2 General Information 



The University 

Goals For College Park 



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

Universities in General 

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

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

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

College Parl( and the University of Maryland 

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

In 1666 the Delaware Conference Academy was founded by the Methodist 
Church in Princess Anne, Maryland. Title to the institution was acquired by the 
State of Maryland in 1926, and it became a division of the IJniversity of 
Maryland in 1946. It was made an integral part of the University system with 
the name. University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) in 1970. 

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

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

Annotations: 

1 The University is not designed or equipped to rehal>ilitate or incapacitate 
persons who pose a sustantial threat to themselves or to others It may be 
necessary, tfierefore, to remove those individuals from the campus and to 
sever the institutional relationship with tfiem. as provided in this code of 
conduct and by other University regulations ' 

Any punishment imposed in accordance with the code may have the value 
of discouraging the offender and others from engaging in future 
misbehavior In cases of minor disciplinary violations, the particular form of 
punishment may also be designed to draw upon the educational resources 
of ttie University in order to bnng atiout a lasting and reasoned change in 
behavior Ttie underiying ratkjnale for punishment need not rest on 
deterrence or "reform" alone, however A just punishment may also tie 
imposed tiecause it is "deserved" and because punishment lor willful 
offenses affirms the autonomy and integrity of the offender The latter 
concept was well expressed by D J B Hawkins in his essay "Punishment 
and Moral Responsibility" in 7 Modem Law Review 205: 

The vice of regarding punishment entirely from the points of view of 
reformation and deterrence lies precisely in forgetting that a |ust 
punishment is deserved The punishment of men ttien ceases to tie 
essentially different from the training of animals, and the way is open 
for the totalitarian state to undertake the forcible improvement of its 
citizens without regard to whether their conduct has made ttiem morally 
liable to social coercion or not But ment and demerit, reward and 
punishment, have a different significance as applied to men and as 
applied to animals A dog may be called a good dog or a bad dog, but 
his goodness or badness can be finally explained in terms of heredity 
and environment A man, however, is a person, and we instinctively 
recognise that he has a certain ultimate personal responsitMlity for at 
least some of his actions Hence merit and dement, reward and 
punishment, have an in-educible indivklual significance as applied to 
men This is the dignity and the tragedy of the human person 

A similar view was expressed by Justice Powell, dissenting in Goss v 
Lopez (42 L Ed 2d 725, 745): 

Education is any meaningful sense includes the inculation of an 
understanding in each pupil of the necessity of rules and obedience 
ttiereto This understanding is no less important than learning to read 
and write One who does not comprehend ttie meaning and necessity 
of discipline is handicapped not merely in his education but througliout 
his subsequent life In an age when the home and church play a 
diminishing role in shaping the character and value judgments of tt>e 
young, a tieavier responsibility falls upon Itie schools When an 
immature student merits censure for his conduct, he is rendered a 
disservice if appropnate sanctions are not applied 

2. An effort is made in the code to use a simplified numbering and lettering 
system, without use of Roman numerals or subsets of letters and numbers. 
Any part of the code can be found by reference to one number and one 
letter (eg. part 10 (a) explains ttie meaning of expulsion) 

3. Culpable conduct shook) include consckius acts posing a sut>stantial risk o( 
harm to others (eg throwing a heavy object out a tenth fkior window atiove 
a sidewalk) If the act itself, however, is unintended (eg one is distracted 
by a noise while climbing a flight of stairs and drops a tieavy obiect) ttie 
iridividual may have failed to use reasonable care, but is not normally 
deserving of the moral stigma associated with a 'conviction* lor a 
disciplinary offense 

4. Fomner students may be charged lor violations which allegedly occurred 
during their enrollment at the University 

5 Colleges and Universities are not expected to devekip disciplinary 
regulations whk:h are wntten with the scope or precision of a cnminal code 
Rare occasKins may anse wtien conduct is so intierentty and patently 
dangerous to ttie individual or lo others that extraordinary action not 
specifically authonzed in the rules must be taken 

6 Ttie terms 'suspension" and "intenm suspension" are to be distinguished 
throughout the code and are not interchangeable 

7 Disciplinary removal from University housing shouW tie distingoished from 
administrative removal for violations of the residence contract The latter

Code of Student Conduct 1 3 



8. The standard set forth here represents the minimal procedural protection to 
t>e accorded to students charged with most disciplinary violations Students 
who are subiect to lengthy suspensions or to expulsion may be entitled to 
more tormal procedures. includlr>g a hearing with a right to cross-examine 
ttie witnesses against them Goss v. Lopez 419 US 565 (1975)

bound by principles of federal administrative law requlnng agencies to

Horowitz 55 L Ed 2d 124, 136 See. generally. "Violations by Agencies of 
Their Own Regulations' 87 Harvard Law Review 629 (1974) 

10. Respondents In disciplinary proceedings may be directed to answer 
questions concerning their conduct Students who refuse to answer on 
grounds of the Fifth Amendment privilege may tie informed that the hearing 
panel could draw negative inferences from their refusal which might result 
in their suspension or dismissal If the student then elects to answer, his 
statements could not be used against him in either state or federal court

Ewigletjen 297 F Supp 1163 (N.D cal 1969) 

1 1 . The "controlled substances" or "Illegal drugs" prohibited in this section are 
set forth In Schedules I through V in Article 27, part 279 of the Ar^rwtaled 
Code ot Marylar\d 

12. Colleges and Universities should be a fooim for the free expression of 
ideas. In the recent past, however, unpopular speakers have been 
prevented from addressing campus audiences by students who effectively 
"shouted them down " Both Yale and Stanford Universities have treated 
such actions (which are to tie distinguished from minor and occasional 
hecl<llng) as serious disciplinary violations. See the "Report from the 
Committee on Freedom of Expression at Yale University" which Is available 
in the Judicial Programs Office. 

The following language from the Yale report may be used to elat)orate 
upon the intent and scope of part 9 (k) of this code: 

1 . There Is no right to protest within a University building in such a way 
that any University activity is disnjpted. The administration, however, 
may wish to permit some symbolic dissent within a building but outside 
the meeting room, for example, a single picket or a distributor of 
handbills' 

2. "[A] member of the audience may protest in a silent, symbolic fashion, 
for example, by wearing a black arm band. More active forms of protest 
may be tolerated such as briefly booing, clapping hands or heckling. 
But any disnjptive activity must stop (and not be repeated] when the 
chair or an appropriate University official requests silence. 

3. "Nor are racial insults or any other fighting words' a valid ground for 
disruption or physical attack ... The banning or obstruction ot 
lawful speech can never be justified on such grounds as that the 
speech or the speaker Is deemed In'esponsible, offensive, unscholarfy. 
or untrue ■ 

13. A compilation of published regulations which have been reviewed and 
approved by the Vice Chancellor shall be available for public inspection 
during normal business hours in the Judicial Programs Office. 

14. The "controlled substances" or "Illegal drugs" prohibited In this section are 
set forth in Schedules I through V in Article 27, part 279 of the Annotated 
Code of Maryland. 

15. This part and pans twelve and thirteen represent an attempt to give needed 
guidance to those who are assessing penalties Moreover, the direction of 
the guidance is toward imposition of more severe disciplinary sanctions In 
serious cases. Nonetheless, the language concerning "mitigating factors' is 
broad enough to give decisionmakers considerable leeway to "do justice', 
depending upon the facts in each case. The burden of establishing facts in 
mitigation should, of course, be upon the respondent. 

16. There does not seem to be any rational basis for imposing less severe 
penalties for attempts than for completed violations. The authors of the 
Modem Penal Code, for example, have written that: 

To the extent that sentencing depends upon the antisocial disposition of 
the actor and the demonstrated need for a corrective action, there is 
likely to be little difference in the gravity of the required measures 
depending on the consummation or the failure of the plan. 

See LaFave, Criminal Law Treatise p. 453. 

17. These procedures are analagous to those found in the "emergency" 
disciplinary rules adopted by the Board of Regents in 1971 and are 
consistent with the fornial opinion of the Maryland Attorney General on this 
subject, dated January 23, 1969. See also Goss v. Lopez. 419 US. 565 
(1975). 



Nothing in this provision wouk) prohibit the Vice Chancellor from modifying 
the terms of an Interim suspension, so long as the hearing requirement 
specified in part 16 was met For exeimple, a suspended student might be 
allowed to enter University premises solely for the purpose of attending 
classes 

18 Staff members In the Judicial Programs Office should endeavor to arrange 
a balanced presentation before the various judicial boards and may assist 
both complainants and respondents 

19 This language does not effect any change in present policy concerning the 
powers of judicial boards The current Undergraduate Catalog provkles at 
page 22 that the "functions" of the Judicial Programs Office include 
"reviewing and/or approving the recommendations of the boards ..." 
All board decisions, including those rendered by Conference Boards, shall 
be treated as recommendations 

20. See annotation one. supra. The deterrent effect of punishment Is 
diminished if the community is unaware of the number and general nature 
of sanctions imposed. The Director of Judicial Programs may. for example, 
arrange for publication of the statistical report in ttie campus press each 
semester. 

21 . Boards established pursuant to this section might include modified versions 
of the present "Greek" or residence hall boards 

22. It is Intended that a quorum will consist of three members (out of five). The 
authority to appoint ad hoc boards should be broadly construed and might 
be especially useful, for example, when a judicial board or the Senate 
Committee is charged with hearing a case involving one of its own 
members. The final determination as to whether a panel is "unable to hear 
a case' should be within the discretion of the Director of Judicial Programs. 

23. The power of confirmation represents a significant grant of authority to the 
Senate Committee. The committee is presently undenjtilized and might best 
contribute to the judicial system by becoming more intimately Involved with 
it. Moreover, confirmation procedures will give committee members direct 
contact with board members and will also allow the committee to exercise 
more control over the quality of Judicial Board decisions. 

24. Proposed bylaws must be submitted to the Attorney General for review. 

25. It could be a public embarassment for the University to have a student 
charged with or convicted of a serious crime sit in judgment over other 
students in disciplinary proceedings. The various state criminal codes are 
usually so broad and archaic, however, that automatic suspension or 
removal should not result from any violation of any law (e.g.. New York 
makes it a criminal misdeameanor (or anyone "to dance continuously in a 
dance contest for twelve or more hours without respite"). 

