Universities in General 

The contemporary university is a comprehensive educational institution

Universities as we know them in the United States have existed lor 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 ellorts at 
higher education The ancient German university tradition was loined with this 
in the 1870's to form basic outlines ol our present institutions Practical studies 
were grafted onto these more classically and theoretically oriented traditions by 
the agricultural emphasis of the land grant movement 

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

Summer Sessions 

The College Park Campus oHers two summer sessions of six weeks each 
year The dales of the Summer Sessions can be found in the printed Schedule 
ol Classes for the Summer Session and in the Academic Calendar in Pan I ol 
Ihis catalog New freshmen applicants who have met the regular University 
admission requirements for fall enrollment may begin their studies during the 
summer rather than wail lor the next fall term By taking advantage of this 
opportunity and continuing to attend summer sessions, the time required lor 
completion of a baccalaureate degree can be shortened by a year or more, 
depending upon the requirements of the chosen curriculum and the rate of 
progress 

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

The Summer Cultural and Recreational Program is an important part ol 
"Summer at Maryland " A Fine Arts Festival offers a series of programs in art,

Annotations: 

1 The University is not designed or equipped to rehabilitate or incapacitate 
persons who pose a substantial threat to themselves or to others It may be 
necessary, therefore, to renrove those individuals from the campus and to 
sever the institutional relationship with them, 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 the University in order to bring about a lasting and reasoned change in 
behavior The underlying rationale for punishment need not rest on 



deterrence or "reform'' alone, however A just punishment may also be 
imposed because it is "desen/ed" and because punishment for 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 fytodern Law Review 205 

The vice of regarding punishment entirely from the points of view of 
reformation and deterrence lies precisely in forgetting that a |U8t 
punishment is deserved The punishment of men then ceases to be 
essentially different from the training of animals, and the way is open 
for the totalitarian state to undenal<e the forcible improvement of its 
citizens without regard to whether their conduct has made them morally 
liable to social coercion or not But merit 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 responsibility for at 
least some of his actions Hence merit and demerit, reward and 
punishment, have an irreducible individual 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 in any meaningful sense includes the inculcation of an 
understanding m each pupil of the necessity of rules and obedience 
thereto This understanding is no less important than learning to read 
and write One who does not comprehend the meaning and necessity 
of discipline is handicapped not merely in his education but throughout 
his subsequent life In an age when the home and church play a 
diminishing role in shaping the character and value judgments of the 
young, a heavier responsibility falls upon the schools When an 
immature student merits censure for his conduct, he is rendered a 
disservice if appropriate 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 (e g . part 10 (a) explains the meaning of expulsion) 

3 Culpable conduct should include conscious acts posing a substantial risk 
of harm to others (e g throwing a heavy object out a tenth floor window 
above 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 heavy 
obiect) the individual may have failed to use reasonable care, but is not 
normally deserving of the moral stigma associated with a "conviction" for a 
disciplinary offense 

4 Former students may be charged for violations which allegedly occurred 
dunng their enrollment at the University. 

5 Colleges and Universities are not expected to develop disciplinary 
regulations which are written with the scope or precision of a criminal 
code Rare occasions may arise when conduct is so inherently and 
patently dangerous to the individual or to others that extraordinary action 
not specifically authorized in the rules must be taken 

6 The terms "suspension" and "interim suspension" are to be distinguished 
throughout the code and are not interchangeable 

7 Disciplinary removal from University housing should be distinguished from 
administrative removal for violations of the residence contract The latter 
does not leave students with a disciplinary record and does not come 
under the pun/iew of this code 

8 The standard set forth here represents the minimal procedural protection to 
be accorded to students charged with most disciplinary violalions 
Students who are subject to lengthy suspensions or to expulsion may be 
entitled to more formal procedures, including a hearing with a right to 
cross-examine the witnesses against them Goss v Lopez 419 US S65 
(1975) 

9 The Supreme Court has recently rejected the theory that slate schools are 
bound by principles of federal administrative law requiring agencies to 
follow their own regulations Board ol Curators, University ol Missouri v. 
Horowitz bb I 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 be informed that tfie 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

Code of Student Conduct 13 



sel lorth in Schedules I through V in Article 27, part 279 o( the Annotated 
Code of Maryland. 

12 Colleges and Universities should be a forum lor the tree expression ol 
ideas In the recent past, however, unpopular speakers have been 
prevented Ironn addressing campus audiences by students who ellectively 
"shouted them down " Both Yale and Stanford Universities have treated 
such actions (which are to be distinguished from minor and occasional 
heckling) as serious disciplinary violations See the "Report from the 
Committee on Freedom ot Expression at Yale University" which is available 
in the Judicial Programs Office 

The following language from the Yale report may be used to elaborate 
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 disrupted 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 disruptive 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 of 
lawful speech can never be justified on such grounds as that the 
speech or the speaker is deemed irresponsible, offensive, unscholaFly, 
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 m 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 parts twelve and thirteen represent an attempt to give 
needed guidance to those who are assessing penalties (vioreover, 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 
Model 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 m 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 formal 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 would 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 example, 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 previous policy concerning 
the powers of judicial 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 the 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 (udicial 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 ol Judicial Programs 

23 The power ot confirmation represents a significant grant of authority to the 
Senate Committee The committee is presently underutilized 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 embarrassment 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 for anyone "to dance continuously in a 
dance contest for twelve or more hours without respite') 

26 Case referrals should not be limited to members ol 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 |ust 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 11 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-adversanal 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 them at the conference Respondents would also be allowed to bring 
appropriate witnesses with them and might be 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 grovirth of 
unnecessary 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 of 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 current 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 



14 Code of Student Conduct 



pertineni to the dispute at hand 

Conversation knows no such limits It too serves as a vehicle lor 
resolving what are likely to be factually uncomplicated disputes, but it 
does more than that It enables students to (eel that they are being 
listened to and may encourage them to raise underlying grievances It 
provides administrators with a relatively inexpensive vehicle lor 
monitoring, and hence a basis lor reshaping institutional relationships 
The outcome ol these orderly thoughtlul conversations' may well be 
decisions different in their particulars from what might otherwise have 
been anticipated, repeated conversations which touch upon similar 
student grievances may ultimately lead disciplinanans to reassess 
whether control is so vital, and collaboration 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 ol separation Irom the University Accordingly, the 
procedure appears to meet or exceed the due process requirements set 
forth by the United States Supreme Court lor cases involving suspensions 
ol 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 
altord the student the opportunity to secure counsel, to conlront and 
cross-examine witnesses supporting the charge, or to call his own 
witnesses to verify his version of the incident Briel 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 
would save in educational effectiveness Moreover, further formalizing 
the 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 part 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 ol disputes about tacts and arguments 
about cause and etiecl 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 materials which would be considered "education 
records", pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
Personal notes ol 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 desirable, since cases have arisen in which 
complainants or respondents were unable to present an effective case due 
to the indifference and lethargy of potential witnesses A student who 
refuses to respond to a subpoena may be charged with a violation of part 
9(n) of the code 

The Director of Judicial Programs should not approve a subpoena unless 
the expected testimony would be clearly relevant Likewise, a subpoena 
designed to embarrass or harass a potential witness should not be 
authorized 

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

33 Board members should be disqualified on a case by case basis 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 
members 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 Judicial 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 criminal convictions Prior 
allegations ol misconduct should not be disclosed 

39 A disciplinary hearing at the University is not analogous to a criminal trial 
The presiding officer and the board advisor are authorized to exercise 
active control over the proceedings in order to elicit relevant tacts and to 
prevent the harassment or intimidation of witnesses No party or 
representative may use threatening or abusive language, engage in 
excessive argumentation, interrupt the proceedings with redundant or 
fnvolous obiections. or otherwise disrupt the hearing 

Students have not been determined to have a constitutional right to full 
legal representation in University disciplinary hearings The privilege ol 
legal representation, granted m this part, should be carefully reviewed in 
any subsequent revision of the code 

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

41 Association does not require formal membership Individuals who 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 organization accepted or acquiesced m the act or 
statement of an individual associated with it. that individual might 
reasonably be regarded as a leader or a spokesman tor the group or 
organization 

43 "Suspension" includes deterred suspension but not interim suspension or 
suspension which is withheld See annotation six 

44 Students left with a disciplinary record after a disciplinary conference may 
request that their record be voided, in accordance with part 47 Denials 
may be appealed, pursuant to part 48 

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

46. This part is intended to discourage frivolous appeals Respondents who 
are genuinely interested in pursuing an appeal can reasonably be 
expected to prepare a written brief 

47. Appellate bodies which do not give deference (i e , a presumption ol 
validity) to lower board decisions will distort the entire disciplinary system 
Respondents would be encouraged to "test their strategy" and "pertect 
their technique" before lower boards, since the matter would simply be 
heard again before a "real" board with final authority 

Lower board members usually have the best access to the evidence. 
including an opportunity to observe the witnesses and to judge their 
demeanor Members of appellate bodies should be especially careful not 
to modify a sanction or to remand or dismiss a case simply because they 
may personally disagree with the lower tjoard's decision. 

