities and the social sciences in addition to a growing awareness of the 
multiple dimensions of American civilization. Each major selects an area of 
concentration in either Amencan literature or Amencan history. The program's 
faculty provide integrative courses, designed to offer a conceptual framework for 
the diversified materials of the traditional disciplines, in the student's junior and 
senior years. 

The undergraduate major requires 48 semester hours (24 hours minimum at 
the 300-400 level), consisting of courses in American Studies and various related 
disciplines. Courses applicable to American Studies are offered in the following 
departments, programs, schools and colleges: 

English, History, Government and Politics, Sociology, Afro-American Studies, 
Anthropology, Architecture, Art, Comparative Literature, Dramatic Arts, Econom- 
ics, Education, Geography, Journalism, Music. Philosophy, Psychology, Radio- 
Television-Film, and Speech Communication. 

No course with a grade lower than C may be counted towards the major. 

A major in Amencan Studies will normally follow this curriculum: 

1. AMST 201, 202 (Introduction to American Studies) in the freshman or 
sophomore year; AMST 426, 427 (Culture and the Arts in America) or AMST 
436, 437 (Readings in American Studies) in the junior year; and AMST 446, 
447 (Popular Culture in Amenca) in the senior year. 

2. Twelve hours of either American literature or history.

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 cumculum 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: Chin ■ 
Assistant Professors: Adkins, Liang 
Lecturer: Loh 

The program offers two series of courses— the language series and the 
content series. Ttie 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. A skills oriented course in interpretation and translation (Chinese- 
English and English-Chinese) is offered for intermediate and advanced students. 

The content series contains courses in Chinese 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 matenals 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). This course is taught 
by a team of instructors who employ an audio-lingual and communication- 
oriented approach. 

Presently the program offers a minor in Chinese. It consists of 1 8 credit hours 
of which 6 must be in Chinese Linguistics.

The departmental curricula lead to the Bachelor of Arts degree and permit the 
student to develop a program with emphasis in one of the three areas of the 
department: (1) Speech Communication (political communication, organizational 
communication, urban communication, educational communication, and interper- 
sonal communication): (2) Dramatic art (educational theatre, acting, directing, 
producing, theater history, and technical theater): (3) Radio-television-film (broad- 
casting and film theory, production, history, criticism, and research in a full 
spectrum program). In cooperation with the Department of Secondary Education, 
the department provides an opportunity for teacher certification in the speech

The curriculum is designed to provide: (1) a liberal education through special 
study of the arts and sciences of human communication: (2) preparation for 
numerous opportunities in business, government, media and related industries, 
and education.

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the dance 
program offers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a foundation for 
the dance professions. By developing an increasing awareness of the physical, 
emotional and intellectual aspects of movement in general, the student eventual- 
ly is able to integrate his own particular mind-body consciousness into a more 
meaningful whole. To facilitate the acquisition of new movement skills, as well as 
creative and scholarly insights in dance, the curriculum provides a structured 
breadth experience at the lower division level. At the upper division level the 
student may either involve himself in various general university electives, or he 
may concentrate his energies in a particular area of emphasis in dance. Although 
an area of emphasis is not mandatory, many third and fourth year students are 
interested in studying a singular aspect of dance in depth, such as performance, 
choreography, production/management, education or general studies (encom- 
passing dance history, literature and criticism). Students selecting the education 
emphasis may obtain State of fularyland teacher certification. Students desiring a 
performance emphasis are required to participate in a screening audition at the 
conclusion of their sophomore year. 

The dance faculty is composed of a number of distinguished teachers, 
choreographers and performers, each one a specialist in his or her own field. 
Visiting artists, throughout the year and during the summer, make additional 
contributions to the program. There are several performance and choreographic 
opportunities for all dance students, ranging from informal workshops to fully 
mounted concerts both on and off campus. More advanced students may have 
the opportunity of working with Ivlaryland Dance Theater, which is in residence in 
the Department. Supported in part by the fvlaryland Arts Council, and the Division 
of Arts and Humanities at the University, fi^aryland Dance Theater is a member of 
the Dance Touring program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. 
Company auditions are held each year in the Spring. 

ti^ajor course requirements total 48 semester hours in dance and 6 semester 
hours in non-department supporting areas. Of these, a minimum of 15 semester 
hours must be taken in dance at the upper division level. Students who major in 
dance may not use DANC courses for more than 60% (72 credits) of their 120 
credit requirement for graduation. The specific dance courses required for the 
B.A. degree are DANC 102(2), 109(2), 138(2), 165(3), 200(3), 208(3), 210(3), 
308(3), 471(3), 482(3), or 483(3), 484(3), modern technique (12), ballet (4), and 
jazz (2). The level of technique classes will be determined by placement 
auditions. Six credits in supporting courses are selected with the prior approval of 
a faculty advisor. Students desiring State of Ivlaryland teacher certification should 
refer to the Dance Education curriculum listed under the College of Education for 
additional requirements. Dance Education majors may obtain a Bachelor of Arts 
degree from the Division of Arts and Humanities or a Bachelor of Science degree 
from the Division of Human and Comimunity Resources. No grade less than "C" 
is accepted in courses required of all dance students for the major. 

New, re-entering and transfer students are expected to contact the depart- 
ment following admission to the University for instructions regarding advising, 
class placement auditions and registration procedures. The department strongly 
recommends that new dance majors enter only in the fall semester of the 
academic year. Although entrance auditions are not required, some previous 
dance experience is highly desirable. Further information may be obtained from 
the Dance Department Student Handbook.

General Two types of undergraduate majors are offered in German; one for the 
general student or the future teacher, and the other for those interested in a 
rounded study of a foreign area for the purpose of understanding another nation 
through its literature, history, architecture, and other aspects. Both of these 
majors confer the B.A. degree. The department also offers M.A. and Ph.D. 
degrees in German language and literature. 

An undergraduate major in either category consists of a total of 30 hours in 
German, 33 in Russian, with a C average, beyond the basic language require- 
ment. A ftiixed concentration in Comparative Literature is also possible. 

In selecting minor or elective subjects, students majoring in German oi 
Russian, particularly those who plan to do graduate work, should give special 
consideration to courses in foreign languages, philosophy, history, English 
linguistics and Russian area. 

Language and Literature Major: 

German. Specific minimum requirements in the program are: two courses in 
advanced language (301-302); two semesters of tfie survey of literature courses 
(321-322); six literature courses on the 400 level, two of which may be taken in 
comparative literature. These literature courses may be replaced by other 
departmental offerings on the 400 level with the permission of the chairman 
and/or advisor. Taking honors courses as substitute for the 400 level courses 
requires special permission from the chairman of the department and in no case 
may more than two honors courses be selected for this purpose. 

Russian. The specific minimum requirements for the major are: 

Four courses in advanced language, one from each set: RUSS 201-202 
(Conversation and Composition), 301-302 (Review Grammar and

Language and Literature Major. Courses: SPAN 201, 221, 301-302, 311 or 
312, 321-322 or 323-324, 425-426 or 446-447, plus four 400-level courses or 
pro-seminars in Spanish, Spanish American, or Luso-Braziiian literature, for a 
total of 39 credits. Nine credits of supporting courses, six of which must be on the 
300 or 400 level in a single area other than Spanish, for a combined total of 48 
credits. Suggested areas: art, comparative literature, government and politics, 
history, philosophy, and Portugese. All supporting courses should be germane to 
the field of specialization. 

Foreign Area Major. Courses: SPAN 201, 301-302, 311 or 312, 315 or 316, 
321-322 or 323-324, 425-426 or 446-447, plus three 400-level courses in 
Spanish, Spanish American, or Luso-Brazilian literature, for a total of 36 credits. 
Twelve credits of supporting courses, six of which must be on the 300 or 400 
level in a single area other than Spanish, for a combined total of 48 credits. 
Suggested areas: anthropology, economics, geography, government and politics, 
history, Portugese, and sociology. All supporting courses should be germane to 
the field of specialization. 

Honors in Spanish. A student whose major is Spanish and who, at the time of 
application, has a general academic average of 3.0 and 3.5 in his major field may 
apply to the Chairman of the Honors Committee for admission to the Honors 
Program of the department. Honors work normally begins the first semester of 
the junior year, but a qualified student may enter as early as the sophomore year 
or as late as the second semester of the junior year. Honors students are 
required to take two courses from those numbered 491, 492, 493, and the 
seminar numbered 496, as well as to meet other requirements for a major in 
Spanish. There will be a final comprehensive examination covering the honors 
reading list which must be taken by all graduating seniors who are candidate for 
honors. Admission of students to the Honors Program, their continuance in the 
program, and the final award of honors are the prerogative of the Departmental 
Honors Committee. 

Elementary Honors. SPAN 102H is limited to specially approved candidates 
who have passed SPAN 101 with high grades, and will allow them to enter 104H 
or 201. 

Lower Division Courses. The elementary and intermediate courses in Spanish 
and Portugese consist of three semesters of four credits each (101, 102, 104). 
The language requirement for the B.A. degree in the Division of Arts and 
Humanities is satisfied by passing 104 or equivalent. 

Spanish 101 may be taken for credit by those students who have had two or 
more years of Spanish in high school, provided they obtain the permission of the 
chairman of the Department. Students starting in SPAN 101 must follow the 
prescribed sequence of SPAN 101, 102, and 104. 

Transfer students with college credit have the option of continuing at the next 
level of study, taking a placement examination, or electing courses 103 and 104. 
If a transfer student takes course 103 for credit, he retains transfer credit only for 
the equivalent of course 101. A transfer student placing lower than his training 
warrants may ignore the placement but DOES SO AT HIS OWN RISK. If he takes 
104 for credit, he retains transfer credit for the equivalent of courses 101 and 
102. 

If a student has received a D in a course, advanced and completed the next 
higher course, he cannot go back and repeat the original course in which he 
received a D.

Division of Behaviorai and Social 
Sciences 

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 behaviorai 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 may choose to concentrate their studies in the 
traditional fields, or may be interested for focusing on interdisciplinary study. As 
part of the University's response to society's need for resolution of the ever more 
complex problems of modern civilization, it 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-ohented 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 (kilanagement, 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 Division's concern 
with conditions in society. 