26. Case referrals should not be limited to members of the "campus 
community." A student who assaults another person on campus should not 
escape University judicial action merely because the person assaulted was 
a visitor (or, as in a recent case, a former student who had just withdrawn 
from the University.) 

27. The Director of Judicial Programs may appoint a trained volunteer from the 
campus community to serve as the complainant. It would be preferable, 
however, to employ a "community advocate' to present all disciplinary 
cases. 

Several measures in the code are designed to restore balance In 
disciplinary proceedings, even in those cases in which the complainant is 
inexperienced with administrative adjudication: 

(a) a hearing officer may be appointed in complex or serious cases. See 
part 32 (p). 

(b) the role of attorneys or advisors may be restricted. See part 33 and 
annotation 39. 

(c) the "disciplinary conference" procedure is designed to eliminate 
adversary proceedings in minor cases. See parts 30-31 and annotation 
29. 

28. Staff members may consider the mitigating factors specified in part 1 1 to 
determine the permissible sanction to be imposed if the respondent is 
found guilty of charges. For example, a student involved in a minor 
altercation might be charged pursuant to part 9 (a), but referred to a 
disciplinary conference, thereby precluding the possibility of expulsion or 
suspension for the alleged misconduct. 

29 The hearing procedures specified at part 32 need not be followed in 
disciplinary conferences Instead a disciplinary conference would normally 
consist of an informal non-adversarial meeting between the respondent and 
a staff member in the Judicial Programs Office. Complainants would not be 
required to participate, unless their personal testimony was essential to the 
resolution of a dispositive factual issue in the case. Documentary evidence 
and written statements could be relied upon, so long as the respondent 
was given access to them in advance and allowed to respond to ttiom at 



14 Code of Student Conduct 



the conference. Respondents would also be allowed to bring appropriate 
witnesses witti them and might tje accompanied by a representative, who 
may participate In discussions, although not in lieu of participation by the 
respondent. 

The conference procedure Is designed to reduce the steady growth of 
unnessary legalism In disciplinary proceedings The worst features of the 
adversary system (Including the concept that judicial proceedings are a 
"contest" to be "won" by clever manipulation ol procedural rules) undermine 
respect for the rule of law Colleges and universities can and should be a 
testing ground for development of carefully reasoned alternatives to cunent 
procedural excesses in the larger society ' 

Procedures comparable to the disciplinary conference (referred to as 
"structured conversations") are suggested by David L. KIrp In his 1976 
Stanford Law Review article "Proceduralism and Bureaucracy: Due Process 
in the School Setting" 38 Stanford Law Review 841 : 

The benefits of such conversations In the school setting may better be 
appreciated by contrasting them with the typical due process hearing 
Hearings are designed to determine the facts of a particular 
controversy, and apply predetermined rules to the facts thus found. At 
that point, the function of the hearing Is at an end. The wisdom of the 
underlying substantive rules has no relevance, nor is broader 
discussion of grievances generally encouraged, unless it is somehow 
pertinent to the dispute at hand 

Conversation knows no such limits It too serves as a vehicle for 
resolving what are likely to be factually uncomplicated disputes, but it 
does more than that. It enables students to feel that they are being 
listened to and may encourage them to raise underlying grievances. It 
provides administrators with a relatively inexpensive vehicle for 
monitoring, and hence a basis for reshaping institutional relationships. 
The outcome of these orderly thoughtful conversations' may well be 
decisions different in their particulars from what might othenwise have 
been anticipated: repeated conversations which touch upon similar 
student grievances may ultimately lead disciplinarians to reassess 
whether control is so vital, and collat>oration so improbable, as a means 
of assuring institutional order. 

The Conference procedure would not be used in any case which might 
result in any form of separation from the University. Accordingly, the 
procedure appears to meet or exceed the due process requirments set 
forth by the United States Supreme Court for cases involving suspensions 
of ten days or less. In Goss v. Lopez the Court held: 

we stop short of construing the Due Process Clause to require, 
countrywide, that hearings in connection with short suspensions must 
afford the student the opportunity to secure counsel, to confront and 
cross-examine witnesses supporting the charge, or to call his own 
witnesses to verify his version of the incident. Brief disciplinary 
suspensions are almost countless. To impose in each such case even 
truncated trial-type procedures might well overwhelm administrative 
facilities in many places and. by diverting resources, cost more than it 
woukl save in educational effectiveness. Moreover, further formalizing 
ttie suspension process and escalating its formality and adversary 
nature may not only make it too costly as a regular disciplinary tool but 
also destroy its effectiveness as pan of the teaching process. 

On the other hand, requiring effective notice and an informal hearing 
permitting the student to give his version of the events will provide a 
meaningful hedge against erroneous action At least the disciplinarian 
will be alerted to the existence of disputes about facts and arguments 
about cause and effect. He may then determine himself to summon the 
accuser, permit cross-examination, and allow the student to present his 
own witnesses In more difficult cases, he may permit counsel In any 
event, his discretion will be more informed and we think the risk of error 
substantially reduced (42 L Ed 2d 725, 740) 

30. The case file consists of matenals which would tie considered 'educatk>n 
records', pursuant to ttw Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
Personal notes of University staff members or complainants are not 
included. 

31 . Determinations made In accordance with parts 30 and 31 are not 
appealable

32. internal subpoenas may be deslral}le, since cases have arisen in whk:h

to the indifference and lethargy of potential witnesses A student who 
refuses to respond to a subpoena may bo charged with a violation of part 
9(n) of the code 

The Director of Judicial Programs shouW not approve a subpoena unless 
the expected testimony wouk) be clearly relevant. Likewise, a 8ut>poena 
designed to embarrass or fiarass a potential witness shoukj not be 
authorized 

The subpoena power specified here is not designed to reach documents or 
other matenals 

33 Board memtiers should be disqualified on a case by case basia only: 
permanent removal should be accomplished in accordance with Part 25. 
Board members should not be readily disqualified The term 'personal bias" 
involves animosity toward a party or favoritism toward the opposite party 
See. generally. Davis. Administrative Law Treatise 'Bias" Section 12 03 

34 See Bernstein v. Real Estate Commission 221 Md 221 (1959). which 
established the 'preponderance' standard for state administrative 
proceedings 

35. Testimony containing hearsay may be heard, if relevant A final 
determination should not be based on hearsay alone 

36. Every statement or assertion need not be proven For example, board 
memtiers may take notice that many students commute to the University 

37. Student presiding officers are often at a disadvantage when the respondent 
is represented by an attorney The proceedings might progress more 
rapidly and efficiently if a special presiding officer were appointed. 
Generally, a staff member in the Judiaal Programs Office would be 
selected for such a responsibility, although other University employees with 
legal training might also be called upon 

38. Information pertaining to prior findings of disciplinary and residence hall 
violations might be reported, as well as relevant cnmlnal convk:tions Prior 
allegations of misconduct sfiould not be disclosed. 

39. A disciplinary hearing al the University is not analogous to a criminal tnal 
The presiding officer and the board advisor are authorized to exercise 
active control over the proceedings in order to elicit relevant facts and to 
prevent the harassment or Intimidation of witnesses. No party or 
representative may use threatening or abusive language, engage In 
excessive argumentation, intenupt the proceedings with redundant or 
frivolous objections, or otherwise disrupt the tiearlng 

Students have not been determined to have a constitutional right to full 

legal representation In University disciplinary hearings The pnvilege of 

legal representation, granted in this part, should be carefully reviewed in 
any subsequent revision of the code 

40. Punishment of one or several indlvkJuals for the acts of others should be 
avoided if the identities of the specific offenders can be readily ascertained 

41 Association does not require fomial membership Individuals wtx) might 
reasonably be regarded as regular participants in group or organization 
activities may be held to be associated with the group or organization 

42. Leaders or spokesmen need not be officially designated or elected For 
example, if a group or organizatk>n accepted or acquiesced in tt>e act or 
statement of an indivklual associated with it. that irxJivkJual might 
reasonably be regarded as a leader or a spokesman for tt>e group or

43. "Suspensk>n" includes deferred suspension but not interim suspension or 
suspension which Is withheld See annotation six 

44. Students left vinth a disciplinary record after a disciplinary conlererKe may

may be appealed, pursuant to part 48 

45. The decision will be final and conclusive' on tt>e part of tfie ludicial board, 
but will remain a recommendation to the Director of Judicial Programs 

46 This part is intended to discourage fnvokxis appeals Respondents wlx> ar« 
genuinely Interested in pursuing an appeal can reasonably t>e expected to 
prepare a written brief 

47 Appellate bodies which do not give deference (i e . a presumption o( 
validity) to lower board deciSKms will distort the entire disciplinary system. 
Respondents wouW be encouraged to test their strategy' and "perled ttieir 
technique' tjefore kjwer boards, since ttie matter woukl simply be fieard

Lower board members usually have ttie best access to the eviderKa. 
including an opportunity to observe the witnesses and to ludge their 
deriieanor Members of appellate bodies should be especially careful not to 



Human Relations Code 15 



modify a sanction or to remand or dismiss a case simply because they may 
personally disagree with the lower tx>ard's decision 

The opportunity lo appeal adverse decisions has not been determined to 
be a requirement ol constitutional 'due process" in student disciplinary 
cases * There is presently no legal obstacle to adopting an amendment to 
the code which would eliminate the appellate system altogether

records, and shall not leave any student with a disciplinary record 

52 Disciplinary records may be reported to third parties, in accordance with 
University regulations and applicable state and federal law 

53 Void records shall be treated in the manner set forth in annotation 51 

54 The scope of review shall be limited to the factors specified at part 47 An 
inquiry Into the initial determination of guilt or innocence is not permitted. 
For example, when considering the "nature" of the violation, pursuant to 
pari 47 (c). it is to be assumed that the violation occured and that the 
respondent was responsible for it 

55 Some discretion must be retained to void even "permanent" disciplinary 
records It may be unnecessary, for example, to burden a graduating senior 
with a lifelong stigma for an act committed as a freshman Social norms 
also change rapidly "Unacceptable" conduct in one generation may 
become permissable and commonplace in the next. 