The opportunity to appeal adverse decisions has not been determined to 
be a requirement of 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 

48 Respondents who obtain jnlormation at the hearing which might lead to 
new evidence are required to request an ad|Ournment rather than wait to 
raise the matter lor the lirst time on appeal 

49 An arbitrary and capricious decision would be a decision "unsupported by 
any evidence " The oiled language has been adopted by the Federal 
Courts as the proper standard of judicial review, under the due process 
clause, of disciplinary determinations made by slate boards or agencies 
See McDonald v. Board ol Trustees ol the University ol Illinois 375 F 
Supp 95. 108 (ND III. 1974) 

50 See annotation 19 

51 Voided files will be so marked, shall not be kept with active disciplinary 
records, and shall not leave any student with a disciplinary record 

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

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

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

55 Some discretion must be retained to void even 'permanent" disciplinary 
records It may be unnecessary, lor example, to burden a graduatinQ

Article III Human Relations Enforcement Procedures 

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

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

C To the maximum extent consistent with the purposes of this Code, the 
confidentiality of personal papers and other records and the principle of 
privileged communication shall be respected by all persons involved in the 
enforcement procedures of this Code Nothing in this Code shall be 
construed so as to conflict with the requirements of Article 76A of the 
Maryland Annotated Code Persons giving information in connection with 
the procedures described in this Code shall be advised by the person 
receiving such information of the limits of confidentiality which may properly 
be observed m Code procedures and that all documents may be subject 
to subpoena in subsequent administrative or judicial proceedings 

D Any member of the Campus community who believes that he or she has 
been or is being discriminated against in ways prohibited by this Code

the equity officer and/or the Office of Human Relations Programs prior to 
filing a formal complaint 

E The Office of Human Relations Programs shall receive formal complaints 
from any member or group within the Campus community claiming to be 
aggrieved by alleged discrimination prohibited by this Code and'or any 
other Campus document or policy relating to human relations practices 
Such complaints should give m writing the names of complainant(s) and 
respondent(s) and the time, the place, and a specific description of the 
alleged discrimination Complaints shall be submitted to the Office of 
Human Relations Programs, or else to the unit EEEO Officer or the equity 
officer Complaints must be submitted within one hundred and twenty 
(120) days of the alleged discrimination act(s) or within one hundred and

Human Relations Programs shall be forwarded to the Office ol Human 



Relations Programs within five (5) working days of their receipt Copies of 
the complaint shall be forwarded by the Office of Human Relations 
Programs to the respondent and to the appropriate unit Chairman or 
Director. Dean, Provost or Vice Chancellor 

F Complainants under this Code shall be required, as a condition precedent,

Student Transfer Policies 

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

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

Preamble 

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

The intended principal benefactor is the student, who is best sen/ed by 
current information about programs and protected by lirm arrangements 



among the public segments ol higher education in Maryland which permit him 
to plan a total degree program from the outset With successful academic 
performance, he or she can make uninterrupted progress even ttxjugh transfer 
is involved The measures of the effectiveness ol the plan is maximum 
transferability of college level credits withm the parameters of this agreement 
Essentially, transfer and native students are to be governed by the same 
academic rules and regulations 

In a complementary way the State's interests are served by having its 
higher education resources used optimally by reducing the lime taken lo 
complete a degree through the avoidance of repealed class experience 

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

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

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

courses earned at all institutions attended unless the student presents an 
Associate in Arts degree 

(a) Each public institution of higher education shall designate a person

The University Studies Program 

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

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

In fulfilling "Distributive Studies" requirements, students will have gained 
some experience of the way in which scholars in different kinds of disciplines 
make and organize observations about the world and arrive at general 
statements 

It is the purpose of "Advanced Studies" courses to show how these 
different intellectual approaches compare with each other or may be used in 
complementary ways to analyze and solve problems "Development of 
Knowledge" courses deal with the basis upon which people who use these 
different approaches claim to know something and the different kinds of 
insights to which these intellectual strategies lead Analysis of Human 
Problems" courses consider these matters m terms of specific cultural, social, 
scientific or aesthetic problems which may be approached from several points 
of view Courses in both Advanced Studies" categories require students to 
exercise critical thinking skills in the analysis of complex problems 

The University Studies requirements, designed to be spread throughout the

graduation It is the purpose of this program, in combination with the extensive 
work of the mapr, to help prepare students to become productive, aware and 
sensitive members of society capable of understanding their world and the 
many kinds of people in it and of taking responsibility for their own decisions 
and their own lives

General University Requirements 

Students who began baccalaureate study at College Park or in articulated 
programs in the Maryland community colleges prior to May, 1980 may elect to 
complete these requirements rather than the University Studies Program 
requirements (see above) 

In order to provide educational breadth for all students, there have been 
established the General University Requirements These requirements consist 
of 30 semester hours of credit distributed among the three areas listed below 
(For an exception to this regulation, see the Bachelor of General Studies 
Program, page 130 ) At least 6 hours must be taken m each area At least 9 of 
the 30 hours must be taken at the 300 level or above None of the 30 hours 
may be counted toward published departmental, college or divisional 
requirements for a degree Area A 6-12 hours elected in the Divisions ol 
Agricultural and Life Sciences. Mathematical and Physical Sciences and 
Engineering Area B 6-12 hours in the Divisions of Behavioral and Social 
Sciences. Human and Community Resources Area C 6-12 hours in the 
Division of Arts and Humanities 

In meeting these area requirements, students may choose from among any 
undergraduate courses lor which they are qualified The students may select 
either the pass-fail or letter grading option for these courses as outlined on 
pages 44 and 45 Students are urged to consult with academic advisors for 
guidance in determining which courses in each area best fit individual needs 
and interests

toward the 30hour General University Requirement but may not count these 
credits toward the satisfaction of the minimum 6-hour requirernent in any ot the 
three designated areas Credit for such a course may be in addition lo the 
12-hour maximum in any area 

NOTE: Students who began baccalaureate study after May. 1978 must

Advanced Placement Program (A.P.). Please consult the description of this 
program under Admissions and Orientation 

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) . This program exists for the 
purpose of awarding proficiency credit, or of othenwise recognizing college 
level competence, achieved outside the college classroom Two types of CLEP 



tests are available General Examinations, which cover the content of a broad 
field of study, and Subject Examinations, which cover the specific content of a 
college course Credit can be earned and will be recognized by the College 
Park campus for some CLEP General or Subiect Examinations, provided 
satisfactory scores are attained 

Policies and Administration of the Examinations 

These tests are administered at CLEP testing centers throughout the 
country Written applications must be completed and on file at the testing 
center selected, usually not later than three working weeks prior to the 
intended testing date The University of lylaryland is a CLEP Test Center (Test

given credit and quality points toward graduation in the amount regularly 
allowed in the course, provided such credits do not duplicate credit obtained 
by some other means (eg, earned in high school or another collegiate 
institution) 