The academic units in the Division are: The College of Business and 
Management, the Departments of Anthropology, Economics. Geography, Gov- 
ernment and Politics, Information Systems Management, Heahng and Speech 
Sciences, Sociology, Psychology, the Institutes of Cnminal Justice and Criminolo- 
gy, and Urban Studies; and the Programs in Afro-American Studies, and 
Linguistics. The Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the Division of 
Arts and Humanities also jointly supports the interdisciplinary Women's Studies 
Program. 

In addition to these departments, programs and institutes, the Division 
includes the following research and service units: the Blireau of Business and 
Economics Research, the Bureau of Governmental Research, the Division 
Computer Laboratory, the Maryland Technical Advisory Service, the Program in 
Industrial Relations and Labor Studies and the Center for Philosophy and Public 
Policy (also jointly sponsored by the Division of Arts and Humanities). 

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 Philoso- 
phy. 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. Each student must complete a minimum of 120 
hours of credit with no less than C. Courses must include the 30 hours specified 
by the General University Requirements and the specific major and supporting 
course requirements and the College of Business and Management or of the 
programs in the academic units offering baccalaureate degrees. 

Students who matnculated 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. 

General Information and Student Advisement. The BSOS Undergraduate 
Advising Office (Room 2115 Tydings Building) coordinates advising and main- 
tains student records for students not in the College of Business and Manage- 
ment. Divisional advisors are available to provide information concerning Univer- 
sity requirements and regulations, transfer credit evaluations and other general 
information about the University. 

General advisement in the College of Business and Management is available 
through the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Room 3136A, Tydings Hall. All 
freshmen and transfer students will be assigned divisional and departmental 
advisors to assist them in the selection of courses and the choice of a major (if 
the student has not declared a major). 

Honors. Departmental Honors Programs are offered in the Departments of 
Economics, Geography, Government and Politics, Psychology, and Sociology. 
Any student who has passed at least 12 hours of academic work in the 
preceding semester, without failure of any course and with an overall average 
grade of at least 3.5 will be placed on the Provost's List of Distinguished 
Students. 

Senior Residence Requirements. 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 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 obtains 
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. 



68 Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences 



A student must be enrolled in the division from which they plan to graduate when 
registering for the last 15 credits of his or her program.

The College of Business and Management is an accredited undergraduate 
and graduate collegiate school of business. This accreditation by the American 
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business recognizes the quality of programs 
and faculty in the College. The College recognizes the importance of education in 
business and management to economic, social, and professional development 
through profit and nonprofit organizations at the local, regional, and national 
levels. The faculty of the College have been selected from the leading doctoral 
programs in business. They are scholars, teachers, and professional leaders with 
a commitment to superior education in business and management. 

The College has faculty specializing in Accounting; Finance; Management 
Science and Statistics; Marketing; Organizational Behavior and Industrial Rela- 
tions; and Transportation, Business and Public Policy. 

Undergraduate Program. The undergraduate program recognizes the need for 
professional education in business and management based on a foundation in 
the liberal arts. Modern society comprises intricate business, economic, social, 
and government institutions requiring a large number of men and women trained 
to be effective and responsible managers. The ^College regards its program 
leading to the Bachelor of Science in business and management as one of the 
most important ways it serves this need. 

A student in business and management selects a concentration in one of 
several curricula: (1) Accounting; (2) Finance; (3) General Curriculum in Business 
and Management; (4) Management Science-Statistics; (5) Marketing; (6) Person- 
nel and Labor Relations; (7) Production Management and; (8) Transportation. For 
students interested in Law as a career there is a combined Business and Law 
Program. 

Students Interested in insurance, real estate, institutional management, or 
international business may plan with their advisor to elect courses to meet their 
specialized needs. 

At least 45 hours of the 120 semester hours of academic work required for 
graduation must be in business and management subjects. A minimum of 57 
hours of the required 120 hours must be in 300 or 400 level courses. In addition 
to the requirement of an overall average of C in academic subjects, an average of 
C in business and management subjects is required for graduation. Electives in 
the curricula of the college may be taken in any department of the University if the 
student has the necessary prerequisites. Business courses taken as electives 
may not be taken on a pass/fail basis by students of the College of Business and 
Management. 

Degrees. The University confers the following degrees on students successfully 
completing programs of study in the College; Bachelor of Science (B.S.); Master 
of Business Administration (M.B.A.); Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.). 
Each candidate for a degree must file in the Registrar's Office, prior to a date 
announced for each semester, a formal application for a degree. Information 
concerning admissions to the M.B.A. and D.B.A. programs is available from the 
college director of graduate studies. 

Academic Advisement. General advisement in the College of Business and 
Management is available in the Office of Undergraduate Studies in Tydings Hall. 
It is recommended that students visit this office each year to ensure that they are 
informed about current requirements and procedures. Student problems concern- 
ing advisement should be directed to the Director of Undergraduate Studies. 
Transfer students entenng the University can be advised during transfer 
orientation. Students wishing to major in the College of Business and Manage- 
ment can be advised during summer and spring orientations. 



Entrance Requirements. Effective with the Fall 1979 semester the College will 
no longer accept freshmen and sophomore students into the College. Entrance 
to the College will be on a competitive basis at the junior level effective Fall 1 981 . 
A minimum Grade Point Average of 2.3 with 56 hours completed will be required 
for admission to the College. In addition, a student entering at the junior level 
must have completed the College's freshmen and sophomore requirements in 
mathematics, accounting, statistics, economics, speech and English Composi- 
tion. 

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credit from Community Colleges. 

The College of Business and Management subscribes to the policy that a 
student's undergraduate program below the junior year should include no 
advanced, professional level courses. This policy is based on the conviction that 
the value derived from these advanced courses is 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 1 2 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.

Accounting. Accounting, in a limited sense, is the analysis, classification and 
recording of financial events and the reporting of the results of such events for an 
organization. In a broader sense, accounting consists of all financial devices for 
planning, controlling and appraising performance of an organization. In this 
broader sense, accounting includes among its many facets financial planning, 
budgeting, accounting systems, financial management controls, financial analysis 
of performance, financial reporting, internal and external auditing, and taxation of 
business. 

The accounting curriculum provides an educational foundation for careers in 
accounting and a foundation for future advancement in other management areas 
whether in private business organizations, government agencies, or public 
accounting firms. Students who select this curriculum will complete the freshman 
and sophomore requirements for all students in the College of Business and 
Management.

Since July 1, 1974, the educational requirement of the Maryland State Board 
of Accountancy has been a baccalaureate or higher degree with a major in 
accounting as defined by the Board, or with a non-accounting major supple- 
mented by what the Board determines to be substantially the equivalent of an 
accounting major. 

An accounting major shall be considered generally as constituting a minimum 
of (1) 30 semester hours in accounting subjects, which shall include (but shall not 
be limited to) courses in accounting principles, auditing, cost accounting and 
federal income tax; (2) 6 semester hours in commercial law; (3) 4 semester hours 
in principles of economics. 

A student planning to take the CPA examination in a state other than 
Maryland should determine the course requirements, if any, for that state and 
arrange his or her program accordingly. 

Finance. The finance curriculum is designed to familiarize the student with the 
institutions, theory and practice involved in the allocation of financial resources 
within the private sector, especially the firm. It is also designed to incorporate 
foundation study in such related disciplines as economics and the quantitative 
areas. 

The finance curriculum provides an educational foundation for careers 
involving financial analysis and management, investment analysis and portfolio 
management, investment banldng. insurance and risk management, banking, and 
international finance; it also provides a foundation for graduate study in business 
administration, quantitative areas, economics, and law.

Management Science-Statistics. In the management science-statistics curricu- 
lum, 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 methods for utilizing probability 
theory in decision-making processes. Important statistical activities ancillary to 
the decision-making process are the systematization of quantitative data and the 
measurement of variability. Some specialized areas wittiin the field of statistics 
are: sample surveys, forecasting, quality control, design of experiment, Bayesian 
decision processes, actuarial statistics, and data processing. Statistical meth- 
ods—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 as follows:

Management Science option. Management Science (operations research) is 
the application of scientific methods to decision problems, especially those 
involving the control of organized man-machine systems, to provide solutions 
which best serve the goals and objectives of the organization as a whole. 
Practitioners in this field are employed in industry and business, and federal, state 
and local governments. 

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 career. 

Course requirements for the junior-senior curriculum concentration in the

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 
student's 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 or the student's program 
plan. Each course counted for the above requirements must be passed with a 
grade of 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

Anthropology 

Associate Professor and Acting Chairman: Leone 

Professors: Gonzalez, Kerley and Williams 

Associate Professors: Anderson, Rosen 

Assistant Professors: Benjamin, Dessaint, Palkovich, and Stuart 

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. 

Anttiropology 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 
1 01 , 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 not be counted as a part of the 30 required semester 
hours for 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. 

ANTH 1 01 , and ANTH 1 02, or their equivalent, or permission of the instructor, 
are prerequisites to all other courses in Anthropology.

Business and Economic Research 

Professor and Director: Cumberland 
Professors: Cumberland, Harris 
Assistant Professor: Clotfelter 

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 
and applied research in the fields of regional, urban, public finance and 
environmental studies. Although the bureau's long-run research program is 
carried out largly 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 governments, 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.

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 
individual interests. The major totals 36 semester hours.

prerequisite to GEOG 310. GEOG 310 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 be taken concurrently with GEOG 310. 

The techniques requirement may be fulfilled by taking one of the following: 
GEOG 370— Cartography and Graphics Practicum, GEOG 372— Remote 
Sensing, GEOG 376— Quantitative Techniques in Geography and GEOG 
380— Focal Field Course. 

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: 

Urbart Geography and Regional Development— Proy'\(ies 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 interpreta- 
tion. For additional training students are advised to take supporting courses in art 
and civil engineering. 

Cultural Geography— 0\ interest to students particularly concerned with the 
geographic aspects of population, politics, and other social and cultural phenom- 
ena, and with historical geography. In addition to departmental course offerings 
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.

