6 Academic Information 



University Policy Statement 

The provisions of this publication are not to be regarded as an irrevocable 
contract between the student and the University of Maryland. Changes are 
effected from time to time in the general regulations and in the academic 
requirements. There are established procedures for making changes, procedures 
which protect the institution's integrity and the individual student's interest and 
welfare. A curriculum or graduation requirement, when altered, is not made 
retroactive unless the alteration is to the student's advantage and can be 
accommodated within the span of years normally required for graduation. When 
the actions of a student are judged by competent authority, using established 
procedure, to be detrimental to the interests of the University community, that 
person may be required to withdraw from the University. 

It is University policy that smoking in classrooms is prohibited unless all 
participants agree to the contrary. Any student has the right to remind the 
instructor of this policy throughout the duration of the class. 



Important Information on Fees and Expenses 

All Students Who Pre-Register Incur a Financial Obligation to the Universi- 
ty. Those students who pre-register and subsequently decide not to attend must 
notify the Registrations Office, Room 1130A, North Administration Building, in 
writing, prior to the first day of classes. If this office has not received a request for 
cancellation by 4:30 p.m. of the last day before classes begin, the University will 
assume the student plans to attend and accepts his or her financial obligation. 
After classes begin, students who wish to terminate their registration must 
follow the withdrawal procedures and are liable for charges applicable at the time 
of withdrawal. 

Disclosure of Information. In accordance with "The Family Educational Rights 
and Privacy Act of 1974" (P.L. 93-380), popularly referred to as the "Buckley 
Amendment," disclosure of student information, including financial and academ- 
ic, is restricted. Release to anyone other than the student requires a written 
waiver from the student. (For complete University Policy on access to and release 
of student data/information, see page 45.) 

State of Maryland legislation has established a State Central Collections Unit 
and in accordance with State law the University is required to turn over all 
delinquent accounts to them for collection and legal follow-up. These are 
automatically done on a monthly basis by computer read-out. 

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

athletic conference regulations and political, religious and ethnic/cultur- 
al clubs are not prohibited. 

2. Discrimination is not prohibited where based on a bona fide job 
qualification or a qualification required for the fulfillment of bona fide 
educational or other institutional goals. Complaints concerning the 
legitimacy of such qualifications may be the subject of human relations 
grievance actions. 

3. The provisions of this Code shall not apply to potential students or 
potential employees of the University. However, applicants for admis- 
sion or employment who believe they have been discriminated against 
by any part of the Campus community may convey such belief together 
with all relevant facts to the Office of Human Relations Programs, for 
informational purposes. 

4. The grievance procedures under this Code shall not apply to judgments 
concerning academic performance of students (e.g., grades, disserta- 
tion defenses), pending further study and action by the College Park 
Senate and University Administration. 

5. The Campus, with the advice and approval of the Attorney General's 
Office, shall review on a continuing basis all new laws and regulations 
which apply to this Campus to determine if any shall require changes in 
the coverage or exceptions to coverage of this Code. 

E. This Code shall apply to the Campus community in relation to, but not only 
to, the following: 

1. All educational, athletic, cultural and social activities occurring on the 
Campus or in another area under its jurisdiction;

Article III Human Relations Enforcement Procedures 

A. In order to identify policies or practices which may reflect discrimination, the 
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- 
ents) 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 forwarded to the Office of Human Relations Programs 
within five (5) working days of their receipt. Copies of the complaint shall be 
forwarded 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 
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 
be 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 



16 



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 
Committee may be assisted by an adviser. All the parties to the dispute and 
the Grievance Committee may invite persons to testify during the hearing. 
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 hours 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 rules 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 clearly 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 
occurred, 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 parlies 
to the dispute, the Chancellor and the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human 
Relations of the decision. 

0. The Chancellor shall within ten (10) working 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 warranted 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 unreasonably burden a party's 
preparation of his/her case or otherwise 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. 

Article IV Constitution of Human Relations Grievance 
Committee 

A. A Human Relations Grievance Committee shall consist of five (5) members 
selected by an affirmative vote of at least two (2) members of a Selection 
Panel consisting of 

1. The Vice Chancellor of the unit of the Campus within which the alleged 
discrimination falls. In cases of disputed jurisdiction, decisions as to 
which Vice Chancellor shall participate will be made by the several Vice 
Chancellors. 

2. The Director of the Office of Human Relations Programs. 

3. The Chairman of the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations. 
If any of these persons is unable to participate, he or she shall designate 
a suitable replacement. 

B. The selection of a Human Relations Grievance Committee shall be made in 
such a way as to promote a fair and impartial judgment. An effort shall be 
made to constitute the Grievance Committee of persons reasonably familiar 
with the kind of employment or other situation which the case concerns. 

C. A determined effort shall be made to gain the consent of complainant and 
respondent concerning the membership of the Grievance Committee. If in 
the judgment of the Selection Panel such efforts become unreasonably 
prolonged, membership will be determined by majority vote of the Selection 
Panel. 

D. None of the members of a Grievance Committee shall have been involved in 
the action which is the subject of the complaint. This Selection Panel shall 
remove a member of a Grievance Committee whenever they find that 
member to have a personal involvement in that case; and may excuse a 
member from serving on the Grievance Committee on grounds of illness or 
on other reasonable grounds. 

E. Members of the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations shall not 
be eligible concurrently for inclusion on Human Relations Grievance 
Committees. 

F. The Chairman of a Human Relations Grievance Committee shall be elected 
by the members of the Committee. 

G. Members of a Human Relations Grievance Committee and those officially 
involved in a hearing shall not be penalized either academically or financially 
for time missed from work or classes during official meetings of the 
Committee. 

Article V The Equal Education and Employment Opportunity 
Officer 

A. Equal Education and Employment Opportunity Officers shall be instrumental 
in the implementation of the Human Relations Code within each unit of the 
College Park Campus. 

B. Employees on all levels within each unit of the Campus will have access to 
the assistance of an EEEO Officer. In non-academic divisions, EEEO 
Officers shall be elected by unit employees under the supervision of the 
equity officer within whose responsibility the unit falls, or shall be selected 
by the unit Director in consultation with the appropriate equity officer, in 
either case in accordance with the Affirmative Action Plan of that unit. EEEO 
Officers in the academic Divisions shall be chosen in the manner prescribed 
by the divisional council of each division. 

C. The functions of EEEO Officers shall include but not be limited to: 

1. Advising unit administrators with respect to the preparation plans, 
procedures, regulations, reports, and other matters pertaining to the 
Campus Human Relations Program. 



Admission and Orientation 17 



2. Evaluating periodically the effectiveness and sufficiency of unit Affirma- 
tive Action Plans and other unit plans in relation to the goals of this 
Code, and reporting these to unit administrators with recommendations 
as to what improvements or corrections are needed. 

3. Participating in the development of policies and programs within units 
with respect to hiring and recruitment, training and upgrading, and in all 
matters pertaining to the elimination of discrimination prohibited by this 
Code. If a unit fails to develop policies and programs of this nature, it is 
the task of the EEEO Officer to act in an advocacy role and call this fact 
first to the attention of the unit administrator, and if no responsive action 
ensues, then to the Divisional Assistant for Affirmative Action. The 
EEEO Officer is free at all times to report such cases directly to the 
Office of Human Relations Programs and the Senate Adjunct Committee 
on Human Relations. 

4. Serving in a liaison capacity between the unit to which he/she is 
assigned and all segments of its personnel and attempting to remedy 
problems brought to his/her attention regarding alleged discrimination. 

5. Advising students or employees of the unit who have reason to believe 
that discrimination as defined in this Code is occurring. At the request of 
the aggrieved person the EEEO Officer shall keep any or all aspects of 
the grievance confidential until a formal complaint has been filed. If the 
aggrieved so requests, the EEEO Officer shall attempt to resolve the 
matter, calling upon the assistance of the equity officer where appropri- 
ate. The EEEO Officer will keep a record of such advisory and 
conciliatory activities and periodically brief the equity officer. 

6. Advising and otherwise aiding complainants in making formal complaints 
under this Code. When a complaint is filed with an EEEO Officer, the 
complaint shall be forwarded by that officer within five (5) working days 
to the equity officer and the Office of Human Relations Programs. The 
EEEO Officer shall be available to assist in a preliminary investigation of 
the complaint conducted under the general supervision of the Office of 
Human Relations Programs, to determine whether there is probable 
cause to believe that prohibited discrimination has occurred. 

7. Making recommendations to the Office of Human Relations Programs to 
help facilitate human relations programs on Campus. 

8. Assisting units in publicizing the functions of EEEO Officers. 

9. Collecting pertinent information regarding hiring, upgrading and promo- 
tion opportunities within units and disseminating such information to 
appropriate personnel. 

D. The EEEO Officer shall have the full support of the unit administration, the 
Divisional administration and the Office of Human Relations Programs. The 
EEEO Officer shall be afforded reasonable time from other regular duties to 
perform the functions of the office. These functions shall qualify as part of a 
workday in the case of a staff member and as partial fulfillment of required 
committee loads in the case of faculty. The EEEO Officer shall be free from 
interference, coercion, harassment, discrimination or unreasonable re- 
straints in connection with the performance of the duties specified in this 
Code. 

Article VI Effective Date 

This Code shall be effective as of October 18, 1976, and shall apply only to 
those complaints alleging discriminatory acts which occurred on or after that 
date.

Undergraduate Admissions Requirements— Fall 1980 and 
Spring 1981 

The University of Maryland is a publicly-supported land grant institution 
dedicated primarily to the educational needs of Maryland residents. Within its 
responsibilities as a State facility, the University attracts a cosmopolitan student 
body, and each year offers admission to a number of promising men and women 
from other states and jurisdictions. Currently, 50 states, the District of Columbia, 2 
territories, and 95 foreign countries are represented in the undergraduate 
population. 

Undergraduate Admissions Requirements— Beginning 
Summer and Fall 1980 

Freshman Applicants— Maryland Residents 

At its November 1 7, 1 978 meeting, the Board of Regents of the University of 
Maryland adopted a new admissions policy which is applicable to persons 
applying as in-state freshmen for the summer and fall semesters of 1980 and 
thereafter. 

Requirements for transfer students and other special categories (e.g., 
concurrent enrollment, early admissions) will remain the same as those for the 
fall 1979 semester. 



Assured Admissions 

Students may earn assured admission by either of two means: 

1 . Those who rank in the upper four deciles of their high school class and have 
a minimum "C" (2.0) average in academic courses taken in 9th, 10th, and 
11th grades will be offered admission. 

2. Those who present a combination of SAT test scores and high school grade 
point averages which gives promise of success at the University will be 
admitted. The required combinations of scores and grade point averages 
are listed on the chart below:

Individual Admissions 

In addition, the Board authorized an individual admissions category which 
will allow 1 5% 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. 

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 
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 mid-year grades for the senior year in high school are available when an 
application is initially considered by the College Park admissions staff, they will be 
used in determining 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 examples of the types of 
courses the College Park Campus utilizes in computing the high school academic 
grade point average. 

English. Composition, Communications, Creative Writing, Conversational Lan- 
guage, Debate, Expressive Writing, Journalism, Language Arts, Literature, Public 
Speaking, Speech, World Literature.

History, World Civilization, World Cultures. 

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 school Equivalence Examination. Maryland residents who are at least 1 6 
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 
information. 

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 + ) 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 



Admission and Orientation 19 



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 Freshman Applicants 

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

The SAT examination is required of all freshman applicants. Test results 
must be submitted directly to the College Park Campus by the Educational 
Testing Service. The applicant are strongly urged to include his/her social 
security number when registering for the SAT. This will expedite processing of the 
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. 

SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE: Admission to the School of Architecture is 
competitive with selection based on previous academic achievement and is 
normally limited to students at the junior level. A small number of highly qualified 
freshman applicants may be admitted directly to the School. Freshman applicants 
who designate Architecture as a choice of curriculum, who are admissible to the 
University but are not eligible for admission directly to the School of Architecture, 
may be admitted as "pre-architecture." Such students are encouraged, however, 
to select an alternate major at the time of application. Applicants admitted to the 
School of Architecture as juniors will be selected from a variety of academic 
backgrounds with evaluation based on grade point average, courses taken, and a 
portfolio. Information concerning the specific requirements for admission to the 
School of Architecture may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions. 

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT: Effective the summer and fall, 
1979 semesters, admission to the College of Business and Management is 
competitive and normally limited to students at the Junior level. A small number 
of highly qualified freshman applicants may be admitted directly to the College. 
Freshman applicants who have designated a curriculum in Business and 
Management, and who are eligible for admission to the University will normally be 
offered admission as pre-business majors. Students may apply for admission to 
the College of Business and Management immediately prior to completion of the 
special requirements in effect for admission to the college, normally during the 
sophomore year. Information concerning the specific requirements for admission 
to the College of Business and Management may be obtained from the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions. 

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 School 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. 

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. 

Articulated Programs. An articulated transfer program is a list of community 
college courses which best prepare the applicant for a particular course of study 



at College Park. If the applicant takes appropriate courses which are specified in 
the articulated program guide, and earns an acceptable grade, he/she is 
guaranteed transfer with no loss of credit. 

Articulated career program guides help students plan their new programs 
after changing career objectives. 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 the applicant 
checks this guide he/she 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 regionally 
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 
appropriate scores on the following examinations: biology, chemistry, English, 
French, German, Spanish, American history, European history, Latin, mathemat- 
ics, 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 the 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 this catalog for information on additional credit by examination 
options. 

Transfer Students from Maryland Community Colleges. 

Currently, Maryland residents who attend Maryland public community 
colleges may be admitted in accordance with the criteria outlined in the general 
statement above. The University subscribes to the policies set forth in the 
Maryland State Board of Higher Education: Student Transfer Policy Statement. 

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. 

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 the 
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. 



20 Admission and Orientation 



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 comply 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 is competitive 
with selection based on previous academic achievement and is normally limited 
to students at the junior level. A small number of highly qualified freshman 
applicants may be admitted directly to the School. 

Transfer applicants who designate Architecture as a choice of curriculum, 
who are admissible to the University but are not eligible for admission directly to 
the School of Architecture, may be admitted as "pre-architecture." Such students 
are encouraged, however, to select an alternate major at the time of application. 

Applicants admitted to the School of Architecture as juniors will be selected 
from a variety of academic backgrounds with evaluation based on grade point 
average, courses taken, and a portfolio. 

Information concerning the specific requirements for admission to the 
School of Architecture may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate 
Admissions. 

College of Business and Management: Effective the summer and fall, 1979 
semesters, admission to the College of Business and Management is competitive 
and normally limited to students at the junior level. A small number of highly 
qualified freshman applicants may be admitted directly to the College. 

Transfer applicants who have designated a curriculum in Business and 
Management, and who are eligible for admission to the University but who will not 
have completed the special requirements for admission to the College, will 
normally be offered admission as pre-business majors. 

Students may apply for admission to the College of Business and Manage- 
ment immediately prior to completion of the special requirements in effect for 
admission to the College, normally during the sophomore year. 

Information concerning the specific requirements for admission to the 
College of Business and Management may be obtained from the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions. 

Minority Student Admission 

The Office of Equal Opportunity Recruitment (OEOR) is the primary 
recruitment arm for attracting minority students to the University. OEOR carries 
out its charge by making visitations to high schools, community colleges, and 
community organizations. The office facilitates the student's admission process 
and provides the student information 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 the applicant apply early to several other colleges or 
universities in the event the University is unable to offer him/her 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 Undei graduate 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 Tesf 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 arrival 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 admissi- 
ble 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-Professional Programs 

The College Park 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 
Collec,y Park Campus. Please address correspondence to the academic advisor 
of the specific pre-professional program to which the applicant is 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 Unviersity 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 more than 20 hours per week). When persons eligible for this Program apply 
for the Program and receive their 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 tor one or more courses for that 
session. Additional information may be obtained from the Office of Undergradu- 
ate Admissions. 

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. 



Admission and Orientation 21 



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 
observe 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 spring semester who 
wish to attend the first or second summer session must check with the 
Withdrawal/Re-enrollment Office regarding current policy for summer session. 

There are no deadlines for readmission or for reinstatement after an official 
withdrawal, but students are encouraged to apply early. (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. 

Applications. Application forms for readmission and reinstatement may be 
obtained from the Office of Withdrawal/Re-enrollment. 

Additional Information. For additional information contact the Withdrawal/Re- 
enrollment Office, North Administration Building, University of Maryland, College 
Park, Maryland 20742; (301) 454-2734. 

Student Transfer Policies 

The University of Maryland fully subscribes to the Maryland 
State Board for Higher Education Transfer Policies. A 
complete text of the policy follows. 

These Student Transfer Policies, developed by a special task force of the 
Segmental Advisory Committee, were adopted by the Maryland State Board for 
Higher Education on November 1, 1979. In view of the Board's sensitivity to the 
need of the institutions and segment boards to have sufficient lead time to make 
these policies operational, the new policies shall be effective and applicable to 
students enrolling in Maryland's public postsecondary education institutions in 
fall, 1980, and thereafter. At that time they will supersede SBHE student transfer 
policies in effect since 1972. 

Preamble 

The major objective of these policies is to relate in operational ways the 
undergraduate programs offered in the public sector of higher education in 
Maryland. These policies aim at equal treatment of native and transfer students. 
The effectiveness of these policies, since their promulgation in December 1972, 
has been confirmed by the minimal loss of credits experienced by students 
transferring within the public sector, by the apparent satisfaction of these 
students, and by the absence of appeals concerning the transferring of credits. 

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 permit 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 
measures of the effectiveness of the plan is maximum transferability of college 
level credits within the parameters of this agreement. Essentially, transfer and 
native students are to be governed by the same academic rules and regulations. 

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 experience. 

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

The dynamics of higher education preclude one-and-for-all time curricula 
and perpetual grading and retention systems. However, within the general 
structure of this plan there is opportunity for continual updating of the details. 

In more specific ways this document's purpose is (1) to recommend specific 
areas of agreement among the public two-year and four-year institutions of higher 
education pertaining to facilitating the transfer of students within these segments; 
(2) to provide for a continuous evaluation and review of programs, policies, 
procedures, and relationships affecting transfer of students; (3) to recommend 
such revisions as are needed to promote the academic success and general well- 
being of the transfer student, and (4) to provide a system for appeals. 

POLICIES 

1. Public four-year colleges and universities shall require attainment of an 
overall 2.0 average on a four-point scale by Maryland resident transfer 



students as one standard for admission. If the student has attended two or 
more institutions, the overall 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) Each public institution of higher education shall designate a person 
responsible for coordinating transferability to assist in accomplishing the 
policies and procedures outlined in this plan. The State Board for Higher 
Education will support requests by a public institution of higher educa- 
tion to establish the position of transfer coordinator. 

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

(c) Procedures for reporting the progress of students who transfer within 
the State shall be developed as one means of improving the counseling 
of prospective transfer students. 

2. Admission requirements and curriculum prerequisites shall be stated explic- 
itly in institutional publications. Students who enroll at Maryland Community 
Colleges shall be encouraged to complete the Associate in Arts degree or to 
complete 56 hours in a planned sequence of courses which relate to 
general education and the selection of a major before transfer. Subsequent 
graduation from the receiving four-year institution is not assured within a 
two-year period of full-time study. 

(a) Students from Maryland Community Colleges who were admissible to 
the four-year institution as high school seniors and who have attained an 
overall 2.0 average in college and university parallel courses shall be 
eligible for transfer at any time, regardless of the number of credits. 
Those students who have been awarded the Associate in Arts degree or 
who have successfully completed 56 hours of credit with an overall 2.0 
average, in either case in college and university parallel courses, shall 
not be denied transfer to an institution. If the number of students 
desiring admission exceeds the number that can be accommodated in a 
particular professional or specialized program or certain circumstances 
exist which require a limitation being placed on the size of an upper 
division program or on the total enrollment, admission will be on criteria 
developed and published by the receiving institution, which provides 
equal treatment for native and transfer students. 

(b) Course semester hour requirements which students must meet in order 
to transfer with upper division standing shall be clearly stated by the 
receiving institution. 

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

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 Board for Higher Education shall be 
admitted on the same basis as applicants from regionally accredited 
colleges. 

5. (a) 

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

(1) the credit is from a college or university parallel program; 

(2) the grades in the block of courses transferred average 2.0 or higher; 
and 

(3) the acceptance of the credit is consistent with the policies of the 
receiving institution governing students following the same program. 

(b) Credit for the CLEP general examinations will be considered for transfer 
only for scores at the 50th percentile, and above, of the combined 
national men-women sophomore norms. The exact number of credits 
awarded, if any, in transfer will be determined by the same regulations 
that pertain to native students in the receiving institution. The percentile 
needed to transfer credit for the CLEP subject examination will be 
determined by the receiving institution. Segmental/lnstitutional govern- 
ing boards shall submit to the State Board for Higher Education by 
December 1 st of each year data collected from the institutions concern- 
ing the credit given, minimum scores and equivalent courses of the 
CLEP subject examinations. This data will be distributed annually by the 
State Board for Higher Education to transfer advisors at all institutions. 
In order to facilitate the transfer of Advanced Placement and CLEP 
credit, the achievement score for Advanced Placement and the scaled 
score, percentile rank and the type of examinations (General or Subject) 
for the CLEP shall be reported on the transcript when credit is awarded. 