Although the mathematics and foreign language departments receive the 
most applications for credit-by-examination, most departments will provide 
examinations for a number of their courses Any student who wishes more 
information or to apply lor an examination should see the Director of Special 
Advising Programs, Room 3151. Hornbake Library

education maiors prior to graduation Credentials also may be filed by any 
student or alumnus to be used in graduate school application, job search or a 
future career change 

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

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

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

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

Office of Experiential Learning Programs 

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

Cooperative Education Program in Liberai Arts and Business. This 
program allows students to alternate semesters of on-campus study with 
semesters of full-time paid work experience in business, industry, or 
government To be eligible, a student must have completed 36 semester 
hours of undergraduate work with a 2 grade point average While positions 
are competitive, and while opportunities are greatest in technical fields, many 
placements are available m areas of traditional liberal arts study 

Internships and Field Experience Courses. Many academic departments 
offer opportunities for students to earn academic credit (usually 3-6 hours) 
through participation in activities in the community, accompanied by an 
appropriate academic product stemming from the experience ELP will help 
students to match their interests with existing courses and nearly 2.000 
community placements and find departments willing to sponsor activities 
proposed by students The Office also assists departments in finding suitable 
placements for students 

Information on the campus-wide field experience courses 386/387. is 
provided by the ELP staff Each of these courses may be offered for from one 
to three credits The student should be aware that enrollment requires 
permission of the offering academic unit and must be concurrent in both 386 
and 387 in the same academic unit Students may select a 386/387 sequence 
only once in any given academic unit for a maximum of six credits Only one 
such sequence may be taken in any given semester The maximum number of 
386 and 387 credits applicable toward a baccalaureate degree is 24 



Volunteer Service. The Office maintains a listing of over 1000 organizations 
which have expressed an interest in working with University of Maryland 
student volunteers Without the complications of arranging credit or pay, 
volunteers have an opportunity to investigate their interests and gain 
experience PACE (People Active m Community Effort), a student organized 
program, provides educationally valuable volunteer community service 
projects With funding from the Student Government Association, PACE 
arranges for transportation to the volunteer site, develops student leadership, 
and acts as a liaison with the community PACE is located m 1101 of the 
Student Union Building

Degree Programs 

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

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

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

Undergraduate Advising Center 

Many University students choose to be "undecided" about choice of maior 
Sonne want more information about job opportunities before choosing, some 
may be considering several possible majors, some are trying out a variety of 
courses, some really don't know what to choose 

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

Other Services

Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Law, and Pre-Allied-Health areas 

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

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

Academic Advising 

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

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

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

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

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

(4) to more frequently explore opportunities outside the classroom for 
intellectual and cultural development. 

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

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

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

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

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

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



Students Who Withdraw — Given circumstances deemed appropriate by the 
Office of Withdrawal and ReenroHment, 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 be acknowledged/recorded by an advisor before registration can t>e 
completed The intent is to require advising of those students who have a 
record of consecutive withdrawals, withdrawal during a semester following 
probation, and various other reasons for similar concern 

Students Nearing Senior Status — After a student has earned between seventy 

and eighty credits toward a baccalaureate degree, that same student shall be 
urged m writing to meet with an advisor This meeting is lor the express 
purpose of reviewing the student's progress toward the degree and, at a 
minimum, requires the advisor to detail, m writing, all coursework yet to be 
completed in fulfillment of the degree requirements 

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

Finding an Advisor — Undergraduate students at the College Park Campus 
are encouraged to use the many advisement opportunities that are available to 
them At all academic levels — divisional, college, and departnnental — 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 locale 
an advisor or who have questions about campus advising programs should 
visit or call the Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 3151. Hornbake Library.

Undergraduate Degree Programs 

One major advantage of attending a university campus is the broad range 
of programs available This diversity allows the student to change from one 
major to another without leaving the institution, to choose from a wide spectrum 
of elective courses, and to benefit from daily contact with students of diverse 
academic interests and backgrounds For a complete list ol undergraduate 
programs of study, see Part 1 of this catalog 



IHonors Programs 

A number of special opportunities are available to energetic, academically

• Members of Association of College Honor Societies 



Oldest and most widely respected honorary societies m the United Slates Only 
twelve percent ol American colleges and universities have been granted 
chapters and thus can elect their graduates to membership 

Invitation to membership is based on outstanding scholastic achievement 
in studies ol the liberal arts and sciences Student members are chosen 
entirely on the basis ol academic excellence, neither extra-curricular 
leadership nor service to the community is considered 

New members are nominated by a committee ol six laculty members who 
represent in equal number the natural sciences, the social sciences and the 
humanities Final election to membership is by vote ol the resident members 
ol the University ol Maryland Gamma Chapter (that is. laculty members who 
are members ol Phi Beta Kappa) No more than ten percent ol the liberal arts 
and sciences graduates may be elected each year 

Requirements lor consideration include the lollowing 

1 Residence. At least hall the credit hours required lor graduation must be 
taken at the University ol Maryland, College Park 

2 Liberal Courses. Three-lourths ol the hours required lor graduation (i e , 90 
hours) must be m liberal arts or liberal sciences Litjeral courses means 
courses thai are theoretical and academic, not prolessional or applied 

3 Required Courses. One semester ol mathematics and two semesters ol a 
loreign language are required unless equivalent knowledge is shown 
through examination 

4 Grade Point Average. The student must have attained a grade point 
average ol at least 3 5 in all the liberal courses taken 

5 Distribution ol Courses. The credit hours presented lor graduation must be 
more evenly distributed among the natural sciences, the social sciences, 
and the humanities than the University requires lor graduation under the 
University Studies Program Minimal qualilications in more than one area 
may preclude election Students with strong courses, broad distribution, 
and moderately high grade point averages are prelerred to those with a 
very high grade point average in a narrow range ol courses 

At least one laboratory course in the natural sciences is desirable Harder 
courses will count more than easy ones In the social sciences and the 
humanities, some traditional courses which require reading books and 
writing papers are expected Internships may be counted as prolessional, 
rather than liberal, courses 

6 Junior Election. A very small number ol students are elected at the end of 
their junior year instead ol the semester in which they are graduated They 
must have at least a 3 75 grade point average, and iullill the same 
distribution requirements as seniors 

MEETING THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS DOES NOT GUARANTEE 
ELECTION TO PHI BETA KAPPA THE JUDGMENT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON THE QUALITY, DEPTH AND BREADTH OF THE STUDENTS RECORD 
IS THE DECIDING FACTOR IN EVERY CASE 

Students who are in doubt about equivalency examinations in math and 
loreign language or about what courses are counted as liberal should visit the

The horticulturist combines a knowledge of the basic sciences with an 
intimate knowledge of plants and their requirements in an effort to help meet 
the food needs of the world population and to help beautify man's 



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

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

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

Advanced studies m the Department, leading to the MS, and PhD. 
degrees, are available to outstanding students having a strong horticultural 
motivation for research, university teaching and/or extension education 

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

Biological Sciences Program * 

This program is designed for the student who is interested in a broader 

education in the biological sciences than is available m the programs for 
majors in the various departments of the Division of Agricultural and Life 

Sciences The program is appropriate lor 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 ol courses from the various 



departments in the biological sciences 

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

Advising ol students in the Biology program is coordinated in a central 
advising ollice established by the Division ol Agricultural and Lite Sciences 
Students must select an area ol emphasis Irom among the lollowing 
programs — Marine Biology, Ecology, Physiology, or Genetics Alternatively, the 
student may elect a General Biology program emphasizing work in Animal 
Science. Botany, Entomology, Microbiology or Zoology In each case, advising 
will be by the department in which most of the work is to be taken For orderly 
planning and advising, students are urged to determine their emphasis early 
and no later than the beginning ol the junior year Changes in emphasis 
normally cannot be made during the senior year without delaying graduation 
Students in the program who are also attempting to meet the requirements of a 
pre-professional program should also seek advice from advisors for the 
respective programs Students in the program who wish to prepare lor 
secondary school science teaching should contact the faculty of the Science 
Teaching Center of the College of Education lor inlormation concerning 
requirements lor certification 