Industrial Relations and Labor Studies 

Acting Director: Weinstein 

The Program of Industnal Relations and Labor Studies was recently 
organized at UMCP and is concerned with two kinds of activity. The first is 
interdisciplinary research directed primarily toward the study of labor-manage- 
ment relations, wages and related problems, the labor market, comparative 
studies and manpower problems. The Program draws on the expertise and 
interests of faculty from the College of Business and Management, the School of 
Law and the Department of Economics, History, Psychology and Sociology. The 
second main activity consists of community and labor relations education 
projects sen/ing management, unions, the public and other groups interested in 
industrial relations and labor-related activities. These projects consist of public 
lectures, conferences, and symposia as well as non-credit courses. 

Information Systems Management 

Professor and Acting Chairman: Sibley 

Associate Professor: Courtright, Shreiderman 

Assistant Professors: Brodie, W.T. Hardgrave, Sayani, Thomas 

Lecturers: Chappell, Dougherty, Feigin, A.D. Hardgrave, Hudson (part-time), 

Jefferson (part-time), Pitelka, Prochazka (part-time), Sherron (part-time) 

The DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT is con- 
cerned with the development and management of Information Systems for the 
support of virtually every field of human enterprise. 

Because of the wide applicability of the field, the program is designed to 
provide a broad, sound education which includes subjects ranging from mathe- 
matics and computer science to operations research, statistics, accounting, and 
economics. Since information systems graduates are usually placed in positions 
of high visibility, basic communication skills are also required. 

In the student's major field, courses concentrate on the analysis, design, 
construction and management of information systems. This concentration 
includes computer-based systems, and higher-level information systems. Appli- 
cation methodology ranges from large central computers, to distributed comput- 
ers, to mini-i and micro-computers, and formalized manual systems. Students are 
also concerned with societal impacts of information systems— issues such as 
privacy, security, fraud, ethics, and monopolies in the computing industry. 

The proximity of large information centers provides students with opportuni- 
ties for stimulating, state-of-the-art projects, and potential for deeper involve- 
ments during the academic year or summer through experiential learning.

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 desihng to enter graduate study in certain areas of psychology are 
advised to take an additional laboratory course and/or 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;

Sociology is the study of social life and the social causes and consequence;, 
of human behavior. Sociology's subject matter ranges from the intimate family to 
the hostile mob, from chme to religion, from the divisions of race and social class 
to the shared beliefs of a common culture, from the sociology of work to the 
sociology of sport. In fact, few fields have such broad scope and relevance. 
Because sociology seems to offer something for everyone, it may seem 
surprising that its career potential is just beginning to be tapped. 

First, sociology forms a valuable background for those interested in other 
fields or majors. Courses in sociology can be used as preparation for careers in: 
Social Work, Law, Government and Private Research, IJrban Planning, Personnel 
Work and Human Resources Management. Secondly, the major in sociology 
offers: (1) a general education especially directed toward understanding the 
complexities of modern society and its social problems by using basic research 
and statistical skills; (2) a broad preparation for various types of professions, 
occupations, and services dealing with people; and (3) preparation of qualified 
students for graduate training in sociology. 

The student in Sociology must complete 47* hours of Departmental 
requirements, none of which may be taken pass/fail. Thirty-two* of tfiese hours 
are in sociology course work which must be completed with a minimum average 
of C; 14* hours are in required core courses and 18 hours are Sociology 
electives, of which 9 are required at the 400 level and an additional 3 are required 
at either the 300 or 400 level. Required core courses for all majors are SOCY 100 
(Intro.), SOCY 201 (Statistics), SOCY 203 (Theory), and SOCY 202 (Methods). 

SOCY 100 should be taken in the freshman or sophomore year followed by 
SOCY 203. After completion of the Math requirements SOCY 201 should be 
taken followed by SOCY 202. 

Three hours of Mathematics (Stat 1 00; Math 1 1 0, 1 1 1 , 1 1 5, 1 40, 220 or their 
equivalents) are required of majors and are a prerequisite for SOCY 201. 

The supporting course requirement for majors is 12 hours of a coherent 
series of courses from outside of the department which relate to the major 
substantive or research interests in Sociology. These courses need not come 
from the same department, but at least 6 hours must be from the Division of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences. The following are among those recommended 
by the Sociology Undergraduate Committee for majors: ANTH 102, CMSC 103, 
ECON 205, GVPT 100, 170, 260; HIST 224, PHIL 170, 250, 455; PSYC 100. 



Further information about suggested supporting courses can be obtained in the 
Undergraduate Office (Room 2108, Art/Sociology BIdg.). 
"47 hours are required because SOCY 201 and 202 are 4 hour courses. For 
transfer students or those with equivalent courses which are only 3 hour courses, 
exceptions to this 47 hour requirement may be made by the Coordinator of the 
Sociology Undergraduate Program.

Division of Human and Community 
Resources 

The Division of Human and Community Resources includes the faculties and 
programs of the College of Education, the College of Human Ecology, the 
College of Physical Education, Recreation and Health, and the College of Library 
and Information Services. The programs of the Division are essentially profes- 
sional. They are designed to prepare professionals interested in the quality of life 
of the individual and in the community factors which influence the interaction of 
people; those who are responsible for community health, recreation programs 
and activities; technical, public and school librarians, information scientists, and 
educational institutions. 

The Division supports the development of research in areas of concern to 
faculty members in all the Departments and Colleges, and research teams which 
may cross departmental and College lines. Also, the Division seeks to stimulate 
the development of interdisciplinary courses and programs and the extension of 
professional expertise to the University and community at large. 

Center on Aging 

The Center on Aging focuses its efforts on stimulating interest in aging within 
existing departments, colleges, and schools throughout the University through 
research and teaching. In addition, it has developed and maintains contact with 
students in the general field of gerontology and helps them to devise educational 
programs to meet their goals. The Center sponsors an ongoing colloquium series 
on aging and community training programs based primarily on psychosocial

College of Education 



The College of Education offers programs tor persons preparing for the 
following educational endeavors: 1) teaching in colleges, secondary schools, 
middle schools, elementary schools, kindergarten and nursery schools; 2) 
teaching in special education programs; 3) school libranans and resource 
specialists; 4) educational work in trades and industries; 5) pupil personhel, 
counselin^g and guidance services; 6) supervision and administration; 7) curricu- 
lum development; 8) rehabilitation programs; 9) evaluation and research. 

Because of the location of the University in a suburb of the nation's capital, 
unusual facilities for the study of education are available to its students and 
faculty. The Library of Congress, the library of the United States Office of 
Education, and special libraries of 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. 

All bachelor-degree teacher-preparation programs are accredited by both the 
National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and by the National 
Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification. Accredita- 
tion provides for reciprocal certification with 35-40 other states who recognize 
national accreditation. The graduate degree programs preparing school service 
personnel (elementary and secondary school principals, general school adminis- 
trators, supervisors, curnculum coordinators, guidance counselors, student per- 
sonnel 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 desinng 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 lor some 
programs. 

Candidates for admission whose high school or college records are consist- 
ently 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 appropnate 
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 matnculation 
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 after the completion of an 
Associate of Arts degree in the community college. 

General Requirements of the College. Minimum requirements for graduation 
are 120 semester hours. Specific program requirements for more than the 
minimum must be fulfilled. 

In addition to the General University Requirements and the specific require- 
ments for each curriculum, the College requires a minimum of 20 semester hours 
of education courses and 3 semester hours of speech. 

A grade of at least C is required in: 1) all education courses; 2) all academic 
courses required in the major and minor; and 3) the required speech course. An 
overall grade point average of C must be maintained. A grade of S is required in 
student teaching. 

Exceptions to curricular requirements and rules of the College of Education 
must be recommended by the student's advisor, and department chairperson, 
and approved by the dean. 

Students who are not enrolled in the College of Education but, who through 
an established cooperative program with another college, are preparing to teach 
and wish to register in professional education courses required for certification 
must meet all curricular and scholastic requirements of the College of Education. 

Majors and Minors. There is no College requirement for a minor although many 
majors require an area of concentration to provide depth in a specific area of 
teaching specialty. Specific program requirements should be consulted. 

Admission to Teacher Education. Students enrolled in an education major 
should confirm the status of their admission to Teacher Education with the 
Student Service Office of the College of Education when they enroll in the first 
education course or at the beginning of the semester immediately after earning 
42 hours. Transfer students with 42 or more hours of acceptable transfer credit 
must apply at time of transfer. Post-graduate certification students and those 
working for certification only must apply at the beginning of their program. 
Application forms may be obtained from the College of Education Student 
Service Office. 

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. A successful field experience in EDHD 300 is a prerequisite to continuation 
in the teacher education course sequence. 

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

4. 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. 

5. 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 purpose of the screening procedure associated with admission to 
teacher education is to insure that graduates of the teacher education program 
will be well prepared for teaching and can be recommended for certification with 
confidence. 

Student Teaching. In order to be admitted to a course in student teaching, a 
student must have been admitted to the Teacher Education Program (see 
above), have a physician's certificate indicating that the applicant is free of 
communicable diseases, and the consent of the department. Application must be 
made with the Director of Laboratory Experiences by the middle of the semester 
which precedes the one in which student teaching will be done. Any applicant for 
student teaching must have been enrolled previously at the University of 
Maryland full time for at least one semester. 

Certification of Teachers. The Maryland State Department of Education 
certifies to teach in the approved public schools of the state only graduates of 
approved colleges who have satisfactorily fulfilled subject-matter and profes- 
sional requirements. The curncula of the College of Education fulfill State 
Department requirements for certification. 

Degrees. The degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science are 
conferred by the College of Education, The determination of which degree is 
conferred is dependent upon the amount of liberal arts study included in a 
particular degree program. 

Organization. The College of Education is organized into eight departments as 
listed under the Division of Human and Community Resources. The non- 
departmental area of Social Foundations offers courses in history, philosophy, 



College of Education Departments. Programs and Curricula 79 



and sociology of education. Unique specialized services for students, faculty, 
teachers and schools are offered through the following centers: 

Arithmetic Center. The Arithmetic Center provides a tvlathematics Laboratory 
for undergraduate and graduate students, and a program of clinical diagnostic 
and corrective/remedial services for children. Clinic services are a part of a 
program in elementary school mathematics at the graduate level. 