Human Relations Code 

Article I Purpose 

A. The University of Maryland. College Park Campus, affirms its commitments

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 tor 
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 authonzation of 
ttie Chancellor In the event that the Chancelktr 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 tact, together with reasons as he/she may have received from 
the Chanceltor concerning the matter, to the Senate

Student Transfer Poiicies 

The University ol Maryland lully subscribes to the Maryland State Board for 
Higher Education Transler Policies A complete text ol the policy lolkjws 

These Student Transler Policies, developed by a special task tores ol the 
Segmental Advisory Committee, were adopted by the Maryland State Board lor 
Higher Education on November 1. 1979 In view of the Board's sensitivity to ttie 
need ol the institutions and segment tMards to have sufficient lead time to 
make these policies operationat. the new policies shall be effective and 
applicable to students enrolling in Maryland s public poslsecondary education 
institutions in fall, 1960. and thereafter Al that time they will supersede SBHE 
student transfer policies in effect since 1972. 



Preamble 

The major objective ol these policies is to relate in operational ways the 
undergraduate programs ottered in the public sector ol higher education in 
Maryland These policies aim at equal treatment ol native and transler 
students The ettectiveness of these policies, since their promulgation in 
Decemlaer 1972, has been confirmed by the minimal loss ol credits 
experienced by students translening within the public sector, by the apparent 
satislaction ol these students, and by the absence ol appeals concerning ttte 
translerring ol credits 

The intended principal benelactor is the student, who is tiest served by 
current inlormation atiout programs and protected by lirm arrangements among 
the public segments ol higher education in Maryland which permit him to plan a 
total degree program Irom the outset With successful academic performance. 
he or she can make uninterrupted progress even ttiough transfer is involved 
The measures of the ettectiveness ol the plan is maximum translerability ol 
college level credits within the parameters ol this agreement Essentially, 
transler and native students are to be governed by the same academic njles 
and regulations. 

In a complementary way the States interests are served by having its 
higher education resources used optimally by reducing the time taken to 
complete a degree through the avoidance ol repeated class experience. 

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

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

In more specilic ways this documents purpose is ( 1 ) to recommend specilic 
areas ol agreement among the public two-year and lour-year institutions ol 
higher education pertaining to facilitating the transler ol students within these 
segments; (2) to provide lor a continuous evaluation and review ol programs, 
policies, procedures, and relationships attecting transler 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 lor 
appeals

progress" toward your degree or diploma Any student at ttie University ol

weeks of classes must repay to the University of Maryland all financial aid 
received. If the withdrawal occurs after this period, a prorated share of the aid

the appropriate time. Normally the student should average 15 credits per 
semester.

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

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 numtjer of recitations, performances, quizzes, tests, graded 
assignments and/or studenl'instructor conferences to permit evaluation 



30 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



of student progress throughout the course; 
c.) while maierlals remain reasonably current, an opportunity to review 
papers and examinations after evaluation by the instructor 

3. Equal and fair access to all assigned materials 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

4. Consistent, conscientious application to master the content and materials of 
the courses as prescrit>ed; 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 
advisors 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 right to remind the instructor of this policy at any time 
during class. Deps.-tment 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 tjeginning 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 txjtany 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 students program in ortJer 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 
sciences, 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 1980-61 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 thai 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 r^l this program, in combinatkjn with the extensive 
work of the major, to help prepare students to become productive, aware and 
sensitive memtjers 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.

General University Requirements 

Students who began baccalaureate study pnor to May. 1980 may elect to 
complete these requirements rather than the University Studies Program 
requirements (see alxjve) 

In order to provide educatkinal 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 betow 
(For an exception to this regulation, see the Bachelor of General Studies 
Program, page 49 ) 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 Nona of the 30 hours 
may be counted toward published departmental, college or divisional 
requirements lor 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 tiours in ttie 
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 tor these courses as outlined on 
pages 32 and 33 Students are urged to consult with academic advisors for 
guidance in determining which courses in each area best fit indivk)ual 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 Vertial (score announced annually) or an 
acceptable score on the English Advanced Placement Test (score announced 
annually), or by satisfactory completion of a similar wnting course at anotfier 
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-hciur requirement in any of ttie 
three designated areas Credit for such a course may t>e in addition to (he 
12-hour maximum in any area 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 31 



NOTE: Students who began t>accalaureale study alter May. 1978 must 
complete the English composition requirement specified In the Fundamental 
Studies section o( the University Studies Program (see atxsve) Only three 
hours of this six hour requirement may be used to satisfy General University 
Requirements 

Students wtio entered the University prior lo June. 1973 have the option of 
completing requirements under the former General Education Program rather 
than the new General University Requirements Each student is responsible 
for making certain that the various provisions of either set of requirements have 
been satisfied prior to certification for the degree Assistance and advice may 
be obtained from the academic advisor or the Office of the Administrative Dean 
lor Undergraduate Students 

Special note for foreign students 

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

Registration 

1 To attend classes at the University of Maryland it is necessary to process 
an official registration. Registration is final and otiicial 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 students permanent record Courses may be 
added, where space is available, during this period and will appear on the 
students 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 students 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 mari^ed 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 tieing 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 "nonapplicabie" 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 t>e 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 t)00ks 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

this catalog. 

Each candidate for a degree or certificate must file a formal application lor 
it with the Office of Records & Registrations. This must be done by the 
deadline published in the Schedule of Classes for the semester of graduation. 

Credit Unit and Load 

The semester hour, which is the unit ol credit, is the equivalent of a subject 
pursued one period a week for one semester Two or three hours of latjoratory 
or field wori< 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.

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

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 authonze ttie department 
chairperson to dispose of the charges, provided the penalty is accepted by ttie 
student in writing In such case the department chairperson will make a wntten 
report of the matter, including the action taken, to the student s dean or provost 
and to the Judiciary Office 

II 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 ol one memtjer from the faculty of tbe 
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 ttte 
division If the student's dean or provost and the dean or provost administenng 
the tnstnjctional department are the same, a second member of the faculty of 
the college or division concerned is appointed If within junsdictkjn ol the Oean 
for Undergraduate Studies that Dean will appoint the ad hoc Committee on 
Academic Distionesty consisting of two faculty having experience in the 
General Studies Program, one serving as chairperson, and one student in ttui 
program. 

The dean or provost of the instructional department will refer the specific 
report of alleged academic dishonesty to this ad hoc committee and ttie 
committee will hear the case. The hearing procedures before this committee 
will in general conform to those required for student judicial boards The Code 
ol Student Conduct provides that any ad of academic dishonesty, including a 
first offense, will place the student in jeopardy of 'suspension from the 
University, unless specific and significant mitigating factors are present' (part

retained in the Judicial Programs Office for three years from the date of final 
adjudication These records are available to prospective empk>yers and ottier 
educational institutions in accordance with federal regulations Notice has been 
sent to area and regional graduate and professional schools informing ttiem of 
University disciplinary record policy In short, any student committing any act ol 
academic dishonesty will run a serk>us risk of harming his or tier future 
educational and employment opportunities 

The chairman of the committee will report its actions to ttie dean or provost, 
the student's dean or provost, and to the Judiciary Office The dean or provost 
of the instnjctional department will advise the student in writing of ttie 
disciplinary action of the committee and, if it has tieen determined ttiat the 
student sfiould be suspended or expelled, advise the student of ttie right to file

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

Degree Requirements 

1. It is the responsibility of departments, colleges, divisions, or appropriate 
academic units to establish and publish cleariy defined degree 
requirements Responsibility for knowing and meeting all degree 
requirements for graduation in any cun'iculum rests with ttie student Not 
later than the close of the junior year, the student shoukj check with the 
proper authorities to ascertain his or her standing in this respect For this 
purpose the student should tie sure to preserve the copy of the semester 
grade report issued by the Office of Records and Registrations at the ck>se 
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 Part< Campus. 
Candidates (or 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 atxive, 
including at least 12 semester hours required in the major field (in curricula 
requiring such concentration). All candidates for degrees should plan to 
take their senior year in residence since the advanced wori( 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 cun'iculum requires less than 120 credit hours. It is the 
stv^dent'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 Ijaccalaureate degrees 
from the University of Maryland, College Park, must satisfactorily complete 
a minimum ol 150 credits (161 credits if one of the degrees is the B.Arch. 
degree in the School of Architecture). The regularly prescritied 
requirements of both degree programs must be completed. As early as 
possible and in any case no later than the tieginning of the second 
semester tiefore the expected date of graduation the student must file with 
the departments or programs involved and also with the appropriate deans 
and provosts a formal program showing the courses to be offered to meet 
major, supporting area, college, division and General University and 
elective requirements of both curricula. No course used in either curriculum 
to satisfy a major, supporting area, or college or division requirement may 
tie 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

Attendance 

1 . The University expects each student to take full responsibility tor his or her 
academic work and academic progress The student, to progress 
satisfactorily, must meet the quantitative requirements of each course for 
which he or she is registered. Students are expected to attend classes 
regularly, for consistent attendance offers the most effective 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 lor 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 ol the faculty. 

2. In certain courses in-class participation is an integral pan of the work of the 
course. A few examples would t>e courses in public speaking and group 
discussion, courses emphasizing conversation in foreign languages, certain 
courses in physical education, and certain latX5ratory 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 tfie 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 lor a latx)ratory 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 freshn>en: the freshman year is a transitional year. 
Absences of freshmen in the basic freshman courses will be reported to the 
student's dean or division officer when the student has accumulated more 
than three unexcused absences. 

5. Excuses for absences (in basic freshman courses and in courses where 
in-class participation is a significant part of the work of the course) will be 
handled by the instructor in tfie course in accordance with the general 
policy of his or her department and college 

Dismissai of Deiinquent 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 ol scholarship,

provided include both urgent and routine medical care, mental health, health 
education, laboratory. X-ray, and gynecological services. Specific txjurs of 
service are listed in the Health Center brochure. 

Students can taest 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 latjoratory 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

laboratory. X-ray, and limited coverage for mental and nervous disorders.

Academic Advising 

Advising is an essential part of an undergraduate s educatnnal axperlerKcs 
at the University ol Maryland From onentation to graduation, it can provide tfie 
kind ol concerned assistance that helps students interpret, often ennch. ttieir 
perceptions of "being in college ' With its emphasis on decision-making, 
planning, constructive action, effective advising highlights tf>e connections 
between coursework and career, between learning and doing, between 
accepting advice and accepting responsibility 

Advantage* for Studanta— As an active and regular portkrlpant in existing 
advising programs, any student can reasonably expect — 

(1) to better understand his her purposes lo« attending ttie Untveraity. 