Curriculum. All students in the Biological Sciences program must satisfy the

Geology is the basic science of the eanh in its broadest sense, geology 
concerns itsell with planetary lormation and modilication with emphasis on the 
study ol the planet Eanh This study directs its attention to the eanhs internal 
and external structure, materials, chemical and physical processes and its 
physical and biological history Geology concerns itsell with the application ol 
geological principles and with application ol physics, chemistry, biology and 
mathematics to the understanding ol our planet 

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

Geological scientists lind employment in government, industrial and 
academic establishments In general, graduate training is expected lor 
advancement to the most rewarding positions Most industrial positions require 
an M S degree Geology is enjoying a strong employment outlook at the 
present because of our mineral, fuel and environmental concerns At this lime, 
students with the B S , particularly those with training in geophysics, can lind 
satislactory employment However, graduate school is strongly recommended 
lor those students desiring a prolessional career in the geosciences 

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

The (3eology curricula is designed to meet the requirements ol industry, 
graduate school and government However, students may select, at their

The Agricultural Experiment Station 

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

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

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

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



Division of Arts and Humanities 67 



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

The Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station was established in 1888 to 
comply with the Hatch Act of 1887 authorizing the establishment of an 
agncultural experiment station at the Land Grant Colleges Actually, the charter 
of the Maryland Agricultural College in 1856 specilially authorized 
establishment of a demonstration farm The Station is supported by federal 
funds under the Hatch Act as amended. Stale 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 pan of the total university, the Cooperative Extension Sen/ice takes the 
University of Maryland to the people of Maryland, wherever they are In its role 
as the "off-campus, non-credil, out-of-classroom" arm of the University, it 
extends the classroom to all parts of the State With its uniquely effective 
educational delivery system, the Cooperative Extension Service helps people 
to help themselves, to define their problems, to evaluate reasonable 
alternatives, and to generate action to solve their problems 

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

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

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

The Maryland Cooperative Extension Service is known for its programs in 
agriculture (including care of urban home grounds and gardens), home 
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 home visits, 
phone and office conferences, and structured events such as meetings, 
institutes, workshops and training conferences Carefully planned teaching 
events include tours, field days, and demonstrations Indirect communications 
utilize circular letters, radio and television programs, newspaper articles and 
columns, articles in specialized publications, and exhibits to reach a statewide 
audience 

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

In each county and in Baltimore City competent extension agents conduct 
educational work in program areas consistent with the needs of the citizenry 
and as funds permit The county staff is supported by a faculty of specialists in 
the Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences in College Park and the 
agricultural programs of University of Maryland Eastern Shore Through these 
efforts, local people are assisted in finding solutions to their problems 

The Cooperative Extension Service works in close harmony and association 
with many groups and organizations In addition to work on farms and with 
agri-businesses, extension programs are aimed at many small and part time 
farmers, rural non-farm and urban family consumers as well as watermen and 
marine related businessmen Both rural and urban families learn good food 
habits through the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program 
Thousands of Ixiys and girls gain leadership knowledge and experience and 
are provided practical educational instruction in 4-H clubs and other youth 
groups 

To accomplish its mission, the Cooperative Extension Service works closely 
with teaching and research faculty of the University and with units of the 
University outside of agriculture, as well as state and federal agencies and 
private groups Short courses, workshops and conferences in various fields of 
interest are conducted on the College Park Campus and at other locations 
throughout the state A wide vanety 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 both maiors and non-maprs Students interested in the traditional 
fields of the liberal arts will find many attractive offerings in the Department of 
An. Music. Communication Arts and Theatre, English and the foreign 
languages. History, and Philosophy Here they will study the artifacts and 
documents of the past and the present, reflecting both western and 
non-western civilizations 

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

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

Many of the mapr programs in Ans and Humanities make excellent pre-law 
preparation In fact, with a judicious choice of electives m this and other 
divisions, students with any mapr in Arts and Humanities may prepare 
themselves for careers or advanced training in business, government, law, 
teaching, publishing, library work, and museum work, among others Internship 
opportunities 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 of Arts and Humanities is the 
Provost The Provost's office staff serve as ombudsmen for students The 
Provost s office is responsible for certifying that students have met all degree 
requirements The staff evaluates transfer credits and coordinates the advising 
of newly admitted students They maintain a liaison with the vanous 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 lustifiable The Provost's office can interpret 
existing regulations and, where it again feels ethically justified, can make 
certain exceptions. Students mapring in architecture and purnalism will work 
directly with the staffs of the School of Architecture and the College of 
Journalism During registration, students are usually seen on a first-come, 
first-served basis On other occasions, if the problem is an emergency or is 
truly important, the 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 

College of Journalism

majors in art history is committed to the study and scholarly interpretation of 
existing works of art, from the prehistoric era to our times, while the studio 
major stresses the student s direct participation m the creation of works of an 

In spite of this difference, both majors are rooted in the concept of art as a 
humanistic experience, and share an essential common aim the development 
of aesthetic sensitivity, understanding, and knowledge For this reason, 
students in both majors are required to progress through a "common

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the dance 
program oilers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a foundation 
lor the dance professions By developing an increasing awareness ol the 
physical, emotional and intellectual aspects ol movement in general, the 
student eventually is able to integrate his own particular mind-body 
consciousness into a more meaninglul whole To facilitate the acquisition of 
new movement skills, as well as creative and scholarly insights in dance, the 
curriculum provides a structured breadth experience at the lower division level. 
At the upper division level the student may either involve himself in various 
general university electives. or he may concentrate his energies in a particular 
area ol emphasis in dance Although an area ol 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 performance and 
choreographic opportunities lor all dance students, ranging from informal 
workshops to fully mounted concerts both on and off campus More advanced 
students may have the opportunity ol working with Maryland Dance Theater, 
which IS in residence in the Department Company auditions are held each 
year in the Spring 

Ma|or course requirements total 48 semester hours in dance and 6 
semester hours in non-department supporting areas 01 these, a minimum ol 
15 semester hours must be taken in dance at the upper division level Students 
who major in dance may not use DANC courses lor more than 60% (72 
credits) ol their 120 credit requirement lor graduation The specific dance 
courses required lor the B A degree are DANC 102(2). 109(2). 138(2). 165(3). 
200(3). 208(3). 210(3). 308(3). 471(3). 482(3). or 483(3). 484(3). modern 
technique (12). ballet (4). and lazz (2) The level ol technique classes will be 
determined by placement auditions The six credits in supporting courses are 
selected with the prior approval of a faculty advisor A grade ol "C" or higher 
must be attained in all dance courses 

New, re-entering and transfer students are expected to contact the 
department following admission to the University for instructions regarding 
advising, class placement auditions and registration procedures The 
department strongly recommends that new dance ma|ors 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

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

The following are among the courses giving the general student training in 
rigorous thinking, experience in critical and imaginative reflection on 
philosophical problems or familiarity with the philosophical foundations of 
Western and other cultures PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy). PHIL 142 
(Ethics), PHIL 170 (Introduction to Logic). PHIL 173. PHIL 174 (Logic and the 
English Language I and II), PHIL 236 (Philosophy of Religion), and the 
historical courses 310, 316. 320, 325, 326, 327

their own special disciplines, a number of courses are appropriate PHIL 233 
(Philosophy in Literature), PHIL 250 and 453 (Philosophy of Science I and II). 
PHIL 245 and 445 (Social and Political Philosophy I and II). PHIL 360 
(Philosophy of Language). PHIL 330 (Philosophy of Art), PHIL 334 (Philosophy 
of Ivlusic). PHIL 438 (Topics in Philosophical Theology). PHIL 450 and 451 
(Scientific Thought I and II). PHIL 452 (Philosophy of Physics). PHIL 455 
(Philosophy of the Social Sciences), PHIL 456 (Philosophy of Biology), PHIL 
457 (Philosophy of History), PHIL 458 (Philosophy of Psychology), and PHIL 
474 (Induction and Probability) 