Bureau of Educational Research and Field Services. The Bureau of Educa- 
tional Research and Field Services has been established to (1) encourage and 
stimulate basic research bearing on different aspects of the educative process; 
(2) provide assistance in designing, implementing and evaluating research 
projects initiated by local school systems; and (3) coordinate school systems' 
requests for consultants with the rich and varied professional competencies that 
are available on the University faculty. 

Curriculum Laboratory. The Curriculum Laboratory provides students, faculty 
and teachers in the field with materials and assistance in the area of curriculum. 
An up-to-date collection of curriculum materials includes texts, simulations, 
learning packages, programs, resource kits, charts, study guides, curriculum 
studies, and bibliographies. 

Educational Technology Center. The center is designed as a multi-media 
facility for students and faculty of the College. It distributes closed-circuit 
television throughout the building, provides audio-visual equipment and service, a 
computer terminal, a learning lab, and instruction in all aspects of instructional 
materials, aids, and new media. Production and distribution rooms and a studio 
are available for closed-circuit television and a video tape system. Laboratories 
are available for graphic and photographic production with facilities for faculty 
research and development in use of instructional media. Supporting the profes- 
sional faculty in the operation of the center are media specialists. 

Office of Laboratory Experiences. The Office of Laboratory Experiences is 
designed to accommodate the laboratory experiences of students preparing to 
teach by arranging for all field experiences. It also serves functions of program 
liaison, staff development, and research as they pertain to field experiences. This 
office administers the Teacher Education Centers in conjunction with the 
respective public school systems and serves as one of the liaison units between 
the College and the community. Student applications for field experiences, 
including student teaching, are processed through this office. 

Music Educators National Conference Historical Center. The University of 
fvlaryland and the Ivlusic Educators National Conference established the IVIENC 
Histoncal Center in 1965 for the purpose of building and maintaining a research 
collection which would reflect the development and current practices in music 
education. Located in McKeldin Library, the center includes study space and is 
prepared to assist scholars in the field. Ivlaferials in the following categories are 
collected; archival documents of (VIENC; instructional materials; professional 
publications; curricular, administrative, and philosophical materials; manuscripts, 
personal letters and other historical materials. 

Center of Rehabilitation and Manpower Services. The Center of Rehabilitation 
and f(/lanpower Services is one of the operating Divisions of the Department of 
Industral Education. The Center was established in 1 968 as a joint project of the

federal, state and private sources to carry out its mission of improving the 
vocational training and skills of mentally and physically handicapped students 
and adults in Maryland. Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the 
District of Columbia. The Center conducts short-term training institutes for 
teachers, administrators, counselors, vocational evaluators, and supervisors to 
upgrade their skills. Consultative services are provided to agencies and systems 
interested in improving their planning and management policies. The Center alsa 
serves as a multi-media resource providing and developing matehals specifically 
related to the career and vocational training of handicapped people. 

Program content, professional issues and participant concerns are integrated 
into seminar designs to enable the greatest possible gain in new skills, 
information and insight in problem resolution. This approach to learning requires 
limited enrollment to insure the quality of learning. Seminars utilize participative 
learning techniques such as simulations, role plays, small group exercises, 
brainstorming, lectures, practicums, case studies, demonstrations, in-baskets, 
games and critical instances. 

Center for Young Children. A demonstration nursery-kindergarten program (1) 
provides a center in which individual professors or students may conduct 
research; (2) serves as a unit for undergraduate students to have selected 
experiences with young children, such as student teaching, child study, and 
observation of young children; (3) provides a setting in which educators from 
within and without the University can come for sources of ideas relative to the 
education of young children. 

Reading Center. The Reading Center provides clinical diagnostic and corrective 
services to a limited number of children. These services are a part of the program 
in corrective/remedial reading offered to teachers on the graduate level.

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 either to certification as a 
vocational-industrial teacher with no degree involved or to a Bachelor of Science 
degree, including certification. The University of Maryland is designated as the 
institution which shall offer the "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 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 of the general education program characterized by extensive 
laboratory experiences.

Vocational-Industrial Education. The vocational-industrial curriculum is a four- 
year program of studies leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in education. It 
is intended to develop the necessary competencies for the effective performance 
of the tasks of a vocational teacher. In addition to establishing the adequacy of 
the student's skills in a particular trade and the development of instructional 
efficiency, the curriculum aims at the professional and cultural development of 
the individual. Courses are included which would enrich the person's scientific, 
economic, psychological and sociological understandings. The vocational-certifi- 
cation courses for the State of Maryland are a part of the curriculum require- 
ments. 

Persons pursuing this curriculum must present documentary evidence of 
having an apprenticeship or comparable learning period and journeyman- 
experience. This evidence of background and training is necessary in order that 
the trade examination phase of the curriculum may be accomplished. 

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

Secondary Education. The Department of Secondary Education is concerned 
with the preparation of teachers of middle schools, junior high schools, and 
senior high schools in the following areas: art, distnbutive education, English, 
foreign languages, general business, home economics, library science, mathe- 
matics, music, secretarial education, science, social studies, and speech and 
drama. 

In the areas of art, music, and lityary science, teachers are prepared to teach 
in both elementary and secondary schools. Majors in physical education and 
agriculture are offered in the College of Physical Education, Recreation, and 
Health and the College of Agriculture in cooperation with the College of 
Education. Majors in reading are offered only at the graduate level, requiring a 
bachelor's degree, certification, and at least two years of successful teaching 
experience as prerequisites. 

All students who pursue the Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary education 
are required to complete two years (12 semester hours) or the equivalent of a 
foreign language on the college level. If a student has had three years of one 
foreign language or two years of each of two foreign languages as recorded on 
his or her high school transcripts, he or she is not required to take any foreign 
languages in the college, although he or she may elect to do so. 

If a student is not exempt from the foreign language requirements, he or she 
must complete courses through the 104 level of a modern language or 204 level 
of a classical language. 

In the modem languages— French, German, and Spanish— the student 
should take the placement test in the language in which he or she has had work If 
he or she wishes to continue the same language; his or her language instmction 
would start at the level indicated by the test. With classical languages, the 
student would start at the level indicated in the catalog. 

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

Students who have studied languages other than French, German, or 
Spanish, or who have lived for two or more years in a foreign country where a 
language other than English prevails, shall be placed by the chairman of the 
respective language section, if feasible, or by the chairmen of the foreign 
language departments. Native speakers of a foreign language shall satisfy the 
foreign language requirements by taking 12 semester hours of English. 

All students who elect the secondary education curriculum will fulfill the 
preceding general requirements and also prepare to teach one or more school 
subjects which will involve meeting specific requirements in particular subject 
matter fields. 

The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered in the teaching fields of art, English, 
foreign languages, mathematics, social studies, and speech and drama. The 
Bachelor of Science degree is offered in art, distributive education, general 
business, home economics, library science, mathematics, music, science, secre- 
tarial education, social studies and speech and drama. 

The student teaching semester is a full-time commitment and interference 
with this commitment because of employment is not permitted. 

Living arrangements, including transportation for the student teaching assign- 
ments, are considered the responsibility of the student. 

Stude ts must have completed EDHD 300, EDSE 330, and most of their other 
major requirements. In addition, students must have completed the specific

The College of Human Ecology 

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'every 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 expenences 
which prepare an individual in the professional context with those experiences 
which benefit him personally as a fuHv 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 expehences for making knowledge and 
innovative discovery more meaningful to the individual. Through these experi- 
ences the faculty experiments with varying relevant techniques and methods by 
which the individual can transfer to the society-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 provides appropriate, 
comprehensive, quality education programs that prepare students for profes- 
sional positions directed 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 individuals 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 coopel-ate 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 empha- 
size 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 contnbutions 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. 

Special Facilities and Activities. The College of Human Ecology building 
follows the Campus tradition in style, and a construction program has been 
initiated to provide expanded facilities. A management center is maintained on 
the Campus for resident experiences in management activities of family life. 
Located between two large cities, the College provides unusual opportunities 
for both faculty and students. In addition to the University's general and 
specialized libraries, Baltimore and Washington, D.C, furnish added library 
facilities. The art galleries and museums, the government bureaus and city 
institutions stimulate study and provide ennching experiences for students. 

Student Organizations 

AATT-Student Chapter. The Student Chapter of the American Association of 
Textile Technology provides students with an early opportunity to become 
associated with the professional organization of AATT, and to advance at the 
local level the aims and goals of the parent national association. 

Through speakers from the textiles and apparel industry, members are kept 
abreast of the latest techniques and ideas in textiles, as well as coming in contact 
with prospective future employers. 

The chapter hopes to establish several intern programs to provide its 
members with an opportunity to gain some vocational experience before 
graduation. 

All undergraduate students, including freshmen, are eligible to join AATT if 
their curnculum includes at least one major course in the field of textiles. 

ASID-Student Chapter The University of Maryland Student Chapter of the 
Amencan Society of Interior Designers is associated with the professional 
chapter of ASID in Washington DC, Student members have the opportunity for 
contacts with professional and fellow students at meetings sponsored by both 
groups. These can help to orient the student to the job market and to new 
directions in the profession. 

Collegiate Home Economics Organization. The University of Maryland 
Collegiate Home Economics Organization is the student affiliate of the American 
Home Economics Association. Welcoming any Human Ecology major into its 
membership, the organization meets once a month, and links the professional 
world to the college student through different programs. 

The Collegiate Home Economics Organization is the student's opportunity to 
join a professional group prior to graduation and to participate on a student level 
in the national association. 



92 The College of Human Ecology 

Each speaker or demonstrator provides the Collegiate Home Economics 
Organization member with ideas and suggestions for professional preparation by 
introducing the member to the many facets of Human Ecology. 

The Organization gives both students and faculty a chance to work together 
and meet on an informal basis and to open up better channels of communication 
among themselves as well as the outside professional world. 

Student Representatives to college committees are nominated by this group. 

Graphix. The University of Maryland Student Chapter of Industrial Graphics 
International (I.G.I.) provides students with opportunities to meet, and benefit 
from, professionals in the field. These contacts help insure continued updating of 
professional standards and exposure to diverse ideas. 

Omicron Nu. A national honor society whose objectives are to recognize 
superior scholarship, to promote leadership and to stimulate an appreciation for 
graduate study and research in the field of home economics and related areas. 
Graduate students, seniors and second semester juniors are eligible for election 
to membership. 