(2) to devekjp insights atx>ut personal tiehavior which prorrxjtes improved 
ad|ustment to the campus setting; 

(3) to increase hishor awareness of academic programs and course oWartng* 
at Ck3llege Part<. 

(4) to rrrare Irequently exptore opportunities outside tfie classroom lor

intalleclual and cuttural 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 

Raquli^ Advlaing — 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; 

Student* ori Academic Probation— Each student placed on academic 
probation will receive, at the end o( the semester (or which the probationary 
status IS imposed a statement urging himher to meet with an advisor as 
quickly as possible The Office of the Registrar will have primary, but not 
exclusive responsibility for Issuing lf>ese statements 

When a follow-up meeting does occur, the student's advisor will record this 
(act in the student s official (ile within the division or college Should the same 
student subsequently be dismissed (rom the University, the (act o( his/her 
rrieeting will Ise considered a positive (actor in reinstatement procedures. 

Students DIamlsaad From the University — Each student dismissed (rem the 
University (or academic reasons must, as a condition of reinstatement, moot 
with an academic advisor According to the student's individual needs, this 
meeting may occur l>efore or a(ter reinstatement is granted: in no case, 
however, may a reinstated student complete registration until the (act o( this 
meeting has been acknowledged/recorded by the advisor. 

Student* Who Withdraw — Given circumstances deemed appropriate by the 
Office o( WittxJrawal and Reenrollment, certain students applying for 
reinstatement 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 t>e 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. 

Student* ^4earlng Senior Status — After a student has earned l3etween 
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 

Hnding an Advisor — Undergraduate students at the College Pari< Campus 
are encouraged to use the many advisement opportunities that are available to 
ttiem. 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 of Classes. Students who are unable to locate

Bacheior of General Studies 

The Bachelor ol General Studies program is a flexible major which provides 
an allemalive educational structure lor 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 ob|ectives, whether 
by combining related courses from several departments, by explonng (wo or 
three distinctly separate interests al 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 major courses as in other departments, 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 lor 
graduate programs 

Raqulramonts 

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

2. A minimum of 120 credits must be accumulated with a cumulative 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 mora than 60 credits in any one division may be counted toward the 
required 120 credits 

5 At least 45 credits must be taken at the upper level (courses numbered 300 
or higher): a 2 cumulative grade point average must be obtained in all 
upper level courses 

6 Students entering UMCP without transfer credits beginning in May, 1980 
must complete all University Studies requirements 

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 riHDre infonnation, call or visit the office of the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies (454-2530/1. Room 1115. Hornbake 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 
Requirements or University Studies Requirements according to year of entry. 
The process of applying often involves considerable consultation and several 
drafts of a prospectus, so it should be begun as early as possible. Students 
may be admitted to the Individual Studies Program after completion of 30 
college credits and must be officially approved by the Individual Studies Faculty 
Review Committee prior to the final 30 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 Hornbake 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, stimulating 
level. Students can er>gage, 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 
Ofdinarily apply at the same time as they apply for admission to the University. 
atthough a separate application form is required for General Honors 
Undergraduates 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 ol academic records, recommendations, 
standardized test scores, personal achievement, and other evidences of 
rrrativation and ability 

Members of the Program may enroll in a variety of kinds of courses: special 
introductory colloquia, special honors sections ol basic courses in many 
departments, upper division General Honors seminars, independent study and 
field expenence 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 memtier of the National Collegiate Honors 
Council and of the Northeast Regional Honors Council Students and faculty 
participate regulariy 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 has over 30 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 eariier 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, General Honors Program, University of 
Maryland, College Pari(, Maryland 20742. Telephone: (301) 454-2532. 

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 ol 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 
undergraduate courses, scores in aptitude tests (Medical College Admission 
Test. Law Admission test. Dental Aptitude Test, Allied Health Professions 
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 
arrangements 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'", ttie final 30 hours prior to 
entry into the Schools of Dentistry, Law and Medicine must tie 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 cun'iculum 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 dentjU 
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 tx)th 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 foltows:

Students accepted in the combined Arts-Medicine program may receive the 
B.S. degree (Arts-Medicine) after satisfactory completion of the first year a) the 
University of Maryland Medical School upon recommendation by the Dean, 
School of Medicine and approval by the College Park Campus, the degree to 
be awarded in August following the first year of Medical School. The courses of 
the first year of Medical School constitute the major; the College Park courses 
listed alxjve constitute the supporting area. 

Four-Year Advising Program. No specific major is required for favorable 
consideration by a medical school admission committee. By intelligent planning 
starting in the freshman or sophomore year, the student can meet the 
requirements for the B.S. or B.A. degree in most major programs and can 
include in his or her course work courses specifically prescribed by medical 
schools 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-Medicine degree program will satisfy the minimum requirements of most 
medical schools and are strongly recommended The four-year student's 
program must also include courses required to satisfy major, supporting area, 
college and division requirements. The student is urged to wor1< 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 woric 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 scliool students should 
enroll in a college preparatory cumculum including bkjksgy, 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 Priority date for applying is February. The Scfxxjl uses 
the process of rolling admission for those who apply early The Allied Health 
Professions Admission Test (AHPAT) is required (not for R.N students) and 
should be taken in fall ol the sophomore year Academic pertormance in 
pre-professional courses is an important factor in selection.

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 wortd population and to help beautify man's 
surroundings. The horticulturist specifically, is involved with fnjit 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 private facilities (Landscape Design). Horticultural 
principles are essential to designing the landscape for improvement of the 
human environment Post-harvest tx)rticulture 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 
productton 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 paries, highway systems, botanic gardens and arboretums. 

Majors may prepare for work with handicapped persons as horticultural 
ttierapists 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 
certificatkjn 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 residential and small-scale landscape design. 



Advanced studies in the Department, leading to ttie MS and Ph.D. 
degrees, are available to outstanding students having a strong horticultural 
motivation lor research, university leaching and/or extension education

and management skills needed to work as a golf course superintarxjent. to 
work in commercial or residential lawn care companies or in otfwr 
turfgrass-oriented industries such as pari(S and cemeteries 

To enhance a student's occupational experience, the Institute requires 
participatkin in a Supervised Wor1< Experience program, usually completad 
before taking second-year courses 

A graduate of the Institute is awarded a Certificate in Agnculture specitying 
ttie student's area of specialization Graduatk>n requires trie successful 
completion of 60 credit hours of a recognized program optkjn. completkxi of 
Supervised Worit Experience, and a 2 00 cumulative grade point average 

Though designed as a two-year terminal program, the Institute does not 
restrict continuing education In general, all Institute courses are transferrable 
to the UMCP and UMES campuses. The extent to which Itie courses can be 
applied to a baccalaureate degree will depend on Itie irxlivklual department in

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 
tf>e 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 wori< in Animal 



Science, Botany, Entomology, Microbiology or Zoology. In each case, advising 
will be by the department in which most of ttie work is to t>e taken For orderly 
planning and advising, students are urged to determine their emphasis eariy 
and no later than the t>eginning of the junior year Changes in emphasis 
normally cannot tie 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 laculty of the Science 
Teaching Center of the College of Education for information concerning 
requirements for certification 

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

The Agricultural Experiment Station 

The Maryland Agricultural Expenment Statksn is currently oorKJucting more 
than 200 research projects These are conducted by faculty who supervise and 
direct research assistants, graduate and undergraduate students and 
technicians. The research may be conducted in latxjratories or at one of the 
nine field locations throughout Maryland operated tiy ttie Expenment Statk»n 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 protectk>n of soil end 
water resources Genetic principles are studied arxl applied in tfie improvement 
of turf and ornamentals, vegetable crops, field crops, poultry, dairy and other 
animals SImilariy. patfiological principles are of concern in improvement of 
mettwds of idenfification, preventton and'or control of plant arxJ animal 
diseases Biochemistry plays an important role in evaluating the nutritkinal 
quality ol crops produced, the efficiency of feed conversion tiy poultry and 
animals or the quality of plant and animal products lor human consumption. 
Research in progress is concerned with improvement of processing systems to 
enhance food quality on one hand and tl>e impact of nutritional defksencies and

funds under the Hatch Act as amended, Slate 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, oul-of-classroom" arm of the University, it 
extends {he 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 soNe 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 lor txjth 1862 and 1890 Land Grant 
institutions; and from tf>e State and all 23 counties and Baltimore City in 
Maryland 

General administrative offices of the Maryland Cooperative Extension 
Service are located at the College Part< 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 sen/ice 
faculty at the State level carry joint appointments with leaching 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 
economics, 4-H and youth, community and resource development and energy, 
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 Cooperative 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 frame visits, 
phone and office conferences, and structured events such as meetings, 
institutes, workshops and training conferences Carefully planned teaching 
events include tours, field days, and demonstrations. Indirect communications 
utilize circular letters, radio and television programs, newspaper articles and 
columns, articles in specialized publications, and exhibits to reach a statewide 
audience. 

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

In each county and in Baltimore City competent extension agents conduct 
educational work in program areas consistent with the needs of the citizenry 
and as funds permit. The county staff is supported by a faculty of specialists in 
the Diviskjn of Agricultural and Life Sciences in College Pari< 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 njral 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 worths 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 worit 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 Ijehavior Majors are 
available in American Studies and Russian Studies Faculty representing 
vartous disciplines will advise students on such other-work! 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 ttie 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 arxl Humanities may prepare 
themselves for careers or advanced training in business, government, law, 
leaching, publishing, library work, and museum work, among others. Internship 
opportunities throughout 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 ol 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 justiried. can make 
certain exceptions. Students majoring in architecture and journalism will wori< 
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 provost, 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

TTie Sctxxjl ol Architecture ol the University ol Maryland Is located tietween 
the Nation s Capital and the city of Baltimore, in the midst ol a large number ol 
historic communities and a vaned physical environment The resulting 
opponunity lor environmental design study is unsurpassed TTie School oHers a 
graduate program leading to the degree. Master ol Architecture, and four-year 
undergraduate programs leading to Bachetor o( Science degrees in two major 
liekjs ol 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 wtx) do not plan to pursue a career in 
architecture 

Car«*r Opportunltle*. The B S degrees in architecture and urtian studies will 
qualify the graduate to pursue a career in any ol a numt>er 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 design/buiW field, or transportation planning, 

Alttiough the changing patterns of energy consumption and the changing 
workJ economy can t>e 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 fieW of activity will continue to 
provide personal challenges ol the highest order, the opportunity for varied 
work and lor public service, and the chance to see others t)enefiting from and 
enjoying the products ol one's efforts 