(c) The Associate in Arts degree shall serve 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. 

(d) 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. 



22 Fees & Expenses 



6. Transfer of credits from the following areas shall be consistent with the 
State minimum standards and shall be evaluated by the receiving institution 
on a course-by-course basis: 

(a) Courses from technical (career) programs. 

(b) Orientation courses. 

(c) Remedial courses. 

(d) Courses credited by a university or college which has no direct 
academic and administrative control over the students or the faculty 
involved in the courses. 

(e) Credit for work experiences. 

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

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

9. Institutions shall notify each other as soon as possible of impending 
curricular 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. 

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

11. The Segmental Advisory Committee shall continue to review articulation 
issues and shall recommend policy changes as needed to the State Board 
for Higher Education. 

12. In the event a transfer student believes he or she has not been accorded 
the consideration presented in this policy statement, the student 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/her evaluation of the situation to the institution from which the student 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 Segmental Advisory Committee through a written appeal to the State 
Board for Higher Education. The SAC shall receive relevant documentation, 
opinions and interpretations in written form from the sending and receiving 
institutions and from the student. The Segmental Advisory Committee will 
sent the written documentation to a pre-established articulation committee 
which, after review, will submit its recommendations to the Segmental 
Advisory Committee. 

Copies of the recommendation shall be forwarded by the State Board 
for Higher Education to the segments for distribution to the appropriate 
institutions. 

A complaint on transfer status must be initiated by the student within 
one calendar year of his/her enrollment in the receiving institution. 

Application Procedures 

Application Forms. Application forms may be obtained by writing to: Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions, North Administration Building, University of Mary-

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

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

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

The volume of requests for reclassification may necessitate a delay in 
completing the review process. It is hoped that a decision in each case will be 
made within ninety (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. 

Petitions for review of eligibility, related documents and questions concern- 
ing 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) 
454-4137. 

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 writing 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 responsibili- 
ty 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 



Fees & Expenses 23 



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 1103, 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 bill 
mailed prior to the beginning of each semester may not include these deductions. 

Students will be severed from University services for delinquent indebted- 
ness 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 Services 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. 

NOTE: Additional Information on Student Financial Obligations; Disclosure of 
Information; Delinquent Accounts; and Special Fees, can be found on page 6.

Prior to Classes beginning: 100% 

After Classes begin: 

Between one and two weeks 80% 

Between two and three weeks 60% 

Between three and four weeks 40% 

Between four and five weeks 20% 

Over five weeks No Refund 

PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES, if a full-time undergraduate student 
drops a course or courses, thereby changing the total number of credits for which 
the student is reregistered to eight or less, charges for the semester will be 
assessed on the basis of the per credit hour fee for part-time students. However, 
if the student later adds a course or courses thereby changing the total number of 
credits for which the student is registered to nine or more, the student will be 
billed for the difference between per credit hour fees paid and the general fees 
for full-time undergraduates. 

If during the FIRST FIVE DAYS OF CLASSES a full-time undergraduate 
drops a course or courses thereby changing the total number of credits for which 
he/she is registered to eight or less, charges for the semester will be assessed 
on the basis of part-time charges plus 20% of the difference between the full-time 
fees and appropriate part-time charges. After the first five days of classes, there 
is no refund for changing from full-time to part-time status. 

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 
scholarships and loans from University Funds, the computation will be made to 
return the maximum amount to the scholarship and loan accounts without loss to 
the University. 

A student who registers as a part-time undergraduate student will be given 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 wiH 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 
scholarships and loans from University Funds, the computation will be made to 
return the maximum amount to the scholarship and loan accounts without loss to 
the University. 

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 Maryland, 
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 Commit- 
tee. 

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 1 2 hours are required to retain a scholarship or grant award, the 
student who maintains such a level will not graduate in the 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 

Most 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 scholarship. 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 May 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 Maryland has created 
several programs of scholarships for Maryland 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 entering 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

opportunities.

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 April 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 available each academic year. The loan is cancelled at the rate of 
25 percent per year of full-time employment in criminal 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 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 materials 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. 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 29 



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 with 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. 

Smoking in Classrooms 

It is University policy that smoking in classrooms is prohibited at all times. Any 
student has the hght to remind the instructor of this policy at any time during 
class. Department chairpersons are responsible for assuring that all instructors 
are informed of the policy and for monitoring compliance. 

The University Studies Program 

Virtually all American colleges and universities ask that students receiving a 
degree complete a common set of requirements. These common requirements 
are usually referred to by the generic term "general education." General 
education requirements represent a faculty's definition of the knowledge, 
awareness, and skills that all graduates should possess before that faculty will 
give its consent to the awarding of a degree. General education is that portion of 
the degree requirements in which the entire faculty has a concern. 

The University Studies Program is the general education requirement at the 
University of Maryland, College Park. This program must be completed by all 
students beginning baccalaureate study after May, 1980. It is intended to provide 
students with the intellectual skills and conceptual background basic to an 
understanding of the universe, society and themselves. The focus is not on any 
particular bodies of knowledge, for almost any subject matter can lead to an 
awareness of general modes of understanding the world. Thus, for example, it 
does not matter whether the student studies physics or botany as long as he or 
she comes away from the course with some understanding of the power of the 
empirical investigation that characterizes science. 

The University Studies Program has three parts. The "Fundamental 
Studies" section of the program is intended to establish the student's ability to 
participate in the discourse of the university through demonstrated mastery of 
written English and mathematics. These requirements are to be completed early 
in the student's program in order to serve as a foundation for subsequent work. 

The "Distributive Studies" requirement is intended, through study in 
particular disciplines, to acquaint students with the different ways of analyzing 
and talking about the world that characterize the three areas into which the 
university's knowledge is traditionally divided: the physical and biological sci- 
ences, the social and behavioral sciences, and the arts and humanities. The 
fourth category, "History and Culture," includes courses that lead to the 
consideration of historical and cultural differences and the relationship of our own 
society to those of other times and places. 

During the 1980-81 academic year, an "Advanced Studies" requirement of 
six credit hours will be defined. While the specific form of this requirement has not 
been finally determined, it is expected that it will include only courses offered at 
300- and 400-level (upper division) and that students will have to have reached 
junior standing (56 cr. hrs. completed) before being elgible to enroll in these 
courses. "Advanced Studies" work will ask students to consider and apply their 
knowledge in broad contexts and in ways that require a higher level of intellectual 
sophistication. 

The University Studies requirements, designed to be spread throughout the 
student's four years, represent a third of the total academic work required for 
graduation. It is the purpose of this program, in combination with the extensive 
work of the major, to help prepare students to become productive, aware and 
sensitive members of society, capable of understanding their world and the many 
kinds of people in it and of taking responsibility for their own decisions and their 
own lives. 



Outline of the Program 

These requirements are effective for students beginning baccalaureate 
study in May, 1980 or thereafter.

Courses to meet these requirements may be chosen from a list designated 
by the University Studies Committee as suitable for satisfying each of the 
requirements (See the Schedule of Classes for this list.) 

General University Requirements 

Students who began baccalaureate study prior to May, 1 980 may elect to 
complete these requirements rather than the University Studies Program require- 
ments (see above). 

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 48.) 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: 6-12 hours elected in the Divisions of Agricultural and Life 
Sciences; Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Engineering. Area B: 6-12 
hours in the Divisions of Behavioral and Social Sciences; Human and Community 
Resources. Area C: 6-12 hours in the Division of Arts and Humanities. 

In meeting these area requirements, students may choose from among any 
undergraduate courses for which they are qualified. The students may select 
either the pass-fail or letter grading option for these courses as outlined on page 
32. 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. 

NOTE: Students who began baccalaureate study after May, 1978 must complete 
the English composition requirement specified in the Fundamental Studies 
section of the University Studies Program (see above). Only three hours of this six 
hour requirement may be used to satisfy General University Requirements. 
Students who entered the University prior to June, 1973 have the option of 
completing requirements under the former General Education Program rather 



30 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



than the new General University Requirements. Each student is responsible tor 
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— before 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 registration period will 
not appear on the student's permanent record. Courses may be added, 
where space is available, during this period and will appear on the student's 
permanent record along with other courses previously listed. After this 
schedule adjustment period, courses may not be added without special 
permission of the 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 Records and Registrations. 
No student is permitted to attend a class if his or her name does not appear 
on the class list. Instructors must report discrepancies to the Office of 
Records and Registrations. At the end of the semester, the Office of 
Records and Registrations issues to each department official grade lists. 
The instructors mark the final grades on the grade lists, sign the lists and 
return them to the Office of Records and 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 rule applies to off-Campus 
registration or registration in the summer school of another institution. 

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

7. In all cases of transfer from one division to another on the College Park 
Campus, the provost of the receiving division, with the approval of the 
student, shall indicate which courses, if any, in the student's previous 
academic program are not applicable to his or her new program, and shall 
notify the Office of Records and 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 "nonapplica- 
ble" 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 carried at all times. 



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 Records and Registrations (454-5365). 

Veterans Benefits 

Students attending the University under the Veterans Education Assistance 
Act may receive assistance and enrollment certification at the Veterans Certifica- 
tion Office on the 1st floor of the North Administration Building. The staff is 
available to assist regarding monthly educational assistance checks as well as 
other benefits such as tutoring assistance, vocational rehabilitation services and 
educational loans. Telephone: 454-3430. 

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,

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 period. The student is 
expected to devote three hours a week in classroom or laboratory or in outside 
preparation for each credit hour in any course. 

In order for an undergraduate student to complete most curricula in four 
academic years, 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. 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 examinations. 
2. It is the policy of the University to excuse the absences of students that 
result from religious observances and to provide without penalty for the 
rescheduling of examinations that fall on religious holidays. Examinations 
and tests may not be scheduled on Rosh Hashannah, Yom Kippur, or Good 
Friday. An instructor is not under obligation to give a student a make-up 
examination unless the absence was caused by illness, religious observ- 
ance 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 arrangements. 
The make-up examination must be at a time and place mutually agreeable to 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 31 



the instructor and student, cover only the material for which the student was 
originally responsible, and be given within a time limit that retains currency 
of the material. The make-up must not interfere with the student's regularly 
scheduled classes in the event that a group of students require the same 
make-up examination; one make-up time may be scheduled at the conven- 
ience of the instructor and the largest possible number of students involved. 
Under the same guidelines students shall have equal access to all 
information and drills missed due to the reasons listed. 

3. 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. 

4. 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. 

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

6. 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. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17. 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. 

19. 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. 

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

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

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

Academic Dishonesty 

All forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited by the Code of Student 
Conduct and may result in a severe sanction, including expulsion from the 
University. Specific definitions of cheating, plagiarism and fabrication are set forth 
in the Code and should be carefully reviewed by all students. 



Irregularities in Examinations 

Students who for any reason have a question concerning 
what may be considered plagiarism 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 provost 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 
charges, 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 
Dishonesty. 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. 

Marking System 

1. The following symbols are used on the student's permanent record for all 
courses in which he or she is enrolled after the initial registration and 
schedule adjustment period: A. B, C. D, F, I, P, S, and W. These marks 
remain as part of the student's permanent record and may 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 



32 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



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 course has been qualitatively satisfactory, 
when, because of illness or other circumstances beyond the student's 
control, he or she has been unable to complete some small portion of the 
work of the course. In no case will the mark I be recorded for a student who 
has not completed the major portion of the work of the course. 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. 
These arrangements must be documented in an Incomplete Contract signed 
by the instructor and the student. Exceptions to the time period cited in the 
contract may be granted by the student's dean or provost upon the written 
request of the student if circumstances warrant further delay. If the 
instructor is unavailable, the department chairperson will, upon request of 
the student, make appropriate arrangements for the student to complete the 
course requirements. It is the responsibility of the instructor or department 
chairperson concerned to return the appropriate supplementary grade 
report to the Office of Records and 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 Records 
and Registrations. The Office of Registrations will promptly notify the 
instructor that the student has withdrawn from the course. 

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

Pass-Fail Option 

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

2. Certain divisional requirements, major requirements or field of concentration 
requirements do not allow the use of the Pass-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 Records and Registrations to the grade P on the 
student's permanent record. The grade F will remain as given. The choice of 
grading option may be changed only during the schedule adjustment period 
for courses in which the student is currently registered. 

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 CLEP (College Level 
Examination Program) examinations are available, they may be used. 
Students who desire to determine which courses may be taken by 
examination should consult the Undergraduate Advising Center. 

2. Any student may take a course by examination by obtaining an application 
form from the Director, Special Advising Programs, paying the requisite fees, 
and taking the examination at a time mutually agreeable to the student and 
the department offering the course. 



3. The applicant must be formally admitted to the University of 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 Office of Records and Registrations that copies of the examination 
questions or identifying information in the case of standardized examina- 
tions and the student's answers have been filed with the chairman of the 
department offering the course. 

5. Letter grades earned on examinations to establish credit (if accepted by the 
student) are entered on the student's transcript 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 authorities to 
ascertain his or her standing in this respect. For this purpose the student 
should be sure to preserve the copy of the semester grade report issued by 
the Office of 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 1 2 semester hours required in the major field (in curricula 
requiring such concentration). All candidates for degrees should plan to take 
their senior year in residence since the advanced work of their major study 
normally occurs in the last year of the undergraduate course. At least 24 of 
the last 30 credits must be done in residence at the College Park Campus; 
i.e., a student who at the time of graduation will have completed 30 
semester hours in residence may be permitted to do not more than 6 
semester hours of the final 30 credits of record in another institution, 
provided written permission is secured in advance from the dean or provost. 
The student must be enrolled in the program from which he or she plans to 
graduate when registering for the last 15 credits of the program. These 
requirements apply also to the third year of pre-professional combined- 
degree programs. 

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

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

5. A student who wishes to receive simultaneously two baccalaureate degrees 
from the University of Maryland, College Park, must satisfactorily complete a 
minimum of 150 credits (161 credits if one of the degrees is the B.Arch. 
degree in the School of Architecture). The regularly prescribed requirements 
of both degree programs must be completed. As early as possible and in 
any case no later than the beginning of the second semester before the 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 33 



expected dale 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 
Minimum 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 offers the most effective opportunity open to all 
students to gain a developing command of the concepts and materials of 
their course of study. However, attendance in class, in and of itself, is not a 
criterion for the evaluation of the student's degree of success or failure. 
Furthermore, absences (whether excused or unexcused) do not alter what is 
expected of the student qualitatively and quantitatively. Except as provided 
below, absences will not be used in the computation of grades, and the 
recording of student absences will not be required of the faculty. 

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

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

4. Special provision for freshmen: the freshman year is a transitional year. 
Absences of freshmen in the basic freshman courses will be reported to the 
student's dean or division officer when the student^as 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. 

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. 

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. 

Readmission and Reinstatement 

See page 21 for information regarding deadlines. 

Readmission 

1. A student whose continuous attendance at the University has been 
interrupted, but who was in good academic standing or on academic 



probation, at the end of the last regular semester for which he or she was 
registered, must apply to the Withdrawal/Re-enrollment Office for Readmis- 
sion. 

2. Academic, Financial, Judicial and Health Clearances may be required in 
some cases. (Academic Clearance could include requiring transcripts from 
another school if it is judged to be necessary). 

3. Any student who was previously admitted to the University and did not 
register for that semester must apply for ADMISSION. Also, any student 
who was previously admitted to the University, registered, but cancelled the 
only registration, must apply for ADMISSION. 

Reinstatement 

1 . A student who withdraws from the University must apply for reinstatement to 
the Withdrawal/Reenrollment Office. The applications are subject to review 
by the Faculty Petition Board. 

2. A student who has been dismissed for academic reasons must file an 
application for reinstatement. Applications may be filed the semester 
immediately following the dismissal. All applications are reviewed by the 
Faculty Petition Board whose members are empowered to grant reinstate- 
ment to the University if the circumstances warrant such action. 

3. Academic, Financial, Judicial, and Health Clearances may be required in 
some cases. Transcripts will be required from any school attended during 
the period between their withdrawal or dismissal and their reinstatement. 

4. A student who has been dismissed from the University for academic 
reasons and whose petition for reinstatement is denied may apply for 
reinstatement any subsequent semester. It is recommended that the 
student give serious consideration to the previous recommendations of the 
Faculty Petition Board. 

5. Application forms for readmission, reinstatement and withdrawals may be 
obtained from the Withdrawal/Reenrollment Office in Room 1130, North 
Administration Building. 

Minimum Requirements for Retention and Graduation 

1. A minimum of 120 credits of successfully completed (not i, F, or W) course 
credits is required for graduation in any degree curriculum. [See Degree 
Requirements and Credit by Examination above.) Credits transferred, or 
earned during prior admissions terminating in academic dismissal or 
withdrawal and followed by readmission, will be applicable toward meeting 
credit requirements for a degree. (See Readmission and Reinstatement 
above-) 

2. A full-time student will be placed on academic probation at the end of any 
semester in which he or she does not achieve a total of 24 quality points for 
that semester, except that he or she will not be placed on academic 
probation for this reason if he or she earns at least 18 quality points on a 
registration (at the end of the schedule adjustment period) of 9 credits, 20 
quality points on a registration of 10 credits, or 22 quality points on a 
registration of 11 credits. Exceptions are also allowed for all full-time 
students in their first semester of registration on the College Park Campus, 
who must earn at least 18 quality points for that semester. This exception 
does not apply to students who have earned more than 8 credits through 
previous registration in the University. 

3. Any student, full- or part-time, who fails to maintain a minimum cumulative 
average of 1.95 at the end of any semester following that in which the total 
of credits completed at the College Park Campus (with grades A, B, C, D, P, 
S or F), plus any credits transferred, is 45 credits, will be placed on 
academic probation. Credits completed with grades of A, B, C, D, and F, but 
not S, P, or I will be used in the computation of the cumulative average. The 
1.95 requirement applies to first semester transfer students who transfer 45 
or more credits. 

4. A student who does not meet the academic standards for any given 
semester will be placed on probation and must display acceptable perform- 
ance in quality points and cumulative average (if applicable) during the next 
semester in order to regain good academic standing. A student will be 
dismissed at the end of the second consecutive, or fourth total, semester of 
unacceptable performance. Courses for which the mark W is recorded are 
excluded from all such computations of cumulative average. 

5. A student who has been academically dismissed and who is reinstated will 
be academically dismissed again if he or she does not meet the academic 
standards for any two additional semesters after return. In the computation 
of the cumulative average after return, all credits earned at the University of 
Maryland will be used. 

6. When a student is placed on academic probation or is academically 
dismissed, the action shall be entered on the student's official and 
permanent record. 

7. Any course may be repeated, but if a student repeats a course in which he 
or she has already earned a mark of A, B, C, D, P or S, the subsequent 
attempt shall not increase the total hours earned toward the degree. Only 
the higher mark will be used in computation of the student's cumulative 
average. However, the student's quality points in a given semester shall be 
determined by that semester's grades. 



34 Administrative Offices 



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

Athletics 

The Department of Athletics is responsible for directing intercollegiate 
athletic programs for both women and men. 

Women's intercollegiate athletic teams include cross country, field hockey, 
and volleyball in the fall; basketball swimming, indoor track, and gymnastics

Office of Human Relations Programs 

The Human Relations Office (HRO) is responsible for initiating action in 
compliance with campus, state, and federal affirmative action directives designed 
to provide equal education and employment opportunities for College Park 
students and employees. Acting directly for the Chancellor, the HRO performs a 
campus-wide monitoring function relative to federal, state and locally mandated 
compliance activity. The office coordinates the equity activities of the Offices of 
Vice-Chancellors and Provosts, who are designated by the Chancellor to be 
responsible for the local implementation of equal opportunity programs for 
students and employees. Such programs include desegregation, Title IX and Reg. 
#504 efforts for the handicapped and are designed to benefit both undergradu- 
ate and graduate students. 

Equity officers, who assist the Vice Chancellor and Provosts, directly 
supervise local unit equity efforts as well as the grievance settlement activities of 
unit Equal Education and Employment Opportunities (Triple EO) Officers. 

The HRO designs and conducts workshops, forums, discussion groups and 
training sessions. It undertakes organizational development activities and is 
responsible for documenting and analyzing equity trends and recommending 
appropriate action to the Chancellor and Campus Senate. The office negotiates 
informal complaints settlements according to procedures set forth in the Campus 
Human Relations Code. It also serves an appellate function in formal grievance 
proceedings. 

The HRO maintains a liaison relationship with the Campus Senate through 
the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations. 