Financial Aid. A Loan Fund, composed of contributions by the District of 
Columbia Home Economics Association, Maryland Chapter of Omicron Nu, and 
personal gifts, is available through the University Office of Student Aid. 

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

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

Student Load. The student load in the College of Human Ecology varies from 
15-18 credits per semester. A student wishing to carry more than 18 credits must 
have a B grade average and permission of the dean. 

A minimum of 120 academic credits is required for graduation. However, for 
certification in some professional organizations, additional credits are required. 
Consult your advisor. 

General Information. Specific inquiries concerning undergraduate or graduate 
programs in the College of Human Ecology may be directed to the chairman of 
the appropriate department or the Dean, College of Human Ecology, University of 
Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 

Curricula. A student may elect one of the following curricula, or a combination of 
curricula: experimental foods, community nutrition, coordinated dietetics, 
dietetics, nutritional research, or institution administration (food service); family, 
community, or management and consumer studies; home economics education; 
housing, advertising design, interior design, costume, or crafts; apparel design, 
textile marketing, fashion merchandising, textile science, consumer textiles, or 
consumer economics. A student may register in home economics education in 
the College of Human Ecology under the Department of Family and Community

Required Courses. The curricula leading to a major in the College of Human 
Ecology are organized Into four broad professional categories: (1) scientific and 
technical areas, (2) educational, community and family life areas, (3) consumer 
service areas, and (4) design areas. These represent the broad professional 
fields which graduates are eligible to enter and pursue their chosen work. The 
positions vary in nature, scope and title, but require similar general studies 
background and fundamentals for specialization. 

Individual programs of study are developed cooperatively with faculty 
advisors to provide a balanced and sequential arrangement of studies in 
preparation for the chosen field. University, College and departmental require- 
ments are identified for curricula in each of the departments. 

All students in the College of Human Ecology, in addition to meeting the 
General University Requirements, are required to complete a series or sequence 
of courses to satisfy University, College and departmental requirements. The 
remaining courses needed io complete a program of study are elected by the 
student with the approval of his advisor. 

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

The Department of Family and Community Development Is devoted to 
describing, explaining, and Improving the quality of life in urban, suburban, and 
rural areas by means of research, education, community outreach, and public 
service. The approach is holistic, emphasizing human ecology. The curriculum 
places special emphasis upon the family and the community as mediating 
structures in determining life quality. The job for which the curriculum is designed 
include human and community service counseling, planning, research, advocacy, 
and delivery. 

There are three Interrelated majors offered by the Department: 

/. Family Studies. This course of study stresses a working knowledge of the 
growth on 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 develop- 
ment of the individual within the family within tlie community. 

//. Community Studies. This major emphasizes the processes and methods of 
social change, as well as individuals or groups as agents of change. It is 
grounded upon a knowledge of the structures, dynamics, and developmental 
patterns of neighborhoods and other communities; the relationship between the 
community and larger societal units; and the possibilities for social change 
through community service delivery and other Interventions planned and Imple- 
mented by specialists and citizens working together. 

///. Management and Consumer Studies. This concentration focuses on the 
efficient utilization of available home and community resources; the relationship 
between available resources and governmental (and private sector) policies, 
programs, and sen/ices; and the development of expanded resources (or the 
reallocation of resources) responsive to citizen needs through citizen actions 
within the public and private sectors. Information, citizen participation, and the 
organization of consumer advocacy are among the emphases. 

Each of these courses of study includes a set of major subject courses 
offered primarily within the Department plus a sequence of supporting area 
courses which may be taken outside the Department or in an interdepartmental 
combination. Examples of supporting areas include African-Americans, Aging, 
Family Finances, Health, Housing, Rehabilitation, and Urban Neighborhoods.

IV. Home 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 Econom- 
ics — 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.

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 researcti 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 curnculum is 
approved by the Amencan 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. The coordinated program is accredited by the Commission on 
Evaluation of Dietetic Education of the American Dietetic Association. 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. This program is approved by the American Dietetic Associa- 
tion.

Students in Textiles and Consumer Economics may select one of four majors. 
Each major offers diverse professional opportunities. In addition to the require- 
ments of the major, students have the flexibility to take a concentration of 
courses in an area closely related to their major such as business, economics, 
family services, journalism, sciences, art and art history, or speech and dramatice 
art by carefully utilizing their free electives and general university requirements. 
Students are encouraged to work closely with their faculty advisor. 

In the TEXTILE major, emphasis is placed on the scientific and technological 
aspects of textiles. Two options are open to men and women in this program, 
Textile Science or Consumer Textiles. Graduates in Textile Science are prepared 
for textile industry positions in research and testing laboratories, in consumer 
technical service and marketing programs, in quality control, and in buying and 
product evaluation. Graduates in Consumer Textiles are prepared for careers in 
product development and consumer relations programs in business and industry, 
in consumer information and education programs in the public and private sector 
and in government regulatory agencies concerned with textile products. 

The Textile Marketing/Fashion Merchandising major emphasizes the 
marketing of textile products. Men and women completing this program are 
prepared for careers with manufacturing, wholesale and retail organizations in 
buying, merchandising, fashion coordination, publicity, styling, personnel, sales or 
marketing. Two options are open to students in this program. Textile Marketing or 
Fashion Merchandising. Graduates completing the Textile Marketing option will 
be prepared to enter every level of textile marketing at the manufacturing, 
wholesale and retail levels. Graduates in Fashion Merchandising will be prepared 
for careers in retailing with department or specialty stores. A special internship in 
retailing is available for students in the Textile Marketing/ Fashion Merchandising 
program. 

The Apparel Design major offers qualified students the opportunity to 
prepare for positions as designers, assistant designers, stylists, fashion execu- 
tives, fashion coordinators, consultants to the home sewing industry, or extension 
and consumer education programs. 

The Consumer Economics major combines economics and marketing with 
a knowledge of basic consumer goods and services. The program focuses on 
consumer decision-making and the degree to which the marketplace reflects 
consumer needs and preferences. The subject matter includes consumption 
economics, marketing, consumer behavior and consumer law. Graduates 
completing the Consumer Economics program may work in the planning, 
marketing and consumer relations divisions of business and industry, in program 
development and analysis for government agencies providing consumer protec- 
tion services or in extension and consumer education programs. 

An internship program is available to all students majoring in the Department 
of Textiles and Consumer Economics during their senior year. Students must 
apply for admission to the internship program including the retailing internship in 
the second semester of their junior year. 

A Department Honors Program permits outstanding undergraduates to 
explore on an individual basis a program of work which will strengthen their 
undergraduate program and their professional interests. Students selected for 
the program must have at least a "B" average to be considered. Students in the 
honors program participate in a junior honors seminar and present a senior 
thesis. Students completing this program graduate with departmental honors.

100 College of Library and Information Services 



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 N/ledia 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 library science degree. Fifteen hours of 
undergraduate library science courses are offered through the College of Library 
and Information Services. 

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



College of Physical Education, 
Recreation and Health 

The College of Physical Education, Recreation and Health provides prepara- 
tion leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in the following professional 
areas: physical education (three certification options), health education and 
recreation. The College also offerscurricula in safety education, and kinesiologi- 
cal sciences. The College provides research laboratories for faculty members 
and graduate students who are interested in investigating various parameters of 
the fields of health, of physical education, and of recreation and leisure. The 
service section of eacfi department offers a wide variety of courses for all 
University students. These courses may be used to fulfill the General University 
Requirements, and as electives. 

In addition to its various on-campus offerings, this College regularly conducts 
courses in physical education, health education and recreation in various parts of 
the State of Maryland and conducts workshops wherever requested by proper 
officials. 

Programs combining research, service and instruction are provided by the 
Children's Health and Development Clinic, the Adulta' Health and Developmental 
Program, and the Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness Center. 

Indoor Facilities. Five separate buildings support the academic programs of the 
College plus the Intramural Sports Programs for men and women. 

New PERH Building. The second phase of a projected three phase, multimillion 
dollar facility has been completed on the North Campus near the Cambridge 
dorm complex. This building houses the administrative offices of the College and 
most of its faculty. In addition to classrooms, facilities include: two gymnasia, 
three multipurpose rooms, a large gymnastic area, a lecture hall, research 
laboratories, handball-racquetball-squash courts, a weight lifting room, and 
supportive locker and shower rooms. 

Cole Student Activities Building. This building is the center for intercollegiate 
athletics and also serves as a teaching station for various physical education 
classes primarily those involving swimming and conditioning. The main arena of 
this building has 19,796 square feet of floor space. The swimming pool is divided 
into two areas by a permanent bulkhead. The shallow end is 42 x 24 feet and the 
large area is 42 - 75 feet with a depth ranging from 4 to 13 feet. The College 
maintains locker and shower facilities and an equipment room in this building and 
also the Safety Education Program of the Health Education Department. 

Preinl<ert Field House. There is an additional 75,- 35 feet swimming pool in 
Preinkert to serve physical education classes and recreational swimming. 
Supporting locker and shower facilities are available. 



Reckord Armory. The Armory is used pnmanly for the intramural program. It 
houses the offices of the director of intramurals and an athletic equipment room 
from which students may secure equipment for recreational purposes. The 
28,880 sq. ft. of floor space has four basketball courts, with badminton, volleyball, 
and tennis courts superimposed on them. This facility is also used as an indoor 
track, with indoor vaulting, high and broad jump pits, a one-tenth mile track, and a 
70 yard straightaway. 

Ritchie Coliseum. The Coliseum is used as a supplementary facility for 
intramurals and physical education classes. The 6,555 square feet of floor space 
is used primarily for co-educational classes in square and social dance and as an 
intramural basketball court. 

Outdoor Facilities. The Stadium. The stadium, with a seating capacity of 33,536 
has a one-quarter mile tartan track with a 220-yard straightaway. Pits are 
available for pole vaulting and high and broad jumping. West of the stadium are 
facilities for the shot put, discus and javelin throw. The College of Physical 
Education, Recreation and Health uses these facilities for classes in track and 
field. Also east of the stadium are three practice football fields, the baseball 
stadium, and a practice baseball, lacrosse, and soccer field. The College uses 
some of these facilities for major skill classes in football, soccer, and baseball. 
West of the stadium are four combination soccer-touch football play fields, 
complete with goal posts, and four Softball fields with wire backstops for physical 
education classes and recreational use. 