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

The Department's curriculum is enriched by courses in philosophy and 
public policy issues taught by research associates in the Center for Philosophy 
and Public Policy under the repeatable designations PHIL 308 (Studies in 
Contemporary Philosophy) and PHIL 408 (Topics in Contemporary Philosophy), 
cross-listed under similar headings in Government and Politics Topics include 
such subjects as Business Ethics, Welfare and Distributive Justice, 
Responsibility of Professionals. Environmental Ethics and the Morality of Forced 
Military Draft 

The departmental requirements for a major in philosophy are as follows (1) 
a total of at least 30 hours in philosophy, not including PHIL 100, (2) PHIL 140, 
371. 310, 320, 326 and at least two courses numbered 399 or above. (3) a

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

The College of Business and Management subscribes to the policy that a 
student's undergraduate program below the junior year should include no 
advanced, professional level courses This policy is based on the conviction 
that the value derived from these advanced courses is materially enhanced 
when based upon a sound foundation in the liberal arts 

In adhering to the above policy, it is the practice of the College of Business 
and Management to accept in transfer from a regionally accredited community 
college no more than 12 semester hours of work in business administration 
courses The 12 semester hours of business administration acceptable in 
transfer are specifically identified as three (3) semester hours in an introductory 
business course, three (3) semesler hours in business statistics, and six (6) 
semester hours of elementary accounting Thus, it is anticipated that the 
student transferring 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 liberal arts A total of 60 semester 
hours may be transferred from a community college and applied toward a 
degree from the College of Business and Management 

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

The College of Business and Management normally accepts transfer credits 
from 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

Amhropoiogy has been delmed as the study ol 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 o( time and ail 
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 changed through lime, 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 knowledge and behavior 

The cross-cultural experience gives us not only specific knowledge of other 
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 about the cultural patterns with which they grew up The four 
subfields of Anthropology (cultural anthropology, archaeology, 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 Ivlasters or a Ph D , striving to advance the frontiers 
of knowledge concerning our species and the cultural process, or combines 
the anthropology 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 background, a base from which 
you can take off in a variety of directions 

The Anthropology Department offers beginning and advanced coursework 
in the four principal subdivisions of the discipline: physical anthropology, 
linguistics, archaeology and cultural anthropology Within each area, the 
Department offers some degree ol specialization and provides a variety of 
opportunities within the curriculum Laboratory courses are offered in physical 
anthropology and archaeology, field schools are offered in archaeology and 
ethnography Instruction is available in both Old World and New World 
archaeology and ethnology, and lab courses include human evolution, human 
population biology, forensic anthropology, osteology, and archaeological 
analysis The interrelationship of all branches of anthropology is emphasized 
Courses in these subdivisions may be used to fulfill the minor or "supporting 
courses" requirement in some programs leading to the B A degree 

The Anthropology Department has a total of five laboratories located in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into leaching labs and research labs At 
present, there are two physical anthropology labs one osteological research 
lab, and one "wet" lab for teaching and research in serology, histology, and 
anatomy These laboratories contain radiographic, hislolic. and 
electrophonetic equipment, and the osteological lab is centered around an 
extensive research collection There is one Ethnology/Linguistics lab which also 
doubles as a seminar room The Department's two Archaeology labs, 
containing materials collected from field schools of the past several years, 
sen/e as both teaching and research labs 

Anthropology 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 be 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 major's 

specific anthropological interest) Supporting courses are to be chosen by 

the student and approved by a faculty advisor 

In addition to the above 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 
select his or her Faculty Advisor to fit particular interests and needs. All 
Anthropology faculty members are advisors (and should be contacted 
individually) who help plan each student's program All majors are expected to 
seek out a faculty advisor and consult wnt him/her on a regular basis 



The Honors Program. The Anthropology Department also offers an Honors 
Program which provides the student an opportunity to pursue m-depth study of 
her or his interests Acceptance is contingent upon a 3 5 GPA in Anthropology 
courses and a 3 overall average Members of this Program are encouraged 
to take as many Departmental Honors courses as possible The citation is 
awarded upon completion and review of a thesis to be done within the field ol 
Anthropology Details and applications are available in the Anthropology otlice. 
or contact your advisor for further inlormation 

ANTH 101 (or equivalent), or permission of instructor is prerequisite for all 
upper division archeology or physical anthropology courses ANTH 102 (or 
equivalent), or permission of instructor is prerequisite for all upper division 
cultural anthropology and linguistics courses

■ Appointment with unit indicated. 

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 for 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 maior 
are as follows 

(1) Economic Courses (30 hours) 

Economics maprs must earn 30 credit hours m economics with an average

subsequent career plans, and completing the several relevant courses to that 
sub-specialty 

Those students planning to pursue graduate study in Economics must 
begin to prepare themselves analytically for graduate work by locusmg on 
theory, statistics, and mathematics m their undergraduate curriculum This 
should include ECON 422 (Quantitative Ivlethods) 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

■ Joint appointment with indicated unit. 

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 ol 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 m the physical/natural sciences or the 
behavioral'social sciences The ability to write clearly and to synthesize 
information and concepts are highly valued in geographical education and 
practice International interests are best pursued with complementary study 
emphases m 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 Ihe Central Intelligence Agency They are on Ihe staffs ol the 
legislative research branch, the Library of Congress and the National Archives 
At the slate and local government level there is an increasing demand for 
geographers m 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 
Irom elementary school through graduate work continues to employ many 
geographers each year Some Imd geography to be an excellent background 
for careers m Ihe military, lournalism, law, travel and lounsm, Ihe 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 mapr 
programs it is possible tor 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 mapr 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-lail

The three lower division courses are to be- completed prior to GEOG 310 and 
all other upper division courses GEOG 201. 202, and 203 may be taken m any 
order and a student may register for more than one in any semester GEOG 
305 is prerequisite to GEOG 310 GEOG 310 is specifically designed as a 
preparation to upper division work and should be taken by Ihe end of the 
junior year Upon consultation with a department advisor, a reasonable load ol 
other upper division work in geography may be taken concurrently with GEOG 
310 Completion" of GEOG 310 satisfies for geography majors only the upper 
level English composition requirement 

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

Introduction to Geography — Geography 100. Introduction to Geography is a 

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

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

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

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

Cartography— Prepares students for careers in map design, compilation 
and reproduction The department offers various courses in thematic mapping, 
cartographic history and theory, map evaluation, and map and photo 
interpretation Students concentrating in cartography are not required to take 
GEOG 305 and are limited to nine hours ol upper level systematic geography 
courses Supporting area courses must be taken Irom a list provided by the 
Department Ail math programs should be approved by a departmental 
advisor 

Cultural Geography— 01 interest to students particularly concerned with the 
geographic aspects ol population, politics, and other social and cultural 
phenomena, and with historical geography In addition to departmental course 
olferings this specialization depends on work in sociology, anthropology, 
government and politics, history, and economics 

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

All math programs should be approved by a departmental advisor 

Internship. The Department offers a one-semester internship program for 
undergraduates The goal of the program is to enhance the intellectual growth 
and the career opportunities of undergraduates The internship provides the 
students with an opportunity to expand their understanding ol the field by 
linking the theoretical aspects of geography acquired in the classroom to the 
applied aspects operating m a working situation The internship program is 
open only to Geography pmors and seniors All interns must have the following 
prerequisites GEOG 201 202. 203, 305 and 310 An application form from the 
undergraduate Geography advisor must be submitted one semester before the 
internship is desired

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs designed to 
prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, 
teaching, and a variety of graduate programs, law schools, and for intelligent 
and purposeful citizenship Satisfactory completion of requirements leads to a 
B.A degree m Government and Politics 

The study of politics is both an ancient discipline and a modern social 
science The origin of the discipline can be traced back to the earliest limes 
when philosophers, statesmen, and citizens studied the nature of government, 
justice, responsibility, and the consequences of government's action More 
recently, the study of politics has also emphasized scientific observations 



about politics Today, the discipline reflects a broad effort to collect data about 
politics and governments utilizing relatively new techniques developed by all of 
the social sciences 