Office of University Relations 

The Office of University Relations has responsibility for the official campus 
public information program including publications and media relations as well as 
campus efforts in fund raising and alumni affairs. The office, which reports to the

with the Vehicle Registration Office regardless of ownership, except as 
noted in Regulation 2c. All student vehicles must be registered in the 
name of the student who is the legal operator of the vehicle. 

b. Student vehicles must be registered for the current academic year 
during the applicable registration period. A registration charge will be 
made for each vehicle. This fee cannot be refunded.

each additional vehicle $3.00 

All registrations will expire on the next following August 31. Proof of 
ownership or legal control will be required for multiple registrations. 
Students applying for registration of additional vehicles must present the 
State vehicle registration and the University of Maryland registration 
number of their initially registered vehicle for the current academic year.

due to damaged bumper of a registered vehicle or because of a 
replacement for a registered vehicle. Remnants of stickers to be 
replaced must be turned in at the Motor Vehicle Registration Desk.

be prohibited from operating a motor vehicle on the College Park 
Campus, and from registering a vehicle under provisions of these 
regulations, except with special permission. Details are available at the 
Motor Vehicle Administration Office. 

d. Vehicle registration in no way guarantees a convenient parking space. 
The fact that all parking spaces convenient to any specific location are 
filled is not an acceptable excuse for parking violations. Parking Area 4 
is overflow space for all student parking areas. Any registered student 
vehicle operators who are unable to find spaces in their assigned area 
may park in Area 4 at any time without penalty. Supervisory personnel in 
the MVA Office are available to discuss parking problems with any

vehicle registered. All vehicles must display permits for the current 
school year after September 30 of each year. Permit decals must be 
permanently applied on windshield and rear window of vehicle. 

f. Vehicle registration is required for control purposes. Vehicle registration 
does not necessarily insure that parking space will be available. Only 
one set of parking permits for each vehicle is authorized. 

g. Student vehicles are not considered officially registered until permits are 
permanently affixed on driver's side of front and rear bumpers or on 
metal plates affixed to license plates, plainly visible.

Health Center 

The University Health Center is located on Campus Drive directly across the 
street from the Student Union. Undergraduate and graduate students who have 
paid the health fee are eligible for care at the Health Center. Services provided 
include both urgent and routine medical care, mental health, health education, 
laboratory, X-ray, and gynecological services. Specific hours of service are listed 
in the Health Center brochure. 

Students can best be seen by telephoning the Health Center for an 
appointment, and "walk-in" patients may encounter a longer waiting period that 
students who have made an appointment. However, any one who is injured or 
seriously ill will always receive highest priority, with appropriate referral to local 
health care facilitiess at his/her own expense. 

While students become eligible for care at the Health Center upon payment 
of the health fee, charges are made for certain laboratory tests, X-rays, casts, 
and allergy injections. 

It should also be noted that the mandatory health fee is not a form of health 
insurance. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that each student maintain 
some type of health insurance coverage. Recognizing that many family medical 
plans do not provide coverage for college age students, the University has 



Office of Student Affairs 37 



negotiated with a local insurance company to provide a voluntary comprehensive 
student health insurance policy tor illnesses and accidents. This policy provides 
benefits for hospital, surgery, emergencies, laboratory, X-ray, and limited cover- 
age for mental and nervous disorders. 

For further information, call 454-3444; appointments 454-4923; Mental

Judicial Programs 

General Policy 

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

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

General Statement of Student Responsibility 

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

Judicial Programs Office 

The Judicial Programs Office directs the efforts of students and staff 
members in matters involving student discipline. The responsibilities of the office 
include: 1) determination of the disciplinary charges to be filed against individual 
students or groups of students; 2) interviewing and advising parties involved in 
disciplinary proceedings; 3) supervising, training and advising the various judicial 
boards; 4) reviewing the decisions of the judicial boards; 5) maintenance of all 
student disciplinary records; 6) collection and dissemination of research and 
analysis concerning student conduct. 

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

Disciplinary Procedures 

Students accused of violating University regulations are accorded funda- 
mental due process in disciplinary proceedings. Formal rules of evidence, 



however, shall not be applicable, nor shall deviations from prescribed procedures 
necessarily invalidate a decision or proceeding, unless significant prejudice to 
one of the parties may result. 

Orientation— Maryland Preview 

Upon admission to the University, the students will receive materials about 
Maryland Preview, a program sponsored by the Office of Orientation. The primary 
purposes of the program are to provide new students with a general orientation to 
the University, and to coordinate their academic advisement and course 
registration. During the program students have the opportunity to interact formally 
and informally with faculty, administrators, undergraduate student advisors and 
other new students. 

Freshmen students may elect to attend a one-day or two-day program. 
Programs for freshmen are offered during the months of June, July, August and 
January. 

Transfer students are encouraged to attend a one-day program offered 
during the months of July, August, November, January and April. 

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

Religious Programs 

A broad range of religious traditions is represented by the several chaplains 
and religious advisors at the University. Individually and cooperatively, they offer 
many services including counseling, worship, student opportunities here and 
abroad, personal growth groups, and opportunities for service and involvement. 
Office locations: University Memorial Chapel and 2108J North Administration 
Building. Telephone: 454-5783. 

Resident Life 

On-campus housing in the 36 undergraduate residence halls provides clean, 
safe accommodations which are nearest faculty and the academic, cultural, 
social and recreational resources of the campus. Single-sex and coeducational 
lifestyles are available in the halls, which accommodate from 35 to 550 residents. 
Traditional residence halls and apartment suites for four or six students are 
available. 

No student may be required to live on campus. Once accommodated, a 
student may remain in residence halls throughout the undergraduate career. 
Residence halls are reserved for single, full-time undergraduates. An application 
is required, and is made available to each student upon or soon after admission 
to the College Park Campus. Accommodations are limited. Most of the 8,100 
available spaces each year are reserved by returning upperclasspersons. The 
number of entering students from whom applications are received each year 
exceeds the approximately 3,000 spaces which remain. Applicants who cannot 
be accommodated at the start of classes each fall semester are placed in 
residence halls throughout the academic year as vacancies are identified. Soon 
after application is made for housing services, each student is informed of the 
likelihood of securing accommodations for the start of classes and the advisabil- 
ity of considering other housing alternatives. 

The Department of Resident Life is responsible for administering manage- 
ment functions and cultural, educational, recreational, rights and responsibilities, 
and social programming in the residence halls. A staff of full-time, graduate and 
undergraduate employees in each of five residential communities where the halls 
are clustered help to insure community programming, physical environment and 
administrative needs are met. These staff work with other Campus and State 
agencies to provide services and programs in accord with University and State 
expectations. 

Inquires should be directed to Information Services, 31 16 North Administra- 
tion Building, Department of Resident Life, University of Maryland, College Park,

Maryland Student Union 

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

The Union was built and furnished without the help of state or federal funds 
and is operated as a self supporting facility, drawing its income from revenue 
producing areas and student fees.

Office of Academic Affairs 

Office of Academic Services 

Academic Services is a clustering of several offices, within the Office of the 
Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, consisting of Undergraduate Admissions, 
Student Aid, Academic Data Systems, Equal Opportunity Recruitment, Interna- 
tional Education Services, and Records and Registrations.

The services offered by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions are 
designed to meet the individual needs of both prospective and enrolled students. 
For prospective students, the office provides general information about the 
College Park campus in the form of letters, personal interviews, and campus 
tours. It also evaluates the applications of both freshman and transfer students to 
select qualified students. Services for enrolled students include determining 
students' eligibility for in-state status; acting as a liaison with the academic 
departments for the evaluation of transfer credits, advanced placement, and 
CLEP scores; and providing any additional general information requested by 
enrolled students. Please refer to page 00 for more information concerning 
undergraduate admission. 

Office location: Lower level, North Administration Building. Telephone: 454-

assistance and student employment opportunities, primarily based on the need of 



the applicant. The staff of the office is available for individual counseling on 
matters pertinent to the financial planning of the student body. 

See page for more detailed information on opportunities for financial 
assistance. Office location: Room 2130, North Administration Building. 

Equal Opportunity Recruitment 

The Office of Equal Opportunity Recruitment (OEOR) is the primary 
recruitment arm for attracting minority students to the University. OEOR carries 
out its charge by making visitations to high schools, community colleges, and 
community organizations. The office facilitates the student's admission process 
and provides the student information 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. 

International Education Services 

International students and faculty receive a wide variety of services 
designed to help them benefit from their experience in the United States. 
International Education Services works very closely with the Office of Undergrad- 
uate Admissions. Other services provided to the prospective student include 
special advisement and orientations, help with securing housing, information 
about programs of special international interest, and assistance with the forms 
that are required for compliance with immigration and other governmental 
regulations. 

Study Abroad Office. American students and faculty receive advisement and 
information about study, travel and work in other countries. Returning students 
may obtain assistance with transfer credits, reenrollment, pre-registration and 
housing. 

The Office of International Education Services is located in Room 2115, 
North Administration Building. Telephone: 454-3043. 

Records and Registrations 

This office provides services to students and academic departments related 
to the processes of registration, scheduling, withdrawal, reenrollment, and 
graduation. The office also maintains the student's academic records, and issues 
transcripts. Telephone: 454-5559. Staff members are available to students for 
consultation. Location: Registration counter, 1st floor, North Administration 
Building. 

Office of the Administrative Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies 

General. The Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies has overall 
responsibility for undergraduate advisement on the departmental, college and 
divisional levels. The office maintains the Undergraduate Advisement Center with 
a staff of advisors for students who have not yet decided upon a major. Advisors 
are likewise available for students interested in pre-professional preparation for 
medicine, dentistry and law. Transfer or handicapped students with special 
academic problems may also be advised through the office. 

This office supervises a number of special academic programs, including the 
Bachelor of General Studies Degree Program, the General Honors Program and 
the Individual Studies Program. The office interprets and enforces academic 
requirements and regulations for undergraduates and administers the program of 
Credit by Examination. 

Academic service components of this office include the Career Develop- 
ment Center, and the Office of Experiental Learning Programs (Cooperative 
Education, internships, volunteer programs (PACE). 

The Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies is located in Room 1115 
of the Undergraduate Library. 

Career Development Center 

General. The Career Development Center (CDC) supports and assists students 
from all departments in early and systematic consideration of career questions 
and concerns: What are my interests, skills and values? What career areas are 
consistent with these characteristics? How do I select a career objective? Once 
decided, what are effective strategies in securing a job or graduate school 
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 
and career early will be in the best position to place themselves in a meaningful 
and rewarding position upon leaving the University of Maryland. The Career 
Development Center is located in Rooms 3112, 3114 and 3121 of the 
Undergraduate Library. Phone: 454-2813/14. 

Career Development Center Programs and Services 

Course: EDCP 108D & L, M, N, O. P— Career Planning and Decision Making. This 
course emphasizes the learning of the life long process of career planning. 



Office of Academic Affairs 39 



Assignments are chosen to facilitate self and career exploration, to teach 
effective decision-making applicable to college majors, career and future life and 
to develop job seeking skills. 

Placement Manual and Handouts. The Placement Manual provides detailed, 
comprehensive information regarding the services offered by the Career Devel- 
opment Center. Career planning, job seeking strategies including resume writing 
and interviewing techniques are discussed and employers taking part in the On- 
Campus Recruiting Program are listed. There are also numerous handouts, 
available to all students, covering a wide variety of career planning areas as well 
as "CAREER DEVELOPMENTS"— a regular newsletter listing job openings and 
discussing career topics. 

Credentials Service. Credentials are a student's permanent professional record 
which must be filed with the Career Development Center by all senior education 
majors prior to graduation. Credentials also may be filed by any student or 
alumnus to be used in graduate school application, job search or a future career 
change. 

On-Campus Recruiting Program. Each year (500-600) employers and graduate 
school representatives come to campus to interview interested students who are 
within two semesters of graduation. 

Career Library. The Career Library is a fundamental resource for career 
exploration, decision-making, graduate school planning and job seeking. It 
contains comprehensive reference material on all aspects of work, education, 
and career exploration, as well as listings of job vacancies, employer and 
graduate school information and job seeking guides. 

Career Counselors. Each Career Counselor at the Career Development Center 
provides active liaison with a UMCP Academic Division including Arts and 
Humanities; Agricultural and Life Sciences; Mathematics, Physical Sciences and 
Engineering; Behavioral and Social Sciences and Human and Community 
Resources. There is also a counselor for Undecided, Pre-professional, Individual 
and General Studies students. 

Group Programs and Campus Wide Events. Group programs on a wide variety of 
career development topics run continuously in CDC. Choosing a major, Job 
Seeking Skills, The Summer Job Search, Orientation to 0. C. R. P. and Interview 
Preparation are examples. Campus-wide programs including Camp Day, Career 
Week Seminars Employers Forum and Graduate/ Professional School Day and 
Job Fair bring students and representatives together for information exchange 
and contact. 

Office of Experiential Learning Programs 

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

Cooperative Education Program in Liberal Arts and Business. This program 
allows students to alternate semesters of on-campus study with semesters of full- 
time paid work experience in business, industry, or government. To be eligible, a 
student must have completed 36 semester hours of undergraduate work with a 
2.0 grade point average, or to be enrolled as a graduate student. While positions 
are competitive, and while opportunities are greatest in technical fields, many 
placements are available in areas of traditional liberal arts study. 

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. 



Degree Programs 

Two undergraduate majors are directly administered by the Assistant Dean 
for Undergraduate Studies: General Studies and Individual Studies. Both are 
designed to provide an alternative academic structure for students whose 
educational interests, process, or goals do not readily coincide with the 
requirements of an existing departmental major. Both programs are particularly 
appropriate for transfers, older students, and others whose past credits/or 
current interests span several fields of study. 

The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) program permits students to obtain 
an education in a broad range of disciplines. Course selection is flexible, but there 
are limitations on the number of credits allowed from any one department and 
division. 

The Individual Studies Program is for students with a clearly defined, well- 
focussed area of interest which crosses departmental lines. The proposed major 
must be outlined in detail and accepted by a faculty review committee. 

More information on both programs can be found under "Additional Campus 
Programs" in this catalog or from the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies, 1115 Undergraduate Library, 454-2530/31. 

Bachelor of General Studies 
Minority Student Education 

The Office of Minority Student Education was officially created on July 1, 
1972, as a result of proposals and recommendations submitted to the chancellor 
from the Campus Black Community and the Study Commission on Student Life. It 
is responsible for addressing the needs of minority students during their 
experience at the University of Maryland. This responsibility takes the Office of 
Minority Student Education through a broad range of concerns, from the 
introduction of minority 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 minority students with meaningful career 
advisement in areas that offer both good job opportunities and good salaries. For 
general program information, contact Director, Office of Minority Student Educa- 
tion, 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 job opportunities before choosing; some may 
be considering several possible majors; some are trying out a variety 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 services. 

Other Services 

Pre-Professional 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.

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 offerings 
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 during a semester following probation, and various 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 writing to meet with an advisor. This meeting is for the express purpose 
of reviewing the student's progress toward the degree and, at a minimum, 
requires the advisor to detail, in writing, all coursework yet to be completed in 
fulfillment of the degree requirements. 

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



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 ol 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. 

General Assistance — giving assistance to a lot of students with different kinds 
of problems and concerns. Undergraduate Advisement Center, Room 3151, 
Undergraduate Library, Phone 454-2733 or 454-3040; Pre-Professional Pro-

CLEP/Advanced Placement, 454-2731. 

Undergraduate Degree Programs 

One major advantage of attending a university campus is the broad range of 
programs available. This diversity allows the student to change from one major to 
another without leaving the institution, to choose from a wide spectrum of elective 
courses, and to benefit from daily contact with students of diverse academic 
interests and backgrounds.

Honors Programs 

A number of special 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 approximately 30 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. 

Many 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- 
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, Special 
Advising Programs, Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 3151, Undergraduate 
Library, College Park Campus (Phone: 454-2733). 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- 
arrangement is made. Seniors who wish to take advantage of this opportunity 
must formally apply for admission to the Graduate School. 

Study Abroad. The Study Abroad Office provides advisement and information 
about study, travel and work in other countries. Further information may be 
obtained through the Office of International Education Services, Room 2115, 
North Administration Building. Telephone: 454-3043. 

Honor Societies. Students who excel in scholarship and leadership may be 
invited to join the appropriate honor society. These include the following:

Commencement Honors. Honors for excellence in scholarship, determined 
from the cumulative grade point average, are awarded to not more than ten 
percent (10%) of the graduating class in each degree granting unit. Summa Cum 
Laude is offered to the highest two percent (2%). Magna Cum Laude to the next 
three percent (3%) and Cum Laude to the next five percent (5%). To be eligible 
for this recognition, a total of at least 60 semester credits earned at the University 
of Maryland is required. Of these 60 credits, at least 30 credits must have been 
earned at the College Park Campus. The computation of the cumulative grade 
point average does not include grades for courses taken during the last semester

confidential recommendations. Such recommendations will be used only

opportunity to seek correction of their education records. 

A. Request to Correct Records 

A student who believes that information contained in his or her 
education records is inaccurate, misleading, or violative of privacy or 
other rights may submit a written request to the Office of Registrations 
specifying the document(s) being challenged ana the basis for the 
complaint. The request will be sent to the person responsible for any 
amendments to the record in question. Within a reasonable period of 
time of receipt of the request, the University will decide whether to 
amend the records in accordance with the request. If the decision is to 
refuse to amend, the student will be so notified and will be advised of the 
right to a hearing. He or she may then exercise that right by written 
request to the Office of the Chancellor. 

B. Right to a Hearing 

Upon request by a student, the University will provide an opportunity for 
a hearing to challenge the content of the student's records. A request 
for a hearing should be in writing and submitted to the Office of 
Registrations. Within a reasonable time of receipt of the request, the 
student will be notified in writing of the date, place, and time reasonably 
in advance of the hearing. 

(1) Conduct of the hearing 

The hearing will be conducted by a University official who does not 
have a direct interest in the outcome. The student will have a full and 
fair opportunity to present evidence relevant to the issues raised and 
may be assisted or represented by individuals of his or her choice at 
his or her own expense, including an attorney. 

(2) Decision 

Within a reasonable period of time after the conclusion of the 
hearing, the University will notify the student in writing of its decision. 
The decision will be based solely upon evidence presented at the 
hearing and will include a summary of the evidence and the reasons 
for the decision. If the University decides that the information is 
inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the privacy or 
other rights of students, the University will amend the records 
accordingly. 

C. Right to Place an Explanation in the Records 

If, as a result of the hearing, the University decides that the information 
is not inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student's 
rights, the University will inform the student of the right to place in his or 
her record a statement commenting on the information and/or explain- 
ing any reasons for disagreeing with the University's decision. Any such 
explanation will be kept as part of the student's record as long as the 
contested portion of the record is kept and will be disclosed whenever 
the contested portion of the record is disclosed. 

V. Right to File Complaint

Additional Campus Programs 

Air Force Aerospace Studies Program (ROTC) 

The Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) provides a program 
for college men and women to earn a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the 
United States Air Force while completing their University degree requirements. 

Two Programs Offered 

Four- Year Program. This program is composed of a General Military Course and 
a Professional Officer Course. The first two years (General Military Course) 
normally for freshmen and sophomores, give a general introduction to the Air 
Force and the various career fields. Students enrolled in the GMC program incur 
NO OBLIGATION and may elect to discontinue the program at any time. The final 
two years (the Professional Officer Course) are concentrated on the development 
of management skills and study of American Defense Policy. Students must 
compete for acceptance into the POC and are guaranteed a commission upon 
successful completion of the program. ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE 
LAST TWO YEARS OF THE PROGRAM RECEIVE APPROXIMATELY $1,000 
ANNUALLY TAX FREE. 

Students in the four-year program who successfully complete the first two 
years of the program and are accepted into the POC program must attend four 
weeks of field training at a designated Air Force base during the summer after 
completing the sophomore year of college. To enter the AFROTC program, one 
should inform his or her advisor and register for classes in the same manner as 
for other courses. 

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

The Curriculum 

General Military Course— Freshman year ARSC, 100/101. Combined, these 
two courses are designed to introduce the student to the role in our society of the 
Department of Defense and the U.S. Air Force. Sophomore year, ARSC 200/201 . 
These two courses provide a very complete history of the role of aerospace 
systems in our military and in our society. (1 hr cr per semester) PROFESSIONAL 
OFFICER COURSE— Junior year, ARSC 310/311. This full year course consists 
of three hours of academic study each semester and a one-hour leadership 
management lab weekly. Here the student is introduced to management and 
leadership concepts. The course is designed to provide a solid foundation for the 
continued development of junior level managers, with emphasis on the junior 
military officer's professional skills. Senior year, ARSC 320/321 is composed of 
three hours of academic study and one hour of laboratory each week. This full 
year course conceptually focuses on the Armed Forces as an integral element of 
society with an emphasis on the broad range of American civil-military relations 
and the environmental context in which U.S. defense policy is formulated and 
implemented. All Aerospace Studies Courses are open to any university student 
for credit whether or not he or she is in the AFROTC Program. 

Scholarships Available. The AFROTC College Scholarship Program provide 8, 
7, 6, 5, 4 semester scholarships to students on a competitive basis. Scholarships 
are currently available in numerous technical fields and are based on merit and 
not need. Those selected receive money for tuition, lab expenses, incidental fees 
and books plus a non-taxable allowance of $100 monthly. (See AFROTC College 
Scholarship Program below). 

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

Air Force ROTC Nurse Program. Air Force ROTC makes it possible for qualified 
applicants of nursing schools to enroll in its programs and, upon completion of all 
academic and licensing requirements, receive a commission as a Second 
Lieutenant in the United States Air Force Medical Corps. 