The Schiool's professional program is accredited by the National 
Architectural 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 
architectural design, architectural history and theory, and architectural science 
and technology, and urban design and planning. Although its program is 
demanding, many elecfives — both in architecture and related fields and in the 
sciences and humanities — are also 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 trips, "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 framewor1( 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 bulMing technology, historic 
preservation, architectural archeology, studies in energy conservation, or other 
wor1< for which the School's resources and interests are uniquely suited. 
CADRE thus offers students an opportunity to gain direct, real-wortd 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 wort< 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, 

Facllftlas. The School is housed in a modem, air-conditioned building 
providi^ design wori< statkjns for each student, a large auditorium, and 
seminar and classroom facilities, A well-oquipped woodwori<ing and model 
shop, daritroom facilities, a lab equipped with testing machines and various 
instnjments used in studying the ambient environment, and computer terminal 
facilities are also provided. The library contains some 20,000 volumes and 130 



current periodteals, making it one of the major architectural libraries in the 
Natk>n The slide collection numbers some 120,000 slides on architecture, 
landscape architecture, planning and technical subiects A photo-documentation 
center provkJes students the necessary resources for photographing models 
and drawings 

AdmlMlon*. Admission to the School of Architecture is selective Students

Professor and Director: Wise 

Professor: Bode 

Associate Professor and Associate Director: Kelly 

Associate Professors: Lounsbury, Mintz, Pearson 

Assistant Professors: Caughey. McCarthy 

Visiting Instructor: Keesing 

The program offers an interdisciplinary focus on American culture and 
society in both historical and contemporary sources. Undergraduate majors, 
with the help of advisors, design a program which includes courses offered by 
the American Studies faculty, sequences of courses in Ihe disciplines usually 
associated with American studies (i.e.. history, literature, sociology, 
anthropology, political science, and others), and pertinent courses grouped 
thematically (e.g.. Afro-American Studies, Women's Studies. Ethnic Studies. 
Comparative Cultures, Popular Culture. Urban and Environmental Studies, and 
solorth). 

The major requires 45 hours, at least 24 of which must be at the 300-400 
level. Of those 45 hours. 21 must be in AMST courses, with the remaining 24 
in two 12-hour core areas outside the regular AMST offerings. 

No grade lower than a "C" may be applied toward the major. The program 
recommends that students fulfill the Division's history requirement with an 
American history course, particularly if American history is not one of the core 
areas in the student's program. Lists of courses applicable to the major for 
each of the core areas are available from the program. No courses other than 
those on the lists will be accepted for credit toward the major unless the 
advisor's permission has been granted in writing and placed in the student's 
file.

Two majors are ottered in art: art history and studio. The student wtio 
majors in art history is committed to the study and scholarly Interpretation ot 
existing worlds of art, from the prehistoric era to our times, while the studio 
major stresses the student's direct participation in the creation ot works ol art. 

In spite of this difference. Ixth majors are rooted in the concept of art as a 
humanistic experience, and share an essential common aim; the development 
of aesttietic 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

Recognizing that dance combines tioth 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 eventually is able to integrate his own particular mind-body 
consciousness into a more meaningful whole To facilitate the acquisition ol 
new movement skills, as well as creative and scholarty insights in dance, tlie 
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 (encompassing 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 pertormance and 
cfioreographic 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. Company auditions are held each 
year in the Spring. 

Major course requirements total 48 semester hours in dance and 6 
semester tiours in non-department supporting areas. Of these, a minimum of 
15 semester hours must be taken in dance at the upper division level. Students 
who major in dance may not use DANC courses for more than 60% (72 
credits) of their 120 credit requirement for graduation The specific dance 
courses required for the B.A. degree are DANC 102(2). 109(2), 138(2), 165(3), 
200(3), 208(3), 210(3), 308(3), 471(3), 482(3), or 483(3), 484(3), modem 
tecfinique (12), ballet (4), and jazz (2). The level of technique classes will be 
determined by placement auditions. The six credits in supporting courses are 
selected with tfie prior approval of a faculty advisor. A grade of "C" or higher 
must be attained in all dance courses. Students desiring State of Maryland 
teacher certification should refer to the Dance Education curnculum listed under 
the College of Education to learn about additional requirements. Dance 
Education majors may obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Division of 
Arts and Humanities or a Bachelor of Science degree from the Division of 
Human and Community Resources. 

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

recording of financial events and the reporting of the results of such events for 
an organizatk}n. In a broader sense, accounting consists of all financial 
systems for planning, controlling and appraising performance of an 
organization 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. 

The accounting curriculum provides an educational foundation for careers 
in accounting and other management areas whether in private business 
organizations, government and nonprofit agencies, or public accounting firms. 

Course requirements lor the junior-senior curriculum concentration in 
accounting are as follows:

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credit from Community Colleges. 
The College of Business and Management subscribes to the policy that a 
students undergraduate program below the junior year strauld 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 alxive policy, it is the practice of the College of Business 
and Management to accept in transfer from a regionally accredited community 
college no more than 12 semester hours of worit 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 transfernng from another regionally accredited institution will have 
devoted the major share of his academic effort below the junior year to the 
completion of basic requirements in the litieral 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 ol Business and Management normally accepts transfer credits 
from regionally accredited four-year institutions. Junior and senior level 
business courses are accepted from colleges accredited by the American 
Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Junior and senior level 
business courses from other than AACSB accredited schools are evaluated on 
a course-by-course basis to determine transferability.

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

To receive a Certificate in Afro-American Studies, the student must enroll 
and receive a satisfactory grade in AASP 100 plus at least three (3) of the 
required courses which must include AASP 401, Seminar in Afro-American 
Studies. In addition, the student may also choose a number of approved 
courses from a list of recommended electives to meet the minimum 
requirements of 18 credit hours.

Anthropology has been defined as "the study of man* because it is the only 
discipline which tries to understand humans as a whole — as an animal, as a 
social being, as a literate being — from the very beginning of time and all over 
the world. Anthropologists try to explain differences among 
humans — differences in their physical characteristics as well as their customs, 
behavior, and attitudes Since children learn their culture from the older 
generation, who in turn learned it from the preceding generation, culture is a 
product of the past Anthropologists study the way human culture has grown 
and and changed through time, and the way man has spread over the earth. 
This is not the history of kings and great men or of wars and treaties; it is the 
history, including the present, and science of human krxjwiedge and behavior 

The cross-cultural experience gives us not only specific knowledge of ottier 
cultures, which may be important in a variety of public health, business, 
agricultural and diplomatic endeavors, but also an appreciation of how strongly 
people feel atxjut the cultural patterns with which they grew up The four 
subfields of Anthropology (cultural anthropology, archaeotogy, physical 
anthropology and linguistics) have proven valuable in understanding not only 
foreign cultures, but also segments of our own society, as in urban ghettos or 
in institutions such as hospitals and schools. They all deal with people and 
culture, and thus contribute to the development of the holistic view which, more 
than any other element, characterizes Anthropology as a discipline 

It is becoming increasingly clear that Anthropology has been a definite 
asset in finding jobs in a variety of fields ranging from business to the fine arts 



Whether one goes on to a Masters or a Ph D.. striving to advance the frontiers 
of knowledge concerning our species and the cultural process, or combines the 
ahthropology B A with other specific knowledge and goes out as a city planner, 
development consultant, program evaluator, or whatever, is up to the individual 
At Maryland, we offer you a solid backgrourKJ. a base from which you can take 
off in a variety of directions. 

The Anthropology Department offers beginning and advanced coursework 
in the four pnncipal subdivisions of the discipline: physical anthropology, 
linguistics, archaeology and cultural anthropology Within each area, the 
Department offers some degree of specialization and provides a vanety of 
opportunities within the curriculum Laljoratory courses are offered in physical 
anthropology and archaeology: field schools are offered in archaeology ar>d 
ethnography Instruction is available in Ixith Old World and New Work) 
archaeology and ethnology, and lab courses include human evolution, human 
population biology, forensic anthropology, osteology, and archaeological 
analysis The interrelationships of all branches of anthropology is emphasized 
Courses in these subdivisions may be used to fulfill the minor or 'supportir>g 
courses" requirement in some programs leading to the B A degree 

The Anthropology Department has a total of five laboratories k>cated in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into teaching labs and research labs At present 
there are three physical anthropology labs; one osteoiogical research lab. one 
"vief lab for teaching and research in serology and histotogy. and one anatomy 
teaching lab These laboratories contain radiographic, histolic. arx) 
electrophonetic equipment, and the osteoiogical lab is centered around an 
extensive research collection There is one Ethnology Linguistics lab which also 
doubles as a seminar room. The Department's Archaeology lab, containing 
materials collected from field schools of the past several years, serves as both 
a teaching and research lab. 

Antttropology Major. A student who declares a major in Anthropology will be 
awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree upon fulfilment of the requirements of the 
degree program The student must complete at least 30 hours of courses 
labeled ANTH with a grade of C or better in each course The courses are 
distributed as follows: 

a. Eighteen (18) hours of required courses which must include ANTH 101. 
102, 397, 401, 441 or 451 and 371 or 461 or 361 

b. Twelve (12) hours of elective courses in Anthropology of which nine (9) 
hours must t>e at the 300 level or above; 

c Eighteen (18) hours of supporting courses (courses outside of Anthropology 
offerings in fields which are complementary to the majors specific 
anthropological interest) Supporting courses are to be ctxjsen by ttie 
student and approved by a faculty advisor 

In addition to the alxive requirements Anthropology majors must meet 
those of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences specifying general 
courses, grade point average, course load and the forty (40) credit hours of 
University Studies Program approved courses required of every degree-seeking 
student of the University 

The Advising System. The Anthropology Department allows the student to 
select his or her Faculty Advisor to fit their own particular interests and needs. 
All Anthropology faculty members are advisors (and should be contacted 
individually) who help plan each student's program All maiors are expected to 
seek out a faculty advisor and consult with himher on a regular basis 

The Honors Program. The Anthropokjgy Department also offers an Honors 
Program which provides the student an opportunity to pursue in-depth study of 
her or his interests Acceptance is contingent upon a 3.5 GPA in Antliropology 
courses and a 3 overall average Members of this Program are encouraged 
to take as many Departmental Honors courses as possible The citaUon is 
awarded upon completion and review of a ttiesis to be done within the fieW of 
Anthropology. Details and applications are available in the Anthropokjgy office, 
or contact your advisor for further infomiation 

ANTH 101 (or equivalent), or permission of instructor is prerequisite for all

The undergraduate economics program is designed to give students an 
understanding of the American economic system and our country's economic 
relations with the rest of the world, and the ability to analyze the economic 
forces which determine the production of goods and services, the level of 
prices, the distribution of income, and other economic factors which influence 
the quality of life. Such study includes an analysis of current economic 
problems and the merits of alternative public policies which influence social 
outcomes. The program lor majors prepares students for employment after 
college as well as for work toward advanced degrees. 