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

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

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

Public Sector Employment, Within this broad category are advising programs in 
general public administration leading to careers at entry-level positions in 
federal, stale, 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. Amencan 
politics, and public law

relations and comparative politics along with a strong substantive minor, such 
as economics, business, or resource management In addition, a strong 
background in a foreign language is highly recommended

■ Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

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

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

Department requirements are the same for the Bachelor of Science and the 
Bachelor of Arts degrees A minimum of 35 hours in psychology courses, not 
including PSYC 478 or 479, must be taken Courses taken must include PSYC 
100, 200, and two laboratory courses (PSYC 400. 410. or 420) In addition, a 
total of 14 credits must be taken at the 400 level, including the two laboratory 
courses noted above 

In order to assure breadth of coverage, courses in the department have 
been divided into four areas The 35 credit total must include at least two 
courses from each of at least two of four areas and at least one course from 
each of the remaining areas 

The areas and courses follow 

Area I: 206. 301. 310. 400. 401. 402. 403. 404 405, 410, 412, 453, Area II: 
221. 420. 421. 422. 423. 440. 441, Honors 430C, Area III: 331. 333. 335. 431, 
433. 435. and Area IV:36^. 451. 452. 460. 461, 462, 463, 464, 465, 466, 467 

Supporting courses to supplement the work m the major for the Bachelor of 
Science degree must constitute a 15 credit area, including at least two 
laboratory courses and at least 9 advanced hours in relevant math and 
science departments The student should see an academic advisor m the 
Psychology Department for advice and approval of a course sequence 
Students should consult the current Psychology Undergraduate Program Guide 
lor a list of approved advanced math-science courses This guide is available 
in the Psychology Undergraduate Office (Room ZP 1141) 



Although a minimum of thirty-five (35) hours of psychology coursework is 
required for a psychology major, each and every psychology course taken by 
the mapr student must be counted towards the psychology major 

A grade of C or better must be earned m the 35 credits of psyclTOlogy 
courses counted toward the major or a course must be repealed until a C or 
better is earned II the course is not repealed then another psychology course 
fulfilling the same requirements would have to be substituted The 
departmental grade point average will be a cumulative computation of all 
grades earned in psychology and must be a 2 or above 

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

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

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

■ Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

Sociology is the study of human social and group behavior, concentrating 
on the interaction between people, the social organization of people and social 
order and social change withm societies Sociology s subject matter ranges 
from the intimate family to the hostile mob, from crime to religion, from the 
divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture, 
from the sociology of work to the sociology of sport In fact few fields have 
such broad scope and relevance 

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

The program of instruction concentrates on those areas of Sociology where 
knowledge is most rapidly accumulating These areas are social psychology. 
organizations, family, and social stratification Beyond this tfie Department 
places heavy emphasis on analytic skills— both thinking and data analytic — to 
prepare B A s for jobs in the general caliber of the G S 7 level To implement 
this process the Department offers the opportunity lor specialization m one or 
more ol the seven following areas Social Science Research and Methodology, 
Social Psychology, Organizations and Occupations. Military Sociology Social 
Demography, Social Stralilication, and Family Sociology These specializations 
require a minimum of four courses to be completed from those offered m the 
specific area Information is available m the Undergraduate Office detailing the 
individual requirements for each area of concentration 

A specialization m Social Science Research and Methodology gives 
students experience necessary to seek employment in the burgeoning 
research area Combined with emphasis in any number ol substantive areas 
the statistics and methodological skills acquired m 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 



Behavioral and Social Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 89 



behavior This emphasis is particularly valuable lor siudenls interested m 
Human Service, (Counseling, Personnel Work and other people related 
occupations m business and industry 

An Organizations and Occupations concentration is particularly useful to 
pursuit ol careers in the business world and bureaucratic research An 
Organization specialty involves theoretical instruction in formal organization, 
bureaucracy, social stratitication and application to any institution that is 
organized m a bureaucratic term such as education, the military and politics 
Another facet of this concentration is the whole area ol 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 rapi'dly growing specially area 

Family Sociology is a specialty that examines the development ol 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 lor Human Service, Counseling, and research occupations It is 
equally valuable for those who plan lor 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 ol 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 ol concentration can be combined to advantage or can be 
taken as part of a double mapr in con|unction with programs m other 
compatible areas such as economics, government and politics, psychology, 
business, etc This program versatility and the rich experiential learning 
possibilities ol the Washington Metropolitan Area combine to make the 
Sociology curnculum 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 pas&lail Thirty-two" of these hours are m sociology course work which 
must be completed with a mmumum average ol C, 14" hours are in required 
core courses and 18 hours are Sociology electives, ol 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 maiors 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 
sehes of courses from outside of the department which relate to the mapr 
substantive or research interests in Sociology These courses need not come 
from the same department, but at least 6 hours must be Irom the Division of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences The following are among those recommended 
by the Sociology Undergraduate Committee for maprs, ANTH 102, CMSC 103, 
ECON 205. GVPT 100, 170, 260, HIST 224, PHIL 170, 250, 455, PSYC 100 
Further information about suggested supporting courses can be obtained in 
the Undergraduate Office (Room 2108, Art/Sociology BIdg ) 

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

" 47 hours are required because SOCY 201 and 202 are 4 hour courses. For 
transfer students or those with equivalent courses which are only 3 hour 
courses, exceptions to this 47 hour requirement may be made by the 
Coordinator of the Sociology Undergraduate Program.

College of Human Ecology 

The College of Human Ecology focuses m 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 v»ith the environment in both the 
immediate and long-range future 

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

The College seeks to provide the proper balance of educational 
experiences which prepare an individual in the professional context with those 



experiences which benefit him personally as a fully functioning and 
contributing member of society This balance includes grounding m 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 lor 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 ideas 
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 
contnbuting to 

1 The individual's psycho-social development 

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

3 Effective resource utilization including consumer competence. 

4 The individual's physiological health and development, 

5 The physical and aesthetic components of man's environment 

6 Effective use of leisure time 

7 The enrichment of family life 

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

Objectives 

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

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

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

Special Facilities and Activities. The College of Human Ecology building 
follows the Campus tradition in style, and a construction program has been 
completed to provide expanded facilities A management center is maintained 
on the Campus for resident experiences in management activities of family life 
as well as a Center for Family. Housing and the Community Also located in the 
College is the Center for Consumer Research

College of Library and Information 
Services 

The College of Library and Information Services is a graduate program 
which draws its students from many undergraduate disciplines Although many 
of the College of Library and Information Services students have degrees in 
the social sciences and humanities, there is an increasing interest in people 
with diverse backgrounds — in the sciences, 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 1980s must 
have competence in many disciplines if he or she is to serve well m 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 luKills 
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 librananship and 
media, students other than education students interested in library and media 
courses may register lor the undergraduate library science courses without 
being enrolled in the certification program 

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

has an opportunity to gam an adequate background m 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 m 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 matenalty 
increase the vocational opportunities which are available to a graduate in 
physical education

KIneslologlcal Sciences Curriculum This program is designed for those 
students who are vitally interested in the fascinating realm of sport and the 
human activity sciences, but not necessarily interested in preparing for 
teaching in the public schools The body of knowledge explored by this 
curriculum may be described briefly as follows 

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

foundations and the study of social factors as they relate to human 

behavior 

Biomechanics, exercise physiology, the theoretical bases and effects of 

physical activity, neuromotor learning and the psychological factors 

inherent m physical performance 

The quantification and description of performance and the relation of these 

factors to human development 

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

College of Engineering 

The College ol Engineering otiers tour year progfams leading either to Ihe 
degree ot Bachelor ol Science with curriculum designation in Aerospace 
Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or 
to the degree ol Bachelor ol Science in Engineering with an Engineering option 
or an Applied Science option One example of Ihe Bachelor ol Science in 
Engineering is Nuclear Engineering In addition, each ol the loregoing degree 
programs may be pursued through the live-year Maryland Plan lor Cooperative 
Engineering Education The engineering programs integrate these elements 
(1) basic sciences, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, (2) engineering 
sciences including mechanics ol solids and lluids, engineering materials 
thermodynamics, electricity, and magnetism, (3) prolessional studies in maior 
fields of engineering specialization, and (4) general studies including liberal 
arts and social studies as part of the University Studies Program Each 
program lays a broad base for continued learning alter college in prolessional 
practice, in business and industry, in public service, or in graduate study and 
research 