General Requirements for Acceptance into the POC. The student must 
complete the General Military Course and a four-week field training session, or 
the six-week field training session, pass the Air Force Officer Qualification Test, 
be physically qualified, be in good academic standing and meet age require- 



ments. Successful completion of the Professional Officer Course and a bache- 
lor's degree (or higher) are prerequisites for a commission as a Second 
Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. Additional information may be obtained 
from Capt. Gale Buchholtz in the office of Aerospace Studies. Telephone 454- 
3242/43. 

Endowed and Annual Scholarships and Grants 

AFROTC College Scholarship Program 

Air Force ROTC College Scholarships are available on a competitive basis 
to qualified applicants enrolled in the Four and Two Year AFROTC programs. 
(For a full explanation of Air Force ROTC, see AFROTC under "Additional 
Campus Programs.") Three through eight semester scholarships are available 
and are based on merit and not need. These scholarships provide full tuition, 
laboratory fees, incidental fees and full reimbursement for textbooks. In addition, 
scholarship cadets in the last two years of the program receive a non-taxable 
allowance of $100 monthly. Any student accepted by the University of Maryland 
may apply for these scholarships. AFROTC membership is required if one 
receives an AFROTC scholarship. 

Center for Philosophy and Public Policy 

Director: Peter G. Brown 

Research Associates: Robert Fullinwider, David Luban, Douglas MacLean, Mark 

Sagoff, Henry Shue, Paul Vernier 

The Center for Philosophy and Public Policy conducts an interdisciplinary 
program which engages in research and curriculum development with the 
purpose of investigating conceptual and ethical aspects of public policy formula- 
tion and debate. Most research efforts — on topics expected to be a focus of 
public policy debate during the next decade— are conducted cooperatively by 
working groups composed of philosophers, policymakers and analysts, other 
experts from within and without the government, and Center staff. In its research 
efforts the Center seeks to create an improved understanding of the normative 
principles 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 U.S. foreign policy; (3) moral and conceptual 
issues in welfare reform; (4) the ethical significance of national boundaries and 
shared nationality; (5) moral and conceptual aspects of U.S. policy toward 
Mexican migration; (6) energy policy and our obligations to future generations; (7) 
ethical dilemmas facing lawyers; (8) philosophical issues in environmental ethics; 
and (9) the morality of compulsory military service. 

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

The Center's curriculum 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, Distributive Justice and Public Policy, Philosophical 
Issues in Public Policy, Ethics and Welfare, Professional Responsibility, The 
Morality of Compulsory Military Service, Environmental Ethics, and Energy Policy 
and the Constraints of Justice. 

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 materials 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: Theories 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, 
interdisciplinary 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 



48 Additional Campus Programs 



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 categories: 

1. ECON 474: Economic Problems of Women 
GVPT 429: Women and the Political System 
GVPT 436: Legal Status of Women 

2. ENGL 250: Women in Literature 
ENGL 348: Literary Works by Women 

3. HIST 210: Women in Europe and America 1600-1850 
HIST 211: Women in Europe and America 1850-present 
HIST 301: Women in Industrial Development 

4. SOCY 325: Sex Roles (primarily for non-Sociology majors) 

SOCY 425: Sex Roles and Social Institutions (primarily for Sociology majors) 
PSYC 309: Psychology of Women 

Students are encouraged to take WMST 200 when possible before enrolling 
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. 

Course code prefix: WMST 

Bachelor of General Studies 

The Bachelor of General Studies program is a flexible major which provides 
an alternative educational structure for students who choose not to concentrate 
in a specific discipline or department. Students may utilize a wide range of 
courses offered at UMCP to pursue their own educational objectives, whether by 
combining related courses from several departments, by exploring two or three 
distinctly separate interests at once, or by thoughtfully choosing a variety of 
courses from throughout the University. 

Students in General Studies accept responsibility for developing programs 
to meet their specific educational and employment goals. Although there are no 
"required" courses as in other majors, the substance of the individualized 
curriculum (the actual courses taken, how they relate to each other, what skills 
are acquired) may be important to potential employers or for graduate programs. 

Requirements 

1 . The student must be registered as a General Studies major for at least the 
last 30 credits immediately preceding graduation. 

2. A minimum of 120 credits must be accumulated with a grade point average 
of at least 2.0. 

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

4. No more than 60 credits in any one division may be counted toward the 
required 120 credits. The courses taken must be distributed over at least 
three divisions. 

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

6. All University English requirements in effect for the student's term of entry at 
UMCP must be completed. 

General Studies is not the same as "Undecided", nor is it usually an 
appropriate major for freshman or students in between majors. It is sometimes an 
excellent choice for entering transfer students with an assortment of past credits 
in various fields or for people changing from one area of interest to another which 
is substantially different. In any case, change to the BGS program when you know 
that it is what you want; it is a decision— not a way to avoid one. 

For more information, call or visit the office of the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies (454-2530/1, Room 1115, Undergraduate Library). Individual advising is 
available and strongly recommended. 

Individual Studies Program 

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

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

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



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

Applicants are required to write a detailed prospectus outlining their 
proposed program of study. They must meet the General University Require- 
ments or University Studies requirements. The process of applying often involves 
considerable consultation and several drafts of a prospectus, so it should be 
begun as early as possible. Students may be admitted to the Individual Studies 
Program after completion of one semester of residence at College Park and must 
be officially approved by the Individual Studies Faculty Review Committee prior to 
the final thirty semester hours of the proposed curriculum. 

More information on requirements and procedures is available from the 
Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Studies, Room 1115 Undergraduate 
Library. After reading that material, arrange a meeting with the Assistant Dean for 
Undergraduate Studies to informally discuss ideas and plan the next steps. 

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 varied interests, in a 
program whose emphasis is on interdisciplinary and educationally broadening 
activity. 

Students may apply for admission as freshmen. High school students 
ordinarily apply at the same time as they apply for 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 colloquia, special honors sections of basic courses in many 
departments, upper division General Honors seminars, independent study and 
field experience. Successful General Honors students graduate with a citation in 
General Honors which is recorded on their transcripts 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 descriptions 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-professional study before 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 criteria, 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 varies 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 



Additional Campus Programs 49 



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 UMAB. 

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:

noted that Zoology 101 is a prerequisite for Zoology 201 , 202 (Human Anatomy and Physiology) 
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 during the third semester 
from the Director of Admissions and Registrations, Room 132, Howard Hall, 660 
W. Redwood St., Baltimore, Md. 21201; or from the dental hygiene advisor on the 
College Park campus. Applications for the Baltimore campus must be received no 
later than February 1 prior to the fall semester for which the student wishes to 
apply. All applicants are required to submit Allied Health Professions Admission 
Test (AHPAT) scores. Information concerning the AHPAT is available from the 
dental hygiene advisor on the College Park campus or the Dental School's Dental 
Hygiene Department. Applicants with a 2.5 or better GPA will be required to 
appear for a personal interview, those with a cumulative GPA of 2.3-2.5 will be 
interviewed at the discretion of the Dental Hygiene Admissions Committee. All 
potential applicants should meet regularly with the dental hygiene advisor on the 
College Park campus, 2109 Turner Laboratory. 

Registered dental hygienists who have completed a two-year accredited dental 
hygiene program, as well as one year of clinical experience as a dental hygienist, 
should contact the dental hygiene advisor on the College Park campus, Room 
2109 Turner Lab, College Park, Md. 20742, in order to determine the number of 
transferable credits and the number of additional pre-professional and lower 
division elective courses necessary for eligibility to apply for the post certificate 
program. If all pre-professional curriculum requirements have not been fulfilled,

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 Spring of the 
junior year. 

Three-Year Arts-Dentistry Degree 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 Advising 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 major programs and can include 
in his or her course work courses specifically prescribed by dental schools of 
choice. These are generally a minimum of one year of General Chemistry, one 
year of Organic Chemistry, one year of Zoology, one year of Physics (each 
course must have a laboratory component), and one year of English. The courses 
listed in A through E above for the three-year Arts-Dentistry Degree 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-Forestry 

Pre-Forestry students are advised in the Department of Horticulture section. 
See page 60 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 exceptional records who are accepted to the School of Law of 
the University of Maryland under the Arts-Law program may receive a B.A. 
degree (Arts-Law) after satisfactory completion of the first year of law school, 
upon recommendation by the Dean of the University of Maryland Law School and 
approval by the College Park Campus. The degree is awarded in August following 
the first year of law school (or after 30 credit hours are completed). 

Pre-Medical Technology 

A Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Technology is offered through the 
Medical Technology Program of the University of Maryland Medical School, 
located in Baltimore (UMAB). The first two years, consisting of pre-professional 
studies, may be completed on any University of Maryland campus, except UMAB, 
or at any regionally accredited university or college. Enrollment in the preprofes- 
sional curriculum does not guarantee admission to the upper division at UMAB. 

The Medical Technologist plays a major role in the diagnosis and treatment 
of disease by applying scientific knowledge and skill to the supervision and 
accurate performance of complex laboratory and therapeutic procedures. Career 
opportunities exist for the Medical Technologist in hospitals, private clinics, 
pharmaceutical research, government, academics and sales. The professional 
curriculum at UMAB includes courses in hematology, clinical chemistry, micro- 
biology, immunology, immunohematology, microscopy, anatomy and physiology, 
and management. The curriculum at UMAB is designed to train students in the 
complex technical skills essential for the modern medical technologist, as well as 
to challenge students to understand the more complex principles underlying their 
technology. It is essential that students develop skills in the area of oral and 
written communication and the critical assessment of information. 

Application and Admission. Applicants for the pre-medical technology curricu- 
lum at College Park must meet admission requirements of that campus. High 
school students are encouraged to enroll in a college preparatory curriculum 
emphasizing biology, chemistry and college preparatory mathematics. 

Applicants to the upper division of the Medical Technology Program must 
submit an application for admission before February 15 of the academic year 
prior to enrollment. Students must have a 2.0 minimum grade point average to be 
eligible for admission. However, the successful applicant is likely to have a higher 
GPA. Although a student may be admitted and complete the junior year at UMAB, 
he or she must have a minimum of 2.5 overall GPA at the end of the junior year in 
order to be advanced to the senior year. The Allied Health Professions 
Admissions Test (AHPAT) is required for admission. Selection of applicants is 
based on successful completion of preprofessional requirements, AHPAT scores, 
academic performance, and interviews. Classes begin in September. Full-time 
day attendance is required during the junior and senior years. 

The UMAB program in Medical Technology is accredited by the National 
Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) and the Council 
on Medical Education of the American Medical Association (AMA) to accept a 
limited number of students to the junior year. Actual enrollment is limited by the 
number of spaces available in the clinical affiliations. Upon successful completion 
of the program, graduates are eligible to take the national certification examina- 
tion given by the Board of Registry of the American Society for Clinical Pathology 
(ASCP).

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" is 
offered registered nurses who desire to earn a B.S.N. After completing the pre- 
professional course work, the R.N. will advance to senior status by validating, by 
the use of advanced placement examinations, and previous acquired nursing 
knowledge. The senior year is designed to provide the student with an 
understanding of a conceptual framework which can be used in organizing 
nursing knowledge, implementing professional nursing care and evaluating the 
care given. 

Application and Admission. Applicants for pre-nursing at College Park must 
meet admission requirements of that campus. 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-Optometry 

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. 

Pre-Pharmacy 

The School of Pharmacy, which is located in Baltimore (UMAB), offers both 
a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and a six-year 



52 Additional Campus Programs 

program leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Both programs are the same 
until the fifth year, when some students are accepted into the Doctor of 
Pharmacy program. The first two years, consisting of pre-professional studies, 
may be completed at any University of Maryland campus except UMAB or at 
another accredited institution. The final three or four years of upper division work 
must be completed in the School of Pharmacy at Baltimore. 

The purposes of the School of Pharmacy are to train students for the 
efficient, ethical practice of all branches of pharmacy; to instruct students in 
general scientific and cultural subjects so they can read critically, express 
themselves clearly and think logically as members of a profession and citizens of 
a democracy; and to guide students into productive scholarship and research for 
the increase of knowledge and techniques in the healing arts of pharmacy. 

The School of Pharmacy is accredited by the American Council on 
Pharmaceutical Education. The School holds membership in the American 
Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. 

Application and Admission. Applicants for pre-pharmacy at College Park must 
meet all admission requirements of that campus. High school preparation should 
include 4 units of college preparatory mathematics, 3 units of science including 
chemistry and physics, and 2 units of French or German. 

Students applying to the School of Pharmacy for admission to the upper 
division must complete the required pre-professional courses with at least a 2.25 
grade point average. This is a minimum average for consideration. The average 
for all successful candidates has been a 3.0. Applicants should apply by April 1. 
The Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) is required.

Pre-Physical Therapy 

The Department of Physical Therapy offers a four-year program leading to 
the Bachelor of Science degree. The first two years, consisting of pre- 
professional studies, may be completed on any University of Maryland campus 
except UMAB or any regionally accredited university or college. Professional 
courses are 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 
implemented within the referral of the licensed physician or dentist with whom the 
contact is maintained regarding patient care and progress. Treatment techniques 
include the therapeutic use of heat, cold, water, electricity, light, ultra-sound, 
massage exercise and functional training. Instruction is given to the patient, the 
family and others who might help during the treatment and convalescent period. 

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

Application and Admission. Applicants for the pre-physical therapy program at 
College Park must meet all admission requirements for that campus. High school 
students should pursue a college preparatory program. Subjects specifically 
recommended are biology, chemistry, physics and three units of college 
preparatory mathematics. Completion of a year of high school public speaking will 
provide exemption from the college speech requirement. 

Applicants for the junior year at UMAB must complete the 60 designated 
credits with a grade of "C" or better in each of the required pre-professional 



courses. The minimum grade point average for admission is 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. 
However, it is only realistic to assume that a higher average is needed for 
selection. It is unlikely that non-resident candidates with less than a 3.0 average 
will be considered. The application deadline is December 1, and supporting 
documents (transcripts and AHPAT) must be received by February 1 of the year 
of admission. The Allied Health Professions Admission Test (AHPAT) is required. 
Selection of applicants is based on academic and personal achievement, test 
scores and personal interviews. Physical therapy experience (as a volunteer, 
aide, etc.) is strongly recommended. There is no exclusion based on sex, age, 
ethnic background or prior completion of another academic degree.

Pre-Radiologic Technology 

The Radiologic Technology program offered by the Division of Radiologic 
Technology of the School of Medicine is a four-year program leading to the 
Bachelor of Science degree. The first two years, consisting of pre-professional 
studies, may be completed at any University of Maryland campus except UMAB 
or at another accredited institution. The final two years entail professional studies 
in the Radiologic Technology Division at Baltimore (UMAB). Enrollment in the pre- 
professional program does not guarantee admission to the upper division. 

The Radiologic Technologist is principally concerned with the utilization of 
sophisticated diagnostic imaging systems which are used in a wide variety of 
clinical procedures to provide the physician with images of the internal anatomy 
of the patient as an aid to diagnosis. The curriculum includes courses in 
Radiologic Physics, Radiation Protection and Radiobiology, and Anatomy, 
Physiology and Pathology as depicted on the x-ray film. Introductory courses in 
teaching and administration in Radiologic Technology, as well as peripheral areas 
such as Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Therapy and others are included in the 
curriculum. The Radiologic Technology Program of the University of Maryland is 
designed to produce an individual who is both clinically competent and 
academically qualified to function in a wide variety of positions in radiology and 
related fields. Additionally, the program is intended to provide an academic 
background sufficient to enable the qualified student to pursue a graduate degree 
in Radiology Administration, Education, or the Radiological Sciences. 

Application and Admission. Applicants for pre-radiologic technology at College 
Park must meet all admission requirements of that campus. 

Students near completion of pre-professional requirements who wish to 
apply for the junior year at UMAB must apply by April 1 . A grade-point average of

Division of Agricultural and Life 
Sciences 

The Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences offers educational opportuni- 
ties for students in subject matter relating to living organisms and their interaction 
with one another and with the environment. Education in all aspects of agriculture 
is included. Programs of study include those involving the most fundamental 
concepts of biological science and chemistry and the use of knowledge in daily 
life as well as the application of economic and engineering principles in planning 
the improvement of life. In addition to pursuing the baccalaureate degree, a 
number of students in this Division engage in pre-professional education in such 
fields as Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, and Pre-Veterinary Medicine.

College of Agriculture 



The College of Agriculture offers educational programs with a broad cultural 
and scientific base. Students are prepared for careers in agricul'jrally 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 principles is conducted in well-designed classrooms and laborator- 
ies. The application of basic principles to practical situations is demonstrated for 
the student in numerous ways. 

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

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

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

General Information. Today's agriculture is a highly complex and extremely 
efficient industry which includes supplies and services used in agricultural

production, and the marketing, processing and distribution of products to meet 
the consumers' needs and wants. 

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

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

Graduates of the College of Agriculture have an adequate educational 
background for careers and continued learning after college in business, 
production, teaching, research, extension, and many other professional fields. 

Requirements for Admission. Admission requirements to the College of 
Agriculture are the same as those of the University. 

For students entering the College of Agriculture it is recommended that their 
high school preparatory course include English, 4 units; mathematics, 3 units; 
biological and physical sciences, 3 units; and history or social sciences, 2 units. 
Four units of mathematics should be elected by students who plan to major in 
agricultural engineering or agricultural chemistry. 

Requirements for Graduation. Each student must complete at least 120 credit 
hours in academic subjects with a minimum grade point average of 2.0(C). 

Honors Program. An Honors Program is approved for majors in Agricultural and 
Resource Economics. The objective of the Honors Program is to recognize 
superior scholarship and to provide opportunity for the excellent student to 
broaden his or her perspective and to increase the depth of his or her studies. 

The programs in Honors are administered by Departmental Honors. 
Students in the College of Agriculture who are in the top 20 percent of their class 
at the end of their first year may be considered for admission into the Honors 
Program. Of this group up to 50 percent may be admitted. 

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

Faculty Advisement. Each student in the College of Agriculture is assigned to a 
faculty advisor. Advisors normally work with a limited number of students and are 
able to give individual guidance. 

Students entering the freshman year with a definite choice of curriculum are 
assigned to departmental advisors for counsel and planning of all academic 
programs. Students who have not selected a definite curriculum are assigned to a 
general advisor who assists with the choice of electives and acquaints students 
with opportunities in the curricula in the College of Agriculture and in other 
divisions of the University. 

Scholarships. A number of scholarships are available for students enrolled in the 
College of Agriculture. These include awards by the Agricultural Development 
Fund, Capitol Milk Producers Cooperative, Inc., Dairy Technology Society of 
Maryland and the District of Columbia, Delaware-Maryland Plant Food Associa- 
tion, Inc., Dr Ernest N. Cory Trust Fund, James R. Ferguson Memorial Fund, The

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 part 
of their work involves written communication with the public. 

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

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

The curriculum in animal sciences offers a broad background in general 
education, basic sciences, and agricultural sciences, and the opportunity for 
students to emphasize that phase of animal agriculture in which they are 
specifically interested. Each student will be assigned to an advisor according to 
the program he or she plans to pursue. 

Curriculum requirements in Animal Sciences can be completed through the 
Departments of Animal Science, Dairy Science or Poultry Science. Programs of 
elective courses can be developed which provide major emphasis on beef, cattle, 
sheep, swine or horses, dairy or poultry. Each student is expected to develop a 
program of electives in consultation with an advisor by the beginning of the junior 
year. 

Objectives. The following specific objectives have been established for the 
program in animal sciences. 

1 . To acquaint students with the role of animal agriculture in our cultural 
heritage. 

2. To prepare students for careers in the field of animal agriculture. These 
include positions of management and technology associated with animal, dairy, 
or poultry production enterprises: positions with marketing and processing 
organizations; and positions in other allied fields, such as feed, agricultural 
chemicals and equipment firms. 

3. To prepare students for entrance to veterinary schools. 

4. To prepare students for graduate study and subsequent careers in 
teaching, research and extension, both public and private. 

5. To provide essential courses for the support of other academic programs 
of the University.

Conservation and Resource Development Programs 

The development and use of natural resources (including water, soil, 
minerals, fresh water and marine organisms, wildlife, air and human resources) 
are essential to the full growth of an economy. 

The curriculum in Conservation and Resources Development is designed to 
instill concepts of the efficient development and judicious management of natural 
resources. The study of the problem associated with use of natural resources will 
acquaint students with their role in economic development while maintaining 
concern for the environment. 

Students will prepare for professional and administrative positions in land 
and water conservation projects; for careers in operational, administrative, 
educational, and research work in land use, fish and wildlife management, natural 
resource management, recreational area development, and management, or for 
graduate study in any of the several areas within the biological sciences. 
Students will pursue a broad education program and then elect subjects 
concentrated in a specific area of interest. Each student will be assigned an 
advisor according to his area of interest.