Surrounding the Armory are four touch football fields and eight Softball fields, 
encompassing 18.4 acres. These fields, and the four in the Fraternity Row are 
used for intramurals. 

Immediately west of the Cole Activities Building are 14 all-weather tennis 
courts. A modern 18-hole golf course was opened in 1957. This 204 acre course 
includes two lakes, and an additional 5.8-acre golf driving range for instructional 
purposes. The golf driving range, equipped with lights, and the golf course greatly 
add to present recreational facilities. 

The outdoor facilities of the new PERH Building include sixteen lighted tennis 
courts and an outdoor playing field 300 feet by 600 feet for touch football, soccer, 
and lacrosse. 

The outdoor facilities adjacent to the Preinkert Field House include six hard- 
surfaced tennis courts, and a combination hockey and lacrosse field. 

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 socil 
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 12-18 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 purpose: (l)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 techniques 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: {^)have the recommen- 
dation 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. 



College of Physical Education, Recreation & Health Departments, Programs and Curricula 101 



Field Work. Recreation major students are expected to carry out a number of 
field experiences during ttieir University career: volunteer or part-time recreation 
employment during ttie sctiool 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 dunng 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 (Y's, 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, pnor 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, 
D.C., 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 

Majors' Club. All students enrolled in the College are eligible for membership 
in this organization. It conducts vanous professional meetings, brings in speakers 
and promotes various corecreational activities. It has sponsored trips to district 
and national conventions of the Amencan 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 aTid group stunts, diving, and experimenta- 
tion 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 Pariis 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, Montana, snd the eastern seaboard of the United 
States. The organization has three principal objectives: (1)to provide healthful, 
co-recreational activities that provide fun for ttie 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. 

Campus Sport and Recreation Program 

The former Intramural Program for men and the Women's Recreation 
Association Program are now consolidated under the office of the Campus Sport 
and Recreation in concert with the Office of Student Affairs. The program 
involves more than 20 competitive sport activities and an unstructured recrea- 
tional program for those who do not desire to become part of the competitive 
program. The College of Physical Education, Recreation, and Health encourages 
these activities by scheduling as many of its facilities as possible for students who 
wish to participate in both the competitive programs and in the unstructured 
programs. The Campus Sport and Recreation Programs for the academic year 
1979-80 plan to incorporate an additional function, that of sport and recreation 
clubs. 

In the structured program competition is provided in such activities as field 
hockey, lacrosse, touch football, soccer, golf, tennis, horseshoes, cross country, 
handball, basketball, bowling, weight training, swimming, wrestling, badminton, 
table tennis, Softball, racketball, volleyball, and outdoor track. The Campus Sport 
and Recreation Office is located in room 2134 of the PERM Building. Those 
desiring information concerning tournament entry dates, hours of recreation, 
facility postponements, etc., may call 454-5454 which is a recording operating 24 
hours a day. 

Unstructured Recreational Activities. Free play activities such as tennis, 
swimming, handball, racquetball, and basketball have become very popular with 



students, faculty and staff on the College Park Campus. The College of Physical 
Education, Recreation and Health encourages these activities by scheduling as 
many of its facilities available as possible for students who wish to participate on 
an informal basis. 

Pt)i Aiplia Epsilon. Honorary Society of the College of Physical Education, 
Recreation and Health. 

The purpose of this organization is to recognize academic achievement and 
to promote professional growth by sponsonng activities in the fields of physical 
education, recreation, health and related areas. 

Students shall qualify for membership at such times as they shall have 
attained junior standing in physical education, health or recreation, and have a 
minimum overall average of 2.7 and a minimum professional average of 3.1. 
Graduate students are invited to join after 10 hours of work with a 3.3 average. 
The organization is open to both men and women. 

Sigrr^a Tau Epsilon. This society, founded in 1 940, selects those women who 
have attained an overall 2.5 average and demonstrated outstanding leadership, 
service and sportsmanlike qualities in the organization and activities of ttie 
Women's Recreation Association and its affiliated groups. 

Eta Sigma Gamma. Epsilon chapter was established at the University of 
Maryland in May of 1969. This professional honorary organization for health 
educators was established to promote scholarship and community service 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. 

Equipment: Students may be required to provide individual equipment for 
certain courses. 

Uniforms: Suitable uniforms, as prescribed by the College, are required for 
the activity classes and for student teaching. These uniforms should be worn only

This program 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.

Division of l\/lathematical and Physical 
Sciences and Engineering 

The Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Engineering is like a 
technical Institute within a large university. Students majoring in any one of the 
disciplines encompassed by the Division have the opportunity of obtaining an 
outstanding education in their field. The Division caters both to students who 
continue as professionals in their area of specialization, either immediately upon 
graduation or after post graduate studies, and to those who use their college 
education as preparatory to careers 5r studies in other areas. The narrow 
specialist as well as the broad "Renaissance person" can be accommodated. 

Below are outlined the requirements for each major offered within the 
Division. Some of the University requirements and regulations are reiterated. 

The search for new knowledge is one of the most challenging activities of 
mankind. The university is one of the key institutions in society where fundamen- 
tal research is emphasized. The Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences 
and Engineering contributes very substantially and effectively to the research 
activities of the University. 

Many research programs include undergraduates either as paid student 
helpers or in forms of research participation. Students in departmental honors 
programs are particularly given the opportunity to become involved in research. 
Other students too may undertake research under the guidance of a faculty 
member. 

A major portion of the teaching program of the Division is devoted to serving 
students majoring in disciplines not encompassed by the Division. Some of this 
teaching effort is in providing the skills needed in support of such majors or 



104 College of Engineering 



programs. Other courses are designed as enrichment for non-science students, 
giving them the opportunity to explore the reality of science without the 
technicalities required of the major. 

Structure of the Division. The College of Engineering is a major constituent of 
the MPSE Division, and is headed by its own Dean. All other departments and 
programs in the Division report directly to the Provost of the Division. 
The following departments and programs comprise the Division of MPSE. 

Department of Computer Science

General Information 

The MPSE Undergraduate Office, Y-11 1 (454-4596) is the central office for 
coordinating the advising, processing and updating of student records for 
students not in the College of Engineering. Inquiries concerning University 
regulations, transfer credits and other general information should be addressed 
to this office. Specific departmental information is best obtained directly from the 
departments. 

The records of students in the College of Engineering are processed and kept 
in the Engineering Student Affairs Office, J-1107 (454-2421). Inquiries concern- 
ing Engineering curricula should be addressed there. 

The Division is strongly committed to making studies in the sciences and 
engineering available to all regardless of their background. In particular, the 
Division is actively pursuing an affirmative action program to rectify the present 
under-representation of women and minorities in these fields. There are in fact 
many career opportunities for women and members of minorities in the fields 
represented by the Division. 
Degree Requirements. 
A. A minimum of 120 semester hours with at least a C average are required for 
all Bachelor of Science degrees from the Division. All B.S. degrees 
conferred by the College of Engineering require more than 120 credits; the 
exact number varies with the department. 
8. 30 credits are specified under the General University Requirements. 

C. Major and supporting course work is specified under each department or 
program. 

D. The final 30 semester hours must be completed at the College Park 
Campus. Occasionally this requirement may tie waived by the Provost or 
Dean for up to six of these 30 credits to be taken at another institution. Such 
a waiver is granted only if the student already has 30 credits in residence. 

E. Students must be enrolled in the program in which they plan to graduate by 
the time they register for the last 15 hours. 



College of Engineering 



The College of Engineering offers four-year programs leading either to the 
degree of Bachelor of Science with curriculum designation in Aerospace 
Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Chemical Engineenng, Civil Engineering, 
Electrical Engineenng, Fire Protection Engineenng, Mechanical Engineering, 
Nuclear Engineering, or to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with 
an Engineenng option or an Applied Science option, or to the degree of Bachelor 



of Science in Engineering Technology (Mechanical Engineering Option) or to the ■ 
degree of Bachelor of Science in Urban Studies (Fire Science Option). In 
addition, each of the foregoing degree programs may be pursued through the 
five-year Maryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education. The engineering 
programs integrate these elements: (1) basic sciences, including mathematics, 
physics, chemistry; (2) engineering sciences including mechanics of solids and 
fluids, engineering materials, thermo-dynamics, electricity, and magnetism; (3) 
professional studies in major fields of engineering specialization; and (4) general 
studies including liberal arts and social studies as part of the General University 
Requirements. Each program lays a broad base for continued 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, because, in addition to the understanding of scientific 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 the 
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. Effective witt) students enrolling in ttie College of Engineering in Spring 
1979 or thereafter: A grade of C or better is required in all courses witti EN— or 
ET— prefixes that are presented towards the requirements of a degree. 

5. A student in the College of Engineering may audit a course only with the 
understanding that the course may not be taken for 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. 

6. The College of Engineering requires that a minimum of eighteen (18) 
semester credit hours out of 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 In 
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 requirement. 

High School Preparation. Preparation for pursuing an engineering degree 
curriculum begins in the freshman or sophomore year of high school. The time 
required to complete the various degree programs may be extended beyond the 
four years cited in this catalog to the extent that an incoming student may be 
deficient in his or her high school preparation. Pre-engineering students normally 
enroll in an academic program in high school. The course of study should include 
3H-4 years of college preparatory mathematics (including algebra, trigonometry, 
plane and solid geometry plus calculus or pre-calculus advanced mathematics). 
In addition, students should complete one year each of physics and chemistry. 

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 must obtain written approval 
for any substitution of courses from the department chairman and the dean of the 
college. 



College of Engineering 105 



The courses in each engineering cimculum. as classified above, form a 
sequential and developmental pattern in subject matter. In this respect, curricula 
in engineenng 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. 
Moreover, the College of engineering establishes policies which supplement the 
University regulations. 

Curricula for the various engineering departments are given in this catalog to 
illustrate how the programs can be completed in four years. These curricula are 
rigorous and relatively difficult for the average student. Surveys have shown that 
only about one-third to one-half of the students actually receive an engineering 
degree in four years. The majority of students complete an engineering program 
in four and one-half to five years (whether at Maryland or at other engineering 
schools on a national basis). It is quite feasible for a student to stretch out any 
curriculum (which might be necessary or desirable for a variety of reasons). 
However, students should seek competent advising in order to ensure that 
courses are taken in the proper sequence. 