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

(1) Economic Courses (30 hours) 

Economics majors must earn 30 credit hours in economics with an average 
grade in all Economics courses of not less than C, Courses required of all 
majors are: ECON 201. ECON 203, ECON 310, ECON 401, ECON 403, and 
ECON 421 

In lieu of ECON 401, the student may take ECON 405; in lieu of ECON 
403, the student may take ECON 406 In lieu of ECON 421, the student may 
take one of the following statistics courses: BlvlGT 230, BMGT 231, or STAT 
400 A student who takes ECON 205 (Fundamentals of Economics) before 
deciding to major in Economics may continue with ECON 203, without being 
required to take ECON 201 , 

The remainder of the 30 hours may be chosen from among any other 
upper division economics courses Students who take ECON 421 may not also 
receive credit fo BMGT 230 or BMGT 231, The Department urges students to 
take more than the minimum of 30 hours, especially if the student is going to 
graduate school 

(2) Mathematics Supporting Courses (6 hours) 

Six credit nours of Mathematics are required including one semester of 
calculus. No specific courses are required, but the combination of MATH 110 
(Introduction to Mathematics) and MATH 220 (Elementary Calculus) is the 
minimum Students planning to do graduate study in Economics are strongly 
urged to take more than the minimum six-hour mathematics requirement. 

(3) Additional Supporting Courses (18 hours) 

Economics majors must earn credit for eighteen hours of upper division 
work in addition to the 30 hours of Economics courses listed above and in 
addition to the nine hours of upper division courses required as part of the 
General University Requirements For purposes of this requ'rement, any of the 
following may count as an "upper division" course: any course numbered 300 
or above, any second year course in mathematics beyond the six hours 
required of all Economics majors; and any course in a department for which 
the prerequisites are the equivalent of one year of college-level work in that 
department. In particular, second year college courses in foreign languages 
and sciences may be counted as "upper division" Students may include as part 
of their 18 hours of supporting courses, any upper division Economics courses 
which are not counted among their 30 hours of Economics courses. 

Students who declared their major prior to Spring, 1979, may graduate 
under the former rules. The former rules require 36 Economics hours, 12 hours 
of supporting courses, and two semesters of math but with no calculus 

Study Sequences and Plans of Study. While the regulations allow students 
very considerable latitude in their choice of courses, the Department urges that 
the student take ECON 201, 203 and begin in the required mathematics 
courses as soon as possible. Upon completion of ECON 203, the student 
should promptly take ECON 401, 403, or both, in the following semester, since 
these are intermediate theory courses of genefal applicability in the later 
course work. Majors should take ECON 421 (or equivalent) after calculus is 
completed ECON 310 may be taken any time after completing ECON 203 

Courses in applied areas at the 300 and 400 level may be tjegun at any 
point after ECON 203, though there is some benefit to completing the 
intermediate theory courses first. While the Department does not require any 
particular set of electives, students can benefit from giving some attention to 
defining sub-specialties within Economics of interest or of importance for 
subsequent career plans, and completing the several relevant courses to that 
sub-specialty. 

Those students planning to pursue graduate study in Economics must 
t>egin to prepare themselves analytically for graduate work by focusing on 
theory, statistics, and mathematics in their undergraduate curriculum. This 
should include ECON 422 (Quantitative Methods) and ECON 425 
(Mathematical Economics) in their program. Additional mathematics, including 
more calculus and linear algebra, is recommended. 

Economics Honors Program. The Honors Program provides Economics 
majors with the opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with faculty 
supervision of seminar papers and an honors thesis The Honors Program is a 
three-semester (9 credit hour) sequence which a student enters at the 
beginning of the last three semesters A student must have a 3 5 GPA m 
Economics to graduate with honors in Economics To bie eligible, a student 
must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3,0 in Economics and 
have completed ECON 401 and 403. The student normally takes ECON 395 m 
Spring of junior year The second course in the 9 hours sequence is ECON 
396, Honors Workshop Students take ECON 397, Thesis, in their last 
semester.

Geography is an interdisciplinary field that offers a wide range of career 
options The central question in geographical study is "where?" Geographers 
research locational questions of the natural environment, of social and 
economic systems, and of past human activity on the land Students of 
geography must master a variety of methods and techniques that are useful In 
locational analysis, including: map making or cartography, air-photo 
interpretation and remote sensing, field observation, statistical analysis, 
computer applications and mapping, and mathematical modelling. In addition to 
methodological knowledge, students of geography also must master 
substantive knowledge — either in the physical natural sciences or the 
behavioral/social sciences The ability to write cleariy and to synthesize 
information and concepts are highly valued in geographical education and 
practice. International interests are best pursued with complementary study 
emphases in foreign languages and area studies 

Increasingly, geographers today use their combined methodological and 
substantive knowledge towards the solution of society's problems More 
graduate geographers are taking positions in planning, natural resources 
management, and policy analysis 

Geographers in the federal government work in the Department of State, 
Interior, Defense, Agriculture, Housing and Urban Affairs, Health and Human 
Services, and the Central Intelligence Agency They are on the staffs of the 
legislative research branch, the Library of Congress and the National Archives, 
At the state and local government level there is an increasing demand for 
geographers in planning positions. And in recent years more and more 
geographers also are employed in private industry working on problems of 
industrial and commercial location and market analysis Teaching at all levels 
from elementary school through graduate work continues to employ many 
geographers each year Some find geography to be an excellent background 
for careers in the military, journalism, travel and tourism, the nonprofit sector, 
and general business; others find the broad perspective of geography an 
excellent base for a general education Most professional positions in 
geography require graduate training 

Requirements for an Undergraduate Major. Within any of the general major 

programs it is possible for the student to adjust his her program to fit his.'her 
particular individual interests. The major totals 36 semester hours. In addition 
to the 36 semester hours, the geography major is required to take an additional 
15 semester hours of supporting coursework outside of the Department The 
hours can be either in one department or in an area of concentration An area 
of concentration requires that a written program of courses be reviewed and 
placed on file by the Department advisor Supporting courses generally are 
related to area of specialty in geography Pass-fail option is not applicable to 
major or supporting courses 

The required courses of the geography majors are as follows:

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

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.

specific area. Information is available in Ifie Undergraduate Office detailing the 
individual requirements for eacti area of concentration 

A specialization in Social Science Researcfi and Metfiodology gives 
students experience necessary to seek employment in the burgeoning research 
area. Combined with emphasis in any number of substantive areas the 
statistics and methodological skills acquired in this area are appropriate to 
Survey Research, Evaluation Research, Marketing and other quantitatively 
oriented endeavors. A Social Psychology specialization exposes the student to 
theories of social interaction, personality, collective behavior and small group 
behavior. This emphasis is particularly valuable for students interested in 
Human Service, Counseling, Personnel Work and other people related 
occupations in business and industry. 

An Organizations and Occupations concentration is particularly useful to 
pursuit of careers in the business world and bureaucratic research An 
Organization specialty involves theoretical instnjction in formal organization, 
bureaucracy, social stratification and application to any institution that is 
organized in a bureaucratic form such as education, the military and politics 
Another facet of this concentration is the whole area of work roles and 
occupations, their meaning, development, professionalization and place in the 
social structure Very closely associated with the Organizations and 
Occupations specialty is the concentration on the Military Military Sociology 
uses concepts associated with bureaucratic organization, social control, and 
even sex roles, to examine our military institution. Considering the importance 
of the military in the world today, this is a rapidly growing specialty area. 

Family Sociology is a specialty that examines the development of sex roles, 
the organization and changes in our family institution as well as the relationship 
of the family to the social structure Specific coursework in areas of childhood 
socialization and aging and disability focus on family problem areas. Along with 
the Social Psychology concentration. Family Sociology is a good preparation 
for Human Service, Counseling, and research occupations. It is equally 
valuable for those who plan for their own marriage and family. 

The last two areas of concentration. Social Demography and Social 
Stratification are particularly appropriate for students interested in a macro view 
of society Social Demography focuses on the impact of population and its 
distribution (age, sex. race, rural-urban) on the social structure. Social 
Stratification emphasizes the social definitions of age, sex, race as well as 
occupation, wealth, power and prestige on the classification systems societies 
develop. Both are useful in comparative research as well as policy 
development and evaluation. 

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, psychology, 
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. 

Three hours of Mathematics (Stat 100: Math 110, 111, 115, 140, 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 lor 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 386367 whicfy 
allows an upper level major to gain up to 6 hours of credit by the combination 
of working in an inlemship'volunteer position and doing some academic project 
in conjunction with the wori< 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 fwur 
courses, exceptions to this 47 hour requirement may be made by the 
Coordinator of the Sociology Undergraduate Program

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) 
evaluation and research. 

Because of the location of the University in a suburb of the nation's capital, 
unusual facilities lor 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 lor Accreditation of Teacher Education and by the National 
Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification. 
Accreditation 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 administrators, supervisors, curriculum coordinators, guidance 
counselors, > student personnel administrators, and vocational rehabilitation 
counselors) at the master's, advanced graduate specialist and doctoral degree 
levels are all fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of 
Teacher Education. 

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

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

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.

teach and wish to register in professional education courses required for 
certification must meet all curricular and scholastic requirements of the College 
of Education.

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 Ixjth 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 
t)asic disciplines of the natural and behavioral sciences along with the arts arxl 
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 contritmting 
member of society This balance includes grounding in basic and applied skills, 
as well as providing an atmosphere where creativity may flourish to enhance 
our potential for developing innovative solutions to societal problems 

The faculty utilizes existing knowledge and generates new knowledge, 
techniques and methods based on research, while providing opportunities 
through laboratory, practical and field experiences for making knowledge and 
innovative discovery more meaningful to the individual Through these 
experiences the faculty experiments with varying relevant techniques and 
methods by which the individual can transfer to the society-at-large new kleas 
and methods lor 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 
professional 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 ennchmenl of family life. 