The horticulturist combines a knowledge of the basic sciences with an 
intimate knowledge of plants and their requirements in an effort to help meet the 
food needs of the world population and to help beautify man's surroundings. The 
horticulturist specifically, is involved with fruit production (pomology), vegetable 



production (olericulture), greenhouse plant production (floriculture), production of 
ornamental trees and shrubs, post-harvest horticulture, and the aesthetic and 
functional planning and design of landscapes for public and pnvate facilities 
(Landscape Design). Horticultural principles are essential to designing the 
landscape for improvement of the human environment. Post-harvest horticulture 
is involved with the storage and transportation of horticultural products until they 
reach the consumer. 

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

Majors may prepare for work with handicapped persons as horticultural 
therapists by electing appropriate courses in the social sciences and in 
recreation. The Horticultural Education option is designed for those who wish to 
teach horticulture in the secondary schools. It prepares the graduate with a basic 
knowledge of horticulture and includes the courses required for certification to 
teach in Maryland. The Landscape Design option introduces the principles and 
practices of design and prepares the student for work in the area of commercial 
landscape design. 

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

All students should meet with the option advisor before enrolling in courses 
for the option.

Pre-Theology 

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

Pre-Veterinary Medicine 

The pre-veterinary medicine program is based upon the requirements 
established by the colleges of Veterinary Medicine where students who are 
residents of Maryland may be offered admission. Four such institutions currently 
offer admission to Maryland residents. 



The Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine will accept 
up to 30 Maryland residents per year. Minimum semester credit requirements for 
admission are; Biology 8, Organic Chemistry 8, Physics 8. The Graduate Record 
Examination, Aptitude Section, is also required. 

The Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine will accept up to 
six Maryland residents per year. Minimum semester credit requirements for 
admission are: Biology 8, Chemistry 16, Biochemistry 3, Genetics 3, Microbiology 
3, Calculus 3, Physics 8, Humanities and Social Studies 14, English Composition 
3, Electives (science) 7. The Veterinary Aptitude Test is also required. 

The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and The New 
York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University will together admit 
a maximum of 10 Maryland residents per year. Admission requirements are to be 
obtained directly from the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University. 

The above indicated course requirements represent the minimum. Students 
are urged to select additional agricultural and life science courses and to excel 
academically in order to be competitive applicants. Potential Veterinary Medical 
applicants should gain experience with practicing veterinarians and also in animal 
related areas (farm, animal shelter, zoo, laboratory animal facility, etc.). 

The Colleges of Veterinary Medicine 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 
not been admitted to a college of veterinary medicine may transfer to one of the 
curricula at the University of Maryland in order to complete the B.S. degree. 

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

Combined Degree Curriculum— College of Agriculture 
and Veterinary Medicine 

Students enrolled in the College of Agriculture who have completed at least 
90 hours, ■ including all University, Division and College requirements, plus

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 programs- 
Marine Biology, Ecology, Physiology, or Genetics. Alternatively, 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 
during 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 respective 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.

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

For American Chemical Society certification the student should consult his 
or her advisor for course recommendations that will meet certification require- 
ments. 

A sample program, listing only the required or recommended courses, is 
given below. It is expected that each semester's electives will include courses 
intended to satisfy the general requirements of the University or of the Division of 
Agricultural and Life Sciences, plus others of the student's choice.

Geology is the basic science of the earth. In its broadest sense, geology 
concerns itself with planetary formation and modification with emphasis on the 
study of the planet Earth. This study directs its attention to the earth's internal 
and external structure, materials, chemical and physical processes and its 
physical and biological history. Geology concerns itself with the application of 
geological principles and with application of physics, chemistry, biology and 
mathematics to the understanding of our planet. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

No course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy major 
requirements. In addition, for graduation, students must achieve an overall C 
average in the major courses plus required supporting courses. 

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

Description of Program. The Department of Zoology offers a program leading 
to a B.S. with a major in Zoology. This program is designed to give each student 
an appreciation of the diversity of problems studied by zoologists, an opportunity 
to explore in depth more restricted areas of zoology, and an appreciation of the 
nature of observation or experimentation appropriate to investigations within 
these fields. The requirements of 30 hours in zoology (including one core course 
in each of four broad areas) and the required supporting courses in chemistry, 
mathematics and physics permit students to develop their interest in the general 
field of zoology or to concentrate in an area of specialization. 

Curriculum for Zoology Majors. All majors are required to complete a minimum 
of 30 credit hours in Zoology with an average grade of "C". Four required core 
courses offered at the freshman-sophomore level provide the prerequisite 
background information for junior-senior level courses in the major. The core 
courses may be taken in any sequence. It is not necessary to complete all four 
core courses before registering for junior-senior level courses, but it is strongly 
recommended that all four be completed by the end of the junior year. These 
required core courses are: 

Zool. 210— Animal Diversity (4) 

Zool. 211 — Cell Biology & Physiology (4), prerequisite one semester of 

inorganic chemistry 

Zool. 212— Ecology, Evolution and Behavior (4) 

Zool. 213— Genetics and Development (4), prerequisite one semester of 

organic chemistry 

Fourteen hours of junior-senior level courses, including two courses with 
laboratory, must be taken to complete the major. Students may specialize at this 
level by registering for those courses particularly appropriate to their academic 
objectives. Up to seven credits in ZOOL. 319, Special Problems in Zoology, and 
ZOOL. 328, Selected Topics in Zoology, may be used to fulfill the required 
fourteen hours at the junior-senior level. With special permission from the 
Department students may register for ZOOL. 386, Field Experience (1-3) and 
ZOOL. 387, Field Experience Analysis (1-3). These courses usually do not 
provide major credit. In no case shall more than eight of the required fourteen 
hours of junior-senior level credit be earned by registration in Zool. 319, Zool. 
328, Zool. 386, and Zool. 387. 

Students participating in the General or Departmental Honors Programs 
may submit credits earned in the following courses toward the required 30 hours 
in the major.

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. Students desiring to enter graduate study in certain areas of Zoology should 
take Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, Advanced Statistics, Advanced Mathe- 
matics, 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 Undergraduate 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 Experiment Station is to enhance all aspects of 
Maryland agriculture 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 other. Also directly in the consumer area is the study of clothing 
quality. 

Improved production techniques including waste utilization or disposal 
require studies involving soil-moisture-plant relationships and plant, bird, or 
animal-environment relationships and also studies of the applications of engi- 
neering 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 Experiment Station was established in 1888 to 
comply with the Hatch Act of 1887 authorizing the establishment of an 
agricultural experiment station at the Land Grant Colleges. Actually, the charter of 
the Maryland Agricultural College in 1856 specifially authorized establishment of 
a demonstration farm. The Station is supported by federal funds under the Hatch 
Act as amended, State appropriations, grants and contracts with State and 
federal agencies and by gifts or other support from 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 Maryland, 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 
Service 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. 



Division of Arts and Humanities 65 



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 Nutrition 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 Division of Arts and Humanities offers a rich assortment of courses and 
programs for major and non-major alike. Students interested in the traditional 
fields of the liberal arts will find many attractive offerings in the Department of Art, 
Music, Communication Arts and Theatre, English and the foreign languages, 
History, and Philosophy. Here they will study the artifacts and documents of the 
past and the present, reflecting both western and non-western civilizations. 

The Division also offers professional work in the creative and performing 
areas— studio art, music, dance, theatre, creative writing, and film— as well as 
professional training in architecture and modern communications (Journalism, 
Radio-Television Film). 

Arts and Humanities encourages its students to take multi or interdisciplinary 
approaches to the study of human cultural behavior. Majors are available in 
American Studies and Russian Studies. Faculty representing various disciplines 
will advise students on such other-world area studies as East Asian and Latin 
American. Or a student, with faculty help, may devise coherent programs in, for 
example, Women's Studies, Popular Culture, Jewish Studies, the History and 
Philosophy of Science, and the Classical, Medieval, or Renaissance world. All of 
these programs, and many others that a student's imagination and interest may 
suggest, are strengthened by courses from other divisions, particularly in the 
social sciences. 

Many of the major programs in Arts and Humanities make excellent pre-law 
preparation. In fact, with a judicious choice of electives in this and other divisions, 
students with any major in Arts and Humanities may prepare themselves for 
careers or advanced training in business, government, law, teaching, publishing, 
library work, and museum work, among others. Internship opportunities through- 
out the Division should enhance this process. 

Most careers in which the graduates of Arts and Humanities will eventually 
find themselves require and reward the abilities fostered by a liberal education: 
the ability to write clear, carefully organized, readable English, to speak forcefully 
and persuasively, to think logically and critically. The programs in the Division of 
Arts and Humanities, therefore, are concerned with developing the qualities of 
verbal facility and adaptability needed for career success. 

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 is composed of the following academic units: 



School of Architecture 

College of Journalism 

American Studies Program 

Art Department 

Center for Philosophy and Public Policy 

Classical Languages and Literatures Department 

Communication Arts and Theatre Department

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 and the College of Journalism 
award the Bachelor of Science degree.

concerning other degree programs within the Division (B.S. in the School of 
Architecture, B.S. in the College of Journalism, and B.Mus. in the Department of 
Music), the student should consult advisors in those units. 

Division Requirements: 

Notes: 

A course offered in fulfillment of a departmental or program requirement 
may also be offered in fulfillment of an appropriate divisional requirement. 

A course or courses used to satisfy one divisional requirement may not be 
used to satisfy another divisional requirement. 

Should there be any question as to whether a course meets a specified 
divisional requirement, it shall be resolved by the divisional office in consultation 
with the department offering the course. 

Distribution: 

A minimum of 45 semester hours of the total of 120 must be upper-level 
(i.e., numbered 300-499) work. 

Foreign Language: 

Demonstration of proficiency equivalent to the level achieved by completion

FREN JAPN 

Fine Arts: 

Successful completion of at least three semester hours in the fine arts, such 
as courses in ARCH, ARTH, ARTS, DANC, MUSC, MUSP, RTVF, SPCH, THET. 

Major Requirements: 

Completion of a program of study consisting of a major and supporting 
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 make this 
choice as early as he wishes; however, once he has earned 56 hours of 
acceptable credit, he must choose a major before his next registration. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Certification of High School Teachers. If courses are properly chosen in the 
field of education, a prospective high school teacher can prepare for high school 
positions, with a major and supporting courses in certain of the departments of 
this Division. A student who wishes to work for a 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 
Honors Committee within each department. Admission to a Departmental Honors 
Program ordinarily occurs at the beginning of the first or second semester of the 
student's junior 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 vote 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 breadth of liberal arts 
studies completed while enrolled at the University of Maryland. Gamma of 
Maryland chapter has liaison faculty members in the various departments in the 
Division of Arts and Humanities with whom students may discuss membership 
selection. It should be kept in mind that requirements for national honorary 
societies, such as completion of language and mathematics courses, often differ 
from the local college, division or university requirements.

Assistant Dean: Fogle 

Professors: Hill, Schlesinger, Loss 

Associate Professors: Bechhoefer, Bennett, Fogle, Lewis, Lord, Senkevitch

The School of Architecture of the University of Maryland is located between 
the Nation's Capital and the city of Baltimore, in the midst of a large number of 
historic communities and a varied physical environment. The resulting opportunity 
for environmental design study is unsurpassed. The School offers a graduate 
program leading to the degree, Master of Architecture, and four-year undergradu- 
ate programs leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in two major fields of study, 
architecture and urban studies. The undergraduate major in architecture is 
designed to minimize the time required to complete the curriculum leading to the 
professional degree, Master of Architecture. The urban studies program is 
designed for students admitted to the School who desire strong academic 
preparation in architecture and urban studies subjects at the undergraduate level, 
but who do not plan to pursue a career in architecture. 

Career Opportunities The B.S. degrees in architecture and urban studies will 
qualify the graduate to pursue a career in any of a number of fields, such as 
construction, real estate development, public administration or architectural 
journalism, or to continue on to graduate work in professional fields such as 
architecture, urban planning or law. 

The graduate of the Master's degree program in architecture will be qualified 
to enter the profession of architecture in private practice, as an employee of a 
public agency at the local, state or federal level, or to enter any one of a number 
of other emerging career paths such as real estate development, the de- 
sign/build field, or transportation planning. 

Although the changing patterns of energy consumption and the changing 
world economy can be expected to have major impacts on the practice of 
architecture and urban planning in the coming decades, it is clear that well- 
prepared environmental designers and architects will continue to be in demand 
as the physical environment in which we live and work is adapted to suit new 
circumstances. Architecture as a field of activity will continue to provide personal 
challenges of the highest order, the opportunity for varied work and for public 
service, and the chance to see others benefiting from and enjoying the products 
of one's efforts 

The School's professional program is accredited by the National Architectur- 
al Accreditation Board, Inc., enabling graduates to qualify for licensure in all fifty 
states, and by reciprocal agreement, in several foreign countries. 

The Curriculum The School's basic mission is to provide the general education 
and professional training and to develop the skills required by the graduate 
architect. Its curriculum in architecture is organized around courses in architectur- 
al and urban design, architectural history and theory, and architectural science 
and technology. Although its program is demanding, many electives — both in 
architecture and related fields and in the sciences and humanities— are also 



Schools and Colleges of the Division of Arts and Humanities 67 



available. Courses in design studio involve the student in a series of design case 
studies, often drawn from actual situations in the surrounding environment. Both 
science/technology and design courses utilize field tnps, "hands-on" experience, 
and the expertise of visiting critics and lecturers as well as regular faculty. 

Cadre Corporation In addition to its academic program, the School also 
provides learning experiences through CADRE Corporation, a non-profit Center 
for Architectural Design and Research housed in the School, which provides an 
organizational framework for faculty and students to undertake contract research 
and design projects appropriate to the School's fundamental education mission. 
Projects done by CADRE Corporation include building and urban design, urban 
studies, research in building technology, historic preservation, architectural 
archeology, studies in energy conservation, or other work for which the School's 
resources and interests are uniquely suited. CADRE thus offers students an 
opportunity to gain direct, real-world research and professional experience in an 
academic setting, along with financial assistance through fellowships, internships, 
stipends or direct salaries provided by the Center. 

Faculty The faculty of the School comprises four main groups: design; science- 
technology; history-theory and urban planning-urban design. All faculty members 
are active in professional practice and/or research in their respective areas of 
interest. For example, all design faculty members maintain active interests in 
professional practice, ranging from small residential work to large scale urban 
projects. Several members of the faculty have been retained as design 
consultants to local communities. Many faculty design projects have been 
recognized through local, national and international awards programs and 
publication. History faculty are active in classical field archeology in the Middle 
East and in research in American and Russian-Alaska Colonial architecture and 
in medieval architectural scholarship. Science-technology faculty are active in 
solar and energy optimization studies, and in research in earthquake-resistant 
structural design. 

Facilities The School is housed in a modern, air-conditioned building providing 
design work stations for each student, a large auditorium, and seminar and 
classroom facilities. A well-equipped woodworking and model shop, darkroom 
facilities, a lab equipped with testing machines and various instruments used in 
studying the ambient environment, and computer terminal facilities are also 
provided. The library contains some 20,000 volumes and 130 current periodicals, 
making it one of the major architectural libraries in the Nation. The slide collection 
numbers some 120,000 slides on architecture, landscape architecture, planning 
and technical subjects. A photo-documentation center provides students the 
necessary resources for photographing models and drawings. 

Admissions Admission to the School of Architecture is selective. Students are 
normally admitted to the undergraduate majors in architecture and in urban 
studies after completing sixty credits of general and prerequisite work. Early 
admission is possible directly from high school for outstanding students, who 
meet one of the following standards: (1) 3.5 GPA and combined SAT score of 
1200; (2) National Merit Scholarship finalist or (3) Recipients of Maryland 
Distinguished, Banneker, Chancellor's Scholarship or equivalent awards. Such 
students need not submit the portfolio described below. 

Normally, admission occurs after the student has completed sixty credits of 
academic work, including ENGL 101, MATH 201, PHYS 122, ARCH 220 and 
ARCH 221. ARCH 170 is also recommended. (ARCH 220 and 221 may be taken 
after admission as a transfer student.) Admission is based primarily, for transfer 
students, on a grade point average for college-level work and a portfolio of 
creative work.

College of Journalism 

Journalism Faculty 

Professor and Acting Dean: Martin 

Assistant Dean: Hines 

Assistants to the Dean: Caldwell, 

Professors: Crowell (Emeritus), Grunig, Hiebert, Holman, Merrill 

Associate Professors: Geraci , Levy 

Assistant Professors: Barkin, Beasley, McElreath, Nam, Nunamaker, Zanot 

Instructors: Caldwell, Carroll, Fields, Schneider Visiting Professor: Boyle 

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 American 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 House, 
executive departments and agencies, Supreme Court, and Congress. It is near 
many major non-governmental representative bodies such as associations, 
scientific and professional organizations, foreign representatives, and 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: 

General University Requirements. 

College Requirements: 

1. MATH 110 or 111 or any more advanced course in mathematics.

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 American literature or American history. The program's 



Arts and Humanities Departments, Programs and Curricula 69 



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 Stu- 
dies, Anthropology, Architecture, Art, Comparative Literature, Dramatic Arts, 
Economics, 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 American 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 America) in the senior year.

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

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

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

Chinese Program 

Director and Associate Professor: Rickett 

Associate Professor: Chin 

Assistant Professors: Cuadrado, Link, Sargent 

The program offers two series of courses— the language series and the 
content series. The language series consists of four levels of instruction; the 
elementary, the intermediate, the advanced, and a level of specialized courses 
such as Readings in Chinese History and Literature, Classical Chinese, etc. 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 materials for Chinese Linguistics (CHIN 421, 422) 
are in Chinese, CHIN 102 or equivalent is required for this sequence. 

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

Although the Program does not offer a major in Chinese, students may put 
together an individualized major through the Individual Studies Program. See any 
faculty member in the Chinese Program for details.

Classics is the study of the languages, literature, culture and thought of 
ancient Greece and Rome. At present students at Maryland may major in Latin, 
pursue a concentration in Greek, and enroll in a variety of courses on the 
classical world. In addition to the regular sequence of Greek and Latin courses, 
the Department offers Intensive Latin (LATN 120 and 220), Vocabulary Building 
(CLAS 280, 290), Greek and Roman Mythology (CLAS 170, 470) and special 
topics courses (CLAS 309) on ancient education, ancient literature, ancient 
sports, etc. Courses on other classical subjects (History, Art, Philosophy, 
Architecture) are taught by allied faculty on the Committee on Classical Studies. 

Major in Latin; LATN 101, 102, 203 and 204 or their equivalent must have 
been completed before a student may begin work on a major. A major consists of 
a minimum of twenty-four hours beginning with LATN 305, twelve hours of which 
must be taken in 400-level courses. In addition, a student majoring in Latin will be 
required to take as supporting courses CLAS 170, HIST 420, and HIST 421. The 
student is urged to pursue a strong supporting program in Greek. The following 
courses are recommended as electives: HIST 144 and 145, ARTH 402 and 403, 
and PHIL 310. No course in the Latin language with a grade less than C may be 
used to satisfy major requirements.

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) Theatre (educational theatre, acting, directing, produc- 
ing, theatre history, and technical theatre): (3) Radio-television-film (broadcasting . 
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 and 
drama education program. 

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. 

Since communication is a dynamic field, the course offerings are under 
constant review and development, and the interested student should obtain 
specific information about a possible program from a departmental advisor. 

The major requirements are: 30 hours of course work in any one of the 
divisions, exclusive of those courses taken to satisfy University or Divisional 
requirements. Of the 30 hours, at least 1 5 must be upper division in the 300 or 
400 series. No course with a grade less than C may be used to satisfy major 
requirements. 

Each of the possible concentrations in the department requires certain 
courses in order to provide a firm foundation for the work in that area. 

Speech Communication 

Required Courses: SPCH 125, 200, 220, 356, 400 and 474. In addition, 12

formally advised by the faculty of his "home" department in consultation with the 
Director of the Comparative Literature Program. In general, every student will be 
required to take CMLT 401 and CMLT 402, and during his last year, CMLT 496 (or 
an equivalent level course). The various literature departments concerned will 
have additional specific requirements. 

Students emphasizing comparative literature are expected to develop a high 
degree of competence in at least one foreign language. 

Course work may not be limited to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 

LATN 170 is highly recommended for those contemplating graduate work in 
Comparative Literature.

Professor Emerita: Madden 

Associate Professors: Rosen, Ryder, A. Warren, L. Warren 

Instructors: Smith, Lewis, Mayes, Owers, Perpemer, Rollack 

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 Maryland 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 Maryland Dance Theater, which is in residence in 
the Department. Supported in part by the Maryland Arts Council, and the Division 
of Arts and Humanities at the University, Maryland 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. 

Major course requirements total 48 semester hours in dance and 6 
semester hours in non-department supporting areas. Of these, a minimum of 1 5 
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 Maryland 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 



Arts and Humanities Departments, Programs and Curricula 71 



degree from the Division of Arts and Humanities or a Bachelor of Science degree 
from the Division of Human and Community 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 
department following admission to the University for instructions regarding 
advising, class placement auditions and registration procedures. The department 
strongly recommends that new dance maiors 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.