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 Ounior 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 interdepart- 
mental transfer up to the end of the sophomore year. 

Basic Freshman Curriculum In Engineering. All freshmen in the College of 
Engineering are required to complete the following basic cun-iculum for freshmen 
regardless of whether the student plans to proceed through one of the major field 
designated baccalaureate degree programs or follow any of the multidisciplinary, 
non-designated degree curricula that are sponsored by the College.

Students who are not prepared to schedule MATH 140 are advised to register 
for a preparatory course— MATH 115— as part of their General University 
Requirement. These students are also advised to attend summer school 
following their freshman year to complete MATH 141 and PHYS 161 prior to 
entrance into the sophomore year of study. MATH 141 , ENES 1 10 and PHYS 161 
are prerequisites for many courses required in the sophomore year. 

••Qualified students may elect to take CHEM 105 and 106 (4 cr. hrs. each) instead ot CHEM 
103 and 104. 

The Sophomore Year in Engineering. With the beginning of the sophomore 
year the student selects a sponsoring academic department (Aerospace, 
Agricultural, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Fire Protection, or Mechanical Engineer- 
ing), and this department assumes the responsibility for the student's academic 
guidance, counseling and program planning from that point until the completion 
of the degree requirements of that department as well as the College. For the 
specific requirements, see the curriculum listing in each engineering department. 

Engineering Transfer Programs. Most of the community colleges in Maryland 
provide one- or two-year programs which have been coordinated to prepare 
students to enter the sophomore or junior year in engineering at the University of 
Maryland. These curricula are identified as Engineermg Transfer Programs in the 
catalogs of the sponsoring institutions. The various associate degree programs in 
technology do not provide the preparation and transferability into the professional 
degree cun'icula as the designated transfer programs. 

A maximum of one-half of the degree credits (approximately 60-65 semester 
hours) may be transfen-ed from a two-year community college program. 

There may be 6-8 semester hours of major departmental courses at the 
sophomore level which are not offered by the schools participating in the 
engineering transfer program. Students should investigate the feasibility of 
completing these courses in Summer School at the University of Maryland before 
starting their junior course work in the fall semester. 

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— determined individually, approximate- 
ly 60 hours). 

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

At the present time the participating institutions are Amencan University. 
Bowie State College, Coppin, Frostburg, King College (Bnstol, Tenn.), Notre 
Dame of Maryland, St. Mary's (St, Mary's City). Salisbury State, Towson and 
Trinity (Washington, D.C.). 

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

Program Director— Dr Donald J. Blair 

The Maryland Plan for Cooperative 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 com- 
pleted 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 aboijt 
65 degree credits) and (2) the establishment of a cumulative grade point average 
at the University of Maryland of at least 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 semester, 12 semester hours during the summer and three 
semester hours in the evening during two internship periods.

mental agency will assist the student in locating good, inexpensive lodging. The 
internship wages are paid directly to the student by his employer. 

During the semesters or summer sessions in which the student attends 
school, he 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

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 of 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 grovrth 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 acquacultural production units; and to the 
flow of products from the production units and the processing plants to the 
consumer. The agricultural engineer places emphasis on maintaining a high 
quality environment as they work toward developing efficient and economical 
engineering solutions.

The Chemical Engineering Department offers programs in chemical, materi- 
als 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 undergraduate for continued gradu- 
ate study or immediate industrial employment following the baccalaureate 
■ gree. 

The chemical engineering program involves the application of sound engi- 
neering and economic principles— and basic sciences of mathematics, physics 
and chemistry— to process industries concerned with the chemical transforma- 
tion of matter. The chemical engineer is primarily concerned with research and 
process development leading to new chemical process ventures or a better 
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, metallurgi- 
cal, nuclear and energy conversion, petroleum (refining, production, or petro- 
chemical), and pharmaceutical industries. Additional opportunities are presented 
by the research and development activities of many public and private research 
institutes and allied agencies.

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. 
Ivlany 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 emphasiz- 
es the development of a high degree of technical competence. The program 
orients the student toward computer-aided design techniques and prepares the 
student to incorporate new concepts that will develop dunng 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 engineenng 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.

The program in the Electrical Engineering Department features flexibility by 
means of a broad elective structure (inside and outside the Department). The 
student may attain breadth or specialization as he chooses. 



College of Engineering Departments. Programs and Curricula 109 



Areas stressed include such fields as: electronics, integrated circuits, solid 
state devices, lasers, communication engineering, information theory and coding 
engineering, system theory, computer software and hardware, particle accelera- 
tors, electromechanical transducers, energy conversion, electrical engineering, 
and many others. 

Apprenticeship programs allow qualified undergraduate 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 undergraduate students to do 
independent study under the guidance of a faculty member in an area of mutual 
interest. 

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 must fully understand the most modern 
devices and methodologies available. To find the best solution he must have a 
broad education. To find a solution that is also acceptable to society he must be 
concerned with the economic, ecologic and human factors involved in the 
problem. Finally, current problems frequently require a thorough knowledge of 
advanced mathematics and physics. 

The 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 undergradu- 
ate advising. The student is encouraged to discuss his program and career plans 
with his advisor in order to get maximum benefit from the curriculum.

Fire Protection Engineering 

Professor and Chairman: Bryan 
Associate Professor: Hickey 
Assistant Professor: Watts 
Lecturers (part-time): Hicks, Walton 

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

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineering are relatively well- 
defined and the application of these principles to a modern 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 extinguish- 
ing equipment. The fire protection engineer must be prepared to decide in any 
given case what is the best and most economical solution of the fire prevention 
problem. His or her recommendations are often based not only on sound 
principles of fire protection but on a thorough understanding of the special 
problems of the individual property. 

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

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

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. 

Programs of study in engineering materials at the undergraduate and 
graduate level are offered through the chemical and mechanical engineering 
departments. Students may use Engineering Materials as a field of concentration 
in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Program. 

Students choosing materials engineering as their primary field should submit 
a program for approval during their junior year. The following is an example of 
such a program. Students electing materials engineering as their secondary field 
should seek advice from a member of the materials engineering faculty prior to 
their sophomore year.

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 develop- 
ments. Of particular importance are the aspects of engineering science and art 
relating to the generation and transmission of mechanical power, the establish- 
ment 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 coordination 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, manage- 
ment materials handling, metals engineering, nuclear engineering, petroleum, 
power, pressure vessels and piping, process industries, railroad, rubber and 
plastics, safety, solar energy, textiles and undenwater technology. 

There are many career opportunities in all of these fields. In particular, the 
areas of design, systems analysis, management, consulting, research, mainte- 
nance, 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, mathemat- 
ics, 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 in many environmental, biological 
and chemical processes. Because of the wide range of uses for nuclear systems, 
the nuclear engineers 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

'Students transferring equivalent courses as part of their first two year's credits may make 
appropriate substitutions. It is strongly recommended that students complete thermodynamics 
before entering the junior year. If this is not feasible, they must take ETME 210 during the first 
semester. t1 is recommended that students complete an equivalent computer programming 
course before starting the junior year. Students who have not taken computer programming by 
the end of their junior year must take programming in lieu of a technical elective.

Urban Studies-Fire Science 

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 Interdisci- 
plinary nature of the Urban Studies program will provide public fire safety 
personnel with a technical background and understanding of urban considera- 
tions 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 Studles-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 Studles-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 community college level. The primary focus of these 
courses Is the analysis of current tecfinology In fire protection, urban fire service 
delivery criteria, and research for the improved provision of public fire safety.

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 new 
Interdisciplinary fields of engineering such as environmental engineering, bio- 
medical engineering, systems engineering, and many others; and finally (3) to 
educate those students who do not plan a normal professional career in a 
designated engineering field but wish to use a broad engineering education so as 
to be better able to 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, blo-engineering, bio- 
medical, and systems and control engineering, or for preparatory entry Into a 
variety of newer or Interdisciplinary areas of graduate study. For example, a 
student contemplating graduate work in environmental engineering might com- 
bine chemical and civil engineering for his or her program; a student Intrested In 
systems and control engineering graduate work might combine electrical 
engineering with aerospace, chemical, 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 junior and 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 for decision. Either program may be taken on 
the regular four-year format or under the Maryland Plan for Cooperative 
Engineering Education.

The Bachelor of Science in Engineenng degree provides tne student an 
excellent opportunity to develop a professional level of competence m 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 engineenng 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 Engineenng option, the student would generally combine Chemical 
Engineering (as either pnmary or secondary field) with another engineenng 
discipline. This option allows the student to complete more advanced work in his 
primary field of engineenng than does the Applied Science option. Either option 
can tie completed in a four-year period with careful planning and scheduling.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers a major in Astronomy. The 
Astronomy Program office Is located in the Space Sciences Building Astronomy 
Stijdents are given a sti^ong 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 stijdents' special talents or interests after the basic requirements 
for a sound astronomy education have been met Students prepanng 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 
ooservatories, for graduate work In astronomy or related fields, and for non- 
astronomical careers such as in law or business. 

Asti^onomy majors are required to take an inb-oductory course in astronomy. 
This will usually be ASTR 181, 182. However students with the appropriate 
physics background could take the one semester introductory course, ASTR 350, 
instead. In addition ASTR 210 (Practical Asti^onomy) and two 400 level asti-onomy 
courses are required for the major. 

Students majoring in astronomy are also required to obtain a good back- 
ground in physics. The normal required course sequence is PHYS 191, 192, 293 
and 294 along with the attendent lab courses 195, 196, 295 and 296. In addition, 
the student would be required to take PHYS 421-422 or 410-411. Required 
supporting courses are MATH 140, 141 and 240 or 241 or 246. 

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 advance courses beyond 
the minimum required, to be selected from astronomy, physics and mathematics. 

Detailed information on typical programs and alternatives to the standard 
program can be found In the pamphlet entitled "Department Requirements for a 
B.S. degree in Asti^onomy " which is available from the Asti-onomy Program offce. 
Note: Some changes in the required program for Astronomy majors are under 
discussion. Check with the Asti-onomy office for further details. 