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

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

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

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

The Department of Family and Community Development is devoted to 
describing, explaining, and improving the quality of life in urban, suburban, and 
oiral 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 jobs for which the curriculum is 
designed include counseling, planning, research, advocacy, and service 
delivery. 

Graduates of the Department obtain positions in research centers, 
consulting 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 majors 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. II is 
grounded upon a knowledge of the structures, dynamics, and developmental 
pattems of neightxjrhoods 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 
implemented by specialists and citizens working together. 

//. 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 
development 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.

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 
o( 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, lor 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 1980'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 This is the beginning level of educational media 
responsibilities. The Associate is a professional person with introductory 
knowledge, understanding of and competency in media services, with the 
particular emphasis on the operation of a unified media program 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 masters degree program in the College of Library and Information 
Services is the recognized avenue for preparing fully qualified professionals in 
the library field. 

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

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 t>e 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 tfie 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 Department, are required 
for the activity classes and for student teaching These uniforms should be 
worn only during professional activities

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 publk: sctxxjis. The body 
of knowledge explored by this curriculum may be described briefly as follows: 

The history of sport, both ancient and contemporary, its phitosophical 

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 leaming and the psyctx>logical factors inherent 

in physical pertormance 

The quantification and descnption of pertoiniance and the relation of ttiese 

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 fiekls, 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 
educatkin and allied fields

Division of IVIathematical 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 t>e 
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 
fundamental 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 tjecome 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.

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 t>e addressed 
to this office. Specific departmental information is best obtained directly from 
the departments. 

The records of students in the College of Engineering are processed and 
kept In the Engineering Student Affairs Office, J-1107 (454-2421). Inquiries 
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 
urKler-representation of women and minorities in these fields There are in fact 
many career opportunities for women and members of minorities in the fields 
represented by the Division. 
Degree Requirements. 

A. A minimum of 120 semester hours with at least a C average are required 
for all Bachelor of Science degrees from the Division All B.S. degrees 
conferred by the College of Engineering require more than 120 credits; the 
exact number varies with the department. 

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 1980 may satisfy 
this general studies requirement through the General University 
Requirement 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 Part< 
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 whrch they plan to graduate by 
ttie 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 designatton in Aerospace 
Engineering, Agricultural Engineenng, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering. Mechanical Engineering, or 
to ttie degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with an Engineering option 
or an Applied Science option One example of the Bachetor of Science in 
Engineering is Nuclear Engineenng In addition, each of the foregoing degree 
programs may be pursued through ttie 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 solkls and fluids, engineering materials. 



thermodynamics, electrk:lty, and magnetism; (3) professional studies In major 
fields of engineenng specializatk>n; and (4) general studies including lit>eral arts 
and social studies as part of the General University Requirements Each 
program lays a broad base lor continued learning after college in professional 
practice, in business and industry, in public service, or in graduate study and 
research. 

Gerwral Information. Increasingly, the boundary tietween engineers and 
applied scientists or applied mathematicians becomes less distinct The various 
branches of engineenng similarty 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 thie 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 Ttie lime 
required to complete the vanous 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-engineenng students normally 
enroll in an academic program in high school The course of study shook) 
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 ctiemistry 

Curricula for the various engineering departments are given in this catatog 
to illustrate how the programs can be completed in four years These curncula 
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 lour 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 dosiraljle 
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 Curricuia. Courses in the normal curriculum or 
program and prescribed credit hours leading to the degree of Bachetor of 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections pertaining to 
each department in the College of Engineering No student may modify ttie 
prescribed number of hours without special permission from the Dean of ttie 
College. The courses in each curriculum may be classified in the following 
categories: 
1 . Courses in the University Studies Program Requirements. 
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 ttie 

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 Academk: 
Regulations) may need clarirication for purposes of orderiy administratton 
among engineering students. Moreover, the College of Engineering establisties 
policies which supplement the University regulations 

Basic Format of the Freshman-Sophomore Years In Englneerlr^g. Ttte 
freshman and sophomore years in engineenng 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 dunng ttie 
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 flexitnlity in 
choosing a specific area of engineenng specialization Alttiough ttie 
engineenng student selects a major fiekj at the start of the sophomore year. 
this intramural program commonality affords the student the maximum flexibility 
of choice of interdepartmental transfer up to the end of the sophomore year.

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 
Engineering), and this department assumes the responsibility for the student's 
academic guidance, counseling and program planning from that point until the 
completion of the degree requirements of that department as well as the 
College. For the specific requirements, see the cun-iculum listing in each 
engineering department. 

College Regulations 

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

2. Required courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry have highest 
priority; and it is strongly recommended that every tngineering 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 prefix. Responsibility for knowing and 
meeting all degree requirements for graduatkjn in any curriculum rests with 
the student. 

4. A University Studies Program is required of students who entered UMCP 
beginning in May 1980. The University Studies Program replaces the 
General University Requirements for students who entered in May 1980 
and thereafter. Students who 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-halt of the degree credits (approximatoty 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 transler program Students should investigate the feasibility of 
completing these courses in Summer Sctxx)l at the University of Maryland 
belore starting their junior course work in the fall semester 

Dual Degree Program. The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative 
arrangement between the College ol Engineering and selected lit>eral 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 lor approximately three (3) .academic years 
(minimum 90 hours) and the University ol Maryland. College ol Engineering for 
approximately two (2) academic years (minimum hours required — determined 
individually, approximately 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 Stale College, Columbia Union College. Coppin, Frostburg, King College 
(Bristol, Tenn). Morgan State University, Notre Dame of Maryland. St. Mary's 
(St Mary's City). Salisbury State, Shippensburg Stale University (PA), Towson 
State University, Western Maryland College and Trinity (Washington, DC). 

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

Program Director: Blair 

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

The Co-op Program tiegins 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.

Agricultural engineering utilizes both the physical and biological sciences to 
help meet the needs ol our increasing world population tor 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 latxjr 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 ol living for the njral 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. The agricultural engineer places emphasis on 
maintaining a high quality environment as he worlcs toward developing efficient 
and economical engineering solutions.

The Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Department offers programs in 
chemical, materials 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 lor graduate study 
or immediate industrial trial employment lollowing the baccalaureate degree. 

The chemical engineering program emphasizes the application of basic 
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, 
metallurgical, nuclear and energy conversion, petroleum (refining, production, 
or petrochemical), and pharmaceutical industries. Additional opportunities are 
presented by the research and development activities of many public and 
private research institutes and allied agencies.

Civil Engineering Curriculum 

Civil engineering is concerned with the planning, design, constnjction 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, 
urtsan and regional planning, construction management, and air pollution 
control Many civil engineers enter private practice as consulting engineers or 
start their own businesses in the construction industry Others pursue careers 
with local, state, and federal agencies or with large corporations 

The undergraduate program Is founded on the basic sciences and 
emphasizes the development of a high degree of technical competence The 
program onents 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 Ijetween 
technical efficiency and the needs of society The graduate is prepared to enter 
one of the areas mentioned atxive, 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 lime has man tiaen 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 lor 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 ttie 
physical problems lacing the urban-regional complex

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

Areas stressed Include such (lelds as electronics, integrated circuits, solid 
state devices, lasers, communication engineering, information theory and 
coding engineering, system theory, computer software and hardware, particle 
accelerators, electro-mechanical transducers, energy conversion, electrical 
engineenng. and many others. 

Apprenticeship programs allow qualified undergraduate students to work 
with researcfi laboratory directors in the Department, thus giving tfie student a 
chance for a unique experience in research and engineenng 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 t)ecoming steadily 
more complex. The engineer is tfie intermediary between science and society 
To solve the problems of modern society he must fully understand the most 
modem 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 t>e concerned with the economic, ecologic and human factors involved in 
the problem Finally, current problems frequently require a thorough l<nowledge 
of advanced mathematics and physics 

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

To go along with this freedom, the Department has a system of 
undergraduate advising. The student is encouraged to discuss his 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 
Lecturer (p t): Walton 

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

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineenng are relatively 
well-defined and the application of these principles to a modern industrialized 
society has become a specialized activity. Control of the hazards in 
manufacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of measures for 
the protection but of the processes themselves Often the most effective 
solution to the problem of safeguarding a hazardous operation lies in the 
modification of special extinguishing equipment The 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 stie 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.

The primary function of the mechanical engineer is to create devices, 
machines, slnjctures or processes which are used to advance the welfare of 
mankind. Design, analysis and testing are the essential steps in these 
developments. Of particular importance are the aspects of engineering science 
and art relating to the generation and transmission of mechanical power, the 
establishment of both experimental and theoretical models of mechanical 
systems, the static and dynamic behavior of fluids and the optimization of 
materials in design. Emphasis is also given to the proper 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, 
management materials handling, metals engineering, nuclear engineering, 
petroleum, power, pressure vessels and piping, process industries, railroad, 
rubber and plastics, safety, solar energy, textiles and underwater technology 

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

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

Nuclear engineering deals with the practical use ol nuclear energy Irom 
nuclear fission, lusion and radioisotope sources The ma|or 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 pnmarily concerned with (he 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 ol uses for 
nuclear systems, the nuclear engineers find interesting and diverse career 
opportunities in a variety of companies and latx)ratones 

Programs of study in nuclear engineering at the undergraduate and 
graduate level are offered through the Chemical and Nuclear Engineerir>g 
Department Students may use nuclear engineering as a field of concentration 
in the Bachelor ot 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

Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering 

The "B.S.-Engineering" program is designed to serve three primary 
functions: (1) to prepare those students who wish to use the breadth and depth 
of their engineering education as a preparatory vehicle for entry into 
post-baccalaureate study in such fields as medicine, law, or business 
administration; (2) to provide the basic professional training for those students 
who wish to continue their engineering studies on the graduate level in one of 
the new interdisciplinary fields of engineering such as environmental 
engineering, bio-medical engineering, systems engineering, and many others; 
and finally (3) to educate those students who do not plan a normal professional 
career in a designated engineering field but wish to use a broad engineering 
education so as to be better able to serve in one or more of the many auxiliary 
or management positions of engineering related industries. The program is 
designed to give the maximum flexibility for tailoring a program to the specific 
future career plans of the student. To accomplish these objectives, the program 
has two optional paths: an engineering option and an applied science option. 