3. The major area may be chronological, regional or topical. 

4. Students may select both lower and upper division courses. 

5. A combination of chronological-topical courses or regional-topical 
courses is desirable. 

6. The proseminar, HIST 309, should normally be taken in the major area 
of concentration. 

III. 12 hours of history in at least two other areas than the area of 
concentration. 

1. Students may select either lower or upper division courses. 

2. Students are encouraged to consider regional diversity. 

3. Students are encouraged to take at least two elective courses in 
chronological periods other than that of their major area of concentra- 
tion. 

Grade of C or higher is required in each course included in the 39 required hours. 
For students matriculating after August 1, 1979, credits gained by Advanced 
Placement exams and CLEP exams will not be accepted toward fulfilling the 39- 
hour major requirement in History. Credit for the CLEP general history exam 
including the essay question may be used to meet other University requirements. 

Supporting courses: Nine credits at the 300-400 level in appropriate supporting 
courses; the courses do not all have to be in the same department. The choice of 
courses must be approved in writing— before attempted, if possible — by the 
departmental advisor. 

General University Requirements in History. All History courses on the 100, 
200, 300 and 400 levels are open to students seeking to meet the University 
requirements in Area C (Division of Arts and Humanities) with the exception of 
HIST 214, 215, 309, 316, 317, 318. A few other courses are open only to students 
who satisfy specified prerequisites, but that does not limit them to history majors. 
It should be noted that special topics courses— HIST 219, 319 and 416— are 
offered on several different subjects of general interest each semester. Descrip- 
tions may be obtained from the History Department office. 

Honors in History. Students who major or minor in history may apply for 
admission to the History Honors Program during the second semester of their 
sophomore year. Those who are admitted to the program substitute discussion 
courses and a thesis for some lecture courses and take an oral comprehensive 
examination prior to graduation. Successful candidates are awarded either 
honors or high honors in history. 

The History Department offers pre-honors work in American history and in 
western civilization. Consult Schedule of Classes for specific offerings each 
semester. Students in these sections meet in a discussion group instead of 
attending lectures. They read widely and do extensive written work on their own. 
Pre-honors sections are open to any student and are recommended for students 
in General Honors, subject only to the instructor's approval. Students who intend 
to apply for admission to the History Honor Program should take as many of them 
as possible during their freshman and sophomore years.

Japanese Program 

Assistant Professors: Kerkham, Ogawa 

The Japanese Program now offers four years of language instruction and a 
series of Japanese literature courses in translation. A directed study course 



Arts and Humanities Departments, Programs and Curricula 73 



provides additional language instruction, including advanced conversation and 
the study of classical Japanese, for more advanced students. 

The elementary Japanese 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 in all four language skills: 
speaking, hearing, reading, and writing (kana and characters). 

Courses in classical and modern Japanese literature in translation and 
special topics courses, such as Japanese linguistics, Buddhism and Japanese 
literature, Japanese women writers and others, are open to all students. These 
courses may serve as introduction to Japanese literature and culture and as 
background to the study of Japanese history, art, economics, business, govern- 
ment and politics, and religion. 

It is now possible to major in Japanese language and literature or in 
Japanese studies through the Individual Studies Program. For more information 
see one of the Japanese Program faculty members.

The Department of Philosophy seeks to develop students' logical and 
expository skills and their understanding of the foundations of human knowledge 
and of value, in accordance with its conception of philosophy as essentially an 
activity rather than a body of doctrine. Thus in all courses students can expect to 
receive concentrated training in thinking clearly and inventively and in expressing 
themselves exactly about philosophical issues. This training has general applica- 
bility to all professions in which intellectual qualities are highly valued, such as 
law, medicine, government and business management. With this in view the 
major in Philosophy is designed to serve the interests of those in the majority who 
are preparing for careers outside of philosophy as well as those in the minority 
who are preparing for graduate study in philosophy. 

The following are among the courses giving the general student training in 
rigorous thinking, experience in critical and imaginative reflection on philosophical 
problems or familiarity with the philosophical foundations of Western and other 
cultures: PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy), PHIL 140 (Ethics), PHIL 170 
(Introduction to Logic), PHIL 173 (Analytical Reading), PHIL 236 (Philosophy of 
Religion), and the historical courses: 310, 316, 320, 325, 326, 327. 

For students interested particularly in philosophical problems arising within 
their own special disciplines, a number of courses are appropriate: PHIL 233 
(Philosophy in Literature), PHIL 250 and 453 (Philosophy of Science I and II), 
PHIL 345 and 445 (Social and Political Philosophy I and II), PHIL 360 (Philosophy 
of Language), PHIL 330 (Philosophy of Art), PHIL 438 (Topics in Philosophical 
Theology), PHIL 450 and 451 (Scientific Thought I and II), PHIL 452 (Philosophy 
of Physics), PHIL 455 (Philosophy of the Social Sciences), PHIL 456 (Philosophy 
of Biology), PHIL 457 (Philosophy of History), PHIL 458 (Philosophy of Psycholo- 
gy), and PHIL 474 (Induction and Probability). 

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

The Department's curriculum is enriched by courses in philosophy and 
public policy issues taught by research associates in the Center for Philosophy 
and Public Policy under the repeatable designations PHIL 308 (Studies in 
Contemporary Philosophy) and PHIL 408 (Topics in Contemporary Philosophy), 



74 Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences 



cross-listed under similar headings in Government and Politics. Topics include 
Business Ethics. Welfare and Distributive Justice, Responsibility of Professionals, 
Environmental Ethics and the Morality of Forced Military Draft. 

The departmental requirements for a major in philosophy are as follows: (1) 
a total of at least 30 hours in philosophy, not including PHIL 100, (2) PHIL 140, 
371, 310, 320, 326 and at least two courses numbered 399 or above, (3) a grade 
of C or better in each course counted toward the fulfillment of the major 
requirement. 

Supporting courses are selected which prepare the student for a career 
within or outside of philosophy.

Russian Area Program 

Director and Student Advisors: Lampe, Foust, Yaney 

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

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

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

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

It is recommended but not required that the student who plans on doing 
graduate work complete at least 18 hours at the 300 level or above (which may 
include courses applicable to the Russian Area Program) in one of the above- 
mentioned departments. It is also recommended that students who plan on doing 
graduate work in the social sciences — government and politics, economics, 
geography, and sociology— take at least two courses in statistical methods. 

The student's advisor will be the program director or his designate. The 
student must receive a grade of C or better in all the above-mentioned required 
courses.

Spanish and Portugese Languages and Literatures 

Professors: Goodwyn, Gramberg, Marra-Lopez, Nemes, Sosnowski 
Associate Professors: Igel, Rovner 
Assistant Professor: Krueger, Munoz 
Instructor: Rentz 

Majors. Undergraduate majors can benefit from a wide range of courses in 
Spanish and Latin American literature and civilization; technical courses in 
translation; linguistics and commercial uses of Spanish. Area studies programs 
are also available in conjunction with other disciplines in order to provide the 
student with a solid knowledge of the Spanish and Latin American worlds. The 
major in literature prepares the student for graduate studies in Spanish and 
opportunities in various fields of study and work. 

A grade of at least "C" is required in all major and supporting area courses. 

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-Brazilian 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 Portuguese 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 or equivalent, 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 
candidates 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. 
SPAN 104H is limited to students who have received high grades in 102, 102H or 
103 or the equivalent. Upon completion of 104H, with the recommendation of the 
instructor, a student may skip 201. 

Lower Division Courses. The elementary and intermediate courses in Spanish 
and Portuguese 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 beginning in SPAN 101 are urged to follow 
the sequence of 101, 102, 104. They may not receive credit for 103 if they have 
credit for 101 and 102. 

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 Behavioral 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 behavioral and social problems. The Division, organized in 1972, 
contains academic departments which were formerly administered by the College 
of Arts and Sciences and the College of Business and Public Administration, in 
addition to a new College of Business and Management. The Division is designed 
to extend and support learning in the traditional disciplines while creating 
conditions for the development of interdisciplinary approaches to recurring social 
problems. Divisional students 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-oriented research and teaching. The interaction of faculty and students 
in overlapping fields will be encouraged and supported. 

In order to promote the exchange of ideas, education, and knowledge, each 
unit of the Division, including the College of Business and Management, will be 
concerned with both applied and theoretical aspects of the resolution of social 
problems. Practicums and internships will be utilized increasingly for the purpose 
of relating theoretical and empirical concepts in pursuit of the 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, Hearing and Speech 
Sciences, Sociology, Psychology, the Institutes of Criminal 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 Bureau of Business and 



College of Business and Management 75 



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

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. 

Admission to the College of Business and Management is competitive at the 
junior level, except for a small number of academically talented freshmen. 
Students who are admitted to the University with an interest in business but who 
do not meet the requirements for admission to the College are designated as 
"Pre-Business." Advisement for "Pre-Business" majors is available in the BSOS 
Undergraduate Advisement Office, Room 2115 Tydings Hall. 

General advisement in the College of Business and Management is 
available through the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Room 2136, Tydings 
Hall. 

Undergraduate academic advisors are designated for each major. These 
advisors are available to assist students in selecting courses and educational 
experiences in their major area of study consistent with major requirements and 
students' educational goals. These undergraduate advisors are located at the 
various departmental/unit offices. 

The Behavioral and Social Sciences Learning Center is located in Room 
0205 of the Social Sciences Building. The purpose of the Center is to provide 
students with academic support services in the form of individual tutoring, skills 
assessment, time management, study skills, and career planning. The Center is 
staffed by retired professionals, graduate and undergraduate students. 

Honors. Undergraduate Honors Programs are offered in the College of Business 
and Management, the Departments of Anthropology, Economics, Geography, 
Government and Politics, Psychology and Sociology, and in the Institutes of 
Criminal Justice and Criminology and Urban Studies. 

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. 
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.

' Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

The College of Business and Management 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 is the only business school in Maryland accredited by the American 
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, the official national accrediting 
organization for business schools. 

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. (Bachelor of Science Degree in one of the above curricula is awarded 
after 90 semester hours and one year at the University of Maryland School of 
Law. See specific requirements at the end of curricula section below.) 

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. 

The College of Business and Management is now responsible for offering 
courses in Information Systems Management. For specific information about 
degree requirements for current IFSM majors, see catalog description under 
Information Systems 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.); Master of Science (M.S.); 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. program is available 
from the College Director of Graduate Studies. 

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

Transfer students entering 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. 

General advisement of pre-business students is available in the BSOS 
Undergraduate Advisement office, in Room 2115 Tydings Hall. 

Entrance Requirements. Admission to the College is on a competitive basis at 
the Junior level, except for a small number of academically talented freshman. A 
minimum Grade Point Average of 2.3 with 56 hours completed is required for

consideration of admission to the College. In addition, a student entering at the 
junior level must have completed the College's freshmen and sophmore 
requirements in mathematics, accounting, statistics, economics, speech and 
English composition. 

Students who are admitted to the University with an interest in business but 
who do not meet the requirements for admission to the College are designated as 
"Pre-Business." 

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

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credits from Other Institutions. The 

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

Curricula 

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.

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

Statistics option. Statistics consists of a body of methods for utilizing probability 
theory in decision-making processes. Important statistical activities ancillary to 
the decision-making process are the systematization of quantitative data and the 
measurement of variability. Some specialized areas within the field of statistics 
are: sample surveys, forecasting, quality control, design of experiment, Bayesian 
decision processes, acturial statistics, and data processing. Statistical methods — 
for example, sample survey techniques— are widely used in accounting, market- 
ing, 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: Semester Credit Hours 

BMGT 430— Linear Statistical Models in Business 3

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.

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 banking, insurance and risk management, banking, and 
international finance; it also provides a foundation for graduate study in business 
administration, quantitative areas, economics, and law.

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

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

Undergraduates in good standing may enroll in the program by contacting 
Professor Al-Tony Gilmore, Professor Bartholomew Landry or Mr. George Benny 
of the Afro- American Studies Program, in Room 2169 New Social Sciences 
Building. Students pursuing a major or certificate must meet the General 
University and division requirements. 

Students who plan to major in Afro-American Studies must complete a total 
of 36 hours of Afro-American Studies courses. At least 24 of the 36 hours must 
be in upper division courses (300-400 numbers). Twelve hours of basic courses 
are required. To fulfill this requirement, all majors must take the twelve hours of 
basic courses: AASP 100, AASP 200, AASP 202 and AASP 298A. A minimum of 
six hours of seminars (two courses) are required: AASP 401 to be taken after 
completing 1 5 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 1 20 hours required for graduation by concentrating his studies in

Anthropology 

Associate Professor and Acting Chairman: Leone

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 cultural anthropology. Courses in these subdivisions 
may be used to fulfill the minor or "supporting courses" requirement in some 
programs leading to the B.A. degree. They also may, at the discretion of the 
Department of Sociology, be counted toward a major in Sociology. 

Anthropology Major: The fulfillment of the requirements for a major in 
anthropology leads to the B.A. degree. All majors are required to take 30 hours in 
anthropology, which must includes ANTH 101, 102,397,401,371 or 461 and 441 
or 451. 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 101, and ANTH 102, or their equivalent, or permission of the 
instructor, are prerequisites to all other courses in Anthropology.

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

The research activities of the Bureau are primarily tocused 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 largely by its own staff, faculty members from other departments also 
participate. The bureau also undertakes cooperative research programs with the 
sponsorship of federal and state governmental agencies, research foundations 
and other groups. 

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

The bureau observes its service responsibilities to 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.

* Joint Appointment with indicated unit. 

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs designed to 
prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, teaching, 
a variety of graduate programs, law schools, and for intelligent and purposeful 
citizenship. 

The study of politics is both an ancient discipline and a modern social 
science. The origin of the discipline can be traced back to the earliest times when 
philosophers, statesmen, and citizens studied the nature of government, justice, 
responsibility, and the consequences of government's action. More recently, the 
study of politics has also emphasized scientific observations about politics. 
Today, the discipline reflects a broad effort to collect data about politics and 
governments utilizing relatively new techniques developed by all of the social 
sciences. 

The Department of Government and Politics combines both philosophical 
and scientific concerns in its overall program as well as in specific courses and 
emphasizes such broad areas as political development, policy analysis, social 
justice, political economy, conflict, and human rights. These broad conceptual 
areas are integral components of the formal fields in the Department. The formal 
fields are (1) American government and politics; (2) comparative government; (3) 
political theory; (4) international affairs; (5) public administration; (6) public law, 
and (7) public policy and political behavior. 
Areas of Specialization 

The program in Government and Politics is highly flexible, and a varity of 
advising programs have been developed which meet the academic and career 
interests of departmental majors. The tracts listed below are among the more 
popular ones in the department, and students can construct their own program 
with an advisor. 

Pre-Law. Provides the student with a strong liberal arts background emphasized 
by law schools, includes at least one course in law, additional courses in the 
political and social context of law, a pre-law skill package as well as appropriate 
courses outside of the department. 

Public Sector Employment. Within this broad category are advising programs in 
general public administration leading to careers at entry-level positions in federal, 
state, and local governments, public finance and budgeting, public policy 
analysis, and public personnel management. Quantitative skills are highly 



recommended in this area, and majors are advised to select a strong substantive 
minor to complement their work in public administration, American politics, and 
public law. 

International Relations. Combines courses in the department in international 
relations and comparative politics along with a strong substantive minor, such as 
economics, business, or resource management. In addition, a strong background 
in a foreign language is highly recommended. 

Public Interest. A broadly defined area emphasizing the American political 
system, organizing, campaigning, lobbying, policy analysis, and public sector 
management. 

In addition, the department also offers strong programs in political theory, 
comparative human rights, environmental politics, women and politics, and urban 
politics. 
Requirements for the Government and Politics Major. 

Government and Politics majors must take a minimum of 36 semester hours 
in government courses and may not count more than 42 hours in government 
toward graduation. No course in which the grade is less than C may be counted 
as part of the major. No courses may be taken on a pass-fail basis. No more than 
9 hours of credit from the following courses may be used toward major 
requirements: GVPT 375, GVPT 376, GVPT 377, GVPT 386, and GVPT 387. 

All government majors are required to take GVPT 100, 170, 220, 441 or 442 
and such other supporting courses as specified by the department. They must 
take one course from three separate government fields as designated by the 
department. 

All departmental majors shall take ECON 205 or ECON 201. In addition, the 
major will select courses from one of the following options: (a) methodology, (b) 
foreign language, (c) philosophy and history of science, or (d) pre-law. A list of 
courses which will satisfy each option is available in the departmental office. 

All students majoring in government must fulfill the requirements of a 
secondary area of concentration, which involves the completion of 1 5 semester 
hours from approved departments other than GVPT. At least six of the 1 5 hours 
must be taken at the 300-400 level from a single department. 

Students who major in government may apply for admission to the GVPT 
Honors Program during the second semester of their sophomore year. Additional 
information concerning the Honors program may be obtained at the departmental 
offices. 

Departmental majors who have completed at least 75 hours towards a 
degree and at least 15 hours in GVPT are eligible to participate in the 
department's Academic Internship Program. 

Internships are available for upperclassmen who are interested in pursuing 
careers connected with the governmental legislative process; careers in law, 
public policy, intergovernmental relations, etc. In the Spring, interns are usually 
placed in legislative decision-making bodies providing valuable "real world" 
experience in the workings of national, state and local legislature, lobbying 
organizations and other legislative related agencies. In the fall, students are 
usually placed in federal, state and local government agencies ranging from the 
courthouse to the White House. 

The intern program, designated as GVPT 376 and 377, awarded 6 credits 
for field work experience and 3 credits for the academic seminar portion. The 
latter includes attendance at weekly seminars, preparation for various topical 
panels, completion of a journal, and a final paper.

ment of Hearing and Speech Sciences. Most course offerings in linguistics and 
hearing and speech sciences are available to HESP majors and non-majors. The 
student who wishes to work professionally as a speech/language pathologist or 
audiologist must complete at least 30 semester hours of graduate coursework in 
order to meet state and national certification requirements. 

A student majoring in Hearing and Speech Sciences must complete 21 
semester hours of specified courses and 9 semester hours of electives in the 
department to satisfy major course requirements. No course with a grade less

Industrial Relations and Labor Studies 

Acting Director: Weinstein 

The Program of Industrial 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 serving 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 

The Department of Information Systems Management has been transferred 
from the College Park campus to the Baltimore County campus. Those students 



currently enrolled as IFSM majors will be able to complete their degree programs 
at College Park as indicated below. IFSM courses are now administered by the 
College of Business and Management.

'Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

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

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

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

In order to assure breadth these additional courses must be selected from 
four different areas (two from each area). At least one course of these eight must 
be either PSYC 400, 410, or 420. 

The areas and courses are as follow: 

Area I: 206, 301, 310, 400, 402, 403, 405, 410, 412, 453, Area II: 221, 420, 422, 
423, 440, 441, Honors 430C, Area III: 331, 333, 335, 431, 433, 435. Area IV: 361, 
451, 452, 460, 461, 462, 463, 465, 467. 

Students should consult the current Psychology Undergraduate Program 
Guide for a list of approved advanced math-science courses. This guide is 
available in the Psychology Commons Room (ZP 1107). 

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

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

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

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

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



Students desiring to enter graduate study in certain areas of psychology are 
advised to take an additional laboratory course 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: 

PSYC 331 and PSYC 431 

PSYC 333 and PSYC 433 

PSYC 335 and PSYC 435 or 

PSYC 361 and PSYC 461 

Honors. The Department of Psychology also offers a special program for the 
superior student which emphasizes independent study and research. Students 
may be eligible to enter the Honors Program who have a 3.3 grade average in all 
courses or the equivalent, who are in the junior year, and who demonstrate 
interest and maturity indicative of success in the program. Students in their 
sophomore year should consult their advisor or the Departmental Honors 
Committee for further information.

'Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

Sociology is the study of human social and group behavior, concentrating on 
the interaction between people, the social organization of people and social order 
and social change within societies. Sociology's subject matter ranges from the 
intimate family to the hostile mob, from crime 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. 

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

The program of instruction concentrates on those areas of Sociology where 
knowledge is most rapidly accumulating. These areas are: social psychology; 
organizations; family; and social stratification. Beyond this the department places 
heavy emphasis on analytic skills— both thinking and data analytic— to prepare 
B.A.'s for jobs in the general caliber of the G.S. 7 level. These objectives are 
shaped by the long run intellectual concerns and the continued movement in 
Sociology towards the development of formal theories and models; the analysis 
of large data sets such as those collected by the Federal Government; greater 
application of qualititive theory and historical sociology; and an increasing 
emphasis on policy research. These areas of concentration can be combined to 
advantage or can be taken as part of a double major in conjunction with programs 
in other compatible areas such as economics, government and politics, psycholo- 
gy, business, etc. This program versatility and the rich experiential learning' 
possibilities of the Washington Metropolitan Area combine to make the Sociology 
curriculum a valuable career choice. 
Requirements of the Sociology Major: 

The student in Sociology must complete 47" hours of Departmental 
requirements, none of which may be taken pass/fail. Thirty-two" of these hours 
are in sociology course work which must be completed with a minumum average 
of C; 14" hours are in required core courses and 18 hours are Sociology 
electives, of which 9 are required in 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 requirement SOCY 201 should be taken, 
followed by SOCY 202. 



Division of Human and Community Resources 85 



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 of 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 Bldg.). 