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 n^iany 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, fs^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 if. These courses do not require any background in mathematics or 
physics and are geared especially to the non-science major. ASTR 100 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. Such topics as the Solar System, Galaxies and the 
Universe and Life in the Universe are offered.

The Department of Computer Science offers a B.S. degree in Computer 
Science. The program is designed to meet the three broad objectives of service 
to the community, qualification for employment, and preparation for graduate 
work. It provides the student with the flexibility to select courses in areas of 
individual interest and in line with the student's goals after graduation. 

Requirements for a Computer Science Major 

1 . A minimum of 30 credit hours of CIVISC courses, at least 24 hours of which 
are at 300-400 levels, with an overall average of "C" or better. 

2. Either of the mathematics calculus sequences (MATH 140, 141, or fvlATH 
150, 151) with at least a "C" average as supporting course work. Additional 
mathematics and statistics courses are recommended but not required. 

3. 30 credit hours which satisfy the General University Requirements as 
presented in the University Catalog. None of these may be CI^SC courses 
or specified prerequisites to Cfi^SC courses. 

4. Electives to obtain at least the minimum 120 hours needed 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, CfvISC 103, 110, for students with little or no computer background. 

CMSC 103 is considered a terminal course for nonmajors. 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 matenal 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 1 10 or if they 
could obtain credit for it by examination. Credit by examination is possible for 
CMSC 1 10 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 475, 477, 480; Computer Systems: CMSC 210, 
311, 411, 412, 415; Information Processing: CMSC 220, 420, 426; Numerical 
Analysis: CMSC 460, 470, 471; Programming Languages: CMSC 330, 430, 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 Ph.D. 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. 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, and a statistics course.

'All of tfiese programs include the CMSC 110. 120 sequence during tfie first year. 

>lonors Program. A departmental honors program has been developed to 
provide an opportunity for selected undergraduate students in computer science 
to begin scholarly research by conducting suitable independent study in a 
direction and at a pace not possible in the customary lecture courses. Students 
are accepted into the program after their sophomore year based on their overall 
academic performance in computer science courses taken. 

At least one course appropriate for departmental honor students is offered 
each semester. An honors paper of expository or research nature, representing 
independent study on the part of the student, under guidance of and certified to 
by a member of the professorial faculty, must be completed in addition to other 
departmental requirements. 

Computer Equipment. The department maintains a mini-and microcomputer 
laboratory for instruction and research. The laboratory has three complete 
PDP— 1 1 /40/45 systems connected by high-speed lines to the central Univac 
computers, a DEC GT-40 graphics terminal, and a graphics dot-matric printer. A 
number of microprocessors are available, including an LSI— 11. A small shop is 
well equipped with components and test equipment. The laboratory is used for 
hands-on experience, particularly in operating system software. The department 
also has a number of hard-copy and display terminals connected to the central 
Univac computers (currently a UNIVAC 1108 and 11/44 computer system).

The program in mathematics leads to a degree of Bachelor of 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. 

Upper Level Math Requirements: A mathematics major is required to complete 
MATH 410, 41 1 , either 403 or 402 and five other upper division courses to make 
a total of eight MATH/STAT/MAPL courses (24 credits). A linear algebra course 
is also required and this requirement may be satisfied by one of the following: 
MATH 240, 405, 461, or 474. A grade of C or better must be presented for each 
course used to meet the MATH/STAT/MAPL major requirements. With special 
written permission from the Undergraduate Chairman, given in advance, 2 upper 
level courses from selected Departments may be substituted for one of the eight 
upper level mathematics courses with the exception, that these two courses may 
not replace either MATH 410 or MATH 411. All Math/Stat majors beginning 
Spring, 1979 are required to take either Math 143 or CMSC 1 10 or any course for 
which CMSC is an official prerequisite. 



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 provided written permission is given in advance or transfer credit 
has been approved. However, at least four of the eight required upper division 
MATH/STAT/MAPL courses must be taken in the Department of Mathematics. 

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

Within the Department of Mathematics there are a 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. 

1. Pure Mathematics: the courses which clearly belong in this area are: MATH 
402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 410, 411, 413, 414, 415, 416, 417, 430, 431, 432, 
433, 436, 444, 446, 447, 450, 490; STAT: 410, 411. 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 teaching: the following courses are particularly suited for 
students preparing to teach mathematics at the secondary level: MATH 402, 
406, 430, 431, 444, 450, 490; 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 
must apply for and be admitted to teacher education. 

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 
statistician, one should combine STAT 400-401 with at least two more 
statistics courses, most suitably STAT 450 and STAT 440. A stronger 
sequence is STAT 410, 420, 450. This offers a better understanding and 
wider knowledge of statistics and is a general purpose program (i.e., does 
not specify one area of application). For economics applications STAT 400, 
401, 450, and MAPL 477 should be considered. For operations research 
MAPL 477 and/or STAT 411 should be added or perhaps substituted for 
STAT 450. To prepare for graduate work, STAT 410 and 420 give the best 
background, with STAT 411, 421, 440, 450, and 460 added at some later 
stage. At least one computer science course is recommended. 

4. Computational mathematics: there are a number of math courses which 
emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics including the use of 
the computer. They are MAPL 460, 470, 471, 477; MATH: 472, 474, 475. 
Students interested in this area should take CMSC 1 10 as eariy 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, 413 or 463, 414, 
415, 436, 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. Concentra- 
tion in this area 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 junior year. 
To graduate with honors in mathematics they must pass a final written and oral 
comprehensive examination. Six credits of graduate work or three credits in a 
graduate course and three credits of independent study in mathematics approved 
by the Honors Committee are also required. The rest of the program is flexible. 
Independent work is 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 Departmen- 
tal 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 n,eed not be 
mathematics majors. 

Pi Mu Epsilon. The local chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, national honorary mathemat- 
ics fraternity, meets frequently to discuss mathematical or educational topics of 
interest to undergraduates. The programs are open to the public.

Placement in Mathematics Courses. The department has a large offering 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 depart- 
ment's Credit-by-Examination. Students are urged to consult with advisors from 
the Mathema tics Department to assist with proper placements. 
Statistics and Probability, and Applied Mathematics. Courses in statistics and 
probability and applied mathematics are offered by the Department of Mathemat- 
ics. These courses are open to non-majors as well as majors, and carry credit in 
Mathematics. Students wishing to concentrate in the above may do so by 
choosing an appropriate program under the Department of Mathematics.

The Meteorology Program 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 environ- 
mental 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 bachelor's 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 atmi^phere 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.

Purpose. This program is suggested for many types of students: these whose 
interests cover a wide range of the physical sciences; those whose interests have 
not yet centered on any one science; students interested in a career in an 
interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences; students who seek a broader 
undergraduate program than is possible in one of the traditional physical 
sciences; students interested in meteorology; preprofessional students (prelaw, 
premedical); or students whose interests in business, technical writing, advertis- 
ing 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, computer science, and 
the engineering disciplines. 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. 

More detailed information concerning the Physical Sciences Program is 
available from the MPSE Undergraduate Office, Math Building, Y-1110. 

The Curriculum. The basic courses include MATH 140, 141 and one other math 
course for which MATH 141 is a prerequisite (11 or 12 credits); CHEM 103 and 
104, or 105 and 106 (8 credits); PHYS 162, 262, 263 (11 credits); or 141, 142 (8 
credits); or 191, 192/293/294, 195, 196, 295, 296 (18 credits); or 221, 222 (10 
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 161-263 or 191-294. 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 just 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, computer 
science, and one of the engineering disciplines, subject to certain limitations. 
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. 

Engineering courses used for one of the options must all be from the same 
department, e.g., all must be ENEE courses, or a student may use a combination 
of courses in ENCH, ENNU and ENMA, which are all offered by Department of 
Chemical and Nuclear Engineering; courses offered as engineering sciences, 
ENES, will be considered as a department for these purposes. Engineering 
Technology courses (ET prefix) are not applicable for a major in Physical 
Sciences. 

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 the fields included in the program are not suitable 
for Physical Science majors and cannot count as part of the requirements of the 
program. 'These include any courses corresponding to a lower level than the 
basic courses specified above (e.g., MATH 115), some of the special topics 
courses designed for non-science students, as well as other courses. A complete 
listing of "excluded" courses is available from the MPSE Division office. 

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 "Undergraduate Programs 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, 111 and 
112 without a laboratory and PHYS 117 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 318 is a one semester course stressing contempo- 
rary 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 1 95, 1 96 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, (if offered) and then go on 
to advanced courses. 

The requirement for a physics major includes six laboratory courses and 
PHYS 410, 411, 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 for independent 
work or study, and certain graduate courses are open for credit toward the 
bachelor's degree. 

Students are accepted by the department's Honors Committee on the basis 
of recommendations from their advisors and other faculty members. 

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 Communications 

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 wnting 
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 agrono- 
my, astronomy, geology— and its impact on society— in ecological problems, 
space exploration, and plate tectonics. 

The following are several approaches: Writing about the ptiysical 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, entomology, microbiology, and 
zoology, and introduces the student to the general principles and methods of 
each of these biological sciences. 

Writing about engineering: A recommended approach would be to take the 
B.S.-Engineering Program with a minor in journalism. The B.S.-Engineering 
Program blends two or three fields of engineering or 'applied science. 

Writing about a specific field: 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 familarity with scientific 
thought and application. 

Science or Math Education 

Students completing an undergraduate major in astronomy, physics, physical 
sciences, or in math, or who may be enrolled in the College of Education, may 
prepare to teach astronomy, physics, physical science, or math. Early contact 
should be made with either Dr. John Layman (astronomy, physics, physical 
sciences) or Dr. Neil Davidson (math). 

Statistics and Probability 

The Mathematical Statistics Program offers a wide range of undergraduate 
courses in applied statistics, mathematical statistics and probability. The program 
is administered by the Statistics Branch of the Mathematics Department, and all 
STAT courses carry credit in Mathematics. 

An undergraduate program stressing statistics is available to majors in 
Mathematics. See the Mathematics listing for details. Master's and doctoral 
degrees in statistics are offered by the Mathematical Statistics Program.