General Information. Increasingly, Ihe boundary between engineers and 
applied scientists or applied mathematicians becomes less distinct The 
various branches ol engineering similarly interact with each other, as technical 
problems become more sophisticated, and require a combined attack Irom 
several disciplines The engineer occupies an intermediate position between 
science and the public, because, in addition to understanding the scientilic 
principles of a situation, he is concerned with the timing, economics and 
values that define the useful application of those principles 

High School Preparation. Preparation for pursuing an engineering degree 
curriculum begins in the freshman or sophomore year of high school The time 
required to complete the various degree programs may be extended beyond 
the four years cited in this catalog to the extent that an incoming student may 
be deficient in his/her high school preparation Pre-engineenng students 
normally enroll in an academic program in high school The course of study 
should include 3-1/2 to 4 years of college preparatory mathematics (including 
algebra, trigonometry, plane and solid geometry and pre-calculus 
mathematics) In addition, students should complete one year each of physics 
and chemistry 

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

Structure of Engineering Curricula. Courses in the normal curriculum or 
program and prescribed credit hours leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections pertaining to 
each department in the College of Engineering No student may modify the 
prescribed number of hours without special permission from the Dean of the 
College The courses in each curriculum may be classified in the following 
categories 

1 Courses in the 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 the 
Dean of the College 

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

Baalc Format of the Freshman-Sophomore Years In Engineering. The 

freshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to lay a strong 
foundation in mathematics, physical sciences and the engineering sciences 
upon which the student will later develop a prolessional program during the 
upper division (junior and senior) years The College course requirements lor 
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 llexibility in 
choosing a specific area of engineering specialization Although the 
engineering student selects a major field at the start of the sophomore year, 
this intramural program commonality affords the student the maximum flexibility 
of choice of interdepartmental transfer up to the end of the sophomore year

Students who are not prepared to schedule MATH 140 are advised to 
register for a preparatory course — MATH 115 These students are also 
advised to attend summer school following their freshman year to complete 
MATH 141 and PHYS 161 prior to entrance into the sophomore year ol study 
MATH 141 and PHYS 161 are prerequisites lor many courses required in the 
sophomore year ENES 110 should be taken in summer school or the fall 
semester. 

• The chemistry curiiculum has been changed recently. Check with Dean s Office before 
registering for CHEM 104 

•• Qualified students may elect to take CHEI^ 105 and 115 (4 cr his each) instead of 
CHEM 103 and 113. 

The Sophomore Year In Engineering. With the beginning ol 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 lor the students 
academic guidance, counseling and program planning Irom that point until the 
completion of the degree requirements of that department as well as the 
College For the specific requirements, see the curriculum listing in each 
engineenng department 

College Regulations 

1 The responsibility lor proper registration and lor satisfying stated 
prerequisites lor any course must rest with the student — as does the 
responsibility lor 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 m mathematics, physics and chemistry have highest 
priority, and it is strongly recommended that every engineering student 
register lor mathematics and chemistry — or mathematics and 
physics — each semester until the student has fully satisfied requirements of 
the College of Engineenng in these subjects 

3 To be eligible for a bachelor's degree in the College of Engineering, a 
student must have an overall average ol at least a C— 2 and a grade of 
C or better in all courses with an EN prefix Responsibility for knowing and 
meeting all degree requirements for graduation in any curriculum rests with 
the student

4 A Universily Studies Program is required ol students who entered UMCP 
beginning in May 1980 The University Studies Program replaces the 
General University Requirements lor 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 m engineering at the University 
of Maryland These curricula are identified as Engineering Transfer Programs 
in the catalogs of the sponsoring institutions The various associate degree 
programs in technology do not provide the preparation and transferability into 
the professional degree curricula as the designated transfer programs 

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

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

Dual Degree Program. The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative 
arrangement between the College of Engineering and selected liberal arts 
colleges which allows students to earn undergraduate degrees from both 
institutions in a five-year program A student in the Dual Degree Program will 
attend the liberal arts college for approximately three (3) academic years 
(minimum 90 hours) and the University of Maryland. College of Engineering for 
approximately two (2) academic years (minimum hours required — determined 
individually, 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 State College, Columbia Union College. Coppin. Frostburg. King College 
(Bristol. Tenn ), Morgan Slate University. Notre Dame ol Maryland. St Mary's 
(St Mary's City). Salisbury Stale. Shippensburg State University (PA), Towson 
Stale University, Western Maryland College and Trinity (Washington, D C ) 

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 and one-half to five calendar 
year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree The academic 
requirements for students following the Co-op Plan ol 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 penods ol professional internship which must be satislaclorily 
completed to quality lor the baccalaureate degree under the Co-op Plan 

The Co-op Program begins after the student has completed the Ireshman 
and sophmore requirements ol a mapr field The structure of Engineering 
Co-op is an alternating sequence ol study and internship As lar as Co-op is 
concerned, there are three sessions — fall and spring semesters (20 weel<s 
each) and a summer session (10 weel<s) This alternating plan ol 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 mapr field of engineering — or to determine whether to 
continue in engineering — without a commitment to either the regular tour-year 
or the Co-op Plan of Education A more mature and meaninglul senes of 
professional internship assignments are possible to benefit both the student 
and the proiessional partner Also, the plan is readily adaptable to the needs 
ol the student translerring to the University Irom the engineering Iransler 
programs ol community or slate colleges 

Students need only meet two criteria lor entry into the Engineering Co-op 
Program They are (1) completion ol the sophomore requirements (usually 
about 65 degree credits) and (2) the establishment ol a cumulative grade point 
average at the University ol Maryland ol at least 2 0/4 

A typical study-intern schedule is shown below The typical student begins 
the first internship in the summer immediately lollowing the sophomore year (65 
accumulated degree credits) The total internship is lor two summers and two 
semesters (60 weel<s) The student enrolls lor 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

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

minimum number is 50 weeks 

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

During the semesters or summer sessions m which the student attends 
school, he pays the regular tuition and lees assessed by the University A $30 
lee is charged lor each 10-week period ol proiessional internship The 
professional intern fee is payable at the beginning of each intern period and is 
not refundable. 

Instructional Television System. An Instructional Television (ITV) system is 
now in operation at the University of Maryland Regularly scheduled courses 
(primarily graduate), as they are being taught, are broadcast "live" from studio 
classrooms at College Park to remote classrooms within a 35-mile radius from 
the University at governmental and industrial organizations Employees at these 
organizations see and hear the broadcast on large TV monitors and are able to 
"talk-back" to the instructor and to the students m the University classroom For 
the most part, senior and graduate courses m engmeenng, computer science, 
math, physics, other sciences, business/management, and other disciplines 
are offered As far as possible, the courses broadcast are those chosen by the 
participating organizations Irom the Schedule ol Classes ol the University 

Professional Societies. Each ol the major departments sponsors a student 

chapter or student section ol a national engineering society The student 
chapters sponsor a vanety of activities including technical meetings, social 
gatherings and college or university service pro/ects Students who have 
selected a mapr are urged to alliliale with the chapter m their department The 
names of the organizations are 

Amencan Institute ol Aeronautics and Astronautics

Engineering Honor Societies. The College ol Engineering and each of the 

engineering departments sponsors an honors society Nominations or 
invitations for membership are usually extended to junior and senior students 
based on scholarship, service and/or other selective cnteria Some of the 
honors organizations are branches of national societies, others are local 
groups

Aerospace engineering is concerned with the physical understanding. 
analysis and design ol aerospace vehicles operating within and above the 
atmosphere Such vehicles range Irom helicopters and oilier vertical lake-off 
aircraft at the low speed end of the llight spectrum to spacecraft operating at 
thousands ol miles per hour during entry into ttie atmospheres ol the earth and 
other planets In between are general aviation and commercial transports Hying 
at speeds well below and close to the speed of sound, and supersonic 
transports, fighters and missiles which cruise at many times the speed of 