'Experiential learning— an elective course offering SOCY 386/387 which allows 
an upper level major to gain up to 6 hours of credit by the combination of working 
in an internship/volunteer position and doing some academic project in conjunc- 
tion with the work experience (under the direction of a faculty member). 

"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.

* Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

The program assumes a comprehensive approach to urbanism and focuses 
on the total metropolitan area, including suburbs as well as central cities, their 
interrelationship, and state and federal policy. In addition to an interdisciplinary or 
multi-disciplinary staff, the program includes students from a variety of disciplines. 
The program centers around a set of seminars dealing with cities or urbanization 
as they involve economic factors, social problems, political and governmental 
activities, and environmental and physical aspects of urbanization. Contemporary 
urban problems will be emphasized and modern methodological and analytical 
techniques will be considered. In addition to the Urban Studies courses, an area 
of urban-related specialization from another discipline is selected. Each student, 
working closely with the Urban Studies advising office, designs a program of 
study based on interests and future career plans. As the Institute was created to 
answer the needs of local, state, and national government units for personnel 
with expertise in urban planning, management and development, job placement 
is a high priority and our graduates have maintained an 85% placement rate. The 
advising office is located in Room 2102, Woods Hall, x5718. 

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



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 tries to stimulate interest in aging within existing 
departments, colleges, and schools throughout the various campuses of the 



University. The Center assists students interested in the field of gerontology and 
helps them to devise educational programs to meet their goals. The Center also 
sponsors a colloquium series on aging, conducts community training programs 
and assists faculty in pursuing research activities in the field of aging. The Center 
and the College of Library and Information Services maintain the Robert N. Butler 
Library which contains an extensive collection of vertical files that were 
developed by Dr. Robert Butler. 

Intensive Educational Development Program 

The Intensive Educational Development (IED) Program is designed to 
provide an equal opportunity for successful matriculation for those students who 
are economically, educationally and/or culturally deprived; exhibit limited English- 
speaking ability; and/or are physically handicapped. Specifically, the program is 
designed to provide freshman and sophomore students with comprehensive and 
continuous services in the areas of English, reading, math, counseling, academic 
advising and tutoring. The program encourages students to utilize all program 
and University services which would enable them to develop their intellectual, 
personal, social and economic potential. 

All prospective IED students are required to participate in the six (6) week 
Summer Transition Program that is designed to develop, expand and improve the 
individual's basic skills in English, math and reading; provide a learning 
experience that will assist the students in the transition from high school to the 
University; and provide an opportunity to challenge and further evaluate each 
student's potential for success at this University. 

Following the initial summer component and throughout the academic year, 
counseling, skill development, tutorial assistance and other support services are 
available for the students enrolled in the program. Support services are also 
available to the University community upon request.

Upward Bound Program 

The University of Maryland Upward Bound Program is designed to provide 
academic and counseling assistance to capable but underachieving high school 
students with the purpose of preparing them to pursue some form of post- 
secondary education. Upward Bound serves as a supplement to its participants' 
secondary school experiences. It provides the opportunity for each student to 
improve or develop the skills necessary for acquiring a positive self-image, 
broadening his/her educational and cultural perspective, and for identifying and 
actualizing undiscovered potentials. 

Upward Bound students are selected from high schools in Prince George's 
and Montgomery Counties, and are recommended to the program through high 
school principals, teachers, counselors, talent search, social service agencies, 
and individuals knowledgeable about the program. The academic skills develop- 
ment and counseling services are available to students throughout the school 
year and during the summer program. Academic instruction, tutoring, counseling 
and other related innovative educational experiences are provided for the 
purpose of developing basic academic skills and motivation necessary for 
success in secondary schools and to assure that each student gains a minimum 
of one year's growth in the basic skills areas of communication and mathematics. 

Persons interested in further information regarding the Upward Bound 
Program should contact: The Director of Upward Bound, Room 2101, West 
Education Annex, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742. 
Telephone Number: 454-2116. 

The Division offers bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees in most of 
its programs in addition to various professional certificates. The professional 
programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher 
Education, the Maryland State Department of Education, the American Library 
Association Committee on Accreditation, and the American Home Economics

86 College of Education 



College of Education 



The College of Education offers programs for 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 librarians and resource 
specialists; 4) educational work in trades, industries and other non-school 
settings; 5) pupil personnel, counseling and guidance services; 6) supervision and 
administration; 7) curriculum development; 8) rehabilitation programs; 9) evalua- 
tion 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, curriculum 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 desiring to enroll in the College of 
Education must apply to the Director of Admissions of the University of Maryland 
at College Park and meet the admissions requirements detailed in Section I of 
this catalog. There are no specific secondary school course requirements for 
admission, but a foreign language is desirable in some of the programs, and 
courses in fine arts, trades, and vocational subjects are also desirable for some 
programs. 

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

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

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

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

Degrees. The degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor o. 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, 
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 Mathematics 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.

teach by arranging for all field experiences. It also serves functions of program 



College of Education Departments, Programs and Curricula 87 



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 
Maryland and the Music Educators National Conference established the MENC 
Historical 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. Materials in the following categories are 
collected; archival documents of MENC; 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 Manpower Services is one of the operating Divisions of the Department of 
Industrial Education. The Center was established in 1968 as a joint project of the 
Department of H.E.W. and the University. The Center receives support from 
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 also 
serves as a multi-media resource providing and developing materials specifically 
related to the career and vocational training of handicapped people. 

Program content, professional issues and participant concerns are in- 
tegrated 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 1 number of children. These services are a part of the program 
in corrective/ remedial reading offered to teachers on the graduate level. 

Science Teaching Center. The Science Teaching Center has been designed to 
serve as a representative facility of its type to fulfill its functions of undergraduate 
and graduate science teacher education, science supervisor training, basic 
research in science education, aid to inservice teachers and supervisors, and 
consultative services, on all levels, kindergarten through community college. Its 
reference library features relevant periodicals, science and mathematics text- 
books, new curriculum materials, and works on science subjects and their 
operational aspects. Its fully equipped research laboratory, in. addition to its 
teaching laboratories for science methods courses, provides project space for 
both faculty and students. 

Since 1962 the Science Teaching Center has served as the headquarters 
for the activities of the Science Teaching Materials Review Committee of the 
National Science Teachers Association, The Information Clearinghouse on 
Science and Mathematics Curricular Developments, the International Clearing- 
house for A.A.A.S., N.S.F. and UNESCO, started here that year also. Within the 
center is gathered the "software" and "hardware" of science education in what is 
considered to be one of the most comprehensive collections of such materials in 
the world. 

Vocational Curriculum Research and Development Center. Located within 
the Department of Industrial Education, the center provides leadership in 
research and development, resources, and supportive services for individuals 
and groups engaged in industrial, vocational, and technical education curriculum 
development. Available resources include curriculum guides, textbooks, course 
outlines, learning activity packages, teaching aids, professional journals, refer- 
ence books, and catalogs representing local, state, and national curriculum 
trends. 

Study carrels and instructional media facilities are provided for students, 
faculty, local teachers and specialists engaged in vocational curriculum research, 
development and assessment. The center maintains linkages with similar 
regional and national agencies concerned with vocational curriculum research 
and development. 

Student and Professional Organizations. The College sponsors a chapter of 
the Student National Education Association and a Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, an 



Honorary Society in education. A student chapter of the Council for Exceptional 
Children is open to undergraduate and graduate students in Special Education. A 
student chapter of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC) is 
sponsored by the Department of Music, and the Industrial Education Department 
has a chapter of the American Society of Tool and Manufacturing Engineers and 
a chapter of the American Industrial Arts Association. 

In several departments there are informal organizations of students. 

Career Development Center University Credentials Service. All seniors 
graduating in the College of Education (except Industrial Technology majors) are 
required to file credentials with the Career Development Center. Credentials 
consist of the permanent record of a student's academic preparation and 
recommendations from academic and professional sources. An initial registration 
fee enables the Career Development Center to send a student's credentials to 
interested educational employers, as indicated by the student. 

Students who are completing teacher certification requirements, advanced 
degrees and are interested in a teaching, administrative or research position in 
education, or who are completing advanced degrees in library science, may also 
file credentials. 

Other services include vacancy listing in secondary schools and institutions 
of higher learning, notifications of interest-related positions, on-campus inter- 
views with state and out-of-state school systems, and descriptive information on 
school systems throughout the country. 

This service is also available to alumni. For further information contact Mrs. 
Anna Tackett, Assistant Director, Career Development Center, Terrapin Hall, or

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

For Advanced Undergraduates and Graduates. Programs available in the 
Department of Measurement and Statistics lead to the Master of Arts degree 
(thesis or non-thesis option) and to the Doctor of Philosophy degree. The 
master's level program is designed to provide individuals with the necessary skills 
to serve as research associates in various fields and to provide test administra- 
tion, scoring, and interpretation services. The doctoral major program is intended 
primarily to produce individuals qualified to teach courses at the college level in 
educational measurement, statistics, and evaluation, advise in the conduct of 
research studies; and serve as measurement, evaluation, or research design 
specialists in school systems, industry, and government. At the doctoral level, a 
student may choose a specialty within one of three areas: applied measurement, 
applied statistics, and education evaluation. 

Persons interested in majoring in the department must display above 
average aptitude and interest in quantitative methods as applied in the behavioral 
sciences.

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, distributive 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 library 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 modern 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 instruction 
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 serve as a proficiency test and may be taken by a student any time (once a 
semester) to try to fulfill the language requirement. 

Students who have studied languages other than French, German, or 
Spanish, or who have lived for two or more years in a foreign country where a 
language other than English prevails, shall be placed by the 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 
assignments, 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 
methods course for their subject area (or in some programs, be concurrently 
enrolled). Consult your advisor for help in planning your schedule in this regard. 

Art Education. Students in art education may select one of three programs: 
elementary (K-6), secondary (6-12), or dual (K-12) Art Education. The three 
programs are shown below.

Foreign Language Education. The Foreign Language Education curriculum is 
designed for prospective foreign language teachers in secondary schools. The 
current focus is on Spanish, French and German. Students seeking certification 
in the areas of Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Portuguese or Russian must apply for 
certification through a "Credit Count" procedure rather than a departmental 
"Approved Program". Further information can be obtained through a foreign 
language education advisor in the office of Secondary Education. 

A minimum of 30 semester hours in a foreign language plus 12 hours of 
electives in a related area for a total of 42 hours is required. The foreign language 
education advisor must approve the 12 hours of "related area" credit. The 
following requirements must be met within the 30 required hours: one year of 
advanced conversation, one year of advanced grammar and composition, one 
year of survey of literature, one year of advanced literature (400 level) and one 
semester of advanced civilization (300 or 400 level). Equivalents to the above 
must be approved by the appropriate education advisor.

"Foreign Language Education majors and Arts and Humanities certification students are 
strongly advised to elect courses which will enhance their professional preparation (i.e.. EDSE

area of concentration (i.e.. a second foreign language, leaching English to speakers of other 
languages. English, social studies, etc.). Students who plan to teach a foreign language must 
contact an education advisor during the freshman year in order to plan an integrated program of 
specialized professional and liberal education 
"Must be taken concurrently with student teaching. 

Home Economics Education. The Home Economics Education curriculum is 
designed for students who are preparing to teach home economics. It includes 
study of each area of home economics and the supporting disciplines. Fifteen

Music Education. The curriculum in music leads to a Bachelor of Science degree 
in education with a major in music education. It is planned to meet the demand for 
specialists, supervisors and resource teachers in music in the schools. The 
program provides training in the teaching of vocal and instrumental music and 
leads to certification to teach music at both elementary and secondary school 
levels in Maryland and many other states. There are two options. The vocal 
option is for students whose principal instrument is voice or piano; the 
instrumental option is for students whose principal instrument is an orchestral or 
band instrument. 

All students are carefully observed at various stages of their programs by 
members of the Music Education faculty. This is intended to insure the maximum 
development and growth of each student's professional and personal competen- 
cies. Each student is assigned to an advisor who guides him or her through the 
various stages of advancement in the program of music and music education.

The Social Foundations area in the College of Education offers courses in 
the history, philosophy and sociology of education and the Foundation of 
Education course required of all students majoring in Education (EDSF 301). 
These courses treat the educational enterprise as it relates to the political, social, 
and economic structure of society and the values which underlie a particular 
society. "Freedom in Education" and "Existentialism and Education" are 



examples of topics offered through workshops in this area. Other timely courses

foundations of education, life-long learning, policy planning, multi-cultural educa- 
tion, and youth in historical perspective, are offered under a special topics 
designation (EDSF 409). A broad perspective is sought both for classroom 
teachers and prospective leaders in the profession. 

The area also offers the master's degree and doctorates in comparative 
education (the study of educational systems in other regions of the world); history 
of education; philosophy of education; and sociology of education.

The Special Education Department offers an undergraduate program which 
prepares students for teaching positions in public school and other special 
education programs. Students who complete the undergraduate program receive 
the Bachelor of Science degree and meet Maryland State Department of 
Education requirements for the standard professional certificate in special 
education. 

Students are required to obtain a "C" grade in all College and Department 
course work. In addition, there is limited enrollment in all Special Education 
course work which may affect a student's program. 

Students at the undergraduate level pursue a sequential comprehensive 
special education program. Progress through the program is dependent upon the 
student's achieving the requisite special teaching competencies required for 
graduation. Field experiences are required of all students in the department prior 
to their student teaching experiences. 

Modifications in this program are under development for implementation in 
the Fall of 1 981 . Students should contact an advisor in the Department of Special 
Education for additional information and to design their program of study. The 
following currently represents a "typical" program. However, the program does 
not reflect new University Studies Requirements which become effective Fall, 
1980.

The College of Human Ecology 99 



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

The faculty utilizes existing knowledge and generates new knowledge, 
techniques and methods based on research, while providing opportunities 
through laboratory, practical and field experiences for making knowledge and 
innovative discovery more meaningful to the individual. Through these 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, enrich family life (in all 
its various forms). 

3. Effective resource utilization including consumer competence. 

4. The individual's physiological health and development. 

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

6. Effective use of leisure time. 

7. The enrichment of family life. 

In accordance with the philosophy of this College all four departments are 
interrelated and cooperate in the achievement of these goals. The activities of 
the Department of Family and Community Development emphasize mainly goals 
1 through 3 and 7; the Department of Food, Nutrition and Institution Administra- 
tion, 2 through 4; and with different foci and priorities, the activities of the 
Departments of Textiles and Consumer Economics, and Housing and Applied 
Design emphasize goals 2, 3 and 5. Goal 3 is concerned with consumer 
competence in areas such as food clothing, shelter, transportation, insurance, 
health, leisure, etc. It is an integrative, interdisciplinary, educational concept 
which necessitates and receives contributions from all four departments. Goal 6 
is becoming increasingly important with a reduced work week, earlier retirement 
and increases in the over-65 population, suggesting interdepartmental and 
interdisciplinary programs. 

Objectives 

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

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

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

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 as 
well as a Center for Family, Housing and Community Development. 

Located between two large cities, the College provides unusual opportuni- 
ties 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 enriching 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 curriculum includes at least one major course in the field of textiles. 

AATCCSIudent Chapter. The University of Maryland Chapter of the 
American Association of Textile Chemists and Colonsts provides students with an 
early opportunity to become associated with the national professional organiza- 
tion of AATCC and to advance at the local level the aims and goals of the parent 
national organization. Student members develop contacts with professionals and 
fellow students at AATCC meetings. These contacts help to orient the student to 
the job market and to new developments in the field. Students in textile science 
and in textile marketing should be interested in AATCC. 

ASID-Student Chapter. The University of Maryland Student Chapter of the 
American Society of Interior Designers is associated with the professional 
chapter of ASID in Washington D.C. 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. 

Elegant-Student Chapter. The University of Maryland student chapter of 
Elegant provides students interested in apparel design, fashion merchandising 
and textile marketing an opportunity to develop contacts with professionals and 
fellow students at Elegant meetings. These contacts help to orient the student to 
the job market and to new developments in the field. 

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. 

MClC-Student Chapter. The University of Maryland Student Chapter of the 
Maryland Consumer Interest Council gives students an opportunity to understand 
the operational side of consumer protection by interacting with state and local 
figures in Consumer Education, Consumer Protection and Consumer Legislation.

Associate Professors: Myricks, Rubin, Wilson 

Assistant Professors: Churaman, Macklin, Phillips, Tourigny; Valadez 

Instructor: Cohen 

Lecturers: Gordon, Tourigny 

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. 

Graduates of the Department obtain positions in research centers, consult- 
ing firms, voluntary organizations, federal, state, and local governments, and 
international organizations. Their specific jobs may be in such agencies or 
organizations as the Federal Drug Administration, the Department of Housing and 
Urban Development, Planned Parenthood, and United Way. 

There are three interrelated maiors offered by the Department: 

/. 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. 

II. 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 the community. 

///. 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 services; 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. 
The Home Economics Education Program has been suspended and no new 
students are being accepted. Students interested in this program should refer to 
the College of Education.

The area of food nutrition and institution administration is broad and offers 
many diverse professional opportunities. Courses introduce the student to the 



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

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

Experimental foods is designed to develop competency in the scientific 
principles of food and their reactions. Physical and biological sciences in relation 
to foods are emphasized. The program is planned for students who are interested 
in product development, quality control and technical research in foods. The 
nutrition research program is designed to develop competency in the area of 
nutrition for students who wish to emphasize physical and biological sciences. 
The community nutrition program emphasizes applied community nutrition. 
Dietetics develops an understanding and competency in food nutrition and 
management as related to problems of dietary departments; the curriculum is 
approved by the American Dietetic Association. The coordinated dietetic program 
includes clinical experience coordinated with the didactic components, and the 
students are eligible for membership in the American Dietetic Association upon 
graduation. 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.

Lecturers: Byrne, Norton, Thomas 

The Department of Housing and Applied Design offers programs of 
concentration in five areas: Housing, Interior Design, Advertising Design, Cos- 
tume, and Crafts. 



The Department seeks to provide professionally focused instruction in the 
theoretical foundation, methods, and skills pertinent to each concentration area. 
In addition, students are encouraged to acquire a broad base of general 
education by enrolling in elective, recommended, and required courses outside of 
the Department. 

Housing. This program is designed to develop an understanding of the complex 
process by which housing is generated and consumed. It is also intended as an 
introduction to the most important issues in the field, including projections to 
future trends and needs. Graduates will be qualified for employment in the 
housing industry, governmental housing agencies, housing authorities, and 
consumer organizations. They will also be qualified to pursue a program of 
graduate studies in housing or urban affairs. 

Interior Design. This program provides the student with background in design 
theory, design history, problem solving methodology, and techniques of presenta- 
tion. Functional and imaginative applications of design skills to space planning 
and furnishing of commercial and residential interiors are stressed. Special 
courses include considerations of barrier-free design for handicapped and elderly 
users. A student chapter of the professional organization A.S.I.D. and internship 
opportunities provide contact with practicing professionals. Graduates will be 
qualified for employment with interior design firms, architectural firms, or as 
freelance professionals. 

Advertising Oesign. This program provides a foundation in the field of graphic 
communication. It stresses development of professional graphic skills and of 
imaginative visual solutions to problems of page composition, type selection, 
illustration, photography, signage, and the like. Students graduating from this 
program will be qualified to begin a career as graphic designers and seek 
employment in publishing firms or in advertising agencies. A student chapter of 
the professional organization I.G.I, and internship opportunities provide contacts 
with practicing professionals. 

The Costume program has been suspended and no new students are being 
accepted. Students interested in this program should refer to the Department of 
Textiles and Consumer Economics, Textile Marketing/Fashion Merchandising 
and/or Apparel Design programs.

Students in Textiles and Consumer Economics may select one of four 
majors. Each major offers diverse professional opportunities. In addition to the 
requirements 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 technologi- 
cal 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 maior 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/Consumer Technology major combines eco- 
nomics and marketing with a knowledge of basic consumer goods and services. 
The program focuses on consumer decision-making and the degree to which the 
market place reflects consumer needs and preferences. The subject matter 
includes consumption economics, marketing, consumer behavior, consumer law, 
and consumer technology. Two options are open to men and women in this 
program, Consumer Economics or Consumer Technology. Graduates completing 
the Consumer Economics option may work in the planning, marketing and 
consumer relations divisions of business and industry, in program development 
and analysis for government agencies providing consumer protection services or 
in extension and consumer education programs. Graduates completing the 
Consumer Technology option will be prepared for careers in government 
regulatory agencies, trade associations, standards organizations, manufacturing 
and product development, quality assurance and customer relations. 

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.

College of Library and Information 
Services 

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

The library science education program at the undergraduate level fulfills the 
State of Maryland's requirements for the Educational Media Associate Certificate, 
Level I. Its graduates are prepared to work in school media centers under the 
guidance of the Educational Media Generalist, Level II, which is normally 
achieved with completion of the master's 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 educa- 
tion 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 offers curricula 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 



College of Physical Education, Recreation and Health 107 



the fields of health, of physical education, and of recreation and leisure. The 
service section of each department offers a wide vanety of courses for all 
University students. These courses may be used to fulfill the General University 
Requirements, and as electrves. 