The "Engineering" option should be particularly attractive to those students 
contemplating graduate study or professional employment in the 
interdisciplinary engineering fields, such as environmental engineering, 
bio-engineenng. bio-medical, and systems and control engineering, or for 
preparatory entry into a variety of newer or interdisciplinary areas of graduate 
study For example, a student contemplating graduate work in environmental 
engineenng might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or her 
program, a student interested in systems and control engineering graduate 
work might combine electrical engineering with aerospace, chemical, or 
mechanical engineering 

The 'Applied Science" option should be particularly attractive to those 
students who do not plan on professional engineering careers but wish to use 
the rational and developmental abilities fostered by an engineering education 
as a means of furthering career objectives Graduates of the- Applied Science 
Option may aspire to graduate worit and an ultimate career in a field of 
science, law, medicine, business, or a variety of other attractive opportunities 
which build on a combination of engineering and a field of science Entrance 
requirements for law and medical schools can be met readily under the format 
of this program In the applied science program, any field in the University in 
which the student may earn a 8 S. degree is an acceptable secondary science 
field, thus affording the student a maximum flexibility of choice for personal 
career planning 

Listed below are the minimum requirements for the B S.-Engineering 
degree with either an Engineering option or an Applied Science option The 66 
semester credit hours required for the completion of the junior and senior years 
is supenmposed upon the freshman and sophomore curriculum of the cliosen 
primary field of engineering The student, thus, does not make a decision 
whether to take the designated or the undesignated degree in an engineering 
field until the beginning of the junior year In fact, the student can probably 
delay the decision until the spring term of the junior year with little or no 
sacrifice, thus affording the student ample time for decision. Either program 
may be taken on the regular four-year format or under the Maryland Plan for 
Cooperative Engineering Education

Engineering Fields of Concentration available under the B.S.-Engineering 
program as primary field within either the Engineering option or the Applied 
Science option are as follows: 

Aerospace Engineering Electrical Engineering 

Agricultural Engineering Engineering Materials 

Chemical Engineering Mechanical Engineering 

Civil Engineering Nuclear Engineering 
Fire Protection Engineering 

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

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

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

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

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

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

(6) In the Engineering option, the 6 sh of electives must be technical (math, 
physical sciences, or engineering sciences, but may not be in the primary 
or secondary fields of concentration) In the Applied Science option, the 
approved electives should be selected to strengthen the students program 
consistent with career objectives. Courses in the primary or secondary 
fields of concentration may be used to satisfy the approved electives 
requirement.

General Regulations for the B.S.— Engineering Degree. All undergraduate 
students in engineering will select their major (ield sponsoring department at 
the beginning o( their second year regardless ol whether they plan to proceed 
to a designated or an undersignated degree A student wishing to elect the 
undersignated degree program may do so at any time lollowing the completion 
ol the sophomore year, or a minimum of 50 earned credits towards any 
engineering degree, and at least one semester prior to the time the student 
expects to receive the baccalaureate degree As soon as the student elects to 
seek an undersignated baccalaureate degree in engineering, the student's 
curriculum planning, guidance and counseling will be the responsibility ol the 
"Undesignated Degree Program Advisor" in the primary Held department. At 
least one semester before the expected degree Is to be granted, the student 
must file an 'Application lor Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor 
of Science In Engineering' with the Dean's Office of the College ol Engineering 
The candidacy form must be approved by the chairman of the primary field 
department, the primary engineering and the secondary field advisors and the 
college faculty committee on "Undesignated Degree Programs. ' This committee 
has the responsibility lor implementing all approved policies pertaining to this 
program and reviewing and acting on the candidacy forms filed by the student. 

Specific University and College academic regulations apply to this 
undesignated degree program in the same manner as they apply to the 
conventional designated degree programs For example, the academic 
regulations ol the University apply as stated in the College Park Catalog of the 
University of Maryland, and the College requirement ol 2 00 factor in the major 
field during the junior and senior years apply For the purpose of 
implementation of such academic rules, the credits in the primary engineering 
field and the credits in the secondary field are considered to count as "the 
Major" for such academic purposes. 

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

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

Engineering-Medicine. Advanced technology is finding increasingly 
sophisticated applications in medical care delivery and research. Pacemakers, 
heart-assist pumps, kidney dialysis machines, and artificial limbs are only a few 
examples of the role of engineering and technology in medicine In addition, 
diagnostic procedures and record-keeping have been greatly enhanced by the 
use ol 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/tier 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.

Students preparing lor 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 posittons in 
governmental and industrial laboratories and observatories, for graduate worV 
in astronomy or related fields, and for non-astronomical careers such as in law 
or business. 

Astronomy majors are required to lake an introductory course in astronomy 
This will usually be ASTR 181, 182 However students with ttie 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 lor 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 attendant 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 phystes 
and mathematics courses must also t)e C or better Any student who wishes to 
be recommended for graduate work in astronomy must maintain a 8 average 
He or she should also consider includiny 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 maiors 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 ol 
special opportunities for learning There are many opportunities lor part-time 
research participation which may develop into full-time sumrrwr projects. An 
honors seminar is offered for advanced students, credit may be given tor 
independent wori< or study: and certain graduate courses are open for credit 
toward the bachelor's degree 

Students for the Honors Program are accepted by the Departments 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 graduatkxi "with Honors 
(or High Honors) in Astronomy " 

Courses (or Non-Science Majors. There are a vanety of Astronomy courses 
offered for those who are interested in learning atXHit 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 ttie non-science major

Introductory Computer Science Course*. The Department offers a choice of 
courses. CMSC 103. 1 10. 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. 

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

Majors should take the CMSC 110. 120 sequence in their first year Those 
students who have programming background in a language such as FORTRAN 
should consult an advisor to determine if they need to take CMSC 110 or if 
ttiey could obtain credit for it by examination Credit by examination is possible 
for CMSC 110 or 120. or (or any other undergraduate level computer science 
course (or which transfer credit has no! been given. 

Undergraduate Computer Science Courses. Beginning with cxiurses 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 trK>se 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 MS and PhD degree programs.) 

The student may choose from a large variety of computer science courses 
to satisfy the requirement of a minimum of 30 credit hours of CMSC courses. 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

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

A student intending to major in mathematics should complete the 
introductory sequence MATH 140, 141. 240. 241 or the corresponding honors 
sequence MATH 150. 151, 250, 251 and should have an average grade of at 
least B and no grade less than C in these courses 

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

1 ) CMSC 1 1 or a CMSC course having CMSC 1 10 as a prerequisite. 

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

3) Eight MATH/MAPUSTAT upper level courses (i.e. at the 400 level or 
atxjve). 

The 8 courses will include: 

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

from Math 410-41 1 and receive credit for two upper level courses.) 

b) One course from among Math 401 , Math 405, 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 

mathematics 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 MathStat 
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 bnefly 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: STAT: 410, 411, 420 Students preparing for 
graduate school in mathematics should include MATH 403, 405, 410 and 
41 1 in their programs MATH 463 (or 660) and MATH 432 (or 730) are also 
desirable Other courses from the above list and graduate courses are also 
appropriate 

2. Secondary teaching: the followir>g courses are required to teach 
mathematics at the secondary level: MATH 402 or403, 430 or 431, and 
EOSE 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 wori( requiring some statistical 
background, the minimal program is STAT 400—401 To work pnmarily as a 
statistician, one should combine STAT 400-401 with at least two more 
statistics courses, most suitably STAT 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 wori(. STAT 410 and 
420 give the best background, with STAT 411. 421. 440. 450. and 460 
added at some later stage 

4. Computational mathematics: there are a number of math courses whicti 
emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics including the use of 
the computer They are MAPL 460. 470. 471. 477: MATH 472, 475. 
Students interested in this area should take CMSC 110 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, 414, 415. 
436. 462. 463, 464 A student interested in applied mathematics sfxjuld 
obtain, in addition to a solid training in mathematics, a good knowledge of 
at least one area in which mathematics is currently being applied. ' 
Concentration in this area is good preparation for employment in 
government and industry or for graduate study in applied mathematics 

Language. Since most of the non-English mathematical literature is wntten 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 coursewort< 

The Mathematics Department also offers a special Mathematics 
Departmental honors calculus sequence (MATH 150, 151, 250, 251) tor 
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 also enroll in special 
honors sections of the regular calculus sequence (MATH 140H. 141H. 240H. 
241 H). They may also enroll in the honors calculus sequence if invited by the 
Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee However, the Mathematics 
Departmental Honors calculus sequence and the 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 
mathematics fraternity, meets frequently to discuss mathematical or educatk>nal 
topics of interest to undergraduates The programs are open to the public 

Placement In Mathematics Courses. The department has a large otfenng 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 tje permitted to t>egin in ttie 
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 appropnate CEEB Advanced Placement 
Examination, passing standardized CLEP examinations, and through the 
deparlmenl'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 Matliematlct. Courses m statistics 
and probability and applied mathematics are offered t>y thie Department of 
Mathematics These courses are open to non-majors as well as maiofs. and 
carry credit in Mathematics Students wishing to concentrate m ttw above may 
do so by clioosing an appropriate program under the Department of 
Mathematics

The Meteorology Department otters a number of courses of interest to 
undergraduate students These courses provide an excellent undergraduate 
background lor those students who wish lo do graduate work in the tields o( 
atmospheric and oceanic science, meteorology, air pollution, and other 
environmental sciences The interdisciplinary nature o( 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 pursuihg 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 
meteorokxjy It is important that students who anticipate this specialization 
shoukJ consult the Physical Sciences Program advisor representing the 
Department of Meteorology as early as possible in their studies. 

Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the study of the atmosphere requires 
a firm tiackground in the tjasic 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. See the section on 
course descriptions for electives in meteorology. 

Students who may be preparing for graduate education in meteorology are 
strongly advised to pursue further coursework from among the areas of 
physics, applied mathematics, chemistry, computer science and statistics to 
supplement coursework in meteorology. With proper counseling from the 
Meteorok>gy Department advisor, tfie student wishing to graduate with an M.S. 
degree in meteorology may achieve that goal in five years from the inception of 
University Studies.

PurpOM. 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, 
advertising or sales require a broad technical background. This program can 
also be useful for those planning science-oriented or technical work in the 
uri^an fiekj; 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 nomially be advised by 
the chairman of the committee.