College of Engineering Departments, Programs and Curricula 119 



sound Although each speed regime and each vehicle type poses its own 
special research, analysis and design problems, each can be addressed by a 
common set ol technical specialities or disciplines Consider the high-speed 
llight ol NASA's Space Shuttle The airflow over the wings, fuselage and tail 
surfaces create lift, drag and moments on the aircraft II the velocity is high 
enough, such as during reentry of the Space Shuttle into the earth's 
atmosphere, then the temperature ol the airflow becomes extremely high, the 
air becomes chemically reactive, and heating ol the vehicle's surlace becomes 
a major problem The study ol how and why the airllow produces these forces, 
moments and heating is called Aerodynamics. In turn, the motion ol the aircralt 
or space vehicle will respond to. indeed will be determined by. the 
aerodynamic forces and moments The study ol the motion and llight path ol 
such vehicles is called Flight Dynamics 01 course, while executing this motion. 
the vehicle must be structurally sound, that is. its surface and internal structure 
must be able to withstand the severe forces and loads associated with llight 
The study of the mechanical behavior ol materials, stresses and strains. 
dellections and vibrations that are associated with the structure ol the vehicle 
itsell IS called Flight Structures In the same vein, the motion ol any aircralt or 
space vehicle must be initiated and maintained by a propulsive mechanism 
such as the classic combination of a reciprocating engine with a propeller, or 
the more modern turboiets, ramjets and rockets The study of the physical 
fundamentals of how these engines work is called Flight Propulsion. Finally, all 
of the above are synthesized into one system with a specilic application — such 
as a complete transport aircraft or a missile— through a discipline called 
Aerospace Vehicle Design. 

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University ol Maryland 
offers a rigorous and balanced education which includes all of the above 
disciplines The goal ol this program is to create professional aerospace 
engineers with an understanding of the physical fundamentals underlying 
atmospheric and space llight. and with the capability of applying this 
knowledge for (1) research, analysis and design purposes. (2) such as energy 
and surlace transportation, lor example Moreover, the physical background 
and design synthesis that marks aerospace engineering education also 
prepares a student to work productively in other fields 

The facilities of the department include three subsonic wind tunnels (with 
test sections ranging from 2 by 2 ft to 7 75 by 1 1 It ), two supersonic tunnels, 
a hypersonic tunnel, equipment for the static and dynamic testing of structural 
components, and a llight simulator A computational lacility with remote 
terminals located m the department provides access to the University's 
UNIVAC f 180 computer

Agricultural engineering utilizes both the physical and biological sciences 
to help meet the needs ol our increasing world population for food, natural 
fiber and improvement or maintenance of the environment Scientific and 
engineering principles are applied to the conservation and utilization of soil 
and water resources lor lood production and recreation, to the utilization of 
energy to improve labor elficiency and to reduce labonous and menial tasks; 
to the design ol structures and equipment for housing or handling of plants 
and animals to optimize growth potential, to the design of residences to 
improve the standard of living lor the rural population, to the development ol 
methods and equipment to maintain or increase the quality ol food and natural 
fiber, to the flow of supplies and equipment to the agricultural and aquacultural 
production units, and to the How ol products Irom the production units and the 
processing plants to the consumer The agricultural engineer places emphasis 
on maintaining a high quality environment as he works toward developing 
efficient and economical engineering solutions 

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

The Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Department offers programs in 
chemical, materials and nuclear engineenng In addition, study programs in 
the areas of applied polymer science, biochemical engineering, and process 
simulation and control are available The latter programs are interdisciplinary 
with other departments at the University 

The departmental programs prepare an undergraduate for graduate study 
or immediate industrial trial employment following 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 industhal 
complexes 

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

Civil Engineering Curriculum. 

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

The undergraduate program is founded on the basic sciences and 
emphasizes the development of a high degree of technical competence The 
program orients the student toward computer-aided design techniques and 
prepares the student to incorporate new concepts that will develop during his 
or her professional career f^urther. the program stresses the balance between 
technical efficiency and the needs of society The graduate is prepared to 
enter one of the areas mentioned above, or he or she can move into new areas 
of specialization such as oceanographic engineering or the development ot 
facilities (or extra-terrestrial environments 

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

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

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

Apprenticeship programs allow qualified undergraduate students to work 
with research laboratory directors in the Department, thus giving the student a 
chance for a unique experience in research and 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 becoming steadily 
more complex The engineer is the intermediary between science and society 
To solvfc the problems of modern society he/she must fully understand the 
most modern devices and methodologies available To find the best solution 
he/she must have a broad education To find a solution that is also acceptable 
to society he/she must be concerned with the economic, ecologic and fiuman 
factors involved in the problem Finally, current problems frequently require a 
thorough knowledge of advanced mathematics and physics 

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

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

Fire Protection Engineering 

Professor and Chairman: Bryan 
Associate Professor: Hickey 
Lecturer (p.t): Milke. Walton 

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

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineering are relatively 
well-defined and the application of these principles to a modern industrialized 
society has become a specialized activity Control of the hazards in 
manufacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of measures for 
the protection but of the processes themselves Often the most effective 
solution to the problem of safeguarding a hazardous operation lies in the 
modification of special 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 m principle before he or she 
can apply them to special problems The fire protection curriculum emphasizes 
the scientific, technical and humanitarian aspects of fire protection engineering 
and the development of the individual student 

The problems and challenges which confront the fire protection engineer 
include the reduction and control of fire hazards due to processes subject to 
fire or explosion in respect to design, installation and handling, involving both 
physical and human factors, the use of buildings and transportation facilities to 
restrict the spread of fire and to facilitate the escape of occupants m 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

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-engineering, bio-medical, and systems and control engineering, or for 
preparatory entry into a variety of newer or interdisciplinary areas of graduate 
study For example, a student contemplating graduate worl( in environmental 
engineering might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or her 
program, a student interested in systems and control engineering graduate 
work might combine electrical engineering with aerospace, chemical, or 
mechanical engineering 

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

Listed below are the minimum requirements for the B,S -Engineering 
degree with either an Engineering option or an Applied Science option. The 66 
semester credit hours required for the completion of the junior and senior years 
are superimposed upon the freshman and sophomore curriculum of the 
chosen primary field of engineering The student, thus, does not make a 
decision whether to lake 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 f\/1aryland 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 engineenng field 
not the primary or secondary field of engineering concentration 

(2) Students following the "Engineering" option may use up to six semester 
hours 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 m 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 
semester hours in the engineering option and 30 in the Applied Sciences 
option) must be at the 300 course number level or above 

(5) For the applied science option each student is required — urJess 
specifically excused, and if excused, 15 semester hours 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 semester hours of electives must be 
technical (math, physical sciences, or engineering sciences, but may not 
be in the primary or secondary fields of concentration) In the Applied 
Science option, the approved electives should be selected to strengthen 
the student's program consistent with career objectives. Courses in the 
primary or secondary fields of concentration may be used to satisty the 
approved electives requirement 

General Regulations for the B.S. — Engineering Degree. All undergraduate 

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

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

Environmental Engineering. Environmental engineering is the application of 
basic engineering and science to the 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 urban 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 ol primary and 
secondary fields from the wide selection of courses related lo 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 m medicine In 
addition, diagnostic procedures and record-keeping have been greatly 
enhanced by the use of computers and electronic testing equipment There is 
a growing need for physicians and researchers in the life sciences, having 
strong backgrounds in engineenng. who can effectively utilize these 
technologies and who can work with engineers in research and development 

The Bachelor of Science m Engineering degree provides the student an 
excellent opportunity lo develop a professional level of competence in an 
engineering discipline while at the same lime meeting the entrance 
requirements for medical school Under the Applied Science option, the 
student could select any engineering field of most interest lo himfher, 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 m his or her secondary field 

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