In addition to its vanous on-campus offenngs, 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 Adults' 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 
laboratones, 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 vanous physical education 
classes pnmarily 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. 

Preinkert Field House. There is an additional 75x35 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 primarily 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 supenmposed 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 prirnanly 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 pnor 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: (1 (provide a general 
basic or core education and prepare for later specialization by giv'ng a foundation 
m 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 curnculums 
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: (l)have the recom- 
mendation of the University supervising teacher, and (2) must have fulfilled all 
required courses for the B.S. degree except those in the Block Student Teaching 
Semester, excluding those exceptions approved by each department. The 
student must obtain a grade of C or better in all professional courses in his or her 
curriculum and must register for all courses in the "Block" concurrently. 

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

Certification. The Maryland State Department of Education certifies for teaching 
only when an applicant has a tentative appointment to teach in a Maryland county 
school. No certificate may be secured by application of the student on 
graduation. Course content requirements for certification are indicated with each 
curriculum. A student intending to qualify as a teacher in Baltimore, Washington, 
DC, 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 various professional meetings, brings in speakers 
and promotes various corecreational activities. It has sponsored trips to district 
and national conventions of the American Association for Health, Physical 
Education and Recreation, and is chartered as a student major club of that 
organization. 

Aqualiners. This synchronized swimming club is open to all men and women 
registered in the University. Through weekly meetings the group concentrates on 
additional stroke perfection, individual and group stunts, diving, and experimenta- 
tion with various types of accompaniment and choreographic techniques. An 
original water show is presented each spnng and several demonstrations are 
given each year. Tryouts are held twice a year — once at the beginning of the fall 
semester, and again after the water show during the spring semester. 

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

Gymkana Troupe. The Gymkana Troupe includes men and women students 
from all Colleges who wish to express themselves through the medium of

This curriculum, including three certification options prepares students (1) 
for teaching physical education in the secondary school. (2) for coaching, and (3) 
for leadership in youth and adult groups which offer a program of physical activity. 
The first two years of this curriculum are considered to be an orientation period in 
which the student has an opportunity to gain an adequate background in general 
education as well as in those scientific areas closely related to this field of 
specialization. In addition, emphasis is placed upon the development of skills in a 
wide range of motor activities. Further, students are encouraged to select related 
areas, especially in the fields of biology, social sciences, psychology, health 
education, and recreation as fields of secondary interest. These materially 
increase the vocational opportunities which are available to a graduate in physical 
education. 

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 
during professional activities.

Freshman Year 



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.

Professor and Chairman: Humphrey 

Associate Professors: Churchill, Kuss, Strobell, Verhoven 

Assistant Professors: Colton, Leedy, 

Lecturers: Allen, Kelley, Munson, Upshaw 

Instructors: Calloway, Hamilton, Singleton, 

This curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students who wish to 
qualify for positions in the leisure services fields, and for the needs of those 
students who desire a background which will enable them to render distinct 
contributions to community life. The Department draws upon various other 
departments and colleges within the University for courses to balance and enrich 
its offerings for its leisure studies curriculum. A total of 120 credits are required 
for the Bachelor of Science Degree, with a limit of 72 credits in RECR prefix 
coursework. 

Those majoring in leisure studies have opportunity for observation and 
practical experience in local, county, state and federal public recreation pro- 
grams, in social and group work agency programs, and in the various programs of 
the Armed Forces, American Red Cross, local hospitals and commercial 
recreation establishments. Major students are required to select an Option Area 
of interest around which to center their elective coursework. These Option Areas 
include Administration, Interpretive Services, Program Development, Resource 
Planning and Management, and Therapeutic Recreation. 

An active student University of Maryland Recreation and Parks Society, an 
affiliate of the comparable state and national organizations, provides opportuni- 
ties for University and community service, for practical experience, and for social 
fellowship with those students having mutual professional interests. 

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

Division of Mathematical 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 or 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 
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 

Department of Mathematics 

Department of Physics and Astronomy 

Institute for Physical Science and Technology 

Applied Mathematics Program

General Information 

The MPSE Undergraduate Office, Y-1110 (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. 



College of Engineering 111 

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 stu- 
dent must include 18 credits of humanities and social sciences in the program of 
general studies. 

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

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

4. Courses in the major department. A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution of courses from the Department Chairman and the 
Dean of the College. 

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

Basic Format of the Freshman-Sopomore Years in Engineering. The 
freshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to lay a strong 
foundation in mathematics, physical sciences and the engineering sciences upon 
which the student will later develop a professional program during the upper 
division (junior and senior) years. The College course requirements for the 
freshman year are the same for all students, regardless of their intended 
academic program, and about 75% of the sophomore year course requirements 
are common, thus affording the student a maximum flexibility in choosing a 
specific area of engineering specialization. Although the engineering student 
selects a major field at the start of the sophomore year, this intramural program 
commonality affords the student the maximum flexibility of choice of 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 curriculum for freshmen 
regardless of whether the student plans to proceed through one of the major 
fields designated baccalaureate degree programs or follow any of the mul- 
tidisciplinary 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 1 1 5— as part of their General University 
Requirements. 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 and PHYS 161 are 
prerequisites for many courses required in the sophomore year. ENES 110 
should be taken in summer school or the fall semester. 

"Qualified students may elect to take CHEM 105 and 106 (4 cr. hrs. each) instead of 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. 

College Regulations 

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

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

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



The records of students in the College of Engineering are processed and 
kept in the Engineering Student Affairs Office, J-1107 (454-2421). Inquiries 
concerning 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 1 20 credits; the 
exact number varies with the department. 

B. 39 credit hours which satisfy the University Studies Program as presented 
under Academic Regulations and Requirements in this catalog. Courses 
taken to satisfy these requirements may also be used to satisfy major 
requirements. Students who matriculated prior to Summer 1 980 may satisfy 
this general studies requirement through the General University Require- 
ment program. All students who matriculated in the Summer 1978 session 
or later, must complete six credits of English Composition. 

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 be 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 Engineering, Civil Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or to 
the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with an Engineering option or 
an Applied Science option. Two examples of the Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering are Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Materials. 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, thermodynamics, 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 and industry, in public service, or in graduate study and 
research. 

General Information. Increasingly, the boundary between engineers and applied 
scientists or applied mathematicians becomes less distinct. The various branches 
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 understanding the scientific principles of a situation, he is 
concerned with the timing, economics and values that define the useful 
application of those principles. 

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 high school preparation. Pre-engineering students normally enroll 
in an academic program in high school. The course of study should include 3- 
1 /2-4 years of college preparatory mathematics (including algebra, trigonometry, 
plane and solid geometry and pre-calculus mathematics). In addition, students 
should complete one year each of physics and chemistry. 

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 the 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. 

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 



112 College of Engineering 



4. Effective with students enrolling in the College of Engineering in Spring 
1 979 or thereafter: a grade of C or better is required in all courses with ENL or 
ET_ prefixes that are presented towards the requirements of a degree. 

5. The College of Engineering requires that a minimum of eighteen (18) 
semester credit hours out of the 30 hour General University Requirement 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 from the Engineering Student Affairs Office (J-1 107) a list of 
many courses which satisfy this requirement. 

6. A University Studies Program shall take effect with students entering 
UMCP beginning in May 1980. The University Studies Program will replace the 
General University Requirements for students entering in May 1980 and 
thereafter. Students who have matriculated prior to that date may elect to satisfy 
either the General University Requirements or the new University Studies 
Program. All students who matriculated in the Summer 1978 session or later, 
must complete six credits of English composition. 

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

A maximum of one-half of the degree credits (approximately 60-65 
semester hours) may be transferred 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 Engineering. 

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

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

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

The student retains the normal freshman-sophomore program to afford time 
for the selection of a major field of engineering — or to determine whether to 
continue in engineering— without a commitment to either the regular four-year or 
the Co-op Plan of Education. A more mature and meaningful series of 



professional internship assignments are possible to benefit both the student and 
the professional partner. Also, the plan is readily adaptable to the needs of the 
student transferring to the University from the engineering transfer programs of 
community or state colleges. 

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

t Students enroll for ENCO 408 and 409 (12 nondegree credits). 

§ These courses could possibly be taken during the evening at the University College, or al a 

college located near your employment. 

Although the above study-intern schedule depicts the student interning for 60 weeks, the 

minimum number is 50 weeks. 

Students make their own arrangements for board and lodging while on their 
periods of internship. Frequently the participating industrial company or govern- 
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 
intern fee is payable at the beginning of each intern period and is not refundable. 

Wind Tunnel Operations Department. The Wind Tunnel Operations Depart- 
ment conducts a program of experimental research and development in 
cooperation with the aircraft industry, agencies of government and other 
industries with problems concerning aerodynamics. Testing programs cover a 
variety of subjects including all types of aircraft, ships, parachutes, radar 
antennas, trucks, automobiles, structures, and exterior equipment subject to high 
winds. 

The Department has a 7.75 x 1 1 -foot wind tunnel that can be operated at 
speeds from to 240 mph. This facility has powered model drive equipment, and 
auxiliary vacuum and high pressure air supplies for boundary layer control 
studies. Supporting shops include complete woodworking, machine shop, photo- 
graphic, and instrumentation facilities. 

The full-time staff of the department includes engineering, computing, shop, 
and technical operations personnel. This staff cooperates with other faculty and 
students in the College of Engineering on problems of mutual interest. 

Professional Societies Each of the major departments sponsors a student 
chapter or student section of a national engineering society. The student 
chapters sponsor a variety of activities including technical meetings, social 
gatherings and college or university service projects. Students who have selected 
a major are urged to affiliate with the chapter in their department. The names of 
the organizations together with the location of the student lounge or office of a 
contact person:

Engineering Honor Societies The College of Engineering and each of the 
engineering departments sponsors an honors society. Nominations or initations 
for membership are usually extended to junior and senior students based on 
scholarship, service and/or other selective criteria. Some of the honors organiza- 
tions are branches of national societies, others are local groups:

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

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

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 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, biochemical engineering, and process simulation and control 
are available. The latter programs are interdisciplinary with other departments at 
the University. 

The departmental programs prepare an undergraduate for continued 
graduate study or immediate industrial trial employment following the baccalaure- 
ate degree. 

The chemical engineering program involves the application of sound 
engineering and economic principles— and basic sciences of mathematics, 
physics and chemistry — to process industries concerned with the chemical 
transformation of matter. The chemical engineer is primarily concerned with 
research and process development leading to new chemical process 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.

Technical Elective Guidelines 

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING 

Eleven (11) credits of technical electives are required. It is recommended 
that they be taken during the senior year. 
Additional guidelines are as follows: 

1 . Two courses must be taken in one of the areas of specialization given in the 
attached Table. One of these two courses must be a lecture course; the 
other, a laboratory course. 

2. The remaining technical electives will nominally also be chosen from the list 
given in the Table. Upon the approval of your advisor and written permission 
of the Department Chairman or Program Director, a limited degree of 
substitution may be permitted. Substitutes, including ENCH 468— Research 
(1-3 cr.) must fit into an overall plan of study emphasis. 

3. As noted in the Table, several of the technical elective courses are 
sequenced. Check recommended prerequisites when planning your techni- 
cal electives.

Civil Engineering Curriculum. 

Civil engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction and 
operation of large facilities associated with man's environment. Civil engineers 
specialize in such areas as environmental engineering, transportation systems, 
structures, water resource development, water supply and pollution control, 
urban and regional planning, construction management, and air pollution control. 
Many civil engineers enter private practice as consulting engineers or start their 
own businesses in the construction industry. Others pursue careers with local, 
state, and federal agencies or with large corporations. 

The undergraduate program is founded on the basic sciences and empha- 
sizes 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 during his or her 
professional career. Further, the program stresses the balance between technical 
efficiency and the needs of society. The graduate is prepared to enter one of the 
areas mentioned above, or he or she can move into new areas of specialization 
such as oceanographic engineering or the development of facilities for extra- 
terrestrial environments. 

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

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. 

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, electro-mechanical 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 (pi): 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 principle before he or she can 
apply them to special problems. The fire protection curriculum emphasizes the 
scientific, technical and humanitarian aspects of fire protection engineering and 
the development of the individual student. 

The problem and challenges which confront the fire protection engineer 
include the reduction and control of fire hazards due to processes subject to fire 
or explosion in respect to design, installation and handling, involving both 



physical and human factors; the use of buildings and transportation facilities to 
restrict the spread of fire and to facilitate the escape of occupants in case of fire; 
the design, installation and maintenance of fire detection and extinguishing 
devices and systems; and the organization and education of persons for fire 
prevention and fire protection.

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

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 industnes, railroad, rubber and 
plastics, safety, solar energy, textiles and underwater technology. 

There are many career opportunities in all of these fields. In particular, the 
areas of design, systems analysis, management, consulting, research 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, matenals, 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 
Engineering program. 

Students choosing nuclear 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 nuclear engineering as their secondary field should 
seek advice from a member of the nuclear engineering faculty prior to their 
sophomore year.

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 Studies-Fire Science Degree 
program requires that an individual complete an approved associate degree 
program in Fire Science. The upper division of a four-year program leading to a 
B.S. in Urban Studies-Fire Science is taken at the College Park Campus. The 
upper division fire science courses are structured to build on fundamental 
concepts developed at the community college level. The primary focus of these 
courses is the analysis of current technology in fire protection, urban fire service 
delivery criteria, and research for the improved provision of public fire safety. 

* This program will be discontinued by the College of Engr. For information

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

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

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

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

Astronomy majors are required to take an introductory 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 Astronomy) and two 400 level astronomy 
courses are required for the major. 

Students majoring in astronomy are also required to obtain a good 
background 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 Astronomy" which is available from the Astronomy Program office. 
Note: Some changes in the required program for Astronomy majors are under 
discussion. Check with the Astronomy 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 many opportunities for part-time research 
participation which may develop into full-time summer projects. An honors 
seminar is offered for advanced students, credit may be given for independent 
work or study; and certain graduate courses are open for credit toward the 
bachelor's degree 

Students for the Honors Program are accepted by the Department's Honors 
Committee on the basis of recommendations from their advisors and other faculty 
members. Most honors candidates submit a written report on their research 
project, which together with an oral comprehensive examination in the senior 
year, concludes the program which may lead to graduation "with Honors (or High 
Honors) in Astronomy." 

Courses for Non-Science Majors. There are a variety of Astronomy courses 
offered for those who are interested in learning about the subject but do not wish 
to major in it. These courses do not require any background in mathematics or 
physics and are geared especially to the non-science major. ASTR 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 CMSC 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 MATH 
150, 151) with at least a "C" average as supporting course work. Additional 
mathematics and statistics courses are recommended but not required. 

3. 39 credit hours which satisfy the University Studies Program as presented 
under Academic Regulations and Requirements in this catalog. Courses 
taken to satisfy these requirements may also be used to satisfy major 
requirements. Students who matriculated prior to Summer 1 980 may satisfy 
this general studies requirement through the General University Require- 
ment program. All students who matriculated in the Summer 1978 session 
or later, must complete six credits of English Composition. 

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, CMSC 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 material is similar. As a terminal course, CMSC 103 attempts to cover 
more topics but at less depth than CMSC 110. 

Majors should take the CMSC 110. 120 sequence in their first year. Those 
students who have programming background in a language such as FORTRAN 



Other Mathematical and Physical Science Departments, Programs and Curricula 121 



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 211, 
311, 411, 412, 415; Information Processing: CMSC 220, 420, 426; Numerical 
Analysis: CMSC 460, 470, 471; Programming Languages: CMSC 330, 430, 432, 
435; 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 
prerequisites 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 these programs include the CMSC 110. 120 sequence during the first year 

Honors 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 ot 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 comput- 
ers, 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).

122 Other Mathematical and Physical Science Departments, Programs and Curricula 



A student intending to major in mathematics should complete the introducto- 
ry sequence MATH 140, 141, 240, 241 or the corresponding honors sequence 
MATH 1 50, 1 51 , 250, 251 and should have an average grade of at least B and no 
grade less than C in these courses. 

Each math ma|or will complete with a grade of C or better the following: 

1) CMSC 110 or a CMSC course having CMSC 110 as a prerequisite. 

2) Math 143 or an upper level MATH/STAT/MAPL course having CMSC 110 
as a prerequisite. 

3) Eight MATH/MAPL/STAT upper level courses (i.e. at the 400 level or 
above). 

The 8 courses will include: 

a) Math 410-411 (Students successfully completing Math 250-251 are ex- 
exmpted 

from Math 410-411 and receive credit for two upper level 
courses.) 

b) One course from among Math 401, Math 405, Math 474, MAPL 471 

c) One course from among Math 414, Math 415, Math 462, Math 472, 
Math 436, or Math 246 (if Math 246 is chosen it will not count as 
one of the 8 upper level required courses). 

d) Four other courses selected by the student. 

EDSE 372 may be used to replace one of the four elective upper 
level MATH/MAPL/STAT courses. 

Undergraduate Math/Stat Majors with an interest in applied mathemat- 
ics are permitted with the approval of the Undergraduate Office 
to substitute two courses from outside Mathematics for one of the 
four elective upper level mathematics courses. These courses must 
have a strong mathematical content. 

None of the following courses will be allowed as one of the 8 upper level 
required courses: Math 400, 461, 478, 481, 482, 483, 484, 488, 490 and 
Stat 464. 

e) At least four of the required eight upper level courses must be taken 
from the Department of Mathematics, University of Maryland College 
Park campus. 

4) In order to broaden the students mathematical experience, each Math/Stat 
major must complete, with a grade of C or better, a 3 course sequence in a 
supporting area. Each of the courses in such a sequence should make 
substantial use of mathematics. For a list of supporting courses, see the 
departmental brochure available through the Undergraduate Mathematics 
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, 411,420.. Students preparing 
for graduate school in mathematics should include MATH 403, 404 or 405, 
410, 411, 413 (463 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 required to teach mathemat- 
ics at the secondary level: MATH 402 or403, 430 or 431, and EDSE 372. 
(EDSE 372 is acceptable as one of the eight upper level math courses 
required for a mathematics major.) These additional courses are particularly 
suited for students preparing to teach: MATH 406, 444, 463, STAT 400 and 
410. EDHD 300, EDSF 301, EDSE 350, and 330 are necessary to teach 
before registering for these courses, the student must apply for and be 
admitted to teacher education. 

3. Statistics: For a student with a 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, 440, 450, and MAPL 477 should be considered. For operations 
research MAPL 477 and/or STAT 411 should be added or perhaps 
substituted for STAT 450. To prepare for graduate work, STAT 410 and 420 
give the best background, with STAT 41 1 , 421 , 440, 450, and 460 added at 
some later stage. 

4. Computational mathematics: there are a number of math courses which 
emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics including the use of 
the computer. They are MAPL 460, 470, 471, 477; MATH: 472, 474, 475. 
Students interested in this area should take CMSC 1 10 as early 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 Depart- 
mental 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, 241 H). 
They may enroll in the honors calculus sequence if invited by the Mathematics 
Departmental Honors Committee. However, the Mathematics Departmental 
Honors calculus sequence and the General Honors Program are distinct, and 
enrollment in one does not imply acceptance in the other. 

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

Pi Mu Epsilon. The local chapter of Pi Mu 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 Mathematics 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 atmosphere requires 
a firm background in the basic sciences and mathematics. To be suitably 
prepared for 400-level courses in meteorology, the student should have the 
following background: Either the physics major series PHYS 191-296 or the 
series PHYS 161, 262, 263; the mathematics series MATH 140, 141, 240, 241 
and either the series CHEM 103, 104 or CHEM 105, 106. In addition, natural 
science background courses in astronomy (such as ASTR 181, 182. or 350), 



Other Mathematical and Physical Science Departments, Programs and Curricula 123

Purpose. This program is suggested for many types of students: those whose 
interests cover a wide range of the physical sciences; those whose interests have 
not yet centered on any one science; students interested in a career in an 
interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences; students who seek a broader 
undergraduate program than is possible in one of the traditional physical 
sciences; students interested in meteorology; preprofessional students (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 
1 1 2 without a laboratory and PHYS 1 1 4 and 1 1 7 with laboratory are designed to 
satisfy the University Studies distribution requirements (PHYS 106 may be taken 
with the lab PHYS 107 to satisfy the lab requirement). 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- 



124 Other Mathematical and Physical Science Departments, Programs and Curricula 



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 195, 196 in the first year and 

295, 296 in the second year. Transfer students who come with a different set of 
introductory courses either will be put into an appropriate course in this sequence 
or will take bridging courses, such as PHYS 404, 405, (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 a grade 
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 writing 



about the general happenings of the day in the physical and life sciences, or 
some students may prefer writing about the span from a pure science to its 
applied technology. Others may prefer writing about one field — such as 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 physical sciences: 
A recommended approach would be to take the Physical Sciences Program with 
a minor in journalism. The Physical Sciences Program consists of a basic set of 
courses in physics, chemistry and mathematics, followed by a variety of courses 
chosen from these and related disciplines: astronomy, geology, meteorology and 
computer science. 

Writing about the life sciences: A recommended approach would be to take 
the Biological Sciences Program with a minor in journalism. The Biological 
Sciences Program includes work in botany, 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, physi- 
cal 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.
